As we progress through the stages of development in consciousness, we come to know some key qualities of divinity.
With Self Realization (Cosmic Consciousness), we come to know Omnipresence. This is experienced as liberation and feeling ourselves infinite, boundless, and eternal.
If refined perception is developing, we may also come to notice infinities within infinities. I’ve talked about that in ways like Nested Space.
With Unity, we come to know Omniscience, the vastness of available knowledge. We experience this as the “inner guru”. Whatever we put our attention on, we recognize we are it and know it. Later in the process, Veda or pure knowledge, the blueprint of creation, may be realized.
With Brahman, Omnipotence becomes known. The power of the divine. This can be somewhat ironic as the first impression of Brahman is often pure nothing. An absence even of consciousness and existence. But in the deep subtlety, under the covering of consciousness, pure divinity and potency are discovered, beyond anything previously found.
It’s worth mentioning that because we experience ourselves with these qualities – omnipresence, omniscience, and then omnipotence – we may get the idea we are these things. And in a sense, this is true. But because we retain our humanity, we have one foot in infinity, and the other in the world. True embodiment of the omni’s by the divine is not constrained, even in the physical. In other words, as a human we are not universally omni-anything. We can reflect a profound value of it but not the wholeness of divinity. This is reflected by the Kala scale.
It’s a mistake some have made, ignoring their humanity and confusing themselves with God. But the effect of that is to make themselves smaller rather than more divine. Divinity is in surrender, not self-acclamation.
