Spiritual wisdom is a level of consciousness or energy state. Which is created with insight meditation practice
Spiritual wisdom energy state
Light is the Great Revealer
Explains the choice between living in the illumination of soul light; which is in the center or living in the shadows on the outer edges. Symbolically speaking a spiritual aspirant must begin the spiritual journey of moving into deeper awareness; by first stepping upon the wheel.
At first he is an unbalanced human being on the outer edges of the wheel; where it is slower moving. Over time he needs to move closer to the center of the wheel; where the movement is faster and the required balance is greater. The final result is spiritual wisdom; which is an enlightened energy state.
Are you strong enough to stay upon the wheel to its final conclusion? One firm foundation step after another and you will always have the required balance to take the next step closer to the center of the wheel. Once you find yourself standing in the center of the wheel; the pattern of your life becomes effortless as your movement is now straight up.
Why Invokes light
Everyone has the choice to walk in the light or the shadows. WHY is the question, which invokes the light? People ask for light and then reject what the light reveals because they find it to painful to face the lower aspects of their own self. However it should always; be kept in mind; that you also see the higher aspects within as well. The light is a force, which pushes back the darkness revealing what has been living within the shadows.
Age old quote
This leads us to that age-old quote [A man lives in the protection of his own shadow and then complains that the world is a dark place in which to live]. The personality or ego living as a power unto itself likes to live within the shadows. Because the light of soul transforms the power of the personality from a power unto itself into an instrument of soul. Instead of pursuing personality desire with resultant pain and suffering experience; the entity will pursue a path of greatest service to others. This soul directive simply means to move from a selfish to a selfless focus.
All manifestation is energy. It naturally follows that everything in existence is then subject to Natural or energy laws. Everything is physics in the end! An old esoteric law is that Energy Follows Thought. An entity neither strong enough nor willing to face what the light reveals will choose to live within the shadows. These limitations are; commonly called blind spots. The life of the individual is sabotaged; by these behavioral patterns outside conscious awareness or control. Aspects of lower personality when not faced within; are then projected onto another. Only to attach your brother over limitations which have nothing to do with your brother?
Source and solution is within self
When we accept that the source and the solution to every problem is within the self. We are well on the pathway to achieve spiritual wisdom. Then it naturally follows that we need to develop the internal focus in order to find solutions. In this way we are able to see the truth of what is within? Any energy directed at you presents a choice, which is essentially to accept or reject? The healthy choice is to accept the higher unifying energies of love and compassion, which lift and inspire. In addition to reject the lower separating energies of anger, fear or lack of self-worth etc.
Homeopathic principal of Like cures like
In the example of choosing to reject a particular lower personality energy but finding you are unable to do so while becoming irritated in the process is a signpost. This reveals that the same energy is within you and you need to accept responsibility for it. The inability to remain detached from a particular energy, which is also present within; is equally true for all energy whether it be higher or lower. Only a person who has dissolved all personality resistance with Insight Meditation practice to achieve enlightenment has the ability to remain detached in all conditions!
The spiritual purpose of relationship is to transform your own lower personality nature to move into a more universal way of being. This process is supported and enhanced; by the homeopathic principle of like curses like. The wisest approach is to allow this natural process to work for you without resisting in any way. Pain and suffering is your greatest blessing; because when embraced allows you to open up and grow spiritually.
Having successfully identified; the undesirable energy within; we can look for the suitable energy to replace it. The suitable replacement energy is found; by using the behavioral barometer. Love is letting go of fear. Acceptance is letting go of antagonism. Willing is letting go of anger. Genuine interest is letting go of resentment. Enthusiasm is letting go of hostility. Self-assurance is letting go of fear of loss. Equality is letting go of grief and guilt.
Accept responsibility for how you feel
By adopting the soul inspired unifying emotion in place of the personality focused separating emotion you are able to transform yourself. Greater peace is created in your life; by the conscious movement from the reactive to the responsive pattern. The acceptance of responsibility for how you feel is an important essential element, which enables you to practice this path of detached observation of the self. More simply we could say to view; from the mental level without emotional distortion; of what is seen.
In the beginning while the ego is strong, emotional distortion will invariably occur and this needs to be recognized. However you set up the process and over time the intuitive flashes presenting the holistic view do come. What we are describing here is a process of allowing greater soul light to gradually come down over time. The greater the soul light; that is applied; the more illuminated is the mind. The wider the context seen on the mental level; the stronger becomes the mind to prevent emotional distortion; of what is seen by ego!
It is the emotional distortion and manipulation by the ego, which keeps the entity entrapped in part or self, focused consciousness. The following is a good story, which demonstrates this principle. There once was a woman who chose to feel bitter resentment towards her husband and she blamed him for every misfortune, which befell her. Why did she blame him so constantly, relentlessly and fiercely aggressively at times? The answer is so simple because she chose not to be responsible for her life. Her perception is that it is easier to find fault with another rather than face the spoilt selfish child in herself, which is not pleasant. This woman will never move; from the expression of bitterness; until the courage and strength within; is found; to face herself in real terms.
Love is giving what is needed
One day a miracle may happen and she then chooses to accept responsibility for her bitterness because after all she is the only one creating it. When this step is taken a fusion occurs. She will now see her husband with real genuine interest for the first time in her life and seek to give him what he really needs. She will move from selfish to selfless behavior; and the magnitude of her love; which is now expressed; will astound the entire world; and not the least her own husband. This does not mean she spoils him but gives him what he truly needs.
Children will exploit parental weakness for self gain
All little children are excellent psychologists who can recognize weakness in their parents. As children lack maturity their focus naturally and usually tends towards self-interest. They work out very early that when you divide mum and dad you can achieve what you want for yourself more easily. Here is another story because I like you enjoy a good story.
Now there once was a child of three-year-old; who emotionally manipulated her mother to attack dad. This was possible because the child recognized the mental level weakness with the associated emotional focus of the mother. She was so successful in exploiting mum’s self-interest only focus; with her natural tendency to jealousy; that the father left home because he was unable to bring in the spiritual disciplinary framework. Now the child is a young woman of 18 years of age leaving her mother’s home to pursue an independent life. The emotional manipulator pattern of the grandmother, mother and the daughter; has now been passed on for three generations; that we can see.
Will the daughter now an adult pass on once again the family conditioned defect? What did my father say so many years ago? When children leave home as adults; the luxury of blaming mum and dad is lost. We are all our choices? The stage of spiritual evolution for an entity can be clearly and easily seen. The degree in which the nine chakra’s or energy centres of the body are open and functioning in a balanced way reveals the spiritual status of that individual.
Psychic pattern is stored in the physical body
Basically the strong independently functioning ego will distort the physical body downwards into a contracted state. This results in a person with poor spinal alignment with associated health problems. It is easily seen that anyone; who has this body conformation requires personal development. People demonstrating open attitudes with good quality spinal alignment and relative freedom from health issues demonstrate greater spiritual maturity.
Open balanced energy centers create optimum spinal alignment, which gives rise to the balanced functioning of the cerebra-spinal system and associated nervous system. The physical body is an out picturing or hologram of what is present on an inner level. Physical level disability reflects the inner disharmony. Heal Thyself by Doctor Richard Bach explains this phenomena very well. In addition the book [You can heal your life] by Louise Hay is also very useful. Our spirit guides would say [as above so below].
Another important consideration on the pathway to building energy is the understanding and implementation of the Energy Conservation Rule. Every choice we make leads to either a net energy gain or loss. We are all quite literally the sum of all our choices energetically speaking. On the physical level we need to take into our body’s air, food and water as pure as possible.
Purification demonstrates the energy conservation rule
This is also necessary for the thoughts and feelings, which we choose to express through our mental and emotional bodies. Less impurities to process and eliminate means greater energy is retained for healing and repair. The end result of all this is a longer healthier more youthful life. This leads us back to our original choice in life once again, which is to walk in the light or the shadows. Where do you choose to walk? Do you know?
Everyone who practices Insight meditation correctly knows by their own direct personal experience! Even in the early stages during meditation practice; you will feel the energy build up stretching and elongating your spine; only to contact down again; after your hour-long meditation is completed. Over time as you meditate more and more your soul energy flow rate will become more permanently improved. Appropriately you then find that your spine remains in a more permanent alignment state. This will also be reflected; in far better health and clarity of mind of course!
Personality Resistance to Soul Light
The source and the solution to every problem is within the self. Therefore when you see a problem correctly you also see the solution clearly. All that is now required; is the self-discipline to apply it. As energy follows thought; it is the creation; of positive thought forms replacing negative ones; which die through lack of attention, which is the pathway to personal freedom and transformation. This article explains the steps; which need to be taken by the spiritual aspirant; to achieve mastery over his own ego or personality.
The age-old adage of [seek and you shall find] is just as true today as it was in the origins of the past. People ask for light and then reject what the light reveals because it hurts the eyes. We invoke energy and then resist the impact of that energy to move and sweep clean the uncleared personality. Not only is this unwise but it is also very uncomfortable as this results in pain and suffering experience.
Personality resistance is simply resistance to soul light. It should always be kept in mind; that both the higher and the lower aspects of personality; can be seen with the illumination by soul light. Wisely we see everything but our focus is on the higher aspects. This approach allows you the strength and the tenacity to move forward into greater freedom. Soul light weakens the power of the personality, which is the whole reason why the personality resists.
Ego or personality needs to be an instrument of soul
We are all aspiring to have the personality as an instrument of soul and not as a power unto itself. Hence the battle of the spiritual warrior is within. In the origins of time soul comes down into materiality. As part of the process the mental, emotional and physical bodies have been added. These three vehicles of the personality give us the illusion of separation. During this process of becoming inter-meshed with materiality; the personality or ego is strengthened to eventually; become a power unto itself. By definition the personality or ego is a part or self-interest focus with the soul being a whole or selfless focus.
So then how do we solve personality problems? There is only one way and that is by going to the higher perspective or authority. A person bumbles along in life being presented; with various problems in a one form or another. One day he may stop and scratch his head and ask himself the question “why”? This question invokes the light for to understand a problem correctly you need to first see the whole pattern. The personality does not like the question why because it knows intuitively that ego power is reduced with its use.
Personality has an emotional focus
The focus of the personality is to view energy in terms of how it impacts emotionally in particular. The natural result of this approach is to chase after what you like and find appealing. Conversely what you dislike or find unappealing you then attack or run away from. By direct comparison the focus of the soul is to love unconditionally with the drawing together of all the various elements in a unified way. By asking the simple question what is in it for me? reveals whether your intention is personality or soul. If nothing in it for you on any level then you may feel assured that it is a soul quality or aspect.
Nature of energy determined by receiver
To explain this principle we may express our self in the following way. Someone may give you a bucket of manure. The personality approach would be to say I don’t like this so I will tip it over the sender with interest. The soul approach by comparison would be to accept this gift and place the manure around the fruit trees and return a bucket of fruit. In this way one can see that the given energy is abstract and only becomes an insult or a fertilizer determined by the receiver of that energy. Any given energy for which; a use is not found; is simply returned to the sender.
Whether energy is perceived as insulting or fertilizer; reflects the emotional attachment of the receiver to the particular energy in question? Hence the reaction or response is a natural consequence to the focus of the receiver. In this way we can see that the emotional level focus leads to emotional reactions or tantrums and the detached mental level focus leads to more correct responses. It is our focus of perception that we choose to use, which will then create our reality. Everyone creates his or her own reality. Which reality would you prefer to have reactive or responsive?
There does not need to be pain and suffering in spiritual growth; on the pathway to the spiritual wisdom energy state. However pain and discomfort; is often experienced; as the personality resists the changes; with soul light being brought down. Pain and suffering is your greatest blessing because it allows you the opportunity to let go of aspects being held on to, which it is wiser to let go of.
Eventually you learn to move beyond pain, which becomes one of the most liberating experiences anyone can endure. So now we may speak about the psychic barriers. These barriers do no protect but imprison. The personality focus leads to separating experiences as the entity pursues an agenda of self-interest. The world reflects back to you the same energy you are giving off in the very first place. This is commonly called mirroring.
Psychic barrier pattern
Denial of personal responsibility is an inherent aspect in the psychic barrier creation pattern. This is because the limitations not faced within; are then projected onto another. The innocent party is then also attacked; into the bargain for limitations; which have nothing to do with that particular person. It is the person who feels the emotion who is responsible for doing something about it. Blaming another for how you feel is denial of personal responsibility in action.
An entity believes that psychic barriers; are created; for the protection of self. We may ask to protect from what? In this way we can see clearly; that the only thing being protected; are the limitations within. The cold hard truth is that these psychic barriers; are only put up; to keep out your own soul light; from illuminating the lower aspects of your own personality in the first place. Spiritual evolution in most cases is a gradually unfolding process. The intensity of light; is gradually permitted to increase; as the entity becomes stronger and stronger to face what the light reveals.
The platform on which an entity develops a greater awareness of what lies within is by detached observation of the self. To view all manifestation from the detached mental level without an emotional focus distorting perception in a way, which nurtures the ego? In the beginning when the ego is strong; so detached mental level self-observation is not possible and this needs recognition.
However the model needs setting up and utilized by anyone choosing to grow spiritually. This is because when experiencing the pitfalls of life; there is the opportunity to view the soul inspired intuitive flashes, which come down during times of severe emotional impact.
Insight Meditation practice will speed up the process of movement into greater awareness with spiritual wisdom. This is a direct result of facilitating the increased flow of energy from our over soul into our brain consciousness in the earth plane. Quite literally we become our over soul on earth!! Insight meditation practiced correctly will speed up the spiritual evolution of anyone.
More simply we could say we come to see and recognize our own blind spots. Grief in particular is the one emotion; which opens you to the greater reality; allowing light to enter; where before it was not permitted. Firstly one needs to have conscious awareness of a better framework. Then in addition self-discipline is required; to apply the lessons to walk the pathway into lighter states of being. Every spiritual growth step has an aspect of letting go. Discipline from an ego point of view but love from the soul perspective.
In order to become a balanced human being we need to create balance in the first three rays or aspects. The first ray is Will and Power; which is utilized to create movement. Anyone who is seeking solutions to life’s problems or spiritual growth will need an impact of first ray energy to move forward.
After the necessary movement has been achieved. Then we may allow for the use of second ray energy or Love Wisdom. The love wisdom aspect or feeling based orientation. Is regarded; to be the Mystical approach to life. The third ray is Active intelligence. This orientation is the mental level aspect. Often referred to as the Esoteric approach.
Balance first three rays for a balanced human being
In a totally balanced human being it is the active intelligence. Which directs the energy being expressed; through the first two rays or aspects. Very simply put; when movement or a kick is required. We use first ray energy. Conversely when a pat on the back or reward. For well done is required. Second ray energy is indicated. Whether we use first or second ray energy in any given circumstance. It is important to realize that both are love in action when correctly applied. There is no reason why we cannot adopt the love wisdom orientation. In the resting state where nothing; in particular is indicated. Children in particular will respond to this by building in self-esteem and self-confidence.
Love wisdom brings in the most correct knowledge. To be utilized by the active intelligence. Which then determines how will and power will be expressed. Only when two people are both functioning on the framework of personal responsibility can they relate to each other on that soft gentle loving level.
While a person lives a denial of personal responsibility then the use of will and power becomes necessary. It is the love wisdom in tune with the active intelligence. Which then determines whether a sledge-hammer or a tinny hammer. Is required; to restore greater balance.
So in this way we have a framework or model. Which can be used; to view energy. Accordingly we also learn to balance energy on the path of spiritual wisdom. By making the choice to work with. Whatever is presented; without personality resistance; enables us to become creative manipulators or white magicians in life; rather than reactive unconscious victims or black magicians.
An excellent discourse on the subject of Man is creator and destroyer is available on the Peacock website. What would you rather be? Your life is your choice. Spiritual wisdom is an energy state. Created with insight meditation practice!
