Conditions and Pure Awareness

A good way to know that you are in pure awareness is when you are able to remain calm under adverse conditions. When someone or something "presses your buttons" that would normally make you angry, anxious, afraid, frustrated or worried and it doesn't bother you - you are in pure awareness. You can see the negative event and even feel it begin to seep into your body but it then simply passes through like water through a sieve.

When you are in pure awareness you have transcended the ego and the ego is no longer in control of your thoughts and emotions. This is how life is when you are in pure awareness; the ego no longer has a grip on you. You are free from things like self-consciousness, negative emotions, and all the other stuff the illusory ego can heap upon you keeping you from what you truly are - a being of ultimate freedom.

The ego is nothing more than thinking. People who are not familiar with pure awareness can get caught up in their thoughts and become swept away with all kinds of negative feelings, emotions, and actions.The ego is very powerful and can take control of your mind before you know it. However, the practice of being in pure awareness can keep you calm, cool, and collected. Pure awareness allows you to maintain the tilt toward the side of positive energy at all times and under all conditions.
