7 Quotes on Self-Awareness Awareness can turn every event into an opportunity. Any action, even religious ones, if done without soul-awareness can become a cause of bondage. In the moment of unawareness, you are a slave. In the moment of awareness, you are the master. Be aware of your eternally pure nature and your present impure state. To bring in awareness, learn to create an interval between any experience and your response to it. Every moment lived in awareness is a moment truly celebrated. With awareness of your true nature, play your role well.
