xviiii. The Soul as the Causal Body
NB: This article can be found after the following introductory passages.
Before you read this article, please note that, from 1996, I (Pari, the author of this article) had begun to see numerous visions. I was trying to understand what was happening to me. As I was trying to understand this, I began writing all the articles which can be found in this website. Each article is a continuation of the earlier one. So what I had explained in earlier articles were not explained in subsequent articles. This had also allowed me to keep developing what I have to explain. After I had written numerous articles, people were asking me as to which articles they had to read in order to understand something or the other. Thus, in 2015, I began to write books. All the knowledge which a person needs, so as to understand the contents of a book, are given in the book. Thus, a person could understand the contents of a book without having to revert to other articles or books. However, a better understanding could be had through reading the other books. I had also begun writing my first book “Holographic Universe : An Introduction” because I began to have a good understanding on the structure of the Holographic Universe through experiences, guidance from God, research, etc.
It should be remembered that my articles were written while I was trying to understand what was happening to me. So, the emphasis in the articles may have been on my own roles (due to the afterlife of my past births). In my books, I concentrate on just explaining knowledge and not really on giving an explanation on my own role.
It should be noted that since there are so many articles, I find it very difficult to update the articles. So there may be information in them which has not been updated. I try my best to keep my eBooks updated.
Anyway, to have a better understand of what has been said in this article, read all my earlier articles. Begin by reading the first article which is numbered as No.1 at my List of Articles. Then, re-read this article to have a better understanding. It should be noted that all my articles were written based on time being cyclic. Click here to understand the basics of the Cycle of Time.

The Holographic Universe: Part 3 - The Soul as the Causal Body
(includes a discussion on the Causal World; how to make magic; Causal Body is naturally used during the soul-conscious stage in the first half cycle; Causal Light of God act like the light in scanner to leave the impressions onto the 2D Web-Like Subtle World Drama at the end of the cycle; causal light of human souls leave the impressions onto the 2D Web-Like Subtle World Drama as the soul is playing its part on earth; pull on soul to come into the corporeal world; causal energies in the World Drama deep within the soul becomes entangled with the 2D Web-Like Subtle World Drama; Causal Body as Brahma/creator; after death the path divides into 2 separate paths for the soul and the corpse; corpse becomes part of the world stage for decaying process; effects of Scientific Laws in Subtle World Drama; birth-role as conscious self; depths of soul as sub-conscious self)
Before reading this, please read:
The Causal Body is used in the Causal World or Causal Dimension. There are three kinds of worlds:
1. Bhuloka. This is the physical world in which the humans live, while using physical bodies.
2. Antarloka. This consists of the subtle worlds in which a person can have experiences of using a subtle body of light. There many different kinds of subtle regions, depending on the spiritual stage which the soul is in. The Causal Body creates the subtle bodies, in the visions, which we see. These subtle bodies are supposed to be in the subtle regions. Actually, subtle regions do not exist anywhere because a subtle region is a reflection of the spiritual stage which we are experiencing. I have already begun an explanation on this in my articles. More will be explained as I discuss how the subtle regions are entangled with the World Drama.
3. Sivaloka (the World of Shiva). This is also referred to as Karanaloka (Causal World). Whatever is needed, in the subtle and physical worlds, is provided through the Causal World.
The Sanskrit word Karana-Sarira, or Karana Deha, means Causal Body. Kaaran or Karana means ‘Causal’ or ‘cause’. Sarira and Deha means ‘body’. It is the metaphysical light energies of the soul, existing in the metaphysical dimension, which is referred to as the Karana Sarira or the Causal Body. The Causal Body is used in the Karanaloka (Causal World).
There are different types of Causal Worlds. Three of these are:
1. the Confluence Aged Subtle World of God or Confluence Aged subtle region. This is the Causal World which is used during the Confluence Age.
2. the Causal World of the Copper Aged Mapmakers. This can also be referred to as the Causal World of the Copper Aged immortal gods. This begins during the Mid-Confluence and it continues until the end of the cycle. However, it is most significantly used during the Mid-Confluence and at the end (now).
3. the Causal World of the Vices. This begins at the beginning of the Copper Age and it continues until the end of the cycle.
During the Mid-Confluence, the Mid-Confluence Aged gods were able to create magic through the Causal World of the Copper Aged Mapmakers. This will be discussed further, in a later article, when I discuss how even a Collective Consciousness can act as a Causal Body.
During the Confluence Age, God creates the new Golden Aged world through the Confluence Aged Causal World. The Confluence Aged souls enjoy bliss, while they are in the Confluence Aged Causal World. I will not be discussing the Confluence Aged Causal World and the Confluence Aged Causal Bodies, in this article. It will be discussed in a later article.
During the second half cycle, the vices are able to create magic, give visions, etc through the Causal World of the Vices. I have already begun a discussion on the Causal World of the Vices, in my articles. More will be discussed later, when I discuss how Ego can be used as a Causal Body for beneficial purposes.
God (the Supreme Soul) and human souls use/are the Causal Bodies. In the Copper and Iron Ages, human beings are not aware that they are the souls. As per the World Drama, it has to be like this so as to limit the magical abilities of the vices.
The causal aspect is a different aspect of the soul. We do not use the Causal Body, as we like. We are not even aware that the Causal Body is being used because:
1. we are in the mortal state.
2. we use birth roles, during each birth. We act as the birth role and not as the soul.
Actually, we are the souls. However, when we use the birth role, during each birth, we become limited to what the birth role can do. Thus, we do not consciously use the causal abilities of the soul. It is like this because we are not supposed to know that we are using the Causal Body.
During the first half cycle, the soul-conscious stage helps and guides the soul. This involves the usage of the Causal Body. The Causal Body is naturally used, as per the World Drama, because of the soul-conscious stage of the soul. The soul will not be aware that the Causal Body is being used. The person will just enjoy getting whatever he wants and needs because of his soul-conscious stage.
During the second half cycle, we no longer use the soul-conscious stage. So our Causal Body is not, naturally, providing us with whatever we want and need. However, we can train ourselves to use our Causal Bodies. We can also get help from God, to get what we want. We will succeed, in getting what we want, if it is there in the World Drama. God is always able to use His Causal Body to help us. However, He will only do it as per the World Drama. I will discuss how the Causal Bodies and Causal Mind are used during worship etc, in a later article.
At the end of the cycle, it is the Causal Light of God which helps to leave the impressions of the World Drama (from within God and all human souls) into the 2D Web-Like Subtle World Drama. In my other articles on the Holographic Universe, I have begun an explanation on how these impressions are left in the Subtle World Drama. The Causal Light of God acts like the light in the scanner to leave a 2D impression of the World Drama (that exists within God and all humans souls) onto the energies of the Quantum God. However, impressions are not left of everything that is in the World Drama deep within the human souls. It has to be like this because, as per the World Drama, it has to look like as if our decisions are influencing what happens in the World Drama. Thus, as we make decisions, more impressions are left in the 2D Web-Like Subtle World Drama. This makes it look like as if the World Drama is changing, in the Holographic Universe, based on the decisions which we make. This is what we will be seeing, during experiences. ‘Confusion’ will make us think that the Subtle World Drama, in the Holographic Universe, is getting developed as a result of the decisions which we make.
At the end of the cycle, almost everything for what happens on the world stage, in the World Drama, will get imprinted onto the energies of the Quantum God in the Subtle World Drama. Where the birth roles are concerned, it is only the basic World Drama which will be imprinted on the energies of the Quantum God. For example, there will be impressions of when the souls will begin playing their roles on earth. Based on this impression, the corporeal world exerts a pull on the souls to come and play their roles in the corporeal world. There will also be a strong pull on the souls because the Quantum God has to provide corporeal bodies for them, etc. As per the World Drama, a fetus is created based on the role which a soul will have to play when he comes into the corporeal world. When it is time for the soul to enter the fetus, there is a strong pull on the soul to leave the Soul World and come into the corporeal world so as to enter the fetus. This ‘pull’ helps the soul to come into the corporeal world, when God lets go of the soul from the Soul World (as per the World Drama within God) and, as the soul leaves the Soul World (as per the World Drama deep within the soul). When we come into the corporeal world, the causal energies of the soul leave more impressions (of what exists in the World Drama deep within the soul) into the Subtle World Drama. As we are about to do something and as we do something, our causal energies leave even more impressions on the quantum energies in the Subtle World Drama. All these detailed stuff are in the World Drama, deep within the soul, so as to influence the soul. However, these details are not there in the Subtle World Drama, of the Holographic Universe, until we are about to play our roles. At every point in the World Drama, it is the causal energies which leave the impressions in the Subtle World Drama as the causal energies also stimulate the brain to influence us to act as per the World Drama. The impressions are not left in the Subtle World Drama because we make the decision. In a later article, I will discuss how the Causal Body stimulates the brain to influence us to make a decision, do something, etc., as per the World Drama deep within the soul.
The Quantum Energies cannot come into the soul. Thus, the causal energies of the soul are projected out, into the Subtle World Drama, so that the quantum energies can provide what is needed as per the World Drama. It is the Causal Bodies of the human souls which begin the process for what has to get created on earth through the Quantum God.
As each soul comes into the corporeal world to play its role, a little of its causal energies (from the World Drama deep within the soul) becomes entangled with the 2D Web-Like Subtle World Drama. These entangled causal energies become like as if they are part of the 2D Web-Like Subtle World Drama. As the causal energies of the soul get entangled into the Subtle World Drama, more impressions are left in the Subtle World Drama (from the World Drama within the soul). The causal energies of the soul act like the light in the scanner to allow more impressions to be made on the energies of the Quantum God, in the Subtle World Drama. The Quantum God materializes whatever has been imprinted in the Subtle World Drama. It materializes it by creating the subtle quantum bodies and the quantum aspect for everything else that is needed in the World Drama on earth. These are created in the Subtle Life Drama. At the same time, what has been created in the Subtle Life Drama provides for the Physical Bodies and the Material World. The human souls, who are entangled with the 2D Subtle World Drama, are actually in the subtle quantum bodies in the Subtle Life Drama. Thus, they are in the Physical Bodies, on earth.
Through leaving impressions in the 2D Subtle World Drama, the Causal Bodies (of God and human souls) initiate the ‘creation’ that will exist in the Material World. Actually, it is God (the Supreme Soul) who is mainly responsible for this creation process because it is the impressions that had been left from the World Drama within God (which was imprinted at the end of each cycle) that is mainly used as the Quantum God materializes the Material World. This creation process which begins with God playing the initial role, in the quantum aspect of the Holographic Universe, has also been reflected in myths through light appearing in the darkness or ‘nothing’ so as to bring about the ‘creation’. The darkness or ‘nothing’ reflects the quantum aspect in the Holographic Universe.
In visions, we often see God and human souls as ‘points of light’ in a black atmosphere. The black atmosphere is a reflection of the quantum aspect which we are engulfed in, while we are in the corporeal world. We have to look through that blackness, which we are engulfed in, to see other souls and the light of God. However, when we have a Confluence Aged subtle experience, we do not experience the ‘black atmosphere’ because God’s energies instantly bring our consciousness out of the corporeal dimension, even though the soul is still using its corporeal body in the corporeal world.
Since the soul, as the Causal Body, initiates or causes or begins the process for a ‘creation’ to take place; it can be said that the Causal Body plays the role of Brahma, the creator. Though the soul exists eternally, it does not always use the Causal Body. Thus, it does not always play the role of the creator/Brahma. For example, the human souls do not play the role of the creator when they are in the Soul World. The Supreme Soul (God) does not play the role of the Creator, during the first half cycle, when He is resting (after having created the Golden Aged world).
We use 3 kinds of bodies in each life: physical, subtle and causal. The Causal Body creates the Subtle Body that gets projected into the Subtle Regions. The Causal Body is also responsible for the creation of the Physical Body because the Physical Body is created based on the impressions that have been left in the Subtle World Drama. The physical body, which we get, is based on what exists in the World Drama deep within the soul. The World Drama, that is deep within the soul, is part of the Causal Body that provides us with the Physical Body (through leaving an impression in the Subtle World Drama).
During each birth, the soul uses different physical bodies and subtle bodies, as per the World Drama within the soul. The Causal Body, of a human soul, is used to create all these bodies for all his births on earth. The birth role, in the World Drama within each soul, is like the gene which is used to provide us with a specific Physical Body.
Based on what exists in the World Drama, for the birth role, we are provided with a body with specific mental, physical and other capabilities. The World Drama also provides the family which we will be born into, our weaknesses, our specialties, how long we will live, etc. Based on these, our physical bodies will have genes which will provide us with what we need or what we are supposed to have or be. The genes which we are given are also for the purpose of settling for our deeds in past births, as per the Law of Karma.
At the end of one’s life, the soul stops using the birth-role of that life. In the World Drama, deep within the soul, it will be as if the birth-role has been laid to rest in this section of the World Drama. The soul is not affected by what happens to the dead bodies of his previous lives. What happens to the dead bodies of his past births, after death, is also not there in the World Drama deep within his soul.
After death, the soul begins to use the next birth-role (of the next birth) which lies on his path in the World Drama. He just continues to walk along one straight path, while leaving an old birth-role and using a new one. However, it will look different in the 2D Web-Like Subtle World Drama because this does not just involve the path of one soul.
In the 2D Web-Like Subtle World Drama, it will look like as if the path of one’s body (after death) is no longer the path taken by the soul. It will look like as if the path taken by the person gets divided up into 2 separate paths (for the soul and the corpse). Others, whose paths are linked to the corpse, continue playing a role that involves the corpse until their paths move off from that of the corpse.
What happens to the corpse becomes part of the world stage. What happens to the corpse is relevant, in the Subtle World Drama, because of the decaying process etc. At the end of the previous cycle, the impressions for what happens to the bodies (after death) is left, in the Subtle World Drama, as part of what generally happens in the World Drama on earth. These impressions are based on what has just been created, what exists in the sciences relating to the corporeal stage and based on what is in the World Drama within God. This is one reason why, in the sakar murlis of the Brahma Kumaris, God also tells us:
1. that the bodies will decay.
2. that the bodies get cremated in the first half cycle.
What happens to the body is also knowledge that can be got from the World Drama, which is within God. So it is being related in the sakar murlis (God’s messages).
The sciences can be used to explain the decaying process. The impressions, left in the Subtle World Drama, provide for the decaying process and everything else which can be explained through using the sciences and maths. Just as the Law of Karma has a role to play in the World Drama for the second half cycle; even the sciences and maths (hereafter referred to as the Scientific Laws) have a role to play in the World Drama. This makes it look like as if the sciences and maths were in the Mind of the Creator as the Creator was creating the Material World. It was not in God’s Mind. It was in God’s Causal Mind since the sciences have to become part of the World Stage. Since the Scientific Laws have a role to play in the World Drama, people can have a better understanding of the Material World through using the sciences and maths. Just as the Law of Karma places limitations on us; even the Scientific Laws place limitations on us, in the Material World, and we are all subjected to it.
The World Drama and the Memory Bank are in the causal body, i.e. deep within the soul. The depth of the soul is, generally, being referred to as the sub-conscious mind. Thus, it can be said that the World Drama is in our sub-conscious mind. The sub-conscious mind is not always used as a causal mind. Thus, I would prefer to refer to the sub-conscious mind as the ‘sub-conscious self’. The sub-conscious self uses/is the Causal Body. The sub-conscious mind is just a faculty of the sub-conscious self (Causal Body). I will explain this further when I discuss the Causal Mind, in a later article.
Generally, our conscious self (of the birth role) does not have access to everything that is in our sub-conscious self. The Memory Bank of the present life is not that deep within. It can be said to be part of the conscious self (of the present birth). The memory bank of past births, in which the experiences and knowledge of past births are in, is much deeper within the soul. Our conscious self does not have access to that since that is in the sub-conscious self. When we are in the consciousness of being the soul, we have access to what is in the sub-conscious self because we are in the Causal Dimension of the soul. Then, we, as the soul or causal body:
1. can see the experiences and knowledge acquired in past births, which exist deep within the soul.
2. can view what exists in the World Drama.
3. can do so much more, including magic.
Magic is initiated with the Causal Body creating a ‘new creation’ in the subtle form, in the World Drama deep within the soul. This ‘new creation’ also gets projected onto the 2D Subtle World Drama so as to leave impressions there, as the soul is playing its part. Since the impression of the ‘new creation’ also exists in the 2D Subtle World Drama, the Quantum God will provide the material form for it.
The Causal Body of the soul can also hide something in the World Drama deep within the soul. When something is hidden, in the World Drama deep within the soul, it will not get projected onto the 2D Subtle World Drama so as to leave an impression there. Since it is not there in the 2D Subtle World Drama, the Quantum God will not provide it in the Material World. If it was being provided, previously, it will be removed in the Material World since it no longer exists in the 2D Subtle World Drama. The Quantum God will not provide it from the instant that it does not detect it in the Subtle World Drama. I have begun an explanation, on how the Quantum God provides the Material World, in the article:
The magician uses the Quantum God to make magic. We can make magic happen through strong thoughts, affirmations, visualizations, etc because (through the thoughts, affirmations, visualizations, etc) we begin to use the Causal Body. For example, when the visualization becomes so powerful (within the soul) the Causal Body will place the visualization in the World Drama, deep within the soul, so as to make it look like as if the visualization is part of the World Drama within the soul. This gets projected onto the 2D Subtle World Drama, so as to leave an impression there, as the energies of the soul keep getting projected onto the 2D Subtle World Drama. Thus, the Quantum God provides for even that which has been visualized. However, everything only happens as per the World Drama. I will discuss how we can heal the body through using the causal energies, in a later article, when I discuss how the causal energies are used during worship, healing etc.
When one goes into the causal dimension of the soul, one is not using the birth role. One is in the consciousness of being the soul. Thus, it is like as if one becomes someone else.
Since the soul is only a point of light, the Causal Body is only a point. However, a special Subtle Causal Body can get created for us through worship and/or meditation. This Subtle Causal Body can look like our physical body if we initiate the usage of the Causal Body, while using the birth-role. This Subtle Causal Body can be developed if the birth-role is trying to make miracles happen. So, sometimes, it can seem like as if we are not acting as the soul (when we use the Causal Body).
When one is involved with practices to use the Causal Body, it is as if the Causal Body is being developed or adopted. Sometimes, instead of using the Subtle Causal Body that looks like us, we may be in the state where we experience ourselves as the soul (while we are using the Causal Body). Through worship and/or meditation, one also develops one’s ability to experience being the soul so as to use the causal powers of the soul. Since the soul is eternal, the practices (that were handed down to teach the people to use the Causal Body) have been portrayed as practices to become immortal. However, the word ‘immortal’ is only a reference to the eternal nature of the soul. It signifies that we are being taught to attain the state of being the soul so as to use the Causal Body.
It is only the deities/people of the first half cycle who are immortals because they are naturally, and constantly, in the soul-conscious stage. The humans, in the second half cycle, are mortals. In the second half cycle, no-one can become a human who is an immortal until the end of the cycle (when God comes and energies us, through the Confluence Age, so that we can take our subsequent immortal births as deities/people in the first half cycle). At the beginning of the Copper Age, many were involved with giving immortality to their birth-roles. Giving immortality to birth-roles involve using the Causal Dimension. I have begun a discussion on how the Copper Aged people were trying to attain immortality, so as to play a role at the end, in my earlier articles. I will discuss the causal aspect of it, in later articles.
Om Shanti (This means ‘I am a peaceful soul’)

NB: All my articles are based on time moving in a cyclic manner, in the order as follows:
1. the divine world in the first half cycle: involving the Golden Age (Satyug) and then the Silver Age (Tetrayug).
2. the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages: where the world transforms back into the ordinary state (after a vice was entertained). For convenience, I refer to this Confluence as the Mid-Confluence.
3. the ordinary world of the second half cycle: involving the Copper Age (Dwapuryug) and then the Iron Age (Kaliyug).
4. the Confluence Age (at the end, now): through which the world is transformed back into the divine Golden Aged world.
