Notwithstanding the other specific connotation about the word ‘CONSCIOUSNESS ‘My personal interpretation is derived from its HINDI Translation which reads ‘CHETANA ‘the noun of CHET meaning thereby ‘HOSH’leading me to take it as synonym of ‘LIFE FORCE commonly represented as BREATH the PRAAN.
And life force is being indestructible is ATMAN the SOUL .SOUL is the composite of personal founding base of accumulated experiences arising out of personal creativite profiling sourced from ‘NTELLIGENCE‘’ MIND’ INDIVIDUATION loosely understood as EGO translated as AHAM the lower SELF.
All this lies in the founding profile of our being philosophically called ‘SUBTLE’ body as distinguished from GROSS body constituted of of our senses both organic and functional so called GYANENDRAYAN and KARMENDRIYAN and Five nature components Either ;Water ;Fire:Sky ;Air.
CONSCIOUSNESS is the symptom of SOUL. And entire universe is the expression of such symptom
This is better understood by drawing the similarity with the waves in the ocean .Waves like mind strike the shore ceaselessly and creates bubbles all over and then goes deeper to the surface and settle down. Similarly the unsettled mind finds settlement at the base. And the natural process is meditation. Maharishi named this process TRANSCEDENTAL. Transcendental is . BEYOND EMOTIONAL PLAINE -BHAVAATEET.
CONSCIOUSNESS is the Fourth and last state of of our being other three namely awake; half awake and half sleep and Sleep .
CONSCIOUSNESS is infact Transcendental JOY of knowning your ‘REAL ME’
All this is summed up through OPEE MODEL for PERSONALITY EFFECTIVENESS
Maharishi ji defined
consciousness as being an eternally silent, self-referral, self-sufficient, unbounded field of existence, and said that the diversity and dynamism of all of creation is the expression of this field
Eternally: omnipresent beyond time and space
Silent : Passive
Self –referral : Recall by the individual Self
Self Sufficient : omnipotent inclusive potentiality
Unbounded field of existence : limitless presence
Diversity and dynamism of all of creation is the expression of this field : Nature and its diverse manifestation with set yet changing pattern
OUR LOGO and its relevance: FROM POTENTIALITY to ACTUALITY through CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE
And the process is TM भावातीत चेतना
