If there are any questions you want to ask, I’d be glad to answer them now. Yes.
Audience: I want to ask about the picture.
Adano: Alright. In 1963 there was in Yucatan a church and the people there were praying on a Good Friday and they reasoned like everyone else if Thomas can see the body of Jesus and if the body of Jesus is genuine, why can they not see it themselves since He didn’t go anyplace but remain here in the universal creation. And the priest was very factual too since he was dealing with very factual people. He said, “If you have the devotion, He will come.” So they decided to whump up a good devotion that Sunday, or that Good Friday, and they worked at it, they worked at it and to their amazement there was a light right in the middle of the church and there stood the Master fully from head to toe and there was a German man, a baron I understood, he and his son was in the church at the time and the son had a camera and he snapped the picture. Now the original picture is about this size. I was fortunate to get the enlargement through a friend that knew them all the way so I have a copy of it, but this is a fulfillment again of a very greed wish. You see years ago I did not want to keep a picture of the Master because it was painted by other human beings. I didn’t want to carry a painting let alone be attached to it. The only painting that did some stirrings in my heart was the head of Hofmann, but I never latched on to one. I always wanted to know if it’s possible to have a photograph and I seen even photographs where the apparent face of Jesus was on the snow and some Chinese newspaper fellow during the war had photographed it, this face appearing in the snow. Even some artists, an aviator in fact, who was flying in the air and saw this light and photographed it and it turned out to be the face of Jesus. Even that I didn’t consider worth to carry, but when this came my way I says, “Now you keep your big mouth shut.” So I have to live with it. Yes?

I remember reading one time Abraham Lincoln saying, “I would like at least to see one human being” and when looking out over the White House, a man was passing just about that time along the walkway. No one knew who he was but it later turned out, at that time when Lincoln said it, the man was Walt Whitman walking past the White House. Those who have read The Leaves of Grass know that Mr. Whitman was in a full state of Cosmic Consciousness. He lived and died in this country a marvelous human being and he said, “I go on and I hope that the great Saints and Sages will look down upon me and think if I am worthy to be among Them.” He also realized what it is to be one with the Spirit. He involved himself in his writing. Wherever you involve yourself after you identify with the Spirit, this would your great contribution to the world around you no matter what it is.

I said before, the ideal of all beliefs all bring you to the same experience oneness with the Spirit, but that is where our journey begins, it does not end there. Devotion begins now to have value when you are one with the Spirit. Many of us think that after our ideal has brought us to oneness with the Spirit, the job is over. No, the job is not over, the job has now begun for Man. Man has to involve himself with his fellow Man on a global nature, on a universal nature. He has to work with this oneness of the Spirit. It is only by taking up the greater commitment, the greater challenge of life, that the oneness of Spirit has meaning. If when Jesus or Buddha and all these men found the oneness of the Spirit in themselves and remained in the mountain caves, isolated themselves from society, would you know of them? Would you ever hear of them? Not possible. It is only because they took upon themselves to get involved on a global nature, a universal nature, that their impact had value. Each one of us is moving towards that identification of the Spirit and when that occurs in all of us then each one of us from that time must get involved. The Spirit will have to move you forward to be involved with others. This is the challenge and this is the greater realization, the involvement with Mankind as a whole. We don’t know how this involvement will affect society in years to come, but since we are accepting that this is going be the Aquarian Age, an age of unfoldment, an age of enlightenment, it is the age of participation, as we become identified with the Spirit, we are going to be forced to demonstrate the Spirit by being human beings for the first time and respecting another human being and within your own consciousness you can say of all the marvels that you have seen, there is nothing to compare with a human being because the true human being is one with the Spirit. He is devoid of all dross, devoid of all negativeness, all impurities.

The waves were crashing in on the little ship that the disciples were living in or fishing and when they were in a state of panic, they called upon their Ideal. Why? Because they were afraid and even when the Master awoke and look, what did He say? “Peace, be still.” The power of realization when fully precipitated into the body is peace. This is true realization based on devotion. Thank you. (Five minute break).

Yogananda had the same type of experience. He searched by looking into the sky everywhere for the ideal form. He loved Jesus, He loved Buddha, and all of them, and He kept searching for the form, maintaining His devotion. Finally when the true experience came and the Light broke open upon Him, this is what He heard within the Light, “Hello playmate, you and I are one.” There was no more fear. The realization brought to Him now out of the devotion, the reality about Himself. Jesus accepted it. He came back, He told Man that this is what Man has to face. “I and the Father are one. You see me, you see the Father.” Look at yourself and when you get the realization based upon the devotion, you will notice beyond all doubt and that you are free. Now don’t judge yourself after the realization come that you may be incompetent of performing miracles, that is not what is intended. The true realization of yourself based upon devotion is peace, peace that passes all understanding. The magnitude of this peace you couldn’t begin to comprehend it, even if you try. There is no way to relate this peace. In the most difficult moments of your life when everything is crashing around you, this peace seems to sustain you. Even if you have the power to stop the ocean, stop a mad elephant in its track, or stop a train in its track, still this peace would supersede it and you would have to use the word, “Peace, be still.”

Each one of you would now see yourself identified in God and that is the realization. The realization that is based on devotion and accepting some ideal as a guideline. It simplifies for many people who are caught up in the conflict of what to do to realize themselves. When we remove the conflicts that impede us in realizing our cells and take an ideal simply on the foundation of love, we will then realize our own cells immersed in that truth. There was a Catholic Saint by the name of Catherine. She started out her meditations and her devotions not wanting to see anything but the true form of God. At first I said, “Here I have found someone like me.” I read and I read and I read and then when she has seen all these different forms and she kept pushing them away more and more, till she reached what is called the “nightmare of the soul” or the “dark night of the soul.” One day, just about dawn, she had the experience of seeing Catherine herself in the Light. She could not understand why she was looking at her own self. She thought she had an out of body experience and this Consciousness said and related to her, “You and I are one.” “No, no, no, no, this is too much” and she tried to shut it out, but as every time she shut it out, the form was there. Finally she broke down in the devotion and accepted that when the Lord wants you to see the truth about yourself, there is nothing you can do but accept.

Jesus told his disciples, “Call no man Master save the Lord that is within thee. Therefore I call you no longer my disciples, but my friends.” He too would not want you, at the highest point of realization, to accept His physical form as a limitation upon yourself, but He would feel honored if you used His image as a guideline towards your own realization founded on the devotion within yourself. I heard one time a great doctor, his name was Doctor Cooley, the second best, they may call him the best today in heart surgery, he was a student of another doctor who was the leading specialist in Texas and he made this statement, he said, “If you want to be the best, imitate the next best and when you have imitated it long enough, try to originate.” What is he saying? He is saying identically the same thing. Start out with the ideal, work to the point when you and the principle become one. You are projecting for yourself. Jesus said the same thing, “As many as received Him” as many would accept the Ideal, to them gave He the devotion or the power to stick with it. You have to stick with it inside and each one of us will become identified in the Creative Principle, Sons of God.

This is true. You take the ideal be it Jesus or any one of the great Teachers and go all the way in relating, loving, they will meet you all the way to the highest point when you break the illusion and you will see that that ideal is there and the lesson you will learn from the ideal is “God and the Ideal are one.” When Jesus said, “I and my Father are one” He spoke the highest realization founded on devotion. When you see yourself within the Divinity and see yourself as the Divinity, now that is the ideal form. You have come to that realization based upon your devotion. The form of a great Sage or Saint helps you to raise your devotion to be like the Saint, then eventually you and this Creative Principle must become one. You and the Father must become one. The devotion must culminate in this final realization that you and the Father are one.

Now while you’re watching inside the light will start to manifest inside and as you watch the light now, you don’t tell the light anything. So what you’re really doing inside is like this: “From TV station JOY, program LOVE is coming in to SOUL in the form of LIGHTSOUND.”

It’s like the three men had three talons given to them, one had five, one had two, or whatever it is, and they all went out and applied. Well what did the third one do with his? He hid it so what was it worth to him then? Was their any worthiness in him? If he himself don’t consider himself worthy enough to apply himself, the being who gave him or the person who gave him something, isn’t it likely to take it back from him? You’re wasting the thing. In other words, whatever you are worth in whatever you estimate yourself, the highest estimate you place on yourself is Soul, you see? If you place yourself the highest estimate, it is not ego now, that you are Soul, then you’re going to realize it in this life form. The effort is not wasted. The effort is going to come off now. You’re going to see it because every action that you perform now is Will of God. Guru, though the Guru or the contact with the Gurus, you are doing Their will, which is you are meditating to discover yourself. You’re accepting the challenge.
