    Soul Transcendence

    Beyond your body, mind, and emotions, there is the Soul. Soul Transcendence is a journey of traveling into and above the consciousness of Soul—into the oneness of God—where you see things in perspective, attune to Spirit, and release karma.

    Soul Transcendence is an active process and a positive state of being. It lights a path for you to become established in Soul consciousness and beyond, where you are freed from creating more karma, and can break the cycle of incarnation.

    Spiritual Exercises

    Spiritual Exercises (also called s.e.’s) are an active meditation technique of holding the mind steady and quieting the emotions by using a spiritual tone or vibration– specifically Hu, Ani Hu, or your initiatory tone– to connect to the energy that flows from God throughout all existence.

    Spiritual Exercises are one of the primary ways that we practice Soul Transcendence and learn to attune to God in MSIA. The time spent doing spiritual exercises is typically divided into periods of chanting and periods of listening. You are listening within for the Sound Current, which is very subtle.

    The Sound Current

    The Sound Current is the basis of all life. It is the audible stream of energy that comes from the heart of God. Once you have tasted or drunk of the waters of the audible life stream, the Sound Current, you can never live without that again. You have set your foot upon the path of returning into the Supreme God.

    The best way to listen to the Sound Current is to draw your attention to one place so that you focus into the intention– then let the intention listen to the Sound. The intention will listen, and it will hear what you need to hear. Once you catch the Sound, don’t chase after it, because your mind will scatter it and then you won’t know what you are listening to.

    Soul Travel

    Soul travel is the process of traveling in Spirit to realms of consciousness other than the physical realm. These are sometimes known as out-of-body experiences. In Soul travel you bypass all the lower levels and go into the Soul body or Soul consciousness. In the Soul body, you have a clearer perception because you are in a clearer state. You see directly, not through illusion.

    People Soul Travel Often

    People Soul travel often; they just may not remember doing it, or they may not know that an experience they have had is actually Soul travel. You may be aware that you leave the body during Spiritual Exercises, right before you go to sleep, or at some other time. When you step out of the physical body into the Soul body, you may feel a tremendous pulling, and if you close your eyes, you may have the impression that the room is rushing away from you, getting smaller and smaller, or larger and larger. It is an unusual feeling, until you get used to it, but it does not have to be a frightening one.

    Soul Travel and Soul Transcendence

    When you do Spiritual Exercises, you practice going in and out of the body. You practice traversing the spiritual realms beyond the physical level. Sometimes you do it unconsciously, and other times you do it with some degree of conscious awareness. The Soul travels so much, and it is not crucial to Soul Transcendence to remember most of these travels. In fact, remembering them can even be a distraction from Soul Transcendence, because in the inner realms of a person’s consciousness, there are “worlds without end”. Knowing all about those inner worlds is not the intention. The intention is doing Soul Transcendence, which is moving above the lower levels, the levels within a person’s consciousness, into the Soul and even higher – into God.

    Soul Awareness Discourses are a course in Soul Transcendence. They are a foundational path for studying in MSIA and provide practical techniques for connecting with Spirit, aligning with the power of your Soul, and living more successfully in the world.

    Each monthly Discourse shares a teaching on Soul Transcendence. The first year course of study includes topics such as Sending the Light, Acceptance, The Law of Cause and Effect, Responsibility, Working Your Ten Percent, Overcoming Discouragement.

    Spiritual in essence, Discourses are not in conflict with any religious beliefs you might hold. In fact, most people find that Discourses support and amplify the experience of whatever path, philosophy, or religion (if any) they choose to follow. Simply put, Discourses are about eternal truths and wisdoms of the heart.

    The Mystical Traveler Consciousness

    The Mystical Traveler Consciousness (often called the Traveler) is the name given to a spiritual consciousness that exists throughout all levels of God’s creation. It resides within each person and is a guide into the higher levels of Spirit– the greater reality of God. John Morton physically “anchors” the Mystical Traveler Consciousness on the planet. And both John and John-Roger, the founder of MSIA, work spiritually with those studying in MSIA.

    The work of the Traveler can be very subtle and may come to you in ways such as as a beautiful purple light or a deep sense of peace and calm. The Traveler never inflicts on you and simply acts as a guide, always working in accordance with your highest good and the highest good of all concerned. The promise of the Traveler is to assist initiates in clearing karma, breaking the cycle of incarnation, becoming established in the Soul realm, and upon physical death, lifting the consciousness to the high realms of pure Spirit.

    It’s Not Separate From You

    It is important that you understand this: the Mystical Traveler Consciousness is not something separate from you. It is a consciousness that is present within each person on all the levels of consciousness, and each person’s inner journey is an awakening to the Mystical Traveler on all the levels, up into the very heart of God, the center of living love.

    The Mystical Traveler is a special aspect of the Holy Spirit. You don’t give yourself over to the force that is the Mystical Traveler, you are it. It is the guiding Light. It is your own inner guidance.
