Nobody teaches like this – if you remind yourself ‘What is the mind aware of?’ awareness becomes present. Everywhere you go, they only teach you to be mindful or to try to be aware.
If you remind yourself, awareness is already there. I too practice like this in daily life – I just think ‘What is the mind aware of?’ instead of try to be mindful. If you think the right way, awareness is already there. It is faster and better than trying to be mindful. It comes naturally; just reminding: What is the mind aware of? Already, awareness is present, naturally. That’s why I recommend to yogis to think about how to practice; just reminding themselves. That’s lighter and better.
