Cosmology: We can Influence Destiny

EXCERPT FROM ESOTERIC ASTROLOGY BY IMRE VALLYON

The ancients had a very vast knowledge, and modern astrology is beginning to recover some of this profound knowledge. During the middle and dark ages, all astrology was down-to-earth as people worried about physical plane processes. Modern astrology tends to deal with the psychological level, which is very good. However, before the end of this century there will be a new trend developing – astrology purely for spiritual unfoldment, and for reaching Cosmic Consciousness.

Cosmology deals with the origin of the universe and the cosmic interrelatedness of all things. In other words, everything is interrelated to everything else, and this is what astrology is trying to show. Interrelatedness is part of the Divine Law, how the Divine Mind works.

Everything within the solar system is interrelated to everything else: our Sun is interrelated to a group of twelve Suns which, in turn, are interrelated to another group of larger Suns which are interrelated to the central part of the galaxy. That, itself, is interrelated to another galaxy, and so on. Nothing is isolated, and what actually happens down here on Earth is really what our little planet Earth can receive from the vast cosmos. The Earth is a being, an inhabitant of the cosmos, and so is the Sun, and so are we. This means that what our planet Earth can receive from the greater cosmos, we can become.

The Absolute, which we cannot know or worry about, is the Cosmic Heart. Below that stands the Creator, which is a condensation of the Limitless Light, or the Omni-field of the Light of the Absolute, and further below that the Light condenses into a center, which becomes the universe. This universe is inhabited by the great Cosmic Gods – the Logoi, the Rulers or the progenitors of the galaxies. Their aura surrounds a whole galaxy, and within them all other things arise.

The galaxies are Cosmic Gods, or we can say Intelligent Beings whose bodies comprise the many various stellar systems. Below them, we come down to something smaller, to a star which is another being – a lesser god, like a Solar God, or Solar Logos. Even further down, we find the hierarchies. From our Solar Logos, there arise the planetary spirits; our mother Earth is a spirit in whose physical body we live, in whom “… we live, and move, and have our being….” – (Acts 17:28).

All of our planets live in the Sun, and our Sun lives in this Cosmic Space. We actually live and move and have our being in a hierarchy above mankind. On the planets there are hierarchies – like a human hierarchy on Earth. There are also the angelic hierarchies, the animal hierarchies, and many others. In fact, twelve hierarchies exist on our planet Earth, coexisting with each other: the human, the animal, the plant, and the mineral hierarchies are only four of them. But there are eight other hierarchies which belong to the angelic, the Archangelic, and other spiritual hierarchies – all inhabiting this one single planet we call Earth. Kabbalah gives a very detailed picture of the universe, and astrology is all part of this science. This is just a part of the astrological knowledge of the ancients.

In conventional astrology we learn that somehow the planets influence us, and perhaps influence the destiny of a race, or even the whole planet itself. Oriental astrologists go further and say that, yes, we are influenced, but using the right means we can also do something about it. We can somewhat change, mitigate or modify astrological influences with the right kind of rituals, chanting, sound, color, visualization, mandalas, symbols, and other means.

The idea of Oriental Astrology is that you are not a victim of these powers; that you can actually do something about them. So in astrology, there are two kinds of astrologers: the ones who are fatalistic, and the ones who are free. The fatalistic astrologers say that everything is predetermined, and things will happen as described in the stars and we cannot do anything about it. The other kind of astrologers say, “Yes you can do something about it.” There is quite a big distinction between these two.

Mantra

EXCERPT FROM THE ART OF MEDITATION BY IMRE VALLYON

What makes a sacred language, or the sacred part of a language, sacred? Whether the language is Sanskrit, Hebrew, Arabic, Greek, Latin, Chinese, or any ancient language, the sacred part of it is sacred because of the sound formulas (letters) in the language. Each one of the sound formulas is a unique strand of energy in the Ocean of Shãkti. So when you introduce a Mantra into your system your natural Shākti energy field is impacted by the unique stream of energy that that particular mantra represents. That is why it can be awakened inside you.

As was mentioned previously, the Universal Shākti is always inside us, but we are simply not aware of it. When we recite a mantra internally, we slowly learn to focus our attention on the mantra, and we begin to realize that it is an energy stream. Then, as our attention remains focused on the mantra and we penetrate deeper and deeper into the very substance of that mantra, we realize that that energy stream is actually a wavelet in Mahashakti, the Great Ocean of Energy permeating all of Creation. Mantra is a part of that Ocean, a specialized part that allows us to access it.

In Sanskrit a mantra is referred to as bija, or a ‘seed’, a concentrated form of energy. A seed mantra, RAM or OM for example, is composed of letters. But they are not just letters, they are energy units. When you say the mantra out loud, you make a physical sound, which is a sound-energy unit that has a measurable vibration and a specific form or shape. But the real significance of the mantra is that on the inner levels it also forms a perceivable structure and a definite energy wave. If you look clairvoyantly at the mantra you are reciting, you will see a translucent shape, usually the form of a god or a goddess or an angelic or other translucent being. You will also see that the mantra emanates different colours, as well as a pulsating light wave. So the mantra has a threefold effect: form, colour, and light (which is its innermost essence). In the beginning it is just the form you will notice; later on you will be aware of its actual energy; and finally you will notice its essence of light.

Thus the mantra takes you from the form worlds to the intermediary energy worlds to the real world of Light. And it can do that because the mantra that you recite is not separate from the Shākti Energy that permeates and sustains the form worlds of Creation—the physical, astral, mental, and causal universes and heaven worlds—the countless universes made out of matter of different degrees of density. Nor is it separate from the Transcendental Reality, the Infinite Field of Light that contains the form worlds and the formless worlds—the Buddhic, Nirvanic, Paranirvanic, and Mahaparanirvanic Planes.

The important point is that the mantra will slowly take your awareness away from the form reality to the energy reality and then to the Light reality. And it does this in a natural way, because Shabda Brāhman, or God as Sound, has three aspects: the Sound that produces physical Creation; the Sound that is Shãkti, the Energy Reality; and the Sound that is Light, the Absolute Condition. Sound is an unimaginable reality. That is why in every religion the Divine Name is an unimaginable Glory beyond the conception of even the highest Buddhas or Angels or Christs, who only know that there is something beyond the Absolute Light that they cannot even name—what we call God or the Absolute or the Transcendental Reality.

The amazing thing about Mantra is that, if you persevere with its practice with total dedication and sincerity, it will take you through major transformations of awareness inside yourself—by its very nature. First it will impact on anything that is created or formed—the physical, astral, mental, and causal forms that we can see with our physical, astral, mental, and causal eyes, appearing to them as separated forms and objects. But as the mantra takes you deeper inside yourself, the awareness of separate forms disappears as you become aware of the Boundless Ocean of Energy. The mantra will take you to that awareness because it is that Energy, its source is in that Energy. Then, as you reach the perfected stages of meditation, even the attraction to the Ocean of Energy disappears, as you realize the mantra’s subtle essence of Pure Light. Then you will be drawn to the other Universe, to the Light of Atman, the Light of God.

Cosmology deals with the origin of the universe and the cosmic interrelatedness of all things. In other words, everything is interrelated to everything else, and this is what astrology is trying to show. Interrelatedness is part of the Divine Law, how the Divine Mind works.

Mystical Contemplation

EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 28, HEAVENS AND HELLS OF THE MIND BY IMRE VALLYON

The Theologia Germanica asks:
What is it like to partake of God’s Divine Nature, to be filled with Divine Light, to be imbued with the Eternal Love of Christ? 

For that, in truth, is the essential purpose of Christianity. In the early days of Christianity this infusion of Light into the Soul was to be done now, in this lifetime, while in the body. When Christianity became “Churchianity”, however, this became only a promisefor a future afterlife in “Heaven”. 

The true Christian Tradition—true Gnosticism, Hesychasm and Mysticism—is not about asking God for things to pamper one’s personality (however useful such things might be). It is about loving God, simply because God is

Mystical Contemplation occurs when you subdue the thoughts in your ordinary, discursive, reasoning mind, leave behind all attachments to worldly things and, in absolute detachment from all things (including yourself!), raise yourself into the Stream of Divine Light. Thus taught, also, Saint Dionsius the Areopagite. 

The earliest forms of Christian prayers (meditations) were to allow the transcendence of the thinking faculty, to stop the chatter of the mind, imagination and memory. Then, in a wordless, thoughtless mind-state, one could ascend to the contemplation of the Presence of God by a direct Knowing, a Soul-touch, above the mind. In this sense, true Christianity is identical to true Yoga, Sufsm, Buddhism, Taoism, Jewish Mysticism and Zen. 

Tantra and Relational Consciousness

Tantra is Relational Consciousness. What is relationship? Relationship is a connection or happening between you and some other person or object. If nothing is going on between you and something else, then there is no relationship.

You can avoid relationships. The ascetic, the yogi, the sannyasin, the monk, the nun and the renunciate avoid relationship. They are not related to anybody or anything and therefore they are “happy”. They have no responsibility to anyone or for anyone, so their lives appear free of complications. Although such a life seems ideal-free of distractions and difficulties—it is also insipid and most often useless. Such people live for themselves alone.

Sometimes I am asked if enlightened people have emotions, or should they not remain in a state of blissful Nirvana, uncaring and unaffected by the sea of emotions and suffering all around? Yet, if you look at the lives of the Great Ones—the Buddha, the Christ, Sri Krsna, Rama, Muhammad, Mahavira, and the countless thousands of Saints, ancient and modern—their lives were precisely lives of relatedness. They had Relational Consciousness. They were concerned for people. They cried and agonized over people.

It is true that there are some Saints who enter Nirvana, the Kingdom of God, and become blissfully unaware of Mankind and its problems. They live in their own private world of Bliss and Transcendental Consciousness. They relate to nobody. But such Saints are rare, because the majority of the Great Ones choose relatedness.

If you surrender your ego totally—that is, if you surrender your whole body and mind structure and annihilate all vestige of the personal self in you—then it is possible for you to stay in a relative calm all your life, and at death to become absorbed into the Transcendental Bliss of Nirvana. It is also true, however, that if you choose this Path (the Path of the Pratyeka Buddha or Solitary Mystic), then you have to get away from the world. You have to live alone in a cave or in the desert, or in some lonely spot, and not engage in any human activity. You must remain completely alone, single, solitary, unique. Then your relationship is with the Transcendental alone, with the Absolute, with the Source of your Being.

There have been many Saints who lived like this, both in the East and in the West, but they were never the movers and shakers of civilization. They were not the inspirers of the people. The Great Ones were those who stayed with their people, who had concern for them, who suffered with them, who laughed and cried with them. The Great Ones lived and died for others. It is They who have benefited Humanity. Although they walked with the crowd, they were not of the crowd. Although they lived in the world, they were not of the world.

Renaissance of the Mind Through Metanoia

EXTRACTS FROM CHAPTER 60, HEAVENS AND HELLS OF THE MIND BY IMRE VALLYON

Metanoia is something that changes your life, something by which you make amends, something that changes your mind-set or mental structure, a change of Heart….You use a word (a divine sentence) which transforms your mind and hence brings about a revolution in your life.

Metanoia is the principle of becoming New by invoking the Soul-Power, the Being of Light, by the right mind-set or attitude. 

Some Metanoias for Inner Guidance

In the depths of the Heart, God speaks.

The Christ is already in you.
The work of the Holy Spirit is to remove the veil from your eyes
so that you may see this Truth.

The Master Power works regardless of time, place or circumstance.

The true Guru is inside you. It is the Light of God which dispels your inner Darkness.

I am receiving Divine Guidance.

I am, even now, the Eternal.
I am guided by Cosmic Intelligence.

Science of Meditation

EXCERPT FROM THE ART OF MEDITATION BY IMRE VALLYON

The secret of meditation is difficult for the Westerner to understand, because the Westerner does not understand the basic constitution of the human being or the Universe. For the Westerner, a human being has a physical body, an emotional structure, a mental structure, and a balloon called the Soul. Nobody knows where that balloon is (supposedly it is floating up in heaven somewhere), and when you die, you somehow become that Soul and join the Heavenly Father surrounded by angels playing harps. With such a disunited view of reality it is difficult for people in the West to understand the secret of meditation: Nothing is disunited; everything constitutes one complete continuum. This means that your physical body is continuous with your astral body, which is continuous with your mind body, which is continuous with your Soul, which is continuous with your Spirit, which is continuous with God. Only with such a view will the process of meditation begin to make sense.

When you sit down to meditate, therefore, you are seeking Unity – or in religious terminology, God-Consciousness; in Yogic terminology, Self-Realization; in Buddhist terminology, Nirvana; and in Chinese terminology, Tao. Whatever word you use, you are seeking an ultimate experience that you think is somewhere far out of your reach. And this notion arises because of your compartmental way of thinking, since you do not realize that you are already in that ultimate condition. The function of meditation is to remove the blocks that prevent you from realizing that you are already in the ultimate condition that you are seeking. You are already in that ultimate condition because there is only one infinite continuum that contains no separate parts.

Mantra Siddhi, the power of the mantra, is the basis of meditation. The understanding of the use of Mantra – Mantra Science – is vast in scope, with thousands of mantras in the Eastern system and in the Western system (the Hebrew Hagah system). But I want to tell you about Mantra Siddhi so that you will be inspired to use mantras, so that you will grasp their profound significance. Mantra Siddhi means that each mantra has its own power. The Sanskrit word Siddhi has many meanings: accomplishment, perfection, psychic or occult power, success, and vital energy. So the term Mantra Siddhi encompasses all these meanings: It means that through Mantra you accomplish, you achieve, you succeed, you have vital energy, and you realize perfection.

To begin with, the origin of Mantra is Shākti, the Great Sea of Feminine Energy that permeates all Creation, ruling, guiding, and organizing it. Now Mantra Shākti, or the energy of the mantra, has its origin in that higher source. In Yoga, the upper regions of Shãkti are called Nāda or Shabda-Brāhman or Anāhatā-Shabda, which refer to sound in its highest resonance. None of these is a physical sound; they are causal sounds that can only be heard with causal hearing. In your causal body, therefore, you are immersed in a massive sea of Sound-Light Energy. In other words, the Causal World, the highest region of Shãkti, is a massive sea of mantric energy that manifests as differentiated Sound and Light. And then that mantric energy descends and forms the Mental Worlds, then the Astral Worlds, and finally the Etheric-Physical and Physical Worlds.

That is the origin of Mantra. So Creation is actually produced through sound, or Mantra, and each mantra emanated by a creator becomes the created act. For instance, the Solar Logos utters a mantra and the Solar System comes into being. On a smaller scale the Planetary Logos utters a mantra and the planet comes into being. Every Creative Hierarchy utters mantras and Creation comes into being. The principle is the same whether it is a human creator, an angelic creator, a god or goddess, a logos, a solar logos, or a galactic logos. They all utter mantras and those mantras bring about creation on various scales.

What is important to understand is that the Mantra Shākti comes from the Causal World. So when you receive a mantra in an initiation, the creative act has already been performed for you: The mantra has been brought down from the Causal World. When you use the mantra, however, the movement is reversed. As you recite the mantra inside yourself, you immediately set up a sound resonance—Nāda or Shabda Brāhman or Anāhatā-Shabda—a sound vibration too subtle for the physical ear to hear, audible only in the inner dimensions with the psychic inner ear. Every time you announce that mantra, therefore, there is an effect in the Cosmos, in the Inner Worlds, where it is clearly perceptible as an energy current. And since by the laws of nature every action has a reaction, there must be a response from the Cosmos. And this is the key to Mantra Siddhi (the power of Mantra).

That is why the great Teachers of Mantra say that everybody, without exception, can be saved by the power of Mantra. No matter how bad their karma or how low their consciousness or how degenerate they may be: If they use Mantra systematically, the transformation must take place. Mantra is one medicine that is applicable to everybody. Only one thing is needed: The will or desire to use it. And if you seriously use it, I can guarantee that it will work miracles in your life.

Sitting Quietly Doing Nothing

EXCERPT FROM THE MAGICAL MIND BY IMRE VALLYON

Sitting Quietly Doing Nothing refers to every action you do. It is another way of saying: Do what is necessary, but do it without an ego. You walk quietly doing nothing. You eat quietly doing nothing. You perform all actions quietly doing nothing.

“Doing nothing” means that the ego does nothing; whatever is done is just done. You do things without the ego being involved. You just do it because it needs to be done.

“Quietly” doesn’t mean that you don’t talk; it simply means action with Inner Stillness. When you are sitting, walking, talking, or performing any action “quietly”, that Inner Stillness and Unity remains.

Just as with all of these methods, this practice is twofold: You sit down and meditate on it, and you engage in the practice throughout the day. All throughout the day, you remain in Inner Stillness. You sit, walk, talk, and act “quietly”.

Suppose you have to wash the dishes, then you wash the dishes. You just do it; there is no ego involved. That is “doing nothing.” When we engage the ego, then all action is doing something. It is “I,” the ego, doing it, and it becomes very important. In this way, however, all action is “doing nothing”.

Sitting Quietly Doing Nothing simply means that the Self only IS. If you understand this method and practice it continually, then suddenly you will realize that the Self only IS and everything else is simply being done. The whole of Creation is like this: The Self only IS, and everything else in Creation is running automatically. Similarly, in your life, the Self only IS, and everything you do is just done automatically. When you disengage the ego, it still gets done, and then you realize that the Self only IS.

There has never been anything else but the Self, which means that “you” don’t exist! Your existence is a delusion of your ego. You say, “I am,” but that is simply the illusion produced by the ego. The ego says, “Hey, I am!; and I am separate from those other silly egos.” Your mind says, “I am separate from those other silly minds.” Your body says, “I am separate from those other silly bodies.” But actually, you don’t exist at all. The real thing which exists is the Self. The Self only IS.

As you practice this method, you will realize that you existed as a temporary, illusionary creation of your own ego. Then you will suddenly realize that what really exists inside you is an Immortal Being, a Timeless, Spaceless, Transcendental, Unconditioned, Absolute, Indescribable Being! That is the Self, which is what you really are! You switch from a temporary ego-creation into an Eternal Reality, a Timeless Absolute Condition.

Whatever happens to you, whatever you are doing, just remind yourself: Sitting Quietly Doing Nothing. This means that the action gets done through you. You are simply the agency through which it can be done. If you can live that all throughout the day, then by the end of the day, you will realize that the Self only IS. Everything still gets done. We still eat, but the cooks don’t say, “I cooked it.” They say, “It was cooked, and we ate.” The Self was the only thing which did all these things. Everything, from the biggest sunbursts to every atomic action, is only the action of the Self. The Self only IS; there is no active principle in the whole of Creation except the Self.

This is the amazing realization of this Path: You are simply an agent of the Self, through which the Self does what it does. The Self needs to do this, so it is done. It is important for the Self that you eat, so you eat. In this temporary Creation, it has been so ordained that you put socks on, so it is important for the Self that you put socks on. When, in the future Creation, it is no longer required to have socks, the Self won’t require you to have socks, so you won’t have socks. The Self only IS, and we exist as executives of Its Will, by which things are done. That is all.

Sound

EXCERPT FROM THE ART OF MEDITATION BY IMRE VALLYON

Every sound—even a physical sound—makes a pattern. And that is where the science comes in: There are thousands of mantras that produce thousands of patterns with different qualities. The quality of love, the quality of joy, the quality of peace, the quality of expansion, and so on. And these qualities can be combined scientifically to produce any desired effect. There is nothing you cannot achieve through Mantra Science. Any physical, astral, mental, or spiritual accomplishment is at your disposal, once you understand this Science.

It is very important to understand that this is a science, one that can be demonstrated within your own consciousness with consistency. The only differences will be the reactions or energy realities that are brought about in your system. The process will always be the same: You transcend the physical vibrations of the body, then the astral vibrations of the astral body, then the mental vibrations of the mind body, and then even the causal vibrations of the causal body, establishing yourself in the Soul vibration—all brought about by the power of Mantra.

The mantra has a tendency to go back to its source, which, as I mentioned previously, is the highest level of the Causal World. This secret was discovered thousands of years ago by the Eastern and Western Sages who used mantras in Hebrew, Sanskrit, Chinese, and Arabic. And they realized that the human consciousness could utilize this principle to return to the Divine. That one single discovery altered the whole approach to Spiritual Reality. The return trip to our Divine Source could then be made quickly and efficiently.

And making this return trip is what Mantra Science is about. On this inward journey you will first feel the mantra’s subtle energy, then its subtle intelligence, and then the essence behind it—the Universal Force, the Universal Shākti. This means that in its essence Mantra indicates that Shākti, the All-Pervading Cosmic Energy of Creation, resonates to sound frequency. In other words, it is Sound. The Jewish Kabbalah was based on the secret doctrine of Dabar, the ‘Word’ (or Mantra), and in Christianity there is the idea that “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” In other words, in the beginning was Mantra and Mantra was with God and Mantra was God. (But the bible says “was”, in the past. Actually it is, in the present. Mantra—the Word, the Name, the Power—was God and Mantra is God and Mantra will always be God.) And that is the realization that you will come to through the practice of meditation. Mantra is the All-Encompassing, All-Creative, Almighty Power of the Divine Word.

Accordingly, Mantra is actually that Power that created the Universe, is maintaining the Universe, and will dissolve the Universe. Here, the East has a much more profound understanding of reality. To the Easterner, everything in the Universe is made of light vibration. The original emanation from Divine Consciousness is like a Massive Energetic Field of Light, infinitely vaster than Shākti (which is the inferior energy that permeates Creation). It is called Parakundalini, the Supreme Kundalini, or Fohat. In the individual human being this energy is kundalini, since the human structure is the same as the cosmic structure, only on a minute scale. So the Supreme Power is already inside us in the form of kundalini. But actually that is only one of its expressions; in the occult sense it is all the life energy inside us: all the manifestations of Shākti, every single strand of energy, life, and vitality inside us on any level. Awakening us to that energy is the aim of the Science of Mantra and the Science of Meditation.

Inspired with the understanding of this Science, you will be filled with tremendous enthusiasm for meditation, with the realization that it is an incredible process, the most important thing you can do in your day. Mantra has the power to transform you like nothing else can. You will see the results in your life. Through this Science, you can acquire the occult and psychic powers of the Yogis, gain Wisdom, Knowledge, and Enlightenment, and be able to manipulate Reality through the power of sound, the power of the Cosmic Word. You will have the Power of God—Brahma Shākti—as simple as that. That is the end result of this amazing Science.

The Caravan Moves On

EXCERPT FROM HEART TO HEART TALKS BY IMRE VALLYON

There is an old saying that goes, “the dogs bark and the caravan moves on.” This saying has profound implications to our lives and to the fact that we are here together at the moment. I know you can’t imagine how barking dogs and caravans have anything to do with you being here, but I’ll try to explain how they are related. This saying comes from the early nomadic tribes of the Middle East, from a long time ago when people did not live in cities and did not have an established rhythm of life, and moved all the time from place to place. The animals grazed and then the people moved on to the next place. These were the early Mongolian and Hungarian races and the early Jewish and Arab tribes, who lived a nomadic way of life. 

When you understand that saying, “the dogs bark and the caravan moves on,” you will understand the importance of being in the moment, the colossal significance of just being where you are. That’s what the saying refers to. Soon the caravan moves on—and you will have missed your chance, missed the meaning of your being. This is very profound. Most of you are missing every moment of your life because you do not know that soon the caravan will move on and you will be left behind. 

Most of us suffer from what’s called māyā, which means “the wrong perception of Reality”. It’s technically translated as “delusion” or “illusion”, but that’s not what it really means. It means that people miss the moment and they therefore miss out on Eternity. Most people are under the delusion that they’re going to live forever in this physical body, in this Physical World, and they live as if they will live forever. You set yourself up in a business or a job, in a particular environment, and you think it is going to be maintained exactly like that until the end of time. But, of course, the basic fact of life is that the average person doesn’t live for more than seventy years or if they’re lucky eighty years or if they’re very lucky ninety years. But at some age, you will suddenly realize that the caravan has moved on and left you behind. 

This false idea that we have of reality—that it is going to stay exactly like it is forever—is actually an illusion of our physical brain consciousness. If people realized that the caravan, in fact, will soon be moving on for them, then they would actually wake up and start thinking about the meaning of life and what they are supposed to be doing, because there is not much time to do it. Then, they would realize the awesome significance of every moment of their existence, the importance of being completely, one hundred percent in the moment.

The Death Experience

EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 19, HEAVENS AND HELLS OF THE MIND BY IMRE VALLYON

I am standing on the sea shore. A ship is starting for the ocean. I watch her go until she fades from the horizon. Someone says, “She is gone.” Gone where? The loss of sight is in me, not in the ship. At the moment someone says, “She is gone,” others are watching her coming. Other voices say, “Here she comes!” Such is death. 
~Anonymous 

Death is a beautiful experience. It is birth that is painful. There is no pain or suffering in the process of death. In fact, no matter how much you were suffering before death, at the moment of death you are released from suffering and anguish. Death is a change, a transition, not an end or termination. It is like going out of one room, through a door into another room. This “going through the door” is death.

If you are an ordinary person dying a natural death, you may experience any of the following sensations:
• Going through a door, a passageway, a tunnel, a vacuum, a hole or a funnel.
• Falling into a cave, a pit or a well.
• Rushing through or falling headlong at an incredible speed, from darkness into Light. This is almost like a time-warp or going through a black hole.
• Going rapidly down a path in darkness, at the end of which you see a point of light which increases to a brilliance as you emerge. 

If you are dying a natural death you may also hear sounds. The tunnel experience is visionary (from darkness to Light), while this death experience is auditory (from sounds to Silence). You may hear any number of sounds: loud popping in your head, ringing in your ears, roaring, drums, banging noises, the opening and shutting of doors, whistles, shouts, cymbals, bells, flutes, harps, the “swirling of many waters”, tides, musical instruments, thunder, and so on. Colours may also be seen. All of this you can experience also in astral projection and yogic meditation. 

Many people do not experience the above sensations. Rather, they have a moment of “unconsciousness” and then suddenly find themselves outside the body, looking down upon it. 

The situation is altogether different for a Yogi or a Mystic, for a person who is attuned to Higher Consciousness, Mystical Experience or Cosmic Consciousness. These people do not experience death as ordinary people do, but leave the body without a break in consciousness.

There is no need to fear death, as it holds no pain or terror. The actual death experience is painless and pleasant. You merely step outside your physical body. That is all.

The Magic of No-Thinking

EXCERPT FROM THE MAGICAL MIND BY IMRE VALLYON

This no-thinking is the source of all Power, all Knowledge, all Bliss. It is the Highest State of Being. It is that which is before you. When all activity ceases, there is That. That is So. That is Such. It is inexpressible. It is That which you are looking for. It is That which you have been searching for all your life.

That is not a conceptual thought. It is not at all a thought in your mind. It is different from all forms. When you stop conceptual thinking and forget all your anxieties, worries, fears, hopes, wishes, and strivings, That appears on its own, because That is already there. That is your Self. That is Reality. You are That. That is uncomplicated by thoughts, desires, moods, and patterns. That is not covered by forms, constraints, imaginings, or restrictions of any kind. That Self is One. To remain in that Self is to abide in the Fundamental Reality, in That is So, That is Such, That which always Is.

Who am I? Is there an answer? Do not “meditate.” Watch the mind. Thoughts will disappear when everything comes to a standstill. What is left is Truth, which is your Self. Without duality, all things are One.

The mind hates doing nothing. The mind hates Emptiness. The mind will do anything to avoid its own natural state of Silence and Emptiness. This is why it is so difficult to empty the mind. Emptiness of mind is the door to the Fullness of Consciousness. You must empty your cup before it can be filled with the Golden Liquid of Enlightenment.

Nothing is the Mother of Everything. It is No-Thing, Emptiness.

When your mind begins to abide in No-Thing (no thought, no associations, no desires, no chatter, no commentaries; just Silence, Stillness, Emptiness), then it is possible to really experience What Is.

Close your eyes. Just relax your mind and let go. Abide in the space where your awareness naturally is.

Where do you abide? Where is your Space? Is there an inner and outer space? Investigate now.

Your mind is like a strange river, and your thoughts are like logs of wood floating down upon it. Let your thoughts drift by. Do not engage them. Just watch them drift by.

The Path

EXCERPT FROM THE SEDONA TALKS BY IMRE VALLYON

You have to understand that all your life you have been conditioned to work from the level of your personality. You have worked with the idea that you have to conquer the world, conquer other people, master something or another, or manipulate a situation or a person to get somewhere. This is fine on the personality level—it is how you get along in the world—but it does not work in Spiritual Life! It is a total hindrance in one’s journey towards the Light. You cannot manipulate your way towards the Light! Even if you are the most brilliant manipulator on this globe, the Light will not respond to you whatsoever, nor will a true Spiritual Teacher take you as a pupil. No true Teacher will take a manipulating type as a pupil.

This may be difficult to understand for those people who have brilliant minds, brilliant careers, success. They are successful because they are clever in their minds, and in the world that is fine. For success in the world you need to have a bright mind, and you need to be able to manipulate money, people, resources, abilities. On a worldly level that is what you do, but the Spirit does not respond whatsoever to such things, and neither will a true Spiritual Teacher. Anybody who teaches you otherwise is a fake; no real Spiritual Teacher, angel, god, or truly Divine Person will encourage your ego one iota. No real Teacher will ever puff you up or make you proud, or tell you that you are such a wonderful person or so highly evolved. Nor will any real angel or enlightened spirit ever tell you that.

If you hear such things from a spirit or from a teacher, fly as fast as you can; that teacher is a fake! True Teachers will not bolster up your ego; they will squash it! They will demolish it completely.

It is important to understand why this is so. There is nothing wrong with the ego; it is because we have egos that we can live in the world and do things in the world. But the Spirit does not respond to the ego. If you want to even remotely approach the Spirit within you, you have to become humble, simple, natural. The true disciples don’t go about and say that they are great. They don’t set themselves up as special creatures who have been chosen by the great This or That. No, they have a simplicity, a simple beingness, a simple naturalness. They are in the world but not of the world. They don’t want the world’s glamour, the name and the fame and all that goes with it, for it is a hindrance to the Path. They work from simple beingness, just being as they are.

The Path comes from inside yourself; it is not imposed from the outside. In previous ages there were conditions laid down before you could even approach the Spiritual Path. They told you that you had to be vegetarian; that you couldn’t smoke; that you could have no sex, no family, no job, no work, no fun, nothing. You went into a cave and you meditated, or you went into a monastery or a nunnery, or out into the desert or some desolate condition, and you meditated. You had to renounce the normal, natural, human self before you even started!

Jesus said that it’s not what goes into your mouth that is important, but what comes out of it. What you say, what you think, what you feel, what you are—this is what is important! It is no longer important to go into a monastery or a nunnery. We don’t have to be converted to Tibetan Buddhism. We don’t have to become Hindu yogis. We don’t have to become Zen monks. We don’t have to become anything other than what we are. To be what you are is exactly the Plan. If you are married, that is fine; if you are not married, that is fine. Wherever you are, you start. You are the Path—the beginning, the middle, and the end of it.

The Power of Thought

EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 12, HEAVENS AND HELLS OF THE MIND BY IMRE VALLYON

There is one fundamental truth that is the core idea of this book, and that is the fact of Being and the power of thought. Your Being is the sum total of your evolutionary attainment, your stature in the Universe. It is what you are as a result of aeons of unfoldment. You are according to the evolutionary unfoldment of your Being, and you experience the harvest of your thoughts.

Thought is the creative force of your life. How important thinking is, and how we do not realize it! Your thoughts create your environment and your experiences in this life, here in this world, and in the after-death conditions on the Astral and Mental Planes. When you “die”, your experience will be the direct result of your thoughts in this life (or rather, since there is only one Life, your life-span in this temporary body).

I wish to say this supreme truth: 

You created your own circumstances in this life by the power of your thoughts, as did your family (as a group karma), your religion, your tribe, race or nation, and Humanity itself.

How foolish it is to blame your neighbour, God, the church or the government for your miseries or the miseries of your family, race, colour, tribe, nation or religion. You created it all—you and your group, and nothing else. 

The Universal Intelligence 

Your suffering does not come from an avenging, bloodthirsty Jehovah-God punishing you. It is a breaking of the Law of the Mind, which God instituted in Compassion and Love.

Every aspect of Mind has its own Laws, ordained by the Universal Intelligence, God. It is the breaking of these Laws, or our ignorance of them, that causes our suffering! The concept of punishment and fear of God came from the idea of God as the father figure, the cruel Judge, but whoever invented that idea did not experience God!

In Mystical Consciousness and Nirvanic Consciousness we experience God as a Being of Infinite Love, Compassion and Understanding. We experience a Being of Light “in whom there is no darkness at all”.

Three Schools of Spirituality

EXCERPT FROM HEAVENS AND HELLS OF THE MIND BY IMRE VALLYON

The Path of Yoga

The first school believes that everything below the Buddhic Plane is imperfect, and therefore seeks to escape from it. This is the Path of Yoga.

The Path of Zen or Tantra

The second school believes that although it is true that, at this stage of Evolution, the Physical, Astral, and Mental Planes are imperfect, the Divinity inherent in all things should be brought down and manifested in them. That is, one should see the Transcendental Reality in the passing, temporary, evolutionary forms. This is the Path of Zen or Tantra.

This second school of spirituality does not negate the world. It seeks the awareness of immortality and to transcend the ego, but with a free and voluntary participation in the activities of the Three Worlds for the sake of helping Evolution. This is what Jesus meant when He said to be in the world, but not of the world.

They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Thou has sent me into the world, even as have I also sent them into the world. John 17:16,18.

This is done through Compassion. In the East it is called the Path of the Bodhisattva. The essential problem is not life in this world, but the ego, which causes separation, disharmony, and disunity from all other selves and from the environment.

The Path of Gnosis

There is also a third School of Spirituality, which wants to escape altogether beyond the Seven Cosmic Physical Planes to the Cosmic Astral Planes. This is the Path of Gnosticism or Gnosis, the Path of the Pratyeka Buddha.

What is the Heart?

EXTRACTS FROM CHAPTER 20, HEAVENS AND HELLS OF THE MIND BY IMRE VALLYON

What is the Heart? 

The Heart is not the heart in your physical body. It is a psychic-spiritual Heart located near the physical heart, in the subtler dimensions.

The Heart is your Centre and Source, your Togetherness and Stability.

The Heart is the Seat of your Soul, the repository of the Immortal Spirit-Spark within you.

The Heart is the true Heaven.

God dwells in the Heart. …
The Holy Spirit also dwells in the Heart.
The Second Aspect, the Christ is also found in the Heart….

The Heart is the Seat of the Divine Self, Atman.

The Heart is Existence, Consciousness and Bliss, Sat-Cit-Ananda.

The Heart is Love, Joy and Radiating Power.

The Heart is the State of Unity.

The Heart is the All, but is found only by attention to the within, by a returning to the centre of our Being.

Writing Heavens and Hells of the Mind

BY IMRE VALLYON

You might be interested to know how one of my books came to be written. You might imagine a scene with the author spending long hours in a library, collecting data from hundreds of books and innumerable authors, or taking university courses in psychology, philosophy or theology, or having a comfortable room at home with thousands of books for reference from which to spin this wonderful tale.

Such an image could not be further from the facts. This book has been written in hotels, motels, boarding houses, bed and breakfast places, private homes, on trains, buses, aeroplanes and boats, and while sitting on the grass in the countryside. Various parts were written in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Hungary. This pattern of moving about the globe has been my life. 

When I write or teach, I do so by Inspiration. I do not research any topic, nor do I have a definite plan or prepared notes. The Inspiration flows by itself from Higher Consciousness. The material comes from Causal Consciousness, from Superconsciousness (the Wisdom-Mind), or from Cosmic Consciousness.

Inspiration is a Latin word which means “to breathe in”. It refers to the physical breath process. When one is under the spell of true Inspiration it does affect the breathing. Quite literally, the breath is drawn into oneself. When I am lecturing, the breath (Prana, the life-force) becomes more concentrated within me. At the same time I become more abstracted from my environment, yet on another level more one with it. It is a curious phenomenon.

Another peculiar fact is that, when I am writing or lecturing, an energy-shift takes place. The people around me are bathed in a field of Energy, a Higher Consciousness, in which they see and know things more clearly than they normally would. People who have attended many of my talks can feel these Energy fields around me as I speak. Not only am I changed, but they are changed also, to the degree that they can respond to this Higher Energy. When I speak from Superconsciousness the Energy is definitely more intense and concentrated than when I speak from Causal Consciousness.

As I write or lecture, quotations are given to my mind. Within the flow of Inspiration—which is my own Higher Mind in sympathetic vibration with the Cosmic Mind—references are given to what other Mystics and Masters have said about a particular facet of Truth. This is why I cannot provide the exact source of these quotations. I quote the fact, the truth, the idea, and usually do not know what book it comes from. In the stream of Inspiration, such physical details do not seem relevant. Nor do I have time to check the quotations in libraries, as I never go near them. I have other things to do.

Another curious fact is that, so far as spiritual truths are concerned, I perceive the ancient languages as living realities. My consciousness perceives, in a deep and profound sense, what the ancient words mean—their original meanings, before those meanings became lost through centuries of ignorance and misuse.

I have no education to speak of. My native tongue is Hungarian. I did not finish school in Hungary, as at fifteen years of age I emigrated to Austria and then to New Zealand. I attempted to finish school in New Zealand, but my English was poor. That is the extent of my formal education.

Since I was very young, however, I have had all kinds of unusual experiences relating to the inner worlds, the higher planes, other states of consciousness, and so forth. But I do not have a fixed mind in matters of spiritual truths. I cannot ever say, “This is it, this is the final truth or answer,” since I know of no boundary or limit. My consciousness is always in a state of expansion, of limitless formulation.

Spiritual truths are real to me. They are not just intellectual ideas, hypotheses or theories. They are as factual as the trees, the sky, the Sun and the Moon, so I do not have to struggle to accept spiritual realities. God to me is a fact, the Christ is a fact, the Soul is a fact, reincarnation is a fact, mystical experience is a fact. I have no doubts about such things. I simply know them, live them, intimately, by a primordial Consciousness, with which I was born. Spiritual realities are as natural as water to drink or food to eat.
