State-of-consciousness is state-of-Life

State-of-consciousness is state-of-life. This expression points to the intimate relationship between consciousness and the reality experienced by the being. We can only react to what we are able to perceive, and reflect about what we know, to the extent of our understanding.

Based on this assumption, our reality could not be a succession of casual occurrences. After all, we begin to see ourselves as co-responsible for the reality around us. Therefore, to transform this reality of life, we must act to change our own consciousness.

But how can a human being act towards the transformation of his consciousness? We do not want to discuss here altered states of consciousness, the use of substances, the practice of exercises, or occult methods. We wish to bring to light the possibility of an intermediary-free contact with the inner source of wisdom that exists in every human being and that incites him/her to search for elevation.

The human being is the bearer of a natural consciousness and a spiritual spark, to which we can be sensitive to a greater or lesser degree. In those who seek spirituality, this sensitivity is active, while in those who are satisfied with a purely material life, this sensitivity has yet to develop. This is a process that will take place throughout the path of each individual's experiences. Transforming consciousness depends on the recognition of this inner source of wisdom. But how does one make contact with this source?

The manifestation and the quality of our biological consciousness is the result of the interaction between several systems or fluids in our organism: the blood fluid, the hormonal fluid, the nervous fluid, the serpentine fire (which corresponds to the spinal cord) and the mental consciousness (which is located in the space behind the frontal bone). This fivefold ensemble is often focused exclusively on outer material life through the senses, aiming towards self-preservation and self-satisfaction. This consciousness is too attached to its own certainties, wills, desires, and fears. The result is an identification with the most diverse aspects of life.

Therefore, before we can talk about transformation in a spiritual sense, it is necessary that a longing for high and transcendent values be born in the consciousness itself. Only the knowledge of the essence of this life can bring about the maturity that will drive the manifestation of this yearning.

When this awakening to the spiritual search finally takes place, all the fluids that make up the consciousness become more receptive to the impulses of the spiritual spark. This initially manifests as a deep nostalgia or dissatisfaction with the direction of things around us. Consequently, the search for new values becomes central, and the consciousness turns to this inner focus of wisdom, taking it as the compass that will guide the consciousness on its spiritual journey.

Thus the transformation of consciousness will culminate in a profound change in the life, perception, and understanding of the now awakened being, to the point where enlightenment can be experienced. Then, he or she will perceive and experience an existence that transcends space and time.

As long as this transformed consciousness can manifest itself in matter, it should assist other seekers to find this inner path, for state-of-consciousness is state-of-life; state-of-life is state-of-the-blood; state-of-the-blood means the resolute deed in purposeful Attitude of Life.
