Conscious awareness is not a property that is present in some locations and absent in others. Awareness is present in everything, only the degree of awareness differs. The more a collection of matter and energy communicates within itself and with its environment, the more awareness it manifests. As communicating beings of a relatively high order (for this planet), we should recognize that our awareness is unified with the ocean of awareness that permeates the universe.

“Cosmic Being 2”
Max Tegmark on consciousness

“I believe that consciousness is, essentially, the way information feels when being processed. Since matter can be arranged to process information in numerous ways of vastly varying complexity, this implies a rich variety of levels and types of consciousness. The particular type of consciousness that we subjectively know is then a phenomenon that arises in certain highly complex physical systems that input, process, store and output information.

Clearly, if atoms can be assembled to make humans, the laws of physics also permit the construction of vastly more advanced forms of sentient life. Yet such advanced beings can probably only come about in a two-step process: first intelligent beings evolve through natural selection, then they choose to pass on the torch of life by building more advanced consciousness that can further improve itself.” “

"Now" is the endless act of co-creation.
While the spiritual path of inner journey is from our present level of understanding to full enlightenment - to complete knowledge and experience of ourselves as individualized units of Universal Consciousness.As spiritual growth progresses, constructive, life-enhancing improvements in our personal circumstances naturally unfold because inner states of consciousness always reflect as outer condition.
The Cosmos is full beyond measure of elegant truths
Of exquisite interrelationships
