The Higher Soul & I am
Jesus says in John 14:6, “I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” The Lord Jesus literally means that I AM or higher soul within you is the way, the truth and the life. “The Divine Father” here refers to the divine spark in every person.
“I AM the life” means that the higher soul is the source of life. When the higher soul unplugs the silver cord of life, the body dies.
“I AM the truth” means that the higher soul is the voice of conscience, the voice of truth.
“I AM the way” means that the incarnated soul cannot unite with the Divine Father without uniting with the higher soul, the I AM.
The divine spark in every person is a part of God. It is made in the essence of God. The divine spark extends a portion of itself “downward”, manifesting as the higher soul. The higher soul extends a portion of itself “downward”, manifesting as the incarnated soul. In Hindu teachings, the incarnated soul is called Jivatma. It literally means “embodied soul”. The higher soul is called Atma. The divine spark is called Paramatma. This is why St. Paul said that you have a body, a soul, and a spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Here, “spirit” refers to the divine spark in each person. To achieve union with the divine spark or the Divine Father within you, you must first pass through the I AM or the higher soul.
