I wanted to take a moment to post a direct quote from an individual I find to be extraordinary, C.W. Leadbeater. I will not comment personally as I am but a student of these concepts and my words or interpretation may only contribute to further misunderstanding. However I will continue to post direct passages such as this when I come across something that personally impacts me and would like to properly share.
“… It is exceedingly doubtful whether this phenomenon ever occurs. In almost every conceivable case man breaks the law through ignorance or heedlessness, and not of deliberate intention. When once a man really knows and sees the divine intention he inevitably come into harmony with it, for two reasons: at an earlier stage because he sees the utter futility of doing otherwise, and later because, seeing the glory and beauty of the design, he cannot but throw himself into its execution with all the powers of his heart and soul. One of the most serious of the many misconceptions which we have inherited from the dark ages is that what is called “sin” is a perversity to be met with punishment and savage persecution, instead of what it really is, the result of a condition of ignorance that can only be dealt with by enlightenment and education. It may be objected that in daily life we constantly see people doing what they must know to be wrong, but this is a misstatement of the case. They are doing what they have bee told is wrong, which is quite a different matter. If a man really knows that an action is wrong, and that it will inevitably be followed by evil consequences, he is careful to avoid it. A man really knows that fire will burn him; therefore he does not put his hand into it. It will be found that everyone who does wrong will justify the wrong action himself at thew time of its commission, whatever he may think about it after-wards in cold blood. So I say that sin as ordinarily understood is a figment of the theological imagination; what really exists is an unfortunate condition of ignorance which often leads to infraction of the divine law. This ignorance it is our duty to endeavor to dispel by the light of theosophy.”

In addition to the singular use of binaural exposure… Some as yet unknown combination of stimuli may in fact represent the true key to unlocking the final step to achieve a pure sense of harmony. By this I mean that if in fact we are able to “tune” ourselves to the state of the Universe instead of constantly being at odds within the great “chord” of life, finally resolving the dissonant chord and coming into perfect harmony with everything. What a path toward achievement that would be indeed. I find it odd that a major focus has not been placed upon this thought methodology. I have read and seen evidence to support that our aura, a vibration that we all exude, can be manipulated to in fact cure illness… Even if this is totally ludicrous, why haven’t we formally disproved it? Why are we content to simply accept that it is non-viable? This I do not understand. I will continue to work on this topic and expose myself to these experiments and post the results as they are achieved. I can already say that binaural auditory exposure absolutely has an impact on your state of mind. To expound on this, at the very least i have been able to consistently achieve what is refereed to as the “theta” state of brainwave activity, most closely associated with the REM dream state. From only a 30 minute exposure I have NEVER been able to remain conscious throughout the entire duration of exposure. Obviously this is not the desired result, in fact maintaining consciousness while simultaneously maintaining the theta brainwave state is the desired conclusion, however my experiences still support a conclusion of success. other people I have made the recommendation of binaural exposure have had similar results. I postulate that complete sensory exposure would yield profound results. The correct combination may be an abstract to say the least, however like all things scientific, experiment is the key to realized success. I guess I will have to be the proverbial “guinea pig” here.
I always seem to be searching for something more. It can really be exhausting, frustrating, maddening, etc… Lately i have come “on to” the concept of vibration. “The human body is made up of electronic vibrations, with each atom and element of the body, each organ and organism, having its electronic unit of vibration necessary for the sustenance of, and equilibrium in, that particular organism” says Edgar Cayce, is he correct? Aside from visual, in which is much more difficult to actually perceive vibration (well you can see it pretty clearly plucking a guitar string), sound is the main interpreter of vibration. Could this be why we are so moved by music… audible vibration? Our bodies are nothing more than fields of energy @ their core right down to each atom. Our atoms are held together by some force unknown, invisible, and the atoms themselves are empty? What the hell does that mean? No matter how closely science looks, we can hardly find a substance that isn’t just another form of energy contained withing seemingly empty space. This energy can not be created or destroyed, and all things happen as the result of it. All the events in our lives are based on the absorption and reflection this binding energy. I guess this ties in nicely with the binaural beats I have been creating and using for some time. Although I have not mastered the ranges by any means, they have proven to be quite effective in placing me into the desired state on demand. A possibly interesting correlation might be to use tones which can be derived from the earth, the sun, the moon, and every other planet and moon within our solar system by looking at the octaves of the orbit frequency. I mean, wouldn’t we certainly be affected by all of these celestial bodies? A little more about that… “In the late 1500’s, a mathematician and astronomer, named Johannes Kepler, discovered that the distance between the planets’ orbits mathematically create the intervals of a consonant musical scale, a theory which came to be known as “the music of the spheres”. Not only did his work inspire centuries of continued research in cosmic harmony, but his spirit has lived on in numerous symphonic works, based on his musical ideas…” Hummm.. would seem we have the “proof in the pudding’ so to speak. Let’s expand this a bit shall we…? Since the rotation of the earth is, on average, 1 pulsation per 24 hours, we can transpose it upwards by 24 octaves to arrive at 194.18Hz (this literally defines “Earth-Tone”…get it???), which is pretty close to a “G” note. This frequency also happens to be in unison with a particular shade of orange, orange-red, which is known to increase cell growth. The color orange-red is the 65th octave of an earth day and maximum resonance of the DNA chains (carriers of genetic information) lies exactly in the middle of the 66th octave of the day. This maximum is the first overtone of the color orange-red. Since the tone that vibrates most strongly with the fundamental tone is the first overtone, this color also entails the vibration of the DNA chains, thus multiplying their vibration rate. This explains why this color has such a vitalizing effect. In Western music, orchestras tune their instruments to “A”, which is otherwise known as “concert pitch”. In India, instruments are tuned to C sharp, which happens to be the 32nd octave of the earth year. Hydrogen being 90% of all matter, including ourselves (ALL matter), possibly 84.5Hz has some significance? I will experiment with this a bit and if possible provide the audio file…
Vibration is a deep rooted part of our existence although many natural frequencies lie outside of our perception, we fail to recognize what effect they have on our thoughts and emotions, how they synchronize physical processes, hold our bodies and our universe together. Learning how to identify and utilize these frequencies and waveforms is kind of what I am currently engaged in…
Links to some interesting tools to facilitate what i am talking about in this post:
I found this in one of the 100+ year old Bibles that I own… called the “Picture Bible” published in 1903. I found it to be quite relevant today as well… “The child who chooses to obey finds his home a happy place. He is not afraid when he hears his father’s or mother’s voice, but is quick to answer and glad to hear all they say. But the child who loves his own way best and disobeys the commands that are given by those who love him, is not happy. He wants to hide away when he has done wrong, for his heart tells him he has listened to the tempter & yielded.”
Would not Jesus have consulted Gods Holy Spirits in such matters as he did upon selection of the Disciples? True leaders with God would be chosen by Him through communication with His Holy Spirits, not by mankind. Decisions of this kind cannot be made by us in our corporeal existence for only in speaking to God can we translate such choices into correct results through His will alone.
Jesus came to serve not to rule and nothing that he did was of his own will, but that of God. Ask your self this question, “Why did not Jesus Himself write the bible?” For if it were to be the most import source for answers would He not have made sure of its accuracy? Would He not have stated this fact? The point being, we have these answers inside ourselves should we choose to seek them out through communication with God through his Holy Spirits, as Jesus did his entire adult mortal life. Your faith requires you to believe so deeply and truly that what you must believe does not make sense to you in reality. This concept reaches beyond that of normalcy as it did even in Jesus’ time to not only the disciples but all those who witnessed His works, along side all of the proof made visible by Him to our mortal sensory perception, which is why it is necessary to hear the Truth directly from the Source. If we are not physically holding a cup in our hand, we cannot have faith that the cup is in fact in our hand, but we must. The mere concept of God forces you to succumb to the reality that anything is possible, most importantly that which you do not know. Just as Jesus walked on water, so to were they (His disciples) able while they saw Him do so, yet even with Him, let alone on their own, they lost faith, thus this and/or any power. Jesus asks us to walk on our own and listen only to the word of His Father as He did by example, time and time again. Jesus was the shining example of righteousness, for at any moment He could have ended his mortal suffering by sinning, yet he did only that which was Gods will, not his own. A political party has no concern for Gods will, and at best they are genuinely concerned with the peoples will and not simply their own. Jesus would be crushed today as He was then for his “political” position, for we are still not yet concerned with the will of God but still our own, unable to abandon our own selfishness and sinning, our own corporeal and material existence, to simply do the will of God.
Question: How many circles do you see in the picture above? The answer is not 2.
Possibly related…. but maybe not, is the idea that one must accept the incomprehensible as reality for any new ground to be realized. Things that you may have missed or dismissed in the past must now be seen and more importantly scrutinized. Many things are within all of our capabilities, we just look right past them. There is a distinct separation between physical and spiritual existence. You need to find/feel that break to really be able to become aware of anything else. An easier way to describe this possibly is to imagine a car and you as the driver. In this example the car represents your physical body traversing you through life and you in your physical body driving the car represent the higher self of the car; i.e. the car is useless without you. In many ways this similarity can be used to compare life and death. If you let the car sit for months or years without use, it will decay, just like our physical bodies after death. This however does not mean that death in any way affects the higher self. So in death is the driver just no longer in the car? There is no limit to this possibility. On topic would also be that abuse to the vehicle has a negative effect on its longevity and performance, just like on our physical bodies. Conversely, if we develop the car, i.e. tune up the motor, change the oil, rotate the tires, the vehicle performs better…. also keep in mind the environment the car is in; snow, rain, off-road, racing, etc… All will require very specific tuning of the vehicle for optimal performance or even any performance at all; i.e racing slicks for mud racing? You will go no where. The point being that most people are ill-equipped for the journey and worse yet, they have no idea that they are, or even what the journey is. So if your higher self is using your physical body as its vehicle or tool of the physical existence, it is necessary to get out of the car to see it for what it really is, for if we lived our own lives never getting out of the car, look at all that we would miss. Many of the feelings/experiences you will have on this journey will be totally unfamiliar, seem unreal and be criticized by people you share them with. You are looking at things from a different perspective, remember the car… if you go past a tree at 60mph, is your view of it as clear as if you stopped the car, got out and walked up to it and looked at it/examined it? Would you have even noticed any one tree or for that matter all of the trees available for examination? Certainly not. Not to mention what else is masked by the trees themselves. This is where you are trying to go…. outside of the car to the tree, behind the tree, under its roots and on and on. Most people do not understand this, or even have the thought that this is possible or it just never enters their mind. Not all minds are ready to undertake this type of experience or journey and some that are ready are not as capable as they would like. this can help explain why as a people/species we are so disconnected. This is a life long journey and progress is dynamic, meaning you may immediately progress or take a very long time all changing from time to time and experience to experience. What makes the difference is that you must look at things from this new perspective all the time. It is all perspective. Even in a simple example one can see and understand physical perspective, we used to know the Earth was flat right? That was one perspective. We now have another perspective which was achieved because someone looked beyond and into the unknown. Allow yourself to question what you think is reality, for truly how do any of us know what is or is not real. Do you really think that in the unexplainable universe that there is no more to life? it is not possible to believe that. To illustrate this process physically, I would suggest starting to work on seeing auras. This is something that EVERYONE can do, to varying degrees, and prove to themselves that there is something outside of the normal realm of sight or outside of the “car” to reference my example.
Question: How many circles do you see in the picture above? The answer is STILL not 2.
As an introduction I would like to start by describing this as a work in progress toward a complete and singular thought about the state of physical consciousness we call reality. It will be a painstakingly tedious process to unveil the most simple and pure aspects of existence and evolution using the least amount of comprehensible written word. You see it is my postulate that to in fact progress in any direction one must first succumb to the reality that the unfathomable is the only logical place in which to start. It does not stand to reason that anything we currently understand as reality would in any way encapsulate what is the idea of the creator or God. No words, no language of any kind only the power of our imagination can unlock the abilities we must all posses, lying dormant within us at all times. Christ himself was able to pass on his own heavenly power to his disciples based only on their belief in seeing him do that which he asked of them. So is it really that unreasonable to believe that we, simply by a focused and concentrated thought would be able to alter reality? What constitutes reality? Physically it is based on response to stimuli creating a condition of recognizable and/or measurable results. Tangibility. However if we are to believe that we are a part of a greater source, then there must also be a belief that we are in fact the greater source.
Such a cliche, yes? Taken literally however, allow this to penetrate deep into your mind and ask what this really means in simplest form. It means anything is possible, however one must step outside of the norm to realize the magnitude of this. Anything is not limited by anything; no known or more importantly unknown condition. That is simply mind boggling. The unlimited aspect presented here is parallel to the idea that space is perpetually expanding. There is seemingly no limit to our imagination, which if properly focused could yield an unfounded amount of growth? I am searching for the concept here… please bare with me while I try to sort it out… Evolve — possibly a better choice? The innate flaw in this is of course “freedom of choice.” For whatever reason, we as human beings have demonstrated for all our known existence, that we can use our imagination… However we do not use it to evolve we use it to derive the most unthinkable atrocities known to any living entity. We choose to over look the obvious, ignore the subtleties all around us, pass by the anomalies… Can we not imagine a civilization in absolute harmony, without a monetary system, without cause for the abominations in present day? If you believe in any God… is there any way you would arrive upon the concept in which God would exist in our world? If we do in fact have the freedom of choice, why do we choose this existence? How can anything physical be of any importance to the “big picture?” It simply cannot. In thought I have some words to list:
I see my own point here… Does it make sense to measure in negative? Every time the concept of these words and any other like them are uttered we move in a negative parallel with that of harmony. Look at “unreal”, think about it for a moment. What is its connotation? By definition we gain… “lacking in reality or substance or genuineness; not corresponding to acknowledged facts or criteria; artificial: contrived by art rather than nature; insubstantial: lacking material form or substance.” Even the formal definition of this word has abundant use of negatives. It is a downward spiral of negative connotations, there is just no hope for a word like this in assisting to define anything but a limitation to our psyche. When was the last time you saw anything promoting free thought or “day dreaming?” Does your employer promote any kind of creative thinking? Ya … mine either, oh wait.. unless we are speaking about creatively thinking about saving or making more money… apologies. Not really the intended allowance I was going for however. As it should be clear if you have read to this point I have absolutely failed in my own initial concept, which was to use as few words as possible to describe the most profound concepts for evolution. Better luck next time…
