The path to the path is generally as close as we get to the path. The path to the path is everywhere. Anywhere. It is all a matter of keeping our eyes open and walking the path we are on, being alert to the choices we make as the path branches, forks and dead-ends. What is guiding our choices? What is leading us along the way? Why this and not that? We have to home in on our motives, fears, desires, interests and seek what drives us, pulls us, pushes us and how that squares with what we realize/become aware of in the silent moments of our life. And spend more time being quiet in an intentional and deliberate way. When we are quiet, what comes to us "from outside" us? Or "from inside"? What is our heart and our body saying to us? What are we aware of beyond thinking/wanting/fearing? The trick with awareness is to just be aware without engaging the objects of our awareness, just observing, just watching, just seeing, just knowing... Then we tuck this away in our awareness, and continue being aware of what arises in the silence. Awareness leads to realization and realization leads to action, and action enlarges awareness, and we find ourselves doing things we would never have thought to do, automatically, spontaneously, in response to realization hatched in awareness. And it is all a part of the path on the way to the path. Walking with awareness is the path on the way to the path.
