A Poet’s Synchronicity

It is not like there isn’t a physical world or body; but one is also completely imbedded in a level of interpretation towards everything, a World View, with underlying perspectives dealing with it all. Its not just a concept; but it is intelligent, conscious, alive, full of Spirit . . . our Intentionality. I call this structure the “Life World.” Its not the ultimate, though, for it is also in interaction with an even “Greater World,” multifaceted, multidimensional, and fully encompassing.


With these externalized people involvements, I was saying to myself that I got to be more “core,” not involved in the old generic ways. True, most of us start at the social/personal level, the issue being the social presentation, and then what is going on behind the scenes. This becomes a little more abstract, symbolic, and we get the internalization/externalization movements going on. We end up with our worlds, societies, ways, personalities . . . whatever.

There are also even further levels of functioning involved here, consciousness with Intent: this construct can be viewed as a reality. Its not something that can be pinned down to one thing, as well: its all in motion, evolving and changing, continuously. Buddhists would say, don’t cling, let it flow.

Its not just an idea, its a form, a structure within the ever changing context of our place in the universe.

Core elements deal with this more intrinsic reality, functioning. There are higher levels of approach.

Levels, hey? True, I had no sense of the “other,” and the “universe,” of our intrinsic nature calling to us, leading us on, at first. I was pretty much at the sociable level, needing to know more of the “games people play” before I could move on, though I did have some solid starting ways and ideas. Ultimately, I realized people were just “externalizing,” and that was about it. So, there might of been something else going on in me, that I was struggling with, other than what you all were considering. There’s a greater context to some of these other parts of oneself, or even the truer Self.


On the one hand, we are at the typical; and on the other, we can be at the enhanced or the greater.

This is where work can be done . . . “Where one is at,” can be studied, perspectives compared, meanings unveiled . . .

As far as intent goes, its like the Life World within the Greater World, with its stages of interactive meaning. Further guidance may come, mythologically, with Joseph Campbell, in the Hero’s quest, going from the ordinary world through the special world; or psychoanalytically, with Washburns’s investigations of the development of the ego and then the return to the dynamic ground.

Its not just about the “nasty,” as you ordinary people think, or symbolize: that’s probably because you are “stuck” in the “given:” ultimately, its about our intrinsic levels, that are  interconnected with it all . . . ! Ah, when you saw me start to get moving . . . the Mysterion!

I got to the point when I realized we are “a Self entwined within the Universe in an interactive field of meaning and knowledge.”


“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.


“Traditional peoples know that everything is interconnected. All is infused with energy and power from the same source. This enables a hunter in the Amazon to merge with the qualities of a jaguar for stealth and swiftness desired to catch his prey. It makes it possible for a healer in the high Andes to embody an active volcano, Shapeshifting into the sacred mountains of his region and engulfing clients in fire to incinerate illness. A Buginese sailor in Indonesia can blend with the consciousness of a frigate bird and fly across the ocean to chart his ship’s course. A Siberian shamanic elder can don her feathered headdress and soar like an eagle into non-physical spiritual realms. There she can gather power, energy and insight to help villagers recover from cultural oppression. The notion of oneness is integral to the hunter, healer, navigator or community leader. They can access power from other realities and adopt perceptions of other life forms. Hence these people are intermediaries to the spiritual forces of the web of life they tap into.”

Roberts, Llyn. Shapeshifting into Higher Consciousness: Heal and Transform Yourself and Our World with Ancient Shamanic and Modern Methods (pp. 12-13). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“To consciously Shapeshift we direct intention to alter energy and form. Energy includes thoughts and emotions. As well, it includes the underlying spiritual blueprint or subtle force-field of anything material. Form is anything we perceive as solid or physical; for example, our bodies, buildings, cars, the earth and the elements. Yet form can also be institutions, governments, behaviors, organized religions. It can be any structure constellating itself in a defined way.”

Attempting to move my perspective up . . . it was like I was trying to put on a visor, like Geordi La Forge’s . . .

So, for the next day, I got out Monroe’s hemisync tapes . . .

Listening to the tapes . . . it was if a faint circle of light was surrounding me . . . in another, as I focused, it was like I was facing a groomed white haired elder or master, directly ahead of me, with his touching hands closed in front of him, guiding, encouraging me . . . not like in prayer, but more like my kitties paws when she is trying to be very gentle in her connection touching me . . .


I was wondering about Yvonne. We drive and I don’t get to see her face to face. I was thinking of the darker energies consequently, for I wasn’t activated there. Some deep surge of intent kicked in here, over that, reorientating, adjusting, as I moved in that other direction. It was like the other parts of that jig saw puzzle, bringing in the bigger picture, came to the fore. Though I can’t remember what it was all about.

Then I had the consideration of this woman I saw at the coffee shop: there was a deeper movement, then it wasn’t the typical images we have of people, like from a book or TV. It was like I saw this darker “sunglass lens,” orientated horizontally, with two shafts of light, one going above and one below. Symbolic of light going through a lens? She was playing with her sunglasses: that must of been the possible connector.


When I wake up at night, I like to go and sit on my recliner: it keeps me more focused, then lying in bed. But the population in this area is increasing, more noisy traffic is continuously going by. Then I got the bright idea of putting on the noise cancelling headphones I use to listen to the tapes: it was silent, dark, and I immediately was drawn into other foci.  It was like a swirling cloud of energy, twisting and moving into other dimensions. Before hand I was dreaming of this floor runner going down the stairs and then over in a different direction. This must of been “pre,” though it missed a lot of an actual experience.


Interpreting

There has always been the problem of interpreting, or finding a path, for these ways. Whether individually, or for people with their externalizing ways, generic and colloquial. There’s some battles going on out there.

When one can focus though, use intentionality, it can become quite specific to the situation at hand, a learning process, an evolution. I’ve been thinking that one can move on and through this way.


So, rather than in “separate mode,” with the person separate from world, man from Heaven, or the conscious mind divided from the unconscious, there is an interconnection, another form of functioning.

We get the “games people play,” the internalization/externalization dialectic: but even physics can say, these days:

“During both dreams and waking hours, our minds collapse probability waves to generate a physical reality that comes complete with a functioning body. “

Like I said: “We are a Self entwined within the Universe in an interactive field of meaning and knowledge.”


. . . 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.


From the perspective of intent, it was like I was viewing a road from a high, as if I was in an airplane. I also came in, as if I was wearing these nerd glasses, like I was presented as understanding more.

There was always these down to Earth issues of men and women, and how I should deal with that. From this higher perspective, I got a couple images that stopped me in my tracks, surprised me. It was if a “mother” came in, and I viewed her beautiful long dark hair from the back. The next time I got this image of a square, blue, with crisscrossing abstract geometries , symbolic. That’s definitely more.


Who Are You?

There was a dream . . . quieting the physical body/world . . . but awareness was still active . . . what we are seeing here is a change of context, orientation . . . our Life World.

Within this unique position, other stuff is allowed to arise, and we are in a more independent berth to examine it and deal with it.

These new orientations can be abstract, creative, complex . . . things can be “redrawn” from within the unique perspective of that more encompassing orientation. Its not just redoing our generic, colloquial realities and interpretations.


Our Intrinsic nature, one with the universe, in touch with all the multifaceted realities, and as with intent and the figure/ground, its how we can function here. There’s the bigger picture, and the Ground, our Life world within the Greater world, that guides us.


Moving out of that typical ”mold,” or form; but still functional, aware . . .

The world is a “construct:” its not just us relating to an external world. Its more like a camera with its selective view, and the resultant creation, photo. It seems unchanging; but its all continuously happening in real time. One needs to uncover that core aspect, functioning. Synchronously:

Within that extended context, it was like I was moving through an old neighborhood, around 8th Street. There was that old small white house, with a vacant lot next to it: I was trying to fit up that lot with my globular body I had at the time. True, I did know about intent and its selections back then; but it was only now that I could get further along and recapitulate that. Was I doing that? The situation went along, symbolically, as I moved a block down laterally: I was at the “Civic” “Center,” (of or relating to a citizen, a city, citizenship, or community affairs. Merriam-Webster.), looking into the street level glass door, with another opportunity higher up on the roof. I saw the face of my truck reflected there; with a sporty multidimensional vehicle up top, with somebody else looking down. This may have represented the two types of opportunities, and ways, I had back then.

I was going to get active to see Yvonne; but suddenly I was drawn into this unfolding interaction. You know how it feels to bend over and tie one’s shoelaces; though this was more comprehensive, as I was arranging and adjusting how my bodily form was arranged. The issue seemed to be how I was bringing in some of Yvonne’s body images here. There was some changes.


Some infer that this people thing is only “selective.” When one looks at clouds though, and sees images, its apparent that the mind, consciousness, is doing work here in rearranging, creating that new view. Something caught my attention, and I saw two people, high up, clothed in colorful robes.

I had an image of this mid-Eastern type person, though this was active, as if blue energy was twisting and forming around his head, like in the shape of their twisted head cloths. I had the thought, I should go visit the university: there was a golden energy disc moving in”that way.”

The intent, and energetics are coming in.


As I was lying in the bathtub, I could feel my body image, with my legs stretched up and feeling the tub on the other side. Suddenly this was reprogrammed, as if I was moving a gate open with my foot, and seeing this grand vista opening up, with my new perspective, me, looking out as if from up high.


Sitting, becoming quiet . . . the flow of manifest and unmanifest . . . moving from the apparent into the intrinsic . . .

A figure arising from the ground . . . turn it into an “object,” or realize the ground doesn’t disappear, “emptiness” . . .

Going with the flow of our more intrinsic nature and Greater World . . . essentials emerging from that, the core Intent.

“Where one is at” . . . suddenly our more integrated Self can appear . . . feeling stronger, more together, focused.

Our Life World within the Greater World . . . we can start doing our work here: “A Self entwined within the Universe, in an interactive field of meaning and knowledge.”

On one hand we got the typical stuff, and on the other, extensions into the enhanced, excursions into the Greater. Its a process of working it out, a therapy, not just promoting the “lame,” or not.


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.”

“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.

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 . . .


entryimage


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.

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.”

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

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.”

“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.”

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!
