Awareness is like the sky. Sometimes the sky is clear. Other times wispy clouds of different shapes, sizes and color appear. Thoughts, feelings, emotions that arise within us make up the clouds. These clouds, in the sky, may come and go. However, the space in which this all occurs remains the same. The sky is always present. To the sky there are no good days, bad days, rainy days or sunny days. Such is the nature of awareness. Such is the nature of who you are! You are always present, no matter what the contents within your field of awareness may be. The sky is who you really are. The sky is infinite awareness,

Drop into this space in which the clouds appear, that pure, empty, awareness of being. Recognize this boundless awareness is ever-present. Experiences may arise and pass, thoughts, feelings and emotions arise and pass within this awareness. Awareness is the changeless substratum in which all change arises and passes within. This awareness is the essence of who you are.

The practice of being aware in daily life is just a natural observation of whatever is occurring. Just being, you are aware of whatever arises, stays for some time and then passes. This could be a bodily sensations, feelings, thoughts, and mental states. You see them as they are, objectively. Even aware if some aspects of you are reacting to certain experiences. Let go of all judgement and just be a kind and compassionate witness. This is all that is required. As your practice deepens you will become the witness that watches the clouds with love and kindness.You will connect with that which is real, that which never changes.
