I'm not going to waste my time on postings that try to define what is or what is not.

That's just ridiculous.

Awareness is experienced because of mind.

All issues from mind, being mind, in mind, coming from mind with nowhere to go except into mind.

It stands alone.

Mind is nothingness.

Paradox. You. No parts.

nah....awareness is mind and body.

the attention ( the mind ) is awareness to a point.

sure its made of nothingness.

but awareness is it.

besides you CANT get rid of the feeling of existance.

just like you cant get rid of mind.

mind and body are one.

mind isnt seperate from body ( awareness )

awareness permeats the body.

What you are perceiving is your reality.  It is probably safe enough to say that your perceptions are the embodiment of your buddha nature.

If you feel hot you are hot.  If you feel cold you are cold. 

It doesn't matter what others are or are not perceiving.

Expecting others to perveive what you perceive, or expecting to perceive the same things as everyone else, won't get you anywhere.

If you could stand still with your mouth open, and hold a twig steady under your tongue, birds could build a nest in there just as with any birdhouse. 

But you would probably be unable to resist eating the eggs before they hatched.

huh.....im NOT percieving my own reality.

im percieving the one reality we commonly share.

and if i feel cold it might be cold out.

and what other think and feel and perceive is important to me.

and it sure as heck will get me somewhere.

helping other sentient beings.

youve been TAUGHT!

hahaahahaha.
