Changes in conscious awareness

When a change occurs in your life it is because something in your life was not working, and you sought to change that. You may not think that you did — you may not have any conscious awareness that you did — but you did. (Neale Donald Walsch)

Sometimes the words of Neale Donald Walsch make me feel slightly uneasy. Mostly, it’s because I have the urge to correct his grammar or tweak his syntax. This time, however, it’s what he’s actually saying that I want to tweak.

It makes no sense to consider “a change in your life” without reference to the ever-evolving context within which we all “live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28, RV).

We do not — and cannot — consider one life independent from Life. Since we have no choice but to “go with the flow”, it isn’t helpful to think in terms of an individual assuming they have single-handedly caused, or brought about, any change they experience in their life.

Conscious awareness — or mindfulness, if you prefer — is about being present, noticing the thoughts and feelings, the ideas and sensory experiences … and going with the flow.

Your only reality is This Moment, right here, right now. (Neale Donald Walsch)

Today, stop what you are doing. Just stop. Look deeply into the moment. Experience the pure energy of life moving into and through your body. (Neale Donald Walsch)
