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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Understanding, Honoring, and Properly Utilizing the Power of Words

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Instinct – Passion and Prejudice

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

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

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

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

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

The Four Indispensable Conditions of the Magi

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

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

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

Self-Knowledge and Realization

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

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

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

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

Vibratory Scale, Planes of Existence, and Parallel Dimensions

Vibration is energy that moves and vibrates in a circular, spiraling motion. This spiraling motion of vibration is created from the dual nature of energy known in scientific terms as polarity or electromagnetism, and in spiritual traditions as the feminine and masculine opposites of the same thing. Every living form is composed, formed and held together, and organized into patterns by opposite yet complementary forces, which both pull together and push apart at the same time, creating ‘form’ as a stabilized and ‘fixed’ system. Opposite forces never ‘touch’ or reconcile, and when concentrated, form a spinning motion as a spiral or sphere that revolves around opposite poles. Living form as organized matter, exists and appears solid and whole through invisible forces that stimulate each other into an active state, discharging and expressing, then returning to a passive state, only to be stimulated into and active state again, as a form of back-and-forth, cause and effect, or perpetual motion. A life form exists as both passive and active, as material in nature, and as the activity or behaviors that animate the material form.

The differences between the different manifestations of the universal power of vibration are due to differing rates and modes of vibration. This formative quality of vibration that composes the material world and animates form, exists as scales of vibratory frequencies interlaced within a hierarchical structure that forms an accumulative, building affect as a progression. A vibratory scale, like a musical scale, is organized as seven levels or rates and modes of vibration that together form a ‘frequency’ as an octave, whole unit, or level of reality, as a ‘state’ that possesses a certain level of consciousness. A vibratory state operates on multiple levels within the same unified whole as the mental, sensory, emotional, and physical aspects, all of which form correspondences with each other as a harmonious inner and outer pattern of the same nature. Whatever frequency the form exists as an expression or byproduct of, also forms the outer world or reality the form exists within as a correspondence, or that’s of the same nature as a quality and level of consciousness. So vibratory frequencies form levels or planes of existence that all have different ‘types’ of reality associated with them.

As we increase the rate of vibration, the mode of consciousness associated with it changes also. Based on rate or speed of vibration, it moves up or down the vibratory scale as a higher and lower vibration separated as ‘degrees’ within the same frequency. One scale that’s comprised of seven levels or degrees of the same thing, all exist ‘within’ each other as outgrowths that form a progressive growth process as an accumulative affect, where the lower level is completely contained as a full expression in the higher level, and acts as the foundation out of which it grows or multiples, to reach the next level. Each step up the scale is a building process that expands, intensifies, and becomes fuller. When a full scale is accomplished as the full expression of every level simultaneously, it systematically moves (is absorbed into) to a higher scale as the lowest level of that scale, providing the foundation for continued growth and expansion to still higher levels of consciousness, each of which contain within them different levels and types of reality.

Each level as a progressive movement up the scale evolves us to higher and higher levels of consciousness that produce or are accompanied by different levels and types of reality. All form comes as a growth process, where one level provides the foundation necessary for the next to spontaneously emerge out of it. So as we move up a progressive scale as a building, growing, accumulative process of vibrating at higher and faster rates, our consciousness changes in a corresponding fashion as our mental, emotional, and physical state or condition. Our state of mind simultaneously produces our emotional and physical states as the equivalent or as being of the same nature and likeness. Our physical state is what makes up both our physical body and our physical environment, which are all formed by the same vibratory rate and mode of consciousness as a plane, realm, or level of reality.

As we move up the scale, increasing our level of consciousness as our vibratory frequency, we move into higher planes of existence. Each plane forms a unique and different type of reality as a parallel dimension that exists within a unified reality as different aspects and degrees of the same overall idea. As we move from one extreme or level to the next as a gradual process of development by integrating and assimilating new information, we change and expand our mental paradigm (vibratory structure of our mind) allowing us to readily see and comprehend things we couldn’t before, and as a result we see the world in a new way. As we gain greater and greater forms of comprehension, we literally act to form new types of reality through our perception of them. All reality exists as a perception. Reality only truly exists through our ability to perceive it. As our mental paradigm and filters change, our perception changes, and our experience of reality changes. As our experience of reality changes, we move up a ladder to higher and higher realms, each with new and expanded forms of reality.

We can only move into higher dimensions by growing ourselves through the integration of knowledge that broadens our range of perception as the vibration of that dimension. By gaining knowledge that’s integrated through practice, we increase our consciousness and vibration, and are absorbed into new and higher realms of reality. Our reality always corresponds and is produced by our vibratory frequency. You can’t practice (live out of) the consciousness of a lower vibration and transcend into a higher one. It’s only knowledge that’s brought into practice and obtained through experience that alters our vibration as the mental structure of our mind. The mind is what produces reality, and reality as a type of experience is a direct window into our mind as a quality and level of existence.

The most basic form of spiritual development, which is the same as mind development, is through daily study of spiritual science as doctrine that provides knowledge of the universal principles as a concept or theory to be used as the basis for daily practice by applying them. Only knowledge that’s lived and absorbed through the experience of it, forming a memory of it as a vibratory pattern, alters the actual structure of our mind. Experience as reality and the structure of the mind are the same thing. As we experience we integrate and reshape our minds through incorporating the experience, modifying and upgrading it to perform the knowledge as a natural behavior and normal way of perceiving the world. You know you’ve learned (live and earned) something, when it becomes a natural part of how you are and what you see and experience in others and the world around you.

Vibration forms energy into patterns as a dynamic model or sphere of consciousness as our paradigm (model of the world), which forms our perception of ourselves and everything else. Out of our paradigm come our thoughts, imaginings, emotional states, and the ability to comprehend and make sense of things. Whatever exists as a reality or idea outside of our paradigm, is not a part of our perceivable reality, and therefore exists on a different plane of existence. We literally can’t see it, feel or sense it, and therefore it doesn’t exist as being real to us. As we incorporate new ideas through study, we can perceive and comprehend those same ideas as an inherent part of our reality and experience. So the way to move to higher levels of reality, is through the acquisition and daily practice of knowledge, which becomes wisdom. The wise are those who know through experience. It’s only by becoming one with an idea, letting it come into fruition through you as an activity or behavior, that we “acquire it”, and become the same as it in form. It becomes an inherent part of our structure and make-up, as a pattern that vibrates as a certain frequency.

We’re all living in a dynamic series of alternate realities as different versions of the same overall reality. Every mind vibrates to a slightly different vibration and sees reality in a unique and diverse way. No two people are ever seeing the same thing, or experiencing it in the same way. Within each level of the hierarchical scale as a plane of existence, there are an infinite number of possibilities all being played out at the same time. What we call our material world of mass consciousness where everyone is seeing and experiencing the same basic type of reality, is only one dimension and plane of existence out of an infinite number of possibilities that are all coexisting, interlaced, and simultaneously taking place within the same space and time. In order to access a different level or type of existence, we have to grow or diminish ourselves to the vibration of that level. We only move up the scale by cultivating ourselves to the level of consciousness that partakes in the reality of that dimension. A single dimension is formed by an infinite number of variations as gradients that are all within the same overall or greater frequency.

Each higher plane contains within it the entire lower plane(s) as a full expression or “whole reality”. The upper plane oversees or “looks down” and sees the lower plane in its entirety. So while ‘in’ the lower plane we have the experience of time taking place as a linear and sequential unfolding of events, that has a past, present, and future, yet from the perspective of the higher plane directly above and parallel to us, everything has already happened, and the lower plane is viewed as a whole reality that’s fully expressed. In other words, time as we know it, only exists within the plane we’re in because we can’t see it in its entirety as already happened, or happening all at once, and so we imagine that there’s such a thing as the future which hasn’t taken place yet. Naturally, this realization of law as a hierarchical scale in which the entire lower plane is fully contained in ‘whole form’ within the higher plane, opens up many questions and realizations about the true nature of the soul, of life and destiny, and to the true significance of choice and free will to create our reality as we go through a linear time-frame of an unknown and uncreated origin.

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

thought

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

 

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

spacious mind

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

 

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

Afterlife - alien planet - DMT - stargate

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

 

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

etheric-body-in-Atlanteanr-times

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

Merkabah – Resonance, Sympathetic Induction, and Coherence as the Vehicle for Ascension

merka
The idea of the Merkabah, which is typically represented by the interlaced triangles of the Hexad, or what some refer to as the Star of David, in scientific terms associates the idea with the laws that govern it and are necessary in order to perform what the idea suggests. The term “Merkabah” means “light vehicle” that is used as the means to ascend into higher dimensions. While sacred geometry and the principles and laws they represent are multi-dimensional and have as many diverse forms of meaning as there are people interpreting them to find their secrets as encoded messages, they also represent set laws that can be used in numerous ways as practical guidelines and tools for creating not only within the physical realm, but simultaneously in the astral, mental, and causal realms. Laws as geometric shapes form a series of correspondences with letters, numbers, colors, sounds, states, planetary influences, and so on, that give us explicit instructions for how to use our own mind-body system to move between higher and lower dimensions, which exist as planes of a greater unified dimension, all of which operate according to the same set of universal laws.

 
The basic idea behind the Heptad as two interlace triangles, one pointing down, and the other up, is “equilibrium” or harmony between the higher planes and the lower planes. It also represents the idea of structure, function, and order which are the very basis of law itself, which says that the form of something determines how it functions or behaves and the order or growth process it naturally undertakes through a process of unfolding or becoming. Vibration itself (as consciousness) takes on a form as patterning with distinct behaviors as a kind of personality. The planes of light and matter, and of mind over matter, or the fact that the mind is the same thing as matter in a different state, separated only be degrees of vibration. The higher plane of light, being of a higher vibration is invisible or translucent to the lower plane of solid matter, which moves at a considerably slower rate. Because all planes are of the same basic energetic substance, separated only by degrees of vibration as a kind of scale that moves from higher to lower, the way to move within these interlaced planes is by altering your vibratory frequency as your quality of consciousness.

merk

In order to achieve the level of consciousness we call God, which is pure and Divine in nature vibrating at the highest rate and existing on the higher levels of a unified consciousness, we have to become “like God” in order to “know God”. The God’s, so to speak, never come down from heaven, because to do so they’d have to lower their vibration as a degradation or corruption of their consciousness, as in the legend of the “fallen angels”, and so work with the lower planes through the soul or astral body of man as an intermediary or medium between planes. The way we move between planes is by achieving the low end of the frequency of the higher plane, so we can resonate with it, and be drawn into it through sympathetic induction, where we begin vibrating at the same rate. This is why all spiritual traditions involve a form of personal transformation as the means of being “god-like”, cultivating in us the same attributes and qualities as God as the means of raising our vibration and level of consciousness to the point where we can ascend naturally to higher dimensions. We are energetic beings whose vibratory frequency demonstrates our level and of quality of conscious, intuitively, intellectually, and morally.

 
As humans we possess three levels or aspects of the mind, represented by the triangle of the trinity, referred to as the higher mind or Self, the subconscious or lower mind, and the conscious or self-conscious mind, which is the aspect most think of when we use the term “mind”. Being of the lower-animal kingdom, governed by the subconscious mind which exists in a primary state of automatic or instinctual functions performed without direct awareness or creative use of thought and will, exists in a fundamental state of hypnosis as a part of the group mind of the astral plane of mass consciousness, and is often completely operated out of suggestions received from the environment and conditioning their programmed with in their formative years. Because our vibration is set and developed through our consciousness and ability to think for ourselves, we raise our vibration through creative thinking that cultivates our individuality. If we simply think the thoughts of our training, and never really realize the power of our will to self create, then we remain energetically apart of the lower realm of the animal kingdom of the Earth plane.

Merkaba

In order to “draw into us” consciousness as a quality of being and knowledge of the principles that govern the material realm, we have to be of the same vibratory frequency or within close enough range that we can still draw it into us by resonating with it. The way we move between a hierarchy of parallel and inter-nested planes of existence, as levels of consciousness or intelligence, is through sympathy. When we exist within a certain range of vibration, we can resonate with other vibrations within that same frequency. Through resonance, energy as qualities of consciousness merge into each other, equalize and form coherence and begin vibrating harmoniously by forming a combination as “one consciousness”. When the lower vibration raises itself to come within range of the higher vibration, an induction takes place, and it draws the lower vibration into a higher rate of vibration, where it forms a new level of consciousness as its normal and consistent frequency.

 
By raising our vibration to the highest point of the lower plane to come into near proximity of the lower range of the higher plane, it causes a paradigm shift as the vibratory structure of the mind that incorporates new awareness, shifting and expanding its ability to conceive of new realities. Through this vibratory paradigm shift, which systematically upgrades and modifies all ideas held in the mind that involves and is affected by the new realizations, the mind is literally restructured and transformed to be able to perceive and understand higher worlds that exist simultaneously within the worlds of the lower planes.

merkabah

In order to attain the consciousness of higher planes, and draw it into us, we have to develop ourselves to the level of that plane. We can only attain what is equivalent to us, or that which we are similar to in nature. We have to develop ourselves to higher levels in order to use them for our mental and emotional transformation. We can only “know God” by becoming the same as God, by becoming “god-like” in consciousness and identifying with our divine nature. This is why all initiatory processes involve purifying the soul, releasing attachments to our material existence, cultivating virtues to develop our morality, and through the constant study of philosophy, the arts, and the sciences. A pure mind that possesses knowledge of the higher worlds is necessary to be able to act as the tuner and receiver for higher vibration, in order to lift ourselves to the Heavens. We have to engage in a devotional practice of attaining higher knowledge through meditation, concentration, contemplation, and by bringing that knowledge into a daily practice. We acquire it like we acquire anything, by merging with it, embodying it, becoming the channel for it, and transforming ourselves through the synthesis of it. Only through sympathy do we attain the knowledge, essence, qualities, and virtues necessary to vibrate at a higher rate.

 
Through self-realization of our true nature, not as unique beings or advanced animals, but as divine beings with the ability to self-create, we let go of our personal agendas of a selfish nature, and step into our roles as universal beings that are “in this world, but not of it”. As divine beings sent here to evolve mankind by merging into them, becoming one with them in mind and body, while still maintaining awareness of our true identity and creative power to transcend and therefore evolve mankind from the inside out.

 
All growth and development is self-facilitated. It comes only through desire, devotion and willful effort. No one can make us learn or grow or do our work for us. We are the sole creators of our experiences and of ourselves. What we are always looking for outside of ourselves actually resides inside of us, waiting to be awakened and consciously birthed while in the body. Only through self-awareness and knowledge of ourselves as we truly are can we actively and consciously undergo the process of personal transformation by purifying our mind and body and tuning ourselves with the proper qualities and thoughts that intentionally develop our vibratory frequency allowing us to ascend one plane at a time, undergoing the process of death and rebirth while still living, so that at the death of our body our soul will permanently reside on the higher planes of consciousness which is our true home.

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

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

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

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

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

phoenix

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

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

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

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

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

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

souls_sphere_

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

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