Am down with a cold. Feeling very unaware of most things outside of the discomfort of a sore throat, raspy cough and an aching head. But still, why not just move ahead with the reflections on being aware…
Does being aware have a color?
Instinctively, what comes to mind is transparency. Any color, but transparent, not being a hindrance for going past it, through it.
A symbol…. does being aware have a symbol? Just the one?
I don’t know. Possibly the third eye? But then again, isn’t than an old symbol, with a lot of different connotations, with awareness (increased perception) being one?
What is the language of awareness? Does it exist?
Or will we – together – make the language of being aware come to form?
The language of awareness cannot be a language of but one component, such as speech. A language of awareness must be a multifaceted language utilizing all senses, opening up for an experience of sound and silence, visual and intuitive aspects as well as movement and touch. If it exists? Who knows… But yeah, I would like to think it’s out there and probably has since the beginning of time. Not sure if it’s come fully into form yet. It’s more like something wanting to happen, popping up here and there, in quick bursts of connection and awareness. Wanting to be seen, felt, heard, sensed by a larger number of humankind. Do you think we can help it come into form, making it easier for more people to discover it?
Are there any rituals connected to being aware?
Or might we – together – create some?
I’m certain there are a multitude of rituals. Some widely shared and spread across the globe, some might be absolutely unique to a specific individual.
A wise woman told me yesterday of the eternal circle of expansion -> stability -> expansion -> stability and so on. She explained how there’s expansion, with intake, new learnings, input and information, expanding in all senses…. and how there’s a need for all those new sensations to stabilize and sink in, enabling me to become grounded in what I know. And once stability has been reached, a new expansion phase can begin. I’m sure we could find rituals for both phases, expansion as well as stability, but am equally certain we could come up with new rituals around these phases.
Personally, I know I have some rituals that have definitely helped me be more aware, and I’m doing one of those things right this minute. Blogging for me, is both a self-coaching tool and a way for me to reflect and discover myself, my beliefs, my understanding. Blogging is one way for me to stabilize what I take in during the day.
Do you have any favorite rituals you’d like to share with me?
