What is the basis of this program?
Countless individuals through the ages have pursued ways to expand consciousness—some religious, some chemical or plant-based, and some direct spiritual approaches. The urge to expand consciousness seems to emanate from a sense that there is a higher reality and experience that could be available if one only knew how to go about pursuing it. Those who have sought out this experience consistently report that its essential nature is love.
Meher Baba is one who has provided an authoritative answer to this age-old question—both through his writings and teachings, but even more-so through providing a direct inner connection with the source of this experience.
Through in-depth and unequivocal declarations, Meher Baba says that his is the latest incarnation of the Avatar—the direct incarnation of God in human form—and that prior Avataric advents include Zoroaster, Krishna, Rama, Buddha, Jesus, and Mohammed. He states that his role is to bring about a universal awakening and the opportunity for any sincere individual to find him within their own being. Meher Baba said that the Avatar’s advent would usher in a new era that he called "the New Humanity", in which consciousness would be uplifted spiritually throughout civilization.
The Journey in Consciousness program will introduce the teachings and life-work of Avatar Meher Baba as yet another way to help individuals expand their consciousness and vitalize their spiritual life.
