Perception, Purified Perception And Knowledge Of Oneness

Written by 

The individual sees the world; he sees it with his unique state of mind. What is in his mind colors how he sees the world; he does not create the world he sees but sees it in his own way.

If you see a tree there is a tree there but how you see it is dependent on your state of mind; your perception is colored by your state of mind.

If you are judgmental and wish to see things in a certain manner, and judge things with your idea of ideals, perfection, you see things as not good enough.

On the other hand, you can see the tree and things without any presupposition and preconception of how they should be; you see the tree, animals and people without comment.

When you remove all presuppositions from your mind and see things the way they are your perception is objective.

In objective perception you are not projecting what is in your mind, your preferences and judgements to what you see.

Ordinarily, perception is projection; that is, the world you see out there is colored by your thinking; your thoughts affect the world you see (but your individual mind did not create the world you see; it merely colors how you see that world).

The entire universe is projected out by all the sons of God; that is, our collective self, during the big bang, invented our phenomenal universe.

We quickly forgot that we made this universe and say that God made it, for we know that if God made this awful world he must be a murderer and must be crucified.

LOVE MAKES WHAT YOU SEE LOOK BEAUTIFUL

If you love the things you perceive they look beautiful; if you hate the things you perceive they look dark in form.

IF YOU OVERLOOK THE THINGS YOU SEE YOU SEE ANOTHER WORLD IN LIGHT FORMS

If you overlook what you see with your physical eyes, forgive them, you see a different world, the world of light forms.

The world of light forms is not the ultimate world although it is the purified world. It is like our world, an illusory world although it is a better illusion than our world of dense forms.

Both the world of dense matter and the world of light matter are worlds of dreams; one (our present world) a nightmarish dream and the other (world of light forms) a happy dream.

A dream is not real; to see the real world, the unified spiritual world of God one has to tune out both our world and the world of light forms.

IF YOU OVERCOME THE WORLD OF FORMS YOU EXPERIENCE THE FORMLESS WORLD OF GOD

If you transcend all perception and do not want to see things in forms, light or dense, you escape from the world of perception and now live in the non-perceptual world of God.

In the world of God there is only a wave of light; you are a particle in that wave of light; the particle is one with all the other particles in the wave and with the wave of light itself.

That light is spiritual light, not physical light.  The world of God, aka the world of light is the world of knowledge.

A PURIFIED WORLD IS NOT THE WORLD OF GOD AND KNOWLEDGE

You can purify your perception and bring it near to the world of knowledge but it is still not the world of knowledge; as long as you see separated things and is in the world of space and time you are in the perceptual world, not the knowledge world; in the world of God all things are unified as one thing; it is a non-dualistic world; obviously, our present consciousness cannot understand that world of union.

Our present consciousness is separated consciousness, the world of you and non you, subject and object, seer and seen.

The world of God is the world of unified consciousness; in it there is no you and non-you, no seer and seen, no subject and object; all selves share one self and one mind.

You cannot understand the unified world of God with your present ego separated mind; tune out the ego consciousness (in meditation) if you want to experience the world of unified consciousness.

INDIVIDUAL PERCEPTION AND COLLECTIVE PERCEPTION

Each individual has perception, the way he sees his world; the individual's perception is always biased.

There is collective perception; all of us seeing the same world in tandem aka shared perception, and its shared world. Collective perception, aka Holy Spirit's perception sees things as they are without bias.

If you see all things as they are, that is, see with the eyes of the Holy Spirit, you see them as pointless and meaningless; if you see them with love you make them seem beautiful nothingness and if you overlook them you return to the formless world of God.

SPIRIT IS OUTSIDE BODY BUT PROJECTS ITSELF INTO BODY AND NOW SEEM IN BODY

Our individual and collective spirits are part of God and can be called the son of God; our true self is spiritual light; we projected that spiritual light into physical light but are not that physical light.

We used the physical light (invented during the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago) to form our matter based physical universe; we then project ourselves into the physical universe, as we do in our nightly dreams;  while we now seem inside matter, space and time, our bodies we are actually always outside our bodies, outside the physical universe.

At some point, we decided to experience life in bodies hence seem born inside bodies; to do so we forget that we are always outside bodies and are spirit.

In bodies we form ego separated selves, human personalities but outside body we do not have egos and personalities.

In our earthly selves there are differences; some are tall, some short, some thin some fat, some intelligent some dumb; on earth we are not the same and equal but in God we are the same and coequal.

In body we have perception and hope to develop objective perception, to see things as they are, not colored by our bodies; later, we overlook the physical world and see the world of light forms and, ultimately, experience the formless world of God.

MOST PEOPLE ARE IDENTIFIED WITH BODY AND ITS SEPARATED EGO

Most people are completely identified with the world of bodies and are at home in the world of bodies, matter, space and time; these are normal folks.

Occasionally, a person transcends the world of bodies and attains purified bodies, light bodies; fewer experience the world of unified spirit, God and his heaven.

Since the evolution of the universe, only a handful of people have actually experienced God while still on earth.  Jesus Christ was the first person to experience himself as one with God; he is now the world teacher of God teaching people on earth what they need to do to attain the world of light forms and eventually attain the world of unified spirit self.

Folks like Buddha, Ramakrishna, Ramana Maharshi and Bahaullah did momentarily experience unified spirit but are primarily in the world of light forms, at the gate of heaven, in the purified world.

If I am talking about these enlightened people and do so with authority what does that make me? You answer that question for yourself.

To be in the world of God is to be in the world of knowledge, the world of light; to be separated from God is to be in the world of darkness. Darkness here is defined as the world of ignorance, not knowing that one is part of God.

EVIL PERSONS LIVE IN THE WORLD OF DARKNESS; THEY ARE FAR FROM GOD'S LIGHT HENCE ARE IGNORANT OF THEIR REAL SELVES; TO BE SEPARATED FROM GOD IS TO BE IN HELL; EVIL PEOPLE ARE IN HELL

Evil persons are generally in the world of darkness; when, on earth, they die they return to earth and continue living in the world of darkness (upon death they do not even see the world of light forms before they return to earth...only loving persons see the world of light forms). They will be in the world of ignorance, self-forgetfulness until they give up their desire for separation and accept union with God and follow that up with love for all people.

AFRICANS ARE MOSTLY LIVING IN THE WORLD OF DARKNESS (EGO SELF FORGETFULNEES)

Whereas Africans talk a lot about God most of them live in the world of darkness; they do not have knowledge of God. This lack of awareness that they are one with all people accounts for their incredible self-centeredness, their lack of love for one another.

Africans see love as weakness and see ego as strength hence they live in the world of egoism where each of them wants to be the most powerful ego but does nothing to help the other egos he wants to admire him as mister big ego. The result of Africans pursuit of egoism is the chaotic world they live in, a world where politicians seek public offices to steal the people's money and ordinary people are kidnapers who kidnap people and hold them hostage for ransom money.

Love is not part of the African psyche. Africans must return to love for love is who all human beings are.

One of my jobs is to help Africans to understand the nature of God as love and help them let go of their clinging to ego separated self and begin to love all people; when they do, first, they would experience purified perception and eventually experience unified state, aka God.

AMERICA AND THE WORLD OFFERS EACH OF US THE OPPORTUNITY TO FIND HIS SELF

America in particular and the world in general offer each of us the opportunity to find himself. Most people are normal and find themselves as totally adapted to this world.

The normal self can find his earthly self as a physical scientist or medical doctor, or attorney, or journalist or engineer or politicians etc. The normal person is happy in his body and his ego and the egos separated world. As it were, he is fast asleep and has forgotten his real self, spirit and is happy in his false substitute self, ego separated self in body; he is, I hate to say it, closer to animals than to the son of God that in truth he is. You cannot awaken these people so leave them to have their dream of self-forgetfulness.

I found myself by realizing that the world is meaningless and that the beginning of the real world is the world of light forms and, ultimately, that there is the formless light world of God.

America and the physical world offered me the opportunity to find my real self (formless unified self).

Once you find yourself (normal or spiritual) you must live it 100%, 24-7; if you do so the world would consider you a successful person (from the spiritual perspective you would live in peace and happiness).
