Shri Mataji: "You have all the control, all the powers to take your soul wherever you feel like"
"But we can only truly experience the spirit after death. So what does Shri Rama teach about human Spirit? What does our Divine Mother teach us on this topic? What do the Holy Scriptures teach about it? i have realized that Deepak Chopra, by virtue of his academic background and grasp of religious texts, gives the best answers in his book"Life After Death: The Burden Of Proof.” i bought this book at the Montreal Airport on the way to India. It is such a fabulous and priceless book that i cannot even go beyond the various praises and introduction to Chapter One.”- Jagbir Singh
i believe the Divine Mother within has revealed far more about the spirit than anything available from Her incarnation Shri Mataji. That She did so on Her own account to narrate about the spirit to Arwinder only underscores the importance of this subject. Over the years i have known the Divine Mother to be frugal with words and rarely gives enlightenment on Her own ............. though She will answer almost any question posed to Her in the Sahasrara. So Her priceless enlightenment about the spirit should be treasured forever:
"I) i asked him if you can cross and pass one hand through the other or for example across the neck. He replied that you can, and even pass through fellow spirit beings or any obstacle for the matter.
ii) so if you can cross the hands and pass them through each other how was it possible to sit on Shri Durga's tiger? Arwinder replied that the spirit can assume any form to do any task. If the intention of your spirit is to sit on a tiger you will—the spirit just does that effortlessly.
iii) is it possible to feel one's heartbeat? In the first place, does one have a heart? Arwinder said a spirit has no heart or any internal organ for the matter.
iv) can the spirit assume any form? Arwinder confirmed that it can. The spirit can experience anything it desires - an insect, tree, animal, human being, mountain, ocean ......... even an entire planet or galaxy. It can contract into the smallest size or expand into the largest. But he clarified that one is always conscious of being the spirit. In other words, while experiencing being an ocean you are always conscious that you are still a spirit. Thus from a ocean you can easily become an entire galaxy, but at all times ever conscious of being a spirit. This consciousness of being spirit is always there.
v) so what is the spirit form at all times? What are you when you walk or sit? Arwinder said being the spirit and walking is like experiencing the wind. He said as a human it is really difficult to explain/understand this experience as there is nothing similar to it. The wind is the best he can come up with as the form of spirit is not solid.”
The key is understanding that"spirit can experience anything it desires - an insect, tree, animal, human being, mountain, ocean.” In other words, the spirit can take birth as a human again ........... either as male or female. The spirit can also experience itself as an insect, tree, mountain, ocean or anything it wishes. The sexual nature of spirit, a question of our base nature and ignorance, never arises.
The Spirit is in fact omniscient (all knowing), omnipresent (present in all locations simultaneously), and omnipotent (all powerful). It is pure consciousness. What then is the sex of pure consciousness?
But what is meant by"spirit"? What is its essential nature? Is the human spirit (drop) any different from the Spirit that is God (Ocean)?
According to Deepak Chopra"Your essential being is the source of all being—the field of pure consciousness that manifests as the entire universe. In this very moment, pure consciousness illuminates and animates your mind and body, and it is powerful, invincible, unbounded, and free. When you know yourself as this field of consciousness, you have power to manifest your desires, you have freedom from fear and limitations, and you live in grace, which is that state of consciousness where things flow and your desires are easily fulfilled.
Joy and sorrow, happiness and suffering, are the play of opposites; they are transient because they are time-bound. Spirit, the essential you, is independent of the play of opposites: it dwells in the silent bliss of the eternal. That's why the key to happiness is to identify with the unchanging essence of your inner self—to live and play in the field of intelligence that is beyond positive and negative. This field is your source, and it is magical, holy, joyful and free...
Happiness and sadness are different faces of infinite consciousness. Both are transient, and you are neither because you are not a state of consciousness. You are consciousness itself expressing all of these states. Why would want to identify with a wave on the ocean or a mere drop of water when you are the ocean? You are not the ever- changing behaviour of the ocean. You are the water-i-ness of the ocean. And this water-i-ness doesn't change.
Vedanta declares," Know that one thing by knowing which everything else is known.”For one who knows the Self, the limitations of the world disappears.” (Deepak Chopra: Power, Freedom, and Grace: Living from the Source of Lasting Happiness)
"The essential you, your real essence, is a field of awareness that interacts with its own self and then becomes both mind and body. In other words, you are consciousness or spirit, which then conceives, constructs, governs, and becomes the mind and the body. The real you is inseparable from the patterns of intelligence that permeate every fiber of creation.
At the deepest level of existence, you are Being, and you are nowhere and everywhere at the same time. There is no other"you"than the entire cosmos. The cosmic mind creates the physical universe, and the personal mind experiences the physical universe. But in truth, the cosmic mind and the personal mind are both permeated by infinite consciousness. Infinite consciousness is our source, and all manifestation is inherent within it...
At first this may sound strange and abstract, but as you bear with this notion and understand it, you realize the most dramatic discovery: The real you is nonmaterial and therefore not subject to the limitations of space, time, matter, and causation. The soul, the spirit, the essential you, is beyond all that. In this very moment, you are surrounded by a pure consciousness. Pure consciousness illuminates and animates your mind and body, and it is powerful, nourishing, invincible, unbounded, and free. Pure consciousness, the eternal spirit, animates everything in existence, which means it is omniscient (all knowing), omnipresent (present in all locations simultaneously), and omnipotent (all powerful).” (Deepak Chopra: Power, Freedom and Grace, pages 13-22)
Both the Divine Mother and Deepak Chopra declare that the spirit can assume/experience anything it wishes. The Divine Mother's incarnation, Shri Mataji, is basically telling the same thing:
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
To Achieve Complete Freedom, Cabella, Italy — May 7, 1995
"But you know that you have eternal life. You can never die. Death is not this body disappearing. Death is where you are absolutely without any control of your soul. Once you are a Realized soul you have all the control, all the powers to take your soul wherever you feel like — to be born if you like, if you don't want you will not be born. To be born with the people, in the families, in the communities, wherever you like.”
To Achieve Complete Freedom, Cabella, Italy — May 7, 1995
But we can only truly experience the spirit after death. So what does Shri Rama teach about human Spirit? What does our Divine Mother teach us on this topic? What do the Holy Scriptures teach about it? i have realized that Deepak Chopra, by virtue of his academic background and grasp of religious texts, gives the best answers in his book"Life After Death: The Burden Of Proof.” i bought this book at the Montreal Airport on the way to India. It is such a fabulous and priceless book that i cannot even go beyond the various praises and introduction to Chapter One.

Starred Review. In India death is perceived very differently than in the West," as a brief stopping point on an endless soul journey," says Chopra in this introduction to life beyond bodily existence. Chopra, a medical doctor and world leader in mind-body medicine as well as author of more than 45 books, now ventures to answer: what happens after we die? For Chopra, death deserves to be called miraculous, a"doorway to a far more important event—the beginning of the afterlife"And a mode of being that"can be as creative as living.”Chopra effectively uses the classic Vedanta story of Savitri— a woman who comes home to find death, Lord Yama, waiting to take her husband, and who seeks the monk Ramana's advice to outwit death—to frame each chapter. Chopra grounds each topic in the long arc of this singular story, which is the perfect springboard for Chopra to introduce concepts such as Akasha (the highest stage a soul can attain) and Eternity within the Indian tradition (where we are beyond death, life, maleness, femaleness, and the experience of time). Chopra presents a fascinating account of life after death for Westerners that will certainly please his avid fans and draw in new readers as well.

"By marrying science and wisdom in Life After Death, Chopra builds his case for an afterlife in which our most essential self, the seer that observes our experiences in this temporary home that we call the self, uses the end of this lifetime to pass over into the next. This is an intellectual and spiritual tour de force.”—Professor Robert Thurman, Columbia University, author of Infinite Life and The Tibetan Book of the Dead
i know that Shri Adi Shakti: The Kingdom Of God gives irrefutable evidence and faith of Life After Death: The Burden Of Proof.
