Is it our consciousness and when we meditate (with full devotion) it helps us connect to god? But how is full devotion obtained? When your mind is stubborn(kind of a curse)

The soul is not a fully physical thing, but is semi-physical like air kind of. Invisible, but there all the same. It is located behind the forehead. Guruji talks about pre-ordained destiny being ingrained on our foreheads.

The 1st Pauri of Japji Sahib says that the only way to break through the web of Maya is by following gods command. God commands us to do many things like to be good people and to connect to him and to stop the panj chor (5 sins). But how? How can this be done? This is answered in Pauri 4. By chanting the lord's name and keeping god in our minds, the lord brings us through the path. What we need is given to us. There is no need to try to open your chakras or do all these kriyas for things. God gives us all we need from doing naam simran. If you do a lot of simran each day, over time you will find your life getting better ever so slowly, and you will find it that gods name will ever be on your tongue.

On days when you have time to, give a dasvandh of your day to naam simran. That is 10% of the day. That is 2.4 hours, which is a little less than 2 1/2 hours.
