Resting in Awareness
The following is a meditation for resting in awareness through noticing in three areas of experience: visual objects, sounds, thoughts and feelings. Possible results of this practice include:
- Directly experiencing awareness itself
- Differentiated from what is perceived in awareness
- Implicitly revealing that awareness and what arises in awareness are not separate
- Cultivating the ability to be present in awareness, even in the midst of phenomena moving in awareness.
- An embrace of whatever is arising in experience
- Which is a foundation to seeing all of experience as meaningful to work with, to be curious about, that we do not need to seek special conditions to practice: we practice with what is arising right now
- Opening the possibility for resting in presence.
In many ways this is a beginning practice of awareness and presence and there are practices of subtly and refinement that can deepen one's experience and embodiment.
