Definition of consciousness2 continues.
How can inducing consciousness lead to your enlightenment? What exactly does this mean. Lets take a look at what the words mean according to the dictionary.
A: to move by persuasion or influence
B: to call forth or bring about by influence or stimulation
C: effect, cause
Consciousness: consciousness, in psychology, a term commonly used to indicate a state of awareness of self and environment. In Freudian psychology, conscious behavior largely includes cognitive processes of the ego, such as thinking, perception, and planning, as well as some aspects of the superego, such as moral conscience.
Some psychologists deny the distinction between conscious and unconscious behavior; others use the term consciousness to indicate all the activities of an individual that constitute the personality. In recent years, neuropsychologists have begun to investigate the links between consciousness and memory, as well as altered states of consciousness such as the dream state.
Or simply put, The perception of existence.
Now that we know what the words mean, lets take a look at how we can put this to work in our life.
When we can get to the point were our consciousness and God meet we will know what enlightenment is.
Enlightenment removes all material ties and binds us together with spiritual knowledge, the leadership of the Christ, which is impersonal and universal love. This relationship is the free state of spirituality, the only restraint is thought. Many older scholars who had limited thinking and were able to influence race mind and are one of the reasons why we lack the capability to heal ourselves or others. But this wrong thinking was here way before we were born.
THE hand of eternal progress is brushing the cobwebs from the corridors of time and is again revealing to the human race the mysteries of being. As there is "nothing new under the sun," the searchlight of Truth is bringing to light only what has been known to the few in all generations. The time has now come when the few must become the many. The whole world, from the least to the greatest, must know the Truth, so that man may understand the great laws that govern his life. He must learn to control his own destiny, to heal his own body and bring happiness to his own soul. Ignorance must vanish and understanding must be ushered in. Man is no longer to be governed by anything outside himself. Creeds, doctrines, churches, institutions, organizations, governments are all being changed to give place to the realization of the individual. There is a power in and through all that is working this great transformation. All that will not measure up to the standard must fall by its own weight; all that is in line with the Truth must still prosper. The time is at hand; we are in the greatest age of all history; we are in the age of the unifying of all people and all things into the "Ever Present One." "The temple not made with hands" is now being silently builded by the emancipated souls of this planet.
This little book is an attempt to explain what each soul must discover for himself, that he stands in the midst of an eternal creative power which presses itself around his own thought, and casts back to him glorified all that he thinks. If it awakens within the consciousness of one single individual the realization that the mind of the Universe (which is the only mind that there is) is his own mind; that the creative power of this mind is his also; that the manifestation of this mind is his own individuality; that the love and power and peace of this mind is within himself, it will not be written in vain. May it then do much in simplifying and bringing to light some of the deeper mysteries and meanings of life.
ERNEST SHURTLEFF HOLMES, Creative Mind
October 1, 1918.
When Socrates, the father of metaphysics was able to show us how inducing consciousness could change our life's, other great thinkers were inspired and spiritual thinking started to evolve. Now we know that we can never loose the truth of God, after it has become a part of our own being. Once we understand the God truth, and once it really becomes a part of us, it cannot be lost, and if the whole world said that we were wrong, now our own demonstration of it would be the proof.
How do we begin Inducing Consciousness?
How do we begin to live this demonstration of truth?
By dwelling in the secret place of the most high, dwelling in the consciousness of God as a infinite power as the truth Itself. We can accept the truth that our body is the temple of the living God, we no longer have to fear what will come to us. This means, literally, that we are setting God up as the one Presence and the one Power and the All Power and the only Power, that we are acknowledging, nothing less. This is what inducing consciousness is all about.
With all your heart, love God and have no other Gods before you. Acknowledge only the one Presence. All that is true of God, is true of individual beings, this means you and everyone else. This being, this God, this miraculous presents is every person.
Whatever there choice of religion or whatever there race, we shall never be spiritual healers until every call for help brings out in us a sense of love. This is a sense of love that comes not as love for a person, but love of God. All that can ever be accepted in my consciousness, is God, and the Christ of God, which is God appearing as the individual, whether that appearance comes as a person, place or thing.
Reading books and the studying of scripture, or metaphysics or your choice of worship is the first step to opening our consciousness to the inflow of spiritual truth. Second is our association with those who are on the path, and especially with those who have gone even one step further than we have. In and of themselves, they are Spirit, and they will lead us back to the kingdom of God within our own being. They keep reminding us of our true identity, leading us back from the misconception of the world which would try to pull us down.
We all need help with inducing consciousness.
“We are today beginning to see work by very reputable scientists that says the universe is created by our observations. It is not a coincidence; we are actively involved in physically shaping the world that we experience.”
