These Journeys are Consciousness Journeys…What does that mean?
As human individuals, we each have a consciousness–that is, we each understand and express ourselves with and through an individual intelligence. You might call this individual intelligence the sum total of each person’s memories, experiences, emotions, perceptions, unconscious, subconscious, and super-conscious mind.
This intelligence that comes through us as individuals is, and is connected to, the total Intelligence of Life–Infinite Intelligence (All of Life, All that IS, or, as some call it–God).
Human individuals can learn to identify their individual intelligence with Infinite Intelligence.
As an individual increases their own awareness and understanding of their personal connection to Infinite Intelligence (as, for example, through these Journeys), their consciousness expands.
Individual consciousness can expand infinitely because of its Oneness with Infinite Intelligence. As human beings, we must also learn to express Infinite Intelligence through our thoughts, personalities, and actions. Unifying individual intelligence with Infinite Intelligence is the process of evolving consciousness.
Consciousness Journeys are a tool to assist each person’s individual consciousness to expand to Know itself as Infinite Intelligence. The more steps a person takes, the more consciously connected he or she becomes with Infinite Intelligence, the more consciously he or she can embody Infinite Intelligence in daily activities. The “level” of consciousness can be self-observed through the degree to which Infinite Intelligence is embodied and expressed: Spiritual Consciousness is lived in and through the body, in and through daily interactions and activities.
These Journeys are not to convince people to believe in any religion or spiritual path. Rather, they are intended to encourage people to explore their inner Selves, find their own answers, and share their experiences with others. I encourage you to adapt the Guiding Thoughts to suit your style, or to find your own Guiding Thoughts in poetry, scripture, or ancient wisdom. By doing the Journeys myself, a pathway of consciousness is opened for others.
