I am talking about the consciousness/awareness that receives data in the
form of eye:sights, ear:sounds, nose:smells, tongue:tastes,
body:physical sensations and mind:thoughts. It is the mere reception of
these stimuli that turns our inner world and outer world so it's to our
advantage to get to know the interaction between stimulation and
response intimately.

Without great awareness in the present moment, we are carried along by
emotional reactions to events instead of actually knowing and
understanding them. More often than not, that impulsive reactiveness
brings us much misery and pain. But if that same consciousness is
harnessed to focus on this never-ending stream of events moment to
moment, it begins to understand them in a very different way and changes
the mind at a fundamental level.

The ability to touch that understanding has declined over the last 2500+
years and there will come a time when that knowledge will be forgotten.
But it will be rediscovered sometime in the very distant future because
it it cyclical as all things are.
