Awareness: Coming Out of the Darkness and Into the Light
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Evolution is a process of waking up to greater levels of reality. Waking up requires we become mindful of where we are unconscious, or asleep, to what is. As we enter the Aquarian age and more expansive frequencies, the light is available for us to see more than in times past – if we open our eyes and are willing to look.
This is not as easy as it may sound. In effect, we have been asleep for generations upon generations. Unconsciousness and a limited perception of reality has become imbedded, not only into our belief systems, but our very DNA. In addition, like a frozen limb coming back to life, the process of waking up can be a painful one. Waking up results in the awareness of the heartlessness imbuing our world and our unwitting participation in it. The resulting guilt and shame tend to drive us right back into denial and unconsciousness.
How can we break this nonproductive cycle? What is required to embrace the light and remain present? What can help us move out of the darkness of times past and evolve into our potential?
With us this hour to explore this process of awakening is Loch Kelly, author of the highly acclaimed, “The Way of Effortless Mindfulness.” Loch is a graduate of Columbia University and has been a leading meditation teacher, psychotherapist, and seminar leader for more than 25 years. Loch has worked in community mental health and counseled family members after 9/11. Founder of the nonprofit Open-Hearted Awareness Institute, Loch collaborates with neuroscientists at Yale, the University of Pennsylvania, and NYU, to study how awareness training can enhance compassion and wellbeing.
