Awareness is the greatest of all gifts. It's free to share when appropriate; it's never manipulative or controlling, and it so easily harmonizes two hearts into a loving agreement. Awareness is the division of existence through the mind, which is what creates our turmoil and pain. Life is seen in parts and is divided by judgments about the nature of reality. We are forced to choose and, thus limited in our ability to see comprehensively all sides of a situation. We become blind, prejudiced and divided.
Awareness is the gift of seeing totally from a higher perspective within us. It comes as a knowing and not a series of propositions, arguments or theories. We know and we are certain we know, but we may not know how it is that we know -- we just do. Awareness equalizes the playing field and applies understanding to our minds and hearts.
Peace is a gift and byproduct of awareness -- conflict is ended and harmony is then restored to us and others. It is the lack of awareness which prevents the world and its people from coming together. Awareness reveals that there is but one world, one universe, one people and one truth. This truth is not of religion or God, but of a personal connection to it through consciousness. You cannot learn awareness. Awareness arises out of the conflict of mind and heart and is often born out of turmoil.
Awareness is the true gift of life, the energy of the eternal, flowing from one heart to another and healing the separations of race, creed and color. It is tasting our true identity and remembering the greatest good within us. Dare to be aware ... and then dare to share it.
