Thinking Less Denser in Mind

Written by Mathew Naismith

Physical: Involving the body as distinguished from the mind or spirit

In all honesty, the more of the spirit we become, the more physical we become, sounds really dopy (silly) doesn't it? Consider this though, the less dense one is, the more physical one can become. Considering mass, which we relate to being physical, makes us less physical therefore less physically active. Once you lighten mass, for example your own body weight from a heavy mass body weight, how more active physically do you become? Our mind, body and spirit as whole works the same way. Once you lesson the weight of thinking or change the way we think to a more lighter way of thinking, for example, thinking in less of trauma, negative and positive, hate, etc, the lighter our minds become.

If you look into some of the ancient teachings and narratives of old, a prime example is Hinduism, you will find how a much lighter thinking mind can accomplish physically. Of  course to a denser mind, teachings and narratives like this will simply be of fables and totally disregarded as being a fact of life. Of course this is partly true; it can never be a fact of life in a much denser reality created and controlled by a much denser mind!!      

Still sounds dopy? How physically active do we become when astral travelling? When we become less of mass and more of the spirit, the chances of experiencing astral travel or projection is physically increased, especially when we become more of the astral body, the soul, than what we call the physical body. When we primarily focus on mass in relation to the mind and body, our much lighter astral body is often forgotten or not considered in the first place to exist by a much denser mind. Lighten this psychical mind and astral travelling becomes a natural occurrence. What can also occur is that you will interact a lot more with light minded entities within the rest of existence as well, if you choose or they choose to do so. We will also realise that our mind isn't just of the physical brain. In actually we will become aware that the consciousness of our physical brain comes from a far less denser source of consciousness, from a collective consciousness rather than of individualistic consciousness's.

As I have always been aware that what we call a physical existence isn't really all that physical, simply a denser form primarily focused on our physicality, I have also been aware that spirituality isn't confined or limited to the spirit but to the balance between mind, body and spirit.

The Soul Experience

Written by Mathew Naismith

Yes, as of a human experience there is also a soul experience, it is really wise not to separate the human experience from the soul experience. Actually, it is wise not to separate the human or soul experience from any other experience or motion. In other words it is wise not to separate yourself from the environment as a whole; there should be no exclusions no matter what the ego dictates. 

Soul: The immaterial part of a person; the actuating cause of an individual life

Actuating refers to motion; which means the soul is the motion behind each person, without the soul there is no actuation therefore motion. So what about the rest of existence that is of motion, does everything of motion have a soul? To answer this we must now look at the spirit. 

Spirit: The vital principle or animating force within living things

I actually don't concur with this, that the spirit is just of living things. To me the spirit is of all things, this is the same in that energy is of all things. Spirit = energy which = motion. So what about motionlessness, a state where energy or the spirit within all things is motionless, is not the spirit, therefore energy, apart of a motionless state?

The soul experience, as of the human experience, is simply an experience. The spirit on the other hand isn't an experience but of all of what is as of energy. So no, to answer the first question, not everything has a soul but the soul is still of the spirit. To someone like me, everything is alive. I wrote some time ago about vibrations alive, in that all motion creates vibrations which make all motions alive in one way or another. The ego only comprehends what is alive and what isn't alive in accordance with the egos perception of what is alive and what isn't. It is wise not to listen to the ego which is often bias. Bias of course only creates ignorance, the deliberate unknowingness of something the ego doesn't desire to become aware of, usually in accordance with the souls experiences and human ideologies and isms.

The spirit can be of both motion and motionlessness, there are no limitations to the spirit as of the soul. Yes, soul experiences are indeed infinite in nature, where infinite experiences can be experienced by the soul, however, the soul cannot experience a state of motionlessness for motionlessness is not an experiences. It is simply being or not being, which ever your soul relates to the best.

Now, is this being or not being also of energy therefore spirit? Our egos often perceive that energy has to be of motion to exist therefore motionlessness (just being) is not of the spirit!!

Why do we become more aware or more enlightened as we lesson our motions? It is too obvious that the more of motion or the ego we are not expressive of, the more aware we become. Of course the more motion we express, the less aware be become, this is course includes the soul. This is why this just being or not being, this motionless state, is stated as being of pure awareness. Now if we become more aware the less motion we express, how alive and of energy therefore spirit is this motionless state of just being? When we so-call die, we can have a sense of being more alive, of course if our soul is controlled or primarily of the ego, the soul will have more of a sense of death. A sense of death simply represents the demise of life, a life the soul's ego is attached to, this is why it is wise to be aware of the tricks the ego can play on us, the illusions the ego can create.

My mother so-called died a while back, at no time did my ego mourn her death, even though my ego tried to. My mother was more alive than ever, but only after I helped her out of a dark tunnel. My mother was unable to go on as her life on Earth was still not at ease. My mother was never happy in the way she led her life, so after her bodily demise, my mother had huge regrets. My mother wanted to be forgiven but I didn't do this, I didn't feel I had to for there was nothing to forgive. I said to my mother," It is okay, life is what it is, no more, no less, I have no regrets and neither should you."

What a lot of people forget it is a soul experience, the human experiences dies but life is not about the human experience but the soul experience. You could say that the human experience doesn't matter then as the human experience is simply a vessel for the soul to experience life experiences through. A lot of souls live like this as this is all they know, however, to a soul that is aware, the human experience does matter. Remember, the soul is simply an immaterial part of a person, what we do in life reflects back on the soul in one way or another.

In regards to the soul and the human experience, I am simply humbling myself to the ego, to the human experience of attachments. However, the human ego that is trying to dispel the ego altogether is actually being more of the ego, for only the ego desires to dispel itself so it can no longer humble itself to itself. The egoless self has no desire or need to dispel the ego in any sense; the ego is what it is, no more, no less. To comprehend this you must look at this from a soul perspective, not a human perspective. It is primarily a soul experience, the human experience is simply a vessel for the soul to experience motion (life) through. Humanly, think very carefully what you are conditioning your soul to and yes, the way you lead your life does matter to the soul. Remember, the soul is simply an immaterial part of you, what you materially do reflects back on the soul, make no mistake about it. I suppose to really comprehend this, you must humanly experience some kind of after life experience or at least feel or know there to be a lot more to life than material life.

Soul Experience of Open Mindedness

Written by Mathew Naismith

We are simply born with an open mind, all else is a condition of the mind by our environment to think one way or another. I have allowed my step daughter to be and think as she likes, she is now a self-proclaimed atheist. At no point has my wife or I tried to influence her to be and think as we are. I started off my life in an atheistic environment, I am now a............what ever. I am a what ever simply because of the extent of my open mindedness.
We are born with an open mind, this means we are neither a believer of disbeliever of anything as all our beliefs and disbeliefs are determined by our environment. Did I disbelieve in God when I was born? No, as I simply had no comprehension of what beliefs and disbelief were until my environment determined what was a belief and what was a disbelief. My atheistic environment soon determined what was a disbelief. This closed mindedness of what to believe and what to disbelieve limited my acceptance of other people and their views, in other words my consciousness was being limited to certain specifics and certain specifics only. Having experienced certain experiences beyond what atheism dogmatically determined to exist, I found myself drifting away from the exceptionally limiting doctrines of atheism.
I have got myself in a lot of trouble being so open minded, I have lost count how many people have been offended by my open mindedness. To give you an idea of my open mindedness, I don't believe we experience various lives; we experience one life while experiencing different experiences from one life experience to another. It's like a stage play where you act in one play, (one life), while acting (experiencing) different scenes or acts. It's as though I am looking at life through the soul perspective instead of the human perspective, there is no separation as in the perception of individual lives lived. It's one life with different scenes or environments to experience life through.          
Looking at life through a soul perspective has conditioned my human mind to not just look at myself as being of a particular colour or culture. I don't see myself as being just of a white Australian. How many people today take offence of another culture pointing out the truths in their own culture? If anyone from another culture was to say how uncivilized we were in Australia in how we treated the Australian Aboriginals. I would agree and not be offended by such truths. How many people today are offended by this kind of truth, especially if it's to do with their own culture? These easily offended people's culture comes first and foremost; now add colour and creed to this. How offensive is it when a white man is offended by a black mans truth about a white man?             
My own environment of not separating one life experience from another, has allowed me to look beyond my own colour, creed and culture. I once interacted with Australian aboriginals that didn't think much of white people, in the end they couldn't believe I was a white Australian. This was because I didn't firstly see myself as a white Australian of a certain colour and creed, I was simply a soul having an experience. How many US citizens would be offended, especially if an Eastern cultured person, pointed out that Australians are war mongers for supporting the US in nearly every conflict the US has started or were involved in? Are we spiritual if we continually put our own colour, creed and culture before the soul experience? In truth, I am a white Australian at present, should this negate my entire life lived by my soul? To a lot of people who think they are spiritual it often does. If you are easily offended by another person from another culture telling the truth about your own culture, it's likely you are not truly spiritual as being spiritual relates to being primarily of the soul and/or spirit. If you put your present human self in anyway before the spirit or soul, you are simply not spiritual. I have lost count how many self-proclaimed spiritual people have been offended by the truth I tell, either about my own culture or someone else's culture. Numerous Western spiritual people were offended by my research and writings on the Eastern and Western mind, and I am of a Western culture and white!! Look at it this way, how many new age spiritual people are offended by a simple word or phrase that they have judged to be negative or toxic?
How often is the self put before the soul or spirit in a lot of new age spirituality? It's most often about how good I humanly feel, not how good I spiritually feel. A lot of relationships work like this. At first they please each other and make each other feel good until the momentum of making each other feel good all the time diminishes. What do a lot of new age spiritual people do? Try expressing anything they have judged as being negative. You are most often instantly disposed of because this so-called negative doesn't feed their egos and makes them feel good all the time. I did not enter in a relationship with my wife and expect her to make me feel good all the time or even half the time, I certainly don't expect or demand this from life itself.
My relationship with life itself, or if you like with God, Shiva, Allah, Gaia and so on, is not built upon expecting or demanding that life should always be about making me feel good or even positive. Look around you at present, see what expecting or demanding that life makes us feel good all the time is doing. Life itself isn't about feeling good, it's simply about an experience just like the experience I have with my wife, where there are no expectations or demands that we make each other feel good all the time. Today, most ideologies and isms are being misused and abused in this way to simply feed an ever hungry ego in control. This is what I call abuse of energy.
Considering the following information, it's amazing how often I go way outside my comfort zone to experience other people's experiences. At times this makes me feel good, at other times it doesn't make me feel good but life experiences isn't, to me, about feeling good, it's about a soul or spiritual experience. To realise this, one must look through the eyes of the soul or spirit, not through a controlling ego that demands to feel good all the time. What often occurs when the ego in control is fed something that doesn't make it feel good? It's usually labeled negative or toxic!!                    
Children are born Open-Minded. It’s Vital we don’t Teach them Otherwise.

Extract: Open-mindedness is receptiveness to new ideas. Open-mindedness relates to the way in which people approach the views and knowledge of others, and "incorporate the beliefs that others should be free to express their views and that the value of others’ knowledge should be recognized."[1][2] "An open-minded person characteristically moves beyond or temporarily sets aside his own doxastic commitments in order to give a fair and impartial hearing to the intellectual opposition."[3]Another closely related definition sees open-mindedness as the "willingness to take a novel viewpoint seriously."[4]
According to Wayne Riggs, open-mindedness springs from an awareness of the inherent fallibility of one's beliefs; hence, open-minded individuals are more inclined to listen to, and seriously consider, alternative viewpoints.

6 Keys to an Open Mind

1. Fight the urge to react in anger when you hear differing opinions
2. Avoid closing yourself off
3. Place yourself out of your comfort zone
4. stay social and make new friends
5. Don't be afraid to ask questions
6. Avoid speculation

The Spirit of the Soul

Written by Mathew Naismith

Spirit, soul: I’m in a conversation at the moment  discussing the soul, in many people eyes, the soul cannot accrue fixations brought about by mortal existences even though the soul is about mortal and immortal existences. This means a soul that is aware of it’s mortal existence is also aware of it’s immortal existence, this is until a soul becomes fixated to mortal existences.  I should point out that mortal existence relates to physical existences.

Mortal existence = physicality + fixations + soul
Immortal = non-physicality + no fixations  + spirit

Soul = ego + fixations + individual aspect of self
Spirit = egoless + no fixations + collective aspect of self

The spirit is also defined as God’s consciousness, divine consciousness, the source and divine light etc. The spirit is quite different to the soul, the soul can be influenced by mortal existence but the spirit can’t be because it’s not of mortal existence, therefore, the spirit is not influenced by mortal fixations unlike the soul. The following response I gave in this conversation will hopefully explain this more. 

The ego cannot exist without the soul but the soul can exist without the ego, the soul has therefore created the ego. A soul without an ego is not tricked in expressing the ego, however, a soul that is fixated to mortal existence, can be tricked in expressing the ego at the soul level.

OK, what is a non-physical entity with evil intent? It’s a soul with evil intent that is expressing ego traits, it’s not an ego trait expressing a soul. 

Through fixations to mortal existence, the soul can indeed be tricked in just expressing these egoistic expressions. How do you think chaotic realities like this one are created? Only through souls that are being tricked can this occur, I’ve actually witnessed this first hand. 

Isn’t it also egotistic to desire the soul to be free of these fixations? The only part of ourselves that is truly free of these fixations is our spirit or what I call the souls core, this is due to the spirit only being of immortal existence. The soul is not just of immortal existence, it’s also of mortal existence and is therefore prone to mortal fixations.  

Does it really matter if we have a different perspective in relation to the soul? It does, if we think the soul can’t accrue fixations and express ego traits, we will never amend our ways at the human level, this means we will keep creating a chaotic existence. There is of course nothing wrong in continuing in creating a chaotic existence, this is unless we are serious about changing our reality to something more constructive. It would seem we are not serious, if we were, we would automatically become aware of our souls fixations to mortal existences, this is unless our souls are totally fixated to mortal existences. This would of course seem to be the case which is fine unless we are truly serious about changing our ways and the reality we are experiencing.

When we pass on, what goes on to maybe live another life?  It’s not our human self that is for sure so it must be our soul. Now the soul can accrue bad karma while experiencing a physical life, is not this bad karma  denoting that the soul itself was influenced by mortal existences?  

Focus: There is a very good reason why so many people are automatically focusing on this God’s conciseness, divine consciousness, the source or divine light,  it’s because this consciousness can’t be influenced by mortal existences. We are inadvertently bypassing our soul and focusing on consciousness itself, a consciousness that is immortal in every sense of the word.  You could say the people, who are focusing on this consciousness, are focused on this consciousness to defuse where these souls are at, I don’t think this would be far from the truth.  We have seemingly automatically focused on this immortal consciousness to counteract what various souls are expressing, you could say we are healing these souls. 

Become aware of the soul but focus on the spirit, I think most spiritual teachings in the past made us aware of this for a very good reason too, I think it’s was done  to defuse what the soul was expressing, an existence primarily  expressive of mortal existences instead of also expressing the immortal self.  Once again, balance is the key, a balance of mortal and immortal expressions.

The following was a follow up reply I posted on this conversation to do with the difference between the soul and the spirit. Spirit guides were also mentioned in this conversation, it’s actually ironical we call our guides spirit guides as I will show. 

There is a difference between a soul and a spirit I believe, the soul can be of mortal and immortal worlds where the spirit is only of the immortal world, it's what we call God’s conciseness, divine consciousness, the source or divine light etc. This consciousness can never be influenced by mortal expressions but the soul can. 

In this case, spirit guides is an interesting description to use , does it refer to souls that are well connected to their spirit? Most probably, we can however be guided by souls that aren’t connected to their spirit as well, so a true spirit guide isn’t controlled by the ego in my mind. 

I should also mention, the soul denotes the individual aspect of oneself and the spirit denotes the collective. The spirit is about oneness where the soul is about individualism/dualism, this is why the spirit can never be influenced by mortal existences and the soul can.

Soul = the individual aspect of self

Spirit = the collective aspect of self

Going Beyond the Souls Perceptions

Written by Mathew Naismith

The soul first of all represents the expressions of consciousness itself, however,  each soul only expresses a certain expressive function of consciousness, this is why consciousness itself is represented by individuals parts of itself interacting with itself. Physical worlds are a good example of this individuality, no form within these worlds are exactly alike as they all only represent a portion of what consciousness is as a whole.

The spirit on the other hand is representative of the spirit of consciousness itself, this means the spirit is a connection between the soul and this consciousness. You could look at it in this way, this spirit is like the silver cord that is attached between your body and soul when astral travelling, this silver cord basically represents the spirit of your humans self which keeps you connected to your soul. This is the same with consciousness itself and our soul, our souls have basically gone on an astral trip but our spirit, like the silver cord connecting us between our body and soul while astral travelling, keeps us attached to consciousness itself. As the silver cord in astral travelling represents our human spirit, so is the spirit between consciousness itself and the soul.

This basically means any connection, either it be between your human self and the soul OR the soul and consciousness itself,  represents the spirit either it be the human spirit or the spirit of consciousness itself. This means the silver cord that attaches us to our bodies, while astral travelling, is the human spirit and the connection between consciousness itself and the soul is the spirit of consciousness itself. Religion (spirituality) has always tried to stay aware of this connection between consciousness itself and the soul and the human self, I suppose that’s what’s spirituality is about, this connection in particular.

Consciousness itself = the spirit of consciousness + soul + human spirit + humans

              Consciousness        spirit of consciousness            soul             Human spirit            Human self 

The souls awareness and perception is governed by actual experiences of the said soul, in other words the more ways  a soul has been  expressive of consciousness itself, the more aware the soul will be of this consciousness. In turn, this awareness allows the soul to become more perceptive of consciousness as a whole as opposed to being only partially aware of this consciousness.     

The question is now, can we perceive beyond the soul? Would we really want (desire) to do this, why would we want to do this in the first place, really? Why not just allow the soul to go with the flow and express this consciousness as it’s obviously supposed too. 

Then why astral travel, it’s the same thing, which leads to the human self becoming more aware? The soul allows consciousness itself to become more aware of itself through it’s individual expressions of itself. This is because consciousness itself is unable to express itself without individualising itself, it’s aware of itself but it can’t express this awareness when whole. This is like the more humanly aware we become, the less expressive we are , this is mainly due to being aware of how the ego influences us to be as expressive as it is. We express anger and hurt less, however, you could say we express more love and understanding but love and understanding isn’t an actual expression if expressed without being influenced by the ego in anyway.

Only through the ego can we be so expressive of consciousness itself, anything else  not of the ego is a natural occurrence as there are no intentions, this means only through the ego can we express intentions. True love and understanding takes no intentions as this comes naturally through becoming aware, however, to become aware in the first place, you need to be expressive of consciousness in various ways at the soul and human level. The ego, and even egotism, is worthy because they are a part of the process to becoming aware and naturally loving and understanding. This also means intentions are also a part of the process of becoming aware especially at the soul level.

The soul obviously has an important part to play here, it allows consciousness itself to express itself in various ways, the point is, why are we now becoming more aware of perceiving beyond the souls perceptions if the soul is so important to consciousness itself?

I feel there are two reasons for this awareness, one, we are at a very destructive time in man’s history, we need, as opposed to desire,  to become more aware of who and what we are to save ourselves from ourselves. The second reason has to do with the natural process of things, we are at the stage of naturally becoming  aware of beyond  our human and souls perceptions. You could say this would mean we are no longer going to be able to be as expressive of consciousness itself but that’s not entirely true. Becoming more aware and perceiving beyond the souls perception is also a part of this consciousness’s expressions, it’s all a part of the process. Yes, once this process has run it’s course, we will no longer be a part of expressing this consciousness, we will no longer need a soul in other words, however!!

You actually at the soul level have a choice here to either go on being expressive of conscious or not, many people today who are aware of perceiving beyond the soul now have this choice.

How could such an aware soul go on expressing consciousness in various ways when the soul is already perceiving beyond the souls perceptions? At this point in the souls awareness, it’s also aware in how to become unaware through physical means again so it can go on being expressive of consciousness itself. It’s like continuing to serve consciousness (God) if you like, by sacrificing your oneness with consciousness, you are still serving consciousness through expressing consciousness itself in various ways.

Why continue to be so expressive of this consciousness, isn’t this consciousness already aware of it’s own consciousness as a whole without  this consciousness being continually being expressive of itself?

Buddha to me is a good example of consciousness itself (God). This consciousness is always being tempted, like Buddha was, until Buddha become enlightened to itself, this means all of what consciousness is, needs to be enlightened to itself through awareness and it’s expressions of this awareness. Everything being expressed is of this one consciousness, there are no other consciousness’s being expressed here. If this one consciousness is still expressing itself through egotism, this consciousness isn’t truly enlightened to itself through it’s expressions of itself.

This consciousness is aware and enlightened until it expresses itself through individual forms, it’s seemingly obviously unable to be expressive of it’s enlightened state through it’s individual expressions.

There however is something else to consider here, isn’t consciousness itself, by being so expressive of itself in various ways, becoming more aware of it’s own expressions through expressing itself in various ways?  Consciousness is basically expressing everything it’s aware it is, in other words every individual expression is an expression of consciousness’s awareness of itself.  If you are able to express your whole self, you are one with yourself. Basically, consciousness itself is showing how of oneness it truly is, it’s totally accepting all of what it is by the way it expresses itself, there is no judgment of what expressions are worthy or unworthy here.  As soon as you judge a worthy or an unworthy, are you one with yourself? 

People like Buddha, for example, realise what they are being tempted by is within them, it’s a part of them, however, the reason one is not tempted to express such temptations is due to being aware of all of what they are, not just what the controlling ego tells them what they are.

The soul is also not all of who we are, it’s but one of numerous expressions of consciousness itself, but collectively, all the souls make up a collective singular consciousness. 

We have always known it’s worth being aware beyond the human and souls perceptions because that is who we are as a whole.
