It is interesting that awareness always has an unbroken continuity to itself, although in at least two different ways.
First, there is the familiar form. I am here as pure awareness – unbroken, also when my human self lies down and there is an abrupt shift from darkness to daylight, or from evening to morning. Others see this awareness as coming and going in my human form, but to me, I am awareness free from coming and going.
Then, there is the other form of unbroken continuity. I awaken more fully to myself as pure awareness, unbroken even as my human self lies down and sleeps. Again, I may appear to come and go to outside observers, but I am here in an unbroken continuity even through deep sleep, and even possibly through the death transition of my human self.
In both cases, I as awareness am always here to myself, free from coming and going.
The difference is that in the first case, there is a gap in continuity in the world of phenomena. And in the second case, there is no gap in the continuity of the world of phenomena.
More accurate phrasing
More accurately, I can say that to me – as awareness – I only am, free from any continuity or lack of continuity. The continuity or lack of continuity only comes up to outside observers, or when I observe others.
When someone observe me, they can say that there is awareness (when my human self is awake), and then there is not awareness (when my human self is asleep). And I can say the same about others.
In my own experience, it is very different. I am awareness and the world of phenomena is sometimes continious to me and sometimes not. And that is it. That is all I can say.
I see that in my experience of myself as pure awareness, time does not to apply. I am awareness, and I am the flow of phenomena – sometimes continious and sometimes not.
