Is there a separate entity 'self', 'me' 'I', at all, anywhere, in any way, shape or form?
Was there ever?
No the is not and there never was. Just consciousness and its contents where the "feeling of being something (me)" includes.
Explain in detail what the illusion of separate self is, when it starts and how it works from your own experience.
Describe it fully as you see it now.
It's basically a thought . You're "in" a thought when you're feeling separate from anything that's appearing in consciousness. And you can first start to glimpse it, but you might not realise that that is what you're "searching" for.
How does it feel to see this?
What is the difference from before you started this dialogue? Please report from the past few days.
It feels clear. It feels like now. The difference is, that I can function out/as of this open awareness. And do it in a way that I don't need to be my thoughts and feelings. It also helps me to understand people (even "bad" ones) that we are in this together. That love is the foundation of this whole being.
4) What was the last bit that pushed you over; made you look?
I was doing metta meditation while the music was on when trough love for myself made me see that there is no I and everything else. There's just love and contents of consciousness. And it hit me so clear that I was in the clouds for couple of days (sort of speak). Just becouse I have realised that this is always how everything has been all along.
5) Describe decision, intention, free will, choice and control. What makes things happen?
What are you responsible for?
Give examples from your own recent experiences to how this works.
Decision is based on your information and how you process it, or you can decide on intuition. But there is a limit for what is able for you to decide. Based on your influences and environmental factors. It's always the "right" decision, becouse you cannot make another decision.
Your intention should always come from the place of selflessness. And with goodness. Thoughts and feeling can lead to not so good intentions.
This makes free will an illusion. You can't decide what you think of hear or see. So all the influences throughout the life are just coming to you. So you cant decide the thoughts you're thinking and if you reactively act from impulse of a thought, it is not by your choice.
BUT you are responsible for your actions, either you can help them of not. And seeing the world in non-egocentric way can help you act out of the place where you can not react and act based on thought alone.
6) Anything to add?
You're doing great work here! Live changing work, and "I" am forever grateful to you!
