Problems are Caused by Divided Attention

Problems are caused by thinking and action of which a person is not fully conscious. Obviously, if you are at all serious, your primary interest is in what creates full awareness, not in what creates further fantasy and division. Awareness is not so much created, as it is in seeing what blocks awareness. It is awareness of unconsciousness.

Inattention is caused by division; it is a division that pulls you away from what actually is, what is happening in the mind and the world. Divisions of identity, of the divided groups and doctrines and the following of figures and systems distort the mind by pulling attention, dividing it, away from what is right there in front of you. Most of the havoc of the world would be averted if this constant division ended. It ends by seeing what it is and what it does.

And this negation is true action and awareness, not divided and distorted by divisive thinking and imaginings.
