SPIRITUALITY AND SORCERY
Question: The incidents reported by those who practiced the exercises of telepathy mostly pertaining to meetings with noble spirits and visiting the holy places. Few have also reported about their encounters with extraterrestrial creatures. But no one has reported meetings with Satan or evil spirits. Although these are also the creatures that belong to unseen realm. Kindly explain this for the benefit of the students.
Answer: Normally there are two different approaches regarding the learning of any science including telepathy, which is no exception to this. One is termed as divine and other is the evil approach. If the knowledge is learnt with constructive and positive intentions then it becomes a divine power. If the knowledge is acquired with destructive and negative designs then certainly it is evil. Construction and creativity are acts of divinity and the destruction and evilness are the demoniac acts. In fact, there are two types of groups of people. One with a constructive approach and the other with the destructive approach. Thinking approaches of both are different and opposite to each other. The words used to activate these two types of thinking approaches are also different. The occult sciences when they are learnt with destructive intentions and ambitions are called sorcery. The words practiced in their evil arts and witchcraft are like ‘Deevah’ and ‘Kaliwah’ These are presenutic words used by the people of the righteous group, up to the times of Noah were equivalent to the word Allah and Illalah. After Noah the words ‘Deevah’ and ‘Kaliwah’ were declared as repealed and the words ‘MM and ‘Tamkhiyah’ were introduced. The people of the righteous approaches adopted the change but the people with the destructive approaches refused to acknowledge the change and the repealed words were adopted by the sorcerers. Then many centuries before Abraham the words Allah and Illallah were declared to be the words of the righteous people and the ‘Tamkhah’ and ‘Tamkhiyah’ were repealed and since then these are the declared words for the people of right approaches. But the sorcerers and witches adopted these revoked words to practice their evil deeds by activating their destructive thinking.
In the Holy Quran the two different approaches of the knowledge have been defmed in the story of Moses. When Moses visited Pharaoh as the messenger of the Divinity. Pharaoh considering the miracles of Moses as acts of magic and sorcery declared him a wizard and invited him to contest against the magicians of the country. The day was set and both the parties were made to face each other. On the one side there were Moses and Aaron and on the other the big magicians of the country. The magicians threw their ropes and sticks which transformed into snakes and dragons. To match their demoniac activities Moses, according to the Elohistic inspiration, put his staff on the ground and it took the shape of a dragon and consumed all the magic snakes.
Here the most interesting thing is to note that when the magicians threw their ropes and sticks they were transformed into snakes and when Moses put down his staff that too converted into a dragon. Then what was the difference in the act of Moses and the magicians. The main difference was that the snakes and dragons produced by the magician
were swallowed up by one of M0598i TtW po^r of tfi? Knowledge of Moses had outclassed the Knowledge of the sorcerers and they acknowledged it spontaneously.
The contest, as reported in the holy book between Moses and the sorcerers, is an elaborate explanation of the knowledge of divinity and that of necromancy. The sorcerers were trying to please their god for the material benefits whereas Moses was doing it to please his Lord not for any material gains. The mission of Moses was to please God and to serve mankind. His constructive approach enabled him to overpower the demoniacal knowledge of the sorcerers. His knowledge was a source of cognition of the Lord creator. All the prophetic knowledge is divine and ultimately leads towards the Creator of the worlds.
We are required to seek earnestly the knowledge of the prophets contained in the holy books and should avoid the knowledge based on sorcery and evilness for the simplest of all the reasons that the former is more powerful and more dominating than the others. Any knowledge based on selfishness and motivated for destructive purposes neither benefits the person learning it nor is of any use to his fellow beings. The knowledge based on the teachings of the prophets is the knowledge which not only benefits the learner but is useful in serving the fellow beings. Man who does not indulge in any destructive activities enjoys the divine power and ultimately raises above the level of the animal life to finally cognize the divine and ultimate reality.
All that we have presented in this book is in accordance with the approach and thinking pattern of prophets and their disciple auliyas since before experiencing the reported incidents a constructive pattern had taken its shape in the minds of the students of telepathy therefore all that was observed was according to that pattern. Had this knowledge been acquired with
an evil approach it would have become sorcery instead of spirituality. From Abraham to Moses and from Christ to Muhammad (PBUH), it had been the teachings of all the prophets that man should be saved from evil forces and should cognize himself after acquainting himself with the divine forces, because the Divine force and right thinking approach is construction whereas the evil powers and sorcery is another name for destruction, brutality, cruelty and inflicting miseries on mankind.
METHOD OF INFLUENCING TELEPATHICALLY
According to the saying of Allah every creation is dihedral and bifoldcd. One side remains manifested and dominating and the other remains hidden and suppressed.
Man Is compounded with dihedrals. Male and female, man and woman, father and mother.
Man (Male), according to te law of Croauons, is also dihedral and the woman (female), too, is dihedral. There is a man hidden in every woman and a woman is hiding in every man.
Had Eve not been present in Adam, her birth could not have possibly taken place. Second example is the birth of Christ from Mary. Thus every individual is two folded duplex. One fold is manifested and predominant and the other remains hidden and suppressed. Man or woman both are dihedrals in this respects each with one side manifested and the other immanent one. The manifested side of a woman is exhibited before us in the form of a woman but her inner side remains invisible. Similarly the man’s manifested side remains hidden. It is therefore manifested side of the man which appears as a man and the woman appearing as woman is the manifested side of the woman. The opposite inner feminine side is enfolded in the manifested side of the man and the opposite inner masculine side of a woman is enwrapped in her manifested feminine side. The law of the Sex Appeal and reproduction is based upon these very two sides. Since the inner man of the woman is dominated therefore he longs to adopt the predominant side of a man before him and wishes desperately to absorb in it for completion and perfection of his self. Similarly the hidden woman in a man is incomplete and dominated therefore ‘she’ also longs to embrace the manifested woman for her completion. This means that the sex appeal is not present in the man or woman before us but exists because of the longing for completion of the hidden woman or man in them.
This is what generally is called sex Appeal. Cases of change in sex are commonly observed by us. This happens because the stimulus of the immanent side becomes so intense and predominant that the stimuli of the manifested side became paralyzed and suspended. It happens when the inner manifested masculine side and the manifested side of the man becomes dominated and suppressed and consequently the man is transformed into a woman. And when, the stimuli of the manifested side of the woman are over powered by the inner man of hers, she changes into a man.
This formula of creation is equally valid in other fields of life. For instance let us study two men. One of them is sick and the other is healthy. It means sickness is dominating in the sick person and the healthy side remains suppressed. Similarly in healthy person the health is predominating and the sickness is lying hidden and suppressed. And whenever the sick side of a man overpowers the healthy side man falls ill or when the healthy side over-powers the manifested sick side of the person he becomes healthy.
There is a person who is happy and prosperous opposite to him the other person is in distress and worried. According to the laws of creation the circumstances are also of two types, or to say bifolded. One fold is termed as peace and calmness the other is called worriness and distress. If that side of circumstances known as distress over-powers the
peaceful side of the circumstances the circumstances turns to be miserable but if a man through his right approach of thinking and spiritual power could dominate and over power the bad circumstances then peace and tranquility starts prevailing in one’s life.
FORMULA: All that is existing in the universe is either confined in circle or triangle. There does not exist any tiling, in this planet earth or the sky, which could be declared an exception to this law. For some creatures the triangle is dominant and for some, the circle. This world of ours, in sufistic terms known as the phenomenal Realm, is dominated by triangle.
It has been made very clear in the previous chapters that every thing existing on earth is kinetic, moving, breathing and alive. This is altogether a different thing whether we consider it alive or not, for instance, the mountains and hills.
According to the laws of nature and creative formulae the mountains are also a creation with conscious. They too breath, are bom and grow. But because of the formula of the creation and growth of mountains appear to be static; Man’s breathing rate is 18-20 breaths per minute, Whereas one breath of a mountain takes a duration of fifteen minutes. The breathing rate of every species is differently fixed.
The other important and noteworthy law is that everything worthy of its existence has a definite form and shape. Man sometimes experiences happiness and some times sadness. At times he is sick and at times he is healthy. When we observe these two status through our innate eye we find both of them having special features and distinctive forms. Similar is the case of disease. Each disease has its specific form and shape. Typhoid had its own peculiar features. Chicken-pox has its own shape and even cancer has its own certain specific features. The law relating to that has been elaborately explained in the book “Light and color therapy” Just as one man can communicate with another person after having telepathic contact with him, similarly the diseases can also to contacted telepathically and can be requested to release the patient. All the diseases respond positively and the patients are cured. For instance, if someone has a headache. You concentratively focus your attention on headache. One of the two things will possibly happen either the shape of headache or its silhouette will appear before your vision. If now you will suggest to it to disappear. It will disappear after accepting your suggestion. In this way you can treat any disease and cure the patients provided the disease is not one of the authoritative diseases.
Yes, diseases are also authoritative, and one of such is cancer.
Curing Cancer Telepathically
Cancer damages the blood stream; the mechanism of its action is that the electric current starts flowing in such a manner that the affected part does not remain its passage any longer. This renders it lifeless. This situation becomes responsible for production of very thin round worms in that part of the body which is affected by cancer. This worm in fact, is a hole which consume the
electric current. The electric current responsible for the life of the organs is consumed by these tiny holes depriving the organ from the life stream flowing in the body as electric current.
Cancer, as stated above, is one of the authoritative diseases. It has senses. It hears. If it is contacted telepathically and is imploringly suggested, when the patient is sleeping and you are alone, that you are very kind, this patient is in great distress, please forgive him etc. Then taking the friendly sentiments of yours into consideration it would leave the patient.
Close your right nostril with the thumb of your right hand after sitting in a relaxed posture.
Inhale through your left nostril for 10 seconds. Hold your breath for 30 seconds after closing left nostril with small finger of the right hand.
After 30 seconds remove the thumb from the right nostril and exhale through it for 10 seconds. Now inhale through the same nostril for 10 seconds and hold your breath for 30 seconds by closing it with the thumb. Exhale through left nostril for 10 seconds after removing the small finger. This makes it one cycle. This exercise is to be done 5 cycles early in the morning and 10 cycles in the evening before going to bed. This exercise would yield the best results if it is done on empty stomach in an open airy place.
All those students who are practicing these exercises are advised to have their dinner early in the evening. There must be a gap of at least three hours between the dinner and the exercise i.e. the exercises should be done three hours after taking the meal.
After this exercise of breathing sit in a relaxing posture for Muraqbah. Blind-fold your eyes with black downy cloth in such a manner that eyeballs should remain under a constant but mild pressure. The cloth is not to ^ hurting the eyes. Just a slight pressure barring the movement of the eyeballs is required, Now imagine that the brain of left hand side is rotating anti-clock-wise.
During this exercise it usually happens that one starts moving his body along. See to it that head should not be moving during this exercise. This exercise is to be practiced once in the morning after breathing exercise in the morning and once at night each time for at least fifteen minutes.
Besides doing this exercise select a person with a purged mind having close intimacy with you. Get fifty cubes of soft wood like that of dices prepared. After painting these cubes with blue color get Nos.l to 50 written on the sides of these cubes. Each dice is to bear only one digit on all six sides, i.e. one dices is to have digit 1 on all its six sides and the other is to have digit 2 and so on the fiftieth dice is to have 50 written on all its sides.
Divide these dices amongst yourself i.e. each one is to have 25 dices each.
Sit across a table with a partition of hardboard or wood between you so that you should not be seen by the other partner. Both to have a note-book and pen each at hand.
Now one of you is to think about a number in his mind and to suggest it mentally to the other to throw dice bearing the same. The number thought is to be noted in the note-book. The other partner would attempt to perceive the suggested number and would throw the dice bearing the number perceived and would note this number in his note-book. Now the other partner would suggest a number telepathically and the other would attempt to perceive the suggestion and throw the dice of the perceived number.
Thus turn by turn both would throw the 25 dices each and then they would compare the notes to ascertain that how much they were guided by their minds, i.e. how many dices were thrown according to the suggestions given and perceived.
This exercise is to be done two times in 24 hours for duration of fifteen minutes. And it is to be continued till the rate of accuracy in throwing the suggested dices reaches 75% i.e. 19 dices out of 25 are thrown according to the telepathically suggested numbers.
EXPERIENCES DURING THE COURSE OF 6TH LESSON
I started performing Muraqbah as usual. I successfully envisioned that there is a bright point shining like a star at my navel. Suddenly this point moved and started rotating anti-clockwise. It could be exemplified with a burning condescent stick rotated by children. The only difference was that from the burning candescent stick sparks fall whereas from this point rays were emitting and these scattering rays were encircling the world.
Then it transpired that every creature existing on earth has similar bright point and the rays of one point are inter-changing with the similar points of every other creature, with further absorption in Muraqbah my mind was able to see that rays from the bright points of other creatures are absorbing into the point of my navel.”
“Then this bright point started growing bigger and bigger finally it converted into a T.V. like screen. The reflection of the existents started appearing on it. Initially
it was very dim but gradually it became so clear that I saw all the scenes of nature just as if I was watching a movie film.”
“I was so lost in this delightful observation that I became oblivious of my own existence. I found the bright point of a tree is inviting my attention and then that tree started talking to me. It told me about its genus and ancestors who had grown billions of years ago. Then the sparkling point of a mountain began to converse with me, It informed me that it was also bom and grew like other creatures. The only difference is that for them time and space do not have the same values as these have for otherCfCatUrflS. Their growth rate is very slow. If a tree matures in five years for them maturity conies in thousands of years, when 1 inquired about the reason. It stated that their breathing rate is different. Their one breath takes fifteen minutes anil for this reason their growth takes so long.”
Name withheld on request, Lahore:
Practiced the exercise of sixth lesson after mid-night. I witnessed mat I am an encasing shell made of glass. In this encasing six bright bulbs are fixed. One of the bulbs which was the most bright is fixed at my navel. It had countless thin wires each one tied with one creature of the universe. It seemed that this bulb was the hand of the puppeteer. When these strings move, various creatures appear before our eyes. I felt frightened to see an animal resembling a mongoose. This was so huge that it appeared to be a mountain at first sight. There were many large elephants wandering on earth. This frightening animal swallowed one elephant before my eyes just as a fish is caught and swallowed by crocodile, It was such an awesome scene that I couldn’t continue with my Muraqbah.”
N. Akhtar from Sargodha writes:
“I have been doing the exercise of sixth lesson for the last forty days. During first ten days
nothing could be sighted. I felt my head very heavy. Pressure was on the left side of the head. With splitting headache. When the pain grew intolerable I according to your instructions started taking fruit juice after sweetening them with sugar three times a day.”
“One day in that painful condition I unintentionally went to a park where I sat near a pool and was staring into space when a light flashed in my mird. It was so bright that my eyes were dazzled and I saw with open eyes that a whole beam of light rays, like those of sunrays, is flowing from my navel point. It created quite a scene for me when I directed fishes of the pond with this intention that all the fish should appear on the surface of the pond. The fish did accordingly and came to the surface. Then I desired that half of them should remain on the surface and half should go down. This was also obeyed and acted upon by the fish. Then I directed those rays towards a rose flower wishing it to turn white. The petals of the flower did grow white. But to my grief the flower wilted and withered away.”
Warning: All the students of metaphysical sciences should refrain from doing anything destructive. Directing the fishes to come on the surface and changing the color of rose are indicative of destructiveness.
The metaphysical sciences are taught so that one could serve mankind and the creatures of Allah after equipping oneself with the latent potentialities of his inner self.
We have faith and believe that Allah, the Almighty has created everything in a constructive way. And to form the same pattern of constructive thinking approach we have suggested these lessons which are in strict concordance with the spirituality testified by the Book of Allah and by so many messengers of God.
Nobody having a destructive mind is allowed to make use of this book because the destructive deeds would be harmful for him only.
SIXTH LESSON OF
It has been made elaborately clear in the previous chapters and lessons that man, in fact, is light. This light or the current has been named as wave by the scientists. According to them all the sentiments, emotions and the urges responsible for maintenance of life are, in
fact, compounded combinations of waves.
The spiritual scientists have divided these waves into two groups. Simple waves and compound waves. The compound wave is responsible for maintaining the material body. This wave creates elements generally known as Fire, Water, Earth and Air. This wave confines man in time and space. In this state everything becomes a veil for him so much so that even a thin paper can hinder his vision like a drawn veil on his eyes. It is the nature of this wave that it observes everything on a screen.
Man constructs house for his safety. He himself erects walls and installs door in these walls. He considers himself safe when the doors are closed. If closely observed and noticed we would conclude that this action in itself is a state of incarceration and confinement. That is, man has declared a confined life as safe. He has incarcerated himself in his own invented and devised things. The urges of comfort and luxury are also indicative of confined abilities.
Whereas contrary to this the simple wave likes the life liberated from confined senses. The very first movement of this wave releases us from the clutches of spatio-temporal restrictions. No veil or screen can hinder this wave. It is fully aware of the supreme heights of heaven and the derogatory position of the earth. This wave not only enjoys the knowledge of the Signs of Allah, the most Exalted, spread on earth but has the honor of meeting the angels and conversing with them
We remain alive between these two waves, two lights or two circles. Whichever circle or wave
becomes predominating we experience the states corresponding to it.
These two circles are, in fact, two generators having countless wires through which the current is supplied to our whole nervous systems continuously.
The First generator is situated at our navel point. This is actually a sort of sub-station having its feeding from the second generator i.e. the simple waves.
Just as for learning counting we have to acquaint ourselves with number one. Similarly for learning the knowledge of transference of thoughts we have to have knowledge about the compound wave i.e. the first generator.
For knowing how the first generator works, the following exercise is suggested.
Close your right nostril with the thumb of your right hand after sitting in a relaxed posture.
Inhale through your left nostril for 5 seconds. Hold your breath for 15 seconds after closing left nostril with the small finger of the right hand.
After 15 seconds remove the thumb from the right nostril and exhale through it for 5 seconds. Now inhale through the same nostril for 5 seconds and hold your breath for 15 seconds closing it with the thumb. Exhale through left nostril for 5 seconds after removing the small finger. This makes it one cycle. Complete 15 cycles.
Timings: This exercise is also done once in the morning and once in the evening before going to bed. This exercise would yield the best results if it is done on an empty stomach in an open and airy place.
Note: All those students who are practicing these exercises are advised to have their dinner early in the evening. There must be a gap of at least three hours between the dinner and the exercise, i.e. the exercise should be done three hours after taking the meal.
After the breathing exercise perform the following Muraqbah, You have to imagine in this Muraqbah that there is a bright radiating point at your navel point. Rays are emitting from it and arc absorbing in the surrounding. Beasts and birds, men and animals, east and west, north and south, earth and sky, everything existing in our surroundings is absorbing the rays emitted from this bright point. This Muraqbah is to be done for fifteen minutes at the least.
Aspiring students of telepathy are once again cautioned that no one should start these exercises from the middle- It is essential to take up the first exercise first. It is also necessary that these exercises should be practiced under the supervision and guidance of an expert spiritualist and master of occult sciences. And his instructions should be followed to the letter.
FIFTH LESSON OF
Take an 18″ X 18″ piece of shining white rexine leather and fix it on a hard board of wood, ply or
thick card of same sue with the help of small nails in such a manner that no wrinkle should be left there on the rexine. Exactly in the center of this fixed-on-board rexine draw two concentric circles. One with a radius of one inch and the other with a radius of six inches. Now paint the area between the lines of these two circles with shining dark black color. (It would be better if enamelpuint of black color could be u^cd), This would give you a black circle of five inches thickness leaving a small circle of one inch radius in the center.
This board is to be placed at a distance of four feet at such an adequate height where the white circle becomes parallel to your sight when you are sitting in front of it, the board is to be erected vertically and there must not be any slant in it.
After preparing this arrangement, before starting with the exercise of circle-gazing do the breathing exercise as follows.
Close your right nostril with the thumb of your right hand after sitting in a relaxed posture.
Inhale through your left nostril for 10 seconds. Hold your breath for 5 seconds after closing left nostril with the small finger of the right hand.
After 5 seconds remove the thumb from the right nostril and exhale through it for 10 seconds. Now inhale through the same nostril for 10 seconds and hold your breath for 5 seconds by closing it with the thumb. Exhale through left nostril for 10 seconds after removing the small finger. This makes it one cycle. Complete 10 such cycles. This exercise is also to be done once in the morning and once in the evening before going to bed. This exercise would yield the best results if it is done on an empty stomach in an open and airy
All those students who are practicing these exercises arc advised to have their dinner early in the evening. There must be a gap of at least three hours between the dinner and the exercise i.e. the exercise should be done three hours after you have taken the meal.
After this breathing exercise Practice for 10 to 15 minutes the exercise of gazing at the prepared circle.
Initially you may have a sensation of irritation in your eyes and they may water blurring your vision but you are not to blink your eyes when you are doing this exercise. You have to keep your neck aligned with your back bone which is also to be kept straight. Till acquiring perfection and proficiency in this CAcrcisc if your eyes are blinked don’t bother much and continue with your exercise. Don’t force yourself too much in controlling the blinking of eyes. You shall steadily acquire an unblinking-gaze with the passage of time.
After this exercise you have to perform the following:
In this Muraqbah you have to imagine with closed eyes that there is a Jar of glass. The things existing on the earth are depicted and designed on the inner surface of the jar in the form of impressions.
Note! The exercise or circle-gazing is to be done only once in twenty four hours at night. The Muraqbah of Jar is to be done twice. Once early in the morning before sunrise and once late in the night before going to bed.
Care should be exercised that circle gazing is to be done in enough light and the light should be falling directly on the board from behind you. It should never be done that the light is thrown on the board by means of a table lamp specially arranged for this purpose.
The Muraqbah is anyhow to be performed in darkness as usual.
DOMAIN OF THOUGHTS
Shahcen from Kohat writes:
Question: The experiences of students of telepathy are sufficient to prove and consolidate the
Relation of this knowledge with reality but when the ratio of success is taken into consideration it creates suspicion that this is only an artifice of imaginations of the students, that is, when one autosuggest concentrative that this is to be sighted and felt then the same is envisioned would you like to tell us something in this regard?
Answer: As far as the imaginative power is concerned no one can deny this fact that the whole life is a convoluted network of thoughts. His divine Grace Qalander Baba Auliya in his remarkable book “Loh-o-Qalam” has termed the creation made from this network as Aura (Nasma) and has said that jinni are created from simple Aura and man and the world of man is the resulting outcome of compounded Aura. This thing has been defined by him by drawing a sketch in that book.
The waves that give us life are responsible for the production of all demands of life. When the inbuilt antenna of our brain receives these waves they arc displayed in shape of thoughts and emotions. Transmission of thoughts is the life. Considering the thoughts and imaginative power as something ineffective and useless is nothing but ignorance of the highest order.
Let us perform an experiment. Lie down on your bed comfortably and let your body relax. Now concentratively focus your attention on this thought that your feet are getting warm. Then let this imagination occur to you that waves are falling continuously on your head and are discharging through your feet after leaving their warmth behind to warm your feet. The moment your attention will be focused undistractedly on this thought you will be surprised to note that your feet actually start getting warm and persistence of this thought would take you to that point where you will be feeling that the heat is becoming unbearable for the soles of your feet.
The same experiment can be done by imagining cold wave. The concentration of thoughts would make your feet so cold that it would be felt as if your feet have been chilled with ice.
The act of over looking or dismissing the idea of acknowledging the metaphysical sciences by saying that these are all the resulting product of imaginations and the imaginative power, in fact, amounts to an escape from reality. And this is the approach of those who do not possess the initiatives and driving force to work.
What are our emotions, feelings, sensations and urges of life like certitude, sacrifice, hatred, grudge, hunger, and thirst after all?
These are all changing forms of thoughts initially perceived in the form of an imagination. If we are not informed by our mind about appetite as a thought of eating something we shall never be able to pay attention to food.
This whole universe is a concordant and harmonious film of thoughts and imaginations.
LAW OF NATURE
Question: Can the abilities and faculties mentioned in telepathy and other metaphysical sciences be acquired by any one who is desirous of equipping oneself with these faculties or this knowledge is particular for only those who enjoy some special capabilities and extra-ordinary power of mind?
Answer: When we happen to hear about a person who can converse telepathically with people residing at far-off distances, can hypnotize somehow, can cure a sick person merely by the touch of his hand, can walk through solid brick walls or can read the mind, it spontaneously comes to our mind that some supernatural abilities have been endowed to that person. Similar is the case with those enigmatic and perplexing phenomena for which the human Intellect cannot find any befitting solution. For instance, the demonstration of healing powers through praying for someone or foretelling the future by interpretation of dreams.
Countless laws of nature are operative in this universe of ours. Only a few of them are known to us so far and many of them are still mysteries to us, because of our improper approach towards them. Any phenomenon which is based on laws about which our knowledge is imperfect is readily pronounced as supernatural only because of our ignorance about the laws operative behind such phenomenon.
Psychologically and physiologically man is the most complex and intricate of all the creatures of the universe. Sometimes the activities demonstrated by him appear to be so strange and mysterious that they could very easily be termed as supernatural activities. This invites our considered deliberation as to what these supernatural abilities are and how we can put them to our use after harnessing them according to our will and wish. Contemplation in this regard leads us to conclude that nothing can be above and beyond the range of the laws of nature therefore, for those who manage to have the cognition of the laws of nature the word supernatural is merely an indication of the level of our comprehension of nature and the understanding of its laws. Every phenomenon of nature whether it is on the ordinary level or at the preternatural level is the manifestation of one or the other law of nature. Nothing could rise above the laws of nature.
After settling on this point that nothing is preternatural in this universe and every thing is manifested according to certain laws we have to consider how we can have a developed cognition of these laws and how the abilities like foreseeing, foretelling, clairvoyance, reading of minds, etc. could be put to use. It would be interesting to note that every one of us is
endowed with these qualities and we can leam the use of latent abilities of mind and soul through certain exercises. Practice can enable us to activate the latent potentialities and we can leam to cure and heal the sick by transferring our healthy thoughts to them. If we are desirous of learning the use of any of those faculties which are ordinarily called the supernatural, we are only required to seek the guidance of teachers versed with the science of these potentialities. Teachers of these sciences tell us that all these abilities, in fact, belong to the Soul and not to the physical mind or the body of man. Therefore, they teach us that how can we have access to the undiscovered potentialities of Ae soul. But before prescribing any exercise they prefer to edify the moral character and the mental capabilities of the one who wants to leam the use of these abilities.
It is to be remembered that the character of a person plays a key role in one’s advancement in any field. If one has a strong moral character oAe’s success can be easily guaranteed. Before taking any decision about learning any of these sciences, one ought to check whether he is steadfast enough to withstand the difficulties and that how does he intend to use the sought abilities, i.e. he wants to use them for constructive and positive purposes or not. Nature bestows extraordinary powers and abilities only upon those who know their proper use. If one does not possess a strong moral character, he can very easily indulge in misuse of such powers. Any one who acquires ability of an extraordinary nature and does not use it for the benefit of mankind, he is prone to start abusing it in a manner which is against humanity. Therefore, it must be kept in mind that whosoever intends to follow the metaphysical sciences should endure and have the determination to improve his personal well-being and to help others by using the abilities bestowed upon him.
