I keep identifying with this tension somewhere near my eyes. I see through it, I rest as awareness, but it eventually comes back. Rinse and repeat.

Ok. My advice is NOT to see through it nor rest as awareness.

Every time, observe it anew, without pretending that you know something
about it. If it remains a problem, that means something remains unexplored;
and preconceptions only hinder the explorations. :)


Now ...


What is making sense coming and going, and coming back a problem?
Doesn't a feeling that you want to urinate come and go, and then come back later?
What makes these two different?


Please observe that particular tension again, and describe it.
This time, please look if that tension has any kind of moving nature.
Does it move, or, do you feel it wants to move somewhere?

Hi,
Thanks. I'm glad you sensed my frustration. I tend to make negative emotions from myself and others a problem.
So this tension. I observe it and it seems to want to expand to the whole sense field. It collapses when im not looking.

Hi. :) You're doing great, Killua.

The important thing is focus here. Let's get this done together and
let life explore itself further, ok? :)


What is this "I" when you say "It collapses when im not looking"?
Who is the one that looks? Who is the one that doesn't look?

I'm misattribution this "I" with body sensations. This "I" that I think is collapsing is fictional. The looking is looking.

Hi. :)

The looking is looking.

What about breathing, walking, eating, etc., ... and living?

Hi Killua. :)

It's all just a happening.

Is this an intellectual understanding, or rather an experiential
one? Please consult your gut feeling whether you are just theorizing or not.

It's experiential, but only for glimpses. It doesn't last. It doesn't come back usually unless I orient my mind to it and rest.

Do you feel that this is a problem?

Who is the one that "orients the mind t it"?

What is "it" to which the mind is oriented?

What is the "mind" that is oriented to it?
