    Visions of Primordial Light: “The Light of Christ is noetic Light, and blessed is the soul which is accounted worthy to see it.” (Saint Isaac the Syrian)


    Meet the “great grandchildren” of Saint Thomas, Apostle of the East. No doubt this is one of the few programs on radio that has ever explored this little-known tradition of antiquity. Hear Aramaic chant along with readings from the Syriac Mystics of Eastern Christianity (Persian Gulf/Iraq/Syria, India) and another installment of my conversation with Syriac scholar Sebastian Brock of Oxford. We discuss another “Nag Hammadi-like”, “Philokalia-like”, “Dead Sea Scrolls-like” collection — an anthology of the sacred texts and wisdom of an ancient spiritual community of the Middle East/Near East with its own rich contemplative heritage of Gnosis and mysticism. We talk about Saint Isaac the Syrian, the Thomas tradition and writings, including the Gospel of Thomas, Acts of Thomas, and Manichaean Psalms of Thomas, the Jesus Sutras found in China, and various translations of Syriac mystical texts that have appeared in English.


    “The rays of primordial Light that illumine purified souls with spiritual knowledge not only fill them with benediction and luminosity; they also, by means of the contemplation of the inner essences of created things, lead them up to the noetic heavens. The effects of the divine energy, however, do not stop here; they continue until through wisdom and through knowledge of indescribable things they unite purified souls with the One, bringing them out of a state of multiplicity into a state of oneness in Him.” (Philokalia)


    “The one who possesses noetic Light has no need of visible light. Now the Light of the mind, they say, is the knowledge of the truth, whereby the soul can distinguish the truth from similitudes. The one who has found this, has found a Treasury of Life.” (Book of Grace, Saint Isaac the Syrian)


    Create eyes in me, and so may I see with Your eyes,
    for I cannot see with my own eyes.


    May my mind travel inwards
    towards the hiddenness of Your sacrifice,
    just as You have travelled out into the open
    and been cojoined to Your Mysteries.


    At this moment
    may I be totally forgetful of myself,
    and remain utterly unmindful
    of my own person.


    May every bodily image
    be wiped away from my mind’s Eye,
    and may You alone
    be depicted before the Eye of my mind.


    And now, when Your Spirit descends from heaven
    upon your Mysteries,
    may I ascend in spirit from earth to heaven.


    — Prayers of Joseph the Visionary, “The Syriac Fathers On Prayer And The Spiritual Life,” translated from the original Syriac-Aramaic by Sebastian Brock, Cistercian Publications

In the lotus feet of the Beloved he sees
his true destination.

    During this radio satsang hear various musically accompanied readings from the mystic poetry or prose of various Masters and scriptures of India about Inner Light and Sound meditation practice — the inward journey of the soul to the heavens within, the inner regions, Kingdom of God within you. “According to Sant Mat, having crossed these realms or levels, we achieve the final goal called Mukti (i.e. salvation). To attain liberation, Sant Mat does not follow numerous complicated practices, but two essential methods: 1) Drishti Marg (i.e. the Path of Inner Light/Transcendental Seeing/Vision) and, 2) Shabd Marg (i.e. the Way of Inner Sound/Transcendental Hearing). Unlike other worship methods popular in religions and sects with different names, these two methods are not man-made. God himself is the founder and operator of these methods. Since the beginning God has kept these two methods inside human beings with full qualifications. The way of redemption of jivas (i.e. bounded souls) is available within all human beings.” (Baba Devi Sahab, Sant Mat Tradition of India)

    There are some examples of visionary literature in the Dead Sea Scrolls, various descriptions of things going on in the heavens. The Mandaean texts seem to be a continuation of that visionary tradition of Light-mysticism and Ascension-mysticism. In my view the Mandaean scriptures probably represent the most heavenly or otherworldly documents of the west, brimming with out-of-this-world visions of God, descriptions of the heavens, souls, angels, and life after death. They speak directly to both the heart and soul of the reader through hymns and prayers of incredible beauty. The Nag Hammadi Library represents the prose of the Gnostics, but the Mandaean scriptures are the poetry. (James Bean, Spiritual Awakening Radio)

    ** Stephan Hoeller of Ecclesia Gnostica in Los Angeles and the Gnosis.org website is “an author and scholar of Gnosticism and Jungian psychology, Hoeller is Regionary Bishop of Ecclesia Gnostica, and the senior holder of the English Gnostic transmission in America.”  “He has continued to serve as bishop of the Ecclesia Gnostica for over four decades.”  “Stephan A. Hoeller (November 27, 1931) is an American author and scholar. He was born in Budapest, Hungary into a family of Austro-Hungarian nobility. Exiled from his native country as the result of the communist rule subsequent to World War II, he studied in various academic institutions in Austria, Belgium, and Italy. In 1952 he immigrated to the United States and has resided in Southern California ever since.”  (Wikipedia)


    Books authored by Stephan Hoeller:


    Gnosticism: New Light on the Ancient Tradition of Inner Knowing:


    There has long been need for a comprehensive introductory guide to the Gnostic tradition.  Hoeller supplies just such a book with this new offering.  This delightful study gives clear voice to the essential message of Gnosticism, and   supplies an invaluable introduction to the history and import of Gnosticism in the Western tradition.


    Jung and the Lost Gospels:


    With a psychological perspective drawn from the work of C. G. Jung, this book provides an excellent introduction to Gnosticism and its relationship to the spiritual quest of our own age. Several key mythic motifs of Gnosticism are explored both in a religious and psychological context.


    The Gnostic Jung and the Seven Sermons to the Dead:


    This widely acclaimed and influential book was the first to fully explore the Gnostic underpinnings of C. G. Jung’s personal vision and psychology.  It is “must reading” for anyone with interests in Jung, depth psychology, and Gnosticism.


    The Fool’s Pilgrimage: Kabbalistic Meditations on the Tarot:


    Just released in a beautiful new edition after thirty years in print, this is truly a classic! (Note that the title of the first edition was slightly different: The Royal Road: A Manual of Kabalistic Meditations on the Tarot.)  This little book provides an excellent introduction both to Kabbalah and to the use of Tarot imagery in guided meditations upon the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. You will find few better introductions to Tarot or Kabbalah. Also included with this fine new edition is a CD with the author reading the Meditations.


    The Fall of Sophia: A Gnostic Text on the Redemption of Universal Consciousness by Violet MacDermot with a commentary by  Stephan A. Hoeller:


    This is a valuable new translation of the Pistis Sophia by Violet MacDermot, who also served as one of the original translators of the Nag Hammadi collection.  Stephan Hoeller provides an introduction to the text, helping place this important Gnostic scripture in context.  Highly recommended.  (Pistis Sophia, the traditional title of this text, is taken from “the Books of the Savior” contained in the Askew codex).


    Freedom:  Alchemy for a Voluntary Society:


    Hoeller examines the psychology of tyranny, and the contrasting Puritanical and Hermetic roots of American society. The book suggests that in the Hermetic underpinnings of Western culture, we find a longing for freedom much like that of ancient Gnosticism.

PortraitSant Mat Spirituality and Meditation @ Tumblr: Bhakti (Love) of the Inner Light and Sound of God – This Living School of Spirituality (Mysticism and Gnosticism) from INDIA called Sant Mat is also known as the Way of the Saints, Radhasoami (Ra-dha-Swam-i), and, the Path of the Masters.

The meditation practice is Surat Shabd Yoga, meaning: Union (Yoga) of the Attention of the Soul (Surat) with the Inner Light and Sound of God (Shabd). This practice is also very "out-of-body" as in soul travel. – James

Seven Things I Believe (and Experience)

*1) God is Real.

*2) God is Love, the Ocean of Love and Compassion.

*3) All of the world scriptures teach about the same manifestation of God as inner mystical Light and Sound.

*4) Our true identity is soul, the Self. Soul is part of God and therefore is, like God, pure love.

*5) During this human existence we have an opportunity to experience God.

*6) As we experience communing with God’s love during meditation – Surat Shabd Yoga, we can rise above body-consciousness and explore Inner Space, the “Kingdom of the Heavens” that are within us. “We travel back from the realm of Darkness to the realm of Light, from the Light to divine Sound, and from the realm of Sound to the Soundless State.” (Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj) The drop merges back into the Ocean of Love.

*7) As we get initiated into the Mysteries of the Spirit by a Living Teacher (Sant Satguru), the purpose of our life is fulfilled. Reuniting with God is our reason to be here: “It was for the sake of the God-conscious beings that our True Lord created this earth, and began this play of death and birth.” (Adi Granth) Kabir said, “For millions of years you have slept. This morning, will you not wake?”

"All beautiful forms and tones of this world are mere reflections of some aspect of that ultimate Love-Music of the Great Creative Word. Within the vast complex of creation, each individual spirit is himself/herself a spark of that Eternal Song of Love."

"There are those who have wandered among the darting comets and the shimmering orbs of sounding fire. The soul-explorer is not alone, for there are those who have traveled the highways of the inner cosmos; far more than one may at first realize."

"...The planes of heaven are about us everywhere. One has only to know this simple truth consciously, and then we will be free." (George Arnsby Jones)
