The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival. – Aristotle
Awareness is your ability to experience life, your ability to perceive reality, thoughts, feelings, emotions, events and circumstances.
This ability is the most valuable possession we humans have, but truly most people don’t even understand the importance of having this ability.
The ability to be conscious of yourself being alive, the I AM awareness. This ability is the difference between existing and being alive.
In your purest state, you are the I AM awareness.
When you mix a thought into this awareness, the Thoughts, feelings or emotions becomes one with this pure awareness to become the perceived awareness or reality.
Look around yourself, whatever you see you are being aware of, while you have not mixed a thought or feeling into what you are aware of, you will always be fine.
Now instead look at someone you don’t like.
Let’s see what’s happening now;
You are seeing someone and mixing the awareness of seeing this person, with the feeling that you don’t like this person.
Based on this your reality would be an experience of, seeing a person you don’t like.
Most people are not aware of this. When you recognize or become aware of the fact that “you were not aware till now” then you have woken up, woken up in Life, woken up to Life.
Whatever thoughts and feelings you allow into your awareness, will form your current reality.
Your current reality will energize these thoughts in your energy field or individual consciousness.
This will be responded by the universe with people, places, events and circumstances of the same energy level, based on these, the actions you take will become the results in your life.
The greatest state is the state of pure awareness, which is the state of thoughtlessness, stay thoughtless long enough and you will delve into the depths of Consciousness, the realm of the infinite.
Most people are so lost in the pursuit of their desires that they completely have lost connection with their state of pure awareness, the awareness that makes them alive.
From the state of pure awareness even the slightest hint of a thought or a desire will start manifesting it into reality.
You are awareness. Awareness is another name for you. Since you are awareness there is no need to attain or cultivate it. All that you have to do is to give up being aware of other things, that is of the not-Self. If one gives up being aware of them then pure awareness alone remains, and that is the Self. – Ramana Maharshi
