“If you are willing to change… if you are willing to look… then look into the infinite consciousness within you and you will always find more of yourself through the infinite forms of creation.” This article describes the life-changing realisation that there is no such thing as absolute truth because… The knowledge with which we agree is a choice, not a description of something absolute, right, or correct.
We are all eternal consciousness manifested in human form. Your spirit is a more expansive state of consciousness that recognises it is more than the individuated self you are currently experiencing. Your spirit knows it is connected to everything in existence because of its broader focus. Spiritual awakening / enlightenment is the awareness of a higher state of consciousness, commonly referred to as your spirit or wider self. To become conscious of your spirit is to start experiencing it directly. This is to go beyond your individuality and connect with the collective ocean of consciousness that recognises itself as the creator of everything in existence. Years of studying spiritual knowledge will not change you as much as your first unfiltered experiences of the larger reality.
Your first taste of the infinite will ignite a fire within you, fueling your interest in the exploration of consciousness for years to come. The first characteristics you will notice are that the larger reality is subjective rather than objective.
- personal — as opposed to impersonal.
- Rather than being opaque, it should be reflective and transparent.
- rather than singular, it is multidimensional.
- Rather than finite, infinite.
You cannot express the feelings of love or the experience of seeing an ocean sunset in words, just as you cannot express the feelings of love or the experience of seeing an ocean sunset. These are experiences that you must have for yourself. Discussing the larger reality is best expressed as attempting to describe the indescribable. That is why you must go and see it for yourself. Because our minds have evolved to perceive things in a linear manner, indescribability means…
It is always possible to choose how you perceive the larger reality.
The larger reality is so vast that we can only handle brief glimpses at first. You see everything in that moment, but you only get to experience the outcome of your focus. Your intention is expressed through your focus. Your intention is the result of a process that has led you to want to know more about the bigger picture. As a result, when we look at the larger reality, we do not see what it is (because it is too vast), but rather what we are looking for (because ‘there’ is infinite).
This is why everyone’s experience of the greater reality (which could also be described as our common origin — a source of infinite consciousness) is unique. This inherent subjectivity makes it difficult for us to develop a shared understanding of how we are all connected through our experience of consciousness. It’s also why I encourage people to learn how to have direct experiences of channelling / non-physical communication for themselves, as it’s the best way to meet some of the more mind-bending ideas of consciousness presented by gnostic writers like myself.
The idea that we determine what we see by how we look can feel diametrically opposed to the solid, objective, and absolute way we typically view the world. We do not perceive a choice in our perception of outer reality because of the singularity of individuality, the finiteness of our human life, and the absoluteness of physical science. Instead, we perceive the physical world as external and objective, and we believe that our perception of it can be determined to be true or false with reasonable certainty (right or wrong).
Understanding that the larger reality does not operate in a reliable and objective manner entails opening yourself up to a broader level of perception in which you perceive the whole without dividing it up. One important aspect of this is realising that we are all cyclic / circular in nature (rather than linear). This then becomes the key to understanding how we are eternal (rather than mortal) and infinite (rather than finite). This is to break free from the limiting scientific mindset, which only considers what can be measured reliably.
Although scientific experience containment is highly limiting (a negative viewpoint), it can also be viewed as highly focusing (a positive viewpoint). Scientists are not making a mistake by refusing to investigate consciousness. They are all manifestations of eternal consciousness who have chosen to live this lifetime from a completely mortal perspective (until their death, which is then experienced as a remembering of the existence of the wider reality). Allowing for multidimensional perception begins with letting go of linear logic that is based on absolutes and the polarity of correct — incorrect.
Human perception seeks to divide because it is increasingly driven by what we fear rather than what we love. We have evolved as a species to constantly judge what we perceive through our fears, and we then seek to control reality in order to steer us away from what we fear. The interaction of our fears and desires produces powerful choices, which we perceive as dilemmas. We can either free ourselves or compound our limited, fear-based beliefs by making these choices. This is accomplished by resolving the polarised, judgmental beliefs within us (which are emotionally charged due to how they make us feel right / righteous / superior).
Being under the illusion that you are choosing between options that appear to be better or worse than each other (with value assigned to making the “right” choice) is a significant part of the human experience. This is a fundamental aspect of the human experience (which is an experience we designed to be dualistic).
Although we may perceive the dilemma of our choices to be difficult, after experiencing the larger reality for yourself, you will understand that the dilemmas of being human are a focusing of perception onto the freedom of our will. When viewed in context, our dilemmas as humans are an intense focus on our freedom to choose — which is also our freedom to be.
Each of us is an expression of liberty.
The transformation of dualistic perception (which seeks to divide) into multidimensional perception is experienced as the opening of our perception to a larger reality (which births through the knowing we are all connected). This is to no longer judge what you are perceiving through the polarity of “Which option is better, and which is worse? I’m afraid I’ll make the wrong decision. “I hope I made the right decision.” Instead, a broader perspective allows you to see: “There is value in experiencing each and every option. Every option is valuable to me and offers a unique perspective on how I can live my life. With all options having value, I choose the feeling of positive resonance which flavor I would like to experience next (knowing all unchosen options remain available).”
Dualistic perception is based on the concept of limited options that must be chosen between, whereas multidimensional perception is based on infinite options that can potentially be experienced all at once. Awakening to your spirit transforms your perception of reality by shifting you from being self-contained within the physical reality you are experiencing to experiencing reality as a choice that flows from the freedom to experience whatever you choose to focus on. “My choices led me here,” dualistic thinking says. “I made my bed; now I must sleep in it.” “Here, the reality before me is my choice,” infinite thinking says. It’s the perfect expression of what I’m looking for. I am directly experiencing the manifestation of the reality of my will.
Infinite thinking reflects the realisation that you are the creator of your reality. Knowing yourself as the creator of your reality is simply knowing yourself as the creator of your perception once you understand that all realities are illusions. Transform your fear-based beliefs to free your perception (charged polarities that dominate your perception). This will change the web of meaning you’ve created for yourself. Your experience of yourself and reality is formed by the meaning you live within.
The meaning you live within is not determined by your level of comprehension of some solid, external, objective reality. The meaning you live within is determined by the knowledge you choose to align yourself with. The meaning you live by is NOT derived from objective knowledge of a fixed external world. Your perspective determines the reality and self you experience. Reality does not confine us in the way we think. You are not here as a result of a previous decision.
Your reality is always a 100% choice that you make in the moment. It contains no past or future.
This means that being awake at the level of your spirit’s perception means knowing there is no opposing, trapping, limiting, pressuring, or resisting force (except yourself). Nobody can be awakened by knowledge alone. To believe it, you must directly experience it for yourself. This is an opportunity to connect with your spirit. And that is to encounter the greater reality — for everything is one connected ocean of consciousness. Someone who is awake to their spirit recognises truth as a choice… a choice from which a self and a reality emerge. Being awake means viewing your own beliefs as a choice rather than a matter of right or wrong.
It is impossible to be awake and righteous at the same time, because being righteous implies denying that we are all equal expressions of the one eternal ocean of consciousness. It is our choice which knowledge we align with. It does not describe something absolute, right, or correct. The realisation that your spiritual beliefs are a choice with which you shape your experience of self is at the heart of spiritual exploration. No spiritual belief is more or less valid than another. Their importance lies in how they alter your perception (and thereby your experience of self and reality). There can be no “correct” description of the greater reality… of eternal consciousness… of the Tao… of Nirvana… of enlightenment, because they are everything. Seeing into your eternal consciousness is seeing into the infinite. To say you are infinite is to say you are everything that exists, including everything that religion identifies as God.
My intention in writing is not to impart knowledge (although an expansive repository of perspectives has been created). It is about guiding the reader through insightful moments of broader realisation to repeatedly taste their spirit directly. My words do not describe some absolute, transcendent state of reality, but rather a belief system that will provide you with a perceptual avenue through which you can directly experience the larger reality for yourself. Your direct knowledge that the human experience is based on an illusion will come from your experience at that level of consciousness.
You can happily remain within that illusion, enjoying everything it has to offer, while becoming aware of the larger context in which your human experience is taking place. Does this remind you of a movie: “You take the blue pill the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how far down the rabbit hole you can go.” From The Matrix. When you experience the wider reality, you will realise that it cannot be described in words because it is a mirror through which you can see your larger self. To put it another way, when you gaze into the infinite, you will always see more of yourself.
Life unfolds through the beliefs you choose to align with as presented to you by the unfolding human experience. Understanding reality as a reflection allows us to see how it cannot be described in words or as absolute truth. This is to demonstrate that I cannot predict what you will see in the mirror by describing what I see in the mirror. I can only use that as an illustration of the reflection I see. Awakening is about seeing yourself in the mirror. Because of this, seeing through the illusion does not destroy it. When a child realises that what they see in the mirror is a reflection (rather than another child), what they see does not change (just their perception of it changes). We can most easily alter our reality by altering how we perceive it, rather than by altering it externally. You will need more than an open mind to perceive the larger reality. Being open to something that challenges your beliefs is an experience that you must willingly go through in order to change the foundation of how you understand yourself. To awaken, you must be willing to change who you think you are.
This is a more in-depth understanding of what it means to have an open mind. It cannot simply be a matter of being willing to consider something. It is about being willing to be influenced by it. If you are willing to change… if you are willing to look… then look into the infinite consciousness within you and you will find more of yourself through the infinite forms of creation forevermore.

Yes, experience is a language if we have “ears” to hear
