The deeper secrets of the spiritual life are unveiled to those who take risks and make bold experiments with life ~ Meher Baba
"But the funny part is that though the bliss is within everybody, no one is able to find it. They search outside." Meher Baba
"Remember, though, that the fundamental truth of all religions is really the same, because all issue from the same source-God." Meher Baba
Yeah i read you articles about Meher Baba and thought i'd share it with you. She is my spiritual guide (or not so spiritual)
This earth will eventually turn into a moon - 'The sun that gives you light at present will burst after many crores (tens of millions) of years. But another sun will take its place. The earth is getting cooler, and will eventually turn into a moon. But another planet, just like the present earth, will take its place. What has been in the past will be in the future. The processes of evolution and involution will go on forever. Ignorance and creation go hand in hand.' ~ Meher Baba, 15 February 1929, Meherabad, LM3 p1140
Real happiness lies in making others happy. - Meher Baba
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "You will find that in serving others you are serving yourself. The more you remember others with kindness and generosity, the less you remember yourself; and when you completely forget yourself, you find the Source of all Love." - Meher Baba
All life is an effort to attain freedom from self-created entanglement. It is desperate struggle to undo what has been done in ignorance, to throw away the accumulated burden of the past, to find rescue from the debris left by a series of temporary achievements and failures. -AVATAR MEHER BABA

Vasant Pahade posted in AVATAR MEHER BABA Vasant Pahade Vasant Pahade 16 February 08:06 Love makes its captive forget his own indivisible existence by making him feel less and less bound, in his onward march, by the trammels of human limitations, till he reaches a point where he can raise himself to the realization of the highest in himself. When the soul makes itself free from all manifoldness and duality, The Sole Unity That is God answers truly to the oneness of the soul. -AVATAR MEHER BABA

It dose not require a large eye to see a large mountain.Though the eye is small, the soul which sees through it is greater and vaster than all the things which it perceives. In fact,it is so great that it includes all objects,however large or numerous,within itself. For it is not so much that you are within the cosmos as that the cosmos is within you. MEHER BABA
Meher Baba gave this explanation after two of His disciples had an altercation (circa 1942): "No matter how harshly the opposing party treats you, always be calm. Always, however much you are found fault with or are blamed or have high words said to you, bear all with patience. This is real bravery and courage. Man can make a whole army yield to him, but he cannot overcome his own wrath." The God-Man, by C.B. Purdom, p.48.
Upasani Maharaj was Sai’s most beloved disciple and Shirdi Sai’s Grace and Love turned a man with innumerable demons within to become a Perfect Master. He was also The One, who brought Meher Baba into being completely immersed with Godhood from the dimension of duality. In his late teens he entered a forest, climbed a mountain, and entered a cave. Upasani Maharaj spent nine months in the cave. He slowly, slipped into Samadhi, or a very deep meditative zone, and blanked out from this world. He fasted for nine months surviving on whatever little rain water that collected in the cave.And then there was no water even. He was skin and bone, and then it began to pour. The rain water began to enter the cave. He was in a state where he could not even move. The water reached Him, wet His lips and slowly He began to drink the cool rain water.
"Art is a divine thing. It can only be rightly expressed if opposed, to bring out its inner beauty that lies behind." Meher Baba
The satisfaction derived from the fleeting things of life is not lasting; and our wants remain unfulfilled. There is thus a general sense of dissatisfaction accompanied by all kinds of worries. Meher Baba
A story focusing on the spiritual figure Meher Baba, by Max Reif.
"I love artists, because through art one can express oneself beautifully." Meher Baba
The number seven is significant - ‘The evolution of creation has seven stages. There are seven planes and seven types of desires. All these sevens should be eradicated once and for all. However, the number seven is significant. There are seven types of sanskaras (impressions), seven types of colors, seven types of flights of imagination, and seven types of sounds. The reason all these have seven variations is that in the beginning of creation, with the start of the original whim in the Beyond Beyond state of God, there was a clash between Matter (Akash) and Energy (Pran), and Energy's powers were divided into seven forces. The original sound coming out of the creation or Om point, also turns into seven sounds. ……In the Gross world the shadow of this melody is again divided into seven parts. ….Everything is made up of seven: seven subdivisions of the first Subtle plane (the Astral), seven stages of evolution, seven planes and seven heavens in involution.’ 12 January 1930, Nasik, LM4 p1264 ‘Ther ...
"Art, when inspired with love, leads to higher realms. Love art, and that art will open for you the inner life." Meher Baba
The only REAL KNOWLEDGE is the Knowledge that God is the inner dweller in good people and so-called bad, in saint and so-called sinner.~Meher Baba
After long gap with my buddies Praveen Padigam Meher Baba
Out of many who get hold of the pearl, one swims back up to the surface with it; the others stay stuck on the floor gazing with wonder at the pearl. Out of many who swim up to the surface, one returns to the shore. This one is the Perfect Master (Qutub) and He shows His pearl to the others — the divers, the swimmers, the paddlers, and so encourages them in their efforts. — Meher Baba THE EVERYTHING AND THE NOTHING, pp. 20-21
To attain union is so impossibly difficult because it is impossible to become what you already are! Union is nothing other than knowledge of oneself as the Only One. Meher Baba
Jesus, relationships and non duality, He is the teacher and his the teachings for the Western Mind of today. There is none like him. On Jesus, if we chop away all the drama and BS - forget the cultural divergence of the period Jesus lived in and our own. Forget about the Churches, (not all of which distort his message) and in most Churches, personally I can hear straight through the distortions and like a soothing nurturing balm for my inner depths be so deeply and profoundly uplifted by this mans powerful testament. From His own direct Revelation of the Oneness between Himself, God and all of His brothers and sisters. Which for Jesus clearly included the whole of humanity, Everyone, no matter what Their role or status in the community. His Revelation or enlightenment, showed Him 'directly' that "God is Love". What does it matter the quibbles and arguments, anyone can find fault with anything. There is nothing special or of any merit in that. It may get you some attention, yes! Maybe make one feel a litt ...
"Pure love is matchless in majesty, it has no parallel in power and there is no darkness it cannot dispel." Meher Baba
The mind is the treasure-house of learning, but the heart is the treasure-house of spiritual wisdom.--Meher Baba.

Love and happiness are the only important things in life, and they are both absent in the dry and factual knowledge which is accessible to the intellect. Spirituality does not consist of intellectual knowledge of true values but in their realization. It is this knowledge of inner realization which is far more dependent upon the heart than on the mind. Knowledge of the intellect alone is on the same footing as mere information and, being superficial, it moves on the surface of life. It gives the shadow and not the substance of reality. The hidden depths of the ocean of life can be gauged only by sounding the heart. ♥♥♥ Meher Baba ♥♥♥♥ (from Discourses Page 97)

Through unification with the higher Self, man perceives the infinite Self in all selves. He becomes free by outgrowing and discarding the limitations of the ego-life. The individual soul has to realize with full consciousness its identity with the universal Soul. Man shall reorient life in the light of this ancient Truth and will readjust his attitude toward his neighbors in everyday life. To perceive the spiritual value of oneness is to promote real unity and cooperation. Brotherhood then becomes a spontaneous outcome of true perception. The new life that is based upon spiritual understanding is an affirmation of the Truth. It is not something that belongs to utopia but is completely practical. Now that humanity is thrown into the fire of bloody conflicts, through immense anguish it is experiencing the utter instability and futility of a life based upon purely material conceptions. The hour is near when man in his eager longing for real happiness will seek its true source. - Discourses by Meher Baba
What is Love: To give and never ask. What leads to this Love? Grace. What leads to this Grace? Grace is not cheaply bought. It is gained by being always ready to serve, and reluctant to be served. There are a number of ways to achieve this this Grace: Wishing well for others at the cost of one’s self. Never backbiting. Tolerance supreme. Trying not to worry (Trying not to worry is almost impossible, so try) Thinking more of good points in others and less of their bad points. -AVATAR MEHER BABA
"...the alternating experiences of life and gathering and spending of sanskaras, is really quite difficult to understand." Meher Baba
The principal teaching of Upasni Maharaj was that there are three rules that if observed sincerely lead to a life worth living... Not to trouble anybody in the least. To suffer for and be useful to others. To remain contented in a state of Be as it may. Upasni Maharaj was the principal teacher of Meher Baba. Meher Baba first met Upasni Maharaj in 1914 when Upasni was staying in Shirdi with Sai Baba. According to Meher Baba, Upasni Maharaj gave him divine knowledge after he received God-realization in January 1914 at the age of 19 from Hazrat Babajan.
God is a thousand times closer to each one of us than our very breath, and God loves us more than we can ever love ourselves, for he is us and there is nothing besides him. The Infinite is the only One who exists, and what appears to exist is nothing but illusion. This life is illusion and it is false. Illusion creates duality and because of the impact of this duality upon our lives, it is easy to forget God and become absorbed in the illusion.Meher Baba...

My thoughts on Valentines Day are plentiful... Bottom line for every single one of us is: WE want to be happy. There are seven different kinds of "LOVE" so again we must become aware of the definitions thru experience. Relationships are but one way to learn & grow (evolve) in the midst of "tension" which is ever present in every human. Relationships give us CHOICE and speed up the process. For those that have the contemplative mind... A quote: "In order to solve the problem of sex, the mind must first understand that both alternatives (indulgence & repression) are equally the creation of imagination working under the deluding influencing of CRAVING. Meher Baba.
"A mind that is fast is sick. A mind that is slow is sound. A mind. . that is still is divine.". Meher Baba
True love is unconquerable and irresistible, gathering power and spreading, until eventually it transforms everyone it touches. ~Meher Baba

"True love is not for the faint-hearted"-Meher Baba. A little sweeter than Truman's if you can't stand the heat,...
"Once Meher Baba asked us to define God. We made various attempts, but Baba was not satisfied. He said when the question 'What is God?' is asked, the answer is 'What is not God?' He then continued, 'Age after age, from time immemorial, you have been trying to find God, but you do not do so. Only one in tens of millions somehow or other realises God. But why do so many sincerely, wholeheartedly strive to find him, and so few do so? If God exists, and he does, then why cannot we find him?' "Baba answered his own question. 'It is foolishness on the part of man seeking to find him. How can anybody find something which is never lost? God eternally is. Stop your search to find him, lose yourself, and you will realise him.' "That is what Baba taught us: no sooner do you lose yourself than you realise God. Not by search, but by effacing ourselves. Not by asserting ourselves, that we are the ones searching for God, postively asserting ourselves, but by losing ourselves in his love." ~ Eruch Jessawala ♡
"A tavern-keeper first receives cash from a customer before handing him the wine glass. He checks the coin to ascertain whether it is genuine or counterfeit. Similarly, the Sadguru also demands his price - not in money, but in love, before giving you the gift of love. You can deceive a wine-seller by passing him counterfeit coins, but never a Sadguru. He has no use for false coins - the show of love. With me, before the exchange takes place, one has to pay the full price. The price of knowing me is love - love, pure and simple" ~Avtar Meher Baba 'Jai Beloved Avtar Meher Baba'
Even while many of us are being showered with a torrent of disasters and devastating events in our external realities; it is VERY IMPORTANT for us to visualize that we are in the safety and comfort of GOD'S HANDS in our inner, spiritual reality. Otherwise, the worrying will cause extreme, unnecessary, extra pain and suffering. Meher Baba teaches us that external suffering is there to help us realize that we are SPIRITUAL BEINGS. Any external event can not harm our spiritual selves unless we allow it to do so. So let's all remember we are in His Hands, safe and cozy, warm and happy.
"Do your best. Then, don't worry,. be happy.". -- Meher Baba

Never try to match your limited intellect or your reasoning against your Masters will. Spontaneous acceptance by you of anything the Master says or does & your unquestioning obedience to him will safely steer you through any so-called crisis that you may have to face. - Meher Baba

Why the Occult? THE OCCULT is a study in contrasts. Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, aboard the multimillion-dollar Apollo 14 — a symbol of the ultimate in scientific rationalism — attempts to mentally transmit ESP cards to a group back on earth. At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology — the epitome of 20th-century science and technology — Professor Huston Smith describes a seminar with some of his best students: "I cannot recall the exact progression of the topics, but it went something like this: Beginning with Asian philosophy, it moved on to meditation, then yoga, then Zen, then Tibet, then successively to the Bardo Thodol, tantra, the kundalini, the chakras, the I Ching, karage and aidido, the yang-yin, macrobiotic (brown rice) diet, Gurdjieff, Meher Baba, astrology, astral bodies, auras, UFO's, tarot cards, parapsychology, witchcraft, and magic ...

Joseph Fein tagged me in a discussion with Sammer Aly and Steve Schleder -- but I could not find the specific reference. Some general observations: I confess to being an apologist for Avatar of the Age Meher Baba. My specific conviction experience of Meher Baba is as Jesus Come Again, so practicing Christianity for four decades has been quasi rational. Lately I have gotten interested in becoming as Jewish as I can given my Meher Baba-ism and my conviction that Jesus is Messiah and God-Man AND my wife tells me that if I want to eat kosher I am ON MY OWN! This trending underlies my support of Israel on the Foreign Policy front. Uncritical support? Worth discussing as we have been. OK -- seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all things will be added unto you! Politics for me HAS to be my applied Religion. But what is the Universal Religion? I say Friendship with ALL, even with Rogue Elephants that may be trying to kill you and destroy crops. Your friendship for them CAN included shooting them dead if ne ...

"Don't Worry, Be Happy" is a song by musician Bobby McFerrin. Released in September 1988, it became the first a cappella song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a position it held for two weeks. The song's title is taken from a famous quote by Meher Baba. The original music video stars Robin Williams and Bill Irwin.[4] The "instruments" in the a cappella song are entirely overdubbed voice parts and other sounds made by McFerrin, using no instruments at all. The music video for the song is considerably shorter than the album version.

- Birth control - In view of the claims that children have on married lives, birth control deserves careful attention and critical examination. The question must not be considered from the point of view of any one special or limited interest but from the standpoint of the ultimate well-being of the individuals and society. The right opinion in this respect, as in all respects, must above everything be based upon spiritual considerations. The attitude that most persons have towards birth control is oscillating and confused because it contains an admixture of good and bad elements. While birth control is right in its aim of securing the regulation of population, it is disastrously unfortunate in the choice of its means. There can be no doubt that the regulation of childbearing is often desirable for personal and social reasons. Uncontrolled breeding intensifies the struggle for existence and may bring about a social order where ruthless competition becomes inevitable. Apart for creating a responsibility for ...
- Married life is enriched by children - Though the children are thus the beneficiaries of the married life of the parents, the married life of the parents is in its turn enriched by the presence of the children. Children give to parents an opportunity for expressing and developing a real and spontaneous love in which sacrifice becomes easy and delightful. And the part played by children in the life of parents is of tremendous importance for the spiritual advancement of the parents themselves. It therefore follows that when children make their appearance in married life, they ought to be wholeheartedly welcomed by the parents. - Discourses by Meher Baba

- Married life must be aligned with divine plan - The spiritual value of married life is directly related to the nature of the preponderant factors that determine its daily course. If it is based upon shallow considerations, it can deteriorate into a partnership in selfishness aimed against the rest of the world. If it is inspired by lofty idealism, it can rise to a fellowship that not only requires and calls forth increasingly greater sacrifices for each other but actually becomes a medium through which the two souls can offer their united love and service to the whole family of humanity. When married life is thus brought into direct line with the divine plan for the evolution of the individuals, it becomes a pure blessing for the children who are the fruit of the marriage. For they have the advantage of absorbing a spiritual atmosphere from the very beginning of their earthly career. - Discourse by Meher Baba
SPIRITUALITY REQUIRES SUBORDINATION OF MATTER, NOT REJECTION Owing to the multifarious cravings of the mind, matter has a tendency to assume importance for itself. For the drunkard wine is everything; for the greedy man the hoarding of money is all-important; and for the flirt the chase of sensations is the supreme end of life. These are examples of how, through diverse cravings of the mind, matter becomes unduly obtrusive and perverts the expressions of the spirit. The way to restore the dignity of the spirit is not to reject matter but to use it for the claims of the spirit. This is possible only when the spirit is free from all cravings and is fully conscious of its own true status. When this is achieved, man may have material goods but is not caught up in them. When necessary he may use them as means for the life of the spirit but he is not allured by them nor does he become restless for them. He realizes that in themselves they do not constitute the real significance of life. He dwells in the materia ...

- Conditions of marriage precipitate changes in inner life - In one sense married life may be looked upon as the intensification of most human problems. As such it becomes the rallying ground for the forces of bondage as well as for the forces of freedom, the factors of ignorance as well as the factors of light. As the married life of ordinary persons is determined by mixed motives and considerations, it inevitably invites an uncompromising opposition between the higher and lower self. Such opposition is necessary for the wearing out of the lower self and the dawning of the true divine Self. Married life develops so many points of contact between two souls that severance of all connection would mean the unsettlement and disarrangement of practically the whole tenor of life. Since this difficulty of breaking away from one another invites and precipitates inner readjustment, marriage is really a disguised opportunity for the souls to establish a real and lasting understanding that can cope with the most com ...

"No general rule or process can be laid down for the attainment of the ultimate reality, or as you term it, the wider consciousness. Every individual has got to work out his own salvation, and for that matter, he himself has got to create and choose the Path, which is mostly determined and expressed by the collective force and momentum of impressions (called sanskaras in Sanskrit) acquired during previous lives." --Meher Baba

- Married life calls forth sublimation - The relative values of the various sides of the limited personality can be best appreciated when they become intertwined and appear in varied settings and perspectives. It is difficult to discriminate between them if they appear fitfully in a disconnected series. In married life there is ample room for varied experience, with the result that the different tendencies latent in the mind begin to organize around the crystallized scheme of married life. This organization of varied purposes not only provides an unlimited field for discrimination between the higher and lower values but also creates between them a necessary tension, which requires and calls forth effective and intelligent sublimation. - Discourses by Meher Baba
I'm single because I take relationships seriously,e is the solution to our difficulties and our troubles, Meher Baba
- Married life: Utterly different from promiscuity - Married life almost always makes many demands upon both partners for mutual adjustment and understanding, and creates many problems that were not originally expected. Though this might in a sense be true of life in general, it is particularly true of married life. In married life the two souls get linked in many ways, with the result that they are called upon to tackle the whole complex of personality rather than any simple problem created by some isolated desire. This is precisely why married life is utterly different from promiscuous sexual relations. Promiscuous sex attempts to separate the problem of sex from other needs of the developing personality and seeks to solve it in isolation from them. Although this kind of solution might seem to be easy, it turns out to be very superficial and has the further disadvantage of sidetracking people from attempting the real solution. - Discourses by Meher Baba
The answer to today's trivia song is... THE WHO! "Baba O'Riley" is a song written by Pete Townshend for the English rock band The Who. Roger Daltrey sings most of the song, with Pete Townshend singing the middle eight: "Don't cry/don't raise your eye/it's only teenage wasteland". The title of the song is derived from the combination of the song's philosophical and musical influences, Meher Baba and Terry Riley. The song was ranked number one on Snoozer magazine's 250 Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Songs. "Baba O'Riley" is often mistakenly called "Teenage Wasteland" after the phrase repeated throughout the song. "Teenage Wasteland" was in fact a working title for the song in its early incarnations as part of the Lifehouse project, but eventually became the title for a different but related song by Townshend, which is slower and features more lyrics. A version of "Teenage Wasteland" is featured on the Lifehouse Chronicles, a six disc set of music related to the Lifehouse project, and on several Townshend compilatio ...
- Married life: A spiritual enterprise - Most persons enter into married life as a matter of course, but marriage will become a help or a hindrance according to the manner in which it is handled. There is no doubt that some immense spiritual possibilities are accessible through married life, but all this depends upon having the right attitude. From the spiritual point of view, married life will be a success only if it is thoroughly determined by the vision of Truth. It cannot offer much if it is based upon nothing more than the limited motives of mere sex, or if it is inspired by considerations that usually prevail in a business partnership. It has to be undertaken as a real spiritual enterprise that is intended to discover what life can be at its best. When the two partners launch together upon the spiritual adventure of exploring the higher possibilities of the spirit, they cannot at the outset limit their experiment by any nice calculations concerning the nature and amount of individual gain. - Discour ...

Bhaktivedanta Swami, Śrīla Prabhupāda, once said that religion without philosophy is fanaticism and philosophy without religion is mental speculation. For a sincere student engaged in God realization, major philosophical points should be understood in the light of the guru, scripture and practical devotional service. One of the first points to understand is the position of the spiritual master. How is he related to Kṛṣṇa? Is he Kṛṣṇa? Is he an ordinary man? How should the disciple approach him? How can one know that the spiritual master is bona fide? What is the duty of the spiritual master? What are his symptoms?

LORD MEHER SEPTEMBER 1933 - I AM BEYOND ALL PRINCIPLES, BINDINGS, LAWS AND MATTERS PERTAINING TO WORLDLY DUTIES. Some things in particular were bothering Herbert, and Baba discussed matters with him at considerable length. Herbert spoke out, "You promise to speak, but you do not do it. What will the world think of you?" Baba's reply to Herbert was very poignant: It is good for mankind, rather essential, to adhere to religious and moral principles and observe religious bindings; but for the spiritual path, they are unnecessary. I am beyond all principles, bindings, laws and matters pertaining to worldly duties. I am perfect and there is no restraint or binding for me. I have broken all barriers and I have gone beyond all laws! According to the moral code of the world, one's word or promise is considered by mankind to be sacred. But he who has gone beyond time, space, cause and effect is not limited by anything. For him, there is no such thing as bondage. The infinite cannot be bound by anything finite, how ...

The Council of Sages A few years ago, when Tara and I were in the Himalayas, we met a 125 year old Himalayan Master, named Paramananda Giri Maharaj, at the cave where he lived. He had spent 10 years with Anandamayi Ma, from whom he had received many blessings, and he had been a close friend of Neem Karoli Baba, Ram Das' guru. He spoke perfect English and I asked him many questions that he was happy to answer. When I asked him what the Himalayan Masters do in their caves, he replied, "The Himalayan Masters, through their meditations, prayers and mantras, are sending out powerful positive vibrations to benefit all beings on Earth." Then, he paused and said, "Not only all beings on Earth but all beings throughout the Universe." There exists a network of High Masters who watch over the spiritual evolution of humanity from behind the scene. Around the world, in different cultures, they are called by different names. Some call them the Ascended Masters, the Great White Brotherhood, the Spiritual Hierarchy or th ...

"LOVE is essentially self-communicative: those who do not have it catch it from those who have it. No amount of rites, rituals, ceremonies, worship, meditation, penance and remembrance can produce love in themselves. None of these is necessarily a sign of love. On the contrary, those who sigh loudly and weep and wail have yet to experience love. Love sets on fire the one who finds it. At the same time it seals his lips so that no smoke comes out." -Who else... Love Personified: Meher Baba
ABOUT ME The sole aim in my life is to know and realize, consciously, the Real Answer to the question Who am I? I have been fortunate to come into inner contact with an authentic God-realized Master, Avatar Meher Baba, who is always guiding and directing me in every moment of this life on this beautiful and exciting journey towards achieving That Goal. It was in India in intimate direct contact with Avatar Meher Baba's last living male disciple, Bhau Kalchuri, that my life was completely and utterly transformed. I grew up a devout atheist fundamentalist. In my last couple years at UNC I began going inside experimenting with various styles of meditation. But it wasn't until my first visit to the Meher Spiritual Center in Myrtle Beach, SC that my quest began to become very serious and intense. Shortly after a profound divine experience while meditating in Baba's Bedroom I went to India. And it was in India where I ended up doing dictation for Bhau. After about a month, with nothing out of the ordinary happe ...

INTELLECTUAL CONVICTION HINDERS SPONTANEOUS LOVE When the mind seeks conviction or corroboration (through objective proofs and miracles as an aid to spiritual understanding), it is encroaching upon the sphere which properly belongs to the heart. Conviction and corroboration become important when a person desires guarantees for securing certain definite and tangible results in the objective world. Even if we suppose that a person is intellectually convinced of the existence of God by means of miracles or some such objective data, this will not necessarily release his heart. The allegiance which he might perhaps give to God as a result of such cold revelation will be either through fear or through a sense of duty. Love in which there is no sense of restraint cannot be born of a conviction which is based upon things accessible to the mind. And where there is no love, there is no bliss or beauty of being. In fact, God’s nature as the ocean of love cannot be grasped by the mind. God has to be known through l ...

This morning in meditation . . . Breathing in and out of the Heart . . . seeking to soften the edges of judgment and disconnection . . . reflecting on Deborah Metzger's heartfelt question from yesterday: "is there no place for outrage in our practice/beingness when such wrongs are perpetrated? What is right and skillful practice in such situations?" My own practice is to start each morning with quieting the mind through 30 - 50 minutes of vipassana practice, or mantra practice. Then I sit in front of my puja table where I have a statue of my guru, and statues and photos of other Beings who open my Heart . . . Meher Baba, Neem Karoli Baba, Ramana Maharshi, Hanuman, Buddha, Christ, The Dalai Lama, etc. I gaze at each of them for a few moments, inviting them into my Heart and asking that they help me to soften the edges of the mind. I also keep photos of the human beings - often political figures - who I have the most difficulty with. I gaze at them until I can see them as expressions of the One Light . . . ...

"When you feel something as intuition and have no doubt about it, then know it is real. Passing doubtful thoughts and temporary emotional feelings should not be given importance. But when you feel it touches your heart, follow it. When it is from the mind, it is not intuition. Intuition means that which comes from the heart. In the divine path, first there is intuition, then inspiration, then illumination, and finally Realization. If it touches your heart, follow it." ~Meher Baba

My visit to Myrtle Beach to meet Bhauji in May 2010
If you don't ask the answer is always no !
With me, no one can live what the world considers a moral life. Here, we are concerned with spirituality, not morals. A spiritual life is not ruled nor bound by any principles. The sanskaras of each one are different, and so the behavior and temperament of everyone are different. In a virtuous life, evil is suppressed and good surfaces; but the evil is still there. The bad sanskaras remain and have to be worked out, if not in this life then in the next or the one after. In the spiritual life, both good and bad sanskaras express themselves, and both get nullified. A spiritual life leads one toward naturalness, whereas a virtuous life, in the guise of humility, inflates the ego and perpetuates it! A spiritual life, though, is only led under the guidance and orders of the Avatar or Perfect Master, who knows the pulse of everyone and treats everyone according to his particular malady. You do not like Aloba's behavior, but his behavior was quite natural and necessary for him. How can you understand that? Peopl ...

Give up parrotry in all it's forms; start practicing whatever you truly feel to be true and justly to be just. Do not make a show of your faith and beliefs. You have not to give up your religion, but to give up clinging to the husk of mere ritual and ceremony. To get to the fundamental core of Truth underlying all religions, reach beyond religion Meher Baba
LOVE UNADULTERATED Love as it is generally known and commonly understood is but an attachment with selfish thoughts and motives involved. Pure, real unadulterated Love has in it not even a tinge of lust. Lust for sex, lust for power, lust for name, lust for fame, lust for self-comforts defile the purity of Love. Pure, real Love has also its stages, the highest being the gift of God to love Him. When one truly loves God, one longs for union with Him, and this supreme longing is based on the desire of giving up one's whole being to the Beloved. When one loves a Perfect Master, one longs to serve Him, to surrender to His Will, to obey Him wholeheartedly. Thus pure, real Love longs to give and does not ask for anything in return. Even when one truly loves humanity, one longs to give one's all for its happiness. When one truly loves one's country, there is the longing to sacrifice ones very life, without seeking reward and without the least thought of having loved and served. When one truly loves one's friends ...

Meher Baba said, "There are fifty-six Sadgurus or Perfect Masters in the world at all times. They are always one in consciousness. They are always different in function. For the most part, they live and work apart from and unknown to the general public; but five, who act in a sense as a directing body, always work in public and attain to public prominence and importance. In Avataric periods, the Avatar, as a supreme Sadguru, takes his place as the head of this body and of the spiritual hierarchy as a whole."
How to "cultivate" love??? Love is our essence, we already are love, we feel it or we don't!!!
To understand the problem of humanity as merely a problem of bread is to reduce humanity to the level of animality. But even when man sets himself the limited task of securing purely material adjustment, he can only succeed in this attempt if he has spiritual understanding. Economic adjustment is impossible unless people realize that there can be no planned and cooperative action in economic matters until self-interest gives way to self-giving love. Otherwise, with the best of equipment and efficiency in the material spheres, humanity cannot avoid conflict and insufficiency. - Discourses by Meher Baba.
War: a symptom of graver causes. At present the urgent problem facing humanity is to devise ways and means of eliminating competition, conflict, and rivalry in all the subtle and gross forms that they assume in the various spheres of life. Military wars are, of course, the most obvious sources of chaos and destruction. However, wars in themselves do not constitute the central problem for humanity but are rather the external symptoms of something graver at their root. Wars and the suffering they bring cannot be completely avoided by mere propaganda against war; if they are to disappear from human history, it will be necessary to tackle their root cause. Even when military wars are not being waged, individuals or group of individuals are constantly engaged in economic or some other subtle form of warfare. Military wars, with all the cruelty they involve, arise only when these underlying causes are aggravated. Egoism and selfishness. The cause of the chaos that precipitates itself in wars is that most person ...
As in all great critical periods of human history, humanity is now going through the agonizing travail of spiritual rebirth. Great forces of destruction are afoot and seem to be dominant at the moment, but constructive and creative forces that will redeem humanity are also being released through several channels. Although the working of these forces of light is chiefly silent, they are eventually bound to bring about those transformations that will make the further spiritual advance of humanity safe and steady. It is all part of the divine plan, which is to give to the hungry and weary world a fresh dispensation of the eternal and only Truth. - Discourses by Meher Baba
The universe and bodies (Gross, Subtle and Mental) are illusion, and cause imagination to persist (impress), but the soul does not know this because it does not know itself. The universe and bodies, 50,400,000 pre-human forms and 8,400,000 human forms, have come into being out of each soul's not knowing itself. But on the basis of their existence, and through them, each soul can know itself. Through the medium of millions of bodies that come out of the infinite unconsciousness of each soul, each soul knows itself. Thus the creation goes on spreading out ad infinitum, for each soul creates infinitely out of its unconsciousness, out of its own unconscious Infinite Intelligence. The universe and the body have come out of the nothing, and in the end the soul has no connection with them. Soul is the reality. The universe and its experience are a medium for the soul to know itself. No sooner the soul knows itself, than creation and body are at an end, for as it is, they are nothing and soul is everything. For t ...

People always make a mistake when they talk of leading a simple life. To live such a life is infinitely difficult. Outwardly, a person may wear plain garments and have a simple diet, but this is not living a simple life! The spiritual life is lived when a person is free of all desires, thus becoming completely open and guileless. What is the use of only outwardly living in such a way? The elaborate dress of desires and longings is there, side by side with a feasting ego! The real meaning of leading a simple life is to be totally desireless, and to become desireless is impossible without a feeling of love for God." Meher Baba Lord Meher by Bhau Kalchuri, p.1470
"All illusion comes and goes, but the soul remains unchanged. What is meant by God-realization is to actually experience this important thing — that the soul is eternal." Message at Nasik (December 1936)

"Avoid all temptations, and most of all lust; Be honest and fair and noble and just." Meher Baba
Try to be a lover of God. If you find out how to love him, you may go mad. The real lover is never influenced by the world or what people think of him. He will not even care for his life. He will remain what he is — totally indifferent to the world, unashamed of anything.

LOVE & DEVOTION.Love burns the lover. Devotion burns the Beloved. Love seeks happiness for the Beloved. Devotion seeks for blessings from the Beloved. Love seeks to shoulder the burden of the Beloved. Devotion throws the burden on the Beloved. Love gives; Devotion asks. Love is silent and sublime, devoid of outward expression. Devotion expresses itself outwardly. Love does not require the presence of the Beloved in order to love. Devotion demands the presence of the Beloved to express affection for the Beloved.MEHER BABA

“Take life lightly and God seriously. But you take life seriously and God lightly.” -AVATAR MEHER BABA
From Robert Ahrens: For those who haven't heard, Ralph Hernandez passed on to his Beloved Meher Baba early this morning [5/30/13]. He and his wife, Stella, met Baba in 1958 at the Center in Myrtle Beach. Ralph traveled to India in 1962 to be with Baba at the East-West Gathering. They have lived in the Myrtle Beach area for many years and have been stalwart and welcoming faces to all who have visited the Center during that time. Originally from Cuba, Ralph carried that certain flair that made him immediately attractive to others and a deep fountain of life that bubbled forth in his stories about Baba. Have a great onward journey, Ralph!
"The book that I shall make people read is the book of the heart, which holds the key to the mystery of life." as quoted in Life Eternal : Teachings of Meher Baba (2005) by Patra Chosnyid Skybamedpa
Ralph. Dana Ferry expresses it perfectly: "Ralph and Stella are two of the wonderful stalwarts of the Meher Center. They have always been there for all of us, welcoming us with love and food and best of all, stories of their blessed contact with Beloved Meher Baba. Ralph always greeted one with a loving smile on an ever-handsome face, a reminder of where that sweetness emanated from. We will never forget you Ralph. Thank you for all you have given us." He truly was sweet and good - and handsome. I am happy to have known him.

Now that Baba is physically among you, you feel the contact, but when I leave you, gradually this cools down. How to retain it constantly? Well, do you feel constantly hungry? When you work hard, you get hungry. When you feel hungry, you take food, and then you forget about the food. So work for Me in such a way that you feel hungry for Me. Sometimes think of Me, sometimes work for Me, sometimes talk about Me, but not all the time. If you go on eating continually you will get indigestion! Before you go to bed, say, "Baba, I entrust all that I did, thought or spoke, good and bad, to You." When you get up, say, "Baba, I now begin entrusting all — thoughts, words and deeds — to You." Say this just twice each day for five minutes, but with all your heart in it. Do that and make Me responsible for all you do or think. Then you are free;...but you must do it honestly. This much will be more than sufficient to maintain the contact with Me. I am the Ocean; I can accept both flowers, coconuts and also filth. S ...

[Month of Moksha] {1st June 2013} (WHAT IS MOKSHA?) "Most God-realized souls leave the body at once and forever, and remain eternally merged in the unmanifest aspect of God.

Many people feel so inferior and are so scared that they are wrong somehow or that there must be something terribly, terribly wrong with them. They are like scared little children trying desperately to prove to you and everyone else that they are lovable. That's why they sometimes seem so arrogant or defensive. Arguing with them will not help, but loving them can! You can never force someone to be loving and kind, you can only love them into loving! The next time you are annoyed by someone who is arrogant or defensive, just think of them as a scared little child of 3 or 4. That's probably closer to their true inner state.
I love you but you must forget you because I hated your actions that have become do it do not know you anymore . Where is the person who loved him ... where it all tenderness unfortunately no longer Ahtof , I wish you success in your life and find someone who meshes with him ,,, I can not stress over it
Millions of men of God stand in a queue to gain entrance to the God-Man, and out of millions, only one crosses the threshold. Out of millions who cross the threshold, only one can see Me as I really am. You must strive to see Me as I really am. Don't let me down Meher Baba
The happiness of God-realization is self-sustained, eternally fresh and unfailing, boundless and indescribable. And it is for this happiness that the world has sprung into existence. -AVATAR MEHER BABA

You love rice and curry; this is lust. You love a cigar; lust again. You love curry and eat it, but do not give anything by the act. You finish the beloved!” -Avatar Meher Baba.
''Think always of me, whatever you may be doing,then gradually you will realize that it is I doing everything through you"-Avatar Meher Baba
When I say I am the Avatar, there are a few who feel happy, some who feel shocked, and many who hearing me claim this, would take me for a hypocrite, a fraud, a supreme egoist, or just mad. If I were to say every one of you is an Avatar, a few would be tickled, and many would consider it a blasphemy or a joke. The fact that God being One, Indivisible and equally in us all, we can be nought else but one, is too much for the duality-conscious mind to accept. Yet each of us is what the other is. I know I am the Avatar in every sense of the word, and that each one of you is an Avatar in one sense or the other. -AVATAR MEHER BABA
To love God in the most practical way is to love our fellow beings. If we feel for others in the same way as we feel for our own dear ones, we love God. If, instead of seeing faults in others we look within ourselves we are loving God. -AVATAR MEHER BABA
“We can never have any vigorous world culture by merely piling together certain isolated elements, selected from the present diversity of culture; that way, we shall only succeed in getting a patchwork of little vitality. A hodge-podge of collected ideas can never be a substitute for a direct and fresh perception of the Goal. The new world-culture will have to emerge from an integral vision of the Truth independent of existing traditions and not from the laborious process of selection and compilation of conserved values.” - Beloved Meher Baba
“God alone is real. He does everything for everyone. We cannot escape His will.” Meher Baba

I am also an artist. I have the whole world as my canvas. I paint souls... -- Meher Baba
Know you all that if I am the Highest of the High my role demands that I strip you of your possessions and wants, consume all your desires and make you desireless rather than satisfy your desires. Sadhus, saints, yogis and walis can give you what you want; but I take away your wants and free you from attachments and liberate you from the bondage of ignorance. I am the one to take, not the one to give, what you want as you want...Meher Baba
