The Art of Modeling – How to Consciously Create Yourself

 

Our most basic ability to create in life is our ability to self-create by intentionally developing our character as qualities and traits that produce natural behaviors. Most of us were created in a purely unconscious manner through stimulus – response as a natural part of our childhood conditioning, and we just kind of ended up the way we are, often without realizing that we can willfully recondition ourselves by deciding how we want to be, what qualities we want to develop in ourselves, and undergoing the process necessary to do it. The process of self-creation is something we’re all born knowing how to do, that usually gets “taught out of us” as we become young adults, because it comes most naturally as “pretending” and play-acting.

As children, we admire and relate to certain people, roles, qualities and characteristics, imaginary heroes, or to the characters in story books or movies. We all have those characters that we immediately resonate with and want to be like. We would then set up imaginary situations and scenarios, where we acted them out by embodying and employing the same qualities and characteristics as our favorite character. By playing in this way, we developed those same qualities in ourselves by becoming like them, by acting like them, talking like them, and taking on the same persona while engaging in the same type of activities, and so on. Because our personality wasn’t well established yet, and we hadn’t begun forming our identity, we were like fresh clay that was easily molded into different shapes. We were flexible, open to trying new things, spontaneous, and enjoyed experimenting with new ways of being. We didn’t have the inhibitions and limitations as beliefs of some form, nor the fears and insecurity around certain ways of being, and we engaged in various activities with a sense of innocence, joy, and curiosity. As teenagers, when we began developing our identity by coming into ourselves and learning how to think and make decisions for ourselves, we spent much of our time trying on different persona’s in order to find the ones that fit and that we felt most comfortable and natural with, except by this time, we were largely motivated and inhibited by other life issues and personality traits that had set in and were becoming a natural part of our everyday expression.

Yet this same process is how we continue to self-create as adults with established identities and habitual behaviors as ways of being in the world. As adults however, it requires a deliberate intention, choosing what qualities we want to employ, and a willingness to be awkward and unnatural at first (everything takes practice), and a form of dedicated discipline to consistently act them out until they become natural, built into the muscle, and an automatic part of us. We start by realizing what qualities and traits we admire in others, or want to develop in ourselves, and then we find someone who possesses and employs those qualities as part of their natural demeanor, and we study them. How are they doing it? What does this quality look like when it’s being expressed? How do they hold themselves, what postures, gestures, idiosyncrasies, facial expressions, or what are they doing with their physiology? How do they talk, what tone of voice, timing, rhythm, and words or type of language do they use? What emotional state and attitude do they embody, and what state of mind do they view things through? What are their beliefs that make their attitude and actions possible? How is it that they “do” whatever it is that they’re “doing”?

If you want to develop confidence, for example, you have to start by asking yourself, what does confidence look like? What is it that someone does that gives the impression of being confident? You then find someone you know that you feel demonstrates or comes across as being confident, and you study them. As you study them, you embody the same qualities and behaviors – straight posture, relaxed demeanor, eye contact, tone of voice, etc. – and you practice being like them. You don’t have to worry about appearing to “copy them”, because imitating simply provides a pathway for your own style to emerge naturally. Once you get the behaviors down and can “be” that way yourself, then you practice being that way throughout your day just as a general way of being. Practice it repeatedly and in as many situations as you can, until it starts feeling natural and you start doing it automatically or it starts becoming a natural way of being in all situations as a personality trait.

What you’ll notice is that just by changing your physiology to match theirs, you “feel different”. You sense yourself in a new way, and your outlook and perspective changes. You create an experience of yourself as being confident. You come to know what it means to be confident as an actual experience of yourself. As you begin experiencing yourself in new ways, you become associated to that way of being, and you begin identifying with it. You know what it means to feel confident through the experience of pretending to be, and you become it. We become whatever we pretend to be. By modeling behaviors, we simultaneously change our perspective, how we look at and approach things, how we feel about ourselves, what we tell ourselves about how we’re feeling, and the very nature of our thoughts change accordingly. We change how we feel about ourselves, about others, and about life in general. Life appears different to us, and we influence things in a different manner, and people start seeing us in a different light and respond to us in a different manner. As we begin creating new types of experience, we transform ourselves by way of those experiences.

In this same manner we can also transform bad or undesirable behaviors and traits, by first recognizing what they are, deciding we want to transform them, and intentionally employing opposite qualities in their place, that change not only our actions and how we interact with others, but also our mental outlook and perspective, what we see and use to create our experiences, how we form interpretations as what we tell ourselves about things and how we feel as a result. Most bad behaviors, ones that are destructive in nature, or built out of beliefs as illusions, come as a result of our conditioning or from traumatic experiences that had a significant emotional impact, which we responded to by building an illusion around as a way of trying to make sense out of it and learning how to cope with it. We establish natural behaviors through a form of training and repetition, and likewise, we can retrain ourselves to new behaviors that we associate to the same stimulus.

All reactions as automatic behaviors come through stimulus as an activating force or intense emotion that’s connected to a memory. A memory is formed as an interpretation of an event based on the emotions we are experiencing at the time of the event. This emotional state and the story we begin telling ourselves about it that made it mean something, becomes the template as a thematic pattern that becomes repeated whenever activated by the same emotion. The emotional stimulus instantly references the memory associated with it, and associates the meaning of that memory to the current situation, where the same emotion is being expressed, and we say to ourselves, “this means the same things as that did”, and we form the same basic perception and react or behave in a similar manner as a form of automatic pattern or knee jerk reaction. Habits, though they’re usually not reactive in nature, are formed in much the same way. We simply repeat some process over and over for a period of time, and it becomes habitual, we do it without even having to think about. The larger part of our everyday actions are performed unconsciously as either a reaction to some form of outer stimulus, or as a habit of some form.

So we can transform habits by first becoming aware of them, gaining a realization around them in terms of what purpose they served, and what they cause in our life as a result, and choose to transform them by replacing them with a new behavior of some form. All qualities as a state of mind and the actions that naturally come from them exist in a natural state of polarity as complementary opposites. We work to transform any quality that we’ve habituated by intentionally employing its opposite instead. Naturally this takes awareness in the mist of activities you previously did without any real awareness, and then a form of discipline or willful action in order to change. In many spiritual traditions this is laid out as a model of the seven virtues and seven vices, which give us the formula for transforming most negative and unproductive or destructive tendencies into positive, creative, and beneficial ones. For example, hatred can be transformed by employing love and understanding in its place. Fear can be transformed by employing courage, anger with forgiveness, greed with charity and generosity, and so on. Mythology also gives us a rich formula for how characters that possess opposite natures are pent against each other in an eternal battle for supremacy. These type of models provide us with the formulas and tools necessary to undergo personal transformation through use of our creative ability to choose who and how we’re going to be, then willfully act out that choice to become self-determined.

All forms of self-creation comes either through conscious or unconscious actions. We either develop in an unaware manner by how other people and situations affect us (unconsciously), or by taking control of our own mind and emotions and make a conscious decision as to who and how we’re going to be in any situation. This only comes by recognizing in ourselves attitudes and behaviors that act to sabotage our life, or that we don’t like about ourselves, and deciding to do what it takes to correct them. It only comes through an intention to work on ourselves by employing contradictory behaviors that not only require us to change how we’re looking at a situation, but require us to change how we interact with the outside world, and what type of effects we create as a result. As we change our habitual tendencies, we change how we feel and how we sense ourselves in relationship to everything and everyone else, and we literally change our mind. As we change how we feel, think, and behave, we change our reality as a correspondence. As our reality changes, the relationship we form with it changes, how we sense ourselves changes, and we literally become a different person by way of our own hand.

Creating a Vision for your Life – Choice, Will, and the Power of the Imagination

While many of us may say or feel as if we have a vision for our life, it’s usually more of a vague story that we keep running through our mind about what we want to do or what we’d rather be doing instead of what we’re doing now, or as a kind of fantasy that we treat more as a leisurely thought that provides us with a kind of coping mechanism or escape from our present situation. It’s hardly ever formulated into a precise idea with vivid details, or formed into a strategy as a plan of action that we then take consistent action towards. And while we can certainly say that a goal written down is far more likely to be accomplished than one that not, we can go a step further and say that a goal that’s turned into a vision as a reality or “well-formed outcome” that’s imagined as if it’s real and actual, then acted on in a consistent manner, is nearly always accomplished.

Many of us get into our life through random situations and relationships that we engage in spontaneously and then weave together in as congruent a manner as possible, and we just kind of end up somewhere in life through a form of default, or we start off with a dream as a kind of vision for our life, and get side tracked or pulled into other things that lead us away from it altogether, sometimes into a situation that we like even better, or sometimes as a means of sacrificing our dream for others and putting it on the back burner for “someday”, or giving it up all together, only to end up unhappy and feeling unfulfilled where resentment and regret sets in and begin eating at us little by little. Still others get pulled into the currents of their life early on and never really had a dream, or looked for who they are in a relationship that they then built their identity around, only to have it shattered at some point along the way when the relationship ran its course, began changing in the fundamental sense, or ended altogether, throwing them into an identity crisis of some form.

We are all born with some kind of dream for our life that’s a part of our essential nature, and exists as the most basic form of spiritual guidance there is that’s meant to lead us into our destiny. Every soul has an energetic composition as what forms our personality, basic character, and identity. Out of our character comes a natural form of story as ideas, situations, and activities that we naturally “see ourselves” engaged in and doing somehow. We have various forms of desire for certain ideas that we feel a natural connection to. Ideas that we have a kind of innate love for, interest in, and curiosity regarding, and we’re always moving towards and into them in a completely natural way. We picture ourselves in those types of situations doing those types of things, and it feels completely natural to us.

When we participate in certain types of ideas and activities, we enter into a state of rapport and sympathy with them, uniting with them in body and mind, and have a heightened sense of being fully present in our own life as a form of natural concentration. We enter into an energetic current as a flow of consciousness where we lose all awareness of ourselves as separate and apart from our experience, and we literally have the experience of becoming one with something that’s greater than ourselves. What we dream of and desire to become one with as a means of experiencing ourselves through the feeling it gives us, we have an internal longing for that always keeps us dreaming of it and actively seeking it out in some manner. This dream as a sense of our life purpose, is relentless in nature and never really goes away, no matter how deep we bury it or how hard we try to ignore it.

To create a vision for our life means to recognize what our dream for our life is, embody that fully as an actual reality that we create in our imagination “as if” we’re actually experiencing it. As we imagine the idea as a situation or scenario, we imbue it with sensory information that brings it to life as an actual experience of it. We create details and crystalize it by asking questions like . . . what am I seeing? Then enhance the visual aspects in full vivid Technicolor. Then, what am I hearing? And create any sounds involved, no matter how small. Then, what am I touching and feeling? What am I smelling or tasting? What am I telling myself about my experience as my internal dialogue? Once we have a full sensory experience that’s sensuous and life-like, then we form a feeling of love for it, we infuse it with very positive emotions that make it desirable and extremely compelling. Then we allow it to take on a life of its own while noticing how we’re feeling and “being” in that situation. What parts of us are being brought out and expressed that make us become a certain “type” of person, and how we relate and associate with the experience. Who and how we become by way of the experience that’s different from the way we normally feel.

Once we’ve created it just as we want to experience it as an initial idea, we then incorporate it into other areas of our life to see how it will affect the other areas of our life, and we make whatever alterations and adjustments we need to in order to incorporate it in as congruent and harmonious way as possible. We keep reforming ourselves and the vision itself until it becomes a fully integrated idea that will work well in all areas of our life. If we can’t integrate it into a specific area or relationship in our life as it currently exists, then we know what decisions and changes we need to make, and what we need to give up or let go of in order to do it. Conflict and inharmonious ideas will only act to sabotage, contradict, or oppose the idea we’re going for and prevent us from achieving it. In order to truly manifest a new reality and way of being, we have to form an alignment with all areas of our life in a sympathetic and harmonious fashion, or they’ll act as emotional blocks and internal conflict, which may prevent our ability to create it or leave us filled with guilt of some kind.

Once we have a fully integrated vision for our life, we play that vision like a movie over and over in our mind as various experiences within that life, until we create it as a “thought-form” that acts as a virtual memory or actual experience of reality, that the subconscious mind can use as if it were an actual memory, and uses it to connect us emotionally and energetically with that same idea in our outer environment. Concentrated thought as an idea brought into form as an imagined reality married to its emotional equivalent, literally becomes infused with our life-force energy which generates an electromagnetic field and takes on a life of its own as a separate entity, and both projects and stimulates that same frequency as an idea all around us, and magnetizes or attracts and draws to us, and us to it, that same idea as a set of circumstances or situation necessary for acting out that idea as an experience of that type of reality.

We give life to ideas through concentrated thought imagined as a sensory reality that invokes its complementary emotion as the electromagnetic force of the material plane. All matter as subtle energy is formed and arranged into structured patterns by the mind through the creative use of the imagination. A desire for something acts as a unifying, self-seeking force. We only desire what we love, and we can only love what we understand, and we only come to know and therefore understand by uniting (sympathetic induction) and becoming one with it (forming coherence). What we love we desire to become one with, and in union with it we gain knowledge of it by being it. Love and desire are the attractive, unifying force as the most natural use of the will, both higher will and lower will. We always know what we’re meant to do by what we have a natural connection and desire for.

A fully imagined idea as a feeling, sensory, and emotional reality, creates the pattern of an idea as a vibratory frequency that possesses electromagnetic properties. Thought shapes light as essence into archetypal forms that become prototypes for producing an equivalent or corresponding reality. An idea or archetype that’s dwelled upon, concentrated on, and infused with feelings and emotion, is the most basic form of prayer as a request, or as providing a template for the experience desired that serves to organize the natural forces of the material world, drawing us into the same type of reality in our immediate environment (through resonance).

Whatever we focus on and give our attention to, we move towards and interact with. Attention is an active force that stimulates whatever it is we’re thinking about. As we form a vision as a desired experience that will make us feel a certain way, we can also realize what’s involved in creating that reality, and we can form a kind of process or strategy as a step-by-step process for producing it by connecting to it and interacting with it. All creation works by way of laws as processes that grow, generate, and produce living forms as thematic (archetypal) realities. So all forms as a reality has a growth process involved for creating it, as well as a state-of-mind as the “quality of being” necessary to exist within it in a harmonious and natural fashion as a part of it, and ultimately the creator of it.

As our vision becomes a reality for us and we can see the components involved that make up its structure, we can form the strategy as a progressive process necessary to grow, formulate, and produce it. Once this process becomes evident, we can form a series of smaller goals that need to be accomplished in order to lay the foundation necessary for it to spontaneously occur as a creation, and more importantly, maintain it as a new lifestyle and way of being. Out of these goals we organize priorities and which ones need to come first in order to produce the other ones as a form of growth process or systematic emergence and unfolding. Ideas grow, mature, and blossom. Once our process is laid out in a hierarchical format, we commit and discipline ourselves to consistently take action to achieve each goal, while cultivating an attitude of perseverance and mental fortitude that presses through fears and challenges, overcoming all that acts to prevent it, until each step is accomplished providing the basis for the next step.

As we begin executing our strategy, we’ll begin getting feedback as to the effectiveness of our methods, allowing us to make whatever adjustments we need to along the way. The initial plan as a strategy simply provides us with an organized process for beginning, and is not meant as a rigid set of rules that we adhere to even when they’re clearly not working. The implementation of any plan is always a “work in progress” that we allow to take on a life of its own as we begin manifesting it, and we modify and tweak it based on feedback, new information, or better ideas for doing the same thing.

A goal is always about producing a desired outcome, not defining the process necessary to create it. We have to remain flexible and able to go with situations as they arise, because a vision is a form of thematic idea that may not come about in the exact way we imagined it, but rather by using whatever is available and of the same idea in our immediate environment, and so the elements used may appear different, though they’ll be of the same idea and create the same type of feeling as the experience of our imagined one. The imagined idea acts as a prototype or thematic template for organizing and ordering ideas of the same nature. So they may not show up the way we think they will, but we can recognize them by how they make us feel and what they seem to be about as a type of reality.

So in order to create a vision for your life as a means of willfully creating and becoming self-determined, start formulating an idea about “who you really are”, what feeling you want to acquire, and what kind of life you would be living as a result, into a detailed, sensory reality that you feel a deep sense of love and soul connection to. Make it into an actual experience internally as a form of virtual memory that will serve as a program for your subconscious mind to connect with externally while also bringing to your attention anything that pertains to it as a form of coincidence or synchronicity. Integrate this idea into all areas of your life in a congruent and harmonious fashion, forming an alignment. Notice how it feels to be in this desired situation, and concentrate heavily on that feeling so you can recognize it in any situation.

As you live out this vision internally, notice the elements involved and what type of things are a part of it and build a creative process as a strategy for producing it in the practical sense of action steps or goals. Then commit to taking consistent action on each of these goals until they are accomplished and become real. Remember your vision is more of a “theme for your life”, and remain flexible through the whole process as it may not come about in quite the way you had imagined, though it will hold true to the theme of your vision and give you the same feeling as the one you fabricated in your imagination. Recognize any fears or inhibitions that may arise around what it takes to fulfill your goals, and be willing to push through them without letting them stop you. Avoid the tendency to make excuses for things that make you uncomfortable. Tweak your plan based on feedback and discovering new information that you hadn’t anticipated in the beginning. Adapt and adjust as you go along, and always keep moving towards it with a sense of love and determination, until it becomes an actual reality as a part of your everyday life.

The Secret Language of Metaphor, Analogy, and Allegory

The-NeverEnding-Dreamer-Cameron-Gray

The greatest secrets throughout human history have been concealed in a universal or metaphorical language, historically written as ancient hieroglyphs or symbolic images that convey whole ideas through the details inherent in a single composite image. What we call written language originated as symbolic images that required interpretation in order to be understood. It taught ideas while simultaneously developing intuitive ability necessary to understand them as a living concept. A person’s maturity and knowledge of the spiritual sciences, which communicated the laws involved in an idea, determined how an image was interpreted by the individual, which resulted in a unique variation of the same idea, that was ideally suited to the individual interpreting it, every time it was interpreted. This allowed for an infinite variety of the same universal concept, which is necessary for practical application of that idea in the individual’s life in order to create by way of it.

Sacred teachings were passed down through storytelling as an allegory, which, when interpreted revealed hidden meaning of a moral or political nature. Everything was communicated in an indirect, symbolic mode of expression. Their understanding of the teachings were based on their intuitive ability to discern the laws operating in a metaphorical story as the creative energies that expressed in very specific ways based on the laws governing them. Principle and law determine composition as a structured organization that functions or behaves in predictable ways, based on the patterning involved. In this way, by simultaneously developing intuitive ability to interpret metaphorical ideas, the person also learned how to readily identify the underlying idea operating within any situation, revealing the hidden nature of the person, situation, or event. The nature of an idea in living form as a composite pattern or vibratory matrix it was comprised of, not only explained its behavior as the principles operating within and through it, but also allowed us to predict their behaviors in any situation by how they naturally entered into relationship with all other factors involved to co-create a new pattern based on what properties they share in common, and the interaction it naturally forms by how they influence each other. Metaphor represents a principle or law as a living idea, and helps us learn to recognize what these ideas look and feel like when being acted out through a real life situation as a form of story that expresses a psychological pattern.

final.lotusonious02_h264

Other metaphorical or symbolic images were used to communicate ideas in terms of mathematical properties that form a chain-of-association as analogies and correspondences that translate purely abstract ideas into physical equivalents, connected by the principle and properties they share in common as being of the same nature or vibratory frequency. Vibration, as pure energy or consciousness, contains natural geometric structures as patterns of light (created through movement), that form mathematical properties that have natural behaviors or functions in them. Law is energy as vibration that organizes matter into form with distinct functions and in higher intelligence, personality traits.

Much of the ancient wisdom was documented only in symbolic language, which required interpretation in order to be realized and understood, and as a result, remained secret or indiscernible to the immature, ignorant, or any person who hadn’t reached the necessary degree of spiritual maturity by developing their individuality under the guidance of a spiritual master or teacher. The other significance of using symbolic language which requires each person to interpret it in a unique fashion, outside of the intuitive faculty developed by way of it, is that each individual forming a personal interpretation does so out of their quality and level of consciousness, through their conceptual model as applied to their current life situation, culture, and formative conditioning, that not only forms a unique interpretation, but one that’s ideally suited for them, because it’s formed “by them”. Each individual will interpret the same idea conveyed in symbolic terms in a slightly different way, and all will be true because they’re based on law, which when adapted to unique situations and perceived by different individuals, forms an endless amount of variations, while still holding true as an expression of the law they portray. This works to develop each person in their individuality, which is the true basis of all spirituality. Spirit exists in a primal state of Infinite Variety.

When symbolic or metaphorical ideas are interpreted for us by others, and taught as truth through one individuals interpretation, derived out of their psychological model and make-up, it only casts a shadow of the knowledge itself as one possibility out of an infinite number, and often turns what originates as law or organic processes into rules which are obeyed without a direct comprehension of the laws they are attempting to teach. This method of teaching, as laws that are interpreted for us, forms dogma as static and lifeless concepts that turn law into commandments, taken purely on faith, without any actual realization, and serves only to breed and encourage ignorance in the most basic sense.

spacious

A true initiate must make the teachings progressively understandable to the student in its symbolic point of view, and instruct them in the language of symbolism, the language of metaphor, as the original and only true universal language. In this way, no language barriers exist, because everything conveyed in visual terms and as stories that express the laws it represents in everyday life in a way that anyone, regardless of nationality, culture, or era can relate to and understand as operations taking place all around them in their everyday life on an ongoing basis.

Holy Sciences have been passed down from generation to generation through the language or symbolic metaphors, allegorical stories, and ceremonies as traditions for eons. In this way it remains alive as a dynamic evolving form that remains eternally true. In this way knowledge is passed from master to student through a form of inspiration that is understood through an experience that brings self-realization. In this way also, no true mysteries of wisdom were apprehended by those poorly prepared, untutored, or spiritually immature. It was (is) only apprehended through experience that brings realization as the channel through which knowledge comes as an enactment of the principles contained within and governing it, into everyday life as the story that conveys it through a direct experience of it.

Yet, in modern times, with the development of a stagnate language that has a standard interpretation and because people have become so removed from spiritual knowledge that underlies and governs all of life as the natural laws that form and animate it, even a thorough description that attempts to teach the knowledge outside of its original expression as symbolic ideas, still remains incomprehensible to the average person because they’ve not been taught to think in more dynamic ways, and have not developed their intuitive faculties necessary for comprehending the invisible forces that operate silently through what is in reality, the symbolic forms it produces by the tension and organizing nature of vibration itself, that’s always producing and maintaining organic processes. Both in the physical world of nature, and in the invisible realm of the mind, which serves to form and animate the physical world. Once we realize that it’s not the spiritual world that’s symbolic, and comes by way of an analogy of sorts, and fully realize instead that it’s the physical world that is formed as symbolical images of the spiritual realm, and that we can understand the spiritual through its affects or symbolic shapes that make up the physical world as the natural expression or correspondence to the spiritual.

The spiritual world is pure vibration as qualities and degrees of consciousness that naturally form physical shapes out of matter as concentrated formula’s or patterns, as the structuring mechanism inherent in vibration, that builds up form out of information (DNA) that corresponds to the quality of consciousness as function and behaviors that animate it through natural processes of growth and continuous development as an evolutionary process that undergoes constant transformation as an energetic exchange (of consciousness) with its environment, as a “range of expression” or potential being activated while others go dormant, causing fluctuations as stages of growth that develop us in new ways by how we express and therefore integrate consciousness, reforming ourselves by way of it.

Frequencies and Thought Transmission – Waves as Infinite Potential of Associated Ideas

We tend to think of thought transmission or mental projection of an idea as “sending” a specific idea or thought-form itself to someone else (from one location to another), believing that it will be “picked up” (received) as the same form of thought, image, or idea that we sent it as, and because of this, we don’t understand how it actually works. There’s always a translation taking place between a universal idea as an archetype (prototype) and the personal interpretation of the universal as something specific (one possibility). What has been made into a specific idea as a personal expression through the individual mind being is then returned to its “universal state” as a means of being “transmitted” through the invisible field of information that exists all around us and acts as a medium that connects everything as a cohesive whole. We don’t send the thought itself, but rather “tune into” that same type of thought, while also mentally connecting to the person or place we’re transmitting it to.

The wave as a frequency of information, can be thought of as a thematic idea, that has an infinite range of possible expression as an adaptation to not only the individual mind conceiving of it, but also how it exists in relation to their life conditions, specific circumstances, point in their evolution, mood at the time, and so on, all of which translate the wave pattern into a specific version or application of that idea as a personal expression of it or as one possibility.  This is what quantum physics calls “collapsing the wave into a particle” as one potential, or as converting a vast and unformed idea into a unique variation through a practical application which morphs and modifies it.

pineal energetic transmission

Likewise, when transmitting information as thoughts, we have to return our individual interpretation to its universal state (feeling) as a wave of pure potential that’s based on the intention inherent in the thought, or the thematic idea of the thought as an association or analogy. Once converted out of a personalized expression and back into a thematic, universal form (archetype), it can naturally be transmitted through the unified field and readily picked up on by another who’s tuned into the same wave as a frequency while in a passive and receptive state, who receives the information in its whole form as a wave of potential for a thematic idea, and upon receiving can adapt, apply, and translate it to form a personalized interpretation of what comes in a purely energetic state, and is turned into an idea or thought of an associated or similar nature, though it’s a unique variation of the same general idea.

The error often comes when we fail to realize that our “personal thoughts” are only capable of being formed by us through how we adopt an idea to our mental model or paradigm as a frequency itself, that “selects” (resonates with) the possibility most appropriate as filtered through our belief and value system, and as applied to our exact circumstances, which is what turns it into something specific. All universal information as intelligence, exists in its wave-form as an unformed and purely potential state. Within the frequency of a wave exists a thematic idea, also called an archetype. An archetype is not only an image, concept, or idea in its static, abstract form, but also as a set of attributes, qualities, and temperament, or personality traits most ideally suited for not only expressing the idea by applying it to a unique set of variables, but also as the ability to act it out, by becoming it in personality and identity.

absorbing energy

Ideas have to “come through us”, in relationship with us, as our personalized expression of that idea in a unique manner. So they come with specific personality traits as a state of mind most conducive to actualizing them as a living reality. The wave as a theme of endless potential allows for a unique expression of a common idea every time it’s received and conceptualized as a modification that reformulates what’s being emphasized, exaggerated, pronounced, embellished, accentuated, and what is subdued, played down, barely acknowledged, or ignored all together. Each mind adapts and reforms the idea to their personal style for creating based on the intention that’s being employed.

So we don’t transmit or pick up on other people’s thoughts as their specific images and ideas as a personalized expression, but rather as the same frequency as a wave-form that forms feelings and mental impressions of an associated and corresponding manner. When we transmit thoughts intentionally, we have to concentrate not on the details or personal emphasis, but on the idea as a general mood or feeling associated with it and the intention that spawns it as an imagined idea or scenario. Once we return it to its universal state of pure potential as a frequency that allows for an infinite possibilities for formation by the receiver, it’s transmitted without resistance. As its picked up or conceived by someone of the same wave-length, it’s turned into an associated idea as a variation, that still holds true to the general idea and is of the same intention, simply born out of a unique application as an adaptation. In the spiritual sense of pure energy as consciousness, all ideas exist as archetypal prototypes that form a unique and individualized expression every time they’re utilized by the individual mind, which is what allows us to create within our life in a very precise, determined, and appropriate manner.

Vesica Pisces – The Law of Relationship, Birth, and Reformation

The Vesica Pisces is what’s called the “womb of life”, and is represented in sacred geometry as the Dyad, and in other symbolic systems as the Yin and Yang, or masculine and feminine aspects of a greater whole. The Dyad, symbolized as a Monad or mind-sphere that separates (or regenerates) from itself, and projects outward to form the illusion or appearance of itself as another, as someone or something outside of and a part from itself that it then enters into relationship with as a means of experiencing and thereby knowing itself. The Monad, as a single sphere or energy field vibrating at a specific frequency, enters into relationship with everything outside of itself that’s of the same frequency, and through the interaction of “like qualities”, develops itself through those shared qualities by producing experiences of itself “as those qualities”, applied, and reformulated to form a new variation.

The mind (represented as the Monad – circle with a dot in the center) is a field of subtle energy that vibrates at a specific frequency. A frequency is a cluster of interwoven smaller frequencies that are all correlated, coherent and complementary in nature, and act through an accumulative affect to form a quality and level of consciousness. All subtle energy as vibration is consciousness as qualities that propagate as ideas, thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions, that are all of the same corresponding nature, and act to bring the invisible (idea) into a visible, sensory experience as its expression. The individual mind, which vibrates at a specific frequency, has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it, that acts to stimulate matter in such a way that it brings out and emphasizes some qualities and aspects, while causing other to go dormant or recede and fade into the background, unnoticed. It does this automatically by perceiving the outer world and forming a unique interpretation of it based on what matches  and is therefore “turned on”, and what doesn’t and is thereby “turned off”, in much the same way DNA formulates a new pattern as a selection of physical characteristics out of two strands of complementary features and information, forming an offspring that’s comprised of complementary aspects of both parents to form a unique individual. Our mind operates along this same principle in how the internal nature stimulates and reformulates the outer reality, forming it into a new pattern as a variation based on complementary aspects.

The Dyad, which represents the one dividing to become two, and creating the appearance of another as an outer reality that’s comprised of the same frequency or consciousness as the inner self (represented by the inner dot), which exists on the outer periphery of both, forms an interference pattern as the overlapping area, which is then reformulated into a new combination, by canceling out some shared features, while enhancing and intensifying others, forms the Vesica Pisces as the womb or portal out of which emerges an actual material reality as the complementary opposite of the internal reality that’s combining with it and reforming it. The outer reality takes on it’s appearance based on the mind perceiving it. How it appears is organized through a natural process of selection and rejection, at the energetic, vibratory level. This action of the inner on the outer is naturally produced by our “perceptual lens” which forms an interpretation as an individual form of expression that reorders the elements of the outer world to take on the same patterns and living forms as the inner world. The inner world of the individual mind, exists in relationship with the greater mind of the external world, and perceives in it only what matches and can be produced by the paradigm (patterning as a holographic model) that’s interacting with it.

vesica

The outer material world exists as the greater mind that has all vibratory frequencies inherent in it as pure potential. What is activated, brought out, and formed into one potential as a possibility is based on the interaction as resonance with the individual mind existing in relationship with it. This new reality as “how things appear” to the individual doesn’t literally change the outer material world as seen by others, but only as seen by the individual perceiving it. Because of this, in order to change how the outer world appears to us, and the nature of how we experience it, we have to change the mind as out inner world that’s acting on it to create it. As we change ourselves, we simultaneously change how we perceive, and what appearance things take on as a correspondence. We see in the outside world only what corresponds and is of the same nature as the inside world. By working directly with our mind as our internal nature, we change how we experience the outer world. All transformation comes from the inside out by alternating our vibratory frequency as our character and internal nature.

Our mind, which is synonymous with our soul, is formed based on qualities that we integrate through practice and the experience it brings. Qualities as states of consciousness, or states of mind, that are embodied and intentionally employed, form our perceptual lens that we look through and determines what we see and act naturally to “bring out” in everything around us, changing how it appears to us, and creating an experience of ourselves as “being” that way. Through the experience of being a certain way, we acquire that experience as memory that’s integrated through the actual experience of it, and serves to shape our character by way of it. Our character as our inner nature and way of being, is our vibratory signature, and expresses by forming the outer world to be the stage for the story our character naturally tells. Our character as our way of being, is what produces our “story” as a consistent and ongoing form of experience where regardless of what the actual outer circumstances and events, we restructure them to create a consistent experience of the world.

Our mind vibrates at a specific frequency as a quality of consciousness that perceives the outer world through an interpretation that makes it mean something, and then, based on the meaning we give it, we tell ourselves a story about it, and through our own story, first birthed through our vibratory paradigm, we create our experience of it, that then shapes us through our own self-created experience. This self-creation as self-expression, keeps us locked into the same vibratory frequency, often throughout our lifetime (or many lifetimes), because we don’t realize the power of our own mind in producing our experience of reality, and because it comes as an experience of the outer world, we imagine it’s happening “to us” instead of “by us”. We think that in order for us to change, we feel a victim to our circumstances, and often helpless to change them, because we don’t realize it’s an effect, and not a cause. What happens in life as a greater reality is beyond our control and not being produced by us, and so, when we work in our own life to try and change others or our outer circumstances, we continue having the same type of experience, and we’re left realizing we have no control over what goes on outside of ourselves, but we have absolute control over what goes on inside of us, we have only to become aware of it, and practice managing our own state.

Torus shape

The outer reality as we perceive it, acts as a mirror for the inner reality and serves to show us, through direct experience, hidden (unknown) aspects of our own nature. Everything we naturally “see in others”, and our environment, also exists in us, that’s why we’re seeing it and able to produce an experience of it. Whatever we see (perceive) we act to stimulate (resonate), awaken and make active, and “bring out” in everything else, then shape it into a dynamic as a story-line being enacted by how we interact with it to co-create it. We produce the natural behaviors of our perceptions, and how we’re being with people, how we treat them, the nature and attitude of the interaction (relationship) itself, creates our experience of them, and develops them through those qualities to “be that way” in relationship with us. Perception is resonance that can only enter into and effect what’s of the same vibration. As it enters into (is absorbed) that same quality of consciousness in others, effecting them by making it active and bringing it out in them, shows us, in no uncertain terms, what quality as a way of being we’re actively expressing through. Our active properties stimulate those same properties in them, making them active in response to us. This mirrors back to us our own characteristics as a behavioral dynamic that’s formed by a thematic story-line. Because this is all happening at the subconscious level, meaning we have no direct awareness of what we’re actually doing, or the power of our own mind to produce subjective experiences of what seems like an outer reality, we often don’t realize what it’s showing us about ourselves, we don’t realize our power to transform through influence that reformulates character traits.

Once we realize that the outer world is taking on the appearance of the inner world, and understand it as showing us what our soul’s vibratory signature is, what story we’re always in the process of telling by how we rearrange the elements available to form our pattern, we can begin working with our own unconscious tendencies to reformulate them by intentionally deciding to, then employing the complementary and opposite qualities that will recognize our own paradigm and develop our character to different means. Once we’re able to see ourselves in the full light of day, and we realize we’re always the one creating our experiences of life, we can begin effectively transforming our own mind by reprogramming ourselves to new qualities and ways of being. When we can see ourselves clearly, gain realization around and fully own our own tendencies, we can change by simply deciding to and working with counteracting and counterbalancing qualities.

interference pattern

All vibration as a pattern, exists in polarity as complementary opposites that form a progressive scale that moves from one extreme to another, as positive and negative aspects of the same overall idea. When we are expressing negative traits that are destructive and detrimental to our well-being and happiness, we can act to transform them by employing their opposing counterpart that’s complementary in nature. Hatred and prejudice can be counterbalanced and transformed by intentionally employing reverence and compassion in its place. Whereas hatred sees only differences and judges based on those differences, love sees only what’s similar and seeks always to understand. By intentionally entering into a new state as a quality of consciousness that forms a different relationship with others and the outer world, we form a new relationship with ourselves, and begin cultivating new aspects of ourselves in place of the old and through the experience they bring, we begin reshaping ourselves by way of employing a new vibration.

All reality is born out of a relationship between the individual and the universal, the inner and the outer, the masculine and the feminine, producing an offspring as a new combination of shared qualities. Consciousness as vibration, only resonates with the same vibration in everything else, and forms a consistent experience of reality as consistent variations of that pattern or theme. To change our experience of life, others, and the outer world, we have to first change the vibration of our own mind and inner nature. As we think and imagine we create our own experiences of the outer world as a correspondence to our thoughts. The elements of the outer world itself doesn’t change, just what we “see in it” changes. Other people don’t change, we change how we enter into relationship with them, and as a result, our perception of them changes.

If, for example, we employ a general theme of thinking other people are stupid, then we only see in them what can be made into “stupid”, or we interpret any number of behaviors to mean they’re stupid. This naturally comes from the fact that we were made to feel stupid somehow as part of our conditioning, which we build defensive mechanisms around, and one of the ways we prove to ourselves and others that we’re not stupid is by making other people more stupid than we are, or we interpret the same behaviors in them as being stupid that we employed when we were told that we were stupid. Anytime we deny and refuse to own something about ourselves, we project it onto others, and see it in them instead. Because we always awaken in others the same tendencies we ourselves possess, if we simply observe our own tendencies as judgements of various sorts in an objective and detached manner, we can see clearly hidden aspects of ourselves that we’re in denial of, because all perception is projection. All reality (tetrad) as we can know it is produced by the projection (dyad) of our own mind (monad). Whatever reality we create inwardly becomes the thematic template for how we reorganize the outer world as a correspondence.

The Vibratory Structure of the Mind – “Our Paradigm and Mental Model of the World”

Our Paradigm forms our Perceptual Lens through which we Experience Reality

 

Our mind is a field of subtle energy as consciousness that’s vibrating at a certain frequency. While we may think of vibration as sound or movement around a pole, or between two poles, and while all energy follows this basic principle, vibration also has what we call a “self-organizing principle” or structuring mechanism inherent in it that form photons (matter) into distinct patterns. All subtle energy is a primal form of consciousness as the information and active force necessary to “grow” the information into a life-form of some kind. The frequency the energy vibrates at reflects the quality of consciousness inherent in it, and the type of patterns it forms, and the activity of those patterns as behaviors or functions of some sort. All living forms contain varying degrees of consciousness, which is reflected in its nature, the qualities it possesses, how it grows, functions, or operates, and in the case of higher forms of consciousness, what personality it’s imbued with.

sphere of consciousness

The mind, or subtle energy field of a living being, which accompanies its physical form as the creator of that form, vibrates at a certain frequency, which determines how it’s structured and how it performs based on its structure. The mind is a living field that is centered in the heart of every living being and pulsates outward forming a sphere that surrounds and extends quite some distance from the body, and flows in a toroidal pattern as a spiraling form of respiration. It extends out, interacts with the other mind-fields and vibratory information in the environment, attracting and integrating information of a similar vibration and consciousness, while repulsing anything of a different frequency, then enfolds back into itself, digesting and assimilating the energy, modifying and upgrading its vibration as its fundamental structure, based on how it incorporates new information into the existing paradigm. Our mind is the electromagnetic field that both simultaneously projects and magnetizes, unfolds and enfolds. It’s constantly transforming based on digesting and metabolizing similar energy around it as a way of equalizing and becoming “like” the environment it exists within, functions naturally as a part of, and survives within.

The basic structure of the mind forms a pattern or paradigm as a dynamic model that’s the formation of its vibratory frequency. Our mental paradigm is a model that we look through and use to perceive the world around us. Our model is like a template or archetypal blueprint that still maintains the self-organizing mechanism inherent in all vibration, which acts to reshape our outer world to match our inner (mental) world. We translate the outer world, which has an infinite amount of information inherent in it, and reform it into the same archetypal pattern as our minds vibration, reforming it as a personal creation. We’re always taking the outer as the universal mass consciousness and reshaping it into a personalized version just through the act of perceiving and forming an interpretation of it.

human torus

Our model of the world is thematic in nature, and not only develops our basic character and how we think and feel, but also forms the type of reality our model produces as an experience, and what type of story we’re always in the process of telling through our natural way of perceiving the world and how we interpret neutral events to give them personal meaning as a way of experiencing them. This theme as the basic expression of our vibratory frequency forms consistent and congruent experiences of the outer reality throughout our life, making it cohesive and coherent.

A paradigm is a pattern structured out of accumulated and synthesized memory that acts as a template and filtering mechanism. When we look out into the world around us, we only see and recognize (cognate) what’s of the same nature as we are (vibratory frequency), or in other words, what we have previous information about that we’ve cohesively incorporated into our story about things. We can only incorporate and make use of information that can be understood “through” our model. Any new information that’s not a part of our model (similar to it), we can’t comprehend, and don’t even see it in the real sense of the word. In order to see something differently, we have to be able to incorporate the right type of information in gradual steps, which build on a process, and once a threshold is met, a paradigm shift takes place.

Once a shift takes place, which means the pattern as the model of our mind literally changes vibration, allowing us to not only see a new reality, but actually comprehend what we’re seeing in functional terms. Once we can see and reorganize an idea, we can gain a working understanding of it by simply observing and studying it. But until enough information is received and digested that’s necessary to see a new and different idea in the same old idea or reality, and a realization takes place, and our model is literally transformed to a new vibration as a new perceptual filtering system, we can’t comprehend what our model doesn’t support.

Our mental paradigm is structured throughout our life by our primary and natural disposition, temperament, attitude, preferences, beliefs, values, and memories, and how we process information using our model to make sense of things through the story we tell ourselves about them. Our model allows us to describe, explain, and utilize ideas in the practical sense. Sometimes, even when we can see things we can’t make sense of them, because they can’t be explained using our model in a practical way that allows for a conceptualization which is necessary in order to understand something. The whole purpose of education and devoted study of some sort, is to provide yourself with a variety of new forms of information and knowledge that you can begin consistently integrating and building into your model to grow and upgrade it in a consistent fashion that will allow for greater and greater comprehension of an expanded array of ideas and disciplines.

SG human torus

The best way to grow your mind and increase your vibratory frequency is through devoted study of some form where knowledge is imagined in conceptual terms and brought into practice producing an actual experience of it. Only knowledge that’s acquired through practice is integrated into the mind as memory. Whatever we experience is automatically integrated into our mind just through the experience itself and modifies our model in a way that completely makes sense to us. The memory itself is a pattern as a vibration that upgrades all other patterns to be comparable and harmonious through resonance and coherence. Because of this feature, we are the only ones who can intentionally grow our own minds by intentionally undergoing certain types of practices that bring us true knowledge in a first-hand method of being the vehicle through which it becomes expressed in the world. In order to “know” we have to become one with an idea, and allow it to express through us through willful action that employs it to create the reality it implies giving us a sense of ourselves within that reality as an experience of it.

As we bring ideas into practice of some form creating a reality, producing the experience as the creator of that reality, we simultaneously shape ourselves by way of that experience integrating it naturally into our mental paradigm as an expanded possibility. As we incorporate new possibilities as practices of some sort, we grow and develop our mind through the incorporation of that vibration, altering and modifying our overall vibration as a result. The only way there is to change our vibratory frequency is through learning new things by embodying them and growing through the experience it brings. When we rely on life events to grow us, we grow slowly, or sometimes not at all, because we are always perceiving, interpreting, and experiencing more of the same vibratory frequency. We tend to process all incoming information through our mental paradigm, transforming it to match, instead of allowing new experiences to transform our mental paradigm through new applications and behaviors. When, however, we continue to provide ourselves with new information that we concentrate on, imagine and conceptualize, producing a possible reality as a template or pathway, then bring into practice in our lives in some manner by actually employing it to produce the reality it claims to produce, absorbing and acquiring it through the direct experience of it as a form of self-expression, we act on ourselves to transform ourselves by intentionally altering our vibration.

Love, Desire, and Union – The Nature of the Ego and how we Shape Ourselves

vesica-pisces       Whatever idea we accept, believe, and use to perceive ourselves through, we become like, and we shape ourselves into the image of it. We’re always creating our self-image by what we associate with and mold ourselves to be like. There has been a great misinterpretation of the term “ego”, which is the identity or the “I” and “I am” which is our spiritual self that gives us our individuality. Our identity in terms of “who” and “how” we are being, comes through association and what we align ourselves with and become by way of. Whatever we become a part of, merge into and actively participate in, we become “like”. As we become one with another through the relationship we form with them, the nature of the interaction and how we sense ourselves through the interaction, we sense ourselves through, and it serves to shape us.

Whatever we blend with, merge into, and form a relationship with where we are actively participating in a dynamic of some sort that’s born out of a quality of consciousness and level of maturity, stimulates and brings out in us certain aspects of our character that are complementary in nature, and we “become” a variation of ourselves as a new mixture or formula of traits, based on what’s emphasized and what’s not, and through this new version of ourselves, we develop ourselves in that way. The longer and more consistently we maintain and exist within the relationship or situation, the more conditioned or habituated we become to “being that way”. To playing that role, to looking at life through a particular attitude and perspective that as it changes our perception of life, it simultaneously changes our perception of ourselves. As our perception changes and we have a particular type of experience by actively participating in a certain way of being, we “become” by way of the experience it creates.

Our identity is either something we take control of and determine, or it’s something we go through automatically or in an unconscious manner by simply floating along in life, doing what we need to do, and haphazardly “ending up” in the situations that lend themselves to fulfilling needs and desires of some sort without any actual realization of what we’re doing. In this way we form our entire identity out of other people and situations, our material possessions and station in life, and the roles we play. Many people don’t really have a strong our clear sense of who they are or feel a distinct purpose for their life when they’re all alone, and look for a relationship with another person or situation to wrap themselves around and build their life around. They need another person to tell them who they are by acting as a mirror for them, or through the nature of the interaction that takes place, how they’re treated, how they feel about themselves because of the other, and what type of dynamic as a thematic or dramatic story of some kind that they cooperate in playing out as a joint experience.

Telepathic-Communication-Header

Like always begets more of what’s like itself, and so we are attracted to those who are of a compatible and complementary nature to us, and who have been conditioned and imprinted with the same “issues or tendencies” as we have, and who cooperate fully in acting out the same dynamics in a somewhat unique and novel way. This cooperative effort sets the stage for giving us the type of experience that we know and are familiar with, and know “how to be” in relationship with. Those who are of a different nature than we are, we don’t naturally enter into relationship with, and if we do, it doesn’t last very long.

Anytime we’re forming our identity out of the material realm in some form, we act on ourselves to bond ourselves energetically to the material realm, which is mortal in nature, and temporary at best. When we rely on others, our situations and circumstances to tell us who we are, we engage in a real fundamental form of false identity. We equate ourselves to our animal (lower) nature, and by bonding with our material identity, we keep ourselves reincarnating into a material body and we fail to ascend. We fail to accurately recognize our true identity as spiritual beings, and we become instead, our lower self.

Whatever we love, we also desire, and what we desire we seek union with. Desire is another phenomena that has been greatly misinterpreted to mean something bad or wrong. Yet desire, like ego, and every other concept, exists in polarity as opposites that are complementary in nature. All ideas that we engage in on the material plane also works on the higher planes as a direct correspondence. The way in which we monitor and develop ourselves is by whatever we love, have a desire for, and willingly form union with. As we unite, we calibrate our vibratory frequency to the same quality and level of consciousness. The true question becomes what is it that we love and are always acting to seek out? If we love our material existence, believe that we’re our body, and get our sense of self from material things that are outside of us that can be lost, taken away, or die, then we tune ourselves to the vibration of being mortal. We live in a constant state of insecurity and fear. Love always brings fear. Love and fear are complementary opposites in a world of temporary ideas that all end with the death of the body. Whatever we acquire physically, we shed and step out of at the death of the body, and so it’s not eternal in nature. We lose our sense of self, and immediately look to incarnate again into a new material body as a means of self-expression and being able to know who we are.

atlantis

Likewise, when we form a love for the spiritual world and the things of the spiritual world, we desire and long for it, we unite with it, and we “become” by way of the union. Our spiritual identity as our soul, apart from our body, is not external to us or apart from us, is not found outside of us, but is completely of an internal nature. Which means, it can’t be taken away, we can’t lose it, and when the material body dies, it remains fully intact and able to ascend to a higher plane of spirit by resonating with that plane because it’s no longer bonded to the material world. Our spiritual nature does not depend on material ideas, and comes primarily by developing our character as qualities that we embody, that act to change our perceptual lens and how we’re being in the world. As we develop ourselves by habituating qualities as ways of being, it changes how we perceive and experience things, and alters, modifies, or grows our level of consciousness accordingly. This type of growth is actual and real, and once it becomes a part of us, it’s within our full control and cannot be taken away or threatened. It becomes a permanent part of who we are.

Because loss and compromise are no longer a possibility, all fear dissipates, and we love, desire, blend and bond with our true nature, and in doing so dissolve our attachments and connections to the material world. We exist in a totally self-contained manner, secure and content. We experience ourselves as “being in this world but not of it”. We identify instead with our spiritual nature, and desire union with God as our Higher Self, instead of with another human being or life situation. We lose our desire for all things material and become instead a channel for good to work in the world. We no longer feel a need for someone or something to tell us who we are, we no longer look to fill a need or want of some sort, we no longer need to try and control others and situations, or always acting out of a selfish agenda of some sort, and so we work instead as an administrator that works exclusively for the good of everyone involved. We become universal in nature, instead of identifying with our body. We become non-local instead of local. We have no needs of the material world outside of caring for our body and well-being. We place ourselves at the service to humanity instead of expecting humanity to serve us.

State of Mind – The Science and Art of Personal Transformation

All spiritual development comes by way of embodying and expressing certain “qualities” that alter our consciousness through employing them, and develop our character accordingly. Qualities are states of mind that form our perceptual lens and alter our vibration as a level of consciousness. Our “character”, which is the basis of our identity, is our soul’s signature as our style for creating using our mind to control and direct the material elements as “self-expression” that at once projects, activates, and brings out the same character in everyone and everything around us, using it to create an experience that’s “of” that quality, and thereby drawing more of it unto us, strengthening and amplifying that same quality in us. This is expressed in the law that’s stated “what we put out, we draw back unto ourselves ten-fold” (multiplied and amplified).

Of all the practices you can engage in to intentionally develop yourself in very specific ways, this is the primary one, that if you master it, eliminates all the other ones automatically. All the other healing practices, such as eliminating fear, recognizing undesirable tendencies, correcting bad traits or vices, healing trauma’s and prejudice, and so on, all arise out of and are produced by our state of mind as our general mood. By learning how to intentionally initiate and maintain our state, we literally control the type of reality that systematically arises out of it as its natural expression. All realities are of a specific state as a vibratory frequency. All vibration as a rate or speed of motion, form natural patterns as thematic realities, that simultaneously form the character traits of those realities through the experience it brings.

Our character and our life story as the dramas and behavioral dynamics we naturally attract and participate in, are all of the same vibration. We act as a channel for the vibration we’re “tuned to”, which first shapes us as the receptor, we then perceive “through” this vibration, seeing and activating all around us that same vibration, and creating the outer reality that matches or is of the same nature and theme as our inner state or identity. So we first create the inner reality of our state of mind, then reform how things appear outwardly by using this inner reality to organize and interpret it, then the outer projection acts “on us” to create us by way of our own creation and the experience it brings. The inner produces the outer, and the outer produces the inner as a cyclical rhythm of inner and outer, outer and inner, inner and outer . . . much like breathing. Expanding and projecting, then contracting and drawing inward. It’s an electromagnetic pulsation that’s self-perpetuating, self-sustaining, and self-creating.

By embodying a quality of consciousness that calibrates and tunes our state of mind to that quality, becoming one with it, it modifies our minds vibration, and forms our perceptual lens that we look through, seeing in others and the outer world only what matches it. As we perceive, we stimulate with our directed attention, bringing out in them the same qualities that we ourselves possess and are using to interpret them to be of the same nature. This energetic interaction (we do this without any physical interaction) works through resonance and serves to awaken and begin vibrating – making active – the qualities of the same nature. As we activate and bring to the surface the corresponding state of mind, it sets the basis for the nature of the interaction, which serves to generate more of the same qualities, giving both people the experience of it, which then draws that quality back into itself in an amplified manner. Because we walk through our day reorganizing it to match or be the expression of our mood, we are always multiplying it, by reproducing it everywhere we go, and strengthening it in us and in everyone we come into contact with. All action (state and attention) produces an equal or greater reaction.

gods DNA

So if we embody a state of reverence, and we clearly define what is meant by the term reverence, such as admiration, adoration, respect, honor, compassion, and so on, and we install that state by forming a picture of it in our mind in terms of what it’s like to actually be that way, or recalling an actual memory where we felt that way, and by creating the reality of reverence internally, we become the vehicle for the frequency of reverence. Reverence, as a quality or state of being becomes the colored lens through which we look, and we only see in everything else what warrants reverence. As we see it, we speak to it, awaken and bring it out in them, and create a joint experience that’s “about” feelings of reverence, strengthening that state and the corresponding character traits in both people, which acts to accumulate more of those types of experiences as memory that serves to form us. By creating an abundance of a certain type of experience, accumulating and building up the memory it brings, and habituating the character traits it implies, we develop ourselves to that means, creating those “type of experiences”, and we no longer create out of the states that caused our “issues” and “bad character traits”.

Reality, as an experience of the outer world, is produced by the “inner state” or vibratory frequency of the mind. Our mind, as a mental paradigm or model for perceiving the outer world, is “adjusted and modified” by states of mind we employ on a regular basis. By recognizing unproductive states of mind that we use to create experience out of and intentionally replacing them with productive states, we literally begin sculpting our mind, forming it out of a new vibration that systematically produces a new type of reality, which then shapes us to that reality. We modify our vibration and the structure of our mind which produces our perception by willfully and deliberately calibrating ourselves to “states” and ways of being. All of life is formed as an inside job. In order to change the outer, not literally, but rather in terms of how it appears to us, we have to change the internal representation that’s producing it as an effect.

All of our bad character traits, problems, emotional and psychological “issues” that stemmed from our conditioning and the life experiences born out of those tendencies, are all the result of our inner state, which is what produces them. Our conditioning, all the patterns and dynamics that comprised it, were born out of the “state and mood” that we were “living within”, interacting through, and developing ourselves by way of through our living conditions. Our state is causal, and our outer reality is the effects it produces. To work on the effects without ever accurately identifying the cause, prevents us from healing and changing our life experiences. By focusing on other people or the events of our life as a way of trying to heal ourselves of them, by endlessly working through and rehashing them, is a very basic form of incorrect thinking. It’s an error in judgment. To change the effect produced in the external world, we have to change the cause which is produced in the internal world of the mind. It’s not what happens to us in life that matters per say, but how we respond to what happens, and who we become through our chosen response.

goldsmith

It’s very easy to notice that whatever mood we’re in determines what we focus on, what we think about, what emotions we experience in response to our thoughts, what memories we reference and use to create our present experience to be the same as our past experience, and so on. Our mood determines our entire experience and how we reorganize everything to form that experience. As soon as our mood changes, our experience of life changes, and what we focus on, dwell in, and actively engage in changes accordingly. All of our issues and tendencies are the result of the state of mind we were in when we created them. Our conditioning habituated us to the state of mind that produced our life experiences as being of a distinct nature and the theme that naturally comes out of that state. You can’t be sad when focusing on happy thoughts. Likewise, you can’t have happy experiences when focused on and embodying sad emotions and imagining the reality of those thoughts.

So the most basic skill to learn in terms of your spiritual (personal) development is to realize that you can control your state, and deliberately employ the states that will produce the type of experiences you desire to have more of, while simultaneously reshaping your mind and character by way of those states. Your mood, like anything else, is a product of habit, and can be changed by forming new habits in place of the old ones. Choose the state of mind you want to develop yourself out of and the type of reality you want to experience yourself through, and examine that state to recognize its components. There are three basic aspects at play in a state, all of which are in-sync with each other, and any one acts to automatically change the other one. So if you find it difficult to work by way of one of them, you can work by way of the other and it’ll act automatically to transform the other two to be of the same nature.

The 3 basic aspects of State:

  • What you focus on and give your attention to
  • What you tell yourself about what you’re focused on that makes it mean something
  • What you’re doing with your physiology – your body

All states are created by how we direct our attention and what we choose (consciously or unconsciously) to focus on, and what story we proceed to tell ourselves about what we’re focused on that creates our internal reality around it, all of which is directly reflected in our body. Our physiology as our demeanor, body language, gestures, and facial expressions is always formed by our internal state. Allow yourself to notice that when someone’s “happy”, there’s a whole physiology that goes along with it; they’re active, energetic, enthusiastic, use their hands a lot to talk, laugh, smile, sit up straight or on the edge of their chair, and so on. Likewise, when someone is sad or depressed, they’re sluggish, tired, pessimistic, slump or lay down, are distant, frowning or crying, and so on. All moods have distinct behaviors associated with them. We don’t have emotions, we “do” emotions. Emotions are something we allow and do internally, we act them out willingly.

So if you have trouble controlling your thoughts and what you focus your attention on and the stories you keep replaying over and over in your mind, then learn to work with your body. By employing the behaviors of the mood you want, it’ll automatically shift your attention onto the type of thoughts that are of those behaviors, and what you’re telling yourself about them. Change what you’re doing and you’ll notice what you’re thinking about changes also. When you begin getting good at being able to manage your state, allow yourself to notice that different states are ideal for different activities. Learn to study states so you can know what to focus your mind on, what to tell yourself about what you’re focused on that turns it into a story, and what type of behaviors to employ in order to produce it. This is a key feature to enhancing your performance in all areas of your life. Realize that different types of performance come naturally out of certain states. If you want to perform in an optimal way, intentionally embody the state that will produce the expression that you want. By learning and practicing this one skill alone, will have a drastic impact on all areas of your life, and what you now think of as your “issues”, will simply dissipate because you’ll no longer be living out of the state that acts to naturally produce them through your behaviors. Change the cause, and you change the effect. Your state of mind is the cause of all your life experiences which come as the result.

Internal Representations – How Our Mental Paradigm Creates our Reality

We don’t perceive the outside world “as” it actually is, a part from us, but rather by reshaping it to be like us. What’s being observed and the person doing the observing are a part of the same event, and together form a new creation. There’s really no such thing as an objective reality in the ultimate sense, because it’s perceived by an individual mind that reshapes it into a “subjective reality” by conforming it to the paradigm of the mind conceiving of it. Our mind exists as a subtle energy field that vibrates at a certain frequency and forms a “model” as a dynamic pattern that’s used to view the external world through as our perceptual lens that acts as a filtering system that abstracts only what’s of the same vibration or nature as it is, and then reorganizes that information into a new form by emphasizing some things while down playing others, reshaping how it appears, forming an internal representation of the outer world that’s used in place of the actual outer reality.

We’re never actually acting on reality as it is, a part from us, but rather on the internal representation (IR) we form of it. Our mental paradigm or “model of the world”, which is formed primarily out of beliefs, values, preferences, attitudes, memories, temperament, predispositions, etc., act as a filtering system through resonance that looks at any situation and only sees and abstracts (brings out) what’s of the same nature (belief, value, preference, etc.), that can be readily formed into the image and reality of our belief system, then acts to “reform” these aspects to fit our beliefs by emphasizing and exaggerating some aspects, while minimizing and ignoring other aspects, forming an idea in our mind that’s used in place of the outer, neutral reality. As we perceive, we reformulate and form a unique interpretation of the outer world as an internal idea that we then superimpose over (look through) in order to navigate the external world and create our own, personalized experience of it.

The IR that we use in place of actual reality is formed when our energy as vibration that’s directed through attention, enters into matter (material reality) through sympathetic induction, resonating only with what’s of the same vibration as a quality and characteristic, that it then harmonizes with, forming a unified and coherent vibration as a new variation of both. The two (outer and inner) begin vibrating in harmony with each other, modifying both into a slightly different version of the same idea. This process of transformation reshapes the outer object into an inner representation of that object as one possibility or as a personalized version of a universal idea. This is represented in Sacred Geometry by the Dyad, where one mind-field as structured consciousness enters into another “through” shared qualities (similar patterns), and forms an interference pattern that amplifies and accentuates some qualities while canceling out or contradicting other ones, reshaping the shared qualities into a new pattern as a unique version, while maintaining the overall theme inherent in the shared qualities and characteristics.

This merging of the same frequency together and remixing itself into a new vibration, known as an interference pattern, births a unique version as an internal representation comprised of shared qualities between the inner and the outer, birthing the triad. The triad, as an inner, personalized version of the individual and universal, forms a triangle or pyramid (one as a dual nature), which is then reflected or projected outward, reshaping the outer world to match the inner world of the mind (vibratory frequency) which creates it. This reflection of the triangle, forming another triangle, forms a diamond or square as the Tetrad, symbolic of the material world as created by the internal world of the mind. This is the basic law of “mind over matter”. The mind literally changes how matter appears by reformulating it. While we tend to think matter is solid and fixed, it’s actually not, it’s comprised of light (visible) and dark (invisible) energy that’s always morphing and fluctuating through the relationship it forms with the individual mind interacting with it.

The stuff of life, known as particles or the Prima Materia, is actually comprised of photons as light or astral substance (star stuff), that serves as a vehicle or housing for consciousness (mind), and exists as both a wave of pure but unexpressed potential, and as a particle that formed through the individual mind resonating with one of its potential states as a possibility for reality, and this form of natural selection as resonance “collapses the wave of infinite potential” around one possibility by shaping it into an internal reality as an imaginary representation of it. This representation as a specific expression and creation, is actually a symbolic representation of the whole as a theme, and is used that way by the subconscious mind, which uses it to form associations with what’s of the same thematic idea in everything around us, whereas the conscious mind tends to differentiate it and thinks of it in literal terms instead of as an analogy. However, the relationship between the inner and outer is one of correspondences based on thematic patterns, and is incredibly versatile and dynamic in nature.

Once one possibility (out of an infinite number) is formed in the individual mind through resonance and coherence, creating a new pattern as a fractal pattern (offspring of a larger parental pattern), it uses it in place of actual, neutral reality as a form of map, or as the means for traversing and maneuvering the outer reality. This personalized version that’s used in place of actual reality forms what we call “illusions of reality” that we mistake as real or actual. Of course we don’t realize we’re doing this, and so we further mistakenly believe that we’re perceiving the same reality as everyone else, and even when it becomes apparent we’re not, we call our version the “truth” or “calling it like it is”, rather than being able to truly comprehend the creative power of the mind to reshape basic elements, making them appear different by morphing into new forms. When one person holds their version of reality as being right or better over another, they’re demonstrating that they don’t recognize this law of vibration, and believe everyone who doesn’t agree with them to be delusional or mistaken. Most, when they do realize that everyone is seeing things in a different way, will then try to convince or introduce evidence to get the other person to agree with them by being able to “see the same thing”, which validates and supports their version of one possible reality, making them feel secure in themselves. The more we can get people to agree with us, the more solidly trapped in our own illusions we become.

Even if we’re quantum physicists and we’re observing the same outer phenomenon, the only way we would have of knowing whether or not it was real or true, is if two or more people “appear to be seeing the same thing” in terms of describing it in the fundamental sense. The term “illusions of the mind” is used a lot in spiritual texts because it’s a natural function of the mind to shape reality according to its paradigm and belief system. Whatever we believe, whether actual or not, we can “see perfectly” as an actual reality. Whatever exists outside of our beliefs, or that would act to contradict and disprove them, and can’t be explained or validated using our mental paradigm, we honestly can’t see. Our mental vibration is our lens and filtering system for seeing only in the outside world what can be symbolically represented as an internal concept. If we can’t form a working idea of it, we can’t conceive of it, and we can’t actually comprehend or understand it. This is why in science, for example, it does no good to ask one scientist to validate or agree with other scientists theories, when they’re operating out of different paradigms. One paradigm is not necessarily superior to another (although sometimes they definitely are), but just different and forms a different idea out of the same information.

The only thing that grows, expands, and evolves our mental paradigm, allowing for greater and more encompassing perception, is by learning and incorporating new forms of knowledge through the experience of it, which serves to upgrade and modify our paradigm to be able to see greater and more elusive forms of truth. Once we’re able to conceive of an idea through an imaginary process of internal representation that gives us a working understanding of it, the internal model serves as a theoretical model that provides the means for applying at the practical level through experimenting, to create the reality it implies. We only truly know by doing, and the experience created through application and practice, is what integrates the knowledge into our mental paradigm, altering its vibration as an expansion. As we contemplate new ideas and bring them into practice somehow, creating an outer reality as an experience with them, we turn them into an art form, and they become a permanent part of us as memory, and we can readily perceive them all around us in a completely natural manner. We only grow and develop by incorporating knowledge through practice which instills it in us by becoming “one with it” in mind and body, and by becoming the channel of expression for it, it becomes and remains a permanent part of us because it’s ingrained in our subconscious mind as “personal memory” as an integral part of the very structure of our mind, which is eternal in nature, and everlasting.

Choice and Freewill – Our Ability to Self-Create

Man is not only bestowed with a higher level of consciousness through our ability to create internal experiences out of external stimulus as thought, but also through our ability to choose and willfully act out that choice to create our own experiences. These self-created experiences then become our memory, which “in-forms” our system, through the integration of new information, which forms our individuality by evolving and differentiating our mental paradigm. As we think we reform the outer world into a personalized version as an internal representation of it, which we then use in place of our actual outer environment. Our inner experiences as feeling sensations composed into an analogy of the outer world, creates a subjective reality out of an objective, neutral reality. We then become subject to, controlled and determined by, our own creation. As we think, we become the product of our thoughts.

While many people think that what appears to be “not making a decision” or choosing between things, as not exercising our ability to choose, in fact, no choice is a choice. We’re always deciding through the very nature of our thoughts and what actions they lead to. Choice and will are always the same thing, because thought and action are merely extensions or projections of each other. Our internal representations as inward experiences produced out of outward stimulus, produce our mental state, which produces our physical state, and is always reflected in our facial expression, our physiology, and the behaviors we naturally take on. Thinking, being, and doing, are all correspondences of each other as inner feelings that shape outer forms, that become the template for expressing by doing or acting them out. We use an internal concept of the external world to act and create within it. This basic process of turning feeling sensations into internal realities as our thoughts about it, is the most natural form of choice and will there is.

While we think of choice as deciding between two or more options, it also comes in its most natural form as resonance, where we’re always in a state of rapport with an archetypal principle that we use to tune ourselves to the frequency of that principle. We don’t choose consciously in an aware and deliberate fashion, but unconsciously as a product of automated tendencies and preconceived assumptions. Our mental paradigm as the vibratory frequency of our mind, forms a model out of which our entire internal experience is formed as an interpretation of the outer world. As a structured model which resonates with the same frequencies in everything else, we literally abstract from the environment only what’s of the same vibratory range (nature) as we are, and then organize it into the pattern of our mental theme (frequency), and we experience it through our souls vibratory signature as a kind of customization. This ability to reshape the outer world into an inner experience that’s of a particular nature, the one that matches ours, is the most basic form of choice and will as natural selection that invokes action as its expression.

As we think, we self-create. First inwardly, then outwardly. Our thoughts as mental conceptualizations are the cause of our actions, and our actions produce a like effect outwardly, reshaping how things “appear” to us. We only see and can conceive of, what matches us energetically, what’s of the same nature and likeness, and what can therefore be used to create an inward experience as our nature. Like always produces and attracts like, and we’re only capable of experiencing the outer world inwardly through feeling sensations (vibration) that form into thematic patterns as a unique twist on a conventional idea. So as we go through life, we’re constantly filtering the outside world through our internal model, activating and pulling out what can be used to create our version of it as a life theme, while ignoring or failing to see what doesn’t. This reorganization that shapes universal patterns of mass consciousness into individual patterns of a personal nature (fractal patterns), as natural selection based on mental vibration, is the most basic form of choice we’re always involved in and willfully creating out of.

Will is the reshaping factor that forms new compositions that we then act out or act on, hat produces our inward representation as an outward experience. Just the act of thinking and perceiving that forms an inward reality in the imagination, is the power of will, because we have control over it and are the ones doing it. As we think and turn sensations into inner forms that re-present outer forms in our imagination, as a kind of substitute or illusion that’s used in place of objective reality to form first our perception and interpretation, then used to form our activities and how we act on the outer reality to reformulate it into our thoughts about it. We are always creating ourselves by way of our thoughts in response to our outer environment, which are produced by willing them. We re-form an outer reality that exists in a fully potential state of all possibilities (vibratory frequencies), into one possibility by how our mind abstracts only certain types of information from it, then reshapes it into the patterning of our vibration to become the channel for expression of that possibility. In order to express it we have to become it, and as we create an experience of ourselves “in it, being it”, we associate and identify with it, and we shape ourselves by way of it.

So we’re always employing and creating by way of choice and will whether unconsciously and automatically, or consciously and intentionally, where actual effort is required because the choice we’re making is not automatic, but requires considerable debate, and we engage in the mental activity to actually transform our vibration by first opening ourselves to new ideas, then integrating them through experience, reshaping our mind through their incorporation as a result. Once new information is fully integrated into our mental paradigm, we can perceive in new ways, form new interpretations based on our ability to conceive of new ideas, and we begin creating ourselves in new ways. We begin participating in our own evolution by willfully imposing a new direction on our life and becoming a new version of ourselves through the process.
