“Mind knows quantity, reality, meanings. But quality—values—is felt. That which is felt is the mutual creation of mind, which knows, and the associated spirit, which reality-izes.” [UB Paper 111, Section 3]
Thought Adjuster: “The birthing of a soul is indeed a very complex process, as it involves both the material and the spiritual realities. The lyrics of a song express that “It only takes a spark to get a fire going.” It is true at so many levels and you could look at the process of fertilizing a soul in a similar manner.
“The soul is conceived through the willing and loving collaboration of the material mind and the supra-material Spirit—your indwelling Divine Fragment. Just as a spark cannot be generated without the match striking the box, the soul spark cannot see the light of day without the match of Spirit finding a point of contact within the human mind.
“When that special moment occurs, a connection is being established between these two progenitors of your embryonic soul. In and by itself, it is another miracle of life, your launching pad toward eternity.
“This process also coordinates meanings with values, thus harmonizing your thinking with your feeling, based on the flawless Divine Tuning Fork, rather than subjecting them to the worldly dissonance.
“Indeed, it only takes a spark to get a fire going, but it takes much more to sustain it in order to enjoy its warmth and light. Your soul fire has to be sustained by the premium combustibles of Truth, Beauty and Goodness. It will then release the pure smoke of Love, that lift your soul heavenward. On the other hand, a soul that is not fed that healthy regimen will become stunted in its growth and the smoke signals it will release will be of a much different nature and could be deciphered as the desperate SOS of soul hanging on for dear life.”
