Consciousness at Our Core
IN the beginning there was God, oops, Consciousness and then there was a bunch of stuff that happened. And in the long run, many, many, many seasons later man showed up. And the truth is that everything is within the core of Consciousness. We tend to think in terms that core is small but in reality, everything is held within.
Now humans can hold awareness of this core. Let’s call it Consciousness. In tuning in to it, it is there active and the stillness of creation.
In our minds’ humans can organize with a sense of hierarchy. This entitles us to often to take positions of authority of another person or people. We decide how we will share living space with other creatures on this small pale blue dot and even the dot itself. In our minds we have sovereignty over all. This is a fallacy.
By the time the human life form showed up on this planet it was really Johnny Come Lately. Life had been going on for billions of years. Ice ages came and went, dinosaurs came and went. Beach front property was a lot less in space than it is now. Earth was Being and just fine thank you.
Human references with our senses are what we have in order to decide how we organize our sense of life. We decide those definitions. We create religions at times that reflect when our science wasn’t up to snuff. We often use science to justify, validate our hypothesis about being. We used our building awareness as cultures and civilizations to find our connection in the physical and non-physical realms of environment and thought. And the ability to manipulate our lives in certain ways started to develop either through physical means or in harnessing and using non-physical means.
Like a body full of cells so are we with other humans within the Consciousness core. We are relation-based creatures sharing this on planet Earth. In a healthy body all of it works together as a whole no matter the limitations of the parts. Each is specific to the working of the whole. Our life form must be appreciated, held in awe of how it constantly strives to be in a harmonious state of balance.
We make assumptions, take things for granted, consider ourselves successful and independent these days free of the whole of mankind, planet Earth and the cosmos. Not possible. We question whether we make differences in being alive. We play at life and see disconnect between actions and outcomes in our lives in our environment around us and putting one before another.
We have put aside what our ancestors learned and passed on to us through our genes. That life is precious. To learn from our past and let it help guide us. To recognize what might look different is only a different aspect of the totality of life. That we are so small and how to find comfort in that and not fear.
We will always use our emotions to guide us. They are the flavoring life has to offer. We will think about what we feel. Often, they would seem to control us. In attitudes, world vision and how we each are in the world.
All of this creates a body of awareness and form. Our stories and DNA give us reasons and justifications for positions in the relation with ourselves and others.
It leads to the awareness that there is something that humans can’t do. We can conceive life, we can birth life, but we can’t manufacture the spark we call life. We can only create it from existing living tissue. It is unique in the cosmos, this human form and our fellow living creatures. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist in different forms, in different times and places.
Now is the time to stop. Breathe. Put a sock on the monkey mind and give it a rest. Breathe. Release the pressure you find inside in being you. Breathe. Reengage. And, this time you are doing it from within yourself and listening to your truths. Not those projected truths, those surface “to fit in” truths, but from your essence, Consciousness which is aware on a whole different level about the wholeness of being and all its elements. We are each just one of many in this cosmic soup holding this core of Consciousness in form.
