It's called mindfulness of mindful awareness. Then there's another form of meditation. That uses month RAs or centering prayers to go to the source of thought which is your consciousness, then there are other meditations, which are self inquiry or contemporary says inquiry. In my personal meditation practice. I use a combination of all of the above, so I usually sit reminding with mice closed, and bring my wariness to my heart and observe, my breath. And that is the mindfulness part of my practice, then I engage in self enquiry asking myself mentally questions, like, who am I what do I want to semi grateful for what is my life purpose? I don't try to answer the questions. I just asked them and I just watch any sensation image feeling thought it's Tennessee arises, and then I very frequently would practice mindful awareness or just sound or one of the senses owned or color or taste or smell fragrance or.
