HE WHO IS KNOWLEDGE ITSELF CAN DO THIS

Meher Baba

 
But where are these planes and spheres? They are all within you. You are not conscious of them because different states of consciousness give rise to different levels of consciousness. For example, take an ant as representing the first plane, a dog as the third plane, an elephant the fifth plane and a man the seventh plane of consciousness. The ant, the dog, the elephant and the man move on the same earth, but there are worlds of difference in their levels of consciousness.

The Limited and the Limitless lie within you. Rather they are you, but you do not experience them so because of the falseness attached to the Real 'I' which causes it to play the part of the false 'I'.

All upheavals are in the limitations of the consciousness. A Pir can make one see God, but even then one's real 'I' still has falseness attached to it. A Sadguru, at the right moment, whisks away entirely the entire falseness. And how does He do it? That is inexplicable. Only he who is Knowledge Itself can do this. When falseness is entirely shed, Real Individuality is established. This is the 'I am God' state.
