Universes, Dimensions, Lights and Sounds Are Within

Universes, Dimensions, Lights and Sounds Are Within

Sant Mat Fellowship:
{"This mysterious path is described in the holy books,
but it cannot be found simply by the study of sacred texts.
It is found by the grace and guidance of an accomplished teacher."}

Yogani MataJi on inner Light and Sound Meditation pratice: At first, Mataji pointed out, there will be only darkness but eventually Light will appear in the form of either small flashes or small star-like points. In any case, one should focus on the radiance, keeping one's simran [mantra] intact and allowing the Light to draw the soul inward. The third and most important step, Mataji said, is to listen to the Sound that issues forth from the Light. It is this Internal Music which will numb the body and allow the consciousness to leave its ordinary dwelling. By riding this Current of Light and Sound, like a fish going upstream, the soul will be able to go back to its original home. On the journey within, however, the soul must be guided by a true master so as not to be detained in any of the lower illusory regions. According to Mataji, what near-death patients experience is only the beginning of a vast sojourn into great universes of Light, love and beauty.

Essene Gospel of Peace, Book Four, The Holy Streams: I tell you truly, your body was made not only to breathe, and eat, and think, but it was also made to enter the Holy Stream of Life. And your ears were made not only to hear the words of men, the song of birds, and the music of falling rain, but they were also made to hear the Holy Stream of Sound. And your eyes were made not only to see the rising and setting of the sun, the ripple of sheaves of grain, and the words of the Holy Scrolls, but they were also made to see the Holy Stream of Light. One day your body will return to the Earthly Mother; even also your ears and your eyes. But the Holy Stream of Life, the Holy Stream of Sound, and the Holy Stream of Light, these were never born, and can never die. Enter the Holy Streams, even that Life, that Sound, and that Light which gave you birth; that you may reach the kingdom of the Heavenly Father and become one with him, even as the river empties into the far distant sea. More than this cannot be told, for the Holy Streams will take you to that place where words are no more, and even the Holy Scrolls cannot record the mysteries therein.

Sant Sevi Ji: Visualize the radiant form or image of the Satguru in the still darkness of the inner sky (with eyes closed). Follow that with focusing your attention at the seat of the soul within, i.e. at the third eye or the inner eye or the til dwaar, by making the two streams of consciousness in your two eyes converge in a point. When the two currents of consciousness meet in a point, divine light appears within. Then, practice surat shabd yoga (yoga of divine sound) i.e., try to shift your attention to listening to the divine sounds or myriads of melodies (anahad naad) ringing inside. Listening to the divine sound destroys all agitations and fickleness of the mind.

Poem of Kabir: WITHIN this earthen vessel are bowers and groves, and within it is the Creator: Within this vessel are the seven oceans and the unnumbered stars. The touchstone and the jewel-appraiser are within;
And within this vessel the Eternal soundeth, and the spring wells up. Kabîr says: "Listen to me, my Friend! My beloved Lord is within."

Do You Remember Who You Were Before Time Began?

Do You Remember Who You Were Before Time Began?

An enormous cosmos is out there;
many voices trying to convince us
of the merits of their path,
and the merits of their destination.
Many yogas.
Many meditations.
Many breaths.
Many lives.
Many lights in
dark matter skies
yet more dark skies.
Many caught in dreams
of separation.
Many asleep
who have forgotten
who they were
before time began,
who they still are,
Truth be told.

A dis-incarnate channeled spirit
is not a worthy guide,
having never been in the human form,
and may not even have much love for humanity.
Biological infestation are we?
A dis-incarnate spirit
is impossible to know.
One has only words to go by.
Many avatars attempt to
vacuum up souls with words,
taking them to various realms of
mental or
Misdirected perception
is another name for the work of
an Archon,
a Demiurge,
a Kal Niranjan,
a Collector of the energy of souls.

There's religion
for every chakra,
and a religion
for every realm
of creation.
Materialists proclaim,
"This is all there is".
An astral guide
will never guide
the astral.
Astrals take souls to that realm saying,
"You've made it."
Worshippers of "Universal Mind"
they have created
the highest reality.
But it is no longer a prison
when we are free to leave.

Moving beyond the soul-neglected state
of God-denial and all the spiritual poverty thereof,
The Atman Project.......
With a living teacher-who has-a-body
(not a holy book),
one has the potential opportunity
to evaluate,
if they are genuine
or fraud --
a monster,
or the em-body-ment of
from Above,
a Light appearing to us
in the darkness of contemplation.

Enoch had a body.
Buddha had a body.
Christ had a body.
Valentinus had a body.
Shams had a body.
Rumi had a body.
Hafiz had a body.
Nanak had a body.
Kabir had a body.
Dharam Das had a body.
Gobind Singh had a body.
Paltu had a body.
Dariya had a body.
Tulsi had a body.
Shiv Dayal had a body.
Living Ones,
not held captive
by centuries long gone by,
also have bodies
in the living
Somewhere close by
through perhaps
there is path about you,
about me --
the Path of the Soul --
"The Pearl",
and the Lord of All Souls --
The Ocean of Love.

One asleep awakens nobody.
into the human form,
not because of
karmic debt and attachment,
but out of Compassion,
to summon us
to awakening.
They ask,
"Do you remember?"
They show us
a passage by which we may
find our way back,
riding the Holy Stream of Light-Sound,
the Audible Life-stream,
the Tao or Logos that was with us
"in the beginning",
before time came to be.
As Kabir says,

"You have slept

for millions of years.

This morning,

will you not wake"?

Astral travelers stay
astrally confined.
Soul travelers
passing through
inner regions,
ascend through
a long tunnel,
with the Grace of
the Audible Light Stream,
the Positive Power.

the material plane,
the astral,
the causal akashic,
the mental plane,
is the Timeless Realm.
This is the Place
of Life,
the Point of Origin.
We never left Home,
only our attention.
We still are.
Our true identity
remains soul.
This is the Path of Remembrance.

When the drop returns to
Oneness with The Ocean,
all form will disappear into Formlessness.

We become
what we focus
our soul-attention upon.
If we should happen to
dwell upon
The Absolute ...................
