Alignment is a requirement of Connection and is a component of the LP Connection Framework. Alignment is the extent to which physical reality is "in alignment with" the will and imagination of Highest Self, or God. Alignment may refer to individual alignment, as when, as individuals, we are in alignment with and tuned to our own Highest Self. Alignment may also refer to collective reality, as when our institutions, our planet, and even the entirety of creation is "in alignment" with Consciousness.
Reality is "in alignment" with Consciousness when it is a pure and uncorrupted expression of Consciousness (with a capital "C").
Alignment may refer to the general state of physical reality as a reflection of Consciousness, or it may refer to specific instances/examples of alignment, as for example the alignment of Bodily Ego with Spiritual Ego. In this case, alignment refers to the extent to which the Physical Unit is acting as an “appropriate and responsive” physical unit for Resident Monadic Consciousness. The easiest way to think about this is to think about a car. If you get into a car and you hit the gas, but the car slows down, or if you turn the wheel left, but the car turns right, the car is out of alignment (i.e. unresponsive) to the intent of the driver. It is the same with your physical body. If the RMC that "owns" the Physical Unit wants the Physical Unit to do one thing, but it does another, the body is out of alignment with RMC.
To the extent that the Physical Unit is functioning as an appropriate and responsive vehicle for the resident monadic consciousness (RMC) we may say that the physical unit is in alignment with its RMC. A physical unit that is in alignment with its own RMC perceives, thinks and acts in accordance with the perceptions, thoughts, and desires of its own RMC (Sosteric, SA1). A physical unit which, because of (for example) Toxic Socialization and Indoctrination, thinks and acts in ways that are against the nature and/or wishes of its RMC, or a physical unit that is unresponsive to the wishes of its RMC, may be said to be out of alignment.
Alignment is a requirement of Connection (see Connection Framework) of the physical unit. A physical unit that is out of alignment may have difficulty with the process of awakening and activation (for more, see LPWKB3). Huxley notes "But the nature of this one Reality is such that it cannot be directly and immediately apprehended except by those who have chosen to fulfil certain conditions, making themselves loving, pure in heart, and poor in spirit. Why should this be so? We do not know." (Huxley, 2018: Perennial Philosophy)
Alignment of the physical unit is a key developmental task. Alignment is one of the body's Seven Essential Needs. When not attained in childhood, alignment can be attained in adulthood by encouraging the physical unit with an Alignment Rule Set. The LP ARS encourages Right Thought, Right Action, and Right Environment.
Alignment of the physical unit with Consciousness/God is a common theme in traditional spirituality, though the expression of it is often overcomplicated, confused, or distorted (for more, see the discussion page.
Alignment is a significant concern of knowledgeable kundalini practitioners. As GM CKS notes, "When the Kundalini is awakened, the positive and negative qualities of the person will be magnified to a very high degree. Kundalini energy is like fertilizer. Whatever seeds are in the ground will be stimulated to grow. So whatever ancient seeds a person possesses, whether good or bad, will be magnified. This is why a person going into the spiritual path experiences intense inner battles. Therefore, it is important to practice inner purification." (Sui, 2016).
