Being Aware

While vacuuming the meditation room one day, it occurred to me that I can only Be Awareness by Being Aware. At that moment my head banged into the doorjamb.

One can only Be Awareness by Being Aware. This means that if we are not being aware, if we are in thought, effectively we are not being awareness. So to say that one is always aware is simply conceptual. Mostly we are unaware.

Rather than seeing awareness as an object and using mind as the subject we should be seeing mind as an object which can only be from the space of Awareness as the Ultimate Subject.
