Consciousness: The Urgent Importance of Our Willful Transformation

Gabriel D. Roberts delivers an essay on what consciousness is and why it is important to recognize and work  toward a heightened state of consciousness.

“For some readers, the word consciousness conjures up visions of bearded Hindu masters, to those from a traditional Christian view, consciousness is associated with the devil’s white light intended to fool the eager initiate into allowing a demonic possession. But what is consciousness, really? The standard definition is simply awareness. Doctors judge levels of consciousness while prepping a person for surgery, because the level of awareness of the patient is integral to judging when a surgery can get started. It is simply a term for the level of an individual’s ability to accurately percieve the environment in which they exist.”

    yes, that word and all words do conjure
    so wee spell to each other our messages in a bottle
    in the hopes wee can discover the Logos behind words
    according Huang Po
    “You can’t know it
    but you can be it.”
