When you decide to do something, who does the deciding? When you see through your eyes, who does the looking?
Perhaps the most essential aspect of life is awareness of who we are–yet it is typically also the least examined. While we speak in language that implies we presume to know that we have causal agency, and free will, the specifics of how this operates is seldom discussed or described.
I received a fascinating email question this past month:
In November 2019, I was preparing myself to travel to London on December 2019. During November, I was looking at some YouTube videos and one video came up randomly. The video is about stochastic processes. They lecturer won the Fields medal few years back. I very much enjoyed the theory, it is still simmering in my head to this day trying to connect it to other multiple theories:) When I got to London, I decided to walk to Hyde park on a Sunday, and during my walk, straight in front of me was the Lecturer who won the Fields medal few years back. [As if I was expecting him] I shook his hand and smiled, and told him it was a pleasure meeting him. What is the cause and what is the effect in this story?”
One of the things that first comes to my mind when contemplating this question is that most of us are typically largely unaware that we, ourselves, are not as simple nor contained as we might first presume. Indeed, it seems to me that we are energetic beings consisting of levels of awareness–of levels of self.
Levels of Self
One way to view our levels of self is to envision that we are limited in our perceptual abilities. We clearly witness this with each of our senses, such that for example, we can only see the colors of red through violet in the ‘visible spectrum.’ We cannot see into the infra-red nor ultra-violet ranges. We have similar perceptual limitations in hearing, such that we can only hear sounds that fall within our auditory range. Might it be possible that when it comes to a sense of self, we face similar constraints?
We might thus envision ourselves experiencing a middle range of self identity frequencies. Within such a conceptual range, we might expect to find ourselves well down from God / Creator / Divine Source. English writer and philosopher Aldous Huxley outlined the core of an idea that is somewhat similar to this in his “perennial philosophy,” featured in his book by the same name. He wrote:
“Philosophia Perennis: the phrase was coined by Leibniz; but the thing — the metaphysic that recognizes a divine Reality substantial to the world of things and lives and minds; the psychology that finds in the soul something similar to, or even identical with, divine Reality; the ethic that places man’s final end in the knowledge of the immanent and transcendent Ground of all being — the thing is immemorial and universal.”
Huxley’s conceptualization of God at the pinnacle of a pyramidal shape is particularly intriguing, since it provides a model by which we might imagine where individual levels of human consciousness fit in, somewhere down a ways from the top.
Free Will, and Cause and Effect
Now we can return to considering the original question regarding what is the cause and what is the effect, when we experience extraordinary moments of synchronicity such as just happening to run into the very person we’d seemingly randomly just recently viewed in content that just happened to pop up on YouTube. Clearly, such an experience seems to defy the odds, and it almost seems like a magic trick, since something so unexpected has occurred. Yet, when we consider how higher levels of self–like God–operate outside of time, and are capable of working in cahoots with others above our awareness–then we can start to see how all kinds of remarkable moments of synchronicity might occur.
Indeed, many amazing experiences in our lives might seem orchestrated according to a hidden order. We might note that such experiences tend to happen most often when we are in a relaxed, daydream like state of mind, feeling detached from any stresses of the day, yet engaged and entangled with what we love. This state of mind is a reality shifting state of mind, ideally suited for experiencing all manner of enjoyable reality shifts, quantum jumps, and the Mandela Effect.
We can envision how all the levels of self that comprise each one of us are working to create the experiences and events in our life. This is always happening, and always has the ability to bring miraculous quantum jumps that we need, when we need them. There is thus no need for ‘convincing’, since truly whatever our subconscious needs we will likely experience. And likewise, whatever our High Self chooses for us is likely to occur as well. The range of choices we have is a slice of self–the parts of ourselves that we have conscious awareness of. This is where we can become aware of our ability, for example, to stop feeling stress–to become aware that we can let go of fears, anger, and sorrow. From a detached, yet entangled-with-love state of mind, we are thus capable of making choices for reality selection based on a foundation of neutral emotional state–feeling relaxed, and accepting with a sense of faith.
With all of these qualities, then yes, whatever you truly need can instantly be yours, almost as if by magic. This seems to work best quite often when we forget we asked for it in the first place (truly release our focus of attention on what we’re hoping for). We can shift to another timeline through manifestation/meditation/prayer–remembering that this kind of timeline selection works best attaining that relaxed state of neutral acceptance.
Naturally I suggest providing additional positive onward-and-upward intentional guidance by remembering to always ask, “How good can it get?”
