Levels Of Awareness … Continued

Being aware:
aware of whatever we are doing.

Being aware of being aware:

Being awareness itself:
our original reality.

Awareness follows where attention goes. Whatever awareness focuses on, it becomes. This is why, in meditation, we first focus on the breath as it calms activity in the mind and body.

However, this is also why we become distracted and confused about our original reality. When awareness identifies as a gender, race, culture, religion, class … we lose our original reality in favour of focusing on a status, playing a part like an actor. Professional actors play many parts; we, as individuals, adopt one part, and that is our lot for life.

Awareness comes from consciousness.
When consciousness adopts a part, that part is called ‘self’.

When consciousness rests in its original, uncontaminated reality,
inner peace is maintained.
