Consciousness is an indispensable condition for us to recognize the Ego and reach Awakening on our Journey. Otherwise it is not possible to observe ourselves. The witnessing, observing Presence should always be there.

The mind will never understand anything that reaches beyond it. But it tries. In this way, though, it will explain everything from the separate aspect that it currently occupies in the time-space continuity.

When one is able to reach beyond that separate focus point and identification with the mind, that the person will also recognize this conditioned state and will also be able to reach beyond that, too. In that case, the individual will not identify with the mind, but increasingly with the Consciousness (Witnessing Presence). The Presence will gain dominance over the mind to an increasing extent, and will be expressed through the mind.Frank M.

"What is the evidence for me that you are now asleep, and as a citizen of a dreamland you dream that you are awake?

First, that you are not present. To be present means that you are fully alert, attentive, and conscious in the present moment. Whatever you do, you do that fully consciously, you focus your entire attention on that particular activity. Or, do you feel free to declare that you are present in every moment of your life?

The case with you (and with the majority of people) is that you are not awake in the sense described above. You are careless most of the time, as a large segment of your attention is bound by dealing with events of your thoughts, events of past and plans for future and your own self. 

Psychological time therefore displaces the moment of the present, or subordinates it to past or future.You therefore perform the overwhelming majority of your daily activities mechanically. Your attention only becomes more intensive when you meet someone or deal with something who or that you find interesting, or useful in some way. Or the opposite: the person or thing may do harm to you in some way." Frank M. Wanderer

"Consciousness, which has been sound asleep under the spell of identification with the forms and shapes for thousands of years, is slowly waking up in our days. There is an increasingly powerful alarming impulse, and the number of people sensitive to the wake up call is getting bigger and bigger. 

The effects of this impulse, waking us up from our dream of identification with the forms and shapes is felt by everybody, sometimes even several times a day. But many of us are unaware of what we actually experience; all we feel is that successes achievable in the world are less and less attractive for us. We recognize that behind earthly successes and failures there has to be something deeper, something more profound in our life." Frank M. Wanderer

"Pick a flower you particularly like and place it so that you can focus your attention easily on it.

Smile.When you are smiling, the muscles of your face relax, your resistance against the current moment ceases, and you become open and accepting. Loosen up, watch your breathing, how the air passes in and out through your nostrils.

While you are monitoring your breathing, share the rest of your attention with the world. Pay attention to yourself, your breathing and gently scan the flower with your look. Notice its graceful stem, the gentle arches of the leaves, the soft shapes of the petals.

Discover the variety of the colors and shades – let the flower cast a spell on you. Realize, that it is really nothing else, than another manifestation of life with its unmatched and unique beauty. Let the observation of the flower absorb you but do not forget about paying attention to your breathing. Observe the flower without feeling any pressure." Ervin K. Kery

"When you need to do something that requires your creativity, then thoroughly study the details and when you feel your mind is “fed” with the information, retreat into silent, observing consciousness.

Let your mind build the overall picture in your unconscious, let it sculpture and paint it – let it work it out. When the desire to act overcomes you again, when you feel that it is time to intervene in the events, then ask this question with full consciousness: What do I have to do? – and wait for ideas to emerge from your, which are born in the creative, intelligent space of consciousness. Consciously do what you have to do with full attention, then retire to the silent yourself for an inspiring recharge, then if you have some more to do, do it.

Your life will become a pulsing between creative outbursts and peaceful contemplations.

This is when you live a life, in which you know-feel the depth of existence: “Yes, I am. I exist. I am
thankful!”  Ervin K. Kery
