Noticing what you already are
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 disappear.
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.
