Awareness Itself Never Changes
No matter what happens to the body-mind-"self" while you live, you are always merely aware.
The awareness itself never changes.
Even while you are aware of changes, the awareness itself never changes.
There are not different kinds of awareness—different colors of it or different shapes of it.
Awareness is, simply and only, awareness itself.
No matter what happens in the body-mind-complex,* awareness is merely and simply aware of the process of the body-mind-complex—and awareness itself is never affected by change.
Awareness itself does not go through changes.
Awareness merely and simply observes changes.
Awareness itself is the in-depth mere witness.
If you are not reality-intelligent in the moments of change, then, every time there is a change, you identify with the change.
"I am that change, then," you think and say.
When the body is suffering, you think and say, "I am suffering."
When reactive emotion arises, you think and say, "I am angry, I am sorrowful, I am afraid."
That which—in and as Reality Itself—never changes is, in its superficial daily-ordinary state, constantly presuming itself to be changed, and to be a change.
In this moment, it is painful—in the next moment, it feels good.
The daily-ordinary ego-mind is constantly identifying pure awareness (or the in-depth mere witness) with the changes that are peripheral to it.
If you inspect awareness itself, if you enter into it most profoundly, you will clearly see that awareness itself does not change, but it is (simply and only) the in-depth mere witness of changes.
