stunned by the wonder of it all and I did not even see Baba until the disciple took me over to Him.
That wonderful love of Baba kept pouring over me and over me and when I looked into His eyes I knew that, as Kabir says so aptly, "From the beginning to the ending of time, there is love between Thee and me and how shall such love be extinguished?"

But they have nothing to do with the Truth or with true spirituality. The Truth is far beyond the exercise of such powers.
The yogi can make things appear entirely different to you from what they really are. It is like putting colored glasses on your eyes, so that a thing, which in fact is white, appears to you to have the color of the glasses you are wearing. There
