Holy Spirit

 

What Is the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit (Brahman, in Sanskrit) is the Creator manifesting Himself in the Creation.

This Manifestation is Divine Teachers coming out from the Abode of the Creator.

They are those (in the past) people who developed Themselves to the state of Divinity and attained the eternal dwelling place in the Abode of the Creator.

The cosmic function of the Holy Spirit is to supervise the evolution of all souls of lower levels of development. It is the Holy Spirit Who organizes and supervises our destinies. He does it Himself, directly or by calling to assistance numerous spirits that possess various qualities, either “paradisiacal” or “diabolic”.

When we perceive waves of bliss coming from somewhere in response to our righteous thoughts or actions — this is the Holy Spirit manifesting Himself. In such instances, people say that He is granting us His Blessing.

In the Christian tradition, the Holy Spirit is considered as a Part of Triune God (Trinity).

As to the Christian tradition, the best description of the Holy Spirit is found in the Orthodox prayer Heavenly Tsar, which I deem to be the best of all Orthodox prayers. Here it is:

“Heavenly Tsar, the Consoler, the Spirit of Truth!

“Omnipresent and All-pervading!

“Treasury of all good and Source of all life!

“Come and abide in us!

“And cleanse us of all impurity!

“And save our souls, oh Blissful One!”

Below follow several excerpts describing the Holy Spirit from the book The Book of Jesus by B.Cullen:

“The Holy Spirit flows through you as soon as you begin realizing His flowing. As He passes through you, every cell of your body becomes filled with new energy. You become healed, rejuvenated, revived for new life.”

“He is infinite. He pervades everything. You can hardly turn away from the Holy Spirit; maybe in your consciousness only.”

“The Holy Spirit always streams through every atom in space.”

“When you live in ‘now’, The Holy Spirit flows through you and brings you more than you need, because to satisfy your needs and to show you the Kingdom is a great glory for your Father. … The Heavenly Kingdom is near. Why not accept it? Only strange ways of thinking make people to believe that it is impossible to achieve the Kingdom.”

(The Book of Jesus. "Polus", Saint Petersburg, 1997)
 

Cognition of the Holy Spirit

God in the aspect of the Creator and Holy Spirit is present in the subtlest spatial dimensions, which cannot be perceived with physical eyes. We can see Him only after refining ourselves (as consciousnesses) to His level of subtlety; we can see Him not with the eyes of the body, but with the eyesight of the consciousness. (See more details about the refinement of consciousness in the article Consciousness).

On the initial stages of spiritual work, the remarkable methods of communication with the Holy Spirit are the meditations Pranava and Latihan.
