Everything in the material world is comprised of energy as vibration. All vibration is formed by movement as an interaction between complementary opposites of the same thing. All vibration consists of information and a self-organizing mechanism that organizes the information into a dynamic geometric pattern as a virtual reality that becomes the holographic blueprint for constructing the material equivalent as a growth and accumulative process. Every idea is a vibratory pattern that exists as pairs of opposites that form a scale as a range of vibration that forms a frequency. Every vibratory frequency originates on the mental plane as a “state of mind” composed of qualities of consciousness that shape us and our outer reality to be a part of the same idea on different scales. Vibration as light (photons) exists as both a wave and a particle simultaneously, and forms both the inner and outer, the individual and its outer reality, the local and non-local mind as being of the same pattern as a theme played out on different scales and levels of complexity. The wave exists in a state of pure potential as all of the infinite possibilities associated with that vibratory theme at a non-local level. The particle of that same frequency exists as the physical body that the mind (wave/field) bonds to through resonance and sympathetic induction, and becomes located at a specific point within the outer realm of the same potential reality.
Vibration operates on multiple planes simultaneously with the same patterning as an archetypal idea that’s made into a whole thematic reality. Vibration contains an archetype (idea) as a feeling state, that produces thoughts of the same nature as concepts and internal representations that become the basis for creating it as a living scenario. Whatever reality is formed in the mind as the expression of the idea that’s adapted to a specific situation or set of circumstances, stimulates an emotional response to that reality which resonates through the chakra system of the subtle body, stimulating the associated endocrine glands of the physical body producing chemistry that adjusts it to the same vibratory state as the mind. There’s a constant back and forth flow of energy as information between the body and mind, keeping them both in a harmonious state of vibratory coherence.
This vibration as a feeling originates in the mind on the mental plane, and it’s within that plane that it’s altered, regulated, or transmuted altogether. The spiritual plane of pure consciousness (mind) exists in polarity with the astral plane of the soul (emotion), which acts as a medium between the spiritual plane and the material plane, and is comprised of combination of both. The astral plane of the soul, also exists in polarity with the material plane as it’s complementary opposite, which is what bonds it to the physical body, and acts to stimulate the matter of the body into activity and operates it through a back and forth motion as a self-perpetuating flow of conscious energy that simultaneously influence, modify, and transmute each other.
The emotions of the body (chemistry as a state) in turn produce like-thoughts as a perception of the reality they indicate, which produces a feeling state as a mood. All vibration moves between opposite poles of the same idea or thing as contrasting qualities and characteristics. An idea as a state-of-mind exists in polarity (dual aspects) as an electromagnetic interaction with itself from opposite perspectives. These complementary opposites are identical in nature, and vary only in “degrees”, not in “kind” or type. This range of vibration as degrees of opposites create and form a scale, much like a musical scale that we move along in stages that alter our state from a negative aspect (lower vibration) to the positive aspect (highest vibration) by varying degrees as a gradual movement of gradients. This gradient scale is comprised of very fine lines that are somewhat obscure as to where one degree or quality ends and the other begins.
For example: Our state of mind as a quality of consciousness can be applied to the same thing to determine how we experience it. Love and hate are the same idea (pattern), separated only by degrees that move through varying levels of love into like, with different levels of liking something, into dislike and then into hatred, which again, exist at different levels and degrees of intensity. The positive end of love, always acts to attract us and draw us into it, and the opposite or negative of hate repulses us, and causes us to move away from it. Yet on the purely mental plane, hatred can consume us with an equal degree as love can. We can spend more time dwelling in and thinking about what we hate, dislike, and don’t want, than we do thinking about and dwelling in what we love, like, and want. This is why from a psychological perspective we say that you can’t truly hate someone or something unless you’ve also loved them.
A good way of understanding this principle in practical terms, is thru the idea of opposites of the same thing as degrees of differences, such as hot (fire) and cold (water), which together form an infinite number of “degrees” as “states” that move from one extreme to the other of the same thing. It’s hard to tell where heat ends and cold begins, because it exists as a range rather than a finite point. The same principle applies to light and dark, large and small, black and white, high and low, and positive and negative. All are of the same thing, varying only in degrees of vibration as a range or unified frequency. A frequency as a “range” between extremes of the same thing, is merely a mode and rate of vibration.
This same principle works on the mental plane with opposites such as good and bad, love and hate, fear and courage, greed and charity, lust and chastity, and is the principle expressed in the seven deadly sins (errors in being) and the contrary seven heavenly virtues (divine way of being). These vices and virtues are opposing each other, and provide the key for understanding true transformation, not from one thing to another, or changing in class or kind, but moving between the positive and negative pole of the same quality or characteristic as embodying the opposite aspect of the same idea.
Transmutation isn’t about completely changing your nature or becoming a different person altogether, but rather changing negative traits into positive ones through an understanding of the principle of polarity and how to apply that knowledge at the practical level (bringing it into practice) and through discipline and active use of will to act on yourself in a deliberate manner, to transform yourself by altering your vibratory frequency. Our character is primarily developed in two ways, through a form of stimulus – response at the subconscious level of formative conditioning, and through a conscious decision that we willfully act out as a creative process that intentionally develops us through those qualities as a way of being. We’re always in the process of developing and becoming a certain way, it’s only a question of whether we’re doing it with awareness, or through a lack of awareness.
The goal of spiritual development is to transmute yourself through self-mastery by purifying your moral character from a lower, animalistic and ignorant and unconscious state, to a higher, divine and intelligent state. To move from selfishness and corruption to selflessness and purity. To use the power of our mind as will to intentionally change our own perceptions, thoughts, and behaviors to those that are constructive, positively creative, and beneficial in raising our vibration to a higher level which is necessary for ascending to higher dimensions through induction as vibratory sympathy or being of the same nature and likeness as the frequency of the higher dimensions. All higher vibration involves greater forms of consciousness as intelligence that’s creative and life affirming in nature, rather than destructive and killing life.
Higher dimensions, often referred to as heaven or nirvana, are pristine paradises, which can only be created and maintained by those of the mind-set and natural behaviors that produce and sustain it in that state. Those who are of a lower, earthly, animalistic and unconscious mind-set, are destructive, unaware of the consequences of their actions, and lack the willpower and discipline to curb their own appetites and corrupting tendencies. They mindlessly act or participate in destroying and killing their own environment through sheer ignorance, a detachment from the reality of their actions, simply not caring, and the inability to direct their own mind by refraining from primal urges.
Through an understanding of the Law of Polarity we can work on ourselves to transform ourselves to a higher, creative way of being. We can alter our state, which will simultaneously alter our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. We can recognize all traits that are being negatively expressed, and intentionally invoke the state necessary to move them to a positive expression of the same idea. We can transform fear by employing courage in its place and willfully acting it out. We can transform hatred into love, by looking through the eyes of love and seeking first to understand instead of judging and condemning. By learning how to produce and maintain our own state of mind, we can begin changing behaviors and perceptions that are negative in nature to the positive expression of the same idea and transform our experience of living from one of pain and suffering to one of joy and well-being.
