Plato’s Recollection

Plato’s Doctrine of Recollection is a core concept of Philosophy because it is the key to innate wisdom, which is the gateway to empowered love.

Plato’s doctrine states that knowledge is a wisdom that is innate, which is not learned but recollected. Knowledge that we recollect is an intuitive knowing, in contrast to knowledge that is learned from physical experience.

Plato argued that whatever we already know, we have knowledge of and if we have no knowledge of something, then how can it be learned?

Plato has a clear distinction between what is someone else’s relatively true opinion and what is one’s own absolute knowledge.

Our personal experience tells us that someone else’s true opinion is based on their relative perspective & experience of physical reality, whereas absolute knowledge is the intuitive wisdom of the Soul.

Plato believed that whatever the physical Self did not know was because of a relative disconnection in their ability to recollect the inherent source of all knowledge that is their Soul.

The Soul is the source of all knowledge that the Individual Self requires on its journey through life. In its disconnection from the Soul, the Self forgets its spiritual origins and starts life from birth with a clean slate & a blank memory.

In its disconnection from its Source, the Individual Self acquires memories based on the true opinions of others. It makes choices that are influenced by the experiences & opinions of others as there is no recollection of any absolute knowledge of the purpose, reason or meaning for one’s life.

In a relatively disconnected state of being, we make choices based on our memories of past experiences that we learned from other people’s true opinions. We act on knowledge, information or intelligence that is given to us by our teachers. Our own opinions are based on a set of personal standards that we adopted from other people’s principles, morals & ethics.

Plato’s doctrines are based on his belief & his opinion that everything that he needs to know, on his personal journey through life, he already has knowledge of at the super-conscious level of the Soul. At the level of conscious physical experience, all the Self is required to do is recollect it.

It is Plato’s doctrine that whatever knowledge is required on a moment to moment basis is always available for his recollection. On his journey through life, he collects the knowledge required in each & every present moment through his connection to his omniscient Soul.

Omniscient means all knowing or having all knowledge of. For Plato, his Soul has all knowledge of his individual, exclusive & unique path through life.

The philosophical question that this presents is whether Plato’s Doctrine is based on innate divine intuitive knowledge of just his true opinion.

History tells us from experience that Individuals who follow a unique & exclusive path, in alignment with their Soul’s higher vision, mission & purpose for life, tend to be remembered as significant Historical Figures.

Philosophy

Philosophy is a perspective.

My perspective of life is my philosophy on life.

Philosophy is not a religion, it is a personal collection of core beliefs.

My core beliefs determine my world view & my philosophy.

My philosophy is my view of love & wisdom.

My beliefs about love & wisdom determine my philosophy.

With wisdom, my love empowers me.

With love, my wisdom enlightens me.

With a love of wisdom & the wisdom of love, I am enabled with life.

In the light of my wisdom emanates the power of my love that inspires my life.

The magnitude of my love empowers the force of my wise authority and enables my potential.

My Philosophy enables my ideal life to be experientially realised.

Empowered Wisdom

Wisdom is always empowered.

It is my connection to my higher authority.

Higher authority is always empowered.

Choosing an authority that is without true power is always unwise.

When connected to my emotional power, I am authorised and my choice is wise.

Connecting to my wisdom empowers me.

Being positively emotionally connected is wise.

It connects my Self to my higher wisdom.

When positively emotionally connected, I am inspired.

My inspired revelations empower me.

Being emotionally disconnected is never wise.

Without feeling my wisdom is less apparent.

Loving my wisdom is my philosophy.

Philosophy is the inspired authorisation of my empowered wisdom.

Allowance & Perception

I do not receive an allowance, I perceive it.

My allowance is not given, it is forgiven.

Whatever is forgiven requires perception.

My perspective of life either allows my perception or blocks my perception.

When my perception is disallowed, I cannot perceive my allowance.

Without perception my allowance is not evident.

Evidence of my allowance requires my perception to bring it into my perspective.

My allowance is always present whether I perceive it to be or not.

Unless I perceive what is forgiven, I cannot accept it as my allowance.

Without a true perspective, I am unable to allow my provision to be present.

 

A Relative Existence

The quality of my life is relative to the quality of my emotional experience.

The quality of my emotional experience is relative to the quality of my thoughts.

The quality of my thoughts is relative to the attainment of my attributes.

The attainment of my attributes is relative to the creativity that is my potential.

My potential to be creative is relative to the magnitude of my emotional power & the force of my mental authority.

The magnitude of my emotional power is relative to the force of my mental authority that is determined by the purity of the frequency of my thought that is relative to the purity of the wavelength of my emotion.

The relative frequency of the authority of my thought is aligned with the relative wavelength of the power of my emotion, which is relative to the ability of my energy vibration.

The quality of my vibrational energy determines the mental thoughts and the emotional experiences that determine the quality of my life that I attract to my Self in the duality of this relative existence.

Therefore, if it feels good for me, it is good for me; and if it feels bad for me, either I change my mind or I don’t give it another thought.

Talking to my Self

Talking to my Self is an acknowledgement that there is more than one aspect of my Self.

There is the me that thinks, the me that talks, and the me that listens.

When the me that listens disagrees with the me that talks, I am in conflict with my Self.

When the me that thinks is out of alignment with the me that talks, I will not hear my Self.

When the me that hears is too busy talking, I disallow new thoughts.

Talking to my Self is my sub-conscious mind telling my conscious self that I am confused.

Listening to my Self allows my distinction between my sub-conscious ego that is lost and my super-conscious entity that I find to be my foundation.

Thinking to my Self is my conscious mind referring to my stored sub-conscious programmes as memories.

Hearing the thoughts of my super-conscious Soul is how I gain the presence of a clear direction for my life.

Be True to Your Self

My Soul is always True to my Self.

My Soul is the image of my True Self.

My Self is the incarnation of my Soul into physical life.

My Soul is incarnate in life as my physical Self having a mental & emotional experience.

In my disconnection from my True Self, I cannot be true to my Self.

This is how I experience the untruth of who I really am.

I make up a personality & a character for who I imagine my Self to be whilst living out this drama of physical existence.

I cannot be true to a self that is just play acting.

I cannot reveal my true Self until I complete the last act of playing my Self in real life.

When the curtain comes down on the part that I have been playing, I can reveal the truth of my Real Self to my Self.
