Awareness is what is. Awareness is the start of all that is with this body. All senses arise from awareness. Thoughts that arise come from awareness and the thoughts are not me. Some thoughts are used for figuring out life while others complicate life, yet those thoughts are not me because I am awareness. Attention arises from awareness and focuses on what awareness chooses for attention to focus onto. Everything comes from awareness.
During my trip a few weeks back something said, "Just be" at the end. Likely from all the reading and watching of videos, but not having thoughts and only watching while outside under the stars was beautiful. Maybe I'm only understanding intellectually about awareness and not having the experience without mush.
Driving down the rode I see a turtle, I being awareness. My awareness has stopped my car, not my foot. My foot only pressed the brake, but my awareness sent signals through my nervous system to the correct musculature to press on the brake to stop the car. Same goes for opening my door to get out of the car. My eyes are being guided by awareness as well. The turtle is picked up and placed on the side of the road. My awareness didn't hear the truck coming around the corner and I'm struck. I'm now unconscious, but just prior to being smacked, I was conscious. ------ Too simplified because the enormous amount of actions taken for a simple movement in the body is way above my education level, but I'm aware of awareness.
Again, maybe only understanding intellectually and not experiencing.
