We witness, observe, and record apparent processions of experience.
But even in awareness itself, nothing actually happens.
Awareness merely registers what is being experienced; it has no effect on it.
Awareness is the all-encompassing attractor field of unlimited power identical with life itself.
And there is nothing the mind believes that is not erroneous at a higher level of awareness.
From: “Power vs. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior” (2012) , Chapter 20: The Evolution of Consciousness, p. 266
What if a few moments of contemplation bear wonderful fruits?
I love the phrase 'attractor field' - which part calls your attention?

The experience of the presence of God is available and within at all times, but awaits choice. That choice is made only by surrendering everything other than peace and love to God.
In return, the Divinity of the Self reveals Itself as ever present—but not experienced—because it has been ignored or forgotten, or one has chosen otherwise.
From: “The Eye of the I: From Which Nothing is Hidden” (2002), Chapter 4: The Basics—Rediscovery of The Pristine State, p. 48
When Is The Future?
To choose to experience the presence of God occurs outside time.
It is therefore nowhere in the future; it is available only in the present.
No other condition is necessary or even possible because the present moment is permanent; it never changes; it never disappears into yesterday or tomorrow.
In fact, it is inescapable. Everyone is actually safe in the exact moment of now.
By observation, it will become apparent that the only thing that seems to change is appearance.
The now stands still; the screen is permanent. Although a movie script changes and a story unfolds, even then it can do so only within the precise instant of now.
‘Now-ness’ is the primordial, overreaching, all-powerful, unchangeable, and absolute requirement to experiencing.
It is the essence of awareness of being and existence.
It is impossible to exist anywhere at all except in the drastic, radical reality of now.
This instant is all there is.
One’s own consciousness as Self is the only Eye by which anything can be experienced or known.
The inner sense of reality is bestowed by the Self on the ‘outer’ surroundings, which is what makes them seem real.
The sense of realness is therefore a projection of consciousness by the self, originating from the Self.
One is therefore not the witness of a ‘real’ world; one is actually the source of its seeming reality.
The world is actually entertainment. Like amusement, it is meant to be worn lightly.
Heaven is within and is revealed by awareness.
The world is merely an appearance.
Its melodrama is an artifice of the distorted sense of perception. It leads one to think that the world is large, powerful, and permanent and that the Self is small, weak, and transitory; exactly the opposite is true.
Without belief in its appearance as defined by perception, the world we thought was real disappears.
When one chooses to be at one with the inner, ever-present potentiality of joy and peace, the world transforms into a humorous amusement park, and all the drama is seen to be just drama.
The option for truth, peace, and joy is always available, although seemingly buried behind an ignorance and nonawareness that results from having chosen other options as a habit of thought.
The inner truth reveals itself when all other options are refused by surrender to God.
From: “The Eye of the I: From Which Nothing is Hidden” (2002), Chapter 4: The Basics, pp. 48–49

Step 1: “We admitted we were powerless over the ego—that our lives had become unmanageable.“
Step 2: “Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.”
Step 3: “Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.”
Step 4: “Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.”
Step 5: “Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.”
Step 6: “Were entirely ready to have God remove all of these defects of character.”
Step 7: “Humbly ask Him to remove our shortcomings.”
Step 8: “Made a list of all the persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.“
Step 9: “Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.”
Step 10: “Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.”
Step 11: “Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our consciousness contact with God as we understand Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.“
Step 12: “Having a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs.”
From Dr. Hawkins’ August 2003 Lecture 4, Enlightenment; adapted from AA’s 12 Step program.

In this interconnected universe, every improvement we make in our private world improves the world at large for everyone. We all float on the collective level of consciousness of mankind so that any increment we add comes back to us. We all add to our common buoyancy by our efforts to benefit life. What we do to serve life automatically benefits all of us because we are all included in that which is life. We are life. It’s a scientific fact that “what is good for you is good for me.”

The infinite field of consciousness is All Present, All Powerful, and includes All of Existence. Thus, nothing can possibly happen outside its infinite domain because it is the Source of Existence. Within this infinite field of power, there are decreasing levels of energy fields. As they are expressed progressively in form (linearity), their relative power decreases all the way down to the individual.
The giant field could be compared to an immense electrostatic field in which the individual is like a charged particle that, because of the infinite power of the field, is automatically aligned within the field according to its individual “charge.” The charge of the karmic spiritual body is set by intention, decision, and alignment by intention.
It appears to naïve perception that what is not intellectually explicable seems to be “accidental,” especially when the event is unpredictable. Inasmuch as the infinite field of consciousness is unlimited in dimension, nothing can happen outside of it. All that occurs within it is under its influence, and therefore, nothing “accidental” is possible in reality.

To become more conscious is the greatest gift anyone can give to the world; moreover, in a ripple effect, the gift comes back to its source.

All life ebbs and flows. Everyone is born, suffers afflictions, and dies. There is happiness and sadness, catastrophe and success, increase and decrease. The stock market rises and falls. Diseases and accidents come and go. The karmic dance of life unfolds in the karmic theater of the universe.
