Awakening – Leonard Jacobson

Awakening involves crossing a threshold from one level of consciousness to another. There are three levels of consciousness…

The first is the level of mind. At the level of mind, your experience of life is always filtered through the past, and governed by your beliefs. When you are in the mind, the focus is on the past and the future, which are constantly projected onto the present moment. The reality of the present moment is never truly experienced, and the illusions projected by the mind are mistaken for reality.

You spend your whole life trying to solve problems, overcome limitations or heal wounds which are a part of your past and do not exist in the reality of the present moment. Life at the level of mind is the world of Maya. It is a world of illusion.

The second level of consciousness is the level of Presence. This level of consciousness opens within you as you become more fully present. You are focused in the here and now, experiencing the truth and reality of the present moment.

You are free from the bondage of the past. You have no anxiety about the future. You are no longer lost in illusion. Life is lived in freedom and joy. You have become grounded in silence.

The third level of consciousness is the Eternal level. It cannot be defined. It can only be experienced. It opens up at the deeper levels of Presence, and it opens up through grace.

At this level of consciousness, there is no time. Everything is in perfect order and harmony. You are in a state of perfect silence. You experience God, Eternity, Oneness. You are at home in the world of now.

I took the above picture in my garden, however I do not own a copyright to the recording. It belongs to http://www.alanwatts.com. I simply had the good fortune to be able to buy the CD many years ago and it helped me at different times in my life. I’m uploading it in the spirit of sharing, so that those who cannot buy it could benefit as well.
