Can you be aware without thought ?

The following are the thoughts that insert themselves while being aware:

1. Worry of any kind
2. Fear of any kind
3. Anger
4. Naming process (for example as you are moving in the forest you observe your environment and when you look at a tree you implicitly know that this is a tree) . The way around it is to see shapes, colours and sizes but it is impossible to be this way all or even most of the time.
5. Joy
6. Happiness

Dear friends, have you ever observed without thought intruding ?

Also I would like to draw a distinction between consciousness and awareness. Consciousness is the residue of awareness in the mind. Awareness is not of the mind but is the fundamental substratum of existence. The equivalent of awareness in the mind is consciousness or memory or the thinking, naming process.
If you are aware of what you are, without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation ~ Krishnamurti
