Nothing to defend
The plague of point of view can take us out in an instant if we buy into points of view as being solid and real. With the instinctive recognition of the basic state of awareness as our identity, there is nothing to guard or defend. There is no need to try to understand this intellectually or from anything that we've learned. Only by gaining familiarity with the natural inherent basis of awareness can we embrace the unflinching stability and pervasiveness of the soothing energy of awareness. We do this by taking a short moment of rest and repeating it many times throughout our day, until it becomes automatic. The natural movement of awareness is wide open acceptance, loving kindness, willingness, and benefit that supersedes all points of view.
