Grace Came By Esa, Law With Muhammad,
Universalism With Baha’i
In Islam, Muhammad
brought a lot of laws for the Moslems. Also in the Hebrew
teaching, a lot of laws came through Moses.
all the great religions of the world, the Law of Karma (a reaction
for any action and its consequence) more or less has been accepted.
Although this Law has been presented in different terms or phrases,
they all express this truth: those who do not follow God’s
Laws (sin) will be punished sooner or later, unless they learn their
lessons and repent.
So if it is
true, then why do we need social punishment and/or why did Moses and
Muhammad constitute external punishment for the wrongdoers?
Law of Karma is true and man knowingly or unknowingly is punished
for his wrongdoings, this Law prevents only those who are sensitive
enough or are in a higher consciousness from wrongdoing. They
realize the truth behind this Law and therefore keep themselves from
those who are in their lower natures truly believe they are nothing
more than this physical body. They have no sense of spiritual
existence, and no sensitivity toward the punishments that they bear
because of their actions. They only understand bodily
discomfort and punishment. In fact earthly laws are for people
in this level or consciousness who, by being punished physically or
by seeing others punished physically, are prevented from
Prophet Muhammad did not
put it in the way of the Law of Karma; he put it in a much simpler
way for the people around him at that time to understand. He
said, “It is going to be like a necklace around your neck.”
That necklace shows what your action has been in your lifetime, and
you are going to be judged according to those actions.
That has been the base
for the laws brought by Moses or Prophet Muhammad. The man who
is spiritually aware knows that the judgment of God is enough for
him and His Laws are followed by internal awareness of the
consequence of breaking them, and/or the joy of following them.
Grace burns all impurities! But the man of flesh only knows
the punishment of flesh and how to avoid such a punishment.
these laws only are valid and enforceable if a just society has been
created and true leaders (incorruptible and just) are leading
In order to
implement God’s Laws in society justly, the awareness of the people
of the truth behind the religions and God (truth) is another factor.
So the mass would not be exploited by intellectual spiritualists
(dogmas) because of their ignorance.
again more reasons that each person should become familiar with the
truth behind the spiritual world and realize that the leadership of
Paravipras (true leaders, Elected Ones) is necessary. After
such a society has been established, then the Laws of God can be
applied to those who even in such a society will not follow the
social orders but continue to commit crimes. Then they will be
punished. With this, they would become an external symbol of
internal punishment for those who need such an example.
We find the laws of
Moses and Muhammad so hard to practice in our unjust societies.
In a society where all have the basic necessities, a man who steals
out of greed can have his hand cut off. But if a man steals
out of necessity, or for any other forgivable reason, he cannot be
judged for that action.
Prophet Muhammad and
other Prophets are saying the truths of the universe, in different
ways, with the same understanding of the realities of the universe.
Daharma (Darma) is a
Sanskrit word, which means “innate nature.” Every particle or
being in the universe has one or multiple Daharmas. The
Daharma of an animal is to eat, drink, sleep, regenerate, progress
in that level of consciousness, and die. He does not have any
knowledge of self or God.
of man in the physiological level is as an animal, but man is more
developed and also has a greater Daharma. That greater Daharma
is to realize the spiritual world and to reach the goal of creation:
Pure Consciousness. That is, the human body is the most
perfect instrument for reaching Pure Consciousness.
also be described as rules, regulations, or Laws which govern each
part of the universe alone, or all of the universe as a whole.
We have individual Daharma, Daharma for a special group of people
(men, woman, etc.), Daharma for society, world Daharma, Universal
Daharma (Laws), etc.
Daharmas are called the Laws of God by the Prophets. These
Laws can never be broken. A person might think he can break
these Laws, or even apparently that person will break the Laws.
But eventually he who breaks these Laws breaks himself against them.
That is what the process
of evolution and history teach humans. If they understand and
follow the lessons given by this process, they can accelerate their
progress toward Pure Consciousness. Yet if they follow their
false egos and their own laws and regulations (lower natures), no
one will be hurt but themselves.
This body is
given to us for a purpose. For example, when we feel pain we
know something is wrong. In the same way, when everyone
becomes lost and does not know what to do in life, then man should
know there is something wrong with his laws and way of living.
finally sees that throughout all of history he has suffered by
following his false ego, then he will realize the shortcomings of
his own laws and surrender to the Universal Laws, no matter how bad
they look to his ego. Only by following the Daharma of
everything can we be happy. No matter how much we
intellectually argue, it will not help to bring happiness to
humanity. Only following the Laws of God will bring
everlasting happiness and peace.
God sent the
Commandments. Follow them and then see the results. You
will see the strength, the quietness of the mind, the peace of the
Soul and spirit when you follow Him. And those are really what
God brings the sun up in
the sky, He does not care of it is shining on a sinner or a Saint.
The difference is that the sinner has an umbrella over his head.
Although the sun is up, he is not receiving any light. The
problem with the sinner (who is self-centered, selfish, and
disconnected) is that he or she has his umbrella of ego over his
head. God is giving The Grace all the time, but he is not
does not have any ego. He is open and says, “Oh, great, I am
receiving all this Grace.” He is very happy.
So there is
no difference between us. The difference is how much we are
receiving the Spirit from Him.
Once more God is trying
to awaken man to understand that He exists. He expects man to
understand this, give up his little false ego, and follow Him and
His Laws. Only those who do so will be regarded as greater
than the rest. Those who keep their limited egos and do not
come to the path of righteousness will suffer the consequences of
their actions and will go far astray. Those who go to Him will
reach salvation through His Grace.
If we say that Islam
does not believe in reincarnation, then we are saying that God
cannot reincarnate. That is directly opposed to the Koran’s
teaching of “Allah verily is Able to do all things.” Also,
reincarnation is the way to believe in the justness of God. If
all men have only one lifetime and man is born in an environment
where he never had a chance to progress even to be told of the
realities of the Scriptures and God, then God cannot judge him.
But if he is reincarnated again and again, and warned and tested but
he refuses to be guided, then it is justified for him to be drowned
into illusion (be punished).
Koran was sent to correct previous stories which had been
given by God, and also to bring new laws after the lawgiving was
taken from Judah. Furthermore, we know the Bible had
been lost, many other teachings had influenced it, and some parts
had been omitted or added. Therefore, for understanding the
truth, we should trust the new revelations, which were sent by God
to humanity. But not blindly – we should see if they have been
fulfilled or not.
