Saw a post of a friend of mine which I’ll paste below. Interested to see fellow growing apologists assessment and insight on this and starting points to address this way of thinking:
“Awareness trumps observance
Often we think of becoming the observer - Non identification with doing. This observer-notion creates another identity for the ego. A state no more far-reaching than an unconscious attachment to one from which liberation is sought. Although useful, the observer notion can be an all consuming mind loop. This is not to say that it should be relegated. Far from it.
In steps awareness…
Awareness offers a playing field for doing, being and observing. Whilst each of these three render great learning possibilities, awareness holds no judgement over the game being played on the field. The end score is not the ultimate point of arrival. There is no ultimate destination, only relative moments of perceived stasis and movement. It is awareness (it is YOU) that is the space in which all these states find themselves arising.
