Karma – Beyond the Veil of Negative Existence and the Process of Rebirth

What’s portrayed in Esoteric texts as the “Veil of Negative Existence” can be a very elusive idea because it deals with another realm of life on a higher plane of existence that’s hidden and unknown to us while living in this realm. Yet, like all things of a spiritual (invisible) nature, it can be comprehended and therefore understood in the practical sense through an understanding of universal laws and archetypal principles, which provide us with the means to work with it in an intuitive and intelligent manner. There are a multitude of interpretations on the nature and purpose of Karma and the “life after death experience” that are clearly based on a belief and hopeful thinking that often seem to render the process of living and dying to be meaningless in the most basic sense and was clearly born out of whatever belief, fear or insecurity in the unknown was motivating it.

I’ve also heard accounts described by those who worked through hypnotic regression, not only in tuning into the memory of past lives, but also the process that occurs between lives that’s presented as a “planning stage” where we supposedly “choose” the conditions and souls of our next incarnation in terms of what lessons we want to learn and what type of life experiences we need to go through in order to grow ourselves in a specific way. While I don’t care to comment on those in terms of a psychological evaluation of the methods used (I’m very experienced in hypnosis and past life regression), which in many cases were obviously flawed and the results obtained therefore equally flawed, I will break it down into scientific terms which will not only bring an understanding of what happens in the afterlife, but more importantly, provide clear instruction on how to work with your own soul’s evolution while living in this realm.

Behind the Veil of Negative Existence

The hidden aspect of our own higher nature is symbolized by a semi-transparent veil that hangs between two pillars, known as Jakin and Boaz (masculine and feminine aspects of our mind), and symbolizes the basis of “reality” (vibration that organizes essence into a living model) as being of both a conscious and unconscious nature. This same idea is also symbolized by an equal armed cross as two sides of reality that are both of an upper and lower plane (vertical) and an inner and outer one (horizontal), that exist as reflections of each other. Symbolically speaking a straight line nearly always represents a “plane of existence”. A line is commonly used to represent the connection of complementary opposites which are aspects of the same thing. While we tend to think of this as our subconscious and self-conscious mind on the material plane, this same principle also operates between what we can think of as parallel planes where our higher consciousness exists on a higher plane and serves to reflect the reality of the lower plane of material existence through what’s known in esoteric sciences as the “etheric body” or etheric-double. The etheric double forms what can be thought of as a “holographic blueprint” for constructing, animating, and sustaining the lower plane of material formation.

What’s referred to symbolically as the “Ancient of Days”, represented as an mature bearded man sitting on a throne, is the “Primordial Spark” (electrical charge) as the Monad (cosmic mind), which is the seed that contains within it all the other universal principles and emanates them in succession. This Fatherly figure is always shown as a face (countenance) in profile as the “right side”, while the left side remains hidden. What this represents is “symmetry” as a mirror image that operates as the fundamental principle of polarity, and the algebraic system, which basically states that you can know the unknown aspects of anything based on how it exists in relationship with the known factors. We can “know” what the left side of the face looks like because it’s a mirror image (reverse) of the right side. Polar aspects of the same whole are represented by the left and right sides of the body, which are complementary opposites of each other and directly reflect each other as a reverse (mirror) image. So, while we can say that the left side is hidden, and therefore unknown and mysterious, we can also say the right side is the outward reflection of the left side, and that by knowing the right we can also know the left. Polar opposites are always mirror images of each other, not only as an “inner and outer”, but also as an upper and lower in terms of moving between parallel planes that are different aspects of a greater whole (multitude of interlaced planes) that exists in a “coherent state” being looked at and experienced from different levels and perspectives.

The concept as a working model for understanding how something functions as two pillars set apart from each other with a veil or sheer curtain hung between them, can easily be thought of as the basis for vibration as the movement of energy between 2 aspects of the same thing that are polarized to each other as complementary opposites. The veil represents the “light essence” as a phosphene-like structure that forms between them due to the friction generated. So, we have a positive pole and a negative pole, one is electric and expanding, the other magnetic and receptive. These poles have been produced by the division and regeneration of the Monad, and each one contains both aspects within them, which alternate between an active and passive state. The electromagnetic pulsation between two poles that are complementary aspects of the same thing creates the illusion of “dimension” (light body) as a space-time continuum, and becomes a semi-closed system that’s self-generating, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining. We can know what’s on the hidden side of the veil because it’s a symmetrical aspect of what’s on the outward side. There’s no difference between them because they’re the expansion and activity of the same thing, born out of the same “seed” of potential. If we were to pull the curtain aside and walk through it, it would be a continuation of the same reality on the “other side”.

This same principle is carried through in every single aspect of what exists as a greater whole, not only within the lower plane of manifestation in the linear sense, but also within the hierarchical planes of pure mind, consciousness, and the soul. The Monad, which exists on what we can call the highest plane or level of manifestation in it’s purely potential and unformed state, is what we can think of as the “seed” that contains all the information as memory within it for growing a living reality on the lower planes. An easy way to think of “negative existence” as the hidden realm behind the veil of conscious awareness, is to think of a “seed”. Hidden within the seed is all the memory in a dormant state that contains the potential of that living organism within it. The seed of a tree, for example, contains all the information necessary for growing the tree along with its life span as an allotted amount of life-force. The seed contains its genetic and spiritual (energetic) make-up, which, when planted, grows and matures through natural stages of development by consistently activating and actualizing “latent potential” until it becomes a fully mature tree with a designated life-span. This is the same principle that operates in all life-forms as what we call “Divine Providence”, as a master plan or blueprint for the entire lifetime of an organism.

This same principle naturally operates through what we experience as our subconscious and conscious mind, which function harmoniously to produce an inner and outer awareness of a greater whole in which both aspects are complementary to each other. Our subconscious functions in an unconscious and automatic manner, which means we lack direct awareness of it, and is what we call our “hidden nature”. This aspect of our material mind is what forms our whole outer reality as an energetic matrix or substrata of dynamic tension, that we then view with our conscious mind as awareness of the outer world, can be thought of as the unknown aspect of our “self” that exists behind the veil. It can’t be seen and therefore known in the direct sense, but it can be felt as a fundamental part of our emotions, feelings, and intuition. While we may not recognize the elements and activities of our outer world as revealing the hidden aspects of our subconscious, we still form a pronounced reaction to them, and through our reaction, think about them and form them into realities in our mind.

We can come to recognize our own hidden nature by realizing that it forms the fundamental structure of our outer reality as a mirror image. The reason we notice certain things outside of us and form a reaction to them is because of how and what they’re stimulating inside of us. The reason you’re being stimulated by it is because you have a complementary correspondence of it in its latent (inactive) state which acts as an “energetic receptor” for it. Once the latent aspect within is brought into an active state as an equivalent vibration, together, they work on each other to form a single reality within the imagination that connects and unites the inner and outer as a single idea or thematic pattern. Things that have been fully integrated into our make-up are no longer unknown aspects and appear ordinary and natural to us. Once we realize that the outer is a mirror image of the inner, we can use this as the means of being able to see into our own psychological make-up and work on our self to bring awareness around fragmented and repressed aspects of our self that remain hidden within us, and we can work through this awareness to facilitate our own spiritual healing.

Karma as the Seed for Life

What we refer to as karma can be understood in the most basic sense as the Law of Cause and Effect, which comes as an interaction between complementary opposites of the same pattern as a dynamic. Every action and behavior, whether we’re aware of it or not, causes an equal or greater reaction of the same kind and type. The effect always contains and expresses the essence of the cause. A law means there are no exceptions to this rule because it forms the very basis of reality itself as “vibration”, which comes as the interaction of opposite aspects of the same idea working together to create a coherent pattern. It doesn’t matter if it’s good or bad, constructive or destructive, whatever we think and do creates the very structure and activity of our outer reality. Our entire reality, which is formed through our perception of it, is something we’re always creating with our mind, not as fragmented aspects of intention, attitude, emotional state, preferences, beliefs, and so on, but through how all aspects work together in forming a single whole which provides us with the means for “experiencing ourselves”.

We are always the one creating our life, not so much in the objective sense of a neutral reality that exists apart from us, out there, but in the subjective sense of “out there” and “in here” being the same thing as a mirror image of each other. What we find as we move up the hierarchical planes of existence is that the lower is a reflection of the higher as the reality grown from our karmic seed of accumulated memory built up over time through several life-times. While we live our life from the perception of being separate from everything else while in material form, as we move up the planes into what you might call our Primordial Consciousness, we become “one with life” as reality itself in a single form. On this level there is no one else but us. There are no committees, no different rooms as different categories where a planning process takes place and we make decisions for our next life based on an awareness of only fragmented parts of ourselves – but where we are “programmed with” the memory we formed of our own creation of our “self” as a “whole reality” and type of experience.

As we express energetically, we perceive our self as a greater whole that sets the stage for us to create our self as a particular type of person. As we create our reality as an interaction with ourselves in another, we associate with our own projections, building our “sense of self” out of them as our “identity”. Our identity is “who we are” based on how we shape our self through our own creation and is what forms the memory of our self that becomes the programming as a frequency for the seed of our next incarnation. The seed of our karma is the “I” (I Am) of our higher soul formed out of the memory we created of ourselves. It’s what forms the “I” of the Tetragrammaton (4 letter name of God – IHVH), which is represented by the triangle formed by drawing lines that connect the two physical eyes and the third eye, located in the center of the forehead. Our third eye is a “single eye” formed by uniting the two physical into a single reality. The “H” is the regeneration of the “I”, formed by connecting two I’s at the center, forming a new letter as One comprised of dual parts that exist in harmony as mirror images of each other. The third letter, “V” is the straight line divided and spread apart creating dimension as an inverted triangle where polar opposites interact to form a single reality as a material formation. This is also symbolized as a cup or chalice that becomes the light-body as a shell for spirit to inhabit and express through as a living being. The material reality only serves as the vessel or vehicle for the spirit-soul to have it’s being in order to experience Itself. The final “H” is the manifestation of the first one on the lower arc of the material plane as a mirror image or complementary opposite of the seed formed on the higher plane of pure potential. What existed in a latent and potential state on the higher plane of pure mind, has now manifested in form on the lower material plane as a mirror image.

7 Parallel Planes of Existence

What’s referred to as “planes of existence” form a hierarchical structure as a kind of gradient or “scale of vibration” that moves between a positive and negative pole of the same thing. This idea can be conceptualized as a musical scale comprised of 7 notes that make up an octave, where the lower note “builds” as a progression until it reaches its fullness as an amplification, forming the 7th note as the culmination of that level. Once it reaches an exalted level within that scale, it functions through what’s called the “threshold effect”, where it moves into the next higher octave as the lowest, base note of that scale. It forms the same note on a higher plane (frequency) and begins the same progression again on a higher level. This scale of 7 planes is beautifully illustrated in the Qabalah Tree of Life as “states” of consciousness that naturally perform particular functions as an essential part of a greater whole.

These 7 levels are formed out of Triads that are reflections of each other where 2 levels also form a single level as polar opposites that form a coherent whole on either a higher or lower arc of the same plane. The Triad that represents a single level symbolizes the process of “division and unification”, where the “One” divides into complementary aspects of Itself, where one interacts with the other to form a single 3-dimensional reality. When these levels are broken down into Triads formed out of a pair of opposites, we get 3 levels that are all formed as Triads, and manifest in the 4th level of the Quaternary as a single reality. This shows the constant process of the mind separating from itself to form dual aspects as counterparts and then reuniting them back into a single idea, where we then divide again as the means of either descending or ascending through the same scale from a higher vibration that’s all-inclusive to a lower one that’s singular in nature.  

This same principle as a concept can be used in understanding the function of our “3 eyes”, one of which is internal, single, and hidden, and 2 of which are external and used to perceive the outer world of manifestation. When we place this same triangle over our forehead with the horizontal base line connecting our two physical eyes, and the higher single point forming our 3rd eye in the center of our forehead, we can gain a working concept of how we “receive” communication from the higher, subtle planes of coalesced essence. An idea from the higher plane comes as a “whole idea” in its potential state (seed for reality) that’s planted in our subconscious as pictures and symbols that are grown internally into possibilities for producing as outer realities that provide us with particular types of experience. All communication from our higher self originates on a higher level that’s unified and comes in “seed form” as an archetype that’s grown within our own subconscious by integrating it naturally into our existing reality through a process of adaptation.

Concepts

We conceive of an archetypal idea as an image that’s reflected in our mind’s eye, and as we focus on and begin thinking about it, it unfolds and begins taking shape by synthesizing it into our mental paradigm which serves to define and modify into a correspondence. As a symbolic representation of a universal idea, it can be used to create numerous variations of the same basic concept, and once built into our paradigm, becomes a natural part of our everyday reality as our perception. It’s conceived as an “archetype” (metaphor and theme) that’s energetic in nature and represents a general concept for producing a particular type of experience based how it’s combined with other elements where it acts as the “organizing principle” that follows a general “theme”. It’s not given to us as a fixed idea that’s already formed but acts more like a “suggestion” that’s interjected into our subconscious that we then use as the means for building equivalent ideas as an outer experience. We create our experiences of any situation or circumstance by how we build them into our story as an interpretation, which is formed out of a theme.

This can be easily understood by realizing that “anger”, which is a quality of being as a vibratory frequency not only displays all the physical attributes and appearance of “being angry”, and acting angry, but also acts to stimulate and infuse everything around it into the same energetic state, forming the larger pattern of activity. A person being outwardly angry causes everyone around them to become angry or scared and together they create a shared experience born out of anger. While we tend to think of life in separative terms of self and another, where we only play one role in acting out a greater pattern as a co-creation, the fact is we’re acting to facilitate the whole pattern as a behavioral dynamic where we can, and do, play every role necessary to produce the experience that pattern renders.

For example, a person who was physically abused as a child, and initially experiences being a helpless victim of the abuse, isn’t just being imprinted with that role in the pattern, but is imprinted with the pattern itself. While they may relate to the child’s role as a child, as they grow older, will begin moving into the adult role in that same pattern and will have a tendency to become the one doing the abusing. A child who’s abused at home, where they’re clearly the victim, will develop a tendency to lash out in a similar manner within their own peer group and start fights, bully others, and pick on those who can’t or won’t fight back. In one situation they’re the victim, and in another they’re the one victimizing another in the same way through the “same tendency” played out from both ends, producing the same type of experience.

duality

This is the way karma works. It’s not produced from a fragmented, one-sided perspective within a whole, but as a natural tendency that acts out every role in that same pattern under different circumstances. So when we say that a child is physically abused as their “karma” carried forward from their previous life, it’s not referring to them getting back what they deserve and put forward necessarily, but as experiencing the same pattern as a behavioral dynamic from different perspectives and roles within that same “pattern”. If they’re not the one being abused, they’re the one instigating it or doing it to another. They continue to unknowingly display the same behaviors that led to them being abused that serve to provoke others to abuse them in the same way. We’re often fooled by our own tendencies, because when we do the same “behavior” as an action towards another, we make it out to be different through the reason’s we have for doing it that justify it as being right and appropriate. This is what it means to act out the same idea from different perspectives. When I’m giving it out, I’m telling myself a story about why I’m doing it that makes it seem different than when I’m on the receiving end of the same action and behavior. As a result, I can’t see how it is that I’m “getting back what I put out”, or how others are doing the same thing to me that I’m also doing to them.

The reason we have for doing it may be different, but the action itself is the same, and forms a “cause and effect” relationship. All our actions cause an equivalent reaction in others, and the reaction we produce that’s mirrored back to us, stimulates us with the same reaction, amplifying it, and a back-and-forth movement ensues that creates the same type of experience over and over in different situations and with different people. As we create experiences through our actions and how we interact with others, we simultaneously create our “self” by how we identify with our own experiences. We create our experiences by how we interpret the events and activities of our life as a story we’re always telling ourselves about things, and we identify with our own story. As we create our experiences, we accumulate them as memories of our self that are built up over time as various aspects of the same overall idea. We create and build up memories throughout our lifetime as an accumulative process that forms our inner nature as our personality and character, and this same inner nature is carried forward into the next incarnation as our predisposition and temperament. One life is the continuation of the previous life, where we experience our own creation from a different perspective and through a new life situation.

Imagination

Once we realize how this fundamental principle works, as a continuous process of first separating our inner from the outer, and then bringing it back into a unified state by how we interpret it to form an experience, we can use it as the means of being able to recognize and understand our own hidden nature. We can realize that the outer is providing us with a mirror into our own repressed and hidden nature. It’s showing us how it is that we’ve judged ourselves, denying and hiding parts of ourselves, and as a result, are judging and reacting to others in the same way. There’s a veil drawn between the inner and outer that prevents us from seeing what’s hidden deep inside of us, but we can come to recognize it by how it appears outside of us as our own projection. When we refrain from reacting and instead turn our attention inward to self-reflect on that same quality within us, we can follow it back to its root cause through a chain of associated memories. Once we can tune into the originating experience, we can then detach from our own judgments and view it instead from a rational state of reasoning. Once we connect the inner with the outer in a congruent and harmonious manner, we unify that aspect of ourselves hidden within our subconscious and no longer form a pronounced reaction to it or need to act it out from an unconscious state of denial. We can find a healthy and appropriate means of expressing it and as a result, integrate it through awareness where it no longer provokes us into an unconscious state as a reaction.

This same idea operates on the inner planes as a semi-closed circuit that moves between opposite poles of what seems like an inner and outer reality, that are actually a continuation of each other. We form an idea on the inner planes of our mind that serve as a metaphor for creating as an outer reality of the same idea, and we blend them back together as an experience, by using one as the means for interpreting the other so they tell the same story. The experience produced as a story is then absorbed and integrated as a memory which becomes a natural part of both the seed and the reality inherent in the seed. As we produce experiences they’re synthesized into an archetypal matrix as a single idea where it becomes the seed for generating more experiences of the same kind. A closed circuit is formed as a pulsation that continuously moves from the inner to the outer and from the upper to lower as a rhythmic cycle. We work with a cycle of creation by producing new variations that imbue it with new attributes and characteristics that changes how it expresses and the story it serves to tell as a modification. This process of evolution is greatly facilitated as a kind of “quickening” through the awareness that the inner and outer are direct reflections of each other, with one being a metaphor for constructing the other.

Once we become aware of our own fragmented parts by reuniting them into a coherent perception of ourselves, they no longer appear outside of us as the “lessons” we need to learn, and we resolve the patterns of our karma. Once we realize we’re the one creating our “self” as a reality, we can resume full responsibility for our own creation. We can mend the fragmented aspects of our mind born out of trauma of some kind and regain awareness of who we really are and our ability to create ourselves through our perception of reality. By returning separate aspects of our “self” back into a harmonious whole through a conscious awareness of them, we no longer create out of an unconscious state as the habitual tendencies born out of our formative conditioning, and we transcend this plane altogether, moving on to a new level of consciousness where we create ourselves and our reality in a self-aware and intentional manner. It’s our destiny as humans to exercise our creative abilities to a proficient level where we can stay fully awake and aware of our own creations and create ourselves in a more expressive and purposeful manner.

Beliefs, Delusions, and the Mind’s ability to Perpetuate its Own Experiences

I’m not going to approach this idea from the conventional standpoint of attempting to describe the nature of beliefs, how we form them out of our conditioning, and the psychological process necessary for changing them, because a great deal has already been written on this subject. What I’m going to elaborate on instead is recognizing the power of our mind in first forming a belief as an “internal representation” and then producing the “reality” of the belief as our normal way of perceiving the world. As we integrate a belief into the same system that acted to produce it, it becomes a natural part of our everyday reality. This natural power of the mind in being able to produce a physical effect based on a thought has been demonstrated repeatedly through what’s called the “placebo effect”. These experiments demonstrate that when someone is given a medication that’s a placebo (inactive substance), while being told it will produce a specific effect, they create the physical effect of whatever they were told it would do using their mind. Our innate ability to create the outer reality of our thoughts and beliefs come through our mind’s natural ability to organize the light (information) of our material world (matter is comprised of photons) into the construct of our belief as a mean’s of “experiencing” it. One of the easiest ways to understand the true power of our mind in being able to construct our physical reality as a correlation to a representation developed on the inner planes of our mind, comes by exploring the fundamental nature of “perception”. 

The most basic form of what’s referred to in Esoteric texts as “illusions” (maya) created in place of “actual (objective) reality” that causes someone to get lost in a form of self-perpetuating fantasy, comes through a belief that’s formulated into a “mental filter”, or a dynamic series of correlated mental filters that form the basis of our “mental paradigm” as our “lens of perception”. Our perception of reality is formed through our paradigm which serves as a filtering system for abstracting only the information available in any situation or set of circumstances that match our belief about it and can therefore be used as the building blocks for constructing it. Nowhere is the power of our mind more profoundly and yet simply demonstrated than in our natural ability to produce the reality of whatever it is we form a belief around. The energetic structure of our mind is formed as our “model of the world”, which vibrates at a specific “frequency” and acts as an “organizing mechanism” for restructuring the outer world to be a mirror image of our thoughts about it. This self-assembling ability of the mind works through sympathetic resonance to select only correlated bits of information inherent in the whole of reality, pull them to the foreground, and then arrange them into a corresponding theme, which it then animates with life as an “interpretation” that forms the outer world to be of the same nature as the inner world. 

A belief, like all things born out of the mind, doesn’t come as a single belief that operates in an independent and unrelated manner, it comes as a part of a dynamic system of beliefs, which are all harmoniously unified to function as a coherent whole. One belief is formed out of a dynamic “group of beliefs” as a congruent part of the same system in much the same way an “idea” is developed into a potential reality in our imagination by “thinking about it”. As we think about an idea, we begin shaping it with attributes and qualities that give it specific characteristics. As we continue thinking about it, a chain-of-association spontaneously forms as a correlation to all other ideas of a similar nature that we use as the means for continuing to develop it by shaping it to be of a similar nature. We then continue to define the idea by how we adapt it to our current reality so that it becomes a natural part of our greater story.  Our belief about something is formed out of the foundation of all our other beliefs where it’s shaped in relation with them as the means of intuitively integrating it so it can become a natural part of our reality in a way that makes sense. Once a belief is developed as a coherent part of our existing reality, it becomes self-fulfilling, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining. We use it as the means for generating a consistent version of reality. Since we can perceive the reality of our beliefs, we don’t recognize them as being something we created and instead see them as an objective fact. Because our perception of reality is created in a completely natural and unconscious manner, we don’t realize how it is we’re creating our own personal version of reality as a means of experiencing ourselves through our own creation.

Imagination

Duality forms a 3-Dimensional Reality of our Thoughts

One of the most basic errors we make in how we think about the nature of things comes when we approach everything outside of us as being separate and independent of us, instead of realizing that all of what we perceive as “reality” is formed as a “coherent state”. We throw “duality” into the equation as somehow meaning that we’re separate from everything around us and therefore have no part in shaping it, instead of realizing that duality (formed as polar opposites) is necessary in order to produce “dimension” through “vibration”. There’s no such thing as a “closed system” that functions independently of everything else, or an incoherent thought forming out of a coherent mindset, and then somehow being magically perceived and maintained by it. Duality is necessary as the means of producing movement (friction) between two complementary aspects of the same thing (negative and positive poles) as a vibratory pattern. The light as “essence” that’s formed through the movement between opposite poles of the same idea, forms what we experience as “reality” (matrix of organized information). And it’s through this same process of polarity that we constantly “act on our own mental construct” as the means of growing and evolving it by how we adapt it to various situations to form new combinations that imbue it with new attributes and qualities to form novel configurations.

All our thoughts form as the offspring of our mental paradigm as fractal patterns birthed by a parent pattern and are always of the same nature as the whole that births them. Our mind operates according to the “Holographic Principle” where the part and the whole are of the same nature as a singularity. Our mind operates as a closed system of circulating energy that vibrates consistently at a specific rate, mode of consciousness, and frequency as a “range of vibration” (octave). Perception is formed as an emanation of consciousness that flows outward from a concentrated center, forming reality as a reflection of itself, and when it reaches the outer periphery of its energetic discharge, turns back on itself, reabsorbing the light that it served to modify, drawing it back into the center, where it’s synthesized into the paradigm from whence it emanated. By integrating our own creation as a variation of the same overall theme, we modify and upgrade our mental paradigm, evolving it according to the new information acquired. Once upgraded with new information the conscious energy is then projected outward again through a process of separation (extension) that’s really a form of “regeneration”, where it again forms a mirror image of itself as its environment and then reabsorbs it as an experience by coming back into a state of unity with itself. This idea is represented metaphorically by the mythological god “Saturn”, whose legend tells us ate his own offspring, and with the symbol formed out of the number “8” as a continuous self-perpetuating system of complementary opposites.

We form the perception of separation, where we don’t realize we’re the one producing the very reality we perceive as “being out there”, apart from us, because this is the only way we have of “experiencing ourselves”. Yet the “state” we imagine to be apart from us as an outer reality is being projected by us as a natural function of our subconscious. Our subconscious is also what we call the “group mind” (collective unconscious) of the Earth’s Soul, and while many interpret this as meaning we’re all “connected as one”, it also means we’re the one producing our perception of reality, and of others as a part of that reality. We’re submerged within the sphere of the material plane as the mental construct of our subconscious where we create an experience of ourselves through our perception of others. We “create ourselves” through the reality that we project as a means of experiencing ourselves. We’re not just our body, as many believe, we’re creating our entire reality and every aspect “in it” is a reflection of that same aspect “in us”, which is necessary as the means of experiencing that part of our Self. This doesn’t necessarily imply that others don’t exist outside of our ability to perceive them, but what it does mean in very definite terms is that we “only see others” as we “remake them to be like us”. We don’t see others as they truly are apart from us, but by looking through our myriad of mental filters that cancels out some aspects while amplifying others and reshaping them to conform to our beliefs about them. We transform everyone into our complementary opposite through our perception of them.

Unidentified Parts within the Whole – the Holographic Principle

Our mind, which is an inherent aspect of our soul, isn’t something that’s formed out of or emanates from our brain, as many have been taught, it’s a sphere of energy comprised of individual consciousness that envelopes, permeates, and acts to operate our brain and nervous system as our means of self-expression. Our mind also operates simultaneously on different levels, scales, and magnitudes to produce our “entire outer reality” in which we function and live out our life as a story we form out of what originates as a universal theme. While some have been taught to imagine this sphere of energy as only emanating a few feet from our body, it’s comprised almost entirely of “subtle energy” and not only emanates as far as we can perceive, but also serves as an active force throughout the sphere (atmosphere) of the entire material plane (Earth consciousness) where it functions through an “organizing principle” to produce corresponding patterns of its vibratory frequency. All vibration is formed out of an idea as a pattern or three-dimensional model (light body) coupled with life-force energy as magnetism that animates it with a personality and grows and evolves it through its own expression.

The mind functions through principles, and like principles, operates in the same way on all planes, levels, and scales of existence. It’s always the same creative process as a universal theme that’s played out through smaller patterns of an exclusive nature within larger patterns of an inclusive nature. It’s the same idea as a prototypal pattern formed as a theme being played out by smaller and larger groups of people that are of a similar conditioning and mindset. Much like concentric waves propagating across the surface of a pond, getting larger as they move away from the center, yet they’re all formed out of the same circle. The individual mind functions on a larger scale as the group mind, which functions within the collective (mass) consciousness of humanity, which functions within the cosmic mind of all life by telling different versions of the same type of stories. Each level is an essential part of all other levels, where one serves as the foundation necessary for others to naturally arise out of as a logical progression. The “story” that we all tell by how we live our life can only be told within a corresponding outer reality of a similar nature which “sets the stage” for us to act it out as a means of “experiencing” our own creation.

This idea is represented by the principles governing “archetypes”, which are all universal prototypes for combining in unique ways to form new possibilities as characters that all have a role in telling the same overall story, and as a result, are played out, one within the other, in a harmonious and congruent way. By learning how to operate our own mind according to Universal Principles we can decide which “role” we want to play within the greater story of our own life. Once we decide what role we want to play in our own story we can work on ourselves to develop our character using archetypal ideas and embodying the qualities that make us ideal for playing that role naturally. When you learn how to operate your mind in a masterful way using principles of the mind, which are the same thing as Universal Principles that govern the entire universe, everything comes about through natural laws and in a completely natural way. When we work to create on the inner, mental planes by mastering our imagination as our will, it serves to give our subconscious mind a pattern along with a directive for creating as a “reality”. We only struggle to create when we don’t have a practical understanding of the principles that provide us with a kind of “instruction manual” for using our mind, and instead work “against” law as a result.

Brain waves

We’re constantly sending out and receiving information contained within our specific frequency as a range of possibilities for constructing a coherent and cohesive reality. We can only consciously form an awareness and knowledge of what can be produced, described, explained, and justified using our paradigm. Our paradigm is the energetic matrix of our mind and operates according to the Holographic Principle on multiple dimensions by propagating a series of fractal patterns as mirror images of itself through the etheric medium of the mind as it exists on multiple levels simultaneously. It then perceives itself through an outer reality as the means of “experiencing” itself. Experience is formed by how we “interpret” what we’re perceiving to give it meaning, and the type of story that naturally results from the meaning of our interpretation. Our mind only “tunes into” and “acts to conceive of ideas” that are congruent and correlated with our “model of the world” and can be used as the elements for constructing the same type of world as a variation. While we can easily produce a significant number of variations that seem different from each other as somehow being unique, they all still hold true to the same overall “theme”. A theme acts as the meaning that forms our life-story played out consistently through how we associate and identify with our own self-made experiences.

We can easily form a practical understanding of this idea by realizing how it is that we first form our experiences, and then translate them into beliefs about ourselves. Our beliefs, like the memories that shape them, aren’t formed out of the actual physical events or situation, but rather by how it is that we interpret them to create how we experience them. We form our experiences by the meaning we give things and the story we tell ourselves about them as a result. The story we form becomes a kind of theme we use as the means of shaping all our experiences to be of a similar nature. When someone interprets emotional charged events to mean they’re “not wanted”, for example, not being wanted becomes a theme they use for interpreting all events and situations of a similar nature to mean the same thing. It becomes a filter they look through to perceive in any situation only what can be used to tell that story and shape all their basic experiences in a way that tells that story. They will interpret any set of behaviors, no matter how well intended, to mean they’re not wanted. They go into every situation with an expectation and attitude of that being the basis and the outcome, and as a result, consistently experience themselves as not being wanted by others.

Energetic Entanglement and the Nature of Polarity

This idea of an archetypal metaphor as a “mental state” naturally forming a specific type of reality as a life-theme can easily be understood as the Holographic Principle which acts as an “organizing mechanism” that works primarily through resonance. This same idea moves between higher and lower planes (parallel dimensions) through the principle known as “Energetic Entanglement”, which operates through the relationship and activity generated by polarity. The same pattern that we use to form our identity also forms the “life stage” in which we play out our life story as the means of gaining “knowledge” of ourselves, which only comes through direct experience. We can only truly “know” what we have experienced. All true knowledge is acquired through “self-knowledge” and is received directly by becoming one with an idea in essence. We become one with an idea by entering into it mentally (energetically), becoming one with it where we perceive ourselves as being it, or by taking on a quality that when expressed by us as a “way of being” brings us a new and different experience of ourselves.

The Holographic Principle is a fundamental principle of the mind which describes how it functions as a both a part (particle) within a greater whole of the same nature (waveform), and simultaneously as the “whole” in which the “part” is a fundamental aspect and experiences itself in association with the theme inherent in the whole. The part and the whole are of the same nature, comprised of the same pattern as a 3-dimensional model (infrastructure) as an “idea” (archetypal matrix) that’s “thematic in nature”, and function together in a congruent manner as a single, coherent state. The part is metaphorical in nature and is of the same frequency and thematic pattern as the whole in which it expresses and has its life as a natural aspect. This relationship can be easily understood when you realize that to tell a particular story as a “type of experience”, you have to also have the proper outer conditions as the reality in which that story naturally plays out. Our mind isn’t “of” the material plane and just creating and maintaining our body, it’s the means through which we’re creating our “whole reality”. Our reality “exists within” our mind. The outer and the inner, just like the upper and lower, are “polar opposites” of each other. When one changes states or moves, the other follows suit instantaneously as a mirror image, not through a pathway in which a form of communication takes place, but because they are the “same thing”. They’re the same “mental state” as a vibratory frequency that’s a part of both the smaller (lower plane or particle) and greater (higher plane as a wave) reality of the same nature and essence. The outer is a continuation of the inner. They’re both comprised of the same organized field of information. 

Mind blooming

All variations are produced through projections where we “act on ourselves” (same field as a state) in another, forming an “interference pattern” as an energetic fusion of complementary opposites. This can be understood by conceptualizing the process used for making a hologram, where a “single beam” of “coherent light” is split into two beams, and one is refracted by a mirror to form a ray of scattered light that’s impressed with an image, while the other is deflected as the original light, scattered to form a ray also, and both are then reunited with each other and infused, forming an interference pattern as a hologram. Our mind is impressed with a 3-D reality in our imagination, and that reality as an “internal representation” is then used as a thematic template (perceptual filters and lens) that’s projected outward forming a corresponding three-dimensional reality on a much larger scale. The 3-D reality produced outwardly from an internal image that serves as a metaphor, is then perceived by the conscious mind as a correlated theme, which is then reabsorbed and translated into a “memory” of itself. The new memory is synthesized back into the greater memory (internal representation) that birthed it as a correlation, and over time are “built-up” through an accumulative process that grows and evolves it through indigenous variations that are all of the same theme, metaphor, and identity.

Memory, like the belief it’s formed out of, is also singular in nature and works by forming a mental filter as a lens we look through to form our perception of reality. We tend to think that we have a whole bunch of memories, only some of which are related to each other, but memory is formed out of our perceptions of the events of our life and how we interpret those events to give them meaning. As we form a memory of an emotionally intense event, it becomes a kind of “core memory” as a “parent pattern” that functions as a “theme” and serves as the means for birthing a multitude of correlated memories. A memory is formed as a representation or metaphorical template for instantly producing more realities of the same nature. As we encounter various new situations, we’re constantly referencing our memories of past events that were similar in nature, and when we find one, we pull it up in our mind, and use it as a perceptual lens for producing an instant interpretation of the present event by making it mean the same thing as the past event. In this way we use one memory to shape another memory to be of a similar theme, and as we process our experiences, we synthesize them back into the core memory they evolved out of, upgrading it accordingly. We use one memory to produce an infinite number of similar memories, and we accumulate and build up the same type of experiences over the course of our lifetime.

Thought Transference

Reality is a Paradox Born out of Complementary Opposites

A belief isn’t formed out of an objective, factual event or set of circumstances, it’s formed as the meaning we give them by how we interpret them. Many people make statements like “I’ll believe it when I see it”, which is an oxymoron, because we only see what we believe exists. When we view life, which is in fact a projection of our own mind, as being separate and apart from us in the objective sense, we’re constantly caught up in what seems like an irreconcilable paradox. We fail to recognize in the most basic sense that our mind and the reality produced by it through our perception, is a unified whole as a coherent state in which every aspect of it reflects the whole. It’s not about attempting to identify what aspect of our reality is a belief and what’s not (as if we could), it’s about recognizing that it’s our “mind” that’s producing all of it. We pull apart two aspects that make up a single whole, and pose one against the other, defending one by how it exists in contrast to itself in the other, and as a result, we stay locked within a delusion of our own making. We abstract a part from the whole that birthed it and make it into a whole in itself, while imagining its independent of the system we abstracted it from that birthed and sustained it.

We take an idea as a “seed for reality”, and as we begin thinking about it, we steadily define it by shaping it with specific attributes and qualities, forming it into a sensory reality as an internal experience of it. Experience comes through a synchronized process of stimulus-response that gives rise to a confluent effect. As we shape an idea in our mind by imbuing it with certain qualities and characteristics, it determines how it functions as a mode of consciousness and naturally behaves as a part of the greater system within which it was formed. As we focus on an idea and develop it with sensory characteristics it comes alive inside our mind and works through the nervous system to stimulate the energetic centers correlated with the endocrine glands, generating equivalent hormones as chemical messengers that act to regulate our “state” by generating and giving rise to complementary emotions. The idea formed in our mind as a hologram (mental construct) acts to invoke a corresponding emotion that animates it with life and determines how it expresses to form a specific type of experience. We are not the thought or emotion itself, we’re the Soul that’s generating them as a combination of thought, feeling, and emotion organized as a relationship between complementary aspects of our self.

How we Program Our Subconscious as a Request for Experience

As we build an idea into a thought-form by adapting it to our personal model, we modify it into a new possibility that’s unique to us as a personal creation. We form the idea as a “pattern” out of our essence (mind-stuff), resulting in a kind of “light-body” as a etheric blueprint that’s magnetized with our soul’s signature as our vibratory frequency. The reformation makes it congruent as a natural part of our outer world. We “magnetize it” by infusing it with sensation that stimulates the nerve centers of our body to produce an equivalent emotion as the chemistry of our body. The emotions become the animating force that brings it to life by causing it to vibrate at the frequency of the idea as a pattern where it acts as a template for organizing the outer essence to be of the same mental construct as the inner through energetic sympathy. Vibration as a living pattern works through polarity as resonance, where the vibration created on the inner plane organizes the light-matrix of the outer plane to vibrate in harmony with it. The life-energy infused in the mental-idea is projected outwards where it “enters into” (is absorbed by) all other particles of light that are complementary to it and can act to “conceive it” and produce it’s offspring as a correlating idea, and they begin resonating harmoniously as a coherent state. The idea exists on the inner plane as a symbolic idea in the form of an image, picture, or scenario, where it can be easily adapted through a chain of association to form a corresponding idea of the same kind and type, and sets the stage necessary for acting the idea out as an experience.

As we bring an idea to life on the inner planes by magnetizing it with sensation as an experience, the image is imprinted on our subconscious mind as a “pattern” for structuring the outer reality to be the stage and background for playing the idea out as an experience that bridges the inner with the outer. In much the same way a single concentrated beam of light (field of coherent energy) is split into two beams, where one is imprinted with the image as a thematic pattern, and the primary one that doesn’t contain an image is then merged back into itself where it acts to form the image into a 3-dimensional reality, and together, they lay the groundwork for “experiencing” the idea. The outer is a “reflection” of the inner, which means it’s the opposite aspect necessary to experience the inner aspect through relating and contrasting. This is where many get confused in terms of how we act to create our experiences, which are always experiences of our “self”. Not as a physical being looking out at disjoined material circumstances, but as a “state of mind” that give rise to “thoughts” imbued with qualities and feelings that naturally give birth to reality as the experience of our thoughts.

We create our life story based out of “meaning” and meaning forms “themes for certain types of experience”. If we perceive ourselves as being “good”, we have to enter into relationship with our complementary opposite as “bad” to compare and define ourselves as the opposite. Our idea of what bad means is defined simultaneously by what we imagine good to be. They’re both polar opposites of the same thing, and each is shaped by how it exists in relationship with the other, and one serves to define and give life to the other. Opposites act to shape each other through relating and contrasting. As I form a relationship with what I deem to be bad, it stimulates all the same qualities within me, bringing them into an active state. I can only create myself to be the opposite by “choosing not to allow the traits and behaviors associated with bad” to take hold within me and begin determining my thoughts and actions. By comparing myself in relation to bad, I can define myself as it’s opposite, and make decisions that simultaneously culminate “good” and take the actions necessary to become the expression of goodness.

If I desire to develop myself as being courageous by first forming an image of myself as such, I act to naturally attract and engage in situations that invoke fear and tempt me with cowardice, which is the opposite of courage. I must remain aware of what’s happening inside of me when I feel afraid so I can “choose” to be courageous instead, and step into my fears with a sense of determination and confidence. So as soon as I decide to develop the quality of courage, I also become a magnet for situations that make me feel afraid because it’s only through feeling afraid that I can also experience courage. This is why a “victim” always acts to attract and is attracted to those who will act to “victimize them”. Otherwise, they can’t create themselves by telling a story about being a victim. If we have low self-worth and harbor feelings of inferiority, we always end up in relationship with those who treat us in a way that fosters and validates our feeling of inferiority. Whatever belief we form about ourselves we act to naturally form the reality of our belief by consistently engaging in various relationships with people who will naturally play a complementary role in creating the same type of experience with us. Those who won’t play a supporting role, we’re not attracted to and usually have no interest in, or as soon as we get into a relationship with them, we act in ways that are designed to naturally provoke and bring out the behaviors we need them to display in order to sustain our beliefs about ourselves.

We form a joint reality of the same idea as a shared theme with those who compliment us energetically through shared qualities and characteristics that act to naturally play out the same story. If we remain in an unconscious state within our own life, feeling as if we have no control over who we become and what happens to us because we’re always reacting to the behaviors of others and the circumstances that we’ve been unwillingly cast into, then we simply play out the beliefs formed through our formative conditioning from an unaware state. We honestly don’t know any better and fail to realize in the most basic sense that we have the power to change our life by learning how to control our own thoughts and emotions. Once we begin realizing at some point along the way that we have the innate ability to create our self and our life experiences, we begin identifying with our true self as our higher soul, which exists as a higher level of consciousness, and we step outside of the delusions of our beliefs altogether, and no longer act on ourselves to validate them by building our reality out of them.
