It is happen from time to time with the site.. as an advise - write somewhere in other document and when you are ready just copy paste it here. You will have the text in case that something happen with the site (or maybe the connection) while posting.Well I had a reply, went to review, walked away for a minute, and poof! It disappeared! (I feel there is something I'm me trying to sabotage this effort........ho many imaginary people are in here anyway?)
Determination (+ effort) is needed Nothing is on the way.
wonderful, keep noticing like this.I recognize more and more frequently that I have been "thinking", so am here, experiencing at least for a brief period after noticing.
And where is this seed exactly?There is a seed.
Can you point it. I mean literally - the way you point the screen of the computer?
How is that "seed" shows up in experience?
As an image, as a sound or as an imagination?
There is some contradiction between these two statements:
I only know there was a seed when I look back at the thoughts, and see the connection.
So look again, which feels more true?They are imaginary, so, the connection imaginary. I cannot experience it, except in another thought......there is no connection.
There is a connection between thoughts.
There is no connection between thoughts.
Thought, daydream , memory, imagining of past present , future........and, even decisions, even decisions which have prompted action......all of these have the same quality, of not existing!
You did a very good looking.
Thank you for sharing this with me. We will come back later on decisions, now can you please share a little bit more about this resistance?Some resistance especially to decisions which are followed by action.......even though, they are not dissimilar to decisions folowed by inaction........or, any thought for that matter. Eek!
It may carry a message for you. Sit with it for a while and ask:
"Hey, thanks for being here.
What do you want to protect me from?
Look again.I can observe the brain, at any time.
Can you observe the brain right now?
I mean literally?
Or it is pure imagination?
Good. We will come back here later.I actually have no sensation behind my eyes........just an idea,(yes, I know, no ideas allowed!), that's where awareness resides. (I think , this is because the senses of seeing and hearing are so strong........I know, no thinking!)
Of course, the dragon isn't there, isn't real........and even the thought isn't real.....there is resistance to "this thought appeared just as others do in the mind, therefore is also unreal. I didn't know I was going to create a thought about creating an imaginary dragon. Therefore, it would seem to follow, ok, it follows that, I am not deciding anything in regards to the thoughts in my mind, therefore, not deciding anything, therefore,..... Not in control.....oooooh!little foggy with that!
I didn't create this thought!omg! Who /what did then!!? (Yes, I know you are not going to answer.....)
Really, who or what make these thoughts?
Is there a thinker of thoughts?
Can a thinker be found in experience?
Look. Be like a hawk.
