One of the
most fundamental spiritual errors we make in life is in believing that we are
the personality of our body and conditioning. As a human soul born into an animal
body, we acquire the physical characteristics and ancestral memory that’s inherent
in our genes. Our genetic makeup bestows us with the basic tendencies that are
then developed by our family dynamics (those who share the same tendencies) as
our formative conditioning that serves to birth our initial identity (ego).
Through our formative conditioning we form a story about our self that becomes
our life theme. As we grow into adults we take over the process of continuing
to condition ourselves by living out of the same story. We usually do this
without ever realizing that the only reason it holds true for us is because we continue
to live our life as though it’s true. Many people (actually most), firmly
believe that they “are” their personality as they were shaped by others and
society, and have no real ability to change themselves. They live their entire
life without ever realizing that they’re actually the “story-teller” and one
that’s producing the reality of their story, rather than a mere consequence of the
As we come into this life and our soul acquires the qualities of our genetic makeup, we’re initially shaped by others and outside forces to strengthen and develop certain qualities while others remain latent and underutilized. We exist as children in a predominately unconscious state (of hypnosis) where we readily take in and internalize whatever consciousness is actively being expressed and demonstrated all around us. Whatever dynamics we’re apart of as a family structure, we become programmed with, and they serve to form the foundation for the story we begin telling ourselves as a means of making sense of things as we begin developing our conscious mind (between 8 and 21 years).
Our personality is formed from an unconscious state as a form of hypnotic programming that lays the foundation as a life theme for our identity to spontaneously emerge through our conscious development. As we begin thinking for ourselves and forming our own ideas about things (somewhere around puberty) we take over our own unconscious programming as our internal dialogue and the perceptual filters that we use for producing all of our experiences. We take over where our family left off, and our parent’s voice becomes our own internal voice and the means through which we interpret things to give them meaning through the story we begin telling ourselves about them. Our conditioning forms the basis for all of our initial internal dialogue as our means of thinking and processing information to form a consistent experience of our self, others, and the world around us. Out of this initial story-line as a life theme we consciously begin developing our identity by the roles we naturally take on and play through the relationship we form with the outer world and our life circumstances.
All of our
primary memories are formed from significant emotional events in our life that
had a strong impact of some kind that altered us in some way. The emotional
impact came at a time when we couldn’t rationalize it in an objective manner,
and so we processed the experience internally by making it all about us. As a
child we perceive ourselves as being one with our family unit and haven’t yet
developed the mental capacity to see ourselves as sovereign individuals.
Whatever we hear being said about us by others around us we accept as being
true without questioning it, and form beliefs about our self as a result. Through
a basic form of hypnotic suggestion we’re given (subliminally programmed with)
the same values, attitudes, perspectives, beliefs, emotional states, and
behavioral dynamics as our family unit. We always shape ourselves to be just
like our family, or what we imagine to be the opposite (relate or contrast),
but either way, we still form ourselves by way of our family.
As we grow
older we fall into a very specific and pronounced role within that dynamic and
we begin developing ourselves based on what we’ve been taught to believe about
ourselves and the way things are. Whatever other people say about us when we’re
a child acts as a creative directive (hypnotic suggestion) for our subconscious
to produce as a reality. The beliefs we form about ourselves as a child become
our “core beliefs” out of which we form all of our other beliefs as a
correlation, and ultimately becomes a form of “self-fulfilling prophecy”. What
we call our soul’s “destiny” is usually the result of our conditioning as our “false
By the time our conscious and self-aware mind develops fully (around 21 to 28 years old), where we develop the powers of reasoning, discernment, and the ability to logically analyze things, and we separate emotionally from our parents and begin seeing our self as an individual, we’re already programmed and take over the process of conditioning (creating) ourselves by continuing to live out of our past. We continue to see ourselves and process our experiences as we’ve been taught to through our conditioning, and the voice of those who judged and criticized us becomes our own internal voice that we continue playing over and over in our mind.
How we Shape Ourselves
We all have
a tendency to only live out of a handful of memories that we use as the means
of constructing our story about ourselves and our life. These are the memories
that had the greatest impact on us, and that we use in a continuous fashion to
shape ourselves accordingly. There are many other memories that we could use
that would contradict our story, or tell a different type of story altogether,
but we choose to ignore and exclude those, and often, over time, forget them
completely. This natural ability to select the memories that we use to build
our life story out of is a demonstration of our soul’s true ability to create
itself, but of course we usually fail completely to realize “how” our mind is
operating to “create”, and focus instead on the conditioned content as what we’ve
been taught to think and feel. We don’t know how to recognize the laws by which
our mind works to create an image of ourselves “as” a certain type of person,
and believe instead in the illusion of our own making.
experience of this as a realization came from a basic form of inner guidance
that called me on my own story about things. One of the feelings I always had
as a kid was that nobody knew me as I really am, and judged me instead to be
the same as my family, which I was nothing like in the most basic sense. As a
young adult I moved to a town where nobody knew me or my family, and as I was
getting ready to walk through the doors of a restaurant I was working at, it
seemed like a kind of metaphor for walking into a new reality, and a voice
inside said . . . okay Linda, you’re always saying that people don’t know you
for who you really are, so who are you? The only thing that people are going to
know about you here is what you choose to tell them. No one knows anything
about your past or what you’ve been through. And I decided at that point that I
wasn’t going to talk about my past or my family.
What I immediately noticed is how people looked at me and how they treated me based on being myself. I felt a kind of heaviness had been lifted from me, and a strange, newfound freedom. Like I was standing in front of a blank canvas and deciding what I was going to create. I had a blank piece of paper where I could write whatever story I wanted to. As a result of never talking about my past and deciding I was going to create myself in a conscious manner, I began forgetting about the past and over time thought about it less and less. As I no longer chose to dwell in memories of the past, I began feeling different about myself and my life. My personal growth during this time was phenomenal and I slowly began transforming myself into a completely new type of person. The person I consciously decided to be.
later, when I finally opened up and talked briefly about my childhood and what
I went through growing up, people that knew me were shocked. They had no idea
and thought I had come from a well-to-do family, had an extensive education,
and was nurtured as a child by loving parents. As time went on, many years
later, when I would talk about the crazy stuff we did as kids (I had 3 older
brothers), instead of talking about it as abuse and tragedy, I decided I was
going to embody the outlook and attitude of two of my favorite fictional
characters, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, and I re-told the stories of my
past in a humorous and adventurous way. All of my stories about running away,
hoping trains to who knows where, and living in forts on the streets became
exciting adventures of exploration and freedom. I retold the exact same
experiences from and entirely different perspective, and as a result changed
the memories themselves in terms of how I “experienced” them and how I felt about
myself as a result. I literally recreated myself using the same memories as
life events while experiencing them in a whole new way. This was my first
lesson in the art of self-transformation.
Now, as a
fully mature person who has lived many lives in the course of this life and
personality, I hardly ever talk about my past or myself in the general sense,
and instead practice being present, talk about ideas and what my life is about
currently. I’ve grown so much in terms of my ability to create myself
intentionally that I don’t even relate to the little girl in my memories
anymore. Many people see me as mysterious and a bit hard to get to know,
without realizing that it’s because I no longer choose to live from my
unconscious conditioning of the past, and instead identify with my true self as
a universal being that’s the “storyteller” and the one creating the reality
rather than the hypnotized personality still living out of the past and how I
was shaped by others.
in life isn’t to “heal from the past” by going through years of therapy where
you “work through the issues of your past”, which usually only causes you to
become even more identified with your past and the need to tell about “what
happened to you” as a means of explaining why you’re the way you are. It comes
instead through realizing who you really are as a soul and identifying instead
with being the one who’s doing the creating by way of the story you keep telling
yourself and others, often referred to as “your truth”. It’s detaching from
your own past memories formed as a child when you had no real self-awareness
and assuming the position of being the one who’s creating an image of yourself
and producing the reality of your life “as” that story. You decide that you no
longer need to keep telling that story as an expression of who you are, and you
let go of it as a result. You no longer present yourself through the stories of
your past and realize instead that you can create in the present whatever
experience of yourself you want to by simply choosing to operate your own mind
and imagination in an intentional manner.
think of as our “self” is formed out of memories. Our memories only remain
alive if we continue to give them life in the present by constantly reliving
them in our imagination. To change the self, you have to change the memories
that serve to form it. All memories are actually something we create by how we
interpret the events of our life out of whatever emotional state we were in at
the time. By constantly reliving the memories over and over keeps us locked
into the same emotional states. Whatever memory we play out and the emotion it
keeps us infused with forms all of our natural perceptions, behaviors, and activities.
You don’t change a memory by reinterpreting it to give it new meaning, but by “experiencing”
the same event from a different perspective and attitude that causes you to “feel
different” and elicits a different emotion in response to it. We evolve and
transform ourselves by re-imagining our life experiences. All will to create
lies in masterful use of your own imagination.
sciences the number 11 represents the principle of universal justice as the
equilibrium of complementary opposites to establish balance and harmony. It’s
symbolic of what’s commonly called “karma” as the absolute law of cause and
consequence, also referred to traditionally as the “golden rule”. Its purpose
is to teach and instruct us through our own actions which produce both
immediate and long term consequences as our ability to create our reality. This
is a double “1” (Monad) as the balancing scales that brings an equal or greater
return on all our actions and deeds. It represents our ability to learn from
our own actions and the inward capacity for self-direction and regulation. In
the “Book of Formation”, the special action assigned to Justice is “work or
action” that’s designed to teach and instruct.
Justice is represented by Libra, ruled by Venus, which governs the inner world of the imagination (Key 3), where our subconscious deductions from experience become the seeds of karma, and forms the basis for all of our actions. As we create through our own actions and deeds, we simultaneously learn and provide ourselves with a form of instruction. Through purely unconscious processes we form constant interpretations of experiences that produce all of our natural perceptions and automatic behaviors. How we perceive ourselves and the outer world comes through our personal style for processing and organizing information, which forms the basis for all of our actions. Our mental model as our perceptual lens is formed initially as the result of our formative conditioning as mental states, dynamic patterns, and tendencies that have become habitual.
Mode of Consciousness
The mode of
consciousness associated with Justice (karma) is “faithful intelligence”. The
subconscious is a faithful servant to the conscious mind and produces the
realization of whatever idea it’s germinated with. The feminine aspect of the
mind is impregnated with the seed (idea) of the masculine aspect and produces
the reality of the idea as its offspring. This not only reveals to us that most
creations result from habitual unconscious patterns, but also that whatever it
is that we imagine as a reality with intensity, is actually a “request” for a
personal creation. We act on ourselves to program our own subconscious through
imagining ideas as an actual reality and experience, “instructing” it (our
self) to produce more experiences of the same nature and kind. As we replay
memories over and over in our mind, we’re instructing our subconscious to
produce more of the same types of reality, usually without realizing (being aware)
that that’s why we have the same type of experiences over and over again.
Vices or virtues are equally deposited in the faithful intelligence of the subconscious where they augment. As we interject an idea into our subconscious by vividly imagining it with sensory detail, it gestates until it becomes the foundation out which we perceive the same idea outwardly as its realization. The subconscious faithfully reproduces and multiplies whatever idea it’s given as an imagined reality that’s experienced in an emotionally intense way. It uses existing memory as a kind of metaphorical theme for creating more of the same type of realities. It takes a symbolic idea in its potential form and ripens it to become the motive for our actions. As we create ideas as an outer realization through a form of projection that produces a new variation through a process of adaptation, we then reabsorb them through the experience they provide and shape them into memories that act in turn to reprogram ourselves with more of the same type of experiences. All reality is subjective in nature and is formed as a self-perpetuating process of self-realization.
The Law of Cause and Effect
manifest by effects, and effects are proportioned to their causes. All action is
a cause that produces an equivalent effect. Nothing is affirmed or made real until
it appears outside of us as a realization. We apprehend the cause of our own
actions by the effects contained in the energy of the cause, by means of the
Universal Law of Correspondence and Analogy. Once an idea is established as an
outer effect that brings realization, the effect then becomes a cause that
produces an equivalent effect “in us” through the experience it provides. All
of our deepest motives are revealed through the reality they create as the
nature of our experiences. It’s not necessarily the idea itself that provides a
creative template for the subconscious, but rather what internal force is “motivating”
us in creating the idea. The conscious mind provides the material form as an
idea, and the subconscious infuses and grows it with an equivalent emotional
force, and together they form the “reason” for the creation.
The Law of the Monad (Mind and Soul) demonstrates the principle of how the inner center (nature) produces the outer sphere of reality to be of the same nature through an electromagnetic respiration as an outflow and inflow of consciousness that creates on multiple levels and scales simultaneously. Magnetic respiration is where the inner nature of motives that produce outer actions populates the atmosphere surrounding it, providing it with a reflection of itself through its own works. Through our own creative abilities, we create either heaven or hell for ourselves. There’s always an electromagnetic pulsation of the soul where it projects itself to formulate its outer reality, constructing it to be of the same nature (pattern) as it is. As it forms the realization of itself through its outer environment, it then draws the realization back into itself where it’s reformulated into a memory. Our core being is what forms our perception as interpretations that provide us with the means for experiencing our self. All of what we call curses or blessings are self-administered and produce their consequences invariably, and every action by its nature produces effects analogous to its motives, extent, and direction.
Thought, Word, and Deed
that aren’t translated into speech don’t produce realization, and speech that’s
not backed by action remains idle as imagined fantasy. Ideas are only made “real”
when they are acted on to produce outer experiences as the realization of the
idea. Many people form a false image of themselves that they never act on to
make real, and it results in a form of delusion as a false front disguised to
hide their true nature. Thought formulated into speech forms the basis for the action
necessary to produce it as an outer realization. The realization gained from an
action reveals what motivated it.
hide their true motives (often even to themselves) out of fear of what it means
about them, and try to cover them up with false proclamations that act to contradict
their actions. What we say doesn’t reveal anything about us; it’s what we do
that demonstrates our true character. What we act to create in life only comes
through our actions, not idle thoughts as fantasies that only serve to delude
us. Whether vice or virtue, destructive or constructive, we are fully responsible
for anything we say or do, and the realities that result from them. There is no
such thing as indifferent acts.
Justice signifies active administration of law as balance, poise, expectation, precision, impartiality, and equity. It’s not based on value judgments of right and wrong, or good and bad, but merely serves to reveal the inner constitution as what motivates actions. Every action has a motive as a subconscious formulated interpretation. As we think, speak, and act, we create the reality of our motives, which serves as a mirror into unconscious aspects of ourselves. Our subconscious is programmed initially through our formative conditioning, which forms the basis for all of our motives, interpretations, and natural behaviors. As we perceive something through our mental model we reformulate it by saying “this means that”, referencing and associating it to a memory of a previous experience of a similar nature, and we act accordingly. Through our conditioning we act on ourselves to repeat the same patterns as a habitual way of perceiving and create the same type of experiences over and over again.
Our Life Story as a Theme for
memories serve to form our natural way of perceiving the world and sets the
stage for the story we begin telling ourselves as a means of using the past to
interpret the present to mean the same thing. The meaning we give something
determines how we experience it through the story we tell ourselves about it. Our
story about something is how we explain, describe, and justify it as a means of
attempting to understand it. As we create the outer realization of our thoughts
and motives as an experience of our own making, we then become subject to them.
We use our own self-produced experiences to shape ourselves by how we identify
with our own creation as an ongoing story we’re always in the process of
telling ourselves about things. In this manner, we’re always shaping everything
else to be like us.
By realizing that our outer realizations are providing us with a mirror into our own unconscious mind, we can become more self-aware. Anytime we bring something that’s operating at the unconscious level in our life into conscious awareness, we provide ourselves with the opportunity to transform it in whatever way we desire. By staying unaware and repeating the thematic patterns of our conditioning, we live our life out of karma and remain unconscious of our true nature and our ability to self-create by way of our own realizations. We fail to realize that we’re not our personality or conditioning, but the “means” through which it becomes our reality. Our soul is the author and producer of our life story as the means of simultaneously creating and experiencing itself by way of its own creation. We are the soul that’s producing reality through our perception of it, not the result of an objective reality that’s somehow being done to us by an outside force or contrary power.
By becoming self-aware and using our outer realizations as a mirror into the hidden aspects of our mind, we can step into our true power to self-create by learning how to seed our subconscious with ideas we want to create as our outer experience of reality. We can realize our own undesirable traits and delusional interpretations and begin acting on ourselves to transform them into more beneficial and meaningful ones. Once we realize that things only mean what we make them mean by how we interpret them, we can detach from our inner narrative as our story about things, and begin forming new ones. Once we become aware of habitual dynamics that we’re drawn into unconsciously as a reaction of some kind, we can begin neutralizing them by re-framing them and making a conscious decision as to what we want to create in their place.
As we become
aware of the patterns produced unconsciously through our conditioning, just the
awareness alone dissolves them, and we’re left with a new awareness of our
ability to make a decision as to how we’re going to create instead. As we begin
making new decisions and actively directing our subconscious on what we want it
to create, we begin taking full responsibility for our self and our life. Our
inner core as our nature and character is what acts to produce our outer
perception of reality and our “self” through that reality.
ourselves as our inner character, we change the reality it naturally produces as
a fundamental form of self-expression. We don’t change our life by working on
others and the outer effects themselves, but by working on ourselves as the
inner cause that’s producing the outer effect as a basic form of self-perception.
As we begin working on ourselves to reshape our character and redirect underlying
motives, our outer reality and perception of others changes as a direct correspondence.
Justice as the harmonious balance of the inner with the outer is a
self-administered form of creation. In every moment we are the sole creators of
both our self and our perception of others, and our inner and outer reality,
which exist in polarity as complementary to each other. The outer is an
extension and continuation of the inner and contains both conscious and
unconscious aspects of our self. We can come to know the unknown aspects of
ourselves by how they exist in relation to the known aspects, both of which
form the basis of our outer perception of reality.
spiritual development can seem a bit elusive because we’re often not clear on
the difference between acquiring knowledge in its theoretical form and bringing
it into practice as a means of “creating ourselves” by way of it. Many people
can discuss what we can think of as “spiritual ideas” in a fairly intelligent
way based on what they’ve learned through studying other people’s ideas, yet
have no idea how to “apply it” in terms of “becoming it” as a practice and developing
themselves through the experience it brings. We only truly learn (live and earn)
through experience, and we only truly know what we actively demonstrate.
attempt to understand what we deem higher knowledge, we can then haphazardly take
the approach of denying or excluding some aspects of our self that we deem to
be of our lower nature, while trying to more fully utilize what we consider to
be of our “higher nature”. We take the “divide and conquer” approach, instead
of the “unite and empower” approach to our own well-being. Some deny and shun
their physical existence in favor of some form of idea they consider higher or
superior in some way. Some believe all they have to do is be able to recite
ideas as theory without ever having to actually employ them in the practical
sense as a means of producing whatever it is it claims to produce. These various
approaches result from a basic confusion as to the actual purpose of life and
the creative power of the soul to create not only itself, but also its
perception and experience of reality.
The soul is equivalent to the Self and utilizes a physical manifestation as the means of growing and transforming itself to different states and ways of being. The “self” is not developed in the most basic sense (energetic) by material possessions and status, but through the qualities we embody and become that forms our character as a way of being in the world. It’s only the qualities and ideas we embody and develop into a habit through consistent practice that becomes a natural part of us. By repeating a process or attitude enough times, we “build it into our muscle” (subconscious), so to speak, where it becomes intuitive. With enough daily practice it becomes a natural part of our awareness and being as an unconscious and automatic perception and behavior. We acquire it as a form of skill and instinct where we do it naturally without having to think about it.
isn’t formed out of intellectual concepts that we preach and profess but never
actually bring into practice. It’s only what we embody and “become one with” as
a channel of expression that we become like in essence. It becomes a natural
part of us and we perceive it in everything around us while doing it as a
natural part of our personality. This is expressed through the axiom “you know
them by their deeds”. It’s not what we say that reveals who we are, but what we
do. Being and doing are extensions of the same thing. Our actions reveal our consciousness
as a coherent state of being.
soul leaves or discards the body, it absorbs all the experiences it produced
and acquired through the body, and they’re integrated into the mental paradigm
of the soul as qualities that form our disposition, temperament, moral
character, and natural tendencies. Some believe that all you have to do is
imagine ideas, going on the fact that the subconscious doesn’t know the
difference between an actual event and an imagined one, while failing to
realize that the imagination is the means through which we program the
subconscious with ideas that we want it to produce as part of our perception
and form natural behaviors out of.
Most imaginary scenarios aren’t effective because most don’t know how to actually imagine something as a full sensory experience that elicits a desirable emotional response. Some repeat affirmations as a verbal script or saying that they think is the means for programming their subconscious, yet the subconscious is “experiential” in nature and is only “programmed” by an idea that’s turned into a full sensory reality as a direct experience in the imagination. The subconscious is also “emotionally driven”, which means that it moves towards pleasure and away from pain. As we form the desired reality in our mind as a representation, we have to present it in a way that naturally invokes a very positive and compelling emotion. If we portray it with any form of stress, fear, or anxiety associated to it, our subconscious will receive it as an idea to avoid, prevent, or move away from.
The Soul and the Faculty of the Mind
The soul can
be thought of as the “mind” which is structured as a paradigm or coherent model
out of accumulated memory that’s been integrated through experience. As we
experience something we form all kinds of realizations around it that we didn’t
know when contemplating it theoretically, and the experience itself is what
“integrates” it into our paradigm through a process of adaptation. Once the
idea becomes an actual memory as part of our paradigm it becomes an inherent
part of our reality. We can only conceive of what we know from direct
experience. The only thing we’re capable of perceiving outside of us is what
can be formed, explained, described, and validated through our mental paradigm.
Until we have an actual experience of something, we can’t truly know it. To have
true knowledge of something is to be intimate with it by “becoming one with it”
in spirit, mind, and body, as the expression of it.
means the soul has for developing itself in an intentional manner is by
“drawing down” and acting to absorb the archetypal ideals and qualities of the
higher, spiritual plane. We do this either consciously through active choice as
to whom we want to become, or unconsciously through reactive behavior born out
of our formative conditioning. The process of personal transformation as a
conscious act of self-creation comes by recognizing the qualities in you that
you’ve developed as strengths that are of what you decide to be an undesirable
nature, often called weaknesses and vices, and choosing to replace them instead
with more positive qualities, referred to as virtues. Vices and virtues are the
negative and positive aspect of any idea that serves to contrast each other as
a means of comparing, defining, and stimulating each other into existence. We
can only know “hot” by how it exists in relationship it to what we consider
“cold”, both of which are “temperatures” of the same thing separated only by
degrees that move along a sliding scale from one extreme to another.
All qualities exist in a polar state as complementary opposites of the same idea. They exist as extremes of each other with a form of gradual movement along a scale that moves from one extreme to another. Fear and courage are qualities that oppose yet complement each other. When we’re experiencing fear of some kind, we have a choice to either respond with courage or cowardice. We can transform fear by choosing to embody courage in relation with it. When we’re scared and feel afraid, we polarize ourselves to the energetic state of fear and act naturally to attract and encounter situations that elicit more fear. Whatever “state” (mental and emotional) we exist in we act to multiply it through an accumulative process.
Fear causes us to stop, shut down and avoid what’s causing it, usually not taking any constructive action while being mentally controlled by the fear. This provides us with the ideal situation to “choose” to be either courageous or a coward. As we step into the fear with a sense of brave sense of conscious awareness, the fear begins steadily subsiding until it dissolves, and is replaced by a feeling of empowerment. The more we do this, the more courageous and confident we become and the less afraid and insecure. It’s not what happens to us in life that serves to shape us, but how we choose to respond to what happens through the relationship we form with it.
spiritual development comes by way of our soul’s recognition that it has the
ability to self-create by way of acting on itself to transform vices as
weaknesses into virtues as strengths. It comes through how we develop our
character through our ability to actively choose what qualities as a state of
consciousness we’re going to become and use as the means of experiencing
ourselves. The soul creates itself through how it creates its own experiences
of life. We are always the one creating our experiences, and naturally form
them out of our perceptions. All intentional creation comes through our ability
to become self-aware and form realizations around our true nature that provides
us with the basis for making new decisions as to how we’re going to enter into
relationship with life. As we make new decisions and begin willfully acting
them out, we set a new pattern into motion that acts to transform an existing
pattern as unconscious tendencies.
creation comes by developing our self through universal archetypes as qualities
and ways of being that shape us to be a certain type of person who naturally
lives a certain type of life as our “story”. Mythology of the gods is what
provides us with the psychological tools necessary to be able to tell whatever
type of story we have an inclination towards and true desire to tell. Once we
realize how we want to be, we can recognize all the tendencies we have that are
preventing or counteracting it, and can act on ourselves in a deliberate manner
to transform them.
becomes habit as a natural way of being is carried forward after the death of
the body. Our material status and worldly success is meaningless outside of how
we developed our character by way of them. In this way, having an easy life
with no serious challenges can be a detriment to our spiritual growth and cause
complacency. It’s not the circumstances of our life that matters, but only who
we choose to become in relationship with and by way of them.
All of what
we call the “major systems” of Spiritual Sciences are correlated with each
other and form a dynamic series of correspondences that serve as the means for
interpreting the principles that they all share in common. All actual or true
spiritual knowledge as “higher knowledge” is based on a practical understanding
of laws and principles. All material systems as organized elements that form
what we perceive as reality are shaped (organized, ordered, and structured),
held together as dynamic patterns, and animated as behavior by universal
The primary difference between natural laws that govern the material world and universal laws are that the universal produce the physical as an offspring or correspondence, and physical laws can be “over-ridden” and transformed by universal ones, which are “causal” (creative) in nature. Natural laws explain how systems operate and behave once they come into existence, whereas universal laws are what give rise to the physical systems themselves through an act of true creation. Universal laws are of the mind and soul, while physical laws describe the natural activities that the material forms created by the mind take on as behaviors.
The fundamental means of creation come by 3 primary forms of expression: numbers, letters, and words. The numbers used in any system are not a means of counting, but represent principles and how they exist in relationship with each other to form a whole. Numbers are interpreted as principles that are correlated with letters and words, and together form a whole system of correspondences as sounds, colors, symbols, geometric shapes, planets, archetypes, and metaphorical ideas, and so on, that are all of the same “nature” as a quality of consciousness or state of mind. Our mental state is what forms our vibratory frequency as a dynamic metaphorical pattern that then forms our perceptual lens that’s used for shaping our material reality to be of the same pattern on a larger and more inclusive level.
The “causal plane” of the mind exists as a “singularity”, and in the system of Numerology the Laws that it’s comprised of are represented by the single digits of 0 through 9, with 10 being 1 on a higher scale or octave. All multiple digit numbers are reduced to a single digit that reveals the primary principle involved. All combinations of numbers construct a formula that demonstrates the relationships involved between the active principles. Numbers are philosophically interpreted to find their meaning as the principles that are active and expressing to create in any material formation. The principles that are actively demonstrated through the numbers involved provide us with instructions as a formula for working with them in the practical sense. The 10 primary Universal Laws are purely energetic (mental) in nature and serve to give explicit instructions on how to use our “mind” to create reality. Reality as we know it is a mental construct that’s formed out of our consciousness as our “perception” of it.

laws (0-2) are actually 1 law with 3 aspects that perform different functions of
the same thing, and are called the “3 in 1 Law”, also referred to as the
Trinity or Triad. The Triad represents the 3-fold nature of the mind, soul, and
self, which also makeup what we perceive as a 3-D reality or hologram. This
primary law reveals the nature of the “Supernal” as being comprised of dual
aspects (masculine and feminine), which combine to form a unified reality. This
3 in 1 Law (0, 1, 2) is considered the “Parental Law” (represented by the Dyad)
as what acts to birth the Triad, represented by 3, which is considered the
first “real” number as the “mental formation” of an idea. It’s real in the
sense that it’s here that an idea is first organized into a light-form in the
faculty of the imagination (inner) and serves as the basis for organizing
material reality (outer) to be of the same pattern as a thematic idea. The
inner and outer are actually a continuation of each other.
Out of the Primal Triad comes its offspring as a mirror image, and births the material world through 7 primary principles. The first “true number” is 3, forming 7 principles that systematically emerge from the Dyad as 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. All proceeding principles maintain their polarized state as a relationship between the inner and outer, self and another, and upper and lower as the means of constructing material reality. There’s a complementary relationship between 3 and 4, 5 and 6, and 7 and 8, which culminates in 9 as a complete and perfected cycle of creation.
The 10 primary
Universal Laws are represented in the Qabalah as spheres of consciousness that
exist in correlated “energetic states” as a creative process that uses
archetypes as unformed (invisible) ideas to produce an equivalent material
reality. This entire creative process is also dual in nature as a movement
between upper and lower planes that provides us with the process for both
formation and transformation. These principles are also represented in the
Tarot as the 22 trump of the Arcanum which provides us with a “key” for
interpreting the 10 primary laws and the 22 Paths of the Qabalah.
The first 11
principles of the Tarot involve formation as a complete cycle, and the second
11 the process for transformation of the original form created to a higher and
more perfected state. The 22 major Arcanum of the Tarot form a dynamic series
of correspondences that correlate with the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet
and can be used for interpreting and deciphering the symbolic “code” inherent
in words and names. The Qabalah has 10 primary and 1 “invisible” sphere (11) that’s
not an actual principle as an operation, but symbolizes instead moving from a
higher plane to a lower one for a total of 11 spheres. These 11 spheres correspond with the 22
archetypes of the Tarot as a descent of spirit into form and then the ascent
back into spirit as the full cycle of creation and transformation.
The 7 Hermetic Principles represent mental states and processes of creation that are energetic in nature and correspond with the 7 chakras of the subtle body (mind), 7 planets of the zodiac, 7 colors of the spectrum, 7 notes of a musical scale, and so on. The key to understanding spiritual principles in terms of being able to accurately interpret them is in understanding the Law of Correspondence, which is the 2nd of the 7 Principles. These principles give us insight and instruction on how to use our mind to create our self and our reality, which are done through the same mental process. Following a metaphorical correspondence to the 7 chakras, the first 3 are immutable (meaning they can’t be changed or transcended), and the 4 that proceed out of them are mutable and can be worked with by using the first 3 to transform them.
exist as a relationship where one lays the foundation necessary for the next to
spontaneously arise out of it as a growth process (the beginning and end as a
continuous cycle). When we’re looking at the principle represented by 3 as the
Triad, it comes as the full expression of 0-2, while still containing the
latent potential of 4-9. The Monad, which is the primary principle of the mind
and soul, contains the seeded potential for all the rest, which it acts to
birth as a process of creation by turning an invisible idea into a material
that are used in spiritual texts and allegories are actually a “code”, which
when interpreted accurately through the formula of principles inherent in the
letters that spell the name, give us great insight into the active forces as an
operation that’s actively expressing through their personality and activities. Throughout
biblical texts there are 72 (9) names of God that are used in the context of various
allegories, which serves as a code that reveals the law as an operation being used
and quality of consciousness being expressed through the nature of the
In a similar manner, any sequences of numbers serve as a formula of principles that together perform a singular operation. While all multiple digits are broken down to a single digit as a primary principle or stage of an overall process, the numbers the formula’s comprised of gives us further clues as to the qualities and relationships involved. Example: 163 = 10 = 1. The 163 gives us insight into the energetic nature of 10, and how it exists in relationship with 1 as a combined function of a particular nature. The 1, 6 and 3 are principles as a relationship or sequence of coordinated activity that acts as instructions for “how to” perform the overall operation represented by 1.
dimensions, dates, coordinates, relationships, symbolic form, colors, sounds,
and so on, are providing us with dynamic formulas as to the “inner nature” (soul)
of something, not as an actual physical description of the object itself. While
we tend to think that the spiritual world is symbolic of the material world,
it’s actually the other way around. The form doesn’t give rise to the life that
inhabits it, it’s the “life” as the soul that acts to shape the form as a
correspondence or symbolic representation of itself. Our soul exists as an archetype
imbued with specific attributes and qualities that form a corresponding
vibration. All vibration is a thematic pattern shaped by a mental image.
Whatever image of ourselves we form we systematically shape others and the
world at large to be of the same image and likeness. The nature of the form
gives us clues as to the nature of the consciousness that first acts to shape
it then animates it with life.
through our inherent (practical) understanding of universal law and principles
and the dynamic system of correspondences that we can accurately decipher the
code hidden in material form as the principles actively operating to create it
and then use it to express through. The chain-of-association that naturally
takes place when we view everything as symbolic is based on our personal
knowledge of attributes and qualities that pertain to specific ideas as
correlations. As with algebra, we can know the unknown parts of any equation by
how they exist in relationship to the known parts. All material form is shaped
as a relationship with its creator.
symbolically refer to as the “serpent power” in esoteric sciences is the Astral
Light of the Formative planes that’s governed by the subconscious. It’s the
universal principle as a subhuman force that builds everything from the inside
out and is controlled and directed through mental means. Serpent power is the
source of all “illusions” created from emotional reactions as instinctual
behaviors that are unconscious and automatic in nature. When this primal force
is tamed, overcome, and directed by mental means, it becomes a primary
instrument of transformation, and ultimately provides us with the secret to
The symbol of the snake eating its own tail
reveals how it feeds on itself as its own emotional reactions by absorbing the
experiences they create, and digesting and assimilating them into its being.
The universal consciousness is eternal, unchanging, and remains forever the
same, while entering into various forms of expression that all feed on one
another as emotional interactions. The icon of the serpent represents emotion,
which is the motivating force of the subconscious that activates complementary
thoughts to produce the reality of the emotions as an unconscious creation.
Habitual realities as a life-theme are created when we live out of the same fixed perceptions and emotional states and the memories we create from them. All creation comes as patterns produced by the vibratory frequency that acts on itself to assemble itself as both an inner and outer reality of the same nature and kind. We bring the formative power of the serpent energy under control by employing the disintegrative forces of Mercury as the conscious direction of mental states. While it operates systematically from an unconscious state, we can use it to consciously create ourselves by selecting and assimilating the right “mental food”.
energy of arousal and passion is represented by Leo, which governs the spine
and nervous currents of the body that can be directed upward through the energy
centers of the body (chakras), activating, and transforming their energetic
frequency into coherent patterns. Leo is exalted in Neptune, sign of water,
which represents the principle of emotion and memory (self-assimilating
patterns as a frequency) that work together to form life. It’s the inner essence
and life giving energy that animates form as its soul and spirit. Spirit as
life-force activates the memory (constitution) of the soul to produce reality
as an experience of itself. The soul not only produces and inhabits its
material body, but also the entire outer reality that emanates from the body as
a projection of memory (perceptual lens) that it uses to create specific types
of experiences of itself.
subconscious works through the creative imagination to generate mental imagery that
serves as a symbolic idea that it lays over the outer reality and uses to
develop detailed realities of the same essence and nature. It takes whatever
thoughts (ideas) we feed it, matches it with a complementary emotion, and
produces an experience of the meaning of our emotional-thoughts as an outer
reality. Our soul uses the experience as a means of simultaneously creating
itself by identifying with its own self-produced realities. It forms an
interpretation of the experience that gives it meaning, then forms a memory of
itself out of the meaning as a kind of metaphorical (universal) idea that can
be used to create more experiences of the same nature by how it’s adapted to
As we direct
our mental focus and concentrate on an idea, we build up forms by organizing
them to create an inner reality as a representation that serves as a memory.
The self-conscious aspect of the mind (active awareness) selects an idea that
it them impresses in the imagination as a metaphor and mental state that’s
developed into a detailed reality by thinking about it in a concentrative
manner. Whatever we choose to focus on, and digest and integrate depends on our
conscious selection of ideas that we then “become one with” in mind and body.
Our self-conscious is what we can think of as the “gatekeeper” that actively
chooses what to let in and serve to “seed” the subconscious with what it “wants”
to create, then acts to witness the offspring of its own mental creation as a
which is dual in nature on every level of existence, works by way of the
holographic principle, where an image is illuminated with the same light source
that remains unadulterated as what witnesses and absorbs its own creation as a
material form. One light source as a concentrated beam is split in two, and one
is impressed and programmed with an image that’s then projected and realized as
a three-dimensional form by the other aspect of the same light source. As we
speak, we simultaneously form the internal image of the meaning of our words in
our imagination, which acts to instruct our subconscious to produce as a
corresponding outer reality as the means for experiencing our own creation.
referred to as the Akasha Field of memory (the Astral Field of Light), or The
Book of Life, acts as a permanent record of all our soul’s creation. We use our
will to direct our subconscious through language and how we construct sentences
to form an idea. As we think about an idea we define it with detail as both
energetic and material attributes. As we speak or think, we call forth the
reality of our words in our mind’s eye, where they’re projected and turned into
a reality as a kind of movie or living scenario. When we combine our intellect
with the forces of Nature in order to create, we impress those forces with
human consciousness, and they become available as memory for others to receive
intelligently utilize the natural forces of the material world by taming the
lion (energies of the body). We tame it by feeding it words as metaphors that
it then uses to articulate and create realities out of. Words organize Astral
Light into forms in the imagination, and are the intelligent medium that
connects all of humanity through the same emotions and mental imagery. The
electrical forces of the world are tamed and modified by humans through speech
and mental imagery. Speech is the universal reverberation that acts
systematically to produce the reality of its meaning. If you change the pattern
as a mental image, you change the reality that results. By infusing an image
with a positive (magnetic) feeling that elicits adoration, courage, and gallantry,
we engage the lion (beast) and it becomes our servant, instead of us being its
The Great Secret of Manifestation
referred to as the great secret of esoteric sciences is that the subconscious
is always in control of every subhuman manifestation of cosmic energy. Every
force in Nature that governs all kingdoms can be directed and utilized by
intelligently using the subconscious. We create in the material world by
directing these forces into ideas. All new elements and creation have their
origin in the mind of man. Ideas become “things” in the external world as a
result of ideas conceived of and developed in the creative imagination that
acts as a seed that’s gestated into a physical form by the subconscious.
always comes as the harmonious union and balanced action of the self-conscious
(masculine) and subconscious (feminine) to produce the reality (first internal
then external) as its offspring. Patterns are selected and set by
self-conscious interpretation of experiences as meaning that’s expressed as a
story we tell by living it as an experience of our self. The subconscious
creates the reality of our thoughts and emotions, which “is” our will to
create. When we speak internally as thoughts that are unconscious in nature,
our will becomes the means through which we employ destructive patterns and we
become as animals that are ignorant of the very laws by which we create. By
understanding this law as the secret to moral strength and accurate use of our
will, we become our own master and begin creating in a more conscious, precise,
and responsible manner.
There are so many ideas being put out into the world right now regarding the idea of soul ascension, raising your vibratory frequency, and what it means to honestly create yourself. Naturally, all of these ideas are referring to the same basic idea as a fundamental change in “state”. This is not an idea that can be realized by simply theorizing and talking about it in what may appear to be a knowledgeable way, but rather something that’s only achieved through the application of knowledge as universal laws through an actual practice of some kind. We only truly acquire knowledge through direct experience, and only truly “know” what we actively demonstrate through our natural perception and behaviors. We only “become” through experience that provides us with the realizations that act naturally to transform us from the inside out. Our inner state and outer reality exist in equilibrium to each other, and together act to produce our “experiences” of reality.
Another misconception that’s being played out by those claiming to know the secret to transformation, is that the work itself as a form of healing process can be done by another or through processes that involve objects, electronic devices and machines, or processes that only involve the physical component of what is already manifest, rather than focusing on the inner nature of the person, their mental model, emotional states, and the beliefs they hold. Some of these practices are done with crystals or stones of some kind, instruments and technological devices that introduce vibration as energetic qualities into the body or brain, or through some other therapeutic process performed by another “on or to us”. Yet, as those of you know who have tried these, very few of these processes produce truly permanent results, or work at the non-material, mental and unified level of the soul.
Only the higher Soul is immortal in
nature and ascends to higher levels when released from the physical body at
death. The Soul, which is the same as the mind, has the ability to determine
its own physical, emotional, and moral nature. No one or no thing can do it for
us. We’re never “healed by another”, and no one has the ability to alter our
frequency as our state of mind permanently, accept us. We are all responsible
for our own Soul’s creation and the reality as a plane of consciousness or
dimension that we exist in naturally. This is because “reality” as we
personally know it, is formed through our “perception of it”, and doesn’t exist
independent of us. All “self-creation” is an internal process that we do to
The only way we truly have of “knowing” something is by becoming “like it” in nature. We become one with an idea by embodying it mentally and physically, where we experience it as it. As we contemplate an idea, we momentarily take it on and become one with it in mind where we structure it as a reality in our imagination, forming a working concept of it or by turning it into a scenario of some kind as the means of seeing (witnessing) what the experience of it would be like. As we conceptualize it and play it out in our mind’s eye, we sense ourselves as being within it, having the experience of it “as it”, forming a kind of intimate relationship with it that provides us with new insights regarding it’s true nature that form the basis for making a decision about it. We’re always deciding what qualities as a state of mind and way of being we’re going to use by expressing them in order to “create ourselves” through the experience of ourselves they provide. Our body serves merely as the vehicle and means for energies to express through as a way of forming certain types of “experiences of our self” which eventually, through consistent expression, form our energetic essence, shape our character (morality), and establish our inner nature.
When we’re operating primarily out of an
unconscious state this all happens naturally and automatically, and we simply
take on and become apart of whatever qualities are being openly expressed
around us and the dynamics they form that we’ve been trained to be a part of.
While we may not have a choice as to what we’re exposed to and played an active
part in as kids, once we become adults and our self-conscious, self-aware mind
begins developing and becoming dominant, we have the ability to see what’s
going on in an objective manner, and make conscious decisions as to what
relationships we foster and maintain, who and what we associate with, what
activities we willingly engage in, and so on. Those who don’t “wake up” and
become self-aware continue to live out of an unconscious, conditioned state
where they feel they have no control or ability to change their life and
continue instead to engage in the beliefs, character and emotional dramas of
their upbringing. Those who readily conform to society and cultural
conditioning without any real awareness of their ability to form realizations,
make new choices, and become self-directed, vibrate at the lower frequencies of
this plane and continue to live in the reality of that level of consciousness
as the means of creating themselves to be “of it”.
When we wake-up to the truth of things
and become aware of who we really are in terms of our ability to discern the
truth as to what’s really going on, and the illusive fact that we’re the only
one creating our experiences and our “self” according to those experiences, and
we detach from the emotional triggers that keep us in an unconscious and
automatic state of being, we can begin fully exercising our ability to disengage
from the illusion of mass consciousness. Once we’ve made this primary decision
for ourselves we can begin making everyday decisions as to who we want to be
and what kind of story we’re going to tell about our life by how we live it.
Once we begin realizing that we were trained to a certain mindset and that it’s not actually “true and real” outside of our natural ability to perceive it and unknowingly cooperate in playing a role in the dynamics that lend themselves to telling a certain kind of story as the means of “co-creating” it, we are no longer drawn into them. We don’t have to go through years of therapy in an attempt to try and work through or resolve the illusion of our own making, because once we truly realize what we’re doing and how it is that we’re doing it, it becomes painfully obvious that it’s not real, and through the realization alone we no longer engage in it and begin making new choices for ourselves instead. As we dissolve illusions of ourselves through self-realizations, we no longer perceive them as real and can clearly see them as being fictitious when being acted out by others.
Challenges, Crisis and Hardship
Another question that always comes up
around the idea of ascending after death to a new and higher plane of
existence, is whether or not a person who has somehow determined themselves to
be a “good person”, living a good life (which is clearly a belief and an
opinion) can ascend without ever being “tried and tested” or going through
severe crisis and moral challenges of some kind. The answer to this is easy to
understand by simply realizing that we only know what out true nature is or
what we’re truly capable of when we’re challenged in serious ways, have some
kind of major life crisis, or are devastated somehow where the very foundation
we relied on for safety and security has been torn away or revealed as being
When experiencing severe loss, we tend
to become grief-stricken and slightly deranged as we desperately scramble for
security. When we can no longer reside in our comfort zone and all that gave us
a feeling of safety and security and that we built our identity around is taken
away or lost, we’re left not knowing who we are or what to do. At this point a
form of panic tends to set in and we resort to what can be desperate means
where we’re more unconscious and irrational than ever before. When someone is
overcome by fear of some kind, we get to see firsthand what parts of their
character have been completely undeveloped due to their “comfortable position”
in life. We only truly know what we’re capable of when we’re being seriously
challenged in life. Our vices as negative and destructive character traits can
only be transformed while they’re active and expressing where we can see what
they actually are and chose in a conscious manner to employ new qualities.
How we feel, perceive life, and behave in a situation that’s easy, comfortable, and has no pressure involved that serves to bring us face-to-face with our greatest fears and insecurities, is quite different than what we experience when being challenged. When our world shatters and we’re left confused and distraught, overwhelmed with inner turmoil and the inability to make a firm decision as to how to proceed, we face the unknown, not only in the world at large, but more importantly, in ourselves, which can seem terrifying. We often only come to realize who and how we truly are when we no longer have anything else to rely on and have to draw on an inner source as the means of making our own decisions regarding every area of our being. A person with an easy life who’s never challenged with hardship of any kind, never gets to see what they’re actually made of or capable of. Many who excel under the right conditions completely fall apart and become vicious and morally destructive under bad and stressful conditions.
In a similar manner, people tend to only
be your friend when you’re engaged in the same reality they are, and as soon as
you face challenges or experience a crisis of some sort, turn on you, try to
tear you down, make you bad or wrong somehow, elevate themselves above you, and
ultimately act to persecute and ostracize you. So those who seemed kind,
gentle, and generous, and always eager to help and encourage you at one point,
based on shared circumstances, are judgmental, ruthless, uncaring, scared,
mean, and incredibly selfish in the next moment. It’s only when the foundation
we’ve built our life around completely falls apart or is taken away and lost
somehow that our ego as a form of disillusionment can no longer be sustained,
and we “fall apart”, losing our identity. This process of transformation is
often referred to as the “dark night of the soul” where we “hit bottom”, so to
speak, and we truly step into the true reality of things where the only way out
is to embrace and utilize our ability to completely rebuild our life in order
to become who we’re really capable of becoming. At this point, we can no longer
sustain ourselves through our life conditions and circumstances, and have to
begin drawing on a purely internal source as the means of creating, developing,
and sustaining ourselves.
Many people who seem strong and as though they have it together in one situation, will show up as scared, weak, crumbing, and completely falling apart in another one. It’s only when we face a diverse array of different type of challenges and hardships that all of our false fronts dissolve and we gain access to our “core self”. Once everything we relied on previously begins going away we begin realizing that we have a choice as to who and how we’re going to be in relationship to what happens to us. In this moment we are provided with the opportunity to practice true self-mastery as our ability to create our self from a fully conscious state that’s free of illusions. If you can be pressured into being a certain way under the right circumstances, where you can somehow justify it, so to speak, then that’s providing you with a mirror into your soul showing you who and how you “really are”. Once you get a firsthand realization of your own poor character traits through the experience of being that way, you know exactly what it is you need to transform about yourself.
Resistance, Temptation, and Willpower
Through active use of our will, we have the ability to resist our own conditioned tendencies and temptations to engage in unconscious and automatic behaviors developed in us as children that are bad or destructive somehow. The word “bad” in this context isn’t about a belief or opinion that we’ve been taught and willingly adopted, but rather the result of what will be created from practical use of the natural laws involved. Part of our moral development comes from our conscience and how we intuitively feel about what will result from certain activities. In all spiritual allegories that demonstrate spiritual laws, the soul is consistently tried and tested through emotions and temptations of various sorts to see if those feelings and qualities are still alive inside and an active part of their psyche.
Temptation isn’t really a test between “good and bad”, as it’s generally thought of, but rather provides us with the means to examine our own inner nature and actively utilize our ability to choose and willfully act out our decisions, going against what might otherwise be thought of as impulsiveness or a part of our conditioned and unconscious nature. We’re typically tempted with situations that bring gratification and physical pleasure, that feed an insecurity of some kind, satisfy or remedy a fear, or cause us to go against a desire for change by relapsing and continuing to engage in the very behaviors we’ve decided to change. In order to be “tempted” by something we have to have that quality and desire still “alive” in us as a part of our moral character. The act and experience of feeling tempted to engage in something we don’t want or like, is giving us direct insight into our own unconscious nature and character, showing us what it is we still have to transform. It shows us where there’s a lack of alignment and harmony between our conscious and unconscious mind.
Those who can be tempted into exercising
parts of their character that goes against their seemingly conscious decisions
for themselves, are not of the same nature as the beings of a higher plane of
consciousness who reside in a basic state of harmony with all aspects of
themselves. We can only ascend to a plane that vibrates at a certain frequency,
meaning the pattern being played out as the reality of that plane, when we are
of the same nature, likeness, and character. The higher plane of consciousness
is a “unified plane” where all aspects of the Soul are aligned in harmony with
one another and therefore always act under any circumstances to create in a
constructive and beneficial manner for the good of all involved. As long as we
remain divided in spirit (mind) and act to sabotage our own ability to create,
and create while predominately in an unconscious state that’s opposing our
conscious decisions, we’ll remain in this plane of duality where the higher
soul is being ran by the lower soul, which is driven by emotions and desires
for physical things. The higher region of the astral plane is void of emotions
that are designed to produce unconscious impulses as instinctual behaviors.
Whatever type of reality we “create ourselves out of” we bond ourselves to
energetically and remain within that plane.
Whatever we participate in and act to willingly create as a reality, whether we’re just like it or stand in opposition of it, we’re “like in nature” and vibrate at the same frequency. Whatever causes a reaction in us is acting to awaken a quality that’s there to be awakened. Life events and external stimulus only have the ability to call forth traits in us that are already there. If we don’t possess a trait or tendency, then we’re not stimulated or affected by it outside of us. As long as we need to put forth a conscious decision to resist a desire for something, it’s showing us what it is we need to transform in order to actually “be” of a different state and nature where we’re not tempted by it in the least.
Purification of the Soul
Whenever we’re talking about the Soul
we’re talking about our “whole self”, especially as it pertains to the mind as
our feelings, thoughts, and emotions that produce all of our behaviors. If we
orientate ourselves from the perspective of the Soul coming into the material
body and plane as its own creation, we realize that our perception of reality
is produced by how we feel, what type of things we focus on and think about and
form into sensory realities, and what emotions we generate and act to tune
ourselves to as a response to our own thoughts. We’re always forming “internal
representations” of reality that we use in place of what we can think of as
“actual” or “objective reality”. These internal representations act as a form
of map for navigating reality and forming coherent and consistent
interpretations of the events of our life to give them a consistent meaning
forming a congruent version of reality.
Whatever meaning we give things
determines what we tell ourselves about them as the means of understanding them,
and forming an equal understanding of ourselves by way of them. These internal
representations are really meant to create a metaphorical idea that we can use
as a kind of filtering system for transforming a universal or mass reality into
a personal one. The Soul is always acting to use metaphors and archetypes as a
general idea that’s interpreted through the paradigm of the lower soul to form
a new and unique version of the same basic idea. This personalized idea is
perceived as real and true, and forms the relationship the higher soul forms
with the lower soul as the means of creating itself.
When we don’t realize that our internal representations are metaphorical in nature and mistake them for being objective, they become “illusions” that we live our life out of without direct awareness of the fact that we’re the ones creating it. This is self-evident by the fact that all spiritual scripture is written in symbolic, metaphorical language and allegories (stories that are symbolic) that require every person reading it to form their own interpretation as the means of understanding it. When it’s interpreted from an objective perspective as an “actual event or person”, an illusion takes the place of fact, and we become lost in a form of self-induced delusion.
What we refer to as the higher planes of
existence are planes of the mind which are “creative in nature”. We only truly
act to create when forming our own realizations around things and by
intuitively taking a universal idea and transforming it into a personalized
version. If someone else is telling us what something means, then we’re
accepting their creation as our own, and aren’t actually creating anything. The
lower soul of the material mind is passive and receptive and acts only to
“conceive of” ideas being given to it by the active aspect of the “will”. When
we adopt another person’s interpretation of a symbolic idea and turn it into a
reality in our mind, we are in fact being created by that person as the means
for expressing and creating the outer reality of their will. We’re literally being
led and determined by them. We’re accepting their interpretation as our own,
and literally creating ourselves to be like them in nature. This is what the
term “the blind leading the blind” is referring to. As beings of higher
consciousness we have to learn how to interpret all of the events of our life
intuitively in order to know their true meaning and exercise our ability to
think and decide for ourselves. As long as we’re unable to do this, or are too
afraid of making a mistake, we’ll remain in the lower plane of “unconscious
beings” that need to be taught, led, and instructed on what to do.
The most basic idea of what it means to
“purify your soul” is to let go of all the illusions you created about yourself
because of what you were trained to believe and taught by others that you
unknowingly accepted as being “true”, and realize that everything within the
material world is a form of symbolic idea that represents a universal truth
that you can only realize by using your intuition to properly discern. Realize
that your entire reality has been formed out of what you have been taught to
believe and accepted without questioning its reason or validity. It’s to begin
“tuning into” the inner nature (soul) of things in order to understand them as
they really are rather than relying on their outer appearance.
It’s only when we begin owning our own ability to truly create our life that we dissolve the illusions and truly tap into the underlying reality of things and begin a form of “soul to soul” communication. Where we allow the illusions about ourselves born out of our unconscious conditioning to completely fall away and quit allowing our mind to be impregnated by the will of others as the means of finding our “truth about things”. Once we realize how we’ve created our perception of reality and ourselves by way of that reality, and we begin going inward in order to find our true answers instead looking to others to tell us what to think, and we tune ourselves instead to the “feelings things give us” as a way of seeing them as they truly are, we begin simultaneously sensing our self as we truly are.
Every time we are faced with making a
true decision, we do it by asking ourselves “who am I?” Who am I going to be in
relationship to this idea? What do I want to create right now? All thoughts
that we form in relationship to everything else is how we act on ourselves to
create ourselves in a moment by moment fashion. All true knowledge can only be
apprehended intuitively. Our intuition is not an “aspect or faculty of the
mind”, as many have been taught, but rather the awareness that’s formed through
the mind in its higher, unified state. It’s formed from by utilizing the full
capacity of both our unconscious (right hemisphere of brain) and self-conscious
mind (left hemisphere) to form a single experience of reality as a unification
of both seen and unseen aspects of the same thing. Instead of viewing physical
form and outer appearances as being objective in nature, we realize that it’s a
symbolic metaphor as the expression of the energy it acts to contain, and we
can begin interpreting things to form a much more accurate perception of the
creative energies that underlie and act to give rise to the material world.
By tuning into the spiritual world that
animates and gives life to the entire material world, we can begin orientating
ourselves to a higher perspective where we gain full realization of our
spiritual and creative abilities. Through this perspective and the realization
it brings, we gain access to our own true nature and how we really are as a
creative being that has the ability to use all aspects of our mind in a
balanced and unified way in order to truly begin creating ourselves by way of
our own mind and will. We have to step into and fully embrace the higher
capacities of our mind and begin creating ourselves with a sense of purpose and
intention in becoming who we’re truly meant to be.
We purify ourselves by cleansing our
mind of all the self-created illusions that we were previously programmed with
and begin viewing life from a higher and more universal mindset where we can
begin seeing life as it really is. What we think of as our “life” is produced by
us through a stage and set of conditions as our life circumstances that are ideal
for us to decide how we’re going to create ourselves. As we decide and actively
act out our choices, making them a reality, we then produce and “experience” as the means
of taking back into ourselves where it becomes our soul’s memory. We’re always
creating our reality through our mental perception and what we tell ourselves
about it that then becomes the basis of our soul’s memory as our energetic
constitution. There’s an infinite flow between the inner and outer as a
self-perpetuating system that expresses outward as a projection, creating a
reality that’s perceived as being separate, that’s then absorbed back into the
self and used as the means of sustaining itself.
Energy Medicine – Transmutation and
the Law of Sympathies
All living beings exist at multiple
levels simultaneously and have both a physical and energetic body. The
energetic body, which is also referred to as the etheric double or vital body,
is comprised of subtle energy and is what serves to transform a field of
organized information (mind) into a material being through a form of
self-organizing mechanism that’s inherent in the life-force energy. All energy
as vibration contains a pattern and a self-organizing feature that acts to
shape essence into a specialized pattern as a biological life-form. This life-force
energy causes a single cell encoded with genetic information to reproduce and differentiate
to form every aspect and function of a larger, physical body. It’s the
spiritual (invisible) forces that activate and animate all physical beings not
only producing an analogous form, but also the consciousness and personality of
that form as its “life”. It’s the subtle intelligence that gives life to all
living beings by holding trillions of cells (single replicas) together as a
unified and self-governed field of information.
The most fundamental composition of what we call matter is light. Light exists primarily in an invisible state and only becomes illuminated and therefore visible to the physical senses when it’s reflecting off of matter of some kind. A blue sky appears illuminated and therefore “light” by reflecting off of dust particles and humidity in the atmosphere (astral plane). So what we commonly think of as illumination (light) is really a projection and reflection of a dark field of energy. Energy as light is invisible to the physical senses whenever it’s not being reflected off of something. Light itself exists in seven basic aspects as a spectrum of colors (values) that represent what frequency it vibrates at, moving from a slower, lower waveform to a faster, and higher one. Each color within the spectrum contains different energetic states as qualities of consciousness. The natural color of something gives us insight into what frequency it’s vibrating at and what type of qualities it possesses as a result.
Whatever properties a material object
contains reveals to us what aspect of light is either absorbed and remains invisible
to the senses, and what’s not. The vibratory frequency of the internal energies
is revealed by what it “resonates” with, which it acts to absorb and integrate.
Whatever isn’t absorbed is reflected instead and forms the outer appearance
that an object takes on. For example, a leaf is green, not because it
chemically produces the green ray of the light spectrum, but because it’s the
only hue of the spectrum it doesn’t act to “absorb”, and reflects it instead.
So what we think of as the inner constitution of something is comprised of the
qualities and potencies it naturally acts to absorb and assimilate from the
atmosphere around it, which is what forms its energetic state, and is only
evident in its outer appearance by what it’s “not”. The outer appearance is
produced by the complementary opposite of its inner state. For example, green
is the complementary opposite of red. So an outer color of green tells us that
it acts to absorb the red frequencies of the spectrum.
The internal nature of light is actually
comprised of all the colors of the spectrum as the essence or inner nature of light
which is why it doesn’t reflect any colors and appears invisible. Colors, or
“rays” as they’re commonly called, exist as qualities that each has a unique,
yet complementary vibration within the same scale as a range of vibration. Light
exists as seven basic colors, in the same way that seven notes makes up a
musical scale as an octave. The eighth one is formed as the summation of all
seven as an accumulation that takes it to the next higher scale as the base
note that begins that scale. The form light takes on as a physical object is
based on its rate (speed of movement as a wave-form) and mode (quality and
function) of vibration, and is referred to as its essence, which contains a
certain type and kind of pattern. A pattern acts as a template for organizing
the informational structure of a material form, giving it certain
Light, like all energy of the universe, exists simultaneously in a dual state as both a wave and field of information, and as a particle or actual physical form that’s constructed out of the same type of pattern on different scales and levels of creation, and forms both our internal state and our outer reality as direct reflections and correspondences to each other. The inner, invisible light and the outer visible world exist in polarity to each other as complementary opposites of the same idea. The outer manifestation of the material body is produced and maintained by the inner essence and state of consciousness as its vibratory frequency. This is a universal law that governs all of life, and is always true. No exceptions. Energy and matter are different densities as complementary opposites of the same thing and exist in an intimate relationship with each other.
The Nature of Subtle Energy
What we call subtle energy is a
fluid-like light as the essence of Life itself. Its essence if formed out of “qualities
of consciousness” that form our inner, spiritual nature and is what determines our
physical characteristics as a dynamic interrelated pattern that forms how we function
and what manifests as a result. Essence is comprised of different energies that
makeup the personal consciousness and existence of something. It’s a pattern as
an energetic formula of concentrated qualities and forces that make up its
constitution as a “Soul”. As humans we’re unique and stand apart from the rest
of life on Earth because we’re of a threefold nature and have a lower, animal
soul (etheric double) needed to construct a physical body, a middle or human
Soul (specialized as a unique pattern of qualities), and the higher Soul as the
“I” which makes us unique individuals in our own right. These three aspects of
our being correlate with the physical, etheric, astral, emotional, mental, and
causal fields of all living entities.
The Higher Soul is the Quintessence, which is comprised of archetypes that serve as ideas in their pure or ideal state as virtues, and are used to grow and transform material bodies by altering their essence as both active and passive properties. This is the archetypal plane of Higher, perfected consciousness used as the means for transforming ourselves while in a physical body by embodying qualities as an idea that we then perfect in us as an “ideal”. By using the archetypes of the higher, spiritual plane to create ourselves, we form ourselves to be of an ideal, virtuous and god-like nature. We transform ourselves by taking on qualities that alter our character and how we function in the most natural sense.
The Law of Polarity and the Nature of
Absorption and Assimilation
Matter exists in a primary state as the
passive and receptive component of consciousness, and only acts to absorb
energies around it that are of the same essence and nature as the soul
inhabiting it. It’s formed and reformed by whatever it resonates with,
attracts, absorbs and assimilates that acts to modify its essence through the
type, degree, and measure of the energies it blends with. The state and
condition of the body determines what type of energies it acts to naturally
absorb from the space around it. This means that whatever state of mind as a
quality of consciousness we exist in as our inner nature and character,
determines what we’re susceptible to, and what we’re not. Absorption only takes
place through sympathetic induction of “like energies”. We resonate with
everything around us that’s of a similar nature and essence as we are. As we
draw in energies of a similar vibration, they produce an affect in us, altering
our vibration (soul composition), and we begin vibrating in harmony with them.
Our vibration is altered through the acquisition, integration, and accumulation
of similar energies where we become “like them” in nature. This is the most
fundamental form of evolution that all beings undergo that keeps them in-sync
with their environment.
All life as we know it is produced by an idea as a specialized pattern that has certain qualities that gives it the characteristics and produces all of its natural behaviors and determines how it functions instinctively. Our specialized pattern as our essence forms a dynamic chain of associations as correspondences that produce our disposition, temperament, attitude, perspective, thoughts, emotions, and actions. All behavior as activity is motivated and produced by subtle energy. The quality of energy determines the corresponding behaviors and what we “cause and create” as a result. Every action as a cause sets into motion a process that produces an effect as an equivalent reaction. It produces a ripple effect that creates both smaller and greater patterns of the same nature, as well as immediate and long-term effects. If an action is being continuously repeated and maintained in a consistent fashion, we strengthen and develop the energies as the type of consciousness that’s motivating it.
Life-force energies form the full spectrum of light as the essence of all Life. It’s the qualities that form the inner nature of all living beings in different proportions and degrees. This same principle is what acts to form the universal nutriment that sustains all of life. This is the power by which we perceive the true qualities of things, where we take in an idea, and as a means of adapting it to our mental model in order to make sense of it, we assimilate it into an existing body of ideas that we already possess, altering it to “be like us” in order to perceive it in a fully conscious way. In order to perceive the soul of a being as its “life”, we have to intuitively perceive the qualities inherent in it, rather than its outer appearance, which is simply a reflection of light. As we begin resonating with the inner qualities of a thing, we form sympathy with it and as a result absorb the same qualities, activating them within us, modifying our own energetic structure to be of a similar nature.
Relationship and the Process of
All things that are already manifest only change their inner nature by forming relationships as new combinations of qualities. By changing the chemistry of an energetic formula, we create new patterns. These patterns can appear balanced or unbalanced based on the degree and proportion or intensity of each quality forming it. All mutations come as new combinations formed by whatever relationships are formed and maintained over a period of time. We don’t transform by attempting to alter the energy (quality) itself, because energy exists as pure essence that can’t be altered or changed, and can only be used to form a new combination of energies that serve to transform and modify a preexisting essence as a complex.
All energies have a purpose and focus
and are of a certain type, kind, and concentration. These energies aren’t good
or bad in and of themselves, but instead are used in either appropriate or
inappropriate ways, making them constructive or destructive. An imbalance, caused
by an excessive amount of a certain type of energy causes a manifestation that
becomes detrimental and ultimately destructive to the entire system (mentally,
morally, emotionally, and physically), causing what ultimately results in some
kind of illness or disease. The natural means for transforming (healing) the
manifestation is to combine new qualities of consciousness that serve to bring
it back into a balanced and harmonious state, or to recognize what quality is
being used inappropriately and finding a more congruent means of expression.
Our subtle body as our etheric/vital body, vibrates at a specific frequency as a “range of vibration” or scale that’s constantly resonating and forming sympathy with all similar energies in the environment around us. We absorb these energies with our etheric organs as the electromagnetic fields of the chakra system, that in turn serve to operate the Endocrine system of the physical body as the means of interpreting and distributing energies to their corresponding organs throughout the body. Chakras are magnetic fields as spiritual centers that acquire, integrate, accumulate and distribute energy, altering the state of the body to match it as a correspondence. Embodying a feeling of love creates a sensation of beauty as a state of mind that systematically infuses the entire body with that same quality by producing a chain of association as the electric signals absorbed by the magnetic centers that send out corresponding messengers (hormones) altering the chemistry of the body to match it. When these mental states are expressed consistently over an extended period of time, producing an emphasis, they act systematically to regenerate the molecular structure of the body to be of the same state or complementary nature.
The Astral Plane of Light
All living beings derive their
Life-giving energies from two primary sources in Nature – from the inner and
outer atmosphere. What we call the atmosphere as a field of light we’re
submerged in, can also be thought of as the Astral Plane of Light (sun-star light)
which is a unified field of ideas (information) as “thought-forms” that acts as
the nutriment agent used by the human soul to create and sustain itself as a
certain “type and kind of person”. What we perceive as the atmosphere surrounding
us exists as the etheric body or soul of the Earth as an invisible field of
substances. We draw these nutriments as elements into our etheric body
(inwardly) where they act to change our energetic composition. The intangible
atmosphere as the empty space around us is the source of all Life upon the Earth
and throughout the universe that we all share in common and use both
unconsciously and consciously as the means of shaping ourselves.
This invisible field is the root of
intelligence and emotions and the source of all archetypes (patterns) by which
all species are differentiated and formed into specialized patterns with unique
combinations of universal qualities. Various kinds of energy can only be
released and utilized through beings whose natures are sympathetic and where
polarities exist. Humans are unique from all other forms of life on Earth
because they’re capable of modifying their own nature and can attract countless
forms of energy as a result. If we don’t use our higher capacities of
self-realization, choice and will to intentionally develop in us the energies
that are constructive in nature, then we exist on the same non-intelligent
plane as the animals and only act to attract more of what originated through
our genetic make-up and formative conditioning. By remaining in an unconscious
state we simply attract and create out of the same type of ideas and patterns
over and over without knowing any better or realizing that we have the power to
change it. We only respond to those energies we can capture and hold by the
polarities we’ve strengthened and developed in ourselves through thoughtful and
There are many different kinds of polarities we can establish that produce a natural chain of association that affects the mineral, nutritional, astral, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual planes producing a similar effect in each one. An individual can only energize an emotional power that’s consistent with their own nature. If we exist in a primary hateful state, we can’t act as the vehicle for forming an archetype of love. We polarize ourselves to hate instead as a kind of gravitational field or affinity that acts to tune into, absorb, assimilate, and enhance and strengthen more feelings of hate. We form perceptions that are hateful and attract people and situations that cause us to feel and express more hatred. All of our experiences come as a result of what qualities we embody as our state of mind and use to create our perceptions and actions as an expression of that quality that reproduce and amplify it, giving us more of it. Like always produces more of what’s like itself. The outer reality always corresponds to the inner reality.
Polarity of Qualities
All qualities exist in a polar state of
complementary opposites necessary to sustain and transform each other. These
are expressed in spiritual texts as virtues and their opposing vices. Love and
hate exist as what seems like opposites, but are identical as a pattern or
idea, and are only separated by degrees on a form of sliding scale. One exists
as the extreme of the other and is necessary in order to create the other based
on how they contrast and relate to each other. We can only “know something” as
a specific quality by contrasting and comparing it to what it’s not. Love has
no meaning unless we compare it to hate, just as we can only know cold as it
compares to hot. The balanced point between the extremes of love and hate is
like, just as the balance point between cold and hot is warm. Opposing aspects
of the same idea, separated only by degrees that move them gradually from one
extreme to another, and balance each other at a neutral center point. A
practical knowledge of the Law of Polarity provides us with the method and
means of transforming ourselves from one state to another.
Therapy in the most basic sense comes by
identifying imbalances and setting up the necessary poles for the reception and
distribution of energies in order to bring it back into balance. By removing
all impediments to its circulation, and opposing two energies, one to another, we
act to neutralize that which is no longer useful or necessary in creating
well-being. Food isn’t merely a physical substance with nutritional value in
terms of vitamins and minerals, but is the medium for the transmission of
Life-force energy. It’s the energetic nature of the food that nourishes us
energetically. The nature of the plant determines what it takes up and utilizes
from the soil to produce its essence, and likewise, it’s the nature of a person
that determines what they uptake from the universal nutriment. This is why when
several people are exposed to the same contaminant only certain people get sick
from it, because it’s all based on the energetic condition of their mind and
body and what they act to absorb or repel.
All things grow according to their kind and constitution. We have the ability to change certain parts of ourselves by intentionally developing our own nature. We can change bad habits, negative attitudes, and false beliefs which serve to draw us to destructive energy and produce ill health and a general sense of unhappiness. Each destructive thought kills nutritive forces within us, whereas constructive thought brings a renewed sense of life to our thinking. In the ultimate sense we’re all responsible for how we use and cultivate energy to create ourselves and our health. We’re the only ones that act to determine what energies we indulge in, feed on, and use to create ourselves, and which ones we don’t. In this sense all healing is “self-healing”. Only we have the power and conscious ability to heal ourselves by modifying our own energetic makeup.
Sympathies – Affinity as Association
Whatever exists in the atmosphere around
us that’s of a similar nature to us, we form an affinity with as a kind of
gravitational field. Through energetic sympathy we form an intimate
relationship where whatever affects one affects the other in a similar manner. They
form a corresponding nature in qualities, properties, proportions, and harmonic
elements. The astral plane is the plane of the Soul and is the medium capable
of communicating and transmitting vibration through a form of telepathy.
Whatever state we maintain on a regular basis we act as a tuner, transmitter,
and receiver for the same type of energy within the Astral Plane of the
Magnetism and Attraction
Each person tunes themselves to a
particular frequency by the mental state and qualities they employ and
strengthen by expressing them. Whatever qualities as a state of mind we employ
magnetizes us to the same type of forces and circumstances all around us and we
are drawn to them through a form of attraction. We only act to produce whatever
it is we “earn” and therefore “deserve” through our mental state and conduct. When
we polarize ourselves to a pattern that’s self-fulfilling in nature, we
establish a pole between us and the corresponding energy and idea in everyone
and everything else around us. We draw on the energetic essences in Nature that
are analogous to our mental state and necessary in order to produce a reality
that matches and is the expression of our state. We draw on the archetypal ideas
from the higher plane of perfect ideals as metaphors, in order to produce a
reality out of it as a means of creating ourselves to be like it. We draw on
essences in order to produce a unique essence as a new combination that tunes
us to a certain type of reality.
Sympathetic attraction can be thought of as a gravitational field of magnetic forces, where one seeks out another of the same nature for the purpose of companionship and in order to exchange similar ideas. Whatever we “blend with” in nature, we form an intimate understanding of as a relationship that’s a form of energetic marriage as a blood relative. As we absorb it energetically it acts to alter our blood chemistry to be of the same nature. In the law governing magnetic forces, all greater forces attract lesser forces of the same kind. Whoever we form a close relationship with influences us to become more like them, and we simultaneously influence them to become more like us through shared qualities that act to stimulate each other.
The Healing Art of Theurgy – Work of
The most basic form of Energy Medicine comes
as spiritual growth and healing that transforms us from one state to another, and
is conducted through a practice known as Theurgy. The term Theurgy means the
“art of the gods”, and a Theurgist is someone who works to heal and transform
by utilizing the natural forces of the higher, archetypal plane as the means of
forming new combinations. One of the best ways to gain an understanding of the
higher plane of archetypes is by studying the various mythology of the gods as
“ideals” that demonstrate how certain qualities, characteristics, and actions
work together harmoniously to produce certain types of reality as a certain
kind of story. The archetypes of the Zodiac give us an in-depth description of
the qualities and characteristics that we all share in common as aspects of our
inner nature in varying degrees, placements, and proportions, and how they
ultimately manifest as our inner nature that simultaneously produces our
physical state and sense of well-being.
Archetypes as gods are always described
by using a dynamic series of correspondences that pertain to their essence as
numbers, letters, sounds, colors, gemstones, planetary influences, metals,
elements, emotions, mental states, qualities and characteristics, and what part
of the body they rule. This system of correspondences provides us with a
formula and method for transforming every aspect of our being in a unified and
harmonious manner where we’re working intelligently by starting at the level of
cause in order to produce a calculated and specific effect. Every item listed
as a correspondence is of the same vibratory essence and also acts as a magnet
for drawing in the same kind of energies.
An archetype as a god gives us a complete idea as a pattern comprised of complementary correspondences, which, when utilized as a symbol polarizes us to the same qualities and essences. By combining and blending essences together we either increase or decrease the sum of our essence. Essences as qualities are eternal and remain the same. We don’t ever change the individual essences themselves, but create unique ones instead by forming new combinations. The human Soul is a part of the higher archetypal kingdom, and creates itself as an individual and unique archetype by utilizing archetypal essences and ideas in order to form new patterns. We change the overall potency and properties of already accumulated essences by forming them into new combinations of qualities as a “way of being”. As we embody certain qualities and utilize other corresponding ideas, we tune ourselves to the vibratory frequency of that idea. Resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence are the primary law governing the spiritual world of pure energy. Whatever we become one with as a quality of consciousness, we act as a magnet for attracting more of the same type of energy, while simultaneously serving to magnify and multiply it.
The recognition of sympathy immediately
implies antipathy – which are the complementary electromagnetic forces inherent
in every single aspect of both the visible and invisible world as feminine
(magnetic) and masculine (electric) forces that act simultaneously to produce a
matrix of stress lines that pulls together as it pushes apart. When we attempt
to reconcile opposing electric and magnetic forces they form into a spiraling
motion that creates a stable energetic system. One attracts (draws in) while
the other simultaneously repels (projects outward).
We can think of this metaphorically as sympathy working through and inherent understanding as relating, and antipathy through misunderstanding that contrasts. Whatever is of a different nature than we are and expresses in a different way from us, we can’t understand and therefore feel indifferent to. Wisdom, like love, is a uniting force that acts to bring all things together through an understanding of the soul with its source, and ignorance or a lack of understanding is a separating force that acts as a kind of filtering system. Virtues bring us into contact with all that’s virtuous, connecting us to our true source. Vices are destructive tendencies that draw to us destructive energies, people, and situations. All growth and development comes by connecting with and drawing in energies that are similar to itself, yet unique in proportions and intensities, for the continuous nutriment that serves to sustain and expand its own existence.
Motivation and Willful Creation
Whatever is motivating and forming the basis
for our desire and intention is the most powerful factor in attraction and is
what determines the nature as an outcome of any decisive act. Motivation is
what forms our attitude and how we approach an idea as an outcome we’re trying
to willfully produce. Attraction is always due to unconscious or conscious use
of will based on the desire for a certain type of experience as a kind of “wish
fulfillment”. The same actions taken with a different motive will produce
different results. Whatever is motivating our decision is our reason for taking
the action, and is what determines the nature of the outcome. It’s not the
action itself that produces the outcome, but the desire that’s motivating the
action. It’s not so much what we do, but rather how we do it. The same action
taken with a different attitude will produce different results. We should make
it a practice to carefully examine our motives in any situation in order to
fully understand what results from them, otherwise confusion and
disillusionment may occur.
A resentful person creates a sympathetic relationship with those who are resentful, and attract the circumstances and situations that are ideal for causing more resentment. All energies as complexes are self-fulfilling, and act to feed and sustain them. Emotions are not only readily available and easily accessed, but are also accumulative. Our inner life sets up the polarity that determines our outer life. When personal resources are low, we lack self-control, and our spiritual values are inadequate or nonexistent, we may feel as if we have no means of effectively combating the destructive emotions that are brewing within us. We act on ourselves to align ourselves with an infinite storehouse of whatever quality we employ as our state-of-mind, and as a result, cut ourselves off from contrary sympathetic resources. By feeling resentful we enter into a state of antipathy with love and appreciation as the opposing quality, and are never able to resolve our constant feelings of resentment, and act instead to multiply and intensify them.
All negative emotions are destructive
and all positive ones are constructive. Destructive energy is dispersing and
not only antipathetically opposed to its opposite, positive emotion, but also
towards itself, and only act to cause inner conflict as a fundamental state of
confusion. A person who is consumed with negative emotions suffers constant inner
turmoil because their vices are also incompatible with each other and act
against each other in an antagonistic and destructive way. Wherever there’s
internal conflict, there are also correlating health problems. Whenever there’s
psychic confusion there’s tension, and tension causes an obstruction in the
flow of energy throughout the body.
Whenever we manifest an illness or
malady of some kind, we can use a system of correspondences as the means of
knowing where our imbalances are taking place by the organ and part of the body
they occur in. We can find the archetype that governs that part of the body,
what qualities and mental states it represents, and use this information to
intentionally employ the appropriate state, emotion, behaviors and way of being
as the means of introducing the complementary energy in order to bring our
system back into balance. We can note the herbs, minerals, colors, and
personality of the archetype as a means of changing lifestyle issues associated
with it. We can see what the vice or negative character trait is that’s also
associated with it, and use the virtue as a means of transforming it. We can
use the system of correspondences as the means of working on ourselves from the
level of “cause” (reason, mental, emotional, etheric, and physical) to
transform what manifests as an “effect”. All manifestation originates as a
mental and emotional state which is what forms the etheric body. All changes
occur first in the subtle body which is created by the relationship and activities
of all three aspects of the mind (conscious, self-conscious, and subconscious)
working in harmony with each other.
As a kid growing up, I was born into a
very challenging life. My mom was a single mother with five kids, one of which
was mentally retarded, and we were on welfare. We lived in a small two bedroom
house in the worst neighborhood in town, and experienced many forms of abuse
while being neglected and left unsupervised for days at a time. My older
brothers ended up going to detention homes, my younger sister passed away at 9,
and I ended up running away in order to avoid what would happen to me if I
stayed home. I became quite accustomed to living on the streets and fending for
myself by the time I was 12.
Throughout my teenage years I was taken away from my mother due to abuse and put into the court system where I went in and out of foster care that was almost worse than living at home, so I ended up running away from those also. Though all of this I continued to go to school while living in a fort I built in the park. In spite of all of this I did very well in school where I was put into accelerated learning classes and graduated high school at 16 with a scholarship to college. I filed for emancipation at 16, got a job and started college, where I graduated at 18. I experienced unimaginable hardship while trying to survive and protect myself, and was hospitalized on two occasions for malnutrition. As I continued through life I seemed to be thrust from one challenging situation to another, enduring many hardships, traumas, tragedies, and crisis, which are still continuing to this day.
When I was young I remember feeling as if I
was always being punished for something, but I couldn’t figure out what I had
done to deserve to be punished because I was a really good kid (seriously). I
was the only “white sheep” in my family, always helped out, and never got in
trouble (except for fighting and running away). As I got older I began to look
at things from a much deeper perspective of wanting to penetrate the secrets of
life, which I found to be very mysterious.
One thing that I recognized about myself
at a fairly young age was that I was a very “strong” individual with a will
that could push through what seemed like unbearable situations with a positive
attitude, and I always seemed to have a clear perspective on what was happening
forming realizations that led me to consistently make clear decisions about who
I was and what I was going to do. I was never easily led, could care less about
fitting in, and never had anyone to look to for guidance and help. Many of my
decisions were quite difficult to make as I felt torn with a sense of love and
loyalty to the very people I sought to get away from, and was terrified to
leave and face being all alone and vulnerable to the unknowns of life. My first
few years living on the street as a child were terrifying and very stressful,
but after a while I got a system down that seemed to work pretty well.
As a young adult, having gone through a problematic pregnancy my son was born with serious medical problems that required me to persist in trying to get him diagnosed to a point where they thought I was suffering from some kind of “postnatal depression and hysteria”. He was finally diagnosed in just enough time to save him, and I underwent a year of repeated hospitalization and several major surgeries, while also being told at one point that he was dying, where I decided to take him home, and administered the care that caused him to fully recover and begin thriving again.
During this time my entire life fell
apart and I think I may have had what seemed like several nervous breakdowns in
trying to deal with it all at once. One of these breakdowns (completely
distraught) came as the result of having to go against the system and
everything I was being told in order to save my son’s life, that resulted in
having a direct encounter with what I came to recognize as my Higher Self as what
intuitively “showed me what to do”. Yet in spite of it all I walked away from
the situation a year later with a healthy and happy little boy. I lost
everything I owned through the process and had to file bankruptcy the next year
due to the astronomical medical bills. During this time I accessed a part of
myself I didn’t even know existed, and it transformed my way of thinking and
being in a way that began taking on a life of its own. I felt like I became a
different person because of this experience. I was no longer afraid or unsure
of myself and could see things with a great sense of clarity and confidence in
I then went through the lingering process of trying
to revitalize a dead marriage, pursued what became a demanding career in order
to take care of my son, became very independent, came face to face with drug
addiction and trying to somehow manage what deteriorated into an abusive
situation. Though I found this period of my life extremely challenging at
times, I also started feeling very strong, mature, and capable and eventually felt
unaffected by the situation I found myself in. I was no longer afraid and
vulnerable, and instead felt grounded, calm and calculating, and able to manage
even the most difficult situations with relative ease and psychological skill.
Another breaking point came several years later when my husband tried to strangle me in the midst of a jealous rage, and I was finally able to make him leave by being willing to face the consequences of what I thought he might do to me. A few months after our separation he was stabbed through the heart while in a bathroom stall of a restaurant, and died four days later. I left the hospital and went directly to the police department where I was interrogated for several hours and given an idea of what charges were being filed and given the details on the nature of what happened. This was followed by a murder trial in our small town of 2,400 people (so it was the biggest thing that happened there in years) that lasted for 14 months, and I won’t even try to convey the insane experience this brought and what I came to realize about how our justice system works.
As I was sitting quietly one day and
reflecting back on things and wondering why “bad things” were always happening
to me, no longer feeling punished but more confused and mystified . . . a voice
inside of me said “think of it as training. How can you teach and help others
through things if you don’t know how to make it through them yourself? See this
as your education so you can fulfill your life’s purpose as a teacher.” This
was profound because at this point in my life I had no idea I was going to end
up teaching. That experience set a transformation into motion and I began
taking a whole different attitude towards the seemingly tragic events of my
life, and looked back on them with a new awareness around the reason for
I realized that even as a child who was
conditioned to a very dysfunctional way of living and dependent on a bizarre
set of circumstances, that I was always aware of what “I couldn’t bring myself
to do.” I wasn’t making clear decisions at first, but rather ones that came
from feelings inside of me that realized I couldn’t be “that kind of person” or
let “those kinds of things happen to me.” In every crisis I face as a major
event of some kind I noticed that it brought out the worst in everyone involved,
including me, and I got to see myself in a different light. I saw myself as
reflecting the traits of those around me, and I didn’t like who I became. I
then realized that in my worst moments as a child I was making the most
important decisions of my life in terms of who I was going to be, and those
decisions served to shape me as an adult and set my destiny in motion.
As I saw the traits in the people around me and how they made me feel by what they were doing and how they were treating each other and me, I thought there’s no way in hell I’m ever going to be like that or act to make someone feel the way I’m feeling right now. I felt disgusted and extremely disappointed. I lived every moment never knowing when someone was going to be “set off” by something and take it out on me, or what kind of mood they were going to be in from one moment to the next. I was actively choosing, even as a child, who and how I was going to be because it wasn’t “in me” to do that. It wasn’t in my nature to be that way. I couldn’t even imagine myself participating in the insane activities going on all around me, and started going off and being by myself as a result.
One of the things I began telling myself
at a young age was that I felt like no one knew who I was because they were
always judging me to be like my family, and I was nothing like them. In schools
teachers would recognize my last name and knew who my brothers were, and would
make off remarks and treated me as though I was going to be a problem to deal
with. Every time I encountered a cop for some reason, they would ask me how my
mom, dad, and brothers were doing. I was perceived as being a juvenile delinquent
and possible trouble-maker or bad influence (many of my friends parents wouldn’t
allow them to hang out with me), even though I was living on my own in the park
while continuing to go to school and never got into any serious trouble with
the law. The only illegal activity I was engaged in was what I needed to do in
order to survive and protect myself, which I did.
When I finally moved out of my home town
and to a brand new community where no one knew me, I was going to work one day
and a voice said to me . . . “okay Linda, you’re always going on about how
people don’t know you for who you really are, well no one knows you here, so
who are you going to be?” And I realized in that moment that no one would know
anything about my past unless I told them. So I made it a point from that
moment forward to never talk about my family, where I came from, or what I had
been through, and took an attitude instead of “creating myself” as I really am.
This not only put me in touch with myself in a new way and “who I am” as a conscious choice, but taught me to quit talking about my past and telling stories about “what happened to me”. As a result, I not only got to the point where I hardly ever thought about it anymore, and eventually started forgetting about a lot of things, but I also learned how to stay present in my life and consciously create myself in every moment to be the person I truly was inside. When people I had known for years finally started finding out about my upbringing and where I came from they were shocked. Most thought that I had come from a fairly well-to-do family, had a formal education, and didn’t have a problem in the world because I “seemed” so “well-balanced and confident.” Of course this was also the community where my son was born and my husband was killed, so it set a whole new type of reality into motion that brought with it a whole new set of challenges and obstacles to be overcome and resolved to a favorable end.
Every time I hit a point of mental and
emotional collapse, where I felt like giving up because I didn’t think I had
the strength or know-how to make it through my situation and I felt completely
alone in life, I realized that I didn’t know how to give up. What would it mean
to give up? How would I live with myself knowing I gave up? What do you
actually do when you give up? And after a period of severe stress and not
knowing what to do, literally falling apart, crying to the point of heaving, I would
get pissed (at myself and God, even though I was an atheist at that time), and
state firmly and repeatedly that I refused to give up – and in those moments of
complete mental breakdown, feeling diminished and lost yet determined to persevere
– I connected with a higher power that
seemed to consume me by “coming into me” and kind of taking over as my own consciousness.
Its consciousness became one with mine
and I felt more alive than ever before with a feeling of intense elation and self-awareness.
An amazing feeling of calm came over me and I became very focused with a
feeling of absolute power in what I was sensing. I seemed to know intuitively exactly
what I needed to do, how I needed to do it, the reason for doing it, and what
would result from it. All of my grief and despair vanished and I immediately
proceeded to carry on with a renewed sense of moral strength that felt
unstoppable. This was a profound awakening for me because I had always felt
abandoned by a higher power and as if I was being made to suffer because I was
a “good person.” I had felt betrayed and condemned by religion and always saw
it as a form of mass delusion, even as a child.
I then started experiencing what I came to realize were premonitions about the events that led up to my husband getting killed, where I literally tried to intervene and stop it from happening because I thought that was why it was being revealed to me. As I tried to change the course of events based on what I was seeing, they simply happened in a different way. Then, after he was stabbed and died on the spot, and was resuscitated several times while undergoing open-heart surgery, only to die as soon as he was taken out of ICU from a blood clot, it changed my perspective on everything. This set a whole new realm of investigation into motion that completely changed the course of my life by leading me down a path of deep inquiry into the true nature of destiny and the meaning of life. I became consumed with wanting to know what happens when we die? What do we experience? What’s it like? Where do we go? And I began reading everything I could find on the subject while talking to other psychics about their experiences with seeing people’s death and what happened when they tried to intervene by warning them.
It was at this moment that I finally
realized that if I didn’t believe in God, then who was I always talking to, and
who was talking to me? I realized I was always engaged in a form of intimate conversation
with another being that was inside of me. What was the voice inside of me that
was always guiding, instructing, and comforting me? How was it that I could
foresee events of the future while unconsciously engaging in behaviors as a
part of what led up to them (I bought a black dress for an event a week before
he died that I ended up wearing to his funeral). Was our life predetermined and
we were just going through the motions as the experience of it, or were we
truly creating our life moment by moment through the decisions we make?
What I realized through all of it was
that in every moment, through every life challenge and crisis, I was able to
see different aspects of myself brought out by the shear panic and despair I
was feeling, where I was making a decision, conscious or not, as to who I was
going to be in relationship to that moment, and taking what often amounted to
drastic actions that were terrifying in and of themselves as the means of
fulfilling my decisions. These weren’t decisions made in an analytical way
through reasoning as a debate, but rather ones that resulted from feelings,
intuition, and a heightened awareness around the true nature of things.
I became very clear on what was “in me to do and what wasn’t.” My choices came out of an awareness of who I am as a soul. Not from what I was “taught” was right or wrong or acceptable based on the circumstances. I couldn’t “imagine myself” being that way, and if I was, I would hate myself while knowing I had the ability to change it, but chose not to out of fear and self-doubt. All of my unconscious decisions resulted not from my conditioning and the values and behaviors being demonstrated all around me that I was an inherent part of, but from my inner sense of morality and what I knew deep inside to be right and wrong. It was my morality and intuition as a soul that was my compass and beacon shining through in even the darkest moments when all hope seemed lost and I was beside myself with fear. All the answers I sought weren’t outside of me, but within me, simply waiting to be acknowledged. I realized that questions and answers are opposite ends of the same thing, and the questions we ask in our most private moments with a deep sincerity to know bring the answers to us as life experiences.
I continue through life, I’m still experiencing one challenge after another, I’m
currently in the process of going blind (have been for several years), but now
I look at things from a completely different perspective where I see them as
the ideal situation for showing me parts of myself that I still need to
transform. I see them as opportunities administered by my Higher Self that
serve to facilitate my moral and spiritual grow by teaching me the lessons they
hold as a result. I’m completely clear on the fact that karma is administered
in an unbiased and compassionate fashion by my Higher Self lovingly affording
me the opportunity to redeem myself from past errors instead of blindly
repeating them in new ways, and develop all of my weaknesses and bad traits
into moral strength and mental skill. Realizing that problems are actually
loving gestures designed to grow me in new ways, I feel a deep sense of
appreciation for all of what I imagine to be tribulations.
I’ve learned that every situation, no
matter how challenging or difficult it seems, brings out in me all kinds of
qualities and traits in response to it, many of which appeal to the mentality
and emotional states of my conditioning where I can detach from them in order
to see them in a different light and not let them consume me by making them
personal. Through the challenges of my life I can see what weaknesses I still
need to transform into strengths. I have developed a strong ability to look at
myself as I truly am, and take an attitude of always rising to every challenge
I’m faced with in order to develop myself in a fully conscious and deliberate
way. I realize with complete certainty that this material life is not the prize
to be won or story to be lived, but simply sets the stage necessary for me to
decide in every moment who I’m going to be in relationship with it and as a
co-creator with it.
I realize that my true purpose in life
is to grow my soul in ways that allow me to help other people grow. I consider
myself a teacher and know that I can only teach others what I know from
experience. I know that in blazing a path from the lowest level of despair to
the highest level of optimism and confidence casts this into the astral light
of mass consciousness where it can be accessed and utilized by all who are
searching for their own answers. It has provided me with the knowledge and
practical skills to be able to embrace and walk head on into any situation, no
matter how bad, with a sense of compassion, reverence, and confidence in my
ability to not only to endure it and know what to do in new situations, but use
it to actively develop the parts of me it naturally acts to calls forth in
response to it.
I know that this life and these
circumstances are simply a phase and step in my soul’s overall growth and are
only meaningful in terms of setting the stage that’s ideal for my eternal
process of self-creation. It’s not about what happens to us in life or why, but
rather who we decide to become by way of what happens to us. In every moment we’re
making decisions based on one question, and that is “who am I?” Who am I going
to be in this moment? What am I going to create? We’re always the one
determining our own creation and setting the course for our destiny. The only
purpose to this life is to master our ability to not be controlled by the
conditions and circumstances of life, but to engage at the point of actively
directing the natural forces of the world through the power of self-realization,
choice and will. How we live this life sets the karmic basis for the next as a
continuation of our journey from an unconscious state to a fully conscious one.
of the most profound practices that have been largely abandoned in our modern
era is the practice of developing a moral code of conduct as standards that we
hold ourselves to as the means for governing ourselves through all kinds of
situations. While many have been taught to adopt the moral values laid down for
them by others as “rules for living their life” in order to be a “good person”,
it’s actually something that we all do for ourselves based on how we want to be.
This is because only we are truly responsible for how we live our life and who
we become by way of our own actions. Only we can decide what’s right and wrong
for us in terms of our perceptions and the behaviors that result from them, and
how we act within our own life to create. As sovereign beings born with the
ability to create ourselves, only we are responsible for whom we become as an
There’s currently a gross misconception being cultivated around all ideas of what it means to actually discriminate and use our ability to make accurate evaluations as somehow being prejudice, because these ideas are only being viewed from a negative context with a specific agenda in mind. One of the primary differences between what we call our lower and higher nature comes as our ability to think for ourselves and make our own decisions as to whom and how we’re going to be. This doesn’t come as making a decision as to what ideas formed by others we’re going to choose to accept as our own so we don’t have to figure stuff out for ourselves, but rather through our ability to reason, analyze, and evaluate ideas in order to see what their morality is in terms of the actions and outcomes they produce. The foundation used for creating our own moral values comes through our ability to both recognize and comprehend universal laws and apply them intelligently to our everyday life as the means of creating ourselves and determining the path our life takes.
people look to religion and the laws of society as the means of acquiring
ready-made moral values, and we all acquire the moral values of our family
through our formative conditioning as children. Many have been taught by religion
that we’re not born moral beings, but rather born into a life of sin as our
lower, animal nature of pure instinct. Where our greatest challenge is
resisting our own impulses and being seduced into doing things we don’t really
want to. Yet the idea of a moral code used to monitor your own behavior
originated in a much more objective and intelligent form as guidelines that we
created for ourselves through the recognition, understanding and conscious
application of Universal Laws. Laws are what unify multiple dimensions of
feelings, thoughts, emotions, and actions to produce a single reality in order
to consciously create at the spiritual or energetic realm of pure
consciousness. It’s a tool used for developing ourselves to a higher level of
consciousness as the use of absolute truth inherent in the Laws and Principles
we look at the story of Moses and how he acquired the 10 Commandments, we’ll
realize that he originally received the 10 primary universal laws that were
engraved on sapphire tablets. But when he descended from the mountain to
deliver the Universal Laws as a means of guiding the people, he saw that they
we’re engaging in “pleasures of the flesh” and were not capable of receiving (comprehending
or utilizing) the laws. This made him angry and broke the original tablets and
went back up the mountain where he then translated the laws into commandments
as “rules” engraved on ordinary stone that could be given and blindly followed
by those who didn’t have the ability to understand higher laws and use them as
the means of governing themselves. He then tried to lead them out of slavery
(metaphor for ignorance) where they were being governed by others through the
inability to comprehend higher knowledge, where they wandered aimlessly in the
desert for 120 years, still unable to guide themselves.
What we think of as our spiritual nature is of a substantially higher level of consciousness that has the ability to create itself by way of the practical use and thorough understanding of higher laws of the mind, which are used to shape our morality. All spiritual development comes as moral development that’s produced through our ability to decide for ourselves what’s right and wrong, and based on our decision willfully direct our own actions as the means of creating ourselves. All universal laws provide us with the keys to operating our own mind-body system as the means of creating ourselves by way of our own hand. The higher soul is bestowed with the creative capacities necessary to govern and direct its own growth and development. Who we become is something that only we can determine through our own perceptions, decisions and actions.
How we choose to live our life, what beliefs we buy into and how we
conduct ourselves as a result, is constantly reforming us as a direct
correspondence and determines “who” and “how” we become by way of our own
actions. We’re not required to “believe” in higher knowledge in order for
it to be true, because it’s always true in every situation in terms of how
things operate, whether we’re aware of it or not. Our moral code is what we use
to direct our behavior and use in order to remain fully conscious in situations
that normally render us unconscious or tempt us in some way. Unconsciously we
simply live out of whatever morality we we’re taught and trained to as children
that comes more as feelings rather than a clear thought process. We engage in
activities of various sorts without ever really questioning it in terms of
“what type of person” we become due to our actions. Consciously, we form our
moral code of conduct out of our understanding of Law that provides us with
intuitive instructions for how to create ourselves at both the conscious and
subconscious levels. We use the higher capacities of our mind to create
ourselves from a fully conscious and self-aware state.
As a higher soul bestowed with self-awareness, realization, the ability
to choose for ourselves, and the will to actualize our choices, we are all
fully responsible for our own conduct and who we become by way of our own actions.
We can never rightfully blame someone else for our own misgivings and bad
decisions, even when we were persuaded, seduced, or emotionally enticed in some
way. Once we realize what universal law shows us in terms of how we act on
ourselves to shape ourselves by producing the events of our life through our
decisions as to what we cooperatively participate in and what we don’t, we’re
provided with a powerful set of tools for shaping ourselves as a moral and
The idea of stepping fully into our power as a sovereign being capable of guiding our own actions through intelligent decisions can become even more confusing through the misconception that after we die we’re going to be “judged” by some higher being and then eternally punished for all of the mistakes we made while unaware of what we were doing. Many people buy into this idea even though it defies reason and has no real purpose. The only being that’s going to judge us after we leave our lower nature (body consciousness) is our self (higher-self) on a higher plane that comes as more of a “life review” that allows us to see the results of what was in fact “cause and effect relationships”. We review our life in terms of the growth we incurred through active use of our higher capacities and the results we created while caught up in emotional illusions of some kind. Our life review brings awareness to the karma we created that sets the basis for the lessons to be learned in our next life. It shows us how we created ourselves out of fundamental errors in our thinking and being.
Universal Laws of Creation
To begin this journey into a fully conscious and self-aware state, we have to look at the most primary law of creation, often referred to as the “parent law” or the “sexual principle” that forms the very foundation for all life in the entire material world. This is the Law of the Dyad, also called the Vesica Pisces or “womb of the universe”. This is the point where all things come into being, and where all things of the spirit are transformed. Our spirit as our higher soul is eternal in nature and already exists in a self-created state that evolves itself based on whatever it enters into relationship with that’s of a similar nature. Naturally, when we’re talking about a higher plane and the aspect of ourselves that reside naturally on that plane, we’re referring to the mind and our energetic nature that’s void of a physical body, and is what incarnates into the body as the means of experiencing itself by how it expresses using the body. This is the aspect of ourselves that has no beginning or ending within the material world because it originates on a higher plane (dimension) that exists outside of time and space.
Vesica Pisces is formed by the regeneration of the Monad that then separates
from itself and projects outward in order to form a perception of itself as
another. The Monad is represented by a sphere of energy as a field of
information that’s polar (electromagnetic) in nature and both expands and
contracts (principle of respiration) at the same time within the same space. It
forms the experience of the self (within the body looking out) and the outer
reality of the self, which are both produced simultaneously by the same mind
and soul on different levels and scales. The same pattern (vibratory frequency)
is used to create both (inner and outer) as a kind of metaphorical theme that’s
sets the (outer) stage necessary to act out certain ideas allowing the opportunity
to gain new realizations regarding who’s the one actually creating both. All
reality as we’re capable of knowing it only comes through our perception of it.
We perceive others and the entire outer world to be “like us” in nature because
our mind is what’s creating it all as a projection of known and unknown aspects
As multidimensional beings, once we enter into a body we have both a lower nature, which is unconscious and instinctively driven through emotional states, and a higher nature that’s intelligent and intuitively driven, and always utilized through various forms of self-control and our ability to regulate ourselves by harmonizing both of our natures as the means of self-creating. Energetically, we only resonate with what’s of a similar nature to us, and whatever we enter into and maintain a relationship with through shared qualities we become more like in terms of the qualities being actively expressed and how we’re being as a result. As we absorb the consciousness of another through the interaction that takes place, we blend with it and begin vibrating in harmony with them, conducting ourselves in a similar manner. They act to stimulate qualities in us that we then use to express and create through the activities that naturally ensue from them. Because this is all happening at the unconscious level, meaning naturally and automatically without our direct awareness, we don’t always realize what’s going on and how it is that we’re being transformed by the consciousness of another.
As we participate in the same type of behavior, we produce experiences of our self that transform our identity to be more like that of the person influencing us. All actions produce a correlating reaction of the same nature. Through our conduct we draw specific and immediate consequences to ourselves through another fundamental Law of Cause and Effect. Like always acts to produce more of what’s like itself. Whatever we align ourselves with and become like in attitude and behavior, we use to shape ourselves by modifying our original vibration to form a new pattern as our mental paradigm (shaped out of experiences). Whenever we engage in the same activities of another, becoming more like them in nature, we simultaneously form a similar destiny. Whatever energy we take on as a perception that produces certain types of behavior, determines who we are and the path our life takes by how it serves to organize the events of our life as a dynamic, interrelated series of correspondences. The same act, undertaken for different reasons, still produces the same ripple effect as the consequences of our actions and what they mean about us.
All of reality evolves out of the Parent Law of the Dyad as a new combination (relationship), and is what forms the Triad as its offspring. The Triad represents the reality of the new combination (inner and outer, self and another) formed within the mind and imagination that gives rise to the electromagnetic field as a vibratory frequency for forming an equivalent outer reality of the same nature. Our inner model forms our perceptual lens that we look through in order to perceive the outer world to be of the same nature as we are. All ideas formed in our imagination provide us with a preview of the reality they’ll create, and when played out as a whole experience or scenario, will give us insight into the reality they’ll produce as a series of consequences. Whatever we participate in creating through our actions create not only our outer reality and life situation, but also our inner reality and experience of our self. It’s not what we say that matters, but rather what we do. Our actions always reveal us as they serve to define us.
of the Triad, birthed within the womb of the Dyad as a passionate conception, the
Tetrad is formed as a “mirror image” or reflection of the Triad. Whatever we
imagine with vivid sensory detail we create as a template for producing as an
actual experience of reality. This is how we seed the subconscious with an idea
that we want it to create as an outer reality of the same nature. On the spiritual
plane of the mind and soul thought itself as an imagined experience of reality is
the same as action on the lower, material plane. It’s how we produce something
out of nothing. All ideas made into an internal reality within the mind are
produced by the soul, and act to express the diverse matrix of ideas that make
up the soul as a mental paradigm or vibratory frequency. This is why it’s not
enough to simply refrain from taking action on ideas, but rather not forming
them in the imagination to begin with, because we’re still actively creating
ourselves spiritually by way of our own thoughts by becoming “one in spirit”
with the idea. Any thought dwelled in passionately is being gestated and grown and
will eventually be expressed outwardly through actions of some kind.
The Law of Vibration shows us that all things that are of a similar nature vibrate in harmony with each other and are compatible in terms of co-creating. Whatever frequency we vibrate at, forms our internal nature as a specialized pattern or theme, and determines what we resonate with in the world around us. As we begin resonating with a similar frequency, we are drawn into it and it into us (sympathetic induction), where we mutually influence each other and form a new vibration as the combination of shared qualities. There’s no such thing as being influenced by someone who’s vastly different from us. When we’re stimulated by (form a natural reaction to) people and ideas that we perceive as being of a completely different nature than we are it’s because they’re appealing to unknown (denied and repressed) parts of us that we haven’t been able to successfully integrate and bring into expression in an appropriate and acceptable way.
What we deny and repress, and eventually become unaware of having, still
form a natural part of our outer environment and serves to mirror back to us
our own hidden aspects. All denied and repressed (disowned) parts of us came by
way of how we judged ourselves as being “bad or wrong” somehow, usually
according to how we were taught to judge ourselves by others, and allow us to
once again access those parts of ourselves and make new decisions as to how
we’ll appropriately incorporate them into our natural behavior as the means of
expanding our ability to self-express in new ways. All repressed parts of ourselves
came by how we accepted the values and beliefs of others, rather than
consciously deciding for ourselves. As we accept the morals of others as our
own, we create ourselves by way of their decisions and perceptions, and shape
ourselves to be like them. When we do this, we’re living out of our lower
nature that lacks true self-awareness of the ability to think for ourselves and
create ourselves based on our own conclusions, evaluations, and decisions about
the morality of things.
While most of us have been taught that certain actions and behaviors are always bad and should always be refrained from, the fact is that all behaviors are specialized in nature and appropriate within the right context. Our behavior is only inappropriate when used in the wrong way and for the wrong reason, or when it doesn’t produce the outcome we intended to produce in doing it. All actions create realities as consequences within the material plane and are undertaken for a specific reason. Whenever we react to someone else’s actions, we become the “effect” and create out of an unconscious state. Violence is considered good or bad based on the reason it’s being employed and situation it takes place in. If it’s initiated as the means of hurting someone or taking something from them that’s rightfully theirs, then it’s wrong, bad, and destructive. If it’s used to defend ourselves and our loved ones against the aggressive acts of another, then it’s appropriate, good, and the right thing to do.
up Your Own Rules for Creating Yourself
As higher, sovereign and creative souls, we
have the natural capacities of our higher mind to create ourselves in a willful
and deliberate manner. By understanding the universal laws that govern the
higher and lower planes simultaneously through natural processes, we can gain
the means for developing our own moral code of conduct. We can design our own
system of values that we use to regulate ourselves from a fully conscious
perspective. We can become clear on what our standards are that we use to
evaluate our relationships in terms of what we want to blend with and become
like in nature. We can decide from a clear state of mind, unclouded by emotions
and conditioned issues, what qualities and characteristics we want to embody
and use to create ourselves and our experiences. We can realize that in every
moment we’re making all our decisions by asking ourselves one primary question,
“who am I?” How am I going to be in this moment and in relationship to this
Our moral values involve “qualities” as states of mind that we embody as a “way of being” and use as the means for self-expressing. They involve ideas like honesty, loyalty, integrity, compassion, kindness, generosity, courage, respect, devotion, justice, honor, and so on. Developing a moral code comes by thoroughly thinking about what you know to be right and wrong as your own conscience, and setting guidelines for yourself as standards that you don’t violate under any circumstances. They’re the rules you make up for yourself that prescribe to righteous behavior. They define the type of person you’re creating yourself to be and provide you with the means to do it. They’re what you use in situations where you’re being emotionally triggered into unconscious behaviors, or are being tempted in some way by something you know you don’t really want to do because of who you’ll become by doing it. They provide you with moral guidelines as standards for yourself that you use in making all your decisions as to what you’re going to participate in by becoming it. A moral code provides you with the means for regulating yourself and consistently evolving yourself to a higher level of understanding.
Create Moral Values as the means of Directing your Lower Nature
What we refer to as our lower nature is our body consciousness as our
subconscious mind. All perception and natural behaviors are produced by the
subconscious, which is also the same mind as the collective unconscious that
governs the entire material world of Nature. The subconscious acts as a passive
receptor for the suggestions and commands of the higher, conscious mind, which
acts to seed it with the reality it wants to use as the means of creating
itself. The subconscious doesn’t know the difference between an actual reality
and an imagined one, because they’re both actually created in the same way
through the faculty of the imagination as described in the Law of the Dyad.
Our subconscious doesn’t have the ability to make decisions as the means
of directing itself, and when not being willfully directed by the conscious
mind, creates out of memory, instinct, and illusions formed through emotional
states. It doesn’t know how to process a “negative”, or being told what “not to
do”, and works to create whatever “picture it’s given” as the reality it’s
being directed to create. For this reason all guidelines have to be stated in
the positive as what “to do” and how to be, and not in terms of what not to do.
As you’re forming an image in your mind of what you don’t want, it simply sees
the image as a directive and acts to create it in an automatic fashion without
a conscience. It’s only the conscious, self-aware mind that has the ability to
decide what it wants to create and how wants to be outside of the conditioned
and instinctual nature of the body.
For this reason, all ideas given to it as an internal representation for creating, have to be formed as “what to do”, what quality to employ in place of automatic behaviors, and how it wants to be as an experience of itself. We shape our identity by how we exist in relationship to everything else. The relationship we form not only exchanges energy and ideas with another, but also gives us a sense of ourselves as a particular type of person. As we act either consciously or unconsciously to create our experiences, we simultaneously create ourselves by way of how we associate and identify with them. Whatever quality we’re embodying as a means of expressing and experiencing ourselves, determine who we become as a soul and what type of experiences we act to naturally create more of.
the Nature of Relationship and our ability to Discriminate
Naturally, the type of person we become through our own conscious acts
also determines the nature of our relationships and what we act (decide) to
attract, repel, and transform. If we decide, for example, that we’re going to
be a loyal person, it doesn’t mean that we stay loyal to those who aren’t loyal
themselves, or remain loyal to those who turn their back on us during difficult
moments, or outright betray us somehow, but rather maintain the ability to
discern the difference, and end our relationship with them when we realize they
don’t warrant our loyalty. When we realize that they are of a poor character,
or have different values than we do, we also realize that our continued
relationship with them will only stimulate and bring out in us the same type of
attitudes and behaviors, creating more experiences of disloyalty. If you’re
truly a loyal person, then you won’t willingly maintain a relationship with a disloyal
person. If however, you’re creating an illusion of yourself as being loyal by
contrasting and being hurt by a disloyal person, you’ll maintain the
relationship in order to continue acting out the drama involved, which is what
you’re really using to create yourself.
If honesty is a moral value for us, and we’re in relationship with
someone who is dishonest and has values that justify lying, then we don’t argue
to try and change them or make them see their faults (according to us), but
simply acknowledge their tendency to be this way, and end our relationship with
them as a result. Like always produces and acts to create more of what’s like
itself. Whatever morals we set for ourselves, sets standards and guidelines for
what type of relationships we naturally form and maintain with a sense of
awareness. If we value honesty, yet tolerate lying, and are willing to stay in
relationship with a dishonest person, then our value as a standard for
ourselves becomes dishonesty. Whatever we tolerate and allow through the
relationships that we maintain in a consistent fashion sets the standards as a
type of experience and moral character that we use to create ourselves to be of
a similar nature.
we realize we’re doing this without direct awareness of what we’re doing and
why, then it provides the mirror for us to look at parts of ourselves that are
operating in us unconsciously. It shows us where there’s conflict between the
unknown and chosen parts of us. It shows us how we’re working against our self
in being able to make conscious decisions for how we’re going to be and what
kind of person we are. If we choose honesty as a moral value that we use to
direct all of our own behavior, that means that even in the moments when we
find ourselves tempted to lie for whatever reason, we make our self be honest
instead. We use it to discipline ourselves and hold ourselves to our code of
honor as an honest person. We use it as the means for guiding ourselves in
moments when we’re triggered into an unconscious state as an emotional reaction
or where we feel tempted because of the nature of the situation at hand that ultimately
results in being dishonest.
Even in the event that we find ourselves being dishonest for some reason, we can self-reflect on what caused it, and make the necessary corrections to our own actions. If you can justify your right to be dishonest (telling a white lie so you don’t hurt someone’s feelings) and therefore give yourself exceptions to your own rule, then it’s not an actual “moral value” or true standard. In this case you can either use it to correct your own perspective and perception of the situation or you can eliminate it as a moral value. This doesn’t make you wrong or a bad person for being dishonest, it’s simply how you’re choosing to conduct yourself as a certain type of person, and reveals your willingness to create an illusion in place of what you know to be true. As you make a decision to allow yourself to be dishonest, you’ll naturally attract people who are also dishonest (where it’ll be accepted as part of the relationship) and co-create situations that are based on lying. Either way, it’s how you’re using your own will to create yourself as the type of person who participates in creating whatever reality results from it.
Unified Nature of Things
when we set a standard for ourselves as being honest, especially to ourselves,
we use that anytime we find ourselves in a situation where we’re being tempted
to lie, and force ourselves instead to be honest. All values exist as a “system
of values” (rather than independent of each other) that all play off of and are
interdependent with each other. One produces and acts as complementary to the
others. In being honest we demonstrate integrity, which is honorable, warrants
respect, and makes us trustworthy. Likewise all people who are honest and
therefore have integrity also command our respect and we come to trust them. If
we’re willing to lie in the right situation, then we lack integrity, are not
trustworthy, and are seldom respected by others once they realize we’re lying. So
our moral values and standards, like our beliefs, exist in a unified state as a
dynamic system. One value produces, validates, and maintains all of the other
ones through the relationship they form with each other. Just as our beliefs
are formed out of a whole system of interrelated beliefs that together form all
of our perceptions and how we interpret the events of our life to give them
Whatever values we hold and the standards we set for ourselves as the
means of governing our own conduct through our higher nature, becomes the most
prominent means of creating our self from a fully conscious state. It’s how we
step outside of our conditioning where we were created by others while in a
predominantly unconscious state, and act on ourselves to transform ourselves to
a higher idea. All spiritual development comes through our moral development
and our ability to be self-determined through our own choices and actions. It
comes through our ability to form correct perceptions of ourselves by the
mirror others provide, and make actual decisions about how we’re going to be in
relationship with everything else. It comes through realizing who we are and
how we’re being in the most ordinary sense. We’re able to let go of the
illusions we were conditioned with through our upbringing, and step into the
realm of self-awareness where we realize we can direct our own mind and actions
in a deliberate and precise manner by using our will to discipline ourselves in
acting out our decisions. When we wake-up in the midst of the reality created
from an unconscious state and begin seeing things in a new light, we become
clear on the fact that in every moment we’re making the decisions as to who
we’re going to be, and begin consistently imposing a direction on our life as the
one who’s consciously creating our own destiny.
The Art of Creating Yourself as a
Higher Level of Consciousness
The most notable difference between
humans and animals lies in our ability to create ourselves in an intentional
and deliberate manner. We all suffer from a common dilemma due to the fact that
we’re multidimensional beings and manifest into the world through an
animal-like body, and as a result, have what we call both a higher and lower
nature. We’re all born as children into our lower nature where only our
subconscious is active and dominant, and is what forms our personality through
how we’re conditioned by others in our formative years. All of our formative
conditioning, which is what forms all of our core-beliefs that later spawn a
whole series of correlated beliefs as our “belief-system” and mental paradigm,
is accomplished while we’re in a primary form of hypnosis.
We don’t develop our conscious,
self-aware mind until we enter adolescence, where our primary nature is already
established and we tend to continue the process of being shaped and determined
by others and our social environment. The self-conscious aspect of our mind
begins developing around seven or eight, and becomes fully developed as young
adults. By the time we enter our mid to late twenties our self-conscious mind
is fully developed and we’re capable of assuming the responsibility for creating
ourselves, yet often don’t know how because we’ve never been taught. Very few
of us are ever taught how to use our mind and imagination in order to choose
how we want to be, and then act to willfully create ourselves in a deliberate
and controlled manner.
We don’t need to undergo years of psychotherapy and numerous healing modalities as a means of finding ourselves or dissolving the psychological wounds that prevent us from living a fully conscious and self-aware life. We can’t begin accessing our true nature as our higher self while we’re submerged in and still identifying with the conditioned consciousness of our upbringing, which was formed out of an unconscious and unaware state. As long as we’re living the stories of our youth by replaying selected memories over and over, continuing to identify with them, we remain locked in a prison of our own making. We possess the key to our own freedom, but usually don’t realize it, or don’t know how to use it when we do realize it.
Forming an Image of Yourself
Throughout our life from around 12 to 14
years on, we begin forming our higher faculties which involves creating our
identity. Our identity, or what’s referred to as the “I” or “I am” of the
higher Soul is the most natural way we self-create in an automatic fashion. As
humans we form a personal identity that separates us from others while still
fitting into the group mind. It’s by way of our ability to choose and actively
create our own style and identity that we begin forging ourselves through the
experiences we create of ourselves. As we associate ourselves with others, we
act “on ourselves” to create ourselves to be like them in some way. As we both
like and therefore relate to someone, or dislike and fail to relate to them, we
shape an image of ourselves in relationship with them.
Whatever traits and emotional states the people we maintain relationships with have and are actively and openly expressing, serves to develop those same emotions and traits in us. All true creation as the act of producing a “new element” through a unique combination of qualities comes naturally as part of our development through our relationships. By combining two qualities that are of a similar yet unique nature, we systematically produce a third as a new way of being and functioning. As we enter into relationship with different types of people they serve to stimulate us in new ways that bring out different qualities and ways of being in us and we develop those qualities by way of whatever dynamic we play out through the nature of the relationship itself. In this way, qualities and dynamics are always intimately related. As we embody a way of being we naturally assume acting out the same type of dynamic we used initially in actively expressing it.
Unconsciously Creating Ourselves
Most people go through their entire life
creating themselves through their relationships and who and what they associate
with or live in near proximity of, without ever realizing it. This is what an
“unconscious state” is, you don’t have an actual awareness or realization of
what you’re doing to yourself or why, because you do it automatically without having
to “think about it”. Thinking as its being used here, is when we step back for
a moment, detach from the idea and emotions involved briefly, and view it from
a purely non-personal perspective where we move out of our “story about” things
and are able to intuitively perceive the laws that are operating instead. We form
a momentary evaluation of ourselves in terms of how we’re “sensing ourselves”
as that type of person, and we decide whether or not we’ll use it as the means
of continuing to develop ourselves in that way.
From an unconscious perspective we view everything from within our personal awareness acquired through our formative conditioning where we began forming a story about ourselves and life in general as a kind of theme. This story, formed as a way of trying to make sense out of what was happening to us while not possessing the ability to view it in a detached and logical manner, formed the basis for our “life theme” that we then continue to live out of as adults. The unconscious mind is instinctual and emotionally driven, which means it’s the state we were in during emotionally intense experiences that formed the meaning they had for us that we then began identifying with through the story we told ourselves about it. Because our identity is formed out of the meaningful story we’re always telling ourselves internally through our thoughts, feelings, and emotions, we can have trouble changing because we find it too difficult to give up our story about ourselves. It’s through our identity that we know “how to be” in different situations. To give up our story is to not know “who we are”.
In order to create something new and
different you have to let go of the old and step into unknown ideas about
yourself where you create yourself as a different “type” of person. The
motivating force of the subconscious mind is “self-preservation” and
maintaining the status quo. It creates by repeating whatever patterns as
habitual tendencies it’s been programmed with. It does this by way of
maintaining consistent emotional states, which tend to run our thoughts and
imagination, making it very powerful and somewhat hard to manage. Our
subconscious produces all of our natural perceptions and behaviors, and is the
essential means for all forms of personal transformation as self-facilitated
growth and development.
What this tells us is that in order to truly change as a means of actively creating ourselves, we have to not only work with the subconscious, but we also have to “speak to it” in its own language. One of the problems people have is they don’t realize that not only do the two aspects of their material mind speak and communicate in different ways, but also play different roles and functions in creating the same thing. We only change and grow ourselves while in a particular body and personality by learning how to use our self-conscious mind to direct and influence our subconscious, which is what it’s actually designed to do. The means by which we do this is by realizing the natural laws that govern the mind and learning how to work intelligently with them in a cooperative and intentional manner.
Self-Creation and the Art of
While many approach this idea by
imagining that they need a clean slate, this is never the answer. All
intentional self-creation, which is only possible as a mature adult with a
fully developed self-conscious (grey matter of the brain) mind, comes as
transformation of an existing quality and character trait to another that’s of a
complementary nature. Habits are never “broke” or simply stopped, but are
instead replaced by better, more beneficial habits. The largest part of our
being is conducted below the level of awareness and comes as a natural way of
being in the world that we’re doing all the time, even when we’re not aware of
it or making it a point to do it. You know when you’ve actually changed when it
becomes a natural part of your subconscious mind and you no longer have to
produce it in a thoughtful and deliberate way. It simply becomes a natural part
of your awareness and perception of the outer world, and forms natural and
automatic behaviors as a result.
All transformation comes through the act of altering the “state” of something. We move something from an existing state and set of conditions to another, more desirable state. The basic principle for doing this is through a practical understanding of polarity. All things not only exist in polarity to everything else, but also in a polar state of complementary opposites that are an inherent part of the same pattern. We have to remove our attention from the outer appearance of things and direct it instead to the “inner nature” that’s acting to give it life and animate it with a certain type of character. We have to move from thinking in materialistic terms and perceive energetically (spiritually) instead. The outer appearance of a being is somewhat irrelevant outside of the fact that it’s produced in relationship with the spiritual being inhabiting and using it to express through. All personal transformation only comes by way of intentionally developing your character, which is what produces all of your perceptions, attitude and style of thinking, emotions, and correlating behaviors and activities.
Self-Reflection and Realizing Your
In order to consciously begin this
dynamic process of self-creation, we have to start by first becoming aware of
what exists within us as latent potential. We all come into this world as a
Soul that has a specific design. Our design is formed out of a dynamic matrix
of qualities and characteristics, which are formed by the personalization of
archetypal energies we share with all of mankind (zodiac), that are either active
or dormant, and are developed to certain degrees and potencies through our
formative conditioning as children. Through our childhood conditioning only
some aspects and qualities are stimulated and brought out in us, and then
developed into strengths through the dynamics being played out by our family
and prominent relationships, and others remain latent and untapped. So wherever
you are and whoever you’ve become at this point in your life is due to a
certain formula of active and latent potential.
Whatever exists in you as underutilized potential exists as a form of raw, untried qualities that were developed to different degrees in previous lives, and are available for expression and continued development in this life. Whatever hasn’t been brought out and developed in us through life events and circumstances can be actively “chosen”, and brought out through active use of your will, or you can consciously place yourself in relationships of various sorts that will act to naturally stimulate them and provide the dynamics through which you can develop them. In the same manner, qualities that we’ve been trained to express in negative and unproductive or destructive ways, can be transformed through self-awareness and consciously choosing to replace them with their opposing complementary aspect.
Creating an Ideal
Like all acts of conscious creation you
have to begin by creating a vision or symbolic idea of what it is you’re going
to create. Your vision for creating as a form of self-expression has to be
undertaken through a form of inspiration. All transformation comes as growth of
some kind, and the idea you create has to require you to “grow into it”. We
only grow through effort and striving, so it needs to be something you aspire
towards that creates a kind of “labor of love”. All possibility for growth only
comes by making latent potential and energies active and outwardly expressive.
We can only grow what’s already within us as an inactive part of our nature.
We don’t ever grow and transform ourselves
by acquiring something that we don’t already possess. The only thing that can
be awakened in us is what’s already there in a dormant and inactive state. So
in creating an “ideal” of yourself as your best possibility, never look outside
or for someone else to tell you how you should be. This is purely an “inside
job” and everything you need to undertake a transformational journey to your
higher self is within you simply waiting to be discovered and brought to life
through realization, actively choosing it, and willfully embodying it as the
means for expressing yourself in a different way. This is something that only
you do to yourself. As an adult with a fully developed self-conscious mind, nobody
else is ever doing anything “to you” without your consent and willing
Your “ideal” can be thought of as a higher, more authentic and true version of yourself. It comes through the decision to develop yourself to be the best you can be. It’s the art of bringing your full potential into an active and expressive state. It’s creating a model as a kind of blueprint or diagram for transforming all qualities that have been developed in a negative and self-destructive manner. It becomes the model of yourself that you use as the means of self-reflecting and realizing all the qualities and traits in you that need to be transformed in order to achieve your highest possibility for self-creating as your normal way of being.
An ideal provides you with the means for
recognizing parts of yourself you don’t like to acknowledge or own so that you
can finally act on yourself to change them in whatever way you want to. Your
ideal self shouldn’t pertain to purely physical goals in terms of enhancing your
body or acquiring worldly success, but rather to your inner essence and the
qualities you naturally possess that are “causal” in nature, and act to
systematically produce the equivalent outer manifestation as your perception and
interpretation of reality. Our inner nature (Soul) always produces the outer
nature as a by-product or equivalent analogy.
What we refer to as “qualities” are
metaphorical and therefore universal in nature, and when embodied and used to
express yourself, produce a certain “way of being” that naturally causes you to
live a certain way by telling a certain type of story. Our current personality
and identity are produced automatically through the combination and formula of
active energies as qualities that work to produce our natural characteristics.
By changing the formula being used to actively self-express, we change our
inner nature and how we naturally are in the world, and we begin “sensing
ourselves” in new and different ways. So the first step required to consciously
create yourself is to develop an idea about yourself that brings a heightened
sense of awareness to all of your inner qualities, gifts, talents, special
abilities, interests, likes and dislikes, traits, values, and attitude and
beliefs, in order to form an objective and unbiased image of yourself as you
currently exist. Then form an image of how you’d like to be instead as the full
expression of all your special talents and abilities.
Our ideal should be something only we create and should serve to invoke a deep feeling of reverence in us as the means of achieving it. It should be comprised of qualities and ways of being that we respect, admire, adore, honor, and ultimately fall in love with. It should inspire us with feelings of beauty, love, and devotion in its creation. All Artists always create out of a love for their subject and the joy of creating as an “experience”. If we create it in a way that makes us feel hard-pressed to become it through a form of drudgery, where we struggle and suffer in some way, then we not only won’t accomplish it, but will come to resent and ultimately resist it. It’s the attitude we employ that determines our approach and method. Whatever feeling we embody as the means of creating determines the actual outcome that’s produced.
The outcomes of all goals are determined
by the feeling and experience we create in pursuing it. If your ideal doesn’t
inspire you with a kind of unconditional love for its creation, then you either
need to keep working with it or start over with a different attitude. You don’t
want to make it unrealistic, but rather even more realistic because it’s
something that lives inside of you as a possibility for your life. You should
focus on qualities and character traits that you want or would need as a way of
“becoming it”. It’s not the physical body as an “image” that you’re going for,
but rather the “type of person” you become as a way of being.
Once you have your ideal formulated in a specific way, you can use it as a rule or general guide for making decisions and creating in all areas of your life. It becomes the vision and focal point for your life that provides you with the means for directing all of your activities and making moment by moment decisions by asking yourself “who am I?” and how am I going to be right now in relationship with this? It provides you with the outline for producing a whole series of smaller goals as the process necessary for achieving it in a step-by-step manner. You don’t want to try and make too many changes at once because it can become overwhelming and may only act instead to scatter your energies and prevent you from concentrating. Most life changes come as a sequence of activities where one lays the foundation necessary for the next one to systematically emerge and take place. One of the most common ways we sabotage ourselves is by bringing to many things into the picture all at once that serves to create an experience of struggling, loss, and suffering as a result.
You want to pick one quality, habit or
tendency, or one area of your life that you want to transform, concentrate all
of your attention and effort into creating that, and don’t move onto the next
until it’s been thoroughly accomplished as a “natural part of you”. You know
when you’ve succeeded in apprehending or transforming a quality when it becomes
a natural part of your perception and natural way of being without having to
think about it or put effort into it. This usually takes around 40 days or 6
weeks to accomplish by “building it into the muscle” as a spontaneous part of
your nature and identity. Once it becomes natural and automatic it lays the
foundation necessary for you to move on to the next goal.
The secret to creation and
transformation lies in self-awareness, making clear decisions from a fully
conscious state, and concentrating your mind without distractions or going
unconscious and losing track of what you’re doing. It comes by forming a “devoted
practice” where you concentrate on a single idea for the period of time it
takes to turn it into a habit as a natural way of being in the world. If you
lose your focus and forget what you’re doing for several days because you get
distracted and caught up in stuff, reverting back to a fundamentally unconscious
state, simply realize and become aware of it, and redirect your attention back
onto your goal and continue practicing. The more you do this the easier it gets
and the longer you can remain fully conscious in your life. All life skills
only come by way of consistent and devoted practice as a love for the work
