Not quite. The absolute, the one with no second, is no-thing appearing as all these forms, which can include seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, smelling, thinking, feeling, and other forms of sensing. This appearance keeps changing. However, there is nothing separate from the absolute. So seeing is no-thing-seeing; no-thing and seeing are the same. There is no subject nor object. There is just seeing, complete and whole.

Awareness would be awareness by X of Y.

But X and Y are the same. There is no space for awareness.

Regarding grass: no-thing is a changing appearance of grass. This appearance seems to change such that it “grows” towards no-thing as changing appearance of sun. The grass is not even rudimentarily “aware” of the sun. The grass is the sun is the light is the movement is the no-thing.

None of this can be understood.
