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.

Learning how to Understand the Illusory Nature of Reality

Definition of reality: a thing that’s actually experienced or seen as a physical existence: A state or quality that exists or has substance.

The idea of “reality” is one that has eluded many throughout history because we’ve been taught to think of it as a solid, fixed, objective, and universal matrix, when in fact it’s actually a mental construct produced out of fluctuating light particles that are organized into what appears to us as a stable reality. While we can say that there’s an objective reality as the basic elements that make up Nature, the fact is every object is “reshaped” into a unique version of the same idea by the individual mind “perceiving it”. We can use many ways to try and define reality as a group consensus or shared idea, but the fact still remains that “perception is reality”, and all reality as we’re capable of knowing it is “subjective” in nature because it’s shaped in relationship with our own mind as a resonate frequency.

What we perceive as the natural world that we all share in common is structured as the result of the Earth’s resonate frequency. The Earth, like all heavenly bodies, is a conscious sentient being as a “living soul” that vibrates at a certain frequency. The entire natural world of the planet beats at this frequency like a cosmic heartbeat. This harmonic frequency exists as an electromagnetic spectrum ranging from 3Hz to 60Hz, with an average of 7.83Hz, producing a standing wave that makes it appear stationary. Every piece of matter (light as photons) resonates as a frequency or series of correlated frequencies that appears as both a wave and particle simultaneously. We are all technically speaking tuned energetically to the same wave-form as a unified field of information that makes up the Earth’s consciousness, and as a result, share in the same overall reality. This is commonly referred to in all spiritual traditions as the “original creation”.

The Energetic Nature of the Soul-Mind

Each individual soul-mind (lower soul) within the Earth’s electromagnetic spectrum consists of both a subconscious and self-conscious aspect, which are both a part of the universal collective unconscious of the planet. While many believe that the self-conscious aspect of the material mind is “conscious”, the fact is it’s birthed by the subconscious fully within the material body of Nature (as a mammal) and typically remains unconscious by being fully identified with the body and personality. The self-conscious mind (what most think of as the mind and self) is what “witnesses” the outer creation of the subconscious or planetary mind, while failing to realize that it’s their own creation, and imagines instead that it exists apart from them as something being created by an objective and neutral force that’s independent of them.

A wave-form is comprised of a range of vibratory frequencies that form a coherent spectrum as a field of information in its potential state as infinite possibilities for reality based on how the information is organized into coherent patterns. Every vibration has both a pattern as an idea and a “self-organizing” mechanism inherent in it. This self-assembling feature is what acts to organize information into specialized patterns. This means that it abstracts from the wave-form of the whole only the information that can be intelligently utilized to create the idea it’s imprinted with, and as a result, acts to create an altered version of the same basic idea. The mind of the individual, which resonates at a specialized frequency as its mental model formed out of its unconscious conditioning, enters into relationship with the collective consciousness of the Earth (including humanity), and deletes, abstracts, and distorts selected information into a new configuration as its perception.

Our mind-soul is an energetic field that interacts with all other energy fields around it, morphing them to take on the same appearance (thematic pattern) and likeness (qualities) as itself. The whole as a vast array of possibility is reshaped to resemble the individual. All information inherent in the whole is metaphorical (archetypal) in nature and lends itself to be shaped into infinite variations through a process of adaptation and modification. As we perceive something, we’re simultaneously interpreting it to mean something, and out of the meaning it has for us we create our “experience” of it. As we form our own experiences of reality as an individual creation, we identify with our own experiences and shape ourselves accordingly. The “I” of the self is a personification born out of the selected qualities of a universal whole (holographic principle).

The Principle of Vibration and Energy

The way vibration works is that any two substances that are “tuned” with the same tuning mechanism (frequency of the Earth), resonate with each other in a complementary fashion. One energy field (mind) acts to “enter into” and vibrate the same qualities it possesses and is actively expressing in another energy field of a similar nature. As they merge into each other they form an interference pattern (Dyad) that acts to change what’s active and passive in each one, forming a new variation of a complementary nature. The energy of one vibration is inducted into the energy of a complementary vibration (within the same spectrum), and both vibrations are altered by what’s amplified or canceled out through their union, producing a modified version of both as a new variation of shared qualities. As a new pattern is formed by how they combine, they slowly begin vibrating in harmony, producing a coherent frequency. As they begin vibrating in harmony with each other as a joint-reality, a foundation is established as a stabilized system for consistently producing shared experiences of the same nature.

The Holographic Principle of the Mind and DNA

This same principle of vibration, sympathetic induction, and coherence, operates and can be used to transform our genetic code, which is what forms both our physical body and outer reality to be of the same nature (pattern). DNA is composed of basically two complementary pairs of information, one from the mother and the other from the father, and through a process of natural selection, which can be visualized conceptually as switches, some are turned on and some turned off, to form a unique version as a new combination. Our DNA is an aspect of our subconscious mind and the information it contains as our genetic code  is formed into new configurations through our evolving perceptions. Our perceptions, which are formed out of our mental paradigms and belief system, are constantly changing through the incorporation of new information, which is simultaneously upgrading and programming our DNA.

DNA can be thought of as a form of bio-computer that runs programs of organized information that’s configured by our mind and interacts telepathically with the DNA in every other living system, all of which are composed of different combinations and degrees of the same overall information. Just as our perception alters the appearance of our outer reality while simultaneously evolving our physical existence to be harmonious with it, our DNA influences all other DNA in near proximity of us to take on the same qualities. Our genetic code is an intelligent system that’s shaped by the mind to structure reality in a complementary and harmonious fashion. As we consume and assimilate the DNA of other living animals who experience emotions, feelings, and some form of thought, we eventually take on the same qualities as an energetic modification of consciousness.

Once we understand how energy as the mind works to form reality as a corresponding vibration, we can realize that what we think of as an objective reality is fully formed as endless variations within the same electromagnetic spectrum. Just as the Earth’s consciousness as electromagnetic frequencies range somewhere between 3 – 60Hz, our brain forms correlating frequencies as what we commonly refer to as “brainwaves”. Our brainwaves are Delta (.2-4Hz), Theta (4-8Hz.), Alpha (8-12Hz), Beta (12-40Hz), and Gamma (40-60Hz), which all form as progressions of each other from an unconscious to a highly conscious state of cognition and information processing. The average resonance of the Earth’s frequency is 7.83 Hz, which is the state between sleep and awake, also called the hypnotic or trance state. This is the collective unconscious of all life as the subconscious aspect we all share in common as a joint reality. When locked within the illusion of material reality, we form our identity as a soul out of our material existence through a basic form of hypnosis as our formative conditioning.

In Quantum Physics we know that the “experimenter influences the outcome of the experiment”. This phenomenon doesn’t occur through the reason for the experiment (what’s being sought), how it’s set up, the expectations for an outcome, and what information is included or excluded through how the information gathered is interpreted, but from a purely unconscious state as the individual minds ability to influence the particles of light into new configurations through its very perception. All information exists as a wave of potential that’s “collapsed” around a single possibility as a form of natural selection by the mind observing it. All of what we call reality is subjective in nature formed by taking a universal theme and reorganizing it to match and be a product of our own mental paradigm as a variation or unique possibility. We can only “see” and therefore comprehend in any situation what can be produced and sustained by our own paradigm.

Summary

All reality as we’re capable of knowing it through our perception of it is subjective in nature. Five people who are all a part of the same outer event as a direct experience of it, will see it in a different way, interpret it to mean something different, and form a unique perception of it. The same person when asked to describe or explain it after the fact by recollecting the memory of it while in a different state of mind (out of context), will continue to alter it based on or as modified by their state. Reality comes as the unified pattern of a dynamic range of vibration as a frequency that forms an electromagnetic spectrum. Out of this spectrum as a wave-form or field of information, an infinite number of variations can be produced by the individual mind based on how it exists in relationship with the whole. As it resonates with the whole, it collapses the wave of infinite possibilities into one as its perception of it, producing the particle as a fixed idea.

All individual creation comes by taking a universal idea as a theme comprised of archetypes as living metaphors, and forming the information available into what becomes a personal creation that still holds true to and exists in harmony with the theme from which it was taken. All of reality as we know it works out of the holographic principle where the same information that’s contained within the whole is used to produce the part as a specialization that differentiates it in order to play a unique role and function within the whole. All perception of reality is produced by our mental paradigm as fractal patterns. All growth and development takes place by the principle of the Golden Ratio (Phi) where the accumulated memory of the most recent past combined with the present, forms the basis for the future as a progressive evolution of variables.

All individual growth comes as the production of new variables that are then absorbed back into the paradigm of the whole where they’re integrated, modifying it according to the nature of the variations, forming a new whole. As we learn from the lessons of our own life experiences, we evolve ourselves by way of our own creation based on what type of information available in the whole we choose to abstract, conceive of, and integrate as experience, then continue to evolve by how we consistently use it to produce more of the same type of perceptions of “reality”.

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

good and bad Light, which is often portrayed as “white” is in reality, invisible. What makes light visible as an illumination is an effect of the elements where photons (light particles) are either reflected off particles and form the colors they reflect, or photons are absorbed into matter and remain invisible, or unseen by the physical eyes. Without an atmosphere which is produced by light as heat absorbed by water which produces air, what we call “light” from the sun, isn’t light at all outside of a radiant glow around the sun itself. Space, which is filled with suns (light sources) is virtually dark. This is because there’s no matter to reflect light being omitted from numerous star systems. Without matter to separate light by absorbing some aspects of it while reflecting others, light as we know it wouldn’t exist, and we’d be in the dark seeing only the distant radiance of the stars and the reflected light of the moon (or any other celestial body). Light and dark, before they’re separated and used to contrast each other, exist as the “same thing.”   Because what we actually “see” in terms of colors – the vibratory rays inherent in light – is actually the aspect of light not being absorbed and thereby reflected, is actually showing us what it’s “not” in terms of vibratory frequency. A green plant for example, shows us what property of the spectrum exists outside of its vibratory range of absorption as resonance and sympathetic induction, and therefore fails to be absorbed as the energetic essence of the plant. We can know what rays the plant absorbs as the complementary colors of it outer reflection, and if the reflection is a complementary color itself, such as green (combination of two primary colors), we can measure the degree of absorption of the primaries it’s comprised of (in this case yellow and blue). Because of this dynamic interplay of opposites that are complementary (serve to stimulate and contrast each other), the material world as we know it through the vibratory schematic of colors and gradient shades is actually the opposite of its actual vibratory content and composition. We’re always seeing a mirror image of its energetic composition as it’s reflection of opposite properties.   This same idea works with inner vision and outer visions. Notice that if you stare at a green shape for a few seconds, then close your eyes, the same shape will form internally as red, the complementary opposite of green. This same effect will happen no matter what color you look at. The inner image produced in the dark is opposite in terms of color as the image seen in the light. Likewise, the colors that form inner visions and dream-like holographic images common in meditation are in the color of their actual frequency rather than a reflection which is not of their frequency. So light and dark, like all opposites that are actually complementary exist as one until separated (filtered) by matter of some sort. The light is invisible and appears dark without an object to both absorb and reflect certain aspects of light as the color spectrum, using the same unified substance to separate, contrast, and reflect other aspects giving it definition and distinct “knowable” properties. spacious The Physical World is a Mirror Image of the Spiritual World From a purely energetic perspective, the physical world is formed by a reflection of the energetic (spiritual) world, which illuminates it while giving it distinct characteristics. So to say that light (as reflected illumination) is “good” and dark (as absorbed energy of the same vibration) is “evil”, in the most basic sense is the opposite of the truth. Instead of reflecting a truth, these terms have come to be used as a metaphor for good and evil, which is usually more of a judgment than a fact, and is actually meant to express knowledge as wisdom (being able to see) as opposed to ignorance and profanity (as being in the dark unable to see). Good is seen as deeds that are benevolent and creative as opposed to their opposite as hostile and destructive. Yet we can only “know one” as it exists in relationship and direct contrast to the other. Opposite qualities are necessary for existence as separation of inherent aspects that brings definition through comparison which is necessary in order to “experience” them “as” something specific.   This basic principle of unified forces that exist in a basic state of polarity that come into existence only through separation and contrast necessary to create a reality based on their dual nature that clashes and opposes itself in everything else, is the very foundation of life that makes experience as a personal reality possible. In order to get a sense of ourselves “as” something specific – as good, beautiful, divine, courageous, or strong – we have to contrast ourselves with the opposite quality in others that form the relationship necessary to define each other. Without evil, we couldn’t know good. Without hot, cold wouldn’t be meaningful, it wouldn’t convey any information necessary to create an experience of cold, which only comes by how it relates to hot.   What we call God as consciousness Itself that forms the energetic basis out of which all of life arises in an infinite variety of shared qualities remixed, is the unification of both light and dark, good and bad as undivided and coherent. Electromagnetic fields that simultaneously move away from each other while attracting to each other, resolve by forming a spiraling motion that form the basis for the dynamic drama we call life, in all its diversity and infinite variety. We all have within us both active and passive qualities, ones that are active and being expressed, and ones that remain latent and in a purely potential state. Latent potential is only stimulated and called forth into activity by its complementary force in the outside world. These qualities have never been utilized because we haven’t had to use them in a live situation. We are both outward and electric, and inwardly centered and magnetic. earth rising Life – the Universal Drama Likewise, there’s always a debate or contest going on within us by contrasting aspects of ourselves seeking outward expression by the victory of dominance. In order to be “courageous”, we need life to set the stage as outer conditions and circumstances that first elicit fear and uncertainty where we have to choose to “be” courageous by how we respond and interact with it. We can either let the fear overcome us and coward in response to it, or we can rise to meet it and overcome it through sheer willpower of some form. The outer life sets the stage necessary to awaken and bring forth in us the qualities necessary to transform them by how we enter into relationship with them.   We are always drawn to, and drawing to us, the ideal circumstances that will allow us to express inner qualities necessary to rise to them and self-create by way of them. We only become strong by overcoming difficult challenges. In order to give love, we have find and connect with someone desiring and able to receive love. In order to experience ourselves as good, we have to confront and resist evil. Otherwise there’s no shaping mechanism that allows us through virtue of our own constitution and will to meet life by embodying qualities that give us the experiences as a “sense of ourselves” that shape our identity, “who” we are, and what type of story we naturally tell by how we live our life.   In this realization we appreciate the wholeness of life, all of which feeds on and is nourished by all other aspects that exist in a dynamic relationship that’s actually an optic illusion as a virtual reality. The only thing that’s good or bad, or that exists as “our truth” is whatever we say is true. Whatever is true for us. Absolute truth as law, which isn’t based on belief or personal opinion, and is consistent throughout all of life beyond our personal paradigm which shapes the world to be like us, embodies all aspects of itself necessary to live out the drama of life in a way that allows everyone to develop whatever qualities in themselves they have a natural propensity towards that only comes by way of encountering and interacting with it’s opposite qualities in everyone and everything else. portal Light as the visible world we call truth, is actually the opposite of truth as the vibratory nature of the physical forms themselves. While the form indicates function, the color represents the aspect of consciousness as a form of personality that animates it as behavior of some kind. The natural color as a quality of consciousness being illuminated or projected by the object isn’t the quality it possesses, but the quality it lacks. It’s the aspect of light that doesn’t fall within its vibratory range and can’t be absorbed. But we can know its real nature as it’s vibration by how the visible aspects exist in relationship to the invisible aspects as opposite and therefore complementary. This law governing colors as aspects of vibration inherent in light, only pertains to the natural world and not man made colors which are made with pigments that are made in an opposite manner of true light as the light spectrum.   The visible world, represented by “light”, or being illuminated and therefore seeable and knowable, is actually a projection as a false image rather than what reveals the true inner nature of the substance. Just as our inner nature is represented as the darkness created when we close our eyes, blocking out the light of the outer world, where our “shadow aspects” as qualities that we aren’t fully aware of are projected onto the outer world and others and reflected back to us, where we see aspects of ourselves in other people and react to them, usually while failing completely to realize that the traits we see in others that we form a strong reaction to (as resonance) are actually traits we have inside that we don’t fully own, or remain largely unaware of.   By realizing this reflective and absorbing quality of the inner with the outer, as seen and unseen aspects of ourselves, we can obtain knowledge of ourselves by realizing that the outer world is absorbing and reflecting back to us not their qualities, but rather our own qualities in them. Not by the behaviors they’re displaying, but by our reaction to their behaviors born out of our own interpretations as our perception of them. A reaction is absorption of energy stimulated by that same energy (frequency) in the outer world that enters into us (is absorbed by us) and produces a corresponding effect as an emotional reaction or body sensation. Emotions are what connect us to the same vibration in the outer world. Heart EM field By realizing that only energy as quality of consciousness that has emotions and behaviors in it, that are of the same nature as we are, can penetrate us and stimulate that same perception and behaviors in us as an emotional reaction, we can realize that anytime we’re reacting to somebody that they’re mirroring back to us our own qualities. In this way we can become aware of qualities that we possess that we remain unaware of through denial or repression of some form. Through awareness of what previously eluded us, we can begin consciously working to transform negative aspects of ourselves into positive ones. The very basis of all transformation as creation comes only by way of self-awareness that brings realization.   This reverse action as opposites of the same pattern (frequency) that act to stimulate each other calling forth the same idea in both people that then act out the same drama as a joint reality in which they play complementary roles, is the very basis of life itself as consciousness that only exists in the material plane through separation of dual aspects of the same nature (living pattern) as a relationship with itself in another. What we see in the material realm only shows us half the equation of what actually exists. By realizing that everything exists in relationship to itself in everything else, and that the outer trait acts to stimulate the opposite as an inner trait that’s a necessary part of a dynamic relationship that will serve to co-create a joint reality by playing opposite roles in the same idea as bringing an imagined inner idea into the world as an equivalent outer experience.   A pattern is a whole idea with many parts that all reflect and play roles in acting out that idea as a reality. This is how vibration as consciousness forms material realities as story lines formed out of shared themes that require someone else to play the opposite role in creating the same drama. Someone who believes people can’t be trusted and expects betrayal of some form, in order to live this belief out as a reality, has to attract a person who can’t be trusted and ultimately acts as the betrayer. Someone who sees themselves as a victim, naturally acts to attract someone who will victimize them. Someone who lives out of the theme of being abandoned, acts to naturally attract and enter into relationship with someone who will abandon them, usually while producing the behaviors that warrant being abandoned without full awareness that they are actually the ones causing their own abandonment. Whatever theme we live out of as a core belief, forms the story we are programmed to tell through the relationships we form and what kind of behavior we employ as our conditioning which trains us to that pattern as a behavioral dynamic. In this sense we are always attracting the right people to play the opposite role in whatever story we are ideally suited to tell by how we’re designed. This attraction of opposites that are complementary is the only way we can continue to tell our story as a consistent reality. It determines what type of people we’ll naturally enter into relationship with and what pattern will issue forth and be immediately established as the nature of our relationships.   We are always being provided with the means to see the true nature or unknown aspects of something or someone by how the outer characteristics and behaviors exist in relationship to the inner aspects. What people put out front for us to see, seldom represents who they really are. Whatever image someone creates of themselves, they will naturally act to attract anyone who contrasts or contradicts it. We sustain and support ourselves off of what we resist and contrast.   While the surface appearances of natural things do not reveal their true nature, they do provide us with the information we need to realize their inner nature by how it exists in relationship to their outer characteristics. By utilizing the law governing algebra, we can know the unknown aspects of any equation by how they naturally exist in relationship to the known aspects. Through the law of analogies and correspondences we can realize relationships through a dynamic chain of association that identifies the same nature or quality of consciousness as it exists in various outer forms. The outer appearance reveals to us the true inner nature as a correspondence . . . if we know how to look at it.   Dr. Linda Gadbois Transformational Coach Spiritual Sciences lgAbout the author: Dr. Linda is a Spiritual Scientist and scholar of Hermetic Sciences and Ancient Wisdom traditions.
