This is a compilation of notes I took and theories I have written down over the past year or so. I question the nature of my reality constantly...So here is my best explanation of what reality is and why we as humans perceive it.
PART ONE: A Scientific Theory
Stated in the traditional hypothesis format of if, then, because.
WHAT IF: The Universe manifested consciousness as a way to perceive itself and truly exist and that’s what God is?
THEN: Every life and happening is a sacred thread weaving reality, God, and all that is (and is not) in question.
BECAUSE: Time is an illusion of the human mind, Therefore, all that is happening, has happened or will happen is one infinite instance. To be human is to be an infinite energy manifested into finite form with a sense of sentience. Immortal and yet able to experience death. The concept of finite life is a necessary perception until contact with God (the higher self, the collective, the cosmos, etc.) is made.
PART TWO: Expansion
A Brief History of the Unfolding Universal Awakening
The development of life first provided matter (energy) with consciousness. From here, self awareness became a part of the living organism. The Universe ( all matter and reality in question) manifested sentience...a step in evolution that is just the beginning of the history of the organic organism.
Riddle me this; Can reality exist if there is no one there to perceive it? The answer is no because reality is perception itself. As the chicken and the egg, reality spawn perception. Consciousness itself had to evolve- dirt, trees and the Earth have sentience and life but are not aware of their own existence. Consider this a sleeping consciousness. Animals are self aware to an extent but are rooted in their Earthly survival instincts. They lack the ability to perceive reality outside of their own psyche. Human consciousness is the link to the next step in Universal enlightenment. As homosapiens, we have the ability to not only understand and analyze our own perceptions but to understand the perceptions of others.
The esoteric feeling that connects us all as a species is the deep rooted feeling that we are part of something bigger, greater, divine. This sensation is the whisper of the Universe remembering the true self. As the Universe (a super organism) and homosapiens (organisms) evolve, we do so at the same rate. For the experiences of the "individual" are the experiences of the whole. Each and every life, perception and point of view is so vital because each is a thread being perfectly woven into a divine reality. As we learn and grow, the connection to the higher self is strengthened.
Likewise, as the understanding of homosapien's connection to the collective becomes more apparent...we as a species move towards the next step in evolution.
A human who practices meditation, an open mind, pursues knowledge and has the Universal understanding of selflessness and oneness with the cosmos becomes homo-universalous. No longer rooted in only the Earth but with all that is. Homo-universalous is a higher vibrational being because solid objects (Earth) are at a lower frequency than non solid objects (the astral realm, thoughts, the soul).
As the vibration of the collective human consciousness rises, so does the vibration of all matter and reality in question. As the sense of self becomes less rooted in the Earthly body and more connected to the divine collective, the physical self becomes more subtle...the knowledge sinks in "I am nothing and simultaneously I am everything." The sense of self shifts from the solid body to the higher (vibrational) self. From this perspective, the joy, suffering, life and perception of every living thing becomes a part of you.
From the Earthly body it is hard to see the true self clearly. Meditation helps. Trust of this cosmic knowledge is essential. Opening the third eye is to realize I am he as he is she as we are one. The great evolution will take place when the energy of the collective rises highly enough to transcend as one. That is why it is so important to act on our instinct to love, expand our ability for empathy and help every part of the whole to see their divine connection to all that is.
Pain and suffering are Earthly tools placed as necessary calls to action to vibrate higher. The higher self is beginning to understand its immensity and commonly feels trapped in physical form. The purpose of life is to love the collective as we do ourselves, to come together to heal, learn, grow, evolve and connect to the whole.
The realization of the divine is not a seed planted, rather a cloud forming and the intuition of rain.
Energy vibrating in the third (Earthly) dimension will re-manifest or reincarnate into the world and experience reality again (and again) until the intended lesson is learned and the vibrational energy can rise. That is why it is so important to help each other understand. The destiny of the individual, the collective and the cosmos are intertwined for they (we) are one. The connection to a higher power that we all feel is more than a bond, it is the unconscious truth of our inception and demise as a species. We are becoming God.
PART THREE: Conclusions
Consciousness : self :: perception : reality
As human beings, we define our sense of self through the vessel in which we experience reality. However our consciousness is not bound to our third dimensional earthly body. The true self travels in the astral realm. In our dreams, we break the barriers of linear time and mortal life. The astral self travels in the next dimensions and in the higher vibrational planes of existence.
If you are not the person you once were, nor are you yet the person you are becoming…
Did you exist?
Do you exist?
Will you exist?
Who’s to say you’re any more real than a fictional character once believed in by a child.
Who’s to say that you’re any more you than anybody else is for that matter?
We are here to learn and grow. By now I think it’s evident that we are in this together.
HOW TO FIND YOUR TRUE SELF:
Relinquish your finite identity and consider your “self” in relation to all that exists within and beyond infinite space and time. For beyond infinity there are two things; that which the human consciousness can not fully grasp…and the divine. Beyond the compounds of the individual human mind is that which we have not considered fully and yet have always known…Just as much as we are part of the Universe, it is a part of us. Reality is perception and we are here to perceive. To be human is to act as reality and the Universe in question.
perception : reality:: knowledge : evolution
CONSCIOUSNESS is spawned in the form of the
SELF which is a finite manifestation of the Universe. Our
PERCEPTION is vital to the understanding of
REALITY. Each unique experience (lifetime) provides
KNOWLEDGE. As we learn and grow together and as individuals, Universal
EVOLUTION progresses and the understanding of divine self awareness unfolds.
Reality in question is essentially the divine dream of the Universe from which we wake up and realize ;
“All of it was me and was not me.” Only with this dualistic understanding can lucidity be achieved.
What it means to simultaneously be the self and not the self.
To be both one and the collective.
To be everything and nothing at once.
Through this understanding- reality created a sense of self.
It is I, you and we. For we are all that is and all that will be…looking into a very tiny mirror and mistaking it for ourselves. No, no…this is merely a reflection.
