Learning to Discipline Your Emotions and Consciously Create your Experiences

       One of the most prevalent ways we’re controlled by others and the events of our life are through our emotions. As we’re triggered by the emotions being expressed by another, we take on those same emotions, and react in an automatic and unconscious manner. Anytime we’re reacting, we’re literally unconscious and operating on autopilot. Emotions are the natural force of the lower material plane that acts as the prompting mechanism for instinct. Being of an animal body, we actively share this with the rest of the animal kingdom where we’re directed and influenced to perform certain behaviors through the reception and production of emotional charges. Emotions can have a very intense and pronounced stimulation, which can make them hard to resist, especially when we’re unaware of what’s actually happening at the energetic level.

       Emotions are a form of instinctual force meant to regulate the behavior of unconscious beings (those without the ability to regulate themselves), and aren’t designed to be brought into our thought processes where we form whole realities out of them. These realities formed out of emotions are what is commonly referred to spiritually as “illusions” that ultimately become a primary form of self-deception that’s delusional in nature. This means that the realities we create out of our emotions aren’t real in the most basic sense, and are something we makeup and use in place of neutral and more objective or unemotional reality as the means of creating how we experience things.

      What we refer to as the subconscious mind, which is the same aspect of the mind we share with animals, plants, and all of Nature as the instinctual mind, is emotionally driven and forms automatic behaviors out of various forms of memory that provides the basis for forming habits of various sorts. As humans born into an animal body, we start off life in a primarily unconscious state where our subconscious is active and dominant and our self-conscious, thinking and discriminating mind hasn’t developed yet. We’re literally in a natural hypnotic state where we absorb and process whatever we’re being taught and is being demonstrated by our parents and family, authority figures, and through our formative education.

       The subconscious doesn’t have the ability to reason and think for itself, and is passive in nature, which means it only acts as a “receiver” of ideas and not what acts to generate them. This means it doesn’t have the innate ability to evaluate and judge incoming ideas in order to decide whether they seem valid or not. Due to this inability to “choose” what ideas we take on and actively create a reality out of by imagining them, we readily take in whatever ideas we’re exposed to and actively playing a part in as an experience. Our experiences as children are created exclusively by the will of others through shared emotional states and the dynamics that ensue from them which are accumulated to form our memory base that’s then used in an automatic and repetitive fashion as a form of “reference system” for producing more realities of the same nature.

      As we grow older there’s a dynamic network designed and set into place as a kind of instant referencing system of emotion-memory-behavior, referred to as our formative conditioning. As we receive a strong emotion of some kind being projected at us by another, it enters our body as an electrical charge producing a strong stimulation that’s immediately (unconsciously) associated to a memory created from that same emotional state. We then use this memory as a form of thematic template for interpreting the present to mean the same thing as the past, and react by forming the same type of perception, attitude and behavior. We go into an automated process fueled by an illusion of our own making undertaken without any conscious awareness of what we’re doing and why. This “automated mode” which we act to “create out of” is set in motion through an emotional trigger that literally renders us unconscious and we shape the present to be the same as the past.

      One of the basic processes needed in order to work with emotions in a conscious manner is to gain a practical understanding of what’s really happening when we find ourselves triggered by them, because refraining from reacting by internalizing and repressing them doesn’t work, and only makes us prone to emotional outbursts in other areas that may be indirectly related and inappropriate or extreme for the situation they become expressed in. It’s only through realization of the true nature of emotions and how it is that we create our own experiences that we can act (choose) to dissolve the charge before it’s allowed to enter us and take hold. Once we become aware of what’s happening we can work with emotions as natural forces that we deflect altogether by not allowing them enter our mind-energy field, and instead act to mirror them back to the sender, neutralizing them as a result.

Two Ways we Experience Emotion

       Emotion is basically experienced and produced in two fundamental ways: we either act as a passive receptor for them from an external source; or we generate them internally in response to our own thinking and imagining. Emotion is freely transmitted through the atmosphere (astral plane) through a form of telepathy, where they’re received unconsciously (automatically) by anyone in near proximity of us. Because the subconscious is “ran” by emotions and produces illusions of reality out of them as our perceptions, anytime someone around us is expressing emotions outwardly, meaning they’re projecting them, when we’re unaware of our ability to direct and control them, we act to naturally absorb them without resistance. As we absorb them they activate and bring alive in us the same emotion, forming a shared state that we then act together to form a joint reality out of. As we cooperate in acting out the delusion inherent in the shared emotional state by becoming “like” them, we simultaneously create ourselves through the experience we create. When this happens, we truly become a product of our conditioning and create our life out of a constant form of reaction, both to others and to unknown parts of ourselves.

      When we generate emotions within, they come as a natural response to whatever we’re thinking about and playing out in our imagination. The more detailed the imagining the more intense the emotion invoked by it. Most of our thoughts run through our mind in a habitual and repetitive fashion based on memory of some kind, and act to keep us tuned to the same emotional states of our conditioning. Because of the natural relationship between thought and emotion, one always acts to determine the other. Our thoughts, what we focus on, and our perception as the interpretation of the activities and events of our life that form how we create our experiences are all “habits” that operate in a repetitive and automatic fashion.

The Relationship between Thought and Emotion

       The relationship between thought and emotion is self-evident through simple self-observation. These two are always married to each other and together form an equivalent perception of reality. The ability to produce false realities out of emotional thoughts is a capacity of the higher, human mind that sets us apart from the animal kingdom as our ability to willfully create. Unlike the animal kingdom, we have the ability to “create ourselves” through our ability to create our perceptions as our “experience of ourselves”. Whichever one of these initiates the process as a “cause”, produces the other one automatically as an equivalent “effect”. This is easy to recognize through simple forms of self-reflection.

       When we unconsciously absorb and take in emotions without resistance, and allow emotional charges to take hold “in us”, they act to instantly alter our state and determines what memory we associate it with that was of the same emotional state and nature. Once we reference and pull it up in our imagination, it forms our “perceptual lens” as a form of transparent, thematic template for using to interpret the current event to mean the same thing as the past event. Long after the emotional charge has subsided, it continues to influence our thoughts and what stories as scenarios we run through our mind over and over. When this happens we’re literally being controlled and therefore determined by whatever it is we’re reacting to. They literally continue to run our mind as imagined thoughts, which act as a form of mental program for our subconscious. As we program our own subconscious with imaginary thoughts, it acts to produce that same type of reality over and over as a kind of life theme.  

      In a likewise manner, whatever we think about in a deliberate and controlled (willful) manner, acts to produce our emotional state as complementary to our thoughts, and together set our vibration that tunes us to the reality of our thoughts. When we think about positive, inspiring, and uplifting ideas, we act to generate corresponding emotions. Thought shapes ideas into material forms in our mind, which act as a magnet (vessel) for equivalent emotions as the natural forces that blend with them through a form of holy matrimony, and together produce corresponding realities as their offspring. By intentionally directing our own thoughts we simultaneously produce our own emotional states and tune ourselves to the outer reality that provides us with the same type of experience.

How we Create our Experience

       Anytime we’re in a predominantly unconscious state, we create the perception that our experiences are somehow independent of us and “caused” by outside forces of some kind. We feel as if we have no actual control over how we experience something, because as children living out of our subconscious, our experiences came in what seemed like an automatic fashion based on what emotions we were experiencing and what behavior was being demonstrated around us that we were an active part of. As we got older and our self-conscious mind began developing (frontal cortex), we started telling ourselves a story about things as a way of trying to make sense of them, and these imaginary stories acted to program our subconscious with the reality of the story as a kind of metaphorical theme. We’re always in the process of telling ourselves a story about things as a means of interpreting events to give them meaning. Whatever we make something mean by the story we tell ourselves about it, simultaneously means the same thing about us.

       We don’t have a direct awareness of the fact that we’re actually the one creating our own experiences because it happens as a natural process produced by our unconscious mind. However, when we really stop to examine it, we can come to realize how we do it by how we think about things, which is necessary in order to begin working with it in a fully aware and intentional manner. The whole basis for any form of self-mastery is self-awareness and the realization attained by bringing what’s operating just below the level of awareness into the light, and as a result, becoming aware of the creative ability of our own mind.

      This awareness comes through self-examination of what is normally automated processes and starts by realizing that you are the only one actually using your mind to create your own experiences. No one is ever doing anything “to you” in terms of how you experience something, they’re simply stimulating you emotionally then giving you a suggestion that causes you to create an inner experience that’s correlated to the outer event. The inner and outer are always in an intimate relationship with each other where one “enters into” and acts to “propagate” the other, forming a joint reality. As long as we remain unaware of this process, we simply act as a passive receptor and allow ourselves to be impregnated with the will of others where we then act to systematically birth and give life to that same type of reality as our creation.

Self-Observation and Awareness

       In order to gain awareness and realization around your own internal processes, create a calm, empty mind that’s void of all attachments formed out of the need to somehow make others responsible for how you feel, or to justify your right to feel and act the way you do. Then recall a situation where you were triggered by someone else’s attitude and actions around or towards you that caused you to become upset, and create a slow-motion type of spaciousness that turns it into a step-by-step process. Allow yourself to notice that the only “cause” involved was in how they were stimulating you internally. As you are stimulated, notice how it instantly alters your state and how you immediately associate it to another experience of a similar nature. You then use this past experience as the means to form the same type of experience again. Then notice what it is you begin telling yourself about it as your thoughts. Notice what story it prompts. Allow yourself to notice that you let the stimulus enter you (your mind and body) and take hold without consciously evaluating or resisting it, and begin using your mind in an unconscious manner to create the experience of “being” upset. Notice that it was your own thoughts that produced the state of being upset. You allowed the outer stimulus to enter you, take hold, and produce your perception. You are in fact the one that’s creating your own experience of being upset by it. You could just as easily choose to let it go and not be upset.

       Now, in a similar fashion, imagine that same situation and activity, except this time imagine your mind as a protective bubble or impenetrable sphere of energy that surrounds and envelops you, where the emotional force being projected is stopped and is reflected instead on the surface of the transparent sphere, outside of your body, where you can “see” the nature of the emotional charge and the idea associated with it from a detached perspective. Where you can consciously decide whether or not you want to let it in and allow it to take hold and become expressed within you. Instead of unconsciously absorbing it, decide to reject it, and act instead to reflect it back while remaining unaffected by it. Allow yourself to realize that just the awareness itself creates the realization of a choice. When we wake-up from an unconscious state of automated processes we begin realizing that in every moment we’re actually making a decision as to what we let in and what we keep out of our own mental sphere. It’s only the emotional charge associated with it that makes this difficult to do. As we begin making conscious decisions as to what we allow to stimulate us, and therefore use as the means of creating our experiences, and what we act to neutralize instead, we begin realizing the true power we have in creating our own experiences.

      Whenever we absorb an emotional stimulus coupled with an idea that acts as a suggestion, and act on ourselves to create an internal experience out of it, we not only create a joint-reality as an experience with whatever is impregnating us, but we simultaneously create a “sense of ourselves” through and as the experience by how we associate and identify with it. As long as we remain unconscious of our ability to create our own experiences and create them based on how we’re being stimulated at any given moment, we create ourselves by the will of others as a product of the group mind. We allow others to tell us who we are, and give us our feelings and thoughts, and as a result, willfully shape us to be like them.

The Nature of Emotional Pain and Suffering

       As long as we remain in a primarily unconscious state, we form the illusion that others are causing our pain, and that we suffer due to our life conditions and circumstances. Yet all pain and suffering in the most basic sense is created by how we choose to experience things, not by the people and things themselves. No one “makes us” sad or unhappy, we’re the one that creates the experience of being sad or unhappy in relationship with everything else. No one hurts us emotionally; we act on ourselves to create the illusion of being hurt by what we tell ourselves about things that gives them meaning, causing us to feel hurt by them. We are in fact the ones acting on ourselves to inflict our own pain and suffering by how we use our own mind to create how we perceive and experience reality.

       The same situation, approached with a different attitude and belief system, will produce very different types of experience. What causes pain and suffering for one person will cause a feeling of detachment or contentment for another. A situation that’s upsetting for one goes completely unnoticed by another. Anytime we’re experiencing emotional pain that’s causing us to suffer in some way, it’s providing us with a mirror into our own unconscious mind and habitual tendencies, showing us how it is that we “structure our thoughts” in order to produce our experience of reality.

      The most basic problem we have in creating is that we form habitual ways of thinking and perceiving based on our conditioning. The story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about things is formed out of our belief-system and values. As we create a reality around things, we sense ourselves by way of that reality and build our identity around it, coming to love and depend on it as a result. We become who we are by way of our own stories about things, and when challenged, will argue to defend them. In order to create new types of experiences we have to literally become a different type of person. If we give up our story as a way of thinking and structuring our experience, we don’t know who we are or how to be, which can cause a deep feeling of insecurity and fear of the unknown.

Embracing our Power and Intentionally Creating Ourselves

       Another process of emotional discipline and self-realization that we can employ is to refrain from any form of emotional reaction, while turning our attention inward instead and self-reflecting. Resisting the reaction, which can come instantly, is the hardest part, and looking inward to observe our own process requires the ability to direct your own attention while being totally honest with yourself. It requires you to let go of your attachment to your need to justify your “right” to react, and simply observe what happens inside of you as a means of recognizing what’s operating in you that you’re normally unaware of in the most basic sense.

       As you refrain from reacting and turn your attention inward, allow yourself to notice what comes up for you in association with the emotional trigger. What memory rises up and runs through your mind in association with it, and how do you feel because of that memory? What story as your thoughts begins running through your imagination as a replay of that memory?  Gain any form of self-awareness you can by reflecting solely on your own part in that memory instead of focusing on the other people or circumstances involved. Again refrain from any form of story that you start telling yourself as a means of justifying your right to feel that way. Simply observe it from a detached perspective as if you were another person watching it. This process will show you what your psychological wounds are that you’re not ordinarily aware of.  

       Because most of the experiences that made up our formative conditioning were produced through emotional states while we lacked the ability to reason and think about them rationally as a child, when we revisit them as an adult with a fully developed conscious mind, we can see them in a different light, which allows us to experience them differently. The beauty of mental and emotional healing is that it’s the realization and awareness alone that dissolves the complex, allowing us to transform how we experience the same event. The transformation takes place by simply shedding light on what was previously obscure and vague, produced mostly from an emotional reaction while in an unconscious state.

       Once we become aware of what we were previously unaware of, it no longer happens in an unconscious and automatic way, and we form a new awareness around it instead. Through awareness obtained while in a calm and detached state, we realize that we have a choice as to the meaning we give things and how we create our experience as a result. All conscious decisions are based on one primary question we’re always asking ourselves as the means of creating, and that is “who am I”? Who am I going to be right now in relationship with this person, situation, or event? How am I going to use this situation or event to create an experience that’s empowering? And from a calm and fully aware state, we make that decision and begin creating ourselves with full awareness of who we’re becoming.

The Subconscious Mind as the Vehicle for the Soul and the Secret to the Manifestation of Cosmic Will

The aspect of the mind known as the subconscious mind is also what we can think of as our “body consciousness” and is symbolized in Esoteric Sciences by the Moon which acts as a “ship of the sky” that serves as the means for transportation and communication. The subconscious mind is of the astral plane and is “magnetic” in nature, which means it acts as a passive receiver for electric, willful transmission of information as archetypes; just as the moon has no light of its own, and merely acts to reflect the light of the sun, becoming a source of light in the dark. Light itself is clear and dark until it’s absorbed and reflects off of dust particles or matter of some form, which produces the illumination that we call light where we can see material forms based on their ability to simultaneously absorb and act as a mirror for light (forming holograms). The subconscious acts in much the same way and doesn’t generate or produce visual images and thoughts of its own, but merely acts to absorb and reflect them in the faculty of the imagination as a form of memory or as an idea that comes to it in complete form as a “field of information” with a ready-made pattern and set of instructions for producing a similar pattern as both an inner and outer reality of the same nature.

The subconscious mind is a dual aspect of the higher, human soul and is what forms the personality out of memories that are carried from one incarnation to another. Because it’s passive and receptive in nature, and takes in consciousness and information from everything around it without the ability to judge or discriminate (it doesn’t select or choose), it assimilates and is modified by whatever it comes into contact and communication with as an exchange of information being transmitted between two things. The subconscious is considered the feminine principle and “uniting intelligence” that’s connected to all other subconscious minds and personalities throughout the natural world, regardless of distance, as a natural form of telepathy we think of as “instinct”. It’s the agency of telepathy that exists not only between all living beings of the material plane, but also between higher and lower planes as “intuition”. It acts as a blind receiver of the masculine aspect of “will” as thought and ideas which are reflected in the imagination of the subconscious which acts like a womb that grows and develops the idea into a possible reality by how it applies and adapts it to the immediate environment and incorporates it into a field of information as memory, allowing it to connect to that same idea in everything else, forming a perception of it, and automatically producing the behaviors and activities that produce it in material form as an experience.

The subconscious carries the self-conscious mind within it in its potential state as a form of gestation, and births the self-conscious aspect of the same mind at puberty, symbolized esoterically by the Madonna (Mother) and Male child, which is the stage of development when we first begin to be able to think for ourselves and make our own decisions about what to do and who we become. Birth of the self-conscious mind marks the stage where we consciously begin creating ourselves as an individual. This is the aspect of the mind associated with “brain consciousness and thinking as internal dialogue”, that’s born exclusively within the body and forms our ego as the full identification with or as our body. This is the aspect of the mind that discriminates and makes decisions and gives us the ability to take over our own creation by using our thoughts to direct and inform our subconscious mind. All thoughts act as a form of suggestion that seed the subconscious with ideas for turning into experiences through our outer reality. The self-conscious mind is primarily based on outer awareness of the material world and forms our identity by how it senses itself in relationship with it. It first acts to give the inner, subconscious mind the suggestion for what to create outwardly, then witnesses its own creation in the outer world and fashions itself by identifying with the experience it brings.

        The subconscious is under the control of the self-conscious will as directed thought (of self or others) and is obedient and subject to being directed and commanded by the active, masculine aspect of the mind. The subconscious is the aspect of the mind we share with the animal kingdom and all of Nature, and is the agency through which we are both controlled and led in an obedient and mindless way by others, and are able to control and direct ourselves as the primary form of self-creation. The subconscious is subordinate to the Higher-Self and self-conscious and directly controlled and in-formed by suggestions that originate as the mental activities of both the Higher-Self the self-conscious aspects of the mind. It will take in the suggestions from any source outside the self as well and manifest the reality inherent in those suggestions. It acts as the receptive and regenerative aspect of the Life Power. The self-conscious mind, which also has the ability to analyze, evaluate, and discriminate, serves as the “gate keeper” to the subconscious and can actively decide what to let in and take hold, and what to reject and keep out as the means of “protecting” itself and only allowing or intentionally providing what it wants to become a part of its reality.

The subconscious as the feminine principle is the “root substance” as the invisible matrix and substratum beneath all objective planes of existence that acts to organize and compose and animate all material reality. It’s the connective medium between us and everything else. It’s the medium of instinct and intuition that operates within the Astral Plane of the Elements as a unified field of coherent information, and is also the means by which the Higher Mind controls the Elements as the means of creating, orchestrating, and animating material reality. Just as the subconscious is the telepathic and regenerative medium for the self-conscious will and the will of others, it’s also the medium through which the Higher-Will communicates and provides direction and instruction as a form of what we call “guidance” as well as objectively administering karma (past memory formed out of our deeds) as universal justice, providing us with the experiences on the receiving end of past deeds allowing us to realize and make new choices, and rectify and correct them by responding in a new way.

Communication comes to us from our Higher-Self or Soul through intuition, sudden insights, as thoughts reflected in our imagination, day dreams, and night time dreams, because the active will needs a passive receiver to “conceive of ideas” and move them from a purely latent potential state to and active state. These ideas, once conceived by the subconscious are reflected in our mind’s eye, allowing the self-conscious to witness them and they become a natural part of our outer experience through a form of synchronicity and free flowing chain of association that’s reorganized intuitively. Ideas of a higher nature come as archetypes which are universal and metaphorical in nature, and simply provide a symbolic prototype as a form of thematic template for producing as a personal creation. Once conceived by the subconscious and reflected in the mind for the self-conscious to see as a mental impression or internal voice, it evaluates it and decides whether it wants to use it to create. If the self-conscious likes it, it chooses to continue thinking about it, and as it thinks about it, it adapts and customizes it into a new variation that can be easily created as part of its outer reality. Once developed into a new variation by concentrating on it and defining it, it becomes a form of virtual memory as a seed or pattern for reproducing by the subconscious mind.

       Though the subconscious mind is the creative mind of the material plane, it only creates based on memory, which it simply repeats as a metaphor or theme and duplicates, transcribes, and copies in a repetitive fashion over and over until it’s given a new memory as a pattern for creating. It creates reality as an experience out of whatever suggestion it’s given by first imagining it, then connecting to the elements of the same nature all around it, producing the means for experiencing it. It creates lies and illusions in exactly the same fashion as it creates truth because it doesn’t know the difference. It relies on the self-conscious mind to filter the suggestions through reasoning, discrimination, and discernment. It doesn’t have the ability to perceive errors or formulate the necessary action to correct itself of errors in perceiving (sin). It simply takes in the mistaken results of faulty, superficial self-conscious observations and repeats and elaborates on them. While it lacks the ability to critically analyze suggestion, it’s also the channel for telepathic communication and acts to receive and metabolize suggestions from any active source when left unguarded by its own self-conscious aspect.

The subconscious mind only creates reality out of memory and forms habitual patterns and tendencies that are rooted in resistance to change and inertia, and only acts to maintain the status quo and repeat the same ideas of the past in the present. It operates out of the tendencies established in our formative conditioning, and simply repeats the same type of experiences over and over in different situations and circumstances. It operates naturally to resist the suggestions of change given to it by the self-conscious mind as its opposing, yet complementary opposite. It operates to create through the association of ideas and memories of a similar nature. If the suggestion given is in to sharp a contrast with its ecology of interwoven memories, it doesn’t know how to adapt it properly and can’t intuitively connect to it in everything else. For this reason, suggestion needs to be given as a gradual process undertaken in stages as a form of intuitive growth and development. Each aspect of the same mind is of itself non-functional in terms of creating, and they only become functional when operating in a unified manner as a whole.

The subconscious and self-conscious minds tend to speak different languages, which makes communication between them even more difficult. While the self-conscious mind is non-emotional, logical, time-oriented, and abstract in nature, the subconscious is emotional, intuitive, metaphorical, always present, and experiential in nature. In order for the self-conscious to give a proper, easily translated suggestion to the subconscious, it must be delivered in much the same way as a memory is formed as a sensory experience that’s emotional in nature and forms meaning as the basis for the reality created from it. Whatever we want the subconscious to produce, we have to imagine it as if we’re experiencing it, endow it with sensory intensity in terms of defining it through what we’re seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, smelling, and what we’re telling ourselves about it that gives it meaning and forms the basis for the story we tell ourselves as the means of “experiencing it”. By making it intense in sensory terms we form a strong emotional response to it, and the emotions associated and related to it become what drives all our automatic behaviors and serves to produce it.

       The subconscious is intuitive which means it sees any idea as a metaphor or analogy that’s a form of theme or generalized idea, much like an archetype, and connects to whatever is of a similar nature in everything around it and produces a similar type of experience using whatever elements are available to it in the immediate environment. So the experience created won’t be exactly as we imagined it, but it’ll hold true to the same type of idea as a form of theme. This is why we often don’t recognize our own creations, is because they’re formed as analogies and correspondences to the ideas we formed in a specific way by how we imagined them. So all suggestion, in order to be effective needs to be created and planted in the subconscious as a form of virtual memory of an actual (imagined) experience. We recognize the fruition of our suggestion intuitively as a similar type of experience that holds true to the same type of idea as a kind of theme, though the elements used to orchestrate it may be of a very different nature than we imagined.

The subconscious also houses all memory of the soul that is latent and undeveloped powers in their virgin state that haven’t been stimulated into activity. Only a portion of our soul’s memory is activated and brought into expression as our development through our initial conditioning, while the larger portion of it usually remains dormant and underutilized. In this sense the subconscious is only “potentially reproductive” and has to be given a seed of an idea as a pattern or dynamic, which serves to activate the latent powers of our inner nature that are of a similar nature in response to it. This works in much the same way the male provides the seed as one strand of DNA or group of information as potential qualities and characteristics and the female then matches it with another strand as a form of natural selection of complimentary qualities that together form a new whole of a unique, yet similar nature. The outer acts to stimulate the complementary aspects inwardly, bringing them out in an active state where they’re developed through expression as an interactive dynamic of some sort.

Memory is produced as accumulated experience through the dynamic marriage of the subconscious and self-conscious mind as “that which was, that which is, and that which will be” as a continuation or evolutionary flow produced by whatever we couple and combine with. This interaction between the masculine and feminine, between the self-conscious and subconscious produces a “stream of consciousness” as automatic internal dialogue and habitual thoughts replaying memories over and over. While the self-conscious has the ability to seed and impregnate the subconscious with new ideas for creating, what usually ends up happening is the subconscious drives thoughts in a repetitive manner by replaying memories over and over in our mind in a habitual manner.

       It’s easy to realize through self-observation of our own thoughts that we tend to think the same type of thoughts over and over, and what we’re thinking about today is the same things we thought about yesterday, last week, and last month. Through memory that’s replayed repeatedly through internal dialogue, we’re actually using the creative power of our self-conscious mind to program and direct our subconscious mind with the same ideas of the past as memories and simply create more and more of the same type of experiences, usually without ever realizing that’s what we’re doing and why. In order to embrace and begin utilizing our true ability to create, we have to learn how to still our constant random thoughts and prevent the emotional states they create and keep us locked into, and learn how to be fully present instead and think in terms of what we do want to create, and begin artistically designing the suggestions as imagined experiences that will provide new direction for our subconscious to begin creating.

In the symbolic idea of the “Book of Life”, which is the Astral or Akashic Field of the imagination, all experiences as deeds and actions, whether actually performed or just thought about intensely are “recorded” or impressed upon the soul and subconscious as its constitution, which is comprised of memory. The subconscious incarnates into a material body with the soul memory of all past events, of the race, the planet, and of humanity, all of which share the same subconscious mind, much like smaller fields that are nested within and interwoven with greater fields. The cosmic subconscious record of the entire planet are contained in what we call the “collective unconscious” of Nature and humanity, and acts as a natural form of instinct and intuition as interwoven memories that are an integral part of the same overall reality as a larger ongoing story and interactive dynamic.

The soul uses universal memory as archetypes for self-expression that provides the means for producing personal memory that becomes a permanent part of our soul’s psychological make-up. We create memory as the personal expression of universal archetypes that shapes us as an archetype ourselves. As humans with creative ability, we use various combinations of qualities and characteristics to shape ourselves as a unique, composite nature. The gods create man “in their image and with their likeness” as archetypal forces and powers that we “draw into ourselves” and use as the means of self-creating by becoming “like them” in personality, identity, and behaviors. We acquire the same qualities and characteristics of whatever we “become one with” in mind and body. All of humanity draws off of the same field of archetypal powers as the means of self-creating. So in this sense we’re all of the same universal mind and nature, just in different combinations and potencies.

       The subconscious works through intuition as a dynamic system of correspondences and is how things are connected and interrelated as a higher-form of instinct that’s always in-tune to the inner nature of things and how they relate to the outer nature of the whole. We perceive things intuitively through their natural connection and relationship to each other and as a congruent part of a larger reality or dynamic pattern. Intuitively we can perceive and recognize the same principle or idea playing out through various material forms and ecological systems as unique expressions and variations of the same nature and idea. The instinctual-intuitive mind exists as an inherent part of its environment, and is always present within that environment, unlike the self-conscious mind which exists “in time” and is usually thinking about the past or future and hardly ever present in the moment.

The two minds work together to create reality as both an inner and outer experience as a flow of concentration that’s immediate and “becomes one” with whatever idea it’s concentrating on and forming an internal representation of. Any idea that we concentrate on for an extended period of time literally becomes a part of us as a natural “thought process” or conceptual reality. As we “take in” and absorb an idea, allowing it to take hold and form into a detailed reality by thinking about it, is integrated into our mental paradigm and becomes a part of our perceptual lens and filtering system that we look through as a means of seeing the same idea as an inherent part of our outer environment. Once we form it into an internal representation of a possible reality, making it real and therefore believable, it acts just like an actual life event and memory and becomes a part of us and our ability to perceive and experience that same idea as it’s playing out all around us.

The inner and the outer, the feminine and the masculine, are dynamic aspects of the same thing, and one can’t be fully understood without the other. They act together to produce a “functioning third” aspect as their offspring. Just as the right and left hemispheres of the brain form a corresponding operation to produce a cohesive reality with contrasting aspects. The masculine is the concrete and analytical aspect, and the feminine the fluid and experiential aspect that together produce a corresponding inner and outer reality that’s used to create the memory that becomes a part of the soul’s constitution as a fundamental form of self-creation.

       What we refer to as a “genius”, use this method of single minded focus as entering into the “flow of consciousness” as deep states of concentration on an idea that allows access to the whole idea as a greater reality or corresponding idea, where intuitive insights spontaneously form. By tuning into an idea, we calibrate our mental field to the vibration of the idea as a kind of metaphor that begins resonating with that same idea as a vibration in everything else, forming sympathy with it. Through resonance, we “enter into” and become a part of that idea as a greater whole and can perceive its inner nature which appears to unfold within us, just as a memory does, revealing itself to us in its fullness. Through this process as entering into a stream of consciousness as a kind of magnetic current, we acquire knowledge intuitively as coming from an inner source as a passive vision that we simply “observe” with the self-aware mind by witnessing it. Whatever idea we “become one with” in mind and spirit, we synthesize and metabolize as a permanent part of our normal thought-processes.

The same laws of the human mind and soul are also operating in a complementary fashion on higher levels of which we’re an emanation, projection, or offspring of. Just as memory exists fluently on the material plane of instinct, it exists on the cosmic planes as archetypes, and we access both through the same method of intuition that concentrates by directing our full attention into an idea and in doing so accesses all information associated with it. We act as the vehicle for life as organized form and are able, by knowing how to use our mind to create, to evolve to higher states of organized form as a more complex and dynamic form of consciousness.

We impose limitation on an idea by confining it to a physical form located in time and space, because it’s necessary in order to self-express and create ourselves by way of being the vehicle for that idea. While involvement in a form is only temporarily binding and restricting for the Life-Force Power, being permanently incarcerated in form is extinction of the human soul and spirit. We’re always both growing and evolving ourselves to higher forms of consciousness by using our divine nature (higher mind) to self-create in an intentional manner, or degrading and devolving ourselves by creating out of the memories of our subconscious, emotional and animal-like nature.

Form disciplines force with a merciless severity (represented by the sphere of Mercy and Severity on the Tree of Life) by binding a free-moving force into a fixed idea, which represents death to the force. Incarnation of the soul and spirit into a body sets death into motion as the inevitable conclusion. Life in the body is death to the soul that gives it life, and death of the body is the birth of the soul that returns it to its natural state of liberation. The Higher-Soul acts within the etheric body of the lower soul to self-create through a constant state of evolving and “becoming” through self-perpetuated changes. The “self” shouldn’t be translated as “I am”, but rather as “I am becoming”, because it’s in a constant state of change as a continuous growth process through a basic state of self-expression. The soul becomes organized in form then constantly undergoes the process or re-organizing itself into new patterns by absorbing and taking on archetypal ideas that develop it by acquiring new qualities and characteristics. The soul and body are always transforming through constant life and death processes of regeneration. This process is carried out simultaneously on multiple planes and scales of existence.

The Nature of Projection, Judgment, and Emotional Reactions

The idea that whatever we see in others and have a strong reaction to is something that we also have in us, can be difficult to understand because of course we don’t see ourselves as being anything like them and may even despise them for being that way. We’re not relating to them, agreeing with them, and don’t have any memory whatsoever of being that way ourselves. Many of the behaviors we react to and judge harshly are the same type of dynamics we grew up with or were subject to at various points in our life, and we actually fashioned ourselves by way of them to be the opposite. We put forth a conscious effort to make sure we were nothing like them and made sure we never behaved that way. So to contemplate the idea that we share the same traits can be confusing in the most basic sense and something that we refute through a form of “knowing ourselves”. Yet this idea comes from the fact that we actually have both a conscious and unconscious “self”, both of which are being projected all the time to make up our perception of others and our environment, and through an understanding of how we are always acting “on ourselves” to “create ourselves”. Our soul is comprised of both a conscious and unconscious mind, and we are always acting to create ourselves through both aspects of our mind, though we are only fully aware of the conscious aspects which are the ones that we willing choose, give expression to and use to form experiences of ourselves. As we create experiences of ourselves, we accumulate memories of “being that way”, and we begin building an image of ourselves out of only the aspects we’re aware of. This conscious self-image, referred to as the “ego”, or more accurately the “false ego”, is the image that we use as the means of sensing ourselves as a certain type of person based on what we know and accept about ourselves and what attributes, qualities, and traits we accept and freely express “as” our personality and basic ways of being. This idea we create about ourselves is a “false” idea because it’s based only partial information and aspects of ourselves and doesn’t incorporate aspects that we have while refusing to express them. There are two basic ways that we are always in the process of creating ourselves. We are either creating ourselves to be “like” others, or the “opposite” of others. As we encounter and experience and individual, activity, or idea, we enter into relationship with it and compare, contrast, and relate to it as the means of sensing ourselves by way of it. Energetically, we’re constantly being influenced and stimulated by others and our environment. Whatever qualities are being outwardly expressed in any situation, stimulate those same qualities “in us”, awakening and calling them forth into an active state. All energy has both dominant and passive aspects as inherent parts of it. As we’re being stimulated by something or someone, we realize it, sense ourselves through and “as” that quality of being, and we judge and evaluate it accordingly. If our judgment is favorable, and expressing it “matches” or is congruent with our idea about ourselves, we embrace it, allow it and freely express it, shaping ourselves by way of it to be “like it”. If however our judgment is harsh and negative, and doesn’t comply with what we accustomed to expressing, then we refuse to express it, deny to ourselves that we “have it” (the feeling, tendency, or behavior), and we repress it instead. As we deny feelings that are an active part of our psychological makeup, because we deem them bad or wrong somehow, they remain active in us and we continue projecting them outwardly, just as we do our conscious self-aware aspects, and they become an inherent part of others and our environment.

       As a quality and feeling is activated in us by some kind of stimulus, brought forth into our awareness where we “sense ourselves” as being like that and we judge it to be bad or wrong somehow, and as a result can’t find an appropriate means to express it because the situation that’s acting to stimulate it is also being judged as inappropriate, and so we refuse to, we simultaneously choose how to be instead and in what way we’re going to express ourselves in contrast to it. We develop ourselves to somehow be the opposite of it by what we actively choose instead. This “division of the self”, produced by a form of judgment births contrasting aspects of ourselves as our “shadow” or “hidden aspects” and our “ego” as our accepted and freely expressed aspects. The ego and the shadow are adversaries and mortal enemies, because the dissolution of the shadow through self-awareness and active expression means the “death of the ego” in terms of transformation. As we “judge” ourselves based on active qualities in us, which are what cause us to refuse and deny them, we then project those same qualities onto others, and as we “see those qualities” in them, we judge them just as harshly, and through the experience it brings us, we shape ourselves once again to somehow be the “opposite of them”. If we deem someone to be an idiot or asshole, we simultaneously produce an opposing image of ourselves as being wise, profound, and kind in contrast to them. If we see someone as being arrogant, selfish, or manipulative, we immediately produce a sense of ourselves as being whatever we consider the opposite to be. In this way, we are literally dependent on them as the means of creating ourselves to be their opposition. We first judge ourselves for having those same feelings, desires, impulses, and traits, which are universal in nature and a part of all humanity, causing us to repress and forget about them, yet we still have a pronounced “reaction to them” in others and all around us. The act of “judging” or discriminating is a natural part of the minds ability to reason, choose and willfully act out choices as the means of creating itself through its experiences. Most of what we refer to as being “judgmental” or as “judging others” is due to an incorrect use of judgment that’s a form of “value judgment”. The criteria that we use for judging ourselves is usually taught to us as a part of our conditioning through the group mind or mass consciousness, and is one of the most basic ways they or it plants the seeds that we use throughout our life to create ourselves and others to “conform” to the general consensus. We’re “taught” what good and bad are as values and beliefs of some kind, and we use this first to create ourselves initially, and then continue to create ourselves by way of it in relationship with everyone and everything else. It’s one of the most primary forms of mind control and brainwashing that’s conducted for the most part in a completely unconscious and automatic manner.

       It’s easy to realize that we only have strong emotional reactions to some people, ideas, and activities, while others we relate to, acknowledge as being good and right and feel at one with. All reaction comes from encountering outside of us what’s the complementary opposite of what’s inside of us. If it’s the same we barely notice it, it blends congruently with our experiences, and we don’t challenge it in any way. When it opposes us (or our self-made image of ourselves), it elicits an immediate and often intense emotional charge, and our thoughts about it that create how we experience it are highly judgmental in the sense of seeing them as bad, repulsive, and despicable somehow. As we judge them, it reinforces our judgment of ourselves, and we repress that idea even further, while still creating ourselves by way of it, as its opposition. All ideas of a moral nature have a very strong emotional component connected to them, just as all actual memories of any kind are formed into memories because of the strong emotions being experienced at the time they were created. An idea or actual memory is activated in us through an emotional charge that’s transmitted from one person to the other, or that we produce inside of us through our natural reaction to it. Our thoughts about things produce our own emotional reaction, and emotions being transmitted by others and received by us control our thoughts through the memories they elicit. All value judgments (right and wrong) have a strong emotional component to them that not only arouse us and drive our thoughts in a compulsive way, but are also the foundation out of which we created ourselves. So to “give up” our judgments, is to transform our ego and our “sense of self”, requiring us to acknowledge and bring into awareness aspects of ourselves that we’ve never outwardly expressed before. When this happens, we don’t know how to be and can feel torn with deep feelings of insecurity and the lingering residue of harsh judgments that we’ve used to shape every aspect of ourselves and our life. In the same manner, we form what we can call actual and objective judgments that are a form of accurate evaluation using “good judgment” and discretion that we have no problem not expressing because it’s honestly not “in us” to be that way. As we come across ideas through an experience of some kind, we’re always defining ourselves through contemplating them, trying them on, running scenarios of what they’d be like if we played them out as a reality, then, sensing ourselves in that situation as a way of realizing what’s actually in us as a part of our character and what’s not. We don’t necessarily judge them as right or wrong, but simply not who we are and not the reality we want to produce and play a part in. For example, sexual promiscuity or adultery may be an idea that’s playing out around us or is a part of our immediate environment, which, as we view it in terms of the reality and what it means about us as a result, what it would cause in other areas of our life, we may realize without doubt that there’s no part of us that’s like that. We’re not inclined to engage in those types of activities. Though we may find ourselves sexually attracted to others occasionally and the opportunities arise in which we could easily participate, or we feel “tempted” somehow, when thinking about the reality of it and how we’d feel being in it doing it, we realize we don’t want it, and so we decide not to. This is different than deciding not to because we feel like it would make us out to be a liar, cheat, deceptive, raunchy and bad person as what forms our decision not to. It’s all about what our “reason is” for making the decision.

       To encounter and become aware of our shadow, embracing it instead of denying it, brings us face to face with who we really are and why we became the way we did. If we admit to ourselves having a feeling and desire towards something that we judge harshly as being bad and wrong to do, and that we also have those same urges and impulses sometimes, it can cause us to go into a bit of an identity crisis. If we realize however that all qualities and traits have their appropriate expression under the right circumstances, and we realize that part of our judgment came from the situation or activity implied by them through association that was inappropriate for expressing that idea, and we look instead for how we could express it in a way that would enhance our current experience and expand our ego’s ability to create unique and diverse experiences of ourselves, we can find the means of expression that will create in a productive and conscious manner while bringing us some level of gratification and satisfaction. Even what seems like the worse traits and activity can be exactly what’s called for under the right circumstances and within the appropriate situation, and as a result, will be the best and most appropriate response. While most believe that the shadow is comprised of our “worst traits” or ones that are easily seen as bad, the fact is it’s comprised of any trait that we deem bad, wrong, weak, or that would somehow mean something bad about us if we were that way. For example, if someone has been led to believe that being “nice” is a form of weakness, perhaps because they were taken advantage of by someone whenever they were nice, they judge themselves as being weak for being that way, and will refuse to be that way and choose to act mean, harsh, or uncaring instead, perceiving that to mean that they’re strong and in control. Someone who’s very compassionate and caring may have ended up feeling like a doormat or as though they’re always being manipulated by those only looking to take, and will consider it a bad trait to openly express, and will become hardened in whatever way they feel they need to in order to suppress that tendency. So judgment isn’t just in regards to what could clearly be seen as a destructive way of being, but it’s formed by whatever we used as the means of creating ourselves by how we interpreted it and experienced it through our formative conditioning. Some people who are in reality exceedingly gentle and kind can put on the appearance of being rude, obtrusive, or tough, and ridicule those who are gentle and kind, as a means of protecting and shielding themselves from what they have experienced as being very negative consequences to being the way they “really are”. Once we realize what’s really happening whenever we are reacting and judging someone, and we choose instead to refrain from acting and turn inwards to see what it is in us that feels such a strong need to judge them, what is the reaction about, and we let a free-flow association of ideas take place where we recall memories that were of a similar nature, and times in our life when we had the same feelings and inclinations towards being that way, we can begin realizing a part of our nature that we convinced ourselves we didn’t have and as a result, forgot about having. We can come to realize that as children in our formative years we didn’t have the ability to reason, judge and choose for ourselves, and so we we’re told how to judge people and in what way to judge them. We we’re taught to be judgmental based on someone else’s opinions, values and beliefs, and criteria for using to shape ourselves and everyone else to be the same way. As children we don’t know who we are and we begin creating ourselves by default through the ideas and opinions of others that we’re taught and come to accept as our own. Once our “core beliefs” are established and our paradigm precisely structured, we continue creating out of it unconsciously, often throughout our lifetime, and as a result, create a false image in place of who we really are as an individual. We only break away from the group mind of the collective unconscious and begin truly creating ourselves by way of our own capacities when we begin gaining self-realization of our dual nature and we take the necessary action to integrate opposing aspects into a “whole being” that’s unified and coherent in all that we do. Through true self-awareness we can begin fashioning ourselves to be the unique individuals we are. We can break away from the mind training of the masses and become a self-referencing source of creative power.

Projection and Judgment as the Tools for Self-Realization Once we realize what’s really going on anytime we have an adverse reaction to someone or something where we’re judging them according to our own criterion and value system, we can see it as the tool it really is. All unknown content of our subconscious mind is constantly being projected and makes up a substantial part of our outer awareness. Anything we’re “reacting to” is because we have the same quality, trait, and tendency in us that we judged just as harshly as we’re judging them. We were conditioned somehow to the same dynamic as an interactive pattern where we took on the opposing role. All reactions form the basis for self-creation through the nature of the reaction and what we tell ourselves about them while contrasting and opposing them and shaping ourselves to be the opposite. We’re always shaping ourselves to either be just like others, or the exact opposite of them. But either way, we are dependent on the active expression of our shared traits as the basis for creating ourselves no matter what role we play in acting it out together. Because our perception of the outer environment is formed from the mental paradigm of the inner environment as a projection, we can come to realize hidden aspects of ourselves and the nature of our conditioning and why we believe what we do, and how we’re always using that to tell a story about things that shapes us simultaneously by way of playing different roles in the same story. We can realize that anytime we’re reacting and judging that we’re looking in a mirror and seeing the reverse image of the same thing. We can turn inwards, and through introspection, begin realizing our connection to the same idea and how it was that we formed our judgments that caused us to deny expressing certain parts of ourselves. We can gain insight into our early conditioning and how we were trained to the mindset that we used to create ourselves and others out of. As adults reviewing a process that was formed and set into motion as a child, we can reevaluate the same ideas with a renewed sense of clarity and see how they can be incorporated into our “known self” as the means to expand, enhance, and invigorate or ego, rather than shattering it. All transformation comes by way of incorporating new aspects into an existing model. By blending with and taking on new and diverse qualities, we can grow ourselves in new ways and expand our range of self-expression and what’s possible, creating a new array of novel experiences. We can learn and experiment with new ways of being. We can try on new ideas to see how we feel, and decide whether or not we want to continue into it, change and alter it somehow, or ignore it in favor of something else. We can come to know what’s truly “in us as us” and what has simply been taught and acquired along the way that we accepted in place of our true self. We can begin using our true ability to intuitively reason, decide and willfully act out our decisions as the means of true independent self-creation. As we come across traits that we definitely have that we associate with very distinct ideas that we honestly can’t see ourselves doing, we can ask ourselves how we can we express this same quality in another way that will be congruent with everything else and produce a desired overall result. We can begin challenging ourselves and developing our creative abilities to self-actualize in new ways. We can break patterns and conventional mindsets in favor of individuality and freedom of self-expression because we realize that as adults we have the discretion and reasoning powers to become self-directed and therefore self-determined.

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.

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.

Creativity – The Relationship between Choice, Will, and Creating Reality

 

It doesn’t take long to realize that in life all things exist in relationship to each other. There’s really no such thing as an independent or solitary act. Everything comes as a result of something else, or as a synchronized series of events that play out over a period of time. While we can say that “no choice” is a choice, or that unconscious decisions that are seemingly made without awareness or in a deliberate manner, that are based primarily on feelings, emotions, or impulses of some sort, are still using your will because you’re willingly acting them out, this is passive use of the will that likewise creates in our life in an unconscious manner. Choice and will, like all faculties of the mind and soul, exist in both active and passive form based on awareness and deliberate action, or without direct awareness and in an automatic fashion.

Anytime we’re aware of choice, and we negotiate it in an intentional manner, it usually comes as a decision between a conditioned response and a conflict of some sort as a conscience or inner awareness that makes us hesitate and resist it, and so we look for other options. Whenever we make an “actual” and true decision in a fully aware and intentional manner, we naturally leave all other options we were previously debating behind and move forward to create the choice we’ve made as our reality. We remove our attention from all other ideas, become single-minded, focusing exclusively on the reality of our choice, and we direct all of our attention and actions into creating it. Once our mind is made up and all conflict dissolves, our only movement becomes directed by the imagined reality of our decision, and we act systematically to create it. This is why “choice and free will” are always presented together, because they’re different aspects of the same creative process.

If we experience the inability to do something that we believe we’ve chosen to do, it’s due to the fact that we haven’t truly made the decision for it, but are still bartering, debating, and negotiating it. It can be showing us that we still harbor inner conflict around it, still have attachments of some kind to what we’re deciding against, or we have conflicting beliefs and values of some sort that are holding us to indecision. Often our emotions and feelings are contradicting it or wanting something different than our rational, reasoning mind, and so our mind is divided. Anytime there’s a division between the subconscious and conscious mind, with one aspect of the mind acting to contradict or counteract the other one, we sit in limbo not knowing what to do, always going back and forth, sabotaging our own efforts, never actually able to settle on one or the other, until someone or something makes the decision for us and we no longer have a choice in the matter.

 

While there’s a tendency for society to tell you to pick “one over the other”, to follow your heart and not your mind (as if they’re different things), the fact is, it’s always about a balance between the two. An alignment that forms a single mind as a single goal, free of all conflict, that works dynamically in-sync with each other to create the reality of that choice. Anytime we pose one aspect against another, we’re doomed to failure or a seeming success that merely forms the foundation for inner turmoil and conflict to play out as a constant realization of betraying ourselves in some way. Thought and emotion, intellect and feeling, heart and head, are always unified, one producing and sustaining the other. There’s no such thing as a division in the true sense of the word. The masculine and feminine aspects are only capable of creating when forming union that produces an offspring that’s a combination of the two. They always act in unison as “one idea” that produces the material reality as a correspondence of that idea.

The Power of Emotions

Making a “true decision” where all aspects are aligned and agree, can often be quite difficult, and may actually come over a period of time while different aspects that negate the desired outcome in some way are played out and explored in greater depth, so that the necessary realizations can be obtained, which serves to confirm what you need to decide. Our subconscious, which is the seat of all of our conditioning as our mental paradigm, habitual tendencies, regular emotional states, and dynamics that are magnetic and compulsive in nature, seeks only to maintain the status quo as a form of self-preservation by continuing to play out the thematic dynamics that we’ve built our identity around, and need to keep playing out somehow in order to maintain our “sense of self”.

We keep casting ourselves in the roles we know how to play, and telling the story we know how to tell and do so in a natural, automatic, and compulsive fashion. We’re magnetically drawn to it even when intellectually and through reasoning we know we don’t want to be or shouldn’t. It works through our emotions, which are often gripping and intense, holding us captive to passions and intense emotional experiences that saturate our body with the chemistry and hormones of the emotions, satisfying a form of addiction. Emotions, being the motivating force of the subconscious mind and body, which is habitual and automatic in nature, are habit forming and we literally become addicted to them, even when we hate ourselves for doing it. Emotions, which are the driving force of instinct, are designed to produce automatic behavior that don’t require will, thought and decision, or self-awareness of any kind. We become addicted to pain just as easily as we do pleasure, because they’re both a drug produced internally that we become dependent on and use not only to create and maintain our state of mind, but also to create our reality out of, which is how we act in an indirect manner on ourselves to create ourselves.

Anytime emotions and passions go against reasoning and rational thought, they nearly always win, because they’re experience as a strong internal sensation that’s very compelling with a form of urgency, whereas clear thought is more neutral and something we seem to experience in more of a dissociated perspective of witnessing as being outside of or above the situation looking at it from the perspective of a “whole” rather than in it as a “part of it”. Once emotions take hold and grip us in some way, usually through memory of some kind that’s used to create in the present, it tends to cloud and control our thinking through a form of seductive persuasion, making it difficult to resist.

When this happens, decisions usually come as a gradual process, where once the desire to change becomes persistent, and we continue playing out the emotional dramas preventing us from implementing them, we begin having realizations about them that start dissolving the illusion we’ve built around them, loosening their grip, and they begin disintegrating and falling away. Once we have a notion as the desire to change in some manner, breaking an established pattern, it tends to steadily grow until it reaches fruition as an actual decision that we begin acting on to make it an actual reality, leaving the old behind and starting something new.

The Power of Belief

In a like manner, we can appear to have made a decision, and started it in motion, while maintaining a belief of some kind that prevents it, causes a feeling of conflict somehow, or results in what seems like the inability to take action, or not knowing what to do. Beliefs can be quite difficult to identify because they form the very basis of our experience of reality, and we often mistake them as being “fact or true”. Belief and the reality formed from it is the most basic and prevalent demonstration of the “power of the mind to create reality”. We create the experience of our beliefs perfectly without realizing that it’s our own creation, and is not real or true at all in the objective sense. Because many of them come from actual experience in terms of how we “interpreted” the events of our life by telling ourselves a story about them, we don’t realize that we actually made them up using our imagination (will). Likewise, we’re also taught certain ideas that we accepted as being factual or true, and use as the foundation for building entire networks that are all based on the same belief system, and accepting the ideas of others that were given to us and willingly adopted by us as our own thoughts. Usually the only way to upsurge a belief and bring it back into a fluid and negotiable state, is by introducing contradictory evidence that proves it wrong, one-sided, or reveals it as a skewed version. While many choose instead to argue against, deny, or ignore altogether anything that serves to shine light on the validity of long held beliefs, this too is a decision that we willingly act out and employ as the means of creating the reality it implies.

When we always act to defend our beliefs instead of being willing to consider other possibilities, we condemn ourselves to the confinement of the reality of those beliefs. When we feel we’ve made a clear and conscious decision to change our life in some way, no longer running on memory and autopilot, and are confronted with what seems like the inability to act in order to create it, or the “path to take” in moving in the new direction, it’s usually due to a conflicting and limiting belief of some sort. We know when both aspects of our mind are in alignment with each other when we make a decision that lacks any kind of inner conflict, and we feel a sense of passion and urgency in acting to create it. We don’t have to figure anything out, we’re not stumped or confused, lacking motivation of the drive to do it, but instead, from that point on direct all of our attention and energy into actively moving forward on it and systematically producing it.

Knowing What to Do

The idea of being aware of the need or ability to make a decision puts us in the position of actually creating in a conscious and intentional manner. We create our decisions by focusing and concentrating our full attention on them, and consistently acting on them in whatever way is immediately apparent. We move forward with the attitude of being and doing. It’s very natural for us to not necessarily “know what to do” or how to be when we’re stepping into something new, because we don’t have memory or previous experience to go on. All new actions and creations come to us, not as a whole idea or plan laid out in detail for us to follow, but as a desire for what we’ve chosen, and a notion about how to start. If we simply act on what we know to do while remaining focused on our intention and desired outcome, it starts a process in motion that comes as an intuitive and synchronistic unfolding where one idea leads to another, and investigating or penetrating one aspect reveals the next aspect as the “next step”. We’re often required to have faith in the fact that if we simply act on what we do know and therefore step into it and start the process in motion, that the next step will become apparent.

Stepping into the Unknown

All well laid out “action plans”, so to speak, come as the result of rehashing and reformulating past memories to form what appears to be a new idea, yet in reality, is merely a new version of an old idea. When we form a truly new idea as a reality for creating, it usually comes through a part of us that’s always been there, urging us on to “become” who we truly are as our dream for our life that we negotiated away in an attempt to conform to the ideas of society imposed on us and the need to fit in, and we step into the flow of life by embracing an inspiration that comes to us seemingly from out of nowhere (though its often been there forever), that takes hold within us, becoming relentless and persistent. Once we receive it as an intimate connection that appeals to our true self, urging us on and encouraging us, it can almost become an obsession. An idea for our life that we can’t seem to let go of because it speaks to us with a vivid honesty as a form of promise that restores hope and the fulfillment of our true purpose and mission in life.

All truly inspired ideas come to us by resonating with our deepest parts, the ones that we remain unfamiliar with while having a deep longing for, crying out to be free, shrouded and suffocated by illusions that we blindly accept as our fate, surrendering our true destiny and condemning our soul to a wasted and meaningless life. These form the big, life-altering decisions. The ones that are truly difficult to make, because in doing so, our identity and who we’ve been up to that point becomes compromised, and is no longer validated and sustained. To follow it, make the decision to surrender to our higher calling, means our entire previous life situation and roles will change, sometimes drastically, and we’ll be left scrambling, faced with the unknown, new conditions and circumstances, a new way of being that requires trust and a belief in ourselves and our inherent ability to know what to do when faced with brand new options that only guarantee uncertainty.

When we make a decision to be and do something different in our life, especially when we’re older and have an established lifestyle and habitual patterns that we’ve built our identity around, where we have no past memory to go off of, we realize that the path unfolds through the series of decisions we’re making moment by moment as we go. In this total newness comes true creativity. Every decision, no matter how minute, becomes about “who am I?” What do I want to create? Who am I going to be, here, now, in this moment? What am I going to do, how am I going to act, and what consequences will result? We start getting a true feeling for how we actually create our lives through our everyday choices and actions, often for the first time as an adult.

Once we’re cast into a life that we just sort of ended up in through an unconscious and natural process of growing up, where decisions seem to be made for us by our situation and responsibilities, and we fall into the habit of making decisions in an unconscious manner where they’re made for us or we simply accept them, and even when we maintain an awareness of what we want to do instead, we choose to give it up in favor of what we feel we need and should do. After a while we find ourselves living life in an automatic and habitual fashion where the only decisions we have to make is what to eat for dinner, or what to watch on TV, and even those decisions can be made for us by others. We can slowly fall into the reality of never having to make decisions and actually creating something new, and instead just act to maintain the habitual pattern already established and go with the flow by coasting through our life.

To make true decisions that bring about change and create in a conscious way requires a form of courage and willingness to create something new and unfamiliar. It can mean giving up security and established success, or a glorified self-image, and wiping the slate clean, starting all over with a brand new idea for yourself and your life. When we make one decision and actually act to create the reality of that decision, it naturally leads to the need to consistently make more decisions, because you’re the creator and they’re not being made for you by someone else. When this happens a new sense of freedom comes about, and you start getting a real sense of who you actually are. Anytime and unconscious process becomes conscious, we gain tremendous insights into unfamiliar aspects of ourselves that remained hidden, subdued, or just barely out of sight. Naturally with this awareness and freedom comes the true responsibility for what we create and who we become through our own volition. We can no longer dodge responsibility or blame our shortcomings on others. This realization alone can be as terrifying as it is empowering.

Many people go through their entire life with decisions that are being made for them by others, or simply complying with the general consensus and trained mindset of society. Many “fall into a situation” in what seems like a haphazard method of chance, because they were creating from an unaware state with no realization of the consequences or end results of the actions. Many start off not knowing for sure what they want to do, then as they go along just end up in situations that seem to dictate the course of their life for them, and they feel trapped, or something about it becomes more important than their freedom to decide, and so they choose it instead, going with it till the situation ends or drastically changes somehow, then, they’re right back where they started. Drifting aimlessly into an abyss with no sense of purpose or vision for their life, scared and filled with an unbearable sense of dread and insecurity. Having lived so long without the ability to create through active use of choice and will, they feel lost and confused, and as if they have no ability to move their life in a new direction. Usually, without even knowing what direction they want their life to move in. When this happens, they usually simply find a new situation that they can wrap themselves around, and continue on their way, choosing to remain unconscious in the most basic sense of the word.

Creativity

All true creativity comes through a balanced and aligned mind, where feelings, emotions, and desire are the motivating force and formative factor of thought as an imagined idea. To decide on something is to choose an idea that you then act to willfully create. You direct all of your attention (undivided mind) and activities into the fulfillment of your decision. Choice gives us a vision as a firm idea that we’re then required to create. In this same way, an artist decides what feeling they want to capture and express by becoming one with it. They envision that idea as a sensory reality in a way that invokes a love for it, and then they go about doing what’s necessary to create it. They engage in whatever course of action is necessary to produce it. Naturally this requires great skill that only comes through constant practice and a sense of diligence.

So if you’re struggling with creating what you want, or making the necessary decisions in your life to better it somehow, and you’re always going back and forth, or never actually being able to bring yourself to do what seems like a “big move”, just allow yourself to reflect on and become aware of all that comes up in relation to it as a conflicting feeling or idea. Then, go into each conflicting idea in depth in order to gain whatever realization about it that you need in order to make a true decision as to whether or not to continue with it, tweak and reformulate it, or leave it behind and quit thinking about it altogether. As you gain insight into what it is that’s preventing you from making a decision, you’ll know what other decisions you need to make first. Because decisions for change require sacrifice of some kind, they can produce a lot of inner turmoil that will need resolving in order to reside peacefully in that decision.

We know when we’ve actually made a decision because we’re no longer debating it while considering other options, and we simply go about creating it. We hold an idea firmly in our mind with no inner conflict or anxiety around what we have to give up in achieving it, and we feel a sense of purpose and inspiration in regards to it. A feeling of devotion and dedication to it fills us, and we feel peaceful and content in the reality of it. All distractions fade away and focus all activity towards producing it. We move forward with a clear conscience and a feeling of certainty, and no longer look back or miss what we left behind. We’re filled with a sense of excitement and anticipation, alive with the true power to create the life we desire in an intentional and deliberate manner. We gain a new sense of ourselves that becomes a self-perpetuating force, and we fall in love with life as our own creation and ourselves as our own creator.

The Unified Reality of the Lower Plane and the Nature of the Subconscious Mind

There’s always a Divine Paradox playing out in the most basic sense as what appears to be a single reality that’s actually three-fold in nature as multiple planes that act together to create the perception of a single, unified reality. This is because what we refer to as the “higher plane” and it’s parallel “lower plane” exist in polarity to each other through what we could call a “reflection” of each other as a reverse image or as an “inner reality” that forms the basis for the perception of itself as an “outer reality” where the inherently “passive aspects” become the “active components” of its outer reflection. And while we like to think that the upper plane exists in a harmonious state of unity and singularity, while the lower plane is dual in nature and exists in a primarily “separated state” of individual components all operating independent of each other, one having nothing to do with the other, the fact is that what we call a “unified state” actually exists as having “dual” masculine and feminine components as the electromagnetic forces that serve to structure and animate the entire material plane in an harmonious and unified manner.

We take this basic misconception a step further and say that “we are all one” down here in the material plane, while imagining that when we return to a true unified state of shedding the material body and existing purely in our spiritual state, that we “blend back into the whole“, shedding our identity as an individual. Yet exactly the opposite is true. We are able to manifest (be born) into the material plane by taking on a physical body of the animal kingdom. This body is solely governed within the material plane by the subconscious mind which in the lower plane is the feminine and passive aspect of the mind, that is actually the active component that has full creative capacity but no “personal will” to think for itself in terms of original thoughts or to “create itself” in an individual manner apart from its species and kind. The subconscious mind is what we also refer to as the “instinctual mind” as the morphogenetic field (astral) of the material world that generates reality based on sensory, emotional impulses that serve to produce automatic behaviors.

The language of the subconscious is symbolic and metaphorical as ideas formed in the imagination as pictures and the reality of an idea. These “reality oriented thoughts” are memory and archetypes of some form that simply act to impregnate the subconscious with a possibility for producing as an experience that gives it an automatic program that it plays out as a means of creating without resistance. Emotion as a state of mind is always directly connected to memory as the reality and type of experience produced by that emotion that multiplies and increases it through the expression of it, which serves to give us more of the same emotion. Emotion is the electrical current that stimulates and sets into motion an entire unconscious process as a perception of reality that produces automatic behaviors. Emotions serve as a “colored lens” we look through that determine what aspect of reality as containing an infinite number of possibilities we act to “tune into”, bring into an active state by resonating with it, and cooperatively participate in providing the vehicle and the means for it to express in the outer world as a reality that affords us an experience of a particular nature as an automated process. Whenever we’re triggered by a strong emotion, it instantly renders us unconscious and we begin running an automatic program.

This is self-evident and very easy to realize by simply observing our own minds activity, and realizing that emotions are always associated to memories as the “state we were in” when we created the memory as a story-line of some sort, that also acts to keep that memory playing out in our life in a repetitive manner by simply maintaining the emotional state associated with it. We are conditioned (trained in an automatic fashion) to dynamics as emotional states that produce distinct types of realities that have correlating behaviors inherent in them. Emotions form “chemistry in our body” that act in much the same way any psychoactive drug acts, and not only alters our state of mind forming hallucinations of various sorts, but are also addictive. We become addicted to certain emotional states, and we not only live out of those states in a habitual fashion, but we act to create the experiences that will give us more of the same type of emotions. This acts to provide ourselves with a “fix”, because we’re capable of producing the drug internally through the proper external stimulus.

By allowing emotions being transmitted through projections of others and as active states in the atmosphere around us to enter into our body, take hold and rise up in our imagination as the reality of the emotion, that’s then used in place of the neutral, objective reality as an illusion that simultaneously produces automatic behaviors, we become instinctual animals that are governed by the same forces that operate within the natural world of the plant and animal kingdom. In this sense, we are absolutely directly connected to and a part of the “same mind” as being “one with” everybody and everything else. When we live primarily out of this aspect of our mind, we become like an animal and prone to the “herd mentality” of simply creating out of our formative conditioning as a trained mindset that lacks the ability to ‘think for itself” and therefore shape itself as an individual apart from the herd through active use of choice and free will. This conscious, willful aspect of the mind is the active mind of the higher plane that’s always self-creating in an intentional and deliberate way, cultivating it’s individuality by not being subject to emotional states and the illusions they create, and thereby not acting as a blind and passive receptor for the thoughts of others. Anytime we utilize the higher capacities of our mind to self-create in a unique fashion, we shape ourselves as individuals that are strikingly different from the crowd and are not influence and changed by the group mentality of the “collective unconscious”.

When we actively cultivate ourselves by first recognizing and fully embracing our divine nature and higher capacities of the mind to create within the material world in a deliberate way, then actively utilize those capacities in the everyday sense of staying fully conscious and present within the events of life making constant choices as to what to take on and allow to express through us, and what to keep out so it doesn’t contaminate us, we become the master of the lower plane. The conscious, willful and aware mind is the aspect of the mind that guides, directs, and seeds the passive, subconscious mind with the ideas it wants to create as an experience of reality through which it then actively creates itself by identifying with those creations. Whatever reality we act as a channel for expressing and creating as “our reality”, serve to shape us through how we associate with it through the experience it gives us. As we have experiences, whether passively or actively produced, we are sense ourselves within those experiences, and identify with them. We become the product of our experiences, all of which, naturally, are self-created either from a primarily unconscious state that feels as though our experiences simply happen to us without our control, and therefore not being created by us, or as intentionally produced by how we choose to use our own mind and imagination to create the type of experiences we want to use as the means to shape ourselves by way of them.

A great deal of confusion can result from the inability to distinguish the difference between neutral events within the outer world that seemingly take place without our will or control, that we refer to as ‘objective in nature”, and how we “experience those events” as an inner process that reforms them in our imagination giving them meaning while telling ourselves a story about them. All events of the material world, though produced by the subconscious mind as a group mentality, exist as neutral and unbiased to the conscious mind of the higher nature that doesn’t get its identity from the material plane, but rather uses the elements of the material world as the means for creating its own experiences. When we live out of our unconscious mind as our conditioning, we’re always using the memories of the past as the means for interpreting the events of the present to mean the same thing. Whatever emotion is being expressed in the event in terms of it stimulating us with that same emotion, determines what memories we access and call forth that were created out of events of the same emotional nature, and use as the means of producing the same “type of experiences” as an “interpretation” of the current events. In this way, the lower mind of instinct driven by emotion and memory govern and render the higher capacities of our mind passive and use our will to create in our life in an impulsive and unconscious manner.

While we tend to think that life itself is basically dual in nature, because only dual aspects are active on the lower plane, the fact is life as reality is three-fold in nature, and produced by three parallel dimensions that together form the same plane as multidimensional in nature. Likewise, the mind and soul are also three-fold in nature, and all act in unison to create the illusion of a unified material reality. Just as we classify that there are “4 Elements” that make up the material world, there are actually only 2 primary and actual Elements, the masculine (Fire) and Feminine (water), who blend together as a combination to produce the other 2 (air and earth) as their offspring. Likewise, while there is always an active and passive component of the same thing on each plane that together operate as complementary opposites to stimulate each other, the planes themselves also exist in polarity to each other where one is active and expansive and the other passive and receptive. While we have a subconscious mind as the dominate mind of the lower plane that acts to “birth” and give rise to the self-conscious mind of the “personal will” that identifies and operates fully within that plane, we also have an active component of the higher plane as our Higher Self (Mind) and Will, that exists in a polar state to our lower self.

When the conscious mind of the lower plane is active, it tends to override and prevent the conception and transmission of the Higher Will. The only way we can draw down and act as a receptor for Higher Consciousness is by quieting and returning the “conscious, thinking mind” to a passive and subdued state, so that the Higher Mind can act to impregnate the subconscious mind, which acts as a natural receptor for the masculine counterpart, with a seeded idea that it’ll turn into a reality. The subconscious mind reflects and casts the image of the conceived idea in the imagination, allowing the conscious mind to witness it as a mental impression and realize that it has come from a higher source because it’s original in nature, and therefore align itself with it and act in a cooperative manner to co-create it as an experience of reality. Reality in this case being a product of both aspects of the mind acting in a harmonious and unified fashion to produce a joint reality. The Higher Will seeds the lower mind of the subconscious with an idea that it then produces both as an internal reality that’s witnessed by the self-conscious mind of the personal will, and together they act to produce the external reality of the same nature as an experience of it, that’s then used by the soul as the means of shaping itself by way of that experience.

The paradox becomes obvious when we realize that the entire lower plane exists in a unified state within the higher plane, which is what serves to organize, orchestrate, and sustain it through its passive component, which is the active and dominate component of the lower plane. The entire lower plane is unified through the same passive mind and DNA, which is a component of the subconscious mind that’s also passive and receptive in nature and seeded as suggestion by the active and willful mind of the higher plane. The lower plane itself also has active and passive components, both of which interact with each other to produce a unified reality. The Higher Consciousness of the upper plane, which exists in a unified state of containing dual aspects in a harmonious state of equilibrium (represented by the element of air or atmosphere), separates as it descends into the lower planes of materialism, producing a masculine (fire) and feminine (water) aspect of the same thing necessary in order to perceive itself as another, and to bear witness to its own creation.

The Higher Self, which contains both the active and passive components, just as the material mind it produces does, divides Itself as the means of creating an inner and outer, self and other, essence and object, all of which are the same idea being played out on different levels and scales while partially submerged in an animal body governed by the subconscious mind that produces and maintains the entire material plane through a passive state that’s operated in an automatic fashion by instinct. Within the material plane of the subconscious mind, we are prone to becoming “like everyone else” and accepting the general mindset of mass consciousness through a form of “herd mentality” where the same impulses cause us to behave as if “one unit”. On the higher plane of what we think of as a unified state of true oneness, where the conscious and willful aspect is dominate, we imagine that we lack “individuality” and exist as a part of the same consciousness and have no will of our own. Yet the fact is, the only thing that transcends the lower realms and is drawn up and into the higher realms is the part of us that’s individual in nature and created by our own hand through active use of choice and free will. All aspects of ourselves developed to be “animal like”, stay within the lower planes of which they are a part.

When we live our life out of a predominately passive state of mind, driven by our emotions and programmed in an automatic fashion by the thoughts of others that we blindly accept as our own, acting impulsively through various forms of emotional, knee-jerk reactions where we’re completely controlled by the elemental forces of the lower regions, we develop ourselves through a lower, instinctual form of consciousness, and after death of the body, remain in the lower regions of the animal kingdom. When we employ our ability to consciously create by thinking for ourselves, making decisions based on our original and individual thoughts, and willfully act out those choices to form our reality, and we sculpt ourselves as self-made individuals that are unique in nature, where no two are alike outside of the fact that we all share an animal body with basic needs. At death of the body, the energies that it’s comprised of disintegrate and migrate back into their natural habitats. All energies return to the sphere from which it originates and resides as a natural state. The only part of us that transcends to the higher spheres is the parts that were self-created in an intentional manner and formed our individuality. Only our individuality exists in full and remains intact on the planes of higher consciousness.

When we create the larger part of ourselves to be “unique and original”, created while in a fully conscious state through personal will, we transcend to higher planes where will is the governing and active factor. The most fundamental paradox that we all live out of is the fact that we are all responsible for our own creation, and who we become is based on either lending our will to others, or utilizing the higher capacities of our mind to direct and create ourselves. We are always either being controlled by material means of some form, or the one doing the controlling. We’re always either consciously utilizing forces to self-create, or we’re being utilized by them. We’re either being determined by others and society, or we’re determining ourselves by separating from them and identifying fully with our divine nature and our ability to self-create by way of directing the natural forces that govern the lower, material realm of emotion, memory, and instinct. All that’s created to be of an animal nature stays within that realm and isn’t capable of transcending to the higher realms that require full use of higher capacities of the mind. All who are self-created to be of a divine nature transcend naturally to that domain at the death of their animal body.

The Law of the Monad – The Brain, Membrane, and Will as the Spoken Word that Manifests a Corresponding Reality

The Monad is represented in a geometric form as a sphere or circle with a dot in the center, symbolic of the inner expanding and extending to become the spatial sphere of the outer. The information of the core, germ, or brain expands equally in all directions and fills every aspect of the space within the sphere (atmosphere) with the same information (hologram). This is the model of the conscious, active mind, seeding and programming the fertile subconscious mind of the material plane. Words that are spoken inwardly as thought act as a seed that’s conceived by the imagination of the subconscious mind, where it’s shaped into the form indicated by the “meaning” of the word. The meaning of the word is developed into a sensory form with emotional attributes and qualities, giving it distinct characteristics,  and it becomes a “etheric shell” (phantom-like holographic image) for drawing in the dark flame (invisible) of life-force energy, giving rise to an electromagnetic field, which acts as both a magnetic, contracting field, and an electric, expanding field. With words we engrave signs into the astral light that forms them into a hologram as the vibratory frequency of the form. As we cast an image into the contained sphere of the mind, it becomes the perceptual lens that we look through seeing that same idea in the reality around us, and connecting to and interacting with it.

The Monad also represents the Law of fields nested within fields. A core or germ as a central field that spontaneously births or gives rise to a greater field of the same nature, forming a kind of hierarchy, where the outer, greater field contains the entire smaller field within it, while being dependent on it as the foundation for its existence. All laws emerge out of a primary law as a synchronized process of growth and development. The brain (organized information) forms the membrane as the outer body, and the membrane becomes the brain for the next membrane. All dimensions exist as membranes that are nested within and spontaneously produced as an outgrowth by the series of membranes that preceded it. All reality comes as layers upon layers all produced as a spontaneous growth process where all are supported by the one that precedes it and acts as the foundation for the next one to naturally rise out of as an outgrowth or extension.

Our will is an active force that engraves signs as living images into the heavenly sphere that surrounds us (mind), as a dark flame (invisible field) that begins forming a fog-like essence of astral (star) light into an empty form that will serve as a vessel or vehicle for consciousness to embody, give life to, and express through “as” the nature of the form. Words as an idea spoken inwardly as thought (internal dialogue), impregnates (seeds) the imagination of the subconscious, which is the material forming mind, where it gestates and is steadily grown and developed into a well-defined form that resembles a ghost-like, neutral image of grey tones, that’s then imbued with sensory attributes that give it properties as radiant colors that act to “draw in” and give rise to an electromagnetic field, which further forms and stabilizes the image while magnetizing it with emotions. Once an idea possesses an electromagnetic field and is cast into the ether surrounding the body, it extends out becoming an inherent part of the outer environment (membrane), while becoming an inherent part of our “perceptual lens” as a filter that we look through, and we “see it” all around us and naturally gravitate towards it in our immediate environment.

As it blends into and becomes a part of the membrane of our mind as a perceptual field, it then acts as the basis to form and extend itself even further, seeding and becoming a part of our immediate environment as a regional membrane (greater mind), and so on, until it becomes an inherent part of our everyday, extended reality. The mind creates reality as a rippling effect by propagating waves through the ether that reorganize it through resonance by what’s “turned on”, stimulated and brought forth into active expression, and what’s “turned off”, and recedes and disappears (All physical form is created by the same laws that operate DNA). We don’t necessarily act to create or actually manifest the physical world around us (although we can), which exists in an objective and neutral state devoid of meaning and containing all possibilities for any version of reality, but rather to influence, rearrange, and manipulate it into new forms as a primary means of self-expression and creation that’s outwardly expressed as actions.

In the purely spiritual and mental state of cause, thought is an active force and serves as the basis for all material creation, which has no will of its own. Likewise, the subconscious mind of the material plane has no will of its own and is passive and receptive in nature, and produces all behavior in an automatic fashion as instinctual impulses that are motivated by emotions. On the material plane emotions are equivalent to thought on the higher mental plane, and act to produce creative activity without a thought process of any kind and void of intention and purpose (in the personal sense). Thought as an idea only creates on the material plane by merging into the astral plane of feeling sensation and emotions, which is what acts to organize the life-essence into the form of the thought, giving it sensory attributes that invoke feelings as internal sensations that call forth the equivalent and complementary emotion as a chemical reaction that alters the state of the body to be of the same nature as the emotional idea.

A “sign” (idea, symbol, metaphor) willfully cast into the ether of the lower mind through desire and intention, forms a etheric body as a holographic shell that acts as a passive receptor for an electromagnetic field that stabilizes the image into a seemingly solid form where it serves to attract the active life force and consciousness,  which acts as the brain or mind that rises up out of it, surrounding it with an extended field, forming the reality as the congruent outer environment necessary for it to exist as an outer atmosphere or membrane, that becomes the basis for producing a series of membranes (dimensions) as an inherent part of the (pre)existing reality. The higher mind, drawn up from within, casts an image into the electromagnetic field of the lower mind of the body, where it’s conceived by the womb of the imagination, and becomes the basis for producing an equivalent corresponding life-form as an inherent part of the outer reality from which we “experience it”. Through the experience of it we “acquire it” as memory, which acts to shape us by way of its integration.

What rises up within us as a mental impression that forms our state or mood as the experience of it that we create internally by thinking about it, becomes our vibratory frequency. The union of thought and feeling in the imagination form experience as an emotional state that regulates the vibratory state of the body, which forms the outer reality as a state-in-form. What we think, feel, imagine, and project, we perceive as a natural part of our outer world. Whatever mood or mental state we’re in based on the thoughts and emotions we’re living through, serves to attract and stimulate that same mood or state in everyone and everything else (resonance), calling it forth into active expression. We then perceive them through the same state and as possessing the same qualities of that state, then interact with them creating the “experience” of that state made manifest (outside of us), and absorb it back into ourselves as memory.

Whatever state we vibrate at, based on our thoughts, feelings, and emotions (which always go together) that we entertain and become a vessel for expressing in the world, we use, whether unintentionally through a lack of awareness or a seeming inability to control our thoughts which run repetitively in an habitual and haphazard manner, much like a default mode, or whether intentionally by deliberately choosing and embedding our thoughts as internal dialogue in an intentional and purposeful manner to consciously create ourselves through the experiences and memory they produce. Our thoughts as words spoken internally, act in the same manner as the original creation (all of life was called forth by the spoken word), call forth the reality of the thoughts as our perception and experience of them in the outer world. First by “informing” our body as the equivalent of our thoughts as their garment or outer image, then as our immediate environment and relationships, which all express and are corresponding analogies of the same idea played out on a larger scale through a variety of dynamics, all of which maintain the same meaning and provide us with the same type of experience that we use to carefully fashion ourselves by way of the memories they afford us.

Thought-Forms: Scalar Energy, Electromagnetic Fields, and Bio-Holograms

Both the Pineal gland and the DNA of our cellular structure are composed of liquid crystalline substances that act as a receiver, transducer, and transmitter of consciousness as thought-forms or archetypal ideas that provide a metaphorical structure or blueprint for creating a corresponding idea as a personal experience of reality. All vibration is a carrier wave for information that has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that composes matter (light) into patterns. This self-organizing mechanism uses the information inherent in the frequency to form an etheric (phantom) hologram as the electromagnetic field for the living form. All vibration as a frequency is dual in nature as an acoustic wave that forms an optical image as the visualization or inherent structural pattern of the frequency. Vibration, as a universal thought/idea, enters into the polarized mind (electromagnetic field) of an archetypal form, creating an interference pattern (Dyad), where it’s modified through a process of adaption to be compatible to the individual mind, which translates it into a coherent form as a personalized version of the same idea. Subtle energy as pure consciousness and life force can move into and through a material form, while simultaneously organizing and animating it. Scalar energy (Tesla), represented by the Monad in Sacred Geometry, is a conscious energy field (quantum vacuum) that’s spherical and expands equally in all directions and fills the entire space with information as a dynamic matrix of frequencies that exist in a purely potential state (not actualized). These potential frequencies are a cluster of smaller frequencies that are coherent as a pattern, that when it’s drawn into and absorbed by another mind-field that’s of the opposite (polarized) and complementary (similar pattern) frequency, forms into an interference pattern (Dyad) which structurally rearranges the idea into a new version by amplifying some aspects, while canceling out other aspects. In the same fashion as DNA is configured into sequences by “switching on” some features while “switching off” others, creating a new formula as reorganized information that alters the electromagnetic field (EMF) as the etheric hologram used as a new blueprint for constructing or transforming an exact duplicate as a bio-system.

The body is polarized to the soul as a personalized field of energy, structured through experience that becomes memory as an integrative, accumulative process, and the soul/mind is polarized to the spirit as the Akashic field, which is scalar energy as a “field of information” that hasn’t been altered from its original origin as ideas in a purely potential state. The soul/mind or electromagnetic energy field of the body, draws on the scalar field of potential ideas (archetypes), collapsing the field as a wave form into one possibility that’s draw in and actualized by the soul/mind to create corresponding experiences that it uses to in-form itself through the memory the experience provides. The soul is a dynamic matrix of interwoven frequencies (ideas) that are coherent, correlated, and self-perpetuating as a harmonious version of reality that it uses as the means for self-creating. The soul as the mind of the body, acts as a medium, or bridge between the spiritual realm of pure archetypal ideas and the physical body of personalized variations of universal ideas. Spirit remains pure and unformed because it never comes into a material body, which reformulates it through the relationship it forms with it into a new version that becomes the bases for producing a subjective reality. The soul is an amalgamation that blends gold (pure essence) as untarnished and uncontaminated substance with profane and ordinary substance (minerals), where it’s altered based on what it mixes and becomes one with. As our mind acts to receive information from the Akashic field of archetypal ideas, we become one with those ideas by blending with them and reforming them. What we think and turn into imaginary realities, we become in actual form. Whatever we give our attention to, we channel our life-force energy into, and become one with it in spirit (mind). We draw it into our mind, think about it, and build it into a reality as an inner experience of it. We create the inner imaginary reality as an experience that becomes the perceptual lens for seeing and interacting with that same reality all around us as the outer expression of the inner imagination. As we think and imagine, we act “on ourselves” to become the same as our thoughts. We literally program ourselves through our thoughts, which act as a holographic template (3-D reality) for the subconscious mind as the consciousness of the body, DNA, and heart, to connect with that same idea on a larger scale and in greater complexity in everything around us, and give us the experience of the idea as a corresponding outer reality.  As our thoughts inform our mind and body as a coherent unit, we tune ourselves to the vibratory frequency of those thoughts, altering the vibratory structure of our mental paradigm, changing how we experience reality. Scalar energy, as the unified field of ideas in their potential state, is absorbed into material form through resonance, where a unified idea divides into an electromagnetic field (EMF) as the astral form or hologram of the idea (frequency as a bio-pattern) that produces the etheric form that serves to organize, inform, and structure the body and the entire outer material reality to be of the same idea as a series of correspondences and associations. The mind as the EMF of the body, acts as a tuner and receiver for thoughts as ideas, that it uses to shape astral light (star light) as a gaseous-fluid-like essence into a holographic form as an imaginary reality that forms the basis for a living bio-system. The Pineal gland, which exists in direct relationship with the Pituitary (master gland that regulates all glandular functions of the body), is an oval sphere filled with fluid and bio-luminescent crystals that serves as a receiver for acoustic waves that reflect over the outer surface of the Pineal, translating it into an image that has dimension as a hologram. It’s the physical mechanism as a metaphor for the law that operates by way of it in the material sense, where information as ideas is turned into a holographic form of the pattern inherent in the acoustic wave. This holographic image or scenario as an imagined reality becomes the basis for “speaking” and calling forth that reality in the outer world. Our inner thought as a verbal narrative that shapes the reality it’s talking about in the mind’s eye, is how the mind works to shape the elements (subtle essence) of the outer plane to match the vision of its inner thoughts. As information is received and reflected on the outer crystalline liquid structure of the pineal, it literally forms our “lens of our perception” that we “look through” to perceive the outer world reshaping it to be of the same idea. Ideas exist as archetypes that are more of a theme than an actual fixed idea. Through the intricate process of adaptation and modification, universal archetypes are turned into a personal version that we then become subject to. Through a series of adaptations that form a chain-of-association as correspondences, we “in-form” matter as the structural hologram of that thematic idea, both as our inner self and DNA –cellular programming, and our outer world as our perceptual of it. Information as thought that are turned into ideas produce a hologram as spatial mapping that acts to organize matter by “turning some aspects on” while turning others off, which is the same law that operates through DNA to form an organized, functioning, coherent bio-system. The mind is a translator of information that correlates it to the existing vibratory structure of the body as a form of transducer. It translates and interprets vibration as patterns into ideas as the physical correspondence or material reality of that pattern.

The Pineal absorbs vibration of the same frequency of the body through sympathetic induction. As it’s absorbed and integrated it alters the vibration as the “state” and condition of the body. The Pineal gland is what regulates our mood and natural cycles through light. Whatever mood or state we’re in forms coherence throughout the body by way of the pituitary which regulates all other endocrine glands of the body, producing hormones as chemical messengers that produce an equivalent emotional state and regulates all the biological processes of the body. Our body is equalized by the mind to be of the same state and nature as a vibratory frequency. The mind as the medium (EMF) for scalar energy serves as the vehicle or instrument for spirit as pure potential to express as form, and be able to perceive itself “as” something specific. Spirit, which acts to inform the entire material plane, forms a perception of itself by entering into relationship with itself (same vibratory idea) in everyone and everything else. It separates from itself and forms itself as another, seeing and interacting with itself as the outer reality. Scalar energy contains the potential of both a wave and a particle that forms a torsion field (EMF), which structures both the inner (body as its material core) self and the outer world of the self as correspondences of each other, which together form a coherent, consistent, and cohesive reality. We’re always acting to express a certain frequency as a life theme that we use to self-create by way of our own outer projections. We act to create the outer world at the unconscious level as an internal projection that reorganizes its basic appearance to match our beliefs about it, which then fold back on itself, stimulating us internally with our own projections, creating us at the self-conscious (self-aware) level, as a self-perpetuating, self-motivating, and self-contained system. All creation on various levels and scales is a product of the mind that’s creating it by perceiving it. We take control of our ability to self-create as our soul’s evolution by learning how to control our thoughts (instead of letting them control us), and intentionally directing our attention onto things we want to use to shape ourselves in an intentional manner. By controlling and determining our thoughts, we naturally regulate our emotional state and the chemistry of our body. We alter our vibration by “re-informing our mental paradigm” through the incorporation and synthesis of new types of information. By consciously directing our attention onto meaningful and desirable ideas, we tune ourselves energetically (spiritually) to those ideas as a frequency that allows us to resonate with that frequency, and access (resonate with) information as knowledge of the same type of ideas, reshaping ourselves through an accumulative process to produce (act as a channel for) corresponding realities as our experiences. Whatever we give our attention to and think about, we activate the corresponding idea inside of us, and we act “on ourselves” to create ourselves to be of the same nature while employing the same type of behaviors. Whatever we place our attention on and draw into our mental sphere by thinking about it, forming it into a working concept as a potential reality that we then dwell in (think about repeatedly), we act to program ourselves (subconscious mind/DNA) with that idea. We reshape our character to be an appropriate channel for that idea to express through. As we think and imagine, we become the equivalent. The very act of thinking is uniting with that idea as a seed for reality, becoming amalgamated with it, and allowing it to alter our vibration accordingly.

The Soul as the Subconscious Mind and the Holographic Nature of Reality

The mind exists as a unified being that’s dual in nature. The mind exists as a fundamental paradox that’s both local and non-local. It exists within a body and as part of the outer environment in which the body lives, and forms experiences of itself “as” a body. The primordial mind forms both the individual and the species that the individual exists as a part of. We always have the single being and the multitude as polar opposites of the same mind that creates both. The mind in its primary state exists as both the particle (individual) and the wave (the entire environment in which the individual lives) simultaneously, with the particle being but one potential contained within the wave of infinite potential. The mind of the individual is also the mind of the outer environment in which it lives and exists as being of the same nature and formed with the same characteristics.

Mass consciousness of an entire Eco-system, exists as the collective unconsciousness of a species as what we call “instinct” and automated consciousness, or tribal knowledge, as a group or universal mind, and on a smaller scale forms the collective memories of the individual. All of life, and the mind that produces and perceives it, is comprised of various types and levels of memory. Memory as a form of instinctual or automated function and behaviors, is what we create our experiences out of, that generates and produces more of the same type of memories. The law of regeneration forms the self-perpetuating evolution of the individual, the species they’re associated with, and the mass consciousness they participate in populating. Memory of the soul resonates with the genetic memory of the body, and together as a combination of shared memory, structure the body to be of the same nature as the soul which inhabits it (becomes one with it) as its vehicle for creating experiences of itself within the material realm of its own creation, developing or shaping itself through or by way of unique variations of the same basic idea.

Memory, which is inherent as the basis (structured model) for the subconscious mind, genetic characteristics of the body, and the soul, all bond together (become one and effect each other) by absorbing into each other (sympathetic induction), because they’re of the same vibratory frequency or nature, and therefore resonate with each other. The mind acts as the vehicle for the soul as the mental paradigm formed from the memories of the soul which “charge it”, organizing it into a dynamic model of interwoven and interlaced frequencies that are congruent, and together form a cohesive and consistent outer material reality, and a  material body that’s located within the outer reality. The soul as the mind, exists in duality as both the inner (particle) and the outer (wave). The mind is a living energy field of pure intelligence as accumulated memory that completely produces all aspects of the material world, that it then lives in as a way of experiencing itself as located within a specific place and time, and shapes itself by way of those experiences. The soul as the mind, follows and operates by way of the same laws on different scales and “levels of reality”. Just as we have a universal mind, we also have the collective mind of the Earth, the group mind of a tribe or community, of a family unit and bloodline, and of an individual who lives and functions within the same mind at different levels or degrees of shared consciousness.

The subconscious mind is the level of the mind we share with all of Nature, and especially of the plant and animal kingdom, which are living biological systems that grow, develop, and produce natural behaviors out of “instinct” that’s automated in nature and governed by the Sun, Moon, and heavenly bodies through cycles and natural processes conducted by invisible forces. The Earth itself is a living entity with a soul and mind (energy field as the atmosphere), as collective archetypal (universal) memory that produces and gives life to everything that lives within and by way of it. All of life on Earth is governed by the Natural Laws of the material plane, which form a direct correspondence to Universal Laws that govern the entire universe, being played out on a smaller scale and as a unique variation of life forms based on the evolutionary flow that stems from new combinations of memory and intelligence (DNA), which act together to form unique characteristics that evolve life based on unique formulas that endow it with specialized traits, tendencies, and degrees of consciousness. All of life on the material plane is produced by the soul of the Earth as its consciousness and electromagnetic energy field, which is populated with memory as the instinctual field that produces and determines all of life that is born, lives, and sustained within it. All of the plant and animal kingdom only possess the subconscious faculty of the mind, and has no will of creative ability of its own, and is governed strictly and completely by the subconscious impulses that produce natural and automatic behaviors. They are a part of a group soul and collective unconscious as the mind of the Earth, also known as the morphogenetic field of archetypal or holographic memory.

Humans are born into the Natural world with not only a subconscious mind that we share in common with all of nature through our mammalian body, but also with the “self-conscious” mind as a latent faculty that’s systematically birthed by the subconscious mind and becomes active during puberty and adolescence, but also with the “higher mind and soul” that has creative abilities through the higher faculty of the imagination and will. These higher, creative capacities give us the ability to not only self-create, but also create the “environment” in which we live and thereby create ourselves within, or as an inherent part of that environment. Humans have an individual soul while also partaking in the group soul of the family and species, and directly effects and alters the outer environment by changing how it appears to them. The outer environment of the material plane is a product of the soul or mind as consciousness that shapes it through its “perception of it”. The consciousness of the willful and creative mind, enters into a direct relationship with matter (light substance) and reorders it to match the model or patterning of the mind that’s observing it. As we place our attention on something, we literally “enter into it” energetically (in spirit), and cause it to morph and change in its appearance to match our mental model (vibratory frequency) which serves to recompose it through resonance. Because we are creative and can shape imaginary realities in our mind’s eye as holographic images, and replay memories repeatedly by dwelling in them, we create “thought-forms” which act as archetypes as a form of virtual reality, that literally “populate” and propagate through the mind field of the Earth

The mind is electromagnetic in nature, and acts to influence the outer reality to form it according to the inner reality. Through polarity, the outer is produced or recomposed as the complementary opposite of the inner or subconscious mind, which is the aspect of the mind that is also a part of the environment or informational field of Nature. We literally rearrange (change how it appears) the material substance (light) of the outer world to match our “inner world”, which is formed by the experiences we create in the outer world, which then becomes the memory as programming that makes up our “model of the world” as our energetic frequency. There’s a perpetual motion of “cause and effect” going on all the time between the inner and the outer, as well as between the universal and the individual.  Vibration structures light substance (photons as astral light) into patterns as material forms that make up what we imagine or perceive as the “outer world”, which exists as the complementary opposite of the “inner world” that’s producing it, which then acts “on it” by stimulating it internally. We first project and produce the outer world as the polar opposite of the inner world which then acts to produce the inner world as the complementary opposite of the outer, which creates a self-perpetuating system of “stimulus – response”, as vibration on a larger scale moving between poles of opposites. We’re always acting “on ourselves” through different levels and degrees of consciousness to create ourselves and our experiences of life.

The subconscious mind as the electromagnetic energy field of the body, is centered to the core of the body and flows outward in a toroidal field of alternating and rotating electric (projecting) and magnetic (attractive) impulses, that extend outward quite some distance from the body, interacting with the electromagnetic mind fields of everything else, and through resonance as interference patterns, brings out and makes prominent some aspects, while other aspects recede and fade into the background unnoticed, changing the general appearance to a specialized version as the creation of the subconscious mind creating it. Through a process of attraction (drawing out or in) and repulsion (pushing away or eliminating), we reform the material world to match and be “like us”, to be of the same nature as we are. What’s of the same nature as we are in the outer environment becomes amplified and enhanced, and what’s not becomes canceled out and ceases to exist (for us). What we call the “outer world” is the result of an interference pattern which creates a hologram, represented in Sacred Geometry as the Dyad, which is the “womb of the universe” in which all material reality emerges, first as an inner reality shaped in the imagination or mind’s eye (triad), that’s then reflected downward and outward (looked through), forming another triangle that’s diametrically opposed (polar), that together form a diamond or square, the symbol of the material world as the Tetrad. This model demonstrates how the material world is formed through an interference pattern (where it interferes with itself (same frequency) in everything else), as the outer being produced as the polar opposite of the inner. This interference pattern merges two complementary frequencies forming a new pattern (vibration) through coherence, creates a hologram as a form of virtual reality that’s similar to a dream as “reliving a memory” in the imagination.

The subconscious mind is the mind of the material plane, and is what literally produces it through the act of “perceiving it”. As we perceive, we interpret, as we interpret we rearrange it to form a new composition as a personalized version of a universal theme. The subconscious mind as the lower, materialistic, animal-mind is what forms the illusion as a dream of the outer world, and the Higher mind as the creative, self-aware mind, or human soul (the soul exists on 3 planes and levels simultaneously), is what forms the template as an archetype or memory for the subconscious mind to produce as an outer reality, then perceives and experiences itself through its own projections. What we call the self-aware mind of the body (brain consciousness) is largely unaware of the hidden aspects of the subconscious mind which is what’s producing its outer perception of reality and all of its natural behaviors within that reality. By realizing that our subconscious mind is producing our outer perception of reality, we can come to realize the hidden content of our subconscious mind because it’s what’s producing our life experiences without our direct awareness. Because of this basic lack of self-awareness on the part of the “self-aware mind” (brain consciousness or local mind), we experience the outer world as being separate from us and “happening to us” from the outside and beyond our control.

Whatever we “react to” or feel a connection with in our outer world and others, shows us our polar and complementary aspects that acts to stimulate us by vibrating us. Complementary opposites as negative (feminine) and positive (masculine) extremes of the same idea or frequency, act on each other, creating a cohesive reality as a relationship and interaction with our unknown and hidden aspects (ones we lack awareness of and don’t own or feel we have) in another. Through this interaction of complementary opposites of known and unknown aspects of ourselves, we form our experience of reality through a story we tell ourselves about it, where we play a certain role in that story, and shape ourselves by how we sense ourselves through that role, that “means” something about us, and makes us into a certain type of person. We only “become” by contrasting and relating to others and our circumstances. The personality of the subconscious mind which forms all of our natural behaviors and ways of being, while also forming our outer reality as our perception and interpretation, births and gives rise to our ego or identity which is formed as an association and relationship with itself in its environment. The ego, as our identity is one aspect of ourselves, is formed from the material world, as another aspect of ourselves. One aspect of ourselves is always acting on the other aspect of ourselves as the means of shaping ourselves by way of our own, self-produced experiences. The One, separates from itself and creates the illusion of itself as another, in order to experience itself as something specific.

Karma, as memory that forms our mental paradigm, is a product of the subconscious mind of the soul and the genetic memory of the bloodline, which are always compatible and of the same nature and frequency, and together produce our entire experience of life as a perception of reality. In this way we repeat patterns by living out of the same vibratory frequencies as dynamic patterns that literally shape our outer reality and natural behaviors, tendencies, temperament, attitude, and ultimately our identity as the role we play in our own self-made story as a perception and experience of what we call “reality”. The material world, which is comprised of particles as clusters of photons (light) held together in spinning patterns by invisible forces, is not fixed, permanently formed, or stagnate. It’s a shimmering luster of constantly changing forms that shape-shift according to the mind interacting with it into new and varied holographic patterns, creating the appearance or illusion of being solid.

All form is created by a rate and mode of vibration. All vibration exists as a frequency that’s a scale or range of vibration that resonates (acts to excite or vibrate) with the same frequency in everything else. One pattern as a frequency interacts with another pattern of the same frequency, or within near proximity of its frequency, and merge into each other through the outer field of the mind, and interfere (change by causing a reaction) with that same frequency in another, rearranging it based on shared and compatible qualities, while counteracting and subduing ones that are not shared in common. Together they form a new harmonious pattern that alters the vibration of both, forming a new vibration as a variable pattern, that’s then acted out in a dynamic fashion to co-create a shared reality through a cooperative effort that both participate in by playing a complementary role in the same story as a thematic idea. Karma is the memory created and acquired from all previous self-created experiences that serve as the basis for creating more of the same type of reality while employing the same type of perceptions, behaviors, and activities. We enter into a karmic relationship with anyone who vibrates at the same frequency, shares the same dynamic patterning, and cooperates in creating the same type of reality as a theme by playing out the behavioral dynamic of that reality as a drama or story in which both play opposite and complementary roles.

The entire material world as we know it is created, operated, and sustained as a projection and injection of the mind. Vibration organizes light as particles into clusters as a pattern or hologram (3-D pattern) that structures both the outward reality (as a field of potential) and the inward reality. All of life and energy exists in polarity as complementary opposites of the same level and degree of consciousness. This field of energy as consciousness, is electromagnetic (masculine and feminine) in nature and flows as a circular, donut shaped respiratory pattern or torus of alternating currents. Electric emanating outward, magnetic circling back around and pulling back into its center. This circular flow of energy is comprised of two interlaced spheres that rotate in opposite directions forming a spiral, which rearranges matter into the same pattern as an outer reality that’s the complementary polar opposite of the inner reality. The outer is produced by the inner, and the inner is produced by the outer, as a “stimulus-response”, where the response then becomes the stimulus, forming a perpetual motion of equilibrium that’s self-produced and sustained.

Our mind as our electromagnetic field of intelligence or formula of specialized information, only “sees” in the outer environment what’s of the same nature and likeness as itself, and remakes (organizes) it accordingly, causing it to appear a certain way. This doesn’t mean that anything not of the same vibration doesn’t exist, it simply means it recedes to the background, providing a subdued setting, which for the most part goes completely unnoticed. How things appear to us as our perception of it, forms our reality. All reality as we know it is “subjective” in nature. And while we know there is an “objective reality” as shared consciousness and Nature, we’re only truly able to experience it as subjective because we’re perceiving it through our mind which alters it through the very act of perceiving it, making us subject to it. It’s only by changing our “mind” as an alignment between our conscious and subconscious mind, which is done by “reprogramming” the subconscious, that we change our self and our experience of life.

Our outer reality is coherent with our inner reality and reflects back to us the content of our subconscious mind, which we are largely unaware of. The masculine aspect of the mind perceives and shapes itself through the outer world, which is produced and maintained by the feminine, inner aspect of the subconscious mind. The feminine subconscious mind, births the masculine self-conscious mind, and provides the outer reality through which it shapes itself by forming an image of itself as the ego, which is based on and formed out of its material existence. This is represented by the symbol of the Madonna as Mother and Son. This is one of the symbolic significance’s of Christ always being accompanied by his mother, who created, nurtured, and sustained him. Together, the feminine and the masculine form both the inner and outer world whereby they form a unified identity as a single soul or being of “one heart and mind”, also known in Alchemy as the Divine Union or Chemical (energetic) Marriage.

Intuition and Communication between Multiple Levels of the Mind

How the Higher Self Communicates with the Lower Self

The most fundamental law that permeates and governs all levels of life and reality, is the One that exists as dual in nature, as complementary opposites that form a “range of vibration” as a scale. This 3 in 1 law forms the Dyad in Sacred Geometry, and is called the womb of the universe, because all other laws as the manifestation of the material plane emerge from it as a form of birthing process or natural unfoldment. The Dyad is considered the “parent number”, and isn’t considered an actual number, with the first “real number” being 3, represented by the triad, which forms the Monad as the mind with a 3-fold nature that operates on three distinct levels simultaneously and forms a single entity that has a multi-dimensional nature.

 

This 3 in 1 as a multi-dimensional being spans all levels of creation as the 3 minds, 3 levels of consciousness, 3 bodies, 3 worlds, and the 3 dimensions of the material reality, and so on. It forms a correspondence on all levels of existence, and is therefore always true. All single entities as a working system are electromagnetic in nature and possess both feminine (inner) and masculine (outer) aspects, that act to stimulate each other (vibrate) into activity as a self-perpetuating flow of energy that forms a vibratory frequency as a movement between poles, or expansion from an inner center to an outer range as an invisible parameter, and then back again. All reality as we know it comes into existence through relationship that forms between complementary opposites as combinations that together form a new whole as a unique variation.

 

The mind exists on 3 levels as what we call the Higher-Self, and the lower-self, which has dual aspects, or the Superconscious, subconscious, and self-conscious, or the Spirit, Soul, and Body, all of which are analogies and form correspondences to each other on different levels that work together to form a whole. This is represented by the triangle where the upper single point is the Higher-Self that exists on a higher plane or parallel dimension, Who, as it descends separates into polar aspects as feminine (magnetic) and masculine (electric), which exist on the lower material plane as the material mind. While many traditional systems that deal only with the material plane don’t recognize the spiritual plane of the Higher-Mind, they all recognize the dual aspects of the subconscious and conscious minds, that together form a whole entity or cohesive inner and outer reality. The body itself is also symmetrical as right and left hemispheres of the brain, that together form a whole brain while performing different functions within the body and mind, that are complementary in nature and together form what we experience as “reality” and the “self” that lives within that reality, which is in fact self-produced, or subjective in nature.

On the material plane, the subconscious mind (feminine aspect) is the passive and receptive (magnetic) aspect of the mind, and gives birth to the self-conscious mind (masculine aspect) as the active and willful aspect that’s completely identified with the body as brain consciousness, and the outer, material environment, while remaining largely unaware of the natural functioning of the subconscious mind, which is what’s producing the outer reality as a form of “self-perception” in another, or as a cohesive and congruent outer reality that’s produced by the inner reality. The self-conscious mind is active and dominant during the alert and awake state, whereas the subconscious mind is continuously active from the moment of conception, and is what forms the body, and operates the body steadily until the body dies. The self-conscious mind, which is fully identified with the body (which it’s dependent on), is primarily aware of the outer reality which it uses to shape itself by forming an image of itself out of it (ego), dies with the body because it’s a primary function of the brain.

 

The conscious mind is the active “thinking” mind, and is what has the creative ability to make new decisions and act them out through disciplined use of the “will”. Whereas the subconscious mind is self-sustaining and operates out of memory as patterns, and simply acts to maintain established patterns as habits and routines, while simultaneously performing thousands of times more activities (all bodily function and natural behaviors) as the conscious mind, which can only focus on and think about one thing at a time. The subconscious regulates and maintains all biological processes of the body, while simultaneously projecting outward, energetically mingling with and forming the outer reality as a reflection of the inner reality. We look “through” the subconscious mind as our “perceptual lens” as a way of perceiving the outer world. The conscious mind has no real awareness of the content in the subconscious mind, which remains largely hidden from it, while being constantly revealed as an inherent part of the outer reality as the projection of the inner mind, making it “appear” a certain way (by what stands out), where the conscious mind can become aware of its own unconscious aspects through the nature of the environment in which it perceives, interprets to tell a story, and senses itself within, which acts to stimulate it (resonate with), causing a “reaction” to its unknown aspects in another.

 

In this way the outer awareness as the conscious mind can become aware of the inner contents of the subconscious through visual imagery and imaginings that come much like memories playing out in the mind as mental impressions, and through what we call coincidence that connects a string of interrelated ideas as synchronicity, or as a “bleed through” that comes as a flash of insight into something as a realization, or inspired idea that seems to come out of nowhere. Because the subconscious is passive and receptive and doesn’t challenge or resist ideas that are complementary to its current structure and can be easily shaped into a congruent reality, ideas as communication that’s meant to “guide us” (by informing and revealing) from our Higher-Self are planted in the subconscious (conceived) as a suggestion (potential reality), which it takes in and incorporates into its outer projections, which are perceived by the conscious mind. The conscious mind only becomes aware of it through its perceptions that appear to be coming from the outer reality as “signs and symbols” that spawn a thought process as a realization around something.

The subconscious mind which is the aspect of the mind that’s connected to and producing our outer perception, is what takes in an idea, as a form of seeded suggestion, and through a process of gestation, integrates it in a congruent manner, modifying its energetic structure, and then producing it in the outer environment, allowing the conscious mind to become aware of it as a part of its experience, which is then integrated through the level of identification (ego) as association with the experience it brings, altering the story the conscious mind tells about it. In this way, the Higher-Conscious is always seeding and impregnating the subconscious as a very basic way of guidance and influence that incorporates information into the outer experience as a means of perceiving it and forming a thought around it, which gives the illusion of being self-initiated or produced by the thinking-conceptualizing mind.

 

In this same way, the active self-conscious mind has the ability to also plant ideas in the subconscious mind as a way of bringing that idea into fruition as a part of its outer environment where it can experience it as part of reality. Whatever “reality” as an actual experience the subconscious mind is programmed with, it produces as an outward experience by producing the “perceptual lens” for it, the emotional state that matches it, the behaviors and actions that produce it, and connecting us to it in our immediate environment. The conscious thinking mind, which thinks in words, forms those words into pictures and the living realities they represent in the mind’s eye of the imagination, which translates them into the language of the subconscious as potential realities. As we think and imagine our thoughts as pictures, concepts, scenarios, or virtual experiences, we are literally programming our subconscious mind with those realities, which become our experience through our perception of them outwardly.

 

What we expect (and look for), creates the filter we look through, and we see the reality of our expectations by how we abstract only the elements within the outer reality that match, and reorganize (compose) them so they take on the appearance of our expectation. What we believe, we form in our mind as a reality that programs the subconscious mind with the filter as a lens that produces it as an outer experience. To control and intentionally direct our thoughts and imagination, is to consciously and deliberately create our reality. We’re always programming one aspect of ourselves with another aspect of ourselves. All outer reality is a self-created perception that simultaneously creates our perception of our “self” from our own creation, which is happening on another level that we’re not directly aware of.

Through this “chain-of-association” formed by the communication from the Higher-Self to the subconscious, to the conscious as a way of getting the conscious to align and cooperate in creating the suggestions of the Higher-Self, the illusion of choice and free will is created. Not as an actual illusion, but as an illusion as to what level its coming from, or who and what aspect of the mind is actually doing the choosing and then producing the activity that actualizes it as an outer, seemingly objective reality that’s a part from us. There’s a two way flow between the conscious aspects of the mind, both as a universal being and as a lower, individual being, connected by the subconscious aspect of the same mind (the soul) that translates and projects ideas as inner realities that form the basis for outer realities of a complementary nature, that form a subtle chain reaction of cause that produces and inward effect, that becomes the cause for producing an outward effect, that becomes the cause for stimulating an inward effect, all at different levels of the same cohesive reality. This is an automated process that functions completely without direct awareness to the mind that remains asleep to its own true nature and abilities to influence and co-create its experience of reality.

 

By waking up and becoming self-aware, and learning how to participate in our own creation by working intelligently with unconscious processes and learning how to direct our own attention onto things and ideas that we have a desire to experience, while imagining them as an actual experience within the reality that would give us that experience, we literally change the outer appearance of things and the very nature of our experiences, which act to shape our identity and who we become by way of them. The will of the conscious mind is only separate from the Will of the Higher Mind when it remains oblivious to its own hidden nature and how the different aspects of “itself” operate on different, parallel planes to form a cohesive and consistent experience of reality. In this way, we are always the one creating our experience of reality, while then identifying with our own experiences, and evolving ourselves according to our own creation. Through self-awareness of all aspects of ourselves and how they operate to form a single unified “Self” as both an inner and outer reality, we can work cooperatively with our Higher Will and participate in our own moral development to a higher level of consciousness that will ultimately transcend the lower dimensions and reside fully within the higher planes.
