The Bailiwick

There are some curious paradoxes that arise as we grow spiritually. For example, knowing we are not the body-mind yet experiencing through it anyway. Or knowing the world was never created in the first place, yet living in it. Or why creation repeats if it’s completed by our experiences of it. Another one came into focus during a conversation the other night. On the one hand, the cycles of time and rising and falling consciousness directly relate to the position of this planet in this solar system in this galaxy. A planet in another solar system in our galaxy will … Continue Reading…

Outside Inside

Kristin’s talk brought thoughts about the way “finding the outside within” can evolve. During our voyage of self-discovery, this process can be a key theme in our subjective experience of reality. We often start out experiencing only the outside as real. This is one reason that we look for answers, needs, and solutions outside of ourselves – that’s where it seems real. There’s a very distinct boundary between that and our inner experiences. For many, the inner experience is unpredictable, foggy, and painful. And blamed on things outside of us. After we take up a spiritual practice or through an awe-inspiring experience, … Continue Reading…

Gravity and SpaceTime

Gravity and SpaceTime

Einstein proposed that gravity is simply the curvature of spacetime. However, as I’ve observed on this blog, space is an effect of consciousness becoming aware of itself – in that recognition is a subtle gap (a-b). As this arises from consciousness curving back on itself, illustrated above, space is inherently curved. It is not a flat plane. Also, attention flows, perpetually curving in on itself. Gravity, the attractive force, becomes inherent. Further, because consciousness becomes self-aware at every point and scale, it is nested like Russian dolls and thus space is also nested. These nested spaces cause the effect science … Continue Reading…

The Structure of the World

There are many ways to describe how the world becomes. Partly this depends on the perspective you have and what is known clearly. The perspective shifts with each stage. Fundamentally we can say Divinity gives two “qualities” that are key to this process: alertness and liveliness. Liveliness stirs alertness into awareness and then into flowing as consciousness. Consciousness curves back on itself and the lively radiance leads it to become self-aware. The 3-fold dynamics of consciousness emerges – the observer (a), the process of observation (c), and the observed (b). If you think of the above in three dimensions, it … Continue Reading…

The Layers

Recently, friends have been corresponding about “the mystery”. Can reality be known or is it destined to remain something of a mystery, greater than self-knowledge? My position is that we can know it when we are it. As we unfold who we are, we can unfold all the knowledge that comes with that. Taking a Unity perspective, all form arises in the self-referral dynamics of consciousness. If an experience is taking place, even of an emptiness, it is taking place in consciousness. By this I don’t mean because we’re conscious we can have an experience of an “outside” world. I … Continue Reading…

Illustrating Consciousness

Illustrating Consciousness

Last year, I finally got around to posting an illustration of the dynamics of consciousness that takes place both locally and globally. I wanted to take this a bit further and illustrate more. I mentioned that this process takes place both globally and at every point within itself. Here is an illustration of “at every point within itself” Essentially, life fills consciousness. Liveliness stirs every point into a unique perspective of the whole. Interestingly, our own body is similarly made of up large numbers of devata or light beings that manage the same function in all bodies in our creation. … Continue Reading…
