Levels of Consciousness


JTLW4CK8XP.jpg

When you look at human beings, you will see different levels of consciousness manifesting and different usage of the brain capacity. When the brain is being used fully and in the light, we call that expression sattvic; it is full of sattvic qualities – peacefulness, harmony, unity, compassion, kindness, selflessness.

When there is darkness, ignorance, we see tamasic behaviour.

We can see degrees of processing:
– in the dark when the intellect is being used in ignorance, we see tamas
– in varying degrees of light, the desire is there to transform things for selfish reasons; we see the rajas;
-and ultimately in the light, intellect is used for unselfish reasons and we see satva.
