The Nature of the Soul – The Kabbalah Tree of Life and the Process of Self-Creation

The Kabbalah Tree of Life provides us with a symbolic diagram for understanding the true nature of our soul and how we can consciously create ourselves through the understanding and utilization of universal laws. It’s created as a hierarchical structure of “spheres of consciousness” as “states of mind” (Monads) that move an idea in a purely potential state into an actual expression of reality by steady imposing limitations of various sorts on it as it descends from higher to lower planes that are all a dynamic and cohesive part of the same coherent reality. The human soul is represented by the central sphere (Tiphareth) that’s located on the central pillar of the Tree, and acts as the “medium” between the higher world of Archetypes as an idea in its potential (unformed) state, and the lower world of active expression where the archetype manifests as a specific entity within a reality of the same nature and with the same likeness.

Like all metaphorical ideas that are symbolic in nature and require interpretation in order to be understood, there are as many ways to interpret the Tree of Life as there are people interpreting it. And while general ideas apply as a form of overall theme that governs the nature of the interpretation itself as an intuitive form of reasoning based on the organized structure itself, the process of interpretation comes by way of a constant form of limitation that’s placed on a universal idea as adaptation to the individuals model of the world, level of esoteric knowledge, personality and identity, maturity level, and the conditions and circumstances of their life that they conform it to as a way of forming an internal representation of it as a working reality. As an idea in its potential state is brought down the planes from a universal state to a personalized expression, it’s modified by the individual mind into a new form.

All spiritual development as a higher form of consciousness (which means it’s “creative” in nature), comes through direct experience of an idea as first formed in the mind’s eye as a working concept by the individual as a form of “embodying it”, which provides the subconscious mind of the body with the means for using it to express and create as an outer reality. Higher consciousness always comes through a form of self-creating as an “individual”, whereas lower consciousness comes as a lack of individuality where spiritual doctrine is interpreted for us by another, and we simply “accept it” as gospel, so to speak, and live our life out of dogma that strips us of our true ability to create ourselves in a unique way. Our higher capacity of the mind and soul is our “creative ability” to form ourselves out of our thoughts in a unique fashion through a process of adaptation and modification. The interpretation I’m about to give is just one of many possibilities, and is not meant to take literally, but rather as the means of initiating a natural process of intuitive unfolding in your own mind. Words can never truly describe or express the nature of the divine, which can only be known through the direct (inner) experience of them, and are only approximations of an idea.

The overall Structure as a Creative Process

The first thing we want to notice is the basic structure of the Tree and how it’s laid out in terms of representing different aspects of the same principles at different “levels of creation”. The Spheres of the Tree are positioned on three pillars where the central pillar is longer and ascends to a higher level and to the lowest level as a singular or equilibrated form. The central pillar is the pillar of equilibrium, and the two side pillars represent the masculine and feminine aspect, which when brought into harmony form a functional third. All spheres, whether single or double, are positioned at different levels in a descending and ascending orientation, and represent different planes as the creative process for forming a cohesive reality as the individual expression of a universal idea. The overall Tree is formed by a series of Triads as the “One” that divides itself into complementary opposites as it descends, then brings those opposites into balance as a functional third that expresses as a combination within the lower plane as a process of solidification of an idea through various levels of transformation that alter and modify it into a new and unique form.

Universal Laws for Creating Material Reality

The most basic element in understanding universal laws and how they work to create reality comes in realizing that structure, as how information is organized into an idea as a pattern, always determines how something functions and behaves, and is what provides the means for creating a material manifestation of some kind. How a system is organized into an animated pattern gives us a kind of “formula” as a creative process that we can use for bringing an idea into expression as the physical reality of the idea. All ideas can only come into physical manifestation “through us”. They require a “mental channel” (sphere of consciousness) as a vehicle in order to express as a physical reality. The soul acts as the “medium” for calling down an idea (resonating and acting to absorb it) into the mind as a thought and imaginary idea that it then uses as a form of memory for expressing to create an experience of itself as a reality.

        The hierarchical structure of the Tree not only moves through what we can think of as seven planes of existence (which correspond to the 7 chakras of the subtle body), but also Four Worlds, which correspond to the Sacred Name of God, represented by the 4 letters of God’s name as IHVH. Each World represents a different operation in the formation and manifestation of an archetypal idea. The 4 Worlds start at the top of the Tree as the single sphere that represents the Archetypal World of ideas in their unformed (potential) state, which then undergoes a synchronized process of unfolding that ultimately acts to birth all the other spheres as its formation. It divides into polar aspects of Itself on the lower plane of Creation, as attributes and qualities necessary to form distinct characteristics, forming what’s called the “Supernal” or primary Triad that gives birth to the rest of the Triads on the Tree as a reflection and projection of itself.

Spheres 4 through 9, which form the four lower planes, is the Formative World, also known in Esoteric Sciences as the Astral-Etheric plane, where an archetypal idea is shaped by the mind of the individual soul into an actual physical reality as a unique variation of a universal idea. As it descends through various stages of formation, it forms the etheric body as the “energetic double” that provides the blueprint for producing as a physical entity and reality. The lowest sphere that’s singular in nature forms the World of Action or Manifestation as not only the physical body, but the entire outer reality of the physical body which is formed out of the same type of idea on a larger scale within the same plane.

The Tree of Life forms a hierarchical structure that moves a universal idea down into the personal realm of the soul (Astral Plane), which acts as a “medium” between the higher (pure spirit) and lower (material) planes, where it’s then used as the means for the individual soul to create itself by creating an experience of reality. The human soul, which is multidimensional in nature, uses various universal archetypes as the means of producing a “new and unique archetype” as a novel combination of universal qualities and characteristics. It takes (acts to absorb) a universal archetype as an idea of itself, and through a dynamic process of adaptation through various planes and degrees of existence, consistently modifies it into a new form of the same idea that’s bestowed with a new combination of qualities that produce unique characteristics, producing an “imaginary (inner) reality” of itself that becomes the basis for experiencing as an actual material reality. The soul “pulls an idea down” (resonates with) from the upper planes to use as the means for self-expression within the lower planes in order to create an experience of itself that it then transforms into a memory as the basis for creating itself. The soul forms itself out of various forms of integrated and assimilated memory from a unique variety of experiences that are all self-produced.

Mirroring and Reflecting

If you study the nature and structure of the Tree, you realize that as it moves in a descending manner from the upper most regions to the lower regions, it does so through a dynamic series of reflecting itself as a mirror image onto the lower plane, forming a series of Triads as energetic imprints. A mirror image is a direct reflection that’s of an opposite or polar nature to the original one that’s casting it. As we look in the mirror, we’re always seeing a reverse image of ourselves, where what appears as our right side is in reality our left side, and vice versa. We’re always seeing ourselves backwards from how everyone else sees us, and so we’re never able to “see ourselves” as we truly exist in the purely material sense.

This reveals the fact that the micro and macro are of the same nature as complementary opposites of each other on both the upper and lower planes. This same principle holds true in a linear fashion on the same plane as the inner and outer reality of the material world being of a complementary nature to each other. The same pattern forms both the upper and lower world of the soul and its material manifestation on the lower planes as the inner reality and outer experience of the same nature or idea. All are produced as a reflection and projection of the “self” on different levels and planes of existence simultaneously. This idea is represented in Sacred Geometry by the Monad (sphere of consciousness), symbolized as a dot within a sphere, where the outer reality is formed as an extension or projection of the central (inner) consciousness producing it as a perception of it. This is also symbolically represented by the “compass and square” as a 90 degree angle (L shape) that’s used by the mind in constructing the material world.

In quantum physics this is observed as the nature of light (the essence of matter as photons), which exists simultaneously as both a particle and a wave, and where two particles that are “born together” (of the same nature as a replication), that form the “appearance” of a single particle in two locations (Dyad), when separated at what seems like great distances, still continue to operate as if they’re “one”. They exist as polar opposites of each other located within the same wave-form of the material dimension as both an individual and the greater reality of that individual (Monad). Where “time and space” of the material plane exists as a “memory” created and maintained within the mind of the soul. Where an idea is absorbed and brought to life internally that forms the perceptual lens for perceiving as an outer reality of the same idea as a life theme.

Paradox and the Nature of Polarity

At the top of the Tree, a single sphere exists that acts to divide and separate from Itself as it descends into the next lower plane, forming itself as polar opposites that are complementary in nature (they act to stimulate each other into existence as an active memory).  This forms both the masculine and feminine aspects of the same idea or archetype as the spirit within a physical form. This same principle forms the basis for all of life as cellular regeneration, where the same cell forms a replication of itself as the means for self-regeneration by “dividing”, then systematically “doubling”. A single cell acts to produce all of the cells that eventually form a much greater “unified whole” as a material body that’s of a single nature. This whole material body, which appears as trillions of individual cells that have all differentiated and specialized to form all the unique and diverse working parts needed to produce a greater whole as a functioning organism, are actually the offspring of a single cell and pattern of organized- information, that together operate as a single entity, represented by the mental sphere on the central pillar of equilibrium.

Once the Supernal (Trinity) is formed in the upper plane of the Creative World as an Archetypal idea imbued with specific attributes and qualities as a “state of mind”, it “reflects itself” down into the next lower plane of Formation in a unified state on the masculine pillar of activity. As it moves from a higher plane to the next lower, it forms a zigzag movement similar to a lightning bolt that moves it from a combined state of equilibrium into an active state that reshapes, transforms, and evolves it into a new form that then reproduces on the next plane in an equalized state of harmony. As memory (archetype) is activated by directed attention as the stimulating force of consciousness, it’s drawn down into the personalized plane of the individual soul (plane of Astral Light) where it’s shaped in the mind’s eye into an actual possibility for creating as a reality. This is the sphere of Chesed, as the fourth sphere on the masculine pillar, that’s a combination of the previous three that act to birth it, that forms the first mental operation on the lower plane of Formation, as a memory formed into a possible reality in the “imagination” of the individual soul.

         It’s then shaped in the imagination as a form of universal memory that’s been specialized into a new and diverse form where it forms the inner constitution (inner nature) and all activity (outer expression) of the individual soul as a natural process of self-creation. The memory turned into an inner reality of a specialized nature, is then projected within the same plane (horizontally) as the masculine, outer aspect of the same reality. This is the mental operation as a projection of the “self” on the same plane (Sephirah (sphere) of Geburah) as the soul’s inner constitution also forming the basis for the outer reality constructed out of the same memory. The feminine of the higher plane, which is a combination as a unification of the masculine aspects, forms the masculine aspect of the lower plane as an “active state”. The imagination, which is generally considered a feminine aspect as an operation of the subconscious mind, is the active component in the lower planes of manifestation, and the masculine aspect as the perception of the outer world, normally attributed to the self-conscious mind of activity, is the passive component within the lower planes. The masculine and feminine aspects exist in polarity between the upper and lower planes, and form a fundamental paradox that’s always at play within the material world of formation.

Together, as a unique formation of archetypal memory, it returns to a unified state as it moves down into the next level (center of the Formative World of the Astral plane), and forms the basis for the “human soul” (Tiphareth) as a functional whole, which then divides from itself to form the subconscious mind of the subtle body on the lower plane (Netzach), which then separates from itself again to form the self-conscious mind (Hod) of the same plane. The Soul creates the entire lower astral realm through the faculty of the subconscious, which creates out of memory to produce both the inner and outer world of manifestation as a mental construct of itself on different scales. The subconscious then acts to birth the self-conscious aspect of the same mind as the ability to witness and experience itself through the observation of the external world produced by the projection of the internal world. Together, the subconscious and self-conscious produce a “unified whole” as the etheric body of Yesod, which acts as a blueprint for producing as a physical manifestation of both the body and its entire outer reality, all of which are all formed out of the same memory being played out on different scales simultaneously as a unified whole.

Structure and Function as the Nature of Karma

The Tree is structured out of three vertical pillars (threefold nature of the mind, soul, and reality) that sit side-by-side that forms movement as a division and unification that form a self-perpetuating and self-sustaining system of self-regeneration. The pillars form the basis for polarity as both the feminine and masculine aspects of the same plane, formed out of or returned to an equilibrated state as the basis for the next plane that issues forth from them in a synchronistic and automatic fashion as a process of spirit “becoming” material form. The masculine aspect forms the “seed” as the archetypal idea that impregnates the feminine aspect as the memory used to organize light-essence into an equivalent material form as universal memory that acts as the basis for producing the “self” as the soul and the outer reality of the soul as the experience of itself in-form. The masculine pole represents the active, outer or greater reality as a pattern that is drawn into and acts to impregnate the feminine aspect that creates it as a material form that serves as the basis for producing a virtual or universal memory.

The single sphere of consciousness at the top that initiates the process is a universal archetype (comprised of a combination of 12 aspects to form a single idea) that’s imbued with all the attributes, qualities, characteristics, and functional tendencies that form the basis of reality as the natural “story” it tells as a form of personal mythology of the soul inhabiting it. The archetype contains in its latent and potential state all the information and self-organizing forces necessary to produce a coherent and cohesive reality as the enactment of soul memory that forms “karma” as the basis for reality as the soul’s life experience through the story it naturally acts to tell through its personality played out within the conditions and circumstances of its current life situation.

The upper Triad is reflected downward into the lower plane of Astral-Light in its dual nature, which then serves to form an even lower region within the same plane as the unification of its polar aspects. This unified field as a sphere of consciousness within the lower regions of the astral field forms what we commonly think of as our “Higher Self” that’s active as intuition within the material plane, and is what serves to organize and orchestrate the entire lower plane of material reality as the basis for the souls karma (creating reality out of memory). This configuration forms what looks like an upside down triangle or Triad oriented in a downward motion. Out of this sphere emerge dual aspects into an even lower region of the same plane as the subconscious mind that will form and inhabit the material body, and give birth to the self-conscious mind as the masculine aspect of the same nature. Together, these two aspects of the mind and soul produce a unified whole as the “etheric body” that acts as the holographic template for structuring and animating the physical body of the material realm, and is reflected downward into the lower plane as a reflection of its unified state as a single sphere of consciousness.

The Fall of the Archangels to form Humanity

On the central pillar of equilibrium there are five spheres as levels of consciousness, four of which are visible as actual laws, and one invisible as the “void” or quantum leap from a higher realm of existence to a much lower realm of material manifestation. The three visible spheres (Kether, Tiphareth, and Yesod) that exist within the unmanifest, purely mental realms of organized energy as equilibrated states, are commonly referred to as the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost of the Trinity, and the manifestation of the Supernal represented by the Tetrad as the Holy name of God, comprised of four letters that are really three letters where one is repeated (IHVH).

The invisible sphere (forming the 11th sphere), which exists in-between the highest Triad and it’s reflection into the Lower regions of the Astral plane, called “Daath” (death), is symbolic of the “fall of the angels” (Archetypes as gods) to form mankind. It’s the invisible sphere of “knowledge” which only comes through “experience”. It’s the movement of the higher principles into the lower vibration of the astral plane of form, where an idea that’s “pure in nature” combines with an element of a lower plane, becoming contaminated and corrupted from its original form in order to produce a personalized version of the same idea as a unique variation.

What we think of as the Human Soul, represented by the central sphere of Tiphareth, or the “Son” of the Trinity, acts as a medium that vibrates at a frequency that’s in-between the higher and lower planes, and therefore acts as a “medium” necessary to access and “draw down” the higher consciousness of the upper plane while serving as the means for forming a personalized version by becoming the vehicle for expressing it within the lower plane of manifestation as the means of “self-creating”. The higher plane of the Supernal (upper most triad), and the lower plane of material manifestation vibrate at such different frequencies that they can’t resonate with each other, and so require a medium as a middle ground that vibrates at the lower region of the higher plane and the higher region of the lower plane so it can act as the channel or vehicle for archetypal principles to manifest as material forms of varying degrees and natures. And likewise act as the means for the memory obtained from personal manifestations to be returned to a universal state as the archetypal make-up of the soul. In the name of God represented by the Tetrad (different names of God indicate different operations), the H (which bridges together two I’s), is the second (Son as the human Soul) and the last (actual manifestation) letter of the name as the manifestation of the soul’s consciousness. All physical manifestation is of the human soul as “God made manifest”. The “I Am” as an actual entity and experience of the “Self” as an aspect of God.

Understanding your Sexual, Life-Force Energy and how to use it Creatively

Dreaming Unfortunately, the most magical part of our mind-body system has been ruthlessly slaughtered with unclean and raunchy ideas that impose a form of moral conflict and endless confusion around how to use them to significantly enhance our creativity and improve the quality of our existence, while stirring a deep fire within us required to ignite the internal combustion necessary to clean our system out and keep it running in a constant state of equilibrium and emotional harmony. Like so many things, the ideas and activities we associate to “states of being”, determine how we present them to ourselves, and how we create our experience of them when we engage in them in a completely spontaneous and natural way. In no other idea is this truer than when freely exploring our sexual nature. Not that this energy is actually “sexual” in nature, but in the sense that we can engage in it without having sex or masturbating, even though it’s the main ingredient for those activities also.   What we refer to as our Life-Force Energy that animates our body in the most ordinary sense, is also our sexual energy in the fact that it arises out of the sexual and grounding organs of the body, and has a distinct arousing, pleasurable feeling that alters our state of mind, releases tension and inhibitions, and taps into our wild, free, and expressive nature. It has an expanding, inflating, and quickening feeling fueled by beautiful and erotic sensations that drive us to a state of ecstasy and bliss. This is the energy of the spirit that moves in the body, activating it, stimulating and awakening it, that’s used to work directly with all the other energy centers of the body to bring them into balance by “blowing out” blocks, dissolving tension and energetic congestion. In order to work with the energy of the body, you have to use energy in it’s polarized state. dna transformation This is the same energy that’s referred to as the kundalini or serpent energy, which can be intentionally used by drawing it up to activate the other energy centers of the body through the nervous system of the spine in order to unite it with the higher energy centers of the third-eye, or imagination, to produce an incredibly enhanced and heightened form of creativity. When this arousing sensation that expands, quickens, and forms intense pleasure is united with thought and inner vision, we connect to our higher self through an altered state that’s very dynamic and expressive. We turn the body into a creative vessel for the spirit, which is ultimately mental and creative in nature.   Like all energies and natural forces, the Life-Force energy exist in a dual state of masculine and feminine, passive and active, and work together in a complementary fashion by rendering the body (feminine) passive, so the active energy (masculine) can move into and through it with no resistance, as a unified, graceful, and excited gesture. And of course, the reverse can also be true, where the body can become the active force that renders the mental force passive, and acts to control the soul’s will for the pursuit of purely physical pleasures. Our physical passions of lust can control our will as thoughts and desire, and the spirit can become the servant of the body’s primal instincts and be used instead to engage in promiscuous sexual behaviors and erotic fantasizing. The very energetic system that creates the artistic genius and god, can also create the twisted pervert and evil, regulated and determined by the soul employing it, and whether or not it’s being used intentionally and with purpose, or unconsciously through compulsive tendencies.   This same energy, which ignites matter and the Astral Light of the imagination, if not directed and used properly, can cause overwhelming anxiety and drive people mad (literally). This is largely due to the fact that it’s experienced as an intense emotion that rapidly expands giving us a feeling of being overwhelm while trying to hold it in our body, and the feeling that we’re going to explode, which is the arousing, growth nature of this energy that expands matter to create active life forms. This active, animated, expanding quality is what grows cells by regenerating and multiplying them, and animates the dormant information contained in a seed, stimulating it to grow and develop into a living form. kundalini When activated in our body it has a rushing, building up, and exploding with intense pleasure sensation that’s also experienced as an orgasm. It’s the same principle of love that operates as the sexual union of the masculine with the feminine, force with form, which fuses them together through a state of erotic intensity and insurmountable ecstasy that drives them out of their mind with intense pleasure, achieved only through their union. At the moment of an orgasm, we lose all sense of ourselves as being separate from our lover and what’s “lighting us up”, and go temporarily insane with sheer pleasure that we can’t contain within us, and so we have to let it go, and allow it to move through us by surrendering control and letting it have its way with us. We give ourselves to it. By freeing it to move through us, we free ourselves from all the trapped energy we’ve held in our bodies. It literally blows our mind, clearing our head, while relaxing our heart. We remove all blocked energy as psychological tension that acted as an inhibition to our own freedom. The more we move and release, the better we feel. We become completely present and intimate with it inside of us, and we enter into it with complete abandon, and relish in its erotic movement that delight and enliven every cell in our body.   In much the same way, this energy can be used to heal the body by producing the pressure necessary to remove blocks and congestion caused by tension and emotional suppression. Whatever emotion (energy) we hold in and don’t allow to freely move through us by expressing it, creates tension in our body as the means of holding it back, and creates blocked energy that forms psychological problems as the internalization of the suppressed emotion. From a purely psychological perspective, all our “issues” stem from denial or suppression of strong emotions, that we form imaginary realities around that are a form of delusion. In this way, negative emotions that are experienced as pain are married to our thoughts, and we develop complexes where our thoughts deliver more of the same pain. We act on ourselves to produce our own suffering. Whatever emotion becomes associated to a thought as a way of trying to hold it inside by trying to express it internally instead of externally, creates a energetic block in our body which inhibits our ability to express freely, robs us of vitality by depleting our energy supply, reduces our ability to experience pleasure, and eventually manifests as a physical malady.   By igniting our Life-Force energy, and drawing it up, into, and through us, uniting it with our thoughts and imaginings, acts to grow those thoughts through the pleasurable quality that demands expression as a sense of enthusiasm and excitement. It produces passionate thinking that inspires a sense of wonder and awe. It creates a feeling of fascination and magic around what was previously ordinary things. Our thinking becomes the vehicle for expressing the feeling which increases and reproduces it. The thoughts that come from a feeling of bliss and ecstasy, render ordinary things beautiful, and give us more of the same feeling when we think about them. When we allow positive and euphoric energy to exist in us and animate our thoughts with the same quality, we become a channel for the outward expression of that feeling, and we stimulate the same feeling through how we express it in others. This energy creates a feeling of inner joy, happiness, and exuberance. Notice that when you feel really good, you want to sing and dance, yell and play. It makes you active and expressive. You want to move the feeling that’s swelling inside of you outside of you. soul energy This creative Life-Force that’s sexually arousing is the foundation of all creative genius. This quality of consciousness brings ideas to life within the imagination. It’s through this life giving excitable energy that ideas come alive in us, and begin growing and evolving into numerous variations and possibilities through a kind of dynamic unfolding process. We can hold an idea in our mind, concentrate our attention on it, and it’ll become animated, and begin growing, expanding, and joyously “becoming” on its own. This is the way we “receive” ideas from out of the ether as knowledge that didn’t come from memory, but rather unfolds, revealing itself to us, while we act as the passive receptor for it to show itself to us. When we are actively thinking on our own, we render the spiritual force passive, and we only “see” in an idea more of what we already know through the memory we’ve built around it. We can’t grow or “invent” knowledge, but simply run through a repetition of what’s already been done. By becoming passive, stilling our thoughts and releasing our attachments and beliefs around an idea, and simply choosing the idea to focus on while allowing the active force to come alive in us and begin animating the idea itself, we “receive” knowledge by witnessing it as it unfolds before us in our imagination, and we have the experience of being “given” knowledge or ideas instead of producing them. This is the very foundation and secret of all creativity and invention. They’re ideas that “come to us” out of nowhere, initiated by an intense focus and a desire to know about them. This desire to know is a form of curiosity and innocence, where we draw ideas into us with a sense of anticipation and discovery, and we simply observe them as they come alive in us.   Self expression as emotion (energy), thought (form), and activity are the key to health, happiness, and creativity. By intentionally stirring this energy in us through a desire for it, and mentally drawing it up into us, allowing it to fill, animate, and “run us”, we remove all energetic blocks, emotional tension, and psychological complexes by flushing them out while in an excited state. We surrender to it, give ourselves fully to it without any resistance and through a joyful cooperation allow it to dance us, move us, think us, and “be” us. In doing this, we enter into proper relationship with spirit through our body as the Divine marriage, consecrated only through love and sexual ecstasy as the energy that fuses them together in a state of eternal joy where they move as one. We use our body in a passive state to become the channel for spirit to express in a state of pure joy and uncontained excitement that’s innocent and spontaneous. Movement that’s natural, immediate, and fluent. An expression that’s graceful, passionate, and eloquently alive, whose touch makes our heart skip a beat and leaves us reaching for more!   Dr. Linda Gadbois   Evolutionary Relationships & Sacred Sexuality Transformational Coaching Spiritual Sciences Mind / Body Integration   About the author: Dr. Linda is a Spiritual Scientist and scholar of Hermetic Sciences and Ancient Wisdom traditions.

A New Way of Thinking and Perceiving – Everything is Conscious Energy

Matter is Various Forms of Consciousness

touching
How we look at things and the model we view them through as a means of attempting to understand them, determines what we see as a result. By looking at the world with new eyes, we experience everything in a brand new way. In order to find the secrets of the universe, we have to learn to perceive it in its most primal form, the form of energy. What is typically referred to as “secret sciences” or occult knowledge, is the scientific and intuitive awareness of the invisible, energetic realm of pure consciousness going on around us, in us, and through us all the time. Everything in the universe consists of vibration. Every element of the material world, whether organic or inorganic, vibrates at at different rates and modes of consciousness. Every subatomic particle that makes up what we experience as the phenomenal world exists as primarily empty or invisible space that displays psychic mind-like properties. These psychic particles are always interacting and exchanging energy as consciousness while morphing and intimately responding to all other particles. These psychic and mind-like qualities are aspects of consciousness that give it the physical attributes and characteristics it takes on. As it exchanges and acquires new forms of consciousness, it morphs into the shape equivalent to that conscious state as a new vibration.

 
The universe as we know it, is made up of different levels of consciousness, separated out and distinguished by different levels, frequencies and degrees of consciousness. The rate and mode of vibration form the state out of which an object is formed and animated through natural behaviors of that state and form. Organic living forms are active through natural growth processes and display specific behaviors based on its vibratory state as its energetic and material constitution which are always equivalent to each other. The material world exists in kingdoms as a natural categorization of levels of consciousness shaped by the elements; known primarily as the mineral, plant, animal, and human kingdoms. While the degree of consciousness varies between the kingdoms of the material world, they all possess the same “type” of consciousness in various formulas, and are in a constant form of interaction as an exchange of energy at the subconscious level. Each element of the subatomic chart that makes up the basic composition of the physical world consists of energy at different rates and modes of vibration.

structure

Every material object also possesses or is accompanied by an energy field or energetic double, commonly referred to as its etheric body. This etheric energy field as what we could call its mind or soul, provides a kind of spatial mapping for the physical structure the form takes on at the molecular level of generation and regeneration. While DNA provides the basic information as sequences that make up the cellular intelligence that’s used to form it by regenerating material substance out of nothing, fabricating the substance of an entire body through a growth process, the etheric body or energetic double provides the 3-D mapping as the spatial structure the cells develop into through a series of specializations. While the outer form it takes on may differ, the energy that shapes it, gives it its unique properties, and hold it together, is the same energy that permeates and gives rise to all living things as a primordial form of consciousness. What separates objects into distinct categories based on the characteristics and activity levels is their vibratory frequency and degree of consciousness which range between passive and inactive states, to highly active and interactive states. The more active something is the higher its degree of consciousness, the more comprehensive, complex, and sophisticated its actions are, the higher degree of intelligence it possesses. Consciousness, intelligence, information, subtle energy and vibration are synonymous terms.

 
By realizing the basic nature of everything as varying degrees of consciousness, or an orchestration of vibratory frequencies all interlaced and interactively exchanging energy, we can begin realizing that the world around us is alive and always in the process of interacting with and responding to our consciousness, meaning, its responding to our feelings, emotions, thoughts, and imaginings. Our awareness of this basic realm of pure energy that underlies and gives rise to everything is the basis of intuition. We experience the energetic conscious world as the invisible realm that underlies the material realm through the intuitive faculty of the mind, which everybody has and are using all the time at the unconscious level. Whatever emotions we’re experiencing and thoughts we’re thinking connect with those same emotions and thoughts as a quality of consciousness in everything around us. As we connect to them by resonating with them, they stand out, become illuminated or highlighted, we notice them above everything else, think about them, and they act to accentuate or promote whatever mood we’re in by becoming the reality of that mood in realization.

When we look out over a large expansive area or greater reality, we only notice in that scene whatever matches us in mood, feelings, emotion, thought and actions. As we notice certain elements within a whole, we abstract them, place our attention on them and develop them into a new whole in order to create our experience of them as a representation of the greater whole we abstracted them from. Whatever is of a different vibration or quality of consciousness as a “state of being” than we are, fade into the background, and we don’t notice or think about them in the direct sense. Our attention is the active force of our consciousness that’s directed only into what matches it or can be used to recreate a reality as a representation of our mental model that we use to interpret the world around us, whether it’s in its active or passive aspect.

 
This realization of a conscious universe that’s alive and interactive through relationships is the foundation for our intuitive perception as our spiritual or energetic eyes. Once we realize that all of life and everything in our immediate awareness is responding to us, based on how we’re feeling and what we’re thinking about, we can come to understand how questions and answers are directly associated, and how by asking questions or contemplating an idea, we connect to the answer as being of the same reality as the question all around us, and the answers come to us synchronistically through signs, messages, events, and direct contact in the people and things around us. We have only to realize this and begin making it a practice to be present in our everyday life while paying attention to notions, urges, indirect associations, feelings we get about something for no apparent reason, coincidences and outright answers that come mysteriously out of the blue, in the most ordinary and unexpected ways. Whatever we concentrate on internally, starts talking to us externally.

tuning in

When we begin seeing all of life as conscious beings and entities, it changes how we experience the world, and changes the relationship we form with it. When we realize that every living thing is a conscious being affected by our very thoughts, emotions, and actions towards it, that’s always interacting, communicating, and responding to us, it changes how we see and experience ourselves as conscious beings. When we realize that at the very moment we ask questions, we automatically begin connecting to the answer in the space around us, and it starts coming to us through the elements of our environment, life takes on a magical quality. We then begin realizing that intuitive notions are designed to guide us. When something stands out and we don’t know why for sure, yet we immediately make an association to why it’s standing out, it comes as a connection to something we’ve been thinking about, contemplating or wondering about, and is designed to lead us through further investigation into its significance, or by giving us more information about an idea.

 
Once we become aware of the conscious nature of things, we become much more aware of ourselves and the importance of our role in everything. We begin connecting with everything in a new way while seeing a whole new side to things. We begin realizing the affects of not only our behaviors, but of our very thoughts and feelings which ultimately serve to motivate our behaviors, and the fact that even when we don’t act on our feelings and thoughts, we promote, influence, and produce the same subtle effect with only our thoughts and emotions. Our emotions and the thoughts connected to them are what connect us intimately to everything else.

 
In the energetic realm of pure consciousness, thoughts are things. Thoughts are energetic forms that enter into, penetrate, and affect everything around us. We begin realizing that we are intimately connected through various subtleties to everything else. That everything is affecting us with its consciousness through a spontaneous energy exchange. That we are in fact solely responsible for our own consciousness and the affects we produce, which are largely unconscious in nature. We begin realizing that by waking up and becoming aware of what’s happening silently and invisibly all around us, we can begin not only directing ourselves, but determine how we influence everything else. We can begin viewing ourselves from an expanded perspective and see ourselves objectively as a part of a greater idea being played out all around us of which we play an important part. We can begin taking responsibility for who we are and how we’re being in even the most ordinary sense. We can begin intimately connecting to others, to animals, plants, trees, sunsets, mountains, the ocean, in a whole new way, falling in love, and becoming it’s caretaker and protector. We can influence things with love and adoration, with feelings of reverence and respect, that acts to “bring out in it” and in us, what warrants those feelings as a reality. What we do unto others, we simultaneously do to ourselves, because what connects us isn’t the outer physical reality, but the underlying invisible reality as our “shared” quality of consciousness, out of which feelings, thoughts, emotions, and actions naturally propagate as their offspring.

Principle of Vibration – How Vibration becomes Reality

heaven
While many of us have seen how vibration as sound creates geometric patterns in elements like water and sand, many don’t fully realize how something as seemingly complex as reality is created by way of the very same vibratory frequencies. One way to understand this is by understanding the difference between a vibration and a frequency, or “range of vibration”. As well as the fundamental principle that governs the behavior of energy as resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. While vibration forms distinct patterns in the elements of the physical plane of material substances, it also forms patterns on the plane of light as photons, which we experience as the ghost-like substance that shapes ideas into images and living realities in our imagination, which is the formative and reality generating aspect of the mind. Vibration forms any matter or surreal substance into patterns as shapes, ideas, or objects. A cluster of vibrations or interlaced sequence of vibratory frequencies creates an array of images and interrelated ideas as a cohesive and greater reality of a multitude of patterns.

 
Vibration is the very foundation as the primordial energy of consciousness that permeates and creates on all levels of existence simultaneously as a dynamic series of interrelated correspondences and analogies. A frequency as a range of vibration clusters together similar vibrations that form a class, kind, type, or species, as the nature of the form that emerges as the expression or offspring of the vibration. Frequencies form a classification as a family or kind, that all share the same basic group of characteristics and a similar personality or behaviors. Form always determines function, and anything with similar physical characteristics or properties also function and behave in a similar fashion. All laws and principles in general are classified and represented by form as a geometric shape that gives it attributes and properties in certain measurement and proportion that naturally produce specific behaviors, functions, or operations. So the behavior and nature of someone reveals their vibratory frequency.

electric neurons

In all of Nature and the Cosmos as we know it, nothing is at rest, everything moves, everything vibrates. The differing manifestations of matter, which in its most primary form is photons as light or essence, is energy, mind, and spirit, all of which result from varying rates of vibration. The scale ranging from pure spirit and the subtlest energy down to the densest material object is vibrating at a specific rate (speed). The greater it’s vibratory rate the higher its position on the scale from high (invisible or translucent) to low (solid) manifestation. Spirit and matter are different degrees or extremes of the same thing. Matter itself does not contain consciousness or energy outside of what it draws into it from its environment through the invisible space around it. The subtle energy as consciousness is what either organizes or changes matter forming a unified body through a form of coagulation, or activates a growth process that manufactures matter as a regenerative process.

 
While lower life forms vibrate at a specific rate based on their kingdom, species, or kind, humans have a higher capacity of consciousness as creativity and can tune themselves to vibratory frequencies by how they use their minds to draw into them vibration as qualities of consciousness through their power of will and imagination and their ability to willfully direct their attention and form intentional thoughts as imagined ideas. The mind has the ability to direct and influence matter through its ability to shape astral light into thought forms that introduce a specific vibration that modifies the overall system as a correlation of corresponding vibrations of the same kind of reality. Our mental state is how we act to modify our physical state. Our mental state produces realities as the pattern or idea inherent in the state as a frequency.

activity

The differences between various manifestations are due to varying rate and mode of vibration. Vibration is created by the movement between poles of opposites, where spirit is at one end and matter is at the other. Between these two poles are millions and millions of different rates and modes of vibration. All energy and matter are but modes of vibration and the mind is likewise, a field of energy as a mode of vibration or “state” that shapes and effects matter with that same vibration and quality of consciousness. While the rate of vibration may be seen as the form matter takes on, the “mode” imbues it with a form of personality. The mind is a form of subtle energy that’s formed from the Ether, which is what we call the universal mind in which all vibration exists in a state of pure potential (ideas not yet formed), and can be drawn on by any material form through the mind which inhabits that form, that’s of the same vibratory frequency through resonant induction.

 
A potential idea is a seed for a possible reality that’s drawn into the individual mind which naturally acts to modify the vibration of the idea by adapting it to the model of the mind, while simultaneously influencing the matter of the body, which is always a direct correspondence to the mind or soul that inhabits and animates it. As these vibrations of pure potential, not yet brought into form are introduced into the human mind, they’re shaped into concepts as imagined forms and possible realities. Every vibration as a pattern is an objective idea that provides the seed for producing a reality based on how its shaped in the mind of the individual conceiving it, and though it’s shaped into a unique variation of that idea, it holds true to that idea as one of millions of possibilities for creating that idea as a living reality that can be experienced in sensory terms.

sacred_geometry_i_by_phaedris-d55ig4y

The pattern as a self-organizing structure inherent in the vibration, while forming geometric patterns when sound vibration is used, in its silent form, when received by the higher intelligence of the human mind, it forms light-essence into a pattern as an idea for creating a reality as a personal creation. It shapes the vibration as an idea into a light form as an internal representation of an outer material reality, or phenomena. How it’s shaped or grown in the individual mind is based on the current frequency of that mind, which also has a distinct personality to it, and determines how it’s reformed as a unique variation. So while we all have the ability to tune into and draw into us ideas from this unified field of mass or universal consciousness, we’re only capable of drawing into us what’s of the same frequency or within close range of our frequency, and reshape it to match or correspond to our overall frequency as a theme, that personalizes it.

 
We can also intentionally use our mind to tune into a certain frequency by how we think and what type of ideas we focus on and contemplate, and use to form internal realities by how we imagine them. This energy which exists in polarity of positive and negative aspects as degrees between two extremes of the same quality, can be used to tune us to a higher frequency by consistently focusing on and thinking about positive, constructive, and beneficial ideas, that build up our frequency, increasing our vibration and what we’re able to conceive of and draw into us as a channel for the expression of the reality inherent in the vibration. As we increase our thoughts to a positive higher vibration, until they become natural and normal, or what we think about in a routine sense, we move ourselves along an invisible scale from lower to higher vibrations increasing our frequency and what we’re capable of acting as the channel for bringing into the world as a corresponding reality.

entity

The way a vibration becomes a reality as the pattern or formative force inherent in it, is through the faculty of the imagination as the three-dimensional thoughts that birth the pattern by shaping astral light into a thought-form. Our imagined thoughts are also the natural means for tuning ourselves to a higher vibration by directing our attention and purposely contemplating certain ideas as our general thoughts while simultaneously removing our attention from other types of thinking and imagining that are either petty and meaningless, or outright destructible and harmful, either to ourselves or to others. Our will is our thinking. Whatever we think about we will by bringing into form, first through the thoughts themselves by imagining them, and forming internal dialogue around them, then by speaking and communicating through them, while forming a belief around them. Anything we can imagine as real is also believable.

 

 

Key Points:
• Vibration is a pattern that’s created through a self-organizing field that forms and holds matter into place as the pattern inherent in the vibration.
• Vibration as a pattern forms a series of correspondences based on the plane it manifests on.
• A physical vibration produced by sound, structures elements into geometric shapes that form composite images as a frequency or cluster of vibrations.
• Vibration on the mental plane comes as an idea that shapes a living reality in the imagination of the person conceiving it.
• The imagination converts mental energy as objective universal ideas into possible realities by shaping the essence of matter as light into possible realities as an inner experience.
• These light-forms of the imagination provide a template for creating a corresponding reality by driving the behavior of the person imagining it who acts as the channel or vehicle for that vibration to become an actual physical manifestation.
• Vibration forms a state of mind which produces spontaneous thoughts and emotions that have potential realities inherent in them.
• We act as a receptor for whatever vibrations-thoughts-emotions that is of the same nature or frequency as our overall vibration through resonance.
• We can tell what our frequency is at any given moment by how we feel, what mood we’re in, and what we think about as a general rule, and we can also tune ourselves to a higher frequency by controlling and directing our attention into specific ideas that are of a beneficial nature in a constant and consistent manner.

Imagination – “As Opposed to Creative Visualization”

eye
The tendency to represent the idea of “imagining something” as “visualizing it”, can make the idea seem fairly confusing. Visualizing indicates forming inner images, pictures and scenes as movies that play out in the mind as a form of anticipated or wished for experience. Then, because its portrayed this way, many get confused as to “how to” visualize, what it means exactly, and believe that it means to see fully detailed, colored images and scenes that play out with precision and detail, and while it certainly can be this way, especially for a well developed imagination, for most people it’s usually much more impressionistic. Most visualization resembles the type of image we see as a reflection in glass or water, or a reflection in a dark, shiny surface where it’s more shadow-like and formed, yet not particularly detailed. This resembles what is referred to as “thought-forms” that exist in the astral field of the mind as shadowy images that we form through thinking about or dwelling on ideas, or recalling a memory of some kind.

 
The imagination however, is a faculty of the mind that forms a full sensory experience that while it’s main component is visual images and impressionistic shapes, it also focuses heavily on hearing and sounds, feelings as intuitive and as touching the surface of material reality, any forms of smells that would be inherent in the experience, and taste whenever appropriate, as well as the internal dialogue as thoughts that we naturally have while engaging in any type of experience and the emotions the experience elicits. Our inner dialogue is what we are telling ourselves ‘about’ the experience that makes it mean something. The imagination takes an inspired idea as unformed, and shapes it into a full 3-D sensory reality that is realistic and believable, and therefore possible. The true use of the imagination however, places the greatest emphasis on “feelings” that we have as a result of the inner experience we are having. The feeling is the full-body intuitive sensation that blends the visual into a holistic experience as a form of memory that is complete with emotions, thoughts and meaning that brings realization around an idea that can only be obtained through the experience of it. This reality formed in the imagination through thinking, creates a form of template that makes us a channel for the imagined idea to become a reality as an outer expression that’s a correspondence to the inner experience.

lost in space

This is the creative power of the mind to create experience by first creating it internally while shaping it with sensory detail and definition that sets the vibratory patterning that attracts and organizes the outer experience as a correspondence. The outer experience is not exact to the imagined one, although it can be, but is rather analogous to the inner experience. It’s of the same nature and theme as the internal experience, yet modified according to the elements available in the immediate surroundings, and the will, personality and interactive quality of those participating in the orchestration of the outer experience. Because the outer requires other people, situations and events, the original vision is modified accordingly as a basic requirement to incorporate the ideas and desires of all who partake in the over-all experience that is co-created as a shared reality.

 
This is why the emphasis is always placed on the “feeling” of the experience rather than the visual aspect. Visually it may be entirely different than you imagined it, yet it will feel the same. It’ll be the same type of idea as a form of theme, which is being illustrated in a modified and varied manner. The feeling, as the vibratory frequency is what composes and structures the experience to be of a certain patterning that beautifully conforms to the influences that everyone participating contributes, while maintaining the same basic idea as the essence of the over-all experience. You will recognize the fulfillment of your wish, not by what it looks like, but by what it feels like as you realize you’re in the process of having it.

Alchemy of Consciousness – Light is the Essence of All Creation

Starstuff
What has historically been referred to as Alchemy, isn’t the transmutation of ordinary metals to gold in the most obvious sense, but this process forms the analogy that represents the same fundamental laws that are at work in all forms of “transformation and evolution”. The process being communicated through this analogy represents the process of personal transformation as spiritual enlightenment. It’s referring to the transmutation of the body using the higher-mind of pure light. This is not “light” as many have come to know it, but light as consciousness itself that forms and organizes matter into patterns while simultaneously animating them with a kind of personality.

 
The very essence of all matter in the most fundamental sense is photons, which is light. Everything exists as an “interference pattern” (Dyad) created between “observer” and what’s being “observed”. The observing mind perceives matter as its own interpretation of it by “mingling” with it, and re-organizing it to be of the same basic nature (programming as patterning) as the mind itself. It doesn’t change matter as a neutral and objective fact that’s “a part from” the observer, but rather changes how it appears (or reappears) in the mind of the person perceiving it, which conforms it to the same basic patterning as the “meaning” it gives it through the nature of its interpretation as a means of experiencing it. For this reason, the transformation is referred to as changing how ordinary minerals appear, making them appear to be gold. When the mind of the individual changes, how the world outside of them changes correspondingly.

 
The meaning we give things, which we use as the means of interpreting it, determines how we “see it”. How it appears to us. Attention is an active self-organizing field, and whatever we place our attention on, we act “on it” to reorganize it to fit or match our organization as a pattern or composition of meaning and significance. This is done through a “filtering mechanism” that activates and deactivates, pulls some things out into the foreground, while pushing others aspects into the background where they’re not noticed or used to form an interpretation as a personal perception. This reorganizing mechanism as a reformulation of matter as light, happens automatically in a systematic fashion through resonance. Our field of attention is a projection and extension of our own mind that “turns on” (vibrates) certain aspects that correlate (resonate) with it, while “turning off” what doesn’t. Then, out of a fragmented, new selection of inherent information organized into a new pattern that conveys meaning (same as the mind is programmed with), it experiences it as a natural part of it’s “story about things” in a way that makes sense and acts to support and validate its story. All interpretations are a fundamental form of self-expression that reshapes everything into our “image and with our likeness”.

Dreaming

All energy as consciousness is comprised of active and passive forces. Our mind is an active force that enters into the passive aspect of everyone and everything around us (matter) and activates in it the same qualities that are in us, impregnating it, giving rise to an offspring of our model as a fractal pattern or holographic image. This is done not in literal terms of changing the object itself, but as a perception that forms a new image as a reflection of itself in another. Resonance is the basic law governing consciousness as “perception”. All perception of the outer world is a form of self-perception as projection of the inner onto the outer. We project our image (paradigm) onto them, and reshape them to be “like us”, and we experience them through the same qualities that we ourselves naturally possess. We change how things appear (to us) by the model and perceptual lens we use to look at it through. We can only see what can be explained, described, given values and attributes, or validated and justified using our model. Everything in the outer world that exists “outside of our model”, is unperceivable to us. We literally can’t see it, even though we’re looking right at it.

 
Alchemy, works by changing the “inner substance” as the mind-body system of the individual, rather than changing outer substances. It doesn’t change the actual substance of someone or the outer world of matter, but how it “appears” to the individual changes. It works by changing the mind as the “model of meaning” which is being used to perceive things that changes their appearance to match the model. By changing our vibratory frequency as the self-organizing system based on meaning, we change the structure of our mind as our paradigm or “model of the world”, which modifies our perceptual lens – that we look through and perceive everything with – and as a result, things appear different to us. We can see in things what we didn’t notice before. We see ordinary things in a brand new light. We see everything from a brand new perspective, and through a brand new attitude. Not because it has actually changed, but because we’ve changed. We have changed our form and structure as the patterning of our mind, which is the “invisible” aspect of ourselves that has the ability to shape and reshape matter based on how it observes it and energetically interacts with it.

traveler

Our attention is a field of energy that’s an active force as a self-organizing mechanism that enters into and directly affects matter by changing how it appears to us – to the mind interacting with it. In this way, the observer and the object being observed are not separate from each other, but are an interactive whole. Whatever we look at and consider, we enter into relationship with, blending with it energetically and restructuring it to appear to us the way we need it to in order to match our story about things. Everything around us is perceived as an image that’s reflected on a glass-like screen in the mind’s eye of the imagination, and becomes a transparent image that’s superimposed over the outer reality, where the outer is transformed to correspond with the vibratory patterning of the mind. An active force (directed attention) enters into the same passive force in everything around it, bringing it to life, and their integration forms a new version of both as a perception of reality as the “self” being perceived in another.

 
Once we understand this, we can use it as a tool of self-discovery that reveals to us aspects of ourselves that normally lie outside of our awareness. We can realize that how we judge others in terms of what we tell ourselves about them as an interpretation of their behaviors or what they’re saying, has nothing to do with the person themselves in terms of honestly seeing who they are as a person, but rather shows us what our criteria for judgment is and our “story about things” where we evaluate everyone to fit into and play a role in our story. We look at others in their behavior and how they’re being, and we say to ourselves . . . when they do this, it means that. When they say this, it means this about them. When they act this way, it means this. And so on. Usually without ever realizing that the reason for their behaviors may not have anything to do with what we think they mean, but rather are being expressed out of a completely different model than ours, one that we don’t have an accurate interpretation for. Yet, by recognizing this, we can begin to observe ourselves from a neutral and objective perspective where we can see what our own tendencies are. We can see what story it is as a theme that conveys meaning of some sort that we’re always in the process of telling ourselves and as the means for creating a consistent interpretation of everything around in order to understand it and know how to interact with it.

 
By recognizing our perceptions as a window to ourselves, we can bring into light what normally remains outside of our awareness. We can see what our own paradigm is that contains hidden aspects of ourselves that we’re not aware of because we’ve repressed them or are in denial about them, because when we expressed are true nature, we were harshly judged by others, and so we disowned them by denying them, even to ourselves, and began judging those same traits in other people in the same way we were judged. Because of this, we can recognize our own judgments of others as being about the same things we were judged for, which produced hidden aspects of ourselves that we pretend we don’t have. Once we realize that whatever we’re seeing in another is the same traits we ourselves possess, we can become aware of parts of ourselves that we’re not normally aware of. In becoming aware of them, and allowing ourselves to “own them” without judging, explaining why we have them, or attempting to justify them and our right to keep them, we integrate them into our mind, bringing them into balance within the rest of our personality, and quit “seeing it” in others. In this way, people appear different to us, because we ourselves are different, not so much in how we appear, but in how we think, feel, perceive, emote, and behave. The “being” inside the body changes how the mind and body functions, and through resonance, our outer perception of the world changes to match our inner perceptions.

Personal Transformation from your Lower-Self to your Higher-Self: “Striving for Self-Perfection”

Transcendence
The idea of perfection has been greatly misconstrued, and has even in some cases been turned into a “bad” idea by some who use it in more of the sense of standards being placed “on us” by others, trying to live up to their ideas about us or please them in some way by changing our behaviors in order to win their favor and affections, or in an attempt to remedy the idea of “worthiness” by telling you you’re perfect just the way you are, and you need not do anything to be worthy of “God’s love”. All these concepts are built out of the idea that perfection has something to do with “someone out there” (others or God) that’s placing standards on you that have to be met in order to be considered perfect, and therefore worthy of their love and generosity, or to be included in their private circle. Yet, none of these have anything to do with the real idea behind “self-perfection”.

 
To be perfect is to be utilizing all off your talents, latent potential, inner qualities, knowledge, special abilities, and untapped inner resources to willfully modify and adjust, or rearrange your mental paradigm as your perceptual lens that identifies errors in your perception and dynamics you’re programmed with that are destructive, harmful, unproductive, sabotaging, and cause you misery and suffering somehow by way of your own tendencies. Perfection can also be thought of as creating an “ideal” for yourself that’s what you deem to be “the best you can be”, that create a life experience of being empowered in your ability to actively create it through mastering your will, and where you are fulfilled in the most ordinary sense, and able to productively create in your life in a way that creates health, happiness, and prosperity. Not by obsessively trying to change others so you’ll be alright to stay just as you are, but by working exclusively on yourself to recognize and address your own character flaws, false perceptions, and unconscious tendencies. All of which are acting together to cause you to express in a negative way producing your own suffering.

venturi manSelf-perfection is to look within, and through introspection (examining yourself), see what type of story you’re always in the process of living out, and what role you’re playing in that story that shapes you by way of it. We always start with a paradigm structured out of our accumulated experiences that are all interpreted through the same type of story-line, forming a consistent experience of our outer reality and the events of our life that are “produced by” our perception, then used to create our experience, which shapes and defines us by way of them. We are at once the author of the story being told by how we interpret everything, the main character in our story that everything revolves around having the experience of it as an actual reality, while watching it being played out as a reflection in others. We are the central point out of which our world evolves and is held into place forming a consistent pattern as a theme that forms the basis for all our experiences. We’re always the one causing our own suffering, emotional pain and unhappiness, by how we process information and what dynamics we naturally engage in and cooperatively participate in acting it out as a group scenario.

 
We are always the ones creating our own experiences. We have only to begin recognizing this while cultivating the ability to look at ourselves from an objective perspective so we can see our own tendencies and patterns without an emotional investment or need to justify it by how we explain it. When we can remove our attachments to our perceptions, and step outside of the emotional element that the story acts to express and create more of, and look at the story we’re living out from a dissociated position, we can begin “seeing” ourselves as we really are. It’s the emotional component that causes us to become unconscious of our own behaviors. It’s the emotion controlling our thoughts that “forms” the story we begin living out of. Emotions become the motivation for all our behaviors. Emotions are “energy in motion” that produces activity that controls our thoughts to form the story that expresses the emotion as a reality that amplifies and increases the emotion, giving us more of the same feeling through the telling. We are conditioned to certain emotions through our family dynamics that form the initial patterns for all our relationships that we continue to create out of throughout our life. Our conditioning is what establishes (or reestablishes) our mental paradigm as a mental structure of a whole series of congruent patterns, all of which act together to form a larger pattern as the “theme” that shapes all our events by conforming them to tell the same type of story. All our behaviors are unconsciously being produced in a natural, spontaneous, and automatic way by our mind as our soul.

phoenix

The transformative idea around self-perfection, is to become self-aware of what we’re normally not aware of that’s being acted out unconsciously, and in recognizing and forming awareness around it, we have the ability to begin working with it consciously in an intentional and deliberate way to “reform” ourselves by embodying new qualities that naturally lend themselves to new ways of being. In recognizing the dynamics we’re programmed to as life-patterns, we can also recognize the emotions that produce them and keep us actively engaging in them. Emotions are the common denominator that connects the inner to the outer through the same thematic patterning as a behavioral dynamic. By understanding the emotions we’re prone to, we can also realize how we’re being internally stimulated emotionally by other people and situations that render us unconscious (literally) and keep us involved in acting out the same dynamics. Again, just the awareness of what’s happening inside of us at any given moment, nullifies it, and brings it under control, providing us with the neutralized basis to begin actively working on ourselves to change our own internal dynamics, which produce a chain reaction that also begins transforming our outer experiences.

 
The ancient art of Alchemy as Personal Transformation is the secret to all healing that allows us to move from a personalized, unconscious status, to an elevated conscious and universal status. Through self-awareness that brings realization around unconscious and hidden aspects of ourselves, we can deliberately work on ourselves to “perfect” ourselves healing unconscious tendencies by integrating them. Awareness alone begins the process of integration which transforms it by what we “choose to employ” in its place. All healing, in the spiritual sense, is becoming aware of aspects of ourselves that operate below the level of consciousness, without our direct awareness, that keeps us living out of false realities as an emotional delusion. It’s being fully self-aware and therefore self-directed and self-created with full awareness and comprehension of what we’re creating.

 
To perfect, is to reconstruct in order to operate in a highly proficient and harmonious manner. It’s to create in a benevolent and productive manner as a true vessel for self-expression as love that brings a deep sense of contentment, inner peace, and emotional beauty. We have to first learn how to bring emotions under control, neutralizing their effect “on us”, disengaging negative ones, while strategically employing positive ones to use as the basis for our expression as our perceptions and behaviors, and the dynamics our behaviors create and participate in within the outer world. All of our life-dynamics and thematic stories emerge naturally from whatever emotions we’re experiencing and allowing to come “through” us. Thought exists in direct relationship with its emotional equivalent. What we’re thinking about and imagining as a preview for reality is formed by our emotional state. Our emotions control our thoughts keeping us “thinking out of” a predominately unconscious (repetitious) state. And likewise, our thoughts also have the ability to produce emotions in response to them that are their equivalent as the expressive component of the thoughts that produce behaviors that brings the inward reality of the thoughts outward as a congruent experience. On the material plane, thoughts are passive and emotions are active. On the higher, spiritual (invisible) planes, the opposite is true and thoughts as ideas are active, and emotions are a passive response to thoughts as their equivalent that form the physical channel for actualizing the thoughts as an experience of reality. The dynamic relationship between thought, emotion, and actions exists on all planes simultaneously through different orientations.

humanenergy-spiritual-beings-consciousnessTo self-perfect and therefore consciously create, is to work this formula from a higher perspective where you neutralize emotion and bring them under control, while activating original thought as the template for creating new experiences that match the emotion to the idea by stimulating it, becoming a vehicle for it’s expression by employing the behaviors that act it out. It’s only by letting go of our habitual emotional states that we can gain control over them and over our thoughts which are otherwise controlled by them. Once we neutralize the intensity and stimulating qualities of emotions, we can experience a kind of “freeing sensation” that creates a strangely objective feeling as a dissociated awareness. In this awareness that’s no longer controlled by our emotional states and the emotions of others, we become aware from a calm place that we have the ability to choose, not only what we think and why we’re thinking it, but also how we want to respond to any situation, not as an unconscious and automatic reaction being projected, but as a means of creating in the situation by redirecting it. We gain a position of being “at cause” rather than the “effect that then acts as the cause”, causing more of the same thing. In this strange new awareness of choice without any influences (making the choice for us) directing our choice, comes a sense of responsibility for what we want to create by how we interact and consciously move it in a new direction by not only deflecting the emotions of others, but intentionally introducing new ones that change their emotional state and serve to move it in a whole new direction, creating a new experience.

 
With knowledge and the creative ability to apply it directly on others to create in an intentional and precise way, comes a heightened sense of responsibility for our creation and the consequences we draw on ourselves as a result. This is why the prerequisite for gaining higher knowledge is moral purity that cleanses our character of undesirable traits that not only would cause us to use our power in a selfish and harmful way, but would also condemn the soul of the individual to the consequences of their own actions. Any act that hurts another person, hurts ourselves in exact measure. What we do unto others we also do unto ourselves by drawing to us direct consequences of our own actions. Those who look to control and manipulate others, are in fact controlled and manipulated by others in direct response to them. As we seek to manipulate, we’re being manipulated just through the seeking itself. Any action creates an equal or greater reaction of the same nature. The effect is always the equivalent or of the same nature as the cause.

 
So self-perfection comes as a heightened form of self-awareness that allows us to reverse the orientation of the lower-emotional mind controlling the higher-idea mind, by bringing emotions into a neutral state where we’re no longer reactive to them, and we intentionally choose what ideas we’re going to employ, that moves us from a unconscious personalized illusion of reality, into a more universal and creatively objective reality where our will and ability to choose are reinstated and we begin creating ourselves and our lives through a different relationship with our own mind and body. We become conscious creators in our own life by mastering our ability to control and direct the elements of thought and emotion. We step outside of our self, and see ourselves in an objective manner from the perspective of our higher-self, always witnessing the experience from a neutral state by remaining outside of them, unattached and without desire. From this higher and more objective perspective, we are unaffected by the elements of the material – Astral plane, and are therefore able to control and direct it by creating and utilizing it as our medium and tools for self-creating.

souls_sphere_

To self-perfect is to honestly self-create with full awareness of what you’re doing and what reality you’re initiating that move you from being the effect of your conditioning to the one determining it. The soul is no longer control by the emotional states and behaviors of the body, and is free to use the body as a neutral conduit for creating within the material plane. By gaining control of the Elements, and stepping fully into our higher consciousness, we lose all personal desires born out of our identification with our body, and take on a position of serving the greater whole of humanity by acting always to facilitate their growth by moving them out of the darkness and into the light where they can see all aspects of themselves as they really are for the first time. In our perfection we ascend in consciousness to a higher plane that’s not personally invested in this plane, where we realize and can fully utilize our ability to deliberately express and create within this plane by first controlling and directing our own emotional thoughts, then being able to act as a mirror for others to become aware of their true nature and the delusions they create by letting their emotions control their mind and produce their experience of reality (and themselves) by way of them.

 
Self-perfection is gaining full control of your self within the material plane by stepping into yourself on the higher plane and being able to see everything in the light with eyes wide open. It’s to become self-aware, self-realized, and self-created. It’s to actualize latent potential, not necessarily as attributes and qualities that transform your character, though this may be how it starts, but by being able to take on a whole new perspective that sees your self “in this world, but not of it”, literally. Where you begin identifying more with your spiritual aspect than your bodily aspect. Where you return your body to a neutral vehicle for spirit to move through and create in the world masterfully using the very elements that shape it.

The Power of the Imagination – “Becoming the Author and Main-Star of our own Life”

birth
The imagination is greatly misunderstood by many people, even though we all have one, in terms of its true power. While the imagination can be used in a very creative way to produce and develop new ideas and works of art, it is also used in the more mundane sense to create fantasies as delusions by making up stories about things, or by replaying memories over and over as new variations that keep us always creating out of the past. Either way we use it, it provides a form of mental construct as the preliminary blueprint or thematic template for turning an idea into a physical reality.

 
Many confuse imagining with visualization, and as a result, draw the conclusion that they can’t visualize. Yet everyone can visualize and are doing it all the time through a form of recollection (memory as a mental imprint), or simply conceptualizing an idea as a way grasping it, or playing out possibilities as a form of anticipation. The imagination, while it works largely out of visualization, also works via all the senses, and comes just as readily as hearing something, feeling a certain way, sensing touch, smell, and so on. To imagine something is to create a sensory experience of it. Because senses are interconnected, and one automatically stimulates the others through a chain-of-association, no matter what triggers the imaginative process, a full reality as an inner experience of some sort is what results.

 
Memory or ideas thought about and imagined, come as a form of “invisible-translucent image” that’s similar to a reflection on glass, or the reflection on a dark surface (mirroring quality). We can replay memories in our mind while starring off into the space around us shifting our attention from the actual reality which fades into the background while giving our attention to the imaginary reality taking its place. We then play one reality over the top of the other one. While imaginary realities don’t have near the prominence of the actual outer physical reality, we still feel, see, hear, and recall what we were thinking about in full detail, and they produce a pronounced “internal affect” that colors our outer experiences to be of the same “feeling state”. This quality as more of an invisible, translucent image, that’s superimposed over the outer reality, becomes our “perceptual lens” that we “look through” and use to interpret our outer reality to be of the same nature or thematic idea. Through this translucent imagery as a lens, we restructure our outer reality, by abstracting, illuminating and activating only what matches it and can be used to form the same patterning as a feeling state, while not even noticing the elements that don’t lend themselves to expressing and creating more of the same feeling-states. Our attention operates as a form of “activating system” that pulls out what’s of the same idea while causing whatever isn’t to return to a latent, inactive state, and fade into the background. Through this means, we “filter” our outer, objective reality to match our internal imagined reality.

allseeing eye
Whatever we think about and imagine, which simultaneously forms an intention and expectation, becomes the lens as an ordering –organizing mechanism that literally determines what we “see” by how our mind restructures it by forming a personal interpretation of it. Because of this natural ability of the mind, we literally create our own interpretation of reality, and everybody sees something different in the same situation based on this filtering mechanism produced by the imagination as the internal reality that becomes the template for rearranging the outer reality as a reconfiguration, while noticing only the things that can be readily incorporated in the story the internal reality tells, while completely ignoring or simply failing to notice anything that doesn’t naturally lend itself or acts to contradict our story.

 
The imagination is the faculty of the mind that structures a dynamic matrix out of accumulated memory, forming a mental paradigm through the creation and synthesis of the memories it’s comprised of, that transforms the outer to match the inner. The structure of the mind, as its vibratory frequency (corresponding series of interwoven patterns) literally reshapes the outer, objective and neutral reality, to be the same through how it’s interpreted to tell the same story that the paradigm is designed (structured) to tell. We first create our experiences out of our paradigm based on synthesizing accumulated memory, forming them into a new memory of the same kind of story, keeping ourselves programmed to the same type of memory as a life theme.

 

Memory is created in the imagination out of an actual event that we reshape, personalizing it, by giving it meaning. The meaning we give it forms the story we tell about it, which simultaneously means the same thing about us, about others, and about the way the world is in general. It defines us, the nature of our relationships, and the perceived conditions we live in. This accumulated memory forms a theme that tells a certain type of story. This thematic story becomes our perceptual filter that only creates more of the same type of experiences over and over, by how we think, what we’re always in the process of telling ourselves, and what we see or don’t see in the world around us. We begin interpreting everything by way of this theme, and then we identify with our own stories which simultaneously shape our identity. After a while, if we’re not telling (living) the same type of story, we don’t know who we are, or how to tell a different story. And so we live out of the same story as a mental projection most, if not all of our life, without ever realizing it’s our “own creation”, formed and kept alive through our imagination. Replayed and imprinted in our mind-field (Astral) that surrounds our body, like a reflection on glass that we look through to form our perception.

 
This is the most basic meaning of karma. We live out of the same type of memories as a storyline that creates us according to the identity required to “live” that story as the author of it and main character in it, that forms our perceptual lens as our paradigm that determines what we see, how we feel, and what story we act naturally to tell. We continue creating out of the same basic type of memory, forming the same realities, relationships, and interactive dynamics because we don’t realize that we’re actually the one creating it, and also, the only one who has the power to change it.

 

We can form purely creative ideas in our imagination that replicate actual memory. Because memory is created and replayed in the imagination and used to create our experiences, by imagining ideas with full sensory enhancement and feeling, we can provide our own mind with new ideas and patterns that will transform and evolve our perceptual lens to be able to tell new kinds of stories. In doing this, we simultaneously evolve our identity to new and higher forms of experience. We can keep ourselves in a constant state of growth rather than settling into a mundane and methodical existence where we live out of the same mind-set for a lifetime, missing the opportunity to create ourselves anew in every moment by learning to operate our own mind and exercising our creative abilities in the most primal sense . . . . by self-creating through our ability to produce virtual memories!

Spiritual Knowledge is Laws that are Encoded in Symbolic Language: “Spiritual Principles are Creative Tools for Conscious Evolution”

decahedron metatrons cube Spiritual knowledge, unlike most things, requires you to seek it out through an inner desire for it, which intuitively communicates its knowledge through the language of imagery and geometry requiring you to acquire a broad range of knowledge in order to intuitively interpret it.  It’s not stated in plain terms as something specific, because it can’t be. If it is stated as something specific, then it’s really simply one aspect, or metaphorical way of looking at it that simply introduces an idea as a concept into your mind as a form of seed, that comes alive and begins growing as a continuous process of unfolding as a dynamic series of a chain-of-associated and correlated ideas that lead you deeper and deeper into related ideas as a kind of vastness that’s ultimately connected and correlated with everything else. The entire natural world (universe) is all governed by the same handful of laws as invisible forces that organize, form, and operate the material world. All true spiritual knowledge is the practical understanding of universal laws that are active and creative in every single aspect of the manifest world.

 
Just as the fundamental laws are all connected and interdependent as a form of growth process that moves systematically through stages and phases of development, the knowledge represented by these laws do the same thing. Spiritual knowledge as universal laws remain alive and in a constant state of fluctuation as a continuous evolution of the same fundamental ideas going through numerous spontaneous transformations as a dynamic relationship that constantly expresses in new ways, as new variations of the same idea in every moment based on how they’re being perceived, interpreted, and applied. The spiritual realm of pure energy is not fixed and formed like the material realm, but exists in a purely potential state as infinite possibilities for the same idea (pattern) to be formed and expressed based on what individual mind tunes into it, serves to conceive of it, and forms it into a personalized version by how they imagine it and adapt it to their current conditions and circumstances to produce an actual experience as the physical equivalent.


Ideas are principles that exist as archetypes (memory as dynamic living patterns) that are represented by geometric shapes (form, function & behavior) that are mathematical in nature (exist in relationships) and form a living entity (personality), imbued with distinct attributes, qualities and characteristics as it’s innate constitution. The constitution of an animated being has a form of personality in it that display distinct attitudes and behaviors, and undergo natural operations as biological processes that create in the physical world through myths or stories the personality naturally tells by how it interacts in relationship to everything else.

 
Principles as philosophical mathematics, structure the material realm determining how it naturally functions. The form biological matter takes on, determines what it does through natural behaviors and how it does it as a form of style or personality. Form that’s structured and animated through life-force energy, functions in very distinct ways through a kind of personality, which not only determines what processes it performs, but the quality of consciousness as characteristics that form traits for “how it does it” in a somewhat unique fashion. These principles as life-forms remain in a constant state of growth and evolution because in every moment they’re entering into relationship with everything else around it that modifies it by exchanging information as an energetic form of metabolism, reforming it to express in new ways through different combinations of information that it integrates that reconfigures it. All physical matter, though it appears solid and consistent in its behavior, remains in a constant state of regeneration that comes by exchanging information between the inner core and the outer environment, which equalizes the internal to match the external. The molecular structure of the material entity is constantly conforming to its environment as the means of survival and growth within or by way of the environment, that’s the most basic function of evolution.

birthHuman beings, which are bestowed with a higher mind that’s creative in nature, and have the ability to modify the environment as a means of surviving and functioning within it, only exchanges energy with what’s of a similar vibration or quality of consciousness with everything around it through resonance. It forms union with ideas that can be shaped into it’s model of the world in a congruent fashion and used to tell their primary life’s story. Vibration as ideas that are too different and exist in a range that can’t be processed by our vibratory frequency, doesn’t resonate with us, and isn’t integrated as a means of modifying our vibration. Because of this law, the law of sympathies and antipathies, we tend to only grow and evolve through absorption and assimilation of the same frequency (range), and only occasionally move into different frequencies.

 
When we do grow in a significant manner, it’s usually not through deliberate intentions (though it can be), but by having change thrown on us through changing life circumstances that force us to resort to alternative means because our entire life situation changes, and new influences and processes come into play, that we have to adjust to by changing our most basic routines that form our daily lifestyle, which act to break the pattern set by the old routine. Frequencies can be thought of as creative patterns, where we live out of the same tendencies and personality traits that keep repeatedly creating the same type of situations that tell the same type of story over and over throughout our life. When we evolve into a new frequency, we act to initiate and actively participate in creating a new type of story that employ new aspects of our character not being used when telling the previous story.

 
Spiritual knowledge, unlike conventional knowledge, requires intuitive development as a means of sensing and interpreting the symbolic language it’s written in. Conventional knowledge is given to us in written, verbal language as already interpreted for us. We don’t have to form our interpretation as a unique and personal version, but simply have to accept it verbatim as knowledge itself, without ever having to think for ourselves as the means for interpreting it that transform it into a personalized version that’s unique to us. Because spiritual knowledge requires us to interpret it intuitively, we not only learn simultaneously “how to think for ourselves”, but we have to form a concept of it in our imagination that turns it into a reality as a practical application as an inner experience that becomes a form of virtual memory that acts as a form of blueprint for using within our daily lives in order to consciously create reality. Laws and principles are the tools for “how to” create life.

atom
In order to use an idea, we have to have a working understanding of it. We can only understand what we can conceptualize as an internal representation that forms it as a possible outer reality or actual material object. So information that’s communicated symbolically teaches us how to think by imagining, how to conceptualize by applying to a real life scenario, and integrates the information into our paradigm as a form of virtual experience that becomes an actual memory. As we form ideas into realities that operate according to natural laws, they’re formed into memories that can be recollected, accessed and used for reference, and used as a creative tool from that point on. We acquire the information as a “paradigm shift” by internalizing it to bring it from a thought into an actual form that operates in a specific and consistent way. Knowledge as experience that forms a memory becomes a permanent and natural part of how we feel, perceive and interpret life events. It becomes a built-in process of how we naturally think.

 
All spiritual development is personal development as the knowledge of laws, integrated into the mind to evolve the soul, that are brought into practice to form our daily lifestyle and natural behaviors as the primary means of personal transformation. Only knowledge that’s applied and lived serves to reform us as an evolving creation. Laws and principles, which pertain to all of life, provide us with the creative tools for shaping our life by “living them”. By how we utilize them to make everyday decisions and direct our own behavior. Laws as spiritual technology provide us with the means to grow and evolve ourselves into higher levels of consciousness and vibrate at a higher frequency, as harmonious with Nature and at one with all of life.

Light and Dark Forces – The Illusion of Good and Evil and the Balance of Life

good and bad

Light, which is often portrayed as “white” is in reality, invisible. What makes light visible as an illumination is an effect of the elements where photons (light particles) are either reflected off particles and form the colors they reflect, or photons are absorbed into matter and remain invisible, or unseen by the physical eyes. Without an atmosphere which is produced by light as heat absorbed by water which produces air, what we call “light” from the sun, isn’t light at all outside of a radiant glow around the sun itself. Space, which is filled with suns (light sources) is virtually dark. This is because there’s no matter to reflect light being omitted from numerous star systems. Without matter to separate light by absorbing some aspects of it while reflecting others, light as we know it wouldn’t exist, and we’d be in the dark seeing only the distant radiance of the stars and the reflected light of the moon (or any other celestial body). Light and dark, before they’re separated and used to contrast each other, exist as the “same thing.”

 
Because what we actually “see” in terms of colors – the vibratory rays inherent in light – is actually the aspect of light not being absorbed and thereby reflected, is actually showing us what it’s “not” in terms of vibratory frequency. A green plant for example, shows us what property of the spectrum exists outside of its vibratory range of absorption as resonance and sympathetic induction, and therefore fails to be absorbed as the energetic essence of the plant. We can know what rays the plant absorbs as the complementary colors of it outer reflection, and if the reflection is a complementary color itself, such as green (combination of two primary colors), we can measure the degree of absorption of the primaries it’s comprised of (in this case yellow and blue). Because of this dynamic interplay of opposites that are complementary (serve to stimulate and contrast each other), the material world as we know it through the vibratory schematic of colors and gradient shades is actually the opposite of its actual vibratory content and composition. We’re always seeing a mirror image of its energetic composition as it’s reflection of opposite properties.

 
This same idea works with inner vision and outer visions. Notice that if you stare at a green shape for a few seconds, then close your eyes, the same shape will form internally as red, the complementary opposite of green. This same effect will happen no matter what color you look at. The inner image produced in the dark is opposite in terms of color as the image seen in the light. Likewise, the colors that form inner visions and dream-like holographic images common in meditation are in the color of their actual frequency rather than a reflection which is not of their frequency. So light and dark, like all opposites that are actually complementary exist as one until separated (filtered) by matter of some sort. The light is invisible and appears dark without an object to both absorb and reflect certain aspects of light as the color spectrum, using the same unified substance to separate, contrast, and reflect other aspects giving it definition and distinct “knowable” properties.

The Physical World is a Mirror Image of the Spiritual World

From a purely energetic perspective, the physical world is formed by a reflection of the energetic (spiritual) world, which illuminates it while giving it distinct characteristics. So to say that light (as reflected illumination) is “good” and dark (as absorbed energy of the same vibration) is “evil”, in the most basic sense is the opposite of the truth. Instead of reflecting a truth, these terms have come to be used as a metaphor for good and evil, which is usually more of a judgment than a fact, and is actually meant to express knowledge as wisdom (being able to see) as opposed to ignorance and profanity (as being in the dark unable to see). Good is seen as deeds that are benevolent and creative as opposed to their opposite as hostile and destructive. Yet we can only “know one” as it exists in relationship and direct contrast to the other. Opposite qualities are necessary for existence as separation of inherent aspects that brings definition through comparison which is necessary in order to “experience” them “as” something specific.

 
This basic principle of unified forces that exist in a basic state of polarity that come into existence only through separation and contrast necessary to create a reality based on their dual nature that clashes and opposes itself in everything else, is the very foundation of life that makes experience as a personal reality possible. In order to get a sense of ourselves “as” something specific – as good, beautiful, divine, courageous, or strong – we have to contrast ourselves with the opposite quality in others that form the relationship necessary to define each other. Without evil, we couldn’t know good. Without hot, cold wouldn’t be meaningful, it wouldn’t convey any information necessary to create an experience of cold, which only comes by how it relates to hot.

 
What we call God as consciousness Itself that forms the energetic basis out of which all of life arises in an infinite variety of shared qualities remixed, is the unification of both light and dark, good and bad as undivided and coherent. Electromagnetic fields that simultaneously move away from each other while attracting to each other, resolve by forming a spiraling motion that form the basis for the dynamic drama we call life, in all its diversity and infinite variety. We all have within us both active and passive qualities, ones that are active and being expressed, and ones that remain latent and in a purely potential state. Latent potential is only stimulated and called forth into activity by its complementary force in the outside world. These qualities have never been utilized because we haven’t had to use them in a live situation. We are both outward and electric, and inwardly centered and magnetic.

Life – the Universal Drama

Likewise, there’s always a debate or contest going on within us by contrasting aspects of ourselves seeking outward expression by the victory of dominance. In order to be “courageous”, we need life to set the stage as outer conditions and circumstances that first elicit fear and uncertainty where we have to choose to “be” courageous by how we respond and interact with it. We can either let the fear overcome us and coward in response to it, or we can rise to meet it and overcome it through sheer willpower of some form. The outer life sets the stage necessary to awaken and bring forth in us the qualities necessary to transform them by how we enter into relationship with them.

 
We are always drawn to, and drawing to us, the ideal circumstances that will allow us to express inner qualities necessary to rise to them and self-create by way of them. We only become strong by overcoming difficult challenges. In order to give love, we have find and connect with someone desiring and able to receive love. In order to experience ourselves as good, we have to confront and resist evil. Otherwise there’s no shaping mechanism that allows us through virtue of our own constitution and will to meet life by embodying qualities that give us the experiences as a “sense of ourselves” that shape our identity, “who” we are, and what type of story we naturally tell by how we live our life.

 
In this realization we appreciate the wholeness of life, all of which feeds on and is nourished by all other aspects that exist in a dynamic relationship that’s actually an optic illusion as a virtual reality. The only thing that’s good or bad, or that exists as “our truth” is whatever we say is true. Whatever is true for us. Absolute truth as law, which isn’t based on belief or personal opinion, and is consistent throughout all of life beyond our personal paradigm which shapes the world to be like us, embodies all aspects of itself necessary to live out the drama of life in a way that allows everyone to develop whatever qualities in themselves they have a natural propensity towards that only comes by way of encountering and interacting with it’s opposite qualities in everyone and everything else.

Light as the visible world we call truth, is actually the opposite of truth as the vibratory nature of the physical forms themselves. While the form indicates function, the color represents the aspect of consciousness as a form of personality that animates it as behavior of some kind. The natural color as a quality of consciousness being illuminated or projected by the object isn’t the quality it possesses, but the quality it lacks. It’s the aspect of light that doesn’t fall within its vibratory range and can’t be absorbed. But we can know its real nature as it’s vibration by how the visible aspects exist in relationship to the invisible aspects as opposite and therefore complementary. This law governing colors as aspects of vibration inherent in light, only pertains to the natural world and not man made colors which are made with pigments that are made in an opposite manner of true light as the light spectrum.

 
The visible world, represented by “light”, or being illuminated and therefore seeable and knowable, is actually a projection as a false image rather than what reveals the true inner nature of the substance. Just as our inner nature is represented as the darkness created when we close our eyes, blocking out the light of the outer world, where our “shadow aspects” as qualities that we aren’t fully aware of are projected onto the outer world and others and reflected back to us, where we see aspects of ourselves in other people and react to them, usually while failing completely to realize that the traits we see in others that we form a strong reaction to (as resonance) are actually traits we have inside that we don’t fully own, or remain largely unaware of.

 
By realizing this reflective and absorbing quality of the inner with the outer, as seen and unseen aspects of ourselves, we can obtain knowledge of ourselves by realizing that the outer world is absorbing and reflecting back to us not their qualities, but rather our own qualities in them. Not by the behaviors they’re displaying, but by our reaction to their behaviors born out of our own interpretations as our perception of them. A reaction is absorption of energy stimulated by that same energy (frequency) in the outer world that enters into us (is absorbed by us) and produces a corresponding effect as an emotional reaction or body sensation. Emotions are what connect us to the same vibration in the outer world.

Heart EM field
By realizing that only energy as quality of consciousness that has emotions and behaviors in it, that are of the same nature as we are, can penetrate us and stimulate that same perception and behaviors in us as an emotional reaction, we can realize that anytime we’re reacting to somebody that they’re mirroring back to us our own qualities. In this way we can become aware of qualities that we possess that we remain unaware of through denial or repression of some form. Through awareness of what previously eluded us, we can begin consciously working to transform negative aspects of ourselves into positive ones. The very basis of all transformation as creation comes only by way of self-awareness that brings realization.

 
This reverse action as opposites of the same pattern (frequency) that act to stimulate each other calling forth the same idea in both people that then act out the same drama as a joint reality in which they play complementary roles, is the very basis of life itself as consciousness that only exists in the material plane through separation of dual aspects of the same nature (living pattern) as a relationship with itself in another. What we see in the material realm only shows us half the equation of what actually exists. By realizing that everything exists in relationship to itself in everything else, and that the outer trait acts to stimulate the opposite as an inner trait that’s a necessary part of a dynamic relationship that will serve to co-create a joint reality by playing opposite roles in the same idea as bringing an imagined inner idea into the world as an equivalent outer experience.

 
A pattern is a whole idea with many parts that all reflect and play roles in acting out that idea as a reality. This is how vibration as consciousness forms material realities as story lines formed out of shared themes that require someone else to play the opposite role in creating the same drama. Someone who believes people can’t be trusted and expects betrayal of some form, in order to live this belief out as a reality, has to attract a person who can’t be trusted and ultimately acts as the betrayer. Someone who sees themselves as a victim, naturally acts to attract someone who will victimize them. Someone who lives out of the theme of being abandoned, acts to naturally attract and enter into relationship with someone who will abandon them, usually while producing the behaviors that warrant being abandoned without full awareness that they are actually the ones causing their own abandonment.
Whatever theme we live out of as a core belief, forms the story we are programmed to tell through the relationships we form and what kind of behavior we employ as our conditioning which trains us to that pattern as a behavioral dynamic. In this sense we are always attracting the right people to play the opposite role in whatever story we are ideally suited to tell by how we’re designed. This attraction of opposites that are complementary is the only way we can continue to tell our story as a consistent reality. It determines what type of people we’ll naturally enter into relationship with and what pattern will issue forth and be immediately established as the nature of our relationships.

 
We are always being provided with the means to see the true nature or unknown aspects of something or someone by how the outer characteristics and behaviors exist in relationship to the inner aspects. What people put out front for us to see, seldom represents who they really are. Whatever image someone creates of themselves, they will naturally act to attract anyone who contrasts or contradicts it. We sustain and support ourselves off of what we resist and contrast.

 
While the surface appearances of natural things do not reveal their true nature, they do provide us with the information we need to realize their inner nature by how it exists in relationship to their outer characteristics. By utilizing the law governing algebra, we can know the unknown aspects of any equation by how they naturally exist in relationship to the known aspects. Through the law of analogies and correspondences we can realize relationships through a dynamic chain of association that identifies the same nature or quality of consciousness as it exists in various outer forms. The outer appearance reveals to us the true inner nature as a correspondence . . . if we know how to look at it.
