Are you aware of your awareness? I call it room awareness. I sold Time Share for years and we would train our Sales People about room awareness. If you ever been to a Time Share Presentation you know that everyone sits in the same room at different tables and each table is close to every other table. So we were tell our Sales people that they had to be aware of their surroundings, in other words, be aware of how loud you speak, where the other tables were in their presentation, were they taking about the price, each table might have a different price depending on how much they traveled, how much money they had and so on. A salesmen without room awareness could lose a sale for someone else.

Most people go thru life without room awareness. They are so wrapped up in their own world or so stress out under the burden of life that they have no idea of their surroundings. Are you like that?

You see them everywhere, people driving and not aware of there surroundings, people talking on cell phones loudly in public places with no idea that everyone can hear them. Not being aware is life on automatic, in other words not thinking, just reacting. It’s everywhere. This is living in the Bicameral Mind. We all do it, but do you realize that you do it? If we can’t take the time to think about our surroundings then how can we take time to think for ourselves?

In order to go from bicameral mind to a conscious mind we must be aware. Aware of our surroundings, what we say, who we listen to, don’t just hear things listen, figure out the why, it is so easy to follow someone down their path and so hard to follow your own. People who follow are not aware, they are not aware that they follow, they don’t know what they don’t know. How do we get there if we don’t know where we are going?

Becoming aware is the start to conscious. How do we become aware? We start to think for ourselves. We start to figure out the why. It is making the commitment to yourself to make the change.

Its integrated thinking, it’s figuring out when a politician say something, why is he saying that. Go beyond just the words, go into the words. Just keep asking why. Question everyone. Question yourself. Think and then think again.

So stand up go to the window and open it and shout I’m mad and I’m not going to take it anymore.
