On Camera Selection & Form

A creative shooter seeks gear that compliments his style. This governs how chooses his equipment. As a person whom lives by fire of experience, it is this alone which stands as the one true test of acceptability.

The corpus of his modus is that, any gear he seeks, is to manifest his idea perfectly, that is all.

1000 Days in Paris-1-4

Should his gear encumber her in any way this stops an idea from manifesting correctly, and she discards it in lieu if something more refined.

Refined means that the ideas in ones mind flow like an an encumbered river back into the sea as the tides change, there is no separation. 

Therefore, the ability to manifest our ideas is the test of whether the gear is suitable.

A creative shooter constantly assesses whether his idea is manifested as it appears in his minds eye. He seeks to make his own picture in the minds eye then project the through her veil of space and time into a medium which accurately manifests his pre-produced idea.

The argument of film and digital is erroneous to the creative mind as he sees only the result of his thinking being manifested correctly as it was first seen in his mind, or, an aberration of something thing which resembles, but is not quite his desired rendering.

A creative shooter thus encompasses all methods and forms in order to manifest his idea. All are treated with the same degree of equanimity and impartiality. The ultimate aesthetic is the aesthetic of mind, and he seeks to mirror this aesthetic in her outer reflection of his inner minds picture.

1000 Days in Paris-1-2

Arguments about form and outer imaginings are not something a creative shooter is entangled by, as he uses all forms, as is required to manifest his ideas.

Thus the maxim follows, that the form is only a reflection of the picture, as the true picture exists beyond its reflection, in the mind, the form is the outer imaginings of the still inner mind.

Thus the camera serves as the gateway to reproduce his idea onto her outer form, but the form is only a reproduction of the idea, just as a book is full of words which mirror the thinking of its author.

The Fourth Future

In our progression upwards from identification with matter,(1) we are initially identified with a singular thought form, to the exclusion of all others. This process is of course in reverse order as to its original creation.

We then seek to change this, by reactively choosing another path. Much like an echo in the canyon or ball bouncing off the ground. Perhaps we choose this second pathway out of a seemingly free will, or based on some program that we think; we need/want/have to change our future.

After recognising that this new alternate path is merely creating a dual pathway for the future, an in doing, we also start to perceive double deja vu experiences. These experiences are obviated or perhaps aberrated to the degree we have chosen this second pathway.

Perhaps we now perceive something in the now that we thought was an association to a former de ja vu projection, but because we have now changed our future, this new reality is different, thus the direct, but aberrated association.

The 3rd pathway is considering more than just a dualistic pattern where we consider a third dimension of thought, where in relative holographic terms we see that there are multitudes of different pathways with alternatives.(2)

The fourth future is where we see from a perspective outside time and space, in a conceptual place of ‘essence’.(2) Where, the outer, even the thoughts forming, are manifested from a conceptual essence beyond time and space. Thus, the fourth future is beyond, but encompasses all the other pathways.

Our de ja vu experiences are much more of a projection in the NOW of our upcoming future as determined by the conceptual gradient of thoughts manifesting from outside time and space, particlizing with the energies of the universe and associating and attracting our reality.

One must consider, that all things are gradient in nature, whilst we may have a flash of inspiration that transcends all outer ‘maya’,(3) we perhaps need to be patient as the new outer reality accepts these changes. 

Its fair to mention that to the degree of the first step  of the 10 Steps to Perfection needs to be constantly adhered to. In my experience people have been given knowledge, but by lack of faith within themselves to hold fast, this is taken from them, by their own creation. Thus, we have people whom come and go with great inspiration one minute, then nowhere to be seen the next.

I guess we are like the cork on the crest of the wave sometimes, up and down, rolling and tumbling, in the wild and wet seas of consciousness. Are we the cork, or the wave, or neither, or both? Or, are are we the creative force behind all matter that is the essence of all life…

I’ve often pondered about the growth of consciousness in relation to the material presented in Ray’s material, as suggested below. But after seeing how our projections are altered I conject through my own experiences, that so do our so called deja vu experiences adapt and morph according to our thinking.

We’ve all had these deja vu experiences, some are clean and clear as crystal, but some are somewhat clouded, associated, changed somehow. 

I might add that, if we could see the cause of all effect, there would be no effect. Therefore, we are eternally progressing in our knowledge and advancement. Let’s not make the mistake by thinking we have it all, and in doing so shut ourselves off from further knowledge and experiences. 

We project ourselves as corks on the ocean, a projection, no less, but we still need to swim.

Below is an excerpt from Addendum #2, Step Seven of the Visualization and Consciousness Sequence:(2)

These laws move us from a position of onepointedness, in a gradual manner, to the recognition and non-resistant acceptance of another point of view. When this is accomplished one is capable of seeing a duality from a linear or one dimensional position, which on planet earth is an admirable accomplishment. After linear and sequential thinking are mastered, one can begin to think in terms of two dimensions and sees more than two points of view which places one beyond the yes-no, off-on, logical computer-like thinking which is the linear and sequential thinking.

This now moves one into the recognition and acceptance of three or more alternatives outside of a right-wrong, good-bad framework. This leads one into relative perceptuality, which is, in this society, an indication of advanced thinkers. Once one can see all things relative to a gradient scale and that which may be right for one individual may be wrong for another we are then capable of observing the Law of Temperance and the interaction of this law at many levels. This requires the intelligence to move out of linear and sequential thinking to two dimensional thinking.

As one expands his/her awareness and can focus relatively on many multi-conditional considerations simultaneously one then moves into three dimensional thinking, known as hologrammic or holographic thinking which is the ability to see the cause effect relationship of one or many simultaneous events from a position of perceptual newness.

Seeing it as it is now, where It came from and where it is going is perceptual newness. The greater the knowledge of the past, the greater the awareness of the present, the greater the ability of the individual to predict the future. Hologramrnic thinking is seeing multidimensionally from a multifaceted viewpoint or from a position of a multitude of simultaneous points of view.

Hologrammic thinking is a prerequisite to fourth dimensional thinking which can only come from a point of view which is simultaneously cause-effect, yin-yang, manifestation-essence, point of view that is capable of observing outcomes from a position of non-judgement and non-resistance, from a position of discernment while at the same time creating or uncreating or observing the creation from the inner essence. This point of view can only exist outside of time and space as we know it, yet is the creator of time, space, form and event as we perceive it. The altering of any existing hologrammic pattern must be done from a position of total non-resistance or discernment which is approximating the inner essence.

Any resistance will be the end result of awareness of causation and effect and thus a separation from the inner essence. Both cause and effect are the duality which holds manifestation in position. Therefore one must learn to encompass cause and effect from a non-spatial, non-times non-form, non-event position
which is from a position of essence, the true source of the yang creative force.

When one alters timespace- form-event from this position of the inner essence we then acknowledge the yang creative force and view the outer in a new perspective, as all changes to a new reality. The existing crystallizations of life reorder themselves gradually to a new pattern of creation. It would now be wise to reread Chapter Twenty-Nine in Book Three of the Logic in Sequence Series.

Naming Conventions and the Law of Balance

Preponderant naming conventions shouldn’t change for the sake of it, as they should be changed by realisation only.

Why? Because changing the physical name does nothing to change consciousness, it simply masks what is already there, or creates an overlay to an existing overlay or illusion.

For example, do we change Mother Earth, to Mother – Father Earth?

Realisation happens as we encompass both forms on the mental level. Intellectualism is where we think changing the wording will free us.

By mastering what is already in front of us we have the window to the soul and ultimately realisation on the mental level.

Things are preponderantly expressed in their seeming expression of a male or female, but they are an illusion, anyway. Thus, duality is encompassed on the mental level, not the physical, changing the physical without a corresponding change on the mental level does nothing and in fact perpetuates resistance.

One might argue also, that legislation which differentiates or partiallizes people in anyway perpetuates the separation perceived in the minds of people. For example, when we try to act as a civil society that does not segregate, marginalize or ostracise people from any demographic in anyway, and by doing do, legislate that people from certain classes of society of given an automatic partiality, then, this perpetuates the very separation we are trying to resolve.

Consider all the legislative acts that partialize communities and people? Legislative reform needs to happen where, the entire population is benefited and protected and harmonized with full freedom, not to divide, splinter off and partialize.

The feminism revolutions put the female back onto  an equal playing field. Great, but the lobbyists now want to legislate an equal pay system for Women and a Women in work policy etc. I think the idea is great, but the execution is wrong. We need equally balanced legislation where both Male and Female is equal.

When anything goes against the laws of nature, problems will happen. Seek balance at all levels.

Unity vs Separation

(Written somewhere between 2001-2004)

my unity is my oneness
the still silence of knowing
my glassy pond of stillness
I can reflect anything from everywhere

the separation is my creation
the ripples one my cosmic pond
they are not me
they are my projection
my separation

the ripples of my mind
projected through our time
reflected in me
but are not me

a dream that was once real
simplifying life
my gaze is now inwards
to see that life delights

the stormy pond of our life
will calm again
sweep clear our desires
desireless ness

I create my waves of motion
my life
they do not create me

If I AM centered in my stillness
my separation cannot be

We Need to Be Controlled

Jackie Chan, recently made the statement: ‘we Chinese need to be controlled. If we’re not being controlled, we’ll just do what we want.‘.(1)

This resistance pattern is something I believe is in the blood of most Asian people. Something which they feel deep in their beings.

Generally speaking, as referred to by Dr John Whitman Ray in Book Three of Logic in Sequence, particularly Chapter 29 there are four pathways of resistance we can follow. One of these pathways is the one pointed resistance to the effect where we have to be controlled, and through sheer force of will we choose with all our might that this is the case.

I believe Chan has uncovered the pattern that controls and dominates all Asian society in this doctrine of being controlled and the need to follow.

Whether this is Chan following state run mainland Chinese rhetoric or simply observing himself as a projection onto Taiwan or Hong Kong people is slightly unclear, but the former seems to be most likely, but is actually irrelevant. 

What matters, is people become aware and then transmute this pattern through the methodology described in the Logic in Sequence Series: Obverse, Receive, Re-create, Release,(2) and/or other similar methods of transmutation taught in other metaphysical theory.(3)

This pattern of being controlled, the need to follow, and to do so compulsively is what creates the regime that controls us. It is the outer manifestation our collective inner thinking.

The fact this pattern is coming into awareness is good, and the social activism taking place is Hong Kong is great as well. All that needs to happen is the willingness to be fully out of control and to be controlled, and the willingness to be the unwillingness to be the effect, as another example, and then, to recreate, take responsibility, and release this pattern.

Then we will see a permanent change in the thinking of those free thinking warriors determined to make changes and ultimately the freedoms will become reality for the people.

In summary, this rally and the series of previous rally’s against the controlling regime are good things. Just staying the course, whilst continually educating ourselves within how to release our resistances will change the external reality.

The outer must conform with the inner, as the outer is one with the inner essence as they exist simultaneously and sequentially, together. Once one’s attention is released from the outer condition it disappears back into he void.  

‘It is good to feel good about the good in one’s self; but it is bad to feel bad for the bad that should be destroyed’. – Bhagavad Gita, Verse 27(4)

And, seeks to disseminate this information so the people can use it to free themselves and destroy any regime that seeks to control them, and to reinforce the democratic process.

The Politics of Change, a Chinese Perspective

It’s been an interesting journey for China in the last few years since I wrote this brief post on my old Body Electronics group. I feel that a gradual, slow and sure will of people are making changes for the positive China.

It’s not just people in China but the world that are pushing together from a position of collective will to form a cohesive spirit of reform. A pebble drops into the ocean and it’s ripples travel to the far shores of the universe. It then starts the long journey back. (2)

I believe that we are seeing the result of the ‘Maharishi Effect’ in full swing,(3) when out of nowhere it seems as if Hong Kong is in crisis where the streets are full of people protesting for new freedoms.

My thoughts are that it is not the end game that is important, but that people continue to lobby for efforts of freedom from a position of them already being completed. (4) 

What I mean, is, to be sure that we are focusing from a position of new freedoms already having been completed in our minds. As, if we do not we then create it’s opposite through resistance.

Therefore, focus, through social activism for change, yet keep the eye into the consciousness to recreate and free the minds of mental resistance simultaneously. This we see the cycle of Yin/Yang being completed.

God Speed to Hong Kong freedoms, and may the freeing of resistance and combined activity of social change calve a new path of freedoms for it’s people.

(Original Post 24th March 2012)

There is a growing movement within the rise of social consciousness via the Internet in China.(1) The question remains; will we see an Arab spring movement in China? (- soon?) And, can this be stopped if it does happen?

I think times are a changing in China and with the rise of global awareness ‘within and out’ of Chinese authoritarian rule, things will meet a ‘critical mass’ of awareness and, change, where an inevitable revolution, will happen – namely, a Neo-Liberal movement, is on the horizon.

Perhaps we can see the horizon, but, we can’t touch it …. just yet.

How does the global effect of collective consciousness change ‘affect’ the minds of people within China?

In response to a comment from a reader:

I think you’re referring to things in a way of simply ‘observing’ the outer conditions of mankind, without a solution. Namely, in manner of simultaneously viewing the inner essence. We can point to the outer, and talk “about it”, but our job, is to recreate the resistance, firstly, then to make appropriate changes in the outer world.

Collectively as we rise up through the level of the effect, we naturally rebel against a system, which we are resisting, and creating, call it what you will throughout each decade, but the principles are the same.

The Internet, is the vehicle, of what I would associate with the “doingness” of the “collective consciousness” of a geo-specific locale. Or, to put another way, the medium of communication which has a preponderance at the present time. As with time, the medium will change, ie, from press, to the digital age… to what?

The trends and data show us that there are over 700 million Internet users in China. The question I have put out, is, when this critical mass of people starts to create a coherent message of change, when will it happen, which I think it may do, and, could it be stopped by the government, if it does.

Remember, we project our thinking into the universe, which, it reflects back to us. As we change our thinking, so does this projection change. If we are pointing to the effect, or outer world, as I’ve suggested, and we do not view simultaneously the inner essence, we actually perpetuate the outer condition….because, we are “resisting” it.

(https://www.mum.edu/about-mum/consciousness-based-education/tm-research/maharishi-effect>; Note that in the work of Body Electronics it is understood that the square root of 1% of a group relevant to consciousness change taking place then critical mass is achieved. Notwithstanding, if coherence is achieved through TM, then it has a similar effect, however consciousness change still needs to take place. In the later case we are seeing the inertia changed through coherence of exceeding the upper parameters of the wave cycle of vibration in this area of consideration. Simply put, if people change their minds on a mass scale then it is permanent, if is through collective meditation and/or manipulation, one can conject that this said consciousness change still needs to take place, however the choices are arguably available, and achievable and maintainable through TM. Although TM is a form of Jhanic meditation(meditation with Seed), if people able to view the effect whilst creating a cause, then resistance can be recreated and released, although this activity is more more complicated then the 'Healing Crisis'. Nonetheless, it is possible, as when we focus our attention on an ideal, the resistance to this ideal is brought to the attention to be transmuted.
