Poetic Essays from The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran: ”The Coming of the Ship” and ”On Giving,” Part 1 of 2

Born in 1883, Kahlil Gibran was an enlightened Lebanese philosopher, author, poet, and artist, who immigrated to the United States when he was young. As a writer, he inspired a transformation in Arabic literature with his simple and direct style, as well as the highly relatable themes he chose. But some of his best-known works were in English and won the popularity of a wider American audience. Kahlil Gibran’s most famous work is “The Prophet,” a book of 26 poetic essays that he began while still a youth in Lebanon and published in 1923.

Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Selection from Book 4, Part 2 of 2

Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Selection from Book 4, Part 2 of 2

Founding his beliefs on the teachings of Stoicism, the Roman emperor was also diligent in finding his own way of self-improvement. This 12-volume work has been revered by many other philosophers over the centuries and is praised as a real testament to a government of duty and service. We now continue with excerpts from the personal reflective notes of Marcus Aurelius in Book 4 of “Meditations.” “What is ‘eternal’ fame? Emptiness. Then what should we work for? Only this: proper understanding; unselfish action; truthful speech. A resolve to accept whatever happens as necessary and familiar, flowing like water from that same source and spring. Everything [is] transitory – the knower and the known. Constant awareness that everything is born from change. The knowledge that there is nothing nature loves more than to alter what exists and make new things like it.”

From Sufism's Sacred Fihi ma Fihi: Discourses of Rumi, Discourse 11, Part 1 of 2

00:13:56

From Sufism's Sacred Fihi ma Fihi: Discourses of Rumi, Discourse 11, Part 1 of 2

“I am God.” Some people think this is a great pretension, but “I am God” is in fact a great humility. Those who say, instead, “I am a servant of God” believe that two exist, themselves and God. But those who say, “I am God” have become nothing and have cast themselves to the winds. They say, “I am God” meaning, “I am not, God is all. There is no existence but God. I have lost all separation. I am nothing.” In this the humility is greater.

The Five Virtues of Confucianism, Part 2 of 5, Feb 02, 2019

The Five Virtues of Confucianism, Part 2 of 5, Feb 02, 2019

So a person who is vegan, practices spiritually and meditates is definitely a peaceful citizen. All governments should encourage their citizens to be vegan, Right? You see, it’s only one word – benevolence, and Confucius has taught us so much. Of course benevolence should include love for animals. To love those who are weaker is to be benevolent, isn’t it? You not only love those who are the same as you. If a country is already peaceful, then the neighboring country could learn from its example and have a good relationship with it. Then they would not make war against each others.

Selected Poems from Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore, Part 2 of 2

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free; Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; Where words come out from the depth of truth; Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection; Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit; Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action – Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake. This is my prayer to thee, my lord – strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart. Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows. Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service. Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might. Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles. And give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy will with love.

Now Is the Trend for Peace

Why I invite them. The Westerners, they don’t know much about spiritual practice. So they need to be encouraged a little bit. That' number one. Second, they don’t know how to cook vegan. It’s more difficult (for them) to buy vegan products. So I invite them. So don’t be jealous. Actually, I have also invited those Chinese grannies before. So I told them, it’s because elderly people worked very hard their entire life. Very few people think of them. Also, they don’t have much time left. That’s why I invite them. It’s not discrimination. It’s all because of love. It’s not that I prefer some people. I am always very fair. Why do I invite the Aulacese (Vietnamese)? You know it clearly. Their country had wars and turbulences for a long time. They suffered a lot. Their hearts need a little comfort. I should thank you. You practice well; the country is more prosperous. To be accepted into the World Trade Organization in an honor. Âu Lạc is prosperous now. I’m happy for you. “Âu ca lạc nghiệp”. (“happy and prosperous.”) That is the reason for changing the name. It brings happiness and prosperity. Remember, okay? Âu Lạc.

Selection from Ralph Waldo Emerson's Book “Nature”: Essays “Discipline” and “Spirit,” Part 1 of 2

In view of the significance of nature, we arrive at once at a new fact, that nature is a discipline. This use of the world includes the preceding uses, as parts of itself. Space, time, society, labor, climate, food, locomotion, the animals, the mechanical forces, give us sincerest lessons, day by day, whose meaning is unlimited. They educate both the Understanding and the Reason. Every property of matter is a school for the understanding, - its solidity or resistance, its inertia, its extension, its figure, its divisibility.

Global Spiritual Movement towards a Vegan Era of Peace and Collaboration: Interview with Rabbi David Rosen, Part 3 of 3

Global Spiritual Movement towards a Vegan Era of Peace and Collaboration: Interview with Rabbi David Rosen, Part 3 of 3

As our interview continues, Rabbi David Rosen speaks about how he approaches the Jewish community to encourage its members to rethink their diet. And then if they can understand, especially with regards to the animals specifically, but also with regards to environmental issues and the consequences of this, it’s possible to influence people to see this as wrong. And everybody can do something. And one doesn’t have to depend upon politicians to be able to make decisions. Everyone can contribute to making their environment a better place, above all, through serving others, especially the vulnerable and the needy; orphans, widows, homeless, people who need attention.

Teachings of Chuang Tzu: Chapter 13, The Heaven's Tao, Part 2 of 4

00:13:45

Teachings of Chuang Tzu: Chapter 13, The Heaven's Tao, Part 2 of 4

Today, we present to you an excerpt from Chapter 13, “Heavenly Tao” from the teachings Chuang Tzu. "The virtue of emperors and kings is to take the Heavens and the Earth as their Lord, to take Tao (the Way) and Te (morals) as their guiding principles, and to take non-action as their norm." "Those above must be without actions in order to use the world. Those below must take actions in order to be used by the world. This is the unchangeable principle." "'The virtue of emperors and kings corresponds with the Heavens and the Earth. 'This is the way to jump on the chariot of the Heavens and the Earth, harness all living things to it, and make use of the joint efforts of everyone." "In the transformations and growth of all things, every bud and feature has its proper form; and in this we have their gradual maturing and decay, the constant flow of transformation and change. Thus, since Heavens and Earth, which are most spirit-like, are distinguished as more honorable and less, and by precedence and sequence, how much more must we look for this in the way of men!

From the Rosicrucian Order's The Sanctuary of Self: on Mastership, Perfection, and Spirituality, Part 2 of 2

Chapter XXII SPIRITUALITY “A state of spirituality denotes conduct indicative of man’s spiritual nature. To live a spiritual life, then, is to be governed by aspirations, urges, and inclinations originating in the Divine self, and as expressed by the dictates of conscience. It is also the use of these higher powers and faculties of which man is aware. There are, therefore, certain noble virtues which are characterized as being spiritually endowed. Such virtues, if not practiced by all men, are at least known to them. A few of these are truth, justice, modesty, and mercy. These, of course, can be applied to daily life, its labors and its habits. If we accept the viewpoint that the noble virtues are the quintessence of spirituality – as well as that observance of such commandments as the various sacred works and the different religions expound – then a man who is discerned as displaying them is spiritual.”

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?

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

I believe you have taken such effectual measures, that you will not be surprised. I commend you for it, it is the one thing necessary: we must, nevertheless, always work at it, because not to advance, in the spiritual life, is to go back. But those who have the gale of the HOLY SPIRIT go forward even in sleep. If the vessel of our soul is still tossed with winds and storms, let us awake the LORD, who reposes in it, and He will quickly calm the sea.

The Sutra On The Original Vows And Merits Of The Medicine Master Lapis Lazuli Light Tathagata, Part 3 of 4

“At that time, the World Honored One entered a Samadhi called ‘Eliminating All the Suffering and Afflictions of Sentient Beings.’ Having entered that Samadhi, a brilliant Light shone forth from His usnisa (fleshy crown) as He uttered a great Dharani (mantra).” “As soon as the Medicine Buddha, in His radiance, had uttered this mantra, the entire earth shook and shone brilliant lights, curing the disease and eradicating the suffering of sentient beings, enabling them to enjoy peace and happiness. Manjusri, if people come across any man or woman suffering from illness, they should sincerely and frequently help that person bathe, cleanse, and rinse, then recite this mantra one hundred and eight times over his food, medicine, or water that is free from insects. Once the sick person has taken the food or drink, the illness and suffering will be eradicated.”

From the Holy Bible: The Book of Isaiah, Excerpts from Chapters 60-66, Part 1 of 2

Isaiah, son of Amoz, is one of the most celebrated ancient Jewish prophets, believed by scholars to have been a vegetarian. The book of Isaiah tells us that God will restore justice and righteousness to the people of Israel. The day of that judgment is called “the day of the Lord,” as God’s compassion will take the form of a new Messianic King. Christians believe that this refers to the coming of The Worshipped Lord Jesus Christ, and that through Christ’s suffering, humankind will fully receive salvation. Thus, the Lord’s new and righteous kingdom on Earth is the glorious ideal depicted in the book of Prophet Isaiah.

Fill Life with Love and Wonder: Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 3 May 18 , 1999, Bulgaria

There are two ways to avoid unpleasant outcomes: first, keep the Ten Commandments for the physical, and know God for the spiritual. If you know that God inside. Then, of course, Hes takes care of everything. And even if you have to go through some compensation, it will be minimized to the almost non-existent extent, or it might be like in a dream. There are dangers on the spiritual road as well as our worldly road. Therefore, we need a guide who has been traveling this road to lead us and to tell us where to avoid problems. If you follow all the instructions prescribed, we guarantee your safety back to the house of our Father.

From the Rosicrucian Order's The Sanctuary of Self: on Mastership, Perfection, and Spirituality, Part 1 of 2

The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis, also known as the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, is a worldwide cultural, educational, and philosophical organization that is perpetuating the profound and practical teachings of the Rosicrucians. Today, in honor of the birthday of the esteemed Harvey Spencer Lewis, who founded the Rosicrucian Order in 1915, we will present excerpts on “Mastership and Perfection” from the book “The Sanctuary of Self,” written by his son, Ralph M. Lewis. "Mastership is not only the ability to advocate a way or procedure by which something is to be done. It also consists of the personal power of accomplishment. …Mystic mastership or mastery of mysticism is therefore the finding of the God Power within oneself. Its practical application consists of learning the usage, to the fullest extent, of these powers and forces with which the Cosmic has endowed us."

From the Essene Gospel of Peace: Selection from Book One, Part 1 of 2

The Essenes were often found in communities where meditation or prayer was an important part of daily life that was dedicated to God. With respect for all forms of life, the Essenes’ diet was purely vegetarian. Today we present the ancient wisdom of the Essenes with an excerpt from the Essene Gospel of Peace, Book One. “Master, heal us, that we too may be made strong, and need abide no longer in our misery.” And Jesus answered, “Your Mother is in you, and you in Her. …when you come to know Her and Her Kingdom; if you receive your Mother’s angels and if you do Her laws. I tell you truly, he who does these things shall never see disease.”

Selection from Theosophy's Sacred Teachings: “The Voice of the Silence,” Fragment II - The Two Paths, Part 2 of 2

Be humble, if thou would attain to Wisdom. Be humbler still, when Wisdom thou have mastered. Be like the Ocean which receives all streams and rivers. The Ocean’s might calm remains unmoved; it feels them not. Restrain by thy Divine thy lower Self. Restrain by the Eternal the Divine. Aye, great is he, who is the slayer of desire. Still greater he, in whom the Self Divine has slain the very knowledge of desire. Guard thou the Lower lest it soil the Higher. The way to final freedom is within thy “Self.” That way begins and ends outside of Self. Unpraised by men and humble is the mother of all Rivers, in Tirthika’s (Brahman ascetics) proud sight; empty the human form though filled with Amrita’s (immortality) sweet waters, in the sight of fools. In addition, the birth-place of the sacred rivers is the sacred land, and he who Wisdom has, is honored by all men.
