Part 5 - Inner Mind versus Outer Mind
There is a power within you which very few suspect. While your "outer self" - your daily waking consciousness - is focused upon the external world, your inner being encompasses all aspects of your consciousness. Your inner being includes your outer self, your subconscious mind, and all the other, so-called "unconscious" parts of your mind.
Your inner being is also called your soul - the real you, the complete you. It has also been referred to as your "higher self" because, compared to the consciousness of the outside world, it operates primarily at a higher frequency of consciousness. It manages many essential functions for you while your outer self focuses upon the experience of life in the external world through your five senses.
Your inner being's field of perception and influence reaches out to include many functions and abilities which are mostly dormant in the daily consciousness of the outer self. These include:
*An intuitive awareness of the energy and potential within situations, one which sees deeply beneath any surface appearances.
*Spiritual connection. Your inner being is your personal connection to the universe as a whole, to the higher realms, and ultimately to Infinite Being.
*Connection to other souls. In the soul realms, all souls are constantly aware of all other souls with whom they or their physical expressions interact. Communication is immediate and harmonious, with all souls being ready to support all other souls as appropriate.
These inner abilities do not have to be developed within your daily consciousness because you already possess them at the level of your inner being. You need only practice regular communication with your inner being in order to gain from this unlimited source of wisdom, insight and creativity. To achieve this, be sure to tune into your inner being every day using the Soul Connection technique given in Part 2 of this course.
Now, think about how life would be if you reversed your perspective. What if, instead of seeing life as an exterior world through your five senses, you saw it from your soul's perspective?
In the next lesson, we will be taking that exact viewpoint. Be aware that the soul's perspective is the real situation, so it enables you to understand far more about reality. In daily activity, while you are living life in the physical world, the following principle may seem abstract. However, it needs to be understood and it is key to the level of empowerment that we will achieve in the upcoming lessons.
Here it is: The perspective-shifting truth that underlies our apparently-physical existence...
Life is a dream.
You are a soul dreaming that you have a physical existence.
