Along with meditation a constant focus on increasing your awareness enables you to progress your enlightenment.

With correct focus over time you'll see the gradual progress of your awareness expanding constantly to new levels.

Today is the best day of your life.  We say this because today you are the most progressed along your path of enlightenment that you've ever been.  You have accrued the most amount of experience ever for you to have available to analyze and learn from.

Plan and authorize all non-autonomic body movements.  For instance actions like getting out of bed, opening the drapes and scratching your nose.  Beware of propensity to action.

With dedicated practice it is possible to see the vibe of the energy of a given situation.  This is made up of various factors.  This is one of the most important awarenesses in life.

Don't be the alien ape that doesn't understand the world around them.  Know how things work.  For instance know how the engine of your car works, know how your pen works, know where your food is from, know who claims ownership of the land you're now on, know how the electricity that powers your phone was generated, know how the laws you adhere to were made, know how your shirt / top was made from pesticide laden, Third World cotton plantation and polyester chemical plant to loom to seamster / seamstress again in a less developed country to warehouse to delivery to you.  What are your views on this?  How can your world be improved?  It's your world and it's good to know.

Awareness brings responsibility.  You can't say "I didn't know!".  It especially brings the responsibility to improve one's situation.

See with your Third Eye, your mind's eye.  Visualize your environmental vicinity as a 4-dimensional model (the spacial 3-dimensions plus the dimension of time).  Each of your eyes add some visual information.  Each of your five senses; sight, sound, smell, taste and touch, add information to your model.  Plus utilize your sixth sense, that which current day science can't explain.  Note that too much focus on any one sensory organ such as your right eye is unbalanced and leads to a far less well formed environmental image.  Be especially aware of the levelness of the ground upon which you walk.  Notice the obstacles like bollards and trees.

Your model of your environment is not limited to standard views.  See other layers.  For example see levels of hygiene, like a dirty street floor, a possibly infected, recently used, meat chopping board, your hands after receiving change, holding a hand rail or shaking hands.  See levels of danger for instance walking over a manhole cover which obviously is a cover for a hole compared with walking on solid ground.  Be aware of the people in your model, the one's that are easier to spot and the probabilistic fact of the people out of standard sensory range.  Like the people in the houses or schools as your walk down the street.  Have an awareness of the vehicles on the street and the people in them.  Notice the birds in the trees and other animals in your environment.  If audible be aware of the planes flying overhead.
