Lately, this looking has been sort of obsession for me..anytime any bit of spare time, I have been engaged in it..
Excellent! You're closer than you think!!
There it is! Awakening boils down to being aware of this very moment,(Separateness is what gets in the way...Being at one with our selfs and with the moment is key here...) seeing that thoughts just come and go and are basically phantoms in a realm that will never co inside with this reality. Consider thoughts for reference purposes ONLY.Most of the times this looking results in slipping out of thoughts and somehow feeling of awareness in the body..and thats where it usually ends..I'm curious to see how it is unfolding
It's the realization that the mind thinks BUT these thoughts don't come from an illusory entity called a you...It simply doesn't exist!...No thinker just thought!!...It's better to be "caught in the moment", than stuck in your mind! ;^)
It's just direct experience that's all...Let go of the rest. It's really all just in your head!although there is a sensation of I doing the looking that I can not deny.
No looker, just looking.
This is a weird but true analogy...Computers work in sort of the same way as we do, in that the hard drive is used for storage and recalling information. But the processing is done on the motherboard...All this is done in our brain yet we have been conditioned to believe that these two are separate, We in fact are one life amongst many...Not separate as everyone tends to condition us to believe. Every living thing (especially animals) are one; and a part of this Beautiful world we live, we all belong here together.
Tell me what it is you feel are thoughts or stories that point at a specific "you"?
