The essence consciousness consists of silver energy. The human has to learn to make contact with his essence consciousness by turning inwards and giving up learned images and rules.
Here he encounters layers in himself with lessons attached to them and does he have the courage, at that point, to say: ‘What are these lessons telling me, what should I learn from them?’
That is the opening to your essence.
The essence is on its way and wants to learn, but the path the essence wants to follow is often very different from what is offered by his thinking.
