Are you a slave of your thoughts and emotions or are you aware of the many senses, feelings and behaviors you exhibit during the day?
Your own body is a miracle and how great your experience in life is depends on how aware you are of those miracles. Listen to the sounds right now around you; your ears have been doing that for you, effortlessly. Take a deep breath and feel the air purifying your inner self. Your body is consistently doing its amazing job to keep you alive but do you really FEEL alive or are you ignorant of all the tasks that your body exhibits to make you better at living.
Your body struggles to provide you with the peace and happiness that you chase in other trivial objects. Your true happiness lies within you. Your actual mission in life can be found within the peace that lies within you.
“Our real journey in life is interior. It is a matter of growth, deepening and of an even greater surrender to the creative action of love and grace in our hearts.” ~ Thomas Merton.
When you lack awareness you command your body to imprison itself within its own chambers and you become a slave to the many chattering voices in your head.
Who are you and why you think and do things a certain way is an understanding of the ongoing process of awareness. It is a journey and a work in progress to achieve a life of fulfillment through waking the unconscious.
Why is it that unless we get sick or one of our organs becomes less functional with age; we realize how our body is effectively working every second to make us more efficient? Our body is struggling every moment to make us more conscious and help us create a positive difference around us. We deprive ourselves of a positive living experience by neglecting the miracle of consciousness. True peace in life comes from an inner sense of gratitude for all we have. It is a satisfaction that is necessary for outer peace. In the same way real gratitude is not just the feeling of it but an expression of internal satisfaction. The most effective way to experience peace is to be aware of the love and goodness within.
