Spiritual Awakening Radio

We explore the world of early Christian writings as well as scholarly texts. Some who know Greek and are affiliated with Eastern Orthodox Christianity believe that the mention of "locusts" in the New Testament actually refers to locust beans, also known as carob beans. Some describe "Saint John's bread" or "manna bread" as being made of locust bean flour turned into a kind of Middle-eastern flat bread. John the Baptist's Beans, Not Bugs Today on Spiritual Awakening Radio With James Bean!

In this labyrinth of existence we can become quite habituated into remaining as surface-dwellers living inundated by all the outward distractions that life on earth provides. We may ask of ourselves, “Am I availing myself of the spiritual direction and wisdom that comes from within?”

There are Living Mystics with us now in the world today. Respect goes to past masters, yes... but the work's not done. The work that remains is the spiritual mission of the living masters of the present time keeping the torch, the Light of spirituality, lit for another generation. For Sant Mat, the age of truth and revelation has never ceased. What was true in the past remains true now. What enlightenment was available to others who once lived in the past is also available to us here in the living present.

Spiritual Awakening Radio

In Sant Mat spirituality, meditation is successfully practiced when we keep the proper meditation posture, leave behind all our burdens, thoughts, worries, and worldly distractions behind, and focus all of our undivided attention on going within by way of the third eye so that we may reach that Sacred Secret Place of the Most High where Divine Grace is flowing, a great way of describing the benefit of meditation as being a kind of inner baptism or letting the waters of Divine Grace flow over the soul.

"Spiritual seeking has the not-so-modest goal of revealing nothing less than the Divine, the Truth or Ultimate Reality. For far less modest goals than this we would not dare attempt their achievement without a qualified teacher. Our universities and the degrees they confer bear witness to this fact. For example, we would never attempt to acquire the skills of a professional airline pilot with mere reading, nor would we dare take instructions from someone who himself had never flown. Common sense requires that we approach subjects such as aviation or any number of other technical subjects with the help of skillful teachers and tried and true curricula. Why then would we assume that the highest and arguably the most difficult of all goals could be achieved without a teacher or guide?" (Don Howard, Evaluating Spiritual Teachers -- In Search of a Worthy, Genuine, Competent, Qualified Spiritual Teacher)
