THE OPENING OF THE SPIRITUAL HEART Benefits of the Opening of the Spiritual Heart Zoomed Image • Establishment of personal connection with God • Improves one’s character, bringing in divine attributes H is Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s method of choice for all humanity is known as the Opening of the Spiritual Heart (Dhikr-e- Qalb/Simran/Inner Baptism). This is the gateway to connect with God. The Spiritual Heart is located on top of the physical heart in the human body. It is the soul designated for God by God himself. The Spiritual Heart, upon entry in the world, is dormant in the body. In the average person, it remains unconscious. Anyone who wants to establish a personal connection with God must revive their Spiritual Heart. His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi declares, ‘The heart is the passage that leads to God.’ He further adds, ‘Similitude of the heart is like that of a telephone operator between man and God.’ The Spiritual Heart is an angelic spirit and it is awakened with Divine Energy. With His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s method, a name of God is inserted in the beating system of the heart. Water splashes together and hydroelectricity is produced; in a similar way, flint and steel are struck against one another and a spark is generated. Likewise, the name of God is synchronised within the heartbeats; the constant repetition of God’s name in the heart generates Divine Energy. This Divine Energy purifies and enlightens the heart, paving the way for God’s merciful sight to fall upon it. When Divine Energy is generating in your inner being, divine attributes also manifest in you. You begin to adopt compassion, generosity and unconditional love without needing to make a conscious effort. 16 THE TRUE MEHDI • ISSUE 04 • SEPT 2017 • Safeguards the souls from many esoteric diseases, prevents physical diseases caused by loss of energy in the organs • Unifies people of all nations and faiths His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi proclaims, ‘If the pious ones and the worshippers of all religions stand in a row, and God is requested to manifest His accord as to which ones of them would He prefer to look at, who would He choose? As you would involuntarily look at the glittering stars, whether it is Mars, Mercury or an unknown star, in a similar fashion would God look at the enlightened hearts only, whether or not they practise a religion.’ According to the Koran, God guides through his light (Divine Energy). [KORAN 24:35] The Koran says that guidance is given to the enlightened hearts. [KORAN 64:11] The Messiah is also foretold to be the source of light for the entire world. [ISAIAH 42:1-6] When God’s merciful sight falls upon an enlightened heart, the connection between that heart and God is established. One who loves God, he loves humanity. All those who have obtained the Opening of the Spiritual Heart are united in the hearts, owing to the fact that their hearts have the same type of energy.
