Without a God-Man, the Mystery of Soul Is Never Revealed

With all that has been said here, or may be said, the mystery of the soul remains a sealed book. No expression can reveal the Truth at the back of the creation. The ascent of the soul to the higher regions is impossible unless one is ushered into those planes. Of course, one may be able to withdraw the spirit currents into the eyes from the body, through Simran or see some Light at times, but there is nothing in there to take or guide him upward. Many were held in these elementary stages for ages and ages, and no help came to guide them up. Some have called this stage the be-all and end-all, but they still linger at the outskirts of grosser matter and in the stronghold of the finer matter. It is here that the help of some competent body is needed to extricate the devotees from the iron-grip of subtle matter. That somebody should be the man who has gone through the different stages of spiritual development and has made a pilgrimage to the region of Pure Spirit, Sat Naam, far beyond the hold of matter.

"He who has known the Sat Purush, is the True Master.
In His company alone a Sikh (devotee) is emancipated.
O Nanak! he will see the Lord and sing praises of the Almighty".........Guru Nanak

The Qualifications of a God-Man:

A True Master cannot be known all at once. He is a God-Man. A God-Man alone can truly know a God-man. He may be described as one who ia brimming over with spirituality far above the life of the senses. He has freed Himself from the various sheaths of grosser and finer matter, and has seen the All-Truthful with His eyes, within and without. He is competent to unfold the spiritual possibilities lying dormant in man. All are provided with the same stuff inside them, like the stuff of a battery already charged. But He is the one who has connected Himself with the great Magnetic Battery of the Lord, and receives direct messages from Him. He is the mouthpiece of the Eternal. We, each one of us, have the same stuff in us, but our batteries are disconnected. We need reconnection so that we may also serve as live batteries and be able to receive messages of the Lord. We need such a One who is Himself connected, and who can also connect our batteries with the Lord. He has in Him the Refulgent Light of the Infinite, and is competent to re-light our extinguished lamps. An unlighted lamp is incompetent to light other lamps. All are spiritually blind, when they come to the feet of a Master. He opens their inner eyes which are latent, and enables them to see the Light of God. He opens their inner ears and makes them hear the sweet Melody of the Divine Music of the Word or Naam.
Be ye perfect as thy Father in Heaven is perfect, said Christ. All are destined to be perfect and in the end they will attain the state of perfection. Whatever we are now is the result of our past acts and thoughts. Our future is being moulded and determined by what we now think and do, but this shaping of our future does not preclude us from receiving help from outside. A fruit tree that ordinarily if left to itself bears fruit in five or six years, would, when treated scientifically with fertilizers etc., bear forth fruit in abundance and more quickly by two or three years. Similarly, the unfoldment of the spiritual life is quickened by the help of a Master. This help is of immense value. Such outside help quickens the inner possibilities of the soul; It awakens the spiritual life in us and leads us to the highest goal in the end.
