Awareness is an ever present force. The backdrop of a steady flame. It is like the most devoted, compassionate vision of Mother/Father providing the space, as its offspring explores, experiments and plays.
Presence. Surrounding. Allowing. Embracing. Everywhere but nowhere. It offers the background to the “i” and “I.”
Calm, neutral, constant. Observer to all. Judger of none. Solid yet unseen.
Oh, to be this subtle, unobtrusive, yet powerful presence.
Never demanding, never directing, never controlling or forcing.
Invisible yet real.
