Something mysterious and fascinating about the Quran is this partnership we have with God. God is closer to our jugular vein as expressed in the Quran.
And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.
Yet, God is also this powerful source of creation of the entire universe and absolute truth, that is far from a human being’s grasp. So how can God be closer to us than our jugular vein, and far above us in Heaven on a throne?
When the Quran talks about “records” or the evil people will know what they have done in the end…it actually talks about how the pure state of consciousness that you have inside will be free to judge how well you lived your life. No matter if a soul has pushed down and repressed the wrong they have done, it all comes out in the end when you are no longer your “ego” and your individual personality.
And every man’s augury have We fastened to his own neck, and We shall bring forth for him on the Day of Resurrection a book which he will find wide open.
Notice how it says the “book” which will be wide open? This is the mind that will be laid open for you to reflect back on and for God to see. Your mind will be able to be read like a book and the deeds you have done will be carried inside your memory or subconscious.
God is this energy behind that consciousness that brings forth the truth to you. But there is judgement no matter if people don’t want to believe it or not, and the judger is YOU with God. The judgement is not outside your own self.
[It will be said], “Read your record. Sufficient is yourself against you this Day as accountant.”
So many atheists and people on non faith today do not want to believe in God, because they don’t want to believe there are consequences to their life actions. I am sorry to say, but that is because they are looking at the consequences all wrong. It will not be an outside God punishing you for your deeds with a lighting rod, it will be your pure soul that is ALREADY connected to God that will punish yourself because you have not learned what you were meant to before coming back to God. As long as this punishment goes on, I can not tell, that part remains unknown. But it seems that the punishment is connected to viewing the truth and discovering it for yourself when God shows you your record.
The “fire” and “hell” experienced will be within your own soul once you learn the truth of what you have done to others or not done for others. Guilt is a torment on the soul, and this is what Hell will be.
So live life in full control of your Book of Life. Live without regrets and with a clear conscious. Don’t worry what others are doing, they all have their own soul journeys to go on. Worry about your own soul, because when that time comes.. your mind will be laid out in front of you and in order to experience Heaven, you will need to like what you see.
