"Pure is the Word. Pure is the Master's teaching. Pure is the Lord's Light which pervades all, meditating on which, one washes one's dirt off."

"I would love to be a deer, abiding in the woods living on roots, if, by the Guru’s Grace, do I thus meet my Lord, unto whom I am a Sacrifice.

"I am the pedlar of my Lord, and deal only in the merchandise of His Name. [Pause]

"I would be a Koel-bird, sheltered in a mango grove, and dwell, in peace, on the Word, if thus do I meet my Lord of indescribable beauty, the natural way.

"I would be a fish, abiding in water, if thus do I remember the Lord who supports all. Hugging Him, in a close embrace, I see Him here, there and everywhere.

"I would be a serpent living under the ground, if thus would the Music of the Word charm me, making me fear-free.

"Nanak: he alone forever is blest whose soul merges into the All-Soul."

-- Verses from the Sikh Scriptures -- Adi Granth -- Guru Granth, Volume One:

A Young Kirpal Singh Meditating at an Early Age

"Kirpal began meditating at the age of four. When other boys and girls of his age were busy playing, he would be busy meditating. He never wasted his time with sports. He would sit quiet with eyes closed. He would see spiritual sights within and would traverse on spiritual planes. He would remain lost in ecstasy. But whenever this absorption in meditation would break after intervals of 2 to 3 months, he would feel very restless. His spiritual flights would, however, start again shortly afterwards.

Abstinence from Meat

"His family was non-vegetarian But he was averse to taking meat even as a child. While his brothers and sisters would ask for more, he would have none at all. He was content with bread and vegetables. His father asked, 'Pal, why don’t you take meat? It will do you good.' He sweetly replied, 'It is very well, father, but is not meat dead flesh, and would you have me make a burial ground of my body?' The father could only smile and the child had his own way."

"In this human body you can go back to your home and in no other. You are fortunate you have the human body. What you can do here in a short time, cannot be done in the other world, higher planes, in ten times as long." (Sant Kirpal Singh)

By Day the Sun Moves, the Moon Moves By Night, Billions of Stars Pass By; He is the One Perpetual Abode, 0 Nanak

"Serve the One, the very Divine Teacher of all. Know that His real nature is the only One: the One Light in all. He is, and ever shall be. He has not gone, nor will He disappear. Eternal is the Creator. Nanak, know that the Real is eternal -- everything else is false. The whole world is like a dream-drama; God causes the whole play of the drama to be enacted.

"What pleases Him, the Supreme Being -- THAT indeed takes place. This world is an illusion; this world is all a dream. For Nanak, only the Lord is true. The whole world must pass away in time. The Compassionate is the only permanent Abode. By day the sun moves, the moon moves by night, billions of stars pass by; He is the one perpetual Abode, 0 Nanak."

(Verses from the Adi Granth/Sikh Scriptures, "The Gospel of the Guru Granth", Duncan Greenlees, Theosophical Publishing House)

A Conversation With a Nervous Astral Soul About to Reincarnate and Return to Earth

Click the Play Button to Listen Here:

A nervous soul in an astral realm awaiting his reincarnation and return to the Earth expresses that he has much anxiety about the life-to-come in such a fragile human body in this turbulent world, but gets some good advice about how to live a life of love… making life meaningful. Hopefully he will be able to remember this advice – that it won’t be deleted by the psychic mists of forgetfulness that soon will erase his memory of all that has taken place before, once he begins his new life on Earth.

Enjoy my short reading from the book, The Pilgrimage of James, An Odyssey of Inner Space, by George Arnsby Jones. (Length: 3:51)

Contemplate the Inner Light Often and Be Blessed: “This Inner Light is so wonderful that by beholding it, the darkness of delusion or attachment is destroyed; fortune begins to smile on him (the beholder [the observer]).” -- Swami Achyutanand Baba
