God, as we're taught, is omnipotent (having unlimited power), omniscient (the capacity to know everything infinitely) and omnipresent (being present everywhere at the same time). Is that something you can wrap your mind around? Conceptualize maybe, imagine maybe but to BE, KNOW and SEE these realities is beyond the mind's ability.
Mind knows, through it's intellectual senses, about matter, energy, space and time.
Let me ask, does the mind know the soul it's attached to? If you answer yes to this question please go back to the beginning of this note and ask yourself "am I consciously omnipotent, omniscient and omnipotent". Soul, being created by the Divine, holds these attributes as native. The mind simply can't even begin to.
If in our mind we don't know or even recognize soul (that divine part of our human experience) then how are we to learn about it. Have you found a conventional western or eastern religion that focuses on soul? How about philosophical studies? New age teachings? If you have, how can you KNOW what you're leaning is the truth? My answer is provisional faith.
As a seeker of truth I inherently know and have the utmost faith that my true identity is soul. There is a part of my mind that wants to learn the truth of my existence. Why I'm here and who I truly am. After years of exposure to many of the aforementioned avenues I came to realize that none of them had the answer. None of them focused on soul.
Then one day I listened to a lecture by Sri Gary and read an introduction written by him. I was immediately attracted to the ancient and divine teachings of light and sound BECAUSE the whole focus is to awaken soul from within. Provisional faith played a tremendous role in moving forward so as I performed the exercises, absorbed the lessons and practiced living more consciously I also looked for any indication that the teachings or the facilitator were a manipulation. Sri Gary has NEVER crossed the line of personalizing his Divine mission. He is impeccably consistent in his teachings and ALWAYS directs his students to NOT depend on him and to develop their own personal relationship with Spirit, by using their attention.
After 12 years of study and practice within MasterPath my provisional faith has transformed into a rock solid knowingness that Sri Gary Olsen is the way shower. A living, breathing example of how to shift my human experience from being directed by my mind to consciously living through soul. He is the ideal, the model, the guide who's mission is to serve the Divine by guiding ready souls back home.
I gladly pay a very small monthly fee of $30 to cover the costs of the monthly written discourse sent to all initiates. These are treasures, sign posts, that build on each other and provide valuable insights into the journey Home. I also attend regional and major seminars throughout the year, gladly contributing $120 for the opportunity to be present with Sri Gary while he speaks.
I remain a student of Light and Sound by choice because the journey and experience are invaluable. After all, why would I choose to return to the sensual / intellectual dictates of my mind. To me, that would be like returning to the life and awareness of a new born infant.
I have been a student of MasterPath, a Light and Sound Path for 20 years and have only experienced continued inner realizations of love, joy, serenity ; a deeper being of my true self. I have a deeper understanding and acceptance of the Brother/Sisterhood of men and women and love for all God's Creations. I served closely in the MasterPath Organization and was and continue to be always amazed by the ethical, and pure handling of all affairs, all correspondence and high respect for all students and the public. MasterPath is really an inner path of self and god realization. There is little outer involvement; a few seminars a year. The dues and fees are minimal for the studies one receives. Sri Gary Olsen always states that he is just a wayshower to the inner kingdom of spiritual freedom within each human being. Each becomes one's own master in soul and follows one's own inner path to spiritual freedom here and now. MasterPath teaches the respect for all beliefs religious and spiritual or no belief at all, while guiding those that choose to move inward to the discovery of their own inner temple. I have only experienced great upliftment and become a better human being from following my own light and sound within by the perfect and always loving guidance of Sri Gary and MasterPath teachings. So, I would highly suggest any true spiritual seeker to check it out for oneself.
Gary Olsen is a fraud and has zero credibility. He is self-proclaimed to be the 'living Master'. Funny, he used to be part of Eckankar (another fradulent light and sound religion)...you don't suppose there are any parallels here, do you? Stay away from this nonsense!
