Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

God is One Indivisible. The many divisions you see are only apparent. They are the outcome of ignorance. How can this be explained? How can ignorance know itself as ignorance? The dream state that you experience will give you some idea about this.

Suppose you go to sleep and I appear to you in your dream saying, "Shastri, this is just a dream." You will reply, "How can this be so? I see the sun, the sky — I see you so lovingly talking to me. It is too true to be a dream." But when you wake up, you would say to yourself, "What Baba said in the dream was a fact."

At present you see Me sitting with you. Now I say that all that you see and feel in this "awake" state is also a dream. The whole universe is only a dream. It can be called a "waking-dream." When by My Grace you realize God, you will know that what I am saying now is the Truth.
