SPIRITUAL TEACHINGS FOR OUR TIMES
In this eBook you will find truths taught by saviors, saints and sages that will be new to most people living in the West. These truths are based on experience rather than conjecture, and they expand our understanding of spiritual reality. They show us that in essence we are perfect, created in the image of God, and how to penetrate the veil that keeps us from experiencing the light and love within us. The teachings in this book will help you to love yourself and others, learning from your mistakes and forgiving your own and others’ errors in the past. You will find constructive ways of thinking that will help you find peace, joy and contentment within, many suggestions for improving physical well-being, and techniques that relax the nervous system, calm the mind and facilitate meditation.
Spiritual Teachings for Our Times begins by describing the nature of the Self—the immortal essence of the soul—and God. It then presents considerable information on the principles, practices and benefits of the sacred science of yoga, which the author wrote for a college course in yoga that he taught for many years. Next there are articles that explain some of the disciplines and meditation techniques of yoga, and first-hand accounts of how the yoga teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and the postures of hatha yoga were introduced to a wider audience in Michigan in the 1960s.
Following this, you will find articles on a wide variety of spiritual subjects including intuition, the power of love, the origin of the ego, free will, the meaning of the Garden of Eden story, communicating with beings in spirit, prophecy, the return of Jesus, and evaluations of some current metaphysical teachings.
In addition to ancient teachings from the East, this book includes new teachings about love, oneness, the ego and duality that have been given to us by Jesus in our time through those he has chosen to receive and publish his words. Two thousand years ago, very few would have been able to understand some of the concepts in this book, but today human consciousness is more developed, and more people are ready for Jesus' new teachings. They fill in the gaps in our current understanding of life and are not only for Christians but for all who seek truth.
