Re: End of Story

Adil I am going to take a break in our discussions. I am going to read others responses on this site and review our work this far. I'm hoping to regroup and will reach out again when prepared to resume. Thank you for your time.

Re: End of Story

Adil, not sure memories (thought content) have no basis in reality and that is partly because viewing time as real. It is very difficult to see how thought content is being created without the existence of time. Due to AE being "in-the-moment" there can never be AE of the past. The definition of AE ...

Re: End of Story

Does your belief "I was 2 years old" bring that girl to life. No IS there a 2 years old girl there ? No How can you experience her ? I have not AE of her now. You said thought content is not real so what is this "memory" ? I understand that thought content is not actual experience, but an AE (of ti...

Re: End of Story

Adil, I am struggling with "what is not actually experienced does not exist!" Perhaps I can not move forward until I accept this. I know that what happened when I was 2 years old is not happening now but "I" believe it did happen at one time or that this experience happened. Does wearing a police un...

Re: End of Story

Adil, when my thought ceases there is only being and sensations. There is only what is happening! Experiencing no self is happening occasionally however sense that something is separate from objects perceived exists. Also a hang up exists with the concept of time. Past, present, future are labels bu...

Re: End of Story

Now describe the back side of the object. How is it known what the back side looks like? I cannot describe the back side as I have not direct (in the moment) experience of it. What tells what it looks like? How can it be known that there is a back at all? That the object is 3D? Can this be known in...

Re: End of Story

What is that entity ?
In what form ?
Can you locate that "entity"?
This entity does not exist because "I" is an idea/thought. This entity cannot be located.

Re: End of Story

How come there is an idea that "I" can dislike anything? "A" cannot dislike anything. There is an idea that "I" can dislike because the mind says "I" is separate from anything/everything. There is an idea that "I" can dislike because the thought create a subject that acts upon things. Wanting and p...

Re: End of Story

1) With eyes closed, can you confirm that what is experienced is 'blackness' as I mentioned? Yes 2) Is there anything else in 'seeing' other than 'blackness'? No 3) Can what is witnessing the blackness be found? It appears consciousness is witnessing he blackness. It seems like "I" choose what/wher...

Re: End of Story

Adil, when I do this exercise it is comforting to see the gap between thoughts. It is difficult to not cling to the thoughts as they arise. This exercise definitely challenges there being a "doer" or "thinker" as thought just happens. I notice the impermanence of things and that the mind creates "re...
