"We all have an inner voice, our personal whisper from the universe.
All we have to do is listen -- feel and sense it with an open heart.
Sometimes it whispers of intuition or precognition. Other times,
it whispers an awareness, a remembrance from another plane.
Dare to listen. Dare to hear with your heart."
~CJ Heck

Partnership with Awareness."

Awareness Follows Attention

by Robert Cosmar

Awareness is the ability to see with knowingness. It is pure consciousness without identification. It is the essence of what we are within.  Looking outside ourselves, from a point of conscious awareness within, we need language to explain, explore and understand existence in a physical sense. 

Mind is awareness without knowingness of reality. It is perception without the knowingness of consciousness or reality. Mind, therefore, is anti-knowingness. We do not know with the mind, we only label, analyze and arrange concepts in logical order. We try to express knowingness through language which is only a symbol of our conscious knowing, but this is not what we actually know or perceive.  The mind is a container that holds ideas, memories and unconscious content. 

When the attention is turned within through our feelings and not our thoughts, we perceive that knowingness exists. This knowingness exists beyond words and without words. It is experienced as a unity of thought and being. We realize it is the truth of our being on a level of conscious realization, well beyond the mind, and a part of something deeper and richer within.

Awareness is how we perceive reality in both the inner and outer worlds. Attention is how we choose to give direction to consciousness, so our awareness can respond with understanding. We are complete, just as we are, but the division of our attention can cause a split in awareness. This can cause great confusion.  It is only when our attention is seated deep within, and our awareness grounded in the core of our being, that we are able to understand and accept reality "as is". This is our true face, and our total being of consciousness.
