The Spirit World is the real world and the true home of human souls. The Spirit World is the answer to the question “where do we come from and where do we go after we die?”
“The other world is a realm where thoughts are realized. It is the real world”The Laws of Happiness p.111
The Spirit World is of a multi-layered structure. It is divided into many different levels (dimensions) according to the state of mind of the spirits who live there. There are levels in the Spirit World ranging from the fourth to the ninth dimension. The higher dimensions are inhabited by spirits who are closer to the mind of God (Buddha). As the spirits ascend to the higher dimensions, they move further away from worldly or human attributes, becoming spiritually free and limitless beings.
Fourth Dimension – The Posthumous Realm
The fourth dimension is the lowest level of the Spirit World and it is divided into the Astral Realm and the Realm of Hell. The Realm of Hell is a world of delusion and suffering. It is not a big world such as to be the equivalent to the Heavenly Realm. Hell exists in a part of the fourth dimension as an asylum for souls that forgot their true spiritual self and led a deluded way of life on earth. The inhabitants of the Astral Realm possess some degree of enlightenment as spirits, but their ideas and way of thinking are bound to worldly things. The inhabitants of this realm have the closest lifestyle to the way of life on earth.
Fifth Dimension – Realm of Goodness
The fifth dimension is known as the Realm of Goodness and is the world inhabited by those whose thoughts are good. It is the world generally known as “Heaven.” The people of this world have the will to treat those around them in the way they themselves like to be treated. The souls of the fifth dimension understand the value of giving love; they bless others and reflect upon themselves, and their hearts are humble and pure.
Sixth Dimension – The Realm of Light
The sixth dimension is known as the Realm of Light and is the world inhabited by excellent leaders who possess good thoughts and can put spiritually nurturing love into practice. The upper level of the sixth dimension is the beginning of what is known as “the realm of the high spirits,” the realm inhabited by those who have attained the state of Arhat and are aiming to become Bodhisattvas or angels. The inhabitants of the sixth dimension are studying the knowledge of God’s (Buddha’s) Truth while undergoing further spiritual training.
Seventh Dimension – The Realm of the Bodhisattvas
The seventh dimension is the world inhabited by angels or Bodhisattvas and is known as the Bosatsu or Angelic Realm. It is a world of true love. The inhabitants of this world have selfless minds; they live to serve God (Buddha) and work for the salvation of human souls. They concentrate their mind on how to lead human beings to do good and put God’s (Buddha’s) Truth into practice. They further deepen their spiritual refinement by focusing on how to increasingly interweave the mind of God (Buddha) into their practice.
Eighth Dimension – The Realm of Tathagatas
The eighth dimension is called the Tathagata Realm. It is the world where the leaders of the angels (Archangels) and Bodhisattvas live. Tathagatas are great souls that bring religious sects into being and create the ‘spirit’ of the various ages. The attributes of the human soul have faded for the inhabitants of this realm and they exist as huge bodies of consciousness. They have a thorough knowledge of their essential freedom as spirits, and when it is necessary to take action, they can divide their consciousness into as many parts as needed.
Ninth Dimension – The Cosmic Realm
The ninth dimension is known as the Cosmic Realm or the Realm of Saviors; it is the world where saviors, who can launch global religions, live. Ten great spirits, who have been involved in the matters concerning this planet Earth ever since it was created, live in this realm. Each of them is a source of the prism of seven-colored light that shapes the characteristics of the terrestrial spirit group. In the highest sacred zone of the ninth dimension, the Supreme God, Lord El Cantare exists. He is the source of the light; of love, compassion, wisdom and courage. Lord El Cantare is the father of human souls, guiding the whole of humankind to spiritual evolution and eternal happiness.
