The Hub of Being (44) Synopsis – Consciousness


Ĉonsciousness is said to be the cause of all things because it is everywhere emergent as each manifest entity. ~ Abhinavagupta

▫ A unified field of Ĉonsciousness entrains existence as an entertainment platform; populating all levels of life with the semblance of individualized consciousness.

You are the immensity and infinity of Ĉonsciousness. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj

▫ There are 7 nominal states of consciousness: awake, asleep, dreaming, transcendence, enlightenment, coherence consciousness, and realization (unity consciousness). While some states are mutually exclusive, such as being awake or asleep, others may be coincident: enlightenment is transcendence while awake.

▫ Efficacious meditation technique easily leads to transcendence: a state of consciousness in communion with Ĉonsciousness.

▫ With regular meditation and mental discipline, familiarity with transcendence engenders enlightenment: sustained mental silence, largely free from the distractions of nattermind.

▫ Manifestation is a mirage and attachment to it can only bring suffering. In contrast, considering life as entertainment, despite its vexations, utterly changes worldview.

▫ Knowing the noumenal nature of reality, one naturally progresses from enlightenment to realization, which is a state of unified consciousness with Ĉonsciousness.

Once you realize that bodily existence is but a state of mind, a movement in consciousness, that the ocean of Ĉonsciousness is infinite and eternal, and that, when in touch with Ĉonsciousness, you are the witness only, you will be able to withdraw beyond consciousness altogether. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
