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.

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

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…
