The self reflects the world. The world reflects the self. The self projects the world. The world is a projection of the self.
What is held in the self, is seen in the world. What is held in the world, is seen in the self. What is sought in the self, is sought in the world. What is sought in the world, is sought within the self too. There is a bi-directional correlation, correspondence, and reflection.
People who want to rule and who seek ruler-ship positions in the world -> Actually want to rule themselves too. You cannot rule the world right, unless you rule your own mind first. All qualities extend to the self first -> Then they go outward.
Controlling one’s own mind is needed -> Before it is extended to controlling other minds. The view of the self -> Extends to the view of the world. People on the journey of understanding their selves -> In effect are also on a journey of understanding the world.
When one is on an inner journey of growth -> There is a natural looking up to many things in the world, and a recognition of many possibilities. When one is attempting to get security within, for their identity -> Then everything outside that would alter that is seen as a threat. Similarly, the way you treat others -> Is a reflection of the way you treat yourself.
True double standard does not exist in the psychic plane or the subconscious. There is always direct correlation and extension. Evil is actually simply “small identity”. Because “small identity” will attempt to destroy everything that is not that. Evil or Good in this realm, is just a question of how inclusive or large your “identity” is.
I had this wacky train of thought come to me. Hope viewers of this post find it entertaining/interesting.
The whole idea of romantic relationship is a societal/cultural/civilizational/human-organization based construct. If all humans just lived wild, Males would randomly have sex with 100s of women, and probably have 30-40 children each or more. The male would not know whohis child is. Also, there seems to be no easily observable causality linking the sexual act to the consequence of pregnancy, and the consequent children that come from that.
There is just a wild instinctual desire for the male. Similarly women too feel this same wild desire, in certain time periods, and depending on their mood they may run away, resist, or allow the sex to happen. The man in his prime years would probably be more motivated, since he can easily manage to do 1 or 2 every day without any time-off periods.
The things is, after the sex, the woman too may not be able to causally connect the act of sex to the pregnancy that happens after. Could she not take it as something that just naturally happened from God? So the causality is not known from either side, male or female.
The female would bond with the child from the oxytocin and breastfeeding period, and that bond may result in the child and mother recognizing each other. But there is no way the child will know the father, and neither will the father know. It could be anybody. If the woman has had sex with 5 men in a day, and gets pregnant, how would she have any idea who caused the child OR if the 5 acts had anything to do with the child at all? The first symptoms of pregnancy after all come much later, probably a fortnight later at least, right?
Another aspect is that, if the child grows up away from the mother from a young age, it is doubtful if the mother can recognize the child. The child may recognize the mother, because her age may not change her appearance as much in the 15-45 zone, but even that may not be easy.
So it seems like the entire notion of civilization/society is to regulate birth and to ensure the spread of resources to everyone. By putting the responsibility on the father, the father is deterred from following his raw instinct and seeking new mates. Similarly, a responsibility is also put on the mother, to take care of the child for much longer than she might have otherwise done. The socialization/enculturation/civilization process is to suppress the sex instinct’s wildness, and instead redirect it into the structures of society, that is, to gain status/position/rank and then seek out the opp-sex of similar status/position/rank etc. This I guess spawns the whole matrix of mating/romantic fantasy and social status/rank/position/specialness. The fantasy of being the elite and mating with other elite, Like the notion of kings/queens, emperors/empresses, prince/princesses and so on.
Names are used in societal organization to TAG the person. It is an identifier similar to your debit card number, social security number and so on. Similarly even the roles of mother/father are tags society putson folk. Like XXX is the mother of XXXX —–OR—— XXXX is the father of XXXX. Also the agreement of marriage itself, is really a contract/agreement that serves the children who will be born from the mating of the 2.
Marriage was essentially a system created for the bringing up of children. Nowadays people use it for companionship, but that is a conscious contract of sort, and it does not have much binding, since both the parties are independent. It is only the child that is born helpless, and needs a lot of nurture at least till the age of 10.
There seems to big rift in the way “natural biology drives/impulses/instincts” operate and in the way we view everything from the “societal/cultural/civilizational lens”. The former is generally subsumed into the latter in the process of socialization. I guess, based on seeing the consequences, ramifications, and aftermath, birth causation etc. – Wise people with vision created systems such as culture/society/civilization to organize and regulate the different drives so that the system could serve in the longer term as a win-win for everyone. Society/Culture then seems like a long distance vision of how people can live together and mutually fulfill all their needs . As more needs get satisfied, people may become conscious of finer and subtler needs, which would gradually make their way into modifying society’s formal or informal structures.
You can only connect with or experience the seed outside you, If it awakens the corresponding seed inside you. Let’s put a scale of 1-10 to this seed aliveness. Generally there is also a threshold of aliveness needed for you to become conscious of the seed aliveness and its activity. People who get overwhelmed and overstimulated easily, have a lower threshold, While people who gravitate to extreme levels of stimulation, have a higher threshold.
Resonance with others (i.e. between your seed and their seed activity) will excite your own seeds. This excitation, amplification, or enhancement is then felt within. If you have a low threshold for consciousness of these things, The resonance will often appear to bring back to life, seemingly dead seeds within you.
We often seek others or cues that will stimulate the seeds within us we identify with and want to enhance. For instance, say you have a seed desire within you that wants to go window shopping at the mall. Let’s say it is below your threshold of consciousness (threshold: 4, and this seed is at 2) If someone else, a friend say, comes along with the same seed desire but at aliveness level 8, he/she will be clearly conscious of this want. If they then ask you whether you want to join them in a trip to the mall, this proposal will now increase your seed aliveness temporarily in their presence to 6 because of resonance, and you will become dimly aware of your own desire to join them and may likely say yes to it.
If you have a very limited ego identity you will only identify with some seeds and try to get rid of most of the others. Accordingly you will also have a very narrow relationship with the outside world, limited to only things and people that maintain or grow those ‘identified-with seeds’. If your ego identity is diffuse and vast, you will be an empath and be able to connect through many many more seeds. That is about identity. The next variables are about energetic activation and consciousness threshold. If your consciousness threshold is very low, say 1/10, then you are like an owl, super sensitive and can see in the dark. You will probably get overwhelmed easily and perceive a ton of things. If your consciousness threshold is very high, say 7/10, then you will only feel seed activities within that cross that threshold. So there will be a constant need for very high stimulation. If your net seed energies and activity are at a low ebb (<3/10) then you will feel depressed, empty, and blank. Whereas when your net seed energies are high (>7/10) you will feel alive, rich, and euphoric.
Some drugs enhance the seed energy which are generally called stimulants. While certain drugs lower the consciousness thresholds in different ways like LSD. The drugs could do both too. Both result in an enrichment of experience we call high or euphoria. Meditation in silence generally is to lower the consciousness threshold, so that you end up feeling rich even with lowered activation. Whereas LSD might stimulate the energies to a higher pitch causing a bunch of seed activity to cross your consciousness threshold. Also, if you already have lower consciousness threshold coupled with LSD, then your euphoria and richness will be overwhelmingly higher than someone with the higher threshold. Meditation lowers the threshold, while psychedelics raise the seed powers. So they both assist each other.
The morphogenetic field is also the influence by resonance from others to us. It is sort of like a quantum entanglement.
Diagram explanation: # The left circle in the diagram shows all of the seed potentials that make you. # The right side shows the expansion of this circle. The central circle shows what you identify with and own as yourself, and the other smaller circles around show the seeds within you that you have projected onto others. # The hashed portion in black on the circles in the right side show what the others actually are, whereas the colored portion in those hashed circles shows the qualities in you projected to them and experience as them.
From the psyche point of view: # When born you are whole. # Then you project onto the mother, father, siblings, other kids, society, culture, celebs, the adults, the animals, the world and so on. # There are a series of fragments created which is what begins the process of projection and relationship. # We are relating with seeds of ourselves in others, which have sprouted in different circumstances, and that is the reason for the recognition and resonance. # After all, you experience all others and the world only within yourself. # So the relationship is from the attraction between the same kinds of seeds. # The part of yourself you identify with and own, those seeds get the necessary nurturing and grow into the trees in your brain. # The part of yourself you dis-identify with and disown, do not get nurturing, they remain as seeds, but you recognize the trees in others which have come from the same seed you have, and are therefore attracted to them. # The aversion happens, when we resist the attraction towards the common seeds in others we have disowned within ourselves. # We enjoy, suffer, and live through all other bodies (human, animal, insect, fish etc.) # We are only conscious of a tiny fraction of ourselves, which is what gets projected out as a tiny fraction of others we experience too. # The larger your consciousness gets, the more you recognize all the seed potentials within you, and this correspondingly also vastly enlarges your recognition of others too by the greater resonances that follow.
Human life is a descent into earth as a physical form, While death is the ascent back to the non-physical. A woman’s body is tuned to the cycles of the moon. The egg that is produced every month is a seed possibility. An egg gets created once every month from the age of puberty until menopause, From say 13 to 50, i.e. for 37 years. The egg will however take a human form only if it receives the necessary inspiration.
If the right inspiration is received, things move forward, And like a potter’s wheel, the human being is then forged by the forces of time. Like a paint smear from start to finish, it starts thick and fades out. Time in the womb – Birth – Infancy – Childhood – Teenage years – Adulthood – Old age…and so on. We start off as a witness of the body, and over time grow into our power to control our faculties. The body vehicle is a continuously transforming vehicle going through its own process from birth, growth, stability, reduction, to death.
Everyone else is moving in their own path in time, However I will experience all of them relative to my own path in time. We experience everything relative to our own movement. Generally our experience of the world is only a reflection of the experience of our body. The changing or fixed world is only a reflection of our changing or fixed bodies. The world is the screen, while the body is the projector, while we are what witnesses the light shining through.
Generally a lifetime is said to last for around 1008 moon cycles (84 years). And we could say there are 4 seasons between – 0-21, 21-42, 42-63, 63-84. From the body’s perspective, these time periods would be: spring, summer, fall, winter seasons. We are travelers in time, meeting other travelers in time. The system reminds me of a giant clockwork with 9 planets/moons forming its whirling hands. We seem to descend condense into the form, and then fade out of the form as we age.
This makes me wonder about the nature of the body itself. It feels like the body is only a product of the time path and circumstances it was forged in. We could be born again and again, and descend into other bodies with other time start points and paths. In those other births, we would once again experience a totally new world, because the world would now appear relative to those new bodies and their new time paths. It is as if we are experiencing the same general matrix from different paths in every birth.
‘What you are now’ is attracted to people who resemble your future self, Or to ones who are moving in the same direction heading to your future self. So even if right now you meet someone who is just like you, If their future attractor is different from your future attractor, And if they do not resemble your future self/form in any way, You both will part ways.
The meanings of words are not absolute or fixed. They are quite stretchable, and can range all the way from literal to the abstract. Words are more like signifiers or pointers. The meaning understood from a word depends upon the context/subject/frame/theme/topic and the vastness of scope.
You can point your finger towards a leaf in a tree, But if the moon is in the same line, you may also be pointing at the moon. Similarly, the range of the signified meaning is all the way from the immediate to its most far out abstract.
For instance, the word emptiness. In the ordinary practical context, it would point to a meaning of there being no physical objects in a given space. But in the metaphysical abstract context, it could mean emptiness of substance or essence (which is the truth of the entire manifest creation that appears to us). Imo there is no contradiction in these 2 meanings derived from the same word, Just like how your finger pointing to the moon could also be pointing at some other closer object like a tree leaf in the same line of sight.
The bell curve of humanity can be seen as 3 regions: Regressive —– Masses —– Progressive It can also be seen as the bell curve of evolution. What we generally refer to as society, Is the system that reflects the implicit and explicit collective agreement of mainly the masses. This can be loosely referred to as “Collective Consciousness”. The kingdom of society has all 3 elements: tamas, rajas, sattva. Tamas = Inertia (Decadence) Rajas = Activity (Dynamic maintenance) Sattva = Seeking the higher (To evolve, improve, and transform).
Will power (the experience of it) is when you are resisting. No resistance = No willpower. Your very existence as an individual is from the action of resistance. Cease to resist and you will cease to exist as an individual at all. That is where this saying probably comes from: You are when god is not, When god is you are not.
It is possible to relax out of one’s identity itself. For instance, unconsciously every night, Our very identity relaxes its inherent resistive action in deep sleep, Where our individual experience ceases, And this gives a great deal of rejuvenation.
