Yes, PB, Cosmic Consciousness is non-religious. It is a great survey of higher consciousness with many observable persons. It focuses upon the literature that exemplifies that leap of consciousness. Who knows? Maybe my schizophrenia launched me beyond the illusion of the "real" world. Frankly, I BARELY understand the illusion factor. But I do know of the Void. It seems to me, rightly so, that mental and physical interaction leads to disillusionment; the inability to distinguise any difference between reality (imagination) and fantasy IN THE MIND. It looks like physicality has the edge over the mental perceptions. YET, the brain is unable to tell the difference, within itself. This I have learned from The Deceptive Mind, a Great Course I bought.

The Void is aptly named. I have a Buddhist book called The Ceasing of Notions. It goes all through a disciple's efforts to UNDERSTAND emptiness. Finally, the disciple can reason no more. Then the Master says that the lesson is complete. The truth is that every person experiences the Void during deep sleep. It is also the reason that REM sleep is sometimes disturbing and we wake up to a distressing dream. It is the opposite of deep, peaceful sleep.

Basically, the stories of ancient days is pure speculation; even dogma is suspect especially if it is literalism. I read most of the Bible years ago. I, at that time, studied according to a routine and curious condition. But MY LIFE was strewn with unanswerable questions due to both my mindstate and my experiences. I could not connect the dots. So I stretched out beyond the limitations and discovered unknown treatises that left me with more questions. Perhaps today I am more settled than ever before. Youth is gone, sophistry is contained in CHECK (perpetually). Life is stable and people are feeding my spirit nonetheless.

You should dissolve all discrimination of individuality and absorb all things into a harmonious oneness.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.

Hua Hu Ching-primary lesson.
