Alignment with Accountability
Walking In Consciousness is an interesting idea to me. It takes my mind in many directions with each direction leading to a plethora of ideas and questions. I know you’re probably thinking that I am the publisher of Conscious Shift, I should have a firm idea about and be able to explain what Consciousness is and how to walk in it and yet the only thing I can say is that it is different for everyone. Each one of us assimilates our experiences differently because of the way we see the world.
Now this is where my questions come in because I am curious about everyone’s view and how they came to see things the way they do. This is also where I understand that explaining Consciousness and Walking In Consciousness is a personal and unexplainable thing.
The only thing I understand about Consciousness and its many paths is that if you don’t choose to focus on being a version of Consciousness, you can’t Walk In Consciousness no matter your view. I recently became more familiar with this idea on a recent vacation.
I have had a bit of a balance problem related to hearing loss. As a result of hearing and balance challenges I became unconscious about how I function in certain situations. For example, I have a hard time walking and not tripping, and I really have to focus so I see what is going on around me when I walk so, I don’t fall or walk in front of a car. I have lived like this for years, thinking that’s just something I had to deal with. In other words, I was living in a version of unConsciousness that created unfocused and unaccountable behavior.
About six months ago I started to realize how much I was giving up with living in unConscious behavior. In addition to challenges with balance and hearing, I have gained unwanted weight and a ton of fear. I realized that I had become the poster girl for unConscious living.
Once I saw how unConscious I was being I realized the only one who could change this was me. The only way I could get back to Walking In Consciousness was to choose to be focused, accountable and to walk in my own Consciousness. In other words, I had to choose to love me more than I loved the comfort of my unConsciousness.
In the months that followed I have changed my diet and I got walking sticks for trekking every day. Ok so I only trek in my neighborhood but it’s a start and as a result of this Walking In Consciousness I didn’t die on my recent vacation. I felt like I wanted to die but I didn’t. We walked everywhere and, in the process, I became acquainted with muscles and body parts I forgot I had. Each day I felt blissfully spent as I marinated in my Conscious muscle aches.
Thinking about all of this now, the years of unConscious living, muscle ache, and fear of getting over both, I choose Consciousness. No wait I choose to Walk In Consciousness.
