Cause and effect are intertwined. Perception and what I appear to see are interrelated. Therefore, in relation to the idea from yesterday, I am not in solitary confinement in experiencing the effects of my vibratory, magnetic thoughts. As each has a calibration in consciousness, so does the thought waves of other people affect me as mine do to them. Once again, it is worth emphasizing that my mind matrix is not limited to an alienated personal mind. Though I resist the idea, and think that this means I have enormous resulting responsibilities, I must not be fooled into believing I am powerless or that I cannot effect the outcome of what I seem to perceive. I am a creator at One with the Mind of God and at One with the entire Sonship of brothers and sisters in spirit.
However, I chose to make, project outward, and distort reality with my disturbed and disordered thinking. I am not alienated from other personal minds, because there is only one mind, and only one ego mind appearing to be many. I must accept that I have no thoughts apart from other seeming individual minds, which again are fragments of the One Mind. Private thoughts are non-existent.
Though this fact relates to content, it does not necessarily relate to form. I don’t necessarily know the thoughts of other individual, subjective minds, nor have the same exact thoughts, but we are all contributing to the creation of form that shows up in the world on the same level. So, my chitta (feelings) and vrittis (fluctuations of the mind) are really interrelated to those of other individual ego-ahamkaric bodies, but are only the same in that they reflect the original egoic-ahamkar separation from Oneness. I may resist this at first, but I must eventually accept that I am not really limited to an individual, small, separate self. Moksha-Liberation from the thought that I am an individual self, separate from the Christ Mind, the Atman and Buddhic Self is possible and it will happen. I need but let it occur, by surrendering all my preconceived ideas that what I think only affects my individual self.
I make the attempt to master today’s idea by closing my eyes and repeating today’s idea, that I am not in solitary confinement in experiencing the effects of my vibratory, magnetic thoughts. I then observe thoughts entering my mind. I name each thought, recognizing its theme or the individual it relates to. Then I hold it in my mind and say, “I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my vibratory, magnetic thoughts about ________. I will continue to select random subjects, though I will not be further reminded to do this daily from now on. But there needs to be some order to scanning the thought and perception process to allow for miracle mindedness to occur.
Three or four exercise periods are sufficient. Aum. Shanti. Peace. Amen.
