SPIRITUAL LEADERS

A prophet or Guru is someone who is important in a Religion, Faith or Spiritual Movement. They are said to speak through Divine Inspiration and get messages from a higher place. They may be able to prophesy, see future events, heal, help and inspire people. Prophets usually have a great many followers and have gone on to found a religion or system of faith. Gurus offer spiritual guidance to a smaller number of disciples, and may not be linked to a particular religion.

The Far Country is a vast world lying beyond the Earth plane of existence, that has not been explored by scientists or politicians for material glory. It is a fantastic series of spiritual universes where soul goes following the disposal of the physical body in the phenomena called death. Some Spiritual Adepts have been known to travel these inner worlds, whilst still living on the earthly plane. The great spiritual leaders brought positive energy vibrations for the benefit of the Human race and offered us a pathway to the Divine Spirit.

The Far Country has many names. The Greeks called it the "Elysian Fields", the Scandinavians gave it "Valhalla", the Native Americans knew it as the "Happy Hunting Ground", the Hebrews as the "Promised Land, the Buddhists called it "Nirvana" and the Christians "Paradise" or "Heaven".

YOU can gain Spiritual Energy by dedicating some time to Spiritual Contemplative Exercises ... and build up spiritual stamina if you REALLY want to ... Do You ? How can we make a simple plan that is easy to follow on a daily basis ? We must ask the experts how we can build and Achieve our Spiritual Goals.

RELIGIOUS LEADERS

MOHAMMED was leader of the Islam Religion. While sitting in a cave on Mount Hirae, he received messages from an Angel. He was told to tell the people that there was One God, who became known to Muslims as Allah.

GURU NANAK was the first teacher of Sikhism, and believed that all people were united in God's eyes. He gave this message to the Hindu's and Muslims who lived in what is now Pakistan.

SIDDHARTHA GAUTAMA later known as the Buddha, was an Indian prince brought up in great wealth. However, when he saw the suffering of his people, he gave up his riches and went on a journey around India, and eventually founded Buddhism, a philosophy based on "The Truth".

JESUS was born to the virgin Mary. He and his disciples travelled around healing, performing miracles, and telling parables. Christianity was founded on the teachings of Jesus.

JACOB, son of Isaac, and grandson of the prophet Abraham, was given the name of Israel by God, and the people of Israel named their nation after him. Jewish people believe that they are all descended from Abraham.

MOSES helped the Jewish people to escape fron Egyptian slavery. He parted the waters of the Red Sea so that they could walk to freedom. People of the Jewish faith regard Moses with some awe, as he was the prophet that God knew face to face. It is said that God handed over the Ten Commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai, on tablets of stone.

DALAI LAMA is an important part of the faith of Tibetan Buddhists, and a living example for others to follow. The name "Dalai" means "Ocean of Wisdom". He usually earns his position during childhood, through remembering past lives. The Wisdom of the current Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatsu inspires people all over the world and across all cultures. He was born in 1935, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, and since the Chinese invasion of Tibet lives in exile in the Himalayas.

MORIHEI UESHIBA was the founder of Aikido - The Way of Spiritual Harmony in 1925 after twenty three years of studying martial arts, religion and philosophy. He was regarded as the most religious man in Japan as he would spend his time in study, prayer, meditation and farming. Aikido is a dicipline of co-ordination and self-defence. There is an emphasis of centralisation of thought and action and the extension of mental energy. There are millions of followers on the path of Aikido.

MOTHER MEERA, known as the Divine Mother, is believed to be an Avatar or Supreme Being who is here to help people during times of crisis on the planet. She is said to have a wonderful healing light and believes that our connection with God, or the Divine, is important for our growth and transformation into more spiritually aware beings.

SAI BABA was known as an Avatar who came to help the world in times of stress. He helped people to re-discover the ancient wisdom of Vedic (ancient Hindu) teachings. Sai Baba says that we should recognise that we are all a part of God, and we must learn to love one another. Hindu's predicted that he would be a saviour for the planet and will return 3 times.

MAHARISHI YOGI was an Indian monk who introduced a popular method of meditation, known as Transcendental Meditation. People who use this aim to reach an altered state of consciousness. Words of power or "Mantras" are used to calm the mind.

BHAGWAN SHREE RAJNEESH set up an Ashram, Retreat, and centre for religious meditation in India. He believed that meditation was the answer to everything. Unfortunately he was accused of enjoying wealth and other excesses.

This is an overview of many of the founders of religions, faiths and spiritual movements and is in no way intended to be complete. There are many inspirational spiritual teachers and it always comes down to individual choice of which path to choose. The best way to decide on YOUR path is to ask Yourself " What am I drawn to"? There your answers will be found !

LEADERS IN PHILOSOPHY

The word philosophy means "love of wisdom" and to find wisdom we need to ask questions, such as ... Why are we here ? ... Where do we come from ? ... What happens to us when we die ?

Our early ancestors had to struggle just to survive and didn't have time to pose these questions. In today's world, most of us don't have to protect ourselves from dangerous wild animals or worry about where the next meal is coming from. This allows us the luxury of time and space to start asking questions about life.

This is why philosophy is seen as part of a civilised society. We are all born philosophers ... children use the word "Why" over and over again. It is when we take this attitude into adult life that we can continue our search for answers to our most important questions.

PYTHAGORUS was one of the first Greek philosophers. He believed that there was a harmony in the Universe and that everything related to numbers.

CONFUCIUS believed that knowledge was found in people, not in something mystical. He was in favour of education and an orderly society.

ARISTOTLE believed that we should strive for the good in life, and happiness for all people, but he realised that different things made different people happy.

SOCRATES thought that all truth is within our souls and strongly encouraged his pupils to think for themselves.

PLATO believed that evil was really a lack of knowledge, and that finding out how to live a good life was like solving a math problem.

LAO-TZU was a Chinese philosopher who felt we should follow the Tao, or way of life, and live in harmony with the Universe.

FREUD was an Austrian physician who believed that we are all driven by unconscious needs and desires, which our conscious mind can't always control.

JUNG was a Swiss psychiatrist who invented the idea of a "collective unconscious", which suggests that the same ideas and mythical events are found in the unconscious minds of everyone in the Universe.

SARTRE was a French philosopher who believed that existence is the only important thing, there is no higher meaning, and we are responsible for our own lives.

GURDJIEFF spent twenty years travelling throughout Central Asia and the Middle East in search of answers to his questions about existence. He was a significant force in contempory philosophy and was oriented in the Islamic Sufi Tradition. He had personal power and magnetism and gathered many students.

There are many ideas on how we should live our lives and a variety of philosophical ideas we may use on our individual path to truth and reality. Philosophy is of the mind and based on developing intelligence to lead us to wisdom. There are many factors involved in learning how to use our minds efficiently and we need to be in optimum health, relaxed, at ease.

CULT LEADERS

The word "cult", which is a term for a group of people with similar beliefs and behaviour, is often associated with a Guru. Cults have been criticised because some Guru's spend money on cars and holidays etc, while preaching that their followers should live a simple life and give up their wealth. Most of today's major Religions and Faiths were once small cults. The difference comes down to the number of members and the international importance of a movement.

SCIENTOLOGY is a 20th Century Church, which has millions of members around the world. Some call scientology a religion, and others call it a philosophy of life. It was founded by L. Ron Hubbard, who became famous for his book called "Dianetics" - The Modern Science of Mental Health. He believed that unhappy events in our lives can weaken us, but once we understand their root, the memory no longer has power over us.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE was founded in 1866 by Mary Baker Eddy as a result of a miraculous healing she received after a fall. She wrote "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" It claims to have restored the lost element in Christianity, which is divine healing. This group is neither Christian or Scientific as their teaching is mind over matter and not the reality of an experience with God.

JEHOVAH'S WITNESSESS were founded in 1879 and the Watchtower Bible was a product of the life work of Charles Taze Russell. He also wrote the Millenium Dawn and was said to have travelled over one million miles and given over thirty thousand sermons.

MORMONISM or the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter day Saints was founded by Joseph Smith in 1820 after a vision of Jesus. The Divine revelations were recorded as the "Book of Commandments", which is now known as the "Doctrine and Covenents" Mormons believe they are the restoration of the true church established by Jesus Christ.

THE UNIFICATION CHURCH also known as the "Moonies" was founded by Sun Myung Moon who had a vision of Jesus at the age of sixteen. He believed he was the Messiah and like many cult leaders claimed exclusive knowledge. He wrote the "Divine Principle".

HARE KRISHNA developed in the fifteenth century when Chaitanya Mahaprabhu extracted the doctrines of Krishnaism from the Hindu sect. The followers believed that every individual must go through a series of successive lives (reincarnation) to rid himself of the debt of his actions (karma).

ROSICRUCIANISM is said to have been founded in 1614 after occult writings were discovered in a grave 100 years after the death of Christian Rosenkreutz. It is not a religion, but rather a secret society which teaches a system of physical and metaphysical philosophy.

There are many other leaders of cults, philosophies, spiritual movements, faiths and religions : Meher Baba, The Bahai Faith, Carlos Castaneda, Edgar Cayce, Sri Chimnoy, Existentialism, Erich Fromm, J. Krishnamurti, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Ram Dass, Wilhelm Reich, Yoga, etc.

There are so many different paths to personal power, wisdom, enlightenment, divine spirit, and God, that it becomes very difficult to make a definite choice as to the individual path for us.

One of the most useful tools YOU can use is to ask yourself "What am I drawn to"? The answer will certainly aid your progress.

Another practical method is to ask yourself "What elements can I find in all paths to God"? The answers will focus YOU on the best, practical and most powerful tools available.
