“Calmness and Silence” and Other Selections from “Así Hablaba Quetzalcóatl (Thus Spoke Quetzalcóatl),” Part 2 of 2

“Calmness and Silence” and Other Selections from “Así Hablaba Quetzalcóatl (Thus Spoke Quetzalcóatl),” Part 2 of 2

“Calmness and Silence ‘Those who search for Silence in calmness will never find it naked. To lay it uncovered you have to search for it among turbulence. Tell me: Of what good is it for a heart to have calmness in solitude? Is it not like the calmness a stagnant lake has in a valley? Yet, how great is a heart when among difficulties and problems it keeps calm and dresses with Silence! It is like the torrent that slides down, serene by the side of the mountain. Some go to places where the most that could bother them would be the chirping of a little bird, or the sound that the wind draws out from the leaves of the trees. And they think: I am tranquil and calm in these places, I have achieved calmness, and Silence is the friend of my heart. But when you get in touch with uproar, your pulses flutter and your hearts get stirred up, and your thoughts collide with violence on your foreheads. And I would ask you: Where have you kept calmness? What dwelling did you prepare for it in your chests that it went away so soon? Know that he who seeks for inner Silence should find it among noises and voices and screams, and taking it should settle with it in your heart, and when you listen to it, you will not hear towards the outside, but towards the inside. And indeed I tell you that not even a hundred storms, nor the explosion of a thousand volcanoes, could ever take you apart from it. To seek them, for inner calmness, do not go to where everything is calm, but to where there is no peace, and be you the peace. That way, in giving it you will find it, and you will have it in the same way that you see how others need you to calm down.’” “An Example in Order to Flourish ‘Men and Women: You will never learn. Do you happen to think you will praise Heaven taking something that He put on Earth for a purpose? Do you really think that by destroying the lives of these beings you flatter Our Creator? These creatures were not put on Earth to be taken and abused for being inferior, just as neither were the animals, nor the birds, nor the least of your brothers among men. If you really need plants to feed yourselves, take only that which you can eat, but do not get carried away by greed, for that unbalances the Earth. If you want to raise an altar to the Eternal, take Nature itself for an altar, and take care of it; because you will make your God rejoice more by leaving each flower and each animal and each brother of yours where they are, rather than by cutting their lives off. Can’t you understand you are taking death and leaving life behind? And may you be the flowers that embellish the temples, for it is true that a humble but filled with love surpasses the greatest palace filled with flowers. Leave then the appearances now, and do not deceive others by putting beautiful fronts outside your hearts.’” “Journey Companions ‘My journey companions here on Earth, Heaven fixed a long time ago. The only thing I am doing now is to reap what He sowed. How many lifetimes have you come to my side? And how many more will you stay with me? Know that Heaven never forsook you. Loneliness sprang from your isolation, but He never stayed apart from you. Do not be deluded by the appearances with which are dressed the things of this world, and know how to distinguish underneath them. Because He can be concealed to the eyes of the flesh, but not to the eyes of the Spirit. And your Master can be very close, without you recognizing him, the same way your path brothers are, and you do not recognize them. There is a saying in wise and faraway lands that goes: When the disciple is prepared, the Master appears. But I ask you: Could it be that the Master never abandoned us, and it was only our ignorance that kept Him concealed?’”

God is Love: From Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

00:15:40

God is Love: From Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with the enlightening wisdom of the Reverend Thomas Merton as expressed in his book, “Thoughts in Solitude.” “There is no true spiritual life outside the Love of Christ. We have a spiritual life only because we are loved by Him. The spiritual life consists in receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit and His Charity, because the Sacred Heart of Jesus has willed, in His Love, that we should live by His Spirit — the same Spirit Which proceeds from the Word and from the Father, and Who is Jesus’ Love for the Father. If we know how great is the Love of Jesus for us, we will never be afraid to go to Him in all our poverty, all our weakness, all our spiritual wretchedness and infirmity.” “All sin is a punishment for the primal sin of not knowing God. That is to say all sin is a punishment for ingratitude.”“He is Love. Deus Caritas est (God is Love). Our knowledge of God is perfected by gratitude: we are thankful and rejoice in the experience of the truth that He is Love. The Eucharist — the Sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving — is a burning hearth of the knowledge of God, for in the Sacrifice, Jesus, giving thanks to the Father, offers and immolates Himself entirely for His Father’s Glory and to save us from our sins. If we do not ‘know’ Him in His sacrifice, how can it avail for us? ‘The knowledge of God is more than holocausts’ (Hosea 6:6). We do not know Him unless we are grateful, and praise the Father with Him.”“There is no neutrality between gratitude and ingratitude. Those who are not grateful, soon begin to complain of everything. Those who do not love, hate. In the spiritual life, there is no such thing as an indifference to love or hate.” “To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us — and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His Love, every moment of existence is a Grace, for it brings with it immense Graces from Him. Gratitude therefore, takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the Goodness of God. For the grateful man knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.”

Leaves of Morya’s Garden: Spiritual Guidance Recorded by Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 1 of 2

Leaves of Morya’s Garden: Spiritual Guidance Recorded by Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 1 of 2

The esteemed mystical and philosophical writers Nicholas and Helena Roerich are two of the most influential spiritual thought leaders from Russia, recognized for founding the doctrine of Agni Yoga, also known as Living Ethics. Traveling extensively throughout Asia to deepen their spiritual studies, the Roerichs eventually met their Master in Darjeeling, India. The ascended Venerated Master Morya, also known as El Morya, is a Master of the Great White Brotherhood, an order of ascended Masters and Their incarnated disciples, one of whom was Helena Blavatsky. Today, we will read some of the lovingly dictated messages of Master Morya, as written down by his disciples, in the book “Leaves of Morya’s Garden.” “The miracle of Beauty in the adornment of our daily lives will exalt mankind. Raise high your light. Illumine the beauties of My Temple. Teach the Joy of Beauty. Teach the Happiness of Wisdom. Teach the Bliss of Love. Teach the Glory of Unity with God. I will grant you the power and fleetness of Mercury. Go forward without doubt, without fear, without turning back.” “Love and striving work miracles in life. We are awakening your energy for new thoughts, which are needed for transmutation, and for the work of thought in life. You must find the resources to create a new life. We send you thoughts — sharpen them without violating Karma.” “I reveal to you the profundity of Ramakrishna’s simple teachings. We, all together, implement the Will of the Creator. Your strength grows through prana.” “I will grant you the power to lead souls to God. I will endow you with the gift of bringing joy to others. Teach the manifestation of Morya. Teach — I will help you.” “We rejoice, O Lord, to offer to Thee our garden. Depart not, O Manifested Lord. Leave not our garden. With stars is Thy Path adorned. By them do we find Thy Way. We shall follow Thee, O Lord. Should the sun’s morning rays banish Thy starry signs, Then will we invoke the aid of storm and whirlwind to obscure its rays. Of what use the sun, if it banish Thy starry tokens?”

Then came the fierce and proud huntsman, Chirawa Gwunbo Dorje, who was enraged by the sight of the Jetsun and shot an arrow at him, but missed. Milar

Love and Desire: From The Sanctuary of Self - Rosicrucian Order Library, Part 1 of 2

00:13:55

Love and Desire: From The Sanctuary of Self - Rosicrucian Order Library, Part 1 of 2

The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis, also known as the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, is a worldwide cultural, educational, and philosophical organization that is perpetuating the profound and practical teachings of the Rosicrucians. The Rosicrucian library is a source of spiritual wisdom and insight that includes the important writings by the respected imperators of the Order such as Dr. Harvey Spencer Lewis, Ralph M. Lewis, and Christian Bernard. Now, we will read from chapter IV, “Love and Desire,” from Part One - “The Mysteries,” in Frater Ralph M. Lewis’s book, “The Sanctuary of Self.” “Love is perhaps the most perplexing to mankind of all his inner experiences, and yet it is one had by every individual to some extent. Love is not a product of the It, is not an intellectual achievement, but an emotional, psychic one had by the self. Because it is such, love has been idealized by the poets and bards to such an extent that most persons believe that it is something to be left to a chance experience, or to be mysteriously attained without formula or method.” “The physical nature of man is one aspect of his generally accepted triune being. There are factors which are essential to it, such as food, drink, shelter, and sleep. When there is a deficiency of them, there is unbalance. The plenitude or fullness of man’s physical nature is its normal state. This normalcy is accompanied by the sensation of gratification, a kind of pleasure which we know as happiness. When there is a deficiency, a lack of that upon which man’s physical being depends, we become conscious of an irritability or of a disharmony. This disharmony engenders desire.” “Each of our objective or receptor senses has an ideal or a quality which is sought after.” “Each sense has a corresponding quality or beauty which is desired. Anything which will bring pleasure or gratification to a sense is by another name beautiful to it.” “Desire, then, is the urge to find the beautiful or its equivalent. It is the seeking out of that thing or condition which will satisfy that nature which the desire serves.” “Man must realize, however, that the end of life is not merely the satisfaction of the physical desires. To pursue these physical loves alone leaves unsatisfied the desires of the other natures. It keeps man continually in distress.”

Love and Desire: From The Sanctuary of Self - Rosicrucian Order Library, Part 2 of 2

00:13:33

Love and Desire: From The Sanctuary of Self - Rosicrucian Order Library, Part 2 of 2

Today, we will continue with Frater Ralph M. Lewis’s “The Sanctuary of Self,” and the chapter “Love and Desire,” in Part One of his book entitled, “The Mysteries.” “There are also the intellectual loves, the desires of the mind. The mind, the active intelligence, as we know, can establish ends, can aspire to purposes. These aspirations are mental ideals.” “Each such intellectual ideal, though it satisfies the intellectual love in part, impels the love to create still greater ones which bring increasing intellectual satisfaction. Whereas physical love, if indulged too frequently, may become satiated, intellectual loves ever increase the enjoyment they provide the mind of man. The ideals of the intellectual nature of man are knowledge and accomplishment. The intellect must become married to these ideals if it is to experience normalcy, regardless of what loves and gratifications man may have physically.” “What do the Rosicrucians say of love? From a Rosicrucian viewpoint, a rational approach to love is necessary. They realize, of course, that love is not merely an intellectual experience; but, on the other hand, they also realize that it is essential to understand the causes of love, so as to be able to produce the most lasting effect. First, they say that basically, all love is desire. It is a yearning or an appetite, if you will, for that which brings us pleasure. No one has ever loved that which brings pain, suffering, misfortune, or torment. Consequently, Rosicrucians contend that love is the desire for harmony. However, love of that which would be harmonious only to the physical senses, would leave certain other loves unrequited. The love of the intellect for the realization of its ideals would be neglected. The love of the emotional self would be forgotten, leaving it torn with fears, perhaps. The love of the spiritual self to express its sentiments psychically would also be submerged, if we were to concentrate on a love which brings harmony to the physical senses alone. Only as we experience the harmony of our whole being, all aspects of ourselves, do we experience absolute love, complete satisfaction. This absolute love is found in the health of the body and in its desire to maintain itself. It consists also of the love to exercise the creative powers of the mind and the love to express the spiritual values, such as compassion and self-sacrifice. The unity of these three loves, then, results in that great Rosicrucian ideal, Peace Profound.”

Selections from Writings of Shoghi Effendi (vegetarian): “The Promised Day Is Come,” Part 2 of 2

“‘Bestir yourselves, O people,’ is, on the one hand, the ominous warning sounded by Bahá’u’lláh Himself, ‘in anticipation of the days of Divine Justice, for the promised hour is now come.’ ‘Abandon that which ye possess, and seize that which God, Who layeth low the necks of men, hath brought. Know ye of a certainty that if ye turn not back from that which ye have committed, chastisement will overtake you on every side, and ye shall behold things more grievous than that which ye beheld aforetime.’ And again: ‘We have fixed a time for you, O people! If ye fail, at the appointed hour, to turn towards God, He, verily, will lay hold on you.’ And again: ‘God assuredly dominates the lives of them that wronged Us, and is well aware of their doings. He will most certainly lay hold on them for their sins.’ And finally: ‘O ye peoples of the world! Know verily that an unforeseen calamity is following you and that grievous retribution awaiteth you. Think not the deeds ye have committed have been blotted from My sight. By My Beauty! All your doings hath My pen graven with open characters upon tablets of golden stone.’ ‘The whole Earth,’ Bahá’u’lláh, on the other hand, forecasting the bright future in store for a world now wrapt in darkness, emphatically asserts, ‘is now in a state of pregnancy. The day is approaching when it will have yielded its noblest fruits, when from it will have sprung forth the loftiest trees, the most enchanting blossoms, the most heavenly blessings.’ ‘The time is approaching when every created thing will have cast its burden. Glorified be God Who hath vouchsafed this grace that encompasses all things, whether seen or unseen!’ ‘These great oppressions,’ He, moreover, foreshadowing humanity’s Golden Age, has written, ‘are preparing it for the advent of the Most Great Justice.’ This Most Great Justice is indeed the Justice upon which the structure of the Most Great Peace can alone, and must eventually, rest, while the Most Great Peace will, in turn, usher in that Most Great, that World Civilization which shall remain forever associated with Him Who beareth the Most Great Name.” “‘We verily,’ He Himself has testified, ‘have not fallen short of Our duty to exhort men, and to deliver that whereunto I was bidden by God, the Almighty, the All-Praised. Had they hearkened unto Me, they would have beheld the earth another earth.’ And again: ‘Is there any excuse left for anyone in this Revelation? No, by God, the Lord of the Mighty Throne! My signs have encompassed the earth, and My power enveloped all mankind, and yet the people are wrapped in a strange sleep!’”

God’s Mercy and Truth is in Everything: From The Guide for the Perplexed by Maimonides (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

00:13:56

God’s Mercy and Truth is in Everything: From The Guide for the Perplexed by Maimonides (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Maimonides, also known as HaRambam, or Rabbi Moses ben Maimon, was a notable medieval Jewish philosopher, astronomer, physician, and intellectual figure. Famous works by Maimonides include “Mishne Torah,” a commentary on the Talmud, and “The Guide for the Perplexed,” philosophical discussions regarding theological matters. Today, we will share the Rabbi Moses ben Maimon’s insightful guidance on the spiritual challenges one may face. “The Guide for the Perplexed” is a book of theology that holds logical explanations on a variety of topics. We will now read excerpts from Part 3, Chapters 11 and 12. “All the great evils which men cause to each other because of certain intentions, desires, opinions, or religious principles, are likewise due to non-existence, because they originate in ignorance, which is absence of wisdom.” “If men possessed wisdom, which stands in the same relation to the form of man as the sight to the eye, they would not cause any injury to themselves or to others; for the knowledge of Truth removes hatred and quarrels, and prevents mutual injuries.” “This state of society is promised to us by the prophet in the words: ‘And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb,’ etc.; ‘and the cow and the bear shall feed together,’ etc.; and ‘the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp,’ etc. The prophet also points out what will be the cause of this change; for he says that hatred, quarrel, and fighting will come to an end, because men will then have a true knowledge of God. ‘They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the Earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.’ Note it.” “For an ignorant man believes that the whole universe only exists for him; as if nothing else required any consideration. If, therefore, anything happens to him contrary to his expectation, he at once concludes that the whole universe is evil. If, however, he would take into consideration the whole universe, form an idea of it, and comprehend what a small portion he is of the Universe, he will find the truth. For it is clear that persons who have fallen into this widespread error as regards the multitude of evils in the world, do not find the evils among the angels, the spheres and stars, the elements, and that which is formed of them, namely, minerals and plants, or in the various species of living beings, but only in some individual instances of mankind.”

From the Secret Doctrine: Cosmogenesis - The Seven Creations, Part 1 of 2

From the Secret Doctrine: Cosmogenesis - The Seven Creations, Part 1 of 2

The 19th-century Russian esotericist Helena Petrovna von Hahn, more popularly known as Madame Blavatsky or H.P.B., came from a noble family in Ukraine. As a child, Madame Blavatsky would often have visions and displayed clairvoyance as well as other metaphysical phenomena. Years later, she traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East studying under various teachers and Sufi saints. While in London, United Kingdom, she met one special teacher, an Indian yogi named Master Morya, who later directed her to go to New York in the United States. Once there, she founded the Theosophical Society in 1875 with other like-minded individuals. Madame Blavatsky wrote several important books on Theosophy, including “Isis Unveiled,” “The Secret Doctrine,” “The Key to Theosophy,” and “The Voice of the Silence.” “The Secret Doctrine” explains the origin and evolution of the universe and of humanity through an account of "Root Races" dating back millions of years. Although the writer of “The Secret Doctrine,” Madame Blavatsky often expressed that she was only the compiler of ancient wisdom that was passed on to her. The true authors of the work were her teachers, the Mahatmas, or Great Souls, who were the guardians of the Secret Wisdom of the ages. We will now share with you “From the Secret Doctrine: Cosmogenesis – The Seven Creations.”“The Seven Creations are found in almost every Purana. They are all preceded by what Wilson translates as the ‘Indiscrete Principle,’ Absolute Spirit, independent of any relation with objects of sense. They are: (1) Mahattattva, the Universal Soul, Infinite Intellect, or Divine Mind; (2) Tanmâtras, Bhûta or Bhûtasarga, Elemental Creation the first differentiation of Universal Indiscrete Substance; (3) Indriya or Aindriyaka, Organic Evolution. ‘These three were the Prâkrita Creations, the developments of indiscrete nature, preceded by the Indiscrete Principle’; (4) Mukhya, ‘the Fundamental Creation (of perceptible things) was that of inanimate bodies’; (5) Tairyagyonya or Tiryaksrotas, was that of animals; (6) Ûrdhvasrotas, or that of divinities; (7) Arvâksrotas, was that of man. This is the order given in the exoteric texts. According to esoteric teaching, there are seven Primary, and seven Secondary ‘Creations’; the former being the Forces self-evolving from the one causeless Force; the latter showing the manifested Universe emanating from the already differentiated divine Elements.”

The Apocryphon of John (vegetarian): From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library, Part 1 of 2

The Apocryphon of John (vegetarian): From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library, Part 1 of 2

The Nag Hammadi Library is a collection of early Christian and Gnostic manuscripts, also called codices, discovered in 1945, near the Upper Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi. The general dating of the books varies from the 2nd to the 4th century. The collection includes 13 ancient books containing over 50 spiritual texts. Let us now read from Codex II, “The Apocryphon of John” from the Nag Hammadi Library. “‘He is the invisible Spirit, of Whom it is not right to think of Him as a god, or something similar. For He is more than a god, since there is nothing above Him, for no one lords it over Him. For He does not exist in something inferior to Him, since everything exists in Him. For it is He Who establishes Himself. He is eternal, since He does not need anything. For He is total perfection. He did not lack anything, that He might be completed by it; rather He is always completely perfect in Light. He is illimitable, since there is no one prior to Him to set limits to Him. He is unsearchable, since there exists no one prior to Him to examine Him. He is immeasurable, since there was no one prior to Him to measure Him. He is invisible, since no one saw Him. He is eternal, since He exists eternally. He is ineffable, since no one was able to comprehend Him to speak about Him. He is unnamable, since there is no one prior to Him to give Him a name. “‘How am I to speak with you about Him? His aeon is indestructible, at rest and existing in silence, reposing (and) being prior to everything. For He is the Head of all the aeons, and it is He Who gives them strength in His goodness. For we know not the ineffable things, and we do not understand what is immeasurable, except for Him Who came forth from Him, namely (from) the Father. For it is He who told it to us alone. For it is He who looks at Himself in His Light which surrounds Him, namely the Spring of the water of Life. And it is He Who gives to all the aeons and in every way, (and) Who gazes upon His image which He sees in the Spring of the Spirit. It is He Who puts His desire in His Water-light which is in the Spring of the pure Light-water which surrounds Him.’”

Selections from “Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry, Volume I,” by Soamiji Maharaj (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

00:15:44

Selections from “Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry, Volume I,” by Soamiji Maharaj (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

“Radhasoami has assumed human form in this world. As Guru (Supreme Guide and Preceptor), He awakens Jivas (living beings). Those who understand and follow His teachings, are blessed with His company and association. By attending Satsang of Radhasoami, they enjoy true bliss and become contented. They love the Guru as a Chakor (bird enamored of the moon) loves the moon. Without Guru, they have no rest or peace even for a moment. Constantly uneasy lie their souls. When fortunately they get Darshan of Guru, they are supremely exhilarated and feel elated like a tender calf in the company of the mother-cow. The gurumukhs (special devotees) who have developed such an intense love for Guru, are taken in His special protection. They are rendered forgetful of their attachment to the body and of the pleasures of the senses, in a moment. The form of Guru is enshrined in their hearts. Really, they are with Guru all the 24 hours. Those who perform such a devotion, attain the bliss of Nam. They repeat the Holy Name in the manner that a thirst maddened Papiha (Rain-lover bird) cries for Swanti rain. When, by constant repetition of Nam, their Surat (Spirit) is awakened, they hear Shabd internally. They attain Guru’s Shabd (access to Trikuti (Three Prominences)), penetrate the Shabds of Sunn, Sat Lok, Alakh Lok and Agam Lok (Heavenly Realms), and finally secure admittance into Nij Pad (True Abode), the Radhasoami Dham. They get Poora Ghar (final abode of rest) and attain Poori Gati (perfect salvation). Nothing remains to be said now as there is nothing beyond, Radhasoami being the Highest Region.” “The Holy Word Radhasoami comprises five letters of Hindi alphabets, and ten of Persian. It discloses the mystery of Five Holy Shabds or Names, and grants ascension to ten regions.” “Radha is the name of the Dhun (Reverberation) and Soami is the Shabd (Sound). Know that Dhun and Shabd are one and the same, like water and its wave. Make no distinction between the two.” “Radha is the lover and Soami the beloved. Radhasoami sings of the union of Surat and Shabd.” “Radha is the Name of the Adi (Primal) Surat and Soami is the Adi Shabd. Radha and Soami form an inseparable pair, like Surat and Shabd. Know that both Radha and Soami are one-word: Radhasoami. As Surat dallies with Shabd, so does Radha abide in close union with Soami. Know that Radha and Soami are two, namely, Surat and Shabd. But they unite as one in Sat Lok (the fifth Spiritual Region).” “Radhasoami Nam whoever recites, gets across the ocean of life, troubles vanish, bliss abides, and completely gone is all strife. Such is this unfathomable Name that to none its secrets are known; he who comes to know the same is no more on the earth born.”

Enlightenment: From The Way of Initiation by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

“He who is in search of occult knowledge must fortify himself throughout the whole course of his efforts by the understanding, that after persevering for some time, he may have made suitable progress without becoming conscious of it in the precise way which he had expected. He who does not remember this, is likely to lose heart, and in a little while to abandon his efforts altogether. The mental powers and faculties about to be developed are at first, of the most subtle kind, and their nature differs entirely from the conceptions of them, which may be formed in the student’s mind. He has been accustomed to occupy himself with the physical world alone, and the mental and astral worlds seem to elude his gaze, and baffle his conceptions. It is, therefore, not remarkable if, at first, he fails to realize the new forces, mental and astral, which are developing in his own being. This is why it is dangerous to enter the path leading to occult knowledge without experienced guidance.” “The teacher can see the progress made by the pupil, long before the latter becomes conscious of it for himself. He sees the delicate organs of spiritual vision beginning to form themselves, before the pupil is aware of their existence, and a great part of the duties of the teacher consists in perpetual watchfulness, lest the disciple lose confidence, patience, and perseverance, before he becomes conscious of his own progress. The teacher, as we know, can confer upon the student no powers, which are not already latent within him, and his sole function is to assist in the awakening of slumbering faculties. But he may be a pillar of strength to him who strives to penetrate through darkness into the light.” “There are many who leave the occult path soon after setting foot upon it, because they are not immediately conscious of their own progress. And even when higher experiences begin to dawn upon the seeker, he is apt to regard them as illusions, because he had anticipated them quite differently. He loses courage, either because he regards these first experiences as of no value, or because they appear so insignificant that he has no hope of their leading to any appreciable results within a measurable time. Courage and self-confidence are the two lamps, which must never be allowed to burn themselves out on the pathway to the occult. He who cannot patiently repeat an exercise, which has failed for an apparently unlimited number of times, will never travel far.”

Enlightenment: From The Way of Initiation 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 quench our spiritual thirst with a reading from Dr. Rudolf Steiner’s chapter “Enlightenment,” from his book “The Way of Initiation.” “Enlightenment is the result of very simple processes. Here, too, it is a matter of developing certain feelings and thoughts which are dormant within all men, but must be awakened. Only he who carries out these simple processes with complete patience, continuously and strenuously, can be led by them to the reception of inner illumination.” “If a man has once acquired the faculty of seeing with spiritual eyes, he sooner or later, meets with the beings here mentioned, some of them higher, some lower than man himself; beings who never entered into physical existence.” “When he has advanced thus far, the way to a great deal lies open before him; but it is inadvisable to proceed further without an experienced guide. Indeed, for all that has here been described, such experienced guidance is desirable, and he who has the endurance to fulfil the elementary conditions of enlightenment, will assuredly seek and discover his guide. Under all circumstances, it is important to give warning, and he who will not heed it had better leave untrodden all the steps of occult science.” “In our time, the path to occult science is sought after by many. It is sought in various ways, and many dangerous and even objectionable modes are practiced. Therefore, it is that those who know of the truth and dangers concerning these things, have allowed a greater portion of the occult training and the necessary warning to be published.”
