I used to believe being conscious meant being spiritual and well intentioned toward the Earth and my fellow human beings. Well, I have learned that all the good intentions in the world do not compensate for unconsciousness.
We all find ourselves feeling defensive from time to time. True consciousness has nothing to defend. It is complete awareness without judgement. It comes to us only after we become aware of our personal triggers. If we are not conscious of our emotions we will act them out inappropriately. Consciousness is knowing oneself well. When we know ourselves we can act authentically in making our world a better place each day. We do not need to prove anything to anyone. We are present.
Being conscious requires daily awareness and effort if you have lived a life of compartmentalizing your feelings and traumas. Consciousness feels honest. Honesty with ourselves is the greatest gift we can give to others.
Once we are honest we are never indecisive. The decision is always obvious. We follow our hearts. We do not follow feelings of the past. We simply acknowledge our mistakes. We know only the present is important. We are not divided. Only one path is alive and vital at any point in time.
With Uranus and Pluto making their last tight square, this is a time for powerful change. May we be the change we wish to see in the world by becoming conscious.
Still having fun learning my new skill. Another experiment taken while running around in the cold last night.
Lots of fun!
This is a song I listened to a lot last year. It makes me laugh. We all get lost in our minds some times. The important thing is to examine our thoughts, fears, and beliefs. If we do that, I call it "good mind time". It's easy to be unconscious and judgmental when we are lost in our minds. Hope you enjoy the music! It's fun!
