Man - the eternal being
When analyzing the history of human civilization, one can come to the conclusion that man is a special being, different from anything else in nature. Of course, it is not an animal. That is why I describe a man as an eternal being who, for the first, relatively short period of life, constitutes a unity of connected persons: physical and spiritual. After his physical death, he goes as a spiritual person to eternal life in the spiritual world, known as the sphere beyond time and space.
Essenceism shows that a spiritual person emerges from the Original Being, just as a newborn child emerges from a mother's womb. Its birth is not the result of fertilization, as is the case with physical conception. It begins in the heart of God, when the human body is governed by the law that the male sperm enters the female egg. The decision to fertilize comes from man, but it entails the "forced" participation of the Creator in the creation of a new human life. Everything indicates that the new spiritual person is formed from the Divine Energy. Of course, its formation is not related to any process of the passage of time, because the spiritual world functions beyond time and space. It is each time a unique creative act of the Original Being. Thus, a new eternal being arises into which a form of spirituality deriving from His Personality is grafted. The Creator transmits to her a part of Himself in the form of His Intelligence, Will and Love, which are integrated as if in a "piece" of His Heart. Therefore, it will be a child of both parents and His. Personal attributes for an individual person are completed when the Creator decides to breathe life into the nascent physical person in the form of a beginning of a spiritual person. This happens when the months of it development in the womb of mother are over. Such an embodiment of attributes from the Creator can be taken as the proper beginning of divine fatherhood for a particular human being.
I have this image before my eyes: a human being is born from a mother's womb - a new physical person. At the same time, another image is superimposed on this image: the emergence of an invisible spiritual person coming from the Creator. It connects to the one already visible to our senses. This is the beginning of each of us, being eternally existing from the moment of birth. We go on through life, we reach the state when our physical body is old and redundant. Then the spiritual person leaves the body shell, leaving it in the physical world. From that moment on, we become an invisible being that lives forever as a proper human being. So we were born of the Original Being, which should therefore be called Heavenly Father.
A physical person is our physical body endowed with the instinct for life, which is something like the instinct in animals. However, in the case of a human, this is not a typical instinct, although conditioned and unconditional reflexes function in him. In the case of animals, their inner sense can be called an animal soul. The human body, in turn, is governed by the inner governing nature, which should be called the physical soul. A physical person is then a physical being similar to an animal, but representing the highest stage of development. As in the case of animals, a physical person is associated with the surrounding nature and is subject to the laws that apply to it. Like all physical beings, she must die within a certain time. The difference between a physical person and even the most developed representative of the animal world lies in the different sense of their existence. This can be described with a simple theorem. The meaning of an animal's life is to serve a physical person, and the sense of a physical person's existence is to serve a spiritual person.
When we look at a person, we only see a physical person, and we do not see a spiritual person in him. This is because we cannot see energy. We try to locate it, but most often we are doomed only to accept the effects of its operation. This "building block" of life, derived from the Energy of the First Cause, accompanies us in our physical life as this "visible energy" transformed into matter. At the same time, there is also in us this "invisible", filling the spiritual world, also coming from the same source. This applies to both our physical and spiritual person. Certainly a physical person is a greater "consumer" of primary energy from God than a spiritual person, because it is material. The fact is that the Original Being engaged in the physical world a huge amount of primary energy. This is clearly shown by the equation given by Einstein (E = mc˛), in which the speed of light raised to the second power is a quantitative factor showing how much energy is needed to create matter. It must be said openly that only the Creator can do this.
A physical person uses the transformed energy into matter, which lasts from fertilization in the womb until her death. As I emphasized previously, it is a huge "user" of primary energy, albeit for a limited time. Thanks to this, it is visible and can fulfill its short mission of bringing a spiritual person to maturity. The spiritual one is also a "user" of primary energy, although with a much lower intensity, but for a much longer time, that is for all eternity. Both are, therefore, places of concentration and use, but on a different scale and at different times.
The permanent concentration of primary energy, which was used by the Creator to shape our spiritual person, is intended only for life beyond time and space. There is no need for our spiritual person to be visible in the physical world, because for the time of its growth to full maturity it is located in a visible physical person. Only in the first, physical phase of life intended for human development, it must harmonize with the primary energy transformed into the physical body. Then it leaves the dead physical body and continues life as invisible to our eyes. Except in exceptional circumstances, this concentrated energy from which it is made is never transformed into matter again.
Of course, in exceptional situations, a spiritual person can be felt in our physical world and even become visible to our eyes. I call it "physicalizing" (from this point onwards, I will no longer use quotation marks). There are several forms of this physicalization. I will start with the slightest spiritual interference in our physical reality. If someone remains in strong spiritual arousal, he can sense the concentration of energy in his environment resulting from the presence of such a person, and even recognize him without visualizing it. This happens with the simultaneous use of the imagination and spiritual senses of both parties involved in the phenomenon. Then you can even communicate with such an invisible person, that is, find out what he wants from us. This is done, for example, by using telepathy or by being alone in hypnosis. Then such a spiritual person can understand what we want to convey to him. With a slightly higher concentration of energy, it is "physically" formed, that is, "dressed" in a visible form, because the concentration of its spiritual energy is already sufficient to prevent light rays from passing through. Such a spiritual person looks like a shadow or a haze. This is how the so-called ghosts seen by certain people appear. They look like an airy figure. I am basing here on some testimonies and memories of people who experienced something like this, but I cannot verify it. The greater concentration of spiritual energy looks a bit different. Then the spiritual person looks like a physical figure and can perform various activities. For example, angels took on a physical form, communicated certain information, performed various jobs, and acted like humans. We know from the Bible that an angel fought with Jacob, the archangel Gabriel talked to Mary, and yet another broke the bars of the prison where St. Peter. It was not, however, mere materialization or visualization. This phenomenon is best described by the term already mentioned: physicalization, which describes the act of briefly appearing of a spiritual figure in the physical world. It may not be a term related to typical phenomena in our world, but it captures the meaning of the phenomenon being described. Sometimes another person called a medium is needed. She adds her will and energy to this transformation, a great amount of which must be used even with a brief physical expression. In addition, it should be noted that a person from the invisible world must want to be seen, because in order to become physical, he needs his will that mobilizes spiritual energy. Jesus Christ himself showed the maximum effect of this phenomenon. After His resurrection, He was fully visible, spoke, moved and performed various activities like an ordinary person. Many times, whenever He wanted it, He appeared among His disciples, taking advantage of the fact that they too were "energetically" prepared and involved in His presence.
Summarizing the above, it should be clearly stated that the purpose of the Creator was to give eternal life to His children in the form of a spiritual person. For He did not create man to die. The death of the physical body was predicted by Him from the beginning. A man who achieves personal perfection as a spiritual person is the culmination of the Creator's work, fully completed and stabilized for eternity. It reflects God's qualities to the maximum. There is no need to imagine someone even greater and more perfect. For the Creator put everything that was best in His work.
Man and other spiritual beings
In this chapter, I would like to organize the vocabulary of spiritual beings and define the main concepts associated with them as far as possible.
At the beginning, of course, I take into account the Original Entity, i.e. the Source for all beings. Until now, I have avoided this name for the Original Being to define God, but now I return to it to better explain the position of other spiritual beings towards Him.
Secondly, I mention an existing being, that is, a man whom I previously called an eternal being. This eternity also applies to all other spiritual beings, but man is a special category of being, the closest to the Original Being. It is worth realizing that the appearance of man meant the emergence of a completely new category in the universe. There were probably other spiritual beings before its creation. Middle Eastern religions have given them the name of angels.
Man's uniqueness is due to the fact that the Creator "personally" breathed into him a part of His Personality. This means that in the form of a spiritual person, He transferred a part of Himself to him. It is a sign of God's direct presence at the birth of every human being. From that moment on, a period of growth begins for him. At the same time, for God it is a time of waiting for a person to reach personal perfection, which is associated with the full experience of child, marital and parental love. These should be the stages of man's development in order to be capable of partnership in the light of God's highest love. This gives Him the opportunity to experience eternal happiness in the spiritual world - the eternal life environment for both the Original Being and man.
The three types of love mentioned above are therefore the three stages leading to the perfect love, which the Original Being has in itself. Anyway, the entire physical world was created precisely for the purpose that man, experiencing the three types of emotional experiences on Earth, could eventually reach the level of God's love. Thus, the human being, as the only one in all creation, undergoes the full path of development formed for him by the Creator. Man is to become a mature master of all things, a being who lives eternally with the Heavenly Father, remaining eternally His beloved child.
Next, I list the beings that support man, that is, the spiritual beings called angels. I do not know much about the "structure" of the world of angels, so I will focus only on the basic issues. The existence of several archangels, for example, Michael, Gabriel, and even Lucifer, is described in the Bible, which I respect as an important resource to help us understand spiritual phenomena. It seems logical that, apart from the archangels, there are a huge number of angels who are apparently necessary to the Creator and to man. My guess is that these "ordinary" angels are tasked with looking after specific people, while the role of archangels is to perform various missions entrusted to them by the Creator.
In the case of angels, we have inherited the ancient religious vision of so-called heaven. Besides, in most cultures there is a tendency to create a fairy-tale image of the spiritual world, which can be seen in the case of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. That is why Christians, in response to poor Judaism in this respect, created a mythology about angelic choirs, about golden trumpets on which they play for God's glory, and about a mystical circle surrounding the throne of God. This vision of heaven has survived to this day. It replaces many people with the true picture of angels' activities. In fact, they should be seen as active assistants to people in the process of achieving personal perfection. God does not really need angels to play trumpets and sing praises to Him. He created them in order to take care of people, His children, and also to convey His Will to them, especially during their life on Earth. I think almost all of them are our guardians who guide us throughout our lives. At its end, their role is to introduce us to the spiritual world. Then they can be called angels of death. I suppose they are still the same spiritual guardians we receive at birth.
Angels are beings that God intended to exist only in the spiritual world. They have the personality of a servant, knowledge resulting from observation of the process of creating the universe and an awareness open to the needs of the implementation of tasks both from the Creator and from people. They also have, like us, an inner character that can be called a "spiritual soul". In their inner character there is a considerable level of intelligence, will and affection, but it certainly does not rise to the level of these attributes in man. Of course, we are talking about a man who has achieved the level of personal perfection intended for him by the Creator. But their knowledge of the spiritual world is incomparably greater than that of people.
Therefore, angels are spiritual beings who are servants of both God and man. It follows that their ministry began with the appearance of the first humans, such as Adam and Eve, who were to inhabit the physical world from that moment on. So their ministry extends to all generations of mankind. In addition, in the spiritual world they perform their parallel mission towards spiritual persons, a little similar in its sense to that of animals and all nature on Earth towards physical persons. Comparing the position of angels and animals towards people, it can be stated that the spiritual person of man is a more perfect spiritual being than an angel, and his physical person is a more perfect being than an animal. In sum, during earthly life, angels support the development of human consciousness of knowing love, beauty and goodness. At the same time, in the spiritual world, their mission is to prepare spiritual people coming there from the physical world for eternal life.
An angel is in a sense a "poorer" version of a spiritual person, because he does not need a physical person for his development. He is not a fully person, because he does not have a formed gender, and above all, he cannot directly, like a human being, experience childhood, marital and parental love.
There is an even more important and fundamental difference between humans and angels. For man is God's representative in the entire universe, inheriting from Him all the attributes of divinity, and above all, His highest level of love. Meanwhile, the angel takes the position of a servant with whom love is actually realized on the level of fidelity.
To illustrate the difference between the position of people and angels even better, I will compare the process of creating love and thoughts in man. Love flows from our entire being and is the maximum expression of our personality. Meanwhile, the thought coming out of us does not require the involvement of our entire personality, but only the use of intellect in building a certain concept that serves a specific purpose. Love is the highest and maximum fruit of human activity, while thought is the common mode of human functioning. The same principle governs the lineage of humans and angels. Man is the maximum fruit of God's Emotionality, while an angel is a being representing a narrow sphere of tasks assigned to him by the Creator. This clearly defines the role they play in His world.
To sum up, the angel reaches his level of perfection and knowledge, living only in the spiritual world, which does not give him the opportunity to follow the path of development that people follow. On the other hand, human development takes place during earthly life, and reaching personal perfection takes place according to the emotionality, intelligence and will shaped in him, which he inherits from the Original Being. After passing the full period of development to perfection in the physical world, a person is already a spiritual being with a status higher than an angel in the spiritual world. He becomes God's partner.
The true state of man
The sense of getting to know the Original Being by man is primarily related to the fact that He gave people for further development a part of His work. In this case, it is development already carried out by another creator, who based on the inherited work is to create a new reality. The handing over of His work to a human being means the end of His role as a builder of the physical world, even if this work was in its raw state at the time of the transfer. For the Creator, it is a finite whole, or state, which He has planned. Next, the entire "creator" assumes all responsibility. This means that there are lower levels of perfection than divine in relation to other beings and phenomena. Man in his development goes through various levels of perfection regarding physical presence in the environment he develops. Regardless of the situation, the laws of Divine Providence are constantly present. However, this time it is the man who should lead to perfection the entities that accompany him. At the same time, his ultimate goal is personal perfection, which should be the result of biological life on Earth.
In previous parts of the study on essenceism, I described man as an entity existing in an integrated form of coexistence of his physical and spiritual person. This applies only to the first stage of our lives, the "earthly" stage. The second part is the eternal state of existence of a spiritual person in the sphere beyond of time and space, i.e. in the spiritual world. In previous parts of the study on essenceism, I pointed out that there are other beings that exist forever. It's about angels. They are servants of God and people, unlike man only having a spiritual person. Also, unlike people who have free will, their will should be called a targeted will in which freedom has a small share.
Essenceism presents the theory that a human spiritual person emerges from the Original Being, just as a newborn baby emerges from the mother's womb. This birth, however, is not the result of fertilization, as is the case with physical conception.
According to this theory, man has its origin in the Heart of God, when in the human body the law that comes from Him about the proper penetration of a male sperm into a woman's egg cell works. The decision to fertilize comes from man, but as a consequence it involves God's participation in initiating the creation of a new human life. This was the concept of the Creator from the beginning, when he handed Earth over to man. The formation of a spiritual person is not associated with any process of passing time or a specific place, because the spiritual world functions outside of time and space. Each time it is a unique Divine creation act that is beyond our consciousness. A spiritual person is formed from the beginning with Divine Energy. Therefore, a new, eternal being arises in which the personality emerged from the Divine Personality will be implanted. The Creator gives it as if a part of Himself in the form of His Intelligence, Will and Love and a "piece" of His Heart. Therefore, it will be a child of both parents and His. The personal attributes of God for a particular person come to life when the Creator makes the decision to breathe life into a natural being born. This occurs when the period of its many months of development in the womb ends. Such embodiment of attributes from the Creator can be taken as the proper beginning of the divine fatherhood towards a particular human individual.
I have such a picture: a human being is born from the mother's womb - a new physical person. Everyone present at the birth can see it. At the same time, another picture overlaps with this: the Creator's calling a new spiritual person. It emerges from Him, but it is invisible to our eyes. It connects with the one already visible to our senses, which we cannot see either. This process follows from the principle that man is a child of God and is to be in His image and likeness. We go further through life, we reach a state when our physical body is old and redundant. Then we shed the fleshly shell that is delaying us. We are still living as a proper spiritual man, i.e. a spiritual person. From that moment we are an invisible being, inaccessible to physical senses, but living forever in the spiritual world.
For clarity, this part essenceizmu explain that to determine the human use of terms an individual and a spiritual person. During the period of human development during earthly life, they are together a united human entity. In other words, the "interior" of man is a spiritual person because he is the right human being. It is a much more precise name than spirit or soul. Actually, in relation to man I avoid the term spirit, because in the colloquial meaning it means a very wide range of spiritual beings, such as angels, ghosts of the dead, demons, devils, nymphs etc. At the same time, in my considerations I use the term soul in a slightly different sense than religions. I reserve it to describe the internal character of a given being. It is not some independent entity, but rather an internal, inseparable directing nature. The model for determining it is the main attributes of God, that is, the attributes of God's Spirit. These are, above all: His Intelligence, Will and Emotionality, which create as if His Inner Character. He penetrates the ubiquitous Energy of the First Cause, which for our imagination can be called the Spiritual Body of God. It is similar with man. Hence the name spiritual soul for the inner character of the spiritual person and the physical soul for the character of the physical person.
Each birth of a new man is another impulse in the development of the Original Being itself, an act of expanding its presence in the universe. It is as if thanks to our birth He developed even though He is already a perfect being. This claim refers to a situation in which our world would develop from the beginning in accordance with the concept of the Creator. In this way, through us, the Creator has the opportunity to realize His inner desire for development. It was simultaneously inherited by all universe. Therefore, development is the basic mechanism of all universe existence. It is also the main principle of our personality, because each of us was created to become as if an extension of the Creator, or rather a collective complement. Of course, the implementation of this concept will be possible when man reaches the maturity foreseen by the Creator, which should be understood in human terms as perfection. This was clearly emphasized by the only perfect man who walked the Earth: "... be perfect, how perfect your Heavenly Father is" (Mt 5:48). Unfortunately, his request is still unfulfilled.
God did not create man to die. The death of the physical body was foreseen by the Creator from the beginning. It should not be a tragedy or cause of suffering for a person's immediate environment. The Creator is waiting with longing for each of His children, because each of us can bring Him unique joy and happiness. In the Kingdom of Heaven, that is, in an ideal world, physical death completes the stage of human growth to perfection and is rather an opportunity for great joy. It is as if he passed his "high school-leaving examination" and everything was open to him. Our physical life can also be compared to the duration of pregnancy or the period of hatching in the egg. After leaving the earthly shell, or rejecting the material body, everyone will be able to live forever. He will enjoy freedom in the entire infinite universe, and above all, existence in a kind of symbiosis with God.
To sum up, man was not created like everything else in the universe. He was born of the Original Being which should therefore be called Heavenly Father.
