You will meet Nick Blain, who told me about the Chronologia discipline that is at Moscow State University. Nick's 5-greats uncle was William H. Cabell, who was the governor of Virginia at the turn of the XIX century and whom the county was named after. Nick is a composer, piano, violin, voice and Latin teacher. I met Nick’s mother during a youth concert, and conducted the interview in the old Huntington, WV orchestra room. Our backdrop is a xylophone. Occasionally you hear the plumbing of that beautiful old building in the background.
We are having Betsy Malone, whom we met on the November 3rd segment, back again. Also, on Valentine's day, Betsy wrote about the collective unconscious and told us to "know thyself." We'll review some of this material as well.
At the heart of the matter
When you talk about something, you go to the "heart of the matter." The heart is identified with the very soul of the individual. Tantra yoga teaches that the heart of man and the heart of the world are a single heart.
A Commentary on the Psyche and Collective Unconscious
Note on the anatomy of the psyche that the circles indicate the spheres of influence of the various levels of awareness and inherent knowledge. The key being awareness and inherent knowledge of what is real and what is illusion. Both of these perceptions exist at once within the lower realm of our consciousness. What’s exciting is that the number of Individuals moving up and away from the illusion toward the truth (higher Self) has increased. This is evident by the number of whistleblowers, individuals taking a stand, and the scale of corruption that’s exposed. The propaganda tool (information age) of the lower self… built by an ego based consciousness …that is hell bent on maintaining only a materialistic illusion is now fueling a large-scale revolution. “The kingdom of God is near.” “The kingdom is within us.” Jesus describes the situation and passes on the good news which is the kingdom is at hands length, near us, within us or something we can grasp with our consciousness. This is His call to revolution. This sphere in natural man is called individual unconscious and relates to all those experiences that have passed through the ego of Yesod and into the psyche to attach themselves to the sefirot, paths, and triads surrounding the (higher) Self. Deeper still, and focused on the Daat of Yezirah, is a radius of the unconscious that is connected with all men that have lived, are living, and will live. (We’re all in this together.) The scale of this radius of consciousness is cosmic, and for the vast majority of humanity totally hidden within the deep of the collective unconscious this level is the bridge between man and the divine. All orbits of influence interleaved, so that a natural man is by no means cut off from the source of his being. The spiritual difficulty is that he is unconscious of the influxes descending through his nature. The personal consciousness includes the body, ego, instinctive processes, voluntary processes and (lower) self. The individual consciousness moves up toward the emotional (moral) mid section that includes the ego foundation, instinctive processes, voluntary processes, (higher) Self, outer emotion, inner emotion, and knowledge. The collective unconscious includes the (higher) Self, inner emotion, outer emotion, knowledge, inner intellect, outer intellect, and crown. The crown represents a connection to our source. Note: our ego foundation is an important part on the road to awareness; however, it’s not the place to be stuck in for eternity.
In an attempt to keep sovereignty in this lower region the ego (NGCC personifies this aspect) based world has bombarded us with temptations and lies throughout history. The ego is self absorbed and self preserving. And, here is where the temptation to manipulate others resides in a narcissistic mindset. This mindset causes division by whatever means possible in the masses of humanity to maintain its position of superiority and control. It remains disconnected from its source and imagines it will set the world right by its own power. This is why a small group wants to control humanity’s currency. In a physical way they want to control the flow of things. However, we are near the end of an age and collectively humanity is ready to embrace the higher Self. (Understand we are spiritual beings) The collective unconscious, humanity, or our personal experiences either by Faith or by Reason lead us to the same conclusion. United we stand and divided we fall. Only having the tree of knowledge keeps the consciousness in the lower level (materialism and vulnerable to deception) and that is the death, sin, and suffering we see all around us. - Betsy Malone
