 Where is the Wisdom we have Lost in Knowledge


Seeing Reality & the Illusion From the Outer & Inner Vision

We open our eyes and we see all that is around us as reality as it is solid, we can use our five senses, to touch, feel, smell, see and hear, but there is another reality but most people call this the illusion, some people can see, hear feel, and smell it but although it can’t be touched there is a knowing it is there and it is real, this is the true reality which everything was created from, the one we live in is the projected illusion of that reality.

So let us take a look at the world from both perspectives which gives us an analogy on various ways of looking at things. Imagine in a spiritual school a teacher is answering questions from a pupil.

Lesson

Pupil I am a painter and I earn my living through painting pictures has this any value from a spiritual point of view (can apply to other work)

Teacher When you paint what do you think of?

Pupil I think only on what I am painting there is just me and the picture

Teacher Consciousness itself is the greatest painter of all because the entire world is its picture

Pupil Who painted the picture of the world?

Teacher The painter is in the picture

Pupil The picture is in the mind of the painter and the painter is in the picture, which is in the mind of the painter. Is this infinity of states and dimensions absurd, the moment we talk of the picture in the mind which itself is in the picture, we come to an endless succession of witnesses, the higher witness of consciousness witnessing the lower consciousness? it is like standing between two mirrors and wondering at the crowd

Teacher That is quite right you the self in your material world and the double that is your spiritual are mirrored between your two forms where names are numberless.

Pupil So how would you look at the world?

Teacher  I see a painter painting a picture, the picture I call the world the painter I call the creator or universal mind, I am neither, I do not create nor am I created I contain all as nothing contains me because I am the light and not the body/mind.

Pupil When I see a tree or a sunset the picture is perfect, but when I close my eyes the image in my mind is faint and not very clear. If it is my mind that projects the picture why do I need to open my eyes to see the beautiful sunset?

Teacher It is because your outer eyes are better than your inner eyes, your mind is turned outward, as you learn to watch your mental world; your spiritual self will find it more beautiful and colourful that what your body/mind can provide you with. Of course you will need some training as this does not come easy. You think that the picture must come from the painter who painted it, because it is the mind that always looks for origins and causes. Causality is in the mind only, memory gives the illusion of continuity and receptiveness creates the idea of causality, so when things repeatedly happen we tend to see a causal link between them, it creates a mental habit but a habit is not a necessity.

Pupil How can I see the world as the creator what does it mean to see the world as the universal mind

Teacher It is like entering a dark room, you see nothing, you may touch but you don’t see no colour no outlines nothing. Then the window opens and the room is flooded with light, colours begin to form and shapes come into being. The window is the giver of light but not the source of it, the sun is the source. 

Similary matter is like the dark room with consciousness being the window flooding matter with sensations and perceptions and the supreme is the sun the source of both matter and light. The window may be closed or open but the sun shines all the time, this makes all the difference to the room but none to the sun. Yet all this is secondary to the tiny spark of light which is the spirit, without the light of the spirit there is nothing.

All knowledge is about the I am, the self or identity there are false ideas about this I am and that I am because they all lead to bondage, but the knowledge of the light leads to freedom and happiness. Both inner and outer being is based on the same sense of being, one exists in the reality of material existence solidity and the other exists in its true form of light of ethereal substances.

So the only way to bridge these two existences is meditation which can greatly influence daily behaviour patterns, we can learn much from meditation if only we practice it a few times a week. It is not just the quality of information that we gleam from it, but more by the beauty of its discoveries within ourselves that needs to be appreciated. Once the practice of meditation has been sufficiently grasped it feels like we are moving away from our everyday selves and becoming more at one with the inner essence of our true being.

If we over come our fears and over come our  thoughts that we are just imagining most of them, it will become more concise and clear that what is within is also on the outside, it just needs to take the inner to the outer and manifest it in our daily lives. This in time becomes united as one and the soul/spirit becomes the integral of the self and vice versa.

Meditation is a mysterious process of inner growth and as soon as we have discovered through personal experiment that meditation can be an endless source of enrichment, we will then go on to attain higher forms of consciousness that is linked to the soul’s/spirit that is connected to the universal source its collective form and from that united ness we can draw on the energies that will enhance every aspect of our lives.

During meditation an inner calm transcends our reality to the higher realms of ethereal energy consciousness where dreams and reality are as one, this helps us transform our outer energies and bring to the surface the inner qualities that have been with us since time began. It is only through meditation that we can truly connect with the core the heart of the spirit and when this communication strengthens our mind begins to move forwards towards transparency and it is in this way that we begin to see with clarity the many visions and knowledge that is part of universal consciousness.

 This will eliminate fear and anxiety as you will have that inner knowledge which does not create so many fears and anxiety's within you. To unite and get closer to your consciousness means to get closer and understand the language of the inner self, this language is first and foremost with the love of our true selves and not just the body/mind with a label. With compassion, acceptance, empathy and respect of all things we can begin to heal all that is within us and from this point on we can begin to help others heal themselves by showing them the signposts so they may find their own inner light.

The great masters of ancient times who sought universal knowledge had wisdom beyond the human mind and allowed this higher knowledge to manifest in their lives, they used the mind as a tool for centring to the heart of their spirits light which gave them unknown and immense higher knowledge so they could teach others. There were some great seers in the years gone by, but they were just like everybody else they had a body and a mind, the difference was they attained their enlightenment and self realisation to a much higher conscious that of the universal mind or creator.

How We See the World and How the World See's Us.

A scientist Max Plank once said “as a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science to the study of matter, I can tell you as the result of my research about atoms this much, There is no matter as such. all matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to a vibration and holds the most minute solar system of the atom together, we must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This Mind is the Matrix of all Matter.

Mystics throughout the ages have always referred to this world as the domain of mind and matter but not the body/mind matter.

The Universal Source the Universal Consciousness is part of the Universal Mind which is a part of all the rest of creation whether it is in this world or any other dimensional reality, we are all just one small aspect of which creates a whole network of energy patterns which are created by the force of atoms that construct the building blocks for a solidity of matter whether this may be a human being or an ant.

The energies we can perceive or the ones of the inner mind that we can’t always perceive are just the surface energies like ripples on a still pond, but this pond has a multitude of unknown depth where lies many other energies and other dimensions. It is only the ripple we can see and not the great depth of the ocean, we may look at it like a light through a multi coloured pattern projection onto a white background where the light creates its own network of energies and its patterns, you can see many things through a beam of white light as it is filled with the many facets of colours which exists in creations of light. Remember we are not in the world the world is within us.

Words of Nisargadatta The world is the creation of your own consciousness, it is seen only in duality if there was no duality there would be no world. The greatest miracle is your being-ness because of which this immense world is created in an instant. Go to the source from where it has arisen.

The world will never provide an answer to your questions, find out for yourself what it is that is changeless, the world exists within oneself. Who is prior, the world or the one who sees the world? Your waking state and the world are not different.

 The Holographic Image of Our World through the Hologram of the Universe

A hologram is a three dimensional photograph made with an aid of a laser, to make a hologram the object to be photographed is first bathed in the light of the laser, then a second laser is bounced off the reflected light of the first and the resulting interference pattern ( the area where the two beams of light comingle) is captured on film. When the film is developed it looks like a meaningless swirl of light and dark lines, but as soon as the developed film is illuminated by another laser beam a three dimensional image of the original object appears. The three dimensionality of such images is not the only remarkable characterists of holograms, if a hologram of a rose is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser each half will still be found to contain the entire image of the rose. Even if the halves are divided again, each snippet of film will always be found to contain a smaller but intact version of the original image. Unlike normal photographs every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole. The whole in every part of nature of a hologram provides us with an entirely new way of understanding organisation and order.

A hologram teaches us that some things in the universe may not lend themselves to this approach; if we try to take something constructed holographically we will not get the pieces of which it is made of, we will only get smaller wholes. The scientist Bohm suggests another way of understanding holograms he believes the reason that subatomic particles are able to remain in contact with one another regardless of the distance separating them is not because they are sending some sort of mysterious signals back and forth, but because their separateness is an illusion, he says that at some deeper level of reality such particles are not individual entities, but are actually extensions of the same fundamental something.

Put quite simply, it ceases to exist and as the religions of the East have long upheld the material world is Maya, an illusion and although we may think we are physical beings moving through a physical world, this too is an illusion he says that at some deeper level of reality such particles are not individual entities but are actually extensions of the same fundamental something. David Bohm implies that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram, he also says there is no way of knowing what else may lie hidden in the super hologram of the universes. Put quite simply it ceases to exist and as the religions of the east have long upheld the material world is Maya an illusion and although we may think we are physical beings moving through a physical world, this too is an illusion.

The holographic paradigm also has implications for hard sciences like biology Keith Floyd who has pointed out that if concreteness of realty is but a holographic illusion, it would no longer be true to say that the brain produces consciousness, rather it is consciousness that creates the appearance of the brain as well as the body and everything else around us we interpret as physical.

Such a turnabout in the way we view biological structures has caused researches to point out that medicine and our understanding of the healing process could also be transformed by the holographic paradigm. If the apparent physical structure of the body is but a holographic projection of consciousness, it then becomes clear that each of us is much more responsible for our health than current medical wisdom allows. We can now view miraculous remissions of disease may actually be due to changes in Consciousness which in turn effect changes in the hologram of the body. In a holgraphic universe there are no limits to the extent to which we can alter the fabric of reality, but one must keep in mind that not even scientists or anyone else can do this unless they have altered and highered their own consciousness from the reality of their lower awareness to the higher awareness of the spirit. What most people perceive as reality is but a canvas waiting for a picture to be drawn on it, but not by the individual but through the higher consciousness of that individual as it was told from teacher to pupil.

This is the difference between the lower consciousness of the self and the higher consciousness of the spirit, the spirit would draw what is needed in its journey to evolve, the self would draw what it desired to receive in its material existence. So to allow the higher consciousness to project through you, one must attain this level of higher energy so the both can unite. Consciousness of the universe can alter and change many things from health to breaking habits but the individual must first reach out to that higher state of awareness in their own energy formation before any changes can be made, man alone cannot make these changes just through the mind itself, only through the higher mind of the spirits consciousness can any changes take place.
