I am never born ; I never die
(by Meher Baba)

I am never born, I never die. Yet every moment I take birth and undergo death. The countless illussory births and deaths are necessary landmarks in the progression of man's consciousness to Truth- a prelude to the Real Death and the Real Birth. The Real Death is when one dies to self- and the Real Birth is when, dying to self, one born in God, to live forever His Eternal Life consciously.

Although I am present everywhere eternally in My formless Infinite State, from time to time I take form, and the taking of the form and leaving it is termed My physical Birth and Death.

In this sense, I am born and I die when My Universal work is finished.
