Ever since we were old enough to stand in front of a mirror the same witnessing presence has been staring into the mirror. As the years roll by the image changes and the experiences build history and the mind accrues information. The looker has remained the same. The 'I' that has experienced all of these myriad of experiences has remained the same. The 'I' that has witnessed all of the mind’s thoughts has not changed one iota from all of these thoughts. Thoughts come and go, experiences come and go, physicality comes and goes but 'I', the experiencer, the looker remains the same. Culturally we are taught to identify with the thoughts, feelings, the body, i.e. the experience, when in reality we are the experiencer, the 'I', awareness, consciousness, that which always is. A shift in focus from what is being experienced to the experiencer that is witnessing the experiences creates a paradigm shift. I was walking down the street being aware of being aware when ‘my world’ exploded into pure Love and Absolute safety. Rather than being aware of the 'things' around me I was aware of the aliveness and light that all apparent substance is made up of. That only lasted for 3 weeks but it is now my reference point. Being aware of being aware, if practiced regularly, aligns one with the Truth of one's Being, one's Divinity and takes one into a realm of silence/ peace/stillness. Life is lived intuitively, guided by the intelligence that emerges from the Silence. Living from this place naturally places one right in the present moment. In fact time drops away. Becoming identified with this 'I Am' is freedom. The world can be experiencing all kinds of tribulations but one who is practicing being Awareness is not of this world. Living in Awareness is Grace.
