The Universal Message of Meher Baba
I have come not to teach but to awaken. Understand therefore that I lay down no precepts.
Throughout eternity I have laid down principles and precepts, but mankind has ignored them. Man's inability to live God's words makes the Avatar's teaching a mockery. Instead of practicing the compassion he taught, man has waged crusades in his name. Instead of living the humility, purity and truth of his words, man has given way to hatred, greed and violence.
Because man has been deaf to the principles and precepts laid down by God in the past, in this present Avataric Form I observe Silence. You have asked for and been given enough words — it is now time to live them.
To get nearer and nearer to God you have to get further and further away from "I," "Me," and "Mine". You have not to renounce anything but your own self. It is as simple as that, though found to be almost impossible. It is possible for you to renounce your limited self by my Grace. I have come to release that Grace.
I repeat, I lay down no precepts. When I release the tide of Truth which I have come to give, men's daily lives will be the living precept. The words I have not spoken will come to life in them.
I veil myself from man by his own curtain of ignorance, and manifest my Glory to a few. My present Avataric Form is the last Incarnation of this cycle of time, hence my Manifestation will be the greatest. When I break my Silence, the impact of my Love will be universal and all life in creation will know, feel and receive of it. It will help every individual to break himself free from his bondage in his own way. I am the Divine Beloved who loves you more than you can ever love yourself. The breaking of my Silence will help you to help yourself in knowing your real Self.
All this world confusion and chaos was inevitable and no one is to blame. What had to happen has happened; and what has to happen will happen. There was and is no way out except through my coming in your midst. I had to come, and I have come. I am the Ancient One.
Well yes. Most religions would say that omnipotence is one of the defining characteristics of godhood. It should be well within the abilities of your typical god to incarnate as a man, or a hamster. Or a chicken sandwich.
I have a chicken sandwich in front of me. It may be just a chicken sandwich, or it could be a god. I’m not sure.
The chicken sandwich itself, like Meher Baba, remains silent.
Does he choose to be a superhuman, with miraculous powers so spectacular the whole world can’t help but notice? No.
Does he choose to be a regular human, such that the whole world considers him to be just another average joe? No.
He chooses to be a human, but one who declares he is god, and has supposedly heavenly knowledge and ideas. Not technical ideas mind, like how to fight cancer or build spaceships (which would also help validate he is who he says he is), but vague metaphysical ramblings that will only succeed to convince people predisposed towards such things, if they listen to their “faith” instead of their skepticism.
