“In every living being, from tiny plant up to man, the spiritual flame of life is struggling upward and onward toward its Source of Being, and this process and this struggle must go on until the last speck of dust returns to the central fires of Infinite Being.” (Julian Johnson, Path of the Masters) 

 

“Men have journeyed to the physical moon, but they know nothing of the regions of the blissful music within themselves — regions which lie beyond the moon, beyond the sun, beyond the most distant stars and galaxies.” (George Arnsby Jones)

 

“No mission is of greater importance to a person than the awareness of his own consciousness, the profound significance and purpose of his existence on earth and to find out the path for ultimate bliss, eternal happiness and cheerfulness i.e. the quest for truth.” (quote from the Shabd Pratap Ashram website)

 

“The world is a bridge. Pass over it, but do not build your dwelling there.” (Yeshua, Saying 200 — an inscription from a mosque at Fatehpur Sikri, India) It’s parallel in the Gospel of Thomas reads: “Come into Being as you pass away.” (Saying 42)

 

“The person who adheres to the meditation on the Supreme Being, the Ultimate Reality, as outlined in this book by Satguru Kabir, will have the effects of his past life karmas, his present life karmas, and future life karmas, uprooted. (A devotee, through deep meditation, identifies with the Supreme Being that is beyond all karmas and their effects. Karmas operate at the level of the mind-body complex, not at the level of Spirit.)”  — Brahmn Nirupan of Kabir

 

The Illusion of Being Trapped by Our Own Beliefs:

 

If we think that meditation practice is too difficult — it’s just too hard, that we aren’t very good at it and can’t possibly get better, get very far, so shall it seem to be for us. If we believe God to be millions of light-years distant and our spiritual experience will remain cold and uneventful, so shall it seem to be for us. If we’re stuck with the impression that the way forward will never be clear and spiritual guidance is nowhere to be found, so shall it seem to be for us. If however, we come to know that we can have quality meditations beginning right now, and there is no reason why we can’t make much progress on the spiritual path during this life, so shall this come to be our experience. As Kabir says:

 

“If you place the Guru at a distance from you, then it is but the distance that you honour [you are a worshiper of distance]: If indeed the Master be far away… When you think that He is not here, then you wander further and further away, and seek Him in vain with tears. Where He is far off, there He is unattainable: where He is near, He is very bliss. Kabir says: ‘Lest His servant should suffer pain He pervades him through and through.’ Know yourself then, O Kabir; for He is in you from head to foot. Sing with gladness, and keep your seat unmoved within your heart.” — Songs of Kabir, Rabindranath Tagore

 

“When a soul reaches the stage of a conscious co-worker in the Divine Plan, the burden of its karma of aeons past is lifted by the soul gaining knowledge and realization that the Lord is the Doer always… If the Lord is not contacted within, Naam ([the inner Light and Sound of God], which is pervading) is not manifested within; then the soul, being the doer, stands subject to the laws of cause and effect and birth and death. The Lord of Death, however, runs away from the sound of Naam vibrating. Through Naam, the coming and going in creation stops. The Master lifts the soul up and out of the realm and jurisdiction of Dharam Rai (Lord of Death) [the demiurge]… The full benefit of this human birth, this mortal form, is derived by following the teachings of the Master. All scriptures are within you – search them out. The Realized Soul is the means of that search; and always remember, Everything is in this house, nothing is outside; Those who seek without, go deeper into forgetfulness.” (Kirpal Singh, excerpted from, WITHIN THIS MORTAL FORM)

The Gospel of Thomas Was Not Composed by Gnostics — Podcast of Spiritual Awakening Radio

 


The Gospel of Thomas Was Not Composed by Gnostics — Podcast of Spiritual Awakening Radio



The Gospel of Thomas Was Not Composed by Gnostics — Audio Podcast of Spiritual Awakening Radio with James Bean: Some background today on The Gospel According to Thomas, the original discovery made at Oxyrhynchus, Egypt, and how this collection of the sayings of Jesus eventually became rebranded in the minds of some as a “Gnostic Gospel”. There is discussion about the relationship between the Gospel of Thomas and adjacent texts (Q Source Gospel, four New Testament gospels, Gospel of the Hebrews, Gospel of Mary Magdalene, etc…), as well as about who quoted these “Thomasonian” sayings of Jesus in early Christianity.

The Soul’s Return to God, the Ocean of Love — The Higher Stages of Meditation Practice — Satsang Audio Podcast

 

The Soul’s Return to God, the Ocean of Love — The Higher Stages of Meditation Practice — Satsang Audio Podcast

 

 

The sincere seeker naturally may wish to discover a spiritual practice, to learn the techniques that make it possible for them to see and hear spiritually, to explore the realms of God. Yet, many are thwarted at every step by religious voices advocating only rituals and dogma, perhaps even declaring, “There is nothing more that can be experienced during this life”. For some, the mystic way is not a lost tradition. There is a living path where such techniques are experienced and shared freely with all.

“God is Love; each soul is a drop from the Divine Ocean, and the Way back to God is also through Love.” — Kirpal Singh

 

“Within the innermost recesses, all spirituality is one and it has never undergone any division. Our spirituality or soul (Surat) is an emanation from the Supreme Being. Within the innermost recesses it is one with God.” (Discourses of Babuji Maharaj, Volume III)
