Observing, from a detached position, the world of matter that we enter as human beings i.e. the universe or universal ‘plane’, one sees how we, as souls, create our lives and experiences. Through the law of cause and effect we constantly create our future, individually and collectively, immediate and long term, by our thoughts, actions and attitudes. This future includes our bodies, social environment, ecological environment, mental state, medical state and manner of death. Perhaps, in creating the Virtual Reality we presently create via computers we are subconsciously expressing this co-creativity through the conscious mind and technology. Virtual Reality seems almost real and technology will, no doubt, improve on this in time. We seem to experience what we create in this Virtual Reality. This is, of course, an illusion but an experience nevertheless. I am sure most of us would agree to this.
During a life, we, as a soul, experience the events that occur in the same detached manner as after the body dies despite the person feeling and experiencing these with the full impact of the senses. In this, the more detached the state of being of the soul/person (the entity) the less the experiences attach as ‘baggage’ to the subconscious to become an encumbrance later. This is because the life/lives we take on in this plane, and this plane itself, are not really what they seem; they are an illusion, or dreamlike, and not true reality. The only true reality is our state of being when we were created – our god state.
When we are dreaming, what occurs is very, very real as we all know and yet, on awakening, we dismiss the event as just a dream. However, the euphoria or horror of the dream is ‘real’ enough to remain with us for a variable period. When we are awake everything is very real too. Which is the true reality? When we leave our body our life here becomes the ‘dream’ and where we then are becomes the reality. When we reach full enlightenment, Christhood or full realisation, call it what we will, that is the only reality, and there is no dream of any sort. From our physical mindset, therefore, we create both the dream ‘reality’ and the virtual ‘reality’ with the latter more approximating the reality of former when technology is refined. In the manner in which the dream and the technologically created ‘reality’ are similar but not the same so is the similarity between “life in the physical” and our existence when not in the physical.
In constantly creating our future we create, as part of that future, the state of the health of our bodies. This happens through our attachment to our experiences in life, and the greater the attachment the greater the effect on the body. In other words, the more the ‘baggage’ the more the adverse effect on the health of the body and the mind, and it must be remembered that this ‘baggage’ may come from more than one life. ‘Baggage’ is attached to the mind that is not an integral part of the Self but only something acquired along the way, and the mind, from the Thought Field, through the Life Field creates the dis-ease in the latter, which in turn creates disease, and illness in the physical body. Conversely, altering the state of the mind by getting rid of ‘baggage’ and not taking on more, by being non-attached, dis-ease and its consequences cease to be. Of course, total detachment, total subduing of the mind, results in full enlightenment and, when we achieve this the necessity to enter this plane no longer exists.
Faced with any situation in life we are presented with options, from these options, depending on our attitudes and thoughts, we make a choice; if this choice creates stress this stress creates one or more of the following: a reduction in the efficiency of the immune system, headaches, muscular tension resulting in pain, digestive problems and so on. The possibilities are endless. Similarly, hate, sustained anger, an imbalance between work, relaxation and play etc. adversely affect mind and body. To further illustrate the point of creating our own future we can take the simple situation where we, say, slap someone and get slapped in return; or where deforestation is followed by floods and landslides. This is ‘instant karma’ and, perhaps more easily understood than effects that take longer to manifest. The active principle is the same.
