I recently realised that what I have always been writing about was beyond a non-evolutionary consciousness, a consciousness that doesn't want to change, this change of course takes one to let go of any present fixations to existing ideological concepts. I have changed the title of this blog for exactly this reason from The World of True Spiritual Acceptance to Evolutionary Consciousness. Allow yourself to evolve.
I’m sharing an
interesting response I received from one of my posts, Is Spiritual Awareness
About Feeling Good?, I found this response quite profound. The reason I titled
this post a secret doorway is it’s like switching on a light to a dark room or
opening up a door to a room already lit, awareness is very much like this and I
found sigbjørn response quite enlightening. We are indeed awakening each other,
it’s as if consciousness has decided to awaken itself to itself.
I’ve inserted sigbjørn
response in italic and my response to him in bold.
Seeing your two somewhat diamentral
opposite viewpoints on what consciousness is or what others deem it to be , as
a very interesting and useful discussion !
Jumping in here not because I got some great answers, but to learn. And
consciousness is one of the thing I mostly work on from a personal level. I’ve
always really struggle with a clear definition and I am not sure there is one.
Our perspective of consciousness is highly influenced by language, definitions
by experts (psychology), and yes from the Secrets and others more service to
Must say I agree with your " all
there is consciousness " theory, and want to put in that even the ego (
like in the Secret ) is absolute about consciousness. As I see it perhaps the
most important. It is hard to climb the ladder without the first steps missing.
And yes the ego barrier has to be broken at one point, when you realizes it
only gives you a short lived " feel good " experience. And to break
the barrier you have to open to a higher truth consciousness which is only
based on love, but also love for yourself. You see that all is connected and by
helping others with whatever it is , is helping yourself. This is also a form
of ego, in my mind , but an ego that sees you and I as equal and as important
as oneself. From here the healing can start. Don’t know if this makes sense!
G’day sigbjørn ørjansen
Interesting my friend, you certainly
show an open minded perspective, this is needed to perceive past
perspectives influenced by the ego, in other words understanding beyond human
The way I look at consciousness is, if
you are aware of it or perceive it in some way, that is consciousness, in other
words everything is of consciousness. Indeed the ego is also of
consciousness otherwise we wouldn’t be able to express it, in other
words the ego is worthy as everything of consciousness is, within
this perception, nothing is truly wrong or right, worthy or unworthy.
Indeed, helping anything is of the ego,
however, helping yourself or helping others to serve you is the ego in control,
anything controlling is of barriers which stops us from being aware of
anything beyond a controlling ego, this is very damaging to us so yes what you
say here makes perfect sense to me.
Here I will give an examples of my
experience with the complexity on consciousness, when I stated that the ego
inside the barrier is perhaps the most important state in spirituality work. A
" not so spiritual " individual, working from their service to self
ego mind, is a person often showing others by example what consciousness /
spiritual awareness is NOT about. Because it is important to know what’s not
working. So when you standing up - you never want to crawl, ever again. I
personal learned from competitions , - one of the most ego cantered activities
on this planet, I believe. Going from I AM BEST mentality to I really hope for
others to having success, felt right and propelled me into seeing higher truths
based on love. What do you think. Am I a little off here maybe?
To be non-spiritual, in other words
being about the self more than others even to the point of being
egotistical, is spiritual aware building, but only if we awake to such
awareness, many people become too fixated to this and never wake up,
this is when the ego makes us ill in mind body and spirit.
Being non-spiritually expressive is
still being in service to you and others as long as we become aware of how
destructive ignorance can be. Competition can actually connect us to a
consciousness beyond human perception, how many sports people find themselves
in this zone once they focus on their own abilities or their own self, in this
zone you are no longer competing with others once in this zone. How many
of these people know nothing about the score instil the end? It’s
basically becoming one with the ball or the car for example, the zone is about
becoming one with what you are doing. To get into this zone however
takes a lot of competitiveness and love of the game, it’s amazing how egotism
can lead to such a connection, a spiritual experience of becoming one with
yourself and something else, so yes it’s all a part of
When I trained myself to be " IN
THE FLOW " and I experienced that a lot, it was absolutely to connect to a
vast energy field and a not definable consciousness. But It allowed me to
perform at an " ego based winning mentality " , thereby confirming my
earlier said statements, for me anyway.
So to define what spiritual awareness
and consciousness is all about, is for me impossible. I totally agree in your
main theory., the consciousness of all - and perhaps ever expanding, but firmly
based on love and service to others.
Until we reach the oneness of all there is, and probably that’s not the end of
it either. lol, we have to do our very best from the place we find our self .
The real secrets and consciousness journey, will truly be exciting to
Thank you for sharing your great
reflections on this most important subject !
Reaching oneness; I think
once we reach this oneness, we do it all over again because it’s all of
consciousness either it be of oneness or otherwise,
everything of consciousness is worthy to express without judging one
part of consciousness, or another, as not being worthy in some way. I also
think consciousness is infinite within it’s expressions, experiencing oneness
is but another expression of consciousness, nothing is absolute.
Thank you so much in sharing your
experiences and thoughts with me
sigbjørn, I’m going to share this with
others if you don’t mind.
The secret doorway: Is this oneness, or motionless
timelessness we are trying to obtain, the ultimate in who we are, is this our
truer self? Again I would have to answer
this question with a yes and no, this is due to there being no ultimate final
state of our own existence, however, this oneness does depict the awareness of
all we are. While in this oneness, we are aware of all of consciousness, not
just parts of consciousness, this is why it’s of this oneness.
Now you have
to wonder why this consciousness wouldn’t just express this state of oneness if this oneness was the ultimate
state, the thing is, this oneness obviously isn’t a true depiction of our
ultimate state otherwise this consciousness wouldn’t be expressive of any other
state. It would seem to me the ultimate
state is defined by this consciousness expressing it’s own consciousness, not
just being aware of it’s own consciousness.
Our truer self isn’t just this oneness but the expressions of all of
what consciousness is, you can’t be in a true oneness state if you are not also
expressive of consciousness. This is like building something from a diagram,
it’s not whole until you build it and only then does it become one.
is like a diagram, it’s aware of how something is created but it doesn’t become
whole (one) until this diagram is expressed, oneness isn’t just about this
diagram, the awareness of our whole self, it’s also about the expressions of
this diagram, the expressions of consciousness.
understand this, this is the secret doorway, a doorway we have hidden from
ourselves so we may express more of what consciousness is. Once you enter into
this doorway, you become less expressive of this consciousness so ignorance has
it’s place, ignorance is obviously also
worthy as of any expression of this consciousness is in one way or another.
