Getting to know the Conscious Awareness you already have!
Learn about G. Gurdjieff's teachings on expanded human awareness. The first is the non-expression of negative emotions, not for suppression but for expanded awareness and understanding. The second is “self-remembering", an advanced practice of vigilant awareness. By understanding this capacity of human consciousness and the “how to“ experience this forgotten ability, one can directly experience that their ego is not their true self which is the main Teaching of the Wisdom Traditions also referred to as the Perennial Philosophy. As the Buddha said....."Come see, it’s the only Way".
