Even the stone has a kind of awareness embedded in its composition. But true awareness at the human level begins when we ask ourselves, “Why can I not love?” Then our progress really begins and we learn to master certain practices that are necessary for developing awareness. These include: lessening need by becoming non-attached; freeing ourselves from the illusions that create suffering; practicing discipline and discrimination; and doing our spiritual practices so that more and more of the universal mind can flow through us. But when we capture the totality of God, then we have truly found non-attached love. Then we are truly aware.
