The progression of spirituality directly corresponds to subjecting the third dimension. Common society resides at a lower level of consciousness and perceives the third dimension as objective and absolute in contrast to a subjective perception. Earthly materialism predominates inner desire among the non-spiritual personality including the human body itself. The lower level of consciousness creates ignorance of non-duality. Consequently, ignorance retains the individual within the duality of the third dimension and within rebirth cycle.
Objective (as in “objective”) adj. : belonging to immediate experience of actual things or events; “concrete benefits”; “a concrete example”; “there is no objective evidence of anything of the kind”
Subjective (as in “subjective”) adj. : taking place within the mind and modified by individual bias; “a subjective judgment”
Objectifying materialism creates slavery upon the senses that includes attachment, selfishness, greed, and negative emotions that create grief that leads to karmic bonds. The ego attaches onto objects and the duality of the earth. Thus, the spiritual seeker to attain the ultimate goal of spirituality the individual will progress by subjecting the elements of the darkness within the world, simultaneously, pursuing spiritual action and devoting all action to Divine direction.
Attain a Life of Subjection within the Third Dimension?
Considering that the non-spiritual majority reside at a lower level of consciousness the spiritual quester must earnestly seek the truth; additionally, the individual must face the challenge to attain an accurate knowledge of the truth and possibly a higher level of consciousness. Religious attachment or dogma prevents proper spiritual progression; religion dwells within idolatry. As the individual comprehends our formless inner spirit, and the ego’s axioms are content of objective non-sense, then a person will ascertain how to subject this third dimension.
Non-attachment relates to subjecting this world of formation. The state of pure consciousness along with the oneness with the spirit of the Divine is alien to the formation and materialism of the world. Only few have attained pure consciousness compared to the billions of the majority; progressing toward a high level of oneness with the spirit of the Divine and a higher level of consciousness pertains to the spiritual seeker.
Only few people are able to attain subjecting the third dimension of formation.
Manifesting a non-interest concerning worldly pursuits, the spiritual seeker will avoid: attitudes of consumption, revelries, religion, materialism, love of money, idolatry, lust for food, selfishness, greed, arrogance, and so forth.
As the spiritual seeker experiences the subjective formless inner spirit and progresses to focus upon spirituality, the student will embrace the primordial substrate that illuminates the faculty of awareness that transforms the meditative mind of the formless spirit through Divine direction; thus, the view the mind itself as subjective and impersonal. Perceiving the mind and ego as impersonal assists the process in subjecting this third dimension. Our formless inner spirit is eternal.
Scriptural References related to Subjecting the Third Dimension:
The Bhagavad Gita chapter 13:10,11; paraphrased from two different translations.
“An unwavering devotion to the Divine. Center all thought on Divinity. Turn your back on social life and the commotion of the crowds. Have an intense love for solitude, and distaste for involvement in worldly affairs. Persistence in knowing the inner spirit (Self) and awareness in the goal of Knowing – this is called true knowledge; what differs from it is ignorance”.
Jesus, when he walked the earth, continually subjected this world. John 16:33; John writes according the translation of the KJV that “Jesus has overcome the world”. The Greek word “nikao” they translate into “overcome” defines as “to subdue”. The translator’s most likely get confused, not knowing what John meant. What John wrote was that Jesus subdued the world, thus he made this world subjective to his true source and did not get involved in worldly pursuits. Matthew and Luke write that Jesus always looked for places of solitude.
The Dhammapada teaches that The Buddha said at chapter 13:4
“Perceive the world as a bubble. Perceive this world as a mirage. If you see the world in this way, you render the Lord of Death powerless. The Buddha taught subjecting this objective world.
Jesus, Krishna, and The Buddha all taught subjecting this objective world and non-attachment. Each enlightened individual taught within their culture and tailored according to the belief system of the era. Christianity fails to comprehend the root context of the teachings of the Greek Scriptures.
Spiritual progression into a higher level of consciousness requires surrendering and subjecting the formation and materialism of the third dimension. Religion befriends the world and proves as an object of idolatry. To attain the ultimate goal in spirituality, the person must create a goal of subjecting this objective world, and all things that are in the world, and everything that relates to the darkness of the third dimension.

Great post; lots of good thoughts here.
The good thing is that this world is all already over, just as it never was. To say the world is under the power of the wickedness does not help me. If I truly subject this world to my mind as the cause of it, including my own self-image and body, then the devil or what you call the wicked ones, can only be an idea of my mind, projected outside of me. Yet the power is still in my mind, whether I am aware of it or not. Thank God. Truly a new idea to accept and be happy. All I have to do is to accept it and give it away, practice it in every circumstance, without defending myself against what seems to be attacking me, for it can only be my thoughts.
Thank you for all your teaching.
I kind of know where your coming from, although take a cement brick ( a heavy one) and drop it on your foot. Did it hurt, that is called the present. Now a person can transcend and find the pain subjective, which it is. Although if you broke a toe or bone, I am sure you will go to the doctor. So saying that this world is already over does not make sense.
The wicked, deceiving lower entities have a person right where they want them, if they can get the person to not believe that they exist.
The battle is the darkness against the light.
Well, what battle? Do you think the light fights back? Does light even know of darkness? Isn’t there light everywhere where there is light? Does not the darkness disappear where there is light? So, what battle?
Take the example with the cement brick, what are the assumptions that you have to accept for yourself and who you are, to even make this statement? Who are you in your idea about yourself, to let yourself do this? In other words, what are you trying to prove? Truth certainly does not need such defense. Are you the darkness? Are you pretending to be a thought form, while being all the light there is?
A Course in Miracles is very clear on this. There is no discussion and no doubt. You are not a body, you are free, and still as God created you. Therefore, pain is a wrong perspective. Therefore, you might say, the pain is real, but you do not exist as that self-identity.
The darkness battles through deception and ego-driven behaviors such as, selfishness, greed, arrogance, hate, and so on. The battle for the light is to conquer the bad by doing good, seeking truth to come out of the deception. The darkness battles by harding the heart of people. I am taking about the children of light and darkness, spirit and human.
Of course all things are subjective to our spirit, which is formless. Although our spirit (true self) is stuck in the human cycle. If you don’t believe this and the cement brick did not work. Take your hand and put it flat on a 2×2 and drive a nail (a thick one) through your palm.
So is the blood, and pain, and being stuck there on the 2×2 a part of who you are? Or are you just some place else not experiencing the displeasure? Or did this already happen and what your going through is just some dream?
Of course our true self as spirit is not effected, nor can our spirit be harmed. Although since the spirit is stuck as a human, what we go through, becomes reality.
If you don’t believe this then try the above concept with a 2×2, take a nail an drive it through your palm with a hammer.
The Bhagavad Gita clearly teaches about our true Self. What you are teaching is nothing new. The ego attaches to the identity of the body. Our true source is our formless spirit. The problem is that even when a person transcends the ego; the person will still be in human form.
If you quit eating food, your human self will die, your formless spirit (higher Self) never dies, it will just go into another womb, unless the person came to a higher level of consciousness.
