Someone just sent me this quote and I wanted to share it with you because it rings true to me:
Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become your character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
We are a product of what we eat, what we think and what we feel. Revisiting awareness, what it its purpose; to bring attention to the bigger picture in our daily lives to better understand ourselves and thus make choices in life that reflect who we truly are. I had a teacher that once said awareness is enlightenment. Enlightenment only makes you more truly who you are. Imagine regular consciousness to be a flashlight in a dark theater, enlightenment would be turning on all the lights, it does not change the nature of the space, only your perception and understanding of it.
