The Pineal, the Sexual Principle, the Fall of Humanity, and the Law of Polarity and Self-Regeneration

I gained profound insights into the idea of the true function of the Pineal and 3rd eye of the subtle body, and how it relates to our sexuality by concentrating in a meditative state on a dream I had just woken up from regarding the Principle of Polarity and the significance of how it functions, not only within the material body and the lower plane of manifestation, but as a “movement” between “planes” that only comes through “blending” in mind with the consciousness of that plane. So much confusion has been bred into our ideas about our spiritual nature through a fundamental misunderstanding of the principles involved, which was then “taught” as if it were fact, leading many astray and hopelessly caught up in an even deeper illusion of which there often seems no escaping. How our “paradigm” is initially formed and established through our “formative conditioning”, becomes the “seed of potential” as a basis that we can only grow out of and use as the means of filtering ideas through it in order to comprehend them so we can build them into our outer reality in a way that makes sense. Naturally, this is due to the fact that we are actually the one creating our perception of reality with our “mind”, which, while in the lower plane of material existence, is blended with our lower, instinctual body, which is operated primarily through emotions as an unconscious, habitual state of repetition that operates exclusively out of memory of the past.

While I have studied, explored with an awe-inspired mind, investigated through practices that became skills, and seriously contemplated both the true significance and operation associated with both our pineal and sexual organs, as well as universal laws that operate them, it wasn’t until I let go of both and only concentrated on the function of polarity itself with a passive mind that a very simple idea was shown to me. I began thinking about polarity as the process or activity for moving between planes of existence as levels of consciousness that vibrate in different, yet complementary states, when suddenly an image of a menorah appeared, and as I began thinking about it I related it to the seven chakras of the subtle body, with three on one side and three on the other joined by a single central one, representing the union of the higher triad with the lower one, and suddenly it was rotated at a 90 degree angle, producing more of a “mirror image” of the higher with the lower, where the top spheres were connected to the lower ones through the same line as an arc. This seemed to symbolize how they were polar opposites of each other (operated out of the same principle), and therefore “functioned” in polarity to each other. They represented the same principle as an operation that functioned in a similar way on different levels of reality. As I began forming realizations based on this configuration, the connection between the pineal and sexual organs stood out and was highlighted, and as I continued to concentrate on it more and more realizations about their significance began forming.

I realized that the pineal performed a similar function to our sexual organs, not only in terms of it’s receptivity, but also in terms of it’s ability to generate the living reality of whatever it acts to conceive. The symbol that’s commonly used to represent the pineal as our third eye is a yoni or vagina, also represented by the Dyad or “womb of the universe”, capable of connecting with and drawing down ideas from the higher plane as a fluent communication with our Higher Self. I then thought about the similar function of sexual union, which works through attraction where we not only take in the “seed” that generates a new human being as a “combination” of two people, but more importantly, where in spirit and mind we actually “fuse” our energy field, i.e., “essence as our mind” with another and become enmeshed with their consciousness. We begin vibrating in a coherent state with them.

The same process takes place on different levels as the mind on the higher, and the physical body on the lower, which are naturally being operated by the same soul-essence. The Higher Soul doesn’t exist as a finite being on the lower plane, but as more of an energetic “tincture” where qualities as influences are introduced from the environment, and act to change the vibration as a “state” that’s in a constant state of flux and influx based on what “properties” it absorbs as new qualities, that initially creates an imbalance as a new emphasis, which then begins vibrating in harmony to form a coherent state as a unique variable of the same mixture. Only the physical, outer form of the body creates the appearance of the soul being stationary and finite. The mind however, is in a constant state of change based on what it encounters and resonates with, blends into and becomes one with in mind, that constantly alters and modifies it to form a new energetic matrix. This process is almost identical to procreation in the physical sense, and both function by way of the same principle as a process of creation.

The Blending of Complementary Opposites to Form a New Whole

This is what the principle of “polar opposites” indicates as a creative process. Two complementary aspects of the same nature combine through sympathetic resonance and synthesize to generate reality as a new whole that’s of an expanded and evolved nature. Every new combination of energy brings a new and slightly different expression and experience of reality. The entire motivation and activity of the Higher Soul is to “evolve itself” through it’s own creations. It does this by constantly forming new combinations as a form of energetic uptake and synthesis with everything around it that’s of a similar vibration (pattern), to produce new offspring that brings a slightly different type of experience of itself. The Soul is in a constant state of dynamic movement as an evolutionary flow, while the body is stable and maintains the same basic appearance and personality throughout life, because it’s merely an instrument and means through which the spirit creates itself as experiences. The soul is of the higher mind and it creates itself through mental and emotional activity of thoughts formed in the imagination as a physical reality. The physical body is a passive receptor for the “mind”, which ensouls it in order to experience it’s thoughts as an outer reality.

Many people don’t have a direct realization around this process because it’s an interaction of the subconscious, and when we blend energetically with another through sexual union, it’s experienced more as feelings and attitudes that are like seeds planted that take hold and begin gestating within us, altering our perception of our self and reality accordingly. Sexual union is the process through which we become “one” with another in mind and soul and produce offspring as a “unique combination” of qualities and traits. Due to the fact that this is an “unconscious process”, the change comes gradually over the course of time, or in the case of marriage and consistent sexual intercourse and intimacy with the same soul, the change comes quite rapidly and tends to be intoxicating (love as an emotion is a drug). When this happens, our soul as our higher mind becomes enmeshed with the physical plane, and we use our mind to cooperate in creating our “self” as a physical being. We lose touch with our spiritual nature as our Higher Self, and begin identifying almost exclusively with being our body. This idea is commonly symbolized as “purity” of the soul that hasn’t been “contaminated” by blending with inferior substances that alter its core essence. Symbolically speaking, whenever a figure is shown with decorations on it’s “outer garments”, it represents a blended outer nature, and when shown in a pure white or solid color garment, it shows it’s unmixed, and therefore “pure nature”.

The Fallen Angels and the Myth of Prometheus

This same idea is communicated through the allegory of the “fallen angels”, where, if we move outside of the Biblical depiction and into the mythology of other historical accounts of the same thing, we find two ideas being symbolically presented using different terms; one of the angels, which represent pure beings of a higher mind that resided on a higher level of consciousness and in a sovereign state with God, assigned to “watch over and aid us in our evolutionary development”, who fell from grace, so to speak, when they “bred with the daughters of man” and became beast-like themselves and imprisoned in the material realm of the unconscious mind of instinct, losing memory of themselves as divine beings and clouding their conscious ability to use their mind in determining their reality and their true station within that reality. They entered the “realm of experience” where instead of residing above the world of illusion (maya), they were consumed within it and lost touch with who and what they actually were. Because they “forgot” who they were in mind and spirit, they continued to breed and blend even more with the lower realm of unconsciousness as a part of the group mind of animal instinct.

This same idea is told as the story of Prometheus who created man by “giving him a higher mind” (stealing the fire from heaven and giving it to man). Mankind was created originally through genetic modification that designed a human-like species that was devoid of a “conscious mind”, so they would take orders and could be trained to work without complaining or requiring more than their basic needs. But due to their “sexual instincts” that couldn’t be managed through the conscious realization of laws and principles (a function of the conscious mind), and the ability to control impulses, they began having sexual intercourse with a large variety of people, and this eventually developed into having sex anyway they could, whether it be with the same sex or with animals that they tended to. This led to hybrids of humans and animals and a “spiritual essence” that became grossly contaminated with vulgarities and lower aspects of unconsciousness, that bonded them even more with their animal nature.

The Nature of the Higher Self

In order to remedy this problem, Prometheus decided to give man a higher, conscious mind through which he could “think”, reason, and rationally contemplate ideas in order to “decide” on how to create himself as a higher, moral, and intelligent being. Prometheus, as the story goes, “stole the light from heaven” and gave it to man, with the term “light” referring to the higher capacity of the mind to form realizations, learn from experience, make intelligent decisions, and willfully act in creating himself through the reality of his decisions. This way, we could act to facilitate our own growth and development in an intelligent and calculated way, and return home by dis-integrating mentally and morally from attaining our “identity” with a lower material existence, and ascend willfully to higher planes of consciousness from whence we originally came. In order to “give us” a higher mind, the god-angels had to enter into a passive state on the higher plane, so their active mind could be drawn down into the body of man as his conscious awareness and ability to willfully self-create.

This is the relationship we have with our “self” on a higher plane, which we have the ability to connect with in mind and spirit, and with whom we’re always in communication with that serves to teach, guide, and instruct us in our return home. When we engage sexually with others and the material world, we blend with it energetically and over time become mentally and emotionally “fused with it”. We share our substance while acquiring the substance of another, blending them together in a coherent state as a frequency, and form our “sense of self” out of our identification with our lower animal body, which is driven instinctively through a desire for pleasure and emotional impulses that render us unconscious in order to fulfill and satisfy them. The angel-gods “fell into darkness” (unconsciousness), because they violated, or decided to sacrifice themselves in order to bring light to humanity by bestowing us with a higher, “conscious mind”. Through active use of our conscious mind while in the lower planes of unconsciousness, we’re able to develop ourselves in an aware and deliberate manner using our higher mind to subdue and bring our lower subconscious mind under our command. We’re able to form a practical understanding of the Universal Laws of the higher mind and apply them willfully in order to create ourselves and our reality.

When we move away from the idea of sex as being a physical function and view it instead as a “principle”, we can realize that this same “function” is performed by the pineal of the third-eye, which not only acts as an antennae and tuner for vibrating and drawing in correlated energies, but also shaping the ideas drawn in into whole realities as representations in the higher faculty of the imagination, which become the basis for manifesting as a material creation. What confuses many people is that the term “self” isn’t referring to our physical body or existence, it’s our mind and spirit that’s used in creating an “image of our self”, and we create our self by whatever it is we “become one with” in essence as an idea, thought, sensation, and emotion, all of which culminate harmoniously to produce our “perception”. Out of our perception all of our behaviors and activities are formed as what initiates and calls forth the reality of our thoughts.

Love, Desire, and Union with our Higher Self

When we form a desire for our higher existence over our lower one, we shift the energy from our sexual desire to procreate on the material plane to a desire for “union with our Higher Self” (God) on a higher plane. Through a desire for union with a higher power, we render our sexual desire passive, and activate our pineal, which acts as a “receptor” for ideas (as ideals) from the higher plane. As we connect in mind with the higher spiritual plane, ideas are drawn in that “impregnate our mind” with original ideas of a higher nature and those ideas manifest “within us” as our own creations. We take in the “seed” of a whole idea in it’s potential and latent form, and as we place our attention on it and begin thinking about it, we begin shaping it in sensory terms by imagining it as a physical form. Our imagination works through the principle of synthesis where we form an idea as our offspring by adapting it to match our mental model and current set of circumstances as a means of being able to express it in a logical and congruent manner. As ideas manifest on the inner planes by being developed into representations for reality in our imagination, they become the “perceptual lens” we look through (light is reflected on the outer crystalline structure of the pineal as a transparent image) in perceiving that same idea as an outer reality.

The lower soul is always described in feminine terms and the higher in masculine terms because the lower mind “conceives the seeded idea” of the higher plane, and through a process of gestation, forms it into a new possibility and births it within the material plane as an “outer reflection” of the higher plane. Whatever we associate with in mind and spirit, we become like in nature. When we identify with and build our essence out of our material existence, we bond ourselves as a higher soul to the lower plane of the subconscious, and create ourselves out of an unconscious state. When we identify with and build our essence from the higher plane of morality, we bond our soul to that plane, and begin identifying with it. Whatever it is we use as the means of shaping our “identity” by associating with it, we become one with energetically (in essence), and “reside” eternally on that plane and level in mind and spirit.

The reason all true adepts and spiritual masters reside in a state of celibacy, is because when we’re sexually active, our lower sexual center is active rendering it higher polar opposite of the pineal passive and inactive. We can’t have both active at the same time, because they’re complementary opposites of each other and operate according to the Law of Polarity. The entire relationship between the higher and lower plane is based on polarity, and this relationship is directly reflected in the higher triad of the mind and lower triad of the body, bound together at the heart center, which is the neutral bridge between the two, and is symbolic of the subconscious aspect of the mind. Whatever we “love”, we desire, and we seek union with whatever we desire. Desire is a magnetic force. The “purification of the heart” comes by shifting our desire from union with the material world to that of the spiritual world. We can’t have both, because in pursuing one, we render the other passive and inactive. The soul as the higher mind becomes “contaminated” with lustful thoughts that begin propagating in an uncontrollable manner, and we combine our spirit with the material world through emotional impulses that are very magnetic and compelling, yet animalistic in nature. As we draw in the energies of the material world and begin building our identity out of them as our offspring, we become a product of the unconscious mind.

The Mortal and Immortal

If we move away from belief that our sexual energy is only “about” sex, and we view it as it really is, a fundamental universal principle, we can see this as building an image of ourselves as a part of the material world, whether it be through a desire for pleasure, power, status, money, success, or anything that we use as the means of experiencing ourselves, and building an image of ourselves out of our experiences. Whatever it is we relate to, we become like. The soul isn’t the body itself, the body is the engraved image of itself that the soul forms in the astral light of the imagination. Whatever we lust after and seek to become one with as a means of creating our “sense of self” out of, we simultaneously shape our identity out of, and we bond ourselves mentally with that idea, becoming dependent on it. This is what forms what we call the “false ego” as a mistaken identity with our body and the physical world that’s projected by the body, both of which are “mortal and temporary”, and dies along with the physical body. Our “immortal” aspect is the “mind itself” as the creator of the material world which exists within the higher plane of pure consciousness, and therefore doesn’t suffer a physical death because it’s not physical in nature.

At death, through the same principle of polarity and resonance, our spirit separates from our body, and through a process of disintegration, what was formed out of the lower plane as an image of ourselves, stays within that plane, and continues to populate the Astral Plane of the Earth as “thought-forms”, also referred to as the “collective unconscious”, which means the creations native to that plane. Only the aspects of our “self” created through identification with our Higher Self as a divine, universal being, ascends in mind and spirit to that plane. This is why chastity as a “principle” that indicates not blending with lower energies in mind and spirit is considered a virtue and necessary for our spiritual advancement and ultimate ascension to higher planes of consciousness.

The sexual center, like all chakras, doesn’t indicate sex or sexual activities, but the “principle” of self-regeneration which comes by “combining with forces” through a desire and love for them, and using them as the means of creating yourself through the experiences they bring. Whatever we associate with we become like in spirit. Our spirit is the creative power that creates by combining with complementary elements to form a new, functional whole. It’s not acquiring physical substance that transforms us, it’s how we associate with and build our identity out of the “experience” it brings. All creation comes through how we experience ourselves. As long as we nurture and cultivate a desire for the physical world as attachments to it that are necessary in order to “know who we are”, we cut ourselves off from our spiritual development as a universal being. As long as our sexual energy is operating on the lower arc of the material world, our pineal is atrophied on the higher arc. The only way to “activate” our pineal is by shifting our desire away from the material world and concentrating it in the spiritual world. As long as we desire sexual union, power, money, the acquisition of material excess, and so on, we allow those ideas to occupy our mind, and we “become them” in spirit, shutting the doorway to the higher planes of a virtuous and universal identity, which is our “true nature” as a higher spiritual being who creates itself fully from within itself as a sovereign and self-sustaining being.

The Right Understanding of the Subtle Body and how to Work with the Chakra System of the Etheric Double

The most common way the subtle body is represented in the West is through the chakra system, where it’s viewed as a chain of vertical centers that are divided into separate compartments as different aspects of our “self” and how those aspects are associated to different areas of our life. I came into contact with this idea after years of study and concentrated practice in Esoteric Sciences through exploring various methods being used in the “Healing Arts and Hypnotherapy community”, which were based largely on “certification programs” that were designed to provided the “credentials” necessary for practicing as a Healing Arts Practitioner. There was no educational prerequisites for these courses and they didn’t involve any form of in-depth study or testing upon completion of the course.

Most of these certification programs were often achieved in a weekend or four-day course, or through the study of the “method” itself without any background knowledge, usually taught with very little “actual practice” to see first hand what the long term effects were that it actually produced, and without any formal study of the actual principles involved. Not only were these healing practices usually not effective, outside of the placebo effect, but often served to produce more imbalances than they resolved. This was usually due to the fact that they had very little, if any, comprehensive understanding of what the subtle body as our etheric double “is”, and how it operates on a Astral plane as a bridge between the Higher Soul and the lower soul of the personality, orchestrated through the harmonious interaction between the instinctual and intellectual spheres of the higher mind.

The Hierarchical Structure of the Spiritual Planes

What we refer to as the “spiritual world” (energetic and invisible) exists as a hierarchical structure of seven planes or levels of consciousness where ten spheres or principles operate in a rhythmic movement of descending down the planes, and then ascending back up the planes to complete a cycle of manifestation as an incarnation. The entire structure of seven vertical levels operate on three columns or pillars within each level, with the left column representing the negative aspect, the right column the positive aspect, and the central pillar that of equilibrium between the two. The entire structure is formed out of Triads where polar opposites as two spheres function as an interaction on a single level, and are brought into equilibrium on the central pillar as the “functioning aspect”, forming a Triad. The Triad represents the fundamental principle of the Mind as being threefold in nature, where three aspects function as a single unit or unified whole.

Movement between upper and lower planes, as well as the interaction of complementary aspects (positive and negative) on the same plane occur through the “Law of Polarity” (also a fundamental universal principle) as active and passive components of the same thing. This is the activity of what’s referred to as the Monad or Mind as the “three in One Law” of the Triad (Trinity), which ultimately manifests as a “fourth aspect” within the lower planes of physical reality as a subtle-energetic body, which provides the “blueprint” (culmination of all aspects) for organizing, vitalizing, and generating the physical body as a mirror (polar) image. These same principles of the Dyad (polar opposites) and Triad (three aspects of the same thing) operate consistently on every level of the unmanifest and manifest world (universal) as not only it’s “structure”, but also how it functions as a unified whole.

The hierarchical structure of the spiritual planes is represented in detail in the Kabbalah as the “Tree of Life” and is “reflected” as a mirror image in the lower physical body as the “spiritual centers” of the subtle body, represented by the chakra system. The subtle body is constructed of “essence” (vitalized matter) that’s finely differentiated yet still in a unified state, and is “not” the true nature of the Soul itself ,which always exists in unity. Due to the fact that it serves as a “spatial blueprint” (subconscious) for the material body as it’s essence, and the reality that’s projected “through” the body (as it’s life plan), it’s energetically bonded to it, and remains in the lower regions of the Astral Plane as an “astral shell” (phantom) when the body dies, and disintegrates over time along with the body. The etheric-body “is” the subconscious mind and is programmed from conception with the entire life of the soul in the lower realm as it’s personality, character, predisposition, and karmic plan, and is the “medium” through which communication takes place between the higher and lower Self.

Coherence as a Unified Whole

What’s represented as separate centers within the body, actually exist in a unified and coherent state within the subtle body, where each center operates equally throughout every aspect of the subtle body as an influence. Just as the brain and the nervous system which extends from it are structured along the spinal cord and function as a “single unit” to operate every aspect of the body, the subtle organs serve to operate the endocrine system, of which the largest complex of “master” glands exist within the brain, and serves to keep the body in a coherent state with the mind, which uses the brain as an instrument for creating. Through coherence, the brain and nerves of the subtle body operate as “currents”, and ramify from the physical brain spreading throughout the entire system. They move as inner currents in relation to the complementary centers and organs of the outer (physical) body. The “inner state” acts as the blueprint (organized information) for constructing, consistently regenerating, and operating the “outer body” as it’s mirror image or polar opposite. Again, the inner and outer operate in harmony with each other as polar opposites that work together to produce a unified whole as a single unit. Our perception of “separation” takes place from “within” a greater unified reality, as the means necessary to “experience” ourselves as others and as a fundamental part of Nature.

This same threefold structure as complementary principles are represented by the three channels of energy within the subtle body referred to as the Ida Nadi, associated with the moon (negative-feminine), and operates the parasympathetic nervous system, regulating emotions, feelings, and memories; and the Pingala Nadi, associated with the sun (positive-masculine), governing the planning and activities of the rational intellect; and the central and main channel of Sushumna, which runs from the base of the spine to the top of the head and extending out of the top of the head into the sphere of the Higher Mind as a connection to our Higher Self. This energy flows as a current when both aspects of the mind are functioning in balance. Energy moves up and down these channels, causing certain forces to “act on” the polar aspects of the material body in a corresponding manner in order to keep it in a coherent state with the higher mind. The three channels are what magnetic fluids circulate through and their balance is necessary for a sane state of mind. This subtle fluid is what’s referred to as “akasha” which is the subtle form of matter that’s imprinted with memory. The memory of the body is what acts as the “organizing principle” for both the inner and outer reality. The astral centers of the subtle body are similar to “nerves”, in which the central one passes out of the top of the head and forms a connection with the luminous principle of the Higher Soul, represented by a sphere of beautiful white light positioned directly above the head.

Coherent (white) light enters the top of the head through the crown and is refracted to form seven plexuses (colors of the spectrum), as the seven hidden aspects that exist within the One Ray. The central column acts in a similar way to a battery, where the crown chakra functions as the positive pole and the root chakra functions as the negative pole. Energy from the higher plane is “drawn in” and circulates down through the system by “grounding” it to the Earth’s energy. We operate the energy system of the body through the Law of Polarity where the “active principle” is drawn in to it’s complementary “passive principle”. The only way to effectively work with this is by withdrawing all consciousness from the body, and placing it in in the sphere of your higher self, and concentrating on it while “identifying” (associating) with it. This renders the body “passive” so it can act to conceive the “active” consciousness of the Higher Self, where it’s metabolized through the spiritual centers of the subtle body which function as “principles” of a “unified whole”. This forms a “circuit” through which consciousness flows as an alternating current, in much the same way electricity can only be directed and utilized by grounding it to the Earth forming a pathway for it to flow.

Spiritual Principles that Operate as a Whole

Each center represents a “principle” as a characteristic and function of the whole, and can’t be utilized in a meaningful way by handling them as if they’re separate centers. Energy only flows in an unimpeded manner through a closed circuit. You don’t attempt to “clear a chakra” by working with the chakra itself as a single unit, but by properly grounding energy by making the body a “passive receptor” as a “circuit”, forming a coherent state. As long as any part of the body is being worked with through a process of visualization while concentrating on it, makes it “active” and serves to block the flow of energy which comes in through a connection to a higher plane. In order to “transform” any part of what has already manifest as a material reality, we have to work through the “higher plane” which is what’s “causing and orchestrating it”. We can’t work with a manifestation from within the manifest plane, which is merely an “effect”, by trying to manipulate it in some way. We have to work at the higher level of the mind which is “causal” in nature and is what serves to manifest ideas on the lower plane as a “whole coherent reality”.

The seven principles of the subtle body is how an idea is brought down the hierarchical planes of the spiritual world and developed through a process of adaptation and modification to manifest in a specialized way as a natural part of both our inner and outer reality. Just as the “Tree of Life” as seven levels comprised of Triads are reflected down into the lower plane of the body, the chakra system is actually comprised of a higher Triad (conscious mind) that’s reflected down into the lower plane of the body to produce a lower Triad (subconscious mind) as it’s polar opposite, combined and mediated through the middle center of the heart. The higher Triad forms the lower as it’s shadow or mirror image on a lower plane. The lower three chakras are directed and utilized as a “response” to the higher triad of the conscious mind, and the higher triad is what shapes and develops an idea in the imagination that’s acts to elicit a corresponding response in the lower triad, with the heart acting as the mediator between them.

The lower quaternary (four chakras) doesn’t possess any ability to create on it’s own, and represents the subconscious, which has to be “given a pattern” as a well-developed sensory idea that mimics a memory, which it then combines with and vitalizes with life-force as activity, causing it to manifest as an outer experience of the same kind. The lower self doesn’t possess the mental ability to shape an idea in a new and unique way, and when left to operate without guidance from the higher conscious mind, it functions to manifest based solely on memory that has already been established as conditioning and produces thought processes that run in an automatic and habitual manner. Due to this, when we don’t utilize our will in directing and shaping our own thoughts and what it is we focus on consistently, we simply draw on the akasha of our etheric-body as our storehouse of memory, and recreate the same patterns of the past over and over by replaying their memories as habitual “thought-forms”.

This system is not operated from “within” the system itself as individual centers, but as the circuit (axis mundi) that connects the upper plane of the conscious mind with the lower plane of manifestation which allows a “current” to flow unimpeded. There’s no such thing as being “blocked” or having “congestion” in only one chakra, because they all operate in correspondence to each other to produce a coherent reality. When we concentrate on the individual centers themselves, we actually cause an imbalance within the system, because concentration is a principle in itself that penetrates, expands, and increases whatever quality or idea is being developed in the mind through concentrating on it. By concentrating on the idea of a “problem”, we’re actually acting to “produce” the problem by instructing the body to manifest it.

The Principle of Concentration and Meditation

Concentration and meditation “is” a principle of the mind through which we enter into a passive state while focused on an idea, and enter into the “current” of that idea on a higher plane and “draw in” knowledge associated with the idea as a natural consequence. As we concentrate on an idea we “enter into” the idea as a “stream of consciousness” or mental flow. This is how we attain knowledge without “learning it” through study or being taught by an outside entity. While you may be able to gain insight into the emotional nature of an existing manifestation by focusing on the symbol associated with the solar plexus and meditating on it, at the same time you’re streaming vital energy into the insights gained, amplifying and multiplying them, because your not working at the level of “cause” in terms of identifying what idea you’re actively expressing that the emotions are being invoked by as a natural response. The body of the subconscious always responds to the thoughts being envisioned in the imagination of the higher mind, where it forms corresponding feelings, emotions, motivation, and activities that serve to “manifest” it as an experience. The upper and lower Triads work together to produce a unified reality through a “cause and effect” relationship.

The only purpose of the lower four centers is to energize the idea being presented to it as a “representation” built in the imagination through concentration that they form a natural response to. To change the response you have to change the representation producing it. As the subconscious animates the imagined idea by blending with it (sympathetic induction) and motivating the activities it takes on (emotion as an arousing force), and therefore determining how it expresses, it simultaneously connects with the energies in the outer world associated with that same idea as a pattern, and through electromagnetic impulses (resonance) organizes them to form our “perception” of an equivalent outer reality. Just as the subtle body as the subconscious mind serves to spatially organize and animate the physical body with specific characteristics and activities, it also organizes the outer reality in the same way, because they’re not separate things. The inner produces the blueprint for constructing the outer as an expression of it, and together they’re formed into an experience, which is then translated back into the same type of memory that initiated it, where it’s “built up” as the means of “evolving the whole” by way of the part (holographic principle).

The Law of Polarity and the Relationship of Complementary Opposites

Energy as consciousness operates systematically through complementary (opposing) spheres on the same level, and as correlated movement between upper and lower planes of a hierarchical structure through the Law of Polarity. The passive always serves as a receptor for the active. What’s active on the higher plane is only “drawn down” into the lower plane by making it’s complementary aspect a passive receptor for it. The subtle body itself is the culminated energies of the higher planes formed into a cohesive whole where it serves as the energetic blueprint for organizing our perception of the entire lower plane of manifestation, which comes “through” the energy center of the mind while being housed by the body. The etheric-double itself never changes and remains consistent throughout our lifetime. This principle of the mind is represented by the Monad, where the center expands outward through an electromagnetic pulsation to produce both an inner and outer reality of a corresponding nature. The same organized field of information as a “metaphorical pattern” expresses equally on different “scales” of manifestation as a whole.

In practical terms we can realize this organizing principle of the mind as “perception” which operates through a harmonious correlation of “filters” that serve to separate and order the information available in the whole of reality through polarity by “activating” and bringing forth some qualities and aspects, while simultaneously deactivating and subduing other aspects, causing them to recede into the background in a latent state, and re-configuring the “selected” aspects into a “new whole” that’s of the same nature and structure (patterning) as the mind producing it, bridging the inner with the outer as a unification or continuation of each other. The outer is shaped by the inner, it’s only a question of whether or not we’re aware of it, or if we’re doing it while in a primarily unconscious state where we’re detached from our own creation, and therefore unaware of how it is we’re creating it.

On the material plane of manifestation the subconscious and conscious, as the inner and outer, are polar opposites and therefore complementary aspects of the same thing, and act “on each other” to stimulate each other as a kind of “feedback loop”. This function is represented by the infinity symbol (8) as a self-perpetuating and self-sustaining system of self-creation. The idea developed on the inward planes expands and projects outward, exciting only correlated aspects within the outer light of the group mind, ordering and organizing them into a corresponding construct as a personal creation of the individual mind, then, once it reaches the end of our visual perception, switches polarity and returns back into the center from whence it came, where it’s translated into an “experience” and formed into a memory (representation). A memory is formed out of the “experience” created based on the feelings and emotions that came as a response to an event, and the meaning it held for us as a result, and not as a historical account of the event itself, as many believe. A memory is created as a “representation” of an event, which serves as a kind of “metaphor” that forms a perceptual lens for creating more of the same type of experiences that are easily translated into the same type of memory, where they’re built up over time, strengthening and continuously developing them as an evolutionary process.

This is easy to understand when you self-reflect on what you perceive as “memories of the past” where you acquired the same type of “feelings about yourself” through numerous experiences of a similar kind, which, based on how you interpreted them to make them mean something, ultimately served to form the “story” you began telling yourself as the means of experiencing “yourself”. An event of an emotionally intense nature was translated into a memory based on the type of feeling it gave you, as a “representation” in your imagination that didn’t represent the event itself as an objective occurrence, but as a metaphorical representation of the “meaning” you gave it that set the basis for a “theme” as a perceptual lens used to interpret all events of the same kind to make them mean the same thing, and as a result, built up and evolved the representation over time through an accumulative process of creation. You took and initial representation and used it to both “perceive and conceive”, first projecting it and then absorbing it, producing more of the same type of experiences that you built into the memory itself as a means of evolving it through different stages and areas of your life as what became a central theme as your life story.

The Holographic Principle

This accumulated memory as a representation constructed on the inner planes is transformed and evolved by forming unique variations of the same idea produced through different situations and circumstances that somewhat altered the meaning it has through new combinations that served to grow it through the acquisition of new qualities that served to modify the “parent pattern” being used. This idea is represented in the “holographic principle” and the concept of “fractal patterns”, as well as the “Golden Mean”, Particle-Wave Duality, and Entanglement, all of which operate to form new variations that still hold true to the central theme through the Law of Polarity. We alter vibration, which contains a living pattern as an idea by working with complementary aspects as “functions” of a greater whole. The subtle body exists as the function of the polar aspects of the instinctual-emotional and the intellectual-rational aspects of the same higher mind. These two complementary aspects, commonly referred to as the subconscious and self-conscious aspects of our physical being work in harmony to produce the subtle body as their offspring which operates as a “functioning whole”. When we take an attitude of working directly on the etheric-body itself through manipulation of the subtle organs and energy centers themselves by separating them into categories of a coherent state, our efforts are futile at best, and harmful at worse.

The body itself doesn’t have the ability to heal or transform itself from within the subconscious mind, but acts only as a vessel and vehicle of the higher conscious mind of the Soul which operates “through it” as a coherent state of consciousness. The only way to change the state of the body, is to ground the lower chakra as the “negative pole”, while opening the crown chakra to connect with the upper plane as the “positive pole”, in order to act as a receiver for the ideas of the Higher Self. We do this by withdrawing all of our conscious awareness from the body and spiritual organs of the subtle body, and concentrating all of our attention on the sphere of our Higher Self, which exists directly “above” our head in the immediate space around us. Our Higher Self is represented by a sphere or globe of beautiful white light (coherent state as whole) that only fragments into the colors of the spectrum when it enters into the crystalline structure of the third-eye and liquid cells of the body, revealing it’s inner, hidden aspects. The Higher Self exists in a coherent state as a harmonious whole that’s reflected in the lower plane of the physical body as aspects that function as a cohesive part of a dynamic whole. The subtle body is a hologram as a “medium” through which the energy of higher consciousness expresses as a “whole” on the physical plane of manifestation. Our tendency towards duality and separation of what exists in a unified state, is a fundamental error in our thinking, and everything that comes out of it expresses that same error.

The subtle body can only be worked with using the intellect to guide and direct the instinctual by giving it a “pattern”” as a representation defined and shaped with sensory detail that acts to “alter it’s state” as a whole. It’s the higher mind that orders and organizes the four Elements of the material plane into a coherent state. This is represented by realizing the crown and root are positive and negative poles of a continuous circuit, and the five chakras in between are represented by the Pentagrammaton, where the top, fifth chakra represents the ether as the 3rd-eye, which conceives ideas as representations from the Higher Self and uses them as a blueprint for ordering and organizing the 4 Elements (lower 4 chakras) of the physical body into a functioning matrix that expresses the idea as an inner and outer reality. The 5th principle resides above and in the center of the lower 4, symbolized by the star of the Pentagram, encircled by the mind of the Monad.

Putting it all Together

The etheric-body is operated through the etheric principle of the Higher Mind, where all ideas as representations (archetypes) are conceived in the receptive organ of the 3rd eye, and reflected on the outer lens, where it’s “looked through” and perceived in its whole form as a possible reality (imagined), and forms the basis for all our thoughts as inner dialogue (throat chakra), vitalized with feeling sensations (heart) that invoke correlated emotions (solar plexus), which forms the motivational force (sexual center) that animates them with life as activities and actions (grounded in reality), causing them to manifest as an outer reality, which is then used to create an experience of it. Thought is made manifest “through” the body by completing the circuit through which the current of higher consciousness flows abundantly as an alternating current. This circuit is made by making the body a passive receptor of the Higher Self.

When we concentrate on the individual centers themselves we “activate them” and cut off flow as a result. Whatever we concentrate on we make active and expressive. By activating the subtle centers, we not only cut off the flow of consciousness from our Higher Self, we expand and grow the energy itself causing an imbalance as an exaggeration and amplification of that energy. Concentration causes energy to proliferate. The body needs to be made passive as a circuit for the active forces of the mind to flow into and harmonize as a “whole creation” born out of a coherent state. We don’t work on the manifestation as an “effect” from “within” the manifestation itself that we imagine to be neatly divided up into separate compartments, but by operating on the higher plane of pure mind that’s acting as the “cause”. We don’t clear energy from each center by visualizing it as expanding and contracting, because they don’t exist as “separate and individual centers”. The symbols used to represent them are not the centers themselves but “principles” that perform different functions of a greater whole.

We draw down higher consciousness through our subtle body which serves to operate our physical body through a working understanding of the primary Law of Polarity and Correspondences. Vibration is formed as a correspondence of ideas formed in the mind as visual thoughts. Vibration is movement between two opposite poles or spheres that generate “light” as a phantom image or hologram of the idea that set it in motion. Vibration forms a rhythm that repeats as cycles on different scales through the reciprocating relationship of “cause and effect”. Thought formed on the inner plane through concentration while in a meditative state sets vibration in motion and contains a whole idea which manifests (serves as the cause) outside of us as an outer reality, and then switches polarity on the same plane and becomes the “cause” for stimulating a corresponding inner effect (output and uptake), and repeats as a rhythmic pulsation that’s self-perpetuating and self-sustaining.

This same process of polarity operates between upper and lower planes, and the subtle body as the unification of instinct and intellect forms an energetic medium through which higher consciousness flows into the lower planes as “thoughts made flesh”. The only meaningful way to work with the subtle body itself to facilitate this natural flow, is by grounding it in a passive state while opening the crown chakra to the upper plane and concentrating your full attention into the sphere of your higher consciousness, which resides above and outside of the body itself (enveloping it), and thereby drawing down the energy and grounding it in the the material world as a whole reality that brings a certain type of experience.

The Right Understanding of the Kundalini – The Path to Enlightenment or Insanity

What’s referred to as the “kundalini” energy of the body, often symbolized as being dormant until “awakened”, is a primal electric force that gives life to all of Nature. It’s the power that generates an inner light in those who meditate and concentrate on their spiritual and moral development. This natural force is the “cosmic electricity” that fills and animates form, commonly referred to as the “Fohat” or Fohatic Energy in Esoteric Sciences. It’s the fiery-electrical force which underlies everything visible and invisible, also referred to as “World’s Mother”, or “Mother of the World”, symbolized as the Vesica Pisces (Dyad) or “the Womb of the Universe” in Sacred Geometry, through which all life emerges as a birthing process. It’s the Universal Life Principle that works to animate the Universal Logos and brings life to all material forms.

The Kundalini is a power that moves in a circular, spiraling motion, symbolized by a “serpent”, which is often shown wrapped around and egg (thought in it’s potential state). This Universal Life Principle is a single force that’s comprised of two polar forces of attraction and repulsion, and manifests as electricity and magnetism, which are two aspects that perform opposing functions of the same force, and is what generates movement as expansion and contraction. What we call “electromagnetism” is a manifestation of this power, much like the aura of the body is but an emanation of the subtle body, yet is not the subtle body itself. While it’s usually thought of as an “electric force”, it’s actually electro-magnetic in nature, and as it expands, it simultaneously magnetizes with an attractive force. It resides in a dormant state until it’s “stimulated” and “rises” in an active state to “fill and vitalize” an astral form (imaginary thought) of some kind shaped in the higher faculties of the mind.

Kundalini is the active principle of the Universal Logos, and is what fills and brings life to universal archetypes that manifest throughout Nature, forming the various kingdoms and the species of conscious beings that populate them. In the mind of man this force is what gives life to our thoughts. It’s the Universal Life Power, symbolized by the element of Fire as the electrical force that enters into and animates ideas, causing them to expand and manifest as a three-dimensional reality. This power is natural to man, who is bestowed with the higher capacities of thought in creating reality, and is NOT worked with through calculated methods or as mechanical processes. There’s really no such thing as engaging in a supposed process of attempting to “raise the kundalini power” from the lower self of the body to the higher centers of the mind through a meditative process of “visualization”. This idea is born out of a misunderstanding of the Universal Principles involved and an incorrect conception of how the spiritual centers (chakras) of the subtle body function as a cohesive whole. Most attempts to do this are formed for selfish reasons out of the desire to somehow attain special psychic abilities, achieve elevated levels of consciousness through a form of shortcut, or to experience inner sensations of bliss, which are the promises used to lure people in. All true spiritual development only comes by way of consistent effort put forth in learning how to develop skill in mastering our own mind-body system.

This is the reason why “kundalini” is hardly ever mentioned in most ancient spiritual doctrines or texts on occult sciences, outside of the modern “New Age” movement. Like all great truths that are misunderstood by those who lack true knowledge which is only attained through years of devotional study of higher spiritual principles, practices are developed and promoted that can be outright dangerous in the development of the soul, and usually only lead to spiritual degradation, and oft times even various forms of mental illness. I’m sure that most who have taken the time to thoroughly investigate the idea of “raising the kundalini” from the sacral chakra to the crown or third-eye, have also been warned or heard stories of people who experience intense anxiety, hard to control emotional outpourings, disturbing hallucinations, and an almost overwhelming intensity of passions, emotions, and sexual arousal. This is due to the fact that they are working by completely artificial means to raise the energy of the lower, animal instincts through the lower chakras where it culminates in the higher mind and fuels our thoughts and imagination. As animal instincts begin animating and controlling our thoughts with an addictive intensity, they simultaneously govern our behavior through emotional impulses that we find overwhelming and difficult to retain, and ultimately result in psychotic behaviors that are destructive in nature.

Understanding and Working by Way of Universal Principles

If we contemplate this idea through the spiritual principles at work in the relationship formed between the mind and body as our higher and lower nature, we can gain great insights into how this process actually works. This idea, like so many others that result from a fairly significant misunderstanding of the Universal Principles involved, came about largely through the “New Age Movement” which attempted to infiltrate Eastern religions with Western ones as a means of forming a new one that encompassed them both into a single idea, and through the Principles of Yoga being introduced into western society which was primarily conditioned through various forms of Christianity, which of course are based on entirely different paradigms and models of behavior. They tried to interpret occult philosophy through a profane model born out of ignorance of Universal concepts, and the results were often disastrous, if not outright dangerous.

I came into true knowledge around this idea through an adverse intuitive reaction I formed when studying the psychological process involved, and through contemplating the controversy that was generated around the symbol of the “caduceus” as being “mistakenly” used to represent healing and medicine, as opposed to the single serpent staff of Asclepius, along with the realization that the “original” images of the caduceus was always shown as “3” (thrice great) revolutions around the rod that began (with loose ends) in the fourth chakra and ended at the crown, represented by the winged sphere of the higher intellect and rational mind. The modern day depictions of the caduceus have been redesigned to reflect the belief formed by those who only possess an elementary understanding of the chakra system and how it functions. Many don’t realize that in symbolic representations used as a concept for understanding universal principles numbers have a significant meaning. Modern depictions have a tendency to show the dual serpents passing through all 7 of the chakras, starting at the root, which significantly changes it’s meaning.

While the staff of Asclepius may be seen as representing medicine of a physical nature, and actually isn’t related to the chakras at all, the caduceus represents “transformation” of the Soul by subduing our lower nature and bringing it under the full command of our higher nature, and the spiritual regeneration that results from it. Mercury, as I’m sure many realize, is the archetypal symbol of the higher mind of intellect (rational thought) and will (imagination), referred to as “universal wisdom” that works through deep forms of concentration, and is the aspect of the mind used to “program” the subconscious with “visual thoughts” as seeded suggestions, which it then produces (gestates and births) as a corresponding outer reality that allows us to “experience” our thoughts, and then translate them into “memories”, which are “internal representations” of a metaphorical nature that are used by the subconscious to produce more experiences of a similar kind. My intuition on this idea was then verified and confirmed when I took up a thorough study of the principles taught in the Bhagavad Gita, the Qabalah Tree of Life, and Patanjali (Raja) Yoga (which is the only form of ancient yoga that forms a correspondence with all the other scientific systems of Universal Laws).

While many have been taught that there’s only one kundalini, which lies dormant in the root chakra, associated with the sexual organs of the body, there is in fact two kundalini energy centers within the subtle body, with the other having it’s residence in the “heart center”. As human beings we are essentially “dual in nature” while in the lower planes of physical reality, and have within us both a higher, divine nature, and a lower, instinctual nature that’s driven almost exclusively by passions and the emotions that naturally rise out of them. When we allow passions and intense emotions to run our thoughts, delusions result that we mistake for truth, because they appear to us as a coherent reality. The 7 primary spiritual centers of the body (chakras) are represented by the 7 colors of the light spectrum (3 primary and 4 complementary) which vibrate at different frequencies (wavelengths) and represent different modes of consciousness that perform different functions of the greater whole, represented as an octave (8).

The “mind” is represented on the higher planes from which it originates as Triads, which are symbolized as triangles. A Triad is formed by two complementary forces (2 lower points that form a straight line as the base) which are combined through synthesis to produce an “exalted state” as a functional third, represented by the central point that resides at an equal distance above them. When this same principle is represented as a vertical movement between higher and lower planes, it’s symbolized as three interlaced spheres, where the upper sphere is is brought into near proximity with the lower sphere through the medium of the middle sphere which acts to combine and bring them into balance through a process of equilibrium. All physical manifestation results from combining two complementary (polar) aspects to form a working third as it’s offspring. This is a fundamental principle referred to as the “Three in One Law”, also known as the Trinity, which contains all other laws in their “potential state”, each of which naturally propagate out of it as it’s offspring through a natural growth process. This process of creation born out of thoughts shaped into images in the imagination operates on every level of consciousness to form the substrata as an energetic matrix out of which all “physical reality” naturally arises as an emanation or reflection. The physical body is formed by the blueprint of the etheric-double (subtle body), which is comprised of both the instinctual and intellectual aspects of the mind, commonly referred to in psychology as the subconscious.

The Seven Main Spiritual Centers of the Subtle Body

One of the ways we can gain new insights into an existing idea is by changing the model we’re using to conceptualize it. The seven spiritual centers of the subtle body can be organized in a couple of different ways as the means of understanding the principles involved and how they work as a dynamic relationship. We can view the top 3 (crown, third-eye, and throat) as a triad, and the lower four as a Quaternary or square, which when the triad is placed on top of the square, it forms a “house,” representing the temple or dwelling place of the spirit; or we can see them as a higher triad and a lower triad (root, sexual, emotions) joined at the heart center, which serves to harmonize them. This merging of the higher and lower triads is represented symbolically by the “Merkabah” (the light body we use to ascend to higher dimensions), and by the Hexad, formed in the shape of a star (Star of David), which represent the merging and blending of the higher with the lower as the harmonious marriage of the conscious with the subconscious, represented in the Tarot by the “Lovers” (6), as the alchemical marriage of the masculine and feminine aspects to form a “whole”, orchestrated and overseen by the “Holy Guardian Angel”, which represents our Higher Self or Soul.

When we work to create by way of Law, everything in the physical world comes in a completely natural way. We don’t have to try and force anything or engage in some type of mechanical process or strategic method for commanding and directing natural forces, but instead “create the conditions” in which a desired manifestation naturally occurs. All manifestation is a result of how we use our mind and imagination, what ideas we embody and become one with in spirit, and what “mental state” we naturally cultivate as a result. Our mental state at any given moment is what works to naturally direct and regulate the energy of our body. When we try to “command” a force of Nature through a visualization process that performs an operation that’s not occurring naturally of its own volition, we work “against law”, which usually simply doesn’t work, or if it does, it produces unexpected, and often destructive results.

When we try to make something happen that’s not occurring naturally as a result of our mental state, we engage in a form of “black magic” which works by drawing up the energy of our lower instinctual nature and merging it with the higher centers of our mind as its “motivating force”. It’s not the images or what’s being visualized that’s the “creative factor” in manifesting material effects, they simply serve as the “vehicle” through which the “motivating force” works. Creation doesn’t come necessarily as the outer appearance something takes on, because the manifestation itself is simply the means through which our soul acquires a “feeling”. What we act to create in any situation is the expression of what’s “motivating our actions”, and not the actions themselves, which merely produce an equivalent effect as the reality of our motives. So before you engage in any form of process or attempt to create in a direct manner, it would be wise to stop and self-reflect on what it is that’s motivating your decision to do so. Always become clear on what your intentions are going into any situation or before engaging in a creative process of some kind. Selfish desires for personal gain never result in anything valuable or meaningful, and ultimately cause extensive set-backs in the evolution of our Higher Soul.

Our lower nature is what contains the effects of our conditioning in terms of “issues and complexes” repressed before being resolved through reasoning, our sexual energy which arouses and excites, and our emotions and passions, all of which are memories stored in the body due to the fact that they haven’t been balanced and resolved using the rational aspect of our higher mind. When this energy is combined with our higher capacities of thought, discretion, and imagination, which “is” our “will” in creating, we can become overwhelmed with the fantasies of our emotions, causing hallucinations that are commonly associated with schizophrenia and hysteria. When you hear of people “going mad” and becoming anxiety ridden due to this process, it’s true, and this is why. It causes the lower, instinctual nature of emotions to merge into our rational intellect, where they begin running our thoughts and polluting it with anxiety stricken illusions formed out of the unresolved issues of our formative conditioning.

As a spiritual psychologist I have dealt with many who have undergone this process with unfortunate success, and it transformed their consciousness in ways that ultimately destroyed their life. Others, failing to be able to actually do it, formed a fantasy around having done it, and began imaging themselves as enlightened spiritual beings who resided in a constant state of bliss as a form of low grade sexual arousal that lent their mind to fantasies of a similar nature. The unfortunate thing that many don’t realize before they began experimenting with many magical practices, is that once a “door is opened”, and the Elements are allowed in with free reign over our mind, it may be difficult, if not impossible to close it. Once we invite the elementals of our lower nature to set up house within the higher levels of our intellect, they become a natural part of our thoughts and aspirations, often leading to insatiable sexual appetites, self-grandization, lust for power and pleasure, uncontrollable fantasies that are delusional, excessive greed and selfishness, highly intensified and unruly emotions, and dark or perverted thoughts that lead us into the hellish lower rungs of society.

Our Two Selves and the Nature of the Heart Kundalini

Once we understand the Universal Principles we can realize that just as we have two-selves, which are distinctly different from each other in terms of their essential nature and how they function together in the natural sense, we can equally realize that we actually have two centers of Kundalini energy within the body, the second of which resides in the inner chamber of our heart. While many perceive the heart as being a muscle that pumps blood, it’s actually a generator for electromagnetic energy, and produces the largest electromagnetic field of any organ within the body, including the brain, which produces the second largest. The heart represents “feelings” as sensations, and “love” as the principle that connects us in spirit with what we love. The desire born out of love, serves to draw together and harmoniously merge polar opposites (two halves) to form a coherent whole. It’s the mediator between the upper and lower, and the inner and outer. When we experience a love for something, we form a desire for it, and desire is a gravitational force that brings us together with what we love. Whatever we love we naturally seek union with. Love and desire are a gravitational force that works to unite spirit and matter in a harmonious state of matrimony as a functional third, or fully conscious being.

The Life-force in the heart center is naturally aroused and drawn up through concentrative study of Spiritual Principles that invoke a magical feeling of excitement, wonder, and awe. When we form an internal representation (thought-forms) of spiritual ideas in a way that naturally elicits feelings of reverence, admiration, adoration, respect, honor, and benevolence for the miraculous nature of life and creation, we awaken the heart by “falling in love” with them. As we feel a deep love in response to our own thoughts, we draw up the heart’s energy, merging it with our thoughts as the representations molded in our imagination, filling them with life by electrifying them with a dynamic power that awakens and vitalizes the other spiritual centers located within the brain (which had been semi-dormant), bringing them into full function. As we energize our third-eye with the dynamic power love which “connects us” to those same “ideals” in the greater field of consciousness, we begin cultivating the power of spiritual clairvoyance. On the higher planes of pure consciousness all “ideas” exist in their perfect and “ideal state” (archetypes), and we only connect to the higher realms by creating correlating thought-forms as “representations” that are powered by natural feelings of reverence for our own creations. Higher Truth can only be known “through” beauty. Once we vitalize our higher spiritual centers through beautiful thoughts that naturally invoke a feeling of love and euphoria in response to them, they act to subdue and bring the lower centers of our body under the control of the higher mind.

Raising the Heart Kundalini

The true process of “raising our kundalini” is not achieved through a mechanical-visualization process, but through meditating on an idea in a single-minded fashion as concentration. When we concentrate on an idea, we penetrate the outer appearance and connect with the inner, hidden nature (soul) of the idea, and it begins unfolding and expanding in our imagination forming a sensational reality, where we’re no longer on the outside looking in, but inside as “one with it”, where we gain true “knowledge of it”. We enter into a magnetic current as a flow of correlated ideas expanded to form a whole reality, and lose all sense of ourselves as being outside and separate from it. We create a sense of our self “through it” and begin “identifying” with it. When we “experience ourself as a whole reality” (instead of just a body) we connect with and enter into our true identity as a Higher Soul. As we concentrate on and fill our mind with spiritual ideals (archetypes) formed as representations in our imagination, we feel a deep love for them, and shape our identity around and out of them as a result.

Once we begin using our intellect as our rational, discriminating, and willful mind, instead of our emotions, to operate our imagination, and we begin skillfully converting profane “ideas” into spiritual “ideals” that naturally give rise to feelings of love and devotion, we’re able to bring our lower nature (body consciousness) under the direction of our spiritual soul. We use the higher powers inherent in spiritual principles and our ability to reason and make intelligent decisions regarding how we “create ourselves” based on what we blend and merge with in mind and spirit, and faithfully employ our will in directing the instinctual passions of our lower nature. If we unknowingly contaminate our higher mind with the vulgarities of our conditioned issues and unresolved complexes and the impulses they produce that prompt unconscious and destructive behaviors, then we use the creative power of thought and imagination (will) to create the reality of our animal instincts, and we delude and degrade our Higher Soul as a result.

Summary

When we begin the process of creating by first connecting with higher spiritual ideals through concentrative studies where we build “internal representations” that invoke natural feelings of love and admiration, we work “through” law and use our mind to facilitate natural processes that come in an effortless and automatic way. We don’t contaminate our mind and imagination with lower energies that act to run our thought processes and cause us to engage unconsciously in instinctual behaviors driven by erratic emotions. Whatever it is we “blend with” in mind and construct with sensation, we become “like” in nature. The whole purpose of the soul is to use the higher powers of the mind as “thought” to direct and command the forces of Nature, instead of allowing them to direct and command us by becoming the motivational force that drives our thoughts. This Principle is also illustrated in the Tetragrammaton (4 Letter name of God) as choosing an ideal (perfected idea), that’s conceived and developed into an internal representation as a thought-form, that naturally gives rise to feelings of love (sensations) as natural response to the representation constructed, and manifests as the outer reality of our thoughts. We are always constructing and projecting the reality of our thoughts as the means of “experiencing them” as a whole (inner and outer) reality, that we then associate and identify with, and shape ourselves by way of them. It’s the higher mind that works to stimulate and call forth equivalent natural forces as a “response” to our thoughts, and not the other way around.

What’s referred to as the “New Age Movement”, which originated as an attempt to reinvent spirituality through a fundamental form of ignorance as to the true nature and function of Spiritual Laws, is designed to satisfy those who who never engage in any formal study of spiritual doctrine, and instead look for other people’s interpretations and ideas about things to adopt as their own, and mistake opinion for fact as a result. Many of the practices being professed by what seems like well-meaning people, have rendered powerful methods inept and ineffectual, and led it’s followers to engage willingly in what usually amounts to elaborate fantasies born out of an excited imagination. Our entire “reality and self” (which are the same thing on different scales and planes) is created and maintained out of our thoughts and how we form representations of ideas in the faculty of our imagination that serve to naturally call forth and give rise to correlated forces of Nature. We don’t work with our mind and reality by trying to act directly on these forces by guiding them through imaginary mechanical processes, but by using our mind and imagination in a masterful way that naturally calls them forth in creating the reality of our thoughts. This “process” naturally occurs through devoted study of spiritual principles and the contemplation of archetypal ideals as a “natural” way of thinking.

The Art of Interpreting Symbolic Imagery Designed to Communicate Higher Knowledge

Interpreting symbolic imagery is an art-form that only comes from an in-depth knowledge of the principles being illustrated. I wanted to use this famous Egyptian/Sumerian hieroglyph as the means of demonstrating how to translate symbolic imagery, because I have seen many instances where it was translated very poorly, or in a completely inaccurate way. We have a natural tendency to try and interpret ancient ideologies using our “modern paradigms” for understanding, instead of embracing the paradigm of those who wrote them. I’ve heard many say that the ancients just drew what they were seeing, and their writing should be taken literally as a result, and this imply isn’t true. Hieroglyphs were a universal language that illustrated ideas as principles in a way that could be conceptualized, which is the key factor to learning, and which could be interpreted equally by any race or culture. Due to the fact that they had to be interpreted, every single person formed a unique interpretation of the same idea.

One of the primary reasons for inaccurate interpretations is probably due to the fact that they don’t understand the imagery associated with occult sciences, which is the universal language of the ancient world. In ancient cultures around the world, the “soul” was a primary idea and what created the entire reality and life experiences of the human being. This particular piece is very rich in the symbolism that explains and describes how the Soul works on multiple levels simultaneously to create the illusion of reality as the means of gaining knowledge of itself through “experiences” of itself produced by both an inner and outer reality of the same nature. The only way we truly “know anything” is through experience, and in order to gain knowledge of our self we have to create experiences of our self.

I’m just going to give a basic interpretation of the symbolic concepts being illustrated, and allow you to fill in the blanks in whatever way makes sense to you. All symbolic imagery forms a “living language” that has to be interpreted in order to be understood, and every person forms a unique interpretation based on their level of knowledge and awareness. One of the things to always keep in mind is that in all symbolic compositions meant to represent a whole or greater idea, every single aspect used to compose it is a corresponding attribute and quality of the whole idea. This means that every shape, feature, number, color, quality, characteristic, and attribute has a specific purpose in communicating an important part of the greater idea. It’s this feature that gave us the saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Symbolic imagery is the only language that’s universal in nature and can be equally understood by everyone while forming a unique variation of the same idea. From a spiritual perspective, we’re all meant to not only be individuals in our own right, but to create our experience of reality in a way that’s unique to us as a personalized version of a universal concept.

The first thing you always want to notice is the overall idea being illustrated through the composition of the whole piece. This image shows a large figure communicating with three smaller figures of the same nature (they all look alike) on a different level (dimension) and scale (size). The large figure sits on a square cube behind a wall or barrier that’s decorated with a motif that symbolizes polar opposites joined at the base, situated between two vertical pillars that are held together by a linear base and an overhead canopy or plane. The large figure rests on the upper plane of the cube and is a unification of the polar opposites which serve as its foundation and throne. A square or cube represents material reality as the organization of the four elements that make up the soul’s “constitution”, and are what forms the basis for the reality of the soul as its outer projection.

The larger figure represents the “higher self” as the human soul that forms and administers the entire material plane as a projection. Its headdress is shaped like a cone with five-waves of energy that symbolizes the third-eye and the transmission, reception, and transduction of energy through the ether (5), where it flows in waves through the hair, beard, and garment, and down through the base or linear foundation on which the whole idea rests, and up into the garment of the smaller figure that’s opposite of it on the other side of the barrier. There are seven primary waves or levels of energy flowing through the foundation and are what “inform” the reality of the three smaller figures on the other side of the barrier. The barrier appears as a wall that’s comprised of 33 layers or joints (spine has 33 vertebrae) whose foundation (base ornament) is polar (twin spiraling serpents), and whose capstone is triune. These 7 waves are adorned with 4 circles that enclose an 8 pointed star, and are spaced evenly in a way that represents the relationship of Phi (Golden Mean and the Law of Thirds) as the part being proportionately the same as the whole (halving and doubling) by how they’re positioned in relation with the upper plane that rises out of it.

In the right hand of the Soul is a circle and rod, which represents the yoni (womb) and the phallic (seed), which are made out of the same thing formed into complementary shapes (shape always indicates function). This is also the basis for the Monad, which is symbolized as a sphere with a rod or staff vertically emerging from the center. This is also commonly symbolized by an egg with a serpent wrapped around it, and a “solar disk” as the circular head dress of certain deities resting in a chalice formed by a serpent, with a tail coming out of the back side and a head coming out of the front.

The pineal gland of the brain looks like a serpents head and tail when viewed in its natural state within the brain. Above the head of the Soul and forming the foundation for the canopy overhead, is three symbols that represent the Moon (Mother), Solar Sun (son) and the Cosmic Sun (Father). The left hand holds the beard through which the signal is being transmitted, which resembles a pillar, through which cosmic energy is being translated by the Soul. Both arms are bent in such a way they form a right angle, and where the pillar (phallic) rests in the lap (womb), and the posture of the whole body also forms a right angle. The higher Soul is a hermaphrodite, where feminine and masculine aspects exist in a balanced and harmonious state.

The rod that rises out of the foundation forms a backdrop that extends up forming a right angle that hangs over the top of the barrier (resembles the corpus callosum of brain), and has a smaller version of the same figure as “dual aspects”, represented by 2 heads and set of arms and hands that are holding and controlling the 2 cords used to hang the “solar disc” on the other side of the wall. All three profiles of the higher self are of the left side of the face (associated with Chokmah), and all three of the smaller images are of the right side (polar opposite as a mirror image) of the same figure (associated with Binah). The cord is formed by two pieces wound in a spiraling motion and forms a triangle shape that also forms a right angle (Pythagorean Triangle). The disk rests on a holder or cradle on the table, which is formed out of the same motif as the cube throne and wall, representing polarity (two spirals orientated in opposite directions, resting on 2 horizontal (parallel) planes) and a base with 10 parts (universal laws). The table has 2 legs (pillars) bound together and strengthened by a cross-brace on the underside and top of the table on the upper side. A table top represents a “plane” of existence.

The solar disc, also called Shemesh, is associated with Tiphareth on the Tree of Life (Sun) as the Higher Self or true human soul that never incarnates into the physical realm because it’s what’s “creating and orchestrating” the “entire” physical plane from a higher dimension. The Solar Disc represents the Monad, the 4 elements and cardinal signs, 3 emanations that rise out of them (also at a right angle), and the archetypes of the zodiac, which form, govern, and operate the physical plane. The circle with a smaller (sometimes shown as invisible or empty) center, is divided into four solid points that resemble the 4 corners of the Earth on a compass, the 4 seasons of time as a transition between opposites, and the 3 waves that emanate from the combination (relationship) of pairs, which together form a “whole” as the expression of 12 archetypal energies that arise out of 4 cardinal signs or Elements. It’s comprised of 4 emanations that sit at a right angle to 4 material Elements, forming an 8 pointed star. There’s a distinct relationship between 3 and 4, one representing the mind, the other the material world which is formed by the mind as a mirror image and reflection into a parallel plane. 8 represents an octave which is formed out of 7 notes (3+4=7) as a “whole scale”. The cosmic disc is represented by 8 emanations, whereas the solar disc is 4 emanations at right angles to 4 solid triangles, representing the emanations of the Father made manifest through the son.

The disc is a “mirror image” and projection of the Higher Self on a parallel plane (the left side of the face is shown on the large image, and the right side of the same image on the parallel plane), and can only be “seen” or “known” through the “whole reality” of the individual within that plane. The lower soul can never look upon the “face of God” (its creator), because in order to do so you’d have to die and enter into the same plane. We can only know our Higher Self as God by looking within at the thoughts being transmitted and absorbed by our subconscious (wavelengths being transmitted and conceived), which produces the basis for our outer experience of reality. This is the same idea that’s conveyed through the image of a bearded god (ancient of days) that’s emerging out of a “winged disc” that has 4 layers of horizontal feathers and 3 layers of vertical tail feathers, with two legs and spiral feet, commonly thought to represent a UFO.

The 3 smaller figures of the same character and appearance of the Higher Self, represent the 3 aspects of the mind, self, and soul, commonly referred to as the subconscious, self-conscious, and etheric double, which is what forms the template or blueprint for producing the entire plane of material existence as a mirror image of itself. The subconscious is the aspect of our self that exists in direct contact with our higher self and receives instructions on what to create through mental imagery. The small image that’s the furthest away from the larger one is the one that’s receiving direct transmission through the underlying foundation on which the whole scene rises out of.

Both arms of the figure receiving the transmission from the Higher Self are raised to the higher self, and in the middle figure one arm is raised to the Higher Self, while the other holds a torch in the left hand that’s being held by the right hand of the third figure, showing a transmission of knowledge through the direct connection of complementary opposites (polarity). The third figure holds the table, representing the plane of material reality that the original projection serves to in-form. The cap on each of the succeeding figures gets smaller and more rounded, losing its cone shape. The Higher Self has a cap with 5 parts (ether) and the receiving aspect of the lower self has 4 parts (material manifestation). The transmission of knowledge takes place through a sequence of correlated stages that are all polar aspects of each other as an outgrowth of the same thing. The passive acts as a receiver for the active force of the same nature, and once it’s impregnated with the idea given to it by the active component, gestates and grows it into a reality as its offspring.

 The basic idea being illustrated here is the Law of 3 in 1, or the One that has 3 aspects that perform different functions in creating the same thing. This is what’s called the “3-fold nature of the mind and soul”, and the 3 dimensions that make up physical reality as a 4th (unified) whole. The stature of the higher soul is larger because it contains all three aspects of the lower soul. All of what we experience as reality is a projection of our higher mind and is designed to acquire knowledge of it “self” through the “experiences” it creates of itself. Our Soul doesn’t just create our physical body as a specialized design that it then inhabits as a means of experiencing itself in the physical world, it’s the One creating the appearance of reality as a mirror image and projection of itself as both an inner and outer, and as a self and other. We can only “know” our true self through our “whole reality” which is necessary in order to create experiences of our self. We are not a body as a single aspect within a greater whole, but the whole itself. We are the one creating reality as a mental projection (step down process) from a parallel plane through the universal principle of polarity.

The Soul creates itself as a reality through the principle of complementary opposites that form 3 planes simultaneously as an upper and lower that are brought together in a unified state by a “middle”, and forms an inner and outer reality that are unified as an “experience”. This idea is illustrating what’s referred to as the Tetragrammaton in Esoteric Sciences, and the Tetrad (4 as a cube) in Sacred Geometry, both of which illustrate the process of creation. This is the process through which we’re “seeded” with an idea from our Higher Self (will), which is translated into a physical form in our imagination and developed with attributes and sensations, to produce an outer reality of the same nature. Everything comes about as a polar movement between passive and active aspects of the same thing, where an invisible idea as a frequency (pattern) is transmitted through the ether and received by the third-eye of its complementary aspect, and forms an internal image that becomes active as a blueprint for creating on that plane. The Will of our Higher Self forms the basis for all of our thoughts which are developed through sensory detail and give rise to complementary emotions, which form the basis for all material activity.  

We can’t experience our self while in a unified state, and so duality is necessary in order to create a 3-D reality that we use as the means of experiencing ourselves in relation with our self as another and a greater whole. The ancients were obsessed with the “soul” because in reality, the Soul is all there is. Our Soul, like our mind, has three inherent aspects that all perform different functions in creating the same thing. This idea is commonly represented by a divine being with 3 heads or faces, usually with a larger center one, and two smaller ones on each side, and in Sacred Geometry by the triangle or pyramid, which has 3 faces and points, one of which is exalted in the center, and two which are parallel to each other on the same plane as its foundation. The upper forms the basis for the lower and descends into the lower sphere of consciousness through a right angle. The upper is symbolized by a vertical line or column (phallic) and the lower is symbolized by a horizontal line that’s the reflection of the upper. An “L” or “V” shape is used to represent the same line formed as a reflection or shadow image of itself.

How to Know God and Ascend in Spirit to Higher Dimensions

In order to intelligently consider this idea we have to start by defining what we mean by “God”, because this idea is different for everyone. The word God is being used in this context to represent a higher power of universal consciousness as the laws and principles that govern the entire cosmos. God is not an entity or Deity, but the Universal Mind out of which all material phenomena is contained as a mental construct or holographic projection. As humans we have been bestowed with the same mind (conscious self-awareness) and have the ability to “know God” by becoming one with It in Mind. We only attain “knowledge of” something by becoming one with it in spirit and the same as it in mind and experiencing it from “within it as it”. We look out at the world through the same eyes and level of self-awareness. In this context “it” isn’t referring to an actual or single being, but the consciousness as a mental state that’s formed within as a direct and intimate experience of the same nature and kind that includes “all” of reality as a singularity or whole movement.

What we refer to as the spiritual world or realm is invisible to the physical senses and can only be known directly through thought and self-awareness. All thoughts are formed in the mind as an inner speech or voice that shapes an image of the thought in the imagination. All thoughts are formed as a product of or direct reflection of our state of mind or mood. Whatever state we exist in as a general rule determines what type of ideas we form a natural connection with and act as a host for bringing into expression as our internal representations that form a kind of symbolic template as a “theme” and metaphor for producing as an equivalent outer experience of reality. While we have a tendency to believe that the body gives rise to our mind and produces our thoughts, in reality, our body merely acts as a vessel or conduit for our mind to inhabit and use as the means of expressing and creating experiences of our “self” through.

Both our mind and higher human soul are not fixed ideas generated by a finite set of conditions as located within the space-time continuum, but are energetic formations that are constantly undergoing a process of evolution and transformation as acquiring and integrating different qualities and states of consciousness. The body and the personality of the body, often referred to as our lower, animal soul and subconscious, is merely the means through which the higher soul enters into a state of “separation with itself” as an “illusion produced by the mind” in order to create an “experience” of itself. All experience is created out of a state of duality as a projection of complementary opposites that act “on” each other to transform each other. We only acquire knowledge of ourselves through how we create our experiences. All “phenomenon” is created out of vibration which is the movement as a dance between the masculine (electric) and feminine (magnetic) aspects of the “same thing” that work together to produce the illusion of an “inner and outer” as being different and often unrelated. The foundation of vibration is movement, which can only occur through separation.

The mind is an aspect of the soul, and like the soul, exists on multiple levels simultaneously and is formed out of the same qualities and archetypal ideas that operate in a universal fashion as laws and principles. We have an individual mind, a family or group mind, race mind, cultural mind, and a cosmic or universal mind, all of which operate in harmony with each other based on a shared theme and type or level of consciousness that they all exist within. The mind is the “medium” through which we connect with the greater mind of humanity and the cosmos. Our physical body and our personality born out of the body, merely houses our mind and soul and acts as a “tuning mechanism” for “drawing in” consciousness from the atmosphere or astral plane of light that’s all around us. We not only tune ourselves to be a receiver and transducer through our thoughts and feelings, but also through expanding from an awareness of ourselves as being a body to being a part of a greater mind that encompasses the whole of reality in which we play a part.

In order to expand into the greater mind of humanity and the cosmos, we have to transcend our limited perception of ourselves as being a single personality, and realize that we’re also playing a role in a much larger dynamic where we’re a part of other people’s lives and serve to provide them with certain “types” of learning experiences as well. We have to expand our awareness beyond our sense of self that’s oriented to our body, which can only be done by purifying ourselves of negative emotions that keep us absorbed in playing out unconscious dramas that enhance and accentuate the feeling of separation. When we internalize everything to make it about us personally, we construct the walls of our own prison and condemn ourselves to a life of solitary confinement. It’s our emotions and passions that keep us locked into an unconscious state where we don’t realize we have the power to transcend them.

Emotions only exist as natural forces on the material plane where they keep us tied into a form of animal instinct where we use the creative power of our mind to produce whole realities as stories about ourselves and life that are fantasies. As long as emotions control our mind and how we think, determining what type of reality we create internally, we remain imprisoned by our own delusions. All emotional and psychological pain is self-administered when we stay shrouded in the cloak of our own ignorance as to our true, divine nature. As long as we continue to create an experience of our “self” as being our “body”, and therefore bound to the unconscious state of the body, we’re consumed with selfishness and remain nearsighted.

The only way we can truly “know” anything is by becoming “like” it. Like can only know what’s like itself. Like only has the power to produce more of what’s like itself. So in order to “know” God, we have to become “like” god. God only exists through mind and it’s only through our mind that we can become one with God. Not as an individual located within a single body and specific set of conditions and circumstances, but by expanding outside of ourselves to become a greater part of a conscious whole. We’re not only “having and experience” ourselves, but we’re also playing a significant role in a greater idea that provides a certain type of experience for others. We play a part in a greater pattern and are providing others with the means necessary for them to grow themselves in relationship with us. We play a part in our immediate family, community, society, and all of humanity. By expanding our awareness of ourselves as being a part of a greater whole, we can begin identifying with being a higher, universal being.

When we expand our mind and perception of our self to be of a more universal nature, we not only sense ourselves in a much more profound way, but we become conscious and aware of our part in the grand scheme of things. We begin relating and identifying with being a universal soul and take on the perspective and attitude of being of service to others and acting in a way that serves the highest benefit of everyone involved. We begin thinking of ourselves in a much more non-personal way. We begin putting thought into how it is we’re affecting and influencing others, aiding them in their growth somehow, or demonstrating a higher way of being, and it changes our perception of ourselves and gives us a renewed sense of purpose.

As long as we’re self-consumed and live out of dramas that self-administer our own pain and suffering by somehow making everything about us and taking things personal, we remain confined in the darkness of ignorance. As long as we grieve over the “bad hand” we feel we were dealt in life, or wallow in our own demise and self-pity, we remain a prisoner within the confines of our own mind. The very foundation of ignorance as an “error in self-awareness and realization” comes through selfishness and a reluctance to play our role harmoniously within a much greater idea that’s playing out. This is what it means to realize that you’re not your body living an insignificant life in a mundane situation, but are a universal being that has had many bodies, personalities, and different life experiences that served to shape you through your part in an ongoing cosmic story.

Creating the Experience of Becoming One with the Higher Mind of God

We can only attain knowledge through direct experience. In order to understand this idea, we have to bring it into practice as an experience. Here are a couple of methods you can use to begin learning how to look at your life differently and sense yourself in a much more expanded and powerful way.

Third Person Perspective: In any situation of your daily life, take a moment and instead of experiencing it within yourself looking out with all of your usual self-dialogue going on, imagine watching yourself from the distance and how you would appear to another person. Step outside of yourself and view the situation from a distant perspective where you don’t make anything that’s going on personal, but instead view it in as objective a manner possible. Imagine it as if it’s a movie where you’re not the main star or co-star, but simply playing one part of a bigger story. Dissociate from your body and personality and see yourself as just another person in a much larger situation, and watch how it changes your perspective on things and what your life seems to be about. Do this repeatedly throughout your day until you start getting good at it.

Meditation: The spiritual world of invisible consciousness can only be known through thought that’s felt inwardly. We can only know God by entering into the silence of our own mind. This means we have to quiet our own “thinking” as rambling thoughts formed through a chain of association that come in an automatic way. It’s our own internal dialogue fueled by habitual tendencies that create both a sense of separation from the whole, and our self as being our personality and conditioning. As we quiet our thoughts and become completely calm and fully relax our body (tension comes from thoughts that produce emotion in the body), our mind expands as an awareness that moves us outside of our body and into the space around us.

We begin expanding out into the space all around and sense ourselves as part of a greater whole. We sense ourselves as being a part of a greater mind and enter into the flow of universal consciousness all around us and we form a new, expanded sense of ourselves. We sense ourselves through a whole new way of being. We lose all sense of our self and become one with creation. We become all aspects that are playing complementary roles in a much bigger picture. We become pure presence, which strangely enough fills us with a feeling of bliss and euphoria. We realize that all of our pain and suffering results from the fact that we’re confined to a body. In this moment we know we’re actually a soul within a body and not limited to the body itself. We know this not as a theory that’s difficult to even grasp in practical terms, but from the direct and immediate experience of it as being it. It’s the “experience” that brings realizations that instantly transform you and your entire way of thinking and perceiving.

Conclusion

Through the experience of becoming one with the greater mind, attained only in meditation, introspection, and contemplation, a whole new series of realizations occur spontaneously. We learn truth from within the experience of it and so we never doubt it again. As we experience ourselves from within the silence of the greater mind that expands our awareness of our self, a whole new reality opens up that’s fresh and invigorating. We feel renewed and our purpose in life as a divine being becomes intimately clear and we fall in love with ourselves because we love how it feels to be who we really are. We realize that we’re not here to be consumed in constant personal dramas, but to play a significant and meaningful role in serving the whole of humanity in as fluid and harmonious way as possible. We step fully into ourselves as divine beings of a noble nature here to set humanity free by transcending the illusions of the emotional, animal subconscious that confines us to darkness by identifying with a specific animal body and point in time.

The Monad and the Law of One – Duality as a Singularity

The most basic mistake we make in life comes from an ingrained belief in duality as a fundamental form of separation. We imagine that the world exists as fragmented, independent parts that coexist while having no direct relation or influence on each other. This is largely due to the fact that the unified reality as a singularity exists in a state of polarity as a dynamic interaction of complementary opposites. Duality as a primary illusion of separation is necessary as the means of creating “experiences” of our “self” in relationship to others and the entire natural world of which we are a fundamental part. What we call “reality” is only important in the sense that it sets the stage necessary for the soul to create experiences of itself “as” a specific type of person. Experiences are then interpreted to form memories that become the means of self-realization and consciously evolving itself to higher and more complex levels of consciousness.

The Monad and the Law of One

The Monad is what we can think of as the primary law out of which all other laws emerge systematically as a form of growth process. It’s symbolized in Sacred Geometry as a dot or circle in the center of a larger sphere (circle), and is the same symbol used to represent the sun. The central dot represents the consciousness that expands outward as a form of respiration to produce an outer atmosphere of the same nature and likeness. In terms of physics, we can view this model as representing the dual nature of light, which is the essence of matter, as being both a particle and a wave simultaneously. It operates in a similar manner to what we now call the “torus” as the electromagnetic field of the mind that envelops and permeates all physical organisms. This idea represents the nature of what we can think of as the spirit and soul, and the physical body it creates as the means of becoming located within the space-time continuum for a short period of time, where it first acts to create the outer reality that it then locates itself in by inhabiting and utilizing a material body.

The wave-sphere contains what we can think of as the universal-infinite mind as all possibilities for creation in their potential state. The wave of all possibilities is then collapsed around one possibility through what we can think of as a process of natural selection as resonance (intention for creating). The wave is then formed into a particle (physical body) that expresses briefly as one possibility within a unique set of circumstances. As the soul-mind conforms itself to the body, and the conditions and unique circumstances of the body, fashioning itself as a personality, it forms a relationship as a constant interaction with the light around it to organize it into a corresponding outer configuration of the same nature and level of consciousness. The core essence of the soul within a body is constantly expanding outward, and through a kind of filtering process reorganizes the light by activating what’s of the same qualities as it is, and neutralizing what ever’s not. It then absorbs only the active components through its magnetic aspect and draws them back into the center of its being where they’re integrated as the means of growing and evolving its mental paradigm.

The Dyad and the Law of Relationship

The Monad creates a state of duality by regenerating and multiplying itself as a mental projection of itself that’s perceived as another in order to be able to “experience itself” in relationship with itself. As it divides and separates from itself (same principle as mitosis) it produces an illusion of itself “as” another, and simultaneously as a coherent outer environment. This process of self-regeneration and division forms the Dyad (a double Monad), where the two centers are directly connected and exist as the outer periphery of each other, forming an “interference pattern”.

An interference pattern is where two wave-forms (spheres) of the same nature (frequency) resonate and merge energetically with each other, amplifying some aspects while canceling out others, to produce a new pattern as a variation of the original pattern they shared in common. A pattern can be thought of as a combination of qualities in various measure and degrees as a formula of consciousness that vibrates at a certain frequency producing correlated physical characteristics. Characteristics have natural behaviors and functions inherent in them that determine how they express to produce correlating realities.

Resonance, Sympathetic Induction, and Coherence

Whatever formula of various qualities we exist as (usually represented in our birth chart) determines the rate we vibrate at. As we embody and bring certain qualities into expression, we intimately connect and form resonance with those same qualities in everything else. As we radiate and transmit our inner qualities we resonate with everything around us that possesses the same qualities. Resonance is where we energetically “enter into and become one with” the same vibratory frequencies around us (qualities of consciousness). Through continued interaction as a relationship both vibrations are altered and modified slightly from their original state (pattern), and over time, become synchronized by vibrating in harmony with each other forming a new pattern as a variation of the original one that acted to connect them. As we form a relationship with our self (same consciousness) in another, we act “on our self” to evolve our self into new variations as a modified formula of active (expressing) qualities.

Polarity and the Nature of Complementary Opposites

Here’s another idea that tends to produce a fundamental misunderstanding of a basic idea. We often don’t understand the true meaning of “qualities” as states of consciousness and our “self” (soul) as a formula of qualities that act to produce our physical characteristics. All qualities exist in a dual state as a range of vibration that forms a kind of sliding scale between opposite aspects of itself that are necessary in order to create the quality as an experience of our self that develops our character accordingly. Whatever characteristics we develop in ourselves serve to determine our natural behaviors and what type of reality we produce as a basic form of self-expression.

The Dyad, which is also referred to as the Vesica Piscis and “womb of the universe” out of which all reality is formed (Triad) and projected (Tetrad), exists as the Monad in a polar state (opposite spin) of both feminine (inner) and masculine (outer) aspects of the same vibratory frequency as a dynamic living pattern. All qualities are also dual in nature and exist as a range of vibration between opposite poles that form a singular movement that gives rise to a specific type of reality as both an inner experience (of self) which then forms the basis for an outer experience of the same kind. We create our character based on the decisions we make in the present that form all our actions.

We can only “know ourselves” to be a certain way by contrasting our self with another whose of an opposite nature. We can only create an experience of ourselves as being “good” by how we exist in relationship with whatever we deem to be “bad”, by how we either relate and become like, or contrast and become the opposite. We can only experience ourselves as kind by how we relate and contrast ourselves to what we consider to be unkind or selfish. It’s only through our perception of our opposite aspect that we define ourselves as being a specific way and develop ourselves as possessing desired characteristics. Every time we encounter evil, it lays the foundation for active use of choice and will, where we decide how we’re going to be and what we’re going to do in relationship with it. Good and evil exists as complementary opposites of the same quality as an idea, because one serves to stimulate and call into existence the other one. One only exists “as” good or bad in relationship to its opposite quality.

So to ask the question “why do bad things happen to good people”, bypassing of course what we’re actually referring to as bad and good, we can realize that they become good through the constant decisions their making while in challenging situations being referred to as bad. It’s through the impact and pressure caused by unfortunate or traumatic events or situations that lays the foundation for making decisions as to who and what they’re going to become in response to it. However they respond determines who they become. It’s only when in the presence of bad that we can accurately shape ourselves to be good. One serves as a mirror necessary for realizing the other one.  

All of what we call “vices” (weaknesses and poor character traits) is transformed by choosing to employ their complementary virtue in their place. A “whole pattern” contains every aspect as a reality with multiple roles needed to produce it as an experience. Qualities form ideas that are dynamic holographic patterns where every part is an aspect of the whole, and their actions serve to create and sustain the whole. We don’t become bad people because bad things happen to us, we become one way or another based on how we enter into relationship with what happens to us and the decisions we make while in the moment that serve to define as one way or another. We can only know ourselves as being courageous when in the midst of feeling afraid. The greater the fear, the more exalted our sense of courage in overcoming it.

Strong and Weak Forces

Our soul’s energy follows the same principles as the forces that govern and orchestrate the material world of reality (which it’s actually producing). The mind-soul of the individual exists as either a weaker force or a stronger one in relation to other individuals. We all possess both active and passive aspects, and while the ideal is to operate them consciously through awareness and intention, most develop themselves to be one way or the other, often lacking balance. When two people come together in a relationship of some kind, one clearly becomes the dominating influence over the other, and as a result acts to take control of the will of the other.

While it’s often thought that males are dominant over females, where they assert and lead, and their female companion supports and follows, the fact is we all have both feminine and masculine aspects inherent within us that we utilize in different ways. A woman can be just as dominating in a relationship as a man can be. Gender is not the determining factor in whether or not someone displays either dominant feminine or masculine qualities. Many men have dominant feminine energy, and many women have dominant masculine energy. The term dominant simply indicates which one they’re “in” most of the time or as a general rule, which also determines who they’re attracted to as an intimate and passionate relationship. Attraction only occurs between polar – complementary opposites. There’s never an exception to this, regardless of gender. Even in homosexual relationships one plays the feminine role as the energy they utilize most often, and the other plays the masculine role.

In what we consider healthy relationships that are harmonious and serve to grow and evolve both people, there’s a dynamic exchange of passive and active roles based on the activities being engaged in. Under certain circumstances, one is better suited to take the leading, dominant role, and the other allows and complies with them. Then, based on different circumstances and activities, the other one may be more qualified to take the dominant role, while the other participates and benefits from it. We usually employ our masculine energy when going out into the world in professional activities that are competitive, and then relax into our feminine energy when we come home to our family and private life. Masculine energy tends to be assertive, self-oriented, analytical, and competitive, while feminine energy tends to be compassionate, group-oriented, intuitive, and nurturing. Most life skills that are effective on both the personal and professional level require a harmonious unification of both energies simultaneously.

Reality is a Mental Construct of the Soul

Another idea that’s difficult to grasp in the practical sense is the fact that all of reality as we’re capable of knowing it exists as both objective (non-personal) and subjective (personal) simultaneously. This is usually due to the fact that we mistake the soul for being the body, personality, and identity formed as a material being. All reality is formed through the dynamic series of relationships formed between three aspects and three levels (dimensions) simultaneously as a cohesive and singular act. What we refer to as the soul exists as a form of “medium” between the upper plane of pure consciousness in its potential and unformed state, and is what acts to draw spiritual qualities known as archetypes into itself as a sphere of specialized consciousness, and shape it into a material form. This material form shaped in the mind is then projected outward and reflected downward into the lower plane of material forms as one possibility for the manifestation of a universal idea.

The soul exists in a polarized state (symbolized as mercury) that vibrates at a frequency that can access the lower regions of the higher plane in its most exalted state, and the highest region of the lower plane to birth the material reality inherent in the upper plane. The individual soul is “constructed” out of the essence that it creates through the frequency it consistently produces as a personal creation that it then uses as the means of evolving itself. It works through the same principle as DNA does by taking two strands of complementary information and combining them to form a new one that exhibits the traits of both parents in different degrees. The soul is represented as feminine because it draws in the seed of the higher spiritual plane as an archetypal idea, and through a process of gestation adapts it to its current energetic structure that imbues it with specific physical characteristics. It then adapts and modifies it into a singular possibility that can be naturally birthed through the current conditions and circumstances of its physical body and its specific location within time.

The vibration as pure, unadulterated ideas of the spiritual plane is too far apart to form resonance with the lower plane, and therefore requires a medium frequency that acts as a transducer in order to manifest as a material form on the lower plane. Spirit doesn’t have the ability to act and create directly on the lower plane of a material existence, and can only act in the world through the medium of the soul in order to affect it. There’s no such thing as divine intervention that acts independent of you and in spite of you. God, so to speak, only acts in your life “through you” as your higher soul.

The spiritual plane is comprised of archetypes that provide a kind of prototype or thematic template for creating an infinite number of variations as personal creations of the individual soul. It exists in an unformed state that can only be accessed and utilized by your higher soul. This is where we get the saying “God only helps those who help themselves”, because it’s your soul as your energetic essence accumulated and built up over time that vibrates at a high enough frequency to access and absorb the higher powers of the spirit. Our higher soul in turn acts to impregnate the imagination, which is likewise the medium of the mind that exists between the higher plane of the human soul and the lower plane of the animal soul, and serves to deliver a message as a feeling, vision, and inner voice that directs the subconscious of the body to take action on the idea, and as a result, produces it as a reality.

An ideal drawn down in its potential state as an intention and desire for creating as a reality undergoes a dynamic series of adaptations that modify it into a form that’s unique to the individual applying it as a means of creating. An archetype is adapted to the mental model of the human soul, which is then projected in its modified form into the mind and imagination of the personality, where it’s adapted and modified further, and then it’s adapted in the imagination based on how it’s going to be applied in order to produce it as a reality. Once its manifest as a reality, the soul reabsorbs it as an experience that’s then “drawn back up into the higher soul” as the basis for forming a memory of itself as the expression of a universal archetype.

The creative process comes by way of drawing in a seeded idea that’s then developed in the imagination by forming new combinations (Dyad) to produce a unique variation that’s then used as a template for projecting into the lower sphere to create as an experience of reality. The soul produces its own experiences that become the memory that it uses to shape it itself as an individual. It acts on itself to evolve itself through active use of choice, imagination, and will. The soul produces endless variations of itself that serve to reformulate its essence. The universal law (which means it operates on all planes simultaneously) of vibration works as a polarized movement between an inner and outer pole as the respiration of the mind. This flow of intelligent energy works by the same principle as an electromagnetic field that simultaneously expands and contracts organizing light-essence through a filtering system to be of the same idea. Our inner forms the vibration of the outer as a complementary pattern by influencing it to express in a corresponding manner as a variable, then absorbs it as an experience that serves to influence the inner into a modified version of the original.

The World Soul and the Individual Human Soul

 What we have come to recognize as both an objective and subjective version of reality comes by way of a planetary soul that provides the environment for the individual soul to create experiences of itself. It’s the union of souls as fields that exist within even greater fields that vibrate in harmony with each other as the means of co-creating a joint experience of a shared reality. It operates by the same principle as light existing simultaneously as a particle and a wave, and the holographic principle where the part contains the information inherent in the whole, and the whole consists of its parts. It’s where the “parent pattern” (Dyad) produces fractal patterns as a process of self-replicating on different scales and levels to produce the same idea in unique variables, both of which are states of duality that function harmoniously to produce a singularity. The two complementary aspects work in harmony to produce a functional third.

A basic mistake is made in perception when we fail to realize that the Earth, like all stars and planetary bodies, is actually a living, sentient being as a soul that vibrates at a specific frequency and forms Nature as an objective reality that all other souls experience as being separate from them, while also forming the basis for creating through a consensus. All vibration has a holographic (3-dimensional) pattern has a self-assimilating mechanism inherent in it that organizes and condenses light into a certain type of reality as a global environment. This is what we experience as the collective unconscious as the unified field of the material world (subconscious) that unites all planetary beings within the same basic and neutral version of reality.

As Humans we’re born into the manifestation of the Earth’s soul as the objective reality of Nature that provides the stage for producing personal manifestations as subjective versions of the same reality. While we can draw in an archetypal idea that we resonate with, we use the same overall reality to produce a unique variation by how it’s adapted to our mental paradigm and modified accordingly. As we create unique variations of the same overall ideas, we are subject to our own creations and they serve to shape us through the integration of the memories we form out of them. Our reality is our offspring because it always comes as the union of multiple planes to produce a coherent whole. This principle is illustrated through the Myth of the god named Kronos as devouring his own children, which were symbolic of the Four Elements that make up reality. We first form a union that allows for a new experience, then we absorb and assimilate our own creation as our perception and interpretation, that we synthesize to modify the whole.

The Universal and the Individual

The Law of One (Monad) illustrates in very dynamic terms that we’re (our soul) always drawing on the ideas of the universal to produce the individual to be of a similar, yet modified nature. The inner core acts to organize and reconfigure the outer reality to be of the same nature. The outer manifestation is then absorbed as an experience and used to reshape the inner as a unique variation that acts to evolve the energetic structure of the individual soul, which then forms the perceptual model that alters the outer world to take on a slightly different form, and again absorbed to upgrade the mental paradigm birthing it.

We’re always either taking in ideas of the physical plane produced and being projected by others throughout history (as the collective unconscious), or we draw from the higher planes of novel, archetypal ideas in an unformed state (principles), and act to create truly new and unique ideas. There’s a constant movement that’s represented by a 90 degree angle as an “L” shape, where we either draw down ideas in archetypal form as principles from the spiritual plane (vertical line) and reform and project them to create in the material plane (horizontal line), then reverse the process and absorb them into the soul on a higher plane as memory or itself.

This 90 degree angle also represents that whatever plane we draw on in order to create (horizontal or vertical) we use to shape ourselves (soul) to be like in nature, bonding ourselves energetically to that plane. When we shape ourselves according to the ideas and opinions of others, we fail to realize our true ability as a higher soul to draw on divine ideas by embodying virtuous qualities, and as a result degrade ourselves to our lowest form as an intelligent animal. Whatever we identify with as an experience of ourselves we shape ourselves to be of the same nature. We’re always either identifying with our Higher Self as a creative, individual soul, or as a part of a group mind shaped by the opinions of others through our formative conditioning. Either way, the choice is always ours.

How we Progress as a Soul through Employing Higher Knowledge

Our true spiritual development can seem a bit elusive because we’re often not clear on the difference between acquiring knowledge in its theoretical form and bringing it into practice as a means of “creating ourselves” by way of it. Many people can discuss what we can think of as “spiritual ideas” in a fairly intelligent way based on what they’ve learned through studying other people’s ideas, yet have no idea how to “apply it” in terms of “becoming it” as a practice and developing themselves through the experience it brings. We only truly learn (live and earn) through experience, and we only truly know what we actively demonstrate.

In an attempt to understand what we deem higher knowledge, we can then haphazardly take the approach of denying or excluding some aspects of our self that we deem to be of our lower nature, while trying to more fully utilize what we consider to be of our “higher nature”. We take the “divide and conquer” approach, instead of the “unite and empower” approach to our own well-being. Some deny and shun their physical existence in favor of some form of idea they consider higher or superior in some way. Some believe all they have to do is be able to recite ideas as theory without ever having to actually employ them in the practical sense as a means of producing whatever it is it claims to produce. These various approaches result from a basic confusion as to the actual purpose of life and the creative power of the soul to create not only itself, but also its perception and experience of reality.

The soul is equivalent to the Self and utilizes a physical manifestation as the means of growing and transforming itself to different states and ways of being. The “self” is not developed in the most basic sense (energetic) by material possessions and status, but through the qualities we embody and become that forms our character as a way of being in the world. It’s only the qualities and ideas we embody and develop into a habit through consistent practice that becomes a natural part of us. By repeating a process or attitude enough times, we “build it into our muscle” (subconscious), so to speak, where it becomes intuitive. With enough daily practice it becomes a natural part of our awareness and being as an unconscious and automatic perception and behavior. We acquire it as a form of skill and instinct where we do it naturally without having to think about it.

Our soul isn’t formed out of intellectual concepts that we preach and profess but never actually bring into practice. It’s only what we embody and “become one with” as a channel of expression that we become like in essence. It becomes a natural part of us and we perceive it in everything around us while doing it as a natural part of our personality. This is expressed through the axiom “you know them by their deeds”. It’s not what we say that reveals who we are, but what we do. Being and doing are extensions of the same thing. Our actions reveal our consciousness as a coherent state of being.

When the soul leaves or discards the body, it absorbs all the experiences it produced and acquired through the body, and they’re integrated into the mental paradigm of the soul as qualities that form our disposition, temperament, moral character, and natural tendencies. Some believe that all you have to do is imagine ideas, going on the fact that the subconscious doesn’t know the difference between an actual event and an imagined one, while failing to realize that the imagination is the means through which we program the subconscious with ideas that we want it to produce as part of our perception and form natural behaviors out of.

Most imaginary scenarios aren’t effective because most don’t know how to actually imagine something as a full sensory experience that elicits a desirable emotional response. Some repeat affirmations as a verbal script or saying that they think is the means for programming their subconscious, yet the subconscious is “experiential” in nature and is only “programmed” by an idea that’s turned into a full sensory reality as a direct experience in the imagination. The subconscious is also “emotionally driven”, which means that it moves towards pleasure and away from pain. As we form the desired reality in our mind as a representation, we have to present it in a way that naturally invokes a very positive and compelling emotion. If we portray it with any form of stress, fear, or anxiety associated to it, our subconscious will receive it as an idea to avoid, prevent, or move away from.

The Soul and the Faculty of the Mind

The soul can be thought of as the “mind” which is structured as a paradigm or coherent model out of accumulated memory that’s been integrated through experience. As we experience something we form all kinds of realizations around it that we didn’t know when contemplating it theoretically, and the experience itself is what “integrates” it into our paradigm through a process of adaptation. Once the idea becomes an actual memory as part of our paradigm it becomes an inherent part of our reality. We can only conceive of what we know from direct experience. The only thing we’re capable of perceiving outside of us is what can be formed, explained, described, and validated through our mental paradigm. Until we have an actual experience of something, we can’t truly know it. To have true knowledge of something is to be intimate with it by “becoming one with it” in spirit, mind, and body, as the expression of it.

The true means the soul has for developing itself in an intentional manner is by “drawing down” and acting to absorb the archetypal ideals and qualities of the higher, spiritual plane. We do this either consciously through active choice as to whom we want to become, or unconsciously through reactive behavior born out of our formative conditioning. The process of personal transformation as a conscious act of self-creation comes by recognizing the qualities in you that you’ve developed as strengths that are of what you decide to be an undesirable nature, often called weaknesses and vices, and choosing to replace them instead with more positive qualities, referred to as virtues. Vices and virtues are the negative and positive aspect of any idea that serves to contrast each other as a means of comparing, defining, and stimulating each other into existence. We can only know “hot” by how it exists in relationship it to what we consider “cold”, both of which are “temperatures” of the same thing separated only by degrees that move along a sliding scale from one extreme to another. 

All qualities exist in a polar state as complementary opposites of the same idea. They exist as extremes of each other with a form of gradual movement along a scale that moves from one extreme to another. Fear and courage are qualities that oppose yet complement each other. When we’re experiencing fear of some kind, we have a choice to either respond with courage or cowardice. We can transform fear by choosing to embody courage in relation with it. When we’re scared and feel afraid, we polarize ourselves to the energetic state of fear and act naturally to attract and encounter situations that elicit more fear. Whatever “state” (mental and emotional) we exist in we act to multiply it through an accumulative process.

Fear causes us to stop, shut down and avoid what’s causing it, usually not taking any constructive action while being mentally controlled by the fear. This provides us with the ideal situation to “choose” to be either courageous or a coward. As we step into the fear with a sense of brave sense of conscious awareness, the fear begins steadily subsiding until it dissolves, and is replaced by a feeling of empowerment. The more we do this, the more courageous and confident we become and the less afraid and insecure. It’s not what happens to us in life that serves to shape us, but how we choose to respond to what happens through the relationship we form with it.

Our spiritual development comes by way of our soul’s recognition that it has the ability to self-create by way of acting on itself to transform vices as weaknesses into virtues as strengths. It comes through how we develop our character through our ability to actively choose what qualities as a state of consciousness we’re going to become and use as the means of experiencing ourselves. The soul creates itself through how it creates its own experiences of life. We are always the one creating our experiences, and naturally form them out of our perceptions. All intentional creation comes through our ability to become self-aware and form realizations around our true nature that provides us with the basis for making new decisions as to how we’re going to enter into relationship with life. As we make new decisions and begin willfully acting them out, we set a new pattern into motion that acts to transform an existing pattern as unconscious tendencies.

Conscious creation comes by developing our self through universal archetypes as qualities and ways of being that shape us to be a certain type of person who naturally lives a certain type of life as our “story”. Mythology of the gods is what provides us with the psychological tools necessary to be able to tell whatever type of story we have an inclination towards and true desire to tell. Once we realize how we want to be, we can recognize all the tendencies we have that are preventing or counteracting it, and can act on ourselves in a deliberate manner to transform them.

Only what becomes habit as a natural way of being is carried forward after the death of the body. Our material status and worldly success is meaningless outside of how we developed our character by way of them. In this way, having an easy life with no serious challenges can be a detriment to our spiritual growth and cause complacency. It’s not the circumstances of our life that matters, but only who we choose to become in relationship with and by way of them.

10 Universal Laws, 7 Hermetic Principles, and 22 Paths of Transformation

All of what we call the “major systems” of Spiritual Sciences are correlated with each other and form a dynamic series of correspondences that serve as the means for interpreting the principles that they all share in common. All actual or true spiritual knowledge as “higher knowledge” is based on a practical understanding of laws and principles. All material systems as organized elements that form what we perceive as reality are shaped (organized, ordered, and structured), held together as dynamic patterns, and animated as behavior by universal principles.

The primary difference between natural laws that govern the material world and universal laws are that the universal produce the physical as an offspring or correspondence, and physical laws can be “over-ridden” and transformed by universal ones, which are “causal” (creative) in nature. Natural laws explain how systems operate and behave once they come into existence, whereas universal laws are what give rise to the physical systems themselves through an act of true creation. Universal laws are of the mind and soul, while physical laws describe the natural activities that the material forms created by the mind take on as behaviors.  

The fundamental means of creation come by 3 primary forms of expression: numbers, letters, and words. The numbers used in any system are not a means of counting, but represent principles and how they exist in relationship with each other to form a whole. Numbers are interpreted as principles that are correlated with letters and words, and together form a whole system of correspondences as sounds, colors, symbols, geometric shapes, planets, archetypes, and metaphorical ideas, and so on, that are all of the same “nature” as a quality of consciousness or state of mind. Our mental state is what forms our vibratory frequency as a dynamic metaphorical pattern that then forms our perceptual lens that’s used for shaping our material reality to be of the same pattern on a larger and more inclusive level.

The “causal plane” of the mind exists as a “singularity”, and in the system of Numerology the Laws that it’s comprised of are represented by the single digits of 0 through 9, with 10 being 1 on a higher scale or octave. All multiple digit numbers are reduced to a single digit that reveals the primary principle involved. All combinations of numbers construct a formula that demonstrates the relationships involved between the active principles. Numbers are philosophically interpreted to find their meaning as the principles that are active and expressing to create in any material formation. The principles that are actively demonstrated through the numbers involved provide us with instructions as a formula for working with them in the practical sense. The 10 primary Universal Laws are purely energetic (mental) in nature and serve to give explicit instructions on how to use our “mind” to create reality. Reality as we know it is a mental construct that’s formed out of our consciousness as our “perception” of it.

The first 3 laws (0-2) are actually 1 law with 3 aspects that perform different functions of the same thing, and are called the “3 in 1 Law”, also referred to as the Trinity or Triad. The Triad represents the 3-fold nature of the mind, soul, and self, which also makeup what we perceive as a 3-D reality or hologram. This primary law reveals the nature of the “Supernal” as being comprised of dual aspects (masculine and feminine), which combine to form a unified reality. This 3 in 1 Law (0, 1, 2) is considered the “Parental Law” (represented by the Dyad) as what acts to birth the Triad, represented by 3, which is considered the first “real” number as the “mental formation” of an idea. It’s real in the sense that it’s here that an idea is first organized into a light-form in the faculty of the imagination (inner) and serves as the basis for organizing material reality (outer) to be of the same pattern as a thematic idea. The inner and outer are actually a continuation of each other.

Out of the Primal Triad comes its offspring as a mirror image, and births the material world through 7 primary principles. The first “true number” is 3, forming 7 principles that systematically emerge from the Dyad as 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. All proceeding principles maintain their polarized state as a relationship between the inner and outer, self and another, and upper and lower as the means of constructing material reality. There’s a complementary relationship between 3 and 4, 5 and 6, and 7 and 8, which culminates in 9 as a complete and perfected cycle of creation. 

The 10 primary Universal Laws are represented in the Qabalah as spheres of consciousness that exist in correlated “energetic states” as a creative process that uses archetypes as unformed (invisible) ideas to produce an equivalent material reality. This entire creative process is also dual in nature as a movement between upper and lower planes that provides us with the process for both formation and transformation. These principles are also represented in the Tarot as the 22 trump of the Arcanum which provides us with a “key” for interpreting the 10 primary laws and the 22 Paths of the Qabalah.

The first 11 principles of the Tarot involve formation as a complete cycle, and the second 11 the process for transformation of the original form created to a higher and more perfected state. The 22 major Arcanum of the Tarot form a dynamic series of correspondences that correlate with the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet and can be used for interpreting and deciphering the symbolic “code” inherent in words and names. The Qabalah has 10 primary and 1 “invisible” sphere (11) that’s not an actual principle as an operation, but symbolizes instead moving from a higher plane to a lower one for a total of 11 spheres.  These 11 spheres correspond with the 22 archetypes of the Tarot as a descent of spirit into form and then the ascent back into spirit as the full cycle of creation and transformation.

The 7 Hermetic Principles represent mental states and processes of creation that are energetic in nature and correspond with the 7 chakras of the subtle body (mind), 7 planets of the zodiac, 7 colors of the spectrum, 7 notes of a musical scale, and so on. The key to understanding spiritual principles in terms of being able to accurately interpret them is in understanding the Law of Correspondence, which is the 2nd of the 7 Principles. These principles give us insight and instruction on how to use our mind to create our self and our reality, which are done through the same mental process. Following a metaphorical correspondence to the 7 chakras, the first 3 are immutable (meaning they can’t be changed or transcended), and the 4 that proceed out of them are mutable and can be worked with by using the first 3 to transform them.

All laws exist as a relationship where one lays the foundation necessary for the next to spontaneously arise out of it as a growth process (the beginning and end as a continuous cycle). When we’re looking at the principle represented by 3 as the Triad, it comes as the full expression of 0-2, while still containing the latent potential of 4-9. The Monad, which is the primary principle of the mind and soul, contains the seeded potential for all the rest, which it acts to birth as a process of creation by turning an invisible idea into a material form.

All names that are used in spiritual texts and allegories are actually a “code”, which when interpreted accurately through the formula of principles inherent in the letters that spell the name, give us great insight into the active forces as an operation that’s actively expressing through their personality and activities. Throughout biblical texts there are 72 (9) names of God that are used in the context of various allegories, which serves as a code that reveals the law as an operation being used and quality of consciousness being expressed through the nature of the operation.

In a similar manner, any sequences of numbers serve as a formula of principles that together perform a singular operation. While all multiple digits are broken down to a single digit as a primary principle or stage of an overall process, the numbers the formula’s comprised of gives us further clues as to the qualities and relationships involved. Example: 163 = 10 = 1. The 163 gives us insight into the energetic nature of 10, and how it exists in relationship with 1 as a combined function of a particular nature. The 1, 6 and 3 are principles as a relationship or sequence of coordinated activity that acts as instructions for “how to” perform the overall operation represented by 1.

Names, dimensions, dates, coordinates, relationships, symbolic form, colors, sounds, and so on, are providing us with dynamic formulas as to the “inner nature” (soul) of something, not as an actual physical description of the object itself. While we tend to think that the spiritual world is symbolic of the material world, it’s actually the other way around. The form doesn’t give rise to the life that inhabits it, it’s the “life” as the soul that acts to shape the form as a correspondence or symbolic representation of itself. Our soul exists as an archetype imbued with specific attributes and qualities that form a corresponding vibration. All vibration is a thematic pattern shaped by a mental image. Whatever image of ourselves we form we systematically shape others and the world at large to be of the same image and likeness. The nature of the form gives us clues as to the nature of the consciousness that first acts to shape it then animates it with life.

It’s only through our inherent (practical) understanding of universal law and principles and the dynamic system of correspondences that we can accurately decipher the code hidden in material form as the principles actively operating to create it and then use it to express through. The chain-of-association that naturally takes place when we view everything as symbolic is based on our personal knowledge of attributes and qualities that pertain to specific ideas as correlations. As with algebra, we can know the unknown parts of any equation by how they exist in relationship to the known parts. All material form is shaped as a relationship with its creator.

Meditation, Self-Realization, and Transcending the Illusion of Reality

While many people approach the idea of meditation as a method of some kind that’s designed to produce a predictable effect, and believe there are only certain ways to “truly meditate”, the fact may be that it’s a process through which we train our mind to step outside of our lower, conditioned nature and connect intimately with our higher Self. In our Western society, which has a tendency to focus almost exclusively on our physical nature, meditation is often seen as a means of calming the mind and inducing deepened states of relaxation, which is the beginning stage of most meditative processes.

Some people even go so far as to argue about what’s meditation and what’s not, indicating that there’s a right way of doing it and a wrong way. Yet meditation, like any spiritual practice, which means it involves how you use your own mind to achieve altered states of consciousness, is something that’s done in a unique way by everyone doing it. There are no rules of right and wrong ways, simply guidelines that provide us with a starting point as a means of producing the foundation out of which a natural process arises and becomes active beyond our ability or desire to control it. If you’re held to the idea of a right and wrong way, and go about it by obeying rules laid down for you by others, then it simply becomes a relaxation technique or produces whatever the structured process is designed to produce.

Meditation as a Spiritual Practice

Meditation as a spiritual practice provides us with a means of calming and subduing our habitual thoughts and impulses, while forming a place of inner peace and silence that ultimately connects us with our Higher Self. It also provides us with a process for being able to step outside of and detach from the conditioned “content” of our mind and view it instead from an objective and unemotional perspective. As we detach from our own thoughts and story about things and view them instead from a perspective of “witnessing” them, we begin realizing the “process” involved that acts to give rise to our thoughts. We can watch the impulses as they rise up, form into a whole synchronized series of interrelated thoughts that peak and express momentarily, then subside, die down, and fade away, while another impulse rises in its place.

By quieting the mind of outer awareness and habitual thoughts, we become present with our inner awareness. Our focal point becomes our own feelings and allowing our thoughts to freely flow by without grabbing onto them or penetrating them and going into a detailed story or narrative of some kind. As we simply sit on the shore and content ourselves with watching our thoughts flow by we can begin realizing that it’s merely the “content” of our mind produced by our conditioning, and we become aware instead of the process involved in “producing our thoughts” as our perception of reality, which is a form of delusion that we’ve mistaken for being “who we are”. By observing the content of our mind we can begin realizing that we’re not the story itself, but rather the mind that’s producing and acting to give rise to the story “about” our self. We’re the author and storyteller, and not the story itself. Our soul is our mind as the medium through which the story plays out as a reality.

Once we gain realization around how it is that we’re acting to “create our self” through the reality we create through the perspective of our conditioning and personality, we can begin questioning our own motives, and gaining even deeper realizations about the nature of our unconscious mind and how it acts to produce our perception of reality. As we move into the emotions that drive our thoughts and actions, while maintaining an awareness that’s detached from the need to somehow justify and validate our reality as being true, the illusion of it becomes more and more apparent, and our identification with our body and personality begins slowly fading away. We can gain an awareness of our “self” as the medium through which our thoughts take place, rather than being the thoughts themselves.

As we continue to become aware of the process our mind undergoes as a means of creating our perception of reality, we begin stepping into our true identity as the mind and soul that’s creating it as a mental projection. This awareness as a new and higher form of self-realization liberates us from the delusion of our conditioning and we no longer have a need to continue creating it. As our conditioned mind begins dissolving and fading away, we begin sensing our “self” and reality as it really is, apart from our story. We see with great clarity that we were creating our self out of a false identity through an unconscious state where we didn’t realize in the direct sense who we really are, what we were doing, and how it is that we were doing it.

As we gain a deeper awareness of our self as our higher consciousness, we shed the identity of our conditioning, neutralizing and purifying our body, and it becomes the temple as a vehicle for our higher self to create from a fully conscious state of “actual” self-awareness. We come fully into the realization that the material reality is not who we are, but something we create by formulating it inwardly as imagined thoughts that are then projected outwardly. All needs and desires for material possessions and status that used to provide us with the means for defining ourselves and feeling secure in our false identity begins to disappear. As we realize that we’re not “of this world” or dimension, and begin consciously residing in a higher awareness, we assume a natural position of serving others. Our karma that was incurred through unconscious conditioning resolves and we no longer continue to live and create out of it. Liberation comes as a “mental state of being”, not a physical one. The mental is what lays the foundation for the physical to naturally emerge out of.

Seeded Meditation

Another method of meditation comes by entering into an altered state of passivity, while setting an intention to acquire information about something as an answer to a question or problem. By fully relaxing our mind and body, calming all habitual thoughts while relinquishing the need to try and control or come up with the answer from our conditioned mind of personal memory, and impressing the question on the empty space within and around us, then letting go and residing patiently in silence, we connect with higher consciousness and act as a passive “receiver” for information that provides us with the answer to our inquiry. Questions and answers, like higher and lower planes of the same reality, exist in polarity to each other. They’re complementary aspects of the same idea as a holographic pattern.

By focusing our attention in a single minded fashion on the question, free from distractions, we tune ourselves energetically (spiritually) to the answer, and serve as a passive receiver for the answer to come “through us”. As long as we’re actively trying to “figure out the answers”, we exist in an active state and can’t receive an answer that’s not a part of the previous experiences of our conditioning. The “active aspect” (masculine) of the mind can’t communicate (seed) with another active aspect, it has to have a passive mind (feminine) that can “conceive it” and where it can “rise up” within the imagination of the passive mind (unconscious) and reveal itself (begin unfolding) as a thought-form.

The subconscious is the receptive aspect of the lower material mind and serves to “draw in” and gives life to the active aspect of either the higher mind, or lower self-conscious mind of outer awareness on the same lower plane of the subconscious. By silencing the active material mind of conditioned thought, we render ourselves passive and receptive, and become a fluent receiver for higher consciousness to “seed and impregnate us” with an idea that will serve as an answer to our question or solve a problem. If we begin to use our conditioned mind to evaluate and alter the answer through our beliefs and emotional filters, then we stay stuck in the reality of the problem. This is what Einstein was referring to when he said “a problem can’t be solved with the same mind that created it”, and why all great thinkers and inventors get their ideas as a form of “vision” that comes to them out of the blue bringing new awareness and realizations.

Goal of Meditation

While many “use” meditation to achieve certain states or as a means of relaxing, once you get into a regular practice and begin connecting with your higher consciousness within the silence of your material mind, it produces a feeling of euphoria and you begin “falling in love” with your higher self. You form a deep desire for the connection and begin identifying with it as a normal way of being. Once the illusion of our conditioned state begins falling away along with the identity we formed through it, and we begin “looking through the eyes of higher consciousness”, we begin training ourselves to maintain a passive mind as a normal way of being in order to stay connected with our higher awareness. We become fully “present” in our everyday life while maintaining a sense of inner peace. Meditation becomes our normal way of being and we train our body to be the vehicle and instrument for higher consciousness to inhabit, be, and express through.

When this happens you give up the need to be right, you no longer argue to prove your point, all pain and suffering born out of the illusion and lack of forgiveness fade, you lose your desire for material gratification and status, and you begin seeking solace in the silence and natural beauty of things. You begin tuning into the miraculous nature of life, and feel compassion for all other living beings. Every act becomes an expression of kindness because you’re no longer invested in the illusion and need to judge others who are still consumed with the illusion of their own making. Once we no longer get our identity from our conditioning, we liberate ourselves from our own story and tendency to delude ourselves. We realize with extreme clarity that we are “in this world, but not of it”, and that “of ourselves we’re nothing”. All true power comes from our higher self. We’re not the product of our own story; we’re the creator of it. Our story of reality takes place both “within us” and “outside of us” through the medium of our mind as a projection through the time-space continuum.

Understanding the Psychological Basis of our Spiritual Quest

       One of the most fundamental truths that we need to honestly comprehend in order to learn how to consciously create our self and our life, is in realizing the true relationship between the mind and body. While there’s a fundamental misconception that the body somehow “gives rise to” the mind, partially due to the fact that there are three basic aspects of the mind and soul, one of which is oriented to what we call “body consciousness” as our subconscious, the fact is the mind is what produces and maintains the life of the body. The body, including the brain and heart, and all “matter” for that fact, is comprised of light (photons) that’s organized into a physical form producing a “house or temple” for the mind as the soul to inhabit and use in order to express, create, and evolve itself to higher and lower levels of consciousness. Matter as the body is passive and receptive in nature, and acts to draw in and bond with the energetic essence of the mind through resonance.

       The mind, like the soul (which is synonymous) isn’t a fixed form like the body it inhabits, but is a living, breathing field of energy that’s constantly evolving and reformulating itself by absorbing and integrating energy of a similar nature to it from the atmosphere around it and from parallel planes of both a higher and lower nature. The mind sets the vibratory frequency of the body, which acts as a tuner, receiver, transducer, and transmitter of energy as knowledge and ideas of various sorts. We’re designed to “receive knowledge” based on what quality as a state of mind we embody and become. We tune into and merge with planes of knowledge through resonance by becoming “like” the qualities as consciousness of that plane.

       Our state of mind is something that we have the ability to regulate and determine by learning how to use the different aspects of our mind to regulate other aspects. Our mind works “on itself” to produce the experience of itself as a whole reality. The subconscious of the body doesn’t have the ability to become self-aware and gain intuitive realizations about itself, then actively decide what state it’s going to produce in order to act as a conduit for specific and selected types of knowledge, but simply acts instead as a passive receiver and vehicle for the higher, conscious aspect of the mind. It will readily absorb, become one with, and actualize as a reality whatever “idea” is acting to “impregnate it”. This aspect of the mind acts as a womb for suggestion given to it by an active (willful) mind, and produces the reality of the suggestion as an “experience” of it. It creates the idea first as an inner representation or imaginary reality that then becomes the metaphorical template as an organizing mechanism for producing as an outer reality of the same nature.

      When we remain unaware of how we’re programming ourselves or allowing ourselves to be programmed by others, we create ourselves in a random and haphazard way, usually without any real awareness of what we’re doing and how we’re doing it. This is why this aspect of the mind is referred to as “unconscious”. It lacks awareness in the most basic sense of the idea, and most importantly and awareness of its true nature as a creative, self-determining being. This is the aspect of the mind we share with the animal kingdom that’s driven purely by instinct as emotionally motivated behavior born out of conditioning and whatever we’ve been “trained” to as children. When we live out of emotions and the imaginary dramas they produce, we use our creative power to create ourselves according to the will and illusions of others. As long as we remain unconscious of our own power to create, we live in a constant reactive state where we act to “absorb and assimilate” all the emotions of others being transmitted in near proximity of us without any resistance or apparent ability to redirect them.

The Relationship between Thought and Emotion

       All of life exists as a dynamic series of intimate relationships that work together to “create realities” as varying planes of existence unified into a coherent idea. Thought and emotions are complementary opposites that play off each other in order to produce an experience of reality as a coherent and cohesive idea. They both exist as a part of what we call the astral plane of formation, which, like all parallel planes operate through a form of hierarchy as an up and down, back and forth, in and out movement. In the astral plane (atmosphere of star (sun) light), which precedes the material plane and serves as a kind of spatial map for organizing the material matrix, we have upper and lower regions as a range of vibration. The upper can be viewed as thought which forms light into shapes and scenarios, and the lower is comprised of emotion which is the formative and motivational force of thought.

      Thought as “form” provides the empty shell as a kind of metaphor that spirit inhabits, and emotions determine the behaviors the thought-form takes on. When we’re oriented from the higher regions descending into the lower, thought is causal in nature and acts to naturally invoke its complementary emotion, using it to create in a precise and deliberate manner. When oriented from the lower region of emotion ascending upward, the emotion gives rise to and determines the nature of thoughts that are associated with it. One is always married to the other as a means of creating a singular experience of reality. When we allow emotions to dominate us, they control our thoughts and run our imagination, rendering our higher nature a servant to our lower, unconscious nature. When reversed, we control and determine our thoughts and regulate our emotional state, rendering it a servant to our higher, conscious, and creative nature.

       This is why cleansing ourselves of all negativity and purifying our mind and soul are a fundamental part of all spiritual and creative development. Whatever “state” we cultivate and maintain determines what plane of knowledge we tune ourselves to and experience as our perception of reality. A negative, lower vibration of pain and destruction (hate, anger, vindictiveness, jealousy, sadness, etc.) keeps us imprisoned in that reality, which we ourselves are acting to create. All qualities have whole planes of knowledge associated with them. Anger tunes us into the knowledge of that plane, where we act to propagate and multiply anger by creating consistent experiences that express and feed our anger.

       Whatever quality and emotional state we embody and allow to take hold within us (whether unconsciously or with awareness), we become in spirit (mind), and we “exist” on that level of reality while continuously acting “on ourselves” to produce more of those type of experiences. As we produce consistent types of experiences they become our memories and build up through an accumulative process, and become our soul’s constitution as the blueprint we use for creating ourselves and more realities of the same nature. We become the channel for expressing anger by becoming it in mind and body, condemning ourselves to a life of constant pain and suffering. When we do this to ourselves we live in our lower, unconscious, and unaware mind as we’re being created by others and our own reaction to imaginary illusions about ourselves and others.

      Anytime we’re reacting (emotionally) we’re lending our will to be created by whatever is causing the reaction, and creating ourselves “as” our lower nature. As we take on the emotions of others that act to awaken and feed those same emotions in us, we act on ourselves in an aware manner to tune our mind to produce realities that express the emotion and “give us more of it”. Whatever we become one with in mind and body we tune and bond ourselves too energetically. All “states of mind” are associated with spheres of knowledge that act naturally to produce the reality of that state. In order to change our reality and the nature of our experiences, we need to change our state of mind as a “quality of consciousness”. This requires self-awareness, consciously making new decisions, and using our will to discipline ourselves to a new way of being.

Observing our own Mind and Tendencies

         As human beings, we employ emotions as the means of creating without realizing the consequences we draw upon ourselves. Heaven and hell aren’t “places” in terms of how we tend to think about them; they’re “states of mind” as the reality we create out of that state. This is very easy to realize by simply observing the difference between your perception, how you feel, and how you interpret things to create your experience of them while in an angry or resentful state as opposed to an inspired or loving state. How we perceive and experience the same event or situation is completely different based on what mood we’re in at the time. Whatever mood you’re in determines what you focus on, think about, what memories run through your mind, how you see others, your attitude, and how you act.

       Emotions only exist in the lower planes of the unconscious as instinct designed to produce behaviors that are automatic and engaged in without awareness or the need to consciously evaluate them. They are projected and transmitted through the astral plane (atmosphere) as an energetic charge. They’re ‘infectious’ because we ‘absorb’ and take them on without directly realizing it and let them ‘run us’ by triggering memories that we use as a form of thematic template for forming our thoughts. As we unconsciously take on an emotion and form the inner reality of the emotion, we ‘tune ourselves’ energetically to the reality and actions of those emotions. Through our emotional states we become a predictable part of the ‘group mind’ which determines how we form our thoughts about ourselves and others as the reenactment of our “formative conditioning” as children and the ‘suggestions’ we’re constantly allowing into our mind that are given to us by others.

      Once we realize the true nature and purpose of emotions, we can resist taking them on while intentionally acting on ourselves to control and redirect our own thinking and cultivate a positive state and the reality instead. The most basic form of self-control comes from learning how to regulate our own emotional states. All “qualities” as a “way of being” have planes of knowledge associated to them that produce our perception of reality as the basis for creating our experiences. In order to access ‘higher planes’ of reality we must first act on ourselves to cultivate and consistently maintain an ‘exalted (virtuous) state’. In order to step into our divine nature as a self-aware creative being we have to become like the beings of that plane. We have to move out of a constant state of unconscious reaction to one where we’re conscious and proactive. We have to move from being unconsciously created by others to becoming consciously created by ourselves in an intentional and precise manner.

Vibratory Hierarchies as Perceptual Filters and Self-Organizing Processes

       States, planes, spheres, realms, worlds, kingdoms, and dimensions all exist in a hierarchical flow from higher to lower, and from lower to higher vibration. All vibration has patterns as informational structures that form and animate whole realities. Through the Law of Vibration, sympathetic induction (absorption), and coherence (integration to form a new vibration), a kind of filtering process takes place where different aspects of the same group of information are made passive and active (turned on and off), forming new combinations as an altered or modified configuration of the same thing (theme). The elements involved remain the same, but they’re arranged and reformulated to form a new version as a complementary pattern or living offspring. Everyone who is a part of the same event or situation experiences it in a unique way and tells a different account of it based on their state of mind at the time and what they noticed and emphasized and what they ignored and left out. We all take the same group of shared information and abstract only specific aspects that can be formed into the reality of our mental paradigm. We’re always taking what we can think of as a universal idea and re-organizing it to form a personalized version of the same basic nature.

        We can only move from ‘one plane to another’ (between planes) through resonance. By becoming of the same nature as the qualities (pattern of being) inherent in that plane, we’re spontaneously ‘absorbed’ into it as a form of energetic intake. When two frequencies are similar in nature and tuned to the same master key, they serve to activate each other where one enters into and blends with the other, influencing both to form an altered vibration through a form of synchronization. Once united as the same thing, the vibration of both is altered and they begin vibrating in harmony with each other as a new state. Lower levels can’t access higher levels directly because they’re not similar enough to each other, and therefore a medium is required as the equilibrating point between them that can act to absorb one, integrate and assimilate it to become close enough in proximity to the other that it can be drawn up into the lowest regions of the higher plane.

       All planes (dimensions) have a “range of vibration” as a graduation from lower regions of the same frequency to higher regions in the same way a musical scale of seven notes acts to form an octave as an accumulation or “whole scale”. The “accumulative affect” of the lower frequency (plane) in its higher range, becomes similar enough to the lower frequency of the next higher plane that it can be “drawn” into it. Our vibration as a frequency is produced by how we consistently create and accumulate experiences of a certain type that serve to form our memories, all of which are born out of our natural mental and emotional states.

      As we move from a lower vibration to a higher one a filtering process takes place as a kind of refinement. The destructive, negative, and delusional ideas of the lower, emotional and unconscious nature can’t naturally move into the reality of the higher, positive, and constructive plane of a fully awake and self-aware mind. As long as we remain unaware of our true creative power as conscious and divine beings, we condemn ourselves to the life of illusion created out of our emotional states. As long as our emotions run us and we use our will to create the reality of others through a reactive state, we keep ourselves confined to a mortal and unconscious existence as an intelligent animal that’s easy to train. We remain in the reality of pain and suffering that we’re acting on ourselves unknowingly to create.

Self-Enslavement

       We’re all enslaved by our own mind and how we’ve been trained to use it. When we cultivate and consistently live out of fear and anxiety of some kind, we act on ourselves to condemn ourselves to a life of constant fearful thoughts and suggestions that only serve to produce more experiences of fear and anxiety. It’s up to us to work on intentionally changing our own mental state. No one else can do it for us. We keep ourselves tuned to the reality of our feelings, emotions, and unconscious (habitual) thoughts. Just as our higher soul acts as the medium between higher forms of consciousness and lower forms of unconsciousness (instinct), our body-soul acts as the medium for absorbing and expressing the emotions and consciousness within the material plane through a form of horizontal movement between the inner and outer as our self and another.

       What we now think of as the Human race was originally created as the combination of higher and lower beings in order to produce slaves as a workforce. We were bred in an experimental way in order to produce a being intelligent enough to do the work, yet easy to control and give direction, with no philosophy of our own. When we’re “in” our lower, animal nature (which is primarily an unconscious state) we lack self-awareness in the most basic sense, and the higher capacities of reason. We often lack the confidence and executive faculties necessary to make decisions for ourselves and exercise our will in order to consciously create. There’s a complete lack of awareness as to our higher nature as divine, god-like beings, and we simply live out of whatever emotional states and dynamics we’ve been conditioned with and continue to act as a magnet for.

       We become a servant to the will of what we imagine to be higher, supreme and authoritative beings. We’re taught to worship other human beings of a higher and more conscious nature as “Gods”. While in our normal and somewhat unconscious state, we simply absorb the suggestions (thoughts) and emotions given to us through the projections of others, and allow them to take control of our will where we cooperatively create the reality they want us to. While in our lower nature we lack any real sense of purpose in realizing our own ability to consciously create ourselves. Whatever state we exist in determines what plane and type of reality we use our mind to create.
