Default love this movie, lol


i heart huckabees - transcending space and time - YouTube




I've actually had some pretty far out experiences. I rarely share these with others who cannot relate nor understand where I'm coming from, as words somehow fail to convey precise definition w/ those unfamiliar.

4. Rational Consciousness (most adults are at this level - reason things out, but is often only considering one possible line of reason)
5. Vision-Logic Consciousness (Considers multiple possible lines of reason)
6. Psychic Consciousness (Sensing a spiritual energy of self and others, & at times a deeper understanding of past, present & future, by reading energy)
7. Dark Night of the Senses (5 senses no longer are enough, a higher sense is more the focus)
8. Subtle Consciousness (Discovering more spiritual guidance)
9. The Dark Night of the Soul (realizing the hidden/dark parts - bringing subconscious to awareness)
10. Resurrection from the Dark Night (Realizing we are more than the fears/shame we had previously tried to keep dark, now that it all is brought to light, we feel light)
11. Christ Consciousness - The Causal Level (True Christian love, having confronted the humanity in self, one finds compassion for the humanity in all)
12. Nondual Consciousness - Ascension into the Kingdom of Heaven (one with God - so that thoughts, feelings & actions are one with God & better flow with higher/spiritual purpose)
This is good stuff right here. I began the journey myself long ago.

A friend introduced me to this book & I added my thoughts of each stage.

It seems like a never-ending journey, like we never really "arive" - but learn to journey well.
