We are often taught to pay attention or focus or concentrate.
But awareness is more than simple mindfulness.
Some teachers believe it is a state or source of awareness.
There are many ways to practice awareness.
Being attentive is like being mindful.
Being meditative or allowing ‘to be here and now’ as one does a meditation to practice being aware.
Another words, the proof is in the pudding, it is healing to practice awareness through mindfulness and meditation.
And education is key.
