“What is Consciousness? – a million-dollar question isn’t it? In this video Sadhguru clears it out for us, looking at it from Mystic point of view, which puts in a different dimension which we have never heard from anyone.”.
BUT then consider the ‘MIND” of the Dreamer, isn’t this the absolute consciousness where all concepts originate and exist. The MIND of Christ, One with God or dreaming of separation. Neither can be explained with the symbols of this world, but both can be experienced here. This is the ‘teachings’ of Jesus, The Gospel, The Good New. “I have overcome the world.”
He, Sadhguru, does point out that the illusion of chemical induced experiences may appear to be mystical insight but nevertheless are still in the illusionary realm. The soap bubble image is a great example of this idea. And some great comments are posted too – well worth reading and meditating on. I particularly like Blondie Kowalski’s posting:
“Experiencing yourself as boundless consciousness is what a baby feels all the time. Before you learn to distinguish between You and Objects, there is no subject and object and you are everywhere as pure consciousness. Since for babies there is no subject/object distinction there is also no Time, so you are also Now and Forever. Observe babies, they feel that they are the objects they look at, there is no subject/object duality in them at all, only bliss and instincts. It’s a profound illusion this, the illusion of mystical union with God and consciousness as source of creation. This experience of at-oneness lies at the root of everyone’s personality because we were all babies once, it’s like the carpet on which the furniture of your personality gets accumulated. Is that consciousness really God? I doubt it. Accessing this dimension gives you psychological wisdom in that you get to look at the structure of your personality from the deepest level inside yourself that is possible, almost like inverting yourself from the inside and out.”
I also doubt its God, I think it’s the CHARACTER of the DREAM, intensely trying to identify itself as a SPECIAL and SEPARATE existence from the ALL. ISN’T IT SO !
