awareness

An aspect of the Buddha’s teachings that makes them distinctly different from world religions is that his main focus was on the importance of awareness. Awareness is the main healer of the split in consciousness that every human experiences, in early childhood, with the formation of ego, the identification with being a separate “me,” distinctly different from all other life. Awareness heals that split. Awareness is closely related, if not the same thing, as love–unconditional love, the big love. –Robert Hall, “Buddha Now”
