Global One TV: Multimedia for Mystics

Blog by Eric Allen Bell - God is Closer to You than Your Self

Most people's lives are cluttered up with things: material things, things to do, things to think about. Their lives are like the history of humanity, which Winston Churchill defined as "one damn thing after another." Their minds are filled up with the clutter of thoughts, one thought after another. This is the dimension of object consciousness that is many people's predominant reality, and that is why their lives are so out of balance. Object consciousness needs to be balanced by space consciousness for sanity to return to our planet and for humanity to fulfill its destiny. The arising of space consciousness is the next stage in the evolution of humanity.

Space consciousness means that in addition to being conscious of things - which always comes down to sense perceptions, thoughts, and emotions - there is an under-current of awareness. Awareness implies that you are not only conscious of things (objects), but you are also conscious of being conscious. If you can sense an alert inner stillness in the background while things happen i the foreground - that's it! This dimension is there in everyone, but most people are completely unaware of it. Sometimes I point to it by saying, "Can you feel your own Presence?"

Space consciousness represents not only freedom from ego, but also from dependency on the things of this world, from materialism and materiality. it is the spiritual dimension which alone can give transcendent and true meaning to this world.

Whenever you are upset about an event, a person, or a situation, the real cause is not the event, person, or situation but a loss of true perspective that only space can provide. You are trapped in object consciousness itself. The words This too, will pass when used as a pointer can restore awareness of that dimension to you.

Another pointer to the truth in you is contained in the following statement: "I am never upset for the reason I think."

I think that is a enlighting.But I would wittness the caos of infinite multipable layers of thought and each word having mulitalbe meanings within and outside then emtional triggers that I can trace all the way back to childhood but nerver put iti n words until now. You know it is about describing the thought or thoughts but taking the name into each one even while having conversations,working, eating, having sex , praying, and meditating. I went to group Zhker after one person would step on my foot because she sensed I would go up and out.
I felt very inspired and peaceful when I read Tolle. I had to read it again to see if I'd missed any of those good feelings and I had.
I went thru a few years time of being aware of inner presence. I'd say what are you thinking now? what are you feeling? it brought me into a timeless state. but I can still get trapped into worrying and making stuff up to worry about. this is a good idea to ask yourself, if you can feel your own presence and be conscious of being conscious, so nothing is unconscious in that case.
sometimes I sit there and think wow I'm alive, here, it's fun to be aware of yourself, your life, to feel your heart beating. I learned stuff from every book and article these days. I hope Tolle hears my gratitude for his work.

What Happens When I Die? - by Eric Allen Bell

Art by Alex Grey



In order to answer the question, "What happens when I die?" I feel it is important to take a look at something a bit less speculative and that is the question of what happens when we live.



There is no way to understand death if you don't know what life is. What happens between the moment you take…

What is the True Meaning of Yoga? - by Eric Allen Bell

 

With each passing day, as I look inward and as I take in what is going on with the world outside, my heart opens. And the more it opens the more I understand why I have kept it shut for so long. The more my heart opens, the more I understand why the world has closed its heart.

Meditations on Ego and Enlightenment - by Eric Allen Bell

 

Over a long enough period of time, the survival rate for your body is zero.  Contained within the body is the brain and one of the functions of the brain is the ego.  The ego is the self concept of the brain-body organism and it does not like what was just said one bit.…
