Selection from the Holy Kitab-I-Aqdas of the Baha’i Faith: Paragraphs 112-150, Part 2 of 2

Selection from the Holy Kitab-I-Aqdas of the Baha’i Faith: Paragraphs 112-150, Part 2 of 2

Let none, in this Day, hold fast to anything save that which hath been manifested in this Revelation. Such is the admonition of the Lord, before and hereafter—an admonition. Naught shall avail you in this Day but God, nor is there any refuge to flee to save Him. Wish not for others what ye wish not for yourselves. “Lay not upon your souls that which will weary them and weigh them down, but rather what will lighten and uplift them, so that they may soar on the wings on the Divine verses towards the Dawning-place of His manifest signs; this will draw you nearer to God, did ye but comprehend.”

Say: Blessed is he who, at the hour of dawn, centering his thoughts on God, occupied with His remembrance, and supplicating His forgiveness, directeth his steps to the Mashriqu’l-Adhkár, and entering therein, seateth himself silence to listen to the verses of God, the Sovereign, the Mighty, the All-Praised. These verses draw hearts that are pure unto those spiritual worlds that can neither be expressed in words nor intimated by allusion. The liberty that profiteth you is to be found nowhere except in complete servitude unto God, the Eternal Truth.

It’s Not Too Late to Get Enlightenment, Questions and Answers, Part 4 of 5 Nov 26, 1994, Thailand

Because the real transmission doesn’t need language - and then you will be awakened. Your spiritual wisdom opens and you might see the (inner Heavenly) Light and hear the Self-Nature. Like the Buddha said, “Listen inward, listen to your Self-Nature.” Or, like in the Bible, it says, “the Word of God.” These Lights from Heaven or from Buddha’s Land and the melodious teaching from Heaven or from Buddha’s Land, it is our own Self-Nature, and that will make us wiser and freer each day. And then, more and more we will rely on our Self-Nature and our Self Master inside, and the outside Master is only standing by and helping.

Upgrade Yourself into a Very Noble, Selfless Being, P 1/2

00:34:54

Upgrade Yourself into a Very Noble, Selfless Being, P 1/2

You have to train to be first good and able, so that maybe one day we can help someone else. Don’t always sit there like a baby waiting for mama. Even if you have been spoiled, you have to prepare to upgrade yourself into a very, very noble being. Self-sacrifice being. But I don’t ask you to do anything drastic. Self-sacrificing talking about that is a laughable thing. This is too weak for the word. I mean you have to also try to adjust to the situation. Try to help others instead.

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.

Poems by Rumi: ”Here I Am” and ”Tales of the Reed Pipe”

00:11:33

Poems by Rumi: ”Here I Am” and ”Tales of the Reed Pipe”

The lament of the reed-flute is a symbol of the soul’s sorrow at being parted from the Diving Beloved. Listen to this reed, how it makes complaint, telling a tale of separation; I want a breast torn asunder by severance, so that I may fully declare the agony of yearning. Everyone who is sundered far from his origin longs to recapture the time when he was reunited with it. In every company I have poured forth my lament, I have consorted alike with the miserable and the happy. My secret indeed is not remote from my lament, but eye and ear lack the light to perceive it. Only the senseless is intimate with the mysteries of this Sense.

Selection from Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: Book I & II, Part 2 of 2

The pain-bearing obstructions are- ignorance, egoism, attachment, aversion, and clinging to life. Restraint (Yama), binding observance (Niyama), posture (Asana), regulation of breath (Pranayama), abstraction and sense-withdrawal (Pratya hara), concentration (Dharana), contemplation (Dhyana) and perfect meditative absorption (Samadhi) are the eight limbs of yoga. Of these, non-violence (Ahimsa), non-stealing (Asteya), continence (Brahmacharya) and non-possessiveness (Aparigraha) are the five forms of restraint (Yamas). These, unbroken by time, place, purpose, and caste, are (universal) great vows. Pratyahara, abstraction or dissociation, is the disjoining of the sense-organs from their respective objects, assuming, as it were, the nature of the mind itself. Thence comes supreme control of the senses.

It’s Not Too Late to Get Enlightenment, Part 2 of 5 Nov 26, 1994, Thailand

Spiritual practice concerns the mind, not the body. After the mind is controlled, the body is controlled. That’s why we do not emphasize to people that they have to practice the position first, but we emphasize that we will give you the extra controlling power, so that at the beginning of your practice you can immediately calm your mind and have an immediate result of enlightenment. We help you to unlock your controlling power from the higher source of the Buddha Nature, or what we call the Kingdom of God in different religions. The secret is we know the way. If we don’t know the secret, it doesn’t matter how hard we try, how sincere we are, we will not have results, as we wanted.

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

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.

The Only Criminal is Ignorance: Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 3 May 28, 1999, Prague, Czech Republic

The purpose of life is to know God. Ignorance is the only thing to be blamed for all these bad things that happen to us. Ignorance, not knowing God, that’s the only criminal in this world and any other world. Because if we are enlightened, if we know God, we will be so happy, so blissful that we could never do anything wrong, or very less likely to do things wrong because we are enlightened, we are wise, we know what’s right and what’s wrong. So the best thing I can offer you is enlightenment, more than gold, more than diamonds, more than anything that is so-called best in this world.

Leading All to Be Vegan Will Bring Immense Merits part 1 (1/2)

If any leader is vegetarian, they should be open about it and encourage everyone to be vegetarian, too. This way they will earn immense merit, and they can also protect this earth so that their own relatives, friends, and children can continue to live on this planet in a clean atmosphere. We don’t leave the Earth populated and full of toxic air for our children.

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.

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 tales 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.

The Baha’i Faith’s ”Gems of Divine Mysteries”: Paragraphs 25-33

The essence of the divine mysteries in the journeys of ascent set forth for those who long to draw nigh unto God, the Almighty, the Ever-Forgiving – blessed be the righteous that drink from these crystal streams! HE IS THE EXALTED, THE MOST HIGH! Veiled as they remain within their own selves, the generality of the people have failed to perceive the sweet accents of holiness, inhale the fragrance of mercy, or seek guidance, as bidden by God, from those who are the custodians of the Scriptures. He proclaims, and His word, verily, is the truth: “Ask ye, therefore, of them that have custody of the Scriptures, if ye know it not.” Nay rather, they have turned aside from them and followed instead the Sámirí of their own idle fancies.

From the Nag Hammadi Holy Scriptures: Selection from the Gospel of Truth, Part 1 of 2

So that whoever has acquaintance is from Above: and if called, hears, replies, and turns to the One who is calling; and goes to Him. And he knows how that One is called. Having acquaintance, that person does the will of the One who has called; wishes to please Him; and gains repose. One’s name becomes one’s own. Those who gain acquaintance in this way know from where they have come and to where they will go; they know in the manner of man who, after having been intoxicated, has recovered from his intoxication, having returned into Himself.

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.

That’s the trouble with our world. Everyone is so humble and so shy 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.

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.

Now Is the Trend for Peace

Time is different now. We should always be good, peaceful together. We’re more civilized now and it’s the 21st century already. Fighting is I think of a period of Stone Age or Ice Age. We are in a new age now, Golden Age. Any country fighting, anybody killing, anybody in war, it feels to me like a very backward kind of action. In the old time, people lived in caves and went hunting for food or killing each other for food. But now we should not do similar things like that anymore.
