Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

You are all blind — unless you see me as I am. This is what I mean by this discourse on maya. Irene used to tell me that Westerners were spiritual, that they have more spiritual understanding than the Easterners. I said she was right. Easterners have no understanding but they have more love. And of course Irene was not pleased; so I had to create an explanation for her, so she was pleased, and God remains pleased.

Remember one point, try to follow it, it's so new and difficult. Why do I say, everything is here within you? It is not above or beneath; the difference is only in the state of consciousness.

For example, an ant is here on the barn floor; it is free, active. You also do actions here on the same floor. But the consciousness of the ant when compared with yours is insignificant. You are conscious of planes flying over the barn. You also know about air flights and so many things. But the ant on the same floor with you is not aware of planes.

The difference between the experience of the ant and your experience is very great, though you are both on the same gross level. So similarly the difference between your experience and my experience is like that between you and the ant; but to me you appear as the ants appear to you!
