Vibration as Patterns of Energy – Fractal Patterns and the Soul’s Personal Signature for Creating

Perception is Reality

The nature of vibration is a sound frequency that shapes light into imagery and living ideas as potential scenarios. Vibration forms geometric patterns which structure the material world at the subatomic level. DNA, blood, and body tissue, for example, are formed out of pentagons and hexagons which are combined to form composite structures. All material matter in its most fundamental state is made up of photons as visible light that has zero mass and charge. Light, of course is invisible to the eye, so matter as a form of some kind is comprised of a non-material substance and is mostly invisible. An atom is a composition of subatomic particles that can either form into a series of particles revolving around a nucleus, or transform into a wave-form as more of a misty, cloud-like impression. All atoms possess both particle and wave properties, and only exist as a particle (something specific) when being observed or measured by a mind. When not being observed, it reverts back to a wave form that exists in a “potential state”. Vibration as subtle energy or essence, has a self-organizing mechanism that shapes matter (light) into forms that have distinct properties, modes of consciousness, and behave in specific ways while engaging in certain types of activities.

The structures that in-form a material body as a living entity, which is primarily geometric in nature, determine its quality and level of consciousness as a form of personality or personal signature that forms the basis for its individuality and unique characteristics. Subtle energy is the consciousness that inhabits and gives life to the material body, in which it first fashions (makes the cellular structure), and then consciously inhabits and uses as a vehicle for expressing through by forming an initial or parent pattern as a frequency or energetic signature, much like a theme that further shaped by a personal style, that continues to express and thereby create out of that same thematic pattern, forming all perception of reality as an offspring or analogous version of the same nature and likeness. These smaller fractal patterns as offspring of the parent pattern, form in a spiraling motion as expanding outward from center (projecting and superimposing), providing and energetic template that restructures the sensory reality its interacting with to vibrate at the same frequency, and then absorbs the corresponding reality as an “experience” that’s a form of regeneration, replication, and propagation.

The parent (original) pattern exists as a thematic idea, that extends outward as a mental projection, superimposing the vibratory frequency as an “organizing mechanism” onto everything outside of itself, reshaping the basic elements involved into the same type of idea, as an analogy to itself, then as it plays out its own idea about life, it captures its own pattern or projected frequency as an experience of itself that produces feedback, that’s absorbed into itself, sustaining and nourishing itself with more of the same frequency or idea, which is acquired as a memory. The soul-mind acts to rearrange the elemental properties of light in the outer world into the same pattern or idea as a corresponding vibration or quality of consciousness (through resonance), and sees (perceives) itself through its own arrangement, then absorbs that idea back into itself as its own self-created experience. In this way the soul acts to create all of its life experiences out of its vibratory frequency as a primary form of self-expression, creating experiences of the same nature that it then acquires as memories that it uses to continue creating itself as a form of self-programming out of the same vibratory frequency.

Whatever frequency we vibrate at, which is a distinct level and quality of consciousness as a paradigm or mental model of the world, we create more of as a projection (directed attention) and resonance that creates (interprets and composes) the outer to match (be of the same nature) the inner, creating our own personal experiences as a primal form of self-expression. Perception is an interpretation as a reformulated version of an outer neutral reality (elements) to conform to an idea as a thematic story that produces smaller patterns of the same type as the mental paradigm forming them. The object or material world being observed, and the individual mind doing the observing are a part of the same event or “reality”. How the outer reality appears to us as a form of interpretation, is a product of our own mind.

Vibration is a frequency as a range of vibration that forms a structured model as a mental paradigm, which modifies light (matter) into the same type of pattern as an offspring or natural product of the pattern itself. It doesn’t do this by changing the actual objective elements of what we call a shared, outer reality, but by changing how it “appears” in terms of the meaning we give it as the means for telling a story about it that creates how we experience it. We only notice and abstract from the outer environment and reorganize into a new composition what’s necessary to form our story about it. Our mental paradigm shapes how we experience all of life as the basic creative ability of the mind as a natural form of self-expression, much like an artist interprets their subject by how they “represent it” through their own personal style. How we “see the world” is how we see ourselves within that world through the relationship we form with it. The same model creates both our inner and outer perception. The outer is the equivalent reflection of the inner, which is produced by the vibrational structure of the mind as our mode of consciousness.

Subtle energy as vibration or “mental states”, organizes and transforms photons as energetic essence into the indigenous patterns of that vibration. Material substance is produced (created) by the concentration and organization of consciousness into living (moving) patterns of a distinct nature or personality. The nature of the patterns as a living entity forms classifications or species, which are further endowed with distinct personalities and characteristics as natural behaviors that comes as self-expression and creation. As we express through perception, which, through resonance, changes the appearance of the material world to take on the same image (form) and likeness (qualities) as the mind producing them. The mind as the individual soul only resonates (acts to vibrate) with the same frequencies as “qualities with characteristics” in the outer world, which changes the active and receptive properties within the circumstances, re configuring them into a new version that matches the mind producing it. Energy as vibration directed into material objects as attention with intention, through resonance, stimulates only what’s of the same nature as a vibration, entering into it, becoming one with it as sympathetic induction, and effects it, altering its state to match the state interacting with it, forming coherence (equalizes) as harmony which modifies the purely material aspect into the pattern or quality of reality as the mind that’s organizing it.

Quantum-Energy

Matter, as photons of light held together by invisible forces to form bodies (objects), doesn’t have consciousness (self-awareness and will) of its own, and acts merely as the passive receptor of individual consciousness as vibration, and shape-shifts according to the vibration inhabiting it. This is self-evident by the fact that we always see whatever we expect to see in a situation, and we act to trigger or stimulate the same state in others, which changes their behavior to match ours and they cooperate in acting out the same idea with us. While their physical form itself remains the same, technically speaking, how they appear and the nature of the energy driving their behavior can be strikingly different based on what state of mind they’re embodying. The mind only sees what it wants to see, and can only see what can be perceived through its mental model. It’s only capable of seeing what matches it. The nature and character of the individual produces their own version and experience of reality as the natural product of their mind.

If an idea exists outside of our model or mental paradigm, and we don’t have the ability to shape it into a mental concept as an internal reality or working model, we literally can’t conceive of it. It’s not real to us, and we reject it or argue against it. We can’t understand it, because it makes no sense to us. It’s only by being able to form a mental concept of something as “real”, understandable and therefore possible, that we can also perceive it in the outer world. In this way all “reality” (what’s real to us) is created by the mind as a unique and individual possibility. All of life as we know it is a product of our level and quality of consciousness. The mind (individual) literally produces a unique version of reality. Objective reality as nature, the original creation, or a dynamic living matrix of a broader range of frequencies all interwoven and existing within each other, is created by the universal mind of mass consciousness, and produces all the frequencies necessary for an infinite number of possibilities as potential realities, which are produced systematically by the individual mind.

Matter as light exists as a neutral aspect of consciousness, and is “impregnated” by consciousness, which in-forms it by shaping it into the pattern of the consciousness animating it. Matter, as photons of light, shape-shifts based on interaction (stimulation) as observation by the individual mind perceiving it. It forms into a complementary form as a correlation with the mind. Matter only exists as “something specific” when being perceived and interpreted (reformed into a correspondence) by the mind. It has no existence (specific form) outside of the mind. If a mind is not observing or perceiving it, it doesn’t exist “as” something, but rather turns back into a wave of potential as an impressionistic form that contains all forms within it in their potential state. The act of observing and the object being observed are a part of the same event or creative process. Matter is an illusion that caters and conforms to whatever mind is interacting with it. All of reality as we know it is an illusion as a possible variation produced by the minds ability to change the appearance of things to be whatever we believe, need, or want them to be. Our perception of the material world is an interpretation of what’s “real for us” and therefore “true”. The only thing that’s true is what we say is true and can be perceived by us as being real. The only absolute truth is the realization that all of life as we know it is an illusion or personal version created by the mind itself. Just as all of life comes from and exists within the Universal Mind of God, the individual life comes from and exists within the individual mind of the soul.

The Vibratory Structure of the Mind – Transforming your Mind through Self-Realization

Our Mind is always Absorbing and Digesting the Consciousness around us

toriodal

 

In order to understand how to grow and develop our mind, we have to get a thorough understanding of the structure of the mind and how it operates according to this structure. The most fundamental Law that governs all of life as we know it, is the law of vibration. Everything in life is made up of energy, not energy as a form of electricity, but subtle energy as the primal essence of consciousness and intelligence itself. Vibration isn’t just shimmering photons whose movement between two parameters creates an illuminated astral, or ghost-like phenomena, but also has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it, that shapes light into distinct patterns based on its vibratory frequency. Whatever frequency (rate and mode) something vibrates at moves it up and down a vibratory scale as levels and qualities of consciousness, much like a musical scale of octaves which build, expand, and increase as they move up the scale.

The pattern inherent within a vibration forms the “structure of the mind”, which is a multi-dimensional sphere-like flowing field that exists within the level of its vibratory frequency, and “breathes” (rotates by expanding and contracting) in a toroidal sphere-like motion, that merges into and absorbs, and integrates all the subtle energy within near proximity of it that’s of the same vibratory frequency. This absorption, digesting, assimilating, and elimination is the law of energy itself as resonance, sympathetic induction, modification, and coherence. We’re always in the process of exchanging energy as consciousness with everything and everyone around us, modifying and evolving our mental structure to be equivalent to our environment. This process of constant emanation, acquisition, integration, and discharge is the fundamental law of evolution that always keeps us in-sync with the outer environment within which we have to live, function, and survive. This constant energy exchange is occurring simultaneously at conscious, semi-conscious, and unconscious levels all the time.

rainbow torus

This oscillating field of energy, known as the mind, is a single entity that’s dual in nature and exists on several corresponding planes simultaneously. It’s an electromagnetic field that flows in a rotational expanding and contracting movement, which expands outward from its center, then folds back on itself and is absorbed back into its core. This field is dual in nature (masculine and feminine), and moves as two fields spiraling in opposite directions simultaneously, creating a stabilized, self-perpetuating system that’s much like a whirlpool. It has a center that’s bonded to a material body, and a peripheral range extending quite some distance from the body. This field has a dual nature as gross and subtle, with the strongest, concentrated part three to four feet from the body, where energy exchange is immediate and intense and felt in a direct (conscious) manner, and as it moves further out, it gradually becomes more subtle in nature, and is no longer experienced in a sharp, pronounced manner, but rather as a notion, feeling, or distant thought (semi-conscious) that has a fleeting quality to it. Our mind, as an electromagnetic field that extends quite some distance from our body in a tiered gradation, still possesses the self-organizing mechanism inherent in vibration itself, and not only influences and modifies the formation and organization of all other mind fields in near proximity to it, but also has a larger organizing quality, that not only attracts or magnetizes whatever is of the same quality as itself, but organizes the greater events of our life, by forming them into indigenous patterns.

While the gross energy in our immediate environment comes quickly and felt strongly, then subsides and dissipates almost as quickly as it came, producing short term effects of a heightened intensity, the subtle aspects that extend great distances from the body, organize larger events into the same thematic pattern, that involve numerous objects, people, and a dynamic series of correlated events, that come into fruition over an extended period of time through synchronicity. Whatever our vibration (state-of-mind) is, not only creates our life experiences in the moment, and how we influence and are influenced by everything around us, but is also producing our destiny as the same patterns happening over greater and greater amounts of time. Whatever our vibration determines the patterns of our life as habits, rituals, and tendencies that we simply repeat over and over, sometimes throughout the entire life of our body. Through energy that we absorb and integrate that’s of a similar nature to us, we’re always in the process of undergoing a constant form of transformation, but it’s usually within the same frequency or range of vibration because that’s all we can naturally comprehend, relate to, and exist in relationship with.

human torus

Our entire experience, whether past, present, or future, is produced by our mental paradigm as a dynamic living model that we not only “look through” to perceive and experience the world around us by way of it, but also literally interacts with the entire energetic world, forming it into similar patterns through a stimulating (electric) mechanism, that activates certain qualities, while deactivating others, modifying the form and appearance it takes on. All energy as the subtle energy of pure consciousness, is in a constant state of a shimmering luster, dynamically changing form according to its interactions, absorption, digestion, and repulsion on a moment by moment basis. Yet most of these changes are so subtle and automatic in nature, always being within the same range of vibration that we are, that we don’t even notice them, and maintain a consistent experience of reality while undergoing a constant, yet gradual form of transformation as an evolutionary process.

While many people think that a paradigm shift takes place through a moment of inspiration and sudden realization, or what they call a “ah-ha” moment, where you suddenly get something you couldn’t see before, it usually happens in much more of a gradual fashion of learning and obtaining knowledge that’s applied at the practical level in order to gain realization around it that serves to consistently expand your ability to conceive of greater and greater aspects of reality that are subtle in nature, and require you to move beyond previously set boundaries in incremental steps, until a form of threshold is crossed. We have to absorb and assimilate information that’s at the very outer edge of our current perception in order to be able to absorb and digest it. If it’s too far out or foreign to our current paradigm (frequency), we literally can’t absorb or comprehend it by resonating with it, and therefore act to reject it or fail to be able to see it, and it doesn’t produce a realization as the means of stretching our paradigm to include it.

Once an idea is fully realized, whether through a gradual process of study, learning and acquiring new information, or through a sudden moment of realization that simply comes to us out of nowhere or through an association, and through the realization of it as an inner experience we absorb and incorporate it, and it acts to upgrade and modify every aspect of our paradigm that it’s involved in or a part of, automatically. This is what the term “shift” means, every aspect of the internal form of the mind is modified by the new information, and has a systematic adjustment that changes the entire structure. Once this modification of the mind takes place, what was realized becomes a normal part of everyday perceptions. We readily perceive the idea as a part of our everyday reality, and therefore, the reality naturally produced or organized by our mind changes accordingly. We literally see new versions of reality. We actually experience a shift in our vibratory frequency and vibrate at a new expanded level and quality.

interference pattern

The vibratory frequency of our mind forms a natural structure as a “model of the world” that projects and tunes us into a certain type of reality as our perception and experience of what we otherwise call an objective, universal, or shared reality. While the greater shared reality consists of the same basic elements for everybody who’s a part of it, what we “see” in those elements and what aspects we notice or don’t notice, how we arrange information as patterns that tell stories about things, is unique to everyone, and is the creative nature of the individual mind operating below the level of awareness in what seems like an automatic fashion.  As we incorporate new information into our mind through studying, applying knowledge, and life experiences, our reality shifts and is “in-formed” by way of it. But learning doesn’t come through memorizing what’s presented as factual or through mental speculation, but rather through applying the information through practice of some sort to create an experience of it. L-earn, by living it we earn it. Through the experience it provides we gain realization of it as a reality (we become one with it and give it expression through us) and it’s integrated into our mind as a memory. Our mind is structured by memory as actual experience. To have “knowledge of” something, only comes through an intimacy with it.

Once a paradigm shift takes place, we live out of a different experience of reality, and no longer relate to our previous state. As we grow through constant study, application and acquisition of knowledge, we can no longer recall the reality of our previous states. We lose touch with them, and though we can recall the events of our life in an objective manner, we can’t remember the reality we were in when they occurred in terms of how we experienced them at the personal level, and we can no longer relate to who we were when we were going through them. As our mind grows and expands to greater and greater levels of reality, and we vibrate at a significantly different level over an extended period of time (30 – 40 years), our personality and identity changes along with it, and we no longer identify with previous levels. We literally lose our ability to remember them from the same mentality we were in when we created them. We literally become “different people”, live in a different level of reality, and serve to create and engage in different types of activities. This is because once our vibration shifts to a high enough level (out of the previous range), we no longer resonate with lower levels.

The act of “remembering” (re-member), is viewing reality from within it, by being of the same consciousness that produced it. When we’re no longer a member of the quality of consciousness producing and conceiving of that level of reality, we can’t recall it as an experience. While we can recall the factual event itself, we relate to it in a whole new way, and experience it through a different level of consciousness, which evolves the event of the memory to the current level of consciousness. We literally transform our memories by growing and expanding our consciousness which acts to “reinterpret them”. All memory is “state based”, and can only be relived from the same state that it was created in. This is the true secret to healing, which only comes through conscious growth and moving to a higher (more expanded) vibration that no longer perceives or acts to produce the previous reality. The saying “a problem can’t be solved by the same mind that created it”, is identifying this phenomenon, and provides us with the key to transforming all “problems” in our life, not by “working with them” within the level they occur, but by transcending them.

Vibration, Mental Projection, and Creating New Versions of Reality

The Vibratory Frequency of the Mind exists as a Paradigm that Shapes our Experience of Reality

2-people-with-energy-in-between

The state of mind that we exist in as a form of mood, determines our attitude, perspective, and the emotional theme we use as a filtering system in forming our fundamental perceptions, experiences, and behaviors. Our mood as a quality of consciousness, which we act the channel for, is our vibratory frequency, and is what “organizes” everything outside of us to match the theme being played out internally through our imagined thoughts. Whatever state we’re in determines what we focus on and give our attention to, what memories we access and run through our mind as a means of interpreting the present to mean the same thing as the past, conforming it to our theme, and how we act and behave as a result. Our state-of-mind as our vibratory frequency has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that aligns the entire mind-body system to express in a consistent and congruent fashion. How we’re feeling produces how we’re being and what we’re doing.

Our mood “is” our vibratory frequency or quality of consciousness that’s constantly being projected and transmitted out into the space around us, and interacting with that same quality of consciousness in everything else by resonating with it. Our mood or emotional state emanates from within, influencing others around us with the same type of feeling. At the same time, we’re drawing more of the same vibration or feeling energy back to us, absorbing it, being nourished and strengthened by it, multiplying and increasing it, while acquiring and accumulating it. Our vibratory frequency as our state-of-mind is the entire energy field that surrounds, envelops, and operates through our body. We literally “look through” our mind as a mental lens or filtering system, and notice in others and the environment only what’s of the same nature (quality), and can be readily used to create the reality of that mood, which makes it “provable” by appearing to be factual and objective. Because we only see and experience the reality of our mood, which validates, strengthens, and supports it as being “real”, we don’t realize that we’re actually creating it with our mind, and that we can change our experience of reality by simply changing our mind.

Afterlife - alien planet - DMT - stargate

Our mind is an electromagnetic field which surrounds and expands several feet from our body, while transmitting its frequency and acting to stimulate the same frequency in everyone and everything around us, bringing out and making active the equivalent qualities in them through our influence, and they begin cooperatively participating in playing out the same “type” of reality as a behavioral dynamic that expresses the same feeling state. As we perceive through our mental filters, we project or superimpose our mind as a pattern of qualities or “thematic model” onto others (look through it), and see in them the same thing that’s in us. Not necessarily in the same position or role in a “joint theme”, but as the complementary role necessary to play out the shared theme as a relationship (dynamic interaction). Projection, as what we “see in others” that causes a reaction of some sort in us in relation to them, is identifying the complementary opposite of the same dynamic which can be acted out together to create a joint experience of the same nature. What we think about somebody else, and react to, is the same quality we ourselves possess, which is why we’re having a reaction or feel a strong emotional response to them. Our behavior towards others is the perfect stimulus for bringing out in them what we believe is there to bring out.

Our mental and emotional projections are stimulating at the invisible, subtle level, and are being received and felt by everyone around us all the time. Matter, as the organic substance of life that acts as a receptor for consciousness and is structured into a material bodies that represent the qualities of consciousness inhabiting it, at the molecular level, interacts with the mind (our own and others) and reformulates the appearance matter takes on accordingly. This is readily demonstrated in the “placebo effect” which works solely off the power of belief and our ability to direct and manipulate the biological world to produce the reality or effect of our belief. This is further demonstrated in what’s called “double blind tests” in which both people involved (doctor and patient) believe the same thing (that the placebo works), which increases its effectiveness. This is because the disbelief of one person (say, the administering doctor) is demonstrated and communicated through their subtle behaviors in stating what the placebo will do (is not convincing), and produces a subtle effect on the unconscious mind of the other person, introducing doubt, and thereby alters the overall outcome. Whenever an experience is being conducted involving the mind, it’s important that all people involved in the process are of an open mind or share the same belief, because at the invisible, energetic level of the mind, they will have a direct effect on the overall outcome.

What we believe, and therefore perceive about others reveals to us what dynamic we’re programmed with as a vibratory frequency. It shows us what type of relationships we are prone to, and always acting at the subconscious level to attract and co-create. As children we’re imprinted with a dynamic as a behavioral theme. This imprinting is produced and seated through intense emotional interactions and events of some sort that have a strong impact on us. Because it’s a dynamic we “live within”, we’re trained to naturally perceive and play a role in the same dynamic. We form numerous responses to the behaviors being demonstrated by others, and because we form the same perceptions through the mental paradigm that forms because of the interaction, we naturally produce the behaviors that stimulate the pattern itself through the memory we acquire because of our experiences, and live within (act out) that same thematic pattern in all areas and relationships of our life in one way or another.

The family dynamic we’re trained to, even though as children we play only one distinct role (from the perspective of the child) in that dynamic, as we become the adult, we naturally take on begin relating to the adult position in that same pattern and continue acting it out by being able to play any role in it. What role we play depends on what role our co-star takes on in the same pattern. We can readily move back and forth between the passive role and the dominating role of the same idea. We’re always initiating it and reacting to it at the same time. We only enter into relationships with those who have similar imprinting and can participate in co-creating the same feeling experience as an ongoing relationship, expressed through a variety of situations and life circumstances. So even though the elements and people may change as circumstances, the “same idea” is being acted out in a new environment with new players as a slight modification.

When we say that the mind “creates reality”, we don’t mean literally by producing something out of thin air, but rather that the mind can take any situation or circumstances, and through a sorting process of only abstracting and reorganizing certain aspects of it, makes it “appear” different. Our mind through our perceptual lens reinterprets a neutral reality of vast potential, into a possible variation as a personal creation. Everybody who’s apart of the same event as an objective reality, will view and experience it in a different and unique fashion from everybody else. No two people will experience it in the same way. Some people’s experience will be considerably different (of a completely different frequency), some will be kind of similar (in close range), and others will be along the same lines (of a similar vibration).

We rearrange the elements and qualities in any situation, by noticing some, and not noticing others, changing the active components, then interpreting the selected elements through a story we tell ourselves about it that creates how we experience it. So even though we all share the same neutral and objective outer reality, how we experience it by creating our own personalized version of that reality, is our minds natural creative ability. As we change our mind, how things appear to us changes accordingly. As we learn and incorporate new knowledge through an experience of some form, we alter our minds structure as a mental paradigm, and it changes how we see and experience everything else based on how the integration restructures our mind’s “patterning” as a shift in vibration. We only change our vibration by changing our mind, which changes how we see the world around us and how we experience it as a result.

The Intuitive Interpretation of Subtle Energy – How to Read Energy

All Senses are Interchangeable

 

serpent power

In order to understand this idea, we have to first realize the relationship between what we call material reality and the mind, or the invisible consciousness that’s always perceiving and interacting with itself within the material world. Our physical senses; sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste, are how we cognitively experience what we call material reality. The only things that are “real” are perceived with the senses, and what’s not real, can’t be perceived with the senses. Here, of course, the word “real” means of a material nature. Naturally it takes material senses, or what’s of the same nature to perceive anything within the same “plane” or level of consciousness. Invisible forces or what we call subtle energy, which is what we know “holds together” the material world (an atom is a group of particles held together while in motion by invisible forces) as different forms or ideas, is sensed (experienced) as a “feeling” that systematically forms into an idea as an inner imagining that replicates a material idea.

Another way we can look at this idea, is by realizing that any sensory aspect, will produce all the other ones automatically. For example, you can taste a color, smell it, hear it, and get a mental image of a form and texture associate with the color. Likewise, the same color produces a psychological effect by making you feel a certain way or putting you in a distinct mood when seeing it, being around it, or thinking of it. The same holds true for any of the other senses. A smell will produce a mental image, has a color associated with it, a taste, and makes you feel a certain way. Through a natural chain-of-association any sensory experience stimulates the other ones automatically. All aspects of reality contain all other aspects simultaneously as a coherent idea or impression of reality. Likewise, all sensory stimulation produces a feeling as a state-of-mind or mood. This feeling as a state, is purely invisible and has no material properties (sensory), though it can systematically “produce” a mental impression infused with or comprised of sensory properties.

awakening

Though the material – sensory world – is dual in nature and perceived (experienced) as being a dynamic conglomeration of individual things that are all a part from each other (particles revolving around a nucleus held together as a single entity by empty space) and opposite (opposing) each other, in reality they are all a product of invisible forces or consciousness that produces them by birthing them. All reality is a formula of different qualities and properties combined to form unique patterns as ideas that are perceived as physical forms, spread out in space as a whole idea comprised of different parts, all in relationship with and contrasting each other. All interconnected as a form of hologram, where any one aspect contains within it all other aspects as a systematic unfoldment that brings into physical form an invisible idea by shaping light (photons) into sensory representations as mental concepts. We form what starts in our mind as a transparent idea into a reality as a working concept in order to conceive of it and ultimately come to understand of it. All creation comes as transparent ideas that are brought into physical reality as a conception or practical concept. All reality as we know it, is a product of the imagination that takes a feeling (vibration), fixates on it internally, and allows it to spontaneously unfold in the mind as a living form or reality. This conceptual form becomes the blueprint for producing it as an “actual” material reality. Everything that has ever become “created” began as an idea in the imagination (mind’s eye).

Through this same process, we can conceive of the consciousness infused in or inhabiting an object or material form. Consciousness itself exists a part from and independent of the material form, and has the natural ability to pass through and enter a form, inhabiting it, and expressing through it. The form is the vibratory equivalent of the energy that’s capable of using it as a vehicle for expression, and possesses the same qualities as physical attributes. Consciousness, as vibration, is magnetized into matter through resonance, and becomes the “life” of the form in essence, as its internal nature, personality, and natural behaviors it takes on and processes it systematically engages in. Normal material forms of lower consciousness, that don’t have any creative ability, simply act as a receptor for absorbing the consciousness around it. It acts as a carrier for/of consciousness, which acts to impregnate it. Matter is the passive aspect of consciousness, and spirit (life-force) is the active component. The active force of the same nature (vibration) enters into matter (sympathetic induction) as the passive component and alters it to form joint consciousness as a modified vibration (coherence).

image004

This energy that emanates from material objects as the consciousness infused in it (bonded with it), can be sensed as a feeling. If we simply focus on the feeling it gives us internally, with an open mind that’s not controlling it, a mental impression forms as an idea that has sensory properties – a form, texture or quality, sound, color, smell, taste, and so on – that reveals it’s true inner nature or energetic potential. All this takes place in the mind’s eye as an imaginary process of consciousness forming a living pattern as an idea out of light (astral substance). This imaginary idea comes in its transparent state as a mental impression. This metal impression shows us the “inner nature” or quality of consciousness inhabiting the form, or that the form is acting as a vehicle for.

The way to tell the difference between true intuition as an inner knowing and your own imagined idea about something, is to create an open and unbiased mind that’s free from all personal reaction as a judgment or opinion about it, and allow the process to take place from a completely neutral state. By allowing a feeling to enter into us without an intention or direct connection to it, and no need whatsoever to control or interpret it to make it mean something, and we allow it instead to reveal itself to us “as it is”, a part from us, we can perceive the nature of it in very accurate terms. Again, once we start reacting to it in any way, or trying to decide what it means, we corrupt it and modify it to our own means. This is one of the reason why releasing the tendency to judge everything or perceive it through our judgment of it is so important. As long as we’re judging, we’re unable to see the true nature of things, and instead only see our judgments about it. The idea inherent in the judgment takes control of our imagination and forms the idea that corresponds to the judgment instead. Our mind has the direct ability to shape sensory reality to match our beliefs about it. We only see in things outside of us the same ideas we nourish and give life to inside of us. In order to perceive things as they truly are, we have to cultivate a neutral and non-opinionated mind. We have to relinquish all need to control and therefore determine by our natural ability to willfully shape things.

A New Way of Understanding the True Nature of the Subconscious Mind

We Exist in a Primary State of Self-Hypnosis where we Self-Create and Form all of our Life Experiences

The most basic principle governing the mind (and energy) is the idea of “one entity” existing in three fundamental aspects. The mind of an individual exists in what we call 3 basic aspects that move from greater to smaller, and from universal (non-local) to personal (local). The 3 aspects of our mind are traditionally called our Higher mind, lower mind, and individual mind; which also correspond to the Super-conscious, subconscious and self-conscious minds, or the spirit, soul, and body. Of these 3 aspects, 2 emerge out of the greater mind and into the lower material dimension where they function in the material world as a body and mind. The Super-conscious remains on a higher plane that oversees the lower and acts as the choreographer for the 2 lower minds and their life experiences. This is represented in religion as the trinity, and in Sacred Geometry as the Triad, which is symbolized by the triangle or pyramid, with the upper single point that divides to form the 2 lower points that are on the “same plane” and exist as parallel opposites of the same line, both forming a right angle to the upper, single point. This diagram represents the 3 in 1 law , as the one entering into matter (lower plane), and dividing forming and electromagnetic field as complementary opposites of the same vibration or entity (the story of Adam being divided forming dual aspects as masculine and feminine), and also the Yin and Yang, where 2 complementary opposites form a greater whole.

The basic activity governing all law is the concept of the “one” (Monad) birthing all others as inner aspects of itself that form a growth process of becoming, or spontaneously emerging “out of each other” as an unfolding or invisible center giving rise to the visible form as the inner becoming the basis for the outer. The inner as the feminine aspect is impregnated with (contains in seed form) the masculine, and the masculine rises “out of” (is birthed by) the feminine forming the outer expression of the same nature. The masculine is the extension and outer reflection of the feminine. This is symbolized in religion by the “Madonna (sometimes “black”, representing inner) and the male child (usually “white” representing the outer)” as her offspring. This primary universal law of the one with three aspects, exists equally on all levels and scales of existence as a relationship with itself in everything else, and as the life and death cycle that governs the lower material plane. Yet the Higher self/mind, which is never a part of the lower material plane, is eternal in nature and never dies, but continues evolving through various forms of itself in relationship with everything else.

71138-sacred-geometry

The soul as an individual mind or entity, first unfolds and descends into the material body as the subconscious mind, which operates the body in a purely automatic and natural manner and gives life to the body. The subconscious is the passive and receptive (feminine) aspect that carries the seed of the self-conscious (masculine) mind within it, and slowly births the conscious mind through a natural process of “becoming” by forming its identity out of the relationship it forms with the outer material world. What we call the “conscious mind” as our self-awareness emerges out of the subconscious mind as an outer aspect of it (masculine), which forms its identity as its “self-image” or self-awareness by identifying with the body as having a purely material existence, which forms what we call the false ego (identity). Our conscious mind, which is our “thinking, projecting and storytelling mind” is completely identified with the body out of which it forms as a natural offspring. The Higher mind resides fully on a higher plane, is singular in nature (androgynous) and contains both the masculine and feminine aspects of the “self” (whole being), which remains fully identified with its spiritual and eternal existence. Every human being, whether male or female in gender, are dual in nature and possess both feminine and masculine aspects as an active and passive component that stimulate and interact with one another forming a unified experience of material reality as the inner subconscious mind and the outer self-conscious mind.

As the complementary opposites of each other they also exist in a fundamental state of paradox, governed by what appears to be contradictory ideas that embody opposite aspects as a fundamental part of a unified reality and possessing both qualities (masculine and feminine) within themselves, that only “appears to be” separate and dual in nature. While the subconscious is body oriented and runs all biological activities of the body in a completely automatic fashion, it doesn’t “identify” with the body, but rather maintains an integral relationship with the whole of the outer world, failing to perceive itself as separate. The conscious mind, born out of the subconscious at puberty, forms a concept of itself as separate from everything else and as identified (sensing itself) with the body, seeing itself as an individual. The subconscious is what we could call the greater mind as the mind-field of the body, which extends quite some distance from the body, and is always in the process of blending with the consciousness of everything around it as what we call “mass consciousness”, the instinctual field, or the morphological field, and is undergoing the same metabolic process of absorbing energy of a similar nature, being impregnated by its consciousness, becoming one with it, digesting it, and reforming itself through the incorporation.

conscience

Aspects of the mind exist as fields nested within greater fields, all interacting and taking on qualities of consciousness that it resonates with. Because the mind is subtle and electromagnetic in nature, as it extends out into the environment, it magnetizes and draws into itself from the environment the same qualities that it possesses in its complementary and opposite form. As it draws in and resonates with the same quality of consciousness in everything else, it changes its vibration through the integration as a means of harmonizing with it, and acquiring new aspects of the same qualities transforms (morphs) to become like those qualities. We’re always taking on and digesting the compatible consciousness of everything around us, and adjusting to become of the same consciousness. This energy exchange is constantly going on without our direct awareness of it. As we take on the energy of everything around us, modifying our mind accordingly, it changes our state and who we are internally. As we change internally through the acquisition and incorporation of complementary energies, we morph and transform, and begin acting out those qualities through behaviors and activities. As we begin behaving differently, and sensing ourselves by way of our new behaviors and way of being which forms our experiences, our identity changes by way of them.

So whatever environment we exist in, we are in the process of becoming like. Whomever we live with or associate with on a regular basis, we gradually become similar to by taking on the same qualities and mind-set while engaging in the same kind of activities with a similar attitude, and forming the same type of behaviors as a result. This is one of the most fundamental laws known as transformation and evolution to different states of being as a relationship between the inner and the outer. The inner effects and transforms the outer, and the outer effects and transforms the inner in a flowing back and forth movement. There’s always a dynamic play going on as stimulus-response between the masculine and the feminine energies within the same mind or quality of consciousness that ultimately forms our individuality.

Likewise, the relationship between higher and lower planes, which are parallel, yet at right angles to each other, form a paradoxical relationship between group consciousness of a species and being one with everyone else, and our individuality as our ability to perceive ourselves as separate from everyone else, and honoring our own awareness and experiences instead of giving them up in favor of adopting other people’s ideas. The group mind, which is invested in the same consciousness and behaviors, much like the instinct of animals who are driven without thought and move in herds as a single unit, is a basic aspect of the lower, subconscious mind which is an inherent part of the material plane and the outer environment, and because it’s passive in nature, it takes on and expresses whatever suggestion it’s given and accepts it without question. This is the conditioned mind that’s trained to the mentality of the group, and lacks the desire or ability to contrast it instead and think for themselves. The subconscious forms all behaviors as automatic or habitual tendencies that we act out without having to think about or exercise our creative power of choice and free will.

toriodal

In order to become self-aware and exercise our power or choice and the will to act out our choice in an intentional and deliberate manner, we have to learn how to dissociate from everything around us, recognize and release our attachment to our material existence as a bodily identification, and venture out on our own by learning how to question everything, think for ourselves, form our own perceptions by exercising reason and honoring our own inner awareness, and in doing so, start becoming aware of our true self. Our conscious mind when identifying itself as the body, and creating an image of itself through purely material means, bonds itself to the material plane and a false identity. It’s false because its existence in a specific material body is temporary, and so that which is formed out of it is temporary also and dies with the body. Once we no longer have a body and the conditions and relationships it existed within, we don’t know “who” we are, and immediately gravitate into another body seeking a sense of ourselves again through a body. In this way, we fail to ascend to higher levels of consciousness in the spiritual realm, which is where our true identity lies. Whatever we “identify with”, we bond with energetically by becoming one with it, sensing our “self” through it, and remain attached to.

Like all divine paradoxes, the idea within the material realm is to utilize our conscious (thinking and willful) mind to program (give suggestion to) our subconscious mind to become an individual by self-creating, and yet all divine communication as spiritual guidance comes through the subconscious mind as a passive medium, and is recognized by the conscious mind as “direction and guidance” coming from a higher authority. In order to transcend our lower, animal-like nature we need to separate ourselves from the group mind and take conscious control of our own development, which we do “through” the subconscious mind, which is the “active mind” of the material plane, and the self-conscious mind, when identified properly, is the active aspect of the spiritual plane, and so the conscious mind gives direction to the subconscious instructing it on how to be and what to do “as” the passive vehicle for the higher-self. The subconscious mind is the power house of the material plane and forms all of our bodily functions and produces our actions and behavior, which is what “creates in the material world”. The conscious mind, which is pure thought that creates reality by thinking and making up stories about it, is similar to the spiritual aspect of the mind that works within the invisible realm of pure thought and ideas, and has the ability to be what “causes” the material realm and directs all behavior and operations through a form of trance and suggestion, but of course, it has to “know it can”, and act to prevent its own tendency to use the power of thought to create fantasy worlds out of beliefs that are dissociated from actual reality as a form of escape or mis-creation instead.

The relationship between our subconscious and conscious mind works exactly like a hypnotic process. Our subconscious is always in a form of “trance” as a passive and receptive state, and our conscious mind which is “thought oriented”, gives the subconscious “suggestions” as thoughts that are imagined as an actual reality. So what we think about and imagine as if it were an actual experience or material reality, plants a seed in the subconscious mind as the “potential” and request or desire for an actual experience of reality. This imagined thought, which the subconscious mind perceives in much the same way as an actual memory, is a form of “command or directive” for the subconscious mind to produce more of by “attracting and absorbing” it from the environment, while producing the behavior of it at the same time. By producing the behavior associated with the thought, the conscious mind forms its identity around and out of how it senses itself through the behaviors, and identifies with its own self-created experience. As the subconscious is “programmed” with the idea of the thought, and seeks to “find and blend with that same idea all around it”, we find ourselves meeting people and in situations and circumstances that orchestrate and act out the idea as a living (material) reality. Matter takes on consciousness and becomes the vessel or vehicle for that consciousness to express in the material world as an “actual” experience. Through the experiences we create by what we think about, we simultaneously create ourselves by way of those experiences.

Meditation – The Acquisition of Knowledge and Penetrating Deeper Levels of Reality

[custom-facebook-feed]

Learning how to Exercise the Powers of our own Mind

Mind

When we use the term “meditation”, who knows exactly what it means, because like all words and ideas it means different things to different people. Some perceive it as stopping all thought as internal dialogue or calming the “talking mind”, others call it blending into the void (nothingness) and emptying the mind, which is kind of the same idea, others achieve it through chanting or repeating a sound or word as a mantra (which is a basic method of trance induction); and others may be completely confused or unsure of what it means. Yet, all of these ideas are true and untrue at the same time. Meditation, which is a form of trance or self-hypnosis, is primarily a calming or stilling of the internal dialogue (self-conscious mind) as the fluttery,  jumping from one subject to the next, or the type of thought that’s automatic, uncontrolled, and runs on and on about stuff in a repetitive manner like a “broken record”, stuck on replay, and instead forms a calm and passive state of mind and through a deepened state of concentration, enters into a singular mind with the idea or concept being concentrated on. Through this single-mindedness of becoming one with an idea, we penetrate that idea or enter into it as it (resonance), giving it life inside of us by thinking about it in terms of what we already know about it, which initiates and unfolding process, much like a growth process, which continues unfolding beyond the boundaries set by our current perception, where we attain knowledge of it by simply witnessing or observing it as it continues to unfold, revealing it’s secrets to us, allowing us to “attain knowledge” by being in a passive and receptive (trance) state.

It’s only through this passive state of simply focusing on and observing an idea in motion inside of us that we’re not acting to control, that we truly learn through direct experience. Anytime we’re in a controlled state of only thinking about what we already know or believe we know, and controlling the idea to fit our idea about it, we can’t readily perceive anything outside of it. While we’re in control of our thinking, we can only perceive (produce) more of the same type of thinking. When, however, we fixate our mind on an idea, and penetrate it by concentrating on it in a single-minded fashion, stimulating it into motion within us as a kind of growth process of deepening into its internal nature, we “see” it as it actually is, apart from us (not modifying it with our active mind). As we move into it with a neutral and unbiased mind it begins moving inside of us as a living force, and begins revealing its true nature to us. We then attain knowledge of it by simply observing it as it forms and moves within our mind as a living idea.

yoga

Anytime we become fully present and engage in an activity with full awareness as concentration, free of distractions or thoughts that replace and cover over or modify our actual experience, we are in a meditative state. When we practice constant meditation by becoming fully present with what we are doing, and we become one with our experience of the present activity or idea we’re engaged in, we form realization around it that brings a new awareness of it that went unnoticed with a half-minded state of constant distraction and mental preoccupation that prevents us from being in the present. By being present and concentrating our attention on what we’re doing and our experience in doing it, we attain constant realizations that eluded us whenever we weren’t paying attention. Many people as a general rule can spend the better part of their life never present with what they’re doing and how they’re being, but rather caught up in a constant thought process that has nothing to do with what they’re doing. Because of this human tendency to be consumed by a wandering, fluttery, spaced out mind, we can live the better part of our life from an unconscious delusional state. Because of this, we fail to learn and grow from our experiences, and simply run the same type of thoughts over and over, creating our current experiences out of delusions or beliefs of the past, and failing to learn through realization only obtained in the present.

A state of meditation, comes from our ability to control our mind, stay focused in the present, and penetrate ideas born out of our daily practices as concentration on the now. All true knowledge as an inner realization only comes to us through direct experience. It’s our experiences obtain with an open mind that show us the true nature of things. Our mind, through concentrated attention void of verbal thinking, or superimposing a belief over the present experience changing it, and simply being present with it, observing and experiencing it as it is, attains knowledge “of it” through self-awareness. All knowledge comes to us by becoming “one with an idea”, and perceiving it by being it. By being the mode through which it expresses, we perceive it “as us”. We become the channel through which it becomes realized as an inner experience or realization.

image004

This penetrative quality of the mind that learn by entering into, uniting with, and becoming the same as (vibration, sympathetic induction, and coherence), can be easily understood through extended practices of deep concentration on an idea, free from all distractions and the need to “control the idea” with preconceived notions. By thinking about an idea with a singular mind, we resonate with it, enter into it, become the same as it, and learn about it from within it or within us. By “being the same as it” in body, mind, and spirit. By taking on the same quality and consciousness. We perceive it by conceiving of it (allowing it to impregnate us). We understand it from the perspective of being within it or having it within us, by experiencing it through our mind. In this way, all learning as the realization of truth comes as an inner process of concentrated thought which acts as a “receptor”. Our mind has the ability to enter into (sympathize with) ideas, and gain knowledge of them from the inside out. We become one with its consciousness, and understand it by observing its reality from the same mind-set.

So we don’t necessarily meditate to control or stop thinking and blend into a void or nothingness, which is only the initial stage of meditation that frees the mind from random thoughts that distract it, scattering its power to concentrate, but rather as the means for inducing a trance state that removes the conscious mind (talking mind) from its normal state of dominance, rendering it passive and inactive, and making the passive and receptive subconscious (experiential) mind dominant and active instead. Once we calm the sporadic automatic thoughts, creating an empty spaciousness as an open arena, we can introduce an idea into our mind as a kind of seed with hidden potential, and grow it by giving it our full, undivided attention. Through concentration we penetrate it, activate it, become the same as it in mind and body, and gain realization of it by being one with it (within us). We gain “knowledge of it” through the self-realization of being the same as it. Through focused concentration on a single idea for extended periods of time, we know it inside and out, and it becomes a permanent part of us. We incorporate it into our mind (paradigm) as an experience, which becomes memory. Once we form a memory of it as a direct experience of it, it can be recalled and referenced, and exists as an inherent and natural part of us. We only “attain” knowledge, as self-knowledge through exercising the concentrative powers of our mind (will).

By concentrating our attention on an idea, becoming one with it, we become the same as it, vibrate at the same level of consciousness, and readily perceive that same consciousness of the idea in everyone and everything around us. Once we “know and understand” an idea, it’s fully integrated into our paradigm or mental structure, which forms the lens and filtering system that we look through to perceive everything else. Once we know by becoming the same as, forming a memory of it as our soul’s structure, we resonate with that idea, no matter what form it takes on in everything around us. It becomes a natural part of us and helps form our understanding of everything else. Our experiences become memory which inform us by giving us instant interpretations of what appears to be random information (organizes everything into coherent patterns). Once we attain a memory of something, the knowledge in that memory remains apart of us and is instantly recalled and associated as a part of our normal mental processes of perceiving ourselves (the same structures) in everything external to us. Meditation is the method of learning through direct internal experience of the internal nature of the idea itself (soul-to-soul), where we become fixated on, and experience it from within us as an inherent part of us.

The Nature of Personal Illusions and the Minds Ability to Shape Reality

Our Mind is always Generating our Personal Reality . . . .

 While many people have heard of the spiritual concept of Maya, or the mind’s ability to make up false realities that it then “lives out of” as though they’re real, we tend to think that this idea involves mental illness or dysfunction of some sort, yet in fact, this is a natural function of the mind that we all do naturally anytime we’re forming interpretations of something as a way of making them “mean” something. What things “mean” forms the basis for the story we tell ourselves about it as a way of fitting it into our paradigm (it’s a product of our paradigm) in order to create a consistent experience of what we call “reality”. One of the most fundamental errors we make in the general sense of things, is we don’t realize that everyone’s not seeing the same things that we are, and we believe instead that we’re experiencing a universal reality where everyone sees what we see in a person, situation, or event, and is experiencing it the same way we are. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

The illusion begins through how we interpret what is in fact a neutral and objective outer reality that makes it “about us” in some way. We interpret everything as a way of giving it meaning. What something means is what produces the necessary theme or basis for “our story”, and is what allows us to continue telling our story as a consistent theme about everything. The meaning we give random events or other people’s behavior, from the perspective of what we’re telling ourselves about what’s happening, is how we create our personal experience of it. While we don’t have anything to do with the reality going on around us, in terms of actually manifesting or creating it, how we perceive it as an interpretation of it, is completely our personal creation of “reality” as an “experience”. We are the sole creator of our experiences, which often has nothing to do with what’s “actually” going on in a situation.

We all develop what we come to call our “personal issues” out of our primary conditioning. Our conditioning forms “life themes” as dynamic patterns that express a certain type of meaning as a story line that we start telling ourselves about what’s happening, which serves to give us a consistent experience of a vastly dynamic outer, objective reality. Through this story that we tell ourselves as a means of translating the actions and intentions of other people to mean something about us, is a form of illusion that we create and superimpose over the actual reality that transforms it into being of the same nature as we are (it’s formed by our “issue”). We are the “center of our own universe”, experience everything from within our own mind, and in our story about things, everything evolves around us. Because of this tendency, we tend to take everything personally.

eye space

Our story as a theme serves as a template of sorts, and has a self-fulfilling quality to it.  We can shape everything other people do in regards to or around us, or in relationship with us somehow, as being done intentionally “to” us. We imagine their behaviors to be intentionally directed towards us on purpose as the imaginary fulfillment of our story. Someone with the issue of “not being good enough”, for example, can interpret any number of behaviors displayed by others that they’re interacting with as being, once again, about them “not being good enough”. They twist everything in whatever way they need to in order to make it mean what they need it to mean. They can even misinterpret what is clearly complementary or praising, by questioning the motive, or somehow making it condescending, or empty flattery designed to (falsely) try and make them feel good, or make up for previous insults, and so on.

Whatever your issue is forms your primary theme as your perceptual lens and your means of forming consistent interpretations, and determines what you go into every situation expecting, looking for, waiting for, extracting and pointing out, and expounding upon. We only notice in any situation what lends itself to telling our story, and fail to notice anything that doesn’t. We completely ignore anything that contradicts our story, because we honestly can’t perceive it (in the natural sense), and we don’t know how to “tell ourselves” (live by way of) a different type of story. We don’t have a filter for it, and so we don’t recognize it for what it is. Even if somebody points it out as clearly contradicting our perception, we feel somewhat bewildered and confused by it, and will either disregard it, try and explain it away, or argue to defend our story as being right. We can’t conceive of it because it doesn’t fit into our model, and in being willing and able to consider it in its contradictory state, it would introduce doubt, and act to undermine or shatter our story. Because most are not willing to give up their story about things, because they’ve built their identity around it, they choose instead to ignore all contradictory evidence and defend their right to keep telling their story in spite of it.

We not only create our experience of life through our story, but we act on ourselves to shape ourselves by way of our story. Our “theme” evolves out of a series of repeated emotionally intense experiences that, as a child or young adult, we try to make sense out of by what we tell ourselves about them that give them meaning. Meaning creates on three levels simultaneously, the meaning we give things means something about other people and why they’re the way they are, about life and the world in general, and about “us” existing in relationship to it all. When people treat us “as if we’re not good enough” by criticizing us, talking down to us, calling us names, telling us we’re stupid, or being sarcastic and belittling, which we interpret as meaning we’re inferior and not good enough to be loved, admired, or accepted, and we develop an opinion of people and of life as being this way, and we develop an image of ourselves as being inferior, unwanted, and not lovable. This idea becomes a theme as a perceptual filter that we look through to “see”, and only see what matches it. Any neutral or borderline behavior, we simply “reinterpret” to still mean what we need it to mean in order to maintain our self-image. We can live our entire life experiencing everything out of this theme, usually without ever realizing it’s an illusion of our own making, and actually says nothing factual about other people or the way the world is, but rather simply reveals who we are and what delusion we’ve invested our sense of self into.

psychadelic-

Because we build our self-image and identity as a person out of a story that we continuously told ourselves about things that created our experience of them, even when we briefly begin realizing it’s an illusion and not a fact, we can have trouble giving it up, because we don’t know how else to be. We don’t know how to tell a different type of story. The story we tell ourselves becomes a form of self-fulfilling prophecy, and we literally take on and accentuate the qualities and traits that we believe (or were told) “don’t make us good enough”.  Meaning, we act out those behaviors in every aspect of our life, consistently giving people that impression of us. Because we believe our own story, and developed our sense of ourselves out of our story, and became the person in our story, we form a kind of love for it as our own creation, and will argue and defend our right to keep it, assuming others “don’t understand”, which, of course, they don’t. We don’t want to give it up because it’s who we are. What we want instead, is to be able to continue acting the way we are and believing what we’re believing, perceiving the same way, yet have someone or some situation treat us as if we’re good enough, usually without ever realizing that it’s impossible, because we’ll interpret even the best of behavior to mean whatever we need It to mean, or we’ll think they’re lying to us just to try and make us feel good, and usually respond by becoming angry, hurt, or offended.

So the ability of the mind to form personal realities as a delusion is the most common and natural function of the mind, and is something we’re all doing to varying degrees all of the time. The whole goal of spiritual development is learning how to control your mind, let go of your illusions as your “false image”, and realize your true identity and position within the cosmic scheme of things. What we call the “false ego” is the storytelling ability of the mind that runs in an automatic fashion, forming illusions as a child that becomes the “themes of adulthood”, which serve to create all of our experiences as a form of self-creation and self-projection, that’s based solely on a false assumption born out of emotional trauma of some sort that sets the whole process in motion as the reality of that emotion. Emotions are experienced strongly and deeply and use our subconscious mind to express through. Our emotions run our thoughts and create illusions in place of objective reality. Because the emotions are intense and immediate and command our mind by controlling our thoughts, imagination, and perceptual interpretations, we mistake them for being real, and allow them to shape us, and continue “using us” to express through. Most people live their entire life out of a dominant emotional state and a constant form of emotional reaction. Their emotions run them and they often have trouble realizing they’re not “true”, and act only to produce false realities that are very convincing, due to their intensity and the nature of the drama they create, which is very engaging and often addictive.

image004

Once we can learn to see emotions for what they are, strong forms of physical stimulation with whole dramas inherent in them, and we can realize that the stories we started telling ourselves while in the midst of experiencing these emotions, as make-believe ideas that simply expressed the emotion at the time they occurred, and when the emotion passed, we kept telling ourselves that story as a way of keeping the emotion alive, by expressing out of it and giving us more of it. Emotions, which form our body chemistry and alter our state of mind by way of them, just like drugs, are addictive, and once we begin forming realities out of them as a life drama, they become habitual. They shape the patterns of our mind and form our mental perceptions, so that we’re always in the process of seeing more of that same emotion and the reality it naturally produces in everything around us. In this way we keep supplying ourselves with more of the same emotions, feeding our addiction and reinforcing our false beliefs.

If we can learn how to dissociate from our story, move out of being “in the experience” of it, and view it as an outsider watching it play out like a movie, where we’re not the main character, but simply playing one role in a larger story, and release our attachment to our “side” of the story, we can begin gaining a different perspective and see it from a different point of view. When we realize that other people’s behavior has nothing to do with us in the ultimate sense, but is simply a reflection of “who they are”, we can learn not to “take it personal” or internalize everything by going into a whole drama because of what other people do “to us” or “because of us”, and we can ask ourselves what does their behavior say about them? Not us. What’s going on in their life, or what issues do they have that’s causing them to be and do whatever it is they’re doing? If we could see another reason for what’s happening beside the one we give it that makes it “about us”, what would we see? What kind of a person do we become because of our story, and who would we be if we gave up our story? What kind of story would we tell if we were doing it on purpose? With full awareness of “who” and “how” we become by way of the story we live out of. If we could be anybody we wanted to be, who would we choose to be? And what qualities and traits would we need to attain and develop in ourselves in order to live out of a different type of story? What traits would we have to give up or act intentionally to transform (heal) in order to play a different role in our own life?

Once we take a position of reflecting on our own tendencies and realizing what and how we’re doing them, and what it is that triggers them, we can start becoming fully conscious and live our life in a deliberate manner of conscious self-creation. By gaining clarity on what our story is and when or why we began telling it, we can see it for the illusion it actually is, not because it’s “not true” or the events that formed it didn’t happen the way they did, but by realizing that our story is only one story or perspective on the same idea, out of which there are many. We can relive the memory while making a conscious choice to reinterpret it to give it different meaning, and therefore experience it in a different way, and replay it over and over in our imagination the way want it to go instead, and literally neutralize the emotional charge it has for us. Without the emotional charge, we can remain calm and centered in the same situations, and through our calm state, we can “choose” how we want to perceive it and respond as a result. As with all things in life, all psychological and emotional healing comes only through self-realization and awareness. We have to remove our focus from other people, self-reflect and realize our own tendencies. Once we do this, we can begin working on ourselves with full awareness of what we’re doing and why.
