Are you stuck facing a wall?
When you look up the definition for Consciousness, you'll see several meanings: Being awake, aware, noticing surroundings, able to think, the state of understanding and realizing, etc.
To me Consciousness is awareness. And with that awareness we can understand, think, notice, etc.
It is when we are unaware, unconscious, that we limit ourselves in the world. Our potential.
What is it that we aren't seeing? What is it that we are unaware of that could change everything?
And this isn't some far out concept. It makes sense. Take a wall for example. If we stand facing that wall for our entire lives, we will forever be unaware of what is behind us. That wall, if we choose, could be our reality. That is all we would know.
A lot of times that wall is our reality. We focus only on that which we know. Which we've been guided to look at. Whether it be social media, family, society, friends, job, the wall can get pretty damn close.
The hiccup comes when we want to remove ourselves from the wall, to see more, but all we can do is look for solutions from the perspective of the wall.
That's why Consciousness and the infinite states of it are so powerful.
It removes us from the wall. It turns us around to a world of possibility. Answers to questions never considered. Paradigms never imagined.
Truths unfolding right before our eyes.
The first step is to recognize there even is a wall. What does it feel like? How does it trap us? When did it come? What if we turn around? Are we ok with feeling uncomfortable? Uncertain?
The next step is deciding if we want to see more. Open our Consciousness. Turn around from the wall and explore.
And if we do, the answers will come. Life will open. Life will begin.
