Our Universal Mind

We all share a universal mind and a universal intelligence. The universal mind can also be referred to as a universal consciousness. The universal mind is everywhere in our universe and is also present in each of our individual minds. Some major characteristics of the universal mind is that it is all powerful, all knowing, all creative, and always present.

A philosopher named Anaxagoras, who lived before Socrates, had the notion about the universal mind and he shared his knowledge around 480 B.C. He taught that everything was created by the mind and that the mind held the cosmos together and gave human beings a connection to the cosmos and a connection to the divine. The term Universal Mind was originally derived from Georg Wihelm Friedric Hegel.

According to the Wikipedia encyclopedia, "Universal Mind is the universal higher consciousness or source of being in some forms of esoteric or New Thought and spiritual philosophy. It may be considered synonymous with the subjective mind or it may be referred to in the context of creative visualization, usually with religious or spiritual themes."

When we individually make a connection to the universal mind, then anything is possible. We can use the universal intelligence for our personal good and for the good of our universal family. Living in a mental state of universal consciousness will allow us to make better choices and we will open up to universal creativity.

In order to make use of the universal mind, we must become aware that there is a universal mind within our vast universe. It is good to keep an open mind that is open to new ideas, concepts, theories, perceptions, and beliefs. A closed mind will have psychological walls stopping the universal mind from operating within our conscious state of mind. The best way to access the universal mind is to slow down our personal thought processes and engage in spiritual prayer and meditation.

An uplifting post and thought provoking, thanks Michael. We should guard against divisive thoughts that will isolate us from positive energy. The beauty inside can be seen from outside by how we conduct ourselves. We need a higher consciousness to get out of the vicious cycle - siva
