My noticing the tremendous importance of attentiveness has helped me be slightly more attentive. Entering reality means noticing what is. A wise person told me that when I most desire to not be attentive is the time I may need it the most. I am reminded of the ancient saying which states: "The way that can be said is not the way." I am reminded of reading that Einstein believed God was the universe. In that sense Thomas Keating's statement is very helpful: "God's first language is silence. All else is a poor translation." I'm also reminded of the wise statement: "Nothing ever happened in the past, and nothing ever will happen in the future. Everything that happens, happens now, or happens not at all." I'm also reminded of Gandhi's statement: "There is no way to peace. Peace is the way." Paraphrasing Gandhi one might say, there is no way to attentiveness. Attentiveness is the way. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
