Cosmic Awareness Communications
Cosmic Awareness Communications is a channeling group
that originated in 1962 when a voice describing itself as ‘‘From
Cosmic Awareness’’ began to speak through William Ralph
Duby. Duby, a former Army officer, had emerged as a medium
and a small group had gathered around him. When the group
asked who or what ‘‘Cosmic Awareness’’ was, it replied that it
was ‘‘total mind that is not any one mind, but is from the Universal
Mind that does not represent any unity other than that
of universality.’’ The group collected the words spoken by
‘‘Cosmic Awareness.’’ In 1963 the voice gave instructions for
the formation of an Organization of Awareness. The heart of
the organization was seen as the 144 entities on the inner plane
known as Essence, while the outer structure facilitated the dissemination
of the words of ‘‘Cosmic Awareness’’ to the public.
The teachings of ‘‘Cosmic Awareness’’ were summarized in
a set of laws and precepts. The universal law is the awareness
that each living thing has the power to gather all things necessary
for its life. The law of love places the welfare of others
above one’s own. It refuses to recognize the existence of evil.
The law of mercy allows one to forgive all errors. The law of
gratitude recognizes the sense of satisfaction from receiving a
reward for energy expended.
Following Duby’s death in 1967 there was a period of turmoil,
and the organization splintered. Of the resulting groups,
the largest and most stable is Cosmic Awareness Communications.
It recognized a new channel, Paul Shockley, through
whom ‘‘Cosmic Awareness’’ continues to speak. Through
Shockley, ‘‘Cosmic Awareness’’ suggested that the Organization
of Awareness had already accomplished a vast shift of consciousness,
a return to the Godhead, which had been willed
thousands of years previously by Essence. The return to the
Godhead is equated with the return of Lucifer, the fallen angel
of light.
