Body Consciousness


Consciousness is simply the belief I hold in my awareness about who I am. This becomes the basis of how I think, talk and act.

When I believe I am a body then I will interact with the world in body consciousness. Expectations and desires will be based on the body: what I wear, how I look, my profession, how much I earn, what I own etc.

As a bodily being one thing is certain – I take birth and I will die.
Between these two parameters I will do what I can to fulfil all my desires.
However subtly, underlying all of this is the fear of death, of time running out. It is fear that becomes the basis of anger, greed, attachment and more.

In soul consciousness things are very different because as a soul I am never born, nor will I ever die. A soul is an eternal form of energy. The aspect of fear and competition immediately disappear.

Soul consciousness allows me to act and interact with people without expectation of return or loss; without fear. It frees me from the illusion that I have to become something more than I already am.

Switch your awareness from body consciousness and become soul conscious.

Om Shanti

Soul Consciousness

What does it mean to practise soul consciousness?
It is to become aware of one’s own subtle energy: the subtle being which is silent, still and present at all times but which we are not consciously aware of. To be soul conscious is to live in the awareness of that subtle energy.

Even though it is constantly present, it requires that we tap into it and touch that energy. The regular practise of doing this will slowly shift the consciousness from body to soul.

While being in the awareness of that subtle form, explore the eternal questions that are deeply seated in the soul:

Who am I?
Who do I belong to?
Where have I come from?
What is time for me?

There is no need to think too much, but just emerge the thoughts within the mind. The answers will come but not be in words or sound. The answers will also come subtly in terms of feeling and experiences.

The heart, mind and intellect all need to be silent and clean to be able to catch the responses. Even though they are so subtle the experience of soul consciousness is the most powerful and life changing experience of all.

Try it and see.

Om Shanti

Soul Consciousness

Whether I am aware of it or not, by default, I live in the consciousness of being a body. What I do, how I do it and why I do it, is based on the understanding that I am a body.

All human beings in the whole world are trapped in this one mistake.

As a result we continue to stumble around in life as if we are in a dark room. All we need to do is to switch on the light. Then we would be able to see clearly. It is not a big thing. It takes just a second, but the difference it makes is huge.

If we lived in the awareness of being a soul, if we performed each action based on this fundamental reality, then the life we live and the world we live in would be very different

Can you switch on the light?

Om Shanti
