Baba: "There is nothing like space-consciousness. Here is an ant on the floor. You are all also sitting on the same floor. The ant crawls up your body. But its consciousness is different from yours. What is the difference?"
Anita replies, "The ant is only conscious of his crawling; I am a little conscious of this room but You are conscious of the whole universe."
Baba says, "There is a world of difference between My Infinite Consciousness and your ant-like consciousness. You are all ants before Me in My Consciousness, you are all crawling on My body! Though I am sitting here in the same room with you, we are really nowhere in space, just within God—neither up nor down; neither here nor there! You are ants, big ants, and you sting Me all the time! Don―tell us that story you wished to narrate."
Don Stevens relates how he came to show his movies of Baba to the executives of Aramco, who spoke of that "silent man"
Baba. "I am very pleased to hear this. I am not silent. How can I be silent? I don't speak with My tongue. I speak continuously with My heart. But when I open My lips to speak the Word, then all sorts of things will happen. Everything will be topsy-turvy. But the hearts of the world will get the Word. The time for it is very near."
The remainder of the "21 Points" given by Baba were read out by Eruch.* Then Baba told us, "Today, disperse at 11:30 and come back to the Meeting Hall at 2:45. There won't be any discourses or explanations then. Just sit there quietly and be witnesses. There is nothing beyond sitting near Me, loving Me, remembering Me. This session of discourses is good for Charles because he has to write a book that will do My work. It is also good for Harry's 'baby'—the tape recorder."
Baba mentioned how hot it had been in this same hall last May. Even Colonel Goldney had to dash out of the room. Baba then mentioned that many Easterners were trying to get in for the three days of the East-West Gathering, demanding "Sahavas" badges. "Charles, are you happy?", Baba asks "Who is not happy? Raise your hands—Timur's hand is up!"
Mr. Timur: "I can't say I am unhappy, either!"
Baba: "What is the reason?"
Mr. Timur: "I don't know—that's the problem!
Baba: "I am ready to make up for it . . . I will give you five minutes
