There's no way to know for sure that the thought 'causes' the action, so it must be another story.
Thoughts are intricately woven - so it is always a good idea to have a closer look into the "Can it be known".
I'm not really anywhere. It's just stuff happening. Action. Awaring. Thinking and so on.
No entity I needed for all of this. It is ok that the story goes differently, just no need to believe it. ;-)
I see there's no way to know if something seen, heard, felt etc. is 'inside' or 'outside' based only on direct experience. Thoughts are needed to say 'oh, that's a plant out there, about 2 metres away', 'it's not part of me'. Thoughts are also needed to say 'me and the plant are not separate'. So it appears that there is neither separation nor no-separation without thoughts trying to explain.
Yes, there is no inside nor an outside.
Separation comes via thought.
No Separation isn't got intellectually. Thoughts can say "All is one", try it, say it out loud: All is one! There is no separation at all!
What happens? Do you get it?
There is more a sensing, feeling it to be so, experiencing it to be so. Once one opens the mouth one is back to the world of separation and words are very inadequate in describing what is.
So thoughts try to explain but can fail terribly.
Go on with the flow of Happening, feel how the stream flows or how the thoughts win the flowing. Both is fine. Go on observing what stops the flowing with the moment and what makes it easier.
Just observing, no judging, no right or wrong. What is felt when flowing with the Happening, what is felt when flowing with the thoughts?
