HAFIZ REFERS TO THE PLANES
"Oh august master, lead me by the hand because I am traversing the Path on foot (helplessly) as compared with other companions who are riding along it."
... Meher Baba explains that on the fifth plane the pilgrim sometimes desires to have the divine presence, and sometimes attends to worldly duties....
Hafiz evidently refers to his experience of the fifth plane when he says:
"O Hafiz, if you desire the divine presence, then do not allow yourself to be absent."
Hafiz remembers this sixth plane in the following words:
"We have seen the face of the Beloved reflected in the cup (of our mind or heart). O ignorant one, no notion have you of the bliss that we imbibe therefrom."
