Consciousness is the fundamental thing in existence. It is the energy, the motion, the movement of consciousness that creates the Universe and all that is in it. The microcosm and the macrocosm are nothing but consciousness arranging itself.
We can feel this SPARK inside, but we can also feel the weight of evolution that has gotten us to this stage of spiritual development. We can spend a life-time feeling, expressing and sharing this SPARK, that's what a spiritual path is all about. We are both (wo)man and CONSCIOUSNESS with an ever present opportunity to express both.
For those not familiar with evolution theory, Lamarck was the alternative theory to Darwinism, consciousness expressed itself as the will to evolve. There is room for both theories as the SPARK is always happy to jump to new fields of expressions to come yet a step closer to GOD. When you get real still you can feel IT in your bones.
