What is Cosmic Consciousness? (in 300 words or less)

 

 

by Michael Corthell


“You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.”

You may agree that a coin is one thing or a unit, but that it has a duality, that is, it has a front and a back. And, as in front and back you might also agree that there is no inside without an outside, and no outside without an inside. The reality is that we all are like that in relation to the Universe. Consider this; we are the inside and the entirety of the universe, galaxy after galaxy is the outside. And further, consider that whatever exists everywhere, therefore, is a manifestation of the Divine.

What I have simply outlined is the *sudden awareness of oneness realized when one has a cosmic awakening and has become truly conscious of the ultimate nature of reality, that is to say, had an intellectual revelation of the meaning, purpose, and aliveness of the universe.

*Excerpt: ''Whether long or short in peak duration, these intense psychological shifts in consciousness often lead to long-lasting and even permanent changes to the subject's sense of self and of the world around them (Neumann and Campbell, 1964; Taylor and Egeto-Szabo, 2017), often from an experience of fragmentation of purpose and meaning, to loving engagement with life (Dunnington, 2011). These experiences are therefore considered deeply healing. Some of the cognitive and behavioural shifts linked to these experiences include: increased empathy, compassion, gratitude, openness, trust, altruism, curiosity, awareness, creativity, authenticity, integrity, a sense of higher purpose and meaning in life, a sense of virtuous mission or selfless service towards humanity, a sense of being reborn and liberated from past attitudes and beliefs, a sense of devotion to love-based values, and a rejection of “religiousness” and materialistic lifestyles (Cook, 2004; McClintock et al., 2016; Taylor and Egeto-Szabo, 2017; McGee, 2020). These deep shifts may lead to radical changes in religious and philosophical views, relationships, and career paths (Taylor and Egeto-Szabo, 2017).

Alan Watts Explains What Awakening Means

''This man never ceases to make me think about how I perceive the universe and my place in it. His explanations provide clarity. They are simple but profound. Beautiful. Amazing. Wonderful. His vision is ecocentric. All is One and One is all. Existence is a beautiful, joyous dance.'' 
- Charles Sullivan

Veganism, Albert Einstein and ''The Connected Universe''

"We are spiritually interconnected, part of a unified whole. There are no 'others,' only One, from which all emanates." Michael Corthell Albert Einstein is one of the most famous figures in history. He was a scientist known for his formula, E=MC(2). Einstein was a vegetarian during the last years of his life, although he had supported the idea for a long time. In a letter to Max Kariel he said, "I have always eaten animal flesh with a somewhat guilty conscience," and soon after became a vegetarian. Einstein's famous quote: "Nothing will benefit health or increase chances of survival  on earth as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." and further commenting... ''A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delus
