Never Go Unnoticed

"Every wakeful step, every mindful act is the direct path to awakening. Wherever you go, there you are." - Buddha

Think of yourself as being in the center and having your attention drawn in two opposite directions: mindfulness and asleep.  The practice of being mindful is active and that of being asleep is passive.  It takes intention and self remembering to be actively engaged in mindfulness.

The mind wanders from everything contained in memory - desires, regrets, guilt, pleasure, images.  The wandering mind holds back intention and self remembering until it lets go due to the power of the Self.

Never let yourself go unnoticed by the Self that is always present.  The presence of Self is pure consciousness which is always aware of self.  But the veil of he mind obscures the view.  To sweep away the veil requires active energy, not of the mind but of pure awareness.
