Klaus: Consciousness is inside, the inside, the content, the mentally processed, the mental shadow of the perceived, stored, accumulated. Awareness is outside, perception, the entire universe. Awareness is where I am not. KFA German forum
My own consciousness is composed entirely of processed memory. This is the same for you and for anyone else who is looking at this question. So our inner consciousness is put together by thought. This consciousness then talks about something called awareness which seems to be separate from and superior to anything to do with memory. Just see what is happening: instead of facing the bleak fact of its own impotence, thought is again busy in inventing something separate from itself towards which it can then move and aim for. In other words, awareness becomes a spiritual destination. And this processing is at the heart of the mess we make of our lives because it keeps thought at the centre of things. Can this processing stop altogether?
