so can you see both future/past/memory are simply thought right ?
How can reality evaporate without thinking and why it is dangerous?
It is impossible for reality to evaporate but understanding of reality will evaporate. Without labeling and placing meaning on sensory data (sound, sights, tastes, smells, sensations) there is only experience and little if any meaning. I’m projecting and making assumptions instead of looking with acceptance, noting the difference between direct experience/reality and the labels and understanding we pile on top of experience implies/reveals there is awareness and happenings with no particular destined outcome. Seems everything is meaningless resulting in fear and discomfort happening.
You look and see that these are just colors, these are just sensations. How can it be dangerous ?
The looking itself is not dangerous but the discoveries and realizations that come from looking FEEL uncomfortable. Dangerous to the degree that living seems pointless without ability to influence happenings and discover greater meaning to what is happening.
When having lunch, became aware of:
Seeing a spinach and meat, simply= image/colour
Thought about what to have for dinner, simply=thought
Smelling vegetable, simply = smell
Feeling the pressure of jaw chewing, simply = sensation.
Thought about how rare it is for thought to be in-the-moment rather than future, simply = thought.
Tasting the meat and seasoning, simply = taste
Hearing the fork hit the glass bowl, simply = sound
Hearing sound machine, simply = sound
Feeling texture of meat against tongue, simply = sensation
Thought about next task on ‘to do’ list, simply = thought.
Thought about how thinking distracts from seeing and hearing, simply = thought
Adil, I hope to share a few more looking examples with you tomorrow but wished to get you some initial response.
