Our clarified perceptions allow us to have a happy life. That is what it really boils down to. Wisdom is an entirely happy life. The power of maintaining awareness is immense. It clarifies all perceptions and this is very, very important in a practical way.
When we gain confidence in awareness, it has practical results on all levels of living. When we see the power of awareness, we are simultaneously seeing our own power to benefit ourselves as it unleashes well-being within us that we never knew was possible.
