Re: A Feast of Lanterns

Thoughts are noticed, but can the content of a thought be experienced in DE? The 'contents'? no. Appear? Are you not sure? Can you ever be sure? Well I guess I wouldn't be on this path if I was so 🥴 I'd have to say no again to both. How is it known that there appears to be a thinker and that it app...

Re: A Feast of Lanterns

Thank you for your patience. I'm back. Think of what you had for meal this morning. Can what you had be directly experienced now? Only residually, my stomach says "I've just eaten"! but the taste of it, no. That's a memory, direct experience of a thought rather than a sensation. Are you the thinker ...

I'm not sure what the relevance of being in the room is as hearing's as good as seeing at least in so much as one believes the eviden...

Re: A Feast of Lanterns

It’s my experience - at least at the moment - that mind is not found in experience. It’s what creates it. Makes it possible. I can’t find teeth in what I eat, but I know they make eating possible... they are an agent if you like. I don’t want to seem argumentative or trying to be clever. It’s just t...

Re: A Feast of Lanterns

It takes direct attention. It feels like directED attention. Intention. thoughts may arise but to put them in order and make a decision requires a decider, a director. The analogy would be driving a car.. my brain perceives - almost unconsciously - lots of different incoming signals but some 'one' n...

A Feast of Lanterns

LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this? That there is single, stable controlling 'self' - the supposed object of praise, criticism or ownership... What most people would call ... an ego. What are you looking for at LU?
