  1. Just moments ago I threw out all my previously held beliefs about this concept or idea called the subconscious or unconscious mind. I admitted and allowed all my beliefs, feelings, thoughts, programming - everything on the subject, then I accepted them, warmly embracing each one as if they were house guests who had stopped by for a visit and provided interesting conversation, but now it was time for them to go home. I opened my arms, releasing them, letting them go, to work themselves out. I feel so much freer, lighter now. If following your emotional guidance system, as Abraham teaches, is the way to go, then mine is telling me this is the right move. In the material I read as I studied self-hypnosis last year I was taught that the conscious mind is like the tip of the iceberg with the subconscious aspect being the greater part below. That somewhere in the subconscious mind is all your beliefs and programming. Self-hypnosis became a way to access these normally hard to reach areas of myself. But as I look back on these teachings tonight I see that they have broken a new sort of golden rule of mine: I choose to invest my energy only in those things which empower me! To my mind anything that takes away my power is attempting to coerce or control me in some way. It turns out I had consigned my unwanted beliefs and programming to the "dark forest" (as Seth calls in in, "The Nature of Personal Reality") of my subconscious mind. In other words, I had no control over what the authority figures of my past, including my parents, programmed into me. I had no choice in the beliefs I adopted as a child. I was coerced, forced or herded to believe certain things and think a certain way. I am powerless, I am a victim of my circumstances, there was nothing I could do, I was at the mercy of others bigger and more powerful than me, I have no control over my life, everything I am is decided already by fate, destiny, genetics or karma. When you adopt a belief in the subconscious or unconscious mind, these others are innate within it. I realized that I always had more success with visualization, and what is that but a conscious way to train my thinking? It is how I worked through depression and anger. I can't say with any certainty that I had any success at all with self-hypnosis. I think there is a reason I can hypnotize myself. Maybe I should use it, with visualizations, to engage the conscious mind at a deeper level. I don't know. I have decided to accept Seth's teachings as true, or a direct pointing to the Truth. Releasing and letting go of my previous baggage about the subconscious or unconscious mind allows me to throw myself completely into Seth's teachings. That is the course of action I choose to take right now. I find Seth's and Abraham's teachings to be empowering. Some may disagree with the LoA teachings as they are called. They may say that we have no control over our lives and things don't work that way in the real world. My only response to that is this... Maybe in your experience you have no control over your life, and you experience the world in a certain way. Maybe you always have. But just because something has been one way for a long period of time does not mean it always has to be that way. Also if there is one way things can be, they can certainly be another. Finally if life does not work that way, then why not? Why does life have to work as you think it does and not this other way? Some reading material: I am interested to see what others think about this. Do you believe there is a subconscious or unconscious mind? If you do, why? If you don't, why not? Also if you haven't made up your mind yet about this subject, maybe these words will help you decide for yourself. I have experienced no benefit believing in the subconscious or unconscious mind. In fact I suspect that my current life situation, the beliefs I have that manifested this experience, were reinforced by those beliefs. I think letting them go will help me to break apart the physical reality I am experiencing and create something better. If this is the path you wish to take, the first step is to let go of the concept or idea of the subconscious mind. Doesn't matter if it is really there are not. Just adopt a "don't know" or nonchalant attitude about it. If its there, cool. If its not there, cool. For now you are just ignoring the question of its reality so you are free to engage with the conscious mind for a while, see where that takes you.
  2. Fool's Journey

    Came across an article and movie on the "Magic Mountain". There's a mass quality of peeps interested in "Occult Knowledge or magic", especially within Western tradition. Which relies heavily upon a multi-layered network of corresponding intra-systemic symbols, as a mnemonic system that 'trains' young sponge-like minds throughout adult life-the imaginative faculties heightens the vision of the soul consciousness that peers directly into the divine astral in order to 'transcend' the normal plane of consciousness. Eastern tradition of zen- and yoga practices take the opposite approach by stripping away attachments of the train mind and by stilling the imaginary faculties of mind. To rise beyond-before- below the highs of spiritual occult knowledge takes strength to let go of collecting. Is a deeper conditionings and keep the mind attaining more information in cycles of madness-rabbit hole-pull-push. Sitting and not thinking is never going to become a practice by the masses. Mind is trained and controlled through reputitious collecting for excitement and nervousness. Don't get me wrong, there is a richness within the occult secret knowledge, only if you can read it with an open mind. And, these stories and symbols that can easily be manipulated toward the opposite means, to blind and bind-to blame and praise modes. You, can actually manipulate yourself, thinking someone is actually doing something to you. Once empty consciousness takes hold of the attitude within the belief of an inner-outer play with the imaginary symbolism, it's revealed with a heavy hand that awareness becomes deeply awake of it's play. Reality-One Life with it's surreal beauty-image imagination can be violently symbolic with regards to attachments and trying to attain it's limited content. Collective consciousness as a Planet were educated at a young age to recognize the duality of words, mathematical numbers, symbols to take as; TRUTH and to belief that were these limitless entities within memory-reality tunnels of content of the subconscious, this is false. An Elementary System, a trial if you will to know how words and images play with each other and then eventually cancel each other out. It takes a fool to acknowledge, this. It takes failure to become success. It takes courage-strength-compassion-understanding to walk this pathless empty path, where in actuality there truly is no path! It's the path of the thinking mind that thinks within things, that eventually you can see through this elementary system is coming and going, and continues to do, so! ~Regardie~
