Awareness

I think most of us have an inkling that there's a way of knowing that's somehow independent of time, place, situation, and yes, even words, ideas & concepts. Mindfulness practices gently lead us to directly experience - to feel our way into - this way of knowing called awareness.

"Now simply be aware of the awareness that is free from the contents of your mind and the sensations in your body. Hang out as awareness without going up to thought or down to sleep. Be the awareness that welcomes your sensations and thoughts. Notice that awareness is not separate from thoughts, feelings, and sensations."

Loch Kelly. “Shift into Freedom. The Science and Practice of Open-hearted Awareness.” Sounds True, Boulder, Colorado, 2015.
