OK. This feeling is important. Since this gives the impression of there being an autonomous, independent self/me doing things. So we have to dig deeper here. Since this needs to be seen a lot, otherwise you can be easily fooled by it in the midst of your everyday life when not looking and investigating.It incredibly moves by itself, and there's no focus-er. Apparently there's one, by clearly there's none. And I say "apparently" because there's a feeling as if the combination of attention plus thought is "me", but I'm not claiming that's the way it is, it is just how it feels: thoughts + attention is Manolo
So stay with this FEELING of the combination of attention plus thought is "me".
Just stay with it and FEEL it.
Where does this FEELING is located in the body?
When you don’t call this feeling anything, when you don’t give it any name, when you don’t label it, then what can you discover about this feeling, as a feeling only?
OK, so you are using a metaphor here. My question is:As much as the bird that is singing outside. Does the sound of the bird controls the attention? Nope. Sometimes the attention is in that sound, and sometimes in the thought. But neither controls the attention. The bird might start singing louder and the attention will probably move there for a bit, but then it will switch back to thought.
Do you actually see this in this very moment experientially, or rather it’s an understanding coming from logical thinking?
