43. The Soul Journey As Divinely Intended
Deep down in our hearts, we all know that the purpose of life is for greater happiness.
Here we will explore why that purpose is, not just in the timeframe of this lifetime, but to see the purpose in terms of the greater lifetime of Creation.
Here you will be offered a perspective to understand about the Soul Journey as divinely intended by the Creator - the Creator being the source from which ALL came from. And of course, use what is taught here not as the Truth but rather than a guide to discover your own Truth.

Hi I am Jonny John
Today I want to talk about the journey of the Soul.
So that you can have a better understanding of why we are here, experiencing this physical reality called life.
To understand about the journey of the soul, we need to first understand our relationship to the Source.....the essence from which all came from...some people may call it the Creator or infinity,.
Why were we created experience this physical reality?
Why were we created to go towards happiness?
Again I am only guiding you through my own experience, so please do not just believe in what i say, but use it as clues to find your own truth...
So let's begin
To understand about the journey of the soul, we need to first understand our relationship to the source.....the essence from which all came from...some people may call it the Creator or infinity.
Now how do we find clues to this relationship?
Pickup the telephone and ask the Creator?
Only if it was that simple, then all mysteries would be solved.
The only possible way is to approach this from logical and intuitive stance
And what these faculties of mind tell us is that if everything has a beginning.
That if we turn back time, to the very beginnings of time, even to the time before time existed, there would be the One source where we all came from...the One Creator...
Now if All came from One.
Then what is not One?
In thinking about this question, we can look around and ask ourselves the question what is not the Creator?
To the analytical mind, it can be ridiculous to think that everything around is came from the Creator. because how can that rock be the creator, how can that person be the Creator. How can I be the Creator?
How can we be all One? when everything looks so separate and disconnected.
What if you fell asleep and had a dream.
And in that dream, you are in the world that you are in right now.
And now you asked yourself the question,
"What is not me?"
What would your answer be?
If you are the Creator of your Creation.
Then what Creation is not the Creator?
Perhaps, we are in the Mind of the Creator?
Again, these are just clues for you to consider the possibilities.
For we can never know the truth, until we wake up.
So let us come back to the current reality and see what others clues we can find.
To find the clues that All is the creator
That there is only One Self
And where can we find such clues?
We would be able to find the clues within our minds,
So let us look at the nature of our mind for such a clue.
The nature of the mind can be discovered by turning our senses inwards and observing how it behaves, how it works, and why it works in such a way.
That's why the practice of meditation is so powerful, in that it allows one to discover the nature of oneself.
That is why I encourage everyone who are on the journey of Self-Discovery to take up the practice of meditation.
And the more one observes oneself within, one will become ever more Knowing of the truth that one is the Mind.
Close your eyes, and you will realize that you are the Mind.
Even when we open our eyes and experience the world outside,
We are just experiencing the Mind.
So everything we do in the world, we are simply experiencing the mind
Let's dwell on this thought for a second.
If we really think about it
Everything we do, we are experiencing ourselves
Everyone we talk to, we are experiencing ourselves
Let's dwell on this thought for a second.
Everything that we see, touch, and hear in the world outside...we are actually experiencing ourselves? These are just some thoughts to ponder.
Is it possible that we are everything that is around us?
This thought can sound ridiculous as soon as we open our eyes.
Because everything appears so separate, unique and disconnected.
So without the practice of turning our senses inwards, of meditation, one will find it difficult to accept even the slightest possibility that there is only One Self.
But your mind actually already knows that there is only One Self.
In my experiences of studying the mind, I have found that the deeper mind actually believes that there is only One Self.
And when we reject that truth, we will experience confusion, and unhappiness.
For instance, when we reject a person, an experience, an object, an idea...we will experience suffering.
Because to reject anything in life , to the deeper mind, is like pointing at parts of you in the mirror and declaring that it is not a part of you.
Maybe that is why Self-Rejection is the cause for all Suffering states of the mind,
Because we are distorting the truth that all is One.
And the experience of that distortion is the state Suffering from which all negative states of the mind is born, for instance, fears, judgement, unhappiness.
In realizing then, we realize that the key to happiness in life.
Is to develop Self-Acceptance.
To accept all there is, ourselves, others and the world.
And to develop Self-Acceptance, is to develop Self-Knowing that all is one.
The reality is, when we align ourselves with this state of mind, happiness and wisdom blossoms.
So is there only One Self?
The analytical mind would say no.
But the deeper mind, would resonate with that Truth.
Now one can say that Self-Acceptance and Self-Knowing are the same thing.
Because as we become ever Knowing of the truth that All is one, then Self-Acceptance will naturally be developed..allowing us to accept that person who has once angered us, to accept that situation that has once made us fearful, to finally see our reflection in all the Creations of this world.
Perhaps that is the purpose of the soul journey,
Because in desiring for happiness, we will ultimately have to develop the self-knowing that we are the - that there is only One Self - The Creator.
So in summary, that that is the soul journey,
The journey of Self-Knowing, Self-Realization, Self-Acceptance.
That is why it's so important to Know Thy Self
Now The more serious seeker would ask,
"What is the way to complete this self-knowing, self-acceptance?"
"And why is the path so confusing? Why aren't we just born with the memories of who we are?"
Understanding what spiritual lessons are will help us to answer these questions
So we will talk about what spiritual lessons are later

Path Of Creator
The Soul Journey In Relation To The Path Of Creator
On the journey of Self-Transformation, the most efficient progress is made when one places their focus on the practice rather than the story.
That is why the many articles here do not contain much talk about what cannot be proven but rather what can be experienced at this very moment. And the truth at this very moment is that if there is unhappiness within, it means there is something that needs to be addressed.
To ignore this, is no different than ignoring the call from the heart.
So the focus of the adept will always be placed on the greater work which is waiting to be done ahead.
In saying this however, there is great benefit to the sharing of different views of how the world works. For the talks can instil inspiration and motivation in one to do the practice which is challenging and confusing. That is why there is no harm in sharing in stories, but rather there is harm to one's spiritual growth when the only action one does is to dwell in them.
The journey to discover the Truth is one's own journey. That is the journey of Self-Knowing. And as one develops Self-Knowing, one's truth will begin to shift, begin to become more and more refined. For there will always be a higher truth, a truth that is more unchangeable than the one before
The only way to develop Truth of who we are is to explore ourselves, to explore our minds, to develop Self-Knowing. So that is why the practice of meditation is important. So it is highly encouraged for one to take up the practice, and many types of meditation can be found on the course section of this website. The goal is to learn how to practice meditation in silence, so begin with guided meditation and work your way towards developing Self-Knowing in silence.
