Self-Awareness Level 2, Lesson 4: Optimising Your IQ

Self-Awareness Level 2, Lesson 4: Optimising Your IQ

Editor’s note: the following is the fourth 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. 

Read Self-Awareness, Level 2, Lesson 3 here.

How many human beings out of millions of people out there want to study themselves, want to study how emotions value themselves in our life; how emotionally do we go wrong and how our own emotions play with us and our mind? Due to the fact that we don’t have enough knowledge of our own self [and others around us], we never get to know our own emotions and feelings, the right conduct that we must carry; our demeanour, boundaries, our liberties and then liberties and boundaries of others. We take it for granted.

Our life is messed up because don’t know anything about ourselves. We don’t know how emotions work. We don’t know how emotionally we are charged up, and sometimes feeling very lowly emotionally. The discerning experts on this subject lack a lot in what they describe as emotional intelligence. The description of emotional intelligence that I put forward in front of you is not based on what people study in the universities. My discourses on these subjects come from a divine source: His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

Emotions are like untamed vibes or they are waves of the ocean. Emotions move our entire being from one point to another. We are just going with the flow. With the ups and downs of emotions. We have no control. Although we say to ourselves ‘I am a very strong man’, but our strength is only deceptive. We are just fooling ourselves.

Emotional Complexes

When emotions hit you, no matter how strong you are, you will cry like a baby. You do not want to get entrapped in any of the emotional complexes.

There are mainly two complexes: a complex of being superior and a complex of being inferior.

Now the question is why do some people suffer from a superiority complex and others from an inferiority complex? Psychology doesn’t have the answer to this. But those who have a very strong ego, more often, they are the ones who get entrapped by the complex of superiority.

We are going to see how our emotions shape up to form a complex. A complex is a set of more than one thing. Our emotions: feelings of joy when we achieve something, feelings of sorrow and sadness when we fail. Some people when they fail, they don’t simply have feelings of sorrow; they have this strange feeling of rejection. If they fail again, the emotional trauma that they go through doubles the pain and sorrow. When they fail for the third time, all the pain, all the sadness, sorrow and the feelings of rejection get muddled up and form a complex. This complex, oftentimes, is duly aided by depression.

Those who suffer from superiority complex – don’t think they are always happy, they’re not happy. Their superiority depends on phraseology only. They are just chatterboxes. When they speak they’ll say they’re better than you, but inside they know they’re messed up.

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi said, ‘Neither superiority complex is good for you nor inferiority complex is good for you.’

Then what should you do? HDE enquires us to be as we are. When we do good, say thank you. When we do bad; sorry, I won’t repeat the mistake. This is the reality.

Emotional complexes, as I assume, are fantasies. We are just thinking. Sometimes you are good, but you think you are bad. You know why you are bad? Because you are declaring yourself bad without even calculating your bad things. You assume you are bad and you enforce it upon you.

Optimising Intelligence

God has given everybody equal intelligence.

I have seen the movie ‘Lucy’ – Nobody’s brain works more than 15%-20%. If your brain starts to work 25% you will leave all the scientists behind. But they do not know how to increase the ability of the brain to its optimum. [In the movie] they use a special green liquid which releases into the womb of the mother when the baby is growing inside the stomach called CPH4, if that substance is inserted into your body it will multiply the cells in the brain. Maybe that will work 25%. If your brain works more than 20%, you can control everything with your mind.

When I was in school I learnt hypnotism. What you need to do is either absorb the blue light in the candle or look at the sun without blinking for five minutes, then gradually increase the time, the duration. I used to look at the sun without blinking for at least two hours. After that, if I would concentrate on a glass, I would break it. If I concentrate on your brain, I can make you do anything. This is when your brain is working in small digits in comparison to others. If your brain works 20%, you will become a saint of God. So much power is given to you! 

Why is the brain not working at its optimum? Because there are three layers on the soul of the brain, the Subtlety of Ana. If your Ana is enlightened and you have seen God your brain works at 100%. [Those who reach this stage] have to control [themselves] by doing stupid things. They know things but it is difficult for them to behave like a normal person. While they try to behave like a normal person they always make mistakes and people think they are stupid.

So, do not think you are bad. Do not think you are lower than anybody. God has given all of you the same optimum in everything you have been given, for except your access to him. 

Access to God depends on how much nearness he wants to grant you. You cannot be nearer to God more than God desires you to be. It is all up to him. However, as long as the ability of your physical organs is concerned, you are all equal. All you need to do is charge up or awaken those extra senses that you have been granted by God. 

The complex that you are inferior or superior to somebody is just a mind game. It comes from the society. It comes from the classes of society. There are systems of classes in different countries. Here, we have social classes. For example, somebody from a working class works at McDonald’s, we can understand he doesn’t have enough resources to go to university and acquire higher education, therefore his level of understanding of life is lower than those who have been granted a prestigious lifestyle. They have been less fortunate in relation to having access to an abundance of money and opportunities to them.

These divisions and classes are the results of inabilities and incapacities; sometimes mental incapacity and most of the time financial incapacity. But then, [you are only using] 20% of your brain. No human being on earth can cross over 20% usage of the brain. After 20% there is a layer placed by God.

However, once you have seen God, that layer is removed. Then, forget about spirituality, if you only use your brain you can control the entire world. Honestly.

Before you reach that level in spirituality where your brain has extended its capacity to 100% – reaches its optimum – God wants to churn you. [He wants you] to go through the process of self-denial so that, in the end, when you discover this divine treasure, you don’t own it. You simply say, ‘This is with the blessings of the Lord. I am a piece of shit.’ You go through this divinely imposed cycle of negation and self-denial. God wants to make sure that there is nothing left of you in you when this treasure is finally opened up. This is why when people have this ability, they sit there and look stupid. You suspect them [and think] had he had this much power, he wouldn’t be sitting here stupidly.

For example, you are starving; no food to eat, no place to go to, you can’t even buy a loaf of bread and you say,’ I have billions of dollars in my pocket’. We will not believe you. Why?  Our intellect has only seen a few patterns of emotions. [We will think] if he had the money why would he be starving? These are the patterns of emotions life shows us.

Divine Light

What is light? Light consists of photons. There is a body of photons and there is a soul of photons. The body of photons is what we see and the soul of photons is divine energy that goes in the heart. When the divine energy reaches the heart; the moment it is completely energised there is a big bang, like your skull has been cracked open. That is the sound of the eruption of energy, not the skull. Then, the third eye opens up.

After this, you will have two windows in front of your eyes: the exterior and interior of people. What they say and what they have in their heart; you can see both at the same time.

This complex of emotions has to be steered in the right way and that right way is being grateful to the Lord. Do not attribute any goodness to yourself. Because what is in you now has come from God; it is the attribute of God. So you must attribute all the goodness in you to God. Our emotions should be based on this. All our emotions should always be based on this line that any goodness that we have today is from our Lord. When you have this emotion, you are successful. 

Superiority and Inferiority Complexes

Point to be noted: sometimes you do not suffer from any complex. If you are doing the right thing and everybody around you is incorrect; you think people should follow you. This is a balanced thought. There is nothing wrong with this. There is no ego and superiority involved in it. It is a simple matter of discipline. However, people will steer your attention to a misguided direction and say you are being egoistic. These are negative things that come from those who do not want to correct themselves, rather they put the blame on others.

We don’t understand what these complexes are. Maybe somebody who suffers from superiority complex is humble and maybe somebody who is suffering from inferiority complex is arrogant.

These complexes are about the thoughts; either complex can become a deterrent for you to learn further. If you suffer from superiority complex it is like you shut the door on yourself, ‘I cannot learn anything else, [I have all the knowledge]’. If you suffer from inferiority complex, you shut the door: ‘I am not able to learn anything’. The result is the same! Therefore, both complexes are bad. 

You have to live a real life, don’t live in fantasies or dreams. Even before the creation of computers, a majority of people lived in the virtual world; the world of dreams. People set a desired list and they call that list of luxury their dream. They live all their life in pursuit of that desired list of luxury. When it doesn’t happen they plunge into the pond of inferiority complex. And if by mistake they get even half of what they have desired, they plunge into a superiority complex.

Live a realistic life. Be a realistic person. Forget about plans. Live for today; but don’t think about today, think about tomorrow. Be ambitious but not over ambitious.

Emotional Wellbeing

Our emotions are often less complex than we imagine them to be. Most people think that the things that have hurt you are what cause you to experience emotional pain, and in order to heal and experience real happiness you must resolve those old wounds. The reality, however, is somewhat different.

You can only feel emotions, including the painful ones, in the present moment. And what you feel in the present moment is determined by what you give your attention to. Nothing can hurt you unless you give it your attention. Most people can make themselves cry in just a few minutes by simply pulling up a vivid memory of something that was, at that time, painful. So why would you give your attention to things that cause pain?

If you think about the painful memory in life and you are actually concentrating on it, you are indulging in the luxury of pain, I think you yourself are to blame for it. Avoid thinking about the painful memories of life.

Some negative events can hold your attention. You perceive them to be a threat. Most people who ruminate on a negative past are simply unaware that they are doing it and there is no choice in the matter. Things you are unaware of are outside your control. Learning how to become aware of what you are paying attention to and how to shift your attention to something to make you feel better is one of the most powerful tools. This is for improving your emotional wellbeing.

Some people are in the pursuit of happiness. But they don’t know how to control their emotions. Some people want happiness but they don’t know what happiness is. Some people think happiness is all about having money and luxury. No. The nature of happiness differs from one person to another.

What we think and what we feel is determined by what we pay attention to. Not only do we have the ability to shift our attention away from painful things and give our attention to more pleasant thoughts or memories. As we do this, it inhibits our ability to think about the unpleasant painful things.

This happens because attention works on an activation/inhibition model: if you are paying attention to negative things it will almost take away the ability from you to think about the positive. You can either think negative or positive. You can’t be negative and positive at the same time. That’s why psychologists often say that people with depression see a more depressed world. The more you start to give your attention to things that feel good and start to see a more positive world, over time you will find yourself noticing fewer of the negatives in life.

Once you are aware you can do it, shifting your attention is something on which you can exert complete control. You can choose what you want to pay attention to and as a result, you can choose how you want to feel. For example, if you say to yourself, ‘I want to feel good today’ and you do not pay attention to negativity around you, you will feel better.

Try this with a friend: The next time you are talking to someone who is telling you about something negative happening to them, ask them to tell you about some positive experience instead. Then, notice the change in their facial expressions. When people start to talk about positive events that feel good, they start to smile; it is an almost involuntary reaction.

Does that sound too easy? Here is a tip that will make it even easier:

There are only two things in life that you can pay attention to that cause you to experience emotion: things you want and things you don’t want. Every single thing that you can think of that causes any type of significant emotion can be sorted into one of those two categories. Breakups, job loss, betrayal, the death of a loved one — all things you don’t want. Pets, best friends, birthday parties, getting a raise — all things you do want. You will always know when you are giving your attention to things that you don’t want in life; your emotions will tell you. Paying attention to things you don’t want generates negative emotions.

Sometimes we think about our past, we think about people that we did not want to associate with. We want to follow up with them, like what they are doing, what’s happening [in their life]? It’s painful, isn’t it? We should only pay attention to positive things in our life.

One of the most self-sabotaging things that people can give their attention to is an unwanted future.

Nothing in the future has actually happened, yet many people spend a good deal of their time experiencing negative emotions like anxiety, fear, and self-doubt because they are giving their attention to things they don’t want to occur. Doing this not only robs them of their present-moment happiness, but also prevents them from thinking about the positive experiences they could be creating in their future instead.

Our attention is the gateway to what we experience in life. Your attention is precious.

We should not give our attention to things or people who don’t deserve it rather they give us pain. You need to treasure your attention like it is something really unique. Your attention is your life. You cannot spend your life [focusing on the negative]. Your attention is very precious. Only apply your attentions to things that need your attention and it will be fruitful for you in life to put a smile on your face.

‘Learning to notice what you are paying attention to, and how to redirect your attention to things you want can change not only your current experience but also the life you create for yourself going forward.’

Mankind’s Rise to Eminence
29th April 2017|Articles

Mankind’s Rise to Eminence

Mankind’s Rise to Eminence

How extra-celestial beings changed the course of human history.

There are three periods in human history. In the religious circles, it is commonly believed that in total, God sent 124 000 different messengers and prophets. Out of them, 14 000 were only Adams. In the theosophical circles of Abrahamic faiths – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – the scholars understand that there was only one Adam, but they do not know how to justify it.

The First Period: The Adams

Now we’re living in the scientific era. We never had the type of transportation that we have today in the past. We have aeroplanes, motorised boats, etc. We can now travel by sea, air and land. Everything has become so advanced and travelling has become so easy and comfortable. However, in the olden times, travelling was a nightmare.

Christopher Fernandez was a Spanish, Christian leader. He sent a man called Christopher Columbus on a journey. The idea was to discover a land where they could establish a Christian kingdom. Spain comes from the word ‘Usman’ which we call ‘Ottoman’ in English. The words ‘España (Spain)’ and ‘Hispanic’ are derived from it. Christopher Columbus was able to make a boat with an automatic motor and go far out into the sea.

He was looking for any barren land when he arrived at the soil that we call the United States of America today. The only people he bumped into there were the Native Americans. Because they had dark complexions, he thought that perhaps they were Indians, so he thought that he arrived in India. He was the first to arrive from across the Atlantic, but people still lived in America before he arrived.

If it was only one Adam who came, then it would become a mystery how the progeny of one Adam dispersed itself and scattered into so many different islands and remote places of this world. Some people live in the mountains, in igloos; their nature and culture are different.

So there was not just one Adam; 14 000 Adams were sent. Human beings have inhabited this world for millions and millions of years. For that enormously long period of time, God had only seen people who would worship him in their worship places. These people did not know anything about God’s love or the existence of celestial realms where, other than them, different types of creatures inhabit.

In terms of knowledge and understanding of the cosmos, their intelligence was zero. They couldn’t think of anybody else for except themselves. Even today, we do believe there are angels and genies, but we haven’t seen them with our naked eyes. A majority of people haven’t seen angels walking [in the world]. However, we believe it because we have been told of their existence by trustworthy individuals [that we know to be saints of God].

So for as long as the common man existed in this world, who didn’t know about divine love, God had been experimenting [with] different species of humankind. He made many different types of human beings. Sometimes, he would change the colour of their skin. Sometimes, he would change their height. However, the culture of hatred was pretty much persistent. Their hateful culture of killing each other never perished.

In the end, maybe 6500 years ago – that is pretty close in comparison to millions of years since the inhabitation of humankind on Planet Earth – God, as it has come to our knowledge, got bored with the kind of worship and culture that human beings carried for that long. Then he decided that now was the time for him to upgrade human beings in character and in spirituality.

Prophets who gave the world an insight into the future – which we normally call prophecies – these kinds of prophets were not there in the era [pre-existing the last Adam]. The first time a prophet was introduced in this world with the ability to foretell the future was only 6500 years ago.

Before that period of time, the human heart and soul were barren. There was no sign of spiritual cultivation because there was no seed of love. So they lived in complete oblivion and darkness of ignorance.

They lived in ignorance about themselves, God and the cosmos. They didn’t know anything about their surroundings or the sky; they didn’t know anything about any extra-terrestrial, celestial or extra-celestial realm.

Then, about 6500 years ago, God decided to open up a little and allow human beings to be in contact with the other side of the world for the first time in human history. That was a wonderful mark of the divine exuberance and excellence.

Whoever was able to obtain this type of knowledge and be in contact with the other side of the world must have felt very lucky and [excited]. Such people must have felt privileged because they never heard that any human being could be in contact with the other side of the world.

Then came this radicalised message: love God. Don’t forget that for many million years, nobody heard such a message. It took them by storm.

They would say, ‘You don’t even see God and you want to love him? How?’ That was the very first divine inspiration. Before this, they would only go to worship places and [pay homage to their respective forms] of God, because they didn’t know anything.

The Second Period: The Last Adam

Then the last Adam, ‘Adam the Eminent One’, came. The first thing which was almost impossible for [people] to digest spiritually was to relate to the last Adam who was created in Paradise and then descended onto Earth. He was different in nature, character and complexion from them; even the nutrients he would eat [were different]. The initial thought that crossed their minds was, ‘He came from above the skies. He must be a son of God.’

Now, when we talk about the first divinely ordained and anointed Adam, with the knowledge of eminence – the knowledge of spirituality which connects man with God – we involuntarily assume that every single person in that era of Adam was blessed with this knowledge. This is where we go wrong.

Not even in the era of Abraham was everybody blessed with his presence, love and the knowledge he was parting with. After Abraham, Moses came; he was a Grand Messenger with the divine majesty hovering around his face. [However,] not even in the era of Moses was everybody blessed with that knowledge.

Then came Jesus. Jesus is a little different in that he was only given 33 months of ministry. Do not forget: other prophets and messengers spent years and years [spreading their message]. Adam lived for 931 years, Abraham was over 125 and Moses spent a lot of time among people. Jesus’s ministry did not even last three years.

Muslims talk about the grandsons of Prophet Mohammad; they commemorate their sorrow and how brutally they were killed in Iraq. They talk about the torment they went through of thirst, hunger and fear. However, nobody – not even Christians – talks about the turmoil and hardship Jesus had to face.

Firstly, Jesus didn’t have a house, a bed or pillow. He had no building to call his home. He did not enjoy anything that belongs to this world. This was the quality of his self-imposed austerity. He used to say that he was on a divine mission and he wasn’t here to enjoy life. He did not like this life because he is immortal.

When Jesus came to this world, he would open his mouth and the breath of eternal life would [disperse]. He talked about the Kingdom of God, spiritual infusion, the Unseen World and he talked about the Father. He talked about real, rapturous love. However, there were only a few who were [ready to become] recipients. There were only a few disciples who were really close to Lord Jesus Christ. One of them was Thomas. If you study the Gospel of Thomas, you would come to know of the knowledge I talk about: the Unseen World.

He said, ‘I am the alpha and omega. I am the light of the world.’ [Revelations 1:8; John 8:12] The Koran said, ‘God is the light of the world.’ [Koran 24:35]

Tell me: is this the son of God or God himself because Jesus said what God says about himself in the Koran.

The blind would come to him; he would blow upon their faces and their eyesight would be restored. He would blow upon people who were not able to walk [and heal them]. When they were healed, they would want to pay their homage to Lord Jesus Christ. They would say, ‘You have done a favour [upon us].’ He would reply, ‘No, I haven’t done a favour yet.’

He said, ‘This is not a favour. If you were not able to see this world and now you can, this is not a favour – because you are still blind. When you see things in this world, it doesn’t benefit you. How can this be a favour? I will do to you a favour when your inner eye is open. What you will see with the inner eye is what will benefit you.’

One day, he stood in front of many different people. Some of them were the followers of the religion of Adam, some others were the followers of Abraham and some others were followers of Moses. He said to them, ‘Come to me. Adam, Moses and Abraham were not worthy.’ They didn’t like it. They took it as a blasphemy. They would ask him, ‘Who are you to say such a thing?’ His reply would be, ‘Don’t ask me. Ask the one who sent me.’

Jesus clearly said, ‘I am the only way to the Father. You only reach through the Father through me.’ [John 14:6]

What Jesus talked about was mind-boggling. In front of him were people who didn’t know who they were sitting with. They didn’t know that the person who was standing in front of them was not a man. It is a gross injustice if you know Jesus as a son of man.

A man is known by his character, not by his family lineage. Your ancestral history doesn’t reveal anything about you.

Jesus was a favour upon mankind. [However], you can count the number of people who were blessed by him. They were seven in number, who were sent by Jesus to seek asylum in caves. They fell asleep and have been there for the past 2000 years. Now they’re back with Jesus.

After Jesus came Prophet Mohammad. When Prophet Mohammad came into this world, he was equipped with the spiritual knowledge which would allow people to see God. With his help, many people were able [to reach the audience of God].

In the span of 5000 years, God was done with the exhibition of his power; he was done with the exhibition of his knowledge of eminence.

It is no wonder that he didn’t do anything for the many million years prior to [the creation of Adam the Eminent One]. When he started to reveal about himself, little by little, it only took 5000 years for him to be done. In this span of time, all the Grand Messengers had been sent. All the knowledge was sent, starting from the articulation of God’s name in the heartbeats and coming to an end with the ability to see God and enter into a physical meeting with God. That is the culmination, the peak.

Now, you shouldn’t ask God to send somebody else, because he is done! [He has nothing else to offer].

The Final Period: The Awaited Ones

When I was in Pakistan, somebody asked me, ‘Why has the image of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has appeared on the surface of the Moon? Why not the image of Prophet Mohammad?’ I replied, ‘Why? If Prophet Mohammad’s image appeared on the Moon, what would you receive as a spiritual benefit from that image? He is not here.’ It is impossible.

Then somebody sent me a question, ‘You say that your Gohar Shahi will return to this world. Why can’t Prophet Mohammad return?’ But if Prophet Mohammad were to return, what would he do? He has already done everything he could have done.

Immigration in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia have been taken over by the US’s Homeland Security. [These countries] cannot tackle the upfront threats, so Homeland Security is taking care of their immigration. Similarly, God is done. Now the Gohar and Jesus team from the Unseen World has taken over.

First, it was Jesus who talked about the Unseen world. Then His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi came into this world and opened up the chapter [and talked about the secrets of God]. Only two dignitaries talked about the Unseen World and knowledge of the Unseen World.

So this time, when Jesus finally shows up in public, they must believe in Jesus as divine. If they don’t, they are not connected to Jesus. [Similarly, when] HDE Gohar Shahi shows up again in public, they must admit that HDE Gohar Shahi is divine.

Amar Bil Maroof Wa Nahi Anil Munkar Ki Tashreeh (Part 2)
5th February 2017|LecturesVideos

Amar Bil Maroof Wa Nahi Anil Munkar Ki Tashreeh (Part 2)

Younus AlGohar explains how Dhikr-e-Qalb is the key to fulfilling a famous phrase in Islam: Amar Bil Maroof Wa Nahi Anil Munkar.

Watch Part 1 Here.

Main points:
– Dhikr-e-Qalb (Invocation of the Heart) is only granted with God’s will. A Prophetic Tradition states that whoever says the Declaration of Faith in their last moments will enter Paradise; when you have Dhikr-e-Qalb, your spiritual heart repeats God’s name constantly even after you die. It is a rosary that doesn’t stop.

– When God allows his name to enter your heart, it means he wants to make you his friend. Dhikr-e-Qalb is minor sainthood. When God sees that a person is to be his friend, he ensures that he has Dhikr-e-Qalb; the constant repetition of God’s name in his heart ensures that he will never be heedless of God. Amar Bil Maroof means to push towards goodness; this is what a heart enlightened with God’s name does. Such a heart pulls one towards God. In a verse of the Quran, God says that heedlessness is directly linked to hearts being deprived of God’s Dhikr (invocation).

– All the celestial books relate to a particular name of God. Bring Ya Rehman in your heart and you’ll be given understanding of Moses’s religion and book revealed upon him. Invocation of the name Ya Quddus will result in the verses of the original Bible being revealed to your heart. Bring Ism-e-Allah in your heart and the entire Quran will be put into your heart. Similarly if you are granted the name Ya Muhammad you can distinguish between authentic and inauthentic Prophetic Traditions.

– Dhikr-e-Qalb is the key to making man completely obedient to God. When Noor (divine energy) produced from God’s name enlightens the entire body, the man submits to God in total. This is the rank of a Momin (true believer). A saint is one who has prepared his souls, and through the medium of Prophet Mohammad has reached Moqam-e-Mehmood. He witnesses God’s splendour after which a reflectory image of God comes onto his heart. Then God looks at his heart over 300 times a day and theophanies fall upon him. A single theophany of God burns seven major sins. Those in the company of such a saint will come under those theophanies and be inclined towards goodness automatically.

– Nahi Anil Munkir means to stop from bad things. The root of all evil in you is your Nafs (Carnal Self). By stopping its Naar (negative energy) intake and giving it Noor, you’ll stop it from badness. When the satan inside you has become obedient to God through this method, you won’t be inclined towards doing wrong.

Khudayi Fassad Aur Aloohiyat-e-GOHAR SHAHI
30th January 2017|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Khudayi Fassad Aur Aloohiyat-e-GOHAR SHAHI

Read the full article here.

Food for thought about how God behaves with his creation and the new option offered to humanity by Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.

Main points:
– In rapturous love, there is equality between the two parties involved; however God always remembers he is the creator and that human beings are his creation. How can he engage in rapturous love then? When human beings wanted to love God, he did not tell them how to love him; rather they said he would do the loving himself. Human beings are practically helpless in his system. It is time for humanity to demand their divine rights from God.

– God has a lot to answer for. On the Primordial Day, when a multitude of souls leapt for the modelled luxuries of the world, there was no Carnal Self to influence them towards the world. It was the nature God created them with that pulled them towards the luxuries of the world; therefore it is not their fault they will enter hellfire, but rather God’s.

– The true Lord is the one who came on Earth and went through the human journey. He is the one who feels what human beings feel. God did not do this; but Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi did. If anyone obtains God today, it is because of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi’s bounty.

– Whoever seeks paradise will enter paradise, but whoever seeks God will also enter paradise. It should have been that those who seek God should be put with God. Some people have sacrificed everything to reach God, and in the end they’ll go to paradise. However Lord Ra Riaz says that whoever seeks Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi will stay with Lord Ra Riaz forever. This is a sincere offer.

– Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi is the Lord whose claims are offers are sincere. He does not do anything out of greed. He never created any creation to worship him; he gave his creation all sorts of liberties. God however, did create his creation to worship him. On the Day of Judgement, we will find out whose kingship is in effect. On that day, all will want to bow before Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, but only those will be able to who have bowed before Him in the phenomenal world.

Martaba-e-Nabuwat Aur Risalat Zaat-e-Muhammad Mein Yakja Kese?
19th January 2017|LecturesVideos

Martaba-e-Nabuwat Aur Risalat Zaat-e-Muhammad Mein Yakja Kese?

What is the difference between messengerhood and prophethood, and why is it important to know in the case of Prophet Mohammad? Read the full transcript of this video in Urdu here.

Main points:

– In terms of prophethood, all prophets are equal in the eyes of God. However, there is more to Prophet Mohammad than his prophethood. For example, the body of Adam was created with the clay from Paradise while Prophet Mohammad’s body was created with God’s light (Noor). God didn’t declare for any other prophet besides Prophet Mohammad, ‘I have sent you as mercy for all mankind.’

– Messengers are sent to establish a religion while prophets are sent to reform what has been adulterated within their religions. Prophet Mohammad is both a messenger and a prophet. After Prophet Mohammad, God declared that there would be no more prophets. Prophet Mohammad’s benevolence as a messenger was granted to immediate followers while his benevolence as a prophet was reserved to be distributed to the saints of his nation as need arose. The saints who received this benevolence would reform the religion as prophets had done in other religions; they enlightened the hearts of Muslims.

– Prophet Mohammad received two types of revelation: one as a messenger and one as a prophet. The revelation related to his prophethood was not used immediately but kept for when the religion would become subject to mischief. Mujaddid Alif Thani, the Grand Reformer, came 1000 years after establishment of Islam. He received a small amount of benevolence from Prophet Mohammad’s rank as a prophet. The rest of the knowledge and blessings of Prophet Mohammad’s prophethood was kept for Imam Mehdi. A Prophetic Tradition states that Imam Mehdi would renew the religion completely after Islam would come to an end.

– There is even more to Prophet Mohammad than him being a prophet and messenger. He possessed two extra souls which originate from God: Tifl-e-Noorie and Jussa-e-Taufiq-e-Ilahi. They relate to Faqr (spiritual poverty) and Ishq (rapturous love) respectively. Different Companions of Prophet Mohammad were granted benevolence of either Faqr or Ishq. Furthermore, Prophet Mohammad’s soul was created to witness God’s splendour; there, his soul says God’s name and God says its name. His subtlety of Ana, called Mehmood, also has its own station.

Tasleeb-e-Eesa Aur Ahmadiyon Ka Aqeeda
13th January 2017|LecturesVideos

Tasleeb-e-Eesa Aur Ahmadiyon Ka Aqeeda

Younus AlGohar responds to the Ahmadi sect’s claims that Jesus did not ascend to the higher realms and that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani was Jesus.

Main points:

– In the Quran, God stated very clearly that neither was Jesus killed nor crucified; rather God raised him towards himself. God did however say that a doubt was created for people at the time of Jesus.

– There are many words in all language which will have different meanings depending on the connotation. In Quran 3:55 where God mentions ascension of Jesus, the word ‘mutawafee’ is used; many of those who have done translation of the Holy Quran have taken this word to mean ‘death’. The root word of mutawafee is ‘wafa’, which means ‘to complete [something].’ When Jesus is mentioned by God in this scenario, God takes Jesus’s full name: Jesus Son of Mary. This title is mentioned only when God talks about Jesus’s body. In other words, God was saying to Jesus, ‘I will raise you completely.’

– If mutawafee meant ‘to give death’ as the Ahmadis claim, then why did God say to Jesus, ‘I will raise you [towards me]’? The Ahmadis argue that it refers to the ascension of Jesus’s soul – but everyone’s soul ascends when they die. Why did God mention this specifically about Jesus? They also may say that God was talking about the ascension of Jesus’s body, but this argument would be nonsensical. When the body of Prophet Mohammad, the Leader of Prophets, is in Medina, why would God choose to ascend the (dead) body of Jesus? What would be the point?

– Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani cannot claim to be Jesus Son of Mary, because his own mother was someone other than Mary. God ascended Jesus Son of Mary towards himself. Prophet Mohammad mentioned that Jesus Son of Mary would return (meaning in his own body) therefore there is no way Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani could be Jesus. This is a lie projected by Ahmadis to support their belief system.

Youm-e-Ghaibat: GOHAR SHAHI La Fani Hain
26th December 2016|LecturesVideos

Youm-e-Ghaibat: GOHAR SHAHI La Fani Hain

Younus AlGohar discusses the occultation of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi and reveals important divine secrets on Occultation Day 2016.

Main points:

– When Occultation happened, most followers of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi were not fully aware of His rank. In the book, ‘The Religion of God (Divine Love)’, Younus AlGohar had written a preface explaining that HDE Gohar Shahi is the Awaited Imam Mehdi, Messiah and Kalki Avatar; this was included in the book with the permission of HDE Gohar Shahi.

– HDE Gohar Shahi’s image in the Holy Black Stone has been providing salvation to the entire humanity for centuries. Only when you are aware of the importance and value of something will you care for it in the appropriate manner.

– HDE Gohar Shahi is immortal. When the Day of Occultation came every year, rather than crying, we would promote the teachings and tell people about the eminence of HDE Gohar Shahi. The people who oppose us, they oppose us on the basis of our teachings.

– God comes from the Unseen World. He created this universe and all creation within it. In order to reach God, human beings obtain Invocation of the Heart, in which the constant remembrance of God in the heart generates His light and takes one towards God. Because God himself never came upon Earth, his name is the intermediary used to take man towards himself. However, HDE Gohar Shahi came on Earth; therefore seekers can now obtain benevolence from His images.

Thoughts on Extra-Celestial Secrets
21st December 2016|ArticlesLecturesVideos

Thoughts on Extra-Celestial Secrets

At the time of Prophet Mohammad, the knowledge of the heart was considered to be very obscure. It wasn’t meant to be given to men of little spiritual intelligence. If the secretive spiritual knowledge is confined to the elite group of people only, the question is: who will decide who is a common man and who is member of the elite? This remains to be a mystery so far.

It was not just at the time of Prophet Mohammad that the knowledge of the heart was considered to be obscure, mystical and secretive. Such was the religious environment also at the time of Lord Jesus Christ. Only the very close, trustworthy disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ were given to taste the knowledge of the heart.

When Abu Hurraira (a Companion of Prophet Mohammed) was asked about different types of knowledge within Islam, he was scared. He said that he had already told people the most common type of knowledge and if he revealed the second type of knowledge, he feared he would be killed. Therefore, he didn’t comment on the secretive knowledge.

Later on, whoever was able to reap benefits of the knowledge of the heart became a saint of God. Then God appointed him to look for deserving souls of this knowledge. [The saints] did speak about that knowledge, though not in public; they [did so in] their spiritual centres. Even if it was revealed, it was revealed through different spiritual riddles and gestures. It wasn’t plain enough for common people to take any meaning out of it.

The Poet of the East, Iqbal, said, ‘Beyond the milky way and the stars, there are some furthermore realms.’ However, that is [all he said]. This statement doesn’t give you any road map as to what you should do in spirituality to go beyond those stars and reach those realms, which are laying empty somewhere hidden.

The knowledge of the heart is very important. Without the knowledge of the heart, you cannot reach anywhere for except churches, mosques and temples.

In spirituality, you have to have discipline, purgation and mortification. There have been millions of saints of God who came into this world. Somehow, they conveyed the knowledge of the heart very discretely without whispering the knowledge into words; they did it through a spiritual transmission between hearts.

It has been a sad fact that a majority of any religion was unable to translate the meaning of the Divine Word into true understanding. When the knowledge is heard in words, it does not carry the true interpretation.

Saying, ‘Sorry,’ when your eyes are full of tears is different from apologising while you are grinding your teeth and your nostrils are flared with anger. Although the word is the same, the impact is different: negative and positive [depending on the emotions it is said with]. Words are very deceptive. Emotions do not need words to travel from one heart to another.

The word of God is ethereal like himself. The word of God should be heard with ethereal — not material — ears.

The Divine Word has to enter the heart and the light which comes with it has to be absorbed inside the heart. If the word of God enters your brain rather than your heart, you will ruin [your] religion. For example, the food pipe is very close to the windpipe. If water enters the windpipe rather than the food pipe, you have problems.

Common folks of every religion haven’t been told how to understand the Divine Word. You cannot understand the Divine Word with your brain.

You need a sound, enlightened, spiritual heart. The spiritual heart has to be in contact with God, so that when you stumble in trying to understand any word of God, you are duly helped by God who resides in your heart.

If you do not have the presence of God in your heart, the chances are that you will never understand what God wants from you. This has been a case for centuries upon centuries.

I was in search for divine love and Prophet Mohammad’s love when I was a child. I did everything that I was aware of but I couldn’t get a glimpse of light, divinity or spirituality. After a few years of spiritual quest, I got sick and tired of following shadows and the futile practice of going into the mosque [to worship]. I didn’t avail anything out of it, so I got fed up, started playing cricket and forgot about God.

Then, somebody came and said, ‘I want you to meet my spiritual guide.’ I told him, ‘I’m already fed up with all these religious scholars, seminaries and clerics who say something and do another; who talk about God but do not know God. You are a good friend of mine and I respect what you are saying, however you have to make a promise to me. If you want me to go there with you, you have to say it in words that If I be misguided, you will be responsible on the Day of Judgement when I appear before God.’

He took oath and said that yes, he would be responsible.

I went to see what I was not planning, what I didn’t wish for or imagine of. It was something far greater than that which I would have imagined.

The beauty was that, before I could hear any discourse of spirituality from His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, just by looking at the face of the Lord, my inner devil submitted.

The splendour of HDE Gohar Shahi’s face was splendid, beautiful. The soul was dancing to the tunes of HDE Gohar Shahi’s love. In the next 20 minutes, I was initiated and my heart was pounding with God’s name. I was feeling like a different man, as if I had taken a shower of light and love. I felt like all the sins and their burden had been lifted from the shoulders of my soul; as if the heart was given a new life and new sight was given to my eyes. I was divinely mesmerised. Words will definitely fail me in describing what my feelings were in that moment in time.

I was astoundedly taken aback. No questions were asked by the Lord. He didn’t ask, ‘What do you do? Where do you come from? What sect in Islam do you practise? Are you a special soul or a wayfarer?’

Then, the mysteries of spirituality were laid open before my eyes by the Lord. My spiritual journey started. I was taken to every single realm that exists, either here or there. I was given to see the Lord with his beauty.

Then, I found out that there is a real world and this world that we live in is not real. That world is not here; only the enlightened souls will be given to see that realm. I managed to see those realms also, but I didn’t seem too excited or satisfied.

Then one day, the Lord said, ‘After the perimeters set by God, after the Line of Nothingness, there is another world: the Unseen World.’

We live in this world with human beings and different species of animals. There are 18 000 different creatures here. In the Unseen World, there is a different type of individuals [and they are 35 million in number]. ‘Allah’ is the name of their nation [just as] the entire human race is a nation.

I came to know that we are images of those individuals who live in the Unseen World.

When I was there, I was told by God that God is only one — as it is revealed by all religions. The Lord said to me in the Unseen World, ‘There are many different types of human beings with different faces. God created Adam in his own image. If every single human is the image of this God, why do the images differ? If God created every human being in his image, then all of you should look the same.’

The images from the Unseen World of 35 million individuals were borrowed by God. So there has to be 35 million different images [in this world] and they keep repeating.

For example, those who were created after the image of Lord Jesus Christ (who is from the Unseen World), will have some emotional and spiritual features of Lord Jesus Christ in them. Whether someone is a Muslim, Hindu or Christian — whoever they are — they will have features of whom they have been created in the image of.

We are just images. The real people live in the Unseen World and they are known as the Community of God (Allah Biradari).

I was told so much there. I forgot how to deal with human beings. I forgot what the right form of behaviour is for human beings — what they should look for and what they should wish for. I spent quite a bit of time [in the Unseen World] and I adopted their ways.

I revealed to a common man that there is a secretive realm beyond the world created by God. There are 35 million individuals in the Community of God, and they are all God-alike.

I couldn’t resist. I didn’t want to create another mischief in this world; however, I thought, ‘The knowledge of the heart has been made secretive and has been concealed from common people for centuries. People have been left deprived of this spiritual knowledge. Many million people would have acquired God’s love, if only this knowledge was available for them.’

I realised that I know the truth. I am a victim of the concealment of the knowledge of the heart and this victimisation has to come to an end now.

For centuries, people have been keeping up with the trend set by different Companions of the Prophet and saints of God. They were those who enjoyed God’s love, bounties and blessings, but they confined it to themselves. They did not look upon other people who were even deprived of being called devout Christians or Muslims.

I thought, ‘Why should I do that? Why should I conceal the truth when I know it?’

I did have some idea that if I revealed this, an abundance of hatred would come to me and difficulties would surround me. I know I don’t deserve hatred from people, but then I know that great ones do not take revenge.

Great ones forgive only! Great ones do not degrade themselves by coming to [the level of those who hate them]. Great ones cannot devalue themselves no matter how hard it gets. Now matter how severely they are tarnished and tormented, the greatness inside them will sustain their sanity and forbearance.

If I continued to propagate God’s love and spirituality, I would have gathered many thousands of people around me. However, if I had concealed the knowledge and secret of the Unseen World, my conscience would never forgive me.

It is not just that it pertains to the truth of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, but it is also to do with the truth of Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus shared this secretive knowledge with his disciples and HDE Gohar Shahi shared it with some of His companions. In these circumstances, there was now no room for me to save my skin and conceal all this truth.

If I was a coward and didn’t want to take hatred from people, I would have concealed this truth. I am not a coward. I am ready to take up any amount of hatred from any religion or individual.

I decided that I must raise my voice. At one point in time, I was a victim, made so by some elite individuals who concealed the knowledge of the heart. That victimisation came to an end with HDE Gohar Shahi spoke about this in public.

This knowledge was never discoursed in public because people were not brave enough to take up all this hatred from others. They couldn’t deal with all the religious verdicts against them [if they chose to speak about spirituality].

Every single individual who spoke about this knowledge was given a hard time by hardliners and the radical element within Islam. And it was not just Islam. Even the conventional Jews do not approve of Kabbalah teachings. The Christian hierarchy do not approve of Christian spirituality.

In every religion, a majority of people who practise the religion vigorously do not approve of this knowledge of spirituality for any reason.

One reason may that they do not know what spirituality is. Secondly, maybe they are quiet because they think that if they spoke about this knowledge, they would have to face a lot resentment and hatred coming from public. They wanted to leave a peaceful, cosy life therefore, they didn’t take this challenge.

I thought, ‘I claim to love HDE Gohar Shahi and I want peace? What a foolish idea!’

If you love HDE Gohar Shahi, then forget about peace. Your life will become a struggle, with a promise that during that struggle, you will never stumble. HDE Gohar Shahi will keep up with your progression.

I know when I speak about the Unseen World, God who created this world doesn’t seem to be pleased. However, when I look on my right, I see Lord Jesus smiling. When I look at my front, I see Lord Ra Riaz smiling. That is enough for the peace of my heart that whatever I am doing is not wrong and somehow or other, I am bringing a smile on their faces. These are the most important faces of my life.

This is not a made up story. If this has been a made up story, I would only declare this to be the truth — but I don’t do that. I say, ‘All these prophets are true. God is the creator of this universe. People who want to love him, I will help them love him. People who want to reach him, I will help them reach him.’

I am not rejecting him. I respect all the prophets and saints of God because I know they are true. I respect God because he is the creator. I don’t deny that.

The only additional thing I say on top of every other truth is the secret of the Unseen World. I say it because I have the feeling that I have been a victim of the spiritual system in which the knowledge that we badly needed to purify our heart was not available.

We were kept in the dark for all these years. We were told to offer Salat [a certain way] and go to the mosque, but it was fruitless according to Prophetic Traditions and Quran. We were never told of the knowledge of the heart.

The inspiration of revealing this truth of the Unseen World comes from my own emotions. The emotions of being a victim of the spiritual system, in which I was seeking to love God and the knowledge which would allow me to love God was not available.

Where are the elite ones and who are they? If they are elite and I am not elite, is this my fault? We are how we are born; it is not our fault. Why should [one person] be upgraded and [another] be downgraded? What kind of system and justice is this?

I decided not to let anybody else in this world become yet another victim of this spiritual system. So I revealed [the truth]. I was duly supported by the Lords.

Without their help, I wouldn’t have travelled an inch. [We] live in such a hostile world. The hostility is so fierce and it comes from somebody who is capable of doing anything, [God]. Still we are survivors, because the one who is taking care of us is greater than the one who has developed an unreasonable hostility.

[God doesn’t] have to be hostile to human beings made of clay and ‘a dirty drop of water.’ This is how we are described by God. He said that we are the result of a dirty drop of water.

When you introduce your children to other people, do you ever say, ‘This is my son and he is the result of a dirty drop of semen’? It is strange: God described us in the Quran in such a way. What a bad introduction to human beings! If you see your God struggling with proper words, in which Lord or God would you keep your hopes?

I gave you food for thought: God created man in his own image. There are so many men in this world. Everybody has a different image. Which one is your image? How come there are so many images? It is simply because there are 35 million images in the Unseen World.

God created one Adam in his own image, but there are different images. Not everybody looks like Adam.

For example, there are two brothers who don’t look like each other. If one of them in the image of God, then what about his brother?

So a foreign help is established. What about that claim [of God] now, ‘Do not appoint partners with me’?
