"Everything emanates from Me but is not real. If you were dreaming and I appeared in your dream and told you you were dreaming, it is not real, you would say, 'Baba, I am enjoying these things, I know they are real.' It is hard to understand. In your awake dream, I tell you now, nothing is real, so don't worry. How to stop? Think of Me. Love Me. Christ said with divine authority, 'Your sins are forgiven'; and I say with divine authority, 'Love Me, and your worries will vanish.'

 

"Reality is impossible to describe—it is difficult to attain. One in a million becomes a lover of God and of a million lovers one gets Realization. It sounds impossible. Baba says, you have an opportunity because I am here with you and I say, 'Love Me'."

 

 

TWO TYPES OF EGO :

 

Baba said: "There are two types of ego. One, the false ego, has innumerable wants and desires. It says, 'I am a man, I want this; I am a woman, I want that; I am sick, I have a pain; I want to be happy, I am not happy; my wife does not love me; I am very rich; I am very poor.' It is always 'I.' But when it is annihilated, then a transformation takes place, and the false I is replaced by the real I, and then the experience, 'I am free from desires and wanting,' is gained. 'I am infinite, I am one with God, I am Christ'—that is the Real Ego.

 

"One asserts 'I am God' because he has read and understood intellectually that there is nothing but God. But this assertion, 'I am God,' falls down because he and his mind are not united, are not One. This assertion is due to having thought. Thinking is there, that means duality is there. There is no direct experience here, but he experiences an idea of unity through his understanding of the oneness of God, therefore this is not real experience and is not the real ego. There cannot be any compromise, there is no room for compromise. There is only one God; one has to become One with God. You cannot be the man of the world and at the same time become One with God.

 

"If you have realized God within you, and we know that God is all powerful, then you must also be all-powerful. Why then do you feel helpless? What is the cause of this helplessness? I remain the same Eternal One and am in all; therefore you all are God; and yet you feel so helpless. Why is this? Because there is a sort of veil that veils you from God.
