Path to Pure Awareaness

Pure awareness is your very nature. The problem is it has been covered over with desires, fears, values, emotions and on and on. One of my favorite gurus, Nisargadatta Maharaj, was asked, "What is a fact?" Nisargadatta replied, "What is perceived in pure awareness, unaffected by desire and fear is fact."

Self discovery and awareness are very big parts in the path to pure awareness. One's values (being unique, special, important, etc.) are all about ego. It is the ego that keeps getting in the way of pure awareness. Once you know who you are on the lower self level and can see your ego at work you have become the witness - the big Self.
