Understanding the soul
As we describe the Journey of the Soul, we have reached Part 7 and in this part, once again an in-depth understanding of the Soul will be offered. It is important that unless and until a clear understanding of the Soul in every aspect is made known, any further description of the journey the Soul undertakes in this human world, will not help the reader grasp the significance of that journey.
The next part will begin a description of how the Soul should prepare itself to guarantee reaching Heavenly conditions in Paradise! But first, to know what is shared in this part is very important.
You are the Soul. You are traveling and that means that you, the Soul is using your body as a means to travel in this human dimension from the birth of the body until the body dies at the end of the journey. Have you not heard, “From dust you came and to dust you return"? In those days it was understood that you were the body and after leaving this dimension the body perished. Now we know that the body is not the real You. The real You is the Soul. Your body came from dust. At the end of the journey of the Soul, the body dies; goes back to dust, whilst the Soul continues its journey in another dimension. Therefore be aware of the Truth, that You will NOT die!
The Soul is an eternal entity. Why eternal? Eternal because it will not die. The body on the other hand will die. The body is a composed entity. The body dies and it decomposes.
The Soul is not a composed entity. The Soul is one single entity and therefore it does not decompose; it lives an eternal life.
At the time of death of the body, the soul disassociates itself from its link with the body. That is when the body composed of atoms, molecules, cells, tissues and organs looses the bonding and energizing power that has been generated from the Soul.
Who decides when the Soul will disassociate from the body? Then we have to ask ourselves another question, “Who decides when you should enter this human world or human dimension?” We come into this world through birth from the womb-world of the mother when the destined time arrived. In the same way, when the destined time arrives for the Soul to end its journey in this world, it disassociates itself from the body and the body dies!
As the Soul, you had no knowledge when was the destined moment to begin your journey associated with the body in the womb of the mother and then arrive into this outside human world at the time of the birth of the body. In exactly the same manner you the Soul will not know when the time arrives to leave this human dimension to step forward into the next spiritual dimension.
You the Soul could not choose when to arrive in this human dimension. You the Soul also could not choose into which country, and amongst what particular race to arrive in this human dimension. Think about it!
The body of every human being originated from dust! The essence of every Soul originated from the One Creator! The origins of both the body (the earth) and the Soul (The Creator) of every human being is identical! The only difference is the uniqueness and the power and capacity endowed by the Creator. No two human beings, whether body or Soul are created identical. What could be the reason for this uniqueness? Could it be for the sake of uniqueness of function? May be!
All human beings belong to one body of mankind. In the body of a human being each and every cell in the human body has different allotted functions to perform to maintain the health of the body. It can therefore be reasoned that this could be the meaning of this uniqueness in the creation of human beings!
As the Soul continues to journey on the Highway of Life in this human dimension, more truths related to the body and Soul will be revealed. At the same time you will become aware of the Truth as to how to develop your soul, to reach Paradise!
Suffice it for the present to know and understand that since the Soul and that is you, upon arriving in this human world, could not exercise the choice to be associated with the body of a woman or a man, to arrive in any particular country on this planet, amongst any particular race, endowed with any quantum of intelligence, capacity or power, to now claim superiority or otherwise amongst the body of humankind, is sheer sacrilege!
Rather than spending time claiming or comparing about one’s endowment; the claim which in these days many in ignorance voice vehemently and that is, to be more superior than the other, it will be best to know and understand the purpose for which you the Soul is sent by The Creator to travel in this human dimension!
That you are an eternal spiritual entity; the Soul, using the body as a vehicle to travel in this human dimension for a prescribed period of time, you now know! You also know that this travel is for a specific purpose. What you do not know is what that purpose is! Many make statements about this purpose plucked out of their fertile imaginations to express vehemently that they know what that purpose is! Are they right? As the Soul continues to travel slowly and surely the meaning of that purpose will become very clear. The reader must be prepared to experience wonderment when the nature of the purpose is released for eyes to see and minds to understand!
This Part 7 will end with an episode that explains in a way the mind can understand, why the world we are living in, reflects so much confusion and why people are satisfied to live in the darkness of ignorance and not in the light of the knowledge of Truth!
This is how it happened. During the more than 40 years of research to want to know why the body of mankind we are living in, is being torn apart by all sorts of crimes, like wars, brutality, murder, rape, corruption etc., etc., mostly generated by all sorts of selfishness and prejudices; besides the intensive study that I have undertaken during this period, some answers are shown to me in dreams.
One night after prayer I had wanted to know why people do to others what they do not prefer others to do to themselves! Instead they are bent on accumulating by hook or crook, material riches as if they are going to enjoy its benefits for all time!
That night I had a dream! My office colleague had just shifted home and now stayed with his family next to my house. That morning I wanted some books to reach the office early. Just after I woke, I saw through the window my colleague entering his car to leave home. I wondered whether he was going to office early. Anyway I rushed out to ask him whether he was going to office so early and if so, will he take my books with him. By the time I reached him, he had started the car and was about to drive away. I asked him where he was going so early. Then what happened next, surprised me.
He stopped the car and looked at me, rubbing his balding head. For a while he stared at me and then answered, “Where am I going? I do not know where?” Wondering whether he was sick or having some memory problems I did not pursue further and then backed out thanking him. Immediately I came out of my sleep.
Now awake, I wondered whether this dream like many others constitute an answer to my question. Slowly it became very clear; the meaning of my dream.
Here was a man about to drive away without knowing where his destination is. The majority of the people in this world travel every moment of their lives and they are absolutely unaware where they are going to! They do not know that they are experiencing two forms of travel. One, their body is traveling. They are very aware of that and they also know that destination. That destination is to acquire as much material possessions. Tow they Soul is traveling. Do they know the destination of the travelling Soul? All they do is exist, not live! Had they known the purpose of their journey they will know where they are going to reach and for what purpose! They would have known how to read spiritual milestones and become responsible to guide themselves right to fulfill the purpose of their travel! If they do not know what is the purpose of their travel, they will be satisfied to go along with the crowd not caring where they reach!
This is one facet of knowledge the Soul must know. What is the purpose of your being created to live as a human being on planet earth?
In the next part, Part 8 as the Soul travels it will become aware of the purpose of its travel in this human dimension.
Until we meet again, here is wishing you the very best life can offer, as you act in right deeds to attract right bounties!
