Awareness is primordial; it is the original state, beginningless, endless, uncaused, unsupported, without parts, without change.
Consciousness of being conscious is already a movement in awareness. Interest in your stream of consciousness takes you to awareness.
Realisation is but the opposite of ignorance. To take the
world as real and one’s self as unreal is ignorance. The cause of sorrow.
The same mirror that shows you the world as it is, will
also show you your own face. The thought 'I am' is the polishing cloth. Use it.
