Tuning in to the Higher Frequency of Spiritual Wisdom: An Interview with Mr. James Bean (vegan), Part 3 of 5

Tuning in to the Higher Frequency of Spiritual Wisdom: An Interview with Mr. James Bean (vegan), Part 3 of 5

In an effort to inform people that veganism has always been a requirement for spiritual Truth seekers, Mr. James Bean compiled a booklet highlights lesser-known writings in Christian scriptures regarding dietary choices. “And so, when I came up with this booklet of vegetarian Christianity, making Christianity vegan, that’s based on years of research, finding all of these amazing vegetarian passages, and actually vegan, because there’s no reference to dairy products, either. It’s all plant-based references. And they can read up on the evidence for vegetarianism of Jesus, The Apostles, John the Baptist as well and later generations of Christians and Christian movements, Gnostic Gospels, of course the Essenes, the Essene teachings of Judaism. I’ve tried to put all of that together. It’s got all kinds of different sections to it: biblical vegetarianism, the vegetarianism of the Gnostics, vegetarianism of the Ebionites, which is just a fancy name for the Hebrew Christians or the original Jesus Movement of Israel.”

The Reunion of Souls, Part 5 of 11

00:24:29

The Reunion of Souls, Part 5 of 11

I am here today with the honor of God’s permission and endowment to remind us, our fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, and little brothers and little sisters, that we should remember our whole being, and I’ll show you how. It is very simple to remember, more simple than breathing, more simple than eating.Hallo. Thank you so much! God bless you! Thank you. I am very, very touched and honored. Thank God for giving me this chance to visit your beautiful land and getting to know your beautiful races of people, and thank you for coming. I guess everybody’s very touched, so I also thank the New Zealand brothers and sisters who have been working very hard to make this beautiful evening a special memory. Thank you, and God bless your land, your people, and bless all the wishes that you have in your dreams. If you already know what you want to ask, you can write it already, and hand it out so that we can answer right away later, yeah? You don’t have to wait until we finish. So somebody can walk up and down and collect the questions.Alright! Because you know already before I begin. I think you know why you are here. Everyone wants to know what God is and everyone wants to know where we come from, and that’s the reason why we came here actually. That’s the reason why we came to this planet, the so-called planet, physical planet, even though at the same time, we are connected with Heaven, and spiritual planets, if we call that. But because we have forgotten the connection, so, many of us, or most of us, have just recognized this physical presence and this physical life we call human life.In fact, we are not just human, we are also spiritual beings – we are highly developed beings. At the same time we are living here, we are also living in different levels of consciousness – we are also doing so many great things – but it is difficult for most of us to realize that. Our ancestors, for example, the ancestors of the Maori people that you have just seen, they have sung so beautiful songs so spiritually developed, so highly elevated, so ‘souly’ songs, because our ancestors have known a different level of spirituality than some of us do today. But we still can develop this quality again... Not really develop – we can still remember it again, because what we once had, we will not lose it; it’s just sometimes we forget. So, in order for us to remember, we should... I will give you some practical experience after I explain a little, if you would like to, because if we experience it ourselves, it’s better than thousands of theoretical words.But I feel I should introduce it a little bit, even though God is not to be explained in language. But just like the Maori ancestors, they have known God, they have known spiritual levels that exceed our language, that go beyond our ordinary understanding, therefore, they could express themselves in poetry, in music, in songs, which are so beautiful, so out of the ordinary, and so touching to the soul when you hear it. It is because they expressed their own inner level of enlightenment. For lack of this inner enlightenment, or because of forgetting this inner enlightenment and our true Selves, we often cannot express ourselves in beautiful ways, in the way that we would like ourselves to express, and we sometimes could not behave or react in such a way that we would like ourselves to do. It is because we have forgotten the inner connection. We have forgotten that our lives, our so-called being, is greater, greater, longer and higher and more, more, more, more, more multiple facets, multiple qualities, multiple expressions than just this physical being that we know ourselves to be; we have forgotten that. For example, for example, the whole being here is me, from head to toe, yes, the whole being. I am not just the toe, I am not just the finger, I am not just the forehead – the whole being is me, but if I just remember my toes or my fingers, then I am not complete. Then it’s not me, it’s not complete. Similarly, if we just remember that we are a physical human being, then we are not complete.I am here today with the honor of God’s permission and endowment to remind us, our fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, and little brothers and little sisters, that we should remember our whole being, and I’ll show you how. It is very simple to remember, more simple than breathing, more simple than eating. Breathing, sometimes we have difficulty. If we have a blocked nose, we can’t breathe. Eating, if we have indigestion, we can’t eat, or if we don’t have enough money to buy food, we’re also in trouble. But spiritual wealth is always there. We always have it. It’s just we’re too busy looking at the outside, remembering our physical body, taking care of too many mundane duties. The world makes us very, very concentrated in the physical and material aspects, that we have hardly time to remember our 99% of our being, which is higher, greater, more powerful, more miraculous, more wondrous, more everything... more holy, more divine, more beautiful, more happy, more blessed, more blissful – everything that is Godly, that is us.All the teachers have come here, They told us like that: that we are the temple of God and God lives here, God lives there. So all we see here is God, or at least God’s manifestation, individually, differently. But we have forgotten that God quality, that God Nature of ourselves. We just remember this small part of our being which is the human side of ourselves, just like because I like this ring so much, I keep looking at the ring and I just remember this finger all the time and I forget everything else about myself. And this is not how we should do it. So that is why we don’t know God, because we have forgotten to look where we should look. That is all. That is why we often tell people “enlightenment is immediate” because you are already there. Suppose I am sitting here and I’m looking at the finger now. How long does it take me to know myself, if I don’t look here? How long does it take me? One second, right? Not even. As long as I don’t look here, I remember again, “Ah! Here I am! All of this is me!” Yes! It’s very simple; therefore, no one is your teacher.I’m not coming here to be your teacher, because you are already divine. I had also forgotten. At the age of three or four, we begin to forget. Sorry! My English is getting rotten! You see? Even English I’ve forgotten, because I speak so many languages everyday, Chinese, Vietnamese, sometimes German, sometimes French, you know, everything, and I forgot English also. Similarly, I even forgot Vietnamese! Yeah! I don’t speak as fluently as when I was in Vietnam, and I don’t speak Chinese as fluently as when I was still in Taiwan. Because we’re out of practice. Similarly, if we do not try to remember the great being that we truly are, then we will forget, and that’s why it is very easy to forget; and also, it is easy to remember. I am coming here to remind you of the good news that I have remembered, that I have remembered myself. So we can all remember anytime we want, and should we choose to stay in forgetfulness, this is also fine. It is also fine because you are divine, you are God. I’m sorry if I might shock you in any way, but that’s what you are.If you don’t believe me, look back in the Bible. And the Buddhist scriptures say “you are the Buddha,” “Buddha Nature is inside you.” The Bible says God lives within this temple, so who is in there? Who else, except God? If we are only the temple and God is the only one who lives in there, who are we then, except we are God? OK, we don’t remember, fine, but we still are God. So, whatever we choose to do, the God of all Gods that we are, respects that. The Father of all of these beings, which we are, respects our wish and our choice to live, to express our divine Selves in whichever way we want. That is why Jesus told us we do not judge people, because we do not know what is the path that being has chosen to walk. He does his things so that he may come to know God in a different way: he might choose to be a seemingly bad person; he might choose to be a seemingly very lowly person; he might choose to be, seemingly, a very so-called immoral person, but that is his way of knowing the divine. By choosing to be ungodly, he will one day know that this is not him; he has to go back and learn the whole being again.Because if we always stay in Heaven and we are God all the time, we will not recognize ourselves as God. So, we need to lower ourselves, for example, come down to this physical level, so that we can once again recognize the greatness of ourselves. That is our choice, and that’s why we came here. So the answer to our question, “why are we here?” is because we want to know God. So, when we feel that the time is up, it’s the time that we choose to remember ourselves again, that is the time when we come to seek out spiritual friends, spiritual groups or maybe spiritual teachers, as we call them, so that we can remember quickly. Because we have forgotten how to remember and where to look for, so some friends who had already remembered himself or herself may be able to help us, and then we recognize that we are nothing else but the Supreme Being, but God. We recognize the Supreme Being that lives, that is housed within this body. But actually, Hes is not housed within the body; Hes houses our body.But then again, because spiritual terminology is never a very exact science, so no matter how much a teacher tells us about God, how eloquently a spiritual friend might express about the Divine being within ourselves, we cannot just understand by listening. So, the spiritual friend or teacher or the guide or a friend has to show us practically, not just theoretically. For example, when Jesus came to our planet, He taught His disciples both ways – theoretical way and practical way – and that’s why later His immediate disciples could also do wonders, could also see Heaven, could also hear the voice of God – the Word of the Creator – could also see the Light of Heaven, could ascend to Heaven and even see the angels or see the Father. The Father spoke to them like the Father spoke to Moses; and the angels also spoke to them. Likewise, we could do that, because as great as Jesus’ disciples, we are also great. We and Jesus’ disciples are the same, equally, because Jesus said to us that we are all children of God. But because we have forgotten, so, sometimes one friend, two friends have to come to remind us; but only when we are ready, because if we are not ready, no one can do much for us.

From The Cloud upon the Sanctuary by Karl von Eckartshausen – Selection from Letter I, Part 1 of 3

From The Cloud upon the Sanctuary by Karl von Eckartshausen – Selection from Letter I, Part 1 of 3

Karl von Eckartshausen was a 16th-century German Catholic mystic, philosopher, and prolific author, interested in alchemy, metaphysics, natural sciences, and theosophy. His most recognizable work is titled “The Cloud upon the Sanctuary,” a book on Christian mysticism. Today we’ll read a passage from Karl von Eckartshausen’s book “The Cloud upon the Sanctuary,” Letter Ⅰ, on the importance of developing our interior spiritual faculty in order to really recognize our unity with God. “If only natural man, that is, sensuous man, would only learn to see that the source of his intelligence and the incentive of his will are only his individuality, he would then seek interiorly for a higher source, and he would thereby approach that which alone can give this true element, because it is wisdom in its essential substance. Jesus Christ is that Wisdom, Truth and Love. He, as Wisdom, is the Principle of reason, and the Source of the purest intelligence. As love, He is the Principle of morality, the true and pure incentive of the will. Love and Wisdom beget the Spirit of Truth, interior Light; this Light illuminates us and makes supernatural things objective to us.”

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

00:14:33

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

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

From the Book of Mormon: Excerpts from the Book of Moroni – Chapters 1-7, Part 2 of 2

Through Divine assistance, Joseph Smith was able to translate the Book of Mormon into English. Along with the Holy Bible, it remains an important scripture to the millions of Mormon faithful around the world. We now continue with Chapter 7 from The Book of Mormon’s “Book of Moroni,” with its wise elaborations about hope, faith, and pure-heartedness. “Therefore, if a man have faith he must have hope; for without faith there cannot be any hope. And again, behold I say unto you that he cannot have faith and hope, save he shall be meek, and lowly of heart.” “And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. …Therefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail - But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoever is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.”

The Reunion of Souls, Part 2 of 11

“I have started the Quan Yin Method almost a year ago, that is after I’ve been practicing other types of meditation for over 25 years. Having had a chance to practice other meditations, the Quan Yin Method brought for me a level of enlightenment which I have never had before. It has fulfilled my heart so deeply that I’m very, very grateful to Master for Her step She took in the Himalayas which was not easy, and each one of us most probably will make steps which are not easy.” “My life, my family life, has changed dramatically through the Quan Yin Method. I became a much more easy-going father, as my children say, having been before quite strict. And I can say that my relationship with my wife has improved very deeply.”03:23)“When you become a full initiate, you realize that Master has taken a lot of what we call karmic lifetimes away from you. I’m not going to explain it because I am still new, I’m only a baby.” “There’s so much beauty in your eyes, I see them welling up with tears, I see you lift up your gaze to the sky, With joy, with joy, pure joy. I feel the angels calling me, Ah... Winging out from your eyes, With the rising sun. There’s so much beauty in your smile, I feel you warm upon my cheek, I feel you bringing down your shields, With trust, with trust, pure trust.” “Is it really you? Is it dé jà vue? I know I’ve known you before the dawn of time, You embody love. In its truest form, You’re beaming with a light that shines the way. We are angels in expression, In the total universal connection, Through one another’s eyes, We can recognize the truth. Remember me, Come close and see, We are one together, we are free, Let me feel your pain, We will heal again, Where there is a will there is a way.” “I’m going to leap for joy, I’m going to open my heart, I’m going to twirl and whirl and spin in a spirit dance. I’m going to lend a hand, I’m going to cherish the land, I’m going to give and give and give, All I can provide.” “We’re going to save the trees, We’re going to honor the seas, We’re going to cry, dive and fly on the wings of love. We’re going to heal the world, We’re going to walk in peace, We’re going to share and share and share and bring release, For we are angels in expression.”

From the Books of the Apocrypha: The Wisdom of Solomon, Part 2 of 2

00:09:37

From the Books of the Apocrypha: The Wisdom of Solomon, Part 2 of 2

We now continue exploring the teachings from The Wisdom of Solomon about our life here and after. We’ll learn from the following excerpts how essential it is to please God by following His way of wisdom, regardless of the temptations around us. “But though the righteous be prevented with death, yet shall he be in rest. For honorable age is not that which standeth in length of time, nor that is measured by the number of years. But wisdom is the gray hair unto men, and an unspotted life is old age. He pleased God, and was beloved of Him: This the people saw, and understood it not, neither did they keep this in their minds, that His grace and mercy is with His saints, and that He hath respect unto His chosen. For the hope of the ungodly is like dust that is blown away with the wind; like a thin froth that is driven away with the storm; like the smoke which is dispersed here and there with a tempest, and passeth away as the remembrance of a guest that tarrieth but a day. But the righteous live forevermore; their reward also is with the Lord, and the care of them is with the most High. Therefore shall they receive a glorious Kingdom, and a beautiful crown from the Lord’s hand: for with His right hand shall He cover them, and with His arm shall He protect them.”

Studies in the Scriptures by Charles Taze Russell: The Divine Plan of the Ages - Selection from Chapter 5, Part 1 of 2

00:13:31

Studies in the Scriptures by Charles Taze Russell: The Divine Plan of the Ages - Selection from Chapter 5, Part 1 of 2

He is noted for his analytical interpretations of the Holy Bible and for dedicating his life and resources to the preaching of the future establishment of a Golden Age on Earth. According to Mr. Russell’s research of the Holy Bible, God’s Kingdom would rule the Earth through Christ. Among the most well-known of his works is the seven-volume series, “Studies in the Scriptures.” Today, we will read an excerpt from Volume 1 of Charles Taze Russell’s “Studies in the Scriptures” titled, “The Divine Plan of the Ages.” “Paul declares that this mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations now made manifest to His saints, is ‘CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY.’ This is the great mystery of God which has been hidden from all previous ages, and is still hidden from all except a special class - the saints, or consecrated believers. But what is meant by ‘Christ in you?’ We have learned that Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit, and thus we recognize Him to be the Christ - the Anointed - for the word Christ signifies anointed.” “And, dearly beloved, many blows and much polishing must we endure - much transforming must we undergo, and much conforming to His example, under the direction of the great Master-builder; and in order to have the ability and ideality of the Builder displayed in us, we will need to see that we have no cross-grained will of our own to oppose or thwart the accomplishment of His will in us; we must be very childlike and humble – ‘clothed with humility; for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.’ Let us humble ourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt us in due time, as He has exalted our Head and Forerunner.”

The Path of Discipleship by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

00:13:19

The Path of Discipleship by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Born in 1861, Dr. Rudolf Steiner was a great Austrian polymath, philosopher and scientist who made influential contributions in the fields of education, science, spirituality and medicine. 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 explore selected parts from Dr. Rudolf Steiner's book "The Way of Initiation." The author reveals how by balancing our inner and outer life, one can continue a safer and more promising path in attaining higher knowledge. Further in the chapter "The Path of Discipleship," the importance of taking enough time in tranquility to contemplate on the essence of life's experiences is emphasized. "He does not learn in order that he may accumulate wisdom as his own treasure, but in order that he may put his learning at the service of the world." "Provide for yourself moments of inward calm, and in these moments learn to distinguish between the real and the unreal." "Our aim, in moments of retirement, must be to contemplate and judge our own experiences and actions, as though it were not ourselves but some other person to whom they applied."

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

00:14:59

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

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

Selections from My Religion by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Chapter II, Part 1 of 2

Selections from My Religion by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Chapter II, Part 1 of 2

“Everyone thinks of changing the world but no one thinks of changing himself.” This insightful saying by Leo Tolstoy is a good reminder for all of us to reflect inward. The renowned 19th-century Russian author suggested that we ask ourselves what God really wants us to do. Yearning for more than success, fame, and wealth, Leo Tolstoy eventually established himself as a moral philosopher and spiritual leader during the last 30 years of his life. In addition to adopting and promoting the vegetarian diet, he became a fervent Christian pacifist through an interpretation of the ethical teachings of Christ. My Religion is a book by Count Leo Tolstoy, completed in 1884. It is the follow up to his book, A Confession. These two volumes show his transition from existential questions about life to a firm belief in God and the spiritual principle of nonviolent resistance as described in the Gospels of the Holy Bible. “When I apprehended clearly the words ‘Resist not evil,’ my conception of the doctrine of Jesus was entirely changed; and I was astounded, not that I had failed to understand it before, but that I had misunderstood it so strangely. I knew, as we all know, that the true significance of the doctrine of Jesus was comprised in the injunction to love one’s neighbor. When we say, ‘Turn the other cheek,’ ‘Love your enemies,’ we express the very essence of Christianity.”

From The Essene Humane Gospel of Christ: Peace and Safety for All God’s Creatures, Part 1 of 2

00:15:23

From The Essene Humane Gospel of Christ: Peace and Safety for All God’s Creatures, Part 1 of 2

Lord Jesus Christ, also known as Lord Yeshua, was born into the Essenes Brotherhood, and the Essenes wrote detailed accounts about the Beloved Master’s life and teachings. One of these texts whose fragments have fortunately been preserved is called The Essene Humane Gospel of Christ. Today we’ll read a selection near the beginning of the Essene Humane Gospel of Christ. “And Joseph (Yeshua’s father) spoke these words: ‘Blessed be the True God of our fathers and our mothers in Israel, for in the acceptable time Thou hast surely heard my voice and in the day of salvation hast Thou always helped me. For did not Thou saith, “I will preserve Thy Holy seed and make with Thee a covenant of the people to renew the face of the Earth and return everything back to its root; and to cause the desolate places to be rescued from the very hands of those doing the spoiling.” For Thou hast promised to restore Eden over the face of the Earth and give peace and joy unto all the creatures. That Thou mayest say to the captives, “Go ye forth and be set free, even as ye were born free”; and to them that live in darkness, because of fear, Thou sayest, “Show yourselves in the light of day, and be ye not afraid anymore; for they, one and all, shall again feed in the ways of pleasantness only. For Thy people at that time SHALL NO MORE HUNT NOR WORRY THE CREATURES WITH FEAR OF HUNGER, FOR ALL SHALL BE FED AND SATISFIED, which I have made to rejoice before my eyes.”’”

Excerpts from The Diamond Sutra: Chapters 1-11, Part 1 of 2

Excerpts from The Diamond Sutra: Chapters 1-11, Part 1 of 2

The Diamond Sutra is also known as “Chin-Kang-Ching” or in Sanskrit “Vajracchedika-sutra” (“Diamond Cutter Sutra”). It is one of the most important historical scriptures in the Buddhist faith. This suta presents a collection of question-answer dialogs between the Buddha and His assembly of monks. Written with a spiritual goal, the Diamond Sutra is meant to alleviate suffering through the achievement of Wisdom. “‘Subhuti, as you have said, the Tathagata is skillfully mindful of the Bodhisattvas, and skillful in entrusting to the Bodhisattvas. If you now listen closely, I shall explain for you in what good sons and good daughters launching the Anuttara-Samyak-Sambodhi mind should thus abide, and how thus they should regulate their thoughts.’ ‘Subhuti, if a Bodhisattva has the view of a self, the view of a person, the view of beings, or the view of a soul; then he is not a Budhisattva.’ ‘Subhuti, the blessed virtue of a Bodhisattva not dwelling in the appearances of charity is also, again, thus: it cannot be calculated. Subhuti, Bodhisattvas should only thus in this teaching dwell.’”

From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library: On the Resurrection and the Father, Part 1 of 2

00:12:10

From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library: On the Resurrection and the Father, 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 called 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. The discovery and translation of these scriptures helped scholars to re-evaluate early Christian history and the nature of Gnosticism, a Christian movement originating in the first and second century that emphasized “gnosis.” “Gnosis” means the direct knowing or acquaintance of the Divine through esoteric experience. We will now read an excerpt from the Nag Hammadi’s Treatise on the Resurrection, which is also referred to as “The Letter to Rheginos.”“Then, indeed, as the Apostle said, ‘We suffered with Him, and we arose with Him, and we went to Heaven with Him.’ Now if we are manifest in this world wearing Him, we are that One’s beams, and we are embraced by Him until our setting, that is to say, our death in this life. We are drawn to Heaven by Him, like beams by the sun, not being restrained by anything. This is the spiritual resurrection which swallows up the psychic in the same way as the fleshly.”“What, then, is the resurrection? It is always the disclosure of those who have risen. For if you remember reading in the Gospel that Elijah appeared and Moses with him, do not think the resurrection is an illusion. It is no illusion, but it is truth! Indeed, it is more fitting to say the world is an illusion, rather than the resurrection, which has come into being through our Lord the Savior, Jesus Christ.”“But the resurrection does not have this aforesaid character, for it is the truth which stands firm. It is the revelation of what is, and the transformation of things, and a transition into newness. For imperishability descends upon the perishable; the light flows down upon the darkness, swallowing it up; and the Pleroma (spiritual universe) fills up the deficiency. These are the symbols and the images of the resurrection. He it is who makes the good.”

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

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

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

From Alice Bailey’s The Reappearance of the Christ: “The Doctrine of the Coming One,” Part 3 of 3

Today we’ll read the rest of Chapter One from Alice Bailey’s book “The Reappearance of the Christ” in which a wonderful prediction is presented of great changes after Christ returns and a new time of peace on Earth as never known before. “When the Christ, the Avatar of Love, makes His reappearance then will the ‘Son’s of men who are now the Sons of God withdraw Their faces from the shining light and radiate that light upon the sons of men who know not yet they are the Sons of God.’ Then shall the Coming One appear, His footsteps hastened through the valley of the shadow by the One of [awe-inspiring] power Who stands upon the mountain top, breathing out love eternal, light supernal and peaceful, silent Will. ‘Then will the sons of men respond. Then will a newer light shine forth into the dismal, weary vale of Earth. Then will new life course through the veins of men, and then will their vision compass all the ways of what may be.’ ‘So peace will come again on Earth, but a peace unlike anything known before. Then will the will-to-good flower forth as understanding, and understanding blossom as goodwill in men.’”

Selection from Edgar Cayce’s Christ Consciousness: The Body is the Temple, Part 1 of 2

00:13:17

Selection from Edgar Cayce’s Christ Consciousness: The Body is the Temple, Part 1 of 2

Internationally known clairvoyant Edgar Cayce was called “the sleeping prophet” due to the seemingly “deep sleep” he entered before he started a prophecy. He performed some 22,000 readings over four decades between 1901-1944. Of these readings, more than 14,000 were recorded, ranging on topics such as reincarnation, oneness, the Akashic records (a library of all human events), ancient mysteries, universal laws, and the importance of meditation and prayer. Today, we’ll explore some of Edgar Cayce’s insightful readings about how for those seeking to know God, our body and actions are a channel through which the Christ Consciousness awaits to be awakened. “Thy body is indeed the temple of the living God. Where in thy body, then, is the door through which – when ye open it – the Christ may come in, the Christ-Conscience? ‘Ye abiding in me and I in the Father, ye may know that consciousness that I and the Father abide in thee.’ That is the manner in which the individual, the soul, may at THIS time become more and more aware of the Christ Consciousness, that manifested by and through the Lord Jesus, that is the promise and the sureness as shown in Him from the Father unto thee.”

From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library: Excerpts from The Gospel of Truth, Part 1 of 2

00:12:37

From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library: Excerpts from The Gospel of Truth, Part 1 of 2

We'll now explore a selection from the Gospel of Truth, a gnostic scripture, part of the Nag Hammadi Library. The author of the book is unknown, whereas it is suggested that it was written by a disciple of the Valentinian Gnostic movement, or even by Valentinus himself. Valentinus was a prominent Egyptian theologian from Early Christianity who founded the Gnostic movement Valentinianism in the 2nd century. Here, as we begin to understand the great love of Lord Jesus Christ as He watches over God's children, we can also start to see that trusting in God's will is necessary to be in complete union with Christ. “Say, then, from the heart, that you are the perfect day, and in you dwells the Light that does not fail. Speak of the truth with those who search for it, and (of) knowledge to those who have committed sin in their error. Make firm the foot of those who have stumbled, and stretch out your hands to those who are ill. Feed those who are hungry, and give repose to those who are weary, and raise up those who wish to rise, awaken those who sleep. For you are the understanding that is drawn forth. If strength acts thus, it becomes even stronger. Be concerned with yourselves; do not concerned with other things which you have rejected from yourselves.”

From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (vegetarian): Excerpts from Chapters 1-20, Part 1 of 2

The Book of the Secrets of Enoch, also known as the Second Book of Enoch, or Old Bulgarian Enoch, is an ancient religious text which describes the intensity of the Antediluvian (pre-Flood) time period. The Book of Enoch contains unique material on why the Great Flood was morally necessary, why some angels fell from Heaven, and prophetic revelations of the thousand-year reign of the Messiah. “And those men took me thence, and led me up on to the third [realm], and placed me there; and I looked downwards, and saw the produce of these places, such as has never been known for goodness. And I saw all the sweet-flowering trees and beheld their fruits, which were sweet-smelling, and all the foods borne by them bubbling with fragrant exhalation. And in the midst of the trees of life, in that place upon which the Lord rests, when He goes up into paradise; and this tree is of ineffable goodness and fragrance, and adorned more than every existing thing; and on all sides it is in form gold-looking and vermilion and fire-like and covers all, and it has produce from all fruits.”
