THE HUMAN VEHICLE
Look in the mirror. What do you see? Most of us who feel we come from the stars see a face that looks human. And most of us also have parents who seem or seemed distinctly of this Earth. So how can we be aliens?
The human body is a vehicle or container that can hold a variety of consciousness. Rather like a Universal Turing Machine, the nervous system has reached a complexity that allows it to express an infinite range of identities, emotions and ideas. This is indirectly recognized by the fact that the majority of people on this planet believe in reincarnation. But why shouldn't the being that incarnates come from further a field? Why not from the stars? Is distance a problem for the soul, especially considering that even elementary particles in different galaxies can be interact quantum mechanically?
Pir Vilayat Khan wrote, "The assumption of being an individual is our greatest limitation." Consciousness is not bound in separate individualised packages, but mingles and flows with the entire cosmos. It may well be a natural stage in the evolution of any consciousness for it, at some stage, to become cosmic. When this happens, there is a transformation: the caterpillar turns into a cosmic butterfly because its point of reference — its origin — has moved to the stars; the human becomes an alien or star-person, drawing in information and energy through that new identity. The caterpillar no longer exists as the cosmic butterfly flies free. Once this happens, our identity — who we actually are — is the cosmic consciousness that flows down into this Earthly vehicle. Our heritage is no longer the caterpillar that turned into a butterfly, but the butterfly that came down into a caterpillar to transform it.
