“Men and women will forever make gods of others rather than see the god in themselves.”
― Ki Longfellow, The Secret Magdalene
What is the belief in Infinite Consciousness?
Understanding Infinite Consciousness in its entirety may be difficult for some people. It may be easier to understand the concept in pieces. Breaking down the words that describe it and concepts that explain it may be a good place to begin.
Infinity is defined as an undefined quantity without a beginning or an end.
Infinity is a constant Time Continuum. The space-time continuum is a mathematical model that combines space and time into a single idea often displayed in movies depicting space travel. This space-time is represented by a model where space is three-dimensional and time has the role of the fourth dimension.
We view the third dimension as being concrete and the fourth dimension as being abstract.
The Time Continuum combines both the concrete and the abstract aspects of existence to create infinite.
This is a difficult concept for our finite brain to conceive in its entirety. Infinity is the universal twin to Eternity—existence that goes on forever while existing and not existing simultaneously outside the earthly parameters and limitations of time. Yeah, back to the Planet of the Apes and Dr. Cornelia.
Consciousness is the state of being aware. It is the totality of one’s thoughts, feelings, and impressions. We are aware, therefore we are. It is the twin to “being.” I exist, therefore I am.
You think, therefore you are.
If you try to contemplate these definitions and concepts with the analytical mind, you may very well chase your own mental tail until you are too dizzy to continue. However, if you embrace them as gnosis—knowing—it becomes easier to see them as pieces of abstract fourth dimensional consciousness that fit perfectly into the Bigger Puzzle of Infinite Consciousness.
This is abstract, not linear thinking. It defies steps. It is held in our minds as a completed whole fourth dimensional Gestalt concept and brought into the earth plane’s third dimension like pieces of a puzzle that is then assembled like the pieces of a chair.
Gestalt theory, or Gestaltism, originated in Germany in the 1920s and is a psychological point of view that says it is necessary to consider the whole of something. Gestalt theory holds that the whole is more than the sum of its parts, because the whole has a meaning apart from its individual elements.
A whole chair has a different meaning from the leg of the chair. Combining holistic medicine with conventional medicine can give you healing that is larger than the sum of its individual parts when it includes your Physician-within.
“Irony is a clear consciousness of an eternal agility, of the infinitely abundant chaos.” Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
In part 5 of my article series, we will continue the discussion on the endless Ocean of Gnosis its daily application to us, our world and the Universe.
