– ”our actuality” beyond theory, description or depiction, for “how to be in relation with one’s whole”
We are a part of our whole. That’s you or me as self or identity, a part of a whole individual being. And the individual whole being we’re a part of is, in turn, a part of Reality (capital R to distinguish Reality that our whole being is of, from “our reality”).
Our reality is in essence conscious, experience and self. Furthermore there is a witness – by which we may be aware of what is witnessed, of our self, consciousness as well as what is experienced (circularity is an aspect within of our lineal reality, as are foundationalism and infinitism – Munchhausen’s trilemma). While it extends towards our deeper being, subconscious, and to realms and dimensions beyond our cognitive or knowing consciousness, fundamentally, our reality is a “projected” part, all of it.
Projection is “our actuality”, the existence of our reality and its components, projected or placed in space, in particular shapes and places, by our whole, through the Central Nervous System (CNS – brain and spinal cord). In approaching our actuality and referring to our whole, we may be in relation with our whole.
“A process of Reality” ensues, of our becoming a part. We become more of a part in our reality, initially extending behind in our depth, then in breadth, and in depth below, through levels and layers of consciousness, experience and being. Barriers and blocks, passages and processes may be reached, released and resolved. It is what happens, a process of integration, in relation with our whole.
We may become familiar with aspects of this process, of various stages and ways to facilitate, for both our self in it and for others, This process and indeed our actuality however, is not of our normal sense and understanding, of experience we can grasp with our mind across a separation of subject (the self) and object (what is experienced). Rather, we, as self or identity, are involved as part in our actuality, in an innate process and understanding from beyond us, which must be attributed to our transcendent whole being of Reality, transcendent beyond our part.
Normally, we are separated from our whole being, within our projected reality. There are 4 layers or degrees to this separation : 1) a part is never the whole and displaces its whole to where the whole is transcendent of or beyond the part, leaving the part with the “rest of whole” (diag. right) and 2) we are displaced in place and substance from the whole self in being projected through the CNS in our actuality as projection. Within our projected part, 3) we are differentiated and displaced in our self and identity, separated from other parts of our reality (such as the conscious, deeper being, what we experience, and witness), and 4) isolated from our whole in identifying exclusively in our self (subject) with what we experience (object), through having experience (verb).
Having experience is not a problem. We can capture our projected reality in space, approach our actuality and refer to our transcendent whole, to initiate and perpetuate our relation with our whole.
3 things you can do while you connect with your transcendent whole, not all of that time but from time to time – for timing and choice, rely on instinct for what is uncertain rather than pretending to know :
1) Everything is a part of their whole – a message you can announce to your various self-s or parts
2) Everything is material for referring to the whole – in their actuality; including the positive and negative states, places and experiences of differing dimensions you may get to
3) Look to a relation with your whole – as a part; in all that you achieve, receive, become or get to; this is our goal in being part, for both our self and all that we may experience
Our tendency is to narrowly identify within our part and so be isolated from our whole. We also tend to identify as we shift to a different (new) experience and dimension in our relation with our whole. Therefore, to start and keep going :
1a) Promote your part – introduce space, extend, approach your actuality (to be “more presentable” to your whole and “maker”)
1b) Promote your whole – posture, trunk-al extent (so there is something of the whole to receive your part)
2) Refer to your transcendent whole – the core is the reference for, the other-end a clue to a whole being of Reality (beyond our reckoning and effort, because they are limited by our being a part)
3) Repeat 1) Promote (part and whole) and 2) Refer – to “winch” closer to being a part; pulling on the winch to promote your relationship with your whole, and releasing to allow and let go to your whole
For our tendency towards an isolating identification, we need effort. But then must refer to our transcendent whole to go beyond both our reckoning and efforts, because they are limited in our being a part. We may become familiar with the levels and layers of our reality and their unfolding through integrating with our whole. This knowing can be used to promote our part (step 1a in “winching”). As we become more of a part, there is less of a leap between the conscious act of promoting (step 1) and referring or presenting to the whole being (step 2). Our connecting with our whole becomes “smoother”, having initiated it with “winching”, and leads to a relation with our whole.
