What is Awareness

This quote is really interesting…. in that the "awareness" of a thing – as in distinct from you – is not the real awareness that the enlightened talk about. Awareness without conflict is what takes you beyond.

The awareness of the fool is always limited
By thinking, or by trying not to think.

The awareness of the man who lives within,
Though he may be busy thinking,
Is beyond even awareness itself.

-Ashtavakra Gita 18:63

    awareness without conflict – no judgments – liberates from the effects of the past baggage.. in that you see stuff as it is.

    Knowledge is an estimation of the truth.. so ignorance can be said to be the admission that one refuses to make that estimation or does not have the wherewithal to do so.
