' Nothing to it ! '...
When attention looks back at Itself, instead of at a mental topic or sensory perception; it can't find anything there except empty awareness.
That empty awareness is Absolute Perfection. It's empty of thought and empty of any sense of self. It's nature is intrinsic peace and openness.
It is contentment itself, because it is always complete and lacks nothing.
It relies on nothing because nothing sustains it.
The conceptualizing and thinking mind has been discovered to be nothing but a producer of unnecessary turbulence; where in its absence only a profound peace prevails.
This Empty Awareness is an indestructible Vajra, not dependent upon nor caused by anything at all.
No need to look further; just let attention look back at itself. How could one miss knowing what's always knowing, empty and aware?
"Since there is only this pure observing, there will be found a lucid clarity without anyone being there who is the observer; only a naked manifest awareness is present. (This awareness) is empty and immaculately pure, not being created by anything whatsoever." Karma Lingpa
