"Be fearless and resolute. All obstacles will melt away before you."
Understanding what we really are, seeing the world as it really is—not how we wish it to be—and being able to distinguish truth from lies and half truths (distortions) are requisite to progressing on your conscious journey of awakening. Your ability to embody Core Self is directly impacted by your understanding, or lack of understanding of what is currently taking place within and around you.
Identifying the obstacles on your journey that thwart not only your ability to embody Core Self, but your inherent desire to do so is of vital importance. There are five fundamental barriers which suppress awareness of and access to higher-order knowledge and energies by suppressing awareness of and thus access to inner knowing.
These barriers were "erected" and are continually reinforced through an array of techniques which diminish and ultimately regress consciousness. They were selected and implemented by the consciousness-regressive ruling class because of their effectiveness in keeping humanity mired in low-level, self-limiting, fear-based consciousness.
1. FIVE-SENSORY FOCUS
This imbalance derives from the distortion (false concept) that only things which can be perceived with our five senses are "real" and comprises complete identification with and focus on only the physical level of being. Deep attachment to this ideology keeps us from seeing what we really are and why we are here. As a result, we continue co-creating and reinforcing the currently consciousness-regressive conditions of our shared reality.
Most humans are extremely attached to this illusion because they are attached to the illusion of "hard" matter. They believe that only things which are "solid" are real when in fact, matter itself isn't solid at all; it is potentiality in its fundamental state. It is the observer effect (the mind) which ultimately transmutes potentiality into [energetic] form.
For example, the human eye as part of the mind-body complex in its current consciousness-regressed state can only detect a fraction of the totality of the range of visible wavelengths of light energy. We are only able to perceive the color spectrum.
Human eyes cannot perceive infrared frequencies (wavelengths below the color red) or ultraviolet frequencies (wavelengths above the color violet). We are also unable to perceive many sound frequencies.
Does that mean these light and sound frequencies don't exist?
The physical level of being is extremely important. But paying little or no attention to, and expending little or no effort to recover and bring into day-to-day existence our higher-order "non-physical" energetic and creational capacities contributes to and keeps us trapped in our consciousness-regressive reality.
Our five senses are our biological technologies for sensing and experiencing "physical" reality. They are our receptors for perceiving light, sound, smell, touch and taste. The catch is that most people become immersed in sensory function, believing that only that which can be [physically] perceived and experienced via our five senses comprises the totality of reality.
Space—the potentiality of reality at the quantum level—comprises as much as 99.99% of so-called "solid" matter. Therefore, perception is not reality. Those fully preoccupied by five-sensory perceptions are caught in the consciousness-limiting web of a purely material, and thus self-limiting, surreal existence.
THE STUFF OF WHICH WE ARE MADE
Potential (consciousness) and vital energy—both being non-physical "attributes"—comprise the mind-body complex and physical reality at their most fundamental levels. The vibrational aspect of [physical] energy is what gives matter its illusion of solidity. It is critical that this fundamental truth be understood because it illustrates how our thoughts, emotions and actions give rise and ultimately form to our reality through the alchemical "marriage" and transmutation of consciousness (potential) and vital energy into collapsing "physical" energy wave potentialities expressed as "physical" reality.
Reality is co-created at the macro level. The things and events we experience in the world emerge from and express through collapsing potentialities in response to the aggregate of humanity's thoughts, feelings, choices, worldviews and actions.
Although the "injection" of the concept of quantum physics into the minds/consciousness of various humans on this planet by higher-density, consciousness-regressive beings was intended to advance their service-to-self agenda, attaining knowledge and understanding of some of the "workings" of quantum physics can help facilitate our self-mastery / awakening process efforts.
The word quantum means amount in Latin. Quantum energy is an energy packet.
The Double-Slit Experiment provided demonstrable evidence of The Observer Effect through the examination of how matter behaves at the subatomic or quantum level. The Observer Effect is [quantum] scientific verbiage for the first principle of creation which tells us that all creations begin with a thought (observation), and thoughts lead to the manifestation of things and events (effect).
The experiment was set up in such a way as to observe the wave function of potential [physical] energy (not to be confused with consciousness/potential or vital energy). It was only when [non-physical] consciousness (observation/thought) was introduced that a wave potential (physical energy) collapsed into a particle (physical) "event."
In other words, interference patterns arose solely as the result of observation, affording conclusive evidence that physicality arises from [non-physical] potential (consciousness) and vital energy.
Believing that matter is "solid," that the creation of matter is solely a [quantum] mechanical process and that our world and the cosmos are nothing more than machines comprising atomic and sub-atomic parts in which consciousness doesn't play a central role is a consciousness trap. This worldview has contributed significantly to the regression of human consciousness.
The quality of manifest reality is dictated by the quality of consciousness "observing" the wave of potentialities. Deep understanding of and acting in accordance with the higher-order principles of creation is fundamental to raising the quality of that which we co-create and experience in physical reality.
2. EGO IDENTIFICATION AND ATTACHMENT
This barrier comprises identifying with and becoming attached to life roles, physicality and other [manifest] expressions of reality. These states of being inhibit understanding of what we really are, in turn, preventing access to the higher-order consciousness and creational capacities of Core Self.
Desire has been made the scapegoat for all human suffering. But in itself, desire doesn't cause suffering.
Rather, it is our identification with ego as "true" self and our attachment to ego-driven desires—versus Core-Self identification and alignment with Its desires—that cause misery and suffering. This goes hand-in-hand with five-sensory focus and the observer effect in shaping manifest reality.
Ego identification ties directly into the false belief (distortion) that physical survival and well being are of primary importance at the expense of being identified with and seeking to fulfill the desires of Core Self. This leads to severely limited ideas about what is actually possible because we have severely limited ideas about what actually constitutes reality, in effect, cutting ourselves off from the unlimited potential of higher-order consciousness and therefore, higher-order potential realities.
The quality of our consciousness and attention determines the quality of our manifest reality and experiences. Collectively, these things collapse the wave function of many potentialities into that which we actually "get" in the present moment. What are we paying attention to? What are we talking about? What do we do with our time? What are we working toward as a species?
We are so identified with physicality and focused on matter and matter expressed as events that we don't bother to look into the principles of creation and rules of engagement which actually govern matter in all its [expressed] forms. We don't understand how events are arranged in the field of consciousness to create our reality and how they are determined in large part by the choices we make.
If our our choices of thought and behavior are not in alignment with the principles of creation and the desires of Core Self, we are unable to create the kind of reality that we say we want. This can only happen through the attainment of higher-level consciousness.
At the fundamental level of beingness—the level of Core Self—we are consciousness and life itself. We are dynamism and intelligence. We are, both at the individual and collective levels, unique expressions of the whole of consciousness.
You are far more than a "physical" being existing in a "physical" reality. You are not a mother, father, partner/significant other, husband, wife, brother, sister, son, daughter, banker, soldier, CEO, entrepreneur, artist, musician, attorney, salesperson or teacher. These are roles you have undertaken in this reality.
When we identify with ego and physicality and become attached to our roles, we lose sight of what we really are and our entire lives and attention become rigidly focused on, if not completely preoccupied with physicality and fulfilling material desires, and our roles and their periphery—our businesses, our livelihoods, our relationships, the institutions we're associated with and so forth—all of which directly impede [Core-Self] embodiment.
WHAT IS THE EGO?
Ego is a powerful "mechanism" in the human mind-body complex creational toolkit that provides a sense of "other" which facilitates our ability to function and survive in the physical realm. But we have become lost and deeply entrenched in a false sense of separateness which has infiltrated and presides over every aspect of our existence.
We create [egoic] identities based on preferential choices. Ironically—and quite revelatory of the nature of Core Self—most ego-identified, pleasure or relief-seeking choices we make tend to be those which make us forget about our egoic selves. In other words, we continually seek to "lose" our [egoic] selves in various activities of our choosing.
Ego is vitally important as a tool for daily existence and in itself, doesn't cause suffering. It is our identification with and attachment to ego that causes suffering.
Ego is an illusion because it is not what we really are. Ego identification and attachment perpetuate our entrapment in ego-driven (regressive) consciousness versus Core Self-driven (progressive) consciousness. Until this illusory tyrant has been removed from one's internal "throne," the mind-body complex's ability to fully transduce Core Self desires, higher-order intelligence and creational capacities is seriously impaired.
3. THE PYRAMID SYSTEM
The pyramid system is quintessential mass consciousness/mind control. Pyramidal structures of manipulation and control are firmly rooted within every key center of society and every area of human endeavor throughout the world.
The pyramid is a hierarchical structure. It comprises a centralized "top down" command-and-control framework of operation with built-in ranking systems. The higher an individual's or group's ranking, the more knowledge they have of the institution's overall agenda and plans. Only the few at the very top are aware of the entire agenda and plans.
These structures take the form of institutions such as foundations, think tanks, societies, governments, privately-owned and publicly-traded businesses (large and small), banking and financial entities, religious and other not-for-profit institutions, school and university systems, the military and law enforcement agencies, political organizations, illegal drug and other organized crime operations, healthcare systems, intelligence agencies and media.
But the religions of the world, government/politics and the ultimate religion of money are the bedrock pyramidal institutions of control and manipulation which enable the existence and flourishing of all others.
Hierarchical structures are always compartmentalized. One department or group doesn't know what others are doing or at least not everything they're doing, and doesn't have knowledge of the overall agenda and plan until it is actually put in play. Thus individuals unwittingly advance the agendas of the consciousness-regressive ruling class without knowing that's what they're doing because they are unaware of the bigger picture and agenda.
Compartmentalized, hierarchical entities afford a chain-of-command control system for keeping people in line and lock step with the bigger agenda. Because of its far-reaching effectiveness, the pyramid structure is a highly-favored control mechanism of the ruling class that is clearly evidenced by its widespread use throughout the world.
The structure of any institution that is going to use information in destructive ways is always pyramidal, which means that vital knowledge held by those at the top of the pyramid is never freely or widely shared, and as such, is completely controlled by them. These organizations are breeding grounds for corruption, fraud, and obscene disparities between the way those at the top and those at the bottom of the pyramid are treated, along with countless other abuses of power.
This methodology controls people of all types and across all walks of life. In fact, it is so pervasive and widely accepted in society that even the smallest of businesses and other organizations incorporate a pyramidal infrastructure and use it to manipulate and take advantage of others, even when some of them don't know that is what they're doing.
IN PLAIN SIGHT
The ruling class revel in the fact that this method of control is "hidden" in plain sight—literally out in the open for all the world to see. The highest-level, in-the-know few take perverse pleasure in flaunting their work publicly, right under the noses of the many.
These pyramidal institutions blatantly mock, deride and debase those who are a part of or otherwise participate in keeping them operational. The human and non-human beings at the top take particular delight in the fact that the pyramid system of control is accepted and replicated everywhere because the many are completely oblivious to the behind-the-scenes beings and what's really going on in the world.
These institutions of control are dominating our world and bringing about the lion's share of suffering that is seemingly inherent to the human condition. However, this suffering is self-inflicted because as a whole, humans do not want to accept basic truths.
Most people aren't interested in seeking out truth because it takes time and effort to discover and involves a great deal of self discovery and self work in the process. Thus, these institutions of control are completely self-sustaining structures.
It is critical that you understand the people who work for these institutions. Due to lower levels of consciousness among the majority of the population as a result of the occulting of vital knowledge, most people—even those who actually work within the institutions—cannot see how these structures of manipulation and control work and therefore do not see or understand the ruling-class schemes and agendas in play.
People who participate in or otherwise support hierarchical, compartmentalized structures are yielding to the ostensible authority of the consciousness-regressive controllers and their secrecy-based activities and agendas. In other words, they are consenting by default (the trap of agreement) to ruling-class "authority" and what they're really involved in and up to.
By supporting these institutions, human consciousness is altered, diminishing awareness of and access to higher-order knowledge and capacities. When exposed to and immersed in these systems over extended periods of time, even those are on a conscious journey of awakening can fall into patterns of [predominantly] consciousness-regressive thoughts and behaviors, and ultimately, completely lose touch with any innate sense of what they really are and why they are really here.
THE LIGHT OF HIGHER-ORDER KNOWLEDGE
Consciousness-progressive works—those which advance higher-order awareness, knowledge and creational capacities—are done in the light of day. Consciousness-regressive works—those which arrest higher-level consciousness—are done in the shadows of darkness.
If the whole of humanity knew what the ruling class were really doing and understood their ultimate agenda, most would neither participate in nor condone the existence of hierarchical, secrecy-based systems and agendas. These structures only exist because people believe in them.
They are the manifest byproducts of perverse ideologies conceived in diseased, confused, fear-dominated minds, used solely for the benefit of the few to the demise of the many. And they are perpetuated solely by the general population's belief in, acceptance of and participation in them.
Whenever people are confused internally and don't know themselves or understand the situation they're in, they lash out and attempt to take external control, which flies directly in the face of the higher-order principles of creation. The only things over which anyone ever has a "right" to take control of are their own thoughts, their own emotions and their own actions (self-mastery). Nothing else.
Hierarchical, secrecy-based pyramidal institutions are nothing more than mind and consciousness control systems. Those who erect and run them are seeking to control and exploit others by manipulating how they think, feel and act.
4. THE PRISON OF THE LEFT BRAIN-DRIVEN CONSCIOUSNESS
This is an extremely popular methodology with the controllers because it obstructs people's ability to become aware that they're being controlled. The overwhelming majority of people in Western cultures are under heavy lockdown in this invisible prison.
The left-brain modality of consciousness facilitates a linear, non-intuitive way of thinking. Left-brain hemisphere domination is largely the result of intense indoctrination received through the "education" system in Western society.
Prisoners of the left-brain modality of consciousness are typically deeply identified with physical matter and materialism—five-sensory focus. The left brain is critical as it is our tool for understanding and functioning in the physical world by enabling linear, logical thought and the ability to maneuver the mind-body complex and other "physical" expressions within in this reality.
However, chaos and therefore suffering quickly ensue when we live solely through the left-brain modality because we become [five] sensory-focused on materialism. The Limbic Brain, which discerns the potential impact and repercussions of our actions in the world, begins to [functionally] atrophy. This functional shut down impairs our capacity for connecting with Core-Self and our higher-order intelligence, along with our desire to do so, thus suppressing the full extent of our ability to feel empathy and compassion for others.
Conscious, intentional efforts to transduce Core-Self desires and higher-order capacities restores and ultimately leads to activation of the highest-order mind-body complex functioning and capacities. But these conscious, intentional efforts are [necessarily] driven by healthy, whole-brain functioning—wherein there is a healthy balance between left-brain and right-brain functions. We become trapped in left-brain modality when we ingest and align our behaviors with the distortions (false thoughts, ideologies and information) that have been served up to us throughout the course of our lives.
5. ATTACHMENT TO INSTITUTIONALIZED BELIEF SYSTEMS
Institutionalized belief systems are false dogmatic ideologies devised by the ruling class to manipulate the thoughts, feelings and behaviors of those who adhere to them, thus perpetuating themselves by way of those manipulated thoughts, feelings and behaviors. As such, they become "institutions" which breed institutionalized ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Identifying and removing these distortions from ourselves is fundamental to the process of self-mastery attainment.
Those who are locked into institutionalized belief systems are wholly-owned without even realizing it. Many of them believe that because they're following the instructions and orders of their "superiors" they're not accountable for their consciousness-regressive behaviors and actions toward themselves and others.
Those who are giving the orders think they're somehow insulated from the consequences of the consciousness-regressive acts they've charged others with doing on their behalf because they're not actually the ones who are committing the acts. But they are as delusional as the order followers.
Consciousness continually seeks to balance its consciousness-regressive aspects with its consciousness-progressive aspects, whether you can see that process in action or not. Ultimately, all imbalances become balanced.
If you're on a conscious journey of awakening in this reality at this time, you're here to assist with bringing the currently-predominant regressive consciousness in our world back into balance with progressive consciousness in your own unique way (your unique purpose). The unfoldment of purpose begins by aligning your thoughts, emotions and actions with consciousness-progressive consciousness through the process of regaining self-mastery.
Five sensory-focus, deep-seated ego identification and attachment, left-brain imprisonment, the pyramid system and entrenchment in dogmatic, institutionalized belief systems are definitely imposing obstacles that can greatly inhibit, if not totally block our awakening journey progress. Yet all of these obstacles can be dissolved with burning desire, focused "right" intention, steadfast commitment, self-discipline and various "personalized" tools that support our efforts to progress on this amazing journey.
