As a human, your uniqueness is that you can be “self-conscious.” Other species can’t. This gives you the greatest gift of life, which is “self-awareness.” Without it, you are a programmed robot. You think you are alive, but you are not! You think you are the CEO of your life, but you are not. Only by being aware of awareness, and conscious of consciousness will you experience the magic of celebration of life and “being alive.”
