So a thought is identifying with another thought? Are you sure about this?I find the I as a thought which gets Identifies with thought like I am thinking..
Is this even possible? Is a thought a living independent entity with its own free will and actions, so it can notice another thought, and identify with them?
What can a thought do?
Is a thought a living entity?
Can a thought notice another thought?
Does a thought have volition and free will?
Can a thought think?
Can a thought identify itself with other thoughts?
The thing is that you are thinking and theorizing and speculating.I do not know if I am looking it clearly.. Might i need more pointers to see...
What I see is only continuous flow of thought, I is also a thought - a story that we have been told to believe. This created a separate personality, separate self that we have been believing throughout our life. This Believe created an Identity and the glue to this identity is this story of the self which is persevered as a separate self. Like I am an engineer, I am a doctor, I am writing, I am a genius.. this all are label of a separate self that we are believing, we are. But upon looking this all believes falls down.
It’s not coming from looking, but rather from logical conclusions.
Dear Vikram, your intellect is NOT needed.
Actually, it’s in the way.
Honestly, your intellect is utterly useless in this investigation.
Reality doesn’t need thoughts to exists. Reality doesn’t need intellectual analyses.
Reality is very simple.
But if your focus is on thinking and not on experiencing, that you cannot see the simplicity of experience.
How identity is experienced in this very moment? By which of the five senses?
And how does identification is experienced in this very moment? By which of the five senses?
And what is the difference between experience and thinking?
Your problem is not the lack of pointers, but that you are not looking into the direction of those pointers, since you are thinking about the answers, instead of investigating your own experience.I do not know if I am looking it clearly.. Might i need more pointers to see...
Please go back to the previous questions I gave you about identity, and look with them one-by-one. And reply to them one-by-one, don't bulk-reply.
And what is it precisely that identifies with thoughts?
What is it that needs an identity?
What does identity stick to? What is it that it hooks onto?
What is the glue of identity made of?
