What is consciousness?
A simple way to look at it, as I’m all about making things simple, is that it’s an experience of being in a relaxed state of heightened awareness, on all levels, where your mind is quiet, yet gently, softly, and easily focused on what is going on in and around you right here and now.
It’s about surrendering to, being and staying in the present moment, not trying so hard, releasing all judgments and expectations, and learning how to be more fully engaged in life, what is showing up, and how you’re showing up.
How can you embrace more consciousness in your life today?
Beautiful….the Sacred Feminine. Thank you Amanda for this powerful share. Love it!
Gotta love being telepathically connected so that when you send out a strong message, it gets heard. Miss Bruno heard me today, as I had seen this post this morning from Jon Rappoport and intended to post it, but had other things at the time to tend to. So it wasn’t a surprise when she posted it for me, and as she shares, “This is a long, richly formatted article, but worth the read for anyone who’s ever wanted to create art and/or wondered if they’re ‘crazy’.” Being an artist since birth and having wondered the latter, this spoke to that voice I used to hear. My favorite part that Jon shares, in mirror to what I have personally discovered through my “crazy” 😉 life, is this: “The first artist was the first alchemist.
So it is with all art. You can transmute your own past, your own experience, your own knowledge, your own emotions into works of imagination.
Art is a spiritual path.
From its dynamic perspective, everything that has ever happened to you can take on absolutely new meaning.
This also happens to be the goal of all therapies.
But with art, the goal is fulfilled.
It is no exaggeration to say that the artist can reinvent his past.
Civilizations rise and fall, come and go, and their fate is decided by untold millions of people who refrain from taking the path of the artist.
Ordinary life as we know it doesn’t resolve into a grand solution. It never has. Through alchemical persuasion, however, it can. And that alchemy is art.” The path of the artist, to me, is about co-creating your life from your imaginative heart and seeing it as the work of art that it symbolically is. There’s a lot of insightfully woven info in his post to explore when you have some time.
