Awareness

Awareness seems to be a simple, straight forward skill.
.
.
It takes daily, persistent practice to achieve any level of awareness.
.
.
Dissociation can be so imbedded in our daily existence, we do not see it, or seem to experience its subtle influence.
.
.
We judge and think way to much. We wander into thought about the past, judge whether we are worthy or unworthy, whether we are right or wrong.
.
.
This wandering fuels anxiety, depression, PTSD or any dissociative disorder.
.
.
We need to practice paying attention in every waking moment.
.
.
We can use our sight, hearing, smell and touch to connect to this present moment.
.
.
We can use our breath to calm our nervous system, to slow our mind and build our focus.
.
.
The body can go supersonic speed, but the mind loses awareness when it speeds up.
.
.
Notice the speed of the mind and the breath to become more aware of now.
.
.
Awareness will become habit and healing will increase over time.
