The Mental Architect
Imagine, for a moment, that you are living a dream in which you are the center of force upon which everything and everyone revolves. Imagine that your thoughts give life to the material and physical world around you, the buildings, the trees, the animals, the people moving to and fro. Your thoughts give them thoughts and possibilities and in turn their thoughts and actions are simulated back onto you in the form of words, emotions, body language, and so on.
Our world is a projection of ourselves, everything and everyone in it is nothing but our own illusion in a state of constant becoming. There is a consistent ebb and flow, feeding and feedback that keeps this conscious illusion continuously moving forward. It is essential to one’s development that his thought forms be kept in a state of consistent obedience. This can only be achieved when one realizes that he is the center of all thoughts being experienced.
Thought forms, once created, take on a life of their own, they think, they desire, they live but yet are still within the boundaries of one’s own mind. It is important that the neophyte retain the awareness that he is forever and always the architect. His thought forms should never be allowed to dictate to him how things are or should be. By allowing this, more thought forms are being created, desirable and undesirable, as consciousness is always in a state of constant becoming.This is a terrible injustice for if he fails he consciously bonds himself to his own illusions. The key lies in the realization of the initiates point of perspective. This is by far no easy task and calls for the strictest adherence to discrimination as it requires a great shift in conscious awareness. One must see all as “maya”.
The Universal Mind is vast and complicated and in it all things are in actuality “one” with that Mind. Each center although part of the whole has an individual experience of consciousness within that whole. Our thought forms are the seeds that shape our individual experience. One must make a conscious separation between his true self and the sensory illusion that he is experiencing. One must still the mind…
Example: At some point in the adolescent life of a man, a friend with whom he has known for many years advises him on the difficulties of some goal in which he is trying to attain. The friend goes further on to explain why and how it would be nearly impossible to overcome such a challenge. The man conceives as he can now see how daunting the task would be.
This example serves as one of the more destructive representations of the principle of polarity through mental transmutation. The subject has allowed his experience to control his thoughts; the observed to manipulate the observer. He has now become a victim to his own thoughts and in so doing is re-creating his individual experience based on a previous experience.
