When I am asked “How do I know that I am awake”. or “How to meditate”. Yes I smile at that question with great JOY.
My answer to this is the following: you know you are awake when you MARVEL at all that you are, at all that you do – from doing dishes to taking care of the dying and ill – when you are so present in each moment that you are experiencing that moment to your fullest potential. To me that’s awakened one ❤ .
There are people who meditate a lot but yet have not achieved such state of being.
It is all about how open you are and how willing and how well do you let go of EXPECTATIONS, JUDGMENTS AND ASSUMPTIONS, how OK you are with being in the MOMENT.
You don’t have to be in deep meditation to leave your body and experience wakeful moments of awareness. Being in the moment, fully present wherever you are, and stopping, slowing down and feeling and absorbing, just BEING in that precious moment of here and now – that is the state of true wake and expanded awareness. Paying attention to the small details and pausing in that moment of beingness.
I love those wakeful moments of full awareness of who I truly am. And as you have some moments, from moment to moment you are in walking meditation. You are in awareness of your own truth which is always self evident in the moment of NOW.
Blessings of the light
