We Cannot Doubt Consciousness
We may doubt ourselves, but we cannot doubt consciousness.
Our self is a build-up of dogma – a set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true. We are all indoctrinated from childhood, and thus we give our sovereignty away to an authority to rule our life, and those principles becomes our new normal.
It’s done through religion.
There is a reason for all our dilemmas and doubts, and that is religious indoctrination from childhood. Whether we believe in God or not, we are subjected to beautiful Christmas carols, stories, churches, cathedrals, monasteries, hymns, architecture, statues, art, rituals, obedience, ‘good’ and ‘evil’, debate, counter-debate, taking sides, hatred, wars, politics, philosophies – all of which influence our lives by limiting our understanding, and binding us. But we are still charmed by all the complexities that actually cause confusion.
Our self is a build-up of dogma – a set of principles = beliefs. We are all indoctrinated, and thus consciousness only sees through a glass darkly; that becomes our normal.
We wake up when we stop believing in ourselves, or anyone else.
We can doubt ourselves,
but we cannot doubt consciousness.
