A New Earth

In 1953 Meher Baba said,
It is important for the world. . . to know, and therefore I have explained about cycles, the position of the earth for Realization, the earth dying and the simultaneous evolution of another earth – not any other planet. 
(Meher Baba, Lord Meher, p. 4070)
This quote reminds me of two from the Bible.
Isaiah 65:17 "Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind."
Revelations 21:1 "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more."
One of the meanings of a heaven is a sky, or a constellation, and this was a conventional use of the word in ancient times. Thus a new heaven could be a new constellation in the sky, due to a new position in space, due to being on a literal new Earth.

Compare the above quotes from the Bible to this one by Baba.

"Many a world has gone, and this too will go. To take its place, another world is being made ready. Three-fourths of it is already ready, one-fourth remains to be formed." 
   (Lord Meher, p. 4203)
