Definitions / contemplations

Following are some definitions as used on this blog:
This page is in continuous process of development.

Acceptance is the ability to face things as they are.   Compare with honesty, reality,

Acceptance is the ability to face reality as it is.

Acceptance enables reality to be dealt with as it is.

Accountability is answering for one’s freewill. Responsibility exists with the exercising of freewill; accountability exists afterwards. Accountability is after the fact. Compare with freewill, responsibility

Analysis is the division of facts.      Compare with reason, logic, interplay.

Awareness is awareness of self and of surroundings.

Awareness is double sided, and extends in two directions; awareness outward of surroundings, and awareness inward of self  – outward awareness and inward awareness.

Awareness is the first attribute of consciousness. Awareness is double sided, consisting of outward looking awareness of surroundings, and inward looking awareness of self.

Awareness is the first attribute of consciousness. Awareness is double sided, consisting of outward looking awareness of surroundings, and inward looking awareness of self.

Belief is an unknown conviction – a conviction held to be true when it is not known to be true. Although unknown, a belief may be true or false.  Compare with faith, knowledge

Better judgement is reason and conscience combined. Compare to reason, conscience; compare with desire, emotion

Blessing, a blessing is a touch of God, a touch of love. We bless someone by touching their freewilled soul with love. The touch may include a physical touch or may be across a distance.

For example. We may extend a wish to another’s soul, “May you always look within yourself and know what’s good and right to do, and have the strength to do it,” while kissing or touching their forehead. Couple the wish with a prayer/connection within and upward to God or to our own oversoul, and so aligning our wish with God’s wish. And so it is not just our self that blesses but also God-within that flows down through our soul and carries forward our wish to help another person.

We can also bless people silently without them knowing, just by wishing the above blessing to them from our heart. Gather the wish, then send it forth from the heart, to their freewilled soul.

We can also send them the love wish, “May you learn and grow with a minimum of suffering”. Again include faith and prayer.

With practice we learn to include the breath in the blessing and in the love wish so as to give the blessing and love more smoothness and power. Can practice the love-wish in meditation, after repentance and prayer. Also at any other time and towards anyone or any group. With practice we will learn to do it in one breath, gathering the love-wish on the inhalation and sending it out on the exhalation. It is directed from the head but sent forth from the heart.

Dimension:  a dimension is a two way direction, or two opposite directions.  ↔   Dimensions intersect with adjacent dimensions at right angles to each other and at right angles to all other dimensions. We live in a three dimensional world, where the dimensions are up-and-down, left-and-right, to-and-fro, each intersecting at right angles to each other.

Our world or universe in which our three dimensions exist is also a dimension of itself, with its three internal sub-dimensions. So there are dimensions with sub-dimensions within them. There exists many other universes like our own, or dimensions, all running at right angles to every other.  see here         Compare time, space,

Discipline is (intelligent) adherence to a chosen path.   Compare commitment, intelligence  

Discrimination is the ability to differentiate between one thing and another.

Fire is one of the four occult or hidden elements. At its most original/interior/primal/first state fire is the guard of God, no one comes to God except through fire. Fire surrounds God, comes from God and permeates outward and downward filtering down through all dimensions in accordance with the ability of each dimension and its matter to accommodate it. Every dimension has its types of fire. There is fire by friction, by radiation and conductivity, and by combustion. Fire is light and heat. Fire animates, moves, sterilises, consumes and purifies. Fire is alive and conscious, as are the other elements. All convection, friction, radiation, conduction, combustion/consumption, is by and of fire. Fire drives all things, via convection in the broadest sense. Man’s history is the history of his understanding and use of fire, from crudest fire through to current uses in all manner of combustive, electrical and atomic mechanisms and applications. Man’s history is also the history of his development of his internal fires, from crudest to finest. Man’s purpose and destiny is to refine and perfect his use, understanding and management of fire, externally and internally.    See also truth, love, light, hell, consciousness, conscience, heart, elements, convection, occult 

Force is effort, effort is force. Both words are from the Latin fortis, meaning strong. Compare power

Force is the initial effort; power is the effect. To have power is to have effect.

Forgiveness is love regardless. Compare love, Christ, heart

Forgiveness aura is a constructed aura of forgiveness. See here and here and here

Free choice is the ability to freely choose between any option discerned.  Compare freewill

Compare elementals, repentance, love, fire 

Freewill is the ability to obey or disobey conscience. It includes free choice. Freewill has a horizontal element, that is, freedom to choose between any option discerned (free choice); and a vertical element, that is, freedom to obey or disobey conscience. Freewill is the potential to learn.  Compare free choice, conscience, will, intellect,

Freewill is consciousness, without memory of its prior existence and with no programming, immersed into a world of illusion where reality appears reversed and falsities appear real and true. Under such conditions the task of freewill is to sort truth from falsity.

Friction caused by opposing vibration/movement/frequency coming together. Friction is a type of fire; and is also produced by fire and fires. Compare fire, consciousness, conscience, discord,

God is the sum-total of all things, with purpose. And that purpose, crudely put, is the benefit to all things of their living.

God is absolute, nothing is outside of God, or higher or lower than God. God is constant, does not fluctuate. If God fluctuated, it would not be continually absolute. God is all pervasive. There is no place where God is not. Only freewill has the ability to shut God out of itself by ignoring conscience, or can let God into itself; but can only shut out the will of God and love of God, not the life of God which is everywhere. God includes all things,; all intelligences, forces and energies, are all God in division and subdivisions, and in their total and in their beginning and end, all things are God and of God. The concept of God as being the absolute extent and culmination of all things and forces, is not a limiting belief which confines one’s mind as does belief in a partial god of which reality is greater, but is a rational, expansive and open ended concept which is takes in reality and all that exists.

Compare belief, faith, oversoul, holy spirit, 

(I find it interesting that many who say they are scientists and atheists speak of the search for a Unified Theory and a Theory of Everything, and of the universe being driven by thermodynamics, while mocking thousands of years old Judeo-Christian scriptures which describe an omnipresent omniscient God from which all things stem and return, and who rules, communicates, retributes and loves by fire.)

Gravity is the space of one dimension pulling on the matter of another.

Hang ups are irrational aversions and irrational attractions.

Harm
Assumed harm, is harm that is assumed upon oneself, that is, the harm is assumed and taken on, where in reality there is no harm done. Assumed harm is the worst harm. The assumption is self fulfilling. Assumed harm does the damage that it is believed to do, and lasts as long as it is believed in. Examples of assumed harm are those cases where individuals assume they are emotionally scared following certain events and experiences. Assumed harm can range through degrees of being unconscious to deliberate.

Applied assumed harm, when someone with influential power over another, such as a counsellor or psychologist, (also the media and social power) convinces another person to assume that harm has been done to their self, when in reality no harm was done. Applying assumed harm to others is a subtle but effective form of mental-emotional abuse, currently rampant and professionally practiced by agents of the victim industry, who make money and to weaken and oppress others and certain groups.

Self harm, is harm done to oneself, by any conceivable means, such as cutting, burning, drugs, taking poisons, eating disorders, acquiring disease, orchestrating accidents, and using and manipulating another person to inflict the harm. Self harm may be open, hidden, or token hidden; may be a means of release or uptake of energy; may be a tool/means of acquiring victim status and its many social and perceived personal benefits; may be an expression of self-pity; may be a means of power and control over others and cruelty to them.

Harmlessness is the ability to do harm to others, withheld. Harmlessness is is withholding unnecessary hurt or harm (and/or inconvenience) from others.
The key word in this definition is withholding, for harmlessness is not harmlessness if it is incapable of harm. Unlike defencelessness, harmlessness is not a condition, it is a choice. For harmlessness to be a choice it must be capable of harm.
Like negative numbers, degrees of harmlessness are measured in degrees of harm that could be done.
As harm can be done through action or words, on physical, emotional, mental or spiritual levels, so too, harmless can be exercised on these same levels.
Harmlessness is not a virtue in itself, but it clears the way for virtues to flow forth.
 

Compare to defencessness, pacifism, leniency, mercy, force.

The first and primary inconvenience is an inconvenience to learning. Compared to an inconvenience to learning, all other inconveniences are of lesser importance, even trivial. Consider that someone may be hurt without realising they have been hurt, and inconvenienced without realising they have been inconvenienced.

Hate is the desire to hurt or harm another/others, or to see harm done. Hate includes the desire to oppress, obstruct or inconvenience. Incompatibility or dislike without the desire to harm or see harm done, is not hate, no matter how definite the dislike may be.

Help is what is done in light of love.

Helpfulness is the inclusion of mind (mental and physical activity) within the love wish.

Honesty is the ability to see things as they are. Compare acceptance, awareness, truth, superimposition, belief, neurosis, sanity, insanity, madness

Honesty is transparency of mind; is the medium of truth.     Honesty is clarity of mind.       Compare mind

Honesty is the medium of truth. Compare truth

One cannot be honest unless one first values truth above all else. The effort should be towards truth, and honesty will follow.

Honesty, the continuation of,  To speak things as they are is the continuation of honesty. This is because honesty is clearness of mind, that sees things as they are, and such a clear mind is a medium of truth, and speaking things as they are follows on from seeing things as the are, and so speaking things as they are is the continuation of honesty, for honesty is in the mind, and speech follows on from there.
Compare with truth, honesty, reality.

Hope is the knowledge of possibilities.

Hope is the knowledge of what is possible for man.  …is the knowledge of what is possible.  …is the knowledge of possibilities.

Hope is God’s, and is man’s to the extent that man attunes/aligns with God.

The giving of hope is the sharing of knowledge. The sharing of knowledge must be done sensibly, with discretion, of course. For knowledge is power which requires responsibility and regulation.

Humour is a right angled shift into the unexpected, and one that tickles the fancy. Of course one’s fancy is a personal matter.

Impatience is an emotional condition that results from the lack of a mental understanding that events occur in sequence.  Compare patience

Intellect is the interplay between intelligence and mind.

Intelligence: from the Latin interlegere; inter, meaning between; and legere, meaning to choose; to choose between.

Intelligence is the ability to choose between one thing and another.

Intelligence is the ability to distinguish the difference and the relationship between things. Compare differentiate, discriminate

The measure of Intelligence is the scope of awareness, divided by distinctions discerned, multiplied by relationships recognised. In other words, intelligence is the degree of fineness to which one can discriminate and generalise.

The ability to discern differences and recognise relationships manifests through intellect as creativity and problem solving ability. (Intellect being the interplay between intelligence and mind)  Compare intellect, passive, active and creative intelligence, discrimination, awareness, consciousness, soul, freewill, conscience

Intelligence at its most primeval level is the ability to differentiate between light and darkness.  For more about intelligence see here, and here, and here, and here. Or type intelligence into the search field at the top right corner of the home page and press enter.

Intelligence is consciousness, the difference between the two is largely referential. see herehere,

Intelligence: categories of intelligence:

Passive Intelligence is the ability to discriminate between one thing and another but no ability to freely choose between them, for the choice is pre-determined, pre-programmed. Animals, computers and computer programs, and mechanical, elemental and psychological constructions have passive intelligence. Regardless of its limitations, passive intelligence may posses a wide scope, be capable of the finest distinctions and have elaborate combinations of pre-programmed reactions built into it.

Active Intelligence is the ability to discriminate between one thing and another, combined with the ability to freely choose either or any option.  Active intelligence is the absence of pre-programming. Humans have active intelligence. Active intelligence is freewill.

Creative Intelligence is the ability to freely choose aspects from a variety of options and combine them together to create a previously imagined result. Humans have creative intelligence. Creative intelligence is built upon active intelligence, which is built upon passive intelligence.

Information is that which we have been informed of but have not experienced. Information is not knowledge. Compare with knowledge, experience

Initiative is the ability to “do“, to initiate something, anything. Initiative is of the third attribute of consciousness, and follows the first and second attributes. Initiative is also of the creative category of intelligence, which follows passive and active intelligence. Compare intelligence, exertion, force.

Insanity is a detachment from reality, and is in the head.  Compare neurosis, madness

Insanity is absence of reason; is illogical thought, from marginal to extreme. Illogical thought is thought that does not run in an upward and forward direction through the big picture.

Leniency is using no greater force than is required. Love makes force lenient. Compare mercy, force, love

Light is the medium of sight.  Light enables vision; it provides the ability to see.

Light flows out from God, outward, downward, and throughout all the planes and dimensions of existence. Each dimension/universe/plane/level of existence has its own light. Within our self are also planes or layers. Light comes to us from without and from within. Light is a product of fire. Compare love, warmth, fire, conscience, heart, God, sight,

Love is the draw of God. Love is the light and warmth/fire of God.   Compare Christ, heart

Love is first and foremost a decision.     see decision, will, choice

Love includes forgiveness. Without forgiveness it is not love. Without an understanding and appreciation of freewill and its potential to learn, it is not love. Love is light. Warmth is an ingredient of love. See forgiveness, light, warmth, fire, Christ, helpfulness,

Madness is a detachment from virtue, and is in the heart, and effects the head.  Compare insanity

Meditation is consciousness exercising itself. Meditation begins with awareness identifying and exercising itself. Compare awareness, consciousness.

Occult means hidden; of things commonly hidden or not commonly known. Occult does not mean evil, though an occultist may be good or evil. The subject matter of this website is therefore occult, because it is of things normally out of sight and not commonly known. However, it is intended to be systematic, logical and individually verifiable to the extent the individual is able to achieve in his or her given time and situation.

See also science, subjective and individual.

Patience is not an emotional condition, it is a mental understanding that events occur in sequence.  Compare impatience

Perspective is the correct proportion and importance of things, in comparison to each other and to oneself.

There is an emphasis on correct perspective, meaning how things actually are, that is, true perspective. False perspective is false proportion and importance.

Repentance makes us transparent before God, and enables God’s light to penetrate our entire being, even into our unpleasant places. Repentance is like bringing a cleaner into our house and showing him every dirty room and cupboard, and asking him to clean our house. Repentance is God’s cleaning service. Compare forgiveness, honesty, love

Respect is seeing others as they are, and acknowledging their credentials. Credentials, from credence; recognition of standing; recognition of existence.

Responsibility is constant attention upon one’s own freewill.
Responsibility and freewill go together like two sides of a coin. Either one or both can be denied, but they both exist, accepted or not, and they cannot be separated from each other.
As freewill can be either self centred or considerate of others, and committed either way, so too, responsibility can be selfish or considerate, can be constant attention upon one’s own freewill for selfish sake or for the sake of others.
Compare freewill, intelligence, accountability,

Science is the pursuit of truth by logical means.

The pursuit of truth by logical means can be via the objective and collective route, or the subjective and individual route.

Sleep is the dismantling of the bodies so that the vital body (ethric body) can be revitalised. The mental-emotional bodies exit the vital body via the solar plexus centre, leaving the oversoul in direct contact via the upper cord with the vital and physical bodies. During sleep the externalised mental-emotional body is at the end of the lower cord, receiving life/vitality and its consciousness possesses, at best, observation and recall, but no intellect, due to not having contact with the upper cord which communicates the oversoul’s will, thus providing conscience where it contacts the inner upper pinnacle of the vital body, and by contrast with our consciousness provides freewill and intellect when we are reassembled and awake.   Compare subtle bodies, vital body, oversoul, silver cord upper and lower, freewill, intellect, conscience, centres,

Soul The soul is consciousness, is intelligence. These three, soul, consciousness and intelligence, are the same item, the difference between them being largely referential, with the different terms being used in relation to context. Compare consciousness, intelligence, oversoul.  

Silver cord There is an upper and lower silver cord.

The upper cord is a cordlike structure of energy that runs from the oversoul to the soul. It is something like a cord or laser beam, and has an interior and exterior layer something like a coaxial cable. It communicates all energies in both directions between the soul and oversoul. It is like coaxial cable in that it has a central thread and a surrounding layer. The central thread carries life and vitality, that is, pure energy with no programming or message in it; just vitality. The surrounding layer carries energies comprising of the oversoul’s will, intelligence, virtues and powers, and other various energies and communications between the soul and oversoul. At the inner upper pinnacle of the vital body, at the crown centre, the outer layer of the cord stops on the other side of a circular semi-transparent membrane which is the crown centre and conscience.

The inner thread of the cord continues through the crown centre and into our conscious self, carrying pure spirit and vitality, and it runs from crown centre, down through our head centre consciousness, down through our throat centre consciousness, down through our heart centre, then through the solar plexus or stomach centre, then to the sacral or lower abdominal centre, and then to the base centre which is right between the legs at a place called the perineum, and there the cord terminates. Between the crown and base centres, the lower cord runs in descending order through the layers of our personality make up, these being the layers of our mental and emotional bodies. The matter of the mental body circulates its the mental structures that comprise its content through the cord for energising those structures at the head centre, where we are conscious in the head. The emotional body circulates its sensations and desires through the cord at the solar plexus or stomach centre. The other centres have functions to be covered elsewhere. The conscience and the base centre are the upper and lower poles of the soul. The cord is not so much something we have as it is what we are; it is the form or structure of our consciousness within the bodies, and is our soul. Compare centres, head, cycle of thought, heart, oversoul, soul, consciousness, elementals,                 

Strength is strength-to-do. It comes from faith.
Compare with faith, in self, in God,  e.g. “Spend time in quiet communion with me, and receive your strength-to-do. Begin with a gentle awareness of me within yourself”

Ultimately, strength-to-do is the strength to do one’s duty. 

Surroundings are all that surrounds the soul; the three bodies – mental, emotional and physical bodies – and their respective environments or planes.

Tact is the careful packaging of truth. Tact does not compromise truth nor compromise clear communication.  Compare with truth, communication.

Thankfulness is the heart receiving and storing what it is thankful for. What is received in thankfulness is never forgotten.

Thankfulness is the heart’s memory.

Thankfulness is reception into the heart’s repository.

Thankfulness is the opening/yawning of the heart.

Thought is structure and activity in mind.
Compare imagination, faculties of consciousness, intelligence, discrimination, reason, judgement

Time is the medium of change.

Time is the rate of change of matter.

I do not define time as a dimension, for time is in respect to each dimension to which it belongs, and within any respective dimension time runs in one direction, forward. Not in two directions, which is what defines a dimension.  (see here)  In its totality, time spreads out in all directions, due to existence and dimensions doing so, with every line of time spreading outward in all directions within its respective dimension, while being lineally intertwined at right angle around every other line of time and its respective dimension, so the fastest and the slowest rates of time all advance together upon the mighty present moment which exists everywhere, and so now is now in every rate of time. When out-of-body or in certain phases of attunement it is possible to view past occurrences and future possibilities, but one always exists in the now, just viewing forward or backward, across from one time to another, not actually travelling backward or forward in time, even though it may seem so.
Compare experiential information, communication package, inter-dimensional records,

Tolerance is putting up with.  Compare patience

Transgression is the crossing of boundaries; the breaking of discipline.

Trust is the recognition of the reliability of God.    Everything else, freewill, materials, is fallible.
Compare with fallibility.

Truth is how things are.

Truth is what exists.

Truth is reality.

Truth is all existence and its parts.

Truth is the sum total of all facts.  Compare facts, falsity.

Values, priorities, importance(s), are the same things, the differences are referential.

Values, priorities, importances.  All things conceived of by an individual have a value relative to one another. Some things are of highest value/priority/importance and other things are of little or no value/priority/importance. And everything we can conceive of lies somewhere upon our value spectrum. Our value spectrum is continually being rearranged by our judgement towards it eventually coinciding with reality. We possess many conflicting values upon a splintered spectrum, which fight each other for the same position. Circumstances, situations and dilemmas cause values to be activated and given our attention. We must solve such dilemmas, make our choices and thus subject our values/priorities to our judgement, set them in place according to our judgement, and thus organise and evolve our value layer/spectrum. We have our ingrained operative values by which we live. And we have our conceived better values, of which we may cite as being our values but we do not yet live by. Our ultimate task is to realise which values/priorities/importances coincide with reality and make them our operative values. Semi conscious automatic thought, emotion and behaviour (which most people run on most of the time) operates in accordance with our operative value spectrum and its relation to the current situation. Practicing being conscious, exercising reason, conscience, better judgement, analysis of self and situations, heightens our conscious operation of our self and quickens the evolution of our value spectrum towards alignment with reality.

generalisation, a pattern of similarity within a majority. A generalisation does not refer to all, everyone, or in every case, it refers to a recognisable pattern within a majority. Convection drives universe. All creation, from the most minute particles, to all existence with its every comprising dynamic, is driven by convection of some sort. Convection drives existence.  uUnderstanding – the seeing/ grasping/apprehension of what stands under; is freewill, comes of and is obtained by freewill,

Responsibility comes with freewill, whether accepted or not. Freewill may deny, not realise, or accept its responsibility, but regardless, responsibility is with freewill. When accepted and made conscious, responsibility is constant attention upon our own freewill. As freewill can be exercised selfishly or selflessly, so too conscious responsibility is exercised according to how we exercise freewill. Right responsibility is constant attention upon our own freewill, for the sake of others.

  • Definitions are the building blocks of precise thought.
  • Definitions enable clear communication.
  • Everything there is to know about something is within its definition, for a definition is an encapsulation.
  • The focus of a definition is not upon the centre of an item, but on its boundary. A definition is the inscribing of a boundary. It marks the edge where one definition ends and others begin.
  • Items have different angles from which they may be viewed. A definition may encapsulate the entire item, or may define its view from a particular side or angle. Another definition may define the item from another side or angle. Several definitions together may provide an allround view.
  • All things and all distinctions have three aspects, form, quality and function. A definitions may encapsulate either one, two or all three of these aspects.
  • Accurate definitions enable us to differentiate between what something is and what it is not, and that enables precise thinking. Definitions enable comparisons between things that are different, things that are similar, things that are adjacent, and things that are opposite. A definition provides contrast, and contrast clarifies. Definitions assist distinctions, and the ability to finely distinguish between one thing and another enables clear thinking.
  • All things can be viewed subjectively or objectively, that is, from within the item looking out from and through it, or from without the item looking at it, and as such can be described descriptively and theoretically or experientially. A definition may be a subjective or objective definition.
  • A description is a further elaboration of a definition; a breakdown of included lesser parts and their workings.
  • There are some descriptions included below too, but I have kept the focus mostly on definitions.
  • To acquire their benefit and proper use, a definition should be pondered on, contemplated, until it is well set in mind; and then it should be contemplated in comparison with those definitions adjacent, above, below, inclusive, exclusive and opposite to itself; and definition by definition fitted together in their places, so as to order one’s thinking and one’s understanding and knowledge.

This page is in continual progress. More definitions are added as terms are used in posts.

    Intelligence is the ability to see the difference and the relationship between things.

    Then why are some peole more intelligent than others?

    • crossbow says:

      The degree of intelligence is the degree of fineness to which one can discern differences and relationships between things. Improved intelligence is an acquired ability, developed over time and training, and particular use of awareness, mind and heart. Also due to exposure to certain concepts.
