Awareness is the primary faculty. Without awareness nothing could be known. When we acknowledge this most basic of knowledge then we have keen insight into the nature of reality. We see that the essential nature of all experience is this perceptual openness. We see that this relaxed seeing is needed for anything to be experienced even experiences such as "anger" or "depression". When we recognise this for ourselves then our whole perspective of life gently changes and all of the descriptions that seemed so compelling can now be approached with openness and ease.
