Ever thought about the difference between the cloud of consciousness and focused awareness.

Neither have I.

Look closely at something like the sensation of your tongue against your teeth. Notice all the sensations. Focus awareness on the tongue and teeth. Also notice that you still hear sounds and there are a mix of other sensations that occur at the same time as this exploration of the tongue and teeth.

This focused awareness is appearing mixed in with the cloud of consciousness. They are not the same.

Interesting...

Hope you have an awesome day!
