Increase Awareness With One Simple Question

There are many ways we can increase our own personalawareness about our life and what we want to make out of it.Yet, we seldom ask the question, "Why am I doing this?" Byconsciously becoming more aware of what we do and why, wecan then make phenomenal changes. Usually in leaps andbounds. This includes losing weight, being happier, workingin a job we love, and all the rest of the things that mostof chase.

Here are four easy ways you can begin increasing your ownpersonal awareness. These methods are around you all daylong and you will not need to do anything difference exceptslow down and ask the question. Further down I'll explainwhy.

1. Listen to others communicate. It is easier for us toname what we don't want than what we do want. Since this isthe case, by listening to others converse, we can thendecide what we don't want. What language we don't want touse. What beliefs we don't want to have. What...etc. wedon't want to have. It is important to not stop there ifyou are finding your awareness through the don't door. Ifyou are not coming through that door and enter through the'I want' door then by listening to others communicate youcan decide what you do want in your life. Listen to others-- what they say and how they say it. Take notes on what youagree with and disagree with, or even the neutral line --what you aren't sure about.

2. Read a variety of publications. We read all the time,yet what is our awareness from what we've read. If you readbefore bed time in a tired numb state it's difficult to beaware of anything. Do you read only work material that isdry and boring? Do you only read science fiction or someother particular genre? What does this type of reading helpyou become more aware of in your life?

3. Listen to radio and television talk shows. By listeningto others communication we learn to formulate our ownopinions, understand our own awareness in the world, in ourown life, and what we want and don't want. You don't alwaysneed to agree, in fact, by disagreeing with the speakeryou're awareness is even more heightened.

4. News. Listening to the news or reading the news canincrease your awareness about the world, your community, andother people's opinions. This results in an increasedawareness of what you want and don't want.

Probably by now you have guessed why it's important to wantto increase your awareness. If we live in a vacuum then theair inside us and all around us gets stale. Eventuallythere isn't any air left and we die from the toxicity of ourown breath. Awareness stimulates us into knowing andunderstanding ourselves at levels we could never do on ourown. But it can only do so if we ask the question, "Whatnew awareness are we taking away from this?" Yet, we mustalso listen for and hear the answer. When was the last timeyou asked the question?
