Localisation and non-localisation - Sam Harris Daily Meditation 2022.09.28

Comments and expansion

Notice if the feeling of awareness feels located anywhere

Sam Harris again uses a pointing-out instruction that aims at deconstructing the "feeling" that awareness (or attention) is located at or in a specific point.

The topic of localisation has been explained in detail here.

A note regarding the formulation

The formulation is complicated: the meditator should notice whether a feeling feels located. So, Harris does not say "notice if awareness feels located anywhere". That would be simpler than having the meditator represent the feeling of awareness. I assume that this is some sloppiness :-)
