in life, this child, grown up as a man, gets established in the life of his respective plane-consciousness, as a man of the gross world gets established in his worldly life. Thus, a person of the gross world dies to reincarnate as of the gross world; so also a person of a particular plane of consciousness reincarnates as of that respective plane of consciousness and, then gradually gets established in the plane of consciousness of his previous life. He may or may not make further progress in the planes of higher consciousness. Progress will depend on the help of a spiritual guide of a higher plane, on the grace of a Perfect Master, or on his own efforts in the life of that particular plane of consciousness.

 

Baba commented: "As I said the other day, the gross, subtle, mental spheres and God are all in you, in your human form. Do not try to find them in some other world. They are in you. It is the vision of consciousness that gives you the experience of other worlds. In the gross world the whole cosmos exists; also in the subtle and in the mental worlds there are innumerable experiences. But the experiences you have in the gross world are different from those in the subtle world. You yourself do not change; all is in you. You do not go to 'geographically' higher levels. As the angle of vision of consciousness changes, your experience changes. In the end you experience yourself as God, which is the ultimate experience, the real experience. All other experiences of the gross subtle, mental worlds are illusion. So are all the states of heaven, hell, limbo, planes. Don't seek them anywhere but within you. Eventually to become your own self you have to love me. There is no other solution.

 

SURRENDERANCE

He who genuinely surrenders to a Perfect Master surrenders completely without asking for permission to do so. He does not even expect acceptance of his surrenderance from the Master. Complete surrenderance in itself embodies the acceptance of one who has surrendered completely as he ought to have done.

 

Baba said: “To ask me 'How can I love you?' is to insult love. How can I answer? What is your answer, Harry?" Dr. Kenmore replies: "Thanks for placing me in this predicament! One cannot be told how to love Baba, one must pretty much find it out for oneself. Such a question denies love on the part of the lover."
