Life's potential, the seven layers of reality.

An introduction to the seven layers of reality. A map that provides for a structure to explore unconsciousness or the unknown. This abstraction can be seen as life's menu or the potential life holds.    

1. Introduction.

The fundamental principles of human nature show us that the way we experience reality is mainly determined by what resides in our unconsciousness. Expanding our consciousness then is the only sustainable way forward. Once we are aware of new elements that color and define our experience of reality, we obtain a new choice the moment […]

2. The first triangle “foreplay”.

The map of reality, as presented here, is made up of two opposite triangles, with a turning point in between, connecting both triangles. The map represents an abstraction of what is possible in a lifetime, it represents life’s potential and the different layers through which we can experience reality.  It will come as no surprise, […]

2.1. Security – the normal – the outside

For as long as we do not feel safe, our behavior is mainly driven by our instinct to survive. Our focus is on the outside world as it is in this world that danger lures. It is the healthy way by which we start our journey. We don’t question any potential or ambitions, as our […]

2.2. Outer senses – the good – the outside.

The second layer of consciousness and aliveness is the layer of our five senses. We explore and refine our experience of reality as we experiment with our sensory abilities. We are aware of our emotional, mental, and physical bodies. Depending on our character, one of these three bodies is mostly the drive, underneath our behavior. […]

In the third layer of reality, we’re focussed on attaining our ambitions. As we do, we obtain status and the power that comes […]

3. Love & devotion – the best – touched inside.

The experiences we co-create through-out the first layers of consciousness and aliveness depend on our energetic blueprint. The more we get in touch with our bodies, the better the experiences can be. But our choices, our behavior, and our stories are founded in our internal value hierarchy.  It all depends on the script our partners […]

4. The second triangle “making love”.

The second triangle is the realm of the inner journey. Our explorations are reflections of the journey we engage with from within. Now that we’ve touched upon love in a deeper sense, we bring it into our daily lives. Our experiences are no longer driven by fear but are an exploration of love and all […]

4.1. Inner senses – the dream – outside as inside.

The fifth layer of reality is about uncovering, exploring, and tuning our intuition or inner senses. Our intuition is the only tool that can guide us in the unknown. All of our bodies combined make up the instrument of our intuition. We slowly re-establish or clean up our connections to the environment. Uncovering our intuition […]

4.2. Discernment & equanimity – the unknown – outside as inside.

The sixth layer is the reality of discernment and equanimity.  As opportunities and possibilities expand by liberating ourselves from previous conditioning, discernment is the only way. Discernment has multiple dimensions; mind and heart, ourselves and the other, ourselves and life, emotion and intuition.  The practice of discernment expands and aligns our intuition. More and more, […]
