When I talk of realising Christ Consciousness I mean I experienced an awakened state. I saw the world through new eyes and glimpsed the unity of all things. With absolute certainty, I knew my role within the Cosmic scheme. I imagined the sparkling stars as neurotransmitters ablaze with intelligence in the vastness of space; the Universal Mind… the Mind of God
It all made sense… every particle, every molecule, every cell, radiates brilliance, converging and combining to form ingeniously individual and innovative expressions of creativity: the tree, the butterfly, the human, the planet, the star.
Stripping away layer upon layer of conditioned thinking, atheistic preconceptions and religious doctrines I reasoned, if one defines God as Everything then Everything becomes a confirmation of the reality of God *
All that is within the Cosmos is inseparably bound up with the Cosmos. We are created and evolve from the stuff of the Cosmos, our physicality, our spirituality. We are conscious beings, and as such, our minds are manifestations of the Universe. Equally the Universe is a manifestation of our minds. In other words we are living proof that the Universe itself is conscious.
The dewdrop is contained within the world,
The world is contained within the dewdrop.
* The definition and description of God as ‘He’-‘Him’-‘Lord’ pertains more to the vested interests of male-dominated religious ideology than to the true nature of divinity. Whether or not we choose to use the word God to describe the consciousness of the Cosmos is unimportant, after all God is not the word, God is a word.
