Re: Die before you die

“I can understand…” – when you use the word ‘understand’ do you mean that you can see this experientially or you just understand it intellectually?. I can see this. Mental images are formed when attention is pulled to site of a sensation. The sensation itself actually tells me nothing other than th...

Re: Die before you die

.And is this similarly clear that if there is a mental image of body showing the location of a sensation, that image is not a ‘reliable source of information’ about sensation? Hi, Not sure I fully understand. But image is an image in the mind. It is not the actual sensation or area where sensations...

Re: Die before you die

Hi, . But if you look, is there any link between the sensation and the sight? In other words, is the sensation ‘coming from’ the sight (labelled as hand) or only thoughts and mental constructs link them? Can you see that both the ‘visual sight’ and the sensation appear simultaneously but ‘separately...

Re: Die before you die

Hi . ‘Hand’ as such cannot be found, other than a label. Since in actual experience there is only sensation, mental image, visual image, and the label. But no hand as such. Can you see this? Yes that makes sense. . If you look very carefully, you’ll find that there are some parts where the sensation...

Re: Die before you die

What I’m pointing at that the word ‘body’ points to nothing else than sensations! In reality, there is no such thing as body. Body is just another mental construct. Morning, yes I can see the first sentence. But the second sentence, this image of a body in my mind is very strong. And I find it very...

Re: Die before you die

Hi Vivian, thanks for the reply. I have spent a little time with the questions and hand exercise but it has been so hectic today. Really sorry, I do feel bad, as I appreciate the time you are putting in to respond and the fact that you reply so quickly but I will need to take some more time with the...

Re: Die before you die

Hi, Also, there might be mental images arising with the content of a body part being covered with clothes. But that is not the actual experience of ‘a body part being covered with clothes’, but the actual experience of a mental image. Is this clear? Yes . Does the sensation itself (labelled ‘body pa...

Re: Die before you die

Hi yes I'm going to start from the beginning. Can it be known how tall the body is? Does the body have a weight or volume? In the actual experience does the body have a shape or a form? Is there a boundary between the body and the clothing? Is there a boundary between the body and the chair? Is ther...

Re: Die before you die

Is there such thing as ‘mind’? What is the actual experience of ‘mind’? Hi, no mind I'm just using it as another way of saying thoughts. So, is it totally clear that there is no such thing a chooser or mover? Is it totally clear that there is no such thing as choice or free will? If not, please wri...

Re: Die before you die

Sorry this is continuation, my daughter wanted her laptop back , so I've switched devices. Regarding the belief how can there be movement within mover. Yes I can see this is a belief. It does contradict direct experience. I cannot find a mover. The mind wants to argue these points but I think that i...

Re: Die before you die

Experience is not divided into a perceiving subject and a perceived object which are connected through an act of perceiving. There is only a seamless experience. Can you see this? Yes, the part where you wrote there is no distance between the appearing thought and awareness of it......there is no a...

Re: Die before you die

What is the actual experience of an ‘urge’? What is the actual experience of ‘restrictive energy’? The urge is actually, desire. And I realised that it's actualy a feeling, that arises. And then either I move in response to the desire or an argument begins in the mind, as to why I should not follow...

Re: Die before you die

How is the movement controlled? Does a thought control it? Who or what chose which hand - the left or right hand for the exercise? When the head of a sunflower turns to the sun, what is moving the flower? Is there a ‘mover’ somewhere inside the flower to turn its head? When the hand is turning up a...

Re: Die before you die

And does this SEEMING awareness have a location? Not sure, I don't know what awareness is. I know that i am aware, or that awareness is here. That's how thought and sensations are know. I can't have a direct experience of awareness. Its just the name given to knowing, and it's just wherever knowing...

Re: Die before you die

What is left of awareness if all the objects (sight, sound, smell, taste, sensation, thought) are removed? ? I don't think there would be anything. Its impossible to do. I cannot separate awareness from bodily sensations. I can clear my mind of thoughts briefly by meditating focusing on the breath ...
