An old future dream (2)

7:58 PM, 5/27/2006…. Went for the walk and got a Sony catalog on the way .... went to the Ghandi Park nearby to read it…. Found the needed tool and filled it in the # 1 of this 'serial' (Speaking of ‘the needed tools’, let’s see what this advertise for Mac has for me! (BOLD type is from the ad.)

Free yourself from the confines of a desk with the wireless technology in MacBook Pro.
Yes, this is my main objective to ‘free myself’, so I can sit near the tomb, in the dining hall, at the Baba’s Cabin, at the Rahuri Cabin, etc…. to write and broadcast goodies for many! No worry about the frequesnt Arangaon power-cuts, or the working hours of the coffee-nets, while on the road.

Collaborate with colleagues around the world from across the room using a Bluetooth headset and iChat AV over wireless Internet.
What a wonderful experience to invite other Baba-lovers 'virtually' on the Hill and exchange information and loving feelings.

Make last-minute changes to a presentation by sharing files over Bluetooth.
Baba’s books in Persian can be edited faster this way.

MacBook Pro makes it easy to take your show on the road. Yes, Hit the Road Jack, BUT come back HOME to Meherabad, for sure!Internet, unplugged AirPort Extreme gives you blazing connectivity speeds up to 54 megabits per second (1) using the 802.11g standard. This turbocharged technology lets you connect to the Internet without wires, additional phone lines, or complicated networking hardware. Use AirPort Extreme to get online wirelessly (2) at hundreds of Starbucks coffee shops or Borders book stores from coast to coast via T-Mobile. What a blessing! this is just the write tool, plus that it can support Persian texting and it can be a productive means to translate many of Baba's and the mandalis VCDs/DVDs into Farsi. (by the way, i have asked the sister in charge to copy a complete series of their collection for my expanding Baba's library (14 of them!) So now the only question is HOW to get these tools?!

A friends from Iran suggested that I shall accept contributions from those who are willing to help make this ‘dream’ come true. May be this is the way. I will do ANY thing, WITHIN HIS LIMITS/according to His wish, in my 'new life with Baba', to obey Him and pay my due to His cause of Love and Service. Begging is the least I can go for!

I am sure those who can see this as a ‘service’, will join hands to make it happen. But how to go about ‘begging’? Mail to mail? (door to door?) Or a mass mail? Or…? ANY idea or tip will be appreciated. Getting late, and since I do not to eat outside, I better go ‘home’ (Meher Prasad) and eat my own rice-rajma mixture!

Will write/type more later….. tomorrow is Sunday and the LAW of the day is ABSOLUTE POTENTIALITY. Wish I can use this law to try my potentiality of expressing my ‘need’, as a ‘child’! Today the Law is the good old LAW OF DHARMA = why we have come to this life?/what is our 'role' in this Play of Leela? I feel I have come to make others more happy and more aware of their TRUE nature. This is in line with the response I get from my readership and friends and this is my best reward. Please if you read this blog, give me your own feelings and share your ideas and suggestions/criticism….. in His loving Grace, yours in this FIRE…………Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu


the following is also published in the newsofloving blog, yet for the sake of updating this blog (from January.06.2006) and putting the RELEVANT info in order, will post this ( + # 2 + ... ) here too. Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

"Jay Baba, to go back to the past is only justified to make a point for the PRESENT and the FUTURE..... it is true that there is no 'future' as such, YET, for me and us, there will be PRESENT moments, Baba's wish/will, in which we can communicate more effectively and pleasantly. Yes, being a student of MEDIA, now I feel i can use this 4-Ws (first it is WONDERFUL) to communicate with my new/old friends/foes! What a joy!

The ONLY obstacle/problem I see to make this ‘dream’ coming true is the lack of our needed TOOLS. What is this dream and what are the tools? Maybe if I clarify these important issues for myself and others___ who may help implementing this project, it might actually help to implement it! Yes? The dream is to have a 24*7 Radio service = pod-casting NON-STOP words (text), sound (music) and pictures (images) of ALL the Avataras, Great Souls and teachers of the humanity. Clear enough?!

When Vatican has its own pod-casting system, why not Meher Baba?

Now the question is only of the ‘tools’. To my present technical knowledge, it is only a matter of ‘right choice’ of the functionality, which so far had led me here: …. : Sony DCR-DVD805E, almost Rs 50G = 1100 usd.

The Intel Core Duo powering MacBook Pro is actually two execution cores built into a single chip. This, combined with myriad other engineering leaps, boosts performance up to five times higher than the PowerBook G4. With this awesome power, it's a breeze to render complex 3D models, enjoy smooth playback of 1080p HD video, or host a four-way video conference. "

Wow, imaging 4 of us sharing our feelings of gratitude for all we are/do/have for/from Baba, live, on the Magic Hill and elsewhere! What a dream! Macintosh is THE ‘choice’ for this work. More expensive, yet, WORTH the energy!

So now, suppose we ‘got the ‘point’, AND the tool, what about using it at The Hill? This would be a wonderful fun and challenge: when I live there as a ‘trainee’ (according to Bhauji’s Spiritual Training Program), I can use them at home, and OUTSIDE on the Hill, to record/playback stories of each of the ‘Baba-lovers’ living/visiting that sacred spot on this earth. Those who have been in Mehrabad and had visited the TOMB are well familiar with the ‘change of feeling’, BEFORE and AFTER entering that small room. These changes are often seen as ‘tears of joy and gratitude’, rolling down the cheeks. Here, (there!) catharsis happens in the moist delicate ways. One major function of this ‘service’ is to explore the meaning of many words, uttered by ALL masters, yet MIS-understood by many! Words like GOD, LOVE, Human Being, etc, can be explained,___ in detail, from MANY different aspects, ---to bring that ‘collective common’ meaning, needed to live it, by all concerned. Interpersonal communications can be evolved to a ‘non-violent communications’ (Dr. Marshal Rosenburg approach to communication). Many things can be done, by using this state-of-the-art technology (pod-casting.) Your ideas, comments are truly appreciated…..
