is there an attitude that facilitates 'awakening' ?

things are flattening out a bit at the moment. Spent the morning at a funeral where it was easy to remember ...
then spent the rest of the day driving without much remembering.
Seems i need to read for inspiration. Hah!, Who need to read ? to get into an anticipatory mood ?
My mind wants a certain kind of stimulation then my body feels the right kind of excitement. To step back and see this (with my mind ) gives me (my mind) the impression of objectivity. Of course it is just a replay of what has already happened, so obviously this is also just a mind construct. Still it leaves me (my body) with the feeling of satisfaction that I am not lost in the content of thought.

When we are allowing, we include in our awareness what it is that is allowing, and that is Being,
which is who we really are

i can DO nothing. i can try to remember that i am. no, i can welcome the remembering when it occurs. (remembering = mind awareness - little 'a' awareness. Not the Awareness of Being)
This is still the mind, BUT, maybe it's an entrance to a portal for Being ???

last night i was here
today i am here, but now
here is not here, where?

I relate to the needing of reading ;-) and the anticipation and excitement that brings. Seems like I'm drawn to silent times of just being present and absorbing these perspectives, as well as reading. Our chat together began with your remark to Not read any of the recommended books. And yet most awakened people seem to have come there via a path of searching, reading, workshops, etc.
On the flip side I see so many seekers seeming to get lost in elaborate word games, trying to nail down all the shades of meaning. I'm thinking my path forward needs to be a mix of reading, dialogue, and observing my thoughts, reactions, emotions
