Consciousness to awareness

Sri Sadgurubhyoh Namah
Dear Guruji,

I have seen the transition from separation to awareness to consciousness and back to awareness 'I am' and from there to 'I am body' in today's meditation. I understood your statement 'awareness comes from consciousness'. Consciousness is always present. self-awareness comes and goes in that. the three states are similar in nature. I am not conscious mind, I am not awareness also. Everything, subject, object, world, their relationship, all of these are in consciousness, Narayana.
When I am writing this sentence, I have a feeling that I am inside the world. I am separate from the world. Objects exist apart from me. This feeling comes when I identify with body.
When I identify with awareness, I have a subjective feeling, sakshi bhavana. This feeling can be cultivated with the thought that 'what I watch is all a play of mind, including body, world etc,a movie and I am watching movie'. This is also not ulitmate truth, because Sakshi bhavana is cultivated , and it can come and go.
The place where sakshi bhavana comes and goes, movie is running (subjective knowledge and objective knowledge) , the thing that knows everything , the coming and going of awareness, is available even now to me. It is just there.
Even before awareness, there is consciousness which also knows everything, and it is this that is the knowing principle. Awareness is only limitation of the knowing principle that 'I am knowing' and 'I am existing' and 'I am body'.
Pls validate my understanding.

Seva or service

Sri Sadgurubhyoh Namah
Dear Guruji,

Seva / service to others actually makes me feel better. If I think good about others, it makes me feel good (as explained by you on thursday talk). I understood it. The more good I think of others, heart feels better, and if I really wish others well, and work for others benefit, keeping their wellness in mind, I can feel the connectedness of sahasrar and heart (this I think is twin hearts, pls validate my understanding).

Prabhuji : Yes

Uncertainity and Predictability

Sri Sadgurubhyoh Namah
Dear Guruji,

Today's thought,
uncertainity gives a thrill, predictability gives a boredom.
People try to make future stable and secure, hence their future becomes predictable and they lose interest in life quickly. The childhood enthusiasm is lost by middle years and disillusionment with life begins. Similarly sense of duty, which gives boredom quickly. I am not saying that one should run away from duties. But, there is no task that 'I Have to do'.

Prabhuji : True

Everything is a thought

Sri Sadgurubhyoh Namah

Dear Guruji,

Thought for today, pls validate,

Everything is a thought in consciousness. 
Sense of body, sense of mind, sense of intellect, sense of sensory perceptions, sense of separation, sense of doing, sense of everything is a thought in consciousness. Of which the sense of separation is strongest and recurring thought pattern for an earth bound soul.
Everything rises and falls in consciousness.

Prabhuji's response : Everything is sensation-feeling-emotion-thought
