Our own Direct Experience

Awareness is self-maintained amidst the flow of points of view. Then, if the recognition of awareness slips away, it is simply repeated again. Short moments, repeated many times, acknowledge instinctive recognition of awareness. It is simply found to be true in our experience.

The Beneficial Power of Awareness

There is a powerful opening of skillful means and profound insight in the balanced view of awareness. This greatly beneficial power has a naturally occurring morality and ethics that are of benefit to all. The power of insight and skillful means in all situations comes about by relying on potent awareness, rather than getting involved in points of view.

Instinctive Recognition

Relying on awareness leads to clarity and emphasizing points of view leads to confusion and tension. Instinctive recognition of awareness elicits inherent stability, peace, love, happiness and natural warmth.

Complete Well-Being

Well-being comes from short moments of awareness rather than from trying to regulate points of view. Simple, straightforward awareness is clarifying and empowering. It exhausts harmful psychological and behavioral patterns and simultaneously perfects beneficial qualities and actions.

A Balanced View

Awareness is not a way of avoiding everyday life. It is a way to fully embrace all of life from the vantage of a balanced view and clarity.

Compassion and the ability to act skillfully in all situations occur easily due to the power of awareness.

Mental And Emotional Stability

In realizing the inseparability of awareness and points of view, confidence is gained. Being unafraid of points of view is a sign of confidence in awareness. It is caring deeply about life and about our effect on the world. Moreover, it means mental and emotional stability and relief of confusion, with no ups and downs.

Just Relax

There is no need to look for awareness. There is no need to ask, “Where is it?” “Is it there or not?” There is no need to look around for awareness, which is naturally present at all times. Simply enjoy awareness and its natural process of becoming continuous through short moments. There is no need to find awareness. Relax. Just relax; that’s all. Awareness will naturally become increasingly obvious.

Natural Clarity

Awareness has natural clarity at all times, like the brilliant light that fills a clear sky at high noon. It has this clarity naturally. We don’t need anything for that clarity to be; it is just naturally arising, naturally present. It doesn’t depend on anything. In awareness, the obviousness of clarity and the joy of certainty become evident as our natural state. This is the joy of knowing that awareness is the indestructible clarity of all experience.

As it is

Awareness is in harmony with points of view. There is no fighting with viewpoints anymore. This is the best well-being. Open, spacious awareness naturally allows point of view to be as it is. There is no need to save or delete viewpoints. Everything happens very simply. Since there is no need to change the flow of experience in a short moment of clarity, antidotes and remedies come to a complete stop.

Clarity is Your Vantage

By the power of a short moment of awareness, repeated many times, it becomes impossible to be derailed by disturbing emotions. Instead, you remain as you are—stable, clear and at ease. It is the easy way to live. Unchanging awareness and clarity is your vantage.

Natural Perfection

This is similar to spontaneously allowing a heavy load to fall to the ground. By the power of awareness, the burden of changing the flow of points of view is relieved and natural perfection is instinctively recognized. Awareness is free in its natural perfection.

Friday, December 18, 2009

Openhearted Clarity

True confidence is instinctive realization of openhearted clarity—knowing how to rely on awareness in any point of view. By the power of awareness, we are no longer afraid of ourselves.

Thursday, December 17, 2009


In any context in which points of view appear, do not try to alter the experience in any way. With this, there is ease without indulging, rejecting or replacing any thought, emotion, sensation or other experience.

A Short Moment of Awareness

A short moment of awareness is complete. It is free from involvement in hope and fear, ups and downs and other extremes of points of view.

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

A Very Practical Approach

Awareness is self-affirming. In short moments of awareness, we reinforce the clarity of awareness in all our experience. We begin to gain confidence in awareness for self-benefit, and eventually that inspires us to be of benefit to all. Short moments of awareness: this is a very practical approach.

Clarity of Awareness

As we recognize our natural state just as it is, all effort to “find awareness” or “become aware” gradually ceases and awareness is permanent and obvious at all times. The clarity of awareness is predominant in the natural flow of all points of view, day and night. Clarity is realized to be the natural, uninterrupted flow of all points of view that appear.

Gaining Confidence In Awareness

We need to simply allow a moment of the uncontrived naturalness of awareness. Instead of focusing upon it, it is simply allowed to naturally be as it is. It is a matter of gaining confidence in our natural state. The more we have confidence in the natural presence of awareness, the less we need to deliberately rely on short moments and the easier it becomes to recognize that it is self-sustained.

Everything Rests In Natural Perfection

If we have positive points of view, that’s fine. If we have negative points of view, that’s fine. There is no need to control the natural flow of points of view. Place the emphasis on awareness—that’s all. Thoughts, emotions and sensations just flow along doing whatever they do. This is the key point. Awareness is naturally at rest. Everything rests in natural perfection. Leave it as it is.

Unending Clarity

Short moments repeated again and again, do become automatic. Unending clarity becomes increasingly obvious until it is evident at all times. By putting this into practice, we attain deep confidence in the power of short moments to bring benefit to our lives. We keep it simple: Short moments, many times.

Thursday, December 10, 2009


We don’t need all kinds of ways to find awareness. Nothing is needed. Allow short moments of awareness, repeatedly, leaving everything just as it is. Short moments of awareness increasingly open up the balanced view, clarity and insight of awareness.

Growing Familiarization and Confidence

Due to the potent benefit we find in short moments, we naturally commit to awareness. The natural presence of awareness is automatically enlivened in all our daily activity due to our growing familiarization and confidence. By getting accustomed to this, our recognition of awareness becomes stable and automatic.

Relaxed Awareness

Relaxed awareness can be recognized in any circumstance—walking, running, working, thinking, parenting, studying, eating, making love, and all daily activities.

Monday, December 7, 2009

With Nothing More To Do

Enjoying short moments of awareness is like finishing a hard day’s work or relaxing after a warm and soothing bath. We are completely relaxed with nothing more to do.

Sunday, December 6, 2009

Crystal Clear Awareness

Everyone already possesses awareness. It is not that we don't have it and hope to get it at some point in the future. We already are aware. Briefly acknowledge awareness, again and again, and it becomes obvious all of the time. We can enjoy crystal clear awareness because awareness is always already present. We don’t have to find it. That is why we can always rely on awareness.

Powerful Intelligence and Clarity

Short moments, many times, become continuous. This exceptionally potent method grants access to a powerful intelligence and clarity that is not noticed when there is emphasis on descriptions or points of view. So continue to take short moments of empowering awareness, leaving everything as it is, whenever you remember to do so, until awareness is continuous at all times.

Result of Short Moments, Many Times

The very first moment of awareness already has within it the result of complete relief, mental and emotional stability, clarity, insight, compassion, self-benefit and the benefit of all. By repeatedly relying on awareness, it becomes automatic.

The Great Power of Complete Relief

The first time the choice is made to rely on awareness rather than emphasizing points of view, there is a sense of the great power of complete relief to be found in awareness. By persisting in this one simple choice, benefits are seen from the outset. The flow of points of view is not altered. Everything is left simply as it is. By the power of awareness, clarity becomes increasingly obvious.

The Most Important Choice

We choose for awareness to be obvious to us or not. Moment-to-moment awareness is the most important choice we will ever make.

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Short Moments, Many Times, Until Automatic

Because of the habit of emphasizing points of view, the initial brief moments of awareness may not last long at first. In other words, there may be no real stability. It may almost immediately slip away. This is perfectly fine. That is why short moments are relied on, many times, until awareness becomes automatic. This is the key point in gaining confidence in awareness.
