What is the best way to increase consciousness and understand truth?

  1. Receive the Spirit of Christ by faith. Wisdom, knowledge and understanding belong to God; and He imparts these to those who listen to Him.
    “The unfolding of your words gives light;
    it gives understanding to the simple.”
    Psalm 119:130

  2. Religion is a mental disorder characterized by abnormalities in the perception and/or expression of reality. Distortions in perception may affect all five senses. It is a serious social disorder. In most severe cases those affected are willing to kill and die or enthusiastically SUPPORT THOSE WHO DO. They behave very silly and irrational in full obedience to the dogmas of their respective Church brands while FORCING their views on the rest of us!
    Christians never believe that the Bible means what it says; they are fully convinced that it says only what their preachers tell them. That is why the Bible is still functional today! The Bible writers developed a Mafia way of telling people under their control to OBEY their ministers in all things. The Early Church Fathers predicted that Christianity in general wouldn’t mind the lack of a direct face to face contact with “God” as long as they have access to an exclusive book about God. The Bible writers picture God to be so mean that the idea of reading only the nicer stories about him is the best deal that any Christian can really bargain for!
    Deuteronomy 17:12-13 (NIV) The man who shows contempt for the judge or for the PRIEST who stands ministering there to the Lord your God MUST BE PUT TO DEATH! You must purge the evil from Israel* (*it is an EVIL worthy of death in the eyes of the Bible God to question anything that ANY of his religious leaders say or do!). ALL THE PEOPLE WILL HEAR AND BE AFRAID, AND WILL NOT BE CONTEMPTUOUS AGAIN* (*Holy Mafia talk!).
    Act 5:1-11 (NIV) Peter said to her, “How could you agree to test the SPIRIT OF THE LORD?* (*by withholding some of the Church offering money) Look! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door and they will carry you out also.” At that moment she fell down at his feet and died. Then the young men came in and, finding her dead, carried her out and buried her beside her husband! GREAT FEAR SEIZED THE WHOLE CHURCH AND ALL WHO HEARD ABOUT THESE EVENTS.
    The Mafia is known to give out a few slow bleeding warnings before cutting anybody down, not so God the Holy Ghost! Failure to pay the FULL tithe and offering to the Church treasury can cost the life of some moron Christian. Also, failure to eat the flesh of Jesus and drink his blood without any discernment can kill them too.
    1 Corinthians 1:29-30 (KJV) For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh DAMNATION to himself, not discerning THE LORD’S body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and MANY SLEEP* (*have died! That’s Holy Mafia talk! Any Christian getting sick needs to wonder if they are not screwing the Holy Communion.)
    Revelation 2:23 (NIV) I* (*Jesus) WILL STRIKE HER CHILDREN DEAD* (*for being in the wrong Church). Then ALL THE CHURCHES WILL KNOW* (*more Mafia talk. Your Church probably doesn’t know yet because Jesus didn’t start killing any children!) that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds!* (*the bit on “grace” was invented by Saint Paul. Jesus never mentioned any “grace” AT ALL and in all the Bible stories he’ll be the Judge! Christians hardly read the Bible. They pay their preachers to do it for them!)
    Christianity is surviving because hardly any Christian drops dead the moment they “sin.” They get sick and die like anybody else. This fact alone is used to show how LOVING AND FORGIVING IS THE BIBLE GOD! What better proof of the existence of God can anybody ask for?

  3. The best way is to amass all possible info of the subject, and to think, think, and think hard and deep, think of all aspects.

  4. Follow the one who has the truth:
    C S Lewis expands on the idea and shows why the non Christian really has no logical alternative but to accept that Jesus is God:
    “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God.” That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic-on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg-or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God; or else a madman or something worse.
    You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon; or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God. “

  5. first must define what consciousness is?
    anyway, during asleep, there is no consciousness (when not dreaming). If you agree,
    Second, three are senses: touch, hearing, smell, etc. When a particular sense gets contacted with a particular object concerned to it, you become to aware – e.g. if the object is smell-object, you can smell; if the object is visual object, you can see.
    Third, based on second –
    as contact can give awareness, the continual contact must give continual awareness. Continual awareness is concentration. Strong concentration is strong awareness.
    To increase consciousness is rather not possible (I am not sure) but to keep consciousness in longer period, you can train by concentration.
    Here comes the importance of meditation. What more important is the right meditation – as not all meditation can lead you the same result.

  6. Something just happened to me that just blew my mind apart about someone I thought I knew. It’s got me reeling…I’ve been thinking about this since I last posted a question about why it’s so easy to dehumanize other human beings because of something perceived as a difference and now because of this experience I understand the answer I was looking for. Increasing consciousness is about increasing your understanding of yourself and what you TRULY need, not what others have told you you need based off of some culturally ambiguous platitude.
    We separate ourselves as men and women and forget that men and women both basically have the same needs. We separate ourselves based on race, ethnicity, religion, sex, nationality, political party till we are nothing but illusions of ourselves and in doing so, by denying our own basic nature, it is made easy, if not natural, to do it to others. The major themes of all forms of thought control seek to devalue and stigmatize things that come naturally to yourself or at least some portion of the population. In doing so, in making self examination distasteful, by making others feel as if in doing so they are only uncovering evil and vice you can easily have them eating out of your hand and hating anything that reminds them of themselves.
    The truth I’m speaking of seeks to understand natural law and the ways that men can learn to value the lives we seem to have and in doing so can not only understand and love themselves but can then have the time and energy to truly understand and love others.
    I wish I could explain this from the position of the information I now have about a person so very close to me that I just found out I never really knew but in doing so I could break their confidence so I can’t. However, I can say based on this information we can easily dehumanize each other and decrease our consciousness and understanding by denying ourselves and then acting out of the perversion that is then created.
    That is it…the answer to my question lol…wow…the answer to yours I believe is to stop dehumanizing others, we need to stop dehumanizing ourselves….so in order to achieve what you are talking about we need to realize that each individual life has value…starting with our own. If we can’t feel this value for what we are, we can’t feel it for others and we act in ways destructive to mankind as a whole.
    Edit: We also need to stop seperating each other ridiculously. People everywhere want to raise their kids, find lovers that know them and love them, have shelter, food and water, find great careers that make us happy, We are so much less different then everyone loves to think and no one is an island.
    I know I just rambled on, but I don’t care, this is my therapy lol
