This paper deals with embodiment as a form of learning and experiencing the world. The first person experience and manifestation of being is promoted through sense awareness and mind-body relationships to develop a condition of consciousness through perception. It is argued that creativity is available through a conscious bodily experience in an evolutionary ontogenic (Maturana & Varela, 1998) drift situation when it is not controlled by Cartesian methodology but left to emerge in a conscious embodied way, situated and open to change.

Keywords: awareness, ontological, experience, drift, perception, emerge, consciousness
