The Truth of Isms and Ideologies

Written by Mathew Naismith

Bare with me on this, it gets quite interesting and informative, This is probably one of my most impartial posts I've ever written, at first this isn't apparent though.

Atheism: While on a particular site, it was obvious I was being bullied by an atheist who didn't want to know if any of my perceptions were valid or not, basically, from the start this person had a preconceived perception, nothing I was going to say was going to change this fixated perception based on atheistic ideologies. There was no point from the start in a continuous discussion on anything remotely intellectual that was of my perception but I persevered. 

Even when evidence was obtained from various sources backing my perceptions, I was still called a liar, in actuality, once I provided such evidence, this person became even more noticeably aggressive to the eventual point of using harassment and bullying tactics. The sources I supplied included, quantum physics, psychiatry and philosophy perspectives endorsing my perceptions. The main problem was, if I was remotely correct in my perceptions that a consciousness can indeed exist outside of the brain, it immediately  questions the beliefs of atheism. Now this brings us to atheism being a belief and even a belief system that is purely based on fear alone.

I then posted a post inferring that atheism is a belief system by using the definition from a dictionary as follow, "The doctrine or belief that there is no God". What followed was astonishing to say the least, they were defending their atheism in the same exact way that a religious person with extreme ideologies would. I am talking from actual experiences here. Lets collate some evidence together to get a better picture of this.

1: The dictionaries state clearly it's of doctrines and a belief     

2: These atheists defended their atheism to the same degree a religious person with extreme ideologies would, stooping to unbelievable depths to do so

3: If their science is unable to prove the existence of God either way, this clearly means atheism isn't based on facts but assumptions and speculations

4: Seen as atheism is not based on facts, it must be based on assumptions and speculations  

5: To have such a blind faith in assumptions and speculations, means atheism is also of  faith. This of course depends on the faith an atheist has in regards to pure assumptions and speculations. In this case and other cases where I approached atheists on the same matter, they reacted as if they had utter blind faith of atheism which is purely based on, not facts, but assumptions and speculations.

6: Faith clearly infers a belief. Definition of faith: A strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny. Is not science controlling our destiny?

7: Fear: A belief in an ism (atheism) opposing another ism, such as religion, denotes a reaction that infers fear. Why follow an opposing ism if one is not fearful of another ism?

8: With the reactions I had received from atheists on this site and other sites, they fear there atheism being questioned in anyway what so ever

9: If atheism is the be and end all, why express so much fear resulting in uncivil behaviour? If atheism were of facts, what would they have to fear when atheistic beliefs are questioned? Atheists obviously know that atheism can be questioned but they still stick to atheism as if it's the be and end all, a clear depiction of utter blind faith and dogmatism.

I think all the evidence that has been collated here, infers that atheism is indeed a belief system and based purely on fear, a fear that purposely stays ignorant to any other perceptions not of atheistic beliefs because of fear. Consider this, don't atheists often criticise religion for expressing these same traits that atheists obviously express as well? You can then add hypocritical to their biases. I should point out in all fairness, not all atheists are like this, some atheists, very few it would seem, are quite open minded, they just don't believe in a God or divine entities but I have found out some of them do believe in a consciousness existing beyond the brain.      

Science; like atheism, is purely based on assumptions and speculations, there are no facts in science, if there were, science would be dogmatic within their concepts, science can't be this dogmatic because science knows that the whole of existence evolves and changes, there can be no fixated concepts which means no utter facts. This of course doesn't stop people into science stating that science is about facts which of course infers dogmas, a fixated preconception of concepts and perceptions that can no longer be further proved. This analogy of course is again only an assumption.

General science might be fixated to these facts (dogmas) but quantum physics and metaphysics isn't, when two protons can communicate, not just interact, between each other, physicists know that consciousness isn't just of the brain. Consider this also, what caused the human brain to grow bigger over time, was it the brain miraculously growing bigger through evolution for some reason or was it consciousness causing the brain to grow bigger over time? Our brain grew because of our expanding consciousness, not our consciousness grew because of our expanding brain, conscious awareness causes the brain to grow, this is well known in science to occur. Consciousness before the brain...

Let's take this further, science can now computer emulate creating a mini-universe, did this not take a creative consciousness to do this? This infers that the universe we exist in, could have been created by a consciousness way beyond human comprehension, in actuality, some scientists believe that is exactly what occurred. It's a good idea to do your own research on this, you just might come across something I didn't. I don't want to detract from what you discover through my own perceptions, this is well known to occur.

New Age spirituality; is also based on fear, the fear of fearing and the fear of being in judgement and the fear of expressing the ego altogether. To know that fear is of being of fear, one has to judge what is and isn't fear. What makes us feel fear? A judgment of fear when fear can be highly beneficial to making us more aware. It's a bit silly denouncing fear when it can be so beneficial to us if used correctly.

How often do new age spiritually aware people denounce religion as being based on fear? Is this also not of judgment and slightly hypocritical? How often do these same people judge science as being some how of a lower vibration or less worthy in some way to their own beliefs? Consider this, is not all of what was created, from the same source of energy? Isn't everything of this source therefore worthy within it's own right? Everything has equal value, this also includes atheism and agnosticism.

Religion: The way religion is expressed by church leaders, especially in the west, can be totally based of fear at times, the bible can also be interpreted as being based on fear and on fables. The bible however can be interpreted in many different ways. I found if you read the bible as a non-fiction book, the bible makes no sense until you read it as a fiction book. When you read the bible as a friction book, you begin to become aware of the hidden meaning of the bible which then refer to a book based on non-fiction. The bible is encoded and if you are unable to read in symbols, the bible will stay a fiction book based on fear and fables. It's very difficult to read something that is of the infinite with finite perceptions. 

All these isms and ideologies are based on assumptions and speculations, a person into science or atheism  might say that science is  more of factual assumptions and speculations than religion or any other ideology, of course a religious person would state otherwise. People into science/atheism and religion might also state that their ism and ideology are more than assumptions and speculations but this is purely based on their own perceptions, not on other perceptions. In actuality,  no ism or ideology is more worthy than another when they were all created from the same source.

How many isms actually concur impartially to all this? Very few because each ism has it's own fixated preconceived perceptions based on their own perceptions. It's preconceived because usually each ism has it's own perceptions, anything out side these perceptions are usually denounced as being somehow less worthy of consideration.

The point is, everything was created from an infinite source of energy, facts however are of a finite perception because they have limitations where assumptions and speculations are infinite. For any ism or ideology to proclaim their of facts, their actually stating their perceptions are only of the finite, religious people and atheists mistakenly, in my mind, do this on a regular basis, especially when they are in opposing opposition with one another. It's this act of opposing that causes a consciousness to perceive primarily in the finite, which to me is always going to lead to conflict, this I believe will only stop when we start to perceive in the infinite. In a religious/spiritual sense, this infinite represents the connection to the source of all creation known to many as God or the source of all creation, I'm not sure if atheism and science have a name for this infinite source of energy but matter itself, matter and anti-matter.

Perceiving Beyond All Our Fixations

Written by Mathew Naismith

To evolve, everything has to move on, at times this also means the demise of an animal, like the dinosaurs, or the way we physically interact in life like the way we shop or travel. We no longer use a horse a cart like we used to for a very good reason. Trust me, when the horse and cart were being phased out, certain people kept on trying to use the horse and cart over and above motorised vehicles when it was no longer viable or sustainable to do so.

The magic word here is viable because when something obviously becomes unviable,  it becomes redundant and non-progressive towards evolving and if we have too much of an attachment to such practices, stagnation sets in and then most often a reversal of our situation occurs. 

Before I go on, I think we need to look at the definition of fixation to get a better understanding of how our own fixation most often hinders us from evolving.        

- An abnormal state in which development has stopped prematurely

- An unhealthy and compulsive preoccupation with something or someone

- The activity of fastening something firmly in position

To move on just isn't to do with the way we physically conduct ourselves in life, it's also includes to mentally and spiritually evolve from our present situation. This at times also means letting go of our present fixations to what ever ideology, religion, philosophy, path, or what ever we have become fixated to. Have many of us actually taken notice of how nature evolves?  Nature doesn't fixate itself to anything and try to hold onto it no matter what, unless it's still viable and sustainable within the present environment. Everything of nature either adapts to the present environment or becomes redundant to the present environment thus dies out.

We however still today have crocodiles and alligators that have not yet evolved mainly because they are still viable and sustainable to their present environment. This also means that not all our ideologies, religions, philosophies or  paths we are presently following, are unviable and unsustainable.

How do we know when to move on to evolve or not?  Like the alligator and the crocodile, are our fixations still viable to our present environment?

Lets look at our present environment, it's quite noticeably chaotic and destructive, would not anything we have presently fixated ourselves to, conductive and viable to this present environment? In actuality, human history is full of chaos and destruction, this has created our present fixations, in other words, our present fixations were created from and due to this chaos and destruction, isn't it time to let all these fixation go? It would obviously seem not, like the dinosaur, anything trying to hang on till the bitter end, will perish in the end anyway if it no longer fits within the present environment.

I've recently been writing about perceiving beyond our present ideologies and philosophies, this hasn't gone down to well with a lot of people, it wasn't well received at all. A particular group of people stood out in particular, to my amazement, the ideology/philosophy they follow, obviously religiously, was the be and end all, it was better than Christianity and Islam for various reasons to start with but again in whose perception?  Just because an ideology/philosophy is the be and end all for us, this shouldn't mean it the same for everybody else but it would seem it is according to certain groups of people.

I had five different people, from the same belief system, state that their ideologies/philosophies wasn't a religion or an ideology for starters, I of course proved otherwise, only one of these people could see my view however, that's not a good percentage. Being this fixated to an ideology/philosophy isn't healthy, in actually, you can see how such ideologies/philosophies have been created by a reality of chaos and destruction. To create chaos and destruction, you need a consciousness that won't evolve, this means such consciousness won't become aware and wise beyond it's present environment, in this case chaos and destruction. It is obvious fixation are the cause of this chaos and destruction in the first place, this will of course create ideologies and philosophies that fit within this environment!!

We don't realise we no longer need these ideologies and philosophies that were created from such reality, we can move on from this and evolve, OR, yes, we can also stagnate and eventually deteriorate, one way takes wisdom to accomplish, the other a pure absence of wisdom!! 

In a true sense , we never really needed ideologies and philosophies in the first place, all what ideologies and philosophies represent is a desire, a desire to fixate ourselves to something rather than to nothing. As I have always stated in my writing, there is a big difference between living for a need and living for  a desire, one will create the reality we are presently experiencing, the other a reality few of us can imagine.

Ideologies and Philosophies and Beyond

Written by Mathew Naismith

I was recently asked what is my point I'm trying to make when making reverence to perceiving beyond present day ideologies and philosophies. My point certainly isn't that ideologies and philosophies should have no further part in our lives, so what is my point? I think the following should explain this in some way to some extent, I gave this in reply to someone asking me what is my point.

My point is perceiving beyond these obvious limited ideologies/philosophies, especially when people of one ideology/philosophy think their ideologies/philosophies are in anyway somehow above other people's ideologies/philosophies.

In one sense Buddhism is, but in another sense so is Hinduism and Christianity but only to a person who looks beyond these belief systems and isms.

I will explain this further using the sciences as an example.

General science is limited to logics, if it doesn't make logical sense or can be logically proven at a particular point in time, it can't exist. Logics in this case is used as an ideology in a sense that logics is fixated to one point of reasoning, any other reasoning process other than logical is disregarded. The problem with this kind of reasoning or perception is that it is limited to logics, in this case logics within general science has become a doctrine, a belief that if it isn't logically proven, it can't exist.

Like with religions/ideologies, there are different sciences and philosophies that use  different reasoning processes, metaphysics is one and quantum physics is another.  These science techniques perceive beyond the normal practice of general science, does it make these science techniques more superior than general sciences? At first we would say most definitely yes, however, this isn't the case. For example, people into Buddhism or Christianity seem to perceive that their religion/philosophies are superior in some way but the question is to whom?

I recently received the following reply from a good internet friend of mine. 

In discussion once, I mentioned that I see the Creator as a single source; I did, however, acknowledge that much is perspective, illustrating by saying "what appears to be a star from a distance, can become a galaxy on closer inspection.

This is a prime example of someone perceiving beyond a fixated perception that the creator is of a single source, even though the perception at that point in time tells us that the creator is of a single source.

In this case you could perceive that a philosophy, not influenced by ideological concepts, is being used here as a true sense of philosophy never fixates itself to a particular concept or idea. I know this person perceives beyond the thinking mind and uses the inner mind, in other words this person uses a mind not influenced by the five senses. This person still uses the mind influenced by the five sense, but, they obviously, to me, also use what I call the inner mind.  We of course all use the mind influenced by the five senses and logics at times in one way or another. 

If anyone is interested, this person also has their own Google community titled World Peace. 

To whom is a particular ideology/philosophy more superior or more of the absolute truth than other ideologies and philosophies?

If I met Buddha, for example, and he started telling me how he's perceptions are the be and end all, they are supreme to all other perceptions, I would just simply laugh at him for the simple reason no ones perception is supreme over and above another.  For example, are the sciences or Hinduism the answer to all of what is? The answer to this is simply no, consciousness itself is infinite, this means it's forever changing and is  endless within it's possibilities and creations. This also means consciousness isn't fixated to one perceptions or group of perceptions, it's basically boundless and unlimited within it's perceptions.

Lets say my perceptions were actually the be and end all, they were supreme over all other perceptions, in this case I would be able to become aware of the worthiness of all other perceptions, as within the present, each perception has it's place within consciousness as a whole.

OK,  lets put it another way, if I was a devout Christian, would it be wise for me to go into an environment destructive towards such perceptions? Within that present moment, Christianity is more harmful to me, it basically has no value in such an environment, however, if I was to perceive and adjust to my present environment, my experiences would be a lot different. 

What would happen to Buddha and Jesus, for example,  if they returned? They wouldn't last long even though their perceptions go way beyond normal human perceptions. This means their perceptions have no substance or creed within such a reality, there perceptions are seemingly worthless even though their perceptions are more aware and wise.

It matters not how aware or supreme a perception is, either it be an  ideology, philosophy or science, if such perceptions don't belong within a certain reality, they are meaningless. Indeed, a lot of what I write about is meaningless within this reality, it just doesn't fit within the main stream of things, so why do people like me still express themselves? 

Simple, if I wasn't supposed to be able to perceive the way I do, I wouldn't be able to. No matter how you perceive,  it's worthy, maybe not too worthy within the reality we are presently experiencing but it's still worthy no matter what perception you express and follow. This means what ever ideology, philosophy or science you perceive through, it's still worthy no matter what environment you are in, however, just because the ideology, philosophy or science you perceive through is your be and end all, doesn't mean it's everybody else's!!  

The question is now, have people like me adjusted to our present environment?  Absolutely, but not at the total expense of our own perceptions, its wise to adjust to the conditions of our environment for only in this can we still express our own perceptions to some degree.

The controlling ego doesn't like to adjust or compromise for within this, it loses control, it's this simple!!

Religions, Ideologies and Paths

Written by Mathew Naismith

The importance of religions, ideologies and paths to the human psyche is quite apparent as human history plainly shows, after all, most of our history is made up from such attachments. 

Recently I had a person state that their religion (ideology)  isn't an ideology, it's a path, of course if it's not an ideology it's also not a religion. Buddhism is certainly a religion, it has doctrines and belief systems that define what Buddhism is about, without such guidelines, the human psyche would have nothing to attach itself to.  Basically,  the human psyche represents the ego in some way, in a true sense, the ego is unable to attach itself or comprehend an ideology without labels. For starters Buddhism, like any religion, has a label, Buddhism is obviously of the ego for the ego created it.

It would seem the human psyche needs the ego to comprehend anything, to do this of course entails the ego to attach labels on anything it wishes to comprehend. Of course the ego goes further than this when an attachment occurs to such labels, with such labels in this case, doctrines and concepts are formed, basically making such ideologies the be and end all. One example is to state that God doesn't exist in any sense, of course not all Buddhists conform to this doctrine, such Buddhists are able to perceive that everything has come from one source that a lot of religions call God. In a sense, there is a God in one source but not as in a deity of any kind for all of what is, is of this one source.

You also have religions that have more than one God and Goddesses, Buddhism see this as an attachment to the ego, in doing so, looks upon it's own ideology as being more correct in some way above these other religions. Having to have a label to follow is ego, to express it's own ideology (path) as being more correct in any sense is even more of an ego. I should point out that not all Buddhists express themselves in this way, there is no need for all has it's place within this one source for it is of this one source no matter how it expresses itself.

I should also point out here that Christianity is also well known to be the path to righteousness, this known path doesn't make Christianity not an ideology just because it's all to do with a path to righteousness!! 

I've noticed that certain Buddhists and Christians also talk down Hinduism when Hindus can choose to be polytheistic, pantheistic, monotheistic, monistic, agnostic, atheistic or humanist. Hindus don't have to be governed by strict doctrines or barriers that stop a Hindu from perceiving beyond normal human perception, all ideological concepts and beliefs are obviously accepted within Hinduism. In a sense, Hinduism seems to represent all of existence, being the oldest surviving religions probably says it all.  Don't get me wrong here, I'm not advocating Hinduism over  and above all other ideologies, I'm just stating that Hinduism seems to have no doctrines and barriers that other religions have taken on. Think on this, advocating there is only one God period or that God doesn't exist in any sense, is the ego setting up barriers when consciousness itself has no such barriers. Consciousness itself isn't limited to certain perception of one kind or another,  it's boundless for it has no controlling ego telling this consciousness what and what not to perceive.

I love synchronicity. I recently experienced  a state of just being, there was no labels therefore no ideologies or paths or past and future, only the present of just being.  Within this state, there was interaction of individual forms and energy sources but not in the same sense as in our state of consciousness. Within this state, there was just being for no purpose or intention which gave this state a sense of serenity. The reason for this serenity was obvious to me, labels, ideologies, paths and the perception of a past and future gives consciousness more motion, as soon as we give any energy form more motion, the less serene it becomes.

Look at it in this way, a racing car speeding at 200 miles per hour is less stable than driving at 10 miles per hour, especially on a slippery surface. The more movement we drive the racing car at, the less stable it becomes, we are no different to a racing car. The more labels and ideologies we have, the more motion we create thus the more unstable a consciousness is going to become.

A racing car on a slippery surface becomes unstable because of it's interaction with another energy source, being a racing track,  that isn't conductive of another energy source driving at high speed on it.

In our case, we have ideologies or paths that are non-conducive to other ideologies and paths, the more motion we express within our fixation of our  own ideologies, the more unstable we make consciousness. This instability will of course cause us trauma and chaos.!!

Choosing Your Own Reality

Written by Mathew Naismith

This is an awkward post to write, actually, I wasn't going to write it, it's going to be too ambiguous for a number of people, meaning, for anyone religiously following a certain ideology, my explanations are going to seem like a joke to them. This is all to do with explaining the different aspects of things like God, ego, soul, for example. In most ideologies, these things only have one meaning, one explanation, all other explanations are irrelevant and wrong, I will however hopefully show this isn't correct, all ideologies have their own truths which in turn creates a certain reality.

Which ideology speaks the utter truth: over and above all other realities, is Buddhism correct over and above Christianity or visa-versa? Is Islam correct over and above Buddhism or visa-versa? Who actually defines what ideology is more correct over and above all other ideologies? This is an important question to answer because the answer to this question isn't ambiguous at all, actually, the answer is quite unambiguous, meaning, the answer to this question is quite obvious.

At present we have religious extremists expressing themselves in a very extreme way, this is wholly do to these people believing their ideologies are the be and end all above all other ideologies. 

What is the driving force behind these extreme reactions, what makes them extreme within their ideology? 

Most people will just look at the ideology itself, in this case, this makes all the people who follow such ideologies, that can be expressed in an extreme way, extremists in some way. This analogy would also make all Christians extremist as well, especially when  considering the religious Dark Ages. Does the actions of Christian extremists in the Dark Ages infer that all Christians today are extremists?  Of course not. Extremism hasn't anything to do with the ideology itself, its to do with the implementation of such ideologies by certain people religiously following an ideology.

If we are religiously following an ideology of one kind, what human trait are we actually expressing to an extreme? Following any ideology religiously is defined as an extreme reaction going by dictionary definitions. The only human trait that can create extremism in any way is egotism as opposed to ego.

So the answer to the question, who actually defines what ideology is more correct is egotism, not the ideology itself. Yes, an ideology can be written in an egotistical way but it's the way a person reacts to this ideology that can cause it to become extreme. I don't know of too many ideologies that aren't written in an egotistical way, God definitely exists, God defiantly doesn't exist. You even have ideologies that state that all other ideologies that have a believe in God and/or soul, are beliefs brought about by delusions, in other words these ideologies are delusional, this is a quite a broad statement to make. This kind of statement says to me that such statement like this are highly influenced by egotism themselves. What other human trait, other than egotism, would state such a statement? 

I've seen people fixated to a certain ideology use science to explain why God and souls don't exist, however, I've also seen people following a different ideology use relevant science that explains that God and the soul do exist, which one again is more correct over another? Egotism will always state my ideology is more correct no matter what.

The point is, no ideology is perfectly correct, however, no ideology is incorrect either, the truth is defined in what reality we presently reside in. Does God defiantly exist? Most definitely but only in certain realities.

The Infinite Consciousness: There is supposed to be over 8 million realities within this one physical reality, only egotism can state, categorically, which one is more correct over and above all other ideologies. I do find it quite amusing that some ideologies state that all ego expressions are an illusion, but in stating so, have themselves not expressed a form of egotism!!

Consciousness itself is extremely diverse and infinite within it's expression, it ever changing as human history quite plainly shows, which ideology is always correct above all other ideologies?  Once again egotism will say my ideology is always correct but what does a consciousness, not influenced by egotism, actually say?  

All ideologies have merit within their own realities, if you want to create a certain reality for yourself,  follow a certain ideology as it's these ideologies that create a particular reality, in other words each ideology creates it's own reality. For example, Buddhism creates a certain reality as does Christianity, Islam and even materialism, is one reality more correct over and above another reality? Egotism once again will say it is within it's own ideology, it's own reality.

Consciousness itself isn't defined by egotism nor ego, it has not fixed to defined  boundaries, it's infinite within all it's expressions either it be of egotism, ego or a state of being egoless.

Materialism; expresses a state of egotism and creates relative realities according to the ideology being expressed.

Religions like Christianity; mostly expresses ego and  creates relative realities according to the ideology being expressed.

Religions like Buddhism; creates a state mostly void of the ego and creates relative realities according to the ideology being expressed. One might judge, "To express materialism is less worthy than to express Buddhism for example, one is more of a delusion than another". The only part of the humans self that will make this statement is egotism. 

Consciousness is that vast and infinite within it's expressions and non-expressions, there are no true delusion, the only delusion there is, is only knowing that we are only of one of these realities. We are not just egotism or ego nor egoless, we are all of what is.

In all, is it wrong to just choose one reality to exist by? I will answer this with another question, is it wrong in being physically human? Experiencing being human is experiencing one reality, this isn't wrong no matter what way we express ourselves, we can however express ourselves to the point of being highly destructive though, even this isn't wrong. When we look at our destructiveness only through this reality, destruction is wrong, however, this view changes when we realise we are all of what is, there is no right or wrong, just different expressions of consciousness that a wise collective consciousness would change to something more constructive I feel. 

It matters not what reality you choose to experience, what does matter is how destructive our fixation to a reality can become when expressed to an extreme.

Infinite Conscious States

Written by Mathew Naismith

I’m going to start this post off with a very important question, remembering the answer always formulates the questions not the other way around within a reality of duality.

Is it the ideological concepts and beliefs that create conscious states or is it the conscious states that create the ideological concepts and beliefs? This is an important question for us to know remembering there is only one true conscious state; all other conscious states are created from ideological concepts and beliefs.

Non-duality = timelessness + stillness +answers + dharma +one conscious state

Duality = time + action reaction +questions + karma + various conscious states

Let’s use meditation as an example here, to meditate we have to focus to quieten our mind and to focus we use certain concepts and beliefs, depending on the ideology used, to meditate. These concepts and beliefs used determine the type of meditation we will experience; this seems to be obviously saying that conscious states like meditation are brought about by certain concepts and beliefs depending on the ideology!!!

This is interesting, why doesn’t everyone have the exact same experiences while meditating? This is simple; the ideology/thoughts/philosophy we use determines our experiences, this produces a unique conscious state so it would certainly seem that concepts and beliefs create conscious states!!

Meditation is a certain conscious state which is determined by the ideology we use, this works quite fine in a reality of duality but what about non-duality?  

It of course doesn’t work, there is no various conscious states produced because there is only one conscious state, within this state, it’s (this) conscious state that creates concepts and beliefs within realities of duality. Concepts and beliefs don’t actually create conscious states; all they do is influence (the) conscious state to produce various experiences, they don’t actually create them.



Fig,1 is a good illustration of our consciousness, like a jigsaw, it’s made up of various pieces and each piece represents different concepts and beliefs, for example, Buddhism and science, these all come together to form a bigger picture. Now you might think this bigger picture is non-duality because it’s complete, it’s whole and is as one but it’s never complete because this bigger picture is always only one part of an even bigger picture as explained in a previous post, so what actually represents non-duality?  Fig, 2 is representative of non-duality, note there are no actual definable jigsaw pieces, this is because non-duality isn’t made up of various pieces, it’s whole.

Now in duality if we keep thinking it’s the concepts and beliefs that create conscious states, we will stay in a reality of duality even after our demise, however there is absolutely nothing wrong with this for within this we experience all of what consciousness is or what we have deemed God is. If on the other hand you at the soul level wish to no longer experience conciseness in this way, all you have to do is truly realise that it’s conscious states that create concepts and beliefs, not the other way around. Take Jesus and Buddha for example, they represented a conscious state not concepts and beliefs, these concepts and beliefs of religion where created from this conscious state. It is quite clear here why religion hasn’t worked the way it should have, religion works on concepts and beliefs not a conscious state as Jesus and Buddha exemplified.

Where does this leave meditation for example within a reality of duality, is it truly created by a conscious state or is it the concepts and beliefs that create the conscious state of meditation? In truth it’s never the concepts and beliefs that create a conscious state, this perception of concepts and beliefs creating conscious states are only brought about by thinking in duality, this isn’t truly what is happening. There is truly only one conscious state; every other conscious state is created from this one conscious state in reality of duality. You can see why so many people see realities of duality as an illusion; there is truly only one state of consciousness!!

Well not really, because non-duality isn’t defined by time, it’s of timelessness, everything has always existed and if everything has always existed, realities of duality can’t be true illusions but we can be delusional mainly because of our lack of awareness of this one conscious state always creates concepts and beliefs not the other way around.  The delusion is we think concepts and beliefs create conscious states in other words when they don’t.  

So what’s the significant of knowing this other than consciousness creates concepts and beliefs?

You can exist in a reality of duality but at the same time realise that all concepts and beliefs come from one consciousness, this allows one to realise that every concept and belief is really of one consciousness not individual conscious states. The significants of this is you become a lot more accepting of all other concepts and beliefs other than your own; this in turn will obviously give us more harmony and peace.  It all comes down to our mentality either it be egotistically controlled or not, remembering every different concept and belief was egotistically created, what other trait would separate consciousness into small jigsaw pieces?

Being Within Our Own Space

Written by Mathew Naismith

I think this is important to bring forth, it’s important not to judge another religions, other spiritual practices and concepts and any other ideology as being unworthy especially in relation to our own, who are we to truly judge such things?

Each person has their own path and their own space even though we are on the same journey, what seems to be causing conflicts is other people judging other ideologies as being inferior to their own. This at times can induce us to become extremist within our own ideology; this can in turn induce us to force our own ideologies (space) onto others especially when we see our own ideological concepts as being the be and end all, the absolute truth and most worthy above all else. Doesn’t this these days sound familiar??

Is the problem within the ideological concepts themselves or is it within the people expressing such ideological concepts?

We often judge that other ideological concepts are this that and the other making the people of such concepts unworthy in same way in our eyes, however, can an ideological concept exist without such people following such concepts?  These concepts need people to create them and then follow them before they become influential to us; it’s the people who are the concepts not the concepts who are the people!! Yes, these ideological concepts and doctrines influence us because we allow such concepts to do so; the emphasis is on us not the ideological concepts and doctrines.

How many Muslims are not extremists within their ideological concepts?  Just because a few Muslim extremists are trying to force their own ideological principles (space) onto others, does this mean Islamic ideological concepts are extreme or does this infer that certain groups of people are of extremism within these principles?   

An extremist will read into an ideology what they want it to read, not what is actually written. They will also extract certain concepts out of such ideologies and discard or disregard the rest; this of course changes the true meaning of such ideologies.  

Take an Islamic, Christian or Buddhist ideology, what are these ideologies if we only use and utilise certain concepts out of them without taking in the whole ideology? An extreme action for it is extreme to only use and abide by certain concepts within an ideology while discarding the rest of the concepts within an ideology. 

New age spirituality is different, it doesn’t seem to have a fixated set of ideologies to follow, people who are of this new age spiritualty have their own ideologies they personally follow as they have their own space.  We all have our own space to begin with because we all have a different path of life to follow, this can at times incorporate following fixated ideologies, does this make these fixated ideologies, such as religious ideologies, any less worthy than following our own personal ideologies?  It shouldn’t.

When you look at this, you can see that new age spirituality has taken various concepts from other ideologies to produce their own personal ideology, is this also of extremism?   If we are using the concepts out of other ideologies and discarding the rest, are we being extreme within this action?

It’s an extreme action to take certain concepts out of cetin ideologies but it’s not of extremism, the reason for this is we are not trying, or shouldn’t be trying, to force our own space onto others, yes they give other people the idea of their own concepts but in most these people don’t force their own concepts (space) onto others.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all ideologies worked like this, keep within your own space without infringing on other people space unless these people are accepting of such ideologies. Personally I love being influenced by other people’s space (ideologies), not just because they make me more personally aware but more collectively aware as well.   

What goes against making me more aware is extremism; anyone with a fixated ideology only wants you to be aware of their ideology while discarding all the rest, how aware will this then make us?  We would once again be living in ignorance instead of awareness and we know how destructive ignorance can be. 

I haven’t exactly become attached to my own space but I do have a close bond with it, it is who I am which to me is important to me to be aware of, I am my path. People of extremisms are also of their path for they chose to be influenced by fixated ideologies, they also chose to influence other people’s paths, this is their path, is it truly any less worthy than my own?  All we need to do is stick to our own path and have our own space as much as possible and try not to judge other people’s path too unworthy in the meantime. 

Become your space…….

Consciousness Mapped Out

Written by Mathew Naismith

I was utterly being nagged last night, nagging is a form of shouting and shouting comes about through me not listening to the whispers, so what wasn’t I listening to this time? We are already there; all we have to do now is become aware of this.

What this seems to mean is man has accomplished in becoming aware of an expanded consciousness beyond from what he understands through his ideologies, in other words he has expanded on his awareness beyond the ego collectively. This doesn’t need everyone to become this aware for this to affect the collective for the main reason, all of consciousness is connected in whatever form it takes.  What this all seems to mean is we, as a collective, have consciously changed to a more expanded awareness, so if this is the case why aren’t we noticing this change, where is the physical manifestation of such a change?

Before a physical manifestation can occur, a mental manifestation needs to be established and to do this we must become aware of such changes have actually occurred, how do we do this? Through people like myself who are being nagged or more importantly listening to your own whispers or shouting as in my case!!

Because all consciousness is connected, no matter in what way we are expressive of this consciousness, if a certain number of people’s awareness has expanded beyond their ego this will affect the collective.  Spiritually aware people are certainly expanding on this collective consciousness every time they go beyond what is determined by the ego, beyond our set ideological principles. This is the reason I haven’t set myself to one ideological principle, I actually took on principles that seemed to most people contradict each other, the more aware I became the less these principles contradicted each other.

Ideological principles, like science and religion for instance, are but expressions of consciousness in a certain way, each ideology is conductive to a certain expression of this consciousness as I will explain further by explaining what I see what each ideological principle relates too. First of all I will start with consciousness itself.

Consciousness- To me consciousness is everything no matter what that consciousness is either is be of an ideological principle, another animal species or even a rock, it’s all of what consciousness is or what God’s consciousness is.  Our conscious and subconscious thoughts are also of consciousness itself, there is truly no separation, everything is consciousness.  

Awareness- Awareness is to do with being aware of parts or all of consciousness itself, this is usually acquired through books/education, physical/mental experiences, praying, mediating, chanting and so on. The more aware we become the more aware of this consciousness we are and the less aware we are the less aware of this consciousness we are.  Awareness is about the consciousness and the more conscious we become the more aware we are.  

Religion- Religion is but another ideological principle we use to become aware, it is specific within it’s principles like any other ideology of it’s kind and is but one way to become aware of God’s consciousness.  It is questionable if religion itself would survive if God was found to be non-existing, in certain cases certain religions might fold but in other cases I don’t think this would be the case, Buddhism is one example of this.  

Science- Science is but another ideological principle that is specific within it’s principles, it will, in a different way to religion, give us more awareness of God’s consciousness.  Science doesn’t actually rely on anything to be true because science isn’t about truth but about speculations.  

Spirituality- Spirituality itself has a huge spectrum of principles, it’s not specific, it can incorporate principles like science and religion under one ideological principle, it has no boundaries and is usually seen by other more specific  ideologies as being too unspecific resulting in a mishmash of made up principles.  However Yoga is a good example of how spirituality works; yoga incorporates science, religion and mind/body control and exercises quite constructively.  

Ego- The ego can also be of a specific principle, the self. This principle of the self can and does corrupt any other ideologies, usually turning them into something that can be quite destructive however when the ego isn’t about the self, it can be quite constructive.  A controlling ego will judge a good or bad but an ego not in control will observe without a specific judgement of a good or bad.

Atheism- Atheism itself has very strict specific principles, the existence of deities and a God(s) just can’t exist within the principles of atheism.  If deities of any kind were found to exist, the principles of atheism would become irrelevant making the ideological principles of atheism itself redundant.  Atheism totally relies on their belief that God(s) and deities just don’t exist; it’s a very specific ideological principle.  

All the above is representative of consciousness and each has it’s own way in becoming aware of this consciousness.  We have a huge array of ideological principles to choose from, some are specific of certain principles, other ideologies utilise many principles, these are all a part of consciousness itself and of course some are more helpful of becoming more aware of this consciousness and others less so.

It would seem however a certain number of people have accomplished in expanding their awareness beyond our present ideologies; I just wouldn’t get such a message as I did if this wasn’t so especially in the way it was shouted at me.  So where do we go from here?  Just believe and feel within yourself that we are there mentally and spiritually beyond any specifics of any ideology, it’s a kind of culmination of all ideologies which means the culmination of all of what consciousness is.  

These ideological principles were very important to us especially if we learnt to use them without a controlling ego controlling our actions and feelings, without the controlling factors of the ego, all ideologies either become constructive or redundant.  It would seem certain people have used these ideological principles in a constructive way.  Once we truly realise we as a collective have expanded beyond the controlling ego, we then realise we were never really of the controlling factors of the ego, it’s just the way we used these ideological principles that made us believe we were!!

A Dissipating Dogma

Written by Mathew Naismith

Recently I’ve been in contrasting conversations with different people of different ideological principles, I am more aware now of the differences of these ideological principles, not actually of the principles themselves but  of the difference between these principles when dogmatism  becomes an influential factor of any ideological principles either that be religious/spiritual or scientific.

I am also more aware of how the people who use spiritual ideological principles are changing, they are becoming less and less dogmatic mainly, I think, because we are more aware these days of the influences of a controlling ego.  Dogmas can’t exist without a controlling ego; the ego is the only human trait that supports dogmas, once you cease using the controlling ego in one’s everyday life, the dogma becomes non-existent quite automatically.  

One of the contrasting conversations I’ve been in recently was about how we will quite automatically take on this new conscious change and how we will drop old skills to take on new skills. One of the old skills we used was dogma to prove our ideological principles, this is one of the old skills that, by the sounds of it, will go, dogmas will no longer have a use in the new consciousness.

I’m going to cheat again and use one of my replies to others to explain myself a little more on this subject.  

Recently I've been in conversations with other science minded people, not quite like myself however, anyway I realise now how influential dogmas are on ideological principles of any kind. The ideological principals of religions and sciences work, it' when we allow ourselves within these principles to became tainted with dogmas, realising dogmas can't exist without controlling ego, is when life becomes chaotic or more chaotic.

My point is I'm becoming less attached to this kind of conscious reality, I'm still accepting of it but it's losing it's appeal.

Living in a reality that has no dogma influences influencing our ideological principles is becoming more and more appealing every day. I do believe this is a part of this automatic process, I have a view that we will just automatically find ourselves in this new consciousness.

Philosophical Views and the Sciences

Written by Mathew Naismith

Because I’m also have an interest is the sciences, I converse with a number of science minded people, unlike myself I should say for the main reason I’m also into spirituality, philosophy, history and psychology. Most science minded people are into science and more science, it would seem all else is irrelevant for the main reason no other ideology is more logical and correctly accurate. Does this not sound simular to other dogmatic ideologies?

Religion can be dogmatic like this but science minded people just won’t see these similarities between their dogmatism and religious dogmatisms. Thank God not all science minded and religious people are this dogmatic within their ideological views and beliefs.  You might ask, where am I going with this? It seems to matter not what ideology you are into, if you are dogmatic about these beliefs you are not going to see any other view or want to change these views with the times.  Almost all ideologies have changed in time in some way, they have evolved however you still get people who are dogmatic within these old views and hang onto them no matter what.

If an old ideology still works why change it? You don’t but what you do is accept other ideological views that have kept up with the times.  Just because an old ideology still works doesn’t mean it’s the be and end all as I will explain further using science as an example.

Most science minded people do not like anyone pointing out where modern day science evolved which was from, philosophy and mysticism, obviously for a very good reason. They don’t want their ideological views assimilated with any ideology that isn’t logical and correctly accurate as there’s.  Again this mentality sounds so much like Dark Age dogmatic religion it’s not funny.

The question is now, how accurate is modern day science? It’s more precise than mysticism and philosophy but does this make it more accurate? I don’t know of any scientific endeavour that didn’t first of all evolve from a theory and a theory is a philosophical view/ hypothesis.  At this point of a theory we are using inductive reasoning which is of course what philosophy is about.

When does a theory become fact or accurate? When we use deductive reasoning to test a theory to become accurate/fact or not.  Deductive reasoning gives us more accuracy which is what modern day science people are about; to them this is what gives a theory a logical conclusion.  

For a logical conclusion to be made first it take a philosophical view to make a deductive reasoning from. If we only deductively reasoned we would have no theories to make such deductive reasoning from in the first place, in other words to give us this logical conclusion we first needed an illogical philosophical view.  We should remember here that nothing is logical unless proven to be truly accurate so when a theory is still a theory it’s still classed as being illogical however you can have a theory that is logical in content. In this case, a theory being logical or not, depends on one’s own perception of what theory is logical and what theory isn’t. How accurate would modern day science be without theories/philosophical views?  It wouldn’t be because it just wouldn’t exist, it needs theories/philosophical views for modern day science to exist.  

Modern day science endeavours can’t become accurate without inaccurate assumptions, what if these assumptions where wrong in the first place? For a good example of this, many science minded people believe/assume/theorise that the universe was created through a certain process like the big bang which by the way is only theoretical.  What if this theory is inaccurate, would that not make everything else that was created through this big bang theory inaccurate as well?  All science is really basing all proven science facts on an inaccuracy therefore science itself isn’t an exact science. 

Science has never been an exact science and to evolve in time like any ideology should never be deemed as an exact ideological view giving us facts instead of perceived facts.  Every ideology needs to give itself room to evolve, modern day science for many isn’t doing this because they deem it as an exact science, it’s the be and end all. The funny thing is science, in it’s many forms from when it evolved from philosophy and mysticism, has always changed with the times. Take mysticism, mysticism evolved into alchemy and then into modern day chemistry.  Look at modern day science, it evolved from basic science to many forms of physics today which a lot of science minded people denounce because it’s evolving in time.  Before DNA became known, if you went up to a scientist and started talking to them about DNA they would have just laughed at you because back then it couldn’t be proved. Science today has evolved to know better than to laugh at such things these days but it still laughs at anything that can’t be proven.

Just imagine if we all took this dogmatic stance and laughed off everything that couldn’t be proven today, we just wouldn’t evolve because it’s through these theories and philosophical views we have evolved, history proves this time and time again. New age spirituality/consciousness is very much like this, it’s full of philosophical ideological views but without these views we just won’t evolve.  

Yes to evolve as a species we need to push and pull, push old ideological views away to pull in new ideologies. This gives us reactions from this pushing and pulling effect which we have always done as a species.  The effect this is going to give us depends on if we are holding onto old ideologies that don’t fit within these new ideologies, the reaction from this is usually conflictive and again human history shows this time and time again.  The way around this is to accept these new ideologies and philosophies which is done by ridding ourselves of the controlling ego, once we drop the controlling ego acceptance isn’t going to be a problem.  If we can’t do this we are best to stop pushing and pulling altogether.

Being Spiritually Appreciative

Written by Mathew Naismith

Our own perception influences us in every way and of course these perceptions of ours are in turn influenced by what ideologies we live by, the culture we live in and the experiences and knowledge we obtain as we go through life. Our perception is influenced by so many things in our life and is hard to pinpoint when we and/or others see ourselves as being negative in some way, one or more of the above mentioned can cause such negative perceptions.  Of course when we are negatively perceiving we are obviously not appreciative, this again is of course is brought about by a number of reasons as mentioned above.

Recently I witnessed a discussion between two people, they both called the creator itself something different to the other person, this was defined by both of these people following a different ideology to each other.  The discussion was noticeably conflictive.  Both these people did not appreciate each other’s belief in a creator but focused more on their set ideology; this of course gave them a different perception to each other which made them unappreciative of each other’s belief in a creator.  Of course the culture we live in and the experiences & knowledge we obtain as we go through life can also influence us in such ways giving us fixated perceptions.

This brings me to my own perceptions and appreciations. I usually refer to the creator as an intelligent universal consciousness or something simular referring that everything is of this consciousness. Because I also live in a Christianised culture I also refer to the creator as God, which of course to certain other ideological belief systems is wrong in some way. We all have our own perception, which at times, can quite unnecessary create conflicts.  

My appreciation however is somewhat different to other people in that I appreciate every moment in existing in my present ignorant state of existence, I appreciate and accept this state of existence more than if I was in a complete state of awareness.  This is of course brought on by the ideologies I follow, the culture I live in and the experiences & knowledge I have obtain in my life. You know the funniest thing is, I’m also appreciating my own aging process, it’s a huge wow to me.  This isn’t just because of friends that have passed on before being able to experience what I am now experiencing, I know they would love to be still alive today experiencing exactly what I am now experiencing.  The real reason is because of the ideologies I follow, the culture I live in and the experiences & knowledge I have obtain in my life.

Do I actually appreciate every moment of my life in every moment of my life?  No but I also appreciate this.  Yes I do think my own perception therefore awareness is different from the norm, it seems strangely positive to the max, to me this is what spiritual awareness and conscious changes are all about.  

How could anyone appreciate being ignorant, this is perceived by many as being negative but I don’t see it as being negative in anyway.   Life can be unkind and has been unkind to many throughout human history but this is brought on by our own perception.  We live in a fragmented consciousness; this is why so many seek ideologies that will defragment this consciousness to one extent or another. This is why many seek out consciousness itself (God) because this consciousness isn’t fragmented; this in turn helps balance out our fragmented existence I believe.  We can’t expect fragmented consciousness to be kind because once you fragment consciousness (God) you naturally create conflicts and ignorance, yes you could look at this fragmented consciousness as being negative but I don’t.  The main reason for this is while living in this ignorant fragmented state of consciousness we are seeing and experiencing consciousness in every way possible, to me there is no better way to become aware.  Our so called sacrifices are well and truly worth it I believe.  

I’m just in awe in what fragmented consciousness has made us aware of but of course to be aware of how fragmented consciousness is making us aware you need to first be aware of how fragmented consciousness is making us more aware.  This of course gives us utter appreciation of the whole of the collective not what we just personally perceive as being positive or worthy.

God, an Intelligent Consciousness

Written by Mathew Naismith

First of all I would like to state that I’m not actually a religious person, I don’t have anyone particular faith/conviction that I dogmatically follow without reason.  To me religion is supposed to be there to hold us to certain moral values, without these moral values we have utter chaos however this post isn’t about religion, it’s about an intelligent consciousness a lot of people call God.  

Fragmented Consciousness: To morning I entered into a conscious state that allowed me to see it’s impossible to see/meet another person who is exactly on the same level of conscious awareness as me. We cannot meet another person who is precisely aware as ourselves, every person is different within their own awareness, this is what I deem as fragmented consciousness. 

As soon as two exact same aware parts of this fragmented consciousness come together they immediately become one. This is the reason we can't meet consciousness itself (God), we would immediately become one with this intelligent consciousness (God) quite instantly. Actually two exact aware parts of consciousness wouldn’t need to come together to form one, it would just happen even if they were trillions of miles away from each other.  When this happens you are not actually humanly aware of this, it just happens quite automatically.

I believe it’s our awareness that gives us our individuality which is fragmented consciousness or Gods consciousness fragmented. This is why in so many different religions we try to be one with God; it’s becoming one with all which we call oneness. Each fragmented awareness (person) has it’s own vibration which is brought on by our own personal awareness, once you become in tune with the collective awareness you change your vibration to the collective vibration thus you become one with the collective consciousness (God).  

What I feel what is happening  at the moment is the more  fragmented consciousness becomes the more chaos we will have, this is shown by how many people are presently alive on Earth at the moment, each person has their own vibrational signature, their own personal awareness different from everybody else’s. However what keeps this fragmented consciousness from completely going off the Richter scale is being forcefully taking on other people’s ego that are more influential thus, sort of, collectively giving us all a similar vibration to each other. Consumerist materialism & communism is a good example of this & so is believing in the same religion.

The way we are presently trying to collectively become one through these ideologies isn’t quite kosher  for people who are aware that becoming one this way isn’t true, it’s not the kind of oneness you can find through actually becoming one with consciousness itself.  Yes these ideologies are holding off total chaos but only just, we are really always on a knifes edge trying to be at one in this way.

Intelligent Consciousness: A lot of us realise or believe that everything was created by an intelligent consciousness that a lot of us call God.  I had a feeling to find another source while writing this post to explain about this intelligent consciousness that a lot of us call God. The following video was the first source I came across and I thought explained this intelligent consciousness quite well, I didn’t agree with everything said on the video but it still had the content I was looking for.

To me individualism represents our individual awareness which I call fragmented consciousness and the more people are present at any given time, on Earth for example, the more this denotes the fragmentation of consciousness itself or Gods consciousness.  War is a good example of killing off and forcing others to think the same, in other words forcing the collective human race to become more aware at the same level of awareness.  Nazi Germany and Stalinism are prime examples of this and so is consumerist materialism.

These kinds of ideologies that keep a collective race vibrating at a similar rate of awareness to me isn’t very intelligent and I think a lot of us are waking up to that. The problem is these ideologies seem to be always controlled by the controlling factors of the ego and because of this we are always living on a knifes edge.  The intelligent consciousness itself (God) doesn’t have this problem of a controlling ego, once we become close to this consciousness we realise by becoming one with this consciousness we would quite automatically alleviate all traits of the controlling ego. This would in turn rid us of a chaotic existence.

Spiritually aware people aren’t stupid, we know what we are feeling that there is a much better way to be a part of the collective, yes some of us are lead astray at times by egotists but we know within our hearts that there is a far more intelligent consciousness than our individual selves.  Some non-believers could say if everything is Gods consciousness God would have to be of the ego as well. Yes that is true but this intelligent consciousness isn’t stupid enough to allow the ego to be master and all controlling but some of us humans are. I know what intelligence I want to be a part of!!  

Spiritually aware people show a high level of intelligence that human intelligence, on it’s own, has no way in understanding, ever.  One gets it’s intelligence form the controlling ego which is only one tiny part of consciousness itself the other directly from all of what this intelligent consciousness is.  No matter what others say, if you are spiritually aware, you are very intelligent.

A Collective Reality of Free Thinking

Written by Mathew Naismith

I found the following thread worth sharing; it’s about letting go of beliefs that have programmed us to believe in certain ways, discarding anything else other than what a certain belief tells us to believe. The conclusion is this has nothing to do with thinking for ourselves.  We need to relearn to think for ourselves again which will take away the pain thus lead us to the light.  Robbie also gives us some handy hints in doing just this within his thread.

Story + Belief

Ok, as regulars here know, I am constantly searching within to release pain, and shift my consciousness. Recently I have a couple more things that have made a world of difference for me, and can for you too.

In the past I have posted about changing beliefs in our subconscious minds. I know this can be difficult sometimes as there may already be opposing beliefs within that resist change. They are not being difficult, it's really a math thing (i.e. +2 + -2 = 0 = resistance/cancelling out). So how do you get that +2 to stick? You need to remove the -2.

Two things that helped:

Brian Grasso - FTR Nation (FTR = Free-thinking Renegades) - regarding our "story"

Seth: The Nature of Personal Reality - awesome book!! - regarding our beliefs and much more to be honest (half way through the book. I highly encourage anyone of the path of self discovery/re-membrance to get this book.)

Here are techniques I am using with myself to great effect, and can you for you too.

The Story. We tell ourselves a story about ourselves and Life. Problem is we think it's true, and so believe, perceive, create, and receive what we believe in. I did not understand that I could change my story, and that was a difficulty for me, and likely for many others. So, point is, simply start telling yourself a different story. You do not need to struggle and be frustrated, but if you tell yourself that old story....

Example: Old story "I am filled with pain and must heal. I am unhappy, and will be happy eventually. I can't afford.. not enough.. (you get the idea). Look at that story, and wow, there it is made manifest. New story: "All of me is in balance, alignment, and harmony. I send/receive peace, love, joy, harmony, oneness, gratitude, and abundance." See the difference there? Huge difference. So, bottom line, be aware of the story you tell yourself about you and Life. The inner self listens constantly and takes as true what you input. (input = output)

Belief: We believe things are true as we grow up ("learning" from the outside-inward). The thing is none of it is really true, however we do not know this, and take what we are told about ourselves and Life is true. Not so. That is only apparent truth (appears to be, because you believe it you experience it), and not absolute truth (remember, Life is actually an illusion, 99% pure space according to science). I have been going through my belief system, and evaluating every belief that comes up, and determine if this represents who I really am in the Now. Most of these beliefs are not resonant with my true self. How to work with beliefs...

Example: "I'm not good enough. Humans suck, we are terrible and destroying ourselves and our planet. I can't afford it. I am unhealthy, and overweight." What you believe, you receive (note: Believe = Be Living). Here's what I do: "I have decided I do not believe that I am not good enough. I have decided I do not believe that Humans suck, and we are terrible and destroying ourselves and our planet. I have decided I do not believe that I can't afford what I want. I have decided I do not believe that I am unhealthy, and overweight." In this, I am telling my subconscious that the prior beliefs are no longer valid. Now I tell myself things like "in my current story, I am good enough.. humanity is awake, enlightened, and being who we really are, and have created Heaven on Earth.. I can afford to buy anything I want.. I am always in optimal health." See the big difference there?

So, yes, beliefs and the stories we tell ourselves are of the utmost importance, as our subconscious takes it as a truth and manifests it within our 'reality'. There are no limits, or 'reality checks' here, just the willingness to let go of everything you think you know about you and Life, and choose to be a conscious Creator (as opposed to unaware Creator). The only thing in your way (or not) is you.

One more thing: I also tell myself "I am being my 5D self and am fully integrated." It's that time. 2014 for me is an energy and consciousness of "[censored] it... it's that time. the old stuff it all goes. the Phoenix arises." Pardon my French...

Lastly, for the doubters, do you believe "it" because it's true, or is "it" true because you believe it?

Love you!!

G'day Robbiesan

Interesting Mr Robbiesan.

Any ideology that fixates us to a certain way of thinking & believing, & everything from this we fear should be avoided only if we really want change. If we don't want change this kind of recreating the same thing over & over again is fine.

The controlling factors of the ego tell us to fixate ourselves to certain ideologies that make the most sense to us at the time & an ideology that also makes us feel secure & safe. The ego needs to feel secure within it's cage or more precisely a closed box even though it is suffering.

At the moment I've poked holes in the box & all this light is flooding in but my ego feels secure within this box so I'm not venturing out at the moment. I allow the controlling factors of the ego to influence my life at present but that is changing. I love being expressive of the ego but I have become weary of the unnecessary destructiveness of such control.

Socially & culturally we have been brought up to think in a certain way, actually we have been collectively, as a whole, brought up in this way. It’s very hard for some people to break from this behavioural pattern & yes it is learned behaviour which has taken over from thinking for ourselves.

The light from outside this box is collective but it’s now free will thinking for ourselves instead of others thinking for us. We think, because we are now going to think for ourselves outside the box it’s not collective, that couldn’t be further from the truth I feel.

The ego loves collectiveness, it doesn’t want to be left on it’s own especially when it’s suffering & not at the top of the pile, allowing others to think for us feels secure but of course it’s not.  When the light from outside the box comes through to us at first, we see ourselves thinking for ourselves thus we feel we have lost our security, it doesn’t even seem collective but it is.   

This free will thinking from outside the box is collectively about thinking for ourselves, it’s still collective because everyone is now thinking for themselves. It’s just a different way of thinking to what we have been conditioned to accept.


I should state here that I don’t think life’s an illusion however it’s by no way all of who we are.
