Less understood is the concept that a single drop contains the Ocean
A Plain English discussion and synthesis of the states of human consciousness - streams of consciousness
which include higher consciousness, cosmic consciousness, collective consciousness, enlightenment, mindfulness, and
The Essence of All Be-ing
- Consciousness can be defined as -
• the self awareness, inner sensibility or cognisance
of the processing of one's own existence -
• the aggregate, collective or Unified Field of the interplay
of all of the energies which make up all life.
The paradigm that consciousness may exist independently of the physical body is often widely
disputed from all sides and often ridiculed. It may sometimes be tolerated under the label of religious freedom, but
virtually all branches of science are evolving in the opposite direction: explaining out soul and Spirit.
Yet, there can be a synthesis or common ground where, by removing the seeming discrepancies and
limitations in the words and languages used by science, mysticism, spirituality and religion, it can be seen that
Universal Consciousness is the interweaving thread - the tantra -
a bridge which joins all forms of human endeavour with all and, with all states and forms of sentient and non-sentient
This Universal Consciousness is
• the Essence of Who We are
• and the Synthesis of Life itself.
In this web-site, we have used the term LifeStreams to bypass the preconceptions which can arise and
create divisions in thought and understanding - hopefully creating a map of Universal Consciousness which can be
followed without the need for the technicalities and special nomenclatures of fields of knowledge and experience that
may be accessible only to people with special training.
Within these Life Streams, patterns can be found which directly influence mental and physical health - and all
interpersonal relationships. They are the sources of conscious and unconscious programs and beliefs that govern life
leading to stress, conflict, addictions, medical and psychological diseases.
Yet, these same LifeStreams have a commonality to all of the senses used by all of man-kind. Thus, the material on this
site bridges physics and metaphysics.
