Awareness a quality of the leaders

Updated on December 26, 2016

Today, no one is functioning with full potential. That is why we are anonymous. Usually, one notices three patterns in the lives of people. Some lead, others follow, while many quit.

Leaders are those who have self-motivation, Zeal and dedication. They have the ability to tune in to their inner self, so they can guide and motivate others. Those who follow must have the enthusiasm to comprehend and implement the mission and vision placed before them. They must also work at transforming their own shortcomings. We see many quitters around us. They have plenty of complaints and grievances; they rarely enjoy life. They flow with worldly currents and lead mechanical lives.

What quality prevents life from being mechanical? What ingredient ignites zeal and keeps boredome at bay? Awareness. If we are constantly aware, life is always interesting. We enjoy everything for everything inspires us. Awareness is not alertness. Alertness requires effort and has an element of stress and tension. Awareness is alertness without tension. It brings zeal and enthusiaam with it. It leads to memory and concentration. It brings a deep sense of joy and connectivity with divinity.

We should be aware of what we are doing every second. Many would feel it will create tension. No. We are always aware of our name and family. Does it make us tense? Awareness is a relaxed and expansive state that eliminates tension. If we are constantly aware, we give cravings no scope to take root. Even drinking a cup of tea can be done with complete awareness. When things are done with complete awareness then there is satisfaction and no craving.

When we fulfill a desire mechanically, the deeper levels of our being are not satisfied and we develop an obsessive craving for that object. Awareness creates complete connectivity with divinity and all beings. Without this we are not open to divine grace though it is flowing constantly. When we are conscious of connectivity, we live in a state of heightenened awareness.

We often strive to amass property for future generations. Physical property may be lost. It may lead to strife and litigation. The best legacy we can leave behind is awareness and wisdom. Mahatmas are remembered with reverence not for the property they amassed, but for the principles by which they lived.

The outer world is constantly changing. The cars that are today's status symbols will be the bane of tomorrow. All material things lose their value after a while. Divinity never changes. God is ever the same. Divinity transcends time and space. Awareness takes us to state of true living with constant joy.

Surrendering to the divine tempo is the key. Surrendering fills our lives with bliss. We embrace life with open arms. We become natural leaders who inspire and ignite the flame of awareness in every heart.

      Hi Ravi,

      It sounds very good to focus on the physical object that is before you. I think it would be a good way to discipline the mind from wandering aimlessly.

      Great Hub!

      Kim :)
