TTM criss-cross #1

(3.1) The Cerebral Spinal System of nerves is the organ of the conscious mind.

(6.1) Some of the effects that can be produced by electricity are heat, light, power, and music.

(1.11) Well doing is the imperative condition of all well being.

(4.11) Any purpose in life may be achieved by a scientific understanding of the spiritual nature of truth.

(7.11) The degree of harmony we attain is determined by our ability to appropriate what we desire for our growth from each experience.

(2.21) Individuals are measured by the degree of intelligence they manifest.

(5.21) Whenever we become conscious of power it is manifested in the objective world; it is brought forth into tangible expression.

(8.21) Every system of metaphysics depends upon a knowledge of the truth concerning ourselves and the world.

Our senses send information to the brain via the Cerebral Spinal System. In the same way that wires carry messages from devises to the source of electricity. We feel how we act. A scientific understanding is information we have gained through observation. “Appropriate information we have learned” in applying the knowledge we have gained. Our degree of intelligence is is measured by our conscious state. Awareness of knowledge brings the unseen into view. A knowledge of the truth is our awareness of how our thoughts are creating our perceptions of reality, upon which we make decisions that will lead to what conditions next present themselves.

(8.30) The result of an understanding of constructive thinking is a recognition that “god” is a symbol of Universal Mind, which really and truly does live within you and all things are possible and can be demonstrated by anyone with sufficient understanding. 

(5.21) The old regime is trying to cling to the fatalistic doctrine of dive election. The new regime recognizes the divinity of the individual; the democracy of humanity.

(2.30) We receive thought, which is substance in equilibrium and is constantly being differentiated in form by what we think.

(7.20) Insight allows us to understand the value in making application of knowledge we have gained. Many seem to think knowledge applies itself, which is–by no means–true.

(4.20) Wisdom is secured through concentration. It is an unfoldment. It comes from within.

(1.20) A recognition of the omnipotence of spiritual power and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects are necessary for spiritual methods to be used.

(6.10) We are learning the basic methods of constructive thinking. This is allowing us to direct conditions and multiply effects in the objective world.

(3.10) The Universal is the creative principle of the universe.

God” is a mythological representation of each individuals ability to direct their attention toward manifesting ideal conditions. The thoughts of others are like clay that are molded by the story we tell ourselves about what they are thinking. Our story determines how we feel. Applying this information means taking responsibility for your thoughts. Concentration is the ability to direct attention. This generates an omnipotent power because thought is our connection to unlimited creative potential; the creative principle of the Universe. Directing our attention toward manifesting our ideal state is constructive thinking.

 

 

 

TFM Criss-Cross #5

(1.5) The Universal Mind is the life principle of every atom in existence.

(4.5) The secret of thoughts creative power is spiritual activity.

(2.15) Thought is the connecting link between the finite and the infinite.

(7.5) Each repeated action renders the image more accurate than the former.

(8.15) We may take our fate out of the hands of chance by constantly realizing the conditions we desire to see manifested in life.

(3.25) Thought is the seed that results in action; action results in form.

(5.15) This principle destroys superstition, precedent, and conventionality.

(6.25) The Law of Vibration is then brought into operation for the greater good.

All form originates from create potential/Universal Mind. Thought is our direct link to this creative potential. This is spiritual power. Repeated thought makes it easier to visualize. The clearer we visualize, the easier we may feel the conditions we will eventually manifest. Feeling is the key. Feel the conditions you desire. Opportunity, then, presents itself for us to act on.  This principle of cause and effect is observable. because thought corresponds with a rate of vibration and each form (effect) produced will correspond to the rate that created it.

(6.26) A higher rate of vibration governs, modifies, controls, changes, or destroys a lower rate of vibration.

(5.16) These laws have been discovered by a recognition of facts that are unusual, rare, strange, or form the exception.

(3.25) Form depends on the rate of vibration.

(8.26) Thinking is the great business of life.

(7.6) The material for the construction of these mental images is secured by millions of tiny workers; brain cells.

(2.16) The Universal can manifest itself only through the individual.

(4.6) We may acquire the faith, courage, and enthusiasm that results in achievement by a recognition of our spiritual nature.

(1.6) Our ability to think is our ability to act upon the Universal and bring it into existence.

Constructive thought produces a higher rate of vibration. We know this through observation. All form depends on the vibration of spiritual energy (thought). Therefore, thinking, is the most important thing we need to be concerned about. Brain cells working in harmony result in constructive thinking. . A recognition of our spiritual nature empowers imagination. Imagination unlocks creative potential and creates form.

 

Crossover Week #10 (e)

(3.5) The result of the disruption of energy throughout the body is every ill which the human race is afflicted.

(4.5) The secret of thoughts creative power is spiritual activity.

(4.15) The degree of success we achieve is indicated by the degree in which we realize that we can not change the infinite but must cooperate with it.

(3.15) Jesus, Plato, And Swedenborg all advocated this teaching.

(3.25) Thought is the seed that results in action. Action results in form.

(4.25) Constructive thinking is the ability to adjust ourselves to divine and unchanging principles; to cooperate with natural law.

Health is maintained by unrestricted movement of energy throughout our body. Thought is our connection with unlimited creative potential. This makes thought spiritual. Success is determined by our ability to understand that thought is , ultimately, responsible for the movement of energy, within our body and without. All the great masters understood this. Thought is the seed that results in action. Action results in form. Constructive thinking is the ability to adjust our thoughts and behavior to support our ideal state.

(4.26) This is accomplished by securing a perfect understanding of the principle forces, methods, and combinations of mind.

(3.26) Form depends upon the rate of vibration.

(3.16) We are thinking on the plane of the absolute where–having planted a seed–if left undisturbed, will germinate into fruition.

(4.16) The law of attraction rests on vibration which–in turn–rests on love. This is the principle which gives thought its dynamic power.

(4.6) We may acquire the faith, courage, and enthusiasm that results in achievement by a recognition of our spiritual nature.

(3.6) This energy can be controlled and directed by conscious thought.

We may support our ideal state by understanding mind and recognizing that all form is a result of vibration. Thought is vibration. Thought produces cause and effect. This is the only absolute and is a pattern of nature. A recognition of our spiritual nature empowers us unconditionally. Thinking with intention allows us to move energy at will.

1st Key (a)

(1.1) The world without is a reflection of the world within.

(1.11) Well doing is the imperative condition of all well being.

(1.21) The true method of concentration is to become so identified with our object of thought that we are conscious of nothing else.

Our experience of conditions is a result of our predominant mental attitude. We are at peace if we think of and treat others as we would like to be treated. By directing the object of of thoughts towards harmony, we create harmony.

(2.30) The symbol is only the outward form of the spiritual reality within. Therefore, unless we possess the spiritual activity, the form disappears.

(2.20) A recognition of the omnipresence of omnipotence and the desire to become a recipient of its beneficial effects is necessary for spiritual methods to be used.

(1.10) All power comes form within–the universal fountain of supply–the infinite energy of each individual, on outlet.

Spiritual activity within refers to the nature of our thoughts. Our thoughts are omnipresent because each individual derives their creative potential from the same source, or which each individual is an outlet.

 

 

Crossover Week #5 (b)

(2.24) Universal Mind creates form by means of the individual.

(1.24) The nature of our desires must be in harmony with nature’s law.

We may access the creative potential of Universal Mind directing our attention toward a specific desire (not an outcome). If the nature of our thoughts is not in harmony with nature’s law, we will only succeed in creating an illusion state.

(1.23) Spiritual truth is the control factor in this method of thought.

(2.23) Creative power originates in the Universal.

Spiritual truth is a knowledge of the power of thought to access the unlimited creative potential of nature/Universal Mind.

(2.22) We may control other forms of intelligence by a recognition of Self as an individualization of Universal intelligence.

(1.22) Invisible forces are, then, set in motion to bring about the desired result.

Self is the inner “voice” or guide of intuition that may be recognized as being set apart from ego. Invisible forces are the forces that evolution of nature.

(1.21) The true method of concentration is to become so identified with the object of our thought that we are conscious of nothing else.

(2.21) Individuals are measured by the degree of intelligence they manifest.

Concentration is the ability to quiet ruminating mind so that out attention can be directed toward our desired ideal. Intelligence is a spectrum and may be understood/measured as the degree to which we can eliminate unwanted internal dialogues.

(2.20) Thought will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation because thought is a product of the spiritual man and spirit is the creative principle of the universe.

(1.20) A recognition of the omnipotence of spiritual power and a desire to be a recipient of its beneficial effects is necessary for spiritual methods to be used.

Individuals have the ability to act upon the unlimited creative potential of nature by replacing unsupportive internal dialogues with supportive ones. This begins by recognizing subconscious thoughts and habits, then replacing unsupportive ones with ones that we support our ideal state.

(1.19) The advantage of spiritual methods is they are always available.

(2.19) A conscious recognition of the law of attraction with the intention of bringing it into existence for a definite purpose is necessary to bring this law into operation.

Spiritual methods” may be understood as the process of replacing unsupportive thoughts with supportive ones. When this happens, we will become aware that our new thoughts are attracting new opportunities into our life as a result of a change in our perception of conditions.

 

The Means of Existence #1

All power comes from within (1.10). Our ability to think is our ability to access unlimited power (1.20). Creative potential (universal) is the positive side of the battery of life, the individual is the negative, and thought forms the circuit (2.7). Thought is creative energy and will automatically correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation (2.10). Thought is a cause, conditions are an effect (1.7)

All form is created by intelligence and contains the same intelligence (2.21). Once we recognize that all we experience (form) and all events within experience (1.27), share a degree of this same intelligence (2.22), a knowledge of this truth allows us to co-create with the life principle of “every atom in existence.” (1.5) The interaction between our will and this life principle produces cause and effect (1.7). A conscious awareness of this knowledge allows us to plan courageously and execute fearlessly (2.5). We plan by thinking. Thinking is the cause. Conditions within experience are unique to our perception. Perception develops by thinking (1.18)

Concentration (1.20) in harmony with the greatest good to all life (2.7) is key to securing our desires (1.7)

6.24-26~ The Law Of Vibration

(6.24) Thought is spiritual and therefore creative and correlates with it’s object and brings it into manifestation.

We’ve all heard the familiar saying, “Be careful what you wish for.” Typically, the “moral” communicated in this saying is that if we our wishes were to be granted, they would not solve our problems. While this is true, there is much more to this wise saying.

There was once a young man who was very depressed because he was smitten with a local women whose family had arranged for her to marry his best friend. He wandered into the surrounding hills and was prepared to throw himself into the ravine when he came across a guru who was deep in meditation. As the young man cared nothing for his life, he thought nothing of interrupting the guru. 

“Why does the universe conspire against me?” the young man asked.

The guru continued meditating, and the young man continued to ask the guru, again and again. he began kicking dust at the guru and shouting his question. 

“You think the universe conspires against you because it does not do what you want? Foolish man. Your wish has been granted. Go and leave me in peace.”

The young man was ecstatic and returned to the village feeling as though his life had been given back to him. As he entered the village, there was great wailing and mourning. As it turns out, a lion had killed his best friend while he was hunting. Now the young man was free to marry the object of his desire.  He hadn’t wanted his friend to die, though. That was unfortunate, but he had his wish.

After the marriage, life grew very complicated. His new wife did not fit in very well with his family, nor he with hers. Their first three children died in childbirth and eventually his wife cheated on him. 

In less than five years, the young man was back in the hills, prepared to throw himself in the ravine when he spotted the old guru, still in meditation.

He approached the old man.

“Why has the universe conspired against me?’ he asked.

This time, the old man guru spoke without hesitation, “The universe had a plan. You didn’t like it, so it granted your wish, and you still don’t like it.  As long as you consider a conspiracy anything you do not desire, you will always be miserable.”

(2.20) Thought will correlate with its object and bring it into manifestation because thought is a product of the spiritual man and spirit is the creative principle of the universe. 

(6.25) The Law of Vibration is the Natural law brought into operation by this activity.

(4.17) …All natural laws are invincible, unchangeable, and act with mathematical certitude – without deviation or variation.

(6.26) A higher rate of vibration governs, controls, changes or destroys a lower rate of vibration.

Higher means harder. The atoms that vibrate to form the table that keep your computer from falling are vibrating very fast. The atoms in paper that allow you to tear it in two are vibrating very slow. If you want to put you hand through a desk as easily as you rip the paper, you need to develop a higher rate of vibration that the atoms holding together the table.

The ability to concentrate is facilitated by rapid vibration. When you are watching TV otherwise susceptible to hypnotism, your mind is vibrating slowly – thoughts are scattered and you are easily led around by whatever catches your attention from moment to moment.

5.24.25.30~ Democracy Inheritance

(5.24) We may connect with Omniscience by our ability to think, which is our ability to act upon Universal Energy, and what we think is produced or created in the objective world.

Omniscience is unlimited power.

(6.12) All motion, light, heat, and color, have their origin in Universal Energy, which is one form of Universal Mind. 

All the properties of the physical (objective) world are perceivable to ego through our senses. You may consider the senses the instrument of ego, as the senses facilitate our experience of experience. Universal Energy relates to objects in the object-ive world, while Universal Mind refers to non duality, “the void,” or mind at rest. Universal Energy is the result of Self observing Self/nature observing nature.

(5.25) The result of this discovery is nothing less than marvelous. It opens unprecedented and limitless opportunity.

(8.24) The Universal Mind–in which we live and move and have our being–is one and indivisible. This makes it just as possible to help others as it is to help ourselves. 

(6.10) Men are learning the basic methods of constructive thought. This is allowing them to change conditions and multiply effects in the object-ive world.

(5.30) The old regime is trying to cling to the fatalistic doctrine of divine election. The new regime recognizes the divinity of the individual, the democracy of humanity.

Divine election may be understood as appointment or inheritance, be that spiritual, political, or familial.

4.21-26~ Correct Thinking

(4.21) Power depends upon recognition and use.

(4.22) Recognition is consciousness.

Power depends upon consciousness, which may be understood as developing awareness-the process of individuation in the Jungian context. We should avoid judging ourselves for previously not recognizing our lack of awareness, because if we judged ourselves every time we became aware of something new, we would be constantly judging ourselves. Whereas, when we gently congratulate ourselves, we will be more inclined to want to observe our behavior and become more conscious and confident in the process.

(4.23) We become conscious of power by thinking.

When we observe ourselves, we become more Self aware. When we observe ourselves thinking, we become conscious of freewill. Freewill is power. Freewill is our choice to react or respond to the conditions we meet in life. If we do not recognize or utilize this power, our choices are mainly a product of subconscious/habitual tendencies. Conscious awareness allows us to over-ride these tendencies.

(2.5) Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will.  

(4.24) The true business of life facilitated by correct thinking.

(4.25) Correct thinking is the ability to adjust ourselves to divine and unchanging principles; to cooperate with natural law.

(4.26) This is accomplished by securing a perfect understanding of the principle forces, methods, and combinations of mind.

Understanding these principle forces, methods and combinations of kind is at the heart of Vedanta, Jungian Psychology, and The Master Key System.

Ushnika Hedi Go: Maintaining Awareness In Trance States

Ushnika Vijaya is a goddess who “completely purifies all evil destinies / lower realms.” She is a Tibetan incarnation of the Hindu Goddess Durga–a symbol of harmonious Self Realization–in comparison to Kali, who represents the chaos that can result from resisting this process. Predicated upon this duality is the supposition that regardless of our conscious participation, the purpose of life/experience is Self Realization. Jung has named this process of self inquiry/introspection, Individuation: bringing unconscious beliefs and habitual behaviors into conscious and consistent awareness. Our willingness to participate or resist this process will determine if we have a “Durga” pleasant experience or a “Kali” chaotic one. Indifference can be an underlying factor of either extreme and does not necessitate a specific experience. It is our intention that discriminates, in this context.

From the Reticular Activating System to the hippocampus, neurology has shown that behavior is a physiological response to the way our bodies interact with their environment. Lack of sleep, dehydration and the effects of alcohol all inhibit the hippocampus and, thus, our inhibit-ions deteriorate. Because consciousness emerges nearly simultaneously with experience, it is tempting to interpret consciousness as a byproduct of behavior/learning, except that introspection (self inquiry) is not a bundle of learning processes. 

The brain reorganizes information obtained for the senses and makes it linear, by the same function that we recall our dreams as a linear experience regardless of the order they were delivered. 

Addiction/possession is when our desire for gratification is greater that our foreknowledge of the consequences. If we are constantly giving our senses power over mind, we are perpetually returning to the same spot in spite of our theoretical knowledge of progress.

The fields of the mind are cultivated through discipline. Only then can the seeds of awareness grow into a harvest of Self Realization.

Generally, Yang energy wants to solve problems while Yin energy wants to talk about them. Both are valid tools for navigating experience. An emphasis on Yang and we overlook better and/or long term solutions. An emphasis on Yin leads to idle talk and thinking. When utilized simultaneously, we discover the emergence of the most effective tool to navigate experience. We may learn from every situation we encounter by examining our motivation for identifying with experience rather than questioning conditions themselves. This method of self inquiry reaps endless value and meaning. Counterbalanced with a a meditation practice that dissolves thought and facilitates an experience of the absence of Selfis the essence of Ushnika Hedi Go

Experience must always be considered an opportunity to learn. Learning is the basis for every experience. We may use the knowledge we have gained to moderate experience. The more we focus on personal identity, the further we drift away from our awareness of Self. As a result, the personal unconscious in expanding, as mirrored by the expansion of space. 

Ego is the only one having an identity crisis.

A guru was asked, “Is it better to give into desire and try to learn something than be manipulated by desire and learn nothing?”

“It is better to try and learn something from having desires than giving into them.”

Often, the most effective way to diffuse a crisis is to reframe it. 

Ego allows Self to experience itself. The byproduct of this interaction is consciousness

Ego is not the enemy. The illusion/maya that forms our concept of identity is the “enemy.” “Ego death,” in actuality, would render most people incapable of functioning in the world, and the people who speak of “ego death” as though chasing the latest fad, are usually the people who believe there are shortcuts to Self Realization, and avoid repetition. Repetition is one of the most effective ways of learning, especially when repeating something you may not (initially) enjoy, which is essential, because when you engage in activity that is not pleasurable, you begin to hear how many thoughts are surfacing in mind on a consistent basis.

Ego identity rests on the sensory experience.

The sensory experience inebriates consciousness and distinguishes ego identity.

Our greatest advantage to maintaining the mind-body relationship is restoration of the Ego|Self axis.

senses graph.jpg

While awareness of the senses is both easy and pleasurable, awareness of Self requires discipline and introspection, reinforcing the dualistic nature of creation, from the psyche to the cosmos. Even language is structured to reinforce our dependency on opposites–what was, wasn’t. You can do or not do. Something can be done or undone. 

All experience is, to some degree, a state of trance. Between hedonism and monasticism is Ushnika Hedi Go, Maintaining Awareness in Trance States.
