Yesterday, in my Intercultural Communications class I learned something that is very disturbing and helped me piece together this existence more
fully. The book teaches a widely accepted communications theory which states that our self-concept is formed by others. This would mean that we
identify ourselves through others’ judgment, opinions, and behaviors and become that. The initial example used was a child who was picked on at
school, called faggot, nerd, and any other creative name that would satisfy the cruel mind of a conformed school child. They told him he should kill
himself and he actually did.
So I said that I disagreed. I feel that the best way to grow is to establish a self-made self-concept in conjunction with others, instead of
conforming to an identity that may not be the true “you”. To me, it seems people consider their egos to be “them”. The ego is influenced by
others but that doesn’t necessarily form the self and we should be taught early in life how to separate the identity given to us from the identity
we should form. This class bothered me because everything the teacher said seemed to just accept this fact without really questioning it and the
students were being led to go along with it.
After this, we talked about symbolic interactionism Geroge H. Mead
states that humans are different from other animals primarily because of our ability to use symbolic language. After class, the subject stuck in my
mind. I then connected the human psyche in a profound (at least for me) manner which I will share. I think it gives me a nice glimpse into the
*This next section deals with Christianity, as that is the religion I know best. I am not claiming to “know-it-all” but the pieces to the puzzle
or slowly falling in place. From here on out, it may be a little hard to follow but try and bear with me because the information is good.
Picture the Holy Trinity
: God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
Picture the Human Mind
Ego, Subconscious, and the Higher Self.
Anybody who has studied alchemy would know that symbols rule our world. Even if you haven’t studied it, you’ve probably noticed all the symbolism
around us. Holy texts are no exception. They are full of symbols. For someone to interpret a book such as the Bible literally, without considering the
symbolic references is depriving themselves of the complete story meant to be understood.
With that said, the Holy Trinity is seen as all good because each of these “beings” is Holy and cannot do evil. This would mean that the human
psyche is Holy and cannot do evil. This is only true from the perspective of the self. To others, the acts may seem evil, such as the
deaths, catastrophes, and condemnations sent forth by God
; God justifies the end by
the means and declares himself Holy. We do not judge the Ego to be Holy. We do not judge the Sub Conscious to be perfect. We do not judge the Higher
Self because we cannot sense it in the “normal” physical world.
Our ego justifies its actions in the same way as God. It tells us that it is who I AM (which is the most Holy written/spoken name of
) or self-concept. When one looks at the saying
“The Devil’s biggest lie was that he doesn’t
and the story about how Lucifer tried to “take
God’s glory upon himself”
, things become a little clearer. If the ego pretends to be you, who many people believe to truly be them, the
“Devil” has fulfilled its role as trickster. You believe that the ego doesn’t exist because you believe it is actually your Self, or who you
are. The real concept of God (not the spoon fed symbolic and misunderstood version) encompasses all (see my thread
"Infinity Cannot Be Proven Using Finite Evidence"
). In Taoism, the
(or yin-yang symbol) is the Divine ONE, where two sides are only parts of a Divine Whole which cannot
be fully expressed in one part. I AM GOD does not delegate this role to the singular ego, which is why people who become enlightened are said to not
use the 1st person perspective when speaking, because the ego is not the I AM: it is only part of the I AM and when one learns to merge these two
concepts into their self-concept of the whole, they learn the Truth.
For this to be true, our Christian concept of God would actually take on the role that we conceptualize “Satan” to hold, but the Ego holds onto
its I AM and tells you the lie which is that it is God. When an enlightened person says “I am God,” it refers to the WHOLE being, which includes
more than a singular entity. The ego isn’t perfect to others just like our concept of “God” isn’t.
Alright, so who is “Satan”? Satan is the serpent, which can be venomous but can also be lulled into succumbing. This is a symbol for our control,
or as the case has been, lack of control of Knowledge. The agent of Satan, called Lucifer, was the bearer of light. Light is a symbol for Knowledge.
Knowledge blasphemes against the Ego, who has become the King (or God) of the Self. When Lucifer gave us the choice to learn Truth (free will to
choose/ duality) in the Garden of Eden, we took it and with it learned to evolve and become a more intelligent race instead of the slave race we were
meant to be.
Truth can be venomous just like the serpent. The Truth of Satan is that it is a part of Oneself. Lucifer is the knowledge that is needed to connect to
the knowledge of “God” by realizing the Higher Self. This is why Jesus called himself the
Bright and Morning Star
. Lucifer was also called
the Bright and Morning Star
(and his name is not only found in Latin, like some
disinfo agents want you to believe). They both brought Knowledge which was the connection to spiritual enlightenment; the bridge between physical and
Picture the Holy Trinity: God (who’s actually Satan), Jesus Christ/Lucifer (connection between physical and spiritual realms), and the Holy Spirit
Picture the Human Mind: Ego (posing as Self), Subconscious (Enlightenment/ Bridge to Knowledge), and the Higher Self (Enlightened State/ Real
The opposing sides of God/Ego and Satan/Oneself are imagined by a fear of the Ego losing control to the Higher Self but when the Ego and the Higher
Self merge, one becomes enlightened. Nothing inside the one divine thing is perfect and the Bible is trying to tell us that by saying that the many
followers of God are all sinners, yet make up the body of Christ. The only perfection is the WHOLE, which extends far above and below (alchemical
reference) our imperfect self-concept. In the big picture of the universe, we are so small we would not be seen and would be thought not to exist;
such as God. The realization that within and around, below and above us are parts of the whole Divine One (God) impacts the Self tremendously, making
the picture itself magnify (glorify) us as individuals and what we have to offer. Isn’t this what Satan did? The beginning and end. To be able to
sense this in our physical world, one would experience the Holy Spirit, or the Higher Self, which remembers Your past and moves you in accordance to
your path (in Taoism it’s called the “Way”).
I’m not saying that one is right and one is wrong because nothing in this dimension is absolute. Everything is a part of something else, as every
action has a reaction. Satan is just a symbol for the Ego just as God is a symbol for the Higher Self and they are both essential to life. The reason
these two symbols may have been mixed up is because God cannot be expressed. No writing can express Higher Self (God), you just have to come to Know
(Jesus Christ) by throwing away your Ego (Satan).
This is where “Control” comes into play. The Ego crucifies the Subconscious in order to Teach us how to love the Higher Self. TPTB utilize their
“God-like” control on the end to justify their means. Many people do fear the New World Order, because they want the world to change but they
don’t want to be controlled anymore. TPTB have put us through much # in order to teach us certain lessons along our millennial history. Religion was
the tool they used to control the means of our learning. But do any of us honestly know the ends? I mean, really? Even if religions had been perfectly
honest with us from the beginning, do you think people would’ve understood, or even tried to understand something so monumental?
I’ll admit, I feared the outcome of a New World Order for a long time, but I’ve come to learn valuable lessons about how our world works. There
will probably be a period of intense control after the “catastrophe” we feel is approaching actually gets here. This period won’t be long at all
compared to the time we will spend recreating a much better world order. In alchemy, there is a process that you must submit to in order to have a
worthy end creation or thought/plan.
Earth= the substance of the subject/ the facts
Water= how the facts connect with each other/ the fluidity
Air= why the facts contradict one another, yet are still parts of the same whole/ the confusion
(This stage takes the longest to complete…do you really know the outcome?)
Fire= the revelation of the whole and the parts job in the whole/ the process starts all over again
I don’t fear it anymore, because the only thing to fear is fear itself. I know that the first period will be riddled with tribulation, but the
afterwards will be worth it.
So the question is will you continue to let others determine your identity, telling you lies about the identity of who I AM, or will you learn the
Truth and continue forging your own “Way”? Will you stay in the past, or make your present a reflection of your plans for the future? Will you
“blaspheme” to continue the never-ending path of learning, or will you stay in the Garden of Eden content with the stagnant state of our
