Hi Noplacebo

Certainly one of the many dichotomies that afflict our dualist nature and society. Taking a deep breath or waiting to exhale....that is the question. We know that, inherently, we are more and deeper than the surface that we expose and analyze. This certainty poses a problem for the rational intellect and its conspiracy (right site for that remark...lol) with the egoic process. Contemplation is not counting the trees so that you don't notice the forest. Contemplation is the active appreciation of all those aspects of our existance that are not made evident by our physical manifestation.

Since we are one-way vectors (both in time and in space) we need to make use of every aspect of our existence. The best way, that I have realized, is to exchange openly and freely. The more we share, in terms of what we are made of and how we perceive and consider it, the better we will be at describing our real natures. The "connectedness" that you mentioned is not some fuzzy, feel-good illusion (although it can end up that way) it is the recognition that we are all in this together and we all have the same fundamental approaches and requirements.

At a certain point, we will (and have already) started to create alliances that will further our evolution, in ways that we cannot, as yet, contemplate. Thinking is a zero-sum game with a penalty clause. Sharing is the only synergy in town.

The human psyche is designed to hold and transmit that which is germane to the moment. Any attempt to hold onto or to restrict the free flow of your energy will result in the kinds of worry and discomfort that are related to emotional distress and anxiety.

Just know that you reach things in the time and the place that they were intended to be received. How you take and use them is up to you and you can profit by them for your own purposes. No one else can and no amount of your imploring them will give them that ability.

Any esoteric or occult teaching is but one thing among an infinity of understandings. It's application to our time and place depends on the individual and their need for such an information and assistance. If now is your time and place, then fear is no longer an issue.

You save the world and your part in it, by saving yourself. That is not selfish it is your responsibility. You share this with those that are able to make use of your vibration. They take what they need and leave the rest. What they share with you, however meagre or rich, is up to you. You accept or reject it as you will.

Reflection has a pejorative connotation when we consider that it puts us "behind the 8-ball" in terms of being able to deal with the current situation. You will agree that even a "repeat" performance can never be identical to it's predecessor because "time" has changed and so, therefore, has the event.

We have the advantage of an ever-increasing perspective to allow us the capacity to deal with any moment, within that same moment and no other.
Time is not a metric so much as it is a consideration. It is flexible (as we note from our selective appreciation of the passage of time) depending on how we are using it.

To use the time that we are given is always our prerogative and removing it's influence is the job of our perception of reality. We free ourselves from our temporality by reducing it to the infinitesimal, ie the moment.

Thought power is an oxymoron. Your thoughts only have the power that you give them (that they then reflect right back at you, subtly altered with their own brand of "conditioning") and always to your detriment.

Stretching the truth is an expression that is used to describe wanting reality to conform to our desires. What we need is to appreciate reality for what it is and that is an ability that will banish all forms of interpretation to the trash-heap where they belong.

Stretching time is another aspect of our reflective natures. Time lasts forever when we are bored or in trouble or otherwise inconvenienced. Why is that? Only because we take those moments and reflect them continuously, thus stretching the fabric of time by filling it with needless echoes of our existence.

When we are in the moment, we circumvent the reflectivity of the thought process and enter into the realm of time-consciousness. Time ceases to exist because our perceptions are all solidly locked onto the object of our attention. In this way, we enable our perspective to remain outside of time and no longer be influenced by it's reflective component. Being outside of time means that time is contained within our consciousness and is therefore subject to our needs.

Isn't it about time?

PostPosted: Sun Oct 11, 2009 9:04 am    Post subject: Thought provoking Reply with quote

Unless it is the thoughts that are responsible for the provocation…

Consider your existence as a progression of events that lead to an eventual state. During the time allotted for this exercise, you encounter all kinds of obstacles and impediments. Or are those things just the opportunities that you need? They were existing beforehand and you had the wherewithal to align yourself with them so as to take advantage of their presence and effect!

So then, what is there to think about? Indeed, thoughts are just the reflected vibratory emanations of your psychic self and it’s instructions as to how to proceed. Along the way, those reflections get altered by the condition of your mental processes and territories such that they influence the lower mental and cognitive functions. A form of interference that we have come to believe is our own self considering what we need to do and how we need to do it. Talk about superfluous!

When you yell hello to a friend to get their attention and you hear an echo of your voice from a distant object, do you pay heed to that distorted emission? Do you stop and consider why your call is so much less forceful and distinct? Does it make you reconsider your need to speak with your friend? Of course not! Clearing your mind of unnecessary interference is the first step to clarity. The vibe is all about its reception and use to rectify your circuits and accomplish your mission.

The next time you start to think about something, just remember that a clogged drain never gets cleared out by adding to the clog. Move into activity. Preferably, speak about what is going on. Use your energy by applying it to your current situation. Waste not, want not.

Another aspect of thought transmission is it’s relationship to the flow and perception of time. When we consider the speed of light, we believe it to be the fastest means of information transmission available. It would appear, at first glance, that thought travels faster than light! How can that be? It is not information transmission, it is information repetition. No problem going from A to B when B IS A….

The implication is that creativity is related to the flow of time (as part of the universal principle of refinement) and since thoughts are independent of time then they are not nor can they ever be creative. Thoughts reside and emanate from the astral plane. The astral plane is the location of the repository section of the soul. Memorial residues are stored where time is “frozen”. That is to say where all events are recorded and locked in the moment of time during which they were created.

Any instance or copy of a event that has been installed into the psychic structure of the mind retains each and every component of the event. As such, it is a witness to and a description of the energetic “signature” that was inscribed at that moment by the reactive memory. The contents and components of this memorial residue are able to receive and vibrate sympathetically with the incoming psychic energy. They then (much like an elementary particle in a quantum state that absorbs energy and emits a photon as it “de-excites”) emit a signal that represents the contents of the residue. That transmission of information sets into resonance the psychic structures and, much like descendant energy receipt, the ego transduces the signal.

When the energy is vocalized, this circuit is interrupted and the resonance of the emission and receipt takes precedence over internal reflection. In this way, we can short-circuit the process and cease the loss of energy. The resonance that is established within the moment but beyond the reach of the reflective centers can then serve to elevate the vibratory level and allow for the manifestation of our intent. Taking the time out of the equation literally and figuratively frees us from the memorial ties that bind.

Once we have realized that thought transmission is deleterious, wasteful and counter-productive, the question becomes how to short-circuit the process?

Do we try to resist the reactive "desire" to respond to our thoughts?
Do we ignore the thought process and blithely go about our business?
Do we chant mantras? (In our heads? Now there's a thought!)

Repetitive or meditative practices are, in fact, memorial in nature and therefore actually replace and enhance the thought paradigm.

Creativity is the key. Spontaneous, instantaneous, actualized performance in the material plane. This is not to say that mental activity is disallowed. What is required to rectify the mental transmissions is the presence of the vibratory qualities of verbalization. Once we address an issue by exchanging verbally, we replace already structured forms with new vessels that contain the energy of the moment.

This process "frees" us from the prison that our memories provide and gives us the heads-up to produce and perform those actions that are ideally suited to the task at hand.

So, where is this prison? What is it that keeps us from our intelligence?

Memorial residues are maintained on the astral plane. One curious (well more like obvious) aspect of the astral plane is that time has no flow there. Memories are "stuck" there which is one of the reasons why you can always recall a memory, exactly as it happened. That we choose to embellish on some of our thought-provoking memories is just more of the same poison that keeps us from living in the moment.

The will is the power that resides within us and that allows us to give rein and to permit the transformation of the vibration into concrete realizations. The power of the will is visceral in nature and it is intimately linked with our emotional centres. Those emotional centres generate the majority of our feelings and those feelings colour and impregnate our experience. The force contained within these impulses is the heart of our essence. It is that essence that provides the motive force behind our will.

It is this will that evades us when we allow it to stray too far from our center. We "astralize" our creative potential by constantly forcing it to refer to our past memories. Only the ego and it's continuous referencing of the rational intellect to find it's "place" in a given sequence of events, is to blame. Without this pernicious and insidious interference, we would be able to immediately access all aspects of our person and therefore respond adequately and precisely to the situation at hand.

Getting stuck or being unable to respond or to act appropriately at any time is just that. We have given over our control of time (the present) and have placed our will in thrall to the memorial residues that contaminate our existence. These are the bars and the locks that prevent us from having access to each and every aspect of our beings.

PostPosted: Mon Jan 18, 2010 3:55 pm    Post subject: We are all post impressionists... Reply with quote

The impression of the past versus the impulse of the present.

We are all subject to, and dominated by, the past and its memories, reflections and influences. Our perceptions are constantly being besieged by the rational intellect as it compares and contrasts the current situation with all previous examples stored in our reactive memory. A survival characteristic certainly....for beings that are unable to intercept, interpret and instigate the action that is required at any given moment.

As our consciousness evolves and our awareness and sensitivity increase, we become better able to deal with the present moment. How we deal with our own energy and it's vibrational aspects is a natural and normal progression. What has happened is that the roadsigns are out in the middle of the road and we keep running into them. Our movements and methodology must involve the real-time processing of information as well as the instantaneous action that keeps us from being diverted and subverted in our required advance.

This process goes against what has existed since the dawn of man and rightfully so. For us to surpass our involutionary tendencies, we must cast aside what no longer serves us and create, enable and enact that which provides us with a new and more effective paradigm. Having been held back by the weight of memory, we must now free ourselves from those bonds and take a step into the void....the creative void. The void where in all things originate and whence all things must eventually end. It only seems strange because it is, as yet, normal but not typical.

A thought is like a chain that links us from the shackle around our mind to the anchor in the wall of our psychic structure.

Once we realize that thoughts are not "our own" and that they emanate from "elsewhere", it behooves us to follow them back to their origin. Even if we manage to free ourselves, momentarily, from the shackle part, the chain is still there and can eventually find it's way back to it's original state. They are energetic impositions, after all, and as such are constrained to operate as a function of the energy flows within the psychic regions of the mind.

The "range-finder" that we can use to gauge exactly where all parts of the thought-form are and where they link into our mental processes is our emotional response to the thought itself. The human being is hard-wired hormonally to respond to stimuli in an animalistic manner. We are programmed to respond emotionally to all other energy inputs that generate an interference or an attenuation in the signal strength and transmission within the psychic structures.

Once we are able to describe, in words, the sensibilities that are evoked by any given thought-form, we are well on the way to locating and eradicating the hold that these pernicious perpetrators of pain have on our inframental regions. This process eventually elevates the vibrational frequency of those same regions and raises them into the supramental.

PostPosted: Wed May 12, 2010 1:15 pm    Post subject: I speak, therefore, I can. Reply with quote

The simple act of speaking is the start of the process. Unfortunately, speech, like thought, that is not received and returned, cannot do justice to the energy used to create it.
Our power of speech separates us from unconscious life forms as we are able to clearly indicate and define our presence and our purpose. Having another to act as a mirror allows us to see with total vision. You cannot understand anything if you are only on one side of it.
Allow another to share with you and both gain.

The spirit has not only imbued us with a life force, it has also provided us with a self-correction mechanism.
Thoughts are the reflection and induction of psychic energy that is passing through the subtle bodies but that has no creative potential. That potential has been absorbed and replaced by the memorial residues within the soul that color and adjust the nature of the transmission.
We receive and respond to thoughts without knowing that they are a method for our own internal modification.

This modification occurs every time we exchange, at every level. All that is needed is to open oneself to the vibration, intercept that energy and respond uniquely and immediately.
The spoken word is our bond with ourselves. It reveals our reality and prepares our future. The transmission of the vibe and the adjustment of our subtle nature is the purpose of our presence.
The elevation of our vibratory rate is testament to our ability to share that which the spirit provides, in abundance, all the time
