Are you aware of awareness? By experiencing different states of awareness, you're becoming familiar with the vast terrain of consciousness.
WHY BOTHER MOVING ALONG THE SPECTRUM OF AWARENESS IN THE FIRST PLACE?
The first is that you're getting to know your mind better. By experiencing different states of awareness, you're becoming familiar with the vast terrain of consciousness.
The second reason why training along the spectrum of awareness is important is that you're learning to activate these different mental states at will, harnessing the full power of your mind.
