Micheal, your 'God' conciousness is the closest thing your mind can understand to what it means to communicate with the higher self.
I could go into some religious waffle about how God (in the literal sense) exists within all of us, but i try to explain things in a way that would
not seem overly dogmatic or so full of context - as my higher self warned me not to - even though often it seems an easier method of doing
I am well aware of the particular vices others feel when looking upon this line of deep introspection, and from a psychological angle i understand
these vices even better - one could assume that this 'communication' is actually a form of schizophrenia, and as such i am always wary of others
when i speak of things that could be perceived to have no basis for saying.
Recently, i have referred to the higher self as my subconcious mind, as i feel this is a rather adequate way of explaining where my various intuitions
and insights come from, or at least i feel others can accept it better.
It is well known that humans beings utilise a pitiful amount of their brain's true capabilities - and i feel that the subconcious mind represents a
sizable chunk (say, anywhere between 10% - 20%) of the mind that is not the normal conciousness.
In a sense, your subconcious mind (or the higher self, if you will) is many times more powerful than the concious (known self), and as we have no real
appreciation of what it means to be more powerful intellectually, those that become aware of this vast and unknown depth of the mind at a young age
tend to label this as the only thing they/we understand to be truly powerful (God).
As for the 'communication', it's not really like communication at all really, is it?
I'd say it was like speaking to yourself, only the yourself you are speaking to holds a vast amount of wisdom and complexity, and as such can only
answer instead of asking - it cannot come down to your level of understanding until you enter the first stages of 'awakening'* (as in, you become
aware that the 'God' you refer to is inside your own mind).
Then again, perhaps it is God, speaking directly into the minds of the receptive.
All i know is what i was told - When asked "What part of me are you?", my subconcious/higher-self responded with "Something you will become, if
you simply choose it" (with rather a large amount of hesitation, i might add, perhaps the question was quite a good one).
For those of you who are doubtful of everything i have said - allow me to provide an exercise for you to fulfill, although by no means do you have to
do anything i say.
Each of us holds a question that drives us from the very root of our being - For some people it is a simple one, such as "What am i?" or "Who am
For others it can be complex, involving academic theory such as "Would this work if 'A' was not present?" or "If i were to apply myself like so,
what would it acheive?".
For few (or many, in this day and age..), it can be a terrifying glimpse into tragedy, like "Why do people hurt each other?" or "What caused this
I'll say one thing, it doesn't matter what the question is, as long as you want to know the answer.
I want you to find this question, this thing that you feel is important for you to know, and in the purposes of the exercise, i want you to ask
At no point do you seek out exterior help, this is not an assessment of ability, nor is it a pop-quiz with a prize for the winner.
In this game, there can be only one winner - You.
To all intents an purposes, You are the only person asking Yourself to figure out the answer.
If you feel you cannot answer the question any further than 'I don't know', you're being too hard on yourself for the purpose of proving this
exercise wrong - and therefore ignoring the parameters of the exercise; You are not asking a question you want to know the answer to, you are asking a
question you already know the answer to.
In asking "What shapes modern society", the answer "I don't know" is as much of an answer as "Many things, but most importantly among all is
No question is foolish, as after all, we can never truly learn if we do not ask questions.
I guess you could say that this could be considered an introduction to meditative thought if perceived in such a way...
It may be the case that many posters on ATS are already aware of many of the things i have commented on in this particular post, and for the benefit
of those people - You'll forgive me if i'm not embarressed, if not feel free to poke holes and the like.
An example of this exercise in real life that can be compared to it could be considered to be the deep thinkings of a talented mathematician, as he
works his way through a complex and difficult problem.
As i said before, by no means do you have to follow this exercise - some of you will have ignored everything i have said, and many will probably have
circumnavigated this entire thread.
And p.s; SpeakerofTruth, there is no evidence Greys are "Evil" by human standards - they may be so unspeakably evil that we have no real
comprehension of what they are capable of, due to various failings in human language.
The same could be applied to "Good" Aliens.
EDIT: *the "Awakening" process is not to be confused with any media portrayels such as the "Quickening" in highlander or anything like that.
In this instance, i speak of the "Awakening" as a stage in which you become truly aware of your environment - you detect things that you didn't
notice before, in otherwords.
