i find very little teaching on Vivid awareness, becoming 'very' awake, though this is a state i have at times experienced and have a friend who is in this state all the time. he says that he is just 'very awake', as if everyone else were a sleep walker.
what is the teaching on vivid awareness, vivid alertness. has anyone on this site come across such a teaching. if so, could you say a little about it please.
best wishes, Tom.
This could be C. Wright Mills definition of sociological imagination: "vivid awareness of the relationship between private experience and the wider society" but they way you describe it seems like you are thinking off rigpa. However if your friend is in that state all the time it isn't rigpa.
