Energy and Cognition in Consciousness
To be awakened is to see what we don't see in a given moment.
Consciousness is energy and cognition. Energy is used by the cognition aspect of our consciousness ‘to cause’ and ‘to act’.
Energy is the way to express cognition.
Energy without cognition is like will without intelligence. We need will and cognition to act appropriately.
To express something fully we always require a combination of elements or factors, which in the consciousness are: energy, cognition and consciousness.
We always need on top of this, logic and reason which is what the mind supplies us with.
We basically need all five aspects: will, mind, emotion, action and word. Human beings are all effect orientated, meaning we only see the effect and not the causes.
Mind and Will
This is because it is much more difficult to see the cause. It requires much more energy and cognition to find the causes of things. There are many reasons for this, one is that there is a total lack of introspection.
The logic, reasoning and justification of the mind come from the demon of the mind.
Of all the factors, the emotion is the most decisive. Emotion becomes our reality. We need to slow down the emotions. Anyhow, the consciousness is faster than the mind.
Only when the will is conditioned do will, desire and mind become one.
Discernment is a faculty of the mind, however when the mind is conditioned, we lose our discernment.
Discernment allows us to see the consequences in the future. For us to have discernment we need some separation of our consciousness from our will, mind and emotion. The consciousness is invested in our will and our will organizes our mind and our mind flows into emotion and action.
We have to create the ability to not stop the flow of life. When we work on will there comes a point where we must only have good-will.
What happens is that the force of will descends down to us and we channel it wrongly in an ill-natured way against others which is ill-will. We must be aware of what we don’t like. Because this could be an expression of what we have of ill-well.
