Star Wars and the force are known worldwide. The force is another name for energy. We are this energy. All life produces this energy. We do not need to go into lengthy political, scientific or religious debates about what this energy represents; nor do we need to know where it originated. It is here. We are the “living” example of it.
It was created and is nurtured from life; life forms to be exact, in countless shapes and sizes. The brain as well as the body could not survive without this life energy. Consciousness being a product of life would also not survive without it. The brain (mind) and consciousness are engulfed in this life energy field. The brain has sadly become a type of portal for consciousness. Although consciousness is constant it can be and is manipulated and restricted by the mind.
Life energy is a field of flowing mind and consciousness input. The dimension fluctuates greatly depending on the intensity of input from either mind, consciousness or both. This may be why a state of conscious awareness is so essential in our existence activities. A dominating output of brain (mind) thoughts and emotions are more likely to cause an imbalance in the field of life energy. The mind (thoughts) is manipulative. This can cause the universal consciousness vibration; that has developed since life began, to be blanketed over by the static that is generated by thoughts and emotions. Lest we not forget that the ego is also intertwined in almost every thought and emotional interaction and response.
This conscious awareness of life is perhaps the rightful guardian of our form existence. Being reflectively conscious of consciousness may allow life energy to flow in a nature manner. The brain would still be a substantial partner in our experiences. It would however not be the ringleader of our activities and responses. Thoughts and emotions; and yes even the ego, would still contribute to our form existence. There would however hopefully no longer be dualism between consciousness and the mind. This could decrease the feeling of dislocation between mind, body and consciousness. The three swim in the void of life energy. Life energy is the common denominator in our existence.
Am I being nit-picky by referring to this given dimension as a “life” dimension instead of a field of universal consciousness? This is what I would like to ask you? What do you feel came first: consciousness or life? The answer will greatly reflect how we view this dimension of nothingness and everything. The flow of mind energy or consciousness output energy is however significant in replenishing this vast dimension.
The link below considers life force and energy produced by the body. This is not exactly what we are referring to above; but it has some interesting insight.
