Don’t follow the object (2)

Being continuously aware is very important. If you want continuous awareness, you must see, you must know that awareness is present or not. If you follow the object, awareness can’t be continuous. If you check that awareness is present, the object is already there. There is no need to follow the object, no need to focus on the object. It’s a waste of time and energy and not necessary. If you notice your awareness is present the object is already happening. You don’t want to fixate on one object. With any object, you just want to know that nature is happening.

—Sayadaw U Tejaniya, Dhamma Everywhere (p. 102)
