LIKE GOD'S HAIR

Meher Baba

 
There are seven worlds (planets in evolution), seven skies, seven suns, seven moons, seven planes and seven heavens (in involution). Why this figure seven? And sanskaras too are of seven colors. Why? Because in the very beginning, when Energy (Pran) clashed with Matter (Akash), it created seven divisions. The explosive friction between Energy and Matter created seven dazzling colors....

But all this explaining of the universe and creation relates to the hair and has nothing to do with the head. So first try to get hold of the head because out of it comes everything.

[Baba drew a figure of a man's head with hair and added:]

The barber's work is to shave the head. And who is the barber in this case! Mahapralaya! For when it occurs, all the hairs — universes — on God's head are shaven off!

It is said that the universes pour out of the Godhead; they are like God's hair. Your head may symbolize God and your hair the universes.
