Your True Identity is Soul. Sat Lok is Your Home -- The Soul is a Particle or Wave of the Supreme Being

Your True Identity is Soul. Sat Lok is Your Home -- The Soul is a Particle or Wave of the Supreme Being

"Sat Lok [the True, Eternal, Timeless, Purely Spiritual Realm] is your true dwelling place where there is eternal bliss." (Brahm Nirupan of Kabir)

“The soul is a particle or wave (ansa) of the Supreme Being just as the ray (ansa) of the Sun is an emanation of the Sun.” (Huzur Maharaj, Prem Patra Radhasoami)

More On Ansas/Souls: Particles, Waves, Rays, Emanations of the One Supreme Being Radhasoami

The soul, which has come to this region as a ray on its own current from the Feet of the True Supreme Being, functions in every living thing. In reality, it alone is true and whatever other names and forms are seen here appear to be true only with its help but get destroyed when the soul or spirit leaves the body.

The spirit and the Supreme Being Radhasoami are All-blissful and All-knowing. In other words, the Supreme Being Radhasoami is Omnipotent, All-blissful and All-knowing, and is present in every individual. The soul (jiva i.e. the spirit), is his particle or wave (ansa), for the powers that exist in the Supreme Being are present in the soul as well.

The entire creation came into being according to the mauj (will) of the Supreme Lord, and every spirit-entity creates a separate physical body and develops it on the same principle. The creation of Pind (i.e. physical body in the physical plane) and of Brahmanda (i.e. the macrocosm, cosmos, regions of universal mind and matter) is similar and takes place in the same manner and on the same principle. The only difference is that the creation in the human body is small and the creation in Brahmanda is large, but the grades and the functions of the creation outside are exactly similar to those of the human body.

[Note: “Mauj”: Any, even the least commotion on the spiritual plane, which results in activity on the spiritual plane or even on the mental and physical planes is called ‘mauj’. Literally, the word means 'wave’ of the sea. As Saints also act from the spiritual plane, the term 'mauj’ is also used when we speak about their will or pleasure.]

The entire creation consists of currents. All the bodies that exist consist of currents. Just as cloth is woven out of threads and the branches and twigs of a tree are collections of threads, similarly the human body is also made up of currents or threads. Each one of the threads or nerves is a tube through which the current of the spirit flows. This is the general principle underlying the structure of all the physical bodies in the creation. When anybody speaks, his voice is heard by means of the current of sound. In the same manner, it is through the current of the spirit that the world becomes visible.

When there was no creation, the first thing that happened was that a current issued forth from the Feet of the Supreme Being Merciful Radhasoami. This current is the current of Shabd and of Life and Light. The entire creation of all the regions, higher or lower, has been brought into existence by this current.

The Supreme Being Merciful Radhasoami is enthroned within every one, and from there the current of the spirit, i.e. Life came down creating the Dayal Desh [Region of the Merciful], Brahmanda [regions of universal mind and matter] and Pind [physical plane, physical body], forming its centre [Seat of the Soul, Tishra til, Third Eye Center] between the two eyes within the human body, gives energy and life to the mind and senses and to every part of the body. As the current of the Spirit is itself the current of joy, pleasure, knowledge etc…, it is by means of this current that joy and pleasure is experienced by individuals through their sense-organs.

Now if any person wishes that they should attain the highest bliss and eternal happiness after reaching the Fountainhead of this current which is the Reservoir of perfect bliss, perfect joy, perfect knowledge, they should contact this current of the spirit and with its help return to its Reservoir i.e. the Supreme Being Radhasoami.
