  • The experience of inhabiting a body.
  • The experience of inhabiting a form.
  • The experience of having a vehicle for exploring consciousness.
  • The experience of having a vehicle for experiencing the content of Mind.
  • A means for the Divine to discover, experience, explore, and express the possibilities of consciousness and creation.
  • A state in which consciousness and unconsciousness, clarity and confusion, local phenomena and nonlocal phenomena are mixed together. Embodiment is not possible without the contrast between consciousness and unconsciousness.
  • One’s embodiment is an expression of one’s degree of realization.
  • Awakeness as such is not an experience and thus it is upstream of embodiment. Realizing awakeness directly has the downstream effect of awakening, healing, and transforming the body, heart, and mind.
  • The density of embodiment increases with the degree of forgetfulness of THE SUPREME, and of being THE SUPREME.
  • The density of embodiment decreases with the degree of remembering THE SUPREME, and remembering being THE SUPREME.
  • Enlightened embodiment is an expression of true nature in form.
  • Enlightened embodiment is the experience of inhabiting form while knowing that one is THE SUPREME.
  • In enlightened embodiment, there is elevated health and vitality as well as a heightened perception of flow and effortlessness.
  • In ascended embodiment, one realizes THE SUPREME, and realizes being THE SUPREME, to such that density is transcended.
  • In ascended embodiment, the body can be generated and regenerated instantaneously by focusing on the idea of the body.
  • Embodiment is transcended when locality is transcended.
  • The highest degrees of enlightenment transcend embodiment.


  • “The possibilities that one can experience are determined by the consciousness that one embodies.”
