Ha ha, you are funny again. So true!“You cannot get rid of unicorn, where will you find it? Also, where will you "get rid of it to"...where to put the damn thing?”
“I” was trying to do it, but I would never be able to achieve that.Who is getting rid of "I"?
Ah, I see, so that analogy that many use is not true at all. “I” is not a wave or the ocean, because there is no “I”. Of course! I love this teaching. Thinking that “I” is a wave that one day will realize that “I” is the ocean is a nonsense. It will be seen that there is no “I”. “I” is not and will never be the ‘ocean’. It is so freeing to see this, to know this because there is nothing left for the “I” to do. This “I” will never see or become anything."I" is like one wave looking at the other waves, telling the other waves IT is the ocean. This is silly, just because it can make the statement doesn't make the statement true.
Yes, “I” cannot find no-self in reality, just like I cannot find non-Unicorn in reality.“What the hell are you expecting to find? Work with this. How can you find "non-unicorn" in reality?
No, it just is totally unaffected by the “I” and thinking.“Do you think that awareness that is black and silent needs to change or is going to go somewhere?”
No, this would never happen. “I” was thinking that.“Do you think that thought can insert a no-self for you to see so you can tip over? Who is thinking that?”
Yes, everything appears not so personal with a change of language. I have seen the benefit of it today:“Try changing your language around to reflect what you are uncovering. Say "body has tension. Frustration present in the body. There is thinking. There is a twitch in the foot." Drop I, me, self labels for a while.”
Observing of the body is happening, looking through these eyes is happening, there is a feeling that emptiness is looking, body is in that field of nothing. Body is used to experience.
Thoughts come up, thinking is happening, there is awareness of thoughts, they still appear more personal than the body, but are being observed too.
Yes, changing of the language from now on.
When this body woke up in the morning, there was a total blank of “me”, but there was awareness. Something was looking for a thought to remember “my” role. This took some seconds to remember. Then this body fell asleep again, and when it woke up, the same thing again. There was confusion, looking for this person it supposed to be. Then there was remembering of the name and circumstances, the role that is played through this body. Like a quick check and grab and then “I” knows what to do and what to be.“Go about your work in a relaxed way. Breathe, be nice to yourself. Note what comes up around the "I" from that.”
Then many times today, there was this great feeling of love and joy that would come over, just like yesterday. It was just there. Moments of bliss. “I” was not grabbing on to it. No-self is not about moments of bliss. Yet, it is so loving and freeing.
