Omniscience is a very big subject. (laughs) It is all knowing. But not about knowing all things. It is about knowing all knowing. Total knowingness.
This can be very hard for the mind to grasp. The mind is about knowing things – ideas, concepts, facts. Much deeper than that is knowingness, the knowledge side of intuition.
This aspect of knowingness is where we can begin to tap into the edge of omniscience. But we can’t do this with local, human mind. Human mind is “special case” as Buckminster Fuller described. It can only focus on one thing at a time.
We have to step back into a openness or emptiness before we can take in the bigger picture.
We can always tell when mind has stepped in. As soon as we think we know something, we have shifted out of knowingness, into information. Mind. We discover that even when the mind has been expanded by new concepts, knowingness shrinks. Consciousness is narrowed when mind grows.
This is not a problem. It is the natural tendency of the mind to try and process whatever experiences arise. But what mind comes up with is a story. A story about life. But that story is not life itself so as long as we believe the minds stories, we won’t hear what’s really going on.
What is this knowingness that is pure knowledge? In Sanskrit they call it Veda. This is not the storehouse of impressions or Akashic records. That is just the data of the group experience. This is much deeper. It is not even the knowing of the mind of God. Veda is the pure knowledge of the intelligence of God.
It contains all possibilities in all possible creations. It structures the fundamental nature of everything that follows in expression.
Mind cannot digest the vastness of Veda. This is not knowledge one can know. It is knowledge we become. This is becoming the fundamental nature of who we are. This is true knowingness.
This happens by knowing nothing and being nothing. Then everything is known. This is called Vedic cognition. Self seeing Itself at the most fundamental level.
Thus, for this to take place, first we must come to know our true nature and become that. Then find that this nature is the nature of all things. And we become that. This is the dawning of unity consciousness. And the end of states of consciousness. We discover the unfoldment of consciousness in it’s totality.
One being, total knowing.
There is nothing else.
