Electricity and the Soul

 

What does your soul and electricity have in common? Just as electricity comes from an unseen power source, likewise our souls come from an unseen source.

This source, as with electricity, comes under many titles such as Lord, God, etc. but all are the same name for the Universal All that connects everyone together.

Think of it like this: Electricity comes from a power source far away and passes through an electrical “grid” (network) which in turn powers your home and appliances. Our Creator has sent a “power source” to our grid, which is this Earth to power our bodies; the home of our souls. If you unplug an appliance, the electricity is still there but not in the appliance. The same thought holds true as with the body; our “appliance” for experiencing this Earthly home. When the soul leaves, it is still there but not in the appliance or in this example our physical bodies.  Let’s continue further.

Several homes can be powered by the same grid, yet each home is an individual from the others on that grid. Yet, if there is a problem with one individual home it can and an often time does affect others on the same grid. This can be likened to our bodies and souls as well. If an individual has a problem and this individual is within our “grid” or circle of friends and family, this can affect us and others. It is how our souls are connected. How many times have you known or “felt” that something is amiss with a close friend without them verbally expressing this to you? We are all connected. Yet we each have our differences.

Let’s compare household appliances for an example. Each appliance has a specific function…your microwave cooks or reheats food; your lamps provide light, your telephone is for communication and etc. All of these appliances need electricity to perform their specific functions but none of them can complete the tasks of the other. The same is with us, the “appliances” that the Creator chooses to use to perform certain tasks; whether it is light bearer, feeder of bodies (and souls,) or communicator. None of us could perform these tasks without the source of Power from our Creator. Now let’s bring all of this into perspective…

Your appliances, your home, your neighborhood, and cities all depend upon electricity to function daily, but most of us take for granted that this power source will be there whenever we flip a switch. We believe that it all comes without effort or work because we don’t see or are not aware of the complexities involved with providing this power to each of us. Similarly many of us take for granted that our power source will be there with our “appliances or homes,” the body. We awaken each day to go on with our activities, giving little or no acknowledgement to the Provider of said power source.  How can we maintain a strong connection with our power source? We can do this through prayer and meditation, research and examination and by our thoughts and actions. 

Before we continue, allow me to give a brief definition of the above terminology*:

  1. Prayer- a spoken or unspoken address to God, a deity, or a saint. It may express praise, thanksgiving, confession, or a request for something such as help or somebody's well-being.
  2. Meditation – 1 the emptying of the mind of thoughts, or the concentration of the mind on one thing, in order to aid mental or spiritual development, contemplation, or relaxation 2 the act of thinking about something carefully, calmly, seriously, and for some time, or an instance of such thinking
  3.  Research - methodical investigation into a subject in order to discover facts, to establish or revise a theory, or to develop a plan of action based on the facts discovered
  4. Examination -  the process of looking at and considering something carefully with the idea of learning something
  5. Thoughts -  4 the ability to think and reason
  6. Actions – 1 the process of doing something in order to achieve a purpose

    *definitions provided by Encarta Dictionary (North America)*

     

     

Through prayer we build and maintain a strong connection by addressing the Creator with our concerns, thanks, praises or whatever may be on our minds. Building and cultivating closeness with our Heavenly Father is essential to our successful journey on this earth. Prayer coupled with meditation (2nd definition) creates a “conduit” for spiritual guidance from heavenly hosts. They can and will lead you to the information in which the research and examination takes place; which in turn promotes thoughts and actions that are in harmony with the Universal Creator.

In a sense, we can “plug” into a continual source of power for our souls that will transcend our earthly home.
