B.   ON CONSCIOUSNESS

 

1   Man is differently conscious.  It is the moment's sphere of consciousness that makes him talk about a subject matter.

 

2   The worthy consciousness to dwell in is the objective consciousness.  All other mechanical and habitual consciousness are but subjective drops that arise accidentally.  You cannot avoid them even for a second.

 

3   That consciousness which is directed outwards into the First World and seldom directed inwards into the Second World is the consciousness of the extrovert.  That consciousness which is directed inward into the Second World and forms the Third World is the consciousness of the introvert.  The consciousness of the mechanical men is either inward or outward, the two directions cannot exist at once.  It is either/or.  It is dualist in nature.  But both can still occur mechanically.

 

4   Experience is a result of consciousness remembering its own historical-psychological path.  Consciousness is capable of remembering its own passage and goes back into the past by bringing the past into the present as its conscious subject matter.

 

5   When there is esoteric consciousness for man on earth in a certain historical period, there is a possibility of esoteric groups.  As the group grows in size, it gradually loses its esotericity.  Its decline begins as soon as it organizes.  This would rapidly turn into a Confusion of the Tongue.

 

6   Hidden behind one ray of consciousness there may be another and so on and so forth.  Unless consciousness in the flesh of man is raised to a very high level, the real world can never be known even if there existed many books and creations done by the conscious man of the past.

 

7   They are in the consciousness and the states; they also have not yet pass through other states; that is why they cannot recognize the states and produce the states which they are not.  Every state for them is chance presence and it only happens by itself; and chance contact of the state with another different state, they cannot understand it but however they can sense the difference vaguely.

 

8   The table of the states of consciousness is shown below:

Between sleep and awake there is a preparatory period or transition period.  In real sleep, the passenger, the coachman, the horse and the carriage are truly asleep and do not communicate with one another.  When waking-up is about to happen, one of the four bodies begins to be active.  It begins to establish contacts and communicate with the other bodies.  Gradually two bodies become active, then three and finally four.  And we are ready to wake-up.  This preparatory period may take from 5 to 15 minutes in normal case.  Sleep-awake (5-15 minutes).

In practice, before one wakes up one must really allow the preparatory work to begin.  Do not hurriedly jump out from the bed.  Spend some time, for this preparatory work.  Make slow movements first, for all the four bodies, then bigger movements, etc.  And finally, wake-up.

9   The Seven-Cycles of Consciousness per day:  There are four main states of consciousness but they occur in cycles for an ordinary man as well as the higher man within a day.  Sleep Awake cycle with brief excursion to the level of Self-Consciousness occurs mainly for ordinary man within a diurnal day with the sleep state mostly at night and the sleep-wake state during the day.  The state of self-consciousness occurs only occasionally when there is a danger or when a person is gripped by fear.

Objective-consciousness occurs only for higher man who has gone through conscious labor and intentional suffering or the WORK.  Only he is able to maintain this higher state for more hours during his diurnal day when compared to ordinary man.

10   In mental culture, it is the Conscious-I which leads and guides the knowledge (Jana).  Objective consciousness cannot be retained for long if the physical body is not healthy.

 

11   The consciousness of an individual man is however only one drop of all the scattered consciousness in the body of our Most Respected Universe.  The universe's upper department expects us to do the job well there.
