Doubts and hesitations often accompany you in preliminary stages of the spiritual path. Plenty of questions come up, questions such as ‘Is the path I follow not some sort of fraud contrived to draw me into some unpleasant affair?’ … Many are afraid of getting caught up in a spiritual circle and having the surrender their will and freedom to a so-called-spiritual-leader. In this excerpt, The Master clarifies how doubts and hesitations on the spiritual path turn towards fear and darkness and not towards light and love.
Meditation comes in many forms. It has been said that a day without meditation is a day wasted. Medical and scientific research into meditation shows that it significantly reduces ageing, risk of heart attack, occurence of dementia and is observed to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. (For more information, check the back issues of New Scientist, e.g., May 2017). Here, the Master shares a new meditation which will most definitely lift one into loving closeness with the Beloved.
Faith is important to many people, and there are those who make faith their path to the Divine, their royal road to God. Religions enter via the mind by way of reason and faith; this is not the path to knowing and experiencing the love of God. Love is the path to Love. Nothing else will reach this path, except, perhaps, selfless service of one’s neighbour. Faith, propositions, theses nailed to cathedral doors do not lead a person to the experience of God’s love, and the mulitiplication of love in the human heart. The heart is the home of Love, the heart is the receptacle of God’s Love.
A great depth psychologist of the last century once said that the great sin of modern humanity was that they had recast God in their own image and likeness (Carl Gustav Jung, Memories, Dreams and Reflections). It is a challenge for any person to surrender and allow the Divine to reveal itself as it would do so for that person. It is somewhat like NDE’s, near death experience, where everyone encounters something beyond human categories of experience and expression and all come back and say a different thing. Here, the Master tells how God would like to be perceived.
Very early in life, most people learn that scarcity rules and money speaks all languages. Where is money and the trading of money in the stock markets in the spiritual life? Is money filthy lucre, or is money a sacred energy meant to be used for the service of mankind? Does Loving Divinity give hints about making money, trading, ending of markets, care for oneself, one’s family, one’s brothers and sisters in the society and culture? These and more questions we all have to resolve. Money is nothing to come between you and the turn towards Love, the learning of Love, the living with Love day by day. Money is an instrument, as The Master tells.
Many would think that God and Divinity is only found in so-called holy places. This is patently untrue, as The Master has been explaining in this series. Here, the Master helps one of his devotees to obtain his masters degree, and then his doctorate in areas perhaps know generally as Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity. While we recognise this term, few, if any, could follow into the depths of relativity and what is being uncovered today. Our pilgrim devotee tells the story of his approaching exams and how The Master helped him progress – and pass. Yet, at the very end of this telling-of-a-story-of-putting-the-inner-voice-first-in-life our storyteller tells how he wasted time. The Master reminds us we do not know tomorrow, and there are better ways to be productive.
The conversation begins with citing some prophecies that seem to have come true. The Master responds about the laws of creation and the laws of the Universe. The Master goes on to tell, the media should not be telling any spiritual person what to think; the answers are inside.
The task of the religions and spiritual pathways of humankind since ages past has been to show the path to oneness with divinity. Inevitably, in most human organisations, structure and order take over, teachings and ways of living – individually or in community – become dogmatic and institutionalised. Personal union with the divine is replaced with adherence to rules and so it goes. The Master – the Divine – the Divinity who loves you – however, is far beyond any structure or rule of living that humankind can invent. In this Message, the Creative Source of All offers four great secrets.
The conversation begins with asking, about suffering, and how One who loves the Master and lives with the Master day by day might help. The Master gives commentary on compassion, suffering and co-feeling.
The conversation begins with asking, “What do people ask of God?” Some surprising answers are given, and an adage: if we dig a grave for our opponent, we also dig a grave for ourselves. There is nothing so simple as the turn to God with love for God. Many signs are given, many answers are given for problems. The Master tells we use reason too much and make a complex situation out of many things that confront us. We need not go through life with a deadpan face, we can smile to life, smile with The Master and turn to the Master with a Smile! There are many blessings given with smiles!
