I’m beginning to see the tie-in between divine qualities, states of consciousness, and contexts.
They’re different words pointing at the same thing.
I’ve experienced mastery, abundance, and peace, which are divine qualities, as states of consciousness.
They were expansive, transformative – certainly higher states than ordinary consciousness.
Werner Erhard calls the same phenomenon a “context,” something that includes and involves everything. Health and peace are examples of contexts. I experienced the states of consciousness as contexts as well.
Love is an example of a divine quality (1) which is a state of consciousness and a context. I know that for a certainty.
It may turn out that claiming my divine authority is also a state of consciousness and a context. I’m in the process of finding out.
How do I know something is all three – a divine quality, state of consciousness, and context?
By the transformative impact living in that state of consciousness has on me. Take love for instance.
When I’m in the experience of higher-dimensional love, I’m a completely-different person. It’d be as if I were in constant orgasm. Bliss, bliss, bliss, if only it would be everlasting (and it will be someday).
I notice that, with the experience of every other state of consciousness (mastery, abundance, etc.), I ended up in transformative love. I expect to end up in transformative love when I experience my divine authority as well.
I get glimpses. These present to me as a rock-solid confidence. In other words, just as I experienced purity and innocence while gazing on the Self, so also here I experience rock-solid certainty and confidence while “feeling” or glimpsing my divine authority.
Because you and I are divine, right? So it isn’t as if we’re feeling into illusion. We’re feeling into the truth of our divinity, which needs to be settled with us before we experience our authority.
(Concluded in Part 2, tomorrow.)
(1) Apparently it’s actually more than a divine quality; it is the Divine. I haven’t experienced the truth of that statement yet.
For convenience only I include it among the qualities.
