Continuing the spiritual focus of the week, we now turn to the phenomenal aspect of reality. While we often project patterns on to our world, it is just as true that the universe is projecting its patterns on us, each according to their "Ring Pass Not" and their aptitude for embracing a greater Way, Truth, and Life/Light.
I last gave you this over two years ago. Due to Neptune in Pisces, we're in a critical period of the "dream time," where our self-conscious mind and the imagery of our subconscious mind is conditioning our long term future. This is the time to be clear about our expectations and assumptions and practice focusing our intention to bring forth a better Way, Truth, and Light in our life.
It has been stated "we create our own reality." That's not entirely true, since we all are within a much larger field of life that we did not create. There are greater and lesser creations in each life, each according to the nature of the creator.
The Sun has Its creations, the Earth has her creations, humanity has its creations, and we have our creations. All creation leads to an expressed phenomenon.
That is why as we learn to concentrate in order to get clearer about what we want to create, it takes shape in our lives in some way. This is true whether the creation is productive or destructive, life-affirming or disintegrative. Concentration on the creation leads to manifestation.
All things that come forth have some degree of "being true" for us, or they could not exist in our hologram. However, while some of what we create brings fulfillment and are steps to even higher realizations, some of what we create has no lasting purpose in our lives. Our push and pull around these is grist for the mill of Soul, and separates kernels of enduring truth for us from the husks of outworn experience.
Many things are true for us across many lifetimes. This teaches us adaptability and flexibility, and brings balance to our view. Through viewing what has been true, what seems to be true, and what we would like to be true, we ultimately find many facets of our unique "Jewel of Truth."
We all yearn to know we are fully living our highest awareness, consciously understanding and living our ultimate "Truth of Being." Whether on dense or subtle levels, all beings yearn to know they are living what they believe to be true. This drives our imagery, and through the imagery we hold to be true, the phenomena of our existence comes forth in various forms.
We can manifest many potentials, but those which will not help us to enduring truths will pass fairly quickly, whether they frustrate us, bore us, or fulfill us in lesser ways. Only those potentials that open doors of higher perception will bring us the sense of adventure into an unknown Truth. And if we search for those potentials, they will manifest new forms of phenomena in our lives in the future.
All dreaming at some point must be followed by action, if the dream is to be made manifest in form. The type of action is up to us, as well as how and when we must do it. That moment always requires some courage and a "leap of faith" into the unknown future, since by doing the action we know we set things into motion in major (and often unexpected!) ways.
One of the dilemmas of being human is that usually we cannot know the full implications of the actions we do before the fact, since part of the human condition is to have imperfect knowledge based on perceptions limited by the 5 senses and the mind. So though there are times when we know we must make a "leap of faith" into the future, it's equally important to have prepared the ground the best we could before that critical point in time.
How we prepare the ground has a major influence on what will be grown in the garden. How and what we dream prepares what will be made manifest. This works whether the dream is conscious or subconscious. Where these are not in alignment, there is conflict.
Examine what you've been dreaming these past four years, as well as new ways you've been living, since these can show you elements of a greater Truth and better future that have taken on momentum in your life. And be open to a greater understanding, beyond old fears and limitations, and dream the highest and best possible patterns that could present themselves in your life in the future.
If you ask for a revelation, it will surely come, to the extent you REALLY want it. When we open to being inspired by flashes of higher awareness giving us visions of a better future, we then glimpse future patterns of self-unfoldment and fulfillment. Then we can follow that vision into a new life potential. There are many things to grow into, many dances to do, and many possibilities we have not dreamt of before now. Our potential to live a higher "Truth of Being" is limitless.
