    Higher Consciousness, Christ Consciousness and Jesus I received an email from a reader questioning people 's ability to connect with higher consciousness and claiming that I have yet to be mentored by the true God--Jesus Christ. "You claim to teach the secrets of the soul, success, "finding oneself," ascension, etc. I believe you 've left out an important step and have yet to be mentored by the true God; you only promote the self-god of new age. How can I tell? Because if you had met Him, you would speak of Him and tell others of His glory. We can only rise so far in our own wisdom and that 's due to a pre-existing and self-perfected curse...the very crux of mankind 's disconnect. It 's called sin, and the solution to this sin-curse is remedied…

  • Upanishad Vs Gita

    In the first few pages of the Upanishad we came to understand. The state of meditation translate a migration from a low spiritual altitude to a higher one in search of the Self and the Atman soul within, lost between the daily struggles of life , envy, and the ego.

  • Examples Of Mind Body Dualism

    One of these objections is the assertion that life and consciousness cannot be explained by atomism, that pebbles do not laugh or organisms in test tubes do not live or introspect. Is this prospect of consciousness aside from atomism true, though? Materialism relative to individuals focuses mainly on brain states being identical with mental states or sensations.

  • Compare And Contrast Searle And Descartes

    Descartes’ position, and begins to outline the framework of his own conclusion. Searle asks of the reader to grant him just two features of consciousness, (1) that consciousness is caused by processes in the brain and (2) that conscious states are higher-level features of the brain, both of which have been narrowed down and proven by science. These two propositions provide the foundation of Searle’s conclusion, biological naturalism, and his refutation of dualism. If those two propositions are…
