Changing the World Around Us
The world around us can only be changed without karmic repercussions if we change it indirectly. If we try and change it directly, we are trying to force our will onto the ever changing flow of existence. This is, in the broadest sense, a form of black magic – no matter how well intended we are. There are two types of karmic chains we can wear: The iron chains of hurtful deeds, and the golden chains of good deeds. Good deeds stem from the arrogance of thinking that we can fix life.
Trying to change your circumstances directly is often not very successful. One who tries to master lucid dreaming, knows that when you try to study an object directly in the dream, you are immediately pulled into another part of the dream. The dream changes from direct focus. The outcome of scientific experiments change, depending on which scientist is doing the experiment.
Trying to change something that alters when you focus on it is therefore not effective. There are two approaches to change the environment:
1) To capture circumstances and enforce changes on it, using an external power source. This is called first ring magic, or black magic. It creates karmic repercussions because it dams up the flow of life, and because all of life is interconnected, causes stress and pain (forced change) somewhere in life.
2) The indirect approach, allows life to unfold, but eliminates those factors that cause obstruction through emphasizing something else. The shift of emphasis changes the outcome indirectly. This is second ring magic.
Personal power decreases when we try and force our will (resistance) onto life, and when we become dependent on external power sources, such as various allies. Personal power increases through the use of second ring magic, or the indirect principles of manifestation.
Changing the world to a reality of more graceful unfolding has been a quest for lightworkers. Yet many have shunned the study of how to achieve the power necessary for a beneficial contribution. Power has been feared as something that can pollute their purity, and thus it has been left in the hands of the ill intended. Mastering the impeccable use of personal power is essential for those who wish to contribute to a better world.
There are three different ways of affecting reality indirectly:
1) Through perception
2) Through emphasizing aspects of life with frequency and resonance
3) Through removing obstructive filters
1) The Use of Perception (Transfiguration)
Perception yields power – something light seekers will encounter, whether they are prepared for it or not. The power can be directed through intent, but we will then run the risk of imposing our will on life.
Perception based tools such as rituals, runes, incantations and healing modalities like Belvaspata, can indirectly broadcast intent when accompanied by insights. The focus is on the insight, deflecting it from a specified outcome. A broad intention is set such as: “I enter into the full abundance of my being.” The specifics of how the money and other resources will come, is not focused on.
As the perception removes obstructed vision, the power tied up in keeping obstructions in place is released and directed into the ceremony or ritual, which has been set up for the purpose of broadcasting your broad intention. This mobilizes elements to manifest your hopes in a far more spectacular way than you could have visualized yourself. All you have to do is hold an attitude of glad expectation.
2. The Use of Frequency and Resonance (Transmutation)
The use of frequency and resonance to powerfully affect our environment uses emphasis to increase the desirable elements in our surroundings. If we wish to have more abundance, we begin by being more abundant with ourselves in terms of time to relax, fulfilling the little desires of our heart, etc. If we wish to be loved and accepted, we stop abandoning ourselves in favor of others.
When difficult people are in our lives, we find the praiseworthy part within them that we can resonate with and emphasize it as a song in our heart when we are with them. We look past the difficult exterior and feel their resonant aspects vibrate with ours in perfect harmony.
3. Removing Filters (Transformation)
We remove the obstruction in our environment by finding a similar obstructiveness within ourselves, and removing it through insight and intent. We honor the purpose the filter in our vision or the obstructive attitude have served, but recognize that it is time for a higher vision. In this way we avoid the pitfall of strengthening what we oppose.
The Third Ring of Magic
The word magic has been misused for centuries. It never was intended to mean the ability to impose one’s will on life. Magic in its true meaning means to expose the Infinite perfection and design of unfolding existence. In third ring magic, you become so at one with the Infinite’s will, that you know there is nothing to change. You are able to contribute to the quality of the endless journey. Like a treasure hunt, the journey yields joyous discoveries of the eternal self, hidden within the many. Knowing this is to appreciate all life as an extension of the self. When this point is reached, the inner knowing becomes certain that all you can ever change is yourself.
