Consciousness is awareness plus appropriate action. To perceive a thing to be true is to act upon it.

It is not enough to be aware or go off into wild imaginings and 'mystic realms.' Illusions drain us of the creativity we need for transforming our lives. Awareness without commitment to act leads to self-deception with no purpose. It is easy to get lost in the idea of creating our own realities -- thereby failing to open through commitment and integrity to what is actually real, instead of what we want to be real.

Reflection gives knowledge, and action tests that knowledge. Too often people fail to let their actions be consciously chosen ones.
