The Experiential Awareness of Being
“We are as conscious as we are present.”
We are born into physical reality with the feelings, thoughts and behaviors of our ancestors. Existence in social reality is inhibited by the programming of our education, engagement, heredity, intelligence and religion. We instinctually and intellectually adopt and enact perceptual filters to insulate our solitary lifestyles. Our desire to be right supersedes our need to express our truth. We are defensive when we encounter anything distinct from our individual and socially adopted narratives. We sacrifice our personal power, becoming victims of addiction, exploitation, fear, influence and insecurity. We eagerly chase peer affirmation for a superficial existence.
The Vortex of Our Oblivion
We settle for a life of anonymity, as it seems the easier way. Yet, surrendering our personal power to entities and organizations, reliant upon our acquiescence for the imposition of their control, is the cause of society’s current conundrum. We are born an eternal being into a physical form. Yet, we are afraid to acknowledge, become and express our unique soul. Through our exposure and interaction with social reality, we eventually devolve into a vortex of egotism. All who succumb to the selfishness of their desire are the vacuum of a black hole. All who choose to express from their soul are an emanation of the universe.
Against All Odds
We are conditioned to preoccupy our lives with trivial amusements, obligations, pastimes and pursuits. Social reality constantly distorts our focus of awareness from establishing an equilibrium between our instincts, thoughts and feelings. This essential balance brings us into alignment with our intuition, soul and the universe. Our apathy, fear, insecurity, institutionalization, perceptual filters and self-righteousness prevent us from experiencing and becoming the fulfilled expression of our being. Our bodies and minds are cluttered with artificial sensation and thought, enslaving us with virtual reactivity to social reality’s engineered exploitation.
An Act of Will
At any moment, we can shift our experience. The contemporary standard of living is to be born, deceived, enslaved, manipulated, programmed and inevitably die. No matter how we may elect to perceive these human conditions, they are the result of the social reality we cling to for credence, meaning, reference and relevance. Awareness of these probable outcomes are opportunities to break the antiquated patterns of our instincts, thoughts, feelings and behaviors, to align with our heart center, intuition and soul. Conscious experience is an expression of our focused will. A spark that lights the fire we kindle with our vision and intention.
“It is our birthright to create and empower our awareness.”
Experiencing relativity in our environment and society begins with understanding ourselves. Not the function, history or knowledge of what we do, yet who we are being. We are all victims of collapsing and compounding our profession with our identity. How we sustain ourselves financially is not an expression of being. Making this vital distinction frees us from becoming prisoners of our programming. We cannot be self-aware until we are related with the universe. Self-awareness is transcending our environment, transforming our relations and empowering our being with our intuition and soul.
Once we establish and sustain our awareness of self, we can apply and express consciousness in our social engagement. Our soul, intuition and heart center empower us to be as present as possible in our relativity with society. The most important practice in all our relations is to listen. When we provide an authentic environment of listening, we are expressing our being. The greatest gift we can give to another is the experience of being heard; appreciated, recognized and validated. We inspire personal power with our listening and acceptance of who they are, beyond their expression, emotion and intelligence.
Everything exists in some way. Yet, it is not how we exist; it is who we are being. Shifting our paradigm of perception from surviving to thriving may be the best way to embody existentialism. Our institutionalization conditions us to endure the positive, negative and neutral elements of our experience. When we are motivated to simply live through our challenges, we are not really living, we are evading. We misinterpret these powerful opportunities as problems. When we are empowered to consciously progress through these experiences, we are evolving. Our understanding of existence expands, inspiring us to become solutions.
We are multidimensional beings with the potentiality to have omnidimensional experiences. This is our universality, sourced by our soul’s synchronicity with the universe. Our intuition conveys our soul’s empowerment through our heart center, into our mind, body and environment. It is our personal destiny to become aligned, balanced and empowered with our unique experiential equilibrium. Our omnidimensionality creates, expresses and manifests our fulfilled experience. Living life in the simulation of social reality may seem like a gratifying encounter for some. Experiencing being in the eternity of universality creates awareness for all.
“Being present in the present is experiential awareness.”
