“11” – Universal Justice, the Law of Cause and Effect, and the Nature of Karma
Posted On July 23, 2019

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.
