Types of Hacks
Awareness hacks are very simple. One test of a good hack is that it is simple. Awareness is always here, it’s just overlooked. It requires one to unhook from thinking for just a moment and look.
One way to categorize awareness hacks is by the mode of perception. If we include thought as a perception then we have:
- Awareness Before Thoughts
- Awareness Before Seeing*
- Awareness Before Sensation
- Awareness Before Touch
- Awareness Before Sound
- Awareness Before Taste & Smell
- Awareness As Space
The ‘before’ means before we start interpreting perception. Consciousness is before. Before is like a door that can open wide into an expansive, open aware spaciousness.
*As sight is our dominant sense, our thinking-categorising brain constructs substantial, complex interpretations and mind-maps of what we are seeing. We tend to see these mind-maps and not what is true before us. So Awareness Before Seeing can radically challenge and change our way of experiencing ourselves and the world.
