When the words “Higher Mind” are used, what exactly does this mean?
“Higher” isn’t supposed to be above your head, like in outer space or in somewhere like the Zone Girdling the Earth. Higher consciousness is not about a mythical “spiritual” place where wispy beings gather to chant mantras or prepare for a new world order.
“Higher” in this instance is inside your mind, and “Enlightenment” means you are wake. You know you exist, that you can have an effect on your life and the lives of others, and much more. For some, every moment is new, everything is new. In the new, in new ideas, they are in the light.
This answer is correct. God job!
