Stories, ideas and concepts of saints, sages, rishis, fakirs. As well as inner teachings and practical techniques that WORK if you apply them!
By Master Stephen Co (from words and teachings of GMCKS):

"A lot of people don’t realize that it’s called ‘the law of karma’ and not for example ‘an opinion of karma’ for a reason. Your opinion, my opinion don’t matter but karma is what it is. What is the third law of Newton? ‘For every action there is a reaction’. So we start to understand that ‘oh, because of this law of karma, the universe works in a cycle’. And as we put other people first, it eventually comes back to us. That’s why St Francis in his prayer says ‘we should not seek to be consoled but to console others first’. And we will be taken care of. Because as the energy flows through us to help others, guess what, we are the ones getting the energy first."

“When you do that part of blessing your projects, you always have to include a project that has nothing to do with you. Something that’s purely going to help someone else that you don’t get any benefit from. You know why? It’s based on the law of karma. Karmically you’re also entitled. It is in giving that you receive.”

“Do not wear crystals when you meditate. Crystals are from the earth and they contain mostly Earth prana. When your body has more spiritual energy, your upper chakras are activated, when you have more lower energies like earth prana, your lower chakras are more activated,. When you hold crystals, the amount of earth energy in your body increases dramatically so what happens? You become more grounded. That means your lower chakras are activated. As the energy pours in, all the chakras get the same amount of energy to a certain extent, but since the lower chakras are bigger, they get more. So after meditation guess what happens. The lower chakras are going to be bigger than the top. So you overheat. You get the insomnia, headache, hypertension; all of it could be prevented by don’t wearing crystals when you meditate.”

“When the body dies, the soul is shedding the physical, the emotional and the mental body. The information, all the lessons learned by the soul are saved in the 3 seeds - in the heart (physical data), solar plexus (emotional data - any emotion ), pineal gland (mental data - any thought). The soul takes the information from these 3 hard drives into the higher world. When it decides to come back, first it brings down these 3 hard drives and the angelic beings open up these 3 blueprints to create the conditions from the previous lifetimes; a new body, a new emotional body, a new mental body. If there is a trauma from a previous lifetime and has not be removed or lessons have not yet been learned, the angelic beings will recreate the trauma in the chakras. What the soul is doing is transferring data from one lifetime to the other. The cord you feel from another lifetime or negative energy, it's not the same as before, but it contains the same information. When this happens, don' t get emotional or upset, it's just leftover data that has not been processed yet. As you deal with it, it goes away, as you get upset it's like throwing kerosene on fire. When you disintegrate cords from previous lifetimes you are disintegrating the negative patterns, that's why the spiritual teachings are so important, because you understand life from the perspective of the soul. Each lifetime is like a day at school for the soul.”

Command Over The Celestial Power

One day while Baba was sitting outside his room, he saw a woman dressed in a red saree standing by his side. The face of the woman was pockmarked. Baba recognized her as none other than Sitala Devi, the demigoddess (celestial being) who is the harbinger of smallpox. Sitala Devi said to Baba, “I want to leave this place.” Both of them remained silent. After some time passed, the goddess stepped in front of Baba. 

Baba reproved her in a very serious tone, “I am here. Do you think I am nothing?” 

The goddess immediately stepped back, pleading, “Will you not allow me to leave this place? Am I to remain imprisoned here?” Baba replied to her, “No, you need not stay here. Just take the route of the lower bank of the river Chawal Baghini. Under no circumstances should you go over the plains where there is human habitation.” 

A few days after this incident a family living on the lower bank of the river experienced a severe attack of smallpox. When they came to Baba and reported the smallpox, Baba inquired about the location of their hut and was informed that it was on the lower bank of the river. Baba advised them to leave the hut immediately and run to a place of safety. They were the only family living on the route which Baba had instructed Sitala Devi to take when she left Baradi. 

This incident demonstrates Baba’s command over celestial beings. Even demigods and goddesses obeyed his command. It should be noted that since that time there has not been any epidemic of smallpox in that area. Every year prior to Baba’s coming to Baradi, however, a virulent outbreak of smallpox had swept the area. The epidemics had often claimed the lives of hundreds, even thousands, of innocent villagers. 

An individual reaching the state of Absolute Brahman enjoys supremacy not only over ordinary mortals, but also over all the demigods and goddesses of the celestial plane. Vijay Krishna Goswami’s vision of all the gods and goddesses in the body of Baba Lokenath also indicates that celestial beings cherish the Presence of one who, in the human body, has achieved the highest state of attainment, the state of Brahman.

Baba’s Cure For Habit And Addiction

(Baba Lokenath; Rajani Brahmachari)

Rajani had the habit of smoking tobacco. One day, he had the urge to smoke tobacco three times while with Baba. Each time, Baba said to him, “What kind of a devotee are you? You don’t even offer me tobacco?” Each time, Rajani prepared tobacco in his own cup and offered it to Baba. Baba then offered the tobacco back to him. Rajani quietly accepted it. Then, as he prepared to leave the room to smoke outside, Baba called to him, “You have to smoke right in front of me.” After this happened three times, Rajani’s lifelong habit of smoking left him forever. Baba, in his inimitable, compassionate and playful way, had helped Rajani rid himself of an unhealthy habit that was interfering with his spiritual growth.

Baba’s guidance of Rajani, though playful and tender, has beautiful layers of meaning, instruction, and hope for anyone struggling with an addiction. The Satguru does not demand that we bring only our best, complete sacrifices to the altar of his presence. He asks for ALL that we are, good and bad, strong and incorrigibly weak. Baba tells us, through Rajani, that we must never allow our faults, or our guilt and shame for having them, to keep us away from the altar of the Divine, even for an instant. Instead, we are to bring our most stubborn self-indulgences to him, in the very instant of our failure to control them — again and again, if we have to — until we are healed by his grace. There is no sin so great, no weakness so entrenched, that the Satguru cannot and will not heal in those who remain lovingly in his Presence.

Baba Lokenath

From his state of Supreme Divinity, Baba declared, “The One is everywhere. There is no second. Who will show kindness to whom? Have you ever seen a person in this world who is kind to himself? I do not find the existence of anything other than Me in this entire creation. I have traveled in the hills and mountains, in the jungles and forests, all over the world, but could only see Myself. You will not understand why I love you all so much, why I am sharing your miseries and unhappiness.”

The ingrained seeds of karma work themselves out through a natural process and, eventually, the thirst for the pleasure diminishes. As the seeker passes through stages of cause and effect, experiencing the inner and outer consequences of attachment, the need to awaken to higher truths asserts itself. The longing gradually becomes paramount for deeper peace and harmony than is available through material desire and its fulfillment. Through the Grace of God and Guru, the seeker’s determination to give up the unwanted desires becomes resolute. Her/his efforts become more powerful and single-pointed. They draw the Guru’s grace to be able to rise above the karma. This is exactly what happened in Lokenath’s case. Guru Bhagwan remained a witness to Lokenath’s process, allowing and guiding it until the disciple exhausted the seeds of karma through his own efforts. 

One need not feel that the young girl was abandoned by Lokenath after their karma together was burned. Just as Lokenath had to work out his karma, the girl also had to realize that any relationship with a renounced monk was against the norm of their society. It would only have led to more unhappiness in her life. She received Lokenath’s company and friendship as long as the debts on both sides were being paid. In Hindu society of the Eighteenth Century, widows had to lead a life of renunciation, following a vegetarian diet, and strictly observing celibacy. Love and devotion to God were their only comfort. The company of Lokenath ultimately inspired the God-seed in her. Lokenath moved ahead on the path of truth as a wandering mendicant. The woman, transformed by the touch of a sannyasin, offered her life to the Divine to reach the state of desirelessness.

Baba Lokenath:

“It was my fate that my Guru brought me to a place where a young widow lived. Guru would often go away from the place where we lived. That gave me the chance to spend time with that young girl and have a lot of fun. This went on for a period of almost three years. Gradually, my urge in that area of life began to diminish. Suddenly I had the deep thought ‘What am I doing? Have I renounced my parents and home and come with this Holy Master for all these trifles?’ I felt a deep sense of frustration. I started requesting of my Guru that we move to another place without further delay. For quite a few days, he paid a deaf ear to my requests. Later, he intentionally delayed the move by saying, ‘ We will go tomorrow.’ My deep urge to leave the place increased. When I became adamant and strong in my decision, Gurudev pretended to be sick.

“One day I felt an uncontrollable urge to leave. In a harsh manner, I said, ‘I cannot stay here for another moment.’ Guru said, ‘I am feeling very sick, we will stay here for two more days.’ Blind with anger, I took a big stick in my hand and ran towards my Guru saying, ‘Whenever you move in the village, or beg alms, or even cook for us, you don’t feel sick. But the moment I say, ‘Let us move from this place,’ you start feeling ill. Today I will kill you and kill myself too.’ My old Master ran away, but soon returned and said, ‘Let’s go, now it has happened.’

”When we started moving out of the village, I asked Gurudev, ‘All these days you did not care what I said. Why did you listen to me today?’ My Guru said, ‘You never said it the way you did it today, my child. You had given up pleasures but the pleasures and the attachments did not give you up. Today it has happened.’”

This important statement by Guru Bhagwan needs deep contemplation. It is extremely common for all human beings to realize that our attachments lead to unhappiness in our lives. People at all levels of sadhana struggle to give up myriad habits, which they know cause pain for themselves and others, and which obstruct the internal peace which is the foundation of real spiritual progress. Most often, even though the habit is given up, it returns — sometimes more vigorously. In spite of the firmest resolutions, even yogis in a high state of achievement fall. Until one is fully and naturally established in the state of egolessness and desirelessness, many possibilities to fall are open. That is why the Upanishads (the Vedas) liken the path of spirituality to one of walking on a razor’s edge. The Bhagavad Gita tells us that this illusive Maya is insurmountable without the Grace of God and Guru.

Guru Bhagwan’s wisdom in allowing Lokenath the time to fully release his karma reminds us that it is not enough to just give up anything that appears to cause us pain and unhappiness. The tendencies that manifest in the mind are rooted in the seeds of karma that the soul carried to this body. As circumstances and situations become more and more provocative, the inner, dormant tendencies of desire awaken. They stretch out their tentacles to draw the object of pleasure within reach until the desire is fulfilled. As the desires are again and again quenched the thirst increases, beginning the cycle again.

Once, when I was driving after midnight, I approached a mountain. As I drove toward it, I saw that almost half the mountain was ablaze! I am not known to shy away from danger, so I continued to drive. But I was cautious, because I knew I was in a car full of flammable fuel and I had my little girl in the backseat. It was misty and the farther I drove up the mountain, the fire always seemed to be a little farther away. Then I realized that although all the terrain that I saw from down below looked like it was on fire, as I drove into it, there was nothing at all.

When I reached the actual site of the fire, I saw that a truck had broken down. The driver and a couple of others had built a small fire for themselves because of the cold. As the mist reached dew point, the million droplets in the air, each one acting as a prism, created such a phenomenal illusion that a little fire seemed like a major conflagration. From down below, it looked like the whole mountain was aflame! That incident left me astounded.

Creation is just like that, hugely magnified. Those who have looked within themselves closely and attentively realized there was no need to look at the macro version. The entire cosmos is just a magnified projection of a little occurrence happening within you—the play of five elements. This is all it takes to make a throbbing full-fledged human being!
