Being Aware

The purpose of all meditation practices is being aware of just what is going on in the present moment and paying attention in a particular way.

Many practices have been developed that aid us in being aware of our body, our breath, our physical sensations, our emotions, the space that we occupy, the time of the present, the sounds around us, the color of the rose, and much much more.

The wonderful and renowned India philosopher and writer Krishnamurti puts it like this:

Meditation Practices Can Still the Mind - Jiddu Krishnamurit

Jiddu Krishnamurti around in the 1920s

Being aware does not mean learning and accumulating lessons from life; on the contrary, to be aware is to be without the scars of accumulated experience. After all, when the mind merely gathers experience according to its own wishes, it remains very shallow, superficial. A mind which is deeply observant does not get caught up in self-centred activities, and the mind is not observant if there is any action of condemnation or comparison. Comparison and condemnation do not bring understanding, rather they block understanding. To be aware is to observe, just to observe, without any self-identifying process.
– Krishnamurti
