Awareness 4

Are there better kinds of awareness? Is there a better subject for awareness that whatever happens to catch at our attention? If by chance we happen to learn or are taught to anchor our attention on our breath, we gain a valuable advantage – to see one thing clearly rather than magpie-like, alight our attention only on scattered things. We can be assured that:
1. breathing is always present;
2. once learnt the trigger will regularly bring our attention back to the breath; and
3. unless in a highly charged state one will always have enough concentration to spare to watch our breathing. Indeed the very watching of our breath can act as a control over our more unconscious and irrational states of mind.
