Penetrating the Secret Nature of the Soul and the Four Worlds or Planes of Existence

       Throughout the major Spiritual texts of the world, we’re given higher knowledge in its symbolic form as the universal laws that form the keys to the origins of our Soul and the creation of the universe as a unified whole. The same laws that are used to create us are also used to create all of life. In order to “know” the universe and the meaning of life, all we have to do is look within at the creative nature of our own Soul in terms of laws and principles that are not only used to create us in material form, but also as the means by which the higher, human Soul is always in the process of creating itself by way of material forms.

       This primary process for the creation of all life by the human Soul is symbolically represented in Esoteric Sciences as the 4 Planes or “worlds”. While many of us have been taught that names in spiritual texts refer to actual people or entities, the fact is they’re not a name at all, but rather a verbal, numerical, and geometrical code or formula.Whatever name is being used in reference to “God” (which has 72 names), isn’t referring to a different God or version of God, but rather to the formula as an operation being used in the story as an allegory. The most primary Law of Creation as an encoded operation is represented by the “4 letter name of God”(4 representing the created world) known as IHVH, with the “I” often being exchanged with “Y”.

       These 4 letters are a formula for creating reality that ultimately represent what’s referred to as the “4 Worlds”(in the Kabbalah and Tarot) as planes of existence that describe how an “idea”becomes the metaphorical basis for reality. This four letter name of God corresponds with the four primary Elements that form the basis for producing a material reality out of an idea or thought. Anytime someone is using a “name of God” in reference to what many interpret as meaning a specific Being, usually called “He” (indicating a man-like being), it simply demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of the true Nature of God and their own nature as a Soul that’s bestowed with the higher capacities of the mind needed in order to self-create. The Soul doesn’t exist as a finite being limited to a particular physical body and personality, but exists as more of an “idea” it creates of itself as a form of archetype.

       All symbolic or metaphorical ideas have an infinite number of translations and applications because they have to be “interpreted by the individual” in order to be understood, and we can only use and apply what we have a practical understanding of. Laws themselves only describe metaphorical ideas and the processes as operations that ultimately result in a material manifestation of some kind. All of what we call “creation” comes by taking what exists originally in an archetypal, universal, or symbolic form as an ideal, and drawing it into the mind of the individual Soul where it’s then adapted to the identity and mental paradigm of the Soul, modifying it into a unique form of the same type of idea necessary to apply it to the everyday life and situation of the Soul, modifying it even further. It then results in the manifestation of the same basic type of idea as a unique form and version. Once an archetypal idea is used to create a material form as the reality of that idea, the soul then creates an experience of it and absorbs it back into itself as a memory of itself. Once an idea is transformed into a memory as an experience, it then becomes an inherent part of the Soul’s mind and physical constitution.

       The Soul originates and issues forth from the higher plane of universal archetypes and creates itself as a new and individual archetype that’s of a “unique and diverse nature”. As we borrow an idea from the higher, universal realm of archetypes as the means of creating within the lower, material realm, by producing a personal experience of it, the Soul then “transforms the memory” back into a generalized, universal form,which can then be used as the means for creating numerous other experiences of the same type of idea. The human Soul is eternal and universal in nature, and is formed out of integrated experiences as thematic (universal) ideas that can be readily applied to many different bodies, personalities, conditions,circumstances, and situations to create the same “type of experiences”. All memory exists as a theme that can be used to create through numerous applications as a process of adaptation and modification that produces an infinite number of variations that still hold true to the originating idea.

       The memory of a tree, for example, isn’t retained in the soul as a particular tree, but as a memory of trees in general.The Soul borrows an idea from the universal plane of archetypes as the means of creating a personalized reality and then draws the memory of that specialized idea back up the planes of formation returning it to its universal, archetypal form as the Soul’s memory used to create itself. All material reality is created out of universal concepts as the means of forming an individual expression and is then returned back to a universal memory “within” the Soul where it resides as a form of thematic idea that can be applied and adapted to an infinite number of situations to create in both a unique and universal manner simultaneously. As we create at the personal level we’re also creating at the universal level of mass consciousness shared by all of humanity.

The Hierarchical Structure of the Mind as 4 Levels of Reality

       The 4 planes of existence form a hierarchy of upper and lower planes that move an idea in a purely potential state as an unformed, invisible ideal “down” into a created and visible form where it can be “experienced” as the “self” through the reality of the Soul.These 4 planes are “mental states” of degrees of density that undergo several stages of adaptation and modification to produce the personal reality of the Soul. The highest plane is the World of Archetypes as ideals in their potential form, the next step down is the Creative World as attributes and qualities,then the Formative World of adaptation and modification, and the Material World of Action. The 4 letters in the name of God as IHVH, and the 4 Elements of the natural world correspond to these 4 Worlds as Will, Intelligence, sensation and feelings, and actions or deeds.

       The Archetypal World exists as universal ideas that are unformed and available in a purely potential state, providing the raw, basic idea as a metaphor used to create with. These are the “root notions” inherent in the innermost nature of the Universal Conscious Energy as Primordial Intelligence. Archetypes are the ideas and information used to produce all material manifestations as a cohesive and interrelated reality. The idea of a bed, for example, represents the idea of lying down or sleeping. In the idea of lying down is embodied the “will to lie down”, which forms the root-idea as a concept for making all different types of beds or couches. Out of this one basic idea, an infinite number of variations are produced that serve the purpose of lying down.

         All creation begins with a desire and willful act to create where the Soul chooses an idea, draws that idea down into the next lower plane of the mind, where it proceeds to define it through attributes and qualities that act to form it as a material object for having the experience of lying down. This is the plane of the higher Will that exists in a“potential state”, and is represented by the Element of Fire. In the 4 letter name of God, it represents the first letter of “I”, which is used by the Soul by becoming one with it (drawing it down into the individual mind) in spirit,and using it to produce a reality of itself in material form. Our entire material reality is produced by the Soul which acts as the “medium” and vehicle for producing reality out of universal concepts. As we create a reality of a specific type of idea, we then associate with our creation, forming our identity (“I am”) out of it.

       The second plane is the “Creative World”, where the universal idea is turned into a specialized pattern through the process of adaptation. The idea of lying down becomes the mental pattern for creating some kind of special bed. The Creative Plane contains all the possible patterns for beds that have ever been thought of or created by someone else in the past (memory) or that exists in the present (mass consciousness),but not those that haven’t been thought of yet. This is the mental plane of thought that formulates metaphorical ideas into an actual idea that’s then brought down into the World of Formation to actually be constructed as a material form. Here a new idea for a bed to lie in can be formed as an actual idea that serves as a “personal creation” that’s of a unique nature. This world represents the attributes and qualities that go into producing an actual mental idea as a unique variation of a bed to lie down in. This is the world of fluid plasticity of what we refer to as the “cosmic mind-stuff” or Astral Light that’s shaped by the mind into new patterns. This plane is represented by the Water Element and is the first “H” in the name IHVH.

       The third plane is the Formative World,which is also commonly referred to as the Astral Plane of formation, where the idea as a specialized pattern is formed in the imagination as the internal vision that’s used to produce an actual bed of a unique nature. This is the Plane of constructive powers. Here, all ideas are formed within the mind in order to become a reality. All creative processes begin in the imagination of the individual on this plane. Within this plane as a level of the mind, an idea is firmly formed as an actual reality infused with the life-force of the Soul and takes on vibratory activities as the means for organizing the Elements on the plane of manifestation. This is the plane of action where cosmic patterns are actualized as material forms. This plane forms the “V” in the name IHVH, and is represented by the Element of Air, which results from combining Fire and Water in different degrees, and is associated with “breath” as the life-giving force of all creation. The internal image formed in the imagination casts an idea into the Astral Light where it forms the etheric body as the thematic blueprint for producing as a tangible form. All material forms are created by how an invisible field of organized information reflects light.

      The4th World is the Material World of Action as the plane of “actual manifestation” of the mind that we experience with our senses and produces an outer experience that’s equivalent to the inner idea used to create it. Here the idea of a bed and lying down provide the pattern as a specialized version that’s produced as the actual bed itself, which we then lie down in to create an experience of willed action. This is the basic creative process that the Soul uses to create reality and itself by way of that reality. The Soul uses its willpower to “borrow ideas” from the cosmic plane in order to create in what seems like a unique way. This plane forms the second “H” in the name IHVH as the manifestation of the higher Will (attributes and qualities that form the characteristics and functions of material shapes). It’s represented by the Earth Element as a solid and tangible object that can be utilized for creating the experience of lying down. The Air and Earth Element are different densities of the same idea produced by a combination of the Fire and Water Element, where one is the emanation of the other.

The 4 Laws of Creation

       These 4 Worlds reveal and describe the 4primary Laws of Creation as interlaced planes of reality. They provide us with the laws used to create our material reality of sensory experience. The Soul isa part of every plane and is the “medium” through which the higher consciousness can be made manifest on the lower plane as an actual reality that’s used by the Soul to produce an “experience” of Itself. The Individual Soul,which is the medium of the Astral Plane, has the creative mental capacities for manifesting reality by ensouling cosmic ideas, shaping them “within it”, giving them life and producing them as a natural part of reality. Ideas of a universal and pure nature as an “ideal”, come “through the Soul” where they’re differentiated into a material manifestation of a particular type and kind.Ideas exist as a form of “seed” or germ that’s drawn into the Soul,impregnating it, where it develops it into a material form and births it as an outer reality that’s a combination of both a universal and personal idea. We conceive of ideas by incorporating them into our mental paradigm where they become an inherent part of our outer reality as our ability to “perceive them”. 

       The Higher Soul not only acts to produce itself as a sensory reality, but also creates the archetypal matrix of the entire lower plane of what we perceive as material reality. All reality is“formed by our perception of it”, and doesn’t exist as an independent entity that’s separate and apart from us. This fact is what forms the basis for all reality being considered an “illusion of the mind” that arises out of the fact that we lose our memory of “who we are” and how we’re actually the one creating our reality based on what ideas we choose to embody that serve as the basis for self-expression. As we draw ideas into our mind and transform them into a personalized reality, they become a natural part of our inner nature and form the basis for producing a corresponding outer reality that we then use as the means for creating ourselves in a unique manner.

The Lower Soul of Material Form

      Once the Soul creates itself and its world out of a universal form based on what archetypal ideas and qualities it acts to naturally absorb and use to form its internal nature, it then gets lost in the vividness and apparent solidity of its own creation and doesn’t realize how it’s being created or the fact that it’s the one creating it. The lower soul of the animal body only serves as an “empty shell” and passive medium for the higher Soul, and doesn’t have the ability to self-create by “drawing down”and acting as a vehicle for higher consciousness. It lacks the ability to self-create in a willful manner, and instead becomes subject to the will of others and society and only serves to absorb the ideas given to it by others as the means of “becoming”. By way of the same principles that govern the higher mind,we either draw on the ideas of a cosmic and truly original nature, or we allow others to plant ideas in our mind where we develop them into realities as our personal creation. When we shape ourselves according to the ideas of others or what we’ve been told to believe and accepted as true, we become a product of our own illusion and lend our will to actualize ourselves to be of the same nature as the ones serving to program us.

       The material plane exists as a unification of all the ideas we’ve acted to absorb, take into our mind and allow to take hold by imagining them as an experience, giving them life to by continuing to think about them where they become an inherent part of our mental paradigm and perceptual lens. Whatever we incorporate into our mental paradigm through our ability to reasonably comprehend it forms a belief that becomes a natural part of our outer reality. The material world is always being created by us through either an unconscious or conscious state. In the most basic sense all of what we experience as reality is formed through our perception of it.

       By gaining awareness of the laws governing the mind and Soul in its creation of itself as an entire reality, we can begin creating ourselves in a much more intentional and purposeful manner.We can withdraw from the unconscious process of becoming one with the group mind of already created ideas, and begin drawing on the higher, divine planes of original ideas and create ourselves in a deliberate and precise manner by becoming one with “the gods” of antiquity. Our true place as Higher Souls in the grand scheme of things is to become a sovereign Soul and exercise our power of choice and will by forming a desire to become one with the gods and work directly on our Self via masterful use of the Universal Laws that govern our own mind and all of creation through a single and continuous act.

Gaining a Practical Understanding of the Principles involved for our Soul to Transcend the Material Plane

       This idea can be difficult to fully grasp in practical terms because it’s very esoteric in the sense that it requires a true shift in awareness in order to be able to employ intentionally.It requires an in-depth understanding of the Universal Laws involved along with a realization of the “true nature” of the very “reality” we’re looking to transcend.It’s not about looking around at all the ideas that are out there regarding the idea of ascending, but rather gaining a comprehensive understanding of the laws involved to the point where you can come up with your own ideas and processes for intelligently developing your consciousness in an individual manner. All growth and development only comes by way of intentional action, disciplined effort, and constant striving. There’s no such thing as an “easy path” to higher domains, and all true creation requires deliberate use of choice and will in creating ourselves as an “individual” rather than buying into the “group mind” of always looking for someone else’s ideas that we can accept and use as our own.

       The most fundamental difference of what we think of as “higher and lower consciousness” comes through the realization of what it actually means to either be a product of what you’ve been taught by others and therefore not consciously utilizing your ability to reason and make your own decisions as the means for forming your actions, which is what serves to “demonstrate” your “actual” level of consciousness. In the lower plane of an“animal existence”, which is primarily unconscious in nature, we buy into the group mind of consensus and regulations, where opinion is mistaken for fact,and we lack autonomy and a sovereign will. All the knowledge and instructions necessary for creating comes as a thorough understanding of laws and the practice necessary for applying them in your daily life as the means of “creating yourself”.

       We only ascend or descend and “move between planes of existence” through Universal Laws as the consciousness we employ and develop within a given plane. There are many planes that are dynamically interlaced and work together to form what we perceive as a “single plane” that has higher and lower regions as levels of consciousness that naturally exists as an inherent part of that plane. Many people fail to comprehend that what we call the material plane is produced and maintained “by” our consciousness which is an aspect of the Universal Consciousness and does not exist independent of us.

The Singularity

        The entire material plane that we appear to be sharing in common with others is produced as a projection of our own individual mind that’s a part of a larger group mind, and every element of our reality is the embodiment and expression of an “aspect” of ourselves. This idea follows the same principle as our “nightly dreams” which are produced solely by our “unconscious mind” as fully embellished sensory realities. Our nightly dreams are composed of many different people as “characters” that are all playing a role in creating a coherent idea as a reality and experience of the idea. Just as we can interpret the meaning of our dreams by embodying and becoming each person or object within the dream being used to illustrate it, we can also see each person or thing in our waking reality the same way, because they’re all aspects of ourselves necessary to play out a greater story as the means of producing an experience of hidden or unconscious aspects of ourselves.

       What we perceive as the “outer reality”is produced by our mind in the same way the reality of our night dreams are. Both the inner and outer reality exist as what we can call “dream states” that express and reveal to us the “full content” of our mind and soul as both conscious(aware) and unconscious (unaware) aspects. All dreams and visions as a certain “type of reality” are formed out of different mental states. All of what we perceive as being “out there”, disguised as someone or something else (separate from us), is a symbolic or metaphorical representation of unknown or hidden aspects of ourselves that are necessary in order to act out an idea, providing us with the means for gaining self-awareness from it. Just as we contrast and conflict with other people, we have internal aspects of ourselves that also act to oppose each other causing internal conflict and struggle as a form of ongoing argument and debate with “ourselves”.

       What we call “aspects” of ourselves (notice this is always plural)exist as attributes and qualities that form unique characteristics as a form of personality, or what we can think of as a sub-personality. Each sub-personality as aspects of our Self has its own unique perspective, motives, and purposes that are projected outward (meaning we perceive through them), forming our perception of others as being of the “same nature” as we are. We form outer experiences of the same type of things that exist within us. The same conflicts we experience internally are acted out by others externally. What we perceive as the inner and outer are both a part of the same space-time continuum as different mental states that make up what we call a “plane of existence” that’s cohesive and consistent in nature.

        We have two primary aspects of our mind that makeup what we call the “material mind”, one of which is unconscious and experienced as our inner or body-oriented mind, and the other one is self-conscious and experienced as our outer awareness. These two aspects of the same mind exist in polarity to each other, and when one is active the other one is passive in terms of “awareness”. We remain largely unaware of our night dreams because they’re created by our unconscious mind while our self-aware mind is sleeping. Once we wake-up and our self-conscious mind becomes active and dominant, we enter into a different type of dream state that’s based on an outer dream. Yet both the inner and outer reality is produced by the same mind while in different states(Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and Gamma), also referred to as brain-waves. As we move from one state to another, we shift dimensions (from inner to outer) and forget the reality of the previous state. This is why we forget our night dreams and visions we have while meditating as soon as we come into an alert Beta state.

       All debates over controversial ideas that we enter into with others, are really the outward extension and enactment of an equivalent inner debate we’re having with ourselves, as a conflict between “known and unknown” parts of ourselves. This is what creates the false illusion of duality as the inner reality being separate from the outer reality,both of which are produced by the “same mind”. This idea is expressed through sayings like “judge not lest ye be judged”, and “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, and the idea that whatever we put out we get back, and that all outer perception is a fundamental form of self-perception. These ideas offer us insight into the true nature of reality that if we contemplate with an empty and silent mind, putting all beliefs and existing ideas aside, reveals the laws that make-up the true nature of reality.

       As long as we form a belief around the general idea being played out as mass reality that appears to be separate from us, we unconsciously participate in co-creating it as what seems like a joint-experience. Once created as what seems like an outer reality, we then fully cooperate in maintaining it out of an unconscious state. We then use the projections of our own mind as a detached reality as the means of creating ourselves out of it. Whatever plane we’re a cohesive part of in terms of self-awareness, acts to “bond us” energetically to that plane of existence. In the lower plane of material reality we act on ourselves to create ourselves out of a primarily unconscious state, and become identified with an illusion of our own making. In order to ascend this plane,so to speak, we have to bring what’s operating in our life at an unconscious level into conscious awareness where we become “fully conscious” as our normal state.

        Our material reality and everything in it is not the end goal or objective of the soul (who’s creating it as an illusion of itself) and only provides the means as a kind of “stage” for the Soul to play out the reality naturally produced by its mind as the means of expressing in order to gain self-realization, and use that knowledge as the basis for fashioning itself to “be” of a certain nature.There’s no such thing as believing one thing and doing another, no matter how we justify it to ourselves. All of our actions are the demonstration of our true level of consciousness, and serve to define us in the most practical sense.The idea that we can somehow “love another” without first “loving ourselves” is absurd in the most basic sense of the idea, because ultimately they’re both the same thing. If we love another it means we love that same aspect as qualities and “type of person” in ourselves. What we perceive as another, like the characters in our nightly dreams, are merely aspects of ourselves playing apart in a much larger drama.

Self-Reflection as the means of Self-Realization

       What we experience as the outer reality is created at the fundamental level by both conscious and unconscious aspects of ourselves. Whatever seems normal and doesn’t cause a “reaction in us” as a form of judgment of some kind, are the aspects that we’re aware of and fully accept and embrace as being a part of us. In a like manner, whatever we don’t recognize as being “us”, causes an emotional reaction as a form of judgment. Because we’re unaware of it, we don’t realize we’re the one creating it, and we imagine that it’s someone or something that taking place outside of us and has nothing to do with us. We then create the “illusion” of entering into relationship with unknown aspects of ourselves in order to act out dramas together that form a continuation of internal dramas of the same nature and kind.

       This is what’s meant by the idea that you’re already “whole” and don’t need someone or something that exists outside of you in order to “complete you”. What we look for in another already exists within us, we just don’t realize it because we haven’t become aware of that part of ourselves, and instead perceive it as being missing. This idea is illustrated in the most primary law represented by the Monad where the self and the outer world as a “sphere of consciousness” are an expansion and extension of the same mind and idea; and in the Law of the Dyad or Vesica Pisces (called the womb of reality), which is produced as the regeneration and projection of the Monad to create the “illusion” of the Self as another. These two primary laws reveal the true nature of reality where the outer world is created as corresponding reflection and projection of the inner world. Where we’re always entering into relationship with ourselves (same consciousness) in everything around us, and creating a joint reality as an “experience of our self in another”. The illusion of separation from our self is necessary in order to create an experience our self.

The Illusion of Duality and the Birth of the Ego and Shadow

       The Soul creates the outer, material world by dividing itself into both conscious (masculine) and unconscious (feminine)aspects or parts. This occurs naturally in childhood when we’re taught to judge ourselves in the same way we were judged by others. As we judge ourselves to be good or bad, a division takes place where we reject, repress all the parts of our nature that we deem bad or wrong. As we judge and reject parts of ourselves, we deny having them (even to ourselves) and refuse to express them,and suppress them instead, eventually losing memory of them because we don’t create memories where we’re being that way. As we condemn and deny some parts,we simultaneously compare and contrast them with what we’ve also judged as being good aspects of an opposing nature, that are the opposite of the bad ones, and we accept and embrace them by expressing them, and as a result, build an “image of ourselves” out of only acceptable parts.

       Through the process of self-judgment we form two aspects of our nature that exist in direct opposition to each other.We birth what we call our “shadow and ego” through opposing ends of the same act. Our shadow we deny having and ultimately forget about, and our ego is formed out of only the good and desirable parts of us that we openly and freely express outwardly to create our experiences of ourselves as being good, right,desired, loved, admired, and so on. Yet all of the denied and forgotten aspects still exist and are alive within us in an active and creative state, and form an inherent part of our outer environment and our perception of others and the world in general. Because we forgot we had them, we don’t recognize them as being a part of us (our mind), and we judge others who are outwardly expressing those traits in the same way we judged ourselves, and we make them out to be “bad people” in some way.

       As we create a “false image” of ourselves that’s only fashioned out of acceptable parts, we stay locked into an illusion of our own making. While we say that the ego is created by building an image of ourselves out of only material ideas, we can state it more accurately by saying that we create an idea of ourselves out of only part of our nature,and exist in a fragmented (separated) state as a result. We act to maintain only a partial awareness of our true nature, and build our identity out of an illusion we’ve created of ourselves instead. Our material reality, in the ultimate sense, is an illusion created by our “whole mind” of both conscious and unconscious material, and provides us with the means for recognizing unconscious aspects of ourselves being projected onto others. Once we realize this we can become aware that the outer world and others are merely reflecting back to us unknown aspects of our self, and anytime we’re judging and reacting to someone or something, we can turn inward and self-reflect instead, and gain new forms of self-awareness.

       Because the shadow and ego oppose each other, meaning one can’t exist without the other, by becoming aware of our shadow nature, and integrating it into “acceptable aspects of ourselves” we act to simultaneously undermine and transform our ego through the conscious incorporation of rejected parts. This results in what we experience as a form of “death” (of our false image), and therefore causes the ego to retaliate and defend itself by working consciously to maintain the shadow, and thereby sustaining the illusion its created of itself as being a certain type of person.

        This is why all “true healing” is centered on dissolving judgment and forgiving others who we’ve imagined were hurting or harming us in some way. This is the basis for the true reality of the fact that all judgment of others is really a judgment we hold against ourselves. That what we perceive as being “done to us by another” is actually something we’re doing to ourselves and comes by way of projecting unconscious aspects of ourselves onto others. We judge others in the same way we judge ourselves, and once we understand this, we can see it for the psychological tool it offers as the means for recognizing aspects of ourselves that remain hidden from us.

       By recognizing the laws involved for producing reality, we can realize that anytime we’re having an adverse reaction as a strong judgment against another that it’s really providing us with a mirror into our own unconscious content.With deep self-reflection we can gain awareness and insight around how we “acted on ourselves” to fragment and divide ourselves in order to produce an illusion based on partial aspects that serve to create a “false illusion” as our perception of ourselves. Because what we call higher planes are “whole and unified in nature”, we can only ascend into them once freed from the body of illusion, by acting on ourselves to heal and return ourselves to a “whole state of Being”that no longer creates itself out of an illusion. Even though we deny parts of ourselves and lack awareness of them, they’re still an inherent and active part of our nature and continue creating our reality. In order to partake in the reality of higher planes we have to fully utilize our ability to create ourselves and our life from a fully conscious state.

Personal Transformation and a Return to Wholeness

       For this reason, the whole basis of ascension to higher, unified realms of existence is based on the practice of Alchemy as Personal Transformation from a partial state to a whole state. This is the Law as realization that we possess the higher powers of self-awareness that enables us to “act on ourselves to transform ourselves” back into a whole,and therefore “pure” state. The most natural way we heal, restore balance, and transform is by bringing what’s creating our reality in an unconscious manner into conscious awareness, where by owning and embracing it, we integrate it back into our Self and our identity. Once we realize the judgments we’ve placed on ourselves that kept us unconscious and living in the shadow of our own life,and integrate them to form a new whole, we’re capable of ascending to a higher state where wholeness and unity is the very foundation out of which “reality”is created as a natural expression and projection of a fully conscious and self-aware state.

       Once we heal all the fragmented and broken parts of our Self, bringing them back into a whole and harmonious state,and no longer pass judgment on our Self in others, our experience of outer reality changes accordingly. We can only ascend to a unified state by creating it while in the lower material plane of duality. As long as we continue to perceive ourselves out of a partial awareness of our own nature, we will remain in this plane, which is providing us with the means to recognize our true nature and fully embrace it in a congruent way. The material world simply provides us with the means of creating as a form of self-expression that shows us the content of our whole mind, giving us the tools as Laws for perfecting ourselves by healing unconscious aspects of our own inner nature that’s acting to produce our perception of what appears to be an “outer world” that’s separate from our own mind.

Waking up and becoming Self-Aware within the Dream

       The idea of “waking up” in your own life is the full realization that you’re actually the one creating it. All of it. In the ultimate sense there is no duality and nothing exists apart from our perception of it. Things are only the way they are because we make them out to be that way by how we create our experiences of them. Things only mean what we make them mean. As we perceive and judge another, we’re perceiving and judging ourselves “in and through them”. What we imagine to be outside of us is the expression and projection of what’s inside of us. Whatever we’re doing to another, we’re actually doing to ourselves. We’re always on both the giving and receiving end of the same judgments and illusions. This forms the basis for the eternal and Absolute Law of Karma. We always suffer the consequences of our own actions, because in fact, there’s only one of us.

       We’re given the Laws that reveal the true nature of reality as a product of our mind in what’s represented as Sacred Geometry as the Tetrad, and in Spiritual (Esoteric) Sciences as the Tetragrammaton as the “four letter name of God” as IHVH (or YHVH). The Tetrad is formed out of the Monad as the Self and outer reality of the Mind, that “regenerates itself” by separating and projecting itself to create the illusion of another (Dyad), then enters into relationship with itself as another, forming an inner reality in the imagination (Triad) that’s then reflected downward and outward,forming the basis for the outer material world, represented by the Tetrad. What we perceive as a series or group of Laws, are actually produced by the One primal Law of the Mind (mentation). Both the inner (triad) and outer (mirror image of the Triad) are produced by the same mind as its constitution,represented by a square or cube. The Mind (5th Element) acts to organize and structure the Four Elements of the material plane into a “reality”that’s actually “imaginary in nature” and can be altered or transformed by first altering and transforming the Mind that’s producing it as a perception of Itself.

       What we refer to as the Ten Primary Laws of Creation, or Seven Principles of Hermetic Sciences are the fundamental Laws of the Mind that act to produce what we experience as the “reality of the material plane”. These Laws provide us with not only a description of the true Nature of reality, but also “instructions” for how to use our own mind in order to create reality, and simultaneously create our Self by way of that reality.Laws are the creative and operative forces that govern all reality as the creative processes of the Mind and provide us with the means for self-realization and the means for acting on ourselves to transform ourselves.We know when our inner world has been transformed by how it changes our perception of the outer world and how we experience it, because they’re a direct and opposite reflection of each other. Once we truly relinquish judgment of ourselves in others, we’re able to experience compassion where we can become one with another and see life from their perspective without judging them as being good or bad, or right and wrong, and simultaneously return our Soul back to a state of wholeness and purity.

The Intuitive Art of Interpreting Dreams

What we experience as dreams, whether nightly as we sleep, or as a form of daydream or internal vision as an intuitive mental impression, are formed naturally out of our subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind is both primitive and instinctual, and universal and intuitive in nature. Unlike the self-conscious aspect of the mind which “thinks” in abstract terms with words as internal dialogue that is primarily logical in nature and follows a linear timeline, the subconscious “thinks” in pictures, images, and as symbolic-thematic realities. It’s “experiential” in nature and forms ideas as experiences of reality that are universal in nature as being comprised of symbolism that lacks a logical transition from one scene to another, and serves to form an overall theme as the idea being conveyed through the nature of the dream.

The details of the dream are not as important as the overall idea being played out, although it does provide us with important features and instructions in regards to the tendency it’s illustrating and the principles involved that provide us with the tools necessary for working with it in a conscious fashion. The language of dreams is the same symbolic language used to illustrate spiritual ideas, and only has meaning in terms of how it’s intuitively interpreted by the person having the dream. Your dreams can only accurately be interpreted by you. No one else can interpret your dreams for you. Books that are currently on the market for forming a generic interpretation of “dream symbols” are useless, and simply train you further to the prevalent mindset of having someone else tell you what’s in your own psyche. If you currently have some of these books, throw them away, because they won’t provide you with anything that’s meaningful, and in reality only act to prevent you from developing your own intuitive abilities.

       The “language of dreams” is primarily communicated through the “feelings” you get from the experience of the dream. How you feel “in the experience you’re having” is the main message and most important feature of the dream. The subconscious mind thinks by forming experiences of reality that elicit distinct emotions in response to them that produce what you could think of as natural and automatic behaviors that express the emotions being elicited through the nature of the experience. Intuition comes naturally by embodying the “feeling sensation” of an idea as a direct experience that allows mental impressions to naturally form as a “chain of association”. An image or series of ideas as the elements being used to compose the dream are only meaningful in terms of the feeling they give you and how they connect to other ideas of a similar nature in a synchronized fashion.

The subconscious is the aspect of our mind that’s intuitive in nature and lacks the ability to logically rationalize an idea in abstract terms. All ideas come to it and are played out as a direct experience that elicits an emotional reaction that compels automatic behavior as a dynamic of some form. The dynamic being played out in the dream as a pattern of the overall idea forms a “theme”. The theme of our nightly dream directly correlates with a pattern as a dynamic of some form being lived and played out in our waking state at an unconscious level. Our dreams show us the “contents” of our subconscious mind that we’re not fully aware of that are governing our primary experiences of living through our waking state.

When we’re awake, our self-conscious mind of outer awareness (brain consciousness) becomes the dominant aspect of the mind that’s creating our experience of reality, and our subconscious mind fades into the background where it’s only experienced as feelings, emotions, and intuitive notions. Yet the subconscious is what’s still forming the very basis for our “outer reality” as our perception based on memories, conditioning, and the story that we’re always in the process of telling ourselves as a kind of “theme” that we use to form the basic nature of all our experiences. What we call reality is only “known” through our “perception of it” as an experience that’s a combination of both the known and unknown contents of our own mind. So the reality of our nightly dreams is an inherent component of the reality we experience as our waking state. When we go to sleep our self-conscious mind becomes inactive, and our entire experience of life and reality is formed out of our subconscious mind. While the nature of the reality changes in terms of the language being used to construct it, the basic theme being played out as dynamics remains consistent, because they’re both being created by the same aspect of the mind.

Gaining Insight into our Emotional Nature

The most primary way the subconscious governs and acts to produce the behavioral dynamics being played out during our waking state is through our emotions. Our formative conditioning is formed by emotional states we were trained to that formed behavioral dynamics that became the basis for all our memories. These emotional memories act to form the template as a generalized theme that we continue using throughout our life for creating all of experiences to be of a consistent nature by how we interpret them to give them meaning. Regardless of what we repress in ourselves, and thereby act to “forget” or deny having (even to ourselves), the repressed content remains active and alive inside of us as a key component and theme that forms all of our perceptions, natural behaviors, and general experience of life. This internal content that we’re primarily unaware of or deny having, is played out in our nightly dreams as the expression of emotions we can’t find an appropriate expression for in our waking life.

It’s pretty easy to recognize that our dreams give us similar feelings to what we’re experiencing in a daily life, just in different terms. Our dreams produce a “direct experience” that has a strong emotion associated with it. While the elements being used in the dream may seem completely unrelated to our waking life, the feeling and emotion they produce are the same. Our feelings and emotions are what acted as the perceptual filter for interpreting the events of our life to form our memories of them. We don’t form a memory of the events themselves as exact details, but as the story we told ourselves about them that gave them meaning. When we replay the memories, we live them as an “experience” of them that produces the same emotion and tells the same type of story as a theme that we tell ourselves “about” what happened. We’re conditioned (form our unconscious content) through a dynamic series of memories all born out of the same basic emotional states and behavioral dynamics being played out by our family and the environment we were raised in. The subconscious produces these same “type of realities” in our nightly dreams that serve to reveal to us what ideas are alive in us and operating in our life at the unconscious level.

       We can learn how to see our own unconscious tendencies as thematic patterns and habitual emotional states by interpreting our nightly dreams. They’re illustrated in very direct terms as symbolic ideas that are somewhat “blunt” and “obvious” in nature as a dynamic or thematic pattern that has formed a “tendency in us”. This tendency, though covered over in our waking life with an illusion that serves to deny and repress it by telling a different story about it, is playing out subliminally through our feelings and emotions and what group of memories they keep us tied into and creating out of as a result. By paying attention to the themes being played out in our dreams and what they seem to be about in terms of how they make us feel, we can gain very clear insight into our own subconscious mind.

All of us form life themes based on our conditioning and how we tried to make sense of things that were happening to us and all around us. Most of these themes involve ideas like not being loved and wanted, not being good enough, not being smart or good looking enough, being a bad person, stupid, and so on, based on what we were told or how we felt because of the nature of our experiences. Certain ideas become consistent due to the dynamics we were conditioned with, and they form into a “life theme” that provides the basis for how we interpret the behavior of others and events of our life to consistently tell the same type of story. The story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves internally creates many of our fears and insecurities, and what we often call our “issues and complexes”, and because we can’t always find ways to express these feelings in our waking life, we play them out in our dreaming life in the symbolic language of the subconscious. This is allowing us to see what our repressed emotions and feelings about ourselves are, but of course we have to realize that that’s what they’re showing us in order to actually benefit from it.

Receiving Higher Guidance through Dreams

The subconscious aspect of the mind is what we call the “passive aspect” that doesn’t have the ability to create “illusions” as a story we make up about stuff to give it meaning, and only acts as a “receptor” for ideas given to it from an “active” aspect of the mind, which it forms internally as a memory. It translates an idea into an “internal reality” that becomes the perceptual lens and mental paradigm as a template for producing a similar outer reality that’s of the same nature. There are multiple active aspects of the same mind that operate on multiple planes simultaneously. On the material plane of the individual mind located within a body, the active component is the complementary opposite of the self-conscious mind, whereas on the higher plane of the universal mind, the active component is of the “Higher Self” or human Soul. In order for the subconscious to act as a receiver for higher knowledge as self-awareness, the active component of the self-conscious mind has to be made inactive and passive. This happens naturally at night when we go to sleep.

The Higher mind can seed the subconscious with ideas as imagined realities that act to form the theme of our nightly dreams. These dreams can be recognized because they not only reveal something to us that we’re not aware of that’s actively creating in our life, but they also give us “instruction” as to possible solutions, or reveal new forms of information that provide us with the awareness necessary for making new and better decisions. These instructions are usually conveyed in the universal language of symbols that don’t have a strong emotion associated with them, although they do have a strong feeling of infinity, and are designed to provide us with creative processes when properly understood.

Spiritual guidance always comes as a form of heightened awareness around what we’re presently unaware of that allow for new insights that expand and broaden our ability to create new experiences by breaking the habitual patterns that are governing our life. In these dreams we gain a clear sense of a tendency we have that’s somewhat eluding us and we’re shown what areas to look at or investigate further in order to use universal laws for transforming our existing conditions and experiences. Like all true “spiritual guidance” they never come as “telling us what to do” or “making decisions for us”, but rather as expanding our awareness and providing us with tools for creating that require use of choice and free will in order to actively embrace and pursue.

The Nature of Karma as the Souls Memory

This process of the active component of the mind serving to program the passive component is the same way karma is played out as a form of universal justice that’s delivered in an unbiased way from a higher plane of consciousness. The subconscious uses memory as an “experience of reality” formed internally as the means for creating a similar outer reality of the same nature as a life-theme. Our inner, nightly dreams are a direct correlation and correspondence to our waking dreams as the perception of that same idea being played out externally as a group. It comes to us in exactly the same way “instinct” does and acts to “inform” us and our outer reality with the same metaphor as a memory. Karma exists as the content of our soul and ancestral memories that together form the basis for our subconscious memory in our current life. This memory plays out faithfully to create both our “self” and our experience of reality as a thematic pattern.

The only way to break karma is by becoming self-aware and realizing our own tendencies as our unconscious conditioning. Our nightly dreams provide us with the most obvious means of doing this because they show us in thematic terms what’s operating in us without our direct awareness. In order to use our creative ability of choice and free will, we have to become aware of what’s operating in our life that we’re currently unaware of. Through the realization, we can begin seeing the pattern clearly and the emotions associated with it, and form new realizations that allow us to freely make new decisions that we then act out intentionally that serve to break old patterns.

Programming our Dreams with Intention

Once we become aware of the fact that our subconscious is the “passive medium” through which we connect with and freely communicate with our Higher Self, we can use it to both send and receive information. By setting an intention for our dreams, we give the subconscious a directive while also sending a request to our higher conscious for more information regarding something. We use the active (conscious) component of both our lower and higher mind to communicate with each other through the passive (unconscious) component that they both share. This principle is illustrated in the saying “ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you”.

When we set an intention for our dreams, we “ask for and receive” information from our higher level of awareness. As we receive information, it’s not only “reflected in the imagination of the subconscious” as a dream that our self-conscious can then witness and become aware of, but it also acts to “seed the subconscious” with the “reality of that idea”. The information from our Higher-Self comes “into” the subconscious as a form of memory or picture of the desired reality that provides it with a program as a theme for creating as an outer experience.  Both aspects of us act as the receiver, one directly and one indirectly through the reflection of it in the mind’s eye, which is what forms that idea as a unified inner and outer reality.

When we can’t remember the details of our dreams, we can still receive the information obtained through them as signs, messages, coincidences and intuitive impressions that we form in our outer, awake reality. These come as an intuitive association that’s made to the intention we set as being of the same nature or idea. As we set an intention for creating, we simultaneously program our own subconscious to scan the environment and bring to our attention any information that may be pertinent to the idea. The brain has a mechanism called the “reticular activating system” that acts to direct our attention to things in our environment that’s programmed through “questions and wondering about something”. As we ask a question we tune ourselves to the answer in everything around us.

How Thoughts Program our Dreams

In a similar manner, our own self-conscious mind, which is the aspect that “thinks by talking” as internal dialogue, is always acting to program our subconscious with the reality of our thoughts. Whatever it is that we’re thinking about before and as we fall asleep at night, forms the basis for what we continue to dream about. The time period between our waking and sleeping state as a transition from a conscious to unconscious state, is the most natural form of “hypnosis” we all engage in, usually without realizing it. Our self-conscious, talking mind is always acting to produce the reality of our thoughts in the imagination where they act as an “experiential command” or form of “virtual memory” for programming the subconscious with the reality of our thoughts. What we’re thinking about as we fall asleep at night is very important because we take it with us into our dreams where we continue creating it as an experience of reality that sets the basis for also experiencing in a corresponding manner as an actual experience of outer reality.

Understanding and Interpreting Symbols

Every aspect of our dreams is a personification of an aspect of our self. This is very easy to understand when we realize that it’s our mind, and only our mind that’s forming the entire reality of the dream. Symbolic elements are used based on what they mean to us, and what type of feeling we derive from them, as well as what aspect of our self is being expressed through them. Just as the soul expresses through the physical body, it expresses through numerous other forms in the same fashion. The meaning we give an idea, what feeling it gives us in response and relationship with it, and what it represents to us as a theme or general idea, forms the natural interpretation of the symbolic nature of our dreams.

A spider, for example, may produce a feeling of fear in one person while producing a feeling of curiosity and intrigue in another. Not everyone is afraid of spiders, and some people actually love them. The idea of being naked can mean many things based on the context it’s being used in, such as vulnerability, shame, freedom and innocence, sensuality, sexual arousal, and so on. There’s no such thing as a generic meaning for an idea that applies to everyone. The same idea used in different ways and in different relationship with other ideas as they appear in different dreams can even mean different things to the same person. All ideas, no matter what their nature, are only designed to create a feeling sensation as an “inner experience”. The most basic way of interpreting a dream is by noticing what feeling it gave you, what emotional reaction you formed out of what was happening, and what the overall idea being played out was as a theme or metaphor. Then, relating that same feeling idea to your waking life as a corresponding or associated idea.

All of the attributes and qualities of the imagery are also important because it enhances the idea being conveyed in a detailed manner. So colors, textures, sizes, condition, sounds, behaviors, geometric shapes, and numbers are also communicating in-depth information about the nature of the theme being played out and why you feel the way you do about it. The greater your knowledge is of symbolic imagery is in your waking life (numbers, principles, geometry, colors as qualities and states, animals as personality with behaviors, etc.), the more they will be used in your dreaming life as the means of communicating an idea. If you’re unaware of the nature of symbolic imagery in terms of conscious states and properties, then your dreams seem nonsensical, random, and don’t make much sense to you. If you don’t realize that your dreams are an active part of your psyche that’s showing you the hidden contents of your own mind, then you may not remember your dreams on a regular basis, or forget them as soon as you wake and start moving around.

How to Remember your Dreams

The first step to remembering your dreams is to set the intention to do so before you go to sleep. Make sure you get at least seven to nine hours of sleep. Most dreaming takes place in the last few hours, and when you wake after several hours of sound sleep, your dream is still fresh and vivid with details. If you doze in and out, you often go from one dream to another and can remember several dreams. Your “state” changes with body posture and activity, and as you start moving around, you steadily change your state and begin forgetting your dream. As you wake up, stay in the same position with your eyes closed, and mentally recap your dream in as much as you can remember, or by going over the highlights several times before you actually get up. As soon as you get up take a few minutes to write down the basic idea and theme of your dream, and sketch out any symbols or visual patterns that had significance also. If you have time, journal about the dream in order to allow more and more significance to emerge and associations to the same ideas in your waking life. Make a special note of how you felt, and any emotions that you experienced. Try and identify the “pattern as a theme” of the overall idea played out in symbolic terms. As you identify the basic elements, feelings and emotions, allow yourself to make any form of intuitive associations to the patterns being lived out in your waking life.

Sacred Geometry – The Tetrad and the Universal Law of Creation

All spiritual knowledge exists as laws, and Sacred Geometry is the symbolic language that’s used to illustrate and communicate these laws. Universal laws are the invisible forces and primordial intelligence of the natural world that operate as “processes” that organize and animate the physical forms that make up the “reality” of the material world. These laws are not the forms themselves as such, but the energetic intelligence that forms the holographic substrata (astral matrix) that gives rise to the phenomena of the gross realm of creation. The Tetrad or Tetragrammaton, represents the material form that’s created by organizing the four elements of the material world that are directed and shaped by the higher capacities of the mind. When we learn how to properly interpret the laws represented by the Tetrad, we find that it provides us with “basic instructions” as the creative process necessary for creating our self and our reality.

All Universal Laws operate as a process of growth and development where one law systematically emerges out of the active expression of the one that precedes it. As one unfolds it lays the foundation necessary for the next one to spontaneously unfold as a natural sequence. All laws are represented by a series of correspondences that not only have geometrical shapes associated with them, but also numbers, letters, colors, archetypal forms, sounds, qualities, characteristics, and cohesive ideas that are inherent in certain “psychological states”. Our state of mind or “soul’s mood” is the vibratory frequency that contains both a pattern in it’s potential state and a self-organizing mechanism for assembling it through a process of synchronistic unfolding. 

All natural phenomena as we know it rises naturally out of our state-of-mind as our mood. How we feel mentally determines what we focus on, think about, what emotions we experience in relation to our thoughts, which memories we play out in our mind through association, what type of story we tell ourselves about something, and so on. Whenever we’re looking at one law, such as the Tetrad here in this article, which is represented by the number 4 (with the value of 5), we know that it comes as the full expression of 0 through 4, while still containing the latent potential of laws 5 – 9, which unfold out of it in a synchronized fashion as a natural growth process.

Each law represents a single aspect and specialized operation as a stage of development in the dynamic unfolding of an even greater creative process. A law is a organizing force that shapes an “idea” into a “coherent field” as a kind of “seed” for impregnating the womb of the subconscious. Whatever idea we inject into our subconscious is imagined as an actual experience of reality, and “magnetized” with sensations that produce an equivalent emotional response. It’s the “reaction” (movement) that causes it to begin vibrating at the frequency of the emotion that it birthed. As it begins vibrating at a certain rate and mode, it resonates with the light around it,  and organizes it into structured patterns that outwardly display distinct characteristics and express through specialized behaviors.They come as an interaction between spirit and matter as the mind and body working together as different densities of the same thing to produce what we experience as a coherent material reality.

This “reality”, which is a product of the “greater mind” operating through the “individual mind” on different scales, planes, and magnitudes simultaneously through a dynamic process of adaptation and modification, is first produced as a kind of “original creation” that’s purely unconscious in nature (based on the universal memory of the collective unconscious) and shared by the entire natural world and all its inhabitants. As we impregnate our own subconscious with an idea, we impregnate the entire space around us with that same idea, because we all share the same subconscious mind. What we refer to as “our” subconscious is also the group mind of the “collective unconscious” and what we call mass consciousness which all acts together harmoniously to produce the same reality as a theme or metaphor. This reality of mass consciousness provides us with the “objective foundation” as a starting point for creating a personal reality unconsciously through our very perception of it, and in a conscious manner by learning how to operate the higher capacities inherent in our own mind.

When we understand how the universal laws of the mind work, we can work by way of those laws to create our self and our experience of reality, which are both simply symbolic outplays and projections of each other on smaller and larger scales and at higher and lower levels. When we fail to recognize and understand the laws that govern our own mind and reality, we often work in a way that contradicts them and we create in a haphazard and random way as a result. We experience our lives as though we have no control over what happens to us or why. We don’t realize in the ultimate sense that we are actually the one creating our experience of our self and reality through our “inner character” as an idea we’ve cultivated about ourselves and our natural ability to perceive that same idea in our outer world.

We form “ourselves” out of our own thoughts and emotions as a kind of archetype or “mental model of the world” that acts as a theme for producing both our inner and outer reality as a continuous part of the same idea played out at both the personal and universal level at the same time. This law is illustrated in the primary 3-in-1 Law of the Monad, which contains the seeded potential as a full expression of all laws that it acts to give birth to as a growth process of spirit “becoming” fully actualized in material form. Thought produces the physical form as a light-matrix, and sensation as emotion produces the feeling that animates it, which blend together to produce a certain “type” of experience. Whatever type of experiences we produce with our mental paradigm, we also experience our “self” through, and we shape our identity accordingly. Whatever we wrap our identity around we use as the means for creating ourselves through the story we live as the expression of the relationship that’s formed.

The Monad – the Mind, Soul, and Self

All of life as we know it is the result of “combinations” of polar opposites that form a dynamic relationship as new variations of a universal idea or theme. The Monad is represented as the combination of 0 and 1 (nothing and something) as a sphere or circle with a dot in the center, the same symbol that’s used to represent the sun as the center of our solar system. This can also be seen as the “dual state” of light (photons as the essence of matter) that exists simultaneously as both a particle and wave, or as the individual mind located within a material body and the outer reality of the universal mind that they experience themselves through as a cohesive version of the same metaphorical idea. All material forms are accompanied by a holographic electromagnetic field that forms its “etheric double” as a kind of “spatial blueprint” or 3-D model that’s used to inform, maintain, and animate it, giving it life temporarily.

The Monad represents the human soul as a “medium” that exists on the “Astral Plane” and serves to draw down and absorb ideas from the higher spiritual plane of archetypal ideas in order to create itself “as” a reality. Through a dynamic process of mental imagery, vibration, sympathetic resonance, and coherence, the human soul creates in an infinite variety of ways that are unique and diversified, yet still a part of the main, overall theme of humanity. The Monad is the combination of spirit as laws and principles that serve to imbue the personality of the body with attributes and characteristics through the medium of the mind, which acts to create the body out of archetypal memory, and then inhabits it in order to express as a material being. All creation within the material plane is produced by a combination of three corresponding planes and levels of the mind all vibrating in harmony as extensions of each other.

The Monad contains the life-force energy that causes a single cell to regenerate and multiply while undergoing a process of differentiation in order to specialize and play a unique part in an even greater unified whole. Through the process of Mitosis, a single cell regenerates itself in order to produce trillions of cells that all share the same basic information in different combinations and degrees necessary to perform different functions as a part of the same being. While we think of the body as being comprised of trillions of individual cells, the fact is, it’s actually comprised of “one cell” of coded information that regenerates and replicates itself trillions of times. This is the same principle that operates the DNA of our body where we form new combinations through the feminine and masculine aspects of the same genetic code and produce a unique variation as our offspring based on what’s turned on and turned off to produce a unique formula comprised of the same basic information.

The Monad regenerates and separates from itself forming the “appearance” of itself as another or as an outer reality that’s of the same nature (idea as a theme) on a larger scale. There’s never a total separation from ourselves in the real sense, but more of a projection and expansion of the inner that blends with itself in the outer, connecting to the core or center of being in everything else, transforming how it appears to us. The center (dot) of one exists on the periphery (outer boundary of the sphere) of the other. This act of self-regeneration, represented by the energetic substrata of the mind and matter intimately woven together as a whole, forms both the core self of the individual as a certain “type of person”, and the outer reality as the type of story that person acts to naturally tell by how they live their life.

The outer world as what we have come to call “reality” is produced and only exists through our perception of it. As we “look though” our mind as our mental paradigm, we can only “see” what matches it in everything else. We can only comprehend what can be constructed, described, explained, and given meaning using our mental model. We act unconsciously to shape the appearance of the outer world and everyone else to be of the same nature as we are. Our mental vibration forms a thematic pattern as a paradigm that serves to stimulate and bring out the same qualities as complementary opposites in everything around us, setting the stage necessary for expressing through a story we tell ourselves about things as a way of producing our experiences. As we create our inner experiences of an outer reality, we sense our self through those experiences and simultaneously create ourselves by how we associate and identify with our own story about things.

The Dyad – The Womb of the Universe    

The regeneration and projection of the Monad produces the Dyad, which creates the medium between the inner and outer world that gives rise to all of our thoughts and imaginings. The Monad is fundamentally androgynous in nature, and separates itself to produce the feminine (inner) and masculine (outer) aspect of the same thing necessary to “procreate” by producing offspring as new combinations and relationships with different aspects of ourselves in everything else. Our inner world of thought and emotions shaped into a reality in the imagination forms our perceptual lens that we use to view the outer world, and the outer world in turn acts to stimulate and influence the thoughts and feelings that form our internal world. All reality is produced by a self-perpetuating expansion and contraction of the “self” that acts to create itself on different scales within multiple planes simultaneously.

The inner and outer world exists in relationship with each other as a form of space-time continuum, represented by a straight line that connects the center (dots) of both spheres of consciousness as a shared inner nature. This horizontal line that connects the material bodies of both the self and others, as the inner that produces the outer, represents the material plane as being a product of or simulated reproduction of the mind (soul) creating it. We act on the outer environment to influence it into a new form by re-configuring it (resonance) by how we first view it and then interpret it, altering its vibration to form a new pattern (coherence). Once we’ve altered the appearance of the outer reality through a mental interaction and relationship, we then absorb and draw the experience of it back into ourselves, stimulating ourselves with our own creation. All of our perception and creative activities come through the relationship we form with ourselves (same idea as a life theme) in everything else.

The Triad – the Power of the Imagination

As we connect with and perceive ourselves in others through the activities and events of our life, we’re stimulated in ways that activate, call forth, and intensify some qualities, while returning others to a passive and latent state. We form thoughts as an internal representation of possible realities based on new combinations. We take a metaphorical idea and adapt it to our current life situation by how we apply it and form a modified version of the same basic idea. As we think and imagine, we alter our vibratory state and “tune ourselves” internally to the outer reality of our thoughts. Whatever idea we connect with and readily take in and begin thinking about, we become one with in spirit. By continuing to think about an idea that was stimulated in us by another, we integrate it into our paradigm through the reality we form of it in our imagination that sets the basis as a pattern for being able to first perceive it outwardly, then resonate and connect with it, forming a gravitational field between the inner idea and corresponding outer idea of the same nature or vibratory frequency.

This internal representation of reality produced in the imagination by the absorption and integration of a congruent idea, forms a new and unique combination of the same basic qualities to produce the triad. The triad is represented by a triangular shape whose base is formed by the straight line connecting the inner with the outer of the same nature, which then peaks in the center as a harmoniously “exalted state” on the upper plane as the imaginary creation of the mind / soul. The Law of the Triad represents the Law of the Imagination which forms an internal reality as the basis or energetic template for producing an outer reality of the same theme.

The reality created in our imagination as a potential reality tunes us energetically to the state of that reality, and forms the “vibratory template” as the “etheric hologram” for attracting, organizing, and perceiving that same type of reality outwardly. As we think and picture our thoughts as an internal representation or working concept, we form the “filtering system and lens” that we then look through in order to create our experience of reality. The same idea as a kind of metaphor or archetype is played out on multiple scales as the foundation for both a personal and universal reality. The inner is looked through and reflected downward in a polarized, reverse image on the lower plane, producing another triangle joined by the same baseline or foundation (horizontal line), producing a diamond shape as the Tetrad. When a diamond is reoriented horizontally, it forms a square or cube, which is symbolic of the material world shaped by the Four Elements. The Four Elements of the Pentad (5) form an equilateral square on the lower plane that’s shaped by the Fifth Element of the mind on the higher plane directly above it, all of which are symbolized by triads.

The Tetrad – the Birth of Reality

The Tetrad is the complementary opposite of the Triad on a different (lower) plane and is produced in a similar fashion to the Dyad, which exists as a reflection or mirror image (opposite) of the Monad on the same correlating plane. In this sense, the inner and outer, and the upper and lower are complementary opposites of the same thing and are produced by the same fundamental law of self-replication and reproduction. One acts to produce the other as smaller and greater expressions of the same metaphorical idea. Our internal nature as the qualities that make up our character, become the basis for producing an outer reality that’s comprised of the same, yet opposite qualities and characteristics. We’re always creating our opposite outside of us as a means of contrasting and relating to it in order to define ourselves by way of it. We can only know ourselves as “good”, by contrasting and comparing ourselves to what we deem “bad”. The idea of good and bad are opposites of the same idea that are simply cast in different roles, and one is necessary in order to define the other.

The soul creates itself by whatever it has a natural connection with (resonates with) and desires to become “one with in mind” through that connection. The soul acts as a medium between upper planes of the spirit as laws and archetypes, and the lower plane of the material world as coalesced light that produces the material reality as the “meaning” of our thoughts. Whatever idea the soul takes in and produces a possible reality out of by thinking about it and applying to their daily life in a specific and detailed manner, becoming “one with it in spirit”, acts to create through a natural process of adaptation that modifies the idea to become a congruent and meaningful part of its natural outer perception and daily life.

Our inner nature forms our natural feelings of connection with whatever is of the same nature and idea all around us. As we become one with an idea in thought and form a picture of it internally as a potential reality that’s played out in our daily life, and we concentrate on it repetitively while infusing it with magnetism (passion), it becomes a perceptual filter and we systematically see, connect with, and produce it as a corresponding outer experience. The soul as the mind only learns through experience, and creates itself as having certain qualities and characteristics by producing an experience of itself as the outward expression of those qualities, producing a memory of it. As the soul produces the reality of an idea, it senses itself by way of and in relationship with that idea, and acts on itself to shape itself in a completely self-contained and self-perpetuating manner.

How the Soul Creates its own Reality

We can only truly “do” what we can first imagine ourselves doing. When we’re left to our own devices, all of our goals and desires emerge naturally in our imagination by thinking about them. As we create an internal sensory experience of an idea, we create an “energetic template” that provides the subconscious with the pattern as a form of “virtual memory” for producing as an outer correspondence. Just the act of imagining an idea as an “actual experience” gives us the pattern as a way of being and the pathway for creating it as an actual outer experience of the same nature. Our ability to create in the outer world is based solely on our ability to first create it inwardly. Both the inner and the outer are constantly being transformed by each other through the nature of their interaction to produce an endless variety as an evolution of the same idea.

The model of the Tetragrammaton shows us that the inner mind of the subconscious is also what produces the outer world of self-awareness. The core or central self of the personality produces the outer world that it exists in and uses to experience itself. In order to change the outer world of manifest reality, we have to change the inner world of the imagination. We have to learn how to seed our own subconscious as the means of producing new experiences. We do this by picking intentional thoughts as ideas that we hold in our mind, concentrate on and imagine as a detailed sensory reality while infusing it with very compelling emotions, forming a strong desire for it. The subconscious is “experiential” in nature as the faculty of the mind that acts to produce our outer experiences, and we have to program it for new realities by turning an idea into an experience that produces a form of virtual memory. The subconscious, as an aspect of the soul, creates in an automatic fashion based on the memory it’s programmed with.

Emotion is the motivating force of the subconscious and is what naturally produces all of our behaviors and activities while in a physical body. How an idea is expressed to produce an outer reality is based on how we present the idea to ourselves internally and what emotion it naturally acts to invoke in us as a natural response to the idea. Emotion is the active and formative energy and connecting medium of the material plane. Any emotion being inwardly experienced and outwardly expressed produces an electrical charge that’s transmitted through the atmosphere, stimulating the same emotion in everything around us, bringing it into an active state in order to create a joint reality out of it.

The subconscious is motivated instinctively by feelings of pleasure or pain, and as a general rule, moves towards pleasure and away from pain, as a form of attraction and repulsion. In order to manifest a reality intentionally, we have to make sure we present it to ourselves in a way that elicits the proper emotion and type of experience. Otherwise we act to repel and negate the very thing we say we want. All reality is produced by the congruent unification of a combination of factors. It’s a combination of unconscious ideas and behaviors that play out automatically without direct awareness and conscious intention that’s designed to transform and evolve natural tendencies to a higher and more beneficial expression.

Summary

Whatever we think about and picture in our imagination as an actual experience, we become one with in mind, and produce metaphorically as our personal reality. Whatever thoughts we think that produce and keep us in certain emotional states, become the nature of all our outer experiences and what serves to motivate all of our natural and automatic behaviors. If we’re feeling sad, we focus on and think about sad things, replay sad memories over and over in our mind, and act to create more sad experiences. The thoughts we naturally think in an automatic fashion are based on our soul’s nature and character, and come by strengthening and reinforcing certain parts of our soul’s nature through our formative conditioning. Whatever we think about we become one with in mind and spirit, and set as a mental template and request for producing as an outer experience of reality. On the higher spiritual planes, “thoughts are actions” and are creative.

To change our life and reality, we have to change our habitual thoughts and the emotional states they produce or were born out of, and seed our imagination instead with new thoughts that we imagine as intense experiences that act to naturally elicit strong positive feelings of desire and emotional pleasure in response to them. We have to upgrade and evolve our mental paradigm through the incorporation of new ideas conceived of and born in the imagination as a detailed internal representation. Once an idea is imagined as an emotionally intense experience of a pleasurable nature, it integrates into our mental model as a possibility and becomes a natural part of our make-up and perception of reality. We tune ourselves to the vibration of that idea, and form a gravitational field between us and whatever’s of that same idea around us that can be used coherently to co-create it as a joint experience.
