”Whisperings of Self”- Rosicrucian Scripture, Read by Dr. Hugh McCague, Part 2 of 2

”Whisperings of Self”- Rosicrucian Scripture, Read by Dr. Hugh McCague, Part 2 of 2

I am pleased to present the following excerpts from the Rosicrucian book “Whisperings of Self” by Validivar. Men are united by the fact of religious experience, not by their collective interpretation of it. The most golden treasures of life are its beautiful memories. The labors involved in complex living are far in excess of the pleasures extracted therefrom. Everything is both cause and effect. It is an effect of a past cause. But it is likewise a cause of the effect that will emerge from it in the future. Each lends the color of his understanding to his surroundings.

”Whisperings of Self”- Rosicrucian Scripture, Read by Dr. Hugh McCague, Part 1 of 2

Whispering of Self is a collection of intuitive impressions received by a great mystic philosopher, Ralph M. Lewis, who in this work writes under the pen name of Validivar. The aphorisms in this collection has appeared singly in copies of the Rosicrucian Digest over a period of forty years, and comprise insights into all areas of human experience - justice, war and peace, ethics, morals, marriage, family, work, leisure, and countless others. The words chosen succinctly describe the pattern of the universe. They tell of the hows, whens, wheres, and whys of existence.

Tao Te Ching – The Enlightened Way of Lao Tzu, Part 2 of 2

Tao Te Ching – The Enlightened Way of Lao Tzu, Part 2 of 2

“To yield is to be preserved whole. To be bent is to become straight. To be hollow is to be filled. To be tattered is to be renewed. To be in wants is to possess. To have plenty is to be confused. Therefore the Sage embraces the One, and becomes the model of the world.” “The highest perfection is like imperfection, and its use is never impaired. The greatest abundance seems meager, and its use will never fail. What’s most straight appears devious. The greatest skill appears clumsiness. The greatest eloquence seems like stuttering.”

Selection from Zen Master Lương Sĩ Hằng’s Sacred Teachings, Part 2 of 2

Even though we say “we don’t have” , but we do have —God and Earth bestow on us the pure energy that nourishes our soul. We feel safe, healthy and light, and we can manifest all the love inside and outside of ourselves. The soul controls the mind, but if the soul doesn’t want to go upward, then the mind is causing more and more storms. When spiritual practitioners go up a little, they will be challenged by the other realms. Therefore, spiritual practitioners have to be very careful, we have to know clearly what we are doing and check up our action every day.

Tao Te Ching – The Enlightened Way of Lao Tzu, Part 1 of 2

Lao Tzu said that, “this kind of person will constantly retain the excellence of his nature all the time. He became the child again; free from all flaws, from all stains. This is a man, a woman, who has attained the Tao.” Yes, who has been enlightened. So with this essay, Lao Tzu wanted to tell His disciples how to act, how to behave, how to distinguish a person who has attained the Tao. He will look like this; very strong, very powerful, very wise, yet very simple, very humble, very ordinary. You don’t boast about it, because the man, after he attains enlightenment, for him, it’s simple like breathing. It’s very simple and natural to them anyway.

The Ultimate Fortune of Meeting a Perfect Living Master: Interview with Ishwar Puri Ji, Part 2 of 4

The spiritual path is not the journey from one drop finding an ocean. It is discovery of our own true Self where we already are. We are oceans functioning temporarily as drops. When we expand our awareness, we become the ocean. That’s the true path. That’s what it is. So far as the meditational practices are concerned, they’re designed to keep our attention within ourselves, inside behind the eyes at the third eye center. And therefore, we use several practices, the most important being repetition of certain words. By repeating those words, we are able to prevent the mind from thinking of other things.

The teachings of Great Master are not a religion at all. It’s good for every religion of the world. It’s a way to discover your own Self. And every religion wants us to discover the Truth about our own Self. Therefore, you cannot call the Path of the Masters or Sant Mat, taught by Great Master Hazur Maharaj Baba Sawan Singh, a religion. He Himself said it is not a religion, and His followers included members of every religion of the world, including those who did not believe in religion. Even atheists were followers of Great Master.

Allah gives firmness to those who believe, with the firm word, in this life, and in the Hereafter. Allah does whatever He wills. Allah is He Who created the heavens and the earth, and sends down water from the sky, and with it produces fruits for your sustenance. “Our Lord, You know what we conceal and what we reveal. And nothing is hidden from Allah, on earth or in heaven.” That Allah may repay each soul according to what it has earned. Allah is Quick in reckoning.

The Natural Way to Spiritual Liberation: Interview with Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, MD, Part 2 of 2

The Natural Way to Spiritual Liberation: Interview with Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, MD, Part 2 of 2

It’s eating in a way that uplifts the web of life on the planet, and honors the web of life on the planet, and creating eating as a sanctification and bringing holiness to all of life. And Grace happens when you’re ready. That’s God’s decision. Including eating vegan, which does create a more peaceful way – then, it brings social order. The purpose of life is to know and merge with the Divine. What I’m talking about primarily is a way of life, Sanatana Dharma, that supports your readiness to wake up into liberation. In the process of going within, we then have the opportunity to know our oneness, the Truth of who we are.

The fasting, the mechanics of fasting is really the same, but the intent on which you enter the fasting is what’s different. The Portals of Liberation is more actively supporting what we call in yoga, the four components. What are they? Vairagya - equal vision,Viveka - the alility to distinguish between the temporal reality and cosmic reality. Mumukshutva - it’s, again, a yogic term, which means “desire for God.” And samadhi sampatti shakti - is the six aspects of developing the mind. So, that is what the Portals of liberation are about,really. It’s more intense focus.

Selection from the Holy Kitab-I-Aqdas of the Baha’i Faith: Paragraphs 81-103, Part 2 of 2

Baha’u’llah was the enlightened Prophet and founder of the Baha’i Faith. He and His teachings are believed to be prophesied in Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and other religions. The word Baha means ‘glory’ or ‘splendor.’ The Baha’i Faith rests on three core principles: unity of God, unity of religion, and unity of humankind. Baha’i principles envision an ideal society. These principles are gender equality; elimination of all forms of prejudice whether religious, racial, class or national; harmony of religion and science; universal opportunity of education for all; a universal auxiliary language, which all humanity can use to cooperate quickly with one another; a judicious world government and the elimination of extremes of wealth and poverty.

The day is approaching when thy agitation will have been transmuted into peace and quiet calm.

Selections from “Four Doctrines,” “Athanasian Creed” and “Earths in the Universe” by Emanuel Swedenborg, Part 2 of 2

The style of the Word (Holy Bible) is the Divine style itself, with which no other style, however sublime and excellent it may seem, is at all to be compared; for every other style is as darkness is to light. The style of the Word is such that there is holiness in every sentence, and in every word, and in some places in even the very letters. This is why the Word conjoins man with the Lord, and opens Heaven. From the Lord proceed two things: Divine love, and Divine wisdom (or, what is the same, Divine good, and Divine truth, for Divine good is of His Divine love, and Divine truth is of His Divine wisdom).

Doctrine of Faith: That faith and truth are one. In its origin or beginning, charity is the affection of good, and as good loves truth, the affection of good produces the affection of truth, and through it the acknowledgment of truth which is faith. Doctrine of Life: All religion is of the life, and the life of religion is to do that which is good. Those who do what is good from themselves will be called natural men. That no one can from himself do any good that is really good, is taught by the Lord.

From Buddhism’s Sacred Scripture: The Sutra of the Lotus of the Wonderful Dharma, Chapter 3, Part 2 of 8

At that time the Buddha said to Sariputra, “Now, in the midst of this great assembly of heavenly and human beings, shramanas (wandering monks), Brahmans (members of a higher social class) and so forth, I say this. In the past, under twenty thousand million Buddhas, for the sake of the unsurpassed way I have constantly taught and converted you. And you throughout the long night followed me and accepted my instruction. Now, because I want to make you recall to mind the way that you originally vowed to follow, for the sake of the voice-hearers I am preaching this Great Vehicle sutra called the Lotus of the Wonderful Dharma, a Dharma to instruct the Bodhisattvas, one that is guarded by the Buddhas.

From Buddhism’s Sacred Scripture: The Sutra of the Lotus of the Wonderful Dharma, Chapter 3, Part 1 of 8

WHEN I HEARD THE SOUND OF THIS DHARMA (true teaching), I gained what I had never had before. My mind was filled with great joy, I was released from all bonds of the net of doubt. From past times I have received the Buddha's teachings and have not been denied the Great Vehicle. The Buddha's sound is very rarely heard, but it can free living beings from distress. Already I have put an end to outflows (earthly desires), and hearing this, am freed from care and distress. I lived in the mountain valleys or under the forest trees, sometimes sitting, sometimes walking around, and constantly I thought of this matter-how severely I taxed myself!
