Conscious: Change Your life in 6 Steps
I have always been fascinated with human consciousness, spirituality, who we are and what is the purpose for life and what happens at the end of our days. How do we find peace and joy while we are on this earth? I recently read an amazing article, I have written my simplified version of how I interpreted it and wanted to share it with you….
“Change your consciousness change your life”
at the end of the article please see the link to read the original article and the book from which it was taken. I hope you enjoy this exploration into our conscious path as Much as I did.
Here are the 6 steps into consciousness and how you can change your life with these understanding.
1. Step. The first awakening: the world of permanent change
We chase our desires and unfulfilled dreams, we are attracted by money, power, prestige, a wholesome, happy life, seemingly unreachable.
We pursue various goals throughout our lives, aspiring for something more, always wanting to achieve something more in a rush driven by our fear that we are still not what we want to be. We are never satisfied, we always want something else, we would like to be better, more beautiful, richer than we are right now.
This is how most of us spend our entire life, the endless pursuit of our goals until the end of days when we realize how meaningless the whole thing has been. What wonder is the purpose? Whatever we do or attain, we are going to lose, just as we enter the world with nothing we leave the same, so what of the chase of the goals, wants and dreams in between?
Our first awakening shows us the real nature of the world, the only thing constant is change.
2. Step. The spiritual seeking
We wish to find the security of permanence in our life. We would like to know what is next and what we are meant to do, we seek spiritual enlightenment, self-recognition in the world in hope of finding permanent peace and happiness. Our intention is to find a great master with the answers who will elevate our spiritual experience which expands our Consciousness. We will search on earth, religion and any means to find the answers we need to much.
It is through the mind that the Ego intends to understand what is beyond mind and forms. The mind in this way prepares the mental image of enlightenment, seeking, happiness etc. we don’t know so we will create an image of what we hope for.
We gather information from books on religion and spirituality, lectures and conversations attended, as we attempt to understand and experiences these spiritual experiences; to motivate us to implement our awareness in our daily life. But as with any goal once reached we return to seeking another in the relentless pursuit of happiness and spiritual connection. So like a spinning wheel we can’t get off the seeking starts all over again.
3. Step. The second awakening: the stop
We then go on searching, until we eventually become tired, and recognize its true nature. That is when we arrive at our second awakening. We stop seeking spirituality, recognizing what we have been searching for outside of us is only within ourselves. We give up the search outer and begin the next quest, the inner journey.
4.Step. The inner journey
Now we begin our inner journey one that will take us beyond the Mind, leaving behind what has held us back from the progress we desire. We trade unimportant and unnecessary things in order to focus our attention on what is most important to us.
When we begin this journey of letting go our minds become consumed in a multitude of thoughts, opinions, ideas and the emotions attached to all these. Then we find ourselves all alone, and realize, that we still have not finished, we are still to drop the illusion we that we believe our self to be.
5. Step. The third awakening: coming home
The third is the awakening of the Conscience to we realize that there is no other than the space which is full of consciousness the space where inner peace, quiet and tranquility reside.
Is this the end of our spiritual journey? The emptiness is now perfect, but we still need to make the last step in order to become credible spiritual helpers.
6. Step. Comeback
That step will take us to the point where our entire journey began. We return to the world of daily life but different since we have undergone considerable changes during our journey. The emptiness now full, in a state of conscious awareness for our fellow humans.
