Another level of self knowledge

This lifetime I began my journey in earnest, with conscious intent, in 1997. I'm 62 now and I have learned so very much about myself, and my past lives, many of them as a Taoist. For myself, balance, has been the key. Balance of pairs and opposites of all the energy in the universe as it balances within the dual system that I am. If the energy of the moon can pull the waters of the oceans what does it do to us without our being aware of its effects on us?

I am a combination of the human animal man and the spiritual divine being I was/am before I took on human form. I believe we all are. We have both these energetic systems within us Heaven and Earth. This is at the core of what is hidden within Taoism. This system, what it is, how it acts on us and how we can use the knowledge of Taoism to stay in balance in our yellow middle unaffected by the energetic world around us and achieve the peace of Wu wei.

It is not as simple as thinking you are, but requires us to dig down through our past lives remembering, identifying all the unresolved "stuff' resolving it, removing it from our energy. I have been blessed/cursed with remembering. Very painful to remember, but very blessed to be walking through it.

It has been a long long trying taxing journey from the beginning to today, to this moment. I would not change a thing.

This morning I was shown that all that I have remembered and learned this lifetime I will carry with me into my next lifetime and I will remember from an early age what I have learned practicing Taoism over the eons. I feel truly blessed to have this knowing.

Brian

That's wonderful news for you <3

But du you not also believe that time is an illusion and that all lives happen simultaneously, in the now. (But perceived as linear each?)

Hi Brian, I also have examined all the opposites I've come across within myself and resolved what needs to be resolved, and then harmonised what has been sorted. It's a fascinating journey, opposites are so fundamental, and sorting them so that they can function in tune naturally is my primary goal.

some guy rather rudely pointed out that even if that is true, you could STILL measure changes in things. And the fact of being able to measure changes is of course what constitutes the definition of the measurement of time? So according to that you haven't gotten away from it but rather just run it off into the distance.

On those terms... it could be argued that the current seemingness of time that we have, while itself is an illusion, is an illusion constructed to instruct us about something we might not find so obvious in our 'natural' state where we don't have the crutch whatever that is. 5D or whatever is all the rage this week I guess...

the guy was only rude because it stopped me dead in my tracks and I couldn't preach what I was preaching any more lol! But good for him

well you asked?

Thanks, Brian. I can't think of one single concept that has been more helpful to me over the years than that of balance. Now, applying that might at times be downright painful, but it is a constant, both as a practice and as a way of looking at life.

Consciousness is the great illusion of 3D { XYZ } + Time { Observed }.


Jacob Bekentstiens black hole mathematics led him into holographic scenarios and to make the following statement to Scientific American.
..'we appear to be 2D creatures having an illusion of 3D'.....


The best way Ive come to grasp how we could be 2D having illusion of 3D + time is via the tetrahedron turning itself inside-out, via its 4 vertexes.


See LINK



One vertex { nodal point } travels through the diametrically opposite triangular opening, however, at the half-way point we have a condition of 2D, as, a subdivided 2D triangle \Y/ { area as three smaller triangles enclosed by larger triangle } and gives a us a birds-eye-view of the tetrahedron.


So we can see this above as 2D piece of plywood or other substance, as soon as the center moves out of the 2D plane, we condition of warped 2D.



With the 2D subdivided triangle we see that as soon as the nuclear vertex moves outside of that plane we both;


1} a warped 2D { area } subdivided triangle, and,


2} a 3D { volume } tetrahedron.


* i * > 3D > 2D >- | -> 3D > * i *

I have often wondered about multidimensional worlds, but it is beyond my knowing. Thanks Brian

Cool. Key for me is remembering that whatever I experience from other people, places, and things I use my freewill to react to, is just a mirror for something within myself. Thanks Brian

Take the Trigrams of Fu hsi, the earlier heaven ones from the I Ching, and the five agent theory components and lay them out on a circular grid. This is a 2D representation of all the energetic relationships on the universe. Key for us is to stay in the yellow middle, but the human brain center of consciousness experiences these emotions and this pulls us off center and when we pull off center we spin with the circular motion of the grid. Balancing this energy is a moment by moment task for each of us.

Thanks.

Brian

How about we are timeless pure spirit being housed in this human brain centered body, having a human experience. We shift our consciousness from Heart center spirit to brain center human back and forth back and forth.

Trick is to blend the two that already exists within us into one and create balance so we can stay in the yellow middle? Thanks. Brian
