Excerpt About Mindfulness

Mindfulness & True Ground of Experience

...if we have the global awareness that comes through the development of mindfulness, it is possible to recognize that the true ground of our experience is actually a medium of awareness, rather than a collection of perceived objects. This medium of awareness that we call the soul has things bubbling in it. The bubbles are not separate from the medium, and the medium itself is self-aware. The bubbles are different colors and shapes: This bubble feels like sadness and that bubble feels like pain, this bubble feels like the idea of a bird, and that bubble feels like the thought of a person, and this bubble is an image of our home. All these bubbles are arising in the same medium.
