The world presents us with infinite distractions to always keep us off-center, diverting our attention from our spiritual goals, seemingly never able to reach an oasis of peace and tranquility. And within as well, there are many obstacles intended to prevent the soul from making much spiritual progress during this life. This according to the Gnostics and the Masters is the great cosmic conspiracy of the ages to keep souls down, circling round and round on the wheel of transmigration with no apparent means of escape, no end in sight. And changing belief-systems, rituals and theologies, doctrines, or what icons are hanging on the wall won't help either, as these are all confined to the world of mortal minds and matter, just amounting to "rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Titanic", as they say. According to the Masters, the way of escape, liberation and redemption for the soul is not visiting yet more physical temples made of wood and stone, or swapping old religious doctrines for new ones, which still are confined to the same lower planes of creation, but rather to "rise above body-consciousness", to learn the almost lost mystic art of "death before dying", discovering how to transcend body and mind during contemplative meditation practice and connect with that missing element of our existence: what it's like to be a soul or spiritual being! By following the meditation guidance of the Masters we will reach the seat of the soul, the third eye center hidden within us, access the Inner Light and Sound, enter the spiritual realms here and now, and begin our journey back to God.
Friend? hope for the Guest while you are alive.
Jump into experience while you are alive!
Think... and think... while you are alive.
What you call "salvation" belongs to the time
If you don't break your ropes while you're alive,
do you think ghosts will do it after?
The idea that the soul will join with the ecstatic
just because the body is rotten --
that is all fantasy.
What is found now is found then.
If you find nothing now,
you will simply end up with an apartment in the
City of Death.
If you make love with the Divine now, in the next
life you will have the face of satisfied desire.
So plunge into the truth, find out who the Teacher is,
Believe in the Great Sound!
Kabir says this: When the Guest is being searched for,
it is the intensity of the longing for the Guest
that does all the work.
Look at me, and you will see a slave of that intensity.
-- Says Kabir, one of the founding Satgurus of Sant Mat
