The Three Primary Modes of Perception, Conception, and Presumption

Excerpted from

“God-Talk,Real-God-Realization,Most Perfect Divine Self-Awakening, and The Seven Possible Stages of Life”

From the “point of view” of the gross body (or gross conditional existence), everything (including mind and Consciousness) is perceived, conceived, and presumed to be an irreducibly material, finite, mortal process.

From the “point of view” of the mind (or subtle conditional existence), everything (including the gross body and all gross conditions) is perceived, conceived, and presumed to be an “effect”–made of the Infinite “Objective Substance” (or the Infinite Cosmic Reservoir) of Indestructible (and, Ultimately, Indivisible) Cosmic Light (or Cosmic Mind Itself), and “caused” by (and within) the Infinite Totality of Cosmic Mind. And even the Totality of Cosmic Mind (including the individual mind, and Consciousness Itself) is, thus, presumed to be Cosmic Light Itself (or not other than Cosmic Mind Itself).

From the “Disposition” of Consciousness Itself, everything conditional, “objective”, or “objectified” (whether gross or subtle or causal) is perceived, conceived, and presumed to Be Consciousness Itself (or the Ultimate and Transcendental and Inherently Spiritual, or Love-Bliss-Full, and Perfectly Subjective Reality Itself), such that conditional, “objective”, or “objectified” reality is Inherently Realized to be a merely apparent modification (or an illusory “play”) of, in, and upon the Native Radiance (or Intrinsic Self-Radiance) of Consciousness Itself.

These three primary perceptions, conceptions, or presumptions also correspond (variously) to the seven potential stages of life.

The perception, conception, or presumption based on the “point of view” of gross conditional existence corresponds to the conventional perception, conception, or presumption associated with the first three stages of life. And the cultural and general social bias toward “scientism” (or “scientific materialism”), or the gross-body-bound mentality that seeks, by means of gross-body-based “knowing”, to achieve power (or manipulative advantage) over the natural “world”–and which tends, and even seeks, to bind or limit humankind to gross conditional Nature, and to the even ancient tradition and philosophy of gross materialism–exemplifies this lower, or mundane, or adolescent orientation.

The fourth stage of life is a transitional stage (or process)–originally grounded in (or naturally associated with) the gross conditional “point of view” of the first three stages of life, but Awakening (progressively) toward the (potential) “point of view”, the perception, the conception, and the presumption of subtle conditional existence, mind (or total Cosmic Mind), and Cosmic Light. And the process associated with the transition to (and through) the fourth stage of life is the source of popular “creationist” (or “Creator-God”) “religions”, as well as the popular (or less developed) forms of sainthood.

The perception, conception, or presumption based on the “point of view” of subtle conditional existence, mind, and Cosmic Light (in Itself), or Cosmic Mind (in Itself), corresponds to the perception, conception, or presumption associated with the fifth stage of life. And the conceptions and practices associated with the fifth stage of life are the primary traditional sources of all that is commonly known as higher esoteric (or “secret” and mystical) Spirituality.

The perception, conception, or presumption based on the “Disposition” of Consciousness Itself corresponds–in its yet ego-based “object”-excluding mode–to the perception, conception, or presumption associated with the sixth stage of life. And the sixth stage of life is the basic (or common) source of Transcendentalist conceptions and traditions of Enlightenment (or Liberation).

Any one of the three primary modes of perception, conception, or presumption I have just Described could be (and is) affirmed by individuals, groups, and traditions in the human sphere–but which one of the three modes is ultimately correct (or expressive of Truth Itself)? It is the third–or the perception, conception, or presumption based on the “Disposition” of Consciousness Itself–but only in the Intrinsically egoless Mode of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of life. Why? Because, no matter what arises as your “experience” or “knowledge” (whether gross or subtle or causal, and whether of body or of mind), you Are the Witness of it–and That Which Is the Witness Is Consciousness Itself.
