Awareness Cannot Be Changed, Only Thoughts Can

By Pamela J. Wells




The illusory self, the ego, can’t stand being judged by others. Awareness doesn’t care one way or the other. It is not the mind, so it doesn’t think or analyze things. If someone is saying something about you, you are aware of what they are saying. You do not need to add any thoughts or opinions to it, to identify yourself with it, or to begin judging the other person so you do not feel so bad about what they said about you. If you are aware of what they said and don’t become attached to it, you stay in awareness. Your peace is not disturbed. You are still in the same state of being that you were before. Nothing has changed. Nothing external to you can affect you. Awareness cannot be changed, only thoughts can. Release the thoughts and remain in awareness.

Great description of how to remain in awareness, because that is not always easy to do. Thank you for the reminder Pamela.
