For me, to live an awakened life requires a constant vigilance of the inner workings of our psyche. It requires a deep commitment to a moment-by-moment awareness of our inner emotional tapestry. When we are aware of what is happening on the inside, we become aware of how we create the energy of things on the outside.
To live an awakened life means to commit to constantly look within all the while living in this material world.
How can I awaken consciousness?
In order to do this it attracts just the right teachings to us, in the form of our loved ones, our friends and life situations. So instead of rejected that which is unfamiliar, we — if we hold this belief system — enter gratitude for the teachings brought to us as we know that we are going to grow from them. When we begin to see life in these ways, we no longer feel like hapless victims in the hands of the other.
Instead, we see ourselves as the co-creators that we truly are. Many of you may have had an example of your own child crying uncontrollably, leaving you to feel helpless and anxious. You may have taken the crying personally and found yourself getting frustrated and reactive. However, if you were to have this perspective in mind, everything changes. You realize that your co-creation comes in how you react to the crying. In fact, anything you feel is yours and has nothing to do with the reality of your child crying. Obviously every parent would be concerned, but the exact reaction each parent has is idiosyncratic to their past experiences, their belief systems and how they were raised.
How we engage with the reality before is the part we play in co-creating it.

When we learn to harness our reactions in a conscious way, we are able to design the outcome of our reality. In this way, we create greater mastery over our lives. When we learn to be awakened to our own co-creation, every moment becomes an opportunity for expansion and enlightenment.
We feel endlessly blessed by the many ways life shows us how we need to develop to our highest expression of self.
But again, this requires that we be constantly vigilant about our thoughts, feelings and reactions. We need to always be aware of the choices we make, asking ourselves constantly: how can I turn this moment before me into a lesson for growth and greater awareness? I have observed a vast difference between those that live an awakened life and those that do not. Those that do live lives infused with purpose and meaning. Obviously, we already know that the basic thing is dissolving the Ego; that is unquestionable, and that is a matter you are not unaware of.
But, of course, we must help ourselves through different methods or procedures. Anything which helps us to awaken is useful.

This implies living in the state of alert in regard to our thoughts, gestures, actions, emotions, habits, words, etc. When you forget yourself you make very serious mistakes in life. For instance, if we forget ourselves before a drink of wine, what would be the result? We would not only drink a glassful, but we may also have many others and get drunk. So, it would be very bad to forget ourselves before a glassful of wine. What would happen if we forget ourselves before a person of the opposite sex?
If, for example, we forget ourselves before an insulter, we obviously end up insulting as well, and we would even fight against each other. Therefore, it is indispensable not to forget ourselves.
Awoken or Awakened?
That man walked and walked as he watched himself, as he observed himself, as he controlled his mind and his senses; that man walked everywhere. We mean that we must self-observe our feelings, our inner impulses, our sorrows, our emotions, our instincts, our habits, etc. We must watch our senses and our mind, because if we do not control our senses and our mind, our Consciousness falls asleep.
This is the second aspect of the key. For example, if you see a beautiful object, a suit, a ring, a perfume, a shop window, anything, but you are enchanted by that object you are seeing, what always happens is that your Consciousness falls asleep. Because you forgot yourself. When you see the object, you identify with it, and the poor Consciousness falls sound asleep.
We need to observe what surrounds us, the things which surround us, without being fascinated with them. It is urgent to comprehend that we must never forget ourselves A car may be very smart and fast; a film may be very exciting; a house may be very luxurious; yes, but why should we forget ourselves? Usually, when we see the objects around us there is a process of sleepiness; let us see:. A hypnotic force grasps the senses and directs all our attention towards that place.
Then you start dreaming in a grand manner of that suit, of the party where we would wear it for the first time, of the beautiful girl we would show it to, etc. All sorts of identification produce fascination and sleep. If you are not in a state of alert you identify with the multitudes; you are fascinated, and then comes the sleep; you shout, you throw stones, you do things that, under other circumstances, you would not do, not even for a million dollars.
Forgetting yourself is a mistake with incalculable consequences. Identifying with something is the height of stupidity, because that results in fascination and sleep. It is impossible to awaken our Consciousness if we forget ourselves, if we identify with something.
It is impossible for an aspirant to awaken Consciousness if he lets himself be fascinated, if he falls asleep. You are travelling somewhere on any city public transport. You have to leave the vehicle at a specific street; you do not know how, but the memory of a dear being comes to your mind; you identify with that memory; you become fascinated and then you start dreaming awake Good Heavens!
You realize that your Consciousness had been absent; you get off the vehicle and walk back to the corner where you should have got off. PLACE : Finally, you must watch every place in a careful way; even the well-known places: the drawing room, the bedroom; we must watch them as if they were something new.
What do I have to do with this place? Why have I come to this place, to this market, to this office, to this temple, etc.? When we observe a place, we must never forget the question of the seven dimensions of Nature. I had a very interesting experience that comes to my memory in this moment. It happened that some years ago I arrived at a house, went across a beautiful garden, passed through a room threshold and eventually entered a bureau, a law office.
I met a very smart lady before the desk; she.
