(Oct. 1962) Another point is that God alone is and there is nothing but God. God is indivisibly one, and He is indivisibly in each and every one. He cannot be divided. Yet we see everywhere these divisions! What is this separateness? There are Anita, Beryl, Ella, Harry, Charles, and others. Why this separateness? Why are you all separate? God is in everyone and in Baba too – God is everyone. Baba himself is God. Then what are these divisions? It is only the play of “Maya” and your ignorance! There are no divisions!
God is the Ocean – Infinite, Shoreless Ocean. Every drop in the Ocean is the Ocean Itself, for there are no drops at all – it is all an Indivisible Shoreless Ocean. But once you have a bubble, there is an appearance of separateness. Here is one bubble, there another, and there another. Each bubble encloses a drop. Mind is the bubble. You do not know that you are the Ocean, because the bubble gives you an impression of individuality, until it bursts. When the bubble of Anita, for instance, bursts and disappears, then Anita as the “drop” comes to know that she is really the Ocean. . .
God is indivisibly One; He is in each and every one. What then causes these apparent divisions? There are no divisions as such, but there is an appearance of separateness because of ignorance. Drops in the Ocean are not separate from the Ocean. The bubble around a drop gives the appearance of separateness. When the bubble of ignorance bursts, the individualized self realizes its Oneness with the Indivisible Self. The “drop” is not; the Indivisible Ocean is!
