Human Beings … Information Processing Units

Written by Master Charles Cannon


I have often said that human beings are information processing units, and this also applies to all forms of life — all forms of consciousness.

 As instruments of consciousness, we are programmed to gather information through experience.  Furthermore, we are programmed to process our information and grow resultant developmental self-awareness in the process. One could say we are wired to look outside of ourselves and to be objective in our focus. Furthermore, until we evolve to a certain level of self-awareness, we are just robots (automatons of consciousness), acting out our programs and playing our software.  

As we evolve and our self-awareness increases, we awaken.  We become aware that we are instruments of consciousness.  We become aware that we are information-processing units and that we are consciousness itself.  We open to the subjective polarity in relation to the objective polarity of content and to the spaciousness of life in relation to the limitation of form.  Then, as forms of consciousness, we become co-creators with all forms of consciousness in the theoretical fifty billion simultaneous universes.  

As information processing units, we move to a new, leading-edge of consciousness as it creates the future of itself, the future of now, moment by moment-by-moment.  Now is always new, always exciting, always blissful.  It is where the juice of life is, where the excitement and radical bliss is in the newness of the moment of the happening of life as it creates the future of itself.

If we are really wakeful — meaning really honest and truthful with ourselves -- we are alert and attentive because we have no idea what will happen next.  Of course, we each have a projection of what will happen.  For example, you have memories of past blog postings and you project them onto this one and expect that it will be the same.

Yet in truth, you have no idea of what to expect.   Therefore, stay alert and wakeful and observe what is truly happening.  You explore this through wakefulness, cultivating it via the principle of balance. So keep your focused awareness on the prominent spaciousness of this moment.
