Life and Teaching

Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East (mp3, 11.8 MB).

This is an excerpt from Baird T. Spalding's Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East, a piece I originally put up here. I have included it because after listening to it a few hundred times, I have decided it is so rich with nuance that I should include it in an album. For example, it mentions earth energy, the chakras, and sound although all of these are very quietly stated, as though you have to already know what Jesus is talking about before you read it here.

Here is the text which I excerpted from the book.

It was calm and peaceful. There was that beautiful feeling of complete relaxation which again must be experienced to be understood. It was as though we were in a great stream of slowly moving light; we became suddenly aware that we heard the voice of Jesus but not in words. My only explanation is, that it was a pure rhythmic, flowing, vibratory influence that came to us in thought instead of words. The effect was much more pronounced than that of words; the rhythm and cadence were beyond description. Thoughts seemed to flood in and lodge; this was an entirely new experience.

One of our party thought for a moment and then asked, "How can we bring forth this light and make practical use of it?"

The answer came. "Let your body become a generator through which this Great Creative Radiating Principle flows. See this Principle as the emanation of all power; know that it is the principle of all power; then, like an electric generator, your body will collect and magnify this energy until you send it out as a stream of pure white light that nothing can resist, and anything directed toward you cannot harm you.

"Nothing can come near you when you stand in the Holy Mount, One with God. This is not a special privilege for a few, this is for all; I AM, the great absolute cause or source in which every child stands one with God. Thus all live under THE LAW, the highest vibratory thought action. There is not an inharmonious vibration that can enter this sphere, this throne, where all belong and are at home. This is your Divine Kingdom.

"You can also use this power to return false and harmful thoughts or desires that are directed toward you. You can, if you so desire, step up this white God-light-beam, endow it with God power, magnify and transform the energy the sender has given the thing or condition that was intended for you, then place it into your reflector and send it back to the sender with the velocity of light. When you return it in this way it is a beam of pure white light, instead of merely lowered vibrations, as it was sent out to you.

"When it reaches the sender, the impulses are so potent that it can destroy the body of the one who first put in motion the lower vibration. It matters not whether you know the sender or the location from which it came, the vibration will return to its source unerringly.

"You can transform God-power and send it out with such force that it is irresistible. These are the beams or rays of light that you see emanating from my body. These rays are emanating from your body, although they are not yet as potent; but as you go on and use this power, allied with Law and Principle, you will add potency to the light and can consciously direct it to accomplish any good desire.

"Now, step up this white beam which is the God-beam upon which you send out God-power; endow it with God-power transformed, ten thousand or ten million times greater than that which has been sent out to you and which you are returning (this is as you decree); then let it flow back upon the same path that the vibrations of the thing traveled to you.

"Thus you see that, as you send out good or evil, it will return to you fourfold.

"You are standing forth as the Lord or Law giving forth Good or God for evil but, even in this attitude, be truly humble, JUDGE NOT. Place every bit of love you possess upon this pure white ray and see well to it that it is the pure love of God that you are generating and sending forth. As you accomplish this, legions are at your command. You are still meek and humble, willing to follow on with the light. It is the pure light of God that you follow; and that light is life, love, purity and beauty, eternal and profound.

"There are seven centers in your body that can be used as reflectors. You can cause these central points to glow with a radiance far greater than any artificial light and, when you wish to send out this light, it glows with a greater potency and will reach farther than any electrical beam that can be projected.

"By setting all these centers aglow at the same time, you are completely surrounded by an armor that nothing can penetrate.

"You can send out the pure white ray of God, so energized that your body actually glows with a brilliancy far greater than that of the noonday sun. You stand forth Lord of Creation, the Lord of Hosts. You stand forth true and triumphant yet peaceful, loving, God enthroned in your body, and that body beautiful, spiritual, and divine."

"In this way you can make your body completely invisible to mortal sight by focusing your entire thought fully and definitely upon the pure white God ray and letting it go forth from the seven centers as reflectors, in unison.

"Then, again you can step right out on either of these rays and present any picture that you wish to those that would do you harm. You can follow on this beam with the exact speed of light, and go where you will, instantly. Your body is invisible to those who do not see through and beyond the mortal. They are aware that there is something they do not understand; thus, they are susceptible to any picture you wish to present to them. That which they do not understand is mysterious or super-natural and the faculty which is developed through suspicion or superstition is easily misled. Thus you send out love to those that would do you harm and the energy they release reflects back to them.

We send only the pure white ray of God love to them and if they resist that love with hate, malice, or revenge, they, of their own free will, turn that ray into a flame that will consume them. You need have no fear. We offer only love and have no power to compel them to accept.

[As Jesus began speaking, a perfect calm came over the entire village and its inhabitants. These are His words, translated into English by Jesus Himself. My most fervent prayer will always be that I shall never forget them, though I live to be ten thousand years.]

"As I stand alone in Your great silence, God my Father, in the midst of me there blazes a pure light and it fills every atom of my whole being with its great radiance. Life, Love, Strength, Purity, Beauty, Perfection, stand forth in all dominion within me. As I gaze into the very heart of this light, I see another light - liquid, soft, golden-white and radiantly luminous-absorbing, mothering and giving forth the caressing fire of the Greater Light.

"Now I know that I am God and one with God's whole universe. I whisper to God my Father and I am undisturbed. "Yet in this complete silence there exists God's Greatest Activity. Again, I am undisturbed and complete silence is all about me. Now the radiance of this light spreads to God's vast universe and everywhere I know there is God's conscious life. Again, I say fearlessly, I am God; I am silent and unafraid.

"I lift the Christ high within me and sing God's praise. In the tones of my music inspiration hums. Louder and louder within me the Great Mother sings of new life. Louder and clearer with each new day, inspiration is lifting my conscious thought until it is attuned to God's rhythm. Again, I lift the Christ high and give close ear that I may hear the glad music. My keynote is harmony and the theme of my song is God and God seals my song as Truth.


"I am free with the great light of Your Spirit, God my Father, Your seal is placed upon my forehead. I accept.

"I hold your light high, God my Father. Again, I accept."
