New Consciousness

This article was written by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke on November 30, -0001

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.

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.
