Baba said, "How God is beyond imagination I will explain in a few words. God has no beginning. Can you imagine when God was not? Suppose your imagination takes you as far back as millions and trillions of years, and the answer is still: God was. But what was before God? And again the answer is: God was. So, can anybody imagine what was before God? Or how it all began? Even imagination cannot carry us to any idea of how God began—how everything began. To think of having no beginning cannot be imagined. Don, how do you think of it?"—"As a circle," Don Stevens replies. Baba continued: "There is no beginning. Come on, let us imagine the beginning of the beginning. We reach the same conclusion: God was. And before God was? The same answer: God was. Now, in illusion you will find yourself getting a beginning. And where there is a beginning, there will be an end. So you, who are experiencing illusion, how can you imagine that which has no beginning and no end? Yet you as yourself, as a drop of your own infinite ocean, have no beginning and no end. You have this form. You take birth. You have a beginning as a drop; you grow, you die, you end. You begin and end in illusion. You, as bodies, have a beginning and an end. You are the Infinite One, but as a body you have beginning and end; as the Infinite Ocean—of which you are the drop as body—there is no beginning and no end.

 

"Ned, you have a mind. Mind is in illusion. Mind tries to think of that which has no beginning and no end, but mind can't reach it, because mind itself is illusion.

 

“To experience your real self is the goal. You are and you will ever be. There is no one else but you. Instantly, in a flash, you will know everything, including why you have no beginning and no end. But this knowing will have nothing to do with mind, reason, logic. It is beyond mind. You know the answer to everything, you know that nothing has happened and nothing will ever happen. You then experience bliss, you become all-powerful, all-knowing."

 

A discourse was read on:

OMNIPRESENCE

There cannot be anything hidden from One who is Omnipresent. And as there cannot be hidden anything from such a One, He must be omniscient. He is all-knowing, knowing everything.
