We are all infinite eternal spirit , being presented within five levels of
expression, called sheaths or Koshas which are five levels of awareness
that veil the Atman, or true SELF. Discovering each layer will bring you
closer to ONE-NESS with the universe and the true SELF. The physical
body is just a receptacle for the higher energies of life, to use as a
vehicle in order to experience duality and also to be able to feel the
feelings that arise within a tangible expressed life force. Spirit without
being sheathed by the cloth of lower vibrational energy, cannot interact
with anything physical, that would be an impossibility, in simple terms
the purity of spirit cannot ever become contaminated by gross material
physical substance. When we reach a point in our expression when we
decide to look within us for the answer to the question, what is life?
We will have well experienced in the ups and downs of emotional and
mental traumas, we will instinctively feel a need to look within ourselves.
When we ask ourselves the question who am I? we set in motion a chain
of connecting ideas and insights. This when coupled up with a regular
practice of meditation will lead to a developing inner silence, this inner
silence will be born out of the ceasing of your endless thoughts, the mass
of trivia that has been generated by our finite minds. Then within this inner
silence, you will awaken the voice of intuition, intuition is the divine monitor
that dwells within the higher self of all humanity, it will usually only awaken
when we touch the ‘HEM’ of its Divine Garment, touching the hem translates
as your lower self actually making contact with your higher self, which is your
immortal divine soul. Your consciousness awareness expands into and touches
the higher frequency vibration of that true occupier which is your higher self.
When this occurs within your experience, you will then begin to understand
fully that you are a immortal soul, having a human being relative experience
here on Earth, and you will KNOW THAT, not because somebody told you this
but because YOU personally experienced this most wonderful experience.
Warmest regards Michael.
