There is a direct line through mindfulness to formless awareness. Simply release the “self” associated with mindfulness and awareness reveals itself in its full expanse.

2021-08-23 Loving Witness Meditation | Monday Night 27:51
Jack Kornfield
Notice as you feel the breath, that who you are is not this breath, or this body, but you are loving awareness, the loving witness. You are consciousness itself—open, spacious, letting the breath breathe itself. Experiences can rise and fall in a field of loving awareness. Notice how emotions, feelings and thoughts rise and fall like the waves of the ocean; you are the loving witness to them all.

2021-08-23 Loving Witness | Monday Night Talk 45:31
Jack Kornfield
In any moment you can become the loving witness—it’s why we sit in meditation. We learn to sit with both heartbreak and love—with whatever arises. We become the loving witness of it all. What channel do you turn to amidst the joy and sorrows? With mindful loving awareness we can see it all anew. When we see with amazement, with loving awareness, we also see with the heart. As Mary Oliver writes: “And therefore I look upon everything as a brotherhood and a sisterhood…. and I think of each life as a flower, as common as a field daisy, and as singular…. and each body a lion of courage, and something precious to the earth. When it’s over, I want to say all my life I was a bride married to amazement….”

Exploring the beginning instructions reveals both the fullness of a “self, trying,” and the emptiness of a “self, in surrender.” Our world view changes according to which we pursue.
