I would prefer to not feel such a strong separation. people who have realized they are not separate still get to function properly in this world. the cause of all suffering is this separate entity feeling. so i would love to feel unity. i may not hurt people or feel hurt by people in that case.Would you prefer not to feel like that? We can say that the feeling of being a separate entity has more than one function in our relation with the world. Example: it is very likely that you would not run to avoid a speeding car if the feeling wasn't there.
all you say is true. i see another body, i hear words coming from the mouth of the other body. i feel reactions, sensations and thoughts in response to those words. all this is interpreted as me listening to something i like or dislike from a different person who is that other body with a mind.Can you have a closer look at that feeling? Is it more than a bunch of fluttering sensations that sometimes seem to be linked to a story that seems to make things personal? Is the feeling a feeling or is it connected to the existence of a real you?
even without any of such interpretations, when i am doing nothing, there is a feeling of me, though it feels much more vague.
i can see that i cannot find something tangible called me. but it seems to not make an impact. sometimes when i read or listen to certain things, there is a feeling of it sinking in, and causing a change that is impactful.What would you hope would happen?
what do i hope will happen?
if it actually sinks in that there is no separate entity called me, i will accept what is happening and not suffer. i will not consider others as separate and not get hurt/hurt them.
well, you might say if there is no one to accept or suffer/not suffer, how will this happen? i dont know. i am just fed up with this small self just making my life miserable.
