is your Inner self? What do we mean when we talk of the Inner self? Is it a part
of the body or its existence in the body... still a matter of speculation!
Inner self within every living being including human
beings is the subtle core present within every being
without which the existence of the body itself gets
negated. The body is there for our Inner self is
there. The Inner self can live without the body
but the body cannot sustain on its own.
This Inner self has been defined in sacred Scriptures
of all religions of the world as our soul the atman
within. It is this soul atman which is on its cosmic
journey. After a total journey of 8.4 million manifestations...
this Inner self reaches its logical end. On earthly
plane this journey of 8.4 million manifestations
approximately requires 96.4 million earthly years.
A long journey indeed!
the day a child is born... this Inner self within every living being becomes active.
For all practical purposes every body is an inert matter. Only after a body is
activated the role of senses and mind start... in absence of the Inner self within,
the body would die its natural death.
Of all the reasons in the first place, why did God Almighty create such an arrangement?
The power that exists with the Inner self could have been given to the body itself!
What was wrong with that?
we need to understand as the requisite mining machinery is necessary to remove
the impurities within the ore to separate metal from it... likewise a body is
required by our soul atman (the Inner self within) to cleanse itself of the dross
within... The total journey of 8.4 million manifestations only intended for that!
Devoid of all the impurities... this Inner self within us (within every body)
becomes free... liberates forever from the cycle of manifesting a body again and
again! This is the crux of life... every body being a mere outer covering for
the Inner self within.
by the ego... many a times the body considers itself the centre of all focus.
No matter what... many human beings do not recognize the presence of the Inner
self within. Does it negate the presence of the Inner self within? Never... but
as God Almighty does not interfere with the working of every living being... everything
has been left to the power of discrimination, a privilege available only to human
We may or may not believe in the existence of the Inner self or even God Almighty...
the truth remains that every living being on Mother Earth owes its existence to
the presence of an Inner self within the body.
the domain of God every living being has a right to live. Every human being for
that matter has the power to discriminate between what is acceptable to one and
what is not! Those who submit themselves before Almighty God find the path towards
God easily accessible. Those who do not only prolong their journey on Mother Earth!
To recognize the presence of the inner self within us is a godly gift bestowed
on us by Almighty God. It is only the power of discrimination and logistics that
makes a man arrive at the right conclusions. All the atheists in the world are
not dammed for that matter... everyone has a right to live!
a robber conducts a robbery... he never feels guilty about it! Left on its own...
he feels absolutely comfortable committing robberies one after another. Unless
this person visualizes the wrongdoing from a different perspective he continues
feeling that wrongs committed by him are in order.
By grace of God it sometimes happens that even a hardened robber or dacoit changes
overnight. It was sight of a spiritual master that even a hardcore criminal like
Vyasa turned from a sporadic killer to a perfect spiritual being. He became Sage
Vyasa... the writer of the famous commentary on the Bhagavad Gita (the doctrine
given to humanity by Lord
Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata).
To summarize all... our
Inner self is the real self of us all. None can exist without the presence of
the Inner self. Every living body on Mother Earth owes its existence to the presence
of an Inner self within every body. It is this Inner self which has been defined
in hinduism and spirituality as our atman the soul within.
meditational retreat, spiritual retreat, personal motivation and personal development
class organized owes its existence to the presence of an Inner self within us.
