The Holographic Rainbow … Part 5 ─ Throat Chakra Vortex

“Everything in the universe is in vibration.” 1 … “it is now well accepted that we live in an invisible ocean of energy suffusing space…” 2

Eileen Day McKusick

 

In this discussion of the fifth chakra vortex, we have progressed from the open heart and fully entered the realm of subtle dimensions (introduced earlier in this blog).

Another way of describing the human subtle energy field is this:  “…our biofield—which extends approximately five feet to both sides of the body and three feet above the head and below the feet and is shaped like a torus — containing the record of all of our memories, embedded as energy and information… This makes the living matrix appear as a complex information processing system analogous to modern computer chips, only vastly more complex.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A LIVING MATRIX 

Our torus bio-field energizes our central channel of subtle communication called “the shushumna” in the Vedic tradition, aligned with the physical spine. The chakras are in this alignment with the lower three chakra vortexes sometimes called the Primary Trinity (because of their density). The heart chakra is in the middle as the gateway to the subtle dimensions.

Master Charles teaches that, “we as individuals and the collective humanity… and all the collective experience of the whole of humanity … are generating this matrix.  It looks very real. It looks solid, dense, and it is fixed in dense cellular memory. Thus, certain consensus illusions are perpetuated by dense-dimensional focus. However, it yields in subtle, universal dimensional focus. Why is it not true in the denser dimensions of the Primary Trinity? Because if you remain in the denser dimensions, where that information is fixed and it is unconscious habit, you are not even aware that you are creating it. It is just repetition of information.” 4

And once you have evolved toward opening of the heart chakra, you have released much of the unconscious thoughts, beliefs, and habits that have held you so strongly in the first three chakra vortexes. You have become aware of your co-creation of your reality and you have glimpsed the truth of the interactive matrices and the greater reality of one source consciousness.

Master Charles also teaches that human beings are information processing units. This is why we stress wakefulness, so that we can create and maintain balance with every tool at our disposal. The resonant, coherent rhythm can be regained with opening the heart chakra which is at the earliest beginnings of the harmonic subtle dimensions.

 The throat chakra works on a principle of resonance… Resonance is something you feel in your body,  something that deepens the field of communication and allows your entire being to vibrate with wholeness. 5

 THE CHAKRA OF “Sound”

In “Wheels of Life”, Anodea Judith correlates the throat chakra to sound:  “…Sound is a rhythmic pulsing of waveforms that can be harmonious or dissonant.” 6   “ … sound is the gross representation of an invisible field of vibrations, and operates in a similar way to subtle vibrations.  To enter the fifth chakra is to tune our consciousness into the subtle vibrational field that is all around us…  All vibrations are characterized by rhythm, a repeated, regular pattern of movement through time and space. These rhythmical patterns are deeply ingrained functions of our consciousness.” 7

Most chakra authors correlate “sound” with the throat chakra and this delineation is an excellent one.

TECHNOLOGICAL MEDITATION USING SOUND

Over the millennia, the foremost technique for balance and wholeness has been meditation. Although effective, it has been long overdue for an update, which is what was created by Master Charles Cannon in 1984 ─ technological meditation. High-Tech Meditation® provides a unique way to achieve balance, wholeness and fulfillment in a fast-paced Western lifestyle.  Designed to be practiced on a daily basis, it utilizes Synchronicity Sonic technology to give individuals the opportunity to enjoy a precision meditation experience every time they meditate.  It utilizes comprehensive brain-wave entrainment technology combined with the energy frequencies of sacred geometry.

And there is another key reason why Synchronicity’s High-Tech Meditation is so effective. The creator is a master spiritual teacher, a monk who spent many years in an ancient Eastern contemplative tradition learning to access the deeper frequencies of enlightening awareness. As he mastered the process, he found a way for others to have similar results that were much easier and required much less time than the traditional methods he had to follow. He offers technology to the general public in Alpha and Theta, but reserves the deeply impactful Delta frequencies for serious meditators who commit to daily practice (by enrolling in The Recognitions Program). With skilled facilitators assisting practitioners around the globe, they experience accelerated evolution through the efficiency provided by constancy of powerful entraining frequencies on a regular basis.

A recent book on sound by Eileen Day McKusick explains subtleties of the resonance and entrainment process which can be applied to the efficacy of the Synchronicity technology: “… there are specific resonance windows at which biological effects tend to take place preferentially … a tiny signal at just the right frequency is capable of triggering cell membrane proteins to create an amplified response.” 8

Originating technological meditation is an example of enlightened creativity, available to a master spiritual teacher who is constant in decelerated, enlightening frequencies and thus able to “communicate without words”. Such is the hallmark of a fully-opened throat chakra vortex providing greater “downloads” when combined with fully open 6th and 7th chakras. The more these subtle energy vortexes are open, the more access to universal consciousness there is, and master spiritual teachers are said to be like “empty bamboos” in this regard. This access also explains the great amplitude of their bio-signature frequency which entrains everyone around them, pulling them into deeper states of awareness through a tuning-fork effect.

THE “HEART” OF THE THROAT CHAKRA

 At the heart of each of us, whatever our imperfections, there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, a complex of wave forms and resonances, which is absolutely individual and unique and yet which connects us to  everything in the universe.” 9

Anodea Judith

The throat chakra vortex, being just above the heart chakra, brings that energy upward into the subtle dimensions of universal consciousness.  Carla Rueckhart explains: “That is what the blue ray [throat chakra] is all about: communicating from the heart. An open heart springboards us into open communication … In blue ray, we are speaking from that broader standpoint which we have reached by integrating all of our emotions into our heart and by understanding and forgiving them in ourselves. This viewpoint enables us to understand and forgive the same energies in other people. Our attention and communication then become gifts of love.” 10

COMMUNICATION

Anodea Judith further describes the fifth chakra as: “the seat of communication through sound and vibration …  the realm of consciousness that controls, creates, transmits, and receives communication, both within ourselves and between each other … communication is the coordinating principle of all life. It is the means whereby consciousness extends itself from … one place to another…  Communication is the process of transmitting and receiving information through symbols.” 11

“Communication can be seen as a symbolic system that mediates between the abstract and manifested idea. It formulates our thoughts into controlled physical vibrations, which in turn can create manifestations on the physical plane. … this chakra occupies a crucial place in the gateway between mind and body. It is not a central place of balance like the heart; rather it mirrors the transformative properties of fire – a medium in the transition from one dimension to another.” 12

Thus, communication can more than just words and information. Many layers (dimensions) exist within the verbal, non-verbal, and visual transmission of frequencies. If “communication” is without the awareness provided by the heart vortex, then it is from the Primary Trinity and thus it is just unconscious, habitual repetition of information. But, with heart awareness, there’s access to subtle dimensions and awareness of co-creative holographic mirrors that reflect truth, love, and wholeness much more powerful than words. Welcome to the subtle world of universal consciousness.

EXCESS OR DEFICIENCY

Throat chakra imbalance is defined as: “excess and deficiency by the quality of the voice, the ease of communication, and the flow of creativity.”  Excessive characteristics include: talking too much or inappropriately; gossiping; stuttering; difficulty being silent; excessive loudness; inability to contain (keep confidences, etc.). Deficient characteristics can be: difficulty putting things in words; fear of speaking; speaking with small, weak voice; secretiveness; excessive shyness; tone deafness.13

MANTRAS

No discussion of the throat chakra vortex would be complete without the ancient practice of mantra repetition.

“Sound, as a vibration and a force inherent in all things, has a purifying nature.” 14

Anodea Judith

Repeating mantras is a good focusing tool and the rhythm entrains us. There are many books and resources on the bija (seed) mantras for each chakra vortex, which can be used with focus on the approximate physical location of the subtle chakra. This can be effective. But even more effective are Synchronicity alpha brainwave soundtracks which include basic mantras used in various religious traditions throughout the world. A favorite among yoga teachers is, “Om, The Reverberation of Source.”  The combination of mantra and technology excels in effectiveness of deceleration into meditative states. And a focus on any individual chakra (while listening to the soundtracks with headphones) can also increase effectiveness.

LISTENING AND COMMUNICATING

“Listening is a central part of the skill of blue-ray communication. .. The simple courtesy of listening carefully to what people say to us is a wonderful help in achieving the feeling of safety and clarity in communication that distinguishes blue-ray speech. The central requirement for being a skillful listener is for us to be in our open hearts.” 15

This statement by Carla Rueckert elaborates on the feeling of wholeness we get when we communicate from oneness. We usually “listen” to others and simultaneously think about our response and often miss the truthful subtle-dimensional communication.  This is a good reminder to slow down, be present and tap into universal consciousness for more truthful and fulfilling “communication.”

STORIES

In “Living the Law of One 101: The Choice”, Carla Rueckart writes: “We have had a lot of training during our childhood on how we ought to feel and what we should think…  At first, such guidelines and learned responses are helpful to a growing personality. After a while, however, they can constitute a prison. … We all have our favorite stories. We often tell them over and over.”16 

Master Charles Cannon, in his programs and retreats, has described how we continuously tweak our favorite stories over time. If we notice ourselves doing this, we can also notice that everyone else is doing it too and thus be more wakeful (and more discerning) when hearing another’s  “stories”.

The Synchronicity Socratic Process of Inquiry has been created by Master Charles Cannon as a method for recognizing and disempowering the illusory “stories” in our lives. As he often says, “events happen and then there are the stories we tell about those events.” This explains how our stories – whether they are accurate recollections of something that happened in fact or not – are turned into illusions by our minds. The resulting reality is not real; it is virtual. Using the Socratic Process to dismantle our illusory stories (and the virtual reality they have fabricated) begins to create a truthful reality instead.

To help clear the fifth throat chakra vortex, it is helpful to ask the questions below and then do the Synchronicity Socratic Process on them … revealing their illusory beginnings and habitual maintenance. Once this awareness dawns, we see that we have co-created the movies of our lives, with all their harmony and conflict. This can leave us awestruck in the presence of one source consciousness. At that point, all that’s left is to ask: “What remains in the stillness of a mind?”

Fifth Chakra Contemplations

For your contemplation (not analysis). What’s the difference you might wonder? You can read the previous blog to this one which highlights this quote from Master Charles Cannon:  “Transformation is through awareness, not analysis.” Instead of using the mind for comparison, contemplation is using the heart to feel the presence and the frequencies of the question. With the heart involved, subtle-dimensional awareness awakes and provides spontaneous and sometimes awesome “information” …

What is your primary belief about …

… your right and ability to speak up?

… your ability to express yourself clearly?

… why you talk too much or too little?

… why you speak too loudly or too softly?

… whether you are a good listener and why?

… why you can’t be silent more often?

… why you gossip about other people?

… your secretiveness preventing clear communication?

… why your heart sometimes seems to get stuck in your throat?

… why you judge yourself for what you say to others?

… why your speech feels incongruent with who you feel you are?

The Holographic Rainbow: From the Heart

“Transformation is through awareness, not analysis.” 1

Master Charles Cannon

 

In a break from the delineation of the seven chakras, now is a good time to expand on the open heart chakra.

The previous blog was an attempt at quieting the mind-field with information that could satisfy the mind’s goal of thinking it can understand the world we face each day… a world of our own making, collectively and individually. With the mind in coherence (balance), there is access to the heart-field.

To expand the heart chakra, however, takes a real commitment to living with an open heart, one that allows for releasing the need to understand and embracing change… not with an attitude of resignation but with heart-felt gratitude. Every person, situation and event in our world is a gift for our contemplation and response. It’s the way we grow through the relative field that is giving us choices, moment-by-moment, to expand our experience of truthful reality.

As Master Charles often says, “who are you choosing to be?” 2 when faced by your challenges. If you can see them as a gift and be grateful, you have already mastered the challenge. You have seen the oneness and most likely are blissful in the process. For if everything is one and there is “no other”, where is the challenge? It’s a holographic mirror showing previous thoughts and concepts for your review and response. Once you have fully experienced them as illusion, you are free. Freedom and bliss are the rewards of each clearing of old data, which increases the gratitude even more…. and, eventually, readiness for the next round, the next wave of consciousness to grace yourself with another mirror.

It’s the end of summer and change is happening for many people returning to academic institutions, from students to teachers to administrators … in all levels from kindergarten to graduate school to business/trade schools. Fall is also coming and changing the weather to cooler temperatures and, in some places, beautiful fall foliage.

So many brilliant opportunities for gracing ourselves with gratitude, love, and appreciation for all that we encounter!   The last blog explained how love is our nature and now there are expanded opportunities to experience that love, within ourselves and as the projected images we encounter.

 

Who are you choosing to be today?

The Holographic Rainbow … Part 4 – The 4th Heart Chakra Vortex

“The yearning for wholeness and freedom that all of us feel reflects our individuated consciousness longing for greater interaction with universal consciousness…  

The Heart-field plays the role of gateway to universal consciousness.” 1

 Master Charles Cannon

Since consciousness is the substratum of the universe (all universes, imagined and real), the densification into polar opposites is the vehicle for creating experience. Without “heat”, we can’t fathom “cold.” And so it is with universal and individual consciousness, mirrors of each other, reacting “as above, so below.” In reality, all is one. In this play of consciousness, they are separated yet attracted in a never-ending search for equilibrium, borne of light and always in motion.

“Quantum physicists state that the material world is really variable fields or frequencies of energy. 

All energy is ultimately reducible to light.” 2

Emory J. Michael

In “The Synchronicity Key,” David Wilcock agrees, writing that “light is alive. Photons are the most basic form of life in the universe … the universe is made of light and love… light being the masculine force that projects outward and provides raw power in the photon, and love being the feminine force that shapes, molds, and directs the light.  The offspring of light and love are matter and biology, all of which is ultimately alive.”3 Quoting the Law of One material, he writes: “You are everything, every being, every emotion, every event, every situation. You are unity. You are infinity. You are love/light, light/love. You are.” 4

And, according to Master Charles Cannon, “loving kindness is the very nature of consciousness. It is in love with itself because there is no other. There is only one blissful consciousness.” 5

The fourth, heart chakra is about love, the center of our 7 energy channels and the gateway from the lower to the upper chakras. According to Master Charles, the dense dimensions (chakra vortexes 1-3) tend to be fragmented and mired in illusion while the subtle dimensions (corresponding to universal consciousness, chakra vortexes 5-7) are more unified and truthful in their expression. “Self-awareness is minimized in the dense dimensions and maximized in the subtle dimensions.  We are all constantly downloading information from the all-possibility of universal consciousness into individual consciousness and thus, self-referentially, we create our experience moment by moment-by-moment.” 6

“We came here to learn better how to love and to be loved …

to know ourselves well enough to accept and love ourselves genuinely, especially

the “shadow side” we like to keep hidden.” 7

Carla Rueckert

The heart chakra form of love is not the passionate, transitory love of the second chakra or the lust of the first chakra … but rather unconditional love. That is, there are no conditions to loving and there is more of a constancy that is palpable. The “loving” is not about “another” but rather a state of being in harmony with oneself. This is called by numerous names, like “balance” or “coherence”. The human journey is about bringing the Mind-field into coherence and removing its disruptive influence on the heart.

When the Mind-field yields through consistent balance,

the Heart-field is actualized and individual and universal consciousness

interact to deliver the experience of true holistic reality

as one blissful consciousness in the here and now of its happening. 8

Master Charles Cannon

When coherent, the heart chakra perceives the world as a unity, an interlocking puzzle of relationships perfectly creating each moment for our maximum growth. “It is necessary to remember that the universe is one of vibration and motion, not solidity … each piece of the universe is affecting each other part, all the time.” 9

According to Anodea Judith in Wheels of Life, “Relationship is the interface between matter and information, and plays a part in all the levels that lie between. In fact, all information could be regarded as awareness of relationship. These patterns give us the concepts which form the basic structure of our thoughts, communication and perception … The fourth chakra level of consciousness perceives the world as an intricate web of relationships, bound together by the force of love.  Once we perceive objects and their activities as relationships, we begin to perceive the perfection, balance, and eternal nature of these relationships … When we understand the perfection of the relationships around us, it beckons the heart to open.”10

Excessive characteristics in the heart chakra are demonstrated by:  Codependency (focusing too much on others), poor boundaries, jealousy, being a martyr, being a pleaser. Deficient characteristics can be:  Antisocial, withdrawn, critical, intolerant, lonely, isolated, lack of empathy, fear of intimacy.11

The Synchronicity Socratic Process of Inquiry has been created by Master Charles Cannon as a method for recognizing and disempowering the illusory “stories” in our lives. As he often says, “events happen and then there are the stories we tell about those events.” This explains how our stories – whether they are accurate recollections of something that happened in fact or not – are turned into illusions by our minds.

With increased will power developed in the third chakra, we can focus our wakefulness to dismantle the stories along these lines in the heart chakra: Self-acceptance & Self-forgiveness. The first leads to the second and the  second leads to forgiveness of “others”, creating the openness to love and harmony.

“Love is the attraction exercised on each unit of consciousness by

the center of the universe in its course of taking shape.” 12

 Teilhard de Chardin

We can practice opening ourselves to experience universal consciousness’ motion of love as it shapes the light as we described at the beginning of this blog. Maybe that’s why the heart is considered to be the center of our “e-motions”, since it where we experience love. The heart is where the cosmic force of love shapes the light into a vibration that we can perceive as a homecoming, a welcoming to enter and rest in joy and peace. We can experience this love in motion even more when our minds and bodies are “still and open” such as in the practice of meditation.

The element represented by the fourth chakra is air. Our breathing keeps air traveling through the body, giving life, “burning toxins, releasing stored emotions, changing body structure and changing consciousness.“13

“If your breathing is in any way restricted, to that degree, so is your life.”14 

 Michael Grant White

“Breath, as related to the element air, is one of the primary keys to opening the heart chakra … The breath can actually change the body structure, and once changed, the body hungers for this increased oxygen supply. It is an evolutionary and healing-oriented process … The mind also can be calmed through control of the breath,”15 and all ancient wisdom traditions have techniques for calming and controlling the breath. Conscious, balanced breathing raises the subtle vibrations within the entire human organism, since breath circulates throughout the entire body and acts more quickly than any other bodily function.

In all of his presentations, Master Charles Cannon encourages everyone to focus on their breath and balance the inward and outward flows. He has also explained how lengthening the in-breath can increase the positive energy which helps to balance the default negative. Also, holding the inward breath at the heart with a focus on flowing feelings of love can expand the amplitude of heart chakra frequencies and increase the experience of blissful reunion with one source consciousness. As Master Charles has often said, “if you want more love in your life, be loving.”

Further exercises to help calm the Mind-field and activate the Heart-field include asking  yourself the questions below. Using the Synchronicity Socratic Process can reveal their illusory beginnings and habitual maintenance. Once this awareness dawns, we see that we have co-created the movies of our lives, with all their harmony and conflict. This can leave us awestruck in the presence of one source consciousness, experienced as love itself. At that point, all that’s left is to ask: “What remains in the stillness of a mind?”

THE HOLOGRAPHIC RAINBOW, Part 3 … The Solar Plexus Chakra Vortex

The third chakra vortex (our solar plexus) is all about identity and power in one’s environment. The first chakra vortex provided the group environment of survival and cultural conditioning. The second chakra vortex started pulling away from safety in order to begin establishing one’s own identity … into a plethora of relationships which mirror back our actions for learning and growth.

Now we move into the third chakra vortex where relationships become more formalized and address again the group conditioning that we started with – this time not from helpless dependence but with a critical eye toward what serves us and what doesn’t. Our ego and will power are being developed, based on the emotional identity beginnings in the second chakra vortex.

The formal groups are further defined as birth family, marriage family, work family, community, etc.  These structures are very powerful and catalytic in our daily lives. Carla Rueckert puts it this way:  “When people live together or work together on a daily basis over a long period of time, the family acts like a house of mirrors. Family interaction can make us feel judgmental concerning another family member. This judgment shows us our own shadow side …  Familiarity can become over-familiarity. We can take each other for granted. We can sometimes descend into enjoying petty grievances and indulging in chronic sniping.1

Families of all types often provide great challenges and are a great gift of reflection and evolution for balancing and integrating those issues we have chosen to address in this lifetime:  “We only get aggravated by the things others do to us when they are also issues we have not developed and redeemed within ourselves. Family members thusly offer us catalyst that allows us to face and resolve these issues. And we will not resolve them until we can love them, just as they are. Since we are one, such catalyst also asks us to acknowledge and work with those issues of our own dark side.”  2

“We cannot change anything unless we accept it.

Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.”  3

Carl Jung

Master Charles Cannon’s explanation of the individuation process shows how we can develop our will power to address our mirrored beliefs for greater evolution: 

  • “Our unconscious mind (and its unconscious distractions) must be made conscious because it is dictating, flavoring our experience. We have to make the unconscious conscious — the whole of our database.  We have to make it conscious so that we can dis-identify from illusory limiting data. Then, detached and wakeful, we can choose who to be, moment-by-moment. We can hold the reins of our experience rather than our unconscious database.” 4

There are two wings of the dove of peace … one is grace and the other is effort. When we take a positive step toward an awakened, holistic lifestyle, we are supported in our intention by the grace of the one source consciousness. More and more truthful choices appear and life becomes magical and miraculous.

Grace can also be seen in the quantum mechanics application of the “string theory,” which is the most convincing model yet that proves the oneness of all and everything. Just imagine the torus energy field that surrounds each of us as surging electromagnetic attraction and repulsion frequencies catalyzing our unconscious intentions and beliefs. Our responses then send information-laden frequencies back through the torus field, setting the stage for the next download of catalysts. If we’ve made the unconscious conscious, then the next download will be different than it would have been (and much easier).

We receive grace from universal consciousness in the form of life and opportunity but it’s also up to us to “grace ourselves.” So, the two wings in this balancing act are effort and grace.  Life is really so simple … “what goes around, comes around” or “what you give is what you get.”  All we ever see are holographic mirrors; all we ever experience is ourselves.

 “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” 5

Henry Ford

And, if you’re really serious about human mastery, you’ll find an authentic master spiritual teacher. They will facilitate even more grace appearing in your life due to their resonance with illuminating universal frequencies that empower everything in their extended and powerful torus energy field (including you).

Other issues in the third chakra include sexuality, always active in the first three chakras. It is first experienced as lust in the first chakra, then as diffusive personal relationships in the second chakra, and now as more formalized relationships in the third.  Sometimes the egoic power of dominance rears its ugly head. To possess or to be possessed is a major catalyst in the human journey and can result in much fear. Sometimes situations result in shame, which is “the demon of the third chakra ….. antithetical to self-esteem and personal power.” 6

Metabolism of the body is also ruled by the third chakra with its ever-present fiery nature. The digestive system is a major factor in the balance of energy (strength or weakness). Good intentions cannot be actualized when the energy isn’t there to support it. The basic right of the third chakra, according to Anodea Judith, is the “right to act” and balance in the body is needed to fulfill that right.

Thus, the third chakra is a center of profound power and can either be used to evolve to the transformative heart or block it and keep its power in density through story-telling, which maintains unrelenting cycles of unresolved issues and suffering. According to Carla Rueckert, “our primary job is to develop the lower three chakras with a fierce and ruthless will.” 7  Since will power is such a critical development, for good or ill, it’s important to recognize it in ourselves and steer the energy into a form of positive, “grace-full” determination to consciously evolve.

In our first three chakras, our polarized human nature fluctuates considerably more than the chakra vortexes from the heart upwards. Often there are wide swings here between over-stimulation and desire for avoidance. An under-active third chakra tends to manifest as:  “Passivity, lack of energy, poor digestion, tendency to be cold, tendency toward submission, blaming, low self-esteem/lack of confidence, weak will/ poor self-discipline, use of stimulants.” 8  The over-active traits are:  “dominating, controlling, competitive, arrogant, ambitious, hyperactive, stubborn, driven (compulsively focused toward goals), attracted to sedatives.” 9

It’s helpful to remember to keep a constant focus on keeping the energy flowing through our energy channels. This can be more easily remembered when that intent is attached to the intent to watch our breath—moment-to-moment— in the awareness of our oneness with all that we observe.

The Synchronicity Socratic Process of Inquiry has been created by Master Charles Cannon as a method for recognizing and disempowering the illusory “stories” in our lives. As he often says, “events happen and then there are the stories we tell about those events.” This explains how our stories – whether they are accurate recollections of something that happened in fact or not – are turned into illusions by our minds. The resulting reality is not real; it is virtual. Using the Socratic Process to dismantle our illusory stories (and the virtual reality they have fabricated) begins to create a truthful reality instead.

To help clear the third, solar plexus chakra vortex, it is helpful to ask the questions below and then do the Synchronicity Socratic Process on them … revealing their illusory beginnings and habitual maintenance. Once this awareness dawns, we see that we have co-created the movies of our lives, with all their harmony and conflict. This can leave us awestruck in the presence of one source consciousness. At that point, all that’s left is to ask: “What remains in the stillness of a mind?”

 

Solar Plexus Questions   (answer these in a one, bottom-line sentence)

What is your primary belief about the level of recognition you receive in your life?

What is your primary belief about your level of self-esteem – good, poor, or haven’t even considered?

What is your primary belief about your ability to be direct with people or using passive-aggressive techniques to get what you want?

What is your primary belief about your energy levels being sufficient to carry you through your day?

What is your primary belief about why you are competitive rather than cooperative sometimes?

What is your primary belief about whether you are confident about meeting demands or whether they are overwhelming?

What is your primary belief about how much blaming you do in a day (and who gets the blame)?

What is your primary belief about your level of ambition for your life?

What is your primary belief about why you are controlling or submissive?

What is your primary belief about your need for stimulants and/or relaxants during your day?

What is your primary belief about your level of reliability and self-discipline?

Living in the Real World – Part 2 – Four Questions

What remains when the mind becomes still?

All spiritual traditions have taught that inquiry is the path to enlightenment. Reality, it turns out, is not some kind of known, solid state, but an emerging process of discovery, something fluid and variable.

Our last blog introduced uncertainty about our experienced reality. We wrote: “Is this reality real or is it a figment of my perceiving apparatus, the mechanism of my individual consciousness? If so, is what I perceive to be real actually an illusion? Hmn, maybe I should begin to question a whole range of my personal beliefs. Is this real, is that true, what about this other?”

Author presenter Byron Katie poses four questions:
Question 1: Is it true? …
Question 2: Can you absolutely know it’s true? …
Question 3: How do you react—what happens—when you believe that thought? …
Question 4: Who would you be without the thought?



These four questions can be very useful in our exploration of reality. First, in relationship to something, anything in our lives: is it true? At first glance, it might seem ridiculous to challenge “facts.” For instance, “I just got fired.” Or, “I just got a promotion.” Or, “My wife just left me.” Or, “My fiancée just said ‘Yes!”

These seem to be factual. Are they? In each case, it’s easy to consider the surface appearance of what’s happened and agree that it’s true. But what about under the surface? What’s going on there? This explains why inquiry is so vital, it helps us dive deeper, to discern other, contributing causative factors.

Eyes Closed Man

For instance, if you lost your job, why? You may have underperformed. Maybe the boss had it in for you. Perhaps the company was bought out and you were down sized. In other words, there’s history. Getting fired is a seemingly singular result but it actually has many causes. And saying “I got fired!” may not be absolutely true on it’s own, without taking these many contributing factors into account.

Byron Katie uses inquiry to explore the feeling attached to what’s happening, which we also accept as fact. So, “I got fired” can also mean “I’m a failure,” or, “The boss is a jerk.” What about these “facts?” Are they true? No, because they are generalized judgments that likewise fail to acknowledge background factors.

There’s always more to discover when we commit to the path of inquiry. Her second question is, “Can you absolutely know it’s true?” This is an easy one to answer. No! Can you know that it is absolutely true that you are a failure… or a success? No. Never. Because life moves on. Failure today could turn into success tomorrow. It’s raining now so we might say, “The weather here is terrible,” and then the sun comes out and the weather is great. Which is absolutely true, that the weather is terrible or that the weather is great? Obviously, neither.




Her third question is fascinating: “How do you react—what happens—when you believe that thought?” So, let’s try a different thought: “I am separate from God.” Is this true, can we prove it’s absolutely true, and what happens when we believe this thought? It becomes our reality, not because it’s true but because we’ve chosen to believe it. As Henry Ford once said, “Whether you believe it or not, you’re right.”

Eyes Closed Question

The fourth question takes us back to the beginning of this blog. Her question is, “Who would you be without the thought?” We asked, “What remains when the mind becomes still?”

What remains is you, the reality of you. You are the one, the One, behind those thoughts, hiding in the busyness of daily life and/or the search for truth. Either way, distracted by details or trying to find God, we have deceived ourselves into believing that we must do this or that, go here or there, understand something, change behaviors, etc. before we are truly one with God.

This is the primary illusion we suffer in but it dissolves with a single choice, to accept a new definition of reality and establish this as the foundation for our daily living experience. Here’s a declaration we might employ: “I am one with all life.” Then, using these four questions, we could use inquiry to deepen our present time experience, starting from the place we once hoped to eventually reach. Then we just deepen our experience of this “truth” over time, because we surrender the false belief that reality is an answer and enjoy the process of inquiry, which never ends.

The path to enlightenment is not long, it’s deep.

Living in the Real World – Beyond A Thousand Disguises

“We meet ourselves time and time again in a thousand disguises
on the path of life.”

~ Carl Jung

The reality we experience is not actually real, it’s an illusion. From a quantum perspective, reality is a hologram.

We humans are ingenious. Our perceiving mechanism distorts and adapts what it perceives into a virtual reality that is more like a mirage in the desert than the original. This is a process akin to flattening our world into a map. The world is not flat, although people used to believe that. Pictures from space have proven that the world is round. And, of course, millions of people have travelled around the world, ending up where they began without reversing course so that seems to confirm it.

Knowing this, it seems incredible to suggest that we still do believe the world is flat in many other ways with many other proofs, but it’s true. For instance, many believe that some humans are inherently superior to others, by virtue of their skin color or ethnicity, or gender. This is an illusion. The more we perceive a mirage like this, the more we believe it’s real. Then, all our subsequent descriptions of “reality” are false. As Carl Jung said in the opening quote, we are meeting ourselves over and over again, disguised as “others.” We don’t know this, so we behave like kittens frightened by our own reflection in a mirror!



In fact, there is no other. All of us share one essence, one life energy. If we could see truly and get beyond our illusory perceptions, we would see this hologram of one consciousness that we share. As far as other people go, are we really seeing them as they are, or are we experiencing our stories about them, the disguises of ourselves we have projected onto “them?”

As human consciousness evolves through ongoing life experience, we evolve from illusion to truth and increasingly subtle holistic awareness develops. This is a progressive change from fiction to non-fiction which proceeds on to witnessing consciousness, watching ourselves, our true selves.

These days, the term “fake news” is often employed to avoid facing facts, but we can readily understand why people fall for it. All reporting is distorted, based on the illusion of separation and the descriptions that unfold from that. Everyone is enculturated into that illusion; everything is distorted from the beginning. Perceiving separation is an adaptation of what is into what is not… then we believe it and tell stories about it. That’s the media!

The good news, not deemed worthy of reporting by media, is that there is an awakening in more and more people to the basic fact that something is fundamentally wrong. What’s making a difference now is that science is getting involved and that helps because so many people feel science validates edgy ideas. Quantum science is actually providing a gateway into a new understanding for many people. Simply becoming aware of this simple premise – that the reality we think is real is not – and that it is backed by scientific studies… well, maybe we could now consider taking the idea seriously!

So, we begin to question: “Is this reality real or is it a figment of my perceiving apparatus, the mechanism of my individual consciousness? If so, is what I perceive to be real actually an illusion? Hmn, maybe I should begin to question a whole range of my personal beliefs. Is this real, is that true, what about this other?”




The root of all mystical traditions is inquiry. We begin with our own mind and beliefs. That process is usually initiated by some sort of personal awakening, some kind of quantum leap, which I have called the awakening impulse. We suddenly have enough expanded awareness to catch a glimpse of the real reality… and it haunts us from that moment on. Now we begin questioning, looking into things, and that drives the dismantling process for our illusory constructs. In a sense, we flip that old saying, “I’ll believe it when I see it” to “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

Here’s the real question: what remains when the mind becomes still? This explains why meditation is so vital, why quieting the mind is essential. Our spiritual journey is one of expanding awareness to traverse various milestones in personal evolution of incrementally increasing awareness.

We shift out of a belief in and perception of duality into the actual experience of non-duality, the unity of all and everything, called by many names. And we begin to see beyond the disguises that present themselves to us as the illusory “other.” We are one.
