"Now, just as there is evolution of drop-bubbles, so also there is evolution and reaction of wave-bubbles. The moan, which gives us light at night, was once an earth, just like our earth; and there are a number of such cooled-down earths. Millions of years ago the condition of our earth was quite different from its present condition, and millions of years hence, it will be just like the moon. About the time our earth turns into a moon, it will slip aside from its present position, just as the receding one did; and its place will be filled by the B part of the seventh world. C will take the place of B and the world number 6 will take the place of C, and so on. Needless to say that with the evolution of wave-bubbles (worlds) the evolution of drop-bubbles goes on simultaneously. In the world number 6 at present there are no human beings, but when it will take the place of C, souls, after giving up the highest animal form, will incarnate in the human form with extraordinary intellect Similarly when B will take the place of our earth, its inhabitants will be filled with more love and imbued with higher emotions than they have at present.

 

 

 

IMPORTANT CORRECTIONS

 

The Editors of THE AWAKENER have received some very important corrections on “The Discourses of Meher Baba," and also on "Civilization or Chaos," the recent book on Baba by I. H. Conybeare. Since most of our readers have these books in their "Baba Library," we are publishing the corrections. We quote from a recent letter from Mani, Baba's sister, on these points:

 

"Did I tell you that Charles Purdom has been working on the 'Discourses,' and the revised version will be published soon. There are those who believe that literally every word in the original Discourses is Baba's and are reluctant to accept any revised version; but actually, though Baba dictated for hours on the board, Professor Deshmukh embellished and worked up the points. Though Deshmukh has undoubtedly done brilliant work in many places, we feel there are many places where simplification of sentence structure or correction of grammar would enhance the beauty and simplicity which are the essence of Baba's teachings. Deshmukh preferred not to give his name at all (though he was urged by some of the Mandali to do so) as he felt it was all done by Baba.
