WHEN OUR ONLY "INCOME" COMES FROM THE MASTER

Darwin Shaw

 
The Avatar is completely unlimited and all-powerful. His work within us is unlimited, and all barriers can be resolved through his infinite power, which is an attribute of reality. His power is the power of truth, the sword of truth, slaying the falseness that makes us victims bound at subjective levels to material things. In fact, most of his work with us is at subjective levels, because, as Meher Baba said, "All finitehood and limitations are subjective and self-created." [FT Discourses, p. 120] The only limitations we have are those we have imposed on ourselves.

For ages we have been taking duality as our reality, and the Master is trying to raise us out of that level. We have allowed all sorts of self-created conditions to make us happy or unhappy. When our only "income" comes from the Master, we no longer participate in the duality game. He gives us — and we are able to receive — continuous light, continuous freedom, continuous reality. His love sustains us and becomes the primary force working through us.
