lll.   The state in between I & II may be compared with a child awake and out of the cradle: it is        an example of "Conscious Action."

 

IV.  The state of Majzoob of 7th plane may be compared with a somnambulist: the        somnambulist walks about or performs other actions in sleep and is not aware of what he        does in this state. Similarly the Majzoob of 7th plane does actions and is not conscious of        them. His is "Unconscious Action": he eats, drinks, speaks, etc. But all this is his       "Unconscious Action."  

 

V. The state of a Perfect Master may be compared with a child wide awake but inside the       cradle that is continuously rocked by mankind. It is "Conscious Active Inaction." Inaction       is being inside the cradle: and active inaction is the rocking of the cradle by others.

      God is Conscious Inaction indeed. And the tranquility of this "Conscious Inaction" is so       very profound that it gives God the attributes of Infinite Power, Infinite Knowledge and       Infinite Bliss.

 

Baba said, "This should be read two or three times to understand it; it is difficult. Hafiz has said, The universe and its affairs are nothing into nothing!' Our bondage is due to actions. Good action is a binding and bad action is a binding. One has to go beyond actions, then there is no binding. One cannot go beyond actions unless one is in sound sleep, because of impressions which need expression. Expression in turn creates actions, and actions create bindings. Don, when you sleep soundly, you are in the original state of God. There anre no bindings, no actions. But past actions demand that you get up, so you start putting your impressions into action. The goal is to go to that original state of yours of inaction, but consciously. In sleep you are unconscious and there is conscious inaction.[sic-should be unconscious inaction] How can you be free of actions? Again we fall back on love. Love is the remedy. Not only in this incarnation but every time I come I stress that love is the remedy. We have seen the masts: they love me so intensely there is no occasion for sleeping, talking or eating. Don't force yourself to love in that way. It comes naturally. What I want is this. Listen carefully; it is very important for my lovers."
