Question from Facebook:
Jason: I just think i need to be clear on what exactly awareness is….
Michael: Been there, done that… awareness is absolutely nothing… you are always aware of something, so whatever the mind claims is “awareness” can never be it… let the mystery have you… nothing to figure out… it’s the mind’s attempt to figure out something it can only ever guess at that keeps the suffering going… can you notice how badly the mind wants to be “right”??
What is your direct experience when the whole search is dropped, confusion and loose ends and all? “I give up” full stop.
What is left but this naked moment exactly as it is?
Jason: Yea there’s nothing left….no thought just sounds and sensations..of this direct moment…
