3 CONSCIOUSNESS
With Action comes Consciousness, separating the world into self and other.
Dependent Origination Consciousness
THE LEVEL OF ORDINARY
An Action becomes a subjective experience; mental fabrication relating the experience to the self.
Body and mind are linked; an Action becomes part of memory.
THE LEVEL OF DEEPER UNDERSTANDING
Consciousness anchors an Action into karma. The Action itself and the experience of that Action
becomes part of the continuum stream of mind consciousness.
THE LEVEL OF ULTIMATE WISDOM
Actions pass into consciousness and consciousness of all Actions accumulates into a great
karmic imprint which is sometimes called the ‘consciousness that links on’.
