Awareness is a wonderful tool to improve your life by leaps and bounds.
Awareness leads to a conscious way of living in which, before saying yes to something or someone, we will probably take a moment to consider the effects of our decision on our life as well as those affected by it.
“If, then, I were asked for the most important advice I could give, that which I considered to be the most useful to the men of our century, I should simply say: in the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.”
― Leo Tolstoy
To be able to do this, we need to slow down and pause before jumping from one action to the next. Just observe your breath for a moment. Most of the times, we are not even aware we are breathing.
Start observing a moment a day and then observe a moment each hour and then a lot of moments. You will become aware of yourself, your feelings, your body and your mind. You will listen more and appreciate more. In all, you will feel more alive. Life will not just pass by.
“Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can render the world.”
― Ramana Maharshi
To be wise is to be conscious, to be aware, about our own self.
Who am I? Where did I come from? What is the purpose of my life? Are my actions in line with my purpose? These are fundamental questions to be answered to lead a meaningful and happy life.
The series of events in our lives should make some sense, at least to us. Isn’t it?
