No. 1 – Awareness of Your Thoughts

Awareness is knowing what’s going on inside and all around you.

Awareness is knowing what’s going on inside and all around you.

Today we are only going to talk about what is going on in your mind.

The job of your mind is to analyse what is going on so that you can decide what you should do.

Try this, for just 2 minutes, sit still, close your eyes and focus all of your attention on the traffic going through your mind. Please do this now – close your eyes and focus inside your mind.

Did you notice that you searched first for information from outside: you listened and sniffed to try to discover what was happening in your environment? You wanted to connect and to know that you are safe. But then, once there was nothing coming from outside, you started to focus on the traffic going through your mind. Perhaps you looked back and saw something that happened recently, or perhaps you looked forward and imagined what might happen in a certain scenario, or perhaps you started to plan the way you would like something to work out.

Thoughts are going through your mind all the time. You cannot stop them, it is the nature of your mind that it keeps searching, imagining, planning, deciding and changing its decisions.

The more conscious you are of what is happening in your mind the better will be your ability to direct your thoughts in the direction in which you would like your life to go.

No. 2 – Awareness of Your Senses

You become aware of what is happening in the world around you by using your senses. You do this without being conscious of what you are doing.

Your ability to see, hear, touch, taste and smell connect you to your environment. You might like to think of yourself as being a “mobile sensing machine”. You move through the world with your sensing antennae always alert, always picking up signals from your current location.

Your senses are designed to keep you safe by alerting you to danger. They also keep you informed of what is happening in your world.

As you walk along the pavement in the town you see the other pedestrians, you see what is displayed in shop windows, you see the traffic on the street beside you.

As you pass the coffee shop you smell the freshly ground coffee.

When you enter the coffee shop and buy a coffee you taste the flavour on your tongue.

When it starts to rain you feel the raindrops on your head.

You hear the raucous sound of the flashy sports car as it speeds up the street,

You senses are always alert, always guarding you, always alerting you to opportunities
