Mirror, mirror on the wall, a phase from a famous Disney story, which is actually a perfect reflection of today’s culture we live in. A secret that has been kept for quiet a long time now and artificial concepts we have accepted as the one and only true reality, to mask the darkness we’ve created from the beginning of our civilization.
Nevertheless, we can say that this hide and seek game was in some way necessary from a deeper level of understanding and is here to give us a lesson to realize what’s the real purpose behind the visible and known, which is expansion of the human consciousness.
All the philosophical and spiritual traditions, from buddhism, hinduism, shamanism, Taoism and many more, any individual, who has the knowledge and wish to explore the inner dimensions of human psyche and other perceptions, knows that there are other layers of consciousness. All of them came to a realization that the outside world is just a reflection of the inner world, so if we want to change anything outside that we see in everyday life, we have to look within and see what’s there in the unconscious.
This can be seen in so many ways in personal and in impersonal life as well. We as humans like to project everything that is happening in the world to external circumstances, which actually don’t exist. It’s all just a mirroring from our inner worlds and layers of consciousness, and what is eventually manifested in the outer reality. So everything we see outside ourselfs, good or bad is actually a reflection. And when this is realized, the blame game we play here on this planet becomes somehow funny and stupid. For a human ego this is definitely the most hard thing to accept, becouse from this mind consciousness perception everything happens somewhere outside and there must be someone to blame. What we must take into consideration, is that from a larger perspective we are all one. There are no distinctions between anything we see around us, if we can just lose a grip from this thing we call our mind, which is full of prejudices, false perceptions, full of false beliefs, which we received early in our childhood.
There’s a universal law that says; As within, So without! And it’s a learning lesson to realize that you could not deepen your knowledge of the outside world without deepening your self-knowledge!
Today we can see a flood of many new age movements that put their focus solely to reveal the dark side of secret societies, hidden agendas and all the machinations from the new world order etc., which is good in a way to present an issue to a large group of people in order to rise awareness, but what this can bring along is a trap ego likes to fall in very easily. There is an unconscious temptation to be drawn in this conspiracy theories etc. just to avoid feeling our real feelings and to be present here and now in this moment. What is being overlooked here is the existence of collective unconsciousness which is fed by our own personal denial and manifests itself in this physical reality over and over again.
So as already being said, the only way we can move this forward is to go within and face our own inner reality, shift the energetic patterns we have created and denied in ourself. There really is no point to blame and to be angry at the world, becouse we just contributing to the pendulum swing of good and evil, which is just a polarity game, but ultimately two sides of one and the same coin!
Is this metaphor of Jin and Jang, two polarities that are one. If you go too far into the white you become the black. The universe is circular. There’s a really fine line between what’s here and what is there. And what is there is always reflecting itself from the core. So don’t put your hatred anywhere outside yourself, becouse you become that which you fight.
I like this quote from a spiritual teacher I know, that says; Your belief in evil is the measure of your ignorance. So there is always something that we do not yet understand, something we are very unconscious about. And this will continue to manifest itself in one or the other way, until we’ll finally realize what is behind the curtain of the invisible.
