The human mind is capable of fantastic feats. The self can however also become very lost in the intricacy of though energy output. We are told that there is a human path that each must find and follow. Furthermore we are education (conformed) through family and society to adhere to this understanding of life. We are shown through example that a path exists for each of us. This assumption is based on our minds imagination. It is a construction of our conditioned behavior and ego. Both of these two areas of our existence demand the acceptance of a reality that does not exist. Life contains nothing and everything. Our human form provides the content. We must only release ourselves and experience it. Then we will continue to reawaken to the truth and wisdom that is there to be experienced.
It is essential for our species to awaken to the potentials within this statement. We determine the content of our existence though our awareness. It is equally our choice to determine what we do with ourselves. We have naively given this choice to a deity, or deities, science and or religion. Science has its own specific definitions and interpretations of life. Science is no better or worse than religion it has gladly chosen to explain who you are through scientific variables.
We will never know who we are by using scientific devices or religious deities to explain the unexplainable. The question (who am I) is irrelevant. Life is absolute thus we are absolute. What we however do with this unexplainable dimension called life is our choice. We may discover that what we are is true peace. This will occur when we stop presuming that the dimension of life must be filled with religion, science or any other human content.
Mind or Consciousness?
The human mind in itself does not equal consciousness. Rather it would seem that consciousness is used by it. This allows the mind to expand and create illusions. Our species level of self-consciousness is a gift for the mind. The mind has forgotten this fact. The human mind manipulation of our consciousness is not actually productive for our species development. The creations of the mind are also not necessarily creations of consciousness. The mind creations are often the exact contrary. The developed human mind endorsed the likelihood of species self-conscious awakening.
The actual awakening of human consciousness coincided with the level of our mind development. The time period when humans reached a higher level of self-awareness would be very difficult to determine. We definitely had a species oriented level of awareness throughout our evolution. Then came a period of rapid awaken and development of our consciousness. It was during and unto this period of rapid awakening that we experienced life more intensely and questioned it in a less demanding manner.
The mind; with all its facilities often constricted the growth of our awakened consciousness. It has done so since the dawning of human consciousness. The mind and its demanding nature eventually regained domination of our species development. The brain has taken control of our form consciousness, thus inhibiting a true unity with the universal intelligence. The human mind has manipulated our species. We have forgotten how to do the one thing that would normally be the most natural and simplest. We have forgotten how to simply be.
Best wishes to everyone
