The University of Spirituality is a resource for information and guidance pertaining to the numerous aspects of Spirituality. The Spirit, The Soul, The Human Energy System, Healing, Past Lives, Out of Body Experiences, Self-Realization, Immortality, God, and last – but certainly not least, the biggest barrier to it all – Karma. The University of Spirituality is also a satellite branch of something much larger – with extraordinary implications: a school that exists in the 5th dimension.
These pages reflect the contents of a three-volume course of instruction called ‘The Master Within,’ authored by Bodan. The course comprises a comprehensive engagement in the self-help genre of personal growth. Volume one is titled ‘Building Our New Home Within the House of God.’ Volume two is titled ‘The University of Spirituality.’ Volume 3 is titled ‘Exercises and Class Notes.’ The Master Within refers to the soul – that elusive and mysterious entity that guides us through life experience. The main theme of the course is to befriend and align yourself more closely with the soul, thereby providing greater freedom to explore your greater potential. The course is basically comprised of four learning modules. These modules are reflected on the site pages, blog subjects, and on the video workshops. The first learning module consists of An Introduction to Basic Spirituality.
What is Spirituality?
Spirituality has been defined in numerous ways. In general, these include a belief in a power operating in the universe that is greater than oneself, a sense of interconnectedness with this power and with all living things, an awareness of the purpose and meaning of life beyond conventional terms, and the development of aspirations and personal values. Spirituality is commonly thought of as one’s personal pursuit of the divine and is not bound to any particular religious tradition. Many seekers value the existence of different spiritual paths, emphasizing the importance of finding one’s own individual path to spirituality and a greater understanding of God and the absolute.
Spirituality has a positive effect on us in many ways. Spiritual practices tend to:
- improve coping skills and social support
- foster feelings of optimism and hope
- promote healthy behavior and lifestyles
- reduce feelings of depression and anxiety
- encourage a sense of relaxation and freedom.
By alleviating stressful feelings and promoting healing ones, spirituality can positively influence the immune system, thereby helping us ward off many ailments.
Spirituality helps us better manage the struggles of life, and helps us understand why things happen to us, what we can do about it and what we can learn from the process. Spirituality also provides answers to the key questions in life: why we are here, where did we came from, is there life beyond the physical arena, and how do our lives fit into the greater scheme of things.
Spirituality is an expression of the soul and is the most important quality we all have. A truly amazing system of energy, your spirit is an integral part of your internal make-up, assisting you with whatever you wish to achieve in life. The energy of your spirit stimulates hidden abilities that lie dormant within you, thereby helping you realize your greater potential. The basic requirement in accessing your spirit is acknowledging its presence at the heart of your being. The act of placing yourself in the presence of this higher power and allowing yourself to become united with this pure intelligent energy promotes faith, hope, compassion, forgiveness, altruism, healing, security and love.
The Master Within
The second learning module is based on the central theme of Building Our New Home Within the House of God, a new concept for the inner journey based on volume one of the master within course. The course explores the idea of constructing a spiritual home from within the essence of the soul using universal energy as the building blocks. We already have the tools and materials within ourselves to build our new home, and it is the most important construction project we can ever undertake. IT IS YOU WHOM YOU ARE FIXING TO BUILD – YOU ARE THE CENTER OF THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS.
The University of Spirituality
The central theme of the third learning module is attending The University of Spirituality – a mystery school that exists in the fifth dimension – all based on volume 2 of the Master Within series. Volume 2 continues the process of building a new home and a new you. We introduce the Self-Guru teaching concept, a method whereby the student learns through his or her soul. The Self-Guru method of development has always been available to us; we simply have not been aware of it. The concept may seem a bit eccentric, but the result of this teacher-student relationship is a rekindled friendship with yourself, a reassured self-presence, and a vibrant creative expression of your spirituality. It is all up to you.
Barriers to the Process
The fourth learning module is dedicated specifically to the barriers associated with the self-growth process, and by extension – life in general. The fourth area centers on a single subject. That subject is karma. Karma is something that affects us regularly, we’re just not aware of it. In fact, karma is really the root of all barriers. In other words, we face illness, disease, accidents, injury, pain and loss – these hardships, these barriers – are connected in some way to your karma. Understanding karma constitutes the primary learning objective of the entire course because it’s really the only barrier that stands in the way of becoming more closely aligned with the soul and coming to know God more fully.
The University of Spirituality’s Curriculum is not structured in any ordinary sense. There are no degree programs or certificates, though the potential for what you can achieve by tapping into your own internal teacher far surpasses any formal measure of success. Far too much time and energy is expelled searching outwardly for truth. The pursuit of truth is an individual quest found only through the inward search of the soul. It’s all up to you!
