This diagram illustrates the process of thinking, and the alternative process of Intuition.
One’s Intuition is an aspect of ones Spiritual dimension, and has nothing to do with intellect, or thinking. Notice it by-passes the thinking process entirely.
Thinking, on the other hand, begins in the Higher MIND, and is largely based on one’s Fate Karma [that one came into the Earth plane to work through]. Also involved in thinking is what I refer to as the “DM=SI,” or Defense Mechanism equals Subtle Insanity.
And, although we ‘think’ we have “free will,” what we actually have is a “conditioned free will,” which means we are constantly operating like actors on a stage [acting out a part we wrote ourselves — based on what Karma we wanted to work on in this lifetime]. And the other players that come onto the stage are bit players that LIFE has arranged to be part of the play we designed. This is precisely what Shakespeare spoke of.
From time to time, each of us experiences something akin to Deja vu, or a sense that we have somehow experienced some situation previously? This is a vague memory of a prior experience that we did, indeed, experience, and we are now currently re-playing that experience in hopes of “Completing the Karma we created in that previous event”.
The Genius of God in establishing the Law of Karma is that it normally operates in a way that we rarely even notice that it is a repeat of some previous event. And the mercy of God is that we are allowed to keep repeating past events until we finally realize that what “caused” the event is our own previous actions, and that we need to “Accept” responsibility for what we are experiencing, and to forgive all the actors,including ourselves.
This is what Christ meant when he said do not judge, and when a person slaps you one one cheek, turn the other cheek as well.
In other words… try to accept responsibility for the event, and forgive the people involved. Very often quite difficult to do!
