Consciousness in Degrees
For accuracy sake it is important to mention that mostly
things are not all the way dark or all the way light, but there are degrees. So
also our state of consciousness at any moment can be either more positive or

own states of consciousness, be it either positive or negative. This is based
on the decisions we make and the degree of inner qualities that we utilize.

of mind and attitude, like being in a somewhat open and let go state, being
prayerful, being calm, and so on. On the other hand each human being has the
negative aspects of consciousness
to deal with also, like being upset, angry, hurt, and having negative,

of self-worth, misunderstanding something or false beliefs. What is important
is to recognize when one is functioning within these negative states of
consciousness and then to stop the negativity. This sounds easy to do, but is
more often than not difficult to do. Having self-awareness and then the ability
to stop the negative state of mind takes ongoing practice and can be done.
