What is the purpose of meditation?What is the purpose of a spiritual practice?
The purpose of these activities is to know and experience that we are all beings of light - that we are all one. This is also called soul realization. The purpose of soul realization is to manifest it in this world through our thoughts, words & deeds.
What are the stages of this journey towards soul realization?According to Master Choa Kok Sui there are different stages of soul realization.
1. The 1st stage requires the intellectual understanding that you are The Soul. You are a spiritual being of divine intelligence, divine love & divine power. You are not the physical body; you are not your thoughts or your emotions! You are so much more than this.
2. In the 2nd stage you experience one’s self as the soul. It is during meditation that the experience of being more than the body, thoughts & emotions may be felt. The body, thoughts & feelings are replaced by the feeling of light .
With further development & a sustained spiritual practice the practitioner may experience the realization of the nature of the soul. Master Choa Kok Sui describes this as the recognition that we are all beings of light & this light radiates in all directions throughout the physical & inner universe.
4. The 3rd stage in soul realization is the experience of the incarnated soul (this is you) having union with the higher soul. The incarnated soul (you) & the higher soul are one. The practitioner also experiences oneness with all. This stage is when the process of arhatship starts.
