There’s a definition of consciousness that I’ve been taught, and it feels like the clearest definition I have found even though it falls completely short of what I want to know about consciousness.
Consciousness is cognizant and luminance; awareness and illumination itself.
It’s a great base to begin with and it feels as real as we can know from what we know until we know what we know from going in and doing the work of introspection, calming the mind, sharpening the focus, and asking the questions as we explore the nature of consciousness.
All of the ideas in this issue are shared here to assist you and myself in knowing the questions for ourself as an experience.
To curiosity and desire to awaken, Emeric Damian Thorpe
The journey into the radical experience of being alive, of experiencing more of life itself, of the discovery of a dream, of a life to explore, of a masterpiece to create, of being a movement toward an understanding of our existence, a play in the world that gives us the opportunity to express the fullness of our desires, to be free to play and tease out the experience of life as we desire.
You are the guardian of your story, and both of it and in it.
