It is a simple fact that you cannot manifest in the physical, that which you cannot visualize in the mind. If you have no higher vision, you cannot manifest anything higher and this is where the material universe can become a closed loop that traps people for a very long time.
The Alpha and Omega of vision
You grow up as a child seeing what is around you, seeing what you perceive through the physical senses. More than that, you are brought up – programmed – to perceive through the collective mindset that looks at life a certain way. This mindset goes all the way from the physical through the emotional, mental and into the identity realm. Most people on earth think they are human beings. They may think they are somehow created by a deity, but they see that they are separated from that deity. They are brought up to believe (especially in the Catholic tradition) that they are sinners or fundamentally flawed or limited beings. Or they may have been brought up to believe that they are a product of the process of evolution and therefore have no capabilities beyond those of the physical body and whatever technologies can be created.
If you identify yourself as such, you already have set limitations for what you can and what you dare envision. There is a dual effect of vision. First of all, you have to be able to actually visualize in your mind that it is possible to create something that you do not already see on this planet. This is the Alpha aspect of vision. You have to be able to see something that no one has seen before; you have to be able to see in your mind’s eye what you do not see with your physical eye. The Omega aspect of this is that you have to be able to not only believe but actually accept and know that it is possible to build or manifest this physically.
There are many, many people throughout the ages who have had grandiose visions in their minds. They have been enamored with these visions, but they have not truly believed and accepted that they could be made physical. This is where people need to wake up and realize that there are forces and beings in this world who are doing everything they can to limit your vision, by limiting what people can see but also limiting what they believe and accept can be manifest.
How to communicate a higher vision
In the modern age, we have – due to the release of certain communication technology – made tremendous progress in terms of being able to communicate a higher vision from one person to another. If you go back just a few decades, or a few hundred years, you will see that there may have been one or two people on earth who could grasp a higher vision, but how could we get that vision communicated from that person to others so that more than one person could begin to believe that there was a higher reality somewhere? This really did not become practical until the printing press was invented.
With more and more modern communication technology it has become easier and easier. We now have a situation where there is indeed a number of people on the planet who have their minds opened and attuned to higher awareness. They can receive a higher vision of some aspect of society that could be improved. We actually have enough people in embodiment that are able to receive a higher vision. Those people do not all know about higher awareness, they do not understand or acknowledge where their visions are coming from.
We actually have enough people who have enough of a vision to receive the major blueprint for the Age of Higher Awareness. This is a development that has taken a very long time to build. In fact, if we go back just to Jesus’ mission, we can say that from his mission forward, there has been a very slow growth in the number of people who have been able to manifest a higher degree of awareness Of course, the Christian tradition is not the only one that has raised people’s consciousness, for there are also other traditions that have raised people’s consciousness over many lifetimes, to the point where they can receive a higher vision.
The effect of the multitude of ideas
The manipulators have, of course, all along tried to limit this. They have in many ways tried to limit communication, to restrict communication, to censure communication. For example, during the Catholic era there was a censorship of books. Books were burned, people were executed or hauled in front of the inquisition for spreading heretical views. You saw the same in the Soviet Union, you see it today even in Russia, you see a similar development in Turkey, you see it in China, North Korea and many other nations.
The manipulators have not been able to stop the growth in the number of people who could receive a higher vision. What have they done instead? Well, there is one thing you can always count on from the manipulators: They don’t stand still. Some of them do, some of them do become trapped and become attached to maintaining a certain state of privilege. That is why they become the established power elite that are overthrown by the aspiring power elite. In general, the manipulators never stand still as a group. There will always be someone who is looking ahead, looking to counteract higher awareness.
Given that they could see that they could not stop the spread of new ideas, the communication of new ideas, what did they do to counteract this? Well, they took over the minds of a number of people, and then they gave their own versions of different visions, very fanciful, very complicated, very complex—some of them seemingly very benign. Then they have used the same technology that is used to spread genuine ideas, to spread their false ideas. The result is that there are now so many ideas out there that most people feel completely overwhelmed. They don’t know what to look at, they don’t know what to believe.
Destroying people’s faith
You have seen a very interesting phenomenon that has been recognized by very few people, namely, that as the number and complexity of alternative visions has grown, more and more people have started looking at this as complete fantasy. The people who are into this mindset lump it all together and say: “This is all fiction, this is all fantasy, we don’t need to take any of it seriously.” What is the result of this? It is that the manipulators have blocked the Omega aspect of vision, namely people’s ability to accept that a certain vision could be made manifest.
They have also been very clever at using science and technology to promote a mindset that the only solution to humankind’s problems is a technological, mechanical solution. This you see promoted especially through materialism, but also through many aspects of business and the scientific research community, people who are making their living, or making their profits, off of researching mechanical technology.
This means that there is also a large group of people who believe that if any vision is presented that something could be brought forth in a way that is not technological or mechanical, then that vision is just fantasy. It is completely unrealistic, it is something that can be fun and entertaining to read about but it could never be manifest. People write it off as mere flight of fancy when, in reality, it in some cases is the vision of the Age of Higher Awareness. You have this very difficult situation right now in terms of vision. It is not a lack of ideas that is the problem anymore, as it was in past ages. It is the over-abundance of ideas and the lack of belief that ideas could be made reality, that thoughts could become things.
If there was one thing that could bring a contribution to this, it would be that people would change their view of new ideas and that they would come to acknowledge that not all new ideas should be written off as fantasy. It is necessary for them to develop a certain discernment so they can see, so they can know within themselves, which ideas are realistic and which are not.
Writing off new ideas
You, who are the more aware people, you can much more quickly develop this discernment. We are, of course, looking for you to do this so that you can again be the forerunners and help raise the collective consciousness. The way you can increase your discernment about ideas is to realize that you cannot truly discern the validity of a vision or idea by using the intellectual, analytical mind. In fact, in order to truly know the validity of an idea, you need to neutralize the intellectual mind.
The intellectual mind will immediately look at a certain vision in a specific way. Say you present a new type of democracy that is a more direct democracy. The intellectual mind will immediately look at the idea and it will compare it to current conditions. It might say: “This idea is too far beyond current conditions, it is not realistic that it could be manifested.” It may also be that the intellect will say: “Well, if this idea was to be manifested, then we of course need to start at current conditions and we then need to create a linear sequential process that, in a mechanical step-by-step way, leads from where we are right now to where this vision says we could be.”
This is the only way the linear, analytical mind can think; it can only think in linear cause and effect. Of course, the linear mind is also very focused on the physical; what changes need to be manifest in the physical for this vision to come about. If the linear mind cannot see a way to do this – perhaps because the technology has not yet been invented – it will reject the idea as unrealistic. In other words, the analytical mind starts with current conditions and then it thinks: “Is the vision realistic based on current conditions?”
If your starting point was the technology and the living conditions that existed in the iron age over a thousand years ago, how could anyone believe that a modern jet airplane was a realistic manifestation? How would you ever breach the gap – if you had only seen what people could see in the iron age – and think it was possible to create a machine that would fly through the air?
If you had presented the vision of an airplane to people a thousand years ago, they would obviously have written it off as completely unrealistic. It is the same today. There is a mechanism in the linear mind that says: “If we cannot see a linear, sequential process that leads to the fulfillment of the vision in a mechanical way, then the vision is unrealistic and we write it off without even considering it as a possibility.” It is the writing off of ideas without considering them as a possibility that truly is the single mechanism that is the greatest hindrance to progress and has been the greatest hindrance to progress, throughout the history of humankind.
Believing the impossible
You always look at what is there and then you think that what might be should somehow conform to what is there. This is the lower consciousness that wants higher awareness to conform to matter. The physical universe is not an isolated unit. The physical universe is created as a projection of images that exists in the emotional, mental and identity levels. What you see in the physical universe is like a movie that is projected onto the screen of the basic energy. Therefore, if you change what exists at the three higher levels of the mind, you will change what manifests in the physical.
This means that you can bring forth a vision that does not conform to what is currently manifest in the physical. You will see, for example, that a thousand years ago (when people in Northern Europe were running around in iron helmets, swinging axes and acting like the Vikings) the vision of a modern airplane was, of course, in existence in higher awareness. All of the plans, all of the blueprints, were there. They did not have the technology to build an airplane back then. Did it really have to take 900 years for the idea, that was in higher awareness, to be lowered into the physical? The answer is: “Not necessarily.” It could have been brought forth earlier, not in a very short period of time given the state of the iron age, but certainly, it could have been brought forth in the 1500s, 1600s, 1700s—if there had been greater openness to new ideas.
It is not a matter of looking at a new idea and evaluating it based on what is currently manifest. It is a matter of realizing that there is the potential to bring forth something that is completely beyond what is currently manifest. This only requires the mind to be open to receive the idea from higher awareness. It also requires the mind’s ability to believe that this can be manifest.
If you take an honest look at the world today and look at the technology that exists in the modern age, you will see that there has been an incredible amount of progress compared to a thousand years ago. If you took a Viking from those days and brought him into the modern world, he would be in a state of total shock. In fact, his mind would simply shut down and he would refuse to accept what he is seeing in the modern world. You have heard that there are some times that people can see something that is so far beyond what they know, that their minds cannot accept it. If you had taken an airplane and brought it back to the time of a thousand years ago, people would have refused to accept what they are seeing—their minds would simply have shut down.
