Sant Mat Satsang, Weekly Stream of Updates: Light and Sound on the Path, Dec. 19th:
Rumi: "Love is the energizing elixir of the universe, the cause and effect of all Harmonies."
"In all truth it can be said that the fall of the human being took place when he began to forget himself. That is to say: to forget his Supreme Being, the mysterious Source whence he emerged." (The Law of Attention - Nada Yoga and the Way of Inner Vigilance, Edward Salim Michael, Inner Traditions)
Yeshua: "If your spiritual guides say to you, 'Look, the divine realm is in the sky,' well then the birds will get there ahead of you. If they say, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. No, the divine Reality exists inside and all around you. Only when you have come to know your true Self will you be fully known - realizing at last that you are a child of the Living One. If, however, you never come to know who you really are, you are a poverty-stricken being, and it is your 'self' which lies impoverished." (Gospel of Thomas - Wisdom of the Twin, Lynn Bauman, White Cloud Press)
"O Surat [Soul]! Who are you and whence have you come? This world is a net spread by the mind. Why do you get entangled in it? You are a ray from the Purush (the Supreme Being) and an inhabitant of the purely Spiritual Region. Kal [lord of time] has put a noose round your neck. Turn back and go to your Home, by the grace of Sat Guru and in the company of Sadhs (those who are engaged in Parmath [spirituality]). Listen to Anhad Shabd within, says Radhasoami." (Swami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Poetry, Volume One)

Kabir says: "Keep on doing your work. Keep on reciting God's name, and you will live pleasantly in the world."
Guru Nanak: "With the holy Name as one's foundation, this wavering mind is firmly held, and in Truth it dwells. And when in truth one love's the Lord, then the Lord Himself grants union with Him."

More Recommended Books on the Path of the Masters, Inner Light and Sound Meditation:
Param Sant Tulsi Sahib: "Pure Light is shining within."
Kabir says, "It is the mercy of my Satguru that has made me to know the unknown. I have learned from Him how to walk without feet, to see without eyes, to hear without ears, to drink without mouth, to fly without wings. I have brought my love and my meditation into the land where there is no sun and moon, nor day and night. Without eating, I have tasted of the sweetness of nectar; and without water, I have quenched my thirst. Where there is the response of delight, there is the fullness of joy. Before whom can that joy be uttered? Kabir says: "The Guru is great beyond words, and great is the good fortune of the disciple." (Songs of Kabir, satgur soi daya kar dinha)
Rumi: "O lovers, lovers it is time to set out from the world. I hear a drum in my soul's ear coming from the depths of the stars."
Rumi Says: "Do not be satisfied with the stories that come before you. Unfold your own myth."
Soami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Poetry: "Practise the Abhyas of Surat Shabd Yoga. Apply your body and mind to Sumiran (recitation of the Holy Name). Go on beholding the countenance of Guru. Listen to the Sound of Anhad Shabd every day. Cultivate a keen desire to attend Satsang, and do so whenever you can."
"The deeper one goes in meditation, and the loftier the spiritual states one touches, the more the motion and feeling of time will alter and take on an entirely different aspect. The greater the merger into one's higher state of consciousness, the slower and less perceptible will time become until, in the still more exalted mystical states, it will feel as if it stops altogether." (Edward Salim Michael, "The Law of Attraction - Nada Yoga and the Way of Inner Vigilance", Inner Traditions, Vermont)
Soami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Poetry: "The devotee should sit in a secluded place, turn his senses inward and perform Abhyas [meditation practices]. He will attain peace of mind. He should withdraw the two petals (the currents flowing to the two eyes from the focus), and advance to Gagan [mystic inner Sky]. He will hear Shabd and feel delighted. He will behold Jyoti flame (in Sahas-dal-kanwal), the Sun (in Trikuti), and the Moon (in Sunn). He will reach Sat Lok and settle there. On hearing the incessant resounding of Shabd, his Surat will smile in ecstasy and bliss."
"O devotee! There is a wonderful display within this body. In the darkness of this body is the sky studded with the stars, the Moon and the Sun. There is the subtle body within the physical one and in that subtle body is the causal one. And yet there is the fourth one, that is, the supra-causal body. The fifth body, that is, Kaivalya (Oneness) is without attributes and full of knowledge. Mehi says, the Quintessential Word along with the Absolute, is present within one's body." (Padavali of Maharshi Mehi)
"Whatever a seeker's higher destiny is, and whatever direction his Supreme Being bids him take to accomplish it, he must obey and not let himself be swayed by the persuasive arguments or criticism of others, no matter how logical their reasoning may appear or how harsh their condemnation may be." (Edward Salim Michael, "The Law of Attraction - Nada Yoga and the Way of Inner Vigilance", Inner Traditions, Vermont)
"Those, within whom the Truth dwells, obtain the True Name; they speak only the Truth. They walk on the Lord's Path, and inspire others to walk on the Lord's Path as well." (Guru Ramdas)
"True scriptures are those which teach kindness and compassion towards all living beings." (Nigam soi jo daya dridhave.) -- Sant Dariya Sahib

"This mysterious path is described in the holy books, but it cannot be found simply by the study of sacred texts. It is found by the grace and guidance of an accomplished teacher." (Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj)
