Heavenly Being


 

The universe is my body
The worlds – my blood
The stars – my coat
The light – my residence
The life – my breath

A happy soul is…


 

Dear friends,

My friend Kamal has inspired me to write some lines of a happy soul.
Please, check out her great blog-site, full of wisdom and spiritual richness.
 

https://boundlessblessingsblog.wordpress.com/2018/12/04/happy-souls-are-we/
 

Indeed we are soul, love and light – however, our mind stands often between our inner happiness and covers it with its own permanent changing colour.

Thank you, my dear friend, Kamal πŸ™‚
 
 

 
 

Here is what I have added to her lovely post:

A happy soul is who has seen with inner eyes the everlasting happiness in Him…

A happy soul is who is detached from all worldly affairs, who is in this world but not from this world

A happy soul is who lives Oneness

A happy soul is who combines Self-realisation with God realisation

A happy soul is who has reached emptiness from oneself, to enter One Self

Radiation of love may reach all hearts
Didi

Unbreakable Life


 

 

All is life
That wanders
In the change
Of transformation

Wedding of dust and spirit
Symbiotic honeymoon
Getting lost
Finding again
Mutual journey

Vibrating in time
Like waves on high seas
Meeting space
Striking back – ripples
Of cosmic winds

Life, forged spirit
Of matter and space
Mutating, breaking time
Leaves the host
Gives new shape

Wandering through eternity
Detached from dust and sand…

The science of the soul (part 1)


 

Spirit or soul

What is soul?

The soul is a ray of His (God’s) thought. Soul is a ray of His wish. The soul felt its identity when it was separated from the ocean – the ocean of consciousness, and for that it had to assume different forms. It bears the physical, astral and causal body and is living in the material world, in the material nature.

Who knows, β€œI am the soul”?

This awakening and right understanding came out of its own self, from the soul, and it could know that it has to go somewhere, but it is tied in the body with mind and matter and cannot get out of it. However, the link is there. No one can separate the link from the origin.

The thought of that power awakens the soul.

You know, as the clouds burst in the skies and it rains on the earth, so does it happen with the soul. When the thought of that power, which is within vibrates, it awakens the soul in the body. The soul is not satisfied in this human body. The greatest help we can give is the help to the soul. It is the greatest selfless service, the service to our own self.

The Masterpower reminds us, β€œYou are the spirit, you are the soul.” Man is the first creation of His thought. Everything else came afterwards.

The ocean lives in the fish

It is our ignorance that we think the fish lives in the ocean. That power is innate in the soul and due to Him we know that we are of the same essence as that of God. So the ocean lives in the fish and not the fish in the ocean. If we know that, we are nearer to the goal.

The science of the soul – (Part 1)

The whole text can be read here:

With due deference to the scientific progress, man has ignored the most vital part of his life – the active life-principle in him, the soul, the very essence of life, or spark from the all-consciousness, an unseen and invisible power at the back of all creation. The Masters of the mystic science have been deeply engaged with the development of this mysterious power called life, and the results of their experiments are recorded in the form of various scriptures of the world. This sacred literature, in spite of the apparent diversities, reveals a marvelous uniformity at the core – a basic unity testifying oneness of the source – the immutable radiance of the divinity.

The Master-souls have come time and time again to grace this earth for the humanity’s spiritual enlightenment. They have left behind for our guidance the precious records of what they experienced within.

Ever since the first flicker of life on earth, man has been mightily engaged in search of happiness. He has made a tremendous progress in all walks of life. Take, for example, physical research. Many wonderful sciences have come to light: Unani system of medicine, Ayurvedic system of cure, Allopathy, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, and the like. All of them aim at the smooth working of the physical body. Surgery has progressed to an extent unknown before – the finest organ of the human body can now be replaced or transplanted from one to another. Similarly, man has taken long strides in the field of intellect. Man has not only conquered the forces of nature, but has pressed them into his service. You can hear and see a person from thousands of miles afar with the aid of a wireless set and a television. Man is now trying to probe into the mysteries of space and establish interplanetary relations. All these are the miracles of the scientific mind.

With due deference to the scientific progress, man has ignored the most vital part of his life – the active life-principle in him, the soul, the very essence of life, or spark from the all-consciousness, an unseen and invisible power at the back of all creation. The Masters of the mystic science have been deeply engaged with the development of this mysterious power called life, and the results of their experiments are recorded in the form of various scriptures of the world. This sacred literature, in spite of the apparent diversities, reveals a marvelous uniformity at the core – a basic unity testifying oneness of the source – the immutable radiance of the divinity. It is due to the lack of practical persons well versed in Paravidya, or the science of the beyond, that we are offered shadowy rites and rituals, symbolic of the great truth bubbling with life. So many faiths and isms fail to offer us a perfect solution of the problem of life. The maximum that priest craft can offer is a certain belief in the goodness to come in the distant future. Thus, most of the people devoted to the so-called spiritual enlightenment remain in their water-tight compartments, make-belief of religious affiliations, following a code of set principles with the hope that all this will ultimately lead to liberation.

All the established religious orders have their origin in some Master in the past, who in his own good time guided the people to a higher purpose of life – the spiritual perfection. Every flow is followed by an ebb in the affairs of man. To err is human and people generally relax into ignorance with the passage of time. The merciful providence, however, in the fullness of time, provides the world with the means of regeneration. Another prophet, a new messiah, comes on the scene to fan into flames the dying embers and tries to knit all his children into silken bonds of world fellowship.

Meeting inside


 

The body separates us
From each other
We see, feel, hear, taste and think
Through these clashing walls
Borders of the spirit
Touch locked-in prisions

Inside we open the doors
Gates of united unities
Are one in all
All in One
Free of matter
Being in being

The key lies
In our heart
Language of love
Sunshine, beams
Communicate
Living light

Drop in the Ocean
Ocean in the drop…

The purpose of meditation


 

 

Blessed are those who meditate for the love of God.

Nowadays, meditation is done like breakfast is taken. Some people meditate to fulfill their wishes, some meditate for peace of mind. Some people meditate to gain riches in the world, name, and fame. Some people do it only for the building of the body, to get rid of the diseases. Some people make a show of their meditation, there are mesmerism, spiritism, spiritualism, there are hundreds of branches out of it and they have nothing to do with spirituality, on the contrary, they are dangerous traps for the soul. Some meditate to acquire supernatural powers, some meditate to influence others, and some people meditate for salvation. With these aims, however, one stays on the level of mind and cannot reach the plane of consciousness. There are thousand ways of meditation, which will not take us anywhere.

Better not to meditate than to meditate in the wrong way

To meditate only with the help of mind, to meditate to fulfill wishes, is a death trap for the soul. The astral plane is fully controlled by the negative power and is open for everybody. The experiences given by the self-styled β€œmasters” are merely astral experiences. If you want to go to the astral plane, you do not even need a master, because the mind itself will take you there. In any way you will come there into the clutch of the negative power, you will lose your free will, your consciousness, and discrimination power, and you will be further bound in the net of transmigration.

So it is of great importance to find out what is that meditation, which will transcend us above the body consciousness and take us back to home eternal. Which is that meditation, which provides us the Water of Life and Bread of Life?

The subject meditation is directly connected with the purpose of human life, the development of the consciousness – the soul or spirit in man. The highest aim of life is self-realization and God-realization. But who meditates out of yearning and love for God?

To meditate without competent guidance, to perform yoga practices and to go into the chakras and use the Kundalini-power means to get lost in the astral and causal plane

Those who stress at the place between and behind the eyebrows and try to meditate by themselves, or practice various yogas, go into the chakras and enter into the astral plane. The chakras are controlled by astral forces that reveal themselves as gods and goddesses or angles. They are not conscious and of no help to man since they do not know the Father. They are of no use. They can only fulfil your wishes.

Many people go down into the body, their Kundalini-power opens and, coming from the spine, it rises from behind to the top of the head. The light and sound one experiences there is negative, it has nothing to do with the experience given by a competent Master.

Dr. Harbhajan Singh

 

Already One


 

 

Consciousness has no limits
It is the mind, the ego the I in us
That draws borders
Splits us from the whole

Within the separation
Flows consciousness
Is connected to everything
In eternal existence

Splitting: between you and me
Subject and object
Is a big deception, illusion
Because everything rests within itself

Everything flows in silence
Without movement
Has no time nor space
The ego dreams that dream

Overlapping flowing units
Form contents of consciousness
Are connected in small and big things
Walk in the stream: consciousness

The unit lives for itself
Is flowingly connected
Invisible from star to star
From man to man

We are still dreaming and yet we are already one…

Mind versus soul


 

 

Mind needs nearness and warmth
Limits love to a few
Is I-oriented, complacent
Intoxicated by l and mine

Soul is like a universe
Where everyone can take a seat
Nobody forgotten, excluded
Love that embraces the universe…

Mind watches jealously
That nothing is taken from what it “owns”
Rarely is satisfied
With what it has

Soul lives and lets live
Embodies all-encompassing love
Is sunlight and warmth
For all creatures

Mind separates, breaks in two
Words and persons
Replaces happiness with wishes
Reaps ups and downs

Soul builds up, puts together
Is one with everything
United consciousness
Breathes happiness and eternity

Not alone


 


Not alone

Never abondoned
Life in the heart
Hands together
In nights and days

Silent talks alive
Language of the heart
Where darkness has no room
Sunshine is dancing

Embracing silence
Beyond the time
Birth of freedom
From prisoned mind

Coming to my house
To clean from shadows
Welcome you in light
From face to face

On the river of tears
Transforming into light
The boat ashore
On the banks of joy and bliss

The ferryman of time
Sets over to that island
Land of hope and oneness
When fruits are ripe

Never abondoned
Moments evergreen
Patiently waiting
The day of return

Yearning of the soul


 


Kirpal Sagar

 

Following text about yearning of the soul can be read here:

http://spirituality.unity-of-man.org/en/spirituality/god-spirit-and-soul/59-yearning-of-the-soul.html

 

 

Yearning of the soul

“O God, Your attention reaches far and wide, everywhere.
Millions of souls are longing for Your blessing – they are standing at Your door to get Your Naam.
But You give Naam only to those who love God from the core of their heart.”

All the disciple needs he can get just by surrendering fully at the feet of the Master. When the disciple surrenders to Him, Master is happy, for He sees: “My child who was sent into the world with many promises and got lost in the fair of the world, has now returned to me.” Then, full of joy, the Masterpower takes the child to the place where His work is done so that the child may get further lessons. That is called Satsang. Through His word and blessing He dyes the soul in His own colour so that it may never leave Him again, for Master wants to keep His child close to Him. The soul then knows, “My Father is highest in the whole universe, no one is equal to Him!”

 

When the soul gets these blessings, the disciple prays, “O Master, take away from me lust, anger, greed, attachment, and ego and give me the real life. I want to live at Your feet forever!” Inside, reaching at the gate to His throne, the soul recognizes Master’s abode as the treasure of Naam. Seeing Him distributing this treasure, the soul says, “Master generously distributes this unique treasure of Naam. I need this blessing from Him to cross the ocean of life.”

Weeping the soul begs, “O Master, do not leave me! If You are with me, all troubles and sorrows are gone and all attachments to the world are cut off. Under Your shelter and protection alone I can live, otherwise I am in the grip of the five thieves. When You are with me, the five thieves run away. Keep my face always turned to You! You have granted me Your help again and again, so I can overcome all those problems.” The soul further cries, “How great a burden You took on Your shoulders, how great the power You give us to cross the barriers! Without Your help we could hardly ever reach Your heart. Grant me the grace to sit under the shade of that tree (of Your grace) or plant this tree in front of my house. Branches and leaves of this tree should be made of truth, so that I may relish its fruits.” I am crying before You on behalf of myself, beseeching You not to send me into the wheel of life again.” A doctor can only be called who knows about the patient’s suffering. The soul says, “Take away from me lust, anger, greed, attachment, and ego, and give me the knowledge of Brahm (which cannot be gained unless one lives a pure life) and Bhakti (devotion to the Master). All that lies in Your hand.”

The soul knows that if the disciple has attained this knowledge and gets Master’s attention, even the gods and goddesses bow down before him. The soul says, “O God, Your attention reaches far and wide, everywhere. Millions of souls are longing for Your blessing – they are standing at Your door to get Your Naam. But You give Naam only to those who love God from the core of their heart.

 

 

 

Wind of eternity


Wind of eternity
Touches the heart
Morning dew
Hidden silence

Light coats the eye
with rays of sunlight
Inner journey
Embracing meeting

Time flows along
From heavenly mountains
Metamorphosis
Kaleidoscopic Life

Thoughts are splitting
Waking up illusions
Into unreal films
A break of the middle

Wind of eternity
Untouching touched
Dancing in the heart
Kidnapped by the light

Rolling tears


 

 

Shedding tears express
Joy and sorrow
Are invisible words
Living experience
Water of life

Tears wash and clean
Pain and heart
Are talking pearls
Stories of ups and downs
Innermost feelings

Tears flow from the depth
Sing a sad or joyful song
Invite for compassion
Deep empathy
Is understood wordlessly

Tears are touching
Leaving a trail
Salt of the soul
Infect warm hearts
To strech out hands, embrace…

Tears – language of the soul

Golden light in the eyes


 

 

Have you ever seen the light
In the eyes of people
The brilliance of it
The sunshine radiating?

This glowing is not male, not female
It is beyond description
No words can catch it
No thought can pin it

Living music flows out of these eyes
Over the edge of matter
Penetrates time and space
Is pure nectar of the heart

It touches my deepest being
A ray of divinity
Light that merges into light
A dance of love between you and me

Beacon of the soul…

Touching truth


 

 

Mind loves to play
Enters worn out pathes
Seeks happiness
In his own house (ego)

Stays away from the truth
Loves deceptions and tricks
Kidnaps and seduces
Head and heart

Remains anchored
In the game of time performed
Directs and deceives
Keeps one “comfortable”

Any excuse is welcome
If only soul is controlled
Living fields of wishes ploughed
Inside journey prevented

“Tomorrow, tomorrow I meet the truth!”
Mind speaks to itself again and again
Fearing the truth
To be robbed, to be changed…

… To lose control… to lose old habits…

Outer and inner knowledge


 

 

Outer knowledge fills us
With learnt and book knowledge
Is empty knowledge
Of no use for the soul

Outer knowledge and longing for God
May be the bridge to the shore soul
Once entered this knowledge turns
Loses, fades into emptiness

Inner knowledge empties us from us
Allows God to sit in us
In an empty vessel
The true knowledge of the soul

I or ego disappears
Transcendents, rises beyond
Mind and borders
Takes “shape” in All and Nothing

Inner knowledge is Oneness
Outer knowledge – separation
Outside overloaded
Inside empty…

Nothing is All
And All is Nothing…
