Our conscientious actions expand our consciousness of who we are, why we are on earth, and our role in the universal plan.
An analogy: The higher we climb up a mountain side, the more our view expands. First, we see other hillsides enclosing us - continuing the uphill climb we at last look way beyond other mountain tops, freed of barriers to our vision.
Standing on the mountain top, the feeling of expansiveness we experience in our body and mind in viewing such an unlimited panorama is an example of how we feel as we get closer to the peak of our possible consciousness.
We can attain a high peak of consciousness by continually acting in accord with our conscience, consistently, day by day, and spending time in reflective meditation.
The air at the mountaintop is clean and clear, and the actions of a clear and clean mind are simple and pure, loving and expansive with no hills of ego or self-centeredness blocking our view point and actions.
Why stay down in the tangled undergrowth of self-centeredness, when by walking upward, and looking outward from our self-centered interests, we can enjoy the panorama of unlimited consciousness?
Meditation for Reflection
Sitting or lying still begin even breathing to calm the mind and relax the body - count 1 breathe in, count 2 breathe out, continuing for a minute or more.
Think about one of the key phrases from your reading: Conscientious Actions, High Peak of Consciousness.
What is your understanding of the idea it represents? How could you apply it to your life?
Visualize yourself walking up the winding mountain trail and when a boulder of selfish action obscures your path, it melts away by your change in attitude to be kind, instead.
To end the session take a deep breath, stretch, and get up or sleep.
