Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

Wine is prepared by the crushing and further crushing of grapes, when it acquires the capacity for intoxicating, which usually takes away one's understanding.

Close and repeated feeling of love for God also brings intoxication, but this takes you towards understanding. This understanding is not gained through reason or intellect. As long as you remain separated from God and try to understand Him, He cannot be understood.

There is no separation between you and God. Lover and Beloved are one. You yourselves are the Way. You are God.
