For what it's worth

I am awareness.
You are awareness.
They are awareness.
All sentient things are fundamentally just awareness.
Mindfulness is not getting separated by 10,000 things from awareness.
Relative awareness gives rise to bodhichitta because for all our differences we are the same, we are just awareness.
Not knowing what we really are we identify with the 10,000 things which gives rise to suffering.
Awareness of this gives rise to compassion.
Absolute awareness is shunyata.
Shunyata is pure awareness, freed from self and other.
Direct experience of shunyata gives rise to wisdom.
Shunyata by its very nature is luminous.
Luminosity awash with love.
The 10,000 things are like clouds the float across the shunyata sky.
I, you, we are the clouds.
I, you, we are the sky.
In meditation we gradually return home to pure awareness.
Fearing loss of awareness, we fear death.
