awareness cannot be seen or known

That we know this awareness exists means only that we have an idea of awareness.

We do not see that awareness as itself an object, nor can we ever do so.

If we are to know the awareness by itself, first we would have to drop knowing its objects, its reflections in thought, including the ego-thought, and then be it, not see it.

– Paul Brunton, Notebooks
