Becoming Aware That You Are Aware
Words by Lead Coordinator, Kokayi Nosakhere
We are moving fast. If you are keeping up, the relevancy of these ideas will become more and more pronounced as we continue. The basic foundation has been set. Beginning with self-love, we have given you a powerful formula to directly impact your human experience by choice.
If you have not fully paid attention, we ask that you please go to “Food Fit for the Mentally Dead” and read forward.
Every word in this blog is written with purpose. It is essential that an army of spiritually in tuned individuals rise up to address the physical hunger of 31 million American children. The written word is the best vehicle for finding those brave enough to do this work.
We firmly believe that as YOU are affirmed and reminded of who and what the human being is, YOU will develop out of your animal desire into your human nature.
You are being asked by us to “turn on”: to “be or born” your given genius, so that we can all see it. In this manner, you will learn something about yourself.
That something about yourself is called “knowledge of Self.” It is the finding out by you of why you do what you do when you do it. What are your triggers? What past memories prevent you from being whole and need to be addressed? What strengths have you developed to perform? Why are you the way you are?
Now, I am not suggesting that you fall into a mental trap of ego-rationalization. This is no different than “intellectual acceptance.” Once you begin loving yourself, it feels so good that you may start to believe that you are the “only one” awake in your circle of friends. As you observe yourself, you will gain insight into your own personality, which will give you insight into others. As you practice E + R = O, you will control the number of positive and negative experiences you have. The fact that others appear to have little, or no, control over what happens to them will become evident.
All this feeds the ego. The ego is not the Self. The ego will justify itself by helping you rationalize yourself as somehow special. No, it was not the education of this blog and your own discipline to make humanity more clear in your mind. It was YOU. You possess some quality of personhood that others lack.
Which is a lie. You are aware of yourself now. That is all. Everyone who becomes more aware of who and what they are: human, has this experience.
You are human. You are apart of the human family. The human family is bigger than your individual Self. The human form has walked the Earth for millions of years. You are apart of a great stream of Life.
You are the movement of consciousness.
Please choose to remember that our brains are older than our personalities. Your brains is not your personality, nor the psychological construction called your persona or ego.
Our society uses the terms “brain” and “mind” interchangeably. For the sake of this blog, let’s not do that. Here, those are two different entities. The Self is divine. It is above the mind. The brain is Its physical shadow.
