Above is a picture of page four of a metaphysical document in Meher Baba’s own handwriting, written in 1925-26, with some added notes by yours truly. The manuscript was translated into Marathi and published in India as In God’s Hand. I doubt that it is available in the West. The manuscript is 39 pages long, and it has become my bible because it is the most elegant explanation of my actual experience that I have ever found, and it points the way forward for me.
In God’s Hand was written for conscious spiritual aspirants. In 1925-26, Meher Baba was gathering His circle, and that’s who was eligible for that – people who had searched and worked for, and loved God for a long time, and who had done that on purpose. It is full of keys to the View that leads directly to advancement on the Path, but you’ll never see them in a million years if you’re not actually consciously and deliberately practicing anything when you read it. In God’s Hand contains all the information in God Speaks and more. This is what that information looks like when you’re already on the Path. Although it does not contain all the information in Infinite Intelligence, in which it is included, it does contain everything in Infinite Intelligence that pertains to Sadhana in general. The other detailed information in Infinite Inteligence is critical, but without the Great View presented in In God’s Hand, there’s absolutely nothing whatsoever of benefit that you can do with those details.
“In God’s Hand” was NOT written for the members or leaders of a culture which routinely says of itself, both individually and collectively, things like “I don’t know anything, and I don’t want to know anything,” “I do not want God-Realization,” “I don’t have a Path,” “We’re just His broken-down furniture,” and “Those who say don’t know, and those who know don’t say.”
“In God’s Hand” was written specifically for me as an individual. I am probably the only person in what flaunts itself as the western Meher Baba Community, whether in or out of India, who can honestly say that. If there are others, I’d like to meet you.
