LIGHT AND DARKNESS

Meher Baba

 
God is the real, Infinite Light, and the infinite, subtle gas is real, Infinite Darkness.

The nebula, which is created by the compact of Space [Akash] and Energy [Pran] and subtle gas, is false light. The indescribably huge and innumerable pieces into which the nebula breaks up are so dazzlingly bright that each of them surpasses the light of billions of suns put together. But they are not hot.

Each piece of the nebula is so dazzlingly brilliant that it equals the light of ten crores [hundreds of millions] of suns combined, and its size equals that of a thousand millions of suns. And there are millions and billions of such pieces of nebula, all originating from the tiniest Creation Point!

To sum up: God is the Real Infinite Light; the infinite subtle gas is the Infinite Real Darkness; the nebula is false light; the sparks or heavenly bodies are the shadows of the false light; and our world is false darkness.
