When we are born I believe we have only the beginnings of a consciousness. We have all the sub conscious mechanisms (for want of a better word) in
place. We grow and slowly we become more and more conscious of everything (ourselves and every body else). That is we develop a conscious response to
Some people encourage this process once they realize they have it. They speed up and extend the development of consciousness. Some can't cope with it
and drown in ignorance and zombie behavior (they want others to do their thinking for them and they are lazy). Such people miss the point of life
which is to grow and develop. Such people have no hope because they think this is all there is (because they never bothered to make inquiries). They
think their existence ends the day they die (may be?)
For me the point of this life is develop my consciousness. I grow and I learn. I extend my scope and perception. I know this is vital and what the
universe wanted me to do and why The Creator put us here. It is the very meaning of our individual existence (there are the other meanings, too, like
having children, etc, but all part of this).
Is it worth while to bother if we are going to just die one day soon, only having a few short years of three score and ten? Yes, because consciousness
transcends death and the individual progresses dimensionally.
Just like the next level of a video game
edit: I live within my conscious mind. I locked the sub conscious away and try to control it. I use that creatively and allow little flows, like the
nutrients a plant gains from the soil.
John Fowles wrote an excellent narrative about this "The Tree". It reflects on the necessity for us to give our sub conscious access to our
consciousness for innovation and creativity's sake; jewels we steal from the night!
