In the moment of actually looking, yes I can see it experientially.When you say “I know that is just a thought, and not something actually real”, then do you see this experientially moment by moment, or rather you have an intellectual understanding based on the memory of a previous looking?
“ I am believing the thought stories” is literally just a thought, I can’t actually find it as anything but a thought.
Sometimes it is just an intellectual understanding, & sometimes I can see it in experience but it feels sort of foggy, not crystal clear.Is this an intellectual understanding, or it’s an experiential recognition right now?
Yes I understand and I am trying my best to only write what is actually seen in the moment.So can we agree that you try to clearly communicate what is clearly seen now, and what is just an intellectual understanding in this moment based on a memory or a logical conclusion?
Right now reading your question and looking, ‘Mandy’ is only a word on this screen and a thought/word.. literally.The body is a body, it exists. But where is Mandy? Does Mandy actually exists as a living/thinking entity?
The body is labelled by thoughts as ‘Mandy’, but does this labelling make the body into a thinking individual, into a real person, Mandy?
NoIf you label a chair as Sarah, will the chair become a thinking, living entity/individual?
Sitting here looking I can’t find anything that identifies with the body. There is just a body typing words and thoughts coming and going. Thought says “this is my body” but I can’t find an actual “this”..”is”..or “my”, only a “body”.What is it that identifies with the body, and calming the body to be me or mine?
Thoughts are claiming that the body is a Mandy. And “Mandy” is the experiencer of what is happening.What is it that is claiming that the body is not just a body, but a Mandy with all of the story of Mandy, and the experiencer of what is happening?
