Quote of the Day: If You Know Who You Are...

'If you know who you are, that's it. You have gained everything.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar

The Religion of the Soul

The following is the transcript of His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech (video above).

We are trying to connect everybody to the Lord. Different groups of people: different faiths, different ideologies, different nations and of course, difference temperaments. There is too much knowledge in this world but the knowledge that one needs to purify and to spiritualise, that knowledge is not to be seen anywhere. People have their own understanding about everything: about religions, about God, about spirituality. Whereas, we believe the right knowledge has to come from God and only that knowledge can connect human beings with God. It is very sad that most of us forget the importance of the soul and we assume our reality to be confined to our body. The human race has been divided into many groups, many nations, many tribes, many cultures and this is how we see so many differences among human beings. So many different colours of the skin, so many different languages; however, the nature of everybody is the same. The world has seen 313 different religions. Most people follow a religion without knowing why do they need to follow a religion; they just follow it half-heartedly, without any benefits, without any results, blindfoldedly. As a result of this, you become more heedless of the truth. 

Today it doesn't matter whether you follow a religion or you don't follow a religion, because even those who follow a religion have nothing greater in their character than those who don't follow a religion. New philosophies, new ideologies have been fabricated and they are following shadows. In the Western world, there is a new type of spirituality. You must have heard of New Age people; their philosophies of spirituality are really naïve to myself. [They practise] atheist spirituality in which their aim is to feel good, look good - and that's all. Looking good and feeling good is no destiny. Some people think they are living in this world and that's it, this is heaven for them and hell for them and there is no life after this; this is because their belief system is corrupted.

Spirituality is all about awakening of the souls, enlightening them, strengthening them - and once they are awakened and strengthened, they have been spiritually indoctrinated, they have acquired the spiritual calibre and celestial ability to embark upon spiritual voyage, then they will see how many different realms has God created for them to visit. Not just in our solar system, but beyond our solar system, beyond this galaxy, beyond this core of this realm - in the angelic realm, where angels live and beyond that point, where even angels cannot approach. This universe, this cosmos, is so mammoth; in order to know everything, you have to see them all. Then comes your final destiny: God. Spirituality is the practical knowledge; it's not bookish knowledge. You prepare your souls for divine journey and as you go along the spiritual path, you gather a lot of spiritual strength. You start becoming holy and you start becoming powerful. As soon as you are connected with God, the power of God will show off your character. When God starts manifesting him through you, that is the evidence that now you are unified with God. 

Like [if] a husband and wife have a car, laptop or mobile phone, [then] they can share it and both use it. In a similar way, when you're connected with God and you have befriended God, then God starts to manifest himself through you. You become a sort of representative of God. Those who cannot reach God, they can reach you and they can feel God and his presence around you. When you represent the Divine Presence on earth, when people in your company feel that they are around God, this is the time when you can call that person to be a Spiritual Guide. 

Our reality is not our body, our reality is our soul. Our senses are not awakened; this is why we have not seen our soul. Like your body, if you want to see yourself, there are cameras and mirrors; you can stand in front of a mirror and you can see yourself. But, have you ever pondered, what if you wanted to see your soul? Is there any mirror in which you can see your soul? Have you ever thought about it? 

No, you didn't think about it because nobody told you. You have been running around like a mad dog after religions, you have been busy bowing down before stones, before idols, before mosques - but you achieved nothing out of that practice, because the rituals and practice of rituals didn't touch upon your soul and your heart. 

A majority of people today who follow a religion do not know why do they follow a religion. We need to discuss this today. What is the importance of a religion? What is hell and heaven? What should you do? What do you want in your life? Who needs a religion? Why does he or she need a religion? Because currently, most people think everybody should follow a religion and those who do not follow a religion are considered to be nonbelievers. That is not true at all. I want to tell you today what the Lord has said in this regard. 

God created two different categories of souls. Category Number One of souls was created with the nature of love; they are love, their enjoyment is in love, their ecstasy is in love. Category Number Two is for those who want to enjoy luxury and comfort; their enjoyment is in luxury. Now, obviously, there are classifications in both categories; classification in a sense that the intensity of love will differ in all souls, in a similar way the hunger for luxury will differ in all souls. 

My father used to tell me, 'If you want to buy a television, why do you want a Japanese TV, made in Japan? They are very expensive. Why don’t you buy a television made in China?' The problem is, the television made in China did not use to be very durable and trustworthy; but [the product] made in Japan was a little more expensive compared to the Chinese product, however, it was durable. So some people who want luxury for a longer period of time, they spend more money and go for products made in Japan; some people who do not afford expensive stuff, they can go for Chinese stuff. Similarly, God created two different types of luxuries: Instant Luxury, which is fake luxury and Eternal Luxury, which is original luxury. Instant Luxury is the luxury of this world. You make money and you can get any type of luxury; however, the Eternal Luxury, which is the original luxury, cannot be bought with money. In order to obtain Eternal Luxury - which of course is available in paradise, not here - God created religions. With the help of religions, people strived, struggled and endeavoured in the way to God and they obtained Eternal Luxury. But Category One, in which the souls were created with the nature of love, their desire is to obtain love, their enjoyment lies in love. 

All these religions teach you how to get to paradise and grab the original luxury: Eternal Luxury. None of these religions is capable of granting you love. There is one religion that can teach you love and that religion was never established by any messenger, by any prophet. That religion was never introduced on earth because that is the Religion of God and it stayed with God. The Religion of God is love. 'God is love and love is God. One who does not know love, he does not know God.' Even Jesus said, 'Love your God with all your heart, with all your soul.' The good news is, the most preserved religion, the most ancient, pre-pre-pre-prehistoric religion: the Religion of Souls, the Religion of God, the Religion of Love, has been brought down on earth by His Divine Grace Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. Those who want to learn to love God and love humanity, only they enjoin that religion. The Religion of Love is for your soul, it's not for your body. All the other religions like Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism are all about your body. You go in the mosque and you offer prayers in the mosque; you go into a church, synagogue and a temple and you physically worship there and you soul doesn't have to be present in that prayer. However, in the Religion of God, because this religion applies to the soul, it doesn't apply to the body; therefore, one has to awaken his soul. This awakening comes of Initiation of the Heart. When the heart is initiated, the souls begin to be awakened. Since this is the Religion of God, there is no prophet, there is no messenger; it is between a human being and God. His Divine Grace Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi puts you through to God directly; there is no middleman. 

Q: What is the Religion of God? 
The word, 'religion,' is the translation of a word in Syriac. The original word for religion is 'deen;' 'religion' is an English word. 'Deen' in Syriac means 'lifestyle,' the way you live your life. Your demeanour, your conduct, the way you live, the way you behave, the way you feel. So the Religion of God is the Divine Lifestyle. In simple words, the religion of God means@ live like God does. In Judaism, you live like the Prophet of Judaism lived. In Christianity, the ideal lifestyle is the lifestyle of Jesus; you live like Jesus lived. In Islam, you live like Prophet Mohammad did. In the Religion of God, you live like God lives. When you follow the Religion of God - God loves all human beings; you love all. God doesn't hate anybody; you don’t hate anybody. God is merciful; you become merciful. God forgives; without fail, you begin to forgive people. But, how would you live like God? Is somebody going to tell you, 'This is how God lives so you should live like him'? No. [It will be] when your soul is entwined with the essence of God. 

[It will be] when your soul is captivated by the Divine Beatific Spells, when your soul has been overwhelmed with the presence of God, when your soul has been housed by the engulfing presence of God. When you have emptied yourself, you are no more than an envelope and you are filled with the presence of God in every nook and cranny of your personality; when God's nose dwells in your nose, when God's eyes dwell in your eyes, when God's tongue dwells in your tongue, then you speak, but the words are from God. Then God will look at people through your eyes. Then you will walk, but the distance will be covered by God. Then you will walk, but it will be God walking in you. 

There was a man and he was praying to God. He said, 'When I am happy and I walk, I find your footsteps next to mine. But when I am in trouble I only find one footstep. Where do you disappear, my Lord?' And the Lord replied, 'When you are happy, I walk with you. When you are in trouble, I walk and you are in my lap.' 

When God is living in you, people will say, 'He is living like God,' but they will never know that it is God who is living there. This is the amalgamation of souls. Just imagine you are engulfed by the presence of God, like you are in the ocean and you are swimming in the presence of God. The presence of God has taken the shape of an ocean and you are swimming in it. You are deeply touched by the presence of God. You become home to God's presence; when you become home to God's presence, then you are Abraham, Moses, Mohammad, Jesus. There are spiritually high personalities who came into this world but never think that you can never be like them. Try! They are creation of God like you are. They had gotten a secretive knowledge with the help of which they became great, and now is the time for everybody to become great.

Gohar has a different taste than God. His name has been proclaimed and invoked for many million years. Some human races know him as Ra, the Sun God. The Egyptian pyramids hold the secret of the Sun God Ra, this is why the image of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has become prominent on the surface of the Sun. Hindus worship their God, Christians worship their God, Jews worship their God, Muslims worship their God, but soon they will come to know: there is only one God, who manifested to different nations in different forms with different tastes. To ancient Egyptians, Sun God RA; for Hindus, Somnath ('Som' means 'The Moon'), Moon God. The Moon God and Sun God are two different forms but these are two different pictures of the Great God, Gohar. 

Q: How can you be sure of the presence of God in your heart? 
With the power of senses, you can tell if something is hot and something is cold; in a similar way, when a man starts to have the attributes of God, this is when you should ask yourself, 'Is this me? No, this is God's presence manifesting through me.' You will begin to notice God's attributes are becoming part of your character. The more love you have in your soul, the closer you get to God. The more power of forbearance, power of patience and power of forgiving people, and at the same time your connection with God will become so strong when you have God in you that anything you think of will reach God and God will take care of it. People go to different worship places for prayers even then their prayers are not answered by God; but a time will come when you will feel, people come and tell you about their problems, and their problems are solved. They will come and just tell you about their problems - even [though] you will not be doing anything to correct them and even without telling God about your problems, the prayers are answered. This is when you realise that God is nearby. 

When you have God in you, you cannot go wrong. When you have God in you, not just you, [but] people around you cannot go wrong. And the good news is that our Lord Gohar Shahi has come to bless all. Whoever they are, whatever language they speak, whatever is the colour of their skin, wherever in the world they come from! In the eyes of Lord Gohar Shahi, all are equal. The bounty of Lord Gohar Shahi is open to all, equally - unless somebody is more hungry! Because some people, when they spiritually become strong, whenever spiritual nourishment is given to them, in the blink of an eye they say, 'I need more. Give me more, give me more.' 

Q: Why is there doubt, sadness and fear in people if God is so near? 
Yes, that is a very good question. It is generally believed that God is near, but the truth is, God is near to only those who are near to God. God is not near everybody. Number one: if God is near you, you can never be sad. One who has God in him, he is always smiling and laughing. When you have God in you, you are always in eternal bliss. You become to fountain of happiness; it's not just that you are happy, whoever comes to you, they also go laughing. When you have God in you, you are always laughing and you are always happy. The Islamic book, the Quran said, 'My friends, have no fear. When God is in you, why would you fear anybody?' It is impossible that you have any kind of fear when God is in you. You have no fear when God is in you. If you are afraid of everything and everybody and if you are always sad, [then] God is not even a 100 miles near you; because one who has God, who loves God, he is never sad. 

Not all human beings may reach the universal consciousness and it is because not everybody is seeking to obtain universal consciousness. Therefore, only those who are seeking to reach universal consciousness will successfully do that. Then, it is also up to God's plan; maybe God doesn't want everybody to reach universal consciousness. Had he planned so, then this world would have been a better place to live in; there would have been no hateful soul, there would have been no hatred and no mischief. 

Q: What are the cosmic responsibilities of those that gain the awareness? 
There are no cosmic responsibilities on them. These responsibilities fall upon them from God and then whoever is anointed by God, after this awareness and conscious level, then they become a medium between the rest of the world and God. They offer practical doctrine and practical teachings to people to embark upon this divine journey and obtain this universal consciousness. We have to see this world with a broader concept. This cosmos is just one place where we have this solar system; there are many, many more ethereal cosmoses, many different realms. This cosmos is just a very small world. There are many more cosmoses unknown to human beings. With the spiritual strength and spiritual knowledge you continue to discover many more realms and many more spiritual cosmoses. Obviously, you eventually get to obtain the intergalactic consciousness. 

His Divine Grace Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has compiled a book on divine love. This book is a masterpiece, full of hidden knowledge and untold secrets of God. This book is available on our website, You can also buy this book from any leading stores, such as Chapters in Canada and Barnes & Noble in America. You can get it on Amazon or you can get it from us for free. All our services are free. We do not take anything in return. This is a labour of love.

Enlightenment of the Souls

Before we met His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, I had no knowledge of spirituality. I had never heard of spirituality and I didn't know whether we were supposed to love God, to be honest. I didn't know why we follow a religion; I only knew that we were supposed to worship. That's all I knew, I did not know anything else. Then, when I came to know of many different denominations in the religion, I was really confused and disappointed and I didn't know what denomination in the religion was correct. So I stopped practising that religion. Then we met HDE Gohar Shahi and HDE would always furnish His statement with rational, intellectual reasoning. HDE Gohar Shahi would never say anything without reasoning and this was really a great help; I was able to relate to it. What was written in the holy book, the Quran, seemed like a book of mythology and something which could never be within my grasp. It looked like it is a story and we are not in a character of this play. It is beyond our reach. I could never relate to any of the Hadiths (Traditions of the Prophet) or any verse of the Holy Bible, Quran or any other book. When I met HDE Gohar Shahi and heard others also, I was completely sold. I was completely and utterly convinced; I believed if truth existed, then that truth is right now in front of me. This was my understanding.

To people alien to spiritual practice, spirituality is very fancy kind of stuff. But when it comes to practise of spirituality, spirituality is not a bed of roses. Spirituality is the most difficult target to achieve. Spirituality is a struggle against your own self. Spirituality is to negate your Self; your Ego has to be demolished. All the impurities of thought, all the impurities of your fantasised idealism are demolished. All your arrogance is broken and everything in you is completely and utterly shattered. 

One who practises spirituality truly, then you will hardly see that person smiling. However when he is halfway through spirituality, you will see him smiling even when he is in pain. He will learn to cope with the pain that life gives; the pain that this body gives to you, the pain that these relations give to you.

We have many relations in this world. We have brothers and we have sisters; these relations are gifted to us, we do not make efforts to make these relations. Mother and father - these two relations are gifted to you by birth; and then brothers and sisters [are as well]. Then you marry somebody, you become a husband and she becomes your wife. These relations appear to be the most important relations in the world for you, however all these relations are fake relations. They have no reality. These relations disappear one day. Then you are supposed to make an immortal relation and that immortal relation is established with God. When you have established that relation, all other relations seem to have no value.  This is what happens in spirituality. When you embark upon a spiritual journey and when you start purifying yourself, purifying your heart, then some very close relations start to give you problems. But you are never excused.

We all say we are free. Barack Obama says, 'All Americans are free in the United States of America; it's a free country.' We just say we are free, we are not free. Prisons are not just built with bricks and wood. Some prisons are prisons of emotions. Some are prisons of relations, habits. There are so many types of prisons. But when you want to dedicate your life towards adopting spirituality and you want to purify yourself, sometimes you see a lot of your relations start giving you problems and you are hurt. How? If a friend gives you a problem because now you want to purify yourself, you can tell them, 'If you are not happy with me, then leave.' But then, if one of the closest relations like your husband, mother or wife does not agree to your struggle in spirituality and they give you a hard time - some people give in, they stop their struggle in spirituality and they do what their relations want them to do. But some people, they want to continue to improve the quality of their life; some people pursue in the way of the truth and they continue to purify themselves, their Ego and their heart. They only continue to do that when they ignore what their really close relations want them to do. They don't listen to them. Well, they don't listen to them, but at the same time they feel pain. They think, 'What if my relatives were happy with what I am doing?' So we are not free; we can't make free choices. Sometimes we want to do something, but we don't do it - either the parents don't like it, your husband doesn't like it or your wife, mother or father doesn't like it. And in most cases, if the husband doesn't like it, he thinks, 'Why is my wife doing this? This is bullshit.' If they don't like it, they call it bullshit. They force you to do what they want you to do. Similarly, sometimes parents think they know the best because they are old and they know everything; they think you were born yesterday and they are very experienced. Every old man thinks the same. All old men have this mischievous thought deeply rooted in their thick head that they know the best because they have lived more in this world - but that's not true. I have seen younger people who are more matured than older people; you must have seen some of them.

Sometimes, when the mind starts malfunctioning and it is stuck at one point, like evil, then your thoughts are affected and whenever you think, you think evil. There are so many mental, spiritual and physical disorders you go through. Whereas in spirituality, everything becomes clear. Everything becomes crystal clear, why? Because in spirituality, your souls, your heart and all your physical, emotional and spiritual senses are purified and empowered by divine energy and divine light. In order to become a perfect human being, one must adopt spirituality. No religion is good without spirituality. No book is good without spirituality. Spirituality is not knowledge; spirituality is reality.

What is cleanliness?
If I ask you, 'What is cleanliness?' You will say, 'If some place is dirty, you remove the dirt and removing the dirt is cleanliness.' This is knowledge; but if there is dirt and you are trying to make the place clean, then you have to do a lot of hard work. So knowing what cleanliness is, is one thing and cleaning something, removing the dirt - which of course requires some real hard work - is something else. This act of removing the dirt is spirituality. In spirituality, you separate from your souls the dirt which has come on to them from evil, from the devil and from wrong things that you have been doing in this world. Every time you do something wrong, as a punishment, something evil is attached to your souls.

Prophet Mohammad said, 'When you sin, the Bookkeeper Angels record that sin in their book and at the same time a black spot is also marked on your heart.'

With wrong things that you do, one day all your heart becomes dark, pitch black and it is all blocked. This is when your nature - the nature of a human being - is covered by the nature of evil and you start doing evil things; because the human being in you is no longer awakened. This is why you do not show, you do not exhibit human instincts and human characteristics - because evil has [been] empowered and the overwhelming effects of evil are now prevalent in your character. In order to bring yourself to the surface, you need to do a lot of cleaning; this process of cleaning the dirt of evil from your nature is the act of spirituality. Spirituality is not just sitting cross-legged and visualising that you are strolling in the paradise, smelling beautiful flowers and flying here and there. This is a luxurious, imaginative journey which is fruitless. You may call it meditation but this meditation is not going to serve any purpose. This is not spirituality. Spirituality is to revive your souls; it is to connect your souls with the Divine Powerhouse which is God.

Now we have heard what our Lord said regarding the difficulties that you encounter during your spiritual journey. When you embark upon a spiritual journey there are a lot of difficulties that you encounter and a lot of resistance that you encounter. There is a lot of negativity that you have to put up with and a lot of evil forces that will appear as a hurdle on your path towards cleanliness, towards spirituality - but you must remove it. You must encounter it and you must not give in. You have to take all these difficulties head on and if you successfully remove all these hurdles. If you successfully carry on marching towards your divine target, then you are a brave man. You deserve to be holy because you are fighting against evil. Evil doesn't fight against evil. If you are fighting against evil, it means you are something against evil. 

Only those will fight against evil who are not evil. If you encounter evil and you give in, it means you are evil and you cannot fight against it. Only those fail to fight against evil who are part of evil; those who are not evil, no matter what happens, how difficult it becomes, you will never give in. 

When the Lord notices your enthusiasm and your determination - when the Lord sees that his flesh and bones are weak but his souls are still willing, then comes the divine help. Then you are not alone in that fight against evil. You see, the problem is, evil has entered us. We have to root it out of us. As long as it's outside, we are okay; but when it comes inside of us, we are affected and we become evil. You are not affected when the evil is outside you, but when it is inside you, then you are gone; do not call yourself a human being.

All these Muslim Jihadis who are carrying out jihad in the name of Islam and in the name of God, do you think they are holy people? No, it is the evil in them; the devil in them is making them kill humanity. The devil has entered into them. If they had fought against the devil and they purified themselves and became good Muslims, they would become holy. No religion is bad; it is the people who follow it. If people who are following it do not follow it correctly, then they should be held responsible for anything bad that they do. But now is the time for the entire humanity to embrace spirituality. Forget about religion because religions have been corrupted. When all these religions were established by their respective Messengers and Prophets, they were fantastic. They were beautiful. They continued to be beautiful and perfect until the sainthood was still there in that religion. When the saints were discontinued in any religion, the spiritual system was destroyed, When the spiritual system was destroyed, the religion collapsed - either it is Judaism, Christianity or Islam. The religions were alive when there was a spiritual system in them and that spiritual system was alive. Now you have no system by the help of which you can purify your inner, your heart and your soul. Practice of rituals or worship is to do with your body. This does not change you. People go to mosques, churches, synagogues and temples and do all sorts of worship. Do they change? No, they don't change. You only change when you embark upon a spiritual journey. This spiritual journey will start only when you have a Spiritual Guide. Without a Spiritual Guide, there is no spirituality at all.

What is the role of a Spiritual Guide?
The Spiritual Guide is like a Spiritual Father. What does a father do? A father takes care of you from the moment you are born into this world. Your father takes care of you, gives you food, clothing, all the nourishment, education and a place to live in - everything. But what a father cannot do - he does rear up your body, but he doesn't rear up your soul. A Spiritual Father will awaken your soul, purify your heart, initiate your heart and purify it and when you are completely purified, the Spiritual Guide will take your souls to God and he will continue to guide you until you become fully acquainted with God. Once you become an embodiment of God on earth - God starts to speak through your mouth, God starts to see people through your eyes and God starts to touch people through your senses - then the Spiritual Guide will say, 'Okay mate, you're done now. My company with you is over.' This is the function of a Spiritual Guide.

Some people might wonder, 'Is there any exercise in spirituality that they must do everyday? What should they do? Is there any special worship they must do?' No. All you need to do is concentrate on your heart and make sure that whatever name of God was given to you when you were initiated, that name of God is synchronised in your heartbeats. That's all you need to do.

We cannot deny the fact that we were created by somebody and that somebody who created us deserves to be loved by us. Our parents give birth to us and for this reason we give them respect and we love them. Then what about God who created us and our mothers, fathers, sisters and everybody else? So, when the souls are spiritualised and they are awakened, this desire of seeing God becomes so strong that you want to see the one who created you. You want to see him and his love fills up the entire souls in your body. But that is not the only one benefit of practising spirituality. When you practise spirituality, you discover yourself.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, 'There is a hidden treasure in you, but you are not aware of it. Your illness is within you and its remedy also is within you, but you are not aware of it.'

You see, people talk about cosmic energy, cosmos and the solar system. Why do you want to limit yourself to talking about it? Why do you want to limit yourself to just phraseology? There is a hidden treasure in you, seven souls. There are seven cosmos and each soul, when enlightened and awakened, serves like a key to open before you the entire cosmos. When your souls are enlightened and awakened, with your soul you can reach that cosmos, be there, feel it, see it, experience it and live there and accumulate all the energy there is, as much as you want. So, any number of cosmos there are in the entire universe, all the keys to these cosmos are within you; these keys are your souls. Whichever cosmos you want to go to, just close your eyes and you are there - because you will be fully empowered with divine energy to the brim and your souls will travel faster than the speed of light. God's light is better than this light, and the divine light has more speed than the speed of this light. When you have all your souls energised and empowered by divine energy, you just close your eyes and think about the destination; whichever cosmos you want to travel to, you think about it and in no time, your souls are there. Your body is sleeping in your bed and your souls are roaming about. One of your souls may be in this cosmos and another soul is roaming about in another cosmos; you are everywhere. You have seven souls in your body and then another nine assistant souls in your body. When all these souls are enlightened and awakened, from within these seven souls, another nine assistant souls appear. So then you are sixteen. You are one, but there are sixteen like you in you. Your body is resting in bed and these sixteen souls in your body, when they are free to travel, you are at sixteen different places at one time. Some people will see you in Washington DC and others will say, 'No, he was in Toronto,' and some will say, 'No he was in Sydney.'

There was a Muslim saint and his name was Mujaddid. Some people came to see him and they said, 'We spotted you in Kaaba.' He said, 'I never went there.' 'No? But we saw you.' Another group came to visit him and said, 'We saw you at the mosque of the Prophet in Medina,' and then another group said, 'We saw you in Baghdad.' He said, 'I've never been to all these places.' They said who was it? He said, 'It was something inside me. It was my souls and these souls are sixteen.' If you revive them, if you awaken them, you can be present simultaneously at sixteen different places. This is spirituality. A Spiritual Master does not have to be in your physical company to guide you. You just call upon him and he can travel in a flash. The moment you think you need his help and you call him, he is there. His soul will travel faster than the speed of light because he has divine energy. This is spirituality.

Now you are a free bird, you are sixteen. Even if your body dies, you don't care; you are already flying here and there. Some of these saints, when their souls went out, they didn't bother to see what their body was doing. This body is like a cage; but if there is no bird inside the cage, it's useless. This body is like bank account; if there is no money, this bank account is useless. This body is like a wallet; if there is no money or valuables in the wallet, it's useless. Every single human being on earth has these souls inside him and inside her. With this knowledge of spirituality, they can revive their spiritual senses, they can awaken their souls and they can become immortal forever. They can set themselves free from the shackles of death, diseases and illnesses - only if you set your souls free. If these souls are not awakened and they are unconscious and you die, this is a horrible death. It's like a treasure ruined and destroyed. Before you die, you need to set your souls free. These souls are like birds, set them free and wherever they come from, each of your souls will go to a different cosmos.

How do you translate happiness into real life? Money can make you happy, so many things can make you happy, but that happiness doesn't last long and it's very superficial. All these different types of happiness that you have in your life, if something bad strikes, then suddenly this happiness goes away. But the real happiness is in the soul; when the soul is happy, it is happy forever. 

Nothing bad can take this happiness away from the soul. You have this internal content. So happiness that doesn't stay with you forever is not happiness at all; the happiness which stays with you forever is the happiness of the soul. In order to make your soul happy, awaken the soul. The happiness of the soul lies in being able to see, feel and be in the company of God. This is my understanding. We eat wonderful delicious food; if it's delicious we enjoy it. What exactly in us enjoys the food? Taste buds. It is not complete enjoyment, is it? Only one organ in your body is enjoying the food and you are so happy. Look at that! When you are sleeping with your partner, having sex, only one organ is happy. The rest is not happy. We understand that every organ has some kind of enjoyment. The body enjoys when the body is resting; the enjoyment doubles when somebody is giving you a proper massage. The body enjoys when the body is resting; in a similar way, did you every try to know what is it that your soul enjoys? Where does the enjoyment of the soul lie? What is the enjoyment of your heart?

The Quran says, 'Beware: the heart finds its content in the Remembrance of God.'

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, 'When you play music with the name of God, your Nafs will enjoy it. If you dance with the name of God or you play music with the name of God, you will enjoy it.' In a similar way, the enjoyment of your soul lies in seeing God. There is no other enjoyment for your soul other than in seeing God.

What is the connection between Sufism and Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi?
Sufism is practice of spirituality and you purify your souls and enlighten them. The word, 'Sufi,' means, 'Purification.' So Sufism is the path of purification. Either one reaches God after purification or he reaches Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi; Sufism can lean in both directions - it's just about destination. If you are empowered by the divine light of Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, then you are a Sufi of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. If your souls are empowered by the divine light of God, then you are a Sufi of God. It's about the difference of divine energy, two different sources. That's all the difference there is, there is no other difference.

Quote of the Day: As You Would Involuntary Look at Glittering Stars...

Today's Quote of the Day is from The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi. 'As you would involuntarily look at glittering stars, whether it is Mars, Mercury, or some unknown star, in a similar fashion would God look at the enlightened hearts only, whether or not they practise a religion.'
