Awareness – Part 3: Physical Awareness

Awareness – Part 3: Physical Awareness

As the practical side of ourselves, the physical gross sense perceptions include hearing, seeing, touching, smelling, and tasting. We use our sensate reality to build, make, and manifest tangible results in the physical world. The physical awareness strives to manifest the ideas, actions, and reactions of the other three awareness’s.

Of all of these awareness’s, the physical awareness has the most concern of all the others on the details, distinctions, and refinements of the end result. As it strives to ensure that ideas are manifested, it looks for what is missing and acts as the Critic. Because it is practical and aware of parameters and limitations, it kicks into action only when all the pieces are clearly in place.

The physical awareness is interested in the end product and the final result, and builds downward, creating solid outcomes. We think of the physical process as the element of EARTH as it concretizes the ideas of the Dreamer with the actions of the Realist and the reactions of the Catalyst to produce the outcome initiated by the mental awareness.

The Dreamer, the Realist, the Catalyst, and the Critic operate as a whole system whereby the social process (social-mental and social-physical) serves as the interface between the mental and physical processes.

In a metaphorical sense, the social-mental awareness uses the process of FIRE to go to where the Dreamer in us resides. In order to get a focus or goal, it taps into our mental awareness of AIR. It then comes down to the social-mental level and translates the goal or focus into immediate action steps.

The social-physical awareness, on the other hand, using the process of WATER, goes down to the physical awareness or EARTH and assists in the assimilation of manifesting the idea.

The elements of FIRE and WATER are the interface between AIR and EARTH. AIR and EARTH, being such different expressions—one intangible and the other tangible—are worlds apart, and without an interface they would lack the ability for integrative growth and development.

Stay awake, aware, and alert and strive to lead a well-tempered life – a life that possesses both hardiness and flexibility.  The good news is that once you are awake, it’s hard to go to sleep again, but if you do, do it on purpose and prepare yourself for the consequences.
