REMEMBRANCE

 Meher Baba explained

Remembrance means establishing mental contact with Master. Once the aspirant has the bliss of the darshan of a Master, that sight gets carved on his mind, and even when he is unable to establish frequent personal contact, his mind turns to the Master again and again in an effort to understand His significance. This process of establishing mental contact with the Master is essentially different from merely imaginative revival of past incidents. In an ordinary play of imagination, the recall of previous incidents is not necessarily animated by a directive power of purpose, imagination ceases to be mere revolving of ideas and reaches out to the Master through inner planes and establishes contact with Him. Such mental contact with the Master is often as fruitful and effective as His physical darshan. The inward repetition of such mental contact is like constructing a channel between Master and the aspirant, who becomes thereby the recipient of the grace, love and light which are constantly flowing from the Master in spite of the apparent distance between them. Thus, the help of the Master goes out not only to those who happen to be in his physical presence but also to others who establish mental contact with Him.

You should think of Me in everything you do. Eat, dance, but forget yourself in the action and think of Me instead. The less you think of yourself and the more you think of Baba, the sooner the ego goes and Baba remains. When you – ego – go entirely, I am one with you. So bit by bit, you have to go. Today your nose, tomorrow your ears, then your eyes, your hands, everything.

Think of Me when you eat, sleep, see and hear. Enjoy everything, but think it is all Baba. Baba enjoys it. Baba is eating it. Sleep soundly in Baba, and when you wake up remember it is Baba getting up. Keep this one thought constantly with you. If you do wrong, then think it is Baba doing wrong. If you get a pain, think it is Baba getting a pain. Then it will be all the time Baba.

You must repeat audibly the name of Avatar Meher Baba in form of “BABA” by uttering “BA” with each breath in and again ”BA” with each breath out-without a break throughout the waking state during the day and night.

While remembering Rama or Krishna or any of other Prophets, you can bring his image before mind’s eye but what about God? Mere remembrance of the name has no meaning. It should be done with one-pointed devotion, with a mental picture before you. If you have His image before you in any form, it becomes easy. How can you concentrate thinking only of God? You must have some suitable image of an Avatar or Sadguru before you. When you pray, have My picture before you
