Ordinarily our thoughts are kind of flat. Even for a meditator, there’s not much difference in our thought processes compared with before we started meditating. Part of the reason for that is that we don’t have activities that cultivate them. In the world we have to live in, everything is at a fairly mundane and superficial level of the thought process. We don’t have the activities to support or to push the cultivation of depth that might be possible.
In our reality, usually by 30 we’re done with school. What if our whole lifetime we were in school? You wouldn’t have to work at a regular job, so there wouldn’t pressure to make a living. What if you never left school, and every day was structured around where you were in consciousness, and what needed to happen next to build the next level of openness or development, whether that involved your chakra system, your physical body, or the origination of thought, inventiveness, and process? It would be like being an adult in school every day all your life. And it would be experiential, rather than a lot of rote memorization and using the thinking process in a very superficial manner. But what if you didn’t have to think about fitting into a real world picture? Everything could be geared toward the development of consciousness, and gaining knowledge of all the different strata from the finest absolute level through all the metalevels in between.
In my understanding of what happens in the different lokas or heavens, you don’t have those pressures and mundane responsibilities. It’s all about studying and immersion in the consciousness process. When you incarnate again, in a sense you’re stopping that, or you could say in some respects you’re exercising that in a much more physical sense. But what if you didn’t have to do that? That’s what I think is eventually going to happen for us. We would literally be in school every day, but incarnated in some form in the body, even if it wasn’t as physical of a body as this. Even if it were, though, there would be a very different kind of development. Everything would be geared towards being together in a cluster, with different teachers, and all the people mentoring us would have different specialties in different layers of the chakra system, of the nervous system, of thinking, or of different subjects that they would be helping us with. But it wouldn’t be studying like we do now, memorizing information—it would be literally going into the brain in the area where that particular knowledge resides, enlivening that, opening it up, and bringing it forth, and being with people, environment, technology, and processes that are all completely geared in that direction without any compromise at all.
