Pure Awareness is Freedom

To some people I have talked to, pure awareness is a portal to the Divine. They experience a sense of complete peace and freedom - free from suffering caused by negative feelings, fears, and worries.  They say that it is impossible to be with the Divine and be hateful, greedy or sad. It seems when they are with the Divine, positive energy is always flooding into their very being.

When you are in pure awareness you know it. In contrast, when you are out of pure awareness you don't know it. That might sound strange but look at it this way: when you are involved in an activity like threading a needle you are so absorbed in the process of getting the thread through the eye of the needle everything else is blocked out. You are not in pure awareness and you don't know it because you are in absorption. But when you are in pure awareness you are fully aware of the fact. 

As you continue your practice you will gradually get better and better at staying in pure awareness longer. You will begin to notice your attitude changing for the better. You will feel more free, happier, more relaxed and more alive then ever before. And you should begin to see a noticeable increase in your energy levels. Other people, as well, will notice your attitude changing for the better. 

It is not impossible to be in pure awareness most of the time, it simply takes practice and a little patience. Once pure awareness is experienced it is like a phenomenon; cosmic consciousness opens like a veil lifting off of your head. It is as though everything is bright and new for the first time in your life. 

To be continued on next post.
