Consciousness is the part of us that is constant throughout our lives – it’s that us when we were 7 years old, it’s what is aware of reading these words now, and is the same us in old age. That us even continues when we die, just as so many near-death experiencers testify.

It’s like a light that is switched on when we are aware in the moment, but is more often submerged in the daydream of the subconscious and the sea of our emotions and thoughts. Egos like anger, anxiety, and depression, switch that light off and plunge us into darkness inwardly in which we are blind to reality and responding in the best way.

Spiritual development is ultimately about the development of consciousness – which involves using it, increasing it along with all of its faculties, and decreasing the egos that suppress it.

Explore videos, articles, blogs and books below, on developing consciousness, the ego, and awakening perception to a wider reality.

Don’t Just Think About Spiritual Realities – Experience Them

It’s so easy to skip through one interesting article, video or website to another and get informed about lots of different relevant and important subjects. It’s a great way to keep informed and open up new interests to pursue, but it’s also easy to accumulate ideas and information and not actually do anything with it.


Get Out of the Spell of Nature and the Sleep of Death

We are all in nature, as the multi-dimensional experience of consciousness in form. But we are here for a reason. To know that reason and to do something about it, we need to wake up. Not just in terms of information, as that is just a step, but in our perception.


An Introduction to Spiritual Change

Consciousness is what’s actually spiritual within and it has an innate drive to awaken, but there are also subconscious parts of the psyche that work against its awakening and are contrary to spirituality.


Growing in Love and Consciousness

Love is a quality of consciousness, which is the spiritual within. Yet consciousness is not free, as it’s smothered by the subconscious and is asleep, and so too as a consequence is love.


How Spirituality is in Consciousness Not Emotion

Consciousness is the spiritual part of a human being and it’s fully active by being aware of the present moment. Human consciousness however is a small part of the greater spiritual consciousness that could exist within the psyche.




Remembering to Be Aware of Yourself

Having continuity of self-awareness throughout daily life is very difficult, and yet continuity is important for the ability to understand oneself.


Inner Peace and Awareness of the Present Moment

Simply by perceiving the moment we can feel the beauty that emanates from consciousness, as inner peace is a quality of consciousness. If we perceive the whole we can be aware not only of the world we are in at that moment, but also our thoughts, feelings and emotions, and by observing these we can discover much about ourselves.


How to Be Aware

To be aware is simple to do but difficult to maintain. Just be aware of your inner world of thoughts, feelings and emotions and, if you can get clear of them, your perception of the outside world will also clear, as the two are really one, and then you will be living in the present moment.


The Driving Force of the Mind

If you’ve tried to live aware and in the present moment you would soon realise that however much you want to be in it, it’s soon forgotten about as other things grab your attention.


You Have to Make Change Happen

Growth in spirituality is not like the process of nature where things grow and develop and decay of their own accord – you have to make things happen. This is an inner revolution.




Depression and Feeling Down from a Spiritual Point of View

Because it is thought of as a medical condition, people seek a cure for depression, but from a spiritual viewpoint this is a mistaken way of looking at it, which can prolong the condition. I don’t see that there is a “cure” for depression any more than there is a “cure” for any other emotional state such as anger or fear.


Don’t Let Yourself Be Dragged Down Into the Pit of Others’ Emotions and Thoughts

How other people feel can adversely affect how we feel, and so learning how to be less affected and even disaffected by other people’s emotions can be a big help in day to day living.

Searching Within By Belsebuub

Belsebuub explains how using the timeless principles of self-discovery, one can observe and understand their subconscious, with its many drives and desires, and uncover the causes of suffering within themselves—and at the same time, develop their consciousness, the source of inner peace and love, and the spiritual part we all carry within.
