Perceive the Truth by Inner Wisdom: Questions and Answers, Part 4 of 5 April 21, 1993, Geneva, Switzerland

How can we use the knowledge that we have learned in the past life in this life? Well, the present time is more important than the past. If in the present life, we are enlightened, by a Master, the future is no more problem. And the past is also disconnected. Otherwise, we’d have so many lives on Earth, and so many past records, we can’t correct them all. What is Tao? “Tao” is like you say, the Kingdom of God, the Buddha nature, the great Self, the Wisdom.

The Six Enneads by Plotinus: The First Ennead, First Tractate - The Animate and the Man, Sections 1-5, Part 2 of 2

The Six Enneads by Plotinus: The First Ennead, First Tractate - The Animate and the Man, Sections 1-5, Part 2 of 2

Now if there is a coalescence, the lower is ennobled, the nobler degraded; the body is raised in the scale of being as made participant in life; the Soul, as associated with death and unreason, is brought lower. All this is rather in the province of something which we may call the Animate. Now this Animate might be merely the body as having life: it might be the Union of Soul and body: it might be a third and different entity formed from both.

Selection from Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: Book III & IV, Part 1 of 2

BOOK III-VIBHOOTI PADA The Book of Powers Dharana (concentration) is holding the mind on to some particular object. An unbroken flow of knowledge to that object is Dhyana (meditation). When that, giving up all forms, reflects only the meaning, it is Samadhi. The three processes of Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi, when taken together on the same object, place or point is called Samyama. By the conquest of that comes light of knowledge.

From Sufism’s Sacred Fihi ma Fihi: Discourses of Rumi, Discourse 11, Part 2 of 2

Though the words of the great saints appear in a hundred different forms, since God is one and the Way is one, how can their words be different? Though their teachings appear to contradict, their meaning is one. Separation exists in their outward form only; in inner purpose they all agree. The great saints have seen for themselves, not by proof and rote, but face to face and unveiled, that all people - good or evil – are obedient servants of God. Nothing exists that does not proclaim God’s praise.

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.

From the Book of Enoch: The Book of Parables – Selection from the Second Parable, Part 2 of 2

And He will choose the Righteous and the Holy from among them; for the day has come near when they must be saved. And in those days, the Chosen One will sit on His throne, and all the Secrets of Wisdom will flow out from the Council of His mouth, for the Lord of Spirits and glorified Him. For in those days the Chosen One will have risen and the earth will rejoice. “All these things which you have seen serve the authority of His Messiah, so that He may be strong and powerful on the Earth.”

From the Book of Enoch: The Book of Parables – Selection from the Second Parable, Part 1 of 2

The book of Enoch is an ancient Jewish apocalyptic religious text, which describes the intensity Of the Antediluvian (pre-Flood) time period. “This is the Son of Man who has righteousness and with whom righteousness dwells. He will reveal all the treasures of that which is secret.” And in that place I saw an inexhaustible spring of righteousness and many springs of wisdom surrounded it, and all the thirsty drank from them and were filled with wisdom, and their dwelling was with the Righteous and the Holy and the Chosen. For in His Name they are saved and He is the one who will require their lives.

Writings of Bahá'u'lláh: The Seven Valleys, Part 7 of 8

O friend, the heart is the dwelling-place of eternal mysteries: Make it not the home of fleeting fancies. Waste not the treasure of thy precious life occupied with this swiftly passing world. Thou come from the world of holiness: Bind not thine heart to the earth. Thou art a dweller in the court of reunion: Choose not the homeland of the dust. “Nothing can befall us but what God hath destined for us.” Peace be upon him who follows the way of guidance! After scaling the high summits of wonderment, the wayfarer cometh to the Valley of True Poverty and Absolute Nothingness. “All on the Earth shall pass away, but the face of thy Lord. ”

Poetic Essays from The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran: ”The Coming of the Ship” and ”On Giving,” Part 2 of 2

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. For what are your possessions but things you keep and guard for fear you may need them tomorrow? And tomorrow, what shall tomorrow bring to the over prudent dog burying bones in the trackless sand as he follows the pilgrims to the holy city? And what is fear of need but need itself? Is not dread of thirst when your well is full, the thirst that is unquenchable?

Writings of Bahá’u’lláh: The Seven Valleys, Part 4 of 8

O My brother! A pure heart is as a mirror; cleanse it with the burnish of love and severance from all save God, that the true sun may shine therein and the eternal morning dawn. Then will thou clearly see the meaning of “Earth and Heaven cannot contain Me; what can alone contain Me is the heart of him that believeth in Me.” And thou will take up thy life in thy hand and with infinite longing cast before thy newly found Beloved. Whensoever the light of the revelation of the King of Oneness settleth upon the throne of the heart and soul, His radiance becometh visible in every limb and member.

Perceive the Truth by Inner Wisdom: Questions and Answers, Part 5 of 5 April 21, 1993, Geneva, Switzerland

Don’t You think that many religions are sometimes responsible for wars and why it is so? It’s not the religions that are responsible, but we are responsible. We make discrimination between religions. We force people into our belief by violence, and that was never the intention of the founder of any religion. Even Jesus when He was alive, He never forced people to believe Him. He said, “Give unto Cesar what belongs to Cesar!” And even people crucified Him, He didn’t protest. He wanted to show the disciples the way of surrender, the way of forgiveness, the way of love.

But if there are those of keep capacities, wise and understanding, of much learning and strong memory, who seek the Buddha way… If you see a son of the Buddha observing the precepts, clean and spotless as a pure bright gem, seeking the Great Vehicle Sutra… If I described all the characteristics of those who seek the Buddha way, I could exhaust a kalpa and never be done. Persons of this type are capable of believing and understanding. Therefore for them you should preach the Lotus Sutra of the Wonderful Dharma.

Selection from Meister Eckhart’s Sermons “The Attractive Power of God” and “The Self-Communication of God,” Part 2 of 2

The soul has by nature two capacities. The one is intelligence, which may comprehend the Holy Trinity with all its works. The second capacity is Will. Its essential characteristic is to plunge into the Unknown which is God. The Unknown God imparts His impress to the Will. The soul is greater by its love-giving power than by its life-giving power. Thank God, while you are in time, that He brought you out of non-existence to existence, and united you with the Divine Nature. But if the Divine Nature be beyond your comprehension, believe simply in Christ; follow His holy example and remain steadfast.

Selection from Zoroastrianism’s Sacred Menog-i Khrad: Chapters 31- 40, Part 1 of 2

Zoroaster was a prophet who lived in ancient Iran around 1800 BC. The teachings that emerged from His visions of God have become known as Zoroastrianism. Zoroastrian theology’s main tenets include the existence of one God and the personal happiness or reward that is the natural outcome of using one’s free will to formulate good thoughts, good words and good deeds. Respecting all life, Zoroaster was Himself a pure vegetarian and forbade all animal sacrifice. His universal philosophy is believed to have influenced Greek thought and major revealed religions of the world.

Selection from “The Practice of the Presence of God: The Best Rule of Holy Life” by Brother Lawrence, Part 1 of 2

Having found in many books different methods of going to GOD, and multiple practices of the spiritual life, I thought this would serve rather to puzzle me, than facilitate what I sought after, which was nothing but how to become wholly GOD’S. This made me resolve to give the all for the All: so after having given myself wholly to GOD, to make all the satisfaction I could for my sins, I renounced, for the love of Him, everything that was not He; and I began to live as if there was none but He and I in the world.

Selection from Meister Eckhart’s Sermons “The Attractive Power of God” and “The Self-Communication of God,” Part 1 of 2

Eckhart von Hochheim, widely known as Meister Eckhart, was a German theologian, philosopher, and mystic who lived in the late 13th and early 14th centuries. While respected as an accomplished academic theologian, Meister Eckhart was exceptionally remembered for his boldly expressed sermons. At the time, people in Europe were experiencing turmoil of different kinds, including famine and plagues. This led many to turn inward to spirituality and mystical experience. They listened to Meister Eckhart’s sermons with great interest, especially as his main theme was the holiness of the individual soul and its oneness with God.

Meditation is the Source of Love, Part 1 of 3, April 20, 1991

Why do my disciples like Quan Yin Method? It is because they have benefited from it. The more they meditate, the more they feel the difference. They feel they are glowing, - even their outer appearance is changed. When we meditate, if we can focus all our attention on one point and put any problem before it, the problem can be solved immediately. Our power is tremendous; it’s just that we do not use it every day by focusing it on one point, so it seems that we are powerless.

Selection from the Book of Kuan Tzu, Part 2 of 2

“He brought unity and order to the entire realm so that even today people enjoy his gift to them.” “If the government is entrusted to men of virtue, the state will be safe. If the heed is paid to the five grains, food will be sufficient. If mulberry and hemp are cultivated, the people will be prosperous. If the orders accord with the will of the people, they will be carried out as though inspiring awe.” Be like Earth. Be like Heaven. What partiality or favoritism have they? Be like the moon. Be like the sun. Such is the constancy of a true prince. He who examines the time, finds out what is applicable to them, and so is able to fill his offices with men of ability, may be elevated as a prince.

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.

Selection from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Essay “Self-Reliance”

Selection from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Essay “Self-Reliance”

In which the renowned philosopher encourages us to follow our own true self by sticking to our own inner voice and by being honest and sincere in our relationships with others. We create self-reliance — the essence of both faith and optimism. What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think. This rule, equally arduous in actual and in intellectual life, may serve for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness. It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
