The difference definitely only feels like a shift in beliefs because it’s just a sense of mental relief when I consider that “I” don’t actually exist in terms of a doer behind experience. It does just feel like a seeing through of some of my faulty beliefs and logic... when I consider it.
Yes, but it’s still a very important discover, since this faulty belief and logic has completely blocked looking.
Let’s go back to your belief:
But the fact is is that all of these perceptions are known. So it’s just inferred that they would be known by something. But it can’t be experienced because all there is is experience.
So you state some facts here (green), but with a faulty logic.
So the problem is the red logical conclusion.
It’s very important that you see it again and again that this belief is just coming from a faulty logic.
The next step is to see that ALL logic (faulty or not faulty) comes from thinking only.
So whether a logic is faulty or not, is still just an intellectual theory.
What would you do if you wanted to learn to ride a bike? Would you just read lots of books about it, and just watch on TV how cyclists do it, and then just think and think and make logical conclusions about how you would do it? Would you be able to actually learn how to balance and ride a bike?
Or would you actually have to sit onto a bike and try it for yourself to make it experiential, to make it real?
So now, you have to LOOK in practice, not just keep everything on a theoretical level.
Now you have to let go off all logical thinking and theorizing and spend your time on actually looking at experience, to see what is actually happening. All right? Are you willing to do that?
Please put the focus on the feeling of the self/me and tell me how is it felt?
Please don't say that there is no self, but tell me how self is felt here now.
Rather search for the feeling that relates to the me.
