GOD INTOXICATED  SOULS (MASTS)

All masts are intoxicated with God. They are intoxicated by divine love. The average person is not familiar with masts or their spiritual condition of God-intoxication.

The Masts are intoxicated with God; they are intoxicated by divine love. When a normal person is intoxicated by alcohol or drugs he enjoys this sensation so long as the intoxicant is in sufficient concentration in his physical tissues: a drunkard feels happy, cares not for anyone or anything, and has one dominant sensation of drunkenness, in which the past, present or future has practically no meaning. But as soon as the ordinary intoxication passes away, the drunkard suffers the reverse –the hangover. Stimulated physical intoxication is inescapably temporary, because it is limited by the very stimulant itself, the conditions of the environment, and the cost of the stimulant and the resilience of one's condition.

A person who is God-intoxicated experiences the same sensation that a drunkard enjoys, and cares for no one and nothing, in proportion to the extent of his inner intoxication; the vast difference is the mast's intoxication is continual, that it may increase but can never decrease, and that it has no harmful physical or mental reaction. It is an inner state of permanent and unalloyed intoxication, independent of anything external.

The principal sensation of a mast is this permanent enjoyment of divine intoxication. The creation is full of bliss and the mast enjoys this bliss and thereby becomes intoxicated to an almost unlimited extent, virtually consuming him and absorbing him and thereby making the world around him vanish.  Absorbed in God, such a person is continually absorbed in thinking about God, and with that comes like a bolt of pure love consuming him further in a state of divine intoxication. Masts are not insane or mad in the ordinary sense. Masts are desperately in love with God, or consumed by their love for God.

Masts do not suffer from what may be called a disease. They are in a state of mental disorder because their minds are overcome by such intense spiritual energies that are far too much for them - forcing them to lose contact with the world, shed normal human habits and customs and civilised society. They are overcome by an agonising love for God, and are drowned in their ecstasy. Only a state of spiritual splendour but physical squalor.

Whatever they do, whether it be called good or bad from worldly standards, has no selfish motive or personal deliberation. So, if these persons laugh or cry, seem happy or morose, caress others or beat them-they are not conscious of what they do or how they behave. Nevertheless their doing acts in anger helps those on whom the unconscious anger is spent, because their selfless anger destroys the anger sanskaras of the recipient.

They are overcome by an agonising love for God, and are drowned in their ecstasy. Only the divine love embodied in a Perfect Master can reach them. (Lord Meher Vol-6, p-2035)

No ordinary man can tell whether one man is a mast and another man is mad without the divine authority of a Perfect Master. However, the unmistakeable quality that masts possess is their ability to make one happy in their company. Whereas in the company of a mad person one feels depression and sadness. (Lord Meher Vol-7, p-2435)
