What does it mean to be awake? Because, the thing is- if you’ve had one spiritual awakening that was for real, you also experienced the darkness that inevitably follows after, involving not just awareness, but acceptance and forgiveness.

Wakefulness is not an event, but a process, a skill. To be awake is to be aware, thinking for ourselves, the master of our own attention. What we give our attention to is what we become, what we embody. Be wary of what is distracting you, and ask yourself who benefits? Notice how good you feel when you put your attention in the right places. Invest in that which is nourishing, uplifting, invigorating, exciting, stimulating, and fulfilling. 

Because within presence, there is pleasure. The senses are heightened. Our minds are lit up, engaged, hungry for information, inspired. This is the state we want to be in.  

There are many ways to practice this state: meditation, yoga, running, rock climbing, coding, painting, writing, any form of creation or self-expression.  Because of the culture we live in, where things are immediate and distraction is basically now an integral part of daily life, being present and aware is something that we need to practice.

(Sidenote and shameless plug: The yoni egg practice is one of the most effective methods of cultivating  this state of heightened awareness and arousal. It is a way to practice the art of being in the state of arousal, or wakefulness, to be truly experiencing your life, and not simply a passive observer. Your sexual energy (or your chi/prana) is your creative energy, and your body is a factory that makes it. The yoni egg practice is the art of accessing this energy and using it to improve your lifes and reality.)
