being conscious about one’s self is one of the central themes of meditation and mindfulness, and equally a daunting and difficult task

We go into glimpses of this consciousness, but a sustained awareness of one’s self is nearly impossible to achieve unless you are the Buddha

But to be aware of one’s own existence, that alone, can bring peace

and that’s why consciousness of self leads to more fulfillment

Only after you are more aware of your own existence can you become more aware of other people’s existences.

It is equally a self-task as it is a relationship task
