Podcast: An Introduction to the Gnostic Gospel of Mary Magdalene - Mary Understood the Teachings of Jesus Better Than Anyone Else

 


Podcast: An Introduction to the Gnostic Gospel of Mary Magdalene - Mary Understood the Teachings of Jesus Better Than Anyone Else






Mary Magdalene is the ultimate example of a female apostle (spiritual teacher and leader) in early Christianity. But Mary as well as her Gospel have long-since been neglected and forgotten. As it says in the Gospel of Mary: "You did not see me nor did you know me. You mistook the garment I wore for my true self. And you did not recognize me." Today, we commemorate the return of the Gospel According to Mary Magdalene, and her visions of the Resurrected Christ.


In Gnostic scriptures such as the Gospel of Mary, unenlightened human existence is portrayed as a kind of night of the living dead, souls living in a world of sleep caught up in dreams of illusion, trapped in spiritual ignorance somewhere in time, limited to only a couple of dimensions, tethered to material existence seemingly unable to become aware of anything more. One of my favorite passages from Mary is when a liberated soul exclaims: "I was set loose from a world and from the chain of forgetfulness that exists in time!"


For the mystic-soul there is no need to construct outward temples made of wood and stone, as the human body itself is already the ideal temple of the Spirit. I’m sure this "Kingdom of God is within you" message of the Gnostic or mystical gospels is one of the reasons why they were not politically useful to some spiritual bureaucrats in antiquity and were banned. Mary's contemplative view of the teachings of Christ is in harmony with the wisdom of countless saints, mystics and masters, that the focus is "within", not elsewhere in the outer world of the five senses, the kingdoms of this world. Thus, contemplative meditation for mystics serves as a kind of heavenly "portal" or "doorway" to the Divine:


"I left the world with the aid of another world; a design was erased, by virtue of a higher design. Henceforth I travel toward Repose, where time rests in the Eternity of Time; I go now into Silence.’ Having said all this, Mary became silent, for it was in silence that the Teacher spoke to her.'"  ​(The Gospel of Mary Magdalene)

IMAGE: The early Jesus movement (the Hebrew Christians or Ebionites) seem to have reinterpreted these images used around the Mediterranean world for the sun god and moon goddess, adopting them, transforming them into the earliest icons of their own faith: the sun of god Christ and his companion Mary of Magdala, surrounded by the Twelve Apostles (related to the twelve signs of the zodiac).



Spiritual Awakening Radio (and Sant Mat Satsang Podcasts) with James Bean, heard on various community, public radio stations and the web, explores the world of spirituality, comparative religion, world scriptures and other books, East and West, God, meditation, out-of-body or near-death experiences (inner space), the vegan diet and other ahimsa ethics -- education for a more peaceful planet.

Satsang Discourse by Baba Ram Singh: When We Sit Lovingly and With Affection and So Our Meditation and Simran and Dhyan Within, Then the Master Also Showers His Grace, and He Manifests the Shabd Within. So, Shabd is the Biggest Thing.


When We Sit Lovingly and With Affection and So Our Meditation and Simran and Dhyan Within, Then the Master Also Showers His Grace, and He Manifests the Shabd Within. So, Shabd is the Biggest Thing. -- From A Satsang Discourse by Baba Ram Singh






Swami Ji Maharaj says, “You have to control your senses. You have to lock up all your senses and all your desires, which are all your lust, anger, greed, attachment, ego, all of that. You have to refrain from all of this if you want to progress on this Path.”


Also, if you are now a devotee on this Path, then you should also have control of the senses of your ears, your nose, and your tongue.


The sense of the ear is responsible for almost sixty percent of the outwardly thought processes that we carry because it loves to listen to all the slandering and all the other things. People want to talk about each other and all the gossip, and it keeps us dissipated in the world because of this. So, we have to refrain from doing all of this. We have to control that sense, and our attention should be within, towards the God Almighty, towards our Master.


The other is the sense of our eyesight, our eyes, which again are responsible for a lot of outward distractions. For a devotee, this also has to be well within control.


Likewise, also the nose, our sense of smell, that also gets attracted to all the nice smells and aromas and does not like all the bad and foul smell. So, the devotee has also to refrain and control himself from the sense of smell.


The other is the sense of our tongue, our taste. And it is this sense, which again draws us to eat all kinds of tasty foods, which also have an influence on the mind. So, a devotee should accept the food that he gets as given to him by the God Almighty, by his Guru, and with that, it helps and it has a lot of good influence on his devotion and his meditation.


If we are able to control all of these senses, we focus our attention within, we are compassionate, we are humble and we are not carried away by all these senses, then we get the Grace of the Master earlier than later.


Indri thaan bishay ko tyaago,

Surt shabd mein nitt lagaana.

Saar padaarath guru se paa'o,

Charan kanval mein preet barrhaana.


When we sit lovingly and with affection and do our meditation and Simran and Dhyan within, then the Master also showers His Grace, and He manifests the Shabd within. So, Shabd is the biggest thing. And once that is manifested within, our mind, which is completely outwardly focused, and our attention, which is outwardly focused, completely gets under control, because of the Shabd within.


Because in this Shabd, there is so much enjoyment, there is so much intoxication, that the mind stays focused on the Shabd and it kicks away all of its worldly, outwardly pursuits. So, it is only with a still mind that the Sar Shabd gets manifested within. And the mind gets still because of the Shabd, which gets manifested first. The mind also then comes to know of its True Self. It realizes that it is not the senses, it is not this body, and it realizes that it is a part of the Brahm, and it starts going towards that. Once the mind gets on the Path, it helps the soul also to progress upwards and towards God Almighty. And the two together then progress upwards.


So, other than Surat Shabd, there is no other means for controlling the mind. Swami Ji Maharaj has said, “With more than one crore efforts that one would put forth, the mind cannot be controlled. The mind is only controlled with the listening to the Shabd within.” The Shabd is the Grace of the Satguru, or the Master, and only with His Grace, this Shabd gets manifested within.


Saar padaarath guru se paa'o,

Charan kanval mein preet barrhaana.

Dhaara agam pakarr surt jorro,

Is satsang mein sada samaana.


Swami Ji Maharaj says, “There are two types of Satsangs.” One is the Satsang that the Master says through His mouth and in His presence when we listen to Him. That is one Satsang. The other Satsang is when the Shabd gets manifested within and our soul gets connected to the Shabd. Then, at that point, that is the second Satsang that Swami Ji Maharaj points to.


Once the soul gets connected to the Shabd within, it realizes this full illusion of Kal and Maya. It realizes that we have got nothing to do with all this illusion, and it realizes the Reality. And then, True Love for the Master gets manifested within because we understand this full illusion outside. And the soul and the mind get focused at the Lotus Feet of the Master.


So, these are the two Satsangs. The Satsang within, when the soul gets connected to the Shabd and it realizes itself and realizes the Reality; and the Satsang that the Masters give outside, to encourage the souls to go within.


Dhaara agam pakarr surt jorro,

Is satsang mein sada samaana.

Chali surat nabh dwaara jhaanka,

Anda teen lok darsaana.


When the soul gets connected to the Shabd, it travels on the Shabd, with the Shabd upwards, and then it comes to know of all of the three worlds. And it understands the reality of wonder, which is the physical, astral, and causal world.


So, when do we realize the Truth? We realize the Truth when the soul gets connected to the Shabd, and that Shabd, the manifestation of that Shabd, is what Masters say is the True Naam. Shabd is the only means to go back to God Almighty. The soul has descended from the God Almighty into this world by means of the Shabd Itself, and the Shabd Itself acts as a ladder for the soul to go back to the God Almighty.

"As the aspirant rises into the higher realms of life, he discovers that this is indeed the only true freedom to which a human being can aspire. It is the freedom from bondage to his lower self, the fears, fantasies, hatreds, preferences and dreams which haunt him as he walks the long road of recurring births and deaths. Man, individually and collectively, can never be truly free on this physical plane of existence; only the individual who has attained higher spiritual consciousness, fulfilling his true birthright, has attained freedom in the most complete sense of the word."

Podcast: Lost Psalms of the New Testament Restored: The Book of the ODES

 


Podcast: Lost Psalms of the New Testament Restored: The Book of the ODES






Let's Explore the Would-Be Book of New Testament Psalms: THE ODES -- The Restoration of the Hymnbook of Early Christianity, Today on Spiritual Awakening Radio. The Odes got misnamed, misunderstood, misfiled, misplaced somewhere along the way becoming one of those Lost Books of the Bible. As far as I am concerned, The Book of the Odes, is the greatest extra-canonical or apocryphal scripture of all time. This mysterious collection of ancient psalms known as, The Book of the Odes, composed in Syriac- Aramaic, has been described as "some of the most beautiful songs of peace and joy that the world possesses." We are grateful for the restoration of the Hymnbook of Early Christianity, the would-be book of New Testament psalms!

A Successful Spiritual Practice Begins With Simran (Remembrance) of God's Names and Meditation -- Sant Mat Satsang Podcast -- Spiritual Awakening Radio

 

A Successful Spiritual Practice Begins With Simran (Remembrance) of God's Names and Meditation -- Sant Mat Satsang Podcast -- Spiritual Awakening Radio





Our awareness is rather tethered to the material plane. Our minds are captivated by countless thoughts, worries, anxieties, memories, impressions, and attachments. For there to be any hope for us to make spiritual progress during this lifetime, this time through, we must call upon a Hidden Power, and discover the Grace of the Divine, in order to catapult our consciousness right out of this universe into the vast Heavenly Realms Beyond.


As it says in the Gospel of Mary Magdalene:  "I left the world with the aid of Another World; a design was erased by virtue of a Higher Design. Henceforth I travel toward Repose, where time rests in the Eternity of Time; I go now into Silence."

Meister Eckhart: "If the soul is to see God, then it must see no temporal thing, for as long as the soul is conscious of time or space, or of an idea, it cannot know God."


Even as the Hubble Space Telescope had to be placed above the turbulence and distortion of earth’s atmosphere in order to see clearly into the cosmos, so too the mystic needs to rise above body-consciousness and mind to know that Other Realm we also are part of as spiritual beings.


The awareness or attention of the soul (surat) must become untethered and free from the temporal world of the five senses, mental images and memories during meditation practice in order to experience that Other Realm of Spirit that we inhabit. Not many are willing to look through this particular "lens" of the Third or Single Eye and see for themselves, taking the time to do this and enter into the silence and stillness beyond the physical, dream, and mental states and, "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10)

Maharshi Mehi’s Hymn to His Satguru



Maharshi Mehi’s Hymn to His Satguru



Baba Devi Sahib (left), Maharshi Mehi Paramhans (right)


"Great praise to Satguru Devi Sahib!

This world is like a dark terrifying well;

The center of the body as well is full of darkness,

Lying midst darkness, the individual self,

Forgetting its home and spiritual self, is variously afflicted,

In absence of the Satguru, the individual self is extremely tortured,

There is no one, except the Satguru, who will be able to solve the puzzle;

And clear the deep darkness and help the individual self to cross this Ocean-like world [samsara],

And reach his home where this Absolute Happiness is;

The Satguru exhorts all present in a clear voice,

That the way to one’s own [true] home is entirely different from the external world,

That path is neither in water nor among the stones nor in the universe,

It is located within the body of the individual self,

Maharshi Mehi says that Baba Devi Sahib is a real Satguru,

One wishing to reach one’s home should seek the Satguru’s shelter

That will help pursue the pathway leading to one’s home."


-- Maharshi Mehi Paramhans, Padavali # 32

How Much Time to Spend in Meditation? Sant Mat Satsang Podcast -- Spiritual Awakening Radio

 


How Much Time to Spend in Meditation? How Much Time to Devote to the Timeless? -- Sant Mat Satsang Podcast -- Spiritual Awakening Radio






With meditation, the goal of the saints, mystics and masters goes far beyond stress or anxiety reduction. Being centered and calm are the foundation or launching pad for the exploration of Inner Space, the Realms of the Spirit, the Kingdom of the Heavens Within. For some this might mean gaining a subtle awareness of inner seeing and hearing. For others it might be the beginning of a consciously induced near-death experience, soul travel into New Worlds of Light, Love, and the Divine Music of the Spheres.

Tithe Ten Percent of the Day to Meditation Practice, Which Equals Two and a Half Hours


For a recent Sant Mat satsang podcast I gathered materials from various Masters, mystics and scriptures addressing the question of, How Much Time to Spend in Meditation? as it's a key make-or-break sort of issue for those of us mystic explorers of Inner Space, the Kingdom of the Heavens or Higher Planes of Consciousness. Below are a couple of quintessential passages on this subject of How Much Time Should We Devote to the Timeless?


In, The Night is a Jungle, Sant Kirpal Singh writes:


"All Masters tell the devotees to do their simran and bhajan. Hazur used to say, 'You people give one tenth of your earnings, so you should also give one tenth of your time.' One tenth of a day is two and a half hours. Some sit for merely five minutes, some for half an hour, and many not at all. Others sit when the occasion fits their mood. If the connection which is given at initiation is not increased, what happens? The attention remains outward and does not withdraw and invert. A person may sit hours on end and others may think he is a devoted meditator, but inside he sees nothing!


"Awake! This is the time to understand what is what! The Masters come, lift up their hands, and shout to the world, 'Do your meditation, for without it you cannot be free...'"


"The Masters all explain the Truth in very simple terms: The Masters in truth say, make your meditation. Listen! Open your ears and listen! He who has made his meditation has made everything. He whose meditation is not made will enjoy no meaning in his life's achievements. There is great purpose behind this emphasis on the importance of meditation. If your daily life is not under control, try to bring it in control, or, give more time to meditation and you will be able to gain control quicker... Get the full benefit of meditation, and increase it day by day. The more you increase it, the nearer will you advance toward your goal. If you refuse, the day will come when you will be filled with regret for the lost opportunity." (Kirpal Singh, The Night is a Jungle)



On the Grace of the Masters and various amounts of time, Baba Ram Singh writes: 


"For those who have not meditated, but have not lost faith in the Master and they have been listening to Satsang, even for such people, the Masters come at the time of their death. However, the bliss and enjoyment and happiness, which a devotee who is meditating regularly enjoys, is not as much enjoyed by these people because these people have not meditated, have not redeemed their karmas, and are not in a position to enjoy and get the benefit of that bliss as much. However, Masters are very graceful and They take the soul, and then keep the soul in the Sahasdal Kamal.


"Also, the devotees who may not have meditated for two, two and a half hours, but have been meditating regularly, even for a shorter period of say an hour or so, and they have love and affection and devotion for the Master, the Master comes to take them also. And He keeps them in the Par Brahm, at the Mukhti Pad, the place of liberation. Where the devotees love their Master, and there are affection and devotion for the Master, and there is no attachment for any worldly matters and no further desires, the Master takes such souls, and even takes them straight to Sach Khand.


"It is only the love of worldly things, worldly desires, which stop the soul from going all the way to Sach Khand. So then, they have to wait at the planes in-between and complete their devotion.


"Therefore, with a lot of Grace, we have got the human life and this is the door of liberation. It is in this life form that we have the chance of getting liberated and getting out of the clutches of Kal and the ocean of life. So, we should, therefore, withdraw from our worldly desires and get our love and affection focused on the Feet of the Master and get liberated in this life and go back to our True Home." (Baba Ram Singh)



"The wheel of time rotates, but its axis is ever at rest.


"God is the axis of the wheel of Time. Though all things rotate about Him in Time and Space, yet is He always timeless and space-less and still. Though all things proceed from His Word, yet is His Word as timeless and space-less as He.


"In the axis, all is peace. On the rim, all is commotion. Where would you rather be?


"I say to you, slip from the rim of Time into the axis and spare yourselves the nausea of motion. Let Time revolve about you; but you revolve not with Time." (Book of Mirdad)
