Free Awareness - Non-Essentialism: What is 'Awareness' really pointing to?



~Bentinho Massaro

Awareness is just a word. An empty label. It means different things for different people and everyone initially tends to think of awareness as something that is really existing in and of itself. We turn it into a thing. We essentialize it by for example identifying a particular experience or state of mind, as being 'Awareness'.

The very word awareness, if used skillfully, is a tool designed to counter that. because awareness refers to 'the cognizing of experience' rather than any single one experience as opposed to other experience. Thus, don't hunker down into any particular experience as being more ultimate than another. That just keeps the dividing- and seeking mechanism going.
