SELF DISCOVERY
Being aware of all this is self-realisation . It all depends on how well you know yourself . Most people don ’ t even know how many of their souls are active and how many are inactive . They want to know themselves , but there is a barrier .

The Spiritual Human Anatomy

Self-realisation is not possible without a Universal Spiritual Guide . All you know right now is what you can see in a mirror . What is inside you is hidden even from you , and only God has the keys .
There are keys in spirituality with which you activate your souls . When your main soul is strong enough to fly , you reach its realm . If your Spiritual Heart is active , strong and able to perform a spiritual journey , you will reach its respective realm . Then , in spirituality a new door of realisation opens up within you , revealing more of your capabilities and spiritual calibre . You will then be triggered into activating other souls within you . With every activated soul , you will have more access to the spiritual realm and will know more of yourself .
When all your souls are activated , you will arrive at the Station of God-Seeing . This is the Station of Union where your being and the supreme being of God will mingle with each other in such a spiritual chemistry that there will be no mark of distinction between the two .
When you obtain union with God , you ’ ll become the embodiment of God on Earth . Thereafter , sitting with you will be spiritually equal to sitting with God . Speaking with you will be equal to speaking with God because you will have God ’ s presence in you ; God will speak through you . God will be able to see people through your eyes and when you walk , it will be as if God is walking on two legs . This is selfrealisation .

EVERY HUMAN BEING IS A COMPOUND of multiple souls . In total , there are seven main subtleties in the human body . Once enlightened , some of the spirits potentially produce sub-spirits , meaning that an enlightened and divinely accomplished human being can be comprised of a total of sixteen spirits .

The seven main spirits in the human body are :
1 .
The Carnal Self ( Nafs )
2 .
The Spiritual Heart ( Qalb )
3 .
The Main Human Soul ( Rouh )
4 .
The Secret ( Sirri )
5 .
The Arcane ( Khafi )
6 .
The Obscure ( Akhfah )
7 .
Me ( Ana )
By default , all the spirits in the human body remain dormant unless you manage to revive them with the help of spirituality . The only spirit in you that is already active is the Carnal Self , as the realm it relates to is the phenomenal world . There are many hidden esoteric and exoteric functions of each subtlety which are only unlocked when you awaken and illuminate it . For example , the exoteric functions of the five subtleties in the breast relate to the five senses .
His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi explains , ‘ Spirituality has nothing to do with any religion . Spirituality is the knowledge with the help of which you can awaken your souls . You can strengthen them and through them , you reach the higher realms and approach God .’
