Lots of us on our Inner Journey look inward and wonder about consciousness - how we have it, and what it's purpose might be?
But few wonder what it actually IS - in itself?
So here's what consciousness is :
Consciousness is the faculty of sentient awareness.
That is the definition of the word consciousness.
We humans came up with this word to describe the fact that we are aware of our existence and our surroundings.
Is a faculty aware of itself?
Does a faculty have a purpose?
Perhaps the mind is better focused on investigating 'Who/What has consciousness'!?
