"Contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints."

Spiritual Awakening Radio

During this short podcast you'll catch a glimpse of a rare form of Christianity, somewhat estranged from the Western world perhaps, but very much part of Christianity further to the East since the earliest of days: a rich contemplative tradition of prayer, meditation, and living a spiritual way of life "practicing the presence of God", as Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection once described it. Meditation in the Hebrew Bible: "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10). This passage from the Acts of Peter provides a great description of meditation practice: "Give ear; withdraw your souls...

Seek To See God Now, Liberation During This Life -- Mystic-Poem of Sant Tulsi Sahib:

"In this life, the concept of salvation all describe;
To meet the Lord by dying while living, none discloses.

They all speak of the goal of salvation after death;
How to attain it while living, no one says.

Were they to reveal the method of achieving release while living,
Then alone would Tulsi be convinced of their words!

Who speaks, after seeing with their own eyes,
and teach the method of salvation during life,

They are of the stage and stature of Saints,
for they reveal the quintessence of the soul."

Jesus said, "Look for the Living One while you're still alive. If you die and then try to look for Him, you won't be able to." (Gospel of Thomas, Saying 59)

God is the Ocean of Love.
