You’ve replied way too quickly, so you didn’t have sufficient time to look at each questions many times (50-100) before replying. Looking and seeing no-self is not a one-time event.
Looking is about constant repetition. Looking for the same thing again and again, at least 50 times a day or more.
In that book there is a specific selection of guiding threads, which is not a clear representation how it happens to everyone. For many people there isn’t one single clear shift, rather it’s a gradual and repeated small recognition of how things are.But everyone says that there is a really obvious shift. What does that shift look like? Its a widely talked about thing, sounds like a shared experience amongst LU Gatecrashers.
So that’s why I asked you at the beginning to stop reading anything, since those provides the fertile soil for comparison. It cannot be known in advance how the shift will be. Whether there will be just one clear one, or several small ones. So please don’t expect any fireworks :)
But it doesn’t matter what thoughts say. Not at all.Thoughts say "It can't happen to a sensation, sound, taste, image or thought"
The only thing that matters is what can be seen/experienced directly WITHOUT any thought interpretation.
Again, it doesn’t matter what the thoughts are about… what they say…No believer I can find, thoughts say "believing is only a concept in thoughts"
We are not relying on thoughts, not even expecting the thoughts to change (what they say, how they say it)
Since it’s not about thoughts. But about experience.
Just because you cannot find the self, it doesn’t mean that you can stop searching for it.
This whole inquiry is about repeatedly looking looking and looking and not find.
This repeated looking and not finding will bring about the realization.
So, I’m going to give you the same questions again. But this time spend a whole day looking again and again. And don’t just look in a certain designated time, but look throughout the day, in the midst of everyday happenings (even if just for 10-30 seconds each).
And what does seeing through the self happen TO?
Believing? And WHAT is it that believes in those words?
There cannot be a believing without a believer. So you have to find it.
Where is it? Where?
Also please list to me the places where you looked for the believer.
