I wonder if Awareness is simply observing what arises; without judging it, trying to change it, or even believing you or someone else “caused” it (You “causing” it satisfies the illusory Ego self’s desire to believe it’s in control, but it is just that, an illusion).
Regardless of whatever you “feel” about whatever arises (whatever you feel are just emotions arising as well) just observe it.
Regardless of whatever thoughts, opinions, beliefs, or attitudes you have about whatever arises (these are just thoughts, opinions, beliefs, or attitudes arising as well) just observe it.
All of these arising are just impermanent arisings. They don’t really mean anything!
Being aware of this, observing this, IS Awarness! It helps you see that the YOU that you thought you were, is illusory as well.
