GOD KNOWS NOT, TO GOD KNOWS SELF

Meher Baba

 
As ordinary man, when God knows not He is God, for all time His imagination remains the universe and Self remains imaginary.

As the Perfect One, when man becomes God and ceases to remain anything else, for all time and beyond time His imagination disappears and He remains SELF-CONSCIOUS.

As a Perfect Master, when man becomes God and knows He has been man, for all time His creation remains imagination and He remains SELF-CONSCIOUS.

As God-Man, when God becomes man and knows He is God, for the time being His imagination becomes everything and for all time and beyond time He remains SELF-CONSCIOUS.
