Consciousness-Object vs Space

Most of the time people’s lives are cluttered with things. Things to do, material things and things to think about. Their lives are one thing after another, because their minds are filled with cluttered thoughts of one thought after another.

This is the realm of object consciousness, which is the most dominant reality for many people and this is causing their life to be out of balance.

Have you heard the phrase, “Follow the middle path?” This basically means, practice balance in all areas of your life. Whenever there is too much focus on one area, an imbalance is created in us and our lives. Object consciousness needs to be balanced by awareness or space consciousness.

Awareness means you are not only conscious of worldly things, but you are also aware of your own presence. When using awareness, you will be able to sense your inner stillness in the background while things are happening in the foreground.

Awareness not only gives freedom from ego, but also from dependency on the things of this world.

Awareness gives you perspective. Indications of having lost your perspective is when you are upset about events, a person or situation.

Affirmations that can restore your awareness

It will not always be this way (I use this during stressful situations)

This too will pass (My mother use to say this)

I am never upset for the reason I think

Life gets better every day

What affirmations do you use to bring yourself back to being aware or staying connected to your inner being?

  1. Every dark cloud has a silver lining.

    It’s always darkest right before dawn.

    The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything that comes their way.

  2. “This too shall pass” and I don’t quite remember the wording, but something like “You’re doing now what you’re supposed to be doing” or “What is happening now is exactly what’s supposed to happen.”

    And of course, everything happens for a reason!
