When a child I was taught that our soul resided
inside of our human body. Only tonight I had an experience that
suggested that our soul is outside our physical realm and that the
soul shape-shifts to experience our thoughts ahead of our creations.
Then I reflected on reading about the soul being the connecting point,
or the point between physical and spiritual and so my experience of
the soul outside of my physicality could make sense. My question is,
where do you see the soul residing in relationship to the body?

Good answers from the group on this and thanks Larry for your comments on my books. I’ll add my two cents.

Part of the confusion comes from the fact that, in our society, the word “soul” is used very loosely with many different applications. Often times the astral body or even the etheric double is called the soul, but these are only vehicles and not soul.

Technically soul energy is that which is created through the interplay of spirit and matter, or the formless worlds and the worlds of form.

The term “the soul’ can refer to the Solar Angel but can have wider applications. It can refer to our consciousness ascending to soul contact, meaning that the consciousness centers on soul energy which opens the door to all worlds. When this door is open then the consciousness can be outside the body as you describe – or it can be within the body.

Every living being has a consciousness that it owes to soul energy and has a certain frequency. Through soul contact any individual can tune into the frequency of any other being. Sometimes we do this without realizing it.

Many times when people think they are contacting the dead when they are merely tuning into the person’s frequency. When an entity’s frequency is contacted then one can receive from such frequency – very similar information to that which he would receive from the real person.

For instance, a psychic could tune into Napoleon’s frequency and channel him even if he is reborn in the physical and in his new identity and frequency is communicating nothing to the medium. Even so his old frequency and identity remains embedded in soul energy.

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1.  “The soul is represented by that point of invisible interplay between spirit and matter which is neither spirit nor matter, neither form nor formless.”

2.  “The union of matter and spirit makes soul possible, but Soul itself is the interplay of body and spirit rather than the union, and that interplay is within us all no matter what our degree of evolution.”

3.  “The word “soul” is used very loosely by various groups. In the teachings of the Masters it is basically used two ways: The Higher Self sometimes called the Solar Angel, which is linked as an atom in the body of the oversoul of humanity; The point where spirit touches matter. This is the point that some have referred to as being beyond dualities. This, however, is not a dwelling place, but a doorway to the higher worlds.”

4.  “The soul only recognizes that which is true and does not see error. Therefore the soul only vibrates for us when truth is spoken or presented.”

5.  “One Soul is never out of harmony with another Soul.”

6.  “Whether or not I am convinced of a certain truth carries little weight for the true seeker; he still must find out all truth for himself through his own soul.”

8.  “The current creative life, the human, is the soul of the universe, the mediator between God and matter.”

13.  “The only way a union of any two or more people can take place is if the two follow the will of the God Within, or the Soul, which never disagrees with itself.”

14.  “There is always a point of truth that is seen by the eyes of the soul that will bring oneness to any group if they are willing to humble themselves, rise above pride of the ego and seek the God Within.”

15.  “Prayer opens the door of the soul to gain access to the world of Spirit, meditation takes you through that door so you can receive the Spirit, and contemplation brings the things of the Spirit down into the practical realm of the material world.”

16.  “If we cannot agree in the soul we must go by the evidence, logic and reason. This will lead us to the soul and an eventual understanding of the greater whole.”

17.  “Now remember that soul energy itself is not God or the Higher Self, but is a door to the higher realm.”

18.  “All steps toward the liberation of the soul are proceeded by a greater sense and power of freedom in the life of the disciple.”

19.  “Here on earth we have individualized consciousness and we seem to be separate souls. But in the world of pure soul, there is only one oversoul for all humanity; and you and I are parts of that whole.”

20.  “The doors of the soul cannot stay shut for long to he who loves the truth.”

21.  “The personality resists the soul until it suffers defeat after defeat in its purposes and finally will yield through acquiescence.”

22.  “He who discovers the door of the soul discovers the way to recognize truth and is no longer deceived and thus becomes free.”

23.  “All decision in harmony with soul brings the power of soul.”

24.  “If the seeking attitude and the Decision to do so is maintained then that is a major event in the life of the soul.”

25.  “In looking at the higher worlds, from a universal angle, all higher contacts come through the soul.”

26.  “Although I have received many comments of how the teachings and the Song of the 144,000 have helped individuals in their personal lives, the teachings are not designed as self help aids. They are designed to lead the student to the soul and when he arrives there he will have all the help he needs.”

27.  “Unfortunately advice can only go so far in personal situations because our own souls often have lessons in mind for us to learn from which there is no escape.”

28.  “As far as the soul goes nothing can harm it.”

29.  “When we become one with the soul then our attention is shifted toward the greater light of the Monad and when this shift is made the soul becomes as darkness and higher vision is obtained when the greater light shines ON the light of the soul.”

37.  “When one then makes a definite decision to serve self at the expense of the soul then a very significant event happens.”

43.  “Soul is the contact of the monadic energy with matter.”

44.  “Our soul is our personal book of life that stores cause and drives us to work out effects until all is in balance and we return to our source for the great rest of the Lord of Sabboath.”

45.  “The Soul waits until we have some group consciousness before it will even work directly with us.”

46.  “A soul confirmation always points you in the right direction to enhance your spiritual evolution, but it does not reveal to you all the knowledge and principles around the subject you may be contemplating.”

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual and Metaphysical Quotes

From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1  I cannot put too much stress on recognizing and overcoming illusion. Until this occurs in the life of a disciple he or she is not trusted by the Brotherhood of Light for they realize an illusion may yet trip him up.

2  Once you have reached the point where you are totally dedicated to following the highest you know, then illusion must be dispelled or you will become dangerous.

3  The average person loves illusion. He wants to be tricked into believing what he wants to believe and not let the facts get in the way.

4  That’s part of the great plan. Give us all the illusion that we can handle until we’re ready to come out of the illusion.

5  To my knowledge the principle of illusion has never been explained so average seekers can understand it, yet it is the final block to full soul contact.

6  The problem is that any illusion we unravel will strike a nerve in about half the people so it is best to use an example that we all at least agree to be against.

7  To find an example of illusion that creates great harm to illustrate its dangers and identify its reality you have to pick on a person of fairly high evolution who furthered the cause of the left hand path and there are not many who are well known that we can choose from.

8  Illusion is logical to those caught in it and the only way to expose it is to understand it.

9  It takes the discriminating mind and intuition to separate the real from the illusion.

10  If we do not practice non-deception then inspired teachings designed to take us out of illusion can lead us further into illusion.

11  A person may have basically overcome Maya in one life and then slip back into its trap in another.

12  Illusion is not resolved by exclusion, but by the revelation of light.

13  The true seeker will never exchange truth for illusion no matter how disturbing.

14  Be open to all possibilities, but remember this. When your foundation truths are challenged the chances are that the challenger is presenting illusion and you should question accordingly.

15  The ways of transforming good intentions into harm through illusion are without number.

16  Illusion is so powerful that it can take even good and decent people along the path of destruction.

17  Illusion cannot be dispelled by mind alone.

18  Often times several people together will see a similar illusion because of their similarity in vibration and expectant outcome.

19  Foundation illusions are very difficult to dispel because they are usually tied in with a mainstream thoughtform which is held by millions.

20  The Dragon itself has no power over man, but can only establish power through illusion.

21  The only way to dispel the foundation illusion is through the intuition and sincere inquiry.

22  The astral world is full of illusion, but also a heaven of sorts and to rise above this illusion one must see through illusion after illusion until the celestial devachan is reached and finally Nirvana as taught by the Buddha. When this is reached the seeker finally sees reality as it is.

23  The only thing which is truly beyond illusion is the third great energy of Purpose from whence Love and Light owe their origination. But even Purpose is not “that which is not,” but that which is not understood.

24  The trouble is that few people are able to look with vision upon the greater reality because their present illusion is comfortable, and they do not wish to have it destroyed.

25  Mental illusions cannot stand in the light of truth.

26  I admit that I often do defend myself when attacked and sometimes counterattack. I try and see myself attacking the illusion rather than the person however.

27  That which is not true can have the illusion of truth, but that is all.

28  There is a certain amount of illusion behind most fears, but there is also great illusion behind most proclamations of love.

29  I would be prone to believe that major illusion would be involved if someone does not believe he would react on a physical level in crisis situations.

30  Physical matter is created on an illusionary principle that must be unfolded rather than undergo fusion to remove the illusion.

31  Deluded or not, we must move ahead following the highest that we know. If we do this with a pure heart, our strength will be as the strength of ten and the fog of our illusions will be lifted; moreover, we will see reality as it is piece by piece.

32  I do not like victimhood because such an idea is illusion and escapism.

33  Celebrities, as a whole, operate in the world of illusion and glamour and act as a fog which hides the light rather than direct the hearts and minds of the masses toward the light.

34  The path out of the illusion is truth.

35  Sure there is a lot of illusion in this world and there are others worlds a lot more permanent and more real in higher realms. We must start here where we are.

36  This world is created on illusionary principles, but the power that created it is real and the experiences we have are real.

37  There are illusionary paradoxes and then there are true paradoxes.

38  One of the most enslaving illusions…is the illusion that God speaks to our authorities instead of the inward authority of the Holy Spirit. It is the illusion that we are to trust the outer authority more than the inward authority. It is the illusion that God is replaced by man and the outer man or woman is another human being just like yourself and no more speaks for God than you do.

39  What makes a terrorist or a dangerous enemy is not anger but illusion.

40  Illusion in a belief system will cause a person to kill his own loved ones, his friends, his countrymen, people who love him and even his own Master as was the case with Judas.

41  All illusion is created by deception.

42  While it is true that there is a time and place for all things, even accusations, it is my observation that those on the side of illusion make many more accusations, including many that are baseless, than the pure in heart. Many not only accuse, but do so with much hatred and vitriolic emotion.

43  If people believe a mistake is a lie then this illusion which is created can lead to separateness, hate and distrust.

44  The mind is captive to illusion and cannot free itself. It is at the mercy of Spirit to free it.

45  If we are dedicated to knowing the truth we will indeed eventually see through all illusion.

The Path

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes

From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1.  “A path to improvement and eventual liberation is always to be found as long we stay aware and pay attention.”

2.  “To inflame and go into battle while proclaiming that you are treading the path of love and peace is inflammatory in itself. “

3.  “Follow the highest that you know, and keep your mind steady in the light.”

4.  “A starting point of harmony of thought between two souls is an important ingredient for progression upon the path.”

5.  “In this world there lies before us at all times two paths. Path one leads to truth and the real world. Path two leads to illusion and deception. Each decision that we make takes us in the direction of one of these paths.”

6.  “The path for us to become one with God and manifest the name within is us for us to take upon ourselves the name of Jesus Christ by committing ourselves to the highest service that we know and then practice the science of BECOMING the highest that you can DECIDE to BECOME.”

7.  “Realize that, as you progress upon the path, every loss is replaced by a gain greater than that which is left behind. The only way to not acquire that gain is to let it slip through your fingers or throw it away.”

8.  “I therefore admonish all true seekers who read these words, to walk the path of light by seeking the light and looking for the light.”

9.  “Pursuing the path to greater works and greater revelation is our focus here and I’m sure Christ would approve.”

10.  “If you find one asking questions requiring independent thought then there is evidence that the person is on the path.”

11.  “Every major success achieved is created by a path paved with failures overcome.”

12.  “Those who go ‘with the flow’ give energy to the pendulum to swing to the extreme of the direction it is heading. On the other hand, those who apply the path of most resistance work to make the pendulum swing the opposite direction so it will again pass over the center point. When it makes that pass a truth is seen.”

13.  “Forced change can produce quick results, but always carries a backlash and the people eventually backtrack and work on finding the correct path.”

14.  “At the end of the Path, ages and ages hence is a pralaya of rest or a point of absolute stillness from our point of view.”

15.  “We must apply the principle of correction on the path, just as we do as we drive down the road in a car.”

16.  “The path of correct use and sharing is difficult indeed.”

17.  “The one farther upon the path understands the beauty of the scenery before him and can relate it to the one behind, but the one behind will not have a full understanding of the beautiful mountains and valleys until he actually gets there.”

18.  “The angle of vision and the problems faced by one progressed upon the path is generally not available to the beginner.”

19.  “Judging progress upon the path can only be done by the individual himself or his inner teacher.”

20.  “If you think you are in motion on the path and progressing toward the light then you are where you should be.”

21.  “When we do find the path and make real progress we will all (as individuals) sense the increase in vibration and we will be able to internally gauge ourselves so long as we keep our focus on the highest that we know.”

22.  “Do we run from the battle because an enemy is in the path? If we did so there would never be a battle and the Lights could not take joy in the victory.”

23.  “Often times when we move into a new step on the path more mistakes than usual are made at first because we are in unfamiliar territory.”

24.  “Many who have not fully developed the mind and are yet centered in the emotions are very good people who are seeking the highest they know and the way of deliverance for them through the maze ahead is to have ‘good shepherds’ to follow who commune through the One Spirit. By this means can one who is yet centered in the emotions make true progress upon the path.”

25.  “Unfortunately many who would follow have not learned to recognize the true voice and are led by the ego of a false shepherd which will indeed lead them off onto strange paths.”

26.  “The wayfarer is on the path of darkness and death if his focused attention is returning to lesser evolution, lesser advancement or lesser light.”

27.  “So, what happens to those few stubborn humans who succeed in reversing themselves on the path? Answer: The lesser lives that make the greater begin to come apart and as they do, the person begins to lose human attributes and take on the characteristics of the next kingdom down which is the animal. The strongest animal lives within him take control of the life until it falls apart. After it falls part then the animal lives revert to the vegetable and finally to the mineral and lastly to a pralaya that lasts many millions of years. The person’s evolution must then begin anew in a far future creation.”

28.  “We are therefore on one of two paths:  (1) The path of Life where Spirit is increasing in power as we share greater union with an increasing number of lives; or (2)  The path of death where the power of Spirit is diminishing and the lesser lives which compose us are in the process of coming apart and unraveling the greater entity.”

29.  “I let no thing control me but my own soul and recommend the same path for all people.”

30.  “To accept God as a being that will not send you to hell is a major step to be taken on the path.”

31.  “The two paths, the line of least and most resistance has more to do with making ourselves in alignment with higher Decision and, or Will and, or Purpose than it does with the flow of energies in connection with the physical and etheric body.”

32.  “He who has the name of the Father in his forehead will only trust a path revealed or confirmed by the God within.”

33.  “An intelligence coming to three paths of equal value will often pick one for reasons that even it did not know in advance.”

34.  “It is the eternal way of things that those who are further upon the path must extend a helping hand to those not so progressed as themselves.”

35.  “Discerning the proper place upon the path and acting accordingly is an invaluable part of discernment and a characteristic of true humility.”

36.  “If two paths lie ahead and a new choice is to be forced upon you then you will always chose the easier path (usually the worst choice) if you have not used conscious projection to see yourself making the decision ahead of time. On the other hand, if you see the two paths approaching and analyze the benefits of the two choices ahead of time and you make the decision before the event occurs, then you will generally have power to follow that pre-made decision when the path approaches, even if the decision is a difficult one.”

37.  “The real challenge is to see the souls of those who may seem to be obstacles in our path.”

38.  “When one truly follows the living principle behind baptism he will enter the path of Spirit as guilt free as a new born baby.”

39.  “When the better path manifests, let go of your investment in the past and choose the new.”

40.  “If you are treading the path of true progress you must earn every step that you take.”

41.  “Those who say the path is effortless are entirely wrong. Standing still is effortless. True progress takes a tremendous struggle – there is no other way.”

42.  “The difficult thing is the overcoming of glamour and illusion so we can see our point on the path correctly, so one does not think he is a Buddha when he is just a beginning seeker.”

43.  “When we make a great effort to progress upon the path a vacuum is created behind is that tries to suck us backward at our weakest moment. If this negative force does not pull us backward it will create an attack when our guard is down at our most vulnerable point.”

44.  “When one puts his attention on seeing that which is true, he is taking the inner right-hand path. His attention on that which is true moves him in the direction of this path and pushes him forward on it to truth after truth, greater light after greater light.”

45.  “When one puts his attention on looking for error, this attention on error moves him toward the left-hand path, and as he moves along this path, he sees error after error, and rarely has any observation of new truth to report.”

46.  “Additional seeking is always necessary – no matter where we think we are upon the Path.”

47.  “As we take a step on the Path the interplay of the polarities is increased and the good and bad around us seem to increase.”

48.  “We often accept and look in the obvious direction until we reach a dead end. Only then does another path appear before our eyes, and only then will we even consider it.”

49.  “To tread the path to be a Master of Wisdom one must be a person who can be trusted and relied upon (Faithful) and his word must be his bond (True).”

50.  “The path to the union through the soul can begin with either agreement or disagreement.”

51.  “Even most of those who believe they have chosen the dark path and have become Satanists, have not yet chosen. Their decisions are dangerous and based on illusion, but they have not yet seen the real choice.”

52.  “Those who are tempted to take the dark path are those who cannot give up an attachment to the ‘flow’ of personality energies.”

53.  “There will come a time in the life(s) of each disciple that he will have to choose one of the paths. Very few on the earth have progressed far enough to make that choice.”

54.  “If you are a servant on the Path and have the capacity and willingness to serve humanity, your questions will sometimes be answered by an advanced unseen entity, and on rare occasions one will be manifested to you.”

55.  “All those who choose either side of the path have gone through much love and service, but even after experiencing the beauty of love and many spiritual experiences from God, the temptation of the left hand path may still be great.”

56.  “The true Inner Voice often guides us in ways we never would have dreamed of on our own and directs in paths we are reluctant, even fearful to pursue.”

57.  “The mission of all seekers is to examine themselves in all honesty and try and discover where he is on the path. If you know where you are, you can become aware of your next step. If you do not know where you are, then your next step will be in the dark. You will have to bump into several dead ends before you again find your true way.”

58.  “Finding your place on the path is extremely difficult for many because the beginning seeker will often think he is on his last life and ascension is just around the corner.”

59.  “The Solar Plexus takes a lot of control no matter where we are on the path.”

60.  “The stimulation of thought along the correct path is in the end very beneficial.”

61.  “As a person progresses by trial and error eventually the fog disperses and his place upon the path becomes clear.”

62.  “The person who is clear about his place upon the path will rarely reveal it to anyone and never publicly.”

63.  “We always have the power to decide to take any path we want.”

64.  “Some on the spiritual path will see the great order among the tiny lives and give credit to the great Universal God, but they see it backwards. It is not the big One Life creating the order as a unit. It is the divided One Life finding pieces of Itself, putting Itself back together.”

65.  “He who has found his true point on the path senses a greater happiness on the horizon.”
