Every human drama consists of a sensation and a trying to get away from it: we call it suffering. But what drives this mechanism of always searching for an exit from a sensation? Honestly, nothing. It’s just the mind’s interpretation of the sensation. This interpretation, this labeling divides our experience into good and bad, into wanting and not wanting, making our world appear in terms of duality.
Awareness on the other hand is the oneness. It’s the vigilance, the wakefulness, that which sees and is already awake – infinite, undisturbed, ever-present wakefulness. We, as awareness, have never been asleep to expect to reach some awakening. We have just been believing in our interpretations. That wakefulness, though, is never affected by them.
