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 The Kernel9 hours ago           

I do not believe or understand that a soul is born into a family for no reason.  I believe that, for example, genetic law is predicated by or is an expression of higher spiritual law.  Although you may not know or understand why things are the way they are, you can understand they are that way for a reason.  The more we can understand how this spiritual law impact on physical reality in terms of outcomes in our daily lives, the more we are able direct and influence results.

If that is so, then our lives are predestined and we ride along in our coach and simply view what takes place in our lives like a  tourist on a tour bus. Or perhaps we are just  actors on stage acting out parts that are written in stone and we cannot depart from the script.

Or is it possible that life is like an improv where we are presented with scenarios and we can improvise our own part in the drama of life? 

 

Or are we puppet masters.. Our souls making the decisions and then acting them out in our bodies.

What is the "truth" kernel. Someday we will know the  truth ... and then what? Are  we simply judged for our actions or performance in the play and them move on to another stage and storyline?

Or are we judged and then sentenced to some eternal placed based on our performance?

 

Or is there just now and we do with it what we choose and suffer the consequences of our choices good or bad in a never ending changing of form of our energy patterns?

Does our soul survive as a sapient awareness or does it dissipate into the air get warmed by the sunshine become as Johnny Cash once sang, A single drop of rain, but I will remain and I'll be back again and again and again and again?

Comment by James Germiquet on February 17, 2012 at 10:14am

Kernel

I wonder if I am becoming more and more buddhist like. What is happiness and satisfaction comprised of, getting what you want? Or wanting what you get? Being satisfied whatever your fate. Striving  for Right thinking and right doing? How do I get all this from the  teachings of Christ?

Truth is not the domain of any religion be it christian or buddhist or jewish or muslim or hindu. Truth just is and it is expressed on a level far above any religion or religious expression of it. Whether one is indian or chinese or white or black or young or old, if one sees another person hungry or thirsty will they not express love and compassion by feeding them and giving them water as they would want someone to do to them, or will they hoard their food and water and deny the other person perhaps even take their shoes because they will soon not need them, out of fear for their own survival  needs?

Is their a universal understanding of good and evil?

What profit it a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?

There is no greater love than this that a man would give his life to save another.

Does any of the above really mean anything or are they just platitudes?

Comment by Kernel John on February 17, 2012 at 12:33pm

In a state of body consciousness (I am a body that has a soul) it is difficult to find answers to the questions you ask and points you bring up.  However, as one becomes soul conscious, (I am a soul, I have a body), one is better able to receive insight into many otherwise elusive questions of a non-physical nature.  Have you begun to experience yourself as a soul?  Have you brought or traced your consciousness of the self/soul from your extremities, for example, to that area between your eyebrows?  As you are able to exercise this facility with increasing ease, you will be able to better recognize the true nature of the self.  In a state of body consciousness, one is limited to a physical view of spiritual questions.

Comment by James Germiquet on February 17, 2012 at 2:02pm

 

And so Kernel, why are you here? If you are unable to answer questions dealing with the physical life, why don't you move on?

This physical life I would think are for people who can experience it and enjoy it and answer the questions on how to best function in this physical reality which it seems you are unable to do.

When I draw my conscious self up all I get is a bunch of white bubbles and a bit of a head ache. Is that what I am suppose to get or should I be looking for something different or are these white bubbles or circles, the true nature of myself?

Comment by James Germiquet on February 17, 2012 at 2:04pm

above unable to do means .. unable to answer the questions about the physical reality and how to embrace what I believe we were given to enjoy not escape from. It seems everyone escapes from it soon enough anyway.

Comment by Kernel John on February 17, 2012 at 3:46pm

I am here to share information of a spiritual kind and to receive the ideas and input of others. 

Listening to, as well as presenting opposing points of view is important, James, but I am not here to heroically defend anything, endlessly attack the appropriateness of other belief systems or justify the importance or validity of my belief systems to me over others. 

I am here to be as genuine and forthright as I can be.  I am not here to put other people down in order to build myself up and, I am not here to toy with or berate others.  I am genuine. 

In addition to what I have just said, James, why then are you here? What do you hope to gain from your participation?  

Comment by James Germiquet on February 17, 2012 at 8:56pm

 

Perhaps the same as you Kernel, perhaps just  the same as you.

perhaps that is what we are all suppose  to be here to do.

Comment by Kernel John on February 17, 2012 at 10:38pm

This is not what I maintain, my friend.  We are all here to experience and express.  This is a fundamental expression of the knowledge. 

These are the instructions in his final coming. . .  in this kalpa in this Kaliyug (Iron Age). 

By now, you now know what this means.  Take it or leave it. . . . . 

We are now receiving God's powers and blessings.

Take it or leave it - while knowing, all at the same time, you are now in position to receive God's power and blessings.  Is this not the most joyous of all occasions? 

Do you not see what you have learned thus far?

Comment by Robert DeFord on February 18, 2012 at 9:04am

Kernal says... We are all here to experience and express.  This is a fundamental expression of the knowledge. 

On a deeper and "more" realistic level we (I) am here to wake up!

Wake up to what?

Wake up my soul..my one and only True self, and to become fully soul conscious or soul conscious (see Bucke's "Cosmic consciousness for more  details and an analysis of several individuals that have "apparently" achieved this exalted and rare state of mind.

Comment by James Germiquet on February 18, 2012 at 2:09pm

 

Maybe I should watch the  Matrix  again?

Anyway it seems this is the dawning of the age of Aquarius and everyone seems to be awakening. People from all belief systems and cultures.

People claiming to be channelling, aliens or spirits. Are we facing a new awakening 

 or

are we facing an Armageddon. Because there is a New World Order being  ushered in and the troops are all stationed around the middle east.

or

Will nature/god be the cause of our Grande Finale as we  exit this physical reality in a big bang and enter into a new reality freed from our bondage to these human appendages forever?
