The condition of being aware
The movement brought a painful awareness of how stiff her muscles were becoming.
The moment their lips met, lightning flew through her, setting every nerve afire with awareness unlike anything she'd felt before.
She was slung over someone's shoulder, stuck between awareness and blackness.
Awareness filled and overwhelmed her senses, blinding her to all but instinct and the sound of her breathing.
Primitive religion, however, resorts to either way of approach so indifferently as to prove that there is little or no awareness of an inconsistency of attitude.
