Attention Falling Back to its Source

Jun 06, 2021
I find it difficult to focus on awareness, it is like an object, it is easy to see and pay

attention

to thoughts, feelings, objects and I find it really helpful to allow an object to float in space and somehow this identifies with it and I allow It dissolves, but I find some kind of next stage of identification with consciousness or I somehow give my

attention

to consciousness, which is nothingness, which is emptiness, and I get stuck because it's like, well, where is it? ?, how can it? I give the engine, you are absolutely right and who would be paying attention to conscience?

It's you, you're consciousness I guess pay attention now, yeah, your thoughts, yeah, you're paying attention to your thoughts, yeah, now, who is the you that's conscious or paying attention to your thoughts, consciousness, consciousness, so, That's you, isn't it you? this is aware of your thoughts, it is not in theory or not ultimately or not, but simply now, it is your consciousness that is aware of your thoughts, yes, yes, it is your consciousness that is aware of these words, yes , and the sight of this room and the feeling of your hand on your leg, that is your consciousness, it is not something that you have not suddenly become, you stopped being me and became a when, it is simply what you are, yes, yes, so now instead you are aware of giving your attention, which means giving yourself over to thought. the sound or the sensation, what you would have to do to pay attention to yourself, how you would do it, but the only thing I can think of is to withdraw my attention from the object, perfect exactly, you can't really shine the light of your attention on the way you illuminate it on a thought the thought seems to be different from you you can only pay attention to something that apparently is different from you remember what we said yesterday about ah 10 dari paid attention me stretching towards you stretch it from yourself consciousness towards the thought in the case of a thought you do not stretch it very much, you only stretch it a little in the case of the tree you stretch it a little more but in each case you extend your consciousness towards something that seems Don't move now, how are we going to attend to ourselves?
