Indefinable Consciousness? by Nicolya Christi

Indefinable Consciousness? by Nicolya Christi
I'd like to share some thoughts on consciousness and how it might be defined. In my contemplations, I came to realise the infinite nebulousness of consciousness.. Here I share some thoughts - and welcome yours..
What is consciousness and how do we define it?
 
The exploration of just what consciousness is dates back millennia.The question of what consciousness is has been explored by indigenous peoples, ancient cultures, civilisations and every ancient Mystery School in human history. In modern times, science and religion have also been preoccupied with this existential question. Yet, a definitive universal definition of what consciousness is still does not exist. A rational explanation of consciousness is that it is a function of knowing, a continuous process of thought and awareness. It seems that a division of thought exists between cognitive science, which views consciousness as a neurological phenomenon contained within the brain, and spirituality, which suggests consciousness as being a multi-dimensional phenomenon which exists both within and beyond the individual.
 
It is said that to some degree consciousness is influenced by our social environment and conditioning, which can help us to awaken and evolve. Consciousness can also be described as an experience of gnosis – a deep and certain inner-knowing that arises from the depths of our Being. The conscious mind is an aspect of consciousness but not consciousness itself. However, inner and outer experience shape, influence and evolve an individual's consciousness.
An expanded view of consciousness acknowledges the presence of the ‘I’ within, which experiences multi-dimensionally. Consciousness includes altered states, paranormal occurrences, out of body experiences, heightened states of awareness created by meditation, prayer and psychotropic substances, channeling, visions and ESP, (extra sensory perception). Indeed the whole range of esoteric, metaphysical and spiritual experience can awaken, raise and expand consciousness. Rational thought is incapable of defining consciousness and even our basic capacity of perception makes the definition of consciousness elusive. Consciousness is a paradox, it is both the expression of many levels of existence, of being, yet at the same time, it is all one expression.
 
Following unending explorations and experiments in the quest to define consciousness, quantum physicists have scientifically proven that consciousness can and does affect matter existing beyond the boundaries of the physical body. H.W. Percival, author of ‘Thinking and Destiny’ (1946), wrote of his own experiences when in an altered state of consciousness. Percival perceived himself to be conscious on another level of consciousness known as the 'Buddhic Plane'. It was whilst in this heightened state of consciousness that the book was "dictated" to him. Percival went on to explain: “Consciousness is the ultimate, the final Reality. Consciousness is that by the presence of which all things are conscious. Mystery of all mysteries, it is beyond comprehension. Without it nothing can be conscious; no one could think; no Being, no entity, no force, no unit, could perform any function. Yet Consciousness itself performs no function: it does not act in any way; it is a presence, everywhere.  Although there are countless degrees of being conscious, there are no degrees of Consciousness.  Consciousness has no properties, no qualities, no attributes; it does no possess; it cannot be possessed. Consciousness never began; it cannot cease to be.”
 
Consciousness transcends all space and time. Consciousness is the source of our Being - it is All of Existence, All That Is, Source, God, Creator, Divinity. It is the true domain of our Individual, Collective, Galactic and Universes beyond Universes Spiritual Home, the Dimensions from which we originate, and to which we shall Return. In Quantum Field Theory consciousness denotes the Zero-Point field which contains fleeting electromagnetic waves and particles that pop into and out of existence. Quantum scientists continue to research and make groundbreaking discoveries about the correlation between the consciousness of humanity and its impact on, what they term, the Zero Point Field. Writer, Thomas Merton, shared; “If I penetrate to the depths of my own existence, to this indefinable AM that is myself in it’s deepest roots, then through this deep center I pass into the infinite I AM, which is the very name of the Almighty."
 
We are all sparks of Divine Consciousness. We all hold a deep gnosis that we are part of something vast and unfathomable, so infinitely inexpressible and boundlessly indefinable, which may be termed as Creator, God, Source, or Divine Consciousness. However we name it, our gnosis reveals to us how we are Consciousness and how Consciousness can be best defined as Existence. We are in the time of the Great Awakening – the Awakening of Consciousness - Divine Consciousness - of God Consciousness. We are awakening to the reality of our own Divinity, and to the Divine. Consciousness permeates every atom, every molecule and every cell of every Being and every Energy beyond our Universe. All That Is, the AM and the I AM are immersed in the infinity and boundlessness of Divine Consciousness.

Fish out of Water

Fish out of Water... how long you've stalked the wall of words in stony silence. A physical graffiti, of scribbled etching from a bygone age. By the River ferry, where Pilgrims crossed, then paused to contemplate. To bathe their eyes, refresh the soul where sacred spring waters bubble clear to the surface. And the children run…See More
