Exactly mind and intellect and traits is the soul, according to the advance knowledge. They are contained in a minute point of light. Traits or habits, or past experiences or the role. It is said in the Murli that this is the wonder of nature, such a big part recorded in such a tiny soul.
dear br. john,
Even whilst the soul is in the world drama it can remember and expereience the Soul World. The soul can remember also feelings, not only images. it is siad that all souls reside there. it is said that the soul's nature is peace. so this feeling of peace can be experience here, whilst in the body, and the home is the source of such feeling, the Father. it is said that if you cannot remember the small form, the soul, then remember the big form, the home. The feeling of peace can come to the soul when it goes in the stage of soul-conciousness then this stage is also called to go to heaven. so it is said many times, remember me, the home, heaven, Narayan, and the question is how many things we have to remember.
It is called easy knowledge and Yoga and effort, that hints that all of these should come to mean one and the same thing, so that the intellect can stabilize in one thing, in one place, the lotus posture of the mind, lotus-like stage, complete detachment, nastomoha, smritilabdha, purity, peace. Although all of these have some additional meaning in their essence they are all to say with words what is silence, incorporeal seed like stage that is above speech that cannot be expressed in words - nirvana, above words, high stage Paramdham, highest home, point like form, embodiment of rememberance, heaven in hell. The Confluence Age is the time of experience. Making the impossible possible - the experience of this experience whilst in the body.
It is said in the Murli that i have come to take all you souls back home and that alls souls reach this stage whether through effort or though punishment, it is said that we go together, so maybe when they reach such stage one just leave the body and remain there, whist the other can return in the body to play a part.
