The spiritual world – principles
Description of how the spiritual world is functioning
In this chapter I am entering a completely different reality than the one to which we are accustomed. By the term spiritual world, I understand the sphere beyond time and space, which I defined at the beginning of this study as a sphere coexisting parallel to the sphere of space-time, that is, the entire material universe. The spiritual world described by me can also be called the afterlife.
Formulating proof for the existence of the spiritual world is not so easy. First, one should draw logical conclusions from the laws and principles according to which the physical world was created. Then, use the experience of people who gave us testimonies about the spiritual experiences experienced. In the end you have to be like a detective or investigating judge who, out of minor facts, sometimes from insignificant events and few evidences for the existence of something elusive, must put together a picture of the truth about the phenomenon under investigation.
The logical conclusion from these analyzes should be the statement that the spiritual world is a spiritual reality destined for life for all spiritual beings. It should be not only our ultimate goal, but also the most important part of our eternal life, something like our own, peaceful home for forever, for eternity.
While the physical world is known to every human being, the spiritual world is not understandable to everyone. It is as if separated from our reality, because it has its own reality, other than ours. However, these two worlds in the original intention of the Creator were not supposed to be separate spheres, as it is today. Their proper state is full harmony and coexistence, which can be described as the initial reality. The spiritual world, from the earthly point of view, can be in some sense an overlay on the physical world, but an overlay unbelievably larger than the physical world. Therefore, one can rather say that the physical world is a pad for the spiritual world. In this relationship between them, the spiritual world has an absolutely superior role, which I emphasize in this whole study. It should also be noted that originally, the Creator intended free energy and information exchange between these worlds.
Of course, the spiritual world is not visible to human eyes, just as our thoughts and feelings are invisible and everything that has a spiritual nature. Time and space is what fundamentally differentiates the physical world from the spiritual world. In the latter the time does not end in an earthly sense and is not needed to overcome space. While in the physical world every place is a point in space, the concept of place does not exist in the spiritual world. Being in it has a different dimension, a dimension of omnipresence, that is, it is not subject to any physical limitations. For us, adapted to life in the physical world with numerous limitations, it is unimaginable. Therefore, in order to understand the functioning of the spiritual world, we need to change our "physical" understanding of time and space and the perception of this transcendent environment by our senses. It requires a special state of focus in which we silence the physical senses and let our thoughts float freely.
Usually, it is difficult for us to imagine a linear infinity, that is, directing thoughts into an infinite past or future. It is even more difficult to imagine the infinity existing on an unlimited level, and the worst we deal with the spatial limitations represented by the entire universe. The same problem arises with an understanding of the lack of passage of time.
As I noted above, the world beyond time and space has no dimensions, structures or directions, and there is no time in it. This is the preliminary definition of the spiritual world. Meanwhile, we need to locate concrete spiritual entities in this world, such as angels or spiritual people who have already completed their physical lives. The most difficult, if not impossible, is to locate God in this world. The reason is His total ubiquity both in the form of His all-universe, from which the physical universe arose, and in the form of His Spirit, containing all the laws and principles governing the universe. What, however, is worth trying to find, is His Heart, because it creates a certain Center against which one can define his "personal position", something like a feeling of His Fatherhood.
In various places in this study, I propose further ways of getting to know the spiritual world. Below I present one of them.
There are currently over seven billion people on Earth, and the number is constantly growing. If it is true that we all go through physical death to the spiritual world, more than one hundred billion people live in the form of spiritual persons, and this number is also constantly increasing.
How are they living there? What are they doing? How do they recognize each other? How do they communicate with each other? Do they see God, angels, or maybe Satan and demons? Is Jesus Christ, Buddha, Muhammad or Abraham with them? There is no end to such questions. In this chapter I try to understand the functioning of the spiritual world as it should be originally, and only in the next I will deal with the present state.
First, for simplicity, I will illustrate the coexistence of the spiritual world and the physical world in a simple way. I will use a comparison with a football match. Imagine that there are 22 players on the court, and maybe a thousand times more spectators sit on the stands, say 22,000. All these people, both on the pitch and in the stands, participate in the match. Although only 22 of them play football and the rest are watching, in reality everyone is involved in this spectacle. Those in the stands are passionate about the game not less than players on the pitch and similarly identify themselves with the current situation. So it should be in relation to the world prepared by the Creator. We, physically living on Earth, are the players. People in the spiritual world, although "sitting in the stands", can participate actively in the life of this world. The creator also foresaw the mutual communication of both sides. Of course, this is an image of the perfect world.
In the course of earthly life, the physical person and the spiritual person of man constitute a unified human person and it is difficult to see any duality. Meanwhile, although they are one personality, their roles vary a lot. From the very premise that the spiritual person is eternal and the physical one is mortal, the differentiation of their function results. There is no doubt that this eternal spiritual person is more important because he is simply the right man. I do not diminish the importance of a physical person. If it was not so important and indispensable, the Creator would not have taken the trouble to create it with the entire infinite cosmos. A physical person is absolutely necessary to achieve human perfection. The Creator's plan was that the physical body armed with the senses and the instinct of life would be able within a short time, for example within 70 years, to enable the spiritual person to gather all life experiences necessary to achieve full perfection.
Let us assume that man on Earth on the road to perfection should gradually reach it on a scale from 1 to 100%. At every moment of this scale, both our persons communicate with each other "on the same wave", which resembles broadcasting on the same frequency on a scale of 1 MHz to 100 MHz, as it happens between the transmitter and the receiver. For example, halfway through the 50% level of human development, they communicate on the 50 MHz frequency. At this frequency, the spiritual person takes vital forces from the senses of the physical body, developing his wisdom, willpower or emotionality necessary to achieve a state corresponding to this level. This process continues until 100% perfection at 100 MHz frequency.
Summing up the above, I would like to emphasize once again that in a perfect world, that is in a world functioning according to the Will of God, a physical person brings a spiritual person to full perfection and then dies. A mature spiritual person, means the right person, continues to live in the spiritual world. This should be the fundamental truth of life for each of us.
In the spiritual world, everything is spiritually felt, not in a physical way. Besides, there is no direct physical contact there, because the spiritual feelings fully cover the need for contacts between all beings who are there. Every situation is perceived spiritually, that is, by spiritual senses.
From the above it follows that God is not an object to watch, but rather the omnipresence permeates the entire spiritual realm and the universe. A spiritual person recognizes the Original Being with all his personality as a kind of heat that permeates it, which is actually an overwhelming love. He also feels Him as a light of unprecedented intensity that permeates everything and brings awareness to all knowledge. In the end, the spiritual person feels God as absolute peace, which causes the feeling of eternally lasting good. At the same time, he meets other beings in the spiritual world with the help of spiritual equivalents of the earthly senses. In their identification, one can use a certain analogy with the senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch known to us. So you can talk about looking with the eyes of the soul, the touch of the intellect, the taste of eternity, the smell of good or listening to the heart. At the same time, due to the specificity of the sphere existing beyond time and space, all of it can be considered as one non-material sense.
These senses operate fully in the spiritual world only after achieving the goal of creation, that is after achieving personal perfection. However, since no one has yet reached such a level, people entering the spiritual world now feel this all-embracing love, understanding the truth and awareness of good in a more or less limited way.
In order to analyze our incomplete spiritual level available on Earth, I compare it with the spiritual level presented by Jesus Christ. His story of a 40-day fast and temptation in the desert provides such knowledge. The Bible describes it as follows: "Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread”. Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”. Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God”, he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: ‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”. Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”. Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you”, he said, “if you will bow down and worship me”. Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”. Then the devil left Him, and angels came and attended Him" (Mt 4: 1-11).
Jesus was the one who represented the high spiritual level of the Son of God. He threatened the dominant position of Satan because he was in a condition suitable for the archangel. This was the extent that the Archangel Lucifer could have had at the time of the fall in the Garden of Eden. This range was never crossed by people, because their "bad educator" prevented them. Therefore, there must have been a confrontation between the Second Adam and the former Archangel who clearly showed the superiority of the perfect man over the wisest of the angels. Of course, in this confrontation, Satan did not physically take Jesus anywhere, not to the top of the temple, nor to the top of a high mountain. Jesus still remained in the same place in the desert. Satan only presented him with some of his spiritual visions in which Jesus agreed to engage. In other words, they were like virtual illustrations or images of thoughts in appropriate words heard by the spiritual senses of both sides. This is how spiritual beings communicate, that is, angels and spiritual persons. Satan brought Jesus into his vision, which he illustrated with the image of the top of the temple or the top of a high mountain. Such images, similar to the reality we know, most appeal to the imagination of a human now living on Earth. In addition to proving the superiority of the Son of God over the fallen Archangel, the entire event in the desert has the character of a lecture about the spiritual world. It brings first and foremost basic knowledge about how to deal with this reality. The following facts result from this knowledge.
First of all, in the spiritual world, we will not be able to change our spiritual level at will, because the entire growth process should take place in the physical world where ordinary food is needed. However, this is not the most important message that Jesus wanted to convey to his disciples. The key is the information that spiritual development, love and good life are needed for spiritual development on the Earth, and only for a certain, if necessary, physical food.
Secondly, it becomes clear that a men mature to the level provided by the Creator has a higher state of spirituality than angels. The fallen Archangel spiritually carried Jesus to various places because he could do so. The mission of the angels were in fact serving the spiritual persons of sons and daughters of God and to be their guides the universe. They should therefore play a serving role in relation to man, and not affect his thoughts, and thus also conduct.
Thirdly, this knowledge brings confidence in the supreme role of the spiritual world and its ability to dominate the physical world. Jesus did not deny in confrontation with Satan that he has the right to "reign" over the entire subordinate world. We remember that on another occasion Jesus even called him "the god of this world". In this case, Jesus clearly announced what is waiting for the "devil's usurper". Unfortunately, despite proving the supremacy of the Son of God, Satan, as a spirit being, can still rule over the world of people, surpassing them with his knowledge and power and cutting them off from the knowledge of the real spiritual world. Only the change of this abnormal state originally prepared by God will allow people to dominate the angels. This will be done in the process of humanity's salvation. For this purpose, first in the conditions of the physical world, one must first find the right position of people towards angels, and only then will it begin to effect in the spiritual world.
Fourth, after the "duel" between Jesus and Satan, the angels who were serving Him appeared. By their attitude to the victorious Son of God, they emphasized the higher spiritual level of Jesus. Every man should go to such a level, that the angels may serve him.
Once the perfect world has come, every second in the physical world should be used to prepare your future "personal" spiritual world. Every person will be able to desire, dream and shape this eternal future. This will be because its content is to be built for earthly life based on everyday human experience, and then recorded in its internal personality, as recorded in a video recorder. The world around us, especially nature, is why it is so beautiful and diverse that we can draw from it for future eternal life. In the spiritual world, we will certainly be happy if we can accumulate the right amount of happy experiences from the physical world and the right amount of personal dreams. It is worth now to open your memory to acquire everyday happy experiences on Earth, at the same time expelling from the memory of bad experiences. We often dream about happiness lasting as long as possible. This results from our original nature, which is focused on the constant experience of happiness. Earthly experiences should always bring us joy, but we know well that this is not always the case, as we live in a world far from what the Creator has prepared for us.
In a perfect world, the history of our physical life should be recorded in the "internal video recorder" second by second, although in the present reality only a few records are valuable. After the end of earthly life, this "recording" goes with us to the spiritual world. What we will write and what will be available to us in the "good recordings" of other people will become together a sufficient "virtual film" needed to fill the content of our eternal life in the spiritual world. Having the opportunity to experience what was happening in the past, what is happening now and what will happen in the future anywhere in the universe, you can be absolutely sure that we will not be bored there. The world has always been interesting, always rushing with progress, creating a very interesting spectacle to which everyone should have unlimited access. Therefore, I would like to emphasize once again that together with the Creator, our Father, we create one great and eternal family that can experience the rich moments in the amazingly beautiful world associated with our Earth. This also applies to the entire universe.
In the beliefs of North American Indians, there is faith in the land of eternal hunts that is the subject of their dreams. They were preparing their whole lives to be there and they were clearly aware that this was the most important goal in their lives. Also many spiritual visionaries explained to people that every moment in this world is a preparation for eternal life in the spiritual world. More than one of us, at the end of his life, senses that he has wasted them. He then tries to fix his mistakes, to have more experience of good, which will then be transferred to the spiritual world.
In addition, it is worth noting that in the ideal world, originally prepared by the Creator, only one sphere of the spiritual world was predicted. Originally planned by Him human life on Earth is enough to achieve personal perfection. In a perfect world, everyone will be able to accomplish this task. At present, it looks different, but I will write about how it is really in the next chapter.
The Creator, as a good and perfect Father, wants to live eternally with people because they are His children. Therefore, the spiritual person must be eternal. Life in the physical world is for every one of them a kindergarten life, school and studies for receiving the final "diploma", that is, achieving the level of personal perfection.
In the Bible, and in fact in one of the apostolic letters, we find some significant sentence: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no human mind has conceived – the things God has prepared for those who love him..." (1 Cor 2: 9). The intention of Saint Paul was directing our attention to the future life in the spiritual world. These words certainly concern a wonderful, almost unimaginable future after the survival of earthly life. Currently, this vision is almost completely unknown, because it usually escapes our earthly imagination. Even thinking about her is underestimated, although it would cause less fear of death. It is a pity that we do not see such an important element of our lives. Therefore, I will try to conclude this chapter briefly to explain my vision of human existence in a perfect spiritual world.
After death, those who, living in the physical world, have achieved personal perfection will be completely free and fully happy. This freedom will mean the opportunity to learn everything that the Creator has prepared for people. The spiritual world is beyond time and space, hence the spiritual person of man will be able to freely roam the entire infinite universe. One will be able to visit any places in different galaxies, in various star systems, where there are planets similar to Earth, that is, similar physical and biological conditions. Of course, this will also apply to our native Earth, when God's supremacy prevails over it. There can be a huge amount of such planets in the universe today, even though we know nothing about them. Logically, these are places prepared by Heavenly Father, that their children may live and develop forever. The energy from the Creator can enable the "traveling" spiritual people to become more confident in any place in space, just on such planets. This self-affinity, even for a short time, is necessary, because viewing and experiencing the beauty of nature becomes possible only with the help of the physical senses. It can be really fascinating. Therefore, in the spiritual world, we have an unimaginable opportunity to pass through experiences that we do not even dream about. That is why it is worth accepting the words from the letter of Saint Paul as a real promise bringing with us unknown feelings of happiness and joy. This is our future and so, in my opinion, the ideal universe will look like both physical and spiritual.
The more answers are brought by the next chapters:
"The spiritual world at present" -
"The spiritual world - the background of conflicts" -
"Man in the face of death".
