A lengthy short-story by Brother James
Interesting question… Or, just another unknown to deal with? It is both!
I hope it is of interest to a great many people because the Astral Region and the MIND are one in the same thing! Now, that should be a surprise to almost everyone! Especially [I’m sorry to say] to those mental health professionals trained in “BS&bp” [Behavioral Science and the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’].
You see, the Whole Human Being, or WHB [which means all human beings], is composed of four simultaneously existing, and yet, entirely separate vibrational dimensions, each of which has its own reality.
From outside going inward, we have: The physical dimension [body, brain and physical senses]; the Astral dimension [the Lower MIND]; the Causal dimension [the Higher MIND]; and the Spiritual dimension [the Soul and its invisible operations].
For those who learn better via ‘seeing,’ let me provide a simple illustration.
The Soul, composed of at least the following aspects or elements [Intuition, Knowledge, Conscious Awareness or “C-Awar”… which is where Knowledge is stored], which is accessed via ones faculty of Intuition.
The MIND is composed of two parts. One is the Higher MIND, and the other is the Lower MIND. I refer to both using the symbol , which stands for all operations of the MIND of Man – both Lower and Higher… and like the Spiritual operations of Man, the mental operations are also invisible to Man. However… the results of these operations, when they manifest on the physical level, are referred to as “symptoms”. And these symptoms are types and kinds of behavior that are physical phenomena we can observe using our physical senses.
And no, people have no idea what is causing them to do what they do?
You see, or perhaps you do not “see”… the brain “cannot” perceive the operations of the (“-M-“) except when these are manifested as symptoms!
And, since BS&bp [or modern mental health] has no idea what is causing people to do what they do, we have a serious problem in America, and around the world, regarding our condition of mental health, psychology, and in recent years in psychiatry as well.
The ONLY WAY to discover the (“-M-“) is from “Within” the (“-M-“) itself !!! Quite a paradox, isn’t it?
And, since the brain is incapable of perceiving the (“-M-“) , how can someone who has not been trained to “Exper-tuit” the (“-M-“), discover what is wrong “Within” the (“-M-“) by use of the brain?
“Exper-tuit” ? This is a symbol I have recently coined to stand for a unique form of experiencing that Man is capable of experiencing… if a person is Enlightened enough to do so?
And now we begin to separate people like grains of wheat from sheaf, which is called straw. Some people possess Souls that are more Enlightened than other Souls. And if this disturbs your notion that “all Souls are the same,” I’m sorry. But we must deal with the Reality of Life when we deal with the actual Psychology of Man.
And that means we must accept that not all Souls are the same… in terms of how Enlightened a Soul is, or where one’s Soul resides upon the “Ladder of Life”.
You see, when we Souls all came into the Creation [as reported by generations of Mystics], we were all the same. But, from that point of entrance onward, we Souls began to act and mature as individual Souls.
This might be a good place to introduce a new concept for most people. I refer to this concept as “Neutral Spiritual Energy,” or the symbol “NSgy”.
I believe NSgy is the Energy of God, and it is also the primordial Energy of Existence. NSgy has no equal nor counterpart. It is an Energy unto itself, and exists alone as the ONLY Reality of an Existence that mankind perceives as a dark void, or “nothing”.
This void is referred to in Genesis, in the Bible. It is visible when you shut your eyes.
We Souls are aspects of that NSgy, and “Within” each living thing in the Creation is a “Soul,” that is also composed of NSgy. And to reinforce what I just said… I said that EVERY LIVING THING IN CREATION has a Soul. It is the Soul that provides “life” to everything that is “alive”. The moment a Soul departs a form, that form “dies”. However, the Soul shifts into its Astral form, and exists in the Astral realm as itself. I refer to that “self” as “Conscious Awareness,” or “C-Awar”.
I believe “C-Awar” is what Renee Descartes was searching for when he settled for “I think, therefore, I am”. Which was strictly confined to his brain and the physical dimension of Man, thus leaving three other dimensions unaccounted for?
Alas, philosophy has yet to figure this out, as it continues searching in the dictionary for some indication of a Truth that ONLY exists in the Spiritual dimension.
Back to the “symptoms” of a conflicted (“-M-“). The “evidence” of a conflicted (“-M-“) are observable symptoms that strike a reasonable person as peculiar, odd, bizarre, or harmful to self or others.
Although, let us be very clear about this… all these symptoms are CAUSED by a person’s (“-M-“), and the vast majority of people have no idea what is causing them to do the things they do not want to do, or would prefer not to be doing!
And modern mental health, or BS&bp [which does not believe in the (“-M-“)], insists that the people who are seeking help… are all just playing a game of refusing to take responsibility for what they are doing.
BS&bp is, in other words, shamefully abusing those people who are brave enough, or desperate enough, to seek help from people who are just as confused as they are! The result is a disaster and a rising increase in suicide as the world becomes more evil.
Why would any sane person not believe in the (“-M-“) of Man? Primarily because a scientist named B.F. Skinner, in the early 1900s, did not believe in a (“-M-“) because his own (“-M-“) protected him from having to deal with his own (“-M-“) by feeding Delusional Thinking to the Left-Hemisphere of his brain which caused him to “think” that he had discovered a new kind of “psychology,” he labeled ‘behavioral psychology’.
And I label it BS&bp. And BS&bp is an oxymoron.
The term “psyche” is Greek, and the ancient Greeks defined it as “Self, Soul, and Mind,” or the Esoteric or invisible aspects of Man.Psychology combines ‘psyche’ with ‘logy which means a “study of the psyche of Man”.
There is no mention of behavior because the ancient Greeks were wise enough to realize the inside invisible dimensions of Man could not be studied by observing the “behavior” of Man.
But then, those people who are confined to Intellectualism, or use of the brain while avoiding all emotion, do not realize they fear the unknown nature of emotionality. And they pride themselves on being able to live a life devoid of emotionality. Sadly, they fail to realize their “condition” of Intellectualism locks them away from being open to the Esoteric [invisible] three-quarters of themselves. They are quite cut off from both the (“-M-“) and the Spiritual dimension “Within” themselves.
I refer to such people as “Intelack” type individuals. That is, people with immature Souls, and lacking in Conscience, or my symbol “C’etc” [which stands for the Virtues of Life]: Conscience, Discretion, Knowledge, Attention and Empathetic Understanding.
The sad truth is, those people in denial of, or whose Souls are not “ready” to awaken to, the Esoteric dimensions and operations taking place “Within” themselves have no idea they are in denial of anything? They firmly believe there is nothing about Man that the brain cannot “know”.
What is amazing, is that modern mental health, or what I refer to as “BS&bp” [Behavioral Science and the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’]… because it is in denial of the Esoteric dimensions of Man, draws to itself thousands of Intelack type individuals who are deathly afraid of the unknown “Within” themselves. And these people intellectually earn degrees and are licensed as “psychologists” because they “know” nothing about Psychology.
“What unknown is that,” you might ask?
I am speaking of the (“-M-“) and Spiritual operations taking place “Within” the Whole Human Being. You know…. those elements of Man that, when in conflict… CAUSE people to engage in unwanted and self-damaging behavior!
What’s the answer? Proper training conducted by properly trained people, of course. What chance is there this will occur? About zero chance, I suspect.
Peace, Brother James
