Divine Love and Wisdom from Emanuel Swedenborg, Part 1 of 2

Divine Love and Wisdom from Emanuel Swedenborg, Part 1 of 2

Love together with wisdom in its very essence is in God. For God loves every one from love in Himself. For things limitless are in such order, successively and simultaneously, that taken together they make a one. It is from this, and this alone, that they can be held together and continually preserved. It is because the Divine Essence itself is love and wisdom, that all things in the universe have relation to good and truth. It is the essential of love not to love self, but to love others, and to be conjoined with others by love. It is the essential of love, to be loved by others. Love consists in this, that its own should be another’s; to feel the joy of another as joy in oneself, that is loving.

From Sufism’s Sacred Fihi ma Fihi: Discourse of Rumi : 18-19, Part 2 of 2

From Sufism’s Sacred Fihi ma Fihi: Discourse of Rumi : 18-19, Part 2 of 2

Rumi said: Someone said to Taj al-Din Quba’i, “These doctors of divinity live amongst us and deprive the people of their religious beliefs.” Taj al-Din Quba’i answered,“They do not live amongst us and take away our beliefs. God forbid they could ever be one of us.” No one becomes a scholar by virtue of robe and turban. Scholarship is a virtue in its very essence, and whether that virtue is clothed in tunic or overcoat, it makes no difference. Seek humanity: that is your true purpose. The rest is mere long-windedness. When words are elaborately decorated, their purpose is forgotten. The purpose is the root of the matter; the rest is merely a headache.

Mahavatar Babaji, the Immortal Yogi of Modern India: Selection from Autobiography of a Yogi, Part 2 of 2

Mahavatar Babaji, the Immortal Yogi of Modern India: Selection from Autobiography of a Yogi, Part 2 of 2

Only one reason, therefore, can motivate Babaji in maintaining His physical from century to century: the desire to furnish humanity with a concrete example of its own possibilities. Were man never vouchsafed a glimpse of Divinity in the flesh, he would remain oppressed by the heavy magic delusion that he cannot transcend his mortality. Thus it came about that a disciple of Lahiri Mahasaya was present when Babaji deemed the time to be ripe for Him to proclaim the possibility of bodily immortality. The great ones speak their words and participate in the seemingly natural course of events, solely for the good of man.

Mahavatar Babaji is known as the deathless Master of India. He is also known as the Great Avatar. Babaji told Lahiri Mahasaya that the Kriya Yoga which He is giving to the world through Him in the nineteenth century, is a revival of the same science which Krishma gave, millenniums ago, to Arjuna. Babaji has resided for at least hundreds of years in the remote Himalayan regions of India, seen in person by only a small number of disciples and other sincere seekers. Babaji’s mission in India has been to assist prophets in carrying out their special dispensations. “Babaji can be seen or recognized by others only when he so desires.

The true Method is silence. But in silence, you Know God. Not that in silence, then nothing. No, no. It’s not that. God is God. There’s nothing we can do to know Hirm. Hes is just there. I just show you where to look and to reveal Hirm. And when a God-like person walks on the street, his spiritual power naturally heals whoever needs to be healed. But that is by the will of God, not by the will of our hand or any of our ego, so-called, healing action.

I am not a prophet. I’m going to show you to be a prophet, not that I’m your prophet. I’m going to show you to be a master and a prophet yourself. I am coming here to tell you that you’re the prophet, that you are the children of God. And you can prove it to yourself if you want to try our method. I am telling you that you are great, and I can prove it to you if you want to try. Yes, that’s what I am going to show you how. That’s the silent Sound(=Heavenly Sound), the teaching of God. That’s the “Word” in the Bible. That’s why we call this Method “Immediate Enlightenment.”

From Sikhism’s Holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib: Guru Nanak, Pages 14-16, Part 2 of 2

Wisdom, honor and wealth are in the laps of those whose hearts remain permeated with the Lord. O Nanak, know the True Lord as True. Serving Him, peace is obtained; you shall go to His Court with honor. The Nectar of Truth of is not fermented from molasses. The True Name is contained within it. I am a sacrifice to those who hear and chant the True Name. Burn emotion attachment, and grind it into ink. Transform your intelligence into purest of paper. Make the love of the Lord your pen, and let your consciousness be the scribe. Then, seek the Guru’s Instructions, and record these deliberations.

The True Lord, the Fromless One, is Himself in His Own Place. I have heard, over and over again, and so I tell the tale; as it pleases You, Lord, please instill within me the yearning for You. You are the One True Lord and Master of all the other beings, of so many worlds. The pleasures of gold and silver, the pleasures of women, the pleasure of the fragrance of sandalwood, the pleasure of horses, the pleasure of a soft bed in a palace, the pleasure of sweet treats and the pleasure of hearty meals – these pleasures of the human body are so numerous; how can the Naam, the Name of the Lord, find its dwelling in the heart?

Selection from Sacred Text of Ancient Hinduism: Upanishads , Part 2 of 2

Beyond the senses are the objects, beyond the objects is the mind, beyond the mind is the intellect, beyond the intellect is the great Atman (Self). Beyond the great Atman is the Unmanifested; beyond the Unmanifested is the Purusha (the Cosmic Soul); beyond the Purusha there is nothing. That is the end, that is the final goal. The Atman (Self), hidden in all beings, does not shine forth; but It is seen by subtle seers through keen and subtle understanding.

Selection from Sacred Text of Ancient Hinduism: Upanishads , Part 1 of 2

Hinduism is believed to be one of the oldest living religions on Earth, with origins tracing back to the ancient Vedic civilization in India. Of all Vedic literature, the Upanishads alone are widely known, and their central ideas are at the spiritual core of Hinduism. The teachings were imparted in the form of dialogue between teacher and disciple. These ennobling lessons are practical for the modern world. Their teachings are summed up in two great sayings: Tat twam asi (That thou art) and Aham Brahmasmi (I am Brahman). This oneness of Soul and God lies at the very root of all Vedic thought, and the dominant ideal points to the unity of all life and the oneness of Truth.

Selection from the Holy Qur’an: Chapter 12 Yusuf (Joseph), Part 2 of 2

Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, was born in 570 AD in Mecca. At about age 40, He retired to a cave in the mountains and engaged in deep meditation. During this period of inner introspection, He first received messages from Allah through the Archangel Gabriel. The record of these divine revelations, which spanned over 23 years, can be found in the most holy book of Islam - the Qur’an. The story of Joseph in the Holy Qur’an, a continuous narrative, is considered one of the most beautifully written suras. They present an amazing variety of sciences and characters in a tightly-knit plot, and offer a dramatic illustration of some of the fundamental themes of the Holy Qur’an.
