The Whole of Reality Glows With Life

‘All that is’ differs only in how consciousness, in its infinite nature, is manifested.

Consciousness has always been. There is nowhere we can draw a line and declare everything below is devoid of consciousness whereas everything above has consciousness. There can only be consciousness within the Whole or there can be no consciousness whatsoever. Everything that exists is Consciousness, obtaining its individuality by manifesting in different configurations/forms of dense and subtle energy.

Consciousness gave birth to the mind, not the other way around. All aspects of our conscious  Reality  (even the basic self-organized structures such as molecules) have the capacity to ‘know’ and although we perceive  that these other expressions of consciousness have quite a basic form of intelligence, they still possess a degree of consciousness – they know to self-organize into form. When we look at cells we see that they know how to reproduce and fight off intruders that would harm them. When we look at plants we see that they know to turn towards the sun in order to receive sustaining energy. When we look at birds we see that they know they have to fly south in the winter in order to survive harsh winters.

Consciousness does not have to be comparable to the experience of  human awareness in order for it to exist within other manifestations of energy. All that exists, from the smallest quanta to the most massive galaxy, has a degree of ‘materiality’ as well as ‘interiority’. Mind and matter are not separate distinct realities but rather complementary aspects. When we shift our position of awareness in order to realize this universal truth, we can much more easily understand the ‘big picture’ and experience a true shift in our consciousness. This shift streams into our mind when we see all things as being part of the whole… part of the Supermind of Reality.

With the ability as human beings to be able to experience non-locality through deep meditation and entheogens, one can perceive and experience existence from any position of awareness. Try and experiment on your own to see this fantastical reality become an ingrained realization within your mind. You just might experience a paradigm shift of absolutely epic proportions…

The Emergence of a New Humanity

Reality is a consciousness hologram that includes  an ability for us to move through time to experience the full range of emotions we feel as humans. This vast (even infinite) quantum reality is filled with metaphors to help us understand and bridge the gap between physical reality and the nonphysical subtle reality of consciousness. The rainbow bridge is the ultimate metaphor in shifting our awareness towards a place where we are consciously evolving and becoming intentional evolutionaries. By crossing this bridge, we are able to become self-realized and self-realization is then just one step away from full enlightenment and liberation.

The Whole of Reality Glows With Life - Rainbow BridgeBy finally realizing that we are not what we think we are – this solid body that our basic senses perceive is the real ‘us’ –we can experience self-realization on the highest level where we realize that we are multidimensional consciousness simultaneously experiencing a wider horizon of Reality than we had ever previously thought was possible. This realization transcends all human concepts. As I said in my book The Creation of a Consciousness States, “The purpose of life is to gain experience.”

What else is life but a continuous stream of experiences? Of continuous being and becoming? To borrow another aphorism from my book, “The only constant in existence is change.” 12.21.12 meant many things to many people but overall we can agree upon there being enormous transitional and transformational shifts and changes occurring right now, the end result of which is still too hazy to see clearly. What we can all do to help ensure that the future is a bright one (that fully empowers and liberates humans wherever and whoever they may be) that shifts our minds towards unity and away from all the divisiveness that plagues human society. We are all interconnected… It’s time we start living a life that reflects this reality.
