[CONS [or C-Awar],(CDKA&EU), C'etc , ( pronounced 'C_etcetera' )]
What is it & What does it do ?
This is the Chinese symbol for Enlightenment.
...[From the Bible, John 1-1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And...if you know what "Word" means, well... to learn what "Word" means is the reason our Souls are on Earth trying to acquire C'etc... which is the experiential awakening of the Soul to the manifested [physical] forms] that the mystical nature of the "Word" can CREATE in the Creation. So, if you Know what Consciousness means you know what the "Word" means, and you know what Enlightenment means. Problem is... it is rare for a person to actually KNOW what these terms refer to... because what they refer to are invisible dimensions "Within" Man. ?
Let us state in the very beginning of this attempt to describe Consciousness a most crucial and intriguing fact: Consciousness or [ CONS], cannot be experienced by any physical means whatsoever. This means that the philosopher who seeks to find CONS by intellectual means will fall short of doing so. The only part of Man capable of "experiencing" CONS is ones faculty of Intuition, which is a part of ones Apapsyche, which is the Operational Energy of ones Soul. And yes, these are new terms and concepts... which I coined to point to phenomena existing "Within" Man that have not previously been identified...at least not widely.

Given what I have just written, hopefully the reader appreciates that the symbols CONS, or C'etc, point to mystical phenomena that are not easy to explain, define, nor demonstrate using our normal means of communication. And the reason is simply that these operate at vibrational levels which are "invisible" to our physical senses.
Like many of the invisible dimensions of Man, ones Consciousness exists, but the elements that make-up ones CONS are not discernible... unless one uses ones faculty of Intuition. And Intuition is a "symptom" of Enlightenment [or Consciousness]. And if this reads like a riddle, the reason it reads like a riddle is... it is a riddle, of sorts.
To a certain "class" of people: I refer to this "class" of people as "Domiphobic"individuals. Or, individual Souls whose level of maturation does not [as yet] include much CONS. ...And this does not mean such people necessarily lack Intellectualism, or intelligence. Many Domiphobic people are quite bright, but they routinely lack 'common sense' [or CONS].
. On the other hand, these "invisible" dimensions of Man are [to varying degrees] discernible to another "class" of people I refer to as "Enlightened" individuals. That is, Souls that have acquired a substantial amount of CONS, or what I also refer to as "C'etc" ["C_etcetera"]. C'etc is my symbol for the Virtues of Life: Conscience, Discretion, Knowledge, Acceptance and Empathetic Understanding.
I just recently came across a most interesting YouTube video which the reader might want to view? Here
C'etc refers to the Virtues we Souls are slowly accumulating by completing Karma over many, many lifetimes. I believe it is important to emphasize that C'etc stands for phenomena that are invisible to Man's physical senses, but C'etc can be "experienced" by an Enlightened individual, via Intuition, as mentioned previously. Perhaps we have neglected the "cause" of differences in people because we cannot "see" what causes these differences by just looking at a person? And those who are confined to the brain and thinking tend to fear the "unknown"?
So, what is Consciousness, or CONS, or C'etc? C'etc stands for the Virtues we Souls are slowly accumulating by completing Karma over many, many lifetimes. Karma. And this of course suggests both the Law of Karma, and Reincarnation [a necessary element of Karma] are basic facts of Life.
What does CONS do? Well, essentially it allows the person within whom a sizable amount of C'etc exists to resist the natural desires of his/her MIND: Greed, Envy and Avarice [or an insatiable need to Control everyone and everything in life]. Let us contrast this with the person within whom little C'etc exists, where his/her MIND has little or no resistance to its evil ways, and this person is more easily vulnerable to the rhetoric of despots, charlatans, and misguided and Delusional Domiphobic Souls .
The symbol "CONS" refers to a level of Spiritual Evolution a Soul has acquired over many, many lifetimes. The symbol CONS refers to Conscious Awareness, or "C-Awar," or what Renee Descartes was searching for when he settled for "I think, therefore I am". The "problem" a person has with awakening to the Reality of the Esoteric [invisible] dimensions Within oneself is... this can't be done until a person's Soul has achieved a certain level of Enlightenment. That is, there has to be something "Within" one's Soul to awaken!
And... in the West, we are not taught about Intuition, Empathetic Understanding, or the fact that the entire Spiritual dimension of Man is invisible to the brain and physical senses of Man.
It [or the esoteric operations Within Man] are... a matter of VIBRATIONAL Resonance... that is, invisible to oneself except for one's faculty of Intuition... if that faculty is available to oneself? If one is Enlightened sufficiently to "see" [or Intuitively experience] the Esoteric aspects of one's Whole, one is quite fortunate!
Lacking a naturally developed Conscience, the personality of a child can be marginally encouraged to act within certain parameters [assuming these "fit" the Fate Karma of that child], by loving parents who example elevated levels of C'etc for the child?
Excessive punishment of a child will only harden the child's MIND. Just as a parent who is too lenient will fail to provide the necessary parameters of goodness to a child's MIND, resulting in a MIND running wild. It is fear of oneself within a child that causes that child to "act out". To punish a child severely only exacerbates the negative misperceptions held within that child's MIND. Thus convincing the child that he/she is indeed bad, and it is therefore senseless to try to be good.
Modern mental health, or BS&bp , operates in a manor that naturally exacerbates the negative misperceptions within the MIND of a child. As their "treatment" makes a child worse, they then push the child into drugs, and as long as a child maintains a drug habit for life, the child lives a life as a kind of addicted Zombi existence. I see nothing positive in any of this. How about you?
Modern mental health BS&bp , mistakenly insists that it is the physical environment alone that impacts a child. This is both naive and grossly mistaken. We human beings communicate with one another at many different levels [most of which are invisible to the physical senses], thus what BS&bp tells us in wrong, and very damaging.
Alas, Mankind [that is, we Souls on Earth], are enslaved by the MIND that is attached to each Soul.This was required [because we Souls are not really a part of Creation], and could not explore and experience the Creation without the MIND. And the Purpose of Life is for we Souls to fully explore and experience this Creation. At some point, a Soul reaches its fill of exploration... in large part due to the Law of Karma, which requires us to both engage in actions [Yang aspect of Karma], and then to receive the exact same actions taken against ourselves [the Yin aspect of Karma]. But, until this saturation point occurs [entirely Within us, and inaccessible to our intellect], we remain stuck in the endless cycle of birth and death.
