On being in the world, but not of the world
Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.”
Consciousness is the origin; the source of all that is.
Consciousness is the quality or state of awareness, or, of being aware of an external object or something within oneself. French philosopher René Descartes proposed the notion of “I think, therefore I am” claiming that the act of thinking about one’s existence proves there is someone there to do the thinking. Descartes believed that mind is separate body—there is a mind-body duality—and these interweave in the brain’s pineal gland. I don’t know how Descartes made a case of this. However, today, we are able to determine via scans and scientific inquiry to make a case that humans project their own individualized reality by a complex process that involves everything of the body from the quantum information that is the essence of all matter to the complex brain and even our hearts and gut we may believe play an important part in our consciousness.
