What is consciousness? Consciousness is your individual awareness of your unique thoughts, memories, feelings, sensation and of the environment. The complete meaning of consciousness is your awareness of yourself and the world around you.
Individual awareness, none of us is lacking in it. We are aware what we enjoy and dislike. It is often said by us that I am an individualist. I am proud about it because I consider myself original and apart from the rest. As individualists, we stress our needs and perceive ourselves as independent and autonomous. We satisfy our needs and take care of ourselves. Wow!!
Our memories do they relate to us only, are we the center of our universe? Do our memories connect with others or am I the queen or king of the center stage?
Our feelings, sensations and the environment, do we see ourselves as being the experiencer only? Are we only impacted by our self-reflections.
The new year just started my dear ones. Examine yourselves. Ask yourself these pertinent questions. None of them is incorrect. How do you feel?
Are you the only exceptional one and if it is so, then what is going to happen to Mother Earth. How can we connect with each other if we only are thinking about ourselves.
Do you know the story of Narcissus?
The narcissus is my favorite flower and its smell is pretty. In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a hunter, who was known for his beauty. He rejected all romantic advances and he fell in love with his reflection in a pool of water, staring at it for the rest of his life. He failed to recognize himself. Is it not a sad story about the most beautiful man, son of a river god and a nymph?
Become aware of the feelings and emotions of others. Try to be sensitive to all, before putting yourself first. Tend to the environment, which means the natural world in which we all live along with the water, air, plants and animals. Collective consciousness is awareness of this universe.
