|The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 2:15pm On Jan 25, 2016|
and so it started, long long time ago. in a land that is no land that exist beyond time and space.
souls were unconscious atoms in the body of God. within God came the desire for these unconscious atoms , which are integral part of itself, to gain consciousness and come to full realization of their relationship with It.
from God then issued forth its word, the creative force, the ECK, the Holy Spirit with which it created the universes which will form the school for the training of souls .
and so the journey began

from the ocean of love and mercy where dwelleth the Sugmad, God, the ECK, Divine Spirit issued forth creating numerous worlds .
the first 5 planes to be created where worlds of pure spirit. the pure spiritual planes where no opposites exist and all is in unity with God.
in these planes there are neither male nor female, soul exist here in its pure form , a neuter atom of God .
these planes are filled with the pure light and sound of God .
the nature of these planes did not allow for souls growth as soul was lost in play called lila and enjoyed the bliss of these heavenly worlds.
then the Sugmad saw the need to create further worlds that will serve the purpose of helping souls mature.
then began the creation of the lower universes . the worlds of matter, polarity, space and time.
and the journey of souls continued

the creation of the lower universes commenced with the mixture of spirit and matter, with the planes closer to the pure spiritual planes having more spirit than matter and hence being finer in vibration.
the planes as created in order of vibration included the etheric, mental, causal, astral and finally the physical planes.
souls were sent down to these planes to take up abode and start their schooling .
these schooling is to takes millions of lifetimes as soul moves from plane to plane gathering the much needed experiences it needs to grow .
|Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 8:22am On Jan 29, 2016|
With the creation of the lower universes complete, the Kal Niranjan was placed in charge of the lower worlds. and his duty is to ensure that no impure soul will enter the pure heavenly worlds. all souls are to continue their schooling in the lower worlds until they become mature only then can they go back home.
souls were given their curriculum which included the five passions of the mind. soul is to master these passions which will require mastering the law of love. only when soul masters these passions and imbibes the five virtues of the Holy Spirit can the doors of heaven be open to it.
the kal whom some know as the Devil, works for the Supreme Deity and gives regular exams to souls in the form of temptations and trials to see whether soul has mastered any of the passions.

and the schooling started .
the.curriculum comprised of the passions of the mind and they were to be mastered and replaced with the five virtues of ECK, The Holy Spirit.
the five passions include:
4. Undue Attachment to material things
out of these passions each soul was given a lead passion which formed its Adi Karma . with that passion in tow , the game of life was kick started and so the journey continued .

I have no intention of mocking your personal religious beliefs ( which is what these are ).
But, once it is hawked in a public forum, it behoves me, all of us, to put it to critical analysis.
Therefore, I hope you won't mind if I ask or suggest that , apart from good poetry, creative imagination and wishful fantasies, kindly enlighten us as from whence comes such fanciful knowledge or fairy tales ?
|Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 2:02pm On Jan 31, 2016|
in order to graduate from the school of life, soul has to master the five passions of the mind and replace them with the five virtues of the Holy Spirit .
the five virtues are as follows:
1. Right Discrimination
2. tolerance and forgiveness
the key to mastering the passions of the mind lies in mastering the law of love which is the ultimate of all the spiritual laws of life
|Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 8:58pm On Feb 01, 2016|
with the creation of the lower universes, God put in place spiritual laws to govern the universes and keep the worlds moving smoothly.
to kick start the schooling of souls, the law of karma, cause and effect, was put into motion. this law brings back to soul every action that it put into motion so that soul can see if that action will help it to grow or not.
for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. prodded by the five passions of the mind soul put several causes into motion. some who were controlled by greed went into acquisition of other people's property, those controlled by anger will strike at others at little provocation.
there is never an excuse for any action taken by soul for every soul will be made to take full responsibility for all its actions. the law of karma ensures just that

as the game of life continued, with every thought, word and action put forth by soul it started accumulating daily karma.
these are duly recorded in each souls ledger with negative actions entered into the debit column as a debt owed to life and positive actions entered into the credit column which will later form the so-called goodluck or windfall that comes to an individual .
soul continues these processes of generating daily karma until the end of its physical life on earth .
|Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 9:05am On Feb 03, 2016|
as souls lifetime on earth comes to an end, the physical body is discarded and soul moves to the next plane, the astral plane where it enters the hall of judgement
in this court, there is no defense lawyer and no arguments tendered for or against.
the records of soul is reviewed and the resulting judgement based on the credits and debits earned by soul and the lessons learnt and those not learnt forms the basis of the soul's next incarnation.
this forms the fate karma of soul and this fate karma is what determines the conditions of life the soul will meet in its next incarnation and so the journey continues .

before soul reincarnates , the lords of karma goes through that souls records and pinpoints the lessons that it needs to master. the debits that the soul incurred determines the conditions that will await it at birth.
this explains why there are congenital birth defects like a child being born blind or deaf etc. these are not mistakes. there are no mistakes in creation .
everything is as it should be . God does not play favoritism. every soul gets its just rewards and death is not an escape just another chapter to the journey of soul.
the law of karma brings divine justice and balance to all actions undertaken by soul.

When master Jesus was about to depart from 120 apostles he told them that he will send them the holy spirit that will lead them to all truth, could this be the hidden truth? please ride on! I'am here, very interesting.
|Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 11:25am On Feb 06, 2016|
before soul reincarnates on earth, a lot of preparation goes into the choice of parents, the race, the country etc are chosen carefully to enable soul to have experiences that will enhance its spiritual growth.
the physical body which soul is to inhabit is just like a cloth or you can compare it to a car where soul is the driver.
once conception occurs the soul that has chosen that particular body usually hovers around the mother. and from time to time it slips into the body to get used to it .
this process continues until the time comes for delivery of the baby.

Nice one Ben. May the blessings be.

thanks my brother. may the blessings be
|Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 6:57pm On Feb 07, 2016|
as the big day arrives final preparations are made and as the baby is delivered from the womb soul enters the body and fully activates it .
in order to help soul fully adjust to the new environment and conditions, a veil is placed on its memories which makes soul to forget about life in the inner worlds and also its previous incarnations. this veil becomes stronger as the child grows . by about six years of age , soul in the physical embodiment has completely forgotten about its previous lives on earth.
this veil is both a curse and a blessing depending on how you look at it.
the veil enables soul to fully concentrate on the present lifetime and to gather as much experience as possible.
the other side of the veil is due to the forgetfulness of soul, some people no longer believe in life after death and some even go as far as stating that God does not exist. all thanks to this veil.

It's nice reading your posts. Still, do you accept questions from well meaning people or people who are seeking the Truth? If yes then I or others may ask a few questions.
Thank you in advance.
|Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 12:01am On Feb 08, 2016|
of course I am always ready to answer questions to the best of my knowledge if of course the question is sincere and not out to ridicule or create arguments which to me is a waste of creative energy.

soul having reincarnated in another body on earth, now starts another phase of the journey of soul and which comprises of learning the lessons of love for which it was primarily sent to earth to do.
as soul in physical embodiments grows, its thoughts, words and actions from day to day create daily karma which of course goes into its ledger. already the fate karma has determined where soul will start the next round of lessons. some of the daily karma created are returned back to the individual and some are kept in storage for him which is known as reserve karma.
this reserve karma may not be worked off during a lifetime and it is what usually forms the fate karma.
it is also the existence of reserve karma that creates the illusion of people seemingly escaping from the results of their actions.
for example a man who steals millions of money entrusted to him to serve the public, may enjoy that particular life and live to a ripe old age without anything bad happening to him till his death. that karma he created is simply stored as reserve karma and will follow him to the next lifetime which may see that same individual working hard and acquiring great wealth only for the government to seize his wealth over a flimsy excuse and of course everybody will be screaming of violation of his human rights without remembering what he did in his past life. of course the veil has made sure that he does not remember.
so the saying still remains true, whatever a man soweth, so shall he reap. even death does not stop it.

the process of learning the lessons of life takes millions of lifetimes.
lifetime after lifetime soul gathers precious experiences which teaches it the value and importance of love .
it can take a soul as much as a thousand lifetimes just to learn contentment and do away with greed.
in the journey of soul there is no hurry and no compulsion .
soul is allowed to learn life lessons at its own pace. there is total free will for each soul.
more advanced souls always give a helping hand to younger less experienced souls to facilitate their journey back to God.
|Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 9:30pm On Feb 10, 2016|
in this journey of soul, there is only one path to travel and although many roads lead to that path it does not really matter.
as the almighty God created the universes, it did so through the word, the ECK, the Holy spirit which manifest as the light and the sound, the creative essence of God, like a giant wave issuing forth from the ocean of love and mercy it carried souls to the vast reaches of creation depositing them there to learn their lessons and mature.
it is this same wave, that takes souls who have finished their lessons back to God. this is the one true path that takes soul back to God. within the Holy spirit you find all truth and all souls are striving to become one and in tune with the ECK, the Holy Spirit.

as the journey of soul progresses many souls get lost in the play of life and completely forgets who and what they are. and why they are here . they now come to think that they are just the physical body and everything about them begins and ends with the physical body.
they also feel that their existence ends with the death of the physical body . they become so entrapped in the illusion of physical existence and will even go further to claim that God does not exist .
others become entrapped In the illusion of horrors that await them in the afterlife and such fears cuts them off from the joy of living life to the fullest.
it is all part of the schooling and the crown of victory awaits those who are able to see through these illusions and grasp the truth which has been embedded within soul .

as the journey of soul progresses, in order to help awaken those souls who have become entangled in the illusions of life, God sends more advanced souls who come as spiritual masters and dwells amongst men to help them remember that this earth is not their home and that they are here temporarily to learn the lessons of love and then to find their way back to God where they originally came from.
|Re: The Journey Of Soul by benodic: 8:54am On Feb 13, 2016|
souls having forgotten why they were on earth and having become entrapped in the illusions of material living were not ready to listen to any spiritual master who came to tell them that their home is not here and that they are strangers here. they will rather listen to those who tells them how to acquire more material wealth and create a great earthly kingdom.
so what did man do?
he hounded, maimed and killed many of the spiritual masters all in a bid to keep the truth out. the true spiritual teachings that they brought were hijacked and warped into a political and social system that panders to man's ego and created more illusions of divisions among men and the greatest illusion being that man now feels that his God is greater than another man's God which gives him the right to discriminate and persecute all those that does not bow to his God.
while in reality God is one and all souls are equally loved by It . and so the journey continued .
