A visitor to the website has asked:
“Could you tell me if there are any direct affirmations pertaining to pure awareness?”
Pure awareness is a state of inner peace and happiness, without, or almost without any thoughts. In this state one is fully aware and conscious, but at the same time free from the compulsion of thinking thoughts.
Since this is a state without thoughts and beyond the “ordinary” mind, and affirmations are mental in nature, they are not adequate tools to promote pure awareness.
To experience pure awareness and to live in this state, other means are required, such as concentration exercises and meditation, or in some cases, the help of a spiritual teacher, who himself/herself lives in this state of pure awareness.
