A Mystery of Spirituality and light

Written by Mathew Naismith

Dreams: It is said by many, we live within a dream so does this make our actual dreams something else and are our actual dreams we have when we fall asleep more to do with reality than our awaken state? This of course couldn’t be because a lot of our dreams are too farfetched to be real. What if I still said they are just as real as our awaken state, you would think I would have to be loony to believe this or at least delusional.

In my last post I wrote about light, everything is of the light no matter how dark or destructive it seems to us and what makes it dark and destructive is time which fragments consciousness into different vibratory frequencies which give us different forms of darkness and/or light.  Unlike our awoken state we are capable of anything within our dreams like breathing while under water or walking through fire without getting burnt; surly I couldn’t be saying these things are real because they too are of the light!!

Let’s look at something else. A lot of people today are also saying nothing is actually physical, there is no physicality but they also say it’s all an illusion which I don’t agree on. All it is to me is a different reality. Why do all realties have to assimilate with our perception of reality and if it doesn’t it has to be an illusion? Disregarding if it’s an illusion or not, the physical world we know to be real might not seem to be all it seems to us. If we take into consideration that nothing is actually what it seems either it be in our dreams or physical reality, what is more real and physical, dreams or what we call reality? 

At the moment we have looked at everything being of light and physical realties like this reality are not as physical as first thought, both concepts seem to coincide which each other’s, now let’s look at dreams again. Dreams don’t seem to be as unreal or imaginary as first thought nor do they seem that different to our awaken state of consciousness but are they real? We can’t breathe underwater nor can we walk through fire without being burnt in our awoken state without assistance so it stands to reason we shouldn’t be able to do this in any real reality so dreams have to be noted as being unreal or imaginative!!

What if I now said walking through fire without assistance and not being burnt in any way is as real as walking through the fire and being burnt? Both realities are true only because both take a different perception in what we are aware of at any given time. Do I believe Jesus walked on water and turned water into wine? Yes, for the main reason that everything is created from a light energy source, consciousness itself. We look at fire being what it is because that is what we have been taught to expect of fire, we soon learnt it burns while growing up. Fire, like everything else around us, is created from minute light particles (consciousness) which are very much alive. Fire is produced by the particles of light changing vibratory rate so it will seem hot and burn us if we get too close to the flames. The burning effect of fire is expected so of course it’s going to burn us.  Because we expect this are we just manifesting the effects of the fire and everything else of this reality and if this reality is just a manifestation of our thoughts it must be all an illusion!!

Well it might seem that way. We are talking about an intelligent living conscious source here in these minute particles of light, it’s not something that is in itself delusional, everything it creates is real in one sense or another.  We must remember here, we are also made up of numerous light particles which react to other forms of light particles vibrating at different frequencies. When we walk through a fire in an awaken state we are one form of light particles vibrating at a different frequency to the fire which is made up of different light particles vibrating at different frequencies. This is just one lot of light particles, being us, reacting to another lot of light particles, being the fire. Dreams on the other hand don’t have to be influenced by the same laws of time, the only reason they are is because we imagine ourselves in an awoken state of consciousness while dreaming.  

In our awaken state of consciousness, we see fire instead of light particles but what if we truly believed that fire and everything else was made up of an infinite amount of light particles? We would find ourselves in a matrix of just light particles with no difference in vibratory rate. It’s the vibratory rate of light particles that give it it’s form like with fire & water for instance. Fire would no longer burn and water would no longer drown us because everything would all be within the same matrix. 

These living intelligent light particles want to take form of some kind, they don’t want to just see themselves as one thing but everything they are of which is everything we/they could imagine, this is true awareness and oneness.  This is the main reason I don’t desire to ascend to my original state of being, being just light particles. The more we imagine the more we are at one so in actual fact there is no illusion but the illusion of illusions!!    

Try walking through fire or breathing in water in a dream knowing it doesn’t have to be what it seems, this will reprogram your mind to be more accepting of what everything around us is made of,  minute living intelligent light particles!!

Can or Will all Conscious Energy become Measurable?

Written by Mathew Naismith

This is an interesting exchange between three people including myself on the discussion of atheism & spiritualism, it would seem Eric believes we will never be able to measure ethereal consciousness as I believe we will be able to one day because consciousness is energy & Paul, who is an atheists, doesn’t believe in any of it.  

Note: There is a possibility of adding to this post latter on as the discussion continues about atheism & spirituality on LinkedIn.

Eric L Lundgaard • You are not hearing me yet Paul. Consciousness is not available to Science to study! It never will be and there is no role for Science when something can't be measured or find resolution. When you enjoy this understanding, you will see Science is impossible to explain what I am experience. Oh well, sorry you haven't had your own experiences!

G'day Eric
 I'm not so sure science won't be able to measure consciousness itself or certain aspects of it in the future Eric but of course as always I could be wrong.

At present there is no way however science can only evolve through consciousness connectedness & as science evolves further it will & is realising there is more ways to make deductive analysis than through a narrow minded modes of thought such as logic alone.

As science becomes more connected it will changed quite dramatically like it has in the last hundred years & if you look at it so has the awareness in spirituality, it's all connected. Everything is spiritual & therefore will expand in awareness together I believe but maybe I'm just wishful thinking. If we looked at the middle east for example, when spirituality expanded so did science soon after & when science became second fiddle spirituality took a turn towards fanaticism which of course like the dark ages for Europe stifled any scientific progress.

Becoming more connected to the universal consciousness means further developments in all areas of existence as it's all spiritual, well to me anyway. 

Eric L Lundgaard • Etheric Consciousness does not exist Mathew. It can't be measured or understood. It is part of all of us.

G’day Eric
I have an understanding that consciousness is an energy form & that any energy form can be measured, maybe not now but maybe in the far future if the human species is still around of course!!

I believe any thought you perceive can in fact exist however not in the way we perceive existence to be like for example a thousand years ago we perceived existence quite differently than what we do today. Thought is energy so if you thought of etheric consciousness it exists therefore is energy & can be measured I believe. No one thought that enters our mind isn’t of consciousness, every thought is & has always been, there is nothing new except the experiences of such collective thoughts.    

We as humans can’t fathom ethereal consciousness because we lack the conscious awareness to do so, so of course it’s not going to seem to exist but I believe it does because like I said if you thought of it it exists.

So this would mean a pink donkey with a human head exists? Yes but not in the way we perceive existence to be & of course it doesn’t have to be of a physical nature to exist either. There are soul entities that pretty much live as we do who have no physicality but still exist & in actual fact this is more natural & normal as such than physical existence as we know it.  Is our awareness of physical existence really physical to other existences? I’ve got a funny feeling not as the interpretation of physicality is different from different awareness levels & existences.   

I didn’t know exactly what ethereal consciousness was so I read a little about this from the links below.   

My blessing

We could ask here, what makes something in our awareness of what is physical from consciousness, why don’t we all see & hear a pink donkey when everything we imagine exists?  It takes a collective thought or consciousness to create anything in physical form, individually imagining a pink donkey isn’t going to create such a physical animal as it takes a collective thought to do that. For an example, consumerist materialism is real & was created by a collective consciousness, for without the collective consciousness things like consumerist materialism couldn’t have been created as it would still be an imagination. For another example let’s take war, if we didn’t collectively create war within our imagination war would have never existed. As long as we are imagining war, consumerist materialism & anything else as a collective species they will continue to exist that is why so many are trying to change our modes of thought to love & understanding. If this could ever be accomplished this world will change quite dramatically but we must do it collectively.

People like Jesus & Buddha for example tried to do just this, by influencing the mass or the collective to think & imagine differently they were actually trying to get us to create a wholly new physical existence for ourselves that was far better than what we were going through at the time. A good question to ask here is, “can we be influenced by a few to imagine a particular physical outcome thus physical creation?” This is how wars start & systems of living like consumerist material are created, it’s basically brain washing the mass or the collective to create what a few want. We look at everything as being physically created but it take imagination & thought on mass to create anything physical, without imagination & thought of such images it just can’t possibly be created in physical form.

“Imagination is a far greater tool than we could humanly ever possibly imagine!! “….Love Mathew

Imagination v Logic

Written by Mathew Naismith

Note: I have inserted at the end of this post a further supplements to this post.  

Imagination: Where does the imagination come from? Imagination like the speech & vision centres doesn’t have a centre or a part of the brain that it comes from, no region within the brain controls imagination but imagination is a huge part of our lives which can change somewhat from childhood to adulthood but of course not always. So what’s so special about imagination?  Definition of imagination from Wikipedia:   Imagination, also called the faculty of imagining, is the ability to form new images and sensations that are not perceived through sight, hearing, or other senses. Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems and is fundamental to integrating experience and the learning process. Also: But in reality, without knowledge, imagination cannot be developed.

Now this is interesting, so imagination doesn’t use any of the five senses to exist so how can it exist? Also imagination can’t exist without knowledge so why do children have a much wider range of imagination to adults if they are less knowledgeable, wouldn’t adults have a much wider range of imagination?  Yes they should if it is based on human knowledge alone but it’s not just based on human knowledge I believe otherwise children wouldn’t have much of an imagination period also when we take into account that imagination doesn’t need any of the five senses to exist we must wonder where it comes from. We have also got to wonder why children have a greater range of imagination than adults.  Do we as adults use imagination in a more complex way which is driven by our own personal knowledge? Yes we do however this still doesn’t account to why children are more imaginative. Does logic kill off imagination as we become more knowledgeable? Yes it does & in this process we imagine less because we then have a need to imagine things that make more sense & are more logical so this explains why adults have a far less range of imagination on average compared to children.

So logic kills off imagination but the question still remains why do children have a vaster array of imagination to adults when adults are supposed to be more knowledgeable, they can imagine anything being real? The following should answer this question.

Logic: So as adults we have killed off our childhood imaginations & turned it into logic, so what? Wikipedia as stated previously: “Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems and is fundamental to integrating experience and the learning process”.  We as a species & as individuals are always learning so this is actually saying that the imagination is fundamentally important towards the learning process but we don’t stop learning in adulthood? In actual fact we do, we stop learning through imagination & turn it into just logic, in other words we take on one learning process by replacing imagination with logic alone. Imagination depicts all learning processes but logic is only of the process of logic, one learning process.

Imagination gives us a huge array or possibilities instead of being limited to possibilities of logic alone. A thousand years ago it was totally illogical to think man could ever fly especially in the crafts we have today & in actual fact if you made this public you could have been put to death in saying so in certain counties & provinces as this made no logical sense at the time but we know better now. We must ask a question here, would have flight like many things have been possible without illogical imagination? The answer of course is no so by replacing imagination altogether with logic thought is this going to be more beneficial than letting our imaginations soar? The answer again would have to be no obviously. So in actual fact we could be stifling our conscious awareness by replacing our imagination with logic alone & that is exactly what I think we are doing. By thinking through one thought process as logic instead of letting ourselves soar through unlimited imagination we are in fact stifling our conscious awareness obviously as previously stated that “Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems and is fundamental to integrating experience and the learning process” so we should be asking here what is thinking within the logic process actually stopping us from learning? That is a very good question indeed & one that can’t be answered until we stop thinking in one thought process. Just imagine what we are stopping ourselves from knowing!!

We could say here that scientists aren’t imaginative because they are all about logic but that’s not true. For a scientist to even think of evaluating anything they must first see/imagine an outcome, yes they are still deductively formulating using logical thinking but an imaginative outcome is needed at first for any action to be taken so one must logically imagine an outcome first otherwise what would be the logical purpose of conducting such evaluations in the first place. Successful science is all about a balance of logic & imagination I believe. I also believe the reason why some scientists are more successful than other is the more successful scientists are the more connected to the collective consciousness they are through imagination, they foresee/imagine an outcome prior to completion of any said task. So is this saying consciousness is unlimited imagination? Yes most definitely. 

Consciousness: I’m going to theorise the reason why children have a wider range of imagination from adults is not just because we become logical thinkers but by becoming solely logical thinkers we become detached even more from the collective consciousness & the more logical in thought we are the more detached we become. We have also got to take into consideration here that imagination doesn’t use any of the five senses to exist either & of course the sixth sense also relates to being more connected to the collective consciousness so what does all this mean? This means we are imaginative even before we have the chance of gaining human knowledge but it still takes knowledge to imagine, we can’t possibly imagine without knowledge & this is where the collective consciousness comes into it as it’s a vast array of knowledge far vaster than human knowledge will ever be so no wonder why children have a wider range of imagination to adults, they are more connected. 

This brings us to the question, is that all we imagine real considering it’s all a part of the collective consciousness? Nothing of what we think isn’t unreal within consciousness, in other words yes it’s all real because it’s totally impossible to think of anything that isn’t already a part of the collective consciousness. If it’s of the collective consciousness it has to be real in one way or another & certainly not necessarily of this reality either. A lot of spiritually aware people consider this reality of being an illusion therefore unreal, they are right to a point because it’s not the whole of us only a portion of whom we are however just because it’s only a portion of who we are doesn’t make it unreal or an illusion in my mind.

“Think about this for a moment, try to think of something that isn’t a part of the collective consciousness, let your imagination completely go………….everything you have just imagined is already a part of the collective consciousness whatever you could have imagined”…….Love Mathew

Supplement: The amended supplement below is in relation to a discussion on atheism & spirituality’s which I have inserted here because of its relevance to this post.   

I have just researched & wrote up recently on imagination v logic & found that if we just used logic one couldn’t perceive what the outcome would be until proven to be true through logic which hinders the research however when a scientist like Einstein uses imagination they can imagine what the results could be before they are logically proven which allows for a better outcome. “Knowledge is limited, imagination encircles the world”- Albert Einstein. By using imagination & having faith within their own research which can take years the scientific results are far greater.

Indeed, Einstein himself put it thusly:
There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance.

Max Planck said: “Again and again the imaginary plan on which one attempts to build up order breaks down and then we must try another. This imaginative vision and faith in the ultimate success are indispensable. The pure rationalist has no place here”.

They are talking about intuition which a lot of spiritually aware people also take heed of & the purist rationalist has no place here means it’s not all just based on logic as you like to claim but faith & imagination as well.
