Ascension, the core dynamic of the Universe, can be understood by realizing that the Universe IS consciousness and learning how that consciousness is structured.
The universal ascension process has been discussed throughout the ages, and often misunderstood or over-simplified. Ascension is not about going to some higher “place”, it is about attaining higher levels of consciousness and reintegrating with your higher levels of self, and ultimately fully reintegrating with your highest self, none other than Source consciousness itself.
In this article, I offer my understanding of the universal ascension process gleaned from my studies and insights over the past several years. As always, my articles are simply my perspective that I share in the spirit of discovery and empowerment, take what resonates and leave the rest behind.
“It is toward that state of bonded union with the expanded levels of self that you strive in these times.” — Rasha, Oneness
Ascension is the core dynamic of the Universe. It can only be understood by realizing that the Universe IS consciousness, and learning how that consciousness is structured. Let’s do a quick review.
Everything visible and invisible to our physical senses, including matter, are simply patterns of energy. The Universe is a field of energy, and here’s the kicker — this field of energy is conscious! How and why this is so is a still bit of a mystery, but none the less consciousness is the fundamental stuff of the Universe and everything else is just derivative.
Our consciousness is not a product of our physical brains, as contemporary science would have us believe, it is a thread of Universal consciousness. There is only one consciousness in the universe and it is the “source” of each of ours.
The Nature of Reality
The reality we perceive and experience isn’t the objective thing that our physical senses and analytic mind have concluded, it’s more akin to a very lucid coherent dream. We exist inside of a mind-scape — a great conceptual space created by the thoughts of the cosmic mind. We are focal points of awareness of that cosmic mind, each perceiving and experiencing a small slice of this great conceptual space from its own unique vantage point. The reality that we perceive is just the tip of the iceberg. There are multiple realms of existence and planes of reality within this great conceptual space — there’s so much more than we’ve ever imagined and it’s amazing!
The self that many believe is all of them, the self that identifies with the physical body and physical mind, is a mere transient fragment of your true self. Your true self is your consciousness, and it is a thread of universal consciousness. And this consciousness that is you is organized into multiple layers, with each higher layer being a composite of all the parts in the lower layer — you are multidimensional being, and every level of your self is striving towards reunion with its source — this is the process of ascension.
The most immediate higher layer of your consciousness is your Soul. Your Soul is an individuated aspect of universal consciousness with its own focal point of awareness, and local memory that accumulates and stores all of your experiences, and the understandings derived from them, within its energy field.
Your Soul created and connected to your physical body because physical existence is unlike anything in the non-physical realms and provides highly formative experiences that contribute greatly to its spiritual evolution and ascension.
Your soul is part of the multi-layered composite structure of universal consciousness. As explained in depth in my article The Multidimensional Self, source consciousness created many selves within its one self by the process of division. It subdivided its consciousness into multiple points of awareness each with its own local memory thereby creating individuated sub-threads of its consciousness — in essence sub-selves.
