IN THE DIVINE MADNESS OF MASTS

Meher Baba

 
In the divine madness of masts, the advancing urge to realize the Highest brings about a complete shattering of the mental structure, and of all its normal tendencies and capacities. The condition of the mind ultimately leads to a total inhibition of the mind, which is the gateway to the unmani state.

The successful termination of the steady impulsion to Truth initiates the mast into the supra-mental state of integral understanding and direct realization of the Supreme Self. But this drive for the Truth, in its process, entails far-reaching ravages in the psychic field. It involves a complete break-up and a reconstitution of the mental structure, and or existing tendencies.

There is no wonder that the inevitable, intermediate mental states are, in their expression, found to be as much removed from average states as are the abnormal states of mad persons.
