What is a pinnacle of awareness? Perceiving is not the same as experiencing. Our mind perceives what consist of a three-dimensional anatomical structure as the body whereas it is nothing but a receptacle of flow of energy and information. In this very moment, our body is experiencing change and several atoms and molecules as in the rest of the universe is being replaced faster than the speed at which we function in our day to day life. Trillions of cells are constantly interacting to each other as they keep our heart beating, mind thinking, digest food and convert it into energy, activate neurons, inhale and exhale oxygen/carbon dioxide, eliminate toxins, give us immunity from infection and disease. Despite these series of actions appear to be out of our conscious control, hundreds of studies show that our mind holds more power over our body than anything else. How do we unlock this great potential of our mind into our daily lives? One of the keys to harnessing this potentially unlimited power of the mind is to expand our level of self-awareness. When our awareness is contracted, the flow of energy and information throughout our body mind complex is hampered. Is limiting our thoughts the best way to ameliorate our awareness? It is far from the truth and to effectively evade consistent flow of our thoughts, we need to arrest the source of such thoughts. If this source as taught by the Rishis is coming from our past actions, there is no way to control them. Most of them practice and suggest pursuing recitation of a name or visualizing a form to wipe out the time that the mind could find to pursue other thoughts. Much simpler solution for a beginner like me is always a practical way that others have pursued and succeeded or what I have accidentally found out in my real-life experience. The first step is to be passionate about everything I do in my life, experiences I fill it with and feel good about the lessons I learn everyday out of my own experiences. I remain open to as much suggestions and recommendations as possible and I receive them with no judgment, rigid beliefs and prejudices. I don’t limit myself with my past experiences and deny receipt of a new information. I listen carefully to other points of view with the same amount of respect that I give to my own views. I use my discriminating power as much as possible and when I believe I have taken a very informed decision, take responsibility for making such conscious choice even if it ends up as a wrong decision and move on. Forgive myself as quickly as possible and focus on the present moment. Every minute in my life is the first minute of the rest of my life experiences. Mostly, anger, denial, fear, guilt, grief and shame are major factors influence my life negatively. They are the psychological barriers for me to be aware constantly. They block my vision towards reality. As I mentioned earlier, when a thought is soldered with negative emotions, it is empowered with unwanted energy and therefore, to the extent possible, I prefer to remain emotionally resilient to prevent myself becoming rigid. Emotions are unavoidable but not uncontrollable. Transparency in life creates a significant amount of freedom for me to remain constantly aware and when I keep secrets about myself for a prolonged period, it acts as a psychological barrier to be aware. To the extent possible, avoid regrets of the past actions or fear about the uncertain future. What will be, will be. The life is meant to experience changes and resisting change is the biggest obstacle in being aware. I am a believer that everything around me is happening for a reason to communicate something to me. I am slowly becoming a receiver of energy and information and distributing them back to the environment around me. I am neither a creator nor a creation and I am neither a receiver nor a giver. My purpose is to be aware of the connected universe and enjoy being in the present moment. Neither condemnation nor praise belong to me as I am just a receptacle meant to realize the truth, be aware constantly and experience bliss.
