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.

NIGHT-BLOOMING FLOWERS

for Matt RennerMy neighbors Russ and Julie called excitedly the other night.“Get over here, quick!” they said, “and bring a flashlight.” I went, flashlight in hand, without asking questions.In their driveway, a non-descript plant in a flowerpot had suddenly burst forth with great white blossoms. I could smell the voluptuous fragrance before I even got there, homing in on the perfume along with several other neighbors, as if we were its pollinators. Russ said he had once simply stuck a…See More

Spin Doctors

Turning and turning in the widening gyre, The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensitySurely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand. The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi Troubles my…See More

TAKING THE LONG VIEW

I’m reading a riveting book about catastrophes and ancient civilizations by the geologist Robert Schoch who I met recently and liked; he is my kind of renegade. He writes,“If that massive asteroid hadn’t slammed into Chicxulub 65 million years ago, dinosaurs might still be the largest land animals, mammals would be restricted to a few small rodents and insectivores that dared forage at night, and we humans would never have arisen.”That certainly slammed me into a new perspective on our current…See More

THE LAMED VOV

Written in the Talmud it says that as long as there are at least 36 righteous people in the world, God will not bring destruction to the rest of us in a fit of well-provoked temper.Every once in a while, I meet one of these utterly good people, invariably clothed in ordinary garb, quietly going about his or her everyday business.It is also written in the Talmud that these righteous, or ‘just’ ones do not necessarily know this about themselves, but the rest of us recognize – and sometimes resent…See More

UNPREDICTABLE MAGIC

It doesn’t take much to see that we are living in a time of serious economic instability. Charles Eisenstein, one of our brightest futurists says that the crisis is a global process centuries in the making, and is in its final stages of unfoldment. He says, “It arises from the very nature of money and property in the world today, and it will persist and continue to intensify until money itself is transformed…We cannot convert much more of the earth into money, or much more of our health into…See More
