Interesting aspect of J. Foster's life ... he suffered from depression. Seems a common symptom to several wel...

Greater' is an appearance/object in awareness.
Awareness cannot be greater,
Thanks Awareness,
that is clear.

It's just that sometimes I wonder if

What I ask is how can it help?
Does it facilitate greater awareness?
