'Sitting in the body' - Now what does that mean exactly?surya2037 wrote:ShivBaba...Supreme Soul plus body...explained on: VCD--Discussion-6 - Portugal, Canada, London, Malasia
Supreme Soul has no awareness of the body. So how can a being who is ignorant of eyes, ears etc operate through a body? What is the medium for communication?
I think the corporeal body the Supreme Soul 'sits' in refers to the intellect. In this case an intellect that has become degraded/influenced by corporeal beings, and under the impression of duality. 'The incorporeal in the corporeal'. The force of undiluted spiritual power creates an upliftment within the corporeal awareness of the intellect of the Father of Humanity/Prajapita. So the corporeal 'physical' body is initially required as a means of focusing the intellect of new students to a particular location. ie Kampil. An example is a temple which is a location, within the location is a 'voice' that disseminates infomation. It is not the temple that is worshipped but the ideas/principles that have to be understood and assimilated. A physical body/matter cannot be understood, only the actions of the mind/intellect that propel it.
So we understand/catch the unlimited dynamic subtle actions/meanings of the Supreme Soul operating through the only Intellect on the planet, capable of apprehending the meaning of pure spiritual intelligence, and surrendering to that instruction. We observe and listen to the 'Incorporeal in the corporeal' and make note of the drama that unfolds (study) it is as if an original blue print, (of creation) is made so we can adapt ourselves also, as required, to the tranformative process.
I understand that knowledge refers to the transformation of the intellect. So many times the intellect is refered to as 'stomach of the intellect' 'hand of the intellect', 'third eye of the intellect' and so on. It is as though the intellect represents an entire map of conciousness. All of history can be assigned to the rise and fall of intellect. Intellect=subtle blue print of conciousness/creation.
So when I hear the phrase 'Incorporeal in the corporeal' It is not simply the physical presence that is appreciated I 'see' the entire drama unfolding I 'see' the entire cosmos from inert seeds in my hand, to galaxies, drifting and weaving through the vast interstellar reaches of outer space. 'Incorporeal in the corporeal'cannot be explained. It is something to be understood.
Just thinking out aloud, don't mind me :idea:
