Self shining presence-awareness is not the result of effort. There is no need to try to do something with the expectation that suddenly awareness will be there.
Presence-awareness is always here and now whether it is recognized or seemingly lost. It is not something that can be created or destroyed. Conceptual thinking is like the cloud that seemingly blocks the sun. Being at ease in non-conceptual naturalness is presence awareness already here and now.
Re-cognize again, and again, and again, and the knowing it is always so is constant in spite of what appears and disappears. Self-knowing, self-shining-- just this, nothing else.
