Part I — Miracles, emanations and dreams
Miracles, emanations and dreams
Question: Once I thought I saw you in another form. All of a sudden I looked up and saw a man looking at me. He was a black man and he seemed a little bit drunk and was dressed very disreputably. I looked and looked into his eyes, but I saw only you. I smiled because I knew it was you but the person kept pretending he wasn't you. He wouldn't tell me who he was. So I finally gave up. Can you tell me whether it was you?
Question: When you take the form of another human being, if someone is in a good consciousness can he see you?
Question: Can you shield your power when you send your emanations so the person will not know it is you?
Question: Do miracles have any value?
Question: Guru, I often dream about you. Sometimes it is really you, but sometimes when I get near, I don't feel your vibration.
Question: When I was younger, I used to dream that I would be skipping across a field and then the skips would become like slow motion. I would jump a long distance, touch the ground and then jump again. Sometimes I would take off and fly around. That was when I was younger. Since I have been in the spiritual life I have had a similar kind of dream where I was in the midst of a lot of people on a sidewalk who were going very slowly. I wanted to go more quickly so I just got up and started to fly. But when I began to think of the people, I couldn't stay up, so I came down.
Question: I dream often, and occasionally have visions full of vivid colours. How can I interpret these dreams and colours?
Question: What is the significance of fish in dreams?
Question: Do animals ever approach you with requests?
Question: I was born with an ability to foresee things, but I feel that I am recently becoming weaker and weaker. What can I do?

Part II — The soul's world
Question: Do the souls of inanimate objects benefit from being around a spiritual Master?
Question: If the soul of the chair is ready to evolve, does it just leave the chair?
Question: If there is a very good soul in a house, and then that soul leaves and a less developed soul comes in, do the occupants of the house notice it?
Question: Is that why when you are in churches you can feel the love?
Question: What are group souls?
Question: What is it like when you see the soul?
Question: Do some souls have a kind of spontaneous affinity?
Question: Yesterday a few disciples and I were in a restaurant when another disciple walked in. Later we met this same disciple again. Is that just all coincidence? I thought something was going on there.
Part III — Eternity and immortality
Question: What is the difference between Immortality and Eternity?
Question: What is Immortality?

Question: Does one get the same joy in sahaja samadhi as in nirvikalpa samadhi?
