Awareness is always there

Awareness does not get better when we have an inspired thought or a sublime emotion. It does not get worse when we are completely neurotic. Awareness just is. It is not something we do. It is who we are

Since awareness is always there, the only thing we need to do is recognize it. We don’t need to improve it, and we couldn’t, even if we tried

The biggest challenge with awareness is that it is so close, we do not see it. It is so ordinary, we don’t believe it. It is just knowing, effortless presence

—Mingyur Rinpoche
