Consciousness and your Good is a matter of Order.

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.

Consciousness Speaks Episode 2 – Who are You?

This episode is about connecting to your Spiritual Self and discerning the difference between that Spiritual Self, I, and the one you think is you, little i.

Why the intellect is not Intelligent.

Humans often confuse the intellect with intelligence.

The “intellect” is the faculty of thinking; believing, analysing, conceptualizing and understanding. Although important, it is limited to what is already existing. we sense and then we think.

By contrast, “Intelligence” is the capacity for thinking; an expansion that extends into Infinity. Intelligence is “Creative” and comes prior to sensing because it produces what we sense and then think about with our intellect. Watch your intellect question this, reasoning that there is no proof.

But the intellect can’t prove Cause from the position of the result. Therefore, the intellect cannot be Intelligent.

Luckily You are not the intellect.

You are Intelligence Itself!

A Flower is evidence of an Intelligence and Love we dare not try to understand lest It annihilate us.

How to Recognise a True Spiritual Teaching.

What’s wrong with this picture? Not the lemons…that’s a picture of abundance. This…A person who claims to have become “Enlightened” ending up poor, lonely, sick, old or dead, or all of the above.

Recently i read an article written by such a person from their hospital bed. It brought to mind something a Syrian mystic wrote, “The way that provides not for the wayfarer, is no way to fare upon”. The quote spoke to me… if the Spiritual teaching we are following is not Spiritually Providing for our daily needs, if We are not being Spiritually Fed, Supported, Healed, Forgiven, Comforted and Protected, then one of two things is happening;

  1. The teaching is incomplete or false. That is, it’s not really Spiritual or
  2. The teaching is Complete but our understanding is incomplete.

Perhaps the first question we need to ask is, “What does it mean to be Spiritual Provided?”

To help us with the answer we need only to look up from “our” limited life and out the window. When we do, we notice that there is an Intelligence and Love “Providing” for every other living thing. Birds, insects and native animals have their needs met without apparent struggle or strife (until they come within range of humans). Forces such as gravity, weather, seasons and tides work cooperatively with the elements, plants and creatures of the earth and sea in a vast and generous eco-system we call Nature. In other words, every form of Life, from the smallest ant to the largest whale is Provided for, Spiritually. That is, they don’t decide to do anything separate from what their inner instincts dictate. They just go with the “flow” and that flow is Infinitely Loving and Intelligent.

However, when we look at man (not gender-specific), he seems to have been left out of the picture. Or was he?

What really happened was that man took himself out of the picture by thinking he could provide for himself. Suddenly he separated himself from the Infinite Flow of his own inner Being and experienced limitation: Limited health, limited supply, limited love, limited happiness, limited safety etc etc etc. Ignorance of this fact makes us look outside for remedies and solutions. Isn’t this a ridiculous scenario?

Now…back to the quote..”The way that provides not for the wayfarer, is no way to fare upon”. Surely then, a True Spiritual teaching will help its followers become Consciously Receptive to our very own built-in Infinitely Intelligent and Loving “Provider” (which Is our own Consciousness). This can only be done through correct and sustained meditation, because the thinking human mind has a persistent habit of judging, desiring and fearing which separates it from its own Good. Meditation quiets the thinking mind and allows “us” to become transparencies for the Infinite Intelligence and Love of the Universe to do Its thing. Eventually, We Realize that the One Infinite Intelligence and Love Is Us, Individualized (not personalized). It is already Providing, Sustaining and Nurturing, Infinitely and Eternally. “Our” role is to drop the personal sense of “us”, “me”, “we”, “i” (the one that judges, desires and fears), and Realize We are already Spiritually Provided for. That Realization translates into Harmonious conditions in our practical daily lives.

It’s worth noting that Jesus also said, “By their fruits you shall know them” – Matthew 7:16. So…is your Spiritual teaching fruitless?
