"Conscious awareness describes a mental state of being truly aware of the events and situations in one's life. ... Introspective consciousness describes the highest level of awareness , in which your mind is aware of itself." Becoming more consciously aware provides a clarity of understanding in ones' life that is beneficial in evaluating what gives life meaning and, correspondingly, adjusting life's purpose. Conscious awareness, meaning and purpose become an ongoing feedback loop that, when successful, provide us with a more fulfilling life and allows us to make a more meaningful contribution to the world.
