Don't try and become conscious, simply allow beingness to emerge. Trying to become conscious will have the opposite effect of what you are attempting to achieve. You will become identified as the one attempting to become as conscious as possible, creating for yourself another imagined identity. Conscious awareness is already who we are, not something we become. Being that conscious awareness is not something we do as such, it is who we are when all the pretenses fall away.
“Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, Love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life moves.” ― Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
