The Archetypal Nature of the Spirit, the Creative Power of the Soul and the Nature of the Self

One of the most fundamental errors we make in how we think about things comes when we start from the premise of duality and separation. Any hypothesis that’s based on a concept of separation while referring to our essential self or spiritual nature is an illusion in the most basic sense of the idea. I can remember a few years back attending a conference with what we could clearly call new agers, and one of the main ideas being expressed at that time was that our soul is not our “self”, with the “self” meaning who we are in relation with our body, personality, and ego formed out of identification with the body. When asked who you were the “right answer” was to state that you were a divine universal being, or something of that nature, instead of saying your name. They were teaching duality in the most basic sense and didn’t even seem to be aware of it.

This is a common error created through a lack of understanding of the principles governing different planes of existence, illustrated through the Hermetic axiom “As above so below, and as below so above, in the miraculous workings of the One thing”, and the concept of “eternity as immortality”. When we fail to understand fundamental universal principles that apply to all life, that misunderstanding comes through and is equally reflected in everything we think and do. While the idea of universal principles forming the basis for all life may appear to be based on a “belief” because it seems to offer no real “facts” to support it, this is also based on what it is we’re referring to as “facts”, and how it is that we know if something is true or not, and therefore “real”. Within the invisible principles that accompany and serve to organize and give life to the material world resides one of the greatest paradoxes and pervading mysteries of all time. How do we “know” if something is real or not?

I have often found it amazing if not a bit bewildering how science is always on a group quest to find “the theory of everything”, as though it’s going to come through a mechanical model of some kind or as the result of some kind of measurement or mathematical equation, without seeming to recognize that all science and reality itself is only “knowable” through our ability to perceive it. Society itself is being trained to rely on some kind of scientific study conducted by an expert to tell them what can only really be known through direct experience. The common denominator to all life and the whole “cosmic mystery” is the “mind”. All science arises out of our ability to think about things while wondering about new possibilities. Reality is only real and therefore “knowable” through our minds ability to perceive it. Every single mind of every individual perceives a slightly different and highly personalized version of what’s called an objective or shared reality that’s common to everyone.

This amazing feat of infinite possibilities for a single idea is produced by a dynamic series of “filters” that are used to sort through a vast and infinite amount of information inherent in the invisible field of information that surrounds us. Our mental filters serve to bring out and accentuate some features inherent in the whole, while subduing and excluding others to form a “new field of organized information” which is as a “personal creation” formed as a mental construct. How we experience reality changes based on the formation of new filters and the ongoing transformation of existing ones. These mental filters, also called perceptual filters, are formed out of beliefs, values, preferences, and memory. These filters form our mental paradigm, which is what we use as the means of shaping our reality by how we select, interpret, and organize specific aspects of any situation in order to create how we “experience” it.

Our mental paradigm is comprised of a system of mental filters that form our “perceptual lens” which is what we “look through” as the means of experiencing reality. We only see, process, form as a conceptual image and therefore comprehend what can be constructed, explained, described, and confirmed using our paradigm. When we understand this idea in the most basic sense we realize that what we tend to call “reality” is formed as a mental construct and projection of our mind. Nothing “out there” exists independent of what’s “in here”. One is the continuation and extension of the other as a mirror image (polar opposite). Everyone takes what exists as a universal field of potential and through a process of natural selection, reshapes it into a personalized, subjective version as their “experience”. All reality is the result of perception, and all perception forms how we experience our self “as” a reality. We don’t necessarily “manifest” material reality itself, but rather reshape it through our mental model to resemble us, and serve as a primary means of self-expression that provides us with a mirror into all aspects of our mind, many of which are hidden from us in the ordinary sense.

Our mind, like the light that makes up reality, is invisible to the senses, and we typically only “perceive” and form an entire reality out of a very small part of the light spectrum. We only see a small fraction of what’s “actually there”. There are many aspects of reality being played out all around us, within the same space, which we don’t recognize or perceive directly with our physical senses. This is because our senses are what allows us to perceive the world around us. What this tells us is that like the individual reality created using our mental paradigm by recombining key elements inherent in the whole to form a new possibility, what we perceive at any given time is only a small aspect of a much, much greater whole.

What we commonly refer to as the “soul” is equivalent with the mind, both of which are invisible to our senses. We can look at the mind as being a universal principle and the soul as being what works through the mind to produce a material image of itself. Our soul is our personal consciousness built up through experiences of itself acquired through the body. The Soul creates reality as the means of experiencing itself as its own creation. We only gain knowledge of ourselves through direct experience. The soul utilizes the mind as a means of constructing a reality of itself, which it then uses in order to experience itself “as” as a material being. It doesn’t do this by simply designing the body that it then inhabits as a “personality”, but by creating the “whole reality” of the body necessary to experience itself in a specific way.

The entire outer reality of the personality is produced as a mental projection that’s naturally formed out of our formative conditioning. Our initial conditioning takes place as a child through a process of adaptation that modifies and adjusts our paradigm to match our environment. In this way we can produce a unique variable of the same core essence and evolve ourselves according to a specific set of conditions and circumstances. The soul isn’t comprised of the personalized version created through our body, personality, and identity within the body, but by taking the personalized experience created and returning it to a universal, archetypal state. The human soul is archetypal in nature and is comprised of unique combinations and potencies of different qualities to form a new and unique whole. The process of creation is represented by the infinity symbol as a perpetual movement between parallel planes that are complementary in nature.

 We draw on a universal archetype as the means of producing an experience of our self as an outer projection, and then reabsorb the experience created and turn it back into a universal state as our soul’s memory and essence. Our soul is comprised of universal memory that is metaphorical and thematic in nature, because this is necessary in order to be able to adapt it to any situation as the means of creating more of the same type of experiences. Our soul is universal in nature and is what’s creating the entire material plane of manifestation as an individual. It’s holistic in nature, and exists in a whole, unified form on its native plane.

Subtle Body

Our soul designs what we call the “light body” or “etheric double” of subtle energy which serves as the blueprint for not only constructing and animating the body, but for the entire reality produced “through the body” as a mental projection. It creates the world through which it experiences itself from the inside out. It’s in a constant state of transformation based on the energy its constantly absorbing from everything around it as the Earth’s soul. This is done through the principle of polarity as a form of electromagnetic pulsation and respiration. We’re always drawing in the energy from around us that’s of a similar nature to us, and metabolizing it to adjust our mental model. As we metabolize and assimilate new energies (information) we equalize ourselves in terms of energetic composition to match or be the same nature as the environment we live, grow, and experience ourselves through.

All creation that’s of an intelligent (highly organized) and complex nature requires a blueprint, model, or prototype in order to be systematically produced, reproduced, and maintained. Our light body, like our physical body which is a mirror image of it, is constantly undergoing a process of regeneration through the birth, maturity, and death process. The outer reality of organized light of the Earth’s soul (Nature) is mentally constructed by the individual as an emanation. Our energy field is not confined to the body, and extends quite some distance from our body in more and more subtle forms. While we tend to think that our “self” as our “I” (identity) is not formed as an individual by our soul, and that our body is somehow separate from our mind, soul, and spirit which give us life, it is in fact the creation of our soul, and is in a constant state of growth and transformation. This also forms the illusion that “consciousness” is somehow produced by the brain and nervous system, instead of what’s using it as a vehicle for traversing and working within the material plane, which exists fully “within it” as an essential part of it.

The soul is what gives life to the body and acts as the “organizing principle” of all material forms. Every single material form (light body made of photons) is an emanation of One Light. The Soul is the electrical force that “charges plasma” and organizes light (photons) into a distinct pattern. It coagulates light to form a ghost-like image of gases (astral fluid), which then becomes more densely concentrated as liquid-light (etheric substance), which is used to organize the entire lower material plane. It’s the life-force that operates and runs our body through electrical impulses that set a chain-reaction in motion as a neurological process of equilibrium. Our mind as an “energetic state” (frequency) works through our brain, nervous system, and endocrine system to adjust our body to the same state. Our brain and nervous system is what you can think of as our command center for operating our body.

All “thought” comes as electrical sparks that stimulate various parts of our brain to form a kind of encoded message system that’s translated into chemical messengers by various parts of our body. A spark ignites, awakening and setting into motion a mental function, which then follows a series of pathways, similar to how lightning propagates through the atmosphere, forming a whole orchestration of correlated activities. As consciousness is transmitted through the brain and nervous system as electrical impulses, it stimulates hormone production of the endocrine system where it’s translated into orders for organizing a synchronized event, flooding the bloodstream with the chemical instructions necessary to synchronize all systems of the body to produce a unified motion as activity of the whole being.

It’s the mind operating through the brain that creates our reality as a conscious state, and for this reason creates the illusion of consciousness arising from the brain. Spirit comes “through the body” and projects reality from within outward. In order to change the outer appearance of reality in terms of how we perceive and thereby experience it, we have to work to change our mental paradigm that ordering, organizing, and producing it as a mental projection. If we try to change our experience by working on the outer material manifestation we usually end up simply creating the same type of experience, only in a new way. This is where you get sayings like “no matter where you go, there you are”.

The outer reality only changes in exact proportion to the inner reality. Our inner reality, formed as a mental construct out of memory, serves to organize the substrata (energetic matrix) out of which all material phenomena arise as an emanation. We change the inner by studying and constantly taking in new information that we conceptualize as an inner representation that brings new realizations about the same thing, causing a paradigm shift. As we imagine ideas in detail, developing them the more we think about them, they become a set of instructions for our subconscious to produce as an outer experience of the same type and kind. As we apply knowledge to produce an experience of it as a reality, we absorb our experience and it becomes our soul’s essence. When we stop learning and growing, we become stagnate and complacent, and begin dying. We’re always both expanding and reforming, or we’re contracting and dying, becoming smaller and less capable of adapting.

 So to say that there’s “no self” is an anomaly that comes out of a fundamental misconception. The “self” is actually the creation of the soul necessary in order to experience itself in a specific way as a material being. The self isn’t fixed as the form itself in a completely limited state, it’s constantly fluctuating and morphing as a continuous growth process based on an overall plan as the life naturally produced by the soul. The entire material plane is the creation of the soul and is what provides it with an “experience” of a certain kind, necessary in order to “know itself”. What we call the spirit exists on a higher plane of vibration as archetypes in an ideal and potential (unformed) state, which are drawn down by the soul on a medium plane through sympathetic induction, and utilized to form an image of itself that is then projected into the lower, material plane in order to experience itself. The soul is comprised of a vibration that forms the lower frequency of the higher plane, and the highest frequency of the lower plane. It acts as a circuit or conduit for spirit to manifest in form as one of an infinite number of possibilities without being changed from its original state on the higher plane.

This is what’s meant by the idea that only what “descends” from heaven “returns” or ascends back into heaven. Universal archetypes are “ideals” (perfect) that are drawn into the mind of the soul where they’re blended and modified according to the nature of the soul and used to manifest in the lower planes as a personal creation. In their original state archetypes are “pure and unmixed”, and become an amalgamation when mixed with the consciousness of the individual soul. The experience created by the soul of itself in form is then reabsorbed as experience of itself, where it’s then translated into a metaphorical theme as a memory of the soul. The personal aspect is transformed back into its original universal state as archetypal essence as the memory of the soul that comprises its constitution.

All memories acquired while in a body are synthesized to form a new whole as the soul’s essence. The soul’s essence forms its character and moral summation as it’s “nature”, and is what enters into another body and restructures itself into a new variation based on all the elements used to form a new series of combinations as relationships. The same essence as well developed characteristics formed out of accumulated memory that’s built-up over time, undergoes another transformative process of adaptation and modification that forms a whole new expression of the same essence. Just as the soul structures itself as a “whole reality”, it also restructures and evolves itself from one incarnation to the next. Different genetic factors, living conditions, environment, race, culture, family, and era produces a whole new series of relationships that stimulate us in different ways, developing our personality accordingly.

The soul is in a constant and never ending state of transformation and evolution. It’s fluctuating energetically based on how the inner aspects and qualities interact with those same energies in the outer projection. We’re always acting “on ourselves” in and as everything else. What we perceive as a reality that’s separate from us is actually more of an extension and continuation of our mind and soul as the same idea being played out on different scales. Our outer world is created by our subconscious mind, which is also the group mind shared by all life on Earth. It’s constructed as a “whole mind” rather than a fragmented one, and contains aspects of ourselves that we’re normally unaware of (our shadow), which is why we don’t recognize them as being our own.

The object to life in recognizing our “true identity” as the creator of our reality and life’s story comes by the “inner and outer” becoming a unified whole that we perceive in a fully conscious way. This only comes by forming an awareness of our unconscious aspects, also referred to as our “shadow aspects”. These are the aspects of our self that we judged harshly for some reason, refusing to express them, and denying having them as a result . . . even to ourselves. This renders us unconscious in the most basic sense, because we perceive our shadow nature in our outer world without realizing it. As we form an image of ourselves in a split, fragmented way, as separate from ourselves, we also form our outer reality in the same manner. As we deny and repress our shadow aspects because we’ve judged them to be “bad” or “wrong” to have, we simultaneously begin forming an image of ourselves out of a fragmented state of only owning what we deem to be good, and admirable, forming what’s referred to as our false ego.

Our ego is an illusion of ourselves created out of a fragmented mind. We’re provided with a mirror into our hidden nature through our outer experience of reality, but don’t realize it because we’ve denied having those traits to ourselves, and as a result, don’t have a clear memory of them, so we don’t know they’re ours. We don’t realize that the reason we form a “reaction to them” is because we possess the complementary aspect in its latent state. We bring ourselves back into a harmonious and unified state of equilibrium by learning how to relinquish judgment of ourselves “in” others and harmonize them into our whole being as a result.

We judge the same traits in others to the exact same degree that we judge those same traits in our self, causing us to go unconscious while still projecting those traits onto others. We don’t “give people” those traits, so to speak, but rather perceive the same traits in them and react to them as a result. Once we realize that the outer world is a mirror reflection of the inner world in a whole and unified state, we can use it to self-reflect and follow our judgments back to their root. Once we recognize those same traits in our self and embrace them by harmoniously integrating them into our experience, and finding an appropriate expression for them, we act to heal ourselves and become whole again.

As we experience compassion as understanding of ourselves, our judgment of those same things in others fades away, and it becomes a harmonious part of our whole self and our perception of reality. This is what Jesus was elucidating when he said, “when the outer becomes the same as the inner, and the inner becomes the same as the outer, you’ll have entered the gates of heaven”. What we call heaven is the native plane of the soul where everything exists in a unified state of self-awareness and harmony. Once we identify our outer reality as a reflection and projection of our own mind, we touch on our true identity as a higher divine being that’s acting to create our entire worldly experience as an experience of our self.

All reality is formed as a manifestation of One Source. All reality is formed out of a cosmic seed of spirit that impregnates the individual soul as it also impregnates the soul of humanity as a whole. This is why the spirit is often referred to in masculine terms, and the soul in feminine terms. Reality as we’re capable of knowing it through our perception is the offspring of the soul and spirit. The Trinity is illustrated in mythological terms as the husband and wife, who together produce a child as their offspring. The spirit exists in a purely potential state as an ideal that’s drawn into the soul as a form of “seed”, and gestates it turning it into a “reality” as the combination of both manifested as a material matrix. In order to manifest as a new form, a new seed has to be drawn in through resonance and allowed to incubate as a process of adaptation that shapes it into a modified version that’s harmonious to the soul’s paradigm, where it can be incorporated logically into the whole structure of reality as a natural part of our soul’s perception of itself.

Form as material manifestation is the expression of spirit brought down the planes of density (destiny) by the soul. The spirit is the “ether” as the unified field of intelligence in its potential state that permeates the entire universe, informing it. The human soul is of the Astral Plane of Light and Formation, and the body-template produced through their copulation, forms the etheric double or subtle body, all of which are invisible to the physical senses. In order to work with our physical manifestation, we have to work through our subtle light body which is formed by our mind and spirit. This is what’s being referred to when it’s stated that we have to work by way of the laws that govern the higher planes in order to over-ride and work directly with the material plane. We have to work with the laws governing our mind, which are primarily the laws of mentation, vibration, and polarity, all of which are correspondences of each other.

“11” – Universal Justice, the Law of Cause and Effect, and the Nature of Karma

In occult sciences the number 11 represents the principle of universal justice as the equilibrium of complementary opposites to establish balance and harmony. It’s symbolic of what’s commonly called “karma” as the absolute law of cause and consequence, also referred to traditionally as the “golden rule”. Its purpose is to teach and instruct us through our own actions which produce both immediate and long term consequences as our ability to create our reality. This is a double “1” (Monad) as the balancing scales that brings an equal or greater return on all our actions and deeds. It represents our ability to learn from our own actions and the inward capacity for self-direction and regulation. In the “Book of Formation”, the special action assigned to Justice is “work or action” that’s designed to teach and instruct.

Justice is represented by Libra, ruled by Venus, which governs the inner world of the imagination (Key 3), where our subconscious deductions from experience become the seeds of karma, and forms the basis for all of our actions. As we create through our own actions and deeds, we simultaneously learn and provide ourselves with a form of instruction. Through purely unconscious processes we form constant interpretations of experiences that produce all of our natural perceptions and automatic behaviors. How we perceive ourselves and the outer world comes through our personal style for processing and organizing information, which forms the basis for all of our actions. Our mental model as our perceptual lens is formed initially as the result of our formative conditioning as mental states, dynamic patterns, and tendencies that have become habitual.

Mode of Consciousness

The mode of consciousness associated with Justice (karma) is “faithful intelligence”. The subconscious is a faithful servant to the conscious mind and produces the realization of whatever idea it’s germinated with. The feminine aspect of the mind is impregnated with the seed (idea) of the masculine aspect and produces the reality of the idea as its offspring. This not only reveals to us that most creations result from habitual unconscious patterns, but also that whatever it is that we imagine as a reality with intensity, is actually a “request” for a personal creation. We act on ourselves to program our own subconscious through imagining ideas as an actual reality and experience, “instructing” it (our self) to produce more experiences of the same nature and kind. As we replay memories over and over in our mind, we’re instructing our subconscious to produce more of the same types of reality, usually without realizing (being aware) that that’s why we have the same type of experiences over and over again.

Vices or virtues are equally deposited in the faithful intelligence of the subconscious where they augment. As we interject an idea into our subconscious by vividly imagining it with sensory detail, it gestates until it becomes the foundation out which we perceive the same idea outwardly as its realization. The subconscious faithfully reproduces and multiplies whatever idea it’s given as an imagined reality that’s experienced in an emotionally intense way. It uses existing memory as a kind of metaphorical theme for creating more of the same type of realities. It takes a symbolic idea in its potential form and ripens it to become the motive for our actions. As we create ideas as an outer realization through a form of projection that produces a new variation through a process of adaptation, we then reabsorb them through the experience they provide and shape them into memories that act in turn to reprogram ourselves with more of the same type of experiences. All reality is subjective in nature and is formed as a self-perpetuating process of self-realization.

The Law of Cause and Effect

Cause is manifest by effects, and effects are proportioned to their causes. All action is a cause that produces an equivalent effect. Nothing is affirmed or made real until it appears outside of us as a realization. We apprehend the cause of our own actions by the effects contained in the energy of the cause, by means of the Universal Law of Correspondence and Analogy. Once an idea is established as an outer effect that brings realization, the effect then becomes a cause that produces an equivalent effect “in us” through the experience it provides. All of our deepest motives are revealed through the reality they create as the nature of our experiences. It’s not necessarily the idea itself that provides a creative template for the subconscious, but rather what internal force is “motivating” us in creating the idea. The conscious mind provides the material form as an idea, and the subconscious infuses and grows it with an equivalent emotional force, and together they form the “reason” for the creation.

The Law of the Monad (Mind and Soul) demonstrates the principle of how the inner center (nature) produces the outer sphere of reality to be of the same nature through an electromagnetic respiration as an outflow and inflow of consciousness that creates on multiple levels and scales simultaneously. Magnetic respiration is where the inner nature of motives that produce outer actions populates the atmosphere surrounding it, providing it with a reflection of itself through its own works. Through our own creative abilities, we create either heaven or hell for ourselves. There’s always an electromagnetic pulsation of the soul where it projects itself to formulate its outer reality, constructing it to be of the same nature (pattern) as it is. As it forms the realization of itself through its outer environment, it then draws the realization back into itself where it’s reformulated into a memory. Our core being is what forms our perception as interpretations that provide us with the means for experiencing our self. All of what we call curses or blessings are self-administered and produce their consequences invariably, and every action by its nature produces effects analogous to its motives, extent, and direction.

Thought, Word, and Deed

Thoughts that aren’t translated into speech don’t produce realization, and speech that’s not backed by action remains idle as imagined fantasy. Ideas are only made “real” when they are acted on to produce outer experiences as the realization of the idea. Many people form a false image of themselves that they never act on to make real, and it results in a form of delusion as a false front disguised to hide their true nature. Thought formulated into speech forms the basis for the action necessary to produce it as an outer realization. The realization gained from an action reveals what motivated it.

Many people hide their true motives (often even to themselves) out of fear of what it means about them, and try to cover them up with false proclamations that act to contradict their actions. What we say doesn’t reveal anything about us; it’s what we do that demonstrates our true character. What we act to create in life only comes through our actions, not idle thoughts as fantasies that only serve to delude us. Whether vice or virtue, destructive or constructive, we are fully responsible for anything we say or do, and the realities that result from them. There is no such thing as indifferent acts.

Justice signifies active administration of law as balance, poise, expectation, precision, impartiality, and equity. It’s not based on value judgments of right and wrong, or good and bad, but merely serves to reveal the inner constitution as what motivates actions. Every action has a motive as a subconscious formulated interpretation. As we think, speak, and act, we create the reality of our motives, which serves as a mirror into unconscious aspects of ourselves. Our subconscious is programmed initially through our formative conditioning, which forms the basis for all of our motives, interpretations, and natural behaviors. As we perceive something through our mental model we reformulate it by saying “this means that”, referencing and associating it to a memory of a previous experience of a similar nature, and we act accordingly. Through our conditioning we act on ourselves to repeat the same patterns as a habitual way of perceiving and create the same type of experiences over and over again.

Our Life Story as a Theme for Self-Creating

Our (self-produced) memories serve to form our natural way of perceiving the world and sets the stage for the story we begin telling ourselves as a means of using the past to interpret the present to mean the same thing. The meaning we give something determines how we experience it through the story we tell ourselves about it. Our story about something is how we explain, describe, and justify it as a means of attempting to understand it. As we create the outer realization of our thoughts and motives as an experience of our own making, we then become subject to them. We use our own self-produced experiences to shape ourselves by how we identify with our own creation as an ongoing story we’re always in the process of telling ourselves about things. In this manner, we’re always shaping everything else to be like us.

By realizing that our outer realizations are providing us with a mirror into our own unconscious mind, we can become more self-aware. Anytime we bring something that’s operating at the unconscious level in our life into conscious awareness, we provide ourselves with the opportunity to transform it in whatever way we desire. By staying unaware and repeating the thematic patterns of our conditioning, we live our life out of karma and remain unconscious of our true nature and our ability to self-create by way of our own realizations. We fail to realize that we’re not our personality or conditioning, but the “means” through which it becomes our reality. Our soul is the author and producer of our life story as the means of simultaneously creating and experiencing itself by way of its own creation. We are the soul that’s producing reality through our perception of it, not the result of an objective reality that’s somehow being done to us by an outside force or contrary power.

Summary

By becoming self-aware and using our outer realizations as a mirror into the hidden aspects of our mind, we can step into our true power to self-create by learning how to seed our subconscious with ideas we want to create as our outer experience of reality. We can realize our own undesirable traits and delusional interpretations and begin acting on ourselves to transform them into more beneficial and meaningful ones. Once we realize that things only mean what we make them mean by how we interpret them, we can detach from our inner narrative as our story about things, and begin forming new ones. Once we become aware of habitual dynamics that we’re drawn into unconsciously as a reaction of some kind, we can begin neutralizing them by re-framing them and making a conscious decision as to what we want to create in their place.

As we become aware of the patterns produced unconsciously through our conditioning, just the awareness alone dissolves them, and we’re left with a new awareness of our ability to make a decision as to how we’re going to create instead. As we begin making new decisions and actively directing our subconscious on what we want it to create, we begin taking full responsibility for our self and our life. Our inner core as our nature and character is what acts to produce our outer perception of reality and our “self” through that reality.

By changing ourselves as our inner character, we change the reality it naturally produces as a fundamental form of self-expression. We don’t change our life by working on others and the outer effects themselves, but by working on ourselves as the inner cause that’s producing the outer effect as a basic form of self-perception. As we begin working on ourselves to reshape our character and redirect underlying motives, our outer reality and perception of others changes as a direct correspondence. Justice as the harmonious balance of the inner with the outer is a self-administered form of creation. In every moment we are the sole creators of both our self and our perception of others, and our inner and outer reality, which exist in polarity as complementary to each other. The outer is an extension and continuation of the inner and contains both conscious and unconscious aspects of our self. We can come to know the unknown aspects of ourselves by how they exist in relation to the known aspects, both of which form the basis of our outer perception of reality.

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.

The Nature of the Monad – “The Primary Law of the Mind for Self-Creating”

The Monad can be thought of as a sphere of consciousness that’s energetically charged (programmed) with specific types of information as its potential for expression as a process of growth and development. The Monad represents a mind-field as a morphogenic field that flows in an electromagnetic toroidal pattern that’s circular in nature. It’s like a seed that contains all the information as its potential for expression, that’s activated in a synchronized fashion as a growth, development, and evolutionary process that it undertakes systematically. This “information” can be thought of as a form of vibratory DNA that’s not fixed in itself, but exists as a frequency of oscillating vibration that forms a dynamic matrix that also undergoes a constant form of evolution based on how it bonds and blends with the body and everything in near proximity of it. As we blend energetically with everything around us we exchange properties and qualities as the acquisition, build up, and dissolution of consciousness. The mind starts its evolutionary process through the relationship it forms with the body that it also designs and then inhabits, by programming it with the memory of the soul that shapes our basic personality and sets the basis for all of our conditioning. Once the initial structure has been set in place it then develops and evolves the original formula of memories by exchanging, absorbing and assimilating, and discharging information as consciousness with others and its environment. Every influence is the experience of a vibration outside of us that’s stimulating and calling forth in us the equivalent vibration, then developing it through the interaction that takes place forming a new pattern as a behavioral dynamic that reformulates our basic make-up based on new emphasis and amplitude or intensity of qualities. The most basic form of evolution comes by keeping us in a constant state of harmony with everything in our outer environment where we live as a dynamic part of a greater whole. Only a certain amount of our potential is activated and developed into patterns as living dramas or interactive dynamics by our formative conditioning (childhood), while others remain latent and unused. This unused potential can only be activated through an outside stimulus or need of some kind. This unused potential exists as qualities we possess, while often not fully realizing we possess them. Under the right conditions we can willfully access our latent potential, or we can recognize it and “decide” to access it and intentionally develop it by using it in a conscious manner within our life, which strengthens it through a form of continued conditioning. The well-developed aspects of ourselves (character traits) that have already been formed into patterns (interactive dynamics) through how they were expressed also continue to transform into new patterns based on how we use them or apply ourselves in new ways, forming new behaviors that tell new stories and create new experiences that simultaneously transform our identity by reprogramming us. electromagnetic_field Intelligence as living information or consciousness, is vibration as patterns that are always undergoing a constant form of transformation through the basic law governing the Monad of resonance (with like energy outside of us), sympathetic induction (absorption and synthesis that modifies the vibration into a new vibration as a combination), which ultimately forms coherence producing a new pattern as a physical expression or behavior. This oscillating, living pattern of the torus is doughnut shaped and expands from its center outward blending with everything in its immediate environment and absorbing from it whatever is of the same frequency (range of vibration) as it is. It then turns back on itself and draws the information gathered back into itself (its core), integrating and assimilating the new information to upgrade the entire system, while discharging all energy that no longer vibrates in compatible range, eliminating it from the system as obsolete, and then expands again, repeating the process. This constant respiration of energy is going on all the time at the unconscious level as an energetic interaction with everything around us. This same integration of an infinite number of biological systems is happening throughout nature and all of life simultaneously as a dynamic, living matrix or correlated information. When we lack awareness of spiritual law and our spiritual-energetic nature, we undergo transformation without any real awareness of what’s happening or why. We exist in a basic state of unconsciousness and as a result fail to direct and determine our own soul development. Instead of being self-determined, we are determined by others and the conditions and circumstances of our life which we imagine to be separate and apart from us. By waking up, and becoming aware of what’s happening to us and by us, realizing the laws that govern our energetic nature and learning how to work in the world by way of them, we can begin consciously creating ourselves by determining what we blend with, take on, and become like, and of course, what we don’t! We can begin realizing how we’re being influenced by everyone and everything around us by recognizing how we feel in relationship and response to everything. By recognizing what’s happening within us at any given moment in terms of how we feel we can realize what’s being activated and developed in us because of them. We can become aware of what we previously engaged in without any real awareness. We don’t ever really acquire anything from others or the outside world, it simply acts to “awaken and make active” the same qualities in us. souls_sphere_ We’re always modifying our vibration as our consciousness through a natural and ongoing energy exchange between our inner and our outer environment. While this is natural and happening all the time, as we become aware of it we can begin learning how to regulate what we allow to enter us and what we allow to stimulate us, rise up and take hold in us, and how we express through the perceptions, feelings, thoughts, and activities it forms as a result. We can stop the stimulus before it takes hold. By recognizing the “nature” of whatever it is we’re being  stimulated by we can make a decision regarding it. We can gain an accurate awareness of how certain people serve to develop us to be “like” them by altering our vibration as our state-of-mind to match theirs. Where we take on, begin feeling, thinking, and acting out of the same quality of consciousness and perspective, and as a result, become the same “type” of person while acting out the same type of dynamics. We can realize which people, situations, and environments produce positive effects, and which ones produce negative effects, and make decisions for our own development accordingly. We can realize that outside influences act to grow and develop us by way of the nature of their influence, which we are actively absorbing and blending with, allowing it to modify our vibration by taking on the same qualities and attitude and forming the same perspective, just through the nature of the interaction itself as a relationship. Through self-awareness of our own mind as our energy system we can intentionally “choose” which relationships we maintain and nourish, and which ones we either remove ourselves from completely, or only maintain in a casual and periodic fashion. We can begin staying awake in our own life and taking a more conscious approach to our own growth and development by intentionally forming relationships that will act to grow us in ways that we want to be grown. We can begin creating by way of natural laws and impose a direction on our life by becoming the captain of our own ship sailing the stormy seas of self-discovery, realization, and actualization of a higher ideal that we use as the means of navigating the unknown with a sense of faith born out of confidence and a deep pervading belief in our own abilities.
