Awareness means you come with an inner light, you move fully alert. Each step is taken in awareness -- the walking, the coming, the sitting -- everything is done in full awareness.
If you are aware, you speak with awareness. But the awareness comes from the inward being. It flows from the inner being towards others.
Awareness is an inner quality of consciousness; it has nothing to do with closed or open eyes.
Walk, with awareness. Eat, with awareness. Breathe, with awareness.
The ego is nothing but condensed unawareness. When you become aware by and by that condensed unawareness we call 'ego' disappears. Just as if you bring a lamp into the room -- and the darkness disappears. Awareness is the lamp, the lamp we were talking about the first day. Be a lamp unto yourself.
When you listen with perfect awareness, then listening becomes possible.
