Consciousness is defined by the Cosmos (hence the after-life)

    It makes perfect sense to say that mind defines reality while reality defines mind. Hence consciousness is defined by cosmos (as envisioned within my dream the other night).

    God consciousness is the global consciousness that encompasses the material world. But only when the observer reaches a kind of spiritual unity with the universe and feels that light and glory within himself. Consciousness can be witnessed by the mind's eye and when one turns inwardly to view it, with the intent of locating one's beautiful and radiant essence of self one's brain may light up and one may actually experience a change in one's consciousness, although it may only be temporary. They call this enlightenment. In this case one becomes the supreme reality that has no beginning nor end. A timeless, space-less, material-less essence in all 'my' glory.

    Thank you.

    There is no philosophy here. It is just the same religious assertions you were were putting forward in your last thread.

    Ok, yes the subconscious mind which is "defined" by reality creates the reality experienced by the conscious self. That doesn't mean though that the reality we consciously experience is an accurate experience of actual reality.

    Don't know this "God consciousness" actually exists. Yes, the experience exists to the conscious self but that doesn't mean the experience is an actual representation of actual reality.

    I can experience all kinds of crap. The subconscious mind is capable of creating these experiences for the conscious self.

    The conscious self is actually a very small part of the entire mind. We are mostly in the dark about what our own minds are doing. Our lack of awareness however makes it seem that we are consciously in control. That we can rely on the experiences provided by the unconscious mind.

    For the most part, it seems we can but not 100%.
