Believe it or not, Consciousness or lack of It, determines your experience, so, following on from podcast #4 on the subject, let’s explore Consciousness a bit more.
The trouble is, we don’t understand the meaning of Consciousness at all. And because Consciousness is our Self, we don’t understand our Self. Our lack of understanding is evident in the belief that we are body or “in” a body. But think about it…you can’t believe and act without consciousness! Your Mind and Body are instruments of Consciousness. They are for your use! The body and mind (which is often mistaken for the brain) do not control you. It’s the other way around. You are always the director. When it looks as though your body unexpectedly falls ill or has an accident, you have directed it (through your mind) with your fear of not being in control.
Consciousness is Spirit, Love, Intelligence and Power; It Is your Good. The Mind and Body would follow along if we were Conscious of this, because Mind and Body are Consciousness in different forms much like ice and steam are different forms of water. Therefore, Consciousness, Mind and Body should not be separated from one another. Consciousness (Spirit), Mind and Body are One. But it is important to remember, in addition to this, that Consciousness comes first in the Order, then Mind, then Body.
Now, when we lack Consciousness of this Order, we switch the order… we think consciousness emanates from the body. Conventional thought supposes that the activity of the brain produces consciousness. This does not make it true, but because we think it is true, our consciousness is limited down. How? If consciousness, mind and body are one…in that order…then the reversal of the order in our mind (to body first followed by mind, and finally consciousness) creates an out-of-order experience that lacks Consciousness of its own Truth. The result is that the deluded thinker must feel out of control in a world that, unbeknownst to it, is reflecting its own delusional consciousness back to its self as destruction, negativity, chaos and suffering.
What do we do about it?
Make the correction in your mind. Acknowledge the Truth. The Truth is that You are Infinite Spiritual Consciousness. You are Love, Intelligence and Power. You are your own Good. When you Know You are not limited to a body, but limitless in your Consciousness that you are Consciousness sensed as Body, you set the order straight in your mind and, as a consequence, the correct Order is directed to flow. Love, Intelligence and Power is then Revealed As your bodily experience of Good.
