But there are no distinctions in God. God is everything and everyone.
"Here is Fred Marks. He is actually God; he is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent. But God in Marks says, "I am helpless, I am here, I do not know everything." The God in Marks says, "I am a man." The God in Mrs. de Blasio says, "I am a woman." But God is neither man nor woman. This distinction is due to imagination. For example, Don has a mind. There are innumerable thoughts or divisions in that mind; but there is only one mind. With this mind, Don imagines a cobra with ten heads; he creates that cobra, he preserves it, and then he destroys it; but in reality there was no cobra.
“In the same way, God imagines in the beginning and creates many divisions. All one sees and does is a play of the imagination. On the higher planes one experiences that there are no divisions. Kaikobad sees divisions but sees Baba in all the divisions. He has to go beyond this and see no division, but see himself everywhere. Of millions of men of God, only one will realize God. It is so difficult, so impossible. Even Peter did not realize me when I was in the body as Christ.
"But remember all these are mere words. What has to happen is for the individual to become completely unconscious, as in sound sleep. When you are completely unconscious, that is the state of God; but you must also be conscious of everything. So you must be unconscious; yet 100% conscious. In sound sleep you go back to the original state but are not conscious of it; when you are in that state all the time but conscious at the same time, then you have found me."
In the afternoon Baba and the whole party of sahavasis attended a showing of the film taken by Charmian Corrinet of Baba's trip to the U.S. in 1956. Baba was very pleased with it. We also saw a short film of the 1958 Indian sahavas.
