Two Replies to Wonderful Readers
Two Replies to Wonderful Readers
[These are my replies to two emails sent to me from wonderful readers.
I have left them anonymous and hope that my answers may be of some use to others.]
Thank you for your kind words.
I wrote the Inanna books back in the 1990s. They weren't terribly successful then, but twenty years later I made them a free PDF and they have flown out into the world. Inanna Returns is nearing 150,000 copies! So I'm thinking that more people now understand that this is all about God.
When I reread both the Inanna books, I was pleased with the wisdom in them. I have spent the last 14 years focused on the ancient Sanskrit texts and teaching myself Sanskrit, not so easy at my age and I am still proceeding slowly.
Based on my visions and other experiences I do believe that we are a colony. One of thousands. How many galaxies are there now? It cannot be possible that we are the only life in the universe. I'm still looking for answers in the mysterious Rig Veda.
instead of denying the existence of anything, the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad accedes to the existence of everything as a manifest form of the one and the same Self.
- excerpt from Karma and Reincarnation by Swami Muni Narayana Prasad; D.K. Print world Ltd., New Delhi, 1993, 2006.
Enclosing within itself what appears as millions of universes of the Cosmic Egg, while abiding within them as well as within oneself, Is your Grace that everywhere is brimming.
- excerpt from the Sanmukha Stotram verse 14 in Narayana Guru Complete Works Translated & Introduced by Muni Narayana Prasad; National Book Trust, India, 2006, 2009.
Perhaps our perceived 'quarantine' on planet Earth is based on our current consciousness. I feel that we as a planet must come to the understanding that the Oneness is all pervading, in other words everyone and everything. For example:
* Mundaka Upanishad III.1.4 - translated by Swami Muni Narayana Prasad
Truly It is the One that shines out as and through everything;
It is the Prana in everything.
The wise one, seeing It in all specific manifestations,
Sporting in the Self, all his actions having become
The Selfs delighting in the Self,
He is the greatest of all Brahman-knowers.
When we understand and live in this Truth, we will stop killing each other and become not so fearful and greedy. It may be that planet Earth is a sort of school where beings graduate to God-Consciousness. Or perhaps all planetary colonies pass through this phase. I any case, we all are always the One who Veils Itself to play in Its created universes. So I'm never sure what there is to actually learn, because it is more a matter of Remembering what we have always been. We are already That. We just intentionally forget. The the idea of play LILA in Sanskrit, becomes more authentic.
My writings are up on the website in a sort of hopefully useful sequence, to move from 'new age confusion to the real ancient and eternal primordial metaphysics. I hope you enjoy Colony Earth & the Rig Veda. Its one of my favorites. I also recommend my comments on the Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita contains the essence of all the Wisdom-Knowledge in all the Sanskrit texts. Its composer Vyasa was indeed an enlightened genius. Kashmir Shaivism is difficult, but brilliant. Swami Lakshmanjoo has the power to enlighten. I am very much in awe of Swami Muni Narayana Prasad in Kerala.
It has been my hope to share what I have been privileged to study these years. Not everyone has the time or can access these books. It's amazing how it all weaves together. We exist as 'apparent' forms in a Woven Universe. Wonderful!
Many people have kundalini awakenings and wonderful spiritual experiences.
However, when they are not also grounded in Wisdom-Knowledge, they revert and often quickly to their old patterns. The One created the GUNAS (Sanskrit) to Veil Itself in the temporal appearances of Separation and multiplicity. The GUNAS are therefore very powerful and can easily overwhelm even the most very intense Realizations. We have to live our Truth every minute of every day.
It seems to me that this is what happened to you. If you are being truthful about having given up addictions, alcohol etc., then you experienced something wonderful in your Heart CHAKRA and that will stay with you for the rest of your life as a beacon to guide you through the storms that will come. But you have to do the work.
It is true that the books will not enlighten you. Yet without them we would all be lost because we would not be able to understand the significance and context of what is occurring in our inner-life. This is why I said you need to read the texts to discipline the mind. Otherwise you fall back into the same old patterns of pain, anger and escapism. You dont have to be limited to my website, there are many other teachers. I prefer the ancient Sanskrit texts, but God is everywhere!
If you have not given up addictions, alcohol etc., then you are in for a very bumpy ride. The dark forces cling to an aspirant gone wrong. You will be food a plaything for them. Not fun. Besides the God-within you has now given you a precious gift which you must cherish and protect, because it is more valuable than gold or temporal power. If you sincerely want Wisdom you will choose to practice discipline, change your habits, meditate, read the books that lead you to Peace & Wisdom Knowledge, avoid people who draw you down into their pain until you are strong enough to lift them up out of confusion and delusion.
You can be a Light in the world, but you must make the effort. I am not your Savior. I am merely the messenger of the great sages & seers I have been fortunate enough to read and perhaps absorb & understand somewhat. This is not false humility. I am still learning. I am still a work in progress. Your real teacher is the God-within you. And that is true Freedom, JIVAN MUKTI, which means Liberation in Life.
The One is Everything. Learn to see God everywhere and find the Peace that has eluded you. I tell you this because I believe you are sincere, otherwise I would not. I hope that I am right.
You will find your way Home.
