Human consciousness - 101 Part One - Are we living in reality?
What is reality? Can it be defined? I would say not other than through experience. I would say what we see and experience on a day to day basis in our society is as far away as it can get from our true matured nature. Sadly, few aspire to reach higher levels of consciousness and explore greater realities than what we experience on a daily basis but why is this?
Most people are lulled by mainstream media, politics, and meager distractions and never look any further than the consensus or the public opinion. Most people have a fear based complex in which they feel the need to be politically correct or they will not be accepted in society and I believe this is the biggest stumbling block that humanity is currently facing. I also believe that it is a deliberate creation or control of the mind descendant from the government as we all know the etymology of that word means to govern the mind.
It is this crutch that allows people in power to remain in power and the power structure to live on. We are not presented with esoteric truths, We have mostly exoteric explanations for why things are the way that they are, but what does this really mean? This means exoterically speaking the explanation for certain things do not typically follow logic or reason. Exoteric explanations for things do not resonate with our intuition. They are just paths of false or allegorical knowledge like fairy tales that have no core essence to them or that are not thoroughly or rationally examined as to discover the deeper meaning. The esoteric explanation for things is the hidden or deeper meaning which follows extremely perfected knowledge and reason and links us to the subconscious and the greater world that most people fail to uncover.
It is this separation of wisdom of outer from inner that clogs the spiritual and intuitive channels and creates the stranglehold on society that we see and feel every single day of our lives. It is these insecurities that are created due to our lack of understanding truth because we do not have the discipline of mind to think properly or logically to separate illusion from fact, or from just generally a greater understanding or awareness that is hidden and latent within us all.
Most things that we see or hear have nothing to do with spiritual truths. What we hear on TV is entertainment. People exploring physical limitations through sports and also in the news. On the news what we hear is very dumbed down nonsensical information that does nothing to enlighten us and more or less only inflicts more illogical thought patters in our lives by way of fear or false or fake news stories altogether created to further bring down the consciousness of the observer,
This continues to work because people want the easy route in life. They want to feel accepted and to fit into the mass consciousness but as we know those who ever made any real impact in life were always ridiculed and never took the general path in life. They were always the individuals that were either recognized after their time or persecuted during their reign. This is normally the path the adept faces when seeking deeper knowledge coming from a place of ignorance. This is also why so many people reject esoteric knowledge because it is a path of pain and hard work, most of which people are unprepared for or would rather reject altogether. The martyrs were always the ones that went against the status quo.
The inner path or the esoteric path is one that the seeker must overcome pretty much all fears in life to accomplish. It involves mastery of the mind and using it to create reality rather than having reality dictated for you. Most of the saints, prophets, avatars or deities became one on some level with this higher consciousness knowledge.
The path we all walk in life is unique to each and every one of us and at the end of the day cannot be judged, We are here to experience what we want whether we contribute to the downfall of ourselves and society in some way or we serve to elevate consciousness, the choice is up to us and souls and we serve as a part of the whole. Unfortunately in this realm it is easier to fall than to ascend. Easier to destroy than to create. Which is why for the most part what we observe based on our current understanding and exoteric sciences and religion, we all live in this cycle of death and rebirth and we are constantly in a state of struggle and survival. Little do we know that this is not all their is to life.
There is a greater truth and that greater esoteric truth is eternal life. It is heavily intertwined with exoteric stories that are found throughout many religions. None which clearly outline truly how to achieve these states of self realization. The only way truly knowing how to do this is by close self examination and scrutiny and adherence to our own innate beings and energies. Then and only then can the reality of eternal life become a reality. We have to face the inner truths and hidden natures of our consciousness to truly recognize who we are as beings.
Of course religions provide us with rules and are a general handbook for morality, however we know that over the ages religions and the pure and initial teachings are not held in such high esteem and mostly have become perturbed and distorted due to those who wish to have power over others and cannot fully be relied upon. Yes the core teaching shine through, but exoteric teachings often times take us further away from the parables and deep mysteries of religion than we care to admit and further often lead to fundamentalist viewpoints that lead to the opposite of what the original teachings were meant to convey.
What is to be said of personal experience is not my intention to judge. Each walk their own path but a good rule of thumb to remember when seeking truth is that all teachings must coincide with logic and reason otherwise they are misleading and a lie and will ultimate lead to division. We see this across the world in the two major religions of Islam and Christianity. The is very little unity and we see very few Christ like characters walking the earth to date. Very few resemble and represent the truest teachings of the holy prophets of these religions.
In fact most of the religions to date emphasize on a coming messiah and for the most part instruct the followers to wait on this religious figure rather than undergo the process of self examination required for the ascension of consciousness to lead into new awareness.
My place in writing these pages are not to bring religion into human consciousness. My views in religion and the views of others need to be separate here. My intention is to look at the driving force of the human condition and that is the will of the individual. I will briefly reference religious aspects but only as to strengthen my focal point on the process of esoteric education and in relation to creation and manifestation in general.
Human consciousness - 101 Part Two - Prerequisites for ascension
As discussed in part one the will and intention and acquisition of knowledge is the path of the adept in overcoming the exoteric mental mind prison created for humanity. The esoteric path is one of a Gnostic. The Gnostic sees the world as a trap as it is weak and feeble and enforced by an overlord many term the demiurge. In many religions followers believe in this figure to be God but actually is not. It is the being who makes you feel less than perfect, guilty and in need of admonishment.
This is essentially the source for which all of the struggle emanates from in humanity. From matter and from the adherence to anything less than inner knowledge, illumination, logic and reason. The God that many aspire to behold is actually much greater and more all embracing than which many religions profess and teach and which many people know or can know. The true essence of oneself and esoteric understandings draw from the inner reservoir we are all connected to and that is the subconscious.
The greater inner realms and the greater inner reality is something we all share as humans and draw from on a regular basis automatically its just that most do not realize this. We have been told that dreams , which are the main and simplest aspect of our subconscious are simply only thoughts playing themselves out while we sleep from the daytime and this is simply not so. Our dreams and subconscious are the essence of who we are yet we fail to realize this simple fact within us all. The whole main and integral part that binds us together is our dreams. It is the common bond between us all yet we seek outer or exoteric answers to an esoteric truth that is active in all of us for 8 hours a day our whole lives.
Dreams are not the totality of our subconscious however. Dreams are just what is apparently going on beneath the surface that we can all acknowledge as being something we have experienced. There are many more ways in which we can experience the subconscious like meditation, trances, hallucinogenic substances, yoga, astral projection, out of body experience, deja vu and also commonly reported near death experiences. Other experiences like synchronisities and the paranormal are other examples that relate to the subconscious. Psychic experiences and other supernatural abilities also emanate from the subconscious.
So how do we really get the subconscious to work for us? Well we do this by first understanding the main mechanisms to which we function are and those are our will and intention. Everything we do while positive or negative are a result of our will or intention. From the time we are born into this world and are beginning to crawl or from the time we are fully grown our will is something we are born with and is always with us causing us to evolve and strive towards mastering.
The thing with our will is that it is so much greater than we can imagine and if we as humanity in general were all aware of this, we would be an enlightened society in no time. Most, however are asleep to the fact that we are all powerful co-creator beings and settle for just doing repetitive menial tasks for a paperback return as money for our time and energy. This is the reality for so many people although this is not how we are meant to live. We are meant to live from the mind and the heart and we are to use the two in tandem to utilize the energies of the universe to bend to our will.
All of us on some level or another are already doing this, but for the most part are wasting our power by giving it away to someone else or we are otherwise just not consciously aware of it.
How are we giving our conscious power away to others you ask? We are doing that by letting others educate us from a very early age and indoctrinate us rather than learn to think and act for ourselves using logic as our highest form of understanding. Instead we are using coerced into neglecting the fact that we are all connected to an infinite consciousness and are fed information we are meant to regurgitate without , for the most part any real crucial examination of what we are being told. Our mind and our bodies have limitless potential but instead of rationally choosing the path to unfolding this within ourselves we are living by the unexamined part of ourselves and doing what we are told so to speak. For the most part that is all anyone is really capable of due in part that they have not known any different way to think.
So how do we think to get the subconscious to work for us? This is the ten million dollar question and for many it requires many years of research, training and discipline. From my experience it comes from knowing or from direct internal experience called gnosis. It is from having or drawing from connections that originate from within on some level or from some connection to the subconscious that connect to "waking" reality.
Not everyone can or will be able to experience this right away. For most people may have experienced fleeting notions or experiences that they have not been able to make a connection to but the whole point is making the connection to the experiences that you have here and there if at all and forming a larger world view or dream view. It is the essence of becoming a master creator or master builder. This is an actual term and description for a mystic or one who wishes to bridge the gap between being awake and being asleep or more specifically being subconscious while being conscious and being able to fully create and manifest any reality you deem fit. This is also realizing your soul purpose and living your purpose as a co creator or being one with God. This is also the path to the ascension of the soul which so many people talk about and also can be described and becoming enlightened.
Generally speaking the fastest way and initial step to making the connection to the subconscious is by changing our perception. As we have discussed our perceptions are highly influenced by society and media and need to change in order for us to become free and awaken to a deeper understanding of self. To change our perception we have to realize the key that everything happens for a reason. We have to begin seeing the positive in life and viewing everything that happens as a glass half full scenario because that is how God really intended it. By beginning to practice this we begin to change not only our perception but our energy and auric field which will open us up to becoming the magnetic beings that we are. A good resource for helping oneself change perception is the law of attraction by Abraham Hicks. Once you have undertaken the practice of changing your perception on a level of more than 50% of the time you will start to recognize synchronisities and manifestations that have to do with thoughts you are thinking coupled with your intention. You may also start to notice interesting or unusual dreams. Often times an experiencer will notice the onset of master numbers such as 1111 222 333 444 555 and so on and so forth. These are more signs that help to guide you and inform you that you are on the right track and the link to your subconscious is being established.
Human consciousness - 101 Part Three - Living The Dream
Previously we touched on dreaming, intuition and knowledge. There is a connection that needs to be made here in order for us to ascend to higher levels of consciousness. The first being is that all consciousness is dream consciousness and our subconscious is connected to our waking consciousness. The two do not exist independently of each other. We just think that they do because of our conditioned perception and I can prove this. How you may ask, well continue reading.
The way that we can know this for absolute fact is when we fall asleep we are still conscious. Anyone that has ever had a dream knows this that our consciousness lives on. Anyone that has a lucid dream knows this even better. All that is happening when we are dreaming is we are shifting our focus away from the here and now and then a new reality emerges. Those of us who have ever experienced precognition via dreaming know that time and space do not really exist. They only do because of our focus and our belief and mostly due to fear or stress.
Fear and stress tend to prevent us from seeing past the illusion outside of us. Fear and stress also can prevent us from dreaming or seeing past our present situation. In order to get a greater vantage point the two must be eliminated. Previously we touched on the two subjects but now we can take it a step further. Fear and stress are simply indicators that we are not perceiving our reality properly and we have filters that are preventing us from aligning our perception and energies with the desires world we want to see outside of ourselves. So in order to be free of stress and fear we need to let go! Let go of anything that causes us stress and shift our focus. Just like we do when we dream.
What happens when we dream and what kind of principles exist in the dream world? Well the answer to that is , the same principles as our waking reality. Our thoughts and intention manifest our reality. In the dream world it is a bit more pronounced however, so to live the dream in the waking world we have to simply do what we do when we fall asleep. Let go of our current in front of our face perceptions, stresses and burdens and imagine. When we imagine or day dream, we align our energies and focus positively to a desired reality. So if we can do this when we sleep and we can experience realities that are more desirable for us, logic follows that we should be able to do this when we are awake. When we gain enough practice doing this while awake we should start to have lucid dreams regularly and eventually the line between waking and dreaming should merge into one reality.
Remember that all that is happening when we dream is we are shifting perception or focus. Many times when we go to sleep stressed about something we tend to dream about it. Sometimes when we go to sleep about something or thinking about someone we tend to dream about them too. Even further many brilliant people that have lived on this planet have received answers to things about what they need to know in dreams. How did they do this? Using the principles explained above. They allowed themselves to realize that the answers are all within themselves and intended to know something and allowed it by getting out of the way so to speak and not existing in fear or worry and eventually the answers came to them. It is all about shifting focus and perception by letting go. Letting go equates to the path of least resistance.
The path of least resistance is the path we all need to adhere to. Anything less than that is taking us into a reality or dream that we may not necessarily want to experience. When we let go and allow the path of least resistance into our lives internally, our external world usually takes the same shape as what is going on within us. Actually it always does , if we understand and recognize the as within so without principles. If we are feeling stressed out our outer world is usually no more present than our inner world, but what we must remember is that there is no difference between the two. Everything that is on out the outer is a reflection of what is happening on the inner. Close our eyes to the undesirable circumstances of the world and create a new one within just like what happens when you fall asleep. It works every time.
Get to the point where you act and feel as if you are dreaming all of the time. That is the goal because in actuality it is the truth. You are dreaming. You always have been dreaming. We have just been lead to believe that we are not and even when we die we are still dreaming as our consciousness goes on. Our consciousness remains. If you have ever had a near death experience or an out of body experience or astral projection. This can all be recognized as true. So then with all this knowledge in mind we can begin to live free. Shifting our perception is the answer. Live like how you feel before you fall asleep. Live like you are just about to fall asleep all of the time. In the state of hyper consciousness. This is the best way to live the dream. You need to be able to bridge the gap between fear and subconscious. The less fear you have the greater the link is with the subconscious. When the link is strong with the subconscious then you have alignment and your waking reality will start manifesting as fast as it does within a dream or lucid dream and everything you experience in a dream can be realized in our waking life. This is one of the biggest secrets there is. If you can learn to master this, life is your oyster.
So what have we learned? Perception is reality. There is a laundry list of things in this world that will draw us into undesirable circumstances pretty much always created by other people. Sometimes we get drawn into useless drama we don't want. How did we get there? We got sucked into it? How do we get out of it? Withdraw from the situation at hand. How do we dream when we fall asleep? Shut our perception to our waking reality. How do we manifest a new reality? Shut our perception to our current state of reality and "image" - "in" a new one. Continuously imagine this new reality by building it into your new reality step by step. Taking the pieces of information that come to you intuitively and that excite you and constantly add more information to it until the bigger picture unfolds. These pieces of information are like stepping stones one leading you to another until finally you arrive at your desired intention. The longer you hold your perception either perceived or imagined and the more excitement and positive energy you feed to it the faster it will become a reality.
Time to empty my mind of all its useless clutter it has archived over the years because I don't know how much longer I will be here. I can't let it all be for nothing.
I've pretty much decided this will be the place where I will vent. I have been known to be well with words at times. My posts will not always be grammatically correct as I am not writing a novel or an autobiography. I just don't have time for that but I will use this platform as a place to hopefully contribute something to the world. What that may be I do not know yet but hope to find out.
My plan is to enter at least one entry per day. As of beginning these journal entries my life is in an uproar. For the past 3 years it has been nothing but chaos. A complete mess. I am not going to pretend I am something that I am not. I feel very unhappy, unfulfilled and uncertain about the direction I am headed in. Nothing really makes any sense. It all seems so pointless. Daily I am considering ending my life because I feel trapped. No real desire to do anything with my life as far as a career. Everything just seems so pointless. So instead I will write. I have a job and a means of keeping a roof over my head but its a shitty existence.
It seems at times in my life everything has went well for me and other times everything has went wrong. I've spent long years developing and building myself up, only to have it all come crashing down. I hit the time in my life where I was supposed to be on top of the world and at my peak but instead am reduced to nothingness. I got so far and in the end it never really mattered.
People only really want you for what you have. When you have something, you will attract the types of people who want to take it from you. It;s a dog eat dog world. Why strive to be something, anything, when no one really knows you or cares who you are, but just what you have?
Materialism is fun and all but the means by which we attain it is detrimental to ourselves, others and the planet itself. We are living in an unsustainable world. Our greed seems to be slowly killing us all. We are losing our souls as a result but to what end? We have to connect to our heart. Earth is an anagram for heart, but we are the furthest away from anything but the heart. Those who are supposedly the most Godlike are in fact the most hypocritical and furthest from what they claim to be. Killing one another and dividing in the name of religion and some God. Those who supposedly love you hurt you the most. it's deplorable that we live in such an upside down world. To me we are closer to hell than heaven. Maybe this will change but I highly doubt it. It just seems to feel worse and worse with no real change in sight.
Growing up I always felt a lack of purpose. I was always anxious but never knew why until later in life. I had a series of unfortunate events follow me around like the plague striking me one after another slowly picking away at my soul. Over the years it brought me to my knees. I had a near death experience is the best way to describe it and thought I found the truth, but in the end lead me only to more misery. People who I thought meant something, meant nothing and turned into my worst nightmare.
I was shown the reasons for everything and a great future, but none of it happened. No one cared for the truth. No one cared or desired to seek or explore any truth. People were more self centered and concerned about themselves and manipulating others. I met some people who told me that they knew things about me. That I had some sort of destiny or some future with them. They told me they had seen me in their future. I too had the same vision but after they told me that they abused me and disregarded me like rotten garbage. Who does that to someone? I know. People that live on this planet. Not only that, these people labeled me crazy and after making me believe something legally restrained me from realizing it. Truth is they only hurt themselves. I know how miserable they are. They dug their own graves. They will end up where the rest of us will.
I started seeking the truth after that. If there even was such a thing. In and out of religion all I witnessed was hypocrisy and lies. Question anyone's belief system and you are the devil. Inconsistencies in reason and logic in a dogmatic belief? Well you can go straight to hell. Such is the world and peoples level of ignorance. Little do they know what goes around comes all the way back around.
I sought many different avenues. Put on many different personas. The giver. The protector. The Abuser. The spiritualist. The adviser. None of it really meant anything. The only thing that ever felt right was in my heart. In meditation. Being alone. Purity of thought and mind. It was then that I made the biggest leaps in understanding and faith. It was then that I learnt the most about myself. About the hidden world within. The hidden mysteries. Free from the noise of the world I have always felt focused, secure and sovereign. Being a highly empathetic and introverted individual has its advantages, but if you go against the grain you will suffer greatly.
This is what it feels like when you want to love somebody but you can't because you know you are going to be captured and controlled by overwhelmingly terrible and despondent energy. You can't love the world and the people in it because it will bring you down with the ship. Quite a terrible feeling to know that in the sense that worldly love or what we know of it can never really be attained because it was never really real in the first place. The only real love we can have is self love, spiritual love or love from our own heart. The rest of it is cluttered in energy based off of problem, reaction, solution based experience and nothing more. The only choice we really ever have is choosing to live a lie and settling or risking it all for what we believe in. Eventually if we don't choose the world chooses for us. Then we become trapped and ensnared by those people around us who continuously encroach and then there are our possessions.
It's nice to feel things but not things of the world. Its nice to feel the depths of the spirit of self and unconditional love, problem is it doesn't exist in the world. The only thing that exists in this world is cultural love. Love of a cultural mindset or love that is expected of you or others. Try and love and respect yourself and your own path and the type of resistance you will face in that undertaking almost not even worth it in the end. At the end of the day you will be brought to your knees in the conscious goo of the matrix balance being the key but always evasive due to ongoing distractions that never cease to exist. Sovereignty: an indispensable commodity.
