Life is all about gaining consciousness of self in the world as a physical, mental, spiritual, emotional being. Training begins immediately at birth, yet awareness of this most universal process often arrives late in life or not at all. And so awareness becomes the goal, that which leads to full consciousness.
Awareness may begin to be achieved by staying present in each moment of each day, knowing that it is all that matters, for all else has either already happened or has not yet happened and possibly never will and so has no importance.
Stay in the moment. It’s all that matters at this moment.
