Yogi: Do we just be aware, aware, aware, and then wisdom will surely arise, right?
Sayadaw: Naturally, if awareness is present, wisdom must be present too. But for some yogis, they focus too much – as a result, wisdom is weak.
[Yogi’s notes: Awareness has to be light and relaxed for wisdom to arise, not an awareness accompanied by focusing which freezes the object. When that happens, the mind is paying attention to concept object hence liking/disliking or confusion comes and wisdom cannot arise.]
