The Philosophy Of Consciousness

Awareness is consciousness.

I am awareness.

Or I am that I am like in the Old Testament.

All religion goes into this idea of being aware.

There may be more than an object reality.

If this premise is true, we can be aware of our awareness in a non duality way.

In this sense we can be aware of awareness and aware that all is awareness.

This philosophy is born out of a sense of permanence and the infinite we call consciousness.

Without a objective reality, we or I is awareness and flows within itself in ways that resembles a reality with objects and subjects, but is really agents of consciousness that is the source of all.

Awareness is here now, permanently, in a stable way like a flow.

Because of this sense of flow, all the stops and starts and fades or emerging is now our experience.

The element of our experience that is present is awareness.

We or I is awareness.

Sensation and perception disappear when I rest or sleep or when I am at peace.

The limitation of language make words like aware limited to that of a noun.

For this reason we may express awareness as a space or field.

‘Being aware’ is a better phrase to express the knowing element we call awareness.

What I have has no objective reality or nothing.

In this sense, I am nothing or everything.

We all know we are aware.

What is the ‘we’ and ‘I’ that knows awareness?

The same ‘I’ is our primary experience.

Or I am aware I am aware.

I am not objective. I don’t do anything, I am conscious.

This is not Devine or a cosmic experience.

This is simply how each of us know our experience.

This is a way of being or a way of being conscious.

These words are essentially the same: awareness, conscious, being, knowing.

The way has no objective qualities-it is self-aware.

Our true nature is everything to us. Because we need to be what we know.

Science is attempting to learn the true nature of consciousness.

The mind-body and world depends on the nature of consciousness.

We need to go to the source and ask what is it’s true nature, and that awareness of awareness is “I am that I am.”

This is a concession to the objective finding mind.

The source of attention is absent from attention,but rather a relaxation of being aware.

Am I aware?

Yes.

For thousands of years we have been asking what is consciousness.

And it is becoming a fundamental question to science.

All other science is breaking down because we have reached the conclusion we must answer this fundamental question to move forward.

The hard question of consciousness will be hard to prove, but we all have a subjective sense of it.

Perhaps it will take a thousand years to find the answer.

Doing, when it matters most

Be mindful now!

There are many people or peoples that reflect the above image or practice.

Does the message kill the practice or is it the messenger?

Does breathing cause us harm when we fall into the habit of shallow breathing?

The experience of being mindful may be its best teacher, but many students will need a Little Rock and roll to get the message across to them.

Check out the sexy app about being mindful now!

Don’t worry, you will find it if it works for you.

Living The Good Life

I reflect upon good and bad and properly use these impressions,

Command my will,

Some say, I have consciousness.

Understand and know, I am conscious.

Shame not consciousness or do it harm,

Here is my strength: I can get what I want and avoid what I don’t want, use the proper impulse, a careful purpose, use a studied assent.

This is my job: to practice living ‘the good life’.

Do No Harm

You can read and put it into practice and journal about it.

You can talk to others about it.

But we really need to learn how to live.

To live is to learn, love, laugh and begin to build a life and a legacy.

With each life built this way, others need not reinvent the way.

But life has up and down and most of us get broken and need time to mend.

It is a challenge to live and do no harm.

We cause much damage to ourselves and others.

When we loose sight of our harm, we do more harm.

It is a big concern for all who strive to live a good life.

International Day of Peace

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political.

The more important question is about day two.

There is a need for continuing the work to a final conclusion:365 a year.

With this actuality, progress can continue to be strived for with concrete outcomes and a direction to improve on the day to day peace, ad infinitum…

Individuals need to be engaged, repeatedly to attempt a dialogue and affirmative action for ongoing continual peace.

John Lennon said it best, “Give peace a chance.”

Day by day, an actual scale to approach for everyone, in a spirit of collaboration and cooperation.

A Poet’s Muse

The truth is a mean mistress.

She fights you for love and hate.

She may value what you may not,

Or laugh when people cry,

She calls everyone a liar,

Why does she tell the truth?

Her philosophy is partial to virtue,

Her voice depends on my good work.

Her stunning nature reveals all to anyone with no reservation.

My mind blisters looking into her face.

Her power overwhelms the human race.

She answers all her calls

And always stands her ground,

I dare to love her ways.

I blame myself when she is misunderstood,

I can’t help acting like a knave in her presence.

She is demanding, selfish and pure! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truth?wprov=sfti1

What Is Worth The Argument?

To have faith or believing in arguments that conclude in virtue,

To question and inquire how to be noble in conduct and behaviour,

Not for the sake of behaviour, conduct, virtue, argument or faith,

But to learn not to act on needless desire, assertion, impulse, repulse or moral certitude,

And to practice doing this process in all our affairs,

As if logic itself is the product of such a process.

True sensitivity helps us respond to our reaction, impulsivity, repulsiveness and unwanted desire,

This hard work heals our souls with good decisions that lead us to the proper use of those behaviours, conductors,virtues arguments and faith.

Not the other way around…

What do you need to know?
