Chapter Six " Different Points of View: Universal Consciousness and Separate Consciousness" continued...
Those who know Not that they are One,
Act not as One.
Those who act not as One,
Create not Love, but suffering and disharmony.
What you create, you receive.
The Fruits of Your acts will follow your days.
After meditating for an hour, I went to Zain’s chambers. He looked me piercingly in the eyes as usual, and said,” It may be easier for you to understand Universal Consciousness, if you first understand separate consciousness. Then you will at least understand what Universal Consciousness ISNOT. And you will be able to ‘relate’ more to, and understand, separate consciousness - because that is what you have right now. Let’s begin with one of the fundamental effects of Separate consciousness, a person’s individual, separate, ‘point of view’.“
POINT OF VIEW
We’ve all heard phrases like, ‘From where I sit ....’, or ‘Walk a mile in my shoes...’, etc.. These are all common references to the significance of having separate and different points of view.
A person’s ‘point of view’ can mean two things: 1) It can mean what it literally says - the ‘point’ from which a person ‘sees’ things. 2) It can mean a person’s opinion. A person’s opinion is based on a combination of #1, and the person’s programmed beliefs.
Let’s first look closer at #1, the ‘point’ aspect.
Most individuals have a limited point of view dictated by the very fact that they are separate individuals. They are each seeing things from a different place, a different point, literally.And they see only from their separate individual ‘place’. There are as many ‘places’ that a person will see from as there are persons. And the trouble is, seeing from only one ‘place’ doesn’t allow seeing a ‘whole picture’, or a ‘big picture’.
