Freedom of the Airwaves: It’s unhealthy in a democracy for the media, including radio, to be dominated by one or two religious voices, as if they are the only ones that exist and no other faith community or point-of-view matters. If the religion/spirituality section of a bookstore was like the radio airwaves are in most places, only one or two books would be found there. The shelves would be mostly bare, covered in dust. No longer being content with the empty silence, I began recording my own programs. 


“There is only one time when it is essential to awaken. That time is now.” (Buddha) 


Mission Statement: ‘There’s not just one religion — there are thousands. After years of being concerned that too few voices, too few points of view were getting heard when it comes to spiritual paths and world religions — that the radio airwaves were not reflecting the diversity that really exists — I started producing my own programs, exploring the world of spirituality, comparative religion, meditation, mysticism, vegetarianism, the vegan diet, and books, bringing to the airwaves the gentle voices of Saints, the Wisdom of Masters or Mystics, world scriptures, sacred texts, the great spiritual traditions and classics of the East & the West.’

PODCAST: Vegetarian Quotes from the World Religions, Part One: Evidence That Jesus and The Original Aramaic Christians Were Vegetarians — Spiritual Awakening Radio — GO TO: http://SpiritualAwakeningRadio.Tumblr.com/post/62004763540/podcast-evidence-that-jesus-and-the-original

Vegetarian Saying of Jesus from the Aramaic New Testament: “Be on guard, so that your hearts do not become heavy with the eating of flesh and with the intoxication of wine and with the anxiety of the world, and that day come upon you suddenly; for as a snare it will come upon all who dwell upon the surface of the earth.” (Luke 21:34, Evangelion Da-Mepharreshe—Old Syriac-Aramaic Manuscript of the New Testament Gospels)

The first followers of Jesus, also known as Ebionites or Nazoreans, were not only kosher, but also strictly adhered to a vegetarian diet. The largest surviving collection of Ebionite scriptures is the Clementine Homilies and the Recognitions of Clement, which are vegetarian gospels that condemn animal sacrifice in any form. For example, the Book of Homilies states that God does not want animals killed at all (3.45), and condemns those who eat meat (7.4, 7.8). The original Christians were called “Ebionites”, a word derived from Hebrew meaning “The Poor.” They traced their vow of poverty back to the first Christian community described in the New Testament Acts of the Apostles (4:32-35), and were a spiritual or intentional community that shared all of their possessions in common. The passages below also show that the Ebionites’ diet was vegan – plant-based (no eggs, no dairy, and no animal products).

Jesus had a brother. He’s referred to by scholars and historians as “James the Just”. According to a wide variety of sources, James became Jesus’s spiritual successor, the next leader of this group, referred to as the “Hebrew Christians” or “Ebionites”. James was the leader and head-apostle of this group for a far longer period of time than Jesus in fact. The well-known Dead Sea Scrolls scholar Robert Eisenman wrote a one thousand page book about him called, James the Just, The Key to Unlocking the Secrets of Early Christianity and the Dead Sea Scrolls. The first words on the back cover of this book are: “James was a vegetarian.”

Peter said, “I live on olives and bread, to which I rarely only add vegetables.” (Clementine Homilies 12,6; also see, Recognitions 7,6)

“And happiness is found in the practice of virtue. Accordingly, the Apostle Matthew partook of seeds, and nuts, hard-shelled fruits, and vegetables, without flesh.” (Clement of Alexandria, The Instructor, Book 2, Chapter 1)

“John never ate meat.” (Church historian Hegesipp according to Eusebius, History of the Church II 2:3)

“James, the brother of the Lord, lived on seeds and plants and touched neither meat nor wine.” (Epistulae ad Faustum XXII, 3)

“Listen in deep silence. Be very still and open your mind. Go past all the raucous shrieks and sick imaginings that cover your real thoughts and obscure your eternal link with God. Sink deep into the peace that waits for you beyond the frantic, riotous thoughts and sights and sounds of this insane world. You do not live here. We are trying to reach your real home. We are trying to reach the place where you are truly welcome. We are trying to reach God.” (ACIM, Workbook For Students, from Lesson 49)


“There is a Light that this world cannot give…. This Light will attract you as nothing in this world can do. In shining peace within you is the perfect purity in which you were created. Fear not to look upon the lovely truth in you. Look past darkness to the holy place where you will see the Light.” (Text, A Course In Miracles)


“Your Voice reminds me of an Ancient Song
It was forgotten. Now I hear it again
A Word I thought had been forever dead.
(The Gifts of God)


“Homeless are they
Who would abide alone, apart from Me.
Yet would I call them home. My Voice I send
To sing in soundless places. Hear from Me
The Song a Father sings to you, His child;
A Melody from far beyond the world.
Step back and listen, for He comes to bless
And tell you that you are not
comfortless.


“I walk in stillness. Where my rest is set
Is Heaven. And the silence of the stars
Sings in a soundless circle. For the Song
Of Heaven is past hearing, and ascends
Beyond the tiny range the ear can catch,
And soars into a spaceless magnitude
Where Sound and silence meet in unity.”
(Helen Schucman, The Gifts of God)

Sufism is a form of Islamic Gnosticism which really does have many affinities with earlier Gnostic mystical traditions of the middle east. Like other movements of the past that embrace spiritual experience and mystic transport through the Seven Heavens, Sufis have found it useful to compare out-of-body or ascension journeys to the stripping or shedding of garments. The above quote illustrates their view that each soul on the earth-plane is wearing several garments. We are souls wearing subtle bodies or coverings; our physical body is made out of the material substance of the physical universe. We are, as the late Dr. Carl Sagan put it, “star stuff pondering star stuff.” Our bodies are made out of atoms that once came from stars and other objects in the cosmos. When we enter into contemplation and mystical states, our awareness is elsewhere; we become “dead to the world,” have risen above body-consciousness. In that sense, we have, for the duration of our meditation period, “stripped” ourselves of the garment of the body for the purpose of exploring other levels of our existence. The mystic traveler enters into what has been called “the fourth state of consciousness.” In addition to the waking state, the dream state, the unconsciousness state of deep sleep, the truly holistic explorer can also integrate into his or her experience the spiritual worlds.

“Love is too big for just one nation, and God is too big for just one religion.” (Michael Franti)


“Neither inherited beliefs nor those taken on hearsay can advance a seeker on the path of divine revelation.” (Note from the Darshan Singh poetry book, Love’s Last Madness)


“Just as a coded document shows the way to a Hidden Treasure, just so this bijak shows the way to realize the soul; It teaches such words to the soul but there is seldom anyone to understand them.” (Sakhi of Kabir)


“Death enshrouds the whole world, including all the superstitious wisemen. Kabir says, ‘Only those will be freed who find the Path of Love.’” (Songs of Kabir from the Adi Granth, by Nirmal Dass, SUNY Press)


Kabir says, “Recognize me and manifest the Guru in the form of the Sound Current behind the eyes [at the Third Eye Center]. Then you will have no doubts left. If you want to be free from anxiety, then catch the Sound Current. When ever you are in trouble, sit down for doing simran. When you reach the state of concentration, then you are surrounded by a protective aura automatically.” (Anurag Sagar)
