Esoteric Online

There is a common thread in the symbolism of the lifting of the veil ritual in Freemasonry, to the illusion of shadows on the wall of Plato's Cave, to the Sanskrit word Maya, meaning illusion and to the word Apocalypse, meaning to reveal or unveil hidden knowledge to an elect few. The words esoteric and occult both imply there exist a hidden knowledge.  Esoteric from the Greek literally means "pertaining to the more inward". The term is mentioned by Plato in reference to Pythagoras having an inner group of initiates or the esoteric and and outer group of the uninitiated or the exoteric. The knowledge that is hidden and only gained by the initiated is Gnosis. What does this all mean? 

Particle Physicists might give us some insight into what this Gnosis is.

"Reality is an illusion, albeit a very persistent one" Albert Einstein

"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real." — Niels Bohr

"All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force... We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter."- Max Planck

“The quantum theory of parallel universes is not the problem, it is the solution." David Deutsch quote

So it seems that on a quantum level reality is not fixed or solid, which means that it is a hologram or projection of sorts. Coming to this realization is not easy. The distractions of our perceived reality convince us of their realness. To counteract these distractions we can make affirmations like this one;
"If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things." Rene Descartes
Ask yourself the question, What is real. This world is packed full of delusions. There are Religions, Political Parties, TV, Advertising, manipulated histories, that all espouse contradictory truths. Most people live in these delusions.  Do you believe we went to the Moon? Why are we told that the Pyramids form across the globe are not connected???  Building 7??? There is a Caduceus  in the dollar sign. Why? Who cares, it is a delusion.  So, you might ask, are depleted uranium munitions a delusion?  I do have a hard time with that one. It is just part of the Hologram? Go back into your lotus position, and it will go away.
So who is controlling this freak show.  Is is a collective delusion? Is it and individual delusion? I think it is a bit of both mixed with the conscious mind of the Universe. We are actors in a great dream. The dream is a program. The program can be navigated into alternate time lines, based on collective and individual intent. There are many yous and many mes in many different realities.  So, how the fuck did we get here, on the cusp of environmental, economic meltdown(pun intended).  How can we navigate into a more peaceful, just reality? Or is this just part of the script.  I sure wish those Gods/ET's would come back and make things right.  My intention is focused on a serpent rope worm hole opening in the sky.  
What is the Gnosis?

Lately, I am having more and more lucid dreams. I realize that I am dreaming in the dream and can change it or switch dreams.  I have been thinking that this could also apply to reality.  We simply need to realize that reality is like a dream.  

This past weekend, I went hiking and camping. I packed a bag for the weekend and put it in the car. Right before I left, I threw a pair of jeans and shirt in the back of car, just in case.  When, I got to the destination, my bag was empty except for a pair of boots. The jeans and shirt were no where to be found.  I wore the same cloths for three days.  I got home and all the cloths were on my kitchen table. I could doubt that I ever packed any cloths, but remember packing upstairs in my room, where the laundry is.  I also put extra cloths in the car.  My wife thinks I am crazy, but I think I am being told that reality is not fixed.

In quantum mechanics, particles change behavior based on observation as seen in the wave particle duality of the double slit experiment and the uncertainty principle.

"Heisenberg uncertainty principle states In layman's terms, the more precisely one property is measured, the less precisely the other can be controlled, determined, or known". In terms of Schrodinger's cat, the cat both dead and alive.

The thing I ponder is, if the masses of humanity are caught up in propaganda and dogma, then their intent is being controlled.  If the controllers of the dogma are  Good Shepherds, then this could be good and the dogma that they are being given is a teaching aid to help develop their consciousness. It could be bad if their intention is being controlled by a self serving force. Consciousness needs a context in which to exist. A context/reality consisting of duality is kind of like a Skinner's box. If we can learn not to be duped into believing the dream is real and not allow our egos to guide us, we can find our way safely out of the maze. We need to trust our own intention.

 Just one more thought upon further meditation, I love the idea that reality does not exist without an observer. In order for reality to be known , we, you, I , someone or something must observe it or experience it. Therefore, we are the gods of reality, for without us, it has no life.

Very Nice post, Will. I love to scatter my thoughts in to the winds of what is real and what is not. I tend to write my own reality. I am a believer in the self fulfilling prophesy. I know enough negative people and have seen the consequences of negative thinking on them, to truly understand how i can make my place in this world a little better everyday.

Some days I do feel like a slave to reality though. I admit that my bills are reality, I cant dream them away. I have just learned to manipulate what inner freedom I have. The control of exterior reality cannot control what I do inside, inside I am..
