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!



A Path to Equality

(Equality: the state of being equal, esp. in status, rights, and opportunities.)

There is a video going around the net that emphasizes on strong women and encourages us (women) to be brave in 2014. Upon watching this video, I realized that it felt off to me. Being in a woman’s body myself, I had to wonder why such a video would feel off to me. It’s one-sided. It’s an opinion of a person or group, it’s beautifully compiled, and professionally crafted. All this is allowed of course and there shouldn’t be anything for me to find flawed, yet for me, this one-sided focus on women alone struck a chord within. Questions arose:

How can equality be reached between men and women, if we are still beating the drum of one by the exclusion of the other? How can we ever find that equilibrium if we keep emphasizing one over the other or even insinuating that one may have better attributes than the other or be more amazing?

The simple answer that stood out for me was:  “We cannot reach equality that way.”

It’s a wolf in sheeps clothing to view a video as beautiful and positively conceived as the one I’m talking about. It contains exclusion. I remember preschool and kindergarten days where my daughters were explicitly reminded to focus on inclusion of their peers. A simple lesson that actually comes naturally to the little ones, as they remember their true nature a bit better than we grown ups do.

I hear a big “but” … Yes, we do gravitate to something similar than that which we vibrate as. Yes, we prefer some things/people over others. That’s perfectly natural and should not be tampered with. Yet, in our hearts, our preference does not need to become the holy grail of choices! Let the choice be free, the attractions be natural, but allow for all components, male, female, regardless of skin, hair, eye color, sexual orientation etc etc – to be there on this planet of ours (for it is anyway!). The more choices we have available for our experiences, the greater the fun to let law of attraction sift through them and bring us in contact with exactly those folks who vibrate in our frequency. The precision of this is so uncanny, that any kind of prejudice becomes not even unnecessary, but is rather ridiculous.

Furthermore, in my personal experience, I have recall of many male incarnations of mine – good ones they were! So my own source energy stream has found it fitting to incarnate in both male and female bodies and I can only guess at the ratio, since there’s a fairly long string of lifetimes. Of course there too, law of attraction operates with its precision and brings on the body that fits the ideas and intentions for the lifetime. Of course, preference is still alive and well, but this preference needs to be standing alone and as sovereign as it actually is, for putting down one compared to the other or operating along the same energy stream in the opposite state of glorifying one over the other can only bring one experience – Division.

Division is the opposite state of who we really are and always feels bad to me. Let your emotional feedback decide what it means to you and then, as if you were back in kindergarten, perhaps the lesson of inclusion (allowing all to be part of the whole) makes sense again.
