We have a personal mind that is possible because of the consciousness that underlies it. As we quiet the personal mind can open, with intention, to become Universal Mind supported by Universal Consciousness. Our consciousness lies embedded within Universal Consciousness.
The fact that we have a personal consciousness allows us to know ourselves as Universal Consciousness, and eventually as all of Its manifestations. No extraordinary efforts are needed. It is who we are.
I spoke the above to a student recently who was struggling to grasp who she was beyond her ordinary body/mind/personality, and was exasperated that she would ever be able to realize her True Nature. She listened attentively, then immediately dismissed my words by saying she understood the concepts, but they didn’t change anything inside her.
