Selections from Mahatma Gandhi Ji’s Book “Pathway to God” – Meditation and Dedication, Part 2 of 2

Odată ce sunteţi frumoşi în interior, oamenii vă văd frumoşi şi la exterior, aşa este în mod normal, da! Dar continuaţi cu practica voastră. Viaţa voastră devine din ce în ce mai bună, nu mai trebuie să vă spun. Eu vă spun doar că în cazul că cineva nu vă cunoaşte încă, ei pot verifica cu voi. Viaţa voastră este un exemplu de iubire şi de binecuvântare spirituală, nu mai trebuie să

Selections from Mahatma Gandhi Ji’s Book “Pathway to God” – Meditation and Dedication, Part 1 of 2

Eu sunt doar una, dar cu toţii simţiţi că vă iubesc numai pe voi, iubire destulă, sau am iubire destulă pentru toţi. Este din cauză că noi practicăm calea iubirii, şi noi se întâmplă să ştim cum să avem suficient. La fel cum ştim să economisim bani să devenim mai bogaţi, nu pentru că voi câştigaţi bani mai mulţi, dar nu neapărat, însă economisiţi mai mult.

The End Times – From the Book of Revelation, Holy Bible: Part 2 of 2

Voi ştiţi, natura sufletului nu este că „eu sunt aici şi am un suflet aici”, nu este aşa! Sufletul meu este mai mare decât doar ce este aici. Eu aş putea fi peste tot aici, poate totul sunt eu, dar arată diferit. Nu este ca şi cum, bine: „Dumnezeu este unul şi toţi sunt una cu Dumnezeu”, nu în sensul acesta. Este în sensul că o persoană poate avea un suflet mare care cuprinde mul

Meditaţia nu schimbă lumea, vă shimbă pe voi, şi atunci, dacă fiecare se schimbă ei înşişi, lumea ajunge liniştită. Noi facem război pentru că noi nu suntem împăcaţi cu noi înşine, pentru că nu putem să ştim că persoana de lângă noi este Dumnezeu, nu putem realiza că noi suntem Dumnezeu şi nu putem realiza că cel pe care-l ucidem, îl împuşcăm, îl torturăm, este Dumnezeu la fel, şi de

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

Nu sunt aici să vă demonstrez că sunt bună sau rea. Sunt aici să vă spun că voi sunteţi minunaţi, voi sunteţi buni, şi dacă urmaţi instrucţiunile mele, veţi simiţi, veţi vedea, veţi şti că voi sunteţi minunaţi, voi sunteţi buni ... Veţi simţi că voi sunteţi minunaţi, că îl cunoaşteţi pe Dumnezeu.

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 “Harmony of All Religions” – Chapter 7: Santmat – The Path of the Masters, Part 2 of 2

00:12:47

Selections from “Harmony of All Religions” – Chapter 7: Santmat – The Path of the Masters, Part 2 of 2

We will now share with you excerpts from “Chapter 7: Santmat” of the book “Harmony of All Religions.”“By practicing devotion through these four techniques — Manas Japa (recitation of the divine name), Manas Dhyana (focus on the divine form), Dristi Sadhana (focus on the infinitesimal point), and Nadanusandhana Yoga (concentration on the inner divine sounds) — the practitioner consecutively transcends the realms of darkness, light, and sound which cloak the Supreme Truth — the Divine Reality. Only in a human body an individual soul is able to achieve unity with the Divine.” “Lying, stealing, intake of intoxicating substances, adultery, and violence (including harming other beings) are the five sins to be avoided. Eating meat or fish is also considered to be a form of violence and should be avoided. The aspirants of Santmat must abstain from these vices.” “The following are considered to be the requirements for the attainment liberation: Trust and belief in the Divine; commitment to seek the Divine within; devotion and service to a sadguru, spiritual Master; satsang, listening to the teaching and spiritual discourse including study of the teaching of the Saints and the scriptures; and dhyana, diligent meditation practice.” “When viewed on the surface, the teachings of various Saints sometimes seem to contradict one another [or even to contradict the principles of the Upanishads]. But upon deeper analysis, it becomes apparent that there is an unbreakable unity in the spiritual views of all Saints. Saints have appeared in different times and in different places, and Their followers name Their tradition in respect to the particular Saint [for example, Kabir Panth and Dadu Panth]. The apparent differences can be attributed to variations in time, place, language, and labels given to the views, but in reality, they are the same. When sectarianism and the forms of the particular time or place of the teachings of a Saint are removed, the basic principles of Santmat are in unity.” “In the “Bhagavad Gita,” Lord Krishna states: ‘Whatever is Truth always exists and is never non-existent. That which is non-Truth has no existence whatsoever.’” “Maharishi Mehi Paramahans Ji asks his aspirants to perform both kinds of satsang: ‘Each day strive to do both kinds of satsang: inner and outer. Outer satsang is listening to the teachings of great saints and studying the sacred texts. Inner satsang is the practice of one-pointed meditation.’”

Selections from “Harmony of All Religions” – Chapter 7: Santmat – The Path of the Masters, Part 1 of 2

Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj is a renowned Saint who was the fourth Guru in the Sant Mat lineage of great spiritual Masters that include Sant Tulsi Sahib, Baba Devi Sahab, and Maharishi Mehi Paramhans Ji Maharaj. “Harmony of All Religions” (“Sarvadharma Samanvy”), by Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj, explores the inner Heavenly Light and Sound meditation practice as it is found in the great world religions of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikh, Islam, the Judeo-Christian tradition, and the Sant Mat tradition. We will now share with you excerpts from “Chapter 7: Santmat” of the book “Harmony of All Religions.” “Santmat, the Way of Sages, is also referred to as the path of Saints, the teachings of Saints, and as the conviction of Saints and Sages. It is neither a new religion nor a new group of an existing religion. Santmat is not a new philosophical conviction, or even a new interpretation of a religious tradition. Santmat was not founded by any particular Sage or Saint, although it respects all equally. Further, Santmat represents the eternal wisdom and method and is in accordance with the ancient Vedas.” “Santmat is a pure spiritual tradition. The teachings of Santmat integrate devotion to God with inner subtle knowledge and yogic disciplines. It has been spoken about by many of the Saints.” “Santmat proclaims that the teachings of Saints and the essential knowledge expounded by the Vedas are identical. As well, the Sages and great Saints of ancient times taught the same message about the Divine as the Saints of today. These teachings of the Saints are the same as the knowledge found in the Vedas. The present need is to examine these statements closely and to experience the Truth within.” “However, as the Saints tell us, even if we acquire all these physical possessions — status, fame, or wealth — we are still unable to attain true peace, joy and happiness. The peace we seek is not found in the outer material world but only in the inner world of the soul.”

Obedience and Righteousness before the Lord: Selection from the Holy Tanakh’s Book of Samuel, Part 2 of 2

00:16:55

Obedience and Righteousness before the Lord: Selection from the Holy Tanakh’s Book of Samuel, Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with the selection of Chapters 18 and 24 from the Book of Samuel in the Holy Tanakh. The story told here, which includes King Saul and the future king of Israel King David, is a story of how when blessed with God’s presence, the soul is always protected in the strength of benevolence and virtues. “And David went out; wherever Saul would send him, he would succeed; accordingly, Saul appointed him over the soldiers, and he was pleasing in the eyes of all the people, and also in the eyes of Saul’s servants.” “And Saul feared David, for the Lord was with him, while He had turned away from Saul. And Saul removed him from (being) with him, and made him for himself a captain over a thousand, and he went out and came in before the people. And David was successful in all his ways; and the Lord was with him. And Saul saw that he was very successful, and he feared him.” “And Saul said to David, ‘Behold, my elder daughter, Merab. I shall give her to you as a wife. But, be a warrior for me, and wage the wars of the Lord.’” “And David said to Saul, ‘Why should you listen to the words of a man, saying, “Behold, David seeks your harm”?’ Behold, this day your eyes have seen how the Lord delivered you today into my hand in the cave, and (one) said to kill you, but (my soul) had pity on you, and I said, ‘I shall not stretch forth my hand against my lord, for he is the Lord’s anointed.’ And Father, see! Also, see the skirt of your coat in my hand, for in that I severed the skirt of your coat and I did not kill you, know and see that there is neither evil nor transgression in my hand, and I have not sinned against you, but you are stalking my soul to take it.” “May the Lord judge between me and you, and may the Lord avenge me of you, but my hand shall not be upon you. As says the proverb of the ancient one; ‘From the wicked comes forth wickedness,’ and my hand shall not be upon you.” “And he said to David, ‘You are more righteous than I, for you have repaid me with goodness, while I have repaid you with evil. And you have shown today how you have dealt well with me, how the Lord delivered me into your hand, and you did not kill me. For when a man finds his enemy, does he send him away safely? And may the Lord repay you with goodness for what you have done to me on this day.”

Obedience and Righteousness before the Lord: Selection from the Holy Tanakh’s Book of Samuel, Part 1 of 2

Judaism’s history begins around 2000 BCE with the Covenant between God (Elohim) and Abraham. Over a thousand years later, as the Jewish faithful Believe, God's (Elohim’s) laws and commandments were revealed to Prophet Moses on Mount Sinai, forming the Torah, which is the first part of the Hebrew Bible. The Hebrew Bible, or Tanakh, and the ancient writings of the Talmud, embody the beliefs and practices of Judaism. Present in every aspect of the religion is a single, omniscient, and compassionate God (Elohim). The Holy Tanakh’s Book of Samuel is the third book in the Neviim (Prophets), and the second section of the Holy Tanakh. Filled with succinct messages through the depicted stories, the Book of Samuel is dedicated to giving the right directions for those who seek their way to God. Today, we will read excerpts from Chapters 15, 16 and 18 from the Book of Samuel in the Holy Tanakh. The chosen stories in these chapters enlighten us on the importance of obeying God’s commandments, as a key to a life of righteousness and goodness. “And Samuel said to Saul, ‘The Lord sent me to anoint you to be king over His people, over Israel…’ The word of the Lord came to Samuel, saying, ‘I regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned back from following Me, and he has not fulfilled My words.’” “‘Has the Lord (as much) desire in burnt offerings and peace-offerings, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than an offering; to hearken (is better) than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim. Since you rejected the word of the Lord, He has rejected you from being a king.’ “And Saul said to Samuel, ‘I have sinned, for I transgressed the Lord’s command, and your words, for I feared the people, and I hearkened to their voice. And now, forgive now my sin, and return with me, and I shall prostrate myself to the Lord.’” “And Samuel said to Saul, ‘I shall not return with you, for you have rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord has rejected you from being a king over Israel.’” “And the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Look not upon his appearance, or the height of his stature, for I have rejected him, for it is not as man sees, (what is visible) to the eyes, while the Lord sees into the heart.’”

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

00:17:22

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.”

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.”

Excerpts from The Flower Ornament Scripture, Book 9 – Awakening by Light, Part 2 of 2

Excerpts from The Flower Ornament Scripture, Book 9 – Awakening by Light, Part 2 of 2

In today’s show, we will share excerpts from book nine of The Flower Ornament Scripture entitled Awakening by Light, which is an expanding vision unfolding within the light from Buddha's feet. “Then the light beams passed ten billion worlds and illumined in all ten directions a hundred billion worlds, a trillion worlds, a hundred trillion worlds, a quadrillion worlds, a hundred quadrillion worlds, a quintillion worlds, a hundred quintillion worlds; in this way countless, unquantifiable, boundless, incomparable, uncountable, unaccountable, unthinkable, immeasurable, unspeakable numbers of worlds, to the utmost extent of the realm of space of the cosmos, in all ten directions, were likewise illumined. In all of those worlds were a hundred billion continents called Jambudvipa, and so on, including a hundred billion Heavens of the ultimate of form - everything in all those realms was clearly revealed. In each of the Jambudvipa continents the Buddha was seen sitting on a lotus bank lion throne surrounded by as many enlightening beings as atoms in ten Buddha-lands; and in each one, due to the spiritual force of the Buddha, a great enlightening being from each of the ten directions, each accompanied by as many enlightening beings as atoms in ten Buddha-lands, came to the Buddha; those great enlightening beings were called Manjushri, etc. , the lands they came from were called Golden, etc., and the Buddhas they served were called Immutable Knowledge, etc. Then the Manjushris in all those places, each in the presence of the Buddha in that place, all simultaneously spoke out, saying these verses: In one instant observing measureless eons Without going, coming, or dwelling, Thus comprehending the events of past, present, and future, Buddhas transcend expedients and fulfill ten powers. With incomparable good repute in all quarters, Forever out of trouble, always rejoicing, They go to all lands To explain such a teaching for all. For the benefit of beings, they supported the enlightened, Attaining a comparable result, according to their will; Readily acknowledging all truths, They reveal spiritual powers everywhere. From their first offerings to the enlightened their minds were flexible and patient; They entered deep meditative concentration and observed the nature of things. Exhorting all beings to aspire to enlightenment, Through this they speedily attained the unexcelled reward. Who seeks truth everywhere with undivided mind To cultivate virtues to full maturity, Eliminating all duality of being and nonbeing: Such people truly see the Buddha. Going to all lands in all directions, Expounding the sublime teaching for the welfare of the many, Abiding in reality without any wavering: Such people's virtues are the same as Buddha.”

Excerpts from The Flower Ornament Scripture, Book 9 – Awakening by Light, Part 1 of 2

The Avatamsaka Sutra or Flower Garland Sutra or Flower Adornment Sutra or Flower Ornament Scripture or Huáyán Jīng is one of the most sacred Buddhist books. It was written in stages, starting from about 500 years after the passing on of the Buddha. This Sutra is a compilation of a number of originally independent scriptures that were combined probably in Central Asia during the late third or the fourth century. In total, there are thirty-nine books in this single volume. This Sutra is seen as the doorway into the Realm of Reality, in which enlightened beings witness reality once their vision is free of egocentric addictions. A cosmos of infinite realms upon realms, mutually containing one another is described in the Sutra manifesting the vision that The World Honored One first obtained under the tree of enlightenment. In today’s show, we will share excerpts from book nine of The Flower Ornament Scripture entitled Awakening by Light, which is an expanding vision unfolding within the light from Buddha's feet. “THEN THE BUDDHA, from beneath the wheel-marks on his feet, emitted a hundred billion light beams, illuminating this billion-world universe, with its four hundred billion continents, a hundred billion oceans, a hundred billion surrounding mountain ranges, a hundred billion enlightening beings being born, a hundred billion enlightening beings leaving home, a hundred billion Buddhas realizing true enlightenment, a hundred billion Buddhas teaching, a hundred billion Buddhas passing away,” “As in this place, the Buddha, the World Honored One, was seen sitting on a lotus bank lion throne, surrounded by as many enlightening beings as atoms in ten Buddha-lands, so also sat the hundred billion Buddhas in a hundred billion continents. In each case, because of the spiritual force of the Buddhas, in each of the ten directions was a great enlightening being, each with a company of as many enlightening beings as atoms in ten Buddha-lands, who came to the Buddha.” “Then the light beams passed a million worlds and illuminated a billion worlds in each of the ten directions. In all of those worlds were a hundred billion continents called Jambudvipa, and so on, including a hundred billion Heavens of the ultimate of form - everything in all those realms was clearly revealed. In each of the Jambudvipa continents the Buddha was seen sitting on a lotus bank lion throne surrounded by as many enlightening beings as atoms in ten Buddha-lands; and in each one, due to the spiritual force of the Buddha, a great enlightening being from each of the ten directions, each accompanied by as many enlightening beings as atoms in ten Buddha-lands, came to the Buddha; those great enlightening beings were called Manjushri, etc., the lands they came from were called Golden, etc., and the Buddhas they served were called Immutable Knowledge, etc.”

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.”

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

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.”

Selection from Signs of Agni Yoga: Heart – by Spiritual Messengers Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 1 of 2

The esteemed mystical and philosophical writers Nicholas Roerich and his wife Helena Roerich are two of the most influential spiritual thought leaders from Russia. They are recognized for founding a doctrine called Agni Yoga, also known as Living Ethics. Believed to be a synthesis of all yogas (spiritual disciplines), Agni Yoga focuses on the daily practice of Love, Beauty, and noble Action. And to the Roerichs, He was the inspiration behind all of their noble ideals for the world. Morya revealed messages of higher wisdom to Nicholas and Helena Roerich, which they recorded on paper and later gathered into a series of texts. We will now read a selection from one of Roerich’s series of volumes “Signs of Agni Yoga,” entitled “Heart.” “After our daily labors, let us gather in conversation about the heart. It will lead us through the earthly domains to the Subtle World and thereby bring us closer to the realm of Fire. “To see with the eyes of the heart; to hear the roar of the world with the ears of the heart; to peer into the future with the understanding of the heart; to remember past accumulations through the heart – that is how the aspirant must boldly advance on the path of ascent.” “The heart is a ss, but not a hall of idols. So, while We have nothing against the construction of a temple, fetishism or bazaars are unacceptable to Us. Likewise, when We talk about building a temple in the form of a heart, We do not have in mind a heart-shaped building; We are indicating the temple’s inner significance. A true temple cannot exist unless there is awareness of the infinite chain; similarly, the heart is in contact with all the sensations of the Cosmos.” “There is neither a day nor an hour when the world is free of danger! To discern the dangers, not two eyes are necessary but three, as shown on the Banner of the Lords. One should understand that the temple of the heart gives rise to an urgent sensation. It was no accident that the heart was marked with the sign of the cross. Indeed, the sign of the cross is an eternal companion of the temple of the heart.”

On the Good Red Road: Selections from “Black Elk Speaks,” Part 2 of 2

“Now the fifth Grandfather spoke, the oldest of them all, the Spirit of the Sky. ‘My boy,’ he said, ‘I have sent for you and you have come. My power you shall see!’ He stretched his arms and turned into a spotted eagle hovering. ‘Behold,’ he said, ‘all the wings of the air shall come to you, and they and the winds and the stars shall be like relatives. You shall go across the Earth with my power.’” “Now I knew the sixth Grandfather was about to speak, he who was the Spirit of the Earth, and I saw that he was very old, but more as men are old.” “I stared at him, for it seemed I knew him somehow; and as I stared, he slowly changed, for he was growing backwards into youth, and when he had become a boy, I knew that he was myself with all the years that would be mine at last. When he was old again, he said: ‘My boy, have courage, for my power shall be yours, and you shall need it, for your nation on the Earth will have great troubles. Come.’” “You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round. In the old days when we were a strong and happy people, all our power came to us from the sacred hoop of the nation, and so long as the hoop was unbroken, the people flourished. The flowering tree was the living center of the hoop, and the circle of the four quarters nourished it. The East gave peace and light, the South gave warmth, the West gave rain, and the North with its cold and mighty wind gave strength and endurance. This knowledge came to us from the outer world with our religion. Everything the Power of the World does is done in a circle. The sky is round, and I have heard that the Earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars.” “The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same, and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.” Throughout history, from culture to culture, there's a common thread in every spiritual belief. It is the understanding that we can only fulfill our higher purpose on Earth by letting go of the ego and being united with the God, or the Great Spirit.

On the Good Red Road: Selections from “Black Elk Speaks,” Part 1 of 2

Black Elk was born in 1863 as a member of the Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe, whose people lived in today's Wyoming in the western United States. Starting at age nine, Black Elk, was led by inner visions to protect both the indigenous lands and his people. His ultimate symbolic mission was to bring back the Tree of Life so that it bloomed, thus restoring his own nation and leading the Lakota people to walk the Red Road, the road of good. Black Elk was revered by his fellow tribes’ people as a holy man who could also heal injury and sickness through the grace of God, or the Great Spirit. In 1930, Black Elk agreed to be interviewed by John Neihardt, an American writer and poet. Mr. Neihardt later published the book “Black Elk Speaks,” a vivid and moving account of Lakota life and spiritual traditions. “It is the story of all life that is holy and is good to tell, and of us two-leggeds sharing in it with the four-leggeds and the wings of the air and all green things; for these are children of one mother and their father is one Spirit.” “‘Your Grandfathers all over the world are having a council, and they have called you here to teach you.’ His voice was very kind, but I shook all over with fear now, for I knew that these were not old men, but the Powers of the World. And the first was the Power of the West; the second, of the North; the third, of the East; the fourth, of the South; the fifth, of the Sky; the sixth, of the Earth.” “‘Younger brother,’ he said, ‘with the powers of the four quarters you shall walk, a relative. Behold, the living center of a nation I shall give you, and with it many you shall save.’” “‘It shall stand in the center of the nation’s circle,’ said the Grandfather, ‘a cane to walk with and a people’s heart; and by your powers you shall make it blossom.’” “‘From where the giant lives (the North) to where you always face (the South) the Red Road goes, the road of good,’ the Grandfather said, ‘and on it shall your nation walk.’”
