Unity consciousness comes after understanding the nature of oneness.
It comes after making the small (or huge!) and necessary adjustments to our inner perspective, in order to begin to witness our unconscious beliefs in duality, and rise above them.
It comes after doing this consistently, recognizing the illusion in waking and sleeping life.
Unity consciousness expands this knowing into feeling, and experiences of oneness, in ways that would currently be deemed unbelievable! It is when our single, localized point of perspective ceases to exist and we can experience life from the perspective of another, as limitations of time and place are no longer there.
But unity consciousness does mean continuing to exist here, on Earth. I think some people envisage ‘ascending’ into Unity Consciousness as us somehow leaving this planet, but I believe we will all bring this level of existence here.
So it has to begin here, within each one of us
In order to explain further, here is one of the best illustrations that I have come across, from the ‘A Speaks’ series:
Everything that you think is real, right from the stars in the sky to your very own body, is all made up of atoms. This you probably know. You probably also know that these atoms are made up of subatomic particles. But what you might not have known is that sub-atomic particles are not really particles. Not in the way you might imagine a particles to be. They are not very small little balls or building blocks. No, they are, actually nothing more than patterns in the background energy. You can imagine, if you like that there is a sea of infinite energy and in that sea, a little eddy forms. The pattern of that eddy becomes stable and does not simply fade away when it interacts with another eddy that has a complementary pattern. And so the two patterns dance together for a while. And there you are with your finest scientific equipment, and you look at this dance and instead of seeing a romance between two patterns of energy, you think you are looking at a particle – perhaps a proton – inside an atom. But I hope you have noticed the important part of this tale. This was the fact that those particles – in fact all particles in the whole universe – are all composed of patterns in the same one infinite, universal energy field. You see: ONE energy field makes up everything in your whole universe. This means that EVERYTHING that you think is real is actually just patterns and variations in the same one energy”.
It is at the macro and the micro levels – at the infinitely large, and the infinitely small places that this truth of oneness is starting to become visible, as this is where the illusion of duality and separation is breaking down. Incredibly, we are living through the moments on Earth, when this is now being realized by science, through the study of Birkeland currents (at the macro scale), and through quantum theory (at the micro scale).
In the ordinary scale and activity of everyday life, our state of oneness with infinite consciousness seems largely invisible, instead replaced by separation. But still, we are each made up of a few ripples in that singular blanket of energy, so our feelings, thoughts and actions continue to create patterns, which affect the whole, whether or not we are aware.
Beginning to get a grasp of the concept of infinite consciousness, and the origin of creation is one thing, and it does take time and adjustment. But unity consciousness exists a few steps further on.
