The second layer of consciousness and aliveness is the layer of our five senses. We explore and refine our experience of reality as we experiment with our sensory abilities.
We are aware of our emotional, mental, and physical bodies. Depending on our character, one of these three bodies is mostly the drive, underneath our behavior.
Our experiences can be truly amazing, yet we often get stuck in expedient pleasures and external desires. We value what we want higher than what we need. Our focus is still on the outside world. It is this outside world that will provide for what we want and it is in this world that we’ll get it. Control is often the preferred strategy to do so.
We believe that the other is responsible for how we feel. As we explore all of our senses, our experience of life usually goes from good to better.
