No. That one just fell away once it was looked at. It’s strange now looking and seeing it clearly doesn't point to anything.In the past you said things like: “I am the mind”.
Is this still how you perceive yourself to be? Are you the mind?
I can’t find anything when I look. Which some part is having trouble accepting. But when I don’t look there is a sense of being here, it’s defined by sensations. It’s defined by what it’s not. Attention or awareness of what is happening. It moves about but there seems to be a tether that draws it back to the head and thoughts.How and what do you perceive yourself to be exactly?
Generally the impression is I am the thinker, or there is an acceptance of what is thought. But when I look, I can't find a thinker or where thoughts come from or go.Do you perceive that you are the thinker of thoughts?
When I look, I can't find a feeler, just feelings. But in general the impression is I am the feeler.Do you perceive that you are the feeler of feelings, emotions and sensations?
Once again, when I look I can't find a hearer, but the general non-looking state reverts to me being the hearer.Are you the one who is hearing sounds?
When looked for, there is no see-er, but it seems like the combination of all the senses when attention isn't being paid props up the idea of there being someone here.Are you the one looking out the eyes form inside and seeing the world out there?
Sorry, up until the last sentence I could see, but "There's no one to get nothing" is an intellectual leap.V: Is this something you clearly see experientially, or rather this is just an intellectual understanding?A: It occurred to me this morning that there is a belief in a "self" and anything that can be is used to support that belief. And recently, “I don’t get it” has been coming up. Which is funny, that "I" that doesn't get it just points to more sensations. There's no one to get nothing.
We've been at this a long time, and when we started you asked me to look for the self and I've been doing that. It seems there's a growing acceptance that there's nothing to be found. And the only real expectation at this moment is that there will be a recognition of something, but a voice is going "Why is this taking so long? What am I not getting?" Every time "I" is used in thought and there is an awareness, I try to find that "I", but there's nothing. "I" seems to latch on to anything sensation-wise in my body and say "here I am" until looked at. Knower, needer, controller, owner. Does every label need to be looked at?
Anyway, looking now for who needs to "know".
