Sometimes in objectless awareness we turn our attention to awareness itself, and it is neither that which contains everything nor that which knows, but is more like a deep felt sense that we are aware. We are here. We are fully present, and everything seems to be happening on its own. This way of experiencing awareness can often surprise you, but it may feel like the awareness is unshakable, that it spontaneously is present, and that there is not much you can do to stop being aware. No matter what is happening, including thoughts, we are fully and uncompromisingly aware.
Once you understand how to shift into natural awareness by relaxing effort, broadening attention, or dropping the focus on objects, you can then practice natural awareness meditation, which will invite these experiences to deepen and and be sustained.
the tiniest details of day-to-day pleasure add up to “whole life” awarenesses…..
inquiry for today~ what are the teeniest tiniest moments you notice today?
Having purified the great delusion,
the heart’s darkness, the radiant light
of the unobscured sun continually arises.
~Dudjom Lingpa Rinpoche
