Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is Consciousness?
This topic is so vast that Al spent nearly fifteen years exploring it, experiencing it, re-membering it, in order to bring it back into the consciousness of finiteness. Therefore, this question is answered with a series of quotes, first one from Al, followed by quotes by Lama Sing taken from the “Consciousness Readings” given 2005-2018. These readings will be made available in Tier 5 in the Spring of 2022.
AL MINER: The absolute Freedom found in Consciousness is immediately conditioned, limited, by rational thinking.
- Consciousness is not confined nor limited. You don’t find it by following a rote or dogma. You find it by freeing yourself from rote and dogma.
- Finite consciousness, which was and is nourishing itself, has only limited form; the greater Consciousness, which is eternal, is the true power, the true life.
- Exploring the nature of Consciousness is best done through the experiencing of it. If it is sought after through the intellect, it may be of diminishing result because the nature of consciousness involved in the intellect requires definition.
- Consciousness is perceived as moving at a certain pace, yet it has expanded before it can be thought.
- Consciousness includes the finite realms of expression. It is only they who dwell therein who choose to ignore it. Yet there is no life without God, without Consciousness; no existence without His presence.
- Consciousness is the reflection of the potential within self.
- Consciousness is as a great Sea of Oneness. It contains all that is. One could say, accurately, it is God. Or if you prefer, for understanding, it is God’s Word having been spoken.
- Movement through time and space is a measurement of finiteness; from Consciousness there is no such measurement because it is all present. It is. The unfolding of Consciousness is immeasurable by time, space, location, and other quantifiable measurement.
- Consciousness can unfold creation within itself.
- When Consciousness sees and knows Itself and knows that within Itself there is a void, Consciousness can choose or intend to fill the void, and do so with an expansion of the void to include depth and perspective, harmonics, and all sorts of things that could be seen, felt, known in all of the sensory perceptive mechanisms of the Earth, and far beyond.
- The simplicity of Consciousness is such that it cannot, in finiteness, be grasped without definition. Therefore, definition is given because it is known by those who are Free to be of value for those who are seeking Freedom. Thus, if you choose to give reference to others using definition, honor that; if you choose to give reference to others using the expansion of Consciousness itself, then honor that as well.
