The Importance of Conscious Awareness
about a time when you did something or reacted to something and later
realized that you might have been “wrong” or became upset at something
because you didn’t quite understand it. This is something we have all
been through at various points in our lives. For some of us we can
catch ourselves before this happens again in the future, and for others
it continues to happen over and over almost as if we are not aware it.
The reason it may repeat is because we often want to attach ourselves to
certain belief systems because we may have been brought up with them or
like what they represent. It is true that belief systems can be
limiting and can often cause segregation, judgment, suffering and
conflict. While it may not always seem to be the case, think of what
happens the moment we decide to put all of our trust into a single
system of belief, do we limit ourselves? Our ego enjoys creating an
identity with these beliefs and in that identity, we give it power.
Let’s say someone challenges us on a
piece of information that we believe to be true, if we were to react and
get angry or defensive, it is because we are trying to protect this
belief. It is in this moment that we can ask, is there a purpose in
protecting the belief or information? Is it more so that we feel we are
protecting ourselves because we identify with the belief and think it
represents us? It is important to be aware of our belief systems and see
them for what they are. Awareness is the most important thing we can
have during the global conscious change we are in the midst of. The
awareness will allow us to observe where our emotions and feelings are
coming from in certain situations. We can observe and understand
“regular” “chaotic” behavior much better this way. With awareness, we do
not feel the need for conflict or judgment because we understand things
As we go about our days doing things and interacting with others,
let’s observe and be aware of our thoughts. If we experience judgment or
conflict, it can beneficial because it allows us to gain awareness and
learn so much from these experiences. They can give us a chance to see
what belief systems may be holding us back from experiencing peace
within ourselves. Allow the emotions to come and avoid fighting them,
take deep full breaths into the emotions, thank them and be at peace
with them. Once you do this you will not only gain an awareness into the
fact that they exist, but also learn to disempower them as you go.
Be aware, observe, it makes things much more peaceful!
'May we live in peace without weeping. May our joy outline the lives we touch without ceasing. And may our love fill the world, angel wings tenderly beating.'
