We are resting near a fire under tall, dense fir trees. Nearby, a dozen meters away, there is a place where one can feel the Embrace of Lin inside His Mahadouble.
Subtlest Divine Fire-Light arising from the Abode of the Creator consumes and dissolves one in Itself — it is enough just to open the arms of the spiritual heart towards Lin. And then with His embrace Lin submerges one into His Universal Heart, into the deepest Quietness!
“I am so glad that you decided to publish a collection of Our biographies, which gives living examples of the methodology of how virtually every common person can begin striving for the cognition of God and after some time merge into Me, into all of Us Who represent the Primordial One and constitute His Essence!”
“Lin! Tell us please about Yourself! How did You attain Divinity?”
“My first teacher was love…
“… I was born in the north of Korea. I was the only son of wealthy and noble parents. My mother lived in the state of tender love. She always radiated soft love and tenderness towards everyone. I grew in this field of hers.
“She died when I was only seven years old. To comfort Me, My father explained that every soul is immortal and that without a body the soul feels itself even better. I understood this… as a possibility to make My mother come back.
“I began to seek her, tried to see her as a soul, to embrace her, to feel her love. And I succeeded! She embraced Me gently and said:
‘If you feel sad and lonely, if you miss love, remember how much I love you and try to give your love to other people as I give love to you. Then love will always be with you, and you will never be alone! If you weep and ask for love, you can never be satisfied. All the love which you receive from others can end…, but love which lives in you never ends!’
“She embraced and stroked My body and filled the room with her love…
“I remembered those words all My life… And I tried to live as she taught. I lived radiating the light of love. People felt this light and wanted to be with Me… And I, thanks to radiating love to all creatures, learned to see beauty and harmony…
“Then beauty became My second teacher.
“Even in childhood, the state of attunement with sattva was natural for Me — the attunement with morning tenderness, with subtle light of the rising sun, with clear purity of morning freshness, with fragrance of flowers that fills the air, with singing of birds praising every new day. For Me it was the first step towards God in that incarnation, because it allowed Me to know subtle, tender states which cannot be found among the everyday concerns of people.
“Then in mergence with beauty, I began to enter a special state of the soul when My personal ‘I’ disappeared and I became beauty.
“I sought beauty and found it everywhere: in the sunset over the expanse of the sea when the evening fills everything with its warm calm, in the best works of art, in the patterns of natural landscapes…
“With time I developed a desire not just to merge with beauty, but to be in the state of constant mergence with it. And I wanted to find a teacher — a master of beauty who could reveal to Me its laws…
“… Soon My father sent Me to a Buddhist monastery for receiving education.
“There quietness became My third teacher.
“In that monastery there lived an old Chinese-Taoist. I liked to converse with him. He told Me about other lands. My world expanded beyond the monastery’s walls…
“Sometimes we sat together, and he suggested listening how in his distant native land water murmurs in a river… I did not hear how water murmurs, but I heard the quietness, which was below the ground.
“… The quietness was vast, transparent… It reached the place where the old Chinese lived years ago… Then the quietness appeared everywhere, inside and outside of Me…
“Often we sat so, immersed into inner quietness and calm. The entire vanity of the world remained outside, it could not penetrate into the quietness… It had no right to cross the border of the quietness of the heart filled with calm and love…
“… I liked to study, especially to study the scriptures kept in the monastery. They were priceless… I thirsted for knowledge and could absorb it as a sponge absorbs water.
“Then knowledge became My forth teacher.
“I got acquainted with a group of Buddhist monks, who taught Me a lot of new things. They were not spiritual Masters, but they told Me about their views and about some truths: about the principle of non-harming, serving others, etc. The acquaintance with them became an impulse for Me for further development; it awakened My interest to searching for spiritual Self-Realization. I sincerely wanted to find in life something higher, something that could give a higher meaning to life… I felt a need to seek a higher meaning of life, to realize it, and to tell others about it!
“I went to China and began studying art in a Buddhist monastery. Thanks to this, I soon met several monks who were not just followers of the religious tradition but spiritual seekers. Communication with them opened new horizons to Me.
“They had contacts with a spiritual center in China, which possessed serious spiritual knowledge and methods. Only few people were admitted to studying in this center — those capable of comprehending the higher knowledge and using it properly.
“When I learned about the existence of this center, I wanted very much to come to it.
“Only after being admitted to that center did I enter on the real path of developing Myself as a consciousness with the help of practical techniques.
“I mastered the initial stage of work, which included studying the principles of sattvic nutrition, cleansing the energy systems of the body, exercises for the body and for developing the ability of moving the concentration of the consciousness to various parts of the body.
“On the next stage, My instructor taught Me to flow out from the chest as love and to embrace the expanse around — the forest, the mountains… I embraced with Myself-heart the nature and for a long time stayed in this state. In this way I cognized calm much more fully.
“I grew as a consciousness in these states of calm, among the quietness of mountains.
“… But one day a new head was assigned to the monastery. The new order, established by him, was harsh. I was frightened by the thought that I had to spend all My life in this abode. I left and went traveling…
“Thus life became My fifth teacher.
“I learned a lot then. I visited different Taoist and Buddhist monasteries, looked at the life of people who lived there, at their joys and sorrows.
“I could easily make a living thanks to the knowledge gained in the process of studying. I could write a petition or suggest medicinal plants for curing different diseases, or perform any other work… I saw a lot of different people. I also cognized the love which can unite two souls — a man and a woman… I acquired invaluable experience of life, which allowed Me later to understand many things…
“One day I heard in the quietness a voice suggesting that I go home because My father was going to die soon.
“I came back but could not heal him… After his death I inherited great wealth.
“… I decided to build My own monastery, where I could unite all the best that I saw in My travels. I chose a place of amazing beauty and hired builders.
“Soon other people, inspired with My plans, joined Me. My friends and teachers also came to Me.
“I was burning with the idea of creating the most remarkable monastery! The work went on. I was proud of My creation!…
“Then humiliation became My sixth teacher.
“… A traveler came to the monastery…
“All who came to Me liked everything in the monastery. Proudly I showed them what had been done and told about My plans…
“But this guest looked around… and only shrug his shoulders…
“At the end he said:
‘The main thing is missing here: here there is no God!’
“… God talked to Me through the mouth of that man.
“… The traveler went away. And I remained… in the ruins of My pride…
“From that moment, I never allowed self-conceit to delude Me…
“I had wanted to create a beautiful abode — an abode of Love. But this could be done only with God, only for Him. And for whom had I been doing it?…
“Moreover, I forgot about meditations, which I considered unnecessary for the head of the monastery…
“And meditation became My seventh teacher.
“I set My goal to cognize the Primordial One! And I began seeking Him fervently! I forgot about the rest! Now I walked only to Him!
“Meditation became the means of overcoming the distance between Me and Him…
“And then He — Primordial, Omnipresent — allowed Me to feel Him!
“I was astonished… I merged with Him! I cognized the Primordial One!
“I submerged into Him again and again. I spent days and nights in the meditations of Mergence. I was amazed with His Greatness and Love!… I wanted only one thing: to stay in Him forever!… I strove to achieve that fullness of the state of Nirvana which would never end…
“… Then one day, when I was walking through the monastery, He began to show Me… the desolation which came over the monastery since the time when I dedicated Myself only to meditation…
“He showed Me My people… They spent their free time in all kinds of ways!…
“Lacking My attention, the monastery became similar to a withering young tree…
“The Primordial One reproached Me:
‘Let your love for Me sprout with love and care about every being! Only then will you become a Great Teacher! And now — be ashamed that you deprived My children of your love and care!…’
“Thus, care became My eighth teacher.
“… Since then, I had students, and they were numerous…
“… My further path was simple. ‘Under the weight’ of all those whom I supported with My palms, I submerged deeper and deeper into the Abode of the Primordial One — the Main Teacher for Me and for all people.
“And He told Me:
‘You have to go always only to Me! And I — in you — will go to other children of Mine: to those whom I entrusted to your care!’”
“Tell us: how did You teach them?”
“Love develops in souls through their help to other beings in everything good — in great and in small. Meditation techniques allow knowing something new, yet this new transforms into one’s beingness only through love-giving, love-service.
“So God taught Me.
“It is through care about My children, that I learned to feel and to see people as He does. I learned to look with His eyes — and to see a step which a concrete person can take right now. I never said: ‘Come here! Do so!’ I gave tasks that made the disciples take certain steps on transforming themselves. The disciples made decisions themselves. They made efforts themselves and achieved new stages in their development. The disciples were led only by their love for the Primordial One and by their love for all beings.
“I helped everyone who asked for My help and accepted My guidance.
“Some of My disciples paved with stones a trail to a pond — so that everyone walking this trail could enjoy handmade harmony… Or they taught meditation methods to other disciples… The task was always hard but accomplishable. One needed to collect all strength of the soul and to be burning with love — for making every such a step towards the Light.
“Not every disciple of Mine cognized the Primordial One, but everyone advanced on this Great Path.
“As one digs a well, I dug ‘dense layers’ of souls exposing their common Source, so that My disciples could satisfy their thirst for cognition.
“As one opens a window to let in the light, so I opened souls to the Eternal Light. And then this Light — through the opened hearts of My disciples — flowed outside to every being.
“And every Soul that achieved the Summit continued service from the Abode of the Primordial One. The end of the human Path became for such a Soul the Great Beginning of new Divine Beingness.
“… Thus I grew souls collecting wisdom of ages and sowing knowledge, so that the Primordial One may collect the fruits of wisdom.
“I gave love and sowed its seeds, so that the flowers of love with their fragrance may please everyone, so that its fruits may produce seeds and produce new shoots! I gave power to all who grew properly.”
“Tell us please how did You master materialization and dematerialization?”
“I never aspired to mastering materialization and dematerialization. I just merged with the Primordial Consciousness so deeply that My physical form became similar to a ‘protrusion’ of Its Abode into the material world. My body merged with the Primordial One so deeply that He could easily reproduce this corporeal appearance on the material plane in any corner — wherever He needed.
“I became united with the Ocean of the Primordial One. His Will manifested through My body. His words came from My mouth. His eyes looked from My body. His Wisdom became My Wisdom. His Calm became My Calm. His Love became My Love. His Care became My Care.
“… Man’s flesh has to be free from the ‘I’, so that He may enter it. This is realized through the great mystery of Mergence.
“When an Individuality, which has achieved Perfection, dissolves in the Primordial One and remains in Him, then the body does not belong to sansara anymore.
“The eyes which look in the depths of the Whole allow the Primordial One to look through the eyes of the body.
“The Arms of the Consciousness which gained the ability to act from the Primordial One allow the arms of the body to be filled with the power of the Most High.
“And then your boundless Heart becomes connected forever with the United Heart of all of Us.
“All this opens an Entrance, through which other consciousnesses can flow into the Primordial Ocean and become It…
“Buddhists call this Nirvana, the state of Buddha, Liberation.”
“Lin, please tell us a few words for beginners…”
“Let the quietness of morning calm and freshness touch every heart! In Korea this is called choson: this is the name of My country, the name of My nation…
“I also want to tell you about working with the arms of the consciousness. I, as you did, always paid special attention to working with the arms of the consciousness in teaching students.
“What can an armless person do on the Earth? Not much. It is the same with living in subtle worlds: to live there, to help, to work, to love, one necessarily needs developed arms of the consciousness!
“The arms of the material body grow from the chest, where the anahata chakra is located. In the beginning, the spiritual heart resides in this ‘chest’ as in a cage. “With the aspiration to give — the heart breaks free from this ‘cage’. And from this moment the proper growth of the consciousness begins; gradually such a soul becomes a large and free spiritual heart. Its organs for performing actions, as it is with the material body, are the arms of the consciousness. These arms are coessential to it. They, too, consist of love.
“The ability to act with the arms of the consciousness determines one’s ability to move through the eons of the multidimensional universe; later it determines also the firmness of Mergence with Me and staying in Me. ‘Armless idlers’ cannot stay in My Universal Depths: they cannot dissolve themselves in Me: they just pop up to the surface like corks…
“God is the Greatest Worker in the universe, and millions of His Arms, growing from the United Universal Heart, constantly take care of all living creatures: embrace, caress, stroke, support, feed, heal, dissolve, defend, help, teach…
“To learn to work with the arms of the consciousness now, while possessing a body, is much easier than after disembodiment. It is so because when working with the arms of the consciousness one may feel their connection with the arms of the material body. Moreover, if the arms of the body are skillful, strong, able, it significantly helps to develop the arms of the consciousness.
“… The size, form, and functions of the Divine Arms of the Consciousness can be quite different.
“They can be Rays of Atmic Light emanating from the Abode of the Creator, for example in case of healing — to make a pointed, powerful effect.
“Or they can be big Arms of a Divine Mahadouble, which can be stretched to any distance, which can reach any corner, any place on the planet’s surface to help those who need help.
“With the Arms of the Consciousness stretched from the Abode of the Primordial Consciousness, one can heal by bringing the ‘Curtain’ close to the patient’s body and then accurately, with the tips of the Fingers, cleanse the diseased parts of the patient’s organism.
“The Arms can be similar to a shining Ray of Joy and Bliss — when one needs to support instantly someone in their good deeds.
“The Divine Arms can caress, can submerge souls into the Heart of the Absolute, can fill them with calm and power, can give rest to tired souls who aspire to Me.
“God works hard without cease! This constitutes His Life. Through this, among other ways, His Evolution goes on!”
* * *
“Meditation implies feeling His presence constantly.
“Meditation is a means of entering Him.
“Meditation is a means of merging with Him, when an individual soul can touch Him, know Him, dissolve itself in Him.
“The state of the True Beingness is a disappearance of everything but Him. It is the state of His Life, His Love, His Evolution…
“Life in Me is Infinite Freedom! Consciousnesses living in Me are not shackled by the manifested world.
“In order to become Me, one must learn to be free here, on the Earth. A soul accustomed to the life of a slave simply cannot merge into Me!
“I am Infinite! I experience My Beingness in all its fullness. To merge into Me means to live My Life; it is not about getting for oneself a nook in paradise.
“Live My Life in all fullness!
“And one more thing:
“One has to go to Perfection firmly and resolutely! I will guide everyone who is ready to work like this; I will help this person to fully cognize Tender Tao and become It!”
