Yes the seeing and hearing appear to be separate.

Sorry, I meant, are seeing and awareness of seeing separate?

Seeiing and awareness are not separate. However, I am also aware if my eyes are closed.

Please close your eyes and attend to the raw experience of color;
without the idea that you closed your eyes, what was it that really happened to
that color from before you "closed your eyes"?

With my eyes closed thoughts of the colour appeared then disappeared and then an image of the colour appeared then disappeared. With my eyes closed the colour is no longer in my awareness or my attention is no longer on it.

Ok, as you did now, please focus on what IS here and now, not what you think is
here and now; got the difference?


Now, when that black color is seen, where can you find something called "awareness"?
Could you search for it, rather than taking for granted that it is somewhere?

When I search for it in the now as you said, I can't find awareness, it has no place, no location, it is not something that can be found or located in one particular place.

Do you still believe something called "awareness" exists as
something concrete or lasting, permanent?

You're making me question my belief on awareness :-) The truth is if I look at my direct experience I can't find an awareness that is concrete, lasting or permanent. So the answer to your question is no I don't.

Hi. :) Did that answer come because you think you should answer in that way,
or did you actually observe and that became obvious?

If the latter is true, please describe how you "looked at your direct experience."


Warmly,

Hi

I close my eyes, searched for what is here now there is a black reddish flickering colour, there were thoughts and an awareness of the flickering colour and thoughts. Based on your question, is the awareness concrete, based on observation is concrete or solid I can't touch it or find it.
