Ode to Sensory Deprivation: 4

There have been  previous odes to sensory deprivation all filed in the inner sense category.

Now it is time for a quote from one of the true messengers of The Light (no time to go into what “The Light” is now). His name was Walter Russell and you owe it to yourself to read his works.

From “The Secret of Light”, there are numerous excellent references in the chapter “Unconsciousness, Sleep and Pain”:

We cannot be unconscious. We have always been conscious without the slightest awareness of it. Our confusion in this respect lies in mistaking sensation and thinking for consciousness. When we stop thinking, whether asleep or awake, we do not stop KNOWING, nor do we cease being consciously aware of our Being.

Conscious Mind does not sleep. Sleep is merely the negative half of the wave cycle of electrical awareness of sensation. Wakefulness is the positive half.

And most importantly:

When the body is in balance, it has no sensation. When the body is unbalanced, sensation informs it when and where, otherwise it could not function.

 We continue to Chapter VII, “Think”:

All mystics describe their revelations as coming to them in flashes of great light. Paul, Buddha, Isaiah, Baha’u’llah and other mystics have vividly described this mental experience to such an extent that in the old days that experience was known as “The Illumination.”

That experience is, in reality, a severance of the cosmic seat of consciousness from the electric seat of sensation. The brain feels that severance electrically as a blinding flash. The consciousness, thus freed from sensation, suddenly becomes cosmically aware of cause instead of being hampered by the sensation of effect. That is what is meant by the biblical statement “And ye shall know all things.”
