The awareness also grows gradually, but it occurs in a sort of “leaps” – it can seem for a long time that nothing is happening, and then you unexpectedly get aware of the fact that the field of your attention has expanded considerably. Its expansion is hard to notice and similar to a quantum jump: you suddenly realize that you see much more and deeper. This ability to see does not depend on your state or outer conditions; it is just there. It is a part of your changed being, it is independent and self-sufficient.
