Lovely discourse you two
Maringa said: But, one thing troubles me. The more conscious we get the more access we should (?) get to other dimensions, more "powers" etc, or? I've grown in presence power but I can't see energy, can't see auras, can't lucid dream, astral project, talk to spirits etc. None of that. Is it because I'm not THAT conscious yet, or is it because of something else?
I want to reply in two parts to this - one to show the 'normal' inattention that we apply to 'isness', the second to give example of when we recognise that our 'boundaries' are self created and allow latitude. (They'll both likely be long, apologies
Embedded within your thinking (solidifying), is a notion that the things you listed above are more than within ordinary human capacities - and obviously if humans are capable of having those experiences then that is not true.
The only thing keeping you apart from these things is your thinking / thoughts about it, keeping you separate from them in your attention.
It's really quite gorgeous and funny when folks realise that what they think
is outside of their capacity they've been ignoring in them self - talking away, or just plain ignoring, all the time.
Sit near a tree and watch a breeze blow through it - notice how even though you cannot 'see' the wind, you can see the effects of it - you can see the leaves individually and collectively 'dance'. You can put your attention minutely to one leaf, one branch, the whole side of the tree that you can see, and then out wider to the whole environment that the tree is centred in. Every single thing in that environment and beyond is part of the dance of energies at different frequencies and densities. Any 'physical boundary' is not really solid and static.
Once you've accepted the 'isness' of it - the 'ineffable' 'indescribable sense of it the boundaries become all but transparent, between your focus and you and between all the elements in your attention.
That IS awareness of energy in motion. We don't 'see it' with our eyes, we become aware of it in our awareness.
So now close your eyes and 'feel' the breeze on the hairs on your skin. And then notice how you 'normally' don't really notice that, it's so subtle and so 'normal' as to go unnoticed, it's 'unremarkable' for the most part.
Take it to the awareness level of all the layers of harmonics and interaction and it also becomes just 'is' - and again ineffable, but still in our awareness.
Then do the same with the sun's rays - notice and acknowledge that they touch, and how they touch and interact with everything - watch and then become 'conscious of' the interaction with a droplet of water or anything within your frame of reference, recognise that in a time-lapse they feed a growing plant or blade of grass.
Then take that pure attention and acknowledge its interaction with and within you, from the hairs on your head to the interaction of the skin of your feet on warm soil and its permeating your clothing and your skin and interacting with what you think of as 'you' the boundaries are once again noticed as less 'solid'.
You are quite naturally and normally quite obliviously and mostly unappreciatively, relating with the energies of the sun, internally and externally - -- it doesn't come along with 'VITAMIN D BRINGER' and 'ultra-violet' rays, 'visible light' and 'infra-red rays' on labels - it is 'ineffable' - too great to be described in words, it just IS - beyond perfect, beyond any of the other 'world view' labelling in the chart above, but also an equilibrium of all of them below 'IS'.
So, you can now see that by your level of directing awareness in attention, and within the normal capacity of humanness, 'stuff' is happening with and around you that you don't normally cognitise as bleeding into and out of and around you in a way that you recognise and process consciously. But that doesn't mean that you 'can't' do it.
Can and can't are passive states in awareness;
Could and would are passive projective states;
should and shouldn't are restricting states in awareness;
will and shall are active projective states (into some future point)
Only doing, being, 'are' and 'is', are present active states where we bring our own energy of attention and consciousness to a thing in this present moment.
No thing is stopping you from where and how deep or how shallow you turn your attention and 'cognitise' what just 'is' it is not in the thinking, it is in the doing, being, 'are' and 'is' in experience.
We quite naturally focus and refocus our attention at different frequencies of energy in motion all the time. But most of the time we're not actually paying attention to individual or blending frequencies because they are all blended in together and interacting.
When (if) you were paying attention to the breeze, and even at night the sun's rays are still interacting, and however minutely so too was the breeze while concentrating on the sun's rays. The 'is' of everything doesn't go anywhere, our attention to it does.
We 'choose' (consciously or unconsciously) where we take our attention, and we choose (consciously or unconsciously) the limits that WE apply to cognitising (recognising), accepting and interpreting available stimuli.
Just as we would if we were viewing a thing through a telescope, or a microscope, or a magnifying glass, or a camera lens with any number of 'framing' options. Our human senses are far more capable than we generally give them credit for and our consciousness is this + (whatever the 95% of all matter and energy is)
The stimuli that we actually do appreciate and recognise as just 'is' by our just isness
- like the sun's rays or a breeze in the trees, if we are not
physically paying attention the interaction between all of it, and us, by individual frequencies it's not that we cannot, it's that we are
not in this present moment.
And when we do, it's not that we've grown any special powers, it's just that we are using what we already had and are recognising consciously what we previously ignored in any given moment.
Then it just 'is' palpably, recognisably, and yes ineffably (indescribably) part of any experience in presence.
