Bay of Islands, New Zealand

What is awareness?  It is our attention without judgement, thought or belief.

If someone touches our arm, we put our attention there.  We also may think: "That hurts," "That feels good," "Why is this person touching me," "This person likes me," "Someone is trying to get my attention," and so on.

When someone touches our arm and we put our attention there, without any assumptions or judgment, that is pure awareness.  When we are in a state of pure awareness, we are in a state of grace.  Another way of saying it is that we are one with the mind of God.

We look at the world through a prism of our belief structures.  It is time to take off the blinders.  We can expand our awareness by being present and surrendering all of our judgments, thoughts and beliefs.

Let's surrender to the present moment.
