1 (the multiple spheres of the full life / 1)
The full life is lived in the full reality.
The full reality comprises of multiple reality spheres, that differ from each other.
A sphere is a coherent expression world of a specific intelligence aspect of vital matter.
Although each of the different spheres has its own natural laws, every sphere includes all the other spheres.
In other words, all spheres are inextricably linked by unity of energy and intelligence,
and by one set of all-inclusive life laws.
You live in all spheres simultaneously.
You are simultaneously active as an inner force and as an outer force in the all-encompassing nature,
and the all-encompassing nature is simultaneously active as an inner force and as an outer force in you.
Depending on the focus and the concentration, and depending on the observation tools with which is identified,
communication is either familiar or unfamiliar with the influence of a sphere
And with the specific knowledge inherent in all the manifestations of the sphere.
The more familiar your communication is within the different spheres, the more full you will be in your earthly life.
2 (birth condition and death condition)
(the natural entity / the entity that you are, your shadow identity, your transit identity and your cultural identity)
An entity is a cocktail of vitalities – different both in strength and in nature.
The individuality of an entity is separate from the earthly manifestation;
the manifestation as earthly organism is one of the many expressions of the entity.
The energy of your birth condition has the eternal characteristic of the natural entity, the entity that you are.
It is your eternal energy, your you-are-energy, and this is
an energy of love,
an energy of freedom,
an energy of truth.
The energy of your death condition has the time-bound characteristic of your shadow identity.
It is your time-bound energy, your earthly shadow energy, and this is
an energy of passion,
an energy of dramatic activity,
an energy of illusion.
The interaction of your eternal energy of the birth condition and your time-bound energy of the death condition
makes the entity that you are move through earthly life.
Through how your eternal energy and your time-bound energy interact,
your earthly life is provided with defining motives.
In the material reality the manifestation of the entity that you are
can be perceived as a sequence of expressions of ever changing temporary characteristics.
This sequence of ever changing temporary characteristics together make up your transit identity.
The transit identity coincides with the role,
which the entity that you are got to play on the stage of the worldly circumstances.
And this role is performed by your cultural identity.
3 (every earthly life is a predestined dramatic trajectory)
The framework of the content (the spiritual aspect) of your dramatic trajectory is determined
by the way the energy of your birth condition relates to the energy of your death condition,
in other words, by how the characteristics of these two different energies interact.
Your natural conditions of arrival in earthly life and departure from earthly life, or birth and death, are predestined.
The moment of your arrival has a given natural condition
and the moment of your departure has another, also given, natural condition.
During your earthly life the energy of your birth condition and the energy of your death condition are continuously working
upon each other.
The interaction of these two dramatic forces makes the entity that you are move through earthly life.
In other words, the interaction of these two dramatic forces ensures
that in your earthly life the entity that you are as transit identity covers a dramatic trajectory.
The framework of the form (the material aspect) of your dramatic trajectory is determined
by your given earthly circumstances of time and place; your cultural conditions – both worldly and biological –
on arrival in your earthly life and on departure from your earthly life
which, just like your natural conditions, are predestined.
And this means that each life, lived on this earth,
is both the expression of an entity that is
and the expression of a place and a time.
4 (dramatic trajectory and being known)
The difference in energy between your birth condition and your death condition is an identification tool.
Because it is connected to your own truth – both of the entity that you are and of your earthly destiny –
it is a guiding identification tool.
The dramatic trajectory that your earthly life is, allows you to be known;
the entity that you are can be known by your cultural identity,
and the entity that you are can be known both by an entity that is the other and by another cultural identity.
To be known as the entity that you are is the condition
that allows your cultural identity to give love and to receive love.
By giving love and receiving love your cultural identity lives in familiar contact with Love.
Because Love extends beyond the boundaries of birth and death,
your cultural identity can make itself free of the time-space continuum through living in familiar contact with Love.
When your cultural identity is free of the time-space continuum,
it has the ability to communicate with the knowledge that is available in the other spheres of the full reality.
These communications enable your cultural identity to see (and again and again see) your own defining motives.
And with that your own dramatic trajectory and with that the role, which the entity that you are got to play on the stage
of worldly circumstances.
And if you see (and again and again see) the role, which the entity that you are got to play on the worldy stage,
and your cultural identity makes arrangements accordingly,
then you live your truth,
then you will be in your life,
then you will experience the meaning of your earthly life,
then you have mental, emotional and physical calm.
5 (dramatic trajectory and transit identity)
During earthly life the energy of the birth condition and the energy of the death condition are continuously working upon
The interaction of these two dramatic forces,
makes the entity that you are move through earthly life.
Both the birth condition and the death condition are full characters and these two characters relate to each other
in a unique relationship, as any relationship between any two individuals is unique.
Unique in the kind of relationship: (exclusively or a combination of) loved ones, friends, enemies, work partners, family members,
acquaintances, and so on.
Unique in the temperament of the relationship: (exclusively or a combination of) passionate, enthusiastic, private, idealistic,
public, hateful, stimulating, competitive, equanimous, jealous, indifferent, and so on.
Unique in the nature of the relationship: (exclusively or a combination of) mental, emotional, physical.
The kind, the temperament and the nature of the relationship between the eternal characteristic of the birth condition and the
time-bound characteristic of the death condition, thus determines how the entity that you are moves through earthly life.
In other words, determines the character of the functioning of your transit identity.
No matter how harmonious or how tumultuous this functioning may be, the experience that is earthly life,
has meaning for the entity that you are,
as long as you can see (and again and again see) the role, which the entity that you are got to play on the worldly stage.
In other words, when the cultural identity has made its arrangements so that there is space within your earthly life
for a continuous familiar communication between your different manifestations and the knowledge
that is available to them in the different spheres of the full reality.
6 (conditioned identity – bound dependence and unbound dependence)
The bonds of youth are characterized by bound dependence.
Like anyone who needs postnatal care for the primary needs,
you developed a conditioned identity in your youth.
Of the entity that you are, this is the first identification as a worldly I.
This conditioned identity is the total of learned and reacting
patterns of thinking, patterns of feeling and patterns of behaving.
The entity that you are lives in a state of dependence with the caregivers.
This bound dependence of the child-caregiver bond can be binding or non-binding.
For anyone who has developed a conditioned identity,
after the biological phase of youth is over,
a second identification of the entity that you are as worldly I is essential.
In order to move on to the mature state of unbound dependence.
This unbound dependence of the adult bond is always binding.
Unbound dependence is the hallmark of the bond, in which the possibility of knowing one another is embedded;
an entity that is the other can be known by the entity that you are
and the entity that you are can be known by an entity that is the other.
Unbound dependence is the hallmark of the bond between two individuals who are in their lives;
giving and receiving is the bi-directional nourishment of this bond between love and love,
a bond that never cools and extends beyond the boundaries of earthly life and death.
When this state of unbound dependence is your state at the moment of death,
then you leave your earthly life as a known identity.
And every unbound dependent bond that you had, will continue as know-bond
for as long as the other, with whom you have this bond, is living.
Binding is the bound dependence of childhood, when there is love in the situation of your upbringing.
As a child you receive confirmation of the entity that you are and your first worldly I will stay in touch with your birth condition.
When the bound dependence of youth was binding, the practice of the second identification as initiation into adulthood is:
an evaluation of your first identification,
and a reaffirmation of your conditioned identity as your appropriate cultural identity.
When you manage to make this transition from bound dependence to unbound dependence,
then the bonds of youth will remain binding.
And new bonds that are entered will be characterized by unbound dependence.
Non-binding is the bound dependence of childhood, when there is lack of love in the situation of your upbringing.
As a child you receive no confirmation of the entity that you are, so the possibility is high that your first worldly I loses touch
with your birth condition.
When the bound dependency of youth was non-binding, the practice of this second identification as initiation into adulthood is:
an evaluation of your first identification,
a break with your first identification,
and replacing your conditioned identity with your appropriate cultural identity.
7 (bound dependence, that is non-binding – fixed identity)
A conditioned identity, which as initiation into adulthood has not been evaluated by the entity that you are,
becomes a fixed identity.
If you developed a conditioned identity in which the contact with your birth condition has been lost,
you will remain a flawed child,
until the entity that you are has managed to deal with the pain, that lies at the root of this loss.
As long as this is not the case, the bound dependence that is non-binding remains intact
and each bond that is entered into will also be characterized by a bound dependence that is non-binding.
Bound dependence that is non-binding is the hallmark of an addict’s bond with a stimulant.
Taking is the one-way traffic of the non-binding bond the addict has with the stimulant.
For the addicted individual ‘being in your life’ remains out of reach, until the entity that you are
has managed to break with the distorting conditionings that prevent you to be known and to know.
In your youth the entity that you are was defeated by your conditioned identity
and to mature, the entity that you are will have to defeat your fixed identity.
Because the fixed identity consists of patterns, it is in the material sphere of the full reality
that the entity that you are separates from frustrations, neuroses, traumas, and so on.
In other words, that the entity that you are breaks down your fixed identity and replaces it with an appropriate cultural identity.
The entity that you are does this by using instruments that have been developed and that are available in this sphere.
So that the informations from the other spheres of the full reality (which remain available to the entity that you are)
are being captured in forms, that your fixed identity can understand.
The more motivated the entity that you are is,
to confront the causes of the blockage and to relive these with the innocence of a newborn,
the more accurate will be the forms by which the informations are passed on to your fixed identity.
The mature state is reached when the entity that you are has acquired a cultural identity,
that is most appropriate to give expression to your transit identity.
When this state of unbound dependence is not your state at the moment of death,
then you leave your earthly life as an unidentified entity.
8 (a happy life)
No life is happier or more unhappy than any other life.
Whether your earthly life is happy or unhappy is an experience.
An experience of the entity that you are.
Each earthly life is a dramatic trajectory, of which the framework of the content and the framework of the form are predestined.
Each earthly life is therefore an appropriate life for the one who is living it.
But the more optimally you play the worldly role you got to play,
the fuller you are in your earthly life and experience it as a happy life.
Your cultural identity is the performer of your role.
Depending on whether your cultural identity is either less or more familiar with your role,
the role is interpreted, decisions regarding the role are made,
ideas about the role are formed, techniques to play the role are developed,
the co-players are estimated, the co-players are responded to,
the situation is assessed, the situation is reacted to,
there is reflection about the role and there are experiences in playing the role.
Whether the experience of earthly life is negative or positive depends on the extent to which the entity that you are
as a worldly I has the appropriate cultural identity to perform the role that the entity that you are got to play on the stage
of the world.
In other words, a cultural identity that is capable of moving with and giving expression to your transit identity.
With an appropriate cultural identity, both the entity that you are and your cultural identity are familiar with your defining motives,
whereby the division is eliminated and the interaction of information from their respective spheres is continuous.
In other words, within your earthly life there is a continuous familiar communication between your different manifestations
and the knowledge available to them in the various spheres of the full reality.
If you are biologically mature and have little insight into your role, this means that your cultural identity is a (partly) fixed identity.
The entity that you are disappears in your fixed identity and thus in your role,
as long as the entity that you are and your cultural identity are not both familiar with your defining motives.
Is this the case, then the entity that you are acquires this familiarity
by making contact (and making contact again and again) with your transit identity.
In other words, to periodically focus on the material and then communicate in full
with the specific knowledge that is inherent in all manifestations within the material sphere of the full reality.
And your cultural identity acquires this familiarity
by making contact (and making contact again and again) with the entity that you are.
In other words, to periodically focus on the immaterial and then communicate in full
with the specific knowledge that is inherent in all manifestations within the immaterial spheres of full reality.
9 (living a life, having a life, being in a life)
LIVING A LIFE
(as opposed to being dead)
is a universal biological term.
Living a life is being here.
It is a natural state.
A natural state in a natural environment.
A natural state in which death comes and goes.
A natural state that is unbridled dramatic.
A natural state that is both material and spiritual.
A natural state in which the cultural identity is a direct expression of the natural entity.
Lives that are lived are full lives.
(In lives that are lived the transition, from the phase coinciding with the conditioned identity
to the stage where the transit identity is being recognized and acknowledged, is an organic event.)
HAVING A LIFE
is a pathological term, specifically valid for cultures that have an exploitative attitude towards nature.
Having a life is moving within one of the moulds offered by these cultures.
Having a life is being with it.
Pro or anti, but being with it, belonging to the culture.
Having a life is a fiction, or, a cultural translation of the natural.
It is a cultural state in a cultural environment.
A cultural state in which death – if it exists at all – is something that is feared or hated.
A cultural state that is dramatic just in appearance.
A cultural state that is only material.
A cultural state in which the cultural identity is a fixed identity that exploits the natural entity.
Lives that are had are flat lives.
(In lives that are had the transition, from the phase coinciding with the conditioned identity
to the stage where the transit identity is being recognized and acknowledged, is blocked.)
BEING IN A LIFE
is a generally valid dramatic term.
Being in a life is experiencing the meaning of earthly life.
It is a natural state.
A natural state in a cultural environment.
A natural state with death as constantly present measure.
A natural state that is both material and spiritual.
A natural state, in which the cultural identity interacts with the natural entity.
Lives in which one is are full lives.
(In earthly lives that are experienced the transition, from the phase coinciding with the conditioned identity
to the stage where the transit identity is being recognized and acknowledged, is the first step to the mature state
of unbound dependence.)
10 (about a political revolution in the 'western world')
Without a widespread change in the understanding of the full reality and with it the nature of death, no political revolution has
any chance of success.
In my final analysis, the concept that forms the core of the foundation of every civilization is the life-death concept. Within a
certain culture, all cultural conventions come from a jointly endorsed life-death concept. In other words, a specific understanding
of the connection between life and death, which – for whatever reason – is so dominant that it has been able to generate conventions,
is a concept about which – in one way or another – a consensus exists.
That within a certain culture all cultural conventions, and thus all institutions, are inspired by the same life-death concept, applies
to all areas of this culture (artistic, scientific, sociological, spiritual, etc.). For example, the field of literature; every
manifestation within this area (the literary works, the publishers, the commentaries, the winners, etc.) is – in form and content –
an expression of the core concept that prevails. Whatever the superficial theme may be, every literary work that is included in the
canon is an exposition of the dominant concept of life and death.
The life-death concept that is at the core of our culture (patriarchal, capitalist, militaristic, etc.) shows a laughable ignorance.
Not less ignorant than to claim that the sun circles around the earth. As a result, people can 'have a life', but 'living a life' is
very rare. As may be clear from what precedes this, I use 'living a life' for the condition in which the meaning of a life is experienced
by the person who lives it. And in our society experiencing one's own life is rare, precisely because experiencing a life is only possible
when there is a realistic (and therefore a healthy) connection with death.
The time-space continuum is an atmosphere in which cause and effect reign. This sphere is only a small part of the full reality
within which our lives are lived, but as a rule it is the only sphere that is recognized as real in our culture. Because Love manifests
itself only in the material sphere for those who have familiar communication within multiple spheres of full reality, a far-reaching
consequence of the dominant view of reality is that love in its universal variety is not only absent in most individual lives, but also
is banned from the public domain. In an 'order' that 'functions' in all its parts according to hierarchical relations, Love manifests
itself only in lives that the public representatives of the dominant order categorize – more or less openly – as useless burdens.
Without a widespread change in the concept of the nature of death, and in the connection of death with life, a political revolution can
result in an overthrow of existing structures, but it will never succeed in replacing them with a blueprint for a new kind of society.
11 (the multiple spheres of the full life / 2)
Notes about the four reality spheres within which I have familiar communication.
The material sphere.
This is the sphere that manifests itself as the material universe within which earthly life is lived.
It is the home sphere of your shadow identity and, associated with it, your transit identity.
If this sphere is shielded from the other spheres it expresses itself in patterns.
Here the laws can be found that the material reality corresponds to
and on which the material sciences focus.
It is the only sphere in which the time-space continuum has validity as a linear phenomenon, and with it the cause-effect dictation.
As a consequence, this is the only sphere in which an expression of the entity that you are has a time-bound aspect,
that covers a dramatic trajectory with a beginning and an end.
(Laws of life are outside the scope of of the material sciences, because those can only be found when the focus is on
more than one sphere of the full reality.)
(For those who 'have a life', compulsive meat consumption is one of the ways to – unfamiliar – communication
within the immaterial spheres of the full reality.)
– The sphere of the circles.
Your earthly circumstance is a cocktail of biological and worldly data, the composition of which is unique.
In any given of your various cultural conditions you are part of a circle of relatives.
Which makes that your cultural identity is connected with a unique mix of circles of relatives
(and through your circles of relatives with circles of relatives of relatives, and through your circles of relatives of relatives
with circles of relatives of relatives of relatives, etc.).
In the sphere of the circles your cultural identity can get knowledge of experiences,
that are stored in the memories of your circles,
because you function as a transmitter and receiver that is in constant communication with everyone you are related to.
And because in the sphere of the circles past, present and future coincide (and here and there coincide), your cultural identity
is able to actually observe the present, the past and the future (and the here and there)
not only of your own transit identity, but of each transit identity with which it is related.
(In the form of falling in love, this sphere is part of the materially focused culture, in which falling in love is mostly seen
as a temporary foolishness of the individual. And by categorizing falling in love as temporary foolishness is being prevented
that the concept of reality, about which a consensus exists, is adjusted.)
(In this sphere your cultural identity – whether familiar or unfamiliar – will undergo the origin of your earthly existence.
The great creation stories from different cultures are attempts to formulate the information that comes from this sphere.)
– The sphere of the natural entities
The sphere of the natural entities is the sphere in which you communicate when you realize the eternal characteristic of the
entity that you are.
The realization of your eternal characteristic is similar to the realization of time and place.
Which makes that the time (and thus past, present and future), as well as the place (and thus here and there) dissolve.
The entity that you are is a unique cocktail of vitalities.
Every ingredient of the cocktail is part of the whole of vitalities
and thus in every part your natural entity is inextricably bound to the universe, with which there is a continuous, current,
unbound dependent bond.
You are a transmitter and receiver, in continuous, uninterrupted, comprehensive communication with everything that is.
In this sphere, your cultural identity – whether familiar or unfamiliar – undergoes the unbound dependent bond with all
forms of existence,
and your cultural identity – whether familiar or unfamiliar – undergoes the unbound dependent bond with the cosmos.
In this sphere, all entities can be recognized as enchanting in their beauty.
– The sphere of vital matter.
With you, vital matter is a non-explanatory manifestation of the inexplicable mystery.
The sphere of vital matter is the home sphere of the entity that you are.
It is a sphere of tranquility, where mobility is the norm.
In the sphere of vital matter you are as unbreakable, undiscernible wholeness simultaneously as inner force and outer force operative;
in this sphere the inside and the outside of the entity that you are is one.
In the sphere of vital matter you are inseparable from the united, all-encompassing nature, that is your food and for which
you are food.
In the sphere of vital matter, all boundaries between the individual energies and intelligences have been solved, without that
the individuality of the entities is lost; in this sphere individual and mass is one.It is the sphere in which the entity that you are manifests itself in its purest expression.
