Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not the multiplicity and confusion of things. ~ Sir Isaac Newton
Just as one does not need to know how a car is built to be able to drive it, all we really need be concerned with is how to get the results we want out of life. Or get from point A to point B.
However for many of us, it can really help wrap our brains around a new concept if we can see how it works.
Below are just a few illustrations to help you get from Point A to Point B. (Peace and Happiness)
Are you familiar with the New Age concept of being the Observer? Well, it is ver similar to, if not based on a very old Esoteric teaching in the Mystery Schools.
Super Consciousness in the Mystery Schools is what many would call: God, Yahweh, Allah, Krishna, Brahma, Elohim, The All that Is, or maybe you know it as something similar.
Sub Consciousness is what pumps our blood and digests our food or otherwise runs "things" without our conscious awareness or attention. Have you ever driven home from a party and not remember driving? How do you think that happened?
Self Consciousness is our Ego or Body consciousness. It is the reality that we are now, or have the ability to become aware of and experience.
Simply put, it works something like this:
Super Consciousness enters our brain from "above". It selects then gives/downloads the reality we are here to experience in our life time. Hence the feeling we are here at this time for a reason.
Sub Conscious then in turn through our five senses projects itself "out there" to create the physical reality we are meant to experience.
Self Consciousness or ego then Observes the reality given to us to experience from "above".
Most people are familiar with, and believe in the concept of Karma. But when you understand how and why it works, you can really play with it and start having a lot of fun!
Mysticism teaches there are two forms of Karma. One is when the action and the reaction happens in this lifetime. And the other is when they happen in different life times. The below is only explaining how it works in this lifetime so you can start making changes immediately.
Once you understand how we experience our reality, and that there really is no out there "out there" this begins to makes a lot of sense.
Carefully consider the below, and the answer should become painfully obvious. Here is a clue ~
Why should we love our neighbors as ourselves? Because they are a part of ourselves.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Love this neighbor as thyself
What comes around goes around
If you want others to be happy practice compassion. If you want to be happy.practice compassion. .What you do to others you do to yourself.
The universe is mental. The All is mind.
The part can never be well unless the whole is well. ~ Plato
Every actin has an equal or greater reaction.
We are all one.
All that Exists is Now.
Where are you when you think of the past or future? You are in the present moment.
Consider a movie on DVD. The entire movie from beginning to end is all on one disc. BUT the only thing we see is the part that the laser is pointing to. t theTh
There is no "Out there" Out there.
So the argument ususally goes something like this: If that is true, then how do we all see, smell and hear the same stuff? As Sir Isaac Newton may have said ~ "Easy, its all in your head."
Have you ever loved a song, or a food that someone else can't stand? Or maybe they think its only average when you think its amazing? It is the same food, person or experience. Right? How does that happen? You both are hearing or tasting the same thing, One can call it preference or tastes, but in reality Everything we experience is our Subjective Perspective. Which is ultimately what I hope to help you realize is ALL we are and ALL we Have, which is the Truth that will Set us Free.
Consider the universe as a giant electromagnetic field, very similar to WIFI or Television waves or frequencies that are invisible to the naked eye, but that which we can only see/experience on our cell phones, computers or TV sets.
But not only do we have different subjective perspectives (and reasons for them), we also have different hardware from which to experience the world "around us".
Consider watching a new high budget block buster movie on and old B&W TV, 32" High Def TV, iPhone 8 ~ iPad or 70" 4K HDR TV with Surround Sound. It is the same movie, but your brain (hardware) will also play a large part in your experience of it. Just like your understanding, or lack of understanding of it will...
It is what it is.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
