Does the world exist in you? Or do you exist in the world? Does anything that you perceive exist? Are you a dweller in reality or is reality a dweller in you?
When you understand this dynamic you understand the creator and the created, the container and the contained. The only thing that truly exists is consciousness; and yes, indeed its three incorporated aspects: mind, thought and manifestation (soul), paralleling the concept of father, son, spirit.
Spirit not only moved upon the water, spirit was the water.
To perceive something is to identify it, to comprehend something is to incorporate it in your consciousness. Just as you have heard in your teachings that not being in the present is disempowering. The same is true, the less you comprehend a manifestation or the less you comprehend the One Mind, the more separate and disempowered you are from it. Remember that comprehension of physicality is to understand the manifestation through perfect insight. Insight without negative ego filters.
Perception is always third person; comprehension is always first person.
Even in writing there are three voices, first, second, and third. And often times, nearly all the time, one perceives that the third dimension is seen as height, width and depth. The third dimension has nothing to do with that. It has to do with the three recognizable aspects of consciousness, the One Mind, the One Thought, and the One Soul—the source, the observation, and the manifestation—the elemental aspects of Consciousness.
Remember that thought is the focus, the One Thought is the focus, just as a prism chooses what light it will project.
An unfettered thought in the mind of God or consciousness has all potentiality; so what you focus on is what is perceived and what is perceived is what you comprehend. Thus, you are your thoughts. You have thought, observation—and observation can have focus. So take the light of awareness and focus potentiality upon your perception unfettered by subjective, separate thinking or distorted by negative ego filters in order that which you perceive will be perfect.
So your thought does create, what you think does create and is either affected or unaffected by the negative ego filters.
To possess that which you perceive, you must comprehend it.
Consider the question, “Are you of the world or in the world?” You become that which you observe. Within the tri-dimensional concept of consciousness lies both heaven and, figuratively, hell. The key to paradise is unfettered, potentiality expressed upon your perception and comprehended by it.
