Let’s look at some facts. Eve the mother states in the Involvement that she has a child of God and his name is Cain and she has a man-child and his name is Abel. The two persons are offering sacrifice to the deity. The child of God brings fruits and nuts like a good vegetarian and the child of man brings his lamb and the child of man’s sacrifice is accepted over the child of God and when the Creator is confronted by the choice He made by Cain, the creator tells Cain “If you do right thy brother will serve thee.” Now it was up to Cain to understand the commitment. He was considered a child of God by his mother and Abel was considered a child of man by the mother. Their sacrifice brought a point of decision between the Creative Intelligence and their emotions. Cain’s sacrifice was turned down and Abel’s was accepted. Abel challenges the decision. He’s told, “If you do right, your brother will serve thee.” Now, what right did he go out and do? Slay his brother? So how can his brother serve him, but doing right, if he obey the law of love and if he knew, as his mother knew, that he was truly a child of God and had nothing to fear, had nothing to be jealous or envy about, that his divine consciousness would flow through him when the time come for him to express his divinity, his brother, who is lesser evolved and had need of understanding would soon turn to him as his teacher. He wouldn’t go to his father and mother to learn the spiritual life. He would turn to his brother for the spiritual light, but the brother was in a haste so he threw away the one opportunity to lead the brother out of darkness therefore creating the great involvement, Karma. The first act of violence. The Creator would resolve many things for us, except when we hurt the feelings of another. We have to work this out ourselves. It’s true that involvement with two human beings that the karmic law is enforced. What you do to someone is coming back to you in some form.

If strictly, “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” would be the only way we could get involved then the question would come up: If Cain killed Abel, when is Able going to get a chance to kill Cain, right? But the Scripture says, “The voice of God called upon Cain and asked him where his brother is and Cain replied, ‘am I my brother’s keeper?'” Yes we are. Therefore they say the Lord made a statement that no one should take the law into their hands to destroy Cain and He put a mark on Cain. Well the question is this: Cain went out, Abel is dead, where is the justice? Does Cane go Cane free, no involvement, Abel is dead, no restitution?

In the involvement or karma or action, one person said, “Masters come on this earth to take away our karma, to take away our sins” and another person says, “That ain’t true. To give your sins or your karma to the Master, that is karma. You really made karma then.” Who is right? They are both right. If you’re coming up the ladder and I’m standing here and I have compassion, I’ll reach down and pick you up. Now you may say, “Don’t reach down, I may pull you down” but I’d be stupid if I reach down and try to pull you up if I had nothing to hold onto. The Godman does not do that. He doesn’t just reach down and pick you up. He has, like a monkey, one arm on the next rung up and one arm down, but his body still got to go through gravity to reach down. Get in the dirt with you and pull you up. That’s the involvement for the Godman, but he does not let go of his divine link when he lives in the world with us. The personal manifestation of God in man is to show us the two-way connection. The inward bond to the spirit in one way and an outward compassion for the fellow man in the other way. Therefore the commandment that overcomes all types of involvement or karma, “Love ye one another. Love the Lord thy God with all your mind, heart, and soul, strength. Love your neighbor as yourself.” This resolves all the involvement. This resolve the conflicts. Without that type of resolution we would never make it, it’s not possible.

He knew His creation can only gain strength, can only achieve the triumph of renewal of Self, the complete realization of itself by being involved. The philosophy that tells you not to get involved, not to get trapped, tested, confrontation, is not a genuine philosophy. It’s the one that tells you go in there, find out for sure if you are truly Soul, if you can stand the pressure and work with the pressure and call on your Divine Creativity, the Divine Will, to surround you and face the obligations, you have the true philosophy. Then you have found that why the Creator made you. He made you to demonstrate the divinity of your nature while in action in His creation. The creation is not a place to idly lay away and fall asleep. It’s a place where we’re constantly tested to discover our divinity. We would not know if we have a divinity if we had no challenge, if we had no involvement, if we never made mistakes, and never tried to correct them. We would never know.

So what did I learn? Enjoy Now because that’s all I got. The nostril that breathes is the divinity that is me and there is nobody out there to punish me for good or bad because there is no good or bad. The good or bad is my game I play with myself thinking I’m important or unimportant. When in actuality, God became me and He’s having a ball allowing me to make an ass of myself believing I’m doggone stupid or ignorant or all kind of muck-up. And all He did tell me from the start of creation, “Go forth, multiply, and have dominion, but don’t setup your franchise.” So multiply means produce yourself as much as you want – trillions upon trillions of times, have dominion – play the game of running the show, but don’t hang on to nothing. So oh boy, is that a game? (somebody says, “It’s all a show.”) Yeah, and when you live it out by going through it, He says “Here, keep your suit. Don’t trade it back in. I don’t need it. It’s already yours.” You can modify it, make it look male, female, skinny, young, fat, or aged, but it’s all here. Permanent suit, it’s called Living Soil. See I don’t have a Soul, I’m Soul, Living Soil, 144 elements in an immortal… (end of tape).

Now we would never get involved if we were told to do as we please. The only way we going to get involved is when we are told not to do what we please. “Don’t eat the apple,” don’t do this, don’t do that. Most unique psychology devised by the Creative Intelligence to get His projection, Soul / Man, to be involved with His creation. Without the challenge, without the confrontation, without the anxiety, the tension, the pressures, there are no involvement. It is because of that the law of karma is valid. The involvement, the confrontation, the facing up to yourself, the organizing of life, trying to straighten out the divine mess. Putting order into a chaotic omni-directional universe, flowing in every direction. We want to set order to it. This is the great Divine Plan. Getting the Soul to get in there and straighten out. Put corn in one line, put squash in one line, put peas in one line, put all the pine trees in one line. You even may go ahead and call it the involvement of self pollution, but it is the essential part of the Soul’s growth, why It was designed, to be involved. If we think He designed us not to be involved, not to get strung out, in this marvelous plan of existence, it’s not true.

Let us take Master Jesus and use one of His affirmations pertaining to health. “Come unto me all ye that travail and are heavily laden and I will refresh you.” I’ll repeat it again. You’ll notice there is no negative implication in those words. “Come unto me.” Leave what you’re doing. Leave the various association with the negative thought conditions and come, that means surrender, unto your Christ self within you. You have an ache and a pain, the ache or the pain can be very very depressing. The attachment to it because of association from previous aches and pains, you may not automatically want to release or let go, but “come unto me” means drop it, detach for a second, and let your consciousness go up to the vital life power which is the Christ in you, the God power, and let it regenerate you, regenerate those areas of your mechanism that are clogged up, locked up, overworked, and fatigued. So what can be clogged up or blocked up in this mechanism, except the sensory nature? The very sensory nature that is relating or telegraphing “ache or pain” to the mind. I bang my hand and there’s a sensation here so my senses remember. I saw I did it, I felt I did it, I heard I did it, I can smell it too is possible, or even taste it.

I’ll let these people come in first… Lots of seats here in the front you know. It’ll save me from straining my throat. As I said, tonight’s lecture is called The Involvement. You know the word karma is so overworked and “as you sow you reap,” that’s all overworked and then we find ourselves asking ourselves the question, “What it’s all about?” So it’s Involvement, the second phase of the Science of the Soul. Why we are thrown into creation. If you realize the Creator made Man last. He did not make him first. Think for one moment, if he made Man first, where would He put him? How would He sustain him? What would Man have to compare with? There would be no planetary systems, no plant life, no animal life, no form of sustenance. Man would be sitting on a beautiful throne called void. Interesting? But Man was made last. He was the last act of creation, putting you in a very unique position in the whole of creation, everything was made for you. So now how can you have karma if you were made last? This seems to be a contradictory question. If you were made last, how would you have karma? If you are made first, how can you have karma? But because we are made last, we were turned loose with free will to get involve with the creation.

Before we can actually go in to that type of understanding, we must calibrate our minds because the minds are restless before you got here you see? Trying to fight the freeway, red light: not possible, yellow light: to go or not to go, and go like hell (laughter). So to calibrate the mind is to center it here at the point between the eyebrows and let’s keep your consciousness there (short meditation). Thank you. Tonight our second lecture based upon the Science of the Soul. Our early one was called the Origin. I’ll call the second one Involvement. You may know it as the Law of Karma or you may also know it as “a man so that he reaps,” or an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, cause and effect, but getting down to the nitty-gritty, that’s what my name is, it’s Involvement. Why the Creator threw us into the big mess. It’s the big mess: Matter acting on Matter, Energy acting on Matter, Consciousness acting on Matter, Energy acting on Energy, Consciousness acting on Energy, Consciousness acting on Consciousness, Beingness acting on Consciousness, Beingness acting on Beingness. What a mess He threw us in.

Host Introducing Adano: Although they are not sponsoring this particular series, however our speaker is well known to ARE members (Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment) and to many of our visitors. The Reverend Adano Christopher Ley was guest speaker for our series here concerning Eastern and Western teachings this past July and it was at this time that many of us learned to respect and love him. We’re so happy and honored to have him with us in our midst tonight. Reverend Ley is a native of British Guiana and of Chinese, Indian, Spanish, and Mongolian descent. He came to this country when he was 15 years old. He studied comparative religions, various Yogic techniques, meditation, and prayer techniques among the Indians of North and South America. He and his wife are founders and leaders of the All Faith Fellowship of Tyler, Texas. In October of 1969, Reverend Ley it was initiated into Swami-hood in the ancient order of the Saraswati. He was given the title and the name of Swami Nityananda Saraswati. It is my privilege to present him to you, Swami Nityananda Saraswati. (applause) Adano speaks: Thank you. As you know, for Swamis this is not a lecture. Most people they get together and lecture but for us it’s called Satsanga. Sat is truth, Sanga is fellowship with the truth. The reasons are: 1) We have a physical communication, 2) There’s a mental communication, and 3) There’s an extrasensory communication going on all at the same time.
