Echoes of the Secret

There's a song I'd like to sing
But I don't know the words.

It goes something like this
Nobody knows how it is.

It's a place between philosophy
And everything that you can't see.

It's lovers and thoughts
A million years.

What would you say
If you knew.

You'd not know what to say
It's a secret on the wind.

You'd not know what to think
It's a mystery no one knows.

Oh umbrella, you open for me
Oh umbrella, show us what you see.
Oh umbrella, bind you and me.
To a show that goes on for eternity.

It's a stream that can't be found.
But for the one's who it's meant for.

They see the stream in the hearts
And it carries them to the worlds.

Home!  Home!  Home!
Have I found you?
Have I seen you?
Have I been you?

Do you know?
Do you know?
Do you know?
Do you know?

The Human Aura

If everyone could see auras (I personally do not though I am very sensitive to emotions and thoughts), the world's problems would probably be solved relatively quickly.  Auras are a field that surrounds people which are visible to a small percentage of the population and essentially consist of various color lights and shades of darkness.  Years ago I read a book describing what the colors of the aura meant.  That book was by William Walker Atkinson published under the pseudonym Yogi Ramacharaka called Fourteen Lessons in Yogi Philosophy and Oriental Occultism.  It's really too bad the new age wasn't built off his works rather than the more speculative works of Helen Blavatsky and the even more speculative works of later new age writers who turn the entire psychic phenomenon of the human experience into a phony party show with nonsensical superstitions.

The ability to see auras is actually quite real, I having met several people who could do it.  I even tested a friend of mine's abilities years ago with a blind scientific test to see if Ramacharakas descriptions of what the aura colors meant were accurate.  I would know my mood and what color I should be but told nothing to my friend about what the colors were supposed to mean.  He then gave me 100% accurate readings of the color of my aura which always matched the mood as Ramacharaka descried.  I did this probably a couple of dozen times with complete accuracy proving Ramacharaka's scholarship on the subject.

There are deeper levels of the aura that are even more complex.  I have met one person who could see into this layer of the aura and it's much more intense and complete energy field.  The aura is probably divided into several layers.  The layers Ramacharaka descried are most likely the lowest level of the aura and just give you the mood information.  Real psychics see at least this level and the really good ones see the deeper layers.  I believe there are at least three main levels to the aura around a single person.  I generally describe these layers as the etheric, astral, and causal auras currently.

A proper naming of levels of information concerning what can be read through psychic perception would include the primary levels of activity in terms of what can be known about an individual.  There should be seven layers altogether that can be accessed.  The etheric, astral, and causal (formally I called this the mental) correspond to the those three planes.  Above them must be, as I currently understand it (my most recent ideas), the kabbalistic (formally buddhic), angelic (formally atmic), and archangelic (formally adi).  These three levels of the aura would be more akin to what I call gridwork, a field of fractal psychic information available to those who have the patience to focus on it.  The gridwork is built of light lines, that which connects objects and fields in and through planes through the planes of interaction effect I have described in a few of my works. 

I don't recommend anyone really train in these areas of development unless they are born with the abilities concerning the layers beyond the causal.  They are frightening complex and the higher one goes up the chain of being and reasoning the more difficult it gets to read properly without some heavy negative energy.  Even the causal layer is difficult to deal with as it contains essential limitations of a human being within it.

As someone who is sensitive to feelings and thoughts (clairsentience/claircognizance) , it feels to me like layers of pressurized thought and resistance surrounding a person.  A human being's basic state of consciousness is very evident when one is sensitive.  People bring with them everywhere they go their built in attitudes, thoughts, and biases.  This stuff literally surrounds someone immediately telling you what they are really like internally.

Those internal attitudes are visible as colors and hearable as sounds to those who have the clairvoyant and clairaudient gifts.  The visible aura is the one described by Ramacharaka.  The more of these abilities one has activated, the more difficult it is to stay focused when in the presence of others.

According to what I have learned the aura reading ability can be activated by various means.  Yet one's life must be balance to do this.  The safest way to activate the aura according to those I have learned from or read about is to do fasting and focusing until that ability activates.  It is best to do so in a group of those of like mind about it and of good naturally happy dispositions.  That is a difficult thing to find at this time in human history unfortunately.  Yet if the more sensitive among us do not activate ourselves at some point, the world will be left in the hands of the politicians and those who are completely blind to this facet of human experience.

Since the human aura to me is a scientific and physical phenomenon (related to both the human magnetic field and dimensionality (planes of consciousness created by transdimensional physics)), one does not even have to believe in God/Goddess in order to have the experience of any psychic phenomenon really.  Perhaps it is best proven in this way that indeed there is a greater reality than one would wish to believe in.  It is probably more rewarding that way as well.  But the truth is that one has to be open minded to really see what is real and what isn't.

Conventional thinking interferes with the unbiased truth reflected in the aura.  We are taught to divide our thoughts and feelings with opinion.  We are told to form biases from an early age.  We are taught to analyze everything.  Part of this is the problem with our scientific education.  It encourages us to look at the world through the lens of language and to see the world as a series of parts.  The more we look to analyze the world, the less we see of what is intuitively already there.  It's as if we were taught not to look essentially.  Then we are taught to label everything, and our entire social system does this constantly.  Everything has a label with a meaning attached. We are taught to hate certain groups and like other groups.

Every time those messages get in our head we forget a little more of the real fact that humans are fully capable of reading situations using their natural born gifts if they are activated.  If we all saw what was is in each other, then the ability to lie would vanish.  Yet to do so would require everyone to be open to the possibility of actual being seen, heard, and felt as they really are, not as they wish to project.  This would be very difficult for the vast majority of people to deal with as their attitudes would be on the table.  And as long as they identify with those attitudes and not with the possibility of being part of something more, the ability to see those auras and live as we were meant to be will be a distant possibility of a future that no one knows.  But of course, one day it all has to come true.

Listenening: The Protocols of Honor

By the deepest concepts of culture are we made whole.  But to get there we must find out first what culture is and why it matters.  From the point of view of the primitive, culture is irrelevant.  That is the problem with primitivism which is the state of nature as it exists in the minds of humans that live without any notion of honor or ritual.  This is the essential difference between that which is primitive and that which is cultured.  A cultured individual has a protocol and honors that protocol.  A primitive has no protocol and honors only his or her whims. 

Here I must state the fundamental basis of all protocol for the record of the collective that requires it.  Protocol is based on principle. Principle is rationality through sacrfice by means of deference to any Ideal, Virtue, person, or thing, but specifically it is the grounds of one's argument.  When any philosopher speaks of principle they usually are referring to ideal principle. Ideal Principle is the perfect image of an abstract principle fully conscious as a platonic form.  Virtue is most often the emotionally centered reality of any principle in action through the changes it induces in others by it's transformational capacity as a living essence surrounding a single actor (she or he that acts), most specifically a person from our point of view.

There is, as I have stated before in my Philosophy of Knowledge notes, a natural hierarchy of prioritization which exists that influences the deliverance of conscience through values, desires, principles, duties, virtues, and even conscience itself.   That hierarchy is constructed by individuals naturally in the course of their lives as they discover what it is that motivates them to take any actions.  As such it is primarily the ground of reasoning of Formal Moralism and used by Formal Moralists to justify their own actions as part of the accounting of personal argument.

But beyond this reasoning lies the other, who is or is not aware of any of this.  Communicating with the other requires that one understand that all just communications are based upon the notion of Transactions of Honor.  Roughly stated a transaction of honor in the field of communication is the idea that one listens in return for the right to speak and vice versa that one speaks with the intention to listen to the response. 

Here we must get into the nature of honorable communications and just honoring of the other and the self.  Listening is followed by listening.  A speech is worth a speech.  A thought is worth a thought.  This natural transaction of experiences and minds is the basis of the protocol of honor.  Since everything begins in communication, we begin here for those who wish to participate in Honor Culture which is the culture of true wealth. 

The self is revealed in stages to the other based on interest.  Questions and answers form the basis of the transaction of relationship.  Actions taken are the measure of the value assigned to the relationship.  Each action is met with an equal and opposite reaction until full intimacy is achieved.  That full intimacy is one of friendship, the true measure of all intimacy.

Not all want to participate in this transaction as they would prefer to only think or talk of themselves or spread rumors.  As such the world is divided between those that practice honor and those who do not.  There are commandments unwritten that govern the entire cycle.  Beyond this stage, there is living in the moment to total connection with the stream of conscience that surrounds us at all times.  

This is a very short introduction to a very complex and elaborate truth about perfectly honoring the experience we are having as people specifically with relation to ourselves, other people. the planet, and by extension the universe.  Honor culture does not end at people and things.  It extends into the honoring of any tradition of communication with any hypothetical reality one has heard of.  As such one's relationship to ideas, methodologies, and hypothetical non physical beings are included.  Included in this is one's relationship to skepticism and doubt as well.  Honor is a very, very complex beast. 

Very much of our extended lives are tied to what we honor in ourselves and in others.  The subtlety of existence is defined by that experience internal to ourselves.  While the majority of our experience is the honoring of our gross selves, the body and it's needs, the rest of our experience collectively is determined by the nature of how we honor everything else about everyone else including the abstract notions of being and beyond that, for those that have it, the psychic perceptions of the those gifted of conscious subtly in it's many various forms.  The set of all the possible combinations of this conundrum is the basis of formal study of Mystery, Art, Music, and Kaballah. 

The essential question is what makes us different from each other from the point of view of the universe or Goddess and God depending on your point of view.  When we try to understand someone we look at the whole of their experience, the whole of what they know, the whole of their choices, the strength of their conviction, the strength of their character, and the physical strength of their body.  Their identity determines their viewpoint.  Their potential and their intention determines what the Oracle can and can't tell them.  The choices they are offered are a part and parcel of those offering those choices and their stories as well.  As you can see to honor all of that is something truly magnificent and time consuming for those doing the honoring.  As such we honor those closest to us.  Such is the way of things.

Again there is one road deeper than this that I have learned from another further along the path than I.  This road takes us into the emotion itself as experienced through the whole of the breath into the lifestream of consciousness as it is lived.  Here, the protocols of honor still exist, but they become secondary to the experience of an inner guidance that is beyond what is normally experienced.  Here listening becomes a skilled fused with full human consciousness honed to create an experience called Natural Synastry,  A person who has this experience is free of the need for formalism and becomes the living embodiment of the Virtues for others.  Jesus was the greatest of these examples of those who truly managed to see past the need for transactions of honor to arrive complete honoring through pure consciousness through embodiment.

But the need for honoring remains to the extent that it is necessary to consider the perspectives of all.  The world cannot avoid the full honoring of every other and simply jump into Natural Synastry.  Before Natural Synastry is the astrologically timed Unnatural Synastry as well which is the honoring of the cycles of existence as interpreted through astrology.  Some elements of Unnatural Synastry can also be found in lesser forms of divination such as tarot.  But the problem of character emerges when these interpretations clash with the Natural Synastry of the awakened person who will not simply allow an interpretation to be the decider of their fate.  This is a tricky ground for the reader and the querrant (the person getting the reading) alike.  

Protocols of honor extend to all these fields of endeavor.  Perfecting them allows one to read or interpret perfectly.  Failure to create a protocol of honor in the absence of the necessary psychic and/or mental gifts necessary for Natural Synastry creates disturbances in the consciousness of the self and others.  Further refinement is always required.  Perfect readings lead to perfect outcomes.  It is possible but requires learning and an acknowledgement of imperfection.  Yet this is all part of the greater picture of honoring choice and honoring methods of ordering action.

Who is it that one must follow when one is not sure?  This is a great question of both the advisor and the advisee.  We all wish to speak with an authority on this matter, but at times we find ourselves puzzlingly enough as the authority seeking advice from others on the question of our own authority to decide.  Most don't care enough to test their own limits, to ask themselves where they should stop and seek the advice of others.  But as luck would have it sometimes they stumble upon someone both competent and honorable to the art and the other person alike.

A massive subject is this thing we call honor.  Honor is not a perfect measurement of our selves, but an acknowledgement of our imperfection without the other.  There are limits of course, for honoring one's self is required as part of the idea of honor or honor itself is destroyed by it's opposite dishonor.  The balance is delicate and requires experience to teach us the limits of this methodology of culture.  But as long as civilization exists and as long as there are those who wish to remain civilized, we'll be hearing a great deal more about honor in the years, decades, centuries, and millennia to come.
