Hello All, I was wondering this morning. The Awareness that is aware of our breath and Aware of our Rising anger. Does it have a Voice? Can we build a relationship with it? If this awareness is Source Herself how do we distinguish that voice from the chatter in our mind?
Welcome to the forum Sione.
To wonder if we can build a relationship with awareness is a bit out of context. I would suggest that you begin to know Awareness as your very own self. That part of us which would endeavor to build a relationship with awareness is that perspective one holds that we are somehow separate from it. We are not - accept in the experience of the belief that we are.
Rather than a relationship, I suggest developing a 'familiarity' with awareness as your own essence. Frequent moments of presence awareness, free of thought, is key to that familiarity. In time with repeated experience, familiarity will grow. Feelings of wordless appreciation of most anything is indeed Divine.
The 'voice' of awareness is more our feeling nature. That voice comes as insight (sight from within) and inspiration (In spirit). Identification with concepts and thoughts are built upon beliefs we adopt as truths throughout our lifetimes. Awakening, in part, is the recognition of this thought identification which then frees us to consider the/our underlying awareness that holds all thoughts within it.
Identification however, is not without value. It is rather ubiquitous in this human species. Identification creates opportunities of experience that would not exist if we were always clear on the larger reality - and experience is the point of this human adventure. Of whatever we accumulate in this lifetime, it is only our experiences that we maintain once we leave these bodies.
