    We are living in a physical world, which is of images but composed of solid objects. The joy feeling experienced from their contact would be different than coming from your images.
    But ascetics do experience joy, without coming into contact with nature or its scenes.
    Their way also goes through senses. They also tread the same paths of pleasure, joy, and bliss.

    Yes, it is certainly a physical experience, not just mental or intelligence.

    ‘Atman’ (soul): It is pure-whole-bliss; a pure thing will always remain pure. It is never subject to good or bad qualities and being whole, it is also causeless. It cannot incur upon itself the sheet of actions (karmas). Being causeless, it is devoid of actions. When it is encased in a body shell, it is the body-mind-intellect combine that discharge actions and consequently bring upon themselves the inescapable tentacles of the cause-effect (action-reaction) of factuality. It is this combine that caused actions, whether good or bad, so naturally, it would suffer the resultant consequences. Soul (spirit) being causeless-pure is obviously out of karma’s (action) clutches. But it is the soul that suffers the fruits of the body. It is soul that is encased in a variety of shells. There is no difference between soul, spirit, consciousness and awareness? All are one, pronounced according to occasion and need.

    One God!
    Pl. make a thorough study of major religions of the world & Take notes of the gospels they preached. To your utter bewilderment you would find that till so far, we had been misled to believe that all religions taught us the oneness of the God! Not a single religion either believed or taught that there was one God. Every Prophet who supposedly spokes the words of His God told His followers, there was (is) only one father (God) whose messenger (son) he was. Only His god (Father) was Truth, all others belonging to other religions were not the true messengers of God. It was further, allegedly, revealed in each case, that in future ages, only their messenger (belonging to that particular sect) would come and save the followers who would be the adherents of that faith.
    As I understood then, each religion had its own God, who spoke through His chosen messenger/prophet, had different ideology, identity, and gospel. Though each ‘chosen one’ heard the spoken words of His God and wrote them, which later on came to be known as Sacred books of each religion, but the scope of the contents, incorporated in them was meant only for the adherent/followers of that particular faith. On the surface each preached for the universal brotherhood of man but in theology and reality, each faith (religion) had erected strong walls of codes and conducts which separated them from other religions. So much so, even the Messengers promised their followers a rosy heaven and everlasting hell for the heathens. No religion spoke with the changing times. Rather with the coming of machine age, most of the religions became redundant and lost their worthiness.

    I don't pretend to know the details of each religion's beliefs, its too confusing for me. So many religions and so many scriptures...

    Jesus was supremely pure and sacred. To forget Jesus' teachings and to profess love for Him is no love at all. You must all remember: "God is One. Love is God. Live in Love." There is no use in merely invoking the name of Jesus and praying to Him without regard to His most vital message: "God is in everyone. Do not revile anyone. Do not cause harm to anyone." This was Jesus' greatest message. Jesus sacrificed his life to establish "Peace on earth and goodwill amongst all human beings”. Without peace, mankind cannot achieve progress in any sphere, be it material, spiritual or moral. What the world needs today is the redeeming and unifying force of love that Jesus gave - love which continually expands and embraces more and more people. Mankind should become one family. The world will then become a paradise. Hence today onwards, give up narrow ideas regarding your religion, nation, caste or creed, and develop a broad outlook. I wish you all happiness.Baba
