The Vesica Pisces is what’s called the “womb of life”, and is represented in sacred geometry as the Dyad, and in other symbolic systems as the Yin and Yang, or masculine and feminine aspects of a greater whole. The Dyad, symbolized as a Monad or mind-sphere that separates (or regenerates) from itself, and projects outward to form the illusion or appearance of itself as another, as someone or something outside of and a part from itself that it then enters into relationship with as a means of experiencing and thereby knowing itself. The Monad, as a single sphere or energy field vibrating at a specific frequency, enters into relationship with everything outside of itself that’s of the same frequency, and through the interaction of “like qualities”, develops itself through those shared qualities by producing experiences of itself “as those qualities”, applied, and reformulated to form a new variation.
The mind (represented as the Monad – circle with a dot in the center) is a field of subtle energy that vibrates at a specific frequency. A frequency is a cluster of interwoven smaller frequencies that are all correlated, coherent and complementary in nature, and act through an accumulative affect to form a quality and level of consciousness. All subtle energy as vibration is consciousness as qualities that propagate as ideas, thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions, that are all of the same corresponding nature, and act to bring the invisible (idea) into a visible, sensory experience as its expression. The individual mind, which vibrates at a specific frequency, has a self-organizing mechanism inherent in it, that acts to stimulate matter in such a way that it brings out and emphasizes some qualities and aspects, while causing other to go dormant or recede and fade into the background, unnoticed. It does this automatically by perceiving the outer world and forming a unique interpretation of it based on what matches and is therefore “turned on”, and what doesn’t and is thereby “turned off”, in much the same way DNA formulates a new pattern as a selection of physical characteristics out of two strands of complementary features and information, forming an offspring that’s comprised of complementary aspects of both parents to form a unique individual. Our mind operates along this same principle in how the internal nature stimulates and reformulates the outer reality, forming it into a new pattern as a variation based on complementary aspects.
The Dyad, which represents the one dividing to become two, and creating the appearance of another as an outer reality that’s comprised of the same frequency or consciousness as the inner self (represented by the inner dot), which exists on the outer periphery of both, forms an interference pattern as the overlapping area, which is then reformulated into a new combination, by canceling out some shared features, while enhancing and intensifying others, forms the Vesica Pisces as the womb or portal out of which emerges an actual material reality as the complementary opposite of the internal reality that’s combining with it and reforming it. The outer reality takes on it’s appearance based on the mind perceiving it. How it appears is organized through a natural process of selection and rejection, at the energetic, vibratory level. This action of the inner on the outer is naturally produced by our “perceptual lens” which forms an interpretation as an individual form of expression that reorders the elements of the outer world to take on the same patterns and living forms as the inner world. The inner world of the individual mind, exists in relationship with the greater mind of the external world, and perceives in it only what matches and can be produced by the paradigm (patterning as a holographic model) that’s interacting with it.
The outer material world exists as the greater mind that has all vibratory frequencies inherent in it as pure potential. What is activated, brought out, and formed into one potential as a possibility is based on the interaction as resonance with the individual mind existing in relationship with it. This new reality as “how things appear” to the individual doesn’t literally change the outer material world as seen by others, but only as seen by the individual perceiving it. Because of this, in order to change how the outer world appears to us, and the nature of how we experience it, we have to change the mind as out inner world that’s acting on it to create it. As we change ourselves, we simultaneously change how we perceive, and what appearance things take on as a correspondence. We see in the outside world only what corresponds and is of the same nature as the inside world. By working directly with our mind as our internal nature, we change how we experience the outer world. All transformation comes from the inside out by alternating our vibratory frequency as our character and internal nature.
Our mind, which is synonymous with our soul, is formed based on qualities that we integrate through practice and the experience it brings. Qualities as states of consciousness, or states of mind, that are embodied and intentionally employed, form our perceptual lens that we look through and determines what we see and act naturally to “bring out” in everything around us, changing how it appears to us, and creating an experience of ourselves as “being” that way. Through the experience of being a certain way, we acquire that experience as memory that’s integrated through the actual experience of it, and serves to shape our character by way of it. Our character as our inner nature and way of being, is our vibratory signature, and expresses by forming the outer world to be the stage for the story our character naturally tells. Our character as our way of being, is what produces our “story” as a consistent and ongoing form of experience where regardless of what the actual outer circumstances and events, we restructure them to create a consistent experience of the world.
Our mind vibrates at a specific frequency as a quality of consciousness that perceives the outer world through an interpretation that makes it mean something, and then, based on the meaning we give it, we tell ourselves a story about it, and through our own story, first birthed through our vibratory paradigm, we create our experience of it, that then shapes us through our own self-created experience. This self-creation as self-expression, keeps us locked into the same vibratory frequency, often throughout our lifetime (or many lifetimes), because we don’t realize the power of our own mind in producing our experience of reality, and because it comes as an experience of the outer world, we imagine it’s happening “to us” instead of “by us”. We think that in order for us to change, we feel a victim to our circumstances, and often helpless to change them, because we don’t realize it’s an effect, and not a cause. What happens in life as a greater reality is beyond our control and not being produced by us, and so, when we work in our own life to try and change others or our outer circumstances, we continue having the same type of experience, and we’re left realizing we have no control over what goes on outside of ourselves, but we have absolute control over what goes on inside of us, we have only to become aware of it, and practice managing our own state.
The outer reality as we perceive it, acts as a mirror for the inner reality and serves to show us, through direct experience, hidden (unknown) aspects of our own nature. Everything we naturally “see in others”, and our environment, also exists in us, that’s why we’re seeing it and able to produce an experience of it. Whatever we see (perceive) we act to stimulate (resonate), awaken and make active, and “bring out” in everything else, then shape it into a dynamic as a story-line being enacted by how we interact with it to co-create it. We produce the natural behaviors of our perceptions, and how we’re being with people, how we treat them, the nature and attitude of the interaction (relationship) itself, creates our experience of them, and develops them through those qualities to “be that way” in relationship with us. Perception is resonance that can only enter into and effect what’s of the same vibration. As it enters into (is absorbed) that same quality of consciousness in others, effecting them by making it active and bringing it out in them, shows us, in no uncertain terms, what quality as a way of being we’re actively expressing through. Our active properties stimulate those same properties in them, making them active in response to us. This mirrors back to us our own characteristics as a behavioral dynamic that’s formed by a thematic story-line. Because this is all happening at the subconscious level, meaning we have no direct awareness of what we’re actually doing, or the power of our own mind to produce subjective experiences of what seems like an outer reality, we often don’t realize what it’s showing us about ourselves, we don’t realize our power to transform through influence that reformulates character traits.
Once we realize that the outer world is taking on the appearance of the inner world, and understand it as showing us what our soul’s vibratory signature is, what story we’re always in the process of telling by how we rearrange the elements available to form our pattern, we can begin working with our own unconscious tendencies to reformulate them by intentionally deciding to, then employing the complementary and opposite qualities that will recognize our own paradigm and develop our character to different means. Once we’re able to see ourselves in the full light of day, and we realize we’re always the one creating our experiences of life, we can begin effectively transforming our own mind by reprogramming ourselves to new qualities and ways of being. When we can see ourselves clearly, gain realization around and fully own our own tendencies, we can change by simply deciding to and working with counteracting and counterbalancing qualities.
All vibration as a pattern, exists in polarity as complementary opposites that form a progressive scale that moves from one extreme to another, as positive and negative aspects of the same overall idea. When we are expressing negative traits that are destructive and detrimental to our well-being and happiness, we can act to transform them by employing their opposing counterpart that’s complementary in nature. Hatred and prejudice can be counterbalanced and transformed by intentionally employing reverence and compassion in its place. Whereas hatred sees only differences and judges based on those differences, love sees only what’s similar and seeks always to understand. By intentionally entering into a new state as a quality of consciousness that forms a different relationship with others and the outer world, we form a new relationship with ourselves, and begin cultivating new aspects of ourselves in place of the old and through the experience they bring, we begin reshaping ourselves by way of employing a new vibration.
All reality is born out of a relationship between the individual and the universal, the inner and the outer, the masculine and the feminine, producing an offspring as a new combination of shared qualities. Consciousness as vibration, only resonates with the same vibration in everything else, and forms a consistent experience of reality as consistent variations of that pattern or theme. To change our experience of life, others, and the outer world, we have to first change the vibration of our own mind and inner nature. As we think and imagine we create our own experiences of the outer world as a correspondence to our thoughts. The elements of the outer world itself doesn’t change, just what we “see in it” changes. Other people don’t change, we change how we enter into relationship with them, and as a result, our perception of them changes.
If, for example, we employ a general theme of thinking other people are stupid, then we only see in them what can be made into “stupid”, or we interpret any number of behaviors to mean they’re stupid. This naturally comes from the fact that we were made to feel stupid somehow as part of our conditioning, which we build defensive mechanisms around, and one of the ways we prove to ourselves and others that we’re not stupid is by making other people more stupid than we are, or we interpret the same behaviors in them as being stupid that we employed when we were told that we were stupid. Anytime we deny and refuse to own something about ourselves, we project it onto others, and see it in them instead. Because we always awaken in others the same tendencies we ourselves possess, if we simply observe our own tendencies as judgements of various sorts in an objective and detached manner, we can see clearly hidden aspects of ourselves that we’re in denial of, because all perception is projection. All reality (tetrad) as we can know it is produced by the projection (dyad) of our own mind (monad). Whatever reality we create inwardly becomes the thematic template for how we reorganize the outer world as a correspondence.
