The level (kosha) of the intellect is one of relationship, also known as subtle or sacred geometry. Points of awareness create relationships that lead to geometry and structure. Sound modulates this, giving rise to form.
Deeper still, on the causal level, is what we might call templates or blueprints, patterns for those geometries to follow.
Many of these templates are ideal forms or optimal patterns. The layers of resistance, unresolved karma, muck, and such are laid over the geometries, distorting their expression through the mental and energy levels. We’re not typically pure vehicles for expressing the Divine, joy, and love.
Dorothy Rowe has mentioned, and I’ve also noticed, that some templates can be a little damaged and false archetypes can be added. These are less obvious than unresolved experiences as they’re clear and clean.
Yet if you put an Ikea chair together wrong, it may not support your weight.
For example, we can build a meme of not being good enough at subtle levels. This leads to things like shame, subtle expectations of a negative outcome, or not feeling we deserve a good life. That can interfere with the smooth flow of fulfillment.
Inversely, we can have a meme overestimating our self-importance, leading to entitlement and expectations that others should serve us.
Because these are subtle, they’re more powerful than positive thoughts. Ideas can change the world, but subtle archetypes can change perception and our sense of reality.
