What is consciousness?
Consciousness is our awareness of "what is", of Universal energy, of Nowness, of God.
It's more than intellectually knowing. It's our deep inner knowing that there is something more and that we are part of this more. There is something more and we are part of it.
This knowing isn’t something that we can be taught. It’s not a mind thing. Instead, it takes hold within us, it is something we are born with, it is something we don’t ever not know.
In the old days, a word for this was faith: having an unshakeable belief in something that can’t be seen.We may not use that term now, but we are practicing faith anyway.
We don’t need intellectual or scientific “proof” to know that our knowing is a true knowing. We see in our own lives, the continued, constant and consistent communication from this indescribable, ineffable MORE that is everything.
God. Universe. One. All. Divine.
All good names, for what we’re trying to express.
And sometimes, just the idea that there is MORE and we are part of it is enough to get us through a rough patch or a dark night.
We hold this deep knowing deep without our innermost hearts, and no amount of convincing will have us known otherwise.
We know this, because we are it.
