JUNE 14, 1963 – TYPES OF DREAMS.
Baba continued his explanations about the higher planes and the types of dreams two days later, June 14th (1963):
When a Qutub works on the subtle and mental planes, he has not to exert his physical body at all. But on the gross plane, exertion is necessary for his working in the physical world, in order to help the animate and inanimate objects in gross consciousness.
The Majzoob of the seventh plane is called by Vedantists Bal-unmant pishash [a living ghost], and termed by Sufis as the Prince. The Sadguru or Qutub is called the King, and the Avatar or Rasool is the King of Kings.
In eternity there is no past and future. There is only the eternal present. But in the awake dream state, the past and future hinges round the present. The dream while sleeping is a dream into dream. This dream of sleep is of three kinds: pure dreams, hallucinations and nightmares. Hallucinations and nightmares have no connection with past and future. But a pure dream is connected with the past and future.
In the awake dream state, there are some rare ones who can foretell the future, but this has no connection with spirituality. In the ordinary awake dream state, we also connect the past with the future. Suppose a man ate chapati and vegetables yesterday evening, and he knows that today he will have the same food in the evening. In this manner he connects the past and future with the present. In ordinary life, we make many plans for the future.
