When one is enlightened with both inner Spiritual light and knowledge, by a Nearness and Union with God, this is full Enlightenment, Salvation, and Liberation while living.

Finding the Kingdom Within

From Scriptures and Holy Books we find the written references that were deliberately encoded, with the knowledge that each individual would see these layers in their own time as they developed insight through Infusion of Being or Holy Spirit. The Scriptures have seven levels, all revealing the inner Mysteries and they are the story of the Soul, its many lives, its lessons, Initiations and Levels of Consciousness and Coherence in Sacred Awakenings and the universal experience of the descent of the Holy Spirit; The Descent of Light and seeing Heavens. This Light from above enters one's Soul, this “Light Spark” then enlivened as a Flame and into Illumination, Wisdom and Intelligence, known as the “Triple Power.” This is the Dove, the Ain Soph Ur,(3) or Paramatma,(4) that is Divine Spirit, Divine Love, and the Divine Light of Illuminated Knowledge. This is sometimes witnessed by others as Golden Coronal Light, a Radiance of Spirit, now part of ones Being. One sees and feels the inner coherence as the Son (Inner Sun), that light of the Spirit Expanding, through the Fire, in the Heart and a Lighted Inner Radiance.

Coherence and Golden Coronal Light

Coherence has multiple levels:
  • Mind Resonance
  • Heart Resonance
  • Soul Resonance
  • Divine Mind Resonance
  • Unbounded Spirit Resonance

Each of these represent another level of expansion and progression in the “Kingdom within”. Each is a Unified Field of Comprehension and Illuminated Knowledge.

There are different types of Spiritual Light:
  • The outer light seen
  • The Light that fills one's head and is seen
  • The Spirit Light, The Holy Spirit or Coronal light

The Spirit Light (the fire felt in the heart) is that which illuminates one's Soul and is also called the Golden Glow, Golden Light, or Coronal Light of God. The Light is sometimes experienced in meditation and it also has physical purifying effects that are felt along with the Gifts or Spiritual Powers that unfold over time.

Union with God

Love just “is”, and Love can only “be” Love. Every kind and loving thought matters, every kind act, every thoughtful spoken word, every heartfelt Prayer, as well as, every consciously aware addition of the expansion of Beauty, Kindness, Compassion, Love and Truth. From this we see the beneficial effects and necessity of Spiritual life, of the Knowledge that needs to be consciously experienced. We need to learn that the brain in finite, and Consciousness is infinite. Science is now concluding that Consciousness is not just located in the mind-brain, rather it is non-local, just as it is the Soul that is the unbounded Spark sent forth from the Divine that is the Unbounded in Spirit. It is the Soul in expanding Consciousness that awakens the heart in Spiritual Fire, to feel, to sense. The mind then expands to “knowing” and will not want to cause pain or harm to others or disrupt or destroy the delicate Balance of Nature that that supports all life forms and is in Union with the Supreme. Right action comes from Divine understanding and this applies all life, to right treatment of animals as they are innocents, little brothers and sisters evolving from group souls to individualization as they learn greater love from humans. As they become more self-aware, they feel more and humanity is charged to be their loving Stewards and to help and protect their growth and life.

Here then is living in Righteousness, which seeks to bring clarity and rectify any wrongs one recognizes they have done and desires that Truth be restored so any debt in our relative life is balanced in the now. One knows that what is not faced, will return for us to face again, so living in Self-Referral is to be embraced in this awareness. It is as Guru Dev said, we are to be, “Living with one's bags packed…”, ready to go, ensuring the lessons are learned so that one does not pass from this world in regret or guilt.

There are of course accidents and injustices in life; there are good people who are suffering and it is not their karma, there are those Greats who came, some then and now, who have no intent nor thought to harm others and only wish to give who have suffered and died. There are those who suffer now at the hands of others due to the fact humanity is at different stages of development. The body is a temporal home for the soul, it is subject to illness and injury and the body sooner or later has problems, particularly as it ages. It is a misconception that only one who is healthy can experience higher states of Consciousness. The Divine is of the “Supreme Spirit” and is non-relative and it places this truth in the Soul. Life in all its forms is Sacred, each life is destined to evolve, grow, experience happiness, love and respect. Still, Holy Forgiveness is available to all and in this transition period, this Spiritual Dispensation of Repentance and Forgiveness, is a gift available to all people of good will and this is by God's Will. From Within then: He Is Risen, the Risen Christ in the hearts of humankind.

We are in that time of revelation where inner and outer life require understanding, integration, comprehension, and these experiences are seen as a natural function of Being. Enlightenment is natural and has several levels; one is enlightened to a new reality or understanding, one is enlightened to their Soul, in memories and eternal life, one is enlightened to the Cosmos and the Celestial Realms, one is enlightened in Knowledge and Nearness and Union with God, as full Enlightenment leads to Salvation and Liberation while living. This then is Jiva Mukti Moksha,(5) when we are liberated and free from karma or our earthly debts and obligations.

The Greater Truths

The non-relative truth is not bias, partial, or particular to any group or organization; it belongs to each heart and is Natural to this time as the eternal Truth is realized and lived. This is critical to Consciousness growth, to have right use of expansion in all fields: in Education, Science, Ecology, Medicine and Technology. Union with God reveals the Divine as it guides us in accordance with the Inner to outer Laws with the true value of life and the responsibility of each individual Soul to all Souls, and to all life forms. This confirms dignity and equality to all life and its importance as Consciousness, which is “Soul in Spirit” expansion and teaches the mind, through the Soul and Heart, the mysteries of life and right use of Knowledge.

The body is a temporal home for the soul, it is subject to illness and injury and the body sooner or later has problems, particularly as it ages. It is a misconception that only one who is healthy can experience higher states of Consciousness. The Divine is of the “Supreme Spirit” and is non-relative and it places this truth in the Soul. Life in all its forms is Sacred, each life is destined to evolve, grow, experience happiness, love and respect.

Christ Jesus told us, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness;”(6) and further “… behold, the kingdom is within you.”(7) Life is to be lived in the fullness of God and through inner unfoldment, self-reflection and understanding so that the mind begins to no longer resist, nor desires to repeat stresses of the past, because placing God ”first” gives solace and direction to life and the power found in Prayer flows from inner gratitude and Love. Down the ages this inner peace was known to be what created outer peace in life. This is not a function of the mind. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in a lecture in 1961 stated that, “Meditation first healed the Soul.” and this is the Key to the Inner Kingdom, where love in the heart is overflowing from inner healing. In 1964 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in a Lecture also stated, “First know God, then one will know to do right action” echoing the words of Christ.

This image expresses how the Almighty's Unspoken Name, Infinite Source as Supreme Spirit, when used in Holy Silent Meditation and Prayer, is the Sublime Divine connection in Spirit.

Meditation is a Spiritual practice, which is written and found in ancient texts and Sacred Books. The Holiness of the Word must be passed in Sacred understanding. Such is the Spiritual Power of the Word, of Mantras, Chants, Sacred Names, and that which remains Unspoken. It is transformative to the Soul, Heart, Mind and Body as it touches and Infuses the Divine in Inner Light as one is bathed in God's Love, which creates Peace in one's own self and for others. Soul awakening enables one to see clearly, for one must have the knowledge of positive and negative to choose from a position of Wisdom and distinguish that which harms no one.

As our Consciousness continues to expand there is greater understanding and this will then give rise to greater Awareness and Truths. These Truths reveal to the Enlightened ones very own Self, and that Self, as Soul, lives with all in and with The Supreme, the Almighty, The Very Source of Creation.
