Selections from Writings of Shoghi Effendi (vegetarian): “The Promised Day Is Come,” Part 1 of 2

To preserve the holy Bahá’í teachings, Lord Bahá’u’lláh established a Covenant, or line of succession, that appointed His Son, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, as the successor Guardian, followed by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s grandson, Shoghi Effendi. Lord Bahá’u’lláh also ordained the establishment of a Universal House of Justice. During his lifetime, Shoghi Effendi was the appointed Guardian for the Baháʼí teachings. Today, w

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.”

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

00:13:58

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

We will now continue with the Venerated Master Morya’s profound and uplifting messages given to his disciples, and through them, to the world. “I rejoice in the smile undimmed by approaching fate. I shall grant the power to create good not with money but with spirit. Full of travail is your life, but vast are the depths of your happiness in the future victory of the spirit. Banish anger, and the path to Us will be easier. Not wrath, but ardent rapture creates. Be imperturbable — your illusions damage your health, but if you have faith in Me, know that you are guarded by the Care and Shield of Morya. Morya is aware of your hardships; a steep ascent is always difficult. To overcome fate requires fortitude. Be not downcast, for you have many times crossed these rapids.” “Be not dismayed at the Teacher’s criticisms. Pupils should rejoice at every message. Contemplate the spiritual guidance of One Teacher. Your spirit presses onward; At the Gates I will await you. My Breath shall warm your hands, and I will guide you along the mountain path to the Temple. Love Me and your power will be multiplied and your strength doubled. Your spirit transports your body beyond the Earth. You must rejoice in the ascension through pure teachings. There is no love greater than love.” “Naught occurs by accident. My Power is with you. We can change Our appearance. Through faith increase your strength.” “Love Me — your Spiritual Teacher. Your destiny is to bring the inextinguishable Light to ardent hearts. Realize the joy of fighting for My Cause. Easy is destruction, but you must build wisely. Being able to help is a great happiness.” “In the Universe all things are but a reflection of the Divine, and in each spark of light the Divine Energy is at play. Light unto all of you!” “Hearken to the Celestial Song, and when on the summits of the mountains pine not for the flowers in the valley. I rejoice in your striving for creation. Miracles are created in life amidst action and in tensed harmony. Dreams are realized not in fairy tales but through happy communion with the Ways of the Blessed Ones. The Teacher is near you at every moment of your creative labor. Learn — and teach.”

Stoicism as a Way of Life - Selection from Epictetus’ Enchiridion, Part 2 of 2

00:14:07

Stoicism as a Way of Life - Selection from Epictetus’ Enchiridion, Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue with a selection from Epictetus’ teachings, as recorded by his student Arrian, in the book “The Enchiridion.” The Stoic sage gives more guidelines on how to live a life of freedom and one in harmony with nature. “If you would improve, be content to be thought foolish and dull with regard to externals. Do not desire to be thought to know anything; and though you should appear to others to be somebody, distrust yourself. For be assured, it is not easy at once to keep your will in harmony with nature and to secure externals; but while you are absorbed in the one, you must of necessity neglect the other.” “A master is he who is able to confer or remove whatever that man seeks or shuns. Whoever then would be free, let him wish nothing, let him decline nothing, which depends on others; else he must necessarily be a slave.” “And if you do not so much as take the things which are set before you, but are able even to forego them, then you will not only be worthy to feast with the gods, but to rule with them also. For, by thus doing, Diogenes and Heraclitus, and others like them, deservedly became divine, and were so recognized.” “As far as conversation goes, however, do not disdain to accommodate yourself to him and, if need be, to groan with him. Take heed, however, not to groan inwardly, too. ‘Remember that you are an actor in a drama of such sort as the Author chooses — if short, then in a short one; if long, then in a long one. If it be His pleasure that you should enact a poor man, or a cripple, or a ruler, or a private citizen, see that you act it well. For this is your business — to act well the given part, but to choose it belongs to another.’” “Now, for your part, do not have a supercilious look indeed, but keep steadily to those things which appear best to you, as one appointed by God to this particular station. For remember that, if you are persistent, those very persons who at first ridiculed will afterwards admire you. But if you are conquered by them, you will incur a double ridicule.”

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

00:09:18

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 “Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry, Volume I,” by Soamiji Maharaj (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

00:15:19

Selections from “Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry, Volume I,” by Soamiji Maharaj (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Venerated Soamiji Maharaj was born on August 25, 1818 in Agra of India. Soamiji Maharaj knew Sant Tulsi Sahib since a very early age, and studied with Him into adulthood. After Tulsi Sahib’s passing, Soamiji Maharaj meditated alone in a room for 15 years. Later, upon the request of His disciple, the Venerated Hazur Maharaj, He agreed to share the method of inner Heavenly Light and Sound with the general public. When Hazur Majaraj realized during a meditation that “not only is Radhasoami an ever-reverberating (inner Heavenly) Sound but also Soamiji Maharaj is Himself Radhasoami,” the faith became named Radhasoami Satsang. According to Soamiji Maharaj, there are three essentials of Radhasoami Satsang: first, a living Guru; second, Nam, or inner Heavenly Sound, and third Sang, or true Teachings. By satisfying these three principles, one can be liberated from the cycle of life and death. In today’s program, we will present the saintly teachings from Soamiji Maharaj’s book, “Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry, Volume I.” “Radhasoami Nam whoever recites, gets across the ocean of life; troubles vanish, bliss abides, and completely gone’s 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. By reciting Radhasoami Nam let thy life most fruitful be; this is the true and real Nam keep It innermost within thee. Wondrous is Soami’s grandeur; except Radha, the Spirit Prime, no one can see the splendor, supreme, spiritual, sublime. In form and state not manifest is Radhasoami Nam in that place; there none can reach and rest without His mercy and grace. I pay my obeisance before Radhasoami by whose grace and mercy, innumerable Jivas (living beings) are being awakened. I bow again and again before Sat Guru and before the Lotus Region and Satnam (True Name). He is the beginning of all, but Himself without a beginning. He is Anam (the Highest Deity) since times immemorial. He has come here from His august abode as Sant Incarnate. He has launched a boat in the ocean (of existence) to enable Jivas (living beings) to get across. He mercifully takes us in the boat.” “The secrets of that abode are revealed by perfect Guru. There resounds a wonderful melody of the Bin (harp). Beyond is the Darbar (sphere) of Alakh Purush (the Lord of the sixth Spiritual Region), which can only be perceived by Surat (or spirit entity). Above that is Agam Lok (Heavenly Realm) which is unique. Only Sant Surats (realized souls) enjoy that bliss. From there is visible the eternal terrace of the most marvelous mansion of the Supreme Father Radhasoami Dayal. My Surat (soul) is now in an exalted state of ecstasy; it has merged in Anami Purush (Supreme Being).”

A Night of Weeping and a Morning of Joy: From The Divine Plan of the Ages by Charles Taze Russell, Part 2 of 2

00:12:02

A Night of Weeping and a Morning of Joy: From The Divine Plan of the Ages by Charles Taze Russell, Part 2 of 2

We will now continue, as we learn more about the intriguing way Charles Taze Russell studied the Holy Bible, in an excerpt from Volume 1 of his “Studies in the Scriptures” entitled, “The Divine Plan of the Ages.” Pastor Russell points out how excerpts from the Scriptures, which, as if parts of a puzzle, present us with how the transition that we are going through today, might have been foretold… It is God’s loving glory that is prepared for His children, who are to participate in fulfilling His plan. “Truth-seekers should empty their vessels of the muddy waters of tradition and fill them at the fountain of Truth — God’s Word. And no religious teaching should have weight, except as it guides the Truth-seeker to that fountain.” “Nor should we suppose that prophecy was given merely to satisfy curiosity concerning the future. Its object evidently is to make the consecrated child of God acquainted with his Father’s plans, thus to enlist his interest and sympathy in the same plans, and to enable him to regard both the present and the future from God’s standpoint. When thus interested in the Lord’s work, he may serve with the spirit and with the understanding also; not as a servant merely, but as a child and heir. Revealing to such what shall be, counteracts the influence of what now is. The effect of careful study cannot be otherwise than strengthening to faith and stimulating to holiness.” “It is the privilege only of this class to walk in the pathway that shines more and more — to see not only the present unfoldings of God’s plan, but also things to come. While it is true that the path of each individual believer is a shining one, yet the special application of this statement is to the just (justified) as a class. Patriarchs, prophets, apostles and saints of the past and present have walked in its increasing light; and the light will continue to increase beyond the present — ‘unto the perfect day.’ It is one continuous path, and the one continuous and increasing light is the Divine Record, illuminating as it becomes due.” “And since Jesus’ day, yet more light shines, as He foretold it would, saying, ‘I have many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now: howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all Truth... and He will show you things to come.’”

Selections from “Songs of Innocence and of Experience” by William Blake (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

00:12:52

Selections from “Songs of Innocence and of Experience” by William Blake (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Born in London, England in 1757, William Blake was a poet, artist, and spiritual visionary. During the course of his life, he created hundreds of artistic engravings, many of which were combined with poems. Although his works were not widely popular when he was still alive, he is now considered a leading artist and poet of the Romantic Age. We will now share with you selections from “Songs of Innocence,” the first part of a poem collection that also includes “Songs of Experience.” “Little lamb, who made thee? Does thou know who made thee, Gave thee life, and bid thee feed By the stream and o’er the mead; Gave thee clothing of delight, Softest clothing, woolly, bright; Gave thee such a tender voice, Making all the vales rejoice? Little lamb, who made thee? Does thou know who made thee? Little lamb, I’ll tell thee; Little lamb, I’ll tell thee: He is called by thy name, For He calls Himself a Lamb. He is meek, and He is mild, He became a little child. I a child, and thou a lamb, We are called by His name. Little lamb, God bless thee! Little lamb, God bless thee!” “Sleep, sleep, happy child! All creation slept and smiled. Sleep, sleep, happy sleep, While o’er thee thy mother weep. Sweet babe, in thy face Holy image I can trace; Sweet babe, once like thee Thy Maker lay, and wept for me: Wept for me, for thee, for all, When He was an infant small. Thou His image ever see, Heavenly face that smiles on thee! Smiles on thee, on me, on all, Who became an infant small; Infant smiles are His own smiles; Heaven and earth to peace beguiles.” “To Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love, All pray in their distress, And to these virtues of delight Return their thankfulness. For Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love, Is God our Father dear; And Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love, Is man, His child and care. For Mercy has a human heart; Pity, a human face; And Love, the human form divine: And Peace the human dress. Then every man, of every clime, That prays in his distress, Prays to the human form divine: Love, Mercy, Pity, Peace. And all must love the human form, In heathen, Turk, or Jew. Where Mercy, Love, and Pity dwell, There God is dwelling, too.”

Selections from “The Life Divine” by Sri Aurobindo (vegetarian): The Human Aspiration, Part 2 of 2

00:10:37

Selections from “The Life Divine” by Sri Aurobindo (vegetarian): The Human Aspiration, Part 2 of 2

“We speak of the evolution of Life in Matter, the evolution of Mind in Matter; but evolution is a word which merely states the phenomenon without explaining it. For there seems to be no reason why Life should evolve out of material elements or Mind out of living form, unless we accept the Vedantic solution that Life is already involved in Matter and Mind in Life because in essence Matter is a form of veiled Life, Life a form of veiled Consciousness. And then there seems to be little objection to a farther step in the series and the admission that mental consciousness may itself be only a form and a veil of higher states which are beyond Mind. In that case, the unconquerable impulse of man towards God, Light, Bliss, Freedom, Immortality presents itself in its right place in the chain as simply the imperative impulse by which Nature is seeking to evolve beyond Mind, and appears to be as natural, true and just as the impulse towards Life which she has planted in certain forms of Matter or the impulse towards Mind which she has planted in certain forms of Life.” “The animal is a living laboratory in which Nature has, it is said, worked out man. Man himself may well be a thinking and living laboratory in whom and with whose conscious co-operation she wills to work out the superman, the god. Or shall we not say, rather, to manifest God? For if evolution is the progressive manifestation by Nature of that which slept or worked in her, involved, it is also the overt realization of that which she secretly is. We cannot, then, bid her pause at a given stage of her evolution, nor have we the right to condemn with the religionist as perverse and presumptuous or with the rationalist as a disease or hallucination any intention she may evince or effort she may make to go beyond. If it be true that Spirit is involved in Matter and apparent Nature is secret God, then the manifestation of the divine in himself and the realization of God within and without are the highest and most legitimate aim possible to man upon earth.”

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

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.

Selections from The Mother’s “Prayers and Meditations” - Be Instruments of the Divine, Part 2 of 2

00:15:34

Selections from The Mother’s “Prayers and Meditations” - Be Instruments of the Divine, Part 2 of 2

“See how very little all outer circumstances matter. Why strive and strain so to realize thy own conception of Truth? Be suppler, more trusting. The only duty is not to let oneself be troubled by anything. To torment oneself about doing the right thing causes as much harm as a bad will. Only in a calm as of deep waters can be found the possibility of True Service.” “O Lord, Master of our life, let us soar very high above all care for our material preservation. Nothing is more humiliating and depressing than these thoughts so constantly turned towards the preservation of the body, these preoccupations with health, the means of subsistence, the framework of life.… How very insignificant is all this, a thin smoke that a simple breath can disperse or a single thought turned towards Thee dispel like a vain mirage!” “In this calm concentration which comes before day-break, more than at any other moment, my thought rises to Thee, O Lord of our being, in an ardent prayer. Grant that this day which is about to dawn may bring to the earth and to men a little more of pure light and true peace; may Thy manifestation be more complete and Thy sweet law more widely recognized; may something higher, nobler, more true be revealed to mankind; may a vaster and deeper love spread abroad so that all painful wounds may be healed; and may this first sunbeam dawning upon the earth be the herald of joy and harmony, a symbol of the glorious splendor hidden in the essence of life. O Divine Master, grant that today may bring to us a completer consecration to Thy Will, a more integral gift of ourselves to Thy work, a more total forgetfulness of self, a greater illumination, a purer love. Grant that in a communion growing ever deeper, more constant and entire, we may be united always more and more closely to Thee and become Thy servitors worthy of Thee. Remove from us all egoism, root out all petty vanity, greed and obscurity. May we be all ablaze with Thy divine Love; make us Thy torches in the world...”

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

00:15:03

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

“This idea of soul gave expression to the spiritual life of man. When he considered the soul’s subtle influences, its strange effect upon him as his better nature, his spiritual life changed accordingly. He tried to live in harmony with the feelings of the soul and with his comprehension of what he thought it was.” “The soul manifests in each of us differently, because of the psychic development of the individual, that is, his ability to react, as stated before, to the spiritual force within him. It is the ego or personality of the individual which must be perfected. As we develop and perfect our ego and inner personality, we eventually come to appreciate, comprehend and realize the soul force within us.” “In conclusion, we may liken the consciousness of man unto a pyramid. The point or apex of the pyramid represents the objective function of consciousness, with its reliance upon the limited five objective senses. What the apex of this pyramid can possibly accommodate is restricted by its limited area. On either side of the apex, we drop off into seemingly nothing, or to that which is beyond the perception of the objective sense faculties. However, as we descend the sides of the pyramid, it becomes more expansive. Finally reaching the base of the pyramid rooted in the earth, upon which it rests, we find that the earth, in contrast to the limited area of the apex, holds infinite manifestations. By this analogy, we mean that if we introvert our consciousness, turn it inward to self, we are going from the apex of the pyramid of consciousness, from the limited, objective faculties and what they reveal to us, to the essence of our being, which is unlimited and acquaints us with the infinite of the universe. The base of the pyramid represents the consciousness of self, the link with soul. It is our attunement with this vast infinite intelligence, which permits inspirations as impressions to come to us, to be interpreted by the brain consciousness as brilliant and revealing ideas. The more we devote ourselves to this base of the pyramid of consciousness — in other words, meditate upon and analyze self — the greater it becomes to us.”

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

00:13:38

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

Let us now continue with a selection from Part 3, Chapter 12, from Rabbi Moses ben Maimon’s book entitled, “The Guide for the Perplexed.” “These words are immediately followed by the explanation that man himself is the author of this class of evils, ‘But man is born unto trouble.’ This class of evils originates in man’s vices, such as excessive desire for eating, drinking, and love; indulgence in these things in undue measure, or in improper manner, or partaking of bad food. This course brings diseases and afflictions upon body and soul alike.” “The error of the ignorant goes so far as to say that God’s power is insufficient, because He has given to this Universe the properties which they imagine cause these great evils, and which do not help all evil-disposed persons to obtain the evil which they seek, and to bring them to the aim of their desires, though these, as we have shown, are really without limit.” “The virtuous and wise, however, see and comprehend the wisdom of God displayed in the Universe. Thus, David says, ‘All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.’” “All the difficulties and troubles we meet in this respect, are due to the desire for superfluous things; when we seek unnecessary things, we have difficulty even in finding that which is indispensable. For the more we desire to have that which is superfluous, the more we meet with difficulties; our strength and possessions are spent in unnecessary things, and are wanting when required for that which is necessary. Observe how Nature proves the correctness of this assertion. The more necessary a thing is for living beings, the more easily it is found and the cheaper it is; the less necessary it is, the rarer and dearer it is.” “In these two ways you will see the mercy of God toward His creatures, how He has provided that which is required, in proper proportions, and treated all individual beings of the same species with perfect equality.”
