The Inner-World’s Cosmology (Part1)

The Inner-World’s Cosmology (Part1)

By dispelling some of the old stereotypical views of Heaven and Hell it clears the way to show the deeper significance of the Bible greatest secrets. The great mystery is that the “World (Cosmos/Order)” of Creation is really the inner landscape of the psyche (Soul: All attributes of the mind) that is being transformed from chaos into order. But knowing how this inner dimensions is laid out should help clarify your readings significantly.

The inner landscape of the mind is broken up into 3 very specific parts. Remember you are the World of the Bible and as such your inner-world resembles the outer-world you live in, so the invisible reality resembles the physical reality around you in that there are 3 dominate features of the inner-world:

  1. Sky (Mind)
  1. Waters (Spirit)
  1. Earth (Body)

The inner-world is your psyche (Soul/All attributes of the mind) that is divided into 3 separate parts of distinct identity.

This is an ascending order of intellect that starts with the Lower Primitive-Self (Earth) that transitions through a medium of Self-Reflection (Waters/Firmament) into the Higher Ideal-Self (Heaven).

The way this inner-world is laid out works just like a mirror. On one side of a mirror is the physical form (Earth) and on the other side is the untouchable reflection of the physical form (Heaven). This is the Real-Self (Earth) that reflects into an Ideal–Self (Heaven). But since this is a mental world there is no physical person present but a side of the self that is tangible only by means of having a history of interactions. The Primitive Lower-Mind (Earth) also plays the part of the Tangible-Self (Firm) that grows through experiences. These experiences are your Past-Self’s understanding that create the foundation of who you are and thus it is the base layer of the Inner-World Cosmology.

In opposition to the Past-Self (Firm) is the Future-Self which is the lofty ideologies of your expectations. So the Past-Self faces its Ideal Future-Self through a medium of Truth that exist only in the moment of now. Thus Past and Future culminate in the Present where a constant turmoil is persistent as the two sides of your identity fight for dominance over each moment.

In The Beginning

This division of the inner-world is the primary focus of the entire Bible and it all starts with the very first verse in the Bible in Genesis 1:1.

Gen 1:1
In the beginning God created the heaven
and the earth

This verse is written in Ancient Hebrew and each word has more than one meaning especially if you change the context of how it’s viewed from a literal world view into a mental perspective.

Pay special attention to the words in red and note the progress as the verses translate from a physical world (Original text) into a mental (Alternate Translation) understanding.

רֹאשׁ (H7218)
רֵאשִׁית rêʼshîyth, ray-sheeth’; from the same as H7218; the first, in place, time, order or rank (specifically, a firstfruit):—beginning, chief(-est), first(-fruits, part, time), principal thing.

Firm (Self)

With the alternate perspective of a mental process rather than a physical world the image of “God” is transferred from a plurality of gods or judges into a multiple of judgments that govern your understanding within you, thus creating a higher-perspective of one unified judgment that plays the “God” of the inner-world. Also notice how the word for beginning is now also viewed as the Head in which the entire inner-world resides.

Original Translation (KJV)
Gen 1:1
In the beginning
God
created the heaven
and the earth
Alternate Translation (Hidden Bible)
In the head
judgment
creates the lofty-self and the firm-self

Notice also how the words Heaven and Earth in the verse changed to a Lofty-Self and Firm-Self through the translation process.

These two elements of “self” create a duality of identity, just like in a mirror of two truths where there is the Ideal (lofty) Self
(Heaven) of the reflection, and the Real (Firm) Self
(Earth) that is reflected within the medium of the True-Self
(Waters/Truth).

Future, Present, Past

Another way of understanding these elements are:

  • Future (Ideal Self): Who I think I can become
  • Present (Self): The who I am that that is the balance of future and past self
  • Past (Natural Self): Through experience life has made me think that I am

Your Future-Self is your ideal expectations that occupies the higher sense of self, and thus it “Lords” over the primitive Past (Natural) Self of the “Earth

The Future-Self is the mind’s desire to overcome the Past (Natural) Self and it creates an inner conflict because the Natural-Self is the default setting that you are inclined to gravitate to automaticity when you stop striving to overcome your basic nature. The balance of the two selves is an element we attribute to emotions. We call this attribute of emotional balance “Spirit“. It is the Spirit that compels the transition of Fate to Destiny. Fate is the situation you are born into but Destiny is what you create and thus we are driven to overcome our Fate by becoming closer to the God that drives us closer to Him. It is propulsion of the Spirit that encourages us to transform from a Brute Beast into a Man that is made in the Image of God.

Super Ego, Ego, Id

We also know of these 3 aspects of self as the:

  • Super Ego: (Higher Ideals That Drive Me) Ideological Desires (What I Expect)
  • Ego: (Self) Wanting It To Be About Me (How Do I Fit In? Who Am I Really?)
  • Id: (Basic Drives) Basic Desires (What I am Used To)

The Higher-Self is driven by a need for Order and Control. (This is as the God of the Old Testament)

The Middle-Self is constantly relating everything to the self (Transitional). (Also seen in the progress of the nation of Israel)

The Lower-Self just wants to feel good. (This is illustrated in pre-flood verses)

If the Higher-Self or the Lower-Self dominate the Inner-World it creates an imbalance in the psyche (Soul), but a balance of both identities creates the True (Middle) Self. This division of the self is seen as the “Waters” that are divided on the second day of Creation in the Bible.

Gen 1:6
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

In fact, each “day” (Step) of the Creation process details separate attributes of the Mind (Higher-Self), Spirit (Middle-Self) and Body (Lower-Self) identities.

Super Ego: Mind (Heaven)
Awareness: The Initiation of the Mind:

Light (Enlightenment) From Darkness (Ignorance)

(The Super Ego seeks to know):

Knowledge

Gen 1:3 And God (Ideal-Self) said, Let there be light (Enlightenment): and there was light (Enlightenment).
Gen 1:4 And God (Ideal-Self) saw the light (Enlightenment), that it was good: and God (Ideal-Self) divided the light (Enlightenment) from the darkness (Ignorance).
Gen 1:5 And God (Ideal-Self) called the light (Enlightenment) Day (Progress), and the darkness (Ignorance) he called Night (Regression). And the evening (Acceptance) and the morning (Reflect/Consider/Seek) were the first day (First stage of progression).
Ego: Spirit (Waters)
Choices: The Balancing of the Spirit:

Waters Divided (The divided ego):

Wisdom

Gen 1:6 And God (Ideal-Self) said, Let there be a firmament (Universal Mirror of Truth) in the midst of the waters (Spirit/Truth), and let it divide the waters (Spirit/Truth) from the waters (Spirit/Truth).
Gen 1:7 And God (Ideal-Self) made the firmament (Universal Mirror of Truth), and divided the waters (Spirit/Truth) which were under the firmament (Universal Mirror of Truth) from the waters (Spirit/Truth) which were above the firmament (Universal Mirror of Truth): and it was so.
Gen 1:8 And God (Ideal-Self) called the firmament (Universal Mirror of Truth) Heaven (Higher Understanding). And the evening (Acceptance) and the morning (Reflect/Consider/Seek) were the second day (Second stage of progression).
Id: Body (Earth)
Accumulating Information Through Experience of the Body:

Growing and Gathering Understanding Through Experience:

(Using the Id’s natural desires to accumulate experiences and grow higher understanding):

Actions

Gen 1:9 And God (Ideal-Self) said, Let the waters (Spirit/Truth) under the heaven (Higher Understanding) be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
Gen 1:10 And God (Ideal-Self) called the dry land Earth (Natural-Self); and the gathering together of the waters (Spirit/Truth) called he Seas (Self-Reflection): and God (Ideal-Self) saw that it was good.
Gen 1:11 And God (Ideal-Self) said, Let the Earth (Natural-Self) bring forth grass (Experience), the herb (Intellect) yielding seed (Prosperity/Progression/Potential), and the fruit (Understanding) tree (Wisdom) yielding fruit (Understanding) after his kind, whose seed (Prosperity/Progression/Potential) is in itself, upon the Earth (Natural-Self): and it was so.
Gen 1:12 And the Earth (Natural-Self) brought forth grass (Experience), and herb (Intellect) yielding seed (Prosperity/Progression/Potential) after his kind, and the tree (Wisdom) yielding fruit (Understanding), whose seed (Prosperity/Progression/Potential) was in itself, after his kind: and God (Ideal-Self) saw that it was good.
Gen 1:13 And the evening (Acceptance) and the morning (Reflect/Consider/Seek) were the third day (Third stage of progression).
