What is awareness or mindfulness?

To observe means to consciously try to watch yourself in every act, by dividing an act into many acts. Remain present in the act totally, Instead of performing it mechanically or like a robot, while busy thinking about other acts or events or people.

When you are watching a rose, then you are aware of the rose, it’s beauty and fragrance etc. So there is nothing to achieve to become aware. Awareness is our nature.

If you have played any Virtual Reality game, then you become the hero player of it. The game is equally vast as the world around us. And we have to play in a limited jurisdiction initially with limited tools etc.

The difference is only that before playing the game you know the answer of most prominent question ‘Who am I?’. And in life you are born and brought up in this Virtual Reality game called life so you do not know who you are?

It is made possible because the game- called life- is designed, produced and directed by the God himself! While eternity is available to him and everyone who comes to know the answer of this question ‘Who am I?’ In this game we assume ourself as the hero of the game instead a watcher/player of the game. The mystery is that being born and brought up in the game we start defining ourselves as per our role! But the REALITY is something different and one may start trying to understand life, world etc etc but the secret of solving this mystery lies in getting the answer of question ‘Who am I?’ while being born and brought up in a Virtual Game, one has to transcend beyond it to make it possible. Meditation is the key to make it happen. And whole existence gets unfolded immediately-said Mystics all around the world.

Now I wish to raise an important question in your mind.

Now there is a situation in which the VR hero player ie you, is watching beauty of a rose. This is objective awareness.

Now in game the hero player is watching the rose and its beauty but in REALITY there is no rose, no hero player and no
