Yes, they are thoughts dancing around. But they appear to/in something. Is that not true? That "something" is what I refer to as me.
In this awareness here and now. It is a dancing hall for the whole experience including the thoughts.
The statement "nothing is true" suggest that something is true, since even the statement "nothing is true" is not true. It's a paradox.
I meant nothing of the mentioned. „I“ is nothing of the above mentioned.
It is a label and you can label whatever you want as „I“ but believing that there is some separate self controlling and doing the life is delusion.
Yes, sure. I will find no THING behind that thought. But who say's that I necessarily am a THING? Why must I be an object? If I'm not an object, then I can't be found as an object, right?
Those are still only thoughts defending the belief in self. Just look at it.
Can you be found as spirit/soul?
Santa Claus. That's not the same thing though. If you point at yourself saying "I don't exist", then who is doing the pointing? None?
And when I say -you don't exist- it is a finger pointing to the moon. You need to look at the moon, not at the finger.
Besides, Santa is an imaginary appearance that is observed.
It is never observed, not directly, not in reality. It is imagined character, like some movie character.
This is about knowing what can be directly experienced and what belongs to the thoughts-realm. They are making together this life experience.
The Self never appears anywhere.
Maybe because it doesn't exist :)
Even the thought "I" is observed, is it not? Isn't it observed by "something" that never appears?
Sure, there is observing of thoughts, also happening in awareness. All belonging to this experience here and now.
