Revelation 1:8

But verily thou art not able to behold Me with these thine eyes; the divine eye I give unto thee.

The Bhagavad-Gita

There is but one Brahma which is Truth’s Self.  It is from ignorance of that One that the god-heads have been conceived to be diverse.  Mahabharata  Continue reading “Jan. 10, 2017 – I HAVE A SPIRITUAL VISION WITHIN ME WHICH BEHOLDS A PERFECT UNIVERSE”

Jan. 09, 2017 – TODAY I FEEL THAT I MERGE WITH THE INFINITE

TODAY I FEEL THAT I MERGE WITH THE INFINITE   

Canst thou by searching find out God?  Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?  It is high as heaven… The measure thereof is larger than the earth, and broader than the sea.  Job 11: 7-9

The Tao cannot be heard; what can be heard is not It.  The Tao cannot be seen; what can be seen is not It.  The Tao cannot be expressed in words; what can be expressed in words is not It.  Do we know the Formless which gives form to form?  In the same way the Tao does not admit of being.  Kwang-Tze

Realize that thou art “that” – Brahm, which is the cessation of all differentiation, which never changes its nature and is as unmoved as a waveless ocean, eternally unconditioned and undivided.  Raja Yoga Continue reading “Jan. 09, 2017 – TODAY I FEEL THAT I MERGE WITH THE INFINITE”

But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:33

Then, in this way know God; as having all things in Himself as thoughts, the whole Cosmos itself.

Thrice-Greatness Hermes

Jan. 05, 2017 – THE UNERRING JUDGMENT OF DIVINE INTELLIGENCE DIRECTS MY FAITH AND MAKES PLAIN AND PERFECT THE WAY BEFORE ME

THE UNERRING JUDGMENT OF DIVINE INTELLIGENCE DIRECTS MY FAITH AND MAKES PLAIN AND PERFECT THE WAY BEFORE ME 

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

I Corinthians 2: 7-8

The skillful masters (of the Tao) in old times, with a subtle and exquisite penetration, comprehended its mysteries, and were deep (also) so as to elude men’s knowledge.

The Texts of Taoism

He who is happy within, who rejoiceth within, who is illuminated within, that Yogi, becoming the ETERNAL, goeth to the Peace of the ETERNAL.  The Bhagavad-Gita  Continue reading “Jan. 05, 2017 – THE UNERRING JUDGMENT OF DIVINE INTELLIGENCE DIRECTS MY FAITH AND MAKES PLAIN AND PERFECT THE WAY BEFORE ME”

Jan. 04, 2018 – I KNOW THAT MY SPIRIT IS FREE FROM ALL LIMITATION – I KNOW THAT I UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH ABOUT MYSELF   

I KNOW THAT MY SPIRIT IS FREE FROM ALL LIMITATION – I KNOW THAT I UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH ABOUT MYSELF   

 

I am the Almighty God, walk before me, and be thou perfect. 

Genesis 17:1

Whoever knows the God who is without commencement, without end, who within this impervious (world) is the creator of the universe, who is of an infinite form, the one penetrator of the universe, becomes liberated from all bonds. 

Upanishad

Thus it is that the Tao produces (all things), nourishes them, brings them to their full growth, nurses them, completes them, matures them, maintains them, and overspreads them. 

The Tao Teh King

Our Chinese text tells us that Tao, which means Spirit, produces everything, nourishes everything and maintains everything.  It spreads itself over everything.  It flows through everything and is in all things.  Indeed, being all that is, there can be nothing outside It.  Our Hindu text tells us that in such degree as we understand God, who is the one penetrator of the universe in such degree we become liberated.  And the Hebrew text says, “Walk before me and be thou perfect.”  We are to recognize the Divine in everything; to speak to the Divine in everything; to see It everywhere – “Lift the stone and you will find me, cleave the wood for there am I.” There is a mystical Presence which pervades the universe.  The fragrance of the rose; the beauty of the dewdrop glistening in the sun, are manifestations of Its Presence and activity.  This mystical Presence welling up in our consciousness, evermore proclaims Itself as the root and source.”  And the Christian Scriptures tell us, “I am over all, in all and through all.”  The enlightened of the ages have told us that it is this God within us that recognizes Itself, or Himself, in everything we are.

I know that my spirit is free from all limitation; that my physical body and my objective affairs reflect and manifest the perfection which I feel; the wholeness which I am certain of, and the prosperity which rightfully belongs to me.

I AM RESOLVED TO SEE THE GOOD IN EVERYONE AND EVERY EVENT

 

… for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?  And what communion hath light with darkness?  II Corinthians 6:14

Q. Is ignorance produced by anything?  A. No, by nothing.  Ignorance is without beginning…  The origin of pain can be traced to ignorance and it will not cease until ignorance is entirely dispelled, which will be only when the identity of the Self with Brahma (the Universal Spirit) is fully realized.  The Raja Yoga Philosophy

Rabbi Ismael answers, “Not God but ye yourselves, are the creators and supporters of mortal evils.”  The Talmud Continue reading “Jan. 01, 2017 – I AM RESOLVED TO SEE THE GOOD IN EVERYONE AND EVERY EVENT”
