Could you try pointing at yourself now?
Please do it.

What did you point at?

Re: No one here

Ok, you think that there are pure knowing and contaminated knowing. Please bear that in mind that there are none of such.

Re: No self

Hi! What is a body here and now in this moment? Face directly forward and please tell. Do you perceive everything you described about the body in the previous post? Which part of it is relying on memories, ideas (knowledge), or imagination; something you learned from books, teachers or other people?...

Re: No self

Re: No self

Is there any concrete thing that is to be called the "mind?"

Does the "mind" think thoughts?
If so, could you describe how what you call "mind" produces thoughts?

Re: No self

Hi Jackie. :) Sorry for the late reply.

Now, would you look at what "you" are, again?
Look if there is anything like an essence of you, anywhere.
