The Conscious Mind

From Nikola Tesla: “The conscious mind, according to recent physicists recently, is aware of perhaps ten percent of the true nature of reality, and from my present vantage point I would tend to agree. I have already mentioned studies that show how easily distracted this mind can be: if you attention is too focused on an action in front of you, peripheral things may be seen yet they are not perceived: stage magicians depend upon this constantly in using misdirection. There are those who have skill with hypnosis who can help you recall what was not seen and yet, at the same time, the very semi-conducting state of hypnosis can allow confusion between the conscious, subconscious and unconscious to the point that fantasies may be implanted which are then perceived as real. 

“I have also spoken of the “strobe-light” flicker fusion of the conscious mind so that sine-wave-like functions are perceived as episodic and episodic functions are perceived as waves and flows of simple actions, fields and forces. The multi-dimensional nature of Reality also clouds the conscious mind’s perceptions as anyone who notices or engages directly with the strange, off-side aspects of dreams, psychic perception and channeling, to say nothing of hypnosis, ‘recreational’ and other drugs or even strokes, which are capable of astonishing effects, from granting someone with a sudden ability to play piano or an English accent.

“The true point I am trying to make here is that the conscious mind is strangely ephemeral and fragile: it is not the natural state of humanity in a very real way, for Heaven is your natural home. However: as you understand more and more about yourselves, your own minds, your own ability and function to be a bridge between the many enfolded and unfolded dimensions, the conscious mind will change itself to include more of perception\. As has been said elsewhere, ‘The subconscious mind will become part of the conscious mind, and the unconscious mind will become as accessible as the subconscious.'” 

Soul Pain: Conclusion

From Nikola Tesla: “In your human existence, apparent chance can create harm or joy, fear or security. It may seem untoward that so many bad things happen to good people and so many bad of evil people seem to escape the consequences of their harm, hatred, abuse or viciousness. Granted, if you believe in or have even experienced those moments of life-review where your life is played out in living detail, you will perhaps have a feeling, if not an understanding for sure, that everything you do will be returned to you in those moments if not in other lives. The original meaning of Karma was ’cause and effect’ rather than punishment and it is the same with the afterlife: you will be shown the consequences of what you have done and will feel them one by one.

“However, your failings, wrongs, acts of unkindness or cruelty will not be fuel for God’s fires: they will be fuel for the own fires of your remorse. To see the huge impact of just one act of kindness or one act of cruelty is an astonishing thing, because you will not only be shown the immediate effects but the far ramifications of those effects. One action can affect millions.

“However, rather than fear to do anything wrong, you can trust in three things: first, that it is always you who sets up your lives and your lessons in those lives: the Divine Being is neither vindictive or hating but is rather continually astonished by and through love and joy. Second, you and your soul are allowed to grow at its own pace: there is no demand that you must learn what you cannot learn. Third, all the wounds, hurts, harms, losses, voids, gaps and loveless places will be healed, completely, and given Grace, completely.

More on Soul Pain

From Nikola Tesla: “Soul wounds can indeed be created by difficult situations, by impossible choices or situations where you are helpless to change a terrible outcome. However, soul wounds can also be caused by the slow, incessant grinding of lack, loss, frustration or denial as well as through shock, terror, horror, betrayal or harm. For, disenfranchisement, living in situations of condescending belittlement, helplessness, hopelessness and despair wear holes in the soul’s fabric; like a pressure sore on an invalid, these wounds can become so deep that they fester and can even turn the soul septic.

“As with a body, the soul’s septicemia is not part of the body: it is the body’s reaction to a situation: septicemia for a soul actually leads to perpetrating acts of cruelty, especially to the helpless and innocent, much as infection creates fever in the body: if and when the soul is trapped deeply in pain it loses its natural qualities of loving-kindness, empathy, joy, creativity, integrity, graciousness and compassion. From this point of view, the devils among you do not need punishment: they need true healing: soul healing, healing of the spirit, mind, body and emotions.

“Healing a vicious, unkind, or sociopathic person needs actions in all the realms of his human expression: gaps and voids in the brain need healing; imbalances and lacks in the body and its intricate systems need healing; the emotions need time and care to turn around from helpless rage into calm understanding; the person’s spirit will demand anything from a re-infusion of joy or creativity to the simple understanding that all is well because this person was created in love by Love Itself.

“Understandably, this kind of work may take lifetimes, and time in between lives as well. However, when the true complexities of how you relate to your soul and how your soul relates to you, there will be ways of protecting this person from trauma, frustration or agony in the first place, so that th4e infection cannot take hold.”

Soul Pain

From Nikola Tesla: “It seems absurd to talk about soul pain: after all, the human soul is that very fragment of the Divine Being that knows no harm, yes? What could harm the soul, after all? Demons, perhaps, or God’s own disdain?

“Generally, though, there are no demons save those which the mind has created, whether in this world or the next. If you enter Heaven with the conviction that demons exist and than you must surely be tormented by them then this is very likely to happen, unless perhaps loving prayers remind you that the God is the Source of Love and Love is the Source of God. Besides: I am speaking of how your soul pain affects your daily life. So again: what kind of thing might cause the soul pain?

“Soul wounds are created when you face an impossible situation, such as having to decide which child to sacrifice in a disaster or a war, or being told by your own divine guidance to kill everyone in your village when you do not, and cannot know, that they will surely die in the next morning in any event because the hordes of Genghis Khan are going to come in and slaughter everyone living anyway. If you had gathered the courage to follow the divine inspiration, the horde would have found such a mystery that it would have turned away from the track it was taking and thus save countless more lives. Even though the demand was almost too heavy to bear in the first place, the wound you might receive from knowing that you betrayed your own guidance and so many lost their lives gouges in the pain, twisting the knife of guilt and shame so deeply that the soul is, indeed wounded.

“A life of continual frustration; a life where you are continually put down and relegated to Untouchable status; a life where you are constantly being asked to do more than you can and excoriated whenever you fail, even a little: these are all examples of lives that can create soul wounds and thus true soul pain.”
