Baba then commented, “What is there to worry about? So don’t worry!
Yesterday, it rained and you got drenched. What did happen? Nothing!
Today, it is just the same here. Nothing happened yesterday; it is
just today!” (Nov. 1962).
Baba took a large glass in his hands which was covered with bright
golden paper and marked “GOD.” (Inside the big glass were three other
smaller ones.) He stated:
Would you like me to play some tricks? Take this glass as GOD the
Infinite. God cannot be seen with our limited eyes. He is Infinite,
absolutely invisible, independent, yet He pervades everything.
Now see that there are three illusory existences inside God – three
smaller glasses inside the large glass. Here is one of them, the gross
world; it is the smallest – the innermost glass covered with a coppery
shade. Although to us it is so big, so infinite. This gross world
depends on the next illusory existence, the subtle world – second
inner glass. The gross existence depends on the subtle and is within
the subtle. And this subtle existence depends on the mental world –
the third inner glass.
This mental existence depends on God – the large glass. Thus the gross
depends on the subtle, and the subtle depends on the mental, and the
mental depends on God, and God is independent. Note that there are
four glasses, and that each one is different and separate; but each
one is dependent on the other; except the large outer glass marked
GOD. Only GOD is independent – like the outermost glass that holds all
