"The only mind that can sense life in a transformed way is a simple mind. The dictionary defines simple as 'having or composed of one part only.' Awareness can take in a multiplicity of things, just as an eye can take in many details at once. But awareness itself is one thing only. It remains unchanged, without additions or modifications. Awareness is completely simple; we don't have to add anything to it or change it."
