Unity in Diversity through the Vegan Diet: Interview with Father Anthony Chang Sang Loy (vegan), Part 1 of 3

15:33

Unity in Diversity through the Vegan Diet: Interview with Father Anthony Chang Sang Loy (vegan), Part 1 of 3

The Reverend Father Anthony Chang Sang Loy is a Catholic priest residing in Hong Kong, who is well known for his numerous environmentally conscious undertakings through various groups and organizations. The Reverend is a compassionate vegan, believing that the peaceful plant-based diet has a major role in protecting the planet’s ecosystem and environment. He is the founder and chairman of the Catholic Messengers of Green Consciousness and the Hong Kong Catholic Vegetarian Association, organizations that aspire to bring about the essential peace among all of God’s creations, while the power to do so is still in our hands. Let us now meet the Reverend Father Anthony Chang and learn more about his interesting journey of faith and his pure impressions of the priesthood. “The idea of becoming a priest emerged when I got in touch with the priests. Observing them very much devoted to their work, I felt it was very good. At the same time, they were focused on God, their faith and Jesus Christ, and I also loved that. During that period, I had a deeper understanding of Christ, as He said that He had come to serve, and not to be served. He was willing to care about people and serve people, which fascinated me. So, I decided to become a priest and to work in this way.” “When I was a child, I already knew that God is everywhere; I liked to look at the sky and the sea. Looking at the sky and the sea, I felt God’s presence within. That was the way how I felt God; He is really everywhere. This awareness is still with me after I became a priest.” “If you pay attention to the vitality of the nature and the relationship among the animals, they reveal God’s love and that can be learnt from the animals. You can learn a lot in this way, both in mental, spiritual and knowledge aspects.” “‘If you want to heal quickly, you have to quit eating any meat.’ I quit eating any meat quickly and completely, as it was painful, and I finally understood why I had to do this. I read books and knew it was the best way to eat: quit eating all meat and be a vegan.”

Selections from "The Pathway of Life" by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 2, The Ills of Life, Part 1 of 2

Selections from "The Pathway of Life" by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 2, The Ills of Life, Part 1 of 2

“Everyone thinks of changing the world but no one thinks of changing himself.” This insightful saying by Leo Tolstoy is a good reminder for all of us to reflect inward. Yearning for more than success, fame, and wealth, Leo Tolstoy eventually established himself as a moral philosopher and spiritual leader during the last 30 years of his life. We would like to share an insightful excerpt from Volume Ⅱ of "The Pathway of Life," a collection of Tolstoy's philosophies on religion, life, death and more. The Ills of Life "All that which infringes upon the happiness of our bodily life we call ills. And yet the whole of our life is a gradual process of delivering our soul from that which constitutes the happiness of our body. Therefore, for him who comprehends life as it really is there are no ills." Ⅰ.That Which We Call Suffering is a Necessary. Ⅱ.Sufferings Stimulate Man's Spiritual Life.

Be a Torchbearer for God: Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 5

22:48

Be a Torchbearer for God: Questions and Answers, Part 3 of 5

So if we could not change the whole world, at least we change ourselves, we change our environment, change whomever we can influence…You have to walk the way of Jesus…You must be the torchbearer. You must change…(Master, is it important to be a vegetarian (vegan) to be enlightened?) It is important, it is important. Because, first of all, we have to practice love in order to beget love. In order to be all-pervasive, loving, like our Father, we have to love all beings. And that is the meaning behind the vegetarian (vegan) diet. It's not to be healthy, or not because Jesus said so or Buddha forbids – it's just we have to be love reincarnate. We have to be the walking God on this planet. We have to live like God would live. So, in order to be near God... God doesn't punish us. It's just like begets like: if we want to be near to something, we have to go there, the same direction. So, God created all beings and lets them die naturally. So should we. If we cannot create, at least we do not destroy. The commandment in the Bible is: "Thou shall not kill." It didn't say: "You shall not kill humans only." It says, "Thou shall not kill." Anything killed is killed.(What is Your opinion on spiritual healers? Should or can it be done for a living, like charging clients? If it is, is it allowed?) Yes, spiritual healing is very good, very good for the patients. Not too good for the healer sometimes, because she or he has to take on the bad karma (retribution) of these patients, and sometimes it's very overwhelming. Because spiritual healing is just one of the levels of God consciousness. If we arrive there, we can heal people. Yes, these people are very spiritually strong in order to heal people. Spiritual healers are very strong in their spirit, but in order to heal without healing, like Jesus did, we can go a little higher, much higher, then we heal. You don't have to lay hands on people. Just like when somebody touched Jesus' garment, and she was just healed, and she thanked Him. He said, "No, it's your faith that heals you." He never claimed because He knew it was the Father, and He said, "It's not me who does it, it's my Father." And that is the highest level of spiritual healing. We could be in many different levels, so it depends on where you are. The greatest spiritual healers don't heal. They just get healed. If it is God's will for that person to be healed through you, he just gets healed. The Master, or for example Jesus, He didn't do anything. That's why He never claimed credit. Yes, a true Master is like that – very humble.(How do you teach your children this way of life without being ridiculed in everyday life?) Yes, I told you, people will ridicule you even if you have a beautiful boyfriend or wife. So why are you scared? This life has been led in a wrong direction for a long time. That's why we are what we are now. So, if we could not change the whole world, at least we change ourselves, we change our environment, change whomever we can influence. If our children want to go this way, it's our duty to lead them, no matter whoever says. You have to walk the way of Jesus. People stoned Him, cursed Him, labeled Him, crucified Him – did He give up His way? No! So, we are Christian, we are whomever, we walk the way of God. All right? And we have to be an example to other beings. We cannot follow them because they are erring already, they are mistaken. You must be the torchbearer. You must change. And somebody else might change, also. They might not accept at first, but they come home and think about it: "Oh, this way seems to be better." And then later they say, “It is definitely better. OK, I follow." See? That's why we still follow Jesus now, 2,000 years later, because that's the only way to live our life. We follow, but we don't practice. We should practice more.(Is God within us? Is it the subconscious mind? If not, what is it exactly?) Yes, God is within us. It's the consciousness. God's also without us. God is everywhere. God is yourself.(I want to feel the power of God, but I don't know how. Can You help me? I want to be strong and faithful.) Yes. Only when you see God, then you can be strong and faithful. You cannot believe something you don't see, I am sorry. I'll show you how to see God, then you can believe Hirm, all right? God is (inner Heavenly) Light. God is the love you will feel during the contact with Hirm, during your meditation, during the time that you reserve for Hirm. And then later, more and more every day, every minute, you will feel Hiers love. Even without meditation, even when you're walking or when you're driving, you will feel that you are one with that love. That's a wonderful feeling, and that's how we can believe. You see? That's how we can believe.(How do You see that God is with You? And when do You feel that the Holy Spirit is with You?) I feel that all the time. How do I know? (How do You see?) What I see, I cannot tell you, but I can show you, so you can see the same. Because what I drink, you don't know. What I drink, you cannot taste. What I eat, you cannot feel full. But I can offer you the same meal, same juice, then you can understand. I wish God was a physical flower I can show you. But God's also in the flowers. God is in here. You can see this is the physical manifestation of God's beauty. This is the physical manifestation of God's being. Yours are the physical manifestations of God. So, if you want to feel the physical aspect of God, then touch your neighbor, hug him, kiss her. That is God in the physical realm. But if you want to see God in an abstract form, in Light, in splendor, in Heaven, then I have to show you in an abstract way, you understand? There are two ways: abstract and physical. Physical, you see already. Abstract, I'll show you. Later, when we have time together and sit quietly, I'll show you. I will tell you what to do and where to see God. It's very quick. How do I know? If I love somebody, do I know? If I sit here in Africa, do I know? To know God, it is like that, very, very clear. There's no mistake about it. I just can only show you by yourself, but I cannot show you in the physical because this is a different aspect of life.(Master, I ask You to show us what is the right way of praying.) Yes, I will do that. I will do that. That would take a couple of hours of explanation. But the enlightenment is fast, and you can experience every day the same, or higher and higher. I am here only for the one who is ready.(How different is spirituality from Your method? Is God with us or a part of us? How or what will our experience be during our initiation?) You will see God. You will see the aspect of God, which is (inner Heavenly) Light, which is different, like, melodies of the universe. The way Hes speaks to you is not in human language. Hes speaks in the melodious voice, like the (inner Heavenly) Sound of water. It's mentioned in the Bible that Hes speaks like thunder, like the Sound of many waters. This you will experience, and more, more, because the Bible doesn’t record everything. You’ll have too much experience, you can't write 1,000 books – never enough! So, one Bible is not enough. But at least there's some reference – like Moses sees God as a big flame, Saint John enters the Third Heaven and hears the trumpet, things like that, etc., etc. You will experience. You will know it. This is not something we can describe in language, really. You just know it when God's presence is near, or when you contact, when you remember again. Hes is always near. Just remember.(The world is in a crisis today – wars, pollution, disease, etc. Have we collectively created this crisis just so we can experience greater glory?) Yes. But we could have done better now, since we know better. It was a mistake. Now we have to repair it. We can't just continue making mistakes forever, and say, "OK, I am creating all this, so that I can experience Heaven.” Yes, there is a part of creating havoc, and there is a part of creating Heaven, so we have to balance it. We can't continue destroying our world forever by pollution, by cutting down forests, and by warring with each other. It's time to wake up. We’ve had enough suffering already.(Master, what will happen when You leave this world? Will there be others to continue Your lineage? Who will initiate the people? Who will be there to guide us?) God! You worry too far. At that time, you will know. God will decide. God will decide whether there is someone to continue, and Hes will let you know. If you are ready, everything will be known to you. If you are not ready, even if ten hundred masters come, it's no use. If you are ready, everything will be known to you. Don't worry, OK? Meanwhile, get initiation while I am still here. The Master dies but the spirit doesn't die, so you'll continue to be guided until you've finished your journey. Whoever is initiated by one Master will continue with that. It doesn't matter if the Master passes away. And the new one will come if God decides so.(In the Bible it is written: "Repent from your sins, then your prayers will be answered." My question is: How will God answer the prayer of a sinner?) Your question is a little bit less complete than it should be. This is the part when God talked to the people who killed a lot of animals for offering, so Hes said, "Who told you to kill all these she-sheep and he-bullocks to make offering to me? Your hands are full of blood! You should stop the killing of the innocents. Otherwise, when you pray, I will not answer; when you request, I will turn my head away." So that is in that section. So, actually, in the Bible, it mentions also that we should not even kill to make offering, let alone to eat. Yes? Because God created them for our pleasure – not to kill. Anyhow, if we repent, of course, that means we... Repent doesn't mean we should feel guilty about what we did. We did what we did – it's a part of the game. It was a part of our process of knowing God. So now we have created enough of the non-God actions, so now is the time to return to Godly action. So, once we make this decision to stop the un-Godly action and return to Godly action, at that time, God gives us the answer right away, like today. Doesn't matter how many people committed sins or whatever you did, you don't have to tell me. At the time you sit down for initiation, God will come to you all the same. So that means if you repent your sins, means you don't do it again, God will appear to you. Hes will today, if you sit down for a while later. In fact, some of you already experience (inner Heavenly) Light here. Is that not so? True? Can you raise your hand if you have? Thank you. My God! Aren't you spiritual! Thanks so much. It's the first time I'm in Africa. I told you, God is indiscriminating. Hes loves every one of us. As soon as you want Hirm, as soon as you sincerely yearn for Hirm, Hes is there – even if you don't meditate yet, even if I didn't even show you yet. See? God is all love, nothing else. Don't fear God – ever. Hes always loves us. As long as we want Hirm, Hes comes. Hes loves us, Hes blesses us, Hes graces us with all things in life, this and after.(Should we kill insects - flies, cockroaches, fleas, etc.?) It's better to make your house clean. And do some prevention outside the house, so that there is a smell, they don't come near. So, you don't have to actually kill them, all right? Because God doesn't punish, but your conscience feels bad. When you kill something, you feel, "My God, he's so little, so helpless, and I killed him just like that." Even though you don't feel it much, your conscience will awake at night sometimes and feel something biting you. And that's the ants or the cockroaches coming, reminding you, nibbling you, “You shouldn't have done that!”(Can You explain what are dreams or dreaming?) There are three kinds of dreams. One is some, like, clairvoyant kind of warnings or prediction of the coming event for you. That is when you are in very deep, deep sleep and more aware of your future or the past. Another kind of dream is that whatever you wish in the daytime or you think of much in the daytime before you sleep, it will appear in your dream; just a leftover of the impression of the daytime. And the last kind of dream is just nonsensical whatever, no meaning. Just collect all kinds of garbage in your brain, and then when you sleep, it's too full, it just like leaks out.(In the Bible, we read that Abraham's sons slaughtered animals for their father. Was it a sin?) In the old times, people believed to make offering to God. Even now they still do that. They even slaughter animals to offer to the God within their body, every day. Anyhow, people have different ways of life, different choices, to know God. They choose to do it quick; they choose to do it slow. For those of you who really get fed up with this life and really want to know God, nothing else, then go get initiation, full. You see? So, you decide now which choice you stay with or which choice you continue or next perfection you choose. Next choice, or stay with this choice.

The End Times – From the Book of Revelation, Holy Bible: Part 1 of 2

12:19

The End Times – From the Book of Revelation, Holy Bible: Part 1 of 2

Although it is not certain, Saint John the Apostle has been traditionally accepted as the author of the last Book in the Holy Bible – Revelation. This Book was written at the beginning of a challenging time for the Christian people. Though it is known as a record of inner visions, the Book of Revelation is also an encouragement to remain virtuous and faithful in God. Such true believers would surely enter the eternal Heavenly Kingdom of glory and blessedness of God. We will now read a passage from the Holy Bible’s Book of Revelation, in Chapters 19-21.“At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, ‘Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy Who bears testimony to Jesus.’”“I saw Heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of Heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. ‘He will rule them with an iron scepter.’ He treads the press of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”“Then I saw ‘a new Heaven and a new Earth,’ for the first Heaven and the first Earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and He will dwell with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.’ ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’”“He Who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’ Then He said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’”

From The Essene Humane Gospel of Christ: The Salvation of the World – The Birth of Yeshua, Part 1 of 2

15:20

From The Essene Humane Gospel of Christ: The Salvation of the World – The Birth of Yeshua, Part 1 of 2

Faithful viewers, the Essene Humane Gospel is a reminder of the Godly virtues that we should live by if we are to walk the path of the Truth. God’s Arms are always opened for the sincere Truth-seekers. Today we’ll read selections from the beginning of this Gospel, in which we learn about the preparation of the coming of the great Essene Prophet John the Baptist and of the Worshipped Messiah, Lord Jesus Christ. “…Gabriel spoke further unto her, ‘O Mary, therefore also is that holy, which shall be born of thee, even Christ, the child of God, and His name on earth shall be called Yeshua, for it is He that shall save the people from bondage to sin, even all those repenting and obeying His Holy Laws. Therefore, O Mary, YE SHALL EAT NO ANIMAL FLESH, NOR DRINK STRONG DRINK, for the Holy Child shall be consecrated unto the All-Eternal from its mother’s womb, and NEITHER ANIMAL FLESH NOR STRONG DRINK SHALL HE EAT OR DRINK IN ANY FORM, nor shall ever a razor touch His head.’”

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 2 of 3

15:30

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 2 of 3

Today, Mr. Asa Keisar readily elaborates on the Holy Torah’s requirement of justice for the animals. “About tza’ar ba’alei chayim (suffering of living creatures), it’s not only for the animals. First, it’s for us. Why? Because if we make suffering for the animal, when we eat, we take bad energy. And this energy makes us angry, makes us not good, not only in the spirit, but even in the body. When the Torah said, ‘Don’t steal from people,’ She doesn’t mean only for the people that you make something bad. You make something bad for you, for your soul, if you steal. All the scholars in Judaism say that there’s no difference in the tza’ar, in the suffering between the animals and human beings. Because the reason is not the intelligence, it’s common sense. And all the animals feel hot and cold, and all kinds of suffering. This is evidence. And Judaism is right 100% in the Book. You know something about kashrut (Jewish dietary laws), if you make suffering for the animals, its not kosher (permitted foods for kashrut).”

Свещени текстове на будизма: Сутрата на Лотоса на чудесната Дарма, глава 4, част 5 от 6

„Случаят е като този, при който разореният син можал да приближи баща си. Въпреки че знаел за притежанията на баща си, в сърцето си той не копнеел да ги притежава. Ние проповядваме съкровищницата на Дхарма на Буда, но не търсим сами да я постигнем. Търсим да изтрием което е било в нас, като вярваме, че това е достатъчно.”

From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library: On the Resurrection and the Father, Part 1 of 2

12:10

From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library: On the Resurrection and the Father, Part 1 of 2

The Nag Hammadi Library is a collection of early Christian and Gnostic manuscripts, also called codices, discovered in 1945 near the Upper Egyptian town called Nag Hammadi. The general dating of the books varies from the 2nd to the 4th century. The collection includes 13 ancient books containing over 50 spiritual texts. The discovery and translation of these scriptures helped scholars to re-evaluate early Christian history and the nature of Gnosticism, a Christian movement originating in the first and second century that emphasized “gnosis.” “Gnosis” means the direct knowing or acquaintance of the Divine through esoteric experience. We will now read an excerpt from the Nag Hammadi’s Treatise on the Resurrection, which is also referred to as “The Letter to Rheginos.”“Then, indeed, as the Apostle said, ‘We suffered with Him, and we arose with Him, and we went to Heaven with Him.’ Now if we are manifest in this world wearing Him, we are that One’s beams, and we are embraced by Him until our setting, that is to say, our death in this life. We are drawn to Heaven by Him, like beams by the sun, not being restrained by anything. This is the spiritual resurrection which swallows up the psychic in the same way as the fleshly.”“What, then, is the resurrection? It is always the disclosure of those who have risen. For if you remember reading in the Gospel that Elijah appeared and Moses with him, do not think the resurrection is an illusion. It is no illusion, but it is truth! Indeed, it is more fitting to say the world is an illusion, rather than the resurrection, which has come into being through our Lord the Savior, Jesus Christ.”“But the resurrection does not have this aforesaid character, for it is the truth which stands firm. It is the revelation of what is, and the transformation of things, and a transition into newness. For imperishability descends upon the perishable; the light flows down upon the darkness, swallowing it up; and the Pleroma (spiritual universe) fills up the deficiency. These are the symbols and the images of the resurrection. He it is who makes the good.”

Stoic Philosophy is Applied in Humility - Excerpts from Epictetus’ Enchiridion, Part 1 of 2

13:27

Stoic Philosophy is Applied in Humility - Excerpts from Epictetus’ Enchiridion, Part 1 of 2

Epictetus was a Greek Stoic philosopher, who lived in the 1st and 2nd centuries CE. Epictetus, who led a simple lifestyle with very few possessions, taught a practical philosophy to help people lead meaningful lives. The detailed steps and techniques in this regard, presented in his teachings, illustrate Stoicism as a way of life. Epictetus’ teachings have had an immense influence throughout the centuries, including on the great philosopher and Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, on early Christian moral thought, on current approaches in psychology and more, and continues to have an impact on many intellectuals, thinkers, and philosophers around the world. Today, we will read a selection from “The Enchiridion” by Epictetus, as we come to a better understanding of the many profound details and ethics in maintaining a spirit of moderation and humility, and in keeping a balanced relationship with the outside world and ourselves. “In every affair consider what precedes and what follows, and then undertake it. Otherwise, you will begin with spirit, indeed, careless of the consequences, and when these are developed, you will shamefully desist.…do not, like children, be now a philosopher, then a publican, then an orator, and then one of Caesar’s officers. These things are not consistent. You must be one man.” “Is your natural tie, then, to a good father? No, but to a father. Is a brother unjust? Well, preserve your own just relation toward him. Consider not what he does, but what you are to do to keep your own will in a state conformable to nature, for another cannot hurt you unless you please. You will then be hurt when you consent to be hurt. In this manner, therefore, if you accustom yourself to contemplate the relations of neighbor, citizen, commander, you can deduce from each the corresponding duties.” “Be assured that the essence of piety toward the gods lies in this — to form right opinions concerning them, as existing and as governing the universe justly and well. And fix yourself in this resolution, to obey them, and yield to them, and willingly follow them amidst all events, as being ruled by the most perfect wisdom. For thus you will never find fault with the gods, nor accuse them of neglecting you…”

The Wisdom of Solomon: Selection from the Books of the Apocrypha, Part 1 of 2

The Wisdom of Solomon: Selection from the Books of the Apocrypha, Part 1 of 2

The Apocrypha is a group of ancient books with uncertain authorship whose contents overlap parts of the Christian and Hebrew Bibles. The term “apocrypha” means “secret,” “hidden,” or “non-canonical.” Indeed, these books have been considered sacred, with a more advanced teaching than would normally be made available to the general public. Today, apocryphal books remain part of the Holy Bible in the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches, while other Christian traditions still value them for religious study. One of the Apocrypha books is The Wisdom of Solomon, in which wisdom is personified – such is the emphasis placed on that virtue. Today, we will explore an enthralling selection from the Apocrypha book, “The Wisdom of Solomon,” in regards to the true virtues of life, being the real means of approaching it, as wisdom is elaborated on as treasured goal for us to achieve. Wisdom is referred to as “she,” and is being described as an ultimate richness of life.“Wisdom is glorious, and never fadeth away: yea, she is easily seen of them that love her, and found of such as seek her. She preventeth them that desire her, in making herself first known unto them. Whoso seeketh her early shall have no great travail: for he shall find her sitting at his doors. To think therefore upon her, is perfection of wisdom: and whoso watcheth for her shall quickly be without care.” “For she goeth about seeking such as are worthy of her, sheweth herself favourably unto them in the ways, and meeteth them in every thought. For the very true beginning of her is the desire of discipline; and the care of discipline is love; and love is the keeping of her laws; and the giving heed unto her laws is the assurance of incorruption; and incorruption maketh us near unto God: therefore, the desire of wisdom bringeth to a kingdom.”“I preferred her before sceptres and thrones, and esteemed riches nothing in comparison of her. Neither I compared unto her any precious stone, because all gold in respect of her is as a little sand, and silver shall be counted as clay before her.” “God hath granted me to speak as I would, and to conceive as is meet for the things that are given me: because it is He that leadeth unto wisdom, and directeth the wise.”

The Reunion of Souls, Part 5 of 11

The Reunion of Souls, Part 5 of 11

I am here today with the honor of God’s permission and endowment to remind us, our fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, and little brothers and little sisters, that we should remember our whole being, and I’ll show you how. It is very simple to remember, more simple than breathing, more simple than eating.Hallo. Thank you so much! God bless you! Thank you. I am very, very touched and honored. Thank God for giving me this chance to visit your beautiful land and getting to know your beautiful races of people, and thank you for coming. I guess everybody’s very touched, so I also thank the New Zealand brothers and sisters who have been working very hard to make this beautiful evening a special memory. Thank you, and God bless your land, your people, and bless all the wishes that you have in your dreams. If you already know what you want to ask, you can write it already, and hand it out so that we can answer right away later, yeah? You don’t have to wait until we finish. So somebody can walk up and down and collect the questions.Alright! Because you know already before I begin. I think you know why you are here. Everyone wants to know what God is and everyone wants to know where we come from, and that’s the reason why we came here actually. That’s the reason why we came to this planet, the so-called planet, physical planet, even though at the same time, we are connected with Heaven, and spiritual planets, if we call that. But because we have forgotten the connection, so, many of us, or most of us, have just recognized this physical presence and this physical life we call human life.In fact, we are not just human, we are also spiritual beings – we are highly developed beings. At the same time we are living here, we are also living in different levels of consciousness – we are also doing so many great things – but it is difficult for most of us to realize that. Our ancestors, for example, the ancestors of the Maori people that you have just seen, they have sung so beautiful songs so spiritually developed, so highly elevated, so ‘souly’ songs, because our ancestors have known a different level of spirituality than some of us do today. But we still can develop this quality again... Not really develop – we can still remember it again, because what we once had, we will not lose it; it’s just sometimes we forget. So, in order for us to remember, we should... I will give you some practical experience after I explain a little, if you would like to, because if we experience it ourselves, it’s better than thousands of theoretical words.But I feel I should introduce it a little bit, even though God is not to be explained in language. But just like the Maori ancestors, they have known God, they have known spiritual levels that exceed our language, that go beyond our ordinary understanding, therefore, they could express themselves in poetry, in music, in songs, which are so beautiful, so out of the ordinary, and so touching to the soul when you hear it. It is because they expressed their own inner level of enlightenment. For lack of this inner enlightenment, or because of forgetting this inner enlightenment and our true Selves, we often cannot express ourselves in beautiful ways, in the way that we would like ourselves to express, and we sometimes could not behave or react in such a way that we would like ourselves to do. It is because we have forgotten the inner connection. We have forgotten that our lives, our so-called being, is greater, greater, longer and higher and more, more, more, more, more multiple facets, multiple qualities, multiple expressions than just this physical being that we know ourselves to be; we have forgotten that. For example, for example, the whole being here is me, from head to toe, yes, the whole being. I am not just the toe, I am not just the finger, I am not just the forehead – the whole being is me, but if I just remember my toes or my fingers, then I am not complete. Then it’s not me, it’s not complete. Similarly, if we just remember that we are a physical human being, then we are not complete.I am here today with the honor of God’s permission and endowment to remind us, our fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, and little brothers and little sisters, that we should remember our whole being, and I’ll show you how. It is very simple to remember, more simple than breathing, more simple than eating. Breathing, sometimes we have difficulty. If we have a blocked nose, we can’t breathe. Eating, if we have indigestion, we can’t eat, or if we don’t have enough money to buy food, we’re also in trouble. But spiritual wealth is always there. We always have it. It’s just we’re too busy looking at the outside, remembering our physical body, taking care of too many mundane duties. The world makes us very, very concentrated in the physical and material aspects, that we have hardly time to remember our 99% of our being, which is higher, greater, more powerful, more miraculous, more wondrous, more everything... more holy, more divine, more beautiful, more happy, more blessed, more blissful – everything that is Godly, that is us.All the teachers have come here, They told us like that: that we are the temple of God and God lives here, God lives there. So all we see here is God, or at least God’s manifestation, individually, differently. But we have forgotten that God quality, that God Nature of ourselves. We just remember this small part of our being which is the human side of ourselves, just like because I like this ring so much, I keep looking at the ring and I just remember this finger all the time and I forget everything else about myself. And this is not how we should do it. So that is why we don’t know God, because we have forgotten to look where we should look. That is all. That is why we often tell people “enlightenment is immediate” because you are already there. Suppose I am sitting here and I’m looking at the finger now. How long does it take me to know myself, if I don’t look here? How long does it take me? One second, right? Not even. As long as I don’t look here, I remember again, “Ah! Here I am! All of this is me!” Yes! It’s very simple; therefore, no one is your teacher.I’m not coming here to be your teacher, because you are already divine. I had also forgotten. At the age of three or four, we begin to forget. Sorry! My English is getting rotten! You see? Even English I’ve forgotten, because I speak so many languages everyday, Chinese, Vietnamese, sometimes German, sometimes French, you know, everything, and I forgot English also. Similarly, I even forgot Vietnamese! Yeah! I don’t speak as fluently as when I was in Vietnam, and I don’t speak Chinese as fluently as when I was still in Taiwan. Because we’re out of practice. Similarly, if we do not try to remember the great being that we truly are, then we will forget, and that’s why it is very easy to forget; and also, it is easy to remember. I am coming here to remind you of the good news that I have remembered, that I have remembered myself. So we can all remember anytime we want, and should we choose to stay in forgetfulness, this is also fine. It is also fine because you are divine, you are God. I’m sorry if I might shock you in any way, but that’s what you are.If you don’t believe me, look back in the Bible. And the Buddhist scriptures say “you are the Buddha,” “Buddha Nature is inside you.” The Bible says God lives within this temple, so who is in there? Who else, except God? If we are only the temple and God is the only one who lives in there, who are we then, except we are God? OK, we don’t remember, fine, but we still are God. So, whatever we choose to do, the God of all Gods that we are, respects that. The Father of all of these beings, which we are, respects our wish and our choice to live, to express our divine Selves in whichever way we want. That is why Jesus told us we do not judge people, because we do not know what is the path that being has chosen to walk. He does his things so that he may come to know God in a different way: he might choose to be a seemingly bad person; he might choose to be a seemingly very lowly person; he might choose to be, seemingly, a very so-called immoral person, but that is his way of knowing the divine. By choosing to be ungodly, he will one day know that this is not him; he has to go back and learn the whole being again.Because if we always stay in Heaven and we are God all the time, we will not recognize ourselves as God. So, we need to lower ourselves, for example, come down to this physical level, so that we can once again recognize the greatness of ourselves. That is our choice, and that’s why we came here. So the answer to our question, “why are we here?” is because we want to know God. So, when we feel that the time is up, it’s the time that we choose to remember ourselves again, that is the time when we come to seek out spiritual friends, spiritual groups or maybe spiritual teachers, as we call them, so that we can remember quickly. Because we have forgotten how to remember and where to look for, so some friends who had already remembered himself or herself may be able to help us, and then we recognize that we are nothing else but the Supreme Being, but God. We recognize the Supreme Being that lives, that is housed within this body. But actually, Hes is not housed within the body; Hes houses our body.But then again, because spiritual terminology is never a very exact science, so no matter how much a teacher tells us about God, how eloquently a spiritual friend might express about the Divine being within ourselves, we cannot just understand by listening. So, the spiritual friend or teacher or the guide or a friend has to show us practically, not just theoretically. For example, when Jesus came to our planet, He taught His disciples both ways – theoretical way and practical way – and that’s why later His immediate disciples could also do wonders, could also see Heaven, could also hear the voice of God – the Word of the Creator – could also see the Light of Heaven, could ascend to Heaven and even see the angels or see the Father. The Father spoke to them like the Father spoke to Moses; and the angels also spoke to them. Likewise, we could do that, because as great as Jesus’ disciples, we are also great. We and Jesus’ disciples are the same, equally, because Jesus said to us that we are all children of God. But because we have forgotten, so, sometimes one friend, two friends have to come to remind us; but only when we are ready, because if we are not ready, no one can do much for us.

The Reunion of Souls, Part 2 of 11

18:36

The Reunion of Souls, Part 2 of 11

“I have started the Quan Yin Method almost a year ago, that is after I’ve been practicing other types of meditation for over 25 years. Having had a chance to practice other meditations, the Quan Yin Method brought for me a level of enlightenment which I have never had before. It has fulfilled my heart so deeply that I’m very, very grateful to Master for Her step She took in the Himalayas which was not easy, and each one of us most probably will make steps which are not easy.” “My life, my family life, has changed dramatically through the Quan Yin Method. I became a much more easy-going father, as my children say, having been before quite strict. And I can say that my relationship with my wife has improved very deeply.”03:23)“When you become a full initiate, you realize that Master has taken a lot of what we call karmic lifetimes away from you. I’m not going to explain it because I am still new, I’m only a baby.” “There’s so much beauty in your eyes, I see them welling up with tears, I see you lift up your gaze to the sky, With joy, with joy, pure joy. I feel the angels calling me, Ah... Winging out from your eyes, With the rising sun. There’s so much beauty in your smile, I feel you warm upon my cheek, I feel you bringing down your shields, With trust, with trust, pure trust.” “Is it really you? Is it dé jà vue? I know I’ve known you before the dawn of time, You embody love. In its truest form, You’re beaming with a light that shines the way. We are angels in expression, In the total universal connection, Through one another’s eyes, We can recognize the truth. Remember me, Come close and see, We are one together, we are free, Let me feel your pain, We will heal again, Where there is a will there is a way.” “I’m going to leap for joy, I’m going to open my heart, I’m going to twirl and whirl and spin in a spirit dance. I’m going to lend a hand, I’m going to cherish the land, I’m going to give and give and give, All I can provide.” “We’re going to save the trees, We’re going to honor the seas, We’re going to cry, dive and fly on the wings of love. We’re going to heal the world, We’re going to walk in peace, We’re going to share and share and share and bring release, For we are angels in expression.”

Signs of Agni Yoga: Selection from Infinity I by Spiritual Messengers Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 1 of 2

13:59

Signs of Agni Yoga: Selection from Infinity I by Spiritual Messengers Nicholas and Helena Roerich (vegetarians), Part 1 of 2

The esteemed mystical and philosophical writers Nicholas Roerich and his wife Helena Roerich are two of the most influential spiritual thought leaders from Russia. They are recognized for founding a doctrine called Agni Yoga, also known as Living Ethics. Believed to be a synthesis of all yogas (spiritual disciplines), Agni Yoga focuses on the daily practice of Love, Beauty, and noble Action. Today we’ll read an excerpt from the book “Infinity I” which is part of the Agni Yoga volumes. “Is it worthwhile to speak of Infinity if it is unattainable? But it does exist; and everything great, even if invisible, compels us to think about the ways to it. Thus, even now let us ponder about the ways into Infinity; for it exists, and it is terrifying if it is not cognized. Humanity is distressed because of lost currents, but its explanations of the shiftings on Earth and of the manifestations of cosmic perturbations are geological. Despite these explanations, the factual evidence, the manifestations of fiery, subterranean, and supermundane currents, reveal to the world the concept of Infinity. When we renounce ignorance, we shall understand the entire beauty of Infinity!”

The Master’s Radiation – From the Unveiled Mysteries by the Ascended Master Saint Germain (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

The Master’s Radiation – From the Unveiled Mysteries by the Ascended Master Saint Germain (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Guy Warren Ballard was a United States mining engineer and co-founder, together with his wife Edna Anne Wheeler Ballard, of the “I AM” spiritual movement, inspired by his life-changing meeting with the Ascended Master Saint Germain. Following this enlightening encounter, Mr. Ballard devoted his life to spreading the Master’s wisdom, according to his capacity. From Master Saint Germain’s dictation and teachings, Mr. Ballard wrote a series of books under the pseudonym Godfré Ray King. Today, the volumes documenting the precious mysteries revealed by the Ascended Master to Godfré Ray King are still a fascinating spiritual gem for many across the globe. The three most famous volumes are titled “Unveiled Mysteries,” “The Magic Presence,” and “The ‘I AM’ Discourses.” Let us now open the pages of this fascinating documentation in Guy Warren Ballard’s, or Godfré Ray King’s book “Unveiled Mysteries.” “My brain whirled, so great was my fear, but one idea came through clearly and held my attention steady. I realized that I had the Mighty ‘Presence of God’ right within me and that this ‘Presence’ was all Love. This beautiful animal was a part of God's Life also, and I made myself look at it directly in the eyes. Then came the thought that one part of God could not harm another part and I was conscious of this fact only.” “A feeling of Love swept over me, and went out – like a Ray of Light – directly to the panther, and with it went my fear. The stealthy tread ceased and I moved slowly toward it, feeling that God's Love filled us both. The vicious glare in the eyes softened – the animal straightened up and came slowly to me, rubbing his shoulder against my leg.” “‘I saw the great strength within you or I would not have permitted so great a test. You have conquered fear. My congratulations! Had you not conquered the outer self, I would not have allowed the panther to harm you, but our association would have ceased for a time.’” “The reason an Ascended Master temporarily raises the consciousness of the student is to show him how he may do this same thing for himself by his own effort – consciously, and at will.”

Stoicism as a Way of Life - Selection from Epictetus’ Enchiridion, Part 1 of 2

14:10

Stoicism as a Way of Life - Selection from Epictetus’ Enchiridion, Part 1 of 2

Epictetus was a Greek Stoic philosopher, who lived in the 1st and 2nd centuries CE. Epictetus, who led a simple lifestyle with very few possessions, taught a practical philosophy to help people lead meaningful lives. He emphasized integrity, personal freedom and self-mastery, through the use of reason and virtue, which is required to live in accordance with nature. We’ll now read a segment of the collected teachings from “The Enchiridion” by Epictetus. According to Epictetus’ beliefs, all external events are beyond our control, and we should accept them with ease, calmness, and humility. Whereas, each individual is responsible for their own actions, which they should govern with determination and self-discipline. “There are things which are within our power, and there are things which are beyond our power. Within our power are opinion, aim, desire, aversion, and, in one word, whatever affairs are our own. Beyond our power are body, property, reputation, office, and, in one word, whatever are not properly our own affairs. Now the things within our power are by nature free, unrestricted, unhindered; but those beyond our power are weak, dependent, restricted, alien. Remember, then, that if you attribute freedom to things by nature dependent and take what belongs to others for your own, you will be hindered, you will lament, you will be disturbed, you will find fault both with gods and men.” “Men are disturbed not by things, but by the views which they take of things. Thus death is nothing terrible, else it would have appeared so to Socrates. But the terror consists in our notion of death, that it is terrible. When, therefore, we are hindered or disturbed, or grieved, let us never impute it to others, but to ourselves — that is, to our own views. It is the action of an uninstructed person to reproach others for his own misfortunes; of one entering upon instruction, to reproach himself; and one perfectly instructed, to reproach neither others nor himself.” “Demand not that events should happen as you wish; but wish them to happen as they do happen, and you will go on well.”

Selection from Edgar Cayce’s Christ Consciousness: The Body is the Temple, Part 1 of 2

13:17

Selection from Edgar Cayce’s Christ Consciousness: The Body is the Temple, Part 1 of 2

Internationally known clairvoyant Edgar Cayce was called “the sleeping prophet” due to the seemingly “deep sleep” he entered before he started a prophecy. He performed some 22,000 readings over four decades between 1901-1944. Of these readings, more than 14,000 were recorded, ranging on topics such as reincarnation, oneness, the Akashic records (a library of all human events), ancient mysteries, universal laws, and the importance of meditation and prayer. Today, we’ll explore some of Edgar Cayce’s insightful readings about how for those seeking to know God, our body and actions are a channel through which the Christ Consciousness awaits to be awakened. “Thy body is indeed the temple of the living God. Where in thy body, then, is the door through which – when ye open it – the Christ may come in, the Christ-Conscience? ‘Ye abiding in me and I in the Father, ye may know that consciousness that I and the Father abide in thee.’ That is the manner in which the individual, the soul, may at THIS time become more and more aware of the Christ Consciousness, that manifested by and through the Lord Jesus, that is the promise and the sureness as shown in Him from the Father unto thee.”

Christ’s Unique Occasion – From “The Reappearance of the Christ” by Alice Bailey, Part 2 of 2

14:51

Christ’s Unique Occasion – From “The Reappearance of the Christ” by Alice Bailey, Part 2 of 2

Today, we will continue with a selection from Alice Bailey’s Chapter Two – “Christ’s Unique Occasion,” from her book entitled, “The Reappearance of the Christ.” “For the time being, neither the energy of the creative mind nor the energy of love were left to Him. He was bereft of all that had made life bearable and full of meaning. A new type of energy became available — the energy of life itself, imbued with purpose and actuated by intention. But it was new and unknown and hitherto unrealized. For the first time, the relation of the will, which had hitherto expressed itself in His life through love and the creative work of inaugurating the new dispensation became clear to Him. At this point, He passed through the Gethsemane (historic garden in Jerusalem) of renunciation. The greater, the larger and the more inclusive was revealed to Him and all that hitherto seemed so vital and important was lost to sight in the greater vision. It is this living realization of Being and of identification with the divine intention of God Himself, the Father, the Lord of the World upon levels of awareness, of which we know nothing (as yet), which constituted the unfolding awareness of the Christ upon the Way of the Higher Evolution. This Way He treads today and He began to tread it in Palestine two thousand years ago. He knew, in a sense hitherto unknown to Him, what God intended and what human destiny meant, and the part that He had to play in the working out of that destiny. We have paid little attention down the centuries of human thinking to Christ’s reaction to His own destiny, as it affected the human. We have paid small attention to the aspect of His reaction to knowledge, as it unfolded itself to Him. We have been selfish and grasping in our reaction to His work and sacrifice.” “The spiritual Hierarchy of our planet (the invisible Church of Christ) is not a center of peace, but a very vortex of loving activity, the meeting place of energies coming from the center of the divine will, and from humanity, the center of divine intelligence. Christ had oriented Himself to that divine center which has, in the ancient Scriptures, been called the ‘place of serene determination and of poised, quiescent will.’ This statement marked a point of crisis and of determination in the life of Christ, and proved His progress towards divine fulfilment.”

From the Books of the Apocrypha: The Wisdom of Solomon, Part 2 of 2

9:37

From the Books of the Apocrypha: The Wisdom of Solomon, Part 2 of 2

We now continue exploring the teachings from The Wisdom of Solomon about our life here and after. We’ll learn from the following excerpts how essential it is to please God by following His way of wisdom, regardless of the temptations around us. “But though the righteous be prevented with death, yet shall he be in rest. For honorable age is not that which standeth in length of time, nor that is measured by the number of years. But wisdom is the gray hair unto men, and an unspotted life is old age. He pleased God, and was beloved of Him: This the people saw, and understood it not, neither did they keep this in their minds, that His grace and mercy is with His saints, and that He hath respect unto His chosen. For the hope of the ungodly is like dust that is blown away with the wind; like a thin froth that is driven away with the storm; like the smoke which is dispersed here and there with a tempest, and passeth away as the remembrance of a guest that tarrieth but a day. But the righteous live forevermore; their reward also is with the Lord, and the care of them is with the most High. Therefore shall they receive a glorious Kingdom, and a beautiful crown from the Lord’s hand: for with His right hand shall He cover them, and with His arm shall He protect them.”

The Reappearance of the Christ by Alice Bailey: Selection from “Christ’s Unique Occasion,” Part 1 of 2

11:39

The Reappearance of the Christ by Alice Bailey: Selection from “Christ’s Unique Occasion,” Part 1 of 2

Alice Bailey was an extraordinary British American esoteric author of the 20th century. She was one of the first to use the term New Age, referring to a better future for the world that fulfills the Divine plan of love and light. Born in 1880, Alice Bailey in her youth was a devoted Christian who later developed an extensive knowledge and practice of Theosophy. In 1922, Alice Bailey and her husband Foster Bailey founded the Lucis Trust and the Arcane School to offer the teachings and meditation guidance to the public. The nonprofit Lucis Trust is still active today and continues to publish Alice Bailey’s works, including as free e-books, for people to study in this special period of our planet. We will now read an excerpt from Alice Bailey’s prophetic book “The Reappearance of the Christ,” about the unique factors that will mark the way the Christ will carry out His work during His next re-emergence on Earth. “First of all, He will come to a world which is essentially one world. His reappearance and His consequent work cannot be confined to one small locality or domain unheard of by the great majority, as was the case when He was here before. The radio, the press and the dissemination of news will make His coming different to that of any previous Messenger; the swift modes of transportation will make Him available to countless millions, and by boat, rail and plane they can reach Him: THROUGH TELEVISION, HIS FACE CAN BE MADE FAMILIAR TO ALL, and verily ‘every eye shall see Him.’” “It is a fallacy to believe, as some do, that the main trend of Christ’s work will be through the medium of the churches or the world religions. He necessarily will work through them when conditions permit and there is a living nucleus of true spirituality within them, or when their invocative appeal is potent enough to reach Him. He will use all possible channels whereby the consciousness of man may be enlarged and right orientation be brought about. It is, however, truer to say that it is as World Teacher that He will consistently work, and that the churches are but one of the teaching avenues He will employ. All that enlightens the minds of men, all that tends to bring about right human relations, all modes of acquiring real knowledge, all methods of transmuting knowledge into wisdom and understanding, all that expands the consciousness of humanity and of all subhuman states of awareness and sensitivity, all that dispels glamour and illusion and that disrupts crystallization and disturbs static conditions will come under the realistic activities of the Hierarchy which He supervises. He will be limited by the quality and the caliber of the invocative appeal of humanity and that, in its turn, is conditioned by the attained point in evolution.”

13:45

Selection from Edgar Cayce’s Christ Consciousness: The Body is the Temple, Part 2 of 2

We now continue with more enlightening excerpts, from Edgar Cayce's readings, including his answers to individuals' questions regarding wellness, and how our attitude and love towards ourselves and others affects our awareness of the Christ Consciousness as well as our mental and physical vibrancy. “When the Spirit of the Father, when the activities that the Christ - the Lord - gave to the sons of men - are made manifest in thine own life day by day, then ye become aware of His presence abiding in thee. Then, be not idle in that ye know; rather let it be an ACTIVE, POSITIVE influence in the experience of all. Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil, cleave to that which is good. In THIS way may YE know, may YE be aware of His presence within thee. Let's change it - in Him. Then there is little need for attempting to heal an ill body unless the mind, the purpose, the ideal of the entity is set in Him who is peace, life, hope and understanding. For He is indeed the Way and the Truth and the Light.”
