The soul comes first1This is a cute story. This morning I came out of my house and closed the door. As soon as I came out, I saw a disciple’s soul there, so I blessed her soul with all my love and affection, and I did the needful.
Then I entered into Savyasachi’s car to go to our two-mile race. Here is the proof of the soul’s presence! When we came to 150th Street, Savyasachi pointed out that girl to me.
I said, “Where?”
He said, “She is there, in her car.”
She saw me and Savyasachi saw her, but I was, as usual, in my trance or whatever you want to call it. I was very pleased.
I always say that the soul comes faster than the body. The soul of an individual always comes to me earlier than the physical body. The physical body is so slow, whereas the soul is faster than the fastest. But in this case, it did not take more than a minute. Perhaps it was less than a minute. The soul came to me first, then the body.
This has happened quite a few times with many of the disciples. The souls come to me first, and in a matter of a few seconds or a minute the physical bodies appear. That is good!
