The descriptions in this reading DO match my experiences. Bringing my attention back to Awareness repeatedly and persistently was an integral part of how I learned meditation, and perhaps that is true for many of us? Valuing and practicing that Awareness regularly is good for me. And there is the encouragement to recognize that the mental process of "distraction" itself: "paying attention to an interruption with larger emotional reaction" is not actually necessary, and only results in increased suffering. (That pattern of distraction IS however the basis of most media advertising, and "Selling News"). So, I remain a big fan of: "Reducing and ending of suffering" and practicing Awareness does lead me that way.
