Weary of lifetimes of unfulfilling search for ultimate happiness in the world, the devotee yearns for meaning and purpose and discovers the spiritual path. The devotee at last begins to recognize that That Something for which it longs is God-contact and embarks in earnest to search for a deeper reality, and a closer, more loving relationship with God.
The journey begins with an invocation to the peace and blessing of Divine Mother as the holy Om vibration in all creation.
Gurudeva, Paramahansa Yoganandaji, tells us that God can be approached and contacted in any form that appeals to the devotee, whether that be in the form of one of the Great Ones, or in the aspect of the Father, Mother, Friend, or Divine Beloved. Guruji tells us that aspect most responsive is the aspect of Divine Mother, for She responds not with regard to the merit of the devotee, but with the unconditional love of a mother for her child.
Soul Calls One ~Journey Within calls to many aspects of the Divine, but most soulfully to the Divine Mother; entreating Her to come and lift the devotee out of the grasp of Maya, safely into Her arms of Love; the soul’s true home.
Finally, the Mother responds and guides the devotee deeper within through silent meditation and contemplation on Her. In this stillness within, the devotee finds the solace and inspiration to make a greater determination to soar spiritually toward the Divine Goal ~ God Union.
ABOUT THE SOUL CALLS
The Soul Calls are for seekers and lovers of God. They chronicle the devotee’s experience from seeking to finding that sweetest of relationships; the Divine Romance.
The tracks within an album work together to reflect some aspect of the Homeward journey, taking the listener from one place on the continuum of inner experience to the next; usually from angst to faith, from the perception of the darkness of seeming separation to the comfort of Divine Remembrance.
Each Soul Calls album is also connected on the continuum. The overall progression of the albums reveals the devotee’s various inner experiences on the journey to God-realization; Union with the Divine Beloved.
As the devotee gains in realization, moving deeper into the Divine Romance within, and penetrating the heart of Divine Love, the devotee’s journey and its lessons are experienced at ever deepening levels. As the love of the devotee for God grows, so does the perception of the journey and the awareness of the omnipresent blessings of the Divine Nearness.
Although there is a progression of the spiritual journey in the Soul Calls albums, any and every Soul Call may be experienced at different times, with different levels of consciousness, as the devotee’s unique karma and awarenesses unfold. And we find that the communion inherent in the Soul Calls is surely a reciprocal one, in that not only does the devotee call to the Divine, but very often the Divine speaks compellingly through them to the heart and consciousness of the devotee.
As the valley is seen from a mountain, the higher one climbs, the wider the view of the same valley below, until at last the peak is reached and a complete view in every direction is beheld. Just so on the spiritual journey to enlightenment; all inner perceptions are viewed from an ever expanding consciousness until at last, with the mystics of every race and religion, The Ineffable Fullness is known; Union with the Divine Beloved; a melting in all that is True, Good, and Holy.
Nearing Home at last, with heart absorbed in the Divine Beloved, the devotee’s experience encompasses what was so simply, penetratingly, and exquisitely penned in Omar Khayyam’s Rubaiyat, verse 32, translated by Paramahansa Yogananda in Wine of the Mystic:
“There was a Door to which I found no Key:
There was a Veil past which I could not see:
Some little talk awhile of ME and THEE
There seem’d – and then no more of THEE and ME.”
