2. God – our Supreme Father,
the Supreme Soul (Shiv Baba)
God is called the Supreme Soul or more accurate is that the
Supreme Soul is known to us as the God, the creator Almighty.
He is supreme among all souls. Yet, like souls, God is a subtle
point of light. But unlike human Souls, that Soul is beyond the
cycle of birth and death and the effects of Karma (actions) in
the form of experience of pleasure or pain. God is the Supreme
Father, Mother, Teacher and Guide of all human souls. We all
remember Him only in our difficult time, it is such inbuilt within
us. So let us explore the truth about God, as revealed by himself
Representations of incorporeal God
Being incorporeal, God is represented by an oval-shaped
stone or light in many religions. In Hinduism, God is
worshipped as an oval-shaped stone called Shivlingam
or Jyotirlingam, meaning a symbol of Shiv or symbol of
light. Muslims revere an oval-shaped black stone called
Sang-e-Aswad (holy stone), which is placed in the Kaaba
in the Grand Mosque in Mecca. Jesus Christ
(Christianity) has said and described God as ‘light ‘.
Mahatma Buddha started deep meditation and found a
spiritual existence of God, beyond the cycle of birth and death. Hence he describes the Self as
such free beings detached and as a part of God. All religions point to the supreme soul in one or
other way. The common is clear that ‘God is a being of Light’ and so is worshipped as
Name of God
Everything that exists in nature has a name and a form. We get a name when we take birth. In
our each birth, our name is different. But what about the name of the One who never takes a
birth, is ‘unborn’! His name must be eternal. So as God has revealed Himself with His eternal name ‘Shiv’ or ‘Shiva’ (when pronounced in English). The meaning of Shiv is ‘One who is Ever
Benevolent’. Benevolent means the One who does good to all in all times.
Residence of God (Where God eternally live)
Soul World (Home of eternal Peace and Light)
Till now, you have understood the reality
of God the incorporeal supreme soul.
Now let us turn to what we all souls call –
‘Our Sweet Home’. This is also the Home
of our spiritual father (God). There is
complete and eternal sweet silence. Why
sweet? Because here we are merged in
the ocean of love. There is no
body-consciousness (as there is no
body). We and God live there as divine
points of light as an inverted tree-like
structure (as shown in the picture),
where God is the seed of the human tree, roots are souls who have a direct connection with the
seed (Brahman souls) and branches represent the religions established in the world. Rest leaves
are souls of those religions. As clearly shown, God the seed is the source of power for all the
branches and leaves.
Names to represent the Soul World: Home of eternal light, Home of Peace, Sweet silence home,
Paramdhaam (Supreme home), incorporeal world, Nirvaan (beyond sound) and Mul Vatan (the
original everlasting residence).
Our Relationship with God
As the Father
Father is the word used for the creator. In Christianity also, God is called – The Father. Actually,
he is our father because we get an inheritance of Heaven (the Golden Age) from him. God did
not create the souls (us). But he comes and re-creates the Heaven on earth. Those who help
Him shall also receive this great inheritance!
As a Teacher
Explained that the Godfather creates Heaven and gives it to His children who help and follow
His directions. But which directions? So the directions are His teachings. God is called the
ocean of knowledge. He comes and imparts the entire knowledge of the creator and the
creation to His children. He is also our Supreme Teacher. He gives us His advice on what is the
right thing to do so as to receive the highest fruit.
As a Friend
Now as we have every relation with God, we can share anything with him. Made a mistake? Go
and accept your mistake. Seek forgiveness. Such a friend who gives the best advice and is there
for us anywhere anytime.
As a Guide
This is the last relationship with God. We longed for liberation. After revealing the secrets of
Karma, God teaches us the RajaYog through which we the souls are freed from the results of
our past actions. God liberates us from all sorrow that we created for ourselves. Liberating us
like this, he takes us back Home.
When does God appear before Us?
It is now understood that our relationship with God, is of Father and Son, of Teacher and
Student, of best friends, of a Guru and his follower. But when does this all relationships are
enjoyed? Because there should be a time all this – God is knowledgeful, The ocean of love, etc…
was certainly experienced by all of us!
As discussed on the World Drama Cycle page, the world drama repeats. The Golden Age comes
after Iron age. This is depicted as the Transformation time. This small time is known as
Confluence Age (Sangam). Hence something major has to happen now. At this time only God
has to appear to perform the role of ‘Creator of New World’. God needs a medium, a body to
speak his knowledge. He comes and adopts us through the corporeal medium of Brahma.
Brahma is the first human soul. God plays his role as the Creator through Brahma. So only in this
time given of about 100 years does God appear to impart us the knowledge of truth and give us
the inheritance of New world (heaven). To give you the greatest news, it was around 1936 when
this incognito part of God began. By now, the message is widely spread. And by the end,
everyone would get the message.
One may observe that all the major events happened in the last 100 years only (Science, atomic
power, new researches, rise of human talents and fame). This is because God the Source.
