Thought of the Day: March 05, 2018 – Pure Awareness
What is pure awareness? Is it being awake and knowing what is happening around you? or is it something more?
I believe it is what Buddha calls “Enlightenment”.
Can you and I become pure awareness?
How do we do this? How long does it take?What kind of time commitment will this take? These are a few of the questions I hear people asking before they being the journey to find personal enlightenment.
I believe we can be mindful but it comes with first understand who you really are. No, not who people tell you, you are and not ever who you believe you are. It’s that internal you that you keep hidden form the world.
Your true soul.
You and I are made up of individual souls who keep doing the dance of life for millions of years. Any wonder why you will hear people call others people, “an old soul”.
You are not your physical body but you have taken birth in the physical form. Thought my meditation I have understood it is to experience enlightenment.
Your soul takes the journey of life. You however identify yourself as the experiencer of the journey. As you experience you give the journey meaning based on the words you use to describe the feeling.
When you die, and you will, your soul will find a new form to experience life and become pure awareness once again.
There are reasons you and I may not be awareness in the full essence of the word. Our minds are being pressured to focus on the wrong things in life.
We are the target of imagines, sounds and negative messages.
Deep in your heart you know things should be different. You have probably felt like this for as long as you can remember.
I believe people are waking up to this reality but my fear is too many people will have to repeat the journey, as it may not find enlightenment in this life time…
