Meher Baba

Answer: "This needs a long explanation. Universe, if understood as created, has an entirely different meaning from our viewpoint that universe does not exist. Actually it is only God who appears as universe. But it is necessary to creation to have this dual idea of God and universe.

"To know the exact meaning of the 'awake' state, one has to experience the 'dream' state. Dreams can be good and bad. In dreams you can suffer or enjoy. But when you wake up you find it is all a dream. But this dream should be so adjusted that it awakens you soon. Sacrifice, character and selfless service help in waking you soon."
