Until you are conscious of yourself as the Awareness of the Subconscious as well as the Awareness as the Present Moment, you will not realize your true and eternal Self that is the true Awareness of Soul. Awareness is the activity of Spirit - of our true Consciousness.
As Mind Consciousness you need to be fully present with a one pointed focus in and of Awareness which is the body of your true Consciousness as Spirit. It is the Spirit that directs the Soul/Subconscious while the Conscious Mind (Thought) acts as Witness.
The Consciousness of Mind (I) must merge with its true Consciousness of Spirit that is the true and eternal "I".
Seeing I to I is Self-Realization, whereby the I of mind and the I of Spirit come together as One in their respective Am which is Soul and Subconscious Aka Awareness.
Once the I of mind is absorbed in the I of Spirit, life (true Self) maintains itself (Mind/body) meaning it becomes effortless and peaceful for the Effect, which perfectly reflects itself as Cause.
Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son (Mind/body/Effect) can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father (Spirit/Cause -True Self) doing, because whatever the Father (Cause) does the Son (Effect)also does. - John 5:19
