Building consciousness in meditation is much more than simply learning how to develop deeper attention. One Mind Dharma is all about learning how to attract the light of consciousness to all procedures, customs, attitudes, and beliefs that have averted aware detection.
It’s all about taking a closer look at you… especially the unconscious components of yourself.
The subconscious mind is also, by definition, unconscious… or outside of mindful awareness.
This can make several things in life a real obstacle since the subconscious mind (the seat of emotion, motivation, energy, etc.) can’t be readily detected.
Fortunately, there’s a way to get around this. The impacts of the subconscious mind could be understood during your lifetime if you understand how to look. Among the fundamental abilities of meditation is consciousness. Paying attention to the arrangement of head, or the arrangement of what happens on your life is going to be among the very telling experiences of your lifetime.
Why should you create greater awareness of these hidden aspects of yourself?
The puzzle of self is really intriguing to unravel. As soon as you start to dig underneath the surface, you won’t ever find another mystery more intriguing than that which exists only beneath your senses.
As you start to unravel this puzzle, you may obtain a really rare form of calmness. You may understand human character not only from an academic or outside perspective. You’ll have noticed it from all angles. You may understand from firsthand experience, by a detached 2nd person perspective, and by the consciousness that while animal nature is part of you… you’re also something higher!
How do you build this consciousness?
Begin to listen to external and internal experiences without using judgment.
Sit inside this space of enlarged consciousness for 5 minutes or more if you want.
