Academy Fundamentals - Conscious and Subconscious
On the Journey of Awakening, we must look at something challenging to perceive, yet intrinsic to the Quest itself. That we only have so much awareness at any given moment. This determines our level of access to the assets of consciousness, and is defined by our subconscious patterns.
We relate to this from our current level of awareness, what we are “conscious” of. Yet consider, that what informs our reality is much deeper, beneath the surface. To navigate the depths is what the framework of the Physics of the Quest is here to help you do.
The Line of Mystery
Between what we are aware of and what we are not is a subtle line of distinction. The Line of Mystery, the horizon that meets the seas of consciousness as far as we can see. Much like an iceberg, what we are conscious of is but the tip, yet most of the body of that mass lay beneath the ocean, down into the waters of the subconscious.
Even deeper still is that darkness of what we are completely unaware of, the depths of the unconscious. Learning to navigate the Waters of the Self is one of the goals of the Quest. We train ourselves to become more aware of the reality of the Line of Mystery, to move through the subconscious patterns that *define* our reality.
For as we become more aware of the depths of ourself, we can approach the causal and subtle layers that create our reality. We are able to work more deeply with those patterns, which is intrinsically related to our abundance.
The Structure of the Subconscious
In this context, most beings live on the surface of their awareness of self, not understanding that their manifest reality is deeply affected by what lay beneath their line of Mystery, the patterns and impressions within the ‘ice’ of their subconscious.
To take this journey down into the Center of the Self is the journey deeper into the Mythica, towards the Source of our Stories. Here, we come to see the caverns of creation within us, the subtle pathways and channels that are etched within the ice of the soul. It is a process of discovery and divination, navigating our way through, yet as we do, we uncover and unearth the treasures frozen within us.
Yet, those very treasures we find frozen within the traumas that are the trials of the Quest. The etching in the ice from past painful experiences, that left lasting impressions, often buried beneath our awareness. This is where the shadow-work and healing happens. We cannot stay the same version of ourself, and expect a new reality.
