In the Eye of the Beholder

(or… Musings on the nature of Realities)




Reality and with it everything we experience is in the eye of the beholder. We as individuals are the observers, yet the collective of humanity is equally an observing group. In my experience of reality (realities actually), I am observing a framework that seems to echo the collective belief system. Within that framework, I can experience my own creations according to my personal beliefs, even if they differ vastly from the framework created by mass consicousness belief systems. For instance, when humanity collectively believed the earth to be flat, had they had instruments to prove it, I am pretty sure that it would have been proven correct. Then, over time, the collective belief changed and it was widely agreed upon that the earth is a ball at the center of the solar system and the sun was revolving around it. Again, if there had been instruments precise enough to prove this, it would have been proven. Then came the revolutionary thought that the earth is indeed a sphere, but that it is revolving around the sun and lo and behold, today, we have instruments and mathematics that prove this to be true.

The question is this – how could it not be proven to be true if so many folks believe it? How could we come up with mathematical and scientific proof, if it weren’t manifested? I would even go as far as to hypothesize that if it hadn’t been called into physicality by the belief of mass consciousness, nobody would have found the math or the instruments to measure it. The belief creates and calls into physicality the things that are believed by the collective, as well as by the individual within the framework of the collective, as we are always proven to be right.

It gets more complicated than this, and again it’s just my own belief, therefore I am finding it to be confirmed and true in the experiences I have. I fully agree, that there are other fine creators out there creating different things and finding them to be absolutely true – but I find that therein lies the beauty of all of the musings on the nature of reality.

We live in what is called “duality” – A polarity based environment, which is symbolized by the yin/yang principle, that is holding two opposite energies in balance. Each side contains a bit of its opposite side. There are realities within which we can experience a predominantly negative essential expression, like, war, hierarchies, poverty, hunger, oppression, you name it. Contained within are the currents of goodness, sharing, compassion, peace etc. (the dot in the greater field) – these essential experiences that are offered in this current reality of earth have been experienced for a very long time here. All shades of rulers, underlings, wars, atrocities etc have merely been shades of the same essence and nothing has really changed fundamentally. This is because the reality is what it is, it is what the collective believes it to be. However, do not despair at these words… there is an incredibly positive counter part to this reality, as there is the yin/yang principle that applies to everything. So if there is this not so pleasant reality framework on earth in which we currently experience ourselves, there must be its counterpart. In a system of polarity, it is impossible that this one reality exists in an isolated state, even if we can create the illusion that it is so.

In my experience there have been countless realities of earth experiences with varying details. Shifting from, as I call it, one timeline to another is something that happens automatically and effortlessly at every decision we make, be it ever so small a choice. Making choices creates new timelines or propels us into one that is matching the experience of the choice. As polarity has it – the choice we did not consciously make – the “non-choice” is also either finding an appropriate timeline to be experienced by source or it creates a new one. It’s that simple. Everything we think, consciously or subconsciously creates something. Something that is either completely new or something that is found in an already created timeline to which we can shift effortlessly, as easily as we leave our bodies while we sleep. To shift consicously from one timeline that irks us into one that is more pleasant to experience is a different story, but I believe it to be one of the logical next steps in the evolution of humanity’s collective consciousness.

How do we get to this point? – In my personal experience with this subject, I found that it is important to mind what questions we ask of ourselves and the world. For instance, the complaint of “why does this happen to me?” is merely focusing more energy of that which we complain about and therefore keeps us locked into experiencing this thing we don’t like. I experimented with the simple changing of this (or similar) questions and found a replacement question for moments that I do not enjoy: “In what environment, in what circumstances would I prefer to experience myself instead?” With this new question I immediately accept that there was a circumstance that was not quite to my liking and instead of fighting it, I simply accept it as if it were a dish on a buffet I happen to try but not like so much. Then as I would in the buffet analogy, I would not go back for more, but instead seek out and project my conscious thoughts toward that which I would prefer. I do this for as long as it takes until I am proven right in my own belief again, i.e. I will find the timeline in which the preferred situation is unfolding in physical and I experience myself in a different manner. Sometimes, this is an easy shift. Other times, it seems to take a bit longer, but my new question always feels better than the old complaints that kept me locked in a reality that in essence was not really enjoyable. So instead of wanting to change the reality, I project my consciousness into one that is different. What we observe we experience!

  1. It has taken me awhile to read, comprehend, absorb, reread, recomprehend, reabsorb, and FINALLY get back to maybe leave a relevant comment. Hahaha. πŸ˜› But here I am.

    Since I’ve recently been in some heated discussions regarding religion, faith, Christianity, the Holy Trinity, Satan, evil, good, righteousness, biblical exegesis, churchianity, etc, etc, and for me more importantly: history, I will mention/ask this. You state:

    We live in what is called β€œduality” – A polarity based environment, which is symbolized by the yin/yang principle, that is holding two opposite energies in balance.

    Most or many believe we and this planet will never “balance” or rebalance to correct or higher degrees of “goodness, sharing, compassion, peace” and forms of relationships the ancient Greeks called philia, agape, ludus, eros, philautia, and pragma. I always throw in there another (similar?) one: compersion. In my experience, particularly in the U.S. and bible-belt, I find these seven forms of relationships to be lacking, maybe severely lacking or non-existent. Would this be because of the collective belief, the collective framework of say… the Abrahamic religions? After all, all three of them staunchly believe in Satan, or forms of predominant Evil on this planet for all of time until a rapture of sorts.

    What are your thoughts Alaniya? πŸ™‚

    • First off, thank you so much for taking the time to read and reread my philosophical thoughts.Your question is very welcome!

      In my view of the world, I would compare what you are asking to questioning whether the black dot in the yin/yang symbol will ever become equal in size to the white field. The answer to that is “no”! Don’t stop there though. If there’s a white field with a black dot, there has to be a black field with a white dot to hold the balance that is needed for an environment of polarity (it is already balanced). From my perspective, that means there is another world exactly opposite to this one and since some of us can imagine it, it is reachable. It’s not the world that has to change (it’s actually the perfect playground to experience some specific scenarios), but in order to experience a different world, what has to change is the consciousness’ focus. In the polar opposite world to this one, mass consciousness holds a belief that creates the world to include the virtues you are asking about. So in essence, both you and the staunch defenders of this world’s seeming imbalance are right. Everyone is always right, because not everyone’s consciousness is focused on the same thing.

      I have taken the yin/yang example and limited it to two polar opposite worlds to help highlight the principle – now expand this to mean that with every reality, be the nuances ever so small, there has to be the polar opposite world. Trying to change the world, is equal to trying to find a way to project the consciousness into one already created, since we hold visions of what “better” would entail. It is best done by letting the framework of this world be what it may (accept it and not fight it) and then focus on the values that you prefer. In essence, there’s more than one earth with you on it and the focus you can hold dictates the lens through which you experience yourself. If your focus would be steadfast on the good things you desire and allowed all others to have whatever focus they choose (it is a choice, even if they don’t think it is), you would find your consciousness shifting from one world-you to the next until you experienced it in a way that is more pleasing to you (that would then be rapture?). It then follows that “rapture” is an inside job.
      . As with all philosophical theories, it’s about coming up with new ideas instead of rehashing the old. Now onward (for me at least) to walk my talk. πŸ™‚
