Wherein does Consciousness Manifest???
I have been reading a Book called “The Temple of Man” by R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz. It is indeed a tome that could occupy my mentality for the rest of my life. I am now 65 and have read many books at this point in my life. I have a large library in my home and I give books to my family every chance I get just to clean out the various slots that I seem to fill with my frequent trips to the bookstore to the chagrin of my wife. Of course, I have need of most of these books because my brain is in each and every one of them and I seek to become more conscious of my life via the knowledge garnered from them.
Lately I have been awakening at around 3:00 A. M. every morning going into the kitchen where silence is maintained since it is the further away from those sleeping. I am stuck on page 28 of his book, even though I have read almost a quarter of the two volumes each in excess of 500 pages of small type ensconced in a large 9 x12 inch format. Whew! It is a beast of a work for any human being. Still I go to those same pages and read them over and over.
I am hung up on this: “Nothing in the Universe that is perceptible is so of itself.” That is, nothing that exists and can perceive that existence had anything to do with creating itself other than the amplification of consciousness. Only the consciousness factor of being able to mentally compare or utilize contrasting issues of perception is usually present so that amplification of physical and mental assets can be accomplished. At times while deeply immersing myself in all the deepness of Lubicz’s material I feel I can grasp a root of a knowledge that is far and beyond the scope of human ability. It is almost euphoric for a few fleeting seconds and then it slips away with some stimuli from the real world interrupting my train of thought. I fear that my age is one thing that creeps into my realization of this grand deepness before me and I will never attain the levels I desire with this study.
When I was young, I went to nature (at the old lake) on a day when I was somewhat introspective and felt deep. I guess I was about 18 and about to graduate from high school. I sat looking up at a beautiful sunset and began to wonder about existence. I thought back to when I was five standing on the door of our old storm cellar at the old Rowena farm and looking up to see God. I will never forget the feeling I had in that ecstatic moment to see the vastness of his being encompassing the totality of the sky. I became aware then. Later at 18, I heard these words while contemplating my future worth on this Earth, "You are the Catalyst." I did not know exactly what a catalyst was then, but I went home and looked it up and realized that effort and suffering was necessary to gaining deeper knowledge. Now, I have had a full and highly eventful life. My former students keep in touch with me to some degree. I have the love and respect of an old scholar and my colleagues keep in touch via email. Still, I push ever forward to the back door of life to do all I can to become worthy and have worth to offer. Reading the Temple of Man by Lubicz is the hardest book I have ever read besides Hegel. I will continue to push the envelope right out of that back door and into a new realm that I seek with gusto.
Lately I have come to a newness of reasoning. Lubicz calls it the Pharaonic method of seeing life. I now realize that I have been seeing existence from a self-oriented perspective rather than the viewing of being from a spiritual view. This new way of looking at life is from the Heart. Of course Lubicz takes the whole book to explain what I think I can say in a few words. I know, it is not possible. Yet, just to realize that there is an anterior means of seeing existence from a corresponding point of view from the materialistic mindset gives me hope.
Prior to reading Lubicz’s work I had the feeling that there was more — mostly reinforced by my reading of the Bible and other ancient traditions (see Vedics). Now my mind feels almost as it did when I first went off to college some 45 years ago. There is so much to learn and so little time. I wish I could establish a university for old guys and gals like me that used only a few numbers of books such as Manly P. Halls “Secret Teachings of All Ages” and “The Temple of Man.” I would love to attend such a school where discussion could fly across the universe into new vistas of wisdom. For now, I am still in awe of just being here in this place called life.
I usually go back to bed to sleep a few more minutes before finally getting up and making coffee for my wife and myself. I find myself thinking over the repercussions of inculcating the new knowledge set off by Lubicz’s stimuli. This morning I had a revelation of what this is all about. I believe I have the Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit somehow localized within my being as a triangulation for existence here. This Triad of essences focuses my “cursor” on reality within my lens on life — my brain which is necessary for this physical form I utilize here. I am a spirit using this body as a vehicle for motivation in this physical state. I am mind that is holographically localized in this environment. Lubicz calls it Mediety. He says, “Man, considered as a natural finality is not in opposition to the Universe, he is the “mediety” of the “inverse elements” that are the universal and the particular. In him, opposites are resolved and canceled; he is the All.”
It is as though we are the localizations of this power that pervades the moiré arena (broadcast of information) of existence. We are focused deity and are at the midpoint between the flux of consciousness that intersects into the form of ego or human bemanship. We are the “cursor” in physical form. In my dreams built off this study, I can almost make out a plasmatic totality that waxes and wanes in this realm of Time/Space to a point of focusing in a creative means of creating all of this for the development of higher and higher consciousness. This plasmatic totality is somehow part of a knowledge and Reason that needs no explanation due to its being Forever and Always present. It is indeed the Godly elemental and spirit of this expression, which is undulating within itself.
Just as Einstein suggested that we move to the macro viewpoint in order to see more clearly the plan of God -- we move out/up, and dimensionally to amplify the data of all we see from above. Not only do we perceive more territory -- we can focus simultaneously on one object and inculcate all the data relating to its singularity. God's cursor has amplified within the mind's eye of the beholder. As each day passes, event sequences become whole documentaries encompassing associated events into a clear picture of cause and effect to our souls. With each tic of the pico second, data expands geometrically to encompass even more reason to happenstance.
Upon the soulular reference-plane, mapping at exponential speed, is the accumulation of humanity's knowledge and wisdom of itself. The mind is boggled as it strains to decipher massive thought globules that contain dense information about each singular particulate. Lives and their complications flash past our mental cursor-on-existence (brain) and we see the familiarity of our own attempt at the prime objective of being here in Time/space. As we see this euphorically-experienced flash of the Ancient-of-Days templated with the Days of Our Lives, we know something big is about to happen to humanity.
Positive and negative actions swirling through the broadcast of being is evident. What wrongs have been committed against man by man? As wars rage throughout man’s reference maps…we see our destiny unless we change our ways, this experiment will cease to be. Who will step forward and join this burgeoning call for humanity to join in coherency?
As time goes on, I hope to add to this initial expression of amplified consciousness.
