"I am a bubble of Super-most consciousness. That is what my realization is. This is what I have gained. Now what I feel is that there is One, Infinite, Super-most Element. From IT, when it moves, Sound and Light come out and from that Light and Sound this creation takes place. Cosmic rays and many other types of rays come out of this Light and Sound and all this gross matter is made. So it is the Will of that Supreme Power. Everything is oozing out of IT and is merging back in IT." (Baba Faqir Chand)   Below is the Message of J.L. Chaudhari of the Radhasoami Faith (in the spiritual...

"As there are landmarks on earth, so there are landmarks in Time. The past and future are like sealed books to us: the one is in the limbo of oblivion, while the other is in the womb of uncertainty. It is only the LIVING PRESENT that is ours, and we must make the best use of it, ere it slips away through the fingers and is lost forever. Human birth is a great privilege and offers us a golden opportunity. It is for us to make or mar the same, for it is given to each individual to forge his or her own destiny as best he may.” (Kirpal Singh, Standing at the Crossroads of Time)   Kirpal...

Long ago, Giordano Bruno wrote of an infinity of worlds and life in the cosmos: "He is glorified not in one, but in countless suns; not in a single earth, a single world, but in a thousand thousand, I say in an infinity of worlds." As was often the case with the western mystics, he was burned at the stake for sharing his revelations, his "heresy". Such has been the fate of numerous gnostic souls and other mystics. Around that very same time but further to the East in India, Guru Nanak also sang that there are countless earths, spheres, moons, suns oceans, living creatures and beings, millions...

"Sant Mat" can be defined as: "The Path of the Masters" or "Way of the Saints and Mystics". Sant Mat is a living school of spirituality or mystic path. It has some shared ideas in common and parallel spiritual practices that once-upon-a-time were part of Gnosticism, Pythagoreanism, Platonism, Kabbalah, Christian mysticism, and Sufism. But unlike some cousin schools of spirituality that are associated with earlier centuries, medieval times, and antiquity, Sant Mat is a living spiritual path with us now in the Twenty-First Century, is a "living gnosis now", complete with living mystics and and...

The realms described by the Masters are within one’s self. That is to say, it is a journey of several stages that one passes through on the way to the Non-dual Ultimate Reality or Ocean of Oneness at the Top, beyond all illusion. The journey begins at the Third Eye Center, goes up through the Crown Chakra and through many levels beyond. During meditation (surat shabd yoga, out-of-body or soul travel), one passes through the regions. Certain lights, visions or sounds one encounters up this NDE-like “tunnel” inside are used as markers along the way. Certain key visions, lights and sounds,...

"Hazur [Baba Sawan Singh] one day told Seth Vasdev, whose car is always at Hazur's disposal, that he should read Kabir Sahib's Anurag Sagar (The Ocean of Intense Love). Hazur said that without studying it, one cannot fully understand the difference between Kal (the negative power) and Dayal Mat (the Path of the true and Merciful God), nor can one fully grasp the teachings of Sant Mat."

Today, wisdom from the Masters or Mystics of the East and West on the power of silence to guide our every step, so each step brings us closer to our most noble goals, leading us into a life of love, peacefulness, an enlightened existence. The art of listening in the silence of meditation provides us with countless opportunities to see clearly without the usual day-to-day distractions, perceiving the events of our life from a higher vantage point. Silence allows angels to whisper advice into our ears. It also makes it possible for the authentic self to rise to the surface, introducing a new divine power or grace into this dimension of reality. It imparts insight, and ultimately, wisdom borne out of the depths or womb of contemplative silence gives birth to the realization of the soul itself. Most of the time we human beings are distracted surface-dwellers. We live from the levels of conscious mind and ego, with our attention hopelessly held captive by the turbulence and agitation of our day-to-day circumstances. If we can develop a daily meditation practice, learn to take a break and detach ourselves, allowing some space for the silence to speak to us, we will gain access to a higher wisdom. If we can pause and listen, taking time each day to meditate, this will provide opportunities for angels, the Inner Master-Power or the Great Invisible Spirit to communicate, to whisper into our inner ear.
