When you are conscious you are aware of who you are and very in tune with your soul. Everything you experience is in the present and absolutely nothing that’s happened even a second ago are you concerned about because it’s in the past and completely gone. You are not even thinking about the future because it hasn’t arrived yet. This is the way to a happy life where the ego is just displaced, and your thoughts are in the now and positive.
Being conscious is a lot like mindfulness, but it involves going deeper within and becoming one with your soul. When the mind is quiet because you are living in the now and not somewhere in the past or future you are able to think clearer, be kind and giving, breathe deeper, be joyful and very creative. Conflict is gone from your life because when you are conscious you have no need to prove yourself. No more arguments and hurt feelings.
To get to a conscious state just clear your mind from all its chatter and meditate going deep inside yourself. Inhale the beauty of silence as it rolls over you and feel yourself connect to your soul. I’ve done this meditation while at the gym on a bicycle and rowing machine. I could hear the noise around me, but I felt disconnected from it. Afterward, I was very relaxed and so connected with my very being.
At first, consciousness will last for a limited time, but as you keep practicing it will become your normal way of being. Your goal is to one day have the consciousness feeling just become automatic without having to meditate. You want to be able to clear your mind from the chatter of ego and live everyday connected to your inner self just flowing naturally.
I know this is a different way of living life, and it may seem impossible to do, but with practice, it’s doable. Take a chance and become connected to your soul and feel the peace and satisfaction of a happy life that is your right, and be on the way to attaining nirvana with your Spirit.
“The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.” ~ Lao Tzu
