“The forgetting of our true nature is the source of all psychological suffering, and, conversely, the remembering of our self – its remembrance or recognition of itself – is the source of peace and happiness for which all people long.

This returning of awareness to itself, its remembrance of itself – being aware of being aware – is the essence of meditation and prayer, and the direct path to lasting peace and happiness.

Awareness is always present and aware of itself, but seems to cease knowing itself as it truly is when it loses itself in objective experience.”

-Rupert Spira (from, Being Aware of Being Aware)
