Spiritual Teachings #13 Christian

“The search after Truth is the one thing by which the shape of human life should be determined.

Genuine desire itself opens the road to fulfilment.”    

Sri Anandamayi Ma

“Be anchored in fearlessness. What is worldly life but fear!

When you live in the grip of fear, must you not be afraid? It is futile to expect fearlessness there.

That you may be delivered from all sorrow you should endeavour to let God be your one and only support.”

Sri Anandamayi Ma in Matri Vani

Devotee: If one realised the Self and acted up to it in the West, one would be locked up in a lunatic asylum.

Maharshi: You will be locking yourself in. Because the world is mad, it considers you mad.

Where is the lunatic asylum if it is not within. You will not be in it, but it will be in you.

Uncertainties, doubts and fears are natural to everyone until the Self is realised.

They are inseparable from the ego, rather they are the ego.

Sri Ramana Maharshi in Talks #612

“Look, in order to pluck a rose one has to put one’s hand into the midst of thorns.

But if the rose is a person’s aim and he has a keen desire to pluck it, he will not refrain from doing so for fear of being pricked.

Moreover, the Great Mother arranges whatever is necessary for each one.

She certainly knows the real need of every individual.

If one has at least this much faith, there is no reason at all to feel fear and distress…

Sustain the flow of God’s Name and no fear of any kind can exist is His Presence.”

Sri Anandamayi Ma

From the Mystic Treatises of Saint Isaac of Nineveh

As long as a man is negligent, he fears the hour of death; when, however, he comes near to God, he proceeds firmly and both kinds of fear are taken away. How does this happen? While his knowledge and his behavior are of a bodily nature, he is frightened by death. But when his knowledge is of a psychic nature, and his behavior is steadfast, his mind is moved by the thoughts of Judgement every moment. In the first state he belongs wholly to nature; in the psychic state he is moved and guided by his knowledge and by his discipline. And he is happy in the neighborhood of God. But when he reaches true knowledge by the motion of the apperception of God’s mysteries and he becomes confirmed in future hope, he is consumed by love.

He that is bodily fears as an animal fears being slaughtered; he who is rational fears the Judgement of God. He that has become a son, is pleasing to love, not to the staff of him who testifies. ‘I and my house will serve the Lord.’ (Joshua 24:15). For love annihilates fear. It not only fears but it even longs after departure. Love is the dissolver of temporary life. He that has reached the love of God, does not desire to stay here any more.

My beloved ones, because I was foolish, I could not bear to guard the secret in silence, but am become mad, for the sake of my brethren’s profit. For true love is not able to cling to the cause of love apart from friends.

Oft when I was writing these things, my fingers paused on the paper. They could not bear the delight which had fallen into the heart and which made the senses silent. Blessed is he that has constant intercourse with God and has withdrawn himself from worldly things, being with Him only, in intercourse founded upon his knowledge. And if he has to be patient, it will not be long before he sees fruits.

Gladness in God is stronger than earthly life. He that has found it, is not only free from the trial of the affections, but he does not even turn towards his life any longer. Furthermore, he has no other apperception, if he really has been deemed worthy of this.

Love is sweeter than life. An understanding concerning God, from which love is born, is sweeter than honey and the honeycomb. What is the sweetness of love which excels life? Love is not spiteful if it has to undergo a myriad of deaths for the sake of it’s friends.

Love of God Annihilates Fear

Rosicrucian Reflections #34

 

 

“The law of manifestation operates like a triangle: First, know what you want and visualize it as if you already had it; Second, see it behind the illusion of reality, practice it in your decisions, choose the people you hang out with, etc; Third, believe, have faith and work on your emotions to be at the right frequency. This triangle of manifestation is one of the secrets of many religions: Christianity, Scientology, and Freemasonry. In Masonry is seen as “heart, mind and desire”; in Scientology is perceived as “reality, communication and affinity”; in Christianity is understood as “Father, son and holy ghost”; basically, “actions, learnings and emotions”. In Christianity, the Father equals reality or the Creator of the illusion, the son is the way, the path, the road of our decisions and actions, and the holy ghost is our heart, instincts and desires manifested in that same path. In words, through Jesus, and with the power of the holy ghost, you reach God. This is an allegory that not many Christians can understand. Jesus represents behavior – right and wrong, the holy ghost is our faith, your heart and emotions reflecting back at you what you attract, it’s the energy that connects you to your dreams, and God represents the Architect of Reality. So, through moral behavior and positive emotions, your understand God and life, and then you receive “paradise”. This paradise is whatever you dream for yourself. Furthermore, if someone has shown you this way, he has been as an angel to you, a messenger of God; if someone stopped you from reaching it, he has been as a demon, a worker for Satan, the enemy, if you failed in seeing this path, you have redirected yourself towards hell. And if you hate your life, you are already in hell. If you want to get out of hell, you must accept the truth, and this truth is that you must know God, for He is the truth. He and the truth are one and the same.”

Be Ye Therefore Perfect

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

“But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

“And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

“And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

“Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy.

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

“That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

“For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same?

“And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so?

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

Matthew 5:38-48

Jesus’ Sermon On The Mount

And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and

when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

“Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of

heaven.

“Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

“Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after

righteousness: for they shall be filled.

“Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the

children of God.

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’

sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

“Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute

you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my

sake.

“Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward

in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were

before you.

“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his

savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for

nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of

men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill

cannot be hid.

“Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel,

but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the

house.

“Let you light so shine before men, that they may see your

good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

-Matthew  5:1 – 16
