In Anaam Lok it is called the state of the eternal mercy. Without it there is no compassion, there is no grace and it’s in that state the unutterable Naam (sp?) or sound is made audible for man for the first time and from that state descends light, coming down like a golden rain causing creation to begin. In the first expression of creation is Beingness acting on Beingness, then the next level down is Beingness acting on Consciousness. The third level down is Consciousness acting on Consciousness. The fourth level down is Consciousness acting on Energy. The fifth level down is Energy acting on Energy. The sixth level down is Consciousness acting on Matter. The seventh level down is Energy acting on Matter and the final level down is where we are, Matter acting on Matter. Do you see where you are in creation? But Anaam Lok, the eternal mercy, is the pure cosmic audible sound. It is the God process. You call it the Logos or your call it the Amen, whatever name you want to call it, but it’s the audible Life Current. This life, Creative Intelligence, that is audible for the first time and it’s heard, not seen. The only level you can see it is when it starts to radiate down as light.

Audience: (inaudible)… interesting point that I’ve never heard before about God the creative light having a form like ours. He said that beyond light (inaudible)… he couldn’t explain it either (inaudible)… call it pure Spirit and there is something beyond that even and it really threw some of us because (inaudible)… involved with this light, we’ve got it made. It might take several lifetimes.
Adano: I said before, remember the words are very specific, “No man has seen his God, but has seen His Light.” Now I’ll tell you something else which is entirely different to what I’ve said, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word IS God and the Word was made flesh and dwelt in Man.” That’s a big difference than the light. He did not say the light is God. “No man has seen God, but His light” and I’m saying now that the Word is God, the Audible Life Current, the Shabda or the Holy Name or Cosmic Sound, the Divine Presence is God. That is heard, not seen, big difference. One has to hear God, one may not see God, but see His light. So the sound precedes the light, but God is all music, that’s why It’s beyond the light. What is beyond the light is this cosmic sound that is responsible for the light being existing. In the highest state of awareness, Anaam Loka (sp?), where Man fully sees God as himself, there He is the eternal sound vibrating. 1:24 In Anam Lok it is called the state of the eternal mercy.

Now in terms of intimacy in that pure light, you will still have to look at a human being, which is yourself, see? God, though He is impersonal and though He is permeating you and you a human being, will hanker or yearn for intimacy, you see? So it is nothing wrong to accept the form of human being, it is not degrading you. In fact, it is extending your comprehension of yourself to see that God is recognizable in human form as a ideal way to relate. It’s unimportant if one chooses Jesus, Mohammed, or Buddha, or anyone, the important thing is all these eventually say, “I and my Father are one.” When it happened to Kabir, Kabir was a Saint who lived many years ago and He had studied all the various religions in the world at the time. He embraced them all. Finally when the final devotion came for Him to practice devotion, one day He woke up out of His meditation and shouted, “I am He! I am He!” And he ran through the marketplace shouting, “I am He!” And they all thought He was crazy. Then one priest says, “Yes, me too.” (Laughter from audience). And this is true, the final realization is the “I am He.” We’re understanding it deeper everyday that realization of God is looking at your higher self and don’t be afraid of it.

They had to have some relationship, some thing to relate to. So Moses had to come down another level. He had to meet the people at a level that they could communicate with. So he said Yehovah, the Lord. Yet it shows that even they who lived so long in captivity, could not accept Yehovah / Lord. Even when they were lead out of the captivity, they had to latch on some other form to build up devotion. While Moses was up in the mountain trying to bring down more consciousness, the people then chose a form that was obvious. They melted down all the gold and made themselves a golden calf, a form to relate to, because they so ingrained in their captivity to some form. Finally, when it was all smashed up and the forms were all destroyed, they had to face themselves. So the very first commandment is, “Thou shall have no other gods or graven image before Me.” Me who? Me, Light, the Cosmic Principle, the Creative Intelligence. So the final résumé is that when you look inside yourself as a human being devoid of every religious heritage, since some of us don’t want to be affiliated with religious heritages anymore, we want to look at ourselves as Human Beings (Adano emphasizes these words), then we have to look at ourselves in the atomic nature now for the first time. We have to accept our atomic structure. If we accept it then we will see ourselves as pure light.

You are made in the image of that light and if you look at your image, your true self is for the first time looking at yourself, then you can say without doubt, “I and my Father are one.” That is the ideal image in the end. Now the Hebrew and many Hindus start off worshipping God as Light, finally coming to the full realization and shouting to the top of their head, “I and my Father are one.” Eventually Moses had to experience that. Moses said he saw a burning bush. What is a burning bush? It’s a light. This is the only symbology they could relate. He closed his eyes and saw this light burning from here in the Arjuna center, or the third eye center, and as he saw the light inside he constantly meditated upon it. As he meditated upon that, which you call Mount Sinai, it’s the mountain here, as he looked inside within his own consciousness and the light became brighter and brighter, then he said, “Who are thee Lord? What is Your name?” And the voice came back from his own inner being saying, “I am that I am.” You and I are the one in other words, I am you and you are me. You are light and I am light. We are all light. If you are seeing this you are seeing the light. Now it’s difficult for Moses to go down and tell the people in captivity that the God name is “I am.” They would not accept that because they did not have the inner experience that their own God self was functioning in them.

Volume 3 Satsang SatGuru – 1965 – 2:01

But I never saw the Master. I meditated for years after that, I never saw Him in any other astral form. He never came to me in an astral form. He only came once. The day He died, or He left the body, I was going home and I arrived there was a telegram and I opened the telegram and I read He just passed away. Well, there I’m going to show you human recriminations. I started to swear and I kick up the floor, I says, “What a damn food I was, I should have gone and seen the man while He was in a human body. You need to see the Sat Guru in the human body. You must have human contact.” And here I’m going through exactly the rigmarole, talk of the same thing, “I should have gone, I lost… what have I gained? I’ve only got a few inner experiences and building my consciousness here.” The thing that was more important now was to see that human body. See how human form wants human form? A lion needs a bigger lion to look up to. I need to go and see. Deep down there was something still missing, I should have gone and seen. No sooner I had said that I felt my eyes close down and I heard like a huge voice say, “Who is dead? I am alive! You know it all.” Like that I knew He was lifting off karma from my mechanism like mad and I can see all these things moving in consciousness. From that day on I knew the whole course of the SRF without even looking at it and I didn’t even read the balance. The thing had worked, what I wanted most to know about. I wanted His blessings from that realm without having to go and say, “I was touching human form and satisfying human form.” I wanted to know that really, divinity was working from any level, from any time and space, it could reach out to man and touch him. In other words, I was trying to really appreciate His existence in California which I called “the podium of the church,” and Canada where I was living, “pew 93 at the back of the church.” And all of the Masters were (inaudible) above me and I’m sitting back here trying to peek through the clouds to see where the Guru is, but at last I can feel that light coming down was enough for me because this was how I had already accepted the Guru consciousness. I was no longer looking for physical form no more.

The light is there and the Light is shining in the Darkness. That means God’s Light, which is His true nature, is already shining within you, the darkness of the brain, “and the darkness comprehends it not.” The five senses does not understand why there should be light in the brain, but if you doubt in your mind that there’s any light in your brain, it’s very easy to convince yourself by giving you a karate chop on the nostril and you see the light pretty fast. (Laughter from audience.) So that is the evidence on a physical level that light is there. “But let your light so shine before men that they may see the good works now and glorify the Father which is in thee.” The Father in thee is the light, the total structure of this mechanism. On a conscious level when you close your eyes you see some vague movement of a light or a color in there, not conscious of what it represent, you pay no attention to it. When the mind is steady enough to look at it objectively without fear, then you and the light become one. Now if you and the light become one, what would be obvious picture you would see in the end? You will see yourself. You are made in the image of that light and if you look at your image, your true self is for the first time looking at yourself, then you can say without doubt, “I and my Father are one.” That is the ideal image in the end. Now the Hebrew and many Hindus start off worshipping God as Light, finally coming to the full realization and shouting to the top of their head, “I and my Father are one.”

Remember this, a great many people are going to be protected by their own prayers and their love for Jesus too you know. A great many are gonna be protected in their prayers by their love for Mohammed too and a great deal are going to be protected in their prayers by their love for Buddha too and the Initiate is gonna be protected by the whole shebang… 0:53 Alright, this is what we are trying to show, that the Initiate under his moment of stress is still protected… 0:55 We are born in a certain area to fulfill or work out certain karmic debts with certain individuals and even if the cataclysms are falling on our heads by the thousands every minute, if it’s not for you to go that way, you will be protected by the Masters. Do you understand now? It has to do with the karmic conditions.
Audience: (inaudible) protect all sorts of people who are not Initiates?
Adano: Yes because their karma is involved in it (inaudible)… 0:58 So if you are in a sense trusting in the Divine survival nature of your being, you will be protected even if you’re not an Initiate… 0:59 Anyway for a little consolation as a non-Initiate, let me put it this way, you would not be a human being in your present body form if you didn’t deserve to be here because you’re the only sperm that became you, you see?

Audience: Swami you mentioned to meditation upon a form of God that you hold dear. You mentioned the Christians have Christ, the Hindus have Krishna, etc. What form of God should a person of the Jewish faith meditate upon, which holds God as formless?
Adano: If you go back to the Talmud, it tells you, “no man has seen God but His…” What? Light. Man has seen the Light of God. Now in the early days when they were carrying the Ark and around the Ark they saw a light like a cloud surrounding the Ark and that was to tell the people that God was present. Now the Hindus also believed just like the Hebrew people, some of them don’t want any form of God, but they all admit whoever they are, the formless God is Light. Now let’s look at the man Jesus. He tried to remove the glorification of His body by saying, “When thine eyes are single, your whole body is full of light.” Meditation is to focus the eyes or to steady the mind in order to see light. Einstein comes along and says, “This is light! Atomic energy, matter.” Matter is equal to the mass times the velocity of light squared. Energy is it… energy is equal to this mass times the velocity of light squared, light, atomic light. So when you close your eyes, light is there. Now Jesus is giving us the indication of what is happening inside. If you don’t want the form and when you see your Higher Self, you will see light. This form is there too.

Whatever they will do on a physical level, they can do on an extrasensory level. It’s all locked up in there. The same body odor that is (gap in tape)… reverse action of devotion. Now if you are in a state of anger or tension, they say the body odor is very foul, right? You know those advertisement, the only reason you need Ban is because you got tension, and that’s a body odor deodorant you know? Alright, it’s because you have tension. No tension, how would the body odor be? It should be sweet, clean. If there is no impurities in this mechanism as a human being, the glandular system will secrete the opposite, just as much as your endocrine system will secrete certain chemicals to generate hostility, they can now secrete chemicals to generate opposite of hostility. The saliva is the same. If you know that this person is injured and you can concentrate and release the saliva, you can do something with it. It has a certain magnetic charge that will work.
