It is each person’s choice to change or not. Are we ready? We only need to let go. Acceptance is the key.
It may be very beneficial for human beings to acquire the gift of pure awareness; which in turn would open the portal to pure consciousness.
What is holding us back? Generally most people “believe” that pure awareness is only reachable through hard work and sacrifice. We have been conditioned to accept these assumptions as being normal. We believe that pure awareness is impossible. Pure awareness instills images of magical powers or lengthy meditation practices. This is however only the over-active storyteller in our mind that is conjuring up such visions. The mind will gladly portray a universe of illusion and impossibilities. Realistically there are two stepping stones that may permit the initiation of true awareness.
The first is not really a step. It is the reawaken of our mind to the limitless simplicity of consciousness. This is not something that we will truly do, it will either happen or not. There are often different levels involved within this awakening. Every person will experience various stages of awakening. There is no right or wrong in the process of awakening. There is simply an acknowledgment that a person has awakened. A change in existence perception will develop as a person actively remains involved in the awakening process.
Every person will continue at a pace that is not predetermined nor defined. The awakening process will continue naturally. It would be beneficial to unlearn inflections placed on our human consciousness by the burdens of our species development. More awareness to life unity allows consciousness to thrive. Allowing our human consciousness to guide our interactions with life is the same as saying that we become increasingly aware of awareness (consciousness) and thus the totality of consciousness. Consciousness can then work hand in hand with our mind.
The mind, with all our human form characteristics can and will relearn and gradually trust this field of universal intelligence. The mind is conditioned to misinterpreting; or even worst will try to manipulate consciousness. The evolved human species has never really overcome the shock that it received on the first awakening to self-awareness. This is perhaps why we fell back into a state of deep sleep (consciously speaking). This happened after our sense of self-consciousness reached a given level. We might say that it peaked. It may have been too much for our intelligence at that certain stage of species development. This may also be why we feel the change that is occurring, deep down we desire this change but in the same instant we fear it.
The transition back to a state of awareness to life and consciousness may seem long and very troublesome. It is however not difficult; on the contrary, it is very simple. Awareness and consciousness are one and the same. That is why the sentence: “We become aware of awareness.” sounds so odd. The importance lies in realizing that we already exist in a field of pure consciousness (consciousness actually has us within it), we need only reawaken. More awareness of life is the only necessary key to open and enter the source of pure consciousness. Then the personal and collective mind will once again be within consciousness. We will no longer feel separated from it. We will be aware that “living without the importance placed on content” is the most natural dimension in which to exist.
The above article is a draft excerpt from my second book which will be published in December of this year. The second book reflects on topics, questions and beliefs that are a part of our daily existence. The second book makes topic references to the first book but is by no means dependent on the first book. The books can be read separately or as a series. The series of books that are being written are intended as stepping stones as you cross the every flowing stream of life.
Best wishes to everyone
