Immediacy of Being

Trying to focus on your true nature is something like looking for your eyes, when the whole time you are looking through them. If you try to focus on your being or aware presence, you will be trying to turn it into an object. Since you are not an object, you will be looking in vain. So just see this and pause. Being/awareness is here in all of its immediacy and clarity. THAT is it. Why should you try to focus "on" it, when you ARE it? See the concept and the error in it. Your being is not to be obtained. It is pointed to as a present fact.
