Our bodies, heart/mind have sensations, impressions, associative memories. All of these arise in awareness are known in awareness and end in awareness. Every moment we have the choice of focusing on the objects of attention or leaning into the awareness that knows the objects of experience. When awareness is our refuge rather than identification with the objects, we discover peace, equanimity and joy.
