Awaken the light of conscious awareness
I am often asked how it is possible to awaken the light of our conscious awareness so I decided to write a longer article about that interesting theme!
At first I would like to describe what it means when we speak about conscious awareness.
Conscious awareness is the capacity of our consciousness to be present and aware! It is the light of our conscious existence and determines whether we are awake or if we are sleeping
But what is it that enables us to awaken our capacity to be present and aware? What is it that awakens the light of our conscious awareness?
At this point we have to look a little bit closer at the common understanding of being mindful or present in daily life! We have to understand the deeper meaning of spiritual awakening!
Spiritual Awakening is a deep shift in our conscious existence! It is deeper than any practice and has nothing to do with our normal understanding of reality!
When we understand this we can see that it is all about this permanent shift into a total different state! In other words:
Awakening the light of conscious awareness is a permanent and deep shift in our conscious existence!
We can realize this permanent and deep shift of our consciousness by softly remaining silent inside. By softly resting inside ourselves without reacting to our thoughts, emotions and body-sensations!
When we do this we awaken the ability not to get involved in our mind and its unconscious process of thinking. We awaken the ability to softly untangle from our mind and its dream state of self!
But this not-reacting to our thoughts, emotions and body-sensations requires a decision! The decision to stop believing in all the stories and mental activities our mind tends to create. It requires a certain alertness and wakefulness when we are confronted with our inner world!
And this alertness, wakefulness and love that is needed to leave our mind and its dream state of self originally comes from a greater reality than we are! It comes from a reality that lies beyond our individual self with its limitations and misunderstandings!
At this point we have to understand that our capacity to free ourselves on the level of individual focus and attention has its own limitation. We have to understand that we need a greater reality to free ourselves on a deeper and profound level and that it needs this greater reality to be able to rest inside our very own self!
It is our true self and nature that has the capacity to free ourselves on a deep and profound level! And it is only this greater reality through which it is possible!
In the next article I am going to talk about the big relevance of our true self and nature in the process of spiritual awakening and I will describe how it is possible to access this greater reality!
With love and best wishes
