    • That’s real good - the two are intertwined and mirrored manifestations of the other-

      You have a mystical sense of ‘things’ —The quote below from Neville Goddard might speak to you-

      Excerpt From: “Your Faith is Your Fortune."

      “In the beginning was the unconditioned awareness of being; and the unconditioned awareness of being became conditioned by imagining itself to be something, and the unconditioned awareness of being became that which it had imagined itself to be; so did creation begin.

      By this law — first conceiving, then becoming that conceived — all things evolve out of No-thing; and without this sequence there is not anything made that is made.

      Before Abraham or the world was — I AM. When all of time shall cease to be — I AM. I AM the formless awareness of being conceiving myself to be man. By my everlasting law of being I am compelled to be and to express all that I believe myself to be.

      I AM the eternal No-thingness containing within my formless self the capacity to be all things. I AM that in which all my conceptions of myself live and move and have their being, and apart from which they are not.

      I dwell within every conception of myself; from this withinness I ever seek to transcend all conceptions of myself. By the very law of my being I transcend my conceptions of myself, only as I believe myself to be that which does transcend.

      I AM the law of being and beside ME there is no law. I AM that I AM.”

    • Yes, the two are intertwined, parts of the whole, in process of becoming.

      And Yes! thank you for sharing this.

      You are correct and insightful to understand my mystical orientation and positionality. The laws of culturally conditioned contructed informs how our forms (personalities, phsycial form, and functionality) take shape.

      "I dwell within every conception of myself; from this withinness I ever seek to transcend all conceptions of myself. By the very law of my being I transcend my conceptions of myself, only as I believe myself to be that which does transcend." As we mature and continue to consciously develop in our later years, we return to the art of unbecoming all that we have allowed to imprint and filter our narratives.

      This is an interesting reminder that I have been reflecting upon this past week, and the daily reminder to use the various systems and institutions (academics, technology, religion) as tools but not allow ourselves to become enmeshed in the stems themselves. Returning to the quesiton of the "immaterial part of our being," we invite ourselves back to unlearning and letting go of the attachments to presuppositions in order to even connect to that possibilities that we can recognize and access the immaterial essence that we are. Remember all the dimensions of the self rooted in the nonduality of raw unconditioned potential .... that's the juice and the place where anything and nothing can be birthed.

    • Glad you liked that- Mystics are outside our lines and willing to be wrong-

      The law of being is impressioning our subconscious mind and from that material reality proceeds- we mimic our Origins and have similar creative abilities.

      I really like Neville Goddard’s way of looking at things- poetic, intuitive and intersting insights.

      You mentioned unconditioned potential, one could argue that exists because in a layer above is unconditional love.

      Human forms of Love are conditional- yet we sense something greater and have long strived to towards things seemingly beyond us.

      Are we making things up? In reality we are making every ‘thing’ up-

      I do ‘believe’ we are more than our material selves. More than we know-

    • As much as I'd love it to be true, I don't think so. I have been thinking for the past few days on and off about this topic. My belief is based on observation, and logic, both of which can be flawed. I think we are biological machines, like a computer with memory and cpu (brain) and peripherals (our body and senses). What we call consciousness cannot evade its own self, we can't see ourselves from the outside, or can we? If that were the case, then yes, enough advanced technology could replicate our "soul" and we could live forever minus the perishable body.

      What I think we are totally missing, is the extreme and very little understood or utilized power of our own subconscious. That is where I think we should focus to grow, and where a true revolution will happen for the human kind.

    • Good points made, there are solid ways of looking at this from varying perspectives- I agree with you on the subconscious mind - how we impression ‘it’ (personally and collectively) determines/influences our lives.
