The Christonomous Life: Beyond individualism or Communalism

There is a way of being or consciousness that experiences the appearance of self-evident and self-sustaining (eternal) life, and through this experience, the awareness of the fluxation in this immanent presence in the conscience manifests a different faculty which regulates and guides human relations and interactions in daily activities . This intuitive faculty manifests as awareness of a fluctuation in the intensity of Life itself in a given circumstance or interaction. For example, an activity which results in a dimming of the intensity of the experience of eternal life in the conscience, suggests a correction in that activity. Likewise, the awareness of an increase in the intensity of the life suggests moving forward. A stasis in the experience of the inshining impulse of eternal life also occurs. This stasis suggests a stop and waiting posture, which may last for days, months, and even years. The faculty of living awareness of the fluctuation of immanent appearance of Life itself in the conscience and consciousness, overrides the faculty of the reflective nature (self-regulation and communalism) in regulating human relations.

A consciousness and conscience established in eternal life and guided through the direct experience of the life itself through the agency or faculty of the living and active awareness of the fluctuation in intensity of brightness (diminishing to increased illumination) of the eternal light in the consciousness and conscience is drawn into the sufficiency of the inshining Light itself and the faculty of the Light's movement to guide human relations. This guidance in the motion of the Light itself is not of the reflective nature. It is not conceptual. Affection with the appearance and awareness of the inshining light of the spirit of Jesus Christ upon the conscience is a faculty or dispensation sufficient in itself and can result in the experience of being drawn out of the reflective nature to guide and inform human relations.

A consciousness and conscience guided through the reflective nature manifests through the agency of thoughts, feelings, desires, sensations, perceptions (the reflections of the five senses and the brain) and the political, religious, economic, and social institutions established to support, profess, and promote the constructs of the reflective nature. In the reflective nature, meaning and purpose happens through participation in and adherence to these agents.

In a recent article concerning a segment on a television news outlet, the writer highlighted the reflections of a guest who is concerned with the popularity of politically conservative social media groups and personalities and the "leeway" given in traditional and social press for a "broad range of political views; suggesting politically conservative groups and personalities should be "turned-down"; their ability to reach large audiences through social media and traditional media outlets should be limited in order to foster the establishment of a "same" or shared "conceptual reality." For the purposes of this message, the propriety of suppression of one political sect to promote another is not the concern. What is relevant is the guest's promotion of the reflective nature through the agency of the establishment of a shared conceptual reality to guide and inform human relations. This process of establishing and promoting conceptual realities is not unique among any particular political, religious, and social sect in the reflective nature. Each draws from the reflective nature in their pursuit of a dominate conceptual overlay to influence and guide human relations. It is this very faculty of the reflective nature, in the conscience of men and women, which the appearance of the eternal spirit of Jesus Christ replaces with the faculty of the awareness of the Spirit's immediate impulse through the experience of the awareness of the spirit's dynamic motion or fluctuation between diminishing and increasing impulses. This awareness of the Spirit's fluxation in the conscience replaces the reflective process to guide and inform human relations. Through the appearance of the spirit of Christ's self-evident and self-sustaining being in the conscience, people are gathered together and guided by the direct and unmediated impulse of the spirit itself in itself and are drawn out ot the agency of shared conceptual realities overlaid upon human relations.

Coming into the direct and continuous experience of the immanent and self-evident presence of the spirit of Christ and discovering the faculty of awareness of the fluxation in the Spirit's immanent appearance in the conscience is a different way than the faculty of the reflective nature to govern human relations. The reflective nature is the way of autonomous (individual) and communal (group) regulation of human relations through the reflective process. The way of the intuitive nature of the immediate impulse of Christ in the conscience is the Christonomous Life which is neither individualism nor communal nor communalism, it is Christonomous - human being guided and informed directly in the presence of Christ's immanent self-evident being and the faculty of awareness of the impulse or fluctuation of the intensity of the light of immanent being in the conscience and consciousness.
