Self-awareness comes with a price.  If you did not become aware of your ability to reason and all that goes with it, you would operate on instinct alone, being guided, fulfilling your purpose, much like so-called lesser creatures have done since creation.  But no, your soul chose to have the human experience, and you reason, and you think, and you think you know who you are.  You think you are only human.  How wrong you are when you are in this mindset.  Fully human and lacking wholeness are you in this mindset.  Use your ability to be self-aware to become aware of the greater Self.  Reason will then give way to knowing, and knowing will open to even greater awareness until there is nothing but pure being.  Being what?  Wholeness itself.
