What is beyond this world that’s better than our world? Everything that we can imagine and can’t imagine. Once we experience it, we know. No one else can really tell us. But we have to be persistent in that, and we have to be truly sincere; otherwise, no one else can do it for us. In the same way, no one else can replace you to work at the UN office, and then you get paid for it. It’s the same as no one else can help us eat and then we get satisfied.
Beyond our world, there are many different worlds. We can just give an example like the one a little bit higher than we are, which we call the Astral World in Western terminology. In the Astral World, they even have hundred or more different levels. And each level is a world in itself, and it represents our level of understanding. It’s just like when we enter a university, each grade as we go through the university represents our increased understanding of the university’s teaching, and then slowly we move to graduation. In the Astral World, we can see many kinds of so-called miracles and we can probably also be tempted by miracles and probably work miracles as well. We’ll be able to heal the sick and sometimes see things that other people can’t see. We’ll have at least six kinds of miracle power. We can see beyond the ordinary boundaries. We can hear beyond the limits of space. Distance doesn’t make any difference to us…
We all heard that in different kinds of religious Bibles or Scriptures, it is mentioned that there are seven heavens, there are different levels of consciousness. There is the Kingdom of God within, there is Buddha Nature, etc. These are some things that are promised beyond this world. So, what lies in the Kingdom of God? Why should we bother about the Kingdom of God if we already have enough work to do in the world and we have a job, we have secure houses, and we have enough loving relationships, etc.? Precisely, because we already have all these, we should be concerned about the Kingdom of God. It's actually just some level of higher consciousness. In scientific terms, we can say, it is a different - a higher level of knowledge, a higher level of wisdom. And this we can have access to, should we know how.
I guess it is just like the law of physics. You want to send some rocket into, beyond the gravity, you have to have a lot of pushing power behind that, and also when it flies very fast it also emanates some light. So I guess when we go fast into the beyond, we can radiate some Light also, and also we can hear the Sound. The Sound is the kind of Vibrational Power that pushes us into the higher levels. Now, there is a facility within us which is faster than any UFO can comply. That is our own soul. We call it spirit sometimes. Never goes out of order, except when we want to damage it by violating the universal precepts, violating the harmony of heaven and Earth, which is very simple to avoid.
Now, if we go a little bit beyond this level to the Second Level, what we call Second, just for the sake of simplifying matters. The Second Level - then we will probably have a lot more abilities than the first one, and including the miracles. But the most striking achievement we can have at the Second Level is that, the eloquence, and the ability to debate. And no one seems to be able to conquer a person who has achieved the Second Level because he has tremendous power of eloquence, and his intellect is at the peak of his power. In India, people call this level Buddhi means intellectual level. And when you achieve Buddhi, you become a Buddha. It's not yet the end of the Kingdom of God, there are the Third, the Forth, the Fifth Levels!KAnd beyond that, there are many aspects of God, which are difficult to understand. Once we experience it, then we know.
We may have experiences one time, for a couple of times or some days due to the power of that a Master who experienced God. Then we might see some Light or hear some Sound, very naturally without our effort, but in most cases, it doesn't last very long. So, we have to be persistent in that, and we have to truly be sincere.
