The main characteristic of SELF-REMEMBERING. With divided attention, you are simultaneously aware of yourself and your surroundings. The arrow of attention or awareness is pointing in two directions at the same time: with one arrow directed at yourself and the other directed at whatever you are seeing or doing in the moment. This is in contrast to undivided attention, which is the main characteristic of IDENTIFICATION. When you are identified, attention is pointed only one way—outside of yourself. With divided attention, you keep something for yourself—your own presence—and presence starts to become stronger.
