This Touch

This touch, with intent . . .

“But right view also has a more immediate meaning, which is more literal (phenomenological rather than analogical). Here it refers to actually changing the way you see things.”

Holecek, Andrew. Dreams of Light . Sounds True. Kindle Edition.

Sometimes, its spontaneous, or moves through the interactive mode. It may be self-directed; but often, its the actions of a more intrinsic self, deeper level, smarter, with unique directions . . . not like I seen these before, or was trying to “create” a symbolism.

Emergent realities . . . one’s self, situation, redrawn within the perspective of this greater realm . . . extensions, incursions . . . one’s orientation altered through Intent.


So, that sense of a little self, separate, in the face of a larger overwhelming irrational mind, or separate from Heaven and in Hell, has been gone beyond. I know of “intent:” I’m much more solid than you think.

Freud spoke of two minds, and a symbol in between for we were afraid. I spoke of an abstraction, construct, a small meaning within a greater meaning, a way to evolve.

“ . . . he had deciphered the designs graven on the silver key. A gate had been unlocked–not, indeed, the Ultimate Gate, but one leading from Earth and time to that extension of Earth which is outside time, and from which in turn the Ultimate Gate leads fearsomely and perilously to the last Void which is outside all earths, all universes, and all matter.”

H. P. Lovecraft. Through the Gates of the Silver Key by H. P. Lovecraft (Halcyon Classics) . Halcyon Press Ltd.. Kindle Edition.

“Meaning-seeking is regarded by Frankl as both a universal primary human motivation and a unique human capacity to make sense of the world and create values/belief systems. To search for meaning is to seek self-transcendence, which means to step out of ourselves and serve something or someone bigger than oneself. “

Meaning Therapy: Assessments and Interventions, Dr. Paul Wong

Those pinpricks of light, not just a light, but an entrance into another space. One green, then a new mood and space. One blue, exquisitely precise new realm. There are these potentials now . . .


Another space, like a lighted underground lake. Entered a house with lights shining through all the windows. Another good space and feelings, when some dark being was grumbling next to me: I said, “Ok, I know, I need to get out of bed.” That made him be quiet!


This was one of those interactive dreams in which there was a deeper level of Self engaged in the activities: it was a further examination of that darker type. Like expert fishermen hauling in the net, we lifted this up this darker bag like container . . . as it was torn apart, a humanoid was released, alarmed, moist and darkish, though its face reminded me of a seal. I was at my higher level, since we seemed to now what we were doing, with this associate who was more of a teacher, guide.

There was the thought: “We have to take a closer look at your history” An image of a rectangular tunnel appeared, moving ahead, with a quick drop downward. There were these linear rectangular lights, on the median, in the front and the right. An image of a lighted boys face appeared, as he tore his way out of one of those bags. Then there was the presentation of a circular, lighted gold object, with sharp extensions pointing out on the left and bottom. Both halves . . . complete?

There was this spirit bumping into me, as Lee would point out, saying: “This is what I want!”


I started working on that “fuzzy” layer. It was difficult for me to approach this, wondering what I should do. It some ways, it seems close, like my own energetic fields: in other ways, it seems distant, as if I could focus upon its elements.

If I relaxed, like a meditation, eventually what it appeared like and felt like changed. It may seem like I’m in a certain more open space instead, not just a layer, with a different color, clearer, etc. This could happen in a variety of ways. Change is more possible for me these days.

There was the comment: “You always seemed so indecisive.” With that there was appearance of dirty yellow, faint, energy presence. Eventually, it was presented, as if something grabbed that field, as if it was a gigantic, solid pizza, or something.


There was a man in blue, like a ski-jacket, sneaking in from the distance. A part of me? For eventually, I became this other person, and was being more “manly,” if you know what I mean.

I was doing the relaxation before sleep, and eventually, I found myself in another state again, cleared up, different energy and color; but it was also a different aspect of me (?), like another person again . . . more like the younger one, as if I was transferred into being him, as I lied there.


Sitting

Sitting . . .

One’s Life World within the Greater World . . .

Flexibility, change of contexts . . .

That Special World . . . enhancements to our limited perspectives, meanings . . .

“Mingyur Rinpoche gives us a preview:

Perhaps this might be like waking up in dreams that happen every night in my form-body. Last night I had a wonderful dream. I dreamed that my form-body dissolved and only the purified mind went forth. . . . And now my illusory dream has again taken on the appearance of solid form. But I do not feel dense. Nothing around me looks solid. This entire room feels afloat on an iridescent pier; forms arise and fall within rippling movements of radiance. Space and radiance are not separate from form. This is another beautiful dream. . . . I noticed that the shapes passing through, while beginning to resemble familiar forms, still seemed to be gliding on water. They appeared more transparent than solid, made more of light than of flesh and blood, more like a dream than a daytime vision. But I could not tell if I was dreaming from within my everyday waking life, or from my illusory body. And either way, I had no desire to wake up from this dream. I am enjoying this dream.”

Holecek, Andrew. Dreams of Light (pp. 62-63). Sounds True. Kindle Edition.

From the past, it could be like John C. Lilly’s distinctions, with body, external reality, inner world, and Self, within the human biocomputer as reference points; or like H. P. Lovecraft’s selectivity :

“As the Shapes produced by the cutting of a cone seem to vary with the angles of cutting–being circle, ellipse, parabola or hyperbola according to that angle, yet without any change in the cone itself–so do the local aspects of an unchanged–and endless reality seem to change with the cosmic angle of regarding. To this variety of angles of consciousness the feeble beings of the inner worlds are slaves, since with rare exceptions they can not learn to control them. Only a few students of forbidden things have gained inklings of this control, and have thereby conquered time and change. But the entities outside the Gates command all angles, and view the myriad parts of the cosmos in terms of fragmentary change-involving perspective, or of the changeless totality beyond perspective, in accordance with their will.”

H. P. Lovecraft. Through the Gates of the Silver Key by H. P. Lovecraft (Halcyon Classics) . Halcyon Press Ltd.. Kindle Edition.

And as we sit there, within our larger reality, the “unconscious,” the “Ground,” the “Gestalt.” These orientations, with intent and figure/ground, could be “redrawn” into another more sophisticated take: I noted that.


It was like I was aloft in the sky, with the rain falling down around me, looking down to a wondrous mountain scene, with a rugged flowing stream, amongst all the foliage. The comforting goddess presence commenting that there was so much more possible.

Suddenly “I changed” . . . I was a fresh evergreen forest stretching outward over the rolling land.


Rather than that typical sense of just sitting, there was that sense of being in open rooms, as if I was moving along in them, and with a coffee mug in my hand.

It was like I encountered this entity in this meditative state, and we were comparing states and versions of oneself here, going back and forth between possible manifest states. Now this is when I should of got out the pen and wrote down what was being communicated, for there was a lot of finesse and sophistication. This faded away fairly quickly.

When I “woke up” later, it was like I had popped out of that typical fuzzy state, as well, into something tighter, more in focus, stronger. It was an active state. This was the biggest change here forever!


The Force Awakens

In one of those wake up go back to sleep sessions, I found myself next to this massive dark castle wall, at night, mountainous, cloudy. There was a soft windowed light on up there, rectangular. As I moved to investigate, I saw a path leading up; but then there was the light thing crossing it, like a rectangular yellow object, like a TV screen. Came to meet me.

During an ordinary session, I put up the goal to myself to connect with the more intrinsic, worthwhile. I found myself flying, doing a swoop along a coastline. Did a quick turn and then a barrel roll, and orientated myself towards a monk meditating on a high peak, surrounded by the ocean. As I got closer, suddenly he lighted up, shining all around. Energies. As I thought about that, I was able to face him, see how he looked, and have him discern my considerations.


Yes, that was “Me” from that front page and blog . . . my doings and writing. It also synced with “something else.” Its not necessarily just books, hey?


So . . . The “Ways of Intent” . . . An “Interactive Field of Meaning and Knowledge” . . . “Identity, Selfhood.”

Social/personal self . . . Intrinsic Self . . .

This allowed me to avoid getting into further battles below this level, and I could move along, not getting concerned about the various internalization/externalization issues.

Likewise, before this, I tried not to apply my energies in random ways, in ways that may have been in the wrong directions . . . I was thinking: “Who are those who are interested in this?”

You could say I was following the razor’s edge here, a way to do my things, and consider what other’s are trying to do, as well.

Once I hit that further sense of meaning, development, I was on my way! One’s Life World within the Greater World . . .

It was like I was holding a golden blade, with many etchings and glyphs upon it: I was comparing it to the ancient writings on some old stone tablet. Then there was an extension into a further state, instead of the blade, a smooth cylindrical object with a round end, moving along into a clearer golden space. Lingam?

It was like I was aloft in the sky, with the rain falling down around me, looking down to a wondrous mountain scene, with a rugged flowing stream, amongst all the foliage. The comforting goddess presence commenting that there was so much more possible.


“ . . . he had deciphered the designs graven on the silver key. A gate had been unlocked–not, indeed, the Ultimate Gate, but one leading from Earth and time to that extension of Earth which is outside time, and from which in turn the Ultimate Gate leads fearsomely and perilously to the last Void which is outside all earths, all universes, and all matter.”

H. P. Lovecraft. Through the Gates of the Silver Key by H. P. Lovecraft (Halcyon Classics) . Halcyon Press Ltd.. Kindle Edition.

Freud spoke of two minds, and a symbol in between for we were afraid. I spoke of an abstraction, construct, a small meaning within a greater meaning, a way to evolve.


Moving out of that mirror, like one might get in that internalization/externalization dialectic, into that multifaceted reality . . .

One’s small meaning is in interaction with a greater reality: its why we dream. Self-hood is moved along in newer activations.

Like in a jigsaw puzzle, one becomes a part of the “bigger picture” . . . One’s Life World within the Greater World . . .

“A Self entwined within the universe within an interactive field of meaning and knowledge.”

(Ah, that sounds better; it moves one on from the typical, into the greater, multifaceted. I needed a more goal orientated, developmental perspective, dealing with it all type of orientation. This is psychology . . . one can do one’s philosophy, spirit quest now. So, besides the mirror, I got that sense of a greater reality now, with extended meaning and purpose. I did have that original orientation of taking off one’s goggles and seeing the Truer Reality, Existence; but I see there are further steps.)


Me

Intuitively, when I was younger, I knew there was something “more” . . . to be a good kid, not enough.

The “more” is the real issue . . . and its not just the nasty. I had to find some real paths here, not just play the game . . . all you lost souls!

That sounds fairly safe, as Maslow explained, we are in a position of growth, development, Self-actualization. The issues begin at the more cognitive levels, how we interpret things, define ourselves and world . . . like the “ego idea,” which I first heard of in Psychology 1000.


My path began with Colin Wilson, where I got my “core” foundations . . . “intentionality.”


Theory is one thing, and what people say is another; but this is based on actual functioning and experiences . . . “core functioning.” Focused intent brings up an increased sense of reality! Its a feeling of strength, knowing one is being one’s true self, in the place of being grounded. There’s ways of evolution, growth, positivity possible here. There’s reasons for it, and there is much to learn. I had experiences that kept me going.

I started with the idea of we are a part of the whole; then I tried to be more functional. I realized we are actually interconnected, with intentionality, to the world, reality. Then we are in an intermediate zone here, within a greater reality, in which we can do our work . . . not just either Evil or Holy. Middle Earth. There are a lot of systems out there, I discovered, that have this.

So, you could see I’ve changed my overall generic context. Rather than the little misfit, with the negative around . . . its “all crazy,” to the Life World within the Greater World. The Age of Separateness, as the aboriginals put it, has put us there . . . like in Freudianism, Christianity, as far as the Western World goes. Pretty nasty. (Of course, when I’m speaking of Christianity, I’m thinking of the Roman interpretation. They weren’t Gnostic like the original ones. I read what they said . . . “How could we be “here” and “there:” its impossible!” They truly felt they were separate. Not that high up the spiritual ladder as they claim. I speak of “mutuality” . . . “a mutual arising of Self and Existence.” Physics has “Fields” these days.)

This orientation, aligning oneself to it, one’s life starts making changes. Its like opening up to the multifaceted nature of oneself and the universe. Its not just the shadow; but it means becoming activated in a different way . . . “the other” . . . the more intrinsic nature of oneself, in action.

Its that “Special World,” interconnected, one with the Universe . . . not just with Earth down here with Heaven above. We could move from the Freudian, Christian dualities, into something Joseph Campbell would speak about . . . the Hero’s Journey! Its like we all came down to Earth, though, then had to reconnect with the whole. Christ, representative of our Hero’s Quest.


Therefore, who we are, or think we are, isn’t just an idea, or that description: there’s that “other part,” the “hidden one” as some would say, our intrinsic nature that is one with the universe and is in touch with all those multifaceted realities. Its one’s self that can kick in and take one beyond those apparent views. The “Master.”


With this multifaceted possibility, I began being careful about getting too involved with something like the internalization/externalization issue. I thought I had more potentialities than this battle. So, if you saw a difference in me, I was in a state of “consideration.” There are various ways to deal with and orientate oneself within all these issues, evolving perspectives. I am following the various “Intent Pathways” this time.

Eventually, I realized, as far as this “construct” goes . . . I was understanding the “form” aspect, and one’s independence here . . . but that it was also integrated and interactive within the ground. Once I realized that, I was then able to make that big leap, and things were happening. “One’s Meaning” is imbedded within larger interactive meanings . . . I got the Life World within the Greater World from this. I realized its why we dream, being within a larger potential, evolutionary position, impinging upon us. We are that ultimately. A personal change of context occurred: I was able to escape from that generic thing people were doing, go past that colloquial psychoanalysis, even the typical ideas of the unconscious which was holding me back, and get into motion with truly intrinsic meanings, ways!

Then recently, always finding something, along comes Ouspensky and Gurdjieff . . . those talks about the four bodies, three forces. Lee would be orientated within the feeling/desire one, working on her emotions, and Faith. Of course, I would be in that fourth one, with I, consciousness, and Will. This one does it all in one “movement,” a body, feeling, and understanding all there. It all seemed so synchronous, with his talk of external influences from one side, to gathering it all up from the other way . . . the Fourth Way. His talk of the various interrelations and issues was moving me along here: where I was was where he started elucidating more! But that was 100 years ago!

Seeing the future? Reincarnation?


Our Life World within the Greater World . . .

Like moving from the first or second person, to the third . . . the third gate (someone knew) . . . in which one could enter someone else’s dream, or be somewhere else . . . the arena of old sorcerer’s powers and assemblage points?

For me, I took steps forward here when I realized we are “Selves entwined within the universe in an interactive field of meaning and knowledge” It freed me up, got me within this larger context of meaning, and made sense of what is going on. This construct, personal meaning, is imbedded within something larger . . . why we dream, move along . . . like the Mandala, or the Gestalt.

But, there’s also a newer foundation here . . . The Fourth Way . . . dealing with the “objective” . . . “knowledge and being” . . . (Whoa!, hey?) The new sorcerers?

“In trying to understand this it must be remembered at the same time that people cannot observe phenomena as manifestations of three forces because we cannot observe the objective world in our subjective states of consciousness. And in the subjectively observed phenomenal world we see in phenomena only the manifestation of one or two forces. If we could see the manifestation of three forces in every action, we should then see the world as it is (things in themselves).”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“The third force is a property of the real world. The subjective or phenomenal world of our observation is only relatively real, at any rate it is not complete.”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.


“Not one of you has noticed the most important thing that I have pointed out to you,” he said. “That is to say, not one of you has noticed that you do not remember yourselves.” (He gave particular emphasis to these words.) “You do not feel yourselves; you are not conscious of yourselves. With you, ‘it observes’ just as ‘it speaks’, ‘it thinks’, ‘it laughs’. You do not feel: I observe, I notice, I see. Everything still ‘is noticed’, ‘is seen’. … In order really to observe oneself one must first of all remember oneself”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

In that internalization/externalization issue, I was asking; “What about me?” So, one can consider one’s “intrinsic nature,” as I put it, or Gurdjieff’s objective stance, as he explained it.


The Dream Body

There’s daily down to Earth happening things contributing to our experience . . .

But we are also abstracted beings . . . there’s themes, understandings, evolving directions, etc.

And we are “networked” . . . together and within even greater realities . . . many sources entering the picture.

Moving from the concrete levels into the multifaceted.

That “Special World,” interconnected, one with the Universe . . . not just with Earth down here with Heaven above. We could move from the Freudian, Christian dualities, into something Joseph Campbell would speak about . . . the Hero’s journey!

The Life World within the Greater World.


“In the terminology of certain Eastern teachings the first body is the ‘carriage’ (body), the second body is the ‘horse’ (feelings, desires), the third the ‘driver’ (mind), and the fourth the ‘master’ (I, consciousness, will). “Such comparisons and parallels may be found in most systems and teachings which recognize something more in man than the physical body. But almost all these teachings, while repeating in a more or less familiar form the definitions and divisions of the ancient teaching, have forgotten or omitted its most important feature, which is: that man is not born with the finer bodies, and that they can only be artificially cultivated in him provided favorable conditions both internal and external are present.”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

When we become socialized, learn from those who know, developmental?

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

And the esoteric, not Sunday school . . .

“The first is the physical body, in Christian terminology the ‘carnal’ body; the second, in Christian terminology, is the ‘natural’ body; the third is the ‘spiritual’ body; and the fourth, in the terminology of esoteric Christianity, is the ‘divine’ body.”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“In the second case, that is, in relation to the functions of the four bodies, the automatism of the physical body depends upon the influences of the other bodies. Instead of the discordant and often contradictory activity of different desires, there is one single I, whole, indivisible, and permanent; there is individuality, dominating the physical body and its desires and able to overcome both its reluctance and its resistance. Instead of the mechanical process of thinking there is consciousness. And there is will, that is, a power, not merely composed of various often contradictory desires belonging to different “I’s”, but issuing from consciousness and governed by individuality or a single and permanent I. Only such a will can be called “free”, for it is independent of accident and cannot be altered or directed from without.”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Ahh, I was moving along here: I was speaking of externalization, and those more enhanced intrinsic moves. Smarter, lol. Intelligence . . . meaning? Now that’s science, theory and observation.

That fourth body, with I, consciousness, Will, is like my intent and figure/ground. G’s talks with Ouspensky are proving quite helpful, since it fits into my current stage, providing insights into the further ways and relationships here, moving it further along.


The dream body . . .

The hand . . . it was like I was following my outstretched hand, like it was adding direction, and energy, into another room. Something like Tai Chi, or something Lee would do.

There was an episode in which there was a blossoming giant dark hand emerging, that was holding between its thumb and finger, something that looked like one of those Tic Tak vehicles.

Sleeping on my side, with the weight off my innards . . . began dreaming of moving in such a way, with my extended arms leading the way, with a pleasant feeling . . . must need that Tai Chi.

In a related type of vision, I saw this reddish octopus, with many suckered arms, being out in the open, agitated. I entered the scene, offering help, by moving it into a light blue translucent oblong covering, with some speckled lights in a row, which it could float around in. “Here let me help you, do you like this?”

 

And identity . . .

Doing what some women think is up, or what I could do (or why there was a past change) . . . but I came back examining within an even larger perspective, even watching one of them strong good ones doing work. This larger identity . . . I gave it the nomenclature . . .”The Mysterion,” for it was beyond all that, mysterious, and able to take it all in!


 

Synchronicities

  • Image synchronicities . . .

I had this dream vision of a streaming flowing ribbon. Then there was another of light being reflected in the water. The later was an opening scene in the You Tube series, Deepsea Oddities, and both scenes which I later viewed on TV. There was one creature presented, with a long and flowing cloak, the “Blanket Octopus.”

  • The book . . . “In Search of the Miraculous”

That G metaphor . . . got me thinking. You could see Moore trying to get this in here, and where the idea of the metaphor came from.

Two levels of people and art . . . one subjective, another that is objective, like “mathematics,” precise directions and reactions. (He’s comparing it to science?)

Like the weaving analogy . . . one fiber grounded in the high, the other in a life texture

Like the apparent abstract creation, and then the focused . . . objective, but not in the rational sense.


Then there was the talk of G saying we need good foundations for the”crystallization” of something further, a newer self . . .

Dreamed that first of course. So, who’s doing the dreaming, guidance? It was like that uptown road renovation thing, where there was the discovery of the old tracks, and then the perfectly redone finishing.


G spoke of a positive/negative situation for adding some motivation for change . . . ?

There also was the talk of a past life in a dream scene . . . makes me wonder why I was put in with certain people, ways . . . why I had a conflicted behavior, for I also knew of something better.


The Construct

This construct, abstraction, one’s meaning . . .

This situation of ours, associated imagery . . . being abstract, there are those expected intuitions, ideas, symbols.

But it is also a form, the Life World within the Greater World . . . activations . . . 

How the poem is written, interpreted, the jig saw puzzle is made, the experience engendered.


Changing realities, paradigms . . . complex situations.

Mysteries . . . chaos magic . . . 


Ego . . . that aspect of oneself that resists change, hence the Shadow. When one realizes that we are a part of the whole, there is the chance for extensive evolutions, interconnections.

There are changing functions and orientations here, that allow one to experience oneself what this means . . . like from subject/object, to figure/ground. Intent.

There is that intrinsic aspect of self that is in touch with all these core moves . . . one has to be true to oneself! There is a truer reality beyond these appearances, the apparent.

“But the question remains: what leads us onwards and upwards? Goethe says it’s the ‘eternal feminine’; for Wilson and Husserl it is the transcendental ego; for Madame Blavatsky it is the interplay between noumena and phenomena; and in Watson’s Miracle Visitors it is the ‘inaccessibilities’ that tease out our greatest mental leaps. In a sense they’re all aspects of each other, bleeding over seamlessly into one another’s territory; eternally presenting a sort of meta-logical game that challenges our presumptions every time we become too complacent.”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 79). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.


“There is the sense that there are meanings that animate the deepest substratum of existence, and that, in some odd way, these meanings are the structural blueprints not only of matter and the physical and natural world, but also the structuring forces that underlie experience as well as existence in its interior and mental form. The mind, then, is just as much a part of this reality of objective meanings as it is capable of unveiling or revealing them. In fact, it is essentially revealing deeper layers of its connection to reality itself, and, as a result, there is the sense of unity consciousness and an overcoming of the Sartrean kind of existential alienation. More than this is the direct access to information or unusual powers . . . “

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 146). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“ . . . for particularly in his later work, Jung ‘began to move toward a conception of archetypes as autonomous patterns of meaning that appear to structure and inhere in both psyche and matter’ and thereby ‘dissolving the modern subject-object dichotomy’ (2001: 425).”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 136). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.


This journey may be short, within the internal/external context only, like the snake biting its own tail, the Ouroboros. The assemblage point. One doesn’t change much. Like leaving one’s home, then returning. They knew that.

Or, one can move into that greater context, that “intrinsic self entwined within that interactive field of meaning and knowledge.” All changes here, including oneself, evolves. Extended meanings. Infinity.

I needed a way to better approach those extended contexts.


There can be unique, sophisticated presentations here, from that Greater reality, with enhanced meanings, that can circumvent these lowly views of ours . . . an abstraction can be much more, as suspected, and it can be lived!

I was doing fine here.

With the extended context of the life world within the greater world, I noticed that situations or imagery that would give the ego problems, one can sneak around and through them, circumambulate, not restricted to the ordinary perspective.

I saw myself standing there, hand up to face, considering the issue. Self-referential . . . abstract and perceptual.


 

Interactive Meanings

So, we move from the “neutral state,” “what is is,” “the apparent,” and we become more active. We realize the “internalization” is there; but it is more than just an idea; its a form. Rationality only takes it so far. We are “selves entwined within an interactive field of meaning and knowledge.”

Form and intent . . . “where one is at.”

The “Fourth Way” . . .


The functionality here moves along in different ways.

It was when I was able to move on from that internalization/externalization dialectic, which was holding me back within some weird persona, low level of interpretation, into that interactive sense of a field of meaning and knowledge, that I made the big leap. Extensive. Real meanings, true identity . . . Wow!

This larger, potential, multifaceted context . . . this larger consciousness, per se . . .


 

The science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick has also mentioned that when he saw the world with both hemispheres in synchrony he experienced an entirely different world. A world, we could say, experienced synchronistically rather than causally. To understand this phenomenon to its greatest extent, we need to begin to tilt our ontological axis so that the two worlds––perceptual and conceptual––converge.

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 107). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.


 

Extensions and excursions . . . multiple preliminaries of the next . . .

Spontaneous foci, of our intrinsic nature, of phenomena, or of a new self and space . . . doing something smarter . . .

Camouflaged like an octopus at the bottom of the sea . . . or encountering full fledged energetic presences . . .


 

One sees for oneself the evolution between where one is at within the Life Worlds and the Greater Worlds, like a mechanic figuring out how to get things going.


 

So, initially, I discerned I could get beyond one’s filters, and focus the world. This was an enhancement: “A mutual arising of Self and Existence,” energies interconnecting. This was pretty much a down to earth thing; but lately, I seen that this enhancement can occur within our multifaceted nature. I had this image of a gnarled frame of iron, with mountains behind . . . “narrow chinks of our cavern?” . . . but when I applied the focus, I saw an image of a young boy.

“Within an Iron thing” . . . Vusamazulu Credo Mutwa . . .

If one was lucky enough, the right orientation and the right beings, one might be put into a golden container, and fly around the universe. (Or around them, observing.)

This intrinsic level is also smarter: I had an image of this monstrous metal robot. As I examined it, I noted that there was a round indentation on the top of its head in which a circular attachment could be inserted. It said the head was the important thing. Next, I gathered up all these attachments in my arms, thinking I had to get rid of them, and threw them down a cliff to the underlying ground. I jumped down to that area, feeling the earth at my feet, and there was an upbeat a lighted energy. There was a move from mechanical functioning to living energy.

Cylindrical head attachment thing . . . Star Trek Beyond . . .


 

Therefore, who we are, or think we are, isn’t just an idea, or that description: there’s that “other part,” the hidden one as some would say, our intrinsic nature that is one with the universe and is in touch with all those multifaceted realities. Its one’s self that can kick in and take one beyond those apparent views. The “Master.”

Sometimes one can be stuck though, or agitated by the descriptions, ego: but the true self can enter the picture and restore the way, one’s better view. Ultimately, one is still in motion, flexible. I understand that now.

There are a variety of self-referential perspectives possible here, of oneself. It was like I was holding my phone, and got this image of some dark presence giving me that sneaky recognition; then I slipped into this light room with this female presence that was semi-formless. Dealing with a situation with an alternative perspective, more sophisticated, getting around the bend.

It was like I saw an explosion, with deaths, thirteen, and an alien type observing . . . that movie? Strangely enough, I may have needed to see this, to learn and understand the issue, to discern the difference.

I was considering this ego issue, then had an image of this big column, in which there was an open door, wherein this person got shut inside.


 

Activations

This orientation, aligning oneself to it, one’s life starts making changes.

Its like opening up to the multifaceted nature of oneself and the universe. Its not just the shadow; but it means becoming activated in a different way, “the other” . . . the more intrinsic nature of oneself, in action.


Accordingly, I was able to see that past location where I lived come up in an enhanced perspective . . . how to make the tough past look better. Likewise, when I saw that sleeping youthful figure, after the dirty chair seat. One can reverse the difficult, with these enhanced orientations.

A recapitulation? I did start back then there.


This evolutionary metaphor . . . like Joseph Campbell’s hero’s quest in which one leaves the ordinary world and enters and moves through the special world, with its unique elements, directions, guidance.

“ . . . instead of being adrift in a meaningless universe, we instead inhabit a reality with an emergent evolutionary context — a part of which our very consciousness is a significant contribution to its implicit and explicit developments.”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 33). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

This is like the context of living in the Life World within the Greater Worlds. It sounds like a metaphor; but it is also literal when one considers it as intent and the figure/ground. These presentations are literal, metaphorical, and consciously activated, which is the key. Interactive meaning . . . its not just the down to earth, colloquial, generic symbols and interpretations.

There is this larger multifaceted meaning, not just a singular distinct notion, like the multiple layers of a poem, or the many parts of the jigsaw puzzle contributing to the greater picture . . . so, why its metaphorical. A mandala. Could be the shape of atoms and matter with the meaning and conscious elements added in, not just the physical universe only.


The shape, form, of one’s Life World, entwined within the Greater Worlds. Something that can be investigated. Why? Because its more enhanced, more meaningful. We need it. Improved functionality, and truer identity. One can live a better life. That’s what I needed in the past.
