What God Teaches

 Brahma Kumaris Spiritual University
From: Eternal Drama of Souls, Matter and God
By:
 Raja Yogi B.K. Jagdish Chander; 1983

 

Chapter: CAN LIFE BE CREATED IN A TEST TUBE?
“Besides the body, there is an entity that has consciousness as its essential nature.  This conscient entity uses its “living” body as an assemblage of instruments of perception and action.  It experiences pleasure and pain also through the medium of the “living” body. This is called “soul”.  The body “lives” and dies but the soul lives forever.  Know yourself as a soul and your living body as a wonderful medium for manifestation.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: THINGS, MADE OF MATTER ARE NOT MADE FOR THEMSELVES
“In this self-luminous minute point – the Soul – lie the impressions of all the incarnate existence of the self and from this point emerge all thoughts and in this occurs the feeling.  The purification of this self is the key to peace.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: INCIDENTS OF RE-BIRTH PROVE THE EXISTENCE OF THE SOUL
“If one is unable to reap the fruits of one’s actions in this life, one reaps them in the next.  Thus, the law of action remains inviolable.  Therefore, never must you indulge into bad action, for action goes with the soul wherever it goes.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: OUT-OF-THE BODY EXPERIENCE
“The soul is like a bird and the body is like a nest or a cage.  The body may also be compared to a five-horse carriage or a motor car and the soul to a driver.  The soul can move and act even without the body as a bird can fly out of a nest or a cage, or a man can walk out of his house, or even as a driver can move out of his vehicle.  Remember that the body is like a caravan safari which the soul will leave one day.  Therefore, let there be no attachment with the body.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: THE REAL STORY OF AN ANIMAL REBORN AS AN ANIMAL
“A human soul re-incarnates in human species, and a soul of the animal kind reincarnates in the animal species.  Souls of one kind differ from the souls of the other kind in respect of their innate abilities and potentialities – their mind and their Sanskaras or predispositions.  Each one reaps the fruits of its past actions in its own kind.  Being of human kind, a man ought, therefore, to have behaviour and qualities far above the animalistic one.
   - God Shiva


Chapter: BODY AND MIND OR CONSCIOUSNESS
“The body is constituted of elements of Matter.  Consciousness or Thought is neither an attribute of these elements nor of any combination of them.  Consciousness is an attribute or manifestation of a non-physical or a spiritual entity called soul.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: THE THOUGHT AND THE THINKER – both are Metaphysical
“Thought is the basis of all actions and it is the soul which thinks through the mechanism of the brain.  Good thoughts bring one peace and evil thoughts result in mental tension and peacelessness.  One should, therefore, know the self – the Thinker – and should purify the thoughts so as to be in peace and to spread vibrations of peace.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: IS MAN A BUNDLE OF THOUGHTS OR AN EPIPHENOMENON OF THE BRAIN?
“Thoughts and perceptions successively and consistently make their appearance and they pass, repass and glide away because soul, the conscient entity is constantly there.  The constant appearance of thoughts in a succession or a chain does not show the Mind is a process but that the Mind or soul constantly processes the stimuli or the sensory messages and perceives and reacts to them.  So consider yourself not a process or a bundle of successive thoughts but as one who observes this process and succession and is a subject and object of these.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: What is Mind and Where do Thoughts come From?
“You are not a body made of matter nor are your thoughts the electrical impulses of your brain.  You are a super-physical entity, called the Soul, whose thoughts and actions have a moral dimension.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: MAN IS NEITHER A MACHINE NOR A GENE
“Link your mind to Me and have full faith in Me and I will shower divine peace and bliss on you”
   - God Shiva  


Chapter: WHERE IN THE BODY IS SOUL LOCATED?
“You are a shining Point-of-Conscient Light, seated on the throne in the centre of the place between the two eye-brows.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: MIND OR SOUL IS ESSENTIAL FOR PERFORMANCE OF BRAIN
                FUNCTIONS
“Seated in the brain, it is the soul which receives information and understands it and perceives objects through the senses.  It is the soul which makes judgement and takes action through the appropriate mechanism of the brain and the body.  So, as a soul, you should judge between right and wrong and do only righteous actions.”
   - God Shiva  


Chapter: MEDITATION, ALTERTED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND STRESS ALSO INDICATE THE EXISTENCE OF THE SOUL
”Meditate lovefully if you aspire for deep bliss and lasting peace and a state of higher consciousness.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: SLEEP AND DREAM ALSO INDICATE THE EXISTENCE OF THE SOUL.
“Give up the slumber of ignorance and the somnolence of body-consciousness!  Arise and march towards your goal with zest and zeal for it is now Amrit Vela – the Time to wake-up and drink the nectar of Godly knowledge.”
   - God Shiva


Chapter: IS THERE A METAPHYSICAL MIND OR SOUL IN THE BRAIN?
“It is the soul that has the interest, the choice and the conscious will.  It is the soul that evaluates its own thoughts and appreciates and enjoys.  Knowing this, enjoy the bliss, appreciate the virtues, have strong will to root out evil and choose to be a yogi and thus will you be emancipated.”
   - God Shiva  


Chapter: BRAIN MEMORY AND SOUL
“It is the soul which remembers through the mechanism of the brain.  If one’s memory is associated with good and happy events, one gradually becomes of good and happy nature and if, on the other hand, one recollects again and again events that are associated with evil or sorrow, one becomes irritable, short tempered and despondent by nature.  One should, therefore, have only a short memory of such events and should better not hold these in one’s brain.”
   - God Shiva 


Chapter: SOUL AND THE CASES OF LOSS OF MEMORY
“The soul, because of a certain kind of amnesia, one cause of which is Māyā, has forgotten its true identity and also the Soul World from where it has come.  That memory is now being re-awakened.  Now, know thy self and have fresh memories of the self. the Supreme and of the sweet Home.”
   - God Shiva 


Chapter: PERMANENT MEMORY PROVES THE EXISTENCE OF THE SOUL
“It is the soul which has the conscient memory which is also associated with emotions. Every recollection stirs up or brings with it emotions and some experience.  One should, therefore, have constant memory of the Supreme Father and His Divine Acts and of the paradise, for these will give him a state of purity, peace and happiness.”
   - God Shiva  


Chapter: GENETIC SYSTEM AND RE-INCARNATION OF SOUL
“A soul gets a particular body in a particular family, in particular socio-economic, natural environment on the basis of its Karma and sanaskars (tendencies)” It can acquire new traits and alter the old tendencies by its efforts.  If you make these efforts based on Godly education, you can elevate yourself into an angelic state.
   - God Shiva


Chapter: YOU ARE A SOUL WHO CAN EXPERIENCE PEACE AND BLISS
“It is the soul which experiences Peace or Bliss and it is the soul and not the brain which has the emotions of rage or anxiety. The brain and the body are the mere mechanism of exteriorisation or arousal of emotions. You are a soul who can get elevated by sublimation and redirection of your emotions.”
   - God Shiva
  


Chapter: THE FORM OF ETERNAL SOUL, GOD AND THE THREE WORLDS
"The soul is an eternal and infinitesimal point of conscient and non-material light. It has a subtle aura or an oval-shaped effulgence — an orb — round it. It is like the minutest elliptical 'Light ball" which is subtler than Matter is, even at its subatomic level. When seen in a divine vision, it looks as a star appears from the earth. The soul is immortal. Its energy is inexhaustible. Know yourself as an immortal soul."
   - God Shiva


Chapter: SOULS COME FROM THE SOUL WORLD - far beyond the sun and the stars
"Beyond the sun and the stars, there is a Subtle World of Angels. Beyond that is another world where souls abide in the incorporeal, actionless, thoughtless and calm state. That world is the Soul World. All souls have come on earth from that world. That world is the souls' Sweet Home. The earth is a stage where souls play their part, taking body as a costume."
   - God Shiva


Chapter: SOULS CAN MOVE AT SPEED FASTER THAN LIGHT
"Soul can fly to any place in an infinitesimally short time. When a soul leaves its body in one country, it can fly to another country in almost no time. Soul has also the wings of Thought. With the wings of Thoughts and Love you can mentally fly to the Soul World in no time. This flight is called the voyage to God on the spaceship of remembrance. Wish you this happy journey! Bon Voyage!"
   - God Shiva
 


Chapter: EXPERIENCE OF SOUL AS A SEPARATE ENTITY
"The soul is an entity, who has existence separate from the body. But, it has committed the error of identifying itself with the body. If however, a person acquires the rational knowledge of the soul and practices soul-consciousness, he can experience withdrawal from the body and also his separate existence."
   - God Shiva


Chapter: SOUL- CONSCIOUSNESS IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS
"Man's many diseases are due to his emotional turmoil or his mental disturbance. Emotional upheaval is caused by one of the vices, or evils, called sex-lust, anger, ego, etc. which spoils his relationship with others and create a spurt or surge of disturbance in his mind. So, know that vices are cause of peacelessness and disease. If you stabilize in the self and attain swasthiti, you will have swasthya — health."
   - God Shiva


Chapter: MIND-BODY INTER-ACTION AND THE QUESTION OF HAPPINESS AND HEALTH
"Body-consciousness leads to fear, anger, tension and unsteady state of Mind. It leads to vices and peacelessness. Know that you are a soul. Soul-consciousness and peace will enable the soul to be righteous and to have positive thoughts which will give it peace."
   - God Shiva

Comment by Robert DeFord on February 25, 2012 at 10:32am

Thanks Kernal..more coming soon..you have many competing organizations today that claim to be the latest greatest "replacement for Jesus.  Take the Moonies for example..more later

Comment by Kernel John on February 25, 2012 at 12:55pm

Robert, there is no replacement for Jesus.  He is your Savior and this gives power and sustenance to your life - does it not? 

You should not worry about the perceived competition - like the Moonies or BKs.  They will take care of themselves according to God's plan.  You can have faith in that. 

If things don't work out as you expect them, do not worry or be discouraged.  Worry is wasted thought. 

Stay true to the teachings of Lord Jesus.  Right?  This is what you do best. 

My Father did not walk the earth but rather allowed us to be pulled from His perfect purity into the constant change of matter in order that we can each experience and express.  Can one experience and express, as we do, in a domain of unchanging perfection?  Of course not.  That's why we come here. . . . to be God's expression on earth.  If it had not been for Jesus, I would not be who I am today.  He is a great influence - is he not?

Comment by Kernel John on February 25, 2012 at 1:03pm

Robert, I find it curious that rather than attack the many fold quotations in the header above, you choose rather to attack me.  As you realized that this had little affect on this dense intellect, you then moved on to attack the BK organization itself.  By curious, I mean that I wonder why you do not address any of the actual statements listed in this discussion forum (header)?   

Comment by James Germiquet on February 25, 2012 at 1:23pm

 

I have to agree, BKINFO is hardly an unbiased source of "information" about the BK.

This does not sound like it comes from the Kernel we all know and love. It seems to come from a deeper source. At face value it seems to suggest one thing, but it leaves my spidey sense tingling. Or is that just my cynical suspicious nature showing through again?

Comment by Robert DeFord on February 25, 2012 at 2:04pm

Kernal says...My Father did not walk the earth but rather allowed us to be pulled from His perfect purity into the constant change of matter in order that we can each experience and express.  Can one experience and express, as we do, in a domain of unchanging perfection?


We have fallen from Father God's world of perfection called Paradise..or the Kingdom of God.  Jesus was sent down here to perform miracles and teach the Kingdom of God and solar contemplation to fill ourselves with His light found in His Kingdom.

The only "way" to touch God the Father is through Jesus His only Son/Sun for us.

Jesus is the Way..the Truth and Life itself everyone else that claims to be a savior is either crazy or deluded.

Jesus also teaches us to Wake Up to His world..within..after He is invited into your inner world.  Can't get any simp[leer than that and no crazy rules, sexual inhibitions, dietary do's and don'ts, and no list of laws and ordinances like the BK's teach and most religions including Christianity.

Jesus sets us free and he who is set free is free indeed.

I only care about the zombies Kernal..so sad and so unnecessary.  Jesus loves Zombies too.  I certainly am not worrying just rowing the boat..the life boat Kernal and plucking out the helpless hapless drowning zombies

Comment by Kernel John on February 25, 2012 at 2:29pm

No Robert, one cannot experience and express in an unchanging world or reality? 

Comment by James Germiquet on February 25, 2012 at 2:30pm

And all I the court jester have to say is

I danced in the morning when the world was young I danced in the moon, and the stars, and the sun

 I came down from Heaven and I danced on the Earth At Bethlehem I had my birth


Dance, then, wherever you may be I am the lord of the dance said he

And I lead you all wherever you may be And I lead you all in the dance said he


I danced for the Pharoah and the pharisees They wouldn't dance, they wouldn't follow me

I danced for the fishermen James and John They came with me so the dance went on


Dance, then, wherever you may be I am the lord of the dance said he

 And I lead you all wherever you may be And I lead you all in the dance said he


I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame The holy people said it was a shame

They ripped me and they stripped me and they hung me high Left me there on the cross to die


Dance, then, wherever you may be I am the lord of the dance said he

 And I lead you all wherever you may be And I lead you all in the dance said he


I danced on a Friday when the world turned black It's hard to dance with the devil on your back

They buried my body; they thought I was gone But I am the dance, and the dance goes on


Dance, then, wherever you may be I am the lord of the dance said he

 And I lead you all wherever you may be And I lead you all in the dance said he

Comment by Robert DeFord on February 25, 2012 at 2:31pm

Kernal these are y ansers not the made up or found in the waste bbasket at the franchise.  

Try again Sam and respond to each one if you want clarifacation...otherwise fold your handsw again and return to your usual  state of sleep where you dream you have a soul.

1/ What qualifies you to assume that I am asleep.

Because you talk in your sleep and say "I am a soul"  I am a point of light...all words from the BK menu.   You so far have not experienced your Soul/Self in the present moment as I have instructed you to con sider.  Therefore you are simply "surmising and hypothesizing a "theoretical soul that you "believe" you already have because the menu at the  franchise says you do.  What other source do you have to prove you already have soul beside that "Whopper" of a tale?

2/ What exactly do you mean by asleep.
