To understand more about the nature of consciousness and the mind:
Core Assumptions of Science which are viewed as deceptive and false:
Science assumes that reality starts with observation (that which is outside of self/being/awareness/consciousness/mind). This assumption leads to a viewpoint that all reality is that which we discover about the physical universe. Science has ignored our higher self (our objective beingness) and assumed that we are nothing more then matter and energy in motion. This mindset has distorted all of reality to some degree!
Science is now realizing, however, that our consciousness is the fundamental core of our being human. And science wants to explain consciousness as an emergent result of our brain. This viewpoint (and philosophy) is rejected as deceptive and false. In reality, I am conscious and alive and my awareness and behavior derives from this starting premise. It is my non physical consciousness which perceives the outer physical universe. It is myconsciousness which creates my thoughts, subjective feelings, and my individual personhood (who I am). Consciousness is my ‘spirit within’. My ‘spirit within’ then perceives the outer universe. All that I am derives from my consciousness/mind.
The starting point for any meaningful view of human behavior and human action needs to focus on our ‘spirit’ within (consciousness). Kingdom economics assumes that every human being is a ‘spirit’ being living in the Now moment! Consequently, all reality needs to be interpreted based on this fundamental principle. Time and the physical universe derive from our subjective consciousness. Reality is always derived from who we ARE each moment of Now. And we are NOT our physical body/brain. We are consciousness!
