The great misconception is that we are individual beings and that each individual being is imbued with a unique and individual soul.
There is no such thing as an individual soul.
There is only one consciousness, a universal consciousness, that sort of shines through each person or animal or plant, and it
even shines through inanimate objects (elements, compounds, minerals).
Think of it like this: Think of the Universal Consciousness as a single, bright incandescent lightbulb; think of our three-dimensional
universe as an infinitely vast sheet of opaque black construction paper; and think of the Creative Force as a sort of pushpin, punching
hundreds, thousands, millions, billions, trillions and quadrillions of tiny holes through the black paper.
Now, in its own dimension, the Universal Consciousness is just one incredibly bright light. In our dimension — on the other side of
the black sheet — there is no light whatsoever. The Will of the Universal Consciousness — or the Will of God, or The
Creative Force, or whatever you want to call it — pierces countless holes into our physical world, allowing the light of Universal
Consciousness to penetrate into our cold, dark dimension.
How does the single light of Universal Consciousness appear to us, over here in the dark universe? Because it only penetrates through these countless
holes in the darkness, it appears to us as countless individual lights. I'm not talking about the appearance of stars and galaxies,
necessarily; rather, when I say countless individual lights, I'm talking about the appearance of myriad consciousnesses in our
universe. You could say that each of us is such a hole in the darkness, allowing the same light to penetrate into our dark
We all, therefore, are conduits of a single light. A single soul, if you will.
The single light of consciousness has nothing to do with our intelligence — intelligence is just a product of physical evolution, a
tool of physical survival. For example, a paramecium is the most intelligent creature in its world, from its perspective; a sand crab is the
most intelligent creature in its world, from its perspective; and a human being is the most intelligent creature in its world, from its
perspective. That's just the way our brains operate. Our physical minds are simply products of evolution and day-to-day survival, and our
physical minds are easily deceived by appearances.
But the same consciousness comes through all of us. We all share just one soul.
Suicide is not a function of the Universal Consciousness. Suicide is a function of the physical mind, it's a function of our
intelligence. We can rationalize all sorts of reasons for living or dying or killing one another, and that's what we do, inventing the
concepts of right & wrong, good & evil, love & hate, et cetera, which are just rationalizations for the things we do to each other.
The Universal Consciousness does not know right & wrong, good & evil, nor love & hate. It doesn't care why we do what we do.
It doesn't even care if we commit suicide — you know, go ahead and do it, if you've rationalized yourself into that corner. All you're
doing is closing one of the holes through which the Universal Consciousness shines.
Don't worry, the Creative Force will make more holes through which the Universal Consciousness will shine. There is no judgment of the
actions of your physical mind, except in the physical mind.
