The Dual Nature of Existence and the Universal Law of Polarity

A popular spiritual theme being taught in the world today, usually professed by those who lack a fundamental understanding of the scientific nature of reality, is that what we perceive as being dual in nature, as a composition or greater pattern formed out of what appears to be “separate things”, is an illusion in the most basic sense. Yet this idea, like most, is paradoxical in nature because it’s usually referring to the illusion of everything in the material world appearing to be ‘separate things’ that are set apart from each other, and therefore energetically disconnected in the most basic sense, while still forming what we experience as a single, unified reality. This idea is further compounded and made elusive by the fact that every individual seems to perceive what we can call the same reality in a different way that’s unique to them. This is because reality exists as an organized field of light structured by the individual mind perceiving it, and the act of perceiving is formed by a polarized force that interacts with itself on both a personal (inner) and universal (outer) level at the same time, forming what we experience as reality. As this electromagnetic force of the mind pulsates in a rhythmic fashion between and inner core and outer boundary, it forms a 3-dimensional sphere of circulating light called a torus, or toroidal field of polarized light, also known as a etheric model formed as a projection of our own mental paradigm. The Law of Polarity is a universal law, which means it’s a fundamental law that operates at the subtle level in forming the energetic substrata out of which the phenomenal world is emanated as a dynamic matrix of conscious ‘living light’. In the most basic sense, “light and life” are synonymous terms because matter consists of concentrated light, and all material forms are created as a highly organized field of polarized light. As polarized light propagates through space it forms a transverse wave that resembles butterfly wings as a right or perpendicular angle, which also flip flops (spirals) as it moves through space from one pole to another, forming a 3-dimensional construct of stabilized light.

Polarized Light as a frequency that propagates through space

The only way an idea, which originates in a completely invisible and therefore uncreated state, can construct itself into a visible light form as a mental image, is by ‘dividing’ into polar-opposites which act to push apart and pull together at the same time, forming what we can think of as a space-time continuum that forms ‘dimension’. All living 3-dimensional forms are constructed as a coherent matrix of light through the interaction and relationship of polarized aspects, which are complementary in nature as being different aspects (positive and negative) of the same thing. Conscious energy imbued with an archetypal idea constructs “itself” into a body of light by moving rhythmically between complementary poles of itself forming the basis for vibration. As conscious energy moves from one pole to the next it produces friction and heat (expansion), which generates a fluorine-like gaseous light that acts as the precursor for visible light. It’s formed originally on the inner planes of the mind as a mental construct formed out of astral light (subtle energy) that’s invisible to the material senses. This mental construct (etheric body) as a thoughtform serves as an archetypal template for producing an equivalent material form as its outer body or etheric shell.  

Toroidal Field of electromagnetic energy that forms a circulating sphere of energy

While we tend to think of light as an illumination, it exists fundamentally in a polarized state and is both invisible (dark) and visible at the same time. All material forms have both a visible aspect and an invisible one which appear as a spherical egg-like shape that permeates, surrounds, and encapsulates the material body. Light exists simultaneously as both a particle (substance) and a wave, where the part is located within a greater whole of the same nature and vibratory state. The purely invisible aspect is the energy field (waveform) of the unconscious mind, which in-forms, generates, and gives life to the body (particle-substance) as its outer reflection. Through its reflection as both a body and the reality being projected through the body, it’s able to “experience itself” as something specific and come to “know itself” through its own mental projection. The body forms the central axis around which the outer world is formed and revolves as the stage and setting for having a particular type of life experience that follows a universal theme. The archetype of the individual soul projects the outer world as a complementary theme that’s ideal for forming a “life story” as a consistent type of experience, born out of its own perception and interpretation.

As a coherent field of highly organized light is constructed into what appears as a stable, stationary field of illumination, movement through and within this coherent field also occurs through polarity. All movement, no matter what level it occurs at, is formed through the interaction of polar opposites, where one is electric and the other magnetic. We have a stationary, passive field of light as “subtle energy”, that acts to house and provide a 3-dimensional construct in which all activity occurs as a fluent movement. While this subtle sphere of illumination appears calm and motionless, it’s actually buzzing with activity at every level of its existence. It provides the 3-dimensional reality in which all life exists and plays out as a universal drama. This field ‘functions’ as a single entity that’s comprised of both subtle and gross energy that fluxes and flows as a dynamic interaction with “itself”. It functions as what you can think of as a “holomovement”, where the whole field moves in-sync as a single motion at the subtle level. This idea is commonly represented by a spider web, called the “web of life”, where even the slightest movement at any point on the web causes a vibration that produces an equivalent effect throughout the entire web.  

Polarized Light - EM Plane Field Propagation

Entanglement as Polarization

All particles “pop into existence” as polarized twins. One is the invisible aspect of the other, which forms the basis for what’s called dark energy, dark matter, and dark particles, with the term “dark” referring to ‘invisible’. Although the invisible aspect can’t be known directly using our physical senses, which are only designed to perceive and interpret the material world, we can come to know it by how it exists in relationship with its own material twin, which is its ‘knowable’ aspect. The term ‘relationship’ describes the interaction between their fundamental properties as ‘energetic states’, based on their momentum and position (polarization) within the space-time continuum (dimension). Knowing about the characteristics of one tells you about those same characteristics in the other, because they’re complementary to each other. They combine in such a way that they enhance and emphasize the qualities they share in common.

This becomes even more elusive when we look deeper at the true nature of what we call “reality”, where the same principles are at work in creating it in a way that’s unique to every individual mind forming it. Our mind and soul exist simultaneously as both a material form and a wave or greater field of organized light that provides us with a mirror into the full, albeit hidden and unknown content of our own unconscious mind. This greater, seemingly outer field of structured light exists fundamentally in a state of “probability” (endless possibilities as variables). This means it contains all possibilities in their latent, potential state, as correlated (harmonious) information that’s fundamentally ‘unorganized’, yet a part of a greater theme. This outer reflection is formed through our own ‘mental state’. The outer, all-inclusive field of information (substrata of reality) is ‘ordered’ into a new construct by the individual mind, who only ‘selects’ (activates) the elements that correspond to its own mental model. As corresponding elements are activated in the atmosphere around us and brought forth into conscious awareness, they’re organized into what appears as a stable (coherent) construct, through the natural process of “perceiving”. Perception is formed through directed attention and mental observation. As we observe something, we ‘collapse the field of probability into a single possibility’, forming the outer reality of our own mental state.

Interference pattern formed through resonance

The Effect of Resonance

We affect the ‘state’ of other beings and objects in the same way, through an energetic interaction based on the relationship formed between similar aspects, qualities, and characteristics. The state of two people or objects that are a harmonious part of an even greater, cosmic frequency (dynamic pattern), come together, initially vibrating at slightly different modes, and as they interact (inner action) they begin vibrating in harmony with each other forming a “new state” that forms the basis for a “shared reality”. As they begin vibrating in harmony with each other, they don’t swap information, so to speak, but act “on each other” to only activate and bring forth into expression the qualities and attitudes they share in common. The polarized energy of our mind exists as both active and projective, and passive and receptive states that are correlated to each other. What’s of the same nature-state and latent in the atmosphere around us acts as a passive receptor for the active aspect of our mind being projected outward through our perception. The active aspects of our consciousness “enter into” (resonate) and bring alive only correlated properties and attributes, while leaving everything else in its latent state, where it forms the background. As it pulls out and systematically organizes only what’s of a similar nature, it constructs (assembles) an outer reflection of its own inner nature and the reality born out of its current mental state.

Whatever state of mind we consistently cultivate and maintain habitually, determines how we experience reality. We don’t do this by altering the objective, universal reality we all share in common as Nature, but by changing how it “appears to us” by what stands out and what goes unnoticed. It takes on a different appearance to everyone viewing it, which sets the stage for creating a certain type of experience. We always see outside of us what’s actively expressing inside of us. Whatever idea, thought, or memory we dwell in and run through our mind repeatedly, we “tune ourselves” to that frequency, and produce an outer experience of the same nature and kind, usually without realizing what we’re doing. All “states” contain “whole processes” within them as an active expression where all things in the outer world are “reformed” to reflect the reality of that state, and all the activity that naturally ensue out of it is the activities inherent in that state. In wave-particle duality, the wave and particle are a direct reflection of each other on different scales, where the part exists within a greater whole of the same nature, frequency, and material configuration.

Holographic Nature of Mind - how our mind forms reality as a hologram of highly structured light

The One and the Many – The Part and the Whole

Everything that exists comes into being as a single entity that forms a desire to ‘know itself’ by being able to ‘perceive itself’ through its own outer reflection. In order to achieve this, it has to construct itself into an expanded field of organized light by dividing itself (generate a duplicate of itself) into polarized aspects that both push apart and pull together at the same time, creating a ‘space-time continuum’ where the same mental energy oscillates in a rhythmic fashion between opposite poles of itself, creating an internal “movement”. The automated movement between opposite poles of the same thing forms ‘vibration’. Vibration contains both an archetypal pattern and self-organizing mechanism which acts to build the archetype into a body of light, clothing it as a 6-dimensional form that expands and contracts from a ‘central axis or point’. It acts ‘on’ itself to construct itself into a holographic light formation ‘contained’ fully ‘within itself’. Its outer reflection is formed on the periphery of its own mental sphere. This forms a central perspective that views and therefore experiences itself as an outer reality that’s formed and animated out of the content of its own nature, allowing it to experience itself on different scales and magnitudes as a single-inner and all-inclusive outer, that are formed as an expression of the same archetypal formula of qualities and characteristics.

The Paradox of Duality and the Interaction of Polar-Opposites

All life exists as what seems like a paradox, because it’s formed on multiple levels, scales, and planes that combine to form different aspects of the same essential nature. What we experience as reality is comprised of three parallel (interwoven) planes that manifest as a single reality on a fourth plane. Reality is formed out of three aspects of a unified whole that manifest on the material plane as a single coherent light formation. What we exist ‘within’ and experience as reality, which seems like a stationary matrix of light (all matter is essentially comprised of organized light) in which activity of various sorts naturally takes place, is formed out of polarized light, which expands and contracts simultaneously creating the “illusion” of a stationary light formation. What appears fixed as a crystallized matrix of light, when observed from the subatomic level, is vibrating at numerous rates and modes, forming a frequency as a dynamic “range of vibration” that’s perfectly correlated and harmonious.

duality reconciled to form a third element

All living beings, which are formed out of material substance that provides an outer shell and body for the mind and spirit (soul) to inhabit as a means of perceiving itself through its own outer emanation, vibrates at a frequency unique to its own form and character as a “mode of consciousness”. This unique frequency is referred to as its “signature frequency”, and is unique in terms of reflecting its personality and individuality as a particular mode of consciousness. As humans, bestowed with a “conscious mind” and the ability to create ourselves based on our thoughts, feelings, and emotions, form a signature frequency that’s a reflection of our own mindset. Everyone vibrates at a slightly different frequency while still playing a harmonious part in a greater pattern playing out as a group, global, or cosmic drama. All differentiation and uniqueness, whether between different species or the same species, is formed by its vibratory signature.

When we penetrate the fixed appearance of what we call reality and material form, we find a smooth, rhythmic movement between two opposing poles, which acts to ‘assemble’ its own light body as a means of being an essential part of an even greater light body. All matter, when viewed from the subatomic level is comprised of photons (clumps of light) which appear to revolve around a central axis, similar to a miniature solar system. Light is generated through friction as movement, and movement only occurs through complementary poles that are set apart from each other, creating the illusion of “space”, in which a cyclical movement of polarized light constructs a 3-dimensional form “within” itself (the invisible sphere of its mind).

Layers of the energy body

What appears outside of us is actually a reflection of what’s inside of us on a greater scale that’s comprised of an infinite number of parts. Each part reflects the whole as an aspect, and the whole is formed out of the summation of its parts, all of which vibrate in harmony with each other in forming a homogenous whole. What we imagine to be outside of us and distinctly separate from us, is actually reflecting back to us an aspect of our own psyche that we’re normally not aware of, because internally we sense ourselves through our feelings, and our feelings form the basis for our thoughts and how we perceive ourselves in relation with our own outer creation. A quality that exists inside of us in a latent, inactive state, is stimulated and brought to life within us through an outside force that’s complementary in nature. Complementary means they play different roles in co-creating the same type of experience as the dynamic inherent in that quality.

While we tend to view the world around us as being 3-dimensional, as a spatial construct that lacks an origin, if we view it as a spherical shape emanated from a central point, we see it as having six dimensions, an East, West, South, and North, along with an up and down. This forms both a circulating, self-sustaining sphere or globe, and a “cube”, comprised of six faces. This is why material reality is represented by a square and cube (salt), and the mind, soul, and spirit that emanates it is represented by a sphere or oval, egg shape. All material forms, no exceptions, regardless of its physical shape is accompanied by an invisible sphere of energy, which permeates, surrounds, and fully contains it. It’s the mental aspect that “in-forms it” and contains all the information (archetype) necessary to not only create it, but also for maintaining it for a period of time through a constant and ongoing process of regeneration. All material forms are undergoing a continuous process of life, death, and rebirth at the cellular and mental level as a natural means of sustaining life.

The principle of polarity is what gives rise to the now scientific concept of “dark” (invisible to the physical senses) matter, dark energy, and the illusion of space being “empty” and void of life. This is what also forms the basis for wave-particle duality, where we know all particles come into existence as “polarized twins” that interact with each other on what appears to be smaller and larger scales. As well as the scientific concepts of entanglement, superposition, and recognition that the “individual mind” interacts with and influences matter to take on the appearance that it does. This is the dynamic bridge between spirit and matter that’s commonly called “pseudoscience” and is the basis for quantum physics where the mind remains a fundamental part of the greater equation, making the results attained difficult to explain using traditional material models.

Holographic reality

The Power of Perception

We “know” through scientific observation that the mind has a direct effect on matter (light) in terms of influencing how it organizes into what appears as a material form or reality. How reality appears is an “effect” being produced by the mind observing it. This mysterious phenomenon is described as the “wave” (greater field of latent information) being “collapsed” around a “single possibility”, creating a unique variation as a mental correspondence. Even though we can observe the effect the mind has in organizing light into a material construct, we still have trouble explaining it in conventional terms, and as a result, it tends to be ignored or left out when drawing conclusions that only involve the material aspect of a larger equation.

Scientists continue to set out “looking for” the “unified theory of everything”, without seeming to realize it’s their own mind and the mind as it exists on greater scales and levels as the micro (individual) and macro (cosmic). We have different levels of the mind called the individual, group, cultural, global, and cosmic mind, which are all correlations of each other as the “One which forms the many, and the many that form One”. The same group of fundamental principles function on different levels and scales simultaneously in producing physical form as the outer reflection of the mind-soul. Each one of us is creating our own world as a perception of ourselves that allows us to “experience” our self and come to know ourselves through our own creation.

Unfortunately, most have been taught and have therefore come to perceive themselves as being their body and personality, living in an outer world that’s separate and independent of them, where they imagine everything is happening to them beyond their ability to influence or control it, and as a consequence have become a victim in their own creation. We’ve been taught to interpret “duality” as meaning that we’re separate and set-apart from everyone else and the world around us, rather than moving in-sync with it as a form of holomovement or waveform being orchestrated through our mind as the “archetypal matrix” of our vibratory signature.

The Power of Focus – How we Manifest Our Reality without Realizing it

This is compounded by the fact that we imagine reality is “objective” in nature, where everybody is seeing the same thing and experiencing it in the same way, when nothing could be further from the truth. What we call reality is formed and only “known” through our “perception” of it, and our perception is formed out of our mental paradigm, which is the synthesis of all our life experiences that make up our vibratory signature. Our mental paradigm is formed out of our dominant attitude, values, beliefs, emotional states, preferences, and memory, all of which are synthesized to form a single unit as our “inner nature” and soul’s essence.

Our model is formed out of “mental filters” that act to sift through, activate, and “order reality” through a dynamic filtering process where we only notice and abstract from a much larger picture what matches and corresponds to our thoughts and ideas about it. The abstracted elements are then organized into a unique variation that reflects our model, allowing us to experience ourselves and come to know ourselves through our own self-created experiences. All reality, in the most basic sense, is subjective in nature, where everybody “sees” the world in a way that’s unique to them and that sets the stage necessary for them to “tell their story” about themselves and the way life is. Our experience of the outer world is formed through the relationship we have with ourselves in everything else.

While it’s safe to say that an objective reality does in fact exist, formed out of the planetary mind and soul of the Earth, we call Nature, where the same elements are seen by everyone (trees, plants, mountains, rivers, rocks, animals, etc.), how each one of us experiences those elements is different and unique to us. This objective reality we all share in common, is formed initially out of the planetary mind, called the subconscious and the collective unconscious of the group mind, which is formed initially out of the Earth’s memory as the “instinctual field”, which is what serves to inform everything it gives birth to with the life and activity it naturally takes on.

How We Form Reality Out of Our Mental State

This same group of fundamental principles is how we all act to create reality as a means of experiencing ourselves and coming to know ourselves through our own mental projection. Our “inner self” is an archetype which vibrates at the frequency of our paradigm, formed out of the summation of all our experiences, is an active, electric force that projects outward as our attention, moving through the atmosphere only bringing alive in the world around us what’s of the same nature and frequency as we are. As our mental energy expands outward it vibrates correlating aspects in the atmosphere around us, while moving through others without affecting them. This calls forth corresponding elements which are then formed into a correlating outer model of the same kind and type. It functions as a filtering mechanism that sorts out (selects) and only perceives what can be used to build an outer world that matches the inner world. Once the electrical aspect has sorted out information needed to organize and assemble itself on the outer plane, it then switches polarity and draws the mental construct created back into its core, where its integrated back into the model that produced it as an “interpretation”. The interpretation forms the basis for how we experience it, and how its translated back into memory of ourselves.

For example, a person who has formed a story about themselves as “not being good enough”, not being loved or wanted, will act to form this type of experience out of “any” situation or interaction they’re a part of. No matter how well intended the behavior of others are, they’ll interpret it in a way that “means” they’re not good enough and therefore not loved or wanted. It’s not the actual situation that determines their experience, but how they interpret the activities within that situation to “mean” they’re not good enough or wanted. Out of their own interpretation, they form the basis for how they experience it. Someone who has been betrayed or abandoned, will go into any situation with suspicion and an expectation of being betrayed and abandoned. They’ll look for and only “notice” and focus on in any situation what can be made to mean the same thing, and any contradictory information or behaviors will either go unnoticed, be intentionally ignored, or will be interpreted in a way that makes them mean something different.

Our model not only orders, assembles, and maintains our outer world, it’s also used to interpret our experiences to give them the meaning they have, out of which our story about ourselves naturally takes shape and becomes expressed outwardly as a direct experience of ourselves. The experience formed is integrated back into the model that birthed it, modifying and evolving it based on any new elements or variations acquired. As its integrated back into the model that birthed it, it becomes electrically charged and projects outward again, forming a continuous cycle of self-awareness. While we can break this process down into a working concept as a means of understanding how it functions, this is all happening instantaneously, where every aspect of the greater process is happening at the same time. It’s produced as a coherent field of light brought alive by sensation, that gives us a consistent and congruent experience of reality. We don’t realize we’re the one producing reality through our perception of it, because it happens naturally and occurs in an automatic fashion at a primarily unconscious level. We’re not aware of the fact that we’re the one creating our own experience of reality or how it is that we’re doing it, because it’s an energetic process whose active aspect is invisible and can only be known through the effect it produces as an inner experience. The outer world is shaped through the relationship that exists between our higher (inner) and lower (outer) mind.

The only way our outer world changes is when our inner world changes, because they’re projections of each other. The content of our inner world, both known and unknown, can be known and understood through its own outer reflection, which its acting to project and assimilate it. While we can act to change our outer situation and who we associate with, our inner nature and way of experiencing the world stays the same. We continue to live out of the same “story” about ourselves and life, no matter where we go, because we continue to use our mental paradigm as the basis for producing all of our experiences. As we move into a new area or situation, we continue to live out of the same paradigm where the same idea is played out with a new group of people. We have to “work on ourselves” to evolve our paradigm and the image we’ve formed of ourselves before our perception of others and life in general changes. Nothing outside of us changes until what’s producing it inside of us changes, because they’re complementary aspects of each other and are acting “on each other” to stimulate each other into existence. The outer and inner are continuations of each other on a smaller and greater scale. Internally we know ourselves through our feelings and thoughts, and externally we experience the world formed out of our thoughts and feelings.

Karma, Life Design, and the Holographic Principle of Destiny

Destiny can be a difficult idea to explain or even express accurately, because like so many aspects of the human psyche, it appears to have a twofold nature. There’s one that’s conducted with a sense of awareness and even deliberation, and one that seems to play out in a subliminal and automatic way beyond our ability to control or direct it. We all have what we can call two aspects of the mind, which form our higher and lower nature, as our higher conscious, and lower subconscious mind. These are both different aspects of the same mind and play different roles and functions in creating the perception of a unified reality, in much the same way the right and left hemispheres of the brain operate in tandem with each other. Our conscious mind is related to our higher nature of pure mind which is divine and creative, and our subconscious is related to our physical, animal soul and lower nature, which is noncreative and functions almost exclusively through automated habitual processes. The idea of destiny is directly correlated with the universal principle of “will”, which brings into question whether we have a personal will, or if it’s solely a function of our higher mind.

Just as we have two aspects of the same mind, soul, and self that function harmoniously as complementary (polar) opposites within the formative plane of the material world, we appear to also have both a higher divine will, and a lower personal will. The question then becomes whether these are different aspects of the same thing, where one functions on the higher plane as an “entire whole”, while the other operates on the lower plane, where we’re located “within” the greater whole as an essential part of it, in order to attain it as an “experience of ourselves”. Of course the answer is it’s both – our higher will creates the whole life-cycle out of what’s called our karmic seed, where our whole life plan is created in a latent “seed form”, which is then systematically activated and set in motion through a dynamic series of life events that form a synchronized growth process. At the personal level, our will usually comes as a vision we form for our life that seems to be ingrained in us and takes shape as we grow through our life experiences. Like most mysteries, it appears to be paradoxical in nature based on which plane and aspect of the mind we’re viewing it from, yet in the overall sense, they’re fundamentally different aspects of the same thing.

Sphere of multiple layers
Parts within the Greater Whole

One of the easiest ways to understand this concept as a universal principle, rather than a belief, is by correlating it harmoniously with the two aspects of the mind in which it unfolds systematically as being both the “whole”, and the “part located within the whole” at the same time. In order to do this, we have to view it from the same conceptual model we use for understanding how our own mind and soul operates simultaneously on two levels of the same plane, which are polarized aspects that are intermeshed in forming a single plane as a coherent whole. Where one aspect functions to form, hold together and maintain the whole while also orchestrating all the activity that takes place within it, while the other aspect is birthed fully “within it” as an intrinsic part of it in order to experience it. On one level we’re writing our own life story while also composing all the elements necessary to tell that story in a particular way, and on the other level we “enter into” and play the main character in our own story.

Life by Design

Every attribute that we are bestowed with while in our lower, subconscious, animal body, is derived from the higher, conscious, divine mind, which undergoes a conversion when it moves from creator to the character within its own creation. These two correlated planes of the mind function in polarity with each other, where one seems to be the “operator” and active component, while the other is the passive component that’s being “operated”. This makes them seem paradoxical in nature because while apart of the plane that works in a largely automatic and natural manner, we don’t realize that we’re the one who’s actually directing it from a higher state of consciousness. In order to form a clear understanding of how destiny works in determining and guiding the course of our life, we’ll look at it in terms of how each plane operates according to the laws that govern that plane while playing a complementary role in forming a greater whole. I’m going to use the model of the Kabbalah “Tree of Life” because it’s an ideal model for understanding how spirit, mind, and body are different aspects of the same thing and how our mind functions on three levels to manifest as a single reality on a fourth level as a coherent and cohesive matrix of highly organized light that forms, maintains, and animates what we experience as “reality”.

Cosmic Hierarchy

The highest aspect of the mind is called the supernal or superconscious, which contains the lower two aspects of the mind in their latent and potential state as a part of its essential nature. In order to create itself as a material being, it has to construct itself as a holographic, 3-dimensional light form. In order to do this it has to divide itself into polarized aspects that move rhythmically between two poles that are set apart from each other. All “movement”, which is the basis for “vibration”, occurs through the interaction of polarized aspects that are complementary parts of each other. Just as the superconscious contains the other aspects “within it” as a part of its essential nature, as it projects an image of itself into the lower, denser plane of light, each part is also a whole in itself, and comprised of three intrinsic parts that function as a single entity (each aspect has a triune nature). The superconscious projects itself into the lower plane of Formation (Astral plane) as the conscious (active) aspect of the mind, which is “pregnant” with the subconscious mind, which it then projects into the lower regions of the same plane as its counterpart. All “planes” are formed as a feature of the mind and like the mind are polarized, forming a higher and lower region of the same plane. Each aspect of the mind is formed as a triad that’s comprised of polarities that operate together in forming a third element as a coherent, equilibrated whole.

As the Superconscious projects itself into the lower plane as complementary aspects of itself, it forms originally as the higher conscious mind, which resides within the higher, more refined region of the formative plane, and never fully “enters into” or becomes an essential part of its own manifestation. It resides on the higher, outer plane that contains the entire material reality “within” it, and is what oversees, orchestrates, and acts to guide all the activity that unfolds systematically within the whole. The conscious mind is also polarized (a Triad) and contains the subconscious mind in its latent and potential state, which it then acts to project into the lower region of the same plane as a mirror (reverse) image of itself, forming the basis for the physical body and outer reality emanated through the body. The subconscious, birthed with the same image and likeness of the conscious mind, is also polarized and forms a Triad of “reversed polarity”. The conscious mind is the active, masculine aspect of the mind that contains the feminine aspect within it, which possesses all the attributes and properties necessary to generate a physical vehicle which it can then inhabit as a means of manifesting “within” and as an essential part of its own manifestation.

soul - masculine and feminine

This idea is communicated in spiritual texts through the allegory of Adam and Eve, where Adam was created first as a hermaphrodite, and then Eve was “made” from one of Adams ribs to serve as his helpmate. She was fashioned from his body. This idea has further meaning when we take into consideration that the skeletal system of the body is the organ related to the “soul” and is what acts as the “structuring mechanism” of the body, making movement as activity possible, and bone marrow is what generates blood stem cells that can become red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets, and forms what we call our soul’s “essence”. The higher conscious mind is the positive pole and the subconscious is the complementary negative pole that acts to conceive the creative seed of the conscious mind and build it into an outer reality on the lower plane. These are not only polar aspects of each other as an active-positive and a passive-negative pole, they also move between planes by reversing polarity, forming what can be conceptualized as a zigzag, spiraling, back and forth movement. So what’s considered active on the higher plane is passive on the lower, and what’s passive on the lower is active on the higher.

Will and Imagination

The active force of “will” on the higher plane forms a seed-image (thoughtform) in the faculty of the imagination that’s injected into the subconscious on the lower plane, providing it with a “life pattern” (memory) that it gestates and builds into an embryonic blueprint. This embryo formed in the womb of the subconscious is what’s commonly called the etheric double, astral body, or subtle body, which becomes the holographic blueprint for not only generating and giving life to the physical body, but the entire outer reality formed within the sphere of the mind that accompanies the body. This etheric blueprint remains in an embryonic, fluidic state and is continuously seeded by the conscious mind as a means of ushering in the life events that promote new stages of growth and development. It not only acts as the memory for generating and regenerating the physical body, but also for generating a correlated outer world constructed out of the same inner nature and memory as the body. While we can view the outer world as being projected by us through our perception of it, we can also view it as an extension of us, where it’s comprised of not only the known but also the unknown elements buried deep within our own psyche.

Toroidal field of mind
3-dimensional Monad – Electromagnetic Field

Likewise, many have been taught to think of our mind and body as being separate from each other, yet these can also be understood as being different aspects of the same thing, where our body is “located within” the center of a much larger sphere, forming a centralized perspective within a greater whole (Monad) as a means of “experiencing ourselves”. In order to properly understand this idea, we’d have to redefine what we mean when we use the term “self”. Most people relate to the idea of the “self” as being our body and personality, when, in reality, it may be referring to our entire material existence, because on the higher plane of the mind and soul, the lower plane of material reality exists in its “entirety” as a “memory”, and it’s through the relationship we form between the inner and outer aspects of ourselves that we “perceive ourselves as another” and form an experience of ourselves through our own perception. The outer world of reality and the inner world of feeling are extensions of each other and not separate entities. They exist as polarized aspects whose interaction serves to “stimulate each other” into existence, and together form a unified field as what appears to be an inner and outer reality.

This is why your outer world doesn’t change until your inner world does, and they change as an exact correspondence to each other. As we change our inner nature by developing our character, our experience of the outer world changes in the exact same degree and proportion. This is because they’re different aspects of the same thing, where the part contains the whole and the whole is comprised of the sum of its parts. The outer world is a metaphorical reflection of the inner world, and vice versa. Reality in the most basic sense is holographic in nature, produced by splitting a coherent, concentrated beam of light in two, forming polarized aspects, where one is directed by a “mirror” to be imprinted with an image (memory), forming a 2-dimensional form, and the other is reflected back onto the image as pure (scattered) light, blending into it, forming a 6-dimensional construct, that emanates from a central axis outward, forming a highly organized body of light.

Holographic nature of the mind

We exist simultaneously as the central axis possessed of electromagnetic poles, and as the outer sphere or toroidal field produced by an electromagnetic pulsation, where the “same energy” projects (discharges) outward in an active state, electrifying everything in its path, and then upon reaching a peripheral boundary, reverses polarity, becoming magnetic, and is drawn back into its center, where it then reverses polarity again, forming another projection. While we can view this as two separate forms of energy that are complementary to each other, in reality they’re a “single force” that’s polarized and functions systematically through “two states”, one that’s projective and one that’s receptive, and together they act to conceive and materialize their own projection. This doesn’t happen as a circulating motion – it happens at once, forming a coherent field of light that appears stable and stationary in the most basic sense, while also housing a great deal of activity that takes place within it. The outer forms the stage and setting that’s a complimentary theme for the inner character to act out its life story in a completely natural and congruent manner. One of the ways to grasp this idea is to realize that we’re on a globe (Earth) that’s spinning a thousand miles an hour on its axis while moving through space orbiting the sun at thousands of (67,000) miles an hour, while also being a part of a greater solar system that’s moving billions of miles an hour (140 miles a second) through our galaxy, and we experience “reality” as a fairly stable, somewhat calm construct of light.

Karmic Seed of Destiny

On the plane of the Superconscious, the entire life cycle of the soul is formed as an intrinsic design in its latent, unformed state of pure potential. This design, comprised of a dynamic set of attributes, qualities, and characteristics in varying degrees of development and potency, is formed out of the essence of all our previous experiences combined into a single state and coherent memory. This same principle works within our current life where all our experiences are molded into a single memory, called our paradigm. At the end of each life cycle, when the higher soul separates from the body, it absorbs all the experiences attained in that lifetime, and assimilates them to form a particular nature as our character (archetype), coupled with the memory of our own life creation. This holographic memory forms the life theme of our character and of our souls essence (inner nature), which combine to  become the seed for our next life cycle as a continuation of the same idea.

Tree with sunrays

An easy way to understand this idea is by looking at any seed in nature where, a cherry seed, for example, only has the potential and capacity to grow into a cherry tree. It can’t grow into an apple or peach tree because it’s perfectly designed with all the properties and elements necessary to produce a cherry tree. So, we can say with accuracy that the cherry seeds destiny is to become a cherry tree. The state and health of the cherry tree, however, is determined by what climate and conditions it’s planted in and how it grows within those conditions. If planted in the appropriate conditions – climate, soil, water, sun, etc., it grows into a healthy, robust tree, if not, it becomes spindly and frail and never grows to its full height and potential. But either way, as it matures and bears fruit, the fruit contains the seeds for producing more of the same type of cherry trees. The same principles operate consistently through all life as we know it, and we can come to understand our own nature and processes of growth and development by observing the laws of Nature.

Our karmic seed, contains the entire life plan as a life cycle, along with all the attributes and qualities in exact proportion, for systematically playing out the life plan as a natural process of growth and development within the environment and life situation we were born into. As the karmic memory-program of our souls continued development is projected (planted) into the lower, Astral Plane of Formation, it’s constructed into the astral form of our souls memory by the life force energy of our higher will, where it continues to operate through the systematic movement formed by polar aspects of the mind that are complementary to each other. On the higher plane of pure mind, memory and will (life force) are complementary features of each other, where the light body (hologram) of memory is constructed outwardly as a projection and outer reflection, forming the seed and egg for birthing itself on the lower plane of the subconscious.

3 levels of the mind

The Astral Plane of Memory – Will, Thought, and Emotion

This middle plane, called the astral plane, which connects the higher archetypal plane with the lower material plane, is also polarized, and exists as two levels that house complementary aspects of the mind while functioning in a harmonious manner. Each one performs a different operation in creating a single reality. As the conscious mind “births” and projects the subconscious into the complementary, lower region of the astral plane as a reflection of itself, a conversion takes place, and what functions as “will” on the higher plane becomes “emotion and desire” on the lower plane, and what functions as “memory” on the higher plane generates “thought” on the lower plane. All emotion is correlated with instinct (memory) to produce automatic reactions and behaviors, and thought is the basis for forming and recalling memories.

While they switch positions as they move from a refined state of consciousness to a denser one of unconsciousness, they still function in the same way and serve the same basic purpose. In an unconscious state they function as automated processes formed out of memory (instinct) driven by emotional impulses, and in a conscious state, they function as thoughtforms that serve to internally generate equivalent emotions. Will is the active-electric force on the higher plane and emotion is the motivating force on the lower plane, and likewise, memory is the passive force on the higher plane, while thought is a passive construct on the lower plane. On the lower plane memory and thought are formed the same way in the faculty of the imagination, and one can be used to transform the other one, and both serve to generate feelings and emotions while also possessing the ability to transform them. As we think by forming internal representations, we generate emotions in response to our own thoughts, and as we dwell in memories of the past, we keep ourselves tuned to the same emotions we were experiencing when we formed the memories, and act to “recreate” the same type of emotional dramas of the past, in the present. As we form thoughts given life by strong feelings and emotions, we set the vibratory frequency internally for organizing and assembling the same type of ideas outside of us as a means of experiencing our own mental creations.    

Inner self and higher mind

The higher mind contains the entire lower plane within it as a form of “predestiny”, where if we remain in a primarily unconscious state and never realize that we have the ability to direct our own life using the power of imagination and will, our destiny plays out in a completely natural way that seems beyond our control. If however, we begin waking up to the fact that we have the ability to use our conscious mind to direct our subconscious in manifesting our life in a more intentional manner, we can participate in our own evolution by advancing ourselves along our souls path. Either way, we still follow a somewhat predestined path because it’s engrained in our very nature, and comes naturally through our vision for our life, what we desire and feel passionate about, what we naturally gravitate towards and have an interest in, preferences, character traits, and so on. The difference is we can impose a new direction on our life, heal ourselves of psychological issues, practice mastering our lower nature, and greatly advance our own evolution by simply learning how to operate our own mind-body system. Our physical world doesn’t matter in the ultimate sense, because its temporary and dissolves at death, it’s the “type of experiences” we create “through” our physical circumstances that are eternal and become imprinted as a permanent record in the Akashic field of Astral Light.

Life Patterns

 When we live out of a predominantly unconscious state, where we imagine ourselves to be separate and set apart from our own outer projection, we experience everything as happening to us and beyond our ability to control it or direct its course of activity. We don’t recognize our own karma as being the fruit and seed of previous incarnations and so we lack a sense of direction and responsibility. In this instance, our destiny comes as an automated process that takes place without our direct awareness, where we’re being pulled along in a life current, and we experience ourselves as being an alien within our own manifestation. We don’t realize that our world is being created by us on the higher level of our conscious, willful mind, and that we have the ability to wake up and become conscious of our own dream, and pull ourselves ashore, where we can view life as it flows by in an automated state. Once we’re able to realize what our karma is and how that forms the basis for the unconscious activity of our current life experience, we can step into our higher mind and begin actively participating in creating and evolving our own life pattern. We can impose a direction on our life instead of being swept along in a helpless fashion.

There’s really no such thing as a personal destiny or personal will because these are a primary function and operation conducted by our higher mind which exists as the greater whole, and not as a part that transitions blindly through synchronized phases of the whole. But this can be difficult to understand due to our limited awareness of our self and our life being contained within the greater whole, and therefore unable to comprehend or conceive of it in its entirety. When we remain unaware of the fact that our life is our own creation, and we don’t understand the true nature of karma, we don’t recognize how we’re creating all of it using both our conscious and unconscious mind, then our life is predestined and transpires in what seems like an automated process. While in a predominantly unconscious state, destiny is approached more as a vision for your life that lays the foundation for a series of goals. We’re taught to visualize the reality we want to create as a material object or situation, instead of focusing on the type of experience we want to attain as a “feeling”. We then approach will as though it’s about effort in making something happen that may not be happening naturally on its own, or by resisting our own tendencies and compulsions. In this case our life is predestined and pretty much takes place without our director awareness of what’s happening and the reason it’s happening.

Higher and lower self

Karma, Will, and Destiny

Karma, will, and destiny are the same thing in the most fundamental sense. There’s no meaningful way to separate these ideas in terms of how they work together in forming the same reality as a coherent state. We can only separate them by classifying them according to their native plane in order to gain an understanding of how they function as a universal (primary) law. The higher plane of the conscious mind is the active life force that constructs a living matrix of light out of the holographic model of memory, which is then translated on the lower plane of the subconscious as emotion, passions, and desire. Destiny is formed by habitual patterns of memory compelled into an active state by the life force energy of will and emotions. As long as we live out of habitual routines and reactive behaviors that form correlated thoughts and feelings, nothing changes and we remain locked into our own karmic patterns which repeat in a rhythmic fashion based on how they’re adapted to different situations that cause them to play out in a somewhat different way.

The Astral Plane of the Aether, the Akashic Field of Cosmic Memory, and the Yetzirah World of Formation

Once we become aware of our own nature and dual aspects of our mind and how they function harmoniously in creating our reality and life out of karmic patterns, we can begin utilizing the different aspects of our being in a masterful way to self-create and determine what our life is going to be about. We can design and execute our own life experiences, which can be attained through a variety of material situations and circumstances. The faculty of the mind shared by both the conscious and unconscious, which serves as the medium of communication between them, is the imagination. Will on the lower plane functions as a kinetic force, whereas on the higher plane it’s a constructive force that designs a etheric template by translating thought into a picture or image that imitates an actual memory. This etheric holographic construct is used by the subconscious in the same way it uses memory, to build it into the existing outer reality as a means of experiencing it.

All memory, which exists as an internal mental construct formed out of astral light (subtle energy), is created by the higher mind through the faculty of the imagination, which is what the lower subconscious mind uses as “patterns of activity” (instinct) that are activated by emotion and play out in an automated fashion. We can take an existing memory and transform it in our imagination, producing an etheric template as a metaphor that provides our subconscious with a creative directive and command for what to build as an outer experience (our subconscious is obedient). We have to provide it with a seeded-idea as a thematic pattern that it can build into our existing mental model in a congruent and ecological way where it becomes a natural part of our outer world allowing us to form an “experience of it”. The experiences produced are then absorbed back into our mind and integrated into our current life memory base (model), growing and evolving it by way of any new variations acquired.

On the higher plane of creation, will acts to construct images that represent an idea in such a way that it’ll generate a natural emotional response. The subconscious uses this metaphorical idea as an actual memory and builds it into our existing mental paradigm where it becomes known through our ability to perceive it as a natural part of our outer world. This occurs naturally through different stages of growth, where ideas come to us through a form of inspiration, and as we take them in and begin thinking about them, we shape them into a sensory reality in our mind’s eye by adapting them to our mental model. Once they’ve integrated into our mental sphere, they’re birthed as a natural outgrowth.

Our mental paradigm, which is constructed out of synthesized memory, forms the “mental filters” and “lens” we “look through” to perceive and reconstruct our outer world to form a mirror image of it. It vibrates at a frequency that reforms the outer world to match it through resonance. Once we recognize the memory-patterns we’re playing out consistently in our life, we can work to alter them using the higher power of our will by reshaping them metaphorically in our imagination to form a new pattern that will bring a new type of activity and experience. This must be done in a gradual manner where the new pattern can be harmoniously integrated into the existing pattern, modifying and upgrading it. When we attempt to introduce an idea that’s too far apart or different from our existing paradigm, it can’t be logically integrated and is rejected instead. Change has to be produced in a gradual manner as a natural growth process that harmoniously moves from one state to an alternate state. The new idea being introduced has to be complementary to the existing idea and formed as an increment or phase of development. By utilizing the magical powers of our imagination we can act on our own memories to transform and morph them.

When we work in this manner to gradually transform our karmic patterns formed as memory, we begin taking control and directing our own destiny by systematically resolving our karma. As we become conscious and aware within our own life creation, we can learn how to operate our own mind in becoming self-determined, sovereign, and the author of our own life story. As we transform our inner archetypal nature the outer world changes as a direct reflection of it, and we combine the two as a means of experiencing ourselves in new ways, producing new types of memory that are accumulated and built-up overtime, reshaping our current life memory to tell a new type of story. As we act on ourselves to reshape our character and inner way of producing experiences, we simultaneously dissolve karmic patterns, replacing them with new upgraded ones, and we become the author of our own destiny, which ultimately forms the karmic seed for our next life cycle, and we progress consciously in becoming our own creator.

Existing Simultaneously in Multiple Dimensions – The Two Stages and Levels of Spiritual Awakening

The idea of spiritual awakening refers to “self-awareness”, and this awareness can take place on 2 levels simultaneously. Shifts in awareness usually come as fleeting moments where we truly transition into a different state of awareness that has a profound quality to it. As we step into a new way of perceiving the world as a kind of altered reality, it allows us to see things in a way that introduces us to a whole new way of being. This often comes as a deepened form of concentration where we literally exist intimately in a whole new realm that coexists within our ordinary one, where it gives us an entirely different sense of ourselves. In our ordinary reality we exist as a “part within a greater whole”, where we often feel completely detached and estranged from the very reality we’re a fundamental part of. We normally experience ourselves as “being in here” while reality itself is “out there”. We feel as though we have no control or in say-so terms of reality itself. While we may contemplate the idea of existing on multiple dimensions simultaneously, where we form an abstract idea of it as an imaginary concept or theory, once we honestly make the shift into an expanded version of ourselves, we experience ourselves as being in it as a direct and immediate experience.

The first stage of awakening usually comes as becoming more aware of our outer environment, the activities going on at the subtle level, or connecting intimately with the inner nature and essence of things. Where we start realizing our own tendencies and the consequences of our actions. This stage of waking up within our own dream, is like lucid dreaming where our conscious mind becomes active at the same time our subconscious is in the leading role. Normally, as soon as our conscious mind ‘wakes up’ and becomes active, our state of mind shifts into a kind of parallel dimension that seems to encompass or contain the subconscious vision within it. We move gradually from an inner awareness that’s symbolic in nature and exists outside of our perception of ‘time’, to an outer awareness that’s literal and somewhat stationary, where it seems somewhat frozen in time.


The initial stages of awakening come when we begin learning how to employ both aspects of our mind at the same time, where they form reality as a continuum. We start to become aware of our own subconscious mind and come into direct contact with our feelings and our inner nature formed out of our memories, which all seem to be woven together to form a cohesive construct as a particular type of experience. We not only begin exercising our ability to self-reflect and move between two dimensions simultaneously as a deeper form of realization, but we also start seeing into the subtle realm playing out all around us at the unconscious level. We begin tuning into (looking beyond physical appearance) the inner essence of everything around us and we get an immediate sense of their character and what’s motivating their actions. We form a heightened awareness around how it is that we’re being stimulated by whatever and whomever is around us or interacting with us in some way, whether actually or energetically.

As we’re being stimulated by an outside force of some kind, the same quality being expressed is stimulated and arises within us in response to it, giving us direct knowledge of it as an internal experience. If we allow these qualities to spontaneously arise inside of us without distorting, ignoring, or manipulating them through our own thoughts, we can tune into a whole new level of reality playing out within this one at the subtle level that lies just below our ordinary awareness. Once we begin developing this ability, we not only come into direct contact with the subconscious mind, as the ‘group mind’ of the material world, but also the realization that our conscious mind of outer awareness is always acting to view and experience the ‘projection’ being produced by our own subconscious. Our subconscious, which is an aspect of the group mind as our outer reality, is the part of our mind that’s creating our physical reality as a mental construct, and our conscious mind, which forms our outer awareness is what witnesses our own creation and has its ‘being’ within it.

We use one part of us to produce our reality and another part of us to experience our self through that reality as an integral part of it. Once we start forming this level of awareness, we have the key to our own healing as bringing the unconscious aspects of ourselves that we’ve judged and repressed into awareness through our outer reality, where we can consciously integrate them using our rational mind in a congruent manner. Through psychological healing we bring both aspects of our material mind into harmony as being a ‘continuation’ of each other as a single whole or unified field. We understand the different functions each part of our mind performs in creating a greater whole, and we keep them fully active within our awareness as our normal state of being. This new level of ‘self-awareness’ that brings new knowledge of who we really are is life-altering and brings a form of thoughtfulness as self-contemplation. We start being able to naturally realize the consequences we produce not only through what we say and do, but also begin realizing the power of our own thoughts in shaping our reality through the Law of Cause and Effect.

vibration transformation

The Second Stage of Awakening – “Transformation”

Once we begin developing the ability to keep both aspects of our material mind (subconscious and self-conscious) active at the same time in terms of our awareness, where intuition blends with our intellect and deepens how we’re experiencing things, we begin moving into the second stage of awakening. This stage comes as a form of ‘rebirth’ into a whole new level of being. To understand this transformation of conscious awareness, we must form a working concept of the nature of planes, dimensions, and realms of being. These mental levels are commonly portrayed in two basic ways, one as a hierarchical structure, where a smaller field exists harmoniously within a greater field of the same nature, or energetic sheaths as layers, called ‘bodies’, that all function as different aspects of a greater whole. Both models convey the idea of one level of reality being fully contained within and as a fundamental part of a greater level of reality. These levels or layered bodies not only represent different levels of consciousness as states of mind, but also different levels of the Soul that provide different experiences of itself.

While we tend to talk in abstract terms about vibration, frequency, and energy, we must begin defining these terms as a particular type of self-awareness that bring entirely new ways of experiencing ourselves. As we’re able to start awakening within our own reality by merging our two minds into a single state where they’re both active at the same time, and we start gaining a steady realization that what we perceive as an outer reality that appears to be apart from us is being produced by our own subconscious, we awaken within our own dream, so to speak. This awareness lays the foundation for a natural shift into an even higher level, where we literally start shifting into a higher or greater plane where we not only “see” and conceptualize reality as a whole, but where we actually experience our ‘self’ as the entire “field of reality”. We move as a unified field of consciousness and the sense of separation disappears completely. We not only stay “awake in the present moment”, where we pay attention to what’s happening around us, but we have a strange new sense of being reality itself. Its as though when we move, the entire field of reality moves with us as an extension of ourselves. We gain a direct awareness of reality being formed in a constant way as a reflection of our own thoughts about it. As we think and form mental pictures of our thoughts, we create them as a corresponding reality and experience our self “as” them.


The Illusion of Time and Space

Along with this heightened awareness comes a new sense of “time and space”. We’re no longer lost in the moment and move through an extended series of events that are all correlated through a dynamic series of unconscious states, where we remain disconnected and unaware of how it is we’re creating through a constant process of cause and effect, but instead remain aware in a constant and extended fashion. As we act, we form a direct vision and immediate awareness of what we’re causing through our actions. It’s no longer ‘time-related’ or mysterious. When the effect we create comes at a later time, we still recognize it as a natural response to our own actions. We don’t lose an awareness of what it is we’re causing no matter how long it takes to play out. Intuition becomes our main form of perception and we begin seeing everything as a reflection of ourselves.

From this level of awareness, we begin comprehending the universal laws, not as an intellectual concept, but as the very nature of our experience. We have a direct awareness that the thoughts we form as mental pictures (light construct within the mind) and infused with the sensation of our life-force, causes them to vibrate with life, both on the inner and outer planes at the same moment. Vibration has both a pattern of the thought inherent in it and a self-organizing mechanism and operates simultaneously between parallel planes through ‘polarity’. The vibration as a frequency, formed by all our thoughts as a theme on the inner planes of our paradigm, acts to vibrate the outer/lower plane causing it to take the same shape as a reflection of our thoughts. Our thoughts are causal in nature and create the outer world and lower plane as a corresponding effect. Our inner, upper world of imaginary thought is similar to the world of our nightly dreams in the sense that they serve as a kind of metaphorical representation that’s used as a theme (greater pattern) for shaping the outer reality to be of the same idea on a larger scale. Our thoughts are a form of ‘archetype’ that can be applied to any number of conditions and circumstances, and through a process of adaptation, modified to produce a new variation as a ‘type’ of experience. Our thoughts don’t create as an exact outer formation of the same imaginary image, but as a “corresponding idea” that brings the same “type of experience”. The physical formation is only significant in terms of how it sets the stage for producing a particular kind of experience.

personal universe

The Mental Sphere of Reality Viewed from a Higher Plane of Awareness

What we perceive as the sphere (reality) around us is actually our own mind on a higher level and is always being organized with our vitalized thoughts and emotions, which keep us tuned to our soul’s frequency. The space around us is impressed with our soul’s signature as the frequency formed by our mental paradigm that reflects back to us the reality of our thoughts. It’s our own creation that we project as a means of experiencing ourselves. This field of light around us is magnetic and acts to absorb and form a mental impression of our thoughts as a permanent record of them. This field of organized information is the intrinsic nature of our own mind on a higher and all-inclusive plane that we perceive through our inner nature. Our mind (soul) acts on this field to organize it into a mental construct as a kind of etheric blueprint for creating our reality as the means of experiencing ourselves through our own creation as a story we tell about ourselves. The same principles operate on all levels and scales of existence through a chain of association that comes as a series of correspondences that uses an invisible idea to form a material reality. As we awaken within our material reality and realize that it’s all being constructed and projected by our subconscious, and that our conscious awareness is the part of us that perceives and witnesses our own mental creation, we also realize that the entire lower plane is being organized and animated by “us” on a higher plane as the means of experiencing ourselves through our own creation.

Reality as its experienced from a higher level comes as more of what we can think of as a ‘holomovement’. Not as a hologram of a single image or idea, but as an entire reality that’s used to form that idea. As we think, we form the reality of our thoughts as a means of previewing and experiencing them. We’re not our body, our body is a fundamental part of our own creation and is what allows us to enter into our own projection as a natural part of it. What we refer to as our “self” is our Soul, which exists on higher planes or outside of our material existence as our “mind”, or the sphere of organized information in which all reality exists. We are reality itself as both the part and the whole, the inner and the outer, the upper and the lower. These different aspects of ourselves exist simultaneously as a single reality where each aspect plays a particular role in playing it out as the means of coming to “know ourselves” through our own mental creation. We’re both the creator of our reality and the one experiencing it as a way of knowing our self. It’s only our perception of being separate that causes us to get lost in the illusion of our own making.

Once we awaken and begin living out of the awareness that we’re creating our reality and our self through our own thoughts, we can no longer remain asleep and we have to begin working to develop greater mental skills in creating. Instruction for developing these mental skills is given to us as universal laws, which are the laws of the mind and the means through which we create in a conscious and responsible way. Once we wake up and become aware that we are constantly creating our reality through our thoughts, we’re also met with a new kind of responsibility for our own creation. We can no longer produce and play a part in dysfunctional situations while claiming to be a victim and not knowing what we’re doing. This stage of development comes as a spiritual awakening where we step into our higher-self, and begin laying the foundation necessary for developing mastery over our own mind and ability to regulate our own actions. Once we begin creating with a deeper sense of self-awareness, we also become fully responsible for what we create and have the key for determining our own destiny. Not in terms of the material world of unconscious delusions, but as our soul in charge of its own evolutionary process to higher and more conscious levels of being.

Symbols are Living Entities on the Inner Planes that Produce Corresponding Realities in the Outer World

If we hold a symbol of some kind in our mind and concentrate on in a single-minded fashion, while setting an intention of penetrating its deepest secrets, our attention acts as a kind of prompting mechanism that causes it to come alive and start unfolding as an evolutionary flow that steadily culminates into a whole idea. When we clear our mind of random thoughts that run through it continuously in a habitual fashion, and focus coherently on a single image or idea, our attention acts as a stimulating force that magnetizes it with our life-force energy, causing it to begin vibrating, and coming alive as a result. As we concentrate on an idea we begin systematically fashioning it in our imagination as a light-form by defining it with sensory attributes. As it starts becoming vivid with sensory details, it produces a corresponding sensation in our whole being, where it comes alive and starts moving in a fluid-like motion as a process of unfolding. It unfolds by moving through a dynamic sequence where it takes on numerous features as it expands into a full array of possibilities as a kind of growth process. As a symbol comes alive and begins morphing into a synchronized flow of various possibilities, it begins slowly revealing it’s hidden secrets to us while we simply watch it.

Symbols are similar to the archetypes they represent and are a form of “seed” which, when planted in the fertile mind of the subconscious, grow into whole realities that exist in a constant state of evolving through endless variations of itself as a means of “becoming”. Symbols represent whole ideas that are grown in the mind of each individual in a way that’s unique to that individual, because the growth and evolutionary process that takes place is based on correspondences, and how it’s adapted to combine with other complementary elements to form modifications of itself. This process of adaptation as new and unique combinations that form amalgamations that imbue it with new attributes and characteristics that changes it’s form and how it appears in a moment by moment manner, is symbolic of the mind itself and how it operates in creating unique versions of itself as a whole reality. Although things appear stationary on the outer plane of material formation, on the inner planes of living ideas everything exists in a constant process of transformation as an evolutionary growth process of “becoming”. Nothing is stagnate or fixed, and is always moving and flowing into new forms of itself.

In our material existence there’s a constant attempt to make living ideas finite and absolute, where they appear the same to everyone, and we glorify the idea of being “right or wrong” based on the consensus of the group mind. We grasp at concepts given to us by others as a means of being accepted and fitting in to our peer group, or arguing somehow in an attempt to prove we’re right, but on the higher or inner planes of pure mind and spirit, we are all creators in every moment through our ability to think in ways that are unique to us as a means of self-expression. When we exist as a part of the group mind, we fail to utilize and develop the power of our higher, divine nature as a creator and artist. On the higher planes of the conscious mind, we exist fully within our divine nature and are always in the process of “creating” in every moment by how we shape our thoughts into realities in our imagination as a way of experiencing them.

When we’re told what to imagine and picture in our mind, by either being taught conventional ideas or led through a guided meditation of some kind, we only create stationary, static ideas that classify us in the category of being a highly trainable animal. When we focus our mind instead on universal symbols that represent archetypal ideas, and allow a spontaneous process of emergence and becoming to take place without needing or attempting to control and direct how it unfolds or what it acts to reveal, a magical unfolding occurs, and the reality produced is our own unique creation. We should never take an attitude of trying to compare our idea to other people’s ideas about the same thing, or start modifying our realization to somehow conform to theirs out of fear that we might be wrong somehow. It’s only on the lower plane of the animal-plant subconscious that creativity as uniqueness and individuality don’t exist, and as a human being, given the higher capacity of creativity, we use our imagination to create whatever it is we’re told we should create. Only at this lower level are people turned into mindless robots out of a desperate need to fit in and be accepted as a part of a group of other mindless robots. On the higher plane of the true “conscious mind”, intelligence reigns as creativity and our innate ability to create ourselves as individuals.

Most ancient texts of both spiritual and scientific knowledge, which are actually the same thing, are nearly always written in glyphs and the universal language of symbols. This is because not only do they require interpretation, but a single image contains the seed for a whole idea, which when contemplated, generates a whole series of correlated ideas as a chain of association. On the higher planes of cosmic intelligence ideas exist as archetypes, which serve as a prototype or basic concept for generating infinite variations of the same idea. These archetypal ideas act as a “seed of potential” that form based on how they’re combined with other ideas to form an amalgamation that remix the basic formula of attributes and qualities to form new characteristics. The form something takes on is based on the characteristics it possess, which also determine how it functions and behaves. Form always determines function as the natural operation it acts to perform in an automatic way through purely natural behaviors.

How a symbol unfolds within the mind of an individual is based on the unique set of characteristics they possess as their mental paradigm. Each one of us has a unique character, temperament, conditioned tendencies, way of thinking and perceiving, level of education and training, different types of life experiences, maturity, racial background, and so on, and when we each take the same symbol and concentrate on it while setting an intention to acquire its hidden knowledge, it’s adapted to our mental model and modified accordingly. Through a process of adaptation and modification that makes it “like us”, it forms within our imagination in a way that makes it a unique idea as our “own creation”. As human beings emerged within the subconscious of the Earth’s astral plane, we’re always taking universal ideas as archetypes and using them to form a personal creation. Each one of us is meant to be artists in our own right as a means of exercising and developing the higher capacities of our mind as the creator of our own life. Whatever we combine with in mind and spirit, we become like in character, and we take on new qualities as characteristics that alter our behavior by altering how we think about things, and how we form our thoughts into realities in our imagination.

For example: Many people aren’t quite sure what an archetype that serves as a prototype for creating is, because they get stuck on the finite material concept used to represent it. An “idea” comes as a means of creating an “experience” through a material reality. An archetype of “cup” is formed as a basic concept for the purpose of “drinking”. We start with a basic concept of a container that will serve the purpose of holding liquid of some kind so we can engage in the activity of drinking. A symbol is used to represent the basic shape of a cup or chalice as a concept for designing one. When that symbol is held in the mind and concentrated on, all kinds of different ideas about possible ways to make a container start to propagate fluently based on the association made to possible materials and supplies immediately available to you. Various type of ideas come as a cup made with different materials, styles, colors and designs, while still holding true to the concept of a cup. You pick one of your imagined ideas that seems to be best suited for what you want and need, and you proceed to make a cup that’s your own unique design.

The symbol served as the concept out of which numerous possibilities systematically emerge based on how you associate it to other known ideas about the same thing. So symbols, whether a single image or composite or geometric design, serves as a kind of seed for the idea it represents and will systematically generate a whole plethora of ideas related to it. This is the genesis of creation, often referred to as “conception and gestation”. A basic concept is activated within a fertile mind and a chain of association spontaneously unfolds as a sequence of possibilities. When one possibility is selected, held in place, and developed by infusing it with attributes and sensory qualities, we begin shaping it with detail and it’s brought alive within us as a result. The more we continue to define it with sensory details as color, texture, touch, appearance, sound, feeling, smell, and so on, we infuse it with our magnetism as our life-force, and it begins “vibrating” as the frequency associated with the pattern as a construct. This internal construct defined as a specialized idea and brought alive by infusing it with our life force, forms a etheric-shell that serves as a template for producing as a material reality of a corresponding nature that can be “experienced” on the outer plane.

Once an idea is brought alive on the inner plane by activating it and causing it to begin vibrating as a specialized frequency, polarity is formed as complementary aspects that interact with each other, where the same idea is contacted and begins organizing on the outer plane as a correlated manifestation. Just as vibration is formed by the movement between complementary aspects of the same thing that begin moving in sync with each other around and between electromagnetic poles as a rhythmic spiraling movement, this same movement takes place between the active inner and the stationary outer, bringing them together as a reflection of each other. The inner idea, alive with sensation as an inner experience that’s “symbolic in nature”, connects through association to the elements of the “same idea” in the outer world, and becomes a “perceptual filter” as a kind of “lens” we “look through” that makes everything of a corresponding nature “stand out”, and as we non-gallantly scan the environment as we go through our day, ideas of a similar nature stand out and we notice them. As we notice them we’re drawn into them and we begin interacting with them mentally by associating them with being the same type as the idea formed on the inner plane.

This is where allot of people fail to recognize their own manifestations, because they expect the outer manifestation to match the inner idea in appearance, instead of realizing the idea born in their mind is an archetypal metaphor used as a primary concept for organizing variations of itself by entering into and combining with whatever exists naturally within the immediate environment to form a unique variation. The inner construct serves as a conceptual idea that serves to direct and connect our attention to any ideas associated with it as a correspondence in the outer environment. Whatever is formulated using the imaginary capacity of the mind serves as a universal idea that connects with the same idea within our personal life as an analogous idea of the same kind and type. The outer appearance something takes on is just the casing, shell, or outer garment for the inner idea it serves as a vehicle for.

This same process of evolutionary design that’s always fluxing and flowing into new variations of itself based on association and adaptation also occurs in creative processes, where an internal concept or vision is used to design and construct an outer material formation of the same kind that can be “experienced”, shared, and utilized somehow. Iconic or symbolic art, for example, will stimulate a whole internal imaginary process in the viewer. When an artist goes to create something they have to start with a fairly vivid vision or concept of what they’re going to create as an “idea that brings a particular type of experience”. All art is designed to provide a “seed” which, when contemplated or experienced activates and sets a whole series internal processes into motion. A painting, for example, isn’t about the object or image being used, it’s about using the image as an idea that prompts a feeling and stimulates an internal process as a chain of associated ideas that start flowing and unfolding and takes them on an imaginary journey of self-realization. It sets the mood out of which a kind of reverie comes alive inside their imagination as an idea that begins unfolding as a reality.

As you form a fairly vivid concept that’s meant to capture an idea as a feeling, you lay it out on the canvas in basic shapes that are proportioned properly, and with a fair amount of detail needed to construct it in a logical manner. You pick your palette of colors based on the mood and ambiance desired, and as you start painting, you don’t try to rigidly constrain it, but instead let it begin taking on a life of it’s own. You allow it to continue evolving as you paint it based on new thoughts and associations that come as a result of the process undertaken. The object or image itself only acts as a metaphorical representation for the idea being captured and conveyed as a feeling. The idea is that when someone else views it they get a distinct feeling as a kind of mood, and the idea it symbolizes stimulates them in a way that causes them to have a specific type of experience that’s unique to them as their “own creation” on the inner planes of their mind. Art of all kinds invokes creativity and self-expression in everyone who engages in it as an “experience” of the same idea.

The same type of process occurs in inventions and innovative discoveries. An idea comes to mind, and it’s initially captured by writing it down or sketching it out as a basic idea, and then the basic idea is developed conceptually with detail until it can serve as a kind of diagram or blueprint for constructing a material object or machine. As you start to construct or manufacture it, new realizations form based on whether or not it’s working like you thought it would, or better ideas as modifications to your original design spontaneously come to you as you’re building it, and you tweak and redesign it as you go, until the finished product performs the way you intended it to. You allow it to breathe and evolve as a “living idea” as part of your creative process.

All of us are doing this on the inner planes of our mind based on how we think about something, and then visualize our thoughts as a reality in our imagination. As we continue to think about the same idea, we develop it in new ways based on how we combine it with other ideas or various scenarios as a means of shaping it with new attributes and characteristics that evolve it into new variations of itself. As we shape an idea with sensory detail in a way that gives us an experience of it, it serves to invoke correlating feelings and emotions, which bring it alive with movement. Thoughts that we dwell in with intense feelings and emotion come alive with vibration and become polarized with the outer world of stationary manifestation. Our outer world is manifest (arranged) by us as a correspondence to our inner world. We don’t realize this because our inner, imaginary world born out of our sensationalized thoughts serves as a symbolic representation that’s metaphorical in nature and sets the pace for our outer world as a corresponding theme. What acts as the “bridge” that connects the inner with the outer is the feeling they give us as an experience.

An idea (or memory) formed on the inner planes as an experience that causes us to feel sad, for example, will serve an an archetypal matrix that forms a perceptual lens for only seeing and constructing a similar idea in the outer world, which will serve to bring us more experiences that cause us to feel sad. Sad thoughts produce sad realities. The outer reality may not come in the same form as the inner thoughts, but it will give us the same feeling as a type of experience. Many don’t realize this because they think it’s about the “appearance” an idea takes on, which they think is fixed on the inner plane in the same way it is on the outer plane, and they look outside for the same idea they formed inside, instead of realizing that the outer manifestation comes as constant variations of the inner idea based on the elements available in the immediate environment being used to construct it and play it out as an experience.

Universal concepts that exist on the Spiritual plane as archetypes are used to construct and hold together the universe and are infinite in nature. They’re living ideas that are always in the process of regenerating as an infinite number of unique variations based on how they combine with the “mind” and take on the same attributes and qualities as the mind, and in doing so, form into new variations of themselves. All things that we perceive as being different from each other are in truth simply unique variations of each other formed by combining with different elements. The soul is an infinite being who manifests itself and its own reality as a means of “experiencing itself”. Experience comes as an idea that invokes a feeling out of which a dynamic series of realizations spontaneously emerge that brings us new insights into the true nature of things. It’s not based on the physical form or construct of reality, it’s based on how we use the material formation to invoke an internal response as an experience. Numerous situations can produce the same type of experience that leaves us with the same type of feeling. As we create our experiences we cultivate the feelings born out of them, and use those feelings to tell a story about things that give them meaning. Feelings, meaning, and experience are consistently cultivated as a “theme” that births our personal “myth”.

We are all archetypal beings and are always creating ourselves through metaphors we use as the means of experiencing ourselves as a specific type of person living a specific type of story. Our creative abilities come through our thoughts which are consistently being developed, defined, and evolved on the inner planes of our mind, and serve to form a symbolic idea as a vibratory frequency for connecting with the same idea on the outer plane. As we call forth the corresponding outer reality of our thoughts, we experience ourselves through that reality. We mistakenly believe our soul is our body and is disconnected from our reality, when the truth may be our soul is our “mind”, and is always in the process of creating itself through its own thoughts imagined as a reality. This reality vibrates at the frequency of our soul’s signature, and is used to project our outer reality as a means of experiencing ourselves through our own creation. Whatever we consistently cultivate on the inner planes of our imagination is magnetized with sensation and emotion and acts as the “archetypal seed” for stimulating and bringing forth in our awareness a corresponding outer reality of the same nature. As we call forth our own experiences, we shape our identity out of those experiences. This is what it means to be a creative archetypal being, bestowed with the ability to create ourselves by how we use our own mind and will to experience ourselves through generating our own “light-matrix” as an outer perception of our inner thoughts.

Evolution of the Mind, Body and Spirit – The Relationship Between Our Physical and Spiritual Nature

One of the problems we have in understanding our spiritual-energetic nature is we try to view it through the same model as our physical nature. Yet even how we tend to look at our physical nature is largely incorrect because we’ve been conditioned to a firm mindset based almost exclusively on material sciences which is usually only working with a fraction of the information involved, excluding the larger part of our physical make-up which is comprised of invisible fields and forces that are constantly operating within our physical apparatus. While we’ve been taught that our genes and physical make-up is “fixed” and permanent, and we are left at the mercy of whatever our genetic ancestry has given us, we now know scientifically, that this isn’t true.

Only 2% of our entire genetic composition goes into building the proteins that make up our body giving it the physical characteristics and general condition it exists in, while the other 98% (give or take) appears to be a memory processing biocomputer of sorts that’s being constantly programmed by our mind through our perception. As we perceive the world around us, and we process that information by interpreting it to give it meaning, and we build it into a story as a thematic reality that our mind is designed to tell, we simultaneously program the subconscious mind and DNA of the body with those same perceptions, and it acts to produce the material equivalent, both as our body and our outer reality. Everything around us in the material world of Nature is comprised of the same DNA and subconscious mind, both of which are “passive and receptive” in nature, and act as a receiver and transducer for various forms of information that it uses to reform the material body.

Just as the inner is always resonating and absorbing information from the outer and integrating it to become “like” the outer environment of which it’s a fundamental part and must function and survive in, the mind is always “in-forming the body” which serves as a vehicle and house for the mind within the material realm. There’s a constant morphing and transformation going on between parallel and inter-meshed dimensions as a natural means of adaptation that modifies and equalizes as a necessary evolutionary process that allows one aspect to exist and interact within another aspect. In order to exist, function, and operate within one plane or sphere, we have to “become the same” as that plane as a “mental condition” and energetic state.

The dynamic nature of the mind and soul

Likewise, the mind, which constructs the body as its physical equivalent, exists as a field of information that’s in a constant state of transformation through resonance, sympathetic induction, and coherence. It’s constantly being formed, unformed, and reformed by the information it resonates with all around it, that it naturally acts to absorb, integrate and metabolize, shifting and morphing its structure as a paradigm to be able to see and create in new ways. Our mind naturally takes in and becomes one with whatever consciousness it exists within near proximity of that’s of the same nature (kind) as it is (what it naturally resonates with). Whatever is “like us” we act to naturally unite with and become “like” by taking on and acquiring whatever unique characteristics it possesses that are of the same nature, which means we can easily and naturally act as a vehicle or means for expressing it.

The spirit, which exists more as a life-force energy that “activates” and provides the power or energy, so to speak, for producing biological processes as regeneration, growth, and development into fully functioning systems, never actually takes on a form of any kind in the basic sense, but acts more as a fluid-like electricity that temporarily takes on shape of the form it serves to produce by coupling with matter, forming the energetic matrix as a form of lattice that helps structure and hold it together through tension (electromagnetic field), and fuels it’s operation as life giving biological processes. When the spirit leaves the body, it’s no longer “held together” and consciously operated, and so it “dies” and begins disintegrating and decomposing.

The soul acts as a medium that’s comprised of both spirit and essence, and uses the lower mind as a vehicle, just as the mind uses the body for a vehicle. The soul is the essence that spirit couples with to produce a material form out of the memory of itself that’s self-produced through the vehicle of the lower (subconscious) mind and the body (DNA). It operates and is formed by the same evolutionary process of adaptation and modification that’s comes from becoming one with different aspects of itself (frequency, type, and nature) to form a new whole. We only grow and evolve into something else through acquiring diverse qualities that enhance and develop our character in some way that changes our experience of ourselves, providing the soul with new forms of memory that modifies how it creates itself. By acquiring new kinds of experiences that act to “re-inform it”, the soul’s frequency is altered and the pattern as a paradigm inherent within that frequency, and how it naturally acts to structure all aspects of its material existence are altered simultaneously.

The beauty of the material world - two trees intermingled

All of life that exists in the phenomenal world is created by combinations as coupling between various levels and degrees of the energetic and material world. Each level of complexity is achieved through added layers of consciousness that bestow it with higher and more diverse capacities that act to increase the complexity of its existence. All of the lower world of physical Nature has a soul, mind, and body or physical form. The soul is the accumulated and coherent memory of the kind, type, or species of which it’s a part of, that acts through the subconscious of the collective unconscious to configure the DNA accordingly to produce the etheric hologram (phantom) used as the blueprint for cellular regeneration, specialization, and spatial orientation (mapping) to produce the form as the bio-system of its memory. DNA is like the hardware and the soul the software that determines what operations are performed and conducted by the hardware. The soul, like the mind, is triune in nature as a Higher Soul, collective soul, and individual soul, all of which are produced by the higher aspect coupling with the lower and producing that same aspect on a lower plane as the process of descending from a higher plane of pure energy and unity into a lower plane of division and being located within a greater reality, all of which are various aspects of itself used to produce the reality it exists “within” (fields nested within greater fields) or by expression of the memory its composed of that come through experiences of its own making.

We are constantly in the process of forming and reforming based on what we resonate with, and absorb and become one with in everything around us. Our body, which is the product of our mind, is in a constant state of regenerating itself. While our basic appearance and characteristics may not change much outside of maturing and aging, our internal nature as our character (soul) has the ability to change quite drastically based on what we blend with and bring into expression somehow through and “as” us. Yet, at the same time, because all growth and evolution is based on resonance with the same thing all around us, and the fact that we only grow in an intentional manner through awareness and using our own mind through directed attention, choice, and will, evolution that takes place in a completely unconscious and natural way, can be quite slow, and we can easily digress instead of progressing. It’s only when the higher faculties of the soul and mind are skillfully employed that we grow in a deliberate and substantial manner. If our higher capacities are not awakened within us, and we live with no real awareness of our true ability to self-create in an intentional manner, we simply live out of our conditioning like animals through “trained behavior” born out of a conditioned mindset, and we continue to blend with, readily take on and become one with, and bring into expression more of the same character, ideas, and experiences, reinforcing and strengthening existing memory instead of transforming and evolving it.

When we remain primarily unconscious and a part of the collective unconscious of humanity produced by our identification with our “animal body” that’s designed to function and operate in a completely automatic fashion through instinct and conditioning, and we never become practiced in developing our ability to think and reason for ourselves, and “decide” who and how we’re going to be, then employ those qualities to create our experiences of ourselves, acquiring the memory of those experiences in an accumulative and integrative fashion, reprogramming and reconditioning ourselves by way of our own hand, we become lost in the illusion born out of an unconscious state.

Mentoring for Personal Transformation and self-mastery

As humans we are both divine and animal. We have a higher nature and a lower nature, bridged and brought together as one by the medium of our individual soul, which contains the memory of both. Our divine nature exists as higher capacities of the mind that can directly influence and direct the reality produced by the lower mind, which exists in a primarily unconscious state that lacks the awareness and ability to self-create. In our lower state we are a product of our conditioning, and are trained to perceptions and behaviors by others who use their will to feed us suggestions. The lower mind of the material world is passive and receptive in nature and readily takes in the suggestions as ideas that form the thoughts and mental impressions of others, and uses them to generate more thoughts of the same nature, programming itself by way of those thoughts.

As we think, we imagine, and build whole realities out of our thoughts. These thoughts tune us to the vibration of those thoughts which has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it that produces the material equivalent as a pattern or dynamic structure. This material structure produced by the thoughts of the mind, equally programs “all” DNA and the subconscious, not only in the body as the channel for the thoughts to express, but also of the environment surrounding us, which is also a product of the subconscious mind as part of the collective unconscious that governs all of life and Nature, within which we exist as an inherent part. All of our experiences of what we perceive as an outer reality are produced by our subconscious mind, which works by passively taking in whatever thoughts and ideas are active around it. It only acts as a receptor of the will, which are thoughts and ideas being projected and transmitted all around it, or in the ideal situation, by its “own will” as the conscious mind which acts as the gatekeeper of the lower mind and decides what’s allowed to impregnate it, and grow into a reality as a result, and what’s not.

The will is the higher capacity of the mind that can direct the attention of the lower mind, and give it commands as seeded ideas that it wants to grow and produce, first internally through the imagination, then externally through our perception of it around us and our activities based on it. We can alter the content of our mind by deliberately choosing how we “re-inform it”. By intentionally giving it certain types of thought, we work “on ourselves” to recreate ourselves. By choosing what we expose ourselves to in terms of outer ideas being played out around us, what situations and activities we willingly participate in and associate with, what people we maintain relationships with of various sorts, and begin instead to remain fully conscious of how we’re creating ourselves through unconscious absorption and programming.

mental gears

When we remain fully awake and aware in even the most ordinary parts of our life, and actively choose what we “let in” and allow to take hold by continuing to think about it, and what we act to censor, edit, and keep out of our subconscious mind, we begin creating ourselves in a deliberate and powerful way. We step fully into our only “true responsibility” with a fully awake and aware mind. We begin the process of creating ourselves exactly as we want to be, instead of just “ending up” the way we are due to our conditioning where we were created and established by others through a predominately unconscious state and a complete lack of self-awareness.

Once we wake up within our own life and become fully aware, we begin realizing that in every moment we’re deciding what to let in, take on and become a part of, and create ourselves to be “like” as a result. We realize that even when we’re in relationships and situations that we need to be in in order to live, that we still maintain the ability to choose what we allow to affect us, and what we don’t. We can choose what we focus on, give our attention to, and think about, and what we don’t. When we walk away and leave a situation we can choose not to take it with us and continue thinking about it. We can bring a new awareness to our relationships and realize how they’re acting to develop us based on the character traits and dynamics being consistently demonstrated and acted out, and we can make new decisions based on the clarity that this brings as to whether or not to maintain them or let them go. We can decide with a new level of awareness what new types of relationships we form with new types of people, only choosing ones that we admire and respect and want to become more like. Ones that actively demonstrate desirable qualities and character that we’d like to develop in ourselves by way of the interaction it provides.

By realizing that we grow, develop, and evolve through whatever we naturally absorb, merge with, and blend together with energetically, we become more responsible and proactive in our own life. By realizing that our subconscious mind acts in a natural, non-willful way to absorb whatever ideas are being played out around it that it’s exposed to and exists within near proximity of, we can learn to only place ourselves intentionally in desirable situations, and actively act as the gatekeeper to filter what we consciously choose to let in or keep out. We can learn to utilize the power of our own will to intentionally program ourselves with the ideas we want to experience as a way of developing ourselves by way of those experiences. We can become aware of why we’re the way we are and employ the means to change our mind and our lives in whatever way we want to.

Creating a Vision for your Life – Choice, Will, and the Power of the Imagination

While many of us may say or feel as if we have a vision for our life, it’s usually more of a vague story that we keep running through our mind about what we want to do or what we’d rather be doing instead of what we’re doing now, or as a kind of fantasy that we treat more as a leisurely thought that provides us with a kind of coping mechanism or escape from our present situation. It’s hardly ever formulated into a precise idea with vivid details, or formed into a strategy as a plan of action that we then take consistent action towards. And while we can certainly say that a goal written down is far more likely to be accomplished than one that not, we can go a step further and say that a goal that’s turned into a vision as a reality or “well-formed outcome” that’s imagined as if it’s real and actual, then acted on in a consistent manner, is nearly always accomplished.

Many of us get into our life through random situations and relationships that we engage in spontaneously and then weave together in as congruent a manner as possible, and we just kind of end up somewhere in life through a form of default, or we start off with a dream as a kind of vision for our life, and get side tracked or pulled into other things that lead us away from it altogether, sometimes into a situation that we like even better, or sometimes as a means of sacrificing our dream for others and putting it on the back burner for “someday”, or giving it up all together, only to end up unhappy and feeling unfulfilled where resentment and regret sets in and begin eating at us little by little. Still others get pulled into the currents of their life early on and never really had a dream, or looked for who they are in a relationship that they then built their identity around, only to have it shattered at some point along the way when the relationship ran its course, began changing in the fundamental sense, or ended altogether, throwing them into an identity crisis of some form.

We are all born with some kind of dream for our life that’s a part of our essential nature, and exists as the most basic form of spiritual guidance there is that’s meant to lead us into our destiny. Every soul has an energetic composition as what forms our personality, basic character, and identity. Out of our character comes a natural form of story as ideas, situations, and activities that we naturally “see ourselves” engaged in and doing somehow. We have various forms of desire for certain ideas that we feel a natural connection to. Ideas that we have a kind of innate love for, interest in, and curiosity regarding, and we’re always moving towards and into them in a completely natural way. We picture ourselves in those types of situations doing those types of things, and it feels completely natural to us.

Mind blooming

When we participate in certain types of ideas and activities, we enter into a state of rapport and sympathy with them, uniting with them in body and mind, and have a heightened sense of being fully present in our own life as a form of natural concentration. We enter into an energetic current as a flow of consciousness where we lose all awareness of ourselves as separate and apart from our experience, and we literally have the experience of becoming one with something that’s greater than ourselves. What we dream of and desire to become one with as a means of experiencing ourselves through the feeling it gives us, we have an internal longing for that always keeps us dreaming of it and actively seeking it out in some manner. This dream as a sense of our life purpose, is relentless in nature and never really goes away, no matter how deep we bury it or how hard we try to ignore it.

To create a vision for our life means to recognize what our dream for our life is, embody that fully as an actual reality that we create in our imagination “as if” we’re actually experiencing it. As we imagine the idea as a situation or scenario, we imbue it with sensory information that brings it to life as an actual experience of it. We create details and crystalize it by asking questions like . . . what am I seeing? Then enhance the visual aspects in full vivid Technicolor. Then, what am I hearing? And create any sounds involved, no matter how small. Then, what am I touching and feeling? What am I smelling or tasting? What am I telling myself about my experience as my internal dialogue? Once we have a full sensory experience that’s sensuous and life-like, then we form a feeling of love for it, we infuse it with very positive emotions that make it desirable and extremely compelling. Then we allow it to take on a life of its own while noticing how we’re feeling and “being” in that situation. What parts of us are being brought out and expressed that make us become a certain “type” of person, and how we relate and associate with the experience. Who and how we become by way of the experience that’s different from the way we normally feel.

Once we’ve created it just as we want to experience it as an initial idea, we then incorporate it into other areas of our life to see how it will affect the other areas of our life, and we make whatever alterations and adjustments we need to in order to incorporate it in as congruent and harmonious way as possible. We keep reforming ourselves and the vision itself until it becomes a fully integrated idea that will work well in all areas of our life. If we can’t integrate it into a specific area or relationship in our life as it currently exists, then we know what decisions and changes we need to make, and what we need to give up or let go of in order to do it. Conflict and inharmonious ideas will only act to sabotage, contradict, or oppose the idea we’re going for and prevent us from achieving it. In order to truly manifest a new reality and way of being, we have to form an alignment with all areas of our life in a sympathetic and harmonious fashion, or they’ll act as emotional blocks and internal conflict, which may prevent our ability to create it or leave us filled with guilt of some kind.

Growing Reality

Once we have a fully integrated vision for our life, we play that vision like a movie over and over in our mind as various experiences within that life, until we create it as a “thought-form” that acts as a virtual memory or actual experience of reality, that the subconscious mind can use as if it were an actual memory, and uses it to connect us emotionally and energetically with that same idea in our outer environment. Concentrated thought as an idea brought into form as an imagined reality married to its emotional equivalent, literally becomes infused with our life-force energy which generates an electromagnetic field and takes on a life of its own as a separate entity, and both projects and stimulates that same frequency as an idea all around us, and magnetizes or attracts and draws to us, and us to it, that same idea as a set of circumstances or situation necessary for acting out that idea as an experience of that type of reality.

We give life to ideas through concentrated thought imagined as a sensory reality that invokes its complementary emotion as the electromagnetic force of the material plane. All matter as subtle energy is formed and arranged into structured patterns by the mind through the creative use of the imagination. A desire for something acts as a unifying, self-seeking force. We only desire what we love, and we can only love what we understand, and we only come to know and therefore understand by uniting (sympathetic induction) and becoming one with it (forming coherence). What we love we desire to become one with, and in union with it we gain knowledge of it by being it. Love and desire are the attractive, unifying force as the most natural use of the will, both higher will and lower will. We always know what we’re meant to do by what we have a natural connection and desire for.

A fully imagined idea as a feeling, sensory, and emotional reality, creates the pattern of an idea as a vibratory frequency that possesses electromagnetic properties. Thought shapes light as essence into archetypal forms that become prototypes for producing an equivalent or corresponding reality. An idea or archetype that’s dwelled upon, concentrated on, and infused with feelings and emotion, is the most basic form of prayer as a request, or as providing a template for the experience desired that serves to organize the natural forces of the material world, drawing us into the same type of reality in our immediate environment (through resonance).

Mental waves interacting and propagating through space

Whatever we focus on and give our attention to, we move towards and interact with. Attention is an active force that stimulates whatever it is we’re thinking about. As we form a vision as a desired experience that will make us feel a certain way, we can also realize what’s involved in creating that reality, and we can form a kind of process or strategy as a step-by-step process for producing it by connecting to it and interacting with it. All creation works by way of laws as processes that grow, generate, and produce living forms as thematic (archetypal) realities. So all forms as a reality has a growth process involved for creating it, as well as a state-of-mind as the “quality of being” necessary to exist within it in a harmonious and natural fashion as a part of it, and ultimately the creator of it.

As our vision becomes a reality for us and we can see the components involved that make up its structure, we can form the strategy as a progressive process necessary to grow, formulate, and produce it. Once this process becomes evident, we can form a series of smaller goals that need to be accomplished in order to lay the foundation necessary for it to spontaneously occur as a creation, and more importantly, maintain it as a new lifestyle and way of being. Out of these goals we organize priorities and which ones need to come first in order to produce the other ones as a form of growth process or systematic emergence and unfolding. Ideas grow, mature, and blossom. Once our process is laid out in a hierarchical format, we commit and discipline ourselves to consistently take action to achieve each goal, while cultivating an attitude of perseverance and mental fortitude that presses through fears and challenges, overcoming all that acts to prevent it, until each step is accomplished providing the basis for the next step.

As we begin executing our strategy, we’ll begin getting feedback as to the effectiveness of our methods, allowing us to make whatever adjustments we need to along the way. The initial plan as a strategy simply provides us with an organized process for beginning, and is not meant as a rigid set of rules that we adhere to even when they’re clearly not working. The implementation of any plan is always a “work in progress” that we allow to take on a life of its own as we begin manifesting it, and we modify and tweak it based on feedback, new information, or better ideas for doing the same thing.

Creating our universe

A goal is always about producing a desired outcome, not defining the process necessary to create it. We have to remain flexible and able to go with situations as they arise, because a vision is a form of thematic idea that may not come about in the exact way we imagined it, but rather by using whatever is available and of the same idea in our immediate environment, and so the elements used may appear different, though they’ll be of the same idea and create the same type of feeling as the experience of our imagined one. The imagined idea acts as a prototype or thematic template for organizing and ordering ideas of the same nature. So they may not show up the way we think they will, but we can recognize them by how they make us feel and what they seem to be about as a type of reality.

So in order to create a vision for your life as a means of willfully creating and becoming self-determined, start formulating an idea about “who you really are”, what feeling you want to acquire, and what kind of life you would be living as a result, into a detailed, sensory reality that you feel a deep sense of love and soul connection to. Make it into an actual experience internally as a form of virtual memory that will serve as a program for your subconscious mind to connect with externally while also bringing to your attention anything that pertains to it as a form of coincidence or synchronicity. Integrate this idea into all areas of your life in a congruent and harmonious fashion, forming an alignment. Notice how it feels to be in this desired situation, and concentrate heavily on that feeling so you can recognize it in any situation.

As you live out this vision internally, notice the elements involved and what type of things are a part of it and build a creative process as a strategy for producing it in the practical sense of action steps or goals. Then commit to taking consistent action on each of these goals until they are accomplished and become real. Remember your vision is more of a “theme for your life”, and remain flexible through the whole process as it may not come about in quite the way you had imagined, though it will hold true to the theme of your vision and give you the same feeling as the one you fabricated in your imagination. Recognize any fears or inhibitions that may arise around what it takes to fulfill your goals, and be willing to push through them without letting them stop you. Avoid the tendency to make excuses for things that make you uncomfortable. Tweak your plan based on feedback and discovering new information that you hadn’t anticipated in the beginning. Adapt and adjust as you go along, and always keep moving towards it with a sense of love and determination, until it becomes an actual reality as a part of your everyday life.

The Nature of Personal Illusions and the Minds Ability to Shape Reality

Our Mind is always Generating our Personal Reality . . . .

 While many people have heard of the spiritual concept of Maya, or the mind’s ability to make up false realities that it then “lives out of” as though they’re real, we tend to think that this idea involves mental illness or dysfunction of some sort, yet in fact, this is a natural function of the mind that we all do naturally anytime we’re forming interpretations of something as a way of making them “mean” something. What things “mean” forms the basis for the story we tell ourselves about it as a way of fitting it into our paradigm (it’s a product of our paradigm) in order to create a consistent experience of what we call “reality”. One of the most fundamental errors we make in the general sense of things, is we don’t realize that everyone’s not seeing the same things that we are, and we believe instead that we’re experiencing a universal reality where everyone sees what we see in a person, situation, or event, and is experiencing it the same way we are. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

The illusion begins through how we interpret what is in fact a neutral and objective outer reality that makes it “about us” in some way. We interpret everything as a way of giving it meaning. What something means is what produces the necessary theme or basis for “our story”, and is what allows us to continue telling our story as a consistent theme about everything. The meaning we give random events or other people’s behavior, from the perspective of what we’re telling ourselves about what’s happening, is how we create our personal experience of it. While we don’t have anything to do with the reality going on around us, in terms of actually manifesting or creating it, how we perceive it as an interpretation of it, is completely our personal creation of “reality” as an “experience”. We are the sole creator of our experiences, which often has nothing to do with what’s “actually” going on in a situation.

We all develop what we come to call our “personal issues” out of our primary conditioning. Our conditioning forms “life themes” as dynamic patterns that express a certain type of meaning as a story line that we start telling ourselves about what’s happening, which serves to give us a consistent experience of a vastly dynamic outer, objective reality. Through this story that we tell ourselves as a means of translating the actions and intentions of other people to mean something about us, is a form of illusion that we create and superimpose over the actual reality that transforms it into being of the same nature as we are (it’s formed by our “issue”). We are the “center of our own universe”, experience everything from within our own mind, and in our story about things, everything evolves around us. Because of this tendency, we tend to take everything personally.

Our story as a theme serves as a template of sorts, and has a self-fulfilling quality to it.  We can shape everything other people do in regards to or around us, or in relationship with us somehow, as being done intentionally “to” us. We imagine their behaviors to be intentionally directed towards us on purpose as the imaginary fulfillment of our story. Someone with the issue of “not being good enough”, for example, can interpret any number of behaviors displayed by others that they’re interacting with as being, once again, about them “not being good enough”. They twist everything in whatever way they need to in order to make it mean what they need it to mean. They can even misinterpret what is clearly complementary or praising, by questioning the motive, or somehow making it condescending, or empty flattery designed to (falsely) try and make them feel good, or make up for previous insults, and so on.

Whatever your issue is forms your primary theme as your perceptual lens and your means of forming consistent interpretations, and determines what you go into every situation expecting, looking for, waiting for, extracting and pointing out, and expounding upon. We only notice in any situation what lends itself to telling our story, and fail to notice anything that doesn’t. We completely ignore anything that contradicts our story, because we honestly can’t perceive it (in the natural sense), and we don’t know how to “tell ourselves” (live by way of) a different type of story. We don’t have a filter for it, and so we don’t recognize it for what it is. Even if somebody points it out as clearly contradicting our perception, we feel somewhat bewildered and confused by it, and will either disregard it, try and explain it away, or argue to defend our story as being right. We can’t conceive of it because it doesn’t fit into our model, and in being willing and able to consider it in its contradictory state, it would introduce doubt, and act to undermine or shatter our story. Because most are not willing to give up their story about things, because they’ve built their identity around it, they choose instead to ignore all contradictory evidence and defend their right to keep telling their story in spite of it.

We not only create our experience of life through our story, but we act on ourselves to shape ourselves by way of our story. Our “theme” evolves out of a series of repeated emotionally intense experiences that, as a child or young adult, we try to make sense out of by what we tell ourselves about them that give them meaning. Meaning creates on three levels simultaneously, the meaning we give things means something about other people and why they’re the way they are, about life and the world in general, and about “us” existing in relationship to it all. When people treat us “as if we’re not good enough” by criticizing us, talking down to us, calling us names, telling us we’re stupid, or being sarcastic and belittling, which we interpret as meaning we’re inferior and not good enough to be loved, admired, or accepted, and we develop an opinion of people and of life as being this way, and we develop an image of ourselves as being inferior, unwanted, and not lovable. This idea becomes a theme as a perceptual filter that we look through to “see”, and only see what matches it. Any neutral or borderline behavior, we simply “reinterpret” to still mean what we need it to mean in order to maintain our self-image. We can live our entire life experiencing everything out of this theme, usually without ever realizing it’s an illusion of our own making, and actually says nothing factual about other people or the way the world is, but rather simply reveals who we are and what delusion we’ve invested our sense of self into.


Because we build our self-image and identity as a person out of a story that we continuously told ourselves about things that created our experience of them, even when we briefly begin realizing it’s an illusion and not a fact, we can have trouble giving it up, because we don’t know how else to be. We don’t know how to tell a different type of story. The story we tell ourselves becomes a form of self-fulfilling prophecy, and we literally take on and accentuate the qualities and traits that we believe (or were told) “don’t make us good enough”.  Meaning, we act out those behaviors in every aspect of our life, consistently giving people that impression of us. Because we believe our own story, and developed our sense of ourselves out of our story, and became the person in our story, we form a kind of love for it as our own creation, and will argue and defend our right to keep it, assuming others “don’t understand”, which, of course, they don’t. We don’t want to give it up because it’s who we are. What we want instead, is to be able to continue acting the way we are and believing what we’re believing, perceiving the same way, yet have someone or some situation treat us as if we’re good enough, usually without ever realizing that it’s impossible, because we’ll interpret even the best of behavior to mean whatever we need It to mean, or we’ll think they’re lying to us just to try and make us feel good, and usually respond by becoming angry, hurt, or offended.

So the ability of the mind to form personal realities as a delusion is the most common and natural function of the mind, and is something we’re all doing to varying degrees all of the time. The whole goal of spiritual development is learning how to control your mind, let go of your illusions as your “false image”, and realize your true identity and position within the cosmic scheme of things. What we call the “false ego” is the storytelling ability of the mind that runs in an automatic fashion, forming illusions as a child that becomes the “themes of adulthood”, which serve to create all of our experiences as a form of self-creation and self-projection, that’s based solely on a false assumption born out of emotional trauma of some sort that sets the whole process in motion as the reality of that emotion. Emotions are experienced strongly and deeply and use our subconscious mind to express through. Our emotions run our thoughts and create illusions in place of objective reality. Because the emotions are intense and immediate and command our mind by controlling our thoughts, imagination, and perceptual interpretations, we mistake them for being real, and allow them to shape us, and continue “using us” to express through. Most people live their entire life out of a dominant emotional state and a constant form of emotional reaction. Their emotions run them and they often have trouble realizing they’re not “true”, and act only to produce false realities that are very convincing, due to their intensity and the nature of the drama they create, which is very engaging and often addictive.

balancing our dual nature

Once we can learn to see emotions for what they are, strong forms of physical stimulation with whole dramas inherent in them, and we can realize that the stories we started telling ourselves while in the midst of experiencing these emotions, as make-believe ideas that simply expressed the emotion at the time they occurred, and when the emotion passed, we kept telling ourselves that story as a way of keeping the emotion alive, by expressing out of it and giving us more of it. Emotions, which form our body chemistry and alter our state of mind by way of them, just like drugs, are addictive, and once we begin forming realities out of them as a life drama, they become habitual. They shape the patterns of our mind and form our mental perceptions, so that we’re always in the process of seeing more of that same emotion and the reality it naturally produces in everything around us. In this way we keep supplying ourselves with more of the same emotions, feeding our addiction and reinforcing our false beliefs.

If we can learn how to dissociate from our story, move out of being “in the experience” of it, and view it as an outsider watching it play out like a movie, where we’re not the main character, but simply playing one role in a larger story, and release our attachment to our “side” of the story, we can begin gaining a different perspective and see it from a different point of view. When we realize that other people’s behavior has nothing to do with us in the ultimate sense, but is simply a reflection of “who they are”, we can learn not to “take it personal” or internalize everything by going into a whole drama because of what other people do “to us” or “because of us”, and we can ask ourselves what does their behavior say about them? Not us. What’s going on in their life, or what issues do they have that’s causing them to be and do whatever it is they’re doing? If we could see another reason for what’s happening beside the one we give it that makes it “about us”, what would we see? What kind of a person do we become because of our story, and who would we be if we gave up our story? What kind of story would we tell if we were doing it on purpose? With full awareness of “who” and “how” we become by way of the story we live out of. If we could be anybody we wanted to be, who would we choose to be? And what qualities and traits would we need to attain and develop in ourselves in order to live out of a different type of story? What traits would we have to give up or act intentionally to transform (heal) in order to play a different role in our own life?

Once we take a position of reflecting on our own tendencies and realizing what and how we’re doing them, and what it is that triggers them, we can start becoming fully conscious and live our life in a deliberate manner of conscious self-creation. By gaining clarity on what our story is and when or why we began telling it, we can see it for the illusion it actually is, not because it’s “not true” or the events that formed it didn’t happen the way they did, but by realizing that our story is only one story or perspective on the same idea, out of which there are many. We can relive the memory while making a conscious choice to reinterpret it to give it different meaning, and therefore experience it in a different way, and replay it over and over in our imagination the way want it to go instead, and literally neutralize the emotional charge it has for us. Without the emotional charge, we can remain calm and centered in the same situations, and through our calm state, we can “choose” how we want to perceive it and respond as a result. As with all things in life, all psychological and emotional healing comes only through self-realization and awareness. We have to remove our focus from other people, self-reflect and realize our own tendencies. Once we do this, we can begin working on ourselves with full awareness of what we’re doing and why.
