    These are simply states of being...nothing "causes" it.

    i don't think anyone can have a definite answer to that question, but it is probably rooted in our basic survival mechanisms. If you were not conscious you wouldn't last very long in the natural world. Awareness is really an extension of consciousness. The more self-aware a sentient being is, the more likely they are to choose the correct actions to facilitate their continued existence. The next logical step is awareness of your surroundings, which again is advantageous to survival. Even beyond the natural world and into modern society, awareness, both of the self and of one's surroundings, is integral in succeeding.

    Consciousness is caused by awareness of separation or duality.

    This is caused by the brain. A normal brain analyzes through all five sinses and, if it is a normal brain,  it will based upon conditions you are in relay these feelings to you.

    Great question, I will say one word, that should sum it up in a nutshell, amongst other things.  Honesty....you are quite smart to figure out how that can be an asset to consciousness and awareness!

    Circumstance and life experience.

    Before you have kids you say,your kids are going to do this or that,or my child is going to this school.Jr's going to be doctor.

    But once you have kids you are aware it's not what you want,it's about your child,your child's capabilities and personality.

    That make you conscience and aware that somethings are out of your control and have nothing to do with you.

    I think being in the moment, being in the present can make us aware of our deeds and eventually make us conscious of our actions.
    Most of us, are living either in the past or in the future so, do not realize what we said or did and thus, the awareness that we have hurt someone does not come to mind.

    Conciousness and awareness can be felt only when we get out of the thought process.  " I "  " I am " is first thought which divert us from the consiousness we have to destroy that " I "  thought through constant meditation. once this " I " thought is destroyed we realise our Source (self) that is full of conciousness.
