The Secret behind Understanding how Spiritual Guidance Works

       The premise required for truly understanding how life works and how we successfully communicate with what we call the spiritual realm (which is really our self on a higher plane), is to start from the idea of unity rather than separation or dividing ideas up into separate parts that appear independent of each other. All of life is unified and exists as a functional part of the same coherent reality as the mind. The mind is the unifying factor not only within the material world, but also what connects multiple planes that act together simultaneously to form what we experience as reality. The mind has what we can think of as three different aspects that perform different functions in creating the same coherent reality. The mind is masculine, feminine, and androgynous, which defines the principles of each aspect and how it operates utilizing active aspects to seed and impregnate the passive aspect in order to create on multiple levels all at once. The mind, like light itself, exists as both a material being (particle) and a reality or full Eco-system (field) simultaneously, in which the material being lives and experiences itself.

      While many believe that what we call the self-conscious mind, which is the aspect of the mind that forms an awareness of itself by observing the outer world of our material existence, “is” the aspect of higher consciousness, it’s actually the masculine aspect of the subconscious mind, which is normally perceived as the feminine aspect. The subconscious mind of an individual is born into the body pregnant with the self-conscious (son) aspect which it then acts to birth systematically through a natural growth process. As our self-conscious mind begins coming into being as an awareness of ourselves that’s independent of our parents (adolescence), we begins forming our “identity” as the basis for creating ourselves as an individual instead of as an aspect of a group mind (family unit). This is the active component of the subconscious and is basically unconscious itself in terms of knowing its true identity as a higher, creative being. The self-conscious aspect is what fashions itself “as” its identity based on the relationship it forms with others and its material environment.

Spiritual Guidance from our Higher Self

       All spiritual guidance is actually self-guidance that takes place between multiple planes by utilizing the active component of the higher mind to seed the passive component which then produces it as a part of the outer environment, allowing the self-conscious mind to recognize it intuitively as the answer to a prayer or the means that will lead to the resolution of a wish. Our self, soul, or mind that exists on a higher parallel plane or dimension, acts “on itself” within the lower plane by giving the subconscious a suggestion as a metaphorical idea that it acts to give birth to as a material reality through its inherent connection with the subconscious mind (collective unconscious) of the entire human race and Nature. The self-conscious mind then acts to witness and become aware of it as a part of its normal experience. It not only shows up as signs, messages, coincidences, or beneficial connections of some kind, but also as feelings, mental impressions, notions, hunches, and intuition of various kinds designed to influence the decision making capacities of the self-aware mind. When we recognize the signs, messages, and feelings and choose to act on them in some way, a synchronistic chain of events takes place that serves to “lead us” into the reality of our wish or inquiry.

      Within the material plane of Nature, all living beings “receive” their intelligence and knowledge as a species through the subconscious, unified plane of the collective unconscious in a spontaneous and automatic way. Even though most humans have been seriously disconnected from their natural instincts, we experience this same idea as knowledge that comes to us out of thin air (pops into our mind) as what we refer to as inspiration and intuition. When we pray and tune into our higher nature with a desire for creating, and we turn all of our attention inward, and converse with deep sincerity and reason, we’re actually using our subconscious as the means to communicate with our higher consciousness. We’re connecting the two active components with the passive feminine component that acts as a link between them (planes) and transmit a message to the aspect of ourselves (notice this is always plural) that exists “above and outside of” the lower plane (time and space). The active will of our Higher Mind not only acts to command and direct the subconscious by seeding it with an idea to be created, but also organizes the entire material plane as the unified field of instinct and intuition to cooperatively produce the reality of our request.

       Our lower, self-conscious mind, which most mistakes for being our true self, not only is unaware of its true identity as a divine being, but is also run and controlled by the subconscious as its creative counterpart. This is self-evident by the fact that most, if not all of our normal thoughts are habitual in nature and run through our mind in a repetitive and redundant manner based solely on memory of some kind. Most people’s conscious thoughts and imagining is driven by and the product of their emotions, impulses, and passions. This idea is further exemplified by the realization that many, if not all of our thoughts came by way of what we’ve been taught, conditioned to believe, and by whatever we give our attention to through reading, watching, listening, and take in as entertainment of some kind.

       In other words they come as the result of whatever we passively absorb and allowed to take hold in our mind and develop into a detailed reality by continuing to think about them. When we self-reflect and turn inward to observe our thoughts we usually find that they come as the dynamic replay of past memories, scenes from a movie, lyrics to songs, concepts imagined while reading, news reports, and conversations of some kind. We can notice that what we thought today is the same type of things we thought about yesterday, a week ago, last month, and so on. Most of what we think of as “our own thoughts” is actually slightly modified interpretations of thoughts and ideas that were given to us (unconsciously absorbed) by an outside source. As we think about them by imagining them as a reality and experience of some kind, we integrate them into our memory bank where they become a natural part of our mind and reality.

      What we call “true guidance”, while it comes to us in a similar way via our subconscious in what seems like an automatic way, doesn’t come from an outside source as “another”, but from an inside source as an extension of ourselves. While guidance may come “through” something we read, see in a movie, end up in a conversation about, through a new connection, a sign or intuitive realization of some kind, it always comes as an intimate response to a specific inquiry or wondering. This is one of the ways we identify it as a direct response to a recent request. Whatever form the intuitive guidance comes in, only has meaning for us and not anyone else. There’s always an intimate feeling that allows us to realize it’s an actual response to an intention we’ve chosen and firmly set in our mind. Our Higher Self operates on the entire lower plane of the subconscious to organize it into specialized patterns based on the choices we make for creating as our very thoughts and feelings. What we think about is the most basic use of choice and free will that we employ without realizing that that’s what we’re doing.

       The other problem we can have without realizing it because we don’t really understand how intuition works when engaging in a deliberate manner, is that the subconscious is “programmed” or “seeded with an idea” for creating as a reality through a “metaphor” or “symbolic idea”, rather than a specific one. If we give it a specific one it treats it like a metaphor and uses it to create as a correspondence. This allows the basic idea of the wish to be created by whatever complementary elements are available within the immediate environment. All realities as guidance come about in a perfectly natural way. All ideas are universal in nature which allows for a dynamic adaptation to whatever conditions and circumstances exist to be utilized for creating the “same type of idea” as a modification.

       The subconscious works out of specialized patterns that it uses energetically to organize material elements in near proximity of it into the same type of pattern through a “cooperative effort”. All of Nature is cooperative and congruent in nature and readily forms whatever pattern as a reality it’s given without argument or resisting. It works by way of law and only uses what will participate naturally due to being of the same nature (frequency). We often don’t recognize guidance as a response to a prayer when it comes because it doesn’t come in the same form we imagined it would, and so we discount it, write it off, or ignore it altogether. This is further exacerbated by the fact that guidance nearly always comes as steps to a greater process. We’re required to take action on every step in order to actively (cooperatively) participate in its co-creation which comes as a synchronized flow of events that form a kind of pathway. Often the reality of our request can’t naturally come through our current conditions, and so we have to change positions and create the right conditions in order for it to come naturally.

      Because all things only come to us by way of our own choices and actions and our ability to recognize the significance of things and then “choose to take action” on them in order to produce them in a cooperative manner, many ask for things that they’re not truly willing to participate in creating, and instead expect it to be given to them through a single event or as if by magic or “divine intervention”. This fact is revealed by the saying that “God only helps them who help themselves”. All creation on the material plane only comes through our active participation in the guidance received from our self on a higher plane. All true guidance is a natural form of self-guidance being administered through multiple planes of existence simultaneously and comes as our own voice and intuitive awareness.

The Masculine and Feminine Principle of the Soul, Mind, and Body

  All spiritual ideas that represent laws and principles are conveyed in symbolic form as metaphors, analogies, and allegories that demonstrate the principles as creating in the material realm. The material world itself exists as symbolic form of the spiritual. The spiritual plane exists in a state of wholeness as pure potential that’s unformed, yet forms the basis for all material manifestations as the result of choice, will, and imagination. All matter exists as both a particle and a wave simultaneously. The wave is a “field of potential” as archetypes that exist as a theme that contains all the information necessary to produce realities of an infinite variety based on how it enters into relationship with the infinite mind of the individual vibrating at the same frequency, which resonates with a singular possibility as an idea that it chooses by absorbing, allowing it to impregnate the imagination with a seed that it then grows into a full-fledged reality by continuing to think about it. As we think about a newly conceived idea, we develop and construct it through a process of adaptation to produce a unique variation of the same general idea. When an idea as an archetype is drawn into the womb of the imagination, it’s united in relationship with the sensory-emotional state of the body (individual mind), where it undergoes a process of adaptation that grows certain aspects to various degrees, while leaving other aspects dormant, producing a modified version of the general idea (archetype) that forms a template as a possibility for manifesting a reality within the context of their everyday life. All of what we call “reality” exists as a personal creation of a universal theme formed by the relationship that naturally takes place between the masculine and feminine, which together birth an offspring that’s a combination of both to form a new whole. The Monad, Dyad, and Triad The Monad (the number 1, represented by a sphere with a center) symbolizes the soul or mind in its unified state as containing both the feminine and masculine attributes as polar forces within its own nature. The mind on the material plane consists of both the subconscious (feminine) and conscious (masculine) as complementary aspects of the same mind that play different roles in the same overall operation. The Monad, when descending into the dense plane of matter, regenerates itself by dividing into dual aspects, forming the Dyad as both the inner and the outer, the self and another, and the Me and I. This principles is expressed in the Biblical allegory as the creation of man, first as Adam (hermaphrodite), who was divided by the feminine aspect of itself being “cut out of its side”, producing Eve as its dual aspect, who together form a unified whole as a single entity. This not only allows for companionship in terms of not being alone, but also provides the basis for entering into relationship with itself in (the illusion of) another, and in doing so being able to “see” aspects of itself normally hidden as unconscious aspects through the perception of the other in its own image. As long as they were side-by-side, they couldn’t see each other (themselves in the other), so they were turned to face each other. By facing each other they act as a mirror which reflects back to them their shared nature. All single and individual entities still maintain dual aspects that make up its basic nature as both feminine and masculine aspects, not only represented by the dual nature of the mind as the subconscious and conscious minds, but also as the two hemispheres of the brain (right and left), and the symmetrical structure and function of the heart, which acts as a dual pump beating together in unison forming a single cardiac cycle. Whatever gender as the sex of an entity determines which aspects are more than likely dominate and which ones are passive in terms of degrees of activity and which aspects were stimulated and appealed to through our formative conditioning, and strengthened through utilizing most often in the dynamic being played out in our everyday life that we participate in by playing a role. These dual aspects of masculine and feminine energy always exist in polarity of each other as complementary opposites that serve to stimulate each other into an active and dominate state as forming different roles in the same dynamic, operation, and cycle. While we’re all born with a preformed nature as what’s been developed in us (our soul) up to that point, forming our subconscious memory that automatically gives us a natural predisposition, temperament, and tendencies, we are consistently undergoing a form of evolutionary growth by what complementary energies are being expressed around us that we naturally enter into and coexist in relationship with that serve to stimulate and bring out in us the opposite aspect of the same quality that forms the basis for the nature of the interaction as a dynamic (thematic pattern), that develops that aspect through that specific dynamic, conditioning us to it, and reforming us accordingly by strengthening some aspects while others remain latent and unused in their potential state. Likewise, every “quality” as a way of being that’s ideally played out through different types of dynamics (stories) exists in a polar relationship as a “range” that moves from a negative expression (destructive) to a positive (constructive) one. The opposite qualities as aspects that form our character can only be known, accessed and brought out for possible development through expression, by contrasting and seemingly opposing each other through a common dynamic or state of which they both play a part as a role that leads to a different experience as an outcome. Fear, for example, has as a potential relationship and manifestation of both cowardice and courage. Whichever one is stimulated or actively chosen and used in relation with the fear, determines not only the outcome or result that’s produced by the fear, but also who we “become” by way of either a passive or active use of choice and free will. The feeling itself as an emotional sensation contains within it not only the polar aspects as potential for expression and creating, but a whole range of possibilities as degrees that separate and differentiate them. How we respond to it in terms of how we perceive it and behave as a result, is a form of our creative ability through choice and will, and is either made in a passive and unconscious manner, where we don’t perceive a choice and just respond in an automatic, instinctual manner as our tendencies and inner nature, or it’s made in an active and intentional manner through self-awareness that chooses to counteract unconscious tendencies and break automatic patterns, and so courage is chosen in light of fear. We’re always in the process of creating our experiences of reality and ourselves by way of those experiences through our ability to consciously choose and willfully act out our choice, whether it’s done in a passive or active manner. In other words “no choice” is a choice. The Dual Nature of the Self – the “Me” and the “I” What we call the “Self”, like the soul, mind, and reality, is three-fold in nature, and dual in nature on the lower, material plane. These seemingly two selves work in perfect unison and conjunction as separate (opposite and complementary) forms of consciousness that perform different parts of the same operation. We’re all born into this world initially with only our subconscious (feminine) mind active and fully functioning and is what forms the “personality” of the body, which consists primarily of hereditary gene’s and memories that are further established and developed by our family unit, which share the same genes and are conditioned to the same dynamics as tendencies (memories) inherent in the genes as a form of instinct, that forms what we sense, perceive, and come to call “Me”. The Me of the personality is the identical twin that births and gives rise to the mental “I” (identity). Though these twin aspects appear to be different in terms of their consciousness and characteristics, they’re both phenomena arising from the same will. The Me is often mistaken for the I because it’s the personality of the body as our most natural and primary sense of ourselves, which forms all of our natural perceptions, thematic interpretations, and behaviors out of the memory of our ancestors and formative conditioning. The personality is composed of all the things of the body – feelings (sensations), emotions, tastes, likes and dislikes, tendencies, connections, habits, characteristics, etc., all of which make up the constitution of the personality, also commonly referred to as the “lower self” that’s a member of the animal kingdom. All of nature in terms of plants and animals only possess the subconscious aspect of the mind, which lacks the ability to think in a separate and individual manner, outside of the species it’s a part of, and is driven purely by instinctual means as the automatic behaviors born out of tribal knowledge that all who are a part of that same species performs through unconscious impulses, while still having a personality of its own as unique characteristics that make it vary only in how it goes about performing the same behaviors. The personality of the body as our lower self that operates out of instincts (group memory) of the species as human beings, forms the “herd mentality” by rendering their will passive, and allowing it to be controlled and utilized by another. The consciousness of the body is subject to the Universal Laws that govern the subconscious nature of Rhythm and Polarity, that keep it moving between emotional extremes as the memory associated or inherent in the emotion, which is designed to produce automatic, impulsive behaviors. Because humans have the higher capacities of the mind to self-create within the material realm of the subconscious, all thoughts and perceptions that ultimately result in actions and deeds of some sort are emotionally driven. The emotions of the material, instinctual plane of species oriented memory, are what provide the template as a theme that shapes thought into thematic perceptions that form its behavior and its “sense of self” simultaneously by way of the experience created through its actions. Those who are “emotional in nature” and are run and ruled by emotional states that they feel helpless to control or lack an actual awareness of what’s actually happening and that they have the ability to control their emotions, tend to “live out of this state” and form their identity with it, bonding their soul (through identifying with it) to what is predominately a lower state of consciousness that makes them equivalent to the animal kingdom where they are being shaped and developed by blind forces that they allow to inhabit them. In this state of total identification with the body (animal nature), our sense of self is dependent on the body, and our body is something we require in order to know (experience) ourselves, and we begin associating our mind as belonging to and being produced by the body (formation of the false-ego). We begin imagining that the Self, like the mind that acts as a vehicle for it, is a product of the body, and therefore can’t or doesn’t exist without it, and in making this fundamental misconception as a mistaken identity, we render the soul mortal and capable of dying with the body. This is the birth of the false-ego where our perception of our “self” is created through identification with our body and the material realm, which dies with the body and is annihilated or made extinct. The soul moves between planes based on what it identifies with and creates itself out of as an “idea”, based on what qualities and abilities it employs through its identification. As we rise in the scale of consciousness and are able to disentangle our identity from the personality (Me) of the body, we begin realizing that the mind not only doesn’t belong to the body, but that the body belongs to the mind or the mental part of us that’s independent of the body and is what acts to “operate the body”. But even in this awareness there’s still a tendency to identify with the mental states, feelings, emotions, and so on that we experience as living within us. Because these are experienced within us, as us, it’s easy to mistake them as being an essential part of our “Self”. Yet by creating a sense of being separate from our body, we can also realize that we have the ability to change and direct these inner states in any way that we desire through active use of our will and imagination. By separating our “sense of self” from these inner feelings, we find ourselves in possession of our true Self, which is the “I” and the “Me” as dual aspects that together produce the “Self” as an active expression that produces the “experience of the self” through the mechanism of the body. The body can be recognized as the mental instrument or channel through which thoughts, ideas, emotions, feelings, and other mental states may be produced. The body as the feminine aspect may be perceived as the “mental womb” (Vesica Pisces) capable of generating mental offspring that become the basis for material reality. While many like to separate the spiritual from the material, the higher soul from the lower soul, the spirit from the soul and body, and so on, the fact is they’re all a part of the same thing, and one systematically emerges out of the other as a process of descending from higher planes to lower planes, and ascending from lower planes to higher planes. Spirit is comprised of both masculine and feminine aspects and is what acts to birth, operate, and sustain the entire causal, mental, astral, and physical world. The subconscious mind is passive and receptive in nature and has the latent powers of creation and generation of mental imagery of all sorts and kinds through the faculty of the imagination. The creative powers of the Feminine aspect of the mind are enormous on the material plane, yet it must receive energy and direction as a seeded idea from either of its “I” (active male) companions. The subconscious exists as the connective medium between active aspects of both the higher, spiritual plane, and the same plane of its equivalent Masculine aspect, both of which are capable of impregnating it with an idea as a seed for manifesting in its physical form. Awareness and realization of this principle brings with it enormous capacity for mental and creative ability to self-create by way of self-induced experiences. Conscious Self The conscious aspect of the mind is the aspect that can become aware that it (masculine) has the mental capacity to willfully direct the subconscious (Feminine) by intentionally subduing its emotional activity while introducing a thought as an idea into the imagination that it will develop and grow into an outer experience, that will allow the “I”, after actively creating it by way of the subconscious, to stand apart from its own creation and witness it as its offspring. This is the part of the self that has the ability to not only willfully and actively manifest an idea through the subconscious, but also has the ability to “project an energy” (life force) from the conscious to the subconscious as the process of willing through which the mental creation begins and proceeds into material manifestation. The Self, in the active conscious mode, can then act to witness its own creation in the imagination as a reality that’s being “viewed” both from within as a direct experience of it, and apart from it watching it play out like a movie. This is the dual aspect of the mind inherent in every person. Subconscious (Feminine) and Conscious (Masculine) Process of Creation The subconscious mind is the dominate aspect of the mind in the material world as the passionate forces that energize, organize, structure, and produce material form while imbuing it with characteristics that govern its behavior and how it functions or operates as an animation. This is because in its primary state it has both the passive and active components, and is what forms both the mental and emotional plane of instinct, thought, and automatic behaviors that are produced through feeling-emotional impulses, and has no will of its own (doesn’t perceive itself as separate from its maker), even though it acts to birth the self-conscious aspect of itself (on the same plane and level) as its personal will. It’s constantly being impregnated with seeded ideas as the memory of the species and genetic code that are inherent in the morphogenic (astral) field of which it’s a part. The subconscious acts to “draw in” and be the receptor for the seeded ideas and complementary energies of the Higher Will which it then systematically births as joint offspring. The subconscious-feminine then gives birth to the conscious-masculine aspect of the lower plane that acts to witness the creation of the Higher Will as its outer reality, which is produced as an extension of the self by way of the subconscious. It witnesses the outer world produced by the inner world of the body as being separate or being a part from it, and therefore doesn’t realize that it’s the result of its own creation, and imagines itself as being produced by the body and shaped by the events of its outer world, and therefore becomes subject to it. Once the conscious mind realizes the outer world is produced by the subconscious mind as the passive receptor of an idea that can be both unconsciously absorbed from the active will of others and the collective unconscious, or intentionally introduced through its own will, it can take an active role in exercising the ability to introduce desired ideas that are grown in the imagination while introducing the complementary emotion that sets the creative process in motion and directs its development with a sense of precision. Creation The entire lower (material) creation is a product of the Higher Will or the personal will, both of which are the same thing formed on different levels, perspectives, and degrees of consciousness. The Higher Will simply operates in a neutral fashion to play out soul memory as karmic patterns over and over, which can only be resolved, changed, and broken by active use of the personal will. While creatively operating out of a primarily unconscious state, we perceive life as happening to us beyond our control and having nothing to do with us in terms of being self-created through past deeds as memory continuing to be played out in a habitual and automatic fashion. The Feminine Principle is always the aspect receiving mental impressions, while the Masculine Principle is always the one giving the mental impressions. The Feminine aspect performs considerably greater work as what generates thoughts, ideas, and concepts, as possible realities in the imagination. It takes in and acts as the vessel for the “seed” as information in its potential state that it uses to build and construct a material body as its outer expression. The Masculine Principle contents itself only with the work of the “will” which introduces the seed into the imagination (womb) in an intentional and deliberate way. When the subconscious is not being seeded and directed by the inner, personal will, it still acts as the passive receptor for receiving mental impressions as suggestions from the active wills around it, from outside sources and the will of others being projected upon and into it. Through absorption of mental impressions of others, it creates the reality of their will instead of producing original and unique mental creations. By concentrating on an idea and giving continued attention to its inner development we intellectually employ both aspects of the mind and consistently produce original creations as our offspring. We take an active and willful role in our own creation by employing the creative capacity of our mind to move away from unconscious and adulterous modes of creation and into conscious, fully aware, and deliberate modes of creation. When we realize that what we perceive as our outer world is the projection of karmic memory being produced by the passive absorption of our Higher Will, showing us what we normally remain unaware of, and experience as happening to us instead of being our own creation, we can begin actively working with it by introducing thoughts and ideas into the subconscious mind that counteract it, correct it, and rewire our system as a new configuration (relationship), that serves to transform and evolve the memory to become the basis for producing a new experience of reality. By giving our subconscious mental impressions of a desirable nature, then nourishing and supporting those with consistent attention and thought, we transform our inner being by re-informing it with new patterns (ideas) that are projected outward and act to systematically modify our perception of reality, and how we experience ourselves through and by way of that reality, that alters and shapes our “sense of self” as an intentional act. The willful mind stimulates the creative portion of the mind, which generates a reality out of stimulation. Whatever is stimulated within us, is activated and brought out as the basis for creating an experience that develops us by strengthening those aspects. Most people are content to live their entire life out of the thoughts and ideas instilled in them by others through their formative conditioning by other minds and wills. Most lend their will to create themselves as the idea or progeny of others, without ever realizing what they’re doing and why, or that they have the ability to begin shaping themselves by way of their own ability to willfully rewrite the memories of the subconscious and begin telling a new story that transforms and evolves the soul by way of that story. When we take an attitude of being mentally lazy and assume a passive role, subject to the conditions and circumstances of our life, we are ruled almost entirely by the mind and will of others, allowing them to do our thinking and creating for us. To appreciate the magnitude of this idea all you have to do is realize how few original thoughts or ideas come from the average person. Most think that by adopting and claiming as their own whatever they’ve been taught, were told, read, watched, and accepted as true, and therefore acted to make real as their reality through the acceptance and belief in it. Summary The feminine is the primary principle of the mind operating within the material realm as its creator. The entire material world of what we call reality, including the body we inhabit, is produced and maintained by the creative power of the Feminine Principle, which has no will of its own, and is always acting as the passive receptor of the will as mental impressions and seeded ideas given as suggestion, that it turns into a reality in the imagination. The reality created in the imagination of the subconscious as its manifestation of will (Masculine Principle), is then “witnessed” by the conscious mind, both as it’s inner aspect and its outer reality which is produced as a projection of the inner, as being apart from it. Through our conscious perception of the outer world we experience our own inner, self-made creation. The outer world appears as an analogous correspondence to the inner imagining or an idea. The imagined reality as a living idea turns it into a vibratory frequency that connects us with that same idea in everything else, while simultaneously reordering the appearance of the outer world through resonance (making different components active and passive), forming our perception of it out of which we experience ourselves in relationship with it. The subconscious is programmed to produce realities by either aspect of the active (masculine) mind of both the Higher Will, which feeds it memory acquired from past deeds, or the personal will which has the ability to give it mental impressions of realities that contradict, and therefore transform the dynamic patterns of karmic memory, producing new realities and experiences in its place that become memories as the programming of the body and personality. For this reason the soul is referred to as feminine, and the will as the active force of both the Higher Mind and complementary aspect on the material plane as the masculine. These terms have nothing to do with sexual gender of being a man or woman (because we all have both), and are instead referring to the polar and complementary aspects as the dual nature and mind that’s creatively active in every individual and manifestation of reality. The soul, like the mind, has three aspects, all of which contain both feminine and masculine components that exist in polarity not only within the same plane, but within complementary and parallel planes of higher and lower, or smaller planes nested within greater planes, all of which interact by stimulating each other through feminine and masculine aspects which form a harmonious union as a unified creation of self and the reality in which the Self lives. The Higher Mind works through the feminine subconscious mind of the lower plane, which is passive and able to receive ideas for manifesting as reality. The masculine, conscious mind of the body, being active also, can’t receive ideas or guidance directly from the Higher Self, and relies instead on the subconscious to reflect the ideas in the imagination as mental impressions it’s been impregnated with, or through what’s being realized through the outer reality which is also being produced as a projection and reflection of the subconscious imagination. This is why in Esoteric literature the man is always depicted as looking at his female companion (wife) with his arms outreached, who’s looking upward at the angel that oversees both of them as their guiding light.

The Healing Power of Witnessing – Detachment, Relinquishing Judgment, and Mirroring

As a general rule, it’s very hard for us to ever really see anybody as they truly are, because just the act of perceiving another influences and distorts what’s being observed and interpreted as a means of creating an experience of it. All perception results from the relationship as an energetic interaction between the mind doing the observing and the object being observed. The mind of the individual exists as a vibratory structure of dynamically integrated patterns that forms a mental model (paradigm) that acts as the “lens” we look through to perceive everything else around us. As we observe something, we direct our attention onto and into it, and through a process of sympathetic resonance, influence it in terms of what’s stimulated and brought out in it in response to and relationship with us. As we conceive of something we act on it to alter how it “appears” to us, and by how we “remake it” by “blending with it” mentally and forming an interpretation of it that makes it out to be “like us” (of the same nature).

Our mind as a paradigm (dynamic model) is formed by the integration of all of our life experiences that together consistently produce a congruent reality that has a theme inherent in it as a “type of story” we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about everything as a way of understanding it, and through our understanding form our experience of it. While we can’t necessarily produce or outright change material reality in the objective and actual sense, we’re always changing how it appears to us as our experience of it. Our model produces a natural set of criteria for creating consistent experiences through our beliefs, values, memories, and what we accept as being right and true based on our conditioning and what dynamic we were raised playing a natural role in. This criterion becomes the filtering system we look through as a means of instantly interpreting things through generalizations that we apply across the board, robbing everyone and everything of their individuality and uniqueness, and reshaping them instead to fit into our judgments about them.

We form beliefs around our values that become preferences that act to distort and reshape everything we observe, perceive, and interact with to factually validate our judgments as being accurate and true. Because of our minds natural ability to transform reality through the simple act of perceiving it, we don’t realize that our most fundamental reality that we believe and imagine to be objective and fact based as neutral and a part from us, is actually a form of illusion as a distorted version of our own making. Anytime we interpret something to give it meaning, or tell a story about it that makes it mean something, we’re distorting facts and assigning the same qualities, characteristics and motives to others that we ourselves possess. The same criterion as a belief system formed out of values that we use to judge others, we’re simultaneously using to judge and shape ourselves in relation to our own projections and transpositions.

When we mentally and energetically merge into and blend with others, seeing them and their experiences through our own model and interpreting them accordingly, assessing them as being wrong, misled, or incorrect, and needing to somehow retell the story of their experience in terms of how we would have handled or went about the same thing, we never see others “as they truly are”, but rather as “we are” through them. We remake them in “our image and with our likeness” as a way of forming a relationship with unconscious aspects of ourselves in them. As we judge others through our values and beliefs about them, we simultaneously create an experience of ourselves in contrast to them, or as being just like them. What we find repulsive and antagonistic in others, that causes a distinct and pronounced reaction in us, is a quality or trait that we also possess that we’re not fully aware of and have denied having somehow, repressed and failed to acknowledge, of shaped ourselves through opposition to it. We naturally “react” to the opposite and complementary quality in others that we ourselves possess, which is why we’re reacting. It stimulates us, activating and bringing out in us the quality necessary to play out a joint dynamic as a co-creation. As a general rule, we typically create ourselves in two basic ways, by becoming just like someone else, or by contrasting and becoming the opposite. But either way, they’re both roles in the same dynamic, and we require that dynamic in order to “know ourselves” and actively continue to create ourselves through a role in that dynamic.

To detach from others, from our dependency on conditions, circumstances, and relationships as the means of knowing ourselves through others, and instead of projecting onto others by judging them then reacting to our own judgments, we self-reflect and become aware of the true nature of our judgments as something that’s alive and active within us, shaping who we are in a purely unconscious manner, we can begin gaining an awareness of aspects of ourselves that we’re normally not aware of. By withholding judgment and creating a sense of being separate and detached from others, while turning inward and observing the story playing out in our mind, we can begin realizing our own conditioning and the false illusions we’ve built around ideas that prevent us from seeing them in their origins as they truly are, without the need to transpose them onto others as a means of seeing what they are. We can know the hidden content of our own subconscious mind by realizing that it forms the basis of our perception of others and the world in general in terms of what we readily see, react to, and play an active role in mentally, emotionally, and behaviorally in co-creating.

The entire outer world in terms of our “perception” of it and what we naturally see (without conscious intervention), is created by the subconscious mind, whose content is predominately unknown to us, and only comes into our awareness as feelings, emotions, or impulses towards or away from things. It comes into our awareness through the memories that are referenced and drawn up in association to outer emotional stimulus of some sort. Through the memory the outer stimulus acts to naturally invoke, we can see how it was instilled in us and continues to live within us in an attempt to be resolved through our ability to “witness it” as it plays out in a variety of ways, both internally through our imagination (where memories play out), and externally through our perception (looking through the lens of the memory) and natural participation in the dynamic it implies, while remaining detached from it. All that’s really required to heal a dynamic as a tendency that’s of an emotional origin (which all are), is the ability to view and observe it as it plays out in you from a detached, dissociated, and third person perspective. Where you don’t need to explain or justify it as a means of defending it. The awareness alone brings self-realization as becoming aware of what was previously acting out without your direct awareness, and it loses its grip on you and resolves the unconscious tendency. Once we become aware of something that we were doing in an automatic fashion, we catch ourselves as we begin doing it, and no longer feel compelled to engage.

The conscious mind, which is the self-aware aspect of the mind that’s outwardly focused, has the ability to witness in a detached and objective manner, the mental impressions being reflected in the imagination, and the material manifestation of those memories being played out as unconscious motives in a variety of ways through our everyday life. By developing the aspect of ourselves that’s a part from the body and it’s emotional states, and isn’t dependent on the body for its identity, we can clearly see the illusions of the body as conditioned emotional states that keep us faithfully acting out formative conditioning in an unconscious and automatic manner as the very foundation of our experiences wrought through our perspective and perceptions of the outer world. Through the outward perception of our inward self, we form our “sense of self” within our own self-created experiences as a conscious relationship with unconscious aspects that together form our identity.

Once we learn how to detach from the judgments and perceptions of our conditioning, and no longer merge and blend into the perceptions of others, remaking them to be like us as a result, we can act as a witness for other people as well. By relinquishing and stepping outside of all judgments (good and bad) and conditioned beliefs as a way of experiencing them, we can see them as they actually are. We can listen to their story about their experiences without needing to change it in any way or form an opinion based on it, and in doing so act as a mirror to reflect back to them the reality of their own making that’s a projection of their subconscious mind, showing them in very direct terms what’s active and playing out in them as subliminal motivations that they’re primarily unaware of. By acting as a mirror and sounding board, where they can hear their own story, often for the first time with full awareness and no distorting influence, they too can become aware of unconscious aspects, and through the realization of what previously deluded them, a natural healing takes place as an alignment between both aspects of the mind.

The witnessing faculty of the mind is the aspect of ourselves that exists outside the consciousness of the body, both the subconscious and self-conscious, that’s not directly identified with the body and dependent on the body to know itself, and therefore can “see it” (the activity of the material mind) in a clear and objective manner. It “watches” the dynamic as a tendency played out in the imagination like a memory (movie), and how it manifests in a corresponding manner as external experiences. It’s the part of us that’s divine in nature and has its existence in the eternal realm outside of time and space, and acts to aid, guide, and comfort the lower self, confined within the body and determined by its unconscious conditioning as a form of bondage. This higher aspect of the mind provides us with the true means of healing when we employ it in an intentional manner.

By relinquishing the tendency as a perceptual filter for judging others as a means of creating our experiences of ourselves through them, and remaining separate and detached, no longer needing to change how they appear to us, we can see others as they actually are, and through this same awareness, see ourselves as we actually are a part from them. Through the higher faculties of the mind to witness the unconscious creations of the lower mind, healing spontaneously occurs for both people through the same act of awareness. The true key to all healing of the soul, mind, and body, is self-awareness and the realization it brings in terms of what’s really going on in every moment as a creation of the material mind. By using our higher mind to witness our lower mind, we act on ourselves to heal ourselves. The way to overcome the laws governing the lower planes, is to rise above it and work by way of the laws governing the higher plane, which serves to “orchestrate” and organize the activity of the lower planes.

By using this same faculty to witness the creation of other people’s minds, the realization it brings allows them to heal themselves, and heals those same aspects in us, because at the level of the higher mind, not located within a body, the “soul” exists in a unified state of shared memory as a part of the “collective unconscious” or “mass consciousness” based on archetypes that form the basis for all of our personal creations out of thematic ideas. Just through our ability to truly see an aspect in another from a detached and objective state, allows us to see that same aspect in ourselves, and again, through our ability to see it without the veil of an illusion, dissolves and resolves it “in us”. It only remains intact because we’re unaware of the fact that it’s a self-created illusion of our own making. The beauty of true healing, and how you know if it’s actually healing, is that it heals both people simultaneously through the same realization born out of a common ground.

Self-Mastery: Mastering the Ability to Control and Direct your Thoughts and Attention

While knowledge as theory gives us the basis for practice, we only truly “learn” (live and earn) by bringing the knowledge into practice somehow in our daily life. We only truly know what we attain through direct experience and can willfully demonstrate as a part of our normal abilities and behavior. Conceptualizing something in a purely theoretical form while frequently contemplating or discussing it will have a tendency to explore and penetrate the deeper levels of an idea, but until we “become one with an idea” and experience it in a direct way by being it, we never actually acquire or own it. Knowledge that’s contemplated or studied but never applied is merely a form of entertainment or mental hobby.  Whenever we study something, we’re always using other people’s ideas and perhaps imagining them in our own way, but we only really know if something is true or produces what it claims to through the direct experience of it.

We have to always maintain a sense of equilibrium between the body, soul, and spirit by utilizing them simultaneously through an actual practice. One-sided training is not only unproductive, but it can cause an imbalance that can be destructive and produce undesirable effects. This is obvious in our modern day society’s tendency to try and educate without first teaching the ability to control compulsive, random thinking and the ability to concentrate without interruption from unwanted thoughts for an extended period of time. The only knowledge we truly maintain at the eternal level of the soul, which is our “nature” that forms our character, is what we build into our muscle by turning it into a habit that becomes a part of our natural behavior, way of perceiving, and daily lifestyle.

Applying knowledge not only requires the knowledge itself as a theory of some kind that gives you the means to start, but it also requires you to develop “qualities” that are necessary in applying it. Theory is the intellectual aspect, practice is the intuitive aspect as a process, and art is the manifestation as a result. While we think in materialistic terms that we’re acquiring the skill implied by the knowledge, from the soul perspective, which is always about “being”, it’s the qualities we have to employ and develop in order to apply it that’s the actual knowledge in energetic and intuitive terms as a form of soul conditioning. In all spiritual practices the most basic conditions for development are intention, diligence, patience, perseverance, concentration, and devotion. It’s comes as a love and desire for the knowledge by becoming one with it in spirit, mind (soul), and body. It requires diligence and a deep sense of utter devotion. While you can be kind, forgiving, and lenient towards others, you must develop an attitude of being studious, unrelenting, and pitiless on yourself. You have to exercise a stringent form of self-discipline in everything you do. Set high standards and expectations, and then push yourself to not only achieve them, but master them.

Only what’s practiced in a consistent and diligent manner becomes a habit. When something becomes a habit it arises in us naturally. It becomes a part of our natural tendencies in any given situation and forms our natural perception and behaviors. By building practices into our daily lifestyle as a part of our normal routine, we faithfully employ them and develop ourselves by way of them. Once we have become accustomed to a particular exercise, the urge for it comes naturally. It’s only when we begin doing something as a natural part of our being that we have actually “acquired it” as part of our souls memory which forms our inner nature. We have to always be disciplined and diligent in all our efforts in order to progress and thereby ascend.

The very first step in any form of spiritual development is controlling, disciplining, and mastering your thoughts. The mind has a tendency to wander constantly and operate out of autopilot most of the time. Our thoughts come so natural and automatic that even when we are disciplining ourselves, we’re often in the midst of a thought process before we even realize what we’re doing, and are able to bring ourselves back into a focused state. This is perfectly natural, and in the beginning, when first employing your will to direct and redirect your thoughts, it’ll be a constant process. However, like anything, the more you’re able to stay focused and continually realize and direct your thoughts, the easier and more natural it becomes. This is why patience and perseverance are required. So don’t let yourself become discouraged in the beginning when it can seem somewhat difficult.

In order to cultivate abilities, we need to start off with simple practices that  we perform two or three times a day for five to fifteen minutes at a time. It’s recommended to do these in a balanced way in the morning upon rising, midday when relaxing, and in the evening. Start off with small time frames of 5 minutes, then as you master them, gradually increase the amount of time you spend doing them to 10 minutes. Increase the frequency you do each in whatever way is appropriate according to your daily activities. Always start with small steps and only after you have mastered each step, work your way up. Each process must be mastered before moving on to the next, because the next step requires full use of the previous step which lays the foundation for it. We have to be able to use certain abilities in order to perform other abilities that are an extension or outgrowth of it.

Equilibrium of spirit (still), soul (will), and body (automatic) are always important to maintain and practice together because they ideally operate in a cohesive manner. The problem most have with controlling and directing their thoughts is that the lower mind of the body that produces a continuous stream of automatic and redundant thoughts has been allowed to run unchecked, while the willful mind of the soul has been greatly underused or ignored completely, and the still, empty mind of the spirit is something many feel they can’t actually achieve. This is due to developing in an unbalanced way with sole emphasis on the lower mind. For this reason, development that’s undertaken intentionally must always be conducted in a balanced way, exercising all 3 levels of the mind and body. So for this exercise, which is in 3 parts, we’ll work on developing the ability to observe or simply witness your own thoughts and bring them under control, discipline and direct your thoughts through concentration, and the ability to master your thoughts by stilling and emptying your mind of verbal thoughts altogether and entering into the experience of pure being.

Preparation for each step:  All exercises should be done in a private and quiet environment where you won’t be disturbed for 5 to 15 minutes, while in a fully relaxed position.  Don’t do them when feeling tired, as you must remain fully awake and aware throughout the process. Awareness is key. It may be a good idea to splash your face and upper body with cold water before you begin. Do not fall asleep during these exercises or they won’t be beneficial.

  • Sit or lay down with your body fully supported.
  • Close your eyes to block out distraction, and focus on the rhythm of your breathing. Let your mind enter into the rhythm.
  • Relax your entire body by setting the intention to relax, then mentally directing it to relax, and then feeling it relax.

Step 1) Thought Control

       This step allows you to begin gaining an awareness of thoughts that normally operate in a completely automatic and unconscious fashion. This is the habitual and compulsive aspect of the subconscious mind controlling the conscious and willful mind. Whatever we focus on and think about we become, and we act to create more of in our present situation. When thoughts are allowed to run in an unchecked manner, we lend our will to them and we create in our life in an unconscious manner. On the spiritual plane “thought is action”, and thoughts are how we create in the most fundamental sense on the material plane. So the first step to any form of conscious development is gaining control over our thoughts through self-awareness and being able to intentionally guide and determine our thoughts in a willful manner.

  • Allow a natural train of thought to form and spontaneously begin free-flowing. Make no attempt to control these thoughts, simply observe them to become aware of what they are.
  • Notice that most pertain to whatever is happening in your life at the moment, issues that have a strong emotional content, family or relationship issues, job related issues, whatever is weighing on your mind, and simply redundant meaningless thoughts that are purely habitual and automatic in nature.
  • When thoughts arise that tend to “pull you into them” where you begin dwelling in them, simply stop, pull your attention away, and allow them to continue in a free-flowing stream of thought while silently observing them from a detached perspective of not being “in them as a part of them”, but rather remaining free and independent of them, observing them from a distance watching them as they flow by, or as they rise and fall.
  • Don’t try to control your train of thought or lose sight of yourself by getting side-tracked and dwelling in any one thought, but simply observe them in as attentive way as possible gaining an awareness of them.
  • Be conscious of everything, and don’t try to hurry the exercise. Let it flow naturally while giving it your full attention.
  • You’ll notice that in the beginning you’re bombarded with thoughts in an almost chaotic manner as they quickly pass by. Pay close attention to them and try to remember them.
  • As you become aware of what normally operates as an unconscious and automatic process, you’ll also gain a natural form of control over it. Awareness itself brings a sense of control as the natural use of your will.
  • You’ll notice from one exercise to the next that these thoughts appear less chaotic and will gradually begin diminishing until only a few thoughts emerge in your consciousness as if coming from afar.

Practice this first step until you gain the ability to easily control your thoughts by becoming aware of them. Mastering this first step is critical to the development of all other steps. In all forms of self-development nothing is more important than gaining control over your thoughts and being able to direct them in a willful and intentional manner. Only move on to the next step when you have completed this step sufficiently and have mastered it.

2) Thought Discipline and Developing Concentration

       This step deals with being able to concentrate our thoughts without letting other thoughts obtrude. What usually prevents us from concentrating solely on one idea for an extended period of time is that other thoughts having to do with our daily chores and annoyances spontaneously arise and distract us away from what we were thinking about. We must learn how to avoid thoughts that do not belong in our personal life while only entertaining those that do, and in doing so, we’ll become a different person altogether. In this exercise we will develop our ability to be present in our daily life in a fully attentive manner, and be able to concentrate our mind solely on one idea for an extended period of time without interruption from unwanted and meaningless thoughts.

  • Pick an idea, subject, or concept and direct all of your attention into that thought alone. As you concentrate on it and other thoughts obtrusively arise, redirecting your attention in an automatic fashion, become aware of them, and then simply remove you attention from them and place it back on your chosen subject. Resist all distractions repeatedly until they begin subsiding and you no longer have a problem staying focused for extended periods of time by maintaining full control of your attention.
  • Move this same idea out into your daily life and apply it in a broader sense. Whatever it is that you’re doing, be fully present in it with your full attention on it, and anytime a distraction arises as a thought that doesn’t pertain to the moment, become aware of it, and redirect your attention back into your present situation.
  • Remain present in your daily situations and only allow thoughts that pertain to the moment or situation occupy your mind. Anytime thoughts of the past or another situation arise and steal your attention, realize it, and redirect your attention back into the moment.
  • When you’re at work, block out thoughts of your personal life and focus all of your attention on work. When you leave work and go home to your private life, leave all thoughts of work behind, and think only about what pertains to your private life. As thoughts of work arise while in your private life, become aware of them, and consciously redirect your attention back into your present situation.
  • The more you practice the ability to control your attention, the easier and more natural it becomes.

This practice when mastered will have a huge impact on all areas of your life, and will greatly improve your ability to enter into a truly creative mode. The only time we can actually create in our life in an intentional and meaningful manner is in the “present moment”. Do not move on to the next step until this one has been mastered. Each step is required in order to be able to achieve the next.

3)  Mastery of Thoughts and Residing in Eternal Peace

This step teaches you how to create a complete vacancy of mind that’s void of thought and fully present in your inner sense of pure being. By subduing all active thought you enter into a fully relaxed state of inner peace and calmness. All stress subsides and you’re able to experience everything in a direct and actual manner rather than through the commentary of your thoughts. When all thought subsides we enter into a form of rapport with the present and we experience everything as it is in this moment without filtering it through the past and reshaping it to be like us through how we think about it. In this way, we form an entirely different relationship with life and become an entirely different person as a result.

  • Create a complete vacancy of mind while resisting all thoughts that try to command your attention. Empty your mind completely, and enter into a state of presence and pure being.
  • Rigorously reject any thought that competes for attention, and return to a complete mental vacancy. Do this repeatedly until thoughts begin completely subsiding and you exist in a state of pure beingness for an extended period of time.
  • Bring this same practice into the ordinary moments of your daily life by becoming fully present in whatever you’re doing, empty your mind of mental commentary and habitual thinking, and simply perceive things as they are in that moment. Form an expanded awareness of everything around you without letting thoughts about it enter your mind.

When you are able to stay in this state for a full 10 minutes, the purpose of this exercise has been achieved. This is important because it lays the foundation necessary for continued development.

Once you have mastered these three basic mind exercises and learned how to control and direct your attention and thoughts, you’ll be ready to move on to other steps in self-mastery that require self-control and your ability to use your will in an intentional and deliberate manner. By learning how to perceive things without a mental commentary or by bringing past ideas into the present and using them to create your experience of the present, you’ll be able to naturally correct perceptual errors that have become automatic and perceive things in a new light as they actually are a part from you and your preconceived judgments about them.

Spiritual DNA, the Soul’s Code, and the Subconscious Mind

  As humans we have what we can think of as a three-fold nature as three minds operating in one body, which merely acts as the vehicle or instrument of the mind, which not only serves to operate the body, but is also what constructs it and gives it life. The three minds exist on multiple planes and correlate with three-dimensional reality of what we call the material world. The three minds, known as the higher or super-conscious, the lower or subconscious, and the conscious or self-conscious  minds, exist as a single unit or unified field as a vibratory frequency that has dual electromagnetic properties that are self-creating, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining. The higher mind contains the two lower minds as inherent aspects of its dual nature, that all systematically emerge out of each other as a form of division that’s actually a form of regeneration, or in other words, one aspect births the other aspects as a form of growth process that undergoes a life cycle within the lower material realm. The higher mind, which exists entirely on a higher parallel dimension in its whole state, descends into the lower material realm through a form of division, much like cellular mitosis which regenerates itself as a growth process while taking on specialized functions within a whole living organism. The higher mind or over-soul impregnates a living cell (embryo) with a form of blueprint as an etheric hologram that’s used for cellular specialization and spatial orientation in constructing the whole organism. This etheric holographic map serves to systematically organize the cellular growth of the living organism that is imbued with the same qualities and characteristics of the parents (higher mind-soul) that acted to create it by infusing an energetic code with Life-Force Energy, multiplying it and growing it out of nothing, through a process of self-regeneration. The energetic code of the higher mind is a form of spiritual DNA as the soul’s code, and operates according to the same principles as the physical DNA, and together form a vehicle that’s of the same vibratory frequency or nature as the “soul-mind” that inhabits it through resonance and coherence. The soul attracts to and serves to give life to the body that’s of the same frequency, through a form of DNA match that’s comprised of various sorts of memory, which are compatible and ideally suited for each other. Just as our physical DNA has the memory and genetic code to structure the body, giving it distinct characteristics and tendencies, and carrying the memories of the ancestral bloodline, the soul is structured and comprised of memory from multiple lifetimes which are compatible to the ancestral memory of the body, and together, form a complementary and congruent experience of life as the “self”. All of life comes as a result of combinations, which through a process of natural selection (resonance) as dominant and recessive aspects of the same shared characteristics, form a new pattern or formula as a unique combination, which births a new variation, evolving it based on the expression of newly acquired characteristics and tendencies as temperament and disposition. The higher mind is born into the lower, animal body as the subconscious mind, which contains the self-conscious mind as latent potential and gives birth to it as its offspring through a natural growth and development process. The subconscious mind, which is the aspect of the mind that we share with the animal and plant kingdom (living organisms), operate all the biological processes of our body in an automated and natural fashion, requiring no awareness on our part, and is what gives us our personality as our natural disposition, temperament, tendencies, and style of behaviors. The subconscious mind is passive and receptive in nature, and acts like a sponge to only absorb and imitate what’s around it. All of the formative conditioning which comes through the parents, living situation and conditions, and behavioral dynamics that it’s a functional part of, all serve to activate and bring out certain traits that are apart of both the ancestral memory and the soul memory, and together acts to set the stage for continued development and expression of the active components, while other memory remains dormant as latent potential that’s available to be activated and brought into expression through proper stimulus. The self-conscious mind is birthed out of our subconscious mind around the age of seven or eight, and becomes predominantly active during adolescence. It’s during this time that we begin separating from our parents and forming our personal identity. Our “identity” (ego) is formed through our ability to begin thinking for ourselves, problem solving, making decisions, and forming an “image” of ourselves that create the experiences that we then use to self-create by how we identify or get a sense of ourselves within our own self-made experiences. The self-conscious mind is fully active and established around the age of twenty eight. We basically develop in four seven year increments, with the first two, birth through 14, establishing our subconscious formative conditioning where we create without any direct awareness as an extension of our family and environment, and 14 to 28, establishing our self-conscious, self-aware mind that’s fully identified with the body (subconscious) that birthed it. The self-conscious mind is imbued with choice and free will in order to actively separate from their parents and become their own person as an individual. The self-conscious mind which establishes our identification as our body, social status, and lifestyle, is what’s commonly referred to as the ego. Yet ego and identity are actually the same thing, and in spiritual texts, the term ego is often used in place of identity. What, how, and who we become in life, is all about what and who we identify with or resonate and feel a connection to. The people we like and associate with, what type of experiences we create through the choices we make and the reality of those choices that we then “sense ourselves” through, is what forms the basis for the story we begin telling ourselves “about” ourselves that act to shape us as a certain type of person. We’re attracted to and naturally participate not only in certain types of situations and dramas, but also to certain roles within those situations and dramas. As we become adults we establish our identity as a lifestyle that’s built out of all the components and conditioning that went into making us who we are, all of which originated and became established through predominantly unconscious means. Even when we develop our conscious mind and start becoming self-aware, our subconscious mind and conditioned tendencies are what formed our mental paradigm, perceptual lens, and the thematic story we used as the means of interpreting the events of our life to give them meaning and significance. So all of what we call “self-awareness” originated from our unconscious mind as natural tendencies and perceptual-behavioral patterns that we were already programmed with and continued expressing as a means of creating ourselves. All of our perceptions serve to validate us by justifying whatever it is we need in order to maintain our perspective on things, and to validate, defend and keep telling our story about things. Our story about our life, what happened to us that made us the way we are, about the way people are, and the way the world is, becomes the reality we use as a belief system to create a consistent and congruent experience of life that makes sense to us, and is how we “act on ourselves”, through our own mental perception to create ourselves. The mind’s tendency to believe in its own illusions as the story born out of its conditioning as a trained mind-set that only utilized certain qualities and characteristics, while others remained latent, and forming their whole sense of self out of this body, these conditions, circumstances, and certain types of situations, is what forms a selective perception from a specific perspective as a self-imposed delusion that never recognizes that their true identity is as the creator of that story and not the effect of the story. When we mistakenly identify with our material circumstances and possessions, we create ourselves as mortal beings whose “self” dies with the body and is annihilated. This identification with the physical body simultaneously creates a fear of death and the tendency to desperately cling to life, without which, we would cease to exist. The awakening, which forms the basis for rebirth, comes when we are finally able to realize in very clear terms, that we are not the product of our story, helpless to change it, and subject to it, but rather the one creating the story, and creating our “sense of self” by way of our own story about things. Once we become aware of this, we begin simultaneously realizing that we don’t have to tell this story as a means of creating ourselves in life, but we are free to tell whatever story we possess the latent and natural traits, talents, and characteristics for. We can realize the true reality of things, and by experiencing our ability to choose and willfully act out our choices, we can activate our latent potential, and by bringing it out and learning to express it by deliberately employing those aspects and abilities, learn how to tell a new type of story. A story that puts us in control as the author and choreographer of our story, and the main character. We can become whoever we want to be, if we simply realize this and are willing to give up our story about things, which means losing our identity for the brief time it takes to begin reforming it. We’re all born with a dream for our life that lives inside of us and is known through our desire for it and imagining it as a form of soul memory. Our soul comes into life through the body with an intention for growth of some form, which only comes through utilizing our full potential for creating a certain type of experience through the story that we’re naturally designed to tell. First inwardly, by imagining and dreaming of it, then outwardly through taking action on it and willfully acting it out. All that’s required for actual growth and deliberate self-creation, is our willingness to give up and let go of our current story about things and about our life. Realizing that the only reason we’re attached to our story and don’t want to give it up, or feel that we can’t, is because we’ve built our identity out of it, and in giving it up, we won’t know “who we are”, which can overwhelm us with an extremely insecure and unsure feeling. Our awakening as our second birth, comes as an identity crisis where whatever we’ve built our life around begins disintegrating, falling apart, no longer working, and going away, leaving us with a kind of “clean slate” to build ourselves anew. In order to build a different structure, you can’t use the same foundation or footprint. You have to completely destroy, tear down, and rework the ground that the new one is going to be built on. You have to have a completely different set of blueprints. This is why very few people actually engage in the true process of transformation and spiritual awakening, because it means completely giving up life as you know it, for an idea that’s largely unknown, obscure, and somewhat frightening. We fear change because we imagine the change is going to be worse instead of better, and we don’t have faith in our ability to actually pull it off. We’re so attached to our material existence that we can’t imagine life without it. Yet, what we often fail to realize is that all of our pain and suffering come from our attachments and addictions to whatever it is that causes us as divine beings to become associated to a mortal existence. Our belief in our mortality forms a tomb as a prison for the soul, inhibiting it from higher forms of expression as the creator of our life story, and who we truly are apart from our material body, possessions, roles and status, and our life circumstances. To shed the ego means to dissolve the “false ego”. To quit forming our identity out of our physical existence, and begin instead identifying and forming a love for the spiritual realm, our higher self, and sensing ourselves out of our divine spiritual soul instead. Whatever we identify with, we bond ourselves to. By identifying with our material existence, we remain connected and attached to being incarnated in a material body, and we render ourselves (through choice) mortal and temporary in nature, with our “sense of self” dying with our body, instead of as immortal souls who live beyond the body in the true realm of the soul, which is purely spiritual, uninhibited, and eternal in nature. Those who remain identified with and only knowing themselves through their body, dies a thousand deaths, and remains a mortal being within the material realm of pain and suffering, a fate that’s willfully self-determined and a life sentence that’s self-imposed and regulated.

What is Thought? The Local and Non-local Mind

      Thought comes as the activity of the mind, not just as the verbal thought of what we call the conscious mind which comes primarily as what we call “brain function”, but also through the other aspects of the mind as feelings, images, and direct experience. Naturally, just as all aspects of the mind work together to form a single operation, all levels of thought work together to form what we could call a full sensory experience of reality. The mind, which exists both locally (located in a body) and non-locally (a part of the greater outer reality) on the material plane, forms both the subconscious and the self-conscious mind which work together to form both the inner and outer reality through which they form the “self” as a coherent being. The subconscious mind, which we also think of as the “body consciousness”, while being located in the body is also connected to the outer reality, and exists outside of time because it’s always present and in the moment, whereas the self-conscious mind as the “thinking mind”, exists primarily within time and is hardly ever actually present, and instead lives out of dream-like illusions as rehashing memories of the past, and projecting ideas of the past into the future as a means of trying to anticipate what’s to come.

The self-conscious mind, which is birthed fully within the body as our brain-consciousness, is abstract in nature and produces what we tend to think of as “thought” as the verbal, talking form that speaks in a learned language that’s abstract and subjective in nature. This form of thought creates our internal dialogue as a form of always talking to ourselves by explaining, describing, and repeatedly replaying the same type of scripts over and over. The subconscious mind, which exists both inside the body and as part of the environment, is intuitive in nature, emotionally driven, and experience oriented and “thinks” in terms of sensory information and as images, metaphors, and analogies that comes as whole ideas that form both inner and outer realities. As the conscious mind speaks to itself in words as internal dialogue, the subconscious mind interprets the words by turning them into corresponding sensory realities as an inner imagining. This inner imagining formed from abstract words creates thought as form, producing “thought-forms” as ideas that form the basis for living outer realities that give us certain types of experience.

As we think we construct whole realities in our mind’s eye, and these imaginary realities become the basis for both verbal thought and outward speech. Whatever we say outwardly to others begins as an inner thought of some form. The inner mind and outer mind both work on each other to form experiences of reality. When thoughts come to us from an outside source, they come as feelings that have whole ideas in them that we then “think about” and construct into a living concept as a possible reality as the means of comprehending them. When thoughts seemingly come from an internal source, they come as a memory of some kind that we replay in our mind’s eye, altering them slightly by adapting them to our current situation as a way of repeating the same experience of the past in the present. As we think, we form an emotional reaction to our own thoughts, and the emotion shapes the nature of the reality we create out of our thoughts. Likewise, we can be triggered by an emotion (from outside), which acts to control our thoughts and determines what we think about as the reality or memory associated to the emotion. Verbal thought and emotion are always connected as correspondences to each other, and one causes the other, or acts to produce and determine the other.

As we think, we do, and as we do we become. We become by way of our thoughts. Our style, type, and class of thinking are how we work on ourselves to shape ourselves. We become by way of our own stories about things. What we tell ourselves about things forms an inner reality as an imagining that’s then “looked through” or superimposed over the outer reality and used to reorganize it to fit or match out thoughts about it. What we think and form into a reality in our mind we believe, because it’s our creation and we form an understanding of things by turning them into a reality. When we turn an idea into a reality, it’s believable because it appears real to us. We present it to ourselves in a way that makes it seem real. Anything that we can imagine, we can make real as an outer experience. We believe it because we perceive it as reality, as being real and tangible, and don’t realize that what we call reality, in the most basic sense of the idea, is an illusion as a fabrication of the mind, and that every individual mind forms its own unique version of the same reality as a perception of it.

We exist and have our being by way of our own thoughts and “style of thinking” which emerges spontaneously as the natural composition of our mental paradigm or vibratory frequency. The structure of our mind as a frequency forms a dynamic series of interlaced patterns that are all of the same nature and together form a congruent and consistent experience of life as a form of story-line we’re always in the process of telling ourselves (notice this word is always plural). We tell ourselves a story about things as a way of making them mean something. It’s through the meaning things have for us that we form our experience of them, and our experiences shape us. We tell ourselves a story about things as a way of making sense of them, that give them meaning, and meaning, a product of the mind, operates simultaneously on three different levels – it means something about others, the way the world is, and about ourselves in relationship with it.

As we create our experience of ourselves within our own story, we create the rest of the world through the relationship we form with ourselves in everything else. We make other people out to be of the same nature as we are through our judgment of them and by perceiving them through our mental filters, emotional states, and criteria, and remake them to be of the same nature as we are by fitting them into our model by how we exist in relationship with them by contrasting, comparing, and relating. We can only know “who we are” by how we contrast and relate to others and the world in general. Because we’re always viewing the world through our own mind and mental paradigm, we only see and comprehend in others and events what can be explained, described, and therefore known through our story about them. We never really see others as they actually are, but rather as we remake them in our own image. We interpret them to be like us (of the same story) and fit into our reality as a cohesive aspect of it.

Thought is the means through which we create subjective realities out of neutral and objective realities as the natural expression and activity of the mind. The mind is a reality generating mechanism. It generates the body that it then inhabits and operates through, and produces the illusion of the outer reality as a reflection of the inner nature, as a means of “experiencing itself” in relationship with itself (same vibration) in everything else. The “self” separates and becomes another that exists outside of an apart from it, then experiences itself through the interaction as both a perception of the other as being the “same as it is”, or being different (complementary), then interacts with itself (its own image) in the other, defining and shaping itself through the experience it brings. Likewise, our perception of reality results as the outer stage or scenario of our story, and is based primarily on the illusion we form “as” our personal reality that’s projected outward and superimposed over (a lens we look through) the abstract reality, rearranging it based on the meaning we give it, conforming it to fit our story about it.

Everything in what we perceive as the outer world is a dream-like illusion produced by our mind as our thoughts about it. Thought forms reality. As we think, we believe, and as we believe, so it is. As we think, we become by way of our thoughts. All reality is in fact subjective in nature, because it’s composed, viewed, and experienced by the mind perceiving it, and therefore adapted, altered, and modified to be of the same nature or basic patterning as a frequency. Nature as the outer world is a projection and reflection of the inner nature of the mind. As we think we create ourselves, others, and the world at large. We form a new interpretation out of a universal theme. Because our thoughts produce living realities, we believe in them and see them as true because they appear real to us. Whatever can be made real is true to the mind creating it.

Truth itself doesn’t exist in the outer reality, or the inner reality, but rather in the Laws governing the activities of the mind that produces both as an interaction with itself on different planes, creating a variation each time it expresses “as” something specific. It’s not the product of the thought that’s real, but the process through which thought is generated and made real as an outer reality. All reality in and of itself is an illusion as a dream produced by the mind. The outer reality is created first as the original creation of the greater, universal mind, then as the group mind of humanity (Earth), and then of the individual mind that’s perceiving it from a certain perspective and identity located within a body. The mind itself is true, not the reality that it produces, which is temporary in nature, and varies in each aspect that together make up the greater whole. We are all living in a reality of our own making, that while it is composed of the same fundamental elements for everyone, it appears in a unique form, with different emphasis, embellishments, and story-line for every individual mind which creates a subjective reality as a form of parallel reality that coexists simultaneously within an infinite number of realities without interfering, canceling out, or altering each other.

Those who share the same type of reality, who are telling the same type of story, who vibrate at the same frequency, attract, enter into a relationship of some form, and co-create a shared reality as a joint-experience. Those of a different reality, who are telling a different type of story that’s not a part of or compatible with ours, are deflected, repulsed, not noticed, or ignored all together. They simply exist in the background. We attract to our complementary opposite in everything else, and together form a whole as playing different parts in the same story as a type of reality. We create and share the same type of reality through an interaction that comingles and congruently integrates feelings, thoughts, and emotions to form a unique variation while still holding true to the basic theme of our story. No matter what type of relationships we form, we’re always telling the same type of story with people who can play a part in our story.

The Law of Polarity – The Relationship between Higher (Spirit) and Lower (Material) Planes

thought

The idea of higher and lower planes are multiple aspects that exist in a unified state and operate as what appears to be a single entity. All unified states exist in a primary state of polarity as what we traditionally call electro-magnetic, masculine-feminine, yin-yang, inner-outer, visible-invisible, upper-lower, and so on. Polar opposites of the same thing that form as extremes that never meet or touch, yet are held together in a unified manner. Electromagnetism, for example, forms a natural ‘spiral’ as two forces that simultaneously attract and repel, never actually touch or meet, yet act together to form equilibrium as a stabilized field that’s in constant motion. The most fundamental nature of matter, is comprised of particles ‘held together’ and revolving around an oppositely charged center by ‘invisible forces’. An atom is as much, if not more invisible as visible. The visible is always structured into patterns and held together in a unified manner by the invisible aspects of the same vibratory frequencies. Matter and spirit are opposites of the same thing, existing at different densities and on different planes or dimensions. Matter is the passive (feminine) aspect of spirit, which is the active force that animates and vibrates matter with qualities that form characteristics, which together, produce a unique personality with natural behaviors. The mind is the invisible consciousness that accompanies the body and gives it “life”. Without the mind, the body would die and disintegrate, no longer held together and animated in an active state.

 

The mind itself, synonymous with the soul, divides and becomes polar when entering into the “lower physical plane”, as what we call the subconscious and self-conscious aspects of the individual mind. The subconscious is what gives life to the body by systematically running all biological processes of the body in an automated fashion, in which the self-conscious is almost entirely unaware of. Our body functions perfectly without any thought process or need to direct and control it on our part. Likewise, the conscious mind lives outside of the body for the most part, and is nearly always busy thinking about stuff that has nothing to do with the body, outside of how it uses the body to create an image of itself by associating and identifying with the body. The conscious mind has the ability to directly influence the subconscious mind, and is constantly doing so just through the nature of its thinking, but seldom does so with any awareness or intention, and instead, we have a tendency to allow the subconscious to run our thoughts and create all of our life experiences out of memories of the past as an automated feature of the subconscious.

spacious mind

The subconscious mind of the body, when in an active state, controls the conscious mind which resumes a passive state, and simply ‘thinks’ in an automated fashion by repeating patterns as memories of some form. Likewise, when the conscious mind is in an active and therefore creative state, the body resumes a passive mode and acts as the vehicle for thought by bringing it into expression through correlating activity and behaviors. Whichever aspect of the self is active, the other one acts as its passive component. They’re never both active at the same time, and in an ideal situation, switch back and forth based on what needs to be utilized at any given moment.

 

The mind as the soul or invisible double and companion to the body, when active and dominant, is creative in nature. The body, when active, rendering the soul passive, lacks creativity in the most fundamental sense, and is simply a receptor for thought, and instead of creating in new and novel ways, acts out of memory as existing patterns or thematic ideas that are repeated producing the same “type of experiences” over and over, altered only by how they’re adapted to unique situations and circumstances. When we reside in body-consciousness as our general frame of reference, we are unconscious in the most basic sense of the word, and “create” out of past memories and conditioned tendencies. While in body-consciousness, we act only to “take in” the thoughts and ideas of others, while accepting them as our own, and whatever we’ve been taught, or by observing what’s being demonstrated in our external environment, all of which act to “program us” (condition) according to the mindset and type of thoughts. We become a conduit for other people’s will, and we’re shaped and determined by outside forces. Because of this we fail to become a unique individual – the creative aspect of your own mind – and instead become “like others”. We fail almost entirely to “think for ourselves” and act instead as a mindless vessel for others.

Afterlife - alien planet - DMT - stargate

If, however, we choose to step into and embrace our ability to self-create by empowering our own mind, we have to learn how to keep the body in a passive state, which is what activates our higher, creative mind. This process is what meditation is built on, and provides us with the process for doing it. In meditation, we start by relaxing the body and withdrawing consciousness from it. In a fully relaxed state, we lose direct awareness of our body, and our bodily activity which primarily result from emotions, anxiety and stress, are no longer prompting and controlling our thoughts, and we enter into a calm inner space, that becomes a receptor for the thoughts and ideas of the higher mind which exists independent of the body. In a passive and receptive state, we’re able to witness our own mind as a kind of neutral and objective knowledge that’s not personal in any way, and does not stem from our own mental paradigm as the regurgitation of past ideas in an attempt to generate new ideas. It comes as brand new knowledge, which, when allowed to enter fully, take hold, and begin unfolding, reveals to us a whole new awareness around commonly held ideas. We clearly ‘see things’ that we were never able to see before. Because we see new ideas from an inner perspective, and use them to ‘look through’ in order to comprehend the outer world or previously held ideas as beliefs, we are transformed by them. Once we become aware, we’re always aware. Once an awakening of some form takes place, we never go back to sleep in regards to it. We see it in terms of how it operates in the most ordinary sense as part of our everyday life, and we begin seeing things in a whole new light.

 

This higher knowledge as brand new ideas come to us through an inward experience that “re-informs” our subconscious mind which accepts it as an actual experience, because of course it is, and it becomes an inherent part of our psychological make-up and serves to transform our mental and emotional paradigm, and how and what we perceive as going on in the outer world. It’s only through a paradigm shift as an inner realization that brings new forms of awareness that our outer life changes accordingly. The mind acts to re-inform the body, not through intellectual theories that are “self-generated” or an extension of learned behavior, but rather through knowledge that’s received through a direct inner experience as a “living reality”. Theory only provides the basis for experimentation to produce a reality as an experience of it. The lower mind is only capable of “taking in” (acting as a vehicle for) information from external sources, and attempting to conceptualize them as an actual reality in order to “prove them”. Yet, all true knowledge comes from internal sources as a reality that’s comprehended through a direct and immediate internal experience of it.

etheric-body-in-Atlanteanr-times

The confusion comes from the inherent paradox and belief that our body is our true self or concrete mind, out of which we seemingly generate “unique thoughts”, when in fact, we’re simply using the thoughts we’ve acted as a receptor for from other people and the conditioning of our formative years and primary education. When in our lower, bodily (concrete) mind, we’re always borrowing and accepting thoughts from other people. The lower mind doesn’t have the “creative faculty”, only the higher mind does that accompanies the lower mind. When in our higher mind, our body acts as a physical conduit, and is still “receiving ideas” from “another source”, which comes, not from the outer external plane, but from an internal, invisible plane. We don’t have to use our mind to formulate them into a conceptualized reality by imagining them. When acquiring knowledge from a higher, non-personal source, it’s given to us (conceived) as a whole reality or idea, and no effort on our part is required. In fact, effort on our part only serves to corrupt and distort it. All we have to do is “witness” it internally (being a passive receptor) as it reveals itself to us. We learn by watching it in our minds eye. Though it’s not tangible in outer sensory terms, it has a heightened sense of “realness” through the inner senses of feeling, emotion, and beauty that are used instead to perceive it. We have an intimate and pronounced experience of it, and because of this, we “know it”. By acting as a neutral receiver for it internally, we become one with it, and know it through ourselves. It inspires a sense of awe, wonder, and mystery, and we feel a deep love for it. The love we feel in response to it anchors and magnifies it, and creates a deep inner longing for more . . . .

Meditation – The Acquisition of Knowledge and Penetrating Deeper Levels of Reality

[custom-facebook-feed]

Learning how to Exercise the Powers of our own Mind

Mind

When we use the term “meditation”, who knows exactly what it means, because like all words and ideas it means different things to different people. Some perceive it as stopping all thought as internal dialogue or calming the “talking mind”, others call it blending into the void (nothingness) and emptying the mind, which is kind of the same idea, others achieve it through chanting or repeating a sound or word as a mantra (which is a basic method of trance induction); and others may be completely confused or unsure of what it means. Yet, all of these ideas are true and untrue at the same time. Meditation, which is a form of trance or self-hypnosis, is primarily a calming or stilling of the internal dialogue (self-conscious mind) as the fluttery,  jumping from one subject to the next, or the type of thought that’s automatic, uncontrolled, and runs on and on about stuff in a repetitive manner like a “broken record”, stuck on replay, and instead forms a calm and passive state of mind and through a deepened state of concentration, enters into a singular mind with the idea or concept being concentrated on. Through this single-mindedness of becoming one with an idea, we penetrate that idea or enter into it as it (resonance), giving it life inside of us by thinking about it in terms of what we already know about it, which initiates and unfolding process, much like a growth process, which continues unfolding beyond the boundaries set by our current perception, where we attain knowledge of it by simply witnessing or observing it as it continues to unfold, revealing it’s secrets to us, allowing us to “attain knowledge” by being in a passive and receptive (trance) state.

It’s only through this passive state of simply focusing on and observing an idea in motion inside of us that we’re not acting to control, that we truly learn through direct experience. Anytime we’re in a controlled state of only thinking about what we already know or believe we know, and controlling the idea to fit our idea about it, we can’t readily perceive anything outside of it. While we’re in control of our thinking, we can only perceive (produce) more of the same type of thinking. When, however, we fixate our mind on an idea, and penetrate it by concentrating on it in a single-minded fashion, stimulating it into motion within us as a kind of growth process of deepening into its internal nature, we “see” it as it actually is, apart from us (not modifying it with our active mind). As we move into it with a neutral and unbiased mind it begins moving inside of us as a living force, and begins revealing its true nature to us. We then attain knowledge of it by simply observing it as it forms and moves within our mind as a living idea.

yoga

Anytime we become fully present and engage in an activity with full awareness as concentration, free of distractions or thoughts that replace and cover over or modify our actual experience, we are in a meditative state. When we practice constant meditation by becoming fully present with what we are doing, and we become one with our experience of the present activity or idea we’re engaged in, we form realization around it that brings a new awareness of it that went unnoticed with a half-minded state of constant distraction and mental preoccupation that prevents us from being in the present. By being present and concentrating our attention on what we’re doing and our experience in doing it, we attain constant realizations that eluded us whenever we weren’t paying attention. Many people as a general rule can spend the better part of their life never present with what they’re doing and how they’re being, but rather caught up in a constant thought process that has nothing to do with what they’re doing. Because of this human tendency to be consumed by a wandering, fluttery, spaced out mind, we can live the better part of our life from an unconscious delusional state. Because of this, we fail to learn and grow from our experiences, and simply run the same type of thoughts over and over, creating our current experiences out of delusions or beliefs of the past, and failing to learn through realization only obtained in the present.

A state of meditation, comes from our ability to control our mind, stay focused in the present, and penetrate ideas born out of our daily practices as concentration on the now. All true knowledge as an inner realization only comes to us through direct experience. It’s our experiences obtain with an open mind that show us the true nature of things. Our mind, through concentrated attention void of verbal thinking, or superimposing a belief over the present experience changing it, and simply being present with it, observing and experiencing it as it is, attains knowledge “of it” through self-awareness. All knowledge comes to us by becoming “one with an idea”, and perceiving it by being it. By being the mode through which it expresses, we perceive it “as us”. We become the channel through which it becomes realized as an inner experience or realization.

image004

This penetrative quality of the mind that learn by entering into, uniting with, and becoming the same as (vibration, sympathetic induction, and coherence), can be easily understood through extended practices of deep concentration on an idea, free from all distractions and the need to “control the idea” with preconceived notions. By thinking about an idea with a singular mind, we resonate with it, enter into it, become the same as it, and learn about it from within it or within us. By “being the same as it” in body, mind, and spirit. By taking on the same quality and consciousness. We perceive it by conceiving of it (allowing it to impregnate us). We understand it from the perspective of being within it or having it within us, by experiencing it through our mind. In this way, all learning as the realization of truth comes as an inner process of concentrated thought which acts as a “receptor”. Our mind has the ability to enter into (sympathize with) ideas, and gain knowledge of them from the inside out. We become one with its consciousness, and understand it by observing its reality from the same mind-set.

So we don’t necessarily meditate to control or stop thinking and blend into a void or nothingness, which is only the initial stage of meditation that frees the mind from random thoughts that distract it, scattering its power to concentrate, but rather as the means for inducing a trance state that removes the conscious mind (talking mind) from its normal state of dominance, rendering it passive and inactive, and making the passive and receptive subconscious (experiential) mind dominant and active instead. Once we calm the sporadic automatic thoughts, creating an empty spaciousness as an open arena, we can introduce an idea into our mind as a kind of seed with hidden potential, and grow it by giving it our full, undivided attention. Through concentration we penetrate it, activate it, become the same as it in mind and body, and gain realization of it by being one with it (within us). We gain “knowledge of it” through the self-realization of being the same as it. Through focused concentration on a single idea for extended periods of time, we know it inside and out, and it becomes a permanent part of us. We incorporate it into our mind (paradigm) as an experience, which becomes memory. Once we form a memory of it as a direct experience of it, it can be recalled and referenced, and exists as an inherent and natural part of us. We only “attain” knowledge, as self-knowledge through exercising the concentrative powers of our mind (will).

By concentrating our attention on an idea, becoming one with it, we become the same as it, vibrate at the same level of consciousness, and readily perceive that same consciousness of the idea in everyone and everything around us. Once we “know and understand” an idea, it’s fully integrated into our paradigm or mental structure, which forms the lens and filtering system that we look through to perceive everything else. Once we know by becoming the same as, forming a memory of it as our soul’s structure, we resonate with that idea, no matter what form it takes on in everything around us. It becomes a natural part of us and helps form our understanding of everything else. Our experiences become memory which inform us by giving us instant interpretations of what appears to be random information (organizes everything into coherent patterns). Once we attain a memory of something, the knowledge in that memory remains apart of us and is instantly recalled and associated as a part of our normal mental processes of perceiving ourselves (the same structures) in everything external to us. Meditation is the method of learning through direct internal experience of the internal nature of the idea itself (soul-to-soul), where we become fixated on, and experience it from within us as an inherent part of us.

The 4 Elements – The Etheric Body and the Nature of Memory

 

While there are many ways to look at what’s referred to as the 4 Elements, which represent the material realm, one of it’s most primary interpretations is as the very substance of what we think of as the material world as the experience produced by the mind that becomes the basis for memory. Memory, which comes from a reality, has the full building blocks or interactive components of an actual reality even when it exists in it potential or unformed state. The information it’s comprised of and the active force that brings it to life, are the basic “seed” necessary to produce a living reality. A seed as a series of encoded information contains strands of DNA that provide the material as a regenerative process and the spatial blueprints for creating a living form.

The 4 Elements as we’ve come to know them represent Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. These seemingly 4 components only signify 2 actual Elements of Fire and Water, which combined produces Air, and Earth represents the whole combination as a physical reality. In its original depiction, Water and Earth were considered one element, representing three Elements of the Triad or Triangle as the symbol of the 3 aspects of the mind that create an internal reality as the combination of Fire and Water, that was then reflected to produce the outward reality, symbolized by the number 4, or the Tetrad. Fire and Water are symbolic of the masculine and feminine polar aspects of Spirit as a unification. Spirit is traditionally represented as Air or breath. All of Life as we know it is comprised of the 2 Elements of “Yin and Yang”, and the 2 correspondences they form as their offspring which is the combination of them to produce material form.4 elementThe 4 Elements also form the Tetragrammaton, as the sacred name of God, commonly spelled “YHVH”, or YOD-HE-VAU-HE, where Yod represents Fire or Will, He represents Air as intellect, Vau represents Water as Feeling, and the second He represents Earth as the manifestation of will. This spelling, where only two letters are different or unique, though similar in structure to each other (Y V), and two are repeats (H H), is significant of the idea that only 2 true Elements exist as the single or unified constitution of the One- Spirit, and the other two are correspondences as the inner and outer reflection. These can also be seen as representing idea, thought, feeling, and action, which are always unified and create an experience of reality, both internally and externally. They are also always comprised to form a memory which either comes as the result of the manifested idea as the end result, or as the basis used for creating the outer experience as a material reality. Memory is both the beginning and the end, the creator, the outer experience as an event, and the one having the experience. We create our present experiences out of the accumulation of our past experiences as memory. Everything we learn, we acquire as a memory either as an imagined concept of an idea that forms it into an inner reality as a memory, or as an actual experience that contained a lesson and came about by experimenting. Notice that experiment and experience are almost the same word.

When we contemplate an idea and begin thinking about it, we form it into an internal conceptualization as an actual experience of the idea as a reality, or we form an internal representation as a metaphor that serves as a symbolic correspondence. Both of these are formed in our mind in much the same way we construct an actual memory, or replay it as a way of reliving it. There’s no actual difference between a memory created in the imagination of an idea, or one created through an actual event, outside of the fact that the actual event had significantly intense feelings and emotions associated with them. The only memories we attain in a detailed manner from our life experiences, are ones that had a significant emotional impact. The emotion is what forms the structure of the memory in terms of how we interpret it to form a story that we tell ourselves about why it happened and what it means.

soul energy
Memories are formed out of a combination of feeling sensations, emotions, and thoughts that produced distinct actions based on them. The memory, which is in reality a personalized interpretation of an outer neutral event, is activated by the emotion associated with it, or the same sensory content, that then activates the behavioral pattern of the memory, setting into motion a whole automatic pattern that repeats the past in the present, creating more of the same type of memories. This is why 5, as the pentagram or Pentad, symbolic of the etheric Element as “mind over matter”, operates by the principle of “regeneration”, further symbolized by the Fibonacci Sequence of reproduction in which the most recent past brought into the present produces the future, and the holographic affect also called fractal patterns, where the mind simply reproduces more patterns that are of the same nature (memory) as it is.

A memory can be thought of as a state of mind or vibration that contains the pattern as a blueprint for producing a reality in a completely unconscious and automatic fashion. How we create our experiences is based on our state of mind or our soul mood. Memories are living thought-forms shaped by the mind out of the Elements that are viewed and replayed – kept alive – in the imagination as the invisible patterns we picture in our mind over top of actual reality as an invisible or translucent story that we use to restructure our current reality to be of the same nature. We use memory to make our current situation mean the same thing as our past situation did.

birth
This reality that we form in our imagination is shaped out of the Elements as the etheric substance, or Astral Light. Just as light in the material world is actually invisible and only illuminates the atmosphere because it’s being both absorbed and reflected by dust and water particles in the air, is used inwardly by the mind of the individual to form an internal reality, even though it has the “feeling” of an actual visible picture, it’s translucent and invisible and can be viewed by superimposing it over or in front of the outer reality as our perceptual lens that we look through that determines what we see (that matches it and is being absorbed) and what we don’t see (what’s not a part of the same idea and is being reflected. Ideas exist in us in exactly the same way actual memories do, and can be used by the mind to form internal realities by picturing, sensationalizing, and thinking about them.

A thought is an active memory. While thoughts seem to be generated by the mind, they’re actually “tuned into and received” out of the invisible space around us, which is actually light intermingling with water and matter. The light of the material world that’s basically invisible in the physical world, comes from a star (our sun), and is therefore called “Astral Light”. Stars are the only living entities that are a true source of light. Everything else gets its material existence as matter, which is also light as photons, in its condensed form, by either absorbing or reflecting certain aspects or rays of light, which appears to us as colors or solid objects. This Astral Light that forms the Etheric body of all living forms, exists in four primary states as a gradient condensation as; electrified plasma (same substance as stars), gas, liquid, and solid. It’s used by the mind as a gas that behaves like a liquid, and can be shaped instantly into form by thinking. The power of the spoken Word (vibration), spoken both in silence to ourselves as thoughts, and outwardly as talking, comes through it’s ability to form images out of the words as the shapes they represent. As our mind thinks about something, it creates a reality out of it. The inner realities become the basis for outer realities of the same nature. As we think, we become. All of our experiences are our sole creation, produced by how we use our mind to perceive, interpret and tell ourselves a story about things. We shape, grow, and develop ourselves by way of our own story-telling and thought-forms.

pentagramThe 5th Element, represented by the Star or Pentad, represents the quintessence as the Ether body produced by how the mind shapes the 4 Elements into imagined and therefore “willed” realities. The Etheric body exists as a form of memory, or etheric substance that’s an (invisible) double or twin to the material body. The masculine (active and invisible) and feminine (passive and visible) aspects inherent in any physical body as the unification of dual yet complementary opposites. The etheric body forms the memory of the body, evolved by the soul through thinking, emoting, and imagining. The soul is the Astral Body, represented by 6, as another “star” image. The Astral Body is similar to the Air Element, and is the correspondence produced by the combination of Spirit as archetypal memory, and the body as individual memory, or Fire and Water. The soul is composed of accumulated memory acquired by combining archetypal memory to produce a variation as personal memory. As it acquires experiences from the body, it transposes them into personalized memory as the essence of the body, and absorbs and synthesizes it, evolving itself through the memory it attains.

The soul is the medium or intermediary between the Mental or Causal body and the physical – etheric body. Between pure spirit as unadulterated memory and its denser aspect as coagulated, specialized, and concentrated light as matter. Spirit exists in pure essence as archetypes and principles that are drawn on by the soul to bring into the body as a modified interpretation to create a specific experience by way of it. When the universal idea comes into physical expression, it has to come as an introduction of thought as suggestion into the individual form that’s a specialized combination of both physical-genetic and soul memory, that modifies it to fit the container of the individual mind necessary in order to conceive it, where it’s turned into a personalized version of the original. A thought or idea is drawn into the individual soul as a seeded reality that the soul-mind grows and shapes into a possible reality by imagining it that provides the subconscious mind of the body with a pattern for creating a reality out of. Likewise, the human soul, which has the power to create through thinking, feeling, and imagining as the will, creates thought forms as imagined realities formed out of intense emotional states that it dwells in an thinks about over and over, developing it with more detail and variations each time it thinks about it, infusing them with the souls life-force, that creates a form of virtual memory that populates the Astral Plane of the Earth, as our atmosphere or instinctual field of the subconscious mind, and acts the same as universal memory and is “picked up on” by other humans in much the same way they attract and acquire archetypal thoughts and ideas.

This ability to create artificial memory as illusions born out of emotional states and fantasizing about them, is what’s referred to as the collective unconscious, or mass consciousness of the group mind. We can literally tune into and draw into our mind the thoughts of others around us, which come to us in the same way as any thought or memory, out of the clear blue, as a feeling we get or something we just start thinking about as a part of our continuous stream of thoughts. Most of the time we have no idea that we’re thinking someone else’s thoughts, because we only resonate – attract and act as a receiver for – those who have similar thoughts or are vibrating at a similar frequency. Because they’re similar to ours, we mistake them for our own, and often allow them to take hold in us by continuing to think about them. This is also the basis for telepathy and clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience, all of which come as transmissions in the Astral Plane.

So simply allow yourself to start recognizing the role memory plays as the very foundation for your thinking and imagining. As you think, observe yourself in terms of what it means to think. What is thought? What activities are you engaging in as you form thoughts as imagined concepts and scenarios? How is this similar or different from how you think about actual memories? Allow yourself to realize that all knowledge learned comes through memory of some form, whether simply imagined, memorized through repetition, imagined or conceptualized, or as an actual experience.

Allow yourself to notice that what you’re thinking about today is very similar if not exactly the same as what you thought about yesterday, last week, or last year. Notice, that all you’re ever really doing, for the most part, is thinking the same type of thoughts born out of the same attitude and temperament consistently throughout our lives, evolving and varying them only slightly through different applications of the same basic ideas. Notice, especially as you get older, that even though your outer circumstances may be quite different today than they were five years ago, that inside, as a person, your nature has remained consistent, and in some cases unchanged. That all we’re ever really doing is growing ourselves by expanding and acquiring new kinds of memory, that evolve us into new ways of thinking, perceiving, and experiencing ourselves and the world around us. That while we believe our thoughts and memories were acquired neutrally or objectively by the events of our life that happened to us beyond our control, and that we’re the “way we are” because of what happened to us along the way, the fact is our life is the way it is because it’s a direct reflection of how we think about it. That what we call our experiences and memories are actually our own creation, and are completely subjective in nature.

While we don’t control the outer events and circumstances of our life, especially as children, how we interpret them internally creating our experience of them, is something we do all by ourselves, to ourselves. It comes completely by how we use the elements to first create an internal experience as feelings, emotion, thoughts, and meaning that form a story about what happened, and why, that forms how we experience and remember it. Long after that events gone, and no longer exists as real, and we’ve grown more mature through years, we still live out of and replay in our mind the same basic group of memories, creating more of the same type of experiences, and living out of the same type of story which becomes a life theme. Stories we told ourselves as children, are still the realities we’re living out of as adults. We shaped our identity as our sense of self out of our own stories about things. We completely live and die by way of our own mind that thinks and feels through our body, producing our experience of reality.

All reality is a product of memory.

The Dual Nature of the Soul – The Material World Belongs to the Soul

We are so in tuned to our physical existence that it’s hard for us to form an idea about ourselves that’s outside or beyond our body. Many fail to recognize the fact that humans are composite beings, and unlike any other life form on Earth, has two souls which give us two distinctly different natures; a lower-animal nature, and a higher-divine nature. This is further complicated by the fact that many attribute the mind to being a product of the body (heart or brain), when in fact, it’s the other way around. The body is a product of the mind, just as all material reality is, and the mind is what provides the intelligence for it’s construction, and activates and regulates all the biological processes that make the body function, and is what holds it all together for a life-span of somewhere around eighty years or so. The mind is not associated to an organ of the body, but exists independent of the body, while permeating and enveloping the body in what we could call an etheric egg-shaped energy field. This energy field that surrounds and gives life to the body, is subtle and electromagnetic in nature, which means it functions according to the same universal laws as the biological world, and is always in the process of exchanging and integrating energy with everything else around it as a form of respiration and metabolic process.

 
The mind is synonymous with the soul. The lower-animal soul is the subconscious and self-conscious mind, or concrete mind, and the higher divine soul is of the higher-mind or superconscious. The soul is not a physical entity, but an energetic “state”. The soul doesn’t experience itself as “having a feeling”, but rather “is” the feeling itself. The soul has “pure experience” without sensory concepts or descriptions. It’s not a mind in a body, but the mind itself that inhabits a body. The mind is not the body experiencing “joy” as a mood or feeling, but is joy itself as a mental state. There’s no physical medium separating it from experience or that it needs in order to experience, but comes as a direct “inner” experience that maintains a connection to the outer world. The mind is our vibratory state as a quality of consciousness that produces our experiences as translated through the physical senses of the body.

vesicaWhatever state of mind we are vibrating at any given moment determines our mood, attitude, perception, and how we form all our experiences. It’s experience that’s direct as an internal “feeling” experience rather than “through” a body or medium, that alters and separates you from the experience itself. You “are the experience” rather than having the experience. Nothing separates or buffers you from the outer world. The mind, which is pure invisible energy as consciousness, blends into everything around it, becoming one with it in order to experience it directly “as it”. The subtle energy of the mind freely moves through and into matter of the physical realm and experiences itself within the material body it inhabits. It experiences itself as the physical body or object from within it, as an “inner” experience.

 
The physical body (matter) is the “middle man or avatar” for the higher human soul. Without the body, the soul is the same as pure experience, not associated to a body and able to travel freely within the outer reality which is contained “within” the soul. The soul itself is a field of consciousness held together as a stress-pattern or torsion field (axion or spin field) as an energetic state or vibratory frequency that gives it individual qualities. The mind is an invisible force in the material realm and in order to create or be in the material world, it has to enter into (resonate with), and bond with a physical body of some form, otherwise it remains unseen and unknowable. The body exists in relationship to the outer world of the senses, and is how the soul experiences itself “as” a physical being, or located within time and space. Because the human soul is not of the same sensory nature as the physical body, it can’t be experienced or perceived through the physical senses, which can’t penetrate deeply enough into the purely conscious realm to experience it as it is, without a sensory interpretation. Because the divine soul is different from the body, we often fail to recognize the true nature of our soul.

 
When the human soul is in the body, the internal experiences are very different than the external ones. While the soul is in the body, we feel the body belongs to us. Yet outside of the body (astral travel), we feel connected to and an inherent part of the greater reality around us, in the sense that there’s no boundary or sense of separation. Outside the body you experience yourself as an innate part of the outer environment, and no longer experience yourself as separate from it, or as an object within it. The inner soul becomes a part of the whole outer world, and experiences being apart of it just as we experience our head or hands as being apart of our body. We blend into and become interwoven with the outer world. The whole surrounding environment belongs to the soul, just as the hands and feet belong to the body. There’s no boundary between the inner and outer world, the effects of the sensory world pass perceptually through your being. You experience it as being the same as it. Everything is experienced from within it. There’s no thought process, judgment, or sensory interpretation of object and subject, but a direct experience of being it. This is the true nature of compassion (the language of the soul), which is taking on the natural internal perception of the soul and having the inner experience of another person or being you’re either observing or contemplating. By developing compassion towards or with other beings, we develop our soul’s perception, and experience the world in a unified manner from the center of our being. We experience another being’s life in the same way that they experience their life.

The surrounding environment of what we perceive as the outer world belongs to the soul and is a projection of the mind necessary in order to experience itself in the world. When we observe something, we direct our attention onto or into it, our mind penetrates and indirectly (subtlety) affects it. We’re always influencing and subtlety affecting everyone and everything around us through our very perception of it, which reformulates its active and passive components in response or interaction with our mental state. Subtle energy is a concentration (quality) expanded over a greater area and therefore diluted (in physical terms) that, while it doesn’t cause an intense or pronounced affect in the physical realm, it does produce a greater affect over and extended period of time in the energetic realm. We could get a good idea of the difference between physical energy and subtle energy by thinking of the physical as an emotional charge or high amplitude or strong dose, that causes a immediate and intense affect that’s short lived and dies down fairly quick, and the subtle energy as more of a mood or low frequency that can last for days, weeks, or even months, and while it seems lighter in its effect, it lasts for a far greater period of time. The soul is capable of experiencing outside of the physical body, because the outer environment, which is all connected to and a part of the subconscious mind or instinctual field, belongs to is an innate part of the soul. The greater mind, universal consciousness, or the collective unconscious is all a part of the planetary mind that governs all life on the planet, and is of the same nature (or kingdom) as the human soul. This field of energy, which is also called the astral plane of light or the morphogenetic field of archetypal memory is the domain of the soul. The soul is astral light as pure consciousness that creates memory out of acquired experiences that evolve it through various states and build up as an accumulative affect.

 
All reality as we know it exists in planes of interwoven dimensions as a hierarchy of consciousness, also referred to as “kingdoms”. Within our physical reality we have the mineral, plant, animal, and human kingdoms. Each level of life, contains the entire lower level within its being, is interdependent on it, and the entirety of the lower plane(s) forms the fundamental basis for the next plane of life to spontaneously and naturally arise out of it. Out of the mineral kingdom comes the plant kingdom, comprised of the very minerals themselves and dependent on them for life. Out of the plant kingdom comes the animal kingdom, whose body is formed out of the mineral and plant kingdom, and out of which the human kingdom emerges as the avatar body for the divine soul of mankind. The human soul takes on an animal body, which provides the vehicle for experiencing the material world “as a body or individual”, in order to consciously evolve it to a higher level of moral intelligence and biological functioning. The entirety of the lower planes forms the foundation necessary for the next plane to grow and develop out of or ny way of it. The higher plane therefore contains within its very nature and substance, the combination of all planes below it, which is necessary for it to emerge as a unique life form through a natural evolutionary growth process. Just as Universal Laws all emerge out of each other as a form of unfolding or growth process, where the Monad contains within it the full potential of the other laws that systematically issue forth from it. This hierarchical structure of one level of reality consisting of multiple dimensions all interwoven into one greater reality is consistent throughout all of life as we know it. The mind which is of “pure experience” within itself, needs the entire outer world in order to set the stage for experiencing itself in the world as a part of the world. It acquires experience by way of the whole reality and the memory of the collective unconscious, which governs the instinctual mind that all of nature share in common.

Memory, which is inherent in the instinctual mind as its basic programming out of which all experience and behaviors are created, propagates and acts to create more of the same type of memories through the experiences formed out of them. The human soul has the creative capacity to willfully create new experiences of itself (in a body) that are not the unconscious reproduction of the memories produced by the lower mind through its formative conditioning, but it can only do so when it quits identifying with the past experiences of the body, and realizes that what it perceives as the outer world is actually a part of or the projection of itself as the means of directing the elements of the natural world in order to create experiences of itself. Through specialized use of our mind, we change our focus, perspective, and perception of reality, and form a different relationship with it that begin telling a different kind of story.

 
Because the soul enters into the body and becomes one with it, it experiences itself as the body, and shapes its identity as a sense of self to be the same as the body. The higher mind enters into relationship with the lower, animal mind, which is prone to instinctual tendencies and easily conditioned to automatic behaviors provoked through strong emotions and desires of some kind, and the human soul mistakes itself for being the same as the lower mind, and is shaped by the lower mind. Because the body creates in an unconscious fashion through compulsive tendencies without recognizing natural law or the consequences of it actions, the soul experiencing itself as the body, becomes the “errors” as a direct experience of itself. It is the reality of consciousness of the error. It’s inside the animal body experiencing a false reality. Because of this, the human soul begins identifying with the body, and forgets its true nature and ability to create by directing the natural forces of the material world. This is the religious idea that we’re all “born into sin”, with sin meaning error. It’s not that we’re born “bad”, but rather rendered unconscious without realizing our creative ability and our true identity as divine in nature.

Because we fail to recognize the creative ability of our mind and live our life out of an unconscious state programmed by childhood memory as our formative conditioning, we fail to create at all in the real sense, often having no power in our own life, and become instead the product of our conditioning. In this sense the body, like the entire material world, belongs to the soul, and not the other way around. The soul has the ability to control and direct the body, but it has to first realize its true identity and power over the material realm. The soul needs to become aware of itself within the body, and begin actively and intentionally using its will to step outside of redundant conditioning and create itself with awareness by purifying the body to be an appropriate vehicle for acquiring certain type of experiences. Only by identifying with our true nature and learning to utilize the power of our mind to enter into and directly influence the elements that make up the material world, does the divine soul serve the purpose of evolving the consciousness of the lower animal-soul, instead of digressing or devolving itself by being controlled by its own lower nature.

 
The human soul is the higher mind, and exists as a “state-of-mind”, which forms a paradigm (pattern) as a vibratory frequency based on accumulated experiences that form its memory. How we use our mind, is our soul power as our ability to self-create and therefore develop the perceptual lens we look through to experience what we call the outer reality or life conditions and circumstances. We can only change our life experiences by changing our mind as our “inner state” or soul mood. By working with our ability to choose how we’re going to be and the will to direct our own behaviors and activities to turn our choices into reality as our experiences, we shift our center of power and begin using our soul to create in life. By changing the qualities that make up our character, we change our attitude and perception. When we begin working with our “being”, and develop ourselves from the inside out, we step into our true power to be self-determined. In order to create in our life, we have to work on changing ourselves so that we’re the channel through which that experience of reality is possible as a natural perception of the outer world. By learning to identify with our true spiritual nature as our mind which is pure consciousness, we begin developing our eternal aspect, which exists independently from the body and transcends the body (continues living) at the death of our physical body. All reality is formed out of our mind as a mental projection, perception and experience of it.
