A family in Georgia is reeling from a pizza order that left their 2-year-old with second-degree burns. Little Caesars insists that it did nothing wrong. When the Knowledge is one day "exposed," and the techniques are "revealed" on the evening news, grace is the one secret that won't be lost. The deep inner feeling that makes a human being unflinchingly devoted to ending all selfishness and hypocrisy that exists in the world is the effect of grace.
Like all manifestations of the Knowledge of Guru Maharaj Ji, it can only be experienced, not fully described. Grace comes to us from the infinite mercy of God, revealed only by Satguru. Those who receive Knowledge are truly, supremely, eternally blessed. For two thousand years people have called themselves his followers, but how man' of them could answer that question? People hay fought crusades on behalf of one who taught men to turn the other cheek, and set themselves up as inquisitors on behalf of one who said, "Judge not, that ye be not judged.
There are lots of people who think that the answer to Jesus' identity is preserved between the covers of the Bible. Yet hundreds and hundreds of Christian splinter groups have formed, all basing their beliefs on the same Bible, even though that very Bible declares, "There is one body, and one Spirit, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Did Jesus ever mean us to understand him through Words? It's more than a little eye-opening to realize that he didn't write anything. But what's even more revealing is what Jesus himself says about the scriptures: In other words, sure, look into the scriptures, find out what they're saying. They're telling you that everyone needs a living Master. And that the best a scripture can hope to do is to point the way to one. According to the Essene Gospel, Jesus said, "Seek not the law in your scriptures, for the law is life, whereas the scripture is dead.
I tell you truly, Moses did not receive his laws from God in writing, but through the living Word The law is living Word of living God to living prophets for living men. Even while Jesus was alive, people who hadn't received the "Mysteries of the Kingdom" couldn't understand him: Our whole ability to grasp what Jesus was depends upon our knowing those "Mysteries of the Kingdom.
We all know that pie is supposed to be in the sky, and angels are supposed to live on clouds, but Jesus never told anyone that heaven was somewhere up there. Instead, he taught his disciples that "the kingdom of God is within you. How do we get in? Guru Maharaj Ji can open this inner eye, and anyone who takes Knowledge has the vision of what shines inside. But if we don't look with the single eye, how can we know God, who is light?
Guru Maharaj Ji's Knowledge is the Knowledge of celestial music. By bathing in its perfect harmonies, the static of our restless mind is cleansed away. Can we fully know the peace of Cod without having heard that inner music? Jesus told the woman of Samara: Guru Maharaj Ji's Knowledge is the Knowledge of divine nectar. He can show us the well inside us, overflowing with milk and honey. Can we claim to know the sweetness of God if we've never tasted that nectar? Many interpret this Word to mean the gospels; but how could they exist before Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John were ever born?
And how could the Bible be God Himself? So this Word must be something else, through which we can be: The Bible tells us to call upon the name of the Lord for salvation Rom. What is the Lord's Name? It's the same Word which was in the beginning. Only with this Word can we pray without ceasing. Only with this Word can we worship the Father in spirit and in truth. Only with this Word can we be saved.
Without that constant lifeline to our Father, without constantly feeling the power of God moving within us, without bowing the eternal Vitality that is this Word, how can we know God? As long as I am in the world Many claim that Jesus is the only way to salvation, but look at this statement St.
Later he felt obliged to withdraw it. And Meister Eckhardt, the Christian mystic of medieval Germany, wrote: Jesus said, "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. But only as long as he was in the world. He promised that when he left, he would send a comforter, and that comforter would be the Holy Spirit. Guru Maharaj Ji gives his disciples direct intimacy with the in-dwelling spirit.
When Jesus came, the Pharisees refused to accept him. Their scriptures had promised them a king and they found only a carpenter's son. They found fault with his eating habits, with the company he kept. They couldn't see that the real king was the one who ruled the soul, that the real concern was with what we are fed from the spirit, that the best company was the company of those who know God.
And so, for all their talk about God, they missed the chance to know Him. If we allow our preconceptions to keep us from Guru Maharaj Ji's gift of Knowledge, aren't we running the same risk? When you take Knowledge, you won't be losing your Christianity. When you see divine light, hear celestial music, taste divine nectar, and keep the Word, you'll know the core of the Bible. You'll possess that "mustard seed" which opens into the kingdom of heaven. Will you take what he gave? Whereas, even with the advancements of the technologically expanding twentieth century, humanity has continually failed in all efforts to find a solution to misery and suffering; and.
Whereas, Knowledge of the aim of human life is being revealed to all people of the world by the living Perfect Master and spiritual head of Divine Light Mission, Paramhans Satgurudev Shri Sant Ji Maharaj, thus eliminating the cause of ignorance and misery,.
Therefore, the people who have experienced the Knowledge of Shri Sant Ji Maharaj, with full awareness of the difficulties of living without knowing the aim of human life, are compelled to reach out to the rest of the struggling humanity to spread the solution to strife and suffering by a commitment to work in all fields of endeavor for the elevation of humanity, manifesting an exemplary alternative to be known as the Divine United Organization or D.
Gary and Will staked the claim, and I joined them a few days after they had moved in. From the window of Guru Maharaj Ji's room we could see a cross on a hill, lit at night with a statue of Christ blessing the city. The place was small, but full of grace. Every night people came to hear satsang and to sing with us. There was Guru Maharaj Ji's presence there, so though people pie could not understand the means through which we expressed our love, they felt the feeling of truth being expressed and came closer to be warmed by it.
We knew nothing of what to do. We were dressed in Eastern dress, Gary and Will with dhotis; Will had long hair and a beard. I wore a sari, and we all painted red dots on our foreheads. But the grace was so strong, and Guru Maharaj Ji's vibration so new and fresh, that no one paid too much attention to our appearance. One time Gary and Will gave satsang at a university in Los Angeles. They spoke for hours-and finally, when the satsang was over and the feeling was high, they asked the audience if there were any questions.
A boy wised his hand and said, "What are you talking about? But Guru Maharaj Ji was entering people's hearts. A feeling had been re-captured, and now their souls were stirring again because at last in America the message of the Perfect Lord was being delivered. No one ever understands; the soul only feels that at last, my time has come. We had dinners at the ashram to attract people and raise money. We had no money at all, but Guru Maharaj Ji always provided for us.
We gave satsang and did service, and others would always provide vegetables and money, cars and helping hands. Sometimes our food ran out, sometimes we wondered how we would pay the rent, but we never worried. We lived in the feeling of Guru Maharaj Ji's presence. Sometimes we would enter another world, when Gary would sing and play guitar and I would play harmonium-we entered Guru Maharaj Ji and knew such bliss.
When there were problems between us, we would sit down together and talk. We knew we had to work together perfectly, that the ashram must be pure and perfect, and we were always aware of how Guru Maharaj Ji was showing us the way, teaching us how to behave. We gave satsang everywhere-but more and more people were coming to the ashram now, and satsang was 24 hours a day. I was always in contact with Mahatma Ashokanand in England and writing to the Holy Family in India and all the devotees there I loved and felt so close to.
One day Mahatma Ji phoned me with the news. Guru Maharaj Ji would arrive in London in June. There is no way to explain how we felt. He had said that he would not be coming for many years, and now it was only a matter of weeks How we longed for him to come here!
We determined to prepare for Guru Maharaj Ji and then request from our hearts that he come to us. The next month passed in a flurry of excitement. We Wrote all the societies and organizations to tell them of Guru Maharaj Ji and his arrival in the West. We made visa preparations. It was difficult to get Guru Maharaj Ji's visa. Gary and I were going to the officer every day to see how things were going. Our minds were fixed that nothing would stand in the way of his arrival, and soon even the visa officer was helping us.
Guru Maharaj Ji was to arrive in London on June 17, That night Gary typed, I paced up and down. I typed, Gary paced up and down. Our hearts were in London. I sent a telegram to England welcoming him and begging him to come. It was so funny to hear the telegram operator repeat the message. She said at the end, "Oh, that's wonderful! We phoned Mahatma Ji in London who by now was completely out of his body with anticipation.
Sandy and Ron also comforted us, saying "Guru Maharaj Ji will come to you and then we will be the ones who will weep. The night wore on and we were still pacing. Then at 4 a. Gary picked it up, saying "Divine Light Mission. I didn't know what was going on. We didn't know what time it was or where we were. There was just this phone call. I picked up the phone and said, "Divine Light Mission. He said loudly, "Joan, when are you coming to London? It was too much for my heart to handle.
The whole week I had been thinking of flying there, scheming of how I could escape to greet him. I had stayed only because there was so much work to be done in Los Angeles. And now he asked me this! We are trying to prepare for you. What should I do? Gary and I left the world. We jumped, screamed, laughed, cried, over and over. Things started happening very quickly. Three more premies came-Suzy, Arthur, John-and Sharon Keller, who didn't have Knowledge yet, dropped everything and came from Philadelphia.
It was so blissful. We made leaflets, brochures, pamphlets, posters. We rented the Wilshire Ebell Theater, arranged press conferences, fought the time barriers and won Guru Maharaj Ji's visa. And finally that day came. Newsweek printed a story of his arrival.
All the television cameras were there. Hundreds flocked to see him at the airport. There were so many flowers everywhere. Children, incense, bells, reporters, cameras, tape recorders, songs. The Lard had come. Divine Light Mission began in India in The organization flourished until, in , the membership numbered several million.
And when Guru Maharaji Ji's father left his body on July 19, , the leadership of the Mission passed to his youngest son, the new Perfect Master. The eight-year-old Guru Maharaji Ji acted with the wisdom and discretion of a man far beyond his years. He provided clear insight for all his devotees, and Divine Light Mission grew by leaps and bounds.
Under his direction, a hospital and school were opened to provide for the health and education of his followers. The World Peace Corps was organized to care for the sick and the needy, especially in times of national disaster. They were caught by that omnipresent love; they had little resistance-and when at last they received Knowledge, Guru Maharaji Ji began speaking to them of how the West, like the East urgently needed a solution for the problem of human suffering Mahatma Guru Charnanand was the first disciple sent by Guru Maharaj Ji to give Knowledge outside India; he arrived in London in October The Western devotees returned home as they were ready.
In November , one-and-a-half million people-the largest number ever gathered for a purpose other than war-assembled at India Gate in New Delhi to pay homage to the Perfect Master. Everywhere he went, thousands flocked to hear him. Hundreds stayed to receive his Knowledge. The Mission, newly incorporated as a non-profit spiritual, religious, educational, and charitable organization, chartered a jumbo jet so that five hundred devotees might return with their Perfect Master to India for the Hans Jayanti Festival that November.
Six thousand persons attended, and the normally august Denver Post celebrated the event with a full-page article headlined, "Gum's Festival 'Perfect'.
Divine Light Mission was becoming organized-it had 45 centers, 15, members, and a national headquarters in Denver. By now, Guru Maharaj Ji had traveled throughout all the non-Communist world. His World Peace Tour of climaxed when eight jumbo jets were chartered to ferry all the western pilgrims to Hans Jayanti. The Americans alone filled five planes. It was a first in aviation history. Divine Light Mission paused to take stock of itself. Its membership in the United States alone was 35,, where it operated centers linked by Telex and united as a family.
Divine Light Mission had become far more a divine civilization in its infancy. Its focus is on the media, to communicate Gum Maharaj Ji's message of peace. Shri Hans Publications produces a newspaper, The Divine Times, and a full-color monthly magazine called And It Is Divine with a current circulation of more than , The magazine, which features articles on politics, science, religion, industry, and the arts, has won worldwide acclaim; it is supervised- and frequently edited-by Guru Maharaj Ji himself.
The doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, nutritionists and other specialists of Shri Hans Humanitarian Services have made prevention their top priority. Spurred by the understanding that physical illness is Closely linked to the mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of people in modem society, their treatment and prevention is based on love and understanding. Meditation on the Knowledge gives each physician a profound sense Of the bond between doctor and patient; he is able to devote his efforts selflessly, taking enough time with each patient to respond to all his needs.
These professionals, who volunteer their services full-time, operate a fully staffed clinic in New York City and a farm retreat in Rhode Island. Recognizing that Western education is unable to prepare our children for real life, Guru Maharaj Ji directed the teachers of Shri Hans Educational to find a solution as soon as possible. Since then the teachers have been rediscovering how a child can receive a balanced and completely human education, rather than suffering a spiritless and deadening routine.
Their efforts will bear fruit this fall when their first school opens in Denver. Divine Sales International takes from the rich and gives to the poor-but everything it sells is donated rather than stolen.
Visitors are astonished to see working television sets on sale for a few dollars, shirts and pants going for twenty-five cents. The first American branch opened in New York in the fall of ; by now, branches have been opened in the largest American cities. All profits return to Divine Light Mission to pay for the solutions to the problems of mankind. Premies and non-premies work side by side far into the night, repairing damaged merchandise, sorting gifts and making every store as beautiful as possible.
Working for divine business isn't a job-it's a privilege and even a delight. Divine Services offers painting, carpentry, plumbing, housecleaning, lawn care, auto repair, and many other services throughout the country. As the newest branch of the divine economy, its prices have made it so popular that it cannot keep up with demand.
A Divine Food Co-op Service may soon be on the way. That's only the beginning. There's also Shri Hans Aviation, a divine airline; Divine Travel Services and Divine Travel International, organized to ferry devotees by the tens of thousands to festivals and special projects throughout the world; Shri Hans Engineering and Divine Electronics, wholesale marketers of electronics equipment and designers of everything from inventions to new cities.
The Players of the Living Arts are the musicians, actors, dancers, artists and singers of the new age. Guru Maharaj Ji knew this would happen from the start. In December, , and January, , he designed the Divine United Organization, or DUO, as a master plan for the rediscovery of humanity, an organization capable of meeting global needs with total solutions.
DUO coordinates the entire divine community, and under the guidance of Guru Maharaj Ji works through purely constructive means to remold this world as a humanistic society where people base their lives upon service rather than selfishness.
For the members of DUO, work is worship. The Mission is different from all other organizations in that all of its members have received Knowledge. They have scrapped every ulterior motive and rededicated their lives. They are well on their way to total selflessness. Taking only what they need, giving all of themselves to the task, they are tackling the most massive job that men have ever faced-out of love for their Perfect Master, Guru Maharaj Ji.
Who among us has not at some time stood on a hillside, looking out over a valley, heard the song of birds, and the wind in the trees, and felt some mysterious emotion welling up within the heart? For a moment we were at one with everything, for a moment the routine of our life 'was broken and we found ourselves wondering at the beauty of existence. There is something strangely beautiful in this all too rare moment, when for once life is seen in a little more depth.
We sense that life is a very wonderful, a blessed experience. What intangible essence lying beyond our conscious recognition is responsible for our life? We only feel a kind of tingle, exciting freshness, somewhere within, a sense of rightness, of belonging to everything. In search of this brief instant, men Climb Mountains, soar on the winds, dive to the ocean depths and attempt impossible feats of bravado.
We search for affinity with nature, which we can glimpse within us something as perfect as the sun and the bird's song, as the sky and the wind, and as the flowers of springtime.
A glimpse of unity, a oneness with all things only faintly hinted at from around the edge of the mind. Most of our lives we seem destined to experience Separation from each other, from nature, from the pure powers of life, and from God. Why, we are even cut off from our own self, and the members of OUT families. Yet, strange though it may seem, this body, the human form, is created to allow the soul to experience the end of all separateness, the final coming together: Only in this way can we live together on earth in perfect harmony.
The soul which was once a part of God is in its true nature perfect oneness; yet due to the influence of the millions of forms all around us, the soul's attention becomes divided, and unified experience is lost. Perhaps our experiences of nature recall some distant memory of the soul to us, and this is the cause of our awareness of deeper joys; for in the soul waiting to be realized, there lies a reservoir of peaceful happiness.
All of the power and beauty that has gone into this creation lies in seed form at the center of our being. The realization of this perfection within is an inborn desire in every human being, and whichever way man may try to achieve this realization by external means, this desire will not be fulfilled. The purpose for which this human body was created is just this, that we may know that higher bliss which frees us from suffering, and allows us to enjoy our lives from moment to moment.
It is the will of the divine that every human being should know this. It rests with us to find this perfect peace and happiness; when we l have found it, automatically our hearts will wish to tell others of the new joy in our lives. In the beginning of time, when space and time first separated and space opened out into three dimensions, before the creation of universe, before the first pair of opposites was formed, there was a perfect essence, aware, possessing all divine qualities, a supreme intelligence.
Far more empty than space, more eternal than time itself, is the absolute, so marvelously empty that it is completely full. It contains all that has been, all that is, and all that shall be. Its divine qualities cannot be described, yet still we name them: Words cannot do justice to that immaculate perfection who is at once our creator and compassionate Father, the very soul of our life, the primal energy, mother of the whole universe of nature.
While she cares for every single creature, sustaining the ideal environment, he dwells within as the very consciousness itself. Formed and formless they are one energy, one perfect vibration. Now this vibration is the invisible force sustaining the life within this body and in all creatures, maintaining the motion of all the systems even down to the last atom. From time immemorial there have been Masters who revealed this energy, and disciples who experienced it within themselves through the Master's grace.
They referred to it as the Word. It is the simplest and subtlest vibration in the whole universe the pure, pristine state of unmanifested consciousness. All beings are endowed with this consciousness and are thus potentially divine, but only the human being is able to recognize and manifest this divinity. The Word is the true form of the self, our true identity. It is also the true form of God. Yet only in the Perfect Master is it totally manifested, and in the normal human being it is obscured.
The true Master in this age is Guru Maharaj Ji, and he has been born to reveal this eternal reality Within US, to return us to that eternal state which is beyond suffering, fear, and delusion. When this Knowledge is given, it is shown practically. The Word, the pure wave of being, is clearly revealed, and its pure energy is clearly seen as radiant light.
The space enshrouded in mystery where it dwells is filled with sweet music, and perfumed by the delicious nectar of bliss. It is an experience transcending time and space, yet of great significance to our lives, here and now. The Word, in reality, is all there is all we are. In terms of true existence, it is the only one thing in the universe.
Atoms, molecules, cells, life forms, worlds, stars and galaxies are in essence this Word: The outer shell will disappear in time, but the Word will remain forever. The great cycle of the entire universe is simply one manifestation of the Word, from beginning to end. Life is the finest manifestation of the Word, and in human life the Word is manifested most clearly, provided we make ourselves disciples of the Master.
His power can pierce the obscuring veil of ignorance which surrounds the Word and permit us to see that pure energy in our hearts: The whole universe is a play where his life can assume countless forms; and in the final act of the play, his life finds its original form again, the pure love of the father. Dear sisters, brothers, fathers, mothers and children, the final and most blissful part of God's plan for the universe can only be enacted with your cooperation, When you receive this Knowledge, you'll wish to thank with every fiber of your body the mother who gave you birth, you will wish to worship God with every second, every breath of your life.
To every human being you will smile the smile of self recognition and extend the hand of brotherhood and unity, and you will welcome all life forms and all nature as if part of your own body.
Until that time, we are dreaming an uncomfortable nightmare, trapped in illusion, blinded, deluded by the world around us, unaware that our fears are for nothing and that the key to eternal peace and happy contentment is in the hands of fifteen-year-old Guru Maharaj Ji. The door to that everlasting bliss is within our own heart. Many times your soul has cried out in pain and confusion, it has longed for this opportunity to disentangle itself from a never ending dream punctuated by birth and death.
Many times the soul, in birth, in death and through life, imagines itself released, but there is only a transformation: The illusion goes on until, in the human form, we hear this message, telling us how we may find the divine teacher who will open the door from illusion into reality, from death to eternal life, and from suffering to blissful joy.
All who hear this, please take heed. Whether you realize it or not, you are searching only for this. This is the great gift which God bestows upon us, with great love and hope that we do not waste it. Your own soul will be most disappointed if it comes to the end of this short span as a human being no nearer to knowing the bliss of its own reality.
Not knowing when we may obtain another such opportunity, the disappointment of our soul may become a long and bitter agony. Do not concern yourself with intellectual questioning, you cannot weigh this urgent message with the concepts of your past, you can only feel its sincerity in your heart.
There is never as much time as we imagine, the world itself is in political instability and in this special time we, as Divine United Organization, disciples of Guru Maharaj Ji, Perfect Master of the Aquarian Age, call upon you to take responsibility for the future of our world and of our race.
You may not know it, but by knowing the oneness within you, you are making a great step towards the oneness of mankind, and we urge you to take this message seriously, hear it with your heart and to avail yourself of the perfect Knowledge; being given at this very time out of the infinite mercy and compassion of Guru Maharaj Ji.
Ever since Einstein, Michelson, and Morley demolished some of the basic assumptions of science, small schools of scientists have been plumbing the limits of scientific knowledge-from sub-atomic physics to evolution to the heat death of the universe and the origins of the cosmos-seeking for an unshakable scientific reality as comforting as the myths they were leaving behind. They tested the ultimate nature of matter, with cyclotrons, atomic bombs, electron microscopes, and radio-astronomy, in the hopes of finding the ultimate building block of the material world.
They bred and irradiated plants and animals, dug up fossils, and collected specimens, to see if evolution might be said to have a purpose. They calculated the mass and speed of the receding galaxies, worked out the mathematics of diffusion and entropy, and plumbed the limits of space with radio telescopes and cameras in satellites to see if the universe would have to die some day-and if it did, whether it would ever begin again.
To see if galaxies would fall away from us forever. To know if, when the last star burned out, a light would ever be re-kindled. To know if life was doomed. And they tried to find out how it all began. Michelson and Morley were only able to upset established science because established science had made assumptions that it thought were common-sense facts. Established science had assumed, for instance, that space was full of an ocean of stuff called ether, and that light travels through ether at a constant speed.
Just as, when you drive through a steady downpour; the rain seems to fall toward your windshield no matter which way you turn.
In the same way, scientists thought, since the earth travels through space, light ought to be hitting its forward side travelling at a faster speed than the light that hits the rear of the earth. So Michelson and Morley decided to find which way the earth was going, and how fast, building a gadget that would measure the speed light and taking measurements with the gadget pointing in different directions. It was a nice idea, but didn't work. No matter which way they pointed t machine, light always seems to be travelling at precisely the same speed.
A little while later, Einstein came up with his revolutionary Special Theory of Relativity. One of the things this theory showed was that the speed of light is an absolute. No matter how fast you are travelling, light always' leaves you and reaches YOU at a single speed. Another thing this theory proved is that nobody can travel faster than light, no matter how hard he tries.
Einstein also proved that when you travel at the speed of light, time stops. This formula is usually translated as "Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared. Imagine an atom exploding into light, the light flashing through space at an incredible , miles per second, and hitting every point in space it passes through with a force that itself is pure energy, pure speed, the essence of power, a force so powerful that it seems ready to leap away from the light at the speed of light redoubled.
The flash of an atomic bomb from a pinhead of matter liberated into energy. The speed of light squared. The schools of scientists who followed Einstein were unable to come up with any vision as brilliant as that, but they began to turn up some tantalizing cities.
They found that the universe bad begun as a vast cosmic egg of light, which in one timeless moment had exploded into the universe. They found that there was at least the possibility that the universe might fall back into that cosmic egg of light at some far-off future time.
In such an egg, matter could not exist All matter would be liberated into pure light, and all light would be merged into one. The atom defeated its investigators, the seekers for the tiniest particle from which everything else could be built. They found that, when you get that small, it's not even clear that particles are particles. Under some conditions they behave like droplets of water or mercury-except that these were droplets of electrical charge, or even droplets made of two or three different charges linked somehow together.
Under other conditions they behaved like fuzzy clouds of something, clouds that were very very thick in one small area and thinned out, without any sort of edge to them, all the way to the farthest galaxies. There is a little bit of every atom in your body beyond the farthest galaxies.
Scientists had entered the realm of things so small that matter was very little different from energy. They worked out the shapes of the electron shells that surround an atom's nucleus. The shells look like different sorts of energy forms bent back on them until they start going around and around the atom in a loop. But one mathematician describes them as the shapes of the places where different styles of energy feel most comfortable.
This was the land of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Scientists found that the very light they used to see these particles or clouds, or whatever they were was so very nearly as solid as the particles if that's what they were that it would knock them around all over the place. And this made it impossible to see what was going on-especially when the light started to look like it was part of the particle.
In fact, the experiment seemed to be embarrassed in the presence of the experimenter. The scientists who studied light found that it would act like either a wave or a particle, depending on how they asked their questions. If they asked it to be a wave, it would be a wave Physicists had moments when it was almost too much to believe what their eyes and their instruments revealed. If there was so little difference between the smallest bits of matter and pure light, then obviously there was a very little difference between all the things that were made of matter, and the pure light that matter was convertible into.
Perhaps human beings were just energy forms bent into very complicated closed loops. Perhaps when we look at each other we are only seeing the plates where the light of which we are made feels most comfortable Except that in this ease the words "most comfortable" are a colossal understatement, because the light energy of which we are made is bound with incredible strength into the form it has taken.
Scientist grappled with the question of whether the universe was only a clock which, once wound up and left to run, was slowly winding down to an irrevocable halt. They defined the concept of entropy, which is the degree to which the universe has fallen into decay and disorder, and found that entropy must always increase. It was an awful vision, when they put it that way. These other scientists suggested that entropy on the subatomic scale might not be the spread of disorder and decay at all, but rather a process of everything falling into place-an expression of how willing the minutest bits of matter and energy were to bow to circumstance and accept their fate-a growth of harmony in the universe.
And if this is what entropy was at the smallest scale, why shouldn't we believe that this is what entropy is at every scale? That entropy is the natural growth of the most comfortable and harmonious arrangement of the universe. The only reason we were having trouble seeing that was that we were afraid of dying Still other scientists were grappling with the ultimate nature of life.
Watson and Crick, in a furious rush, deduced the structure of the DNA molecule and the way in which it reproduced. It was almost an anti-climax-the thing seemed to run like clockwork. Watson and Crick turned to other things. But more perceptive scientists asked what kept this magnificent piece of clockwork ticking-what had caused it to evolve from simpler chemicals in the first place.
Obviously it was the way in which the chemical properties in all the various atoms of the molecule combined, which gave the DNA molecule its living nature. Other scientists had already found that chemical properties of atoms were actually electrical in nature-the ways in which the electron shells of different atoms reacted to one another. So the living qualities of living matter derived from the fact that the energy it was made of was always taking the most comfortable shape, falling into place.
In a way, life seemed to be powered by the force that powered entropy, which was also the force that governed the behavior of light-a single unified law governed a single unified stuff that was sometimes energy and sometimes matter. All this law had to do was to define the forms and the properties of the subatomic wave-particles, and everything else followed naturally-the color of a sunrise, the scent of a violet, the properties of human life. Consider the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, which made it impossible to see what the fundamental nature of the subatomic particles could be.
Consider the fact that every event on the atomic scale and smaller had to be expressed in terms of probabilities, and probabilities could very well mean that the wave-particle might decide to do anything, but it would probably decide to do this.
Electrons and photons are very agreeable, very obedient, very eager to please-but there's a very small chance that in the next ten minutes every particle in your body will suddenly get up and move to the far side of Aldebaran.
A very small chance, but it's there. So maybe there are constant miracles going on down there at the subatomic scale. Maybe all the billions of billions of billions of billions of subatomic particles are alive; possessed of a very charming, agreeable and sometimes playful nature.
Maybe that's why you're alive. Everything seemed to be reducible to light Matter is simply light locked in a form. Electricity, magnetism, beat, sound-these are light affecting matter. Life is light- playing with matter. Anything that travels at the speed of light is beyond time; and matter is the only form of energy that travels any slower so time exists because light becomes matter.
Space is the relationship between bits of matter connected by light Gravity is matter stretching space. This last discovery was predicted by Einstein and verified during a solar eclipse. The only unsolved part of the puzzle apart from a few minor details was consciousness. Was this also light? If it was, it was eternal, since physics proved the light cannot be destroyed-and this would mean the whole universe is conscious, which has marvelous, marvelous implications.
Or was consciousness only an arrangement of matter and energy, in which case it was mortal and transient, and the universe a tragedy The question was still unsettled when Guru Maharaj Ji arrived in America, offering experimental evidence that consciousness was light, and the universe eternally wakeful, playful, and wise What is a wave in the ocean?
Scientists say that actually the water in the waves is only going around in circles. Six inches up, six inches forward, six inches down, six inches back -- the water moves like a roller heaping to let the wind pass over it; and though a six-inch wave seems to be going somewhere, the water isn't really going anywhere at all.
The actual wave is the circular motion of water stirred by the wind. A sine Wave is the purest wave there is. It is pure mathematics, nothing but the large circular motion making a wave out of a straight line.
Mathematicians use a tool called Fourier Analysis to show that any wave, regardless of the shape, is just that pure sine wave superimposed on itself again and again like the complicated patterns of waves in a harbor. Somehow a wind stirs an ocean of something that fills all of space. Physicists say that everything is made of light and light moves in waves. And it's all just a sine wave, a circular motion, stirring through the universe, visible as light.
The wind blows and the universe dances, round and round a center that is very hard to see. The most special wave of all is within us. It is the carrier wave that runs up and down our nervous system, connecting our brain through the nerves of our body, to our eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin, like the subtle current flowing through a telephone wire.
If nothing were to disturb that carrier wave, it would take the pure sine wave shape of primordial energy, but as soon as we start to dream, think, or wake to experience the world through our senses, the wave shape gets far more complicated.
The nerves of our senses double and re-double it, superimposing it on itself to make a multiple sine wave that describes the sensations they are having.
When the multiple sine wave arrives at the brain, our brain equipment sorts it out with a kind of Fourier Analysis to figure out what's going on. These sine waves mean there's a tree over there; that wave tells the shade of green of its leaves; all the sine waves are in harmony. And that perhaps means the tree is beautiful. All these sine waves are actually one, but it's like the one you see standing between two mirrors when you can see a reflection behind a reflection behind a reflection.
These multiple sine waves are hard on our nerves. It tires our senses to make them. It tires our brain to decipher them. And it tires our nerve cells just to let them pass through. This is only too evident after a long harrowing day when we collapse from nervous exhaustion.
We feel that all our senses have been tried to the limit and the only thing we want to do is rest. Actually what wears us out about these multiple sine waves is not that they are a more powerful current than the natural carrier wave; the natural single sine-wave-shaped carrier wave is just as powerful but so natural to us that it doesn't Burt a bit. But the multiple sine waves come from outside our body and so they are not in tune with us. Their energy disrupts the chemical balance of every cell they travel through.
They get on our nerves. Why can't we pay attention to everything at once? After all, we have five senses and an enormous brain. Why can't we use them all, all the time?
Why don't we have total awareness? When scientists first asked these questions a few years ago, they stumbled on a scientific breakthrough. They saw that there must be filters built into our nervous system that screen out most of what we see, hear, feel, taste, and smell, so that only the most important things catch our attention.
The filters are our bodies' defense against total nervous exhaustion. Researchers found that filters play favorites. If we're paying attention to something, its waves pass through the filter. If we want to be distracted, the filters let those waves through. And when we get completely absorbed, it takes something quite dramatic to pass through the filter.
Our filters make us able to concentrate our attention, and they prolong our lives by protecting our nerves. Each of the multiple sine waves that make up a moment of our waking experience is a part of the original sine wave. The filters are cutting out most of the parts. They are subtracting from our awareness of the world. They are taking a part of the sparkle out of life.
Can you remember how wonderful it was to be just a kid having a good time? It's okay to have trouble remembering if your childhood was tough. As infants we led an unfiltered life. Tears and laughter and wonderment came easily.
The whole world was bright and beautiful - just begging to be played with. But as we got older the filters took over. The subtle and the beautiful faded slowly away. We'll do almost anything to open our filters up again.
We'll attack them with alcohol and drugs. We'll relax them with vacations, massages, sex, comforting thoughts, money in the bank, people to depend on. We'll take part of the burden off our filters by moving to a penthouse, the suburbs, the country, or a monastery. We'll see psychiatrists, we'll try hypnotism, we'll sleep ten hours a day.
These things make a difference, but only a little. The multiple sine waves that tell us what country living is hike may be very much in harmony, but they're still multiple and we still need filters to cope. We still get tired, irritable, depressed, and confused. We still have crises, fights, and divorces; the filters keep closing in, life gets less fun, and so do we.
Our kids still prefer to play with other kids. Fading awareness turns us into pleasure seekers. We pursue laughter, glamor, loud music, passion, and sex because those things are loud and bright, and get a little bit of the glorious childhood past our filters. This is what life is all about! The filters close in and we start feeling jaded. We've lost it again. There's a cure, of course. Just as the multiple sine waves are the problem, the unified sine wave, the pure carrier wave, is the cure.
The multiple sine wave reflects the world our senses experience. So to give our nerves a real chance to recover, we've got to give our senses the chance to take a total break from experiencing that world. Just blanking our mind is no, solution. Not only can't we do anything in that state, but we're not experiencing anything at all. We're actually getting further from a child's bright awareness. But we can consciously experience the unified wave itself. We can see it, feel it, hear it, taste and smell it.
If we are busy using our eyes for other things we can feel it and still benefit. The conscious experience of that natural wave pulls every nerve cell that travels through it back to chemical normalcy. It tells every filter, it's all right, you can let go now. This is the most peaceful, refreshing, reassuring thing we can ever hope to experience. It's like taking a deep long drink at the Fountain of Youth. But experiencing that unified wave isn't as easy as it seems. We rely on our brain to pick out a feeling, or a memory, or experience--we know no other way.
But our brain can only work with multiple sine waves; that's the way it's built. In other words, this is one experience we can't come to on our own. What an amazing situation! Every moment in our life is written in that carrier wave. Leave all the body in perfect condition but take away the carrier wave flowing from our senses to our brain and through our brain and down again to our muscles and organs, our hearts and lungs, and experiences stop. We can't see or hear or taste or feel or smell a thing.
We can't think, our heart stops, we can't breathe. What's the carrier wave? Without it we're nothing; it is our awareness. We're always aware in it, but we don't know how to be aware of it-no matter how hard we try. We see patterns of light, we hear patterns of sound, we don't see things or hear things, we see and hear the light and sound coming from those things. And light and sound are energy. We don't taste things, we taste patterns of energy.
We don't feel things, we feel vibrations. One sine wave for each part of the pattern, for each multiple sine wave. If we experience this sine wave with our senses we will see light, hear sound, experience unified energy with every sense. White light, because white is the unified whole. Full harmonious sound, for the same reason; a totally satisfying experience naturally. This unified wave Guru Maharaj Ji reveals. Those who know the science involved, who have taken this Knowledge and have seen that he actually reveals this unified wave, know there is only one way to do this.
They have realized that Guru Maharaj Ji is not only experiencing this unified wave, the pure light of which the whole universe arid our consciousness too, is made, but he is totally in control of this wave and can therefore reveal it to others.
The implications of this are even more incredible than the implications of the Michelson-Morley experiment. It's a scientific revolution in the making. You can prove to yourself that the patterns, multiple sine waves, are what tire your senses by staring at a colored piece of paper fixedly for a few minutes and then looking quickly away to a piece of white paper on a bare white wall. You will see something of the same shape and size but of the opposite color because the color you were looking at was tiring to your optic nerve.
The shape will have fuzzy edges because your eyes are also tired of the edges. It's colors and edges that are the essence of the pattern. You can prove to yourself that blanking your mind is no better by reading up on experiments with sensory deprivation. Scientists have found that people who spend too much time in total darkness start to hallucinate as their nervous system seeks release from the strain. And you can prove to yourself the benefits of the carrier wave by experiencing it for yourself.
Just take Guru Maharaj Ji's Knowledge and give it a try. You Have Three Eyes. Recent experiments are forcing scientists to wonder why they were so quick to dismiss the pineal gland - the gland stimulated by meditation on divine light. The Greeks called the pineal the thought-controlling center of the brain; Descartes said it was the "seat of the soul.
Because the pineal is the only gland in the brain without a duplicate - and knowing God is an experience of unity. The pineal gland is responsible for maintaining the integrity and wholeness of the entire human organism. Only recently did modern scientists dare to speculate upon the functions of this gland, and now look what they are saying: One, the stimulated pineal causes energy to flow throughout the entire body so that we can experience higher levels of consciousness.
Two, it causes a maturation of the central nervous system and conceptual processes, lending grace and precision to our movements and allowing us to think more clearly on an abstract level. Three, it allows for a discharge of all drives; that is, it releases us from the domination of hunger, fear, thirst, lust, anger, and pride.
Four, it helps us find quick solutions to the most difficult practical problems. In the lamprey eel and the tuatara lizard of New Zealand, the pineal gland functions as a third eye, highly sensitive to light. These animals have three eyes: All three are connected to the brain. In higher animals, layers of skin cover the pineal gland, but this does not eliminate its ability to sense light. If an animal is active during the day and sleeps at night, the pineal will detect the change in light and adjust its metabolism accordingly.
In the daytime it makes sure the animal has plenty of energy to run, hunt, build a home, or whatever; at night the energy level decreases for sleep. These same mechanisms are operating in man, but who ever thinks of them?
And who gives the pineal credit? When was the last time someone said to you, "Oh, my metabolic rate seems a bit high today," or "My pineal gland must not be working properly because. Only when something goes wrong - when we're ill and our body cycles are disrupted - do we become aware of the perfect biological harmony which is going non-stop all our lives.
If you are outside and it suddenly gets cold, your metabolic rate will immediately speed up, your glucose will burn more quickly, and more internal heat will be generated. If that's not sufficient, your body will begin to shiver, your hairs will stand up in goose pimples and you will probably begin to move faster.
Even more, you'll begin to think, "Wouldn't it be nice to be in a warm house? You'll probably find a soda vendor on the comer or an air-conditioned store. The body has a thermostat which is always set at The endocrine system is in charge of all this, keeping the body in harmony with a massive communication network.
Thus it takes care of all the things we never stop to think about, from our heart beat and blood pressure to the amount of water in our body. Within this endocrine system, the hypothalamus and pituitary control the lower glands such as the adrenals, the thyroid, the gonads, and the pancreas.
This is universally accepted as fact. But mounting evidence suggests that all of these highly-developed body controls have one master in the brain: For a long time little was known about the pineal gland in man beyond the fact that it is a small, greyish organ-resembling a third eye-which lay deep within the brain.
Some scientists considered it a useless left-over from some earlier stage of man's development, like the appendix. Others suspected it had some influence over bodily growth and sexuality, but until quite recently, little research was done.
After all, what could possibly be the use of a light-sensitive organ in the center of the head? Studies by Barberosa , Quay , and Reiter incline one to believe that the pineal gland may exercise control over all the lower endocrine glands. Other studies suggest that if the pineal gland is removed by surgery or cut so that it will no longer function, the other glands no longer secrete hormones appropriately.
This is the reason why young boys with damaged pineal glands frequently develop secondary sex characteristics long before the normal age. The lower endocrine glands have no guide to tell them when to stop. In its position as head of the endocrine system, the pineal gland may control our daily health and bodily growth, and signal the time for the development of secondary sex characteristics.
Beyond that, it is implicated with our conceptions of reality, because the pineal is the only endocrine gland which secretes its hormones directly into the brain and cerebral spinal fluid; thus it affects the chemical make-up of the brain -which influences our emotions and awareness.
What continues to mystify the vast majority of scientists is how a light-sensitive organ can be stimulated when it is so far from any external source of light. Those scientists, however, who have received the Knowledge of Guru Maharaj Ji recognize that meditation upon the inner, self-effulgent light has a direct effect upon the pineal gland. They say, in fact, that it is the physical receptor within man for the divine light of ultimate reality.
It is technically impossible at this time to measure the amount of pineal hormone in the body. In time we may be able to set up an experiment in which people who have not received Knowledge are tested for the amount of this hormone; they might then be divided into two groups, one of which receives the Knowledge and meditates upon it regularly, the other serving as a control group.
At set intervals, the subjects could be re-tested to detect changes in the amount of pineal hormone. However, we can compare the observed behavior among disciples of Guru Maharaj Ji to the results scientists expect when a person's pineal gland is stimulated.
Since the pineal gland secretes directly into the brain fluid, any chemical change would immediately be noticed as a shift in consciousness. Indeed, many people who have just received Knowledge speak of a rebirth; they recognize something which is so joyful and fulfilling that they can immediately quit such habits as smoking, drinking, drug taking, and compulsive sex. Good food, sunshine, and plenty of sleep all contribute to health by providing nourishment to the body, but meditation changes an infinite source of light-energy into chemical hormones which benefit the entire organism.
Some disciples of Guru Maharaj Ji report they need less food and sleep when they meditate consistently.
