Self-Awareness Level 2, Lesson 1: How Thoughts & Emotions Impact Behaviour

The full lecture is available in English language on the AlRa Tv YouTube Channel. Press the play button above to watch the video.

Editor’s note: the following is the first lesson in Younus AlGohar’s course on Self-Awareness, Level 2: Emotional Intelligence. For better background information, read Self-Awareness, Level 1, in the Messiah Herald.

Human psychology is very sensitive. Emotions (both positive and negative) and our reaction to different things are very complicated. Whether it is love or hatred, generosity or stinginess, holding grudges or forgiving people, it is all about emotions. Emotions play a very pivotal role in our life.

Not enough has been discussed in the spiritual circles about human behaviour and emotions. However, everything is revolving around emotions.

Emotions are, oftentimes, a set of reactions to things. Whether you are being grateful to God or you’re being thankful to your fellow men; whether you’re unhappy with yourself, with your fellow men or with God; it is all reaction.

You will see people with positive and negative reactions. Some people are more likely to exhibit positive emotions. Some others tend to be very economical with exhibiting positive emotions.

Negative emotions come from the negative source in you. Positive emotions will come from an enlightened heart and a conscious soul.

Sometimes, you will see people with only negative reactions and emotions. You’ll wonder why such people only exhibit negative emotions, and why their reaction is oftentimes more severe than expectations. This is all human psychology. Our brain is the centre point where everything is cooked.

Some people spend 16-18 years in school, college and university. They become discerning, learned individuals. They think they know everything, but that is foolish. There is so much knowledge. There is so much to know about so many things in your life, that you can never learn enough to understand everything.

Psychology on its own will tell you nothing. With just psychology, you will become a sophisticated mind with a lot of unresolved, mysterious stories in your brain.

I have noticed one thing as a spiritual person: that in every field of different types of knowledge if spirituality is not present, that knowledge is useless.

For example, psychology is the study of human behaviour, but it doesn’t tell you what it is that human behaviour depends on. It doesn’t tell you how human behaviour becomes positive and how it turns negative. Psychology is all about human behaviour but it doesn’t tell you the source; it doesn’t tell you how to manoeuvre your emotions.

Emotions are like a tennis ball that you throw at the wall and it rebounds back to you. Sometimes, somebody will say something you don’t understand; you’ll derive a desired meaning out of what they said and get angry. When you get angry, there will be an outburst of unclassified emotions.

So in that case, the action will be taking place inside your brain and the reaction will also be taking place inside your brain. You’ll be the sole creator of the mess you cooked in your mind.

What happens when somebody is not sound by mind? Oftentimes, unruffled, undisturbed peace surrounds him; even then, there is an unsolicited reaction. He’ll just be sitting in solitude and sometimes he’ll cry. Other times, he’ll smile. When you ask him what happened, he will say, ‘Nothing.’ What is it then?

You’ll be thinking about something nice and that nice thought will have a rebound. There will be a reaction: you will feel happy. This is self-acquired happiness. Then you will think of something really horrible and have all sorts of ideas. [You’ll draw conclusions based on your own estimation]. This is how you manipulate your brain.

Some people have a habit of thinking too much. If you wear a jacket every day, it will wear out very soon. If you use your tongue a lot, it will wear out one day. Then after that, anything that comes from your mouth will be nonsense. In a similar way, there is a gateway between the conscious mind and subconscious mind which is opened when you overload your brain. You won’t even know who is coming and going. Thoughts will be coming like rain from the subconscious mind. You won’t even be thinking about something, but the thoughts will be coming.

When you experience something and you think it is of less importance, then it goes into your subconscious mind. You only remember things which are in your conscious mind. However, sometimes, when you’re overloading your brain, the gateway between the subconscious and conscious mind is opened. Then you begin to remember the things stored in your subconscious. [And you become confused].

For example, something happened last week that you forgot because you thought it was of less importance. It was stored in your subconscious mind. Now, because you are [putting a lot of pressure on your mind], those thoughts are now coming into your conscious mind from the subconscious. You’re not aware of the source. You didn’t think about it, but you saw it happening somewhere.

The IQ and EQ Level

The IQ (intelligence quotient) level is all about putting every piece of information in your conscious mind. For example, you walked through a street. When you walked through the street, what did you see and did you think about it? That is what your IQ level will be judged upon.

For example, where I am sitting, there is a laptop, laptop case, bag, bottle of water, juice, glasses, phone, small fan, light and wall socket.

If you pay attention, every piece of information will go into your conscious mind. If you don’t pay attention, it will go into your subconscious mind. As result, your IQ level will go down.

It is like you have £100 in £20 and £10 notes and you only pay attention to the £20 notes because £10 notes are of less importance to you. You’ll put the £20 notes somewhere safe; you’ll put the £10 notes in your pocket and you won’t notice that they are falling out.

To improve your IQ level, when you look at something, pay attention. When you pay attention, that information will be stored in your conscious mind.

For example, you walked through a hallway and didn’t notice the glass of water on the side. If someone says, ‘There is a glass here,’ you’ll say, ‘Where? I didn’t see it.’ You saw it, but you didn’t pay attention, that is why it is not in your mind. Some people are so confused; they can see the glass, but there is no coordination between their mind and their eyes.

The IQ level is all about storing every piece of information in your conscious mind. You can ignore things, but your eyes can’t.

Your eyes are cameras. If you keep your camera on, it will keep showing pictures and images, whether or not you want to see them. In a similar way, your eyes and ears record every image and every word. Thoughts, things – anything you notice and hear – if it is done with attention, it is stored in your conscious mind and improves your IQ level.

This is what I am telling you; you won’t find it in psychology books. The IQ level, when not accompanied by the EQ (emotional quotient) level, is zero.

If you see someone beautiful and don’t show emotions, you [are not mentally sound]. If I see a beautiful woman walking, if both my IQ and EQ levels are good and I’m not religious, I must say, ‘Wow, beautiful.’ This will mean I have a healthy brain.

In order to improve your IQ level, you have to work on your EQ level. You become ill mentally when your IQ level lacks emotional intelligence. Show emotions!

If you see something and there is no reaction, you’re suppressing your soul!

For example, a room is messy and stinking, but you will see someone sleeping there because he lacks emotional intelligence. His emotional sensory system is not responding to the fact that the room is dirty. This means that there is something wrong with his emotional sensory system.  He will see that somebody is handsome and beautiful, but he won’t care. This is a mental disorder.

Another scenario is if something has fallen on the ground in a restaurant kitchen. All the workers, rather than picking up the fallen object, prefer to step over it and be on their way. This is because their brains are not working properly. They become naive to everything and are not aware of the intelligence of emotions. This is why they have turned into cabbages.

If a human being doesn’t have emotions, in my eyes, there is no difference between them and a cabbage.

So the IQ level is all about the EQ level. It is about emotional discipline. When there is something that should awaken your senses, and still your senses are not awakened, then you are emotionally dead.

When your emotions are dead and your brain is not responding, you cannot obtain divine love. It is impossible.

When your senses are not even responding to tiny things like the room being dirty, it is not that you don’t care; your senses are not awakened. If something is lying on the floor and your mind is not telling you to pick it up and put it to the side, there is something wrong in your mind. This is a mental illness. Some people think, ‘Why should I do it?’ That is also a mental illness. Maybe tomorrow, you will say, ‘I need to use the toilet, but why should I do it?’

Giving Yourself Peace of Mind

You’re sitting and with a bird’s eye view, you have seen everything. Your eyes have stored all the images. Sometimes, we just see things without [hearing them]. Our eyes record those images and they go into the back of our mind, stored in the subconscious. Oftentimes, when those images reappear before our eyes, we wonder what it was. Your eyes have stored the images but you didn’t pay attention, this is why the information is incomplete. This is why your thoughts are ruffled and disturbed.

When you are somewhere, in order to have a healthy mind, you must see things with attention. If you don’t pay attention, this image which is stored in your subconscious mind will not have enough information and then it will trouble you later on.

At home, if somebody knocks on the door, I ask, ‘Who is it?’ I am not bothered about who comes and goes, but I need to know. This is because if somebody was knocking on the door but I don’t know who it was, this thought that somebody came and knocked on the door will be stored in my subconscious. It will bother me later on.

When things are incomplete and they transfer themselves from the subconscious mind onto the conscious mind, they create doubts.

Be careful: your eyes are like spy cameras. Everything is being stored. You want to make sure that everything being stored by your sensory system is not incomplete. Pay attention so that every piece of information is complete. When there is full information, your mind will be healthy. You will never be under any delusion or have any doubts.

Oftentimes, when people close to me are annoyed and irritated, I want to know why. I cannot feed my brain with incomplete knowledge. This is important for me. For example, if  you leave your phone at home at 3 AM, you’re walking alone and you don’t tell anybody where you’ve gone or why, [this will disturb me]. This is the inquisitiveness of my mind. I have trained my mind not to store anything incomplete. I need to know the reason. Right or wrong, I don’t care. I’m only concerned that when this information is stored in the back of my mind, it is not incomplete.

You need to be careful. Everything is being stored. What you need to do now is, whatever is being stored should be stored along with relevant information. If the information stored in your mind is incomplete, your IQ level will go down. IQ level is judged by what you have in your conscious mind and how much your conscious mind is affected by your subconscious mind. When you know everything which is being stored, this information will never go into the subconscious mind because it is not useless. The more information is stored in your conscious mind, the more intelligent you are.

In Conclusion

The relation between emotions and intelligence: the ability to identify something is intelligence, to react is emotions!

Some people make a mountain out of a molehill when they have pain. When somebody else has pain, they think, ‘It is none of my business.’ Such people are emotionally dead.

This is the initial introduction to the type of psychology I am imposing on you. This will go on for seven days. I bet after the completion of Self-Awareness Level 2, you will think you are a saint because you will stand on a street and you will know everything. You will know why people are doing what they are doing. This is IQ and it is accompanied by EQ level.

You cannot be an intelligent man if your emotional sensory system is dead.

If the room is stinking and you are comfortable, you are a cabbage. You are unresponsive. When you are sitting somewhere, your eyes are storing all the images and you’re not paying attention to it. You’re completely ignoring their existence. This is where your IQ level goes down.

It doesn’t take too long. Wherever you’re sitting, you can see things; just pay a little attention and complete the information.

For example, I need a glass and there is a glass nearby but because I didn’t pay attention, the image of the glass is in my subconscious mind, but the information is incomplete. Then I’ll ask someone to bring me a glass and they’ll say, ‘It is there.’ This sort of thing happens many times with so many people, but why?

We simply say, ‘They have an absent mind.’ What is absent? The mind is not absent; the information is absent in the mind.

In Self-Awareness Level 2, we will deal with IQ and EQ. Then comes higher awareness: awareness of God in you. Now we’re talking about awareness of you in you; in the third level, we will all talk about God and his presence inside you. Who is behind the scenes working in you? Level 3 will help you know who is inside you – God or the Devil – and how to detect it.

Self-Awareness Level 2 will go on for seven days. I guarantee you that after these seven days, you will have a lot more understanding of life and a lot more confidence.

Self-Awareness: A Blessing in Disguise

Self-Awareness: A Blessing in Disguise

Self-Awareness: A Blessing in Disguise

The awareness of who you are is very important. If you have been accepted by God and have been awarded God’s love, then you will be granted a kind of special awareness. That awareness is not about God; that awareness will be about you: who you are.

When God is displeased and angry with you, he deprives you of self-awareness. What a darkness it is that you know everything but yourself!

Those who are granted awareness of themselves become very humble.

There is a self-humiliation process within yourself. When the mirror of your heart is polished well, then your ego reflects on it. It shows you constantly how ugly your ego is. You will be under the impression at all times that God is not happy with you.

Those who are misled and misguided are always under the blanket of this impression that they’re the best and very holy. If you think you are holy, then there is a problem with your mind and heart.

Along with educating the minds of children, [we] should also educate their hearts. When their hearts are educated, they will be better people on Earth. With a better mind, you become a better engineer or doctor. However, without the education of the heart, you’re evil like Hitler.

Awareness is very important, but there is no college out there where you learn awareness of yourself. This process starts within yourself the more your heart is enlightened, the more your self is mortified and the closer you get to God. You need to be so close to God [in such a way where] you can’t be closer to God anymore. Then he will give you the awareness of you.

Everyone, whether they practise a religion or they don’t, thinks they are the best. They believe that they know everything. They say such things because they don’t have awareness.

This is why I said long ago, ‘Self-exploration is divine exploration. Self-awareness is divine awareness.’ This is very important: the awareness of you to you.

What a pity it is that people can know who you are, but you do not know who you are!

Hadith-e-Qudsi (Sacred Tradition):

When God chooses somebody to be successful in their efforts in pleasing God, then God causes them to find flaws within themselves.

This means you know you are bad. If you know you are bad, God loves you. If God doesn’t love you, you will never know you are bad.

There are so many examples of people not wanting to admit that they are bad. This is because they lack God’s willingness. When God wants you to be successful in your efforts in pleasing God, then he causes you to be aware of yourself.

Spiritual Infusion (Zam)
20th December 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Spiritual Infusion (Zam)

‘Zam’ in English means fusion. Never before with a spiritual connotation was this word used.

Spirituality starts from revival of the spiritual heart. The revival of the spiritual heart connects one with God. This is the beginning. Culmination in the spiritual sphere of the world is when, with the help of spirituality, God is unveiled before the seeker of the path. God manifests his splendour before them.

When the seeker of the path manages to reach this stage and arrive at the Station of Union with God, there are different jobs for a person like this.

God may decide to confine him to God, which means such a person is completely cut off from the world and its contents. He is cut off from all creatures. He is thickly and profusely consumed with the essence and presence of God.

Or, in order to make some use of the spiritual man who has become united with the essence of God, God confers upon him the power and authority of initiating other hearts onto the divine path. He is then delegated by God to represent God. He becomes the complete embodiment of God, like Thomas (who was a very close disciple of Jesus Christ).

If I dissect the word, culmination, in spirituality it means to find ultimate union with God.

What actually happens is, one of the souls that rest in the head (the Ana) is taken to the audience of God. The image of God that one sees in that moment in time is absorbed by that soul.

The live image of God is absorbed by the seeker’s soul in the head and then internally transferred onto the heart of the seeker.

When this has happened, God addresses his own image, now in the heart of the seeker. When he goes [back down to Earth] and the live image of God is on the screen of his heart, then whoever sees him sees God.

Prophet Mohammad said, ‘Whoever has seen me, he has only seen God.’

This is the culmination in spirituality. Whether you talk about Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus or Mohammad through their religions, this was the brand of spirituality they projected to different races of humankind.

The New Spiritual Culmination

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has given a brand new concept of culmination in spirituality. It is not to do with the image of God.

This is different.

There was a Sufi Saint, Mansoor Hallaj, who developed some sort of misunderstanding in which he thought that his soul has been infused with God’s.
When this Sufi uttered those words, he was at the Station of Awe.

In spirituality, [the Station of Awe] is a state where you are at a crossroads: you lose a sense of identity and do not know who you are. In the process of the spiritual absorption [that I just explained], the reflection of the image of God that falls upon the heart gives the seeker the impression that they are now no more and that there is only God [in them]. When the seeker looks at his heart and witnesses the reflection of God’s image, he fails to distinguish between the image of God and the reflection of the image of God. He considers himself to be annihilated.

Mansoor Hallaj got stuck in the Station of Awe. This happens when one doesn’t have a proper and divinely delegated Spiritual Master. When he got stuck, he failed to distinguish between his reality and the reflection of God’s image. So he developed the impression that he is now gone and the one who lives as him is God. When people asked him,‘Who are you?’ he said ‘I am God,’ because he lost his senses. He was amalgamated by the holy smoke that was coming from the reflection of God.

For example, there are neutrons, electrons and protons. I can see before me a light, which has a kind of fog around it. This fog is the result of the electrons that are emanating from the filament. When we see things, the photons in the eye either increase or decrease. When they increase, the image become blurry and when they decrease we cannot see [anything]. The image of God is made of photons.

Mansoor Hallaj was the only one among millions of Sufis since the beginning of Islamic mysticism, who failed to distinguish between his own reality and the image of God that was inside his heart. He thought that God and his soul had, through some spiritual chemistry, become united and were now one. He was not talking about union; he was talking about spiritual integration.

Due to lack of knowledge, he was of the opinion that he had plunged into the divine river and had become part of the river. He thought that he himself was a drop in the [river] of God which completely dried up from the heat of God’s manifestation. He believed that he was now gone and he was the river now. However, this was a misunderstanding.

I mentioned this story so you can relate to what I am going to say.

Zam is Spiritual Infusion. This is new technology in spirituality. In the field of spiritual sciences, it is a new invention. You will not find this word anywhere else.

Lord Jesus Christ did mention the Spiritual Infusion that we are now projecting to the world, but when he spoke about it, it was to a private audience. Everything he said relating to his own origin, he said it very quietly. This is why the Christians who solely depend upon the knowledge that comes from Bible are not aware of the true person of Lord Jesus Christ.

[One day] while Jesus was talking to his very close disciples, Mother Mary came. Jesus must have told the disciples that a woman cannot obtain infusion with [his] soul. So one of these disciples, when he noticed Mother Mary was standing there, said to Jesus, ‘There is a woman standing here.’ Jesus replied, ‘That is not a woman.’ The impression I get from these words is that Mother Mary would have found infusion with Lord Jesus Christ and Mother Mary would not be confined to the paradise or heaven created by God. I personally believe Mother Mary would travel with Lord Jesus Christ into the Kingdom of Lord Jesus Christ.

So those who worship Mother Mary, I respect them because she belongs to the Unseen World where God comes from. Even if you worship Mother Mary, you are not committing a spiritual or religious crime. If you knew what a woman or man becomes after infusion, no one would object to worshipping her.

So what is infusion?

Infusion is mixing of your soul with God.

I must give you the example that Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi gives in order for us to understand what is infusion.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, ‘Think about tea. How many ingredients do you use? You need milk, tealeaves and sugar. Just notice what happens when tealeaves are added to the milk. The tealeaves leave their colour and milk becomes brown. After the milk is added with the colour released by the tealeaves, you cannot separate that colour from milk anymore.

‘Then you add sugar and stir it well. The sugar crystals also become part of that liquid. It becomes tea. Now, milk and sugar and tealeaves have a new identity, a new name. You cannot call it milk but milk is part of it. You cannot call it sugar but sugar is part of it. You cannot call it tealeaves, but tealeaves are part of it.’

Similarly it is not about going up to witness the presence of God with the soul of your head, taking an image of God and putting it into your heart. It is not about divine selfies anymore.

Now, you stay wherever you are. A reflection of the essence of either Lord Jesus Christ or Lord Ra Riaz reflects in you. Mind you, this reflection is different from any other. It is not the same reflection that you see when the Sun reflects on the surface of water. This reflection I am talking about is like an entity, very identical to Lord Jesus Christ and very identical to Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi. Either what you see is the reflection of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi or Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi himself; you cannot tell the difference.

This is no ordinary reflection; it is a walking, talking entity. This reflection of the Lord will enter into your body.

In Christian spirituality, this is known as Pentecost. Pentecostal means one who has the presence of the Holy Ghost. In a ‘Pentecostal Moment,’ you would think you are talking to the man, when actually you are talking to Lord Jesus Christ. However, what I am talking about is a step further ahead because that Pentecostal [Moment] is not eternal; it comes and goes.

This infusion with the reflectory entity is eternal. Spiritual Infusion is like cloning; [you become] a spiritual clone of Jesus if you are infused with Jesus. When the reflectory entity of Lord Jesus Christ has infused with your soul, it eats up your soul, just as a big fish swallows a smaller fish. Now, you are part of the Lord; you cannot say you are the Lord, but you can say you are Lord. That is how.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi says, ‘Enjoy the mangoes. Don’t ask anybody who has brought them.’

When your soul is infused with the reflectory entity of either Lord Jesus Christ or Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, you cease to be a human being. Now you can travel to the Unseen World. If people will ever see your soul, [something interesting] happens. They will see that you are going, and then a moment later they will say, ‘No, it is not [you]. It is Jesus.’ Later, they’ll see that it is you again. You’ll keep changing. It is a divine twist. When people think you are [just a man] the Lord will come in front and when people think it’s the Lord, [the man] will come in front.

You are now accepted in the Domain of God. I am not saying you are equal to any individual who comes from the Unseen World, however the condition that only God-like individuals can enter the Unseen World is removed from you; you are now exempted. If you are not God, you are not less than a God. This is Spiritual Infusion.

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)
19th December 2016|Articles

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The Key to Spirituality (and Life)

The most important thing in spirituality is to be a steadfast seeker. You should have unshakeable self-esteem. You should know what you are doing.When you know what you are doing, then do not back off until you reach your destination.

God does not like people who back off when the conditions around them are not favourable.

God wants to test how serious you are! Your determination will be established when no hurdle on Earth can stop you from what you want to get. If there are not enough hurdles to stop you, you are really determined. Determination is the name for different emotional states. For example, it refers to when you are steadfast, when you are clung to whoever you belong.

No matter how hard it gets to survive, even if you are hanging by a cliff, rest assured that you will not fall.

In the line of spiritual love, you have to have determination. The hurdles of the way will definitely [chip away at] your determination. Every time you are weakened by those hurdles, boost your determination by the fact that you belong to the Almighty and the Almighty is watching over you. Know that you are not alone.

No matter how many times you fall, do not stop. Keep falling, but keep journeying as well. Fall down, get up again and go. Repeat.

You must keep going no matter how many times you fall. The devil wants you to fall, so that you are emotionally put off and you quit the journey.

Don’t quit the journey; if you stumble, ask for help and the Lord will help you.

This was an excerpt of Younus AlGohar’s reply to a viewer of AlRa TV, who had already obtained Invocation of the Heart. It was originally posted on Younus AlGohar’s Medium page.

Why did GOHAR SHAHI Come to this World?
6th December 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Why did GOHAR SHAHI Come to this World?

Why is it so that His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi came into this world – a world created by God – and had to go through the entire human journey? Why did His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi bother to come into this world? HDE Gohar Shahi is the Grand God (Rab al Arbab): the creator of all and lord of all.

The decision that HDE Gohar Shahi made, that of coming into this world which was created by God, is the necessity. Necessity to quench the spiritual thirst of countless souls, especially the outcry of souls which remained thirsty even after they attained high class spiritual status.

They found God and they were in very proximate audience with God, as much as it was divinely possible. However, all that spiritual attainment did not suffice their spiritual thirst. They were still yearning for an extra divine, rapturous love and rapturous relation with a true deity. Those who loved God and found the way to be in his proximate audience did acquire some sort of love and nearness to God, however they were not given to know God fully.

Most things about God have always been obscure. Many things about his character and demeanour haven’t been given to discover. Exploration of God’s character and profound knowledge of the being of God became the topmost priority of those who found God. They wanted to know more about God, but there have always been restrictions.

When you love somebody, you want to know everything about them, but that is not the case with God. There is not much that you will be given to know about God. Not much is on offer by God about him.

On contrary to what he practically does, God has been recorded to have said that he created the creation so that he should be known. He loved to be known, however nobody knows him.

For millions of years, messengers and prophets who came into this world tried teaching humanity how to become obedient and submissive to God, and how to be a dedicated worshipper to God. However, they did not say anything about the character of God, love of God, the shape of God, the face of God, his demeanour or his emotional bubble. As far as my intelligence works, I understand they didn’t say much about this because they themselves don’t know much about it. [For example], when I know something, I don’t make a secret out of it. Even if I want to, my tongue and my lips become disobedient even to myself; I can’t hide it.

Proclamation of love of God is very easy. However, to obtain God’s love has always been a mystery. Whoever found God’s love, he found it through mysticism.

There is love of God and at the same time, there is rapturous love of God (an extreme form of God’s love).

It is a pity that more often than it should be, God’s love has always been considered to be attached with obedience and worship to God.

When I say, ‘Being disobedient to God,’ it simply means that you do everything which, in a religion, you are not allowed to do. When you do things you are not allowed to do, you become a sinner. So in a way, if you continue to sin – meaning that you are disobedient to God, you don’t worship God and you do not follow any religion – and still you claim to love God, nobody will [believe you].

Love is real, however, love has been hidden under thick layers of newly fabricated Islamic/Quranic mythology.  [People say], ‘Look at him. He doesn’t even go to the mosque. He is a sinner and he claims to love God, come on.’ This is their attitude. If you ask an Islamic scholar of today, ‘Moulana, tell me how do you love God?’ he will have no answer.

I did not know what is love. The only battlefield which has been given to [men] upon which they can practise love is a woman. Before [people started openly loving members of the same sex] men used to love women and women used to love men. At one point in time, about 15-20 years ago, I used to think that love is a taboo thing. In my house and family, we couldn’t even say the word love. This was because, in Pakistani society where Islamic Sharia was strictly, mysteriously followed, you would only talk about worship, recitation of the Quran, growing a beard and fasting in the holy month of Ramadan. When a beautiful girl passed by, you were supposed to lower your gaze – and we did that. Every time a beautiful woman would pass by, we would force ourselves to at least lower our eyes, but still the heart would think about her. As long as I lived in Pakistan, I was not able to grasp the meaning of God’s love.

The first time we heard about God’s love was from HDE Gohar Shahi.

In the late 1990’s, HDE Gohar Shahi was visiting Bangladesh. His Divine Eminence stayed at somebody’s house; that person was a very strict Muslim who asked HDE Gohar Shahi, ‘We never heard of God’s love. [We have been told to] go to a mosque, offer prayers five times a day, serve your parents; through the Halal way, earn your bread and butter for your children – and that’s it. Worship should be enough. What is love?’

His Divine Eminence said to him, ‘Alright. [Imagine that] your wife cooks food for you every day, washes your clothes every day, takes care of you day and night and raises your children. She does everything, but if she said to you that she loved somebody else, would you be happy for the services she provided you with?’

He said, ‘No.’

HDE Gohar Shahi said, ‘You want to worship God. The moment God finds out that you love somebody else, that worship will be thrown at your face by God. This is how important it is to love God.’

It is true. If your wife does everything but she doesn’t love you, that is the end of the story. She washed your clothes, cooked food for you, raised your children and did every service to comfort you and please you; but the moment you heard she didn’t love you, every type of service went down the drain. Similarly, you can be doing anything to please God but the moment God finds out you love someone else, no worship will be acceptable in the eyes of God. This is how important it is for you to love God.

The irony is that we have heard about God’s love, but nobody tells us how to love God.

Although Jesus talked about God’s love, no messenger or prophet taught human beings the procedure through which one can truly love God.

Muslims believe that Prophet Mohammad is the leader of all prophets and that he is the best prophet. So what Prophet Mohammad said is the bottom line [for them]. Knowing God couldn’t be easier than what Prophet Mohammad told people. According to the Quran, about God’s love, there is no procedure given to human beings with the help of which they can attain God’s love. However, if you wanted to love God, all you need to do as prescribed by the Quran is to follow and spiritually imitate the Prophet Mohammad.

‘Tell them, “If they want to love God, follow me, imitate me.” In return, I will love them.’ – Quran 3:31

Imitate here has a spiritual connotation. Imitate doesn’t mean mimicry; it means to spiritually follow, do as he says and do as he asks you to do. Do not as he does.

All you have in the Quran is that you follow Prophet Mohammad and in return, God will love you. However, that is one-way traffic. How many people successfully followed Prophet Mohammad and imitated him spiritually? If somebody did, even then they do not have the procedure to love God. As a result of the fact that you follow Prophet Mohammad, in return, God will love you. But still you don’t love God; God will love you.

So no religion tells us the secretive procedure that will allow you to be able to love God. God had sent 124 000 different prophets and messengers already. Prophet Mohammad was the last of all the prophets and messengers. So God has tried his best but even after the last prophet, Prophet Mohammad, humanity is still struggling and they do not know how to love God.

There was a sense of necessity for the Grand God to enter into this world and tell humanity the procedure which will set you free from requiring to follow any prophet or messenger.

If the procedure of love was to be attained by a messenger or prophet, then it would have been [obtained] from Prophet Mohammad who was the last prophet. However, even Prophet Mohammad did not render the procedure of attaining love. Now, all the prophets have been sent. Even the grandeur of all prophethood and messengerhood, Prophet Mohammad, is back in the pavilion. When the last and best of all prophets did not give us the procedure to attain God’s love, who else do you think will give us the procedure of love?

Now was time for either God to come upon Earth and teach humanity the methodology of loving God. Or if he doesn’t want to come, then somebody who is even more passionate about human beings obtaining God’s love should come.

Maybe God didn’t care, but HDE Gohar Shahi has shown us that he cares.

He didn’t care for what people will think of him to be, but he cared for us. He is here and now we know what the procedure is of obtaining God’s love.

The place of love is your heart and your heart is ruled by a dedicated soul. You need to awaken that dedicated soul; the moment it is awakened, your heart will begin to have the spiritual faculty which will bring you closer to God. That spiritual faculty will connect you with God and will make your heart a true recipient of God’s light and theophanies. This is how you will obtain God’s love.

This was a necessity. It didn’t happen even after all the messengers and prophets have been sent. God doesn’t want to come, but God had already announced that in the end, the Religion of God will be established. Prophet Mohammad had already left 1400 years ago. The Religion of God had still not been established; God doesn’t want to come so who else will come and establish love?

What HDE Gohar Shahi is doing was not possible for any messenger or prophet. This is why it never happened. It is now happening because HDE Gohar Shahi is here.

The Final Revolution
27th November 2016|Articles

The Final Revolution

The Final Revolution

Spirituality is accepted among all religions. However, every spiritual league of people seems to have a different perception about spirituality. Why do people who reject religions, adopt spirituality?

I have attended mind and body expos in many different countries of the world, including the USA, Canada, Holland, United Kingdom, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. I have met with thousands of people and spoken to many individuals who call themselves spiritualists.

The United States of America is a pioneer country in many fields. For example, there are many international American fast food chains such as KFC, TGI Fridays, Applebee’s, Chili’s and Pizza Hut. These companies made a fortune selling processed food.

American society got tired of eating processed foods. They grew bigger in size, so then [began] the trend of eating organic food. When they started getting bigger, they started exercising and thus gym goers began increasing in number.

Then spirituality was introduced and people fell for it. Many dozens of Hindu gurus came from India and they started to give lectures on spirituality. At the same time, they started to sell ‘spiritual’ products. For example, ‘Yogi Tea,’ which has nothing to do with yoga. A message was given by these spiritualists: for inner peace, peace of mind and relaxation, adopt spirituality. Yoga was declared to be a spiritual practice.

When I learnt about it, I was shocked. For the first time in my life, I was able to distinguish between this version of spirituality that I encountered in Edmonton, Canada. I sat down there in that expo booth and I wrote an article.

God is completely forgotten in this brand of spirituality. A deceptive concept has been hammered into the brains of innocent people in America. [They were told], ‘Your ego is your God. Take care of your ego and love yourself.’ There was no space for God.

I am not speaking in favour of any religion.

When Lord Jesus Christ publicly appears before everybody and wants a group of people to count on [to] go for Armageddon and defeat the Antichrist, will any of these spiritualists recognise and help Jesus?

I was shocked when Christians came to me and said, ‘We thought you were a spiritualist, but you are a religious man.’

I replied ‘How?’

They said, ‘You have the image of Lord Jesus Christ.’

I said, ‘So what?’

They said, ‘Jesus represents a religion, we don’t believe in any religion.’

I thought that there is a huge acceptance of spirituality among these people, but when I learnt what spirituality they have in mind, I was disturbed because with this concept of spirituality, they are not going to be able to love Jesus Christ.

With this brand of spirituality they will never seek God, let alone loving God.

The gurus who came from India have played havoc with the minds of people. Under the label of spirituality, there have been sexual scandals. It is not a secret anymore. Sexuality was labelled as spirituality.

When we started to tell people what spirituality really is, they were surprised to a degree where they were in a state of confusion [as to whether to believe us, or what they were told by the gurus from India].

We practise, propagate and project the purest form of spirituality.

We understand that, as the root word of spirituality is ‘spirit’, therefore, spirituality is to do with the awakening, enlightenment and purgation of the spirits.

Meditation is not about visualising a garden or visualising yourself flying. Meditation is a spiritual state in which your spirit is powerful enough to leave the body and make a spiritual journey; it is when it can successfully arrive at the realm where it belongs.

Upon these spiritual lines, one can be able to enter into the Kingdom of God.

The Kingdom of God is not a building or a city. The Kingdom of God is inside you. Your heart is the temple of God and this is where the Kingdom will be established. This is where the King will come and sit in your heart.

The Revolution of Love

Prophet Mohammad said, ‘Towards the end times, the Sun will rise from the West.’

Like many other traditions of the Prophet Mohammad, the Muslims took it the wrong way. They are literally waiting for the Sun to rise from Seattle, USA, rather than Japan. This Prophetic Tradition is not about the [physical] Sun; it is about the Sun of God’s love, the Sun of spirituality — and it is rising!

The world has seen many different types of revolutions: communism, socialism, industrialism and capitalism. Now humanity is becoming weary of all these different types of slogans. Capitalism has manifested its ugliness and beauty. Communism has been rejected widely all over the world. Industrialism gave rise to capitalism, but the most horrible gift it gave was global warming [and pollution].

The world has seen all different types of revolutions and is now suffering in divisions. What humanity needs now is a final revolution: the revolution of love, the revolution of spirituality in which all the importance will be given to human beings.

With the help of science, we have gadgets such as iPhones and cameras. However, the ugliness of a human being remains the same.

Human beings have not progressed an inch. What we have worked on is our surroundings and the instruments we use.

Although we fly aeroplanes, we cannot fly. You combine Metal, gas and fuel and make an aeroplane that flies. However, you are greater than those ingredients you combined to make the aeroplane. You are a human being and you are the best of all creatures, so why can’t you fly?

You invented the telescope, but never worked on your eyes.

You have souls inside you, specially dedicated to improving your sight. With that improvement in your sight through spirituality, you won’t only be able to see the Moon or Mars, but you will be able to see God beyond this sky, the Milky Way, the realms and all these planets.

This is how far you can see with the help of the spiritual eye.

Now is the time to discover your obscure calibre. Now is the time to explore the divine potentials and credentials in you.

Explore yourself and know what capabilities have you been endowed by God. If you utilise all the spiritual potentials conferred onto you by God, you will understand one day that, ‘I am just a little lesser than God.’

You are in the State of Oblivion. You have ignored your own self and given more attention and importance to what is around you. What could you be if all the credentials God has conferred on you are utilised the right way? In order to do all this, we need a spiritual revolution.

This is why Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and Lord Jesus Christ have joined hands. Together, Lord Jesus and Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi will bring about this unprecedented, pioneering, rapturous, and amiable revolution of love.

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?
17th November 2016|Articles

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

Are We Living in a Computer-Simulated Universe and Are There Other Universes?

‘Mr Younus, Elon Musk said that there is a chance that we are living in a computer simulation. Are we? And are there multiple universes?’ — Mir Shahmir

It is a very delicate point. The world or the universe itself is not simulated by a computer. However, with the help of computer science, we can do a lot of things.

In a sense, science and technology have advanced to a degree where you can do things which may appear to be a miracle.

For example, we now have test-tube babies. If a woman doesn’t want to marry or touch a man, but she wants a baby, [she can have it by in vitro fertilisation]. She could take sperm from a donor, which could be injected into her body. This is what people can do today.

Science has advanced to a degree now where scientists are trying to outclass God.

It is a proven fact: even in the past, whenever — with the help of science, technology and whatever knowledge they had — human beings tried to interfere with the acts of God, God destroyed them.

There is a story about ancient Greek people in the Holy Book, The Religion of God (Divine Love). God commanded Gabriel to go and destroy them by flooding, so they quickly made walls of glass. They were saved because they were able to hear God. So then God asked Gabriel to destroy them by stoning. The glass was broken by the stones and they were destroyed.

You can’t play smart with God because he has all the power.

This intellect you have reflects God’s intelligence. So you may conclude that whatever you think, God will think along the same line. What you have in your head as intellect, it reflects the divine intellect.

People are now trying to interfere with God and his acts.

For example, let’s talk about cloning. The thing is, scientists can do anything, but what about the soul inside it? Obviously, as a result of that cloning process, there will be a living being identical [to the original], and that living being will definitely have terrestrial souls. However, there will not be any celestial souls, which will mean that the clone will not have the same level of intelligence as [the original has].* It will be deprived of emotions — hatred, love and everything else. What is the use of producing such a thing which is incapable of many human traits?

People are trying to be smarter than God, however they can never be. God is a genius as compared to us. We think he is a genius because he can do things we cannot. It is not possible for someone created by God to be [smarter than him]; if you were created by God, God would not give you the same level of intelligence he possesses himself. If somebody has more intelligence than God has, then that somebody must be from the Unseen World.

The way His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi reveals secrets pertaining to the creation of this universe, to the creation of humankind, to the different species of Adam, to the different levels of intellectuality and to the different levels of spirituality — it is mind-boggling.

Revealing upon human beings what has been kept hidden by God and then declaring them to be the most obscure secrets of God — this can only come from HDE Gohar Shahi.

By far, HDE Gohar Shahi has exhibited through His acts and practice of love that whatever level of intelligence He has exhibited is far greater than the core intelligence of God.

This universe is simulated by a computer to a certain degree. But if you become divine and enlightened, you move your fingers and you will move mountains.

Forget about computer simulation. When you become a humble servant of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, then you will simulate the world with your finger.

Multiple Universes

For the sake of answering your question, I will say, ‘Yes there are many different types of universe.’ But then again, you’re not able to practically go and witness it, so what is the point in discussing it? Unless you’re planning to apply to HDE Gohar Shahi to become His servant — because only then can you possibly witness existence of other types of universe.

We’re living on a single little planet, Earth, and we do not intend to explore every single planet that is floating in this universe. We have not been given the potential of migrating from one planet to another. Man set his foot on the Moon only after the Final Hour, when all the living beings on the Moon were destroyed by God. As long as people lived there, human beings who lived on this planet were not able to go and witness their counterparts [on the Moon].

We can only fly from Pakistan to India, India to Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka to America, Canada, Australia etc. We cannot possibly migrate from one planet to another, especially the planets which are currently inhabited by human beings like ourselves. The planet we are living on is not a secure place. Countries of this planet only think of their own safety. However [other] planets have been made secure but their inhabitants.

Migration from one universe to another is not physically possible for you. I am not saying that it is not physically possible at all; it is possible provided you have the means of travel and ability to switch from your type of oxygen to their type of oxygen. But you don’t have this facility and ability.

On this planet, water is made of two molecules of hydrogen and one molecule of oxygen. Maybe [on another planet], there are three molecules hydrogen with oxygen which forms water. The chemical equation of our water is H2O; maybe on Mars, it is H3O.

It is interesting that the Sun is the ultimate source of hydrogen; the Sun is shining on the seas and rivers. Even then, the water does not absorb more than two molecules of hydrogen from the sun-rays. This is because the oxygen of this world has only two ports of radicals; maybe oxygen [of another planet] is different and has four ports of radicals.

This universe is vast and it is such a shame that you cannot travel. Some people are born in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan; they live all their lives in those countries and they die. There are still some people in India and Pakistan haven’t seen a train, let alone traveling in an airplane. We live in the United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, etc. even then, I never imagined myself traveling in a spaceship and going to the Moon.

Hopping into other universes is least possible even to imagine. However [things change] when you are a disciple of HDE Gohar Shahi. Firstly, you do not become a disciple by simply saying that you want to or [paying a fee].

You become HDE Gohar Shahi’s disciple when your soul is infused with HDE Gohar Shahi and you become a citizen of the extra-celestial Unseen World. That is the culmination of all that exists. When you reach the culmination of all that exists today, then migrating from one universe to another is child’s play.

When you reach the culmination of the farthest place that can exist — something you can’t even imagine — then migration from one universe to another is not a problem. Right now, you are caged by gravitational force. As a result of gravity, you can’t go anywhere. Speed is the resistance against gravity. You apply force and power; then you [move]. What happens when you go into space? There is no gravity; [so if] you don’t apply force, you just float.

Let me just end it on this note: it is possible to simulate the universe partially with the help of a [scientifically advanced] computer, but it would not be a full throttle simulation. Secondly, there are different types of universe — but then, seeing is believing. I can tell you many things, but if you’re not able to witness it, it is like fiction to you.

If you become worthy spiritually, you can travel from one universe to another. However, do not forget: the Quran has mentioned that whatever is between the skies and earth belongs to God; so God is only talking about this universe. It will [probably] never happen — but for the sake of answering your question, if you happen to set your foot in another universe, do not forget that that universe has a different creator.

Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister of India, not the entire world. The United Kingdom has a different Prime Minister. When you go to Canada, they have a different Prime Minister. When you set your foot in another universe, you’ll have to find out who its creator is.

There are different types of universe but all these different planets in this universe were created by God. Quran 4:131 states, ‘To God belongs whatever is between the land and skies.’ This is about this particular universe that we are living in.

*According to the teachings of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, a human being is a compound creature made up of multiple spirits. The body is made of terrestrial souls which are responsible for things like its growth and appearance. The terrestrial souls have nothing to do with the higher realms.

What makes humanity different from animals is the presence of the celestial souls in them, which bring in them human emotions and sense. The celestial souls are what give man the potential to discover divinity. Learn all about the celestial spirits in The Religion of God (Divine Love) by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.
