https://roshan80986.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/a453f-art-17.jpg?w=620

                The spirit that never dies

         is called the mysterious feminine.

Although she becomes the whole universe,

      her immaculate purity is never lost.

   Although she assumes countless forms,

         her true identity remains intact.

The gateway to the mysterious female

         is called the root of creation.

                       Listen to her voice,

              hear it echo through creation.

       Without fail, she reveals her presence.

Without fail, she brings us to our own perfection.

            Although it is invisible, it endures;

                            it will never end.

The spirit that never dies

         is called the mysterious feminine.

Although she becomes the whole universe,

      her immaculate purity is never lost.

   Although she assumes countless forms,

         her true identity remains intact.

Lao Tzu talks about a role of a spirit in this world that resides within all the beings.

Lao Tzu says that the spirit that never dies is called the mysterious feminine. Although she becomes the whole universe, her immaculate purity is never lost.

The spirit resides in all of us, and all the things manifest from the spirit, but it’s as pure as it was, from the day of its creation.

In every form of a human, the spirit has its nature, to grow, flourish, create, innovate, to give, to expand, to rise, and to utilize its every form with the best of its ability, and nourish them all the time, to take him to its own perfection.

The gateway to the mysterious female

         is called the root of creation.

In this phrase, Lao Tzu guides us towards the path, to realize the soul, i.e. the root of all the creation.

The gateway to the mysterious female is called the root of the creation.

When we move towards the realization of the soul, we get to the root of all the things created on this earth.

When we see the outside world, we see the manifestation of thoughts and feelings of each individual, from the centuries.

Everything is created from the soul. All the thoughts, feelings, and emotions flow through the soul, according to the capacity of an individual.

When we reside in the soul, we see the root of all the creation on this earth, and into our lives.

      Listen to her voice,

              hear it echo through creation.

       Without fail, she reveals her presence.

Without fail, she brings us to our own perfection.

            Although it is invisible, it endures;

                            it will never end.

In this phrase, Lao Tzu describes how the soul interacts with an individual and guides him towards its own perfection.

The soul speaks to human through intuitions, feelings, and emotions. Our heart is directly connected to the soul.

Everything created in this world, reveals his presence.

The soul constantly works on our body, mind, and emotions, to take it towards its own perfection.

The process of evolution to realize the soul or the Tao, in the physical body. All the situations of our life are to bring us closer to the perfection of the soul, at the level of body, mind, and emotions.

After we realize the soul, our actions become more divine, and we move towards the perfection of our self, supporting other individuals on this earth.

Our personality is made up of body, mind, and emotions, and it’s constantly changing and evolving all the time towards the perfection of the soul. When we understand this truth, we accept all the moments of life, with great humility, and take part wholeheartedly in all the events of our life, as we are aware, that everything has something to contribute towards our success.

Our body, mind, and emotions die and decay over the time, but the soul or the Tao, that is invisible, last long, till the end.

The reincarnation in the human form is all about the perfection of body, mind, and emotions. If we miss out, in one life, we come back again to work on our self to get the perfection with our self.

The soul within each one of us is responsible for our perfection. It takes time for us to understand this truth, at the level of mind.

When we create outside desire for life, the soul supports us to fulfill that desire. But there will never be a force from the soul, to guide us towards the realization, unless we ourselves, creates the desire to move towards the spiritual path.

Although everyone has to go through the natural process of evolution, and before we fulfill our self, with the desires of the world, it’s difficult to get our self on the path of realization. The best way we can live is to give everything. To what we love on this earth and get satisfied and fulfill our self, with the worldly desires, so that we can create the real desire, to realize the highest truth of life.

The soul reveals itself to the mind, body, and emotions when he is convinced that the person is ready to devote himself completely towards the self-improvement, and will dedicate his entire life towards the perfection of his body, mind and emotions, on the path of spirituality. The path of spirituality is, to be honest with your heart, come what may, it demands the person, to act upon.

If it asks to accept the world wholeheartedly, it should be followed, if it asks to renounce the world, then even that should be followed. The heart knows what is needed on the path of spirituality, to realize the highest self.

The more we connect to the soul, the better we understand the existence. The better we understand, the more we align our action plan, with the natural law of the creation.

When we develop a knowing, that every moment of our life, we are taken care of, by the soul, and we will receive the guidance, as and when it’s needed, the heart feels contented, the efforts becomes effortless, and our actions become desireless actions, on the path of life.

Lesson from the Verse 6 :

Lao Tzu wants to share the message from this verse, about the Tao, is that; the path to the Tao or the Soul is the root of all the creation. We have to listen to the voice of the Tao or the soul, through heart, and search for its presence, in all its creation, on this earth.

This will bring us closer to the Tao or the Soul, at every moment in our life. The soul is the only thing, that lasts forever, and it works through our body, mind and emotions, to carry to the stage of its own perfection.

Verse 7:      The sage puts himself last and so ends up ahead.

                        He stays a witness to life, so he endures.           

                                                                                                To Be Continued . . . .
