Manonash (Annihilation of mind) – Part 2

Baba on the Tembi Hill, Meherazad

We must lose ourselves in order to find ourselves. Thus loss itself is gain.

We must die to self to live in God. Thus death means Life.

We must become completely void inside to be completely possessed by God. Thus complete emptiness means absolute Fullness.

We must become naked of selfhood by possessing nothing, so as to be absorbed in the infinity of God. Thus nothing means Everything.

For these last four months, according to ordinary human standards and by ways and means known to me, I have tried my utmost for the achievement of Manonash — and I can say with all truth that I feel satisfied with the work done.

This satisfaction is due to the feeling I have of having regained my Old Life Meher Baba state, yet retaining my New Life ordinary state. I have regained the Knowledge, Strength and Greatness that I had in the Old Life; and retained the ignorance, weaknesses and humility of the New Life. This union of the Old and New Life states has given birth to LIFE — Life that is eternally old and new.

Life for me now means:

First: Free and obligationless life.

Second: Life of a Master in giving orders, and that of a Servant in all humility.

Third: The feeling of absolute conviction that we are all eternally One, Indivisible and Infinite in essence; and with it a feeling of separateness from the Real Omnipresent Self, through ignorance.

Fourth: Life of God in essence, and that of Man in actions.

Fifth: Life of strength born of inherent Knowledge of Oneness, and of weakness born of binding desires., p3028
