At Home in Consciousness

At Home in Consciousness

You and I may seem to live primarily in the physical world, yet our awareness began in pure consciousness, and as we traveled into the life layer by layer through different dimensions, each one gave us a new sense of self. We possess an entire self system.

The rishis studied this system and came to various conclusions.

  • Pure consciousness is always present in everything, no matter what world it occupies or form it takes.
  • The physical world has the least amount of pure consciousness because it is dominated by physical things and the illusion of separateness.
  • The closer you get to pure consciousness, the more powerful it becomes.
  • Changing one’s consciousness on subtle levels brings change to all the divisions of consciousness at once.

If we follow these principles, we can gain the same mastery enjoyed by the sages, or at least a fair share of it. Here are some tips for changing reality through consciousness:

The physical body: Nourish and respect your body. Appreciate its incredible inner intelligence.

The vital body: Go out into nature and sink into the feeling that this is your home.

The mental body: Develop positive uses of the mind. Find every opportunity to welcome signals from your higher self.

The ego body: Find a vision; go on a quest. Fit yourself into the larger pattern of growth. Seek ways to evolve personally.

The body of bliss: Develop your own practice for transcending and finding bliss. Experience your own being as a reason to be here.

... guess kids do this best,... as -> little kids can imagine whatever it is they need: such as when a kid is without sufficient 'material toys' they conjure up what they need and go far beyond what the 'real toy' is capable of doing. I extend this to pets and other experiences as well. I felt rather helpless as a young girl, and I would image a special pet coming to my rescue and running by my side through those times when I felt especially alone. It was a magnificent horse! Now I have learned as an adult that the symbol of a horse is a source of strength. So, my horse provided what I needed - my strength! This horse was around for nearly four years. I'm sure that whatever else I needed, this 'home of consciousness' delivered what I needed to help me grow up. Now, the greater reality still provides - all I need to do is be open, listen, and live in the now. It's always best to have faith in one's own self. The Divine is within~ Thank you, Deepak for this forum of sharing!

Thank you Deepak Chopra for opening the dimension of consciousness on a daily basis. Helping us to realize that we are spiritual beings and we need spiritual food to sustain us, too.
