On the chart below, you will see a number of colored rings around the transparent sphere that represents your I AM Presence.
These rings represent the attainment you have gathered through your journey in the material world, the mastery you have attained on the seven spiritual rays. This mastery is a product of your positive learning experiences—and take note that even what seems like a mistake can be turned into a positive learning experience. Whatever you do here below, your I AM Presence can learn from it and incorporate the lesson in your causal body.
Thus, it is wise to look at life as a scientific experiment and understand the ideal relationship between your Presence and the Conscious You. The Conscious You does indeed have free will, and it makes choices based on its perception in the material world. Thus, as long as it identifies itself with the outer self, the Conscious You can only make decisions based on the perception filter that defines this self—and through which it sees everything.
This means not only that the Conscious You makes decisions based on its perception, but also that it evaluates the outcome of those decisions based on its perception filter. Thus, you judge yourself based on the same perception filter that caused you to make a certain decision. This is what Jesus called “judging after appearances.”
In contrast, your Presence does NOT see the world through your perception filter. It sees through the crystal clarity of the mind of Christ, and it does NOT judge you as you judge yourself (or as other people judge you). This is why Jesus told us that unless we become as little children, we cannot enter the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is a metaphor for a state of consciousness, in which the Conscious You sees itself as an extension of the Presence.
This means you are no longer judging yourself through the perception filter of the outer self; you are seeing your choices and their consequences as your Presence sees them. And this is the ONLY way to transcend the crippling guilt we have all been exposed to and which tends to paralyze us.
The Bible refers to the causal body in these sayings:
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew, Chapter 6)
Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. (Mark 10:21)
Your causal body can be seen as your cosmic bank account that you can draw on for your spiritual growth and for the fulfillment of your purpose for coming to Earth. Once the Conscious You sheds the outer self and the perception filter, your I WILL BE Presence can express itself freely through you, and that means the attainment in your causal body will now be expressed through you in full measure.
