HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE DIVINE

True reverence is learned by becoming aware of a consciousness greater than our own.

In moments when you have become aware of a higher other consciousness, you can easily

imagine that the response to it might be fear. It is part of the human condition that an element

of fear is transcended because we know that to open our heart to this greater consciousness

is to know simultaneously that it knows us and its knowledge is love.

Our self-knowledge is humbling because God's presence teaches us that He loves and

knows us more deeply than a human consciousness can love or know itself. The opening

of consciousness to God is both knowledge of God and of ourselves. We can do it because

we have been empowered to do it through the consciousness of Jesus. His consciousness is

so totally open to the Father that it is one with him, and when in silence we know his human

consciousness dwelling in ours, we are awakened by his love.

-Laurence Freeman: Light Within: The Inner Path Of Meditation.
