4.25-30

(4.25) Correct Scientific Thought is the ability to adjust our thought process to the will of the universal; to cooperate with natural law.

This is how we integrate knowledge. Knowledge must be the catalyst for adjusting our behavior to support our ideal state.

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

Forces, ie. magnetism/cause and effect

Methods, ie. inductive reasoning

Combinations, ie. dialogue and activity replacement (pattern interupts)

(4.27) The universal mind is the basic fact of all existence.

(1.5) The universal mind is the life principle of every atom in existence.

(4.28) The cause of all lack, limitation, disease, disharmony and discord are the result of the exact same law. This law acts relentlessly and is continually bringing about conditions in correspondence to the thought that originated or created them.

Thought which does not support nature/universal mind (the principle of life to thrive) is responsible for every ill the human race has been afflicted (3.5).

(4.29) Inspiration is the art of self realization. It is the art of adjusting the individual mind to that of the universal mind; a recognition of the omnipresence of omnipotence.

Self realization is awareness of self as distinct from ego. We must rise above “ego” to recognize it.

Omnipresence is existing everywhere.

Omniscience is unlimited knowledge.

(4.30) What we do depends upon who we are. Who we are depends upon what we think, thus, our quality of thought determines conditions we meet in life.

Our quality of thought can be measured by its support of natural law. Does our thought support the right of all life to thrive equally?

The Origin of the “Devil”

Dogma is born out of the belief that our model of the world is absolute truth.

“One must never forget that the devil enters psychology through reification – the process by which we are beguiled into treating a concept as if it were the real thing.”

On Jung, Anthony Stevens, PG 27,28

The Personal Unconscious / Subconscious is the sum total of all emotions, dreams, memories experienced or developed by an individual to which they are not consciously aware of yet have access to.

Complexes are a series of emotional triggers that develop from within the Personal Unconscious/Subconscious and, as such, may be understood as Patriarchal 2nd Pantheon of various mythical traditions: ie, Olympians (Greece), Æsir (Northern European). These triggers are related in content/qualities of behavior identified with emotional residue from thoughts and/or experiences. When one trigger is activated, all triggers within a given complex may become activated.

The Chhandogya Upanishad speaks to an early understanding of complexes: “The subtle impressions of the past are stored in the unconscious mind and lie dormant there. Unless something awakens them, they have no power to affect either your determination or your conscious mind.” 

The Collective Unconscious / Universal is the is the sum total of all emotions, dreams, memories experienced or developed by our species to which the individual may not be consciously aware of, yet have access to.

Archetypes are a series of (64) universal behavior blueprints that have developed in the biological evolution of Consciousness. They have developed from within the Collective Unconscious/Universal, and as such, may be understood as Matriarchal 1st Pantheon of various mythical traditions: ie, Titans (Greece), Vanir (Northern European)

Archetypes are not responsible for the creation of complexes–which are a result of conscious experience–though an archetype may become a symbol for the complex to represent itself.

Ego interprets experience for Self. Self creates experience for ego to interpret. In this way, nature has developed consciousness to experience itself.

“Contemplation prevents the unconscious mind from controlling the conscious mind, but it is your sankalpa shakti (the power of determination) that makes contemplation effective. It is more powerful than the unconscious mind.” ~ Chhandogya Upanisha, The Himalayan Masters: A Living Tradition, Pandit Tigunait, (Location 387, Kindle)

Becoming “conscious” of your experience of consciousness is enlightenment/self realization. To achieve this, we must detach ourselves from having identity reactions to experience, as identity reinforces our commitment to superficial reality, ie. that which will pass away/has been created.

Because all we experience has been created, it is temporal. The enlightened person dwells on that which will not pass away. And realizing that each individual possess a Self–which is an individualization of that which will never pass away/Brahman–any attachments we have towards the vessel (physical form) of the essence (spirit/soul)are redundant. Instead, the enlightened focus on the essence within the vessel.
