No ideaWhat exactly is it that is awake?as far as I am concerned I am awake
No where there is no “I"Where is the "I" that is concerned?
NoTo “be” with arisings points to their being an experiencer of experience. Experience can be found, but can an experiencer of experience be found?what can be done other than be in it’s arising?
Its experienced like an object passing throughLook carefully at the following:
A thought is known, right?
I don’t knowWhere does thought (known) end, and the knowing of it begin?
“I" have a sense of some kind of observer separate from the thought itself but its not a solid thing. Its definitely not a dividing line its as if they are sort of arising and floating away togetherCan you find the dividing line between the knowing of thought and thought itself?
Yes “I" looked and there is no “I".where is the “I” that is experiencing “what I am experiencing” – did you look to see if you could find that I?
I am experiencing what I am experiencing”.
Yes "I” looked and found it to be all thought content. Its just that “I” don’t know how else to tell you about “my” DE and about my feelings/experience which you asked me previously to do.
Did you look to see if that was all thought content?
Are you afraid of getting the answers wrong?
I agreeThere is no wrong or right answer from direct experience.
My experience in DE is one of watching(sensing) the DE
where is the ‘My’?
There isn't one. There is no “my”.
No - I cannot find a separate watcher or senser but its as if there a sort of membrane or breath wrapped around the DE or the thought is a whisper wrapped around the DE - its very subtlecan you find a watcher or senser of direct experience?
Direct experience is purely “colour” (image), sound, smell, sensation, taste and the knowing of thought. It helps if you can use brackets or “speech marks” to clarify the experience.
e.g. colour (thought content “glass ball”) etc BUT make sure you also look to see if glass ball can be found, otherwise we can get into a game of just re-languaging everything, rather than looking closely at experience.
Can you find “touching” or just sensation, can you find hearing or only “sound”?
touch and hear
I find sensation.... “touching" is thought content
I find sound .... “hearing" is thought content
