Practice Conscious Awareness.


The average human looks without seeing,
listens without hearing,
touches without feeling,
eats without tasting,
moves without physical awareness
inhales without awareness of odor or fragrance,
and talks without thinking.
- Leonardo da Vinci

The question is not what you look at, but what you see.
- Henry David Thoreau


It is worth the effort to pay attention and to think deeply -- every day. Your surroundings may be the same as yesterday, but you are not the same, so use your new eyes to see your world newly each day.

There is no evil and there are
no evil forces in the world.
There are only people of awareness,
and there are people who are fast asleep -
and sleep has no force.
The whole energy is in the hands of the awakened people.
And one awakened person can awaken the whole world.
One lighted candle can make millions of candles lighted
without losing it's light.
- Osho

Do the small things of life with a relaxed awareness.
When you are eating, eat totally -
chew totally, taste totally, smell totally.
Touch your bread, feel the texture.
Smell the bread, smell the flavor.
Chew it, let it dissolve into your being.
- Osho

Look closely... See with new eyes...
Don't just pass by what is familiar without a thought.
Pay attention and look closely.
There is beauty - there is discovery -
there in a whole new world hiding
beneath the face of the familiar.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Affirmation:
I practice conscious awareness.
