New Consciousness

This article was written by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke on November 30, -0001
posted under New Consciousness

In just the last few decades, there has been a whole new perception of the sub-conscious mind as a resource of considerable power, and a realization that “consciousness” itself is bigger, older, and more fundamental than previously perceived.

Consciousness is even more elemental than Energy and Matter and extends throughout Time and Space. Modern science, and in particular quantum physics and what we now dare to call "new age psychology" along with paranormal studies, have restored balance to our cosmology. We see Life and Consciousness as universal and limitless.

We are evolving into a new relationship between different levels of personal and extended consciousness with the conscious mind as manager able to call upon the resources of the extended range of consciousness to tap into memories, knowledge and perceptions. The new relationship is a two-way communication with the conscious mind calling up specified content from the sub-conscious, the collective unconscious, and the greater universal consciousness, and using nearly forgotten psychic powers to expand awareness beyond the limitations of the physical senses.

The divisions between the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind are becoming less substantial and are merging towards Wholeness, with the conscious mind functioning more like a Managing Director and the sub-conscious as a Director of Resources. While the conscious mind is still the functional director, the relationship to the sub-conscious is becoming more one of interactive teamwork than previously.

Evolution for humanity is continuing and accelerating. It is driven by purpose and meaning, and not only by chance and Darwinian natural selection. Evolution is not founded in biology but in consciousness, and continues to build upon a long-ago "programming" for which no end is in sight.
