Selection from Signs of Agni Yoga: Heart – by Spiritual Messengers Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 2 of 2

“The heart may be the focus, but it is the least egocentric of all. Not egoism dwells in the heart, but a feeling that embraces all humanity. Only reasoning shrouds the heart in a web of egocentricity. Kind-heartedness is measured not so much by good actions, which may arise from so many different causes, but by one’s inner kindliness, which kindles the light that shines in the darkness. In this sense, the heart is truly a transnational organ. If for us light is a symbol of the aura, its parent will be the heart. How necessary it is that one learns to feel the heart not as one’s own, but as something that belongs to the entire world. Only through this feeling can a person begin to liberate himself from egoism, while preserving the individual nature of his accumulations.” “Our Hand will not get tired of extending the saving thread to the heart. Who can justly say that We were late in offering help? But We can cite many occasions when Our Messenger was frozen by people’s heartlessness. It is so hard to bring into action the potential of the heart. One must manifest a flight over the abyss, as if soaring from the last shore into the Infinite. How sacred is the courage of selflessness, which opens up the heart!” “Can you picture what a humanity with healthy bodies and uncultured hearts would be like? It is difficult even to imagine such a feast of darkness. All the illnesses and infirmities in the world are unable to restrain the rampant madness of the heart. Truly, so long as the heart remains unenlightened, illnesses and infirmities will not be eliminated; were that not the case, the frenzy of the heart coupled with powerful bodies would horrify the worlds.” “Through even the slightest purification of the human heart one can derive a cascade of Blessings. Nowadays, it is all right to act, if cautiously, but only in cases where the heart has not decayed. You should not get depressed about it, but you need to know that the darkness has intensified and many hearts are putrefying. The significance of the heart is an old truth, but this truth has never been so needed as now.”

Expressions of Life: A Collection of Poetry by Abu Al- ‘Ala’ Al-Ma’arri (vegan), Part 1 of 2

Abu Al- ‘Ala’ Al-Ma’arri is considered as one of the greatest classical Arab poets. Born near Aleppo, Syria in 973, Al-Ma’arri, also a writer and philosopher, came from a notable family of the famous ancient tribal confederation called Tanūkh. There, he was highly respected as a scholar as he continued his dedication to writing, collaborated with others and attracted many local students, despite his ascetic and secluded way of life. Al-Ma’arri is remembered for his ideals for social justice, equality between people, and freedom of thought and expression. He saw life mostly as a burden to the soul, an experience for which one needs to learn reason in order to distinguish the truth from the false. He believed in God, but not in human-established religions, as he understood them. His collections of poetry include “The Tinder Spark” (“Saqt Az-Zand”) and “Unnecessary Necessity” (“Luzūm Mā Lam Yalzam”). Al-Ma’arri is thought to have influenced Dante Alighieri’s famous poem “Divine Comedy,” as well as the Persian philosopher and poet Omar Khayyam, and many medieval writers of the West. Abu Al- ‘Ala’ Al-Ma’arri was a compassionate vegan, describing his decision of saving and respecting the lives of the gentle animals in a poem called “I No Longer Steal from Nature.” “The body, which gives you during life a form, Is but your vase: be not deceived, my soul! Cheap is the bowl for storing honey in, But precious for the contents of the bowl.” “You are diseased in understanding and religion. Come to me, that you may hear something of sound truth. Do not unjustly eat fish the water has given up, And do not desire as food the flesh of slaughtered animals, Or the white milk of mothers who intended its pure draught for their young, not noble ladies. And do not grieve the unsuspecting birds by taking eggs; for injustice is the worst of crimes. And spare the honey which the bees get industriously from the flowers of fragrant plants; For they did not store it that it might belong to others, Nor did they gather it for bounty and gifts. I washed my hands of all this; and wish that I Perceived my way before my hair went gray!” “But some hope a divine leader with prophetic voice Will rise amid the gazing silent ranks. An idle thought! There’s none to lead but reason, To point the morning and the evening ways.”

“I think our world is not a place of rest, But where a man may take his little ease, Until the landlord whom he never sees Gives that apartment to another guest.” “Birth I chose not, nor old age, nor to live: What the past grudged me shall the present give? Here must I stay, by fates’ two hands constrained, And not leave until my leaving is ordained. You who would guide me out of dark illusion, Yo

The Loving Testament of Saint John of Rila (vegan), Part 1 of 2

00:17:10

The Loving Testament of Saint John of Rila (vegan), Part 1 of 2

Saint John of Rila, also known as Saint Ivan Rilski, was the first Bulgarian hermit, who was revered as a saint while still living. Today he is honored as the patron saint of the Bulgarians, and is regarded as one of the most important holy figures in the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. Born around the year 876, in Shrino, Saint John of Rila, became a priest at the age of 25. He accepted the path of monkhood and secluded himself in isolated areas. It is said that Saint John of Rila performed many miracles in order to help the people. This extraordinary power brought him a lot of fame and numerous followers. Saint John of Rila also had disciples, to whom he lovingly bequeathed a Testament (Zavet) of wisdom. The Testament was a message of moral and spiritual guidance for his successors and the Bulgarian people. Today, we have the chance to contemplate on the first part of the Testament of Saint John of Rila. “First of all, I bequeath to you the obligation to preserve the holy faith immaculate and unaffected by any false teaching, just as we received it from the holy Fathers, without ‘being led away with diverse and strange teachings.’ Hold fast and keep the traditions you have heard and seen from me. Do not deviate either to the right, or to the left, but walk along the royal road. Keep yourselves carefully away from worldly fascinations and always remember why you have come out of the world, and why you have despised it and worldly things.” “Now again, keep yourselves away from the avaricious snake, ‘for the love of money is the root of all evil,’ according to the apostle, who calls it a second idolatry. Because for the hermit wealth consists not in silver and gold, but in perfect poverty, in the denial of his personal will, and in lofty humbleness. I am not telling you this as my commandments, but [I am] recalling for you the commandments of Christ. For He told His holy disciples and through them everybody who had renounced the world: ‘Take no gold, nor silver, nor a bag, nor copper in your belts’ and so on.” “But seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.” “As the grace of the Holy Spirit brought you together, so must you endeavor to live with one heart and one mind and one spirit, directing your eyes only towards the eternal reward, which God has prepared for those who have loved Him.”

The Loving Testament of Saint John of Rila (vegan), Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with the second part of the profound insights passed down through the Testament (Zavet) of Saint John of Rila, as a caring legacy for his followers, written shortly before his death. His message is one of unity, kept by the peace of God, in Whom one finds the source of all wisdom and enlightenment. “The spirit-speaking Prophet David glorified it saying: ‘See now what is so good and so pleasant as for brethren to dwell together in unity!’” “But also our good Master Lord God Jesus Christ, does He not say to us Himself, by His immaculate lips: ‘Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them’?” “That is why, children, as the Holy Spirit through the mouth of the Prophet glorifies the communal life, do you not neglect it either, but on the contrary, confirm it and be like ‘one body in the Lord,’ which has different members. Some of them form, however, the head which governs, others the feet which toil and bear, so that there is formed from all a single spiritual body in the Lord, created with a single mind and logical spirit, and directed by spiritual reasoning, in no wise having divisions. When such a dwelling and life in God is arranged, then He Himself will be in the midst of you, governing you invisibly.” “Do not seek the first place and authority, but remember those who have said: ‘If one would be first, he must be last of all, and servant of all.’” “For He prays to God the Father for His holy disciples to be united, that is, of one mind — they themselves and everybody who believes in Him through them, and says as follows: ‘Holy Father, keep them in Thy name that they may be one, as we are.’” “For He said to His disciples, ‘Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you.’ For such is this peace of Christ, children, that again He speaks, saying, ‘Not as the world gives, do I give to you.’ But this peace of Christ surpasses every mind. This is the peace, about which the Prophet talks: ‘And His peace has no bounds.’” “Living together for the Lord’s sake and bearing the burdens of one another, do not neglect those who live in solitude and ‘wandering over deserts and in mountains, and in dens, and in caves of the earth, of whom the world was not worthy,’ but supply them as much as you can, in order to hold them as your petitioners before God, for the prayer of the pious may achieve much.”

Selections from “Pioneers of the Soul” by Hilda Charlton (vegetarian): Chapter 2 – The Real You, Part 1 of 2

Selections from “Pioneers of the Soul” by Hilda Charlton (vegetarian): Chapter 2 – The Real You, Part 1 of 2

Hilda Charlton’s early life was spent in the United Kingdom and the United States. As a young adult, Hilda began performing professionally as a classical and sacred dancer. She said that performances such as the “Dance of Angkor Wat” were intended to help awaken the Divine in others. In response to a yearning for her own deeper connection with God, Hilda Charlton traveled to India where she meditated and studied with Masters such as Bhagavan Nityananda and Jagadguru Sathya Sai Baba. “Pioneers of the Soul” is a collection of Hilda Charlton’s lectures delivered in New York City at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Their topics included upcoming changes on our planet, the power of the Divine, tips for spiritual development, and more. We now share with you an excerpt from “Chapter Two – The Real You” in “Pioneers of the Soul.” “‘Hurt not the Earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.’” “That’s what it says in Genesis. The world is better than good. It is only people that are the trouble, so let’s change the world back to what God intended by changing our little bit — ourselves. We are responsible for our little bit. That is your duty in this life; that is why you came down at this very, very special time, as the changes lead into the millennium.” “How can I awaken you deep inside to the fact that within a mere twelve or thirteen years, not one item on the Earth will be the same — not education, not economics, not medicine, nothing will be the same, nothing in the world. I plead with you, let us start the new life expected of us right now — a life of unconditional love and trust.” “Everyone who takes Their teachings seriously — and I repeat this in the name of Count Saint Germaine and Master Hilarion — everyone who takes Their teachings seriously is being watched and helped by them in these hard times. Beloveds, you can’t beat this game down here. You can’t beat it your own way, particularly at this time, because God has written a script and is now having auditions for those who are to play the parts. So start practicing and rehearsing your parts and be adept at God’s way of acting out life.”

Selections from “Pioneers of the Soul” by Hilda Charlton (vegetarian): Chapter 2 – The Real You, Part 2 of 2

“Make God your goal. Do all the other things you have to do and be grateful for any job you have, but let God be foremost in your mind.” “You have been brainwashed with labels from birth, and now it is time to think for yourself, from deep in your intuition, about what truth is. Jesus left us a gift of freedom, and we are made new by accepting this gift of the Spirit. It is so simple. We give up our little ego’s opinions in exchange for the great spiritual truths, the truths that have existed in all the ages since the world was created. We let in the light of truth, and we are free. Know the truth and it shall set you free from the bondage of your self.” “What is that truth? The one and only truth is that we were created perfect and perfect shall we be.” “It is time for all of us to be reborn back into the consciousness of God, back into this great consciousness which is like a great universe. Let us step over all the pebbles and the dirt and the muck we’ve put here and walk back into the consciousness of God. Let’s say you’re in the consciousness of God, and then you get petty and complain, ‘That person said this about me.’ You’re right out again, out of the Garden of Eden. So you say, ‘Oh no. I’m out again.’ Nothing doing! Cut! Cut that thought. Cut! And back in you go, into the consciousness of God, and say, ‘That person must’ve had a bad time to be so mean. I will send that person unconditional love.’ It’s as simple as that. We have to keep unconditional love all the time.” “As quickly as the negative thought comes, say, ‘Cut.’ Go back with a good thought, and you’re in the consciousness of God again. You’re in attunement and you’re in safety, no matter what happens around you.”

Probation on the Path of Discipleship – by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

00:13:13

Probation on the Path of Discipleship – by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Born in 1861, Dr. Rudolf Steiner was a great Austrian polymath, philosopher and scientist who made influential contributions in the fields of education, science, spirituality and medicine. He is perhaps best known for pioneering the holistic educational methods for the Waldorf schools. An eloquent public speaker and gifted writer, he gave over 6,000 lectures in his lifetime and gained recognition as a literary critic. His writings cover a wide range of subjects, and he published more than 25 books, including “Mysticism at the Dawn of the Modern Age,” “The Way of Initiation,” and “Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path: The Philosophy of Freedom.” He developed and taught an esoteric spiritual philosophy called anthroposophy, based on “the science of the spirit.” Today, we will read a passage from the chapter “Path of Discipleship,” in Dr. Rudolf Steiner’s book, “The Way of Initiation.” “This calm contemplation must become a necessity to the student. He is plunged completely into a world of thought, and must develop an earnest desire for calm thinking. He must learn to love the in-pouring of the spirit. Then he will learn to regard this thought-world and its thought-forms as more real than the every-day things which surround him, and he begins to deal with thoughts as with things existing in space.” “He begins to hear voices through the silence. Formerly his ear was the only organ of hearing; now he can listen with his soul. An inner language and an inner voice are revealed to him. It is a moment of supremest ecstasy to the student when this experience first comes to him. An inner light floods the whole external world for him, and he is ‘born anew.’ Through his being passes a current from a divine world, bringing with it divine bliss.” “Those who, by means of meditation, rise to that which unites man with spirit, are bringing to life within them the eternal element which is not limited by birth nor death. Only those who have had no experience for themselves can doubt the existence of this eternal element. Thus, meditation becomes the way by which man also attains to the recognition and contemplation of his eternal, indestructible, essential being. And only through meditation can one attain to such a view of life. Gnosis and Theosophy tell of the eternal nature of this essential being, and of its reincarnation. The question is often asked: ‘Why does a man know nothing of those experiences which lie beyond the borders of birth and death?’ Not thus should we ask, but rather: ‘How may we attain to such knowledge?’ The entrance to the Path is opened by right meditation. This alone can revive the memory of events that lie beyond the borders of birth and death.”

Probation on the Path of Discipleship – by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with a reading from Dr. Rudolf Steiner’s book “The Way of Initiation,” with excerpts from chapters “The Path of Discipleship” and “Probation.” Here the Austrian philosopher gives the steps needed for the occult student to fulfil a greater spiritual cultivation. “There are, according to esoteric teachers, three steps by which the goal may be attained: 1. Probation. This develops the spiritual senses. 2. Enlightenment. This kindles the spiritual light. 3. Initiation. This establishes intercourse with the higher spiritual beings. The following teachings proceed from a secret tradition, but precise information concerning its nature and its name cannot be given at present. They refer to the three steps which, in the school of this tradition, lead to a certain degree of initiation. But here we shall find only so much of this tradition as may be openly declared. These teachings are extracted from a much deeper and more secret doctrine. In the occult schools themselves a definite course of instruction is followed, and in addition to this there are certain practices which enable the souls of men to attain a conscious intercourse with the spiritual world.” “The beginning of this cultivation is made by directing the attention of the soul to certain events in the world that surrounds us. Such events are the germinating, expanding, and flourishing of life in its myriad forms on the one hand, and, on the other, the fading, decaying, and passing out of life from all things so far as perceptible to the ordinary senses. Wherever we turn our eyes we can observe these things happening simultaneously, and everywhere they naturally evoke in men thoughts and feelings. But under ordinary circumstances a man fails to grasp the importance of these sensations. He hurries on too quickly from impression to impression.” “Yet it must not be thought that we can make much progress if we blunt our senses to the world. For, one must first contemplate these objects as keenly and precisely as possible, and then give up to the sensations that result, and the thoughts that arise within the soul. What is most important is, that one should direct the attention, with perfect inner balance, upon both of these phenomena. If one obtains the necessary quiet and surrenders himself to that which arises in the soul, he will, in due time, experience many wonderful thoughts and feelings, unknown to him before.”

Understanding the Mayan Calendar: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 1 of 3

Understanding the Mayan Calendar: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 1 of 3

The ancient Mayan civilization, known to be one of the most technologically advanced of its time, originated in Central America and southern Mexico several thousand years ago. The Mayan people were highly developed in many fields, such as a hieroglyphic writing system, mathematics, sculpture, and medicine. In “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012,” author Don Carlos Barrios provides us with an account of Mayan tradition that was passed to him by his respected Mayan spiritual mentors. The book covers different aspects of Mayan life and spirituality, including the Mayan cosmo-vision, the Cholq'ij calendar and prophecies of the Mayan people. According to the author, the Maya have 20 different types of calendars. One is the fixed Ab’. “This calendar consists of 360 days plus another five known as the Wayeb, a time for introspection, meditation, and resolutions. During these five days known as the Wayeb, people would shut themselves in their home. They would fast and drink only a beverage made of maize and dedicate their whole time to go back and recapitulate their life. ... This is a very important practice to stay well and in complete harmony with ourselves and with the world that surrounds us.” “Another widely used calendar in the Mayan culture is the Cholq’ij. Mayan Elder Don Pascual explains. The Cholq’ij is mathematically perfect; changes never have been and never will be made to it. Its precision is the result of centuries of observation and study by great Mayan astronomers, astrologers, mathematicians, and wise men. It is the perfect instrument for understanding our purpose in the marvel that is life. It is the best gift our Grandfathers could have left us. -- Don Pascual, Mayan Mam sage.” “Our primary mission is to keep a record of time and count the cycles because they contain the history of the world. Every cycle or fold in the infinite spiral of the great Kan [macrospiral] is an eternal return that results in similar events in the following cycle. This is what makes it possible for us to know our destiny: just as we know the path that the Sun and Grandmother Moon trace as they come and go day after day, so do we as humans come and go. This is the way in which we know how to cast a fortune and predict events.”

Understanding the Mayan Calendar: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 2 of 3

In today’s program, we are going to explore the meaning of the Mayan signs governing each day of the Mayan months. Don Carlos Barrios wrote the following about the significance of the 13 months in the Cholq’ij calendar: The 13 numbers are conceptualized similar to a pyramid. From numbers 1 to 7 we are climbing with much effort. At the number 8 we are in a position where perfect harmony is possible and on the top of the pyramid, and 9 to 13 is directed downhill, creating more ease with the energies, as they are no longer so forceful in developing us. This varies slightly between men and women: for men, 8 is considered to be the top of the pyramid as they are considered to typically be more balanced physically and have to struggle more to reach the spiritual levels than women, where 9 is the top of the pyramid, where they are typically thought to be slightly less stable in the physical realms but have an easier time accessing the spiritual. “Our Grandfathers warn that this ancient tradition is not to be treated as a curiosity, not to be indulged in as a form of entertainment, and not to be used selfishly. Instead, it should guide our growth on all levels - physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual. Mayan life and spirituality are built on understanding and using the following signs, which governed the Classic Mayan world and have been preserved by our traditional Elders. On August 17, 1992, the planet entered a new cycle, one of comprehension, wisdom, and harmony. This new cycle is a time of great change in the world’s social and economic structure. For this reason, the doors of Mayan wisdom are being opened to humankind. Now that the period of darkness has ended, the Elders have resolved to publish the Mayan signs as an instrumental way of understanding our true purpose. The hope is that everyone will orient their life based on their sign and follow Saq B’e (the White Road). Respect for historical accuracy is one of the strictest and most important rules: not a single word is ever added to or removed from our texts or oral tradition. This book (The Book of Destiny) is a commitment to reality - that is, to our Grandfathers’ vision. Although as human beings we have many limitations, we can find a way to overcome them in the depth and transcendence to be found in these signs. The task of using the signs in one’s personal life, however, requires a real desire to conform to a new way of life that balances technology and harmony with nature.”

The Foundation of Creation: From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

The Book of the Secrets of Enoch, also known as the Second Book of Enoch, or Old Bulgarian Enoch, is an ancient religious text, which describes the intensity of the Antediluvian (pre-Flood) time period. The Book of Enoch contains unique material on why the Great Flood was morally necessary, why some angels fell from Heaven, and prophetic revelations of the thousand-year reign of the Messiah. But the main message is one of hope, that God will be the guiding Light for those who are righteous. Chapter 21 “And the Cherubim (angelic beings) and seraphim (Heavenly beings) standing about the throne, the six-winged and many-eyed ones do not depart, standing before the Lord’s face doing His will, and cover His whole throne, singing with gentle voice before the Lord’s face: ‘Holy, holy, holy, Lord Ruler of Sabaoth, Heavens and Earth are full of Your glory.’” Chapter 22 “On the tenth Heaven (which is called) Aravoth, I saw the appearance of the Lord’s face, like iron made to glow in fire, and brought out, emitting sparks, and it burns.” Chapter 23 “And he was telling me all the works of Heaven, Earth and sea, and all the elements, their passages and goings, and the thunderings of the thunders, the Sun and Moon, the goings and changes of the stars, the seasons, years, days, and hours, the risings of the wind, the numbers of the angels, and the formation of their songs, and all human things, the tongue of every human song and life, the commandments, instructions, and sweet-voiced singings, and all things that it is fitting to learn.” “And Pravuil told me: ‘All the things that I have told you, we have written. Sit and write all the souls of mankind, however many of them are born, and the places prepared for them to eternity; for all souls are prepared to eternity, before the formation of the world.’”

We now continue with the amazing record from chapters 26 to 30 in “The Book of the Secrets of Enoch,” depicting the story of creation as told by God to Enoch, in which the world’s foundation takes its dual nature, known to us to this day. Chapter 26 “And I summoned the very lowest a second time, and said: ‘Let Archas come forth hard,’ and he came forth hard from the invisible (spiritual). And Archas came forth, hard, heavy, and very red.” Chapter 27 “And I commanded that there should be taken from light and darkness, and I said: ‘Be thick,’ and it became thus, and I spread it out with the light, and it became water, and I spread it out over the darkness, below the light, and then I made firm the waters, that is to say the bottomless, and I made foundation of light around the water, and created seven circles from inside, and imaged (the water) like crystal wet and dry, that is to say like glass, (and) the waters and the other elements - and I showed each one of them its road, and the seven stars, each one of them in its heaven, that they go thus, and I saw that it was good.” Chapter 28 “And then I made firm the Heavenly circle, and (made) that the lower water, which is under Heaven collect itself together, into one whole, and that the chaos become dry, and it became so. ” “Out of the waves I created rock hard and big, and from the rock I piled up the dry, and the dry I called earth, and the midst of the earth I called abyss, that is to say the bottomless, I collected the sea in one place and bound it together with a yoke.” “And I said to the sea: ‘Behold, I give you (your) eternal limits, and you shalt not break loose from your component parts.’ Thus I made fast the firmament. This day I called me the first-created [Sunday].”

Aspects of the Spiritual Life: Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Aspects of the Spiritual Life: Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

The Reverend Thomas Merton, an important Catholic mystic and spiritual thinker, was born in 1915, to a New Zealand father and an American mother. The many life situations he encountered in his youth led him to explore religion and spirituality and eventually devote his life to God by becoming a monk, and later a deacon, at the Abbey of Gethsemani, a part of the Order of Trappists, in Kentucky, USA. Today, we will tap in to the Reverend Merton’s deep thoughts, as expressed in his book entitled, “Thoughts in Solitude,” where he elaborates on aspects of our lives related to the greater spiritual reality, and how that co-dependence can be of a benefit to us. “The death by which we enter into life is not an escape from reality but a complete gift of ourselves which involves a total commitment to reality. It begins by renouncing the illusory reality which created things acquire when they are seen only in their relation to our own selfish interests.” “We begin our renouncement of creatures by standing back from them and looking at them as they are in themselves. In so doing we penetrate their reality, their actuality, their truth, which cannot be discovered until we get them outside ourselves and stand back so that they are seen in perspective. We cannot see things in perspective until we cease to hug them to our own bosom. When we let go of them, we begin to appreciate them as they really are. Only then can we begin to see God in them. Not until we find Him in them, can we start on the road of dark contemplation at whose end we shall be able to find them in Him.” “The Desert Fathers (early Christian hermits who lived in the desert) believed that the wilderness had been created as supremely valuable in the eyes of God precisely because it had no value to men. The wasteland was the land that could never be wasted by men because it offered them nothing. There was nothing to attract them. There was nothing to exploit. The desert was the region in which the Chosen People had wandered for forty years, cared for by God alone. They could have reached the Promised Land in a few months if they had travelled directly to it. God’s plan was that they should learn to love Him in the wilderness and that they should always look back upon the time in the desert as the idyllic time of their life with Him alone.”

Aspects of the Spiritual Life: Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with Chapter II from the Reverend Thomas Merton’s book, “Thoughts in Solitude,” learning more about the free choice to do good or evil, the importance of keeping and expanding one’s human sensitivity, as well as the nature of wholeness of the spiritual life. “The good man comes from God and returns to Him. He starts with the gift of being and with the capacities God has given him. He reaches the age of reason and begins to make choices. The character of his choices is already to a great extent influenced by what has happened to him in the first years of his life, and by the temperament with which he is born. It will continue to be influenced by the actions of others around him, by the events of the world in which he lives, by the character of his society. Nevertheless, it remains fundamentally free.” “A saint is a perfect man. He is a temple of the Holy Ghost. He reproduces, in his own individual way, something of the balance and perfection and order that we find in the Human character of Jesus, the soul of Jesus, hypostatically united to the Word of God, enjoyed at the same time and without conflict the Clear Vision of God and the most common and simple and intimate of our human emotions — affection, pity and sorrow, happiness, pleasure, or grief; indignation and wonder; weariness, anxiety and fear; consolation and peace.” “If we are without human feelings, we cannot love God in the way in which we are meant to love Him — as men. If we do not respond to human affection, we cannot be loved by God in the way in which He has willed to love us — with the Heart of the Man, Jesus Who is God, the Son of God, and the anointed Christ.” “Nor does the spiritual life exclude thought and feeling. It needs both. It is not just a life concentrated at the ‘high point’ of the soul, a life from which the mind and the imagination and the body are excluded. If it were so, few people could lead it. And again, if that were the spiritual life, it would not be a life at all. If man is to live, he must be all alive, body, soul, mind, heart, spirit. Everything must be elevated and transformed by the action of God, in love and faith.”

Understanding the Mayan Calendar: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 3 of 3

Understanding the Mayan Calendar: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 3 of 3

As Don Carlos Barrios explains in the following introductory excerpt, the time has come to share this ancient wisdom. Here is an Energy Table containing all 260 energies found in the sacred Cholq’ij calendar. This is a tool to help us find our Mayan sign. In each row, there is a sign for the 20 days in each month; and in each of the columns, we can find 13 forces, representing 13 months. Here is a Calendar Table, which begins on the first day of 1900 and ends on December 21, 2012, because the Mayan Long Count calendar ended on that day. Symbols are provided for each 13-day cycle. So what we need to do is to: “...Find the year you were born and then look down to find the preceding date closest to your birthday. On the right is the corresponding Mayan date. Write this down. Now turn back to the Energy Table and find the name of the sign on the left and the corresponding number along that row in the cells to the right.” “The energy and information in each day’s sign, both positive and negative according to the different stages of life, is used to guide people, help them find their purpose, indicate aspects that will allow them to achieve this goal, and thus shape their destiny. The relationship of the fixed or mobile cycles of change that govern people must also be kept in mind. Through a person’s sign, we can establish the abilities, gifts, spiritual qualities, or paranormal properties that person possesses and outline the places or energy centers that will help him or her develop. The practice of following Mayan signs enabled the traditional Classic Mayan world to be a harmonious civilization. No one lived in opposition to their own energies and destiny. Everyone respected each other because they knew they were all part of an evolutionary whole in the cosmic plan. The mandate that each person was born with was honored.” “No one labored at anything other than what they were born to do as indicated in their sign. Everyone therefore grew in a unified and enriching manner, completely in tune with their own makeup and with Mother Nature. It offers us the opportunity to become self-realized according to our individual capabilities, to increase our understanding of ourselves, and to relate to the energies that manifest each day. A more enlightened humanity is anxious to achieve real, conscious growth.”

Practice What You Believe: Faith Panel on the Relationship between Religion and Veganism, Part 1 of 4

Practice What You Believe: Faith Panel on the Relationship between Religion and Veganism, Part 1 of 4

On October 27, 2019, a discussion titled “Faith Panel on the Relationship between Religion and Veganism” which took place in London, England, explored the interrelations between spiritual beliefs and cruelty-free, plant-based living. It was organized as part of London’s VegFestUK, one of the biggest annual vegan festivals in Great Britain, dedicated to celebrating, expanding and relishing with gusto the life-affirming vegan trend. Each of the individuals in this respectable group of advocates reached the conclusion that being vegan is an essential aspect of following their respective holy scriptures. Moreover, it is the only way to truly live in harmony with the spiritual values of virtue and compassion. These panel members discuss how they came to realize that our concern for the welfare of animals lies at the very heart of any religious belief and thus should ideally be a top priority for any person of faith. “I’d say that veganism and Judaism more than correlate. I’d say that they go hand-in-hand. And that’s what as an organization, the ‘Jewish Vegetarian Society,’ soon to be renamed with ‘vegan’ in the title, is trying to achieve.” “And I’ve got one quote from the Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon Him. It says, ‘A good deed done to an animal is like a good deed done to a human being, while an act of cruelty to an animal is as bad as cruelty to a human being.’ And I think that’s self-explanatory.” “The Bhagavad Gita is a sacred scripture and the basis of Hinduism. The fundamental principle of the Bhagavad Gita is that there is Divine Energy everywhere. For instance, in Chapter 10, Verse 20, which says, ‘O Arjuna, I’m seated in the heart of all living entities. I am the beginning, middle and end of all of these beings.’” “So, on these bases it’s obvious that Hinduism discourages consumption of animals, animal flesh and meat.” “I think it’s quite simplistic to jump to a verse in Genesis, in the Old Testament, where it says that God gives humans every seed and seed-bearing plant for food, as a kind of endorsement that we should be vegan, and that that was what God’s big plan for us was.”
