The Awareness Of Understanding

Great understanding is broad and unhurried, Little understanding is cramped and busy.

Chuang Tzu, the 4th century BCE Chinese philosopher, was influential in the development of Chan Buddhism, which is also known as Zen. Two important actions within the human psyche are understanding and awareness. Understanding and awareness have no limits until we create them. Understanding, as we define it, is the knowledge of grasping an idea within our mental process. Awareness is the wisdom within that idea and process. Within the self-created boundaries of our understanding we experience the action of energy within each idea. Each idea expands our mental process, and the perception of who we are. We communicate that perception in several ways.

We may perceive understanding causes pain and suffering. If we do, our awareness of who we are sits in a pool of doubt. We may perceive understanding as power. If we do, our awareness of who we are is enriched by that perception. Either way, our perception of understanding and awareness changes who we think we are.

The world, as we know it now, is separated by our understanding of it. To some of us, the world is cramped and busy, and for others it is broad and unhurried. Each perception is valid to the perceiver. Each perception expands the awareness of understanding in some way.

As Chuang Tzu said: There is no good or bad, only thinking makes it so.

We think we understand what we are aware of now, and tomorrow we think we will still be aware of what we understood yesterday. But awareness and understanding are not really measured in time. They are measured by our perception of the energy within our experiences. Who we think we are changes when the action of energy within our understanding and awareness is altered by our perception of the energy experienced in each action.

Dream Journey

All night long I think of life’s labyrinth Impossible to visit the tenants of Hades.

The authoritarian attempt to palm a horse off as deer Was laughable. As was the thrust at The charmed life of the dragon. Contemptible!

It’s in the dark that eyes probe earth and heaven, In dream that the tormented seek present, past.

Enough! The mountain moon fills the window.

The lonely fall through, the garden rang with cricket song.

Betsugen Enshi, the 14th century Japanese monk, wrote those interesting thoughts. Enshi takes us on one of his dream journeys, and we discover an action filled world that exists without a beginning or an end. Our dreams don’t begin or end. It is our awareness of dreams that has a beginning and an end. We become aware of a dream, and then we leave it. In terms of time, we dream a dream tonight, and then we leave it tonight. But the dream continues in its own form of electrical intensity.

Our dreams are not a reflection of our physical being. They are a by-product of the inner self and our physical being. Dreams are part chemical reaction, and part transformed energy that moves from one state to another. Our dream world, and the ideas that develop in that state, ensure the survival of each individual. In the dream world, we experience death as well as an altered version of physical life. We move from one layer of dream energy to another in order to experience the value fulfillment of manifesting our ideas and desires.

Our dreams are filled with endless actions, and images that act with uncanny mobility and incredible speed. We can experience a lifetime within a minute in this electrical charged world, and never age. We do all of that each night as the crickets sing, and the moon fills our multi-dimensional window.

A Deep Cleaning Process

Self-honesty is a tool without which you will find it very difficult to grow. Without it, you find that you disguise and dress up the reasons for your actions and reactions. It is part of your fear that you are not worthy and fear of judgment by others; in other words, having to be 'seen to be' more than you think you are.

By being honest with yourself you have the most wonderful tool to discover your secret fears and hidden beliefs about yourself and your reality. In the embracement of those fears you become centered and strong. This is called sovereignty, from whence comes your creative choice points, to grow into your own power.

Jani King wrote those thoughts in her book, The Gift. Self-honesty is a hard tool to find, especially when it is covered by years of fear, guilt and judgments. We all come into the world with self-honesty, but we soon discover that the people around us don’t use it, so we put that important tool in a file in our mind, and mark it obsolete. We become another person for the sake of conformity, balance and most of all fear. We modify our thinking so half-truths, and false assumptions become our standard truths.

Digging self-honesty out of the rubble of superficial acceptance is a deep cleaning process. It’s a process that takes the courage to face our self-dishonesty, and forgive our altered self for using it. We used self-dishonesty in place of self-honesty for a purpose. We want to conform and have meaning in our world of facades. Self-dishonesty gives us a false sense of worth, until we discover our innate worth. When the light of self-honesty is turned on, we activate the power to honestly be who we expect to be.

Self-Created Lessons

Ethical people recognize their mistakes as simply mistakes. They heal the past and themselves by correcting their errors, forgiving themselves, and learning as much as they can in the process. In this way they gradually become free of the past, their minds cease to be junkyards of painful memories and guilty secrets, and they come fresh and clean to each new moment of experience.

Guilt ridden people see their mistakes as unforgivable sins and punish themselves unmercifully. They do not heal or learn from the past; rather, they continue to punish themselves for it and thereby remain tied to it.

Roger Walsh M.D. PhD wrote those thoughts in his 2010 book Essential Spirituality. Dr. Walsh does have a knack for explaining human behavior in simple terms. We all have felt the pain of guilt, and the freedom of forgiveness in one way or another. The big question is: Why do some of us hold on to the guilt, and create a life of suffering? The answer is not a simple one. Some of us don’t want to release the pain. The guilt is our cross, and we are willing to drag it until our bodies break down under the stress.

Other people know how to forgive themselves. They know that every experience is rooted in the action of our consciousness. They realize mistakes are self-created lessons in awareness. Our consciousness operates within a code system. That code system helps direct our focus. We bring in experiences and assign a specific significance to each one of them. Other data is blocked, but that data can be, and usually is, significant in other code systems.

Consciousness code systems are rooted in molecular construction, and they function within a certain frequency within the spectrum of light. Light values are the alphabet of every code system. We are unfamiliar with this spectrum within consciousness, but at some point all of us will understand it, and use it to make sense of our mistakes.

Inexhaustible Creativity

You can know something which you are not aware that you know.

Augustine was influenced by the work of Plotinus. His 5th century knowledge is still an important part of the Christian faith. Augustine’s words about knowing are certainly true. We do have stored knowledge, and we don’t know we have it. Our cellular structure is composed of conscious atoms and molecules. Our cells have a certain kind of memory that functions within time, but the cells are also capable of knowing outside of our linear time boarder. The cells deal with physical probabilities as well as non-physical events. That combination alters our cellular formation.

Our cells are constantly dying and being born again, and that process does not betray the inviolate nature of the cells. The “dead” cells are not dead. They just cease being physical. The new cells hold the knowledge of the dead cells within them, so no information is ever lost. There is inexhaustible creativity within our cells. Our cells contain the knowledge we use to function physically, but they also hold knowledge of the past and future. They constantly assess and compare probabilities and probable action using the genetic information within them.

Our most intricate behavior patterns are kept on file in the cells, and that enables them to make predictive judgments about our environment, and our personal reality. We know more that we think we know, but we don’t use that knowledge because we don’t believe we know what we know. We always use our hidden knowledge even though we are not consciously aware of using it.

Emotionally Charged Invisible Wires

The world is like a multidimensional exotic plant growing in space and time, each thought, dream, imaginative encounter, hope or fear, growing naturally into its own bloom. It is a plant of incredible variety, never for a moment the same, in which each smallest root, leaf, stem or flower has a part to play and is connected to the whole.

Jane Roberts wrote several books on the nature of our unknown reality. She was able to explain some unexplainable facts about our world, and she used simple terms to do it. Our primary and secondary educational system doesn’t teach us what we should know about the multidimensional world we live in. We are not educated enough to sense the emotionally charged, invisible wires that connect us to our environment. Our inner intent is covered by an economic and religious film, and we suffer fear, anxiety and hate because of that pseudo-film.

Each event we experience is the direct result of our intents and beliefs, and when we understand that fact, we are able to sense the self as a plant rooted in the rich soil of our emotionally charged invisible wires, and the pot of expanding consciousness.

Our inner intent always forms exterior alterations. Consciousness forms our environment, and that means our environment is conscious. All consciousness is self-aware, but different forms of consciousness may not be aware in the same way. Some forms of consciousness do not reflect on their own conditions, because they may not need to. We apply our rules of consciousness to other life forms, and overlook or ignore their conscious intent. We then feel separated from other forms of consciousness, but those emotionally charged invisible wires are still connected in some way. The incredible variety of consciousness, within our mass reality, gives our world the fertilizer it need to expand every aspect of consciousness in a manner that reflects the nature of our unknown reality.

Mental Hierarchy

When we speak of beings of higher dimensions, we are speaking of the rate of vibratory frequency, not as better than or more important than humanity. There is no being anywhere who is more than another. The angel is no more than the human. The angel simply knows more of who it is. You are still learning. There is no hierarchy within Divinity.

Jani King, the Australian psychologist, reminds us that we tend to put our thoughts into understandable hierarchies. We put good thoughts together and rate them. We do the same when it comes to negative thoughts. People, places and things all have a place in our mental hierarchy. We label each one with a hierarchical word that describes our physical experiences. We also use that hierarchy to label what we believe about the non-physical.

The non-physical is harder to describe and label with physical words, but we try. We use the same hierarchy system, but as Jani points out, that doesn’t mean that’s the way it is in the non-physical. Our mental hierarchy system is an ego driven system that conforms to what we believe about our reality. We forget that we live in more than one reality. Our dreams confirm that fact.

So what is the method of distinction within the divine reality? As we move through our reality we discover more of ourselves. We start to acutely sense our vibrational feelings in certain situations. We begin to understand the nature of those vibrations, and how they impact our ego. Being human is not just about ego values. As we go through our human metamorphosis, we find the value in being who we are. We become aware that we are more than ego, and we cultivate those vibrational feelings. Our mental hierarchies change, and we accept the value in learning how to appreciate all our thoughts and experiences for what they are. They are messages from our non-physical reality.
