Beyond Mindfulness – Full Flowering of Awakened Awareness
Likewise, when you let go of your effort to be mindful, you can sit quietly and imagine that you are the sky, without center or boundaries. Thoughts, feelings, images, memories, and judgments come and go in the boundless presence of awakened awareness—which is what you are fundamentally.
Everything is happening in you! As your understanding deepens, you shift from practicing mindfulness, to cultivating spacious awareness, to resting in openness, to realizing that this skylike openness is your very own true nature. The final realization that you are the openness, the boundaryless space, and at the same time you’re inseparable from what arises in this space, marks the full flowering of awakened awareness.
