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.

The Inner Eye And The Ego Lens

Life is an art, and like perfect art it should be self-forgetting; there ought not be any trace of effort or painful feeling. Life ought to be lived as a bird flies through the air or as a fish swims in the water. Zen aims at preserving your vitality and your native freedom, and above all, the completeness of your being.

D.T. Suzuki understood the power of the ego. He understood the separation we experience in this dualistic reality. Life should be an effortless journey, but that is not what we create when we allow our ego to act as the complete self.

The ego is a lens for the inner eye or self. The ego has the power to change and disconnect with the eye, when we allow it to control our thoughts and perceptions. If we only perceive what the ego says is truth and believable, we experience the pain of separation in some way. The ego acts as the complete self. The inner self is hidden under the mask of egotistical beliefs, and we experience a deep lack of freedom. Lack of freedom is a painful course.

We have the ability to choose what course to take on our journey. We have the ability to alter that journey by changing the course. But in order to do that, we must thoughtfully reconnect the ego with the inner eye. The inner eye waits patiently behind the ego. When we begin to use our inner eye to perceive, we turn our ego back to a lens. That lens displays reality as the art of being free.

A Portion Of An Electromagnetic Thread

And this deep power in which we exist, and whose beatitude is all accessible to us, is not only self-sufficing and perfect in any hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject and the object, are one. We see the world piece by piece, as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole, of which these are the shining parts, is the soul.

Emerson’s 1841 essay The Over-Soul is filled with new age information. The world we call reality is a connected mass of consciousness. Within that mass are smaller masses of consciousness that function as a part of the whole. Each mass is unique, but every mass shares a common deep power or what we might call a portion of an electromagnetic thread. We can call our portion any name, but we call it the soul thanks to our religious education.

The soul is the seer and the seen; the object and the subject; matter and non-matter. The soul expresses itself within specific realities in endless ways. We don’t perceive the soul as a multi-dimensional entity because that premise conflicts with what we have been taught to believe.

But, when all the air is squeeze out of those distorted beliefs, we discover that we are just one portion of our soul. We experience our reality in order to expand the awareness of all portions of the soul. That expansion is then expressed by the whole electromagnetic thread that connects all that is. That expression is the reality we all know, and call by its man-made name−God.

The Hard Shell Of Rubbish

It is the common heart, of which all sincere conversation is the worship, to which all right action is submission; it’s that overpowering reality that confutes our tricks and talents, and constrains everyone to pass for what he is, and to speak from his character, and not from his tongue, and which evermore tends to pass into our thought and hand, and become wisdom and virtue, and power, and beauty

Emerson’s 1841 essay, The Over-Soul is filled with little gems of knowing. The 19th century was not what some call “The New Age,” but it certainly was the beginning of the end of religious tomfoolery. We haven’t reached the end of the silliness that surrounds our ritualistic behavior, but we can see a crack in the hard shell of rubbish that has controlled our ideas about God and our connection to that entity.

Emerson and others realized that we are connected, and can function as God when we allow what Emerson calls the heart to be our mentor. Our inner voice or heart is a whole part of the whole of God. The God that is in all things. The God that expresses itself as the universe, and everything in it. When we use our inner voice to fulfill our desires, our intentions are filled with virtue and wisdom, power and beauty. The hard shell of rubbish continues to crack. We start to understand that tricks and talents are the expressions of the common form of God within us.

The Fringe Of Our Endless Sea

The soul looks steadily forwards, creating a world for her, leaving worlds behind her. She has no dates, no rites, nor persons, nor specialties, nor men. The soul knows only the soul; the web of events is the flowing robe in which she is clothed.

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that thought in his 1841 essay, The Over-Soul. We are just beginning to understand the diverse worlds in which the soul frolics and expands. Our ability to focus on one world leaves us feeling lost. It seems we only read one chapter in a limitless chapter book, and expect to understand the complete story. We allow our imagination to crash into a self-created rocky shore on the fringe our endless sea.

The 19th century was a monumental period of growth for the human race. We battled the evils we created with religion, and fought our inner demons with the power of God. The soul was an invisible entity. It was tethered to narrow-minded rituals, and false truths. Emerson knew better. He let the world know that we are free from the insanity of limits even though we create them. He knew we created them in order to expand from them.

Every roadblock we create is a challenge for the ego not the soul. As Emerson so eloquently points out, we create one world in order to expand in another. The soul lives in all of our worlds, and accepts the flowing robes of diversity it creates in all of them.
