What is a soul?
A packet of concious energy living in a sense of seperatism from the rest and an individual ego. The soul takes innumerable births in His masterpiece and its journey finally ends with an end of the ego. It moves from ignorance to knowledge. As it evolves it possesses minds of greater and greater capacity and then in its final incarnation it exceeds the material and realises its true identity which provides it infinite thrill.
All life seen everywhere are souls. Dogs, cats and various other creatures and man are all souls. They show different tendencies based on their evolutionary pattern but are all moving towards becoming One.
It is here that His brilliance can be known. His genius in lowering the infinity of consciousness to packets of individual energy moving in localised matter, by placing upon them a mind is a game of the
highest order, a saga of glory and brilliance, of astounding intelligence, of great skill.
Everything changes, such being the nature of his masterpiece but He (Master) stands still.
Time moves souls. The Master moves Time.
Every single day on Earth is a tribute to theglory of the Master, to his brilliant sense of creation, to His amazing idea of lowering a part of the One by placing upon it a temporary, partial intelligence called mind
His is a timeless masterpiece.

How to use the mind?
The soul must keep a part of the mind always absorbed in contemplation of theMaster, the intensity varying based on circumstances. This will provide immediate aid to the other conscious part which plays in matter,
thus making the material work itself better.
The first cut ideas of the mind must always be seen but not acted upon. The ideas must be rated even if it takes time. Only what the soul finally feels best for the situation must be applied. This applies to almost everything.
One must be aware of the mind and use it, not allow the mind to use us. The mind must be seen from a distance not be involved in.
Mind , abrilliant artificial created intelligence of His, can be used to exceed itself. Mind binds the soul into various emotions (itself the unleashing of the potential of infinite consciousness). Emotions must no tbe involved into, but distanced from. The positive emotions must be supported and the negative discarded (He supports positive emotions)

The original state of theconsciousness is non reactive. A plenthora of emotions get expressed bycreation. Happiness, Sorrow, Anxiety,Tension.... If the focus is on the emotion itself rather that how it came or its repercussions the emotion vanishes. His brilliance and splendour is evident in creation of somany emotions basically as signals of the brain. The original unchanging soul enters his masterpiece, His timeless classic and the various emotions are experienced. Emotions drive the soul into activity. Some emotions make man work, and man works for fullfillment of some emotions.

One cannot but marvel at this amazing construction of 100 billion neurons called Brain. A soul sees feels loves only through the brain. All emotions are experienced by the soul through the brain. The One that never changes suddenly appears changing, reacting to impulses. The brain is self sufficient in its functioning. At this level even love from the master must be expressed through the brain. There is no other way. God loves man through Himself. Man loves God through brain, through emotional stimuli only does a man respect, love and so on. Gods love is permenant. Man's is mind dependent. The brain must be used in such a way as to lead to the Lord.
The Master has played a superb game, a masterpiece of apparent continuity. Everything is discontinuos but appears contineous. There is death to end the continuity yet creatures live with a senselesness of the discontinuous, assuming the life to be eternally continuos though aware of the discontinuity The important question is how much does the soul express through itself and how much is it bound by the mind. The soul is playing with an object called mind. Can this object be used to attain God?...the answer seems yes. Every circumstance must be used for worshipping Him.

The Lord is
All pervading/OmniPresent - > There is no place where He is not
OmniPotent - > He has infinite potential
Infinity of consciousness - > He is in the maximum expanded state(Unlike souls who are at some level of expansion based on their evolution)
All knowledge - > There is no barrier of mind in Him.
Changeless - > He moves but does not move
Timeless - > Being changeless , He is also timeless
Freedom - > He is absolutely free, not bound by anything
True Lover - > He loves through Himself. He loves the soul for what it is not what it becomes

The Divine Will
The divine will achieves what it wants to achieve. It works on certainty not probability. It is clear in what it seeks and acheives the same exactly as it seeks it. Even if it were to lose, it was of its own will to lose that it would lose. It is Victory.

The soul uses the brain like the we use the hand. Many of the hand motions are spontaneous and many aredeliberate. If complete control is exercised we can say we move the hand, else the hand moves us. The soul is merely using the Brain, for various emotional responses and by this itself it gets bound. For freedom the brain must be used only where neccessary and with as lesseemotions are possible.
What is tension, what is stress, what is sorrow. Are these realities of the soul in its base form? The answer is No. But the soul sees a brain and this
brain has emotional centres. Nothing is happening in the soul. Everything is happening outside it. Even the brain is outside it. The soul thus takes countless births, to release previous vasanas. For releasing the vasanas or tendencies it needs a brain. It reincarnates, gets a brain, releases its previous tendencies (By which it gets joy/sorrow), accumulates new tendencies and then looks for a new field to release it (If a man has artistic tendencies, he may be born an artist in the next birth where using the brain he can get the emotional satisfaction)
The soul must depend on the Omnipresent and surrender to it to the extent possible. With this the lord enters the field , and the progress towards freedom is much faster. The Lord can play with the brain at will, it being His creation and if made to enter, He finds easy ways for the soul to get freedom. As a natural end , freedom shall be the end for all, but
by bringing the Divine into play it appears can be made faster (It may be that the Divine comes only when the particular stage for evolution
has arrived). The Divine aids the soul at various points in creation, but
it would require the soul itself to be aware of the divine to progress fast.

The entire creation consists of opposite, in fact is sustained by it.

A thing must be done only because it is to be done. There should not be any emotional attachment to anything. The lord must be always remembered, whatever be the situation or place.

The best thing for any consciousness would be to live Here and Now. The mind must not be allowed to deviate much into the future or past, and if potraying a negative picture must be replaced with a positive one.
All life rests in equality. Nature in a apparently brilliant contradiction , rewards the soul having good deeds with an inequality. The soul achieves more in material that its contemporaries. It is superior to souls of its age.
Equality must be maintained.
Every day on Earth is another feather in His cap, another day of His Glory, anathor day of His brilliance. A unique opportunity to love Him through the mind.
The soul in knowledge all by itself. In its true state it does not require a brain for knowledge. In meditation we must become pure awareness, we must not meditate through the mind but out of it. Just know we are, not by thinking but by being. Not by doing but by existing. Awareness and only awareness that we are life.

Even if there is pain, it is there for 50 years
Even if there is happiness, it is there for 50 years
Let us then exceed both, and instead of deriving joy of the material, let us derive joy of the spiritual...<

Pleasure is the chief motive driving humanity. Pleasure must be renounced. Renounce pleasure of wordly delights and other joy like emotions. Tolerate difficult emotions like sorrow, tension. Accept one emotion, the emotion of joy of remembering the Divine.
Say cut stop thoughts completely
Say release again start flow of thoughts
So in any emotional situation , close eyes say cut...stop thoughts
then say release start thoughts again and act in material world

Surrendered - Always remembers/contemplates/thinks of God.
Renouncee - Does not run after material delights. Immersal in Lord is his only delight.
A surrendered person has eternal grace of God
A Renouncee has time for thinking of God..since he is not participating in temporal sensual pleasures. A renouncee can make sacrifices to be immersed deeper in the lord.
