' What is aware ?'...


(a) Awareness alone is whatever it turns its attention to, seems to exist at the time: only that.

If to Void then there is nothing else.

If to world, then world assumes reality.

(b) What is it that is aware?

The thought of a point of awareness creates, gives reality at the lowest level to ego, and at the highest to Higher Self but when the thought itself is dropped there is only the One Existence, Being, in the divine Emptiness.

It is therefore the Source of all life, intelligence, form.

(c) The idea held becomes direct experience for the personality, the awareness becomes direct perception.
