I would like to share something I have intuitively felt for quite some time, regarding the story of Jesus and Judas. It was later that I would find that it has precedent, in ancient gospels like the gospel of Judas, as well as in general with the majority of the biblical text.

I believe that the story of the crucifixion is very much a story about overcoming death. Jesus understood that he had to die. He asked Judas to have him killed. I assume that Judas originally had a very difficult time accepting this. Eventually, he did what Jesus asked of him, and eventually it would be interpreted as a betrayal. Judas later killed himself. This could have been out of guilt, or it could have been in the same vein as Jesus himself, overcoming death.

The message of Christ is Universal. It has nothing to do with any boundary which presumes a separation. The ‘good news’ is that all material/physical separation has been transcended, when death was overcome by yeshua(jesus). ‘The Kingdom,’ Perfect Reality, already exists, in a timeless realm which has been reached. When we are ready for it, through easing our own bias differentiations, we can realize it for ourself. This is how we ‘take up the cross,’ become like Christ, go into our own place, the Kingdom.

There are four layers of the one mind, the one consciousness. By descending through these four levels, you eventually get material reality from the realm of infinity. The Jewish Qabalists called these layers the four worlds. They are, truly, as four realms of existence. I will explain these four worlds, including the qabalistic names for them, as well as some correspondences to elucidate the meaning. Note that these exist in a wide-scale, as in the creation of the entire universe. Yet, simultaneously, it is possible to note this process occurring within yourself. The entire pattern, or process, of creation is going on within yourself, right now. You must simply learn to become aware of the process as it occurs.

In order from deepest level to most surface level…

1. Qabalists called this the world of atzilut, meaning ‘eminated from,’ as in eminated from the Infinite. This is also called the archetypal world. It represents the collective unconscious, the sum of all the archetypes, the shared, essential elements of experience. This is a masculine principle; it represents stillness. This is because it does not change. This is the Y of the tetragrammaton, most holy name of god in the hebrew tradition: YHWH.

This is yud, ‘Y’

2. This is called the world of b’riah, creation. This represents the soul. Alternatively, this represents the individual subconscious. This is one individual arrangement of the archetypes. This represents the feminine principle. It is the first H of the tetragrammaton.
This is heh, ‘H’

This is called yitzirah, the world of formation. It is said that in this world, concrete plans of creation are made, concrete steps to manifestation. It is also said that emotional involvement occurs at this stage. This represents the conscious mind. It is the essential premise, or assumption, behind any experience. It is the imminent potential for experience, or perception. You could also say this represents the ‘medium’ behind Marshall McLuhan’s famous phrase, “The medium is the message.” This is the W of the tetragrammaton.
This is vav, originally ‘waw,’ W.

4. This is called the world of assiyah, action. This represents physical reality, material existence. It is called ‘The Kingdom.’ At this level there is apparently total independence. This is the ultimate goal, or purpose, of creation. This is the ego. It manifests as external ‘things,’ or as self-driven actions. It is the message in McLuhan’s “The medium is the message.” This is the 2nd H of YHWH.

This is the tetractys, mystical shape of Pythagoreas. It is represented using the four letters of YHWH, though. The top point represents the first world, the collective unconscious, and working your way down is working your way towards the most surface level of consciousness. Notice how the letter of each of the worlds is added onto the existing one each level down, but the existing letter remains. This is because the influence of the previous ‘letter,’ or world, or level of consciousness, continues to have its impact on each level down. And yet it moves more into the background at that level.

For things to flow smoothly, efficiently, and desirably, each level must have a trust in the level above it. This is because any given level is a limited selection of the options presented at the higher level. Ego is a selection, an identification, of the possibilities generated by the essential premise of the conscious mind. Similarly, the premise of the conscious mind is a singular manifestation of the wider pattern of elements that is the individual sub-conscious. The individual subconscious is one possible arrangement of the archetypes, the elements in the collective unconscious. By definition, then, no level can ever know more than, or even as much as, the level above it. Thus if one acts without trusting the level above, confusion inevitably follows.

My body is my Temple. Anything that distracts me from reclusive and absorbed presence in the Temple is irreverent and irrelevant. This Temple is inherently there. No movement or action is required at all to be in your Holy Place. Any movement that is not purposefully of a pragmatic or ecstatic nature should be discarded. This means movements of body, but it also means movement of the eyes, and speech, and mental activity. So much of our energies are used for completely pointless activities. We sit around and fidget, move our eyes around, and analyze everything, because we don’t know how to be still, and feel we always have to be doing something. Ecstatic union with God is impossible in such a state.

Our baseline of ‘stillness’ is actually quite a high amount of movement or perceptual activities, and we become entirely de-sensitized to that range of activity, as if it is nothing. All things that happen to us are judged in relation to that baseline, which is a farily high level of activity. We have no sensitivity. We cannot experience ecstacy. We cannot know God. All of this unnecessary activity degrades your Temple. The aim of life is to know Self, to know God. God is not found through activities in the world, but through seeking him in his Temple, your body.

Let me try to paint a brief visual picture, for the purposes of assisting in understanding some of what I am about to talk about. Imagine a dot sitting in the center of two circles that surround it. This ‘dot’ is your center, your true nature. It is choiceless awareness, the flow, what comes before all perception and thought. The circle nearest the center is your mental overlay on reality, your ego-intention. The more you place your concepts over reality, and the more you act out of ego-intention, the further out this circle goes. The further out circle is perceptual intensity. Through deviating from the center in mental overlay and ego-intention, the inner-circle expands, which decreases the relative intensity of perception, since as it expands it goes nearer to that circle. You can see, then, that there is an inverse relationship between perceptual intensity and the amount of mental overlay and ego-intention.

Thinking about reality in terms of preferences increases the ego-circle, as does activity just for activity’s sake, as well as trying to force thought or action in response to uncertainty or confusion. A decrease in relative intensity of perception creates dullness, and also causes reality to work less hard for your attention. Perceptual intensity can be interpreted as how hard reality works for your attention. It often plays off things you want, but at less intense levels it generally alludes to things you want, to stir up mental activity without actually bringing about fulfillment. When we continuously deviate from center chasing after un-fulfilling allusions to things we would like, reality sees that it doesn’t have to give you much to get your attention, and so it continues to give you things of the same degree of intensity.

Through remaining centered during these references, reality sees it must work harder for your attention, and so higher levels of perceptual intensity come about, increasing the amount of true fulfillment. Perceptual intensity tends to be somewhat static, but if we can remain centered during these standard levels of perceptual intensity, this will increase energy levels through increasing perceptual intensity. When a relative increase to perceptual intensity occurs, become single-pointedly focused on that perception, without mental overlay. This will allow you to ‘soak in’ the higher energy levels, without being deviated from center.

Think of all polarities in reality in the energetic sense, positive and negative charges. Keep in mind like charges repel, and opposite charges attract. The polarity is defined by a neutral center. This all proves the yin/yang concept of Tao. Choosing one polarity creates the opposite. Moving to positive is like infusing neutrality with a positive charge, which means moving towards the positive force with a positive charge, which means repulsion away from the positive. Simultaneously, this positive charge that is created becomes attracted to the negative. Remember, now, this whole positive-negative energy thing is just the scientific way of expressing how energy works, but this concept of polarity applies to all mental and physical phenomena. The most relatable and understandable way of looking at this is our process of conceptualization, where every concept we conceive of inherently implies its opposite. The inherent duality of language.

All motion, whether mental or physical, is towards a polar end. This motion creates the previously described process of attraction and repulsion, and this creates a complex reaction that ultimately permeates the entire universe. All motion ultimately spreads through all space and time. As you move towards one polar end, say positive, and it pushes you towards the opposite end(negative), the positive end is stimulated in a way that is based on the motion, for it must be to repel in this way. It also stimulates the negative end based on itself, for it must in order to attract. At every single point, the entirety of the polarity of energy is being stimulated based on the specific motion, through this process. Seen in this way, which is the true reality of things, you can see how every single action is an energy that rings through and alters all space and time.

Our minds, and the ‘physical matter’ it perceives, is what creates the perception of ‘motion’ over ‘time,’ and things ‘actually’ existing in certain states. Quantum mechanics uses the term ‘superposition’ to describe the reality of things prior to observation. In the non-observed reality, things exist in all possible states simultaneously. Prior to observation, the forces are allowed to exist naturally, which means as a simultaneous network of attractive and repulsive forces throughout all space and time. Upon the mind’s observation, reality’s energies must condense to one ‘actual’ way of existing in physical reality, but this is just one of many possible ways of existing.  Every possibility is equally ‘real,’ and each one makes up its own ‘universe,’ and combined they make up the multiverse, which is every possibility simultaneously existing in the energy network.

This is an age of transformation. This is not a transformation in space. Not some shift in power-structures, some development in popular ideology. This is an opening of the gates of time. It is a revalation of the multi-verse, the initial phase of the infinite possible realities in the space-time continuum revealing themselves to you. This present reality you find yourself in is merely a bridge. The structures of your world, your government and society, are of the past. Their time is not where YOU are from, not the true home of your consciousness.

First Wave Of Transmissions: Initiated

Though the ‘dominant-society’ you find yourself in is of past periods of Evolution, the First Wave of Transmissions from the Future have been initiated. Messages from the future are being offered to you. The first stage is only the very first glimpse, and if you don’t understand what to look for you may brush it off as nothing. In the First Wave, somewhat ‘random’ people may give you these messages, and you may rationalize it in such a way that it is just some person with some opinion, or some person with some creative expression, that doesn’t really have much impact on the world. This is just the way the information gets through in this wave.

Come to understand that every expression comes from a place that is its own reality, its own location in space-time. ‘Time’ is a simultaneous network of conscious connections, and the evolution in terms of range of things considered in these connections, and speed and efficiency of making them, sort themselves out as ‘time.’ As evolution occurs, you move from the ‘past’ to the ‘future,’ but this is just the way this simultaneous network logically sorts itself out. Everything you ever hear or see, whether it be someone talking to you or music or any other expression, consider where it comes from, on its own terms not in relation to your own perception of reality. Consider the fantastic realities that the various expressions in your reality stem from. These are the messages, and they come from those realities, which are of the future. Everything you are presented with in your reality can be traced back to its own location in time, or space-time. To follow a certain type of expression is to follow a path to its location. What path will you follow?

F=mA(Force = mass x acceleration)
As there is an inverse relationship between mass and acceleration, mass could be interpreted as the tendency to stay in the same space. You might say larger mass increases attraction, and this is true in a way, but what you are attracting is objects of a similar nature, in similar space, to what currently is, and that may not be your preference, just where you happen to be. Lower mass and higher acceleration is better for unpreferential spaces. Higher mass and lower acceleration is better for preferable spaces.  Acceleration is increased through going within, or not actively moving outwards and partaking in actions based on intentions; this is also assisted by creating space between you and the objects in your reality.
Objects exist in space. To give space between yourself and the objects in your reality is to allow freedom of change for those objects. Objects inherently fall into place based on the nature of the space, so allowance for change of objects means that you are open to change in the space that you occupy. Intentional actions create lots of outward momentum, and since reality is INHERENTLY circular, this creates many large circular loops, thereby increasing mass, thereby increasing your tendency to stay in the same space. Losing intention is assisted through decreasing the amount of attention that is focused externally. Not paying attention to external happenings, and not having intentions in relation to externals, creates space, gives the external freedom of motion, which increases your tendency to change the space you occupy, or increases acceleration.
This increased acceleration allows for greater freedom, through greater allowance, but there remains the issue of individual flavor, personal preferences. Whatever mass you do have, and there will always be mass, will have a certain signature to it. This signature is its tendency towards some particular space. Intention, particularly intentional actions, creates mass, whose signature is of its own essence. Its essence is defined by the space it occupies, or the circumstances surrounding it. So, through focusing on things and acting out intentions that are consistent with your preferences, you work those preferences into the signature of your mass, which is your tendency to occupy a certain space. Through, in non-preferential circumstances, losing focus and intention, you remove those from your mass-signature, thereby reducing its tendency to be a part of your reality. Simultaneously, this non-intention and non-focus increases acceleration, which increases your ability to shift through spaces.

As long as there are beings of the hive mentality, there must necessarily be a hive. History consists of power structures and social structures intended to draw in and pacify un-evolved individuals. These were created by evolved individuals, of higher levels of consciousness. An evolved individual has little use for structures, individually. These structures are necessary for much of the population, however, so they are created. As history progresses, new individuals appear who transcend the hive, and through them the hive self-destructs, and a new hive comes into existence(Foo Fighters – Walk “Do you remember the days, we built these paper mountains, and sat and watched them burn”).

Most people need structure, or they will be confused and without any sense of direction. So structure has been created, for their own benefit. Every structure created in this world was intended to self-destruct, and it will be so. The time is very soon, and the thought of a ‘new age’ is widespread, although at this time it is seen as somewhat of a fantasy. The time is coming that the system in its entirety will truly come down, to be replaced by a new one that is more suitable to individual evolution(Foo Fighters – Walk “Still inside, a whisper to a riot”).

Consider social and power structures to be walls put up by evolved individuals, to give themselves freedom. They come into existence through them, and cannot disturb them. The masses work within their framework, but they are reflections of the evolved individuals, and so merely serve as a barrier between them and any possible disturbances. Endless bureaucracy creates perfect freedom for the individual the structures are created through. These individuals can continue their evolution, and their refinement of their own ‘perfect reality,’ while the rest of the people work within the framework of the hive.

Singularities create worlds. Each singularity has their own world, their own reality. Until you awaken your inner singularity, you are occupying someone else’s world, though your singularity is always reaching out to you. The singularity is the ultimate state of non-duality. The singularity leads you to your own world, what I have called ‘the perfect reality.’ It is inevitable. It has been set into motion.(Broken Bells – The High Road “It’s too late to change your mind”) The singularity that you are, that which has or is its own world, is within, not without. A singularity comes about through ‘high gravitational pull,’ and is ‘infinitely small and infinitely dense.’ You cannot possibly find the singularity by going outwards, only by going within. Through going within you increase your attraction, and more and more you will see the singularity without, but that is a reflection of within.

When we think of the world, it can seem so large that we feel miniscule and irrelevant. When we think of the pervasiveness of culture and celebrities, this can make us feel particularly irrelevant to the world, when we see how far-reaching the work of certain individuals are. The sense is that in the modern world there is a never before seen power and pervasiveness of culture and its icons, which consequently renders us an irrelevant nobody in the cultural machine. Now consider your own conceptualization of culture, mass media, music, movies, etc. You may say we have become over-obsessed with these things, causing us to by and large fit within pre-determined national or global molds. But I say to you that this is not true, but rather this represents the unparalleled evolution of the individual consciousness, simply not yet understood.

I, and some others who speak of spiritual matters, talk about how our reality is a construction of our own consciousness. That is to say that our reality is created by our own consciousness, and is itself our own consciousness interacting with itself through apparent individualization. If we are to be consistent with our understanding, this necessarily includes this massive cultural system we feel trapped within. Music, television, movies, etc. that reach millions upon millions of viewers are your own consciousness reaching a never before heard of audience, having a never before heard of range of influence. We’re evolving, and this modern phenomena of mass cultural influence is a testament to the evolution of our own consciousness. If you are able to penetrate the ‘illusion,’ and see clearly, you will see that culture is the play of your own consciousness, working itself out on a mass scale. You cannot be trapped or disempowered in any way. In fact, if this is truly seen, all repression you have ever felt is removed, and you will feel empowered beyond what you have ever imagined. Nothing you perceive is beyond your own personal range of influence; what you perceive is the result of your range of influence.

 

Welcome to Lila, the play of reality that Hindus speaks of. One should not confuse ‘external’ perceptions as being necessarily calls to action for your body or mind. These are simply ‘meaningless’ projections of the energies existing within your consciousness, being projected as external perceptions so as to evoke a response from you. This is Lila, the play. Learn to see this play as being literally playful. It is playful because your highest consciousness knows the totality of signals/symbols you have accumulated over your existence, and is able to see trends in the way that you react to certain things. The Universe exists so that meaning may be given to it, and your highest consciousness facilitates the Universe’s desire for meaning by giving you objects of perception it believes will draw a reaction out of you, through which meaning will be created. This is a playful game, because it projects these symbols and perceptions into your reality simply because it knows you are likely to react, and give meaning to it, despite the fact that it knows that these meanings do not truly exist.

Now the Universe is not particularly concerned with what meaning it is given. This is a very significant point. It simply wants meaning, and whatever meaning you tend towards will be facilitated through perceptual events. Your ability to give meaning to reality is the same as your ability to create reality. As I say, your reality is designed to provoke you into reacting and giving it meaning. If you are given to reacting to mundane and common things, reality will give you more mundane and common things of like nature. If the mundane and common nearly escapes your attention, reality will become more creative in its attempting to provoke a meaningful response out of you. It will appeal to higher, more creative, aspects of your consciousness. As you go higher, and maintain the focus of your consciousness on higher and more creative meanings, reality will reflect more of it. Keep your ‘head in the clouds,’ for the higher your interests, and the less concerned you are with the lower and mundane, the more reality will conform to those higher interests, in terms of the external perceptions it provides. Reality is designed to give you objects to project meaning onto. The better you become at creative projections, the more creative your reality will get, and the more control you can have in its design.
