For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing the soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
The intention of scripture is to balance you. Scripture ultimately intends for you to go through the conscious process of connecting your heart to your mind. This process awakens and activates your conscience. Scripture intends for you to be permanently mindful of what you are doing while functioning in truth. This is the state of integrity. When you reach this ultimate state of integrity yoga tells you that your chakras are balanced. Your heart is running the show and clearly connected to the soul. You are completely truthful. When you get to this point you do not need scripture anymore. Scripture has done its job. You will know when you get to this point.
We all have a “piece” of the one big soul in us. This one big soul is our Universal Self. The soul is the spark of God in us and goes by different names. Remember, the name of this blog is WORDS ARE TRAPS. This paper intends for you to use intuition combined with reason. This same soul is in our different bodies. We each are at different degrees of awareness of this fact, that is, reality. We are at different degrees of love or goodness. Your real job is to do your soul work. This soul work takes you to realize that you are not separate among others. We are one soul in different bodies. The development of the individual “piece” of the “big soul” you are managing affects the development of the individual souls others are managing. We are connected by vibration. Through meditation, or other cerebral and physical activities, you reach the presence of your individual soul. Soul presence has the ability to watch your thoughts. This is the real you watching your thoughts. You are not your thoughts. This is the real us. This is the Same-Soul-Self that is our Universal Self. We get to the point where we can see this in each-other. This reaching, or uncovering the soul, is where we find our true reality. Reaching and uncovering your/our soul does not mean your mind is clearly connected to your heart. When your conscience is activated your heart knows its level of awareness. Your heart knows its level of goodness or love. You work from here. It has to do with truth.
Hebrews 4:12 speaking of the word of God states, ” it penetrate even to dividing the soul and spirit.” The afore mentioned paragraph has explained through the limited use of language the spiritual reality of the Universal-Self-Soul. We now get to “dividing the soul and spirit.” Your spirit is the vibrational expression of the individual soul you are managing. The whole of creation is affected by your spirit via the domino effect. You affect our cosmology, that is, our Universe. Your spirit is your mind connected to your heart, ego, and overall personality. How clear is your soul-heart-mind-spirit connection? The “division” is you, the presence of your “piece” of individual soul, watching the spirit emanations of your mind and ego – soul watches spirit. Our spiritual objective, of course, is for us to tame our egos and have a clear heart-mind connection. Taming the ego has much to do with the virtue of humility. Humility teaches us to be truthful while handling vulnerability. The soul then runs the personality. We are attempting to perfect our souls. We sense how individual soul development affects the collective soul development of humanity.
The word of God “penetrates…joints and marrow.” This means that it penetrates our bodies. The realized word of God becomes us. The realized word of God radiates in our cell tissue and nervous systems. We erase the obstructions between our minds and hearts and realize that God is part of us and everything else.
The word of God, “judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” The word of God judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart until we become one with the word of God. You fully awaken and activate your conscience. You will know when you have become one with the word of God. When you have become one with the word of God you do not need scripture any more. The word of God has done its job. Your heart has become aligned with the Sacred Heart. Your heart then teaches you with Truth-Universal because you have aligned with our Universal Heart. You have uncovered and clarified our Universal-Same-Self-Soul. How hard you work at all this is up to you. Do the best you can contributing to evolving humanity.
