Sunday, April 3, on the Nation Geographic Channel, The Story of God with Morgan Freeman will be televised. It will be interesting to see what they say. As times change, people change… human mentality changes. We all share one group consciousness, though it changes in hue, texture, content and form as we traverse the globe, as well as through time. How that group consciousness interfaces with information is called ‘knowledge’.
As Jane Wagner put it, “Reality is a collective hunch.” That is why existence of our universe is called “relativity”, the field of relativity. The Transcendent, the Unified Field, Pure Is-ness, Pure Consciousness, the Absolute (call it what you will) is not of relativity. But we view it from the world of relativity. The tendency is to cling to a relative perspective of the Absolute and call that ‘Truth’. In my college years I called that a ‘clarity trip’. The history of humanity can be viewed as the history of ‘clarity trips’.
As one’s awareness becomes free from identity with clarity trips, one gains the ability to see beyond the horizon. In so doing, we do not reject or belittle clarity trips, but we do come to understand, honor, and appreciate them in a new way. Each clarity trip reaches out to the ungraspable, the Absolute, from a unique angle. In time, everything comes together within you. It is as if all the clarity trips, all the unlimited number of realities come together and crystalize (gelatinize) into a unified whole. At that time, the Absolute is experienced as the Self, as well as the backdrop to all relative existence.
