What is “Being Aware of Being Aware” ? 1

Oh, now in the previous entry “What *is* Dzogchen Meditation” if you listen to the video you’ll hear Alan say “where you are able to sustain a flow of awareness of awareness” and by way of contradistinction in the following video Rupert Spira explains what he means by the experience of “being Aware of being Aware” (which I am here equating as being equal with what Alan says) :

Rupert : What is “it” that experiences Being Aware ?
Questioner : I guess I would have to say “itself”
Rupert : That’s what I mean by the experience of being Aware of being Aware … exactly right … What else could experience Awareness other than Awareness ? Because only Awareness is Aware

Indeed, AFAIK “attention” is of the (karmic) Mind whereas what Dzogchen and Advaita Vedanta are both pointing to is in fact our Primordial Awareness (or Consciousness) as distinct from one’s ordinary dualistic Mind … the implication being, I’d suggest, that “you” are NOT your so-called “self”, however “real” and “persistent” it may seem, it is merely an Illusion eh ? 😉
