CONSCIOUSNESS

‘Consciousness is defined in two ways:

  • Our state of consciousness when awake, dreaming or deep sleeping.
  • The quality of our character, and our state of spiritual awareness.

There are three aspects of consciousness that need to be appreciated in relation to the quality of our character and our state of spiritual awareness:

  • Our monadic consciousness, which is our supreme consciousness.
  • Our egoic consciousness, which is the consciousness of our individuality, governed by the higher aspect of our ego.
  • Our personality consciousness, limited to the lower aspect of our ego.’

CHARLES REITHER – THEOSOPHY

An excerpt from Charles Reither’s book ‘From Religion to Spirituality’:

“Theosophy is simply a composite name given to the body of teachings that stem from the most ancient Indian (Vedas) and Tibetan esoteric teachings that are thousands of years old; and which establish and describe the highest concept of creation to which we give the name of God, for want of a better word; and our relationship to and understanding of that god. And, what we call the truth is simply the highest concept that we can have of the creative process that we human beings, limited by our consciousness, can accommodate at the stage of our spiritual development and evolutionary progress.”
