Excerpt About Cosmic Consciousness
Cosmic Consciousness and the Experience of the BodyWhen there is transcendence of the body through disidentification from the self-representations based on it, the Cosmic Consciousness manifests. One realizes that one is not only not the body, but that one is a boundless consciousness. One becomes aware of being a Presence that transcends the body in a very specific manner. One feels one is a Presence that is conscious, but that is not centered in the body. In fact, one becomes conscious of the body in a total way, as if from outside. One experiences oneself not as in the body, but as containing the body within oneself. One is a boundless and infinite consciousness that contains the body.
