Everything that we experience in life is the contents of our awareness. Perceptions, thoughts, emotions are all the content of our awareness. How do we know that we, that other people and the world exist? Because we are aware of their existence. The facts of existence are the contents of our awareness. How do we experience our world? We experience them as thoughts, sensations, feelings, moods, and images in consciousness. All that exists is awareness and the contents of awareness. It is the ground of being in which the contents of awareness arise and subsides. To know this and to feel this is to have a grounding in universal awareness. Our world is only a “qualia gestalt”, a perception in our quality of awareness. To be able to be grounded in that understanding is moving in the direction of an enlightened awareness.
