Awareness defined: knowing something: having knowledge of something from having observed it or been told about it. 2. noticing or realizing something: knowing that something exists because you notice it or realize that it is happening. 3. knowledgeable: well-informed about what is going on in the world or about the latest developments in a sphere of activity ~ derivation: [ Old English gewær “very watchful” < wær“watchful” < Indo-European, “perceive, watch out for”]

Hinduism Unless you forget everything; Let Hari teach you, Or Brahman, born of the lotus, Or Shiva Himself! Unless you forget everything. You will never live in your heart. -Ashtavakra Gita 16:11  From “The Heart of Awareness: A Translation of the Ashtavakra Gita,” by Thomas Byrom, 1990.

Scientology The Triangle of Certainty of Awareness* Simplicity, it would be suspected, would be the keynote of any communications system which would deliver into a person’s hands the command of his own beingness. The simplicity consists of the observation of three universes. The first step is the observation of one’s own universe and what has taken place in that universe in the past. The second step would be observation of the material universe and direct consultation with it to discover its forms, depths, emptinesses and solidities. The third step would be the observation of other people’s universes or their observation of the material universe, for there are a multitude of viewpoints of these three universes. Where observation of one of these three is suppressed, hidden, denied, the individual is unable to mount, beyond a certain point, into certainty. These three universes are interactive to the degree that one raises all three by raising one. Thus any point on this triangle is capable of suppressing the other two points and any point of this triangle is capable of raising the other two points. ~L. Ron Hubbard – 0-8 Book Of Basics *Awareness, the ability to perceive the existence of.

“However many holy words you read,
However many you speak,
What good will they do you
If you do not act on upon them?”
