Millions of light years before the Primordial Day ¹, God
wished to see how beautiful he was.
HEN THIS THOUGHT CROSSED
his mind, an embodiment of his
beauty manifested before him: the
Divine Reflection. When God saw his own
reflection, he fell in love. This is why it is said
in spiritualist circles that God himself is Love,
Lover and Beloved. Love is the most ancient of
God’s attributes and it pre-exists all creation.
Divine love itself is the gist of all religions and
the spiritual systems of every religion points
aspirants towards God’s love.
Now as the orthodox religions have failed
humanity, His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi is
introducing the Religion of God: rapturous love
of God. Through the pure spiritual sciences, His
Divine Eminence is inviting humankind to obtain
God’s love regardless of their religious affiliation
(or lack thereof). The Religion of God does not
have anything to do with the bodies; rather, it
is practised wholly by the souls. Since it is the
Religion of God, it is immortal just like God. It
existed before the beginning of time and it will
continue to exist for eternity. In the past, it was
confined to the elite of God’s Friends. However,
now is the time for humanity to go through the
long-awaited spiritual revolution!
It is the soul which will enable you to know
God. It is the soul which will allow you to have
the divine understanding of love. Without
enlightenment of the soul, you are naïve to the
most sacred and ancient emotion of God: love.
You cannot comprehend the manifestation of
true love because your soul is dormant and you
are not using the inner faculties of life.
When you adopt the Religion of God, you
adopt God’s lifestyle. You learn the way God
behaves and conducts himself. You begin to show
compassion and mercy to all; you become soft-
hearted and forgiving just as God is. The Religion
of God has not been established by any prophet
or through any revelation. This religion existed
even when there were no religions, prophets or
His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi, with His
authority and power, is teaching humanity the
method of bringing God into their hearts. When
God enters your heart, it becomes an eternal
dwelling of God. This is when God manifests his
attributes in you and you begin to change. You
become divine and you do not need to make
efforts to learn God’s attributes.
His Holiness Younus AlGohar notes,
‘A perfect man is one who successfully
manages to accommodate God inside
him. Without God living in you, you are
an incomplete human being.’
Now is the time when spiritual love should and
will prevail. It doesn’t matter what religion you
practise. Through the spiritual sciences, you can
continue to practise your current religion, and at
the same time, your heart will be filled with God’s
presence. This is when you will be a practitioner
of the Religion of God. It is not possible that
you love God but you hate human beings. One
who loves God will definitely — by nature of
love — involuntarily love humanity.
1 The Primordial Day was the day all the souls assembled before
God and their fates were decided. A detailed explanation of the
Primordial Day can be found in The Religion of God (Divine Love)
by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.
