In this offering of this blog… allow me to suggest that the average, normal, and typical dictionary definition for most of the terms used in my blogs will not suffice to define, nor to explain what the various terms mean! I mean… the typical dictionary definition only defines a word using other words… as though doing so will actually “convey that the word being defined actually “stands for’?
Take for example, the the term Soul. What is a Soul? Where does it exist? What does it do? And can we experience the Soul by use of the brain and physical senses?
1.the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.
This provides us words. Such as “spiritual,’ “immaterial,’ and ‘immortal’. What do these words tell you about these words, or the term Soul, for which they serve as sign posts that point to Soul? Even if we memorize these terms, and their meanings, how does that provide us with an “Experiential Knowledge’ of the Soul?
It does not do so, is the answer! So, how does one come to experience one’s own Soul, and what is the “REASON” our brains and physical senses cannot do this for us? The Reason is quite Mystical. That is, the Whole of Man consists of four entirely separate vibrational dimensions, each with its own reality. And only one of these, the Physical Universe, can be experienced by the brain. And the simple reason for this is that the brain is itself physical.
In this sketch, the Soul is part of the “Spiritual Reality,” which is the “Primordial Existence,” or what we refer to as “God,” or what the Bible describes as the “Void,” which is normally describved as empty, dark, or nothing.
Therefore the brain can only perceive that which is physical, tangible, and capable of being perceived by the brain and physical senses. And this refers to one-quarter of the Whole Human Being, or WHB.
Or put another way… three-quarters of the Whole of Man are “Esoteric” dimensions of Man, or parts of the Whole of Man that the brain cannot perceive! Esoteric just means ‘invisible’.
The term Mystic refers to someone who is able to use his or her faculty of Intuition to experience the invisible elements of Life. The term Mysticism is the process by which a Mystic does this. And, the reason the Mystic is able to do this is that the Mystic is “Enlightened”! But what does Enlightened mean? Well, we will discuss that in our next blog.
