Get q& a on noticing what you a lready are by spiritual author enza vita
Q: I recognize that I am awareness, but I don’t truly identify
with it yet. What is the shift that needs to take place before
I can totally “be” it?
• ENZA: The thought that any shift needs to take place is
simply a thought. Thoughts have the ability to create a
sense of time and space and then to locate objects within
their boundaries. Become quiet for a moment, and be
aware of a thought arising out of awareness. Notice that in
this vast space, there is no separation between the thought
that arises and the awareness that is aware of the thought.
It’s impossible to say that the thought is located over here
in one place and awareness is over there in another.
• The thought and the awareness of the thought are
indivisible, and it is essential to realize this. Emotions, states
of consciousness, and sensations, along with thoughts, are
all inseparable from the ground of awareness within which
they exist. Without awareness, there is nothing for
anything to appear in.
• It is possible to be aware of what is happening in awareness
and to be aware of awareness at the same time. When you
realize that the things appearing within awareness are not
happening to you as an individual, then the boundary lines
between awareness and whatever appears in awareness
• Who you really are is that aware presence itself, and that
awareness registers the appearances that are occurring
within it. When you notice a thought, what is doing the
noticing is not you as you think yourself to be, an
individual with a mind and a body. Awareness itself is
noticing the thought, and you are that awareness.
• What is it that enables us to say, “I know that I am”? It is
the silent knowing of presence. Just settle in that pure
presence. This is where all the sweetness is, all the juice.
Simply notice this presence as you go about your life. Give
all the attention you have been giving to thought to this

that is taking it all in. What you are looking at is printed
word. What you are looking out of is the space that is
taking it all in.
