Houses and the Great Illusion

29 05 2011

1st house

The first house is the house of the deception of the self. The stronger that this house is fortified, the greater the lie. The body is the most convincing lie of all. What happens is that the person becomes identified with the body in which they are, and the  grand mistake is  that when the individual feels pain, he, or she tends to say “I feel pain”, when in fact technically it is just the body which feels pain. There are many forms of illusion relating to the self, but the 1st house is by far the most powerful deception of all. This is the house where the person is incarnated into a physical body. This body is what most people refer to when they say “I”. When they say “I went to the cinema”, they are implying that their body went to the cinema, in conjunction with their mind.

2nd house

The second house is where the body gets nutrition. Many consider this the house of income and wealth but in fact the closer truth is that it describes the hunger that a person has for food, and what goes into the mouth. This house is deceptive, but unlike the first, a person can go without food for some time, but a person cannot go without a body. When we are deceived by the second house, we take great pleasure in eating. It is easy to become attached to food and to consider this as real manifestation, when in fact it is not.

3rd house

The third house is a truly hellish place. In this house manifests all logical reasoning, which naturally is interminable. No amount of reasoning or logic will lead to the truth. In general the human mind can only grasp and understand words and concepts which relate to the physical world of the five senses. In this house a person may travel thousands of miles going round and round his neighborhood, expanding that neighborhood until he knows the world like the back of his hand. But in the end all of these journeys are futile and meaningless, like the food that he eats, the money that he earns and the body which he identifies himself with.

4th house

In the fourth house a man meets his father. This is a grand deception, considering that he himself is a lie, the father however respected and great, is also a lie like himself. The fourth house is said to be the “foundation”. When the man comes into contact with the fourth house the grand lies which present themselves are his genetic ancestry through the father. Other lies which are prominent include the house or home, and the idea, if there is one of belonging to a nation or tribe. Such notions hold a powerful sway of any one person. Houses, like fathers are imposing and majestic in the eyes of a child. But the idea that one belongs in any one place is just another falsehood. Like the first house this lie is very powerful because of the physicality of it; a father is a physical person, like the physical body of the first house, and a home or a country is also a physical place with its own sensory experiences.

5th house

In the fifth house the man, or woman comes into contact with a fun illusion. This illusion tells them that there is something that can be won, that the physical body awaits some special satisfaction or prize. This house also manifests physical presence of people, in the form of children, but the love of children like the love of the self is equally mistaken since children are nothing more than physical bodies also, and when they identify themselves with their physical bodies, and demand their  parents to take care of them, their parents are dragged back into the web of deception.

6th house

This illusion involves comforts of animals or people who you can treat as animals. In the same way a horse works for you a man can also be trained to work for you. Slavery is abolished, but the same principle applies. The sixth in reality is a house of dependence in the way a leech or mosquito is dependent on human blood for its nutrition. Slaves, servants and horses may do good work for a man, but in the end, they must be fed and kept for by that man, and they pledge no allegiance or love for the man. Because the people of this house are not loyal then this house is less persuasive as part of the grand scheme of lies.  In the sixth house also dwells all of the bacteria and infections which we filthy humans carry around with us, some of this parasites are beneficial, and some are not.

7th house

This house’s potency to deceive is, along with the 1st house, extremely great. Its purpose is to provide a human opposite or “other” in order to encourage the person to cling to their first house and enliven it. In one sense the 7th stimulates the person into believing that their body is their real self, because that body desires the body of the other. If the other person is convincingly real, then the deceived person must accept their own body.

8th house

The deception here regards the fact of things in life ending, including life itself. When one is convinced that life ends, in the demise of the physical body, then this threat has a marvelously profound influence of the individual. The lie is that the end of the body = the end of the person. When the person believes this lie it is impossible to live to the true self and the life which was meant for fear of the impending end. The biggest deception of the 8th house is thinking (wrongly) that this is the only life. A person who believes this mother of all lies, will clearly go around in a panic trying their very hardest to cling to material existence, since they believe that this is the only and last material existence that they will experience. Misuse of the sexual energy is the primary reason for believing this falsehood.

9th house

When a person travels into the 9th house, the illusions which manifest include idols, and icons. This house also presents long journeys and literature of expansive nature.  This is the house of all false religion, because it relates to abstract thought. The idols of the 9th can take any form. Most people’s religion is idolatry when they worship Jesus the man, and Mary the woman. When they worship Mohamed or Buddha this is idol worship. Great teachers put on a pedestal and corrupted by simple minds. The Greeks and Romans, and other ancient peoples worshiped idols too, and in the same way, modern people worship “famous” people. The millionaire footballers and pop-stars are the idolatrous gods of the modern age. Modern economic policy favors “atheism” because it can create a religion which is more profitable. If people worship Jesus as an idol, they are less productive than if they worship footballers and pop-stars, since those gods earn lots of money, and as gods of money these are favorable in terms of economics.

10th house

A powerful deception is present here. The delusion for anyone entering this house is of being “well-known” or famous, or respected by the public or people at large. The nature of this delusion is that the public are just bodies themselves, and have no real understanding anyway. Ants may worship a human as a god, but this does not make the man a god

11th house

What a man hopes for may be a multitude of different things, but the lie of this house if manifested as people, is the same lie which is present in any other house. The happiness attained in this house is the same material fabrication of the previous houses.

12th house

This is the best house by far for disentangling the person from the cobweb of lies which come before. In this house a person will come to realise that all the other houses are false. But the danger in this house is that the person may become addicted to self destruction in order to fulfill that self’s desires and to feel alive. Self-annihilation requires that there be a self in the first place, however if the person attacks their own body in an attempt to destroy the self, then they are mistaken.

Rapture, today and every day

21 05 2011

Heaven is found within. All religious and spiritual truth is found within. These are words that I heard but never understood, for most of my life, until I started meditating and seriously working on understanding “myself” or the illusion of myself.

If I were to go to heaven tomorrow, there “I” would be. In this sense I’d be taking my “self” with all of its flaws there and I would still be suffering there, and so it wouldn’t be heaven. To find heaven I must leave behind the “Ego”, all thoughts, and all emotions which relate to the physical body or the idea of the self. Heaven is to be found by those who are able to leave behind everything which builds ego.

I will be in the “Rapture” tomorrow, I am sure of it, because I will go and meditate in the afternoon after work. And as I meditate repeating my special prayer, or “mantra”, I will confess all of the things which are of this earth and which cause me to be caught up in hell, which is internal. After hours of this meditation I will ascend into a part of my being, which is spiritual and it will appear as a white light. And there will be no thoughts which perturb this vision, and there will be no emotion which is able to destabilise it, and with my eyes closed I will find heaven.

Jesus Christ the man, may be walking the Earth. But I do not need to see the man, to know Christ the consciousness. My physical body and mind will not go to heaven. In heaven there is no death and decay, and so the physical body as it is with blood can’t and shouldn’t go there. The solar body, which is a different kind of body, which operates in a different dimension can find heaven, but this body can only be created through not being attached to the physical existence, which is animalistic.

When I realise that my ego and my body are just a test for the real self, which is of a different dimension, when I understand that the earthly plain is not truly real, and that it is more or less a game or an act, and that my self in fact and my body is not my real self, then I am able to move forward.

I, as a man, am a body, and of flesh, I have family which are also made of flesh and I have a job and a role, which is mental, but which is nothing more than sustenance to that flesh. But when we talk about consciousness, we leave the lower mind, which relates to the matter of the earth, and we also leave behind all things related to the body. Those who will find the rapture tomorrow will leave behind their physical bodies, this does not mean death, it just means awakening of consciousness.

The idea of heaven is not “post-physical death”. This is the great mistake of modern thought, which looks at the spiritual writings and says, after death, is the afterlife and heaven. No, heaven is on earth, heaven does not occur after one dies at the age of 78 after living a “good life”. Heaven is possible now. Heaven is spiritual living. The biggest spiritual mistake is to believe that God is only to be found or seen after physical death. All my life, I inclined to believe that God was something the individual came into contact with as an external entity. It is true we must be “good” in order to begin to live the way we were meant to live, which is in true glory.

To begin the journey I must go into myself. It takes concentration to silence all thoughts related to the lower mind, and there are techniques to doing this, which involve prayer, or mantra, sitting in silence in a serene location, preferably with a pond or lake with fish in it and trees, and stillness. The aim is to leave behind totally the daily life. At first thoughts which relate to this unreal life will swim around in the consciousness, and they will do all they can to talk over the spirit. Once the lower mind is conquered, there will still be emotion, or feeling which exists, like a residue of past events, which can weigh a person down. Focusing on something within nature such as a stone or flower, and understanding its existence in relation to all things around it, will help me to calm those waters. This is a long process and it requires persistence and strength of mind in order to get results.

All belief which relates the personal ego of this life to the eternal soul, is seriously mistaken.  The idea that “I” as a personality, or even as a collection of memories related to the physical life of my human body could live, or even want to live eternally is absurd. When one has experienced suffering in life and has understood that all of life is suffering and that all individual egos are caught in the illusion of the self, then one understands that for that individual ego to continue living after physical death is not only impossible, but utterly undesirable also.

I as a person, as a physical body, do not wish to continue living after death. This life is a trial, it is suffering. But this suffering is a wonderful opportunity in which to develop pure consciousness. All that which you can see and test, is logic, and relates directly with physical existence. But  there is a higher knowledge, a higher understanding which is not one mind which can only deal with one thought at a time, and this is heavenly knowledge, and relates to the tree of life.

In this life I must turn things on its head. It doesn’t matter if I lose my job or fail my course. It doesn’t matter if I have not money either. It doesn’t matter if my love for someone is not mutual. All of these things are superficial distractions, because they are primarily external to the true self, and that they are all part of the ego of illusion. If all of these things in my life were to fall apart and leave me, I should be happy, because I would have the chance to work on my true self. I would have the chance to go inside and find heaven.
