A little known idea in the spiritual world is that Creation was first started by the first Avatar, Ganesha (the one in pictures and shown as statues with an elephant’s head). The Avatar then chose five souls that had come down with him, and gave each a quality, a spirit of God.
So the first five Perfect Masters were created. One Perfect Master had the quality of Bliss, another Perfect Master had the quality of Wisdom, then there was Power, Knowledge and Truth.
Each Perfect Master was 20% of God, so the five together were 100%. The Perfect Masters’ consciousness was on the lowest three Divine Journeys; the first Divine Journey, the second Divine Journey and the third Divine Journey. There were many millions of Divine Journeys which held qualities of God, each with light and love more intense than the ones below, all the way Up to the Father. The lower three Divine Journeys though were just above what was called the Om point, the gateway to Creation in the below, so Divine Energy and souls could flow down into Creation..
Creation was created to consist of seven Planes of Consciousness. The bright white light of the sixth plane, filled with mental light, was energetically across a gigantic abyss from the first Divine Journey. The next plane, also a mental light plane, was the fifth plane. Then came the next lower plane, the fourth, which is a plane of power, of God’s power, which can be a tricky plane to move up through, because if there is misuse of power, the soul goes back down. The next plane was the third plane of consciousness, where souls turn their gaze inwards, towards the inner, rather than focus on the outer, material world.
The lower planes were the second and first plane of consciousness, where the focus is naturally mostly on the outer world. The lowest plane, the zeroth plane was massive, and souls start of at the bottom of this plane on their spiritual journey back to God. The zeroth plane incorporated the mineral, plant, animal kingdoms and the beginnings of humanity.
The Perfect Masters had a physical body, yet their consciousness moved around on the first three Divine Journeys, so they had access to infinitely big amounts of energy, which they could focus on Creation.
Being Divine, Perfect Masters have Universal Consciousness. Aware of Reality, they know that Creation is an illusion. They operate in Creation, as they have a role to look after all the souls in Creation, and move them on through experiences on the Planes of Consciousness. When a soul has had enough experience and has balanced their karma enough, a Perfect Master will God-realize the soul, taking their consciousness up to one of the Divine Journeys, so they too experience themselves as their true nature, which is God. Having Universal Consciousness, the Perfect Masters are at the centre of Creation, they are the Pivot. They are at the centre of each soul. Everything they do affects all of Creation, as they help to balance karma and develop Creation spiritually.
The Perfect Masters look after and work on Creation while the Avatar is back in the Divine Journeys. Every four hundred to seven hundred years, the Avatar returns with souls in tow, in a major or minor incarnation. They do their Universal work, give instructions concerning what needs to be done to move Creation in the right direction and drop their physical body, and go back up the Divine Journeys again. The Perfect Masters do their best to implement the changes.
When an issue came up the Perfect Masters would take a vote on what to do. Sometimes an energetic vote would be unanimous, 100%, so full energy could be focused on an issue. If the vote was 4 to 1, or 3 to 2, then less energy would be focused on an issue, which might not have been enough, so the Avatar would have to fix that the next time around. Perhaps that is changing now, so the five Perfect Masters work together better.
When souls first come into Creation, they have a leaning to one of the Perfect Masters, Bliss, Wisdom, Power, Knowledge and Truth. They usually keep this affiliation. (Which means you will have a leaning to a particular Perfect Master).
When a Perfect Master drops their body and dies, the energy, quality or spirit of that Perfect Master lifts from them to seek out the next possible likely candidate. Then it descends on the new candidate and they become the next Perfect Master of that quality.
This Earth is currently the planet where all the frequencies of energy are found, and where all the planes and Divine Journeys can be accessed. This is the planet where the Avatar incarnates and where the five Perfect Masters live. What changes the Avatar and Perfect Masters make here on Earth radiates out into the rest of Creation.
Currently, humanity is an important focus for spirituality, so three Perfect Masters work with humanity, and two Perfect Masters focus on the Devic realm. All Perfect Masters work with the Archangels (who are on the sixth plane) and angels (who are on the fifth plane).
Perfect Masters may or may not work with groups of people, or make themselves known to the public as they are basically a bit busy looking after the whole of Creation, which is quite an all consuming job. It’s worth remembering that they are connected to all souls anyway, yours and mine, because they are in the centre of our souls, so in a sense they are working with us anyway.
Footnote: Before Meher Baba became Avatar, the Perfect Masters, who at that time lived not far away from him in India (which helped to protect him when he was younger) were Babajan, Sai Baba of Shirdi, Upasni Maharaj, Tajuddin Baba, and Narayan Maharaj. There is information about them and photographs, on the internet.
