Many have yet to pass through the experiences of duality

 

[Interview]

Baba: Anything to ask?

Question: Why do you not bring salvation now?

Baba: The world needs it very badly, but still there is a need for some of its greater evils to be eradicated, and then it will be very soon. I know it because I work it out.

Question:  Will salvation be felt by anybody and everybody?

Baba: Mostly by all, but in degrees. To some more, to others less, but it will be a universal spiritual push.

Question: Why does not everybody find or feel God within?

Baba: It is nobody’s fault. Every soul, sooner or later, has to realize the God within.

Question: Why do a few realize God and many do not?

Baba: It is because these many have yet to pass through the experiences of duality [Maya or illusion] and because to reach unity one has to pass through duality. It is like this. [Meher Baba draws a diagram of one point with two branches shooting out of it and then becoming one again.] These two branches are virtue and vice, good and bad; they are aspects of duality.  I will help you.
