This AOM is about the "I" and the universe and its possible consciousness.

There are many mothers who instinctively know about the condition of their baby.
Many others learn the harder way, by experience. Child psychologists might know a thing or two.

Then there are people who can tap into what animals are really feeling and "thinking".
Many people with pets try their very best to understand their pets, so they can make them happy. But there are those "horse-whisperers" who are really good at it.

Many married people don't understand each other, like men are from Mars and women are from Venus.

So, people who break away from their previous religions with their dogmas, they must figure out what to think and believe next. Darryl here has come to believe in a universal consciousness, maybe call it intelligence? Is there any difference? Intelligence is more creative I suppose.
But you do not believe it cares about you, nor would it rescue you in a dark alleyway (Eddie suggests a gun).

Would it be right to say that the more consciousness = more awareness of wider areas? But wait, are there bigger and smaller consciousnesses?
I think so. I have more, the ants in my garden have less. I hope anyway! Be wise as the ants somebody said. I would rather be wise as me, even if not that wise compared to some others.
But the wisdom that somehow made an ant possible must also still know how it works, or could the eternal wisdom have switched off? Maybe to get a bit of peace from all that wisdom?

I am coming to the point: if my consciousness cares about my dogs, why would the universal consciousness not care about me?
Yes, but, people who have given up on religion say otherwise, even if they felt deeply loved - by what? - at one time.

I have never had a big spiritual experience, but I have had help from the universe, whatever, whoever, I have no idea. I was just naive enough to think it could happen, and, so it has, lots of times. Maybe shutting the door to it means it is not forthcoming?
Is that maybe a way to stay clear of religion for good, not to fall into the trap again?

Larry Dossey's book "Careful what you pray for, you might just get it....." is interesting. And humorous, but also serious.

Could it be that if you pray for nothing, that is exactly what you get?
