Sorry, I tried to answer the first 2 in one.
Underneath thinking there is sensory experience- vision, sounds, bodily sensations- and emotions which seem to set thinking off. There certainly is not a self directing the thoughts; thoughts just arise.What is here underneath thinking?
I mean the human that people (including myself) refer to when they say Chris. ‘Chris’ is a label. ‘Person’ is also a label; it doesn’t refer to any singular thing, it’s just a shorthand we use when speaking to each other.What do you mean by “the person known as Chris is here”?
What does the word ‘person’ refer to in this sentence?
If I’m anything, I’m all my experiences combined- thoughts, sensations etc. Strictly speaking, there is no me.So what are you then, if not the story of Chris?
Experience is always happening; I can’t just switch it off (unless I die). I have no say in the existence of my experience; it happens without any consent.Can you ever not be here?
At times I feel like I see all there is to see, but it keeps coming and going. Sometimes I seem to forget and have to sit and really concentrate to see it again. Is this normal or is there just more work to be done? I was thinking it would just click and then I'd always be able to see it without effort.
