• You cannot possess awareness because awareness is
not a thing. Awareness is not an object. You cannot
become aware or develop awareness because you
already are awareness. The only thing that is required
of you is to stop identifying who you are with the
many forms that awareness takes. As soon as you stop
identifying with form, which is the “content” of
awareness, then all that is left is pure awareness.
• Awareness is open, transparent, and always aware of
itself. Awareness is absolute spaciousness, and this
spaciousness includes everything, keeps everything
within its embrace, and lovingly lets all things exist in
whatever way they choose.
• What happens in this space does not corrupt or debase
it. Everything in existence emerges from and falls back
into this pure, immaculate, and incorruptible space; be
it emotions like pain and anger, battles and armed
conflicts, despotic dictators, all manifestations of
weather including rain, wind, snow, and the clouds that
float across the sky, as well as the people in our lives
whom we cherish the most. The “you” that you think
you are also arises in this space that you are.
• Close your eyes and take a moment to simply be aware
of the vast space that is immediately within and
before you and which surrounds you. It has no
beginning or end, yet it always has, always is, and
always will, exist as this changeless, eternal, still, and
immediately available ground of beingness.
• There is an aspect of you that has accompanied you
through all of your life experiences as your very
nature. Can you identify what this is that is
perpetually unmoving and always present? Wise men
and women from time immemorial have talked about
an “all-embracing ultimate reality,” which is none
other than your very own ordinary present awareness.
Try not to stray from this profound simplicity.
• Just be aware of a sense of presence that is always
here. Now, don’t think about what you have just read.
Simply notice the presence that is seeing the world
through your eyes now and is always seeing the world
through your eyes. This seeing is timeless and never
leaves you. What is looking, the watcher in you, is this
pure awareness, this ultimate presence. The truth of
who you are is that actual awareness, which has always
been free. You are that freedom.
