Teacher: Rodney Smith

Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



Sit down in a relaxed position without any pressure or expectation. Look around in clear, innocent, non-labeling perception. Just look, don’t interpret. See the light, shapes, colors, and textures. Just relax your attention so that you feel the arising of alert presence. Be aware of the silent presence of each thing. Notice this field of alert attention is free of any reactivity. Be aware of two dimensions in this field: 1) the objects that are appearing within consciousness, and 2) the sense of aware presence in which these sense perceptions appear. Be aware of the objects and that which observes the objects. Awareness of the appearances is awareness of consciousness and awareness of that which observes the appearances is awareness of awareness itself.
