To whom the soul truly belongs, to Him in the end it returns.

I first believed without any hesitation in the existence of the soul, and then I wondered about the secret of its nature. I persevered and strove in search of the soul, and found at last that I myself was the cover over my own soul. I realized that that in me which believed and that in me which wondered, that which was found at last, was no other than my soul. I thanked the darkness that brought me to the light, and I valued this veil that prepared for me the vision in which I saw myself reflected, the vision produced in the mirror of my soul. Since then I have seen all souls as my soul, and realized my soul as the soul of all. And what bewilderment it was when I realized that I alone was, if there were anyone; that I am whatever and whoever exists; and that I shall be whoever there will bein the future. And there was no end to my happiness and joy. Verily, I am the seed and I am the root, and I am the fruit of this tree of life.
It is to gatherknowledgethat the soul has come on earth. Looking into the past is just like looking deep down from great heights. It means probing the depths of life. Looking into the present is just like observing a wide horizon, as wide as we can see. Looking into the future is like looking upward to the zenith. In self-knowledge of past and present and future one has to learn what was the origin of the soul, how the soul has formed itself, how it has come to manifest, the knowledge ofthe process of manifestation, and the different stages through which it has passed towards manifestation. Regarding the present one should learn one’s own condition, the condition of one’s spirit, of one’s mind and body, one’s situation in life, and one’s individual relationship to others. One should also realize how far the soul reaches in the spiritual spheres.
The soul is an individuated portion of the all-pervading consciousness. It is undivided because it is the absolute Being; it is completely filled with the whole existence. The portion of it that is reflected by a certain name or form becomes comparitively more conscious of the object reflected upon a portion of the all-pervading soul which in reality is a universal spirit. The soul in itself alone is no other than consciousness, which is all-pervading. But when the same consciousness is caught in a limitation through being surrounded by elements, in that state of captivity it is called soul.
At the cost of the happiness of heaven, the soul comes to the great fulfillment of life, which even angels are not blessed with; for manifestation in human form is the utmost boundry of manifestation, the furthest that any soul can go.
Those who think that the heavenly knowledge is sufficient are mystical, but the joy of the heavenly knowledge and the full understanding of it come from being able to express it in this world’s medium of expression.
Every soul starts toward manifestation with the inclination of arriving at the destination of his journey, and that destination is the human plane. While descending toward this destination, every soul touches two distinct planes on its way, the angelic and the djinn plane. There are souls who, owing to lack of strength or owing to the attraction of a certain plane, remain and settle in that plane, instead of progressing further. But there are some who come to their real destination, and it is they who fulfill the purpose of life. It is therefore that man is considered greater than the djinn and higher than the angel.
There are some souls who halt in their journey to earth at either the djinn or the angelic plane a much longer time than a traveling soul would usually stay. And yet they cannot stay: the energy that is still there keeps them restless until they have accomplished their journey. Therefore, they come on earth as human beings, yet showing in their nature the character of the plane at which they had stationed on their way. They cannot help feeling homesick, for they often unconsciously feel that they do not belong to this earth, that they had some experience somewhere else that they long to have again. And the only way these souls can find is through the love of art, science, or knowledge of the djinn world, and through piety, purity, and spirituality to the angelic plane. This not only gives them a substitute for the life they have had, but to a greater or lesser extent the realization of that plane, because in the human being all planes are manifest.
It is the direction of the activity of vibrations that accounts for the variety of things and beings. It is a certain degree of vibration that brings to the earth the things of the inner world, and a change of vibrations takes away the things that are seen into the unseen world.
The next world is the same as this, and this world is the same as the next, only what is veiled from out eyes we call the unseen world. And the reason why a person does not observe the unseen world is that he is accustomed to observe only what is before him; he never turns within to see what is within him.
“In the other world” means in a world which is veiled from our eyes, our physical eyes; but it does not mean a world far away from us, beyond our reach. Both the living and the dead inhabit the same space; we all live together. Only a veil separates us, the veil of this physical body. Separation means being unable to see one another. There is no other separation.
The mind is a world, a world that man makes and in which he will make his life in the hereafter, as a spider lives in the web it has woven.
Possibility is the nature of God, and impossibility is the limitation of man.
