Hearing Hazrat Babajan

October 13, 2010

Last night, this morning really, before I woke up I had a dream.

I don’t remember seeing Baba, or Babajan, but it was as if I could – hear – (or read) what Babajan communicated to Meher Baba (as Merwan) early on.  As if it was the period before she unveiled him to his Ancient One state.  It was something like this:  “Try to be quiet with God.”  And there was a lot about how to clean and care for his sadra (long shirt), and who would be wearing a sadra also (in the future).

All I know is that it felt like the first things Hazrat Babajan ever said to young Merwan, and the words were spoken with so much love, tenderness, peace, and suggestion, not at all like a Master speaking, but like a proud mother giving advice to her favorite son.

Thank you Beloved Baba,

That’s all.


Xia: Babajan’s birth name was Gulrukh meaning “face like a rose”.  I feel this when I look at her, when I think of her kissing young Merwan’s forehead on his way home from college in 1914, and when I contemplate Laurent’s description of hearing her speak.  Like a rose, her presence unfolds a delicate grace.

Laurent: I have never had a dream quite like this one, where it was more about hearing the words of a Master, rather than seeing, but the words were infused with Love, and great power, and I felt like I was in between the two, the great Master Hazrat Babajan, whom Merwan called “The Emperor” and Merwan himself, who became known to the world as the Avatar Meher Baba.

It is short and already written, I just have to type it up, here:

November 27th morning, 2001
Flagstaff, Arizona USA

Last night… I dreamt I was looking from the main land, above ground level, down the peninsula which ends in Greece, and the Mediterranean Sea. (I drew a map as well)…

There was a green colored area along the coast line (below me on my right) which I knew was spiritually important and it was quite large … and there were other “dots” or areas on the land I was being shown from above (upon waking I don’t remember their exact placement). The dream was about the spiritual importance of these places …

There was someone in the dream, unseen, instructing me that “One Part of the New Humanity” would emerge from Greece (or Crete), and that they would draw upon various areas in this (vision, map, view) of the peninsula ending in Greece. That is, they would learn about pottery from this area (and a big dot would be shown to me), or learn about some thing else from that area and again the vision was rather interactive with the lesson … and this went on for a while, with each area lighting up as it was being explained to me about what would be drawn upon culturally and spiritually …  It was some kind of New Humanity lesson, or something.  [For more about The New Humanity, as explained by Meher Baba see Discourses.]

I remember hearing the word: “Corfu” and I remember part of the map marked, “Cephalonia” but upon waking I couldn’t draw where they are located on the map. I remember waking up and feeling very peaceful. I thought about writing it down then, but went back to sleep until 7am, when I got up and wrote it all down.

P.S. The night before (Nov. 26th evening), during my time with Baba alone (I have a spare room for this), His photograph was pulsing and throbbing with much energy. I felt something was being given to me – starting with that – and so after this time with Baba I went right to sleep and had this dream (for what it is worth).

Xia: Five days ago Laurent sent me this dream for inclusion in Come (True).  It is the 5th entry.  Every night the unexpected has hampered my best effort to get this on-line… And then, today, he forwarded me a document he’d composed, which included some of Meher Baba’s expressed wisdom on the New Humanity (from Volume I of Meher Baba’s Discourses, linked to above).  When I read these words, “The coming civilisation of the New Humanity shall be ensouled not be dry intellectual doctrines, but by living spiritual experience,” I realized  that not only had I spent five days immersed in spiritual experiences directly related to the New Humanity (because of reading/contemplating Laurent’s dream and in the moments I otherwise would have input it)… but that Meher Baba’s words are a perfect commentary on Laurent’s dream.  They were, I now know, what I was waiting for.

Laurent: So this is a classic example for me of a number of things: When I said above, “someone in the dream, unseen, instructing me” this is a type of dream I have where it is NOT Meher Baba, but like some angel or agent giving me ultra clear instructions. Also, in a case like this I am suspended in mid-air, looking over or down on things. I wrote this dream out for Don E. Stevens in 2002 shortly before we moved to England, in April of that same year, (so I could work with him on his authorized biography, which work continues. He is now 91). I kept the email formatting to give the context of my sharing with Don.]
