Hi there

Welcome to LU. I would be happy to help you with your inquiry.

In order to see through the illusion of the self you first need to know what you're dealing with.
For instance:
that the "I" is an illusionary "entity" that actually doesnt exist nowhere other than in our thoughts.
This sounds good but you need to go deeper:
What is the "I"? Where is it located? If the "I" is in your thoughts, did you actually created those thoughts?
What else do "you" identify with?
What stops you from dropping those glasses right now?

dear andrei

thank you so much for taking the time to guide me.
my problem is that i totally "understand" this whole topic but it doesnt "sink deeper" than in my mind.
evrthg sounds logic and understandable but thats about it...
What is the "I"? Where is it located? If the "I" is in your thoughts, did you actually created those thoughts?
the i is nothing but a thought that is located in my mind and that comes out of nothing, just like other thoughts.
i is for me also the body because evrthg i perceive comes thruough my body (eyes, mouth, ears, skin,...).
but at the same time i know that the body is in my "I". i can perceive the body, so i cant be the body....
i is also a feeling of identity for me.
what stops me is the year long conditioning of this i. - at least that is what makes the most sense to me.
who creates those thoughts? they appear in my mind. they come from nowhere (?). they just pop up.

what stops me is the identification with this i. - also a supposition...

kindest regards
eric

Hi Eric,

my problem is that i totally "understand" this whole topic but it doesnt "sink deeper" than in my mind.
There has to be a blockage some place. No worries, I'll help you find it.

i is also a feeling of identity for me.
So, is it more like a sensation?

i can perceive the body, so i cant be the body
What does the perceiving? Is it awareness? Are "you" the awareness?

i apologize for this chaos that i created....

kindest regards
eric
