What you can explore from this article
As most of us are concerned, how do we have certain perception of living our life either happily or with some tension and problems? It is limited field of consciousness in us, which perceive the perceptions we have when impulses received by our sense organs including our mind from outer or inner stimuli from our surrounding or from within our body are processed by our brain in the form of certain deterministic patterns. When these deterministic patterns are exposed to our consciousness, our consciousness decodes the meaning of these patterns and sends the meaning to our brain and our brain operates accordingly.
If the consciousness interprets these deterministic patterns developed by our brain as positive, we become happy; and when the consciousness interprets these deterministic patterns developed by our brain as negative, we become unhappy. Our brain translates the interpretation given by our consciousness in form of thoughts and these thoughts are so powerful that they possesses our entire body-mind system in their clutches and this way we lose our free existence as we remain oblivious of our original existence free from the effects of thoughts in our mind.
So, even if you are happy or unhappy, in both ways you have been possessed by your mind having relevant thoughts and these thoughts possessing you completely. This way you are a slave of your mind. Your mind craves for positive impulses and it keeps dictating you and making you run from pillar to post in search of happiness. But, even if you find happiness by having positive impulses, you are still a slave of your mind as you don’t have any freedom of having your own choices. Your mind exercises choices, not real you as your whole perceived existence have become a tool of your mind.
Your real existence is out of the domain of your consciousness, the pure awareness. You may be cognizant of yourself; but you are not conscious of your actual self. Cognition is a very gross and elementary level of Consciousness. This way your mind is living you, no matter you may be a very rich, powerful, wealthy and famous man. Even in this case you are devoid of your freedom.
The moment your worldly possession, prosperity, power, fame, relatives, friends leave you, your life becomes a hell. In both the cases when you are either happy or unhappy, you are the prisoner of your mind. Your minds rules over you; you are not in the control of your mind. Your mind enjoy your being; your being don’t enjoy your mind.
When you are possessed by your mind, you are governed by desires, emotions, lust, attachment, anger, envy, hatred, appreciations by others, fame, relationship, worldly social conventions, your beliefs, thoughts etc. You behave and react according to the conditioning of your mind. So, in fact, your mind is doing everything and the consciousness in you, which is an instrument bestowed by God in you to feel infinite eternal divine bliss is tortured by your mind as it does not get opportunity to feel the actual divinity. This way you fail the very scheme and purpose of God to create you. God succumbs before your ego and ignorance.
Now, try to understand what the meaning of you living your life is. Now try to understand this esoteric truth through an example of physics experiment. When you keep two mirrors parallel just opposite to each other, infinite images are formed in each mirror. This fact can lead to the realization of God, the infinite, the eternal bliss and supreme consciousness.
What is God?
God is a very homogenous field the infinite eternal bliss and supreme consciousness free from all deterministic patterns and this field pervades everywhere through-out the whole manifested and yet to be manifested existence.
God is not a super human being controlling each and everything. Had God been a super human being controlling each and everything happening in this universe, then there would not have been any violence, human cruelty, exploitation of poor, misery etc.
We are not able to experience this Godly field because the limited consciousness of ourselves is always busy in decoding the deterministic patterns developed by our brain through the inputs of stimuli collected by our sense organs and mind. Our limited consciousness is never free; it is all the time shadowed and clouded by our mind.
But if we anyhow either free our consciousness or expand it, then it will get exposed to the omnipresent infinite field of God and we will happen to realize the infinite eternal bliss and beatitude, the inherent reality of Godly field. This is the state of Super-consciousness which is free from all deterministic patterns.
State of Supreme-consciousness
When you realize this state of Supreme-consciousness, you feel that:
1. An unknown infinite peace, bliss and joy has transcended in your being.
2. You are free from all desires, negative emotions like fear, hatred, grief, anger etc.
3. You realize eternity as time ceases to exist in this state.
4. You feel that you exist in each and every bit of the universe, or you can say that the whole existence is within you.
In this state of super-consciousness, you transcend the space-time continuum and your body-mind system which is a localized phenomenon in the space-time continuum. This is the state of ultimate joy as beyond this there can not be a bigger joy.
Even if you possess all wealth, power, worldly privileges and fame of this earth, all this earthly happiness can not match the intensity of the divine bliss which you realize in the state of super-consciousness. In this state you come out of your limited self and evolve to the actual Cosmic Self, Cosmic Awareness or Supreme Consciousness.
Meaning of You living Life
When you realize the Super-consciousness, then you can say that you live your life. When you live your life, the reality of your outer surrounding is not able to affect you or your inner bliss and joy. You are in your own inner intoxication of joy; you are no more dependent on outside situation for your own inner happiness. This is the real freedom. Now your consciousness is using your mind, not your mind possessing your consciousness.
Now the question is how to expand your consciousness or how to free your limited consciousness from your impulsive thoughts? To know this, please write to me.
