On the Forbidden Letters by Daniel Srsa

I read the letters and they mean nothing in particular. It appears to be an aftereffect of "De Vinci Code". That's all. It's more or less a concoction of esoteric truths that lack the substance. There are many truths said there but they lack any meaning because they have no context. The letters seem to advocate an atheistic approach to reality, which is wrong. Bible in general and New Testament in particular are far from perfect and it's a common knowledge that the Gospels, as well as the non-biblical apocrypha were written long after Christ's departure yet that doesn't mean Christ was not a great spiritual master of his time. He was one of many great souls that came with the message of love for benefit of humanity. He did not come to create new religion. It's his followers who establish the Christian Church. Christianity as such has very little in common with teachings of Christ. It was an invention of Roman emperors who have seen in it an opportunity to consolidate the ailing Roman empire. Later, their successors used it for their own personal gain. That is history of not only Christianity but every religion. When the man is alive they persecute him but when he is dead they build a religion on his grave. Teachings of Christ have nothing in common with Church - they are poles apart. Church neither understands the Bible nor does it care to understand what's said in there. It's all the foreign language not only to the Church Fathers but even to those who wrote such letters and imagine that God is non-existent and Christ was just an imaginary figure. It's simply wrong. Who do they think is responsible for all this Creation?

As I said, there are many esoteric truths there but I doubt that the authors of those letters really know what they are talking about. This "stone", "kundalini" and "alchemy" they refer to, all point to self-realization and God-realization, which is in biblical language simply referred as salvation. It's common knowledge that physical alchemy or chemistry as we normally call it, is only a by-product of a real alchemy, which is the spiritual alchemy. Even the so-called "philosopher's stone" refers to the souls that are fully realized and can act as the catalyst of the human transformation. In this respect, Jesus, together with many others, past and present had the capacity to act as "philosopher's stone"; hence he was a great alchemist. A man that has fully realized his human potential is a divine being (in letters referred as Shakti power etc). That is what Jesus was. But Prophet Mohamed or Buddha were also the same, together with many other less known perfect human beings. The subtle body of man, which is referred in the holly scripture as "Son of Man" is simply the soul of man. The soul is subtle body because it's the future body of man (as per well known karmic principles or in biblical terms "as you sow, so shell you reap"). The soul is that unrealized potential that must mature in time and yield a fruit as per its own deserts. There is no secret here. This soul can be awaken through such "alchemical" process, which is neither kundalini nor any other hidden power but only love. We should remember the first and the only true commandment Jesus spoke about and which is "Love thy Lord with all your heart, body and mind". All the rest of Gospels only try to incalculable the same message. But what the mind knows about the path of love?

Love is the true alchemy and the true "kundalini" or "stone". It's not just a feeling, but the most potent force of the universe. It's the vehicle of creation and evolution. Without it, the universe would dissolve in an instant. Without it, man will not be able to draw even the single breath. The "feeling" of love is only its lowest common denominator. The entire creation consists of the varying degrees of concentration of that love. What's love? It's the gravitational power of attraction and without it, there would be no universe, Earth, man or whatever. Love is the Sun, moon and the entire universe. It's all love in its various manifestations. You can call that love God, you can call it whatever you want, but this is what it is. God gives his life so that we can have life. Can we reciprocate and give our life so that He can live. That's salvation. Salvation is to merge in God, to live in God's will, which is pure love. Unless we surrender our ego and our separate existence, we remain in the cage of our limited mind. Mind is an enemy of soul. As long as we calculate, think, theorize, argue etc., the mind dominates the soul. As long as mind dominates soul, there is no love. As long as there is no love, there is no evolution. Only the agony of love will surmount those obscure superstitious beliefs and hard ingrained mental concepts. No pain, no gain. No love, no life. Unless we can let our limited mind and our limited consciousness go, we will never realize that hidden potential within, which is nothing but the soul (love). It's our future. This is salvation - to realize God within. It's said that Kingdom of God is within. Jesus said so, Buddha said so, Mohammed said so, Vedic scriptures say so, Tao says so etc. etc. Find it and you will gain life eternal. It's also said "Attain Kingdom of God and all those other things will be added unto You". Find love and you got it all. Get the Giver and all the gifts are yours. Conquer your mind and you have conquered the universe. Conquer death and you have gained life eternal. How can one get life immortal? Certainly not through this physical body, as the writers of those letters try to imply. Body is mortal. It must die. All that's born must die. To believe anything to the contrary is to be deluded.

Only soul is immortal but do we believe we have it? Soul is more real than the body but we do not know that. It's the subtle, incomplete body. It will be born only when it's fully matured. As long as mind is alive, soul is dead. Only love has the potential to overcome the dualism and conflicts of the mind. Beyond that limited consciousness of the mind is the mind divine. Beyond those rumbling thoughts is the silence of our soul, which is part of the divine being. Beyond this egotistical consciousness is the universal consciousness - the knowledge of the entire universe resides beyond boundaries of our limited mind. This is the true alchemy and true kundalini. Yogis never knew the power divine. Yogic exercises are limited to material benefits to the body and mind. They have nothing to do with soul or God. Religion means "union with God". It's the true alchemy. And the real "philosopher's stone" and real alchemist is a fully realized human being. It's a human being that's not limited by its personal mind but has an access to that divine consciousness and that divine mind we call soul. It's a human being that has given his separate existence and his personal life so that God can live. Jesus said "I am in the father and the father is in me". He also said, "I came not to do my Will but the Will of the one who sends me". It means he is on the conscious level one with God. He lives in Will of God. He has no personal desires, no personal thoughts, no personal beliefs. He doesn't live according to his limited mental concepts but according to that universal truth. He and the father are one - they share the same divine mind, we call our soul. That's true alchemy - to let go all mental concepts, all inhibitions, all duality, injustice and immorality and accept love as the only guidance. Love is the supreme reason. It's an unlimited reason as opposed to limited reason of the mind. Compared with soul, the rumblings of the mind are no better than barking of a dog. And who understands what dog barks about? If we keep on going like this - guided by loveless mind, we will never realize that potential within. We will never know the truth.

It's true that macrocosm is within the microcosm and vice versa. It's the fractal nature of reality - "as above so below, as without, so within". Outer universe is projection of the inner universe. All mystics know that. There are suns, moons and stars within every one of us but as Jesus said "light shines within a man yet darkness comprehended it not" As we close our eyes all we see within our mind is darkness, yet this darkness is a veil beyond which light dwells. And in that light the is entire creation - the universe of all the universes together with their Creator. God is within but "unless your eye becomes single, you will not see that light, you will not see that universe within and you will not see God". now, what's that single eye? It's nothing but what's called third eye in Vedic scriptures or Buddhism or a "dark spot" in traditions of Islam. A single eye is the inner eye. The single inner eye is an effect of two outer eyes. Reality is 3 dimensional. Two outer eyes are eyes of the mind. They create dual picture. The inner eye is single. It's an eye of the soul. It's the eye of love. It's only eye with which we can realize God within and thus merit the life eternal. If one merges with the God, then such person is a personification of God (my father and I are the same). God is immortal. This is true immortality, true alchemy, true "stone" or kundalini. This is not philosophy. It's reality. Man can become God if he can reciprocate his love - if he can surrender his life, his separation, his mind and ego. This is salvation - to become God but that's possible only with love. That's why we should love God with all our heart, body and mind. But how to love that unmanifested power we call God? Truth is that man cannot love God. He doesn't know if there is a God, much less who God is, so how can man love God? He cannot. It's a Kal Yuga. It's an age of darkness and ignorance when the only God we worship is our own mind. And as all the mystics and even yogis know - mind is an agent of that negative power, call it Kal, Devil or whatever you want but this is what mind is. We are all Devil's worshipers. We cannot love God as long as we love our minds. It's the mind that is a barrier between us and Him.

Man can love God only in a true age - the Sat Yuga or Golden Age, so we are not far off since this Kal Yuga ends soon (21.12.2012). But until then there is only one way to love God - through his human incarnations or personifications - and Jesus was one of them. That's why it's said that " you will not see the Kingdom of heaven except through me". Unless you love Jesus you cannot love God because Jesus and God are the same. They share the same consciousness. But the trick is that Jesus died long ago so to love him is not possible just as it is not possible to love God directly. Jesus is one with God now and he cannot help us. It's a deception to believe that we can love a person who died 2000 years ago. A woman cannot merry someone who lived 2000 years ago and much less can she have a child by him. Another saying of Jesus said that "He is the light and life of this world AS LONG AS HE IS IN THIS WORLD". We tend to overlook what doesn't suit our beliefs. Jesus is dead but his teaching is alive but who understands it? He cannot be anyone's savior now because he can save only those who loved him with all their hearts, mind and bodies in his own time. He also said "I will know my sheep and my sheep will know me" We are not his sheep, neither is he our shepherd. We are 2000 years out of place to be his sheep or for him to be our shepherd. So what's the clue to salvation then? How can this dead soul awake and overcome the limitations of our ego and mind. How can we gain salvation and life eternal. We cannot unless we know this alchemy, unless we find this holly Grail, which is nothing but pure and unalloyed love. If there is love in our hearts then we will utilize our life for the purpose it was given to us - we will search for a living incarnation of God. We will search for a living incarnation of Christ because such incarnation is always present amongst us. What kind of God would that be if he sends one Redeemer in 2000 years and all those souls living before or after him have no hope of salvation? If there was a need for a Redeemer than than it must be a constant need.

This is the true Quest for Holly Grail. Forget Hollywood and best-selling fictions. This is the true bloodline. It's a line that has no beginning or end because it's as old as creation. Jesus was one of them. The secret knowledge was imparted to Him by John the Baptist. He has awaken the dormant love within Christ the man. He has given him an opportunity to conquer limitations of his ego and become personification of God. Jesus passed on the secret of love to his disciples. Many were his followers. Prophet Mohamed gained his power through the same bloodline. There were many mystics in Islamic world and India who kept the Holly Grail alive but unfortunately for the West and so-called Christianity, this bloodline was driven underground and persecuted to extinction. Holly Grail is not in Scotland or France. More likely it's in Lebanon or India. It's all an imagination. Jesus wasn't married. He had no son or daughter. His sons and daughters were those who were one with him in the spirit. His disciples were his children, his wife, his father and his mother. The holly Grail is a living person, a living incarnation of God. It's a living Jesus. A person that's love incarnate. Only by merging in the person who is merged into God can we also merge and become one with God and thus attain life eternal. Only by loving with all our hearts, mind and soul the person, which loves God in the same way, can we love God and give life to our dead souls. That's the true alchemy of this Kal Yuga. Find the Savior or else you die when you die. You either attain the life everlasting or the everlasting shame that life has been wasted. And the writers of those letters waist their lives big time. They think that it is a game! If they think there is no God, then there is no God for them; hence there is no life eternal either. How can God know them if they do not know him?

There is nothing but mental rumbling in those letters - an endless search for arguments and intellectual gymnastics. Why this, why that? Who cares! If you give a lamp to a blind man he will still not find the way. Unless you read it with the same heart as the one who wrote it, it will all remain a big mystery to such unenlightened ones. What does mind know about the ways of the heart. They seek for perfection in an imperfect world. The divine truth is communicated directly (Sruti in Vedic literature). All the human communications are of second degree (Smriti in Vedic literature) because they are liable to duality, interpretation, doubts and corruption through the human mind. Hence such hair splitting and arguments will only obscure even more what is already obscured. All is possible in mind's eye but only one thing is certain in soul's eye. There can be only one thing that's real at the same time in the same place. You can go on analyzing and arguing about this and that for ever and at the end you are still not any closer than when you begun. But if you have a heart than all will be revealed in an instant. Christ did not baptize by the fire of "kundalini". He baptized by the "fire" of inner light, which is love! It's only an example to what distance one's mind can go just to justify its own selfish injustice. And the "stone" is the philosopher's stone that transmutes iron into gold. The philosopher's stone was Christ himself because he purified the mind and transformed death into life, ignorance into wisdom and beastly into divine. No one can gain salvation and immortality unless purified by such living "stone". And that's certainly not a "kundalini" stone but a stone of pure and unalloyed love. Only love has a power to transform even the worst sinner and the worst criminal into an instant saint and the very personification of all divine attributes. There is no wisdom in it. It's an old truth. Why do we want to invent new truths and change unchangeable? Why do we want to die?

They are right when they say that "stone" is in the body. Soul is in the body. God is in the body. The body is Universe of universes. Everything is in the body. What's body but the universe seen from outside? And what's universe but a soul seen from inside? One is a holographic projection of another. All differences are relative in space and temporary in time. In the end it's all the same. In the end it's all God. All else is a relative or temporary insanity (from which we will wake up on winter solstice 2012, which is the day of the Lord, when such inner or subtle stone must surface from the subtle (inner) realms into our everyday outer reality). The soul is the connection between an individual and all else. It's a link between man and God. It's love. There is nothing fictional about it. Unless duality is surmounted, unless the soul overcomes the mind then soul remains an unrealized possibility. It will never be born. That's what's meant by those utterances quoted at the beginning of their 5th letter. How can becoming omnipotent be anything but work of love and faith. Unless there is love and faith nothing can be accomplished. With at least a little bit of love and faith even our daily tasks will be impossible to accomplish.

I do not think it's wise to get entangled into physical discussion about the macrocosmic or relative space and microcosmic or quantum space because this will only open yet another Pandora's box, but they seek for the same kind of singular perfection in a dual and relative world as they seek in the holly scriptures. They have no understanding and cannot see that it's all the same because time within acts as space without and vice versa. Of course there are instant or parallel (simultaneous) actions on quantum level because quantum level is a gravitational level and what's the gravity but an angular potential - a force of attraction that we in our everyday language call love (or fear if it is a repulsion - an opposite of attraction). Gravity is singular or resonant point of space/time duality. It's the very force of creation. It's love. Mind works on the level of space/time division. Soul is a gravitational manifestation; hence it's beyond bounds of either space or time - but only until winter solstice 2012 when time ends and such duality becomes invalid. Than all that's left is that gravitational truth or truth on the quantum level. What's truth on gravitational level but love. It's only love that counts in the end. It's only love that's recognized in the court of the Lord. Then they go on explaining that unless one has so much energy, one cannot move the mountain. Have they already forgotten that there are moons and suns within every body? All is in the body. There is an infinite potential and an infinite energy within. What's the mountain? The universes can be moved with as little faith as a mustard seed.

They know not even of the power of the mind, never mind the power of love that's superior to it (light speed or dimensional difference) but they are right when they say unless one is deified. What follows afterwards is relative truth - a half truth, not a complete truth. When they refer to "beast" in us, it refers to our accumulated sins or karmas, which have to be burned in order for mind to become pure and transparent because only such pure mind isn't an obstacle to growth of soul (love) within. Yes, such awakening must go through the dark night of the soul and it's a pretty accurate description. What they do not tell is where "the beast" within us comes from. The beast is the mind. As long as we follow mind and not the heart we are no better then beasts. Even beasts have minds but they have no heart (love) - at least not that love that man is supposed to have. We are responsible for all actions of our mind. All our cravings and desires have a price. As long as we act independently we have to pay the price and in our ignorance our own actions are all but divine. They are beastly. It's only when we do not act independently but in concord with divine will that we do not incur a personal debt. In other words, unless we are same as Jesus was (one with the father) we will continue accumulating the sin; hence we will also have to pay the price. This principle of detachment and living in God's Will is very well explained in Bhagavad Gita and other Vedic literature. It's the essence of mystic teachings. As long as we act with ego and mind we are responsible but if we act with detachment (no desire) than we act in accord with the will of god - then we act on soul level and we are not responsible - it's God who is responsible for our actions in that case because we are only the instruments of God, who act according to His Will. Hence it's not necessary for a person to have a beast within himself. It's only an outcome of our past actions. If there is a beast within him, it doesn't mean there is a beast within a pure person. A beast is karmic debt that has to be paid. Devil must take his own (mind) and God will take his own (soul). A dark night of the soul is nothing but process of "losing" the mind. It's a divine blessing because after the mind is lost, only the soul (love) remains.

Ok, that would be my answer but as I said this whole correspondence has no scientific or the spiritual merit whatsoever. It's more of an aftereffect of the popularity of Da Vinci Code. Here and there it touches on the truth but all in all it's of no value whatsoever. It's all just a random speculation and at that a bad one because the writers of those letters are not even educated in the simple esoteric and spiritual truths. Every scholar of Veda, Buddhism or any esoteric or mystic teaching knows not only those few simple truths but much more than that. It's an imagination running wild with no foundations in truth except here and there. I even doubt genuiness of those letters. There is no secret society here but only one lost soul - perhaps an immature teenager. I do not wish to be harsh since i am nobody to judge anybody but that's the truth.

Kind regards,
