Experiment 1: Stop for a moment and look inside. Try and sense the very origin of
your most basic, most personal "I", your core subjective experience. What is that
root of the "I" feeling? Try to find it.
did you notice something....Every time you try to observe the "I" it takes a jump
back with you, remaining out of sight......
who was looking for this "I"?
Experiment 2: Look straight ahead. Now shut your eyes. The rich visual world has
disappeared to be replaced by an amorphous field of blackness, perhaps with red
and yellow tinges. But awareness hasn't changed. You will notice that awareness
continues as your thoughts come and go, as memories arise and replace each other,
as desires emerge and fantasies develop, change and vanish. Now try and observe
awareness. You cannot. Awareness cannot be made an object of observation because it is the very means whereby you can observe.
Awareness may vary in intensity as our total state changes, but it is usually a constant.
Awareness cannot itself be observed, it is not an object, not a thing. Indeed, it is
featureless, lacking form, texture, colour, spatial dimensions.
We can only know awareness, by BEING Aware!:)
