We Don’t See Deeply into the Deep Unconscious
Here’s an example of how our disciplines will probably change in the face of the new knowledge we’re coming into these days.
Freudian psychology, as far as I remember, divided the mind into the conscious, the subconscious, and the unconscious.
The conscious was our everyday state of mind.
The subconscious contained thoughts and feelings we’re not currently aware of, but which can easily be brought to consciousness.
The unconscious held our basic instincts – fight, flee, and you know, that other instinct.
I don’t claim to have been greatly interested in its core knowledge of the structure and process of consciousness or to have studied it deeply. I was more interested in patterns of human behaviour. At that time, the external rather than the internal. My interest changed over time.
Put another way, I was more interested in Eric Berne (1) than Sigmund Freud.
So I couldn’t give you the details of Freud’s discussion or any other discussion of the structure or process of the subconscious and the unconscious. Sorry.
But I do know that it paid very little attention to the soul (yes, a little), to the infinite nature of knowledge, to the existence of other worlds and dimensions, etc.
I know that this discussion limited, along with the discussions of almost everything else in the social sciences, by its adherence to the empirical-materialist model. That model says that only what we can see, hear, touch, taste, and smell is real.
Well, most of life is beyond the reach of our Third-Dimensional senses. Therefore most of life, in the eyes of social scientists, at least in their public moments, does not exist and is unreal.
Spiritual teachers may not talk about the empirical-materialist model per se. But they know it nonetheless.
For instance, Ramana Maharshi used to say that the primary cause of nescience, or ignorance, is the idea “I am the body,” a basic tenet of empirical materialism.
“The concept ‘I am the body’ is the primal ignorance. It is known as the firm knot of the heart. It gives rise to the concepts of existence and non-existence. If there is no trace of it at all, everything will be found to be the Reality of the Supreme Absolute Being.” (2)
One part of that ignorance happened when we starseed lightworkers left the higher dimensions and agreed to don these dense physical bodies. We thereby gave up access to all knowledge of our true identity and all capabilities and powers that went along with that in order to serve.
But we now know that what we call the deep unconscious is, or at the very least includes, all the knowledge that is lost to us from incarnating in this exceedingly-dense physical body.
Having been outside my body in the astral form, which is finer than the finest feather down, and re-entering my physical body consciously, which is denser than a lacrosse ball (try dropping a lacrosse ball; it doesn’t bounce), I saw and know that the physical body does not allow access to our finer feelings and the knowledge of who we truly are, etc.
I don’t think we see deeply into the deep unconscious. Rather than being the basement of the mind as early psychologists thought, I think it’s the higher-dimensional knowledge that we once knew and that, ultimately, is known only to God and those who, quoting Einstein, know God’s thoughts.
I’m sitting at a train station in Sacramento on the way to the Union and Reunion Gathering at Lake Tahoe. My train is three hours late and Suzi and Graham may have to go ahead without me to Tahoe. Not sure how I’ll get there, but I’m not concerned.
Archangel Michael in my last reading said I’d encounter a surprise or two on my train ride.
Steve Beckow: So is there going to be anybody on the train with me?
Archangel Michael: You may have a surprise or two.
SB: All right. Well, I’ll look forward to a surprise or two. (3)
And I think these two lightworkers, one of whom is eager to talk and hear about everything to do with the Golden Age, are that surprise. And, yes, as in all cases like this, I do less talking and more listening.
AAM also told me that readership of the blog will be expanding rapidly, globally, soon.
Archangel Michael: You may be very surprised. … We are all working not merely on the lightworker community, but on those who have still need to discover you [i.e., the blog and InLight Radio].
SB: What do you mean, Lord?
AAM: We are talking about substantially increased readership. We want the world to hear you [i.e., the blog and InLight Radio]. (4)
Maybe this is the way it begins.
Let me here do no more than simply introduce the notion of a revision of social-scientific disciplines and let Psychology stand as an example of the way our knowledge is going to change as we continue on the road to the higher dimensions.
