But isn’t saying that the mind seems to be in the head, just another idea?It if exists, it seems to be in my head, but I have no direct evidence that it does in fact exist
This is how it SEEMS. But a SEEMING thing is not a real thing.There are just thoughts appearing, seemingly inside my head
Just as a mirage seems to be a real oasis, but in reality there is nothing there.
Are you sure that you haven’t just replaced one image / concept with another one?I don't - thoughts just appear in awareness
Sit down, close your eyes, and think of a car.
How does the visual thought of a car arrive? Is it your doing?
What do you do EXACTLY for an image of a car to appear?
How do you make that happen?
Is there a storage place somewhere hidden where all the visual thoughts of cars are stored, and you go there and you choose and pick which one do you want to think of?
If not, how does that particular car appear from all the possible cars that could have appeared? What do you do EXACTLY to make that happen?
Are you the chooser of the color?
What do you do EXACTLY to the car to be a certain color?
Do you make the color to happen?
And what about its size and brand? Is the size and the brand your doing?
Can you observe a mind, or an I, or a self creating the image of a car?
Please repeat this exercise several times a day. Also experiment with other objects, life imagining an apple, a flower, a cup, etc.
