I can’t do the double thumbs typing on my phone. I’ve tried, but no. It’s a single index finger, along with copious bouts of fury at the idiosyncrasies of predictive text. So it’s slow.
I do enjoy a challenge, though, and when the titular question was posed to me on WhatsApp last weekend, I couldn’t resist the challenge. Here, for anyone interested, is how the conversation went:
So I believe there is consciousness, OK? Loads of it, which permeates every portion of the universe.That consciousness could also be called spirit, energy, God, All That Is and many other things. Can you accept that?
Good. so this consciousness vibrates at an incredibly high frequency. Notice that the word ‘high’ there is not a synonym for good, holy, spiritual or any other value-laden stuff. It’s just a level of vibration. Got that?
Fine. Well as I understand it, at that highest level of vibration, the consciousness is a single thing – God or Oneness or All That Is. However it has the ability to step its vibration down. Just like an electrical current or the spectrum of light, as its vibration changes, it has different properties. Can you accept all that so far?
Phew, this is hard. OK, so imagine the vibration lowering just a bit. What happens then is that the Oneness separates out into individual parts. They are holographic, so still contain the highest level of vibration within themselves. It’s like saying that your brain is an individual thing but it’s still a part of you. Are you comfortable with the idea that at a slightly lower vibration, consciousness is differentiated into what we can call spirits or maybe souls?
I’m understanding what you’re saying.
Well the consciousness can continue to adjust and step down its vibration to lower and lower levels. Like musical notes, lower is not worse than higher, just different. Humans mostly don’t get that and associate higher with better. At each vibrational drop, consciousness becomes – how can I explain this? It becomes less identified with the Oneness and more identified with individuation. Does that make sense?
OK, so imagine we’ve worked through many of those lowerings and reached a point where the vibration is so far removed from the top, that the vibrational energy can form matter around itself. I mean encase itself in matter – a physical body – and create physical stuff like land and buildings and so forth around it. It is consciousness that creates all matter. The matter has no independent existence. Again, most humans can’t get that. Can you?
Great. So I’m now talking about consciousness at a human level. However there are different vibrational levels within humanity. It’s a matter of choice. Some of us opted to live very gritty, physical lives, cutting off almost all awareness of the higher vibrations. When they die, even those beings will return to high vibration, but for now, they’ve chosen to avoid it. Other humans retain some awareness of higher vibration, while fully engaged with physicality. Then there are the ones who have chosen not to get too caught up in being physical. Parts of it totally disgust them. Aspects of it overwhelm them and make them feel sick or anxious or uncomfortable. They struggle to get along in the physical world and feel more comfortable with thought and with non-physical aspects of existence.
I can see what you’re saying
So these higher vibrational humans are trying to do something very special and difficult. They are trying to bring high vibrational systems into physicality. This is the big new evolutionary step, not just for humans, but for All That Is. If we can successfully combine the two, we will quite literally have the best of all possible worlds. THAT is what mystics and spirit guides and so forth are guiding us towards. That is why psychic and metaphysical skills are so precious and wonderful. Now do you get it?
Good. I’m shattered. How did I do?
You conveyed your beliefs. I’m not saying I disagreed with them. I’m not saying I completely agree with it. I haven’t tried to form an explanation to the workings of the universe
Maybe you should start…
