The Monad and the Law of One – Duality as a Singularity
Posted On August 14, 2019
/ Written by Dr. Linda Gadbois
The most basic mistake we make in life comes from an ingrained belief in duality as a fundamental form of separation. We imagine that the world exists as fragmented, independent parts that coexist while having no direct relation or influence on each other. This is largely due to the fact that the unified reality as a singularity exists in a state of polarity as a dynamic interaction of complementary opposites. Duality as a primary illusion of separation is necessary as the means of creating “experiences” of our “self” in relationship to others and the entire natural world of which we are a fundamental part. What we call “reality” is only important in the sense that it sets the stage necessary for the soul to create experiences of itself “as” a specific type of person. Experiences are then interpreted to form memories that become the means of self-realization and consciously evolving itself to higher and more complex levels of consciousness.
The Monad and the Law of One
The Monad is
what we can think of as the primary law out of which all other laws emerge systematically
as a form of growth process. It’s symbolized in Sacred Geometry as a dot or circle
in the center of a larger sphere (circle), and is the same symbol used to
represent the sun. The central dot represents the consciousness that expands outward
as a form of respiration to produce an outer atmosphere of the same nature and
likeness. In terms of physics, we can view this model as representing the dual
nature of light, which is the essence of matter, as being both a particle and a
wave simultaneously. It operates in a similar manner to what we now call the “torus”
as the electromagnetic field of the mind that envelops and permeates all
physical organisms. This idea represents the nature of what we can think of as
the spirit and soul, and the physical body it creates as the means of becoming
located within the space-time continuum for a short period of time, where it
first acts to create the outer reality that it then locates itself in by
inhabiting and utilizing a material body.
The wave-sphere contains what we can think of as the universal-infinite mind as all possibilities for creation in their potential state. The wave of all possibilities is then collapsed around one possibility through what we can think of as a process of natural selection as resonance (intention for creating). The wave is then formed into a particle (physical body) that expresses briefly as one possibility within a unique set of circumstances. As the soul-mind conforms itself to the body, and the conditions and unique circumstances of the body, fashioning itself as a personality, it forms a relationship as a constant interaction with the light around it to organize it into a corresponding outer configuration of the same nature and level of consciousness. The core essence of the soul within a body is constantly expanding outward, and through a kind of filtering process reorganizes the light by activating what’s of the same qualities as it is, and neutralizing what’s not. It then absorbs only the active components through its magnetic aspect and draws them back into the center of its being where they’re integrated as the means of growing and evolving its mental paradigm.
The Dyad and the Law of Relationship
The Monad creates
a state of duality by regenerating and multiplying itself as a mental projection
of itself that’s perceived as another in order to be able to “experience
itself” in relationship with itself. As it divides and separates from itself
(same principle as mitosis) it produces an illusion of itself “as” another, and
simultaneously as a coherent outer environment. This process of self-regeneration
and division forms the Dyad (a double Monad), where the two centers are
directly connected and exist as the outer periphery of each other, forming an
An interference pattern is where two wave-forms (spheres) of the same nature (frequency) resonate and merge energetically with each other, amplifying some aspects while canceling out others, to produce a new pattern as a variation of the original pattern they shared in common. A pattern can be thought of as a combination of qualities in various measure and degrees as a formula of consciousness that vibrates at a certain frequency producing correlated physical characteristics. Characteristics have natural behaviors and functions inherent in them that determine how they express to produce correlating realities.
Resonance, Sympathetic Induction, and Coherence
Whatever formula of various qualities we exist as (usually represented in our birth chart) determines the rate we vibrate at. As we embody and bring certain qualities into expression, we intimately connect and form resonance with those same qualities in everything else. As we radiate and transmit our inner qualities we resonate with everything around us that possesses the same qualities. Resonance is where we energetically “enter into and become one with” the same vibratory frequencies around us (qualities of consciousness). Through continued interaction as a relationship both vibrations are altered and modified slightly from their original state (pattern), and over time, become synchronized by vibrating in harmony with each other forming a new pattern as a variation of the original one that acted to connect them. As we form a relationship with our self (same consciousness) in another, we act “on our self” to evolve our self into new variations as a modified formula of active (expressing) qualities.
Polarity and the Nature of
another idea that tends to produce a fundamental misunderstanding of a basic
idea. We often don’t understand the true meaning of “qualities” as states of
consciousness and our “self” (soul) as a formula of qualities that act to
produce our physical characteristics. All qualities exist in a dual state as a range
of vibration that forms a kind of sliding scale between opposite aspects of
itself that are necessary in order to create the quality as an experience of
our self that develops our character accordingly. Whatever characteristics we
develop in ourselves serve to determine our natural behaviors and what type of
reality we produce as a basic form of self-expression.
The Dyad, which is also referred to as the Vesica Piscis and “womb of the universe” out of which all reality is formed (Triad) and projected (Tetrad), exists as the Monad in a polar state (opposite spin) of both feminine (inner) and masculine (outer) aspects of the same vibratory frequency as a dynamic living pattern. All qualities are also dual in nature and exist as a range of vibration between opposite poles that form a singular movement that gives rise to a specific type of reality as both an inner experience (of self) which then forms the basis for an outer experience of the same kind. We create our character based on the decisions we make in the present that form all our actions.
We can only
“know ourselves” to be a certain way by contrasting our self with another whose
of an opposite nature. We can only create an experience of ourselves as being
“good” by how we exist in relationship with whatever we deem to be “bad”, by
how we either relate and become like, or contrast and become the opposite. We
can only experience ourselves as kind by how we relate and contrast ourselves
to what we consider to be unkind or selfish. It’s only through our perception
of our opposite aspect that we define ourselves as being a specific way and
develop ourselves as possessing desired characteristics. Every time we
encounter evil, it lays the foundation for active use of choice and will, where
we decide how we’re going to be and what we’re going to do in relationship with
it. Good and evil exists as complementary opposites of the same quality as an
idea, because one serves to stimulate and call into existence the other one.
One only exists “as” good or bad in relationship to its opposite quality.
So to ask
the question “why do bad things happen to good people”, bypassing of course
what we’re actually referring to as bad and good, we can realize that they
become good through the constant decisions their making while in challenging
situations being referred to as bad. It’s through the impact and pressure caused
by unfortunate or traumatic events or situations that lays the foundation for
making decisions as to who and what they’re going to become in response to it.
However they respond determines who they become. It’s only when in the presence
of bad that we can accurately shape ourselves to be good. One serves as a
mirror necessary for realizing the other one.
All of what we call “vices” (weaknesses and poor character traits) is transformed by choosing to employ their complementary virtue in their place. A “whole pattern” contains every aspect as a reality with multiple roles needed to produce it as an experience. Qualities form ideas that are dynamic holographic patterns where every part is an aspect of the whole, and their actions serve to create and sustain the whole. We don’t become bad people because bad things happen to us, we become one way or another based on how we enter into relationship with what happens to us and the decisions we make while in the moment that serve to define as one way or another. We can only know ourselves as being courageous when in the midst of feeling afraid. The greater the fear, the more exalted our sense of courage in overcoming it.
Strong and Weak Forces
Our soul’s energy
follows the same principles as the forces that govern and orchestrate the
material world of reality (which it’s actually producing). The mind-soul of the
individual exists as either a weaker force or a stronger one in relation to
other individuals. We all possess both active and passive aspects, and while
the ideal is to operate them consciously through awareness and intention, most
develop themselves to be one way or the other, often lacking balance. When two
people come together in a relationship of some kind, one clearly becomes the
dominating influence over the other, and as a result acts to take control of
the will of the other.
often thought that males are dominant over females, where they assert and lead,
and their female companion supports and follows, the fact is we all have both
feminine and masculine aspects inherent within us that we utilize in different
ways. A woman can be just as dominating in a relationship as a man can be.
Gender is not the determining factor in whether or not someone displays either
dominant feminine or masculine qualities. Many men have dominant feminine
energy, and many women have dominant masculine energy. The term dominant simply
indicates which one they’re “in” most of the time or as a general rule, which
also determines who they’re attracted to as an intimate and passionate
relationship. Attraction only occurs between polar – complementary opposites.
There’s never an exception to this, regardless of gender. Even in homosexual
relationships one plays the feminine role as the energy they utilize most
often, and the other plays the masculine role.
In what we consider healthy relationships that are harmonious and serve to grow and evolve both people, there’s a dynamic exchange of passive and active roles based on the activities being engaged in. Under certain circumstances, one is better suited to take the leading, dominant role, and the other allows and complies with them. Then, based on different circumstances and activities, the other one may be more qualified to take the dominant role, while the other participates and benefits from it. We usually employ our masculine energy when going out into the world in professional activities that are competitive, and then relax into our feminine energy when we come home to our family and private life. Masculine energy tends to be assertive, self-oriented, analytical, and competitive, while feminine energy tends to be compassionate, group-oriented, intuitive, and nurturing. Most life skills that are effective on both the personal and professional level require a harmonious unification of both energies simultaneously.
Reality is a Mental Construct of the Soul
that’s difficult to grasp in the practical sense is the fact that all of reality
as we’re capable of knowing it exists as both objective (non-personal) and
subjective (personal) simultaneously. This is usually due to the fact that we
mistake the soul for being the body, personality, and identity formed as a
material being. All reality is formed through the dynamic series of
relationships formed between three aspects and three levels (dimensions) simultaneously
as a cohesive and singular act. What we refer to as the soul exists as a form
of “medium” between the upper plane of pure consciousness in its potential and
unformed state, and is what acts to draw spiritual qualities known as
archetypes into itself as a sphere of specialized consciousness, and shape it
into a material form. This material form shaped in the mind is then projected
outward and reflected downward into the lower plane of material forms as one
possibility for the manifestation of a universal idea.
exists in a polarized state (symbolized as mercury) that vibrates at a
frequency that can access the lower regions of the higher plane in its most
exalted state, and the highest region of the lower plane to birth the material
reality inherent in the upper plane. The individual soul is “constructed” out
of the essence that it creates through the frequency it consistently produces as
a personal creation that it then uses as the means of evolving itself. It works
through the same principle as DNA does by taking two strands of complementary
information and combining them to form a new one that exhibits the traits of
both parents in different degrees. The soul is represented as feminine because
it draws in the seed of the higher spiritual plane as an archetypal idea, and
through a process of gestation adapts it to its current energetic structure that
imbues it with specific physical characteristics. It then adapts and modifies
it into a singular possibility that can be naturally birthed through the
current conditions and circumstances of its physical body and its specific
location within time.
The vibration as pure, unadulterated ideas of the spiritual plane is too far apart to form resonance with the lower plane, and therefore requires a medium frequency that acts as a transducer in order to manifest as a material form on the lower plane. Spirit doesn’t have the ability to act and create directly on the lower plane of a material existence, and can only act in the world through the medium of the soul in order to affect it. There’s no such thing as divine intervention that acts independent of you and in spite of you. God, so to speak, only acts in your life “through you” as your higher soul.
spiritual plane is comprised of archetypes that provide a kind of prototype or
thematic template for creating an infinite number of variations as personal
creations of the individual soul. It exists in an unformed state that can only
be accessed and utilized by your higher soul. This is where we get the saying
“God only helps those who help themselves”, because it’s your soul as your
energetic essence accumulated and built up over time that vibrates at a high
enough frequency to access and absorb the higher powers of the spirit. Our
higher soul in turn acts to impregnate the imagination, which is likewise the
medium of the mind that exists between the higher plane of the human soul and
the lower plane of the animal soul, and serves to deliver a message as a
feeling, vision, and inner voice that directs the subconscious of the body to
take action on the idea, and as a result, produces it as a reality.
drawn down in its potential state as an intention and desire for creating as a
reality undergoes a dynamic series of adaptations that modify it into a form
that’s unique to the individual applying it as a means of creating. An
archetype is adapted to the mental model of the human soul, which is then projected
in its modified form into the mind and imagination of the personality, where it’s
adapted and modified further, and then it’s adapted in the imagination based on
how it’s going to be applied in order to produce it as a reality. Once its
manifest as a reality, the soul reabsorbs it as an experience that’s then
“drawn back up into the higher soul” as the basis for forming a memory of
itself as the expression of a universal archetype.
The creative process comes by way of drawing in a seeded idea that’s then developed in the imagination by forming new combinations (Dyad) to produce a unique variation that’s then used as a template for projecting into the lower sphere to create as an experience of reality. The soul produces its own experiences that become the memory that it uses to shape it itself as an individual. It acts on itself to evolve itself through active use of choice, imagination, and will. The soul produces endless variations of itself that serve to reformulate its essence. The universal law (which means it operates on all planes simultaneously) of vibration works as a polarized movement between an inner and outer pole as the respiration of the mind. This flow of intelligent energy works by the same principle as an electromagnetic field that simultaneously expands and contracts organizing light-essence through a filtering system to be of the same idea. Our inner forms the vibration of the outer as a complementary pattern by influencing it to express in a corresponding manner as a variable, then absorbs it as an experience that serves to influence the inner into a modified version of the original.
The World Soul and the Individual
What we have come to recognize as both an
objective and subjective version of reality comes by way of a planetary soul
that provides the environment for the individual soul to create experiences of
itself. It’s the union of souls as fields that exist within even greater fields
that vibrate in harmony with each other as the means of co-creating a joint
experience of a shared reality. It operates by the same principle as light
existing simultaneously as a particle and a wave, and the holographic principle
where the part contains the information inherent in the whole, and the whole
consists of its parts. It’s where the “parent pattern” (Dyad) produces fractal
patterns as a process of self-replicating on different scales and levels to
produce the same idea in unique variables, both of which are states of duality
that function harmoniously to produce a singularity. The two complementary
aspects work in harmony to produce a functional third.
mistake is made in perception when we fail to realize that the Earth, like all
stars and planetary bodies, is actually a living, sentient being as a soul that
vibrates at a specific frequency and forms Nature as an objective reality that
all other souls experience as being separate from them, while also forming the basis
for creating through a consensus. All vibration has a holographic
(3-dimensional) pattern has a self-assimilating mechanism inherent in it that
organizes and condenses light into a certain type of reality as a global
environment. This is what we experience as the collective unconscious as the
unified field of the material world (subconscious) that unites all planetary
beings within the same basic and neutral version of reality.
As Humans we’re born into the manifestation of the Earth’s soul as the objective reality of Nature that provides the stage for producing personal manifestations as subjective versions of the same reality. While we can draw in an archetypal idea that we resonate with, we use the same overall reality to produce a unique variation by how it’s adapted to our mental paradigm and modified accordingly. As we create unique variations of the same overall ideas, we are subject to our own creations and they serve to shape us through the integration of the memories we form out of them. Our reality is our offspring because it always comes as the union of multiple planes to produce a coherent whole. This principle is illustrated through the Myth of the god named Kronos as devouring his own children, which were symbolic of the Four Elements that make up reality. We first form a union that allows for a new experience, then we absorb and assimilate our own creation as our perception and interpretation, that we synthesize to modify the whole.
The Universal and the Individual
The Law of
One (Monad) illustrates in very dynamic terms that we’re (our soul) always
drawing on the ideas of the universal to produce the individual to be of a
similar, yet modified nature. The inner core acts to organize and reconfigure
the outer reality to be of the same nature. The outer manifestation is then absorbed
as an experience and used to reshape the inner as a unique variation that acts
to evolve the energetic structure of the individual soul, which then forms the
perceptual model that alters the outer world to take on a slightly different
form, and again absorbed to upgrade the mental paradigm birthing it.
either taking in ideas of the physical plane produced and being projected by
others throughout history (as the collective unconscious), or we draw from the
higher planes of novel, archetypal ideas in an unformed state (principles), and
act to create truly new and unique ideas. There’s a constant movement that’s
represented by a 90 degree angle as an “L” shape, where we either draw down
ideas in archetypal form as principles from the spiritual plane (vertical line)
and reform and project them to create in the material plane (horizontal line),
then reverse the process and absorb them into the soul on a higher plane as
memory or itself.
degree angle also represents that whatever plane we draw on in order to create
(horizontal or vertical) we use to shape ourselves (soul) to be like in nature,
bonding ourselves energetically to that plane. When we shape ourselves
according to the ideas and opinions of others, we fail to realize our true
ability as a higher soul to draw on divine ideas by embodying virtuous
qualities, and as a result degrade ourselves to our lowest form as an
intelligent animal. Whatever we identify with as an experience of ourselves we
shape ourselves to be of the same nature. We’re always either identifying with
our Higher Self as a creative, individual soul, or as a part of a group mind
shaped by the opinions of others through our formative conditioning. Either
way, the choice is always ours.
