The Initiate and the Principle for Ascension – Qualities, Higher Capacities, and Faculties of an Initiate

While the idea of ascension to what we call “higher dimensions” (those of the Heavenly realm) is a term used quite loosely and somewhat frivolously in our new age society, it has been the goal and devoted life path of the Initiate since antiquity. This is the original idea around the priesthood of all Spiritual Sciences before it became corrupted, laid to ruins, and ultimately lost to the vulgar and profane. The reason the Magical Sciences reside in what we commonly think of as secrecy and mystery, is because, in their most fundamental form they’re incomprehensible and unattainable to the untutored, and even when discovered in what could be considered a comprehensible format, they’re often grossly misinterpreted, robbing them of any actual value, and therefore misused in the most basic sense.

Magical Sciences are written and pictured in symbolic terms that require an in-depth working knowledge of several major scientific systems in order to be interpreted correctly. This provides a kind of fail-safe system for preventing the information from getting in the wrong hands, and customizes the knowledge to the individual discerning it, making it ideal for their growth and intended application. All knowledge of the Spiritual Sciences is a “living creative force” that exists in a primarily potential state, forever morphing and evolving, and like the laws that comprise it, is interpreted in a unique way each time it’s comprehended and utilized by an individual to create within their own life somehow. The only Absolute Truth in Spiritual Sciences is the Universal Laws themselves, which while steadfast and unchanging, are creative in nature, and each time utilized form a unique variation as a material manifestation.

The other aspect of this Sacred Knowledge that makes it largely unattainable by the profane is that it requires a “vessel” that’s of a well-developed mental, emotional, physical, and moral state. Knowledge, like all things, exists as a frequency that can only be “drawn in”, absorbed and integrated by what’s of the same frequency. We can only truly “perceive” and therefore grasp and comprehend in everything else what’s of the same nature and pattern as we are in terms of our mental “paradigm”. Our paradigm is the energetic structure of our mind (electromagnetic energy field of information as coherent memory) that not only “informs us” and makes up our constitution, but is also the “lens we look through” in order to comprehend the outside world to be of the same nature as we are. In order to act as a recipient of higher knowledge or information, we have to develop ourselves to be of a higher nature also, possessing the same qualities and traits, in order to act as an appropriate and equivalent channel for that “type” of information to flow into, rise up in our imagination as our own thoughts, providing us with a template of a potential reality that forms the basis for all of our behaviors as a primary form of self-expression and our natural way of being.

The path of Initiation is not for the fainthearted or those looking for an easy way out or to somehow use it in terms of the archetype it represents as a way of embellishing their ego and enhancing a glorified self-image. Many think of it as a sort of romantic idea of valor, honor, and adventure into the unknown, which of course it is, yet the true reality of it is that you’re constantly being pushed past your perceived limitations and unconscious programming in every moment of your everyday life. It’s not an exercise program you do for 10 minutes, 3 times a day, and no one watches over you to make sure you do it and stay on task. It requires extreme forms of discipline in every area of your life in order to detach from all material forms of gratification, and create yourself as a neutral vehicle within the material realm that can’t be influence, affected, or altered by it.

We live in a society that’s bred and conditioned to be weak-willed, spoiled to mindless and impulsive addictions that offer the illusion of security and physical comfort as convenient pleasure of some kind that will medicate your problems, hopefully making them bearable, and the constant distraction of passive and meaningless entertainment that keeps us focused on things that don’t matter, where everything has to be delivered to us as “The 7 Easy Steps to . . . ”, where a kind of laundry list is given that sends the message “anyone can do this because it’s not hard”. Something that’s hard and requiring effort, self-sacrifice, or loss of some kind is to be avoided at all cost. You can’t “sell” hard, and there’s no money to be made if you can’t sell something to eager consumers who are looking to simply pass time by entertaining theory that allows them to contemplate and pretend while never actually engaging or doing.

We are conditioned to the idea of “easy solutions” to what amounts to a global crisis in consciousness when the reality is . . . it’ll be the hardest thing you ever do, and it will push you past every fear and limitation neatly secured and held in place by your comfort zone that you currently protect, defend and preserve passionately with the very nature of your thoughts, perceptions, and emotional tendencies. It’ll cause you to live your life on the edge of a precipice that resembles a bottomless pit, where you’re frantically clinging to security while being overwhelmed with a terrifying feeling you have no words to describe, taken back and somewhat stricken by an awkward and somewhat unexpected experience where you encounter parts of yourselves previously unknown that can overwhelm and consume you in the most ordinary moments of your everyday life. It changes your orientation from an outward focus and awareness to an inward one. Your awareness of the true nature of things takes on a heightened and pronounced sense that leads you into deeper worlds that previously existed only as a vague impression and alluring mystery that was unknown and unrealized. A magical world that once you tune into it and begin engaging by becoming one with it, like a lover, its intimacy magnetic and alluring, draws you forever into it with a sense of fascination, wonder and awe. You enter into a kind of magical current that flows along in an effortless manner where you lose all sense of yourself as being apart from it.

Once enthralled in the deep sense of inner-connectedness and intimate love, enveloped by an all-pervading sense of peace and inner calm, a kind of contentment pervades us and we vow complete and utter devotion to it. We form a bond that becomes our very source and substance, the inner-well that we draw on to nourish our soul and carry us through the most trying of moments. We are never again alone, never forsaken or abandoned; we form a partnership with a higher part of ourselves in order to redeem ourselves of the consequences we drawn upon us by incorrect perceptions, distorted thinking, bad decisions, and destructive deeds born out of ignorance, so we can clean up our mess and eventually go home. All of life is an arduous journey back to our origins as divine beings that are of a compassionate and loving nature, no longer vested in immoral illusions of worldly events and dramatic delusions being played out in a blind and uninhibited manner by those infected with the insanity of lust, greed, and power.  A realization of our true nature, detaching from the false illusion of our material identity, and resuming our place in the grand scheme of things as spiritual leaders of a universal sovereignty, which through mastery of the elements, work only in every situation for the benefit of all involved, uncorrupt and untainted by a personal agenda designed to meet a material need.

 

Understanding, Honoring, and Properly Utilizing the Power of Words

The first and most pervasive idea that needs to be fully embodied through a deep sense of realization as to its actual importance is the power of the spoken word. Words are spoken both inwardly as our very thoughts, and outwardly as our speech and acts as a form of invocation that stimulates and plants the seed of the thought in other people’s minds so that the reality they naturally invoke in the imagination become a form of joint creation. The saying “I think therefore I am” may be more accurately stated as “As I think I become the reality of my thoughts”. We self-create by way of our own thinking by calling forth (forming a perception of) the reality of our thoughts that we then use to create an experience of ourselves in relationship to our own creation. The “word” is creative because it calls forth in the imagination the image, form, and reality as the meaning of the word. The reality we form in our mind’s eye becomes the perceptual lens as a filtering system we “look through” in order the reshape the outer reality to mean the same thing as a correlation to the inner reality.

All actions of what we call “spirit” is creative in nature, and creates through will as speaking the words that shape the internal image of the form inherent in the words that becomes the template as a lens for producing the material equivalent as a perception of it. Because of this feature, words, spoken first inwardly, then outwardly are a form of self-fulfilling prophecy. What we talk about and profess as being the nature of our reality, meaning our experience of things, is exercising our creative power to produce the experience of our thoughts in whatever set of circumstances and conditions we find ourselves in by the story we tell ourselves and others about them. Intelligence, in its most primary state, is revelation and prophecy. “Being” is the principle, speech is its means, and the expression, development, and perfection of Being is the end result. To speak and imagine is to literally create as a willful act. The secret of the “will” lies in the imagination.

Thought as spoken words, when shaped in the imagination, casts and projects the image or reality as the meaning of the words into the “astral light” of the material plane of substance. This is the “substance” as “light essence” that the mind organizes into forms in the imagination. Any form that’s organized repetitively in a systematic way due to strong emotions being associated with it (astral plane is governed by the forces of emotion), forms into a permanent archetype as a memory that attracts, absorbs, and emanates and electromagnetic field as the “etheric body” of the form. The etheric body is comprised of a phantom-like liquid light that forms a hologram of the image and has a “self-organizing mechanism” inherent in it that attracts the elements of its fulfillment (can be used to structure it) from the immediate environment, organizing them into a greater reality of the same meaning and likeness that will generate more of the same “feelings and emotions” that produced it. This is the self-perpetuating aspect of vibration that’s infinite.

All outer reality is produced by the same pattern as the internal one being played out on a greater scale and level of complexity that serves to generate experiences of the same meaning and nature. It’s the meaning inherent in all of our experiences that’s the “creative component” as a common denominator. All “meaning” is the “personal aspect” of experience as our creative ability in (re)shaping the outer world. Every event that multiple people partake in, will have a different meaning for each one, and will shape how they each “experience” the event as a result. Meaning creates on 3 levels simultaneously and forms the basis as the theme for all of our stories. The meaning we give something, means something about the way other people are, the way the world is in general, and about us in relationship with it (and the creator of it). Whatever we form in our imagination as a cohesive part of our ongoing story and “type” of reality we act to naturally give rise to through our mental model, we cast into the astral light, and literally “request” as a form of prayer (imagined thought), which provides the “attraction factor” for magnetizing us to more of the same type of realities that will give us more of the same type of feelings.

Once we gain a deep realization and firm understanding of the truth and power of our own thoughts and what we outwardly speak, we have the tools and means to begin taking full responsibility for our life and self-creation by becoming aware of our own internal dialogue and the story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about things that create our experience of them. This has historically been achieved through extended periods of silence where you resisted the urge to speak habitually in a thoughtless and meaningless manner, and self-reflected instead on your own unconscious motives and tendencies. The majority of our thoughts and behaviors run in an automatic fashion and are produced in a completely unconscious manner making us thoughtless and reckless creators within our own life. They’re unconscious, not in the sense that we don’t know what we’re saying or doing, but in the sense that we have no idea of what we’re actually doing in terms of “creating by way of our thoughts”. We mistakenly believe that our thoughts are describing our experience and what has happened to us in our life in an objective and factual manner, when in reality, they are the very means for how we’re producing those experiences through our perception and interpretation of them to form our story about them.

So one of the first principles that we have to master, is the ability to control and determine our own thoughts. We have to learn how to honor the power of words and begin thinking and speaking in a mindful and deliberate manner. We can learn to utilize the creative ability of thoughts that are imagined vividly coupled with intense emotions that make them very compelling, as the means of producing the reality of those thoughts. Through a form of intentional thinking and reasoning, we can create our experiences of reality as an interpretation that provides us with the memories that we use to shape ourselves in an intentional manner. By self-reflecting on our habitual thoughts we can become aware of what exists and has life within us as unconscious aspects of ourselves, and through the awareness and realization it brings, we can resolve them so they’re no longer active and creative in us.

 

Instinct – Passion and Prejudice

The lower plane of the material world consists of Astral Light which is a magnetic fluid that we experience as emotions and passions of various sorts, which are very compelling and grip us with a form of intensity that makes them hard to resist. This is the plane of “instinct” that governs the entire natural world through emotional reactions that produce impulsive and automatic behaviors without a thought-process being involved or required. Man, being both animal (body) and Divine (higher mind), is affected and deeply influenced by emotions, while simultaneously having the ability to think and perceive in a reasonable and rational manner. By utilizing the higher capacities of our mind we can willfully create in an intentional manner by taking hold of and directing our own thoughts and behavior.

Emotion, which is the language and motivating force of the material plane, is necessary in order to produce action of some sort. Thought as an idea in its potential (unformed) state, propagates from the higher plane of pure energy as invisible forces into the upper regions of the lower plane, casting its image into the light, impregnating it with the seed necessary to produce the “form of the idea” as an etheric shell that spirit as life-force can then inhabit in order to bring it to life. This life-force energy is the active force of the material plane experienced as sensation, arousal, and stimulation that produces emotional states of some sort that compel us into action as natural behaviors inherent in the emotions themselves. Whatever the emotion causes us to feel and imagine inwardly, whether pleasure or pain, expresses as the reality of the emotion by controlling our thoughts, and produces the outward correspondence of our imagined thoughts and serves to “give us” more of the same feeling.

If the reality is pleasurable and therefore desirable, it has a seductive quality that’s very luring and enticing, and causes us to think and imagine pleasurable experiences as the means of acquiring it. If the reality is painful, it invokes a deep sense of fear and defensiveness, which is equally gripping and serves to control the imagination to form the reality it implies as the experience of it. All emotional reactions whether good or bad in terms of why we’re reacting, are passionate in nature and act to control us in the most basic sense of governing and determining our thoughts and what we lend our will to through the mere act of entertaining them. To be “passionless” is equivalent to being emotionless, in the sense of not being controlled by emotional states or the emotions constantly being projected at us by others as a means of using their will to gain control of ours. When we’re expressing passions of some form, we’re literally being controlled by the emotional state of that passion. Whenever we “react” to something, we’re being influenced and controlled by it. That’s what a reaction is. We can only exercise “control over” what doesn’t “control us”.

If we’re constantly being controlled by emotional states of some sort, then we have no ability to maintain control over ourselves, and we are NOT an appropriate vessel for higher powers to operate through in a neutral and unbiased manner. Emotions distort and corrupt our thinking forming the basis of our perception of reality as a delusion of our own making, rather than as the perception of truth unmoved by animal instinct. When we reside largely in a reactive state produced by our emotions, we act without conscious and willful (deliberate) thought, and lend our will instead to whatever it is we’re reacting to. Any time we’re reacting we’re being controlled by the will of another or by an idea. All emotions are connected to our instinctual states and produce the illusion of the emotion as an imagined reality that’s used in place of the actual reality that acts to invoke automatic behavior in a knee-jerk and impulsive fashion.

As an Initiate, we can’t be enslaved by passions, worldly prejudices, and our own opinions. An Adept is a person who is fully self-created and achieved by active use of the will and the deeds that issue forth from will as the manifestation of will. Through this practice we employ our God-given ability to self-create by masterful use of our own mind to govern and direct the subconscious mind of the body which is always living out of memory of various sorts activated by the emotions associated with the memories that provide it with programs for producing automatic perceptions and behaviors that don’t require thought, active choice, or will to create in an intentional manner. We have to employ our higher creative capacities in order to become “God-like” and able to truly create within the material world rather than acting mindlessly to be created by it.

The Four Indispensable Conditions of the Magi

The main goal of the soul within the material world is to transcend it through willful acts of self-creation that ultimately master the Elements governing it. The soul is formed out of memory acquired through its own creative ability to manifest realities as a means of acquiring experiences of itself by way of its own creation. The Elements of the material plane, as we have already discussed, are primarily known as the natural forces that produce sensation, feelings, and emotions as an inner stimulus that causes the material reality inherent in that feeling as a seeded thought to rise up in the imagination where its shaped by astral light as a ghost-like substance into the reality of the feeling sensation that expresses it while simultaneously giving us more of the same feelings. The power of the Elemental world is to create experiences that become the basis for the souls “memory”, which shapes it in terms of its constitution, character, and identity, determining its evolution to higher or lower forms of expression.

We can only master the material world through an in-depth knowledge of the natural forces that govern and operate within it, a sense of fearlessness produced through the knowledge obtained, the ability to willfully direct it using our own mind, and the faith as a form of patience necessary to allow the time necessary for manifestation. What’s referred to as the “devil” or the “evil forces” of the material plane is the magnetic fluid that influences us through passions, emotions, and desire of some form. All of which are an attempt to “lead us into temptation” by surrendering our will with the promise of worldly delights and sensuous pleasures and allow ourselves to be shaped and determined by instinctual forces of the animal kingdom. Whatever we become like in thought, feelings, and behaviors, we bond our soul to in terms of the equivalent frequency, level and quality of consciousness, and morality. If we allow ourselves to be driven and controlled by instinctual passions and tendencies, then we equate ourselves with animals and become “animal-like” in nature. We forfeit our ability to decide what we allow into us to take hold and rise up in us as our reality, and we become determined by primal forces that feed off of our will while condemning our soul to a mortal life.

To ascend to higher planes of consciousness, four conditions have to be created: intelligence that’s illuminated by constant study (expanding and growing our ability to comprehend higher truths); a fearlessness that nothing can check (we’re not controlled by fear); a cast iron will that can’t be broken or negotiated away (determination and perseverance); and a prudence (purity) which nothing can corrupt or intoxicate. In the world of the Magi, this is known as the credo which is stated as: To know, to dare, to will, and to keep silent. These are inscribed in the four symbolic forms of the sphinx traditionally represented by the man, eagle, lion, and the bull, and also by the four Elements of water, air, fire, and earth. Through devoted study of spiritual sciences we acquire knowledge of the three worlds which provide us with the tools and means necessary to transcend it by gaining control over it through the virtue of our mind. It’s always a question of who’s doing the controlling. Are we controlling ourselves, or are we being controlled by another or an outside force?

Self-Knowledge and Realization

Knowing one’s self is the center, foundation, and first step in the application of spiritual knowledge to self-create. True self-knowledge comes through the realization that in every moment of our lives we are the one solely responsible for creating ourselves by way of creating our experiences of the outer world. While we can’t control what happens to us (necessarily) we can absolutely control how we choose to perceive it, what we focus on, what we tell ourselves about it that makes it mean something, and how we behave or respond as a result. As long as we are blown from one shore to another and jerked around like a puppet on a string, always in the midst of an emotional reaction, a delusion that robs us of our dignity by way of insanity, cleaving desperately to the identity we achieve through the thoughts and opinions of others laid down before us to blindly accept as truth, we are changeable, and through the Principle of Supreme Reason, become mortal.

To cleave invariably to reason, making ourselves unchangeable by the material forces and the will of others, we become independent of the forces that make use of our own will to change us, and become self-determined instead. We learn how to suffer with dignity, make self-sacrifices that ultimately serve our higher good, to refrain from all temptation designed to lead astray, and to die to what’s no longer a part of us. These are the secrets which when mastered, place us well beyond the reach of affliction, desires of the flesh, and of the fear of annihilation that comes from buying into a mortal existence. We become the master of mindless brutes as the instinctual forces of nature, not by fighting against them or arguing to justify their existence, but by subduing and taming them, otherwise we become a victim to them and serve as their slave. The material world as we know it has been laid out before us as a battlefield where depression and inertia struggles with justice and freedom in opposition of the active force. We can only reign over what we have first conquered in ourselves. Only those who have conquered and resolved the love of pleasure can truly know the pleasure of love.

To know yourself is to remain centered within your truth in even the most challenging of moments. It’s to be able to stand in opposition of those trying to overcome you by introducing self-doubt in order to gain control of your will. We can always know the true nature of others and the events of our life by what they serve to activate within us in relation and response to them, and call forth as an interaction. To be fearless is to not be affected by the subliminal methods used by others to introduce fear as a means of gaining control of your will. The easiest way to subdue and coerce is through tactics that cause fearful thoughts, or cause us to doubt ourselves in some way. Those who are well-studied and developed through daily practices are able to sense the nature and intention of the motive forces being projected and utilized, and respond to them as they are rather than through the illusion they pose under. To sense the truth through knowledge of the laws governing all of reality, is true power.

To work through self-knowledge is to always be in control of yourself with a clear mind and the knowledge of truth in every situation. It’s to never give up control of yourself to another or external forces of some kind, and to never lend your will to someone else, allowing them to control and determine you. It’s to constantly maintain a sense of sovereignty over yourself.  Self-knowledge and self-creation is the foundation of truth and wisdom and forms the basis out of which everything else comes. As creative and willful beings, we are the sole creators of ourselves and our world. Our mental paradigm forms our perception of the world and what appears “real to us”. When we truly know ourselves and always operate out of that self-awareness, we are truly incapable of being influenced and “changed” by the others and the material world, and as a result we step back into our true identity as eternal and immortal beings.

Self-Mastery through Controlling Emotions – Consciously Working with the Motivating Force of the Material Plane

electric
In order to fully understand emotions and their intimate connection to “experience”, we have to look at life from the multidimensional level of interpenetrating planes of existence that are all interacting to form a coordinated movement as what we experience as reality. Our material reality is formed of three basic levels: the mental, emotional, and physical, with a four-fold nature – mood, thought, emotions, and actions – which combines to form an idea as a living reality. Our reality is created in a cohesive manner out of our feelings and thoughts which are always connected to and congruent with our emotions, which together create our mental paradigm as an interlaced series of ideas generated out of a central idea, which acts more like a theme. The theme of life we form as our mind-set and attitude forms our life story as the type of story we’re always in the process of telling by how we perceive and interpret things to give them meaning and how we experience them through what we tell ourselves about them and how we behave in relationship to our own imaginings.

 
We’re always in the process of remaking others in our image and with the same qualities and character that we ourselves are comprised of by perceiving them through our mental paradigm. We are always “looking through” our paradigm as our perceptual lens, and reorganize everything to be understood, explained, and described using our paradigm to interpret it as a means of creating our experience of it. While we can say that reality itself is objective and neutral, non-personalized and universal in nature, or as existing primarily without actual meaning, how we experience it turns it into a personification as a subjective reality. We are subject to, and controlled and determined by, our own experience of reality. We’re subject to our own creation as our perception that’s a fundamental illusion that ultimately becomes delusional because we live out of it as if it’s true, and create in error as a result.

eye

Within the natural realm where experience comes as a bodily sensation, emotion is the common denominator and the means of transmitting information across space and time. We receive information as emotions from other people and all sentient beings. Emotions form a language based on direct experience. It doesn’t communicate through specific thoughts, but rather by stimulating the same emotions in us, which determine what we think based on what we associate to the emotion, and how we relate the feelings to memories of various sorts. The emotions being communicated don’t make us think the specific thoughts of the individual putting them off, but causes us to think the same “type” of thoughts. While the thoughts associated to the emotion may be different from one individual to another, they act to express the emotions as a thought-process or memory that becomes the template for producing a behavioral dynamic as an outward expression.

 
Emotions are very compulsive, and create an inner activity that produces immediate, automatic, and reactive behaviors. Emotional charges of any kind produce an instant and equivalent reaction that renders us unconscious as we’re doing it. We don’t think about how we’re feeling and what we’re doing, we just act in an outburst or instant reaction, and serve to amplify and increase the emotion by becoming the channel for it. We allow the emotion to come through us, acting it out as an unconscious behavior, which causes a direct effect. Our emotional reactions, like any action, are creative in nature, and draw immediate as well as long-term consequences. They create a powerful experience that’s impacting, often to the point of being somewhat traumatizing, for both ourselves and others who are at the butt of our behaviors. Whatever we allow to “come through us”, we act as the channel for, that simultaneously shapes us and forms the basis for our life experiences as an accumulative affect that plays out over extended periods of time. This is a basic form of karma.

wormhole

Emotions are a natural part of the instinctual field of the Earth, and are designed to work through the subconscious mind, which is the level of the mind we share with the animal kingdom, that serves to prompt automatic behaviors. This is a bit of a challenge with humans, who have the ability to think and make-up things by imagining them, and who begin thinking in response to emotions, creating whole imagined realities out of the emotions they’re experiencing. Fear is designed to prevent action or move us away from danger of some sort, which is what it does to animals, who as soon as the danger passes no longer feel the fear. With humans, when we feel fear, we begin thinking fearful thoughts and running imaginary scenarios through our mind as situations that intensify or give us more of the same type of fear. Even when the fear as an actual danger is past, we have trouble shaking the feeling, and continue thinking about and imagining fearful thoughts. When we feel emotional pain of some sort, we build whole imagined realities out of our pain, and keep experiencing it over and over by running those thoughts through our mind, conditioning ourselves to it as a common way of thinking and feeling that keeps us in a constant state of pain.

 
Whatever emotion we’re experiencing and indulging in, we’re also radiating and acting to stimulate that same emotion in everyone and everything around us. By stimulating it, we call it forth in them, creating an equivalent emotional state in both, out of which we enter into relationship with them through the shared emotion and it becomes the basis for our interaction, which amplifies and increases it by expressing it to create a joint reality. The joint reality created acts to strengthen the emotional state in both people, and they draw unto themselves the experiences it creates, which shapes who they are as people. Our experiences, created out of an unconscious emotional state become the memory of our soul, which reforms it to those types of realities, tuning it to them as a vibratory frequency, where it continues to create (express) out of the illusions they form.

 
Emotions are readily felt as a distinct feeling sensation in the body just by being in near proximity of someone exuding the emotions. Those who live out of strong emotions that are always controlling them somehow, impose a strong and distinct influence on everyone around them, by activating in them the same emotions. The language of the body and subconscious mind is emotional in nature and provides us with information about our environment that adjusts our “inner state” to match that of the “outer state” preparing us to deal with whatever it is we need to deal with. The fundamental law that governs evolution as a developmental process is a constant exchange of information as qualities and levels of consciousness with our environment. We take in and assimilate the energy and essence that surrounds us, adjusting us to the same molecular state as our surroundings preparing us for what’s coming and what we need to do to interact and survive in it. The mind exists in a basic state of anticipation and readiness. It’s always receiving information as a form of communication with everything around us by how we’re being stimulated emotionally, and how we’re acting to stimulate others through the emotions that are motivating our behaviors and how we’re perceiving our situation through the filter of our emotions.

vp eye

Once we understand this, we can realize that emotions aren’t our enemy, as some believe, but rather our greatest tool for communicating below the level of awareness. By bringing our emotions under control, and being able to perceive them from an objective perspective as information about whoever is projecting them by expressing through them, we can recognize the reality those people live out of and communicate through. By seeing and sensing what their mental model is and how they create their realities by the emotions they allow to operate through them, we can learn how to effectively communicate with them through the language of their emotions using their model as the premise for illustrating it in a way they’ll easily understand. By being able to look at emotions from an objective, neutral perspective, by not letting them take hold “in us” and submerge us in the delusion that acts as the vehicle for transmission, we can see them as revealing information about the person transmitting them.

 
We can develop the ability to use emotions to communicate by realizing their powerful ability to produce actions. We can learn to step into emotional states, and express through them knowing that we’re penetrating people’s mind through the emotion which enters them without their awareness of what’s happening, where they readily take on the necessary state to automatically accept and act on the ideas attached to them. Emotions are the field that transmits information, the carrier wave that injects that idea as a suggestion into their subconscious mind, where it takes hold and begins developing by how they think about. How they think about it, and how they develop the idea into a personal reality, is based on the emotion attached to it. The emotion shapes the idea to be a reality that expresses the emotion and gives us more of the same feeling. Emotions exist in direct relationship to thoughts, and together shape an idea into an inner reality that then becomes the basis for an outer reality by how they project it and act on the idea through the behaviors they employ in response to it.

 
Emotions are the motivating forces of the material world, and are either controlling us without our awareness, or we can learn how to control them. By bringing natural forces under control, we can use them as tools for creating, by intentionally and deliberately using them to influence the minds of others, by operating through their subconscious mind. We can use emotions to deliver suggestions that operate at the subliminal level, and work through the same principles that govern hypnosis and the larger idea of brain-washing the masses. Any content delivered through a strong emotion enters the mind without resistance, takes hold, and begin commanding their will by controlling their thoughts. We don’t need to “act on them” by giving them further instruction through suggestions on “how to develop” the idea, we simply need to make sure we’ve connected it to the proper emotion by how we deliver it. The emotion connected to the idea will determine how they think about it, what they reference and associate to it, that will form it as an analogy or variation as a personalization, while still holding true to expressing the idea as the reality inherent in the emotion as an experience.

universal

The mind has the ability to control and utilize the Elemental forces of Nature, of the natural world, that are primarily what we experience as emotions that contain whole realities in them as a self-organizing quality that shapes reality by how we perceive it. We “see though” our emotions, and only see what matches our emotions, and can be shaped into the story our emotions tell as living realities. These natural forces also have the ability to control the mind of the soul by determining how we use our creative capacity of thought, which shapes the Astral Light into conceptualized realities in the imagination, that become the perceptual lens that we look through and use to create our experiences by how we interpret the outer reality to tell the same story.

 
Thought and emotion are always connected and synchronized, one is impregnated with the other, it’s purely a question of orientation – are the thoughts commanding the emotions, or are the emotions commanding the thoughts? The plane of thought and emotion are parallel and operate by reverse laws on their individualized planes. On the upper universal plane of pure ideas as the potential (whole ideas) that forms thought, thought is active and emotions are passive. Thought invokes emotion in response to it. On the lower plane of emotion, thoughts are passive and emotions are active. Emotions control and determine how we think and what we think about. On the material plane thought is nearly always a response to emotion. By gaining the ability to take conscious control of this process, and orientate ourselves to the higher plane of thoughts and ideas, we can control and regulate our emotional states by employing intentional thoughts that automatically invoke in us their emotional equivalent. By stepping into an idea and allowing the emotions associated to it take affect, we can see the emotional state that’s the natural equivalent of the thought. We can then know what types of emotions are naturally attached to certain types of thoughts, and we obtain “formulas” for transferring ideas through emotional expressions.

 
Thought itself, which is usually formed out of memory of some sort, differs with every person, but emotions are universal and something we all share in common. While our thoughts and ideas may not invoke the same emotional response in others, because thoughts are individual based largely on personal memories, emotions are thematic and act to produce imagined realities as the type of memories associated to that emotion. This thematic quality of emotions gives them a universal appeal because it determines the “type” of thoughts we think, and what type of realities we imagine based on the memories associated to the emotion. Our experiences are a combination of thought and emotion that form a unified reality as their combined outward expression. Because we come into this world in a primarily subconscious state, which forms our programming as memories that are largely emotionally based, where we experience an emotion in a life situation that we then form into a story as the expression of the emotion that makes it mean something, associating that type of idea to the emotion, which forms the memory as apart of a larger reference system. Anytime thereafter that same emotion is stimulated in us, we associate it to the same type of idea as the memory which produces a thought-process that tells the same type of story about what’s happening and becomes the basis for re-creating it by acting it out as an experience of reality. So while they may have a different memory attached to the emotion, it still creates the reality inherent in that emotion that’s consistent to the theme of the emotion. If the emotion being communicated through is “sad” and causes them to feel sad, they’ll recall the memories in which they felt sad, and use those memories to recreate a similar experience. They’ll think sad thoughts and see around them only what matches that feeling and can be used to tell the same type of story. Likewise, a feeling of enthusiasm and excitement causes them to access whatever ideas and memories that were created out of a state of excitement, and they think the same type of thoughts applying them to the present.

So the real communication, the one that’s universal in nature, is the emotional content of the communication, which comes through how we’re communicating it with our whole being; our physiology, gestures, tone of voice, facial expressions, timing and emphasis, and so on. The emotional content is the actual transference of information as associated ideas, that, while it allows for individual association of thoughts, it always organizes thoughts into the same theme of the emotion, and what thoughts they imagine in response to the emotion, will still act to express the emotion as a personification of a universal theme. What’s individualized on the higher realm of pure thought is universal on the lower realm of emotion. And what’s universal or shared in common on the emotional plane, is individualized on the higher realm of thought. Again, the universal and individual operating as opposites that are complementary, as active and passive elements of the same thing.

 
So the first step in self-mastery is learning how to control our emotional reactions, and in doing so, become aware of what memories you have associated with those emotions, and what internal realities they serve to activate in you as your unconscious and automatic reaction, where the emotion controls you, and you’re being controlled by others and your environment. First by refraining from reacting to emotional triggers, while turning your awareness inward and becoming aware of what’s happening inside of you and what memories you begin thinking about (as a theme) because of the emotion being activated that becomes the basis for a pattern of automatic behavior as an unconscious reaction. By practicing self-reflection you can begin becoming aware of the true nature of emotions, and how they keep you living out of the past as automated behaviors that keep producing the same type of realities that produce the same type of consequences. Through this awareness you can realize how emotions act to engage and control you. By becoming self-aware you can begin realizing that the emotional states of others only affect you if you let them. If you remain unaware of the nature of emotional charges as the projection or transmission of electrical currents being put off by others, and how you act to naturally receive them and become infected with them then you continue to create your life experiences without direct awareness of what’s happening. You can begin to realize how the emotions and realities being projected by others are an expression of their paradigm and have nothing to do with you, unless of course, you let it by taking it on as your own and cooperate in acting it out with them.

Through this awareness you can begin neutralizing emotions, while still maintaining an awareness of them, and be able to receive and discern the information about others they communicate, without letting them take hold and begin controlling you. Once you reach this state of being able to view and interpret emotions from an objective, non-personal perspective, whole new worlds open up and self-control becomes something that’s easy to do. And even when you get momentarily caught up in an emotional reaction being projected at you, you can catch your self midstream, and back out of it by diffusing it, and begin taking back control of our own thoughts and actions. Through this practice alone you can regain your ability to create in a more deliberate and intentional way, creating with a sense of purpose in what you do with an awareness of the consequences it renders and the series of events it sets into motion as a result.
