This is the first lesson in a 10-part series.
We harmonize our actions into our Higher Self when we follow the prodding of our intuition and our conscience. Each day we flow into and out of the various following forms of conscious and unconscious awareness - all impacting and forming our overall state of consciousness. And when we live our lives by following our conscience consistently, we grow into our fullest potential of conscious awareness.
Thoughts running through our mind, upon which we choose to act-consciously by evaluating the whole situation-or from our automatic subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind being our storehouse of past experiences and reactions; programmed responses that are colored by our physical energy, attitude, and emotion of the moment.
Watching and participating in events without the limits our physical body, morality, or rational mind impose on us in our waking state.
Without being preoccupied in our mind's ramblings, our physical body rejuvenates.
Like its name - super - in this state of consciousness we can find out what we need to know to function optimally in the moment. It is our lifeline connecting us to the aspect of our Creator/Sustainer living within us. Being consciously aware in this state moves us into the 'director's seat' of our life. And, as the conscious director of our actions we can make use of the various options to produce a beautiful 'play' of life.
