Christendom by Fred Martinnen, about his books:
There are three volumes all based on the whole life of Jesus in the orient and occident as recorded in the Aquarian Gospel, the modern founding text in spiritual circles about the meaning and relationship of the man Jesus with the universally existing and spreading Love of God, which when it takes form inside an individual turns that person into the Christ.
This, of course, has many stages as is known in many traditions and my book has 3 parts where the first book is fully ready (It also has the blessing of Muni-raji through the words ‘It is good’ when I asked him if I had now enough had tried to weed out empty ballast from the grains of gold that with time also appear if you feel that it is your task to do something in this regard. (This is the case since I was around 20 years in my other now past life in Sweden.)
The first book has as its theme the individual path to the our sanctuary within, where we can lay down all our worries and accept God’s Light and Life as our Source of strength, where we let go of all false literally self-made concepts for the Truth in our hearts, never to be extinguished by any self-made concepts, if held collectively as truths or as a fearful ‘subjective’ truth.
The second book begins where Jesus has reached this goal in far off Tibet, and as a Bodhisattva, now again walks back into that Sanctuary, in my book modeled on the ancient Jerusalem temple. However, now he does not go for himself, he brings all those with him who have had some deeper contact with him through the ages and walks the way he had walked. This is complete in ancient Egypt when for the first time a heavenly voice announces that Jesus is now the Christ of God.
The third part is an interlinear comparison with the 95 % of text in the four gospels that we know that moves in parallel to the Aquarian Gospel account of Jesus last three years as the Christ in Israel up to his resurrection at the 3rd April 33 AD. In it each sentence is ‘weighed’ for if it has the same meaning in the New Testament as in the Aquarian Gospel, or if they differs somewhat or even contradict each other. This allows the questioning reader and earnest seeker to reach some conclusion if this ‘fantasy’ termed the Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ is not perhaps instead a ‘vision’ with power to expand upon the insights that we already have received from the four historical gospels and so also power to suggest corrections to what was perhaps misunderstood by the gospel writers, especially since all inspired scriptures from the Holy Spirit also have been edited by the carnal ego throughout the ages.
Universal Sufism by Martin
Sufism is an attitude to life, it is not a separate religion. You will find Sufis among the adherents of every religion. Wherever humans beings allow themselves to be inspired by the atmosphere and the soul of a religion, rather than by its dogma’s, Sufism thrives.
The Message of Sufism, therefore, is not a new religion. It deals with the same truth that has always been preached by every religion. The difference is just that the message was brought in a different time and also the personality of the prophet influenced the tone of voice.
Within Sufism, much emphasis is placed on the necessity to search for the divine spark within oneself. It is about learning to experience something, rather than learning to believe something. An important way of gaining access to that divine spark is being open to beauty in all its manifestations, be it music, visual art, the experience of nature, or poetry.
The second point of access is love. That is true of every religion, but the Sufi consistently regards his Source, his Higher Self or whatever name you wish to employ, as the Divine Beloved. That is what she is constantly after. Sufism has been called “the religion of the heart”. And it is a very personal religion to boot. You start on a continuous process of refinement of the self. The chances of success are optimal if you do that under the tuition of someone who has been there. That is why Sufis choose a master and initiator, and start to call themselves ‘mureed’ which means pupil or student. Whatever their achievements, they remain ‘mureed’ until they die. They learn from their initiator by carefully observing how the teacher deals with everyday life. Because a Sufi does not extricate herself from daily life, believing that to participate in everyday life is the best religious training possible. Sufis therefore are often not recognizable as such, they lead, religiously speaking, unobtrusive lives. Some of them however, acquire in time a special radiance. But they defy categorization. Whenever you think you have fathomed them, they do something unexpected and escape those who want to get a grip on them. Sufis are persecuted in political systems where religion is used to discipline individuals. The real Sufi however, tries to continue to live according to the principles of Love, Harmony and Beauty under all circumstances. And she recognizes everyone that does the same, inspired by whatever religion, as Brother or Sister. The Sufi even goes so far as recognize the divine Spark even in her enemies. Because in an ideal world, everything is part of the divine reality and separateness does not exist.
Sanatan dharma by Frides lameris
Sanatan Dharma means eternal religion or eternal Dharma, where dharma means that force that (forever) sustains the existence, growth and flow of the universe. Babaji taught and teaches that Sanatan Dharma is the timeless universal law, without beginning and without end. Sanatan Dharma is like the ocean, while other religions are like streams ultimately coming together in the Sanatan Dharma. So this means Sanatan Dharma is not a specific religion but it can better be seen as the basis of religion. The significance of this can only be proven on the basis of personal spiritual experience as Sanatan Dharma is not a belief-system.
