From One Soul to Another: Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 3, May 15, 1999

From One Soul to Another: Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 3, May 15, 1999

“God has two attributes: form and formless. And even in the attribute of form, Hes has two forms. If Hes wants to materialize in this world, Hes becomes like this. All of these are God materializations. That’s why the Bible says, ‘God dwells within you.’ It’s really funny how you don’t know you are God. And there is another form, invisible form, that God manifests also when you meditate within, to communicate with you. That is a little higher level. In the highest level, God is formless: God is only bliss, light, happiness, indescribable ecstasy; indescribable. And when you see the invisible form inside of God, you already feel so ecstatic, you already lose yourself in Hirm; you don’t know what to do already. And if we come to the highest level, then we become one with God, like Jesus said, ‘I and my Father are one.’ And then, later you even have no more ‘I’ and no more ‘Father,’ but only Father, only God, and then everything you’ll say, ‘Not I do, but God does it. My Father does it.' To know God is very instantly; to get to the higher level or the highest level takes some more time. Because just like in the Bible, it says, ‘In my Father’s house, there are many mansions.’ That means many different attributes of God we must know, one by one.” “But God is above all that. God is all love, forgiving. God is always with us, wants to protect us, to give us all the happiness that we want. Just that we have to contact Hirm to receive it.”

It's Not Too Late to Get Enlightenment, Part 1 of 5 Nov 26, 1994, Thailand

That’s the trouble with our world. Everyone is so humble and so shy, and does not try to express our feelings and does not try hard to achieve what we want to do. Our shyness and fear sometimes inhibit us and let us get stuck in our daily routine despite our eagerness to find some new solution or some new meaning to our life. And that’s also the reason why I think many of us cannot attain enlightenment, even though the Buddha has promised that every one of us will become Buddha. He is the one who became the Buddha, but we will become Buddha. He said all of us have Buddha Nature.

The Only Criminal is Ignorance, Part 2 of 3 May 28, 1999, Prague, Czech Republic

We must love our neighbor, we must even love our enemy; but, it is difficult for us because we do not realize how great the neighbor is, how great the enemy also is, because we do not realize how great we are ourselves. God cannot give peace on Earth if we do not make peace ourselves. Because we have the power. We are the representatives of God here. We must do things that we should do in this level because we exist here. But to see Heaven, to see the celestial world, to see the invisible side of God, we must use heavenly ears, we must use heavenly eye.

Selection from the Book of Lieh Tzu: Chapter 1 - Heaven's Gift, Part 1 of 2

Selection from the Book of Lieh Tzu: Chapter 1 - Heaven's Gift, Part 1 of 2

Formerly the sages reduced Heaven and Earth to a system by means of the Yin and Yang. But if all that has shape was born from the Shapeless, from what were Heaven and Earth born? I answer: There was a Primal Simplicity, there was a Primal Commencement, there were Primal Beginnings, there was a primal Material. The Primal Simplicity preceded the appearance of the breath. The Primal Commencement was the beginning of the breath. The Primal Beginnings were the breath beginning to assume shape. The primal Material was the breath when it began to assume substance.

Jainism's Holy Akaranga Sutra: Book I, Seventh Lecture - Liberation, Lessons 1 - 4, Part 2 of 2

Jainism's Holy Akaranga Sutra: Book I, Seventh Lecture - Liberation, Lessons 1 - 4, Part 2 of 2

Excerpts from Book I - Lecture 7 from Jainism’s Akaranga Sutra: A householder, without betraying his intention, may approach a mendicant and give unto him or prepare pleasant lodgings and accommodate the mendicant. A mendicant should well observe and know it that the householder injures living beings to give, he may order the householder not to show such over-attentiveness. Thus I say. Those who are awakened, should not wish for pleasure, nor do harm, nor desire any forbidden things. A person who is without desires and does no harm unto any living beings in the whole world, is called by me ‘unfettered’. One free from passions understands perfectly the bright one, knowing birth in the upper and nether regions.

Fill Life with Love and Wonder, Part 2 of 3 May 18 , 1999, Bulgaria

In our practicing group, we have all kinds of nationalities, all kinds of religious believers, but we work together in peace and harmony, as if we have known each other for thousands of years, the instant we see each other for the first time. Why? It is because we speak the same inner language, and we understand each other at the level of higher consciousness. This (inner) Heavenly Music we can hear now while we are living, so that we can understand what God wants to teach us, what is the instruction from Heaven, what is God’s will, so that we cannot go wrong in this world. And then we will live our lives more in harmony with the mandate of Heaven.

It is my privilege that God has ordered me to share this knowledge among our brothers and sisters on this planet. And I will do so until my last breath on Earth, just to show people how simple it is to recognize your greatness, how simple it is to make use of the treasure within ourselves, to get in touch with God and to live happily in the Heavenly kind of atmosphere while still continuing duties on this planet. Because only by knowing God we will stop all hatred and all wars, all misunderstandings between people. Only by knowing God we can dispel these physical illusions, which envelop us daily in our existence and make us feel weak, make us feel hopeless, make us feel ignorant and, therefore, succumb to all kinds of suffering.

It's Not Too Late to Get Enlightenment, Questions and Answers, Part 5 of 5 Nov 26, 1994, Thailand

Actually, you are already liberated, just you don’t know. So, you need clearing, with the initiation and the meditation process, to clear your vision. Not only you are liberated, your deceased relatives, many generations, will also derive from your merit and be liberated as well. That’s guaranteed. But to become a Buddha, it takes maybe longer. Because you have forgotten that you are a Buddha for a long time now, it takes a long time to remember again. That’s why we need to meditate every day. Because the teacher is responsible for your liberation and will take you out of the transmigration after you leave this world.

Tuning in to the Higher Frequency of Spiritual Wisdom: An Interview with Mr. James Bean (vegan), Part 3 of 5

In an effort to inform people that veganism has always been a requirement for spiritual Truth seekers, Mr. James Bean compiled a booklet highlights lesser-known writings in Christian scriptures regarding dietary choices. “And so, when I came up with this booklet of vegetarian Christianity, making Christianity vegan, that’s based on years of research, finding all of these amazing vegetarian passages, and actually vegan, because there’s no reference to dairy products, either. It’s all plant-based references. And they can read up on the evidence for vegetarianism of Jesus, The Apostles, John the Baptist as well and later generations of Christians and Christian movements, Gnostic Gospels, of course the Essenes, the Essene teachings of Judaism. I’ve tried to put all of that together. It’s got all kinds of different sections to it: biblical vegetarianism, the vegetarianism of the Gnostics, vegetarianism of the Ebionites, which is just a fancy name for the Hebrew Christians or the original Jesus Movement of Israel.”

Selections from “Aphorisms II” – A Book by Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan), Part 2 of 2

“Get more enlightened and then you’ll be more loving. That’s the purpose of enlightenment. Enlightenment makes us more loving, more tolerant and more understanding. That’s the best outcome of spiritual cultivation.” “It’s not meditation that protects you. It’s the awakening of your own power within that protects you. It’s knowing that you’re God that protects you.” “The more people know God, the more people contact God directly and become happier, the more peaceful the world will be, the less war there will be, and the more we can bring Heaven onto Earth.” “Actually, everything takes care of itself in time. But meanwhile, we should try our best to make life better and always avoid violence. That’s the lesson of all the Shakyamuni Buddha stories – we have to surrender to God’s will and be tolerant and patient. When the time comes, everything will change.”

Create a Permanent Heaven for Yourself and Later Generations , Part 3 of 4, March 3, 1992 , Singapore

We could make it into a golden age again, by living the way of a Christian, living the way of a Buddhist, the way of a true Hindu, etc. Take care of our moral responsibilities, help our neighbors as much as we can, sacrifice some of our wealth, our palate’s desires, in order to help in developing the world and help other needy brothers and sisters. In this way, we contribute our effort to build a better nation for the future generation to come. It is not a loss. It will be to the benefit of our children and grandchildren, and nephews and our brothers’ and sisters’ children.

The Creation of Nurturers on Earth: Exploring Mayan Spirituality in the Sacred Book “Popol Vuh,” Part 2 of 2

“Popol Vuh” describes how humans were created from a mix of yellow and white corn. “They (the first four humans) were good people, handsome with looks of the male kind. Thoughts came into existence and they gazed; their vision came all at once. Perfectly they saw, perfectly then knew everything under the sky, whenever they looked. The moment they turned around and looked around in the sky, on the earth, everything was seen without any obstruction. They didn’t have to walk around before they could see what was under the sky; they just stayed where they were. …And they (the first four humans) saw everything under the sky perfectly. After that, they thanked the Maker, Modeler: ‘Truly now, double thanks, triple thanks that we’ve been formed, we’ve been given our mouths, our faces, we speak, we listen, we wonder, we move, our knowledge is good, we’ve understood what is far and near, and we’ve seen what is great and small under the sky, on the earth. Thanks to you we’ve been formed, we’ve come to be made and modeled, our grandmother, our grandfather…’”

From The Essene Humane Gospel of Christ: Peace and Safety for All God’s Creatures, Part 1 of 2

From The Essene Humane Gospel of Christ: Peace and Safety for All God’s Creatures, Part 1 of 2

Lord Jesus Christ, also known as Lord Yeshua, was born into the Essenes Brotherhood, and the Essenes wrote detailed accounts about the Beloved Master’s life and teachings. One of these texts whose fragments have fortunately been preserved is called The Essene Humane Gospel of Christ. Today we’ll read a selection near the beginning of the Essene Humane Gospel of Christ. “And Joseph (Yeshua’s father) spoke these words: ‘Blessed be the True God of our fathers and our mothers in Israel, for in the acceptable time Thou hast surely heard my voice and in the day of salvation hast Thou always helped me. For did not Thou saith, “I will preserve Thy Holy seed and make with Thee a covenant of the people to renew the face of the Earth and return everything back to its root; and to cause the desolate places to be rescued from the very hands of those doing the spoiling.” For Thou hast promised to restore Eden over the face of the Earth and give peace and joy unto all the creatures. That Thou mayest say to the captives, “Go ye forth and be set free, even as ye were born free”; and to them that live in darkness, because of fear, Thou sayest, “Show yourselves in the light of day, and be ye not afraid anymore; for they, one and all, shall again feed in the ways of pleasantness only. For Thy people at that time SHALL NO MORE HUNT NOR WORRY THE CREATURES WITH FEAR OF HUNGER, FOR ALL SHALL BE FED AND SATISFIED, which I have made to rejoice before my eyes.”’”

From the Rosicrucian Order’s The Sanctuary of Self: on the Mystical Life, Part 1 of 3

The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis, also known as the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, is a worldwide cultural, educational, and philosophical organization that is perpetuating profound and practical teachings of the Rosicrucians. These teachings, as passed down and added to over the centuries from ancient Egypt to Europe and now all over the world, pertain to the mysteries of the universe, nature, and humans themselves. Today we will explore the process that could lead us to the mystical life according to the Rosicrucian Order, in Chapter 1 of the book “The Sanctuary of Self” by the late Rosicrucian leader Ralph M. Lewis. Chapter I THE MYSTICAL LIFE. “The mystical life provides the reason why we live. The mystical life determines the cause of our individual lives and the use to which we should put our bodies and our animal vitality and magnetism. The mystical life, like the physical life, requires certain preparation. If we must study the rules of diet, if we must study hygiene, if we must know the rudiments of good health to be healthy and physically normal, certainly we should give some thought and consideration to the mystical side of our existence as well.”

It's Not Too Late to Get Enlightenment, Part 3 of 5 Nov 26, 1994, Thailand

The Buddha has 84,000 methods to teach the disciples. I think I'll make use of every one of them. Anything that can help sentient beings to realize their true nature and leave aside the attachment at the end, it is a good method, it's a good way. It is the same way of learning, just a more charming, more attractive way of learning. Just a way of putting color into this miserable situation and trying to make the best out of our lives while we are waiting for our final liberation from the physical prison.

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 2 of 3

00:15:30

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 2 of 3

Today, Mr. Asa Keisar readily elaborates on the Holy Torah’s requirement of justice for the animals. “About tza’ar ba’alei chayim (suffering of living creatures), it’s not only for the animals. First, it’s for us. Why? Because if we make suffering for the animal, when we eat, we take bad energy. And this energy makes us angry, makes us not good, not only in the spirit, but even in the body. When the Torah said, ‘Don’t steal from people,’ She doesn’t mean only for the people that you make something bad. You make something bad for you, for your soul, if you steal. All the scholars in Judaism say that there’s no difference in the tza’ar, in the suffering between the animals and human beings. Because the reason is not the intelligence, it’s common sense. And all the animals feel hot and cold, and all kinds of suffering. This is evidence. And Judaism is right 100% in the Book. You know something about kashrut (Jewish dietary laws), if you make suffering for the animals, its not kosher (permitted foods for kashrut).”

Selection from Spiritual Gems: Baba Sawan Singh Ji's Letters, Part 1 of 2

Gur Mat(Sant Mat) is above all religions. The ritualistic part of all religions is blind and misleading; no matter what the religion might be – whether our own or of other people. As to the good and bad things or the sin and the virtue, both becoming meaningless, that may be. When you leave the British Territory and pass into the land of the Pathans, who can ask you to account for your deeds? While you are here in the region of Kal, you have to account for all that you do. Once you cross over to the region of Dayal (Merciful), who can touch you? This applies only when you have actually crossed the boundary of Kal.

How to Attain Knowledge of the Higher Worlds by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 3 of 3

How to Attain Knowledge of the Higher Worlds by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 3 of 3

“Now the important thing that everyone must clearly understand is that, for him who is right in the midst of the objective civilization of our time, it is very difficult to advance to the knowledge of the higher worlds. He can do so only if he works energetically within himself. At a time when the conditions of outward life were simpler, spiritual exaltation was easier of attainment.” “He who seeks for higher knowledge must create it within himself; he himself must instill it into his soul. It cannot be done by study; it can only be done through living.” “If I meet a brother and blame him for his weakness, I rob myself of power to win the higher knowledge; but if I try to enter lovingly into his merits, I then gather such power.” “Every moment, in which we set ourselves to banish from our consciousness whatever remains in it of disparaging, suspicious judgment of our fellow-men, brings us nearer to the knowledge of higher things.”

Each creature is only a modification of the other; the likeness in them is more than the difference, and their radical law is one and the same. So intimate is this Unity, that, it is easily seen. For, it pervades Thought also. The eye, - the mind, and these are incomparably the richest informations of the power and order that lie at the heart of things. That spirit creates; one and not compound, it does not act upon us from without, that is, in space and time, but spiritually, or through ourselves: therefore, that spirit, that is, the Supreme Being.
