…Our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different. We may go through life without suspecting their existence; but apply the requisite stimulus, and at a touch they are there in all their completeness, definite types of mentality which probably somewhere have their field of application and adaptation. No account of the universe in its totality can be final which leaves these other forms of consciousness quite disregarded. How to regard them is the question,- for they are so discontinuous with ordinary consciousness. William James
When reading this material you must think to yourself “does this insult my reason or does it fit in, make sense, is it understandable, is it acceptable even though it may be in opposition to something I previously believed. Can I now look at this and say “I can accept that, that makes sense, equally or more than that which I previously held to be true”. What is not realised is that all information is there for the asking. You merely have to find your own particular way of accessing that information.
Now, life as you see it is relatively simple but so is life when you are not in the physical. There is no mystery, there is merely the same consciousness, the same self, if you wish, innumerable selves, innumerable consciousness groupings that wish to gain experience, and some entertainment along the way. It is basically gaining knowledge and why not do it in an enjoyable fashion and seek out which experiences you wish to repeat because they are enjoyable and which experiences you do not wish to repeat.
There are many that have accessed knowledge unavailable to them in their normal waking state by merely entering into a form of meditative contemplation or what you would call musing upon a subject. Look at your great scientists, your great artists and your great thinkers, philosophers. They come up with theories and logical and mathematical depictions that seem to have a certainty about them. These are not all worked through rationally. They simply, came. They became aware of them because they were there to be accessed, while letting the mind rove in a particular focus they came across this information and were able to “remember” it because they had moved their focus away from the physical.
What do you do with this knowledge? You become aware that you are more than just the physical. You are a larger consciousness merely focusing into a smaller arena and focusing so hard that you simply forget that there are many other areas in which you are able to focus and are indeed focusing upon anyway.
This material will enable you to think in a new fashion. Able to look at tired dogmas and see them not so much in a new light, but see an alternative that expands and enlarges upon the original point. Now the original point was taken as being factual, or what you like to call truth, until people began to question it and then a new truth arises. Now what you must remember is that however words are presented, they are presented to be receivable by those who are exposed to the information. Yet within months or years the message may have to be updated and may not even seem different, but once the possibility of something is elucidated then that opens the mind to whole new vistas and endeavours. So then an entirely new concept can be presented, which then is able to be considered and possibly assimilated, whereas if that concept had been introduced in the first place there would have been no framework in which to place it, and therefore it would have been rejected.
The information that is imparted we would wish to be absorbed, understood and fitted into one’s structure of knowledge and for that to happen you must be open and willing and wanting that knowledge. Therefore it is much easier for us to fill the gaps that you feel are in your knowledge than to give you information that you have no structure in which to fit it.
We knew, for example, that you would be interested in love relationships because everybody is. So it was easy to describe that. We have elucidated how consciousness has thoughts, has ideas, others are attracted, decisions are made and the implicate, the latent, is explicated into the “reality” you find yourself part of.
So, you might ask about the purpose of this life and as we have said before, the purpose of any life is what the consciousness desires to be the purpose. As soon as you sit and think about what you are doing, what you are thinking, you will soon realise that you are making your own purpose. Nobody is making the purpose for you. The only purpose in your life is what you wish it to be.
You must realise that consciousness is expressing itself, here, and that consciousness is just the same, there.
