In pure awareness there is no dark only light
Any problems we have come from a lack of awareness. If our politicians were really conscious there would be no question about right and wrong, they would be able to make the right decision. . In fact, if everyone was really aware and conscious, the role of government would be very limited, because people would not depend on someone else to lead them..
playing with layers of the Flower of life, the art attracts attention to itself even in a crowded room due to its dynamic stillness.

Any problems we have come from a lack of awareness. If our politicians were really conscious there would be no question about right and wrong, they would be able to make the right decision. In pure awareness there is no dark only light. In fact, if everyone was really awake and conscious, the role of government would be very limited, because people would not depend on someone else to lead them.
Inspired by the book ‘The Power of Now’, by Ekhardt Tolle, the Sacred Geometry Symbol, ‘Flower of Life’ as a base pattern, the artist expresses the state of meditation, of dynamic stillness as expanded awareness & being in the now.

Art needs to go hand in hand with self expression. If this art or message reflects your point of view or interests then it has a place in your environment.
Expanded Awareness is part of ‘The Human Unity Story’ which is a self funded project to bring attention to Human Unity, through research and writings on the conscious evolution & 2012 phenomenon.
It is work in progress and soon will be out in the form of a coffee table book with messages of Human Unity. My interest is to ensure these messages are spread as far and as wide, hence costs for the art is kept at a minimum.
We live in the age of information, but even with all the knowledge of the world at our fingertips, what good does it really do us if we are not conscious and awake?
The problem is that knowledge essentially binds us, the more knowledge a person gains, the more psychologically asleep that he becomes. The more knowledge he gains the more entrenched his mind becomes in a certain way of thinking. He may think he is thinking outside of the box, it’s the same box; he just makes it look different.
“When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.”- Albert Einstein
Just really take a good look at the world around you; you will realize that most of the population is operating from a level where they are psychologically asleep. Today’s society has become extremely efficient at doing things with little to no awareness, we just run on auto pilot. Once you realize how much you really are operating on auto pilot in your day-to-day life, you will be able to search for ways to become more aware.
Think about the very first time you were learning to drive, remember how engaged you were? You could feel every movement you made, you were fully present in what you were doing, you where in a state of heightened awareness. After a few weeks all your motions where effortless, you could look at your rear view mirror, adjust your stereo, and change gears with very little awareness.
Levels Of Consciousness
Your mind has different levels of consciousness. First is your conscious mind, then behind your conscious mind is the subconscious mind. If you learn to pay close attention you can hear the subconsciousness’ whispers. Then behind the subconscious mind is the unconscious. The unconscious is who you really are, behind your thinking mind, behind your body, the essence of your very nature. Behind the unconscious is what Dr. Jung called the collective unconscious, which is the whole of humanity’s evolution until now.
In order to become more conscious and aware and rise above the unconscious state, you need to experience being alert and awake. This is something you cannot just simply understand logically or philosophically, because it will only remain as an intellectual understanding.
“the intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”- Albert Einstein
It is going to take a real effort to wake yourself up, to discover your true potential, to become aware that you are far more than what you appear to be.
How Do You Start Becoming More Aware?
You have to learn to become observant and watchful. Learn to observe and be a witness to every act you do, every thought that passes your mind. Watch every desire that bubbles up within you. Observe even seemingly little things like your gestures, walking, talking, breathing, eating, everything can be an opportunity to watch.
You will realize that the more watchful that you become, that your internal chatter will become less and less. Your thoughts become more manageable and you gain a new clarity. A clear mind is a happy mind. As you grow in your awareness, your inner growth will explode because you begin to let the deepest parts of your being rise to the surface.
You will also come to notice how much of your growth was being suppressed by the awareness of the whole (society) and dependent on others. At this lower level of awareness you observe how people mostly try and grow by means of arguing, simply trying to outwit, and out smart others on pure logic.
One day while drinking some coffee I observed two people arguing, the person who feels that he came out on top is puffed up in his ego, and all he did was make a brilliant logical explanation to satisfy his own desires. The other person now feels bitter towards the other, did not accept the other person’s point of view, and still chooses to keep his own beliefs.
I can see that both are oblivious to what actually happened. Nothing was accomplished, but in their minds they felt something was achieved. They were simply not aware of what was going on inside themselves, being lost on the inside is being lost on the outside.
Awareness Steps to Achieve Spiritual Growth
Step 1: The Body – learn to become aware of your body first. Learn to place your attention and sense your body’s energy from the inside out. Learn to feel its presence, its aliveness. You can begin by starting in small parts of the body, such as your hands, until your attention can encompass your whole body.
Step 2: Your Thoughts – Once you become observant of your body, expand your awareness to observe and watch your thoughts.
Step 3: Feelings and Emotions – When you are able to watch your thoughts, learn to watch your feelings and emotions.
When you are watchful of your body, thoughts, feelings, and emotions your awareness will begin to operate from a state of inner harmony.
Step 4: Aware of your own awareness – When you live a life of inner harmony, that harmony allows you to be in a position to become of aware of your own awareness.
When you are able to be aware of your own awareness you will realize how cunning the mind is, and how great it is at rationalizing. Rationalizing is not awareness, awareness means that whatsoever is happening in the moment is happening with complete consciousness, that you are fully present.
The problem lies in that all the mind can do is think of the past and imagine the future. To be present and totally aware is to be in the space of no thought, dropping your analytical mind. Also try and understand that dropping the mind does not mean to be in a vegetative state, it is simply a space where you move into a deeper depth of understanding and perspective.
Your mind is only able to work linearly, from point A to point B, from one thought to the next. If you move vertically that is a movement of consciousness, which is awareness.
Learn to continually bring your self to the present. When you catch yourself living in the past or imagining the future, bring your awareness back to the present moment. Do not feel bad when you realize you are not in the present, this is just a habit you need to gradually get out of until your new habit is being more in the present.
One important thing to remember also is to not make the mistake of constantly thinking “how can I be in the present moment”, because this involves thinking; this is a very delicate line.
Just learn to be a passive witness, which means you observe without judgment, and slowly you will fall into moments of beautiful silence. By constantly being in a state witnessing you will fall into the gaps between your thoughts.
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.Never lose a holy curiosity.” – Albert Einstein
