The world that we live in is bound by Kaal and has a certain lifespan. It emerges from and retreats back into the formless, endless and ever-unchanging form of the supreme Lord.
Physical creation-the world that we live in, is a many-stepped process and for the purpose of understanding can be broadly categorized into two major parts.
The first part is when the formless creator takes a form and descends into a region called Sach-khand or Satlok. This is a three step process. From the Anami, the supreme Lord descends into Alakh and then into Sach-khand. Sach-khand is the starting point of physical creation. In the Sach-khand, the supreme Lord takes the form a brilliant region of light which sparkles with diamond-like jewels. It is impossible to describe the hues and colours of this place in earthly language. Sach-khand exists eternally. It is a place that does not get destroyed even as multiple universes come to life and get annihilated. In Sach-khand, the Supreme Lord descends and lives as Sat Purush.
The second step of creation happens as, from the body of the Sat Purush emanate brilliant beams of light that go on to create the physical universe. Each atom, of our universe is one such ray and so are all the souls that come and populate this universe.
Thus first the formless one- The Anami Purush – takes on the form of Sat Purush and then the Sat Purush takes on the multi – hued form of physical creation. The logics of creation and blueprints are the same in both the steps, the only difference being that the creation of Satlok is on the large scale and the creation of the universe within that is on a much smaller scale.
The entire physical creation consists of currents that originate from the Sat Purush, enter-twining with each other in different ways to form different aspects of creation. Just as many different types of cloths can be woven out of a few basic threads, the millions of substances that we see in the universe are nothing but permutations and combinations of currents that emanate from the Sat Purush.
For example, the branches and twigs of a certain type of tree would be a certain combination of currents and another different pattern /combination of currents would create the human body. Each one of the threads or nerves is a tube through which the current of the spirit flows. This is the general principle underlying the structure of all the physical bodies in the creation.
In this manner, through the current of the spirit, that the world is created and becomes visible. The most interesting conclusion from this knowledge is that everything-from the atoms of our bodies to our souls-we are all nothing but different combinations of the same currents that emanate from the body of the Sat Purush like beams of light.
Put another way, this means that we are living in a world that consists entirely of the Sat Purush and our souls nothing but soul-beams that emanate from the soul of the Sat Purush.
This beam descends from Satlok in 6 steps. It is important to note here that since this is the region of creation / annihilation, therefore it comes under the purview of Kaal. Kaal is the timekeeper and gatekeeper, who is given the charge of keeping creation and destruction going as per the grand design.
As the beams descends from Satlok, they steps down through three steps or regions. These are the regions of Bhanwar Gufaa, Mahashunya (bhava sagar) and Shunya. Collectively these three steps come under the purview of Mahakaal which is also known as the region of the positive force of Kaal. The beams then further descend through the next three steps into the physical body, which consist of Dasham Dwar (the top of the head), the region of Trikuti and that of the Jyoti Niranjan. Collectively these three steps are called the region of Negative force of Kaal. Below this lies the regions that constitute the physical body and which go down from Sahas – dal – kamal, third eye and then to the 9 gates of the physical body down to the base of the spine.
This is an explanation of how the Anami, which is formless, first materializes as the Sat Purush-Our father, who then from his own body, creates our physical body and the entirety of our universe. The Sat Purush then sends sparkles of his own self as individual soul-beams to reside in every pore of this universe.
This knowledge when understood and believed by us-the individual soul-beams, opens the doorways for the return journey since we now know the way. All we have to do is to realize this eternal truth and climb back to the home of our father.
