cosmic consciousness

A Quote by Sri Aurobindo on cosmic consciousness, supermind, and transcendence

We can arrive at a point of view where the preservation of the individual activities is no longer inconsistent with our comprehension of the cosmic consciousness or our attainment to the transcendent and supracosmic.

Sri Aurobindo

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on seed, diversity, potential, flowers, fruits, cosmic consciousness, universe, real, and unreal

In the seed there is nothing but the seed - no diversity. At the same time there is the notion of potential diversity [of flowers, fruits] supposedly present in the seed. Even so, cosmic consciousness is one, devoid of diversity; yet the universe of diversity is said to exist only in notion.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on soul, cosmic consciousness, unity, life, wisdom, and beauty

We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related, the eternal ONE. And this deep power in which we exist and whose beatitude is all accessible to us, is not only self-sufficing and perfect in every hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject and the object, are one. We see the world piece by piece, as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole, of which these are shining parts, is the soul.

A Quote by Richard Maurice Bucke on cosmic consciousness

Chapter 26  

Born 1840. Entered Cosmic Consciousness in 1872, at the age of thirty-two years. Was a member of a Presbyterian Church in good standing. Upon illumination left the church and has had no connection with any similar organization since. Was always an earnest,, thoughtful man. "In 1872 [an informant says] his friends thought for a time that he was becoming insane. He passed through a grave spiritual crisis, the exact nature of which is not known to me. Whatever it was, to all appearance passed over, and he has been ever since not only sane but exceptionally intelligent and right-minded. He is the best read Emerson scholar that I know. In all his home relations-by wife, children and friends-he is greatly beloved. He has a positive certainty of individual immortality. He is a very modest man, but has a certain air or manner which impresses those who meet him that he (being a mere clerk) is a richer man that his millionaire employers, and that he knows it"

The life is not in believing there is a divinity somewhere, but in knowing it. To know the Word of the Truth, and to have its spirit generated in the mind and heart, is to have its pure offspring-its Son­-begotten within, consciously crying "Father" with certitude.

This reveals the boundless radiance of the infinite face of the real Divinity, beaming on him who sees it its equipoise of "Mercy and Truth"[132:75].
