Physics of the Quest
Awareness is the Conduit
To make the journey to the deeper version of yourself requires an understanding of awareness and it's relationship to abundance.
This ties directly into the realization that we live in a Friendly, Abundant Universe, yet are not always aware of that, and thus unable to access the majesty that is our birthright.
Awareness and Abundance
We live in an Abundant universe, full of Love, expansion and Grace. Yet in order to receive that treasure in it’s various forms, we must deepen our awareness of what truly is.
All things occur in the field of awareness. It is the conduit through which we are able to perceive and receive the Abundance of the Creation. When we live in the shallows of our awareness, we see only the surface of the World. Yet as we deepen into our self, as we cultivate our perception of the ever-more subtle distinctions of what is, we live a more robust life, bathing in the glory of the Creation that was always there, waiting to be seen.
This increase in awareness is paralleled by an increase in Abundance, for awareness is the conduit by which energy flows. It is very much like being in a dark room filled with treasure.
Without awareness, one cannot see the treasure, and assumes in it’s ignorance that it does not exist. Yet this is untrue. As stated earlier, we live in an Abundant universe. What changes is not the Abundance, but our perception and reception of it.
As a simple metaphor, consider that you are holding a candle in that room. Here and there, you can make out somewhat glittering things, yet it is muted, faded, and barely seen.
Now imagine that you are holding a flashlight. With this degree of luminance, more of the sparkly objects can be seen. You start to realize that there is something there.
Now, a searchlight. A much larger amount of luminance, which reveals that you have been standing in the middle of a pile of treasure. The room has not changed. You have.
Awareness is the key to Abundance.
Abundance is our birthright. Grace and Goodness are the true underlying tones of the Creation.
In the context of the Mythica, our heroic journey is one of movement from the distorted and unenlightened version of our reality into a more Abundant, Graceful manifestation. It is a Path of clearing and transformation, in which we dissolve the conditions of scarcity and limitation into a more expansive reality.
Key to this is the understanding that we live in a Friendly Universe. That despite what things seem to be on the surface of our perception, we live in a benevolent reality that wishes to help us discover who we really are. This is a grand evolution that takes place across a landscape of experiences which reveal the patterns within our own consciousness that are creating our manifestation.
In this context, our sacred Path is a heroic journey to the discovery of our seed within, the Gift of our being that wishes to express itself out into the World, occurring in the context of a Friendly Universe that wishes to help us.
As we travel along our journey, we encounter any number of experiences, trials and challenges, questions and confusions, which form the basis of our personal evolution. One in which we must face the distorted patterns within ourselves that are misaligned with the Abundant nature of the Universe. In which we must learn how to transform the substance of our consciousness to live in a more expansive reality.
This is challenging, for in our blossoming awareness, we do not always remember that we live in a Friendly Universe. As we face our challenges, we do not always recognize that the scarce and fearful ways in which we are perceiving our experience are not the Truth, but a distortion from the ever-expansive energy which truly is.
As we make our sacred journey deeper into the Mythica, we come to understand that all things relate to the Friendly universe and our perception and reception of the abundance that is our birthright.
As we make the journey into the magical World, we move through layers of awareness. This is very much like digging for buried treasure within the self where the treasure is a deeper and more expansive version of your reality.
To understand the magickal World and travel to the realms of Abundance requires an understanding of the nature of awareness and it’s relationship to the reality in which we live.
Spiritual truth always follows the patterns of Nature, for Nature is the very definition of our reality. In this context, the models we use to describe our reality can be used across the board.
As you can see in this illustration, we would describe the layers of the Earth in a very gross physical way, presenting the ‘surface’, the ‘crust’ and the various atmospheres leading to the core of the planet as we currently understand it. Such is a beautiful way of modeling part of the substance of our blessed planet.
As a way of looking at the depths of movement towards the core of the Earth, we can use this same idea to model the ways in which our awareness of our own self and the conditions of our circumstance may move from the surface to the subtle depths of our inner core.
In this case, we are presenting a movement of awareness, an ever-deepening perception of the subtle and then causal vibrations that make up our experience. As we do this, we gain an ever-brightening recognition of the real World of magick and wonder that is our birthright.
As we make the journey into the Mythica, we are learning to relate with the World on ever-deepening levels of subtlety. To understand and perceive that mystic octave, we must always remember that we are always looking at the same thing, only at different depths of perception.
You are always looking at the same thing, from different depths of perception.
Just as we cannot see the deeper layers of the Earth without actively digging down, we have no idea what lay in the depths of our potential. Like explorers searching for buried treasure, we must trust that there is more beneath the surface than we can currently perceive and do the work to transform our perception such that we may reach the Abundance within.
Just as the Earth has a surface layer, so does our perception. This is the most obvious layer of perception, to which all beings have consistent access. It is literally how things appear on the surface.
Beneath the surface of our perception lay the subtle realms of awareness. The vast territory of vibrational impressions that manifest through the ever-changing forms as they appear on the surface. Here, we see the archetypical energies that underlie our experience, the myths and divinities, the energies and spellworks that define our deeper human experience. At this level, we see, more deeply, the aspects of the Divine that embody through our selves.Just like digging towards the center of the Earth, there are many layers to the subtle perception of reality. It is a movement into our own Nature, which, like the Ocean and it’s unfathomable depths, is as vast as the Universe itself.
This is the entry to the Mythica. The real magical World.
As the Path continues, we go even deeper. Into the threads of our interconnection, the synchronicities of cause and effect. It is here we gain vision of the Great Story, the interweaving of our many Stories as the much larger tapestry of Life.
This is the depth in which we may view the World Tree, the interplay of relationships and sacred purpose which defines our shared journey.
The Prime Qualities (The Deva Realms)
As we walk the Path deeper into the subtle realms, form itself dissolves into it’s component parts. At this depth of perception, The vibrational impressions within the substance of reality are seen as made of the five primal elements of Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Akasha.
At the deepest level of perception lay the Akasha. The primal substance of form. That of consciousness itself, viewed as a sculptural medium. It is the most subtle of the elements, giving context to the other four. It is the context for form itself. That of which awareness is aware. The Akasha is known by many names, such as ‘Shakti’, ‘The Goddess’, ‘The Universe’, and others.
Formlessness, the Infinite
Beyond the dissolution of form itself lay the formless. The infinite emptiness of Source that gives rise to all form. Perceived as the embodiment of formlessness, this is the essence of God. As we make the heroic journey to unity with the Divine and the abundance that comes with that, this is our goal.
