The 4 Elements – The Etheric Body and the Nature of Memory

 

While there are many ways to look at what’s referred to as the 4 Elements, which represent the material realm, one of it’s most primary interpretations is as the very substance of what we think of as the material world as the experience produced by the mind that becomes the basis for memory. Memory, which comes from a reality, has the full building blocks or interactive components of an actual reality even when it exists in it potential or unformed state. The information it’s comprised of and the active force that brings it to life, are the basic “seed” necessary to produce a living reality. A seed as a series of encoded information contains strands of DNA that provide the material as a regenerative process and the spatial blueprints for creating a living form.

The 4 Elements as we’ve come to know them represent Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. These seemingly 4 components only signify 2 actual Elements of Fire and Water, which combined produces Air, and Earth represents the whole combination as a physical reality. In its original depiction, Water and Earth were considered one element, representing three Elements of the Triad or Triangle as the symbol of the 3 aspects of the mind that create an internal reality as the combination of Fire and Water, that was then reflected to produce the outward reality, symbolized by the number 4, or the Tetrad. Fire and Water are symbolic of the masculine and feminine polar aspects of Spirit as a unification. Spirit is traditionally represented as Air or breath. All of Life as we know it is comprised of the 2 Elements of “Yin and Yang”, and the 2 correspondences they form as their offspring which is the combination of them to produce material form.4 elementThe 4 Elements also form the Tetragrammaton, as the sacred name of God, commonly spelled “YHVH”, or YOD-HE-VAU-HE, where Yod represents Fire or Will, He represents Air as intellect, Vau represents Water as Feeling, and the second He represents Earth as the manifestation of will. This spelling, where only two letters are different or unique, though similar in structure to each other (Y V), and two are repeats (H H), is significant of the idea that only 2 true Elements exist as the single or unified constitution of the One- Spirit, and the other two are correspondences as the inner and outer reflection. These can also be seen as representing idea, thought, feeling, and action, which are always unified and create an experience of reality, both internally and externally. They are also always comprised to form a memory which either comes as the result of the manifested idea as the end result, or as the basis used for creating the outer experience as a material reality. Memory is both the beginning and the end, the creator, the outer experience as an event, and the one having the experience. We create our present experiences out of the accumulation of our past experiences as memory. Everything we learn, we acquire as a memory either as an imagined concept of an idea that forms it into an inner reality as a memory, or as an actual experience that contained a lesson and came about by experimenting. Notice that experiment and experience are almost the same word.

When we contemplate an idea and begin thinking about it, we form it into an internal conceptualization as an actual experience of the idea as a reality, or we form an internal representation as a metaphor that serves as a symbolic correspondence. Both of these are formed in our mind in much the same way we construct an actual memory, or replay it as a way of reliving it. There’s no actual difference between a memory created in the imagination of an idea, or one created through an actual event, outside of the fact that the actual event had significantly intense feelings and emotions associated with them. The only memories we attain in a detailed manner from our life experiences, are ones that had a significant emotional impact. The emotion is what forms the structure of the memory in terms of how we interpret it to form a story that we tell ourselves about why it happened and what it means.

Memories are formed out of a combination of feeling sensations, emotions, and thoughts that produced distinct actions based on them. The memory, which is in reality a personalized interpretation of an outer neutral event, is activated by the emotion associated with it, or the same sensory content, that then activates the behavioral pattern of the memory, setting into motion a whole automatic pattern that repeats the past in the present, creating more of the same type of memories. This is why 5, as the pentagram or Pentad, symbolic of the etheric Element as “mind over matter”, operates by the principle of “regeneration”, further symbolized by the Fibonacci Sequence of reproduction in which the most recent past brought into the present produces the future, and the holographic affect also called fractal patterns, where the mind simply reproduces more patterns that are of the same nature (memory) as it is.

A memory can be thought of as a state of mind or vibration that contains the pattern as a blueprint for producing a reality in a completely unconscious and automatic fashion. How we create our experiences is based on our state of mind or our soul mood. Memories are living thought-forms shaped by the mind out of the Elements that are viewed and replayed – kept alive – in the imagination as the invisible patterns we picture in our mind over top of actual reality as an invisible or translucent story that we use to restructure our current reality to be of the same nature. We use memory to make our current situation mean the same thing as our past situation did.

This reality that we form in our imagination is shaped out of the Elements as the etheric substance, or Astral Light. Just as light in the material world is actually invisible and only illuminates the atmosphere because it’s being both absorbed and reflected by dust and water particles in the air, is used inwardly by the mind of the individual to form an internal reality, even though it has the “feeling” of an actual visible picture, it’s translucent and invisible and can be viewed by superimposing it over or in front of the outer reality as our perceptual lens that we look through that determines what we see (that matches it and is being absorbed) and what we don’t see (what’s not a part of the same idea and is being reflected. Ideas exist in us in exactly the same way actual memories do, and can be used by the mind to form internal realities by picturing, sensationalizing, and thinking about them.

A thought is an active memory. While thoughts seem to be generated by the mind, they’re actually “tuned into and received” out of the invisible space around us, which is actually light intermingling with water and matter. The light of the material world that’s basically invisible in the physical world, comes from a star (our sun), and is therefore called “Astral Light”. Stars are the only living entities that are a true source of light. Everything else gets its material existence as matter, which is also light as photons, in its condensed form, by either absorbing or reflecting certain aspects or rays of light, which appears to us as colors or solid objects. This Astral Light that forms the Etheric body of all living forms, exists in four primary states as a gradient condensation as; electrified plasma (same substance as stars), gas, liquid, and solid. It’s used by the mind as a gas that behaves like a liquid, and can be shaped instantly into form by thinking. The power of the spoken Word (vibration), spoken both in silence to ourselves as thoughts, and outwardly as talking, comes through it’s ability to form images out of the words as the shapes they represent. As our mind thinks about something, it creates a reality out of it. The inner realities become the basis for outer realities of the same nature. As we think, we become. All of our experiences are our sole creation, produced by how we use our mind to perceive, interpret and tell ourselves a story about things. We shape, grow, and develop ourselves by way of our own story-telling and thought-forms.

pentagramThe 5th Element, represented by the Star or Pentad, represents the quintessence as the Ether body produced by how the mind shapes the 4 Elements into imagined and therefore “willed” realities. The Etheric body exists as a form of memory, or etheric substance that’s an (invisible) double or twin to the material body. The masculine (active and invisible) and feminine (passive and visible) aspects inherent in any physical body as the unification of dual yet complementary opposites. The etheric body forms the memory of the body, evolved by the soul through thinking, emoting, and imagining. The soul is the Astral Body, represented by 6, as another “star” image. The Astral Body is similar to the Air Element, and is the correspondence produced by the combination of Spirit as archetypal memory, and the body as individual memory, or Fire and Water. The soul is composed of accumulated memory acquired by combining archetypal memory to produce a variation as personal memory. As it acquires experiences from the body, it transposes them into personalized memory as the essence of the body, and absorbs and synthesizes it, evolving itself through the memory it attains.

The soul is the medium or intermediary between the Mental or Causal body and the physical – etheric body. Between pure spirit as unadulterated memory and its denser aspect as coagulated, specialized, and concentrated light as matter. Spirit exists in pure essence as archetypes and principles that are drawn on by the soul to bring into the body as a modified interpretation to create a specific experience by way of it. When the universal idea comes into physical expression, it has to come as an introduction of thought as suggestion into the individual form that’s a specialized combination of both physical-genetic and soul memory, that modifies it to fit the container of the individual mind necessary in order to conceive it, where it’s turned into a personalized version of the original. A thought or idea is drawn into the individual soul as a seeded reality that the soul-mind grows and shapes into a possible reality by imagining it that provides the subconscious mind of the body with a pattern for creating a reality out of. Likewise, the human soul, which has the power to create through thinking, feeling, and imagining as the will, creates thought forms as imagined realities formed out of intense emotional states that it dwells in an thinks about over and over, developing it with more detail and variations each time it thinks about it, infusing them with the souls life-force, that creates a form of virtual memory that populates the Astral Plane of the Earth, as our atmosphere or instinctual field of the subconscious mind, and acts the same as universal memory and is “picked up on” by other humans in much the same way they attract and acquire archetypal thoughts and ideas.

This ability to create artificial memory as illusions born out of emotional states and fantasizing about them, is what’s referred to as the collective unconscious, or mass consciousness of the group mind. We can literally tune into and draw into our mind the thoughts of others around us, which come to us in the same way as any thought or memory, out of the clear blue, as a feeling we get or something we just start thinking about as a part of our continuous stream of thoughts. Most of the time we have no idea that we’re thinking someone else’s thoughts, because we only resonate – attract and act as a receiver for – those who have similar thoughts or are vibrating at a similar frequency. Because they’re similar to ours, we mistake them for our own, and often allow them to take hold in us by continuing to think about them. This is also the basis for telepathy and clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience, all of which come as transmissions in the Astral Plane.

So simply allow yourself to start recognizing the role memory plays as the very foundation for your thinking and imagining. As you think, observe yourself in terms of what it means to think. What is thought? What activities are you engaging in as you form thoughts as imagined concepts and scenarios? How is this similar or different from how you think about actual memories? Allow yourself to realize that all knowledge learned comes through memory of some form, whether simply imagined, memorized through repetition, imagined or conceptualized, or as an actual experience.

vibration

Allow yourself to notice that what you’re thinking about today is very similar if not exactly the same as what you thought about yesterday, last week, or last year. Notice, that all you’re ever really doing, for the most part, is thinking the same type of thoughts born out of the same attitude and temperament consistently throughout our lives, evolving and varying them only slightly through different applications of the same basic ideas. Notice, especially as you get older, that even though your outer circumstances may be quite different today than they were five years ago, that inside, as a person, your nature has remained consistent, and in some cases unchanged. That all we’re ever really doing is growing ourselves by expanding and acquiring new kinds of memory, that evolve us into new ways of thinking, perceiving, and experiencing ourselves and the world around us. That while we believe our thoughts and memories were acquired neutrally or objectively by the events of our life that happened to us beyond our control, and that we’re the “way we are” because of what happened to us along the way, the fact is our life is the way it is because it’s a direct reflection of how we think about it. That what we call our experiences and memories are actually our own creation, and are completely subjective in nature.

While we don’t control the outer events and circumstances of our life, especially as children, how we interpret them internally creating our experience of them, is something we do all by ourselves, to ourselves. It comes completely by how we use the elements to first create an internal experience as feelings, emotion, thoughts, and meaning that form a story about what happened, and why, that forms how we experience and remember it. Long after that events gone, and no longer exists as real, and we’ve grown more mature through years, we still live out of and replay in our mind the same basic group of memories, creating more of the same type of experiences, and living out of the same type of story which becomes a life theme. Stories we told ourselves as children, are still the realities we’re living out of as adults. We shaped our identity as our sense of self out of our own stories about things. We completely live and die by way of our own mind that thinks and feels through our body, producing our experience of reality.

All reality is a product of memory.

The Unified Theory and the Law of the Mind

While science tends to say that it still hasn’t discovered the “unified theory of Everything”, or the single law of Nature with which all natural phenomena can be assessed without exception, its as if it fails to recognize in the most basic sense the very law or apparatus that makes the perception of all things possible. All arts and science and the material world as we know it is “mental in nature”. All perception, awareness, and natural phenomena are a primary function of the mind. Not what some have been taught to think of as a brain function, but rather as the energy field that not only operates the brain and body through the neurological system, but animates, structures, and holds together all forms of matter that make up the natural world. Nothing exists unless it’s perceived “as” something. The mind is the conscious source that generates all reality as we know it. Every science there is, with no exception, is a process of thought and conscious awareness. In fact, what we call the objective outer reality of separate and interactive things, may be the fabrication of our own individual mind, that produces our waking reality in much the same way it produces realities in our sleeping dreams.

cosmic mind

The law as a unified theory that science is always on a competitive quest to discover, is in reality an essential part of themselves postulating the very questions that drives its search to discover its own true nature, the mind out of which all things emerge as an interconnected whole. Without consciousness, reality itself wouldn’t exist, because there would be no awareness of it. Even with all our modern day scientific knowledge and technology, the only way we have of knowing whether of not something “actually exists” is if “two or more people appear to be seeing the same thing”. In the most basic sense, every individual is forming a unique and varied perception of the same outer, objective elements or events. No two minds perceive exactly alike. In fact, their perceptions outside of containing the same universal elements as a generic idea, are completely different, and often don’t even resemble each other.

This “unified theory of everything” that sciences gropes in the dark to find, is the very basis of their very being. It’s the fact that energy and matter are different aspects or degrees of the same thing. Energy and matter are equivalent and interchangeable as correspondences of each other. The primal substance of matter as light (photons), is a product of vibration as movement that produces the appearance of a solid substance. Vibration as invisible forces that become what we call physical reality by organizing light into three-dimensional shapes that have an ordered and formulated set of attributes and properties that animates it with distinct functions and behaviors, is consciousness itself, out of which everything as we know it emerges and is formed out of, then decays and blends back into.

Consciousness as the universal mind is ALL. Everything that we can see, hear, feel, smell, taste, and experience as real is consciousness itself, perceiving itself in everything else, acting on itself in others, and creating a sense of itself as something specific through the very nature of its thoughts and feelings. Consciousness is not only the light forms we call material reality, but it’s also the invisible space that organizes it, sets the stage for it to emerge, and holds it all together. The world as we know it is a product of our own thoughts and feelings. When we render ourselves “unconscious” by subduing the conscious aspect of outer awareness, everything ceases to exist and we are void of experience of any kind. Nothing exists without a conscious mind to perceive and experience it. So the basic nature as the “oneness” of all existence is the mind in its universal and individual state that exists on multiple levels, scales and at varying degrees throughout the cosmos.

The mind of the individual is the invisible energy field that surrounds, permeates, and inhabits the body, and contains a certain combination and measurement of consciousness. The group mind is formed as a larger mind of shared consciousness. Mass consciousness is the combined consciousness of a species or kingdom. All material objects, both organic and non-organic are accompanied by energy fields as the active and creative life giving force of that object. This energy field of the mind or consciousness is also referred to as the astral or Akashic field. The Earth has an astral field as its atmosphere, which contains all the consciousness of the life forms that inhabit it also referred to as the instinctual or morphogenic field of the collective unconscious. All of it is based on the same principle of consciousness at different scales and levels of existence.

3 selves
The first law of Universal Laws, is the law of the Monad, represented by a circle with a dot in the center, the same symbol that represents the sun as the center and life giving source of our solar system, is the Law of Mentalism. All is Mind. The substantial reality underlying all manifestations and appearances known as the “Material Reality” or the “phenomena of Life” as matter and energy, perceivable through the five senses of the body, and the higher sense of intuition, results from the perceptions formed by the Mind. All physical reality is a mental creation. The universe exists in the mind in which we all live, move, and have our being. There is considerably more to the greater Universe than the human being can perceive and know of, that’s outside of information obtained from our five senses, which is only tuned into and capable of interpreting a very small amount of the total information available. All laws that systematically evolve out of this primary law are laws that provide us with the means for using our own individual mind to transform ourselves and the reality we naturally experience and partake in. By changing our mind, our entire experience of life and what we act to naturally perceive changes also. All reality as we know it within this narrow plane that exists as a parallel aspect of a much greater realm beyond our ability to perceive it is all a creation of the mind. The mind, which is an invisible field of vibrating energy, often perceived as “empty space”, is the unified theory of everything, without which, nothing would exist. Spiritual (Hermetic) Sciences has known this for thousands of years, and its philosophical science is based on it. All new discoveries are simply rediscovering the same ideas and laws, viewing them through different models, and giving them different names. To know the universe, we simply have to look within and gain knowledge of our own mind, which exists as a smaller version of the greater Mind. As Hermes Trismegistus stated clearly thousands of years ago . . . “As above, so below, in the wondrous workings of the One great Thing”!

Light and Dark Forces – The Illusion of Good and Evil and the Balance of Life

good and bad

Light, which is often portrayed as “white” is in reality, invisible. What makes light visible as an illumination is an effect of the elements where photons (light particles) are either reflected off particles and form the colors they reflect, or photons are absorbed into matter and remain invisible, or unseen by the physical eyes. Without an atmosphere which is produced by light as heat absorbed by water which produces air, what we call “light” from the sun, isn’t light at all outside of a radiant glow around the sun itself. Space, which is filled with suns (light sources) is virtually dark. This is because there’s no matter to reflect light being omitted from numerous star systems. Without matter to separate light by absorbing some aspects of it while reflecting others, light as we know it wouldn’t exist, and we’d be in the dark seeing only the distant radiance of the stars and the reflected light of the moon (or any other celestial body). Light and dark, before they’re separated and used to contrast each other, exist as the “same thing.”

 
Because what we actually “see” in terms of colors – the vibratory rays inherent in light – is actually the aspect of light not being absorbed and thereby reflected, is actually showing us what it’s “not” in terms of vibratory frequency. A green plant for example, shows us what property of the spectrum exists outside of its vibratory range of absorption as resonance and sympathetic induction, and therefore fails to be absorbed as the energetic essence of the plant. We can know what rays the plant absorbs as the complementary colors of it outer reflection, and if the reflection is a complementary color itself, such as green (combination of two primary colors), we can measure the degree of absorption of the primaries it’s comprised of (in this case yellow and blue). Because of this dynamic interplay of opposites that are complementary (serve to stimulate and contrast each other), the material world as we know it through the vibratory schematic of colors and gradient shades is actually the opposite of its actual vibratory content and composition. We’re always seeing a mirror image of its energetic composition as it’s reflection of opposite properties.

 
This same idea works with inner vision and outer visions. Notice that if you stare at a green shape for a few seconds, then close your eyes, the same shape will form internally as red, the complementary opposite of green. This same effect will happen no matter what color you look at. The inner image produced in the dark is opposite in terms of color as the image seen in the light. Likewise, the colors that form inner visions and dream-like holographic images common in meditation are in the color of their actual frequency rather than a reflection which is not of their frequency. So light and dark, like all opposites that are actually complementary exist as one until separated (filtered) by matter of some sort. The light is invisible and appears dark without an object to both absorb and reflect certain aspects of light as the color spectrum, using the same unified substance to separate, contrast, and reflect other aspects giving it definition and distinct “knowable” properties.

The Physical World is a Mirror Image of the Spiritual World

From a purely energetic perspective, the physical world is formed by a reflection of the energetic (spiritual) world, which illuminates it while giving it distinct characteristics. So to say that light (as reflected illumination) is “good” and dark (as absorbed energy of the same vibration) is “evil”, in the most basic sense is the opposite of the truth. Instead of reflecting a truth, these terms have come to be used as a metaphor for good and evil, which is usually more of a judgment than a fact, and is actually meant to express knowledge as wisdom (being able to see) as opposed to ignorance and profanity (as being in the dark unable to see). Good is seen as deeds that are benevolent and creative as opposed to their opposite as hostile and destructive. Yet we can only “know one” as it exists in relationship and direct contrast to the other. Opposite qualities are necessary for existence as separation of inherent aspects that brings definition through comparison which is necessary in order to “experience” them “as” something specific.

 
This basic principle of unified forces that exist in a basic state of polarity that come into existence only through separation and contrast necessary to create a reality based on their dual nature that clashes and opposes itself in everything else, is the very foundation of life that makes experience as a personal reality possible. In order to get a sense of ourselves “as” something specific – as good, beautiful, divine, courageous, or strong – we have to contrast ourselves with the opposite quality in others that form the relationship necessary to define each other. Without evil, we couldn’t know good. Without hot, cold wouldn’t be meaningful, it wouldn’t convey any information necessary to create an experience of cold, which only comes by how it relates to hot.

 
What we call God as consciousness Itself that forms the energetic basis out of which all of life arises in an infinite variety of shared qualities remixed, is the unification of both light and dark, good and bad as undivided and coherent. Electromagnetic fields that simultaneously move away from each other while attracting to each other, resolve by forming a spiraling motion that form the basis for the dynamic drama we call life, in all its diversity and infinite variety. We all have within us both active and passive qualities, ones that are active and being expressed, and ones that remain latent and in a purely potential state. Latent potential is only stimulated and called forth into activity by its complementary force in the outside world. These qualities have never been utilized because we haven’t had to use them in a live situation. We are both outward and electric, and inwardly centered and magnetic.

Life – the Universal Drama

Likewise, there’s always a debate or contest going on within us by contrasting aspects of ourselves seeking outward expression by the victory of dominance. In order to be “courageous”, we need life to set the stage as outer conditions and circumstances that first elicit fear and uncertainty where we have to choose to “be” courageous by how we respond and interact with it. We can either let the fear overcome us and coward in response to it, or we can rise to meet it and overcome it through sheer willpower of some form. The outer life sets the stage necessary to awaken and bring forth in us the qualities necessary to transform them by how we enter into relationship with them.

 
We are always drawn to, and drawing to us, the ideal circumstances that will allow us to express inner qualities necessary to rise to them and self-create by way of them. We only become strong by overcoming difficult challenges. In order to give love, we have find and connect with someone desiring and able to receive love. In order to experience ourselves as good, we have to confront and resist evil. Otherwise there’s no shaping mechanism that allows us through virtue of our own constitution and will to meet life by embodying qualities that give us the experiences as a “sense of ourselves” that shape our identity, “who” we are, and what type of story we naturally tell by how we live our life.

 
In this realization we appreciate the wholeness of life, all of which feeds on and is nourished by all other aspects that exist in a dynamic relationship that’s actually an optic illusion as a virtual reality. The only thing that’s good or bad, or that exists as “our truth” is whatever we say is true. Whatever is true for us. Absolute truth as law, which isn’t based on belief or personal opinion, and is consistent throughout all of life beyond our personal paradigm which shapes the world to be like us, embodies all aspects of itself necessary to live out the drama of life in a way that allows everyone to develop whatever qualities in themselves they have a natural propensity towards that only comes by way of encountering and interacting with it’s opposite qualities in everyone and everything else.

Light as the visible world we call truth, is actually the opposite of truth as the vibratory nature of the physical forms themselves. While the form indicates function, the color represents the aspect of consciousness as a form of personality that animates it as behavior of some kind. The natural color as a quality of consciousness being illuminated or projected by the object isn’t the quality it possesses, but the quality it lacks. It’s the aspect of light that doesn’t fall within its vibratory range and can’t be absorbed. But we can know its real nature as it’s vibration by how the visible aspects exist in relationship to the invisible aspects as opposite and therefore complementary. This law governing colors as aspects of vibration inherent in light, only pertains to the natural world and not man made colors which are made with pigments that are made in an opposite manner of true light as the light spectrum.

 
The visible world, represented by “light”, or being illuminated and therefore seeable and knowable, is actually a projection as a false image rather than what reveals the true inner nature of the substance. Just as our inner nature is represented as the darkness created when we close our eyes, blocking out the light of the outer world, where our “shadow aspects” as qualities that we aren’t fully aware of are projected onto the outer world and others and reflected back to us, where we see aspects of ourselves in other people and react to them, usually while failing completely to realize that the traits we see in others that we form a strong reaction to (as resonance) are actually traits we have inside that we don’t fully own, or remain largely unaware of.

 
By realizing this reflective and absorbing quality of the inner with the outer, as seen and unseen aspects of ourselves, we can obtain knowledge of ourselves by realizing that the outer world is absorbing and reflecting back to us not their qualities, but rather our own qualities in them. Not by the behaviors they’re displaying, but by our reaction to their behaviors born out of our own interpretations as our perception of them. A reaction is absorption of energy stimulated by that same energy (frequency) in the outer world that enters into us (is absorbed by us) and produces a corresponding effect as an emotional reaction or body sensation. Emotions are what connect us to the same vibration in the outer world.

Heart EM field
By realizing that only energy as quality of consciousness that has emotions and behaviors in it, that are of the same nature as we are, can penetrate us and stimulate that same perception and behaviors in us as an emotional reaction, we can realize that anytime we’re reacting to somebody that they’re mirroring back to us our own qualities. In this way we can become aware of qualities that we possess that we remain unaware of through denial or repression of some form. Through awareness of what previously eluded us, we can begin consciously working to transform negative aspects of ourselves into positive ones. The very basis of all transformation as creation comes only by way of self-awareness that brings realization.

 
This reverse action as opposites of the same pattern (frequency) that act to stimulate each other calling forth the same idea in both people that then act out the same drama as a joint reality in which they play complementary roles, is the very basis of life itself as consciousness that only exists in the material plane through separation of dual aspects of the same nature (living pattern) as a relationship with itself in another. What we see in the material realm only shows us half the equation of what actually exists. By realizing that everything exists in relationship to itself in everything else, and that the outer trait acts to stimulate the opposite as an inner trait that’s a necessary part of a dynamic relationship that will serve to co-create a joint reality by playing opposite roles in the same idea as bringing an imagined inner idea into the world as an equivalent outer experience.

 
A pattern is a whole idea with many parts that all reflect and play roles in acting out that idea as a reality. This is how vibration as consciousness forms material realities as story lines formed out of shared themes that require someone else to play the opposite role in creating the same drama. Someone who believes people can’t be trusted and expects betrayal of some form, in order to live this belief out as a reality, has to attract a person who can’t be trusted and ultimately acts as the betrayer. Someone who sees themselves as a victim, naturally acts to attract someone who will victimize them. Someone who lives out of the theme of being abandoned, acts to naturally attract and enter into relationship with someone who will abandon them, usually while producing the behaviors that warrant being abandoned without full awareness that they are actually the ones causing their own abandonment.
Whatever theme we live out of as a core belief, forms the story we are programmed to tell through the relationships we form and what kind of behavior we employ as our conditioning which trains us to that pattern as a behavioral dynamic. In this sense we are always attracting the right people to play the opposite role in whatever story we are ideally suited to tell by how we’re designed. This attraction of opposites that are complementary is the only way we can continue to tell our story as a consistent reality. It determines what type of people we’ll naturally enter into relationship with and what pattern will issue forth and be immediately established as the nature of our relationships.

 
We are always being provided with the means to see the true nature or unknown aspects of something or someone by how the outer characteristics and behaviors exist in relationship to the inner aspects. What people put out front for us to see, seldom represents who they really are. Whatever image someone creates of themselves, they will naturally act to attract anyone who contrasts or contradicts it. We sustain and support ourselves off of what we resist and contrast.

 
While the surface appearances of natural things do not reveal their true nature, they do provide us with the information we need to realize their inner nature by how it exists in relationship to their outer characteristics. By utilizing the law governing algebra, we can know the unknown aspects of any equation by how they naturally exist in relationship to the known aspects. Through the law of analogies and correspondences we can realize relationships through a dynamic chain of association that identifies the same nature or quality of consciousness as it exists in various outer forms. The outer appearance reveals to us the true inner nature as a correspondence . . . if we know how to look at it.

Sacred geometry communicates the universal language of Universal Law, vibration and potential that impregnates matter with an animated form. God speaks to us in the language of mathematics, not as a “bean-counting” process that most have been taught, but as a philosophical system that communicates knowledge as universal laws through the relationship between spirit and matter as structure, order, and function. Shapes represent ideas as forms that have distinct attributes that undergo a natural growth process of “expression” that actualizes the idea as a corresponding reality.  Geometric forms put together as a composite image provide us with formulas that have an infinite number of interpretations that span multiple dimensions as the “same thing” manifesting on multiple planes at the same time. The key to decoding these formulas lies in the Law of Analogies and Correspondences that allows us to identify the same “nature” (vibratory frequency as a structuring mechanism) within different forms much like a system of classification based on attributes and qualities that form physical characteristics as a personality with distinct behaviors inherent in them that can take on numerous “outer forms”.

Sacred geometry speaks the language of laws as the energetic nature of the universe (the stuff of life) which is consciousness itself. Anytime we’re speaking of “energy” and “vibration”, we’re speaking of laws as the information necessary to “in-form” matter, shaping it while simultaneously animating it through a personality that has natural behaviors inherent in it that determine the reality it exists within as its mode for self-expression. The “quality of consciousness” that inhabits form is demonstrated through its natural behavior or how it functions in an automatic fashion. Consciousness itself operates according to law, and in human form is comprised of 3-aspects of a 4-fold nature. We commonly refer to these three aspects as the purely spiritual (energetic) aspect of higher or super consciousness, that forms the two lower (material) minds as the subconscious and self-conscious aspects that are predominate within the physical realm. The unification of these three modes of consciousness forms the physical reality of the 3 and 4-dimensional world. The subconscious mind is the aspect of the mind that we share with the animal kingdom and all of life commonly referred to as the instinctual field or greater mind, and the self-conscious aspect is a purely human feature that endows us with our creative abilities. Our most notable creative ability is the ability to self-create and be self-determined.

So to understand the Tetragrammaton, we have to look at the four primary laws that it represents that are the primary laws governing subtle energy as a dynamic living matrix of interwoven vibratory frequencies that underlies and ultimately forms the material realm as its culminated expression. The Tetragrammaton, or Tetrad, is represented by the number 4 which is symbolized by a square or diamond (sideways square), which is symbolic of material reality as the earth (material) plane. Naturally, it also represents the four elements which are the primary laws as natural processes that underlie all of material reality and nature. These four primary laws, which form the basis for material reality, are also the primary laws governing the astral, mental, and etheric or Akashic planes, which underlie, permeate and organize the material realm. While symbolic ideas as laws lend themselves to an infinite number of interpretations within multiple planes of existence, here I’ll simply give one interpretation as the basic laws of energy itself, which of course are the same primary laws that govern our own mind. In order to use something as a tool for creating within our own lives, we have to understand it. We only understand what we can conceptualize as a working model of some sort. The only purpose of my descriptions here are to provide you with a concept that makes it understandable and therefore utilizable in the practical sense.

The Tetragrammaton symbolizes the full expression of all the laws that precede and comprise it, while still containing the potential for all laws proceeding out of it as a continued growth process. The 4 laws it represents is simply where a vibration as an archetypal pattern first forms in the material plane as an actual manifestation. The laws proceeding out of it are the process necessary for growing and evolving the initial form into a series of higher or more complex forms as variations of itself. The Monad (1), Dyad (2), and Triad (3), represent the laws of resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. A vibration that exists in polarity as dual aspects of itself that form a range between them that allows movement between two poles that forms a frequency as a “range of expression”.

A frequency can be thought of as a “wave-form” that contains a basic pattern as an archetypal idea or theme, which exists in its purely potential form as an infinite number of possibilities for creating the same basic idea. This frequency as a “state of being” (internal) resonates with the same frequency (state) in everything else (external). The frequency as a vibratory patterning or cluster of complementary vibrations only forms resonance with other vibrations within the same range or wave-length. Anything outside of its range, it fails to resonate with (affect) or acts to repel or cast off. When it comes into near proximity with the same vibration as its complementary opposite, it forms resonance with it, which stimulates that same “state” in another, calling it forth in them as the basis for their interaction. Resonance, as sympathetic induction is where a vibration enters into the same vibration in an outside form and activates it through a form of synchronized movement as mind entrainment where they begin moving and acting as one. This frequency as our mind-field is also our perceptual lens which determines what we see in others and our environment. We only “see” (readily recognize and stands out) what is of the same vibration or state of being as we are, and can therefore be used to tell the same story as a joint reality. Whatever is of a different frequency, we don’t notice in the real sense, or it becomes apart of the backdrop in a situation.


The spirit as a unified field (Monad), separates from itself forming polar opposites (Dyad) that are complementary aspects (serve to stimulate each other) of the same nature (frequency), then acts “on itself” in another (through their shared qualities) or the outer world, blending with the qualities they share in common (forming an interference pattern) to create an experience of itself as a variation (new pattern) or new possibility. The spirit as an electrical charge programs particles turning them into a wave-form as plasma (astral light) which forms the essence of matter as a unified body. This electrical charge, programs all particles with the same frequency that unites a multitude of particles into a wave-form as being of the same “nature”. This nature as properties that form a pattern (vibration), unite the multitude of particles to move in a wave-form as a unified field of intelligence (information). They operate as if they’re one, because they become one through the information they share as their energetic state. This astral substance as electrified particles forms the astral body as the soul, which then enters into a material body as a fetus, and develops the fetus according to the same nature as the soul which impregnates and forms it through a form of spiritual (energetic) DNA. This bonds together the spirit as the mind, with the soul as the material mind (essence) and the body as the physical formation or expression of the spirit and soul. They’re bonded together through resonance because they share the same programming as a frequency. In this way, the soul enters into the physical body, becoming one with it and experiencing itself “as” the body. The soul’s vibration is modified to some degree by forming coherence with the body or physical DNA.

The mind-spirit and soul essence, which is a field of electromagnetic energy that permeates, energizes and envelops the body, resonates with the body, entering into it and forming coherence with it. The body acts as an antenna and conduit for the spirit-soul. The spirit which lacks form, yet contains all the information necessary to “in-form” matter is formed into a local energy field of the individual mind through sympathetic induction, that forms coherence (becomes of the same nature) while circulating in a circular motion around the body, mingling with the energy in its immediate environment, taking in and absorbing what’s of the same frequency, digesting and integrating it, then discharging or putting off the emanation of that frequency as a form of broadcasting while simultaneously recycling energy that has become obsolete or is no longer within the frequency range necessary to bond it to the overall system.

The mind as the energy field of the body is undergoing a constant form of evolution as an accumulative process that “builds up” information through a metabolic process of intake, assimilation and discharge, following the same principles that govern the regenerative processes of digesting food, drinking liquids, and breathing air. Just as we breathe the air around us, exchanging particles, some of which we assimilate and others we eliminate, that become the building blocks of the physical body through cellular regeneration that is always forming itself out of the same material substances as its environment, maintaining equilibrium within the atmosphere it exists within. Through this same metabolic process we absorb and integrate the energy around us as qualities of consciousness that modify our frequency to adapt to our environment as a form of “mind-building”. In order to determine (intentionally create) the frequency of our own mind, we have to either place ourselves in the proper environment with the type of people and activities we want to be influenced by (literally) by becoming “like them”, or we have to be able to self-generate the quality of consciousness we desire to posses through inner means, and thereby nourish ourselves with a particular mind-set that deflects all contradictory forms of perceiving and thinking. We are always developing ourselves to either be “like” others (relate), or to be the “opposite” of others (contrast).

The Tetragrammaton, or Tetrad, represented by the square or the number 4, which is symbolic of the four dimensions of the earth plane or material reality, which is the full expression of the principles preceding it that emerged out of the Monad as a form of growth process, gives us a formula for how to “self-create” as a relationship and energetic exchange with everything outside of and around us. It’s the culmination of 1, 2, and 3, as the Monad (mind), Dyad (polarity as division or regeneration of the Monad), and Triad (offspring as reality), unified through a metabolic process of absorption, assimilation, and elimination. The Monad which exists in polarity as opposites that stimulate each other, divides and separates from itself as a form of mental projection, then perceives only what’s of the same nature (patterning) as itself in everything else, and acts to stimulate that same nature in others, activating it and calling it forth through it’s perception, which enters into relationship with itself in the other (outside world), connected by the same quality of consciousness, and then creates a joint reality out of the shared qualities that form the basis for their interaction. They interact and “act out” a dynamic that develops the shared state of mind into an experience, which they then acquire as a form of memory that adjusts their vibration accordingly, strengthening that same quality and the dynamic used to express it, in both people.

Our vibration (mind-set) resonates with the same vibration in others, and enters into the field of another affecting them by vibrating them, causing them to feel an internal reaction to us. This interaction of the same vibration as an inward aspect resonating with the same outer aspect forms what quantum physics refers to as an interference pattern, which takes the common elements of both vibrations and forms them into a new pattern as a unique variation of the same elements (nature) that have been reformulated (form coherence). This “shared reality” is first created inwardly by how the interaction stimulates an inner, imagined reality as a personal experience, that’s then reflected or projected outward as the reality created through their behavioral interaction as the expression of their relationship. This frequency as shared qualities developed into a behavioral dynamic forms the basis for how they behave in relationship with one another as a constant an ongoing form of stimulus-response as cause and effect, where the effect then becomes the cause that stimulates the other in a like manner by reflecting back to them their own consciousness (through an equal reaction) that stimulates them with their own energy, which forms a chain-reaction of cause and effect.

Vibration is consciousness as information that structures matter into living patterns. These mental patterns as our paradigm or “model of the world” form our perceptual lens through which we view the world and we only “see” in others and our external world what matches our pattern, or the elements that we can reshape into the pattern necessary to continue telling our story about things. This allows us to create a consistent experience of reality shaped by the meaning we give things. The meaning we give things forms the story we tell about them, which creates on three levels simultaneously; it means something about us (Monad), about others (Dyad), and about the way the world is (Triad)).

4 element

A vibratory frequency as a conscious pattern in-forms matter through attributes and qualities that give it characteristics as a form of personality that has behaviors inherent in it that you naturally act out as a story-line that you “live” as a “life-theme”, or greater pattern. Whatever vibration we exist as, determines the story we live out as our basic mode of perception, that’s produced naturally and automatically through our personality and how we act. Our perception alone, as an interpretation, stimulates that same vibration as a corresponding pattern to our interpretation as a primary means of re-organizing it into a new pattern. What we “see” in others, which is always a direct reflection of “whom” and “how” we are in terms of sharing the same nature, we simultaneously act to bring out in others. Our perception re-interprets them to be “like us”. Through our perception of them, we remake them in our “own image” and with our likeness. We assign them the same qualities that we ourselves possess. We tell a story about them as an interpretation that fits them into our story about others and the way things are, that simultaneously means the same thing about us in relationship with our own creation. Because of this, what someone says about another, says very little about the other person, but merely acts to reveals themselves.

Many find this idea somewhat confusing because they fail to recognize that a “pattern” as a nature or personality that “tells a story” as the means for creating a reality as an experience, has multiple “roles” in that pattern necessary to live it out as a behavioral dynamic. Because we favor one role, position, or perspective in an overall theme, and we act to naturally perceive and attract to those who ideally play the other roles in the same story-line, we don’t see it as “seeing ourselves” in another through the story we tell “about” them, because we think being the “same” means playing the same role. In the reality seeing ourselves in another means they are of the same pattern or nature as us and act naturally to play out the same story with us. We can build them into our story-line as a natural interpretation of their behaviors and how they interact with us to act out the same dynamic. As an example, someone who’s always a “victim” in their own stories, doesn’t attract other victims, they attract someone who will “victimize” them, and in doing so, work together to create a joint-reality that tells the same type of story. We’re always noticing, reacting to and using as the means for telling our story the elements and qualities in others that play the different roles necessary. Our perceptual lens is a filtering mechanism that brings to our attention only what is of the same story-telling capabilities as we are.

In terms of evolution of our mind and soul, as achieving a higher vibration as a higher level of consciousness, we have to first begin by recognizing ourselves in terms of our own paradigm or “model of the world” that forms our basic perceptions and interpretations for how we “see” the world and the story we’re always in the process of telling by living it, and gain realization through self-awareness of our own character and tendencies. Through self-realization and “owning” our own stuff, or accepting it without justifying it or projecting it onto others as blame that denies it, we can become aware of how we act to create our life experiences through a form of “default” or automated tendencies, and decide instead who and how we want to be, and what type of story we choose to tell by acting it out. We can then realize the qualities we need to possess as part of our character in order to naturally tell a new kind of story that creates a new experience of ourselves that change how “we sense ourselves”, which reshapes our identity.

We can consciously set rules for ourselves as a moral code of conduct that we hold ourselves to that serves to set guidelines that transform tendencies that are ultimately destructive and harmful, into ones that are constructive and beneficial in nature. We can begin the creative process of choosing our character and disciplining ourselves by utilizing our will to produce those choices as our actual reality. By changing our attitude and behavior, we change our life as a correspondence. By taking a different perspective and acting different, we become different. By thinking and imagining in new ways, we begin perceiving new realities that were always present as latent potential in the old realities that we simply didn’t have the “eyes to see”.

Our perception is an interpretation as a composing mechanism that shapes our reality. By simply setting the intention to see something different in the same situation, and looking at it differently as a result, and begin realizing that we can see whatever we choose to see and set and expectation for as a result. Though it may take practice in the beginning, as we discipline ourselves to consistently see in new ways, the more we do it the easier it becomes, until it becomes natural and automatic. Once we do something until its built into the muscle and becomes automatic, and we do it without having to think about it or make a special point of it, we begin using the power of our will to reshape our reality and ourselves in relationship to our own creation. We begin mastering our ability to act “on ourselves” to intentionally “create ourselves”. We move out of default mode and begin fashioning ourselves by way of our own hand.

The basic process of self-creation, formulated through the laws of the Tetragrammaton, is always going on; it’s simply a question of whether or not we’re aware of it. It’s happening automatically (according to law) in our lives, and we can either choose to remain shrouded in ignorance of it, or we can awaken in our own lives by becoming aware of how law is operating through the very nature of our own mind. We are always the ones creating our own internal experiences in response to outer stimulus. No one else feels our feelings for us, thinks our thoughts, chooses what we focus on, or relives our memories for us. Only we do that “to” ourselves as a primary means of “programming” ourselves to that frequency.

The story we are always in the process of telling about things as our life theme, is our own creation. It’s the story we began telling about things as a way of making sense out of them as a child. We then continued telling that same story while evolving it to the perspective of an adult. By the time we become adults our story forms our basic perception as self-imposed limitations that confine us to the theme inherent in the story. Whatever idea (vibratory pattern) we embody, forms our thoughts and feelings, and connect us emotionally with everything around us that forms a analogous reality as a thematic story that we’re always in the process of perpetuating. To change our “vibration”, we need to change the nature of our life story.
