When investigating spirituality, one cannot use conventional measurement and analysis tools. Spiritual investigation is carried out throughout with the use of extrasensory perception. The dimension of spirituality is as methodical and rational as that of the physical world. The knowledge attained spiritually is by accessing Universal Mind and Intellect. Research into spirituality is not dependent on time or place. This science needs a spiritually evolved guide to decipher intricate subtleties of Universal Mind and Intellect.
Just as we cannot use a measuring tape to measure one’s intellect, so also we cannot use physical, psychological or intellectual methods to understand or explore the spiritual realm. This is because of the simple reason that by definition the spiritual dimension is beyond understanding of the five senses, mind and intellect.
We are familiar with gaining knowledge through the media of the five sense organs, namely, eyes, ears, nose, skin and tongue, mind and intellect. This is the model in which we conduct conventional research of modern sciences; however, only about 2% of the spiritual dimension is understood by the medium of the five sense organs, namely, eyes, ears, nose, skin and tongue, mind and intellect and 98% of intricate subtleties can be recognized only through subtle sense organs. Subtle sense is commonly known as our sixth sense or extrasensory perception. You can investigate into spirituality only with a highly expanded extrasensory perception. To study science of spirituality, we need highly evolved subtle sense organs, subtle mind and subtle intellect.
In investigating into spirituality, do not attempt to verify the authenticity of a religious artifact by using carbon dating technologies. Spiritual investigation is beyond modern science research methodologies and is not same as establishing connection between religious practice and some sociological or psychological transformation. Investigation into spirituality is not same as validating whether a place is haunted, through advanced technological equipment. In all these occasions, one is trying to measure and understand the spiritual realm with modern sciences. This is known as research and not spiritual research. The ability to measure and understand the spiritual realm with modern sciences is severely restricted and compromises the accuracy or effectiveness of the analysis.
When modern science investigated the cause of jaundice, it found one cause of jaundice was infection. On further study, found out that the infection was caused by Hepatitis virus. Further investigations led to discovery that there are various types of the Hepatitis virus like Hepatitis A, B and C. The subtle analysis of causes of ailments and problems goes in this order, but deepest causes are accessible only with the help of the science of spirituality.
Investigating spiritually reveals root cause of a problem and this cause can be in the physical, psychological or spiritual dominion. Up to 80% of life problems have their root cause in the spiritual realm. Quite often when we see a tragedy occur we hear the phrase, ‘Its God’s will’. However, the root cause behind tragedies such as natural disasters or airplane crashes are primarily in the spiritual realm that in our ignorance we attribute to ‘God’s will’. We can investigate the spiritual root causes of difficulties in life.
The knowledge of even the most knowledgeable person has limitations. On the other hand, Universal Mind and Intellect knows everything about everything. People from any walk of life or nationality experience inspiration after praying following a severe mental block. Many are unbelievably saved from serious accidents after a prayer. If one develops extrasensory perception through spiritual practice beyond a certain point, one is able to get unrestricted access to the Universal Mind and Intellect.
When knowledge is received from the Universal Mind and Intellect one does not need to travel places to do the research. This knowledge is not dependent on the time and space of the event. Whether a specific event happened many centuries ago or is to happen in the future, the nature of the incident and its contributing factors can still be ascertained. Any spiritual research team needs to be led by a person at the spiritual level of a saint or a guru. These evolved beings can access the Universal Mind and Intellect and be absolutely sure that they are not being misguided by subtle bodies or entities. In simple terms, achieving the spiritual level of a saint is like being a Nobel laureate in a certain field in worldly life.
