What is Thought? The Local and Non-local Mind

      Thought comes as the activity of the mind, not just as the verbal thought of what we call the conscious mind which comes primarily as what we call “brain function”, but also through the other aspects of the mind as feelings, images, and direct experience. Naturally, just as all aspects of the mind work together to form a single operation, all levels of thought work together to form what we could call a full sensory experience of reality. The mind, which exists both locally (located in a body) and non-locally (a part of the greater outer reality) on the material plane, forms both the subconscious and the self-conscious mind which work together to form both the inner and outer reality through which they form the “self” as a coherent being. The subconscious mind, which we also think of as the “body consciousness”, while being located in the body is also connected to the outer reality, and exists outside of time because it’s always present and in the moment, whereas the self-conscious mind as the “thinking mind”, exists primarily within time and is hardly ever actually present, and instead lives out of dream-like illusions as rehashing memories of the past, and projecting ideas of the past into the future as a means of trying to anticipate what’s to come.

The self-conscious mind, which is birthed fully within the body as our brain-consciousness, is abstract in nature and produces what we tend to think of as “thought” as the verbal, talking form that speaks in a learned language that’s abstract and subjective in nature. This form of thought creates our internal dialogue as a form of always talking to ourselves by explaining, describing, and repeatedly replaying the same type of scripts over and over. The subconscious mind, which exists both inside the body and as part of the environment, is intuitive in nature, emotionally driven, and experience oriented and “thinks” in terms of sensory information and as images, metaphors, and analogies that comes as whole ideas that form both inner and outer realities. As the conscious mind speaks to itself in words as internal dialogue, the subconscious mind interprets the words by turning them into corresponding sensory realities as an inner imagining. This inner imagining formed from abstract words creates thought as form, producing “thought-forms” as ideas that form the basis for living outer realities that give us certain types of experience.

As we think we construct whole realities in our mind’s eye, and these imaginary realities become the basis for both verbal thought and outward speech. Whatever we say outwardly to others begins as an inner thought of some form. The inner mind and outer mind both work on each other to form experiences of reality. When thoughts come to us from an outside source, they come as feelings that have whole ideas in them that we then “think about” and construct into a living concept as a possible reality as the means of comprehending them. When thoughts seemingly come from an internal source, they come as a memory of some kind that we replay in our mind’s eye, altering them slightly by adapting them to our current situation as a way of repeating the same experience of the past in the present. As we think, we form an emotional reaction to our own thoughts, and the emotion shapes the nature of the reality we create out of our thoughts. Likewise, we can be triggered by an emotion (from outside), which acts to control our thoughts and determines what we think about as the reality or memory associated to the emotion. Verbal thought and emotion are always connected as correspondences to each other, and one causes the other, or acts to produce and determine the other.

As we think, we do, and as we do we become. We become by way of our thoughts. Our style, type, and class of thinking are how we work on ourselves to shape ourselves. We become by way of our own stories about things. What we tell ourselves about things forms an inner reality as an imagining that’s then “looked through” or superimposed over the outer reality and used to reorganize it to fit or match out thoughts about it. What we think and form into a reality in our mind we believe, because it’s our creation and we form an understanding of things by turning them into a reality. When we turn an idea into a reality, it’s believable because it appears real to us. We present it to ourselves in a way that makes it seem real. Anything that we can imagine, we can make real as an outer experience. We believe it because we perceive it as reality, as being real and tangible, and don’t realize that what we call reality, in the most basic sense of the idea, is an illusion as a fabrication of the mind, and that every individual mind forms its own unique version of the same reality as a perception of it.

We exist and have our being by way of our own thoughts and “style of thinking” which emerges spontaneously as the natural composition of our mental paradigm or vibratory frequency. The structure of our mind as a frequency forms a dynamic series of interlaced patterns that are all of the same nature and together form a congruent and consistent experience of life as a form of story-line we’re always in the process of telling ourselves (notice this word is always plural). We tell ourselves a story about things as a way of making them mean something. It’s through the meaning things have for us that we form our experience of them, and our experiences shape us. We tell ourselves a story about things as a way of making sense of them, that give them meaning, and meaning, a product of the mind, operates simultaneously on three different levels – it means something about others, the way the world is, and about ourselves in relationship with it.

As we create our experience of ourselves within our own story, we create the rest of the world through the relationship we form with ourselves in everything else. We make other people out to be of the same nature as we are through our judgment of them and by perceiving them through our mental filters, emotional states, and criteria, and remake them to be of the same nature as we are by fitting them into our model by how we exist in relationship with them by contrasting, comparing, and relating. We can only know “who we are” by how we contrast and relate to others and the world in general. Because we’re always viewing the world through our own mind and mental paradigm, we only see and comprehend in others and events what can be explained, described, and therefore known through our story about them. We never really see others as they actually are, but rather as we remake them in our own image. We interpret them to be like us (of the same story) and fit into our reality as a cohesive aspect of it.

Thought is the means through which we create subjective realities out of neutral and objective realities as the natural expression and activity of the mind. The mind is a reality generating mechanism. It generates the body that it then inhabits and operates through, and produces the illusion of the outer reality as a reflection of the inner nature, as a means of “experiencing itself” in relationship with itself (same vibration) in everything else. The “self” separates and becomes another that exists outside of an apart from it, then experiences itself through the interaction as both a perception of the other as being the “same as it is”, or being different (complementary), then interacts with itself (its own image) in the other, defining and shaping itself through the experience it brings. Likewise, our perception of reality results as the outer stage or scenario of our story, and is based primarily on the illusion we form “as” our personal reality that’s projected outward and superimposed over (a lens we look through) the abstract reality, rearranging it based on the meaning we give it, conforming it to fit our story about it.

Everything in what we perceive as the outer world is a dream-like illusion produced by our mind as our thoughts about it. Thought forms reality. As we think, we believe, and as we believe, so it is. As we think, we become by way of our thoughts. All reality is in fact subjective in nature, because it’s composed, viewed, and experienced by the mind perceiving it, and therefore adapted, altered, and modified to be of the same nature or basic patterning as a frequency. Nature as the outer world is a projection and reflection of the inner nature of the mind. As we think we create ourselves, others, and the world at large. We form a new interpretation out of a universal theme. Because our thoughts produce living realities, we believe in them and see them as true because they appear real to us. Whatever can be made real is true to the mind creating it.

Truth itself doesn’t exist in the outer reality, or the inner reality, but rather in the Laws governing the activities of the mind that produces both as an interaction with itself on different planes, creating a variation each time it expresses “as” something specific. It’s not the product of the thought that’s real, but the process through which thought is generated and made real as an outer reality. All reality in and of itself is an illusion as a dream produced by the mind. The outer reality is created first as the original creation of the greater, universal mind, then as the group mind of humanity (Earth), and then of the individual mind that’s perceiving it from a certain perspective and identity located within a body. The mind itself is true, not the reality that it produces, which is temporary in nature, and varies in each aspect that together make up the greater whole. We are all living in a reality of our own making, that while it is composed of the same fundamental elements for everyone, it appears in a unique form, with different emphasis, embellishments, and story-line for every individual mind which creates a subjective reality as a form of parallel reality that coexists simultaneously within an infinite number of realities without interfering, canceling out, or altering each other.

Those who share the same type of reality, who are telling the same type of story, who vibrate at the same frequency, attract, enter into a relationship of some form, and co-create a shared reality as a joint-experience. Those of a different reality, who are telling a different type of story that’s not a part of or compatible with ours, are deflected, repulsed, not noticed, or ignored all together. They simply exist in the background. We attract to our complementary opposite in everything else, and together form a whole as playing different parts in the same story as a type of reality. We create and share the same type of reality through an interaction that comingles and congruently integrates feelings, thoughts, and emotions to form a unique variation while still holding true to the basic theme of our story. No matter what type of relationships we form, we’re always telling the same type of story with people who can play a part in our story.

Becoming Self-Aware – Mastering the Power of the Spoken Word

mental energy
One of the most powerful things you can do to become self-aware is to begin taking conscious control of what you say. By becoming aware of what we say or what we tend to talk about, we can become aware of our own style of thinking. Words that make up the sentences that we speak have the power to shape visual imagery associated with them, which acts to program our subconscious mind to produce them as a physical manifestation or outer experience. What we talk about, and the attitude and stories we form by how we talk, reveal in very specific terms what our “model of the world” is, and how we use our model to fashion our realities and shape ourselves by way of those realities. Words that are spoken, bring the words as internal thoughts outward in a form of communication that elicits the same type of realities in whomever we’re speaking to. Words form the very basis of our thinking and act to shapes ideas as sound into realities internally, that are then used to express and call forth those realities externally by actively speaking them.

 
While many people believe that what they think and talk about is an accurate depiction and expression of a factual reality, and that because of this they’re communicating truthfully, the fact is, nothing could be further from the truth. Our perception of life and reality outside of us is an interpretation that remolds it to be “like us”. Our mind as a paradigm or thematic pattern, takes in information from the outside world and translates it into a story-line as a personalization of it. We’re always “within” our mind’s paradigm looking out, and only “see” in the external world what matches our internal world and can be explained, described, and understood using our paradigm. We literally abstract or pull out of any situation the parts and aspects that resonate with our model, then recompose those aspects to tell a story out of them as a way of experiencing them. Because of this unique feature of the human mind, every single person that’s apart of the same outer reality or event, will form a unique and different experience of it. If five people participate in the same thing, you’ll get five distinct interpretations, all of which “noticed” different things, and created a story out of it by how they put those abstract aspects together in a cohesive way to experience them in a consistent manner so they make sense with all of their experiences. We never experience things or other people as they are, but as we remake them.

energy design

The words we speak are formed into internal imagery that gives life to them as actual and real possibilities. Our thoughts, which come as an inner voice, utilizes our imagination which forms them into possible outer realities based on what memories or ideas we’ve associated to they words themselves. Thoughts are the seeds for producing whole realities, first internally as reliving and recombining memories, forming conceptualizations and internal representations as our creative style for expression. Not only do we think the same type of thoughts repeatedly, but we imagine the same type of scenarios over and over, different only as the modifications necessary to apply them to various outer circumstances. While they vary in application, they remain cohesive and consistent in the theme that’s used to shape them. As we think we create. Our thoughts as internal dialogue are the active use of our will. What we think about we’re simultaneously in the process of creating as our experiences. What you think and speak is not an accurate account of your life, but your life is a direct reflection of your thoughts. All reality as we know it is subject to the individual experiencing it. The inner exists in relationship to the outer, and turns universal and objective reality into a personal subjective reality as the experience of it.

 
As you speak you call forth the reality inherent in your words. As you talk to others, the words that you use and the attitude you speak them with, stimulate in them the same type of reality, and they become a co-creator in that reality. By telling them what life is like for us, we form an image of ourselves in their mind by how they think about what we’re saying. As they picture what we’re saying, they form a similar interpretation, and share in our beliefs about ourselves. This subjective reality as a personalization forms a belief system that’s projected and superimposed over our outer reality as a way of seeing, experiencing, and creating only what matches our belief about it. This is why beliefs are difficult to identify from truth, because they’re our own creation and form the very foundation for how we create our experiences as our basic outer perception.

 
One of the best ways to begin gaining an in-depth insight into your own mind, is to simply begin the practice of objectively listening or witnessing what you say to others. As you talk naturally, periodically hesitate, and move out of the associated position of being “in the experience” you’re talking about, and listen to what you just said, and notice what you see in it in terms of the belief system or paradigm you’re living out of. Listen to the reality it indicates. Notice how you’re presenting yourself to others. And simply reflect on it, allowing a chain of associated ideas to take place as a way of following them back to their roots. Notice that as you objectively listen to yourself as being outside of the experience you’re talking about, without emotional attachments, that a whole series of memories as associated ideas will flash through your mind. And again, just observe them, and allow yourself to realize where they come from and gain insight into them, as self-realization. Simultaneously you’ll begin recognizing how your outer expression as verbalizing thoughts reveals what and how you tend to think. What perspective you take to create your own experiences, what it says about you, and who you become by way of it. Don’t judge it or try to explain and justify it, simply witness it as if you were observing or listening to someone else.

water is life

Once you gain the incredible insight listening to yourself brings, you can extend the practice by learning how to think about what you say before you say it. You can move from an unconscious position of automatic and spontaneous communication, to one of thoughtful and deliberate communication. You can begin asking yourself in any situation, what do I want to create by what I’m about to say, and how will what I say and the attitude I say it with, influence the person or situation I’m saying it too? What will they form in their mind based on what I’m saying? What mental impression or mood am I creating by how and what I talk about? What image am I conveying that will form their impression of me, and what type of ideas they automatically associate to me.

 
By viewing words as cause that produces an equal and predictable effect, we can begin using our words to strategically produce a specific affect in others. We can realize that we have the ability to call forth and create whatever we speak as an internal image. We can begin realizing that it’s through communication that we naturally direct the mind of others. Whatever ideas we’re giving life to inside of us by thinking about them, become the thoughts of others by how we express them. We can begin directing other people’s mind’s by learning to direct our own mind. By becoming conscious of this dynamic process of creating through mental influence, we are provided with the means to begin taking control of our own thoughts, and becoming responsible for how we influence people in a direct and indirect manner. We can begin seeing things about ourselves that eluded us before and remained hidden from our direct awareness. We can begin realizing in very clear terms what our mental model is, what attitudes and beliefs govern our life and act to create our experiences, and through this realization we can begin working with them consciously and intentionally through the creative power of choice and will.

Changing Your Vibration through the Law of Polarity and Cultivating the Art of Attention

The-Knowledge-of-the-Planets-Cameron-Gray
Our vibration is our mood or mental state that’s determined by or comes as the expression of feelings, moods, emotions, and behaviors. Whatever we focus on, give our attention to, and think about, modifies our state accordingly. Our will naturally directs our attention, and whatever we place our attention on and think about, changes our vibration as our state of mind. By cultivating the “Art of Attention” by means of exercising your will, you can learn how to control and determine your mood and mental state. It’s pretty easy to notice that what we give attention to and think about creates how we feel as a correspondence. How we feel sets our mood as a kind of tempo and determines what type of things we continue focusing on that are of the same feeling-mood that multiply and amplify it. Whatever mood we’re in determines how we experience the events of our day and what aspects of it we notice, pull out, and use to create our overall experience of any given event or situation.

 
All vibration is movement of conscious energy between poles of opposites. These poles exist as opposite qualities: hot – cold; happy – sad; love – hate; fear – courage; health – illness, and so on. Any mental state and its opposites are merely two poles or extremes of the same thing, separated only by degrees of variation that moves us from one to the other. We can transmute one state into another through a practical understanding of the Law of Polarity. We change our state by first deciding to, then willfully directing our attention to its opposite quality. Don’t waste your time trying to fight, kill, or stamp out a mental state, but instead learn to cultivate its opposite mental state. If you’re possessed by fear, don’t take an attitude of trying to fight the fear, but instead cultivate it’s opposing quality of courage, and in doing so, fear will disappear.

 

transmission
Attention is singular in nature. We can only focus on and give our attention to one thing at a time. Thought we can move from one thing to another, but at any given moment we’re only capable of focusing on and being fully aware of one thing at a time. Whatever we place our attention on and begin thinking about, we develop into whole realities just through thinking itself. Thought is creative and constructive in nature, and by placing our attention on something and beginning to think about it, we build whole realities around it by how we think about it. The mind is the builder and creator of reality. If we’re giving our attention to negative feelings, we grow only the realities that match and express the negativity, propagating and growing it into multiple experiences over and extended period of time. Likewise, by focusing only on the positive in terms of what we want to create and use as the means of creating our experiences out of, we form realities that are positive in nature, while growing and multiplying them.

 
To kill a negative quality, concentrate on the positive of the same quality, and the vibration as a mental state will gradually change from negative to positive, from undesirable to desirable, from destructive to constructive. Whatever aspect of a quality or mental state we focus and concentrate our energy on, we polarize ourselves to. If we focus on the negative, we become polarized to it, and vibrate at that frequency, creating our life experiences out of that state, and ourselves by way of our own self-created experiences. If you have an illness or disease, don’t concentrate on fighting the disease, but rather creating health in its place, and once health is established, the illness disappears. Whatever we give attention to and concentrate on, we give life to, and we energize and vitalize it and participate in actively creating it by thinking about it.

energy design
Whatever we focus on, think about, and imagine as realities or experiences, we align ourselves with, and become a co-creator of that reality. Whatever ideas or memories we choose to nourish and feed with our attention, we use to consciously create our experiences by way of the quality as a state-of-mind that idea produces. Our state of mind has very distinct realities inherent in it, and when we employ that state we act to faithfully create that type of reality as a personal experience. When we’re feeling scared, we focus on what’s causing us to feel scared, think about it in scary terms, run scenarios through our mind of possible realities that will result from it, amplifying and increasing the fear, and tuning ourselves to the vibratory frequency of the fear. This frequency as our mental state, becomes our “perceptual lens” that we “look through” and perceive (see) only what’s of the same vibratory frequency (nature) and can be imagined (remade) in such a way that it systematically produces more of the same fear. Like begets more of that which is like itself. Whatever vibratory frequency we tune ourselves to as our mental state, we become the channel for producing more of the same type of experiences. That quality of consciousness enters into us, becomes us in mind and body, and forms the means through which we perceive and create ourselves by way of it.

 
By changing our focus to one of courage, bravery, and confidence, and cultivating that feeling within us, imagining ourselves acting courageous, we begin feeling different, thinking different, and seeing in a different way. We imagine ourselves being courageous and confident in whatever situation we’re facing, and in doing so, fear no longer exists in us. It’s no longer a part of our reality. It disappears. We become tuned to the vibration of courage as a mental state, and not only experience all of life from this perspective, but also sensing ourselves “as” courageous and begin identifying with that experience of ourselves.

 
By understanding the Law of Vibration and Polarization – we have the formula for learning to use our will to regulate our attention and what we choose to concentrate on. By working consciously with the Law of Polarity we can change our mental state at will, and change our vibratory frequency as a result. By changing your polarity you master your mood, change your mental state, set your disposition, and build up your character from that perspective and through that quality. All pairs of opposites exist in degrees as a variation or gradient range that moves from one to another like a sliding scale. Our mind may be transmuted from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; pole to pole; vibration to vibration, through active and deliberate use of our will.

light flames

By changing our polarity, it not only changes what we see in our others and our environment and how we are influenced by our own perceptions, but also determines our ability to influence others and our environment. We directly affect our environment through our mental state. What we attract and feel attracted to is based on our mental state. How we influence others by our interaction with them, whether silent and energetic or actual, is produced by our mental state, which activates that same mental state in them, which is why we tend to only interact with those who share the same mental state. Our mental state not only determines our reality and what we naturally connect with and interact with all around us, but also determines what we bring out in others, and what reality we serve to co-create by the very attitude through which our behaviors come.

 
Our mental state as our vibratory frequency has a distinct patterning to it as qualities that form characteristics and our disposition as a perspective and tendencies, which sees only what matches the inner state doing the viewing, and determines how we form a basic interpretation of what we’re seeing that reforms it to be like us. To be a product of our vibratory frequency as a mental state that produces an equivalent outer reality. Not in objective and actual terms, but in subjective and experiential terms. Our vibratory frequency determines what stands out in our environment, what we notice and what elements we abstract and use as the basis for telling a story about that matches our mood and serves to express it, giving us a channel for bringing the inner feelings into the outer world as it’s equivalent in form and personality.

 
The most fundamental use of choice and free will comes through what we ‘choose” (whether consciously or unconsciously) to place our attention on and bring to life by thinking about it. As we think about something, whether an idea, memory, wish, or as a means of anticipating something, we merge into and become one with it in mind and body, and serve as the vehicle through which it comes into the world as our reality. Our focus and attention is what directs the spiritual forces as a projection that awakens and draws into us whatever we’re stimulating with our awareness and thought. We merge into and become united with whatever we think about and serve to give it life through us, as us. We become the channel for whatever mood we embody, and the thoughts themselves form the pathway between the inner and the outer that brings the imaginary inner world out into the outer world as a correspondence, by first vibrating to the mood and the form we give it through our thoughts, that stimulate that same vibration in everything around us and allows us to only perceive in everyone and everything else only what matches our vibration and thought-forms.

pentad
By understanding the power of our own mind in creating our experience of reality while creating us through the same mental state, we can learn to take control of our own mind by simply learning to be selective in what we give our attention to, think about, or actively engage in. We can begin by becoming aware of what we tend to focus on and give life to by nurturing it with our attention and allowing it to grow in us like a seed unfolding into a full-fledged reality that we mistaken for real, and whenever we’re thinking about something we don’t want to become, willfully redirect our attention onto what we do want to give life to instead and have as a part of our personal reality.

 
Allow yourself to notice that what you focus on and think about determines how you feel and what mood it puts you in. Along with this realization, notice that you can change your mood by simply changing what you’re focused on, giving your attention to, and thinking about. Change your focus, and you change your mood. Change your mood and you change your experience of reality. Change your experience of reality and you change your sense of self, and how you perceive yourself by way of your own self-created experiences. By learning to consciously direct your attention, you can create your state, regulate your vibratory frequency, and become self-determined. By removing your attention from people and ideas, they no longer exist as a part of your world or experience. By placing your attention on what you do want to become one with and create in your life, you take the most fundamental step in the art of self-creation and begin facilitating your own transformative process by mastering your own mind.

Becoming Self-Aware: Learning to Observe Yourself

pentad
The starting point of all forms of Self development begins by becoming ‘aware’ of how your mind functions on a normal basis while you’re not tending it, or realizing what’s happening internally, and why. In order to begin observing ourselves requires us to learn how to take on a dissociated position as a form of “second person perspective”. We move outside of the direct experience we’re always involved in with our own internal dialoguing and feelings, and we simply take a perspective of observing our natural thoughts, and the natural processes that are always taking place within us as the basis for creating our everyday, moment by moment experiences as a relationship and interaction with everyone and everything around us. We’re constantly creating our life experiences by how we feel, think, and what memories we use as templates for rerunning and reforming our present experiences to mean the same thing, and be about the same thing as our past experiences.

 
The first key to all forms of introspection, self-reflection, and self-observation, is to realize that at no point in the process do we judge ourselves for what we feel and think, nor do we ever get involved in the dialogue of judging, explaining or justifying what we think, why we’re thinking it, and what we do. Because strangely enough, what you’ll find is that just as we defend our perspectives and behaviors to others, there’s an aspect of our internal dialogue that even justifies to ourselves why we think and do what we do as a means of making it okay, which allows us to “keep it”. Our goal here, in self-reflecting, is taking an objective perspective to simply begin realizing what type of thoughts we think on a regular basis, for no particular reason, or as a part of redundant thoughts born out of a theme we’re always playing out in our mind as a way of interpreting our outer reality by way of our inner reality which comes largely from a completely unaware state of automatic feelings, modes of thinking, and dwelling in memories of some sort that we replay constantly when we’re not focused on anything in particular, as a form of random or entertaining type of thoughts, that are for the most part habitual in nature.

inner light1

To begin this practice, you have to simply make a commitment to it, and remind yourself periodically throughout your day, when it’s convenient, to simply stop what you’re doing, and become aware of what you’ve been thinking about. What type of story we’re you running through your mind, what type of description or explanation were you giving about something, or what memory were you rethinking about? Sometimes we run abstract ideas through our mind from a TV show we watched, a line in a movie, a song that we heard, something someone said to us, an article we read, something we’re curious about, wondering about, or as a form of anticipation of what’s going to happen in a situation much like a form of prophecy. Whatever it is, simply notice what it is, and become aware of it. Allow yourself to simply notice what it is that runs through your mind unattended.

 
As you begin becoming aware of the type of thoughts you tend to think without intention, allow yourself to also recognize what memories you’re always in the process of thinking about and running through your imagination in a variety of scenarios, and that you use to form predictions of the future by reliving them in the present. Stop and observe what ideas you run through your mind as a means of anticipating an event or activity. Then, allow yourself to notice how you “feel” based on what you tend to think about. What emotions and moods you tend to be in as a result of your thinking and imagining. Notice that all memories as a generalized idea that plays out a theme of some sort which have a distinct mood or emotional atmosphere to them. As you replay them, it causes you to feel the same way you felt when you were experiencing the memory. Just by thinking about them, makes you feel the same way. Allow yourself to notice how your thoughts are connected to your feelings. How thoughts and emotions are always connected. When you think about happy experiences, you feel happy. When you think about sad experiences, you feel sad. And how these emotions, feelings, and moods is either what cause you to think about whatever you’re thinking about, or they’re produced because you’re thinking about whatever you’re thinking about.

universal

As you go through your day and someone or something causes an emotional reaction in you, have the awareness to stop in the middle of it, refrain from reacting to it, and simply observe what’s happening inside your body. Notice the distinct sensations you’re feeling in certain parts of your body that have certain qualities to them, such as, a tingling, jolting, buzzy, sinking, butterflies, sharp, dull, painful, arousing, and so on. As you recognize how it makes you feel, also notice what memory you associate the feeling too, and what behavior its prompting you to do. How do you want to act in reaction to it? What natural behavior would it normally cause in you if you weren’t refraining from acting? Notice the connection between an emotional trigger, the memory you associate to it, and the behavior inherent in it. This is what forms “reactions” as unconscious behaviors that are formed from a memory of some sort. Again, don’t judge or try to justify what’s happening, simply notice it. Become aware of it.

 
Also, as you go through your day, allow yourself to notice how the emotional energy of others feels. Become aware that you’re constantly picking up on the emotions of others, and they’re affecting you in a somewhat indirect and subtle, if not very direct manner. Then, as in the previous lessons, allow yourself to notice how their emotions “affect” (or infect) you by entering into or moving through you, and stimulating in you those same emotions and feelings. Become aware of how your body is being stimulated by the emotions being displayed around you. Notice how you can sense the energy of a room just by walking into it from the outside. How the room holds the energy of the people and activities being conducted or experienced by the people within it. And again, simply notice how the emotional atmosphere forms the same type of feelings in you just by being “in it”.

As you become more self-aware, you simultaneously become more aware of others and your environment. You can start becoming aware of what is normally happening inside of you and too you by your environment and your own thoughts. You can become aware of what memories you tend to hang onto and continue living out of that shaping your current perception of things, what you connect to first internally, then externally, and what mood or emotional state you tend to live out of as a result. You can begin becoming aware of how others directly affect and influence you just through the nature of the energy exchange that’s taking place as feelings, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. You can begin shedding light on what’s normally operating in a habitual manner outside of your direct awareness. Just the awareness alone helps you to begin taking conscious control over your own thoughts, imagining, and emotional states.

 
We can only work with what we have a conscious awareness and basic understanding of. Becoming self-aware is the first step to moving into the practices that involve self-mastery by being able to not only control your own state of mind, but being able to direct your life by intentionally using your awareness of how feelings, thoughts, emotions, memories, and what we imagine as live scenarios directly affect how we first create our experiences, then use them as future memories to create more of the same type of experiences. We can obtain a new level of awareness around our relationships and how others act to influence us, what they activate and bring out in us, and how they serve to develop those tendencies in us. By becoming aware of what we were previously unaware of, we can see how it operates on us, through us, and because of us, and we can begin consciously controlling it and redirecting it in a more favorable manner. We can learn how to use positive memories and thoughts to automatically produce a positive state of mind. We learn how to stay present in our life instead of being caught up in endless distractions that keep us unconscious in the most basic sense. As with all things . . . awareness is the key! We can only work with what we’re aware of.

The Power of the Imagination – “Becoming the Author and Main-Star of our own Life”

birth
The imagination is greatly misunderstood by many people, even though we all have one, in terms of its true power. While the imagination can be used in a very creative way to produce and develop new ideas and works of art, it is also used in the more mundane sense to create fantasies as delusions by making up stories about things, or by replaying memories over and over as new variations that keep us always creating out of the past. Either way we use it, it provides a form of mental construct as the preliminary blueprint or thematic template for turning an idea into a physical reality.

 
Many confuse imagining with visualization, and as a result, draw the conclusion that they can’t visualize. Yet everyone can visualize and are doing it all the time through a form of recollection (memory as a mental imprint), or simply conceptualizing an idea as a way grasping it, or playing out possibilities as a form of anticipation. The imagination, while it works largely out of visualization, also works via all the senses, and comes just as readily as hearing something, feeling a certain way, sensing touch, smell, and so on. To imagine something is to create a sensory experience of it. Because senses are interconnected, and one automatically stimulates the others through a chain-of-association, no matter what triggers the imaginative process, a full reality as an inner experience of some sort is what results.

 
Memory or ideas thought about and imagined, come as a form of “invisible-translucent image” that’s similar to a reflection on glass, or the reflection on a dark surface (mirroring quality). We can replay memories in our mind while starring off into the space around us shifting our attention from the actual reality which fades into the background while giving our attention to the imaginary reality taking its place. We then play one reality over the top of the other one. While imaginary realities don’t have near the prominence of the actual outer physical reality, we still feel, see, hear, and recall what we were thinking about in full detail, and they produce a pronounced “internal affect” that colors our outer experiences to be of the same “feeling state”. This quality as more of an invisible, translucent image, that’s superimposed over the outer reality, becomes our “perceptual lens” that we “look through” and use to interpret our outer reality to be of the same nature or thematic idea. Through this translucent imagery as a lens, we restructure our outer reality, by abstracting, illuminating and activating only what matches it and can be used to form the same patterning as a feeling state, while not even noticing the elements that don’t lend themselves to expressing and creating more of the same feeling-states. Our attention operates as a form of “activating system” that pulls out what’s of the same idea while causing whatever isn’t to return to a latent, inactive state, and fade into the background. Through this means, we “filter” our outer, objective reality to match our internal imagined reality.

allseeing eye
Whatever we think about and imagine, which simultaneously forms an intention and expectation, becomes the lens as an ordering –organizing mechanism that literally determines what we “see” by how our mind restructures it by forming a personal interpretation of it. Because of this natural ability of the mind, we literally create our own interpretation of reality, and everybody sees something different in the same situation based on this filtering mechanism produced by the imagination as the internal reality that becomes the template for rearranging the outer reality as a reconfiguration, while noticing only the things that can be readily incorporated in the story the internal reality tells, while completely ignoring or simply failing to notice anything that doesn’t naturally lend itself or acts to contradict our story.

 
The imagination is the faculty of the mind that structures a dynamic matrix out of accumulated memory, forming a mental paradigm through the creation and synthesis of the memories it’s comprised of, that transforms the outer to match the inner. The structure of the mind, as its vibratory frequency (corresponding series of interwoven patterns) literally reshapes the outer, objective and neutral reality, to be the same through how it’s interpreted to tell the same story that the paradigm is designed (structured) to tell. We first create our experiences out of our paradigm based on synthesizing accumulated memory, forming them into a new memory of the same kind of story, keeping ourselves programmed to the same type of memory as a life theme.

 

Memory is created in the imagination out of an actual event that we reshape, personalizing it, by giving it meaning. The meaning we give it forms the story we tell about it, which simultaneously means the same thing about us, about others, and about the way the world is in general. It defines us, the nature of our relationships, and the perceived conditions we live in. This accumulated memory forms a theme that tells a certain type of story. This thematic story becomes our perceptual filter that only creates more of the same type of experiences over and over, by how we think, what we’re always in the process of telling ourselves, and what we see or don’t see in the world around us. We begin interpreting everything by way of this theme, and then we identify with our own stories which simultaneously shape our identity. After a while, if we’re not telling (living) the same type of story, we don’t know who we are, or how to tell a different story. And so we live out of the same story as a mental projection most, if not all of our life, without ever realizing it’s our “own creation”, formed and kept alive through our imagination. Replayed and imprinted in our mind-field (Astral) that surrounds our body, like a reflection on glass that we look through to form our perception.

 
This is the most basic meaning of karma. We live out of the same type of memories as a storyline that creates us according to the identity required to “live” that story as the author of it and main character in it, that forms our perceptual lens as our paradigm that determines what we see, how we feel, and what story we act naturally to tell. We continue creating out of the same basic type of memory, forming the same realities, relationships, and interactive dynamics because we don’t realize that we’re actually the one creating it, and also, the only one who has the power to change it.

 

We can form purely creative ideas in our imagination that replicate actual memory. Because memory is created and replayed in the imagination and used to create our experiences, by imagining ideas with full sensory enhancement and feeling, we can provide our own mind with new ideas and patterns that will transform and evolve our perceptual lens to be able to tell new kinds of stories. In doing this, we simultaneously evolve our identity to new and higher forms of experience. We can keep ourselves in a constant state of growth rather than settling into a mundane and methodical existence where we live out of the same mind-set for a lifetime, missing the opportunity to create ourselves anew in every moment by learning to operate our own mind and exercising our creative abilities in the most primal sense . . . . by self-creating through our ability to produce virtual memories!

A New Perspective on Sexuality: Love and Sexual Union as Energetic Fusion

Power_Grace

While we tend to look at our sexuality in terms of what we’ve been taught about our own morality, in the ultimate sense, anytime we’re talking about Spiritual ideas, we’re talking in terms of conscious energy that operates according to Universal Laws and Principles. Our ability to self-create by developing our moral character comes by way of how we understand these Laws, what they reveal to us, and how we utilize them as a result. They’re not based on man-made concepts of right and wrong, good or bad, but rather on how energy as qualities of consciousness form and evolve. Marriage, from a spiritual perspective, is only consummated through sexual union, regardless of whether or not a ceremony has been performed and a legal contract drawn up as a result. This is because sexual union is the act of energetic fusion where two people become “as” one.

Love as an energetic principle, is the most fundamental form of resonance and sympathy, where two people of the same “nature” (vibratory frequency), form resonance as an inner stimulus, where their energy enters into and effects each other. It enters into the lower chakras as sexual arousal bathed in feelings of love, adoration and admiration that have a distinct intimate and sensuous quality to them. This forms a chemical reaction which bathes the mind and imagination in a euphoric emotion that’s equivalent to the nature of the stimulation. This is the original “experience” of energetic mingling that acts to initiate an entire process. The sexual act itself, which is deepened when ensued with deep feelings of love and desire, induces a state of surrender as the release of resistance and inhibitions, which build in intensity and peak as an orgasm, is the literal spiritual fusion of two people. This means that we ‘take on’ the same consciousness as emotional qualities that form our perception and influence our behavior as a result. We become “like” each other in character.

Sex is the most basic form of energetic fusion that is not only represented in an analogous manner by the intimacy of the act itself, but by the further recognition that sex ‘changes’ the basic nature of the relationship, as well as both people involved. The same ‘qualities’ as an inner effect follows-through producing the same modifications on multiple levels and in accordance to the laws and principles that govern each level. It acts to not only ‘bond” the people energetically, but also morally – emotionally, psychologically, and thematically in terms of the relationship it establishes as an interactive dynamic and the vibratory make-up of both people as individuals functioning in roles within that dynamic. It’s very easy to see how people change, sometimes drastically, as a result of certain relationships. In some cases this can be so drastic that the individual as their original selves, no longer exist, but are transformed into a variation of some kind based on the combination. They are absorbed by another and become an extension of that person.

Though energetically (soul essence as quality of consciousness) speaking, you always have a dominate and recessive vibration of the same frequency which allows for natural entrainment that operates according to the same principle as hypnosis, in some cases, the dominant person completely absorbs the will of the weaker, and readily commands it through the psychological undertones of the relationship that works through weaknesses, shortcomings, and vices of the individual. Relationships are always based on shared tendencies as behaviors that become the basis for the underlying interaction, which stimulates and brings forth the same qualities in both people, that are developed and strengthened through the interaction which creates a joint-reality out of them as an expression of the shared characteristics of both people. Whatever gets stimulated, called forth, and used to create, becomes strengthened as a fundamental character trait. When the dominant force absorbs the weaker force through the qualities they share – the stronger one is further strengthened by literally feeding off of the weaker through submission, depleting the weaker even further, deepening their weakness and increasing their ability to be controlled.

What this tells us, if we care to look at it from an objective perspective, is that anytime we have sex with someone, regardless of whether or not love is involved, we are ‘taking on’ the morality (energetic vibration) of that person, which will bear a direct influence of a similar manner on our quality of consciousness, and alter it accordingly. We acquire the same feelings, emotional states, perspective and perceptions, as well as behavioral tendencies of whomever we ‘merge’ with. This is why a Harlot is used to represent moral corruption brought on by ignorance of law and the inability to resist (weak willed) sexual temptation.

Love

From this perspective, everyone we have sex with, we form a union with, acquire some degree of their consciousness, and it modifies our soul as our energetic essence as a result, which changes how we express. We take-on the same qualities and become more like them, and they become more like us. And for this reason, sex represents a sacred union of Souls, who afterwards are considered – viewed as – one person (take the same name), of the same energetic nature. Furthermore, not only do we acquire the energetic essence of anyone we have sex with, but we acquire the residue of everyone they’ve had sex with, which is infused in their energy also. Like all things in life which operate according to law, it’s a building – accumulative process of growth as evolving through constant modifications that we create and bring on ourselves through our choices and actions.

When entering into a relationship of any kind, but especially a romantic one that could lead to sex, pay close attention to how you feel, what’s being stimulated in you and brought out through the nature of the interaction itself, and ask yourself, what is this going to develop in you, and how is it going to grow you accordingly? If it brings out fears and negative feelings that express as negative character traits, then that’s showing you the morality inherent in the relationship that you will not only acquire more of and will strengthened in you through interaction, but also the true character of the person themselves. Energy is known through feelings as states. States have whole realities inherent in them as thematic dramas that play out specific types of stories. Whenever two people come together and begin establishing a relationship, a pattern begins forming as the thematic dynamic that the relationship will naturally serve to act out. Therefore, it’s a good idea to withhold from having sex until you both know each other and have a real sense of the nature of the relationship and whether or not it will serve to grow you in desirable ways, or regress you by bringing out undesirable traits.

Emotional Thoughts Transform us to the Same Vibratory Frequency

Transcendence

A basic Principle of the mind is that it doesn’t know how to process a negative command. What this means is that it doesn’t work by way of being told what “not” to do, but rather by suggesting what “to” do. It simply holds an idea as a suggestion within the mind’s eye, and begins developing it by thinking about it. We then have an emotional response to the thoughts, which becomes the determining factor of how the thought is developed to create meaning through a story. The emotional component is one of the most important features because it forms the meaning the idea takes on which becomes the nature of the experience we have, which subliminally drives our behavior as an expression of the idea, as well as spawning other ideas of a similar nature with the connecting point being the emotional quality itself.

 

The mind as energetic essence is exquisitely sophisticated. The greater aspect of the mind, the subconscious and Higher-Conscious, as two-thirds of the mind, is slippery, elusive and impressionistic making it hard to fully realize. This is because not only is it primarily unconscious (functions outside our awareness), but it also perceives and communicates by different means and by using a different language than the conscious mind. It works out of feelings, ideas, emotions, images and symbolic metaphors that intuitively invoke a whole chain of associations. It exists in a state of unity and synthesis as a fully synchronized relationship with our environment. It doesn’t perceive itself as separate and apart from everything like the conscious mind does, but rather senses itself as the same thing. The true meaning of the Quintessence isn’t mind over matter necessarily, but rather matter as existing within the mind, of the same essence as the mind.

fibanaci man

The conscious mind, which is what most of us are aware of, is the perceptual, conceptualizing mind that creates separation as the necessary means of self-perception. The conscious mind is the aspect of the mind that thinks in terms of words as internal dialogue. The word as a conceptual form calls forth life by breathing and vibrating it, by speaking it. All of life was brought forth by the word which moved across the living waters. Emotions give rise to thoughts by motivating them through animation. The spark as an inspired idea, heats the water creating a vapor as a cloud-like formation, creating thought-forms as ghost-like images. The more we think about them with strong emotions, the more defined they become. The more passionately we speak them as a means of expression, the quicker they manifest as a living reality.

 

When an idea as a thought-process is introduced into the mind as a form of suggestion by willingly allowing it in through a passive state, or magnetizing it through curiosity that draws it in through an active state, our mind begins developing it by thinking about it. Our emotional response to our own thoughts infuses the idea with meaning that fashions it as a personal reality. We personalize the idea making it our own, by how we develop it. Because all personal development is from the inside out, what we lend our thoughts to serve to develop us accordingly. We first choose them by allowing them in, and then use our will by imagining them, which floods our system with corresponding chemistry called hormones, that we experience as emotion that aligns and unifies our whole-being to the vibratory quality of the feeling idea. The idea that we imagine literally affects us at the molecular level because it forms a systematized process of correspondences that changes our chemical composition.

ethereal body

Just as our conscious mind serves to program our subconscious mind by how it chooses to use the imagination to create a virtual memory as a surrogate reality, which translates conscious thought into the language of the subconscious as experience, it simultaneously alters the memory of our cells, or our DNA by altering its memory through its indigenous language of chemistry. The body functions at the molecular level as energetic intelligence that formulates corresponding chemistry.

 

Alchemy, the Sacred Art of personal transformation from lower states to higher states of moral perfection that is self-induced and maintained, is the mastery of the mind to direct its own thoughts married to positive emotions that completely reprogram the entire system as an organic correspondence. The key faculty of the mind that codes, decodes and forms a unified interpretation in a variety of languages as analogies and correspondences, is the imagination. How we use our imagination to think about things is intimately creating us at the same time. The imagination as the primary function of the mind that spans the full range of consciousness “is” our personal power of choice and free will. We choose what we think about and it restructures us as a modified state-of-mind that aligns our whole being with the vibratory quality of the idea itself as transformed into personal experience. The internal experience birthed in the imagination becomes the memory that serves as a re-patterning that gives the subconscious a new program to operate out of.

Understanding Laws of the Mind and how we Create Reality “The Mind doesn’t know how to process a Negative”

lost in space
Whatever we focus on and think about, good or bad, we act to create as an internal, personal reality, which strengthens and adds to that reality in the objective sense. Thought is what directs life-force energy, and uses it to give life to the thoughts, growing them into a living reality as an imagined conceptualization. Random thought, given to us as a form of suggestion, plants a seed-idea in our mind, which are readily taken in without resistance, allowed to take hold and grow within us as a full imaginary scenario. We picture ideas as a reality in order to grasp them or get a working understanding of how they function and what they imply as a result. Once we conceptualize them as a living reality, we put them into context of some sort, usually within our own lives, and begin developing them by giving them details, which personalize them by conforming them to us as a form of adaptation that has the potential to modify it into numerous variations as possible applications.

 
Once we form an inner picture of an idea as a virtual reality, we experience an emotional reaction to our own thoughts, which marries that emotion to the thought, and working together we continue to develop it as a modified reality that expresses the emotion within the context of the thought that shapes it through meaning as a story-line that gives it significance. Meaning (emotional thought) is the composer (forms a story) and the significance it has determines how it plays out as a story within the context we imagine it in that produces a meaningful and therefore significant outcome.

 
The reason why the approach to “fighting” or the “war against” any idea never works, and in fact only acts to create more of the idea itself by making it even more prevalent, is because it fails to operate within the natural laws of the mind, which is the builder of realities based on what we focus on, give our attention too, the emotional charge connected to it, and the thought-process they elicit that pictures and develops the very idea you’re trying to vanquish by opposing it. The only purpose identifying a problem has is to determine what the solution would be, or what would serve to counteract or resolve it. Once this is determined, in order to get people to create the idea that resolves the problem, you have to talk about the solution while infusing it with a positive emotional charge that inspires people towards it. By talking about what you “do want” to create, you likewise plant that seeded thought into their minds and they will naturally act to develop it by thinking about it into a believable reality that can be implemented in a practical manner within their everyday life.

molecules of brain
This is a classic example of how we error (sin) when not working within the laws of nature because we fail to understand them and don’t know how to use our own mind, which operates perfectly according to law, to consciously create the desired reality instead of creating more of the very thing we fear and were ultimately traumatized by. By realizing this fully will help you to quit talking and posting endlessly about the problems and what you don’t want more of, and begin instead talking and posting only about the reality you will act as a seed to plant in the minds of others who will serve to develop them based on the attitude and emotion you use as the nature out of which the idea is expressed, to begin increasing it until it becomes a form of mass consciousness that eventually takes on a life of it’s own, and begins transforming the global mindset ushering in a new way of thinking. We have to become the change we’re seeking to create by demonstrating it, not acting to amplify the problem itself by complaining about or criticizing it while offering no solution.

 
Often, the reason people don’t talk about positive solutions to worldly problems is because they don’t know what they are. Some don’t even talk about the problems because they’re not sure what they are, and have to wait for someone else to tell or show them what they are, and why they should be concerned about them. Thinking of solutions or alternatives takes a great deal more intelligence and creativity than simply pointing out the problems, which often doesn’t really require much. Many spout out lofty sayings as what they imagine the answer is, yet give no directives or defined methods for actually “doing them”. There is a real tendency amongst people to talk endlessly about the content of an idea, while never discussing the methods for actually doing or applying it. When it comes to “how to do it”, they go silent, sit and stare, or change the subject. Yet the only way an idea can produce an effect is if action is taken based the idea to bring it into the practical realm of everyday life. Ideas that simply remain thoughts or imagined ideas, while they may elevate the mood of a situation, or give someone else an idea that they will develop into a method, seldom ever come into fruition in the material realm, which always requires “doing”.

 
So just allow yourself to quietly contemplate the true power of the spoken word, which is spoken both internally as thought (internal dialogue), as well as externally as the expression of the thought, and train your mind to only think and speak what you want to manifest as a personal reality . . . because it will. The story you tell about anything demonstrates your belief about that idea as a conceptualization that becomes the symbolic template for acting it out in some fashion within the context of your life to turn it into an actual experience. Usually without ever realizing, it’s your own creation. The one that you bought into and acted to willingly create by developing it as a living reality in your own mind, which then became the basis for projecting it onto others and your environment by living the story as if were true . . . making it real (for you anyway). You then tell others your story which gives them the information they need to cooperate in playing a role within your story to co-create it through the nature of how they interact with you, and treat you as a result.

life spiral
Train your mind to only think the thoughts you want to manifest as a personal reality. Only speak the thoughts that you’ve developed into the reality you want by the story they tell, because they will literally act to call forth that reality in the mind of everyone you speak it too. Just the act of speaking elicits mental images as a form of internal computation of what you’re describing as your talking. Once they imagine it based on what you say and how you say it, transforming your words into mental images, they begin participating in co-creating your reality by supporting and validating it, making it appear even more real and true through their cooperation!

 
Words call forth realities by how they are pictured in the imagination. Be aware and creative in your thoughts, and discipline yourself to only think about what you want to make real, and by all means only speak to others the reality you want and are unconsciously choosing to call forth in their minds, making it real for them also. Learn to tell stories that enliven and empower yourself within your own life, and make you out to be the person you want to be. We are always the ones fully responsible for creating who we are by the stories we tell about things that make them mean something. Whatever they mean also means something about us, about others, and the way things are in general. All of which we created within the context of our own mind without fully realizing that that’s what we were doing, and are always in the process of doing! Once you realize that you’re making it all up . . . you might as well make up cool stuff! Don’t you think?

The Nature of a Paradigm Shift – “Altering your State as a shift in Vibratory Frequency”

afterlife-soul
In order to get a functional understanding of what happens during or by way of a paradigm shift, we have to break the idea down into its corresponding aspects, and how they function to create a unified perception that we call “reality” as personal experience. A paradigm represents a perceptual model as a dynamic patterning that’s an interwoven network of ideas (beliefs, values, preferences, memories, etc.) that work in a harmonious manner to co-create a consistent perception as a dynamic theme that incorporates all abstract and ultimately neutral ideas into a congruent story-line that’s fashioned according to the paradigm we use to view it through and the meaning we give things as a result. The meaning which forms the “theme” for the story we tell about something, and the reality we shape as a result, is the formative mechanism that reshapes everything into an offspring of itself by how we incorporate it into an over-all story which provides us with the means to explain or describe it in an attempt to make “sense of it”.

 
A paradigm can be thought of as a state-of-mind that’s a form of vibratory frequency that fluctuates within a set range of potential as a form of wave-length. Our state, which can also be thought of as our feeling-mood, determines what type of memories we’re capable of accessing, and what type of thoughts we think about as analogous to those memories, and what range of emotions we experience in response to them. A frequency as a state-of-mind or mood can only access memories as formed ideas that match that state (are of the same frequency), or that were created while in the same frame of mind, form the basic frequency of our paradigm as a form of habituated or fixated state as our normal state and the “basic model” (patterning) that we look through as a means of producing more of the same type of experiences. Memories serve as a filter for seeing through that (re)interprets everything to mean the same thing, and tell the same type of story about it as a result. In this way we develop themes out of “meaning”, that become our primary theme for telling stories about everything, that express the same meaning making them congruent with (an offspring of) our over-all life-story that we’re always in the process of telling. This is a form of holographic effect (the part is a smaller version of the whole), or how the mind produces fractal patterns as offspring of a larger, parental pattern. Fractals are smaller stories that are of the same nature (theme) as the larger story. It’s the basic law that governs regeneration as self-creation.

 

 

The paradigm we build up and maintain through telling a consistent story as a thematic interpretation that reforms everything to mean what we need it to mean in order to keep telling our story, becomes or reflects our state as a vibratory frequency that only has access to certain types of memory as the reality that the state naturally generates as an expression of it. When we experience a paradigm shift, which only comes through experience of some kind, it simultaneously alters our state of mind, and we obtain access to a different level of memory (thoughts and ideas) as perceptual abilities necessary to support a different type of reality as a modification of our existing model. Our mental model is our ‘perceptual lens’ which acts as a filtering mechanism which abstracts from the environment only what matches it as elements that can be reformed through an interpretation that makes them mean something different by the story we tell about it.

wired brain
A paradigm shift upgrades our model by restructuring it into a new configuration that allows us to view things in a new way and see something different or more as a result. Once a paradigm shift takes place, and we acquire the ability to look at things from a whole new perspective, and we begin building more ideas out of the new perspective, undergoing consistent shifts as a form of evolutionary unfolding or quickening, it alters our overall state as our mental atmosphere, which makes new ideas available, while cutting off other ideas that were formulated and born out of the perception that the old model formed. After a series of shifts that serve to upgrade and modify our current model, the perceptions of the old model fade, become vague and detached, and in some cases forgotten all together.

 
For this reason, once a drastic enough shift has taken place, we can no longer function out of the mentality of our previous version. In some cases when the growth is substantial, you literally lose the memory of that level altogether, and can’t relate to it any more. Because of this factor, as we grow and alter our state as our vibratory frequency, our life-style and situations change as the new behaviors that are formed out of the new perceptions. Relationships that were formed while in the previous paradigm no longer support us, and instead act to hold us back by holding us to the level of consciousness we were at when we developed them, and the group paradigm (behavioral dynamic) that formed as the basis of the relationship itself. Any relationship that doesn’t naturally grow together by the same means or through shared interests has a limited life-span and is ultimately grown beyond and replaced with a sense of alienation, no longer relating to one another.

 
This is very common in relationships of all kinds, but especially in intimate relationships. Personal relationships where one person is growing and developing themselves and thereby undergoing constant change, and the other person isn’t, naturally grow apart. The one that doesn’t grow, or grows in a different way, only acts to hold the other person to the old way of being, and therefore acts to stagnate their growth. This creates a feeling of frustration from being held back or of having the past always brought up as a means of establishing the present to be a continuation or more of the same. Often others won’t allow our growth or don’t understand it and act in ways that attempt to hold us to the same patterns or ways of being that we’ve grown beyond, and so their behaviors towards us no longer stimulate the same response.
wormholes

A paradigm shift as a shift in our vibratory frequency or soul’s mood and mental outlook, creates a ripple effect that ultimately acts to transform all areas of our life to incorporate the modification and begin expressing a new reality as a result. Those dedicated to growth as the attainment and application of knowledge, keep themselves in a constant state of transformation as personal evolution, and their life directly reflects it as constant changes in how they live, feel and think. Because of this they seldom remain in one situation for an extended period of time unless they can grow within that situation and transform it as a correlation to and with themselves.

 
As we grow and transform ourselves, we literally lose access to any memory of the previous state. We can’t remember what we used to feel, or how we thought, or what our perception of something was. We lose touch with our past and our beginning and become totally submerged in the present, while developing and building up ideas as new forms of experience produced by a new level of perception, that allows us to constantly create a new world on a moment-by-moment basis as being “in” the flow of life, which at some point, once growth and transformation has been established as the norm, becomes a way of life. If we begin fixating and living out of definite ideas about things that no longer breathe and grow into endless variations through unique applications, and instead settle into a ritualistic life of mundane habits, we stop the flow of life, stop growing and expanding as an individual, and begin the slow process of dying through mental decay. We begin losing interest in life, fear change, cling mercilessly to security, and quit trying new things or curiously craving new experiences.

 
By transforming our paradigm, altering our state and raising or expanding or vibratory frequency, we tune into different ideas as the building blocks for reality and how we identify with our own creations. You don’t have to overcome your past or keep living out of the same memories while telling the same type of stories and succumbing to unconscious tendencies. All we have to do is attain knowledge consistently through devoted study that undergoes a constant growth process that systematically modifies our paradigm, shifting our vibration, and losing the ability to access old memories, while creating a new form of reality out of new ideas born in the present, that evolve and grow the memories themselves as the new experiences which serve to alter our character and our identity and how we experience (create) life that lives a new kind of story as a natural expression. In this way we grow our soul by evolving it to new and higher states, by employing the knowledge of God as Universal laws that we move into and become one with in order to use them in our own life and transform ourselves by becoming more “god-like”. Because all of life operates according to the same set of laws, by gaining knowledge of and becoming one with God as Law, we create in an intelligent and deliberate manner, instead of creating in error due to ignorance of Natural laws and our ability to use them in a deliberate manner with a sense of awareness.

Just as we transform the memories of this life by growing beyond them to a higher frequency as a general state-of-mind that we act to cultivate, we also change our soul’s memory by the experiences it creates, resolving karma born out of unconscious memory directly associate to state and the reality it produces as an inherent pattern. By shifting our paradigm, we shift our perception of reality, and we “change” the patterns as themes for producing experiences as the creator of that reality. The vibratory state we cultivate and maintain through the acquisition of higher-knowledge, alters the reality produced by our mind as a projection or filters used for interpretation that restructure it into themes that give it meaning and forms stories out of it that express and give life to the meaning, making it “real” as a personal creation.

 
By shifting our paradigm, we shift our whole life experience that’s produced by it, and evolve ourselves accordingly. Yet knowledge that’s only attained in theory, and held as a form of intellectual exercise that’s never actually applied and learned through experience, doesn’t produce an actual paradigm shift. Only the application of that knowledge to produce an experience of it (create by way of it), integrates it instantaneously and systematically modifies all areas of our paradigm that pertain to it. Experience is a synthesizing mechanism that sets or alters our vibration. We only “know” through direct experience and are no longer required to believe. Experience becomes memory as a form of thematic programming that shapes and transforms us according to our own creations as the expression of our paradigm or vibratory patterning as a dynamic matrix for generating personal realities.

 
Experience is what “vibrates us”, not the mere thought or imagining. These merely form the patterns as conceptualization necessary to produce a form of template as a mini-model that provides the means for structuring experience accordingly. Experience is becoming the channel for the knowledge in physical form that creates an experience that forms new memory for creating more of the same type of experiences. We become the channel for knowledge as the expression of it, or the means by which it experiences itself through us, as us. Only experience as present awareness modifies our vibratory frequency as our soul’s essence and becomes an engrained part of us that’s eternal in nature and carried forward into the death state forming the basis for the vibratory frequency of other incarnations as our subconscious mind, predisposition and natural tendencies. The mind is a reality generating machine that produces thematic experiences based on its vibratory frequency and the information carried on that frequency. To change our creative ability to structure experience, we have to change our mind, in the most literal sense of actual perception that forms our natural behavior, all of which are ultimately our own creation.

Creation, Transformation, and Evolution – “Laws that Govern the Creative Process”

Creative Transformation
While many people see creating something from scratch as a ‘new’ creation, to be considerably different than transforming something that already exists into something different, they are in fact, achieved through the same fundamental set of laws that are simply applied in unique ways as variables of the same laws as more of a continuous creative process that serves to expand and evolve the original creation. While we imagine evolution to mean progression as a steady form of improvement, it’s actually a process of adaptation, absorption, and synthesis, which operates in both directions, and can just as easily cause a regression or very undesirable changes.

 
In order to transform an existing system, you have to remix its constitution somehow, reformulating it, by what qualities of consciousness it blends with, takes on, and uses as a means of expressing through those qualities, and recreating itself to be more like those by how it incorporates them. We tend to think of creation as a fixed idea that produces and end product, when in reality it’s a continuous flow of consciousness as information that’s constantly undergoing transformation as a form of shape shifting (reconfiguration) moment-by-moment based on what it enters into relationship with, exists in near proximity of, or willingly and actively chooses to take on as a conscious (aware) form of creation as transformation. Whether we are aware of it, or unaware of it, the process is the same. The object becomes to become aware of the creative laws, and employ them intelligently to determine how you create within your life as a continuous process of evolving into higher and more complex forms.

 
Awareness and an in-depth understanding of the laws of creation give us tools as a process to employ with full awareness in a deliberate manner. To consciously create you have to begin with an ideal as a vision of what you’re creating , then only engage with that same idea as a quality of consciousness that, when incorporated and fully synthesized will act to naturally transform us in desirable ways. It can also be used as an evaluation tool for recognizing what we don’t want to get involved with, that will only serve to move us away from our ideal. By noticing and clearly recognizing the character of the person or entity (business, group, organization, etc.) you’re contemplating getting involved with as a relationship conducted through an interaction of some sort, we can realize how they will influence and reformulate the current situation and naturally act to evolve it accordingly.

 

When we willingly (or without awareness) get involved with people or entities that serve to stimulate and bring out negative qualities, we have to realize, that that’s how they will serve to transform and evolve us as a result of our interaction, which is really an infusing of consciousness as qualities that express in distinct ways and in a consistent manner. The basic laws for creation, represented by the Tetrahedron in Sacred Geometry, is the Monad as the basic mind or paradigm unified as a quality of conscious that holds a vibratory frequency, that separates from itself – projects itself onto the environment, forming the Dyad (energetic form of mitosis), seeing and interacting (resonance as perception) only with what’s of the same nature (quality of consciousness), connected by their centers or ‘inner nature’ as being within the same vibratory range, and blending through the interaction as energetic sympathy (enters into and produces an effect), modifying both to a new vibration as the combination that forms a new constitution and expresses in new and varied ways based on how these shared qualities were integrated by both entities. By blending and mingling energies, a new configuration is formed as behaviors that naturally result from the interaction itself as qualities that are developed into a dynamic pattern as a form of living drama, that’s an exchange of consciousness that equilibrated. This modifies the vibration of both by forming a new pattern as an interference pattern (combination and assimilation of the two) that expresses through that pattern as a joint-reality that’s literally a form of co-creation!

So whatever qualities we embody and express through at any given moment, alters us accordingly. Another way of looking at the Tetragrammation, is as a concentrated attention on a memory as a thematic pattern for reality, infused with strong emotions, formed into a conceptual living-reality in the imagination, making it believable, that serves to program and imprint that image as a representation of a vibration with patterning in it to produce corresponding realities as personal experience, by producing the behaviors (both consciously and unconsciously) that manifest it within our everyday life as an associated or analogous idea. This is because it sets the primary pattern as a thematic idea that works through adaptation within the immediate environment we exist within, and has to use the elements within our environment that are available and of the same nature, in order to compose the same ‘type’ of pattern as the mental image produced in the imagination. The reality produced will give us the same ‘feeling’ as an experience as the quality of consciousness imbued in the imagined form that served to give it life.

 
You see feelings are actually how we experience vibration with patterns of potential realities inherent in them, that we use to first produce the reality as an internal image by embodying the feeling, which once it expresses as the reality of that feeling, multiplying and regenerating, gives us more of that same feeling through the outer experience of it. The feeling as a vibratory frequency that has generative (life) power within it to produce certain types of realities as a thematic composition that attracts, sees, and combines elements that naturally share the same vibration as potential co-creators for reconfiguring all elements into a unique variation, that still holds true to the original theme, and is identified not by what it looks like, but by the feeling we get while having the experience. The feeling as a vibration is the creative mechanism, the expressive power, and the end result. How it ‘shows up’ maybe quite different than how we imagined it, yet the feeling it gives us will be the same. You’ll ‘know it’ by how it feels in the moment when you’re experiencing it. Images or symbolic forms that comprise a structured design are representations of the laws at work to configure a reality by a unique formula that acts as its signature. The reality it represents is identifying its vibratory frequency as the reality it naturally generates as a feeling.

 
To transform an existing creation (reality) that appears fixed or stationary in some way, realize and form a clear picture in your mind of what you want to transform it to, what it would look like as an actual experience, and let the feeling it gives you rise up inside and fill you with its sensations, as you begin resonating with it by identifying with it as being the same (in the experience of it), while noticing the attributes and qualities that comprise its character, then stay centered in those feeling-qualities by anchoring them in your mind and body as a feeling sensation, and using the inner-representation as a mental filter for identifying what’s of the same constitution in others and in your environment, and only engage with what’s of the same character and will act naturally to stimulate and co-create the reality that’s a natural by-product of that character as a congruent mind-set and behaviors.

 
You want to avoid anyone that you’ll have to persuade or convince, because they are not at this level of consciousness or vibration and will always be acting out of their natural constitution and can only serve to influence and alter the situation accordingly. Only engage with and enter into relationship with those of the same character and vision (type of reality) as you’re aiming to consciously create. Don’t make the mistake of pulling somebody along, where you’re acting to modify them to your vision, unless they are a subordinate and don’t play a key role in the creation itself, but are willing to adapt themselves to the situation by playing an indirect role in it. Resistance is never a good thing and usually acts in some way to devolve (or pull you away) you rather than evolve you (move you deeper into it).
