Awareness is in body-mind.
Happening of realization is where: unknown.
Functioning is by body-mind.
Body-mind organism writes that "I" have no way to interfere with "it".
Yes, on to the next post on duality and words.

The objective of Self-'realization' is for the body-mind (jiva); this is understood.
