NATURE OF THE SOUL

Nature of the soul




Nature of the soul

In its essence (as a reflection of the Spirit), the soul never experiences the pangs of birth and death. The soul never loses touch with the immortal Spirit and does not lose its identity, returning back to Him. The soul passes through the gates of many births, and its existence does not stop. Being born in a particular body, she does not feel the birth; it exists eternally, being unaffected by magic fingers changing maya. Soul forever (past, present and future) is unchanged and remains the way it was always not having age, unchanged since time immemorial. Inhabiting the mortal body and immortal soul is a constant in all cycles of destruction of the body; she does not feel the taste of death, even when a person comes time to drink the bitter cup final.
Body, which is part of the matter, has to pass through six peculiar impermanent nature of transformations: birth, existence, development, change, decay, destruction. A man living in mortal body, forget about abiding in him eternal soul; he identified with the body consciousness perceives only six above-mentioned conditions. Sage through meditation learns to distinguish the immortal soul from its transient disembodied. Those who believe that the Absolute Spirit (eternal omniscient and always new Bliss) is immortal, one must also accept as truth that His reflection - soul is immortal, too, even if it is enclosed in a mortal body. Since God is immortal, every human soul, created in the image and likeness of God, must also be immortal.
The distinction between soul and spirit is what the Spirit is eternal omnipresent omniscient always new joy, whereas the soul is hidden in every being individualized reflection eternal omniscient ever new joy.

Soul as the rays of the Spirit

Souls are the rays of the Spirit, individualized as his shapeless "atoms" and "tissue". Just as the sun and the sun's rays are integrated, soul coexist with the Spirit and in essence one with Him. All material forms belong to the phenomenal world; their very being alienated from the Spirit, so they are constantly changing. Phenomena emerged from the noumenon and inextricably linked to it. But he, being Spirit, unchangeable, and transcendent. In contact with mental tools (feelings, mind and ego) the outer surface of the consciousness of the soul is subject to influences perturbations of Nature, but the essence of the soul remains intact.
Townsfolk do not know what the soul is, as it enters into the physical body, and where, having stayed long in it goes.Billions of people mysteriously come to the earth and as mysteriously go. Therefore, the average person can not help but wonder, whether the soul dies with the dying body.
Illustrate the nature and immortality of the soul will help the following analogy. (All analogies are imperfect, but they help the mind vividly imagine an abstract concept). In a cup of water reflects the moon. Then divide the cup and the water spreads. What happened to the reflection of the moon? We can say that it has returned to its indivisible unity with the Moon. If put under the moonlight with another cup of water, will Reincarnation: A new reflection of the moon!So the soul is reflected in the vessel body, mind filled with water; in it we see limited outside of the body the soul-moon - a reflection of the ever-present Spirit of the Moon. After the destruction of the cup-body "reflection of the Moon" may temporarily disappear in the Spirit, but desires and karma, resulting from the abuse of free will bestowed upon reflection of the Spirit (the soul), forcing her to again become the "Moon", reflected in other bodily cup. Thus, although the human body are subject to change and death, the indwelling soul is immortal.
After the destruction of the cups reflected the moon, which was limited to the vessel, becomes one with the moon shining in the sky. Similarly, the soul, completely free from the enslaving her desires, becomes one with the omnipresent Spirit.
Before you have total freedom, a person needs to free his mind from the three bodies - the holders of the soul. With cases these are the physical body, formed of sixteen elements, the astral body, is divided into nineteen elements and the causal body, consisting of thirty-five elementary ideas. The physical body is built of flesh and blood, astral - from the mind and life energy, and causal is a wreath of wisdom and always new bliss.

Exemption from the three-body

Came forth from God thirty five ideas in the form of the causal body is the matrix of the human being. These are the basic ideas (mental strength) that are required to create the astral and physical bodies. Nineteen of these ideas are manifested as the astral body, which includes the ten senses, the five energies of life, the ego, perception, mind and intellect. The remaining sixteen ideas turn into sixteen main elements of the gross body. In other words, before God created the physical body, consisting of atoms of iron, phosphorus, calcium, and so on, our and subtle astral body composed of lifetrons, he put together the ideas of the causal body. Each of these three bodies have their own specific functions. Dense physical body is the result of the commodification of energy, the astral body is formed from the forces of the mind and life energy, and causal is almost a pure manifestation of cosmic consciousness.
We can say that the physical body depends on the food, the astral body is dependent on the energy, will and the evolution of thought, the causal body eats nectar of wisdom and bliss. The soul is covered with the three bodies. At the death of the physical body is destroyed, and the other two bodies (astral and causal) are held together by desires and unproven karma. Soul clad in these two bodies, re-reincarnated in new physical forms. When using meditation manages to defeat all the desires, the walls three dungeons (bodies) are crumbling, and the soul becomes Spirit.
Create a general idea of ​​the return of the soul to the Spirit will, again, the analogy. Perfect human consciousness, as it dissolves in the Ocean of God. Those soul-wave, which is not affected by storms posthumous desires, becomes absolutely Oceanic Spirit. Becoming Spirit, they find the ubiquitous memory - including an individual consciousness of his own wave of the past. Completely fused with the Ocean Wave soul immersed in the Spirit, but still remembers how she got up from His Ocean, and returned again to the One.

Individuality of man is indestructible

Let's say, God became the soul of a particular death (due to an erroneous identification with the body) of a man named John. Through meditation, John reunited with God and found that before becoming John, he was God. Finding wisdom, John again becomes God. Being in the power of delusion, and death, John considered himself a soul-wave, which is separated from the Ocean Spirit. Then, extending his own mind, and seeing its base in the Spirit, he found that it's self-Ocean Spirit was his soul-wave returning now to the One Spirit. Although John the liberated soul and become one with the Spirit, he retained his individuality - in the sense that he always remembers and knows what was once John, soul-wave, in the dark of methane on the surface of the Ocean Spirit. When the mortal becomes immortal John John, he does not lose himself, and realizes that John was (a mortal man) as the soul-wave is John (immortal man) as the Ocean Spirit. Sage John loses visibility of its separation from God - the awakened soul-wave gets rid of the perceptions of their isolation from the Ocean Spirit.
Individuality as human beings can not be the real take away from him. When the illusion dies enslaved man, his soul simply changes his whereabouts; when it leaves your body liberated yogi, the soul extends to the limits of the limitless Spirit!
It is not necessary to look at the deeper truths as a metaphysical abstraction - they should be applied in everyday life. In particular, when the Cosmic Illusion confronts you with the disease, physical suffering, death and dark thoughts about the impermanence of the body should be confident counter these negative promptings of the memory that the "I" as a reflection of the spiritual immortality always remains true to himself and is not subject to the whims of change.
The true "I" has the following properties: it is born of the body at birth; it is eternal, though his bodily abode is perishable; sensing changes, it remains the same; it is always the same, although it seems that in a long journey of reincarnation (which will eventually lead to God) soul countless times changes its appearance; the soul does not die with the death of the body; soul does not lose its identity even when he returns to the eternal existence of the Spirit.
