My understanding from my limited prayers and in Channeling, Baba has revealed that The Almighty wants all the children to come back Home. The focus of each and every living being is to merge back into Goddess, God, Guru. The role of every Guru or Master is to make each disciple into a Master and to eventually help the disciple merge with The One. But there are many Perfect Masters, who due to the love of Their children will not merge with The Absolute One, for the simple reason, that once you merge with The Almighty, you become The Almighty yourself. The drop becomes the ocean and the ocean mergers into the drop too and there is only Oneness. But The Almighty has set rules and S(H)E too becomes bound by the rules. A class teacher has more power to help his or her student than the school’s principal as the class teacher is more personally involved with the child. If a child has failed but the teacher sees potential and dedication, the class teacher can still manipulate the report card and make sure the child has passed the examination.
The school principal does not have this privilege as then every child who were to fail would demand that he or she pass the examination and be promoted. It would start a wrong precedent. But a class teacher can make sure silently the child passes the exam and moves forward.
Baba time and again has revealed that many spiritual Perfect Masters, even though They can merge with The Almighty, due to the love of Their children choose to remain Masters and not merge with The Almighty. Baba has promised His children that whoever calls out to Him, He will come running to help the child and if karma necessitates that the individual go through the ordeal or experience, He shall stand with the individual and be with the child and go through the ordeal or experience, giving the child, strength, wisdom, grace to go through his or her lot, with calmness and pure surrender.
In Rabda, Baba reveals to Rabda that ‘I sit here and countless sparks go out of me and countless sparks merge back into me. The world has its own vibrations and The Master’s Energy would get depleted if He or She were to venture forth in that vibration. So our Energy goes forth, but just a spark, or as one says, just an anksh, which means a part of me. That part of Me is the whole of Me but still a part of Me. A drop is part of the ocean and the ocean is in the drop too. So the first receiver is this body of Mine you see now and through the receiver countless people receive My Energy. The second receiver is my Samadhi or Dargha, which also sends forth waves upon waves of My Energy to all those who come to be cleansed and energised and blessed. The resting place of a Master works as a cleanser, an energizer, a restorer, blessing to all those who come from far to seek solace, respite, strength and blessings.
So you have Baba Sai, in His original form, say on the eleventh dimension, seated amongst The Masters, through His essence, a physical Self of His is seated on Mother Earth, from here, countless sparks or energy manifestations are sent to all those who truly need His personal presence, the same works through His Tomb, and then through all those who represent The One, through Him. When He is called, depending on the relationship, faith and love of the individual, the Energy flows to the individual, which means He or The Perfect Master can be all over Creation with His or Her children, whenever one truly calls. The greater the longing for Goddess, God, Guru, the stronger is the manifestation of The One. If you want Baba to be with us all the time, we need to be with Baba all the time. The more you want Baba, the stronger His manifestation grows. If you want Him only for a particular reason, He will be with us for that particular reason. But remember, want Him for the right reasons and He will be with us forever, very often even materialising in His original form or taking the physical form of a man, woman, child, animal, insect.
As Baba in Channeling has said this countless times, ‘I am always aware of each and every thought, word, emotion, intention of each child of Mine. The responsibility of a Guru, a Perfect Master, never ends, till the Perfect Master does not make His or Her child merge with The Source. Can you imagine the intensity and selflessness of the Perfect Master’s love, so often and even perpetually for that S(H)E puts on hold the final merger of the Perfect Master with Their Most Beloved.’
I pray we become worthy of such a sacrifice.
Be blessed always.
