Messages On The Spiritual Life From Avatar Meher Baba
In July of 2010. I started working on the small messages that Baba had read out in public meetings as he toured America and Australia in 1956 that are published by Sufism Reoriented in the book Life At Its Best*. I have always loved these messages, and was inspired to make them into videos so that they are available in a different format that may have a wider distribution and also may prompt the viewer to open the book again or buy the book for the first time, for there are many more messages in the book then made into a video. Creations Of The Limited Mind was always my favorite, and I think in the video form, it is the best one rendered.
I wanted to give them all a dynamic modern feel using the old ‘technobaba ‘ video art style, as opposed to the more straight documentaries of Baba’s life I made, although now I realized I did not use even a single piece of Techno music in any of them.
The short pieces below stand on their own, although there is also a complete film which includes them all and also tells the story of how they came to be released as told to me by Meherwan Jessawala, a life long close disciple of Meher Baba, and who figured prominently in their public release ( see the entire film for his story). -Robert Fredericks
