Continuing Study of Chapter 9


The Way of Kingly Knowledge & Kingly Secret Verses 4 – 6

Discussion Themes: 

  • Something Cannot Come from Nothing: Modern cosmology acknowledges the background material which exploded and became this universe is still there. In that ‘material,’ the Yogis experienced infinite pure consciousness. Until recently, scientists would have dismissed such ideas as ‘easily-dismissable bunkum,’ but as their continuing attempts to explain consciousness flounders, they are compelled to consider the observations of great scientists such as Sir Arthur Eddington, “the English scientist who experimentally confirmed Einstein’s theory of general relativity in the early 20th century arguing “there’s a gap in our picture of the universe. We know what matter does but not what it is. We can put consciousness into this gap.”
  • ‘Tracing those Footprints’: Within humanity, there is the greatest manifestation of consciousness, providing ‘footprints’ for us to follow, leading to the luminous soul that dwells within.
  • Wherever you are, The Divine is There: ‘Air is there in the atmosphere; wherever you search you find air. Similarly in religion, you do not have to go here and there, or far away, to see God. Wherever you are, the divine is there, just like oxygen.’
