Chaos is Your Friend
Glenn WillardOctober 27th 2018
The cycle of consciousness is not a circle but an expanding spiral because our experiences are constantly changing and upgrading, as does our perception of reality.
We do not always have the same response with similar occurrences because of subtle differences in circumstances, attitudes, environment, people around us, moods, times of day, week, or month and other immeasurable energy levels that permeate us. Yet we are constantly recycling the same thoughts because of personal belief structures, cultural expectations, and simple habit.
When returning to conscious mind from the sleep/dream state we sometimes are aware of an energy field of what could be termed chaos. We occasionally become aware of this field of consciousness when dropping off to sleep as well. We will see hypnogogic images float past in our mind’s eye. Some refer to these as hallucinations – but are they?
The word hallucination has connotations such that it is something to be dismissed, has no importance, cannot be thought of seriously and should be disregarded. But wait, there are much more to them than just fleeting images that appear and disappear in your mind. Could they be messages, or information that is useful to you?
Images in the minds eye can be likened to words. Words are not real but represent ideas that can be used to communicate concepts to others. We’ve all heard the cliché a picture is worth a thousand words. When an image appears in your mind it is as a thousand words. But when we have hundreds of images appear and they have no seeming relationship – what are we to make of it?
People report having downloads of massive amounts of information in a short time. There is so much information that the content is unknown until they have had time to process it. This can take weeks or even months. Could there be a relationship between hypnagogic images and downloads? Are the images we see translatable to useful concepts?
We do not all think alike (thank Krishna). Yet, since we are all one, there is only one mind. And if we all share this One Mind it can appear in the form of chaos. Yet, when we expand our minds beyond the little me to include a much larger scope our inner dialogue diminishes to fewer and fewer words. We start thinking in concepts and emotions rather than words.
When seeing images in the mind’s eye there is a tendency to identify and name what we see, to analyze and try to make sense of it. The information is too massive to put in a box and label it. So we often just right it off as “hallucination”.
There is a need to relax – to see without the decoding or encoding, without judging or analyzing. Just observe and enjoy the show. The meanings may or may not eventually trickle into the conscious mind.
We are transitioning into a new dimensional reality. During this transition we are passing through an unstable period of shifting time lines, which can be thought of as chaotic. To have a positive future time line we must keep our thoughts and desires positive. There is much polarity and some people may need to continue on a third dimensional plane to complete karmic lessons. The transitional phase pulls us in many directions simultaneously, so we need to keep grounded and clear. At times chaos actually adds clarity rather than confusion.
This transition phase is natural and needed.
From the group ‘Kansas’ Carry on Wayward Son, 1976
Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher
But I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I’m dreaming
I can hear them say
Carry on my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more
Chaos may not actually exist. It may just be forms, images, sounds, and energies we have yet to comprehend. Chaos is your friend.
