The contraction of awareness is a kind of hypnosis or trance that fear triggers in us. With any form of hypnosis, the antidote is awareness. The more aware you become of the experiential quality of your thoughts and fears—how they contract you—the less hypnotized you will be by the content of your thoughts and fears. Thought mostly functions to contract our awareness and put us into various trance states. This is not a mistake, but the contraction this causes gets old after a while. Then we naturally feel drawn to experiencing the flow of awareness without any trance-like illusions getting in the way.
A lot is made of the moments in life when things dissolve dramatically, like when you have a profound spiritual experience. But you can also develop an appreciation for everyday awareness, even when the dissolving is more like a creek carving a canyon. Releasing some of our structures or stuck places can take a long time. Uncovering the truth is rich, not just when there is a big breakthrough, but right from the beginning—once you’re willing to be with your awareness. All the richness that comes in big waves in a moment of breakthrough is actually always present.
Awareness doesn’t stop when you or I stop talking or doing something. No matter what is going on, awareness is here noticing whatever is happening. It might be scanning around, noticing this thought and then that thought, noticing this sensation and then another. Just notice the simple ordinary awareness that’s here right now. Everything you’ve ever sought, wanted, or desired—all the peace, joy, satisfaction, fulfillment, and richness of existence you’ve looked for your whole life—is here right now in the flow of awareness.
