We all experience a sense of continuity in our lives, and assume that it is our individual, personal experience.

But what if it is not? What if continuity belongs to core awareness, and isn’t personal at all? What is it that has been wholly present during each thought, each event, each weather change, each knurly feeling, each memory?

Core awareness is the thread that binds experience together, not the imaginary, separate self. That separate self–each thought, each feeling–comes and goes. It slices and dices the beautiful whole and then jumps in to claim ownership for the whole shebang.

  1. blessings to you in your new home. I feel just as close to you now as when you lived a few miles away. In keeping with your thoughts about continuity – awareness doesn’t measure closeness or distance in the way the mind does. Without the thought that you’re gone – you’re here, in this very moment.
