DETAILED EXAMINATION OF CONSCIOUSNESS
What is the difference between God, Christ, Cosmic, Buddhic and Krishnic consciousness?
We have seen in previous Excerpts that vibration acting upon what is called the "Ether" or Einstein's "fabric of space", causes a polarization, which is a condition of opposites. One pole is pure energy without motion. The other pole is pure energy (the same energy) at maximum vibration or motion. Because the negative pole (void) appears to be first in order, it is called the First dimension. The other pole because of its relationship to the First pole becomes a second place or dimension which is contained by the first. Because of this duality we call it the Second dimension.
Please note that the Second dimension is CONTAINED by the First dimension. This means that the Primordial 2D as a polar opposite is contained in the center or inside of (be it infinite or finite) the Primordial 1D! This is important because it sets the precedence for unipolar (or mono-polar) construction. (I have reason to believe that this is somehow the key to faster than light travel and anti-gravitational properties most probably found in "UFO's", should they physically exist in this time line. Although this is pure speculation at this time and outside the scope of this Course, I mention it as a matter of record for possible future works.)
If you will examine this place with me you will see that the primordial 2D is a place of endless white light without any distinguishing features. Although we have identified it as the primordial Christ, it is static and without love (which is shared bliss) because it is completely self contained. It exists in a pure state of "Self" without any concept of something outside of itself. The lack of reflected replicated selves removes the characteristic magnetic attraction that would normally identify this as a place or property of what is loosely termed the Christ Principle. (It should be mentioned that "love" is found in this primordial state as a pure potential, and as an irresistible desire to create!)
This place, upon closer examination, is everything we identify as Nirvana (Seventh Heaven) and the apex of Buddhic consciousness! While this may seem strange and paradoxical at first, it is completely understandable given the fact that ALL facets of consciousness and created form are derived from the same primordial substance. The myriad differences that arrive from this cosmic womb are all simply unique combinations of the original. Knowing this takes much of the mystery out of the equation, but after all this is what we are attempting to accomplish isn't it? (Remember that the Primordial white light state "exists" in our "now" and in our "space", and is accessible within our being at any time via the correct combination of viewpoints.)
The above brings up an interesting point! If the Primordial 2D is the original Christ, then how could it also be Nirvana or Buddhic consciousness? Does this mean that they are the same?
They are in a sense the same, but in a larger and more fundamentally important sense, they are completely different! It is this difference that we will now examine. Stated as simply as possible, Christ consciousness exhibits a condition of permanence when achieved as a result of the ACCUMULATION and CENTRALIZATION of consciousness, while achieving complete detachment from the separate constituent parts and levels of consciousness within ITSELF. In other words, Christ consciousness is a completeness beyond the accumulated parts, but is always experienced from WITHIN the nature of this consciousness as internal beingness, or Divine Self, called the Christ Principle.
When we contrast the above with Buddhic consciousness we find we are dealing with the same place and the same nature of consciousness, but from the OUTSIDE! Furthermore and most importantly, Buddhic consciousness is achieved through detachment, and not accumulation, of the separate constituent parts and levels of consciousness found within the Christ Principle. The accumulation is inadvertent because of upward (vibratory) motion through the structure of consciousness (a result of consecutive detachment and discardment of lower vibratory levels of existence) within a human being and as a consequence, ultimately becoming subjected to a self induced state of simulated nonexistence so devastating that it forces a simultaneous and inadvertent accumulation of the separate constituent parts and levels of consciousness within form, called the "Sagittarius Principle". It is then that a temporary state of white light and Primordial Christ consciousness is subsequently experienced. This achievement is TEMPORARY because of the forward motion that has been set into effect in achieving it, a result of the nature and methods used to achieve Buddhic consciousness. It is this temporariness and non-centralized consciousness (bliss rather than love) that is characteristic of Buddhic consciousness.
In the next Excerpt we will examine Krishnic consciousness.
