DefinitionsConsciousness starts with awareness. Awareness is the first stage of consciousness.
Consciousness is awareness in action.
Consciousness is full awareness in full action.
“Consciousness is being aware of your reality at the very instance of it happening and then being a full participant in that reality.” *
Consciousness is full awareness, action and participation in creating reality.** Maturing through these levels of consciousness are co-evolutionary with maturing from Giri So to So Dayi. (See, “Definition | Consciousness & Communal Family Values And So Continues The Meaning Of Life & Existence (Part 8i)” and “African Consciousness Called Me A Stupid Nigga And Thankfully So”) Conscience is a genetic-mental-emotional-spiritual manifestation of the Higher Self. Conscience is the essence of moral thought which drives moral behavior which shapes character. Conscience is the result of understanding based on connection and unity. The Conscience is Nun. Ego is a genetic-mental-emotional-spiritual manifestation of the Lower Self. Ego is the essence of immoral thought which drives immoral behavior which shapes character. Ego is the result of understanding based on disconnection and division. The Ego is Ogo. The ego represents separation between self and others, thus the basis of the ego is Ego systems versus Ecosystems. Since ecosystem is harmony. The ego is against harmony. When you say yes to ego you also say no to harmony, peace, justice, health and life. What you give or don't give to others you must first give or not give to self. For this reason, the ego is a front for loneliness and stupidity, thus an affront to happiness and wisdom. Morality is action and/or inaction based on deciding to align with harmony.
Immorality is action and/or inaction deciding to align against harmony.
ConclusionEvery person has one Spirit separated into the Higher Self and the Lower Self. These are what humans call the conscience and the ego. Thus, the basic nature of the universal spiritual war is Ego versus Conscience. This is also the nature of the internal struggle in every person. For a person to be at war externally, in the attack mode position, the person's Lower Self ego must be in control internally. This means the person is suffering from a lot of self-inflicted hurt and pain related to lack of understanding about each of the four aspects of self. Let your conscience be your guide and your conscience will lead you to what heals inside and outside. *Professor James Smalls
