New Introduction

Who are you? You are God

Every lifetime is a progressive step in the long journey of consciousness. Planted as a seed at the very origin of creation, consciousness evolves through a process that spans the entirety of cosmic existence. 

As part of that process, the personal ego develops to organize the experiences of the individualized human “self”. The ego’s core awareness is of being separate from all other beings, animate and inanimate -- and of being separate from whatever it might call God, the Oversoul, the Ground of Being or simply “That”.

Spiritual unfolding is the process by which consciousness is freed from the prison of the personal ego — the illusion of separateness — and experiences the joy, knowledge, and beauty of Oneness.

FIND QUOTE from Meher Baba re: All pathways lead to God 

Sufism Reoriented, under the aegis of Meher Baba and the guidance of living, illumined Teachers, is a path of the heart-in-action, of living the force of unifying Love through selfless service. It is a process of transformation, not a “teaching”, not an “organization”.

Golden Moments of Childhood


For some, though certainly not for all, there may be golden moments in early childhood when Love — a sense of divinity or Oneness — breaks through awareness and awakens an intuitive sense that there is more to life than the routines of family life and dailyness.

For some, and again not for all, disillusionment begins to surface as one gains experience of the social and psychological milieu into which one has been born. Disillusionment may be due to the rigidity of religion, the self-aggrandizing underpinnings of core cultural norms, puzzling behaviors subsumed under the umbrella of “love”, or all of these and more. Or, disillusionment with conventional values might arise after a “peak experience” like those of childhood, but now disruptive of the routines of habitual life; or due to the recognition that everything and everyone must die. For some, who reach the pinnacle of worldly “success”, they start to wonder, “Is this all there is?”

Search for Truth, Love, Beauty

Whatever the trigger, a search begins — unconscious at first, but becoming increasingly vibrant and central in one’s life. 

“Consciously or unconsciously, every living creature seeks one thing. In the lower forms of life and in less advanced human beings, the quest is unconscious: in advanced human beings, it is conscious. The object of the quest is called by many names — happiness, peace, freedom, truth, love, perfection, Self-realization, God-realization, union with God. Essentially, it is a search for all of these, but in a special way. Everyone has moments of happiness, glimpses of truth, fleeting experiences of union with God; what they want is to make them permanent. They want to establish an abiding reality in the midst of constant change.” [Avatar Discourse]

Finding one’s spiritual “home” — wherever it may be — brings a sense of joyful gratitude. The “honeymoon” period begins where life is savored as never before.

Beautifying Daily Life

The delight of discovering the “meaning of life” and finding one’s direction forward toward Self-Realization is soon accompanied by the recognition that these come with a joyful responsibility: to dedicate one’s life to the service of others, to beautifying the flow of life, to living kindness in every action.

“To penetrate into the essence of all being and significance, and to release the fragrance of that inner attainment for the guidance and benefit of others, by expressing in the world of forms truth, love, purity and beauty — this is the sole game which has any intrinsic and absolute worth. All other happenings, incidents and attainments in themselves can have no lasting importance.”
