could it then be possible that all things alive and "dead" (dirt, rocks, etc.) are 'conscious' to some degree?
Yet you chose to experience the magnificence of here and now in its every detail and to experience your Divine Self as the here and now creator of that reality. There were only two ways - two fields of experience - in which you could do that. Time and Space. So magnificent was this thought that you literally exploded with delight! In that explosion of delight was created space between the parts of you and the time it took to move from one part of yourself to another. In this way you literally tore yourself apart to look at the pieces of you. You might say that you were so happy, you fell to pieces. You've been picking up the pieces ever since.
Originally posted by squanderedSorry for the disjointed thoughts and confusing imagery. This business of picking up the pieces is what mediation cures. It just is. You expand your senses and have the capacity to expand indefinitely but we stop and cling to our roots. It's enough just to live in the moment.

we were designed to self-correct like the rest of God’s universe.
As I rode this stream of consciousness through the center of the galaxy, the stream was expanding in awesome fractal waves of energy.
I was in the Eye of Creation. I felt as if I was touching the Face of God. It was not a religious feeling. Simply I was at one with Absolute Life and Consciousness. When I say that I could see or perceive forever, I mean that I could experience all of creation generating itself. It was without beginning and without end. That’s a mind expanding thought, isn’t it? Scientists perceive the Big Bang as a single event which created the Universe. I saw during my life after death experience that the Big Bang is only one of an infinite number of Big Bangs creating Universes endlessly and simultaneously. The only images that even come close in human terms would be those created by super computers using fractal geometry equations.
Modern science called this the Big Bang. I was in absolute, pure consciousness. I could see or perceive all the Big Bangs or Yugas creating and recreating themselves. Instantly I entered into them all simultaneously. I saw that each and every little piece of creation has the power to create. It is very difficult to try to explain this. I am still speechless about this.
The Void is the vacuum or nothingness between all physical manifestations. The SPACE between atoms and their components. Modern science has begun to study this space between everything.
The biblical “I am” really has a question mark after it. “I am—What am I?” So creation is God exploring God’s Self through every way imaginable, in an on¬going, infinite exploration through every one of us. I began to see during my near-death experience that everything that is, is the Self, literally, your Self, my Self. Everything is the great Self. That is why God knows even when a leaf falls. That is possible because wherever you are is the center of the universe. Wherever any atom is, that is the center of the universe. There is God in that, and God in the Void.
I was completely out of time and space as we know it. In this expanded state, I discovered that creation is about Absolute Pure Consciousness, or God, coming into the Experience of Life as we know it.
The first part of this quote I experienced but wasn't thinking. In other words I saw this light (the way I illustrated it in the picture I posted), but I wasn't told that everything was made of light. I didn't ask, I wasn't given that answer specifically, I just saw that it was. Funny enough a few posts ago I asked people to give me an opinion on whether or not they thought that maybe even stones were conscious because they are created with/by the great consciousness, therefore should be conscious at some level no matter how minuscule. Seeing that this guy comes to a similar conclusion is interesting. I don't know that either one of us is right, but the fact that he comes out and says so is interesting to me.
Light is living stuff. Everything is made of light, even stones. So everything is alive. Everything is made from the Light of God; everything is very intelligent.
I realized that we are part of a natural living system that recycles itself endlessly. I was never told that I had to come back. I just knew that I would.
Every human has a different life and set of questions to explore. Some of our questions are Universal, but each of us is exploring this thing we call Life in our own unique way. So is every other form of life, from mountains to every leaf on every tree.
And that is very important to the rest of us in this Universe. Because it all contributes to the Big Picture, the fullness of Life. We are literally God exploring God’s self in an infinite Dance of Life. Your uniqueness enhances all of Life.

I don't know how legitimate this man is.
P.M.H. Atwater has the following to say about Mellen-Thomas Benedict: "I can attest that his case is genuine and his claims about the brain tumor and the conditions of his death are true. I have met his mother and step-father, been in his and their homes, and have followed his life since - his struggles and his accomplishments - as he sought to find a way to integrate his experience into his daily life while still honoring the mission he felt guided to fulfill."
* We are all part of a Great Self-- the sum total of all of us and everything that has ever been. * Creation has just begun, and the future is so bright. We've already made it. * There is no plan, there never was. You were given the universe to do what you will. The only meaning to life is what you give it. * Some science fiction luminaries such as Jules Verne and Gene Roddenberry were more accurate in their visions of the future than any psychics or prophets. * In the not too distant future, we'll be able to replicate food, as well as water. We'll no longer need big farms. * In the next 400 years, we'll start "star-seeding" other planets. * 2012 is not the end of the world but a "cosmological signpost." We'll see more meteor showers and cosmic events around this time. * Reincarnation is more real and dynamic than people can imagine.

I was wondering if you were able to talk at length with the universal consciousness about humanity's short and long-term future. I know that we co-create our experience, but were you able to get any insights about where we might be headed?
Originally posted by 2manyquestionsFor those of you who are interested, I'll definitely let you know what happens when it does.

This is nice...
Infinity can only be called unity. There is no reference point to call it anything else.
..From the "law of one". Just letting you know where this trail has been leading me.
