3. Examine the nature of unborn awareness.
In case we get too excited about regarding all dharmas as dreams and drift into fantasy and dreaminess, this slogan brings us back to simply looking at the mind. Mind is unborn because it has no discernable beginning, shape, color, texture, history or even existence.
At the same time, mind is awareness because we do perceive things. We can examine this awareness and wonder, “Who is it that is aware? Who is doing the thinking?” This is the essence of mindfulness meditation practice.
