“Spiritual Mind has been styled by some writers ‘The Super conscious Mind,’ which term is a fairly good one, as it distinguishes between the lower subconscious mind or instinctive mind, the conscious mind or intellect, and itself, which later; while outside of the realm of ordinary human consciousness, is still a very different thing from the lower or instinctive mind.
“While the actual existence of the Spiritual Mind has been made manifest to but a limited number of the human race, there are many who are becoming conscious of a higher ‘Something Within,’ which leads them up to higher and nobler thoughts, desires, aspirations, and deeds. And there is a still greater number who receive a faint glimmering of this Light of the Spirit, and, though they know it not, are more or less influenced by it. In fact, the entire race receives some of its beneficial rays although in some cases the Light is so bedimmed by the dense material obstacles surrounding the man that his spiritual twilight is almost skin to the blackness of night. But man is ever unfolding, discarding sheath after sheath, and is slowly coming home. The light will eventually shine full upon all.” ~William Walker Atkinson
Yes, there is a higher level of mind that is spiritual and may well be called the Superconscious. That seems like a good name for it since it operates at a higher frequency than the conscious mind, and much higher than the subconscious mind. Given those facts, it is hard to understand why so many spiritual people want to lower their frequencies instead of raising them, but that is another story.
There is one important reason why we in Cosolargy do not call the Spiritual Mind a mind at all. We have come to associate the term mind with the brain, and they’re certainly is a connection between the conscious and subconscious minds, and the brain. The Spiritual Mind is not connected to the brain or the lower minds at all. That is because it resides, in a sense, in the Soul, not the brain. And that explains why it is functional in so few individuals.
Because we enter this world with our spirit and soul in a dormant state, and few are taught of this fact, let alone how to awaken those faculties, they remain dormant throughout the short lives of most of humanity. While an occasional “faint glimmering” may shine through, it is usually not much, not comparable to a fully awakened and developed Spiritual Mind of the Soul.
