The way we tend to live our everyday lives is a fairly low-level consciousness… In fact, it’s mostly unconscious. Let’s be honest.
We might wake by alarm, or some other disturbance — or late, thus already in a negative mindset and scattered momentum. We may be going to a place of work that pays the bills, but is otherwise meaningless and doesn’t really serve our souls, nor that of our community, nor the human collective.
We may purposely leave ourselves just enough time to get there, to both flout our commitment, while practically begging the universe for something “interesting” to happen along the way — even if it manifests as another bad driver (it’s never you) or all of the lights being red, or sleet, snow, or maybe, a fire or flood!
We’ll don the masks and find more ways to put up with difficult personalities, or customers, or situations — clock watching until lunchtime… How is it only 9:30?
We might be self-employed and thus can possibly sleep until we’re done, and take an hour to rise, and another for breakfast, then get a couple of emails checked before lunch. Throughout the day, we could rack up a good 3 to 4 hours on social media. That’s work, right? Shared a few links. Got a few clicks. Boom.
We might do work that has us away from home and bed 8 to 12 to 16 hours a day, 5, 6, or 7 days a week. Does it fulfil, engage, or challenge you? Maybe meaningfulness doesn’t factor in for you. Why, then, do you drink, or have so much anger, depression, or need for escape — until at last, hopefully, you can sleep?
It’s all over pretty fast. Why are you here?
The point is that the idea of higher consciousness isn’t this far-off mystical thing or place; walking barefoot down the street for 5 to 10 minutes can alter your biochemistry and free up some cognitive and spiritual juices. Imagine what 30 to 90 minutes, daily, will give you!
These layers of energetic weight offered by our habits, beliefs, and resistance are a blanket we choose to imprison our awareness with… Or not.
If you’re afraid to even ask the question, you are missing out on so much of what this life can afford you: what do you truly want? What are you afraid of? What do you love? What do you need? Will you ask for it?
