A soul as light as incense smoke

One night I heard a family who had just died calling out in Balinese: “Om…sing ngidaang menek”.

In English it is translated as “Uncle, I can’t go up”. At the same time this recently deceased person is seen sitting at the foot of a very holy hill.

The name of the hill is Bukit Sinunggal. The hill where many souls experience oneness. It is very sad of course, after pondering for a long time, to get a beautiful answer.

People whose soul journey is heavy generally grow in 3 dimensions. Seeing life through the eyes of duality (wrong-right, etc.) which is very strong.

Absolutely it lives very separately. Tend to call themselves right, and call others wrong. They are not only full of conflict.

But also full of disease. For this type of person, life grows in the law of survival of the fittest. The law of the jungle, whoever is strong will win.

If touched by spirituality such as meditation, humans can grow to 4 dimensions. There is something greater than a separate self. We are all actually connected.

He who hurts will be hurt, he who loves will be loved. This is what gives rise to the inner awareness to help a lot, as well as hurt as little as possible.

Those who arrive at this level are often called experiencing awakening. That is the door to the 5th dimension. At the 5th dimensional level, humans begin to grow in loving awareness.

This frequency is sometimes called heaven on earth: “Consciousness bathed in love”. Everything is impermanent, everything flows, only being witnessed.

At the same time, there is a desire to guide as many beings as possible so they can grow on the same frequency. The frequency that contains far less disease and pain.

Mahatma Gandhi has reached this level: “Earth is enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for someone’s greed”. No need to compete, or even knock each other out.

Again, no need!. What humans need is available in nature. This level is called enlightenment. At this level too, the soul will fly lightly after death.

As light as incense smoke. Without doing anything it will move up. Hopefully many creatures can get here.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
