What Is Universal Mind / Universal Consciousness?
It comes from the Vedas.
Rig Veda is the oldest of the Vedas, written in Sanskrit around 1500 BC.
What is universal mind / universal consciousness?
The way we view this depends on our understanding – or misunderstanding. 😀
It is something we all have in common. Pure consciousness.
We may think of it as God, nature, universal principle, something we can tap into or … what we are.
It always comes down to non-duality – indivisible pure consciousness.
The source of inspiration is something external, and that is a duality.
Silent oneness is non-duality.
We cannot intellectualise pure consciousness as it is beyond concepts. If we conceptualise the word ‘source’, it becomes a manufactured thing, an idea. That is the universal trap. To go beyond, we must let go of preconceived ideas.
Ordinary consciousness is the source of every thing; it is a conduit, a go-between, a middle-man to realising emptiness. Or, through intellectualisation, it becomes a blockage in the pipes!
Pure/empty consciousness is indescribable and unfathomable,
but alive with knowledge/wisdom as needed.
