What you think, you do. What you do, you experience. What you experience, you feel. Be conscious of that cycle and you can know freedom.
Self awareness. What is it? How do we know something is self aware?
It is our natural state. It is?
Take notice of self, look at it, feel it. Can you take notice of something that cannot be defined apart from other things? Yes. Interesting. How so? You have already given it definition by noticing it even though it is attached. Attached is a perception. If science is to be believed, literally nothing is attached in any real way. Atoms are mostly empty space.
Hmmm… Have you ever misplaced your keys? How was it you came to misplace your keys? How did you come to be unable to find them?
I put them somewhere where I knew where they were. The place I thought they should be, turned out not to be. Because I then forgot that place. Because all places more or less look alike?
True. Unless I set up a distinguishable thought attached to the place in my mind. What about thoughts? Are they self awareness? Points of view. Are they self awareness?
Awareness is the blank between thoughts, or points to. Is the space between thoughts blank? It appears so to me. Appears, yes. This is commonly apparent. What does it mean for something to be blank? Can anything you identify as an object be self?
Relation between body and mind? Body is self too? Those are often not on the same page of awareness. Your body may be in hunger and your mind worried more about something else. Perhaps body is an object of self awareness? But is any object illuminated by a light, the same as the light itself? The inner light shines on many things.
Body appears in awareness like the world. Self appears in awareness also, or we could not be self aware. But what is it we are aware of that is this self?
What about presence? Excellent. How are we aware of presence?
It is a source flowing in our awareness. Yes. The flow is the source itself.
It is not graspable. Not graspable, but possible to perceive. Thus we are self aware, and we are not only self aware but self motivated.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
