On the Love of the Soul — Brihad-Aranyaka Upanishad
Maitreyi said: “What should I then do with
possessions that cannot give me life eternal?
Give me instead your knowledge, O my Lord.”
On hearing this Yajnavalkya exclaimed:
“Dear you are to me, beloved, and dear are the words you say.
Come, sit down and I will teach; but hear my words with deep attention.”
Then spoke Yajnavalkya:
In truth, it is not for the love of a husband that a husband is dear;
but for the love of the Soul in the husband that a husband is dear.
In truth, it is not for the love of a wife that a wife is dear;
but for the love of the Soul in the wife that a wife is dear.
In truth, it is not for the love of children that children are dear;
but for the love of the Soul in children that children are dear.
In truth, it is not for the love of riches that riches are dear;
but for the love of the Soul in riches that riches are dear.
In truth, it is not for the love of religion that religion is dear;
but for the love of the Soul in religion that religion is dear.
In truth, it is not for the love of power that power is dear;
but for the love of the Soul in power that power is dear.
In truth, it is not for the love of the heavens that the heavens are dear;
but for the love of the Soul in the heavens that the heavens are dear.
In truth, it is not for the love of the gods that the gods are dear;
but for the love of the Soul in the gods that the gods are dear.
In truth, it is not for the love of creatures that creatures are dear;
but for the love of the Soul in creatures that creatures are dear.
In truth, it is not for the love of the all that the all is dear;
but for the love of the Soul in the all that the all is dear.
It is the Soul, the Spirit, the Self, that must be seen and be heard
and have our thoughts and meditation, O Maitreyi.
When the Soul is seen and heard, is though upon and is known,
then all that is becomes known… [all this is understood].
Religion, power, heavens, beings, gods, and all will abandon us
if we think that they are apart from the Soul.
Because religion, power, heavens, beings, gods, and all rest on the Soul.
— Brihad-Aranyaka Upanishad (600 B.C.)
translated by Juan Macaro
Penguin Books, Baltimore, 1965
The Supreme Being is an Ocean of Love and the Soul is a Drop from this Divine Ocean
108. This practice can be conducted easily and comfortably if the devotee has a little love for the Supreme Being. Without love it will be too hard and difficult to practice Surat Shabd Yoga [inner Light and Sound Meditation] with any good result to be obtained within a short time.
1. The Supreme Being, being a boundless Ocean of Spirit or Love and human being, being a drop or current of spirit or love from this Ocean, and love being the very essence and means of existence of the whole creation, it follows that no effort in any direction, temporal or spiritual, unless actuated by love or affectionate regard, can be crowned with success, and the work or labor rendered easy, sweet and harmonious.
2. Love is most sublime, having its origin in the highest region, the abode of the Supreme Being. In whatever heart it springs up, it will gradually raise and carry the fortunate possessor of this lofty and noble passion to the highest region.
3. All good qualities and goodness itself will gradually find their home in the heart in which love dwells, and all bad qualities will be rooted out by and by.
4. Whatever a man fully of pure love thinks or does is all wisdom, while the thoughts and works of worldly wise men are full of selfishness and folly.
5. Knowledge without love for the Supreme Being is futile and tends towards untruth or darkness or materialism, while love turns everything to good use and lead to enlightenment and truth. Even worldly love, such as filial and conjugal, is attended with goodness, happiness and comfort to all concerned. How much more good would then result to mankind in general if the same love become spiritual, and be directed towards the Supreme Being, the Merciful and Kind Parent of the whole creation.
6. Self-love brings on egotism or pride, and sows the seed of hatred, jealousy and disregard in the minds of kindred souls, associates and neighbors; while pure and sacred love for the Supreme Being creates in the heart humility, meekness and an affectionate regard for kindred spirits, neighbors and humanity in general.
7. Pure and holy love is always ready to spend (regardless) whatever it has for the sake of its beloved, the Supreme Father, and the benefit of mankind without any distinction; whereas self-love or love of world always tries to appropriate everything to itself, even at the risk and loss of others.
8. Pure and holy love is always ready to sacrifice anything whatever to gain admission into the presence of the Beloved, the Supreme Being; whereas self-love will never part with anything except for the sake of its own aggrandizement and indulgence in sensual pleasures.
9. The noble passion of love is most powerful and strong. It removes all obstacles and thorns in its way and discards all superstitions, doubts and skepticism.
10. Where pure love dwells there sheds the light of Grace, as it forms a link with the spirit or love current from its source, the Supreme Being.
11. Such is the strength and effect of affection and kind treatment that it subdues ferocity and other injurious and dangerous characteristics in beasts and other animals, that is to say, they begin to love and have an affectionate regard for their keepers and trainers.
12. A heart devoid of love or affection is as hard as stone, and does not form a suitable receptacle for the light of Heavenly Grace and Mercy.
13. Sincere love is reciprocal, so if one has a heart full of love for the Supreme Being, he is sure to be attracted towards Him by Grace, Mercy and Holy Light which will gradually illumine his inner self, and then all menial or worldly affections and desires will gradually disappear.
14. Love or the power of attraction is the basis of the whole creation and the cause of its sustenance and preservation.
15. The Supreme Being loves and takes special care of those who love Him with all their heart and soul, and gradually draws them towards Himself, the Grand Center of Pure Light and Attraction; while those whose hearts are imbued with worldly love and passions recede from this center, or in other words, they of themselves fly away towards the circumference or darkness and untruth.
16. Every wave of love rising in a lover’s heart brings tidings of goodness and joy from the Beloved, and every thought springing up in such a heart is a harbinger of good works and good services for the sake of the Beloved.
17. Love has no bounds, knows no restrictions, and is not limited by conditions, and like its source is extensive and far reaching in its beneficial results.

Astronomers Find Our Sun’s Long Lost Sibling
In a discovery which could shed new light on our Sun’s formation, astronomers at the University of Texas in Austin have identified its first solar sibling – a star almost certainly born from the same cloud of gas and dust as our star.
‘We want to know where we were born,’ said lead astronomer Ivan Ramirez in a recent statement from the University. ‘If we can figure out in what part of the galaxy the sun formed, we can constrain conditions on the early solar system. That could help us understand why we are here.’
While it’s been known that the Sun was born from a large cloud of gas and dust from which other stars doubtless emerged as well, this is the first brother star to the Sun astronomers have pinpointed so far…
O Soul (Surat)! Who are you and whence have you come? You are a ray from Purush (the Supreme Being) and an inhabitant of the purely Spiritual Region.
Swami Ji Maharaj/Sant Radhasoami Sahib
Freedom of Soul and Religions
Most people in this world belong to some religion or other. This depends upon their birth, company or outward education. But my dear Souls, God is not bound to any one particular religion, sect or creed. All religions give you some information about God, Soul, good and bad actions, the NAME of God and the Kingdom of God. Otherwise one has no knowledge. There is the Hidden Treasure in all religions. In them are pearls but few can dive to the bottom to obtain them. The body deteriorates but the Soul is imperishable. Our advice is to your Soul, which is free from religions. Nature treats all religions alike. The method of a Soul entering a Christian body is the same as in the case of a Mohammedan, Hindu, Parsi or Jew. In the same way, at the time of death the Soul of a Hindu leaves the body just as it leaves a Mohammedan body. The pain of teething and other ailments are suffered alike by people of all races.
In short, whatever your religion, race or sex, if you lift your Soul from her present seat in the body and spiritually cross the intervening Heavens as directed by Saints, you will surely reach Him. So let no religion hinder the progress of your Soul. You may take any help from your religion if it can help to open the Hidden Door through which you can pass into the Heavens. Otherwise, leave it respectfully alone. When you are unfettered, you will rise up easily. Religion gives you the hint and a Saint or Spiritual Master will help you to obtain it.

Scientists Offer Quantum Theory of Soul’s Existence
World-renowned quantum scientists say they can prove the existence of the soul.
American Dr. Stuart Hameroff and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose developed a quantum theory of consciousness asserting that our souls are contained inside structures called microtubules which live within our brain cells.
Their idea stems from the notion of the brain as a biological computer, “with 100 billion neurons and their axonal firings and synaptic connections acting as information networks”.
Dr. Hameroff, Professor Emeritus at the Departments of Anesthesiology and Psychology and Director of the Centre of Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona, and Sir Roger have been working on the theory since 1996.
They argue that our experience of consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects inside these microtubules — a process they call orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR).
In a near-death experience the microtubules lose their quantum state, but the information within them is not destroyed. Or in layman’s terms, the soul does not die but returns to the universe.
Dr. Hameroff explained the theory at length in the Morgan Freeman-narrated documentary Through the Wormhole, which aired in the US by the Science Channel.
“‘Let’s say the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing, the microtubules lose their quantum state,” Dr. Hameroff said.
“The quantum information within the microtubules is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large.
‘If the patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can go back into the microtubules and the patient says, “I had a near death experience”.’
In the event of the patient’s death, it was “possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body indefinitely — as a soul”.
Dr. Hameroff believes new findings about the role quantum physics plays in biological processes, such as the navigation of birds, adds weight to the theory.
Scientists Unveil Quantum Theory of Soul’s Existence (More)
A near-death experience occurs when quantum substances which form the soul leave the nervous system and enter the universe at large, according to a ground-breaking theory proposed by two eminent scientists.
According to this idea, consciousness is a programme for a quantum computer in the brain which can persist in the universe even after death, explaining the perceptions of those who have near-death experiences.
Dr. Stuart Hameroff, Professor Emeritus at the Departments of Anesthesiology and Psychology and the Director of the Centre of Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona, has advanced the quasi-religious theory, the Daily Mail reported.
It is based on a quantum theory of consciousness he and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose have developed which holds that the essence of our soul is contained inside structures called microtubules within brain cells.
They have argued that our experience of consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects in these microtubules, a theory which they dubbed orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR).
Thus it is held that our souls are more than the interaction of neurons in the brain. They are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe and may have existed since the beginning of time.
The concept is similar to the Buddhist and Hindu belief that consciousness is an integral part of the universe — and indeed that it is really all there may be, a position similar to Western philosophical idealism, the paper said.
With these beliefs, Hameroff holds that in a near-death experience the microtubules lose their quantum state, but the information within them is not destroyed. Instead it merely leaves the body and returns to the cosmos.
“Let’s say the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing, the microtubules lose their quantum state. The quantum information within the microtubules is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large,” Hameroff told the Science Channel’s Through the Wormhole documentary.
“If the patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can go back into the microtubules and the patient says ‘I had a near death experience’,” Hameroff said.
“If they’re not revived, and the patient dies, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul,” Hameroff added.
Sant Mat: The Path to Spiritual Consciousness, By Anand Rao
“Consciousness is the quality or state of being aware of an external object or something within one’s self. It is a person’s subjective experience of the world and the mind. Earlier scientists worked with external experience in physical space and this consciousness developed concepts of external objects and processes. Mind is a parameter of the inner worlds and Consciousness of inner worlds leads to Eternal Happiness. This paper, starting with simple explanations of Religion and Sant Mat, attempts to show that the consciousness of the matters of the inner world/worlds depend upon the spiritual advancement and with proper meditational practices one may achieve Ultimate Spiritual Consciousness and enjoy everlasting Supreme Bliss, Supreme Energy, Supreme Intelligence, and Supreme Refulgence of the Supreme Being. Sant Mat teaches simple and easy Meditational Practices within the easy reach of all human beings, to achieve Ultimate Spiritual Consciousness.” — Spircon 2013 Book of Abstracts:
Hymn to the Soul (A Manichaean Gnostic Liturgical Hymn in Parthian.)
… Worthy are you of salvation.
To you, oh Soul of Light, will I give much counsel,
so that you may attain redemption.
Come, oh souls, to this ship of Light!
My most beloved soul, who is happy and noble,
where have you gone? Return!
Awake, dear soul, from the sleep of drunkenness
into which you have fallen!
Look upon the foes, see how they prepare death all around you!
Reach your home, the heavenly realm created by the Word,
Where you were in the beginning.
The Traveler of the Subtle Inner Path
Many Sants like Sant Tulsi Das, Goswami Lakshminath Paramhans, Sant Kabir, Sahib Surdas Ji, Sant Tukaram Ji, and Shri Maharshi Mehi unanimously pronounce that all human beings — irrespective of gender, age, occupation, and race — have an equal right to follow the inner path to the Divine. This view is verifiable by the fact that many Sants and sages, including Sant Kabir, Sant Ravidas, Sant Garibdas were born in ‘lower castes’ and in the lower strata of their society. Many ancient sages like Vyasa and Narada also have unusual births. Sant Tulsidas emphasizes that physical conditions, including birth in lower caste, poverty, and a lack of bodily beauty do not inhibit the progress of the soul. Sants declare that we are all children of one Supreme Being, God. This Divine Being is all compassionate and generous and does not have preference for any persons on the basis of their birth, class, or gender. However, there are certain disciplines all seekers must follow in order to tread this inner path to realize the Divine. According to Maharshi Mehi, “There are a number of necessary observances required to tread the spiritual path.”
Observances: Complete faith in one Divine Being, determination to realize the Divine within, service to the guru, satsang (association of the Sants and the study of scriptures), and steadfast meditation. Prohibitions: Use of intoxicants, practice of adultery, lying, violence (causing suffering to other beings, eating the flesh of animals), and stealing…
Thus, scriptures and Sant literature offer guidelines with regard to disciplines and prohibitions. According to these writings, an untouchable (chandala) who is devoted to the service of the Supreme Being is superior to a Brahmin (a person from the priestly class). Such a chandala with his/her devotion and dedication to the Supreme Being purifies the entire clan.
According to the Dharmashastras (Law Books), “all are born shudras (the lowest caste).” (One rises upward through the inward spiritual journey.) The caste system is based according to one’s qualities, actions, and samskaras (imprints left on the soul due to previous or past life experiences). The reality is, social status, birth, or social class (caste) does not determine the quality of a person; but, rather, one’s comportment determines one’s true status (i.e. caste). Death is a great equalizer. At the time of death, when the soul leaves the body it becomes isolated from all that was connected to the body, including relatives, sons and daughters, caste and status, wealth and wisdom, honor and power. Then, why discriminate against other human beings on the basis of these transitory, material things?
The inner path is accessible to all human beings, but certain disciplines, as cataloged above, are to be followed as also prescribed by the Sants for entering this path. An observance of these disciplines is absolutely essential for the seekers of Divine Reality.
O seeker, if you want to become a pilgrim on the spiritual path then do not transgress the disciplines and rules prescribed by the Sants and scriptures! Without following these necessary provisions and disciplines you will not be able to travel upon this inward journey, and will not attain success in achieving the highest goal.
— Swami Vyasanand Ji Maharaj, from the chapter titled, The Traveler of the Subtle Inner Path, in the new book, The Inward Journey of the Soul (Chal Hansa Nij Desh)
Krishna — Gita: The Power Between the Eye-brows — Third Eye — The Seat of the Soul:
9 He who remembers the Poet, the Creator, who rules all
10 things from all time, smaller than the smallest atom, but upholding this vast universe, who shines like the sun beyond darkness, far far beyond human thought; and at the time of his departure is in union of love and the power of Yoga and, with a mind that wanders not, keeps the power of his life between his eye-brows, he goes to that Spirit Supreme, the Supreme Spirit of light.
11 Hear now of that Path which the seers of the Veda call the Eternal, and which is reached by those who, in peace from earthly passions, live a life of holiness and strive for perfection.
12 If when a man leaves his earthly body he is in the silence of Yoga and, closing the doors of the soul, he keeps the mind in his heart, and places in the head the breath of life,
Sound — The Word
13 And remembering me he utters OM, the eternal WORD of Brahman, he goes to the Path Supreme.
The Seat of the Soul, Third Eye Center: "The soul is pure and therefore by nature still. Due to stillness, the soul is eternal. Therefore, Lord Krishna advises that the mind should be connected to the soul. Self-realization is the objective and the goal of all human life. But where can we obtain this goal? The answer is within one’s heart. By heart is not meant the physical heart, but rather the heart of the inner Self. This is called by the Sants the yoga-heart (innermost Self). It is in this space in which the mind is linked to the soul. The Sants have described this place with many names such as: ‘the sky portal’, the ‘tenth gate’, the ‘point’, ‘window’, ‘the lotus flower’, ‘Sushumna’, ‘Ajna Chakra’, ‘third eye’, ‘center of the eyebrows’, ‘bindu’, etc…" (Swami Vyasanand, The Inward Journey of the Soul (Chal Hamsa Nij Desh: O, Swan-Soul Return to Your Abode)

Concentrating the Mind, Retracing the Consciousness from the Body, and Stepping up the Ladder Inside — That is How One Reaches the Door of Liberation.
“Generally it happens that after a true Mahatma leaves this world, the disciples forget his real teachings and get involved in rituals. Like this the greedy world forgot the real teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and turned the faith into shops to earn money.”
“The power of Naam [the Sound Current, Shabad] is within everyone, but its secret is known to very few. It is beyond the expansion of words. All persons following the mind are stuck in the world and cannot vacate the nine doors [of the senses] to know Its Secret.”
“Stuck in worldly affairs and unaware of God, we continue sleeping. We do not clean our temple (mind). Our real Friend is the Supreme Soul, so understanding His Status and Power, we should welcome Him. He comes to us and extends a friendly hand, but stuck in attachments, we do not even look up.”
“The bani [hymn] referring to Paori, which has already been explained (above), means a ladder (meditation) which takes us from one level to the next higher level; and this is to be practiced in our day to day life. Using the example of a ladder, Tulsi Sahib, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Dadu Sahib, Kabir Sahib, and other Mahatmas have referred to the ‘Inner Ladder’. It passes through Sahans-dal Kanwal [astral, thousand petaled lotus], Trikuti [second spiritual region], and Daswan Dwar [third spiritual region, tenth gate], taking us to Bhanwargupha [fourth spiritual region]. We are to go still further to Sach Khand [fifth plane, true, eternal, timeless, spiritual realm]. The ladder has three more rungs, which take us to the Invisible [Alakh, the 6th], Inaccessible [Agam, 7th], and Nameless Region [Anami-Radhasoami, The Eighth]. Reaching there, everything ends; the drop merging in the Ocean takes the shape of the Ocean. The soul gets engrossed in the Shabad, and reaches the rooftop of the Nameless Region. Our journey comes to an end.
“Reaching that region, birth and death, pain and pleasure, etc., are no more. Only a peaceful and blissful environment exists there. The entire Bani is in the shape of Paori’s (ladders). Unfortunately, a person keeps on reading, but never thinks what the bani is trying to convey. Some rare person ponders over it and reaches his original Home — the Nameless Region.”
“Palak Ram then says to Tulsi Sahib: ‘Through your explanations, I can now follow the hidden secrets of Sant Mat taught by Guru Nanak Dev Ji. I was under the false impression that reading the Paori of Gurbani [hymns, scriptures] was the way to liberation, but you have made it clear to me that by getting Naam from the Master, concentrating the mind, retracing the consciousness from the body, and stepping up the ladder inside; that is how one reaches the door of liberation.’”
— From the Conversations between Param Sant Tulsi Sahib and Palak Ram, the Nanak Panthi, in the Ghat Ramayan of Sant Tulsi Sahib, with commentary by Baba Kehar Singh: http://www.Scribd.com/doc/130801528/Ghat-Ramayan-Tulsi-Sahib-Commentary
The Way Out Is Within: "The practitioner can easily realize the most subtle God, the Divine Reality. That Divine Reality is even beyond the reach of gods such as Brahma. That Divine Reality is beyond the scope of human sight, hearing, taste and all human senses. The Divine Reality is even beyond the grasp of the mind and intellect. The Divine Reality can only be attained by a practitioner through diligent and steadfast meditation." (Swami Vyasanand Ji Maharaj)
"The attainment of the Region of Spirit is the thing that is required, for it can lead to the Abode of Perpetual Joy and Supreme Happiness, even while living in this physical body. It is only by riding the Current of the Holy Naam (the Eternal Music within man), that this state is reached, with the help of a true Master. The Holy Naam — the Word — comes down from the highest spiritual planes, the Region of Truth, into the material planes.
“It is the saving lifeline that can carry souls into the plane beyond the reach of dissolution. All other means fall short of the goal.
“The Kingdom of God is within you; you may seek it there. It is within your finite body that communion with the Word can be held. This ultimately brings you to the Region of Infinite Truth — Sach Khand.”
— The Soul’s Journey, based on the Teachings of Kirpal Singh — This book contains several descriptions of the Inner Realms — including a conversation between Robert Redeen and Kirpal Singh recorded September 2nd, 1970 in Dehradun: http://www.Scribd.com/doc/117731683/The-Soul-s-Journey-based-on-the-Teachings-of-Kirpal-Singh
I LAUGH when I hear that the fish in the water is thirsty:
You do not see that the Real is in your home, and you wander from forest to forest listlessly!
Here is the truth! Go where you will, to Benares or to Mathura; if you do not find your soul, the world is unreal to you.
Sant Mat Spirituality and Meditation @ Tumblr: Bhakti (Love) of the Inner Light and Sound of God – This Living School of Spirituality (Mysticism and Gnosticism) from INDIA called Sant Mat is also known as the Way of the Saints, Radhasoami (Ra-dha-Swam-i), and, the Path of the Masters.
The meditation practice is Surat Shabd Yoga, meaning: Union (Yoga) of the Attention of the Soul (Surat) with the Inner Light and Sound of God (Shabd). This practice is also very "out-of-body" as in soul travel. – James

Seven Things I Believe (and Experience)
*1) God is Real.
*2) God is Love, the Ocean of Love and Compassion.
*3) All of the world scriptures teach about the same manifestation of God as inner mystical Light and Sound.
*4) Our true identity is soul, the Self. Soul is part of God and therefore is, like God, pure love.
*5) During this human existence we have an opportunity to experience God.
*6) As we experience communing with God’s love during meditation – Surat Shabd Yoga, we can rise above body-consciousness and explore Inner Space, the “Kingdom of the Heavens” that are within us. “We travel back from the realm of Darkness to the realm of Light, from the Light to divine Sound, and from the realm of Sound to the Soundless State.” (Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj) The drop merges back into the Ocean of Love.
*7) As we get initiated into the Mysteries of the Spirit by a Living Teacher (Sant Satguru), the purpose of our life is fulfilled. Reuniting with God is our reason to be here: “It was for the sake of the God-conscious beings that our True Lord created this earth, and began this play of death and birth.” (Adi Granth) Kabir said, “For millions of years you have slept. This morning, will you not wake?”
"All beautiful forms and tones of this world are mere reflections of some aspect of that ultimate Love-Music of the Great Creative Word. Within the vast complex of creation, each individual spirit is himself/herself a spark of that Eternal Song of Love."
"There are those who have wandered among the darting comets and the shimmering orbs of sounding fire. The soul-explorer is not alone, for there are those who have traveled the highways of the inner cosmos; far more than one may at first realize."
"...The planes of heaven are about us everywhere. One has only to know this simple truth consciously, and then we will be free." (George Arnsby Jones)
