It was just a black kitten. But, for a moment, as I ran towards it in the dark dawn, I thought it was a big black dog coming towards me. With apologies to all dogs, in that moment my body reacted in fear as I thought it was a dog prowling the streets and I didn’t know how it would react to me.
But it wasn’t a dog, it was a black kitten; one so cute I stopped to say “hello” to it before running on. It was a perfect example of subjective to objective. “What you perceive (subjective) to be reality magnifies (objective).”
It’s all perception isn’t it? The outside – objective world – is only how we subjectively believe it to be. The objects that our material senses tell us are real are actually the subjective state of our thinking or perception.
This rule of perception is both freeing and scary isn’t it? Freeing because that means all the “work” we do on the outside to make things happen isn’t necessary, and scary because that means we have to really examine what we perceive to be real, or the point of view that we have chosen to live within.
We have been mostly trained backwards. We have been trained to look for and work for the object we want, when it really begins within as our perception. Which makes consciously choosing a perception that we want objectified an immediate necessity, but one that is often put aside so we can attend to the “details” of living our lives.
The outcome is we are more and more busy, but not more and more free.
How does this work in “real life” where bills need to be paid, children taken care of, houses cleaned and work to do?
We reverse the process and then watch the results.
When Del and I work with clients one of the first “tasks’ we give them is to redefine what they want by feeling the soul of it, or the qualities of it. We want them to translate the object back to its essence which is it idea or subjective state.
Have you ever thought of an idea and then watched as it became present in your life? Perhaps it was a new home, a book you wrote, a picture you painted, a car, a song or a dinner? What did you do first?
If you examine the process you will see that first you had the idea, or the soul of it, the qualities of it and then it became something the five senses could perceive. The clearer your concept of its soul – which often is so easy you don’t think about it – the better the “outside” result or object. Often the objective result is far superior then your first intention, especially when you have gotten your personality box out of the way. It often feels as if it takes on a “life of its own.”
Here’s where we forget. We forget that the true substance of the object was its idea. The idea becomes the “real” thing and because an object seen by the material senses is always two sided, the object often becomes something we have to “deal with.”
There are many examples of this.
How about money? Money
appears as an object, when in reality it is (no not energy, which is
still something the material sense can measure) the essence of its
soul, its qualities. For example, the idea, or soul, of gratitude is
something that is always replenishing itself and is something for which
money is used.
Other qualities of money are: dependable, constant, stable, increasing and available. Yes, these are some of the correct qualities of moneyIf you had enough, felt you had enough, wouldn’t you feel these qualities? Start subjectively with these qualities and you will “feel” what I mean. And aren’t these some of the qualities that we would all use to describe the One, or Divine Love?
But, you say that money is also the cause of much pain and sufferingYou are correct, as object, as something that we give power to through our material senses, it is two sided, both good and evil.
When we let the outside (objective) become the inside (subjective) we are lost in the illusion. When we translate the things of the outside back to the soul of it we find that we are free from the illusion. Then we are not in the dual world of good and evil and separation, but instead we are grounded in the omnipresent One. Heaven is not somewhere to go physically, but here and now internal, eternally present. We “just” have to let go of the worldview objective state to experience it.
When we want the object we are enslaved or indebted to it. It demands a price or a sacrifice to have more, or even have enough of itThe subjective soul of what we want does not need anything in order to be, or demand anything of us in order to have it. It is the essence of the One I Am.
Beginning with the true subjective state of One we are free.
The rule that “what we perceive to be reality magnifies” does not need us to believe in it for it to be true, anymore than the rule that 2 plus 2 = 4 needs us to believe it in order for it to be true. It just is. The rule of 2 + 2 = 4 does not actually “know” anything else other than itself as truthIt does not begin with an error. Both rules have no exceptions. When our subjective perception begins with the truth then the error becomes apparent and is easily set aside. (Unless we cling to it wanting it to be true, which still won’t make it true).
But in order to be accurate in all the uses of math we must use the 2 plus 2 = 4 rule.
In order to be accurate in life we must use the “perceive + reality = magnifies or objectives” rule
What we perceive is subjective. Here’s where free will comes into play. We are free to choose illusion or Reality. We are free to choose to see and live only from the soul of One, or we are free to live in the illusion of duality.
Paul said, “ ..be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…” (Romans 12:2) It’s as simple as realizing the kitten was not a dog. The hard part is breaking the habit of living in the objective worldview.
I forget all the time that if I just take a moment to reorient myself and begin with Truth and stand in the subjective knowing of One, than not only do I experience less fear but I experience objectively more abundance. And if I remember to see the “soul” or qualities of what I think I need, then the outside or objective world provides all that I need in every moment, because that is how the principle, or rule, of subjective to objective works and there are no exceptions.
We must not let the external become the internal; otherwise we are bound to lack and blind to abundance. All it takes is a shift of perception.
