Can You Locate Awareness?

From “In Touch” by John J Pendergast:


“Take a minute to close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths and relax.

Now note your thoughts.

Don’t try to think or to not think; just be aware of the comings and goings of thoughts and images, usually of the past or the imagined future.

Now turn your attention to this which is aware—aware of sensations, feelings, and thoughts.

Does it have a discrete location or boundary?

Is it possible that this open, undefined awareness is shared by everyone?

Siegel describes knowing as “a nonconceptual inner sense of truth, an intuitive and non-language-based way of perceiving the nature of reality and our place in the larger world and the continuity within the flow of life in which we live.”

This form of knowing is an unworded way of coming to the truth, a subterranean stream that provides “a coherent impression of the world as it is.”
