Back then we were experimenting with the mind. There was a consensus that the mind was basically our identity. We believed that making everyone similar would bring a sense of equanimity and joy. Before that we worked on making all humans look relatively standard, physically, and biologically. Again, we thought standardizing everyone would just make life easier.
As a result the mind and body have been the subject of lots of hypnosis and overlays.
You may notice that even though people try to be unique in their own ways, for the most part they live lives of relative conformity. In fact in its extreme form, there are wars fought and lives lost in the name of wanting others to comply with a prevailing ideology.
And that desire dates back to a time when conformity was seen as a good thing.
Of course societies flow more smoothly when its citizens co-operate with one another and agree upon the same rules, social customs and laws. Otherwise getting through traffic could be deadly.
Standing in line for coffee could end up in in a wrestling match, rather than an orderly first come, first served fashion.
But what I’m referring to here is the idea that the mind is supreme, and there is no room for the soul. Back in Atlantis, we didn’t understand the concept of Spirit, or of having a soul or an eternal self. We were advanced technologically, but because we couldn’t go beyond the mental-based mind, it led to the inevitable downfall of Atlantean civilization.
What some of us have learned from that experience is that the mind, on its own, is unable to evolve. True evolution involves the acknowledgement of the soul.
Most major secular religions don’t really consider the importance of the soul. In fact as recent as a couple of centuries ago, if anyone claimed that they had a soul they could be seen as a heretic.
So even in religion, where there is a belief in a god outside the self, that god is perceived as a kind of mastermind. Otherwise why would such a god be attributed abilities like overseeing and judging billions of people, and either rewarding them or condemning them.
Those are fabrications of a limited mind.
The concept of reaping what you sow is true in the sense that if the mind believes strongly enough in sin and judgement, it will draw experiences of guilt and punishment.
Some of the greatest philosophers and psychologists have touched on the idea of the soul, but didn’t take it far enough. It’s one thing to philosophize about the soul and the existence of an eternal self, but quite another to embody it.
The expression, a one-track mind is interesting because the mind, by design has only one track. It experiences reality in a linear fashion, with a past, present and future, and it rarely spends time in the present.
During the ascension process, the mind is being integrated with a crystalline presence, which is the I Am. It’s not being left behind, and it’s not unappreciated. But it needs to evolve beyond its limitations. And it can’t do that without allowing the expanded self to be part of the deal.
People think that in ascension they become more intelligent. That they will be able to do amazing things with their mind. Like tap into information they are not aware of now.
But actually focus on intelligence can be a major distraction in this process. Trying to figure things out with the mind is going to backfire. Now we are beginning to trust in our innate divine intuition. Our esoteric senses. Which have been desensitized for a very long time.
So we are in the process of releasing the control from the mind. It’s the hardest thing to do. That’s because the mind has a storehouse of memory and data that it keeps retrieving in order to make choices and decisions.
The problem with that is in the new consciousness those stored memories don’t work. We are drawing our knowledge from an entirely different source. Now the mind will be assisting us, and still doing important functions, but not running the show.
It will take some time for the mind to relax and allow this process to unfold. It’s used to being in charge.
And it’s not really even just moving beyond the mind, but it’s allowing our expanded perspective to now come in and be present, with its wisdom and its abilities to manifest.
The human mind will be relaxing more into trusting that there is an easier way to create. Part of the standardized mind is its insistence that things should be complicated. It loves complexity and challenges. It kind of feels lost without something to solve, or to overcome.
There is a story of a class of graduate school science students who were given an equation to solve. The professor told them that, while there is a known solution to the equation, Very few are able to solve it.
He challenged them to try. But after a reasonable amount of time, not one of them was able to.
Then he brought a young junior high school student in and told him to try to solve the equation, but didn’t share that it was nearly impossible to solve.
He was able to solve it within a few minutes.
If the mind is told something will be difficult or impossible, it usually concedes because it’s conditioned to go back in its databank and retrieve anything that was also nearly impossible to do. And then apply it to the task at hand.
If a patient is told that his disease is easily healed with just a change of diet, or some medication, there is a good chance that they will be healed of that disease.
If another patient is told that the same disease is irreversible, and that they will just be able to manage the symptoms but not cure it, chances are that is what they will experience.
So the mind is a powerful tool but it can go only so far. If the discordant energies that created the imbalances are not resolved, then something else will just come up.
And the resolution is not within the mind’s domain. It’s a slippery slope when we try to overcome imbalances of a physical or emotional nature by using just the mind.
It’s why traditional psychology can go only so far. And it’s why psychiatrists prescribe antidepressants.
There is a phenomenon that happens when someone tries to process their issues through the mind. They dig themselves in even deeper into the quagmire.
There is an easier way. It’s just allowing the integration of the soul and the I AM with the mind and the body.
The mind will get restless and try to scare up some drama. That’s o.k. That too will get boring. Going beyond the standardized mind and into the knowledge of the I Am is not as impossible as it seems.
It requires being in the now moment. And in a 5th dimensional consciousness, in which there is no time and space as we know it, no yesterday or tomorrow, the now is no big deal. It’s a piece of cake.
The challenge is the mind is pulled into the gravity of thought of a 3D nature, and then we use that as our default for trying to create.
From the 3D perspective, the mind continues to push for results, or gives into defeating emotions. It’s a vicious circle. That’s why this awakening and transformation is going to require us to open up to the broader perspective of who we also are.
