Happy Ultima Thule New Year



Happy Ultima Thule New Year






Ultima Thule, "a distant unknown region; the extreme limit of travel and discovery", is used as a term for God and Sach Khand by Soamiji Maharaj in his book known as Hidayat Namah (Esoteric Instructions). Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR. May it be one of aspiring to follow the highest path, exploring right to the extreme limits of what can be explored or known, and leading to the experience of Ultimate Reality. 

"Radhasoami Dham is boundless, infinite, endless and immeasurable. It is the Nij Sthan, the special resting place of Sants (Faqirs). That region is the Ultima Thule of all Sants and all speech and description end here." -- Soamiji Maharaj, Hidayat Namah, now an online e-book: https://archive.org/details/HidayatNamahEsotericInstructionsOfSoamiJiMaharajSantRadhasoamiSahib/page/n1   

On New Year's Day humanity will be receiving the first image from New Horizons (the craft that visited Pluto awhile back) as it now encounters the farthest object ever visited, way beyond the orbit of Pluto, thus the name this object has been given: "Ultima Thule". "In classical and medieval literature, Ultima Thule (Latin 'furthermost Thule') acquired a metaphorical meaning of any distant place located beyond the 'borders of the known world'". (Wikipedia)

Below Are NOTES About Today's PODCAST (12-27-18): 

Today's Program -- Table of Contents -- Program Outline:

I begin with an end-of-the-year, Solstice, Purnima (Satsang Full Moon Spiritual Retreat), New Year's Message from Shri Hazur 1008 Ardhnam Saheb of the Dharamdasi Kabir Panth. Following that, there are Kabir poems that mention the moon. Then the rest of the program explores the earliest teachings of Guru Kabir preserved in the Adi Granth (Guru Granth, Shri Guru Granth, Sikh Scriptures of India). These are culled from two different translations: 

1) Songs of Kabir from the Adi Granth, by Nirmal Dass, and, 

2) from a line-by-line interlinear collection of all the verses of Kabir in the Granth. 

These present Kabir's key teachings about this Path of the Masters as he intended it to be, and this is what I mean by "Sant Mat". 

"I was being crushed
like seeds in an oil-press -- 
but the Satguru set me free.
Love, old as all my births,
flickered once again."

Taking Off the Heavy Load Through Meditation

Unfettered meditation
brings jiva mukti (liberation):
Your heavy load is taken off.
Welcome Him in your heart,
so you will not be born
again and again.

This meditation
will erase your blemishes;
you will be free from Maya’s touch.
Meditate, meditate, and sing,
“Hari, Hari” [God, God]. You will obtain
this meditation from your true guru [Satguru].

Always, always meditate day and night:
When you rise, when you lie down,
when you breathe in, when you breathe out.
Waking or sleeping,
relish the taste of meditation —
meditation will bring union.

Meditation will remove all your burdens;
meditation upon Ram’s [God’s] name
will become your support.
Kabir, says, “He is limitless.”

-- Kabir, 
Songs of Kabir 
in the Adi Granth,
Nirmal Dass)

"Says Kabir: With my eyes, I see You, Lord; with my ears, I hear Your Name.
With my tongue I chant Your Name; I enshrine Your Lotus Feet within my heart."

PODCAST: The Gospel of Thomas as a Kind of 'Second Coming' of Christ -- Spiritual Awakening Radio

Below Are NOTES About Today's PODCAST (12-17-18): 

"Know what is before your face, and what is hidden from you will be revealed to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor anything buried which will not be raised up!" (A saying of Jesus from the Greek Oxyrhynchus Gospel of Thomas, Saying 5 that had been buried/lost in Egypt but was raised and published in 1897 in book called, The Sayings of Our Lord) 

There has been a kind of second coming of Christ, not in a physical sense, but rather... what I mean is...  there has been a return of the teachings of Jesus in the form of a collection of sayings of Christ, some of which were first rediscovered in Oxyrhynchus, Egypt during the 19th Century, and published way back in the year 1897 in a book called, The Sayings of Our Lord. Today I will share with you some of these sayings. And you may find, as I do, that as you discover this sayings format, that this gives birth to a new overall appreciation for the sayings of Jesus embedded in the more well-known gospels as well. You'll see the sayings of Jesus in an entirely new way when you encounter the Gospel of Thomas. As I wrote in my article titled, Summarizing the Spiritual Message of the Gospel of Thomas, 'Have always been a fan of this contemplative “wisdom gospel,” with its format of proverbs and parables. It contains absolutely no narrative whatsoever. It’s comprised solely of ... unvarnished sayings of Jesus, one after the other, and that’s it. There is no commentary, no spin, and no story. No more Roman centurions, scribes, Pharisees, and locusts to block our view. Rather than being presented through the “lens” of others, the reader encounters a more direct, unfiltered historic Jesus.'

Saint Augustine quoted the Gospel of Thomas:

"But when the apostles asked
what should be thought about the
prophets of the Jews,
who were thought to have sung
something in the past about his coming,
he was disturbed that they should still
think such things, and replied:
‘You have abandoned the Living One who
is before you,
and are talking about the dead.’"

Gospel of Thomas, saying of Jesus # 52: 
"His disciples said to him,
‘Twenty-four prophets spoke in Israel 
and did all of them speak about you?’
He said to them,
‘You have neglected the Living One
in front of you,
and spoken of the dead.’"

Saint ‘Macarius’ of Syria quoted a saying Jesus not found in the New Testament Gospels: 
"As the Lord has said, 
'The Kingdom of God is 
spread out on the earth, 
and people do not see it.'"

Gospel of Thomas, saying of Jesus # 113):
"The kingdom of the father is
spread out upon the earth,
and people do not see it."
