Gate

The Gate

"Concentrate and contemplate to overcome and shatter all the impurities and narrowness of the mind, separation, cultural biases, prejudices, desires, and attachments.  Remember, the gate is narrow, and few will find it."

Maitreya
Satsang 10/7/2006

Frequently, I reflect on my life experiences, and think about their lessons through the eyes of THOTH and Maitreya's teachings.

One year ago I took my son to a park that was around the corner from our house, and noticed that in it there was a new skateboard park that had been built.  Kids were riding both skateboards and bicycles in the new skateboard park.  I pointed to the signs outside the skateboard park and told my son that no bicycles were allowed inside, but you could see where someone had tried to scratch the rule off the sign.  I told my son that the skateboard park was not designed for bicycles, but for skateboards only, and warned that it would be dangerous for both the skateboarder and the bicyclist.  I showed him examples of how several bicyclists almost ran into skateboarders.  I looked at my son and told him that if he ever rode his bike in the skateboard park, he would be grounded. 

Over the year, my wife and I slowly gave our son additional privileges, and eventually let him ride his bike to the park.  My son came home with his knees scraped and a little blood dripping from his arms and legs.  He started to tell my wife and I about how he rode his bike in the skateboard park, and fell down.  “Did I tell you not to ride your bike in the skateboard park?”  My son said, “Yes, but other kids were riding their bicycles in the park.”  “Did I not tell you that riding your bike was against the rules?”  My son said he forgot, even though he admitted he knew the rule was scratched out from the sign.  “Did I not tell you that you would be grounded if you rode your bike in the skateboard park?”  We cleaned up and bandaged our son, and then we grounded him.  Watching our children grow up, we see the reasoning they use to do what they desire.  Reflecting upon ourselves, we see our own reasoning for not following the teachings of God.

Straight is the path and narrow is the gate.  Wide is the road that leads to destruction.

From the world we live in today we see that wide is the road humanity has chosen to follow.  Since the beginning, man has had a choice between following the straight path of God, or one of the many paths of this world.  With each religion that God has revealed to humanity, man has changed the religion according to his own understandings and desires, and veered off the straight path.  Paul removed the requirement of circumcision from Christianity.  Constantine combined pagan holidays with religious holidays.  Baha'u'llah changed the times of day for worship.  Muslims disagreed over who should be their leader.  Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Baha'i, Ananda Marga; Each religion has separated into many.  Wars are waged against each other, instead of within to follow the laws of God revealed through the Messenger.    
 

"Every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil every day."

Bible Genesis 6:5, Judaism 


"Arise therefore! 
And with the help of thy Spirit lift up the soul: allow not thy soul to fall. 

For thy soul can be thy friend, and thy soul can be thine enemy. 

The soul of man is his friend when by the Spirit he has conquered his soul;
but when a man is not lord of his soul then this becomes his own enemy."

Bhagavad Gita 6:5-6, Hinduism


"Surely God wrongs not men anything, but men wrong themselves."

Qur'an 10:44, Islam


"Although enemies such as hatred and craving
Have neither any arms nor legs,
And are neither courageous nor wise,
How have I been used like a slave by them?

For while they dwell within my mind
At their pleasure they cause me harm,
Yet I patiently endure them without any anger;
But this is an inappropriate and shameful time for patience.

Should even all the gods and anti-gods
Rise up against me as my enemies,
They could not lead nor place me in
The roaring fires of deepest hell.

But the mighty foe, these disturbing conceptions,
In a moment can cast me amidst [those flames]
Which when met will cause not even the ashes
Of the king of mountains to remain.

All other enemies are incapable
Of remaining for such a length of time
As can my disturbing conceptions,
The long-time enemy with neither beginning nor end....

While in cyclic existence, how can I be joyful and unafraid
If in my heart I readily prepare a place
For this incessant enemy of long duration,
The sole cause for the increase of all that harms me?

And how shall I ever have happiness
If in a net of attachment within my mind
There dwell the guardians of the prison of cyclic existence,
These disturbing conceptions that become my butchers and tormentors in hell?"

Shantideva 4:28-35, Buddhism

God's Message has always been the same, and is eternal.  As the Day of Atonement approaches, I reflect upon my life.  I have won major battles within my own heart since finding a man born in the East named Maitreya, but I have not won the war within.  We have not won the war within until we have followed all of the Messenger's teachings.  Anything less will cause separation between us.  Anything less will cause us to repeat the lessons of history.  Anything less is not acceptable in the Eyes of God.  Anything less will bring the world to the state it is in now.  Is Maitreya the Messenger of God?


“But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the Prophets.”

Revelation 10:7 King James Version of the Bible


"The seventh angel is a man qualified with heavenly attributes, who will arise with heavenly qualities and character.  Voices will be raised, so that the appearance of the Divine Manifestation will be proclaimed and diffused.  In the day of the manifestation of the Lord of Hosts, and at the epoch of the divine cycle of the Omnipotent which is promised and mentioned in all the books and writings of the Prophets -- in that day of God, the Spiritual and Divine Kingdom will be established, and the world will be renewed; a new spirit will be breathed into the body of creation, the season of the divine spring will come, the clouds of mercy will rain, the sun of reality will shine, the life-giving breeze will blow, the world of humanity will wear a new garment, the surface of the earth will be a sublime paradise; mankind will be educated, wars, disputes, quarrels and malignity will disappear, and truthfulness, righteousness, honesty, and the worship of God will rule for evermore; meaning that the Spiritual and Everlasting Kingdom will be established.  Such is the day of God.  For all the days which have come and gone were the days of Abraham, Moses and Christ, or of the other Prophets; but this day is the day of God, for the Sun of Reality will arise in it with the utmost warmth and splendor."

Some Answered Questions (Chap. 39) by Abdul Baha


"By the Signs of the Seven Stars shall the Gates be opened."
Maitreya, The Lord Of The World
by Dr. M. Doreal, page 10

 

Maitreya opened the Gate to the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth by revealing the Eternal Divine Path in a book sealed with the Seven Seals called THOTH (The Holiest of the Holies).  The world never looks the same way again.  We see the emptiness of what we desire, the ignorance of our prior understanding, and the hollowness of what we have done with our lives.  We find happiness in the simpler things in life and experience a peace of mind in a world we cannot see, and it overflows into everything we do. 

What would prevent us from entering the Gate?  Impurities, narrowness of the mind, separation, cultural biases, prejudices, desires, attachments, and our own free will used against the laws that God revealed through Maitreya.  The lessons of history from this world, and knowledge through the eyes of Maitreya's teachings guide us to the straight path and narrow gate.  Some people will use their reasoning for not believing Maitreya is the Christ.  Some people will use their reasoning for not following the Eternal Divine Path revealed to them.  Some people will choose from what they want to follow from the teachings of Maitreya based upon their understandings and desires.  Not all will enter the Gate.

Straight is the path and narrow is the gate.


Entering the gate requires we give up some of our prior learning to understand the truth.  Entering the gate requires us to give up our rationalizations for not following the Way of Light revealed to us, and implement the teachings of Maitreya in our lives to go back to God.  Only then will we be able to realize the new vision of the world that Maitreya has revealed through his teachings, a world where starvation, poverty, pollution, and the results of man's way that leads to suffering will start to disappear. 

When humanity follows the same guidance and light, the separation of man that creates wars will disappear.  We will learn to live in accordance to our own nature and the nature of the world that God created for us.  The world will be renewed.  The tears of humanity will start to disappear.  The Eternal Divine Path has been revealed that leads humanity to the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.  The gate is open.  Enter the gate to free humanity from the bondage of this world by following the teachings of God.  Enter the gate to bring a new golden era of peace and unity to Earth.  The time has come to win the war within to surrender and submit to the Will of God.  The time has come to enter the gate that returns back home to God.
