Note to self

Something I did not get about mindfulness for a long time and I have to remind myself of this frequently:

The trick is to be aware of being aware of my experience. So instead of monitoring the contents of what is being perceived and thought, be aware of the process of being aware of that.
So when I hear ,I try to be aware that there is hearing instead of being aware of the dog’s barking. If I think something, I try to be aware of the fact that there is thought instead of focusing on the content of the thought.

A good trick is also to try and look at your experience through the body instead of as the body.
The body is the instrument I use to experience this world, it is not me.
I am the awareness.
