Re: Soul 1/5
We want to display shining divinity through our soul: This is the
instrument -- our instrument -- for the full potential manifesta-
tion of God Himself into His divinely created, celestial,
momentary thought of the universe. The whole wondrous creation
abides within us so that all we see out there, all we cognize and
attempt to fathom, is but a minuscule reflection, in essence, of
an infinite and potentially knowable grand structure of absolute
existence, comprising all that is known and all that could
possibly be known. The power and glory of human incarnation gives
praise to the everlasting possibility of God-energy, God-love,
spewing forth to every possible nuance that our creation could
possibly give rise to.
We attest to this from the very depths of being -- human
being -- which has but one possible final goal in its journey
through a conglomerate creation, and that is none other than
Divine Mind through Divine Love.
At the very center of our being where the very essence of life
breathes, our energy to animate according to some will--there lies
the essential core for everlasting happiness through procreation
of multifarious life-energy, entertaining a dance of phenomenal
existence through immersion into the noumenal Absolute.
Such being the nature of our spiritual, constitutional makeup,
it can be said that we move about on this earthly plane with a
kind of remnant for the grand structure of creation dwelling deep
within us. It can be reflected in all our sentient actions only
if we so "desire"; but that this trace is evident at the heart of
our being is univocally self-evident from personal revelation
only. For those wishing to succumb to the ignorance of density,
the despair of ignominious pursuits, insight into the nucleus of
being and its possibility of Becoming--dashing into the genesis of
ensuing evolutionary perfection--is but wanting!
That light permeates throughout the very fabric of our soul is
our solace for all intended Divine accomplishments by way of the
human kind. Our intention as groping creatures seething in the
dark but still seeking that yet unknown chalice of virtuosity and
consolation is prudence and tolerance--indeed, love too--for that
which is unveiled to our kind as the whole cosmos and celestial
structure unfolds before us--before our very being!
--ALP, 11-22-91 (Book 22)
Humans are special, unique: They have an individual soul.
Animals, on the other hand, share a group-soul.
A "Monad" is an entity of living existence and living
experience, a spark of the Divine Flame, partitioned, cut off, so
to speak, from its source, but still retaining all that the source
has, except in an individualized and concealed form. Having the
hidden splendor of its creator deep within, the Monad sets off on
a journey of "remembering" or becoming fulling conscious of its
Divine Nature -- its Divine Heritage! We call this a perpetual
state of "Becoming." The monad is the immortal part of man, and we
may also call this, Soul. The soul is the vital principle or very
breath of life in all creatures.
The soul gains experience of earthly life through an earthly
vehicle; in our case, it is humankind. The preparation of a
particular vehicle (a physical body) for the soul to gain a
certain variety of experience (this, and not that) is accomplished
through "choosing" different kinds of human forms with different
peculiarities and different inclinations. It is very easy to say
that you most certainly chose your particular parents in order to
attain a very specific kind of experience -- a learning
experience--that you deliberately decided to take on in this
A soul will enter a vehicle (a fetus) during the time of early
pregnancy; and it is possible for a human child to be born without
a soul: These are people with absolutely no conscience whatsoever,
no emotion on there face regardless of what they may be living out
in life. Society can attest well to such abhorrence.
When we look at ourselves, when we reflect within or upon
Self, then the soul is not something "in us," but rather it IS us!
It is NOT the vehicle (our body) that is us; it is just part of
the soul, or better, an "instrument" of the soul, and it uses this
instrument to move about and gain experience on a physical plane.
As we live our lives and experience different things on our
journey through creation, we may become "aware" of the soul's
Divine Nature; that is, become aware of OUR Divine Nature. It is
keenly a matter of our growth, our choices to seek greater
development, and our ability to fathom a larger reality and a
greater cosmic order that is not apparent or available to our
physical perception or intellectual comprehension; and this we do
by "letting go" of the binding attachments of physical
limitedness. It is a living experience to become conscious of our
soul's higher nature (OUR higher nature): It is NOT an
intellectual deliberation or a mental comprehension via concepts.
It is a "direct experience" of a higher celestial, more cosmic and
divine revelation of a greater order: We simply "fathom" the great
reality beyond the limited physical senses. Then we say,
"consciousness"! Consciousness of this or consciousness of that,
as in God Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, and Unity
Proof is an intellectual tool based on concepts and the human
physical mechanism of comprehension. These are all great brainy
functions, and we need them, too, to decipher those things we
"cognize" or "apprehend" outside of the physical limitations, but
the brain itself, with all its marvelous machinery, is not the
originator or seat of deeper spiritual experience -- just the
translator. "Being," as in "Pure Being," or the soul, is the
"experiencer" of deeper realities: body just feels and interprets
them, often trying to justify and prove them (our silly dense
There are great marvels hidden within the human story in its
Cosmic/Divine journey to full knowingness. We, as groping humans
screaming to aspire, simply must "wish" to know: We must seek!
This we made clear in our essay, "Soul" (11-22-91, Book 22)
previously posted. We ask that you re-examine that work in light
of this continued explanation.
"An unexamined life is not worth living..." said a great greek
philosopher. Do we wish to examine who we really are? the source
and life or our very breath? And what if we come to know that we
are immensely greater than what we thought? You see, to be
greater, to become conscious of our Divine Heritage on the level
of personal experience, is not "thought of": it is a "direct
experience" transcending thought!
Let us "play" with these thoughts a little, and in this play
we will see (experience) the dance and play of creation!
--ALP, 11-25-91 (Book 22)
How do you know about humans? Couldn't you say that you know
something of human nature even though you may not have a keen
knowledge of all the facets of human nature? And wouldn't this
have something to do with the fact that you are a human? And
couldn't you find out more about the nature of humanity if it were
your particular inclination to have more exact knowledge
(experience) on the human kingdom?
So it is the same with the Soul (not souls). I speak of souls
from a position of personal experience because I am a soul, and it
is my inclination to have more intricate knowledge of my own
nature, whereas many others may be satisfied with a general
A soul is not some foreign entity that attaches itself me; it
IS me. What the soul is attaching itself to is the physical body.
The fact that I say ME, introspectively, is NOT my body, but my
soul! If I know anything about souls it is because I know about
me (not my body).
When you "reflect" (not necessarily "think"), then this is
your soul; these are qualities of the soul. The very essence of
you, who you really are, the breath of your life -- this is your
soul. What you attribute to your body in the forms of
afflictions, attributes, the sense of who you "think" you
are--this is your personality or your ego, and it is this which IS
the body, and it is this which dies upon physical death.
Anthony (me, overtly, as "lower" self) is a personality, an
ego: That which animates and gives life and power to Anthony is
Anthony's soul. And because I am in my soul or because my soul is
really who "I" am, then I can, if I wish, know about this soul,
Anthony. The fact that this soul takes on a physical body, which
becomes an Anthony, and a personality/ego which is Anthony, is the
way the soul, my soul (my me...I) chooses to express itself in
this life-cycle, giving it all the experiences Anthony has had,
both the painful and the joyful. These are the learning
experiences my soul has chosen at this point in its journey
through creation -- on its journey in the process of "remembering"
or becoming conscious of my own inherent Divine Nature, as we
The human has several means of gaining knowledge of its
environment. There is inference, testimony, and "direct
experience." The first two are germane to western society. The
third, direct experience, is little known in the occident, but is
nonetheless a means of gaining knowledge of Self and
environment, which is more valid than inference or testimony. This
validity is based on fathoming directly (not through thinking) the
internal structure of creation, life, existence, and the exact
nature of the universe within which we have our sentient/Divine
being. It is EVERY human's birthright to have (acquire?) this
knowledge, and it is "apprehended" through "direct experience":
Most of the western culture is simply unaware of this means of
gaining knowledge directly!
If any of this requires validation on your part, then don't
take my word for it. Simply experience it for yourself (for your
--ALP, 11-26-91 (Book 22)
One basic premise in spiritual investigation and spiritual
attainment is: Don't's ask the question if you don't want to hear
I am always happy and eager to answer your questions, but I do
this for discernment (mine & yours) and NOT for controversy or
argumentation, so I will address your inquiry once, and I will not
dispute your manner of reception. (Behold, Parts 1-6 [3-1-87,
Book 9] have addressed these issues before.)
Did you not read paragraph 2 of part 2 on the essay on Soul,
where is says "Proof is an intellectual tool...." Was this not
clear? My purpose in these writings -- in my spiritual
investigation--is not to refute this dominating conscious view of
reality that you have. My purpose is to know and discern through
direct personal experience -- to fathom ultimate reality (both
physical and spiritual realms) through a "spiritual discernment,"
not a mental, conceptual one.
In a previous post to Zax 147, I spoke of the different means
by which a human may gain knowledge of creation; I spoke of
"direct experience," which may also be termed "direct cognition,"
spiritual apprehension (fathoming), or supersensual perception
(not to be allied with physical perception). I have written
several essays and commented in a previous post concerning this
subject. I cannot -- will not -- argue with you on the validity
of this means of ascertaining and deciphering the many wondrous
facets and crevices of our great spiritual/physical/divine
creation. You must simply "experience" this for yourself (your
I will neither give you "reason" nor "faith" to believe
anything I say! It is not a question of belief, for belief lies
in the domain of mental functioning, and what we are attempting to
convey lies transcendent to the mental periphery. Furthermore, it
matters little what I believe when it comes to the grand structure
of ultimate reality, for here (or there?) lies a structure (for
lack of a better word) of ultimate, Absolute existence,
irrespective of my particular belief system, or even yours. The
structure of our creation is such as it is: We either perceive it
(cognize it, spiritually) in its wholeness and entirety, or we do
not. This we made clear in "Cognitive Speculations on the
Qualifications for Spiritual Investigation: Spiritual Science &
Supersensible Research" (12-6-90, Book 20).
"Discerning fact from fancy..." is more than just a mere mental
judgment -- a pronouncement/declaration -- based on previous
perceptive and cognitive associations. There is soul to
consider -- the Self -- for we are, as the essential ingredient
and animating energy of our lives, the initial sole player for any
form of consciousness of reality. Let's be clear here: The soul
is the seat for all life experience (living experience)--not the
body! The body is simply an instrument used by the soul, the
soul's glove, so to speak. If we use the physical body only (its
brainy functions and mechanisms of conceptual comprehensibility)
for discernment of reality, then what we will have is a
fragmented, partial reality based on a limited sphere or
dimension, i.e., an earthly, physical plane. However, if we
include the soul in our fathoming of the ingredients that appear
to us as reality (and then, after the fact [the spiritual
experience], the brainy functions to conceptualize them for the
intellect to communicate), then we will come up with more of the
foundation of an ultimate reality, or better, that which gives
rise to the physical reality as we know it. This is what we
rightly mean by true spiritual investigation or supersensual
perception. It is NOT cognitive thinking, but that which
transcends thinking and gives rise to it (in which the cognitive
thinking, after the fact, plays the role of "translator").
Again, the evidence you seek is your own personal direct
experience, not another's! When you indeed have such a "spiritual
insight" into the nature of reality, you will surely know it: It
is not anything like a dream, thought, or fancy of any kind.
Spiritual fact is not physical fact: Physical fact is a collection
of information based on "empirical evidence." By "spiritual fact"
we really mean "spiritual insight," a spiritual perception unlike
any physical perception, but we use these cognitive terms to
relate to cognitive thinking those things or notions which lie
anterior to the thinking process, so that the language we use to
describe the spiritual realms is not indicative of what these
realms are like in terms of the authentic experience of them, but
rather serve as an indication of the direction to which we are
aiming, which can only become a part of one's awareness
(consciousness) by the direct experience of them, and NOT thinking
about them. Is this clear?
And, as a final note, I will have no mention or discussion of
"...channelling some universal soul..."; it has nothing
whatsoever to do with the present discussion.
