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.

Who is listening?

Meditation: Centre in the Consciousness


butterfly-insect-wing-wildlife-87039.jpegLet us give attention to the consciousness space. How do you do that? It may sound simple, but actually it is very profound. The consciousness space is that centre of being in which the ego operates, the sense of “I,” and it is that centre of conscious experience. It is that centre of pure awareness within you in which you are experiencing the elements of nature, the movement of the mind, the movement of emotion.

In that centre of being you have a consciousness of Self, you have a consciousness of the elements, and then you have a consciousness of the subtle reality of mind and emotion and intention. Centre in that experience of “I exist.” Not that you are the thinker, that’s a role. Not that you are the one who is feeling, that’s a role. Not the body, that’s another role. But that very centre of being where the “I” plays in the consciousness, assuming all these different roles.

The goal in the play is to stay beyond the roles that you play; to get to that centre where you can observe every role without being caught in it, identified with it as your only reality. Centering in the consciousness space means centering in the “I” experience, but beyond every role; beyond the thinker, beyond the one that feels, beyond that vital person that drives the body, and beyond the body.

This is an experience that comes with grace, as you open up to grace. You cannot have this experience just by wanting it, but by opening up your being with humility and with a sincere desire to manifest the all of you. Surrendering to that inner process of transformation, that inner space will open up to you. It cannot be had by the one that plays with the ego or is caught in the ego.

Enter the Space of Freedom beyond Limitations


pexels-photo-349451.jpegWhen you sit to meditate, are you caught in the thought and the idea, or are you observing a deeper space from where you can see clearly the thoughts and ideas that are coming up in the mind, and you do not identify with them? You are not caught or carried away by them? When that happens, there is a greater peace that you feel in your inner being, because the mind is a burden, thinking is a burden, and you only appreciate that when the mind stops thinking; not suppressed in the silence, but naturally the thought stops. “Wow, how free I am!” That is why you have such a beautiful experience in deep sleep; because the mind is completely absent, inactive. You get up from a deep sleep and you say, “Oh my God, this is so good”; mind has disappeared. If in your waking and conscious experience, you can let the mind disappear, think of what you will experience in that space. That is the space of freedom.

Pathway to Observer-ship


pexels-photo-106132.jpeg We are conscious beings. We are conscious of mind, we are conscious of emotion, we are conscious of physicality, we are conscious of the world around us. But, “How conscious are we?” We are so tied up with the senses that all we are conscious of is what relates to the senses. And for some of us, it is more difficult to be conscious of our own thoughts as separate from who we really are. In other words, we are our thoughts. We pride ourselves in how we think. For some of us, it is our emotion; we are emotional. We say we are emotional, and we pride ourselves by the emotions we produce. And for some of us, it is the physicality; we take pride as we identify with our physicality. So the consciousness is very much identified with mind, with emotion, with physical body, with intentions, and that is how we largely define ourselves.

But can we go a step further to define ourselves not by any of these, but by That which is the source of all of these? The invitation then is to come to a deeper place inside where you can really experience consciousness as separate from the phenomenon, from the other; One without a second.

Consciousness is totally involved in the creation, immanent, and totally transcendental, beyond – and the same is reflected within our being. There is transcendence within us and there is immanence within us.

Initially, when you begin to observe when you are doing something, you may think that you do not enjoy it with the excitement as when you totally identify with it. But the more conscious you become and the more you centre in that transcendental space, and really knowing it, and realizing its nature, then you do not lose it when you identify. That is the place of enlightenment; to be in that transcendental consciousness and never lose it, even in the fullness of engagement.

Open up to Being


“There is no place to go, there is only opening up to be all that you are.”

All of Life is Energy


images.jpegIn the consciousness space, in that space of being, in that space of awareness; energy creates the drama that we call existence. All the thought forms, the emotional forms, the vital forms, even the physical forms, are energy at different levels of vibration, gross and subtle. So today, we look at the energy play in the consciousness. 

If we are a spark of the Infinite, if we carry in us the consciousness of immortality, if we have within us unlimited potential in being, if we have the power of intention to tap into energies from within us and manifest them on the outside, what does it say? It says, that we are in contact with an energy field in our infinite being, and we are able to manifest from that unlimited potential. All of what we are seeing, all of what we are projecting into the space,  everything is energy based. Everything that is created has a life period, and then ultimately it will be dissolved. It is time based, and it is also energy based.  Sri Vasudeva

Equality in the Inner Space


wooden_wheel_194628.jpg               We tend to think in terms of spatial existence and linearity: that one thing is here and then it is displaced, so another one takes its place, there is a linear distance between them. 

But let us consider for a moment, a wheel. Can you observe that in a wheel there is a part that doesn’t move at all? It is changeless, it is fixed,  while every other part is moving. For that wheel to function, the hub or the centre of the wheel, has to stay in connection with all the outer parts for it to operate as one unit. But in that hub there is a changeless nature. The hub is centred and everything spins around it. Now that hub does not have a linear existence. It is always in the same place and it is supporting every part of the wheel. In fact every part of the wheel is connected to that hub. 

Now, which part is unimportant? Every part of the wheel is like a link in a chain so every part is essential. If we were to compare that to the components on the inner field – intellect, ego, vitality, emotion, body – they are all connected to the same Source! Every one of them! Where does the intellect get its power from? Where does the emotion get its power from? Where does the body get its power from, as a unit, every cell, every atom? You will see that every one of these components are fed from that hub, that we call “the Source of consciousness,” or “the Source.”

So no one is superior to the other, they all have a connection to the Source, and what is required is for each one to realize how important the other is, not thinking one is higher, one is lower, no hierarchy. It’s like the wheel. How can you have hierarchy in a circle? If you have a meeting and everybody is in a circle, who is at the head? When you have a rectangular table, you have a head and you have a tail, as it were, but in a round setting, each is a head.

So if you were to look at this inner play field, each one is important! Without the body, without emotions, without the intellect, we don’t have a perfect team. And so do not think in terms of linearity, do not think in terms of spatial existence, but think, “When my intellect comes in, it is coming from the Source. When my emotions come in, they are coming from the Source. When my body is featured, it exists in the Source. When my vitality comes in, it is coming from the Source. When my ego comes in, it comes from the Source.” And the Source is the changeless consciousness. Sri Vasudeva
