Deepak Chopra defines cosmic consciousness very succinctly:
In cosmic consciousness the psyche or individual consciousness expands to a cosmic or universal level. The small personality with its identification with the body, the mind and relationships makes a radical shift so that the self now identifies with the non-local, timeless existence of the cosmos. So it is called cosmic consciousness. —Deepak Chopra
Walter Russell expands on the topic — and more — in the “QUESTIONS ANSWERED” part of his book THE MESSAGES OF THE DIVINE ILIAD.
Q. Did Jesus know all things? I mean by that, did He have omniscience?
A. Yes, He did have omniscience. He was undoubtedly the only man who had known complete Cosmic Consciousness.
Q. Can a cosmic conscious man see Jesus as a person?
A. No one has ever seen the Person of Jesus-or Beethoven-or you. The body alone can be seen and the Person alone can be known.
Q. Are Jesus and God the same?
A. Yes, they are One-and so are you One with God when you know that you are.
Q. What is the Soul?
A. Soul is the desire force in Mind, the will to extend desire from the Light to manifest the Light
Q. How does desire manifest itself?
A. Without desire, the seed would not germinate into form. The Soul centers the seed in the pattern of desire to express form. The seed records the pattern of the body as it changes throughout eternity. The
record changes according to the desire of the Soul-will to become a different body.
Q. Could you give an example?
A. Yes. The pattern of a tree in Maine where the winds blow hard is recorded in the seed of that tree. The same ruggedness of pattern will be recorded in the seed and repeated as the same kind of tree when the seed again unfolds.
Q. Your statement that trees have Souls as well as human beings is rather extraordinary. Would you explain it further?
A. The Soul is universal in all things. It does not belong to man alone. God is Light. The Soul is DESIRE in the Light. It might also be termed the WILL.
Q. How does animal life differ from vegetable and mineral life?
A. What you call animal life is not rooted to earth. It has entirely different bodies which must interchange in order to continue. The vegetable kingdom is rooted to earth. The mineral kingdom is the earth itself.
All of these function alike. They all begin and end in the same way.
Q. What are their relations to each other? Which comes first?
A. The mineral kingdom comes first-the planet is all mineral until sufficiently cooled by the coming of water. Interchange between water and minerals begets the vegetable kingdom.
Interchange between the vegetable and mineral kingdoms begets the animal kingdom. Each of these three depends upon each other or survival. Each is an extension of the other.
I marvel at the depth and height of Russell’s understanding. A man who truly tapped the secrets of the universe and articulated the simple truth of it all.
I will end this series at this point to explore some of the profound perspectives and transcendent vision of Hugh Malafry as shared in his landmark and timely novel The Light at Lindisfarne. So, until next post,
Be Love. Be loved.
