Touching Your Core Self – Part 1

This is a six part series, plus notes: Part 2 – Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Notes

From the moment of conception until birth your tiny being increased its weight about twenty-seven million times. During that momentous spurt of growth incredible changes and developments took place within you. At first your cells subdivided in the manner of any fundamental cellular growth. Then the foundations of your spine, your nervous system and brain emerged. But at that point your body developed gill like structures in the manner of a fish.

Slowly your human potential emerged and developed, strengthening and readying you for birth.During those months of uterine life you went through the whole process of evolution in a condensed form.

From a single celled creature you developed into a multi celled being, then on from that into a creature that could move and have focused feelings and responses to experience. Recently (2003) scientific proof, through the ultrasound scan, has shown that the unborn baby responds to sound, smiles, and shows all the features that are evident after birth.

That mysterious and wonderful process of life that brought you to birth occurred quite without your conscious effort or participation. You share that journey from conception to birth in kinship with all the other life forms that exist with you on this earth. But unlike most of the other creatures you developed self-awareness and can look back on your origins. Nevertheless, even though you have attained some level of self-awareness, the process that brought you into being still functions within you to continue your existence. Without it you would immediately cease to be. In fact most of the vital processes within you still occur without any conscious effort or participation on your part. Your ego, your conscious self, is a tiny and almost insignificant part of the process. However, what you do, what you think and what you feel can enhance or interfere with that core process.

One of the most obvious ways we relate to this core process, and one of the most mysterious, is seen when we lose personal awareness in sleep, or are knocked unconscious or drugged to sleep. Something – and I am calling it your Core – brings you back to consciousness. Meanwhile it continues to stimulate breathing, heartbeat, and all the vital processes to keep you alive.

As human beings we have investigated and probed the core process to the point where we understand some of the ways in which it works, and some of the ways in which we can co-operate with it or interfere with it. Nevertheless that Core still remains largely a mystery. In fact with the development of the new investigations of physics, such as quantum mechanics, the mystery deepens.
