My Personal Contribution to Global Consciousness

In my limited awareness bubble, there seems to be a consciousness on Earth that cares about and serves all life. For example, I experience growing numbers of humans connecting via social platforms all over the globe. We are building a network of care – making contributions to a collective family that supports a universal consciousness of love.

Why is this so? If not, why does it feel so real to me? Could I be experiencing my own creation based on my desires and calling it reality?

Who is perceiving this vision of connection? How does the WHO affect the HOW and WHAT of that perception?

What does my personal perception do to affect the perception of others? How does it affect global consciousness?

How does global consciousness work? What does my belief in a global consciousness contribute to it? How does my belief in its reality make it real? In what ways does what I believe matter?

Is It Just a Dream?

What if it’s all a dream – my dream – about ME?

  • How would I know I’m dreaming?
  • Does awareness of a dream make a difference to the dream, to the dreamer?
  • What am I seeking to illustrate with my dream? Who am I illustrating it to?
  • Do I feel like I am in charge of my dream?
  • Who does my dream affect? Why?
  • What dream am I defending? Why?
  • How do my feelings affect my dream?
  • Who is the dreamer of my dream?

Am I changing when I perceive the world is changing? Does my perception of the world change when I perceive that I have changed? Does the world seem more caring because I want to perceive it that way? Or is the world simply what it is – independent of my perception of it? How does my perception of the world affect the world?

What if my sense of the world is due to me noticing that I’m becoming more aware of my connection to myself?

In my limited awareness bubble, might I favor expanding awareness because I equate it to better survival? Regardless, how do my judgments affect my perceptions? Could the world be an indicator of my awareness of who I am?

What does the dream speak about the dreamer?

Is perception dependent upon and illustrative of belief? Might questioning my perceptions offer a pathway through awareness to belief?

Who am I looking at when I look at my world? Do I perceive me when I perceive the world? Do I master my world by mastering me?

Might love of others be an expression of self-love that I’ve extended into my perceptual world? Is my perceptual world an expression of how I love myself? Might that expression be a celebration of self – a love poem from me to me?

A Gateway to What Is Beyond Reality?

In order for me to be open enough to respond comfortably to questioning my personal feelings, I must trust who is asking. It’s a safety issue.

First of all, I may be completely unaware that I’m living in a bubble of limited awareness. Before that awareness, I’m not interested in exploring what “ain’t there!” Think The Truman Show, in which Truman stayed within his bubble until he realized his world MIGHT be different than it appeared to him. It was then that he questioned more and more until he literally bumped up against the bubble. Only after his encounter with the limit, did he discover the doorway.

Until my mind entertains the question, “What else is there?” I’ll remain within the safety of my own rightness, my bubble of limited awareness and defense. That question may introduce an element of doubt, causing a cascade, an avalanche of questions. Just as it did for Truman, this cascade can cause me to question my truths. Doubt opens the possibility for awareness beyond.

Questioning Reality

How do I question my reality when doing that feels so unsafe. Remember, trust is related to openness, which is related to safety. Do I trust myself enough to ask those questions?

Why would I ask about what’s beyond my current understanding? Why can’t I just accept that everything is working as I intend it to work?

Who do I think I am that can doubt the reality of the universe? Who do I think I am to question my perceptions? I know what I know!

What if I’m unaware that I’m already asking the universe a question and it is responding? Perhaps I’m unaware that I even CAN question reality. And yet, here I am asking… 😉

Beyond Reality?

To get beyond my bubble of limited awareness, I may have to inquire into that realm of “beyond.” Like Truman, I may have to acknowledge by faith that there MAY BE something beyond my limited perception. I may have to allow doubt into my life. Then, I can let go of my tenacious hold on how life should be – how it should behave, how I must perceive it.

Relationship Between Manifestation and Intention

Intention affects probability that affects manifestation.

When I perceive certainty as a necessity, possibilities become the enemy. In this limited state of awareness, my narrow view of what is possible defines the borders of what is probable in my creation. As I become aware that my intentions turn infinite possibilities into finite probabilities, my need for and defense of certainty can give way to the light of inquiry.

How might intentions affect probabilities?

Perhaps we can imagine probabilities as a subset of all possibilities. ALL possibilities exist in any given instant – in potential. Intention turns potential possibilities into probabilities that then manifest as outcomes perceived by an observer.

An observer (me) turns ALL possibilities into a few probabilities – with intention. My intention – whether conscious of it or not – dwindle a few probabilities down to a tiny few. Then those tiny few coalesce into one observation – that confirms the belief of the observer – me. Thus, I’ve successfully defended my certainty.

Is Intention a Game of Confirmation?

I like to think of myself as an individual among many other individuals – me vs you. I confirm this perception by perceiving my body separate from yours. In this way, I confirm MY belief as THE belief and then seek to enforce that belief unilaterally. I’ve even created a bias to automate this process – the confirmation bias. In a very real sense, EVERYTHING I perceive confirms my limited awareness of everything that can be believed.

Thus, the confirmation game is THE ONLY game in town.

Am I a Belief?

Maybe I can state that question, “Can I be anything else than a belief?” Maybe EVERYTHING is a belief – including ME, which is my perception that confirms a belief. And what is a belief? Maybe NO-THING… 😉

Could probabilities represent specifics of belief? And intentions represent the play of consciousness in that creation sandbox?

Turning an Intention into a Specific Manifestation

The more generalized my intention, the higher the probability I’ll be surprised at its manifestation. Intentions outside my awareness will affect the manifestation of my intention. Thus the surprise when intentions born of my unawareness result in “unintended” outcomes.

Because of my limited awareness, I’m unaware of who I am as a belief. Meanwhile, that belief continually manifests itself! As I become aware of this situation, I can question my manifestations to become aware of my intentions – and maybe the beliefs that drive the intention-manifestation bus.

Rather than experiencing surprise at “unintended” outcomes, I can instead notice what those outcomes say about what I believe. “I don’t want this [outcome]” turns into “I was unaware of my intention for this [outcome]. Now that I am aware, I can inquire into what I believe that brought about this [outcome].” This inquiry decreases confirmation certainty and increases the probability for an AHA moment.

“Inquiry is fatal to certainty.” (Will Durant)

Questioning My Certainty

For example, I might ask myself –

  • What does this [outcome] symbolize about me?
  • How  do I feel about this symbol?
  • Why am I defending this feeling?
  • Who am I as a result of defending this feeling?

Remember: the inquiry is all about exploration into realms of possibility – rather than to resolve an issue you have with an outcome you don’t like. It’s about awareness.

In Defense of the Secret

When something is secret, it’s hidden. How do I defend for or against what I’m unaware of?

In my bubble of limited awareness, I work at keeping a secret from myself, limiting my awareness. To remain in this trance, I hide a secret – substituting real with imagined data I choose to defend. Protected within my comfort zone fortress, I experience what I want rather than what is – even when I don’t like it. I didn’t say I was good at this!

What About the Secret?

What if I’m not seeking truth? Maybe it’s far too frightening, mind-boggling, and/or pointless for me to entertain. Instead, I want to experience a reality of my own making. Might that imagined “reality” require me to keep a bit of mystery, an unknown element, a secret? After all, if the secret were revealed, my fanciful reality might not be able to handle it.

Would secreting certain information out of my conscious reach allow me to hold onto beliefs that support my uncertain reality? With beliefs like lack, for example, I can entertain fantasies of competition. Through competition, I feel I can win back and compensate for what I’ve lost. When I become aware that any lack I experience is but a chosen perspective, I resolve the paradox, and the secret begins to reveal itself.

How Do I Defend the Secret?

In order to know the secret, I must trade all that I understand for it. To do this, I must question with full intent what I hide from myself. In this way, I willingly offer up my defense of overt rightness for covert understanding.

In order to do that, my will to understand must exceed my need to defend what I presently believe. I must get around my confirmation bias. To know the truth of something requires conscious thought. Knowing my propensity for blocking awareness of truth, I would want to challenge any concept I believe is true.

Thus, a single, well-defended secret prevents my limited mind from waking out of a hypnotic trance of my own making. I am good at this!

Why Do I Defend the Secret?

I like to think I have control of this world, able to make accurate predictions. This keeps me busy working to satisfy survival needs that distract me from knowing the secret. If revealed, the secret might end my fantasy, which might appear as death to me. This because the world I’ve worked so hard to build might be in jeopardy of oblivion. I’m not down for even the thought of that, so I defend myself from the secret – to the death!

I think I fear knowing in most situations more than I fear not knowing. Perhaps I defend the secret because my intention is to be unaware.

Who Defends the Secret?

With secrets, I create and sustain a persona of unawareness in which I experience a sense of me rather than me. I am who I imagine myself to be.

Even when experiences are hard to bear, I’d rather defend a known reality than to seek an unknown alternative. Thus, my limited awareness further limits my awareness.

Perhaps when the fundamental secret is revealed, I’ll discover that it is my intention to limit my awareness by defending the secret.

Memory as a Messenger of the Unknown

What if, within my limited awareness bubble, memory works in time and space? A conscious agent uses memory as a vehicle to perceive a relationship between time and space. If so, I must defend time and space in order to live. The “I” that lives in time must store the data necessary to balance the unknown with the known – memory.

Now seems to be the only condition of time that allows me to be served by memory. Memory’s linear design is a means of holding time accountable to space and for me to be accountable to a future I haven’t yet realized. Time supports space that supports time. Memory supports the concept of linear time and space as imagined sequences of causes and effects.

What I can perceive I can believe is real. Therefore, my memories are real because I perceive them to be. I’ve perceived fear as real and I have referred to it for present experiential support. Fear as the main criteria of my memory now seems to dominate the experiences of the present. Once I believe fear is real, it will remain so until I question and change it.

Because the unknown represents my greatest fear, I create memories to fill-in what I don’t know. With memory, I can relate the unknowable to an imagined known, a reality I call my life. This known reality brings a counter-balance and a sense of direction to mitigate the fear of the unknown.

What Is the Message of Memory, then?

Memories are my link to linear reality, which includes time and space and who I am in them. In my limited matrix of associations, I can apply a memory to justify any current situation that exists in terms of time and space.

When it comes to fearful situations, applying a known in the form of a memory can provide a sense of reality. Thus, an imagined or recalled known can substitute a sense of peace to the unknown. It’s a paradox! And while the unknown remains unknown, at least I can feel better about it!

What if memory is a messenger of the unknown telling me about me through the known? Perhaps memory is loaded with data. I can mine that information about who I perceive I am beyond what I know. What is my memory telling the known me about the unknown me?

Rather than defend against the unknown with fear-based memory, what if I instead asked some questions?

  • What is true and untrue in this memory?
  • How is it true and untrue?
  • Why is it true and untrue?
  • Who am I as a result of believing this?
  • Who would I be if I didn’t believe this?
