What about awareness that brings about immediate action, where the seeing is the action? Have you ever experienced this? I am inattentive and I become aware of my inattention. This awareness brings about attention.

Yes. Then one is beyond the intellect in attention, which is seeing. The intellect is thinking, chattering, analysing, which is inattention (in regard of selfknowledge). The mind must be quiet to perceive, to see , to be aware of what it is doing, of what is going on.
