Thoughts have mass. Infact, you can call states of consciousness as states of emotions – this entirely depends on the vibrational level –
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
– Albert Einstein. ((By the way, this quote, whether written by Einstein or not, perfectly corresponds to the law of conservation of energy. That is pretty much the point the writer is making. It all comes down to energy, and levels of energetic vibration – waves. Wave frequency.)
I believe it is this phenomenon of thought that – having mass, and falling into the material world – can be calculated. Scientific endeavors such as phenomenology are inevitably leading towards a calculation of states of consciousness.
Energy is Consciousness.
Dr. David R. Hawkins s an internationally renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher, and pioneer in the fields of consciousness. He’s already starting to think along these lines and I find him uncannily insightful.
Awareness however – is something else entirely, and one of the best descriptions that come to mind is –
“It was a marvelous morning and you could have walked on endlessly, never feeling the steep hills. There was a perfume in the air, clear and strong. There was no one on that path, coming down or going up. You were alone with those dark pines and the rushing waters. The sky was that astonishing blue that only the mountains have. You looked at it through leaves and the straight pines. There was no one to talk to and there was no chattering of the mind. A magpie, white and black, flew by, disappearing into the woods. The path led away from the noisy stream and the silence was absolute. It wasn’t the silence after the noise; it wasn’t the silence that comes with the setting of the sun, nor that silence when the mind dies down. It wasn’t the silence of museums and churches but something totally unrelated to time and space. It wasn’t the silence that mind makes for itself. The sun was hot and the shadows were pleasant.
He only discovered recently that there was not a single thought during these long walks, in the crowded streets or on the solitary paths. Ever since he was a boy it had been like that, no thought entered his mind. He was watching and listening and nothing else. Thought with its associations never arose. There was no image-making. One day he was suddenly aware how extraordinary it was; he attempted often to think but no thought would come. On these walks, with people or without them, any movement of thought was absent. This is to be alone.”
– J Krishnamurthi.
When there is no thought happening in your mind – then WHAT do you measure? Does that mean the person is dead? 😀 THAT, is awareness.
In Gnosis, it is known as Silent Knowledge. In the Bagavad Gita, it is known as the Unborn, or Unknowable. In Toltec Shamanism, it is known as sobriety – but Toltec Shamanism is quite intricate and in-depth about that. So on, and so forth… In Christianity, it is known as the holy spirit.
In other words – your heart has no voice. It speaks to you without a voice. It is an intimate relationship that happens in secret to all of us
It is the source of the word – Spirit, uality.
Awareness is also known as Dharma.
None of these religions are true. It is simply perennial…. 🙂
Consciousness pops in and out.
Consciousness has birth and death.
It is awareness that is ever PRESENT.
And I am an athiest.
God does not exist. What else do you think “Unborn” means. 😀
What is then this pure awareness or spirit or unborn or dharma?
What do you call it?
But he does not exist.
God is unborn.
I believe the Universe is NOT Random, and I am an athiest!
I just think of how funny it would be if I posted that in an athiest forum!
Haha, I should
I’ll get kicked out, but I should!
To penetrate the essence of any one thing illuminates the essence of all things.
Because there is only one heart. There only ever was one heart. One heart, countless minds.
This is why man feels alone – because there is only one. Only you.
“Language… has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.”
– Paul Tillich.
Behold, for the Goddess sends you out into the pits of despair, so that you may realize her everlasting beauty. All things worth having, have tests.
“Wait on, Wait on, beloved innocent, for I am the goddess who knows your secret heart, and I will surely give you everything you want, and more.”
– Salman Rushdie.
