Living From the Super-consciousness
“The Superconscious Mind”
We’re switching from thinking “In Christ-est” living to Living From the Superconscious Mind. So what is the Superconscious Mind? It is the aspect of Mind within us that is equivalent to the Christ Mind. I often affirm “the Christ in me is awakened in me now.” So what we’re doing is the same thing with different wording.
Here is the definition from the Revealing Word:
superconscious mind–a state of consciousness based on true ideas, on an understanding and realization of spiritual Truth (RW 188).
“Where there is no vision the people cast off restraint” (Prov. 29:18). Men must see beyond matter and material possessions, or civilization will perish from the earth. If the superconsciousness, or Christ Mind, is not developed, the people will destroy one another in insane warring for the fleeting things of the world. Preaching the glories of heaven will not reach a mind that has no capacity for the enjoyment of heaven (RW 188).
The connection between the superconscious mind and the conscious mind is established within–by meditation, by going into the silence, and by speaking the word (RW 188).
The superconsciousness is man's only sure guide through the maze of the creative process. By trusting to the infallibility of this guide, man opens himself to the inspiration of the Almighty (RW 188).
Superconsciousness is the goal toward which humanity is working. Regardless of appearances there is an upward trend continually active throughout all creation. The superconsciousness is the realm of divine ideas. Its character is impersonal. It therefore has no personal ambitions; knows no condemnation; but is always pure, innocent, loving, and obedient to the call of God (A 36).
The superconsciousness has been perceived by the spiritually wise in every age, but they have not known how to externalize it and make it an abiding state of consciousness. Jesus accomplished this, and His method is worthy of our adoption, because as far as we know, it is the only method that has been successful. It is set forth in the New Testament, and whoever adopts the life of purity and love and power there exemplified in the experiences of Jesus of Nazareth will, in due course, attain the place that He attained.
In the upcoming weeks we will explore the practical application of the Superconscious Mind. For this week I encourage everyone to contemplate the words above and think about living in their Superconsciousness.
In the abundance of time to study this stuff, I am truly grateful,
