Scientists have discovered three separate forms of consciousness.
Enables us to experience an outer world around us;
Gives us the experience of being a separate “self” inside our body.
Gives us the experience of the transcendent, which is a realm of reality beyond our inner and outer worlds. The transcendent is an experience of universal love and oneness.
Receptivity or Feeling
In addition to what science has discovered, our own experience reveals that there is a fourth consciousness which operates in our inner world. This consciousness is receptivity, which we also call feeling. This consciousness lets us to take in all life around us—especially the inner world.
