Level of Consciousness - Rationality
(Prior to Inner Light Awakening)
Rationality is the highest of the strictly linear levels of consciousness. This is the level of scientists, upper business managers, great statesmen, many philosophers, authors, CEO’s and others who depend on logic and reasoning to do their jobs. Intellectualizing, clear thinking, rationality, and ability to conceptualize are key traits here. To arrive at this level of consciousness one must transcend the lower emotional states that prevent calm and clear thinking. Once this is done emotions are handled with more intelligence, and thinking and reasoning predominate. Education and a love of learning are of great importance at Rationality. The difficulty with this level is the tendency to identify very strongly with the intellect, and being overly enamoured with concepts and theories. This focus makes it difficult to discern essence and context.
People are generally not born at this level of consciousness - it is earned through the progressive ability to manage and transcend emotionality. As one works to let go of lower emotional states it is also possible to bypass this level of consciousness and instead open up to Inner Light and connect with the Higher Self.
