Its been ages since I've added to any of my blogger pages, and this is the last one still 'operable', as far as me being able to get into the dashboard and post :) - My religious/spiritual studies have gone into different directions the past few years,....but I'm adding this to keep this blog current. With that, I'm signing out for a period, and hope to come back with more details of the on-going journey.

Been studying Hinduism and currently reading the Bhagavad Gita on the various practices of 'yoga', which center ultimately on the science of Self-realization. On our Hinduism thread, we are using the Bhagavad Gita As it is, for our text-commentaries.
Also reading transmissions from the Arcturians, who are assisting in our spiritual evolution and ascension to the higher dimensions. These teachings synthesize with the ascended master schools and other extra-terrestrial sources guiding man to his higher calling, towards a New Golden Age.
Let us open heart & soul to the all-pervading Brahman, attune to the Paramatman within, and give worship to the Bhagavan, the divine Personality of the Godhead...who is the archetypal Person of our devotion, representing the transcendental form of Deity. We recognize the 3 aspects of 'God', the Brahman(all-pervading Spirit-energy), the Paramatman(the indwelling Deity-presence)...and the Bhagavan (divine Personality of God, the transcendental form the Supreme Person who dwells in his heavenly Abode). All aspects of the 'Lord' are acknowledged and revered in the Vaishnava tradition of Hindu devotion, in the bhakti tradition. Using this particular translation of the Gita,...we enter our meditations in the religious/devotional sense....allowing also for more open philosophic and esoteric interpretations as well. All glory to the divine Personality, and His all-pervading Presence.....the Brahman and atma(soul) being of the One substance, with all its many expressions thru-out space and time. All glory to the Eternal One, without a second. One Ocean, many rivers. One Light, many rays. One substance, many forms. Glory to the One Love.

'Soul' to me is the inner essence of a living conscious entity that has an individuality of being. 'Soul' is eternal in the sense that it is made of God-mind and derived of God's essence...a living complex of mind and spirit with individuality and consciousness. Because what is created out of God's own Spirit, that substance has the same nature and potency as God Himself, infused with life/light/consciousness. As long as an living entity has consciousness and 'identity' it is a functioning soul-unit, a center of God-activity. The 'I AM' individualized.
We are Soul embodied as Man, an individualized expression of God. Spirit is the energy of soul, so that the soul of Man by nature has the potency of immortality, latent within its own inherent nature. Whether one believes that the soul wil be resurrected at a later time or continues on immediately after the physical body dies... may be a 'technical issue' as both beliefs 'end' in living souls endowed with life or immortality at some juncture, whether it be NOW (inherently waiting to be further developed) or in some miraculous future event. All souls who accept, receive and co-operate with the Life-giving Spirit are being regenerated thru the One Divine Life, via the 'Christ' (divine principle/pattern/idea of God in Man) to arise in his divine Sonship and eternal inheritance as an immortal soul.

The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us how our end will be." Jesus said, "Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end? For where the beginning is, there will the end be. Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning; he will know the end and will not experience death."
-Gospel of Thomas
In the beginning, lies the secret of Life, the spring of eternity, the holy Will. The beginning-place is our root and origin. All traces back to the beginning, and will have its end according to the Original Spirit. Surrending one's being to the Root, anchoring in the primal Unity, being that original will, true creation and eternal trust,...is the Way of Life - wherein the illusion of death is wholly transcended.

All depends on the premise and definition of 'God' in our consideration, and what 'God' is or means to us - who and what is defining the term for us, within any given context. The 'God' of the judeo-christian tradition while presumed to be the same 'God', is still variously described. - in general, some might question such a 'god' if its character is distorted or hard to understand, or dogma about its existence becomes too illogical or unbearable. The postive light of such a god, as being Love and Light, the substance and giver of all goodness and beauty, certainly has its pleasures - this is a kind of 'god' we can grow to love, because we discover that its essence is Love itself. - therefore, in this sphere of knowledge,...life bears intrinsic value of ever potentializing worth. - it is worth living, because one finds value in being.
Fundamentally I hold God as Life, Existence, Being, Truth, Reality itself,...the source, substrate and substance of All that Is. Therefore, 'God' is Reality. Existence is inviolable. One must recognize in the stillness of Silence, in that spiritual space of BEING....this reality of existence, in its purity,... as innate, supreme, all-pervading, latent with all potential.
This truth of existence is Absolute. - what one experiences thru the limited perception of the ego is 'relative' and subject to all the changing experiences of space/time creation (in these finite dimensions). But Spirit is ever free.
Since my basal view and knowledge of 'God' as Original Reality is fundamentally THIS (this reality here, now and forever...in this moment and every moment)...any 'doubts' of its existence is utter vanity and futility. Doubt is essentially impossible, for the only Possible Truth is God, the Father/Mother of all possibility. Nothing can do anything against Truth. - however many doubts are thrown up against it, they are powerless to efface what IS. Doubts can only arise against thoughts, beliefs or concepts about God. When one surrenders all thoughts, beliefs and concepts,....there is Only God.
One cannot escape the truth of Existence or oneSelf (since 'God' and 'Self' are One). Life, Being, Light(Consciousness), Living Awareness...is its own proof, and IS All there IS. We use words to describe Truth or 'God', for they are tools/pointers for communication. They point to that which is before, behind and beyond any thoughts or words.
God is Light. I Am Light. You are Light. There is Only 'This'. In this thisness....is All ! Know this, Be this, Live this, Radiate this. - its truth will shine forth out of the essence of your being, for it is what you ARE.

It's been awhile since posting and devoting more time lately to writing and dialogues at Theologyonline.
Been looking into the school of Agni Yoga, and the wonderful inspired poetry from Master Morya. I'll share some verses from Leaves of Morya's garden with commentary, honoring the fire-yoga of spiritual will, awakening the warrior of light within.
The warrior's song
108. Fear not being insufficiently active; the air is tense and the
fiery cross of love will cover the field of your battle,
and the song of harmony will ascend.
112. The Hand of the Teacher reveals the power of the rays.
Comprehend their salutary light.
Morya fills your being with the power of calmness.
And when the stillness of harmony embraces you
the force of your arrows will increase.
114. I tell you — be vigilant.
Combine strength and understanding.
My Ring will seal the happiness of those who spread
120. In the history of mankind is revealed the great
battle at the change of races; at the call to battle
each summoned warrior takes up his arms.
Providence leads nations by way of struggle; and you,
My warriors, guard yourselves with the Shield of
God’s Will, and the Divine Song will ever find
echo within you.
130. The Bliss manifested on the Heavenly Heights
will bestow courage upon the legion of warriors
150. The ray disperses the clouds — a new path is
revealed to the conqueror.
- Leaves of Morya's Garden 1
The infantry of Light mounts the plain, ascending to Mount Zion, with the zeal of truth, banner of wisdom, and vanguard of Light. They scale space and time for the Victory of the Spirit, triumphing in the eternal Will.

In the silent sacturary of Being lies all the actuality and potentiality of Existence, the cradle of creation. In the interior sea of original Awareness is born all idea and thought of Spirit's imagining, which is according to its own kind, that of divine Perfection, Love and Wisdom. From this 'Beingness' of Omnipresence is Eternal Good, the outpicturing expression of Spirit's own inherent Nature. Brahma (Infinite, Absolute, Immortal Spirit) is the source and substance of the individualized Atman(living soul), so that in the Light of Self-realization, the Soul acknowledges...'I AM That'. All there is, is 'that'.
Our true life is in Spirit, our divine ground and source. As we abide in Spirit, the Light of God...there in this realm of essential being...is freedom. How does Truth make us free? - it does so by liberating from all falsehood or illusion, and opens us to the already existing eternity of NOW, wherein is Omnipresent Good, light, love, perfection, wholeness. This is the fundamental of where we begin and where we end, for in Omnipresence...there is only God...the eternity of LOVE.
No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. - 1 John 4:12-16
