Consciousness

I have considered consciousness from many different perspectives. The perspective I am currently exploring is that there is only one consciousness.

For the sake of this description lets call it universal consciousness, and lets call the consciousness that could be seen as my consciousness, individual consciousness. They are both the same consciousness, but individual consciousness is only part (or a subset) of universal consciousness.

Now so far there is nothing physical in…

Theosophy, Kabbalah and Ancient Egyptian Language ... all are one.....

Hello ALL,

From my Rudimentary understanding of Theosophy we are encouraged to attain perfection through learning and service to others. The Kabbalah relates to a dynamic activation of powers which connect us with a communion to the Brotherhood of Angels. Ancient Egyptian Language reflects an occult knowledge of the soul (the micro-cosm) and the macro-cosm (the Cosmos).. Queen Hatshepsut is referred to as a disciple of the Great White Brotherhood of Luxor.... her reign of Peace for…

Another description

Here is a good one for you. Our adventures into space should be viewed as validation for what we have already have within.

When we are introduced into this world, our "consciousness" isn't large enough to understand our own hands and feet. Through an expansion of consciousness (and very rapidly at first) our awareness grows (we gather information), We define the world around us by what we discover within ourselves. We have no preconceptions, we have not yet been exposed to the limits…

As above, so below

David's comment "as above, so below" made me think of above as Monad and below as monad, and so I think of "m/Monad" as a representation of  a reality that incorporates all possible variables in terms of interpretations, dimensions, karma, kama, maya, manvataras, etc.

General Theosophy #131

“Theosophy is your religion minus the words.”—General Theosophy

Added by Richard Ihle on February 15, 2015 at 5:27pm — 1 Comment

as above, so below

Our science recognizes that a single neuron in our brain is incapable of thought, feeling, sight, or any of the things we use to gather information, make connections to that information to give it meaning so that we can understand anything.

Now consider that our society is our social mind. Each of us merely a neuron in it. If we apply "as above, so below", what does that say about anything, any of us might say or do?

My Answer

There is a new hire at work I started working with today. So of course there was social conversation throughout the day. On the way home I mentioned this forum, and he asked me what it was about. Now of course I had to think about it a bit. Then I asked him if he went to the grocery store a lot. Of course he said he did. I asked him to think about his favorite thing in the store, the thing he buys most often. I asked him what row it was in, before he could answer, I asked him what was the…

Questions

I have been rambling on here at the forum for some time now. It seems the more I post, the less everyone else does. I get the impression that the different ways I connect things (and I am aware of how far out there I can be) is having an adverse effect on the interactions here.

If this is so, I do sincerely apologize.

My goal is to introduce perspectives that cause others to question some paradigms that (I think) we tend to just accept.

I would like to ask (at this…

Patterns

I have mentioned repeating patterns often in my discussions here. I ran across this yesterday. It is a good example of what I've been trying to say. It is a bit shallow, but I think it will get the idea across.

The show is called "Mankind Decoded", if the link does not work, it can be found at the history channels H2 site.

The truth of truth

People tend to get so wrapped up in their own truth, they forget that "the truth" applies to everyone. To see this truth you have to understand that that it is the same for all of us,

We create our lives from the difference of these 2 potentials, our own truth, and "the truth"

If you insist on your truth over "the truth", welcome to hell.

It is when we all start looking for "the truth" over our own truth that heaven is manifested.

Heaven is what faith in "the…

General Theosophy #129

“The difference between a theosophist and a Theosopher: the former is possibly just a person who is at least willing to consider as epistemologically valid someone else’s intuitive knowledge or wisdom resulting from personal experience of Transcendental (‘Divine’) Nature; the latter is possibly the someone else.”—General Theosophy
