The Loving Testament of Saint John of Rila (vegan), Part 1 of 2

17:10

The Loving Testament of Saint John of Rila (vegan), Part 1 of 2

Saint John of Rila, also known as Saint Ivan Rilski, was the first Bulgarian hermit, who was revered as a saint while still living. Today he is honored as the patron saint of the Bulgarians, and is regarded as one of the most important holy figures in the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. Born around the year 876, in Shrino, Saint John of Rila, became a priest at the age of 25. He accepted the path of monkhood and secluded himself in isolated areas. It is said that Saint John of Rila performed many miracles in order to help the people. This extraordinary power brought him a lot of fame and numerous followers. Saint John of Rila also had disciples, to whom he lovingly bequeathed a Testament (Zavet) of wisdom. The Testament was a message of moral and spiritual guidance for his successors and the Bulgarian people. Today, we have the chance to contemplate on the first part of the Testament of Saint John of Rila. “First of all, I bequeath to you the obligation to preserve the holy faith immaculate and unaffected by any false teaching, just as we received it from the holy Fathers, without ‘being led away with diverse and strange teachings.’ Hold fast and keep the traditions you have heard and seen from me. Do not deviate either to the right, or to the left, but walk along the royal road. Keep yourselves carefully away from worldly fascinations and always remember why you have come out of the world, and why you have despised it and worldly things.” “Now again, keep yourselves away from the avaricious snake, ‘for the love of money is the root of all evil,’ according to the apostle, who calls it a second idolatry. Because for the hermit wealth consists not in silver and gold, but in perfect poverty, in the denial of his personal will, and in lofty humbleness. I am not telling you this as my commandments, but [I am] recalling for you the commandments of Christ. For He told His holy disciples and through them everybody who had renounced the world: ‘Take no gold, nor silver, nor a bag, nor copper in your belts’ and so on.” “But seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.” “As the grace of the Holy Spirit brought you together, so must you endeavor to live with one heart and one mind and one spirit, directing your eyes only towards the eternal reward, which God has prepared for those who have loved Him.”

Selections from “Pioneers of the Soul” by Hilda Charlton (vegetarian): Chapter 2 – The Real You, Part 2 of 2

10:48

Selections from “Pioneers of the Soul” by Hilda Charlton (vegetarian): Chapter 2 – The Real You, Part 2 of 2

“Make God your goal. Do all the other things you have to do and be grateful for any job you have, but let God be foremost in your mind.” “You have been brainwashed with labels from birth, and now it is time to think for yourself, from deep in your intuition, about what truth is. Jesus left us a gift of freedom, and we are made new by accepting this gift of the Spirit. It is so simple. We give up our little ego’s opinions in exchange for the great spiritual truths, the truths that have existed in all the ages since the world was created. We let in the light of truth, and we are free. Know the truth and it shall set you free from the bondage of your self.” “What is that truth? The one and only truth is that we were created perfect and perfect shall we be.” “It is time for all of us to be reborn back into the consciousness of God, back into this great consciousness which is like a great universe. Let us step over all the pebbles and the dirt and the muck we’ve put here and walk back into the consciousness of God. Let’s say you’re in the consciousness of God, and then you get petty and complain, ‘That person said this about me.’ You’re right out again, out of the Garden of Eden. So you say, ‘Oh no. I’m out again.’ Nothing doing! Cut! Cut that thought. Cut! And back in you go, into the consciousness of God, and say, ‘That person must’ve had a bad time to be so mean. I will send that person unconditional love.’ It’s as simple as that. We have to keep unconditional love all the time.” “As quickly as the negative thought comes, say, ‘Cut.’ Go back with a good thought, and you’re in the consciousness of God again. You’re in attunement and you’re in safety, no matter what happens around you.”

The Lotus - Jainism's Holy Sutrakritanga Sutra: Book II, Lecture 1, Part 2 of 2

The Lotus - Jainism's Holy Sutrakritanga Sutra: Book II, Lecture 1, Part 2 of 2

We present to you today, excerpts from Book II – Lecture 1, from Jainism’s Sutrakritanga Sutra. Second Book First Lecture The Lotus “Thus, some shameless men becoming monks propagate a Law of their own. And others believe it, put their faith in it, adopt it, (saying:) ‘Well, you speak the truth, O Brahmana, (or) O Sramana! We shall present you with food, drink, spices, with a robe, a bowl, or a broom.’ Some have been induced to honor them, some have made (their proselytes) to honor them. Before (entering an order) they were determined to become Sramanas, houseless, poor monks who would have neither sons nor cattle, to eat only what should be given them by others, and to commit no sins. After having entered their order, they do not cease (from sins), they themselves commit sins, they cause others to commit sins, and they assent to another's committing sins. Thus they are given to pleasures, amusements, and sensual lust; they are greedy, fettered, passionate, covetous, the slaves of love and hate; therefore, they cannot free themselves (from the Circle of Births), nor free anybody else from it, nor free any other of the four kinds of living beings from it.” “Thus, I have treated of the first man (as one who believes that) soul and body are one and the same thing. Now I shall treat of the second man (as one who believes that) everything consists of the five elements.” “Now I shall treat of the third man (who believes that) the Self is the cause of everything. Here in the East, teach this religion well. ‘Here all things have the Self for their cause and their object, they are produced by the Self, they are manifested by the Self, they are intimately connected with the Self, they are bound up in the Self.” “These worthless men entertain such opinions, and believe in them till they cannot return, (down to) amusements. I have treated of the fourth man who believes that Fate is the cause of everything. These four men, differing in intellect, will, character, opinions, taste, undertakings, and plans, have left their former occupations, but have not entered the noble path. They cannot return (to worldly life) nor get beyond it; they stick (as it were) in pleasures and amusements.”

The Teaching of Vimalakirti – Chapter 9: The Dharma-Door of Non-duality, Part 2 of 2

13:12

The Teaching of Vimalakirti – Chapter 9: The Dharma-Door of Non-duality, Part 2 of 2

“The Bodhisattva Akṣayamati declared, ‘The dedication of generosity for the sake of attaining omniscience is dualistic. The nature of generosity is itself omniscience, and the nature of omniscience itself is total dedication. Likewise, it is dualistic to dedicate morality, tolerance, effort, meditation, and wisdom for the sake of omniscience. Omniscience is the nature of wisdom, and total dedication is the nature of omniscience. Thus, the entrance into this principle of uniqueness is the entrance into non-duality.’” “The Bodhisattva Gambhīrabuddhi declared, ‘It is dualistic to say that voidness is one thing, signlessness another, and wishlessness still another. What is void has no sign. What has no sign has no wish. Where there is no wish there is no process of thought, mind, or consciousness. To see the doors of all liberations in the door of one liberation is the entrance into non-duality.’” “When the Bodhisattvas had given their explanations, they all addressed the Crown Prince Mañjuśrī: ‘Mañjuśrī, what is the Bodhisattva’s entrance into non-duality?’ Mañjuśrī replied, ‘Good sirs, you have all spoken well. Nevertheless, all your explanations are themselves dualistic. To know no one teaching, to express nothing, to say nothing, to explain nothing, to announce nothing, to indicate nothing, and to designate nothing— that is the entrance into non-duality.’” “Then, the Crown Prince Mañjuśrī said to the Licchavi Vimalakīrti, ‘We have all given our own teachings, noble sir. Now, may you elucidate the teaching of the entrance into the principle of non-duality!’ Thereupon, the Licchavi Vimalakīrti kept his silence, saying nothing at all. The Crown Prince Mañjuśrī applauded the Licchavi Vimalakīrti: ‘Excellent! Excellent, noble sir! This is indeed the entrance into the non-duality of the Bodhisattvas. Here there is no use for syllables, sounds, and ideas.’” “When these teachings had been declared, 5,000 Bodhisattvas entered the door of the Dharma of non-duality and attained tolerance of the birthlessness of things.”

Selections from “The World’s Advance Thought” – a Periodical by Lucy A. Mallory (vegetarian): The New Dispensation, Part 1 of 2

13:02

Selections from “The World’s Advance Thought” – a Periodical by Lucy A. Mallory (vegetarian): The New Dispensation, Part 1 of 2

“The Spirited Monthly Newspaper – The World’s Advance Thought” was a monthly periodical founded by Lucy A. Mallory in 1886. The paper’s motto was “Love is the way, the truth, and the life.” Mrs. Lucy Mallory contributed her own spiritual writings as well as the inspired contributions of others. She served as writer, editor and publisher of the paper, which had an international readership that included renowned Russian author and vegetarian, Leo Tolstoy. Through this uplifting publication, Lucy Mallory highlighted themes that emphasized the “inner light” of the human being. She also advocated vegetarianism for its loving kindness to other beings. We now share with you selections from the periodical – “The World’s Advance Thought.” “The thought planted in your mind is a seed, and it will grow there and bear fruit of the same kind as the seed you planted. Good thought seeds bear fruit that give good. ‘As ye sow, so shall ye reap.’ Constructive planting is reaping its harvest. Destructive sowing is reaping its harvest. The present-day man has come to his limit. Now comes a Superior Being who will bring the whole world into Divine Union. The Mighty Power of Love shall work its Wonders, and Peace - Divine Peace - shall reign! Spiritualism has rooted now, and will soon begin to bear Spiritual Fruit. The public memory is now going to be long on Good, and short on bad.” “The human soul’s demand for truth being eternally continuous, and the supply being eternally inexhaustible, it is impossible to formulate abiding religious systems of perfection. While a religious system, as a moral influence, may be above the spiritual thought of the mass of its faithful followers, the spiritual thought of individuals will ever be above the most advanced religious system. Creeds, in their highest forms and purest conditions, cannot from the very nature of things dispense and conserve the highest spiritual truth; they express past conceptions, and must, therefore, ever be behind the most advanced spiritual thought.” “The Light that lights every one that comes into the world, and all intelligences above and below, as well as in the degree of the individual, is spiritual consciousness. The season has its degree, as has the planet, and the object of the experiences, each and all, is to expand and extend the consciousness.”

True Monk: Selections from Jainism's Holy Sutrakritanga Sutra, Book II, Lecture 1 – The Lotus, Part 2 of 2

12:06

True Monk: Selections from Jainism's Holy Sutrakritanga Sutra, Book II, Lecture 1 – The Lotus, Part 2 of 2

“A monk who does not act, nor kill, who is free from wrath, pride, deceit, and greed, who is calm and happy, should not entertain the following wish: May I, after my departure from this world, by dint of my intellect, knowledge, memory, learning, or of the performance of austerities, religious duties, chastity, or of this habit to eat no more than is necessary to sustain life, become a god at whose command are all objects of pleasure, or a perfected saint who is exempt from pain and misery. (Through his austerities) he may obtain his object, or he may not obtain it. A monk should not be infatuated with sounds, colors, smells, tastes, and feelings of touch; he should abstain from wrath, pride, deceit, and greed, from love, hate, quarrel, calumny, reviling of others, aversion to control and delight in sensual things, deceit and untruth, and the sin of wrong belief. In this way a monk ceases to acquire gross karma, controls himself, and abstains from sins. He does not kill movable or immovable beings, nor has them killed by another person, nor does he consent to another’s killing them. In this way a monk ceases to acquire gross karma, controls himself, and abstains from sins. He does not acquire sentient or senseless objects of pleasure, nor has them acquired by another person, nor does he consent to another’s acquiring them.” “A monk who knows the proper measure in all things travelling in one direction or other, should teach, explain, and praise the Law (spiritual precepts), preach it unto those who exert themselves well, and to those who do not, to all who come to listen. He should preach to them indifference for the peace of mind, cessation of passion, Nirvana, purity, simplicity, humility, freedom from bonds. He should preach the Law which prohibits to kill any living being, after having well considered it. When a monk preaches the Law (spiritual precepts), he should preach it not for the sake of food, drink, clothes, resting-place, or lodging, nor for any objects of pleasure; but he should preach the Law indefatigably, for no other motive than the annihilation of karma. Those heroes of faith who are instructed in the Law (spiritual precepts), by such a monk and exert themselves well, are possessed of all virtues, abstain from all sins, cease from all passions, conduct themselves well in every way, and reach final beatitude.”

Obedience and Righteousness before the Lord: Selection from the Holy Tanakh’s Book of Samuel, Part 1 of 2

16:09

Obedience and Righteousness before the Lord: Selection from the Holy Tanakh’s Book of Samuel, Part 1 of 2

Judaism’s history begins around 2000 BCE with the Covenant between God (Elohim) and Abraham. Over a thousand years later, as the Jewish faithful Believe, God's (Elohim’s) laws and commandments were revealed to Prophet Moses on Mount Sinai, forming the Torah, which is the first part of the Hebrew Bible. The Hebrew Bible, or Tanakh, and the ancient writings of the Talmud, embody the beliefs and practices of Judaism. Present in every aspect of the religion is a single, omniscient, and compassionate God (Elohim). The Holy Tanakh’s Book of Samuel is the third book in the Neviim (Prophets), and the second section of the Holy Tanakh. Filled with succinct messages through the depicted stories, the Book of Samuel is dedicated to giving the right directions for those who seek their way to God. Today, we will read excerpts from Chapters 15, 16 and 18 from the Book of Samuel in the Holy Tanakh. The chosen stories in these chapters enlighten us on the importance of obeying God’s commandments, as a key to a life of righteousness and goodness. “And Samuel said to Saul, ‘The Lord sent me to anoint you to be king over His people, over Israel…’ The word of the Lord came to Samuel, saying, ‘I regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned back from following Me, and he has not fulfilled My words.’” “‘Has the Lord (as much) desire in burnt offerings and peace-offerings, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than an offering; to hearken (is better) than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim. Since you rejected the word of the Lord, He has rejected you from being a king.’ “And Saul said to Samuel, ‘I have sinned, for I transgressed the Lord’s command, and your words, for I feared the people, and I hearkened to their voice. And now, forgive now my sin, and return with me, and I shall prostrate myself to the Lord.’” “And Samuel said to Saul, ‘I shall not return with you, for you have rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord has rejected you from being a king over Israel.’” “And the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Look not upon his appearance, or the height of his stature, for I have rejected him, for it is not as man sees, (what is visible) to the eyes, while the Lord sees into the heart.’”

On the Good Red Road: Selections from “Black Elk Speaks,” Part 2 of 2

12:15

On the Good Red Road: Selections from “Black Elk Speaks,” Part 2 of 2

“Now the fifth Grandfather spoke, the oldest of them all, the Spirit of the Sky. ‘My boy,’ he said, ‘I have sent for you and you have come. My power you shall see!’ He stretched his arms and turned into a spotted eagle hovering. ‘Behold,’ he said, ‘all the wings of the air shall come to you, and they and the winds and the stars shall be like relatives. You shall go across the Earth with my power.’” “Now I knew the sixth Grandfather was about to speak, he who was the Spirit of the Earth, and I saw that he was very old, but more as men are old.” “I stared at him, for it seemed I knew him somehow; and as I stared, he slowly changed, for he was growing backwards into youth, and when he had become a boy, I knew that he was myself with all the years that would be mine at last. When he was old again, he said: ‘My boy, have courage, for my power shall be yours, and you shall need it, for your nation on the Earth will have great troubles. Come.’” “You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round. In the old days when we were a strong and happy people, all our power came to us from the sacred hoop of the nation, and so long as the hoop was unbroken, the people flourished. The flowering tree was the living center of the hoop, and the circle of the four quarters nourished it. The East gave peace and light, the South gave warmth, the West gave rain, and the North with its cold and mighty wind gave strength and endurance. This knowledge came to us from the outer world with our religion. Everything the Power of the World does is done in a circle. The sky is round, and I have heard that the Earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars.” “The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same, and both are round. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.” Throughout history, from culture to culture, there's a common thread in every spiritual belief. It is the understanding that we can only fulfill our higher purpose on Earth by letting go of the ego and being united with the God, or the Great Spirit.

Selections from Writings of Shoghi Effendi (vegetarian): “The Promised Day Is Come,” Part 2 of 2

13:59

Selections from Writings of Shoghi Effendi (vegetarian): “The Promised Day Is Come,” Part 2 of 2

“‘Bestir yourselves, O people,’ is, on the one hand, the ominous warning sounded by Bahá’u’lláh Himself, ‘in anticipation of the days of Divine Justice, for the promised hour is now come.’ ‘Abandon that which ye possess, and seize that which God, Who layeth low the necks of men, hath brought. Know ye of a certainty that if ye turn not back from that which ye have committed, chastisement will overtake you on every side, and ye shall behold things more grievous than that which ye beheld aforetime.’ And again: ‘We have fixed a time for you, O people! If ye fail, at the appointed hour, to turn towards God, He, verily, will lay hold on you.’ And again: ‘God assuredly dominates the lives of them that wronged Us, and is well aware of their doings. He will most certainly lay hold on them for their sins.’ And finally: ‘O ye peoples of the world! Know verily that an unforeseen calamity is following you and that grievous retribution awaiteth you. Think not the deeds ye have committed have been blotted from My sight. By My Beauty! All your doings hath My pen graven with open characters upon tablets of golden stone.’ ‘The whole Earth,’ Bahá’u’lláh, on the other hand, forecasting the bright future in store for a world now wrapt in darkness, emphatically asserts, ‘is now in a state of pregnancy. The day is approaching when it will have yielded its noblest fruits, when from it will have sprung forth the loftiest trees, the most enchanting blossoms, the most heavenly blessings.’ ‘The time is approaching when every created thing will have cast its burden. Glorified be God Who hath vouchsafed this grace that encompasses all things, whether seen or unseen!’ ‘These great oppressions,’ He, moreover, foreshadowing humanity’s Golden Age, has written, ‘are preparing it for the advent of the Most Great Justice.’ This Most Great Justice is indeed the Justice upon which the structure of the Most Great Peace can alone, and must eventually, rest, while the Most Great Peace will, in turn, usher in that Most Great, that World Civilization which shall remain forever associated with Him Who beareth the Most Great Name.” “‘We verily,’ He Himself has testified, ‘have not fallen short of Our duty to exhort men, and to deliver that whereunto I was bidden by God, the Almighty, the All-Praised. Had they hearkened unto Me, they would have beheld the earth another earth.’ And again: ‘Is there any excuse left for anyone in this Revelation? No, by God, the Lord of the Mighty Throne! My signs have encompassed the earth, and My power enveloped all mankind, and yet the people are wrapped in a strange sleep!’”

Jesus Christ - The Same Yesterday, Today, And Forever: Sermon by Jonathan Edwards, Part 1 of 2

15:10

Jesus Christ - The Same Yesterday, Today, And Forever: Sermon by Jonathan Edwards, Part 1 of 2

Jonathan Edwards was an acknowledged American philosophical theologian, born in 1703, into the family of notable Congregational ministers, in Connecticut. Jonathan Edwards wrote sermons and theological treatises that emphasized the absolute sovereignty, as well as the beauty and holiness of God. He contemplated on the divine virtues as an imitation of the loveliness and benevolence of the Creator. Today, we will read a selection from Jonathan Edwards’ sermon entitled, “Jesus Christ - The Same Yesterday, Today, And Forever.” “When it is said that Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, by yesterday is meant all time past; by today, the time present; and by forever, all that is future, from the present time to eternity. Doctrine: Jesus Christ is the same now that He ever has been and ever will be. Christ is thus unchangeable in two respects.” “I. In His divine nature. As Christ is one of the persons of the Trinity, He is God, and so has the divine nature, or the Godhead dwelling in Him, and all the divine attributes belong to Him, of which immutability or unchangeableness is one. Christ, in His human nature was not absolutely unchangeable, though His human nature, by reason of its union with the divine, was not liable to those changes to which it was liable, as a mere creature.” “II. Christ is unchangeable in His office. He is unchangeable as the Mediator and Savior. That unchangeableness of Christ in His office of Mediator, appears in several things. ‘First, He is an everlasting Savior. There have been typical mediators, many that have continued but a little while, and then have passed away, and others have come in their room. There have been prophets, that have been raised up, and these have died, and others have succeeded them.’” “But Christ’s ministry never ceases. ‘Christ is a minister of the true tabernacle and the true sanctuary, which the Lord has built, and not man.’ ‘Second, Christ is at all times equally sufficient for the office He has undertaken. He undertook the office from eternity, and He was sufficient for it from eternity.’ ‘Third, He is now, and ever will be, the same that He ever has been in the disposition and will, which He exercises in His office.’”

The Supreme Divine Nature, The Beginningless Beginning: Excerpts from “A Conversation Among Five Travelers Concerning Life’s True Happiness” by Hryhorii Skovoroda (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

13:31

The Supreme Divine Nature, The Beginningless Beginning: Excerpts from “A Conversation Among Five Travelers Concerning Life’s True Happiness” by Hryhorii Skovoroda (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

“Let us first seek out the spark of God’s truth within us, which, lighting up our darkness, will send us to the holy waters of Siloam to which the prophet summons us: ‘Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings...’ If the heart is filled up with a bitter sea of opinions, if a pit of evil has swallowed up the soul, what light can we hope for among the dark swarm of sorrows? What mirth and sweetness can we hope for where there is no light? What peace where there is neither life nor mirth? What life and peace if there is no God? What God without the spirit of truth and the spirit of dominion? What spirit of truth without unworldly thoughts and a pure heart?”“My friends, let us fully live out our lives and let our senseless days and minutes flow past. We take the trouble to get whatever is needful to the flux of our days; but our chief concern should be for the peace of our soul, that is, for its life, health, and salvation. What is the use of ruling over the universe if we lose our own soul? What will you find in the world so precious and profitable that you would venture to exchange your soul for it?”“In man the head of all things is the human heart. It is that which is most truly human in man: everything else is peripheral, as Jeremiah teaches: ‘Deep is the heart of man (above all things); it is man, and who can know it?’ Please, take note that the deep heart is man...”“You see that a man who has destroyed the peace of his heart has destroyed his head and root. Is he not just like a nut, the kernel of which has been eaten away by worms, so that it has no strength, only a shell? The Lord speaks to these impoverished people with such compassion in Isaiah: ‘Come ye near unto me, ye who have lost your hearts and are far from the truth.’”“Thought, like a traveler on the road, seeks its own likeness among the dead elements, and intensifying, rather than slaking its thirst by base diversions, it moves the more rapidly from corrupt material nature toward the Supreme Divine nature, the beginningless beginning or principle which is akin to it, so that having been purified by its radiance and by the flame of its secret vision, it may free itself from its bodily earth and earthly body.”

Obedience and Righteousness before the Lord: Selection from the Holy Tanakh’s Book of Samuel, Part 2 of 2

16:55

Obedience and Righteousness before the Lord: Selection from the Holy Tanakh’s Book of Samuel, Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with the selection of Chapters 18 and 24 from the Book of Samuel in the Holy Tanakh. The story told here, which includes King Saul and the future king of Israel King David, is a story of how when blessed with God’s presence, the soul is always protected in the strength of benevolence and virtues. “And David went out; wherever Saul would send him, he would succeed; accordingly, Saul appointed him over the soldiers, and he was pleasing in the eyes of all the people, and also in the eyes of Saul’s servants.” “And Saul feared David, for the Lord was with him, while He had turned away from Saul. And Saul removed him from (being) with him, and made him for himself a captain over a thousand, and he went out and came in before the people. And David was successful in all his ways; and the Lord was with him. And Saul saw that he was very successful, and he feared him.” “And Saul said to David, ‘Behold, my elder daughter, Merab. I shall give her to you as a wife. But, be a warrior for me, and wage the wars of the Lord.’” “And David said to Saul, ‘Why should you listen to the words of a man, saying, “Behold, David seeks your harm”?’ Behold, this day your eyes have seen how the Lord delivered you today into my hand in the cave, and (one) said to kill you, but (my soul) had pity on you, and I said, ‘I shall not stretch forth my hand against my lord, for he is the Lord’s anointed.’ And Father, see! Also, see the skirt of your coat in my hand, for in that I severed the skirt of your coat and I did not kill you, know and see that there is neither evil nor transgression in my hand, and I have not sinned against you, but you are stalking my soul to take it.” “May the Lord judge between me and you, and may the Lord avenge me of you, but my hand shall not be upon you. As says the proverb of the ancient one; ‘From the wicked comes forth wickedness,’ and my hand shall not be upon you.” “And he said to David, ‘You are more righteous than I, for you have repaid me with goodness, while I have repaid you with evil. And you have shown today how you have dealt well with me, how the Lord delivered me into your hand, and you did not kill me. For when a man finds his enemy, does he send him away safely? And may the Lord repay you with goodness for what you have done to me on this day.”

Leaves of Morya’s Garden: Spiritual Guidance Recorded by Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 2 of 2

13:59

Leaves of Morya’s Garden: Spiritual Guidance Recorded by Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with the Venerated Master Morya’s profound and uplifting messages given to his disciples, and through them, to the world. “I rejoice in the smile undimmed by approaching fate. I shall grant the power to create good not with money but with spirit. Full of travail is your life, but vast are the depths of your happiness in the future victory of the spirit. Banish anger, and the path to Us will be easier. Not wrath, but ardent rapture creates. Be imperturbable — your illusions damage your health, but if you have faith in Me, know that you are guarded by the Care and Shield of Morya. Morya is aware of your hardships; a steep ascent is always difficult. To overcome fate requires fortitude. Be not downcast, for you have many times crossed these rapids.” “Be not dismayed at the Teacher’s criticisms. Pupils should rejoice at every message. Contemplate the spiritual guidance of One Teacher. Your spirit presses onward; At the Gates I will await you. My Breath shall warm your hands, and I will guide you along the mountain path to the Temple. Love Me and your power will be multiplied and your strength doubled. Your spirit transports your body beyond the Earth. You must rejoice in the ascension through pure teachings. There is no love greater than love.” “Naught occurs by accident. My Power is with you. We can change Our appearance. Through faith increase your strength.” “Love Me — your Spiritual Teacher. Your destiny is to bring the inextinguishable Light to ardent hearts. Realize the joy of fighting for My Cause. Easy is destruction, but you must build wisely. Being able to help is a great happiness.” “In the Universe all things are but a reflection of the Divine, and in each spark of light the Divine Energy is at play. Light unto all of you!” “Hearken to the Celestial Song, and when on the summits of the mountains pine not for the flowers in the valley. I rejoice in your striving for creation. Miracles are created in life amidst action and in tensed harmony. Dreams are realized not in fairy tales but through happy communion with the Ways of the Blessed Ones. The Teacher is near you at every moment of your creative labor. Learn — and teach.”
