I know this topic is not for very light readers but I have faith in those who read my blog they will have the patience to read till the end to know what I am talking about.
Ever since I have become aware of the good inside me and am working on it. I got confused with this word, read “n” number of books , listen to wisdom filled people , ask questions or get answers one thing was common all spoke or said about something called “conciousness” like “lift your conciousness” or “free or conciousness” etc etc . Now as per my knowledge consciousness was to be aware of something even a dictionary would give you the same meaning i.e to be aware of something or someone example “I am conscious about him looking at me ” , how could you just lift that up or free it from something??? It took me many years to honestly simplify it thus sharing it with you.
Consciousness in a very regular perspective would mean nothing, but on the spiritual context would have multi fold meanings. Yes even there it would mean to be aware of something or someone but spiritually you’d understand it only when you get the answers to questions of “who someone?”.
To answer this we need a little introspection into our thinking or how we create thoughts.
Please take a look at the above picture. Though it is self explanatory I would still elaborate it a bit.
The above diagram shows how a consciousness is created. And it is interesting to know that every second of the day we are all creating and growing in our consciousness because our mind from the time we were born has been only adding information and depositing them somewhere deep down so every second of the day we are only adding more to our consciousness. Simply view a library in which books of latest releases and prime importance/demand are kept in the front row while the one’s least used are always stored at the end or deep somewhere. Just that our mind is much sharper than any librarian if you really want to retrieve a file you can given the required time and self belief.
a) Going by that we have a Consciousness at this very second (the next second we can have a different consciousness) which inspires us to look at a certain way at something. Step 1 NEW CONSCIOUSNESS that creates thoughts inside us.
b) Next comes a sense of JUDGEMENT to know if the thought or idea or view created is right or wrong. Who decides right or wrong ? again the same consciousness based on past experiences , beliefs, knowledge etc.
c) Thus comes the next part i.e decision is taken either ACCEPTED OR REJECTED by us.
d) Once ACCEPTED as truth if will be brought into action sooner or later. Example- you created a thought XYZ is a liar – accepted as truth by your experience on something – stored in mind will be used as soon as you interact with XYZ later.
e) If REJECTED as false. It becomes just another mundane information until and unless in some next moment you get some added information about the same thing to reverse your decision. Example – you hear gossip about somebody your mind rejects based on your experience until and unless some other time you get some added information and then you can say “oh I knew about it.”
f) On the contrary if brought into action and repeated action it becomes your HABIT/BELIEF SYSTEM. Lets say once you get up late in the morning and justify that and then do it several times more, it becomes your habit. This creates an experience which interferes with experiences with others or simply involves others consciousness too.
g) Once a new experience is added , it is simply that which we call as “DESTINY”. This Destiny becomes another added information to your EXTERNAL INFORMATION. Thus repeating the same loop after being absorbed by our senses again.
Now to prove this you can do an added experiment, which I have been successful with (like I said research is important). In this you will have to intentionally inhibit a consciousness into yourself. After which I will ask you to just take a look at who so ever is around you (person) and quickly catch your 1st thought that arises about that person. In this experiment I’d like to prove that the consciousness that you intentionally feed into your mind has a direct relation to the thoughts that is created about different things. Which means you are more aware about the inhibited consciousness. So ready? Lets do it.
1. For 5 minutes think about colours varied colors , deep and down try feel it. Remember every information you know about it and see them vividly in your mind try be absorbed in it. Then Relax again.
2. Now slowly see any person around you.
3. Remember the first information or thought that hits your mind and note that.
You can try the 5 minutes thinking about different things like religion hindu , muslim , sikh , christian etc or you can try think about good or bad virtues etc.
-----Read this after experiment----
The first thing has to be something related to what you deeply thought about in those 5 minutes. Like you thought about colors you would end up thinking red lips, black hair, blue dress etc just vaguely related to colors. The same goes for consciousness that adds with religions or good and bad virtues etc.
The idea is to show that such deep thoughts come on the floor of mind when you pay attention to them and they sit on your mind while you are interacting with other people. This eventually travels to other people and they presume you accordingly thus creating your destiny with those people.
In fact you can create personality even for non living things depending on your consciousness. Example cars , coins, mountains, rivers etc that is why you’d find some languages referring mountain as male, rivers as females and so on because at that time when those language were created their consciousness created a difference between man and woman thus their work showed its reflection. Interesting isn't it ?
So this answers our first question aware of "who someone"?? aware of our own thoughts or our mind. But how to be aware of something we cannot even see ? Not easy i agree so there is an alternate route. Since it is a loop we can always go a step back and see what else can be changed here it is the external information we feed it.
World wide web has greatly influenced our lives we cannot deny it but we all know that all information available in it is not useful, similarly everything we hear , see or even feel might not be true so absorbing information and good information per say becomes vital. This is the only way to start breaking the chain that creates your Destiny. It definitely does not happen in a day but a gradual look at information from various sources would slowly give you a feeling of what is good and not so good for you. Every time you choose something as truth it is verified and brought into action. So choosing and filtering information lifts your consciousness.
Everything we are today this very scene that you are seeing and feeling is the result of deep rooted thoughts created in your consciousness. You choose what to feel the very next moment. Thus creating your Consciousness.
Finally your Consciousness is nothing more than what you choose to be. And that should always look up , up and up.adios Friends :)
