We confuse awareness with thinking. Begin to notice the qualitative difference when you are mindful and when you are lost in thought. Notice that the quieter you become, the more awareness is accessible, and the less the sense of self intrudes. The sense of you obstructs awareness and depends upon thought for its existence. Awareness flourishes as a result of seeing the limitations of thought and releasing your need to carry yourself around. Study this dynamic this week. Watch what happens to your awareness/mindfulness when you are reactive and full of thought. Watch what happens to the sense of you when you are quiet and your senses are alive.
