We all are going to agree that God in his first Heaven is called, “Beingness.” Don’t we refer to Him as the Supreme Being and where would He reside? In his Supreme Beingness. That would be the supreme Heaven, Para Braham, beyond paradise, beyond desire. Beingness is the first Heaven, but Beingness alone is insufficient to describe the Heaven. Beingness acting on Beingness is truly the first Heaven or the highest Heaven. When viewed in terms of Sanskrit it would be called Sat, eternal, the unmanifest, because God in the unmanifest state is pure Being and is outside of vibratory creation. It is that Supreme Intelligence that permeates outside all forms of creation. Creation is an expression of His Beingness.

In Paul’s writings, he mentioned a part of the divine Origin. He was in a place called the eighth Heaven or ninth Heaven. Anyone can remember what Heaven he was in? He was taken up in the eighth Heaven, right. So there must be someplace if he can identify it in the frame of Origin, then where would the Eastern mind come in now to compete with that? Let see if the Eastern mind can dream up a competitive state. The Creator, if He’s somewhere in His Heavens and Paul can get way up to the eighth one, there must be more or Paul would have said he didn’t get to all and Jesus said, “In my Father’s house there are many mansions. I go to prepare a place for you. If it were not so I’d tell you.” So from the Western viewpoint, Heaven seems to have more places that the Soul can reach out and go to. Well let’s see if these places can be recognized from Eastern thinking and give us a sense of direction what they really represent.

Now bringing it down in terms of the human being as an individual, the Eastern people went one step further. They went to what is called the integration of Spirit, Mind, and Body by using a word called Yoga. They did not alone want to have a frame of reference with God, they want to have now a link, a bond, a continuous flow, a unity, so they evolved out of the frame, Yoga. Let’s see if the Western world did not inherit Yoga. Master Jesus said, “Take my yoke upon thee, for it is light.” The word Yoga when translated is to yoke, to unite, or to be in union with. Interesting? So we don’t have millions of Yoga, there is only one, the unity, or the union between the Individual frame and the Cosmic frame, between the Soul and the Creator, the Origin. There has never been at any time where Eastern thinking and Western thinking in conflict. They will all reconcile themselves right in their own writings. In the Origin especially they reconcile themselves. They’re saying the same thing.

This is viewed from Christian thinking. Let’s see if Christian thinking has a conflict with Eastern thinking. There is no conflict. In Eastern thinking we see the same thing. The Father they call Sat, which means eternal, ever existing, ever new. The Son they call Chit, ever conscious, ever blissful. And the Holy Spirit they call, Ananda, eternal bliss. The frame of reference now for the Eastern mind is Sat, Chit, Ananda, Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

And we say that this creative principle is involved in us in a threefold way, a Trinity in one, a three in one. So the Father is out there, the Son is out there, the Holy Spirit is out there, where is it in me now? What is the Father in me, what is the Son in me, and what is the Spirit in me? If I am made in the image and this is the frame of reference to which I must return to, then I must be able to line up myself with that frame of reference. I must find the Father in me, the Son in me, and the Holy Spirit in me. So we can refer to the Father, Son, Holy Spirit as the Macrocosm. Is that it, Macro-cosm, c-o-s-m? Macrocosm. In man, he would look at himself as Spirit, Mind, Body and that he will call Microcosm. Spirit is Father, Mind or intelligence is Son the redeeming factor, Body or Holy Spirit the movement, the action, the manifestation.

The dead Soul… Is there such a thing? Yet some scriptures say when the Soul is dead they’ll be used as fuel for Satan’s ovens. What would a devil need to stoke his fire but dead Souls? He couldn’t use a living Soul, right? Interesting. How could he begin to take a living Soul, a vibrant expression of the Divinity, and start to use it? The Soul that is dead is not really in the sense of the word that it ceased to be in existence. The Soul that is dead is when disorder takes over and breaks up the unity of life between its existence and its origin. When we bring the discord, that’s where we go to our second part tonight. See, origin is first, then we see how the discord begins. One more aspect of the origin and that is the framework of the divine creation. There are two frameworks of divine creation existing which we take reference from. One: The Father, Son, Holy Spirit. This is a frame of reference we take our origin from. When I’m returning back to God, I’m going back to my Father and I need the Son as an intercessor. Now the Son is not with me therefore I need the Holy Comforter or Holy Spirit. Therefore from this frame of reference we have established how creation is supposed to be functioning. That is one frame of reference for our make-up.

So we have unity, or united, and finally we have “L” in the word SOUL. As I said the only thing that is important to all of us is that next breath, life. This universe is not a universe if there is no life in it. The whole universe is a living process. It’s all life. God is total life. Creation is life in action. Soul is the embodiment of that total-ness in miniature form in action, life. Man is the Spiritual Order of the United Life in action in a miniature form expressing divinity all the time called SOUL. This is your true origin. You are that spiritual order of united life in action.

Man comes along and plants one row of wheat, one row of corn, one row of cabbage, and so forth. So man is more orderly than God. Interesting that man would look out and see this. Yet how can we say this Creator is orderly? If we see this type of expression and inwardly we crave to change it and line it up. There are two types of order: Order as Soul by personal involvement. Order as God in total involvement. In His totality, the harmonious blend of everything, this homogenous blend of everything, is order. In individuality, in terms of relative use, individual locations, groupings, that is order. So in an individual life we set order by grouping things. In a cosmological way, all things are put together to flow as a homogenous whole. There is no chaos, it’s total order. But what is the order about? “U” in the SOUL, is universal. Order is universal, or united, between the individual and the Divinity, between man and the Creator. There is a unity, there is a bond. We are made in His image and likeness, therefore we are made in an integral unity. There can be no separation in that unity. If there’s a separation, it’s not from the point of God, it’s the point of consciousness in man.

Alright, here we have Spirit, S, for Soul, Spirit, Spiral, Spinning. A force that is spinning, spiraling, holding everything up. It’s not moving in a straight line, it’s spiraling. That means it’s ever expanding. There’s no end to a spiral. From the time it starts, it goes on to infinity, but it starts off at a point of oneness, but God, creating the Soul, created order, not disorder, because in the very statement, “Come let Us make man,” how is He going to make him. He specifies an order, image and likeness, in that order. First in the image and in the likeness. So we have order from the… Therefore order is the first law of existence. If this room is in disorder, sooner or later somebody is going to try to straighten it out. Subconsciously you start fixing the place up, putting some order to it. This is in an individualistic way. Yet if you look out across the mountain to the world, you will say God is a very disorderly man. Why? He put the river next to the trees, the trees next to the rocks, the rocks next to the fowl, the fowl is next to the house, the house is next to the grass, where is the order? He didn’t put all the corn on one side of the stream. He didn’t put all the wheat on one side of the stream.

Soul, it’s a peculiar word. Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So? Ah So. What is the first expression of the baby when he’s born. Ahhhhh Soooooo? He lets out a wail as if “well at last I’m here, but what for?” Soul is a peculiar word and it carries peculiar feelings with it and, at times, we may tear ourcells down, persecute ourcells (ourselves), not realizing that the Soul is not involved in it, that something else is involved in the persecution, the tearing down. When we look at the word Soul we see four letters and if we look at the origin of ourselves, we see some interesting things. “No man sees God,” every scripture states that. They say God is spirit. Something spinning, vibrating, some power vibrating, holding this entire universe up.
