What is Awareness and Consciousness?
True Awareness moves a person out of projection and into perception.
The more Consciousness the more Awareness
Awareness implies the ability to be objective... To view life people, situations and oneself as much as possible with the least amount of projection.
The more aware someone is, the less projection and the more perception.
I do not find awareness or consciousness dependent on species. i have had in my life many animal beings that have more consciousness than a human being and vice versa.
Consciousness is not an outward manifestation; and yet can be seen through ones actions. The level of Consciousness can not be hidden from the Universe. It is an inside job; as ultimately it is a component of vibration and how much Spiritual - Soul Essence is present in the incarnation.
