Forming a New Perspective, Personal Responsibility, and Developing Mental Fortitude

While many people are stressed out and engaging in the attitude of pointing fingers and blaming what’s happening on someone else, this world situation is in fact the culmination of our collective mindset as a whole. Instead of looking for someone else to blame, how about if we instead take an attitude of being responsible for our own destiny and what our responsibility is at a personal level of how we live our life. If people are falling apart and can’t handle the anxiety of what’s happening at the world level right now, they won’t stand a chance if things end up getting really bad. All of life exists for the purpose of allowing us to reap what we sow, and in doing so be able to perfect our ability to create. Life on Earth is a school for our soul where we learn the lessons our own self-created experiences have to teach us.

In times when we experience some of our greatest challenges, we’re also provided with the opportunity to develop our mental abilities to a new and higher level. It’s only when spiritual forces are “active within us” that we have the ability to work with them in order to transform ourselves to new and higher levels of self-awareness and mastery. The minute we feel as if we “know something” in terms of higher knowledge, we’re tested through a life experience that requires us to utilize it in the practical sense as a means of creating. It’s only through our ability to apply higher knowledge to create our experiences and how we handle ourselves in extreme situations that we truly “attain” knowledge. Real knowledge isn’t contained in the ideas themselves, but in the realizations that come from the experience of them as practice.

The only “belief” higher knowledge requires is a belief in our self in being able to utilize it as the means of growing and transforming ourselves by way of it. All actual knowledge comes as “knowledge of yourself” through realizations born out of your experiences. We only “know” what we can do and demonstrate naturally in how we’re being at any given moment. If extreme situations cause us to relapse and fall back into our usual way of thinking and acting, then we haven’t learned anything at all. Talk is easy and doesn’t require much from us in order to proclaim, whereas it’s our actions that truly define us while showing us in very clear terms who we really are.

If we look at what’s going on in the world right now as a phase or aspect of a much larger process, and we take our primary focus off the coronavirus itself, and look instead at what caused it in terms of worldly human activities, we can begin seeing all of the things that ultimately culminated to produce a global event. If we take an attitude of being willing, and perhaps even interested in not only listening to and considering opposing viewpoints, but seeking to actually understand them, it can broaden our perspective and provide us with new information on greater problems being denied by some sectors, while being passionately promoted by others. Most of our problems on both a personal and worldly level stem from constant forms of division, and the problem of division is not going to be solved by serving to create more division.

When we come together as a group, community, or society, and we choose to focus primarily on our differences, we set out to prove our point of view as being right by making others who disagree with us wrong, and of course that’s always a problem. Whenever we focus on what we imagine makes another person bad, wrong, or deficient somehow, allowing it to shape how we talk to and treat them, we actually act to “bring out those traits in them” and strengthen them through the nature of the interaction. If, however, we approach any situation by looking for what we have in common and what likes we share, and we work to connect and build our relationship through those, we create a sense of unity and teamwork that benefits everyone involved in the best possible way. Whatever qualities we work to keep in an active and expressive state, is what determines the type of reality that’s co-created as a group experience.

One of the most basic psychological facts that people can have a great deal of difficulty understanding is that “all” ideas are patterns that are called into existence through complementary opposites that oppose and thereby stimulate each other. Anything you actively “fight or argue against” you’re acting to antagonize and give life to by keeping it in an active and progressive state. When we refuse to see another person’s point of view on an idea, and consider it in a thoughtful manner in order to relate or recognize its validity, we steadily narrow our perception and become closed minded. We become pigeon-holed in our perspective and world view, and we close ourselves down to any new possibilities that might result from it.

The only way to “change a belief” is to introduce new information and way of seeing that undermines, contradicts, or disproves it. We seldom ever realize that the greater part of our outwardly perception is based on and formed out of our belief-system. Many people separate out beliefs as this belief or that one, imagining them to be independent of each other, when in fact beliefs, like the mind and reality itself, is an Eco-system that’s a part of a greater whole. Whatever our belief is about something is supported, validated, and confirmed in a congruent manner by our beliefs about everything. This is how they’re maintained, because they’re self-perpetuating, self-sustaining, and serve to prove and promote each other.

While many of us understand the idea of personal karma is, at least in the most basic sense of what it is and how it operates to create in our life, we can often fail to realize that personal karma is played out as groups, and is perfectly correlated with family, society, culture, race, and worldly karma. What’s now happening at the world level of humanity is allowing us to see what “our” karma is as a collective. While many profess “oneness” and post what seems like profound quotes around the idea that we’re all one in the essential sense of the idea, the moment pressure is applied and things appear to fall apart, they’re often the first ones to become defensive and lash out in anger and frustration, and begin neatly dividing people into sectors of “good guys” and “bad guys”, and then mercilessly engage in the stoning process. People can resemble rats in the sense that when a rat becomes overly stressed, it’ll begin chewing off its own leg. Being able to handle whatever stress and anxiety life brings is an essential practice in developing mental strength and fortitude. The weak minded begin falling by the way side pretty early on, and will probably need to be carried the whole way by someone stronger in order to survive.

If we step outside of this opinion or that opinion, and we look at the big picture from as many different perspectives as we can in order to understand it in a more in-depth manner, we can find the common ground in the global situation that’s similar for everyone. I’m not referring to the virus itself and the debate around whether or not it was man-made and intentionally set lose as an agenda of some kind, I’m referring to the effects it’s creating that are obvious to anyone paying attention, and how viruses originate to begin with. While many constantly argue as to whether or not humans are causing, or certainly speeding up global warming and climate change, due to the reduced human activity brought on by the virus, many parts of Nature are cleansing and healing from our toxic waste and selfish behaviors. This fact is self-evident throughout the world, and is not the result of someone’s opinion.

All viruses in the most basic sense, especially flu viruses, are contracted in humans due to consumption of infected animals. This virus, for example, is thought to have originated in bats, rodents, or reptiles, which are a natural part of the Chinese diet. We are currently in the process, as a worldwide practice that’s commonly accepted across the globe, of raising animals through an “industrialized process”. Industrialized food production mass produces animals through incredibly cruel and bizarre practices conducted in filthy diseased ridden conditions, as the means of meeting the “demands” of a grossly over-populated world whose primary diet is meat. Our Eco-system has been breaking down since the beginning of the “industrial age”, and is now on the verge of collapsing. People are currently dying in large numbers due to the diseases, illnesses, and multitude of cancers caused by the food we eat, consuming the flesh and blood of tortured, suffering, abused animals, while most people choose to completely ignore what’s going on. In many cases, even when they become aware of it, they’ll choose to keep doing it.

We’re all being saturated with dangerously high levels of electromagnetic fields of radiation and microwave energy, which is reshaping our neurology and molecular structure, while killing birds and insects by the millions, causing many to lose their ability to spatially navigate and migrate, yet only a few people are concerned enough about it to be actively doing something about it. We’re experiencing a worldwide surge in mass extinctions of both plants and animals while very few people seem to be paying attention, probably due to the fact that it’s not being shoved in our face by the media, or they simply don’t really care. We have passed the tipping point on using natural resources faster than they can replenish due to a grossly over-populated world of eager consumers, yet people are still having 3, 4, 5, or more kids while clinging to their constitutional rights to have kids. We’ve completely lost trust in our government and world leaders, and spend a great deal of time attacking, ridiculing, and belittling the very people trying to bear the burden of public gossip and hatred in order to try and remedy the problem for the very people attacking them.

The media has now become the greatest power in the world and has proven they can shape the reality and mindset of public opinion any way they deem necessary in order to serve their personal agendas. The people we see as culprits are often only puppets on the stage of life put there to distract us from what’s really going on right in front of us. There’s no more need to conduct business behind the scenes, it’s all taking place right out in the open while people are simply being trained to “not see it”. We’re literally being taught what to see and what not to by the media. People will usually support whatever idea circulating that allows them to maintain their beliefs and lifestyle, and will deny anything that will require them to make changes of some kind or have to give up something they considered valuable and enjoyable.

Honest citizens that come forth to try and make us aware of what’s really going on and the secret agendas playing out in a cover manner, are mercilessly persecuted by the very people they expose while the people they sought to free stand passively by in a dumbfound stupor, confused on what to “believe”. All without seeming to realize it’s not about “believing”, it’s about waking up to what’s going on right under your nose that you’re willingly participating in. People abandon those who serve to reveal the truth because in order to stand up for them they’d have to “give up” what they’re doing that’s participating in its creation. We all know what’s going on with all the surveillance and monitoring, we know everything we’re doing is being tracked and calculated, but we don’t want to give up use of the very devices that we’re paying for that’s allowing them to do it. The grand scheme is to produce the devices, fill them with little perks, charge a ridiculous amount for them along with an absorbent monthly fee so we can transcribe, record, and video tape ourselves for them.

The lesson to be learned from “martyrs” is that they’re never killed by the people they sought to expose, they’re ridiculed and discredited while on public display instead so that the very people they sought to enlighten are the ones that actually persecute them. They become scapegoats. You can’t depart knowledge to someone incapable of receiving it. There’s no such thing as trying to “wake someone up”, because all awakening only comes through the realizations born out of experience. The only responsibility any of us have in life is waking up ourselves. No one can do our work for us. It’s not someone else’s job to try and make us see what we refuse or are incapable of seeing. The process of awakening only comes through effort. It’s up to each one of us to save ourselves within our own life, and to save the life of the planet through the same activities. We can’t sit back waiting and expecting someone else to do it for us, we have to care enough to realize the changes we need to make and then decide with a sense of dedication to make those changes even when it means losing something we have come to value and depend on.

So the question that’s really at hand right now, is what it is you’re noticing about the world situation in its current state, and in what way are you acting to support it by participating in creating and sustaining it through your daily lifestyle? One of the most basic powers each one of us has at the world level is “consumerism”. Whatever we buy, we finance and make possible. These massive corporations only gain control and prosper because we’re buying what they’re selling. Whatever perverted practice a company is involved in as a means of producing a commodity, we also morally engage in the same practice by buying and utilizing that commodity. They only have power over us by working through our ignorance and lack of moral willpower. Select entities only gain control of the masses by appealing to their emotions and working through their weaknesses to cultivate dependency.

If we learn how to neutralize our emotions so we’re not affected by them and we work on ourselves to transform our weaknesses into strengths, we can no longer be controlled by the will of others. Sensationalizing and dramatizing ideas is a tactic that’s designed to stir emotions into activity while planting the idea you want them to continue developing in their imagination through the emotions. This is a very basic and extremely effective psychological tactic. All realities formed out of emotional states are illusions that become neurosis of some kind. All solutions to the global delusion being orchestrated right now will only come from the rational soul of higher consciousness. A problem can’t be solved by the same mind and perception that’s acting to create it.

Whatever we do on a personal level simultaneously affects the collective level, because we all share the same subconscious mind and destiny. The answer isn’t to go out and try to change the world or recruit people to your way of thinking and perceiving, it’s to form your own realizations from a sober mind that’s based on actual awareness around things, and make the necessary corrections to your own attitude and daily lifestyle. You have to cultivate your own consciousness through personal detachment and viewing things in as objective a manner as you can and use that mindset to direct all of your activities, regardless of what others are doing.

If you truly protest oil production, then reduce your use of petroleum products in as many areas of your life as possible, including plastics and pharmaceuticals, which are also petroleum based. Learn to walk your talk and practice what you preach. If you don’t like the severe animal abuse currently going on to provide “cheap food” for the masses, then raise your own, buy from local people where you can see the conditions they’re being raised in, or choose to quit eating meat altogether. If you’re against GMO’s and toxic chemicals being used to raise mass crops, learn how to grow your own food, buy only organic from trusted sources, or do business with your local farmers market. If you’re aware of the damage being caused by cell-phones and electromagnetic fields, reduce or eliminate as much activity using these devices as you can. If you’re truly aware of the fact that your  every move and conversation is being monitored, recorded, and tracked through the internet, go back to methods of living that don’t require or rely on these devices.

Whatever it is that you “see” as being the problem, regardless of what it is, be willing to make the changes necessary in your daily lifestyle to remedy it. Hypocrisy is a detrimental act that you’re spiritually responsible for. As a soul and spiritual being you are 100% responsible for what you create in your life through your actions. You can’t blame anyone else or think somehow that the solution to the world problem is someone else’s responsibility and not yours. You can no longer sit back scared waiting for someone else to do something about it. We have to cultivate the mindset of “being the change we want to see in the world”. Nothing changes until we change it.

Use this incredibly valuable wake-up call to become aware of everything that’s happening on a global level, instead of only focusing on what the media wants you to focus on. Comply as much as possible in order to deal intelligently with the virus itself, while also allowing yourself to realize what changes need to be made in terms of the bigger picture, and commit to making those changes personally. Everything in the world is only sustained through our willing participation in creating it. Every purchase you make is a statement about the kind of world you want to live in. Corporations can’t exist without faithful consumers.

Our soul’s destiny is determined by the consciousness we faithfully employ and consistently develop through our attitude and actions. What we “say” is meaningless if it’s not backed up in everything we do and stand for. Turn inward during this time of reduced activity and let the outer awareness correlate with your inner awareness, and let realizations about your self and what you’re acting to cooperate in co-creating through your daily activities, and commit to making the changes you deem necessary in order to align yourself with a higher ideal and more conscious way of living.

Learning to Understand the Nature of Life, Death and the Soul

     Death is still one of the greatest mysteries there are. Some people feel terrified at the mere thought of it because they have no idea what to expect or what will actually happen and “where they’ll go”. Whatever we imagine is largely due to our beliefs and what we’ve been conditioned to in terms of our faith. In order to gain a practical understanding of this idea, we’d also have to define what it is we’re referring to as “death”, because like all words and ideas, it means something different to everyone contemplating it, and if we approach it as a generalized idea, we can be on completely different pages and not even know it.

       What most people are referring to when they talk about dying is when the physical body stops working for some reason and we cease to exist as that body, personality, and identity. Most consider themselves to be the identity they form while in a body “as” the body. This identification with the body and personality is what’s commonly referred to as the ego, which is portrayed as being a fundamental form of “false identity” and makes us “mortal” because our “sense of self” is obtained purely through our physical existence, which also dies with the body.

      What we refer to as our “soul” however, is universal and eternal in nature because it consists of pure energy. We know for a fact scientifically that energy can’t be destroyed in terms of being killed or disappearing and no longer “existing”, but is merely transformed from one state to another. This means that it transcends the body at physical death and continues to exist in a parallel dimension that’s invisible to the physical senses, just as the mind and soul are when inhabiting the body. So the first thing we have to really get clear on is that the soul-mind is not the body itself, but what constructs and maintains and operates the body, giving it “life”. When the soul leaves the body it no longer has life, is no longer “held together” and animated, and begins the process of disintegration and returning to the raw elements that were used to form it.

Mind and Soul

       Many people continue to perceive in dualistic terms even when they embrace the idea of reality being a unification of multiple planes or states of existence that combine to form a singularity as what we call “reality”. We know for a fact, scientifically speaking, that energy (invisible forces of consciousness) and matter are different aspects or densities of the same thing and are interchangeable at the fundamental level. We know that all material bodies are accompanied by an energy field (field of organized information), while many fields of energy exist without a physical counterpart. We also know that a form of electromagnetic field (phantom) accompanies DNA and is what performs the task we call “natural selection” that determines what sequences are formed in order to construct the body giving it specific characteristics and traits, and serves to “activate and conduct” the process of regeneration and cellular formation that ultimately organizes and structures the body using a form of etheric blueprint (energetic body) as a means of spatial organization.

      What we refer to as the etheric body (in esoteric science) is what science now refers to as the “phantom effect”, and is what has traditionally been called the “Holy Ghost” of the trinity, which is a symbolic idea describing the 3-fold nature of the mind and soul. This etheric double is the essence of the soul formed out of accumulated and integrated memory that’s used to construct the physical house or temple of the soul, and remains within the material plane with the body at the time of death as a form of remnant that disintegrates in a more gradual manner than the body over a longer period of time. This “echo” or lingering memory of the soul is what we occasionally experience as ghosts or apparitions of departed souls. Whenever someone claims to be in contact with people who are deceased, they’re actually referring to this lingering consciousness and not the soul itself, which sheds it as a form of garment that’s soiled and worn out.

        Many can have a tendency to think of the mind and soul as different ideas, with the mind typically being attributed to the brain, heart, and body, and the soul some other mysterious force we’re not quite sure of. In reality however, the mind “is” the soul and is the means through which all material matter is constructed and used as a vehicle for the soul to self-express and create experiences of itself, and is what “operates” the body to form it as a unique individual. The mind and the soul are synonymous ideas and can be used interchangeably to describe different aspects as functions of the same thing.

       The mind and soul have what we call a 3-fold nature, which means there are three distinct parts that perform different functions in creating the same unified reality. On the higher planes of pure energy and essence the mind is unified or androgynous, as is reality itself, and becomes “dual” as polar opposites when descending into the lower plane of “experience”. This is because in order to create experiences of itself, it needs to create the illusion of an inner and outer, and a self and another that all appear to be separate from each other. It’s not only the physical body that’s organized, constructed, and used by the soul as the means of expressing, but the outer reality in which the body lives and is an integral part of. All reality as we’re capable of “knowing it” through our “perception” of it is formed as a mental construct or larger pattern that’s of the same nature as the body and is what serves to set the stage necessary for the soul to live out a certain type of story as the means of creating itself “through” the experiences of itself it provides.

      What we commonly refer to as the higher mind or soul exists on the plane “above” the lower plane and is the aspect that organizes and orchestrates the entire lower plane of physical reality in order to produce specialized types of experience. When descending into the lower plane to “be in” the reality of its creation as a direct experience of it, it divides into feminine and masculine aspects as what we call the subconscious and self-conscious mind, also referred to as the “material mind”. These two aspects of the material mind are complementary opposites that work together through a form of dynamic paradox to produce an inner and outer self as an inner and outer awareness that are intimate aspects of each other.

       Matter, the subconscious, and the lower soul (etheric double) are considered feminine in nature because they act as a form of passive receptor for the active, masculine aspect which serves to impregnate it with an idea as a form of “seed” that it then formulates and births as a corresponding physical reality. Matter is passive and lifeless in its fundamental state and only acts as a form of “empty shell” that’s magnetic in nature for consciousness to enter into through “sympathetic resonance”, and is used as the means of expressing and creating on the material plane. The only way the soul can transform itself to new and more diverse states as a vibratory frequency (pattern as a story and character) is through its ability to create new experiences of itself. Once it leaves or sheds a body, whatever nature and character it created of itself while in the body remains eternally the same on the energetic level. All growth and transformation of the soul only takes place while in a body through an experience of itself “as” specific qualities and characteristics (all of which it creates).

        The subconscious is the aspect of the self that’s “unconscious” in nature, which means it operates constantly within the material plane to organize it and operate it as a “living body”, as well as produce the phenomenon of what we perceive as the reality “out there” that creates the appearance as a form of “illusion” of being outside of and separate from us. This entire mental construct takes place without our direct awareness of how it’s all being produced. All reality is experienced as being both “in here” and “out there” as a dynamic living matrix produced as a mental construct by the soul at different levels simultaneously. All of this takes place without our direct awareness of it as our own creation.

       This paradoxical fact is self-evident through the realization that even though we all seem to share what we call an “objective reality” that’s fundamentally the same for everyone (we all share the same subconscious mind), we all form unique perspectives and perceptions of the same reality that allow us to experience it in unique ways. Ten people who are a part of the same event, when separated and asked to give an account of their experience of it will all tell a different story about what happened. This is because all experience of reality is subjective in nature and is produced as a mental construct out of our paradigm. All of what we call reality is actually only evident through our perception of it. We’re always taking what we can think of as a universal idea (archetype) and using it as the means of creating a unique and personalized version. On the material plane we’re a part of the “group mind” of consensus where we’re given an idea and taught what to think in order to be like everyone else, whereas on the higher plane of the soul, we’re individuals who always create in a unique way as a form of self-expression based on our vibratory frequency as our energetic constitution.

      When our soul becomes fully identified with our material body, and creates an illusion of itself as a specific personality and identity (we fashion our ego), it fears death because its annihilation of the ego. When the soul realizes its true origins as the creator of the body and material reality that it uses to experience itself, it maintains a detachment to the body and cultivates its proper identity as a universal creative being. The soul takes on three perspectives simultaneously as the means of experiencing itself – it’s in the first person as being “in the experience” or from the inside looking out and having an experience; in the second person that’s dissociated and “witnessing the experience” as if another person; and in the third person watching itself watch the experience from a higher perspective of the “whole story” being played out in this lifetime. These three aspects and different perspectives are always engaged in a form of dialogue with each other as thoughts, self-reflecting on thoughts, and self-guidance through a subtle awareness of the greater story of our life.

The Accumulation and Absorption of Life Memory

       The idea of what’s commonly called a “life review” as key memories that “flash before our eyes” as we’re dying is what we can think of as the soul absorbing the experiences obtained while in the body from a dual perspective of “cause and effect”. We review key memories that were of an emotionally intense nature where whatever we did that hurt or caused another pain and suffering, we experience from the receiving end. We become the “effect” of whatever it is we caused. When we shed our body, which is what “locates us at a specific point within the material plane” in order to form a specific perspective, we then take on our universal nature and experience everything in a holistic manner that’s no longer separate in terms of cause and effect, as both the giving and receiving end of our own actions (creations).

       Anything that we perceive as “doing to another”, we’re actually doing to ourselves through the same act, because there’s actually only one of us that’s appearing as two. We are held accountable for our own actions in the most direct sense of the idea. All of what we call “judgment” isn’t conducted by an outside force that acting to evaluate our deeds, but is something we experience from a holistic plane as what we could think of as a “whole and fully integrated pattern”. In this way we experience all aspects of our own creation by how we actively used our will to create our experiences in relationship with others, which is really a relationship we form with “unknown aspects of ourselves” that we perceive in others.

       In the ultimate sense of the idea there’s really no such thing as “another” that we experience as being apart from us and either doing something to us, or we’re doing something to them, and once we leave and transcend this plane of duality, we realize that what we perceive as being another was actually the embodiment of aspects of ourselves that we were unconscious of. At death of the body and transcendence back into wholeness, we realize through direct experience that there was really only one of us creating our own experience of ourselves as someone specific having a certain “type of experience” from a specific location in time. All memories obtained while in a dual state on the material plane, are returned to their holistic state as a complete pattern on the higher, universal plane, and form what we call karma as living different lives where we’re on the receiving end of our actions from a previous life.

The Death Experience

       While many look for answers as to what to “expect” when they die as a kind of generalization or regimented, dogmatic idea that’s similar for everyone, it’s actually the mind and soul that produces all of our experiences in life as well as in death. The mind stays fully intact at death of the body and continues creating its own experiences in what we call the afterlife, which simply means without a physical body. Whatever belief system we form and maintain in life as the means of creating our self through creating our experiences, is the same one that produces our experience of dying and transcending to a different plane. This is why nearly all spiritual traditions emphasize the importance of our “beliefs and faith”. Whatever ideas we form as beliefs form our mental construct and associations, and not only tune us energetically to correlating planes of existence, but also shape how we experience things.

      The fact of the mind and soul always creating in a unique and diverse fashion has a tendency to drive science and religion crazy, because they both look for consistency and repetition as the means of attempting to determine and validate truth from fiction. The group mind of the material plane that creates based on what we’ve been taught to believe is always working to try and conform us to the same idea that’s “labeled” true because it’s experienced equally by numerous people. The group mind is formed through various forms of conditioning as “suggestions” that are given to a person who then turns it into a reality. When we embody someone else’s idea about something, imagining it as real, and therefore accept it as true, forming a belief out of it, we act naturally to create the reality of that belief, making it real as an actual experience.

       We can read numerous books and listen to the accounts of others who are reported to have had a “near death experience”, all of which can seem somewhat correlated, while further investigation with an open mind will nearly always reveal many different accounts of the same basic event. What we realize is that everyone who takes up a general study and investigation into the death experience starts off with their own mental paradigm and belief system, which acts as a “filtering system” for what they’re open to (can readily see) and can logically accept as being real, and therefore include, and what they reject as false and therefore leave out. Some even take an attitude of forming a “streamline idea” of what happens out of a kind of “majority rules” type of mentality (group mind) where we only look at the accounts that agree with our preliminary beliefs, only considering those that at least somewhat agree with us as being “true”. After carefully filtering out and actively selecting only what agrees with our belief-system and what we deem possible, we form them into what we consider a generalized idea that we then view as the most “accurate account” of what is in reality a diverse and unique experience. Whenever we view what originates and takes place on a higher plane from the perspective and mindset of the lower plane of material reality, we’re always working from the mentality of the group mind (that lacks creativity) rather than the “individual” mind, which is self-creative.

      Many people are controlled by an intense need to be right or to have the most accurate idea about something that they then use as the means of proving others wrong who disagree with them. Very few people truly comprehend the fact that we create reality out of our values and beliefs and so we’re convinced that they’re true, and make them real as a result. When we believe in something, which means we can readily experience it as our perception of reality, we don’t consider anything that contradicts them or what would act to show us that they’re a belief and not an objective fact, because we “literally can’t see them”. One of the most basic paradoxes we all face is that in order to change our reality we have to change our perception of it which is formed by our beliefs, yet we often can’t conceive of anything outside of our beliefs, because “reality” is subjective in nature and formed “out of our beliefs”.

The Experience of Past Life Regression

       I naturally drew most of my ideas about death through my experiences with people who had died, and became a bit obsessed with the idea when my husband was violently killed at a rather young age. As I went through the experience with him and listened to what he was trying to express, a shift took place in my awareness, and when he actually died I could almost sense what was happening through a form of gestalt (intuition) that changed the course of my life and marked the beginning of an intense investigation into the nature of the soul and what actually happens when we die.

       After his death I bought and read every book I could find on the subject, which allowed me to begin touching on deep seated memories within my own soul. When I began my education and training in Clinical Hypnotherapy and began forming a radically new awareness around myself from a detached and more universal perspective, I realized in very direct terms that there was a part of me that was directing and instructing other parts of me as the means of producing my experience of myself and my perception of reality. Through this various forms of communication between what I sensed as different parts of my “self”, I realized that all of what I considered “guidance” from a form of “higher power” came as the result of a part of me that was helping another part of me to maneuver reality as a greater story being acted out from a higher plane of self-awareness.

      Through my educational experience in Clinical Hypnotherapy I came upon the hypnotic process of what we call “past life regression”, which I entered into with a very skeptical attitude because I was conflicted as to how I felt about it. In doing a bit of soul searching around the idea I realized my skepticism was really a foreboding feeling of deep seated fear, so I decided to step into it with an open mind to see what it was about. Having practiced hypnosis for quite some time I was very good at it and went into deep trance states easily where I experienced myself through my subconscious without the “editing factor” of my self-conscious mind. This is where there’s no decision involved as to what I accept or don’t accept, and everything comes instead as a direct experience of a heightened and intensely real nature. No actual thinking or storytelling is involved, just pure experience.

       For those of you who aren’t aware of the process involved, all regressions are set into motion as an inquiry about a current life situation that you want more information around. You set an intention that acts to “tune you” to the life where you willfully created the same type of pattern as a life theme. This intention as a form of wondering about something determines what past life you access and experience. One of the interesting things about this type of experience is that I seemed to be aware of experiencing the life both from “within it” (in a body) as a direct experience within the personality, and as “witnessing it” by observing it from a distance simultaneously. I had a kind of expanded awareness of both the inner and outer experience at once. As I was experiencing the drama of that life through impactful experiences as they unfolded, I was simultaneously aware of the larger story playing out as the theme of that life. I was aware that I was both the participant in an unknown drama that was unfolding moment by moment, and the creator, much like being the author of a book written by imagining the experience of it.

       As it went along I immediately became aware of how the same idea as a pattern was influencing my feelings and awareness in this life. Tendencies I was experiencing in this life that created a kind of inner conflict as a constant debate, I suddenly became completely aware of what they were about and how I acquired them. I also realized my attraction as well as extreme dislike for certain ideas and people that formed my intuition around things in this lifetime. It was like a massive opening of self-awareness took place that showed me things I didn’t even know to ask, because they only existed in me as feelings and impulses that had no explanation in reference to this life. All of the sudden everything seemed to make perfect sense, and I not only knew the reason, but what I needed to do in order to resolve it.

      At the end of every regression you go through the “death experience” while completely detached from any kind of physical pain. What I experienced each time only had a few similarities with the popular accounts. A couple of times I realized I was dying and formed whole experiences around it that were similar to what I experienced after I was already dead. At the time of death, I suddenly found myself outside of and above my body looking down at the whole scene and realized I was dead. As I realized I was dead, I felt a kind of grief around leaving my body as a form of love for it. Along with this realization came a deep and profound sense of what the “meaning” that life experience was about. As certain scenes passed through my mind I realized how they were all a part of a bigger story playing out without my awareness. I experienced it as a form of single experience that was a kind of theme born out of a predominant state of mind. The single events themselves were only significant in terms of how they were being played out as a much larger story. This larger story, which produced a certain type of experience, played out in several lifetimes in different ways, drawing different conclusions each time around the same type of experience from different perspectives.

         In a couple of transitions I watched my own funeral, which also created different realizations as a kind of summary. In other lifetimes, I transcended without watching it. Not once did I have the experience of going through a tunnel, but I did experience the sensation of rising up into the sky as if I was being drawn up and eventually vanishing. On a couple of occasions I had an intense experience around the “blue” of the sky as I then merged into it and disappeared from the reality I had lived in and was an active part of. On one occasion, I was what I referred to as being a “great storyteller ”, or Shaman, and as I was drawn up into the deep blue, I had the experience of turning into a white dove and flying away. All duality as an inner or outer perception disappeared and I felt at one with a benevolent force that I perceived as being my Higher Self. I recognized it as being the part of me that always remained outside of reality acting as a kind of Choreographer for orchestrating the drama of my life and intuitively guiding me along the way. I was no longer separate from “myself”. At that point nothing seemed to exist outside of me and I felt an expansion that was very euphoric and all resistance vanished. I felt like I was everywhere at once. I had no awareness of time and I completely filled space as space itself.

      Through the years having done many past life regressions with numerous people, they all experienced dying in different and unique ways, with only a few common denominators. What I seemed to realize is that just as our mind and soul create all of our experiences of what we perceive as physical reality in a universal, yet unique way, also acts to create our experience of transitioning to other planes and as being on other planes as a different mental state. The only ones that seemed to create what I call the “text book version” had read about the experiences of others which may have served to form a belief about what happens as a preconceived idea. Others interpreted their experience according to their religious or spiritual beliefs, and still others described experiencing what we would probably think of as hell.

       Those who fear death tend to create a fearful experience, whereas those who have come to terms with it tend to produce a pleasant or even beautiful experience. Our mind continues on after shedding the body and seems to continue creating the same “type of experiences”, regardless of “where” they’re at or what plane they gravitate into. In my experience, what we tend to refer to as “heaven or hell” are not places or planes as we tend to think about them in the material sense, but are “states of mind” out of which we produce matching realities.

        The sensation of moving through a tunnel and into another plane of reality seemed to be more about the experience of departing from the body itself. The soul itself doesn’t seem to be moving into another plane as an actual transition, but rather what’s acting to create that plane as an experience of itself. The only real difference seems to be that instead of experiencing it from within a particular body and point in time, it seemed to be “all there is”. The soul is the entire reality rather than a minute part of a greater reality. I didn’t experience myself as playing a role in a “group reality”, but rather as being the reality itself in all its aspects simultaneously. There’s no sense whatsoever of time and space.

        So when you ask yourself or others what death is like, allow yourself to notice what your beliefs are about it, and in realizing this, know that it’s going to greatly influence how you (soul) create your experience of dying. If you perceive yourself as being a bad person who deserves to be punished, you’re probably going to create the experience of being punished. If you believe someone you know comes to meet you, that’s more than likely what you’ll experience. If you have a belief in God as a human-like figure or Jesus, that’s how you’ll interpret the events as the means of creating your experience. On the higher planes of the mind, soul, and spirit, we’re creative beings with the ability to choose and willfully produce whatever experience our paradigm (organized memory) naturally acts to create. In the invisible realm of pure spirit we blend back into wholeness where we realize we’re our only creator.

The True Nature of the Soul’s DNA and Bloodline as Evolutionary Self-Design

       Unfortunately so many of us have been virtually detached from our true origins as spiritual beings and taught to think of life from a purely material and very limited perspective, and so we don’t realize the true nature of our own genetic makeup. Many believe our genes only determine our physical characteristics and what type of predisposition for illness and disease we’re prone to, and that our genetic sequencing is set in stone, and immutable as a result. But of course we now know scientifically that this isn’t the case at all, and that the 90 – 98% of our genetic code that we used to think was “junk”, which simply means we had no idea of what it was being used for, is actually a form of bio-quantum-computer that stores “all” memory of our perceptions created by our soul as self-produced experiences.

      If we look closely at things while keeping in mind the most basic universal law of all, the “parental law of the Triad”, we know that all of life as we know it exists as “combinations” of complementary opposites that together produce a unique version as their offspring. Our DNA, like the soul itself, acts as a “medium” between the energetic and material realm of consciousness that orders and constructs the body, and is comprised of both etheric and material components as the soul entering into relationship with the bloodline of its own creation. Our DNA contains the genetic memory of our ancestors as not only physical attributes, but also their “experiences” and the dynamics their consciousness acts naturally to produce that becomes an inherent part of our psychological makeup and forms the “mental model” out of which we perceive and create more life experiences of a similar nature.

       Our soul is attracted to (resonates with) the bloodline as the genetic predisposition of the same type of ancestral memory that’s “complementary” to it in nature. The memories and behavioral dynamics inherent in the family unit (genes) set the foundation as the formative conditioning necessary for the soul to create more experiences of itself that are of the same nature as the basis for continuing its conscious evolution through time. DNA is programmed with memory that’s produced as unique combinations of qualities and traits from both parents to form a new variation of both. By way of the same principle, the soul, which is comprised of memory, forms union with DNA through sympathetic resonance (induction) as containing memory of the same nature and type, and together form a new variation of similar, yet unique perceptions that it uses to diversify and evolve itself.

      The soul is formed originally through a genetic bloodline (birthed into physical existence) that it becomes one with energetically and uses as the basis for creating itself through the perceptions and emotional states it forms, which become the means for interpreting life events in order to experience itself through and as them. It participates in creating and initiating the memory that’s infused in the genes themselves, and is not only an essential part of the bloodline, but makes up what we refer to at a future point as the “ancestral memory” inherent in the genes themselves. This is part of the reason people feel confused as to the difference between ancestral memory and the souls personal memory, because they’re the same thing produced by the soul at different points in time as an evolutionary process of growth and development through different times, personalities, cultures, conditions, and life circumstances.

 Memory – Universal and Personal

       Confusion tends to be further compounded by the fact that we often don’t really understand what memory is, how it’s produced, and how it’s integrated and stored. The entire physical world and everything in it doesn’t exists as a fixed idea that’s common to everyone, as we have a tendency to think, but comes as a rich and dynamic form of metaphor. Ideas exist as a form of “universal theme” that’s drawn into the mind of the individual and transformed in the imagination to produce a unique and personalized version of the idea as the means of creating with it. Once the idea is modified to create as a specific object, being, or situation, it forms what becomes our soul’s memory as a “person” located within a specific point in time, with a specific personality and identity. Once a personalized version of a universal idea is created as an “experience”, it’s then transformed back into its universal status as a metaphor by the soul (which is universal in nature). In this way all memory produced by the soul of itself while in physical form can easily be applied to create in any number of personalities, locations, and circumstances to create endless variations of the same kind of idea.

      For example, the love of a dog, while expressed and experienced with that specific one while in a specific point in time, is absorbed by the soul as a memory that becomes applied to a love for dogs in general, producing an intimate connection with dogs in general. The memory isn’t retained in its personalized form, but in its universal form, which is metaphorical in nature as a feeling we have towards dogs that creates what we call a “predisposition and tendency”. As the soul evolves through new bodies and personalities, it continues to feel a connection with dogs, and maybe even have favorite breeds that it feels a more pronounced connection to as a vague sense of previous relationships.

       The soul is not specific to the personality of a particular body, but is developed in a way where it expresses in a similar way through a whole series of bodies and personalities through “shared memory”. Memory is not produced and stored as a whole bunch of single memories that seem somehow independent of each other, but as a unified structure that forms our “mental paradigm”. As we create our experiences, they’re naturally integrated into our mental model. All experiences are produced by our paradigm as our perceptual lens and filtering system used as the means of interpreting all the events of our life to give them a similar meaning. The meaning we give things is the unifying factor as a universal theme that shapes our experience of reality. As we produce and then integrate new types of experience as a means of diversifying, we modify and upgrade our paradigm to form a singularity.

       Every aspect of our mental paradigm is congruent with all other aspects and act together to naturally support and validate each other to form a larger whole as a consistent version of reality. Through this same principle the DNA of our body is constantly being upgraded and evolved through our soul’s consciousness. Our soul’s memory is constantly being produced by our paradigm as a fully integrated series of dynamic experiences that are all self-produced and vary to some degree as the means of incorporating new information necessary to evolve our paradigm in different ways by forming new combinations as a new relationship with our “self” in everything else.

The Relationship between the Etheric and Material

       DNA, which helps makeup the very cells of our body, is a combination of etheric and physical, crystalline-like substance that acts as a tuner, receiver, and transducer for intelligence of various sorts. Its etheric nature is what absorbs, integrates, and mutates to produce new forms of physical expression and manifestations. The etheric body is what forms the energetic matrix used to order, organize, and hold together the body as a “grid of energetic stresses”. This is demonstrated in DNA as what they now call the “phantom effect”, which is an electromagnetic, morphogenetic field of energy that emanates from the DNA and acts to “inform and organize” the energy around it into the same pattern. The etheric body as the invisible field of organized information that accompanies and determines physical form is what we refer to as the mind or soul, and not only acts to structure the body out of memory, but also the entire space surrounding the body. Our mind forms our perception of everything around us as well as our internal perception of our “self”, to form a singularity of complementary opposites.

       Our DNA, which acts as the medium between the energetic and material, is constantly being programmed and transformed by everything around it that’s of the same frequency or pattern through the faculty of the subconscious. While we tend to view the visible and invisible as separate things, the fact is the invisible field of organized intelligence is what acts to magnetize, organize, hold together, and animate the visible, material component. The soul as the etheric body provides the energetic blueprint for constructing the body, and is simply of a different “density” than the body. The soul orders and organizes the body through “natural selection” (resonance) of DNA sequencing to produce a unique combination of a shared genetic makeup that’s a form of “conscious design” that makes the body an ideal vessel for the soul to inhabit and use to express through.

       In the ultimate sense, all of life exists as vibrations that organize “essence” as astral (star) light into biological life-forms that act as a vehicle for an infinite number of different levels, classes, and types of consciousness to use in order to create through and use as the means for evolving itself to greater levels of complexity. The light essence itself has no consciousness or life of its own outside of the soul that it’s an extension of. Our DNA and genetic makeup is infused with a certain type of memory as consciousness that acts to tune it to a certain frequency where it resonates with that same type of consciousness all around it, attracting, absorbing, and integrating it, and modifying its frequency (consciousness) as a result.

       The Etheric body is an invisible, fluid-like crystalline substance that evolves the consciousness of the body to be of the same nature as the soul. As the soul evolves itself by creating its own experiences, it simultaneously acts to evolve the memory programmed in the DNA itself as a family bloodline to be of the same consciousness. All of our offspring comes as a soul-group based on shared memory that forms the physical constitution to be an ideal vehicle for the soul to use in order to continue its evolutionary process of self-creation. Whatever energy we act to absorb and integrate through our perceptions influences our DNA into new relationships that alter it through constant regeneration of the body.

       Our soul, like energy itself, doesn’t use material pathways as starting from one point and ending at another one, but absorbs the same “signal” in every single cell of the body simultaneously. The cells of our body, while they may seem separate from one another, are actually produced from a single cell and genetic code that undergoes a constant process of specialization and regeneration. Our body’s initial formation, which is orchestrated by the soul as its regeneration into physical form, simply sets the basis for the soul to continue evolving it through the same act of evolving itself through new types of experiences. The same genetic information is constantly undergoing a form of evolution through the integration of new and diverse forms of experience produced by the soul as a means of “creating itself”. Memory doesn’t exist as a fixed form that never changes, but evolves through different levels of diverse complexity by how the soul expresses itself while in a physical form.

       This process of differentiation and specialization comes by turning off some parts of the same information as “pairs”, while turning other ones on to form new sequences that construct and operate as different parts of a singular whole. This is the same principle that the soul operates through as the means of creating itself through its own unique perceptions of what appears to be a greater whole of society and humanity. We have perceptual filters that only “see and use” certain parts of information that are inherent in the greater whole (outer reality) as a means of producing personalized patterns that function within the whole in a congruent and natural way. We’re all formed by the same “universal genetic code” that exists in all of Nature as the means of creating what we experience as a joint reality. We take a universal concept as the Earth’s soul and adapt and modify it to our individual soul in order to produce a unique version of the same overall idea.   

       So while we perceive ourselves as being different from everyone else, we’re actually all a part of the same universal nature or archetypes, formed into unique combinations through our soul’s will. While we all formed initially through the collective memory of the subconscious and genetic code of the earth plane, we grow and evolve ourselves in unique ways by what we resonate with and act to naturally absorb, integrate, and use to evolve ourselves to more complex forms of self-expression. The soul has the ability to self-create through self-realization, making new choices based on realizations, and willfully acting to create by breaking habitual patterns. As we employ new ways of being through active use of our will, we tune into new types of consciousness and cultivate ourselves by absorbing and integrating them. As we embody and express new ways of being, our perception of ourselves and everything else changes as a correlation.

       We only change the world by first acting on ourselves intentionally to change our inner world. As we change our inner self or mind, we not only produce new experiences and memories within our soul, but also act to evolve our own DNA, which is ultimately the same thing. As we evolve our DNA through new perceptions and the experiences they produce that become memory, we influence the genes of our entire bloodline as well as that of humanity as a whole. In this way the individual consciousness that undergoes transformation through self-awareness and utilizing its will to create, serves to evolve entire strains of genes and effects humanity as a whole. As we consciously evolve ourselves to higher and more diverse forms of consciousness, we simultaneously evolve our entire species through the memory created.

       Memory, which is purely a product of the relationship between the subconscious and self-conscious mind as the etheric body, is imprinted on the astral plane of the earth’s soul (outer atmosphere) where it’s available to be tuned into and absorbed by other minds of a similar nature. The group mind of the material plane usually doesn’t realize or intentionally utilize its ability to “draw down” consciousness from higher planes, and only acts to receive thought-forms of the material plane that have been formed by others. Because of this natural tendency it’s only a small handful of the most conscious souls that act to propagate the astral plane of the collective unconscious with new ideas that can be employed by those capable of acting as a receiver for them to use as the means of evolving themselves in the same manner.

       Whatever level and degree of consciousness we cultivate ourselves to, which in turn acts to alter our perception of the world, is constantly being transmitted throughout the earth’s plane where it’s picked up and received by others unconsciously as feelings and thoughts that come to them out of the blue (sky as atmosphere). As these thoughts pop into their mind out of thin air, they’re perceived as being their own thoughts, and they’re developed in a unique way by the individual when they continue to think about them. As an idea comes to us (we conceive it) and we concentrate on it by continuing to think about it (gestation), we adapt it to our paradigm, modifying it, and form it as a unique variation of the same idea. It becomes our offspring as a new combination formed by blending the idea with our existing ideas of the same nature.

       Our soul incarnates into a physical body whose genes and ancestral memory is comparable to ours (maybe even produced by us), and can readily be organized to produce specific traits and tendencies. This forms the basis for what we call karma as the continuation of past life experiences in a new body. Our mental paradigm as our soul’s essence that forms our inner nature as our personality sets the basis for a continued process of self-creation by expressing the same “issues and tendencies” to produce more of the same type of drama as our life experiences. As we wake-up and realize our true nature as a soul and our ability to create ourselves by how we use our mind to create our experiences, we begin acting on ourselves through awareness to grow and evolve ourselves to new and more diverse forms of expression.

       Our subconscious mind, which is equivalent to our DNA, both of which operate out of memory and by absorbing and integrating whatever consciousness it exists in relationship with, is the “means” through which we grow and evolve not only our own soul, but the group soul of humanity. All our experiences are formed naturally and automatically out of memory of some form, and our mental paradigm as our mind’s structure is also formed out of memory that’s integrated into a singular memory as a metaphorical theme. When we don’t realize our true ability to create ourselves in whatever manner we choose by how we create our internal experiences of ourselves, we often create in a haphazard manner by dwelling in the past as the means of creating in the present. When this happens we simply live out of karma and continue to create more of the same type of experiences over and over, without ever becoming aware of it.

      We can decide to be present, detach from the past and intentionally choose how we’re going to be in order to experience ourselves in new and more progressive ways. When we use our creative abilities to simply repeat the same experiences of the past, we fail to evolve in the most basic sense of the idea. Those who awaken and utilize their creative abilities, act to not only evolve their own soul, subconscious, and gene pool, but also act to propagate the astral field of the Earth’s plane with new memories as possibilities for creating that evolve whole sectors of humanity through the same activity. The soul and what we call reality are merely extensions of each other as a singularity.

       Once we fully grasp the significance and importance of this idea, we can begin appreciating the fact that the entire human race was created by combining different forms of DNA to produce a hybrid of a multiple and diverse nature. It sheds light on the true nature of our subconscious, self-conscious, and higher consciousness as being different aspects of our nature that contain different types of memory, all of which are complementary in nature. We can realize that in order to “wake-up” and become fully conscious is to “remember who we are”. It’s to actively choose to remember our higher nature and the true creative power we have in detaching from the group mind of the collective unconscious and begin deciding for ourselves who we’re going to be, and acting “on ourselves” to embody new qualities that serve to transform us to new and higher ways of being as a unique individual of our own making.

      Through self-realization we can resist the tendency to absorb and become a vessel for expressing the consciousness all around us as the group soul of humanity that ties us into its destiny as an unconscious being created by the will of others and as a replay of ancestral memory and family dynamics. We can choose to consciously tune ourselves instead to the memory of our higher nature as divine beings of a sovereign soul capable of leading the unconscious souls of the world by propagating the astral field with new memories as diverse ways of being that they draw on as a means of creating themselves to be like others and as a continued product of their past.

The Nature of the Subconscious – The Unified Mind of the Material Plane

We often hear sayings about “oneness” and everything being one, living in unity with Nature and each other, and so on, yet this idea seems to contradict the nature of our actual experience as our perception of the outer world and others. One of the most prevalent principles that’s always operating at the fundamental level of creation, is the Law of Paradox. In just about all of the occult sciences what we refer to as “reality” is called an “illusion”, yet this idea is also confusing because we don’t know for sure what that means. Confusion usually comes from the fact that most don’t have a true understanding of the nature of their own “mind” and how it acts to organize, form, and animate the entire material world as a form of dynamic mental construct or living matrix. This is a very important principle to grasp with a deep sense of understanding that will not only transform the way you look at the world, but will serve as a fundamental key that connects everything else in a way that makes total sense from an intuitive perspective.

The most basic principle that precedes all others and acts as the means for birthing all others by laying the foundation out of which they spontaneously unfold, is the “trinity”. The trinity, also called the Triad, represents the triune, threefold nature of the mind and soul. The idea of the mind and soul are synonymous and both refer to the invisible aspect of our being out of which material reality emerges as its offspring. The mind is an aspect of the soul and can be thought of as the “organizing mechanism” or electromagnetic field that produces an etheric-material form out of the blueprint of cosmic memory. The soul is comprised of a dynamic living matrix of memory that’s cohesive and is used to produce a consistent experience of reality as a relationship between all seemingly different aspects that form its constitution. As the soul moves from one plane of density to another, it propagates by dividing or halving as a means of self-generation (mitosis). All parts contain the essence as information of the whole in its potential state (holographic principle), and serve to birth it systematically on the lower plane as a growth and development process of self-expression. The higher planes contain the lower planes in their entirety and act to oversee and orchestrate them. This produces what seems like a unified reality that’s “experienced” through the fundamental principle of Polarity (Dyad).

The higher soul-mind projects into the lower plane of self-awareness through the regenerative process of propagation. As the higher soul divides in order to inhabit the lower plane, it’s birthed into the body in a unified state where the subconscious contains “within it” the seeded potential of the self-conscious aspect of the same mind, which the subconscious then births through a gradual growth process as a kind of awakening of the self within the material body. This self-aware aspect of the subconscious forms what we commonly call the consciousness that appears to arise from the brain.  Brain consciousness is what allows us to perceive and experience ourselves exclusively from within and “as” a body, and as a result, we come to identify almost exclusively with our material existence. This forms what has typically been referred to (inappropriately) as the “ego”, with the idea of the ego and identity also being synonymous, which means we get our “sense of self” through experiences created as a “personality” within a specific location, conditions, and set of circumstances within the material world.

       The subconscious mind can be thought of as the feminine aspect that’s born into the world pregnant with the masculine aspect of the self-conscious (self-aware) mind. The subconscious, containing the self-conscious aspect in its “potential” state, grows and evolves it through a process of adaptation that modifies it according to its genetic make-up, life conditions, specific circumstances, family and environmental situation, which all combine to form a unique variation of the same essential nature (soul). Much like the four seasons, we’re born into the world exclusively in our subconscious, which is group oriented and perceives itself as being an essential part of its family unit, and develops completely out of an unconscious state until around 7 years old, where the self-conscious begins gradually emerging as self-awareness that perceives itself as an individual apart from its parents and siblings, and comes into a fully active state at around 13 or 14 (puberty). Puberty is the age when we begin thinking and making decisions for ourselves and developing our identity as an image of ourselves attained through experimenting with different ways of being. Our self-conscious mind of outer awareness becomes our dominate state at around the age of 21. As a fully mature adult, around the age of 28 (growth takes place in 7 year cycles) we are operating and functioning almost exclusively out of our masculine, body-aware consciousness, and often lose all true awareness of our subconscious.

The subconscious is the same aspect of the mind we share with all of Nature which operates almost exclusively out of instinct. Instinct exists as a “field of information” that’s organized through a process of classification where each species is only able to access what’s meaningful for their growth, learning, and survival.  This field of organized information that’s shared by all life on the planet is what was used to construct what’s referred to as the first or “original creation”. It forms the objective reality we all share in common and play a dynamic role in. This shared reality formed by the “group mind” of the “collective unconscious” lays the foundation as the basis for us as humans, bestowed with the ability to create using our mind, to continue creating out of by producing unique and personalized versions of reality through our very “perception” of it.Our mind is shaped out of attributes and memories that form our “mental paradigm” which is  used as a kind of filtering system that sorts and organizing information into unique variations through our very perception of it. Every person has a unique collection of memories that form their mental model, and we can only “see” in an situation what “matches” our model.  

All of us start off by being conditioned to the reality of the group mind being acted out on different levels through our family, society, and the world, all of which form a dynamic series of correspondences to each other as what we can think of as smaller fields nested within greater fields of the same nature. As our self-conscious mind comes into active expression and we begin thinking and creating ourselves to be a unique individual, we form new perceptions of the same outer reality that causes us to experience it in new ways. The material forms themselves don’t change, but rather how they “appear to us” changes. What we notice and include, and what we ignore and exclude, begins forming new ideas about the same thing that changes how we experience them. As we experience the world around us in new ways, we simultaneously begin experiencing ourselves in new ways, which works to begin transforming us based on how we build our identity around whatever it is we associate with. As adults, everyone looking at the same thing or that’s a part of the same event, will see and experience it in a way that’s unique to them as their own creation. We’re always taking what exists as a universal theme and general idea and using it as the means to create a personalized version that’s unique to us.

        A fundamental paradox exists as polarity between higher and lower planes where they mirror each other as complementary opposites. In the lower planes, the “group mind” exists as a species where an entire group of individuals are of the same mind or programming, and act as a unified whole through habitual behaviors. The only thing that makes them different or distinguishes one from another, outside of slight genetic differences that alter their similar appearance, is their personality. They possess no actual creative ability in terms of choice and will, and don’t have a sense of self-awareness. In higher planes the opposite is true. The group mind of the Macrocosm is comprised of archetypes in their potential, unformed state which can be used willfully to self-create as a unique individual that’s apart from the group mind. The object here is to use your higher capacities to create yourself in a very deliberate and intentional manner by intentionally choosing which qualities you want to develop in yourself, then, embodying them and bringing them into expression “as” a natural part of you. With our higher capacities we can reason, evaluate and judge, and make decisions about who we want to be, then act out our decisions in an disciplined manner through willpower.

Our true ancestors, represented in history as the realm of the “gods” is a society of highly specialized and uniquely talented individuals who, because they’re self-contained sovereign beings with a universal identity that’s not determined by a single personality or governed by society of the lower group mind, act in a harmonious and cooperative manner to create on a larger scale. When you’re not dependent on someone or something outside of yourself to tell you who you are through the relationship you form with them, there’s no need or desire to “take” or “acquire” what’s not already within you. For this reason, beings of higher consciousness are highly unique as individuals and almost completely self-contained and autonomous, unaffected by the drama being played out on the lower planes. From a higher perspective of complete detachment from the passions and delusions of the lower planes, one can easily impose an influence on the group mind by interacting in a way that serves the higher good of everyone involved. As long as we have a “need” for someone else to be and act a certain way, we’re being controlled and therefore “determined” by them. Once we can be apart of any situation without needing anything from it or needing to somehow control it, we experience ourselves as we really are on the higher plane of divine consciousness.

Energetic Model of the Mind

A vibration results from a “mental construct” that electrifies, animates, and organizes matter (as light-essence) into distinct patterns. We say that every “thing” moves and vibrates at a certain rate producing a natural phenomenon we perceive as reality, yet things are originally produced by the mind itself through a mental construct as thought. The mind itself is what first acts to organize light into material form in the mind’s eye of the imagination as an “internal representation” of an idea. As we think we turn ideas into internal realities. Our thoughts come as words we speak to ourselves internally where we shape Astral Light into the reality inherent in the “meaning” of the words. Once an idea is shaped into an imaginary form with sensory detail, it’s magnetize with our own vitality, causing it to begin vibrating at the frequency associated with the form, and it “draws in” (acts as a magnet) cosmic forces of the same vibratory frequency, causing it to ultimately take on a life of its own. Once an electromagnetic field (etheric blueprint) is created of an idea as a mental construct, it acts to organize the outer reality to match the inner representation. We use the thematic, symbolic inner idea as a holographic pattern to orchestrate the events of our life and how things appear to us through our perception of them. Our mind is literally a lens that we look through that determines what we see and don’t see.

In the higher regions of consciousness, ideas exist as archetypal themes that have names. When these names are spoken internally as thought, they form internal images of the ideas as they’re conformed through the mental paradigm and personality of the individual acting as a receiver and transducer for the universal idea. Once the idea is drawn into the mind of the receiver, it’s adapted to their paradigm, and modified into a new variation of the same overall idea. We reshape everything  producing a unique formula of properties that turns it into a form of hybrid. We construct a mental image out of internal light that becomes a form of “empty shell” or vehicle for spirit as an animating force to “enter into” and give it life. The mind produces an invisible electromagnetic field that acts to organize neutral matter as particles of light (photons) into vibratory patterns (essence) as holograms. Our mind as a “holographic model” acts as a kind of “parent pattern” (prototype) for producing an infinite number of offspring as fractal patterns of the same nature and kind.

The Relationship of Thought, Sensation, and Emotion

       When an idea is concentrated on and developed into a detailed version with sensory attributes, it elicits an emotional response of the same or equivalent nature. The emotion that’s of the same nature as the idea acts as the shaping mechanism that adapts it to a specific set of conditions and circumstances as a way of expressing it appropriately within the present reality. The thought as a virtual reality stimulates and informs the etheric body (of organized stable light) which acts to operate the endocrine system of the material body through electrical impulses that select and release equivalent hormones that produce and regulate the chemistry of the body to be of the same state as the idea. Thoughts stimulate emotions, which stimulate our entire nervous system and alter the chemistry of our body to match the nature of the thought and serve as a template for producing a corresponding outer reality. As we think, feel, and emote, we adjust every aspect of our physical body and chemical makeup to actively express our thoughts through correlating perceptions, behaviors and actions. We’re always adjusting our body to prepare for the reality of our thoughts.

As we form sensory images of reality in our imagination and form an emotional response to that reality, we simultaneously program our subconscious and send telepathic communication to the subconscious mind of everything around us, altering its state through influence, and affecting how information is organized to produce our outer perception of the same idea as a way of experiencing it. Our subconscious is “experiential in nature”, meaning it runs off of memories of actual experiences, and is emotionally driven. We form programs for our subconscious to create by vividly imagining ideas as sensory realities that are emotional in nature to produce a form of “virtual memory”. The subconscious uses memory as thematic patterns for organizing the outer world of the instinctual group mind to match the internal world of thought.

       As we concentrate on an idea, we tune ourselves to the vibration of the idea where we not only act as the receiver for more of the same type of ideas, but also become the means for expressing that idea to create a reality out of it. As we create a reality out of an idea, we simultaneously create a “sense ourselves” through the experience we have within that reality and form our identity around it. Ideas as vibratory frequencies are transmitted and received through resonance and sympathetic induction. The holographic principle operates by reproducing the same pattern as a “metaphorical theme” on multiple planes and scales simultaneously. Whatever pattern as a thematic idea we form and dwell in internally programs our outer reality with that same pattern on a larger scale. This works according to the same principle of mitosis where a single cell programmed with the same DNA, divides and regenerates to produce a replica of itself, that allows for a perception of itself as “another”. Each cell is essentially comprised of the same nature and then “specializes” by slightly re-configuring the same basic information in order to play a unique part in an even greater whole. Just as the body is constructed using a etheric  blueprint for the body as a whole, that tells each cell how to differentiate in order to play a unique function within a certain part of the body, our entire reality is structured according to the same process.

The same ideas we form internally become the perceptual lens as a etheric blueprint that we look through to perceive the same idea in the outer world as a correspondence. As we think we tune ourselves to the reality of our thoughts and “become” by way of that reality as a self-produced experience that forms a personal memory of it. The universal idea provides the parental pattern for producing an infinite number of fractal patterns of the same nature as its offspring. It resonates with the same information as complementary patterns in the outer world, and through sympathy re-configures the information it’s comprised of, changing how it appears to us as our perception of it. All of what we call reality is produced by our perception of it. Though we all share the same basic outer reality we all reshape it into a a slightly different reality of our own making.

We are All One

So to say we’re “all one” exists, like all ideas, as a dual-polar idea that forms a fundamental paradox. We are all of the same group mind of the subconscious that’s a fundamental part of the same universal reality. Like the plants and animals, we’re a part of a species that lives out of an unconscious state whose only sense of individuality comes as differences in our personality and lifestyle. Where we act as a mindless vessel for expressing whatever it is we’ve been taught and learn through various forms of entertainment, and where we act in a harmonized manner as a group to produce the same reality as a culture and society. Where there’s no actual individuality or true creativity and we’re simply given ideas that we express automatically and live out of as the means of creating ourselves. In the lower, material planes of density, the universal mind expresses as a group through a basic form of instinct born out of a primary unconscious state that lacks any true awareness of itself apart from that group.

At the same time, as humans, we are all a part of a higher kingdom of creative intelligence that operates willfully to create the individual. This is the realm of archetypes that are used as qualities and characteristics in different formulas that form a unique variation that expresses to create a unique reality. This idea is illustrated in the archetypes of the Zodiac as qualities and attributes that we all share in common in varying degrees and measure as universal consciousness that we’re all comprised of. In the realm of the higher mind of self-awareness, choice, and will, we draw from the universal in order to produce ourselves as a unique individual. In this level we exist apart from the group consciousness in the fundamental sense, and do not create ourselves based on others and our environment, but based exclusively on what we choose to draw into us from within. We think for ourselves, form our own decisions, consciously and deliberately direct our actions, and cultivate autonomy in everything we do. Here we are fully responsible for who we are, what we do, and who we become. There is no emotion to control or influence our thoughts, forming illusions in place of objective reality. We don’t experience guilt, shame, anger, joy, arousal, seduction, and the various forms of passions and desire that plague the material realm and act in a subliminal way to control and determine us through emotional states.

        These two worlds exist as a fundamental part of our nature represented by both the subconscious group mind and the self-conscious individual mind. The two aspects of the mind we have come to refer to as the heart and brain consciousness, or feelings and intellect, both of which are an inherent part of higher consciousness in an balanced state of harmony. In higher states of consciousness, objective intelligence forms all of our natural and self-initiated behaviors. We program our subconscious mind with thoughts that aren’t distorted by passions and desires. In this state, we’re conscious of the fact that our outer awareness is simply witnessing and experiencing the material reality of inner awareness produced by the subconscious. Here we operate according to the universal laws that govern both planes and use the masculine intellect to impregnate the feminine sensory mind to produce material reality as their offspring. We realize that what we’re experiencing as an outer reality is produced by our own imaginary thoughts concentrated on consistently with emotional intensity.

All of us as humans, with no exceptions, create our own experiences of what we call reality based on the thoughts and feelings we’ve been programmed with and continue to think about in a repetitive manner. Most of which are purely a product of our own conditioning and our tendency to live out of reactive emotional states and primal needs. Most people have been given all their thoughts by someone else through some form of teaching and learning which they then mistake as being their own. This is because the subconscious works by adapting ideas to the ever-changing outer world to produce corresponding variations of them. We mistake these variations of modified ideas as being original and self-generated because they appear to be somewhat unique from what we learned. We imagine that we think in an original way because our mind is always generating our thoughts out of a memory base. They only seem as if they our own thoughts because we live out of them as the fundamental means of experiencing ourselves and structuring our reality in a consistent way.

       Truly original thoughts only come from higher realms where originality exists as the potential for creating within the lower planes of instinct. They come through a process of “tuning into and downloading information” as ideas that were not and could not be produced out of our personal memory base. We tune into these ideas in the “ether” as the unified field of higher consciousness by either concentrating on an idea in an in-depth and prolonged manner, or by “wondering” about something. As we “wonder” about something, we form an inquiry as a “desire” to know that connects us to the answer. All questions and their answers are polar opposites of the same idea. As we concentrate with an open, curious mind (that doesn’t take an attitude of already knowing), we penetrate the depths of the known world and enter into the unknown, where ideas pop into our mind out of nowhere and begin spontaneously unfolding as a realization.

Whatever we form a desire for and intentionally seek out, we tune ourselves too internally and connect with that same idea externally. Ideas come to us as a form of inspiration that brings deeper insights into their true meaning and potential for creating realities. We act as the receiver for information and knowledge that existed outside of our paradigm and current life memories. In this manner mysteries are penetrated, secrets become known, and we touch on the unknown through the inner faculty of our own mind. We become the means through which higher knowledge comes into the world and finds appropriate expression that serves to benefit the greater good of everyone. We connect to our true origins as higher beings capable of impregnating material form with higher knowledge to create in a truly original and novel way.

Self-Mastery: Metamorphosis, Self-Creation, and the Art of Becoming

The true meaning of what we call “self-mastery” is our ability to master our own nature and resume conscious control over our higher capacities for creating ourselves. The fact is we’re always in the process of creating ourselves in every moment based on what we enter into relationship with, blend with energetically, and become like in nature. The mind, like the body, is comprised of vibrating essence that’s undergoing a constant process of metamorphosis by exchanging subtle energy with everything around it. The mind is a combination of both spirit and matter, and while it coagulates into temporary forms and becomes somewhat fixed and habitual in nature, it still remains in a constant flux and flow within the same fixed patterns and tendencies. The mind is what constitutes the inner nature and essence of form, and is what gives it its character and personality that determines how it functions and behaves, and what type of stories it naturally participates in.

Nothing can be truly “known” unless it’s experienced and lived. We “become” by way of our self-created experiences. In order to know ourselves in a certain way, we have to create an experience of it. By experiencing it, we get a sense of ourselves as the experience, and identify with “being that way”. The more experiences we have of a certain nature, the more firmly we become identified with being of the same nature. This is how we’re “conditioned” through the dramas and dynamics being played out that we’re a part of that serve to shape our personality and inner nature as our constitution and character. Once the initial pattern is established, we then act unconsciously to generate more and more of the same type of experiences as the outer expression of our inner nature that acts simultaneously to create us through habitual tendencies. The mind is fluid, malleable, and fixed simultaneously, and readily shapes into patterns as a self-organizing mechanism that then undergoes a constant state of re-organizing its essential structure by blending with other natures (minds) of a similar, yet diverse nature.

The Nature of the Mind as the Monad

The mind, as a combination of both spirit (archetypes) and matter (essence), forms a sphere of stabilized energy as an electromagnetic field of alternating currents, referred to in modern science as a Torus, and simply as a “sphere” or “Monad” in Spiritual Sciences. This electromagnetic sphere of energy is comprised of information that’s constantly being absorbed, broke down to complementary terms, then assimilated and synthesized into an overall information matrix, upgrading and modifying it. All energy as vibration contains information as patterns that produce form structured by an inherent self-organizing mechanism. The main frequency for our information matrix as our mental paradigm or “model of the world” is always absorbing and integrating other information of a similar nature, and reorganizing itself by incorporating.

We can only resonate with and thereby absorb into our mind information that’s of the same or similar frequency (nature) to us. While all have what we can call a “consistent frequency” that we vibrate at as our core, habitual frequency (mind-set), it can still act to attract, draw in, and integrate information that’s somewhat different yet close enough in nature that it serves to grow and evolve our model by expanding it. Other information that’s too different in nature and can’t be readily incorporated, that’s vibrating at a frequency to far apart from ours, can’t be recognized or understood, and so we can’t serve as a channel for it to manifest through us. For this reason, evolution only comes through a constant process of “learning by becoming one with other spheres” and steadily modifying our vibration and inner nature through gradual increments. When learning stops, growth stops, and we become fixed and start dying.

The mind-field as a Torus (sphere), represented in Sacred Geometry by the “Flower of Life” as a sphere of complementary electromagnetic currents circulating in opposite directions simultaneously within the same space, both expands and contracts as a form of respiration. As it expands out to a peripheral boundary, it’s simultaneously attracting and repulsing information, then turns back towards its core and draws the magnetized information into itself for metabolizing. As its vibration shifts through the incorporation of new energy, it no longer resonates with old, outdated information vibrating at a different rate, and it’s eliminated from the system as a form of waste by exhaling and sending it back out into the space around us as a form of recycling. So we’re constantly in the process of organizing and reorganizing ourselves as an energetic matrix of knowledge attained by blending into it and becoming of the same nature.

Sexual Union

The Sexual Principle

We’re always mixing and blending into the spheres of intelligent energy around us through the natural activity of the subconscious mind. We do this naturally and without any direct awareness of what’s taking place, and what’s acting “on” and “in” us to create us. As we blend and mix with other mind-fields, we take on the same nature and essence and start becoming like them in nature. This is a natural form of influence that’s going on all the time through the relationships we naturally form with everyone and everything around us. Whomever we associate with on a regular basis, we start becoming like in attitude and outlook, mind-set, emotions, thoughts, behaviors and tendencies, and so on. The stronger and more intimate the relationship, the more it effects and transforms us. No bond is greater than sexual intercourse, or mother and child, where an actual “fusion” takes place, or the child grows in and is produced by the same nature as the mother.

Anyone that we’ve had sexual intercourse with we permanently bond with in nature and essence, shaping us morally and determining our destiny through a shared nature. This is why marriage was only consummated through sexual intercourse where two people became “as one in spirit and mind”, and began operating as a single entity. This principle is represented in modern quantum physics by an “interference pattern”, formed by two fields of the same frequency blending together, altering the frequency of both to form a new coherent frequency, and “entanglement” where any two particles (entities) that are “born together” or become entangled (fuse energetically), become “as one” and continue to function as the same nature or frequency even when separated by great distances. This is often hard for us to understand in practical terms because it happens at the subtle level of the subconscious mind that operates automatically without our direct awareness. This is how we form “karmic bonds” with people that last throughout time where we continue incarnating together through a shared energetic (spiritual) nature that cooperatively plays out a joint experience of reality.

The Principles of Sacred Geometry

In Spiritual Sciences this same idea is represented in Sacred Geometry as the Tetrad, where the Monad (sphere of consciousness) blends into and forms union with a regenerated aspect of itself as an energetic marriage of polar opposites. This marriage forms the Dyad as the “womb of the universe”, and together produce a new inner nature as the Triad (subtle body), which then provides the foundation for the outer reality of the Tetrad as its offspring(physical body). This symbolizes the “three in one” principle of all single entities being comprised of complementary opposites who interact to form a third, functional aspect as a new and unique combination of shared qualities. Our inner nature is always mingling with everything around us, fluctuating and changing, yet stable and consistent, forming our perception of reality and all of our actions and deeds.

As we go through life, we’re always exchanging energy and information with others and our environment, experiencing ourselves by way of the exchange in new and varied ways, and transforming our identity by way of the experiences it brings. This is the process we develop our ego through as our identification with the material world. Likewise, this is also the process we use to form our identity in and intentional and purposeful way. All of our life events and our relationship with others provide us with a kind of “moral test” where we’re attracted to and seduced by other people’s nature and actions. As we enter into relationship with them and the activities they naturally engage in and take on the same qualities as a result, and we like how we become and thereby start identifying with being that type of person, we become the same in nature and are ultimately corrupted by it at the soul level. As we transform ourselves to “lower energies”, those born out of desire for pleasure and personal gain of some kind, that strengthens our identification with material things, we can no longer serve as the vehicle for “higher energies”, and we cut ourselves off from our spiritual source as the result. We condemn our soul to the material existence our identity is dependent on for creating ourselves, and that “false identity” dies with the body that birthed and sustained it.

        In all forms of initiation as spiritual growth and awakening a process of self-purification is necessary as the first step, because all higher knowledge can only come “through” a nature that’s of a similar or equivalent nature. One that’s of a similar morality and vibratory frequency in terms of its moral character. We can only “attain” knowledge through our ability to become one with it as an experience of it. Higher, spiritual knowledge only comes through direct experience, not as a theory that’s recited and talked about but never brought into practice. All spiritual knowledge is a practice of some kind that produces and experience of it “as” it. We only learn by living. So a purification process is the prerequisite and foundation necessary for becoming a vehicle for higher knowledge. We purify ourselves through conscious use of the same creative process of what we’re identified with and use as the means of creating our experiences.

We’re always forming an amalgamation with the nature of others as the means of becoming “like them”. The Higher Soul exists in a constant purified state that’s symbolically represented by gold. This is because of the properties gold naturally possesses that allows it to blend with and form a new solid (fixed form) with other metals, that can then be reheated and returned to a liquid state where it separates from the other metals and resumes its natural constitution as “pure gold”. Gold is soft and malleable in its natural state, and only hardens into a rigid and fixed shape when combined with other profane metals. This is the same property the soul possesses in being able to blend with other essences, becoming stabilized and fixed in form as a result, then through active use of the will, separate from the essence it took on and return to its pure unadulterated nature. Gold is also “non-reactive”, and so it never tarnishes or corrodes. In order to maintain the soul in a purified state, we have to neutralize ourselves to the emotional states that govern the material plane and not “react” to them or be altered by them in any way.

Temptation

The true test of “temptation” is when we’re not tempted at all by it because we’re not identified with it and it’s not “in us” as a part of us. We’re only tempted by things and idea we have a desire for, feel a strong connection to, and form a natural reaction to in some way. We’re seduced by the experience it offers that we use in turn to shape ourselves through. When we find something repulsive or disgusting, we’re still using it to shape ourselves through the experience of our reaction to it. Any reaction is a form of corruption because we’re still forming our identity based on the experience the adverse reaction gives us. We shape our identity by contrasting and opposing it, so we’re still identified with it and literally being controlled and determined by the material world. The whole process of spiritual purification and assuming our true identity comes by not being effected by the material world or the nature and behavior of others.

This is forming the recognition of the true nature of things as the spiritual world as the mind and internal nature of things being what “animates and determines” them, and not the other way around. The spiritual world has supremacy over the material world and is what acts to create it and give it life. Once we become identified with our higher nature by “becoming it” in essence, material forms and ideas no longer affect us and don’t cause a reaction of any kind “in us”. We no longer act to “draw in” and become one with them as a joint experience of the same nature, and remain in a neutral state in relationship to them. When purified (mentally, emotionally, and physically) and embodying higher levels of consciousness, we become a vehicle and instrument for higher powers that are neutral and unbiased to the actions and nature of others, where we’re never controlled or determined by them.

The Nature of Compassion

By acquiring a thorough understanding of how this process works through the Law of Vibration and Resonance, we can begin working with it in an intentional manner to self-create while forming compassion for others. We can “blend with” and then “un-blend” with others at will. We can blend with those whose character traits we want to awaken in us, actively express, and become identified with, then dissolve the connection once that has been achieved. We can also learn how to dissolve our bond with those who are of poor character or never form a relationship with them to begin with. By intentionally entering into and becoming one with the nature of another and “experience life as they do”, we can become compassionate and truly see and understand them as they are. Then we can separate ourselves from them and return to our normal state a part from them. When this becomes a conscious process undertaken with full awareness of what we’re doing and why, we don’t become a permanent part of them by beginning to participate in the same reality from the same perspective as a drama of some kind because we relate to them and begin identifying with them. This is what happens when it’s an unconscious process that takes place without our awareness or intention.

True compassion is a demonstration of self-mastery as the conscious application of law. We can only create on any given plane by utilizing the laws governing that plane. We have to enter into the sphere of that plane, becoming of the same nature as it is, and work with the experience it naturally produces while still maintaining full awareness of our self and our intention for doing so and not get lost in the experience of it. It’s easy to get lost in the illusion of the experience because it’s so real it draws us into it through a form of reverie and we lose memory of ourselves as being apart from it and recognition of the truth that’s operating through it. Whenever we get caught up in an experience where we’re truly and intimately involved and participating in it as part of it, we enter into a primarily unconscious state. It requires constant practice and full awareness in order to maintain an awareness of the laws involved that are making the experience possible. Once we can get to the point where we can stay aware of what’s going on through the whole process, we can begin using it as a profound tool for our own spiritual growth and advancement by becoming an instrument for Higher Powers to work in the world through sole identification with our Higher, Universal Self that’s not subject to reality, but is instead the one that’s orchestrating it.

The Triune Nature of the Soul – How the Divine Soul can use the Lower Soul as a Vehicle and Instrument for Self-Development

The idea of “what the soul is” can be very confusing because most try to comprehend it from a purely materialistic form. Yet the soul itself, is not material in nature, though it’s the subtle field of energy that acts to create not only the material body in which it then inhabits, but also creates the entire material realm of what we call “reality” while in a physical body. All of the material reality as various separate forms that together comprise a larger unified form as a cohesive and coherent reality is accompanied by a field of subtle energy that acts to “in-form” it, and animates it through various creative processes and behaviors as the expression of certain attributes, qualities, and characteristics. This subtle field of holographic (structured) information that accompanies every physical form, is invisible in nature as what we call the “mind” or intelligence of the organism, and is what acts to give it life as an “entity” of some kind. This “intelligent field” is comprised of certain types of information as memory, and is what acts to sequence the DNA of the material body generating a physical form as its equivalent correspondence on a denser plane. All of what we call “reality” exists as multiple planes that act as correlating parallel dimensions that form a gradient scale that move from subtle to dense levels within the same frequency as a larger scale.

In all major spiritual traditions the idea of the soul is described in a similar manner through the concept of the Holy Trinity, the Monad of Sacred Geometry, or the primal Law of Three-in-One. This threefold nature of the soul is the basis for all analogies describing the threefold nature of the mind and the individual produced by the mind. In all spiritual traditions the soul and mind are considered the same thing, although the mind can also be seen as the vehicle or instrument of the soul. It’s only in modern times that we’ve attempted to explain everything from a material basis as being “causal in nature” while presenting the mind as being something that the brain (body) gives rise to and is somehow mysteriously capable of producing. Whenever we look at stuff through a purely material perspective we take an attitude of separating everything into parts, and creating a whole out of the parts, which in reality are unified in nature and a part of the same thing (holographic). The entire material world exists as a unification and expression of the spiritual realm of pure energy and consciousness, which acts to provide the intelligent matrix as a substratum out of which it arises and is animated through a form of mass consciousness.

The Psyche

The soul is described in most traditions as an “individual entity” that’s distinct and a part from the body, and is what serves to organize, form, and give life to the body. It produces life through the “Principle of Life” that operates as vibration that we experience as feelings, emotions, thoughts, and activity. It’s described as the incorporeal essence of a living sentient being – capable of feeling, sensing, perceiving, and experiencing. The soul is often described as the “psyche” or the mind as the place where our thoughts come from. The soul and the butterfly were given the same name in ancient traditions, which is the center of thought, feeling, and motivation, consciously and unconsciously directing the body’s reaction to its physical and social environment. Psychology, a field of science that studies the mind, soul, and spirit, is derived from the Greek term of “Psyche” used to describe the soul.

Modern day psychology is a science of mind and behavior, which has unfortunately begun moving towards eliminating the very source of its own study as a means of following suite with other material sciences in order to be accepted as a valid and credible field of science. Many other traditions become much more lucid with the soul being equivalent to “breath” or “air” (atmosphere in which life exists) in the Elements as the combination of Fire (will) and Water (feeling) as an invisible power that animates the material world through a form of Divine Inspiration, which comes through a Divine Voice as the “Word of God”, Spirit, or Holy Ghost. The essence that underlies our existence as the third person in the Trinity referred to as the Holy Ghost, is the Etheric Body (phantom-like hologram) as the psyche in form that provides the blueprint for organizing and producing the physical body as an exact replica or double.

For practical purposes we can create a “model” of the threefold nature of the soul-mind in order to gain an understanding of how it operates, which is necessary in order to consciously utilize it to create. While we commonly hear sayings like “we’re not a body having a soul experience, we’re a soul having a body experience”, many don’t know what this means in the most basic sense of actually experiencing it that way, or, more importantly, what it means to be a “soul within a body”. This is largely due to the fact that while we have a tendency to continuously separate them, the body is an aspect of and produced by the Higher Soul as it’s material equivalent that serves as a temple, vehicle, and instrument for the Higher Soul to create within the lower and denser material plane. In order to “work” (create) within a given plane, you have to create and exist within the conditions of that plane and work by way of the laws that govern it. The true soul exists on several planes above the physical plane, and has to undergo a transformative process as multiple stages of a step-down process of transduction in order to fully manifest as a body within the material plane. The highest level of the soul, which exists on an entirely different plane, is usually referred to as the Higher Self or God, and the “middle soul” which acts as a medium between the higher and the lower is the human soul of our individuality, and the lower soul is the etheric body that forms the physical body as a member of the collective unconscious of the animal kingdom.

The mind, without a physical body, doesn’t fully exist within the material plane as an actual entity capable of taking action and creating in a deliberate manner, and instead can only act to “influence” other minds within physical forms. In order to exist and create within the lower, denser realms, the Higher Soul of pure energy must fashion and inhabit or energetically bond with a body. It must take on a physical form that’s of the same nature and likeness (frequency) as it is. It acts to bond with the DNA that’s of the “same potential” as it is in terms of memory that will naturally produce certain types of experiences as the means of self-expression and self-creation. The lower soul of the etheric/physical body possesses the same “mind” of the middle (higher) soul in its dual components, and shares the same type of personality, identity, and karma as the genetic makeup and ancestral heredity (memories of our ancestors) of the body.

The Higher Soul, which is commonly called the “Higher Self”, never fully manifests within the material plane of form, but rather projects into it by taking on dual aspects necessary for producing both a visible and invisible component of the same thing. The mind first aligns with (resonates) and merges into (sympathetic induction) the DNA of an equivalent nature (same frequency) and kind, infusing it with the life-force energy that sequences and formulates it with a self-organizing mechanism inherent in vibration itself as a holographic model (etheric body) or paradigm (field of information organized into a thematic pattern).

The Lower Soul of the Subconscious Mind

The soul, like the DNA of the body is comprised of “memory” as the information that “in-forms it” and gives it the qualities, characteristics, temperament, disposition, and tendencies it naturally exhibits as normal perceptions and behaviors. The body’s DNA carries with it the memory of ancestors that are aligned with the same nature as the Higher Soul, which is what caused the soul to resonate with it. The Higher Soul forms energetic sympathy with the same “type of soul” in the lower realms. In the lower, material realm, the soul exists as the subconscious aspect of the mind that we share with all of the animal kingdom that has a sentient nature, and thinks and acts from a purely unconscious state as instinctual behaviors.

The lower soul of the body operates strictly out of memory of various sorts that provides it with the means for producing more of the same type of behaviors produced out of the same type of perceptions. For human beings this comes as a form of “tribal mentality” where we exist purely as a part of a greater whole of shared consciousness that has no individuality apart from the tribe. When living out of our lower nature, equivalent to that of an animal, we’re shaped purely through our conditioning and whatever perceptual models and behaviors we’ve been trained to by participating in them. When living out of a predominately unconscious state, we simply live out of the past as a means of perceiving and interpreting the present to mean the same thing as the past, and forming the same responses and behaviors, creating the future to be of the same nature as the past. In this sense we become identified with our body and lower nature, and fail to realize our true identity as a higher, divine being with creative abilities, and never learn how to use our conscious mind and ability to think, reason, and decide for ourselves. When this happens, we fall into a primary state of unawareness, become totally identified with our past conditioning and our physical existence, and lose contact with our Higher-Self as our true identity and ultimate potential, and we become lost in what is in reality an illusion of our own making.

When we come to realize instead that there is a higher aspect of ourselves, of our mind and soul, and learn to quit identifying with our past by continuing to live out the story we created out of it in the present as the means creating our reality and “sense of ourselves” as fully identified with our body and life circumstances, we can begin to realize that the body as the subconscious mind, is the “creative powerhouse” of the material plane and can be used skillfully to create in an intentional and deliberate manner. If we simply detach from our identification with it and the past, and observe how we can use our mind to create our reality, we can learn how to use it in a like manner to create in a deliberate and precise way. We can come to realize that we don’t have to keep dwelling in the past as a means of experiencing the present by playing the same group of memories over and over in our mind, and we begin consciously choosing “how we want to be” instead by recognizing our true nature. We can let go of our attachments to the past and our beliefs about things and remain fully aware instead, and in that awareness decide in every moment what we choose to create as a true expression of who we actually are. We can decide what kind of story we want to tell and what kind of person we’ll become as a result of that story.

Conscious Self-Creation and Destiny

In order to create anything in a conscious manner you have to first form a clear idea of what it is you’re creating. You have to do a form of “soul searching” where you begin to sense who you really are and who you want to become. We’re all born with a “story” imprinted within us as the dream for our life. This story requires certain aspects of us as qualities and characteristics to be actively employed in order to “tell” it by living it. The Higher Soul comes into the physical world in order to create itself through a developmental process of growth and self-expression. Whatever memories we’ve accumulated up to this point merely act as the foundation for continued growth. Some potential is active and fully expressing, while others remain dormant and are not being actively utilized or developed. Our dream as the story we’re imprinted with at the soul level (human/middle soul) that we came here to tell, requires us to transform what qualities and aspects of ourselves are active and which ones are passive.

Often, in order to obtain our dream and bring into active expression latent aspects of ourselves requires us to move into and resolve some of our greatest fears. These fears are what have prevented us from actively moving forward in our life pursuing our dream, and have kept us from becoming empowered in our own process of self-creation. All of our limitations that aren’t “actual” are the result of a fear that we’ve built a belief around as a story we tell ourselves about why we can’t do something. When we embody a sense of courage and employ a more neutral and open mindset, and we decide to move ahead in spite of our fears, the fears themselves steadily dissolve and we come to realize there was never really anything to fear. It was all something we made up in our imagination that was only acting to hold us back.

Creating your Ideal – your Soul’s Highest Potential

The first step to conscious self-creation by embodying your true identity as the creator of your own reality, is to develop a well-defined idea of yourself as your “ideal self”. This is where you create yourself according to your highest potential, and to be the best person you can be. Where you choose to actively employ your best traits, utilize your gifts and talents, and decide with detailed accuracy the type of story you’re going to tell by how you live your life. You create a model as a moral code of conduct that you hold yourself to in making all of your moment by moment decisions. You decide which qualities you want to develop into strengths and use to express and create, and you do so in an intentional manner as a daily practice. You constantly review this ideal, concentrate on it, imagine yourself being that way in different situations as a form of “mental rehearsal”, and actively practice “being that way” in a constant and consistent fashion. Like all creation which comes from habitual behaviors and perceptions, you have to practice something for an extended period of time until it becomes a natural part of you that’s automatic in nature.

Knowing that the subconscious mind works out of memory as an experience of reality as the basis for creating more realities that produce more of the same type of experiences, we know that the way to provide it with a new template for creating is to create the desired trait or reality as an “imagined experience”. It’s not about intellectually conceptualizing an idea in a theoretical and detached manner as a form of command or order, but rather creating it as an actual experience with full sensory enhancement and intense feelings, and with emotions that make it very desirable and compelling. You create it in your mind “as if it’s happening” and you’re “in the experience of it”, having it. You have to convert all ideas you want to manifest into the language of the subconscious, which is memory as an actual experience that has strong emotions connected to it.

We say in psychology that you can “only do what you can first imagine or see yourself doing”. This is because it’s the subconscious mind that does the “doing”. Anytime you want to create an experience of reality that doesn’t already exist, you have to first create it as an imaginary experience, feel and sense yourself “in it” doing it. You have to set the stage as the necessary conditions and possible set of circumstances in which it would naturally occur, and then create the experience just like you want it to go in your mind’s eye, while forming sensory awareness of it in very well-defined terms. Place yourself in the ideal situation then direct and develop it by asking . . . what are you seeing? Hearing? What are you feeling or touching? Smelling? Tasting? And what are you telling yourself about it? Create it in a way that stimulates and produces very positive emotions. Then dwell heavily in the feeling-emotional aspect of it, amplifying it to make it intense (calibrate yourself to that vibration). This sets the frequency as a thematic pattern in our mind that acts also to organize the outer environment into the same pattern. Whatever we vibrate we not only connect to in our environment, but we actually act to orchestrate and recompose our environment according to the same pattern as a larger theme necessary for the event to naturally take place.

The subconscious mind is motivated by pleasure and pain. It moves into and towards pleasure, seeking it out, and out of and away from pain, avoiding it at all costs. You have to always remove any sense of pain or conflict around an idea in order to use the subconscious to deliberately create it. If you associate pain of any kind to an idea, you’ll be acting to repel it instead of attracting it. As you imagine the idea and develop it in sensory terms while feeling very positive emotions because of the experience, play it over and over in your mind until you can recall it instantly in its complete form, just like an actual memory. Concentrate your attention on it in a redundant, daydreaming fashion just like you do other memories. Then create more imaginary experiences of the same idea, playing them over and over until they can be recollected in their whole-form instantly, and play it out in your mind in a habitual and automatic fashion like your normal memories do.

All realities as sensory experience formed into a memory, produce their own electromagnetic field as a vibratory frequency. All vibratory frequencies as an electromagnetic field has a self-organizing mechanism that organizes matter into patterns through a process of activating and deactivating certain properties, forming a new pattern, and through attraction and repulsion. This basic law of vibration works on all scales and levels existence, whether in making a single entity, scenario, or creating a greater reality. As we think by replaying memories, we keep ourselves tuned to the frequency of those thoughts, forming a gravitational field between us and the outer elements of the same type of reality. Our imagined thoughts as memories of some form become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Thoughts formed into ideas as possible realities are the creative power of the mind to shape matter. In this way the Higher Soul of the human (self-conscious) mind, instead of identifying itself “as” the lower mind, and creating unconsciously through a form of instinct and conditioning, can learn how to utilize the lower subconscious mind to create itself in an intentional and deliberate manner and impose a direction on its destiny by evolving itself to a higher level of consciousness.

Intuition – Energetic Currents and the Synchronistic Flow of Spiritual Guidance

All of life at the energetic level flows in currents as frequencies. A frequency is formed by all information or ideas of a similar or corresponding nature being interconnected and one leads to another through a chain-of-association. Likewise, we all exist in an energetic frequency that naturally connects and forms a synchronistic flow with everything around us that’s of a similar nature to us. Our thoughts come naturally as a part of the current we exist as a part of, and are what serves to guide and direct our attention onto specific ideas. As we go through life within these currents we only notice, pay attention to, and interact with what’s of the same nature as we are. A frequency forms the “inner nature” of something that serves to animate it with a certain level and quality of consciousness. Our inner nature is a “state” as a condition that’s comprised of a series of fluctuating states as moods that form a range of vibration. This range of vibration as various moods that are all cohesive and coherent in nature together forms a frequency that flows as a current of energy and type of consciousness. Whenever we concentrate all of our attention onto an idea, becoming fully present with it as an intimate imaginary process, we enter into the flow of that current and a form of spontaneous unfolding starts taking place where the idea takes on a life of its own and begins expanding into deeper aspects as insights of various sorts, and forms a chain-of-association with other ideas and it moves us along a synchronistic path that continuously expands on itself. One idea leads to another idea, which expands on it while leading to another, and next thing you know, after thoroughly investigating each one, you’ve acquired an extensive breath of knowledge around the idea. As an insight it formed around one aspect of a greater idea, a natural connection is made to other ideas of a similar nature that are correlated somehow. This synchronistic flow of ideas will lead to other ideas that you would have never thought of logically or if left to your own means. Whenever we set an intention of some kind and become inquisitive in regards to it, we set a process into motion by seeking information about it, then give our full attention to it, concentrating on it, taking it in and assimilating it, seeding our mind and imagination with it in a single minded fashion, and we act to prompt the spontaneous unfolding of a dynamic matrix of correlated ideas. As we concentrate fully on an idea, our mind enters into and merges with it, penetrating its depths and we gain new insight into what previously went unknown. As we merge into and become one with an idea spiritually (mentally), we tap into its invisible aspect, and it begins revealing itself to us. Once it begins spontaneously unfolding within us, all we have to do is remain present with it and observe it while relinquishing all mental commentary and need to try and control it. If we try and explain it to ourselves as it’s revealing its hidden nature, we either influence it to match our preconceived notions about it, or we break the flow and it returns to a mundane status. In order to maintain the magical flow of the invisible world becoming knowable, we have to relinquish all thought about it and simply take an attitude of being entertained by it. We have to passively witness it without discrimination or imposing a belief on it. This is the intuitive process that leads to all true creativity and original thought. The true power of the mind doesn’t come from our ability to generate our own thoughts about things, which are usually rehashing memories of various sorts, but rather from our ability to tune into the ideas that are already present in the ether all around us, and act to absorb them while letting them rise up within our mind and express as our inner imaginings. We tap into existing ideas as a current of information that comes as whole ideas that are connected to other ideas in a synchronistic fashion by resonating with them. All of life exists as a dynamic series or interrelated correspondences and analogies. All ideas originate as metaphors and archetypes, and lend themselves to an infinite number of unique variations based on how they enter into relationship with the individual mind perceiving them. As we tune ourselves to a frequency by thinking about something in a concentrative, single minded manner, we calibrate ourselves to the frequency of that idea and we begin resonating with it all around us. Through resonance we tap into it energetically, and act as a receptor for it, that’s also an adapter. As we tune into ideas in our mind, which begins as memory regarding the idea, and begin thinking about it based on what we currently know about it, we start a process in motion that then takes on a life of its own. We vibrate at the frequency of the “known aspects” (which who knows if they’re even remotely accurate), and as we access that same idea in the ether (atmosphere) of the greater mind, it’s vibrating at a similar, though different vibration. As we merge with it (sympathetic induction), a process of adaptation and modification takes place where it’s adjusted to the theme of our paradigm, which is necessary in order for us to fully comprehend it, and it transforms into a congruent median between the two, and forms coherence as an altered vibration of both the original and the personal idea. All ideas that exist in Archetypal form are modified to form variations when they serve as an “original idea” at the personal level. All personal creations that came as a form of “down load” or spontaneous vision, are the result of an amalgamation. The blending of two different substances or vibratory frequencies that a combination of both. All reality as we’re capable of knowing it is a perception (creation) of our mind, is subjective in nature and a variable as a unique version produced by the formula of the combination (same principle that governs DNA in creating a new form). As two ideas come together and merge into each other, forming what we scientifically call an interference pattern (Dyad), where the same idea interferes with itself as another similar idea, the elements they share in common are readily compatible and are amplified, emphasized, and increased, while the ones that contradict each other tend to cancel each other out and disappear (return to a dormant state). This forms a new variation of the same idea as a unique formula or altered vibration. As we merge into Archetypal ideas, or penetrate the surface of partially known ideas, we are constantly upgrading our ability to grasp and comprehend more and more complex aspects of it. Each time the idea is modified through the incorporation of new information, it sets the foundation at a higher level for the next incorporation. The more and more we study and concentrate on ideas, the more capable we become of comprehending those ideas with great depth and diversity. We literally raise our vibration in steady increments through the constant integration of more in-depth information only obtained from entering into the flow of that idea through deep concentrative states. When we study on a daily or regular basis and dedicate a fair amount of time to the pursuit of knowledge through deep concentration, our study takes on a life of its own as a synchronistic flow that leads us along a path of discovery. As we think, merge into and concentrate our attention, ideas form in our imagination and we begin seeing them from very different perspectives, each of which affords us greater and greater insights into the idea that broadens our ability to perceive it in a fully holistic and unified manner. As we think deeply about something while imagining it as a concept or internal representation of reality, we automatically form associations to other ideas that provide us with a path of continued study as a synchronistic flow. One idea fully realized, naturally leads to another, or in order to fully realize one idea we have to incorporate many interrelated ideas because of the magnitude of its scope and the vastness of its implications and possible applications. Nowhere is this truer than when studying universal laws, which of course is the true basis of all knowledge. By entering into the flow of life and the ideas that make up life, and pursuing a life of continuous growth and development as the acquisition of knowledge that’s available all around us, we enter into a magical process of intuitive synchronicity. When we use our mind in the way that its designed and meant to be used, and we nurture the fire within us that yearns and longs to “know and create”, and we give our full attention to ideas that we feel a deep and natural connection to, we step into a magical flow that ushers us along through a state of fascination, wonder, and awe. As we merge into and act as the host for living ideas to dance and unfold joyously before us, filled with feelings of reverence and euphoria while watching them, we form a natural love and devotion for the experience they provide us with. When we really begin comprehending the true nature of life, and how even the smallest and seemingly insignificant phenomena is a magical and miraculous event, it fills us with an indescribable form of joy that makes us want to sing and rejoice while marveling at its intoxicating beauty. Anytime we become fully present, form a purely passive and receptive state of mind while giving our full attention to something, subduing all mental commentary as internal dialogue, and allow an idea to enter into and consume our imagination while calmly witnessing it, allowing it to spontaneously unfold and reveal itself to us in terms of its hidden and invisible nature, we acquire the “knowledge of it” through a purely intuitive manner as the “direct experience of it”. In this way we can absorb things and comprehend them through the experience of them that we can’t explain, which means it doesn’t come as a result of our mental model of self-generated thoughts, but exists as real outside of our model. Through the experience of it, it’s naturally integrated into our model, upgrading it through the incorporation. As we “experience” something that’s not produced by us, and it serves to modify our mental model of the world, it becomes a part of all our basic and natural perceptions. Once we’re able to form a perception of something that we weren’t able to before, we readily and naturally perceive it from that point on. A kind of shift takes place as the modification of our perceptual lens and filters. Once an idea is integrated into our mind, it becomes a permanent part of us and our perception of reality, because our mind is what produces our reality. The way to spontaneously obtain knowledge of a higher form (universal) and develop our ability to enter into a meditative, trance-like state of passive awareness, is to become present without any distractions or a divided mind, and concentrate solely on an idea in a single minded fashion. Allow the idea to rise up in your imagination while subduing all resistance or mental commentary and narrative, let go of all needs and attachments regarding the idea (beliefs), and start the flow by thinking about it in regards to what you currently know. Feel yourself enter into the magnetic current of the idea as merging with and into it, and allow it to take on a life of its own, being and doing whatever it wants to be and do, and simply observe it from a passive and fully relaxed state. Don’t try to change it or need it to be something specific, just let it reveal itself to you in its own terms while allowing a natural chain-of-association to take place as a dynamic series of interrelated ideas of the same nature. Give yourself over to be a neutral and free-flowing channel for the idea to express through. Then as you begin slowly breaking your concentration and “coming back” to a mentally active state, think about it as a way of “retaining it”. Just as moving from a dream state to awakened one, as we change states we often “forget” or have trouble remembering what we comprehended about that idea while in that state. I usually write it down, draw, and develop it a bit as a way of retaining it with full awareness so I can apply it somehow in my life to create by way of it. Dr. Linda Gadbois

Creativity – The Relationship between Choice, Will, and Creating Reality

 

It doesn’t take long to realize that in life all things exist in relationship to each other. There’s really no such thing as an independent or solitary act. Everything comes as a result of something else, or as a synchronized series of events that play out over a period of time. While we can say that “no choice” is a choice, or that unconscious decisions that are seemingly made without awareness or in a deliberate manner, that are based primarily on feelings, emotions, or impulses of some sort, are still using your will because you’re willingly acting them out, this is passive use of the will that likewise creates in our life in an unconscious manner. Choice and will, like all faculties of the mind and soul, exist in both active and passive form based on awareness and deliberate action, or without direct awareness and in an automatic fashion.

Anytime we’re aware of choice, and we negotiate it in an intentional manner, it usually comes as a decision between a conditioned response and a conflict of some sort as a conscience or inner awareness that makes us hesitate and resist it, and so we look for other options. Whenever we make an “actual” and true decision in a fully aware and intentional manner, we naturally leave all other options we were previously debating behind and move forward to create the choice we’ve made as our reality. We remove our attention from all other ideas, become single-minded, focusing exclusively on the reality of our choice, and we direct all of our attention and actions into creating it. Once our mind is made up and all conflict dissolves, our only movement becomes directed by the imagined reality of our decision, and we act systematically to create it. This is why “choice and free will” are always presented together, because they’re different aspects of the same creative process.

If we experience the inability to do something that we believe we’ve chosen to do, it’s due to the fact that we haven’t truly made the decision for it, but are still bartering, debating, and negotiating it. It can be showing us that we still harbor inner conflict around it, still have attachments of some kind to what we’re deciding against, or we have conflicting beliefs and values of some sort that are holding us to indecision. Often our emotions and feelings are contradicting it or wanting something different than our rational, reasoning mind, and so our mind is divided. Anytime there’s a division between the subconscious and conscious mind, with one aspect of the mind acting to contradict or counteract the other one, we sit in limbo not knowing what to do, always going back and forth, sabotaging our own efforts, never actually able to settle on one or the other, until someone or something makes the decision for us and we no longer have a choice in the matter.

 

While there’s a tendency for society to tell you to pick “one over the other”, to follow your heart and not your mind (as if they’re different things), the fact is, it’s always about a balance between the two. An alignment that forms a single mind as a single goal, free of all conflict, that works dynamically in-sync with each other to create the reality of that choice. Anytime we pose one aspect against another, we’re doomed to failure or a seeming success that merely forms the foundation for inner turmoil and conflict to play out as a constant realization of betraying ourselves in some way. Thought and emotion, intellect and feeling, heart and head, are always unified, one producing and sustaining the other. There’s no such thing as a division in the true sense of the word. The masculine and feminine aspects are only capable of creating when forming union that produces an offspring that’s a combination of the two. They always act in unison as “one idea” that produces the material reality as a correspondence of that idea.

The Power of Emotions

Making a “true decision” where all aspects are aligned and agree, can often be quite difficult, and may actually come over a period of time while different aspects that negate the desired outcome in some way are played out and explored in greater depth, so that the necessary realizations can be obtained, which serves to confirm what you need to decide. Our subconscious, which is the seat of all of our conditioning as our mental paradigm, habitual tendencies, regular emotional states, and dynamics that are magnetic and compulsive in nature, seeks only to maintain the status quo as a form of self-preservation by continuing to play out the thematic dynamics that we’ve built our identity around, and need to keep playing out somehow in order to maintain our “sense of self”.

We keep casting ourselves in the roles we know how to play, and telling the story we know how to tell and do so in a natural, automatic, and compulsive fashion. We’re magnetically drawn to it even when intellectually and through reasoning we know we don’t want to be or shouldn’t. It works through our emotions, which are often gripping and intense, holding us captive to passions and intense emotional experiences that saturate our body with the chemistry and hormones of the emotions, satisfying a form of addiction. Emotions, being the motivating force of the subconscious mind and body, which is habitual and automatic in nature, are habit forming and we literally become addicted to them, even when we hate ourselves for doing it. Emotions, which are the driving force of instinct, are designed to produce automatic behavior that don’t require will, thought and decision, or self-awareness of any kind. We become addicted to pain just as easily as we do pleasure, because they’re both a drug produced internally that we become dependent on and use not only to create and maintain our state of mind, but also to create our reality out of, which is how we act in an indirect manner on ourselves to create ourselves.

Anytime emotions and passions go against reasoning and rational thought, they nearly always win, because they’re experience as a strong internal sensation that’s very compelling with a form of urgency, whereas clear thought is more neutral and something we seem to experience in more of a dissociated perspective of witnessing as being outside of or above the situation looking at it from the perspective of a “whole” rather than in it as a “part of it”. Once emotions take hold and grip us in some way, usually through memory of some kind that’s used to create in the present, it tends to cloud and control our thinking through a form of seductive persuasion, making it difficult to resist.

When this happens, decisions usually come as a gradual process, where once the desire to change becomes persistent, and we continue playing out the emotional dramas preventing us from implementing them, we begin having realizations about them that start dissolving the illusion we’ve built around them, loosening their grip, and they begin disintegrating and falling away. Once we have a notion as the desire to change in some manner, breaking an established pattern, it tends to steadily grow until it reaches fruition as an actual decision that we begin acting on to make it an actual reality, leaving the old behind and starting something new.

The Power of Belief

In a like manner, we can appear to have made a decision, and started it in motion, while maintaining a belief of some kind that prevents it, causes a feeling of conflict somehow, or results in what seems like the inability to take action, or not knowing what to do. Beliefs can be quite difficult to identify because they form the very basis of our experience of reality, and we often mistake them as being “fact or true”. Belief and the reality formed from it is the most basic and prevalent demonstration of the “power of the mind to create reality”. We create the experience of our beliefs perfectly without realizing that it’s our own creation, and is not real or true at all in the objective sense. Because many of them come from actual experience in terms of how we “interpreted” the events of our life by telling ourselves a story about them, we don’t realize that we actually made them up using our imagination (will). Likewise, we’re also taught certain ideas that we accepted as being factual or true, and use as the foundation for building entire networks that are all based on the same belief system, and accepting the ideas of others that were given to us and willingly adopted by us as our own thoughts. Usually the only way to upsurge a belief and bring it back into a fluid and negotiable state, is by introducing contradictory evidence that proves it wrong, one-sided, or reveals it as a skewed version. While many choose instead to argue against, deny, or ignore altogether anything that serves to shine light on the validity of long held beliefs, this too is a decision that we willingly act out and employ as the means of creating the reality it implies.

When we always act to defend our beliefs instead of being willing to consider other possibilities, we condemn ourselves to the confinement of the reality of those beliefs. When we feel we’ve made a clear and conscious decision to change our life in some way, no longer running on memory and autopilot, and are confronted with what seems like the inability to act in order to create it, or the “path to take” in moving in the new direction, it’s usually due to a conflicting and limiting belief of some sort. We know when both aspects of our mind are in alignment with each other when we make a decision that lacks any kind of inner conflict, and we feel a sense of passion and urgency in acting to create it. We don’t have to figure anything out, we’re not stumped or confused, lacking motivation of the drive to do it, but instead, from that point on direct all of our attention and energy into actively moving forward on it and systematically producing it.

Knowing What to Do

The idea of being aware of the need or ability to make a decision puts us in the position of actually creating in a conscious and intentional manner. We create our decisions by focusing and concentrating our full attention on them, and consistently acting on them in whatever way is immediately apparent. We move forward with the attitude of being and doing. It’s very natural for us to not necessarily “know what to do” or how to be when we’re stepping into something new, because we don’t have memory or previous experience to go on. All new actions and creations come to us, not as a whole idea or plan laid out in detail for us to follow, but as a desire for what we’ve chosen, and a notion about how to start. If we simply act on what we know to do while remaining focused on our intention and desired outcome, it starts a process in motion that comes as an intuitive and synchronistic unfolding where one idea leads to another, and investigating or penetrating one aspect reveals the next aspect as the “next step”. We’re often required to have faith in the fact that if we simply act on what we do know and therefore step into it and start the process in motion, that the next step will become apparent.

Stepping into the Unknown

All well laid out “action plans”, so to speak, come as the result of rehashing and reformulating past memories to form what appears to be a new idea, yet in reality, is merely a new version of an old idea. When we form a truly new idea as a reality for creating, it usually comes through a part of us that’s always been there, urging us on to “become” who we truly are as our dream for our life that we negotiated away in an attempt to conform to the ideas of society imposed on us and the need to fit in, and we step into the flow of life by embracing an inspiration that comes to us seemingly from out of nowhere (though its often been there forever), that takes hold within us, becoming relentless and persistent. Once we receive it as an intimate connection that appeals to our true self, urging us on and encouraging us, it can almost become an obsession. An idea for our life that we can’t seem to let go of because it speaks to us with a vivid honesty as a form of promise that restores hope and the fulfillment of our true purpose and mission in life.

All truly inspired ideas come to us by resonating with our deepest parts, the ones that we remain unfamiliar with while having a deep longing for, crying out to be free, shrouded and suffocated by illusions that we blindly accept as our fate, surrendering our true destiny and condemning our soul to a wasted and meaningless life. These form the big, life-altering decisions. The ones that are truly difficult to make, because in doing so, our identity and who we’ve been up to that point becomes compromised, and is no longer validated and sustained. To follow it, make the decision to surrender to our higher calling, means our entire previous life situation and roles will change, sometimes drastically, and we’ll be left scrambling, faced with the unknown, new conditions and circumstances, a new way of being that requires trust and a belief in ourselves and our inherent ability to know what to do when faced with brand new options that only guarantee uncertainty.

When we make a decision to be and do something different in our life, especially when we’re older and have an established lifestyle and habitual patterns that we’ve built our identity around, where we have no past memory to go off of, we realize that the path unfolds through the series of decisions we’re making moment by moment as we go. In this total newness comes true creativity. Every decision, no matter how minute, becomes about “who am I?” What do I want to create? Who am I going to be, here, now, in this moment? What am I going to do, how am I going to act, and what consequences will result? We start getting a true feeling for how we actually create our lives through our everyday choices and actions, often for the first time as an adult.

Once we’re cast into a life that we just sort of ended up in through an unconscious and natural process of growing up, where decisions seem to be made for us by our situation and responsibilities, and we fall into the habit of making decisions in an unconscious manner where they’re made for us or we simply accept them, and even when we maintain an awareness of what we want to do instead, we choose to give it up in favor of what we feel we need and should do. After a while we find ourselves living life in an automatic and habitual fashion where the only decisions we have to make is what to eat for dinner, or what to watch on TV, and even those decisions can be made for us by others. We can slowly fall into the reality of never having to make decisions and actually creating something new, and instead just act to maintain the habitual pattern already established and go with the flow by coasting through our life.

To make true decisions that bring about change and create in a conscious way requires a form of courage and willingness to create something new and unfamiliar. It can mean giving up security and established success, or a glorified self-image, and wiping the slate clean, starting all over with a brand new idea for yourself and your life. When we make one decision and actually act to create the reality of that decision, it naturally leads to the need to consistently make more decisions, because you’re the creator and they’re not being made for you by someone else. When this happens a new sense of freedom comes about, and you start getting a real sense of who you actually are. Anytime and unconscious process becomes conscious, we gain tremendous insights into unfamiliar aspects of ourselves that remained hidden, subdued, or just barely out of sight. Naturally with this awareness and freedom comes the true responsibility for what we create and who we become through our own volition. We can no longer dodge responsibility or blame our shortcomings on others. This realization alone can be as terrifying as it is empowering.

Many people go through their entire life with decisions that are being made for them by others, or simply complying with the general consensus and trained mindset of society. Many “fall into a situation” in what seems like a haphazard method of chance, because they were creating from an unaware state with no realization of the consequences or end results of the actions. Many start off not knowing for sure what they want to do, then as they go along just end up in situations that seem to dictate the course of their life for them, and they feel trapped, or something about it becomes more important than their freedom to decide, and so they choose it instead, going with it till the situation ends or drastically changes somehow, then, they’re right back where they started. Drifting aimlessly into an abyss with no sense of purpose or vision for their life, scared and filled with an unbearable sense of dread and insecurity. Having lived so long without the ability to create through active use of choice and will, they feel lost and confused, and as if they have no ability to move their life in a new direction. Usually, without even knowing what direction they want their life to move in. When this happens, they usually simply find a new situation that they can wrap themselves around, and continue on their way, choosing to remain unconscious in the most basic sense of the word.

Creativity

All true creativity comes through a balanced and aligned mind, where feelings, emotions, and desire are the motivating force and formative factor of thought as an imagined idea. To decide on something is to choose an idea that you then act to willfully create. You direct all of your attention (undivided mind) and activities into the fulfillment of your decision. Choice gives us a vision as a firm idea that we’re then required to create. In this same way, an artist decides what feeling they want to capture and express by becoming one with it. They envision that idea as a sensory reality in a way that invokes a love for it, and then they go about doing what’s necessary to create it. They engage in whatever course of action is necessary to produce it. Naturally this requires great skill that only comes through constant practice and a sense of diligence.

So if you’re struggling with creating what you want, or making the necessary decisions in your life to better it somehow, and you’re always going back and forth, or never actually being able to bring yourself to do what seems like a “big move”, just allow yourself to reflect on and become aware of all that comes up in relation to it as a conflicting feeling or idea. Then, go into each conflicting idea in depth in order to gain whatever realization about it that you need in order to make a true decision as to whether or not to continue with it, tweak and reformulate it, or leave it behind and quit thinking about it altogether. As you gain insight into what it is that’s preventing you from making a decision, you’ll know what other decisions you need to make first. Because decisions for change require sacrifice of some kind, they can produce a lot of inner turmoil that will need resolving in order to reside peacefully in that decision.

We know when we’ve actually made a decision because we’re no longer debating it while considering other options, and we simply go about creating it. We hold an idea firmly in our mind with no inner conflict or anxiety around what we have to give up in achieving it, and we feel a sense of purpose and inspiration in regards to it. A feeling of devotion and dedication to it fills us, and we feel peaceful and content in the reality of it. All distractions fade away and focus all activity towards producing it. We move forward with a clear conscience and a feeling of certainty, and no longer look back or miss what we left behind. We’re filled with a sense of excitement and anticipation, alive with the true power to create the life we desire in an intentional and deliberate manner. We gain a new sense of ourselves that becomes a self-perpetuating force, and we fall in love with life as our own creation and ourselves as our own creator.

Mastering your Will to Create and Transform

Many people don’t fully understand what we mean when we use the term “will”, and as a result they don’t know how to use it in a deliberate and powerful way to create. Will is always associated to choice, because anytime we’re actually using our will , it’s to move out of conditioning and automatic, habitual tendencies that we do naturally, and create in a new and more individual way instead. When we’re trained to belief systems and certain mind-sets as “group consciousness” of some form, we’re actually lending our will to others and allowing them to shape and determine us as a result. Our will isn’t our ability to “resist” things or not give in to passions, pleasure, desires, or cravings of some kind through an act of sheer strength and willpower, but rather our ability to decide on what we want to be and do, and use our imagination to form the correct “internal representation” (IR) of ideas that either make them repulsive and disgusting, or desirable and attractive.

While we tend to think that things have power over us in the same sense that they’re dictating our experience and how we respond as a result, the fact is that we shape the outer world into an internal representation (IR) that we then use in place of the actual thing or activity as a way of experiencing it. As we think about something we’re associating other ideas with it, and using our “sensory system” to embellish it with sensory qualities that invoke emotional states. An idea that’s turned into an internal reality that serves to elicit strong emotions in response to it are how we’re using our will all the time to direct our own behavior and what we participate in by desiring and becoming one with it; as well as what we don’t because we find it unappealing for some reason. If we’ve made a decision to stop doing something, and we constantly struggle to resist it and create an experience of suffering because we’re abstaining from it, it’s because we haven’t learned how to use our higher mind to direct ourselves, and we’re using it incorrectly as a result.

The body, which is what we also refer to as the subconscious mind, because it inhabits and operates it, is operated by memory, and forms all of our natural behaviors as repetitive patterns and daily rituals and tendencies. The subconscious “thinks” in pictures and is experiential in nature. This means we communicate with it and act to program it with a form of virtual memory by imagining ideas as an experience of them. Its primary motive is “self-preservation”, so all of its impulses as feeling emotional states are geared towards maintaining the status quo and habits engaged in on a routine basis. It’s primarily instinctual in nature and motivated by pleasure or pain. It moves deeper into and seeks out whatever it deems pleasurable, and moves away from or avoids whatever it deems painful. It forms, firmly establishes and faithfully maintains habits and addictions, and is nearly always craving and wanting something. All of its needs are physical and material in nature and it works and is driven by emotions, making it impulsive and urge oriented. When it doesn’t get what it “needs and desires” it causes pain and suffering through emotions and physical withdrawals, which is experienced as a form of death (no longer able to sustain itself through that activity).

The subconscious mind is the creative aspect of the mind that’s capable of shaping and producing material realities, both inwardly and outwardly. It does this by turning a feeling or idea into a reality in the faculty of the imagination. Being memory oriented, it acts to create our memories from actual experiences, replaying them as a means of continuing to create by way of them, and as the means of being fed an idea as a form of “seeded thought” that it then fashions into a reality as a form of virtual memory. The imagined idea as an original creation is formed and appears in the imagination in exactly the same way as an actual memory does. This virtual memory as an internal representation of an idea operates in exactly the same way as an actual memory creating a kind of blueprint or template as an internal experience that forms the basis for the correlating external experiences of the same kind.

This “virtual memory” is an image, scenario, or movie-like idea that’s translucent (like a reflection on glass) in nature (can be seen fully while looking at something else), and becomes our perceptual lens as a filtering mechanism that reorganizes the elements of our outer reality to match the theme and emotions of the inner one. The IR becomes a kind of template or map for structuring and navigating the outer experience. Because of this tendency to “perceive out of memory and IR’s”, we never directly see or experience things as they actually are (a part from us), but rather as we “remake them” through our perception of them. This perception based on or produced by an IR or memory, works through the same principles as value judgments and either makes something appear desirable, likeable, and pleasurable, or undesirable, despicable and unappealing, or disgusting somehow.

When we decide and say we’re no longer going to do something, but we continue to form it in our mind as pleasurable and desirable, we struggle to resist it and continue to want it. We make giving it up a painful experience and the longing for it never goes away, so we’re always “tempted” by it. If instead, realizing how the mind works, we change the IR we’re forming into something that’s disgusting, repulsive, and painful, then we have no trouble resisting it, and thoughts of it eventually go away altogether. When we no longer think about it, it’s no longer a part of us and it exercises no control over us. This is the accurate use of the will – to make a decision to take control of what’s normally and unconscious process, and inject instead the idea we want to create in its place – then change the IR of what we’re stopping or looking to transform, while embellishing and enhancing the IR of the new idea we’re replacing it with.

Internal Representations, like reality itself are formed through sensory attributes, qualities, and characteristics that either makes it up-close, in vivid color and compelling, or far-away, black and white and neutral. If we make something up-close, immediate, full Technicolor, and create it as a full sensory experience of what you’re seeing, hearing, feeling, touching, smelling or tasting, and what you’re telling yourself about the experience that gives it meaning, and you create it with very positive emotions that make it pleasurable and beautiful, you create a strong desire for it. This gives your subconscious a very compelling “memory” that it steadily move towards and into, while seeking it out and connecting with that same idea in your immediate outer environment. If you then neutralize the current idea that you want to eliminate by turning it to black and white, pushing it out far into the distance so it seems far away, and assign negative sensory qualities and emotions to it, the subconscious, being given a more desirable alternative forgets about it, moves away from or avoids the old, eventually disconnecting from it all together outwardly, and moves instead into the fulfillment of the new and pleasurable idea.

The will is the active component of the conscious mind that can make new decisions that are not a part of its formative conditioning and habitual in nature, and can rule out one idea while replacing it with another. It impregnates the subconscious imagination with the seed as a unique idea that is then grown and formed into maturity in the imagination and manifests as an experience that bridges the inner with the outer, both of which are the creation of the subconscious mind as its offspring. The subconscious mind, when not being fed by its own personal will as an intentional idea for creating, absorbs instead the will of others as mental and emotional impressions or suggestions going on around it that it uses to generate thoughts in the imagination, and not only creates the individual (mind and body) according to those thoughts, but also creates the outer experience of those thoughts as its reality.

Anytime we passively take in an idea from outside of us (thoughts of another), and we form them into IR’s as a virtual reality, and make them our own by continuing to think about them, we’re choosing (unconsciously) to manifest and give life to the will of others through us. We’re literally lending our will to them, allowing them to determine us and the reality we experience as the perceptual lens we look through. The conscious, willful mind, is what’s traditionally called the “gate-keeper”, and is the aspect of the self that decides what’s allowed into the subconscious and what’s not. It analyzes, intuits, and evaluates the information to decide whether it’s true or not, valuable in some way, or would be beneficial as a means of upgrading the mental paradigm by incorporating it. It’s the “editor” that filters information through reasoning. It’s the part of our selves that’s always actively choosing even when we’re unaware (no choice is a choice) and decides what stays and what goes. It’s the aspect of the mind that has the ability to intentionally self-create through the active transformation of old ideas into new ones.

The Dual Nature of Truth – The Relative and the Absolute

Truth, like all ideas that prevail within the material realm, is dual in nature. The entire material realm is formed by a universal (common) and personal (individual) aspect that are complementary in nature. These complementary aspects are separated from each other by degrees that that form a scale as a range of possibilities between the two that ultimately connect them. Many people believe that truth, like reality, is always absolute and objective, meaning it’s the same for everyone, and that what we call “truth” in terms of what’s true for us, is also true for everyone else. Yet nothing could be further from the truth (pun intended). Just as we have both an objective and neutral (devoid of meaning) reality, and a subjective and relative one (based on meaning) as a “personal version” of reality, we also have what we can securely call a universal and absolute truth based on Laws and Principles that govern and operate to create the material world, and we have personal truth which, in the ideal situation comes as the result of identifying and working by way of law in the practical sense, comes as the result of how we perceive things, which is what makes it “true for us”.

What’s true in the ordinary sense, is whatever we say is true and can prove or validate somehow using our mental model of the world, which is what forms our perception that we then call “true”. Truth exists on a scale of “degrees of consciousness” that serve to facilitate our evolutionary growth process from childhood to maturity. This is easy to understand when we simply self-reflect and realize that what was true, and therefore “real” for us as a part of our perception of reality at 16, may not have been at all true for us at 25. Though at 16, that truth served our growth somehow and was a natural part of our personal evolution as the understanding we formed through an integrative learning process of acquired knowledge and experiences. Personal truth exists much like a belief in the sense that we structure our reality out of it (it forms our perceptual filtering system) and so it’s constantly being validated through our experiences, because we don’t fully realize we’re creating our experiences out of our beliefs and what we deem to be true.

Universal Law is what we actually call “absolute” truth, which means it’s neutral and non-personal in nature, and operates as natural laws equally for everyone and in every situation. Truth as Universal Laws, are the very foundation for all material creation and operations, and are the same creative laws that govern the mind, which has the ability to create unique versions of reality as a personal, subjective perception, by way of those laws. So the only actual truth in any situation is the recognition of the laws operating within it, which are working equally for everyone, and are eternal and unchanging in nature. Our personal truth comes more as an evaluation of what we imagine to be facts based on the appearance and behavior of someone or something, that’s being “interpreted” by us through our mental paradigm which is what evaluates it according to perceived attributes, qualities, and meaning that we ourselves possess. Only some of which we’re actually aware of and recognize as being “of us”. As we perceive everything else we shape-shift it to match our beliefs and thoughts about it. Anything that exists outside of our paradigm, we literally can’t see, and it’s therefore not real or true for us.

Our mental paradigm, which consists primarily of beliefs, values, preferences, decisions, and memories, all compiled through how we’ve integrated our experiences up to this point, serves as a “filtering system” that forms our perceptual lens that we “look through” in order to perceive everything else. We only “see” what matches (is of the same nature) and can be explained, described,  understood in the practical sense, and validated as being true or real through our model, which is our “criteria” for judging and interpreting everything to give it meaning. We judge, evaluate, and interpret everything to be “like us”, to have the same qualities, characteristics, to play a part in the same dynamics, and be motivated by the same reasons, as the means for interpreting their behavior and actions in order understand and experience them in a way that makes sense to us. We’re always reforming everything else to be of the same nature as we are through our very perception of it. We’re only capable of seeing in other what exists first in us, because our mind is what’s doing the perceiving, and we’re literally “creating” through our perception.

To project or impose our “truth” onto someone else, claiming it to be “the truth”, and therefore an accurate observation and interpretation or opinion as also being “their truth”, is a blatant misunderstanding of the nature of their own mind. What is true for me that I readily use to guide my life and conduct, may not be true at all for someone else who has a whole different version that naturally arises and is fully supported by their paradigm as their way of looking at things. We are all the ones responsible for not only producing and formulating our own truths, but also for evolving those truths with the introduction of new information that grows and expands on them, transforming them to a higher level of understanding that’s at once a demonstration of our growth, while simultaneously facilitating it by opening our mind to be able to behold new ideas. Relative truths are more like conclusions we naturally formulate based on the information we currently have and are working with. These truths, much like scientific truth and life itself, are in a constant state of growth, expansion, and evolution based on the realization and integration of new information that upgrades our mental model.

The relative nature of truth as a personal interpretation of a perceived reality follows along the same lines as the truth behind the fact that all of what we call reality is actually “subjective” in nature. This is obvious through a basic understanding of the laws of physics as the relationship between the mind (consciousness) and matter, where the material reality is influenced by the consciousness observing and interacting with it, and changes how it “shows up” in terms of appearance and behavior to match the intention and expectation of the mind interacting with it. So every “reality” being “perceived” by the individual mind is unique to that individual as a personal creation. It’s using the same “objective and non-personal reality” as archetypal forms to reshape into a unique version of the same idea. Even if we were all quantum physicists observing what we believe to be the same reality or phenomena, the only way we would have of knowing whether or not it was real and therefore true, is if two or more people “appear” to be seeing the same thing. And even then, we can’t be 100% sure.

What we call the Universal mind or objective reality as the original creation that we’re all a part of, is archetypal in nature, which means it exists as a dynamic theme in a purely “potential state” that contains within it every possibility for creating a variation of that same theme. The basic act and art of creation that’s always going on, is that the individual mind exists “within” the universal mind, which being archetypal in nature is void of meaning, and resonates with “certain aspects” of that whole reality, which activates some aspects (the ones that are complementary) while deactivating other ones, abstracting partial information that matches its internal structure, and uses it to compose a whole reality based on partial information. Truth, like all things is based on perception which is formed out of “everything we know up to this point”, and is evolved to higher truths through the induction of new information that wasn’t previously recognizable. Once new information is obtained through our ability to perceive and conceive of it, we integrate it into our model, modifying and upgrading it to be able to perceive greater and greater forms of truth. So truth in this sense, is a living and dynamic entity. It’s not stagnate and dead.

The Universal and Absolute truth involved in this equation is based on the laws governing energy as both consciousness and matter, one of which is active and the other passive, and together they form an imagined reality that appears equivalently and simultaneously inwardly and outwardly. It’s based on vibration as a frequency or range of information that “vibrates” that same information in everything around it, activating and “bringing it out” (to the surface), while failing to stimulate other aspects which recede and aren’t a part of our awareness, that it then “organizes” into a new pattern or theme of the frequency as a specialized version of a universal idea. Through sympathetic resonance we’re only able to absorb, imagine, and comprehend what’s of the same nature as we are. Once we absorb certain aspects of a whole reality or informational field, we organize it into a pattern that makes sense to us, forming coherence as harmonious, and we see, experience, and interact with the reality of our own making, perceiving it outside of us and therefore making it real and true.

The Absolute Truth are the laws operating in the situation which have nothing to do with the outcome involved in terms of the material manifestation, but rather forms the creative process that produces the personal reality as a unique creation. These same laws of vibration as frequency that tunes us to certain aspects of a greater whole, that has a “self-organizing mechanism” inherent in it that forms elements into a thematic pattern of the frequency, reshaping it into a coherent and cohesive reality that matches and is the product of our own mind. These are the laws involved that are eternally true, because they’re the same for everyone, and are always operating in any situation as the fundamental creative capacity of the individual mind.

By understanding the ability and natural tendency of the individual to create its own truths, we will never impose our truths on them again, and instead we can come to realize the nature of their minds structure in terms of why and how something is true for them. We can gain insight into the beliefs and values and how they apply those to form their perception of right and wrong, good and bad, and truth and lies. We can come to realize what’s true for them and how they conduct themselves as a result. We can also self-reflect and gain new insight into our own “professed truths” and begin opening our mind around them, questioning their origin and validity and become more open to considering new forms of information that return us to a growth and evolutionary process of becoming more, rather than stagnating on a personal creation that we mistake for being true that limits us in some way, much like a belief does.

Whatever we proclaim to be true for us becomes a self-imposed limitation (necessary for creating it) that can often be an illusion that prevents us from seeing the very thing that reveals its illusive qualities. Whatever we say is true, outside of universal law, is really more of an assessment and conclusion that we’ve drawn based on what we know and how we’ve integrated information into our mental paradigm up to this point in time. Once we learn something new through the experience or realization of something that contradicts it, and thereby proves it to not be entirely accurate, we evolve our perception to incorporate the new information and evolve ourselves and the world around us at the same time. This is how we grow in awareness and in doing so, expand on what’s possible, and hold ourselves to greater and greater forms of truth as our souls evolution through time located within a body posed to a limited perspective within certain conditions and circumstances.
