The idea that we can be self-aware, that we are not just a victim of our own desires and impulses, is what makes us human. This is why we need to find ways to challenge our minds and bodies so we can be more aware and able to make wise choices in our lives.
In the world of science fiction, we often refer to this concept as “self-awareness,” which literally means “the knowledge that you are aware.” In our world, we often define self-awareness as “being able to control our own actions.” While this is a nice starting point, we’re not really talking about that.
In any case, being aware is not always easy. When we’re very young, not only does our awareness of our body’s actions fall to the wayside, but we don’t even know that we are aware. We don’t even know that we exist (at least in our own minds). We tend to just automatically assume that we’re aware. We do not know that we are aware.
This is a very deep concept. At least in our culture. As an adult, our knowledge of our own actions falls away and we can go on living unaware of our actions for any length of time. Our awareness does not exist in the same way that we can go on living unaware of our actions.
In our culture we tend to forget that we are aware. We tend to forget that we exist and that we act and react and learn and work. This is a major problem, especially in America. Our society has taught us that we are aware. We are, in a way. Most of the time. However, when your awareness goes away, you do not know that you are aware. This can easily happen to someone who has lost their ability to remember their actions.
This is a very important point. As you know, we have many ways of knowing in some situations. We forget that we are aware. It’s the same for every other group of people.
We are all different, and many of us do not have the same type of awareness as the rest of the world. However, we do have many ways of knowing. We could be aware of our own actions, our own thoughts, and our own feelings. We could also be aware of the world around us. We could be aware of the color of our skin, or our eyes, or the size of our nose. We could also be aware of our body.
We could be aware of our bodies. We could be aware of our bodies’ movements, the shape of our bodies, the way we sit, the way we stand, the way we walk, the way we breathe. We could be aware of all the different things we do as humans. We could be aware of our bodies’ temperature, the temperature of the room we are in, and the state of our bodies after doing something.
Now we know what we can do. This is our most powerful gift. It is the one thing that makes us feel powerful, like we have a purpose to our existence. I’m pretty sure we all would agree that it’s not always easy to be aware of our bodies and our environment in the moment.
We all know that we are constantly aware of our surroundings, but what about that last moment before we are conscious is the most difficult. We are often aware of our surroundings only at the end of a movie or the last seconds of a video game, but in our own minds at the moment of waking up. A simple thought can have a drastic impact on our experience and how we react to the world.
