infinite number of thoughts. In fact, all energy and all matter are but the outcome of the mind itself.

 

To understand the all-importance of God Who is the only Reality, now let us compare Him with the mind, and let the hair over the head be compared to the Creation. The illustration would at once suggest that compared with the hair on the head, the mind alone is infinitely valuable. Similarly, I say that God is infinitely valuable when compared with the whole of the creation, which has no value other than that of hair—the hair that lures, and the hair that creates illusory self-satisfaction.

 

The above points were dictated by Baba at Meherazad, Pimpalgaon, November 19, 1955. When the discourse was read out the next day to the Hindi group of Sahavasis, Baba, humorously remarked. “I remembered these points last evening when I happened to notice Kumar's head, which is tending to grow bald.”

 

GOD AS TRUTH

 

ULTIMATELY every one and every thing is God and that God, as Truth, can be realized through the Guru or the Master. Generally in this country, Vedantism is associated with this rendering of the Most High. Now I am not concerned with Vedantism or Sufism or any other "ism," but only with God as Truth, as He comes into our experience, after the disappearance of the limited and limiting ego-mind. God is an Unshakable and Eternal Truth. He reveals Himself and communicates Himself to those who love Him, seek Him and surrender themselves to Him, either in His Impersonal aspect, which is beyond name, form and time, or in His Personal aspect. He is more easily accessible to ordinary man through the God-men, who have always come and will always come, to impart Light and Truth to struggling humanity, which is groping mostly in darkness.

 

Because of his complete union with God, the God-man eternally enjoys the "I-am God" state, which equally corresponds to the Vedantic "Aham Brahmasmi" and the Sufi "Anal-Haq" or Christ's declaration, "I and my Father are one.” In the experience of the Sufis, "Anal-haq," or the "I am-God" state is a culmination of "Hama-Oost,” which means everything is God and nothing else exists.
