The mind itself is the soul guide, if it is directed on the right direction. The seeking mind which rectifies the seeking base from five elements to no-element then at once it becomes free from the bondage of viewing and judging the worldview from the physical point of view.

Agrees but...

My terms for our guide is "life-force-mind combination" or as it is call in social cycles, "the ghost", and by gurus, the "I". However, there are no "right" nor "wrong" directions, the cycles of our lives are flowing all in the same direction. It is the distance behind us another is which makes it appear they are in the "wrong" direction. That very statement is "the bondage of viewing and judging the world view from the physical point of view".

The way it works is, when one is near completing their earthly sojourn they see "ghosts" who are only leaving the entry/exit point to earth. While seeing them going away from the entry/exit point it appears they are going the "wrong" way. However, they have to go completely around the whole circle which is so large that it appears flat to the obbserver.

The mind itself is the soul guide...

We must understand the difference between what is the 'Mind' and 'Soul'..... Mind is called Chitta and is made up of three components which are Manas, Buddhi and Ahamkhar, which is known as Antahkarana and is made up of prakriti, called matter.

Soul is called atma, purusha, spirit, pure consciousness, Self and is no different from Brahman, the divine Self, the Absolute.

The mind in man, is not an organ as such, but consist of the three shaktis of manas, buddhi and ahamkar. When the mind is in a turmoil, agitated, disturbed, it is the manas operating along with our desire, iccha which is the we have both the manas and the ahamkar there.. Now when the mind works with logic, complete understanding, tranquil, then the buddhi operates with ahamkar. The ahamkar is difficult to remove, as we operate in this world through the Iness and Mine point of view. When our minds becomes shuddi or pure with our sadhana, and we have been able to take care of our gunas, we tend to see things from the Buddhi which reflects the pure Self and over time we see the oneness in the diversity of names and forms..
