I didn't exactly see this, but instead the idea came to me, and it feels true.
This IS a SEEing.
Sure it came to you in the form of a thought, but it wasn't arrived at after torturous logic. It was a spontaneous arising of recognition, wasn't it. Am i getting it right?
Yes, it wasn't a logical conclusion, the idea just appeared to me.
What it says is that there really are no separate things anywhere, there's just this experience. The mind works by analyzing things, dividing them up into pieces, and so no thoughts are true, because there aren't really any separate things.
Yes, yes. Perfectly said.
Go on... tell more in this. Do you also see how the 'self' is constructed by thoughts and then those thoughts interact with ideas of separate things. It is All thought, all mind, all construct, concept, illusion ?
Can you resonate with this ?[/quote]
I was looking at what I said above, that there are no objects anywhere, and then asking myself how I can exist, since I am supposedly some sort of object. The answer is that I'm just a belief, a mental object. I don't exist anywhere else, the mind is the only place I can be.
But a belief isn't alive, a belief can't have experiences. I can't be me and be just a belief.
