Awake, conscious, aware living is the technology of intimate, vital living, discovered as what is important and true in each moment. It is found by listening to and for the core nature of our needing and desiring connection, belonging, creative expression, respect, loving kindness, truth, nourishment, passionate recognition and meaningful experience, along with a timely span of solitude. We then realize we are innately whole, and we must wake up.
We discover this through reflection, contemplation, critical thinking, observing in order to discover, choosing to give undivided attention and deep listening to what is happening in the moment, right now: seeing and hearing what is real, beyond illusion and self-deception, recognizing ourselves as deeper than the conditioning of the impact of others. We can ask ourselves what we need and desire in our awake awareness. When we listen and hear, from this awake place, the voice of our true self responds.
"What passes for communication today in a relationship is similar to
what information is to education- a soulless exchange of facts"
Connor Sauer BG5 Certified Business Consultant and Guide
This deep listening evokes the sacred art of inner "fermentation" from which comes the natural next step, next conversation, next goal, next connection, our own innate wisdom and knowing.
I share my own process by
which Wisdom and Truth come
to alight upon my left shoulder,
whispering in my ear when I
can listen and hear:
- Being follows allowing
- Allowing follows opening
- Opening follows surrender
- Surrender follows devotion
- Devotion follows recognition
- Recognition follows seeing
- Seeing follows hearing
- Hearing follows listening
- Listening follows awakening
- Awakening follows observing
- Observing follows inquiry
- Inquiry follows the desire to lay down suffering, find a path to truth-realized, consciousness-realized, awake, aware and honest living.
Connor guides women and men into the place of uncovering intrinsic, core, honest and true choices for a an AWAKE, honest, genuine, self-realized, informed, passionate, mature, joyful and benevolent life. This is done through inquiry, deep listening, uncovering self-deception, and giving attention to what runs in the rivers beneath wanting and desire.
Connor also writes, keynotes, and facilitates experiential gatherings.
