Purpose in the Life Experience: From “Christ Consciousness” by Edgar Cayce, Part 1 of 2

Purpose in the Life Experience: From “Christ Consciousness” by Edgar Cayce, Part 1 of 2

Internationally known clairvoyant Edgar Cayce was called “the sleeping prophet” due to the seemingly “deep sleep” he entered before he started a prophecy. He performed some 22,000 readings over four decades, from 1901 to 1944. Of these readings, more than 14,000 were recorded, ranging on topics such as reincarnation, oneness, the Akashic records (a library of all human events), ancient mysteries, universal laws, and the importance of meditation and prayer. Today, we will dive into Edgar Cayce’s profound elaboration on the purpose of our human existence on Earth, as he helps us to understand, or remember, that the Christ consciousness is something tangible and much closer to us than we can imagine – because it is within our own selves. We will also explore the alignment of our Earthly three-dimensional being. “Question: What is the main purpose of this incarnation? Answer: To glorify the Christ-Consciousness on the Earth - in the lives of those with whom ye come in contact, and to live the same thyself. Thus, the needs that this entity, as well as every entity (but this entity in its activities especially), be acquainted with, and walk of it in the way of life as manifest in the Christ.” “To be a channel of blessing to others is that purpose for which each soul has come into conscious activity in a material world. Thus, as you exercise these in relationship to the problems, you become strengthened to meet - physically, mentally, spiritually - those purposes He has given as to thy way of life in this material experience.” “Remember, MIND is the builder. Just as Father, Son, Holy Spirit; body, mind, soul. Then the Master - as the mind - is the way, is the how, that one becomes aware through application, through administration of the hopes, the desires, the faith of the soul itself. For, mind is of body and of soul, and when purified in the Christ-Consciousness it lives on and on as such.” “Remember, then, that all are tried as in the fires of self. For He has not willed that any soul should perish, but has with every temptation, every trial, prepared a way of escape. And they that are His, He will not allow to be tempted beyond that they are able to bear. Each soul, then, should gain this consciousness; that in HIM is the light, Him referring to that One that has been given into the world to become the Savior, the Redeemer of the world.”

Purpose in the Life Experience: From “Christ Consciousness” by Edgar Cayce, Part 2 of 2

Born in Kentucky, USA in 1877, Edgar’s psychic abilities first appeared as a child. His sole desire was to help others, and at the age of 12, an angelic figure appeared before him assuring him that his prayers had been answered. His psychic aptitude grew over time and he began to prophesize on a wide range of subjects. We will now continue our exploration of Edgar Cayce’s fascinating inner discoveries, as written in his “Christ Consciousness.” A soul’s purpose on Earth is to know the Christ within itself, and to become one with that awareness, and with God’s will. “For, truly does the soul live on and become the more and more aware, of that which is done in an unselfish manner, so that it may become more and more aware of abiding and living and being in Christ Consciousness. And hence the greater soul development that may be for any soul, is to be less and less of self, less and less with MATERIAL desire, but more and more in accord with the Christ, the Holy One, the Life, the Manifestation of all those things that have been said to be so impractical as related to materiality; yet they are the REAL, the TRUE things in the experiences of every soul.” “Just being kind and gentle, just being patient and giving in the experiences with those one contacts day by day, brings that joy, that pleasure, that understanding, that can ONLY come with walking with Him. And He is very near unto thee; He is in thine own heart, thine own life, day by day.” “While He, thy Master, thy Friend, thy Brother, stands ever ready to aid – ye cannot bear the cross alone. Hence, He has given, ‘Believe in me and ye may ask that ye WILL.’ If thy will then is one with His, there may come into thine experiences the ability to forgive those who have PURPOSELY wronged thee.” “At such times, then, look deep into the life of the man Jesus and see how He dealt with the problems of the day. As He gave, in the interpretation of His purpose on the Earth, He recognized the needs of each soul as to its purpose on the Earth also. For, all men (and He was a man) have fallen short of the glory of God. Only in Him, through Him, by Him may one attain to that true sonship, that true fellowship, that true relationship to the Creative Forces or God.”

Selection from The Sutra of Complete Enlightenment: Chapters 1-2, Part 1 of 2

Selection from The Sutra of Complete Enlightenment: Chapters 1-2, Part 1 of 2

The Sutra of Complete Enlightenment (Yuanjue jing) is a Buddhist scripture most likely composed in China during the start of the eighth century with its origin deemed to be from the Chan and Huayan field of study and practice. It is a very popular and influential sutra within the meditation-oriented Buddhist schools of East Asia like Chinese Chan, Korean Seon and Japanese Zen. A key factor for its popularity is its condensed format that focuses on the most important theoretical issues of the nature of enlightenment. There are twelve chapters and a short convocation in The Sutra of Complete Enlightenment. The convocation section sets out the scene of the sermon and the involvement of key participants. In a deep state of meditative concentration (Samādhi), Buddha and one hundred thousand great Bodhisattvas, with twelve eminent Bodhisattvas acting as spokespersons, engage in dialogue with the Buddha on doctrine, practice and enlightenment. “‘Virtuous man,’ quoth the Buddha, ‘the Supreme King of Dharma hath a great Dharanic Portal, named the Consummate Enlightenment, whence there emanate spontaneously all the sublimate veracious-thusness, Bodhi, Nirvana, and Paramita, whereby He hath heretofore instructed all Bodhisattvas. Whilst all the thus-adventists were still in their primordial causal terra, they all relied on the consummate effulgence upon the purified aspect of enlightenment, whence they were able to eliminate inanity perpetually, so that they were able to attain Buddhahood.’” “‘Virtuous man, when one practices on the thus-adventist’s consummate enlightenment in the primordial terra, one shall comprehend that nascences and demises are nothing but ethereal blossoms, and resultingly, to this practitioner, all transmigrations shall then cease to be; and he shall also perceive that there are neither body nor mind to undergo such nascences and demises — Yet this is not due to any endeavor executed that could make it so, but simply owing to the non-existence of the quintessence. And that which could make such perception and consciousness is akin to the ethereal space as well; that which could comprehend everything being like the ethereal space, yet again, is no more than another ethereal-blossomwise phenomenon. However, one still could not aver that the essence of perception and consciousness is altogether nihil. It is only when both existence and non-existence are entirely dispelled that it could come to be entitled as the state of Congruity with Purified Enlightenment. Wherefore is it so? For both existence and non-existence are of the nature of ethereal space — both of which being always unchangeable; for within the thus-adventist repertory, there is neither nascence nor demise, neither comprehension nor perception; for they are akin to the quintessence of the Dharmic spheres, which is ultimately consummate and immanently pervasive throughout the ten directions. Such a state comes to be termed as the Dharmic Cultivation of the Primordial Terra. Owing to this, the Bodhisattva is able to generate the purified mind in the major vehicle. If the multibeings in the fin de siècle could cultivate themselves in compliance with this, never shall they degenerate into any devious diews.’”

Selection from The Sutra of Complete Enlightenment: Chapters 1-2, Part 2 of 2

“‘Virtuous man, the multifarious phantasmal transformations of all the multibeings are generated from the wondrous mind of their thus-adventistic consummate enlightenment. It can be compared to the ethereal blossoms, which come into being, as it were, out of the space; and when the phantasmal blossoms vanish, the essence of the space would not go into deterioration along with the blossoms. Thus, the phantasmal minds of multibeings are to terminate along with the phantasmata; yet when all phantasmata die away, the enlightened mind would still remain impregnable. Nevertheless, when this enlightenment is maintained as an opposition to phantasm, such enlightenment would still be reduced to a sort of phantasm. If one professes that there is enlightenment, it would only evince that one has not yet been entirely detached from phantasm. On the other hand, if someone pronounces that there is no enlightenment, he would be entangled in the same phantasmal state as the former person. Consequently, only when all phantasmata have come to expiration, could it be deemed as the state of impregnability.’” “‘Virtuous man, all Bodhisattvas and latter-age multibeings must perforce depart from the phantasmal transformations, and all spurious delusive phenomena. If one is able to persist steadfastly in one’s intent for renunciation, in the meantime it behooves one to be aware that such an intent is also phantasmal; hence it should also be renounced.’” “‘Virtuous man, true awareness of the phantasmata shall enable one to depart from them forthwith; hence no other dexterous means need to be implemented for it. And on one’s departure from phantasmata, straightway would one become enlightened; hence, no gradual approaches would ever be in need, either. If only all Bodhisattvas and latter-age multibeings could cultivate in compliance with this means, they would be able to detach themselves from all phantasmata perpetually.’ At that juncture, the World-Venerated One, wishing to reiterate this import, divulged this Gatha: ‘Samantabhadra, it behooves thee to comprehend That ever since time immemorial, The phantasmal inanity of all the multibeings Has been constituted out of their consummate enlightenment, Which is akin to that of all the thus-adventists. This could be likened to the ethereal blossoms, Which rely on the space for manifesting their appearances. However, when the ethereal blossoms vanish, The ethereal space still remains unmoved as ever. All phantasmata arise from perceptions, And when these phantasmata expire The perceptivity is to stay as consummate as ever, For the perceptive mind is perpetually unchangeable. If only all the Bodhisattvas and latter-age multibeings Could constantly be detached from all phantasmata, And when all phantasms are renounced, It would be like igniting fire in a block of wood: When the wood is incinerated, the fire would also expire. As enlightenment per se is beyond graduality, So would it be the same with dexterous means.’”

Practice What You Believe: Faith Panel on the Relationship between Religion and Veganism, Part 3 of 4

Practice What You Believe: Faith Panel on the Relationship between Religion and Veganism, Part 3 of 4

“So in Islam, we have something which involves animal sacrifice, which is ‘Eid.’ And so the whole point of animal sacrifice on that day is kind of to commemorate what Prophet Ibrahim (Peace be upon Him) did for God when God tested His loyalty. There are other ways that you can celebrate Eid and make sacrifices without making it an animal sacrifice. You can sacrifice your time, your money. It doesn’t have to be an animal. It's the personal sacrifice that is important.” “Even within the Old Testament, Hebrew Bible, animal sacrifice is controversial. So there are Prophets saying you shouldn't do this anymore. When you kill an ox, it's as bad as killing a human being, the Prophets say, and God doesn't want all of this animal sacrifice. So even within those texts you've got that. And then in a modern context, I think we can recognize that after the first century, neither Jews nor Christians are sacrificing. And so in a modern religious context, in Christianity and Judaism, that isn't the question. And so the question is, whether or not anymore we need to consume animals in this way. And I think the answer, in the context where we find ourselves now, is clearly, no.” “So the kind of outreach that I do is I’ll take part in the ‘Cube of Truth.’ And they've got footage of halal slaughterhouses, as well as other slaughterhouses. So, I'll show Muslims that this is not just in regards to non-halal meat, it’s also the meat that you're eating as well. There's cruelty in all meat production, not just non-halal. Another thing that I do is, whenever I take part in marches now, I'll always have my sign showing religion in it as well. The quote that I read out earlier: ‘A good deed done to an animal is like a good deed done to a human being.’” “In terms of it being related to the faith in community, we see that we have a prime minister in India right now who has stopped or illegalized the slaughter of cows. So that's a big deal. I mean, he has challenged the status quo. He has challenged a lot of things that are happening there. He's taking a very strong and tough stance. So, he really puts a lot of hope, as a politician is probably for me, like a miracle. But he really is doing great things.”

“As a Christian today, reading the texts in the context of mass industrialized animal agriculture today, seem to me to be obviously pointing to the radical inconsistency between our modern practices, in relation to animals, and the faith that Christians share. So that's what motivates my Christian veganism.” “I know that our Prophet's (Peace Be Upon Him) diet was mainly plant-based. His main food sources were dates and barley. So I think more than 90% of His diet was plant-based. A lot of Muslims disregard that fact, and it's more of a cultural thing that they eat so much meat. So I think if they looked into religion deeply, when it comes to food, then they would realize that meat is not a big part of religion; it’s actually the opposite.” On June 20, 2020, Supreme Master Ching Hai was respectfully invited as a guest speaker at World UNITY Week. “It’s good that we have this opportunity to express our unity spirit and gratefulness to Heaven and Earth for our world really needs it. Needs earnest prayers and sincere effort to unite all beings on the planet. Because we are all nourished from Earth and blessed by Heavens. We are brothers and sisters, including all non-human beings on Earth…However, just prayers and talk are not good enough. We have to act. We have to change our way of life to more benevolent, compassionate, loving and kind towards each other, regardless of race, species and nationalities…” “I think you all know what I am talking about, since you are all spiritual people and have deep-rooted spiritual knowledge passed down to you since ages, and ages. The wisdom of old has never been lost in the community of the indigenous people. And you know well, according to that wisdom, we cannot expect full happiness, full joy if we cause sorrow to others including our Earth co-tenants, the sweet animals and all other beings around us. They are the blessing sent from Heaven to help us in our sojourn on this planet. We should appreciate them, protect them and be grateful for their presence. So my simple message is: Be Vegan, Make Peace. Thank you all for doing your part to save our world.”

The Wisdom of Solomon: Selection from the Books of the Apocrypha, Part 1 of 2

The Wisdom of Solomon: Selection from the Books of the Apocrypha, Part 1 of 2

The Apocrypha is a group of ancient books with uncertain authorship whose contents overlap parts of the Christian and Hebrew Bibles. The term “apocrypha” means “secret,” “hidden,” or “non-canonical.” Indeed, these books have been considered sacred, with a more advanced teaching than would normally be made available to the general public. Today, apocryphal books remain part of the Holy Bible in the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches, while other Christian traditions still value them for religious study. One of the Apocrypha books is The Wisdom of Solomon, in which wisdom is personified – such is the emphasis placed on that virtue. Today, we will explore an enthralling selection from the Apocrypha book, “The Wisdom of Solomon,” in regards to the true virtues of life, being the real means of approaching it, as wisdom is elaborated on as treasured goal for us to achieve. Wisdom is referred to as “she,” and is being described as an ultimate richness of life. “Wisdom is glorious, and never fadeth away: yea, she is easily seen of them that love her, and found of such as seek her. She preventeth them that desire her, in making herself first known unto them. Whoso seeketh her early shall have no great travail: for he shall find her sitting at his doors. To think therefore upon her, is perfection of wisdom: and whoso watcheth for her shall quickly be without care.” “For she goeth about seeking such as are worthy of her, sheweth herself favourably unto them in the ways, and meeteth them in every thought. For the very true beginning of her is the desire of discipline; and the care of discipline is love; and love is the keeping of her laws; and the giving heed unto her laws is the assurance of incorruption; and incorruption maketh us near unto God: therefore, the desire of wisdom bringeth to a kingdom.” “I preferred her before sceptres and thrones, and esteemed riches nothing in comparison of her. Neither I compared unto her any precious stone, because all gold in respect of her is as a little sand, and silver shall be counted as clay before her.” “God hath granted me to speak as I would, and to conceive as is meet for the things that are given me: because it is He that leadeth unto wisdom, and directeth the wise.”

The Wisdom of Solomon: Selection from the Books of the Apocrypha, Part 2 of 2

“For wisdom, which is the worker of all things, taught me: for in her is an understanding spirit holy, one only, manifold, subtle, lively, clear, undefiled, plain, not subject to hurt, loving the thing that is good quick, which cannot be allowed, ready to do good, kind to man, steadfast, sure, free from care, having all power, overseeing all things, and going through all understanding, pure, and most subtle, spirits. For wisdom is more moving than any motion: she passeth and goeth through all things by reason of her pureness. For she is the breath of the power of God, and a pure influence flowing from the glory of the Almighty: therefore, can no defiled thing fall into her.” “For she is the brightness of the everlasting light, the unspotted mirror of the power of God, and the image of His goodness. And being but one, she can do all things: and remaining in herself, she maketh all things new: and in all ages entering into holy souls, she maketh them friends of God, and prophets. For God loveth none but him that dwelleth with wisdom. For she is more beautiful than the Sun, and above all the order of stars: being compared with the light, she is found before it.” “For after this cometh night: but vice shall not prevail against wisdom. Wisdom reacheth from one end to another mightily: and sweetly doth she order all things. I loved her, and sought her out from my youth, I desired to make her my spouse, and I was a lover of her beauty. In that she is conversant with God, she magnifieth her nobility: yea, the Lord of all things Himself loved her.” “For she is privy to the mysteries of the knowledge of God, and a lover of His works. If riches be a possession to be desired in this life; what is richer than wisdom, that worketh all things? And if prudence work; who of all that are is a more cunning workman than she? And if a man love righteousness, her labors are virtues: for she teacheth temperance and prudence, justice and fortitude: which are such things, as one can have nothing more profitable in their life.” “If a man desire much experience, she knoweth things of old, and conjectureth aright what is to come: she knoweth the subtilties of speeches, and can expound dark sentences: she foreseeth signs and wonders, and the events of seasons and times. Therefore, I purposed to take her to me to live with me, knowing that she would be a counsellor of good things, and a comfort in cares and grief.”

Selections of Mystic Verses of Tulsi Sahib (vegetarian), Saint of Hathras, Part 1 of 2

00:11:12

Selections of Mystic Verses of Tulsi Sahib (vegetarian), Saint of Hathras, Part 1 of 2

Born in India in the 18th Century, Param Sant Tulsi Sahib showed very early interest in spiritual life. Rather than accept a position of royalty in his family, He departed from home in pursuit of meditation practice and became fully realized soon after. In poetry and other writings, Param Sant Tulsi Sahib described the brilliance and penetrating wisdom of the inner life. At the same time, He emphasized that a living Master is necessary to access this direct connection with the Kingdom of God. We will now share with you, “Selections of Mystic Verses of Tulsi Sahib (vegetarian), Saint of Hathras.” “At the outset, I offer salutation to my Lord, the Satguru; In surrender at His feet, Tulsi loses himself in ecstasy. I pay homage in all humility at the feet of my Master, Whose grace has revealed the mystery of (inner Heavenly) Light and Sound. I offer myself in adoration to the Saints, Who have bestowed on my soul the power to see. The brilliant light of surrender has revealed unto me The essence and the true form of my Master.” “Thou art all Knowledge, the sole object of my worship. One with the Infinite and the Beyond art Thou, O Master. Satguru is the true Lord, imperishable and supreme; Seeing my miserable state, He cut asunder the noose of death. He has given me shelter at His lotus feet within. He has made my soul His own humble slave. He has turned my surat (soul) and nirat (attention) unto Himself; With loving devotion, I surrender myself at His feet.” “How can I ever describe the greatness of my Master? He has given my soul the key to the Inaccessible. The vision of the Invisible has enchanted my soul. Through the grace of the Saints I have recognized the Master. Piercing the granite wall, my soul enjoys bliss divine; Intoxicated with joy, I dwell forever at His lotus feet. The indigent Tulsi knows naught else. In the thought of his Master, he remains absorbed. My Master has given to me knowledge of the self; Time and again my soul ascends to celestial regions. Traversing the regions within, I beheld the Cosmos; The beginning and the end of Time stand revealed to me. The beginning and the end of creation that He sees within. Verily, of that experience does Tulsi give a description. The Universe is contained within the human frame, Tulsi has himself seen what to others is beyond reach. Not only the macrocosm within the microcosm did I behold. But, piercing the veil, I also perceived the One pervading all. Within the body, Tulsi has seen the Invisible Being; Knowing the unfathomable One, he narrates the wondrous tale. The Universe is contained within the human body, Tulsi has revealed this Truth to all seekers.”

Selections of Mystic Verses of Tulsi Sahib (vegetarian), Saint of Hathras, Part 2 of 2

“Rare is the human form even for gods, thus declare all sages from the housetops. Declare all sages from the housetops: Even gods will not obtain the human form. For such a heaven do the foolish aspire, whence gods get thrown into hell when earned merit ends. Lured into the performance of pious deeds, people have still to wander from species to species. He who has perceived the Essence within his body and mind Looks down with contempt, O Tulsi, on the pleasures of paradise. Rare, indeed, is the human form even for the gods, thus declare all sages from the housetops.” “Listen to me Palak Ram, my esteemed friend. They verily fall into the dungeon of hell Who slaughter living beings and eat their flesh; Who kills a goat, suffers the consequences. They do this to seek the pleasure of the palate. And cause life from the living to be extinguished. For the sake of sensual gratification they buy sin. And get their abode in the fires of hell. Never will they get release from this bondage, Be they hermits, recluses, householders or others. None will escape the tortures of hell. Whoever has eaten flesh and fish in this life Is bound in captivity by the butcher, Kal (the negative power). Nothing good will come out of such conduct. Take this as evidence from the writings of Saints. Nanak and Kabir have given the same message, Dadu and Dariya have sung the same song.” “Look at the folly of man, for which he suffers much pain: He kills a living being, he deprives it of its right to live. He cuts a goat and offers it to appease the goddess. The ignorant fool knows not the wages of his sin. Others’ offspring he kills and feels no compassion. How shall he be well, suffering anguish life after life? He eats the flesh of beasts, he puts them to an untimely death; Such a man will take on the form of a ghost, life after life. Tulsi declares from the housetops: Kill not the living; Within all resides the beloved Lord — listen, O men and women!” “The mental make-up of man emanates from his karmas. He remains involved in performing actions good and bad. According to the nature of the actions he performs, He is put into the bondage of various species. In accordance with the trade that a merchant practices, He carries loss and profit, pain and pleasure along with him. He who conducts his trade under the sway of desires Drifts with the currents of the ocean of eighty-four; He moves from species to species according to his actions. This snare is manifestly spread in the entire creation. He is born, he dies, and again he takes a new frame; As he sows, so does he reap the fruit of his actions. In the cycle of eighty-four, he remains in slumber; And in the human form, only a rare one awakens. Through a Master’s teachings he realizes God, Just as collyrium (healing herb) placed in his eyes restores his vision. Without a Master’s teachings to guide them, even gods, men and sages do not get release; When Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh get not deliverance, what can we say about ordinary creatures?” “Oh think thou deeply and deliberate; Without the guidance of a Master The way cannot ever be found. He will dye thee in satsang’s color. Take thy soul to regions celestial. And reveal the firmament within. If thou desirest to revel In realms spiritual within thine own self, None will help thee except the Saints. In a short moment wilt thou depart, And thy body be reduced to dust. Thy Master alone, O Tulsi, will show The entrance back to thy Home.” “Man continues to stumble in ignorance and thus goes on suffering from the shaft of pain. He is bereft of the company of the holy; who but the Saint can put him on the Path? If he were to meet the benevolent Satguru, the primordial mystery would be unraveled. Indeed, O Tulsi, the Master would wipe off the stores of karma and drive the Angel of Death away.”

Meeting the Master: From Godfré Ray King’s Unveiled Mysteries – The Dominion and Majesty of Ascended Master Saint Germain (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Meeting the Master: From Godfré Ray King’s Unveiled Mysteries – The Dominion and Majesty of Ascended Master Saint Germain (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Guy Warren Ballard was a United States mining engineer and a co-founder, together with his wife Edna Anne Wheeler Ballard, of the “I AM” spiritual movement, inspired by his life-changing meeting with the Ascended Master Saint Germain. Following this enlightening encounter, Mr. Ballard devoted his life to spreading the Master’s wisdom, according to his capacity. From Master Saint Germain’s dictation and teachings, Mr. Ballard wrote a series of books under the pseudonym Godfré Ray King. Master Saint Germain’s imparted spiritual knowledge was the basis for many lectures given by Mr. Ballard, as well as for the founding of the “I AM” Religious Activity in the early 1930s. By 1938, it had up to one million followers. Today, the volumes documenting the precious mysteries revealed by the Ascended Master to Godfré Ray King are still a fascinating spiritual gem for many across the globe. The three most famous volumes are titled “Unveiled Mysteries,” “The Magic Presence,” and “The ‘I AM’ Discourses.” Today, we will read an excerpt from Guy Warren Ballard’s, or Godfré Ray King’s book “Unveiled Mysteries.” “Remember always – ‘One becomes - that - upon which he meditates’ - and since all things have come forth from the ‘Light’ - ‘Light’ - is the Supreme Perfection - and Control - of all things.” “Contemplation and adoration of the ‘Light’ compels Illumination to take place in the mind - health, strength, and order to come into the body - and peace, harmony, and success to manifest in the affairs of every individual - who will really do it, and seeks to maintain it.” “All the way down the centuries - in every age, under every condition - we are told by all who have expressed the greater accomplishments of Life that - the ‘Light’ is Supreme - the ‘Light’ is everywhere - and in the ‘Light’ - exist all things.” “To any who are of that opinion, I wish to say simply this: ‘The time the average person spends in criticizing, condemning, and blaming - people, conditions, and things - for not being something other than they are - if occupied with this recognition and use of the “Light” - will make Heaven manifest on Earth - for the individual who dares to try and has determination enough to maintain it. Nothing is impossible. The “Light” never fails.’”

Meeting the Master: From Godfré Ray King’s Unveiled Mysteries – The Dominion and Majesty of Ascended Master Saint Germain (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with a selection from Guy Warren Ballard’s, or Godfré Ray King’s book “Unveiled Mysteries.” “Mankind in the unascended state, marvel at these things - but I tell you - it is no more Effort - for us to change the appearance and activity of our bodies - than it is for the ordinary human being - to change his clothes. The unfortunate condition in human consciousness - that keeps individuals in their self-created limitations - is their attitude of mind - which either fears or ridicules - what it does not understand - or what is still worse - in its ignorance says – ‘That is impossible.’ A thing may not be probable - under certain human conditions - but the God-Self - which is the Great ‘Light’ - can change all human conditions - so nothing is - impossible.” “Every individual has the Divine Flame of Life Within him, and - That God-part of Him - has Dominion - wherever he moves in the universe. If he - because of his own mental inertia - will not exert the necessary effort - to reorder his age old habits – of mind and body - he goes on bound by the chains of his own forging - but if he chooses to know the God Within himself - and dares - to give that God-Self - all control of his outer activities - he will receive the knowledge once more of his Dominion over all substance - which has been his from the beginning.” “Thus, does the outer life keep the individual bound to the wheel of necessity, rebirth, continued struggle, and pain until we – let - the ‘Light of the Christ Within’ – illumine and purify us that we may respond only to the Plan of God - Love, Peace, and Perfection for His Creation. This is the kind of lesson - one never forgets - because objective teaching records the experience in the – vision - as well as in the mind. The record in the sight is deeper and - necessarily receives more attention - from the outer activity of the intellect.” “‘There is only one way,’ he went on, ‘to avoid the cosmic wheel of cause and effect - the necessity for re-embodiment - and that is through the conscious effort to comprehend - the Law of Life. One must earnestly seek the God Within - make permanent, conscious contact with that “Inner Self” - and hold firmly to it - in the face of every condition in the outer life. It will be my pleasure and privilege to show you more - but only for the instruction it will bring - to yourself and others.’”

Selections from "The Pathway of Life" by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 1, God, Part 1 of 2

Selections from "The Pathway of Life" by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 1, God, Part 1 of 2

“Everyone thinks of changing the world but no one thinks of changing himself.” This insightful saying by Leo Tolstoy is a valuable reminder for all of us to reflect inward. The renowned 19th-century Russian author suggested that we ask ourselves what God really wants us to do. As Leo Tolstoy said, “In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.” Supreme Master Ching Hai once spoke of Tolstoy in a group meditation with our Association members in July, 1997 in Los Angeles, USA. “Because Tolstoy was a practitioner. That’s why when you read his stories, most stories are about spiritual things, about God, and very happy and very positive. It’s very good to read him, to read his books. You try. If you haven’t, you try. You can read more. Such things are very good for you.” We would like to share an insightful excerpt from Volume 1 of “The Pathway of Life,” a collection of Tolstoy’s philosophies on religion, life, death and more. “Besides all that is corporeal within us, and in the entire universe, we know something incorporeal which gives life to our body and is connected with it. This incorporeal something, connected with our body, we call our soul. The same incorporeal something, but not connected with anything, and giving life to everything that lives, we call God.” “To know God is possible only within oneself. Until you find God within yourself, you will nowhere find him. There is no God for him who cannot find Him within himself.” “It is not you who live; what you call yourself, is dead. That which animates you is God. Do not think that you can earn merit with God by works; all works are as nothing before God. It is needful not to earn merit before God, but to be God.” “It is well to fear God, but it is better to love Him. But best of all it is to resurrect Him within. Man must love, but one can truly love only that in which there is no evil. And there is only one Being in whom there is no evil: namely God. If God did not love Himself in you, you could never love yourself, God or your neighbor.”

Selections from "The Pathway of Life" by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 1, God, Part 2 of 2

“Some say of God that He dwells in heaven. It is also said that He dwells in man. Both statements are true: He is in heaven, that is, in the limitless universe, and He is also in the soul of man.” “The more a man fulfills the will of God, the better he knows Him. If a man fails altogether to fulfill the will of God, he does not know Him at all, though he might affirm that he knew Him or pray to Him. Even as you must come closer to a thing in order to know it, so you may know God only if you draw nigh unto Him. And to draw nigh unto God it is possible only by good works. And the more a man accustoms himself to live a good life, the more closely he will know God. And the better he knows God, the better he will love his fellowmen. One thing leads to the other. …that we must fulfill the God given law in our own life, and that our life becomes better to the extent that we fulfill His law.” “My spiritual ‘I’ is no kinsman to my body, therefore it is in my body not of its own volition, but in accordance with some higher will. This higher will is what we understand as God and call God. God is neither to be worshipped, nor praised. One can only be silent about Him and serve Him. As long as a man sings and shouts and repeats in the presence of others: ‘Lord, Lord,’ know that he has not found God. He who has found Him maintains silence.”

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 1 of 4 - The Origin of the Creation

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 1 of 4 - The Origin of the Creation

Since time immemorial, our planet has been graced with Light-bringers, enlightened Beings who embody spiritual wisdom and offer it for the benefit of humanity. On this special occasion celebrating the Three-Year Anniversary of Supreme Master Television, we are honored to present “The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World.” This four-part series represents a compilation of some of the most powerful and illuminating excerpts from Words of Wisdom which, as you will see, all lead to the same ultimate Divinity. Welcome to Part One: The Origin of the Creation. One of the questions that we are sure to encounter in life is: where does the world come from, and where do we come from? The Holy Bible says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God … Through Hirm all things were made, and without Hirm nothing was made that has been made.” Taoism Tao Te Ching Chapter 1: “The name that can be named is not the enduring and unchanging name. (Conceived of as) having no name, it is the Originator of heaven and earth; (conceived of as) having a name, it is the Mother of all things.” Bahá'í Faith The Kitab-I-Aqdas: “He, verily, is the Munificent, the Generous. He has previously made known unto you that which would be uttered by this Dayspring of Divine wisdom. He said, and He speaks the truth: He is the One Who will under all conditions proclaim: ‘Verily, there is none other God besides Me, the One, the Incomparable, the Omniscient, the All-Informed.’” In a lecture given at Denver University, Colorado, USA on April 10, 1993, Supreme Master Ching Hai revealed more about how we can awaken this extraordinary Source of Heavenly benevolence and compassion. “All Masters, all true Masters, are one. They come from one Source. The highest Master is the Supreme Master, the Almighty, which is in all of you. When we first came here, we were Masters before. We came here, we blessed the world, and we forgot all about our power and our glory. Our energies were also exhausted because we paid attention to outer phenomena. All the Masters who come here are the ones who are awakened in this awareness, and know Their true glory. They can travel the road Home frequently and They can lead us back Home. So there’s no need to discriminate between any Masters. All the religions are founded after the Master has gone; therefore, we have Christianity after Christ, Buddhism after Buddha, etc.”

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 2 of 4 - The Gift of Being Human

00:15:29

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 2 of 4 - The Gift of Being Human

In this episode, we will see how we should be grateful for our human body, as it offers a rare opportunity for spiritual advancement. Supreme Master Ching Hai also spoke of the priceless value of the human body in a lecture in Kaohsiung, Taiwan (Formosa) on May 9, 1989. “We are such small humans, yet the whole universe is within us. Can you believe it? Therefore, it’s correct to say that the human body is very precious. If we don’t know that we are so precious, it would be too pitiful. In the Bible, it is said, ‘What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?’” Universal White Brotherhood: The Two Paths and The Ascending Way. “Pay attention to the smallest flicker of Light to find the unknown paths of Life. Hidden within are the Divine joys, descending from Heaven. The Earth is a place of Divine treasures, from which you benefit daily.” Spiritualism: The Body Is the Temple By Edgar Cayce. “Thy body is indeed the temple of the living God. Where in thy body, then, is the door through which - when ye open it - the Christ may come in, the Christ-Conscience? He is the Son of righteousness. He is the Sun of thy soul. He is the Maker, and thus through that awareness ye may make thy whole purpose one with Him - in thy sincerity.” Confucianism Analects: “Confucius said, ‘A gentleman with lofty ideals and a man of benevolence will never seek to live at the expense of injuring their virtue. They will even sacrifice their lives to preserve their virtue.’” Sant Mat Spiritual Gems By Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji (vegetarian): “His is a difficult task, for He gets no support from parents. The parents (Kal and maya) do not wish the entrant (Soul) to enter the University of Spirit (Tenth Gate or Third Eye) – what to say about contacting Nam. The parents (Kal and maya) allure him with easy temptations and create worries, sickness, and other adversities to confound his intellect. Their function is to keep the soul away from Nam. Slowly the entrant grasps the new position, and slowly the entrant realizes the true worth of his parents. Slowly he begins to dissociate from them, and slowly he takes the Guru as his real benefactor, and slowly he leaves the nine portals and makes his approach towards the tenth – to make contact with Nam and work on Nam.”

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 3 of 4 - The Law of Karmic Retribution

00:15:31

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 3 of 4 - The Law of Karmic Retribution

Welcome to Part Three – The Law of Karmic Retribution. Different religions may refer differently to karmic retribution, or cause and effect, but it is understood as a concept by all. We have heard of the sayings, “What goes around, comes around,” and “Like attracts like.” Positive actions bring favorable effects, while negative yields unfavorable results, also known as karmic retribution. While the principles of Divine Love and Grace are higher, and may be mercifully applied in the physical realms, karmic retribution is a law that cannot be ignored. The Holy Bible clearly teaches the concept of karma in the often-quoted verse, “As you sow, so shall you reap.” The verse continues, “The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Even in ancient China thousands of years ago, people understood the wisdom of the enlightened Master Confucius, “Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.” Buddhism Surangama Sutra: “Ananda, if living beings in the six worlds of existence cease to kill, they will not be subject to the continual round of births and deaths… How then can those who practice great compassion feed on the flesh and blood of living beings?” Sikhism Sri Guru Granth Sahib: “The world eats dead carcasses, living by neglect and greed. Like a goblin, or a beast, they kill and eat the forbidden carcasses of meat. So control your urges, or else you will be seized by the Lord, and thrown into the tortures of hell.” Jainism Bhagavati Aradhana: “To kill any living being amounts to killing oneself. Compassion to others is compassion to one’s own self. Therefore one should avoid violence like poison and thorns (that cause pain).” Cao Đài-ism The Collection of Divine Messages: “If you kill any living being, you shall be punished; no one knows whether a living being may have been an Immortal or a Buddha reincarnating to Earth. As I have said, all life is Me. To destroy life is to attempt to destroy Me. And it is not easy to destroy Me. Teach that to human beings.” In an effort to halt the factory farms and meat-processing plants that kill billions of animals every year, Supreme Master Ching Hai has been speaking out in urgent messages for some time. She asks that all meat-related businesses cease their operations and switch to a more wholesome living. On February 22, 2020, Supreme Master Ching Hai specifically addressed livestock industry owners as well as the fishing, egg, milk, fur, laboratory testing, cosmetics and leather industries.

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 4 of 4 - The Glorious Transcendence

00:13:52

The Golden Thread of Wisdom That Lights the World, Part 4 of 4 - The Glorious Transcendence

As we know from previous episodes, we have a noble origin; we are created by a God who wants to help us become unburdened of our endless karma. So it must be possible that we can achieve Transcendence, or freedom from the cycle of death and rebirth. Sant Mat Spiritual Gems By Hazur Maharaj Sawan Singh Ji (vegetarian): “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 (negative force), 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. Until then it is only a saying. But the scroll is torn when you devote yourself to Naam; that is, by practice of Surat Shabd Yoga.” Sikhism Holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib: “Meeting with the True Guru, you shall not have to go through the cycle of reincarnation again; the pains of birth and death will be taken away. Through the Perfect Word of the Shabad (inner Heavenly Sound), all understanding is obtained; remain absorbed in the Name of the Lord. O my mind, focus your consciousness on the True Guru. The Immaculate Naam (God’s Name) itself, ever-fresh, comes to abide within the mind.” Essenes Essene Gospel of Peace: “Seek not the law in your scriptures, for the Law is Life, whereas the scripture is dead. I tell you truly, Moses received not his laws from God in writing, but through the living Word. The Law is living Word of living God to living prophets for living men.” Dadu Dayal The Compassionate Mystic: “God-realization is possible only in the human form. It is solely as a human being that one can cross the vast ocean of the world by riding the boat of the true Name of the Lord.” Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken on many occasions of this ancient way to connect with our inner Nature, leading to complete liberation. “If we want to know that we are one, we want to truly know it and not just hear it from someone or feel it, we have to really know it. If you want to really know it, it’s not difficult. We only have to turn inward and ‘listen inwardly to our inner Nature,’ then we will find our own Buddha Nature in an instant.”

The Kingdom of God, Guru and God are One: Selections from Dadu Dayal (vegetarian): The Compassionate Mystic, Part 1 of 2

The Kingdom of God, Guru and God are One: Selections from Dadu Dayal (vegetarian): The Compassionate Mystic, Part 1 of 2

One such great spiritual teacher is Sant (Saint) Dadu Dayal from the same tradition as Saint Kabir. He lived during the 16th century. “Dadu” means brother and “Dayal” is “the Compassionate One.” Dadu first met his Guru at the early age of 11 while playing with friends near a pond. He was initiated by this teacher into the “Everlasting Knowledge of God.” Dadu paid little attention to the external forms of worship, such as visits to temples and pilgrimages. Instead, he concentrated on Japa (repetition of Divine Names) as well as remembrance of the original divine source and his inner connection and whole-hearted devotion to God. The group of Dadu’s followers are known as the Dadu Panth and refrain from alcohol and uphold vegetarianism. Sant Dadu Dayal did not leave any written records. But 5,000 of his verses, or oral teachings were recorded by his disciple Rajjab and are known as the Dadu Anubhav Vani, composed in the local Braj Bhasha language, a mixture of Hindi and Rajasthani. Dadu: The Compassionate Mystic is an English translation collection of Dadu Dayal’s poems by Dr. Kashi Nath Upadhyaya. Today we are going to share with you some of the enlightening verses selected from this collection. LIFE WITHOUT GURU IS WASTED “Human life is wasted if a perfect Guide who can join the broken link and take one to the other shore is not found, and if works pleasing to God are not done. Forsaking God and running after the pleasures of the world is like throwing aside priceless diamonds and picking up useless stones. If such a one who can mend the broken connection And take one across to the other shore is not found, The opportunity is lost again, says Dadu. This body is a raft, and the world is an ocean, deep and unfathomable. How can anyone cross it and go to the other shore without the Sailor? asks Dadu. I have done nothing that could please God. My coming to this world has been in vain, O Dadu. With what face should one laugh and talk? One is departing, having spent one's priceless life in vain. One should cry, says Dadu. The holy feet of the Lord - the very purpose for which one is to live in the world – are not within one’s heart. Fie on such a life without devotion to God in this Iron Age, O Dadu! You did what was pleasing to your mind And transgressed the commandment of the Lord. How will you show your face to that Beloved? asks Dadu. You did all to please the senses And provided all that the mind demanded. But nothing of that for which you were created Was done by you, O Dadu. You were provided with equipment For rendering service to the Lord. But you have forgotten obedience to the Lord, And not a single work have you accomplished, says Dadu.”

The Kingdom of God, Guru and God are One: Selections from Dadu Dayal (vegetarian): The Compassionate Mystic, Part 2 of 2

GOING WITHIN. “Inner worship alone is the true worship. It is the only effective means of seeing God face to face. Blemishes are washed away only through the inner bath. All outer means are futile. By rendering service within your heart, You see the One who is indestructible and boundless, With no limit on either this end or that, says Dadu. After entering within, let one, O Dadu, bolt the doors of the house. Let one, O Dadu, serve the Lord at the door of eternity. To Him alone is service rendered and homage paid by devotees. Before Him alone they wave lamps in adoration. The ceremony of showing lighted lamps Is to be performed within. Within is worship to be done; Within is service to the Master. It is rare that someone understands. One finds the Lord within the body By playing the unstruck inner veena. By going through the region of the void, The Lord is seen with ease. Search for the Beloved close to the place From where the Sound emerges And you shall find Him, says Dadu. There is solitude there, and there is luster of light. Turn back within yourself, O wise one, And search inside, says Dadu. Give up the habit of going out. He is close to you, O foolish one. One who, turning the attention inward, Brings it within the self, And fixes it on the radiant form of the Master, Is indeed wise, O Dadu. Fix your attention within; Sing always the inner Music with the soul. This mind then dances with ecstasy And enjoys the rhythmic beat. One sings within the self And the rhythmic Music is played. The mind dances with love And there stands the merciful Lord, says Dadu. The body is the pond, and God is the water; The essential discipline is practiced within. Then the impurities and blemishes of the mind Are easily washed away, O Dadu. Treating God’s Name as water, bathe in it, Conquering the senses forever. The body, mind and self are purified thereby, And the five powerful passions are destroyed. God is within the self; He is close to the worshipper But leaving Him aside, people devote themselves to outer places of worship, laments Dadu. This is the mosque, this is the temple: So has the Master shown. Service and salutation are performed within. Why should you go outside? asks Dadu. I found the true home, O friend, within the house itself. Entering the state of blissful meditation, dwell within: Thus has the Master discovered and taught. For the sake of that Home, I wandered everywhere, But the Lord has revealed Himself within my own self. The doors of the palace have been thrown open, And the everlasting abode has been shown. All fears, doubts and delusions have disappeared, And the mind is absorbed in the truth. That state of bliss has it entered, Where the self, transcending the body, ascends. The One that is immovable and unchangeable, The same One have I seen in all. My mind is absorbed in that alone; Other than that there is none. That Home have I found That is the beginning, as well as the end. Now my mind goes not elsewhere. Dadu has been dyed in the color of the One, And therein has he merged.” NECESSITY OF A LIVING MASTER Guru and God are One. “The true Saint is wholly merged in God. God can be realised only through Him, and He can be found through God’s grace. A true devotee, fully immersed in divine love, is one and the same as God, like salt dissolved in water. And eternal dweller of the ocean of divine bliss, a living manifestation of God’s Name, the Saint comes to the world only on a mission of mercy to save others. Where there is God, there is the Saint; Where there is the Saint, there is God. The two are together, O Dadu. Interpenetrating each other, they rest in perfect communion.”
