You may wish to be more conscious, to be present, 
to be connected. But there is one difficulty—consciousness cannot be developed unconsciously. Consciousness grows when you experience that you are conscious. How can we search for that experience if we’ve never had it? It takes a lot for us to come to the simple fact that we have no idea what consciousness is. It’s harder for us to accept that we are not conscious than to become conscious! Yet no understanding is possible without being conscious.

What to do? Know that your body breathes. As often as you can. Don’t let a day of your life pass without
at least one time experiencing that your body inhales and exhales. Make that your minimum. And add to it whenever you can.

When you are fully with your inhalation and exhalation, your consciousness is participating, free from thoughts, feelings, and sensations.
