Simply by perceiving the moment we can feel the beauty that emanates from consciousness, as inner peace is a quality of consciousness. If we perceive the whole we can be aware not only of the world we are in at that moment, but also our thoughts, feelings and emotions, and by observing these we can discover much about ourselves.
While we are not aware we lose out on both inner learning and the feelings of peace that consciousness could bring.
A deeply spiritual inner peace is not in its root a quality of an emotion, nor of a thought, nor is it an idea or a belief, or the absence of conflict. It is a quality of consciousness found within a perception that is clear of the ego.
Consciousness experiences the form of dimensional existence most lucidly through the mechanism of a clear mind, and it’s most felt when we are aware in the present moment.
