How do you know you are your reality?
You can hang a mirror on a wall and see yourself reflected in the wall, also part of the wall. Write a poem and hang it on a wall and there you are, your thoughts made into physical reality. Build a house, and who you are is also now also your reality of what surrounds you. The people you meet in your life reflect you, your state of vibration and awareness; we are me-mirrors to each other.
We are more than just a body. Part of who we are includes our reality of where we find self: the reality of the self. The Soul is reflected in the birds, the sky, what you see around you as well as what you know within you. If you have an idea, then the birds may sing in resounding to that idea. That is the soul expressing itself simultaneously as the idea, the birds singing to it, and you having the idea.
The Mind is the Creation of the Soul. The Soul creates entire landscapes of physical manifestation, which is the Creation Within the Source of the Self. Reflection applies here as well because as you are more than what you know of yourself to be, then there must be information that can be perceived to show this, that the greater portion of the self is divided by the self and what is away-from-the-self, but is inseparable as a unity of a one. Often times the reflection you see is also of your greater being, as a unity inseparable. You may be very attuned to your Soul, so that you are able to commune with yourself on a higher level, possibly by listening to your own Soul, and being taught by your own Higher Eternal Identity.
Self Realization is the knowing that one's existence is beyond what one considers the self to be. This pertains directly to Ascension, because when one evolves, then one's entire reality will also evolve in order to reflect the mirror of self and reality, and because one is not separate from one's own reality. Some of that is discussed in the Philosophy blog.
That knowledge is extraordinarily complex. The reading list on the home page introduces it, but only you can master it.
Ascension is a Creative process, which requires active participation for one to create one's own reality.
It is the process of Reality Creation which has led to the completion of warp drive physics.
How do you Ascend? You must Create your "self" to Ascend. For more information about the Self, and Soul, read the "Three Creative Dilemmas" on the metaphysics blog. Everything is Creation. God is Creation, and not removed from Creation. Identity and Action is Creation, and is Consciousness, the fabric of all form, geometry, and reality constructs. The Prime Original Act of Creation simultaneously established the Identity of God. Source of All Life, Source of All Creation, is a reality even in physics. The Big Bang is considered a common point of Origin, as the universe's source, the prime event of creation of the universe. Light itself is the origin of the physical universe. The Creation of Light is the Illumination Event of Mind's realization of Soul, and of Love as being the Source of all Life. It is when the Soul realizes through action of Mind, illuminating fields of consciousness as that creation of light-form (when the Mind realizes what the Soul innately Knows).
All of Life must work together, in paradox, for there to be existence. Just as the animals work with the plants, and all the systems of life work in harmony; a single child could not exist without a mother and father. Yet the Human being isn't the result of life, because a Human requires land to stand on and air to breath, and so planets exist BECAUSE Humans exist. That is why Love is the original Word of Creation, because even in a fight, there is oneness of two in equal participation as the dance of light and shadow. All is Love. Fear is the denial of just that. Fear only exists in the physical universe where the existence of the paradox is creatively expressed as that form of energy and matter. Beyond the paradox, in Unity fields of Creation, fear does not exist, because there is no separation experienced, or known.
That is very complex and so it has not been particularly favored in the philosophy and metaphysics of this website. The dragon philosophy is preferred, because that pertains to Life Force, which is what these physics is based upon. In higher vibrations, evil is ignorance, which limits form and being from being able to evolve and to vibrate in higher dimensions of life. Let me clarify: "Evil is ignorance" is seen as truth from a higher vibration of Knowing and Awareness.
Ascension is the evolution into the higher vibration of planetary life. When one's vibration is raised sufficiently enough, then that creates one's perceived and experienced reality to be an experience of more frequent Love (higher frequency of Life). The lower energy states, frequencies, and darker experiences of reality disappear when one's conscious awareness and energy state is elevated into a higher frequency without inner conflict (the conflict of self with reality; that drama of self-destructive action, co-dependently shared with those who vibrate alike).
