Awareness is Everything and the Soul is All that We Have

 What is a soul?  Many talk about ‘soul’, but few can truly understand what a soul is, what powers it contains, where it comes from, and how to live from soul consciousness.

George Washington Carver, a deeply spiritual man wrote in the tiny book by Glenn Clark  called The Man Who Talks With the Flowers, that:

“The eye is the window to the soul.  The soul cannot be measured out.  The soul is infinite.  I am not trying to describe the soul, but the soul is all that we have that is worth living for–all that we have.  You take that away and we become worse than the beasts in the field.  But a thing that is incarnate with the life of the soul, like a little flower, you can reach out and look into and suddenly find that you are taking hold of the things that lift you up and carry you along and make people love you and give you the joy of life and the joy of living and the joy of having come into the place God has for you, and the exuberance of filling that place in life. How does it do this?  Do you know?  Neither do I.”

Truly only the Mother/Father of all souls comes and introduces us to Her/Himself and to our own soul.  

“The soul is a very subtle aspect that has to be understood.  Souls are extremely subtle and imperishable. Neither a soul nor his part can be destroyed.  It is very difficult for those with gross (purely material) intellects to understand these things. This is why the Divine Father, the Father of all Souls, comes at this time and makes you realize this”. {Murli, 5/29/2015}

The Murli also translates as God’s Flute and is the precious guidance which is the basis of the teachings of Raja Yoga as spoken through Prajapita Brahma from the mind and heart of the Incorporal Supreme Soul.  This began in a small part of India called Karachi in the early 1930’s, before the partition of Pakistan, and continues to this day on Mt. Abu in Rajasthan, India.

The murli tunes one into the wavelength of the Creator’s Mind.  As one thinks about the murli and remembers the Almighty, one’s subconscious is cleared, day by day, moment by moment, drop by drop and the soul comes into awareness of the Self and its most dearly Beloved Mother Father.  The thoughts shared from the Mind of the One are fresh everyday.

 The subconscious as you probably know is full of old patterns, our deepest images, ingrained habits, belief systems, and conditionings from our many lives. What you may not know is that all of this is located (recorded) within your soul.

Also within your soul is the intellect or conscience;  the part of you that can discern right from wrong.  The intellect can  give direction to your mind and subconscious and absorb truth, power, and values from the greatest of all souls, the Supreme Soul through a method of remembrance practiced by Raja Yogis.  The intellect becomes divine through the practice of this method of remembrance.

As for the mind, it is the third aspect of the soul.  Yes, the mind, too, is contained within the soul, not within the brain.  The mind’s main function is to generate thoughts.  During the course of your incarnations, your intellect has grown weaker and weaker and has taken a “back seat” to your mind.

This has resulted in the state of the mind today becoming overwhelmed and not knowing which way to turn regarding the functions of discernment, which it was never designed to handle.  Your mind was not designed to make decisions, it must be guided to focus on worthwhile things and trained from its present “monkey-like state” back into partnership with your intellect.

While your mind is great at creating thoughts,  the role of discernment belongs to your intellect.  It is your intellect which has the capacity to discern which thoughts are valuable, worthy, and to be acted upon and which are not.  Your intellect can be awakened through a wonderful form of meditation/remembrance practiced by many souls around the planet.

Each soul contains all this and more!  Along with volumes of  recorded impressions, stored over lifetimes of experiences, you, the soul also contains knowledge. Nonetheless, you do not take up an iota of space.  You, the soul are bodiless.  Therefore you must take a body on loan in order to play your various roles/parts upon the earth, during your many incarnations.  Sadly, today, most of us have come to identify more with our temporary ‘costume’ than with the eternal, unlimited aspect of our true selves.

Because you, the soul is subtle and invisible, you and the rest of us have literally lost “sight” of it and have come to consider our identity as limited, material beings of flesh, blood, and bone.

Raja Yoga Meditation is the divine art of giving power back to the intellect, so it may responsibly and lovingly guide the wildness of the mind into peacefully churning true, powerful thoughts about the soul, the universe, and the Supreme Soul.

For example: what is the simplest, truest statement that can be churned about the nature of you, the soul?  What quality, most lacking in the mind, is, in fact, the core quality of you and every soul?

The answer, may come as a surprise!  PEACE.   Peace is our true, natural and original state.  Peace lives within each and every soul.

Raja Yoga is the method of turning your attention inward, of moving your awareness to the center of your forehead, where YOU, the living soul sit, as the knowledgable and peaceful driver of your vehicle, the body.

Feel into this space, to know your true nature. Turn away from all other thoughts for just a minute.  What are you feeling?  Peaceful? Loving? Powerful? Blissful?

All of these states are aspects of you, the invisible, eternal being.  This is where  you’ll find the peace and love and power and bliss that you have been seeking outside, in the world of change!  Its all within you.  No wonder you wish to experience it again.

Peace and serenity are often the first states we experience when we journey inward.

Experiment with this thought:  “I am a peaceful soul”.  Repeat it again, quietly, confidently. OM SHANTI.  Say it  from the depth of your being.  Feel the unchanging reality behind it. Feel that you are a peaceful soul.

As your awareness of your Original State of Peace increases, it begins to color the atmosphere around you. Everything becomes touched by your peace.

This peace leads us deeper into a place of silence.  Within this silence, so much exists!  The answers you seek can be found within this silence.

The question of “who am I?” is realized as we sit with it each day.

“Since the soul can not be seen with the physical eyes, it must be realized.”                                                                          (Murli)

This practice will change the way you see yourself.  As you meditate deeply on the thought that you are a peaceful soul, your consciousness opens the channel allowing peace to flow into your thoughts, words, and deeds.   You will begin to see yourself as a spiritual being interacting with the physical world.  Your state of peace will begin to affect the world around you, rather than the other way around!  Peace is contagious. As you emanate the quality of peace, many around you will also be inspired to experience peace within.

There is a “time for everything” and “everything has its time”.  Both in the physical realms as well as in our spiritual endeavors, “timing is everything”.

Are there times when meditation and self- inquiry are most fruitful?

Yes, it is well known and  understood by yogis and avid mediators that the early morning hours from 2 to 5 a.m. are the sweetest for revealing the Self and its connection with the Divine.

This is the best (but not only) time for receiving nourishment and power from the Ocean of Peace.  Sunset from 6:30pm to 7:30pm is another potent time.  Also spending time right before sleep connecting with your peaceful core is also very valuable to insure deep, peaceful rest.

Now that you have more awareness of the soul and its original nature, you can begin to explore through guided meditations at websites (as listed below), at Raja Yoga Centers across the world, and even right here on Kauai,  at Baba’s House in Kilauea.  Call to set up your free appointment to meditate with experienced yogis…808-639-9436.  OM SHANTI~YOU ARE A PEACEFUL SOUL!
