Sharing bits from Meher Baba's Discourses, 2nd Part
- A continuation for any interested in these Discourses. Meher Baba insisted he was not here to teach, but to awaken, and spoke often concerning the New Humanity, which in discourses, closes by saying, "Divine Love is unassailable to the onslaughts of duality and is an expression of divinity itself. It is through divine love that the New Humanity will tune in to the divine plan. Divine Love will not only introduce imperishable sweetness and infinte bliss into personal life but it will also make possible an era of New Humanity. Through divine love the New Humanity will learn the art of cooperative and harmonious life. It will free itself from the tyranny of dead forms and release the creative life of spiritual wisdom; it will shed all illusions and get established in the Truth; it will enjoy peace and abiding happiness; it will be initiated in the life of Eternity."====================================================No opinions or ways of thinking within Soul"Different opinions or different ways of thinking do not introduce multiplicity within the one indivisible Soul, for the simple reason that there are no opinions or any ways of thinking within the Soul. All the activity of thinking and conclusions drawn therefrom are within the ego-mind, which is finite. the individualized soul as Soul does not think; it is only the ego-mind that thinks. Thinking and the knowledge that comes through thinking are both possible in the state of imperfect and incomplete knowledge that belongs to finite ego-minds. In the individual soul itself there is neither thinking nor the knowledge that comes through thinking.""The individualized soul as Soul is infinite thought and infinite intelligence; there is no division between the thinker and the thinking and the conclusions of thinking, nor the duality of the subject and object. Only the ego-mind with the background of the soul can become the thinker. The individual soul as Soul, which is infinite thought and infinite intelligence, does not think or have any activity of the intellect."Soul is infinite thought and intelligence"Intellect with its limited thinking comes into existence only with the finite ego-mind. In the completeness and the sufficiency of the infinite intelligence, which is the one Soul, there is no need for the intellect or its activities."God the only Reality"With the shedding of the last vestige of falsehoods created by Maya, the individualized soul not only knows its reality to be different from the gross, the subtle, or the mental body but it knows itself to be God, who is the only Reality. In this state the soul knows that the mind, the subtle body, and the physical body were all equally the creations of its own imagination, and that in reality they never existed. It knows that through Ignorance it conceived itself as the mind or the subtle body of the physical body. The individual soul knows also that, in a sense, it became the mind, the subtle body, and the gross body, and then identified itself with all these self-created illusions."
