Lucky for us, we just need to be good enough for it to work for P. You can go a lot further with this in terms of spirituality.But the beyond mindfulness you speak of sounds ideal
I guess it takes a lot of practice to achieve though?
I'd say all of the "masters", Yogananda, Ramana Maharshi, etc, they work with this "Beyond Mindfulness". Realizing the "I AM" as awareness. It is about shifting the whole point of perception. As we can observe the physical body from our mental mind, we can also observe our emotions and thoughts from the mental mind, but it is possible to shift our point of awareness from the mental mind to the spiritual mind. The "I AM" that is behind the whole thinking process. As we are aware of the thinking. What is the "I" that is aware of the thinking?
