Consciousness (Aware Energy or Energetic Awareness) is the Source and Substance of All That Is. How can we say that? Because, without Energy or the Power to Act, how can Awareness know and express itself? And, without Awareness, what acknowledges and creates a need for Energy? Doesn’t one need the other for ANYTHING to exist?
Here are some interesting thoughts. If we’re all unique, individualized expressions of Consciousness or Aware Energy, doesn’t it make sense that, ultimately, we must maintain some sort of balance for our minds, bodies and social unions to remain healthy enough to support us in material form? In material form, plant and animal, including human, populations must maintain enough of a balance to make life tolerable and even desirable to live. Too much disharmony or discord and relationships dissolve, individuals, plants and animals both, will prefer to die, to leave the material-world experiment.
Suppose you’re a millionaire or billionaire who acquires wealth from exploiting others instead of serving them. You value possession of money, power and privilege above all else. For you, life is about “survival of the fittest. It’s eat or be eaten, kill or be killed.” As a result, “enough is never enough”, and whatever you must do to get it, “the ends justify the means” in your worldview.
Is it not reasonable to believe that for every ruthless, obsessive millionaire and billionaire who wants to feel like the “king of the universe” there’s a Counterpart or alternate self, in this world or another, at this time or another, that experiences abject poverty and feels like a powerless nobody? Does the longing of the fearful, impoverished and powerless nobody create the psychological environment that supports the manifestation of the greedy, self-serving, real and want-to-be, millionaire and billionaire? Does the guilt and shame of the greedy, self-serving millionaire or billionaire create the psychological environment that supports the manifestation of the fearful, impoverished and powerless nobody? Does one extreme play off the other until understanding brings balance to both? Do we all serve as examples for each other?
In subjective or psychological terms, does it make sense to suspect that every individual, in order to maintain a healthy balance, must have personality fragments that serve as counterparts or alternate selves, all connected through a larger self or Over-Soul that seeks to maintain its own balance internally?(For more on the Over-Soul and alternate lives, read: The Ball of Light, a lucid dream about the nature of consciousness and being.) How can we know and appreciate one thing unless we know and understand its opposite? How can we know and appreciate the nature of love unless we know and understand the nature of fear and hate? How can we know and appreciate the nature of wealth unless we know and understand the nature of poverty? Why would we obsess over the nature of wealth at the expense of others unless we’ve experienced, or want to experience, the nature of extreme poverty and deprivation at the hand of others?
Doesn’t the same principle apply to extremes in any direction? When we seek titles and positions of power just to feel more important than others, instead of serving or helping them, do we create or become Counterparts who then suffer at the hands of those who seek titles and positions of power? When we choose to be males just to dominate females, do we become females in another life to learn what it’s like to be dominated by a male? There are no limits to the ways Aware Energy can express itself. During the course of even one lifetime, we can explore many different avenues of possibility to find a balance that works and makes us happy. Is Consciousness curious? Does it want to know itself in every way? I think so, what about you?
To be perfectly still or in perfect balance is to not exist. To know ourselves, we must act on our awareness. To move forward, backward or sideways we must voluntarily throw ourselves off balance to give ourselves reason to move. To think and solve challenges, we must voluntarily create tension to give us reason to think and grow in awareness. We look at the world around us and think all the action is taking place out there. Not true. Everything begins as awareness that turns into action the moment we say yes, no or maybe. We’re spiritual beings creating a human reality. As spiritual beings, we also create realities in dreams and visions in cooperation with other beings and aspects of Aware Energy. How we define ourselves and the world around us forms our intent, which, in turn, forms our reality. (For more on Consciousness and Being, read: A New Story of Origin)
As spiritual beings there is no right or wrong, good or bad; there just IS! There is what we like, and what we don’t like, what works for us, and what doesn’t, what makes us happy and what doesn’t. As we think, we create. Change what we think, and we change what we create. WE are the change we wait for.

“How you define yourself and the world around you, forms your intent, which, in turn, forms your reality.” – Seth
In other words, we create our own reality from what we choose to believe about ourselves, and the world around us, whether by attention or inattention.
If we don’t CONSCIOUSLY choose our beliefs, we UNconsciously absorb them from our surroundings.
If beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations create our reality, can we afford not to question them?
The more we love, understand and appreciate ourselves, the better we treat ourselves, and the world.
Make love, truth and joy the primary measure of your success.
The secrets of the universe lie hidden in the shadows of our experience. Look for them!
