Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.5.

Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-5

( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)

The physical world is not the only world that exists in the cosmos.

It is only one level of frequency of power, energy and force, on account of which we can see only one world at a time, and not two worlds.

Neither can we see anything above us nor can we see anything below us.

We see only horizontally, and that is the physical world of the five elements – earth, water, fire, air and ether. So we know why we see only one world, though scriptures speak of many worlds.

We also know why we see only human beings and not the Devas, gods and celestials.

We cannot see them, because they are in a higher level of frequency of consciousness, even as we cannot hear radio waves through our physical ears.

We want a transistor for that, because the physical eardrum is gross compared to the subtle, ethereal waves sent by the broadcasting stations in the different parts of the world.

So all this is to explain scientifically and understand logically the reason why we are bound to the physical level of perception and experience and why we are completely oblivious of the existence of supernormal powers and divine manifestations of God.
