The major limitation of consciousness is its innocence.
Consciousness is gullible; it believes everything it hears.
Consciousness is like hardware that will play back any software you put into it.
We never lose the innate innocence of our own consciousness; it persists, naïve and trusting, like an impressionable child.
Its only guardian is a discerning awareness that scrutinizes the incoming program.
Over the ages, it has been noted that merely observing the mind tends to increase one’s level of consciousness.
A mind that is being watched becomes more humble and begins to relinquish its claims to omniscience
. A growth in awareness can then take place.
With humility comes the capacity to laugh at oneself and increasingly to be less the victim of the mind and more its master, as demonstrated by the famous Zen ox-herding pictures.
