Do not believe…

Do not believe
in the strength of tradition,
even those that have been held in honor
for many generations and in many places.
Do not believe anything
because many people speak of it.
Do not believe
in the strength of the Sages of old times.
Do not believe
that which you yourself have imagined
thinking that a god has inspired you.
Believe nothing
which depends only on authority
of your master or of priests.
After investigation, believe that
which you have personally tested
and found reasonable,
and which is for your good
and the good of others.

Dance like Rumi, sing like Kabir

What was the true purpose of the masters of old? Were the saints, sages, mystics and masters merely here to model how to live a holy life? To tantalize us with their descriptions of the “other side”? Or were they revealing to their followers the holiest of holies, the exquisitely beautiful and powerful source of life and love itself, the kingdom of heaven already within, to be enjoyed any moment they chose?

What was it that made Rumi dance? What made Kabir laugh? What gave Jesus the love to say, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do,” even as he was hanging on a cross? What gave Socrates his wit and wisdom? What gave the Buddha so much joy?

What is the full potential of your life here and now in this moment and every moment? Can you too have a direct connection to the divine light and love that the masters knew? Can you too access the profound wisdom that gave them the ability to love as they did?

Knowledge of the Lord is your birthright. The pure in heart shall see God. Once you decide you sincerely want it, Knowledge is available to you. Read the book and allow your thirst to develop.

With the ability to see and hear and feel what the scriptures praise, your current religion may grow in even more meaning and depth for you. Knowledge will provide you with a lifetime of inspiration.

What is Knowledge?

Knowledge, The Essence of World Scriptures, is a book in a class all its own. It stands head and shoulders above any other scriptural anthology. It points at the very core of every spiritual tradition and reveals its purest intention.

Knowledge does not view “Master comes to planet Earth” as a morality play. The great masters were not here to teach us how to be nice people. Nor were they here to teach us how to excel at worldly activities while in a body.

The great masters were here for a far greater purpose than is taught in any religion today. They were here to reveal the very essence of life to whomever sincerely wanted to know it. And that essence, as they all said, is within us.

It is because of it that we can walk and talk without being plugged into the wall. It is that essence that holds atoms together.  It is the power that pushes the stars in their orbits.

Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Lao Tsu, Socrates and others were here to teach eager students how to turn their senses inward to see for themselves the captivating beauty that outshines all the many incredible beauties of the life outside us.

In every one of us is a light that outshines the sun. In us is endless love. In every one of us is everlasting life. In us is the peace that passes all understanding. The beauty and love in us satisfy our deepest hungers… and the best part is, that in this world of beginnings and endings, comings and goings, what is real within us is constant, always there.

Trees and mountains and oceans and buildings and people and pets all come and go. In us is the only enduring reality. In us is life without death, love without condition, acceptance without judgment, constancy without boredom. In us is a delightfully dynamic, dancing force that makes the heart sing. In us is true inner peace, even when the world is spinning out of control. Knowing how to turn our senses inward and see, hear and feel that life force is Knowledge.

This book about Knowledge is a collection of exquisite quotes from writings throughout the ages and around the world. There is a thread that connects all great traditions, and it is this very pure universal experience.

I hope you will enjoy this beautiful book every day.
