We recently published a passage from the legendary Conversations With God author, Neale Donald Walsch’s most recent book, The Only Thing That Matters. Here is another inspiring passage from that book that we loved as it really speaks to anyone who is on a spiritual journey… so we assumed this would be right up your alley!
“What is occurring in your life right now is that your Awareness is growing – and now you are hearing its voice.
In strictest terms a ‘growth’ in your Awareness is not possible. Your Awareness is what it is; it does not ‘grow’ larger and larger. That’s because your Awareness rests within your Soul, and your Soul does not get bigger, or in some way ‘more,’ than it always was and is now.
It is your Mind that expands. For easy understanding, it could be said that Awareness rests in the Soul and Attention resides in the Mind.
So to put what is occurring in your life another way, you are now paying greater Attention to your Awareness. It’s one thing to be ‘aware,’ but it is another thing altogether to pay attention to what your Soul is aware of (instead of ignoring it, which most people do most of the time).
This mixture of the two is what might be called Consciousness. When your Mind pays attention to your Soul, and your Mind and Soul thus carry the same data, hold the same idea, and possess the same perspective, you might be said to be fully conscious.
So, in real terms, it is your Consciousness that is expanding as the Awareness of your Soul comes to the Attention of your Mind.”
When you start out on your spiritual path, it can be a bumpy road as you become more aware of you who are (good and bad) and where you want to go – however it’s this kind of awareness that propels us forward to greatness.
