Inquiring into Awareness
These questions are not designed to be answered with the mind. They are intended to invite exploration into the questions, to the experiential answer. They are intended to invite attention to explore its Source of Awareness and become familiar with it. In other words, we want to explore the nature of Awareness with our attention.  Am I aware? What does it feel like to be aware? What does the experience of just being aware feel like? Is there a stillness here? Is there a sense of peace here? Is there a sense of just being aware here? Is there a sense of aliveness here? Is there a sense of existing here? What is it that’s aware of all that? Is this aware stillness what I am? Am I just Awareness? Is this person I call “me” just an experience in Awareness? What is it like to just be Awareness? Does this Awareness feel contained by the body, or is the body contained by Awareness? Does this Awareness have a location, or is it everywhere? Does this Awareness have any limits, or is it infinite? Does this Awareness come and go, or is it ever-present? Does this Awareness ever move, or is it always Here? Does this Awareness have any preferences, or is it all accepting? What is it like to just be aware? What is it like to know yourself as Awareness?

Meditative Self Inquiry - The Senses
Meditative Inquiry After I ask each of these questions, repeat them over and over again (out loud or in your mind) and direct attention to where they are pointing. There will be a one minute pause after each question, but you are welcome to pause this and sit with each question for longer if you feel so inclined. Sights and Sounds You can use these questions to explore your current perception of the world. What is looking through these eyes? What perceives what’s being seen? Is what I’m seeing being seen from behind my eyes, or is it being seen where it is? What hears these sounds? Are these sounds being heard in my head, or are they being heard somewhere in space? The body Direct attention toward the feeling of aliveness in the body. Close your eyes and get a feel for the energetic experience of the body. Once you are feeling its  alive energy, ask the following questions: What is experiencing the body? Is the experience of body just a sensation floating in an aware space? Is the body is being experienced from all around, both from inside and out? Am I this aware space that experiences the body, or am I the body?  The mind The following questions become the thoughts you are investigating when you think of each question. From where do these thoughts arise? What hears the voice of these thoughts? What’s here prior to and in between thoughts? Where are thoughts being perceived from? Are these thoughts appearing in my head, or are they just appearing in an empty, aware space? Am I this aware space, or am I the thoughts?
