What's Really Real - Not An Illusion??


Written by Mathew Naismith


Human conscious is all about what is negative and positive, bad and good, real and an illusion, the question is, why does anything have to be one or the other, in the case of this post, real or an illusion?

Human Perception: In regards to human perception, there has to be a perception of one or the other. The reason for this lies within human consciousness's conditioning from birth as human consciousness is conditioned to night and day, hunger or fullness for example, so their of course has to be what is judged as an illusion or what's real. The strange thing is, what is often visually the most beautiful time of day? When the sun is either setting or rising. This time period however makes up only a few minutes of a 24 hour period therefore is often overshadowed by longer periods of light and dark, light and dark therefore becomes more predominant which in turn influences how we perceive. 

How often do we question if God or, as I prefer , God's consciousness exists or not, it's usually either one or the other? Why couldn't this God's consciousness just be without having to exist or not exist? It doesn't and that is exactly what God's consciousness represents, neither one or the other, it just is without definition, it's neither an illusion nor real. In actuality, this God's consciousness represents what is often the most beautiful/stunning part of the day, it's likened to the time period between day and night for me. You can  also relate this God's consciousness to a state of oneness or pure bliss or wisdom.

Illusions: I still find it strange that so called well connected spiritually aware people, talk about oneness on one hand but on the other hand talk about what is real and what isn't. A consciousness in a true oneness state, has no perceptions of what is real and what is an illusion,  there is no perceptions of separation, anything other than this isn't a true sense of oneness. As soon as a consciousness has perceived an illusion, it has become apart of the illusion because it's now created an illusion by it's own human conditioned perceptions. I call this a black and white mentality.

Let's look at time which is supposed to be an illusion. While existing on this planet, which evolves around a sun giving a consciousness a perception of night and day, this consciousness is conditioned to a 24 hour time brought about by periods of nights and days. When we go away from this planet into outer space, there is no night, it's only day as the sun is always visible and shining. If we then go right away from the universe itself, there is then no perception of day, only night because there is no visible sun to give a consciousness a perception of daylight.

Which reality is real and which reality is an illusion? A human consciousness conditioned to a black and white mentality, would judge which one is what, on the other hand, a consciousness not conditioned to this kind of black and white mentality would think otherwise. This reason for this lies within each reality, being that each reality has it's own reality that it is conditioned to, this conditioning however doesn't make everything else apart from this reality an illusion. We might then think, if every reality has it's own separate reality it exists by, this is anything but a depiction of oneness. This is only the case when a consciousness can only think in what is real and what isn't, a consciousness conditioned to a black and white mentality. If you are in a oneness state of consciousness and you have a perception of everything else but this oneness state being an illusion, you are not truly in a oneness state, there is no true states of illusions or states that are real that are separate from these illusions.

Twilight States: What we seem to have negated here is the twilight between day and night, what is real and what is an illusion. As of the twilight hours of each day represents, a mix of day and night, what is real and an illusion is the same. As of twilight hours in a day, what is perceived as real or an illusion are intertwined which negates what is or isn't real. I am certainly an advocate in that our environment around us tells us who we truly are, this twilight is who we are even though within this particular reality of days and nights, days and nights are predominant. Just because a particular aspect of ourselves is predominate over other aspects of ourselves within a particular reality, doesn't make one aspect more real than another just because it's more predominate.

So often spiritually aware people will get into a oneness state and perceive that anything other than this oneness state is an illusion, this perception within itself tells us that this is not a true oneness state that is being experienced. A true oneness state has no perceptions/judgement of what is real and what isn't, there is no true separation but with the perceptions of illusions and even what is real. Yes that's correct, there is no perception of what is real either in a true oneness state, and in actuality, nothing is real as nothing is an illusion either for one needs the other to exist. This is what I call a twilight state of consciousness, neither one or the other. Because we are humanly conditioned from birth to perceive in a black and white mentality, this is how we perceive everything we become aware of, even oneness itself. Yes, amazingly enough, we even separate oneness from other realities and still judge it as oneness!!

As usual for me, this post expresses a strange perception which is difficult to comprehend, there is no question of what is real and what isn't real. This perception within itself to what is real or isn't, is the creation of illusions, as I have always stated, it's an illusion of an illusion created by the perceptions of an illusion and what is even real. I would suggest to my readers to perceive neither and all of the above, why does anything have to be anything, why can't it just be without this kind of perceiving?  Don't separate everything within a certain perception in accordance with a certain reality, it just is what it is within each reality, it's truly this simple.


Note: Please do not take what I have stated in this post a being gospel or of utter truth, it is what it is, but another perception that can often be, as usual in my case, incomprehensible to a lot of people and quite understandable too.

We are Guests within Time Itself


Written by Mathew Naismith

Hopefully this post will assist people to think outside time itself, it is difficult, while believing that we were created from time, to perceive outside of this time, this  knowing that you are not really of time can assist in getting ourselves to think outside the barriers of time. We are indeed eternal therefore not of time but guests of time as I will explain further. Is it important to know we are only guests of time? I think so especially if we want to heal, or more precisely, change the collective to something more constructive.

We were created in and from time, how is such a creation supposed to think outside of this time especially when all we are taught is also time orientated?  Actually it’s very hard for certain people to even perceive outside of their own taught perceptions within time itself. Anyone who thinks their science or religion for example, is the be and end all, can only perceive within these barriers, they are unable to perceive of any other concept past their own concepts within time,  perceiving to think outside of time is going to be virtually impossible. 

Some people are unable to perceive outside of their own concepts within time and other people can perceive most of anything within time, there are also others who can perceive outside of this time barrier altogether, these are the people who know we are only guests of time not of time itself, in other words we are eternal.  It’s amazing why we all think so differently, it’s all to do with how we think within and out of time.  

Now we could say the mind and body are only of time, they were created in time unlike our eternal selves, our spirit/soul, this I feel isn’t quite correct, the brain was created in time but the mind wasn’t.  Yes the mind can be just of time because it can think it’s only of time but it can also think outside of time. Can the human body exist and perceive outside of time? It can’t even exist as it is outside of Earth’s atmosphere within time, the human body is only of time but the mind isn’t, mainly because it can think outside of time therefore it’s not just of time.  

You could say here that the mind is a guest to the brain, the mind is having a short stay within the human brain just like when we go on holidays, we stay at a venue that gives us different experiences, the mind is no different when staying at it’s venue in the human brain.  I do have to admit though, at times while the mind is staying at it’s venue, the brain, it certainly doesn’t feel like a holiday, I suppose some holidays can be quite chaotic at times!!

The teaching of Buddhism say there is no eternal soul; it’s the go self that wants to be eternal.


The perceiving of an eternal soul is dualistic and of time because everything of time, like the soul, is separated by it’s own individualism when there is no true separation, this makes perfect sense. This is basically saying that time is an illusion and that we are indeed a guest within time, this illusion itself.  This is in line with saying that the mind is the brain when the mind is only a guest to the brain; it’s an illusion when we think the brain created the mind when in fact the mind is only a guest staying at the venue we call the human brain.

The brain has got the mind to think it’s of the brain not a guest of the brain; this is an illusion of the mind brought about by existing in time, so time is an illusion?  

No, time only deludes us to get us to think we are only of time, this doesn’t make time itself an illusion. Why isn’t time an illusion? For the main reason; within timelessness time has always existed therefore time can’t be an illusion, however, time can obviously give us delusions, for example, that we are only off time and not a guest of time.  

So is there an eternal soul? Yes and no, this all depends on our perception of what a soul actually is. In time the soul is separate to all other souls as time is all about dualism but in timelessness all souls are of one entity, one source of consciousness, this however to me doesn’t make time an illusion, this is only the case if we believe we are separated by individual soul experiences within time itself. Also any experience in time only becomes a delusion if we think we are of time instead of being guests of time.  It’s amazing how confused we have become between illusions and delusions, if in timelessness, which we are of, everything has always existed so there are no true illusions only delusions brought about by the mind thinking it’s of time and not of timelessness.  

Like the mind is of the brain, we are but guests of and within time itself, it’s very much like a holiday, it’s the conditions of the destination that defines what kind of holiday we will experience. Can we change the actual conditions of a location of a holiday? If we are holidaying in the mountains, we can’t change the mountains but we can change the way we experience these mountains while on holiday, experiencing anything in time is the same. Yes we have changed the surface area of Earth but the earth is still the Earth as the mountains are still the mountains, unless……. If we stop being guests of a location and decide to own such locations, then we in a sense can change the actual mountains themselves. Instead of humans being guests to time, we think we are of time itself therefore having ownership; we are in a sense destroying the mountains that we came to holiday in.


By not just realising but knowing that we are guests of time, we can indeed change these experiences to something far more constructive and fun as any holiday destination should be, time is after all but a destination for our eternal selves to experience.

I Am All That Is


Written by Mathew Naismith

Is living any kind of ignorance to our true nature an illusion, in other words, is any reality not of our true nature an illusion?

Recently I came across someone who was quite straight forward within her views that anything not of our true nature is an illusion, she can’t believe that so many people believe this reality isn’t an illusion. We are pure awareness; this is our true state which makes our present state an illusion which I concur with. The reason I concur with this is I fairly much know we are living in ignorance to our higher self, our pure awareness state. Everything about this reality denotes ignorance which is quite the opposite to our aware state, this would have to mean anything of ignorance denotes an illusion because it’s not of our true state which is of pure awareness or does it?

So this is saying that anything of ignorance is an illusion, the first problem I find with this is this sounds awfully like absolute truth to me, how would any of us, obviously of ignorance, know anything about absolute truth?

The second problem I have with this is we can’t possibly experience anything that isn’t of the collective consciousness in some way, this means this ignorance we are experiencing is also of this collective consciousness, it has to be real within a sense, maybe not human sense but in a real sense. The ego wants us to be only a part of a pure awareness nothing else, so we separate ourselves from pure ignorance. We do this by judging and labelling that anything of ignorance is an illusion but where is the oneness in this when we are judging, labelling and separating one consciousness from another?

I also thought this pure awareness state was our true nature until recently, instil I realised we are not just of what we have judged as being pure awareness, our true nature, but of pure ignorance as well. What ego wants to be a part of ignorance especially of an ignorance as pure as this pure awareness?  Once we become aware of what we judged as our truer state, we judged anything not of this state as being an illusion, this to me sounds we are once again being controlled by the ego in a very tricky way!! Do not underestimate the controlling ego; it’s indeed a very tricky little devil.

Every time I’m in a quietened state of consciousness I get quite firm and clear messages saying, “We are not just of what we have labelled our true nature but everything consciousness is, this includes any state of ignorance we may experience”. If any state of ignorance is an illusion, why would a pure aware consciousness want to experience, or even know of an ignorant state of consciousness if this ignorant state of consciousness wasn’t also of who we are?  I don’t think a pure awareness state of consciousness can experience anything it’s not a part of, this means any state of ignorance isn’t a true illusion.  It’s an illusion while we are aware of this pure awareness state but it’s not an illusion when we are aware that we are of both states of consciousness’s in the now, in the present moment.

There is an important point that needs to be made here, when in a pure awareness state,  we are also ignorant to an ignorant state of consciousness while in this pure awareness state, we are in fact still of ignorance when we have stated anything of ignorance is an illusion!! This is actually stating, anything just of ignorance or of this pure awareness is an illusion, either it be of this pure awareness or of pure ignorance, they are both an illusion when they disregard the other because the other is an illusion.

To me our true nature is of both pure awareness and pure ignorance and everything else that is of consciousness. When I was in a quietened state of consciousness last night I realised I don’t want to be of either pure awareness or pure ignorance, this means I don’t want to be of the light nor the darkness but in the grey area, an area of awareness that seems quite balanced. However what controlling ego wants to be of the grey area, it either wants to be of the light or the dark because these areas have a feeling of power and control, being in the grey area has no such feelings but it is of true balance I believe?

I certainly understand, to become knowing of awareness we need to experience this awareness, this means we will look upon what we have judged as pure awareness, our true nature, as being our true selves and look upon anything else not of this awareness as being an illusion. Seeing everything else not of this pure awareness as being an illusion is actually a very good sign, it is telling us we are indeed becoming further aware while we experience this pure awareness separate from ignorance. What I am stating is this ignorance isn’t a true illusion, it’s an illusion that it’s not reprehensive of all we are but I’m also saying this pure awareness isn’t either. Everything of consciousness is who we are.

People like Saddam Hussein and Hitler are a part of me as I am part of them, to separate one from the other hasn’t anything to do with oneness, separating conscious states of awareness from ignorance is the same, all we are doing is doing exactly what our egos desire, to separate anything we deem as inferior to ourselves.

To label and judge certain parts of consciousness an illusion is a part of the growing process, we will in the end I feel come to the same conclusion, nothing that is of this consciousness or any consciousness is a true illusion however I could certainly be incorrect in this as always!!


I know I am not just of the light or dark, I am all that is.

Ascending, an Illusion


Written by Mathew Naismith

I wish to affirm with my readers in where I am coming from with what I write. I’m not into ascending, I have no need to ascend and I certainly have no desire, we are already ascended beings within a descended state of consciousness. There is a saying that goes like this; “the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence”.

We are at present in this descended state of consciousness, on one side of the fence, but we are assumingly aware it’s greener on the other side of the fence, an ascended state of consciousness.  Once we ascend to this other side of the fence we then realise how green it was on the other side of the fence from where we were in our descended state, you realise you were always in an ascended state.  What is causing us from knowing this is in what we desire as opposed to our needs.  

All our needs are on this side of this descended conscious state side of the fence however what we desire is always on the other ascended conscious state side of the fence.  There is absolutely no need to go onto the other side of the fence, our desiring ego wants to be ascended so we are unable to see what we already have and it’s certainly unable to see we are already ascended.  Actually there isn’t another side of the fence; it’s an illusion of the ego. The ego of course is going to want something more glamorous no matter what side of the fence it’s on, so to do this it’ creates an illusion.  It’s actually the other side of the fence that is the illusion; it’s supposed to give us ascension when we are already ascended.

So we definitely have a need to change what we are doing  so ascending to the other side of the fence seems the only way, what else is there to do?

If the collective realised they are already ascended beings in a descended state of consciousness this reality would change quite dramatically and quite automatically because by realising we are ascended beings in the first place we would again automatically ascend to a higher consciousness.  One of the worse things we do to stop this automatic ascension is idolisation which fixates us to a singular ideological standardised view, by doing this we presume our ascension is somewhere else other than where we are.  This of course gives us the illusion; to ascend we need to go to the other side of the fence.  If you like, God is everywhere so there is no other side of the fence, God is where you are right now and so is your ascended self , all you have to do is truly realise this.

Once you truly believe you are already ascended you become a lot more accepting of your present situation even if it’s being in a descended state of consciousness, you become humble and a lot more at peace with the world. Yes we and others will act inappropriately at times compared to our known ascended self, that is a part of the experiences of being in a descended state of consciousness. If we wish to change this all we need to do is remember who we really are, an already ascended being however there are people like myself who are accepting of our descended state of consciousness but not to the point of our own or anyone else’s harm.  I’m quite accepting of my ignorant self in this descended state because I don’t see myself as being destructive, just experiencing.  


Yes we need, as opposed to desire, to collectively change our ways if we want to create a better existence, that would seem to be a must.

Illusions of 3rd Dimensional Thought


Written by Mathew Naismith

In any dimension our thoughts are influenced by that particular dimension, it is what makes that dimension what it is so are all these dimensions an illusion because all they are is abstract parts of consciousness? I will get back to this question latter but first how does this dimension make us think which will define what answer I give to the question I just asked. If I was to ask the same question in a different dimensional state of consciousness or mode of thought my answer, believe it or not, would be somewhat different so which answer is correct?  All the above believe it or not at the same time so to speak!!

I have inserted one of my replies to a good internet friend of mine below which will help shine more light on what I’m trying to portray here.


G'day Eric

Yes I do understand these egoless states of consciousness & that one can use the ego to portray themselves as whatever to assist constructively not destructively, it is impossible to be egotistically destructive in these egoless states I believe.

I look at it this way Eric, we know how to use the ego to it's most destructive potential however we haven't learnt to use it to it's most constructive potential & maybe this is what this new awakening is all about.

I know of other entities that live a more physical life than we do but the big difference is they have learnt how to use the ego in quite a different way to us. 

You & I have one particular fundamental difference, I don't believe anything is of the illusion but I believe you do, neither of us are wrong at the same time it's just we are feeling in different dimensional modes of thought, this sounds ridiculous but it's not.

Take a nail for example, in this dimension the nail is a fastener but at the same time, as such, this same nail is something else in a different dimension & people & our thoughts are the same I believe. 

It is funny to think, if I went from this dimension to another holding the same nail that the nail would change quite instantly & of course so would I, the Mayans are a good example of dimensional change I believe.  All what anything is is energy & energy is very easy to change so is the nail an illusion because it changes to whatever in different dimensions? In this dimension not in my mind because it’s all a part of consciousness & anything of consciousness is real.  Just because consciousness isn’t the nail itself but an abstract part of consciousness doesn’t make it an illusion in my mind. Illusions are 3rd dimensional thinking to me because in this 3rd dimension we have a supposed start & end & even cycles are 3rd dimensional thinking, we can’t understand past start & end, illusion not an illusion, it doesn’t have to be one or the other but just is.

Blessings
Mathew



While in mediative states we can & do to various degrees touch on these other dimensions however our prime mode of thought is 3rd dimensional for most people & this is what influences us to whatever we experience while meditating but we don’t think while in meditation!! Science has proven we do however this isn’t the point, how do ghosts/spirits & non-physical entities interact with us without thought?  We don’t need the physical brain to be aware & yes think in various dimensions which allows us to interact with other beings/entities in various dimensions. While in mediation we become further aware so our brain responds to this however because our brain is only programed to think in 3rd dimensional modes of thought we still perceive everything in a 3rd dimensional way.   This leads us back to the initial question, “so are all these dimensions an illusion because all they are is abstract parts of consciousness?” We have a perception of illusions existing because we are only thinking in a certain dimensional way which gives us the perception of illusions.

The following link is on an interesting science study on the mind which shows how the mind can be tricked in believing in something to be fact when it doesn’t have to be what we perceived as fact & this is only at the awareness level of the mind which is still in 3rd dimensional thinking modes as a whole.

You could look at these scientific studies & think that the mind is actually starting to think outside of it’s programmed 3rd dimensional modes of thought. What is happening isn’t illusions but a change of perception similar to what we get when meditating. So when our sight improves for example from when we had less vision does this less vision denote an illusion? It would seem so but no, just because we perceived an improved sight doesn’t mean our poor sight beforehand was an illusion; it was part of our perception brought on by 3rd dimensional thinking. This denotes a start & an end & in this case less vision to more vision just by our changed perception. Why does there have to be a start & an end but we perceive there to be so. So this still seems to be saying that 3rd dimensional thinking is an illusion however is it our 3rd dimensional minds telling us it’s an illusion, the real illusion could be that we perceive that these illusions actually exist.   

Some of us are starting to think outside these 3rd dimensional modes of thought & at this point we see even more that this dimension in particular is an illusion!! The problem with this is when we start thinking in other dimensional modes of thought all else will seem like an illusion & in our case all else but the creative consciousness itself is an illusion however is this other dimensional way of thinking giving us a true perception of what really is? We must remember while thinking in 3rd dimensional modes of thought we had the facts but now we realise we didn’t, how do we now know we have the facts now while thinking in different dimensional thought waves? It’s but another dimensional way of thinking. But we don’t think however science has proven we do & in any case ghosts have no brain to think with so what gives them their perception? Different dimensional modes of thought which gives these ghosts their own perception of things which is the same with all consciousness. We should remember here that even in a meditative state or after our demise, as such, we are still affected by various dimensions which give us our perception no matter how in thoughtlessness we think you are in, this thoughtlessness is only perceived by us because of a particular dimension we are in at any given time.


So are these different dimensions that give us our modes of thought & following perception all an illusion? Yes if I was to only think & had a knowing in 3rd, 4rth or 5th dimensional waves but there are a lot more dimensions out there that give us a perception of something somewhat different to just saying everything is an illusion, it all just is.  Now we can’t just think everything just is, that’s illogical. Logic is but another thought process that changes with different dimensions, what’s logical in one dimension isn’t in the other which brings us back again to the nail.

Separation or Just Diversity of Consciousness’s


Written by Mathew Naismith

The following is a very interesting exchange between a good internet friend of mine & myself on the various topics, we are indeed all on different wave lengths but of course we learn from diversity & the following is no different.   

Hi Mathew,
Again Who is it that is reincarnating?
Is it love or is it a self?
There is no I in love.
Unconditional love does not need karma or self'it just is'
take care
Tawmeeleus


G'day Tawmeeleus

You have a problem with the I & self, I don't.

It is the smaller me who is reincarnating or self as you like to put it for the main reason to give my soul experience to learn by through diversity, you can't learn through diversity in being we or I collectively it has to be self & just I which is what gives us diversity to learn by.

I'm sorry but this I stuff that's so popular at the moment is rubbish to me because it represents segregation for starters of one consciousness to another which represents opposing polarities & conflict not oneness. To believe in this segregation you would have to believe everything of time & space to be an illusion when it can’t be because it vibrates so it exists just in a different consciousness not in an opposing consciousness because to have one consciousness the illusion & the other real you have opposing polarities but if there just different consciousness’s there is no opposition or conflict just a difference.

This is exactly what man has done right throughout the old consciousness just past, we need to think differently now for the new consciousness to take effect I believe & stop finding opposing polarities to everything.
Love
Mathew


Hello Mathew

No. I do not have a problem with any of it,not the way you imply, asking questions and putting another scenario out there is not having a problem.

A problem is the relation between human will and reality. When will and reality do not coincide, the resolution of this gap between reality and will is the solution of the problem. A problem implies a desired outcome coupled with an apparent deficiency, doubt or inconsistency that prevents the outcome from taking place.

I think if someone has a point of view and you do not agree is creating opposing polarities, that were not there in the first place. This is usually a result of one person thinking they are right and that the other is wrong.

Whereas I personally do not believe anyone is right or wrong because everyone only ever has the knowledge that they have! They cannot know what they do not know.

I guess it depends on your intrepretation of what illusion is.

An illusion is a distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation.

When I talk about illusion I mean that what we see as real in the physical is a perception of a physical reality.

Perception like all energy is not real or solid but we have a physical perception, an illusion of real and solid.

have a nice day Mathew


G’day Tawmeeleus

Are you implying I’m implying what you perceive I’m implying, I’m just implying what I perceive not what you perceive obviously.......Don’t take things to heart Tawmeeleus!!!

Forget the human vessel, we put too much emphasis on it because it’s not who we are so what do we have left? The soul & consciousness which of course we are all a part of. Now the soul can be caught up in human attachments to the extent it thinks it’s just a physical entity however you also have souls that are aware as well. The unaware soul seem separated, the only separation there is is the illusion of separation that’s all which comes down to awareness & this usually comes about by having a soul that has an expanded consciousness through diversity which you call separation or the illusion.   What you call separation I call diversity which we expand our consciousness by at the soul & yes human level as well so this naughty separation isn’t that naughty plus it’s the illusion of separation.  When we look from outside the human emotional square there is no separation, if there was, oneness would be totally unattainable because you perceive separation as I don’t see separation but totality. This is like this that & the other is spiritual but everything else isn’t especially all the naughty stuff but I on the other hand see it as all spiritual.

Think totally non-humanly, in this lies the truth however most people can’t do this because of previous programming from various human sources from the start.  Your only looking at this through human eyes obviously, try looking from outside the square inwards, you would be amazed how unseparated we are!!!

Do you know I get into certain conscious states that I can’t decipher half of what is human, even words have no meaning because to me in this state it’s antiquated & out dated, it’s a real strange feeling loosing most of what is supposed to be recognisable humanly to me. You seem to be just talking about human conscious concepts I’m not!!

We are on quite different wave lengths Tawmeeleus to obviously learn what we must!!!

Love

Mathew
