Consciousness Isn't a 'Box of Chocolates' for the Soul - Jon Rappoport

Consciousness isn't a box of chocolates for the soul

By Jon Rappoport

I've long had a bone to pick with so-called New Age versions of consciousness, because they tend to lead to passivity.

The word "consciousness" is a kind of convenience, a general reference to the fact that the individual is conscious, aware.

He is not "partaking" of a thing called consciousness.

It is an irreducible fact that the individual is aware. Whether that means he is aware he is reading these words right now, or he is aware that a particular Chinese farmer named Li Po is pausing to drink water as he tills a field on the edge of the Gobi desert, six thousand miles away, the individual is aware.

This fact is not an artifact created by the brain. The brain is composed of tiny particles that are not aware on their own, in the view of conventional physicists. Yet those same scientists assert that this organ in the skull somehow gives rise to you being conscious. Dead end.

Nor is consciousness a steady state or a field. Those ideas, again, are mere conveniences, vague metaphors that stand in for the fact that THE INDIVIDUAL IS AWARE. The individual isn't "plugging into" something called consciousness. He IS conscious.

The individual can be more conscious or less conscious, but in either case he isn't "entering" "collective consciousness" or "cosmic consciousness." If he is aware, somehow, of what is happening at a specific spot in someone else's mind or on the far side of the moon, then that is what is conscious of. He isn't becoming aware of these realities because he walked through a door called "higher consciousness."

A person who believes, like an article of religious faith, he is "partaking" of a "larger reality" called "consciousness" tends to go passive. He becomes disposed to staying in what he supposes is a "better place."

A person who knows he is conscious tends to opt for action. And hopefully, creative action.

You could picture the-individual-being-conscious as the platform or the bedrock from which he imagines, creates, invents. Invents his desired future. Some misguided people believes this means he becomes self-absorbed and no longer cares about the world. This is not necessarily the case at all.

Charlie Chaplin once did a ballet routine in a movie. After the scene was shot, someone asked him where he'd learned to dance like that. Chaplin stared at him. "I'm an actor," he said. Chaplin had invented himself as a dancer for the moment.

Humans can invent themselves in many roles. This is an aspect of their creative power. Which is unlimited.

In my collection, Exit From the Matrix, I include over 50 imagination exercises I developed, for the express purpose of deepening the individual's access to his own creativity.

As for the technocrats' vaunted Singularity, where the brain, hooked up to a super-computer, leaps into a new level of consciousness, this is more unsupported New Age drivel. Even assuming the hookup somehow works, the only thing the human brain would gain is more data and processing power---which doesn't equal consciousness...

Jon Rappoport

The author of three explosive collections, THE MATRIX REVEALED, EXIT FROM THE MATRIX, and POWER OUTSIDE THE MATRIX, Jon was a candidate for a US Congressional seat in the 29th District of California. He maintains a consulting practice for private clients, the purpose of which is the expansion of personal creative power. Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, he has worked as an investigative reporter for 30 years, writing articles on politics, medicine, and health for CBS Healthwatch, LA Weekly, Spin Magazine, Stern, and other newspapers and magazines in the US and Europe. Jon has delivered lectures and seminars on global politics, health, logic, and creative power to audiences around the world.
