I would say it’s in the upper chest area with the size of a hand /palm. No, a feeling cannot know anything at all.Where is this feeling? Can you find it to within an inch? Does this feeling know anything about a 'center' or an 'I'. Can a feeling know anything at all?
A clear experience (touch, sound, taste…) can be found in AE. An unclear experience is a feeling like feeling lost, feeling happy, feeling tired…What is the difference between a 'clear' and an 'unclear' experience? Can 'clear' and 'unclear' be found in AE or are these just thought (labels) about experience?
The sensation of the soles is a continuous (almost not changing) feeling. The sensation of the hands is intense at the beginning and loses the intensity over the time. So it’s a kind of a changing feeling.Now compare the sensation of the soles of the feet and the sensations of your hands...what is the difference between them?
Thought would say one is a little more ‘intense’, but apart from that – any difference?
Ok., I think I understood now. ‘Reason’ is a thought. So happening just happens without reason.This is just another thought about what happens - possibility or no possibility are just concepts or ideas about something. And it does not answer the question. The question asks what says there has to be a reason for something to happen? Why the need to allocate a reason?
I agree, ‘when it doesn’t matter…..’ is a thought. Yes, normally a thought comes in before the action saying ‘I’m going to choose’.Isn't 'when it doesn’t matter what I choose or if I don’t know what to choose' also a thought that comes in after the choice is made? Cannot a thought also come in before an action and say, 'I am going to choose'.
No, I didn’t find an I when doing the looking. I don’t know what is doing the choosing. I cannot find anything that is doing the choosing. But…. if I’m e.g. buying a pair of shoes I have the choices size, colour, money, comfort….. So after balancing everything I choose pair A and I know thinking was involved. So how can I buy/choose just any pair of shoes (without thinking)?Did you find an "I" when doing the looking? If not, then what is it exactly that is choosing? Something is happening (that we call/label 'choosing'), but can you find anyone or anything that is doing the choosing?
So, what you mean is that not choosing is also a choice? ;)You could go stand at the top of that hill and try and decide you are not going to choose for 24 hours. See if a choice is made :) Let me know what happens... ;)
