Principles of Light
    #4175062 - 05/14/05 05:06 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

This essay was edited together from postings I made at another board over a period of two years. I think you guys just *might* like this a lot...

http://www.jamesclairlewis.com/pages/metaphysics/light.html

"The Most Infinite & Transcendental separated itself into uncountable tiny parts, which fell into the illusions of separation & darkness. Each of us is God's Dream. Don't let that Dream become a nightmare...."

I really liked this .....
Quote:

It begins with Meditation. Here you learn how to still the mind, so that it will do what you want it to do, rather than what it has already been programed to do.





If I could only get my wife to start meditating. She needs to learn some control over her mind......she has the tendency to freak out over simple shit. (learned that from her mother)


I truly believe that if she were to start meditating, at least weekly, that she would be less likely to get freaked out

Don't be afraid of what lies in your future

The Nature of the Ego [Re: Icelander]

Something to consider when communing with mushrooms...

You and I have some (many) of the same "theories/ideas" of how the world works.

Again I quote....
Quote:

Those of you who are advanced in Spellwork know that the material world is an illusion, because conditions around you can be altered through the use of Magick. Conditions in the material world are not carved in stone, but are the results of what people create through their actions, emotions, thoughts & attitudes. The Illusions of the five senses give people the belief that it is otherwise, that material conditions determine what is possible & what will be. Getting beyond this Illusion is an important first step. What follows is a process of realizing, and getting beyond the illusions of emotions, thoughts & attitudes, through a similar process of insight.




and this......
Quote:

The lower self is the Ego or personality with all of its attachments to the things of the mundane material world. The Soul is that spark of Eternity which experiences the lower planes through the Ego.




again....
Quote:

I like the analogy of the TaxiCab

The taxi is your body. The cabbie is your Ego. Your Real Self is the passenger. The passenger was deliberately vague about the destination. The cabbie has to pay attention to the road conditions, while driving the taxi. And this seems to add a difficulty for the cabbie, when trying to understand what the passenger has to say. Not to mention the fact that the cabbie & the passenger don't actually speak the same language.






You are a very wise person.


:bow:

The Ego does not dissolve into nothingness when one becomes Illuminated, rather it merely releases its control, assumes its proper role in the scheme of things, and gets to experience the great Joy & Serenity of the Divine in all...

Yes indeed! I have contemplated this all on mushrooms. The ego is a necessary tool for navigating the material plane and is a boon when in balance. That's the rub though, balance. :heart: :mushroom2:

Yes, that's the rub, all right. It can appear very tough in the world, and it is the Ego that has to deal with it. Perhaps we should be kind to our Egos, and give them a Massage once in awhile?

And that thought leads me to another one of my essays... (hehehe)

How to give yourself a Massage Treatment
http://www.jamesclairlewis.com/pages/massage/selfmassage.html

OK. That's actually about a physical Massage treatment, but I've found that while using it, that emotional things that I had been holding onto, would come to mind while using that technique. At that point I could release my attachment to those old mental pains, and they would simply go away...
