Your Background Structure

Yesterday I was speaking with Alex who has come to The School of Holistic Living (formerly Dreamspace) to learn the Inflow Matrix. He asked for more of an explanation in regards to Exercise 1 where you make a map out of the Harmony cards. What is shared here is a reiteration of what was said.

There is a FIELD of energy (transmission field) generated when two or more beings come together to express their Divinity. In the Bible it says when two or more of you are gathered I am there. You can feel when the Holy Spirit is present. The information that comes through both people is meant for both people to hear.

As you get more people involved, the FIELD has a higher chance of being fractured due to the state of the people present. What your WORLDVIEW is has a great effect on the FIELD and what happens within it.

The Harmony cards were spread out on the floor. (24 cards). So how do you make a map? What you are attempting to do is to find a pattern of relationships where all the concepts will make sense together. The left hemisphere can process 7+/- bits of information so most people will go into overwhelm when confronted with too many pieces to a puzzle.

So you are looking for a structure to hang the pieces on. It might be a story, a metaphor, an object, a diagram, a picture, an image...to use as a background to see how the concepts come together.

At some point you are going to have to group some of the concepts together. Without giving away too much, you have to find what is similair and what is different. Your process of doing so is very important to watch. What words organized in what order becomes your model or map of seeing the world. We are looking at words that organize a society.

The original idea came from Bela Banathy who had 9 dimensions of an evolutionary design system. The words at this level are the parts of a society needed to evolve itself.

If you have just 10 words they can be put into 10x9x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1 combinations....Thats 3,628,800 combinations that 10 words can be organized. You have 20 words in front of you. Yet the right hemisphere can handle that complexity and more. It just has to see the whole picture.

So how do you start? It's usually a good idea to start at the center. What is the central reference point of your map? The what branches off of it? How are your sub-components connected to the center? What is the nature of the sub components? What other abstract models are you bringing in? How universal are they? What is at the core of your own belief system?

What models do you use? Is it the 4 elements (fire, earth, air, water)? Is it the Father, Son & Holy Ghost? Is it the 7 chakras? Is it Time and Space? Is it God? Is it the Void? Is it Christ Consciousness? Is it Jesus Christ? Is it a well? Is it a Symbol of your Higher Self? Is it your Soul? Is it the Tree of Life? Is it a car? Is it the Unknown? Is it the Known? Is it the Force? Is it Love? Is it Freedom? Is it nothing at all?

You are mapping out your belief system. In order to find the background structure to put the Harmony Cards onto you have to look inside and see how you organize your abstract mind. This may be quite a challenge if you have never done it before.

Be ok with that.

Even if you have no idea what I am talking about, the process of organizing the cards into a pattern is a valuable one. 20 can be organized into 4 groups of 5. Which 5 concepts are you going to group together and why do they come together? What is the category that creates the connection between them? Thats a very important question.

You could have 1 concept in the middle and 6 groups of 3 and 1 concept outside everything. You could have two groups of 10 and a line drawn between them. You could put them all in a linear sequence. The key is the pattern has to make sense to you and you have to be able to explain it to someone else.

At some point you are going to realize that you are going to have to define the words....will you use the dictionary words or are you going to define them for yourself. Where do the definitions come from? And how are the definitions connected to how you organize the cards?
